What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Action, Initiative and Diligence

If you know these things, happy are you if you do them. John 13:17
Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22
Focus on the immediate little steps of love to take, right in front of you as opposed to far-off goals of grandeur &
splendor.
Its the tiny little faithful actions & deeds of love that make Love the greatest thing in the universe.
If you just stick to the tiny little actions, deeds & steps of love, youll be doing just whats necessary to bring about the
triumph of good over evil, and youll be doing just fine.
How can you assume that youll be ready to lay down your life for another someday, by some grand endowment from on
high, if youre not willing to take the little steps each day to show others that you care for them, that you consider their
happiness and satisfaction and care more important than your own?
The World knows enough big mouths. What it needs is to see action.
Whatever you may say: tiny deeds of love will always speak louder than words. What convinced people that I was the
Christ were not only My Words, but ultimately My actions: the miracles I and My disciples performed. And through My
Words I want to give you the faith to do miracles yourselves. Just remember, the way to get to those big miracles of love is
via tiny little stepping stones of faithful deeds & manifestations of love toward Me and your fellowmen everyday.
Action in the spirit will ultimately also result in the kind of physical action that will reap spiritual and eternal results: fruit
that remains, the bull's eye of My plan for you.
Sometimes you have read My Word all your life, and yet you have never really lived it, never really gotten the point of that
passage you memorized or read or heard a thousand times. "Yes, I know all that," you say. But, have you ever really tried
to live it and to experience it, to put it into action and to the test? Have you found out how happy you can be if you don't
only know these things but actually do them?
"Forward, march!" is the motto of the day! Time to attack! Testing & training time is over. All further training will happen
right on the field, where you will see and experience it much more intensified, much more real.
I've been preparing you, and it's time to take the theory & put it into practice.
"As they went, they were healed. You've got to do the wenting. Once you get in motion, each will find their calling, their
strength & personal ministry. What matters is that you get going. Sometimes, in order to get a car started or a boat off
shore, all hands on deck have to get out & push, even the driver, or the captain, & once the vehicle or vessel is underway,
each one can assume the position they're best at.
To get your boat going, you might have to make a sacrifice & do what you don't feel to be your calling so strongly, even if
it's something you don't like to do or you have trials doing.
Because there's such a need right now to save the lost souls which are otherwise going to be lost to Me for this age, I'm
calling all hands on deck. It's an emergency situation, a red alert kind of situation, where even the captains have to pitch in
and row the life boats in order to get them saved.
An attack is definitely a change, isn't it? It may be a passive attack, as in when you're being attacked by the Enemy, or it
can be an active one, when you take the initiative, but in both cases, it signifies change. In the first scenario, change is
inflicted on you, and you must take it passively. In the second, you determine what impact the change is going to have.
You take the initiative, leave your camp and go out to "change the world!"
If you make changes instead of merely taking and accepting them as they come, then you take the initiative, and you call
the shots, you're on the offensive, and not on the defensive.
You've got to partake in the battle in order to really feel part of My army! You've got to do the job in order to get paid.
You've got to obey to be blessed, do the "wenting" to get healed... You've got to do your part in order for Me to be able to
do Mine.
It's taking spiritual action concerning the matter that counts. There isn't much you can do about it in the physical, &
getting upset won't help any! But you can command Me whatever you want Me to do concerning the situation, and trust &
believe that it will make a difference, and it will.
I can get you places, but you've got to "rub the lamp" or say the magic words that are going to make your carpet fly, so to
speak!
You can't just passively expect Me to do something about it. You've got to tell Me what you want done & how you want Me
to take care of a situation!

The notion that things are just going to fix themselves under the right conditions is wishful thinking at best. It requires
some attention and elbow grease to fix problems, not avoiding, but confronting them, dealing with them, working on them.
You can't ignore even the smallest problems & simply build over them. If you have a faulty basements or foundation, the
whole building is going to collapse sooner or later, and I'd rather have you rebuild the foundation from scratch over & over
again until you've got it right, than risk a whole bunch of people getting hurt by a carelessly built house collapsing around
their ears.
No team can work with only one party giving their all & the other giving as little as possible, just in case it might all
collapse. You've got to have faith in Me, that everything in your life truly does come from My hand, and whatever thy hand
findeth to do, whatever the situation or task before you, it was meant for you to do it with all your might.
I put a project or challenge before you to roll up your sleeves & show what you can with it!
Employ your elbow grease in it and give it all you got in order to make it work.
What's stopping you from giving them the love that they need? What's stopping you from obeying My counsel, from
putting it into action and from doing more than just merely "being there" passively, waiting for lightning to strike you in
order to bring you back to life?
Life is in your hands, you've got the key of life, you've got the power to give, to love, to create, there's nothing you can't
do!
Is My power all just theory in your head or do you actually believe it, act on it, use it?
You've got to put it into action! You've got to make it happen & just do it!
It's time for you to quit being a hearer only & start being a doer. Quit deceiving your own self! How do you deceive yourself
by just being a hearer of the Word instead of being a doer? By believing the Devil's lies that it won't work for you! That it's
all good & nice & may work for others, but not for you, for whatever reason... You're not good enough, you're not worthy,
you don't have enough faith... to hell with all that rubbish! It's irrelevant, just like all the other baloney the Devil concocts in
order to get your focus off your goal & off your task.
Believe it, act on it, do it & send the Enemy back to hell where he belongs!
To love does not just mean to passively & reluctantly tolerate. To love is reaching out, actively going on the attack & doing
something to alter your "neighbors" state, not blaming them, but taking the responsibility to do something about it!
The little things you can accomplish by striving for the gifts of humility and faithfully doing whatever you can to really
unselfishly be of help to others for them to make it on their way, that's what I consider mighty works.
"Come on down, walk on the ground with Jesus!" You're not going to do anybody much good up there, floating high above
everybody else... You'd be much more of a help right down there in the nitty-gritty, pitching in with all the little things that
need to be done & that are necessary in order to make life smooth & workable for everyone.
Obedient action will get you places! You're better off knowing a little less and doing a little more than vice versa. It's better
to do than to know, and, of course, best of all, to know these things and do them...
It's not time for any more words, it's time for action. Get your mind set on the task at hand. The task is winning and
warning the world, spreading My message, My Gospel.
It's time to get serious about your work. Determine what your goals are, focus on them & pursue them & work at them until
you will have achieved them!
It's no longer time to haphazardly do whatever you feel like doing, but focus & concentrate on the sheep, and the best
possible way in which you can do your part to reach them!
When you've accomplished something, don't rest on your laurels & feel self-satisfied, but realize that whatever you
happened to accomplish is only a small beginning & a tiny step towards a larger goal, & you shouldn't stop then, but use
the momentum to look around what you could do next.
There's no more time for coasting along in "idle." In order to fulfill your destiny, you're going to have to apply some elbow
grease!
While My Words can give you the faith and some incentive to take the initiative and the vision, when it comes down to it,
the decision and final choice to actually do something about it is all up to you and needs to come from you.
I've poured out & supplied you with the counsel you needed, the necessary assurance of all you need to know to get
going. Now you just need to put it into action and actually do it. The doin' it is your part!
I'm sayin' it, you're doin' it. That's the way it usually works when you're working for or serving somebody. So, I've done My
part, now it's time to let Me see you do your part. It's time to get working. Now comes the obeying part. The being-doers-ofthe-Word-part, not hearers only.
It's the difference between just thinking that something is merely a good idea or something nice to do eventually, and
actually doing it.
A lot of times I'm actually having to repeat Myself, and that is a sign that it's time for you to do something about what I've
already said. It's your turn.
I've done My part, now it's time for you to do yours. I've done the speaking, now you move to action.
The emphasis now is on putting into practice what you've heard. It's time to make hay while the sun shines.
"The boat has to be in motion before the rudder can take effect," and that's what it's all about right now: getting the boat
moving.

Consider this school of life an apprenticeship where you don't only learn the theories, but also how to apply them in
practical ways! It's time to apply your hands & put some feet to the things you've learned. Life isn't only theory! It's
important you grasp the theory, but the practical part is what will get you somewhere.
You've been receiving it, now it's time to start giving it.
We've moved from receiving mode to application mode.
You've received all the initial software, now you need to get going & get your machine operating. You'll still receive more
information and occasional updates, but basically, your Operating System is installed now, and you can just work away!
We're going to have to be making some progress & move the things I've told you to the application level & put them into
action.
The things I've told you are for a purpose, they're a means to an end, not an end in itself. They're not the ultimate desired
result, but only messages to help you to get there, like sign posts. Don't get into the habit of collecting sign posts, or get
so busy creating sign posts that you fail to read what they say or fail to follow the direction in which they're supposed to
guide you.
Recognize when there is a needy situation that requires rolling up your sleeves & pitching in and show the world (or
sometimes just a single lonely person) what it really means to be a Christian!
More than anything you say or tell people, it's your actions that will reap the greatest benefits & repercussions & rewards.
What you do speaks so much louder than words. So, be a doer & find out what you can do to help others! Just look
around! Once you're through helping them, they'll often be much more willing to listen to what you have to say!
You've got to live it for them to see, first, before they're going to buy it! Give them a sample that's going to be worthwhile
imitating and following! That's what counts, more than any words you can say!
If you just coast along, thinking, "oh, well, yeah, the Lord's gonna pull me through somehow," I might do it, but there will
be consequences to pay for your lack of actively doing your part.
Do what soldiers do, prepare for battle, and not act as if life was a permanent vacation.
Sometimes it's just not enough anymore to be preaching the good stuff without ever really living and doing it yourself!
Sometimes there is a point where it's enough words, and now it's gotta be action, where they can't take anymore
preaching, they gotta see you living it, or else they're just gonna boo you out!
It's gotta be the real thing, made real by your actions!
your life is only a farce unless and until you're taking up that cross; there's just no way around it!
If you're hearing from Me but aren't doing the things I say, then what good is it?
"What matters is the things you do." Your actions are what make you what you are, not your intentions, not even your
belief or religion, if they never go any further than your head or your mouth. Your faith has got to determine your actions,
otherwise, what good is it; what is it worth? (James 2:17,26).
When I'm telling you it's no use for you to do anything except by My Spirit & Power, that doesn't mean that your part is to
do nothing. But I'm expecting you then to take the initiative to pray desperately for Me to make it happen. That's the kind of
action I want and need you to take.
When you do something good, don't immediately rest on your laurels, but let it be only the beginning. There's lots more to
go on to from there. Don't stop already when you've hardly yet begun!
All the counsel in the world will do you no good if you don't put it into practice.
All of this will merely remain in the realm of the theoretical, if you never put any of it into practice.
You're going to have to develop more initiative & get on the ball, if you're going to find and fulfill your dream and vision!
I need you to do all you can to bring in the harvest before the storm.
Look for opportunities, ways & possibilities in which you could be of help in order to further My cause.
It doesn't come natural to most to be helpful, so that's something you've got to strive for & make a conscious effort to
work toward.
Time is short, as far as those are concerned who ought to have been reached yesterday, as far as those are concerned
who are ripe & ready for the message today. There is always a certain amount of time pressure involved in the task of
getting in the harvest - ask any farmer - and the timing is crucial with some things. It takes a lot of work & action to
respond to the opportunity. My spiritual matters need to have that urgency for you, they need to become as pressing &
important to you as your own physical needs.
Learn to see those needs, recognize those opportunities & then obey instantly & go to work on them!
If you've got the obedient kind of faith with an attitude of "ready to go, ready to stay, ready my place to fill...," then I will
give you the kind of inspiration, power and gifts to spur you into action.
You have to make an effort in order to reap a harvest; you can't just expect the fruit to fall into your lap!
You've got to keep pressing in. Don't quit seeking progress, ways to improve & how you can do more than yesterday!
There are things for you to do here, and your job is to find them. Your job is to make the best out of the situation I've put
you in!

What earns you rewards with Me is pitching in with and for others, sacrificing of your own comfort in order to make it
easier for them.
Happiness does not equal finding ways around hard work! Often, the way to find happiness is by heading straight for the
pile of hard work right before you.
Happiness is not found in making things as easy as possible on yourself. Happiness is not found in avoiding the chores of
life.
Good old fashioned hard work would be the answer to many of the world's problems.
Taking for granted what you have, and wanting something different, the "grass on the other side" syndrome, prevents you
from ever putting your whole heart into the situation you're in, from applying any elbow grease to it, and instead of being
enthusiastic and on fire, you just passively wait for the day when things will change for the better, which might never
happen, because I'm waiting for you to take the initiative to change things yourself!
Take the initiative and spread some love & affection the best you can. If you wait for it to happen, it might never come;
you've got to make it happen!
Be a thermostat instead of a mere thermometer.
You've got to have the initiative to be the first to try & give love to someone else. You can't allow your love to be passive!
You've got to give it away, which is an active deed, and action you perform, not just a passive waiting for all the right
circumstances to come up!
A lot depends on you, and the initiative you come up with to get out of yourself and show love to others.
What will be depends on your initiative, your courage, your faith and your vision to determine that it's worth it to show love
to someone else. You've got to do it, you can't expect everybody else to. If you want to change the world, you've got to be
the one to start.
Use that power you've been given to make a difference. You can make the difference between what is and what could be!
Don't live to be served, but walk in My footsteps & learn to serve others!
If I'm not opening a far away, glorious door elsewhere, look around; there must be something to do right where you are!
And there is plenty to be done.
Why not invest energy and effort into this ordinary day? You'll see, the more you put into it, the more you're going to get
out of it.
"Try - just a little bit harder!" That's just about one of the basic themes in life. I can give you all the clues, show you all
the tricks & tell you all the secrets, but you've got to do the "wenting," you've got to try them out & put them into practice.
What I tell you always works. Sometimes you just got to try a little bit harder.
If something doesn't work out right away, keep trying a little harder until at last you succeed.
It's the heart that moves one to action, which then actually makes the difference. The mind alone doesn't really have
creative power. It's the heart that moves the rest of your body along to really get something going. You need inspiration,
not just mere brain-power & intellect.
If it all just remains in the realm of thought, it can so often be and remain nothing but hot air. You can think things up &
down until it hurts & you can talk about them for ages, but usually the simple people will have simply done it long before
you ever got around to stop talking about it.
It's the difference between intellect & initiative. If you had a choice between the two, I would recommend the latter. Neither
intellect nor intelligence are on the list of things needed to make a pioneer, but initiative is.
Only those who can see further than the confines of their minds can break out & dare to go where no one else dared to go,
do what no one else dared to try. Their minds simply don't know that it can't be done.
Love edifies, it builds up that which is essential. The heart. The inner knowledge, and more than knowledge; the urge and
compassion to do something about the things you know are right.
You can't just leave things to themselves and let things have their "natural" course. The natural course of things won't turn
out to bring any improvement at all, but rather decay and a deterioration of the situation, of the condition of things.
You can't just let the Enemy have the world & passively stand by as he wrecks it. You've got to do something about it!
You've got to counteract, you've got to oppose him. Otherwise, if you don't oppose him, it's almost as if you're siding with
him. You've got to oppose the Enemy in order to really be on My side. There's no such thing as not choosing sides or
passively acting as a neutral, because that act of not doing anything to even attempt to stop evil is an act of evil in itself
(James 4:17).
When things are wrong, you've got to address and face them, deal with them, you can't just ignore them, or they'll get
worse.
Wounds, as ugly as they may be, have to be attended to! Problems need to be dealt with. Evil has to be exposed.
Whenever you see a need, take care of it! Attack!
St. Francis said toward the end of his life, "We haven't done anything yet." You can always do more. There's always more
you could accomplish, some more progress to be made, some ground to be won.
You've just got to do something for those blessings. What you do is what makes the difference.

"Let your light so shine". What the world needs is a sample of the living words, being lived and enacted by you, a "Bible in
shoe leather."
Pass it on in processed form, via the life it creates in you, not the raw material of more mere words. What is really needed
is someone who takes it and puts it into action - really lives it.
The flak you're getting is the acid test of whether you're really capable of applying and putting into practice that which
you've been reading, of seeing Me where you wouldn't want to see Me, of loving even your enemies, etc. It's the proof of
the pudding, of whether it just goes in one ear and out the other, or whether it really makes a difference.
Sometimes you don't even have to say all that much; just doing it will make all the difference it takes.
Its never too late to become a doer of the Word.
I keep hoping for folks to hop on the bandwagon of the doers of My will, and sometimes its those folks you would least
expect to fulfill that hope, who come to surprise the whole world.
Its like an apprenticeship: you learn as you go and put the things you have learned in theory into practice.
You need to seek ways to make My counsel & input work for you in practical ways. You Look around for ways to implement
& apply it... to live it.
Stand by My side and help Me by doing what you can.
Seek opportunities to do good the way a blind man would desire sight! Make a whole-hearted effort. You cannot just be
passive about it. You ought to be desperate about making sure you did just what it took each day to make a difference in
someone's life.
The world isn't going to come knocking on your door to ask for the Gospel! You've got to seek, urge, beckon and charge
them to come in!
It's your job to find out what you can do in order to improve the situation, and not just assume that everything is going to
get better all by itself. You need to contribute your part in order for everything to get better and every day to get better.
You can contribute your part in making it nicer and better for someone else and be Jesus for them in some ways, to be a
manifestation of My love for them.
Ask yourself, "What can I do in order to make this day a little bit better than the day before for this person?
People can be overly optimistic at times and expect to find whole chests full of diamonds and jewels, already cut and
polished, as they go down into the mine, but that's not reality! The reality is that you go down there with your pick and
shovel, and it's cold, uncomfortable and dirty, and for every ton of dirt you move, you might find a diamond. That's the
reality of life in the mines! Everything else is a result of the elusive television mentality where everything comes easy,
without you ever having to do much of anything except press a button on your remote control.
You cannot expect things to get better all by themselves, but you're going to have to do something in order to make it
better! You'll have to work hard on becoming a better person and making a difference, and not just take the lack of love of
others as an excuse for never doing anything!
It doesn't matter what you call yourself or pretend to be, but what you do. Your actions will prove whether you're truly one
of Mine or not. You can call yourself what ever you like, you can be part of whatever church or movement you like, and
hide behind the backs of others, but when it comes down to it, what will determine whether you're really doing things
according to My way and My will or not, is your actions.
You can say whatever you want, but it won't make any difference until you do what you say.
Diligence is an important part of love.
Once you've got the spiritual side straight in your life, and there's no question about that anymore, then it's time to focus
on how you can best and most efficiently put all that spiritual input into practice.
If you have the spiritual down pat, then it's time to prove it by your works.
It's time to get stirred up, and really get some movement and action in the spirit going in order to get the desired results.
Make sure that love is the prevalent spirit in your actions.
Action is not the only thing it's all about. It's certainly very important, but what's most important is that I'm in it.
You don't have to hide behind what you're doing. You can be free to just be who you are in Me.
The essential thing is not what you do, or that you do something. But what is more important to Me is what you are, as you
do them. In what spirit are you when you do them? What do you convey as you do them? Are you acting in My love? Is My
love recognizable in what you do?
By just fulfilling your duty and hiding behind your job or position, the purpose of what you're doing it all for in the first
place is getting lost, not to be found under the rubble of accomplishment, meaningless action and going through the
motion.
As long as you're taking Me with you in the things you do it doesn't even matter so much what you do, for I'll be in it, and
I'll be with you, and I'll see you through and will help you to see it through, whatever it is...

You don't have to wait until you've got everything perfect. You learn as you go and you acquire valuable know-how as you
work with what little you've got and try to make the best out of it, and when new tools become available, you just switch to
using these...
In the meantime, keep working with what you've got.
The real art of living lies in recognizing each challenge and task set before you as your special and individual, tailor-made
destiny that only you can fulfill. Of course, that requires a good portion of faith and vision when that "glorious destiny" is a
pile of dishes, a load of laundry or taking the garbage out.
It's relatively easy to do some glorious job that's going to be noticed by a bunch of people. But those who can keep doing
those little, menial jobs with that same vision are My greatest and truest heroes.
Those "little" jobs they're doing are in reality the greatest service rendered to Me of all, because they require the greatest
portion of faith, vision and perseverance, and that's why they will also receive the greatest rewards.
"What thine hand findeth to do, do it with thy might!" (Ecc.9:10).
Many people are too much into their gear of ever doing things and accomplishing things, instead of just letting go and
letting Me... They feel that in order to be needed by others, they've got to do things that make them indispensable. Their
self-worth is determined by their actions, so they feel that if they're not capable of doing anything, then they're also not
worth much, they don't amount to anything if they can't do anything.
Some things you've got to make happen, and one of the surest ways to make them happen is to start off by praying for
them to happen. Once you've prayed for something, I can then help you to crystallize it and manifest that prayer, showing
you what you can most effectively do to put feet to your prayers.
Your actions speak louder than your opinions of yourself.
If faith without works is dead, then it doesn't really matter how much more Word you know in theory. What counts is the
extent to which you put your faith into practice, how much you are actually living your faith.
Sometimes the problem is that you already know what you should do, and you've learned the lesson in theory, but simply
aren't putting it into practice yet. You "know these things," but you're not happy yet because you don't do them yet
(Jn.13:17).
It's a matter of finally putting into practice what you know in theory.
A relative novice with a larger amount of initiative can sometimes outscore and "old professor" of My laws and Words, if
they simply live more what the others preach.
I was living and practicing all the Scribes and Pharisees had known and been studying about in theory for all those years,
having come to the conclusion that it probably couldn't be done at all, and here I came along and proved them wrong by
simply doing it.
Give people the benefit of the doubt, that even if they did something you wouldn't have done, the end result might still be
better than having done nothing at all.
Life isn't all about constantly collecting new little revelations and bits of wisdom, but about learning to apply them.
Whatever it is that costs you the most and that feels like the hardest to do, you can assume that that's precisely what the
Enemy is trying to stop you from doing!
You will have to take care of things in order for them to continue to develop in a positive, favorable and progressive way. If
you neglect them, there'll be chaos, no order, and things will fall apart.
Energy plus matter plus information makes life possible. You've got the matter, but then you've got to invest some energy
in a well-planned, organized, intelligent way, otherwise there will be no new life, just a slow decay of the old.
You can make the difference by rolling up your sleeves and pitching in and making it happen!
Its time to roll up your sleeves and pitch in with the gigantic job of winning and feeding the world that's there to reach.
Its action time, and time to gain some stature by going out there & being on the move. I'm mobilizing My forces. It's time to
show what you've got, show all you've learned, and what My training has done for you!
In order to be a pioneer, youve got to take the first step.
It always takes one man (or woman) of faith to get the stone rolling and to initiate the process.
You can either sit and wait for the right circumstances to happen, and for the harvest to come by itself, or you can make it
happen.
Im serious about what Im telling you, and Id appreciate it, if you would believe Me for it, and take My Word for it, and if
youd act on what I tell you.
Hearing from Me should also include asking Me to show you ways to implement what Ive given you!
Theres always a part that you can do, a part Im expecting you to do, in order for Me to do Mine.

Once youve learned a new lesson from Me in theory, youve got to look around for opportunities to put it into action, how
to apply it in real life
Take it from the dormant domain of your thoughts and your interior into the lucid and awake realm of your actions, the
things you actually do.
Spirit does not resemble inactivity.
The Spirit will spur you on to godly action. Overcome the inactivity and stagnation of the flesh by godly powerful action of
the Spirit!
Changing the world starts with recognizing the void and the need, the places that lack and where errors have been
committed, and then taking the initiative to do what it takes to replenish and refill them again, even if may look like a
senseless waste of time to others, because you may not be reaping immediate benefits from your work or sacrifice.
The gifts of My Spirit are for those who want to put My Word into practice, who want to put My will into action, and live it,
theyre for My Action People.
There comes a time when words will only go so far, and youre just going to have to apply the counsel youve already
received and put it into action, even if its just action through prayer.
If you want things to change for the better, the one thing not to do is to just stand by passively and watch it all go down the
drain.
Sometimes certain efforts have to be made in order to get what you want, and if everything would always fall into your lap
by itself, then I would be spoiling you. Thats not what I meant by trusting Me to supply all your needs. I never said, Dont
do anything, Ill do it all!
There is always a part that you must do in order to activate My power and put it to use for you. You must find the thing that
you must do, your calling, that which will call down My Spirit upon you and will cause you to bear fruit.
Things wont just improve by themselves if you leave them alone, but rather tend to deteriorate.
With doors, it does take a little effort of your own to push them open, to turn the doorknob, to knock or ring the bell, it isnt
entirely up to Me.
Sometimes you just have to get going and do what you know youve got to do, and then Ill show and lead and guide you
concerning the details as you go.
The thinkers arent always the doers, and perhaps some of the poor thinkers you may be tempted to look down on today
may become the doers of tomorrow, who didnt know that the things youre so scared of couldnt be done
Sometimes what I would expect from you arent any high and lofty achievements and accomplishments, but just little
humble but necessary acts.
You do the right thing simply because you know its the right thing to do, not because you feel like it.
Get more into the gear of doing things just because you know you have to; in other words, make obedience more your
incentive, instead of relying so much on inspiration, going too much by the way you feel about something and whether
youre inspired to do it.
Become more of a sample of someone who does things simply because they have to be done, and out of sheer obedience.
Dont feel bad because the feeling and the inspiration doesnt seem to be there. Just keep doing what you know you have
to, regardless. What matters is that the things get done. You may not feel My power doing it through you, but I promise it
will always be there when you need it!
I dont expect too much from you, and usually not as much as youd like to be able to expect from yourself. In fact, I even
know your weaknesses better than you do, and I can better calculate what youre actually capable of. Thats why its really
not necessary to fear that you might disappoint Me.
Love is ultimately a better force to allow to rule you and your actions than money or other selfish motivations, and learning
how to let this rule your life is going to be the main way of the future thats coming! (2015:131)
Let Me work and be active through you again, and lets see what well get accomplished! (2015:133)
When things start to get difficult, thats the time to really learn to put your trust in Me! And, well, the easy times seem to be
over, so its time to put that into action! (2015:151)
Its easier to put your faith in words than into action. So, why not try the latter for a change, even if its a challenge? Live it,
instead of just preaching it!
It would be nice to have someone in you whos practicing what hes been preaching, wouldnt it? Yeah kind of rare, but
thus: all the more precious! (2015:184)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Anger

Let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Ephesians 4:26
Let anger be far from your heart! Refrain from anger and cursing lips!
When you are tempted to get upset about a certain situation, think of Me, put on My mind, and commit the situation into My
hands ( Hebr.12:3).
Anger can really be a dangerous inroad of the Enemy.
Stay on guard and on the attack against anger and murmuring! Remember how much mercy, patience and longsuffering
Ive had toward you, and it might help you to wink at the faults of others a little more...
Anger manifested in criticism of other people's mistakes is a pretty bad habit!
It's a form of pride & self-righteousness where you become so upset about people's mistakes & lack of perfection that you
start getting angry about it. It's a lack of love & a very ugly form of pride.
Anger is just one letter away from danger.
Your anger stems from the frustration about things not being the way you think they should be. You think life is treating
you unfairly, you deserve better than that, & a lot of that anger is directed at Me and those whom I seem to prefer in your
eyes, by making things easier for them.
Instead of respecting My judgment, it leads you to defiance & rebellion against Me... you think you know better and would
have done better, if you were Me, which is exactly the kind of pride that caused Satan to fall. It's the root of all sin, and you
must recognize that it's the very spirit of Satan complaining about Me, cursing Me and wishing he would be in My stead.
The Jews rejected Moses, in spite of the great miracles I performed through him. He had his faithful few who supported
him, but the majority resisted him and provoked him to anger. But because he allowed them to provoke him, he also
missed out on the blessing of entering the Promised land together with them, so, let this be a warning to you: if you don't
want to miss the blessing, don't let them provoke you!
If you see something going on that you think is wrong, just carry it before Me, and see if it will provoke Me to anger, and I
will deal with it accordingly. But don't disappoint Me by taking matters into your own hands. There's a greater lesson to be
learned here, from Moses' anger, than meets the eye. He failed the test to let Me handle the situation... Having begun all
this great work not by his might nor his power but by My Spirit and miracle-working hand, was he going to complete it in
the flesh now, and was that going to be the bottom line: a man's wrath?
It's never your own personal affair, what concerns My kingdom! If My people are failing Me in some ways, even if you feel
it's manifested in the way they're treating you personally, never take it personal, never deal with it on your own terms, but
hand it to Me, and let Me deal with it! It's My affair. Make sure you're being a good sample, a good representative of Me, and
stand back and get out of the limelight & let Me deal with it on My terms!
It's no use, taking the rod of wrath into your own hands & to lash out words of anger, just commit it to Me!
In what ways was I tempted with anger? Sometimes I grew impatient with some people. Certainly I displayed anger toward
the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, but that wouldn't necessarily fall under the category of sinful anger, but more something
like righteous & godly indignation. I did have to deal with anger more in My younger years.
One sin that's related to anger, - and anger can sometimes be a manifestation of it - is self-righteousness. Sometimes we
see someone we look up to behave in a certain way, and we think we have an equal right to act the same way. I was
sometimes tempted with thoughts of judgment in a premature way, before I was really "ready" to be a Judge, so to speak,
which is a very common & natural thing to happen during many people's youth. Usually, what helps one to get over this, is
to experience other people's anger, to witness how ugly it can be, and how it hurts to be at the receiving end of it. Having
seen other people display their anger from a child's viewpoint and the viewpoint of a weak human being helped Me to be
more merciful, and to be more "slow to anger," so to speak, more longsuffering.
Satan exposed right there, because he makes you think you're a "prisoner," a captive of those mistakes & flaws of others,
that you're going to have to deal with & be subjected to for the rest of your life. But I'm saying, "Not really!" Because by
simply making the choice that you're not going to let it affect you or bother or aggravate you, but instead choosing to look
at and praise Me for their positive qualities, you deny those negative qualities to have power over you whatsoever, and it's
almost as if they wouldn't exist!
You can refuse to get aggravated. You can choose to continue to be loving instead, choose to look at the good sides,
choose not to be bothered!
Choose not to be bothered by their flaws, their idiosyncrasies their quirks! Refuse to look at them! Or, if you see them, use
that as something you pray for, and address personally with them, if I lead you to do so, but don't focus on it, and don't let
it bother you! Don't let the faults stand between you and them! Choose not to allow them to!

11

choose not to be aggravated by the driving style of others! Choose not to be bothered by the way some people seem to act
extra friendly only in order to get something out of you! Choose to ignore their tendencies to be more conservative than
you in certain aspects, or to be different than you in whatever aspects! Choose to accept and love them the way they are
and not to be annoyed by it!
Please don't become angry, impatient or upset with Me or your circumstances, or yourself. Learn to gratefully embrace life
as it comes. If there is a difficulty, don't despair over it, don't get mad or angry about it, but face it and embrace & learn to
handle it with humility.
The silent, peaceful garb of humility is the one that it behooves you to wear, when you're faced with a difficult situation, a
trial or challenge, not to become upset and start ranting and raving.
Show that you believe and trust Me for what I've made you.
So, next time you get tempted to get upset about something, pull the break! Stop everything and take time to embrace that
situation, to love the situation, the gift of My new eternal life I have given you.
Choose the path of life each day, and run away from all things that would promote the flesh, the way of death, that is not
love and life and spirit.
Instead of having aggressive and hostile thoughts on your mind, you'll seek peace with all men, especially your brethren,
those who call on Me out of a pure heart.
It's peace vs. the aggressive ways of the world. So, when the Enemy tempts you with aggressive thoughts, you won't fall
for it.
You can tell how the Enemy - through his agents promoting hatred and strife between parties - tries to sow division
between you. Learning the ability to ignore his attempts and not to fall into the trap of aggression and opposition is one of
the clues in life it pays to master.
It's another case of looking beyond the four fingers of what's immediately before you: you cannot look at the provocation,
you must look at the lesson behind it. Will you fall for that provocation right in front of your nose, or will you be wise and
look beyond, at the lesson and the purpose in it?
If you see it as a lesson and a test, it's much easier not to fall for it. Sometimes the gist of the lesson lies in ignoring
situations that would provoke you to become aggressive. You know who is the author of aggression, so, instead of feeling
like you've got a right to become aggressive, realize that you'd be a fool to fall into Satan's trap, if you allow him to use a
certain situation to provoke you.
A deep anger, a righteous rageis soon going to sweep the world and cause a mighty widening of the eyes.
I will yet pull out the pillows from under the arms of those who sit at ease in Zion.
I cause the wrath of man to praise Me. The wrath of those who see the injustices of the lukewarm will cause men to praise
Me, because it will serve to wake up many from their stupor and the Devil's trance.
Nothing else than love will enable you to do things for Me that will make a difference.
There wont be any need to be angry with anyone anymore, because youll know all is forgiven, all things will be well, and
youll have that perfect trust in Me that perfect love brings.
Once you know I can do it; that I am well able and willing to help you succeed, then all those lying vanities, your anger and
frustrations, will melt away.
Anger is a tough one to crack because it requires a change of attitude. You cant take the circumstances and what life is
handing you, gracefully. You are convinced it ought to be different. You cant let it be.
The right attitude to conquer anger would be: Let it be! Let it be the way I know its got to be, even if you may be inclined
to disagree with Me! Just give Me that priority over your own wisdom; give Me that benefit of the doubt that I actually do
know what Im doing.
Remember whos the author behind getting annoyed and aggravated. Its not Me.
This is one way the Enemy works in fathers lives: he gets them annoyed at some of the traits of their children and thus
creates deep gaps between them, some of which have never been bridged during their life-times.
Becoming annoyed by their childrens traits and less than perfect qualities is something fathers have been prone to. They
raise their standards of expectations from their kids so high, that they cant hide their disappointment when the children
fail to live up to them.
This may not happen consciously, but you do notice that when your child acts a certain way that annoys you, that you
must have been hoping or expecting them to turn out differently.
As usual, you have the choice to either murmur and complain about your fate, or praise and thank Me for having done and
allowed what I knew would be best for your general outcome and eternal happiness.
If your child has some qualities or habits that seem to be extremely difficult for you to handle, let life rub them in so that
you can really learn whatever it is I am trying to teach you through them.
Maybe thats precisely why parents get annoyed by their childrens undesirable traits: theyre a reflection of their own, and
their pride usually makes it pretty hard for them to deal with that.
The spirit of Antichrist is raging to extinguish Christianity from the face of the earth altogether.
By voicing their anger and rage against My servants they wind up fighting against Me in the process and sticking their
finger in My eye.

12

The enemys the one you should direct your anger against, and whom you should fight accordingly.
The devils intention is to get your eyes off Me and make you become bitter or angry toward folks, and occupy your mind
with the injustices in this world.
Try to remember to stay a little more faithful and loyal to Me next time youre tempted to give Me the blame for some
unpleasant circumstance or when you get angry or upset
Perhaps youll manage not to blame or judge Me, but to just take it graciously. Yes, it may be a test, and I may have allowed
it. But just because its a test and I allow it, why not try to pass it, instead of flunking it by acting exactly in the way you
shouldnt?
Anger isn't going to help. It's not going to improve anything; only make matters worse. You're only doing yourself harm
with your anger, and joining everyone else in making things worse, instead of better.
Angry impatience has been one of the biggest threats to maintaining the peace within relationships
You need to learn that it is not I who am your enemy, and thus funnel your anger against the appropriate sources of your
anguish, if at all. Of course, the best would be if you would just learn how to bear all these things that get you enraged a
little more in stride.
Youll know that the Guy in charge knew what He was doing all along, after all, and there wasnt half a reason to get so
upset and uptight about it all wondering where this would lead. (2011:19)
Lifes a pain sometimes, maybe even much of the time, but I promise that if you take it with a grain of salt and a healthy
portion of humor, itll be a lot less bitter.
Yes, theres a lot to get upset about, if you take it seriously. But youve got the choice whether youre going to get upset
about it or laugh about it. Which do you think I consider the better option? (2011:116)
The experiences when you have to temporarily make do without something youre usually dependent on, teach you not to
take it for granted. You naturally get upset when you dont have them or they dont work anymore as they should, but did
you really appreciate and thank Me for them in the first place?
Youre vociferous about your displeasure with your loss, but how about your praise when you still had them? (2011:146)
Instead of getting mad at the Father and Me, why not get mad at the enemy, and do all you can to get him and his
influences out of your mind and your life, kick him out at last, and give Us the full and only authority over your heart and
mind and entire being? (2015:185)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Attitudes & Mindsets

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7


Attitude is everything in salesmanship.
The attitude of demanding part of your reward already on Earth is like the prodigal son asking for his inheritance to go off
& squander it. Its reigning a little now & foregoing certain privileges later.
For centuries & thousands of years people have known that you have to sow, in order to reap. Only in these times, children
demand everything in return for nothing. Adults likewise have adopted this attitude of, I deserve this, so Im going to take
it, only to find out that someone is going to have to pay the fiddler in the end.
Give thanks in every situation you find yourself in & youll see its up to you & your attitude what will become of it.
Even the worst situations can turn into good and lead to a better one, if youve simply got the right attitude, one of trust &
of thankfulness for whatever I bring.
Youve got to get rid of some of your excess weight & baggage, inappropriate habits & attitudes that dont come in handy
when fighting a war.
Gratitudes an attitude you cant do without as friends! Show your appreciation by returning kind deeds of love.
You have really only just begun to learn, and the best attitude to have is to know that you know nothing.
Thats the Devils religion: You dont have to thank anyone, because everything youve got, youve only got because you
worked for it yourself! If youve got that kind of an attitude, youre actually spiritually dead.
Its that passive, fatalistic attitude, which makes people go around in circles without ever getting anywhere, ever learning
but never coming to knowledge, as one that beateth the air.
You just need to take on a winners attitude!
It hurts Me when My saved children still wander through life with an attitude of but I still havent found what Im looking
for....
Its the attitude of the heart that makes the difference.
Im going to give & keep going forward, even if Im the only one; even if no one else does. Hes loved me so much, how
can I give Him back any less than all I can? THATS the attitude that makes more than conquerors & turns losers into
winners.
Reason is the hoarding, stingy, selfish & self-preserving, so-called realistic attitude. Generosity is an open heart that pours
forth; it can do no other.
Keep an attitude of trust.
Peace & happiness speak louder than any words. A calm & silent loving conviction & attitude of faith, a sample of living
what you preach, will win the hearts of those who are willing to give Me a chance.
Your happiness in this life depends on your obedience, your attitude & gratitude toward Me. As long as you keep thinking,
"God, I would have done better than that if I were You", that's not really an attitude of trust & gratefulness that engenders
My joy. My joy comes from truly accepting that I love you, care for you and I'm giving you what's best for you, not doubting
all of these.
Anybody can murmur & go through life with a "Why me?" attitude & expect more out of life than they're willing to invest.
But the overcomers - and that's what I have called & chosen you to become - see with the eyes of faith. They see the good
even in the bad. They don't feel sorry for themselves, but they look outward at others & their needs & are driven by
compassion for them.
Have a loving, merciful attitude.
My attitude has always been, "to hell with the proper way!"

14

The ways & attitudes of man, always reject the ways & attitudes of God.
It's as if every morning when you wake up, the Devil has woven a new web around you, consisting of habits, selfish
attitudes & chains of conformity, and you must decide whether you're going to live with them or not.
It's got to be your view, your focus, your attitude that's going to have to change. Changing the world starts with you.
A selfish & independent road of pride & self-efficiency, which makes you go through life with an attitude of "I don't need
anybody else", the result of which is usually that you'll find out that while others would have needed you badly, they won't
need anybody with that attitude, either.
A passive attitude of "Why don't they like me or love me?" results in resentment, isolation, or simply indifference... "Well,
they don't like me, so why should I care about them?" And as part of your self-defense mechanism you start looking at
their flaws & all the things that are wrong with them, and instead of seeing them like victims you could be helping, as
people in the same boat with needs & weaknesses just like your own, you categorize them & exclude them from your life.
It's not an attitude of complacency I want My children to have, but one of alertness & desperation.
You've got to show by your attitude that you're real, not just another fake & phony with half-hearted or selfish motives.
Pray desperately each day for Me to show you what is the right attitude to have.
Don't be fooled or influenced by the skeptical, doubtful, incredulous mindset of the blinded masses.
Wrong attitudes, aggressions, bitterness & pride affect your freedom more than any person ever can.
Take on an "I can" attitude! Believe that you can! Because it's true!
Have more of a "Jesus" attitude, the attitude of a shepherd that would give his life for the sheep.
You've got to have a winning attitude with everyone: with your kids, with your brethren, and with strangers!
You can have heaven in your heart right where you are, right now, if you only have the right attitude.
A mature attitude is that of one who has learned that all things come from Me in the first place, & so they give all the glory,
honor & credit for it right back to Me, for "what hast thou that thou didst not receive?"
Whenever discontentment attacks, you must realize that something is wrong, not with your situation, but with your own
attitude & spirit, and you must ask Me to show you where the Enemy found a way in.
When somebody is going through serious trials, nothing will help them as much as your taking on a serious & sober
attitude, showing solidarity, genuine concern & that you're fighting alongside them in spirit!
You don't overcome a bad spirit with a light attitude, but by sobering up, facing him down, confronting him, and showing
that the victim is not alone in their fight, but that you're right by their side, fighting with them and for them.
Search your heart for hidden motivations, wrong attitudes, which could lead you up the wrong path!
If you have the right attitude & the right amount of love for people, the right incentive, then nothing is impossible.
Pass on to your children a helpful attitude. But you've got to live it for them to see, first, before they're going to buy it!
Loving people in spite of their flaws is an ability I appreciate & will reward much more than any attitude of wanting to know
how much smarter you are than everybody else, including Me & My prophets! It's an attitude thing! You can choose yours.
In order to really get ready for Me, what you need is a desperate, not a complacent attitude!
To maintain a positive attitude & outlook towards people that tend to strike you negatively or give you battles & trials is a
very important thing, because so much is determined by the way you see others: your ability to successfully live & work
with them, which will affect your fruitfulness for Me, your unity, your general happiness & outlook on life, as well as theirs,
& it will affect their decisions & desire to continue to serve & follow Me or not.
So, it's important to maintain a positive attitude, an attitude & spirit of forgiveness & of love that casts a veil over a
multitude of sins & shortcomings.
Your attitude is so important...whether you're understanding of their battles & trials, whether you're truly compassionate.
Find those who don't have an attitude of, "I'm not searching anymore; I've already got it!"
Help people not to give up on themselves. When they fall, that's when they specially need you to be there with an attitude
of, "I still believe in you!"
Treat people like potential winners, not losers. Show appreciation, not a critical or self-righteous attitude.

15

If your faith and life-style, your attitude and everything about you is the real thing, then even the eventual crisis, of which
all the others were only shadows, will only be another part of your life of faith, My plan for you, My Big Picture &
everything.
The problem is with the hearts of the people, what's within, it's their attitudes, & that's something hard to get rid of or to
deal with. Something has to happen from the inside.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. If you fail or refuse to accept your title & spiritual rank of one of My ambassadors
& instead just wear the title "nobody," then that's what you'll be. But if you're conscious of the fact that I sent you, and
wherever you go, you represent Me, you'll be a lot more prayerful about what you'll say.
There are so many details & factors & lessons you miss out on if you just rush through life in a "let me have it all,"
consumer-type of attitude.
It's the choice between going through life with a "gimme, gimme" attitude of consumerism, seeking to enjoy all you can, to
get all the input you can, and laying down your life for others.
It's pretty hard to get the gospel across to the desperate from a stuffed, self-satisfied attitude, especially when much of the
desperation in the world is being caused by that very self-satisfied, greedy & gluttonous attitude of the leading nations of
the world...
The worst you can do is think you've already got it all; that would be the exact opposite of the attitude I want you to have. I
want you to know that you've got nothing and that you need it all, and I want you to behave accordingly.
What you need is a change of attitude, not a change of circumstances. Once your own heart, attitude & view is changed,
you're going to be a lot more effective in helping to change other hearts, attitudes & points of view.
Just as you would find it wonderful if your child would come to you & ask, "Is there anything I can do to help you today?"
& just as much as you would love it if she would develop a more helpful attitude, so, I would be thrilled if I could get you to
develop an attitude that would cause you to look for opportunities, ways & possibilities in which you could be of help in
order to further My cause.
In the world, but not of the world, that's what I need you to be. It's hard to fight against all those worldly influences.
Getting Egypt out of Moses was precisely what took so long: the worldly attitudes toward things, & their viewpoints...
Often I choose to bring it about happiness in your life not so much by gaining and accumulating, but by losing that which
was unnecessary, the excess weight of false perceptions, wrong attitudes, and"the sin, which doeth so easily beset..."
(Heb.12:1).
You may be living with the most perfect people in the world, but with the wrong attitude in your own heart, you still won't
be happy.
Problems are more often than not being caused not by your circumstances, but your own attitudes, your "system
settings." Your attitude affects the way you are going to function, just as the settings of your computer will affect its
usability & effectiveness.
It's a matter of attitude & mindset. You just need to set your mind to do these things, to observe them, & to keep them up.
They've got to become rules in your life that you keep, & that are stronger than circumstances, you won't bend them.
You need to keep an advancing attitude. You've got to seize those opportunities, seize the day, and not just let it pass you
by.
Only with a victorious attitude will you also emerge from any given situation, challenge or fight as victor.
Be so filled with My Spirit, so full of Me, that there's no room for any darkness, any lack or absence of light, such as in the
form of doubts, skepticism or disbelief, be it your own or that of the people whose opinion you might be concerned about.
It takes a mindset of refusing to allow such things to hit you; just determine to ignore them as empty winds and empty lies
of the Devil, empty shadows, that appear as darkness and blackness, but disappear when faced with My light.
The only power the Devil holds is over the mind, but once you refuse to even recognize that power and go forth in the faith
that I am well able to overcome all that, the battle is yours.
I can alter not only your way of seeing the circumstances, but also your capability of handling them and dealing with them,
which will make any mountain look smaller and more inviting and less gloomy than before you asked Me to change things
with My power. More often than not it will be My altering you, your heart, your attitude and perception of things, that will
really make the difference. So, that's where you've got to let Me work, for that's where I have chosen to live: right in your
own heart! Let your heart be My home, and I'll be the greatest changing-factor of circumstances you'll have ever known.

16

What's your attitude: gratitude or resentment? That's what it all boils down to, your constant choice. Will you resent the
trial, the empty half of your cup, or show gratitude for the full half? Life is never all good nor all bad. You might say there
are always good things and bad things present in it; it all just depends which are the ones you choose to look at or
emphasize on.
If you focus on the bad, then that's what will determine the major connotation of your view, your attitude, your day, your
life. But if you focus on the good (and if you have Me, you always have something Good to focus on), then that will
determine your outlook.
Often the truly needed changes are changes in your own mindsets, attitudes and perception of things, inward changes,
changes within yourself, rather than the other party.
You can change your attitude, your way of seeing things, you can let Me change your heart, and much of your world will
already be changed.
The greatest victors are those who refuse to believe the circumstances that indicate or announce defeat! They keep
fighting anyway, they keep believing anyway, that they're going to win. That's the kind of attitude that refuses to give in
even to the most un-promising circumstances.
Your attitude shows where you're "at," whether you got the point, and at which level of progress you are, your level of
maturity and vintage and quality of character. Is yours a selfish, introverted attitude, or a giving, mature and loving one?
The ones whose behavior and attitudes you care about are your own children. Likewise, I care about you. What interests
Me is your attitude.
Everything depends on you! As far as your life is concerned, whatever you want to make happen in it, depends on you,
your initiative, your incentive, your vision, your guts, your faith! - Your determination not to allow yourself to get
sidetracked or discouraged! Your "yes-power."
Sometimes you've got to let Me make things work together for good by putting forth some trust in Me first. If you approach
the situation with a negative attitude, then you might be undermining the grounds for Me to bring about My good purpose.
You cannot work against Me while I'm trying to bring about that good in your life.
You must give Me your cooperation by putting forth a positive attitude of trust that I'm going to do it somehow, even if right
now you can't see it.
While less than unconditional love may not be true love, an attitude of unwillingness to change, or of being too lazy to
even give it a try, isnt exactly the epitome of true love, either.
A zero change and zero progress attitude is an attitude that leads to stagnation and death. It suffocates a relationship.
All depends on your attitude, whether you choose to take on the position of a servant voluntarily, or you prefer to invest
your life in a being-served type of position, one in which youre the one whos being catered to, in which you pursue your
own interests, etc.
Some situations dont have a way out. Look at those who have to endure a permanent handicap that they have to live with
for the rest of their lives. What counts is your attitude and what you make out of the circumstances and conditions youve
been given, and how you handle them.
Everybody makes mistakes, and nobodys perfect; nobody has ever lived a perfect life of which they can say, I never
made any mistakes. Its erroneous to have that kind of an attitude. And, well, some folks just have the kind of attitude
which is their besetting sin and handicap to carry around through life that they simply cant see their own faults as easily
as they see the faults of others.
You know My Cause is worth living and dying for, and so, youre simply willing to give all, even unto death thats the kind
of attitude that makes disciples.
All that is really needed is a spiritual solution; changes of heart, that will alter the circumstances and conditions right
where they count, and change lives from within.
Theres no use shifting you to a more favorable position. First weve got to cleanse you from rotten and spoiled attitudes,
and a little bit of hardship might be just what you need.
The attitude The Lord will always do it for me, no matter what can sometimes be somewhat snobbish and even wrong, if
it causes you to be indifferent to the way you come across at people, and when it causes you to think you can just let it all
hang out, and if they dont like it, tough luck.
Its a proud and somewhat arrogant attitude to have, that there is nothing and no area at all in which you could be making
changes and progress
With a half-hearted attitude, its going to take longer to get the job done!
I cant let you off the hook before you get the job done.
In My school, there is no graduating with bad grades!

17

Lets get it over with! is certainly not an attitude or mindset conducive to good work and a job done well and efficiently.
Its definitely not an attitude thats going to warrant a Well done thou good and faithful servant
There isnt any mention in My Book of anybody just having done a mediocre job for Me.
I need you to change your mindset and prepare and brace yourself for the long haul, because Im going to have to prolong
this class, this lesson, for as long as it takes for you to get it. I cant let you graduate without really actually having made it
and passed the test.
If youre going to hang in there, I need you to do it with a whole-hearted attitude.
The wrong attitude to have is, If things arent the way I think they should be, why should I make any effort to change
them? Well, thats perhaps precisely why they are the way they are, so that you make an effort to evoke some kind of
difference. Maybe youre there to make that difference. Maybe thats why youre seeing the way things ought to be, so that
you can help and do what you can in order for them to become that way.
Its up to you to get out and help push in order for that bus to make some uphill progress, and not just do your own thing
and shake your head about the catastrophe that you see unfold as the bus threatens to slide backwards into the valley!
Being open to change, wanting and desiring change and actively looking for it and for ways to change is precisely the
attitude thats needed: What can I do in order to make more progress, what should I change? etc.
In order to win spiritual battles, youre going to have to stir yourself up, and not allow yourself to settle down in a
comfortable rut, but steer away from seeking that kind of comfort.
Your attitude should always be that of a humble seeker for more, never thinking you have arrived, regardless of how much
I pour out to you.
Be open to look in new and different directions and ways of making progress and learning from Me.
Sometimes its the little truths, the little right attitudes and the proper position of the heart that make life on a local and
practical level a lot more livable.
Once youre in the right spirit and attitude, I will also bring situations in your life where I can use you, and I will bring the
necessary inspiration and energy to work on certain projects, and show you which ones are the most needed
Sometimes your attitude seems to be that darkness is just one other mood or shade in intervals with the light. You
dont view it as the opposite of light that it is, nor as the enemy that it is, but you take it in this sort of passive attitude, as if
saying, Well, I guess thats just the way it is, and you get bitter, cynical and sarcastic over My having allowed that
unpleasant scenario to happen, when its not really I Who allowed it, but you did! You allow it to happen by refusing to
fight for the light, refusing to make an effort to stay in the light and on My wavelength.
You dont have to let the darkness in. You can make a choice to fight and refuse to let it in and focus on the light instead,
and decide that youre going to cling to a positive attitude instead!
Criticizing Me for what Ive given you, murmuring in your heart about it, and failing to appreciate it, wont get you the
perfect world youd like to be living in. Thats just the same attitude people have who look at the flaws in the world and say,
Well, a perfect God would have certainly come up with something better than this less-than-perfect world. What they
dont know is that it was perfect to begin with, but it has deteriorated due to mans own choices.
If you have a believing attitude of Yes, Lord; I believe that youre going to do it, its going to be more helpful in bringing
about My plans, of course, than a doubting attitude
An attitude of gratitude can change so many things, even if its just an interior change, but it sure affects the way you see
things.
If you thank Me for your situation and circumstances instead of complaining about them, youre bound to improve things. Whereas complaining has never really helped much under any circumstances.
Its true that some of the circumstances and conditions I allow to crop up in your life could be deemed questionable. But
perhaps Im testing you to see how youre going to take them, and whether youre going to have a positive and praiseful
attitude about them or youre going to get into a negative drift and start complaining and murmuring in your heart about
them.
When youre not quite sure about it, you tend to stay neutral about it and have a lets wait and see whats to become of
this attitude. But it would be more helpful if youd adopt a definitely positive and praiseful attitude from scratch, showing
that you believe that I know what Im doing.
A lot depends on your attitude, your faith and your whole concept and perception of life, your input, and on whether you
have a positive or negative outlook on things; all factors that determine whether the life you live is more like Heaven or
hell.
You can walk through life with a positive attitude of trust that Someone knew what they were doing when they instituted
this game of life, including its process of aging, sicknesses and other ailments, or you go through life murmuring and
complaining about the kind of disaster that life presents for you
And according to your attitude the quality of your life will be.
The true source of happiness is and has always been knowing Me, and your attitude toward Me is what will determine
whether youre going to be truly happy or not.

18

Part of your condition is due to mindsets and attitudes evoked by your points of view and probably a good portion of the
Enemys lies, resulting in self-pity, depression and frustration and that feeling of helplessness, when actually you ought to
know that youre anything but helpless if Im by your side.
Contrary to your notion its not so much the circumstances that require improvement and a positive change as your own
attitudes and heart- and mind-sets.
During a crisis, time spent with Me is definitely time wisely invested, and more so than other things you spend and
sometimes waste your time on In fact, theres hardly anything better you can do.
How great is your faith, really, that I am the One capable of pulling you out of it?
Its the result of your own personal choices, attitudes and actions that is catching up with you, bearing the consequences.
Im waiting for you to find out things and attitudes you will have to change before youll be ready to enjoy a new blessing
in your life.
You prefer whatever is the easiest and most fun-promising option, and dont always go by what would be the most needed.
Now, thats not very responsible, is it? You cant really expect to make any significant headway with that attitude and
modus operandi.
Keep an attitude that grants Me the right of ways in cases where our interests might be at conflict.
Make an effort to acquire an attitude of trust.
A positive attitude, believing and trusting that I will only allow that to happen to you which is for your very best, will help
you enjoy life better, and will up the chances that the good things are going to come to pass, since according to your faith
it will be done unto you.
I want you to walk in an attitude of trust in Me, confident in My Promise that I'm with you and will be there for you. You can
count on Me.
While some circumstances may be unchangeable, from another and greater aspect, there is a lot you can do about your
fate, and if nothing else, your attitude about it. In other words, it is in your power and every humans to change things
to a certain degree, even if it is just their own way of seeing things.
If you just keep carelessly floating along in an attitude of everythings going to be alright, no matter what, its bound to
be less than favorable for your spirit. You become spoiled and pampered by life, instead of stirred up, active, and on guard.
(2011:4)

Im teaching you to see the good in the apparently bad, to see the advantage in the seeming disadvantage, and once you
learn how to do that, you learn how to live fully in the here and now, and how to be happy regardless of circumstances,
knowing that Im always in full control.
That doesnt mean youre supposed to become all fatalistic and passive about things, with an attitude that you cant
change anything anyway because its all predestined. Im not talking about your choices, on which hinge a lot of things,
but your circumstances and situations you find yourself in, and your choice how youll take them. (2011:25)
Things could always be worse, and at the rate the world is going, chances are they will, so it pays not to have a pampered,
whiny attitude, but to brace yourself for whats to come. (2011:38)
A helpful factor is to have an open heart and attitude toward the things and folks you meet along your way, and not reject
everything and everyone from scratch, murmuring about it all and saying, I dont like it! (2011:47)
Its pride that causes anyone to say and assume, "I don't need any help. I'm doing fine on my own." The thing about pride
is, it is always only temporal, just like any of the other evils you're dealing with. They may be extremely stubborn and hard
to overcome, but in the end they will cease and be replaced by the proper attitudes to make learning possible. (2011:48)
Moaners, groaners and complainers make it tougher and harder on themselves than need be by their own attitude.

(2011:53)

Im trying to teach you that its all a matter of attitude and an inner state of mind thats really going to make a difference
and determines whether what you live will be heaven on earth or hell (2011:55)
It takes a conscious effort to decide to put on a positive, grateful mindset & attitude; otherwise I wouldn't have to remind
you of this so many times... (2011:66)
Youll definitely be more successful with people if you show forth a humble attitude, instead of a condescending one.
(2011:68)

Everyone is closest to himself a German proverb says, and that attitude reflects whats going on: its natural for you to
put your trust in yourself first and most of all, and likewise so it is for them.
The right attitude to have would be that you can use all the help you can get, especially Mine. (2011:69)

19

Just as youve been learning that happiness finds you when you do what you can to bring it to others, so an extraverted
attitude and outlook are also helpful in aiding you to find your destiny and potential. A positive attitude that is concerned
primarily with the welfare of others, even above your own, will put you in the right position to spot opportunities to shine
your light for Me as they come up. (2011:71)
The attitude of some of the folks around you that you see, of, It cant be done, therefore Im not even going to try it is
exemplary for many peoples attitudes toward even attempting to get ahold of Me, communicate with Me or let alone
hearing from Me. (2011:73)
The things you learn can and will affect your attitudes, and thus change your life.

(2011:74)

Your attitude is reflected in what you say. (2011:77)


Gratitude is a healthy attitude to have that can do a lot of good in your life.

(2011:80)

When you can go into an endeavor with an attitude of I will win and gain something from it, even if I lose and by lose
I mean, lose it all then youve probably got the right attitude and can see it as a win/win situation from which you cannot
possibly emerge as a loser. (2011:83)
if you want to honor Me, please Me and make Me happy, do Me the favor, and show forth some trust in Me.
And of course, the best way to do that is by showing forth a grateful attitude. (2011:88)
You may have the attitude that you dont want to preach anything that you are not able to live yourself, but if you wait until
youre perfect, youre never going to spread My message to anyone in this life. (2011:91)
The input you receive from Me is more of a spiritual nature, because I want your approach and attitude to become a more
spiritual one.
True and lasting happiness doesnt just come from altering your situation. Its a matter of attitude and a matter of the heart,
and the necessary changes are more likely to be brought about by hard times than the easy ones. (2011:92)
Becoming aware of a need is the first step toward improvement. The best thing that can happen is your realization of the
need, which will help and cause you to focus on potential solutions, changes of behavior and attitude; things you must do
or could do in order to improve the situation, since theres not much sense in pinning all the blame on someone else
(2011:93)

If you just stop worrying long enough about whether youre in the right place or not, or if or where theres a place you
possibly might be happier, maybe Ill just be able to finish My work in your life and bring about those inner changes that
are really going to guarantee happiness, because its the right attitudes that will get you there, and its not so much
dependent on the place where you are. (2011:102)
Learn to live and deal with the difficulties and challenges! Theres really not much use in complaining and bellyaching. In
fact, it would be a lot healthier attitude and more conducive to success and classroom achievement to take the challenges
more positively! (2011:109)
Do you begin every day with a blank sheet of paper as your program, and an attitude that says, Thy will be done? Do you
even so much as consider what My will might be for you on any given day? (2011:114)
As long as you walk through life whining, moaning and complaining, and constantly seeking something better for yourself,
murmuring in your heart about your lot and thinking you deserve better, its just not the right attitude that I can bless with
greater things. (2011:120)
It starts to become dangerous when people see themselves or their own opinions and attitudes as the center of it all,
causing imbalance and chaos, which unfortunately describes the general state of the world right now (2011:124)
Its easy to take on a victims role and an attitude of self-pity, but others have their hardships and challenges in life, too,
and its important to stay mindful of that. (2011:128)
Youre reaping the consequences of your actions and choices; youre reaping what youve sown, and things are coming
back to you the way you initially prompted them to by your own actions, decisions, choices and attitudes. According to
your faith has it been done unto you, and that has both good and bad sides.
Self-pity and whining over your plight, complaining and huffing and puffing about it couldnt really be described as a
victorious attitude of faith. People with much worse plights had much more positive and victorious attitudes about them,
and they made the best out of what they had. (2011:130)
It has been the natural modus operandi for people to walk through life with a give me attitude, and What can I get,
instead of, What can I give?

20

Theres a lot more in it for you in the long run if you take on a giving attitude, and one of inner peace and contentment and
trust.
Take on the attitude that its part of what youre here to learn: to be more giving and become more sacrificial!
Its really all a matter of attitude. (2011:146)
Its the Enemy who likes to sow those seeds of pride and looking down on people. What youre looking for, really, is a
humbler attitude. (2011:147)
Dont make the mistake of thinking youre ready for greater things when I may know better that youre not, but keep a
humble attitude of a learner, rather than that of an overly qualified teacher doomed to cast his pearls before swine. (2011:148)
The appropriate attitude to have is the same I took on: compassion. Try a little compassion on people, less judgmentalism!
(2012:10)

Gods attitude toward men is one of love and forgiveness, not of harsh condemnation and judgment, and that is something
very important to convey and communicate to people, so I cannot emphasize the importance of showing mercy on them
enough. (2012:11)
Theres a significant difference between going through life with a know-it-all attitude, and an open attitude of What do we
really know at all? - hungry to learn. (2012:14)
Your fate rests to a large extent in your hands, which is why complaining is really of no avail.
It basically all depends on your attitude and on how you choose to confront and face your daily challenges.
Your attitude will also determine the outcome and whether youll survive the ordeal. Youve got to decide, Am I going to
overcome and conquer this situation, or will I allow the circumstances to overwhelm and conquer me?
The content of the message youll give through your words will be far less relevant than the attitude to see in you, the faith
and determination to keep believing and trusting no matter what happens. What else could be more worthwhile passing on
and conveying to people?
So, does a lot depend on you and your attitude, your choice how you will face and deal with every new day and challenge
up ahead? (2012:19)
When you place your faith in the right factors it becomes evident in a positive, praiseful attitude and spirit, regardless of
any physical factors or circumstances. (2012:22)
Picture yourself as a teacher in front of a class full of students who think they already know everything youre going to
teach them, and youll catch the drift why I appreciate that other, empty and hungry call it ignorant attitude, a lot more.
(2012:25)

You demonstrate the same attitude you criticize in others: you want it to be easier, while at the same time expecting the
highest possible rewards and gratification for the least possible effort - Can you see how thats a contradiction? (2012:28)
Weve got a huge job to do, and getting you more work-focused in your life is part of My plan to get you to employ and
apply yourself more and get away from your vacation-oriented attitude. (2012:33)
If you put forth a positive and believing attitude, you will often see that thats precisely the effect it will have on your
circumstances.
A false sense of superiority isnt helpful at all, and you can imagine that thats the reason why the Enemy is attempting to
nurse that sort of attitude. (2012:35)
Its much more appropriate for you to take on a humble learners attitude than that of a judgmental Mr. Know-It-All. (2012:44)
How willing are you to face and learn from your mistakes? How prone are you to take them as an excuse to give up or to
take on an attitude of resignation? And if you are, will you wake up and recognize that tendency as the enemy? (2012:45)
Isnt the spiritual attitude so much more important? (2012:48)
The human mind is geared to the attitude, I can do this, which is good in some ways, and better than an I cant do it
attitude. But the best attitude of all for a believer to have is, I can do all things through Christ (Phil.4:13). (2012:50)
Taking the responsibility for your mistakes yourself, along with the acceptance of your circumstances (unless Ive
definitely put it in your heart to do something to change them) with the conclusion that you probably dont deserve any
better is the kind of attitude that could potentially make this world a better place. (2012:62)
Take on a victorious attitude!
Take on a bit more of a merciful attitude, instead of one of breathing condemnation! (2012:69)
What do we really know at all? is a good, humble and realistic attitude to have.

21

(2012:71)

The kind of attitude you need to have in order to laugh life and all its many challenges right in the face and let it know that
youre not a quitter, that you wont surrender to its pressures, is one that says, No matter what! Ill keep on fighting,
believing, showing forth a cheerful spirit, etc., no matter what!
Theres no glory in the attitude of I give up. (2012:76)
I would always prefer and recommend for your own benefit an attitude of faith rather than one of doubt. (2012:81)
Its the attitude that makes the difference. If you have nothing but complaints in your heart about the situation youre in,
and you come to Me in an accusatory manner, blaming Me for this and for that, its usually harder for Me to get through to
you to get you to see My point of view, which is usually the positive side of things you often fail to see. (2012:89)
Theres a big change necessary in your attitude and showing forth your character, in order for you to make it up My road,
and not the downhill slope the enemy would like to lead you!
I know its a big change, and youre hoping you can make it, but so do I, and remember that We can help you make it, if
your attitude and willingness, as well as your yieldedness are turned in the right direction! (2015:112)
Those who cannot boast of any kinds of productions, for that just have a lot humbler attitude and quite a few more friends
and folks regularly communicating with them. (2015:113)
Theres a lot more to learn than when you still had the attitude that you had pretty much figured everything out, isnt it so?
(2015:116)

Sometimes its your task to accept what life is handing you as positively and victoriously as possible, and not in a whining,
murmuring and complaining attitude! (2015:135)
Heavens not plagued by the indifference that pretty much runs the attitudes of folks in the world youre currently at!
Theres a lot more concern Here, because theres a lot more Love. (2015:147)
Youll find out eventually that thats the best attitude and confidence to have: not in your own strength and wisdom, but the
one from Above, the creative Power you came from! (2015:155)
Take it, whatever comes, with a victorious attitude! (2015:183)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
the Big Picture

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. 1Corinthians 13:12
Every day is an intricate new creation of Mine, full of many planned & coordinated processes, innumerable activities
behind the scenes... a brand-new work of art. Its a continual work of art that never stops, for you have to sleep, but I dont.
Were all constantly working behind the scenes for you & all of My children and those who are yet to become My children
for each new day to become just that step in time to bring them closer to Me in the way thats needed to bring about the
optimal result in the Big Picture Another great scene in the movie of life.
Each person has their own scintillating beauty, their own particular sparkle or shine to contribute to the Big Picture of My
creation & plan.
Be that yielded contact somewhere in the vast intricacy of the Big Picture of the universe & eternity, the relay that says
yes to God at the right time & place.
The great plan is that everything and everybody will lovingly interact, teamwork & co-operate in one heavenly, ecstatic &
climactic symphony... Everybody has an important part & role to play... everybody matters, everybody makes a difference,
everybody can contribute, and we all need each other.
Keep learning to see Me and My hand and My purpose behind the things that I allow to happen in your life, keep asking Me
about them, and about their deeper purpose.
Keep trusting that My ways are higher than yours, & that as hard to believe as it may seem right now, every little detail will
fall into place & wind up making perfect sense in its contribution to the Big Picture.
You've got a general view of the Big Picture, but there are still many, many details to discover, and since My Big Picture is
multi-dimensional, there will always be new angles, depths & glimpses to discover in it.
In fact, the Big Picture is a living picture that's still growing & evolving, not by itself, but by My design, as everything is, so,
you discover as you go & while it continues to grow. View life as an expedition with many things to observe & study, with
tons of details to glean & learn from.
Each person perceives as reality only a fraction of the grand picture. Only I can reveal the whole picture, and in due time, I
will.
There are many different shades of grey, & I will use all of them to make a perfect picture.
Even though the Book of Revelation talks about all the suffering and death that's going to befall the world toward its end,
there is incessant praise in heaven at the same time. They continue to praise Me in spite of all the suffering they see
happening on earth because they see something you can't. There is a perfect plan, and a perfect picture and sense in it all!
No matter what all the bad in your life amounts to, you've got to get ahold of that glimpse of My perfect picture, My perfect
sense in it all! You've got to see Me and My hand in it!
Growing & maturing is not just increasing your knowledge; it's increasing the bandwidth of the spectrum of what you can
actually see of the Big Picture.
It's exciting, when even the most mundane & seemingly loathsome experiences in life seem to make perfect sense in view
of the Big Picture. When everything makes sense & seems obviously conducive to the great plan of God Almighty. When
you're aware of those trials & tests just serving to bring you yet another step closer to Me.
If your faith and life-style, your attitude and everything about you is the real thing, then even the eventual crisis, of which
all the others were only shadows, will only be another part of your life of faith, My plan for you, My Big Picture &
everything.
If your faith is the real thing, then you'll also be able to deal with the ugly parts of the Big Picture, you won't have to seek
comfort in the Devil's dream world anymore.
Everybody has their role & part to play, & its one of the biggest tasks of the director or producers of a play, movie or TV
series, to find the perfect cast.
I chose each player, each actor for their perfect role, including yours.
In order to make sure you play your part the best you can, live! Enjoy it. Don't take it too seriously, but don't neglect to take
it serious enough, either. You don't have to have a clue about everything that's going on. You just have to play your part
the best you know how. As far as you're concerned, there's only one role & one part that matters most, & that's the one I've
given you to play.
Concentrate & focus on it with your whole heart! Meditate on it so you will get the supernatural anointing for it!

23

Don't let less than ideal "set conditions" distract you. It's rough sometimes, but everything has its price.
The play is multi-dimensional, taking place on all & various levels & platforms at the same time!
Enjoy acting out the part of your life, even with all the little, seemingly insignificant side-scenes & side roles you're having
to play.
Those who are willing to play those seemingly dumb little roles are the greatest stars Up Here.
We're working on a show that might not attract the fast-food entertainment consumers, but one that will endure the tests of
time.
Play your part with the dignity of one who knows that he's heir of a heritage that lasts.
Every day of your life is like a picture, which in itself is a piece of the puzzle of the big picture of your life, which again is a
piece of My Big Picture of everything.
My pictures are living, spiritual pictures, and they always represent the truth.
When you look at the day ahead of you, what do you see? In what way does My plan for you seem to be manifested
today?" It's a little bit like putting the pieces of a puzzle together, and each day is a small puzzle that only presents another
piece of the great picture puzzle of your life, which again is only another piece of the Big Picture of all of history.
The important thing is finding the right pieces & fitting them together, and often it's not so much in what you do - although
sometimes it is - as in what you can learn. It's a slow progress, because sometimes, instead of teaching you a new lesson,
I have to make sure you solidify your gains, I make sure that you've really learned the lesson you've just been taught.
Many of the little things that are going on in your life are connected, so let's try to put those pieces together.
All things that I have brought about in your life, every stream of input, every influence, every contact, every friendship...
they all work together toward My grander plan. Everything will make sense someday, even the apparently senseless.
Anything the Devil can do is only fuel for My motor. Just like it turns out that oil is being produced in the earth by the
centrifugal forces released through the earth's rotations. All the Devil accomplishes through his rantings and ravings is to
produce more fuel to keep My machine moving toward the completion of My plan and Big Picture.
Victory is to be able to grab hold of My peace & heavenly Big Picture of My organized structure of everything in spite of the
temporary chaos the Devil tries to create. You've got to see My heavenly landscape & beauty of what's going to be & what
really is in the heavenly Realm.
Don't seek to shun or avoid the pain. It's part of it all, the big picture of life... the dark shades, that make for beautiful
contrast.
Allow some room for disasters, for head-shaking events, stupidities and atrocities to learn from, to laugh at... It's all part of
the big picture. It's not all tragedy & drama. There's also some comedy.
There's even a place for cases you might not be able to figure out what sort of purpose there might be for a walking chaos
like them... There's a purpose for everything and everybody. Often you can do no other but stand back and let Me do, let
Me show and let it be.
The whole thing grows, slowly, like a gigantic puzzle, bit by bit (information by information), revealing My Big Picture, in
which you're participants.
The whole thing grows, that's the plan. While that snowball still looks the same old white, as you roll it through the snow,
and it's still made out of the same basic stuff, namely snow, it keeps growing and growing, though, and eventually
becomes quite a substantial weight to reckon with...
It changes. It progresses. It's never exactly the same old thing. There are new varieties and slants to discover all the time,
about those good old fundamental truths.
It always takes you back to the same simple but monumental truth and foundation.
The moment you think you've got it all figured out, a new door will open that will lead you into a whole new dimension you
never even assumed existed.
Everybody's got their own personal note, their own personal contribution to make to My Big Picture.
I like to include everybody I can and allow them to participate in the work on the Big Picture.
You may be sincerely convinced that you would have known better than Me, or a better way to do it, but please, bear with
Me for a little while longer and give Me a chance to bring this to an end.
The picture isn't done yet, and of course it doesn't make any sense to you yet. You're just going to have to wait until the
picture is finished.
How speechless you're all going to be when you'll see the perfection of the final outcome. In the meantime, bear with Me.
When it comes to the end of the road, you'll see that there would have been no other, no better, no more beautiful way to
bring home the point, make the message loud and clear, and engrave the lesson on every man, woman and child's heart.
You constantly discover new facets, new aspects, new details and angles, factors and clues to new secrets, mysteries and
revelations; things you weren't aware of before. The Big Picture is moving and growing; it is alive.

