On Sunday December 16, 2018 at 2:11 pm the Lord told me to tell his people that “the dream is not dead“.
As the year draws to a close many of you are panicking and are filled with despair about the dream. You may not have accomplished much. The enemy is telling you that you have failed and the there is no hope. You did not do very well this year. It has been another year of wasted opportunities. Next year will be no different. The cycle will just continue to be repeated. That is a lie. The Lord Jesus says you must look with hope towards the future.
The Lord says the dream is not dead. You may have made mistakes. You may have acted in rebellion. You may have given up because of setbacks, delays, frustrations and barriers to realizing the dream. You may feel condemned. You may feel that the Lord has thrown you aside because you have not lived up to the expectation of others or your perception of His requirements. The Lord Jesus wants you to know that He has not thrown you aside. He never does. He said in Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.“. At an old age He can still do what He has promised you. Never allow haste to define your progress.
The Lord says, “the spirit of anxiety overtakes my people because they have allowed the world to dictate their life. They must have this or have that. They must get this or that at a certain age or else there will be dire consequences. None of this is founded in the Word of truth; the Bible.
All examples of people who have done extraordinary things in their life have happened not when it was convenient or good. Women gave birth at an old age. Without the loving care of a doctor overseeing the process. Why? I waited until it was time for My purpose to be fulfilled. When it was impossible for them to accomplish it in their own strength. (Please read Genesis 21 and Luke 1).
Satan cannot stop what I have prophesied. He may attempt to frustrate the process but he has never stopped my plans.
Examine everything I have done. Not one of them has allowed humans to take credit. According to Isaiah 42:8 “I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols”.
Anything you got through your efforts alone was done of you own free will. I was not in it. When you face overwhelming odds that is when I go before you to lead. I never follow. I lead at all times.
“The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; So their King goes on before them, The Lord at their head.”
Micah 2:13, Amplified
Elizabeth and Zechariah received a child at a very old age. After they could not naturally bear a child. Samson’s mother and Hanna were barren. Only when it was time for My will to be accomplished in the earth did they bear children. The promise came first then many others followed. David and Joseph received the promise they they would become king over their people at a very young age. They were tested and refined through fiery process for years before they received the promise. Please research the Word it took more than a decade before these boys were ready to rule. I took shepherds and made them prophets. Cowards became judges over nations. Fierce warriors in battle.
All of these were written as an example. They were written for your benefit. All of these must be taken as they were written. They are not fabricated stories. They are truths.
Truths that reminds you to be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6-7). Never feel that you have failed and there is never a second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh chance. There are always a lot of chances. Believe I am able to do this.
The angels are sent to help you. Rest in the assurance that ALL, not somethings, work out for good.
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
Delays, frustrations, setbacks and hold ups are all designed to build your character. They teach you to yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Only when you understand that He must lead can you receive all I have for you
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Yes! You may have received success as defined by the world; the cars, the houses, the businesses, lots of money, the solid marriage. All the things that allow you to enjoy this life. Know that there is so much more. Far more!
Build treasures in this life and the life to come. Seek the building of the Kingdom and all things shall be added to you. All your needs will be satisfied.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
As you plan for the New Year, one objective should be to yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit. He is here to fulfill the blueprint of heaven for your life. That should be the number one priority for the New Year and the new you. Trust God to lift you up in due season.”
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
