Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May we all receive the grace of diligence and labor for Jesus with our whole hearts.
As you all are aware, the girls and I have officially now moved off of the mountain to the house in Taos. And by the girls, I mean Mother Magdalene, and Irina from Portugal, who are both coming with me to Ghana. We have been bonding beautifully, thanks to the grace of the Lord and Blessed Mother, who appeared to us during our first community worship service this Sunday and said, “I am the Mother of this house.” Which was such a relief, as I told her, I have no idea what I’m doing, I need help. She also gifted us with fresh anointing oil pouring over our heads, and it was a wonderful time in the presence of God! It was amazing! Also, when we had pulled our Rhemas, I got one that I was very surprised and excited to get, and it read:
-Still small voice journals
Now is the favored time, pray and begin!
I thought really, Lord? That was a vision he gave me a few years back and I told him when I pulled this Rhema then I knew it was time to start. And now is the time. The ladies and I were so excited about this. The Lord has really given great visions concerning Heartdwellers and many ways we can spread His love and teachings through different avenues to reach the whole world.
However, the following day when we gathered to share our Rhemas, I got two, foretelling ones about a trial and correction coming. The first Rhema said, “Greater affliction for God’s devout,” which always indicates a trial, and the other read, “And in the coming days your episcopal office will serve you well to correct, admonish and exhort God’s faithful servants. You will shepherd my sheep with great care.”
I thought “Uh-oh, that means a correction is coming that I have to give of some sort.” Although the new project venture the Lord had given me to start was very exciting, I began to feel very overwhelmed with all my responsibilities, over the priests, over the channel, over the intercessory group, over Mother of Mercy devotion, over the ladies at the house. In prayer, I broke down crying asking the Lord to please help me, that I really needed help. We just had our ministry meeting and one or two people were going through some things and wanted to give their responsibilities to another. I found myself not only trying to get my responsibilities done but frustrated that I had to watch over others to make sure they were getting their work done. It was just too much.
I then thought to give their responsibilities to others who would be a bit more responsible, and I then went to the Lord about it. I kept getting “Laziness” for each person until the Lord made me realize they were all being lazy with the task that was given them and that they were not the only ones in our little family being lazy. Some were being lazy with their priesthood and confession, others with their own ministries, and others with this ministry and the responsibility they had been given. So the following morning I woke up with my heart heavy thinking, This is the correction the Lord was talking about, and I immediately heard Jesus speak to me right when I woke up.
See, I had stayed up until almost 3 am to get work done and Holy Spirit woke me up pretty early so I was still very tired and groggy. As I felt I needed to get my laptop to write this down, my body was saying, “You’re tired, go back to sleep…” as I thought, “Ugh oh, you can’t be lazy. Get up, girl!” So I got up.
“Focus, Beloved, focus! I will renew your strength, you will see. Obedience always comes with the grace and strength to do what I am asking of you.
“My beloved dear ones, I have made it known to this little one that Laziness has indeed cloaked some members of this group and is looking to overtake you all. Ask me for the grace of diligence and obedience to overcome this, then correspond with it. Each of you has been handpicked for this work. She may be leading this, but she cannot do it on her own and each of you has been called to come alongside her for this work, My work, and that of My mother’s. You are a very important part of the livelihood of this ministry, My beloved little children. This ministry is an international one and so will be the community, City of God. There is so much in store for each of you, for the ones who take me seriously and her seriously as well. In the world, you labor tirelessly for trifles. Now I have answered the cry of your heart to not only live but to work for me; to build something that will last eternally which will be the fruit of your lives, drawing many, many souls to me. Yet, you get lackadaisical, make excuses, and lack much courage for the things asked of you.
“You must know, Satan has each and every one of your numbers, a file a mile high, and he knows how to get you easily distracted, easily discouraged, and worse off, walking in pride and self-will by putting off the things asked of you, by putting your priorities, your family, and your business first. Do you not know when you take care of my business, I will take care of yours? I am the best employer, and the Kingdom of God is the best organization you can ever work for because you receive 1 billion times your investment. Match that with any stock or company in the world—you would find none. In the world, you work for measly dollars that perish—right when you receive the check, gone to bills and frivolous spending. In the Kingdom of God, you are given graces, consolation of my presence. You receive help from Heaven as the Angels I send every morning to assist you with this work. You are protected and provision is made for you and your family for you have and will lack nothing. You receive anointing daily to do the task. As gifts are hidden within, some that you are unaware of, come to life and bloom. Your heavenly reward is beyond your understanding and can never be taken from you if you are faithful. And some of you will be given kingdoms and lands to reign over with me once you arrive because you have been faithful with the little things.
