ABOUT THESE PROPHECIES
Clare operates in the gift of prophecy. In 1 Corinthians 14:1 it states, “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.” Now we are living, and supposed to be obeying, God’s instructions in the New Testament. Although some believe that spiritual gifts such as prophecies have been done away with, this is man’s thinking and not God’s. God has not changed His covenant. We are still living in the era of the New Covenant – which is also called the New Testament. Please understand that your first commitment should be to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word as written in the Bible – especially the New Testament.
As always, all prophecy needs to be tested against the Bible. However, if the prophecy lines up with the Bible, then we are expected to obey it. Currently, God does not use prophecies to introduce new doctrines. They are used to reinforce what God has already given to us in the Bible. God also uses them to give us individual warnings of future events that will affect us: in this case, the Rapture, which is soon to happen.
Just like in the Old Testament, God uses prophets in the New Testament times of which we are currently in. The book of Acts, which is in the New Testament, mentions some of the prophets such as Judas and Silas (Acts 15:32) and Agabus (Acts 21:21) and there were others. The ministry of prophets is also mentioned in New Testament times in 1 Corinthians 12:28 and 14:1,29,32,37 as well as in Ephesians 2:20, 3:5, and 4:11.
Jesus chooses prophets to work for Him on Earth. Among other things, Jesus uses prophecies and prophets to communicate His desires to His children. The Bible itself was written prophetically through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
As it says in 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21, “Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good.” And the way to test the messages is to compare it’s content to what the Bible says.
Although the author (and close friends) have tested these messages to make sure they are in agreement to what the Bible says, you individually must also test these messages, yourself, to the Bible. And, if they are consistent with the Bible, then God expects that you will take them to heart and obey His instructions.

(Clare) Tonight, the Lord has given me more instruction for the time that we’re left to be here. He had me begin by reading Isaiah, several chapters in the beginning, and refreshing my memory. After that, He began:
(Jesus) “My Dove, even as I dealt with the kingdom of Israel, so shall I deal with this wicked, wicked world. And yet, even as you have read about the remnant, so shall I save a people for Myself. People who have been through the fire and been found worthy escaping the wrath I have poured out upon all nations. Your children shall be among them, I make this promise to you for your fidelity, even to the point of being alienated from them for your belief. There is still much spirituality in them and I shall increase it and modify even their DNA to be a match more to mine. You shall see My Glory over them, and they will walk in My ways all the days of their life and you shall find much pleasure in them. What was broken in your heart, I Myself shall mend, anoint and bring forth in the beauty of holiness.
“Shall I not also have mercy, on the sons of My Bride? Yes, they too will shine like silver refined in the fire. Many who seemed hopeless will come forth from the refiner’s fire with My Glory on their faces. So take heart, have courage; they too will rise from their soul deadened state.”
He was talking about someone else there, that I could share with them. And I left this I in the message for you, because I truly believe the Lord intends that ALL His Brides should have this confidence, that He is working on their behalf to bring their children into the Kingdom. So, please, take these words unto your own heart, as well.
“As many have taken My previous words to heart, I am continuing on. Oh, how proud I am of My Faithful little ones who have taken My words to heart! I will continue to bless and instruct until that very day.”
Okay, Lord – but I’m not asking when.
“And I’m not telling, either. Some things are better left unsaid.”
You mean, like the word ‘soon?’
“Exactly. I’m just playing with you. But I do want to say that as things near the end, that is the end of your time here on Earth, it will get more and more intense. Yet, I will be with you to protect, nurture and strengthen. The birth pangs will be closer together. Just hang on, we’re bursting through!
“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual; and as things heat up, Christians will find themselves more and more challenged in their faith. More attacks against the Faith and hope are on the way.”
I wanted to take an aside here, and tell you that Ezekiel really got slammed with that today. I mean, just mercilessly slammed today with all these voices. And another dear friend, too. We just came to the conclusion that, since these demons are liars, then everything opposite of what they said is true. We managed to get through that. But there are going to be attacks that just come out of nowhere – to really try our faith and our hope.
“Heads up! You know what I have told you, I’ve confirmed it many, many times. I want you to hold onto that for dear life and don’t question it, no matter what’s going on around you, hold on to it.”
There, He’s referring to the Rapture and Miami.
“Mind you, the jewels in your crown will be added daily.”
