"What you are giving birth into is confronting that which is left within you"
What you are giving birth into is confronting that which is left within you. You are contending for the faith to prevail. Nothing shall overcome you or overwhelm you if you set your face towards Me. You must not let the voice of apathy, or the voice of spiritual weakness, or the voice of old failures speak to you. You must allow faith, the faith I placed within you, to drive out all that remains to be unseated within you. What I have determined for you is true, for your scroll is ever before Me, and is destined only for you to do. Let Me arrange it all fully for you. You must defeat the death that contends within you.
Life is confronting the death that seeks to remain within you and to secure it's weakening foothold again. You must understand the process for liberty that is at work deep within. I am setting you free from every entanglement, from every deep seated root, and from every tendency that leads you astray from faith in Me. You are gaining the victory. You must let the rest be removed by Me so that you can walk victoriously and also unwaveringly in your thoughts before Me.
Do not look at yourself, or at your present situations, and at your inability to walk fully in me, and try to measure yourself from within. This causes you to reinforce the things that are leaving you, and it causes you to fear My ways, and when you do, you begin to walk back into your ways again. You must fortify your thoughts with Me. You must measure yourself by Me, by My Word, and by My Spirit that speaks to you from within. Lay your walls with Me to see clearly.
You are learning to build with My tools and not yours. You are learning to establish new principles based upon Me and not about your capability or inability. What I am able to do is greater than you. It is greater than you can perceive, or understand at this point. You have to establish faith in Me, and you must trust Me unquestionably. This is the root of your instability. Your lack of trust in Me, and your lack of trust that I can make you into what you shall be.
I have brought you to birth, and now you are warring for the things of eternal worth. But you cannot measure them by the world's worth, or ideals. Allow My scales that are within you to recalibrate your thinking, to reharmonize your soul to Mine, and let My Peace set your boundaries by which you will walk ahead. Trust in My measurements, and not in your perceptions of what you think you shall be. Leave the remodeling to Me. I am transforming you entirely!
Set your thoughts on the things above, and let My Peace grow like a dove. I am flowing within you at a gentle pace until you are whole. Then when you are totally whole, My Power will surely within you more fully unroll. You are on target for My Goal. Set your sights upon Mine. Sit down at My Table and feast on My Wine. I am creating a whole new design, and you will have to allow Me to finish what's left within you to redesign. When I am done, you shall break out in joy divine.
Your feet are upon My Paths. You are where I have placed you to be. You are seeking My Face, and that is why you have endured this fight for your race. You must not waver anymore, for this is the Hour of My Favor beginning to pour. I am moving things around you logistically, and you must wait until all things fall where they should be. Be still before Me, and rest. I shall move even more, and you shall understand what is left to be done, as you choose to trust in My Hand and in My Oversight of your life. Let go of the last remaining fears, and let Me have them, and shed no more tears. It is a time for joy, and for peace, for I am at work, and you shall live your life within Me.
I have abundance for you, but you cannot draw it out, or walk in it fully if you continue to look at what I am extracting from within you. Set your eyes on My things above. Set your face upon the mirror of My Word, and see those things more clearly from within My Pages, and you shall more fully understand that I have been healing you in stages. I am building you into a new work that is emerging from within you. Do not limit Me by what you think you see. Let Me build you fully.
Don't you realize that when I build something within you that is to be, that I use nothing from you, nothing from this life, and nothing from the past. I destroy all of that which was, and that which is, to now bring forth that which is to come? I have a future for you, and it includes a future and a hope, and a faith that is greater than yours. You must trade in your building materials for Mine. You must not try to help Me finish the building process that is left within you. You must yield to My ministrations, and allow Me to hasten you to your final destinations.
I am finishing your walls with My Peace. I shall not only give a full and complete new birth from within you, but I shall violently break forth from within you! I shall do great things that will amaze even you! I have set My Heart upon you, and nothing shall prevent Me from removing the last things from within you, only that which is within you can prevent Me. I want you to let go, and rest in Me, let Me finish you as you emerge in your new reality. You must see Me through My Reality. I am not like yours, and this is your struggle. You are trying to see everything through yours. You must allow Me to remove that and then you can see through Mine.
I have a rich wine to pour, and as you open more fully to Me, I shall pour it out liberally. Thankfulness shall break forth from within, and you shall not look upon things only as they have always been. No, for I shall transform all things into what shall be, and you shall drink My Wine of Sincerity with Me. You shall rise up with Joy, and shall walk with fortitude and with boldness into the new that is opening up before you. Set your feet fully on My Paths, and walk them knowing that you sit within My Higher Seat, and your vision shall be complete. Our faces shall fully meet, for you shall rule from Love's seat.
Isaiah 25:6 And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees--of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. 9 It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
Psalms 149:1-4 Hallelujah! Sing to God a brand-new song, praise him in the company of all who love him. Let all
celebrate their Sovereign Creator, 's
children exult in their King. Let them praise his name in dance; strike up the band and make great music! And why? Because God delights in his
people, festoons plain folk with salvation garlands! 5-9 Let true lovers break
out in praise, sing out from wherever they're sitting, Shout the high praises
of God, brandish their swords in the wild sword-dance— A portent of vengeance
on the God-defying nations, a signal that punishment's coming, Their kings chained
and hauled off to jail, their leaders behind bars for good, The judgment on them
carried out to the letter —and all who love God in the seat of honor! Hallelujah! TM Zion
1 Corinthians 15:54 And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory.
2 Timothy 1:10 [It is that purpose and grace] which He now has made known and has fully disclosed and made real [to us] through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, Who annulled death and made it of no effect and brought life and immortality (immunity from eternal death) to light through the Gospel.
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.
1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours.
Hebrews 3:1 SO THEN, brethren, consecrated and set apart for God, who share in the heavenly calling, [thoughtfully and attentively] consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith]. 2 [See how] faithful He was to Him Who appointed Him [Apostle and High Priest], as Moses was also faithful in the whole house [of God]. 3 Yet Jesus has been considered worthy of much greater honor and glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more honor than the house [itself]. 4 For [of course] every house is built and furnished by someone, but the Builder of all things and the Furnisher [of the entire equipment of all things] is God. 5 And Moses certainly was faithful in the administration of all God's house [but it was only] as a ministering servant. [In his entire ministry he was but] a testimony to the things which were to be spoken [the revelations to be given afterward in Christ]. 6 But Christ (the Messiah) was faithful over His [own Father's] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members] of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ]. 7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you will hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] and their provocation and embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness, 9 Where your fathers tried [My patience] and tested [My forbearance] and found I stood their test, and they saw My works for forty years. 10 And so I was provoked (displeased and sorely grieved) with that generation, and said, They always err and are led astray in their hearts, and they have not perceived or recognized My ways and become progressively better and more experimentally and intimately acquainted with them. 11 Accordingly, I swore in My wrath and indignation, They shall not enter into My rest. 12 [Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and desert or stand aloof from the living God. 13 But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him]. 14 For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end.
Hebrews 6:1 THEREFORE LET us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ (the Messiah), advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity. Let us not again be laying the foundation of repentance and abandonment of dead works (dead formalism) and of the faith [by which you turned] to God, 2 With teachings about purifying, the laying on of hands, the resurrection from the dead, and eternal judgment and punishment. [These are all matters of which you should have been fully aware long, long ago.] 3 If indeed God permits, we will [now] proceed [to advanced teaching].
Philippians 4:8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
Romans 14:17 [After all] the
is not a matter of
[getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that
state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] peace and joy in the
Holy Spirit. 18 He who serves Christ in this way is acceptable and pleasing to
God and is approved by men. kingdom