You cannot just stick it into any closed container and say, "Here, this is it: the whole truth and everything there is to know."
There's always more to it, always more. You may think now you've got it, and you've reached the bottom line, end of story,
and then a new chapter or whole new story begins.
The experience every human being gleans from their choices is what makes it all so special, and what makes this "Big
Picture" so exciting.
I don't only see the Big Picture more clearly than you do, but also the tiny little details, that are too microscopic for your
view to catch... all the processes taking place beneath the surface.
Often that which is conducive to immediate "happiness," or fulfilling of a temporary craving, will take one in the opposite
direction as far as their eternal happiness is concerned... their outcome in the Big Picture.
The biggest enemy and handicap and obstacle in the way of the Big Picture is the immediate "little" picture, that which
appears to be so big right in front of your noses, like the carrot on a string on a stick held in front of the donkey's nose...
That which you immediately want and makes you run blindly into a certain direction: "I want it, I want it..."
Learning to decline, and not yield to the immediate temptation of what one wants in the present, is one of the major
contributors of beauty to the outcome of the Big Picture; the rare exception of those who did not give in to the urges of the
here and now.
We don't need any parallel universes, because the other options have already all happened in My mind. If you're really that
curious, some day I could share them with you, but it's not actually anything you need to try out in real life.
This reality, and this life, as paradox and irrational as it may seem, with all its contradictions and things that don't seem to
make any sense, is, after all, the one real thing. This is it! You can and ought to really put your whole heart into it, because
this is it.
No use wondering what could have been or might have been in some other life or parallel world or universe or some other
reality... No need to look for anything better somewhere out there. This is it, right here, the one and only, the best. You
won't find anything better anywhere else. I know, it sounds hard to believe because there's so much about this world that
doesn't make any sense.
But most of that is inflicted by man on himself or his fellowman, and mostly due to all the screwed up mindsets the Enemy
has planted in him, and the consequent lack of love and trust in Me.
If you can fully trust that I'm only allowing the best possible option for you right now, here in this life, then who needs an
endless amount of other variables and options to try out?
There's a definite effort happening on My part and all those working alongside Me, both in the Spirit World and in the
physical, including you, to make the best possible out of this. It's supposed to become a masterpiece, and not just one
more random result of innumerable other trials and errors...
It doesn't mean, either, that everything is preset and predestined, but that we're putting our best into helping man to make
the right choices, or save him out of his mess when he made the wrong ones.
We're not just standing by idly and let the wheel of fortune spin its tale. After all, mankind wouldn't stand a chance if we
just left this world over to the Devil completely.
We have to give him certain leeway, access and entrance and even power over this world, according to the degree that
man's choices enable him to, but always and only "thus far and not further."
There's a lot of planning and strategy involved, and it's anything but random.
It all grows and grows into one. Its not just an exclusive little relationship between Me and thee and none other, but a
growing thing the Big Picture.
My Picture primarily consists of living souls, tangible human beings like you and Me, since Ive become a Human Being
for your sakes, and as some have begun to realize, that event changed everything.
Perfection is not the absence of imperfection, but the ability to integrate imperfection.
Im integrating your imperfection in My perfect picture. Of course, Im also transforming you in the process, and through
your integration and melting into My Big Picture and becoming one with it all, you actually become perfect, not of yourself,
but by absorbing My essence.
I have an individual plan for everyone, not just one big plan for all. In the end, each plan will work together perfectly and
weave into one perfect Big Picture that will reveal itself as a Master Plan for the universe.
In the Beginning was the Word.
So, lets have some exchange of words so that I can create My world, My part of the Big Picture in you today.
This world is still in its diapers!
The Big Picture is still in its imperfect, relative beginning stages, and theres lots of room for improvement.
Sooner or later youre going to marvel at how everything is wonderfully connected and intertwined in My Big Picture
Even the Judases and the ones who need our forgiveness the most are an essential part of the Big Picture, and you are
connected to them within that picture. There is a relation, and their destiny and fate is dependent on your capacity to
forgive them.

25

The more you flow with My flow, the more My power in you will grow Its like a river. What started out as a little trickle
somewhere in some remote mountainous region, is being filled and fed by another trickle here and there, each growing
into bigger brooks and rivers, gradually, and they connect at some point, only to make My main instrument and major
channel even bigger, wider, larger, and an even greater source and bringer of life than before
Sometimes it takes a while until one river flows into another, but eventually, they all wind up in the same big pool, the
sea
Only those who dig a little deeper, who care to cast more than just a superficial glance at what is happening, they catch a
glimpse of the mystery and magic thats really happening, the mystery of the paradox, and unexpected, as opposed to the
usual, obvious humdrum, like so many of those Hollywood movie plots that make you foresee whats going to happen
next.
I want My story to turn out a bit better than the average. I want My picture to be the best. I may allow it to look less than
promising for a while to give the competitors a chance, but in the end, it will turn out just like with that river: all those
resources will flow into the same great Source of everything, and will contribute to one common good. Oh, the credits will
be handed to each individual involved, and even the Devil will be accredited with his part of the greatest culprit of all times,
but just like some of those participants in those film or TV productions, a lot of those folks know to whom credit is due,
and that when it all comes down to it, nothing would have happened without the Director.
Sometimes folks may be prematurely tempted to wonder, Why does He allow this to happen now? or that turn of events,
and they figure they wouldnt have done it that way, they would have done it better.
Its not like I wont listen to your suggestions and petitions, and that I wont change My mind about things if I definitely am
convinced and persuaded that you had a better idea, or even to give it a try, but most of the times youll find that My
original choices are usually the best.
Life is like a great, interactive motion picture, and I allow My actors to change the script somewhat as they go, just like
some highly respected and well-known actors are able to build in their little spontaneous changes into the script. My
prophets and stars have the power to change My mind on certain issues, they just have to have the faith and the courage
to try it and, of course, a good alternative plan.
I like constructive criticism with good, constructive and productive alternative suggestions. Theyre always welcome
among the flood of the usual complaints.
We have our little suggestions box called prayer, and if theres anything youd like to change, just let Me know! You can
alter the final outcome of the Big Picture by your personal input. If theres anything youd like to change or try out, say so.
I work in teamwork, and Im open to constructive suggestions from those whom I can trust to come forth with such, who
are mature and well enough on My wavelength that I can trust that they genuinely seek the interest of the best possible
outcome of the Picture, not just a more glamorous role or position for themselves
I grant and distribute My Power and authority to My servants and handmaidens. You can each become partakers of My
Power, wielders of that power, and, after all, it is through you that I do My visible work on earth; through you, the actors,
that I convey My ideas and My mind to the people, the audience, who each become participants in the Big Picture,
according to their choices
Remember not to make the frame more fancy than the picture itself. Allow the Big Picture to steal the show, and dont
allow your little frame to try to run the whole show by itself, okay?
You like the spiritual puzzle of putting all the pieces of the Big Picture together into one comprehensible frame.
Try to not over-employ your head in search for the missing pieces, but let Me guide you intuitively. Learn how to hear and
listen with your spiritual senses, and think deeper than just with the mind.
The instant, temporary results may not always be exactly what you wished and hoped for, but its the final result, the
outcome of the Big Picture, that matters, and thats where youve got to keep your vision.
What the Big Picture mainly consists of is people, and in that aspect, theres yet quite a bit more to discover.
Even though the heart of man is the same all over the world when it comes to his need for Me, there are yet many
differences between the ways people allow their hunger for Me to be quenched in different cultures.
Theres nothing like the real live experience of getting to know people and cultures elsewhere to really give you a bigger
view of the Big Picture. Theres yet more to discover about life.
The right choice to make is to accept Me, to integrate and include Me, and to acknowledge Me, to seek Me in My Creation.
The wrong choice is to ignore Me, deny Me, refuse to accept that Im there, and thus exclude Me from their equation and
Big Picture.
It is My Fathers will for His creations and sons and daughters to progress, and not to stand still, but to advance, and the
direction He wants everything to go, is obvious: closer to Him, on a path that improves in relation to Him, a state of greater
cooperation and communication and interaction with Him; to become an integral and well-functioning part of His Big
Picture of Everything
Even with all the constant worsening of the world, I can effect some improvements within some chosen regions and
aspects of the world, and I keep painting and building and establishing My Big Picture within the crumbling picture of the
Matrix. I keep filtering My eternal and lasting chosen elements out of this world from among all the temporal that is
destined to crumble.

26

Some things depend on you, and in order to make this Big Picture more exciting, I allow Myself to be surprised by you. In
other words, I have given you greater power than you thought, which also leaves you with a greater responsibility than you
previously may have thought: A lot is up to you and each individual and their choices.
All efforts to merely provide for oneself are counterproductive, when it comes to the Big Picture.
The more of the Big Picture you can absorb into your little picture, the closer it will be to the complete picture. Of course,
its impossible for anyone to get the whole picture during their lifetime, but at least you would want to make an effort to
learn as much as possible.
In the Big Picture of life, youve got to let each scene unfold and enjoy as you go, and most of all, trust!
Though I used the recent quieter years to draw you closer to Me and for you to learn to hear My voice more clearly and see
Me and My hand more clearly in the Big Picture of everything, it doesnt mean that whats coming now is going to be any
less good, educational or purposeful.
By clinging to Me and My eternal Realm, you manage to let go of that which is less important since it is far less real in the
scope of the Big Picture, the eternal scope, the one that really matters. (2011:9)
I just happen to be the big Key Factor, and the sooner all the other little factors begin to realize that and avail themselves
of that fact, the more theyre going to contribute to the final outcome of the Big Picture. Its not so much what you do or
even are, but what you allow Me to do and be in your life (2011:29)
Since Im the Creator of the Big Picture of life, the landscape, My plan for you and details may significantly change
according to My vision and according to My wisdom and creative imagination (2011:35)
The big question is, and what we as in, the whole universe are trying to find out here by means of this life, the life of
each individual and this thing called history that Ive often referred to as the Big Picture, is whose voice it really pays to
listen to, and whose advice was actually the best in the long run: Is it all those voices that tell you to do it their way, the
normal and regular way, the way basically everybody else does it?
Or is it that odd voice in the silence telling you to do it totally differently, in fact, diametrically opposed to the way theyre
telling you to? (2011:49)
Look at how Ive had to pull you along for all these years! And yet you definitely wound up playing your significant part in
My Big Picture. If Ive managed to do it for you, dont you think I can manage doing the same thing for them? (2011:51)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Change

Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. Psalm 55:19
Habits and familiarity stand between that what you are & what you could be, between what you could accomplish and that
which you actually wind up doing.
Everyday is a completely new chapter. Be prepared for anything, for changes.
I am a God of the New. Although I, the Lord, change not, I am always the new, the unknown element, which is why people
shun Me, for they are used to their old, comfortable ruts. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear Me not. He
that is open to Me is open to change. He that seeks Me seeks the new.
As long as youre pleased with yourself, its pretty hard for Me to get you to desperately want change.
Stay alert in the Spirit, and open to unexpected moves & changes, never underestimating the little things.
Im re-making you. Its a painful process, but it will be worth it.
Empty your mind, the glass of your life, completely of all that has been filling it previously, let Me give it a real good rinse,
or even create a whole new vessel of it altogether, if need be, and let Me fill it.
Its time for radical changes & time to get down to serious business with Me!
If something doesnt work, I dont seem to be blessing it, and withdraw My support, its time for a change. As long as
everything is all comfortable, I hardly get any of My children to move. I always have to turn up the heat before they will get
stirred up enough to look for a change or a different direction.
Be more than conquerors by the faith which overcometh the World, faith in Me & the higher calling & destiny Ive ordained
& empowered you for. Its going to be like flipping a switch, pressing the delete button, & your former self will be
remembered no more. Old things have passed away, behold, all things are made new. This is what it means to truly
become a new creature in Me; thats how drastic the difference is.
Sometimes youve got to get right back to where you started from, in order to get somewhere new. If the roads youve
been walking so far havent taken you to your destination, youve got to get back to where you started from & try again.
Only remember, its a new era, and there are new methods & means youre going to have to use, new songs youre going to
have to sing, and new tools youre going to have to apply.
Are you willing to change & let Me make you a new creature, or are you hanging on to the old the shadows of the past?
Leave the old ways behind. Come, step out into the new! Dont stay in the old, worn out rut!
As long as you still rely on yourself or your situation, its no good. Its got to be stirred up, lest it stagnates & becomes no
good. As long as theres motion in it, I can use it & it generates energy. As soon as the flow of motion stops, it dies &
becomes useless to Me.
So, let it blow, let it move, even if its all tossed about from one extreme to the other.
There's still way too much of you in that vessel! Let Me pour it out & re-fill you, renew you! Give Me the rests of your old
self, let Me pour them on the ground & re-make you into something better; not a shining, glorious ornament, but a useful
vessel!
The Devil is trying hard to stop you from becoming a completely yielded vessel. Anything that leads you back to the
comfortable path of compromise with the old path you've been trotting, is less likely to be from Me than from him. I want
you to have change. He wants you to stagnate. I say: "Launch out into the deep & forsake all that you have & I'll give you a
hundred times more!"
Life is exciting if you flow with My river of change!
Sometimes you take what you're used to as the standard & the norm, but the closer you get to My Spirit, the more you
realize that you're by far not anywhere near the top of the mountain yet, but actually have just conquered a few hills, and
the real mountain is still waiting for you.
The flesh sits there, self-satisfied, & pleased by its own routine. "Why, things are going just fine. I don't need any help.
We've done fine so far without any extra help, and we're going to manage..."

28

It strives against humility and against the changes I would like to bring into your life. "Oh, let's continue on here, in our
nice & comfortable rut..."
Walk that road toward new horizons, open doors of change, toward surrender of your own ways.
Those who are in their ruts of doing what they've always been doing the way they've always been doing them, will
probably continue to do so, but those who are open & receptive to My winds of change can enjoy new breezes & exciting
changes, both, in the spirit, and as a result of those changes in the spirit, also significant changes in the physical.
Each day is like a new beginning from scratch. You can't take the inspiration, the feelings of victory and triumph from the
day before with you into the new day. It's a little bit like daily forsaking all, or dying daily & being born again. It shows to
which extent I like to make all things new. So, every new day is a new challenge, a new chapter of your life to be written,
involving new lessons, new treasures to hunt and collect, and, of course, new battles to win.
They're really continuations & sequels of all you've learned in the days before today, but yet there's a feeling & nuance of
newness & strangeness to it all. The victories of yesterday were won, but the outcome of today is still undetermined.
Changes are good for you, even if they're just changes of mind, of attitudes and perspectives and direction of focus.
Once you start changing, those changes usually become platforms for greater & better changes.
Changes are almost always blessed by Me, especially those that require a certain amount of boldness & sacrifice on your
part.
As long as you keep saying "yes" to Me & My open doors, you can be assured that I'll bless you. Trust Me for the outcome.
The power of habit keeps you lagging behind the way I would have you adapt to My changes .
Keep praying for changes to happen. You don't like the way things are? Pray for Me to change them!
You can shape your environment & change your world according to your faith.
You've got to cultivate your faith, & keep it growing! You've got to keep making progress, constantly gain new territory,
face new challenges, and have new changes.
Radical, supernatural changes are required to make radical, supernatural progress!
Spread your wings & fly to new horizons, do new things and enjoy the freedom I am giving you!
In order to open up a new book, you have to close the old book first. In order to start something new, you'll have to forsake
the old, something has to die in order to give way to the new.
I'm making a new man out of you. One a lot less like yourself and a lot more like Me.
This is a time of clearing out old cobwebs, of getting the victory over former bad habits, and a time of preparing for
something new.
Sometimes something good has got to give for the benefit of something better. It's called sacrifice.
The greatest changes take the longest amounts of time to bring them about, the inner changes of heart.
Accept change as something good, something necessary, something wonderful in your life, and receive it with arms wide
open, just like a baby. A baby brings lots of changes into your life, and that's why children are becoming so unpopular in
today's society, who constantly resist change & fear not God.
The changes I bring into your life may look a little disturbing to you now, maybe useless, eating up your energy and
resources, costing you effort to dress & feed them, but in the future, if you keep feeding and seeing them through with the
right kind of spirit & attitude, you will see that it will truly have been for the best.
Change is really the opposite of the Devil's spirit of stagnation. Although he pretends to be the great pioneer of change &
progress in the World & accuses Christians & believers of being old-fashioned, in the spirit his philosophy is really old and
rotten, and the same kind of selfish & greedy philosophy he has been introducing since the beginning.
Ask yourself everyday, what can we change today in order to make things better?
Any change happening in your lives is going to be for good and for the better.
Not only passively and reluctantly accept changes, but actively use them as a weapon to go on the offensive.
An attack is definitely a change, isn't it?
So, keep changing! Keep revoluting! Keep revolving and evolving, growing and splitting your cells, & multiplying.
Its better to make changes than merely taking them.
If you make changes instead of merely taking and accepting them as they come, then you take the initiative, and you call
the shots, you're on the offensive, and not on the defensive.
It's not a time to keep going business as usual. It's a time of great change and a time of contemplation. It's a time to seek
My face & see what things I would have you do differently than the way you have been doing them. It's a time to get ready
for even greater changes ahead, for strengthening the things that remain, your faith & trust in Me and the things which are
not of the Earth, not seen, not temporal...

29

It's a time to start getting your act together as the messengers I want you to be, and not to keep leaning on the arm of the
flesh. It's time to quit repeating the same mistakes over & over again, of just doing what comes naturally, the obvious,
without even bothering to ask Me about it & consult with Me.
It's a time to be willing to let Me kill those unfruitful elements in your life & to allow Me to purge them & go on to newer,
more fruitful ways, methods & things.
You can see the light on the horizon, but it still takes a little while until it's fully day.
A new day will come. A new page will be turned over. A new book will be written, and things will have changed. In the
meantime, pray for those changes to come to pass, which you can see now only in the distance, on the horizon. Don't fret
or get impatient, but pray them through!
I will make these things & changes come about in My perfect time, you can just focus on them in faith, patience and trust,
and help bring them about by faithful prayer.
Just because you have grown used to the way things are doesn't mean that that's the way they're actually supposed to be.
I have come to bring change; a change of each & every life, a change of direction for each & every man and woman as well
as for mankind in general. My message was and still is: "repent!" Which means, "turn around! You're going the wrong way!
You may think you're going the right way, but I'm telling you something different! Now, who are you going to believe? Here,
this is the right way to go: follow Me, and I'll show you!"
One of Satan's greatest and most successful weapons against mankind is that feeling, "This feels familiar, it feels okay, it
doesn't feel strange, so it must be the right way!" They become so familiar with the wrong way, the Devil's way, that they
actually think it's the right way.
I can change any life! I might just do it in order to prove to you how wrong you are in putting Me or anyone else in a box,
because anything is possible, and anyone can change!
Be open to the possibility of Me changing anybody, no matter how hopeless it may look to you!
With Me, you better get ready for the unexpected.
The spiritual winter of your heart is over. The hardships you've been experiencing, the heat I've been putting on, are
causing the hard shell to soften & crack open & finally the new you is coming to life, the person I wanted you to be. Not the
cold, reserved, critical & calculating old you, but the loving, warm, affectionate, embracing you, that does not hold back
from Me nor from others! - A giving you, a smiling you, bubbling over with My humble joy and love, dropping warmth and
love and affection and encouragement into the hearts of those you pass by.
You can change everything today. Being open to change is a key factor.
Behold, I make all things new. I am the One Who brings variety & change! You can interpret that both ways: either you just
passively and patiently wait until I bring some kind of change about, or you take part in bringing change and renewal about
by absorbing Me, including Me in everything and focusing on Me, expecting change & thus helping to make it happen.
All newness & variety that is good & positive originates from Me, and I am the Newness, the Variety & the Change you
seek!
Where do look for variety, for newness, for spunk & inspiration? At all the things you cannot have? No. At Me!
Sometimes you've just got to forget everything you've learned in order to find the truth for the moment! You've got to
forget those circumstances which framed your condition that formed your view of things, in other words, just smash the
whole picture (icon=idol) of your perception of things & let Me make it over completely!
If something hinders or stops you from having changes, if something ties you down to a certain rut and keeps you from
obeying My commandment to go into all the world & preach the gospel to every creature, then you can almost always
assume that the Enemy's behind it.
Changes have to come from within, through loving fellowship & interaction with Me, through spending time with Me &
loving Me, you can't force these things in the flesh! Changes of the heart are miracles that only I can bring about, you can't
do it yourself, so quit trying & let Me do it!
All things change. Perspectives change. Modes of operating change. Tactics change. The emphasis on certain weapons
can change & shift to another. There's more to learn. This doesn't mean we discard the previous classes and lessons and
acquired skills altogether, we just focus more on other things for a change, to learn additional, new things.
Things will not continue as they were & you might as well get ready for change, and more change. You've got to keep
growing, keep expanding your horizon, keep embracing the new, the fresh, although it initially may feel strange to you.
We're not trying to establish a new ritual or routine. We're trying to keep things alive and moving and progressing, and that
includes and means changing.
If you want to make forward movement, then this requires change. You can't expect progress without change.
Open yourself to new images from My Spirit, new experiences, new feelings. You must be completely open to the totally
new. I am the New, the flesh is the old. I am the Door to the new, the Way to the new, the Shepherd leading you to new
pastures, the new bread, the new water of life, the Light, making obsolete the old darkness which formerly surrounded
you, and leading you ever onwards, away from the former, the old, the well-known.

30

Focus on the new way, the new thing I am doing in your life.
The world always goes the way of the flesh, the selfish way, the way of decay, the ways of death! My way is always the new
way, the contrary to the usual way, the revolutionary, unselfish way, the way of faith!
Following Me requires flexibility & openness to change. Following Me is a constant revolution. I am Revolution. Stay
flexible and revolutionary!
It's so important to keep revoluting, to keep changing in your life, & not fall into any ruts, routines & habits.
You're supposed to come away changed from My Presence; you're supposed to take some of My Presence with you &
show the World, let them see that you've been with Me, it's supposed to make a difference!
Stay focused on Me and only turn to the world in order to show them Me & the influence I've been having on your life, the
change I've evoked in you, the difference I made in your life!
What a mess people can make of their lives if they just go through the motions, walk in the flesh & never stop in order to
truly reach out & grasp for My Spirit, grab hold of Me and My grace to change their lives.
You have the power to change your circumstances, and I need you to make use of that power!
Health troubles are like warning signs that things can't keep going the way they have. A break or a change is required.
And, as you know, changes are good for you, including physical changes like changing your diet, or fasting for some time.
Ringing out the old, ushering in the new is one of life's cycles & main themes.
Live a life of moving, vibrant change. Ever-flowing, turning, revolving, moving, never stopping, never stagnating, forever
young, forever changing. You can only do that by living the life of the Spirit, by attuning your life to My Spirit, for what My
Spirit signifies in this world, is change. In reality, it is ever constant, but as far as this world is concerned, it signifies
change, because the state of this world is rebellion against Me, against My newness. It wants to stagnate, it wants to rot. It
is death. I am life, but this world is death. So, by staying alive & continuing to move & flow with My Spirit, by living the life
of the Spirit, you actually bring life into this dying, and in some ways already dead world.
You're My heralds of change. You don't play along in their game, because you know it isn't going to last. It is programmed
& destined to fail, to cease, in fact, it's already petering out. With your life-style, you're signaling change, sending out the
message, "I have changed, and if you were brave enough, you could do it too! We don't all have to be slaves of the Matrix.
Change is possible. And change will come. Don't think your system is the only one possible. Don't think it's going to last
forever..."
I'm still planning to come & take over this world. I'm still planning on changing everything! I'm still on My way!
Some of My changes are not fast, but slow & majestic. I take time.
Don't just let the things I tell you serve to inform you, to merely add to your knowledge, but let them form you, shape your
heart, and consequently change your life & your actions. Only this way will you be able to move out into other people's
lives & change them also.
Be a living token of the fact that all things will not continue as they are.
I've always had to stop the flow of business as usual. Moses wouldn't have left for the wilderness if he hadn't killed the
Egyptian, if everything would have continued on the way it had been...
I'm bringing you into a position where you are more willing to make changes that you simply wouldn't undergo voluntarily,
out of your own initiative, if there was no need for them.
You need change, & change in any form is good for you, and the more courage you have for greater, radical changes, the
better.
Listen to the Spirit. The Spirit has got new things to say today, the wind bloweth where it listeth, and it pays to find out
where, and which tune She's singing today.
Maybe we've been getting away with singing yesterday's tune today, but you won't be able to get away with it tomorrow.
We're heading into the future, and I'm giving you constant upgrades.
To hell with the old way. Open your life to My new, unconventional way, the way on which you'll have to trust Me for every
step.
If the situation is bad, change it! I have given you the power to change your situation!
The most important changes take place in the heart, and changing your circumstances won't do the trick if there hasn't
been an inward change happening.
All I'm saying is, "Try this! This is the way We do things in heaven, and it's the ideal way I've ordained for My children to do
things in general, and if you try it, it might bring about some major improvements in your life."

31

The first thing you've got to change in order to change the world & make it better is yourself. And what other way do I have
to let you know that you need to change; that things are not okay the way things are, but to allow things to go wrong?
In cases where your service for Me is what matters most & is of much greater importance than any relationship ever could
be, changes in relationships, including separations, come more often from My hand than the Enemy. It's more often than
not a blessing, which brings positive changes into the separating individuals' lives, freeing them from the chains of former
habits and ruts.
If you're having serious long-standing problems in your relationship and serious doubts about it - doubts about the
authenticity of the motivations that hold it together, then you should certainly be brave enough to seriously consider a
separation and at least talk and pray about it.
Sometimes I make things "unbearable" in order to evoke change. The only alternative would be a slow, painful death,
caused by stagnation, compromise, and what ultimately amounts to disobedience.
So, please allow Me to rock your boat again, because, as lovely as the ride may have been, I'm afraid you got a little off the
course & track that I want you to follow, and if that's what still matters to you in the first place, then definite changes will
have to be made, and I mean any kind of change it takes, not just the ones you would be willing to make. If you're not
willing to make the kind of changes I want you to make, you know that I can make your life of compromise & disobedience
fairly unbearable, and if you refuse to give Me what is rightfully Mine, I can take a collection that will far surpass what I
might have required from you in the first place.
Changes are good for you. I never take one thing away from you without giving you something better.
Keep your eyes & ears open for changes. Be flexible. Be movable.
You constantly need to upgrade your artillery in order to stay up to par with the Enemy.
You can't just remain the same, you can't just keep what you've got, but you've got to change, upgrade, make progress.
Sometimes the old equipment or modus operandi just won't do anymore, and you'll need to upgrade, and when the time
comes, there's simply no way around it.
Move along with the flow of the new. Be open and ready for the flow of the new through you, that which will radically renew
the System of Everything.
Bring as much change into your life as possible, so that it won't just be the same rut and routine.
It's the old man, your carnal man, which is at enmity with God, whom you must deny access to your system, the place from
which you govern your life, like an old operating system that doesn't want to give up its realm easily, although it has
already been replaced by a new and better one.
Of course, the Enemy actively tries to install the old system again, your old ways of doing things, your old habits, or the
old ways of the flesh sometimes in a new disguise.
The old self is all about taking and getting. The new man, the new creature, is all about giving. The old man is negative, the
new man is positive. Once you're born again and you have learned to let Me empty you of all the old things and then fill
you with My new and good things, the input that will cause you to give instead of constantly having you concerned about
getting more, acquiring more, consuming and accumulating, which was the game of the old man, then you can learn to
embrace your new man, My spiritual creation that is you.
Often the truly needed changes are changes in your own mindsets, attitudes and perception of things, inward changes,
changes within yourself, rather than the other party.
Like this you can become a much more effective agent of change, too, if first of all, you allow Me to change yourself. The
first on the list to change the World is "yourself."
You can change your attitude, your way of seeing things, you can let Me change your heart, and much of your world will
already be changed. You will be much more content & happy with things the way they are, a lot more trusting, that I'm
having My way and that My way is good.
Strive to get to a point where you can see things My way, so that you know what really needs to be changed, and what doesn't.

More often than not, it's really so that what needs changing is yourself, your own heart, your ideas, your mindset, your
concept of things, your perception.
Don't look so far for the things that need to be changed, but start right here, in your very heart! Allow Me to change you
from the inside, and often you'll find half of the changes you would have liked to be made not even necessary anymore. If
everyone would just allow Me to change them and work on the beam in their own eyes (you see that it's all a matter of
seeing?), then a lot of "splinters" you previously saw in your brothers' eyes would all of a sudden not even really be there
anymore... Or if they would, you'd find it so much easier to help that brother remove it by your own sample of having let Me
freed you from your own beam, your own renewed perception of things.
It's like that prayer, "Lord, help us to change those things that need to be changed, and to not change those things that
don't need to be changed, and most of all, help us to know the difference."
What needs to be changed most and first of all is you.
Make each day as if it were the first day of a new period of your life, and it is, because it's a different period than the past.
It's the present: the beginning of the future, where you can do all things differently than you ever did them before.
As long as there's still room in your life for improvement, as long as your life isn't perfect yet, you should always be openly
welcoming change and that wonderful opportunity to learn how to do things differently than in the past, to see things from

32

a totally new angle, and just let each day be a new learning experience, a new episode, almost like the beginning of a
whole new life.
Break out of the cocoon of the old! Experience My newness. Let Me renew you, your vision, your concepts, your outlook,
your whole being.
To be "transformed by the renewing of your minds" is something you have to experience every day in order to find My
good and acceptable and perfect will for you every day (Rom.12.2). Let Me "reincarnate" in you every day, to make your life a
radical force of change for Me. Don't get stuck in any old mindsets, even if you "already have the truth." Good for you! But
what is the truth that I want to teach you today? What is the lesson, the metanoia, the revelation for this day? This day, I
can make all things new. This day, things will never have to be the same they used to be! This day, I can work in your life in
a way I never have before, if you determine to let Me. This day can be the first day of not only the rest of your life, but of a
brand new life altogether, with brand new prospects, aspects and perspectives, a brand new outlook, brand new horizons,
visions, goals, methods... all depending on how open you are for Me and My changes, My Grace!
You can be constantly renewed with heavenly fresh air and new whiffs of My Spirit (Tit.3:5).
I bring new concepts, new perspectives, new pictures & illustrations to your mind to give you a renewed vision.
Everything can change. The factors can change, the parties involved can change, the cards can change. Those who
formerly were against Me can change and work for Me instead, as it unfortunately works the other way around...
Your friends of yesterday can become your enemies of tomorrow and vice versa. The only thing that changes not and you
can rely on is My being on your side.
It all depends on choices made within those different fractions, people, governments, societies... Their structures change
from within according to the decisions and choices made on individual levels as well as corporate.
With fearful people transformation takes place more slowly as they carefully make each step, making sure they're not
giving more than they can afford, or falling into some trap which they suspect around just about every corner.
We're supposed to change the world. You're not just supposed to moan about the state it's in, you're supposed to do
something to change it!
What have you done today to change the world, to improve it and to make it different from the miserable state you're so
miserable about?
Be a sample of flexibility and openness to change; of yieldedness and humility: be living proof that it's not all that bad to
forsake one or more of your own ideas for the sake of a simpler, easier solution.
I don't leave you clueless. You may be clueless up until the point you ask Me about it, but once you do, everything can
change. In that "New York Minute" when you come to ask Me anything, everything can change!
Nothing has to stay the same. I've got the power to change and radically alter everything, any situation, mood or
circumstance you may find yourself in, any state of powerlessness or frustration.
I bring about those changes in your life to avoid that the same should happen to you that's happening in so many others'
lives: "Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God."
It is the changes that make you revere Me, respect and appreciate Me as the faithful Constant that I am.
It will help you cope with any losses, changes, any crises and drastic turn of events & circumstances.
If you consciously make Me the one remaining Constant in your life, you'll see how easy it will become for you to adapt to
any kind of change.
Its time to try a new thing, to have faith for new steps, & for Me to open new doors and avenues.
The winds of change are blowing, but man's nature is thus that he often ignores them and resists them. He tries to keep
things the way they are, tries to preserve and conserve them, and continue all things as they have been (2Peter 3:4).
Wishing things were different so that you can do better just won't work. You've got to make the best out of what you've got,
you can do your best to make things better from where you are, and you'll see that that's the way to get ahead, or change
the circumstances. You yourself can change them, either through your prayers or actions or words, but never through
moaning and complaining about them.
The power to change things is in your hands.
You don't like the way things are? Change'em!
Being accepted by others makes you comfortable about who and what you are already. But I want you to keep changing, I
want you to keep moving and progressing more in My direction.
Sometimes familiarity between people is the very factor that most hinders anyone from becoming a new creature. They
would like to become one, but the other person won't let them because they continue to see the old man, the person they
used to be, in them.
Sometimes I use a third person to help someone become the new creature they're supposed to be, especially when that
person has the sort of qualities that the one I'm trying to change lacks.
It's the essence of change vibrating in you that lets others know you're alive.

33

It all depends on how open you are to My input, how adaptable to what I'm bringing into your life...
Life is full of surprises. And often those surprises, those things that turned out so different from the way you expected, are
key factors in making you change.
That's why people can change so drastically in their personalities when they mature.
Experience has taught them that life has this quality of tossing about all their former expectations. Their own little
concepts and perceptions of the world and mindsets simply often don't work out, and they realize they ought to try a
different direction and head down a different track...
Often, the conclusion they come to is, "What do I really know at all?" All their former concepts and truths are being tossed
over a heap, and they realize they've got to start anew and build a different concept, a different life, or a different family, a
different job... Whatever it is they think they need to change.
And it's good. Changes are good for them.
Change of heart is something you need to seek and want and ask for, like Salvation.
If you think you don't need change, it's as if you think you're already perfect.
What do you think is the purpose of all My instructions to you, of all the exposures of sin and the Enemy's tactics in your
personal life? It's so that you change things, change wrong attitudes and behavior and thought patterns. If you want to
change the world, the first step is to change yourself, or allow Me to change you or help you change.
You should actively seek out the areas in which you need change in your personal life!
Don't let the vicious cycle become a permanent cycle.
Just decide to implement some change in the "matrix," the way things are, the rut and routine of what your life is at
present.
You want to change things and change the way they are? You bet you can!
If you realize you need to change, or even only that it wouldn't be a bad idea to change, you can't expect that the mere
realization alone is going to solve all your problems: "Poof, now I'm changed, presto!"
Because then, as soon as the slightest bit goes wrong, you'll wonder, "What happened? Is that what I get for it?" and you
even wonder if your intention to change might be what caused the problem.
Nothing could be further from the truth. It's just that you haven't even seriously begun to change yet. You may think, and
live in the delusion that just because you are now willing to change, the process of changing is already complete, but that
is, of course, nothing more than wishful thinking.
The bulk of the work is still ahead of you, and if you let the first sign of difficulty dissuade you from seeing it through, then
you'll be making it very easy for the Devil.
You've got to keep wanting change, keep seeking change and keep asking Me to highlight areas in your life that would be
good to change.
Sometimes it's personal ruts and lack of change which make people grow together in an unhealthy type of codependency,
almost like an addiction to the way things are. But if you determine to change things about you, personally, your habits,
your attitude, your outlook, behavior, and even your appearance, then you make room for new things.
Its your life, and you have not only the liberty and the right, but the duty to make necessary changes in it that I require of
you. If you don't manage to make those changes together, then you just have to take the first step alone. After all, it's your
life that needs change, right?
While you're still in the beginning stages of the "new you," it may come across as a little clumsy, and sometimes you may
only find a lack of support from others, who don't even know what's going on. You may think, "Come on, everybody, don't
you realize I'm trying to change here, so could you please give me a hand?"
But all they can figure is, "Oh, he must be up to his old antics again..."
So, personal change and change of heart is something that you and you alone have got to be serious about and got to
have the determination to see through. You can't make it dependent at all on whatever support you might be getting from
others. Chances are there will be none. People have unrealistic expectations of each other at times, and they figure, if
you've come to grips with the fact that you ought to change things about you, then you'd better do it quickly, quietly and
pleasantly.
But that's not always how it works. It's like learning to ride a bike, drive a car or learning to fly: there are some not so
smooth landings and manoeuvres you make on your way to getting used to the new method of transporting yourself from
A to B, and all the other drivers behind you shake their heads...
But don't let that deter you. Just keep on learning from your mistakes and keep your focus on the goal, a new, more
pleasant you, no matter what it takes to get there.
They told you it would be good to acquire these new qualities, alright, but it's up to you to acquire and learn them. The
work and the job are yours. This is your role to play. It's your magic act you've got to work on, with My help, of course, and
have Me show you, My apprentice, how to transform the old, grumpy you, into a new, cheerful and more pleasant version.
I'll show you all the moves and tricks, but you've got to do the learning.
It's the era of miracles, alright, and the first miracle I want to perform in your life is on you! The first life I want to
miraculously change is yours, the first resurrection I want to perform through you is the raising up of a wonderful, new you
from the ashes of the old.
It takes a few more steps than one to get there. There's the "roll ye away the stone" stage, then the "unwrap him" stage,
and finally, the "come forth!"
There will also be attempts of dissuasion: "Lord, are You serious? He's been dead for so long, he stinketh..." But you've
just got to be determined to see it through: "Do you want to see the miracle of the new me, or don'tcha?"

34

It's miracle time, resurrection time, and show time, folks! Let's have some action around here, and show off some
miraculous transformation power! And guess who'll be the first one we'll perform our miraculous transformation power
on? Yes, none less than little old, insignificant you! After all, if they see that we've managed to radically change and
overhaul you, then they'll know anything wonderful can happen from there on.
You better believe Me for big things, and expect big changes to happen!
I'm trying to get you out of your little ruts and routines in order to bring about something new - a break with the old, and
the beginning of something new. Forget about the former way of doing things, period. Make room for the new.
I like flexibility, adaptability, mobility and availability, readiness to become whatever it is I happen to need at the time.
That's what I call revolutionary.
The last thing I want is for everything to continue as usual. Rut-thinking has never turned anyone on to turn the world
right-side-up for Me! No more "business-as-usual."
There's got to be movement and revolution happening, and in order for that to happen, some things have got to change!
Stop & find out what it is I want you to change and do differently.
You have believed in change, and have invested your time accordingly, not in the ways of this world, which you know are
going to change, but in My eternal and everlasting and unshakable values.
I'm not allowing things to be too comfortable for you. If everything was in order, and you could just live your wee happy
little life in comfort, ease and prosperity, you wouldn't care too much about the state of the rest of the world, either.
If things would be going too smoothly for you, you'd simply become too comfortable, too complacent, too much at ease
and too indifferent to the state of the world, you wouldn't be moved into action to change something for Me.
If everything was harmony, then you'd probably just stay right where you are and never move into any change or progress
voluntarily.
Whereas, if things are not fine the way they are, then you move into some means to change.
You can at least pray for change or desire change... anything but stagnation and the same old rut.
You never found your "perfect situation" yet with which you would be so comfortable that you wouldn't desire anymore
change.
When things aren't the way you wish for them to be, and it keeps you from being totally satisfied with your situation, that's
the factor that will move you into change.
When you desire change, then things can move forward, and otherwise they won't. That's one reason why things just can't
be perfect until I come.
Change is up ahead inevitably. Things will not always continue as they are. There is one impending change that is
inevitably going to hit everyone, even if they wont live to see the Endtime or My return, and that is death.
The flesh thinks and trusts that all things will continue as they are, thats why people will always continue to work as they
have been for years and decades. No major changes have happened yet, so its unlikely to assume that theyre still going
to happen, so, why make any unnecessary preparations or adaptations? Like the parable of the frog: if you put him in hot
water hell immediately jump out, but if you heat up the water gradually, hell stay inside until the water starts boiling.
So, if circumstances are becoming quite uncomfortable and almost unbearable for you, maybe its because somethings
severely wrong, and going to become worse. Maybe its an indicator that the water is becoming very hot, and its time for
drastic changes, time to jump out, before youre going to boil.
I want you to be aware that changes might be required in the future, and not to be stuck in your present mindset, but
realize that you may have to adapt to times becoming darker and more severe, even darker than the Roman persecution
and the Inquisition!
You may have to radically change tactics in the days to come, if youre going to survive.
Changes are up ahead, and while I do want you to keep that radical spirit, I will need you to manifest it in different ways in
the future!
A new day is ringing in, and its bringing along lots of exciting changes, which means, parting with the old.
Nostalgia is not appropriate, but vigilance and being on the lookout for whatever changes I want to usher in next.
Thats what it means to stay revolutionary.
I want you to be ready at all times, and willing, to make the necessary changes, whenever required.
Be truly radical and stay on your toes, ready to change at a moments notice. You cannot afford to become stagnant and
set in your ways. You need to stay flexible and alive, changeable, moving!
There are great changes coming about that Old Bottles stuck in their pre-set ways wont make it through.
I want to use you for as long as I can, and I need you to be flexible and adaptable in order to ensure that!
Unwillingness and resistance to change is a sign of being an Old Bottle.
Even giving up your idea of what a New Bottle is supposed to look like, can be part of it.
I need you to be radical enough to change! I need you to welcome change, embrace change and to live constant change.
Change means progress the opposite of stagnation and becoming stuck in a rut. In order to keep alive, old things have
got to go, and youve got to change! So, keep moving with the breath of My Spirit, and come, flow with Me!
Its time for changes, and Im trying to introduce them as painlessly as possible, trust Me; but with your tendency to take
the easiest way out, some discomfort is simply inevitable.
Times are changing and requiring different, more mature attitudes, more mature openness in communication, better
organization, and leaving a lot of youthful, if not to say childish traits behind.

35

Even apparently puny, seemingly futile and desperate efforts to change things are better than doing nothing at all in
resignation.
A zero change and zero progress attitude is an attitude that leads to stagnation and death.
You have to have faith in My power to change people from what they are into what theyre supposed to be, just as a
caterpillar is going to change into a butterfly.
Sometimes the quickest way to get more is to let go of the old and open your life for the new that Ive got in store for you.
Things arent going to stay forever as they are. Tough changes are up ahead, and the sooner you get ready for change and
for whats ahead, the better equipped youre going to be.
One of the obstacles that prevent change is the inability to see the need for positive change, progress and improvement.
As Im concerned, and everything is not well, but in dire need of drastic change!
Sometimes things dont change as much as they could because you surrender to lifes circumstances too easily; theyre
still too comfortable for you to really wholeheartedly desire, and thus pray for a change. The Enemy tries to pacify you with
substitutes for the real thing that make you think, Come on, its not all that bad, really! No need to start praying for any
drastic changes here
Thats another way he can lull people to sleep. Its a false sense of contentment, which actually amounts to settling for less
than you could have and get out of life, if you would just be desperate and willing enough to pray for Me to change things.
Sometimes the mere prospect and possibility of change can already bring positive changes in itself.
Sometimes the way to rise above your circumstances is to have the faith to change them. Sometimes rising above requires
more than a change of attitude and the ability not to be touched by the circumstances, but a real, actual change in the
physical.
You can already change a lot by praying. If you havent really prayed yet for a change to happen, you might want to give
that option a try.
Ive been advocating inward changes all along. Changing things starts right here & now with you, right where you are!
Dont wait for anyone to come & save you, Im already right here!
Its a proud and somewhat arrogant attitude to have, that there is nothing and no area at all in which you could be making
changes and progress
See each change as a new challenge for improvement.
Things are going to have to change, because change is the one guaranteed factor of this, My revolution, and has been,
from the beginning.
Hang in there, in other words, means, keep changing!
You mustnt make the mistake of underestimating the power Ive given you to change things, to influence things, even if by
nothing else but your prayers.
Things wont just improve by themselves if you wont do anything about them! If you want things to change for the better,
the one thing not to do is to just stand by passively and watch it all go down the drain.
The wrong attitude to have is, If things arent the way I think they should be, why should I make any effort to change
them? Well, thats perhaps precisely why they are the way they are, so that you make an effort to evoke some kind of
difference. Maybe youre there to make that difference. Maybe thats why youre seeing the way things ought to be, so that
you can help and do what you can in order for them to become that way.
Instead of letting the negative things you observe kill your faith, why dont you use them as an incentive to determine to do
what you can in order to change things for the better? You can change things for the better, I have given you that power!
Now, will you use it?
The world around you will keep changing, your immediate circumstances will change, and everything around you may
develop into something beyond recognition, yet I want you to know that I remain the one Constant in your life that you can
forever rely on.
Being open to change, wanting and desiring change and actively looking for it and for ways to change is precisely the
attitude thats needed: What can I do in order to make more progress, what should I change? etc.
As long as you seek change, keep your eyes open for potential change in your life, as long as you keep looking ahead,
looking for the new, and embracing it when you see it, instead of rejecting it, youre bound to make progress and some
forward movement.
Sometimes an ingredient is missing, and I want you to introduce some necessary changes, try out something new, add a
new factor to your modus operandi

36

Only with the passage of time and more time do people begin to realize that what is truly considered progress is
something often quite different from those things they pursued in their younger years. Values change. Everything
changes.
The times indeed are changing, and all things wont continue as they have been, and My people are the first who must take
note of the changes, if they want to be any help in leading the rest of the sheep and letting them know whats going on.
Your self is the first thing you've got to change in order to change the world and make it better.
Your life without Me was like a desert, but I came into your life and changed it into a pleasant land. Now, your job is to turn
around and - in order to maintain the happiness I have given you in the first place - to change the barren lands of others'
lives into lush green lands also.
Certain experiences can bring about changes in your attitudes, which will enable you to handle situations with renewed
zest and energy, and in different ways.
Changes are good for you. I never take one thing away from you without giving you something better.
Keep your eyes and ears open for changes. Be flexible. Be movable.
You can't just remain the same, you can't just keep what you've got, but you've got to change, upgrade, make progress.
Sometimes the old equipment or modus operandi just won't do anymore, and you'll need to upgrade, and when the time
comes, there's simply no way around it.
You have to deny your old self, the old man, that about which was said, "You are a new creature, yes, but boy, how that old
man likes to pop up again." It's the old man, your carnal man, which is at enmity with God, whom you must deny access to
your system, the place from which you govern your life, like an old operating system that doesn't want to give up its realm
easily, although it has already been replaced by a new and better one.
Of course, the Enemy actively tries to install the old system again, your old ways of doing things, your old habits, or the
old ways of the flesh sometimes in a new disguise.
The old self is all about taking and getting. The new man, the new creature, is all about giving. The old man is negative, the
new man is positive. Once you're born again and you have learned to let Me empty you of all the old things and then fill
you with My new and good things, the input that will cause you to give instead of constantly having you concerned about
getting more, acquiring more, consuming and accumulating, which was the game of the old man, then you can learn to
embrace your new man, My spiritual creation that is you.
Once you have learned to deny your old self, that old selfish man you were, you also have to learn to embrace and
welcome the new creature I want to make you.
Prayer is the most effective thing to do in order to bring about the truly needed changes. Often the truly needed changes
are changes in your own mindsets, attitudes and perception of things, inward changes, changes within yourself, rather
than the other party.
Like this you can become a much more effective agent of change, too, if first of all, you allow Me to change yourself. The
first on the list to change the World is "yourself."
You can change your attitude, your way of seeing things, you can let Me change your heart, and much of your world will
already be changed. You will be much more content and happy with things the way they are, a lot more trusting, that I'm
having My way and that My way is good.
The method ranking no.1 in effectiveness when it comes to bringing about change: prayer.
Don't look so far for the things that need to be changed, but start right here, in your very heart! Allow Me to change you
from the inside, and often you'll find half of the changes you would have liked to be made not even necessary anymore. If
everyone would just allow Me to change them and work on the beam in their own eyes (you see that it's all a matter of
seeing?), then a lot of "splinters" you previously saw in your brothers' eyes would all of a sudden not even really be there
anymore...
What needs to be changed most and first of all is you.
Make each day as if it were the first day of a new period of your life, and it is, because it's a different period than the past.
It's the present: the beginning of the future, where you can do all things differently than you ever did them before.
As long as there's still room in your life for improvement, as long as your life isn't perfect yet, you should always be openly
welcoming change and that wonderful opportunity to learn how to do things differently than in the past, to see things from
a totally new angle, and just let each day be a new learning experience.
To be "transformed by the renewing of your minds" is something you have to experience every day in order to find My
good and acceptable and perfect will for you every day (Rom.12.2). Let Me "reincarnate" in you every day, to make your life
a radical force of change for Me. Don't get stuck in any old mindsets, even if you "already have the truth." Good for you!
But what is the truth that I want to teach you today? What is the lesson, the metanoia, the revelation for this day? This day,
I can make all things new. This day, things will never have to be the same they used to be! This day, I can work in your life
in a way I never have before, if you determine to let Me. This day can be the first day of not only the rest of your life, but of
a brand new life altogether, with brand new prospects, aspects and perspectives, a brand new outlook, brand new
horizons, visions, goals, methods... all depending on how open you are for Me and My changes.

37

Everything can change. The factors can change, the parties involved can change, the cards can change. Those who
formerly were against Me can change and work for Me instead, as it unfortunately works the other way around...
Your friends of yesterday can become your enemies of tomorrow and vice versa. The only thing that changes not and you
can rely on is My being on your side.
Do you really think I can do all things, change all things that need to be changed?
It wouldn't occur to anyone that changing a diaper would be a significant act in the light of Eternity or the coming Kingdom
of God, but if you think again, you'll see that the selfless and humble act of caring for another helpless human being is
very much something that prepares you for it. It's all about copying God and learning to be like Him, and changing diapers
is something He very much does in a spiritual way all the time, when you've gotten yourself into a mess up to your neck,
He always pulls you out of it again, cleans you up and gives you a fresh diaper, right?
God has changed you and cleaned you from your own dirty righteousness and sanctified you with His - simply by your act
of receiving Me, His love-gift and Universal Power-Cleaner...
So, get a change each day, and make sure you run around clean and fresh, bathed in My true righteousness, and not
clinging to your own, old smelly version. You have to continue disposing yourself of your waste and getting clean before
Me and through Me, flushed by My water of the Word, which I abundantly pour forth for you, as much as you need.
Like a loving Father and Mother Who lovingly and smilingly change Their baby's diaper... The Father loves to rid you of
your old waste and make you all new and clean.
Many diapers to change, both physically and spiritually.
We're supposed to change the world. You're not just supposed to moan about the state it's in, you're supposed to do
something to change it!
What have you done today to change the world, to improve it and to make it different from the miserable state you're so
miserable about?
The most dangerous threat to genuine learning is the illusion that you're right, and that there's nothing to change about
your views and attitudes.
You're not going to touch or change anybody's life, unless you can show clearly by your behavior and the light in your
eyes that you're different and truly have something else to offer.
Be a sample of flexibility and openness to change!
I don't leave you clueless. You may be clueless up until the point you ask Me about it, but once you do, everything can
change. In that minute when you come to ask Me anything, everything can change!
Nothing has to stay the same. I've got the power to change and radically alter everything, any situation, mood or
circumstance you may find yourself in, any state of powerlessness or frustration.
Refuse to quit!
I'm talking about quitting to make the effort to make a difference, to change anything.
I bring about those changes in your life to avoid that the same should happen to you that's happening in so many others'
lives: "Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God." (Ps.55:19)
It is the changes that make you revere Me, respect and appreciate Me as the faithful Constant that I am, Who will always
provide you with all you may need, so that you get to the point where you realize that all you need is Me.
"All you need is God."
I'd like you to become more aware of that fact.
It will help you cope with any losses, changes, any crises and drastic turn of events and circumstances.
If you consciously make Me the one remaining Constant in your life, you'll see how easy it will become for you to adapt to
any kind of change.
Sometimes the obvious can be dead wrong.
Its time to try a new thing, to have faith for new steps, and for Me to open new doors and avenues.
The winds of change are blowing, but man's nature is thus that he often ignores them and resists them.
He tries to keep things the way they are, tries to preserve and conserve them, and continue all things as they have been
(2.Peter 3:4).
But My judgments usually came swiftly, when they came, and caused a mighty widening of the eyes of those who did not
discern the signs of the times, and thus it shall be again.
A real leader and world changer is one who makes the best out of the circumstances he finds himself in; he trusts Me for
what I'm doing, knowing that with Me, nothing shall be impossible.
Wishing things were different so that you can do better just won't work. You've got to make the best out of what you've got,
you can do your best to make things better from where you are, and you'll see that that's the way to get ahead, or change
the circumstances. You yourself can change them, either through your prayers or actions or words, but never through
moaning and complaining about them.

The power to change things is in your hands.


You don't like the way things are? Change'em!
Being accepted by others makes you too comfortable about who and what you are already. But I want you to keep
changing, I want you to keep moving and progressing more in My direction.
Change and progress isn't going to happen by watching and looking on and then being disappointed that it won't... Some
things you've got to make happen, and one of the surest ways to make them happen is to start off by praying for them to
happen.
No whining about circumstances accepted! It's time for you to rise above them and look beyond them, to accept the power
I have given you to change them or to act in spite of them!
Be thankful for the lean times, and times of crisis, when there is only a void for Me to fill, and a desperate need for Me to
come in and change things and mend them again.
When you're finding out how much love you're lacking in your life, then you're really finding out how much you've been
lacking in your life. You realize just how empty you are without Me and My Spirit... just how hard and cold and empty it is
inside there, without Me lighting My fire there, and just how badly you need Me to change you and put that new heart
within you that I promised (Ez.36:26).
Its the confrontation with the unpleasant thought that evokes the kind of changes that have been the driving force behind
history, like the spirit of the song "Amazing Grace," that freed the world from slavery.
There are changes coming up that are beyond folks grasp, because all they focus on and deal with is the immediate,
what's right in front of their noses.
Sometimes familiarity between people is the very factor that most hinders anyone from becoming a new creature. They
would like to become one, but the other person won't let them because they continue to see the old man, the person they
used to be, in them.
Sometimes I use a third person to help someone become the new creature they're supposed to be, especially when that
person has the sort of qualities that the one I'm trying to change lacks.
It's the essence of change vibrating in you that lets others know you're alive.
It all depends on how open you are to My input, how adaptable to what I'm bringing into your life...
Life is full of surprises. And often those surprises, those things that turned out so different from the way you expected, are
key factors in making you change.
That's why people can change so drastically in their personalities when they mature.
Experience has taught them that life has this quality of tossing about all their former expectations. Their own little
concepts and perceptions of the world and mindsets simply often don't work out, and they realize they ought to try a
different direction and head down a different track...
Often, the conclusion they come to is, "What do I really know at all?" All their former concepts and truths are being tossed
over a heap, and they realize they've got to start anew and build a different concept, a different life, or a different family, a
different job... Whatever it is they think they need to change.
And it's good. Changes are good for them.
Change of heart is something you need to seek and want and ask for, like Salvation. The requirement is that you want it
and ask for it.
If you think you don't need change, it's as if you think you're already perfect.
What do you think is the purpose of all My instructions to you, of all the exposures of sin and the Enemy's tactics in your
personal life? It's so that you change things, change wrong attitudes and behavior and thought patterns. If you want to
change the world, the first step is to change yourself, or allow Me to change you or help you change.
You should actively seek out the areas in which you need change in your personal life!
Don't let the vicious cycle become a permanent cycle.
Just decide to implement some change in the way things are, the rut and routine of what your life is at present.
You want to change things and change the way they are? You bet you can!
If you realize you need to change, or even only that it wouldn't be a bad idea to change, you can't expect that the mere
realization alone is going to solve all your problems: "Poof, now I'm changed, presto!"
Because then, as soon as the slightest bit goes wrong, you'll wonder, "What happened? Is that what I get for it?" and you
even wonder if your intention to change might be what caused the problem.
Nothing could be further from the truth. It's just that you haven't even seriously begun to change yet. You may think, and
live in the delusion that just because you are now willing to change, the process of changing is already complete, but that
is, of course, nothing more than wishful thinking.
The bulk of the work is still ahead of you, and if you let the first sign of difficulty dissuade you from seeing it through, then
you'll be making it very easy for the Devil.

39

You've got to keep wanting change, keep seeking change and keep asking Me to highlight areas in your life that would be
good to change.
Sometimes it's personal ruts and lack of change which make people grow together in an unhealthy type of codependency,
almost like an addiction to the way things are. But if you determine to change things about you, personally, your habits,
your attitude, your outlook, behavior, and even your appearance, then you make room for new things.
Its your life, and you have not only the liberty and the right, but the duty to make necessary changes in it that I require of
you.
Personal change and change of heart is something that you and you alone have got to be serious about and got to have
the determination to see through.
Keep on learning from your mistakes and keep your focus on the goal, a new, more pleasant you, no matter what it takes to
get there.
Something new is happening, and I want you to pay attention.
I'd like to get your full attention, and the kind of reverence that shows Me that nothing else matters to you than what I want
from you.
I'm trying to get you out of your little ruts and routines in order to bring about something new - a break with the old, and
the beginning of something new. Forget about the former way of doing things, period. Make room for the new.
I like flexibility, adaptability, mobility and availability, readiness to become whatever it is I happen to need at the time.
The last thing I want is for everything to continue as usual. Rut-thinking has never turned anyone on to turn the world
right-side-up for Me! No more "business-as-usual."
There's got to be movement and revolution happening, and in order for that to happen, some things have got to change!
Contemplate and consider your situation in relation to My will for you. It's time for you to stop and find out what it is I want
you to change and do differently.
Believe in change, and invest your time accordingly, not in the ways of this world, which you know are going to change,
but in My eternal and everlasting and unshakable values.
If everything were harmony, then you'd probably just stay right where you are and never move into any change or progress
voluntarily.
Whereas, if things are not fine the way they are, then you move into some means to change.
You can at least pray for change or desire change... anything but stagnation and the same old rut.
You never found your "perfect situation" yet, with which you would be so comfortable that you wouldn't desire anymore
change.
When things aren't the way you wish for them to be, and it keeps you from being totally satisfied with your situation, that's
the factor that will move you into change.
When you desire change, then things can move forward, and otherwise they won't.
Change is up ahead inevitably. Things will not always continue as they are. There is one impending change that is
inevitably going to hit everyone, even if they wont live to see the Endtime or My return, and that is death.
Be open for greater changes rolling in with the future, and prepare for whats to come.
I want you to be aware that changes might be required in the future, and not to be stuck in your present mindset, but
realize that you may have to adapt to times becoming darker and more severe.
You may have to radically change tactics in the days to come, if youre going to survive.
Changes are up ahead, and while I do want you to keep that radical spirit, I will need you to manifest it in different ways in
the future!
A new day is ringing in, and its bringing along lots of exciting changes, which means, parting with the old.
Nostalgia is not appropriate, but vigilance and being on the lookout for whatever changes I want to usher in next.
I want you to be ready at all times, and willing, to make the necessary changes, whenever required.
Be truly radical and stay on your toes, ready to change at a moments notice. You cannot afford to become stagnant and
set in your ways. You need to stay flexible and alive, changeable, moving!
There are great changes coming about that Old Bottles stuck in their pre-set ways wont make it through.
Unwillingness and resistance to change is a sign of being an Old Bottle.
I need you to be radical enough to change! I need you to welcome change, embrace change and to live constant change.
Change means progress the opposite of stagnation and becoming stuck in a rut. In order to keep alive, old things have
got to go, and youve got to change!
Anger is a tough one to crack because it requires a change of attitude.
Its time for changes, and Im trying to introduce them as painlessly as possible, trust Me; but with your tendency to take
the easiest way out, some discomfort is simply inevitable.
Times are changing and requiring different, more mature attitudes, more mature openness in communication, better
organization, and leaving a lot of youthful, if not to say childish traits behind.
While less than unconditional love may not be true love, an attitude of unwillingness to change, or of being too lazy to
even give it a try, isnt exactly the epitome of true love, either.
A zero change and zero progress attitude is an attitude that leads to stagnation and death. It suffocates a relationship.
Some sort of progress and growth meaning change is supposed to be happening in a relationship or marriage; youre
not supposed to stay forever right in the same spot where youve always been.

40

If someone seems to be unwilling to change and to move forward and advance toward the goal of a happy family and a
fulfilled marriage, it can be very frustrating, and kill any incentive to invest more energy into it.
You have to have faith in My power to change people from what they are into what theyre supposed to be, just as a
caterpillar is going to change into a butterfly someday.
It may be humanly impossible for you to love a certain person with their undesirable qualities, but thats where you can
give wings to your earthbound lack of capacities by praying for Me to change that person and commit the matter into My
hands, trusting Me that I can take care of it and change them into something more lovable.
You dont like things and folks the way they are? Change them through prayer! I have given you the power, but if you dont
use it, then it wont be done.
Not praying for them to change them is as if you dont have the faith for Me to change them, youre giving up on them, and
you dont believe theyll ever change, theyre a hopeless case, as far as youre concerned. Thats what I would call giving
up on someone.
You passively and non-expectantly stand by and wait to see if something is going to happen that might change your
attitude toward them, but youre not contributing any power and effort yourself, toward them changing for the better.
If youve done your part, youll have the peace that you did what you could, in order to change it; whereas if you dont,
condemnation will be nagging at you, or at least the doubt of what might have happened if you would have
Sometimes the quickest way to get more is to let go of the old and open your life for the new that Ive got in store for you.
Things arent going to stay forever as they are. Tough changes are up ahead, and the sooner you get ready for change and
for whats ahead, the better equipped youre going to be.
Most folks attitude isnt very conducive to letting Me take the lead There are too many blockages in the spirit, and it
would really take someone to blow a portion of My Spirit through their rusted pipes, in order to radically change that.
Pray for My Spirit to miraculously take over, inspire the key persons and bring about a wind of change and a whole new
atmosphere.
One of the obstacles that prevent change is the inability to see the need for positive change, progress and improvement.
There will always be forces who will resist change.
Sometimes things dont change as much as they could because you surrender to lifes circumstances too easily; theyre
still too comfortable for you to really wholeheartedly desire, and thus pray for a change. The Enemy tries to pacify you with
substitutes for the real thing that make you think, Come on, its not all that bad, really! No need to start praying for any
drastic changes here
Thats another way he can lull people to sleep. Its a false sense of contentment, which actually amounts to settling for less
than you could have and get out of life, if you would just be desperate and willing enough to pray for Me to change things.
You can already change a lot by praying. If you havent really prayed yet for a change to happen, you might want to give
that option a try.
Ive been advocating inward changes all along.
Theres room for lots of innovative changes! Try it! Life can be exciting, if you let it!
Lethargy wants to make a drag out everything, everything that could be loads of fun if youd just change your attitude
about it! So why not give it a try!
Changing things starts right here and now with you, right where you are!
You know My motto: Changes are good for us.
Challenge and change are actually not that far away from each other; so, see each potential change as a new challenge for
improvement.
I need you to change your mindset and prepare and brace yourself for the long haul, because Im going to have to prolong
this class, this lesson, for as long as it takes for you to get it. (IV:6)
Determine to do what you can in order to change things for the better. You can change things for the better, I have given
you that power! Now, will you use it? (IV:7)
Certain things just require consequences and action taken.
Youve got to repent and change your ways. Youve got to move on to a higher level. (IV:9)
Being open to change, wanting and desiring change and actively looking for it and for ways to change is precisely the
attitude thats needed: What can I do in order to make more progress, what should I change? etc.
As long as you seek change, keep your eyes open for potential change in your life, as long as you keep looking ahead,
looking for the new, and embracing it when you see it, instead of rejecting it, youre bound to make progress and some
forward movement. (IV:27)
Values change. Everything changes. (IV:55)

41

The times indeed are changing, and all things wont continue as they have been, and My people are the first who must take
note of the changes, if they want to be any help in leading the rest of the sheep and letting them know whats going on.
(IV:69)

Look at the changes I brought into the official standard of Gods teachings! And things keep changing, the changes
havent stopped there. (IV:93)
Im still trying to shift your faith from the circumstances to Me, the potential Changer of circumstances. Maybe thats a
promise for you to cling to: Behold, I make all things new. In other words, Im not only able to change things for the
better and make them new, but thats what I do; its My profession and what Im best at, so to speak.
Im the New-Maker, the Changer, the Resurrection and the Life. Im the Restorer of old, useless things, even entire lives and
worlds. So, dont despair when you see things developing in an unpleasant direction or going down the drain. Theres
nothing I couldnt salvage. Nothing is beyond hope. (IV:95)
Most people are not pioneers by nature, but theyre comfortable with their old and usual set of rules, the way theyve
known for things to work all along. They dont know Me well enough to recognize Me as a Dynamo of change.
I may not change, but I sure cause things to change.
When Christianity was born, it came into a world that was ruled by an already stagnant empire, and it came as a force of
radical change, and it did change the world of its era. The Devils forces tried to stamp it out for three centuries until they
realized that the only way to truly overcome this dangerous enemy was by joining them and infiltrating them from within,
causing Christianity to become a conservative force itself, instead of the revolutionary force of change and renewal it had
been up until that point.
Its a struggle to stay alive and to keep the flame burning, and to keep revolting, and to remain a force for change, and a
source of life, and not fall into the trap of stagnation and solidification. (IV:96)
A life without Me is an empty life, and you can change their lives from an empty into a full one.
Give Me a chance to change their lives. (IV:108)
Theres nothing you cant change through prayer. Dont like your circumstances? Pray for Me to changeem!

(IV:148)

Change is going to have to happen one way or another.


Ive been advocating inward change, as taking you someplace else wont necessarily solve the situation if you drag the
same inward problems around with you.
On the other hand, sometimes physical changes can be helpful in bringing about inward changes, and if nothing else
works and you simply wont change your attitudes, behavior and mindsets voluntarily, then usually some physical change
is the last resort by creating a new set of circumstances under which youre simply going to have to adapt your behavior.
Because they have no changes, they fear not God (Ps.55:19), in some ways means that, Because they have no outward
changes, they dont have any inward changes.
Fear and respect of Me means obeying My commandments, which means adaptation from the usually originally sinful
behavior to a different one, in other words, an inward change; and outward changes are simply conducive to those inward
changes.
Sometimes in another light the factors that need change are more easily seen, but on the other hand, it could also take a
while until the things that need change would crop up in your life and become recognizable and thus attack-able and
changeable.
Keep praying for changes inward changes most of all.
Changing the world starts with you. (IV:169)
How else can I teach you new lessons, unless I allow new things and situations to occur in your life? - Even if they may not
strike you as favorable. Sometimes all that matters is that theyre a change from the usual something different.
I like whatever is the opposite of conservative and stagnant. I like the alive and moving. (IV:203)
There is no chance for redemption unless the problem and the need for a solution have been recognized. As long as you
think that nothings wrong with you and what youre doing, you dont see the need to change things.
Theres something new to be created, something new to be done, some innovations and changes to be made that will
bring about the progress and the fruit you desire. (IV:207)
You live and learn by experience, finding out just what happens if certain things occur.
Changes are brought about that way, too. You may realize that certain things you may have once considered the end of the
world may not be that grave, after all, so you change your attitude and opinion about them, you overcome your fears of
them, and thus you become more free and independent. (IV:210)
The fundamental difference has always been between those who clung to the old, existing system, and those who were
ready to let it go in favor of the new, which is, in essence, that which I want to bring into the world and into each individual
life that is ready and makes room for it. (IV:235)

42

When everything is just honky-dory and everything flows without much effort, youre more complacent and satisfied with
things as they are, and thus, less determined to change anything. You become more conservative, interested in preserving
things as they are instead of changing them.
So it becomes clear why a less-than-perfect situation becomes preferable to Me.
Routinated people will preserve the routine, the status-quo. Change-oriented people, who are conscious of the need for
change because they look around at whats happening all around them, are not interested in preserving the status quo or
the way things are.
Its one of the Devils tactics: to keep people too busy to look around at what ought to be changed.
Have you been looking around for possibly needed changes and improvement? Or have you just been fine with and
complacent about the current flow of things? What would you do in order to spur your followers on to change? (IV:249)
Change is the very nature of My Revolution, because its what this old, stagnant world most desperately needs.
It may have change plenty on the surface, but underneath its still the same old forces, mottos and attitudes of Dog eat
dog and each his own that have governed it from the beginning.
You think youre going to change the world by availing yourself of conventional means and methods? Think again! (IV:271)
I, the Lord, may not change and remain a firm Constant, but My methods and even rules of the game may be changed at
any time, according to the need and the strategy the Enemy is playing, or even according to My Own judgment of what
would be the best strategy to apply for the moment.
Basically the camp of believers is divided into those who claim that God cannot change His own rules He has laid down for
man, and those who believe that He can, and that nothing is impossible with Him. (IV:326)

43

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Children & Parenting

As a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him. (Ps.103:13)
Out of the mouths of babes & sucklings have I ordained strength, that I might still the enemy & the avenger. I will use the
voices of children to shut up the Enemy. And unless you become like a little child, you shall in no wise enter the Kingdom
of God, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.
If you could see as I see, you would know that those apparent & seeming burdens are one of the greatest blessings,
treasures & privileges ever bestowed upon you.
Children are a vessel of whatever you have the faith to fill them with. They are the incarnation of the verse, According to
your faith be it unto you. If you dont have the faith that they will become a blessing, that Blessed is the man who has his
quiver full of them... Its time you start appreciating those arrows for what they are. Not mere useless, ugly & dirty sticks
that are causing you nothing but trouble, but arrows, which, when combined with the bow of My weaponry & the skill of the
Archers hand, namely Mine, can go further than you ever have or will...
Its another trick of the Enemy, to have deluded folks into thinking that kids are a burden. Open your eyes & look beyond
what you see in the flesh! Look at My unlimited potential of opportunities! Despise them not, but seek Me, for all I can do in
their lives! Suffer little children to come unto Me! Let them come unto Me & dont be of a cold, harsh, cruel, unbelieving
heart, just because you have been disappointed!
Pick them up & take them back into your arms, & try again. Fight for them!
Have a little more faith in Me, that I can do a miracle in their life, that they are My children, and I will lift them up.
Pray for them, and Ill show you what to do. Ask Me what you can do to bring each one back to Me!
Children are an heritage of the Lord, and by rejecting this heritage, selfish people are forfeiting their heritage & their part in
Me. Only the selfish dislike children.
Children are a more important factor than many realize. Theyre the fruit of man, although some have come to accept the
concept that the fruit more worthy of bearing is their little colored papers... The love of money is the root of all evil, and if
you consider money a greater & better fruit to bear than children, then youre on the Devils track, not Mine!
Your children will still be your heritage from Me, even long after the last bill of paper money will have gone down the drain.
Welcome them with arms wide open, love them as I have loved you, and that love will never return unto you void. Even IF
the Enemy gets a hold of them temporarily & twists & warps their minds & turns them against you! Let it be a test of
unconditional love, like I have loved you unconditionally, even when you turned from Me. Forgive them as I have forgiven
you and continue to forgive!
Your children ARE important to Me, and they should definitely be to you! You should do the best you can for them, and
you MUST be faithful in that which is not really the least: your little ones.
Your little ones are of great concern to Me, and you cant really be a good missionary or disciple if youre a lousy father or
mother. So go & learn what this meaneth: I will have mercy, not sacrifice! Whatever sacrifices you may be able to make for
Me as a missionary on some far flung field can't amount to much if you have failed those very ones I have entrusted you
with... Its all a test, My love, all a test, and transporting you across some ocean wont make a great missionary out of you if
you cant even love those in your own back yard. I want you to show My love for them.
They are your mission field... have you watered your little plants? Have you cared for your garden? Have you been
faithfully sowing My seeds into their hearts? Is your sample such that your children would want to assume your life-style?
Who would have thought that that child or that youngster could have turned into a brilliant mind, a shining light & beacon
to many under your influence & tutorship? Who could have suspected that they were wide-open treasure chests, waiting to
be filled with what you had to give them?
Im handing out a crown of great glory to those special few who had the vision, who were faithful, who led My little ones &
guided them by the hand, who had an unselfish love to pour their own lives into those young & brittle vessels, often at the
cost of giving up their own dreams & visions & goals they had for themselves.
Praying is not only an essential part of love a parent should have for their child, but its actually the most important &
effective thing you can and must do!
A baby brings many new burdens in the form of a greater work load. But in My eyes, that babe may be the purpose
youre here for, for what else is life all about but learning to care for someone else, learning to help those who are weaker?
Soon it will turn out to have been the biggest blessing & richest source of rewards in your life you could have ever
dreamed of.
A baby is able to do nothing but trust that his mother will feed him & take care of him. A baby is a picture of perfect trust.
You gotta be a baby to get a taste of that heavenly peace & trust & faith. Just trust like a baby!
You must look into the future. When Abraham was alive on Earth, not many folks knew about him, comparatively speaking.
He had his encounter with the king of Egypt & with maybe a few hundred or thousand others, but none of them were aware
of who he was going to be. What I made him, I brought about through a tiny little baby. Something anyone can do: make

44

love & have a baby. But it was something special I did, just like the Father did the most special thing in all history by
sending down a baby...
Sometimes the whole impact that tiny little baby had, that seemingly insignificant life of faith, is only revealed years,
decades, or even centuries later, as is so often the case with people who are considered saints in the World: they're hardly
ever considered saints during their life-time.
I give you everything so that you give it back to Me. If you receive everything from My hand & thank Me for it & are willing
to give it back to Me every time (like the picture of a parent playing ball with a toddler: the toddler has to be willing to throw
or roll the ball back to the parent, otherwise it won't work...), then you'll eventually find out that this game works, and it's
actually fun, and that there's a sense to all this give & take, even though you (the toddler) may not see it at first...
Children are a factor you can't just ignore. You can't just ignore the little things, the little people and the details, in favor of
a big thing, or potentially big thing.
I'm asking those who say they wish to follow Me, to keep straight their priorities and determine what's most important in
their lives: their carnal (adult) children, or the many lost spiritual children of Mine, who might be lost forever in this life,
just because you were so encumbered about with much care and worry for your physical children, who were My
responsibility to begin with.
You seem to be so afraid that I'm too incapable or heartless to take good care of those I have given you. Can you keep
them from death? Can you keep them from prison, and the paths of darkness they have chosen for themselves in their
lives? No, not by caring for them every waking hour of your life could you keep their spirits from wandering into the depths
of darkness, if that's what their choice is. But I can. IF you will commit them into My hands, which will often mean, first
letting them go out of your own hand & trusting Me for them.
My ways are unlike your ways, and they're mysterious ways, and you don't always comprehend them. But does that mean
that they cannot be good? Does that mean you know better than Me? Does that mean I have failed, I was absent or asleep
when this or that bad thing happened?
What do you know that I might have allowed them to be cast in prison to show you a glimpse of the countless captives in
the prisons of Satan that you will never free? What if I have even allowed someone you know to die to show you a glimpse
of the pain of the millions that are dying out there without the Words of life in your hands, that you and your children are
taking for granted, and some even despise? What if they're out there in poverty, without a job, without money, just for Me
to show you a glimpse of all the countless destitute & poor spiritually, who would long to be blessed with a fraction of the
riches you've got?
What if all those supposedly bad things you see Me allowing to happen to them are in reality good things that draw them
closer to Me, that would wake them up from the error of their ways, if you would not attempt time and time again to protect
them from My chastisements?
That baby may only be a small source of noise & trouble in your life today, eating up your resources today, and making you
wonder what else it could possibly be good for, besides giving you trouble, but a look into the future with the eyes of the
vision that I can give you, of what that baby can become one day, if you'll only rear it with the right kind of attitude, will
give you a completely different outlook.
My dealings with you aren't all that different from your dealings with your children. That's another reason why having
children is such a blessing & one of the major purposes in life: there is hardly a better example of My relationship with
you, hardly any better parallel which explains to you better how I like to interact with you, how much I love you, how I wish
for you to learn to obey Me, etc., than having children.
How much you get from Me is only limited by your own faith.
The rule is simple: ask and it shall be given you. Those are the only conditions. You need to ask. You don't run after your
child all day long & ask, "What is it you'd like now... Do you want this? Do you want that?" The best is, not to spoil them
too much, but let them ask if they want something. You can lead them in a certain direction, as to what the available
options are, but they've got to do the asking themselves... usually.
The Devil is always after the young, and their battles are often more intense than yours & it takes My kind of sensitivity to
tune in to them, to be aware of what's going on with them; to communicate with them about it & to draw them out of
themselves, as a doctor would with a patient, so that you know what specific Word medicine to give them.
Once you hear them out, show genuine interest & an effort to tune in to them, & concern for them, they'll open up & will be
ready for your Word-based solutions, providing you're applying them to your lives yourselves. They'll only accept tried &
proven advice.
Ask Me to help you tune in to them, help you connect your hearts to theirs, to reveal to you what their particular needs are,
to shine a light into the dark area, that question mark in their hearts & minds that parents & grown-ups seldom have a clue
about.
Once they'll be able to tell that you are genuinely concerned about them, their hearts & souls, & willing to sacrifice your
time for them & to change things for their sake, they will also become more willing to listen to you and accept your
solutions wholeheartedly.
Come to Me regularly regarding the particular needs of your children, before problems occur, & thus prevent them from
happening.

