Hello brothers and sister and Heartdwellers family.
After our prayer group and taking authority over this Jezebel spirit, I woke up the next morning only with four hours of sleep but a peace I couldn’t explain. The light of grace had come, and joy was overflowing in my soul. All the songs in worship pierced the depth of me as tears were freely flowing now, but with gratitude for the Lord and His great mercy towards me. As I realized, Jesus was faithful. I was fixed on all my list of promises and forgot how he had been for so long, so faithful to pull me out of the mire, to deliver me from my enemies and to always bring deliverance when I was oppressed. We have been through many fierce spiritual battles together and Jesus has never forsaken me even when I had forsaken him. He has been so faithful.
I cried with such profound gratitude and began to pray asking the Lord to deliver our children and to deliver so many others who were oppressed. I had a few souls in mind who seemed to be always under oppression and struggling to see breakthrough even in small victories the Lord has given them. I cried for them too asking the Lord please, your mercy, Lord, your mercy over them. I realized as Heartdwellers we are called to be overcomers. The Lord doesn’t usually deliver us speedily—no he has taught us to overcome, to persevere through our trials, to endure in tribulation, to wait upon him patiently until grace comes and lifts us again. We are overcomers, we are called to fight the good fight of faith so that we can teach others how to overcome in long suffering, rather than a quick fix, quick scripture, and quick deliverance prayer.
So, after receiving the Lord I was full of thanksgiving and came before him saying:
Good morning Lord,
Thank you so much for your goodness; thank you so much for your mercy; thank you so much for your grace; thank you so much for your deliverance, and breakthrough; thank you, Lord. You have been faithful to always come to my rescue to bring me salvation when I am in the pit of despair. You have been faithful, Lord. You are faithful, trustworthy, and true. When I look back and see the many times I have run from you—and you ran after me—the many times I couldn’t fight any more, and you never stop fighting for me, for our marriage and for our love. Thank you for the many times that you have protected me, sheltered me, and sustained me and so many others. Thank you, Lord. Oh, how I don’t know how to thank you enough for all that you’ve done.
When I am in darkness, that is all I can see is darkness and see everything from that persecutive which are all lies, and half-truths. But when the light of your grace comes it shines in my heart and reveals to me the absolute truth that you are good, you are God, and you are faithful. Thank you, Lord, and thank you Blessed Mother. For I know it is by her intercession that satan has not had his way with me. Even from birth when he marked me for his use it was by your intercession, your motherly love and jealous protection that have brought me here, now to your Son. Thank you Mama, thank you Jesus. I am filled with your overwhelming peace, with your joy and with gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just wanted to thank you today, Lord, for you are so worthy of all thanksgiving and how I so lack in praising you daily for the big things and the small things. Thank you Jesus.
What is on your heart?
“Rejoice! Today is a new day that I have made for you, so rejoice and how full and pregnant with purpose, sacrifices and little love notes I have placed upon your path to tell you how much I love you.
“My beloved little one, come and drink from the fountain of my love that is all yours always ready and available to strength you to nourish you and to encourage you. Your counsel was accurate today, My love. Yes, I am the vine, and you are the branches. Without me you can do nothing—the vine, My beloved brides, is of My love.”
As an aside I was counseling someone in confession and that just sprang from heart as this scripture came to my mind.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.”
“It is My love that is the life force and the sap that runs through the vine of the Fathers love and My love giving life to all the branches that they may bear fruit. My doves, when you don’t come to receive my love you will dry up wither and die. When I ask you to come to my presence it is not so much to do rote prayers, and holy duties, but first and foremost you must receive My love.
“All of those things are good and necessary, but without My love force penetrating your heart it then becomes a heavy yoke, a burden, leaving you dry, anxious, and restless as you strive to please me rather than rest and receive Me, there is a difference. Many of you have been in that valley for so long—striving to please Me, striving to come to Me, striving to hear Me, striving to pray, striving, striving, striving. My beloved little ones just come. Come as you are in all your weariness, in all your brokenness, in all your shame, even when you’re under oppression, come. Even when you feel nothing come. Even when your angry with Me, beloved ones, come.
