I want to encourage you today – God sees you. He knows you deeply, and He hears your prayers. There is so much bad news being pumped into our society right now – many evil things are being revealed that are discouraging and could make us feel hopeless. But the Lord wants you to look past all of the garbage that you see and hear – for He is with you. He will guide you, and He will protect you and your family.
Don’t get wrapped up in the chaos – keep your eyes focused on the Lord, and you will find His peace that surpasses all understanding. Seek His perfect will, and He will guide you into your calling so you may serve Him well. Amen!
Isaiah 50:7 – “Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.”
While spending time with the Lord today, I was taken in the spirit, and I heard the Lord say, “What do you see?”
I looked around me, and I saw smoke and flames. I felt a massive void that penetrated deep within me. It felt lonely and without hope. I also felt abandoned. It was as if the flames of hell were closing in all around the earth.
I knew in my spirit that the void I felt was because Jesus wasn’t there.
I could see people walking around with a defeated look on their faces. It was difficult to watch. They dreaded their future because there was no hope for it to be good.
I wanted to shout, “Don’t give up hope! We are not doomed!” But the longer I stood there, the more defeated I felt.
Everything around me seemed to be broken – the people, the buildings, and the homes. It reminded me of the 1996 movie, “Escape From LA,” with Kurt Russell. Everything was dark and on fire. That is what I was seeing all around me in the spirit.
I felt the darkness closing in on me, and I knew I was running out of time – and I remembered there was hope, and His name is Jesus!
I shouted, “JESUS!”
And He was suddenly standing next to me. The darkness faded in His presence. He brought light into a place void of any hope.
With His presence came hope, joy, love, and peace.
He looked at me and said, “What do you see now?”
His presence and His glory brought light, and everything came alive!
I looked at the people around me – that is what caught my attention the most – for every single one of their faces had turned from defeat to hope. They knew something was different! His glory cannot be denied!
They began to shout with joy! Their faces lit up, and I watched as Jesus began ministering to them. Some were immediately healed from sickness; some were delivered from tormenting spirits – while others just needed a word of encouragement.
When all had encountered Jesus, He came to me and said, “The enemy would have you believe that there is no hope. He wants you to believe that I am not there – but he is wrong. He is the deceiver – don’t listen to his lies.
If you call on My name, I will come. My light will dispel the darkness, and the enemy and all of his wicked plans and schemes will be revealed in My light – My TRUTH will overcome the enemy.
My children – it is time to RISE UP!
I ask each one of you – What do you see?
For if you only see darkness – then the enemy has blinded you to My light. If you see Me and My light, then you are a part of My remnant – My chosen ones!
I invite all to be a part of My remnant.
If you see only darkness – look past it – for I am there.
Seek Me, and I will take the blinders off of your eyes, and your hope will be restored.
You will see Me – you will see what I am doing. And you will know you have nothing to fear. For I am coming to deliver My people. Just as We did for the Israelites in the time of Moses, We will again deliver you out of captivity from your enemy.
The enemy will be the one without any hope, for he is no match for Me and My Father.
My children – all is not lost. Look past what you see and hear in the natural – for it is lies – a smoke screen to confuse you.
Seek Me – and I will show you TRUTH, and I will set you free!”
John 8:32 says, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
If you are struggling, don’t lose hope! Instead, set your face like a flint towards the Lord – and He will guide you through it.
The more time I spend with Him, the more He reveals that we are in really dark days – and it will probably get worse before it gets better. The earth is groaning from the weight of the evil that is being done all around the world.
Earth has had enough; we have had enough; God has had enough – and He is coming to rescue us from this evil.
This dark time we are in is only for a season – it will turn around. God will reveal many truths before this is all over – and then we can move forward in preparation for the return of Christ.
Good days are ahead – so stay focused on the Lord. Keep praying, keep standing – and have faith! Remember – you were born and called for such a time as this! What an honor and blessing it is for us to be alive so we may witness the good things that are about to happen.
We praise You, Lord – and we thank You for your blessings and protection!
In His love,
