New Challenges Ahead
On the morning of October 22, 2022, at 4:00 AM, I spoke to the Lord and said, "Good morning, Lord. Thank You for helping me get work done on the Ocean building. It was challenging for me." (Note: The Ocean building is our Rock Revival Center #2 located in Ocean City, WA.)
The Lord said, "I have many new challenges for you. I know you enjoy a challenge, for you have never shied away from productive, hard work.
"Government challenges are mostly between good and evil, right and wrong. Greed and the lust for power and control drive many to compromise. So many good people have been willing to make a deal with the devil in order to better position themselves, but instead have poisoned themselves. Many in high positions have someone else pulling their strings because of blackmail.
"I am cleaning house, or should I say, 'cleaning the House.' I am bringing back an emphasis on the principles that are foundational, such as integrity and honesty. I will lead leaders that want to be led. Wisdom desires to be led by the Source.
"Everything you see happening – rising inflation, issues and disputes over abortion, rising gas prices, foreign trade, talk of wars or rumors of war, power struggles over territory, and perverted teaching around identity and sex – it's all part of the enemy's scheme.
President Trump Will Return
"President Trump will return – not as a god to be worshiped, but as My choice for the presidency. He will help turn things around and rebuild America with My Kingdom economy...on Earth as it is in Heaven. I will put a much stronger team around him. Some will be built-up from the inside and others who have been prepared will be brought in to assist and strengthen.
"I will raise up a mighty army to defeat the dragon (the wayward of China) and to call My people higher in this mighty battle that can only be won by My Spirit," said the Lord.
The Good Fight of Faith
"I am certain of My plans to make all things new. Some things must be torn down in order that I may build them up right."
"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven...a time to break down, and a time to build up...a time to tear, and a time to sew..." (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 3, 7 NKJV)
The Lord said, "It's time My people learn to enjoy the good fight of faith."
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses." (1 Timothy 6:12 NKJV)
Choose Your Battles Wisely
"So many are being drained by fighting the wrong things. Don't fight the wrong battles! Choose your battles wisely. Being distracted by fighting in the wrong arena is how the enemy tricks people into feeling a sense of success while diverting the focus from My primary objective. (Photo via Piqsels)
The Big Picture
"Tell My people to see the big picture. Each person's unique assignment is like a framed canvas where I say, 'Okay, now let's paint!'
"Stay inside My framework or infrastructure. Don't paint outside the canvas. Work with Me so you can stay inside the frame that I lay out. As I add more revelation, you will have a clearer picture. I am always creating.
Strength in Development
"Heaven's wisdom is made available to the childlike – those who are fully persuaded."
"But wisdom is justified by all her children." (Luke 7:35 NKJV)
The Lord said, "Strength in development varies based on many factors, much like faith being a muscle. Does everyone look the same in the gym? Some are weak and some are strong. Some are big and weak; some are small and strong. Some are flexible and some are stiff. Some are disproportionate and some are well-rounded and balanced. I choose based on the heart. I choose based on the level of willingness. I choose based on testing, like metal in a fire."
"[T]hat the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 1:7 NKJV)
"I always test before I graduate an individual. I graciously consider the potential and the progress of each one. How a person works with others is a factor; how a person handles and resolves conflict is another. Do they avoid challenges or delight in facing them? Is the person teachable or do they think they know everything?
"Physical strength and personal health are also a factor. If a person is willing but not prepared or capable, what good would that do for a job that requires strength and sustainability? Again, I am looking for workers to accomplish My purposes on Earth as it is in Heaven.
"My main goal is built around love, because I desire that none [should] perish, but that all [would] find eternal life in Me. Salvation is still the greatest miracle. I came to offer salvation, and every nation needs this gift."
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16 NKJV)
Raising Up Soul Winners
The Lord said, "You are going to win souls all over the world and teach others to be soul winners as well."
"...he who wins souls is wise." (Proverbs 11:30 NKJV)
"This is My main assignment for you: Offer the truth to as many as will hear, and inspire people everywhere to enjoy the process of learning to trust Me, the Lord God Almighty. When you help people to be victorious in their thinking, you will assist them in becoming victorious in their journey. This is what My abundance is all about. (Photo via Unsplash)
"Discipleship happens naturally, when you have been well disciplined. Be compelled with My compassion to raise up other young leaders to go the required distance. I need more fathers that will raise up sons and daughters – not to compete with them but to help complete them! Champion them to hear and obey Me, training them to become champions. Rewards are often thought of as to be expected. It's good to have expectations, but not entitlements; entitlements are entanglements. I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me."
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)
Blessed Are Those Who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness
The Lord said, "Those who hunger are fed. Those who thirst for righteousness will drink of My living water."
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." (Matthew 5:6 NKJV)
"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." (John 7:38 NKJV)
"This is where satisfaction comes from. Drink of My living water – the Holy Spirit – or you will feel like something is missing."
"[F]or John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit..." (Acts 1:5 NKJV)
Those Who Press in Will Win
"I have called you as a king to sit with kings.
"Move with Heaven and Heaven will move with you and be your home. Be willing to take time for those who are weak and build up as many as I entrust to you...for as long as I lead. Be ready to bend with the wind of My will so you do not break or lose heart. Keep focused on seeking My face so that My blessings do not distract you from this intimacy. Don't drift away, but stay close each day.
"Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away." (Hebrews 2:1 NKJV)
"Those who press in will win. Keep this understanding when the enemy tries to get your focus on lesser things. Then come to Me for more lessons so that I can impart to you My wisdom and download My plans, like a blueprint for success.
"My words of life flow through you like a river. My love for you is like a never-ending waterfall on a warm summer day.
"There is one Body and many members – all with their own unique functions. Each part is significant – each person is precious!"
