Sea billows appeared like race horses that were off and running. Moving on up like Sea Biscuit. The Sovereign Lord said:
You will see what I want you to see. What My word says. When I said for you to plant the heavens it was because what you plant and where you plant will have a dramatic impact upon your lives and the quality of them. It's a slothful son that sleeps in time of harvest. And likewise the Father is not glorified in a son who sleeps and loves to slumber when it is time to sow. If you spare sowingly, you shall also reap sparingly. I say: Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch forth the curtains of your habitation. The whole nation has been under a "spirit of tyrrany." Observe the life of the Son of Man and how tyrrany was dealt with. He did nothing through strife and vain glory. The Father in Him did the works and gave Him the doctrine which He spoke. When tyrrany arose, He lived His life in subjection to His Father as usual. He did not say: We will flee on horses, even as he saw the destruction of Jerusalem approaching. But He did say: You will flee.
But some trust in chariots and some in horses. But we will remember the name of the Lord our God. And now says the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord: I must go in search of the Jonah's in all the places that they have fled to make a comfortable bed for themselves. I will be your Comforter says God. Do not look to another. Do not cry for the rocks to fall on you but fall upon the Rock and be broken in these areas in which the imaginations of the heart have made merchandize of you!
You are the people of the Most Holy. Tread carefully in My sanctuary. There are many needs in the lives of your brothers and sisters and I have come to heal and restore. Your city can be no creater than My sanctuary within that place. See billows of glory clouds rolling about you even as you stand in that Most Holy Place on Holy Ground, for I am all around you and in you sustaining and supporting your very soul and that work which I have called you to. Do not fear the oppression of the Enemy. Do not condemn Jonah. Many of you have areas in which you have gone into hiding too. But I have come to search out and to save that which is lost. There have been many losses. The tyrrany of the urgent has caused vision to be set aside. Do not hide your face from He who sits on the throne, for I d your with an everlasting love and with loving kindness have I drawn you.
In My name there is pardon and forgiveness of sins. Lay your head upon My bosom, as the disciple John and listen to the heartbeat of your Heavenly Father. Walk in step. Savor the aroma and sweet scent of the corn and wine and oil, held here within My arms for you even as you sow. See the vision which I have given you. Not the tormenting billows of tyrrany rolling like thunderous clouds about you and crashing with the angry jagged fury of the Oppressor.
The arrows of war are within the hand of the Lord of Hosts. I will show you where to aim this and this and this under My direction. Hidden in My quiver are more than enough. Do not say: We do not have enough! I Am the Lord your Provider, am I not? I have arisen as a Mighty Warrior to show you how to fight. Not from slumber have I awakened, for I neither slumber nor sleep, and when for three days and three nights the Son of Man was in the heart of the earth, it was not sleeping and loving to slumber, but busy about the Father's business, gathering that entourage of captives which I lead triumphantly on high. Even so you--As you fall as a corn of wheat into the ground and die, yet shall you live. Yes, yet shall you work the work of righteousness while it is yet day.
THE HEALING & RESTORATION OF WOUNDED WARRIORS
There are those that would say to the wounded brother: I can only carry you so far! Let Me help you to carry that burden says the Lord. For there are those being carried when they should be healed, restored and raised up, and so shall they be upon My shoulder says the Lord. Lean on Me as the disciple John. Hear the approaching hoofbeats. They search diligently for the precious life but hidden in My bosom they shall not take the precious life for which they hunt, though privily they look diligently. No matter how many of them go out against you, they shall flee in seven directions before your face for I Am the Lord your God. Avail yourselves of the counsel of seeking My face and My matchless grace in your secret chambers and the pages of My eternal and unchanging word, and lean not on the arm of flesh if you would remain healthy. For the Enemy has been sent forth in many directions to say: I have been looking diligently for you. I have prepared the bed. Some mens sins are open beforehand and others follow after. Do not go as an ox to the slaughter. Do not sacrifice in this unacceptable way. But present yourselves a living sacrifice that you might prove that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Now is come salvation and the kingdom of your God and the power of His Christ. You I want for the kingdom says the Lord. Be there, where I AM--For hell is moved with fury to capture those things which are beneath. Judge all things by the pages of My word. Be possessors of that kingdom which shall not be removed!
Spiritual Warfare Against Youth:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (Gen. 11:6)
After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him, they were astonished. (Luke 2: 46-48a)
God gives me a vision in which I see young people saying: I wonder what it would be like not to have to go to school today? They are learning to harness the power of the imagination. Teach them to take every thought captive to the obedience of haMashiach/Christ, who as the Son of Man studied the scriptures as any Jewish son. He did not wile away the hours when He should have subjected Himself to the Father of Spirits and lived, by loving to slumber but He was about His Father's business. "Teach your souls to take captive that very vision which God has given, which would go astray, says the Lord. And keep My word as frontlets before your eyes and bind them on your forearm."
Part of this spiritual assault is coming through secular music. I saw a Mom whose son had been listening to the oldies but goodies song: The Book Of Love By the Monotones. Obviously the author of the song had been meditating on love, marveling at it, and wondering where it came from. Not wanting to see a spiritual force use secular music to move her son from out of a place of faith to wonderment, the Mom made this insightful comment to the phrase:
I wonder, wonder who, who-oo-ooh, who (Who wrote the Book Of Love)
She replied: I don't "wonder" who wrote the book of love. I know! God did! Then she quoted: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God."
The Lord said: Teach youth to judge the spirit of music and they'll disgard much of what they shouldn't listen to. On Mars Hill, Paul talked to the crowd of secular poetry. (Acts 22:17-31) This was a lesson in lining things up with scriptture, and teaching them to embrace truth, not error. Where he observed their spiritual hunger, he enlarged upon it, and not in a condemning way.
22. Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, [Ye] men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25. Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26. And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27. That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28. For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 30. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31. Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom he hath ordained; [whereof] he hath given assurance unto all [men], in that he hath raised him from the .
The Spiritual Assault On Wives:
He girds your loins with strength. Strength and honour are your clothing. (Proverbs 31)
The wife says: What would it be like not to have to serve My husband and family? I'm weary of preparing meals, and washing clothes and cleaning house. This is an erous spirit out fishing says the Lord.
Spiritual Warfare Against Men
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." (2 Corinthians 4:7.)
Likewise to the husband I say: Seek the treasure in the earthen vessel, and do not say: My work is in vain, though this years harvest may hold some discouragement for you. As long as you live you shall have seed time and harvest. Plow up your fallow ground. Seek My face till I rain righteousness in every place where you have set your plow. And expect fruitfulness in abundance. Don't just say: Where's this abundant life? You and I are co-workers together, are we not?
Satan would fill your mind with: All I have to look forward to is the grave! There's a far more eternal weight of glory than the grave says the Lord. Don't you want to slip the surly bonds of earth and touch the face of God? To teach your young ones that I am your portion forever? An inheritance that fades not away? Don't teach them of heavenly things with the voice of self pity, but let them see eternity in your eyes. For Satan walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He looks for a door of opportunity to say: Hath God said? Believe that with long life I will satisfy you and show you My salvation!
