Hello, Brothers and Sisters and Heartdwellers Family.
Thank you for your prayers, the Lord is faithful as I see Derricks desires for God growing tremendously as the Lord is drawing him closer and now drawing us closer.
However this particular weekend I got the Rhema, Psalm 55 and my heart dropped because it’s a bout betrayal from a friend. I have gotten that before and it didn’t end well. So my heart became angst wondering who it could be. As the enemy was pelting me with all these thoughts that could it be about him…I kept getting 555’s all that weekend, I began to think the worst.
Then I had married ladies whom I spoke to going through troubled marriages and my heart was so burdened for them and the crosses they had to carry. Pleading with the Lord to give them great strength to endure patiently and trust the Lord to bring their husbands around.
I pulled Rhemas the following morning and got, Be on Guard Attack/Temptations against Sexual Purity and the card had flames. I thought, oh boy—I was wondering if this was for me or if he was giving it to me to warn someone else. My heart dropped thinking maybe Derrick would be tempted by another woman. I went to the Lord and was surprised as he confirmed it was a warning for me. I had many times lustful thoughts attack my mind here and there, but it has been such a long time to be really tempted to burn with lust. I thought with whom, Lord, and where.
During prayer the Lord began to speak to me. Lord, I am sorry I have been so distracted today and hurting inside could you please shed light on what is truth and how you would like me to handle everything?
“My beloved, I did tell you there were a few more battles ahead with you and Derrick, but don’t believe the lies that he has fallen into sin or has backslidden. Yes, he has many friends whom I will begin to weed out and bring conviction and light to his heart about my ways of purity. But his heart is with Me and for Me, and his heart is yours.
“So do not fear the thoughts, and memories of the past that you are being assailed with. I need you to trust Me, keep your eyes on Me and keep your heart for Me alone, Beloved, until I give it away. You are easily moved by how you feel and anxieties and fears from the past jump on you and the demons have a field day. Yes, this is a suffering, and it pleases me that your offer it for the salvation of souls and to bring relief to difficult marriages. You are carrying many burdens in your heart, hence this cross.”
As an aside when trying to discern this message I was having all types of confusion. I finally told Mother Elizabeth to help me, and the Lord told her to pull a Rhema and it read;
Suffering of Relatives and Friends
Pray: O Lord, all my longing is known to you, and my sighs are not hidden from You. My heart throbs and my strength is spent, even the light has faded from my eyes. I am ready to do your will, for I want what you want. -Psalm 38-10-11
The third Rhema card I pulled read;
A slanderer reveal secrets; so have nothing to do with a babbler! – Prov 20:19
…As the Lord was making it clear there were demons of slander and reproach assigned to me. They were slandering Derrick and also this message. As I also realized I was carrying a cross of fear of betrayal and unfaithfulness in marriage, carrying the burden for some closest to me. To confirm that, the following day received a call from a family member who shared with me her trial in her marriage, and she was finally ready to leave but wanted me to pray and see what he Lord’s will was. I thought, Wow Lord, so that is what all this confusion and burden I was feeling was about. It was a cross for someone else.
Thank you, Lord, for clearing that up because my heart was in a doozy. After two days of all of this confusion the Lord spoke to me this message.
“You, on the other hand, need to be careful, Beloved. There is still much work to be done, but I am bringing you two together and the temptations will intensify to cause your conversations to go off course or rather your mind. Please keep Me at the center, keeping your conversations pure and keeping your love for one another pure. Arm yourself intently and fervently before you sleep so demons of lust don’t get a foothold and entice you to fall into sin. Be mindful of your daydreams and your thoughts, Beloved. That is how the sin of lust and sexual sin starts. It starts with a thought, for the battlefield is the mind.
This scripture came to my mind,
2 Corinthians 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
“Don’t be overconfident and think you can just imagine something quickly and not linger on it. The devils bank on your doing that. They throw all manner of things at you—sensations, vibrations, and images all work together to bring you down and bring your mind into impure thoughts and motives.
Then as He was talking, this scripture came to my mind,
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
“My beloved ones, many will be tried in this way—sexual temptation with Me in prayer or sexual temptation with another. But you are My brides and I have made you pure, set you apart for that purpose. My ways and My love are always pure, with no hint of sensuality or perversion. When you feel that in prayer know it’s a demon. Now, when you’re with a person the devils release vibrations and have the power to control electric impulses in your body. They shoot a thought at you and your body reacts, causing you to meditate on what you’re feeling. Then they bring an image to draw you into the desire and replay it over and over again. That is why you can be around a soul and immediately feel passion rush on you, or when you watch something, or read something. When you feel that sensation in your body they are demons, renounce a spirit of lust immediately and hold that thought captive from your mind and drop it like a pebble in the ocean of My mercy. Then ask for the grace of purity.
“My beloved children do not play with fire. Even if it’s with the soul that I have chosen for you. If you are not married yet, do not engage in ideas, conversations or even thoughts of intimacy. That is a setup of the enemy to draw you into the fire of burning lust and passion for one another and you reason with yourself, ‘Well we are engaged’, not realizing your slip into this sin is a slip downward to a marriage and union of sensual pleasures versus a union with pure love and deep intimacy. Resist the devil and he will flee – James 4:7. As you flee from every sexual temptation that comes your way.
“What you watch, listen to, and read has a specific image as the demons play on vanities, beauty and sexuality to lure so many young minds and hearts into sin. It bears repeating, the battlefield is in the mind, Beloved ones. Guard your thoughts, your actions and, more importantly, guard your heart. Let me help you in this. When the temptation arises do not run from me in guilt or shame or cower. Rather call upon My name, plead the blood of Jesus over the source they are using to stir your passion, whether it be a soul, a book, a video, or a song. Plead the blood of Jesus over it and then immediately say, ‘I renounce you spirit of lust. I declare that my mind is pure, my body is pure, and my heart is pure in Jesus name’, and the flames of passion will be doused. Go now, Beloved Brides, to be forewarned is to be fore armed.”
That was the end of Jesus’ message.
As I shared this with Mother Elizabeth the Lord brought some more things to her mind to equip us all to resist and not fall into this temptation. One thing she mentioned was that it was necessary for us to avoid the appearance of evil [1 Thessalonians 5:22].
WHICH MEANS TO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN SITUATIONS, ALTHOUGH THE MOTIVES MAY BE INNOCENT IT APPEARS EVIL. FOR INSTANCES BEING ALONE WITH SOMEONE YOU HAVE FEELINGS FOR—OR WATCHING SOMETHING THAT HAS JUST A FEW INAPPROPRIATE SCENES—THE DEVILS ALWAYS GET US TO REASON AND HAVE CONFIDENCE IN OURSELVES RIGHT BEFORE WE FALL INTO SIN SAYING, OH YOU CAN HANDLE THAT, WHEN THAT SCENE COMES, YOU CAN JUST FAST- FORWARD IT. OR, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN, IT’S JUST AN INNOCENT HUG, HOLDING HANDS THAT LINGERS A BIT TOO LONG, ETC. DON’T EVEN GO THERE!
Then lastly, the Lord gave her a PRAYER that has been effective for her when she too is hit with these temptations. The prayer goes….
I REJECT YOU SATAN IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS GET OUT OF MY HEAD!
That simple. Then ask for the grace of purity with all sincerity and Jesus will give it to you. If the thoughts come back say that quick 911 prayer again as she calls it and then ask Holy Spirit to control your thoughts.
I hope this message helped some of you. I know these hits all of us at all different ages, but the Lord is so gracious to help us to stay pure in body, soul, heart, and mind.
God bless you family until the next message.
