Remember To Show Mercy, Just As You Have Been Shown Mercy

Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.  So, there was a little situation that happened in the evening between me and a soul. I did something the Lord had asked me not to do and when this soul was offended by my actions, I got frustrated and angry with them.. although I was embarrassed that I got caught. I was brooding, but deep down knowing that what I did wasn’t right, despite their reaction.

Sure enough, I pulled the Rhema:

God’s loving Correction
“Thank and sweetly kiss the hand of God that strikes you because it is always the hand of a Father who strikes you because he loves you”

St. Padre Pio.

When I saw this soul again in the morning, we apologized to one another. I began to feel the weight of guilt in my heart, because I was in the wrong for sure this time, but a part of my pride wanted to hold on to anger. I was also feeling embarrassed by my actions the night before and wanted to distance myself. However, this soul was very kind, compassionate and showed me much grace in their actions towards me. I was pleasantly surprised, because you know when you have conflict with someone, many times they can tend to act funny when you see them again.

Furthermore, going into prayer, I was also embarrassed to face the Lord because of my terrible fall. However all the songs he played were about His great love for me and how nothing could separate us. Song after song He lavished His love through the songs Holy Spirit played through my shuffled playlist. I was overwhelmed by the presence of God and overwhelmed by the love He showered on me, and not songs of correction or disapproval. One song He played by Amada Cook called ‘There Is Nothing’, had me in tears. And the lyrics go –

What could separate us from Your love?
Is there anything, anything?
What could be more final than Your blood?
Is there anything, anything?

There’s nothing, nothing, nothing
There’s nothing, nothing, nothing
There’s no height and there’s no depth
No power in hell, no scheme of man
There’s nothing, nothing, nothing

[Verse 2]
What could be more powerful than grace?
Is there anything, anything?
What could keep You from the ones You died to save?
Is there anything, anything?

What could shut a door You’ve opened
That could override Your word
That could claim to be a mountain You can’t move
Oh, there’s nothing that could
Keep You from Your children
Or change the way You feel about them
Build a wall that’s strong enough You can’t break through
Oh, there’s nothing
That could shut a door You’ve opened
That could override Your word
That could claim to be a mountain You can’t move
Oh, there’s nothing that could
Keep You from Your children
Or change the way You feel about them

I was in tears, now healed and strengthened by His love.

Then my Lord Supper readings sealed it all for me. The first reading was:

Hosea 6:1-6
“Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
    but he will heal us;
he has injured us
    but he will bind up our wounds.
After two days he will revive us;
    on the third day he will restore us,
    that we may live in his presence.
Let us acknowledge the Lord;
    let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
    he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
    like the spring rains that water the earth.”

“What can I do with you, Ephraim?
    What can I do with you, Judah?
Your love is like the morning mist,
    like the early dew that disappears.
Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets,
    I killed you with the words of my mouth—
    then my judgments go forth like the sun.
For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,
    and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.

I knew the Lord was chiding me. Since we were doing this fast, I remembered Jesus gave Isaiah 58 about the fast that He desires and that it was important that I didn’t get angry, or cause strife – and I was now guilty of that. It hit me that my fast wasn’t pleasing to the Lord if I wasn’t showing mercy as well. How can I fast yet still hold on to anger in my heart? The Lord desires mercy instead of my fast offering, instead of my sacrifice of food. So I repented, humbled again at the Lord’s mercy towards me.

I came before him and immediately could hear Papa God speaking,

God the Father began,

 “My heart is always mercy towards you my child, always mercy and love. Your life will testify of that, you are called to teach and preach about that, so you must experience My mercy first hand. Taste the sweetness of it and the goodness of My hand”

Papa, I did this morning! Thank You so much for your continuous trust and belief in me when I fall and mess up. This was pretty bad. Thank you for using that soul to show me Your love.

 “This soul will continue to do so beloved. Your answered prayer stands right before you. My mercy will continue to reign in your life and that of others. Meaning you will be given ample opportunities to show mercy yourself as well. Be prepared for this beloved little one. I am a God of justice and mercy.

 “My beloved dear ones, as you press into prayer and fast before me, offering every sacrifice for your prayer intentions for your nation, nothing escapes Me and I appreciate every little sacrifice; but what I adore the most, is acts of mercy. As it is written, I desire mercy not sacrifice. All of you will be tested in this area one way or another during this 21 day fast. When I said I desire mercy than sacrifice, it’s because many of the religious leaders in that time where full of self-righteousness and not full of mercy and love They did many pious acts, extraneous fast offerings and sacrifices, but it was an abhorrent smell to My nostrils. 

 “The fast that pleases Me the most, is a fast on self-denial, self love and selfishness which they were reaping within. My little ones I desire to purify each and every single one of you to become instruments of My love and mercy. Expect circumstances to present themselves of injustice, partial treatment, unkind word, offensive actions, rejection, frustration, and interruptions set up to see how you will respond. Will you demand an apology, demand things to be rectified according to your desire, demand justice even? Or will you show mercy?

 “Remember, the mercy that you have been shown by Me. How I have loved you through your weakness, vices, sin and all your mess. I don’t see your flaws My beloved little one, I see your efforts and good will and that greatly pleases Me. I see all that I went through to have you next to Me, to have you in communion with Me and dwelling in My heart, and it means the world to Me my dear little ones. There is a space in My heart where so many soul have been lost by the lust and love of the world and deceptions of Satan. Do you know that nothing can separate My love for you? I mean absolutely nothing.”

Romans 8:35-39

 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 “I even love the souls who have chosen hell rather than the glorious abode of Heaven. I send no soul there, they choose, and My justice is sentenced but even then, My mercy is still at play. Oh, if souls only knew the vastness of My goodness and mercy, no-one would run or even choose that place. My children would run to me every time they fall, rather than buckle in shame and condemnation.

 “You see my little ones, even when you are guilty, My mercy is extended to you. I know your guilt, and all you have to do is confess your error and come to Me, turn into My merciful arms that await to hold you, love you and strengthen to pick you up again after a fall, and encourage you that I believe in you, I love you and I trust you. With more grace, you will conquer your struggles and weakness. With more trust in Me, fear will leave you once and for all and you will know you have a Father in Heaven who loves you so dearly, yet is so close, ever so close, to hear the cries of your heart and come to your aid in your affliction and need. I am God, Father and Friend, there is no other my little ones. Come to Me, the more you taste of My mercy, the more merciful you become.

 “How quickly some of you can forget My great love and mercy towards you. In the moments of pain and offense, you rather lean towards resentment, anger and bitterness rather then showing the soul grace and mercy making excuses for one another and loving, bearing patiently with the faults of another as I bare patiently with your faults daily. Remember my little ones, the measure of mercy you show towards another, is the same measure of mercy that will be shown towards you. Do not hold anything in your heart towards another who offends you. Rather, opt to always think the best and even reason in your heart that they had good intentions despite their bad actions. Look to me for aid and forgive quickly, just as you have been forgiven.”

And that was the end of Jesus’ message.

Thank you family so much for your support, your prayers and your donations.

God bless you, until the next 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 you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