Oh, I know what that means, Lord. Crowns mean suffering and overcoming it.
“Don’t be dismayed by attitudes of scorn and contempt – work with them. Some are holding it down just under the surface, as you have seen – just for the sake of civility. And when it breaks forth, do not take it personally. They are weak and being used by the enemy to try and undermine and confuse you.
“Don’t allow it, My Dove. Come to Me and be strengthened. Be gentle with them and restore them to the right path.
“Mainly in this time preceding My coming for you, I am adding gems to your crowns, all of you. You are going from glory to glory, and in the meantime, your challenges and sufferings I shall take as fast offerings for the conversion of more and more souls.
“Scorn, contempt and persecution await all My faithful Christians. How can I reward unless trials are passed successfully? And in the meantime, teachings will come forth that will assist those left behind. All serves a purpose, every little thing. Take it as a test of virtue, another fast offering and this will keep your attitude pure and grateful. And keep you from bitterness.
“What is going on behind the scenes in this country is indeed terrible. You have seen glimmers here and there, (like the legalization of beheading in 1996 in Georgia) but the groundwork is continuing to be laid for the great persecution. You are not going to be around for this, so calm yourself. But you will see it clearly coming on the horizon and I don’t want you to be frightened.”
I confess Lord, I’ve already reacted with fright.
“I want to say this again: you are not going to be beheaded, you will not be here for that. I don’t ever want to have to tell you that again. I want you to rest in that. But for those who are here, I will be with them and they may suffer fear for a short time. My promise is that, in the blink of an eye, they will be with Me in Heaven, greeted with cheering in the Heavenly courts. So many martyrs suffered no pain because I took it upon Myself on the Cross. Yes, even the horrors of martyrdom I took upon Myself, to relieve those who were too weak. Mercy is My nature, and to each I grant the courage they need. They need not face death alone, I will be with them.”
Lord…I think I’m a coward.
“I think you are beautiful. You have suffered many martyrdoms of a different sort. Don’t kid yourself – what you suffered for Me was equally as valid. Especially when you met your persecutors with forgiveness and charity.
“Intimacy with Me is the key to sanity. Compromise with the world opens the door to satan and his demons. When you sin, even in the little things, the little foxes spoil the vine, the door is squeezed open for one skinny demon to enter, then the door widens and sin upon sin opens the door wider yet. That is why you must resist at the very first sign of compromise. If you allow things to escalate or put off repairing the breach, you only allow things to build to a bigger head, requiring more and more painful intervention and the ripples spread throughout the entire body. This is why, My Children, you must resist the enemy at the start. The old adage, ‘A stitch in time, saves nine,’ is good to remember.
“Beware of serious misunderstandings among brethren. Gossip, implication, slurs, impatience, interpreting motives to their detriment, downgrading and the like will separate brethren and make way for each to be isolated from one another. An isolated sheep in the forest, as you know, is a dead sheep. Be ever so vigilant to correct the early signs of misunderstanding. More patience, more love, more humility; these are the tools of healing you must always keep in readiness.”
And I just want to say here, that Ezekiel and I have really been witnesses of what the demons do when they twist words and turn things around, they’re not heard for what they were intended. The Lord basically is saying the enemy is on the march, with more misunderstandings for people in relationships. So, we have to really, really pay attention to what’s going on with people in our lives.
I just went to my Rhema box. It’s a tupperware shoe box with index cards that have holy quotes – I have over 1,000 of them I’ve kept over the years. I pulled one, and it said, “Nothing, no matter how little, that is suffered for God’s sake, can pass without merit in the sight of God. Be prepared to fight if you desire to gain the victory. Without fighting, you cannot obtain the Crown of Patience.” And here, the Lord is talking about adding jewels to our crown.
“You will all be tested in charity and forgiveness. Open your hearts wide for sinners and especially the ones I send you. Embrace them with love and forgiveness, pray for their salvation. Truly, they are pitiable. Many of these I send you because they have no one else to pray for them on this Earth. But I know you will, so they come across your path. Don’t let me down Dear Ones, I need prayers for the difficult personalities in your lives.”
You know, as an aside on that, I’ve found that not only does it turn their hearts in many situations, but WE increase in patience and virtue and humility. And that’s priceless – just priceless!
