Your personal ‘calling’ does not necessarily equate acceptance. Living a life of obedience and surrender to the Lord does not mean you are easily welcomed, well liked, or loved by all. You can be in the perfect will of God and be rejected by men.
As time progresses and the pathway to righteousness and following the Lord becomes narrower, it will be more consequential that we adhere to the mandate that we humble ourselves and take up our cross – on the daily! Our temporary sufferings are unto the Lord, that He, the Lamb, may receive the reward for His suffering. When we are dead to self, we can more readily and willingly follow the Lamb.
If religion nailed Jesus to the cross, so will our adversary be. Many people despised and rejected Him, but remember religion crucified Him. People will turn against you; brother, sister, father, and mother – and they will think they are justified in “truth” ; a divide is coming within the Body, your very own “sisters and brothers ‘in the Lord’” and the only way to survive the sword is to be cloaked in humility.
“Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for your reward in heaven is great [absolutely inexhaustible]; for their fathers used to treat the prophets in the same way.” Luke 6:22-23 AMP
“And he who does not take his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me] is not worthy of Me.” Matthew 10:38 AMP
““The one who listens to you listens to Me; and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and the one who rejects Me rejects Him [My heavenly Father] who sent Me.”” Luke 10:16 AMP
“He was despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and pain and acquainted with grief; And like One from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or esteem Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth [to complain or defend Himself]; Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before her shearers, So He did not open His mouth.” Isaiah 53:3, 7 AMP
Re-release of a prophetic dream 7.7.20
Repentance is not a dirty word.
But first let me explain I have been a vivid dreamer since I could remember. I often communicated warning dreams unknowingly even as a small child. I was also more comfortable with the unseen realm than the earthly realm and longed to be with my Creator. At this point in my life -though I am happy to answer questions and share my testimony I no longer have the time to explain myself or dilute and code messages. Haven’t we had enough of a ‘watered down’ gospel after all? After years and years of seeing my dreams and visions come to pass I will say I’m just the messenger – and even if one person is impacted by the message than I have succeeded, “I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.” Luke 15:7 AMP
I awoke from a really intense dream last night. The kind of dream that Isaiah 5:20 writes “What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” NLT
The actual full details I don’t feel to explain to you but the message of dream is of upmost importance. In the dream the streets and buildings were full of people – for the protest and conviction of “wrong doers” or “the accused”. After the masses would convict those who had committed very minor offenses and shed blood on their behalf (cut them with knives) there was another grouping of people who lined up after who had more evil offenses & wickedness of heart, but they however were allowed to go free with no bloodshed.
Does this sound familiar?! This is a spirit of religion. Just like the one that killed Jesus – except He had NO offense in him！
There were fires, ashes and crowds of people high and low. There was a dominant religious influence from a certain church. After those who were most wicked and not convicted were free, I could not contain the fire in me any longer. The dream ended with me preaching a message of repentance and raising my voice as loud as I could among thousands.
Repentance is not a dirty word. Repentance means to be restored to the pent house. Literally means to come up to a higher way of thinking. There is a more excellent way… When your mind is changed your behavior will follow.
I believe all of Heaven rejoices when we repent because it’s an act of our free will. And the dedication in changing your mind sometimes requires hard work. God’s intention and heart is not to punish you, or dominate you under His thumb. Quite the opposite really – what other King GIVES you dominion to rule and reign with Him? There is none like Jehovah!
We are entering a time where mass confusion is prevalent. Where good is called evil and evil is called good. You can not get by in the times to come by following the majority. This is not a fear message, however a “change your mind message”. You can still live in peace when there are storms around you! You have to be close to Jesus, you need the Holy Spirit. You need the Lord God as your defender and righteous judge. You need the gift of discernment as never before. Pray that the scales be removed from your eyes, and for ears to hear what the Spirit would say to the church. Raise your voice in Spirit and in Truth. Prepare the way for our coming King!
“Repent [change your inner self–your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 3:2 AMP
“The realm of heaven’s kingdom is about to appear—so you’d better keep turning away from evil and turn back to God!”
Matthew 3:2 TPT
