Lay Yourself Down

Hello, Brothers, Sisters, and Heartdwellers family. It has been a hot fire over here. Lord, help me — He has been, and I thank him for His mercy towards me. I found the first temptation from our lack of understanding concerning the Blessed Mother, which had led him (Derrick) to succumb to the previous temptations I mentioned.

He grew up Catholic and now is a Fundamentalist Charismatic Protestant. I was sharing with his friend, our testimony, and how Blessed Mother was instrumental. He didn’t like that at all, [and] didn’t desire for me to mention her. I told him I had to honor her. And he was clear that he didn’t want that thinking to continue, especially when we started a family. And I strongly retorted back, “I am going to tell our children about her.” She’s one of the main reasons why we are together.

Now, before I married Derrick, we had this issue and I told him that I would submit to him and how he wants to raise our children once we got married. But to be honest, I thought for sure, by now, the Lord would make him understand who she is. I shared with him the book “The Truth about Mary” and that sent him into a tail-spin of despair, insecurity, and second-guessing our marriage — and utter fear, which led to the temptations I mentioned in the previous message.

I remember that morning I didn’t know what was going on with Derrick and I asked him if everything was okay. He mentioned to me, it was, but after prayer, I pulled a Rhema card, and guess what it said — “Pray For Derrick”. So I went before him, asking him again – what was going on? But he wouldn’t open up and I didn’t know what to pray for, as all these thoughts bombarded me.

It wasn’t until later that evening, he shared with me that he had read the document, and how it had shaken his foundation of our marriage. Nothing has gone the way I planned, and I was hoping the Lord would bring us together, in unity and spirituality, a lot faster. But, realizing he has desired, rather, a painful walking through things than a quick supernatural fix and grace.

I then was doing the Lord’s Supper and got Ephesians 5 again, reading, this morning,

the second time this week, about wives submitting to your husbands. Things were getting really tense between us and I knew I was dealing with a curse landing and Derrick wasn’t thinking clearly. But I was tired of the fight. I kept thinking – do I have to let go of Blessed Mother now? Really Lord? You would want me to submit to even that in this marriage?

So much is being stripped from me. His Pastor friend, whom I shared the document with, is coming back to the city with us and wants to sit down with the two of us, as they both take me through scripture because he was hurt too by my beliefs. I just wasn’t sure I was up to another battle. I then remembered I got a Rhema before these trials started from Blessed Mother and it said:

Although being raised to the highest honor as the Mother of God, 7 sorrows pierced my heart with pain. Yet I submitted to them because of the will of God. So don’t defend yourself, bear everything with humility and let God defend you.

It kept ringing through my mind during prayer. I then saw a vision of Me meeting with his Pastor friend and Derrick, as they went through the book, and Mother Clare’s teachings, denouncing all the truth. And I quietly said nothing, but rather showed that I was interested in the way they understood things, and interpreted scripture.

I didn’t defend anything at all, but rather I would say, “Ok, I see where you’re coming from, let me pray about it”. No pushback or defense. As if the Holy Spirit was saying, “Submit to Derrick on this one for now.” As I thought: but Mama, no one can talk about my Mama and…ok. I knew I had to lay this down and trust the Lord, although felt I was dishonoring her, by not defending her and the truth.

This morning, I laid my ring at the altar, telling the Lord I was unsure if I could go on. I just didn’t have the strength anymore. I was so tired in this fight and full of bitterness. Crying out for the Lord’s help and He came. Jesus came to me in all white, with his hands extended. And I just broke down in his arms as He held me. Then He extended His hands and put them in mine. I held His hands and looked at the wounds of the nails pierced, and I was reminded of His love for me. What love did for me; and He was asking me to do the same for love of Him — to endure, to persevere, and not give up.

So I came before the Lord, as I felt it was actually Blessed Mother speaking to me.

Good morning Mother, I felt you wanted to speak to me.

Our Mother of Mercy began,

My beloved, oh how I have wept with you. And I am here to comfort you, beloved little one. All of Heaven is behind you yet again, always and forever my dear one, you are not alone in anything. I know it’s been very difficult, but continue to tarry a little while longer, breakthrough is just around the corner beloved one. No longer be lax in prayers, in adoration to your communion with the Lord, or shorten the time. If you shorten that, the enemy will indeed take advantage in every way.

“Also, you haven’t been praying the binding prayer or putting on your full armor as you should. I told you, My little one, that coming to Ghana, is the witches’ cauldron. Although you have won the victory, the battle is far from over. After every major victory, there is always a test and trial of virtue. That is what you’re in right now beloved one. You are being refined in the virtue of patience, love, and great humility.

