A Heart for Jesus

A love for God

Time is quickly passing and my children rarely listen. They fail to hearken to me and to hear my voice. They rise and go about their daily busy lives never giving me a thought. I sit, I wait, I watch, but they do not take the time to think or ponder on me or my word.

Time is getting short. What are my children waiting for? Are you certain for your tomorrow? Do you feel safe in your future? Are you so content and secure in your life that I am not needed?

Wisdom is not sought after. Knowledge of me is not sought for.  For most I am just a passing thought. On Sundays they adorn my pews. They raise their self-righteous hands and sing songs of praise with their lips, but I am far from their hearts. They do not want me as I desire to be wanted. They use me for times of trouble. They wear me as a badge to display for others to see, but at home their badge is nowhere to be found.

Where are you, my children? Where am I in your life? Where do I fit in? Do I fit in?

As your God, shouldn’t I do more than just fit in? As the lover and creator of your very essence, shouldn’t I have priority in your life? Don’t you realize that your life is mine and I can call you home whenever I choose? Do you believe that tomorrow is yours to live? Who told you that? Let me hear the scripture you stand on for your very life. Recite it to me. Bring it to my remembrance. Can you? Will you?

Oh, my children, I miss you! I remember with joy the day you were born into my kingdom. Your love, your joy, your enthusiasm made me smile and brought me laughter birthed from the joy and the pleasure of your love for me. But now my soul aches. It longs for fellowship with you, my children, for you are far off and you rarely enter my presence. Like a parent who longs to hear from her child who is far away, so I long to hear from you daily. Oh how I long with such intense desire to hear from you! My soul aches for you. Do you care? Do you really love me? What does your love for me mean to you? What have you given to nourish our love? How important is our relationship to you? As you long for the love of others whom you love, so I long for you with even greater intensity. Oh how my soul longs for you!

I see the future. I know what is ahead. You are not ready. You are not prepared. There is so much to do. Time is getting short. Time is running out. You think you have tomorrow, but tomorrow is not what you think it is going to be. I see what is coming. I know what is here.  I look at you, my children and I grieve deeply within the very essence of all that I am. You are not ready! You live your life like all is well. It is not! Yet, you don’t see it. Your discernment is dull. You are blended with the world. You should be a light that shines so brightly that those in the darkness run to you and look to you to find the answers they cannot find. To find the hope, the love, the shelter that they do not have. They are wanderers and they are blinded. The world is dark. They look for the lights but they cannot find them for the lights in this world that should be shining brightly and guiding the paths for those that are lost, shines so dimly that they are barely seen.

What makes your light shine brighter? Can you do this on your own? Can a candle light itself? Can it continue to shine where there is no breath of life? If you take away its oxygen, its life source, you take away its life. Though it is still a candle it is not producing the light needed for those around.

I am your oxygen! I am your light source! The enemy is working hard at keeping you from me and he is succeeding. For you are barely flickering.

Oh, my children, come back to me. Remember your first love. Oh how you rejoiced over me! Rejoice over me again! Stir yourself up by spending time with me daily. Learn to listen and to hear my voice as I speak to you. Put aside the less important things. Put me first. Oh how I miss you, my children!

People are dying. Everywhere, people are dying. I am losing them one by one. As the church goes about their day doing the things that they do, people are dying. My soul is grieved beyond comfort as the people are dying.  My people come to church, they lift their hands in praise and worship to me after having lived their weekly life as they choose. They go about their days oblivious to the world around them. Every day they pass by people who are bound for hell for all eternity and they never say a word. They never give them hope. They are filled with power, yet powerless. Like a car full of gas with no key. Powerless. When will my people wake up to all that they are and all that they are called to be? When will they walk in all that I have for them and for this dying world? I look around, I see the pain, I hear the cries, I feel the suffering. I see it all and in the midst of all the pain, suffering, and death I see my children walking around with blinded eyes and a smile on their face because their little corner of the world is ok. They have their home, they have their food, they have their clothing, they have their family, they have their bible, they have their Sunday school, they have their faithful preacher, yes, all is good to them. But that is not what I see. All is not good! Death is everywhere! I am coming soon and even though this is a day my children are looking forward to with great anticipation, it is a horrible day. For many will be lost forever. My children wonder why I tarry. Why am I taking so long to return? Oh, just look around! Take the blinders off! People are dying! They are lost! And the ones with the answers remain silent. Caught up in their own little worlds. I hear my people say, “What can I do?” Reach out! Reach out! Take a chance! Will you meet rejection and persecution? Yes, at times, but aren’t souls worth it?  Oh, stop tearing one another down! Stop with the petty grievances. Grow up! The enemy is playing with you! You are his pet toys as he causes diffractions among you and then stands back and watches you walk  into the waves he creates and then laughs at his success. Oh, if my people would just wake up and live the life they should be living. If they would just walk in the plans that I created for them even before they were born. If they would read my word and understand my word and walk in my word. All my promises are good! So good! Yet most leave them laying on a shelf, pretty to look at, but powerless to change. Like a man dying of thirst who places the pitcher of water on the shelf and admires the crystal the life-saving water is contained in, so is my word in the hands of my people.

