Hello, Brothers, Sisters, and Heartdwellers family. Preparation for this trip has been wonderful. Emotionally, preparing has been something else. The majority of it has been good, but there are some times that things are said unknowingly that pierce my heart and today was one of those days.
Derrick and I had a conversation and I found out he has to go to Sierra Leone on his own now, for a few days, and come back to Ghana before he meets us there for our trip. I went to the Lord [to see] if that was his will and got confirmation. I could feel fear and insecurity rise up in me. I could see he [Derrick] was beginning to get confused again and I knew he was being toyed with by the devils. Some of the statements he made were in the opposite direction of where he had been going and feeling lately. Rather than me seeing that it was the enemy I took it personally and feelings of wanting to give up came over me all over again.
So in the morning the Lord, being so gracious even before I started praying, began to speak to me because the feelings of discouragement were overwhelming.
“My beloved, don’t cry, both of you are being buffeted right now. You should know and be smarter than the devils. Don’t allow them to steal your joy or the promise in which I have spoken and has been confirmed by more than one and two witnesses.”
It’s true, the Lord knows how hard and painful the assignments have been, making me want to give up before this trip. So He has been confirming, not only with what He has shared in the messages, but one brother who doesn’t follow the channel closely had a dream. He is very prophetic, and his words are on point. He texted me just the day before [to ask] if was struggling to believe God concerning the trip. At that time Derrick and I were good, but he continued to share that, in the dream, he was encouraging me.
He said, he came to me and knew it was Holy Spirit that had given him a word for me concerning the Sierra Leone trip. “Fasten your hands to your cup.” It wasn’t the cup of suffering, but the cup of God’s goodness. He never listened to the message the Lord gave us called, “Brace Yourself for My Goodness”, and he continued to say, “The Lord is going to shock you with His goodness!!” I told him about the message, and he was pleasantly surprised that the Lord’s word was confirmed, and I was taken aback that Jesus was serious about this trip and giving everyone around me words concerning it because he knows how weak I am.
“You’re so close, Beloved. Do not have any disparaging thoughts towards him and give in to how you feel, how he feels, or what is said. I have told you once before, and as you have seen, his heart is changing more and more, Beloved. These, seemingly, setbacks are assignments from the enemy and the devices of his own flesh and reasoning. You are a source of conviction for him, of truth, and of My love. Do not give up.”
What about his new trip to Sierra Leone, Lord?
“Don’t worry, pray for him and all will be well. Your prayers are working.”
I’m sorry, Lord, I keep thinking — is there anything you want to talk about? Sorry I have been so consumed with myself.
And family, I wanted to hear from the Lord concerning my issues but [I] really wanted to get a message for all of you that is not about this trip. But Jesus, knowing my thoughts and being so sweet, said,
“Beloved our hearts are one and the same so what’s on your heart is on mine as well.
I do want to give you more counsel concerning this trip, Beloved. I assure you it is Me. It would be good for you and Brother Juniper to get together three times a week praying a Rosary for this trip and what I intend to do there. Be very expectant, Beloved One. [On] the days you pray together consecrate yourself to Me, offering every sacrifice, and intention for the mission there. Heartdwellers is growing and I am using you to do it, Beloved Little One. There will be many divine appointments and I will have you meet a soul there who will be your point of contact to reach many of the poor and suffering — those who do not have a voice and are helpless in their situation, which I am bringing you to help. This soul will be one of integrity, someone you can trust and can work alongside to bring relief to the people in this country.”
Lord do you intend to establish another community?
“I intend to establish My presence strongly there first. All else will be made clear to you upon your arrival and the time spend there. You asked what is the language of the people there, Beloved. It is love”
As an aside, I got three Rhemas a few days before, that said,
Cloud of Witnesses, St. There of Little Flower
“When her fervent prayers to God and the saints were left unanswered, she thanked them all the same, saying I believe they want to see how far I will push my hope”
The second said, “She spoke the language of the people. -Blessed Mother (Be like your Mother dear, speak the language of the people)“
The last said, “Success!“
I immediately knew it was about my present situation, waiting on the promise, and the last two were about the trip. I kept asking Lord what is the language of the people in Sierra Leone. Blessed Mother had made known [that] the needs of the people in Ghana were help and love for the children, but I was unclear about Sierra Leone. So I pondered that for a while hoping the Lord would tell me.
“That is the language that transcends all cultures, all people, and all religions. There are many Muslims there who live very amicably with their fellow Christian brothers and sisters, and I want them to know Me, that I am the Truth, the Way, and the Life — that I love them and that I am their God. I will use you and your brother to convey that. Go with the tenderness of My Mother and the heart of a lioness knowing that this nation has already been given to you.
“Do not fear anything. You will mother these souls and they will come to see your sincerity and love which will cause them further to trust you, even those of a different religion. Do not push religion at all on them but show My love. You are not going to convert, but to love these little ones. And by My grace and My power, conversion will come. Ask for the gifts you want to see displayed and it will be given to you — all to bring many souls to Me. Pray for Derrick as well, he too will be endowed with power from on high to bring healing to many through his hands and in prayer.
“Souls there have been longing for something real, something tangible, and wanting to truly experience Me and it is coming. The readings from your Lord’s Supper today were to encourage you, Beloved One, and that of all My brides, to lift up your heads in the midst of the storm and of your enemies.”