You can change everything today, the way you look at them, their way of seeing you, your whole lives & interaction
together. Being open to change is a key factor; being willing to change your sample.
Fewer people recognize the extent to which the Devil is invading their own homes, lives & families.
The younger a person is, the more the flesh "rules" them, and they see things with their carnal minds, not like I do. They
think that physical harm is the worst that can befall them or their child, when in My eyes, the spiritual dangers, which draw
them away from Me, are something to be much more concerned and alarmed about than those dangers of physical harm,
which I often use to draw a person closer to Me.
Abraham was willing to trust Me, that I knew better what was the best concerning his son, that My hands were the place he
was going to be best cared for, even if I asked something as absurd of him as to sacrifice him unto Me. Evidently Abraham
had enough faith to believe that even if Isaac would die, it would be better for him than what could have happened if
Abraham had disobeyed Me.
Now, modern parents are very, very far away from that kind of faith. They think they have to do all that is in their power to
protect their children from any physical harm, danger or abuse, and if necessary, even to protect them from Me. They don't
believe that the best place in the universe to place their child is in My hands, they don't have the faith of Job who said,
"though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him," and much less the faith of Abraham, who practically said, "though He ask me to
slay my only son, yet will I trust in Him."
Today's parents' faith is so weak, they scarcely even know that I exist, much less would they consider that I have anything
to do with the rearing of their child. They consider raising their child the duty I gave them, but in their eyes, that duty does
not include Me, or trusting Me for their children. They want to take it all into their own hands, just like they try to take their
own lives and its substance & insurance into their own hands. They place their trust in money, instead of Me. But
consequently, they also make grave mistakes, since they don't consult or seek Me about any of these things. They often
fail & fall flat on their faces & wind up confused, wondering what on earth they might have done wrong.
Some do apply genuine & sincere love, which cannot fail. But often they forget or don't know that to a child, love spells
t.i.m.e., & while they're working half their lives away in order to ensure their family's physical well-being, they neglect the
spiritual.
You would like to give your children a treat that they can remember as something not boring, but that's because you want
to appeal to their mind gear of "what can I consume today, so that I can register this day as a success of some kind?" It's
that manipulated mind gear of constantly having to receive, unlearning the ability to give or contribute something and
registering that as a success instead.
So, in order to really do them a favor, you should not adjust to their mind gear and bend to their wishes, but you should
instead seek for opportunities for them to learn from you, which will be useful preparation for the future. If you just bend to
their scheme, you'll just spoil them & render them useless & unable to cope with life later on.
Your kids have to learn to appreciate the little things & that they must give in order to receive, otherwise they're going to
be lost later on, unable to contribute anything valuable to others, only selfishly seeking their own pleasure & satisfaction.
They've got to do their part in order to feel truly satisfied in the long run, finding pleasure in giving and contributing their
share to the workload, which is much more lasting and important than the fleeting little pleasures of consumption.
If your child is giving you trials because of stubbornness, disobedience or laziness, you should ask yourself whether
there's a chance that I might want to work on those same areas in your life. If they are causing you trials because you feel
rejected or unwanted by them, you must ask yourself why.
Often, children have a completely wrong concept of their father, quite similar to people's false perception of Me, their
heavenly Father. Ask Me to show you what you can do in such a situation to rectify and perhaps correct their view of
things a bit. But the first step is to get them to communicate.
Ask Me what you can do, how to approach them in order to get them to confide to you what's on their hearts about you,
why they seem to dislike you.
If they give you trials because they prefer to spend their time with their friends to the extent that they hardly come to see
you anymore at all, welcome to the way that I feel in relation to many of My children!
Often it's because someone else fed them negative information about you, similar to the way the Devil tells lies about Me.
Other times it plain & simple selfishness, & they just know that having to face you would only convict them & make them
feel bad about themselves.
There is more truth to the verse that I created you in My own image than meets the eye. In a way, you're all little carbon
copies of Me, just like children often are the "spitting image" of one of their parents...
Sometimes your children feel resentful toward you because they think you neglect them & don't care about them, similar to
the way many people think that I couldn't care less about them or I wouldn't bother with someone as "unimportant," which
is really one of the standard lies the Devil spreads about Me.
Others think badly of you at times, similar to when you're "at war" with Me for allowing "atrocities" to happen to you, when
really, more often than not, it's your own attitude & distance from Me that can be responsible for such times of testing.
Ultimately, fathers are ideal scapegoats. You can blame a lot of things on them that are going wrong, because they didn't
do this or that for you, etc., or they broke this or that promise. That's why one of the best & most effective educational
milestones in life is having kids on your own, because it will ultimately show you that you're not the perfect mom or dad
either, and for once you're able to put yourself in your parents' or even My shoes!
When you come to face it, that's one of the main reasons why kids can often give you trials: it makes you deal with your
own weaknesses, failures, wrong attitudes, selfishnesses & everything that's ugly about yourself that you hadn't even
realized until then.

46

Having children reveals that you're not any better than your own parents at all, when you thought you were light-years
ahead of them. And that process also moves Me a bit closer to you, because all of a sudden you can begin to see why I'm
doing things the way I am, or why I allow this or that to happen... Things start making sense all of a sudden.
So, those trials about being a parent, though the most painful of all they may be, are worth it! As unimportant, trivial or
mundane as dealing with children may seem to some people, raising kids, and all the lessons that go along with it, is
pretty much the epitome of the meaning of life.
While some parents think they're missing out on life because of their kids, missing out on all the fun that singles or
childless couples seem to be having, if you pay attention to what I'm trying to teach you in life, you'll actually notice that
it's those others, who are missing out on a lot.
Parents are leaders. Leaders are always envied, resisted, rebelled against, rejected, opposed & fought against by some
people some of the time, but that's exactly the kind of adversities that make a character strong. So, if you thought your
kids were robbing some of the value of your life, if they're making you feel worthless, like you're no good and you blew it,
think again: they're actually the very factor that will accelerate your maturation, and increase your usefulness to others as
a counselor, comforter, or person to trust & rely on, more than any other factor.
Kids are worth it.
Each of your children is a universe of lessons & experiences to explore, if you're attentive. They're your most dedicated
students & also your best teachers, so, watch out! Pay attention! Don't miss those valuable lessons they're here to teach
you!
I'm teaching you to be a parent with conviction, not to take the (apparently) easier way to let your kids get away with things
you cannot approve of, of letting them have their will against your better knowledge...
Listen to the child in you! It says, "Papa's in control!" It doesn't doubt & criticize Papa the way children do when they get
older & become adolescents. It's that childlike loyalty to "Papa" that makes children so precious in My sight, & the reason
I'm so close to them.
"Tit for tat" thinking is never any less justifiable than in the case of parents with their children. Your children are My jobs &
tasks I have given you, primarily to love them, in spite of anything they might do, even though it may be difficult at times.
Never withdraw your love from them because of anything they might do or fail to do, or you are going to be the one who's
failing Me (and them).
The same way I forgave you, I also expect you to forgive others, especially your children!
Let it teach you to appreciate that unconditional love of Mine, to not take it for granted, to help you see what a precious gift
it is, having to learn to come up with that same kind of forgiveness yourself for your children.
You cannot just give up on them when they're failing you.
They need you to be there for them anyway, to know that you're not giving up on them, to know that you've got something
stronger, a foundation, a rock to stand on that will cause your love for them not to fail.
They test you sometimes to see whether your love for them is really real, or whether you'll give up on them & dump'em in
your mental trash can once they start veering from the path of your expectations of them.
This is My job, My lesson, My challenge for you.
The harder they are to love, the greater the challenge.
Sometimes your children fail you, because you've failed to love them first! Your responsibility is to love them. And if the
task seems to become overwhelming, I can always supply you with more love from My endless reservoirs!
Maybe you didn't invest enough! Maybe you kept investing too much in yourself, your own career, your ambitions, desires,
etc.
And as a result, they don't share your views, your interests, your love for the things you love, because they were what
separated you from them, what distracted you from your responsibility and even your capabilities to love them as you
should have...
It's never too late for love! If you start concentrating & focusing on this goal the way you should, they will be eternally
thankful for it.
Your responsibility is to love them, no matter what; to uphold them in prayer, to not give up on them!
No matter how much you fail or disobey Me, I never give up having hope for you, I never quit having faith in you, I never
stop loving you, and that's what your attitude toward your children should also be.
Look up to Me & learn of Me how to love unconditionally & how to never give up on your children!
I have warned you that children would accuse and betray their parents.
When they have made their decision against you and they hate, resist and reject you, then there isn't much more you can
do for them but to commit them into My hand in prayer. They are your children for a purpose. But it doesn't mean that their
ties to you are stronger or more significant than those with your spiritual Family, those who receive Me and are truly your
brethren and children and parents, those who do the will of the Father, which is primarily to believe in Me, and believe in
those that He sends to be His prophets and voices.
Love them even if they oppose you. But once they cross the limit & make it clear that they've obviously chosen the
opposing side and are against you, when it's clear that they've joined the ranks of those who would destroy you in selfrighteous anger kindled by Satan, then you've got to leave them in My hands.
Your responsibility to love them isn't something you're supposed to do without My help.

47

Back in the days when children were still helping their parents in the fields in order to ensure the entire family's survival,
long before child abuse and child labor were ever an issue, it wouldn't have occurred to children that their parents might
not need their help!
Of course, they needed their help; there was no question and no doubt about it! It just shows how things have been turned
upside down, & how different, how contrary people's mindsets have become to the natural way I ordained for things to be.
Back then, juvenile suicides were virtually unheard of, because there was never a question in their minds whether they
were being needed, wanted or whether there was a purpose for their lives.
Nowadays they think they're "enlightened" and have "progressed" & "evolved" away from those primitive days in which
children were an essential part of their family.
Just as you would find it wonderful if your child would come to you & ask, "Is there anything I can do to help you today?"
& just as much as you would love it if she would develop a more helpful attitude, so, I would be thrilled if I could get you to
develop an attitude that would cause you to look for opportunities, ways & possibilities in which you could be of help in
order to further My cause.
Just as much as you have to be on the ball with her in order to make sure that she does her share & learns to be a happy
helper, so I have to be on the ball with you.
Children are often touchstones & tests I bring into people's lives, of their levels of tolerance & love of fellowman, as all
relatives are, except that you can't quite easily run away from your children. A lot of people do, eventually, but at least
they're having to deal with that "mirror" of their ugly traits they didn't wish to face, for a few years, and a lot depends on
how they deal with that.
Loving your children unconditionally and without partiality, regardless of whether one is more "successful" than the other,
or more "promising" than the other, and regardless of traits you would consider positive or negative, qualities you may like
or dislike or that may even rub you the wrong way, is an important issue in life.
It's part of learning to love like I do, and as the Father loves. It's something that takes time.
It would help you to be more patient with yourself and others if you would remember that when it comes down to it, you're
all just children.
You're all just learning, like kids in school. Some day you're going to put aside childish things and become mature, and
you will see eye to eye. Those who leave My school prematurely are the ones who get tired of My teaching, My curriculum,
they play hookies and want to be their own teachers and masters.
They didn't believe that I would help them to rise above any inability, any weakness that would hinder them to cope with
the lessons and challenges I put before them. They didn't have the faith that My love in them could do the humanly
impossible.
When children become teens, the Devil really attacks them with a lot of doubts, because they want to discover their own
view of things, and don't just want to see things through the glasses they were given by their parents. They want to make
their own picture.
While it's inevitable to grow up, and it's My will for you to become more mature, you should always keep your childlike
faith in Me. The Devil will try to put a lot of thoughts into your head, which look "grown up", but in the end can be quite
silly, and really only have the purpose to destroy faith and trust in Me.
Many are doing silly things and are behaving in silly ways. In some ways it's really better and wiser to stay a child.
Always remember the secret place where I want to meet you every day, where you can always remain a child.
It's hard to bear the rebellion, the disobedience, the defiance... it makes you want to close up and withdraw your love, your
affection, yourself altogether. But that's where you've got to be strong and endure the contradiction of sinners against you
as I did... (Heb.12:3). Even from your children, as I have to endure from My children.
To expect from kids that they'll choose the better way from scratch just isn't realistic. It doesn't make sense to be shaking
your head at their failures, saying, "they ought to know better."
You either narrow their choices in order to reduce the potential harm they can do to themselves, or you realistically expect
(from 6000 years of experience from history) that they're going to make the wrong choices like everybody else. And while
they make their experiences that teach them to do better next time, you still let them know that you love and accept them
anyway, that you pray for them and that you'll be there for them, should they ever need you.
It's hard to stand by and watch how they're screwing up, how they're making the wrong choices, seem to develop likings
for the wrong kind of things, open themselves up to the wrong spirits. But, hey, I've had to do it with you, and I think it's
only fair if you follow in My footsteps and get a little bit of that experience yourself. That's part of the meaning of life and of
maturing: to experience how God feels. And then to learn how to love and forgive the way God does.
It's alright to let them know that you think they're doing the wrong thing. But you cannot just drop them like a hot potato &
forget all about them & write them off in your heart & mind permanently: "That's it. They put themselves on the devil's side.
I give up on them!"
Those experiences, those choices to go the wrong direction temporarily will bring them back to My arms eventually, just as
your strayings did for you. You must let them go and give them the freedom to make their own choices and experiences,
but you must never stop loving them.
You must let go of them in your mind, of your ideas and expectations of what they should do and become in order not to
disappoint you. But you must not let go of them in your heart when it comes to loving them and always accepting them
and letting them know you're there for them... even if you feel rejected by them.

48

What should I say? Most of My children are mad at Me, too, for some reason, because they think I'm not there, that I don't
care, that I always reward all the bad guys and the undeserving with the things My children want, but that I never give
them...
To love them even when they reject you, even when they have strayed from you and turned their backs on you, that is the
art of loving unconditionally, like a true father, whose continuously conveyed message to his children is: "I will always love
you."
You can break the vicious cycle of rejection. Your attitude can be, "I will accept and receive you, even if you reject me. I will
always love you anyway!"
Sometimes years pass before your children show interest in you. Sometimes they never find out what they've been
missing out on until they get over to the other side.
It's pretty tough to resist the temptation of resigning to that fate of "they're just not interested..."
But I know that My children do need Me, even if they may not be aware of it.
The art is to arouse their interest. The art is not to withdraw in resignation when you see that they're not interested. The art
is remembering, "You may not be interested right now, but one day you will, or at least you will wish you had been!"
The art is in conveying to them, lovingly, "you may not be very interested right now, but there are certainly advantages to
showing interest."
Resignation never helps. If you withdraw and remove your own interest in them or any signs of your support of them, if
you stop showing them your love or that you're somehow on their side and behind them, it will usually only push them
further away from you, make them feel more unloved and rejected, and it's simply not conducive to what you would
desire... that they will love you and come back to you.
Sometimes you can do no other but let them go their own way, but it's always better if they know that you still love them,
no matter what, just as I love you and them, too, no matter what.
It wouldn't occur to anyone that changing a diaper would be a significant act in the light of Eternity or the coming Kingdom
of God, but if you think again, you'll see that the selfless and humble act of caring for another helpless human being is
very much something that prepares you for it. It's all about copying God and learning to be like Him, and changing diapers
is something He very much does in a spiritual way all the time, when you've gotten yourself into a mess up to your neck,
He always pulls you out of it again, cleans you up and gives you a fresh diaper, right?
God has changed you and cleaned you from your own dirty righteousness and sanctified you with His - simply by your act
of receiving Me, His love-gift and Universal Power-Cleaner...
So, get a change each day, and make sure you run around clean and fresh, bathed in My true righteousness, and not
clinging to your own, old smelly version. You have to continue disposing yourself of your waste and getting clean before
Me and through Me, flushed by My water of the Word, which I abundantly pour forth for you, as much as you need.
God is like a loving Father and Mother who lovingly and smilingly change their baby's diaper... The Father loves to rid you
of your old waste and make you all new and clean.
I hand you some situations for you to hand them back to Me, the way a father rolls a ball toward his child, expecting him to
roll it back. That's the way the game works. After you've rolled it back to Me by committing the problem to prayer, and I've
done what I can to improve the situation, I'll roll it back to you, and have you do a little bit of what you can.
I bring out that hidden potential in you.
The differences between your children are the factors of which consist a lot of the challenges and lessons in your life: to
learn to handle each of them individually and take them where they're at. There's no standard procedure that works with all
of them. You know basically, what everybody needs is love. But how do you apply that love with each one, individually?
That is the challenge, and what makes life interesting.
Isn't it wonderful, when there's a vacuum, a hunger, a curiosity, a desire to learn and know more coming across from your
children? When there's receptivity, a space to fill instead of fullness, and the notion that they already know and have
arrived? Isn't it great when they know their journey has hardly yet begun and they're open for your guidance and counsel,
and they confide to you what's on their hearts, when they cease to be afraid of you and your opinion, of your judgment,
and they just accept that you love them?
Aren't you being stricter and tougher on your own children, too, than some other System brats? The ones whose behavior
and attitudes you care about are your own children. Likewise, I care about you. What interests Me is your attitude.
Having to face one's own sins and weaknesses in their children is very effective and purging.
Sometimes the greater part of love is the letting go.
You've got to let them go down the path that leads them away from you, when you want them close to you, walking with
you.
This present age is all about God letting His children go and walk their own path, away from Him, in order to bring them
ultimately closer to Him.
Their choices will influence you. But the extent to which you are willing to let theirs influence yours will again influence
their future decisions. If you choose to remain loyal to Me most of all, and refuse to compromise and refuse to settle for

49

any cop-out the Devil may try to lure you into, then they will respect that in the end, and it will influence their final decision,
as to what they will dedicate their lives to.
If they see that you'll easily trade your spiritual birthright, heritage and convictions for any little whim of theirs, only in
order to please them, without checking in with Me, just so that you will have the personal satisfaction you gain from having
made your child happy, then they won't consider your convictions worth very much, nor a path that they'd consider
following.
Soft-hearted parents can sometimes really make a mess of things that they can wind up seriously regretting. You make up
excuses in your head, and reasons for why you should allow this and that and the other, and "it's hard enough for them as
it is without depriving them of this fun and that one..."
As well-meant as leniency may be, the result and the end of that road can be fatal. It's one of the Devil's best counterfeits
of love. In reality, it's only the parent's own desire to be loved, instead of having to deal with a confrontation.
You settle for the immediate reward of your child's gratitude and affection, but will reap hell for it later...
Sometimes, being a parent is just a real tough job, and it's a real tough fight, a downright battle.
True and successful parenting is for warriors, because you must stand up and wield the weapon of truth valiantly and
faithfully, stand true to your convictions at every turn and be willing to take blows for it.
Otherwise, the Enemy himself will conquer you through your child by his disarming techniques. He will tempt you with the
promise of your child's immediate love and affection, in order to let down your guard, give him yet another inch, and
another, like the camel's nose, and he'll threaten you with horrific visions of the loss of your child's love if you dare to be
as "foolish" to be tough and hold up a standard that is true to your inner convictions, the convictions based on the laws
and rules laid down in My Word.
It's easier to build a fence at the edge of the cliff now, than a hospital at the bottom of it later: a firm fence of My Word that
lays down the rules and limitations in their hearts, so that they won't go astray from Me.
Sure, it's work. And you keep hoping, "Oh, maybe everything is going to be alright, and they're not going to fall at all...
Maybe we shouldn't worry so much..." But then, if you have any experience with kids at all, you know that if there's a
danger, and if there's something they're prone to fall into in all their experimenting and trying out the world, they're more
likely to fall into it than not.
Its your duty as parents not to close your eyes to the danger and hope for the best, but to do what you can in order to
keep the dreaded fall from happening.
Youre probably not going to be able to build that fence without any protest from them: "But I don't need any protection!
You're not granting me any fun and freedom! You don't trust me!" etc. And so you're much more prone to taking the risk.
"Oh, maybe we'll be lucky!"
It's true that the fence won't be a 100% safeguard and guarantee that they won't fall down the edge after all, and you figure,
"Well, then what? All that work will have been in vain!" Well the difference will be that you will know that you have done
what you could, and you won't have to hold yourself to blame for what happened.
You've got to do more than just hope everything is going to turn out good. Parenting and shepherding is a tough job, and if
you want the kind of results from this job that you would like, you've got to invest a bit more than just some good hopes
and a few prayers.
The secret of families in the old days was necessity.
The reason why they clung together through thick and thin, no matter to what degree individual interests may have
differed, was that it was necessary for them, in order to survive.
Kids in those days were not just asked timidly, "Oh, and would you mind helping us with the work out on the field today?
That would be so nice!" - They had to, or else their whole family might not have survived the winter, and they might have
starved.
Necessity was the glue that kept them together, and that's precisely the stuff that's being eliminated from today's families
and from society today. People don't need each other anymore.
You cannot just let a child do whatever he or she wants, and whatever they're craving and feel like doing, no matter how
"noble," how "democratic" and how politically correct it may appear in the eyes of today's society!
You want to appear as "correct" in the eyes of your children in this aspect: "I never forced you to do anything you didn't
want to." But the sad answer one day may well be, "Well, perhaps that's precisely what you should have!" "You should
have stopped me from doing my own silly thing, and you should have been more pervasive in your efforts to get me to do
God's will instead!"
I gave young people all their energy not to be wasting it on selfish endeavors, but to invest it in helping others, those who
they ought to show their gratitude to for having raised them, fed them and brought them through life successfully to this
point.
Kids copy the behavior and attitude they see in adults: if their parents only display genuine interest for things connected
with their own little grown-up world, and the matters that they happen to be interested in, and show that they don't really
have a genuine amount of interest in other things, such as "kids' matters," for instance, then it's only natural for children
to adopt that same attitude of "you live in your world and I live in mine."
Often, to their dismay, parents find themselves thus locked out of their children's lives when they reach adolescence, and
they wonder "what happened?"
It takes a lot more time, patience, attention and genuine interest in things that are different and the world of their children,
in order to become good parents, than what most parents come up with.
They behave a lot like adolescent kids themselves, when they are so much into their own world, the world of their own
peers and things that interest them, unable to open their scope to things beyond that.

Parents have to learn how to get onto the level of their kids. Most of the time they're trying to get them up to theirs, and
teach them the things they know, but being a good parent goes both ways: you're not only teaching your child, but you're
learning from him also.
It takes time and trust to tune into such seemingly insignificant matters as a child's world.
You can only learn and find out what your children need, by "stooping" to their level, so to speak, and finding out what
occupies their world.
It's natural that kids want to get away with the maximum amount of freedoms and liberties they possibly can. But it is your
job as parents to set the limits and provide the security of borders that say, "Thus far and not further."
By playing big "Mr. Cool and Liberal" you're taking away the security of the reins from them that pull them back, away from
the danger zones. Those danger zones may look harmless to them, intriguing and enticing, but so does many a way that
leads away from Me.
You're there to offer a restraining hand and voice of wisdom that won't just allow them to slip into that dark and
shimmering, false, black light of the Devil that has lured so many into darkness.
You can help them make the right choice by making it extra hard on them to make the wrong choices.
Spare them some of the pain by making it tougher on them to make the wrong choices.
If you make it hard enough for them to make the wrong choices, then they will think twice about making one when they're
older.
Nowadays parents not only make it too easy for their children to make wrong choices, but they will often even encourage
them to make them, because their own lives have been a path of wrong choices.
Have the guts to be different.
Am I granting you everything you might possibly want? No. I'm giving you all you need, but not all you want, including not
all the liberties you want, because I know it wouldn't be good for you.
I'm a wise parent. I know better what's good for you than you do. A wise parent knows better what's good for their child
than he does, whether he might agree with them or not. That's not only your right, but also your duty as parents.
The Devils secret of success is his false, sugar-candy coated version of "love," love that knows no restraints, and permits
anything, and lets them run right into their own ruin. Sometimes, love consists of the ability to say the word "no."
Love isn't always saying "yes" whenever your child wants something. Love is saying "no" when they want something
that's going to be bad, or even only "2nd best" for them compared to the eternal rewards they're forgoing by not choosing
the very best.
Allowing them to make the wrong choices could not only be detrimental to them, but to all of you.
Things turn out differently than you may have expected, including your children.
If life, including your children, isnt exactly the way youd want it to be, remember that things might not necessarily be all
that much better for you, your character, and your ultimate outcome, if they were different, and that I know best what Im
handing you.
If your child has some qualities or habits that seem to be extremely difficult for you to handle, let life rub them in so that
you can really learn whatever it is I am trying to teach you through them.
Maybe thats precisely why parents get annoyed by their childrens undesirable traits: theyre a reflection of their own, and
their pride usually makes it pretty hard for them to deal with that. Maybe its just My way of saying, See? Thats what
youre doing to Me!
Your children are not only your most attentive students, but also your best teachers.
Through the fact that God repented Himself of the evil He had thought toward His children you read about in the Old
Testament, you can see that even God as perfect as He is actually learns through His children.
There is an actual relationship going on, and relationship always has an impact on both parties.
Its not easy being a parent and watching your child run off to your enemys camp.
Youre shifting from the position of the prodigal son to that of the father a whole different range of experiences.
When youre young, the role of father isnt really that intriguing, that interesting for you, its the most boring role in the
story. But as you grow older and the positions are reversed, and you move from the role of the prodigal son or the older
brother, for that matter to that of being a father yourself, you start seeing things with different eyes.
Your position has moved from that of being one of My prodigal sons to having become the father of prodigal sons and
daughters yourself, and in the case of some of your younger brothers and sisters who are yet more concerned about the
affairs of this world, you have taken on the position of the older brother.
Whats important is that you remember that youve been a prodigal son yourself, and that you can sympathize with the
aspirations and dreams of your own prodigal sons and daughters and brothers and sisters, and dont become selfrighteous toward them, but as forgiving and welcoming them back with open arms as I have been to you.
A teenager is an ideal instrument to let an adult know just how clueless and helpless he really is, for all he may think he
knows.
Heres a situation you just cant deal with in your own wit, your own effort to put two and two together, its hopeless, and
your only hopes in Me. Especially in this day and age when the Enemy is letting loose a legion of toys and temptations to
lure them away from Me.
I am Father of not merely one or two or three prodigal sons and daughters, but of literal millions and millions.

51

I care for you whether youre good or bad, just like you keep feeding your child regardless of whether hes good or bad
Its just some thing parents do: care for their off-spring, regardless. But whether were pleased with our off-spring is
another question. We may love them unconditionally, but were not always necessarily happy about what they do and the
way they act and behave
Millions of fathers are so preoccupied with their careers and accomplishments, that they neglect spending time with the
ones they claim theyre doing it all for. They invest their energies and time in being good providers, but neglect the very
ones they are providing for
The price of being a great accomplisher is often that of a father whose children say, He was never there for me. The
price of whatever you accomplished was your absence from their lives.
View that child not as your child, but say, as a loan from Me: My child that Ive given into your jurisdiction for some time
to see what kind of a job you would do taking care of her and training her in My nurture and admonition.
Maybe the great mistake many make from the beginning is viewing anything or anybody as theirs in the first place.
As My Word says, What have you that you have not received? And if people would apply that to the people theyre living
with as well, maybe they would treat them with a little more respect, too.
Sometimes all young sensitive people need and want is to be loved and belong somewhere.
If they dont really feel that their home and family is where they belong, then of course theyll look someplace else
among their peers and friends, to find that feeling of belonging and kinship.
The pain of having to watch them go the other way and forsake you as Paul put it, having loved this present world, is
an experience that I want you to go through as a sample of how I feel many times.
Its part of obtaining a greater understanding of My mind, the mind of God, and learning to not only see things through My
eyes, but also experiencing them with the Fathers heart. I dont only want you to learn to see and think as I do, but also to
feel and to love as I do, and the only way to achieve that is via the path of suffering and pain that you experience through
these conflicts.
To be forsaken by your own for the sake of the world is a very real experience for Me and the Father to deal with, and We
would like to allow as many as possible to participate and partake in this pain to give them a greater understanding of Our
point of view, and how we feel about it.
It will also teach you how to love like We do: not just giving up on someone when you see that they are turning their backs
on you, but to continue loving them unconditionally in spite of their choices and preferences for the world, even if its very
painful.
You may feel tempted to close your heart up to them and lock them out, but you know you just cant do that. You simply
have to bear the pain And, like the father of the prodigal son, hope and pray that some day they will return to you, and
receive them back with wide open arms, as I have always done with you.
If children have an example of parents who constantly try to dodge the limitations Im putting before them, then its no
wonder theyll wind up trying to do the same whenever they can
Sometimes, when some of your prodigal sons and daughters are on one of their trips into the world, you as parents can
find yourselves tempted to become somewhat prodigal sons and daughters on your own again, too. Be it out of
resignation, or because you feel so strongly attached to them that you want to show you sympathize with them and their
ways, or in defiance of the self-righteousness and lack of love of some older brother
Its a test of your convictions, and whether you will stay true to them and keep Me in the first place in your lives and refuse
to compromise, as well as of your love, to see whether youre going to treat them in a self-righteous manner and become
like the older brother toward them
Some tests serve multiple purposes.
Its also a test of your unity, and to show whether youre going to stay united as parents over the issue, or allow the Enemy
to use this to sow division between you.
I want you to maintain a loving attitude toward them, even if you can see exactly the foolishness & futility of the path
theyve chosen. I want you not to judge them, even as I have not judged you.
Experience will be their best teacher, even as it has been yours.
Youre shaking your head at some of the things they do and wonder, How could they be so stupid? But one way theyre
going to learn better is by making the painful experience of where its not at.
Youre worrying, But what if those experiences arent going to be painful for them, but actually pleasant? Well, thats
where youre going to have to pray that theyre going to make the right kind of experiences, and that I protect them from
the deceptions of the Enemy.
Right now he has that power over them, which is the lure of the unknown. Once they get to know what hes trying to entice
them with, just as Adam and Eve got to know the taste of that forbidden fruit of the knowledge of good & evil, it will have
less power over them, and just as Adam and Eve werent closer to Me before, but after, so will they.
Im not saying that I would have recommended for Adam & Eve to eat of the tree. Its just that basically, its inevitable, and
people are bent on making their own experiences and they figure, the sooner, the better.
After all, nobody wants to miss out on anything life has to offer.

52

Just as it was part of My love for Adam & Eve and all of mankind to allow them to screw up, so its got to be part of
yours.
The efforts to protect your children from evil arent met very favorably at a certain age, and they perceive it as a lack of
love, if you would interfere with what they consider their road to happiness.
The sins of the fathers are often manifested in their offspring in order for them to confront them in flesh and blood and
deal with them face to face, the way I have to deal with you.
Every day is a battle royal between My will for you, that which I want for you, and your own will, similar to the way you
notice that your will for your children doesnt always coincide with their own will and what they want to do. What they want
to do usually varies from what you would like them to do, and its a trial and a challenge for you to try to get them to see
that their time might be better spent in a different way than the activity they choose.
Just as with your children, whom you have to let go and follow their own inclinations up until a certain point, even if its in
a direction that you know is less than the best option, I also have to let you go to find out for yourself where its at, or
where its not at.
Youre wondering sometimes whether your children wouldnt think more highly of you if you would earn more money, but
believe Me that it isnt the amount of money you earn thats going to guarantee serious respect from your kids or a good
relationship with them!
Some of the important lessons in life include coming face to face with some of its ugliness, even if manifested in the
character of your own children.
You learn quickly that way that, as Paul said of himself, I know that in me; that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing.
Once you realize how rotten your kids can turn out, you pretty soon lose any illusions about everything springing forth
from your loins or womb being all that good.
The youth of today are the stars of the show, the rulers of modern culture, to which the real rulers behind the scenes are
trying to get the nations to bend.
They strongly resent cultures in which the parents, and especially the fathers still have the say in the house, and theyre
looking down on them as backwards.
Since the 20th century and the development of the media, along with the public school system, the Devil has found a way
to finally enter just about every household and subvert the weakest link in the chain, and through them obtain control over
the rest of the family.
He undermines the role of the father while at the same time boosting the egos of the children, and stirring up a sense of
responsibility and loyalty in the mothers toward the child, rather than her husband.
Give Me a chance to prove to you that I can be the best weapon, Guardian, Protector and Caretaker of your child you could
ever wish for.
Its not easy to stand accused and tried, permanently judged and criticized by your own off-spring, and a lot of My children
and believers actually do the same and hold grudges against Me.
In training a child, greater and stricter rules are necessary in younger years than when they grow older, more reliable and
responsible.
Every adolescent thinks that they would be doing a better job at being a parent than their own parents did, just as most
people are at least sometimes inclined to think that theyd be doing a better job at playing God than I am, but its
experience the experience of actually having children of their own that teaches them that it may not be as easy as they
thought to raise children.
Raising children and making disciples are two different things. You must love and support and nourish your kids even if
they never choose to be disciples, and trust that I will bring in the disciples by some other means and from some other
place.
They must hear the call for themselves; you cannot implant it in them, or take for granted that theyll hear the same call
you did
The Devil has developed crafty means of luring the young away from the values of their parents Too many temptations to
withstand, and a development of things at a pace too fast that they could accept their parents wisdom and skill, when they
see it failing to cope or compete with all the world can do Too many shiny toys determining what is hip and what is
not (2011:10)
When Ive given you a child to raise or take care of, then its a job I want you to pursue as wholeheartedly as any other job I
would want you to do for Me, and wholeheartedly is really the only way you ever can do any job for Me. If its done halfheartedly, its about the same as a job not done at all
If you want great kids, youve got to be a great parent first of all. (2011:28)

53

How about acquiring some new skills and some new, fresh, lessons on how to deal with young people and children? Its
not like youre never going to need it (2011:85)
If Im using a child to break and remold you and accomplish that which is important to Me, namely bring about the
necessary changes in you; does that surprise you?
Just as I say, He that touches you, touches the apple of My eye, people are very sensitive when it comes to their kids. If
theyre already sensitive to correction themselves, you can assume that theyre not going to respond too favorably to their
kids being corrected by someone else, and instead of welcoming the often needed help, they actually resent it. (2011:104)
Its good for you to develop a heart for those little ones, and its a good sign that you can be touched by them.

(2011:112)

Most people cant believe that their own kind are basically wicked when it all comes down to it; but they especially refuse
to believe that about their own kids. Children, they think, are the epitome of innocence, and they dont believe the likes of
King David who wrote that he was born and raised in sin or, if they do, they figure, maybe he was, but no, not their child.
Most people are even ready to accept that they themselves arent basically good people. But for some reason they
vehemently refuse to accept the fact that their children should in any way be subject to sin, and accordingly fail to deal
with it and reap the results.
The problem is that those little people cant be held to blame because theyve never been taught any different, never really
been shown the difference between right and wrong, mostly due to the erroneous concept of their parents that they simply
cant do no wrong
Parents around the world have been failing to teach their kids the difference between right and wrong by failing to apply
discipline where it would be needed in order to drive home that point. All because the Devil has duped the masses into
thinking that child discipline is something to be deemed politically incorrect. (2011:118)
Its what a parent must instill in their child when they are teaching them to swim or to walk or to ride a bike. One of the
principal messages youll want to convey is, You can do it!
Who knows how far that little bit of encouragement will go in their lives if you actually help them to overcome their fear,
shyness and attitude and feelings of incapability. Teach them that they can do it, just as Im telling you that you can.
Theres no reason to be scared, not even of the one thing people are scared of the most: failure. Believe that you can do it,
and you will. (2011:128)
Just as your daughter doesnt always seem to trust that you her parents know whats better for her, but stubbornly
insists on having things her own way and according to her own strong will, its the normal human tendency to have your
own will strive or at least conflict with Mine.
Thats the kind of patience one has got to have as a parent. In your case, youre both in the situation of a parent and the
shoes of a child, with Me as the Parent. (2011:145)
Like a child who can prove that he can do it on his own, its only natural for humans to want to declare their
independence, wanting to be self-sufficient, and I dont mind that to a certain extent.
Its just that problems are bound to occur when they stubbornly insist on keeping doing things the wrong way.
If you can be in sync with Me, and realize what a blessing that state can be, to be in sync with the mind of the Creator, it
will also be easier for those youre responsible for, to put their minds in sync with yours.
Youll have less trouble with your wife, your children, your students, your co-workers and friends, and maybe youll realize
some day soon that your childrens failure to respect you as you think they should, stemmed from that very problem, that
your mind wasnt always in sync with Mine. (2012:12)
Your present challenges are the hardest and toughest ones youve ever had to face Is that still so surprising? I think Ive
made it abundantly clear that thats the way to grow and make progress. So, why fight it? Its just the way little children
resent the process of growing up, of keeping the rules, of learning that you cant always have things your way (2012:28)
Its a natural fear that children have of their parents or a teacher: asking too much of them, something that is too hard or
too painful for them, something they think they know they cant do.
But think how much more pleased you are when your child or a student takes that step of faith, encouraged by your
prompts, and simply gives it a try and does the thing you challenge them to. (2012:37)
Moody people let lifes circumstances toss them and their emotions around, and theyre totally controlled and manipulated
by them, so that its always a matter of luck as to whether youre dealing with a cheerful, a half-way normal, or a dreadfully
grumpy person.
They dont exert control over their lives themselves, nor do they allow Me to. They grant the power to their circumstances,
and thus, the Enemy can use them as he will
Children especially babies and toddlers are the best example for that: When somethings wrong with their
circumstances, theyre hungry or uncomfortable, they cry. When everythings fine, they dont.
Eventually the baby learns that Moms in control and is always going to pull him out of whatever unpleasant circumstance,
so he cries less and less
The real tragedy in life is when an adult never gets to that point and keeps on and on complaining, no matter how obvious
a waste of time and energy that is. (2012:44)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Choices, Decisions and Consequences

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and
death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life. Deuteronomy 30:19
I never condemn you for taking the easy way out. I love you way too much to condemn you for your weaknesses. However,
the consequences of your choices must always be borne by yourselves.
You have to continue to make the right choices everyday.
In order to make the right choices & make the best out of everyday, youre going to have to remind yourself each day anew
of that you belong to Me.
Some promises are conditional, and their fulfillment depends on your individual choices. Praise Me whenever one of you
has made the right choices toward victory and deliverance, for a lot of work in the spirit was necessary in order to bring
that victory about.
You are choosing between the ways of life and death right now, the way of your own carnal mind, of the flesh, and the way
of My Spirit.
I put before you the ways of life & of death, to choose this day, & according to your faith be it unto you!
If youre going to make the choice for Me, then its going to have to be all-out. You cant ride 2 horses at the same time! You
cannot serve God and Mammon...
Nobodys forcing you to believe or obey My Words, but your happiness depends on it... Will you choose to be happy, or
miserable?
Choose what youre going to believe: your own truth, or Mine...
You either sow good seeds or weed seeds. There is no in-between.
Either you promote Me & My message, or the Enemys.
Whatever doesnt promote Me & My truth, must be promoting something else.
Choices & consequences! You chose to say the wrong things & act the wrong way, to let the wrong spirit take over & rule
your life & being temporarily, & now youre reaping the consequences. If you think thats drastic, look at the much more
drastic results of Adam & Eves choice to listen to the Devil in the Garden & eat of the forbidden fruit: all mankind is still
paying the consequences for that after 6000 years!
Once you make the decision that youre going to obey come what may, I do the rest for you & help you to put it into
practice & into action.
Everyone has the choice whether they're going to let the things I have given them, their boy- or girl-friend, their children,
wife or husband, become their new god, the thing they live for, the thing that all their actions revolve around, or whether
they're going to give it back to Me every day, lay it on the altar & put Me first.
I have set before you the path of life, and the path of your own will, that which seemeth right unto a man, but the end
thereof is destruction. Choosing Me & My way & My will means choosing life. Trying to save your own life & trying to
ensure your own wants will mean the loss of true life.
Make sure that you're among My chosen ones by choosing My path above all others everyday.
The thing to do is to focus on Me & keep your focus on what's up ahead, not the easier, more comfortable option, IF you
want to follow in the footsteps of Abraham, the father of faith, & be part of his heritage, a bearer of the crown reserved for
those who choose My highest will & option.
Let each man & woman choose whom they're going to serve. If it be mammon, then let them serve him, but let them also
be fully aware of the consequences, the price they'll have to pay: the price of slavery, the price of absence of true
happiness which only comes by seeking spiritual fulfillment, (for man is a spirit & can only be fully satisfied by spirit), the
price of the absence of My blessings & protection & of the peace that obedience to Me brings.

55

The choice is, "Do you feed your body and starve your soul"? Especially young people have to make that choice & answer
this question.
Is their body, their mere physical existence & its pleasures really that important to them that they're willing to completely
neglect their souls & spirits for it? Are they so duped, so fascinated by all the pleasures the Devil has to offer, just like
Pinocchio on "Pleasure Island", that they don't realize that Satan is making a spiritual jack-ass out of them?
I want people who choose My way voluntarily, and because they think it's the best. Everybody wants a life-boat when the
ship is already sinking. But who wants to come away from the superficial partying while the ship is still cruising? Who
wants to believe those who say that the ship is going down while everybody's still having so much fun? I want people to
serve Me because they love Me & choose to serve Me above the other, more shiny options, not only out of the fear of My
impending judgments.
It all amounts to a choice between true loyalty and basically pursuing your own way.
I don't like to make decisions for you. I can help you make them, but you have to decide yourself. They're like tests & ways
for Me to find out where you're at, what you're made of & where you stand... The choices you make are what you are. They
make up your testimony, your witness, they become your whole legacy & your life. So, don't dread making them, nor shun
them or try to sneak your way out of them, since they're so important. Enjoy making them, or at least learn to enjoy it.
It's the Enemy, who's trying to get you to dread those choices. He likes to muddle things up, to keep them not so clear, so
nobody quite knows what's going on exactly, in his misty haze of confusion. But I have always provoked people to make
clear choices and decisions with My radical ways, either for Me or against Me, there was no in-between.
It's heartbreaking to see people make the wrong choice, but choice is what it's all about.
It's always a matter of whether you believe you are your own, or whether you believe that since I not only created you, but
have also bought and redeemed you with My blood, you're rightfully Mine. If you accept the fact that your life actually
belongs to Me, you won't make such a big fuss about Me wanting to use you and wanting to employ you for My purposes,
you figure it's a whole lot better to serve Me than the Devil.
History or destiny is constantly being re-written & re-planned & re-shaped by its participants and their decisions. It all
depends on each of you. Each one has to fulfill their part. If any party allows the Enemy to foil the plan, the final victory is
going to have to be brought about by some other means, or even by other players...
Your place as one of My winners is not guaranteed. Each one's place among the winners & final victors is only determined
by their own constant determination, conviction and decision to keep on for Me & Me alone, no matter what, and if
whatever your brother does causes you to stumble or give up, that brother may be held responsible for his mistakes, but
you will be held responsible for your own decision to focus on his faults instead of Me.
You are what you are by the choices & decisions you make every day, every second, minute and hour, and what you will be
is determined by all that. You're not the same you were yesterday because of the decisions you made today.
You're either one step closer towards the goal or one step further away than you were since the last step you took,
depending on the direction in which you took it.
As children of God to whom the Word of God is being revealed, you become as gods, as the Bible says, and your
decisions have greater impact on your future, than the decisions of unbelievers have on theirs, unless they choose to
receive Me and My Word, too.
Your future is still in the making, and determined by your decisions, so, why should I influence them by revelations of
what's going to happen? You might prefer it that way, but that's only because you see as a child sees, not as the Father,
Who sees what's truly good for you.
When there is a choice, choose the true beauty, that which bears My message in it, not that which you think will please
them most.
Will you live as a little "king," reigning for a short time in your own little realm of pride and self-righteousness, judging
everyone by your own laws and rules, and forever thinking you know better than everyone else, including Me, or will you
turn around & walk the humble but truthful and honest & sincere road of a true prince for Me?
Choose which road you're going to follow; the high road or the low road, the path of light or the broadway of darkness, the
way of truth, or the slippery track of lies.
It's a myriad of little, seemingly insignificant choices you're having to make each day, as to who you're going to listen to,
whom are you going to follow, My voice and the whispers of wisdom, or the Devil's roaring cheers, laughter and enticing
songs?
Keep your focus on the spiritual. Make the right choices! Distinguish between the Devil's lures & My whispers, and
between the way the world sees things and My way.
I have given everyone the freedom of choice to either doubt or believe Me.
The temptation is there to think, "What is He doing? That's not right..." And the temptation of self-righteousness, of
thinking you could or would have done better. That choice is there, for everyone, constantly. That's the plan of free choice.

56

It doesn't primarily depend on the training you receive what kind of man you're going to be, but it depends on the choices
you make.
Serving Me is a choice everyday: who are you going to cater to, your own desires or Mine?
Lethargy, selfishness & pleasure will always promote your own ends in your mind, & all that's there to counter them is My
Word & the voice of My Spirit, the anti-flesh, the anti-ego "movement" in the world of your mind, and you have to make
your choices every time which side you're going to actively support by your actions. (Phil.2:21).
I wish for you to make the decision at the beginning of each day that this is going to be a day you're going to choose to
invest in My cause, a day that you're going to live for the sake of the promotion of My Cause & My Kingdom.
I'm teaching you about the often underestimated impact and effect of your personal choices.
My promises are always conditional in some way; you have to keep your part of the deal in order for Me to be able to keep
Mine: if you make the right choices, then all the positive things apply that I've told you. But if you make the wrong choices,
I can take your blessings away from you again just as quickly as you decide to listen to and yield to the voices of the
Enemy!
There comes a point when consequences can no longer be put off.
One needs to make the choice whether what they want is really the truth or merely their own mental concept of Me, the way
they'd like to see Me.
Things change by the decisions people make, that's why it's hard to make accurate predictions & "time tables" regarding
the future. The future is as flexible as people's majesty of choice. Certain events are set in stone, but when and exactly
how they're to come about depends on many little factors, individual decisions, & switch points.
It's the little things that make this kingdom stand... little prayers, & little decisions... little, seemingly insignificant choices.
They will determine the rise & fall of kings and what could have been kings & prophets. They make the difference between
everything and nothing. For the want of the nail... the kingdom lost.
One proud choice to disobey a seemingly minor instruction of the prophet cost Saul his kingdom...
Some people have been sent strong delusion so that they might believe a lie, simply because they did not receive the love
of the truth. They had the chance to receive the truth, but when they rejected it, that was their decision to take the downhill slope.
I have equipped all My sons & daughters of all ages with the "majesty of choice," a constant check in your heart which
determines whether you're willing to give up your own thing to Me and allow Me to be your Boss & Master of your fate, or
not. It's either "yes" or "no" to Me.
There are two paths, two ways for man to choose through life: the carnal way and the path of faith. The result only shows
at the end of the road.
Some matters I leave up to your choices & decisions, and with others, I don't leave you any option (because I know you
wouldn't choose them voluntarily); they're inevitable.
What would you do, where would you go, if you really believed that ALL things were possible to you?
Where do you think you would be the most needed, and what would you do?
Anything is possible! You can go and be and do whatever you want!
Can you make "Thy will be done" the sole sufficient ground for your life, your destiny, your paths & choices in life?
You've got to accept people's choices without self-righteously judging them for them! You've got to respect their majesty
of choice, knowing that I haven't ordained you all to take the same path!
Everything in life depends on choices. It's part of a parent's love to leave their child a choice.
My children choose to let Me have the ultimate choice, it's okay with them if I don't always say "yes" to everything they
want. Whereas those who insist on having their way regardless of Me and what I have to say about it, reap the
consequences.
Everybody's got the majesty of choice that qualifies them to make decisions to either make good of this life or to destroy
it.
If you give someone the truth, he can still decide to receive it or reject it. It's like with any other gift: he may decide to
receive it or reject it. When they reject what you're offering or giving them that's not your fault. It's their decision. It's not
because what you're offering them isn't good. They just don't want it. Their perception of quality, their standard of values
is corrupted.
Anybody who chooses to worship creation (or even worse, the creations of man), over the Creator, will reap the
repercussions of that decision.
There will be differences in the repercussions of your decisions. Not everybody will wind up exactly the same, regardless
of whatever they did...
What can you give to someone who doesn't want anything that's good?
There is such a thing as squandering your crown, your royal heritage. You may still be a son and a welcome member of the
Kingdom, but you forfeited your heirloom. Sometimes when you've gambled & lost it all, the result is actually shockingly

57

simple: it's gone. You've lost it, squandered it, and it's gone. No more heritage, no more part of the kingdom to rule and
reign, because you chose to be your own little king in your own selfish little kingdom before it was due, you wanted it all
right here & now, you wouldn't wait. You were too short-sighted to invest your life in some promised future; you wanted all
the fun, all the comfort right away.
They despised the kingdom and the birthright, the title to the throne for a mess of pottage. They're still sons, but not the
heirs of the promise and blessing.
It's one thing to serve when you're forced to, but it's another thing to really learn to serve voluntarily from the heart,
because you choose to.
It's the choice between going through life with a "gimme, gimme" attitude of consumerism, seeking to enjoy all you can,
and get all the input you can, or laying down your life for others.
My love is unconditional, but whether you're going to be a recipient of that love depends on your choices to receive it and
say "yes" to Me. All things depend on your choices...
It's a matter of choices of listening to and yielding to the right or wrong voices.
You can make the difference between what is and what could be! So much depends on you!
The course of history hinges on single humans and single human decisions and choices.
You have the choice to let something bother you or not.
Satan makes you think you're a "prisoner," a captive of those mistakes & flaws of others, that you're going to have to deal
with & be subjected to for the rest of your life. But I'm saying, "Not really!" Because by simply making the choice that
you're not going to let it affect you or bother or aggravate you, but instead choosing to look at and praise Me for their
positive qualities, you deny those negative qualities to have power over you whatsoever, and it's almost as if they wouldn't
exist!
You can refuse to get aggravated. You can choose to continue to be loving instead, choose to look at the good sides,
choose not to be bothered!
Choose not to be bothered by their flaws, their idiosyncrasies their quirks!
Don't let the faults stand between you and them! Choose not to allow them to!
Choose not to be aggravated by the driving style of others!
Choose not to be bothered by the way some people seem to act extra friendly only in order to get something out of you!
Choose to ignore their tendencies to be more conservative than you in certain aspects, or to be different than you in
whatever aspects!
Choose to accept and love them the way they are and not to be annoyed by it!
You can choose to rise above anything; not only your own weaknesses, but also those of others, simply by not allowing
them to affect you adversely. It's not the same as simply ignoring them; it's a supernatural act, because it requires a
miracle of My love.
The extent to which evil is allowed in the world was gradually determined by the extent to which people accepted it, just as
the amount of good is determined by the extent to which people accept Me and follow My ways. It all depends on people's
choices.
Even though the Enemy is the one who tempts them and seduces them into evil, it's ultimately people's choices to
succumb to those temptations that bring evil into the world.
As long as the Enemy is still around, there will always be things, people or wavelengths you will feel incapable of
becoming one with, and rightly so. After all, you're supposed to be finding out where you belong, and where it's at.
Choosing sides is what it's all about. Some simply choose the wrong side, and it's sad, but you can't let that affect you too
much.
They just settle for the temporal, for the right here & now, for their own "godhood," their round of playing king. Spoiled
children. It's a choice between wanting to be either good children, who can wait for the reward and who are also willing to
do something for them, to make sacrifices, or spoiled children who want to have it all now & can't wait until later. Of
course, in order to enjoy their cake now, they will have to pay the master of the game. He caters to what they want.
Whereas I'm more concerned about what you truly need.
It's a choice between your own desires and inclinations, thinking that what you want is all that matters, or whether you're
going to be able to trust that I know better, and that what you need is what matters, not what you want or think you need.
It's receiving My fullness in exchange for letting go of the world's emptiness, their fake fullness, the counterfeit of
abundance, their "too much of everything."
Some people never climb up any further that "stairway to heaven," after they get saved: they just stay there on that first
step, & can even go downhill from there. The game of free choice doesn't stop there. Although you have decided to receive
Me, it doesn't mean that you're automatically going to continue receiving Me from then on. As you can see with some, they
make the decision afterwards to never open their heart to Me again. The Devil scares them out. All they do is receive the
seed, but they don't allow it to sprout, grow & blossom. They're afraid of letting it fall into the ground and die so that it may
bring forth fruit in them. They instinctively know that some part of them is going to die with it, if they allow that. Their
physical, momentary lives are what matters more to them than eternity.

58

I'm constantly trying to get decisions from each of My children, in order to show, who or what they put their trust in when it
all comes down to it.
All the Enemy can actually do is try to have you believe something that's not true. Oh, he'll mix in some emotions in order
to give more weight to his lies and make them sound more true, but ultimately it all comes down to your personal choice
whether you're going to fall for it or not. And choosing not to is as simple as saying "no."
You just say "yes" to Me, "yes, I believe You, Lord," and "no" to him, that's all.
Do you want Me to change your circumstances? Then let Me know!
It's easier than you think for you to change your circumstances; all it often takes is your choice to want to have them
changed!
When there's a choice and an option for an easier way out, and yet My brides choose the less promising, the less visible
way, the way of faith, of emptiness, the way of foregoing, sacrificing and forsaking, because they know in Me they will find
a much greater happiness, that makes Me so happy.
People usually they won't choose what's good for them. They usually won't choose the fight against evil, they'll choose the
easy way out. They usually won't choose to resist the temptation, but to succumb to it.
To expect from kids that they'll choose the better way from scratch just isn't realistic. It doesn't make sense to be shaking
your head at their failures, saying, "they ought to know better."
You either narrow their choices in order to reduce the potential harm they can do to themselves, or you realistically expect
(from 6000 years of experience from history) that they're going to make the wrong choices like everybody else. And while
they make their experiences that teach them to do better next time, you still let them know that you love and accept them
anyway, that you pray for them and that you'll be there for them, should they ever need you.
That's the kind of unconditional love I'm offering people, and if you want to be My follower, that's what I would expect you
to try to do as well.
It's hard to stand by and watch how they're screwing up, how they're making the wrong choices, seem to develop likings
for the wrong kind of things, open themselves up to the wrong spirits. But, hey, I've had to do it with you, and I think it's
only fair if you follow in My footsteps and get a little bit of that experience yourself. That's part of the meaning of life and of
maturing: to experience how God feels. And then to learn how to love and forgive the way God does.
People, governments, societies... Their structures change from within according to the decisions and choices made on
individual levels as well as corporate... they all affect their stance toward Me, whether they tend to be for Me or against Me.
A lot is up to the personal choices of people. The way they are and what they become depends on their own choices. You
are, basically, what you choose to be and chose to become, and often people simply seem to settle for less than the best.
My part is making the best out of the mess you make out of it all with your choices, and it's quite a challenge. But when
you'll see the final outcome of it all, you will even see My wisdom in having allowed you to make those wrong choices in
the first place.
You cannot indulge in the spirit of the world and drink from My cup at the same time, you must choose which it is you
want.
If to be carnally minded is death, enmity with God, and not being subject to His law of love, and to be spiritually minded is
life and peace, you must choose wisely each day between those two paths I have set before you: the path of life, and the
path of death; the path of the flesh or the path of the Spirit.
Choose the path of life and spirit each day, and run away from all things that would promote the flesh or the things that the
flesh would beckon you to do, the way of death, that is not love and life and spirit.
It's righteousness vs. self-righteousness; faith vs. the faithless, materialistic ways of the world; love vs. selfishness, and
peace vs. the aggressive ways of the world. So, when the Enemy tempts you to be self-righteous, to settle for less than My
best, to be selfish, and with aggressive thoughts, you won't fall for it.
These are choices you're having to make each day between flesh or spirit, the ways of life and the ways of death (Jer.21:8).
You have to choose between My humble way and the proud ways of the world, between giving Me all the glory, and
cashing in some of it yourself and patting yourself on the back.
Being human gives you all the liberties to experience "freedom from Me," to live out the total majesty of freedom of choice.
And those whose hearts truly belong to Me realize that "freedom from Me" isn't freedom at all, but the opposite, that true
freedom lies in belonging to Me.
I cannot protect anyone from their own choices, not even My own children.
You can't blame the Devil for everything. Some things are simply the result of man's sinful nature, the results which he has
brought about by his own choices - which may have been initiated by the Devil's temptations- but they were still,
nonetheless, their own choices.
The circumstances outside the Garden of Eden teach you the consequences, and thus you learn from your mistakes.

59

The majesty of choice is the one thing that can only be affected by prayer within limitations.
It's - some would say, the biggest flaw in My plan, since it leaves such a giant loophole for the Devil to operate. But on the
other hand, what other universal lesson would ever drive home the importance and advantages of yieldedness and
surrender to Me?
Some folks just don't want to be helped, and the best thing you can do for them is let them go and allow Me to teach them
the lessons they need through their experiences.
Their story will be a living monument for all eternity, of where the wrong choices will lead.
Unbelievers refuse to believe in My existence or the existence of the devil because they know too much would be at stake,
if they'd accept that we exist. They know that a decision would be expected of them, who theyll serve, and that if they'd
serve Me, they'd have to oppose him.
But by refusing to acknowledge neither of us, they get around having to deal with the whole issue. They refuse to see the
spirit world altogether in order to avoid having to make the decision what position they're going to take in this war.
You have to keep the spiritual things first. Otherwise, your decision to yield to the calls of the material world instead, may
take you for a detour ride into a spiritual desert.
There are those who make the right choices, and the question is: do you have the determination to become one of them?
When all the false incentives for living don't seem to do the trick anymore, and disappoint you over and over again, why
not make the choice for the right one and the one cause that won't let you down, nor fail to disappoint you?
Every moment you invest in Me, be it through prayer, reading or memorizing or giving out My Word, every minute you
invest in learning more about wielding the weapons of the Spirit World, is a step that takes you closer to the goal of being
ready for what's to come.
It's a choice you have to make nearly constantly: What am I going to invest my time in?
Choosing to walk My path is seldom something that can be done collectively, but is based on individual decisions. You
can't make it for anyone. Every person must make it for themselves.
The experience every human being gleans from their choices is what makes it all so special, and what makes this "Big
Picture" so exciting. What kind of a drama would there have been, if everyone would have been programmed to do good
from the beginning to the end? Not much of a story to tell; in fact, no story at all...
The lessons of the suffering that mankind is going through right now because of their wrong choices, will be there forever.
My Kingdom will be run by those who will have learned to make the right choices, and that should make quite a difference.
The art consists of learning to make the right choices right now, in spite of the manifold temptations and urges that would
beckon you to make the wrong ones.
Will you, by your choices you make each day in your life, prove yourself worthy to be counted among those who will have
earned the privilege of leading My people in a better way in the future? Will you be able to show forth that you have learned
to make the right choices?
People are sick and tired of leaders who keep making selfish choices, or whose motives are selfish and wrong in the first
place, who are subject to the same temptations as they are and fall for them, all the while claiming they're something
better, and that they should have earned themselves a right to lead others, when upon closer inspection there isn't really
much that would qualify them for such a position.
People are getting sick and tired of unrighteous and corrupt leadership, that's why I need My future world leaders to make
choices that will prove that they have learned to do better.
Making the right choices is sort of a rare phenomenon. It's not something that everybody does all the time. People are
much more attuned, in general, to their own desires, wants, inklings and cravings, than to My bidding, and even those who
do want to serve Me, usually prefer to do so on their own terms, within a well respected church or environment.
Sheep always need a little nudge or shove in the right direction.
You're supposed to be helping them to make the right decisions in life that will ensure their happiness, fulfillment and
fruitfulness, as opposed to the way of the flesh, the path they would choose if you just let'em have their own way.
The art is getting people to forsake their own way and convince them that Mine is better! In other words, you're trying to
talk them into accepting My leadership and authority over their lives, and trading in their autonomy, which actually is
nothing but the dictatorship of the flesh, for the rule of My Spirit, and let them experience first hand which one of the two
paths it is that provides the greater joy and happiness.
All I need is people's cooperation to allow Me to make them into the human beings I have ordained and destined them to
be, above and beyond that which they could ever become in the flesh, or if they allow the Enemy to hinder them. All I need
is their will on My side and a little bit of their cooperation, and they'll be able to rise above anything.
You can help them make the right choice by making it extra hard on them to make the wrong choices.
Spare them some of the pain by making it tougher on them to make the wrong choices.
If you make it hard enough for them to make the wrong choices, then they will think twice about making one when they're
older.

60

Nowadays parents not only make it too easy for their children to make wrong choices, but they will often even encourage
them to make them, because their own lives have been a path of wrong choices.
Life is a pathway of choosing what things are there to keep, and what things are there to get rid of.
Obedience brings down My blessing and My Spirit upon you, My Spirit of love, and if there isn't enough love or enough of
My Spirit, then it's not so much so that I've "allowed" it to be so, as it was your own choice not to fulfill My commandment.
Asking Me, "How could You allow us not to obey you?" would be the same as asking, "Why did You allow free choice?"
I may be almighty, but it's no big secret that I have explicitly limited My powers not to interfere with mankind's individual
and personal choices.
I let you walk the path you choose, even if I know that there might be a bitter end attached to it, and Ill be standing there to
catch your fall.
You cannot drop people like a hot potato because they didnt choose your exact same road.
Thats another aspect of the Law of Love: you grant people the right to make their own choices, just as God does. You
wont withdraw from them in resignation when they choose a different path, but you keep on loving them anyway; always
ready to receive them back with arms wide open
While it wouldnt make sense to put much effort into reaching a state of sinless perfection in your own energy, you can
trust in My grace and Salvation power that eventually you will reach that goal. It only took one right choice.
That was the plan from the beginning free choice.
In order to make that Salvation work out in this life and have any affect right here and now, one will eventually have to
realize that its a fight, and choose sides.
Only if they see you unmoved over time by countless storms, will they finally begin to see that youve got something more
lasting than what they traded their happiness for.
If you wont be moved by their wrong choices, it will also mean that your attitude toward them wont be much affected,
your love for them will remain strong and unconditional
You must not see yourself as the victim, but them. Theyre the victims of their own poor choices. So, dont weep for
yourself, but rather weep for them. Their path is a chosen path of pain and sorrow, not yours.
You have to face the consequences of your choices and actions. The consequences are there to teach you to think and
counsel harder before you make choices.
you become the way you are by means of your own choices. You do the things you do because you choose to do them, not
because I make you do them.
Theres a lot more free choice involved here than what people usually give Me credit for. You do what you choose to do,
not what I make you do or have predestined you to.
You either believe that people have free choice, or you dont. People are becoming skeptical of the concept of free choice,
because theyre seeing theyre not really making that much of a difference with whom they choose for a leader. A lot of it
seems to be a fake, the illusion of free choice. And while that may apply to the System, it certainly does not with Me, and
some of those fatalists will get a surprise when theyll find out how much actually depended on them, their choices, their
words, their actions.
Its sort of a lesser evil when having to choose between the pain of dealing with ones own sins and short-comings, and
the easier option of inflicting part of the pain on somebody else by blaming them for their misery.
It isnt happening on a conscious level, but its one of the Enemys carefully cloaked processes and maneuvers in the dark.
Its one of the subtle machineries of the Devil that teaches his weaker clients to help them get the better part of the deal
against the odds. Thats his way of playing Robin Hood and the champion of the weak and downtrodden. He teaches them
how to cheat and deceive their way through life.
They could have chosen not to. They could have chosen to refuse the Devils hook, line and sinker. They could have
chosen the great peace which they have that love My law.
They can cling to that satisfaction that playing the victim gives them, if thats what they choose and want. Or they can
choose to forgive, they can choose peace.
Everybody has to make their own experiences in the world that will make them determine whether they feel at home in it,
or whether theyll refuse to settle for what it has got to offer them, and seek a better place instead
When somebodys mind is made up about something you have relatively little chance to change anything about that, and
you just have to let them go through the consequences of their choices.
Poor choices and their results are often the only thing that will effectively change peoples minds for the better in the long
run. You cannot save them from making those any more than I was able to save you from yours.

61

When man separated himself from Me by his choices, he brought conditions upon himself and his world that make him
quite different from My nature and the nature of the eternal. But all things will be reconciled and reunified with Me.
Talking about a unified theory. Theories wont be necessary anymore then. It will be the unified facts of how everything
was created, planned and executed by Someone Who left very little up to random chance, but rather to the individual
choices of man to bring upon himself either a blessing or a curse.
Creation is based somewhat on the same system as computers 1s and 0s, yeses and nos on a constant basis, toward
Me, their Creator.
The right choice to make is to accept Me, to integrate and include Me, and to acknowledge Me, to seek Me in My Creation.
The wrong choice is to ignore Me, deny Me, refuse to accept that Im there, and thus exclude Me from the equation and Big
Picture. The right choices lead to true wisdom and insight and knowledge, the others to foolishness professing itself to be
wise.
You have to cherish and value your spiritual position and guard it, and determine that you wont allow the Enemy to throw
you off, come what may. You will certainly not allow him to use something insignificant to throw you off.
You must consider, Is this worth getting grumpy over? Is this worth getting upset about and trading my position in the
victory for, and my position on the Lords wavelength?
And, of course, the wholehearted answer must be, No way!
You dont have to let the darkness in. You can make a choice to fight and refuse to let it in and focus on the light instead,
and decide that youre going to cling to a positive attitude instead!
Once anyone has made that decision and they reject Me and they show it openly by resisting you, then Ive shown and told
you what to do: you leave their place and shake off the dust from your feet, and your peace will return unto you.
Once they made the decision where they reject you and what youve got to say and oppose you, then youve got no
obligations toward them, as far as Im concerned, because they have chosen the Enemy to be master over their lives
instead of Me.
People blame Me for the chaotic state their world is in when it was really and always have been their own choices that were
responsible for the chaos and the mess.
You want to become gods? Well, go ahead then, and lets all find out what will be the outcome of this. Go ahead and
reshape the world according to your own ideas, and make the best of it you know how, and lets all see what will come out
of it.
Im basically leaving the world under your control. Yours and the Devils, that is, since the majority of people seem to
prefer his leadership over Mine.
All that really matters is whose promises you believe and put your faith in. Is it the Devils, your scientists, your
politicians or Mine? They all may be promising you a glorious future, but since the things they say all differ from each
other, only one can speak the truth, and only one of those glorious futures is actually going to happen.
Who will have invested his faith in the right version or promises, and thus will have built their lives on the right and true
foundation will be revealed in the end.
Until then it may seem as though they are the winners and you are the losers, but momentary appearances can be
deceiving and the final result may be quite surprising.
If they want to base their lives on appearances, instead of thoroughly investigating what really is truth, then thats their
decision.
It has always been easier to trust in what you can see. But whether it will turn out to be the more rewarding option remains
yet to be seen.
The school of life is about finding out who will be the smart guys who wont fall into the same old traps over and over
again. Who are the ones who will wake up to the fact that this is not where its at and the way things are supposed to be,
and will start looking for an alternative and a way out
Sometimes its simply the determination to advance to the next step of your development and say of your old crutch, I
dont need this anymore. You decide youre going to go on to the next level and hang on to Me and spiritual things for
satisfaction and fulfillment instead of those carnal counterfeits and mere shadows of the Real Thing.
The more you realize that this is definitely not the path you want to choose for your life, the more you will be on the
lookout for My alternative, and as I have promised, they that seek Me, the Real Thing, with their whole hearts, will also find
Me!
The true alternative is a living relationship with Me, with real, living communication, and letting Me guide you into
discerning between what is right and wrong in each situation in your life, and, of course, choosing the right option once
confronted with it.

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Churchianity

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
(Rev.3:15)
You should be shedding tears in desperate prayer for all the heartless injustices, cruelties & torturous crimes that are
being committed by the wicked every second of every hour of every day, and pray like a house on fire that you wont be
found guilty of their sins, too, by participating in their delicacies they derive out of other peoples pain.
Sure, you are saved, all your sins are forgiven. But all the ones who will be lost because you were too busy entertaining
yourself instead of doing what you could to get them saved will one day make you cry. Why do you think I have to wipe
away so many tears from My childrens eyes? Because they fail to weep & pray in intercessory prayer for them now.
Because they fail to sow the seeds in weeping now. Because, if they would, joy would come in the morning, but great will
be the lamentation of those who fail to sow My seeds in this life, when this is what I would have wanted them to do. Great
will be the sorrow of those who fail Me and the lost who are searching for Me, when it would have been in their ability to
save them, but they would not, simply because they were too busy entertaining themselves... Can you see the atrocity of
this? Be not deceived into thinking that I will judge unrighteous judgment, for this is what My enemies on Earth say about
Me: "What kind of a God is this, who rewards his rich, spoiled, pampered & indulgent children with heaven for exploiting
the poor? For refusing to share their wealth? For not only standing by in cold indifference while others suffer & die, but
even being the perpetrators & cause of their suffering, more often than not?" Can you blame them for rejecting Me &
refusing to believe in the God of such a distorted picture of what is being portrayed as Christianity? Can you imagine how
much that hurts Me? Can you imagine how sick with anguish it makes Me? No, you cannot.
So, dont be deceived by any means, into thinking, that all those lukewarm, selfish, self-indulgent so-called Christians will
go unpunished, and woe unto you, if you are going to be counted among them. Being spewed out of My mouth isnt going
to be as glorious as they may picture heaven to be. Living in everlasting shame & contempt, while those they abused &
neglected will find comfort in My bosom wont be all that glorious, either. Only My faithful ones, those who truly give their
lives in order for others to find Me will be rewarded richly.
The others will even lose that which they think they have. Poor, destitute & naked, not rich & adorned, as she pictures
herself to be. Oh, how Satan has deceived her into perceiving herself as a queen. His magic, fake mirror of false images
distorts grossly the reality of the way things really are & the way I see things. Soon that glass will be shattered, and there
will be great wondering, amazement, and the shock will be so great that there even will be half an hour of silence in all of
heaven. The awe of her exposure will be so great... nothing will move... only silence. Imagine the whole universe staring at
you for half an hour, pondering the shame you have brought upon My name by your bad behavior: This will be the fate of
the Laodecian church. The lukewarm Christians. Oh, be not counted among them, but get on fire & burn your life, like a
candle at both ends, & give, give your life unto them for Me! Please! I beg you, for your own sakes, for lost souls sakes, for
the sake of their eternal future and yours:
Choose ye THIS DAY whom ye shall serve, for soon it will be too late. As certain and as truly as My name is the name in
which every knee shall bow, as truly as My throne is established in righteous judgment, I swear by My holy name: I will not
let these injustices committed by My wayward children go unpunished. There will be no excuse. There will be no weaseling
out of the responsibility & the guilt by lamenting, "Oh, but we were deceived! Satan has sent his emissaries to join our
ranks & has deceived us. He has lured us away from the true path with his riches, with his splendor, with his lies &
temptations!" Nay, but I will say unto them: "But I have sent you My prophets, to whom you would not listen! I have given
you My Words, but you would not hear. You hardened your hearts every time You heard My voice in your conscience, you
chose the easy way, the selfish way every time.
Oh, yes, you gave a little bit of your money to your church, and you will be rewarded if this money was used to support
missionaries who helped others to find Me. But what is that, compared to what you could have given, compared to what
you could have done? You called Me, Lord, Lord... every Sunday in your church, but I wasnt your Lord. I was not your
God. The god you trusted in was the god of this world, the god of money, the god of mammon, the gods of pleasure, your
own bellies, your own luxuries. For if I would have been your God, you would have sacrificed these things unto Me, you
would have laid them on the altar, in order to help others to find Me, those, who knew Me not, those who were waiting,
starving & freezing for My Word, for My gospel from your hands. Instead you tried to pay Me off with a little here & a little
there... just enough to stop your conscience from burning like a prick in your sides. Just enough to deceive you into
thinking that you were so good, so much better than those godless, ignorant, uncultivated non-Christians, those heathen,
those pagans. YOU have turned My creation into hell; they didnt! You have exploited the poorer nations of this Earth; they
didnt. You professed to have known better, claimed to possess the exclusive truth; they didnt. Well, it turns out you
missed an important part of that simple truth of Mine: Love!"
Most church Christians are so suspicious of the Devil in every spiritual matter, they reject the gifts of the Spirit altogether!
Nothing makes you as sick of lukewarmness, as being handed or fed a good mouthful of it yourself by someone else, and I
sure hope its gonna make you hate it!
Its a problem when people read the Word but only pick out whatever they like or appeals to them & sort of ignore the
heavy-duty stuff, or say that wont apply to them.
There comes a time in every life, when they see where they erred & failed to see the truth.
In the end, there are going to be 2 in the field, one with My true anointing, one without...