“This wall you have been feeling is not at all from Me. I am not disappointed in you; I am not angry with you, and I am not punishing you. I want to heal you, deliver you and to feed you the life force of My love that will break every yoke, every chain, and every oppression you are under. When you know I love you, when you receive My love it washes way all insecurity, all fear, and all condemnation.
“The devils will continue to do everything to keep My brides away from Me. They will do everything to keep you striving which exhausts you, and once you crash you give up thinking that I am hiding from you and even resisting you. I am not, My beloved doves, I am not. I am here every ready to embrace you and to forgive you and to restore to you your pristine beauty in My eyes alone.”
Lord, if I may ask, what about those who get attacked with perverted thoughts, with all sorts and manners of distractions during prayer time? Especially, when they are trying to touch the hem of your garment.
“My beloved you know the answer and so do they. I have given many teachings on those concerning sexual temptations in prayer. I cannot guarantee those attacks will stop. You must persevere, My brides, through that, taking authority and completely ignoring those images, those suggestions, and even vibrations you feel. Cover yourselves in the armor right when you get up in the morning. Clothe yourself with prayer and even if you have to fight to enter into my presence, come. The fighting may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning and joy is coming. Some of those same tactics are still used on you is it not, My beloved one?”
Yes, Lord they are.
“Does it stop you?”
No, Lord, it doesn’t.
As an aside, guys, it’s not like you get to a certain level in the Lord and all the attacks and oppression stop. You have heard the saying, new levels, new devils. So, it’s actually quite opposite. The more anointing and grace you receive come with more opposition and oppression to steal that anointing. The devils just get more subtle. I still get attacked at times with sleep paralysis, with perverted images and distractions even in prayer and sometimes in worship. I no longer allow that to cause condemnation or fear in me. I ignore these diabolical suggestions and keep pressing in. St. Therese even taught me when she would be given a fleeting image or thought to distract her from prayer she would draw profit from that by lifting up that intention before the Lord rather than hiding it in shame or trying to take it away from her mind. She would just offer it up.
Now say for instance I am in prayer and immediately get a thought about an ex-boyfriend or even some sins I did in my past. Rather than feeling ashamed or even disgusted I stop and realize, where did that come from?—Wait, that wasn’t from me it’s from the demons who are trying to draw my mind away from God. Then I immediately to begin to pray for my ex [boyfriend] or pray for someone I committed that sin with n my past, or even offer a prayer for a soul right then, who may be committing the same sin right now, that the demons are suggesting to me. The Lord has told me that makes the demons depressed because their attack didn’t work. Rather, every time they shoot me with an arrow from my past, or a perverted image, or sexual temptation, I take that arrow and offer to the
Lord in prayer. It doesn’t work, which leaves them so frustrated. Don’t you want to make the demons depressed for a change? Try that!
“And the attacks in this way have greatly diminished upon you. Why? Because you have persevered. They know it no longer works because you ignore them and continue to press in. That is what I need my brides to do. You who are being oppressed in this way it is because of your high calling because they fear your branch, your growth. When you really connect yourself with Me, you will become a tree, a cedar so large, giving food to not only to souls, but to creatures alike with the amount of fruit I have destined for you.
“The Father prunes those who are bearing fruit that they may bear some more, and these attacks are a sure sign of the fear that you cause the demons if you press on and persevere through. And you will, Beloved ones, you will, I have destined you for that. Ask Me for My perseverance. Ask Me for the grace to receive My love in the midst of your trials and come every day to drink from My fountain of love that is available for you.
“Without Me, without the knowledge of My love for you, you can do nothing. But with Me and with the knowledge of how much I love, and adore you, you can and will do everything. For nothing is impossible with My strength running through you”.
That was the end of Jesus’ message. Beautiful….
I received this Rhema from Bible Promises to confirm it: JOY—Psalm 97:11-12, “Light is spread as a seed for those who are right and good, and joy for the pure in. heart. Be glad in the Lord, you who are right and good. Give thanks to His holy name.”
Beautiful message. I think many of us are overdue for a love transfusion, I think it’s time.
God bless you family until the next message.
