Your Persecution Makes You A Minister Of The Gospel

Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May we all gain strength, that we are ministers of the gospel, in our persecutions.

I really didn’t want every message centered around Derrick and I, but man guys… the fire has been hot, and every day there is always a test of virtue that I just seem to fail. I found myself full of so much frustration and anger this morning, because of something that was said and how I was treated.

I was in self-pity and so weary from my unfair treatment and me always having to be the way to lay myself down. I was over it, and was contentious in the morning. Lord help me. When I came into prayer, the Lord soothed me with songs of encouragement to keep going and that everything would be ok. Then he got me with the Rhemas, they said:

“Pray Self-Deliverance Prayer”

In my pride I thought, who me? Wait.. I’m the one who needs deliverance? Come on Lord! But I knew there was so much bitterness, anger in my heart. When things would happen, I would be silent but my heart would be screaming “Lord help me” Then the second Rhema summed it up:

“I know you’re a hot-mess but you’re My hot-mess” – Jesus

Yup, truly that is who I am. Well said Lord.

The third said:

“Bind Demons of Sabotage”

And I heard in my spirit immediately, that I was being used to be an obstacle in what the Lord was doing.

So I sucked in my lower lip, repented, and prayed the self-deliverance prayer. Will actually repost that on the channel after this message. It’s a very good prayer and the first time I did the video on the channel, I threw up. So embarrassing, but I didn’t record that part.

Sometimes, or many times as a Christian, we get strongholds from demons because of wrong attitudes, and thinking; and we need deliverance every day as Jesus has taught us, and that is why we pray the binding prayer every day. It’s very important you pray that prayer. (If you don’t have the binding prayer, let us know – email us and we’ll send you out one.) Other times, we need deep deliverance, and that is what I needed this morning.

After receiving the Lord I came before him saying:

Jesus what’s on your heart?

Lord, when will things change? It seems every morning I am burdened by this union one way or another, and my emotions get the best of me.

I realized guys, I’m the one who needs to change.

Jesus began,

You have been assigned demons of sabotage beloved. They want to use you to obstruct all that I am doing. It may seem like nothing is happening, but a lot is happening beloved that is why I have encouraged you for the past few days that it won’t be much longer. Be patient with Me and with Derrick. No longer allow your emotions to rule.

“I know it’s hard, but a day of redemption is just around the corner beloved. Where all your ills, wounds, deep hurts; will not only be healed, but understood by him as well. He will suture you with his love and faithfulness. For now, I need every sacrifice.. please?

“Now that you have bound the demons, do not open the door for them to come again. You will be tested this week in various ways, to rather respond with frustration, impatience, and anger; or respond in love, understanding, and sometimes quietness. I know you think you look like a fool, but you are – you’re a fool for Me.”

And this scripture came to my mind:

1 Corinthians 4: 10-13:

“We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored! To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the Earth, the garbage of the world, right up to this moment.”

And I was like – wow, how on point that is for many of us believers. Many times we may not see our sufferings or humiliations being effective persecutions. Or having offensive words said to us, or looked down on or rejected, or being ostracized by your loved ones because of your faith – but all of that makes you a fool for Christ. Wow, Amen. May some of you draw some strength to endure further, rather than clam in self pity and bitterness as I have done. But not anymore, by Gods grace.

Jesus continued,

You and all My brides are being persecuted in various ways for the sake of the gospel, for the sake of souls. That’s what I want to talk to My brides about today –persecution. Many times, you were taught to think persecution was only from external factors; people coming against the church, people coming against Christian groups, people coming against you because of your faith. But so many of My brides are suffering spiritual persecution because the persecution is coming from people you do not see. Sending assignments, curses upon My body to cause frustration, discouragement, and despair; to cause you to doubt in My goodness and who I am. My brides, all of you are under persecution one way or another. Even the sickness I permit.”

And just as an aside here guys – Jesus is talking about a Simons cross of sickness. He is not the source of sickness, but he does allow it as a cross. If you pray and it doesn’t go away, the Lord is using it to humble you, and also to release many graces on souls to be saved because of your suffering.

Back to what Jesus was saying,

“Even the sickness I permit, devils are sent by Satan to torment you day and night with increased pain and lies that you have sinned to deserve this sickness, that you are cursed; to cause you to be hindered in what I have asked you to do, or even to debilitate you. But My brides, I have taught you well that no suffering is wasted. Even the worst of torment I allow you to go through under persecution, nothing is wasted.

The greater your persecution, the greater the grace, the greater glory you will be given when it’s all said and done, because you have shared in My suffering, so now, you will share in My glory.” (1 Peter 4:13)

“Some of you face persecution through your children, who constantly are targeted, going through various sufferings. Do not disregard that I don’t see how difficult it is for you to mother children who are rebellious, or carry sorrow in your heart for a wayward child, or a prodigal son who is enticed with the world, or a child with addiction, or a child who doesn’t listen to you. All of that are demons of persecution sent to you and your family, to cause you to be dejected and discouraged.

“Yes, war has broken out upon My saints, My brides, but I will ensure you all will prevail. You are My ministers of the gospel. Yes, even as a mother and father, as a believer who suffers for their faith one way or the other – you are a minister of the gospel and don’t let anyone tell you different. That is something the entire Church doesn’t understand quite yet. However, your white martyrdom pleases Me, and all your sacrifice and tears comes up before Me like a sweet fragrance, so pleasing to the Father.

“My brides, you have transformed cities, communities, and nations for the sake of the gospel. Your sufferings have backed up many ministers on the ground and those in the field, to yield a wonderful harvest, in which you are responsible for. Unreached people groups are being touched by My grace, in visions and in dreams because of the persecution you have endured for love of Me. Souls are being saved in their numbers and hardened hearts turning back to Me, because of you are enduring your persecution. Nothing is wasted My brides, and as you have been praying for loved ones, trust that as you have believed, your household will be saved (Acts 16:31). So no longer worry about that. I will save each and every single one of your family members.

“Some you will get to see the joy of their salvation here on Earth, and others, you will see their radiating smiles of redemption when they make it to Heaven. So I want to encourage you My brides to continue to tarry. Don’t lose hope or be caught off guard by these persecutions. Continue to hope all things, endure all things, and believe in Me.

And that was the end of Jesus message.

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!