When I return, there will be shiners & shamers. Keep in mind what youll want to be on that day, & keep working toward
that goal: becoming a shiner for Me. Its nothing you can work up in the flesh, but it can be achieved by faithfulness to Me.
I dont want you to be part of that System, or established to the point where you think you have to watch out for your
reputation. I want you to burn free & be liberated from clichs of prestige & worrying about being accepted. Its
lukewarmness & man-pleasing & everything I abhor.
One of the greatest proofs of your love you can give Me is to share Me with others. Not like the jealous, prudish, selfish &
possessive church Christians who hardly ever mention Me, much less share Me with anyone else. No wonder they dont
believe in sharing. They dont even share their faith.
The churches get people saved & then tellem they can stay living right where they are, the same way they always have,
just try to be a good sample...
Most of the churches antagonize you, reject you and despise you. But why is that? Is it because they are more righteous
than you? They may think that, but that's only because they are deluded & deceived. In reality, they are the fornicators &
adulterers, whoring and compromising with the System.
They did not "come out from among them," nor did they ever "forsake all that they have" so that they could be My disciple,
nor do they know what this means, that "all who will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution"! To whom do those
Scriptures apply? Who are the just that live by faith? Who are the called out ones, hated by all nations for My name's sake?
Even My very own people, if they don't stay close to Me, can stumble, and become the very opposite of what they were
supposed to be, and become My very enemies!
Anyone who doesn't stay close to Me can turn into an old bottle, and they can move from the arena into the grandstands,
turn from martyr into persecutor, if they don't watch out!
As soon as any person or group of "chosen ones" came to the conclusion that they were anything of themselves, they lost
it, and became just one more curse instead of a blessing.
Don't allow yourself to become a persecutor, instead of the persecuted. The line between potentially becoming either a
Cain or an Abel is very thin.
People who take it for granted that naturally, they're the "righteous ones" aren't aware of the danger of how easily they can
fall and turn into My very enemies if they don't watch out. That's why so many of My people wind up doing more harm than
good at times, because they simply don't stay desperate enough to make sure that whatever they do is because of Me and
through Me, instead of some of their own holiness and righteousness or goodness that they think they have.
The danger comes in when you think of yourself or your particular group as the only right ones and righteous ones. Then
I'll often allow you to make some mistake or blunder to remind you it's not you, but I that makes you anything, and I may
even allow somebody else to walk around with the anointing that had been ordained for you, just to show you it's still Mine
to give, to whoever I choose, yea, even to My former enemies, if need be. Look at Paul - a classic case of persecutor
turning into the persecuted, which, of course, is the version that's more to be desired than the other way around!
I want to give My disciples a life lived in fullness and abundance, but some Christians tend to take this to the extreme & go
overboard on this & actually tend towar downright covetousness & greed. That was not what I had meant, and the church
will have to pay for this by destroying its name - besmirching My name and the name of Christianity and branding Me and
My followers in general as something that I am not, never was, and certainly didn't intend for My church to be.
Sandcastle Christians build their houses on the shifting sands of disobedience.
Show the world a house built on the rock of actually doing what I say!
A lot of people are allowing the Devil to steal away from them many an opportunity for them to see & glorify Me in things
that they are afraid of & think are evil, and many an opportunity to use these things as a witness. Some people's concept &
discernment of what is good & what is evil is slightly distorted.
in My eyes, the reluctance of wealthy Christians to share their wealth with the poorer nations of the world, & to really make
a difference, is more evil than what some of them point their finger at & shout about. They who know their Father's will and
did it not will be beaten with more stripes than those who knew it not.
Christianity only makes sense if you put Me in the middle of it as the sum of all hope for any positive outcome of the whole
thing. Christians are generally lacking to make the difference they could & should, which is sad, and a lot of it is due to
compromise with the world.
Just because someone isn't a Christian doesn't necessarily mean they're further away from the truth than some Christians.
Just because someone isn't a Christian doesn't mean one cannot be a fighter for truth and for a just and righteous cause,
against the evil in this world, much of which is perpetrated by those who claim to know Me. But if they would read and
believe My Word & take it to heart, they would know that just claiming to know Me doesn't do the trick, but the way they
treat each of the least of My brethren determines how much of a Christian they really are.
Don't worry about accomplishment & achievement. What's more important, is - as I told My disciples - that your
righteousness exceeds that of the Scribes & Pharisees, that your sample is a better one than that of phony & hypocritical
church Christians, that your faith is something more real & living than false & dead religion!

64

You can only be a prophet who calls out others to "come out from among them," if you have been "called out" yourself,
first, and have obeyed the call, and have exited from the whorish System. It's like what I told My followers about the
Pharisees: what they tell you, this do, but don't do as they do, for they may say it, but they do it not!
You can't really follow them, because there is nowhere to follow.
Which body do you want to follow: the dying corpse of the old pharisaical church, or the vibrant, new & young body of My
called-out ones?
It's the act of receiving and drinking in that makes a true believer out of you, an act way too difficult for someone too full of
themselves to sit still and listen, too self-sufficient to be needing anybody's advice or help.
They're the type of believers like Cain, who get angry at anyone insinuating that they can't do it on their own. They've got
to do it their way. They make their sacrifices to Me in their own way, they sacrifice what they deem worthy of being a
sacrifice: not that which I would really like, but some self-created effort of their own hand, some product of their hands and
sweat they can take pride in and show off before Me and the whole world: "behold what I have accomplished!"
They want admiration for what they've already accomplished, they want the praise & applause of the people, like Saul,
instead of obeying & hearkening. They already know it all, so "What could that old prophet tell me, that I don't already
know, anyway?"
There have - throughout history - none been so blind and deceived as those who thought themselves to be enlightened
and able to see. After all, those who claim to have already found the truth are the ones who oppose & try to drown out My
true voices, not those who are still seeking & groping around in the dark.
It's much more comfortable for them to concoct their own "truth." It makes a lot more sense to them than My humiliating
truth, which always says the exact opposite of what their pride and their flesh, their carnal mind tells them.
Those who refuse to drink in, to wholeheartedly receive My truth, are they who have heard My Word & received the seed,
but then the Enemy distorts it in their mind & turns it into some gospel of their own, one which won't oppose him, but will
live in peaceful coexistence with all he stands for, and thus, will always sooner or later begin to work against Me.
You have a higher calling than just to tickle other believers' ears & make them feel more comfy with their compromising
existence of acceptance of half-truths & deceptions & following the Whore of false religion and spirituality down to
destruction.
Even though they claim to know My name, and they claim to know Me and claim that they're part of Me, they are not, for
they have despised and rejected Me for this world. They've gone the way of compromise, the way of the flesh. They have
not had eyes for the spirit, all they could see was the carnal, they never clung to My Word, the Source of life.
They find themselves fighting against God, and haven't become aware of it. They think they're in the right. Their own cause
is all the cause they need, their own right, their own truth the only one that counts to them.
The majority of American Christians are Americans primarily, and Christians secondarily, which isn't being much of a
Christian at all, because either you follow in My footsteps as a pilgrim and stranger in this world, or you might as well
forget about the whole thing and stop pretending you're something you're not. Being proud of your country and at the
same time professing to be a Christian is hypocrisy, because it's like claiming to be fighting for one side while advertising
the Enemy at the same time. It's treason.
If you're a nationalist, you worship the flesh, you're bound to carnal ties, and you've been duped by the Enemy to fall into
the pride of life, instead of having been freed by My truth and My Spirit to be someone who is not of this world, and You
can't be a true and sincere Christian and a flag-waving nationalist of any of the wicked nations of this world at the same
time! You're either advertising this world, or Me, the Alternative to this world, you can't do both. You can't advertise God
and Mammon. You can't serve 2 masters.
Some are just not interested in finding out what I have to say to shut up long enough to listen. The "god" they
communicate with is just an extension of their egos, something they wish for Me to be. That happens to a lot of selfrighteous people. That's why I said in My Word that I would have to say to a lot of people who claim to have been doing
this and that in My name, "I never knew you." They never knew Me, and I never knew them. All they thought they knew was
a figment of their imaginations, an extension of their own desires & what they figured I ought to be. Very few - in
comparison - actually really want to know Me. I'm too scary, too strange, too different for most of them. That's why there
are millions of Christians who reject the true prophets. They just use Me as a label they associate with, but they don't really
have much of a clue Who I really am.
Its hard to trust sometimes, that a God of Love would ask you to do such irrational things, or would use such
unconventional methods, but thats why only those with great faith can really trust Me - and My Word, for that matter. Some
people consider the Abraham/Isaac episode an atrocity that doesnt really belong in My Word. They didnt really get the
point. But when you can trust Me for anything, thats what Id call faith.
Having asked him to make that sacrifice, and his willingness to follow through with it, altered everything and made him see
clearly, and put everything in the proper perspective. These manifestations of faith are there to bring home a point. And by
the result you can tell that it was My voice and My hand in it, after all, no matter whether all the voices in the world are
going to pipe up, It was wrong of God to ask that of you or to tell you that! Or, that was not the voice of God at all!, just
because it doesnt make sense to them or eludes the capacity of their faith.
The Enemy is not fighting them as hard, because theyre not nearly as big a threat to his cause as any of you are, who
embrace My full truth. The Enemy knows why he can freely let them loose on the world, because theyre not only working
for Me and My cause, but unknowingly also for his, which is what happens to a good many sincere Christians.

65

The whole church system is still based on the sermon principle, while Im building My true Church on the principle of
becoming a living sample of the truth, just as I was a living sample, and all My true saints were samples of My love and
truth, more than just sermons.
There are enough teachers, preachers and speakers delivering sermons, but way too few guides who truly show the way
by walking therein themselves first...
I'm what you've been looking for, not any group of people, not any church. But when some people find Me, they don't
fully embrace Me... They want Me on a safe, mental pedestal where they think they've "got Me" where they want Me, but I
won't get too close to do anything beyond their control...
They want to be in control... exactly what Satan promised in return for disobedience: "Ye shall be as gods." In other words:
"You can be in control yourselves! You don't have to follow and obey this God that you don't really know what He's up
to..."
When it comes down to it they really only want to do their own thing. But they figure they better make some kind of a deal
with Me, some peace treaty, in which they pretend to be on My side, so that I won't do anything that might cross their
plans, and so that they can have somebody to blame when their plans don't work out.
Some people take themselves too seriously, especially in the field of religious service. Pride has a heyday there, which is
why envy and jealousy - spiritual jealousy - are rampant in the churches, and why I can often rather use simple-minded
folks who are not so stuck on themselves.
The sterile, pseudo-spiritual Pharisaical church Christians think that by staying out of the dirt and never stooping to the
depths of getting your hands dirty with some mundane task, much less any such dirty affairs as sex, they stay spiritually
clean. What they don't realize is that the worst rot possible is coming from within themselves. They may keep covering up
their mess with an outer garment of apparent cleanliness, distract from their own spiritual stench by constantly pointing at
the sins of others, or even making sins out of acts which are none in My eyes, but they can't deceive Me, nor anyone else
who sees things as they are in the Spirit. They're like naughty children who constantly run away from their parents when
Mama wants to put on a fresh diaper.
Covering up and pretending the mess isn't there and pointing fingers at others won't help. Cleaning up is what life is
largely all about.
Of how much guilt do you believe My sacrifice was capable of cleansing you?
Some folks prefer to still take some of the load on their own shoulders.
They insist on carrying part of the burden themselves, they are addicted to the flesh to the extent that they need and want
to do part of the works in their own energy and strength.
They cling to the lies of the Devil that they're not good enough, that they must first obtain some level of goodness before
they are worthy of receiving all My gifts to the full.
But it's not goodness that would "earn" them My blessings, but faith. Faith and humility. The faith to receive, and the
humility to accept it, that there's nothing you can do on your own to make you any more worthy.
They cling to the letter of the law, rather than to the spirit. They're living on the fringes, and not from the true center. They
don't allow Me to become their True Center. All they want is the fringes, the skeleton, the frame that holds the construction
together: a form of godliness without the power thereof. A facade, really. That's what the church system is all about: pretty
buildings that look nice and fancy on the outside, "pretty" Christians that look nice and "clean" and "proper" on the
outside, but you dare not look inside.
They're the type of people who made sure the Romans had Me crucified. Without ever getting their own hands dirty, yet
they were the ones guilty of My blood. Pilate made it pretty plain to them that he refused to take that responsibility when he
washed his hands before them, and he was more righteous in My eyes than they were.
This is hard for you to grasp, but there are unbelievers who are more righteous in My eyes than some Christians.
It is the true law, the "moral law" that's written in every man's heart; the law of love, and the degree to which every man
obeys it, that determines how righteous he is, not all those ridiculous little rules and laws they come up with themselves.
You will only be judged and rewarded by the amount of love you had for others, you will be judged by the Law of Love, not
any man-made rules about adultery and fornication. The amount of love is what counts. The amount of love you give is
what will count toward your degree of righteousness; and the lack of love you display and manifest will be on the other
side of the balance.
Are you making people feel loved? Are you making it easy for them to love? Or are you putting heavy burdens on them,
that in the final analyses spell out nothing else than: "thou shalt not love"? Which is precisely what those hypocrites are
doing by forbidding to marry, which is and remains a doctrine of devils, whether the person has been married before or
not, and whether the person has decided to become a priest or not. Forbidding anyone to marry, to give them a chance to
manifest that bond of love between two people that it might result in fruit that I have ordained, is a doctrine of devils, who
gleefully rejoice at the deception they have wrought in those self-righteous hearts, that made love for yet two more people
impossible (see 1Tim.4:1-5).
That's what I would call sin! To put a stop to all that love that I could be pouring from one person into another and back
and forth through their loving union - made impossible by some outrageous and preposterous law of man, concocted by
the Devil himself: "Thou shalt not love! It's against our rules!"

66

What bondage! What cruelty! What guilt those self-righteous servants of Satan heap upon themselves, deceiving
themselves into believing that they're actually doing Me service with their hypocrisy, their spiritual crimes, their lack of
love and the self-righteous hatred they sow!
As I said "Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees," I say "woe" unto them!
If I remain the Same, yesterday, today and forever, you can be assured that I have not changed in this aspect! Just as I
condemned the self-righteous Pharisees of My days, so do I condemn those of today, even if they call themselves
"Christians." They are the ones of whom I said," Depart from Me, I never knew you!" They never knew Me, and I never knew
them! Their hearts are far from Me, although their lips may praise Me, but their praise is dead - killed by their works, which
are not works of love, but works of self-righteousness, of pride, and thus, of hatred.
They justify their hatred, their killing of the innocents and poor by relying on Me, thus besmirching My name before the
world, making Me a God unworthy of anyone's faith, only worthy to be mocked, despised and rejected. They are the ones
who crucify Me afresh every day. For not only do they reject My sacrifice for themselves by insisting on leaning on their
own righteousness for the "preserving of their salvation" (as if any such thing were possible), but they also rob salvation
from others, leave them in eternal insecurity. Satan rejoices in them as his greatest feat yet, ever! The perfect deception!
The perfect "Christian" cloak, for the perfect satanic and diabolical plot!
Personal witnessing has always been more effective than the mass witnessing and preaching of the churches. I operate
one-on-one, and you must really adopt that style, too.
"Preacher Syndrome," that urge to stand before a crowd and talk or sing: the kind of "show business" that Christianity has
developed into is a clich you've got to get rid of. That's one way in which pride and vanity become the hidden incentives
behind a lot of people's "good deeds."
Too many of My supposed followers, too many so-called Christians don't act as I would, as I did toward them that are
without. They don't beckon them to come in, and so they're committing a greater sin than those they judge! They're
heaping greater guilt on themselves by pushing away from Me those who I love and who I long to come unto Me.
"Whoso doeth the will of God," which is, to give to others, instead of selfishly taking from them, "the same abideth
forever." It's the eternal modus operandi, the one I have ordained from the beginning, the one from which mankind has
strayed, the one you must find the way back to and show others as well.
There are those who are supposed to be going My way and supposedly doing things My way, but have been tricked into
doing things the old carnal and selfish way again. That's why it doesn't matter what you call yourself or pretend to be, but
what you do. Your actions will prove whether you're truly one of Mine or not. You can call yourself whatever you like, you
can be part of whatever church or movement you like, and hide behind the backs of others, but when it comes down to it,
what will determine whether you're really doing things according to My way and My will or not, is your actions.
You can say whatever you want, but it won't make any difference until you do what you say.
Your attitude should be more one of anticipation than one of having already entered into rest and enjoying your rewards.
For this would be a false attitude, based on the deception many of My children live in, in this world, that they think they're
just about in heaven already, and they can really lord it out over the rest of the world... Almost acting as if this earthly
kingdom of theirs were My eternal one.
Be thankful for every less-than-perfect day to remind you that this world is not your home, for too many of My believers
seem to have forgotten that, and seem to think that this is all the home they'll ever need... They know they'll have to leave it
someday when they'll die, and so they try to "bribe" Me with alms, and they try to reserve themselves a fancy spot in
heaven with their money. But when it comes to heavenly rewards, I can't judge anyone by how much they give, but by how
much they've got left and still could have given.
Just keep seeing the truth through it all, and that's what can be the difference between you and church Christians with all
their highly sophisticated technical equipment to keep their show-business Churchianity on the road: your simply saying it
the way it is, saying what's essential, without all the other big ado about it.
Some people let their egos stand in the way of what I really want to do, but they don't realize it. They think their program is
Mine. That's what happens when I have become nothing else but an extension of their own ideas of Me in their minds, but
they're not really in touch with the real Me, they don't really have the real thing, and consequently, the work cannot take off,
because people just fail to see My Spirit at work, but merely see a bunch of guys running around in their own steam... the
same as they see anywhere else: in politics, in the churches...
Just as I said to those who listened to Me during My time on earth, "Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the Scribes
and Pharisees...," I say to you now that unless your love exceeds that of the lifeless, loveless goers-through-the-motions,
it will be of no avail!
I will resurrect My dead church, but I need those who will wake them up!
If the salt of the earth should lose its flavor, what is it going to be good for? If you don't make a difference anymore, and
add some spice to that lifeless, tasteless System, then what good is it?
You're not going to touch or change anybody's life, unless you can show clearly by your behavior and the light in your
eyes that you're different and truly have something else to offer than the lifeless rut they've got!
One of the worst things you could possibly do to Me is to conform to the way others are doing things, thinking you've got
to please them and live up to their expectations...
They're doing their job, and I will bless them and reward them for that. But you've got a different job!

"Many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of
Heaven. But the children of the Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness" (Matth.8:11,12). The children of the
Kingdom often take the Kingdom for granted and despise it, while those who yearn for it from afar treasure it.
Didn't I come to establish a new Kingdom and do away with and abolish the old? What then if those of the new kingdom
are deceived into thinking that the old is still valid, as many Christians do and practically worship the Jews? They worship
the flesh...
Just as it was the Jews, the "children of the kingdom" of then, who persecuted Me and had Me killed, so it is the "children
of the kingdom" of today who most seek to harm you.
They never knew Me, and I never knew them. While many from the east and west, from other religions and cultures, readily
receive you and Me.
Just as "He is not a Jew who is one outwardly" (Rom.2:28, 29), so he is not a Christian that is one outwardly only, and not
as he should be, inwardly, worshiping in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.
The old church has always mocked and persecuted the new one.
The large gist of those who call themselves My people are continuing to lead the world astray into the worship of
Mammon, the ways of self, the glory of the flesh and the worship of the things they create with their own hands...
My Spirit and My grace, and the Father's love are a lot more all-embracing and all-encompassing than many so-called
Christians and even sincere Christians would give Him credit for. Their philosophy remains one of separation and shutting
others out, while My call has always been, "Come!" Whoever is athirst, let him come and drink of the waters of life freely!
There is a deep chasm between those belonging to the top, the officially recognized church, accepted by the System,
which has become an integrated part of the System and even one of its major symbols and perpetrators of its evils, and
those who belong to the bottom, the downtrodden, despised and persecuted church: the ones may have their time of
"reign" and enjoyment in this life, but the others will have theirs in the life to come, when those who reign now will have to
pay the consequences for having chosen to look down upon My truly chosen...
With their lukewarm, sickening ways of worship, their sickening love for the System, their dreadful desire to always be on
top along with the winners, and refusing to walk the path I walked, the path of the apparent loser, their clinging to this
world's riches and their positions in the Devil's matrix, theyre really not amounting to much more than a bunch of traitors
at heart, spiritually, because in reality, they're following him and his lies, instead of My unadulterated truth.
As I told you about rivers: the further downstream you get, the harder it is to maintain it clean, and as far downstream as
the church has gotten, you can sure see a lot of pollution in it.
The short-sighted will always prefer their place among the ranks of the mighty, the apparent winners. Only a few and only
the wise will choose a place among the despised and downtrodden minority, but will find Me there among them...
When you've got this bunch of worldly believers hailing Me like their superstar and absolute hero, while at the same time
acting as if all they're interested in lies in this temporary world, it doesn't jibe. That's what's wrong with the church system.
They think I'm some kind of a cool Dude who can enhance their quality of life both in this world and in the one to come,
bliss here and now and forever, have their cake and eat it, too. They totally ignore all the information about the price that
there is to pay, and thus give a totally wrong picture of what it's supposed to mean to be My disciple...
I admit, the deception is very tempting. Who wouldn't choose the comfortable way? The flesh automatically chooses that
which feels good and is pleasurable... Nobody suffers voluntarily. But what price are you willing to pay for your
comfortable life-style? Who and what are you going to betray?
Set your affections on things above, seek to derive your pleasure and satisfaction from the very Source of life, from Me.
With each Christian Family living their own individual lives in their own individual houses and homes, one most certainly
misses the union that ought to be there in Christianity, as found in the Book of Acts.
The Enemy advertises the self as an entity worthy of attention that quasi amounts to worship, in order to satisfy it and
make it "happy," and even availing yourself of Me, My Word and My truth - although only a fragment and watered-down
version of it - in order to achieve that goal, which amounts to supermarket style religion: picking out certain pleasant
truths, and leaving aside the more unpleasant ones, just serving yourself of the goodies My Word has to offer, and
neglecting the convicting truths that would spur you on to change, sacrifice and action.
The Devil just allows them a tiny little bit of My truth and mixes it with a lot of his own poison of selfishness, and his lie of
the nationalistic version of the "greater cause."
Some folks are just self-oriented, even if they are saved, and in that aspect, they're not really living their salvation, not
really making it work for them nor others in this life, but can actually act counter-productively in relation to My Cause.
There have been many who pretended to be advertising and working for Me, but in the end really only put the emphasis on
their own thing, their own church, or their own name, their own TV program, etc.
I allow a lot of "irrational" things My enemies don't understand. Why do I seemingly bless those Christians so much, when
they're so out of it, so selfish, so cruel to their fellowmen, so concerned about their own things? Well, I do apply My rod of
correction in due time, but they're also all I've got. Who else will listen to Me? Who else will come and spend time with Me?
I'm even thankful for that one hour on Sunday mornings.
Sure, it's peanuts, compared to what they could and probably should be offering Me, but I'm still so grateful for whatever I
can get, that I still gladly provide for them, protect and bless them, just as I have provided for you and blessed you...

68

Give people the benefit of the doubt, that even if they did something you wouldn't have done, the end result might still be
better than having done nothing at all.
Recognize their style, even if it may be different from yours.
I don't mind you using yours. But please also allow others to use theirs. Be encouraging of their style of doing things,
even if it's different from yours and the way you would have done it. Otherwise you're back to the same problem of narrowmindedness that the churches & Pharisees refuse to face.
In order to get on the prophetic channel you have to go one step higher than the usual level of inspiration that you are on
when you write a letter to someone.
That's what people don't realize about Paul's epistles: As devout a man of God that he was, and as full of My Spirit he may
have been, most of his writings were not direct prophecy. So, a lot of those churches, who take everything he ever wrote
as the pure and direct Word of God, are actually making the very mistake Paul warned his followers of: not to become
Paulites, followers of Paul, or of Apollos, or of Peter, etc., but followers of Me.
They don't seek Me for My new and living words, they're building their lives on the writings of a man - however divinely
inspired he may have been - who lived 2000 years ago, oblivious to the fact that the same God who inspired him 2000
years ago is still alive and talking today.
That's why their faith is practically dead, a hollow shell, compared to what it could and should be.
They aren't even aware of the fact that I'm still speaking today, but feeding nearly entirely off the food I gave millennia ago.
You're building on a new and clean foundation, free of the leaven of the Parisees.
Relying on their own strength of the flesh, their own justice and so-called righteousness, they put themselves miles above
others, taking the right to exterminate them, totally ignoring all I ever stood for.
Through their self-righteousness they kill the whole Spirit of what My teachings are supposed to be all about.
It's what leads other peoples and nations of the earth to detest that image of Christianity that America is conveying to the
world. It's simply appalling when any one nation or group of people is so utterly incapable of recognizing their own faults,
constantly self-righteously pointing their finger at others.
No responsibility is ever taken. How are they ever going to learn and grow and mature spiritually as a movement or a
church?
I always took every opportunity I got. If they let Me preach in a Synagogue, I would do it, but of course, they usually
regretted it afterwards, since I didn't always exactly preach according to their liking.
So, it's not as if I'm telling you, "Stay away from church people!" But I need you to be aware of the "leaven of the Scribes
and Pharisees," and the differences between the gospel of bondage they're preaching, and yours, of true liberty.
Your natural tendency is to shun the condemnation they're trying to heap on you, but on the other hand, you need to allow
them to make their decisions, and let them come forward with their accusations in order to expose themselves. If you're
trying shield yourself from their self-righteous attacks, then the truth about them won't come out. The difference between
you and them will not be manifest.
Its pretty hard to recognize sometimes. Even My disciples didn't have a clue what I meant with "the leaven of the Scribes
and Pharisees" (Mt.16). They thought I was talking about bread. Only as time went by and history unfolded before their
eyes, the Pharisees saw to it that I was crucified, and later they witnessed the stoning of Steven, the rage of Saul, before
he was converted, etc., then they got the point, and realized the difference, between the dead and empty religion of the
Pharisees, and the powerful, new way of life I had brought into the world.
All I'm asking you is to preach the Word.
No big, fancy, wonder-group or wonder-church with light shining from everybody's faces, that would make it so easy to
just drag people there by the dozen.
Stop seeking that which attracts the wrong kind of attention! A lot of those guys are into Christianity because it's being
made so darn easy for them. "Join the in-crowd!" "Here, in our cool American church, we're all so happy together, and
you'd be a fool not to want to join us, because we're the kings of the world, and we're all happy and dance and sing and
love Jesus!" "You can have heaven here and now and later, too!"
That bread is baked through and through with the leaven of the Scribes and Pharisees. It looks very yummy and inviting.
So much bigger, sweeter and more tasty than what you've got, that relatively lean and flat loaf of bread baked without any
of the leaven of inflated egos and "better than thou" self-righteousness.
The Devil has many church Christians distracted with his war games in which they're pretending to be fighting evil, or
duped into fighting for him, while they think they're fighting on My side.
He knows he doesn't have to worry about those lukewarm church people; he's practically got them in the sack. He couldn't
stop them from becoming Christians, but he was sure successful at stopping them from ever being anything like
revolutionary Christians.
They just did what they have always done: clear the heathen temples of their idols, put a few crosses in them and convert
them into "Christian temples," never ever paying heed to the fact that I don't dwell in temples made with hands, but that
the Father seeks to be worshiped in spirit and truth.
They just took the heathen idols out of their part of the System, replaced them with Christian symbols and idols, and called
it "Christianity," all the while never having to leave their comfortable situation in the System.
They have their "presidential prayer teams" praying for the troops who are slaughtering the innocents by the tens of
thousands. No wonder the world is getting sick of Christianity. If that's Christianity, I don't want to have anything to do with
it, and I don't. They're going to have to reap the repercussions and consequences of their actions themselves, and they
will have to bear My "Depart from Me, ye workers of iniquity, for I never knew you."

69

Teaching people to defend only their own, individual "territory," their own personality, is good and needed, but the Devil
isn't nearly as scared of this rather selfish approach as he is of one honest soul winner, who is not interested in fixing up
and improving himself, but lays down his life in order for others to be saved.
Success-type Christians don't get their hands dirty like that. It doesn't look good.
The art of spiritual self-defense on an individual level cannot be compared to the universal spiritual warfare.
You may look miserable, lying there in the trenches, in the mud, dirty, stinking and uncomfortable, fighting life-and-death
combat on the dark battle fields of this world, compared to the nice and shiny practice of spiritual self-defense of those
sheltered people in their ivory towers, in their clean white (spiritual) judo suits.
But when it comes down to handing out the medals to the ones who will have been instrumental in winning the global and
universal war for Me, you can imagine, which type of warfare will have had the greater impact.
Not being aware of the greater spiritual warfare can become a dangerous illusion and deception: you think that just
because you get a grip over your personal problems and the evil manifested in your own life, the world is going to be a
better place from now on, and the Devil isn't really up to anything else, like taking over the world, preparing the world for
his own world order, and the final implementation of his mark.
All the attention is drawn toward overcoming personal problems - which is all good and has its place - but there is no
focus whatsoever on the evil the Devil is perpetrating in the rest of the world. The attitude behind that is, "Let the rest of
the world go to hell, as long as we can save ourselves."
All those good works look nice, but what are all those good works compared to one immortal soul snatched away from the
claws of the Devil?
What are all those nice and spiritually groomed Christians trained in the art of self-defense going to do against the flood of
evil that is sweeping the rest of the world? What are they doing in order to really establish My Kingdom on earth, apart
from fixing up their own individual little kingdoms?
When it comes to truly offering the world an alternative to its Godless and ruthless System, then the truth does look
somewhat different than the picture these people portray, and their picture differs largely from the one not only I see, but
also the reality of billions of other people, who might not be able to afford their 4-step self-improvement programs,
however divinely inspired they may be.
Being a Christian is all about Me. It's not about how good or bad your fellow Christians are, but it's about the Christ, the
One Who came to clean up everything, no matter how big the mess is that everyone else made, including out of this mess
called Christianity today.
The churches are such a dilemma and such a farce because they just don't have the love! They've been trying to do My
work without love! And how can you do My work - the work for the One Who is Love - without love? How can you do good
without goodness in your heart? How can a loveless tree bring forth fruits of love?
You know that this isn't the way things are supposed to be. You may not know what to do about it, any other than coming
to Me in desperation, but that's at least something... It's something for Me to work with, for starters.
At least I can convey My view to you, at least you're crying out to Me for help... anything but sink into the morass of the
self-satisfied complacency of the pseudo-Christian System junkies.
Most Christians say, We shall not see any sorrow. Gods going to whisk us into Heaven before the Tribulation comes.
But My children need to pass through the Tribulation in order to be cleansed and purified from their sins, from their many
lacks and ways in which they are failing to love Me truthfully, genuinely and sincerely.
Part of loving Me is manifested in loving the truth, and not settling for any comfortable half-truth and compromise with the
truth, such as the easy-way-out Pre-Tribulation-Rapture doctrine.
They want Me to whisk them out of this world and into Heaven before the Tribulation that would make them clean and pure
and white for Me. They want the easy way out; they dont want to go the full length of the path for Me.
They deny others the right to their Salvation and the security of eternal Salvation, because they couldnt bear the thought
that they should be so much less than special to have to share Heaven with all those other seemingly less deserving than
they.
They shut themselves and their followers off to the voices of truth and wisdom, so that their own voices will be heard, and
their own truths will be proclaimed instead. They want to establish their own rule, instead of allowing My Holy Spirit to
rule over them.
And they reject truths of My Gospel, such as forsaking all, having all things in common, and going into all the world to
preach the Gospel out of obviously selfish reasons, coming up with cheap excuses why I possibly couldnt demand such
sacrifices of them in this day and age.
People who put Me in boxes and portray Me as a moody God Who would one day consider someone saved and on another
day condemn them back to hell if they dont behave accordingly or dont keep the rules, they dont have any idea how off
they are, and how they are distorting the picture of Who I really am in peoples minds, and what amount of damage theyre
doing by creating this false image of Me.
The world doesnt need another group of people who preach that picture of a harsh, unforgiving and rigid God, but they
need to see Me as I really am: a merciful, forgiving, ever-pardoning God Whose heart is broken over the atrocities
committed unto man by those who claim to be on My side, when nothing could be further from the truth.
They have never known Me, and thus I have never known them. They dont know Who I am. And accordingly, they portray
and convey a false picture of Me to the world, and thats the idol I want you to tear down and destroy: the false image of Me
that others have created for the world.

70

The main purpose of My Word is not just to instill some fleeting feeling and emotion of inspiration, like the folks in church
on Sundays are craving, but the main purpose of the truth is to ignite in others a faith that they can build their lives on.
The feeling isnt the goal, but the goal is the life you can build from the working relationship and the trust that it
engenders.
Thats marriage. Thats being My bride. Thats more than just being a visitor on Sundays and giving Me an occasional call
just to let Me know what you need. Thats receiving My seeds in you and allowing them to bring forth fruit in you from Me
with time. Thats being family.
So, youre not cool. Relax, youre not the only one! Its not the end of the world! Youll survive not being cool or in,
or hip! Its bad enough that all those churchy Christian singers are trying so hard to be hip and friends with the
world. So, youre not a friend of the world, and maybe they label you as nutcase or weirdo! Thats the way it should
be!
You wouldnt want to be an accepted part of their world! Not by My standards, anyway. And as wonderful as some of those
Christian singers may be, the kind of signal theyre flashing out to the world is a deceptive one. Its a message that
conveys the notion that its okay to be hip and cool with the world and the System, and yet be My disciple at the same time.
You can be a star in this world, and a servant of God at the same time! You can serve God and Mammon, after all!
Never before was the way that leads to destruction and hell so broad and wide, and never before did so many walk in it!
Even a lot of saved people are walking down that same road to destruction, and to the perdition of all their works! The
only thing theyll save out of it will be their naked souls, but so as if through fire.
Many have left My straight but rugged, wild and narrow path for the seemingly more sophisticated broadway to destruction
that the large majority of the world is going.
Whats really behind it is faith in this present world, rather than the better one to come, and love for this present world, that
causes the Demases to forsake Me and My Cause and My people the desire to have it all here and now, instead of
suffering a bit now in order to reign later. And the lie of the churches is, of course, the ultimate and very tempting
compromise: You can have both: fame and fortune here and now and in the afterlife! You can be a star, both, in this life
and in Heaven.
Well, but Im going to be the One to decide who is really going to go over as a star and who will shine like the
firmament in My Kingdom, and those compromisers that look so appealing and so together certainly wont be among
My true stars who gave it all up in order to lead many to righteousness.
You cant lead many to righteousness by singing exclusively to those who think theyre so righteous already. You certainly
wont become a star in Heaven by being a star among the lukewarm church of Laodicea, and reaping their applause! Its
easy to become partakers of her sin, and it happens more subtly than many realize. In fact, they dont.
Unfortunately, sometimes, in the effort of setting out on this enterprise to give love to others, the immediate and
apparently more pressing task of obtaining what one needs in order to survive takes over the good intentions, and
occupies much more time and space than the actual giving of love The surrounding machinery becomes much bigger
than its core and original purpose, often to such an extent that it can hardly be found anymore.
Thus is the curse of organized religion, and why people simply arent attracted to it; because what most of them are
looking for is love, not organization. Now, if you manage to somehow organize your task of giving love to the world, thats
great. But realistically, what it looks like in most peoples lives is that the love gets buried beneath a pile of organizational
efforts to the point where only remnants of that love remain seen.
There is a difference between the official, recognized and lukewarm version of Christianity, and the white-hot Real Thing!
If youre genuinely following My path, youll never have a big fan crowd.
Thats whats so deceptive about show-business type of Christianity. They make it look like you can be one of My true
disciples and yet a superstar at the same time. A lot of the things they say sound very anointed and right on, and possibly,
peoples lives are changed and genuinely touched through some of them. But ultimately, the way they lead others is just
another dead end street up Mammons road, another case of man worship and indulgence in the flesh, temple worship and
the creation of a new idol: yet another, even more cunningly disguised counterfeit of the Real Thing.
The world is not in need of another few drops in a bucket, but it needs a raging river and lakes to swim in.
The world needs a lot more than what the churches have to give!
A definite, literal interpretation of the Scripture (when they would all prefer to keep it in the theoretical, symbolic or
spiritual realm), would mean that they would have to implement Scriptures and apply them literally, which would require
drastic changes of their selfish life-style, since it would implicate that Christians are supposed to do more than just live
selfish lives and go to church every once in a while
Theyre hostile toward evangelical types who have enough fire to do something about their faith and go out to promote it,
those full of the Holy Ghost.
Just like the Pharisees of all ages, they persecute and fight against a small group and minority of believers that they brand
as culprits, and wind up fighting against Me in the process and sticking their finger in My eye.

71

The gifts of My Spirit are for those who want to put My Word into practice, who want to put My will into action, and live it,
theyre for My Action People. Those who want to be more than just the sermon type of Christian who goes to church
once a week to listen to the preacher and call that service to God.
Love your enemies is the message, and a fairly important one, because this is what will truly make you stand apart as
true Christians, as opposed to those who sanction killing their supposed enemies (many of which have never done them
any harm), by the tens of thousands in far-away countries.
My Spirit sank down into the lowest regions of society and brought to life what formerly had no life, and caused those to
sing and shout My praises who did not know Me, as opposed to those who sit in their pews on Sundays and do pretend to
know Me, but praise Me with their lips only, while their hearts are far from Me.
Christianity hasnt done a fair job at representing Me for the last three quarters of its existence, with few exceptions here
and then.
And especially during this time, the age of temptation, which is heading for that final hour of temptation I have
announced in My Book of Revelation, it has been especially hard for My followers to remain separated and white-hot
revolutionary witnesses and uncompromising fighters for Me.
The church has never had such an arsenal of temptations to fight against. The Devil is really giving it his all in this day and
age. The Early Church didnt have a fraction of all that to deal with that My children are having to deal with today.
Most Christians dont realize all the significant changes between the Old and the New Testament. They ignore the fact that I
was having conversations during My lifetime with such deceased saints as Moses and Elijah, as recorded in the Gospels,
and according to their standards, I would have had to be labeled a necromancer.
Theyre afraid of the spirit world, just as they are afraid of astrology, sex, or anything else that doesnt fit within the narrow
frame of their mindset which restricts My communications with mankind to the Bible only. Theyre afraid of virtually
anything except the most horrible thing of all, war, which on the other hand they condone and justify and claim that it may
be okay and justifiable to kill thousands, nay, millions, for a supposedly righteous cause or their supposedly Christian
nation.
They wont allow sex outside the frame of marriage, they wont allow people to be free from the fear of hell, but insist they
can lose their salvation anytime they sin; they wont allow people to find out more about their fellowmen via tools such as
astrology, but they do allow and condone for a Christian to go to war and kill thousands of innocent people for their
government, as long as it sails under any pretense of Christendom.
They deny their people access to the spirit world, deny them the gifts of the Spirit, including miracles,; they deny them
much of the knowledge about the Endtime, and deny them the privilege to live by faith like My original disciples, but they
sanction and condone their going to war to blatantly defy My commandment not to kill, but to love your enemies.
They deny their followers the freedom from the burden of the ten commandments and the Mosaic Law, which I came to
fulfill and thereby bring a new Law, the Law of Love, but at the same time they claim that its perfectly alright to continually
break the commandment, Thou shalt not kill in their innumerable wars in the name of Western enlightenment and
democracy.
They claim that it is righteous to break the commandment Thou shalt not kill, but it would be unpardonable to break the
commandment, Thou shalt not commit adultery. What hypocrisy, what a sick religion, and no wonder most of the rational
world doesnt want to have anything to do with it!
Just as the Jews have gone astray and have become a people that opposes Me and fights Me and hates Me, and have
continuously resisted My prophets, so the churches have become not fighters for My Cause as much as fighters against
My Cause on a large scale, by giving the world a false sample of what Christendom is supposed to be like, of what I am
truly like, and by resisting My new prophets and messengers throughout every era since the Early Church.
Most churches, which are part of the System, and dont even try to offer a way out of it, because they dont even see a
need for any way out of it.
They are lovers of the world, not lovers of Mine. They would condemn the practice of Loving Jesus as perverse or
obscene, while they all the while go a-whoring after other gods, the gods of this world, and they commit non-stop spiritual
fornication and adultery with this world.
Where the Spirit of God is, there is liberty, and they dont have liberty. They are slaves to the System and slaves of the
Devils lies, just like everybody else. All they have is a pretense of freedom.
I warned My disciples to beware of the leaven of the Scribes and Pharisees A form of godliness without the power
thereof.
Youve got to maintain yourselves pure of their influences, and thats why I do not recommend listening to their music
excessively and consuming their brackish waters.
Every now and then there will be an exceptionally anointed and dedicated believer among them, but in general, the
description I gave 2000 years ago is still appropriate: lukewarm.
Money plays a big role in their lives, and preserving their living standard, so in their sample theyre actually defying My
message that you cannot serve God and Mammon, and that he that saveth his life shall lose it.
These people try to make it seem as if, Look, the path that Jesus was talking about doesnt always have to be that narrow
road It can also be that huge highway we have built and were riding down all together, and were having so much fun
They think its some kind of progress, and theyve converted My path into a comfortable, sociable road thats easily
traveled, just as easily and comfortably as the Systems. And it causes you to wonder Lord, could it be?
But you and I know that theirs is not the real thing!

72

If they would really have the real thing, they would recognize My voice when they hear it. And some do, but then they try to
get Me to tug along on their conventional way, their usual way, because they simply dont have the courage and faith to let
go of Conventional Road and follow Me up Revolutionary Road.
Some will be saved as if through fire, and their works will not stand before Me. They could have chosen the Real Thing
when they got a glimpse of it! They could have recognized Me in it and they could have sought to get more of it. But they
didnt really want it. It was too scary for them, and the other road looked much more inviting and comfortable And on
they travel on their usual, run-off-the-mill Conventional Road, pretty much the same way as everybody else, never really
making a difference for Me, no matter how much they may try to tell themselves that they are.
Its okay to sympathize with them, show your approval to some extent, but then its time again to follow Me and let the
dead bury their dead.
Sometimes I let you walk a piece of the way with them just to let you know that their way is not where its at, to let you see
the flaws in it, and where the differences are between what theyve got and the Real Thing.
A bold and convinced individual professing his love for Me might go further to inspire another individual to reach out to
Me than all the choirs and worship bands in the world.
In many cases Christians who believe in Evolution are really hypocrites, and not true believers at all, because their lives
are guided by and geared toward the teachings of Evolution and the survival of the fittest, rather than My teachings of
Blessed are the meek and merciful.
Fakes may be tastier and more attractive than the truth momentarily, but they fail to satisfy in the long run, and sooner or
later people will develop a taste and hunger for the Real Thing.
Thats why many people become Christians after having lived a life of atheism.
The problem is, the only version of Christianity they largely have available is largely just another fake in itself, and it takes
another while for them to get sick of that lie, and develop a hunger for the even deeper and more pure truth the truth and
nothing but the truth, no lies mixed in with it.
A lot of people have the attitude that whatever path they have found must be the right one, just because they have found it,
and they cling so tightly to that, which is really nothing more than an extension of their own selves in many cases, instead
of truly and wholeheartedly clinging to Me.
They try to get anybody to subscribe to and support their program, and they think they themselves are the center, instead
of letting Me be the true Center of their lives, thats why they hardly ever recognize it when someone is in their midst that
has truly made Me the center and most important Factor in their lives.
They usually only counter it with envy and resistance when they see it, because they know that there is something there
that they havent got themselves; they havent been willing to let go to that extent, they havent gone as far for Me or to
touch Me and lay all else aside
They say its their church or their thing thats the real thing, but as long as there is still a whole lot of System or ego
attached to it, it cannot be the Real Thing, because only I am the Real Thing, and the degree to which you become the real
thing, too, is determined by how much your life truly revolves around Me, and by how much you allow Me to really run and
rule and control your life, by how much time you spend with Me in a real, living relationship and really touch Me.
People put all this emphasis on their fellowship with each other, but in many cases its sad, because its really only a
substitute for a relationship with Me they could and ought to have. Only once that relationship with Me is established and
real, and you have regular fellowship with Me, does fellowship with each other also really start making sense and become
edifying and lifting up for anyone.
without Me you can do nothing even applies to fellowship. Without having touched and known Me personally, there isnt
much you can give or do to make anybody else really feel better, inspired or uplifted and strengthened, because all that the
contact with you will do for them is present a confrontation with another ego, just another wandering star adrift in this
world with nothing much to give, who just wants their own light to be seen and admired a little bit.
Whereas if you really and truly shine with My light you have something to give, and you radiate a light and warmth that
truly makes others feel good, and gives them something. Youve got to have the fire of the Holy Spirit they can warm
themselves by.
And if thats lacking, if thats missing, what good is it? What is it worth? If its not Me youve got to give to people, to what
avail is it? If its not My light you shine forth, isnt it just another version of the darkness?

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Commitment & Devotion

What thine hand findeth to do, do it with thy might. Proverbs 9:10
And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13
People have to realize that in this life, a lot depends on them. A lot depends on them, when it comes to whether they will ever see
the fulfillment of their dreams or not. How much are they willing to invest? How much elbow-grease are they willing to put into it? If
your input is zero, thats what you will reap. He that soweth sparingly, shall also reap sparingly.
If you want something out of life, youve got to put something into it & not just sit back passively & wait for everything to just come
along.
A missionary is a man or woman who is utterly dedicated and yielded to Me, not holding anything back. Nothing else
matters to them but to give, to pass on that which they have received from Me. They are compelled, driven by that force,
that love unspeakable, peace that passeth the understanding of your mind, My supernatural Spirit. The love of Christ
constraineth them.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak (Mt.26:41).
To will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not (Rom.7:18). Youve got to will a little harder
& put your will so much on My side that the unwillingness of the flesh will be overcome.
Your spirit, may be willing; but your flesh, your old man, may act quite unwillingly. But since what actually counts is what
you do, not merely your intentions, how willing you really were is evidently seen in the physical manifestation, your
works...
Although you may consider yourself willing, there is still more to give, more progress to be made, more willingness to be
shown.
Real willingness says, Yes, Sir! Whats mine is Yours; what else can I give? And the more you practice THAT kind of
willingness, the easier it becomes, because THATS the kind of willingness that makes Me willing to pour out My blessings
to you beyond measure... And in the process, you become more & more willing all the time!
The quality of your performance depends on your dedication & what you put into it. Sometimes some rather unknown
actor in a little, less significant side-role can take the audiences breath away more than the main actors & characters, & by
the grace of God you can be such a man, but its up to you, your willingness to put all youve got into it...
If the motive is to inspire them & to help them make it, & to give your own life for anothers & forsake your own interests,
then anything is possible. But if you just want to show off how much better you think you can do, you might as well forget
it.
The best is to be content with your little role & play it the best you know how & trust Me for it & just do what you can to
make the best of it. You never know who might be chosen for different roles in a later cast... And theres still lots of stories
to be told, a lot of history to make & a lot of victories to be won that people are going to tell tales & write plays about for a
long time to come.
Its in your hand to make Me proud of you!
Half-heartedness doesnt have to be your destiny!
All Im expecting is that you put yourself into a position of willingness & commitment to do My will. Im expecting you to
say Yes, & really apply yourself to obeying Me. Once you make the decision that youre going to obey come what may, I
do the rest for you & help you to put it into practice & into action. Youve got to do the wenting, Ill do the leading & all
the rest.
When I'm putting before you an option to do the absolutely radical, contrary-to-all-your-rational-reasoning thing, how
radical are you? How sold out for Me are you? How willing to really say "Yes!" to Me without reservations?
Are you willing & ready & open for My very best? I will never let you be tempted above that you are able, but I still require
you to say "yes" sometimes. If you say, "yes" you will open up relays in the spirit.
Everything that's worth something costs something.
The best warriors are the crazy warriors, who barge into the Enemy's territory with a wild roar and shout, the ones who get
carried away by the rush of victory!
This time right now might be the only time in history, the last chance left, before My return, to really burn free and let the
chips fall where they may, to freely sow My seeds, to really let them have it!
That's why I want you to pour it out without measure, not stingily, but generously, just pouring out your life, all you've got!

74

Be enriched and strengthened to go forth to conquer and to conquer! You are My followers, and just as I have gone forth to
conquer and to conquer, so must you. Be not fearful, be not hesitant, be not overly cautious, but be valiant, be
courageous, be brave. Give it all, holding nothing back!
Get ready for whatever comes & whenever it comes! Ready to give it your best and your all. Leave nothing to chance.
Dedication and devotion is not quite the same as ambition, even though it may look the same.
Ambition is when someone tries to zealously achieve something for themselves; they want to be successful, and that's
their motivation. Dedication is that same zeal, but not for yourself, but for others, because you love them, and are
determined to do the best you can for them.
You are there to light their fire, not to reflect their warmth, or wait & see whether they have any warmth at all. Light their fire
& get'em hot!
Warfare isn't always beautifully organized. The signal sounds and you rush out onto the battle field, and you don't always
look good in the mess that results out there. The only question that will remain is: have you done what you could? Will you
have given it your all?
The easy way out, the path of the least resistance, the comfortable path with the least possible effort required is a poor
choice!
You have the potential in you to become one of those crazy overcomers for whom it is never enough to give, one of those
who just run on crazy faith that keeps them going forward for Me, no matter what the odds are against you.
It's one thing to serve when you're forced to, but it's another thing to really learn to serve voluntarily from the heart,
because you choose to. That is an important lesson to pass on to others, because if they only learn to serve because they
have to, then they will always seek a way out of servitude as soon as they can. You must instill in them a desire to serve, to
give, to be of service to others voluntarily, out of love.
Its nearly impossible to do in the flesh, which is why you need the help of My Spirit. It helps to have a convicting sample of
someone faithfully serving that convicts others & motivates them to think & feel, "I should be like that, too."
You've got to show that laziness & lethargy is a weakness, a sin, an enemy, which has to be fought. It's a choice they need
to make.
It's the choice between going through life with a "gimme, gimme" attitude of consumerism, seeking to enjoy all you can, to
get all the input you can, and laying down your life for others. The latter defies the flesh & all that "makes sense" to you in
terms of self-preservation, the so-called rules of "evolution," which is really just the philosophy of the Devil.
Teaching somebody to serve out of love really requires love, and giving and living a loving sample yourself, first. It's got to
be My Spirit moving in you, inspiring you to do what you can to help others & make them happy, bringing to birth in you
the desire to do something good for others because you love them.
How about an "anti-coolness campaign?" Get on fire for Me, and you'll see, people will start sharing your excitement once
you show that you're making an effort to share theirs. "The real believers get excited and praise the Lord!" Are you a real
believer? Here's another quality and trademark of a true believer: not only do they receive and drink in constantly from Me,
but they also get excited about it.
Life is too beautiful, too important, too significant, too precious to be wasting it in a state of mediocre "coolness" and lack
of emotion, thrills, joy and excitement about anything. Get some heat into your life! Coolness is a manifestation of pride.
It's the refusal to show participation, to be willing to get excited along with someone else.
Sharing excitement is an important ingredient & way of showing love. Share the excitement! Share the joy!
If someone doesn't share the joy & refuses to get excited, that's no reason to let them drag you down to their level. Don't
just remain "cool" or indifferent, but get excited. Spread some fire!
I call that dedication to the job when someone is so willing to become whatever they're supposed to become, they forget
about everything else. They're willing to do the humble thing, to play the lowly role; they're willing to not look so hot, or
even downright ugly for the cause, the message coming across. The message is what counts, and all they consider
themselves is a humble vessel to bring it across, nothing else.
Taking for granted what you have, and wanting something different, the "grass on the other side" syndrome, prevents you
from ever putting your whole heart into the situation you're in, from applying any elbow grease to it, and instead of being
enthusiastic and on fire, you just passively wait for the day when things will change for the better, which might never
happen, because I'm waiting for you to take the initiative to change things yourself!
Learn to be a thermostat instead of a mere thermometer.
You can only expect any garden or plot of land to yield its fruit after you've purged it from the rocks, weeds & brambles
that might otherwise choke the tender sprouts of your fruit.
It's work. It simply requires time and hard work.
Go into every day as if it were a big day.
Go in "giving-it-all-you're got" gear. Make it a habit to invest the same kind of energy & dedication into every day. It will
bring a better equilibrium, a better balance in your life, treating your days with less partiality. If you treat every day the

75

same & consider you're always on stage - My stage, & in My spotlight, you'll eventually render a better performance of
your life.
If you live each day as unto Me, then you'll know & can rest assured that I'll carry the responsibility for the outcome & you
can float on My Spirit instead of having to crawl through your tasks in the flesh.
If you always seek to accomplish the most you can - however, not in the energy of the flesh, but by availing yourself of My
power - you'll up your productivity & pace in general.
The things you do for Me have everlasting rewards. Show Me that you esteem My rewards more valuable than the lucre of
the world.
Seek not to be able to be proud of your own accomplishments & carnal achievements, leaving your mark among mortals,
but make Me proud of you by investing all you've got into eternal rewards. Please Me by showing your faith in Me, &
investing into My Realm accordingly. Make My plans more important to you than your own.
A day where I rule the circumstances, and one of which you can truly say, "this is the day which the Lord hath made," is a
day which is dedicated to My purpose, to the advance of My Kingdom, where all you've got is employed in order to bring
forth fruit for Me.
It requires the pouring out of the very essence of your life, your life-blood, just like I did. That's following in My footsteps.
Devotion to the little things is what marks and distinguishes a great man.
Treasure every moment, and live it fully.
If you put the right kind and amount of energy and vision into the little things at home, the right amount of elbow-grease,
attention, interest & umph, then those very little things are going to get you far. If you project your long-term vision into
your short-term projects it can fuel them and get you a lot further than if you just go through your daily routines in a hohum kind of way.
Its got to be love that motivates you, its got to be the heart.
When you pray, pray from the heart. When you speak, speak from the heart. When you sing, sing from the heart.
Faith from the heart, thats the flame youve got to tend, the power youve got to feed from and act from: thats gotta be
your motor, the hearth on which is to be done whatever youre cooking up... where its got to be happening! Thats where
youve got to find your answers, your motivations, your direction, your driving force that spurs you on.
Your life can take on a whole new meaning and outlook, your days can become much brighter, if you learn to seek not only
what I can do for you, but what you can do for Me, and make that your primary incentive!
May you discover the joy of what it means to really be able to say with your whole heart, "All I want to do is serve Him!"
Seek the opportunities to do something good, to be a blessing to someone else with your whole heart, the same way
you would seek Me, My face and My counsel, the way a blind man would desire sight! It's an effort you've got to make, a
whole-hearted effort. You cannot just be passive or lukewarm about it. You ought to be desperate about making sure you
did just what it took each day to make a difference in someone's life, to draw them closer to Me. That's what I'd call
concern, dedication and (com-)passion!
You know there's got to be some purpose why you're here today, there's got to be some good you can do today, and an
important part of My plan that you can fulfill, so you're determined to find it.
I want to be connected to your heart.
My Kingdom must be based on more than mere intelligence or thought. It's got to be more than brainpower, but love power
that moves you into action... emotion!
Put your heart into it! If you try to figure it all out in your head & analyze it to pieces, it's going to look ugly. From a rational
point of view, this life doesn't make a lot of sense; too much imperfection. It's not smooth enough for the mind. It's too
rough, too many rough edges.
That's why you're only really going to get through life successfully if you put your heart into it.
Folks around you are never going to be completely convinced that you truly love them, unless you learn to dedicate
yourself to them wholeheartedly, to listen to them as if they were the only thing that mattered at that moment. That's the
way I talked to My disciples, and they knew that what I had to say mattered.
Focus on people and their needs. Recognize them for what they are, pay attention to them! Give them your time! Give them
your full attention, as if nothing else was more important, and - when it all comes down to it - nothing really is. Because
you can only say in the end that you loved Me as much as you managed to love the least of these, your brethren.
Dedicating your time to Me is an art that can be improved by the amount of energy and intensity you put into it.
Committing the day into My hands in prayer is like drawing a rough sketch & a general outline that says, "here, Lord, make
out of it the best you know how." But if you want to go into the details and make a fine art out of it, you say, "Lord, I
dedicate this next hour to You, and I want to put my whole being into it! Take me, possess me to the full and help me to
make the utmost possible out of it." It's like the difference between passively making love and being the one who takes the
initiative. There's a time for both, but as you know, it's nice to have variety.
Put some passion into it, some initiative, some more dedication.
The amount you'll get out of it is determined by what you put into it.

76

The more you are determined not to settle for anything less than the very best you can make and get out of each single
day, the more wholeheartedly you pray, the greater the results are going to be.
When I know you give Me your all, and there's nothing you're withholding from Me, then I also give My all to you. When
there's nothing withheld, but all is given on both sides, that is utter surrender, total passion, that's when life has truly
begun.
By holding back you're just cheating yourself out of the greatest possible thrills you could ever experience.
What the world needs now is not just another "cool" looking Christian. What they need is the fire to warm themselves by,
they need to watch someone burn for Me, totally regardless of what anyone may think of them. I like to use people who
don't give a damn about whether the whole world thinks they're nuts.
Crazy times call for crazy measures. Look at it: the world's gone crazy. How do you think you're going to wake them up and
reach them and speak their language? By acting all "normal?" They're just finding out there is no such thing.
Sometimes the apparently easier way, chosen to make things easier on yourself, can turn out to be a detour instead of a
shortcut. It's better to put your whole heart into something from the start, even if it means it will cost more effort and work,
than to half-heartedly start something that's going to cost a lot more time later to fix and patch up.
Whatever a man sows, that will he also reap, and with the measure he metes, he shall also be met. You're going to get out
of life, out of love, out of everything - the same amount you're putting into it, everything reflects on you with the same
intensity that your own efforts originated in. Half-hearted prayers will only receive half-hearted answers; half-hearted
works will only reap half-hearted rewards, fruits and results.
You've got to put something into it, in order to get something worthwhile out of it, that's just the way it goes, one of the
rules of the universe. The boomerang comes back to you with the same intensity that you flung it. So it pays to put a bit
more umph and zest into it, doesn't it? If you want more, you've got to give more! If you want to receive more, you've got
to send more.
You've got to get serious about it, dedicated, devoted.
You've got to develop some zest, some determination, some stick-to-it-iveness, gumption, perseverance, some do-or-die
spirit. You can't always avoid all the ugly parts by just laying low and playing Mr. Nice-Guy. The battle is bloody and
chaotic, and those involved don't exactly come across or strike anyone as "nice."
I'm as close as you want Me! I can be as real to you now as you'd ever want Me to be! You don't have to wait until you're
more mature or wiser or "ready," or until your faith is strong enough.
You can have Me right now in all My fullness, without restrictions and limitations, as much as you can handle! How much
of Me can you handle? How much of Me do you want right now? How badly do you want to see Me, feel Me, hear Me, touch
Me, experience Me, live in Me? How badly do you desire Me? It's all up to you! The distance between Me and you is only
determined by yourself and no other factor.
You figure, "Why should I make a greater effort?" Because your effort could change everything! Your commitment can
change the world! Your choice to put more into it, even though nobody else may be putting that much into it can change
the world for better forever!
Everything depends on you! As far as your life is concerned, whatever you want to make happen in it, depends on you,
your initiative, your incentive, your vision, your guts, your faith! - Your determination not to allow yourself to get
sidetracked or discouraged! - Your "yes-power."
Sometimes I draw your attention to a needed change or improvement by showing you something better than what you
have; a need to learn from someone else who has gone further than you. It's a way I use to spur you on to growth and
progress.
It has nothing to do with status, but it's all about the amount of dedication and commitment you have for My Cause.
It's convicting when you find someone who's more serious about it all than you are, who puts more into it, who's more
yielded and dedicated and thus brings forth more fruit. It's easy when others are giving less or seem to be somewhat
weaker. But when you find someone who is stronger and ahead of you, and more dedicated than you are, then initially it
may make you feel a bit small in comparison.
If you have no one to look up to, then it can be a bit sad and lonely at times, up there on that lonely hill or pedestal...
When you're face to face with another person, I would like you to devote and dedicate your attention fully to them. If you're
in the middle of something else, it may be a test of your love, but I'd like you to make an effort to tear yourself loose from
what you were doing and devote your full attention to that person.
It's all about playing the role I gave you to play, and about doing a good job at it: to play the role I gave you to play with
your whole heart and with heartfelt dedication, devotion, and getting into it to such an extent that it will leave the audience
with their jaws wide open. You want them to recognize that something great and awesome has been happening there. God
was here, and He blew on that person's life and lifted it from the miry clay into the sky, for all to see...
People want a good show. They don't care so much about the title of the role you're playing. What matters is how you play
it. If you're going to be a Christian, be one with your whole heart (because there's enough of them around already who play
that part with a lukewarm, half-hearted attitude).

77

If you determine that this is what you're going to stick to and follow through with, then you should not do it grudgingly, but
wholeheartedly.
Don't look at the half-heartedness of others. Just make sure you're not a half-heart yourself! After all, there won't be any
legitimate excuses for not having given your all, such as, "Well, they didn't give their all, so I didn't, either..." That sounds
pretty lame, doesn't it?
You never hear much about those who took the easy way out, who didn't dare to take the challenge.
This reality, and this life, as paradox and irrational as it may seem, with all its contradictions and things that don't seem to
make any sense, is, after all, the one real thing. This is it! You can and ought to really put your whole heart into it, because
this is it.
No use wondering what could have been or might have been in some other life or parallel world or universe or some other
reality... No need to look for anything better somewhere out there. This is it, right here, the one and only, the best. You
won't find anything better anywhere else.
If you can fully trust that I'm only allowing the best possible option for you right now, here in this life, then who needs an
endless amount of other variables and options to try out?
There's a definite effort happening on My part and all those working alongside Me, both in the Spirit World and in the
physical, including you, to make the best possible out of this. It's supposed to become a masterpiece, and not just one
more random result of innumerable other trials and errors...
The hard-working, all-giving, dedicated disciples may be somewhat of a minority. But youll have to decide what group
youre going to belong to: the on-fire minority, or the lukewarm majority.
Everything thats worth something costs something. How much are you willing to invest?
The discipleship life is something you simply dont manage half-heartedly!
In order to achieve the ultimate results in your service and discipleship for Me, it sure helps to make that commitment and
have the determination at the beginning of the day, that youre going to give it your all for Me.
Its a mindset, or rather a heart-set; an inner attitude and determination of the heart. You know My Cause is worth living
and dying for, and so, youre simply willing to give all, even unto death
You must seek and search for Me with all your hearts. You can not go at the usual pace, not with half-hearted dedication
and devotion; it wont do. In order to make it through this next stretch of the way before you, youre going to have to give
more, youre really wholeheartedly going to have to dedicate yourself to the Cause, no haphazardly, shrug-of-shoulder
type of attitude is going to cut the cake.
The time for coolness is over. What is urgently and desperately needed is the fire of devotion. Coolness isnt going to
bring you through the night, only the fire is; otherwise, youre just going to freeze and starve to death.
When I talk about professionalism Im talking about professional engagement in bringing about and furthering the
cause of My Kingdom on earth; commitment on a professional level.
The only way youre ever going to get people to roll up their sleeves and pitch in and help you with your work is if they see
you really being dedicated about it yourself.
You might be in this for a longer haul than you may have originally been hoping or preparing for.
With a half-hearted attitude, its going to take longer to get the job done!
I cant let you off the hook before you get the job done.
In My school, there is no graduating with bad grades!
There isnt any mention in My Book of anybody just having done a mediocre job for Me.
Unless you give it all youve got, youll lose, either way!
You can only win, if and providing you give your all.
You are doomed to failure if you dont, and just hang in there half-heartedly.
If youre going to hang in there, I need you to do it with a whole-hearted attitude.
I dont need more than a handful to win the battle in the decisive moment. The only question is, as far as youre concerned:
will you be in that number, and will you be there when we fight that battle?
If you hate the Enemy enough, you will refuse to be sent home! You will insist on being there when Ill bring an end to him,
along with My few chosen ones.
Let the rest of the cowards and half-hearts walk home, which is what they wanted to do all along, and go back to sleep. But
youre going to want to be in on that battle!
Thats all that counts to Me: just a handful and a few determined, relentless ones, bent on fighting the Enemy to the death!
The God of all flesh is just as alive and around as He used to be during the time of Gideon and all His other ancient
prophets. The scoffers may not believe it, because He never showed up to cater to their whims. But that is because the
God of all flesh is not interested in those who only seek to be catered to. He doesnt need another bunch of pampered
brats, because He has seen enough of that already, as Im sure you have, too.
The only question is, will you have what it takes to make a difference and be one of those exceptions who wont fall for any
of the tricks of the Enemy to either scare you, or put you to sleep or distract or hypnotize you?

78

If you cannot believe and trust Me for the tens of thousands you do see, trust Me for the 300 you may not be able to see,
those that I will use in the end to win the battle with, and consider them a worthy cause to be rendering your resources,
your life, your energies to.
If you knew how much is at stake, you would be a lot more serious about the role youre supposed to play.
There are going to be vast differences in the rewards people will receive in My Kingdom. Another reason to pull your act
together and take your job on earth seriously, and give it all you got and do all you can, in order not to be among those
who will lament how much more they could have done
As you need to guard the flame of your connection with Me, the flame of My Spirit within you, you must also give special
care to that which you might call your destiny, your calling, your job and purpose for Me, and strive everyday to achieve
the highest marks and get closest to the highest score you could possibly attain.
I need you to pay attention more wholeheartedly and dedicate even more of your time and efforts to My Cause, because
you cant win the battle half-heartedly.
Its time to give it your all and put everything youve got into this.
Im talking about whats happening between you and Me, your relationship with Me and whatever Im telling you to give and
pass on to the world.
I am the Real Thing, and the degree to which you become the real thing, too, is determined by how much your life truly
revolves around Me.
I cant force anybody to give their all to Me. But whenever I see anybody close to that position, I will certainly encourage
them, and fight to eradicate the circumstances and potential lures and distractions the Devil will send their way in order to
make them just continue in their usual rut of keeping other things on the top of their list above Me.

79

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Communication

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well
pleased.. Hebrews 13:16
Stay in close touch with Me, pumping down My power, My life & light & instructions, moving & growing in the spirit by
maintaining a live & pulsating, intimate relationship & line of communication with Me.
All I want is to love you & be loved by you, to communicate with you & have you communicate with Me.
The light of open & honest communication shoos away the Devil's darkness & his opportunity to sow any discord or start
any rumors.
Communication won't ever stop or slowly trickle down to a halt or fade out, but it will go ever on, ever increasing, ever
improving, ever resulting in greater fruit, greater wisdom, greater light & greater love, in spite of anything the Enemy might
try to do to make it not look that way! Hes trying to stifle & smother communication that's spiritually edifying in any way
he can.
Although the physical means of communication have improved & multiplied tremendously, you can tell how the quality of
communication has been deteriorating.
His communication is all very one-sided, like someone who only likes to talk about himself, and thus he's also getting
people onto his same, selfish wavelength of only wanting to talk about themselves & all boring each other to death, when
they could find so much life, so much fun & excitement by focusing outward.
If you dont take time to communicate with your King, how can you be a successful ambassador?
Learn to communicate & deal with the issues, instead of letting them rot away, hidden away in the darkness.
If you don't confront them and deal with whatever there needs to be dealt with, if you just wrap everything up in silence &
never talk about it, never address it, you'll suffer for it! You'll reap the consequences of not having communicated openly &
honestly.
Learn to communicate with My help. I'm the Center, the Hub, and you're coming together over Me. I'm the central exchange
point of well-working communication between you, and without Me, you can't do anything, not even communicate!
But if you focus on Me and keep your faces turned toward Me, I will be the One Who unites you, Who will interpret what the
other one is really saying.
Sometimes you find solutions & reach helpful conclusions by just talking and communicating about things.
Communication is really a magical thing. It triggers a lot of answers, opens doors & possibilities you weren't aware of
before.
When you can freely communicate without fears, when there is harmony, mutual respect, and My Spirit can flow from each
of you to the other, as it does from Me to each of you, then the world will also see and get the message, for they will see My
love at work in you (Jn.13:35).
If instead of just talking & blurting out whatever pops into your mind you pray about it or make sure that what you're
saying is going to be inspiring & comes from Me, you'll probably be talking less, but you'll be saying more!
It will move your communication to a higher level, to where you're going to be much more in tune with each other.
Communication is more than just talking. In Heaven, there's a lot of communication done without actual spoken words,
and you could try a little bit of that already now, in this realm.
Let My Spirit permeate your communications
Bathe your decisions, your communications and your actions in good counsel with Me and with each other.
Communication with Me is not just happening in words, it also happens with pictures and the accompanying emotions. I
can grasp & assimilate all youre going through - especially when you give & communicate it to Me - I sympathize with you
& send you My appropriate answer. The more you communicate to Me, the more I can help you. The more you're allowing
Me to take part in your problems, the more solutions I can offer. The more you ask, the more I can help.
You've got to let My heart speak to your heart, in order for your heart to be able to speak to theirs.
If you can communicate in love and just share without inhibitions or fears, you will progress, you will advance and get
further toward the goal. Withholding, withdrawing, holding back and refusal and seclusion will lead to stagnation.
Openness brings you further.

80

In My Father's house, with its many mansions, there is lots of communication happening; spiritual communication, verbal
communications, all kinds of communication. Folks aren't bound to earthly confines & limitations. There's no more need
for "firewalls"... It's all sort of "open source." Everyone's an open source of information and communication.
Just consider yourself part of our heavenly communications network, because you are.
Your little daily interactions and conversations with little people are just as important to the general outcome of your day
as the seemingly more important exchange of communication with "big," important people.
Womens need to talk is like men's need for sex. So, just focus on that there's a need here, for more talking, more
communication...
It's all about interaction with others, about communicating from the heart.
There may come a time when your connection with folks will come to a halt, but there will never be a time when your
communication with Me will be cut off. That's the lifeline that will survive any crisis, and thus it's your No.1 lifeline, the
most important of all.
Who ever said that communication isn't something you have to invest some time and effort into, learning its skills? Who
said that it was going to come out perfect from scratch?
What matters is the gist of what's to be communicated: there is a pupose to life, and most people are oblivious to it, and
it's a large part of your job to let folks know about it.
Communication with the other, the different, that's what it's all about: the re-unification of all things... the restoration of the
peace and unison that was there between My creatures in the beginning, and that's the way it shall be again, so you might
as well get ready for it, and not be so stuck on your own kind only.
Folks are prone to stick to their own kind, unless I allow them not to be satisfied with what they find among their own kind.
For some it is My will to go out and communicate and interact with the other kind; to act as intermediaries,
communicators, mediators, peacemakers, ambassadors, spokesmen, what have you...
Most of My children aren't interested in communicating with Me, and at times that's the reason why I'm not about to say
much to them, either.
A factor that influences your level and abilities of communication is that sometimes you're quite simply on different
wavelengths. One thing you can do about that is to make an effort to tune in to the other's wavelength.
But what if you feel that you're on a "higher" wavelength than they are, you wonder? Well, if you truly are convinced that
you are on a happier and more inspired wavelength than they are, then you can try to pull them up to yours. That's what
inspiring others is all about.
But that requires some work, since people naturally won't just snap out of their own familiar wavelength and tune into
yours, especially if they have no clue what your wavelength is all about. In order to get them interested, you have to
"broadcast" and "advertise" a little, and let them know what your "station" is all about. You have to "play some of your
music" in order for them to find out whether they like it or not.
It pays to put more emphasis on teamwork, on unity, on communication, doing things together, counseling, planning
things together, etc.
Times are changing and requiring different, more mature attitudes, which require more mature openness in
communication.
This procedure of learning to communicate with Me is going to be vital for you and expedient for your survival in the near
future.
I am the Broadcasting Station that makes all good and true communication possible in the first place, and without using
Me as the Central Exchange, the Main Pivot and Axis on which all your other communication hinges and turns, it isnt
really much more than a bunch of hot air.
Communication with Me isnt always established right from scratch. Sometimes it takes a while until you get there. What
matters is, that eventually you do manage to communicate with Me. It pays to strive to get to know Me during your earthly
life.
Getting to know Me is what its all about, and what better initial way is there, of getting to know someone, than exchange of
words and communication? Words are always good for starters, just like John said, In the Beginning was the Word.
Self-satisfaction is a real stopper and blocker when it comes to abundant communication with Me.

81

Im also teaching you personally through the school of life and your experiences, all that you have to go through, your
trials and lessons these are all ways in which I communicate and interact with you.
Youre giving and receiving at the same time. Its that flow that comes to pass in communicating. You pass on something
to others, but as soon as you take that step, its My Spirit that flows through you, and youre actually just giving what I
dictate.
The Devil is trying to discourage you from reaching out to communicate because he knows that would be the end of his
scheme.
Communication is a killer of Satans schemes, thats why he tries to fight communication between you, and also with Me,
tooth and nail. Communication is his dilemma, his nemesis. He cant stand it, because it is bound to expose his scheme
sooner or later and reveal just how ridiculous all those lies and suspicions were that he was trying to sow in your minds
about each other.
Communication will shed light into each others minds about how each of you really feel.
Bringing in that light will diminish the Enemys abilities to operate in the darkness and there sow his seeds.
The sooner youll have learned to truly rely on your communication with Me for your survival, the stronger & better off
youre going to be then.
The essential communication is the spiritual communication, even if it may not seem to be getting you anywhere in this
world.
In reality, it is much more important and crucial in keeping you alive and going, and successfully so, than any physical
means of communications ever could.
Its your prayer-, praise- and prophecy-line that keeps you alive and kicking, more than your telephone line, your internet
connection, or even the power lines that supply you with electricity.
Youve been dependent on those physical connections for practically your whole life, and its not so easy to make the
transition of switching to Spirit Power, but thats basically what this whole lesson of Flesh Vs. Spirit amounts to.
Prayer is communication of the most efficient kind in existence that is available to man, and not only that, but its also a
device that will enhance and improve all your other communications with your fellow humans as well.
Prayer oils the machinery of communication in your life with the oil of My Spirit and thus helps it to operate better and to
flow more smoothly, and to flow in the direction of My will.
Step One in discipleship is receiving the instructions, and Step Two is getting the machinery of well-oiled communication
going through prayer.