“I am blocking much unpleasantness in your lives, lest you become discouraged. But as you grow in intimacy, I will allow more tests of virtue. Nonetheless, it will never be more than you can handle. All in all, I am giving you a heads up that tensions are going to increase in your lives, challenges will present themselves, but you are not to fear. Trust in Me with your whole hearts, lean not on your own understanding, and I will direct your paths and deliver you. I love each and every one of you. You are My Beautiful Brides and how I long to take your hand and make you My very own for eternity.
“Do not for one moment imagine that these instructions are because you will be here much longer – no, they are not. Rather, I want to stud your crowns with more gems while you, at the same time, are praying for more souls to come into the Kingdom, and your prayers I will answer. We are a team, working together. The fruits will be far beyond your expectations. Much I keep hidden from you to safeguard your humility.”
I just want to add one thing to this message, and that is when I was talking about “What Does the Bride of Christ Look Like?” I went into some more detail that she wears a crown of scorn and contempt, the same way the Lord wore a crown of scorn and contempt. And that’s one way you can really, really recognize an authentic Bride of Christ – that she has suffered through scorn and contempt and not become bitter, but still loving and praying for those who have tried and tested her.
The Lord bless you. And, let’s keep each other in prayer as these tests come. I’ve already seen some of these tests in the last day or so, and I’ve heard about them from other people. So, this is really a head’s up from the Lord that the enemy is increasing the challenges that lie ahead of us, even though the Lord Himself is protecting us from much of it.
Baptize Them In My Love
July 16th, 2015
Just a little background on what happened before I came into prayer tonight.
Tonight, in the very sweet presence of the Lord, as I worshiped Him and He imparted His longing for Me to my heart and the sweet Graces He gives me, He took my hands and placed them over His Heart. He does this many times, to bring me confidence in His true presence more quickly.
I am always reminded of something He once told me, “Place your hands upon My Heart, and My Love will do the rest.” Oh, the pure sweetness of that exchange!
Well, I became hungry and went to make a sandwich. Then, I had a longing for some chocolate…uh, oh….we had a cream pie left over from the holiday weekend. I thought to myself, ‘Oh, I really need to be denying myself – things are so tense right now in the world.’
But alas, I just couldn’t do it. I had a few bites and came to prayer feeling a wee bit condemned, like my prayers would be worthless without that sacrifice of the chocolate cream pie. I mused to myself, ‘Whatever happened to those wonderful days when I was so detached from the pleasures of the palette and food? I could fast for six days and still take care of my family and duties. Plus, for the sake of vanity, I was wonderfully slender.’ This was my state of mind when I came back into prayer; part of me was hiding behind my failure of self-control – the other part eager to be with My Jesus again.
He began…“Do what you can, in fasting. Don’t come under condemnation for a piece of pie. I know your body’s chemistry right now better than you do and I’m not putting any restraints on you other than to love, first. That doesn’t mean ignore the posts in the morning, it means pay close attention to the promptings of Holy Spirit, and always do what He wants, in His order.
“The devils will use every little thing to cause disillusionment, discouragement, especially in yourself. Condemnation, to cause you to be less effective. For instance, when you come under condemnation, and you take the bait, the enemy will tell you, ‘No use to pray now – you just blew it and God won’t hear your prayer’. Like… He would have, if you’d persevered in fasting?
“Lies and half-truths. I appreciate your fast offerings, but I also know your limits better than you do. And when the enemy inspires you to go further into a fast offering than you can handle with My grace, he will wait for you to fall and then slap you down with condemnation, making you want to abandon prayer – because, after all… you failed and they’ve become worthless. May I say, your prayers are NEVER worthless in these situations? Well, they are not. So, don’t allow the enemy to lie to you.
“I am so much more concerned about your love for your brother than I am about any fast offering. Many have fooled themselves by taking on extraordinary fasts, and yet treating their brother with contempt. Their fasts were worthless. That is nothing but a show of pride in what they can achieve and how spiritual they are, when in fact, ‘I never knew them.’”
And the other Scripture that comes along and goes with this as He was speaking, was quickened to me:
“Do not be full of judgement because others cannot fast as you do. For I have come to find fruit on My tree and found none. I looked for charity, humility, pure motive and found pride, arrogance and judgement.
“See to yourself that you pass by no opportunity to do a kindness to one who is in need. Comfort the destitute, the mourning, the rejected and you will call to Me and I will swiftly manifest at your side. Try this, My Brides, My Children – see if you do not experience a deep shift in your hearts from a Religious spirit to a ‘Jesus’ spirit.