“I am calling you all higher yet again, much, much higher. When you are lazy in this life, it affects everything you do. You then become lazy in charity, in practicing virtue, then lazy in prayer, and lazy in your relationship with me. Before you know it lukewarmness sets it and you become comfortable as you become a vile taste in My mouth that I desire to spew out. I don’t want any one of you to lose the crowns that I have in store for you, to reward you for this work I have called you to. Please, run this race to win. You have a wonderful example of leadership before you, for this little one works very diligently for me although many times throughout the day I, too, chide her for laziness but she responds immediately and gets to work.”
As an aside, right after receiving this message, the Lord kept giving me Rhemas on Laziness and I discerned it was about me. I thought, really, Lord? Show me, please. And He made it known to me that I was being lazy in joining the Mother of Mercy live prayers on Facebook. You see there are 5 of us that do the live prayers. I was responsible for two days. Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, with all my other responsibilities and my prayer time shortened I asked one of the brothers on the mountain to step up and he did. So he takes Thursdays and I only do Tuesdays. He always joins us when we do our live prayers on Tuesdays, but I had in mind that I could have Thursdays off and sleep in and also have longer prayer time and that is what Jesus was giving me Laziness about. He wanted me to get up. Although I wasn’t leading the live prayers, to make sure I get up every Thursday morning to join them on Facebook to pray. I told you, Jesus doesn’t let anything slip, even with me.
“This is not the time for rest but the time for battle, My dear ones. You can rest when you enter into heaven. This ministry is so hated by the evil ones, and Satan himself, because of how you will impact souls upon this earth. You will be a tree, like that of in Lebanon, where souls from all walks of life, tribe, and tongue will come and rest their hand under your shade, eat of your fruit, and be transformed as you abide in the vine.”
This scripture came to my mind: Ezekiel 17:22-24
Thus says the Lord God: “I will take also one of the highest branches of the high cedar and set it out. I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and will plant it on a high and prominent mountain. 23 On the mountain height of Israel I will plant it; and it will bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a majestic cedar. Under it will dwell birds of every sort; in the shadow of its branches they will dwell. 24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the Lord, have brought down the high tree and exalted the low tree, dried up the green tree and made the dry tree flourish; I, the Lord, have spoken and have done it.”
“This ministry will bear fruit that will remain, for you have been destined for that; to reach the whole world. But I need everyone on board, fervently and diligently working for me and My mother’s cause day and night. You know what you have been given to do, do it and do it well and within the time given. Do not see any task too small, for it’s in the small task given to you that you prove your love for me and creates a ladder of obedience which will lead each of you to your destiny. Will you labor for me, your spouse, with your whole heart?”
That was the end of Jesus’ message.
Sure enough, Jesus renewed my strength after only getting a few hours of sleep. I then spoke to a few of the members, and I pray everyone takes this to heart, especially those who are called by the Lord and want to be used by him. You must be diligent and faithful with whatever the Lord gives you to do. There are many nights where I am physically and mentally spent, and the Lord has taught me to not adhere to my feelings or even what my body is telling me because the flesh is always at enmity to the spirit. Your flesh wants to be comfortable and is always in self-preservation mode. But the Lord’s grace follows the Spirit of God. He will always give you the grace to meet whatever He is asking of you. I once got this Rhema from Mother Clare’s file, “A servant of the Lord should go to bed as if they have been beaten.” [LAUGH]. I can’t remember what saint said that but they weren’t meaning to be slaves, but more so, work—give yourself to the work of God until the last drop.
So, he is wanting you to press in, in prayer, to stay up and be diligent to work, to do something that is outside of your ability or comfort zone for ministry, He knows the grace in which he wants to give you to accomplish that. But you must cooperate and trust in his grace to not only equip you but carry you through. By nature, I am a very lazy person. I would talk a lot but not do much. And if I did do something, it was very sloppy. I still have those tendencies at times, hence why the Lord had me stay a whole other year in the community to work on that aspect of my character. Somebody wrote in the comments during our live prayer on our Mother of Mercy page saying that I am such a hard worker and responded, “No I’m actually not, but my spouse is”. [LAUGH] Jesus puts a fire under my butt every time, and he is the one who has made me diligent, not allowing me to slip, to do things sloppily, and to be responsible for all He has given me. Jesus doesn’t play with me, and I now see why, because this is so much more than me. It’s important that I am diligent and a faithful steward with all that He has given me so others who follow me can be diligent and faithful too. In it truly lies your destiny. I didn’t know all those late nights years ago, when I had a full time job, and Jesus would make me stay up after work, sometimes until 1-2 o’clock in the morning, diligently, just to do a blog, or post video that would get 15-30 views and with only 100 subscribers, would lead to this ministry and a whole community in the future. You never know where the Lord is leading you. Be faithful, be diligent, be responsible, and do your work well. Please pray for my strength and please pray for the group that all members would rise up and take ownership of this ministry and mission as if it were their own—because it is.
God bless you, family until the next message.