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Correction & Discipline

Whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives (Hebrews
12:6)
Treasure My lashes of love for the compliments they are, without fearing them.
The more you dwell in My Word the better you know your weaknesses, for My Words are a mirror to your soul & an
exposing light of the wickedness & deceitfulness of the heart of man. My Word is a two-edged sword, discerner of
thoughts & intents of the heart, & if you really want to know the truth about yourself, study My Word. In fact, that's the
main reason why most people shun My Word, because it reveals the ugly truth about them. It's not always very uplifting or
encouraging; it's breaking, & a downer at first. But then again, it's like the story of the wayward son who didn't stick it
through the reading of his fathers testament until the good part came.
The good news is that I can deliver you from all the sins & weaknesses & make a new creature out of you.
Whats important is that each correction is done in love, and that all your teaching is an act of love.
The Father purges every branch that it may bring forth more fruit, so, the chastisements, corrections & purgings must
come. He eliminates all blemishes from My bride for Me, so that she may be pure, blameless & spotless before Me, which
is also the main reason for the Tribulation ahead...
Judgment must come, & it must begin with My own house.
It takes humility to take correction in order to serve & follow Me.
I love you as My dear, beloved child & bride, & love it to be gentle & sweet & tender with you. But I also have ordained
it that My people should shepherd each other, & you have to get used to correction.
Your survival in this war depends a lot on the progress you make in your training, and in order to grow, you need
correction.
Correction from Me, although hard to take, brings forth the golden, peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are
exercised thereby (Heb.12:11). Its a matter of exercise, training, being drilled & used to it. Dont shun it. Itll do you so
much good. Learn to appreciate & cherish it & be grateful for it. Its a great humbling factor, the medicine to your soul you
need.
Judgment begins with the house of the Lord, & those who knew their Masters will & did it not will be beaten with many
stripes.
There comes a point when the only love that seems to be successful and able to do the subject justice in getting rid of the
sin, is the love manifested in chastisement.
Consider it a compliment and a token of My love for you, when things are going rough in the physical, because that means
I'm drawing you closer to Me and into My spiritual Realm!
Youre learning precious lessons through My withholding the flow of blessings at the rate you would want it: youre
learning patience, consideration, learning to put Me first in the whole process & to praise Me in spite of the fact that Im not
giving you everything you want, because I know better whats the best for you... Youre learning to communicate about
these issues, which is rather humbling for you, and thus youre also learning greater humility out of all of this, which is
also good.
Thank Me even for My purgings and chastisements, by which I purge you and purify you so that you might bring forth
more fruit.
You must allow Me to correct you in different ways, without immediately assuming that I've forsaken you.
You must view the difficult times in your life differently not as something bad or dreadful, as a sign that I've abandoned
you, but as a token of My extra special care for you.
I'm spending extra time with you, paying extra attention to you in order to mend your flaws, to make you better, enhance
you, make you more beautiful for Me.
I "deal" with those first who are closest to Me. If you're going through rougher times than others, consider it a privilege,
because it means that I'm considering you to be among those who can handle it.
I'm doing something special in your life, and it's nothing to feel bad or abandoned about. I'm right here with you!
Be not surprised that I'm still having to chasten & cleanse you, as long as there are other things that are evidently more
important to you than I am.

83

It is necessary for Me to bring on the night before I can bring back the Spring. It is necessary to bring on the purging
before all is pure again.
You say, "Bring on the good times! Stop all this suffering," but it's necessary for Me to bring on My judgments first. You
must agree with Me on this, you must desire them as something good. You still resist them, and tend to murmur in your
heart against Me for allowing the times to be so rough. But if you would make an effort to see from My vantage point, you'd
see the sense in it.
When you see a spoiled child, you know that what it needs is not more of what he wants, but correction.
I'm asking you to agree with Me that judgments must come, and to pray that I bring on that which I know the world needs
most.
Don't resist My discipline and purging, but trust that it's good for you! Welcome it! Welcome Me with open arms, even if I
bring correction with Me. Dread it not, but cherish it. Be thankful for it, for through it I am making you what you need to
become, not what you are but what you're going to be by My grace, and My chastisement is My grace in this case, My
privilege & special honor I bestow upon you.
Your conduct is of extreme importance, and if you break the rules, if you commit sin, it's going to be judged! There's no
more getting away with it!
Someday you're going to look up to Me & say, "Lord, when You let me get away with everything & you spoiled me & gave
me all my requests, I loved You, but I didn't love You as much as after You pulled out the rod & started chastising me for
my sins and shortcomings."
You will know that I knew best what you needed. I needed to show you that you would never love Me as much by spoiling
you as you would by Me correcting you! I could have never given you enough! You would never have been satisfied, no
matter how many of your hearts' desires I would have granted you.
No matter how much love you would have received, it never would have been enough for you!
You will sing like king David: "Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now have I kept Thy Word. It is good for me that I
have been afflicted that I might learn Thy statutes."
You only learn to truly keep My law of love by the afflictions I'm letting come upon you!
You must learn to look for the good in people! Then it will also not be so hard for you to correct them or tell them about
some of the things they do you consider wrong, because they'll still feel that you love them & consider them a positive
addition & a blessing to your life, not a burden.
I'm testing My brides to see how receptive they are to correction I give them through others.
For a healthy diet, you won't only listen for or read My sweet words of love to you, but also the words of correction &
instruction; the stuff that's naturally a little bit harder for you to chew on, but essential for your spiritual health.
I'm having to purge you of those elements of friendship with the world that make you compromise, ashamed to stand up
for Me before them, because you don't want to lose your popularity with them! You need to get rid of this filth, this dirt, this
virus, or it's going to spread!
Temptations will keep coming & knocking at your door, but it's your choice whether you will succumb to them! It's time to
acquire some spiritual strength & the greatness to resist them, because the repercussions will come, whether they will
seem related to the sin or not!
Whenever there is something going wrong in your life, or not the way things are supposed to be, you can be sure that
there's a cause for it, and a very good reason. If it comes across as if I'm punishing you, there must be a good reason for
it, and you can be sure that this is also out of My great love for you, and that it will work together for your best.
Him that I love much, I will also have to chasten much when they go astray. I'm zealously keeping you from the
contaminations of the world. I want to keep you pure unto Me, and you would also that I keep you thus.
I keep you close to Me and I chasten you because of My great love and care for you. So, rejoice when you fall into divers
temptations, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial and count it all joy if you're often being reproved by the things I
allow to happen in your life as a result of even your littlest strayings. Those things are keeping you in check, they keep you
from straying one inch farther from Me than you would possibly want, and they will make you that what I want you to be!
Sometimes people have to prove that they're mature enough to hold a certain blessing. And if they're not, if they're
allowing their feelings to go haywire with them instead of keeping the priorities straight in their hearts & focusing primarily
on what's truly relevant, namely the advance of My Cause and Kingdom, then they will simply have to forego that blessing.
I won't hesitate to take it away, if it becomes a god before Me to you. If it consumes more time and becomes more of a
hindrance than a help.
You've got to train and discipline those thoughts in the obedience of Me. They try to break loose and run wild, hither,
thither and yon, but you've got to catch them & bring them into captivity, tell them Who's the Boss, and Who they should
obey.
It's almost like pulling a stubborn horse or mule back in the direction you want it to go when it starts to go the other way.
That horse is like your flesh which thinks it can do it without My help & trudge off on his own. So, you've got to pull the
reins & say "No, fella, this way!" That's what you've got to do in order to train & discipline your mind!

84

Everybody needs shepherding. Even when it seems like they're rejecting it. Kids need training & correction, even if they
act as though that's the last thing on earth they may need or want. Many grown-ups aren't better than kids in that aspect...
If things dont look so rosy right now, it is only for your best. It is a form of discipline which is going to result in greater
riches and blessings than physical abundance, a token of My very special love for you.
Be thankful for My corrections & chastisements, for showing you that something is wrong, and that things can't keep
going the same way.
I'd be a bad parent, listening to your whims & giving in to them, instead of letting you experience what you really need.
I and the Father know exactly what each one needs to come to repentance and enlightenment.
Every iniquity is going to be purged, & someday it's all going to be okay.
It's an art to be able to tell people their flaws in the right way, and few possess it...to really confront people eye to eye with
their sins without self-righteous hypocrisy.
Being a shepherd or even simply a brother entails the love and honesty not just to silently accept another's failure, which
you know is going to harm and impede their fruitfulness and happiness for Me, but to courageously and lovingly confront
them about it.
When you choose not to tell people the truth you see about them, you abandon them in some way and give up on them.
You don't believe or have hopes that telling them the truth would do any good, and thus you label them as incorrigibles
and hopeless cases.
It's simply something that My followers are going to have to learn to be more willing to deal with. You can't just ignore a
sickness or disease, nor would anyone ignore the fact that they might need a bath desperately. But when it comes to
spiritual health & cleanliness, people are a lot more slack & tolerant of evil.
That's basically what it's all about: people's individual tolerance level of evil. How willing are you to accept evil in your life?
How ready are you for compromise with evil?
If you realize that correction is an important ingredient of love, and confronting someone honestly about something
you see they're doing wrong is a real token of true love, then your attitude to correction will change.
How much nicer is it to be told by a true friend what they think is wrong with you than just the deafening silence of those
who don't want to confront you with it!
Openness brings you further. Openness toward each other, to both learn from and teach each other, to care and be cared
for, to receive and to share, to shepherd and correct, as well as be shepherded and corrected.
Even if it hurts, you must trust that it's a good, godly hurt, the "lashes of love." Even if what I'm telling you hurts you deep
inside, you must trust that I say these things out of love.
Persecution is often an instrument in My hands which I use to make My own church white and to purify. It's the judgment I
bring upon My own house first, for that is where judgment begins. I cannot judge the rest of the world while I let My own
children get away with sin. The world needs a fair God and Judge.
Your self is the first thing you've got to change in order to change the world & make it better. And what other way do I have
to let you know that you need to change; that things are not okay the way things are, but to allow things to go wrong?
Woe to them who are not being chastened & disciplined by Me.
If you desire truth in the inward parts, that's what you're going to keep getting for a while: more not-so-pleasant
revelations about your innermost self, about areas in your life in which you're not quite being the saint you wish or even
thought you were.
How much do you avail yourself of Me, and how much do you still depend on other crutches? Can you let go of those
crutches voluntarily, or will I have to take them away?
Let Me shower your soul with My cleansing, warm and healing light. I am the Light of the world. Are you ready for that
light? Are you ready for My touch, My Words, My truth, My love? Are you really ready for it? And how far will you go? How
much can you handle?
I'm trying to free you and cleanse you from any barriers and hindrances that might stop the flow of My power and light in
your life, from My heart to you. I'm trying to make sure that all your pipes are clean in order to ensure a smooth and steady
flow, a constant stream of My power and current through your life. I'm making sure that the light you give off shines
clearly. Each of My brides should regularly check their own hearts to make sure that everything is working properly and all
the incentives, priorities and motivations are right.
I'm not expecting you to just take people's flaws without doing or saying anything about them. But I'm expecting you to
deal with them, confront them, say something about them, not altogether avoid them! It's called being a shepherd, or your
brother's keeper. That's what it's like to have a shepherd's heart. It involves correcting things that you see are wrong.
There's no way you're going to be able to drill love and kindness into human heads by force or discipline. The only thing
that will teach them love is love.

85

I cannot protect you from the impact and the repercussions of allowing yourself to fall when you ought to know better. I let
you reap and taste the results.
When folks start shifting their priorities away from Me, the results are tangible. That's why certain things happen in your
life that are like warning signs.
What I gave you, I gave you because I knew you could handle it, and if at anytime you do fall into one of the Enemy's traps,
then you know by experience I know how to make you snap out of it real quick, because you've experienced My hand of
correction, and you always feel it upon you.
I've earned your respect, so to speak, and since "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom," I let you continue and
grow on the path of wisdom, past its beginning. Go on, walk down the road of wisdom. It's a "downhill" road, alright, since
it won't take you to any high places in this world. Just like the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God, it's also the
other way around: the wisdom of God is foolishness to men.
So, you've got to get used to that "fool on the hill" image, but as the song says, "he knows that they're the fools"
In the beginning it doesn't exactly evoke positive feelings to be corrected and shown that you were wrong, but in the end,
the sincere and true learners will be thankful.
Sometimes, love hurts. Sometimes there's no way around "the wounds of a friend" or "lashes of love."
Sometimes My children make it so comfortable for themselves in this life that it becomes hard to part with those comforts,
and the thought of having to move on elsewhere becomes unpleasant for them.
When that happens, and you become too attached to this world, then you've backslidden in heart, and it takes My loving
chastisements to get you on the straight & narrow again.
You can only make progress, you can only be corrected on something, if you're willing to admit that negative quality or
trait to yourself, and if you're willing to face it and see it.
There aren't many who allow Me to shine the light of My truth into the deepest and darkest regions of their hearts, like King
David prayed, "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way
in me, and lead me in the way everlasting" (Ps.139:23, 24).
I'm not saying that people should spend time thinking about their sins, but I would recommend that they allow Me to show
them a few of their weaknesses and allow Me to help them overcome them and work on them. And one simply cannot start
overcoming a certain weakness until they become aware of it.
It's something they need to work on!
A coach shows the team its weaknesses.
"Why Shepherding?" You need to be told the things that are wrong with you, since most of the time you simply don't see
them yourself, and accordingly, you'll miss out on full-scale reality somewhat.
People can turn into monsters without correction.
Messes have to be dealt with, that's what shepherding is all about. Whereas nothing is getting sorted out if you just avoid
and ignore the issues.
Are you just going to watch the sheep go astray, simply because you don't want to cross them, and don't like the
confrontation of having to disagree with them?
Some messes simply have to be sorted out. You can't just leave them to rot under the carpet somewhere.... Sin or wrongs
of any kind need to be dealt with, that's what shepherding is all about, and to be neglecting that part of life is to be
neglecting one of your greatest God-given duties.
You've got to go through times of purging; I can't make you what you ought to be without it!
Correction is a part of love. It may be disguised as something painful, but it is love nonetheless, love of a kind which
requires humility in order to be able to receive it... It requires humility to give and to receive it, and where there's no
humility, that part of love simply cannot flourish, and thus problems are bound to occur.
Where there's no readiness to receive correction, there can be no growth, and thus there is only stagnation.
I, the Good Shepherd of your soul, must keep you and protect you, sometimes even by the sheer force of the
circumstances around you. I must close the doors which are not My good and perfect will for you.
The art is being your brother's keeper without coming across like a party pooper or nagger... Quite a challenge, isn't it? But
that's what would determine a good leader & shepherd: someone who doesn't pull his punches, is not a man-pleaser, but
at the same time also remains Spirit-led in the constructive criticism and correction he does share.
When the conquering kingdom is ordained by My hand, then you'd do better to yield to it and to welcome it and accept it,
even as My punishment, My way of disciplining the world for its sins that they are often unaware of, and thus selfrighteously defend their "innocence," which unfortunately only exists in their minds...
When I apply judgment to people: I'm trying to finally get their attention.
The judgment scare is very impressive and sobering, and I'm afraid we're not going to get around it in the long run.

86

What we want most of all is that folks pay more attention to Me, right? You'll be better off if they do, they'll be better off,
and I'll definitely be happier, too!
Pray for something that's going to get their attention and will make them listen up!
If you really do your best and do all you can, it doesn't matter how little you accomplish in numbers.
I know when you have given your all, but I can also tell when there's yet more you could be doing for Me, when there's yet
a bit more of an effort you could make to really stay close to Me and within the lines of My perfect will for you.
And as long as you're not, I have to keep giving you those nudges, those little tokens and signs of correction, My "hohumms," so to speak, in order to wake you up to the fact that things could and should be better.
Discipline is a very important part of love, and without it, there can be no love in today's world. Sin is something that's got
to be dealt with. Just as it wouldn't be love to never change your baby's diaper or never wash him or his clothes, so it isn't
love to just let them get away with sin, either.
I dont want My children to enter My Kingdom unprepared. I dont want those who truly love Me come before Me ashamed,
and thats why Ive got to show them, even in sometimes painful ways, when theyre going the wrong way, or putting too
much emphasis on something else than Me, giving their priorities to another, which in effect means, having another god
before Me, which I cannot tolerate.
The heat of My refining fires, purification and cleansing is a natural part of the process of making out of you an instrument,
a vessel, or item of value for My use. Just like everything else, this pain and this purging also belongs.
My church needs cleansing, purging and chastisement to be made white from all her sins. So, it behooves you to take My
cleansing and chastisements with grace and allow it to happen and yield to it to welcome it, instead of rejecting it and
resisting it.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now have I kept Thy Word. What makes you keep My Word is My afflictions and
chastisements, the cleansing process, the opening of your eyes about the wrongness of your path.
Its an uprooting process, which causes the pain. I cant allow you to become comfortable with your sins, or too friendly
with the world, because friendship with the world is enmity with God (Jam.4:4).
He that soweth to the flesh will reap the corruption of the flesh. If you focus too much on the creation instead of the
Creator and worship whats given instead of the Giver, youre bound to experience the repercussions.
I cant just let you go down the wrong track without doing anything about it. That would be a very irresponsible Parent.
In creating a spiritual diamond, jewel or gem when someone is becoming gold in spiritual aspects, every little lesson
involved in that process is important. The degrees of pressure and heat have got to be just right, the amount of adversity
you experience, before you can be taken out of the fire again to be cooled by My fresh pure waters.
Im not in love with what you do for Me, but with who you are.
Its not the blind type of love that mothers often have for their children, which sometimes fails to see the areas in which
their child would badly needs discipline. I know your impurities will be taken care of by the Father. That is why you are so
upset at Him at times, and it is He toward Whom your anger is directed when you know youre being chastened and things
are going rough for you. But all I see, My love, is who you are in the spirit, and the Father has put that love in My heart for
you that makes Me see only the good; I hardly notice the bad, which I know is only temporal, anyway.
Sensitivity is one of the great hindrances to spiritual growth, because it wont let you take correction as you should and
thus prevents you from growing and learning by it.
Sensitivity-awareness is a vital pre-requisite to spiritual growth. If you realize youre reacting sensitively to correction, then
you must realize that this will endanger your growth and maturation process, unless you choose to fight and overcome it.
Correction and taking it used to be one of the most natural things in the world, but the Enemy has boosted peoples egos
to such levels that taking correction has become something more and more difficult for them, especially in Western
societies where the Devil has been undermining family values for decades, undermining the authority of the head of the
family and his role, undermining the authority of and respect for parents in general, all with the intent to destroy the family
per se.
There comes a time when everyone will have to reflect about their sins and mistakes.
Say you are some kind of a prisoner in the situation youre in. Would you know what youre doing time for? Do you know
why youre there? Are you aware of the mistakes you made, the crimes or sins you have committed, the hurt you have
caused others? Do you think the disciplinary measures might possibly be justified?
Thats basically how it is in life: you encounter unpleasant circumstances, and you consider them unjustified, as if you
deserved better than that. But do you, really? If you believe in My love and justice, cant you also believe and assume that
the circumstances I am allowing to befall you are the precise set that you deserve and need in order to deal with your
mistakes and learn something from them?
The wrong attitude to have would be not seeing your sin and guilt and thus not being able to learn anything out of life and
lifes circumstances.
So, youre having to deal with a set of unpleasant circumstances. What are they trying to teach you?
There will always be forces who will resist change, and who will resist the finger of the prophets pointing at weaknesses.

87

But being a brothers keeper is telling when you see something wrong.
Of course, it also takes that healthy measure of self-criticism and openness and honesty concerning your own mistakes,
otherwise, all that will come across will sound self-righteous.
What makes you real is the suffering I bring across your path without you trying to evade it. You eat it, and you dont
insist on Me having this cup be removed from you, but say, Nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done.
Everybody has hard times and trials and sufferings in My service, but they dont always swallow the depth of all that there
is to learn from them. Not everyone is willing to really face the ugly truths about themselves that have brought their fate
upon them.
To make a difference for Me and be a positive force for good in this world, and not go the way of all flesh & drift down the
stream of personal desire requires discipline and sacrifice. You cannot just allow yourself to be pampered like a baby and
still think youre being a revolutionary Christian!
Every time you correct a child, or anyone for that matter, its really a token of love (Heb.12:6), as opposed to lazily just
letting them do as they please and ignoring the matter.
Its the sacrifice of love that you make in order to help them do better and the one part you can do in order to change the
situation for the better and correct it. Thats what correction amounts to: situation improvement. By approaching certain
people on the possibility of improving their behavior, youre ultimately improving your situation.
If you refuse to do it, the situation remains the same, or might possibly get worse, and it proves youre not much of a
leader, shepherd or parent, and basically shows a pitiful lack of conviction and courage.
Just as youre finding out that your children in reality appreciate the boundaries youre setting for them, and really
appreciate the correction theyre receiving, so it is with most people: they want to be told the truth, even if it hurts. Of
course, if you can deliver it with the least amount of pain possible, then thats all the better.
My silence makes you think.
Thats a neat feature and advantage of silence. It makes you think. It gives you room to think, for a change, and gives you a
break from all the endless noises and distractions which are trying to achieve just the opposite.
Silence gives Me room to move. Remember that its the space in-between the objects that does it. So it is in the acoustic
realm. The power lies within the empty, silent spaces between all the clamor and clatter.
When I get you to the point where in silence you contemplate and realize that all youve been up to lately was vanity, then I
get another chance to present to you My program, which, granted, may be a lot more low-profile than all the rah-rah and
ado of self-advertisement and aggrandizement.
Its back from the pinnacle of the temple of temptation to the hill of the humble cross, the true reality of what this world has
to offer for every one of My true followers
Its hard to disappoint Me, since I usually know ahead of time what youre going to be up to. But dont be surprised if
theres going to be a period of silence from Me, if thats what it takes to bring you back to your senses and make you think.
Some of the circumstances you experience cause you to reflect negatively on Me, and you derive from them that I must not
love you anymore or not as much, and that I am punishing you for something. But even if that were the case, you must
remember that even My chastisements are an act of My love for you, and if Im allowing certain of My blessings to be
withheld from you, or their flow to be reduced, then youve just got to trust Me that that is also part of My love for you, and
that I know what Im doing. You can rely on My wisdom.
Certain things just require consequences and action taken.
Youve got to repent and change your ways. Youve got to move on to a higher level.
Experiencing the fruits and results and consequences of evil is necessary for mankind in order to learn their lesson.
Sometimes I have to discard an unfruitful branch in order to purge and prune My tree, so that it will be ready and stronger
to bear more fruit. It may seem like a loss, temporarily, but time will usually tell and reveal that that which I have taken
away was necessary in order to make room to bring in new and better fruit.
I do with what I have while its available, but when the time comes, and a branch grows old, its wiser to cut it off and make
room for new fruit to grow. The pruning is painful, but the future fruit that will be gained through it will more than make up
for it.
No chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous. Nevertheless, afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit
of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
I often give you what you want, rather than what you need sometimes, because I most of all want you to know that I love
you and to be sure of My love for you above everything else.
Once thats established, I know I can also give you a little needed correction, because youll be able to handle it then and
also receive it as a token of My love.
It takes wisdom not to fall into the trap of carnal temptations, and usually that wisdom is only acquired by the experience
where that sort of temptation will lead the ultimate lack of real satisfaction and the disappointment and failure to keep
what it promised, or simply the price you have to pay for it in the long run.

88

Its not as though some people are 100% gold and the others 100% fake, but the content of gold varies in each one,
depending on how much of My refining process they have allowed Me to put them through.
Becoming gold is what life is all about, and the more you have experienced the refining fires of My chastisements, the
closer to the Real Thing your life will be, and the more of Me it will resemble.
The problem with todays society is that correction has sort of become a taboo, and instead of training their children and
young people in receiving correction, and allowing them thus to become refined, they just basically let them rot in their
own stew, meaning that many miss this process and original purpose in life completely, and accordingly wind up with
nothing much to show forth at the end of their road.
It takes effort to bring every thought into the captivity of the obedience of Christ. The mind wants to run free, like a wild
horse.
It takes a strong, skilled and experienced rider to tame it and bring it into submission. An obedient mind is like a welltrained and reliable horse.
So, in order to train it, you have to bring it to Me faithfully for training classes where it can learn the rules and etiquette
of My Domain, in order to render you a useful knight for My Cause and Kingdom.
Often horses are ruled by fear and mistrust, and they have to learn trust for their master. They need to find out by
experience that their master is a reliable source of food and care for them, even better than if they run off and rely on their
own strength and wit. Other horses are ruled by a stubborn and angry temper, and yet others can get a little lazy, almost
like a mule, but I can bring out the best in each one, if Im given a chance to work with them.
Of course, its not just your mind I need, but your heart also. Once your heart feels at home and at rest with Me, your mind
will eventually follow.
You have to tell your mind whos the boss, similar to the way you have to let your child know, since otherwise it will just do
whatever it wants, and obedience becomes harder and harder then.
You can only train others as well as you have trained yourself, and you can only convince others of the benefits of yielding
to Me, if you have yielded yourself to Me first.
When your mind wants to run off, give Me your heart, and I will whisper into it and cause your whole spirit to be steady. I
will be your Heart Whisperer.
The limitations and boundaries are for your own good. You may tend to disagree, but you will see in the end that it was so,
and youll be very thankful for them.
Sometimes you have to save people from themselves and from the atrocities they would commit against themselves, and
you cannot just let them go down the road to ruin.
I have no other choice but to take the blessing away from you again, if it threatens to take the place of the Blesser in your
life.
I test you to see whether you are able to handle that extra blessing or not, and when it becomes a factor that stands
between you and Me and threatens to separate us and drive us further apart, then I will have to eliminate it again, and
simply take it away
Every now and then Ive got to remind you of Whos No.1 in your life, even if its by the painful process of removing some
of those blessings that you tended to allow to usurp that place.
If I am correcting you and allowing you to pass through times of Gethsemane and purging, it means Im working
intensively on and in your life. Somethings happening there. Im doing something. And youre just going to have to trust
Me for it, that its going to be good.
Life has its ways of castigating you for your sins of thinking you were doing so great
You were doing better when you knew that you were not doing so hot
I want to make sure you know that its not because of your own merit that things have worked out.
It wasnt so much because you were on the right track as it was because I love you. It wasnt as much due to your own
goodness as it was due to My love for you.
The question you will want to answer with a definite yes some day when youll get Here will be, Have I done all I
possibly could? And in order to make sure that this will be the case, I have to draw your attention in sometimes painful
ways, granted to the areas in which you could improve and that are hindering you from reaching that goal.
You could be doing more and giving more, and so, thats what Im drawing your attention to, and Im forcing you to
confront this fact and deal with it and see what youre going to do about it
Consider this a special opportunity to learn some special lessons in an intensive way, with special attention from Me, even
if the attention is manifested by the heat of the fires of My purging judgments
This calamity is there for a higher purpose, and some day you will see that meaning and purpose and will be happy and
rejoice over it as a token of My wisdom and My love for you.
Right now all you can see and feel is the pain, but I promise you, there will come forth good fruit from it, and you will come
out better for it.
You must not be short-sighted and just look at the immediate, the pain before you, the loss, but you must look ahead at My
higher purpose in all of this, and trust Me that its out there, and you will see it, find it and experience it and benefit from it!
Dont look back, look ahead!

Disciplinary measures like prison terms usually take time, and are measured in time youre doing for whatever wrong
has been committed. Obviously, seriously erroneous behavior patterns cannot be changed effectively except over time,
and applying long-term disciplinary measures that really drive the point home, make the lessons sink in, and bring about
definite, lasting changes.
I avail Myself of your fellow humans as the most effective administrators of these measures, to discipline you, teach you,
straighten you out and to help Me teach you lessons that you would never ever learn from all the theory and friendly wise
counsel in the world.
The pain other humans inflict on you unfortunately is a much more effective teacher than anything I could ever tell you in a
life-time.
Being useless and not able to be used by Me is not the worst thing for Me, but for you. You will want to bring forth fruit in
this life in order to be fulfilled. Thats just the way folks are made
And as I have promised, each branch that is not bearing fruit will either be taken away or purged, so that it does bring forth
fruit.
You wonder what on earth might be My plan and intention in allowing all this misery to happen in your life. And certainly
youre not the first who does.
After all, anyone would prefer a life of ease and of joy and of happiness. So, why allow suffering?
Well, because its these hard times that really teach you something.
The good and fun times, well, theyre just that: good and fun times.
But when the heat is on and youre going through trials and troubles and tribulations in life, thats when you really learn
something.
You count the hard times not as gains, but losses. But I see it the other way around.
When I need to chasten you, then it really only happens in love and out of love and for your own sake.
There are those who always tend to choose the easy way and path of the least resistance. Since I know that that choice
ultimately isnt good for them or their character, how can I prevent them from spoiling themselves, becoming too softened
and pampered? You leave Me no other choice, and I think you agree with Me that some purging is needed in your life, if
youre going to be the kind of loving partner of someone that you would want to be.
Yes, the wind and sea are rough that I am sending your boat out upon, but only this way will you ever reach any significant
destination.
In order to make any difference at all - Me in your life, and you in this world - this is very necessary. Weve got to do this.
Weve got to get through this. Every one of My men, women, prophets, shepherds and world changers has had to go
through similar tests and breakings.
The only One Who is going to be able to effectively make a better man out of you am I, and precisely with the help of
breaking and sufferings and circumstances of the kind youre going through.
Human evil, sin and foolish, superficial attitudes, all that dirt is too tough and sticky to just be swept away with some gush
of water! It needs some serious scrubbing!
So, why not stop complaining and whining and just allow this process to go over you, and let Me have My way, making of
you the white, shiny and clean person that I know youd want to be?
A few honest tears havent killed anyone yet, they have a very purging and purifying effect, and if you ask Me, you deserve
them.
Youre not going to be crying forever, dont worry! But while it lasts, just be confident that those tears are going to fulfill
their purpose, and serve to make you change and want to change, and never want to go back to some of your old ways
again!
You have brought this sorrow upon yourself, and in order to avoid such pain in the future, youre simply going to have to
change your act! And Im helping you with it. Im helping you to seriously learn whatever lessons there are to be learned
from all this, so that you hopefully will never make the same mistake again.
Lovingly helping others to overcome their weaknesses and thus helping them to grow is precisely what being a shepherd
and teacher means. After all, a teacher is there to improve the knowledge and perception of his students, to help them to
do things better, in order for them to be better equipped to meet the challenges in life, which also means correcting those
things that arent quite perfect yet.
Its usually only after special, earth- or life-shaking events that folks, especially men, will take and devote serious time to
the undertaking of having their lives thoroughly examined, corrected and to make whatever changes are necessary.
It takes drastic measures at times to get them to do what Ive been asking, begging and repeatedly telling them to do all
along
It takes some shaking up for folks to finally get serious about it and to finally put first things first, give priority and honor
where it is due.
Words like correction and chastisement have become extremely unpopular in this day and age, but that doesnt change
much about the fact that man needs to learn to bear the consequences of his own choices and actions, period.

90

Unfortunately, often it is only the fear of judgment or of things going wrong that will give people the incentive to seek
change or improvement, without which there is stagnation, the Jonah Syndrome. The threat of impending doom seems
to do what no measure of love and sweetness can accomplish in some peoples lives, and thats one reason why
correction is so important. (2011:4)
I must allow you to reap the consequences of your actions to some extent. Youve got to find out by your own experience
what sort of thing is genuinely helpful, and which are not. (2011:8)
I deal with My followers weaknesses in the here and now, while most folks who are untouched by My chastisements will
have to deal with all that stuff later, in the Hereafter. Thats another reason why it says Judgment begins with the house of
God. I first must discipline My own, before I start purging the rest of the world.
Consider it part of the privilege of being a son of God: a perhaps not much appreciated one, but nevertheless equally
precious one to Me as any of the (other) benefits.
You may not see it as such (a benefit), but its just like many others of My blessings that often come in disguised form into
your life. You may not appreciate it much, but you will later, when you will see the results and the fruit that will have come
from it.
Its hard to be truly happy as long as youre selfish or lazy, and the most effective way for Me to deal with those traits is for
Me to rub them under your nose in concentrated form for you to deal with in another person. I give you some of your own
medicine, or rather, of your illness and virus, so to speak, and it serves as some sort of antidote. You simply dont want
any more of it after that. Its simply the most effective method. (2011:90)
Its good you repent from your bad deeds, and you have to admit that its the punishment of the bad times that befall you,
when you do. It definitely shows how desperately you need a major change. You cant always blame Me for the not so nice
things happening to you! You have to deal with them, remember that if they come, they must be from the enemy, and just
as there was with Job, there must be a reason for Us to permit those. Maybe to ultimately make a better man out of you
So, take it somehow, as it comes, and dont just blame it all on Me! Remember, there was a reason for Adam and Eve to
have to leave the Garden of Eden Paradise and it was one that they had caused themselves!
So, remember that the not-so-hot things happening to you are always caused by yourself, your own bad decisions, and
caused by something you better hadnt done! Disobediences of His children have got to be punished and dealt with
somehow. So, keep it in mind, and remember that theres always something youll reap for what you sow!
I know, theyre hard times for you now, but instead of blaming them all on Me, it might be better for you to remember that
there must be something that made you deserve them! (2015:115)
Chastisement from Above is a symbol of love, even if it may not seem much like it! Its to bring out the best in you through
repentance and learning to do better than you did before, and to learn the lessons from your mistakes, failures and
shortcomings. Of course, not very pleasant to have to deal with the results of your own failures, and a humbling and
painful experience, but well, thats the way to learn the lessons from former mistakes.
Even if it all hits you like a painful spanking and chastisement if you can humbly accept it as something you deserve, itll
definitely serve you more than rejecting it.
Spankings for ungodly behavior are painful. Thats the way it goes. Its not supposedly fun to be corrected for sinful acts.
Eventually theres a time folks have to learn from their mistakes
Failure has to teach something and its not just a procedure of fun.
Keeping the heavenly life thereafter selfishly for yourself without sharing it with others is not something I can in any way
approve of without punishment handed out accordingly! (2015:188)

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Creation

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being
understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that
they are without excuse (Romans 1:20)
It isnt a bad thing to want to know how I created the World and yet, when it comes down to it, it all remains a matter of
faith and what you or they are willing to put faith in: whether it be Me, My Word and the supernatural, or the finite
reasoning of man.
Youve got to have some kind of contrast against which you can see the light. It works like this in many other aspects of
My creation.
Independence from Me is as if the Earth would declare its independence from the sun & drift off into space. Ive written it
all over My handiwork: you need Me, you cant do without Me any more than a fish can do without water, a plant can do
without light, no more than you can live without air: without Me, you can do nothing!
With all their knowledge about the intricacy of My creation, of how complex everything is, they still refuse to accept Me,
just because that would be too simple...
I am the Great ANYHOW! My specialty is to do things in spite of the unfavorable circumstances & against all odds. The
very existence of life is a proof of that. I am He Who creates something out of nothing; in fact, everything.
There is always an upgrade & an improvement on each of My creations in the physical! Everything down there, on Earth, is
only a shadow of a heavenly reality... an image of something greater to come.
The drawing power, the suction, the empty space you create in you for Me to fill is the way to happiness & fulfillment. I can
answer every question if youll but ask, solve every problem you put Me in charge of, fill any need & empty space you open
for Me! All nature is full of examples of this principle: Every creature seeks her mate to unite with, so together they can
bear fruit.
Everything is a sample of how My love, My heart seeks you & yearns for union with you.
Most people never even acknowledge My presence nor existence at all, blatantly denying the possibility of My existence in
spite of the plain evidence all over My creation. Imagine your children just simply refusing to acknowledge your very
existence! No, Ive got no father! I simply came into being by an unplanned, random process called evolution... If you
think you have reasons to be frustrated sometimes, all I can say is Welcome to the club!
Every day is an intricate new creation of Mine, full of many planned & coordinated processes, innumerable activities
behind the scenes...
When theres a need, it creates a vacuum. Its like the darkness that cries for the light, the cold that longs for My warmth,
the question that waits for My answer, the problem which yearns for My solution.
You think the Spirit realm has little to offer to the physical? The physical realm is only a product of the Spiritual.
Everything you see, feel, touch, is a creation of the Spirit. God is a Spirit, and just because spirit to you means
invisible, you mentally restrict & minimize Our potential to near impotent, instead of what it really is: omnipotent!
Nobody's interested in their Creator, nor in finding out what He's got to say, they're all too enwrapped & busy with creation,
trying to keep it functioning. They need to get back to their Maker & refer to the Manual or call the service hotline, but it
won't even occur to them.
Take a hint from Me, the Creator of all things, and Master of precision: you'll get more done, and you'll do it a lot better, by
not ignoring the little details! Details are important! Tiny little herbs & spices can completely change the entire flavor of a
big meal. Tiny little strokes & touches make the big picture come to life. Tiny little thoughts gear the actions of people, big
& small, and tiny little words can make the difference between life & death... Tiny little atoms & molecules, the building
blocks of the entire, gigantic universe... Tiny little sperms & egg cells uniting into a new human being, consisting of
innumerable more little cells.
To Me, every little detail matters. Every little hair on your head, every little sparrow, every little word you say.
Even all of eternity consists of tiny little moments, as does the ocean, of tiny little drops... One of these days you'll just see
how much I am into details: every man & woman being faithful in doing just the tiny little thing they can do.
Worship of creation isn't going to bring the same satisfaction and fulfillment as the worship of the Creator.

92

The tale that there aren't any absolutes is just one of those poisonous lies of the Devil. Just because he put his own curseresulting filter of "less-than-perfect" over My creation, in order to hide the perfect from man's view, doesn't mean there is
no perfect!
Since man didn't want to whole-heartedly embrace the perfect, but rather chose the option of doing his own thing & be his
own "perfect enough," I allowed life to be imperfect, with Me and the perfection of the Spirit World being invisible; in other
words, with man groping around through life blind to all that's perfect.
They're starting to see the mathematical impossibilities of all the perfection in creation to have occurred by itself. But it
still doesn't cause many of them to stop & pause long enough to find out what I've got to say. As long as there are other
things they're more interested in. How about you? How interested are you?
The light and power of love are not exactly the same form of energy as electricity, but it's very much like it. Electricity is its
physical counter part, and an illustration of the even greater, spiritual Power of God's Love.
Things break. They deteriorate. They don't get better or improve by themselves, as the evolutionists claim.
The only way to grow is in the spirit, because your natural man decreases. You have to sow to the immortal, the spirit.
Nothing in this world lasts forever. In fact, time is running out. Your natural stature is diminishing, deteriorating. The only
way you can actually gain something that will last is by giving away what I've given you.
All of creation is connected and intertwined, the separations are only temporal.
The term "blindness" really describes the human refusal to see just how much I am engaged in caring for My creation.
Seek My mind, and My ways of seeing things: the beauty in the imperfect, in the humble and childlike, and escape the
thinking of the carnal mind, which will only criticize, belittle and complain about all the innumerable little imperfections you
see in My creation!
Many people see the Devil in sex, just because he happens to use it. The question is, who created sex? Me or the Devil? I
did. You can see Me in everything if you look hard enough. It's a greater weakness to see the Devil in everything than
trying to portray Me and My story even if there are elements in your portrayal that the Devil uses, too!
The Scribes & the Pharisees even saw the Devil in Me! They accused Me of being a devil, and so the modern Scribes &
Pharisees of the churches accuse those with greater freedom than what they have, of the same.
Open your eyes! There's so much more to see! Everywhere! In My creation, even in a simple story! The world is full of
wonders! Blessed are they who see them! How miserable are those who see the Devil in everything!
My story is everywhere! There are those who decry astrology & astronomy, when My Word clearly says that "the heavens
declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork... there is no speech nor language where their voice is
not heard..." (Ps.19:1,3).
You were thinking of the loss of information in micro-evolution, and remembered that you read in a news article that fruits
and vegetables are not as nutritious anymore as they used to be. They may look better through all that genetic
"enhancement" & manipulation, they may in some cases even taste better, but they actually aren't any better as far as
nutritive value and health factors are concerned. And you were wondering how this coincides with people, how they
actually seem to look better on the surface, almost as if to prove evolution right, but that they aren't any better when it
comes to true and lasting values. They've actually lost a lot of quality & "information" when it comes to that.
Although the best is yet to come in the world to come, as far as this momentary age is concerned, everything that has
derived from the originals has deteriorated somewhat in the copying process. While some things seem to have gotten
better on the surface, technology has improved, progressed & developed, & so have commodities, enabling people to live
at much greater ease than ever before, which again enables them to put much greater emphasis on superficial things like
their looks than ever before, which may give a certain appearance of genuine improvement; when it comes to a good, deep
look beneath the surface, there is actually no genuine improvement of life there. As people are finding out: with all the
devices they're inventing to save time, yet they always seem to be running out of time & seem to have less time than ever.
That's why it pays to see things the way I see. That crummy looking root or vegetable your forefathers ate may have well
been a much greater source of vitamins, minerals, & thus health and nutrients, than all that "too-good-to-be-true" almost
plastic-like food they sell nowadays. And their hard and rough life-style may have rendered them greater genuine
happiness than all of today's technology & gimmicks can give you.
A lot of people may think that they are better than their forefathers, that they may have "evolved" & progressed, but an
objective, un-biased look and comparison might tell a different story, in which many of those who have lived before would
shake their heads at the arrogance of today's population, to actually fall for such a gross deception to think that they have
improved, when, according to lasting standards & values, it is rather plain that man has deteriorated.
In all living organisms, there are good things that work toward the furtherance and enhancement and procreation of life,
and there are negative things, which also have their time and purpose, such as bacteria & other parasites, which are
present a-plenty in any body, and just show that there is a war to be fought.
Those bacteria are not your actual enemy, but help to keep and make your body strong for the actual fight.
The entrance of My Word giveth light, it creates the difference between that darkness of an empty & meaningless life and
one that sees purpose and fulfillment in everything. Everything is orchestrated by Me, everything visible is only a physical
result of some spiritual truth, and thus there is a plan behind it.

93

I'm urging you to see the invisible cause of the visible more, to open up your spiritual eyes, the eyes of faith. If you see the
physical as a result of the Spiritual, then it simply takes on a lot more meaning.
You'll know that nothing is without guidance, nothing is by chance; it's all going somewhere, and thus you develop much
greater faith and trust with which to walk through every day of your life, and which you can then impart to others, too.
Every day should be a vast scope and canvas of opportunities for you, of things to learn, and things to pass on. It
shouldn't ever just be a struggle for survival.
The forces of gravity, speed and light, etc., are all parts of one great force, namely Mine, and you can avail yourself of it
through prayer!
There's a lot more detail to everything. It takes time to get an accurate picture of everything. I don't paint in black & white.
My palette of colors is as infinite as My creation. There will never be a lack of surprises, of new discoveries, of new,
unexpected twists and turns in events. You will never be able to say, "Now I know everything there is to know..."
There will always be whole new worlds and dimensions to discover, new angles from which to see things, new additions to
make your scope wider, which will burst your former limits.
The Devil is so scared of you, fighting you like crazy because he knows he's going to lose victims out of his clutches of
hell, and they're going to have heaven happening in their lives. That ingredient of heaven is like a poisonous, deadly virus
to his kingdom, his system, his Matrix! It totally busts it! It's like what the Spring does to the snow! It breaks the cold spell
of winter & just makes it all melt away, and everything becomes possible again: where there was only cold and grey, all of
a sudden, life springs up again everywhere!
You can be like that to those people! You can be like the sun of Spring to them!
Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground & die, it abideth alone... On its own, the grain of wheat doesnt do much good.
And down there in the darkness it doesnt see, feel or perceive much but its immediate surroundings: the earth & the
worms, an occasional mole or bug. But if it absorbs the heat of My sunshine & the waters of My rain & lets its shell become
soft, something inside starts growing, which finally wants to burst through the shell of your former confines. And thats the
moment when your old man dies to make room for something new, something greater than your former self.
And as you grow steadily heavenward, finally you see the light & eventually find yourself side by side with many, countless
other stalks of grain. Your roots intertwined with theirs, you sway & dance in the wind in unison, youre not an individual
entity anymore, alone no, that lone self & former you has died youre one with the harvest now, ready to bring forth
much fruit.
Sometimes the solution consists in separating two factors so that we can get a closer look at them individually. Progress &
growth comes by parting cells. In order to bring forth growth, the cell needs to divide & multiply. "Except a grain of wheat
fall into the ground & die, it abideth alone. But if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." So it is also with cells. The
disintegration of things, the spreading of things, the partition of things, especially of living things, is one of the great
secrets of life & of the universe. First 2 cells get together: the sperm & the egg. They unite as one & form a new entity.
Then that has to part many times & develop into a new baby.
For the baby to grow, you're going to have to do some splitting. Otherwise the baby will die. No new life that could have
been. No joy brought to all those it would have touched. Just the sadness that death & stagnation brings.
The smaller unit has to die in order to give way to a greater new unit... That's the secret & principle on which all living
things are founded. Cell partition.
Bringing forth new fruit is not a process that can be achieved in a rush. You dont just pop a seed in the ground and plop
an new tree or plant stands there, but first the seed has to remain in the soil, be moistened & warmed, until its shell grows
soft & breaks open. Then a tender shoot pokes out its tiny white tip at first, then it grows, and after a while you see the first
tiny leaf on the surface. I specify in quality fruit. Quantitys alright, but quality is better.
All these things from My hands: milk & honey. And yet, so many, so often take it for granted. They dont see the myriads of
miraculous processes needed in order to get these things to you: the precision in the exact right distance of the sun from
the Earth in order for plants to grow... water... people never realize what a miracle water is. They just take it for granted &
waste it, waste it, waste it... But soon, all this flow of blessings will come to an abrupt halt, & everything willfully wasted
now will be willfully wanted then.
Consider My heavenly light that source of energy you need in order for your spiritual flower to really come to full bloom &
blossom into its full beauty! So far, you have felt its warmth & it has pulled you up above the ground from the depth of the
cold, dark Earth; you have soaked in My water & rain, but now you must open up your petals fully & look fully into My
wonderful face!
Have you watered your little plants? Have you cared for your garden? Have you been faithfully sowing My seeds into their
hearts?
No ocean or mighty river without the tiny little drops of water, or the even tinier water molecules, and likewise, no greater
love than this without all the tiny little, but consistent & constant manifestations thereof.
No babies without tiny little, invisible-to-the-naked-eye sperms & eggs, no body without tiny little cells... Its the tiny little
faithful actions & deeds of love that make Love the greatest thing in the universe.

94

I created the animals to illustrate human behavior in many ways, but to base your knowledge about humans on the
assumption that human behavior stems from the animals, is not exactly conducive to genuine wisdom, nor real solid
knowledge about the human psyche.
Unfortunately, by denying the true origin of the human spirit, man is often somewhat reduced to that animal state in which
they believe they are in the first place, for "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." If he believes he is an animal, an
animal he shall be. And the more people there are walking about, thinking they are animals, the more it seems to confirm
that delusion. The "herd instinct," "Monkey see, monkey do."
Although My signs are everywhere, and My handwriting is seen all over creation, it is only few who are able to see it. Only
few are able to make out My path, because the majority choose to look out for other things. People primarily focus on the
things they are interested in, and My still small voice of truth that promotes the path of humility is inaudible to the majority.
Man was the master over creation and over the animal world, and when he turned from Me, he was leading his entire
kingdom away from Me. The result was enmity. That's what the Enemy does, he sows enmity wherever he can: enmity
between people, even hostility between brothers and sisters, enmity between animals, and enmity between man and
animals. If you follow the Enemy and his way, you'll reap enmity.
The reversal of that process is My way of friendship, of love, of peace, the original way, it's "back to the Garden." Back to
the place where all is in harmony with each other, with its Creator. They way of union, of unity.
The machinery of life is very delicate and intricate, and you wouldn't want to mess with certain factors, or you'll disturb
and unravel the equilibrium of life.
The secret of the beauty of creation lies in the exact proportions.
Some folks think I just slapped things like air, water and earth together, nothing much to it; but each of them are very
carefully concocted combinations of ingredients following strict measurements and an exact balance, otherwise the result
wouldn't have been the same.
The sun is a very good illustration of what each of you can be: either a source of life, or a scourge. It all depends on the
right balance, and whether you agree to make sure to always abide by My rules and parameters: the exact distance and
timing I have laid down for earth's rotations both around its own axis and around the sun, etc.
You are My stars. You're the stars of My show, and you become, bringers of life in this world, sources of words of wisdom
and the pivots on which hinges the equilibrium of all, without which there would be a false balance which would cause
everything to collapse.
Once you've become a sun, you don't revolve around them anymore, your path isn't dictated by their rules anymore, or
whatever circumstances they dictate on you, but you become the pivot around which things revolve, you determine the
rules and the course of events.
Pressure is one of the physical forces in the universe that get things moving, and without pressure, there's stagnation.
There are 2 sides to nearly everything. There is a good and a bad side to even all apparently bad things, as well as to
seemingly purely good things. That's one of the side effects of the curse, that everything has a shadow side to it, a dark
side. Even sunshine: you get too much of it, and it can ruin the crops, or your health, and cause whole lakes to evaporate...
Chalk it up to the great party pooper of all times to see to it that even the most perfect aspects of My creation have some
drawback to it, a result of the curse.
Even water, as necessary it is to make all life possible, can also drown you and bring death.
Too much air can pop the balloon or - in the form of a storm - tear down your house.
It's one of the mysteries of creation: the dual nature of things.
No wonder some folks cooked up the Yin and Yang philosophy, because that dual nature and coexistence of good and evil
seems to be prevalent and permeate all of creation.
What they don't see is that it is a result of the curse which man's choice to believe Satan, rather than obeying Me, has
brought into the world, and that this may be the nature of things presently, and temporarily, but it is not the order of things
according to My eternal laws. The darker side of things is programmed for elimination, as impossible as that may sound to
the carnal mind.
We have to strengthen and fortify the cell from its core, before you can consider cell partition, multiplication and growth.
You've got to establish and make sure you've got a healthy cell and unit first, before you're thinking of making that
organism grow.
There is such a thing as "natural selection," only that nature itself doesn't do the selecting, I do.
Of course, I've got oodles of helpers to join Me in that endeavor, which aren't recognized by scientists, because they can't
see'em, and so, because they can't see what's going on, they accredit it all to "nature." They don't recognize that nature
has a Source. They don't realize that there's more to nature than meets the eye, because of the invisible, driving and
creative force behind nature.
Those scientists have been looking for signs of intelligence in outer space, when the vastest source of intelligence was to
be discovered right at home, on the level of the tiniest living unit known to man.
There's a time for everything under the sun, and the time for exploring the universe hasn't really arrived yet before you've
explored your own little universe at home.

95

There is a certain order required at every basic level of the universe, and at the basis of every smallest unit, in order for
things to work. If you just allow them to decay and deteriorate, there won't be progress, but regress; you'll fall behind
instead of making headway.
You will have to take care of things in order for them to continue to develop in a positive, favorable and progressive way. If
you neglect them, there'll be chaos, no order, and things will fall apart.
Energy plus matter plus information makes life possible. You've got the matter, but then you've got to invest some energy
in a well-planned, organized, intelligent way, otherwise there will be no new life, just a slow decay of the old.
You've got to look at Me first! Without looking at Me first, there's no use looking anywhere else, because all you'll see will
only drag you down. So, come & have a good, long look at Me!
All those scientists looking at creation without Me on their minds stare out into space and figure that the earth must only
be one random, coincidental little planet among the vastness and diversity of the sea of stars and planets. They look at
"the evidence" on earth and figure it all must be millions of years old. What comes out is a worldview of vast, endless
nothingness and meaninglessness: no plan, no Planner; no purpose, because there is no purpose Giver.
If your focus is primarily on Me, you'll look at the dinosaurs and won't see "millions of years," and out into space and won't
see the earth as a random speck of dust, but you'll see My hand in it all. Sure, you may be tempted to wonder, "Lord, what
on earth did You make dinosaurs for?" But you'll reach the conclusion that like everything, I have also made them to
illustrate certain things: some people are like huge, greedy monsters, devouring everything in their path. Some of those
giants are peaceful and slothful, and yet can be dangerous, simply because of their weight and size. My whole creation is
full of drastic differences in size, and just because some things are way bigger than you are, or some stars are way bigger
than your planet, doesn't make you or earth less relevant. Let it teach you that size isn't everything! What makes you really
precious is what you're made of.
A huge piece of rock or mountain may be impressive, but still not be worth as much as a fraction of its weight and size in
gold. It's all about finding the true treasures among the vast rocks in this life.
People are always impressed by size, neglecting the beauty and importance of little things and thus coming to wrong and
erroneous conclusions. More is sometimes less. A tiny diamond is more valuable than a ton of rocks. Are you smart
enough to spot the true treasures in life among all the impressive, but often worthless big and huge things?
The genetic information for any complete life-form is already there in its simplest state. Although the outward appearance
may change over time, the essence, the gist, the information in its genes, does not change.
The genetic code of God, so to speak, is permanently good and reliable, nothing can change about that, which is the
essence of the message, I, the Lord, change not. You can count on Him, trust in Him. Hes not going to turn bad on you.
With Him, it can only get better.
My creation is all else but uniform; otherwise I would have restricted Myself to a lot less variety in species and kinds.
The abundance in variety in My creation ought to give you a glimpse of the liberty I want to give You, My children, My
crowning creation, to be whoever you want to be, and whatever I have put in your hearts to be, regardless of how far it may
veer from the mainstream, as long as you stick to My general rules and codecs of the Law of love.
Plugged in to Me, you are strong, because then we are together, and its not you functioning on your own anymore, as a
separate little entity, but youre plugged in to My circuit, a part of My gigantic, universal network, the network of My single
spoken sentence, (uni-verse) where I utter a phrase and it is done, My creation magic.
Everything that is alive breathes Me in and out, and I, in return, in- and exhale you, all of My creation. Its a supernatural,
and yet natural process in the spirit world, comparable to the process of photosynthesis in the natural world.
To disrespect My creation is to disrespect Me.
Some of the laws of nature that are in place today were not part of the original equation. But since death entered through
disobedience, things naturally tend to decay. Things are getting worse, not better, and that process isnt going to be
reversed until I return to restore things to the way they were before
The right choice to make is to accept Me, to integrate and include Me, and to acknowledge Me, to seek Me in My Creation.
Things in this world deteriorate and fall apart
They dont improve, as the evolutionists claim. Thats one of the qualities of this world, and Satan is trying to create an
appearance of the opposite, by creating artificial enhancements on the surface, that create the illusion of improvement,
while the real body underneath keeps deteriorating and slowly rotting away.
Im literally having to allow this world to die in order for it to become desperate enough to finally accept and welcome My
return to reclaim My own.
Things are a little more complicated, a whole lot less transparent and clear than man would have it, which also makes it a
little harder for him to believe how a God in His right mind could have ever created such a seemingly chaotic world.
Because how carefully designed and how intricately it is truly organized only appears upon second or third glance.
The universe is made in such a way that it cannot all be figured out easily upon first glance, analyzed and wrapped up in a
single formula, and then to be said of: Here, this is it. All youve got to know. Nothing more to find out It takes a bit of a
greater effort to figure it all out than even todays advanced scientists have managed.

96

Theyre wracking their brains on that challenge to outsmart God, to show that they could either do without Him or outsmart
Him, and thats in a way precisely why it is a bit more complicated than some would have it. Its a constant testimony to the
fact that its not all that easy to outsmart God, and that a Genius has been at work here; a Master Mind indeed, and well, if
you want to try to beat Him at His own game, good luck!
The moon revolves around the earth, while the earth revolves around the sun, which is the source of its light and life, and
also for the moon, and is immensely bigger than both, earth and moon.
So am I to you. The moon is necessary to keep you stable, but it is I Who provide you with light and life and warmth. The
sun definitely plays a bigger role in earths life and survival than the moon, even though the moon is also necessary and
indispensable.
It is the sun you derive your nutrition and energy from, and when it comes to Me, your spiritual Sun, I also regulate
everything else, the forces that keep your spiritual universe in order, along with the physical forces control the universe.
The more you establish the importance of your revolving around Me, your Sun, the more stable you will be as a factor for
their lives to revolve around. Its the order of the universe, symbolic of spiritual laws that govern the World that for you
right now remains unseen.

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Death

That through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Hebrews 2:14, 15
You've got nothing to fear about death, just like I had nothing to fear, because I knew I was going to rise again.
The death of the flesh - My flesh - brought the life of the Spirit. The smaller unit has to die in order to give way to a greater
new unit... That's the secret & principle on which all living things are founded. Cell partition.
Can a man be found more righteous than God? For sure there can be found plenty who think so. Who's to say or judge
who has run the race & finished their testings in this life, and who's not? Are you the judge of these matters or am I?
Some people have won their battles, stood their tests, & they only have one last test to pass, one final enemy to overcome:
death, the final foe. Often people wonder, "What kind of a God lets these things happen?"
But that is the carnal way of looking at things. People don't see what's supposed to be the point in getting older, becoming
weaker with age, but it does make sense, if you look at it from My viewpoint. The whole lesson of life is that spirit is
superior to flesh, even though it may not look like it initially.
And another very fundamental lesson in life is for man to learn that My righteousness exceeds his own by far, even though
it may also not always look like it, and even if I attach many hard tests, which will make people question whether I really
am righteous or know what I'm doing. This is the ultimate test to find out whether they really believe that I know what I'm
doing, and whether they can say, like Job, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him."
This is the faith that overcometh the world. This is the faith that overcomes even the final enemy & laughs in his faith &
says, "Death, where is your sting, grave, where is your victory? Even though He slay me, I know whom I have believed, and
whosoever liveth and believeth in Him shall never die, for he that believeth in Him, though he were dead, yet shall he live."
When I was crucified, I died the same death that millions of others had suffered and would continue to suffer after that.
Millions of others, even innocent people had been and would yet be crucified. But what made it outstanding was Who I
was, and why I chose to die in the same manner that millions of sinners died, and also, how I died.
Even though on the surface it may seem as if you're just suffering the same fate as countless others, the difference is in
who you are, and why, and how you do it!
I cannot spare all of My children from suffering similar fates as unbelievers, but I want to show the world the difference in
how they die. There were many who died in the Roman arenas during the time of the Roman empire, but only My children
died singing, praising and trusting Me, not afraid to die.
I'm showing the world through the death of My saints that I came to "deliver them who through fear of death were all their
lifetime subject to bondage," (Heb.2:15) and that I can deliver them, too. Many have come to believe in Me through
witnessing the way My people die.
What looks like defeat to those who look with carnal eyes, is in reality a beautiful victory and eternal testimony. "Precious
in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." (Ps.116:15)
My death was actually My zenith, My absolute destiny; there was nothing higher to be achieved or accomplish than what I
did through My death. So, stop viewing death as a defeat! It will just be the proof of the pudding, that you were willing to
live and to die for what you've been preaching and teaching. That's what makes the difference: you're not to be another
teacher of mere dead facts & figures, but teaching others the eternal way of life!
And the cool thing about it is, death has no affect on it, whatsoever, but it's merely your promotion to a much better
working place, under much better conditions.
Any problems you might be having right now will all be a thing of the past then.
Your besetting sins won't have any more power over your saved spirit! Isn't that something to look forward to?
To focus on that goal will help you to realize how temporal it all is, the trials & battles you're going through... It takes the
punch out of them, somewhat, if you know that soon it's going to be all over. And it also takes the sting out of death,
because you know that death will hold such a glorious promotion for you and a liberation from any hold that sin might still
have over your body... Not to mention all the physical ails & pains.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." It's the final orgasm, the climax of your life's symphony and
relationship with Me, like a dance that culminates in ardent passion & the final peak... the moment when you'll know even
as you are known. So, look ahead, look forward! There's something exciting to look forward to! That mark of the price is
really worth it!
Spirit is energy, the pure energy from which all that exists derived. Einstein believed in a life after death, and he wasn't
disappointed. Although he had not known Me during his physical life, his belief, based on the things he was able to
observe in nature with open eyes and an open mind, hungry to ever learn more, prepared him to make the right decision
when he finally came to this side of the veil.

98

The state of this world is rebellion against Me, against My newness. It wants to stagnate, it wants to rot. It is death. I am
life, but this world is death. So, by staying alive & continuing to move & flow with My Spirit, by living the life of the Spirit,
you actually bring life into this dying, and in some ways already dead world.
It's in death that you find life eternal; in death and darkness that you find mercy and Salvation of God. In those deaths of
"dying daily" you find Me, more so than in the good times, when you feel so close to Me. It's the bad & dark times that
actually bring you closer to Me, so don't knock'em, don't curse them, but accept them, say, like Mary, "Let it be! Let it be
done unto Your servant/handmaiden even as You have said!" That's the yielding, that's the submission I need. Just say,
"Let it be!"
The curious and superficial in My days said, "Let's go and hear the miracle preacher!" They were after some kind of kick, &
they were in it for the loaves and fishes, or some diversion and entertainment of sorts. But they were living in the lie, that's
why I, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, had nothing to offer to them. They were living in the way of death, the way of the
flesh, the way of the lie, the way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is destruction and death, but they were
firmly convinced that their way was the right way, the way of life, and My way was the way of death, and when I was finally
crucified, it seemed to confirm to them that they had been right. That's why they all screamed, "crucify Him!" They wanted
Me to die in order to prove that My way had been wrong, and theirs was right! And for 3 days and nights it seemed as
though they had been right. It seemed as if the Devil had won, but when I rose, that's when the true story really began, as
My power was multiplied manifold in My disciples.
Sometimes you've got to overcome death first, in order to really break through to life.
Well, that's what I did for all of you! I have overcome death for you, I plucked out its sting, so that you could all partake of
My life - My unending life, life eternal, life forevermore, life ever-increasing.
They hail, praise and fancy that which is young, strong, where the flesh is still on the rise. "Cool" spells "young:" The flesh
is still strong and appealing, good looking, and doesn't resemble any reminder of what is inevitably before them all: death.
As soon as you start bearing the first marks of resemblance to that "taboo," you remind them of the unpleasant factor
they'd prefer to ignore: evil and sin, which has brought death into the world.
They slave away for their meager wages, which, in the end turn out to be nothing but death, that "way which seemed so
right unto a man," but turned out to be the ways of death...
You slave away for little colored papers all your life, and all you get for it in the end is the sting of death. But not so for
those who receive Me. For I can turn anything and everything into an everlasting value. I'm the Great Alchemist Who can
turn their worthless copper into eternal gold. Even death will be something precious in My sight, when someone has
become one of My saints by receiving Me. And I can even turn money into something useful, something that creates &
brings life, such as your tithes, which are used for the good of My Kingdom.
It all depends on the spiritual direction you're going. Everything that's done for self and the Devil turns to death: the whole
machinery of the System is geared to destruction and death. But if you give it all to Me, and live for Me, whatever you've
got and invest in My Kingdom will turn to God's good and eternal gold.
I did not save the world through some manifestation of strength and power, but through My death, the epitome of
weakness, loss, the ultimate of what the world considers bad.
As Francis said, "It is in dying that we rise to eternal life." So, accept and embrace your life fully, along with its death,
accept it as just the way I created it, and as it ought to be.
The difference between the way most people view death, and the way I view it: for them it's the most terrible thing that
could happen to them, in My eyes it's precious, a celebration, your glorious homecoming, your relief.
I give you My power to overcome all things, even death!
I will breathe upon you the breath of life, the breath that first caused Adam to awaken, and brought forth life from nonliving matter; and so it will raise you from death to life - from a life, once so death-like, to a life truly lived in My love, My
exuberant joy, My victory, My Spirit.
There's nothing that brings folks back to life like a brush with death. Death is just a means by which I bring life, life more
abundant. Life isn't really life for a lot of people until they have died. The real life only begins after death releases you from
that "cheap imitation" you call life right now.
The refusal of some to believe in a life after death stems from their fear of the consequences. What would expect them
there? Certainly they would have to face the consequences for their selfish actions in this life, and they fear they would be
punished. So they prefer to push it away into the realm of the unbelievable, the unacceptable, the non-existent - in their
minds.
That's why it's so important that you portray an accurate picture of Me: that of a forgiving God.
People need to know that the reason why they don't believe in a lot of things is because they don't want to believe in them,
because they're subconsciously scared of the consequences. And your job is to let them know that there's nothing to be
afraid of. I'm not nearly as bad as they think!
The work behind the scenes is what really counts, the invisible hand of God working beneath the surface during the

99

months of snow... You think, it's death, but it's that apparent death that brings forth the new life of the spring.
In order to have a resurrection there had to be death first. Something had to die.
One is not really totally and absolutely willing to give up all their selfish dreams, ambitions, desires and expectations from
life completely until they've come to the point where they're willing to give up everything that is contained in this life
altogether.
In order to be able to lay it all on the altar, it has to become like dung for you; of no esteem... it must not matter to you
anymore, nor have any degree of importance; so that you'll finally be willing to embrace whatever it is that I want from you
and ask of you. Unless you realize that everything else is as nothing, it will always remain just a wee bit too important for
you to let it go without hesitation in favor of My option, which otherwise will always appear less attractive and less
important, less desirable to you.
There must be nothing left for you to want to preserve in this life, nothing about this life you would seek to save, for only
he who loseth his life shall truly save it. You can't keep it. You can't hang on to it. You've got to let it go (Luke 14:26).
You cannot have the new unless you let go of the old, and you cannot let go of the old unless you deem it undesirable,
nothing you want.
All that the Devil can do with the stuff he shows man, is bring death. He's the bringer of death, I'm the Bringer of Life, and
we'll see in the final round, which is stronger. Once you've overcome death, what other obstacle could there possibly be?
All the Devil's power is in death and the fear thereof, so, be of good cheer, I have overcome all that he can muster up!
I will bring life, and ever more life, even through all the death, destruction and havoc the Devil will wreak and unleash upon
the earth. I have overcome him, and will cause you also to overcome!
There is one impending change that is inevitably going to hit everyone, even if they wont live to see the Endtime or My
return, and that is death. I dont want My children to enter My Kingdom unprepared.
In spite of its phony youthful appearance, this world is really rotting and dying, and almost decaying. Theres nothing fresh
about it. They have allowed sin to enter, and the wages of sin is death, a death that is now rapidly creeping all over the
world. They may not notice it while the music keeps playing and the laughter drags on, and their fancy dances, but its all
just a farce the Devil keeps going, under the motto the show must go on, only to hide whats truly happening beneath the
surface: theyre getting ready for the total enslavement of mankind.
The Father has so much love that He even gave them Me, the One He loved above all, and allowed Me to cross the one
barrier which men consider to be the final, ultimate barrier, death, only to prove that it is possible to overcome it, that
death is not a final thing, as some believe and teach, but that love is stronger than death.
The wages of the sin the Devil brought into the world with mans help was death, but He was now going to overrule that
with the gift of eternal life.
You dont see death anymore as something unpleasant one should try to avoid, but more as something positive. Youve
come to know that dead people arent gone, but safe, theyre safely tucked away with Me in My Domain, where I can
take better care of them, instead of having them subjected to the influences of the evil one, even if they may be temporarily
withdrawn from the sight of those in the material world.
Since death entered through disobedience, things naturally tend to decay. Things are getting worse, not better, and that
process isnt going to be reversed until I return to restore things to the way they were before
Life on earth is finite, your bodies functionality is limited, and death is a reality, an integral part of life, an inevitable event
people should prepare for and take into consideration.
Most peoples attitude towards death is that they try to avoid thinking or talking about it, when it really isnt much different
from taking a journey for which preparations ought to be made. Youll want to know that youre going to be able to manage
in the place of your destination, that youre going to receive some kind of warm welcome, and youre somewhat
acquainted with the customs of that place, even if it may be a little strange and foreign to you, and you can hardly imagine
what its going to be like. Usually, youll try to find out as much as you can about it.
Youll want to make sure you have a ticket to the right place, and youre not going to get busted for riding without a ticket,
and wind up in detention, or with a fine, instead of at the desired destination.
There are no physical things you need to pack for this trip into the spirit world, but its more like you send ahead of
yourself some of the stuff that is going to act as your credentials or currency over There. Your prayers and deeds of
love, and the souls you win for Me, theyre going to go before and follow you there.
Life isnt really much more than a journey during which you may or may not be smart enough to glean items for your final
destination in order to equip you with know-how and experience on certain issues that Eternity will be largely about.
Its natural to want to express condolences and to want to be a comfort to people, just like the mourners in situations
where people had died in the Gospels Along came I and perplexed them by showing that their mourning wasnt
necessary, because I am able to turn death into life, and Im still able to do that very same thing today for anybody, and I
can turn mourning into rejoicing
It does require faith, and, of course, in a society where the power of the flesh is considered supreme and the all-in-all, its
hard to be brought to that edge where the flesh is powerless, after all, and to trust in a God Who would allow such
suffering and loss.

100

Its an individual choice of faith to take the high road or low road in such a situation, just as it is in nearly every other
instance of faith.
Death is a sign that there is a degree at which all human efforts fail and are in vain. Its the one last thing that will somehow
remind people of Me, and that they dont have their fates in their own hands completely, after all. So, why not grant Me that
opportunity to get through to people in such moments?
Even though their lives seem more stable than yours on the surface, what they dont realize is that everything within their
lives is moving and drifting toward that point of death, and theyve got their faith attached and anchored to subjects and
objects within that moving frame, and once one of those factors fails or disappears, they fall, too. Whereas your faith is
attached to the only stable and unmoving Factor unmoving even in relation to death and Eternity.
Thats why I said to the young man who said he wanted to serve Me but first wanted to bury his father: Let the dead bury
their dead! I was giving this young man a chance to hinge his life on something more than all those moving and fleeting
factors and instead invest it in the one stable Cause and value that would not perish. Everything else, by comparison is
dead. If I am the Life, then anything other than Me that is not attached to Me or dedicated to Me, is equivalent with death.
Death is the ultimate proof which shows what they have been investing their lives and their faith in: either in fleeting and
perishable factors, or the Eternal and lasting. It is also the one crucial measuring device by which you can tell just how
many are on the wide road to perdition, and how comparatively few are on the straight and narrow way to life.
Life as you know it is not the same as it used to be before the Fall, nor what I had originally intended it to be like, and in
comparison, its almost more like death than life the way I had intended, and the way you will experience it again when you
will come Home to Me.
This does not mean that Im advocating suicide or Euthanasia, because life as it is also has a purpose and is meant to be a
school, a learning experience youre meant to go through, and not supposed to skip or miss out on.
You can make up for Adam and Eves failure to trust and believe and obey Me by reversing in your own life the course they
took and decide to trust Me that I know what Im doing, and also mean what I have said.
When I said that they would die on the day they would eat of that fruit, I meant it, and in comparison to the abundant life
they lived before they sinned, the life that I have promised all of My believers, they were dead after eating from the
forbidden tree, and they only returned to life in the sense they had known it before, after they died.
You dont have to be afraid of death, because what I have promised to those who accept My sacrifice on the cross is also
true: they shall have eternal life, and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die, and though he were dead, yet
shall he live.
You dont need to hang on to this life tooth and nail as if it were the only thing youve got and will ever have, because the
best is yet to come. I encourage My followers to lose their lives in service for Me, to give their lives for the benefit of others
as witnesses for Me, in order to bring them the eternal life that I originally intended for man to live, and deliver them from
this poor simulation of life they currently live instead.
Life is death compared to what it once used to be and what it was meant to be, and what it will be again for those who have
accepted My sacrifice, once they cross the pathway of what they presently call death. Their parting from this life will be an
arrival in a much better life.
On the other hand, as pitiful as this present life may be in comparison, its still there for a purpose, and not to be despised.
Its a testing ground for you to find out and determine how to make Heaven or Hell happen for you by your choices. The
reason why some peoples lives resemble death rather than life is that it resembles hell because of their choices, while at
the same time it could be so much more like Heaven, if they would only make the right choices.

