The Goal Is In Sight
The Goal Is In Sight
The goal is in sight, and that is why you are in a fight. You must lift up the Standard of My Love, and move forwards together in faith, in the Power of My Might! Your battle is not with man, nor even with this earth. Your battle is waged in the heavens, and it is because you are all giving birth! No manner of weapon can overcome My Love, nor can My Righteous Standard ever be overcome by the plots of evil that come. I have stood for generations with My People, as a sign unto man, but who can see Me working throughout every land? I say, it is time to have My Heart, so that you can see what I am doing; so you will know what to do, as you navigate through the perilous avenues ahead of you. Be still, and know that I am at work! Nothing can alter what I have written concerning you and your generation! I know what I am doing, and even though the storm rages at the unfolding of My Golden Pages, nothing can prevent what must surely come to pass. I shall have My way! You shall stand in the fray, and you shall know that it is all about Me, as I hasten even more the Dawning Day! Give no place to doubt! Give no place to fear! Give no place to anger! Do not let bitterness draw near! Rise up firmly in your faith, and cleave one to another! Do not bite and devour one another, for surely, you are My Body, and you are sister and brother! My Body is rising up whole and complete in the earth, and she is Mighty, and she is True, all the way through! She can, and will stand, and she shall lead this generation into My promises, for she is the extension of My Hand, and is also at My Command! Children, It is time to stand, and to walk in Covenant with Me, and with each other together, in this hour. I am rising up in great, great power! Those the enemy rages, and threatens to attack in their stages, nothing can withstand the power of My People who choose to stand, hand in hand!
Reach towards the goal that I have set before you this day, and know that the path is growing clearer everyday. I shall lighten your way, as you choose to walk together day by day. You shall surely take your place, and you shall surely complete your race, as you each side by side, seek My Face. I have given you My Grace! It is time to hasten your pace and move, rejoicing in the revelation of the knowledge of My Son! I am coming to reveal even more to you as you walk out your paces with Me. I am coming to bring even greater liberty! I am here to set My people free! I am ushering in the knowledge of Me! I shall fill you and shall flood you completely, as you walk together into Me. Oh yes! Walk further into Me, and see the new place I am bringing you into, with Me! See the Life that I have reserved for you, and recognize the enemy that tries to prevent you! I shall lead you wisely through each assault, and you shall overcome, and you shall rule in the midst of it all! I have a table spread before you, that man does not know of, and as you walk together, you all shall feed, and you all shall flourish upon Me, and you all shall wage a good warfare triumphantly! I shall shout over you triumphantly! I shall shout over you mightily! Never fear, and never waver, but know that you walk in My favor! You shall overcome, as I have also overcome, and the entirety of My Will shall fully be done! - End of Prophecy.
John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]
1 John 4:4 Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.
Philippians 3:13 I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. 15 So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also.
Revelations 1:1 [THIS IS] the revelation of Jesus Christ [His unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to Him to disclose and make known to His bond servants certain things which must shortly and speedily come to pass in their entirety. And He sent and communicated it through His angel (messenger) to His bond servant John, 2 Who has testified to and vouched for all that he saw [in his visions], the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who reads aloud [in the assemblies] the word of this prophecy; and blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who hear [it read] and who keep themselves true to the things which are written in it [heeding them and laying them to heart], for the time [for them to be fulfilled] is near.
1 John 2:5 But he who keeps (treasures) His Word [who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety], truly in him has the love of and for God been perfected (completed, reached maturity). By this we may perceive (know, recognize, and be sure) that we are in Him:
2 Timothy 3: Begins with:
1 BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear].....
2 Timothy 3: Ends with:
14 But as for you, continue to hold to the things that you have learned and of which you are convinced, knowing from whom you learned [them], 15 And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. 16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action), 17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The various earthly training that we all go through comes from the daily lessons and from the demonic battles that prepare us all to become the vessels of the Lord's use. These can't be prevented. They are necessary for our growth and maturity. The fiery trials that we all go through are also described within the context of the rest of the chapter:
1 BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]. 2 For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. 3 [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good. 4 [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God. 5 For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them]. 6 For among them are those who worm their way into homes and captivate silly and weak-natured and spiritually dwarfed women, loaded down with [the burden of their] sins [and easily] swayed and led away by various evil desires and seductive impulses. 7 [These weak women will listen to anybody who will teach them]; they are forever inquiring and getting information, but are never able to arrive at a recognition and knowledge of the Truth. 8 Now just as Jannes and Jambres were hostile to and resisted Moses, so these men also are hostile to and oppose the Truth. They have depraved and distorted minds, and are reprobate and counterfeit and to be rejected as far as the faith is concerned. 9 But they will not get very far, for their rash folly will become obvious to everybody, as was that of those [magicians mentioned]. 10 Now you have closely observed and diligently followed my teaching, conduct, purpose in life, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, 11 Persecutions, sufferings--such as occurred to me at
, at Iconium, and
at Lystra, persecutions I endured, but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Indeed all who delight in piety and are determined to live a devoted and
godly life in Christ Jesus will meet with persecution [will be made to suffer
because of their religious stand]. 13 But wicked men and imposters will go on
from bad to worse, deceiving and leading astray others and being deceived and
led astray themselves. 14 But as for you, continue to hold to the things
that you have learned and of which you are convinced, knowing from whom you
learned [them], 15 And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and
been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and
give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ
Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ
Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. 16
Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for
instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and
discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living,
in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action), 17 So that the
man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped
for every good work. Antioch
1 Timothy 1:18 This charge and admonition I commit in trust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with prophetic intimations which I formerly received concerning you, so that inspired and aided by them you may wage the good warfare, 19 Holding fast to faith (that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence) and having a good (clear) conscience. By rejecting and thrusting from them [their conscience], some individuals have made shipwreck of their faith.
Romans 15:19 [Even as my preaching has been accompanied] with the power of signs and wonders, [and all of it] by the power of the Holy Spirit. [The result is] that starting from
and as far round as Illyricum, I have fully
preached the Gospel [faithfully executing, accomplishing, carrying out to the
full the good news] of Christ (the Messiah) in its entirety.
- Let us all move onwards, and upwards, together!!!