“This next month will be difficult for various reasons, but the readings given to you today, should give you clear direction beloved – submit to your husband in all things. The enemy will use the least thing you contend with, to further drive home his belief and argument which is a lie, that you are too difficult, and this marriage will never work because of it.

And as an aside, after receiving this message and much prayer, something broke today and Derrick apologized for everything. These witchcraft curses are no joke.. it’s almost like two different people when something lands. And when it breaks, he is himself again. Please continue to pray for us, it’s been so rough.

Back to Our Mother of Mercy speaking,

“The Lord has made it clear He has allowed contradictions, and you will face many of them next month. Submit to Derrick in all things – from the greatest to the least of his requests beloved one. As you do that unto him, you are doing that unto the Lord; and the enemy will have no argument or validation to land his accusations against you.

“No longer try to defend yourself in anything else, as well my little one, especially concerning me and the scripture evidence you have presented before them. The Lord is working and in His time, He will make the truth very clear and real for them. I am so pleased that you desire to stand for My honor, but in this case – the enemy will use is as a source of division and contention. So be patient, listen and allow them again to teach you what they know.

“Ponder over the rebuttals they give and don’t say much, but mention that you desire to pray about everything, as you have the flock pray behind you. I will open their hearts and illuminate their minds, to the truth of what has been given them; and the truth of My love for them. I Myself, will come to your defense my little one concerning this. Give it time – so many other saints were oppressed this way, within their families and own marriages when it came to Me. How the devil has cleverly fooled so many with his lies, and manipulation of scripture.

“Martin Luther was the same. Although an instrument used by God to fulfill His plan, Satan indeed got in. And as the reformation began to cause a greater chasm within the church – various pressures ensured that he would throw away all that seemed Catholic or associated with the Roman Catholic Church; to ensure he was doing nothing outside of scripture. Within his marriage, his wife was one of the causes of this as she began to suppress the truth in scripture and the role I played in the Church.

”He too felt the pressure to do the same. Although he had a devotion to me; it then become secondary, then hidden, then nonexistent. So you are not alone in this fight, and many of your children are going through the same. Many have married and now have become brides dwelling in God’s heart, with spouses with different beliefs and understandings. It takes great grace, humility, and brotherly love, to allow yourself to be humbled in this way. To tread lightly, to not persist or insist in any way; and to show them with your love, the fruit of not only being a Heartdweller — but having a devotion to me.

“It will be by your love and acts of love, that will draw your spouses — wanting what you have. This is a cross and a great trial of sanctification for all who have been given this cross. And some — it will cost you more than that. But do not fear, for God is a God of give and take. He never takes away anything that he won’t give back — even sweeter, more abundant, and even better than it was before.

“My beloved brides, for those who find themselves carrying this cross – I know it’s difficult. And we have seen your frustrations and many times tears; wanting your spouse to understand your love and devotion to me, your love for the blessed sacrament, your love for Jesus. But rather too many call good evil, and are influenced by the devil because of the hardness of their heart, the blinders, and veil that has been put upon them.

“Know the Lord has permitted all of this to chisel you even further, and refine you in love and submission, to the will of God. You have become a slave to righteousness, but all is not lost – there are different seasons for each of you. Some, for a season you will have to carry me in your heart alone. And others, there will be a season when the prayers for your spouse are ripe and ready for harvest — where they will hear, listen, and understand.

“That is why I desired to stay hidden in scripture, and the good Lord only revealed me to the little ones, for this very reason. I never intended to be the cause of division within the family or Church, but the enemy has made it so. I love the Church, I am the Mother of it. For all Christians are my children, and I would rather have all believers loving my son, worshiping my son as Savior and Lord, and not knowing Me.

“Although I was exalted to the highest honor any creature created can be given, I desire to stay insignificant and small until the appointed time, in any and every situation. I will give you wisdom as to when to stand for my honor, when to proclaim the truth boldly, and when to be silent. When to be patient, and rather prayerful to souls who are not yet ready, and have not received the grace to come to me.

“For just as Jesus said: “No one can come to Me unless the Father draws them.” – no one, my beloved brides, can come to me unless Jesus draws them. So don’t force your way, insist, or persist. But rather pray, present what you know, and leave it for me to defend, even with signs and wonders, that indeed I am the intercessor of the Church, Queen of Heaven, and Earth, and also alive in Heaven, very real and alive, making intercession for the whole world.”

And that was the end of Our Mother of Mercy’s message.

Please lift me up in prayer guys. Continue to lift up Derrick, this marriage, and the mission the enemy is seeking to destroy, by causing various attempts of division and strife. Thank you guys for your prayers, it brings me much strength.

God bless you, family.

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!
