Looking Upon Him Who You Love
As I sat upon my couch late at night unable to sleep, I felt the drawing of the Lord in my spirit. I could see the heart of the Lord and He was looking for those who were searching for Him. I could feel His desire for those who thought of nothing else but of being with Him. My thoughts went to my own searching's, and to the need to press in even more than I currently do. I could feel the seriousness of the Spirit as I thought of these things. I could sense the urgency of His Spirit as I knew the time of relative peace was short and that we needed to draw close now. As I thought on this, I then felt the Lord begin to speak:
The Lord spoke to my heart, "Yes, the time of peace that is in the earth is going to draw to a close for a season, but even so, this you already know. But still there is much busyness and distractions that divert you and My people. It is not a time to be caught up in endless pursuits of your souls, but it is much more profitable for you to seek Me and to obtain the strengthening of your spirits, minds, and bodies for the days ahead. The enemy sees that you are walking in a higher level of understanding now, and there is now a great wrestling in the spirit realm for the attention of man. He knows that if he can get you distracted, or fighting, or diverted doing other things, then you will not gain the necessary wisdom and grace that I have for you at this time. There is a great war that has begun, and many will be swept up into it if they yield to the devices of the enemy. Look not to the things that would draw you away from Me, and do not partake of endless disputes, and listen not to the accusations from the enemy or the reviling's from man, for these shall increase as the war increases."
"What you give your attention to shall also be formed within you, as you think upon it and feed upon it. But if you truly seek Me as your life, and feed upon Me, then I shall be formed within you in even greater measures as you seek Me alone. As you learn of Me you shall increasingly become like Me, and shall walk in My Wisdom in a more deeper measure, and you shall also know the Council of heaven. I always stand before My Father, and as you commune with Me, you shall also commune with the Father, and we shall dwell with you richly. This is what the enemy does not want, for you to become one with us or to be transformed even further. He does not want My People to become My Habitation, so the war will attempt to divide from the heart. You must give your hearts completely to me, and trust not in your own wisdom or thoughts. Child, you must humble yourself and walk closely to Me in the days to come. Great is the danger of pride and of offenses in this battle. I came that you might have life and have it abundantly. But I did not desire that your eyes be given to the pleasures and cares of the world."
"Come closer, and know that I Am. You know Me, and that which you have understood in your knowledge of Me shall increase and shall grow even richer and shall flow from you to others as you go. I look upon the earth, and I long for them to understand Me, and My Word, but many do not treasure it nor pursuit it with all of their hearts. Shall this generation inquire of Me? Shall you fulfill your destiny that is written? You shall if you turn to Me and search out MY Face each day. If you walk in humility and in My love and in a sincere desire for My Life to be revealed to all you know. I must be your highest desire. Search your heart and see if there is any way within you that would draw you from Me, and choose to set your attention fully upon Me today! Do not go after the riches of men, nor the teachings of men, nor the activities that wear upon your spirit and drain you of vision. No, but ignite your vision even more! Set your heart upon Me, and walk in My Presence regularly. Train your thoughts to be stayed upon Me, and My Life will fill your hearts and minds even more. You will not even e drawn into the war, but you shall walk upon the heights with Me and know what to do with great clarity. This you must do, to walk victoriously all the way through!"
"There are assignments sent to distract. There are assignments meant to attract. There are assignments moving to combat. There are assignments launched to break pacts. Many dark assignments are already arrayed to break your union and your covenant with Me, and with each other in this hour. But you must walk above these things in My Peace, and you shall if you are diligent to watch with Me. Set your heart for action and be consumed only with Me and as you do, I shall cover you completely and I shall give you greater eyes to see. I shall show you every hidden strategy. I shall bring you through victoriously. I shall cause you to become great, and very strong, and wise in the land. You shall walk above and not below, you shall not enter in to the fray, or into the rage and the fear, but you shall see My Face even more clear. I am the Key to this Hour's Mystery. You shall not walk right if you do not keep Me within your sight. For I am doing a great work in the land. I shall see if the hearts are truly given to Me. Much of the events ahead shall be mistaken if you attempt to navigate through in your own understanding and wisdom; and what I have for you in the events shall not apprehended if you are not zealous to maintain your intimacy with Me. Many shall walk in error and in deep anxiety in the days ahead, because what I do shall not be measured correctly from trusting below. You must walk with Me to correctly know."
"I shall draw you even more in the day and in the night. I shall look to see if you are thinking of Me, if you are watching with Me. I shall know the way that your heart will go. I shall mark those that make Me their life in this hour, and I shall be faithful to those who walk in My Love and with My Peace and with those who shun the traps of strife. I am the Way that you shall walk in each day. I shall part open the way each day! Fear not your brother, but gather together, and strengthen your bonds. Know that My Love through you shall always respond! Yoke yourself to Me continually within your heart, make sure that you are fully in the faith, and trust Me without fail! You shall surely prevail! You shall not fail, nor shall you miss My Will, if you will each day faithfully climb My Holy Hill!"
"As you link yourself tightly to Me, you shall also link yourself tightly to My Body, and the harmony that we share in your hearts, will also spread everywhere. You shall break the enemies bonds, and you shall tread down the wicked serpents, and you shall undo all of the chains that ever seek to restrain. I shall arise as you arise! I shall stand as you stand! I shall meet with you and you shall meet with Me! Together you shall stand, and you shall overcome, and you shall be filled with Me gloriously."