101

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Dependence on God

As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye,
except ye abide in Me.
Without Me ye can do nothing. John 15:4,5
Your principal task is to learn to operate by Me, not merely to co-operate with Me, but to function by Me, to make things
happen through Me, just use My power & get things done by using Me! Let Me be your Genie in a bottle! Just rub the lamp,
open your vessel & let me fill you with My oil, My strength, My energy, the power that will enable you to DO IT! You wanna
DO IT? Let ME do it through you!
I will have to become your oxygen, if you want to survive the days to come! I will have to become your only light, your
bread, your water, and everything you need to live, for the Devil is going to try to cut all other means of supply.
If you already allow Me to carry you now, to care for you, as if you had nothing but Me, it will not be so difficult when there
will REALLY be nothing but Me to rely on.
No matter how cool you may be, how open, how permissive: without Me, youll still wind up a failure.
You must not rely on anything but My hand, My power & My Spirit.
I am the difference between life & death. For I am Life, & without Me, youre dead. Lifeless, motionless, dead. If you
would be fully aware of how incapable you are to get anything accomplished without My help, you would constantly be
seeking My contact, desperately grasping for Me as a drowning man grasping for air.
I am your oxygen. I am what keeps you alive. If I withdraw just a fraction of the necessary ingredients to keep you alive,
your body would cease to exist. What man is taking for granted is actually an endless sequence of miracles.
Imagine youre a deep sea diver. I am the bottle of oxygen on your back! Thats how much you need Me!
Sooner or later, every human being will have to come face to face with the fact that without Me you can do nothing. Lets
face it: without Me you cant even breathe. Who made the lungs & the oxygen? And Who created the process that made an
endless supply of oxygen possible? Just because they refuse to give the credit to Me doesnt change the fact that Im still
responsible for it.
I want & need you to want & need Me, so, Im having to allow these challenges to appear before you, which finally make
you desperate enough to cry out for My help!
If you were desperate & humble enough from the beginning & not cruise on the drift of apparent victory, or all things
flowing just fine without seeking My face constantly, they might not even occur. But its your resting on your laurels, your
being confident of, Well, now the Lord surely must bless me, that allows the Enemy to come in & test you again with the
next battle. Him that thinketh he standeth, let him take heed, lest he fall is probably one of the key verses in your life,
because as soon as you think youve got it made, youre allowing the Devil to prove to you that it aint so.
And its good, because it reminds you that you havent got it made at all, but that you desperately have got to cling to Me
for every moment & every step of the way, if you want to make it at all.
Therell be no more uncertainty, if you cling to Me each step of the way & seek Me to open your eyes to whatever traps &
snares the Enemy might be throwing your way!
I specially put this challenge before you to make double sure you wont fall into the temptation of just coasting along on
the momentum of the flesh or your own carnal mind & wisdom, figuring you'd be smart enough to handle this.
I purposely gave you this one, which I knew was going to be too hard for you to figure out by yourself, in order for you to
get into the modus operandi of "without Me ye can do nothing." Finally you're getting desperate enough so that you come
to Me at every turn, because you don't know how to go on.
With your own two hands you can maybe move a few bricks at a time, but using My power, you can move a whole wall or
as I have said in My Word - a whole mountain, with the same or even less physical effort.
I appreciate your wanting to do things for Me. But there are so many spiritual forces at work behind the scenes, that you
simply must forsake any attempt to do this with your own natural means. You must operate in the spirit. That means you
must put Me in charge of the things you want Me to do!
You can't do the works of the Spirit in the flesh, and to get ahold of My Spirit just takes time fellowshipping with Me, asking
Me, receiving from Me, drinking in from Me. Without Me and My Spirit, you can't even see clearly where to go, much less
take steps in the right direction.

102

Desperately look to Me for each step you're going to take, depending on Me and knowing that without Me you can
accomplish nothing.
I want to be the Light that you turn on in your life when it's dark, the heat you can avail yourself of when it's cold, your food
when you're hungry, your drink when you thirst.
I want you to realize how badly you need Me. How nothing you are without Me. How useless everything will be unless you
reach out for Me & do it in My strength!
Those who are able to lean on their own arms fall flat on their faces and peter out long before those who need Me and
nothing but Me to cling to, in order to make it through another day.
I want you to get to the point where you see that nothing works without Me.
The World is busy working away without Me, and where are they headed? - Destruction.
It takes a while to turn someone around & get into a whole new modus operandi of working by Me. It's not a thing that
happens from one day to the other. It takes time.
Cast yourself wholly onto Me & stop relying on the arm of the flesh.
You need My Spirit to do it. And the realization of impotence & failure without Me is just helping to make You seek Me & My
Spirit more and to make you more desperate for My help & My power, without which you simply can't do it.
There's such a humongous job out there to do, that there's no chance in a lifetime even to think that you could do it on
your own without My power, and so I'm making you more desperate to get ahold of My power. I'm driving you into My arms
by the sheer recognition of the vast need and your impotence to do anything to quench it, and thus of the need you have
for My power to do it through you and avail yourself of that power...
If you want to love them - successfully - you'll have to love Me first & get all the love for them you need from Me first. And
that's why I'm keeping you & training you & teaching you here in My arms.
At that point where you recognize the uselessness of the flesh, the futility of the flesh, that "the flesh profited nothing,"
that's where you finally get desperate enough to make sure you're getting ahold of My strength, and that that's the only
chance you ever had and will ever have, Me in you, your only hope.
You can't do it yourself. What they need is a love that by far exceeds your own finite capabilities, & you're only going to get
the stamina you need by plugging into Me first thing, before you make your clumsy attempts to lift them up. You can't do it
without Me. The only way you're ever going to love anyone enough, & the way they need to be loved, is through Me & by
My spirit of power & love & of a sound mind.
The only real & true & lasting cure is My love, & you're only going to get that from Me. You can't feed a starving soul from
empty pockets.
You've got to have it first, in order to give it. You can't love in the flesh, you can't perform a miracle of My Spirit in the flesh,
and I have ordained it to be purely a work of My Spirit from A to Z.
That's just the way it is... You've got to come & get it from Me. I've ordained it that way to prevent you from ever thinking
it's you.
It's not in you, it's not in you, it's only in Me!
You don't have enough love! Just admit it.
There's another good reason for really making sure you get ahold of Me first thing every day, because if you don't, you
know you're gonna make a mess of things, & no matter how hard you try, you're never going to manage to say or do the
right things. Without Me ye can do nothing!
There's no way you're ever going to have enough love without coming to Me first to get it. I am the Bread of life! Unless
you eat Me, you're going to faint! How do I give power to the faint & strength to those that have no might? The same way
you gain physical strength by eating food & taking in physical nourishment! You've got to eat Me, just the way you eat your
food, if you want Me to do you any good. If you get hungry you eat, right? So, if you feel like you're running low on spiritual
energy & "lovability," just stop & take a break & take a bite of Me! Come, "taste & see that the Lord is good."
Your great & "unbearable" dilemma is actually the best & most perfect way possible for Me to show you just how
desperately you need Me.
I want you to reach the end of your rope, the end of your own capacities & find Me there, way beyond the limits of man.
It's this very desperation, this incapability to cope with life in your own strength, that I cherish the most, because it creates
the necessary desperation in you to call down My power, and that's when I get a chance to work.
When all you've got left is trust in Me, then I get a chance to work in you.
When you realize that you can't do it by yourself, that's usually when I finally get My chance!
Your very weakness will be your strength. What's going to help you make it through is not any of your personal strength,
much less a pretense of any strength that's not really there, but your only hope is your trust in Me; getting ahold of Me
daily, & never to neglect that link.
You can't lean on anything you've got, that you've accumulated or acquired on your own over time, not even your faith,
your knowledge of the Word, much less your mind or your wits or your own goodness, but the only thing you've really got
- and all you really need, at the same time - is Me!

103

I'll be there to give you faith when you've got no faith! I'll be there to give you love, when you've got no love - strength,
when you've got none of your own... I don't want you to boast in your faith. I only want you to boast in Me.
Make sure that you get your strength for the battle from Me every day. I wish to be the Source of all that you need.
Its got to be Me fighting for and through you.
You're going to have to acquire greater unity and love for each other than ever before, greater dependence on Me, and skill
in the usage of My spiritual weapons.
"He that thinketh he standeth, let him take heed lest he fall." Without Me ye can do anything bad!
There is no way you can possibly escape or survive what is to come without Me, so you might as well learn the best you
can how to depend on Me daily.
I am training you in the art of dependence on Me. The Devil knows that dependence on Me is your only hope of survival, so
he will try to get you to forsake the idea of having to depend on Me.
I'm like your Mother & you're like My baby. There's nothing unnatural about the baby's dependence on his mother. There's
nothing wrong with dependence on Me! I'm your tug boat into freedom, your horse on which you can ride out of this mess.
Hitch your wagon to My star!
Every breath you take comes from Me. I am the Oxygen that will keep this flame alive, and as long as you're aware of how
much you depend on Me, this is going to keep going, working and functioning.
I wait for you to come to Me, in order to help you to get the victory, so that you will know it's not you who wins them, but
that only I can win them through you! Next time you're battling, remember that I'm only waiting for you to come to Me to
give you the victory! That's what will show that you've really learned how to fight properly! I'm your greatest weapon, your
shield and your exceeding great reward! I will be your Victory! I will show you precisely which weapons to use, which are
going to be the most effective in dismantling the Enemy & destroying him and his plans, his lies in your life!
The more feverishly someone tries to be perfect in their own strength, the bigger the mess they're making out of things,
whereas the greatest saints who ever lived learned to let Me do all things through them.
No matter how hopeless a case you may be in the eyes of others - or others may be in your eyes - I can use both, you and
them, in spite of it, if you'll just let Me & give Me a chance. That no flesh should glory in My presence. That I will get the
glory for it, since I'm the One Who initiated the whole thing in the first place, and the One Who will complete it. The only
difference is between those who think they can do it themselves and those who got the point that there's no way on earth,
no chance in a lifetime that they can, without Me.
Thinking you've got to do it by yourself, and in the flesh, hinders you from experiencing the freedom you find in just
putting it onto My shoulders & letting Me do it through you.
Changes of the heart are miracles that only I can bring about, you can't do it yourself, so quit trying & let Me do it! Just
hold still & be My vessel & trust in Me to do what you can't.
Open up your life & heart to Me & let Me do it & work in you what you can't bring about yourself. It's so easy, if you just let
go. You don't have to do it yourself! Just let Me do it. It's going to be alright, if you just let Me do it.
Maybe what you consider imperfect is just what I like about you; that weakness that keeps you extra humble or dependent
on Me. If you were Mr. Success, you might possibly feel better about yourself, but I'm not so sure whether that would be
conducive to your being as dependent on Me & as desperate to seek & find Me everyday.
You're not strong enough to make it without Me, and I'm very happy about that! Your weakness is the very thing that keeps
you close to Me!
When it becomes humanly impossible to love someone, let it serve as a reminder that without Me you cannot do anything
anyway.
Loving others unconditionally is an art and a task that only I can really teach you. Only I can give you the grace to pray for
those who despitefully use you and would persecute you. If you try to do it in the flesh, you'll collapse under the weight of
the burden. I want to enable you to do the humanly impossible, but you must remember that it is I Who enable you, that it's
nothing you can do of yourselves.
So, when you're faced with an impossible situation, that's the moment when it's time to let Me take over.
It's an easy job you've got, because I'm going to do it for you! You don't have to carry the weight of the burden; you must
not. Let Me do it for you! It's so much more beautiful, when you realize that you don't have to do it, that you've just got to
let go & let Me. People will notice the difference between those times when you try so hard to do it in the flesh and when
you just let Me do it through you. Let Me carry the burden for you!
When you can't love, let Me do it through you! When you can't sing or talk, let Me do it through you! When you can't walk,
when you can't go on, let Me carry you! You must learn to throw your weight on Me, to just let Me carry you when you get
too weak to go on by yourself! I am just waiting for that moment when you can't anymore & I must take over... That's My
part. When you have done yours & have gone as far as you could, then it's time for the next part, which is Mine. Just like I
could have never made it without the Father, it's foolish to think that you must do it on your own!

104

So, don't try to carry the burden alone; the burden of loving the unlovely, of loving your enemies or the foes of your own
household.
This job is too big, too monumental for anyone to try to do in their own strength. Without Me ye can do nothing. This one
verse is the gist, the crux & the point of it all, the one thing I want you to learn. So, if that's what I want you to learn, it
means, quit doing things without Me! Quit doing them in your own strength & any other way but through Me and My
power! If you want to build lasting works, you're going to have to use My power to do it, not your own.
I'll help you make it through. The more you rely on Me, the easier it's going to be. The heavy loads are there to remind you
that you shouldn't carry them yourself, but that you should rely on Me. Make Me work for you so that I may work in you and
through you. Learn to let Me work through you by making My power work for you.
To be moving in My Spirit & to let My Spirit function in you requires that you let go of the crutches of the flesh, of leaning
on your own arm, talent or anointing for strength and support, and just cast yourself wholly into My arms, willing to trust in
nothing else but Me. Let Me be your strength!
I'm revealing to you, bit by bit, how helpless you are without Me.
Allow Me to take the driver seat of your life, the steering wheel, the gear shift & the pedals, & just lean back & enjoy the
ride. It's pride & the natural tendency for man to want to show off that he can do it himself, but there are situations in life
where the only right move to make is to let Me take over the wheel!
You cannot do the Master's work without the Master's power! I don't expect you to do anything without it!
I want you to become sure that it's My power that's compelling you, My power that's driving you forward, My power, My
Spirit that's causing you to speak, to act, to do anything, so that everyone will know it, but especially you.
I'm not saying that you've got to know everything before you start giving out what you've got, I'm just saying that you've
got to get ahold of My power before you do My work.
I'm sorry you have to continue to keep experiencing those stretches of emptiness, of hopelessness & senselessness, but
they're just what's needed to drive you back to Me again in order for you to be refilled.
It's going to have to be very obviously My hand and My means that will have saved you & will have given you the victory.
The good works you do or things you accomplish don't bring you closer to Me, contrary to what you might think. They
make you lean less on Me, My grace and My mercy, not more.
I want you to know beyond any shadow of a doubt that I'm your only hope, your only salvation, and that without Me you
cannot do anything. Once that's indisputably established, then I can start working through you.
I need your total realization that it's got to be Me and all Me doing it & working it in you and through you, nothing else. No
element of self whatsoever. Not even the slightest hint of the danger that you might ever talk about the things "you're"
accomplishing. It's got to be totally clear that it's Me doing it!
Its got to be obvious: "No, it's not me doing it, it's only Him! It's only Jesus!"
"A man's gifts will make room for him" & take him before kings, but you've got to let Me carry you there! You've got to let
Me do it! It's got to be My Spirit doing it, which will have come down upon you for your obedience to My commandment to
go into all the world & preach the gospel to every creature!
The reason I've been keeping you weak physically is for you to get accustomed to leaning on Me & operating in My Spirit.
I've made you incapable of doing anything on your own so that you would learn to do things by My power.
Stand back & see Me fight for you.
I've purposely made My people a peculiar, strange and imperfect people, in order to separate & weed out those who
thought they were good enough in themselves.
Having made My people less than perfect helps to remind everyone that it's got to be Me, and that there's no way that any
of which got accomplished was done by the efforts of the flesh.
Bad times that draw you closer to Me make you realize you can't do it without Me.
Who needs God when they manage just fine on their own?
You, My brides, chosen before the foundations of the earth, were destined not to be self-sufficient & independent, but to be
dependent on Me. You couldn't make it in this world without My guidance & My care, as opposed to the goats & wolves &
dogs, who do. So, your insufficiency actually identifies you as one of Mine. "Blessed are the insufficient." Blessed are they
who can't make it on their own in this world, because they learn that they need Me and they give Me honor & praise for the
things that the others all take for granted: their lives, every breath they take & every bite they eat, every piece of clothing
they wear & a roof over their heads. Being dependent on Me is actually the greatest blessing there is, although it may be
well disguised or not easily recognized as such by people who deem independence as such a desirable virtue.

105

Your relationship of dependence on Me is something very valuable you wouldn't want to lose, and that's precisely why I've
got to make sure that you stay in a position of relative insufficiency, so that you realize and remember constantly that you
can't do anything without Me, you can't make it.
With increasing affluence & ability to rely on the flesh, you lose that dependence on Me, and thus, your connection with
Me; in other words: the source of your spiritual riches.
Personal attacks from the Enemy remind you that I in you am the hope of glory. Without Me, there would be no hope, just
as there would be no light, and in order to go the right way, to keep sin out of your life, you constantly have to be facing
toward Me & not turn your back on My light. Only in Me is your hope that you're going to be walking the right path, a good
path. Without Me you're going to get lost & make a mess of things.
I want to get you to the point where you take it literally when I say without Me you can do NOTHING.
You must anchor your spirit & soul firmly in Me in order for nothing to be able to shake you.
When I tell you that without Me you can do nothing, I'm also saying, but look at it this way: with Me, you can do anything!
There's nothing you cannot do, and "you can do all things, through Christ, which strengtheneth you" (Phil.4:13).
I'm weakening your arm of the flesh, because I want you to lean on Me and make Me your strength, because Mine is the
only strength that will see you through the times when your own wit won't be of any avail to you.
Those who rely on their own understanding and abilities will fail inevitably. Only those who learn that there's a greater
strength to lean on than their own, stand a chance to make it through the dark future ahead.
Do you want to excel and shine like a star? There's only one way you can shine, and that's by availing yourself of My light!
Without Me, you're just a worm, but with Me you can become a glow-worm, a lightning bug, lighting up the landscape.
Just as My Early Church never would have made it without the power of the Holy Spirit to have such an impact on the
world, so there's no way you're going to make it without Her. That's why you've got to spend time with Me to get that power
& make sure you're connected.
Wisdom is availing yourself of My power instead of trying to do it on your own.
The big mistake the majority is making is that they're not coming to Me when something's going wrong, they try to figure it
out & fix it themselves.
Whenever you can't do it, that's the time for you to show the magic you've learned: to let Me do it. Let Me make a way when
there is no way out. Let Me give you something to give when you've got nothing to give. Cherish this void, this emptiness,
your nothingness, for out of it I'm able to create everything and anything!
As long as you know you need Me, or at least allow Me to remind you of that fact regularly, there is hope.
Who will truly burn with My oil, and not just smolder & scorch away their own, oversized wick? You can be sure that it's
most likely going to be someone who is weak in their own strength, someone totally dependent on Me.
Wait & depend on Me, and trust in Me every step of the way through a project, instead of leaning to your own
understanding.
You may think, "I'm strong enough!" But I'm afraid I have to show you that it's true, "Without Me ye can do nothing."
Everything only becomes a mess. You're focused on yourself, instead of Me. You're focused on the circumstances, and I
couldn't show you My purpose behind them.
No way of taking care of My business if you're too busy for Me.
When you cling desperately to Me, when you don't dare to make a move without Me, you learn to do things in My strength
and power instead your own.
When you try to fix things in the flesh and in your own strength & wisdom, the outcome may improve temporarily, but the
final outcome may still not be the best, necessarily. Whereas, if you commit a matter into My hands, you can always rest
assured that the final outcome will be according to My will, and thus the best possible option there is, regardless of what it
may seem like temporarily.
Sometimes you don't need to do anything else but pray & trust. You commit the matter into My hands and then leave it
there, and I promise, you won't be disappointed.
Nothing will ever get you as far as if you let Me do it for you.
That's why I delight to let you get into situations where you're at wit's end and you don't have a clue what you're supposed
to do about it: I want you to learn the obvious, the inevitable: it has come to that; you're just going to have to trust Me!
Quit trying to do things better than I can. Just let Me do it for you! Let Me fix it for ya!
Your sins, shortcomings & failures draw you closer to Me? You want to learn how to do better, and that's basically what
healing, learning, growing and salvation is all about: that void, that need to grow, that emptiness. You have a need for Me
when you're not perfect, when you realize you failed, when you need help to see, when you realize you really don't know
much of anything...

106

It shows once again that you can't do it without Me, and, well, that's basically what life is all about. Sometimes it may look
as if you can, and some people may even believe and be convinced they're doing perfectly fine without My interference or
help, but latest when man will have made an irreparable mess out of things, it will become obvious that it was just an
illusion.
No, you're not doing fine without Me!
At least not according to My rules and My book. There's way too much hurting going on, too much destruction... too much
injustice way too much suffering. The rich may think, "Why, everything's just fine as it is." But I see the suffering of the
poor, and I say, "No, it isn't." Just because a rich minority is doing fine doesn't mean that everything's fine.
Ignoring the plight of the poor is not "doing fine" by My account.
Everybody tends to forget at times just how nothing they are and how little they really know, and how desperately they
need Me.
Everybody tends to forget that faith is a vacuum you create in your heart, for Me to fill. It's because the ego doesn't want to
hear about emptiness.
How much do you avail yourself of Me, and how much do you still depend on other crutches? Can you let go of those
crutches voluntarily, or will I have to take them away?
My strength is found in places of emptiness where you dont feel like you can keep going in your own strength at all
anymore. That is where My strength is found, that is sufficient for thee.
I cant give it to you any other way. There is no shortcut to it, no easier way to get it. First your own strength must be
completely expired, before youre finally desperate and empty enough, ready to receive My strength, which is sufficient for
thee.
Im helping you to learn to grow in My strength, and to avail yourself of My strength to a greater measure. My strength is
made perfect in weakness. Before, you were relying on My strength to some extent, but it was never really made perfect,
because there was still too much of your own strength there.
Rely on My strength, and seek not that old familiar strength. Its time to learn to rely on a new strength, which is totally
Mine, and to let go of the familiar old. Let Me prove to you that its true, My strength is sufficient for thee!
Commit your ways unto Me and put your trust in Me, that I will bring those things that concern you to pass. Youre going
to have to trust in Me to do it for you, instead of vaguely hoping that it might work out alright, looking around for ways
your own arm of the flesh might get you out of this situation somehow if worse comes to worst...
Your help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth (Ps.121).
You rely not on your own understanding, not your own strength, not on luck, but on Me, the Creator of all things.
Give it to Me in prayer, put Me in charge of it. And then stand back, relax & see what happens.
The position of your heart in these matters of accomplishment is just as important as the positions of individual pieces in
a machine, or some sophisticated equipment. You can't put a motor in the trunk of a car for instance. But that's in a way,
what lots of people do, like that old saying, they put their carts before their horses. It's the horse power that's got to do the
job, otherwise the cart isn't going to get anywhere, and that applies to your relation with Me, too. Some people think they
don't need the horse, or the motor or the fuel anymore, they're coasting along on some former momentum, and they don't
realize that the oil has run out or the horses are asleep. Without oil that motor's going to give up the ghost pretty soon and
cause one helluva stench.
That's why I can use you better if you just know that you're utterly dependent on good maintenance, constant refills of fuel
and oil, and make sure that the whole machinery is in order.
It's important to remember that you are not alone. There's help available for you. How silly it would be to constantly ignore
that help & insist on doing everything alone.
As soon as you're having a problem you've got something to seek and ask Me about, you're hungry and desperate for a
solution, you need Me.
The solution lies in the very desperation, that vacuum, that void for Me to fill.
"Power, popularity and plenty are dangerous." In other words, if you're un-popular, it's good for you; if you're poor, it's
good for you, and if you're a weak little nobody, it's also good for you!
I couldn't do anything without the Father, but because I was constantly looking unto Him, there was nothing I couldn't do.
And so it is with you: the more you look unto Me, the greater One beyond yourself enabling you to do all things, and
without Whom you're able to do nothing, the more powerful you will also become in My might.
There will come a time when I will have to become your everything: your food, your oxygen, your water. You will be totally
dependent on Me.
Only I can help you to be truly successful in your endeavors. Only I can help you rise above Satan's attempts to slow you
down. It's got to be Me and My perfect timing.
You realize that you have a need, that you're lacking something, and that's always good news for Me, because it means
soon you're going to be asking Me for that which you lack, for Me to fill that need, which I always gladly do.

107

I love to fill any vacuum in your heart, your soul, any empty space there is for Me to fill.
It's really true: without Me, you are nothing; you can do nothing, and your love amounts to nothing.
It's always good news for Me when you realize how nothing you are without Me, because it means that soon you're going
to turn to Me with a renewed hunger and yearning for Me, when you were just beginning to take Me a little bit for granted
again.
Be honest: you cannot love without Me. Your own capacity to love is embarrassing because I am love, and without Me,
your ability to truly love is zero, and every now and then I need to remind you of that.
Your capacity to love anyone doesn't stem from your being such a good person, or because you're such a good child of
God, or any other goodness you might think you have, but only from Me.
Only when you come to grips with of how little you're capable, how little love you're able to give in the natural, do you
realize just how badly you need Me.
Life without Me really isn't worth living. You'll find out that there's no fun, no satisfaction in it whatsoever, if I'm not in it, if
you didn't include Me and didn't take Me with you.
I may let you get away with it for a little while and allow you to experience a little fun and diversion on your own, until
sooner or later you'll realize that there's no fun, no true pleasure at all without the true Source of all godly pleasure.
A lot of lessons and experiences in life lead to the same conclusion and realization of how much you need Me.
Youre going to make sure it's My love that's driving you.
"The love of Christ constraineth me" is a good key verse to help you remember what it's got to be. Nothing else will do. If
you forget, I will remind you. Life will remind you. Your own incapability will remind you.
Knowing that you have no one else on this earth you're able to fully rely on but Me is what creates a bond between us that
no one can sever.
It makes your faith in Me more real, it makes your relationship with Me more real and more storm-proof, and it makes you
more real, as you cling more and more to Me as your only hope.
There is no other One to put your faith into than Me, and by making others realize that that's what you do, and what works
for you, you will also give the right kind of example.
My disciples had to realize that it could only be the Spirit that was going to pull them through. No carnal presence, no
personality cult, nothing and no one in the flesh... Only God can see you through to accomplish what He wants you to, and
He cannot use you until you're ready and will have learned that.
If the job is too big, too scary, too awesome for you, then that's just a reminder that it's got to be Me working through you,
since you don't stand a chance of doing it in your own energy.
It's got to be Me and My Spirit and My message you'll want to share, so you'd better make sure that you're getting ahold of
Me, My Spirit and get My message inside first, before you get it out, so that people will be able to feel and witness that
personal connection between Me and you.
I want you to see the need, but I also want you to take the right steps in the direction of fulfilling the necessary
requirements to fill that need. You've got to let Me fill you first before you can fill that need.
I love people who've got nothing to lose: no status or reputation to worry about.
The more utterly dependent you are on Me for every breath, every bite of food, the better.
I love it when you're dependent on Me. I love and enjoy it and indulge in when you depend on Me.
Losses teach you dependence on Me.
The loss hurts, but in the end you learn through the way I provide new possibilities, new options, new tools and methods,
new ways of doing things and equipment to do them with, that all things will come and go, but I am the one Factor that
remains.
"All you need is love" is correct in the light of 1John 4:8 - "God is Love," and thus becomes "All you need is God."
I'd like you to become more aware of that fact.
It will help you cope with any losses, changes, any crises and drastic turn of events & circumstances.
It's not the things that give you your true value. It's how you handle their loss, the experiences and the wisdom you gain by
going through those ups and downs of have and have not, of win and lose, of gain and lose again, and by the way you
handle those losses, prove that you are winning and gaining again, even if it may "only" be the experience and confidence
that the only thing you can really rely on, really trust in and the only One you really need, after all, is Me.
I never meant for anyone to try to figure it all out by themselves. Ever since Adam, I've always wanted man to look to Me
for guidance and reference, to show him what's going on, what went wrong, and how he's gotten himself into a mess that
only I can fix, when it all comes down to it.
I can use those the most who will just let go of their own abilities, wisdom and stamina and strength, and will lean and
depend utterly on Me.
Its better for Me to keep you low, small, and unrecognized. It keeps you more desperate and dependent on Me.
The work behind the scenes is what really counts, the invisible hand of God working beneath the surface during the
months of snow... You think it's death, but it's that apparent death that brings forth the new life of the spring.

108

Even so the hard times that cause you to be more desperate, more dependent on Me, they do for Me the real work, which
brings on My power on your behalf in your lives. They create the vacuum that draws down My power, that yearning for Me
which causes Me to rush in an fill the need.
The dark and lean times draw you back to the reality that you need Me, that without Me you cannot make it.
I take you back to the ground of the reality that without Me you can do nothing, and that also applies to your relationship:
without Me, there is no love, for I am Love, and without Me there is no unity, for I am He Who puts together what man shall
not separate. I put together what belongs together. I am He Who makes "everything belong."
It's the experience of falling and failing and getting up again, ever realizing that it's not yourselves, nor of yourselves, but
only Me in spite of yourselves, and only because of your openness toward Me, your willingness to turn to Me and embrace
Me and let Me take over, that makes you grow and achieve progress.
I'm using your sins to draw you closer to Me, and make you realize that you can't do it without Me. Your weaknesses
become the factor I use to draw you to closer dependence on Me and get you to a point of submission, yieldedness and
letting go of any less than realistic self-image, of any pretended goodness or wanna-be perfection that isn't really there.
It's not "the survival of the fittest," but "the survival of the closest." The one requirement for being able to survive what's
ahead is closeness to Me.
I need you to learn the art of dependence on Me, because nobody else is going to be able to help you through what's to
come, and the sooner you learn to get all your strength from Me and to put all your trust in Me, the higher are your chances
of making it.
Only I am strong enough to uphold and carry you, and that's why I need you to lean on Me with all your weight and all your
strength.
With all the millions of people out there living in the illusion that they don't need Me, I am desperate for exceptional folks
who are dependent on Me, who are desperately in need of Me. I need you to need Me, because without folks who need Me,
I'm never going to get the job done. It's only My power that's going to enable anyone to do the job of winning the world,
and so I need people who are desperate for that power!
I delight in your incapability because I know that's what's going to drive you into My arms and make you beg for My power
and grace to be poured out upon you, so that I can go to action through you and in you.
Were developing leadership qualities of the kind that will be needed during the days to come; the kind of light that can
shine its way through the darkness of the Tribulation. Lights and energies that will rely on others will peter out sooner or
later Only those who are plugged in directly to Me and My power will have what it takes to make it through the night.
When the job seems too big for you to do it on your own, then its a good moment to rely on Me.
You know youre going to need Me to pass this test, and thats part of the test itself, part of the challenge, because youre
just going to have to stay close to Me in order not to screw it up.
In the carnal it looks hopeless, and its a situation you can only handle with Me, My cooperation and My help, meaning that
theres a whole lot of praying to be done.
If you find yourself at wits end in your situation and you cant seem to handle it and it doesnt make any sense to you, let it
be a sign to you just how futile it is to lean on your own understanding and reasoning, and how much youre going to have
to leave up to Me and commit the whole thing to Me in prayer.
The only hope youve got not to make a mess of it, is to stay really, really close to Me and follow Me each step of the way.
Make your state of mind dependent on no other circumstance than your union with Me. Ive got to be the Constant in your
life, more constant than the sun, more constant than the weather!
Rejoice in a rainy day and let it be a golden opportunity for you to let Me be your Sunshine, the One to light up your life, to
bring warmth and brightness and happiness.
Anything that makes you cling to Me and seek Me more desperately is good in My eyes, because it draws you closer to Me,
gets you more serious about things and enhances the essential skill of dependence on Me.
Im allowing each of you to be only less than perfect for each other in order for you to get the point that only I can truly
satisfy your deepest yearning and need.
Theres no use doing something great if Im not in it.
I know your frame and that you are but dust, and you dont have to try to be or pretend to be anything other than dust, dust
that I, not you yourself, will elevate and lift into the light to float there and shine like diamonds. You cannot become a
diamond of dust through your own efforts. You can do what you can by keeping your face toward the light and focusing on
the light, but it is I Who is going to have to lift you up to shine and sparkle in it.
My strength is sufficient for thee is like saying, you dont need your own, physical strength anymore! Dont try to run in
your own little strength, on your own battery power, but you can rely fully on Me and on My strength. Thats enough, thats
all you need. I promise. Just believe it!

109

But you need to let go of the old one first. Its like switching from battery power to current power.
You have to learn to use My power to amplify your usefulness for Me, in order to bring the message across more clearly, in
a more powerful way.
Trust that My strength is enough for you; you can totally rely on it! I will provide for you, I will carry you, I will empower
you, move you forward when you cant do it anymore in your own strength.
There was a time when your own strength was sufficient, but that time is running out now, its going to be over soon. Soon
youll only be able to operate in My strength. But see it not as a loss, for what you gain is so much more and so far beyond
that which you need to let go and forsake. See it like an upgrade, a promotion, a powerful innovation that revolutionizes
everything.
Plugged in to Me, you are strong, because then we are together, and its not you functioning on your own anymore, as a
separate little entity, but youre plugged in to My circuit, a part of My gigantic, universal network.
Youre trying to be good in your own strength, but that strength isnt sufficient for you. You need Mine, and let that be
enough for you.
So far youve been using My strength to recharge your own battery, but I need you to learn to stay plugged in to My power
and operate in My power.
One of the greatest tragedies in human life is the illusion that theres no need for Me in their lives, and there are no lives as
pitiful as those of the self-satisfied who live in the delusion of having no need for Me.
Thats what the Enemy is trying to construct with all of his distractions and temptations: the illusion that you dont need
Me. Hes constantly saying, Who needs Him, anyway?
Well, thats precisely the road mankind is taking, a road that will prove whether you, mankind per se, need Me, after all, or
not.
The Enemy wont stop trying to get you to replace your need for Me with the need for something else, some substitute hes
trying to get you dependent on and addicted to, whatever you will allow him to use to crowd Me out of your life.
Its usually only when you have nothing left to turn to but Me, that you find the full strength of your relationship with Me
again.
What I need is you. Its just rigged up that way, that I need you and you need Me. Its the way things are supposed to be.
One of the main factors that causes things not to be the way theyre supposed to be, is that people arent aware of the fact
that they need Me, and that I need them. Thus they prevent things from becoming the way theyre supposed to be. The
heavenly life is a life where that fact and that law of the supernatural is clear and granted: that I need you, all My brides and
children, and you need Me. There is no shred of a doubt about it, ever. It permeates everything.
Its a constant give and take. Everything that is alive breathes Me in and out, and I, in return, in- and exhale you, all of My
creation. Its a supernatural, and yet natural process in the spirit world.
The quicker you learn that you need Me, and the more you remain in that consciousness of your need for Me, the better off
youre going to be, and the more stable and stronger in the spirit; not only experiencing that emptiness, that vacuum that
draws on Me and calls for Me and recognizes your need for Me when youre poor, lean, cold and wanting, but also when
you dont lack anything in the physical. - Not fooled by success, but even realizing in your strong moments that you
need Me just the same as during your weak ones.
Just as the Father gave Me the strength and the stamina to make it despite all odds, so I can help you do the same.
I need you to turn to Me for that strength, even if I have to make you feel temporarily deserted by everyone else.
As long as you still put your hopes in anyone or anything else, you dont really stand a chance. I am truly all the hope you
ever need, and Im more than enough.
Ive got to become all you need to the extent that you wont turn your expectations to others anymore, so that all you will
want to do with respect to them is give, and not take. When it comes to your fellowmen, I need you to assume a position of
a giver, not a taker. Ive got to get you to realize that they havent got anything to give of what you actually need, but that I
alone am the sole Filler of those needs.
Ive got to become the Filler of your need for companionship, for love, for comfort, relief, and everything else, and even if I
supply it by means of others, youve got to give Me the honor and credit for it.
I need to be needed by you in order to get My purpose accomplished.
Dependence on Me furthers obedience. Independence promotes disobedience. Independence promotes selfishness,
because it causes you to think I deserve this and I deserve that because I have wrought this and that with my own
hands, and so you pursue and chase your own happiness. Dependence on Me knows I deserve nothing, and thus
humbly and gratefully accepts and yields to whatever I bring along in your life.
Thats a handful of reasons which explain why I must try to keep you dependent on Me.
A system of dependence is often the only way to ensure that a son or daughter will pursue the path of obedience.
While dependence on the System is a questionable thing, you can always be assured that dependence on Me is a good
thing, because I truly and always have nothing but the best intentions for you in mind, and you can always be certain that
whatever I allow or dont allow in your life is for your best.
As soon as you shift your dependence from Me to the arm of the flesh, things start going haywire and everything starts
coming apart at the seams.
In the System, independence is hailed as a virtue and as something worthy of pursuit. My goal is to set you free from such
false paradigms by giving you the deliberating truth that you dont have to depend on yourself for happiness and success
in life. In fact, you can pretty much forget about it, because real happiness is found exclusively in dependence on Me.

110

Youre merely recognizing a widely ignored fact: that youre all dependent on Me for every breath of air, every ray of
sunshine and every drop of rain, and thus every bite of food to begin with, and by recognizing that and giving honor to
Whom it is due and ceasing to rebel against that ordained system of dependence on Me, youre just coming back to the
natural way of things, the way they were originally intended to be.
Be mindful of the fact that you dont have to be and should not be envious of evildoers, and you wouldnt want to be
independent of Me and making a mess of things.
If you refuse to be too proud to admit that youre dependent on Me for everything, youll always have everything you need,
plus safety and shelter from the storms of this life, and youll make it somehow.
I need you to find out by experience that the results simply wont be the same when you try to do things without Me as
when you include Me and commit the day into My hands first. I need to make it obvious to you that relying on Me is
doubtlessly the preferable option to relying on your own strength and wisdom.
Too many people try to do things on their own without Me, without consulting Me, acknowledging Me, and often even
without considering Me or asking for My help at all. Just a quick stamp of approval, perhaps, so they cant say they never
prayed, but not really looking up to Me for constant guidance.
You can do it yourself, if you insist, but the result will never be the same as when you include Me. You can do it, but
whether youre going to be doing a good job at it is another question.
Many factors force you to cling to Me and seek My face, instead of enabling you to just cruise along by sight. The only
way anybody in My service is ever going to make it to the finish line victoriously is by faith, not by sight & being able to
calculate every little step ahead, relying on ones own strength, wit and abilities.
So its going to take a miracle for you to be able to make it, instead of you being able to rely on your own skill. Does that
surprise you that Im not allowing you to get away with relying on your own strength?
I want and need success to be brought about by My Spirit, My power and grace, not by your relying on your own skills.
The final outcome and happy end of history will be despite the mess that mankind would have made out of it all, and only
because of My wonder-working and miraculous grace, and thats what I want you to put your whole faith in, not any
personal, carnal abilities.
Its natural for the flesh to want to show off all that it can and all that it is, and that remains ones priority until the point
where the flesh has reached its limits and proven itself to be insufficient.
Is it any wonder that there is such a great lack of My Holy Spirit, as long as everybody just tries all they can do in the
flesh?
There is still way too much flesh energy and carnal attempts to make it happen instead of folks really relying on Me to do it
for them or through them.
There are times when its simply time to be still and know that I am God, to remember Who is Boss, and let Me have back
the first place and priority in your life again, after a stretch of showing how wonderfully you were able to do it using a lot of
your own strength.
With each passing year I want you to avail yourself more of My strength and less of your own.
The more desperate and dependent on Me you are, and the less you confide in the flesh, the better things will be.
How do you become more dependent on Me? By trying to maneuver and manipulate the circumstances into the most ideal
and best possible position for you? No, rather by yielding and saying yes to whatever situation and condition you find
before you, even if its hard, and then relying on My help to get you through that.
You may be more inspired during the good times, even more productive, but thats not what counts to Me. What counts for
Me is how much you lean and depend on Me instead of your circumstances! How much you allow Me to let you rise
above your circumstances, help you conquer them and make the best out of whatever you encounter in life.
If youre going to accomplish something of significance for Me, its going to have to be done by My power, via My
directions to you, and for My glory, or its just going to fall flat, and never be what you would wish for it to be.
You cannot mistake service to Me as only action. In fact, 90% of it is interaction with Me, Your communion with Me, your
devotion to Me, and I will do the rest through you. I will then inspire and empower you to do the physical part of executing
whatever is My will for you to do.
My strength is enough for you, but your own could never be enough. When youre weak, then I am strong in you, but when
youre strong in your own strength, then I cannot be seen in you, and I can hardly shine through. So, ask Me whether I
want to see you weak or strong. Ask Me whether its your physical strength and togetherness I need in order to do what I
want to get done through you.
I prefer you to stay empty and desperate and yearning for Me than full and content and self-satisfied with your own
accomplishments. Id rather have you seeking Me and wondering, Lord, what can I do for you, than pointing at all that
you have done for Me already.
You ought to know better by now than thinking that you can handle everything in your own wisdom.
If I bring an opportunity into your life, you have to give Me a hand in bringing it to pass. You cannot complete in the flesh
what I have begun in the Spirit.
You cant do My work without My power, and if theres a problem with the power connection, weve got to fix it first, before
you can continue doing My work.
How prepared are you for a situation in which youd have to trust Me and Me alone?

111

How else will you be ready then, unless you learn how to trust Me now for everything?
The one Factor I want you to be dependent on is Me. As long as youre clinging to Me, and what you hang on to, as you
hang in there is Me, even during the most turbulent turn of lifes roller coaster ride; youll be safe and sound.
Worries, cares and problems only come into being when you allow other factors to replace that role which Im supposed to
play in your life, and they become more important to you.
The sooner youll have learned to truly rely on your communication with Me for your survival, the stronger & better off
youre going to be.
The essential communication is the spiritual communication, even if it may not seem to be getting you anywhere in this
world.
In reality, it is much more important and crucial in keeping you alive and going, and successfully so, than any physical
means of communications ever could.
Its your prayer-, praise- and prophecy-line that keeps you alive and kicking, more than your telephone line, your internet
connection, or even the power lines that supply you with electricity.
Youve been dependent on those physical connections for practically your whole life, and its not so easy to make the
transition of switching to Spirit Power, but thats basically what this whole lesson of Flesh vs. Spirit amounts to.
You cant handle your life on your own, but only with My help.
But who ever said that you were supposed to handle it on your own?
I specialize in those who plainly cant make it through life without Me. I have a special love for those who really and
desperately need Me. Sure, their minds may tell them like everyone else that they can make it on their own, too; that
they are strong enough, etc., but reality keeps knocking on their window, and experience continues to teach them that they
simply dont have the strength to make it through this world on their own, nor without the help from above from Someone
that wont let them down.
So, if you feel bad about being too weak to make it on your own through this life, be comforted and know that I dont see
that weakness as a handicap at all, but rather as a strength and an asset that will give you an advantage over others who
will have to go the long detour of finding out that making it in their own strength will not lead them to that closeness with
Me where their innermost heart and core of their being would really yearn to go.
Dont forget about the Jesus Factor as you go through your day and try to figure things out, make sense of it all and
solve the riddles. Im your Ace and relying on Me is your smartest move.
See each crisis as an opportunity to experience more of My capacity to be all you ever need.
If youre going to put your trust in anyone, and you really want Someone reliable to be in charge of your life, your
happiness, and everything, let it be Me!
Ive got to allow a little reminder to come along every now and then that its not the flawless world the flesh would
sometimes like to make itself believe to be, but theres lots of room for improvement, and thus, lots of reasons to stay
close to Me and seek Me for solutions to lifes problems at hand.
Youre up against a large majority, and youre not going to be able to stand against them all alone without help from the
Lord of Hosts. Youre going to have to recruit My Army and My forces to rush to your side, otherwise its hopeless.
That is never portrayed in those movies where some hero overcomes legions of evil on his own: It creates the unrealistic
notion that you just might win against all odds by yourself, but thats not quite correct.
Give honor where it is due and avail yourself of the supernatural strength that alone can help you make it in the real fight.
Dont make the mistake of forgetting about Me, nor your co-fighters at your aid.
When trouble comes you wont be able to rely on any group. Youre going to have to be able to rely on Me; thats what
matters, and thats what will count: how much will you have learned to truly rely on Me?
I want you to become dependent on Me, not on paper!
I want you to know that Im a greater force to be reckoned with than any amount of money in the world.
Financial power all good and nice, but nothing compared to My power!
When it comes to a factor that people put their trust in, then money is definitely My rival no.1, and it happens subtly. How
dependent folks become on money only becomes evident once I start withdrawing it or allow its flow to be reduced. If I see
that it doesnt have any effect on their faith and trust in Me and they remain cheerful and thankful, then I know money does
not affect them, but if I see that their trust starts to crumble, then we have a problem, and we need to work on it.
The more you rely on the Spirit, the less you will have that urge to do it yourself, in the flesh. You simply learn by
experience that the Spirit is the easier and better and more effective way in the long run, that the flesh may have its
advantages, but theyre always finite, and sooner or later its bound to let you down, and the sooner you will have learned
to depend on the Spirit, the more and longer you will find yourself sustained even in situations in which the flesh would
have let you down.
Its essential for you to recognize that the power is not yours but Mine.
Its one reason why I have to keep you physically weak and obviously dependent on Me.

112

Ive got to have you wait for Me. I cant let you do it on your own. Only together with Me are you as strong as you need to
be for this battle thats coming up.
I dont want you to be complacent. I want you to stay in a mode in which youre desperately seeking Me for every step,
never taking for granted that your current procedure or state is just perfectly fine without any further need for
improvement.
You may crave and want physical support from people, but Im primarily concerned about teaching you to avail yourself of
My support and aid.
Once you will have learned to do that, then it will also draw the attention of others toward you, and will cause them to
consider lending their support to you and joining forces with you.
I like to get involved in the action Myself.
Thats part of the reason why I never cease from trying to convince you of availing yourself of My help and power, instead
of always waiting for some physical figure to appear and save you. Salvation will come to you from the Spirit. Thats the
hills from whence cometh your help. Not from the physical heights and big shots around you in your realm, but from
the Lord which made heaven and earth.
Dependence on Me is what counts, and we are in the process of taking that principle out of the realm of the theoretical and
putting it into practice, applying it in the real world.
I need to train your muscles of dependence on Me alone, even if its painful having to watch others on your left and right
blessed with material abundance to a greater extent than you.
Im working on shifting your sense of security away from the confidence in circumstances, your own wit or strength, or
just simply luck, over to My side. People are so often confident in fake securities. Be it the assumption that all things will
continue as they are, or that somehow theyre going to make it because theyre strong or smart enough
Not a lot of folks really depend on Me. So, whenever I do have a candidate who stands a chance at learning that lesson and
place their confidence in Me, instead of any of those other factors, I keep after them, and try to get them to really dig it. Which explains why I have to bluntly allow you to reap the results of your failure to do so. (IV:296)
When it comes down to it, all youve really, really got in the end to rely on is Me, and Im hoping that you will finally truly
begin to see that I am, in fact, more than enough, even if you cannot possibly feel it right now.
Having learned to depend on Me never comes in as handy as during a time when you lose someone who played an
important or even pre-eminent role in your life.
Ground your dependence solely in Me, regardless of what people might say.
This is a golden opportunity for Me to really draw you close to Me without distraction, and truly teach you to depend utterly
on Me, and even if this whole situation may seem as a great evil to you, in My eyes it is actually a greater good. (IV:314)
Im really your only Light, the only One you can fully and wholly rely on, as difficult as that may seem for you to take.
Its important that you recognize My preeminence over the presence of any single person in your life that you might be
prone to make yourself and your feelings and state of mind so dependent on. (IV:321)
You cannot be both, dependent on Me and someone else at the same time; at least not in the long run. (IV:325)

113

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
the Devils Devices

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
2Corinthians2:11
As long as you lash out at the Enemy, youre bound to win. Hell tell you, you have no chance, but listen not to him. As
soon as he opens his mouth, a lie comes out. He may cunningly mix it with a bit of truth, so that you might believe him,
and he comes across as the defender of the mistreated, the champion of the underdog, trying to get you to show
weakness when you should not, and again, trying to get you to harden yourself when you should not. One thing you need
to know about the nature of the Enemy is that he never plays fair. Hes the first to scream, Thats not fair!, and will be the
first to break the rules. Hes a pathetic, cowardly, desperate punk who knows that his time is short, ready to tear down into
the abyss as many with him as he can.
I CAN make you happy! Who else knows all your hearts desires? The Devil may be in on some of them, but he will only
tempt you with counterfeits that may look like theyll make you happy, but... I WILL!
Those who cling to the old ways of the flesh are going to reap the destruction of the flesh. He that liveth by the sword shall
also die by the sword. Theyll find out that they have been puppets in the hand of the god of this World, the god of war, of
hate, of pride, and of all that is an abomination to Me.
I want you to see right through him! He will have no power over those who will see right through him. Time will expose him
for what he really is, and when he is gone, time shall be no more.
I am much more loving, patient, longsuffering & positively inclined toward you, My children, than the Devil is trying to have
you believe.
The devil is the epitome of a politician. And the way he campaigns to gain voters & supporters for his cause is by an ugly
smear campaign against his Opponent: Me. So, he spreads all those lies about Me, about how unjust I am, how unloving,
how unmerciful I am, and oh whats one of his favorite words?- Unfair! And subtle & sly as he is, he manages to convince
quite a few with his propaganda. But dont listen to, much less believe his rap about Me not loving you! You mean
everything to Me! Dont let the old punk tell you anything else! I love you more than youre able to fathom.
Dont let the agents of darkness tell you youre too insignificant, youre not worthy & blah blah. They only have a chance
the second you believe them. But if you know they are liars, and all you focus on is Me, My truth, and My promises, they
know you are a greater threat to them than they have ever known. For you bear the light that will destroy them. Thats why
they hate & fear you.
The Enemy is the author of confusion, of self-righteousness, of contradictions, saying things but never really meaning
them, much less keeping his word.
The Devil is an artist of his own kind, and his art is to perfect selfishness & disguise it in a cloak & veneer of selfrighteously being convinced of the saintlihood & faultlessness of the selfish person, only able to see the faults in others.
THATS the perfection of the art of Lucifer, thats his masterpiece: PRIDE!
He easily finds entrance into the hearts of those who dont constantly remind themselves of how frail their foundation is
when they base their lives on their own goodness.
Only those who truly cast themselves entirely upon Me & My mercy & fully realize that anything good about them is
nothing of their own merit, only those who truly strive to prefer others to themselves, & only those who are willing to put
their own desires on the backburner in order to put Me first, only those find in Me the power to overcome him, the great
tempter, the great lover of self.
He that loseth his life for My sake the same shall save it. But Satan constantly reminds you of all you stand to lose: No,
you CANT give THAT much, are you CRAZY? Remember, everyone has a RIGHT to demand their MINIMUM AMOUNT OF
PRIVACY!!! The Devil is the advocate & promoter of privacy!
The Devil has become a master at subtly spreading his message, camouflaging it in cloaks of independence &
individuality, when all the while conniving to enslave them all to his demons, manifested in their own lusts, selfish
pursuits & ambitions.
Be freed from this lie, which has been binding you, tying your hands & stopping your mouth, keeping you from
proclaiming My truth as you should.
In this day & age, the Devil has greater power to exert over the masses the pressure to conform. His subtle message is:
Dont dare to be different, or youre going to be ridiculed, youre going to be cast out, youll be one of the losers! And the
sneers, snickers & shaking of heads by those around you will only confirm it. Thats why I have called My children out of
the great society, which is ruled by fear! Let their fear have no power over you, but rise above it, full of faith.
Many dare to be different in the beginning, but wind up with their tail between their legs & toeing the line, saying Uncle to
the System. With others its only an outward show, in that they pretend to be different. The Devil has to offer some kind of

114

superficial option to appear different, to create the illusion of freedom. But once you get a closer look you find out that
difference is only skin deep.
Everythings going to be alright! Even if it seems that everythings going all wrong, temporarily, for the Devil and his
cohorts are given temporary control over this world, you will see: Everythings going to be alright!
Rejoice, for your redemption draweth nigh!
Let Me restore unto you the joy of My salvation by looking at the wonderful things ahead, beyond the shadows that
surround you & are so imminent. Look through the matrix of the Devil onto the greater goal behind it, My Kingdom, where
nothing shall hurt or destroy. Where righteousness will cover the Earth as the waters cover the seas.
Yes, troubles will come, and troubles are necessary, in order for mankind to appreciate My blessings that I will bring over
them, even My rule, which they would resent otherwise. First they must see the righteousness of the Devil, before they will
be able to appreciate Mine.
Your Enemy would love to accuse Me of the same sins he is a master of himself, and he tries, but blessed are those who
have the faith to see through his lies, who have the discernment not to trust him, but look past the apparent sense his
accusations may make temporarily, expose them as lies & find Me again on the other side of the shady cloak the Devil
would have tried to cast between us.
Shady Cloaks of Lies is one of the Devils favorite games. As soon as he spins another one and he spins many he
looks for an appropriate victim to present it to, to see whether he can hypnotize them with it, distract them with it from the
truth, the only true Center of all, the only One Who could give meaning to their lives. Shady Cloaks of Lies the Devils
favorite game. Make people aware of that.
Its a fine balance to know when something becomes a distraction, or whether its something I want to use to draw you
closer to Me, so, youre just going to have to stay in tune with Me & make an effort to ask Me everything!
Passive rebellion is a very poisonous spirit. Its the silent type of rebellion many young people use to prove that they
were right all along. They try stressing your patience to the limit until you finally give in & then they can point their finger
& say, See? I knew it.
Satan knows what a loss it is to Me when one of My brides is too entangled in their own matters to come to Me.
Constantly focusing on the hole in the doughnut is a very dangerous trick of the Devil. Its the opposite of the glad game:
Instead of seeing the good things in a bad situation, he shows you the bad side of any good situation, makes you focus on
that which keeps it from being perfect.
Show Me and the world a grateful smile!
But if you let the Enemy cheat you out of the joy of My blessings by failing to recognize or to acknowledge them, walking
around under a cloud of doom all day because of whatever you think youre missing out on, nobody will believe you that
youve got anything more than what theyve got.
The god of romance, of physical love, of wanting to be loved instead of giving love is the one that has threatened to take
My place in My childrens lives more than any other god, and often he has succeeded, resulting in an empty, dissatisfied
life of one who has missed My highest calling & will for their life. Beware of making an idol out of any human!
Addiction to a human being can be one of the worst kind. It is an abomination in My sight for any of My children to make a
god out of anything or anyone else but Me.
I want to be the fulfillment of all your dreams. Your happiness is My goal, for that happiness will rub off on others.
Thats selfish! The Devil says. He just wants everybody to love Him! Yeah, so what? Who doesnt? At least theyre always
going to get love in return, and more, much more than they could ever give, while hes got nothing to give except for
fleeting selfish pleasures & momentary delights; cheap counterfeits of My true happiness. The Devil is the greatest party
pooper of all times.
You have got so much more than hes got to offer, because what youve got is real! Its lasting! Its alive, and grows &
multiplies & never stops! His version is as temporal as the kicks you can buy with paper money, which will always be
worth less tomorrow than it was today, and woe when the fire of testing comes!
Praise is the voice of faith, and the opposite is also true: cursing is the voice of unbelief, its the ultimate statement that I
am not in control, its the life-blood & breath of murmuring, the epitome & manifestation of thanklessness & ingratitude!
Trust that I can satisfy you fully. Dont let the Enemy get your focus on the hole in the doughnut & on all that you think
youre lacking & missing out on, when youre so richly blessed!
There is a great danger in not recognizing & appreciating My blessings, for usually the only way for Me to make you
appreciate & acknowledge them if youre unable to see them, is by withdrawing them & making you see them by the lack of
them when theyre gone.
Gratitude & thanking & praising Me is so important & such a positive force. Rebuke the Devil when he tempts you to stare
at the vacuum, the emptiness, the deep black hole in the middle, that black hole of your desires. Look at Me instead, the
great Giver & Filler of all things, & praise Me for all I have given you already even if you cant see it. But if you praise Me
for it by faith, I will make it visible to you. I will let you see your blessings, which the Devil has been trying to hide from you
with that shroud of self-pity, of comparing by making someone elses blessings look so much bigger than yours...

The Enemy was dealing with Me & said, Sure theyre all going to serve You with the fear in their necks that this world is
going to pot soon. But give them a little more time & theyll all fall for me, Youll see! And so, I had to grant him more time,
I had to grant him the ability to display even greater temptations than ever before, make his matrix look more appealing,
more attractive than ever before with all its glittering & shiny toys & distractions & enticements. I had to let him make Me &
My prophets look like fools to have been predicting an earlier doom, and now... Its true, many have fallen by the wayside &
have given in to the attraction & the lure. Many have been hypnotized by his sirens & have fallen asleep with the fumes of
his opiates.
But I will raise them up again, and you can be there to help them up. To show them youve been waiting for them. Yes, it
may still look like the Devil is winning, but not for much longer. Those who discern the signs of the times can tell that his
days are numbered.
The Devil may stand in front of you & sneer, What do you think youre going to accomplish with that tiny, ridiculous
flashlight of yours, in my all-surrounding darkness? But he only dares to try to bluff you because he knows you cant see
what he sees. That torch youre wielding is a searing hot weapon that makes his demons squeal & run, and he knows the
only chance he has of getting you to stop is to bluff you into thinking it doesnt really amount to much after all, what youre
doing.
And so, he tries to distract you with personal problems, makes them look much bigger, more important, more relevant,
than this unimportant little light... But, hey! Dont let him fool you! Its exactly the other way around: Your personal
problems are tiny, unimportant & insignificant in comparison to the monumental task of flooding the Devils territory of
darkness in My light!
Quit listening to the Devil & believing all the lies he tells you about yourself or others.
This is a war you should be able to enjoy because youre so far superior to your enemy! Hes bluffing & lying & trying to
trick you with his magic of making everything hes got look sooo big.
But all youve gotta do is snip your fingers & the facade collapses & you see the wondrous glorious reality of how things
really are, namely that I am truly in control, not he.
When I return, it will be like somebody snipped their finger & the spell of the hypnotist is broken. His illusion is NOT reality.
Even though there are a lot of hypnotized people out there who are convinced that what they are seeing right now is real,
your magic is much stronger than the evil magicians, & you can free people from Satans spell & wake them up out of their
trance! Refuse to let fear his greatest trick have any grip or power over you whatsoever! Come & get soaked in My
perfect love every hour of every day! Let us never be apart! Lets stay connected! He may growl & try his scare tactics on
you, or try to weave one of his hypnotic spells of doom & dismay, but you can zap him with the power of truth.
I have given you power over Satan, and I want you to apply it! In the name of the keys of the kingdom were gonna bring
Satan to his knees! Hes going to cower before you & whine & beg you to stop.
Im right behind you, & theres nothing the punk can ever do to harm you. He only will keep trying if he senses that theres
doubt in your heart. He only has power over you through any seeds he has sown in your heart that youve allowed to grow
there. But if your garden is clean and strong, filled with My life-giving Word, & youre in tune with Me, he can do nothing!
He only attacks when youre weak. Thats why its so important that you stay faithful & really make Me your A No.1
responsibility & focal point in life, every day!
How it pains Me when My children refuse to believe in Me, build a brick wall in the place where once there was a door to
Me, a door to simple, childlike faith & simple belief & trust in Me. Brick by brick, lie by lie, blocking Me out.
Break down that wall! You cant do it with half-hearted efforts! Youve got to put your heart & some umph into it! Break it
down!
Its a sturdy, solid wall, held together with the mortar of many disappointments, frozen hard with the icy winds of disbelief;
another spiritual plain, another dimension, one where I dont exist, or where I am very far away, like a vague shadow of
things long gone by a fairy tale, like Santa Claus.
And lo, there are many, countless in number, who live in that same world one where My light never shines, but only the
fake, artificial light of the usurper, Lucifer, keeps everything in a gray, hazy mist... so depressing! They dont even have the
hope of a better & brighter, more colorful world to come...!
I could be the answer to all their problems, & yet, they reject Me because of the lies theyve been told.
Do you see how important your task is? For you are so few against so many! Oh, if only you had greater boldness to stand
up for Me in a greater, not merely defensive way. Go on the attack!
The Enemy likes to operate incognito. If you would always recognize his voice as being his, you wouldnt fall for it nearly
as often... But often his sneers come camouflaged as the voice of reason or as your own thoughts. He persuades you
very subtly to adopt his opinion & view of things, like a very smooth & diplomatic talker, who manages to talk people into
his own view by making them think that his opinion is their own... After all, this is what you have always thought, too, isnt
it? And its very reasonable indeed, when you think of it! You were right all along... Making something sound like your own
idea, when its actually just his perverted way of seeing things is one of his oldest & favorite tricks!
So, check your thoughts & bring them before Me: Lord, is this attitude really Yours that Im having? Try the spirits,
especially the ones that enter your own mind!

116

So many hear the voices of the Enemy, the voices of self-justification, or listen to the debilitating voices of doubt.
The plenteous life-style has hardened the hearts of many, to where it has become as the stony ground in the parable of the
sower: they hear the Word, but then the Enemy comes and takes the seed away, the birds & evil spirits of the System
snatch My golden Words right off of their minds & hearts again, keeping them busy with other, trivial things to think about,
and the sunshine & warmth of the comfortable lush life dries them up, sucks the life out of them & prevents them from
growing roots in their hearts...
Truly these lands are stony ground. And almost the whole world is infested by this disease now in one way or another, for
the Whore has made drunk all nations with the wine of her fornication.
You have to come with determination, boldness and desperation before My throne of grace to find mercy & help in time of
need. And one important factor is not to let the Devil trick you into losing that desperation. Much is at stake here: the
destiny of nations; of millions of souls either lost or won, your eternal reward or regret, according to whether you did your
part that was needed to save them or not.
Break through that wall of deception; the Devils trickery & illusion, which causes you to fail to see the truth behind the
facade! Seek Me and the truth, the real picture more desperately, for you cannot rely on your own minds. You cannot rely
on your eyes and on your physical senses, much less that which you deem to be your own knowledge. Your own
knowledge can be worse than ignorance at times, because it closes doors that I would open. You think you can tell by your
experience that a certain thing is very unlikely to happen in a certain situation or with certain people, so you dont expect
miracles anymore, you quit, you surrender, you give up.
Through sin, Satan is able to attack you with condemnation. But only until you get a hold of Me & pump down enough of
My heavenly water to wash all that filth away.
You should not to neglect to pray against evil worldly influences dragging in the Enemys vibes, trying to belittle you, to
put you down.
The Enemy first makes you feel really bad about yourself, & so little in your own eyes, makes you hear all their sneers &
criticisms of you sometimes real & sometimes imagined then he amplifies them in your mind to where you feel you
could hide under the carpet or plain disappear... and there, down there in your little hole & shelter, sometimes over years,
you develop new confidence, but you harbor that resentment toward those people who used to ridicule you. You have
found out by now that youre not as pitiful as they are, you know now theyre deceived, but you cant really come up with
sufficient love for them to humble yourself & submit yourself into their hands, like I did, becoming their servant.
Youve got to find your own personal Mr. Smith, who is belittling & ridiculing you constantly in your own mind, renders
you ineffective in some ways. The demon who keeps asking you, Why do you still keep fighting when you should know by
now that its useless? Youve got to pinpoint him, nail him down, knowing that I in you am far superior to him, and that I
am going to give you the victory, & then look him in the eye, & say defiantly, Because I chose to! Because this is what Im
born to do: I am destined to fight & lick you bastard, Im destined to WIN! So, get out of my way, you little satanic
nincompoop, in the name of the power of the keys!
You have many enemies. And youve got to fight them one by one. They know they cant stop you, so they seek to delay
you by bluffing you, intimidating you or attacking you with fiery darts of doubts.
You are the light, and they hate you! They seek to obstruct you, for they know they cant put you out. So, they try to
weaken you from within, trying to stop the flow of the fuel, so your light will grow dimmer, for less people to see than if you
would really get on fire for Me and burn!
The Enemy is trying to get each one of you so absorbed with their own personal little matters & affairs that you wont
manage to concentrate on the common foe, the common goal, much less to really unite and attack him.
The Selvegion are trying to make sure you will fight for your little comforts & commodities & rights.
Theyre only the infantry. Next come the archers, then the spear fighters & finally the horsemen. Or in terms of modern
warfare: next are the tanks, then the planes & finally the missiles.
What the Punk isnt realizing, is that with each battle, beloved, youre growing stronger. And with every new upgrade &
weapon he tries on you, you grow stronger & develop ever greater resistance against him. They will finally realize that they
wont have a chance against you from the spirtual realm anymore, and will see their last resort in attacking you in the
physical during the tribulation, and thats right where I want them. He thinks youre the mice & hes the cat, when all along,
youre only the bait to trap him into the physical world, where we will be able to finally annihilate his whole system.
Hes going to find out that in chasing you, hes bitten off more than he can chew.
How easily everything a man has is lost by pride. It's a gamble. 'Who's gonna give in first?'
Some never found out. Only to discover in tears much later that the issue that had caused them to separate was so
ridiculous, so shamefully ludicrous and downright idiotic... But thus is the wisdom of Satan.
His art & witchcraft consists in making mountains out of molehills, big monsters out of tiny little bagatelles. Small, tiny
seeds of dissention which grow into ugly big giants & demons of discord, hatred, disunity and jealousy, and what have
you... whatever divides, whatever drives a wedge between My people, My chosen ones, he knows that that's all he needs in
order to render a potentially powerful threat to his kingdom useless, or so weakened by comparison, that he won't have to
worry much anymore.

117

The Devil would like to sneak in & grab the glory for virtually everything thats pleasant under the sun.
What matters is whether you give Me the glory! Refuse to give it to him!
I am a greater Lover than the god of this World. He only seeks to enslave them, puts them into a trance & gets them
hooked on selfish lust.
But Im the only One Who renders all, Who gave to the blood to the death. No greater love hath any man than this.
Therefore, neither is there greater satisfaction, fulfillment & happiness in any other...
The flesh is almost like the false identity the Enemy wants to give you; the weak, sinful & despicable you. But you can look
way past that at your higher anointing & youll know what Ill make you capable of. That which you can be & are in the
spirit: the creation of My omnipotent hand, not the fake identity the Devil is trying to brainwash you to accept.
Refuse to accept the lower identity which the Devil & the System are trying to give you & that you render your services
completely to Me. Be a fully functioning agent for My cause & dont let them brainwash you any longer into believing &
accepting the loser role he would like to put you in.
You must be watchful that those cares of life dont choke the effect of My Word on your heart. The Devil is trying hard!
The Devil is always telling mankind that Im cheating you, just because I dont tell you everything there is to know all at
once, when hes the biggest cheat & liar of all times in fact, the father of lies.
Hes going to appear as the great savior from all My supposed injustices; I am the culprit in his version of the story, &
you are all My victims... poor abused guinea pigs, who are never being told the whole truth by Me.
Im not telling you lies, he is. And in order to distract from the fact that hes such a blatant liar, as usual, he points his
crooked finger at Me, accusing Me of not telling you the whole truth.
Your sample will never be perfect enough to withstand the onslaught of the Devils lies. No matter how good you are, you
could never be perfect enough for him to stop accusing you in the ears & minds of others. Look at Me: I was the most
perfect sample there ever was, and yet he was able to turn the mob against Me.
Hold the reins tight & not so loosely, as that is exactly the way the Enemy can get in: by giving all that leisure, & an idle
mind is his workshop.
Its the Enemy, through his tares & weeds of the cares of this life, along with his evil birds, his evil spirits that whisper
doubts & lies into your mind, that I dont speak to you anymore for whatever reason, which are subtly trying to crowd out
of your life your personal time for receiving My seeds. Tear out those thorns that wont let the seeds of My love sprout in
you. Tear them out & burn them, & follow Me into My chamber, completely forgetting about the Enemy & his old World. Let
him have this whole World, but let Me have you, & let yourself be full of Me!
Its wake up time! It was only a dream of a World of bondage in which you were tied down by his rules, his laws,
dependency on his kingdom & his system, when in reality Ive set you completely free!
You must shed the cloud of the influence & spirit & emotion that dream would have on you, the Devils dream world. Dont
let the Devils sleeping gas put you to sleep!
The Devil is just scared out of his wits, because he knows what I'm capable of doing through you! So he tries to pull his
cloak over you, his gray & gloomy veil of sadness, of loss, of defeat, when there's yet EVERYTHING to gain!
The Devil is sooo busy distracting My children from focusing on Me.
If you dont speak up about your desires & battles, & you dont give them to Me, either, the one who always winds up
running to your aid is the Devil, in the form of one of his emissaries, who will be eager to tell you things like, They hate
you, anyway & they love everyone else more than you: Hell also give you the desire to leave. After all, everyone will be
better off if you leave!
Just as My Spirit is manifested in fruits, like humility, love, patience, etc. (Gal.2:22,23), the spirit of the Devil has its
manifestations of pride, self-righteousness, hatred, jealousy, envy, bickering, strife...
To look for details that arent so in My Word is one of the Devils oldest tricks. Hath God said so? Ye shall not surely
die! And he was right: they didnt. At least not right away. But the punishment was there, & I tell you, it was worse for
them than death. When death finally came for Adam & Eve, it was like sweet relief from the pain & suffering they had
brought upon themselves & the whole World by choosing to believe the Devils lie over My Word.
So, the Devil will always find something I said he can point his finger at & gleefully say, See? Not true! to get you to
discard the whole message, so you wont believe & receive it, but rather believe his version. But youll be the one suffering
the consequences. Whether youll die right away or later: you will know one day that your death your spiritual death &
decline occurred the moment you chose to doubt My Word & disobey... you were just buried later.
The Enemys subtle message always promotes the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life.
Whatever doesnt promote Me & My truth, must be promoting something else... the World, the lust of the flesh, the lust of
the eyes & the pride of life... Even what they call love doesnt have anything to do with the real thing. That worldly concept
of love is one of the most dangerous illusions, robbing Me of more workers than any other of Satans tricks.

118

The Enemy knows who his most dangerous & potentially powerful opponents are, so hes not going to send out his troops
to attack those who are spiritually asleep, but those who are a menace & a threat to his kingdom. Hes going to try to get
you to lower the standard & compromise, using as an excuse the imperfections of the others.
Your flame is vulnerable, which is why the Enemy is trying to use water from within our own ranks to put it out (a trick he
very frequently uses, as nothing is as effective in dissuading a rebel for My cause, as criticism & lack of support from
within our own ranks!).
Dont listen to the Enemys voice, nor look at his distractions & decoys he comes up with as soon as you start going in the
right direction, just keep looking at Me and the power I have given you to blow the Devils nasty illusions to bits!
But some of his software is still integrated in your concept of reality. Whatever he tries to present to you as reality or
relevant is absolutely irrelevant, and doesnt stand a chance as soon as you let Me move in with My reality, that what I
consider relevant & important! The Devil goes: Oh, but the money, and all the bills... I say, Seek ye first My Kingdom &
the welfare of My sheep, seek My lost souls, and all these things will be added unto you, freely!
Ever since the Garden of Eden the Devil has managed to persuade people to rather believe in his voice than Mine, because
his option is usually the one which sounds more attractive! There is apparently more in it for you, if you choose the Devils
option of disobedience. But is it really so?
There seemed to be more in it for Adam & Eve to choose to eat of the forbidden tree: more knowledge, a new taste, and the
serpent even said, Ye shall be as gods! Now, THAT sounded interesting! But what was the reality? Curses, pain, thorns &
agony ever since, in trade for paradise.
What is it that makes the Devils option of disobedience so attractive to you?
Hes that very subtle voice, apparently coming from your very own mind.
What the Devil is offering you in exchange for the eternal rewards of fulfilling My highest will for you are the lazy comfort
of your Home and avoiding the ridicule you might suffer, the scorn some people might have for you. And for that youre
willing to let them go down the drain forever. No chance to hear from Me, no opportunity to make that choice...
The Devil always tries to find new ways to enslave people, to make them feel guilty or in some way indebted to him.
The Devil is a liar and a thief, & so are his followers. They're trying to rob My servants & enslave them, bind them so
they're not free to serve Me.
The Devil wants to strip you of your rights & your freedoms to serve Me, but I want you to rise above all that.
I have been raising a new army, a new generation of fighters out of the old. The Enemy has been mocking Me, saying about
them, "Just give them to me for a while, let me tempt them with my distractions, my lures & the enticements of the world,
and you'll see, they'll forget You, they'll all turn their backs on you! Let me twist their minds with worldly thoughts &
doubts, and see what a 'mighty army' You will have left when I'm through with them. You'll see, they won't care about You!"
But I have had faith in you, and though many have left indeed, whose hearts weren't fully with Me, I believe in you! And I'm
calling you all back to life this day, as it were from the land of the dead.
The testing period that the Enemy was given to try & tempt My brides is over! The time has come to attack!
You don't have to take every temptation the Devil hands you.
The Devil is trying to come up with more & more perfect counterfeits & substitutes & distractions all the time: more & more
perfect entertainment, shows, computer games, movies, System music & sounds, all available by remote control, so you
don't even have to move or do anything to get instant satisfaction; more & more perfect tasting food with artificial flavours,
made to even "top" My natural flavours I have put in foods naturally, more & more perfect drugs & narcotics... He's trying
to literally spoil people stupid so they won't ever want to get off of their fannies to do anything else but indulge in his
"perfections". After all, who needs anything else, if you can have all these "perfect" pleasures & entertainments? Who
wants to deal with real people, when the faces & bodies on TV are so much more "perfect"? Who wants to deal with real
life when the thrills & kicks he can give you are so much nicer, easier, better? Well, there's only one thing about it all &
that's that it isn't real. It's all fake & phoney, & you're enjoying it all on borrowed time & money, while in reality he's
cheating you out of your lives, your time, your energy and your touch with reality.
He's even come up with his very own counterfeit love. But in the end, none of that will ever truly satisfy, & when all this
artificial "perfection" will have left the World high & dry, he will come up with his ultimate counterfeit: his plastic one-World
religion, the "perfect" System, without any more evil, without any more money, without anymore crime... "Welcome to
Utopia!"
The Enemy hates My predictions & visions of the future & tries to ensure that the opposite is going to happen.
His attitude is, "Oh, yeah, did God say so? Well we're going to see about that!" And he tries all he can to foil My plans. The
Enemy never foresees the benefits of the backsliding he causes. He's only concerned with the temporary defeat & delay he
causes. After all, he knows he can't stop Me; all he can do is try to delay Me & My plans by throwing a few monkey
wrenches into My machinery, frantically trying to delay & postpone My future, because he knows the future will bring his
doom. He knows the Endtime events will trigger a chain reaction that is going to wake up & bring back to life many of
those he has successfully lulled to sleep.
The Devil has conditioned people to such an extent, puffed up their egos & blown up their pride & self-will thus, that it's a
mental habit very hard to kick to be selfish, seek your own ends & put yourself in the first place.