I received the Easter Vigil reading today and all the readings were about the goodness of God, His faithfulness, and how He delivers. The first Psalm that caught my eye was Psalm 33. It said,
Upright is the word of the Lord, and all his works are trustworthy. He loves justice and righteousness; of the kindness of the Lord the earth is full.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made by the breath of his mouth all their host, He gathers the waters of the sea as in a flask; in cellars, he confesses the deep.
Blessed the nations whose God is the Lord, the people he has chosen for his own inheritance from heaven, the Lord looks down he sees all mankind. Our soul waits for the Lord who is our help, and our shield. May your kindness O Lord be upon us who have put our hope in you.
“I am using your enemies to bring Me great glory just as I did with the Israelites. Their obstinance, their hardened hearts, and every curse thrown at you, I am turning around to bring Me great glory. For it’s in the battles when all seems lost, is when I am able to show up in the most powerful way and I am about to do that. So confounded will all your enemies be, My beloved brides. You have inherited the promise of Abraham.”
The second reading was about the sacrifice of Abraham, our father in faith. Genesis 22, the last paragraph said,
Again, the Lord’s messenger called to Abraham from Heaven and said, I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you acted as you did in not withholding from me your beloved son, I will bless you abundantly and make your descendants as countless as the stars of the sky and the sands of the seashore; your descendants shall take possession on the gates of their enemies and in your descendants, all the nations of the earth shall find a blessing-all of this because you obeyed my command. The word of the Lord.
And I had been getting the Abraham Test readings (a couple of times) this past week.
“What is his, is now yours because you have obeyed My command — giving Me all that I have asked you for, tested over and over again without turning back or retreating. You will be rewarded.”
And here I knew the Lord was talking about the promise of marriage, Derrick, the City of God Community in Ghana, and many things I have given up. I have had many painful Abraham tests in my walk with the Lord.
“Your children and your children’s, children will live in peace and inherit all that I have given you and so much more. You see, the blessing of Abraham has been passed down from generation to generation and was fulfilled in the birth of My Mother, the Virgin from whom the Messiah would come. After My death and resurrection, all who would believe have been grafted into this Abrahamic Covenant — a covenant that is eternal and will stand for all time. This generation, especially, will come to see the fulfillment of this covenant.
“I am not at all done with My church or with you, My brides, this is only the beginning. Do not concern yourself with the times, wars, and rumors of wars or my imminent coming, from stopping you from dreaming with Me and receiving this blessing, expansion and increase that is coming your way. Do not resist, cower or worse — reject My inspirations, My promptings, and the blessing I desire to pour out upon you, because of how dark it looks and gets.
That is the more reason, My brides, you much shine brighter. When those around you are stripped, you will be fruitful. When those around you are at a loss, you will gain. When those around you valuables decrease, you will increase in My joy, in My peace, in provision, in abundance and in My blessing.
Many are at their Red Sea, and you have prayed and tarried for a long time and have come head-to-head with the end of yourself and what looks like the end of the road.”
I just want to say, the third reading referred to that. It was Exodus 14. The first part said,
The Lord said to Moses, Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to go forward. And you lift up your staff and with hands outstretched over the sea split the sea in two and that the Israelites may pass through it on dry land. But I will make the Egyptians so obstinate they will go in after them. Then I will receive glory brought by the Pharaoh and all his army, his chariots, and charioteers. The Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord when I receive glory through Pharaoh and his chariots and charioteers.
“Raise your staffs in praise, raise your staffs in gratitude, raise your staffs declaring My victory as the waters part before you making a way when it seems like no way. Walk boldly and confidently through this open door that I have created for you. This Red Sea has now been split and watch Me consume your enemies in My fury leaving not one standing — but bringing the fear of God upon all those who are against you and those who will witness even what I do.
”Sierra Leone is mine and now will be given to you, Heartdwellers.”
That was the end of Jesus’ message. Wow!! And I would like to end with the last two readings which tie it all in as the Lord speaking to us his weary brides;
5 For your Maker is your husband—
the LORD Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
he is called the God of all the earth.
6 The LORD will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—
a wife who married young,
only to be rejected,” says your God.
7 “For a brief moment I abandoned you,
but with deep compassion I will bring you back.
8 In a surge of anger
I hid my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness
I will have compassion on you,”
says the LORD your Redeemer.
9 “To me this is like the days of Noah,
when I swore that the waters of Noah would never
again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
never to rebuke you again.
10 Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
11 “Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, a
your foundations with lapis lazuli.
12 I will make your battlements of rubies,
your gates of sparkling jewels,
and all your walls of precious stones.
13All your children will be taught by the LORD,
And great will be their peace.
14 In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you.
And the last Psalm is:
I will exalt you, O Lord, for you drew me near
and did not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, you brought me up from the netherworld;
you preserved me from among those going down into the pit
Sing praise to the Lord, you his faithful ones, and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger lasts but a moment a lifetime his goodwill
At nightfall, weeping enters in but with the dawn rejoicing
Hear O Lord and have pity on me O Lord be my helper
You changed my mourning into dancing.
O Lord my God forever will I give you thanks.
Wow, family! I hope you ALL are VERY encouraged by this message. The Lord will use our enemies to bring Glory. Persevere, endure, and do not give up!
God bless till the next message.