Oh, my children, you are meant to be so much more than what you are! Your lives are so busy, and yet so empty. Void of many of the things that truly matter. Eternal things. The enemy has you blinded! You are so busy with temporary things that bring temporary satisfaction. The things eternal are lost at your feet.  If you would gather together and lift one another up, encourage each other to do good works, bind together as one, walk in my promises as you apply them to your life, then your eyes would be opened and you would see.   You would truly know and understand that this world is full of hurting and dying people. People who will be lost forever. Yes, you have a wonderful home to come to in the course of time. A beautiful home prepared for my children who love me, obey me, and serve me. But what about the others? Their eternal home is one of pain, suffering, and torment to such a degree that you cannot even imagine. Why do you not care? Don’t tell me you care when you pass these people by each day! Every opportunity you have to do good, you should be doing! But, you are too busy. You don’t have time to even pass on a smile or a hello. You don’t have time to have a conversation with the person stuck in line next to you, you don’t have time for the cashier, the food attendant, the doctor, the nurse, the neighbor, and so many other people you come in contact with as you go about your busy days. And for so many, even if you did have time, you still wouldn’t speak. For you have been torn down and broken not just by people outside the church, but mostly by those within the church. You are discouraged because the encouragers remain silent. Fear, like a snake, slithers among you down at your feet and affects your walk. So many times I say do not fear, yet, you fear. You allow fear to control your actions and put a halt to opportunities. But I have not given you this spirit of fear, so why do you so readily receive it and place it over and above all my promises? Why? I have placed you so far above all these things and that defeated enemy should remain under your feet. He should not be slithering around your feet! Why do you allow the enemy access when I have defeated him and handed the victory of that defeat over to you!

Oh, my children, my children, I love you! I see your chains, I see your thorns, I see your walls. You are captives that have been set free. You are captives by your own choosing. Turn aside from your captivity, look into my word and my promises. My promises are good! They are alive and active! They are available for you! They are treasures that are of more value to you than any earthly treasure you will ever find! Turn aside and look!

I am waiting and I am watching. I long to see you walk in all that I have for you. And everything I have is yours! I love you, my dear children. I love you!

Wake up my people! Wake up, wake up, wake up! The time is drawing near. Time for renewal and revival like never before seen in this generation. Wake up and be a part of what I am about to do before you! I desire that you hunger and thirst after me, but your hunger and thirst tends to go after the things of this world. To hunger and thirst for me requires that you spend time with me. Get to know me. Sunday morning church is not enough. Daily you need me. Daily drink of me. Daily come into my presence. Daily! Do not think that you will live the victorious life I have for you when you treat my word as a weekly snack. My word must fill you to overflowing. Stop wasting the time I have allotted you here on this earth, for it will never be returned to you. Now is the time!

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up, I say! Time is drawing near. I desire to do great and mighty works among you, but your hunger does not match my desire. When will you care enough to put the things aside that consume your time and your energy and give that time and energy to me? People are dying! Do not believe that you will be held guiltless when you have the keys to their freedom and deliverance held tightly in your hands yet you refuse to do anything about it. The enemy has blinded you and you have allowed it! Wake up! Wake up my people, wake up! There is much turbulence on the horizon. Only my people who stand firm in my word and in their authority can calm it. Otherwise, you and many others will be destroyed unnecessarily. This will be to your guilt because you know the truth but refuse to live it. Many people in foreign countries have seen more of my mighty works that you have and their resources are far less. Many don’t have access to my word as you have, yet their faith, love, and dedication to me is much greater than yours! Wake up! There is work to be done. Time is running out. The keys to understanding lie within the words of my book that are so readily available to you. Get wisdom.

The time for fasting is here. You must crucify the flesh and the desires within. Fasting weakens the flesh and when you are weak, I am strong. Wake up and get moving for time is running out and people everywhere need me. Look around. Do you see people? They need me.  People outside the walls of the church as well as the people within the walls of the church, need me! When you bind together as one, when you put aside differences, pettiness, egos, and pride; when you esteem your brothers and sisters above yourselves and get rid of all gossip and idle talk. When your words lift up and edify others and come from pureness of hearts that truly love, then miracles will begin to happen. Lives will be transformed, people will be saved, and sickness and disease will flee. You want to see my glory? Start living for me and not self. Start living for others, and not just those within the circle of your trusted friends and family. Reach out! Get uncomfortable! Learn of me and trust in me. This requires much, much more than Sundays. Wake up, my people, wake up!

I am so in love with you. Are you in love with me? How often do you think of me? How often do you converse with me? How often do you come to me without any needs, but just to love on me? Are you in love with me? I am so in love with you. You are truly the apple of my eye and my thoughts are continually on you. I long for you and your fellowship. Daily I wait. Daily I wait. Daily, I wait. Do you really love me? I really love you.