119

The Devil is a cunning master of propaganda & twisting things around with his lies. He'll convince the masses that black is
white & white is black, before long, so, stay snuggled up to Me in My camp, instead of listening to their distortions of the
truth.
The Devil isn't pussyfooting around, & he'll use anyone who'll let him & who'll swallow his baloney.
Is their body, their mere physical existence & its pleasures really that important to them that they're willing to completely
neglect their souls & spirits for it? Are they so duped, so fascinated by all the pleasures the Devil has to offer, just like
Pinocchio on "Pleasure Island", that they don't realize that Satan is making a spiritual jack-ass out of them?
The Devil is trying hard to stop you from becoming a completely yielded vessel. Anything that leads you back to the
comfortable path of compromise with the System & the old path you've been trotting, is less likely to be from Me than from
him. I want you to have change. He wants you to stagnate.
If the Devil tempts you with feelings of the comfort of the current situation "Oh, it's so nice where you are right now. You
don't have to keep walking...", don't listen to him! If he tempts you with his own fake imitations of the light & says, "Oh,
look over here: another light! Maybe that's the one you should follow!" - Don't listen to him.
He tempted Me not only with all the riches of the World, with power, etc., if I would forsake the Father's way & go his way...
Going his way would have meant to become a winner in this World, but a loser in the eternal task I was ordained to fulfill.
Don't let the Enemy tempt you with anything less than My highest & best!
Beware of the flesh & the pressure it would like to put you under! The rush & the fretting & fuming of thinking you must do
it in your own strength! It's the Enemy trying to trick you into that, so, don't fall for it, but be assured that you won't stand a
chance in the flesh!
Envy is one of the Devil's weapons to suck the joy out of life. Instead of keeping you thankful for what you've got, it keeps
you staring at the hole in the doughnut: "But there's something missing!"
Life is the best school, and I am its Teacher. The problem is that too few students pay any attention to Me, and the Devil
has lured them all away from Me and is keeping them all too busy learning & studying about his twistings of the truth, so
that they don't even have time anymore to learn from life itself.
Stress & pressure can be tricks of the Enemy to get you out of the gear of trusting in Me fully, and being led of Me.
The Devil is an artist at making a mountain out of a molehill, he amplifies bagatelles through his magnifying glasses of
excessive emotions, fears, sensitivity & the spectrum of a subjective point of view.
A subjective point of view often completely fails to see the overall picture & zooms in on a tiny little issue, magnifies &
amplifies it completely out of proportion until you've got a Mt. Everest of a problem, artificially inflated out of what was
originally a tiny little lump or innocent blunder of the mind.
Even the art of learning to love is part of the spiritual warfare, and your Enemy will always pose traps for you, in order to
stop you from accomplishing the goal of loving others, and causing you to hurt them unwillingly instead... Be on guard.
The Enemy will always look for an opportunity to attack & hinder, to divide & conquer and destroy your unity.
Watch out for the Devil's traps! He knows where your weak spots are & when you're most vulnerable.
Baal seeks to tie you down in self-condemnation, and belittling & hurting those around you.
Worship of Baal, in this day & age, is more widely spread than you would think, although men don't do it consciously or
are not aware of whom or what they are worshipping, just as they are not aware that they in effect worship the Devil by
worshipping their own minds & intellects & yielding to their pride.
You can see the worship of Baal in the way people are hurting each other and hurting themselves. He makes them hate
themselves, & thus also show little or no respect to others, but only disdain & contempt instead. It is Baal who makes you
look down on others, belittle them & causes you not to esteem them nor yourself. He is one of Satan's executives of the
hatred & disdain he has for mankind. It's that attitude of resigning to negativity & worldliness, using bad language or
hurtful words, a disrespectful attitude, caused by his criticism of the way I made you and those around you, or people in
general, with all your flaws.
If you can tell where this attitude comes from, namely not from yourself, but from him, this will help you stay on guard
against him. He is one of the perpetrators of hatred & violence on the Earth, one of the Devil's vilest officers, instigating
strife among men, persecution and discrimination & torture, oppression by the strong against the weak...
Beware of his evil inroads into your heart & mind by trying to get you to despise & look down on others, or even despise
yourself and your life, which is a precious gift I have given you. He is the one mainly responsible for your not enjoying the
ride of your life, not enjoying the company of others, not enjoying yourself. He constanty points at the "flaws" with which
I've made you and others.
Don't let the Enemy trick you into believing that I don't love you or that you're too bad to deserve My attention!
He tries. If he can't get through to you with his old lies anymore, he'll try to weaken you with new lies. That's his art:
weaving & spinning new lies all the time, so, don't you fall for them! Stay close to My truth, & be also faithful to expose the
Enemy's lies he uses on your loved ones, but do so in love.

120

The Enemy can't stand it when one of My children clings to Me desperately and is crying for help and crying out to Me as
to their only hope. That's like poison to him.
At first the Enemy is attracted by it, because he sees you weakened, and he tries to get you even more down and deeper
into despair. But what he didn't see was the poison underneath: the desperation, and the hook of My love and Salvation,
which unstoppably draws you closer to Me in such situations, and while he took a few nibbles at you, and thought you
were going to be his next meal, he'll find out that you're actually going to kill him, ha!
You're the Enemy's death, his downfall & nemesis. The deadly poison, that while it looked so attractive to him, and he
joyfully was trying to gobble you up, you'll be that which kills him from the inside like Neo did with Mr. Smith.
That's what you are to the Devil & his System.
You have the weapons of heavenly thought power, amplified by the keys and full possession, AME, prayer & praise...
imagine how powerful a threat you are to the Enemy's kingdom.
His only chance lies in trying to dissuade you from ever beginning to use those weapons.
That's the difference between the Enemy and Me: while I gave My blood to be shed for the World, he only takes. I am the
Giver, he's the taker. He thinks the World is His for the taking, but the truth is that everything of value has its price, and I
have paid the true price. Yes, he will also leave his place in heaven, not voluntarily, like Me, but because he will be cast out.
But instead of laying down his life, he will be the greatest taker of lives there will ever have been, like I said, a murderer
from the beginning (Jn.8:44).
So, you do have a dangerous enemy, which is why life isn't something to be taken lightly. It's dangerous to underestimate
your enemy or pretend he's not really there, to just avoid thinking about him or the threat he poses, or to wishfully think
that he probably won't care too much about you, and if you leave him in peace, he'll leave you in peace, too.
He hates you too much to leave you in peace, and he will either try to lull you to sleep with all his lures, hypnotism and
temptations, and cause you to let your guard down, or he will ferociously attack you with all he's got. His goal is the same
in either tactic: your destruction. It's up to you which way you will allow him to combat you. The slow & subtle poisoning
by posing as your "friend", bringing into your life all the tempting things that will cause you to lower your guard & defence
against him, or the open confrontation.
There is no peace with the Devil. If there's one enemy it pays to rather fight openly and not seek a moment of truce with,
it's Satan. Otherwise you'll regret it. Any moment of compromise, any moment you don't openly declare war on him and
fight to the finish, will be a moment that will weaken you! You've got to be constantly on guard against him, beware of his
presence as the enemy of your soul constantly, and never let down your guard, never think, "oh, well, he's not really that
bad... if I just close my eyes, he'll go away & perhaps he'll ignore me if I ignore him!"
You can ignore him safely by focusing on Me for your protection, that's alright. But never think that he's not there or that
he's not out to destroy you. That's the mistake that some have made. They underestimated him. They figured, "oh, well,
he's not really as evil or nearly as dangerous as he's always hyped up to be..."
Or they figure that maybe the others were too weak, but they're strong enough to withstand his temptations. They won't
give in to him. They're different... But little by little, one compromise will follow another, and he'll find your weak spot, and
you can always count on him to be a real Judas & traitor & to stab you in the back when you least expect it, when you're
weakest and let down your guard.
It's not a vacation your on, this trip through life, but it's warfare! I have sent you out as sheep among wolves, therefore be
wise as serpents - don't let him outsmart you - and harmless as doves, knowing that he may be able to destroy your body,
but you will be the true conqueror in the end.
Heaven just won't happen as long as the Devil is still in charge of this place! You can enjoy glimpses of it, but in order to
do that, you're going to have to get rid of the Devil's garbage first, that he's piled up in your life! You need to have daily
clean-ups, get rid of the Enemy's dirt first, be washed clean with My Words, before you're going to be able to enjoy that
heavenly happiness.
And you can feel the difference: "Now you are clean through the Words which I have spoken unto you!" Now that you've
listened to My Words, which have straightened things out, made things clearer, & washed away the garbage & filth the
Devil would have liked to dump in your temple of the Holy Ghost, which he will try over & over & over again to usurp.
Just like he will usurp the temple in Jerusalem in the End, so he already tries to usurp the temple of the Holy Ghost, which
is your body, every day right now, and you've got to fight to keep him out!
Lock out the Enemy & don't let him usurp your temple!
The Devil is trying to cast you into the pit of negativity, which is where he keeps an awful lot of his captives.
It's the supposedly "realistic" twist of things, or better the pessimistic twist, which always makes you see the downside,
even in your blessings.
The Enemy makes you see the flaws in others, or dwell on them, when you should be looking to Me and hear from Me what
you could do to help them or to remedy the situation, to make a positive difference. It's also the Enemy that makes you
belittle the treasure and immense blessing of the Words from Heaven and the weapons you were given. He makes people
doubt the power of the keys, the effectiveness of prayer & praise, and the veracity of prophecy.
Become My new creature permanently, by refusing to look at the waves of the negative reality of the Devil, and staying
fully in My positive Reality!
The Enemy is trying to stifle & smother communication that's spiritually edifying in any way he can. Although the physical
means of communication have improved & multiplied tremendously during your life-time, you can also tell how the quality
of communication has been deteriorating, as he gets people into an ever increasingly superficial & materialistic mindset.

121

He tries to tie them up completely in the physical realm, so that they'll be too entangled to even start looking for an exit, a
way to break through into the spiritual.
The Enemy rules the realm in which you live right now, and I want you to be aware of his devices, so that you can fight him
better & won't fall for his deceit. I'm exposing his lie with My truth. Just as I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, so he's the
wrong way, the Lie and Death, and the more I expose him to you, the more power you will have to expose him to others as
well, and show them what's keeping them captive.
His communication is all very one-sided, like someone who only likes to talk about himself, and thus he's also getting
people onto his same, selfish wavelength of only wanting to talk about themselves & all boring each other to death, when
they could find so much life, so much fun & excitement by focusing outward, first of all on Me, and then on others, helping
them to find true purpose in Me & truly deep & satisfying things to talk about.
For those that be wise in this world, the things of God are foolishness to them, but for those who know better, all that
"wise" talk is just so much vain & empty blah. The more they glory in their own greatness, and the greatness of their realm,
the greatness of their accomplishments, the more repulsive it becomes to My sheep, when they hear the stranger sing
songs of praises unto himself.
They inwardly know that he doesn't cut the cake, that he's only interested in himself, when it comes down to it, that he
doesn't have the love of God in him, and that all the things he may want to talk about don't really satisfy that longing for
everlasting values, and so, he just bores them. On the other hand, those who are enticed by his lures, and those who
short-sightedly settle for the cheap thrills & instant satisfaction of this world will easily become bored by talk about
spirituality. It's because they can't relate to it because their fields of interest lie elsewhere. They want what they can see &
touch & consume right now, they couldn't care less about eternity. All that interests them is right here & right now, no
matter how.
The Devil is such a liar, such a swindler, a real boogie man, trying to scare you out of the things I would have you do,
before you even get started, in hopes that you never will.
Every little progress you make, every step you take that brings you closer to Me, is a bit of new ground gained for the
Kingdom, and another victory over the Enemy! Don't let him make you feel like a loser, when you're actually winning.
It's one of his ugliest characteristics to constantly belittle everything & anything good you're doing or accomplishing, to
belittle the miracles I'm doing, "Ahhh, that doesn't amount to much! That's only a drop in a bucket..." And thus preventing
you from praising Me for what I've already done for you, attempting to keep your eye on the hole, instead of the doughnut,
the need, instead of My bountiful supply.
It's pretty hard to create new habits & a modus operandi that revolves around others when you've been spending so many
years revolving basically around you & how you feel & making yourself feel good... That's what intoxication is all about,
and any addiction that Bacchus tries to pull you away from Me with: numbing the pain, making yourself feel better. You're
not willing to face whatever pain & strain life is handing you & so you take the Devil's easy way out: "Oh, you don't have to
go through all this pain! Here, take this, it'll make you feel better!"
And instead of handing your pain over to Me, for Me to deal with it, you cheat Me out of an opportunity to help you &
manifest My power in your life, and you cheat yourself out of an opportunity to grow in faith and love for Me, because
instead of allowing Me to do a miracle in your life, you rely on Satan's counterfeit solution, which isn't a solution at all. It
just helps you forget or ignore the problem. What kind of a solution is that?
The Enemy is pretty subtle & very quick in building new Egypts, strengthening hidden & formerly unknown parts of your
"old man," & sometimes it takes time to even recognize them, which is expedient, though, in order to be able to fight them.
Relying entirely on Me and My sustenance for your living, you will come much closer to full possession & being guided by
Me non-stop! Beware of the Enemy's attempts to divert you from this! He will tempt you to get back into your old rut, but
you must not allow him, but stay true to this vision I'm giving you, because My sheep truly need you to be the shepherd I
have ordained you to be.
Any area of your life you're trying to hide from Me will be used by the Devil somehow as an area that My light isn't shining
on yet, so that's where he can play his game of "Shady cloaks of lies & deceit."
They who rule now will wallow in dust and ruin and lament later, while you will possess a peace and riches that remain.
The Devil hates you for that, but there's nothing he can do. Keep looking at Me! Pay no mind to him! He's bluffing, cheating
& lying! Zap his evil bubble of deceit! Expose him & laugh at him & ridicule him for his ludicrous attempt to stop you! I in
you am so much greater than he is... he's like a tiny little dwarf in comparison. You shall see it one day, and all the world
will wonder, "What? This little nincompoop has terrorized this world for so long? That ugly little dwarf? That's the one we
worshiped and by whom we were awed, thinking he was so great?" It will fall like scales from their eyes, & some will laugh
at this atrocity, others will cry.
Satan has been given certain power to change things in order to influence your perception of things. You see the truth in a
certain way, and he says, "Oh, yeah, really? Let's see if those things be so!" And he makes certain changes in order to
shake your foundation, that what you perceive as the basis of your concept of everything.
Hasn't this been his concept from the beginning? "Hath not God said?..." And he is very persuasive & powerful in
deceiving you & trying to get you to doubt & "forget what you know" in his own way. It is good, because like this, anything
you built your faith on that was not the true foundation will be eroded, and all that's left is the solid rock truth of My Word.

122

The Enemy's influences in your life at times seem more real to you than I. They achieve this just by stopping you from
praying! They do it subtly, and over a long time. They make you too lazy, or undermine your faith in prayer somehow, or
they tell you there's no need, or make you feel condemned so you won't consider yourself worthy of asking Me anything...
many different tricks & schemes... Attacks of doubt, discouragement, delusion, depression... Once you finally do call out to
Me in desperation, & ask Me to save you, I come through for you & will be the sunshine after a rainy day for you, and more.
When you feel the Enemy attacking you in your mind, go on the offensive! Refuse to let him play his dirty games with you!
One of the Enemy's favorite tricks is to blow your problems way out of proportion, just like Don Quixote's wind mills, that
you hardly see anything else. You don't see the progress you've already made, you only see the huge mountain & obstacle
blocking your way.
The Enemy tricked you into thinking that you weren't good enough for Me. He does it very subtly, and it's not even
consciously in your mind that you think these things when you're depressed, otherwise it would be too obviously the
Enemy. It's more like an underlying feeling. Demonic influences & oppressions not only manifest themselves through
thoughts in your mind, but also emotions, feelings, moods... the whole spectrum of your inner being.
Endurance means, you don't have to swallow the Devil's lies telling you that I'm giving you more than you can bear. And
vigilance means you can recognize the Devil's tricks & attempts to trap you so that you won't fall for them.
If I had to go out into the wilderness, in order to resist the temptations of the Enemy and overcome him once and for all,
how much more so will you have to do it.
Fighting and resisting the Devil instead of giving in to his temptations and nudges is what it's all about; not missing the
mark (the essence of "sin") because you've allowed the Enemy to distract you.
You've got to deal with the Devil & make it clear between him and you on whose side you stand, and that he won't have a
chance anymore trying to get you over to his side. Otherwise he'll keep trying and trying.
He tempted Me. "You don't have to go through all this suffering! You can stop it all right now! Make an end of all this
nonsense! Life is to be enjoyed..." Life was meant to be enjoyed, but never on his terms!
One of Satan's greatest and most successful weapons against mankind is that feeling, "It feels right, so it must be right!"
Or, "This feels familiar, it feels okay, it doesn't feel strange, so it must be the right way!" They become so familiar with the
wrong way, the Devil's way, that they actually think it's the right way. After all, it "feels right!"
The Devil's first appearance in the Garden of Eden was with the intention to get Eve to doubt My Word. "Hath God said...?
Surely NOT! Surely it is NOT so!" And he has been following that same scheme ever since, and your test in this is to either
stay faithful to My voice, or believe your "own intuitions," which, sad to say are often tainted by the input of popular
opinions, which often come straight from the Devil.
The Enemy of your soul is very sly and knows how to make his lies extremely attractive. People tend to think that they
would never be as dumb as Adam and Eve to allow themselves to fall for the Devil's lies, but that's already the first lie they
swallowed right there: "Oh, I'm never gonna be that dumb!" Well, you might have another surprise coming on that one,
when you'll find out one day how often and how easily you fell for the Devil's fairy-tales!
The Devil has invented many devices and inhibitions to stop humans from reaching out to each other. The fear of "what
the other might think of me," pride, false mental pictures and perceptions of each other, also called prejudice, even
laziness, because it takes a certain amount of effort to get to know someone...
The Enemy is trying to subvert & divert your attention from the spiritual to the physical, to where you become so
enwrapped and enticed by the physical blessing, that you neglect the spiritual.
The Devil always sees the negative and the bad in people, he's the constant accuser of the saints. That which I have called
holy and sanctified, he has the audacity to call unclean, accusing you of ulterior motives, when love is the perfect
motivation.
He hates love, because love is what I am, and he hates everything that goes along with it, and tries to besmirch it with his
ugly way of looking at things, be it sex or the need to give, the need to be needed, the need for sympathy, or plain
unselfish giving. He teaches his followers that it's "idiotic" to give, when they could keep it for themselves. But only those
who look beyond and have greater wisdom than those who fall for Satan's lies, see the greater blessing & the greater,
hidden reward beyond the apparent loss of the thing you gave away.
If you doubt My Word in one aspect, the Enemy will soon offer and suggest more compromises for you to make, more
disobediences he makes you think you can get away with...
One of the easiest & smartest ways for him to get My children trapped in the cage of disobedience is by telling them that
it's actually freedom... after all, it's their own will that got them there, not the seeming, apparent confines that lie in keeping
My commandments & performing My will, no, the apparent freedom of doing your own thing.
The Devil will always try to get you to not "feel like it" when it comes to doing something good, something that counts for
Me. The art is not to pay any attention to him, to ignore your feelings & do it anyway.

123

The Devil will try to deceive you into believing the way things seem to be - the carnal reality, but not the way I see things!
When you only look as man sees, at that which is before your eyes, instead of the heart, what's beneath, then it's easy to
fall for the Devil's lies of, "Aah, they don't need you or what you've got to offer them, anyway! Look at them! They look
better & happier than you ever did! What makes you think that they ever would have the faintest need of your religion, your
God or anything from you?"
Instead of giving them what you've got, & wanting to share your spiritual riches with them, you doubt, & you feel like they
have something better than you, and the Enemy makes you want what they've got!
You've been falling for the Devil's lies & false gospel of, "Blessed is the flesh! Blessed are the rich! Blessed are the proud
& those who don't need any spirituality..."
Don't let the Devil cheat you out of the joy of your reward by his twistings & turnings! The twisting & wiggling snake! It
gives you peace & a feeling of victory & satisfaction to know you have him exposed! You've got his number, you know
where he's at, you've got him down pat & he can't fool you anymore, pull no more wool over your eyes! See him wiggle &
wind! Clobber him good & hard, so he'll think twice before creeping into your door next time!
All My truly greats of faith, although Satan had desired to have them, in the end turned out to be way more than he could
handle, and they all defeated him.
One of the smartest tricks the Devil ever pulled was convincing the majority that he doesn't exist. But even fewer people
recognize the extent to which he is invading their own homes, lives & families.
Cloaking & hiding things is one of the Devil's games. He gives people that urge to hide things from each other, & to even
try to hide from Me. He wants to exclude Me. His goal is to isolate everyone into their own little worlds full of their own little
secrets they think they can hide away, when in reality, it's all laying wide open before My eyes.
The Devil tries to scare you that you might lose something through honesty, but you're only going to gain from it.
The Devil may pretend to be your friend, but only until he gets a chance to stab you in the back. Sooner or later his flag
comes unfurled, & the masks of deception will be dropped, and you'll find out that it all was a carefully concocted trap!
There is no peace with the Enemy.
Beware of the flatteries of the Enemy! When he sees that he can't hold you down anymore with condemnation, he'll try the
opposite tactic where he'll flatter you & will try to get you so lifted up about yourself that you'll think there's no way you
could possibly ever do anything wrong, until reality -or I - jerk that rug of wishful thinking away from under your feet.
The Devil is like a terrorist who has unrightfully taken over the land as a usurper, just like the Jews have taken over Israel
or former Palestine by acts of terrorism, having duped the people - just like the Devil - into thinking that their enemies are
actually the terrorists.
If the smartest thing he ever did was duping people into believing that he doesn't exist, the next smartest thing he did was
tricking people into believing that his enemies are the culprits, terrorists or "bad guys," which he is perfecting right now
through besmirching the image of My followers on a global scale, by having infiltrated and deceived them, or having
impostors pose as Christians, who are really working for his side, or by tempting them and afterwards accusing them to
the world.
It's the same diabolically clever plan he used since the beginning of history, from Esther's time to Nero accusing the
Christians of burning Rome, and on down the line.
The Enemy is by no means a fair opponent who abides by the rules. He is ruled by hatred, and he wants to destroy you by
any means, rules or no rules. He knows he'll be disqualified & barred from the game sooner or later, anyway, so his only
objective is to cause as much harm and destroy as much as possible while he can, that's why he is called the Destroyer in
My Word. (Jer.4:7, 1.Cor.10:10)
As you know from the story of Job, it's usually your Enemy who's responsible for, or involved with a lot of what happened.
Like the evil old man, Mr. Potter, in "It's A Wonderful Life," who unbeknownst to the hero of the story found his money &
kept it, and thus caused many problems & trials... that's the way the Devil works, too. He sees an opportunity to work his
evil plan, to exploit others in order to spread out his power & convert innocent villages, homes and entire countries into
one big "Pottersville."
I don't want My children to be ignorant of his devices. You may know about how his people work in order to gain control
over the world. But it's even more important for you to know what his tricks are that he uses to gain entrance into your
lives every day, how he sows his evil seeds of division & tries to divide & conquer!
Just like Potter stole the money in the movie, he sees where you're forgetting about the important detail of applying your
spiritual wealth & riches.
Once you start withholding, the Enemy tries to get you to make a habit out of it.
You must dispel the lies of the Enemy about what others think of you. That's one of his "Mr. Potter" schemes you're not
aware of, but you must be: he steals your faith, your unity and your love for each other by sowing lies and having you
swallow them, and you often don't even realize what happened!
He stole the "money," the riches of My love that I gave you for each other, by using innocent little blunders & blowing them
way out of proportion, creating a major crisis out of them.

124

You must expose the Devil's workings! You have to expose the evil "Mr. Potter" at work & show him up for what he really
is! He uses innocent little blunders of the mind, little neglects & shortcomings that everybody is prone to, and creates a
huge crisis out of them that makes you feel and think that nobody loves you and you're just a useless failure and the best
thing would be that you had never been born, etc., ready to jump off the bridge.
Thankfully, I've got My "Clarences," My angels, jumping into the situation to set things straight, to help you out, and to
straighten out your misguided view & perception of things. That movie is really a blueprint for what's happening in many
people's lives, of how the Devil manages to discourage and belittle them in their own eyes...
That's why it's so important that you constantly encourage each other, let each other know how much you love and need
each other, & don't give any place to the Devil and his dirty lies trying to destroy your faith, your unity & your positive
outlook on life!
Satan totally twists things & turns them upside down, inside out & makes things appear as the reverse & opposite of what
they really are!
Some things can be dangerous distractions from the Enemy to get you off the wall of the work that I want you to do, and
he doesn't hesitate to pull the meanest tricks & plays real dirty!
You need to learn to resist the emotional lies he's trying to hand you.
The Devil will use anything to deceive you, and if he even uses My Word by twisting it and falsely re-interpreting it, as he
tried when he tempted Me, how much more so will he be able to use your feelings to deceive you!
You don't have to grope around blindly in the dark, clueless to the machinations of the Devil & what he's been up to in your
life in order to sabotage My plans for you. You can find out. That's what prophecy is for. You don't have to be ignorant of
the Devil's devices, plans & schemes, in fact you shouldn't and must not!
You can't afford to be indifferent nor self-satisfied! That's exactly what the Enemy will shoot for, to get you to not rely on
Me, but just float around on an elusive & deceptive cloud of false security that somehow you're gonna manage. But
chances are you aren't gonna manage unless you call Me for help!
Deception is one of the Devil's big trips, and to be able to recognize his illusions is half the victory.
The Devil gives strength to the rulers and champions of the darkness of this world.
If you see the source of comparing as a trick & a deception of the Enemy to keep you from being content with what you
have & what you are, so you won't even start finding out what it is that you can do to make things better, then you actually
start living.
What Satan has stolen from mankind is the trust that I knew exactly what I was doing by making each one what they are.
One of the most dangerous tricks of the Devil, and one he uses most frequently and most successfully with My people is
that of getting them to lean on that which My Spirit has brought forth, rather than the Spirit itself! To rely on the arm,
strength and wisdom of the new creature I made out of you, leaning on your anointing, thus creating another "old man"
that needs to be shed, let go and forsaken again.
The Devil will tempt you with compromise. "Oh, but you can use both, the flesh and the Spirit!" But the more you fall back
into the gear of the fleshly methods of support, the less emphasis you will put on My vision for you, of truly putting My
Kingdom and My sheep first in your life!
You've got to realize how ferociously the Enemy fights you! There's no way you can afford to be indifferent or half-hearted
about it! I want you to be on guard & not ignorant of his devices.
Don't let the Enemy distract you from the most important thing in life.
If you leave a back door open for the Enemy through which he can enter, you have to count on the fact that it won't be
necessarily you he's going to be attacking, but the victims are going to be the weaker ones. So, in order to protect the
weaker members of your family, you need to keep all gates & doors & loopholes shut, through which the Enemy might find
entrance! He's always going to attack the weakest member first, and then, by having attacked them, he's going to strike a
blow from within that's also going to weaken you, and thus he has a chance to get at you, too.
Keep your mind stayed and fixed on Me. The Devil will fight with all he's got to keep you from doing that, because he
knows the minute you do, you become a powerhouse for Me, and he cannot cause any further delay, friction or
disturbance on the inside - until he gets another chance to distract you from Me again, somehow.
For many, worldly success has become a deadly distraction and a snare (1.Tim.6:10).
Exposing the tricks the Enemy pulls in order to sneakily rebuild your old man, shows that if you don't watch it, that old
man is going to creep up again, and before you know it, you'll find yourself stuck in a new Egypt the Enemy helped you
build in your life.
The Devil fights to make you forget all that you're learning from Me, & it's a little bit like having to start all over again from
scratch every morning.

125

It's your choice whether you want to do what you can to help your brothers & sisters or whether you prefer to play the
Devil's game & do it his way: "I take care of myself, and if that means I have to take something away from my 'brother,' I
will not hesitate to do it!"
Chaos is what war pretty much amounts to, & that's what the Devil is trying to create all along! Victory is to be able to grab
hold of My peace & heavenly big picture of My organized structure of everything in spite of the temporary chaos the Devil
tries to create. He may show you that devastated landscape he left you in, in the spirit, but you've got to see My heavenly
landscape & beauty of what's going to be & what really is in the heavenly realm, beyond all that ugliness the Devil's trying
to create!
The Enemy fights & tries to prevent with all his might your efforts to stay in tune with Me & hooked up to My Spirit, so he's
sending an additional band of his pests to try & make sure you stay tied down to his mundane limbo, instead of breaking
through to My sunny side of life...
The Enemy is saying, "Yeah, see here, the goodies you could have, over on my playground?"
If you feed your appetite for unrealistic standards in the carnal, it's as if you're tearing down & belittling and allowing the
Enemy to belittle what you've got!
The Enemy is very subtle, & if he can't get you to think bad thoughts or speak downright bad words, he'll try to get you to
say some idle word or think something that's not blatantly evil or negative, but vain, idle, of no positive, constructive
effect. He tries to have you stay "neutral." Not downright bad, but also not good. In other words, doing nothing to further &
advance My Cause & Kingdom.
Jealousy is like a poisonous cocktail of sins mixed into one, so, it's a very potent device of the Enemy. He has managed to
persuade some to perceive it as a virtue instead of a sin and a curse... which is why not many people have begun to tackle
it, to expose it or to help each other to overcome it.
I'm exposing the greatest thief of all, the Devil, who's constantly robbing people of their most precious gifts &
opportunities in the spiritual realm.
The Enemy will try to keep you from doing My highest & best, using all kinds of tricks & distractions and whatever he can
think of to keep you from doing the most important, the most urgent & necessary thing.
It's not difficult to disobey My voice, as you find out from the story of Adam & Eve in the Garden! It didn't take the Devil a
lot of persuasion. The only question is, have you been falling for his lies & his tricks enough times to have learned the
lesson of what truly is best for you, to be able to resist his temptations? Or are you still not any smarter, any wiser, & still
fall for his input, his version of the story, his alternative, his compromise?
Just like I'm providing an alternative for people to drop out of his kingdom & servitude to him, so he presents you with his
alternative to keep you from serving Me. Often it's a reasonable sounding compromise. "Hey, you don't have to do this
dreadful thing that God is asking of you. Look over here, you can do it like this, & you'll still get by... You don't have to
necessarily obey Him in everything He says....!"
The fake blessings of the Devil appear and fade into nothing as soon as the show is over. They turn out to have been
nothing but a fake! They lose their value and shining appearances as soon as the curtain falls: "Game over," "The End," &
"welcome to the Real World." They're going to find out that they have been fooled by the greatest fool of all, the great
impostor.
One must distinguish carefully between the false light of Satan & My true light. It's easy to be deceived by the
"enlightenment" of the evil one.
Ask Me to help you stay "on fire" for Me! Guard that flame, & don't take it for granted. Don't allow Satan to blow it out!
Beware of the flood of lies he tries to use to put out your fire, both, lies of the System, as well as the subtle little lies he
tries to implant directly in your minds.
Some people have been made so paranoid by the Devil that there isn't going to be enough room, space, food & water for
everyone on this planet, that they don't even grant the masses of poorer people in "underdeveloped" countries the bare
right & means to survival. And so, instead of sharing their surplus goods with them, they rather destroy them, burn them
up, and prefer to keep watching the poor starve. Just to make sure the world won't become "overpopulated." That's the
end of the road of disbelief, & the epitome and consequence of lack of faith.
A lot of people are allowing the Devil to steal away from them many an opportunity for them to see & glorify Me in things
that they are afraid of & think are evil, and many an opportunity to use these things as a witness.
The Devil scares people half out of their wits of being different in any way. That's his way of making sure that everybody
will dance according to his tune. What he calls popular shall be popular, what he calls "in" will be "in," and what he
declares to be the rules and the law, will be the rules and the law, by the sheer force of fear of being different, despised &
ridiculed.

126

Fear is Satan's biggest weapon to control the masses.


Sometimes the enemy has to be exposed first before you even know who you're fighting against. Sometimes he has to be
allowed to get under your skin, so that you realize how dangerous he can be, how much damage he can cause, and for you
to determine that you're not going to allow him & let him get away with it.
How can I teach you to fight without a battle? The Enemy is right there, right in your own midst, and you have to learn to
realize how he manipulates your pride, your selfishness, your desires of the flesh, your laziness, your addictions & your
worldliness, in order to become alert enough to go on the attack against him, instead of continuing in a state of truce and
peaceful coexistence with him.
The prince of the power of the air and god of this world with all his host - physical and spiritual - is your enemy, and he'll
try everything he can to stop you from succeeding in spreading My message. That's why you must pray vehemently
against him, for he influences the weather, he influences his followers on earth to mean you harm, to turn the odds against
you in any way he can, but if you stay close to Me and do what you can in order to defeat him, to get ahold of Me and My
protection, you'll see that in spite of all his efforts, you will still win.
You can't just let him pull his tricks and do nothing about it!
Don't make the mistake of not recognizing your enemies, and underestimating them. The Devil is capable of doing
anything except those things you ask Me to stop him from doing.
The god of forces is on your heels as Pharaoh's armies were after Moses & the children of Israel before the Red sea. When
you "wade in the water," remember that it will have been I who has delivered you from their attempts to wipe you out &
cause you to fail!
The Devil's goal is to limit everyone. Subtly, he does so under a cloak & pretense of "liberating" them from the supposed
narrow-mindedness of Christianity and conservative religionism. He pretends to be their liberator, when he's really the
limiter. I'm the one who opens the lid & stretches the horizon beyond limits, but he always tries to put it back on & keep
everyone boiling inside his kettle.
The Devil's trying to exert pressure on you from the outside to bluff you into believing that circumstances still have power
over you. He reminds you, "But what about this... and what about that? Shouldn't you be worried about this thing and
that?..."
He knows that if I can get you to truly and fully trust in Me, He won't have any chance whatsoever to control or manipulate
or influence you in any way.
The Devil realized that it's much easier to corrupt people by that constant flow of wealth, than by poverty. Poverty will
make them desperate, will make them return to Me and pray, will make them appreciate whatever little thing they've got.
But constant wealth will make them despise nearly everything and take it for granted. It makes you lose the power & will to
fight the very fight of life.
Part of the Devil's plan is to show that his is the "true" path of peace and love, whereas those who claim to have it, namely
the Christians, are utterly failing at delivering the goods.
The inability to be content in whatever state you're in is one of the Enemy's devices to keep you ever looking, ever longing
for something else to fill your "need for something" with, instead of just praising Me for what you've already got and
enjoying it.
The old serpent whispers thoughts of discontentment into people's minds & so they're ever looking for something else
than what they've got, never satisfied with what's right at hand, but constantly looking for new sources of satisfaction.
The Devil hates the Earth. He knows it's going to be My heavenly HQ for eternity, and so he does his best to destroy it.
It seems to be one of the Devil's favorite tactics, making everything older, telling everybody how old they are, making them
feel old, useless, outdated, etc.
The Devil's technique is called "isolation tactic." He sows division through his lies and manipulations in order to separate
you from the body, and then he'll attack you when you're weakened in your convictions, faith & confidence. Like a bunch of
hyenas, circling their prey & driving it away from the herd.
There is an answer to everything. Whereas the Devil keeps trying to brainwash people with his philosophy of eternal
insecurity and confusion: "We don't know whether there is an answer, because everything is relative, & blah, blah, blah."
"Man-pleasing," is a certain behavior one takes on in order to please a certain group of people, some sort of collective "big
brother" image, which the Devil uses to make certain personality types toe the line and behave, a "dictatorship of the
people."
Some image & projection is being created of what the herd is supposed to follow as the consensus and collective "will of
the people" (the Devil camouflages his dictatorship as "what everybody wants").
What's born of this, is for some a desire to be popular, for others a need to be accepted or simply not to stick out. Thus,
instead of sticking to what's truly right, you try to please "everybody" & live up to "their" expectations... It's all a trick of

127

the Devil to get you to chase some kind of ghost instead of dealing with those who are closest to you the mystery behind
the phenomenon that people always tend to treat those worst who are closest to them.
The people you're trying to please are often only an image that he and his demonic voices are making you believe in.
Instead, start dealing with, caring for and interacting with the real individuals right there by your side, in your house, on
your street, in your own village, town, etc.
The Devil doesn't want to give anybody a chance. He'd like to prosecute them, sentence them, judge and execute them all.
His input on anyone is about as bleak as it can get.
Don't listen to and fall for the Devil's imaginary "cloud of witnesses," which often really only consists of his cloud of
deceivers, made up of billions of lies!
The Devil is creating mental blocks and phantoms between people, and all those differences. Let them fade away like the
illusions that they are! Remove the false layers of the imaginations of the evil one and discover the real and true common
ground, the bottom layer, the true foundation, which is Me!
Even though the Enemy is the one who tempts them and seduces them into evil, it's ultimately people's choices to
succumb to those temptations that bring evil into the world.
Without cleverly gaining people's co-operation, there wouldn't be much the Enemy could do.
The Devil will always try to distract you from either your personal time with Me, or the time you spend and invest in giving
Me and My Word to others.
He's always trying to put some god in your life before Me; be it Mammon or pleasure, your own comfort... even food, or
intellectual input. He knows you're easily going to detect his tricks, especially as soon as you go overboard on something
& obviously exaggerate, & thus he's trying to distract you with a little bit of everything: a little bit of materialism, a little bit
of maintaining your image, a little bit of fun.
He knows he can't tempt you with blatant sin, so he'll tempt you with subtle & potential sin.
The Devil is waiting and watching, cunningly trying to manipulate things & trying to lead things up to some unguarded
moment...
Usually when you're low on physical and spiritual energies & tuckered out, exhausted & you feel like now you have a right
to let it all hang out, to just relax & even be a little selfish, that's when he's got a chance to come in.
He knew he wasn't going to even get close to tempting Me with a downright lie or untruth, so he cleverly used the Word to
tempt Me. He used the truth in such a way, that it would have resulted in disobedience to God, had I followed through on
his advice. And he's using that tactic with a lot of Christians these days.
Don't let him cheat you out of the greatest blessings & rewards by listening to his "it's time to relax now," when it really
isn't!
Youll be able to tell the difference between My kind of peace I give you, and the false, premature peace the Devil is trying
to bring right in a crucial and decisive moment of battle. He's so corrupt, wicked and deceitful that he won't even hesitate
to call for a truce right in the middle & thick of the battle, namely, when he knows he's about to lose. The stupid thing to do
then would be to listen to him. The right thing to do is to say, "Truce? No way, dude! You must be dreaming!
Tell the Devil, when he attacks through pride, "I know you're telling me right know I already know everything there is to
know, but I'd rather make double-sure & check in with the Lord."
You need to expose these workings of the Enemy on the subconscious level and become aware of them. Something may
feel so right, like "the way that seemeth right unto a man," and at other times they can seem so wrong, but only I can tell
you exactly what is right or wrong.
What's wrong is what always has been wrong, since the beginning of time: Satan has deceived mankind and brought sin
into the world and put you under the curse, so, it's a whole lot tougher to really find out what's the truth, thanks to the
knowledge of good AND evil. From then on you've had to learn to discern the truth from the lies, the good from evil, and
the art is especially recognizing the evil within yourself. It's plenty easy to recognize it in others...
The only power the Devil holds is over the mind, but once you refuse to even recognize that power and go forth in the faith
that I am well able to overcome all that, the battle is yours.
The Devil tries to deceive you into thinking that you're still under the curse, and thus everything appears to be cursed. But
I have blessed your life with My Salvation, lifted the curse from the lives of those who have received Me, who accepted My
sacrifice for them, those who absorb My existence.
The contrast of the picture portrayed against the background of evil will help everyone to see clearly.
Evil will teach mankind and all of creation a vital lesson, just as dung and fertilizer will bring about better results in a crop.
It's a necessary part of the work; ask any farmer.

128

The Enemy will always do precisely what he knows will stop you from making progress in the particular area I want you to
make progress in.
The Devil tries to inflate the egos of those who disobey Me, and at the same time to belittle those who do obey Me. He's the
"coach" of the wicked, and he will spur on and encourage those who do evil, and he will try to discourage those who do
good.
I know that it may seem like an impossible fight to win, against such a wicked and sly foe, invisible, unrecognized and
operating in stealth, even unnoticed by some of those who should know better. He hates to be exposed. Those demons including the ones that are lingering around My children and try to influence them and stop them from making progress &
true spiritual forward-movement - know who their potentially most dangerous enemies are, those who can see their game
and look through the games they cause their victims to play.
But all you must focus on is My love for you, it will be stronger than any hatred, resentment and rejection you may
experience.
Humility is a gift. How badly do you want it? How important is it to you?
If you really treasure it as something valuable, then you won't let the Enemy steal it away from you by tempting you to feel
superior, or to ridicule others, or to play that tit for tat game of pride, of they reject you, so you reject them.
That's the Enemy's goal, to kill your love for them, so that you won't ever even start reaching out to them, to try to win
them to Me.
The Enemy will try to drive the biggest possible wedge he can between you and those I want you to reach. He tries to
persuade you that it's pointless and useless to even try to win them.
That's where you're going to have to decide whether you're going to believe him or Me.
The Enemy knows what tricks he needs to pull out in order to slow you down & tempt you to give up, to say, "it's no use."
He knows a lot about you and your weaknesses, and what you're the least likely to be able to handle. Well, that's his job for
Me: to test you & find out which your weak areas are, and what it will take to get you to give up.
If nothing can cause you to give up, then this means you tested "negative" to any infection with his virus of the loathsome
Giving Up disease. But sometimes you've got to build a resistance to a disease or virus first. You've got to recognize what
you're up against, what his weakening tactics are, and for this you need to have experienced the symptoms first, and have
been confronted with the virus & the disease.
That's why the theory of Evolution was such a success for the Devil: he always likes to show people the possibility that
they may have been wrong from the very beginning.
Once he has weakened your faith in the very basis and foundations of your beliefs and faith, soon there will be no
stopping point.
The Enemy will go about with the same tactics he uses to destroy worldly families, and try to sow division and dissention
between you. But that's where you've got to fight. Do something in order to prevent it from happening: fight. Refuse to
believe the Devil's input of "it's no use anyways!"
He tries to overwhelm you with problems and obstacles, things that aren't right, that he instigated and planted in the first
place. But you must not allow them to persuade you to quit!
That's all Satan really has to offer: the lie, the illusion, that which man thinks he knows.
The knowledge of evil that Satan brought into the world, is nothing but an illusion; a lie; a deception. They may think it's
fact, and they may call what they consider knowledge or reality, but reality as I know it is something quite different.
The Enemy tries to have you believe that you're having a legitimate reason and excuse for self-pity.
He tries to make everybody's situation look like the worst possible to them. That's why it's so important to praise Me and
be thankful; show an attitude of gratitude, and why praise is such an important factor and key.
The Devil knows what you hate the most, and tries to rub that in all he can. He provokes those situations you hate. They
don't just happen by coincidence or karma. They're attacks from him, which means that you must be significantly
important to him as an adversary, that he would go to such lengths to make your day miserable, in order to stop you, slow
you down, stifle your testimony. And that should make you wonder why. It should make you go, "Wait a minute, if the Devil
goes to such lengths to slow me down or get me down, then there needs to be a good reason for it. If it wouldn't be
important how I react now, then he would just leave me in peace and ignore me. He'd try to lull me to sleep and keep me
happy. But I must be doing something right, so he's trying to stop that."
Remember that you're a live one. It's you that his demons attack, not those who are not doing anything or going anywhere
for Me. In other words, your trials and battles are a direct result of your doing the right thing, like that quote, "when you
decide to serve God, all hell breaks loose," or, "The Devil doesn't start shooting until you get over the top..." As long as
you accomplish nothing, he'll leave you in peace. But if you're doing My will, he'll attack you, because you pose a threat to
him. It's like people who feel threatened by others with power.
So, consider it a privilege, a sign and manifestation of the power that you have, if the Devil is attacking.
The battle shows that you're on the right side, that you're a winner. It shows that you're still alive, and that the Devil
considers you an enemy he should try to stop and slow down. That means you're accomplishing something that counts. It
means he hates you and you're not his friend. Isn't it good to know you're on the right side? You're on My side!

129

The Devil is trying to make the world look friendly and not so bad, but remember that he is the usurper trying to take My
place as ruler over My creation, and while he's in charge, you simply cannot feel at home in this world.
It's important that you discern who is your enemy, and who isn't, and one of the tricks of your Enemy is to try to get you to
blame and attack someone else, to focus your anger on someone else. He has tried this many times by causing division
and causing you to become upset at one another. If he doesn't succeed at that, he tries to create other "enemies" for you
to focus your attention on, all the while preparing another attack.
It pays to be alert to the Devil's tricks and not fall for his bluffs.
Finding out that you're not quite as righteous as you thought is a rare and precious gift. It's like discovering another place
on your "system" you weren't aware of before, where the enemy sometimes likes to hide his agents & where he can work
in the dark, undetected. But not any longer, if from now on you will choose to be aware of this device of his, this technique
& variety of self-righteousness.
All the Enemy can actually do is try to have you believe something that's not true. Oh, he'll mix in some emotions in order
to give more weight to his lies and make them sound more true, but ultimately it all comes down to your personal choice
whether you're going to fall for it or not. And choosing not to is as simple as saying "no."
You just say "yes" to Me, "yes, I believe You, Lord," and "no" to him, that's all, especially in a situation where he'll try to
use condemnation. My love for you is greater than all: greater than the impact of your sin, and certainly greater than the
Devil's justice or his desire to see you prosecuted and judged for anything you may be guilty of. I'm your Defense Attorney,
here to protect you from the incessant accusations of the Accuser of the Saints, especially to yourselves.
If he manages to make you feel guilty and hopeless, and you're just about to surrender and agree with him, ready to
concede to his verdict, I'll step in & say, "Objection!" I see things differently. I see all the background circumstances,
conditions and reasons that caused you to sin and to fail, and I am ready to pardon.
I will turn the Devil's evil into My good. It is the fuel that I use to combust it and convert it into My clean and powerful
energy. I virtually thrive and power My motor on the combustion of evil. For where sin doeth abound, there grace doeth
much more abound.
Anything the Devil can do is only fuel for My motor. All the Devil accomplishes through his rantings and ravings is produce
more fuel to keep My machine moving toward the completion of My plan and Big Picture.
Remember to give Me the first place. Otherwise the Enemy is going to try to paint his picture and his colors onto the
canvas of your day, and it ain't pretty! He's trying to ruin My picture, the picture I would make out of your day, just like he's
trying to make something ugly out of My entire creation, My big picture (Prov.29:18).
It's not My trip, that you've got to accomplish, accomplish, accomplish, or you can't stand to live with yourself... In fact, it
rather looks like the Enemy's tactic to Me: "Keep'em busy! Too busy to get into talking with the Head-honcho, before He's
going to let them in on what I'm up to!"
Don't let the Enemy distract you with busy-ness, don't let him keep you busy, busy, busy, too busy for Me and what I've got
to say to you. No way of taking care of My business if you're too busy for Me.
The Enemy will try to get you entangled and under his yoke and in the bonds of his slavery. He will try all kinds of tricks &
use all kinds of pressure to get you trapped in his "snare of the fowler." You are My free songbirds, and he's trying to catch
you to lock you up in one of his cages! Guard the freedom I have blessed you with!
The old man, your carnal man, is like an old operating system that doesn't want to give up its realm easily, although it has
already been replaced by a new and better one.
Of course, the Enemy actively tries to install the old system again, your old ways of doing things, your old habits, or the
old ways of the flesh sometimes in a new disguise.
Once I start using you, that's where the Devil comes in and starts reminding you of all your old and besetting sins and tells
you it's useless, or you're useless, that I could never use you. That's what condemnation basically amounts to.
The Enemy will do and try anything to smother your effectiveness for Me. He will try today. He will try tomorrow! He will try
everyday. Not just once, not just twice, but many times. He will try through friend or foe, and, unfortunately, he more often
succeeds through your friends to get you to compromise.
The Enemy never fights you when youre strong and on top of things, because he knows he has no chance then. He only
fights you when youre down and weak, hes a real coward and hyena.
One of the best portrayals of the Devil ever is the coward Scar in The Lion King, who usurps the true kings kingdom, has
him killed, and the true kings son needs to wander off into the wilderness.
The Enemy always makes what youve already got look like nothing, compared to all the elusive things he would offer you,
ever since Adam and Eve in the Garden. They didnt know they were living under the most perfect circumstances possible
right there, they fell for Satans lie that there was something better than that, which I was withholding from them.

130

What makes you think the devils got any control? He may exert some control over his, but in the end, Im the One Whos in
control of everything, and none of the plans and devices he concocts can harm you if I dont allow it, and I wont allow it, if
youre in tune with Me.
Money is the one thing the Enemy invented to direct peoples focus on in order to totally distract them from Me. Money has
been his most successful tool.
The Devil is a good advocate when it comes to rooting for his own cause and advertising his own righteousness, which he
figures is so superior to Mine... And he anoints his people with his mantle of apparent righteousness and justice, his
shining examples of what he would call "good," and his idea of righteousness and perfection...
The Enemy will attempt to distract you from your goal and vision by planting ideas and desires in your mind of things
you'll want, some of which will sound good and reasonable, but will only be second best & will divert you from the task of
living for others.
The Enemy makes you feel like I'm asking too much of you, "The door knob's too high" So, have a realistic look at
things, discern the truth.
Real life comes from the Spirit - the flesh profiteth nothing, it doesn't avail much, when it comes to making happiness last.
The Enemy seeks to cheat you out of it, by telling you that you've got to earn it, work it up, etc.
But happiness can't be bought. It is only received in finding Me and learning to let Me do through you the things that will
bring happiness to others.
You need to be aware of the fact that the Enemy is going to try all he can to snuff out your flame! He wants you to be cold
and sick! He wants it to be dark, he doesn't want your flame to light up the landscape and the surroundings, nor does he
want others to find warmth by your side! You've got to fight for it, you must fight to keep the fire alive!
The Enemy constantly uses pride, ambition, greed and other inborn human factors and sins, the tasks with the more
promising rewards... the great accomplishments that pay off in immediate, visible results, like cash, applause or appraisal,
recognition, reputation, popularity, etc., to distract people and lure them away from what is really relevant.
Some people want to be in control... exactly what Satan promised in return for disobedience: "Ye shall be as gods." In
other words: "You can be in control yourselves! You don't have to follow and obey this God that you don't really know
what He's up to..."
The Enemy tries to put you back on a spiritual chain, once you return to the stake of the flesh, and he doesn't want to let
you go again. And I purposely allow you to stay down there and experience how tough it can be to get back out of the
groove of the flesh and the carnal mind again, because I want you to be fully aware of the risks involved and the
repercussions you may have to deal with, that you should consider before allowing yourself to get back down there.
My joy comes from caring for others.
That's one reason why the Devil tries so hard to discourage anyone from even starting to serve Me and live for others. He
knows that they might start liking it, and that it could cause some kind of a snowballing effect that he might not be able to
stop.
The Enemy is trying to get you to carry the burden yourself. But your primary responsibility is to pray and ask Me for help,
not to try and carry the load yourself!
As you walk My path, and people start to pay attention to you, the tests are becoming harder, and the Enemy thinks up
more intricate schemes to deceive you and lead you astray. The immediate, tangible blessing is often accepted at the cost
of the hidden, unseen and eternal blessing.
It takes desperate seeking of My face and of My will to find out which is truly My blessing, which is the Devil's temptation;
which is truly My will, and which is the will of the flesh.
Backsliders and apostates are sometimes capable of greater evil than those who never found Me. The Devil makes them
mad at the unconditional forgiveness they received in their salvation, and they want to prove that they're not worthy of it,
that it was a mistake for Me to ever grant them that salvation. The Devil uses them to show what a "fool" I was, in his eyes,
to ever save them in the first place, and die for them.
There is no other way to overcome your Enemy than by getting to know him, his tactics, his schemes, his ways of
operating.
Those who choose to basically remain oblivious to his very existence, much less get to know his modus operandi, will
look a lot worse when the final battle and clinch comes.
You have to learn to be able to recognize the Enemy at work in the circumstances he uses and manipulates, never losing
site of the fact that if I allow it in the first place, then there must be a good purpose in it.
One of the Enemy's principal jobs is to supply you with legitimate excuses for quitting!

131

The question is: will you accept and use that excuse? Or are you going to be wise enough to look through his scheme and
plot?
Is it any wonder people should react negatively to Me when the Enemy has been lying to them about Me, telling them that I
don't love them, won't accept them and reject them?
The Enemy tries to "remind" you that you're no one special at all, just another wicked human, like all the rest of them, just
so you won't make any runs to the "bank" and pick up something that you don't deserve in the first place.
But heaven and all its blessings are not earned on a merit basis. You either have the right and you are being granted
access to its riches or not, no matter what the Enemy may do or say. In fact, the only chance he ever had is that you fall for
his bluffs and believe any of this stuff.
What Satan says or tries to make you believe is irrelevant. Like any treacherous enemy, he won't recognize your authority
just as you won't recognize his, since it is only an authority he falsely claims as a usurper. He may attempt to intimidate
you with his displays of authority and power, but you know none of it is real, and his days are numbered.
The Enemy sows enmity wherever he can: enmity between people, even hostility between brothers and sisters, enmity
between animals, and enmity between man and animals. If you follow the Enemy and his way, you'll reap enmity.
If I'm the air that you breathe, don't let the Enemy rob you of it! Don't let him steal your oxygen.
The Devil often infiltrates My children's minds with his input, and consequently they wind up on his wavelength...
Often you underestimate the impact of his input and the extent to which his input is being spread and made available. One
strategy of countering the Enemy's input more effectively would be to counter his doctrines and expose them, nullify what
he's saying by My truth.
In public schools he makes it imperative that children sit and listen to his drool until they don't mind hearing it anymore,
start tolerating it and perhaps even start liking some of it. But even if they don't, one of the worst side effects of it is that
he's killing any hunger for true knowledge in the effort, since they figure they're already learning more than enough.
The less you do to counter Enemy-input in their life, and the more passive your attitude about the issue becomes, iIt's as if
you're allowing him to have the control over their life, and thus also a little bit over yours.
The essence of the Devil's success in his brainwashing techniques of the masses is that he makes them think that what he
wants them to have is actually what they want.
Of course, the essence of My teachings to counter that would be to seek not their own will, but Mine in their life, which
would mean the voluntary sacrifice of some of the things they want for the sake of My will...
You're going to have to turn up the flow of My input and My power in their life, if you successfully want to counter the flow
of the Devil's input pouring into their life!
The Enemy will try to revive your ego, and make your own, carnal self strong, remind you that you can do it yourself, and
try to get you to rely on yourself and your own carnal strength as much as possible, just to avoid your letting go and
letting Me and My Spirit take over and take control.
To totally trust Me means gaining the victory over the fears and lies the Enemy will plant in the heart and mind.
The Enemy is trying to slow you down and reduce your fruitfulness for Me.
Whereas, if you just stay close to Me, no matter what happens and is going on around you, My Spirit will just keep working
in you and through you, and there's nothing whatsoever he can do.
You've basically got to ignore all the shiny temptations that might cause you to give yourself the glory, instead of Me, and
other things he will try to use to divert you.
You still have to learn to shut off the "emotional circumstances" that the Devil often creates, and see past them, see
through them as illusions. They're spirits that are causing them. Spirits that make you feel unwell about something or
someone, but you have to realize they're often either lying or hindering spirits.
They're trying to get you to disobey Me, by creating illusions or fake obstacles in the path of doing what I've been asking
you to, so that you will use them as an excuse, a "legitimate reason" not to do them. You must find out how "legitimate"
those reasons really are. Are they real, or just mental fabrications by the Enemy?
Whenever the Enemy is trying to tell you why you shouldn't be expected to actually do something I told you to do, you can
safely assume that he's lying. After all, that's what he's best at.
It just about the only thing he's good at: faking things, concocting lies, creating illusions, deceiving people. He's truly the
great deceiver, and it is by his deceit that he destroys. In fact, by his deceit he gets people to destroy each other. He
doesn't do much of the dirty work himself. But he delights in watching all the wreckage and carnage he causes by his lies
and deceit.
The Devil is the champion of conformity and the opponent of variety, of the liberty and freedom to dare to be different.
He may pretend to champion the cause of "being different" when it comes to rebellion against God, but only in order to
lure everybody into his trap of endlessly boring monotony and similarity where everybody just does things his way,
believes what he dictates, and - believe Me, he's not nearly as innovative, nor as mindful of variety as the Father and I.
The devil is constantly trying to change My rules and make his own. He figures if he's god down there, then he might as
well change the rules, be the rule-breaker who wanted to be a rule-maker, and of course, he's making a terrible mess of it
all.

132

Simple obedience and submission will turn out to have been a much smarter and wiser way than all his smartness, and the
sum of all his wisdom which he's applying selfishly and in the wrong way.
You've got to counter the counterfeit "realness" of the devil with My actual and total Realness.
The "prince of the power of the air" (Eph.2:2) gives his power to his people.
I have given man the power to control the elements to some extent, and especially in this day and age, where Satan's
power and the control he exerts over the earth comes to the full, you will find that his people are being given more and
more power.
Of course, that's a little hard for some to swallow. They figure, if the Devil and his people are being given that much power,
then what chance do they stand against him or them, with the little faith they've got?
They will get surprises when they come into My Kingdom and will have to realize how things have really been.
It will show them that the reason they did not achieve all that much for Me in this life is the fact that they underestimated
the Enemy. They simply could not imagine that he would go to such lengths to fool them, to trick them, deceive them, and
manipulate them. They figured, I was handling everything, so that they could just float along on the stream of life with an
attitude of "que ser, ser," when in reality, it would have been up to them to fight a whole lot harder, because the Enemy
was a much more powerful threat to the Salvation of mankind than they were willing to see.
They didn't want to see the full scope of the danger the Devil represented to mankind, because if they would have, it would
have also meant that it was expected of them to fight a lot harder than they actually did.
Some people have got a vacuum that is as big as a black hole. Their addiction and greed for everything is all-consuming,
it's demonic, and it's no use trying to satisfy that sort of hunger.
It's like feeding a ferocious beast that ever cries for more and more, just like that gigantic cuckoo baby outgrowing its
parents, sitting in the nest and wreaking havoc.
They can tyrannize entire families and larger groups and communities, to whatever extent they can get away with.
I want you to become like a river. Before, you were just trickling, but you're slowly starting to flow, and I want that flowing
to finally turn into rushing, and even raging. Of course, the Enemy would like to stop or pollute your flow.
His first tactic will be spiritual pollution through temptation and compromise, and if he realizes he won't succeed with that
tactic, he will try to stop the flow by outside circumstances and persecution, or other difficulties.
You realize why the Enemy has allowed some rivers to continue to flow and yield their Christian output to the world: it
must have been polluted. He figures, if he can manage to pollute it, then it won't do as much damage to his cause, because
folks are going to die sooner or later from the pollution and poison he managed to get in there. That's why it's of utter
importance that you stay clear of his pollution, and that you stay pure and clean.
The Enemy advertises the self as an entity worthy of attention that quasi amounts to worship, in order to satisfy it and
make it "happy."
The devil just allows a tiny little bit of truth and mixes it with a lot of his own poison of selfishness, and his lie of the
version of the "greater cause."
It's no wonder you can't see clearly now, or that you don't feel at home in that world, nor too happy, because, basically,
what it amounts to right now, is a pile of garbage. The king of garbage and slop permeates the atmosphere and every
sphere and realm of the living, trying to convert it into the realm of the living dead.
The only thing you can pin your hopes and dreams on, is the future, a future in which all that sickening garbage of the
Devil will finally disappear and life will at long last be what it ought to have been all along.
No way of ignoring the Enemy's workings. No way of getting around having to deal with his devices and tricks he uses.
One of the greatest temptations of the children of men is to always want to have the afar-off, to want what they don't have,
to despise what they have been given, and instead only crave and focus on that which they have not. It's one of the Devil's
favorite tactics to breed discontent.
Distraction is the name of his game, in order to ensure your destruction. That's why you've got to remain vigilant and on
guard.
I've had to let you experience the difference between walking the path of light, and thinking you're walking in it, all the
while following the voices and phantoms the Enemy camouflages as Mine.
He has done so since the beginning of time, and it's only life's experiences which truly teach you to know the difference.
The Devil won't fight those who show forth their own righteousness.
Since he advocates his own righteousness, he also encourages people to develop their own sense of righteousness, and,
of course, the message he's trying to spread, is that everybody is basically more righteous than God and His followers,
and he tries all he can to make Me and My followers look as bad as possible.
He certainly won't ever give you credit for anything truly righteous you did for My Cause. And he'll always inspire whoever
he can to be voices of his own criticism of you. If you refuse to listen to him, he'll find mouthpieces who'll voice audibly
what he's got to say to or about you.
The grass always looks greener on the other side, especially to My sheep, for whom the Enemy, the great Deceiver,
constantly puts up new magic acts, specially featuring and presenting the glamorous, glorious and oh-so-wonderful other
side, trying to minimize what it is that you've got over on your lawn, among your own flock...

133

The enemy can really create some confusion at times. He has always been the author of confusion, and he knows his only
chance is to get your focus off of the light and blur your vision.
As long as you can see clearly who is the enemy, and who's your friend, and you stand united against him, he knows he
doesn't stand a chance. Only by bringing about this confusion where you can't tell who is friend or foe anymore, does he
gain a chance.
If this outfit is really the one major threat to the devil and his kingdom, then he's going to do whatever is in his power to
dissuade you, to convince you otherwise, that they're not really worth it, that there must be something better somewhere,
making a serious effort to make this group look as stupid in your eyes as he possibly can in order to weaken your support,
your loyalty and determination and conviction to fight for this cause.
One of the most effective tricks the Enemy uses: "Wait until something better comes around."
- Something better than what? - A better life? - Better circumstances?
Better circumstances won't come by themselves, you either have to create them or ask Me to do it for you.
One of the devices of the Enemy he has installed in habits and minds is to always be on the look-out for something else:
"What else do I need? What else should I acquire in order to attain happiness or satisfaction?" It renders people unable to
just enjoy whatever they're given, when they're always on the lookout for something else in this big supermarket of
consumerism, where you're constantly tempted to look around and spot new things you never even knew you wanted...
The devil's weapon to stop you from appreciating what you've got and putting your whole heart into it is creating an
endless array of new shiny things to keep you distracted.
The Enemy is trying to prove that the world doesn't need Me, nor you. He's trying to play Me, the great filler of every need,
of every hunger, and he is nearly triumphant now and saying, "See? Everybody's happy now! Who needs You now?"
But you need to look a little bit below the surface. It's true that in the pampered West they're glutted with everything one
may crave - physically or intellectually - occupying and distracting their minds, but not ever really satisfying their hearts.
You must look beyond the appearance the Enemy is trying to create.
How much are you in tune with My reality, see through My eyes, and see and hear what I perceive, not the impression or
picture the Enemy and the world portray? How much do you fall for their show?
When somebody wants to be friend of the world, they just have to experience what it means to become enemy of God,
siding with the Enemy, and fighting against My Cause, for He that gathereth not with Me, scattereth abroad.
Spiritual short-sightedness comes from the abuse of your spiritual eyes, focusing and glaring too much at the Devil's
shiny distractions...
The Enemy is trying to create his own reality for his dupes, in which people like you are the "bad guys," and if you weren't
around, everything would be "nice and clean," a wonderfully working, happy System.
In My reality it's the other way around: you are the good guys, because you're telling the truth and exposing the System
and its puppeteer behind the scenes, and how evil it really is.
It's the Devil's type of "perfectionism:" "Ethnic cleansing" and racism has all been his own idea, because he would like to
create tons of little carbon copies of himself, very much like "Mr. Smith" in the 3 rd issue of "Matrix." Satan is a lot like "Mr.
Smith," in that he detests mankind, and if anything, wants to absorb and assimilate them into his system, and convert
them into his obedient slaves, totally yielded to him, without any will of their own. He may pretend to be the hero of the
"free thinkers," but in reality, he's not nearly as much into free choice as I am, as his "New World Order" will show, at the
latest when he will make the mark obligatory for anyone who wishes to survive...
He's really a dictator at heart, and all his "goodie-goodie" show that he's pulling off right now, of being a promoter of
democracy, etc., and "let the kids have some fun," is just that: pure show. As soon as they're all in the trap, he's going to
pull the plug, and the fun will be over, once and for all.
It's not going to be called the "Great Tribulation" for nothing: the fun will be over, period.
He's going to come up with what he's really good at - the only thing: creating hell on earth.
He'll show his true face, eventually.
In the Spirit the victory is already won. It is already done, and nothing the Devil could ever do can change that...
If you realize that anything the devil and his ilk can do is only fuel for My flame, then you can focus more quickly on the
greater good behind it all.
This doesn't mean that there isn't a war to win and no enemy to fight. It just means you won't overestimate him and won't
be intimidated by him, because you'll know in the end, all he can really do is pester and annoy, but he can't really inflict
any real and lasting harm on My chosen ones, as much as he may try to prove that the opposite is true.
The Enemy is going to be instrumental in bringing about My plan, since the world won't be ready for My one-world religion
until the devil will have imposed his on them. They'll appreciate what I have to say, once they'll have known the kind of
spirituality or moral code the devil had to offer...
Sometimes the Devil uses some strain of success as a big distraction from keeping My people going in the direction I want
them to go.
Those who don't believe in Me, don't have the Devil to fight against, and thus often have an easier time doing good than

134

My followers. The Devil uses it to point his finger and say, "You see, those guys don't even believe in You, and yet
accomplish more good than those who follow You!"
He generally makes it easier to be good on people who don't officially believe in Me, and thus don't give Me the credit for it,
and instead he tries to see to it that My own folks besmirch My name and the name of My Cause as much as he can.
Without taking into consideration the existence of the Enemy and all that he's up to, things really don't make any sense...
No wonder people get confused. It only becomes clear once you realize what he's up to and how he's scheming behind the
scenes, and what his purpose and goal is.
One of the big lessons is the importance of little things, such as establishing a good, solid and loving relationship on the
smallest level, first of all. The Enemy tries to distract you with "more important things" in order to get your focus off of the
greatest mystery of all, so close to Home. He's trying to get you to focus outwardly in a wrong way: some "out there"
distant glorious future of usefulness, glory and honor, when My way of focusing outwardly is something a lot more down
to earth: on a level of personal relationships.
Its all about communication, tuning in to each other, being considerate of each other, each other's needs, and being of a
helpful attitude toward each other. One of the greatest hindrances in this is the suspicion the Enemy sows by making you
doubt others' motives and truthfulness. You've got to keep believing in your people. You've got to project something good
into them, instead of the doubts and negativity the Enemy would cast over them in your mind's eye.
You're simply not prepared for the way the Devil makes you suspicious and distrustful of each other, when you walk
through your day without My heavenly guidance and input.
It's the only thing that can keep your vision clear and pure of any of that dark and negative input from the Enemy about
each other and just about everything. The Devil likes to pull everything through the mud, because like this he can influence
you to the point where you lose your zest, your vision, your inspiration for life.
He's coming at you from so many angles simultaneously in this day and age that I have to make an extra effort to help you
be aware of his devices. Only I can give you the input you need to help you be grateful for life in spite of the black, gloomy
picture the Enemy likes to draw of everything.
He tries a different tactic with everyone: for those he's trying to lure away from deep, profound and spiritual things, he's
painting that picture of "everything's honky-dory" and "what are you guys all so panicky about?" While those who are
already aware that something's wrong and fishy, he tries to discourage with a hopeless outlook so that they won't feel like
it's any use to try to do anything about it in the first place...
I give you My positive input and incentive, and then it will be up to you whether you will allow the Enemy to steal that
positive view, to get you to doubt it, or whether you manage to stick to it, cling to it, believe it, act on it and remember it.
The Devil and his forces permeate this present reality and influence it according to their liking.
They go, "C'mon, let's have some fun and mess up God's creation and the beauty of things some more!"
When he'll pose as the great "solution giver" through the antichrist, he'll just tell'em to stop all the things he's been egging
them on to do all along thus far.
It's not that he would really care about the environment, much less the survival of mankind. He's just interested in lording
it out over creation for as long as he possibly can get away with it, but he knows his time will be short once he'll be down
here for his "grand moment."
He's an illusion artist, and he can put on a fairly convincing show. Are you going to fall for his deception?
If you are My child and fight the devil, you need to be prepared for the Enemy's attacks.
It's something that's simply bound to happen if you're fighting on My side, and that you ought to be prepared to deal with.
The Enemy will attack your kids, and try to attack you through your kids! You must reckon with it to happen, as unpleasant
as it is. But the more you're prepared for this type of situation, the more skilled you will become in handling them.
If to love is My greatest commandment, then it's obvious that that's what the Devil will fight the most from keeping you
doing. What he hates most and tries to stop the most is the love you have among each other and for others. He wants to
stop all the loving from going on, and that's been his goal from the very beginning, and as you can tell, he's been very
successful at it. He uses every sin available to keep you from loving.
All that the Devil can do with the stuff he shows man, is bring death. He's the bringer of death, I'm the Bringer of Life, and
we'll see in the final round, which is stronger. Once you've overcome death, what other obstacle could there possibly be?
All the Devil's power is in death and the fear thereof, so, be of good cheer, I have overcome all that he can muster up!
One of the first tactics of the Enemy to prevent Salvation from happening is to make people blind to their sin, and to the
fact that theyre slaves and captives of their sins and need liberation and Salvation from them.
The second tactic is to make those who do see their faults think that theyre absolutely powerless against them, and that
theres nothing anyone could ever do about them, but thats precisely where youre supposed to come in and show them
thats wrong.
The Devil has many different tricks and devices in order to keep people from observing the most outstanding duty, many
ways of preventing them from seeing the need. Either he gets their focus on everybody elses sin (self-righteousness), or
he distracts them with physical matters, making them blind to spiritual issues (materialism), or he makes them hopelessly
resign to their fate (discouragement), all of which are distortions of the truth, which would make you free (See John 8).
Be aware of the Devils devices through pride, and the damage he can cause pretty quickly, if you dont stay on guard.

