Hold On Just A Little Longer

Lately, the Lord has been bringing up the passages referring to the gift of the Holy Spirit found in the book of Acts chapter 1 starting from verse 6. Which says;

When they had gathered together, they asked Him, Lord, are You at this time going to restore the Kingdom to Israel?

He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons, that the Father has established by his own authority, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Interestingly brothers and sisters, I got this Rhema 3 days in a row and right before preparing this message today, I got it again a 4th time, as if to confirm that truly, the Lord desires for you to know what is on His heart and His plans for you in this season of your life.

The first time I got the reading or Rhema, honestly it didn’t strike any curiosity in me. I can’t pretend that I even remember contemplating it or even think about it further after reading it. However, the next day I got the same reading again… And I thought to myself, “but I got this already…” This time around, it puzzled me… So, I thought about it a little bit… Because I don’t believe in coincidences. God and coincidences cannot co-exist. Therefore, Like I said, I dwelled on it a bit, but I had things to do, so again I moved on to the next thing…

The next day, I got the same readings again. Well, this time, it stopped me completely in my tracks, this time I had to know what it was that the Lord was trying to tell me. And before I continue, As an aside… Like Mother Elisha usually says, I would like you to consider, how faithful our God is… He is faithful, He is patient, He is a loving God… Because even though I paid Him no mind, the first two times, He repeated Himself just enough times to catch my attention.

He is an amazing Friend… Oh where would I be, without this friend…? You, that always feels rejected, that always feels unloved and unworthy… Well, you have friend in Jesus, He is always good, always faithful… He always listens, He pays attention, He is never in a hurry because He always waits for me…

Anyhow, when I got the reading a third time, I was convinced that He wanted to tell me something… I kept waiting to hear from Him… But what came to mind was an interesting memory of something that happened in the beginning of the year. Towards the beginning of the year, we started a watchman group where we got together every day to pray and intercede for different intentions and requests from the channel or anything that would come up. And a couple of weeks later, the Lord revealed that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit was coming, the latter rain that He promised in Joel Chapter 2 verse 23, which says,

“Children of Zion, delight and rejoice in the Lord, your God! For He has faithfully given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain in the first month.”

That is also mentioned in Hosea Chapter 6 verse 3, which says;

Let us know, let us strive to know the Lord; as certain as the dawn is His coming, He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain unto the earth…

And we see it again In Jeremiah 5:24 it says that the Lord gives both the former and latter rain, in His season. And in the New Testament it says in James 5:7;

Be patient therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and latter rain.

If you recall or remember that, in the beginning of this message, I mentioned the reading that I kept getting where the Lord answered the apostles saying,

“It is not for you to know the times that the Father has established by His own authority, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you….”

And Yea.. it was nice to remember these verses and to remember what happened in the beginning of the year, that the Holy Spirit is going to be poured out upon us and that we would receive power… You know there are plenty of teachings online about that, and plenty of prophecies…

So again, the Hot mess that I am… I Moved on again because I had things to do… I know, I know… I’m a hot mess! Quoting Mother Elisha again… But later on that day, we had the bi-weekly team meeting where the whole team comes together to pray and fellowship, and I started realizing that many was feeling down and carrying a heavy cross, to the point where some were even saying that they didn’t think that they’re going to make it for sure this time. And that’s when the Lord prompted me and enlightened me about the readings…

He said; “They’re feeling just like the apostles were feeling in the upper room, as they waited for the promise of the comforter that was to come… They were tired, scared and unsure if they were going to make it…”

And that’s when the readings became clear guys…

If you guys remember, the apostles were hiding in the upper room, because they were being sifted by their enemies, they were scared because of the many things that were happening to them… And it was during that trial, while hiding and praying that they received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit…

Dear Brother and sister, if your life seem to be in shambles… If your marriage seems to be at an impasse or place where all hope is gone… if you’re feeling like you’re jumping from one fire to another, because wave after wave of trials seem to be hitting you… Hold on just a little longer… because the glory of God will be poured out on you very, very soon… Because if you remember, after this outpouring happened, nothing scared them, they became bold, to the point where they were even flocking to the guillotines… they were waiting in line to be Martyred for the Lord…. Hold on, just a little longer…

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
