Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family,
The Lord mentioned that there would be many attacks against our faith, it seems if its not one thing than is another. I have been really struggling in prayer and faith to trust my discernment and trust the Lord with provision. We are helping so many and left with little to do the work for the City of God.
Jesus had given me a Rhema this week that said “Lavishly give to the Poor” I feel as a reminder that we were doing things the right way. Helping those in need first then trusting Him to provide what we needed but its been a real test of faith now that we have a soul coming to live here to help with the mission and we are still hoping the Lord would touch the landlords heart to give us a better deal and provision to get the house. When doing the Lords’ Supper, I got the reading on the Holy Family, but it was all about Abraham and his faith it read:
In Genesis 15: 1-6, 21:1-3: “The word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision saying; “Fear not Abram! I am your shield; I will make your reward great” But Abram said, “O Lord God, what good will our gifts be if I keep being childless and have as my heir the steward of my house, Eliezer?” Abram continued, See you have given me no offspring, and so one of my servants will be my heir”. Then the word of the Lord came to him: No that one shall not be your heir your own issue shall be your heir” The Lord took Abram outside and said, Look up at the sky and count the starts, if you can. Just so, he added, shall your descendants be.” Abram put his faith in the Lord, who credited it to him as an act of righteousness. The Lord took note of Sarah as he had said he would; he did for her as he had promises. Sarah became pregnant and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time that God had stated. Abraham gave the name of Isaac to the son of his whom Sarah bore him.”
Then Psalm was 105 stated: “The Lord remembers His covenant forever.”
The second reading was Hebrew 11. And what touched me was:
“By faith Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was ready to offer his only son, of whom I it was said, Through Isaac descendants shall bear your name HE reasoned that God was able to raise even from the dead and he received Isaac back as a symbol.”
The Gospel was of the purification ceremony Luke 2:22-40. With baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph how Simeon held fast to revelation given to him by the Holy Spirit and therefore was able to see the promise fulfilled because of his faith.
These readings even touched on some personal promises for me and I could feel the Lord saying, have faith, have faith, have faith.
So upon receiving Him I came before Him saying, what’s on Your heart?
“I am giving you the faith of Abraham you and all My brides. Faith that is unaverred, deterred but what seems like contradictions but hopefully and wholly trusting in Me, God, to do what I said I would do. My brides, I am raising up a Church full of faith and righteousness. The whole body of Christ is going through refining fires and trials right now as we speak, not one believer is isolated, but all have been given various crosses to test their faith and to grow them in perseverance and endurance. This is so very good for My brides and so very, very good for the Church.
“I have said in the last days – when I return, will I find any faith on the Earth? I intend to find a remnant of souls who have held fast despite the most difficult persecutions and trials they have undergone this will not happen overnight but you must be trained, stretched and tested in your faith in order to be worthy to be called a believer. A believer is someone’s who simply believes, in faith, what I have already accomplished, what I have said, and believed in what I would do.
Faith not tried in the fiery furnace, is no faith at all. Many even now confess to Me with their lips but their hearts are so very far from Me. They are those who can be likened to the seed that fell on rocky and thorny soil; having their hearts choke the seed because of the cares and worries of this world. Those who have not been deeply and firmly rooted in My love. They are easily swayed by circumstances, people and situations.
“The gospel has been sorely presented in the worst way within this generation. So many are taught to simply confess and believe in their hearts that I am Lord, and that is all for their salvation. And that having Me in their lives will bring great blessing, promise and hope. Which to an extent My beloved ones, is true. But there is so much more to your salvation I need your co-operation. And the inheritance as a child of God, is the inheritance of the cross. That is what is missing in this generations gospel message which is the most powerful message and most necessary message of all.
“Paul preached Christ and are crucified, and that is all he desired to know. That is all he desired to do was to share in My suffering that he may partake of My glory. (Romans 8: 17 & 18) Where are those who will embrace the cross? Where are those who will take hold of the crown of thorns and wear it with pride? Where are those who are willing to be crucified with scorn, contempt, false accusations and false suspicion, contradictions and be continually judged and misunderstood, all for the sake of the gospel? All for the sake for love of Me and love of souls?
“My beloved one, you asked last night what to teach – teach this My bride, teach it. There are so many Christians bewildered, and new believers being easily snatched away by the world and allurements of Satan. They had expectations of a Christianity, I never presented, but man has packaged and presented. They have a desire to live a life of prosperity and blessing, yet despise the cross. Forgetting I too had to carry the cross, die on the cross just to be resurrected and glorified for the glory of My Father and the honor to My name, and they must do the same. The cross is one of the greatest gifts given to souls that they may draw closer to Me, that they may come to know Me and experience My love in the most deep intimate way. That they may see the world through My eyes of compassion, mercy and love and that is only by the way of the cross.
“My beloved brides I am giving you fresh and new faith to trust Me more and more, in all that I have said and all that I am asking of you. Believe Me, My dear ones, your faith will not be disappointed but rather richly blessed for all to give Me glory and say of your life: God has done this thing!”
And was the end of Jesus message.
Thank you family for your support and your encouragement again. As I mentioned before, we have a GoFundMe campaign, to raise donations to begin the first phase of building the City of God community. We support over 15 persons or organizations every month. So after giving out donations to those in need, we are left with little to nothing, to begin this building project. So any amount is greatly appreciated. As these funds alone will go directly into the claiming of the land and the set-up for the community. Please help us reach our goal. The link is below to donate. Or you can donate via PayPal as well.
God bless you family, until the next message.