135

Satan likes to enslave everyone, and he furiously hates people who refuse to be loyal and obedient slaves of the Matrix.
This is why he comes up with all kinds of cunning tricks to come up with new little matrixes for those who have found a
way of operating outside his mainframe and the big Matrix. So, remember that I have called and ordained you to be free. I
have come to set you free, so, dont be surprised if thats what you actually are, and dont let the Enemy put you under any
condemnation about it.
What the Devil is trying to stop the most from happening, is love, because that is the proof that Im still around, its the
trademark of My existence. And as you know from the Scriptures, one of the signs of the time of the End in which youre
living is that because iniquity (or unbelief) shall abound, the love of many will wax cold.
Hes trying to kill the love, not only in the world, but also in My people around the world.
He manipulates people subtly and cleverly into operating out of selfish interests, and so selfishness, sometimes subtly
disguised, is often the true incentive that motivates people.
You have to discern the effort the Devil and his folks are making to get people to doubt Me, My existence and authorship of
the universe. Up Here, theres no doubt about how it all happened. But down there you live in a sea of doubts, and you are
little islands and bastions of faith in that sea; islands that are growing with every bit of knowledge you discover that
solidifies into another piece of land when one more paradigm of doubt has been replaced by another fact of faith
Of course, all this is heresy and narrow-mindedness to the legions of darkness surrounding you. But whether you will
allow that to influence you, or whether you will decide to let your light continue to shine all the brighter, that is up to each
individual.
Its hard to see the reality behind this farce, that in spite of its phony youthful appearance, this world is really rotting and
dying, and almost decaying. Theres nothing fresh about it. They have allowed sin to enter, and the wages of sin is death, a
death that is now rapidly creeping all over the world. They may not notice it while the music keeps playing and the laughter
drags on, and their fancy dances, but its all just a farce the Devil keeps going, under the motto the show must go on,
only to hide whats truly happening beneath the surface: theyre getting ready for the total enslavement of mankind.
Sorry if the real thing isnt all that nice and shiny as the plastic fakes the Enemy creates with his illusions, but it has one
advantage over his fakes: its real, very much unlike those seemingly perfect imitations the Devil creates.
Just as My Realm and Kingdom is the spiritual one, so the Enemys kingdom will become more and more the realm of the
flesh, the physical realm, where soon the game will be played entirely by his rules, under his rule and actual, physical
leadership, with the sole exception of those who will not have been deceived by his scheme, but see through it and can
see it coming and happening right now. Its coming into being, the Devils kingdom of darkness on earth, the creeping
death thats inevitably taking ahold of them and their world.
Correction and taking it used to be one of the most natural things in the world, but the Enemy has boosted peoples egos
to such levels that taking correction has become something more and more difficult for them, especially in Western
societies where the Devil has been undermining family values for decades.
Pride and self-righteousness are responsible for an incredible amount of evil in this world, because it makes people march
off to war innocently in their firm belief that theyre doing a right thing for a right cause
Youre going to have to do some exposure work, find out whats behind it, and whats causing the deception What are
the lies the Devil is telling them that get them to believe that theyre blameless? What are the fears the Enemy uses in
order to get them to refuse to face and confront their own mistakes or even the existence of such?
There is nothing wrong with the way I made you.
It just takes a little while to discern between what are genuinely your natural inclinations, and that which becomes the
exaggerated, sinful version of a natural desire that the Enemy tries to promote in order to make you feel guilty about it
afterwards, just as it takes time, experience, and skill to learn to discern between what is truth and lies in the world
It takes time to learn to expose the workings of the Devil in your life, and the way he operates, but once you do, things
become clearer, and it becomes more obvious to you what is okay and what isnt. And in the meantime, making mistakes is
whats going to help you find out all the quicker.
The Enemy is like a sneaky lawyer. He knows all the rules and clauses in the law, and he tries to get away with whatever he
can, so youve got to put your foot down and make clear that you know what your rights are, know My Word, and the
clauses of My contract with you, My Promises. You know what you have the right to ask for and to expect, and you wont
let the Devil cheat you out of it.
The Enemy makes sure that what people really need is being withheld from them and then makes them look for and find
the counterfeit versions of love and the attention they seek, in the System.
The Devil and his people are best at the art of creating lies and making them seem so real that the majority of people will
accept them as facts.
Its part of the curse of the Devils promise: Ye shall be as gods. That god-hood definitely has its disadvantages,
especially when youre trying your best to serve the true God and that little pseudo-god ego keeps piping up, Hey, but
what about me?
The Enemy is trying to spread his poisonous gospel of acquisition everywhere, trying to pollute and corrupt peoples

136

minds everywhere with his more, more doctrine of greed, materialism and hedonism.
The Devil likes to build all sorts of mythologies around himself. Hes the big pretender, and hell pretend to be anything just
in order to deceive and appeal to anyone, similar to the way presidential candidates make promises to certain groups of
interest, howbeit not with any serious intentions of ever keeping them.
The one thing you can always trust the Devil for is that hes a liar and a pretender. He simply doesnt have a knack for the
truth, even though he may go around exposing Me and My people for our sins, all the while busily covering his own
filthy tracks. He is also the epitome of self-righteousness and hypocrisy. Woe unto those who have him for their god.
I want you to preach the Gospel and tell people about Me in order to free them from their servitude, slavery and bond-ship
to this false, evil god and usurper.
If you follow his philosophy, youre sunk, and instead of Heaven, youll reap hell.
Man-pleasing is a very popular religion among young people.
The Devil figured that some folks just cant be fooled into worshiping things, so what is the next-best thing, right after Me,
even created in My image, that he could get them to worship? People. So, hes got hordes of folks bending over backwards
trying to make it right for their peers, worshiping their opinions, their approval, and their reaction to them.
The Devil will always try to get his platform and his moment in the spotlight, and sometimes he can get quite bold and
dominate the scenery, but youve got to trust Me that even those situations are for your good.
The Devil chose this time of technological advances to make his big appearance and reveal himself to the world, a time
during which man is showing the ultimate of his strength, wit, achievements and knowledge.
It makes Me and My life seem more irrelevant, more distant, more humble and smaller, less impressive to those who are
carnal minded, compared to all the great achievements of man and the supposed progress he has made scientifically,
socially and in the ways hes making his presence on the planet seen.
Man has become somebody, and its in that kind of environment that the Enemy would like to present himself as the
greatest somebody of all. He wouldnt have been satisfied with being a relative nobody like Me, preaching to and
caring for a bunch of primitive people, comparatively speaking. He likes the kind of pompous ado that you and I never had
a knack for.
Loud and proud is the name of his game. He comes across loud and proud, making an awful noise thats sure to catch
everybodys attention and will distract them from My still voice, but he will also subtly orchestrate some movement behind
your back to eliminate you if you threaten to stand in his way. Thats why your only hope is to stay close to Me, always
attentive for My checks, My nudges, My hints and My counsel, because only I can let you in on what hes up to in your life.
You could never figure it out yourself.
Hes trying to discourage you and get you to quit and give up through the battles he brings on in your life. Theyre real
attacks, and not just staged tests to keep you humble or desperate. I allow them, but its not as if I orchestrate them. I am
not the One Who leads you into temptation. Im the One Who leads you through it when it hits you, and helps you come out
alright at the other end. Youve got to be sure that Im the One Whos on your side.
The Enemy is telling you that I couldnt possibly love you if Im allowing what he does to you, but it just shows the atrocity
of his attitude: You see, God couldnt love you, if He allows me to be so mean and cruel to you and make you go through
all these trials In other words, hes saying, If God were prefect, He wouldnt have made me like this. But as I told you
before, you become the way you are by means of your own choices.
When you are going through an attack, dont blame Me for it. Its not exactly like by allowing it to happen I make it happen.
You have an Enemy, and hes very real, and hes not kidding, hes really out to stop or destroy you. And while I do have the
power to stop him when he goes too far, and I can say, Stop! This far and no further, it doesnt mean that his attack was
My idea to begin with.
He happens to be the culprit because he happens to have chosen that role, but I didnt make him do it.
Just because Im all-powerful doesnt mean that Im doing it all! I leave a lot up to you and to the other participants in the
story.
Often the Devil projects his own personality on Me and makes people think that the way he is, thats the way I am, but you
who know Me, must realize that thats not true. Im quite different from him, in fact, the opposite!
The Devil is always partly right about his accusations. Otherwise nobody would ever believe him. He always uses some
half-truth as a hook or bait. The question is, are you going to take that half-truth and swallow it, along with the lies that
follow?
Usually, people do. And the result is the end of a happy, peaceful period in paradise. The Devil just cant stand to see
people especially My people living together in peace and harmony, so he constantly cooks up new devices and means of
destroying that harmony.
The Devil is fighting viciously to stop you from what youre doing.
The Enemy wont stop trying to get you to replace your need for Me with the need for something else, some substitute hes
trying to get you dependent on and addicted to, whatever you will allow him to use to crowd Me out of your life.
Its your life-style that the Enemy hates and fights so vigorously and thus sends monkey-wrenches into your midst, often
in form of the worldly interests of your children, or by your own desire for a more comfortable life. He tries all he can to

137

destroy your testimony and tries to stop you from being who you really are.
If the Devil, the father of lies, is the god of this world, then what do you imagine permeates the world, and what sort of
philosophies run and govern the world? Lies Lies are the foundation of the System, and truth acts like a destructive
ingredient when confronted with that kind of pie-in-the-sky matter.
It just so happens to be the nature of the Enemy that he likes to lie, and when hes running out of other things to lie about,
and when he sees that he doesnt get any further with his lies about Me, then he resorts to lying to you about each other.
When he sees he doesnt have a chance anymore to destroy or weaken your faith in Me, then he intends to destroy your
faith in each other.
And in the same manner that he used to lie to you about Me, that I dont love you because youre not good enough, etc., he
then starts making up lies about your brethren, or your mate or your children, etc., that will alter your perception of them,
just as his other lies used to tend to alter your perception of Me, or yourself, or of life altogether.
You dont have to take and accept everything the Devil hands you. Sometimes youve got to say, No, thank you!
He pretends to be your friend in order to weaken you, so that when the showdown comes and he shows his true face, you
wont have what it takes to resist, overcome, lick and beat him.
You must forego the negative, distracting input from the Enemy in order to stay empty and hungry for Mine. Ye cannot
drink of the Lords cup and the Devils.
One of the Devils old tricks is to pose as some older, wiser brother who says that its okay to enjoy the forbidden fruit; its
okay to enjoy that worldly entertainment, its okay to go easy on yourself
The problem is that the devices he offers seldom, if ever render true happiness. They only yield a temporary relief from
thinking.
Whatever has befallen you, you can always safely assume that somebody else somewhere at some time must have had it
worse than you, and that youre quite blessed.
The Enemy tries to amplify the pain and darken the picture by whispering in your ear, as if he was your friend and
sympathizing with you, when hes responsible for the mess and the situation in the first place. Hes the real culprit and
traitor, and if anything, it should strengthen your resolve against him, and your determination to fight him to the death.
Hes the author of the lies that cause the confusion, the misunderstandings, misconceptions and suspicions that cause all
the hurt and alienation, so hes the one you should direct your anger against, and whom you should fight accordingly.
Youve got to see the spiritual cause behind what happened, and see what his goals are. He wants to make you feel like
giving up and like surrendering to your fate, and as if the others were your enemies!
Hes trying to discourage you from reaching out to communicate because he knows that would be the end of his scheme.
Communication is a killer of Satans schemes, thats why he tries to fight communication between you, and also with Me,
tooth and nail. Communication is his dilemma, his nemesis. He cant stand it, because it is bound to expose his scheme
sooner or later and reveal just how ridiculous all those lies and suspicions were that he was trying to sow in your minds
about each other.
Not every battle My children ever fight is won. Not if theyre not aware of the Enemys devices, if theyre foolish enough to
ignore him or in their pride refuse to see him at work in their own lives
The Enemy will try to usurp any area of your life that youll allow him, and he knows exactly in which particular areas hes
most likely to have success.
Youre up against a cunning enemy.
The realization of just how sad and sick Satans promise of Ye shall be as gods really was, along with all its consequences, is
the first step on the path toward true godliness.
You feel overwhelmed by the apparent superiority of the Enemys presence everywhere in this world. But thats where faith comes
in that still sees Me in everything to an even greater extent than the Enemys power.
Politically, morally and culturally speaking, it can be said that hes got the whole world in his hands. But only those with great
faith can see the extent to which he has taken over this world, but still know that in reality it is I Who have got the whole world in
My hands, and only allow him to pull off his little game of playing god of the world for a little while, along with all his little
gods who follow him and his lets all be gods scheme.
He may still feel all-powerful as long as hes in My Realm, the Spirit Realm, but once hell be confined to the limitations of the
physical world, the magics going to wear off real fast, and hes not going to make half as graceful a picture as god of this world
as he and his followers may imagine him to be right now
Hes going to turn out to be just as much subject to sin as every other slave to their own lusts and evil in their hearts since the
beginning of time. The evil he actually introduced into the world at the beginning will turn out to be his own demise and Achilles
heel, as it will turn on him and cause him to make the mistakes that will cost him the ruler-ship over this world.
But since most people deny the Devils existence, and the fact that he is the present ruler of this world, theyre also perfectly
unaware of the extent to which theyre being lied to.
The Devil is really giving it his all in this day and age, and the Early Church didnt have a fraction of all that to deal with that My
children are having to deal with today.

138

The Enemy will do all he can to divert you and distract you from what I want from you, from tuning in to My voice, or
yielding your will to Mine. He will fill your head with own ideas of what would be a good thing to do, usually the thing one
grade below the best you could do for Me.
The best and My highest will for you is a small and narrow pathway strewn with many temptations and detours that may
look a lot more inviting, but if you want to avoid running around in circles or beating the air, youve got to keep walking on
that small and narrow path, and not fall for the wide and comfy detours of the Enemy.
The Enemy is not interested at all in having man find out the whole truth about the universe, because it would
unmistakably point toward a Creator. He wants to keep everyone in the dark, so that he can come strutting in as the great
light-bringer and illuminator of mankind
He has already tried to establish that I couldnt have been it, since it wouldnt make much sense to the average person how
the Son of God should have lived such a humble, short life, and died such a humiliating death. Thats certainly not his idea
of divinity, and those who are just as short-sighted as he is, agree, and are getting ready for a taste of his act instead. Well,
time will tell which of the two makes more sense in the end.
While the knowledge of evil, the Devils input, may nearly always contain some truth in it, its his diabolical, evil slant and
twist on it, and the wicked way in which He applies it to get you to doubt or mistrust Me, that makes it so dangerous.
The false information of the Devil seeks to get man to place his trust in himself.
Their minds are polluted by his philosophy of trust no one but yourself and be your own god and master. Thats what
he did, and he figures it worked for him, and so hes advertising his trip.
When you feel rejected by people, and feel that they reject your message, you have to realize that its because of the Devil
that they dont like what you have to say. He doesnt like what you have to say, and so he seeks to discourage you by
manipulating and conditioning people into rejecting your output. Of course, hes also doing it in order to stop them from
getting saved. He wants to make sure theyll stay his slaves
The head stuffing of the Devil creates the illusion in peoples heads that theyre actually smart. Loads and loads of useless
information creating an illusion of a reality thats just a fake and a poor counterfeit of the Real Thing.
The problem is that as long as their knowledge gets them all they need for living and to be half-way content and
entertained, they wont develop any desire to learn whats really happening and going on. As long as theyre happy and
content with their fake version of reality, they wont start looking for the Real Thing.
Thats why trouble is good for people, and the smartest move the Devil could come up with was to postpone the trouble
and prolong this current era of affluence and general contentment for as long as possible, in order to corrupt peoples
hearts and minds thoroughly.
The Devil will use anything and anybody to drive a wedge between us. Our relationship is the most precious thing youve
got, and you should guard it as your most precious treasure.
Thats what the Enemy will try to attack and destroy, thats precisely his intention, and you should defend this treasure,
and not let him rob you of it.
You must never allow anything to come between us, because this is the very thing the Devil will have intended by his
actions, and if you allow him to separate us, then he has scored a point and won that particular battle or campaign.
He tempts you to conclude that I must be upset with you or carry a grudge, when nothing could be further from the truth,
because I see and know his tactics, and that he is actually the culprit, and whatever blame you may have in it, I have
already washed it away and paid the price for with My blood.
All the Devil can really do is create this deception, an illusion of a situation in which Im mad at you for something you
have done, when that isnt the way it works at all. Im not your average person that gets upset every time you stumble and
fall, especially when youve been caused to stumble by his schemes.
I know how he lies to you and builds his complicated, intricate schemes in order to deceive you, fool you and trick you,
and how he manipulates you into thinking that I am less than I really am, more like any common mortal that youve had to
deal with, and subject to their same rules of behavior.
Just like hes trying to fool the world into believing that I never existed as a real person, hes also trying to reduce Me to
close to nothing in the minds of believers. He may not be able to fool them and trick them into thinking that I never existed,
but he tries to strip and deprive Me of some of My divine qualities in your mind and reduce Me to something more human
and less divine, and thus much less capable of loving you unconditionally and eternally.
Once you know that thats what hes up to, you can be on guard against his attempts, and try to guard your knowledge of
the fact that Im not like that.
As with any and all lies of the Devil, the choice is always yours whether you will believe them, but theyll always amount to
the same old thing they have always been: worthless lies.
The true and valid information of My Word brings insight and wisdom. The false, erroneous and in most cases simply
untrue information that the Enemy has been pouring out through the System has the opposite effect: it dumbs people
down.
Its as if the thinking apparatus doesnt work properly anymore, because instead of being oiled and powered with My fuel
and input, it becomes cluttered and messed up with the poisonous counterfeit input of the Enemy, which he cheaply
dishes out in great quantities, and by artificially generating mass hype and hysteria about it, people are actually duped into
thinking that its good, and the real thing, when it is just a lousy counterfeit, thats actually poison for your motor, your
entire being.

139

Like any tyrant, the Devil wants dumb, obedient slaves, not thinkers he might have to defend his point against
He is working hard on making mindless zombies he can control, manipulate and steer via his devices of mass hypnotism.
In the Spirit World We wont discriminate because age, and nobody Here swallows any of the false dogma under which
most inhabitants of earth live right now that youth is supposedly superior to maturity
It took the Devil and his lot decades of constant brainwashing to get people to believe that, and since Our Realm is not
under his influence, We clearly see that as one of his schemes of indoctrination and manipulation.
You see where many of the evils of society come from, and how its their dogmas of disbelief that bring many of their
curses upon them, and you see the Enemy at work behind it, and thus are not ignorant of his devices and tactics, and
become a more skilled fighter against him than those who ignore and dont pay any attention to these things.
The whole world lies in darkness. All they have is a pretense of light, a false light, the artificial imitation of Lucifer, the
former and fallen light bearer, who all hes got left now is a semblance of the light he once bore, and with which he is now
deceiving mankind.
Hes not the true light, although he will pretend to be. Most people in this society accept him as the real thing, though,
because what hes got to offer seems to be so much more attractive than what I have to offer:
He offers prosperity and affluence and power in this world, in the here and now, while I call for abandon of these things.
His Gospel of pride sounds more attractive to most of them than My Gospel of Humility. The followers and disciples of the
Gospel of Humility will always be fewer in this world than those of the false gospel of pride
If the Enemys trying to get you to focus on the hole in the donut once again, and at your lack and wants, and at whats not
there, look away from it and look at Me, at all that is there, and all I give, and all I am yet able and more than willing to give.
The Enemy will try to use anything or anyone to drag you down and tear your focus away from Me. But I have supplied
means for you to bring your focus back on Me in spite of them.
His forces may be there, and theyre real and pounding on your door, trying to divert, distract and intimidate you, but I
represent a stronger force in your life that overcomes them.
Youve got to become more conscious of the fact that Im the One in charge, even if Im temporarily allowing the Devil and
his ilk to pretend to be.
One of the Devils tactics: to keep people too busy to look around at what ought to be changed.
I had intended for man to rule over creation, but by accepting the lies and deceptions of the Devil, which first promised
them divinity on behalf of their own actions and merits, namely the evil action of disobedience to Me, they were tricked into
an existence that is becoming less divine all the time.
In the long run, people always turn out to be a lot less divine in general than they may have chosen to believe they are,
because the way to true godliness is not the Devils road of self-aggrandizement and seeking worship and adoration from
others, but is only found on the exact opposite road of leading a life of a humble servant instead, seeking to give ones life
to others, instead of demanding from them to live their lives for them and in their service
The Enemy certainly landed a genius master stroke with his camouflage of disguising some of the greatest perpetrators of
evil in the world as Christians, and as those supposedly faring under My flag.
Its the ultimate atrocity, what the Bible used to call an abomination, which will ultimately be instrumental in bringing about
the Devils final abomination of Desolation.
The Enemy works a lot in the range and domain of feelings. Feelings he artificially creates based on atmospheres,
mindsets and dogmas he spews out into the ether via his propaganda and mind control machinery, which I dont want you
to subject yourself to
Resist the Devil and he will flee from you, Give no place to the Devil, whom resist steadfast in the faith.
He wont necessarily show up personally, but has his legions do his dirty work for him, and nowadays, not only via his
demons, but also via his demonic output in the media that are bound to effect you.
Thats why its so important that you subject yourself to My input, and thus My mindset and way of seeing things to a
greater extent than you take in whatever comes from his sources
One of the Devils favorite tricks is to tell you that things would be better if you had had a different lot than the one I
allowed for you to come to pass.
The Devil always tries to give things a twist that makes them more complicated. There is a connection between your actual
physical needs and their excessive version, which becomes a sin: you do need food, and I have promised to provide that
for you, but he will try to turn it into gluttony. And so on. And whatever it is, you cannot allow your need to take the place of
utmost priority in your life, as something that is above Me. Thats exactly what the Enemy will try to do.
Being perfectly loving also means to be totally opposed to hatred, and this includes a certain determination against
incorrigibly hateful forces, such as those of Satan, which will have to be abolished before that universal peace on earth
could ever take place.
Whats happening in this war is that the Enemy is successfully bribing a lot of people who are supposedly fighting on My
side, but for gain are watering down the message to one that denies the reality of the war thats raging, a message of false

140

peace, just like that of the false prophets of old.


By choice, I have made it possible for man to have himself adopted by another father, and play by that foster parents
rule, and unfortunately, most have chosen the Devil as their step father over My authority.
So, its not that I cast them out of My house, but by their loyalty to My enemy they have proven that they prefer to be called
his heirs, and thus, heirs of his kingdom they shall be, unless they choose to come back over to My camp any time.
And since people, by heritage of choice, are born into the jurisdiction of that usurped foster parenthood of the Enemy, it
takes a deliberate and conscious choice to return to the jurisdiction of My rule and Law of Love, before anyone can really
take full advantage again of the Fathers parenthood, and the benefits of being His child and heir
While Adam and Eves original choice may have bought you the Devil for your new parent, My blood buys you back into
the Fathers House, if thats what you want
The Devil could in many ways be called the god of the flesh, while I and the Father would rather advocate the way of the
Spirit.
After all, the Spirit is where all things physical come from, its the original Realm. Satan knows that in the Spirit Realm he
will never be no.1 and so he puts his cards and all hes got on this physical world
He cant make it big in his Home World, where I rule, on behalf of the Father, and so, like some of those ex-patriots who
dont have what it takes to become a star or big shot in their own country, but might stand a greater chance of becoming
famous somewhere else, hes putting on his big act and playing god on earth
Some consciously worship him as such, whereas the majority follows him and his ways unawares
If you look into the mysteries of the workings of the Enemy, dont expect to find too much, because most of what you will
find will be based less on actual fact than on his vivid imagination and that of his followers, because, after all, his main
incentive and goal is, at it has always been, to deceive, since there isnt really much else that he is truly capable of.
He is great at creating illusions that may come across as deceivingly real, so real, in fact, that those who fall for them will
not only die, but also kill for that fake reality. Probably the greatest shock for the vast majority of mankind, when theyll
stand before the Fathers Throne, will be the revelation that much of what they based their lives on and mistook for reality,
was nothing but a cleverly concocted deception by the Enemy of their souls.
Whenever I start a good clean thing on earth, it wont take long until the Devil will try to sneak in and pervert and defile it
somehow.
The Enemy is truly a treacherous enemy who can lie in wait and ambush for years and years before he strikes. In some
ways as far as youre concerned and the things he can do to you, its true: time is on his side, and its working in his
favor and playing the world including its billions of souls - closer and closer into his hands by the hour. And he also has
his sleepers; those who pretend to be fighting for My side but become activated at a certain signal to show their true
colors, and on whose side they really serve
Unfortunately, its true: among the greatest failures throughout history have been many of My children, many of those who
really ought to have known better. But because they were a threat to Satans kingdom, he was on their heels, and it was
them he was after, not those he already had in his bag
The best deceivers are those who are duped by the Devil themselves first, because they believe in their cause and their
pure motivations. Thats one important reason why My Word cautions My followers not to be ignorant of the Devils
devices, not to ignore them, but to take heed and learn to recognize and discern them when and where theyre at work.
It was the Devils aim to create the System in such a way that it would utterly spoil its captives, which he found to be the
fastest and easiest way to subvert them, more effective than downright slavery, and you simply havent been spared from
the effects of his plan, just as many others of My children and brides also havent.
The Devil is trying to get you to freak out about how bad and sinful you are. In reality, its only a shock because hes been
trying to hide the awful truth from you.
His favorite trick is to make people think theyre holier and better than they really are, and only when he realizes he doesnt
stand a chance with that tactic does he change over to the condemnation tactic. Of course, he also cleverly waits for the
best moment to change tactics, and knows when it will potentially hurt the most.
He will first try to hide your flaws from you for as long as possible and will then try to shock you with their revelation to the
extent where you will feel frustrated and discouraged or even condemned about it. Of course, hell also try to get you to
condemn others, but you see how that backfires. Whatever you try to accuse someone else of, you usually find youre just
as guilty of yourself in perhaps some slightly other aspect, but nevertheless.
So, its all not as bad as the Enemy may temporarily try or even be able to make it seem, because no matter how bad the
situation or problem, I have the solution, and I will settle and solve it in the long run, even if it may take some time and
endurance on your part.
The Devil has a greater and vaster and more universal grip over mankind than hes had at any other point in history, one
that pretty much extends to just about every human soul on the planet.
A lot of his power by which he enslaves people is by creating illusions, and awaking from these illusions is what I would
consider one significant step toward true freedom, and thus, the experience of having your illusions shattered, including
the illusions of false, temporary freedom you thought you had, are really another step toward that goal.
Some folks pretend to be so free by outward manifestations of their life-style or appearance, but are still terribly bound by

141

pride and a great deal of self-deception.


Dont you think the Devil wants to find out just as he did with Job just how real all your display of faith and conviction
really was? And dont you think that Ive had to give him the same permission to strike as I gave him with Job, in order for
all of us to find out where youre truly at?
I guess you can see for yourself that you werent anywhere near as good in shape spiritually as you thought you were, but
thats basically what Job found out, too, and that he had to rely on My grace only
The Devil keeps trying to feed you his input that this and that and the other is much more important than what you do, and
he keeps harping on how insignificant you are. But dont let him fool you!
You simply may not accept the Devils lens of a viewpoint of insignificance.
The Devil is trying to give everything his slant of insignificance, he tries to downplay everything and diminish it, just like
the kind of friends always do, that nobody needs. But in the light of the fact that everything and everyone is significant,
dont let him fool you, and dont let him reduce you to his game of nothingness.
If I made everything of nothing, he tries to reverse it and make nothing out of everything. He tries to reduce it all to nothing
in peoples minds. He gets them to look at creation the everything I made from nothing and say, Its all nothing! It all
came from nothing and came about by itself and bears absolutely no significance. So, beware of his and the worlds
mindset of insignificance.
Listen not to the hisses of the serpent on your left and on your right, even if some of his wicked forecasts and prophecies
were fulfilled. Of course, he can tell some of the future, he is smart and with the wisdom of the ages.
His people may have their gifts and powers, but they were never equal to Mine. Remember that you have the greater power
on your side, that of the Creator of the universe, and not that of the usurper who pretends to be something hes not. Woe
and shame on all those that rely on his power and wisdom. Blessed are only those who fully and wholeheartedly rely on
Mine.
There is always an old and a new way to do it, and usually Im the Promoter of the new, that which is truly new, and not the
pseudo innovations of the Enemy, which are usually just the same old selfish attitudes in a new dress.
Thats one of the Enemys secret weapons in making people feel miserable: he screws their expectations up to
unrealistically high levels which they cant really attain, so that they will permanently stay discontented because they
never really get what they think they want and should have, and perhaps even deserve.
This was Satans strategy ever since the beginning, to cause man to be discontent with what he had by his advertisement
campaigns of whatever he thought they were still missing out on, even if they were already living under the most perfect
conditions possible
So, dont let expulsion from the Garden become your fate again by being discontent with what you have and letting the
Devil trick you into thinking theres something else you need.
Hes a deadly enemy. But as deadly as he may be, all the more alive am I as your Friend and Ally.
I use the Enemy and his maneuvers in your life in order to break you, humble you and get you to a certain point.
I know it may seem weird to you, and as if Im sort of cooperating with the Enemy, or standing by as he causes you pain,
but you know that hes really only working for Me in the long run and bringing about My ultimate will, and that of the
Father
You also know that I will use anything in order to get My purpose accomplished, even the Devils attacks and workings in
your life sometimes.
Its the Devils business, as it has always been, to cast doubt on what I said, and to make it look like its not true, and, of
course, according to him, Im a liar, and hes Mr. Truthful. Well, I beg to differ, since I know him a bit better. He may be the
type of liar that is so good at it that he even believes his own lies, but it nevertheless doesnt change anything about the
quality and veracity of his statements, namely their status of mainly being false, untrue, and thus, lies, no matter how
strongly anyone believes them.
Because (the rich) dont have the Devil to fight against (since theyre basically, even if largely ignorantly, fighting on his
side), they also dont have to overcome some of the obstacles he puts in your way. They dont have to fight the demons
you fight, because they are basically the gods they follow and worship. They dont oppose them, but serve them, so the
demons make it easier for them in many cases.
They think that what they rely on is their own strength and power, but often it is also downright demonic power that helps
them to thrive in the ways of the world
What the Devil will do in addition to opposing you is try to tempt you to forsake My way and follow him instead and join the
rest of the world in the apparently easier way.
The Enemy likes to make a mess of things, but I in turn delight in restoring order from the mess he made.
he Devil shall not cause Me any loss, but only gain of superior quality in the end.
Just as you know worldly thieves would like to take off with some of the things you possess, so the Enemy would like to
snatch your most precious spiritual treasures.
The Devil and his people arent the only ones who have been working over generations, and for whom immediate success
isnt always relevant. Theyre only imitating Me and My ways, so you can bet that they copied this, too, from My style and

142

modus operandi, and for a good reason.


All the supposedly deep hidden secrets and mysteries that are to be gleaned from magic and the occult are really only
revelations because theyre adaptations of My truths and principles.
Thats why magic or anything the Enemy can muster up is nothing to be afraid of: Its only the power and wisdom they
have stolen and copied from Me in the first place.
I am capable of rising to the occasion. I can do the subject justice. Ive got what it takes. Enough of all this boasting you
can hear the Devil shout from some remote corner within your hearing range, but no matter how loudly he protests, he
cant change anything about it.
Hes nothing to be afraid of. - Talking about a loser.
Hes trying to get you to think that thats what you are, when hes really the epitome of one. He just refuses to believe it.
But it will become evident for all to see, and inevitably so.
And those over whom he now would like to cast a loser label will turn out to be the victors over him.
Thats why no matter how long and painful this seeming defeat may go on, you must remember that its really only
temporary, and every moment of it will only increase the joys and ecstasies you will experience upon your victory.
the Devil has pulled out his best guns, and in that matrix of his, hes god, and can come across as quite intimidating. But
how great is his power outside of his little plastic matrix? How great is it Outside, in My Real World, the One youre a part
and a citizen of?
The Devil has always been busy trying to get people focused on all theres more of to have in this world, that other folks
might have, and thats his big diversion tactic
All his good and loving, reasonable voices will stand on the shore beckoning you to come back and tie up in port
where its safe, where youd be doing what everybody else is doing, and how could you be so insane and irresponsible to
try something else, something so different and unorthodox And it will require some serious resolve and determination
to refuse to listen to them, not because youre stubborn or independent, but because you know whats right simply
because Ive told you so.
The Devils main tactic throughout the centuries and millennia has been to find ways and tricks to turn peoples focus
away from Me and to get them to focus on either the circumstances or on themselves as the only solution and means to
alter them, and even blame Me for the unpleasant circumstances, in order to create enmity between Me and them
As you can tell, he manages successfully.
So, all I can do is stand here and beckon and warn you: Dont fall for it!
As long as you have tribulations in this world, you know that the Devils on your heels, and thus he must be mad at you for
some reason, which shows that youre definitely on My side. If you never had any troubles, that should give you cause to
wonder whether youre still on My track.
Hell always try to condemn you for wanting to have a little bit of heaven on earth already; always try to give you a hard
time for rejecting his version of happiness and heaven, trying to prove to you that you made the wrong choice in
trusting Me for it
He hates you, he can do no other; but I love you, and can do no other, and will prove that My love is stronger than his
hatred.

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Discernment

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. John 7:24
Youre learning to discern My voice from the Enemys.
Its a constant choosing the good & eschewing the evil. Watch out whom youre allowing to speak through you.
One of the greatest lessons in life is to detect whether something is for real. You have to learn to detect the lie, the deceit.
The goal is to train your gift of discernment to the point where you can almost see it or touch it. Sometimes you can smell
it, that its there somethings wrong, but you cant put your finger on it until you touch it or have exposed it & it becomes
plainly visible.
Your aim is to expose the true, hidden motives. Youve got to strip off the cloaks & pretenses layer by layer & uncover
either the ugly truth underneath, or beautiful, naked sincerity & trueness of heart.
Learning to aim straight & even to discern & recognize your true enemy takes time & skill & experience, with all the tactics
of deceit & camouflage he applies.
It's hard to be fighting at 2 fronts, but that's another battle ground reality you're going to have to become trained in, since
the Endtime won't be any smoother in this aspect, but only rougher, having to fight outside enemies along with those who
will cleave to you with flatteries, as My Word says (Dan.11:33, 34). It takes discernment, a desirable gift in this day & age
you should seek and ask for!
One thing is putting people in boxes, labeling them & being unwilling to expect them to change. Another thing is, having
the faith that they're going to change & give them a piece of advice that has turned out to be helpful in your own life &
shown you where some of your own pitfalls were, as a tool and aid to help them make that change.
Sometimes you have to discern what message exactly it is that someone needs, and in order to do that, you have to spend
time with them, talking to them, hearing them out, finding out what they're receptive for and what not.
For 1 karat of diamond, you have to shift 1 ton of sand! It takes a while of digging and searching until you find a diamond
in all that sand, someone worthwhile who is hungry for the truth and will receive it. But you have to do that digging,
shifting & searching, otherwise you'll never find out!
You have to hear them out, check them out, talk to them & have a thorough look at them & not be too quick to discard
them!
I want you to mature & grow beyond any need or desire for a superficial show... to detect what is real and what is not. I
want you to have discernment, so that you won't fall too easily for anything that shines & glitters & promises a lot on the
surface, but will turn out to be just another fake & disappointment.
I want you to look at that which is not shiny on the surface, that which requires faith to believe in and to invest in, even that
which others might not have faith for in the natural.
It's a myriad of little, seemingly insignificant choices you're having to make each day, as to who you're going to listen to,
whom are you going to follow, My voice and the whispers of wisdom, or the Devil's roaring cheers, laughter and enticing
songs?
Keep your focus on the spiritual. Make the right choices! Distinguish between the Devil's lures & My whispers, and
between the way the world sees things and My way. Discern the spirits. Seek wisdom.
I want you to stick to what's clean and wholesome & not drag in dirt and pollution from the world into your life and into
your midst, this temple of your Home, which I want to set apart and consecrate for Me.
I want you to shut your doors to the temptations and perversions of the Enemy and discern hard between what is of Me
and what is of him, for you cannot drink of My cup and his at the same time!
Whenever your feelings tell you anything that contradicts My Word or what I have told you, then you can be sure about
their source! Who are you going to believe? Me or your feelings?
Stick to the discernment of My Spirit; always verify those intuitions or feelings with My Word & My counsel to you, and
when those 2 don't coincide, you know which one you'll have to believe & choose as truth.
The feelings I will give you will usually engender love, & strengthen your love for someone, instead of doubt. Even if by the
gift of discernment I show you something that's wrong with somebody, My Spirit will enable you to cast a veil over their
flaws & love them in spite of it. I will even enable you to show love to your enemies!
You have to discern between carnal thinking and My wisdom.
I'm teaching you many things about your fellow men through situations arising with folks you come across, teaching you
to discern their personality types, not in order for you to put them in boxes, but to show you the variety & wonders of

144

human nature, just as other people would study the variety of species in nature...
Listen more, hear more, learn more. Read between the lines; what is that which he's saying actually saying? What is that
saying about him? You can enhance your discernment skills through this. Listening & observing is pretty important in
learning discernment, although it is, of course, a gift, but one that takes skill like any other gift, to learn how to use it.
Not with the intention to criticize, but in order to help people; you need to find out what their problem is, and then you can
pray for their problem as I reveal it to you, and for a way you might help them to see it without offending or hurting them,
to make them see the truth tactfully and lovingly.
You've got to listen for the power! When you hear something, check it out for My power, and if it's got My power then you
can keep it, assimilate it and use it. But if it just tickles your ears but fails to go any deeper, then let it go.
Sometimes you can already see it on their faces that they're My sheep. You just know it. And everything they say, every
word that pops out of their mouths seems to only confirm it.
Who will be ready when the hour of temptation comes? Who will stand? Who is wise to take heed? Who will not fall for the
apparent, for that which the eyes see; but who sees deeper, below the surface, and can discern what's really going on?
Don't listen to and fall for the Devil's imaginary "cloud of witnesses," which often really only consists of his cloud of
deceivers, made up of billions of lies! Pierce right through it with the sword of the light of My Word, and discern what's
true and false! Come to Me for the truth.
Blessed is the man who has discernment to see as I see, who is not governed by the ways of the world to look at things.
(In dealing with people who are My sheep), always use your gift of discernment for the purpose of love, for the purpose
of helping them to see more clearly or get further along their road, to expand and open up their and your horizon, never to
limit.
It's supposed to be a connection of hearts, souls & spirits, not a separation! It's not about categorizing, which is creating
lines between people, but about connecting, bringing together, not separating and dividing.
It takes real humility to admit to oneself (and others), "Hey, I thought I was on the right track about that one, but I think it's
turning out I wasn't." The right motivation isn't always necessarily the right spirit. And that's what they need to learn and
discern.
It takes a willingness to learn more than what you already know, a willingness to tell the Devil, when he attacks through
pride, "I know you're telling me right know I already know everything there is to know, but I'd rather make double-sure &
check in with the Lord."
You need to expose these workings of the Enemy on the subconscious level and become aware of them. Something may
feel so right, like "the way that seemeth right unto a man," and at other times they can seem so wrong, but only I can tell
you exactly what is right or wrong.
What's wrong is what always has been wrong, since the beginning of time: Satan has deceived mankind and brought sin
into the world and put you under the curse, so, it's a whole lot tougher to really find out what's the truth, thanks to the
knowledge of good AND evil. From then on you've had to learn to discern the truth from the lies, the good from evil, and
the art is especially recognizing the evil within yourself. It's plenty easy to recognize it in others...
Feelings can be downright deceptive.
Feeling "inspired" is not really a safe & foolproof guarantee for anything, whether the thing you feel inspired about is
really inspired by Me.
You've got to really make sure always that it's My inspiration and anointing, not an inroad or temptation of the flesh to
make itself feel grander and greater than is due.
You've got to discern whether these feelings are just feeding your pride & self-reliance or whether they help you to walk in
My footsteps and that humble road of reliance & dependence on Me.
Learning to determine and distinguish between what is really important is one of the major lessons in life, and many
people are failing at it pitifully.
Just like physical sicknesses have many different strands and variations, so do spiritual sicknesses. The difference is that
people know a lot more about the physical ones than the spiritual ones. There are very few spiritual "doctors" around, who
can successfully analyze what's wrong with someone's spirit.
That's what the gift of discernment is for, to feel your spiritual pulse, give you a spiritual x-ray and a general check-up, &
find out "what you've got."
Some ills aren't necessarily bad & permanent diseases, some are just brief attacks, like headaches that come & go, or a
backache or tummy-ache. Others come frequently & give you semi-permanent trouble, but they're not necessarily lethal to
your spiritual health.
If you desire truth in the inward parts, that's what you're going to keep getting for a while: more bad surprises and not-sopleasant revelations about your innermost self, about areas in your life in which you're not quite being the saint you wish
or even thought you were.
It does take some skill to differentiate between what is My input and what comes from your old self or the Enemy, and

145

some folks underestimate that danger, and are a little too confident in their own opinions, but then there are folks who tend
to go the opposite way and doubt themselves too much. In either case, you're not truly living from the center. In the first,
because you allow some carnal input or input from the Enemy to pose as Mine; in the second, because you deny My
presence in you.
The Source of living words of wisdom right within you is the Comforter, "Who will bring all things to your remembrance,"
My Spirit in you.
It's tough when people only listen to their minds, their carnal reasoning, and are so convinced that they couldn't possibly
err or be mistaken, that they don't take the time to go into the depths of consulting Me. But "living out of your true center"
means not to be misled by those superficial voices from the fringes - your carnal mind and other voices, but to be led by
My Voice.
My sheep hear My voice, and they detect the difference between eternal and temporal. They sense the difference between
tales and the real thing, the eternal life I give.
You need to recognize the problem; not just the effect it's having on you, but somehow get down to the root of it.
It's all about dealing with and confronting your weaknesses, and those of people who are close to you and concern you,
instead of avoiding the subject.
"Take heed how you hear." You must discern the voices that say which way to go, and you have to play it by ear and really
listen where I lead you.
Learning discernment teaches you to deal with others, teaches you about them and to love, accept and embrace the other.
The study of the human spirit, as in psychology, does not only serve to analyze and fill people's heads with knowledge, but
also for folks to begin to understand themselves, and to learn to tackle their problems on the basis of that understanding.
Of course, the easiest way would be to just pray for deliverance from certain problems, but, as you're finding out, it doesn't
always work that way. Sometimes it takes more than a prayer of deliverance over some of your besetting sins. It takes the
honesty and courage to be willing to face them in the first place, letting Me expose and show them to you, shine My light of
truth into those dark corners of your heart, and then allowing Me to clean up there.
Simply seeing it, recognizing it and acknowledging it, admitting to it, takes humility, and that's already half the victory in
itself. The humility to admit to oneself, "Why, this is ridiculous, the way I'm behaving! - Lord, give me the grace to snap out
of this!"
Of course, for some people, who are extremely stuck on themselves in this aspect, it can be difficult, because all they see
is their own hurt. Their pride blinds them to the truth and often even stops them from being willing to see it.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. To the carnal mind it looks the
opposite of the way I see it. The way that seems right on the surface is the sanctimonious way, that's why you've got to
look deeper, below the surface, and see what I've got to say about it, and how I see things. That's what My truth does, and
bathing yourself in the truth of My Words: it helps you to see things My way, and not the way your carnal mind would
interpret things. It tells you, "things are not what they seem."
You've got to look deeply, especially when it comes to people, and you cannot judge by exterior things, just as you
wouldn't want them to judge you for your exterior. It's the spirit that counts, and that you can only see once you look
beyond the exterior, and you've got to make that effort.
You must learn how to deal with the Accuser of the Saints and discern his twisted way of seeing and portraying things.
In exercising yourself in the usage of discernment you must not neglect the discerning of your own spirit, which is just as
prone to attacks from the Enemy as anyone else's.
It takes real discernment to recognize the true treasures, those you can rely on, do or die.
I've had to let you experience the difference between walking the path of light, and thinking you're walking in it, all the
while following the voices and phantoms the Enemy camouflages as Mine.
He has done so since the beginning of time, and it's only life's experiences which truly teach you to know the difference.
Since history is all about recognizing the difference between good and evil, it's obvious that not everybody can tell the
difference from the start, otherwise, there would be no need for a lesson.
What may look innocent and okay to some, may turn out in the end not to have been so innocent at all: a little curiosity by
the first woman causing the Fall of all of mankind, the seemingly innocent taste of a fruit that seemed to promise
knowledge... It's really not always that obvious, what is really good and what is bad, unless you have come to experience
the fruits of it. Afterwards you can tell the difference, and you say, "What have I done?"
What I want is that you develop some conviction against evil! I want you to recognize it for what it is, not accept it as an
"innocent" little "part of it all." It's true, it is a part of it all, but it's the part I want you to get rid of. Life is a pathway of
choosing what things are there to keep, and what things are there to get rid of.
Discernment shouldnt ever keep you from looking at the good in people. Real mature discernment means making the
effort to look for the good in people, in spite of the bad you may already see

146

People often fail to recognize the enemy within.


Most folks fail to realize that in order to be able to change the world effectively for the better, one needs to correct whats
wrong on the inside first, or at least recognize the obstacles that are right there at ones own doorstep, and then not be
overwhelmed by them, but tackle them with My help.
It takes a while to discern between what are genuinely your natural inclinations, and that which becomes the exaggerated,
sinful version of a natural desire that the Enemy tries to promote in order to make you feel guilty about it afterwards, just
as it takes time, experience, and skill to learn to discern between what is truth and lies in the world
It takes time to learn to expose the workings of the Devil in your life, and the way he operates, but once you do, things
become clearer, and it becomes more obvious to you what is okay and what isnt. And in the meantime, making mistakes is
whats going to help you find out all the quicker.
The truly valuable people are as rare as jewels, diamonds or gold nuggets among a ton of coal or earth or rubble Theyre
hard to find, and they take work to find. Its hard work to first of all recognize them, clean them, and then, keep them,
because the Enemy is going to try all he can to snatch them away from you.
Only time will tell their true worth, and whether theyre real and true diamonds or gems
One of the primary purposes for discernment is to distinguish what kind of person might be good for you to take along
and what kind youd be better off without, and experience teaches you that the right kind are rare.
It pays to look and think twice before you decide what youre going to allow your mind to fall for. Will you fall for that which
merely seems right and safe and secure at first glance, or will you look deeper, beyond the appearances on the surface?
Its not so much a question of intelligence or IQ, as it is of healthy, God-given discernment of what is good or bad, right or
wrong.
It takes a sharp, close and intricate analysis of your people, to figure out and determine what it is they really need, and one
cannot be scared of the truth and some not-so-pretty details.
Its easy to spot the tyrant in others, but an entirely different challenge discovering him in yourself.
How much love do you have to see with that extra spiritual eye that sees the good in others and possibilities others cant
see, instead of only their faults? It doesnt say that love has an extra spiritual eye that sees their faults. Thats usually the
Devils eye of self-righteousness, rather than even God-given discernment. If you want something to discern and analyze,
then it should be your own behavior, your own part of the blame and your share of the responsibility in this situation and
equation, and make a serious effort to find ways of improving your own act.
Relying on your own mind and wisdom in your discerning people can be dangerous, because you may think you have
somebody all figured out, but because you didnt have any true and supernatural insight from Me about them, they can
deceive and fool you and lead you on, and wind up having cheated you out of your precious time, or worse, having used or
even betrayed you.
There are folks who know exactly what to say and how to behave in order to impress others and come across as attractive
and make people like them. They know exactly what kind of music you want to hear.
Somebody who may have looked promising, and as if they had their act together, can turn out to be a total mess, and can
make you wish you hadnt invested that much time in them, after all.
Learning to interpret the vibes people give off properly is a challenge in life. Finding out what it really is that makes people
tic, and not just falling for your own first best interpretation and wild guess what their intentions and motivations may be
In order to really find out what it is that people need and how they really need you to act or react toward them, you have to
stay in tune with Me.
You can learn to define, determine and judge by true, divine and everlasting standards, as opposed to the faulty and flawed
standards of man that are soon to be replaced permanently, even when it comes to such basic things as determining what
is good or bad.
If you cease from judging yourself, or judging by criteria based on your own personal inclinations, intuitions or
understanding, and instead seek to view things from My angle, you can learn to truly apply that divine standard that will
render the true picture of things.
Its as if you look through a spectrum that will render a clear and true illustration of things, instead of the tainted and poor
version your own outdated software might render.
You can become an apprentice to the One True Judge, instead of being just one more wannabe judge whose own criteria
may be in desperate need of revision Like that of so many worldly judges, or even the average citizen who judges
everything and just about anyone by their own individual point of view based on the information they happen to accept as
valid, which is basically, whatever suits them best.
Its a choice not for the most comfortable option, but rather, for the only true and genuine one, no matter what discomforts
and sacrifices it may bring, that determines ones ability to truly judge and discern between good and evil. Basically, it
means allowing Me to judge the matter, and not come to conclusions prematurely.
That requires patience and faith. Sometimes youve just got to leave it there until I reveal to you My thoughts and input
about it. But the more practice you get at obtaining My input, the more skilled youll become at it. Just make sure you
settle for nothing less than Mine, and that you dont mingle too much of your own personal view and opinion with your
judgment, which may taint the picture and diminish the quality of your gift of discernment.

147

As long as your quest is for the truth and nothing but the truth instead of conclusions made in a rush, youre safe. As
long as you remember that it is I Who know, not you, you can fairly safely assume that youll be getting the right picture
and that your judgment will be fair.
I want you to see the real value in and of things.
To appreciate something means you know its worth.
The standard of love is the only true and proper standard.
Weigh all you do and are going to do by that standard of love, and learn to judge things by the criteria of love. See things
through the eyes of love, and make it your yard stick by which you measure everything, even the cost and price and value
of your daily endeavors.
Its a matter of choice between life more abundant, the full life I promise, and the empty life that people lead when they
stuff it with the fake goods the Enemy or the world has to offer. Its a matter of discerning and determining between the
true and false values.

What Jesus Has to Say at the Onset of the 21st Century about
Discipleship

Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Matthew 4:19
Prove that you are My disciple by showing love.
Come, My children, & forsake fleeting pleasures, having food & raiment, let us therewith be content, learning to be
content in whatsoever state, and find out about the thrills of the REAL winners & champions of the universe. The kind of
happiness that money just cant buy, the bliss of living for love. Find out how much more blessed it is to give than to
receive, how much more fun it can be to be consumed instead of consuming, to be used by Me, instead of seeking to use
others to give you self-confirmation & pats on the back. Why not strive for a higher goal & wait for a pat on your back from
Me: Well, done, thou good & faithful servant: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord? And oh, what a joy that shall be! The joy
will be the greater, the more you are willing to forego the cheap, fleeting & fake joys of this world. Besides, you will already
be able to enjoy glimpses of that heavenly bliss in this life.
Some people are just looking for an excuse to do what they would really like to do: Quit. Throw in the towel & say Uncle
to the Devil. Get me back into the matrix! I dont want any more of this hard life of faith...
Count the cost, lest you find out in the middle of the road that the price is higher than what you are willing and able to pay,
and you might have to turn around again. Determine whether youre really willing to pay the maximum price of
surrendering all
Many people who said they were going to follow & serve Me went back ashamed, because the price turned out to be higher
than what they had expected.
The first step to becoming My disciple is forsaking all. Matthew 19:29 still applies & works today! I can only give you a
hundred-fold of all you leave & forsake for Me if you actually do so. Forsaking all is never done just once & for all; its a
process that goes on.
Discipleship is more than just making a living for yourselves! It is living for others & bringing Me to them, salvation and all
that youve found in Me.
A missionary is a man or woman who is utterly dedicated and yielded to Me, not holding anything back. Nothing else
matters to them but to give, to pass on that which they have received from Me. They are compelled, driven by that force,
that love unspeakable, peace that passeth the understanding of your mind, My supernatural Spirit. The love of Christ
constraineth them.
A missionary is a picture of utter trust in Me vs. the flesh. They know they are doing My work, and that Im a fair Boss and
Husband, and will never fail to fulfill My part of the deal. They can count on My supply and My faithfulness to reward the
faithful.
A missionary is a picture of true wisdom, for he has seen through the vanity and emptiness of this World, that its got
nothing to give that could ever truly satisfy, and thus they rush forward to fill that aching need in their fellowman for that
only real and lasting treasure that truly satisfies: My Love & Salvation.
A missionary is humble, yet proud. Proud to be working for Me, the King of kings & Lord of lords, doing even the humblest
& lowest & most menial task, just to follow My example in gratitude, and to fill the need.
A missionary does that which no one else would do, what nobody else can do or is willing to do, and thus they become
superhuman. My missionaries are My supermen.
Just like I was raised from the humiliating death on the cross and ascended into the sky in glory and am set at the right
hand of My Fathers throne, so shall My humble missionaries be highly exalted above all men.
They are the rulers of My future. For who else will be worthy? Who else will have the love necessary but those who have
already given their lives in love?
All those who think they are something shall stand in shame in that day when I will exalt those carriers of My Words.
What is a missionary? Theyre all Ive got.
If youre a disciple, a fully grown, mature doer of the Word, then show Me your faith by your works!
Show Me that you are willing and able to sacrifice! Show me that you are willing and able to act on what Im showing you
to do, even if those dearest to you dont understand and think youre making a mistake. Show Me whose follower you are!
If you want to be My disciple, youre going to have to spend time with Me.

149

Im calling My chosen ones to Me, constantly, & they have to follow & obey that call, either leaving the rest behind or
bringing them along, according to their choices, but their motives must also be right. Not hitched on some personal
dream they might be having, but to find & follow the radical truth & die for it daily, and whenever it is required. Its a
real life & death battle, not a vacation.
One great requirement of any of My true followers is the willingness to confront themselves, keep book with their own
souls &, if necessary, come to the conclusion, Ive been wrong all along, I must start from scratch! Toss everything
over & start clean slated: Forget your old ideas & attitudes...
If you can see the shape youre in with My eyes, thatll be a good place to start on your way up again.
Discipleship means laying down your life for each other without ever really considering it a sacrifice. It means that you will
prefer doing something WITH somebody else, simply because I have said in My Word that it is better for you to do so.
A revolution isnt some kind of spare time hobby you can pursue when all the other things have been taken care of.
Most people wont think favorably of you, if you go & do exactly what I want!
The only thing that brings life is to live the life: being a furious voice for the truth out there everyday, where it counts, &
being a sample of the real thing by laying down your life for the sheep down there every day of your life, not just talking
about it as if it would be some nice thing to do
What will you do with your life? Who are you going to be? Just another half-hearted, lukewarm compromiser, afraid of
what people might think of him, or a true disciple who is not too selfish, not too concerned about his own wee little life to
lay it down for others in the firm belief that Im not a liar, but that My Word is true: there ARE sheep out there right now who
are starving for My love, and I will hold you accountable for each & every one of them that was there in your power to
reach & find, but you would not because you were too selfish, too occupied with your own little affairs & too concerned
what people might think about you.
Will you be a loser, who was too afraid to look like a loser in the Systems eyes & thus compromised & danced according
to their fiddle? Another sheep, howling with the wolves? Or will you be a winner, one of the few rare true conquerors who,
by being willing to appear as the seeming losers, overcame this World & will shine like the stars forever & ever?
If its this life you put your money on, go on. I will not condemn you. The sheep you have failed & will yet fail to find will
condemn you some day. Why didnt you obey your Lord & why did you never go out to find us?
The sacrificial option, the option of laying down your life for Me, of taking up your cross, the option of truly denying
yourself & your own desires, that's the only option that truly results in life.
When I'm putting before you an option to do the absolutely radical, contrary-to-all-your-rational-reasoning thing, how
radical are you? How sold out for Me are you? How willing to really say "Yes!" to Me without reservations?
Usually, time & history have proven that the harder way was the more fruitful way. What if I had not chosen to take My
Father's cup & not gone the hard way? My Father could not even have sent the Comforter, because it was expedient for My
flesh to go away, so that My Spirit could come. Even so, it is expedient for you that your flesh should be crucified &
mortified, so that the Spirit might come to life in you.
The hour has come that I'm asking you to take up your cross. Are you ready for it? Have you been wasting your time &
letting your spiritual muscles become all lax & weak, or have you been preparing, so that when I would call you, you would
be ready?
Nobody ever said that dying daily would be fun or easy.
If you've been freed from the Matrix, "unplugged", saved, your life is a constant war against the agents of the Devil, & often
you don't feel like fighting at all, & you feel like, "Plug me back in! I don't want to fight! Give me some kind of lie or halftruth, so that I can live in peace again, so that I don't have to fight this ugly war anymore!"
That's why some of the most deluded people in the World are Christians, people who have been saved from their sins, but
who don't really care to find out exactly what that means. They think, "Oh, sure, it's easy: just basically try to be a 'good
person', don't do anything bad..." It's sort of like the way I tested the rich young ruler, who asked Me what he should do to
go to heaven, & I told him the basic commandments, "Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal," etc., and of course, he
proudly stated that he had kept all those. So now came the real clinch: "Well, there is one more thing you can do, if you
really want your treasure to be in Heaven, not on Earth: go, sell all that you have & give it to the poor & come, follow Me!"
But that was a bit too much too ask.
Losing your life in order to find it & denying oneself is the exact opposite of what the World preaches. It also means going
against that what you want, and that's the real crux of the matter with some. As long as I allow them to keep their little idol,
it's okay to be a Christian. And as long as they hold on to it, the Devil won't even attack them too much, because he knows,
they're still partly his. "Huddersfield belongs to You AND me", he can say about them, and he knows they won't be nearly
as effective as if they would really forsake all.
It's a choice between the ordinary - the System way, doing it like everybody else - and the extraordinary: My way. A choice
between the mountain or the valley. Being a mountain man means to be willing to make a break with the System's ways of
conformity.
It's as if every morning when you wake up, the Devil has woven a new web around you, consisting of habits, selfish
attitudes & chains of conformity, and you must decide whether you're going to live with them or not.
There's nothing like life on the mountain! Valley life will never ever truly be "it" for you, it'll always only be the same old
"cage". Choose freedom, choose the mountain! Leave the System valley cage of conformity to everybody else's way
behind.

150

If you want Me to use you, you're going to have to resist the temptations of the flesh to settle for the easy & comfortable
way! Being a soldier & fighter for Me is definitely not the comfortable way. Nor is the comfortable way in any way being a
soldier & fighter for Me.
Every soldier also needs some time of relaxation & recuperation, but I'm talking about when your whole life just seems to
revolve around finding an easier way to do it, following the path of the least resistance constantly, avoiding confrontation,
settling for the less challenging compromise. If that's the pattern of your life, then you can tell that your life hasn't really
been guided by Me. It's just not My way to seek the easy way out, to look for the comfortable way, because that is the way
that seeks to avoid the cross, the hardships & any sacrifice.
Just because it's there, doesn't mean you have to use it or do it or that it's of Me.
Making things more comfortable for you is not My will! To hell with the comfortable way! The comfortable way is landing an
awful lot of people quite uncomfortably in hell, when you could have saved them from it! A lot of people are going through
an uncomfortable hell-on-Earth type of life, while you are busy being comfortable! The most uncomfortable place for a
Christian is a comfortable place. So, beware of the comfortable place!
It's easy to follow God & be a disciple when you "know" that everything's going to go to pot. But that same kind of
conviction is pretty hard to maintain when the World around you just keeps going & going without the judgment ever
happening, & you wonder whether you've been fooled.
"The judgments aren't coming, anyway, so why should I keep leading this difficult life of sacrifice, when everybody else
around is having so much fun? I wanna have some fun, too."
But real conviction stands its ground. You know right is still right, and wrong is still wrong. You know that you're going to
be rewarded abundantly for the right you do, and for avoiding the wrong.
If you do things for Me and as unto Me, you'll reap eternal benefits and more permanent blessings than paper money. I'll
reward your faithfulness in the little things by being faithful to you, even and especially during the tough times.
I called My disciples to become fishers of men. Fishing is a skill. You can't just stand there in the middle of the brook or
river or lake or sea & wait for the fish to jump into your net. It takes a little skill to trick them into the net, a certain way to
swing the fishing rod, or to cast your net in the right way, without scaring the fish away.
My path is a rough and rugged mountain path, and those who choose it must be strong in spirit, not fat and pampered, and
they must be ready for sacrifice.
It activates My power in your life when you decide to obey Me and take up your cross, deny yourself and lay down your life
for Me!
Don't withhold from them the golden opportunity, the chance of a life-time to be employed by the best Employer in the
world, to find the best cause anyone could ever live & fight for!
It requires faith to go out there & die daily for Me, and not many have got what it takes. That's why I'm using whoever I can
who is simply willing to do the job, even if they're far from perfect.
The ones I have chosen to do the most difficult job in the world aren't those who think themselves perfect.
Becoming more open for My new, unknown elements, the factor that is so strange to your egos & habits is what it truly
means to be revolutionary!
To be truly revolutionary is to whole-heartedly jump into a new thing, a direction I'm leading you, even if it doesn't make
any sense to you or is contrary to everything you have believed or known thus far!
I love it when you just follow Me along blindly, not seeing or knowing where I lead you, but you just trust Me, that I'll lead
you aright!
Don't just idly seek to enjoy the situation as much as possible, trying to squeeze the most fun or ease out of it, but work at
it! Put something into it!
You determine what kind of a revolutionary & obedient disciple you're going to be, & there's nothing & nobody you can
blame that's supposedly stopping or hindering you! It just takes work, that's all.
Once you realize that you're actually working for the King of the universe, the highest-ranking Employer you could
possibly ever have, then you'll actually see it can be quite adventurous & exciting.
Take the responsibility that everything - what you're going to become in the future, your destiny and all that goes with it depends on you, your choices & actions right now, today, and the amount of elbow grease & initiative that you're willing to
invest in it!
To become a real revolutionary, start right now, today, by forsaking all, laying down your life, denying yourself & taking up
your cross in every little situation & at every opportunity that you come across!
I'm guiding you step by step. My modus operandi for My army is not one where every step or every path ahead is
clearly laid out in advance, it's one of trusting and following Me blindly, according to last minute instructions and doors,
which I open and close just before it is time to move, without leaving your carnal minds much room to figure it all out by
yourselves!

151

Remember what I put up with from sinners. False accusations, fingers pointed at you and people hating you & despising
you in a self-righteous frenzy is something you must be prepared for if you follow in My footsteps.
The Devil can truly make them feel oh so right about accusing you. You must be willing to bear this if you follow Me and
will be My disciple, that sooner or later they will shout "crucify him," because you're not one of them.
You will always be one of those outsiders, those strangers & intruders, like Me, that they will resist, because men love
darkness rather than light.
Truly living by faith means, you don't care whether you're going to die or live another day, all you know is, you want to
follow Me blindly wherever I lead.
Following Me requires flexibility & openness to change. Following Me is a constant revolution. I am Revolution. Stay
flexible and revolutionary!
Step into My footsteps. I've had lots of people against Me, in fact, nearly an entire race, plus the majority of the
surrounding peoples, and that in spite of all the good I did. Yet it was My Father's love for Me that saw Me through. And
even so it will be My love for you that will see you through & help you to focus on the few who will make it worth it all!
Keep the pioneer spirit, the missionary spirit, the "stranger in this world" spirit, the "gypsies of the Lord" spirit, the "we've
just got to keep moving" spirit! Don't allow yourself to settle down!
Listen deeply to the Spirit. The Spirit has got new things to say today, the wind bloweth where it listeth, and it pays to find
out where, and which tune She's singing today.
Maybe we've been getting away with singing yesterday's tune today, but you won't be able to get away with it tomorrow.
Look for opportunities, ways & possibilities in which you could be of help in order to further My cause.
It's a matter of not always being so concerned about the things I do for you, but developing an unselfish mindset of
seeking what you could do for Me each day; to ask Me every morning, "What can I do for you?"
You can only be a prophet who calls out others to "come out from among them," if you have been "called out" yourself,
first, and have obeyed the call, and have exited from the whorish System. It's like what I told My followers about the
Pharisees: what they tell you, this do, but don't do as they do, for they may say it, but they do it not!
You can't really follow them, because there is nowhere to follow.
Which body do you want to follow: the dying corpse of the old pharisaical church, or the vibrant, new & young body of My
called-out ones?
Memorization is one of the easiest & first ways to be a "doer" of the Word. It's part of discipleship. "The law of his God is in
his heart; none of his steps shall slide." It's one of the best safeguards you've got, and a needed sample for others to see
that you're making an effort to uphold the standard.
If you want to follow in My footsteps, I'm expecting you to reach the level of maturity and ability to forgive and love
unconditionally. You love them in spite of their rejection of you, knowing by faith that they will change eventually, even as
some of My most ardent persecutors turned out to be some of My most loyal and ardent promoters in the end.
Let them "kill" you, "crucify" you and reject you and love them anyway, and thus become a savior of the world! Join Me,
and take up My cross upon you!
Bring some light into the darkness. Let your light so shine before men! - That they may see your good works... They may
not always consider them "good," but what counts is what I call good, and if I call it good, then it IS.
They glorify the Father by beholding your good works. Just by receiving what you're doing. By accepting it, by receiving it,
by liking what they see, because they're absorbing His light, like a tree, and it is inevitably bound to bring forth fruit, some
new leaf or branch, and it will bring forth new life. If you are messengers of God's light and life, then it will always bring
forth some kind of new life when you let your light shine before men!
If you faithfully put hours into reaching folks with My message, you'll see your "business" picking up and flourishing,
eventually.
My goal for you is not for you to live a comfortable life until the day you peacefully die of old age. My idea of your purpose
in life is not a comfortable vacation. It's meant to be more adventurous than that, daring them to wake up, challenging
them.
Be a living alarm clock in their lives that will rattle them out of their sleep and their stupor.
Once you grow into a fully mature disciple, faithfully absorbing and imparting My Word to others, you actually become the
living Word in the flesh to the World as I have been.
"Denying yourself and taking up your cross" is the very opposite of man's modern teachings and other philosophies of
"finding yourself," fulfilling yourself" and saving yourself. Denying yourself means to not accept the Enemy's lies, which
he tells the proud and self-sufficient that any of you can save yourselves by your good works. It also means to forsake
your own plans about making a great name for yourself in this life. It means putting your cards and your money on the
Spirit, and the World to come, not the flesh and this present world. It means that you believe what I said: "It is the Spirit

152

that quickens (gives life), the flesh profits nothing," that you have chosen the way of Abel, not of Cain, the way of the
"Lord-letters" not of the workers-in-the-flesh...
I have always wanted My disciples not to focus on their needs, their lacks, their worldly affairs, but on the harvest: My
need for those lost sheep out there who still need to be won, workers that might still be found, if you focus on seeking
them out.
The whole idea of faith and serving Me is that you don't have to serve your circumstances and be subject to them, but to
apply your faith in My power to make the most out of them, make something better out of them, to use that empty ground
and fill it with My seeds, to till and plough it, so that from that which was once empty ground, unpromising and seemingly
barren, you bring forth fruit unto Me.
Some can live with the lie and would be satisfied with a cheap counterfeit. That's good enough for them. But there are
those who just can't stand to live like that, and those are My crown-hunters. They're not going to chase only after mere
earthly rewards, but they're going to live this life I've given them in pursuit of that higher reward, that everlasting one. They
put their stakes up higher than the rest of them, they shoot for everlasting fame & glory, not in this world, but in the one to
come.
I never asked anyone to worship Me, I asked them to follow Me. To worship someone is easy. It's adoring them from afar.
But to follow them and do as they do, thats a real proof of love, that's worship in spirit and in truth (Jn.4:24).
My way was love, truth and humility. Adapt to My style instead of theirs.
It's tough to go My way, because it means being willing to take the pain, instead of dishing it out. It means to be ready to
receive the ridicule, ready to be laughed at, instead of being the one who ridicules and laughs at others. It means taking up
the cross yourself, instead of nailing others to crosses with your words.
Either you follow in My footsteps as a pilgrim and stranger in this world, or you might as well forget about the whole thing
and stop pretending you're something you're not. Being proud of your country and at the same time professing to be a
Christian is hypocrisy, because it's like claiming to be fighting for one side while advertising the Enemy at the same time.
It's treason.
You can't be a true and sincere Christian and a flag-waving nationalist of any of the wicked nations of this world at the
same time! You're either advertising this world, or Me, the Alternative to this world, you can't do both. You can't advertise
God and Mammon. You can't serve 2 masters.
The process of sanctification is a process of separation. I take you apart from the rest, and consecrate you unto Me. You
are Mine. Receive it as an act of My love in which I am drawing you closer to My bosom and into My arms. I cannot do so,
unless I take you apart from the world, for we oppose each other.
Life as a disciple of Mine is all about witnessing; about winning others! Your own survival is none of your concern, that's
Mine, providing you do the job I am calling and sending you to!
Your calling is to turn around and go the completely other way! People will only follow your call and challenge for them to
turn around, if you have turned around yourself, and are going the opposite way of the main stream!
You should ask yourself periodically where you stand, how sincere and how serious you are about your service for Me,
what it really is you want, and whether you're truly giving your all for Me. Is there more you could give? Are you seeking
with all your heart to make some progress today?
How much more time do you spend on some other activity, in comparison to the time you truly spend with Me or for Me?
Will you be found wanting? Could there have been more that you could have done, when you assess all that you did, at the
end of your day, or at the end of the year, or at the end of your life?
What are your goals? What is it you really want? What is it you'd like to accomplish and achieve, and is that which you
would like to achieve truly something you would want to achieve for Me? Are you sure it's not just something your own
ambition drives you to do, but is it truly the humble thing, and the thing I ask of you?
These are honest questions that require sincere answers. You've got to let Me check your heart, if you really want Me to
accomplish through you the utmost possible.
Serving Me happens to be one thing you cannot manage to do successfully in your own interest! It's got to happen
because your desire is to make someone else happy, starting with Me.
Your life can take on a whole new meaning and outlook, your days can become much brighter, if you learn to seek not only
what I can do for you, but what you can do for Me, and make that your primary incentive!
May you discover the joy of what it means to really be able to say with your whole heart, "All I want to do is serve Him!"
When I call you to follow Me and give your all, then you cannot allow anything or anybody to hold you back; no earthly ties
of flesh and blood, nor emotional ones. For My true soldiers and called out ones, the Cause will always be above any
earthly obligations, customs, relations or ties.
Those who are truly called never settle for less than total freedom from those earthly bonds.

My true disciples are going to be able to thrive on anything, no matter how rough the circumstances, they will keep going,
and will keep producing the life-giving medicine for the souls of the world, as long as they regularly get some of My
refreshing waters! All My true disciples need is Me and My refreshing waters. I will do and provide all the rest for them.
To serve Me means to serve Me in battle against evil.
I know the struggle you're facing against all the distractions hammering at the door of your life!
The danger of wanting to promote oneself instead of Me and My humble and humiliating message, which involves dying
daily, is always there, and part of the battle consists of just resisting that temptation.
You can't be My chosen people and be popular at the same time.
To be a follower, a disciple of Mine, means going in the opposite direction of where the world is going and the flesh would
lead you. Instead of letting them drag you along with their current, you go the opposite way.
Stop being dragged about by the old school of the System and the flesh, and whatever they tell you to do in order to make
progress. Stop all that and come to Me! Turn around and start walking a new way, in a new direction. Don't be afraid of
going the opposite direction of the one everybody else is heading.
It may look like a humbler, less promising way, a darker, less shiny, less glorious way, and folks may be shaking their
heads at you and wonder, "Why's he taking that shabby road?" But in the end you and they will see which of the two paths
really will have led to what I'd call true success.
The path I have taken wasn't a glorious road, and one that not many initially would have had the courage to follow. It was a
road that took My followers far away from their homes and all that was familiar and trusted... Away and off into the
horizon... into the new, the unknown... with Me.
I didn't have to persuade anyone to follow Me or talk them into it. I just said, "Follow Me," and they did.
That "cross before you" isn't just a nice metaphor, it isn't just a line, you can sing along meaninglessly. Taking up your
cross is a hardcore reality that you've got to accept in the matrix of your understanding, your concept and perception of
what's to be expected out of this life. Your cross is your destiny.
And just like with Me, and every other true follower of Mine throughout history, your cross will always be provided for you
by people.
If you keep in mind that that is your destiny, just as it was Mine, you won't be disillusioned, you'll know what to expect.
Your job, which is seeking first the Kingdom of God, which again consists of people, is your cross. Those people who
constitute your job for Me, and that you're supposed to lay down your life for, also become your cross.
As My follower and as a partaker of My sufferings, that is what you've got to expect.
That cross is real. It's a reality. And you've got to bear it willingly.
You've got to stop trying to avoid the hurt and the pain, but realize that it's essential it belongs. If you try to evade it and
run from it, you'll never learn the lessons you should, you're never going to get the point, and what's worse, you'll fail your
destiny.
You've got to allow them to "crucify" you and cause you that pain. You cannot run from it or try to resist it... It's your
destiny not to fight back. Learn from Me how to take that suffering and hurt from people without resisting it, without any
attempts of defending yourself; you've just got to let it be.
If they reject and resist you, rejoice, for so have they done with Me, and it means you're in the same boat with Me. You can
learn some of the same lessons I learned, experience some of the same things I did, and bring forth some of the same
fruits, accordingly; most of all, the fruits of really being able to love and pardon.
True happiness is only found in voluntarily choosing the path of suffering for My people, the path I have chosen, and the
path that marks the life of everyone of those who have chosen to truly follow Me, although they all may be manifested in
different ways. What matters is that you accept your path, and not try to walk someone else's.
I was criticized by My own followers, brethren and closest friends, betrayed by one of them, and denied by another... Walk
a mile in My shoes! If you want to follow My path, then that's what's going to be expecting you.
If you're receiving some flak and feeling rejected, welcome to the club!
Those who want to serve Me usually prefer to do so on their own terms, within a well respected church or environment.
Not many are willing to pay the price for discipleship that is laid down in My Book: persecutions, sufferings, being a
stranger in this world, slandered and lied about, and taking up your cross to die daily.
Being a disciple and a warrior for Me has nothing to do with being nice. The word nice is nowhere to be found in the Bible
and is simply not what I'm all about! Especially not what the world considers nice!
You're a follower in My footsteps, so your fate will in many ways be similar to Mine. You won't always be a success with
everybody. There will always be those who oppose, resist and reject you and all you have to give, just as they rejected
Moses, the prophets and Myself, and nearly each and every one of My true apostles throughout history.
Popularity is one of the first things that has to go on the offering plate if you're out to serve Me.
There won't be a lot of folks in the world thinking you're nice, but rather, a dangerous religious nut. And the only peace you
will have, which will also keep you from swallowing the lies the Devil will tell the world about you, is that there's a handful
of people, your closest friends and loved ones around you, who will know who you really are.

Being part of the Real Thing is the severest and most difficult series of tests one can take in this life!
Only the truly elite and chosen ones can pass those tests, and I'm not talking about the "smartest" or the "greatest" and
obvious "winner" types. Only those who are truly willing to look like the losers in this life have the stuff it takes to become
that kind of a winner, and that's what it takes and what it means to be following in My footsteps. Too many of My followers
still insist on wanting to look like the winners...
My road is not the road to fame and fortune and easy success in this world.
The Real Thing doesn't look very inviting at all. It's difficult, in fact, in worldly language, you could describe it, "as tough as
hell."
It's the path that requires everything. The one where I will leave nothing left over of your pet quirks, your pet idols, nor any
of your little pet lies and deceits and cover-ups, all your little weapons of self-defense that you learn how to use in the
System.
Remember the common attitude people throughout history had toward those that I had anointed and risen above their own
heads in some way:
Moses - "Who made thee to rule over us?..."
Joseph - "Here comes the dreamer..."
Nehemiah - "Come down from that high and mighty wall of yours..."
Samson - he wasn't exactly popular during his lifetime among his own people, and subject to criticism and gossip,
especially because of his affection for women, particularly women that were not really part of the "clan..."
Gideon - "Who does he think he is, sending the rest of us home again, and how does he think he's going to win a battle
against an army with 300?"
And then the prophets... What makes you think that they were ever popular?
Look how the people rejected Me, their promised Savior, and how they resisted Paul, My greatest apostle and mightiest
tool in My hands, without whom Christendom never might have spread the way I had intended.
They were the outcasts of the outcasts... The ones considered weird and "untouchable" by those the world considered
weird and untouchable. That's why they often raised their very own crop of followers of Mine to Me. They didn't rely and
wait on the support and popularity from their ranks.
There were always those special few who chose to play the tunes that I gave them to play, that didn't always say what
others wanted to hear, but what I wanted them to hear and chew on.
It costs a price to walk the straight and narrow path that leadeth unto life. Entrance through the door may be for free, but it
costs something to stay on that path.
A "professional" (disciple) means someone capable of availing themselves of My Power.
Having learned that your own strength isn't enough is one of the prerequisites for being a professional disciple.
Playing games is something for kids. But when you grow up to be a man, you're supposed to lay aside childish things, as
Paul said (1Cor.13:11). Nowadays, everybody wants to play and stay a child for as long as possible. Very few are really
serious about life, much less about living their lives for Me!
That's why it often takes quite a few years until I can get a person to the point where they're willing to lay everything - all
that playing games - aside and follow Me.
It's a rough & rugged way, and often you'll be tempted to wonder, "What in the world am I doing here, anyway?" There
won't be rounds of incessant applause. It's a rough & rugged, lonely road! With so many jumping off your wagon that
you're tempted to ask the last few who remain, "Are you also going to go away?" But then there will always be a faithful
few who will end up blowing your mind, making it worth it all!
Follow Me every day according to the new set of rules and circumstances you'll find that apply for each day in particular.
Keep moving with the breath of My Spirit, and come, flow with Me!
Youve got to do what Ive given you to do without being deterred or distracted by whats going on on your left and your
right! You cannot let it influence you when those on your left and right are stumbling or falling. If they decide to go a
different way, if they allow themselves to become lukewarm and be influenced and swayed by the System, youre still
going to have to keep going for Me!
Even if youre forsaken and betrayed by everyone around you, in the worst case scenario, as it did happen to Me.
If youre truly going to be following in My footsteps until the bitter end, youve somewhat got to be prepared for that.
In the case of My children and followers who know Me well, I expect them to do their part, so I dont just do the whole
magic on My own, but I have you participate as much as you can, in making it happen.
I show you where to throw the nets, but I wont throw them out for you. There is always a solution. I may make you go and
find it for yourself, but I give you a nudge in the right direction.
Those who hang with Me become different. They become weird. You dont necessarily want to be different. Youd prefer to
fit in and blend in and just hang with everybody and chill. Well, I have chosen a different destiny for you.
Your loyalty to Me, to My voice includes showing a willingness to be left alone and isolated in some cases.

Focus outwardly, out on the field and the flocks that are yet to be gained. The time of physical dearth will be a time of