“Yes, I said it – a ‘Jesus’ spirit. “
“Meek, humble, serving, slow to anger, always taking care of others. For those who had eyes to see, it was not the spectacular miracles alone that brought conviction. It was My love, that I would descend from Heaven to wash feet and make the sick whole – that was spectacular in nature.
“God among us.
“Now I have imparted these gifts to you, but many do not understand their true nature: ‘God among us’ and ‘They will know that you are Christians by your love.’
“I am telling you these things for your own good. Don’t be so concerned about prophecy and what will occur next. Be more concerned about tending to Me within you, and doing as I would do in everyday situations. That is far more important to you and the Kingdom right now than knowledge of the future or what is soon to pass. When you are taken from this Earth, it is those things you did in love that will determine your eternity. So you see? In this moment, I am instructing you on the most important thing you can do in this life.
“Your love is going to bring conversions. Your love is going to open hearts. Your love is going to bring conviction. Your love is going to disarm…in short, your love is what is preparing the way for Me in this moment. Sinners have heard enough fire and brimstone to last them a lifetime. What they have missed about Me, and why they have not come to Me, is My love for them.
“You are My last resort; you are ambassadors of love and mercy. Without you, I can do little. They must have evidence that I, living in My people, make them different. What good are the prophetic dreams I send the Muslim people, if they never see love in action from those who profess to be Christians? But truly, it is the blood of the martyrs unjustly slain, whose last words were ‘Forgive them, Father, they know not what they do’ that brings searing conviction and proof of a ‘Jesus Spirit.’
“You will see that there was only one group I was harsh with and it wasn’t the prostitutes and tax collectors. They needed to feel My Love, not My wrath.
“So, now I give you My mandate: go out and make disciples of all men, baptize them in My Love and they will run to be baptized into the Kingdom.”
Blessed are the Peacemakers
August 3, 2015
The Lord is with us, Family. And tonight, as usual, He has been faithful to bring a beautiful message and teaching about peacemaking and peacemakers.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Indeed, peacemakers most resemble Me. Of all attributes aside from charity, peacemaking is most important to Me. Without peace, it is impossible to accomplish anything. Without peace, you cannot foster love. Without peace, men are in a continual downward spiral of death and hopelessness.
“So, this is one of satan’s favorite strategies. Steal your peace, at any cost; deprive you of your peace. That is why I have promised you the peace that passes all understanding. Anytime your peace is being rattled, you can assume there is a snake nearby. (no pun intended)
“Ok… a rattle snake.”
Oh, Lord – Your sense of humor (chuckle)!
“When you get rattled you are dealing with the serpent. Yes, the enemy is taking territory from you unless you are very observant and nip it in the bud. But, for most it slowly coils around to cut off circulation to the brain, injecting the venom of fear disguised as prudence.
“When I visit a soul, I bring peace, whether you are aware of why you feel peaceful or not. My peace surpasses all understanding and all events. In the midst of tragedy, My peace can descend and bring order out of chaos. The dark forces you speak about, their entire agenda is to foster strife, confusion, and chaos.
“Anytime, anytime, anytime at all your peace is disturbed, or rattled, you can be sure there is a little demon nearby throwing off your balance, injecting you with its venom. If My people could recognize this from the onset, wars would cease to exist. But rather, they try to fight fear with force and force is always only a temporary solution. That is why My reign is so very important, to restore the Garden of Eden to men, that they may live in peace, good will, and understanding. How joyful life will be when I return! Still, you will have dissenters until the serpent is forever banished, but in the beginning, the peace will be a shining force throughout the Earth. Even the animals will be at peace with men.”
This reminds me, as an aside, of a vision that I had about mosques, and about how serpents were being bred in the back of mosques. They were crawling out the windows and doors and along the floors, and they would bite people, and the people would be infected with hatred. And out of the hatred would come violence and war.
“This peace will be hard won by the blood of many and will in its nature only be temporary until the final Judgment. Then peace shall reign forever. So, what I want to say is that peacemakers most resemble Me, and the contrast to that is the troublemakers that most resemble satan. That is why I called the religious leaders a brood of vipers.
“They pretended peace on the outside with long, flowing garments woven with golden tassels, but inside they were ravening wolves, seeking how to destroy anyone or anything that challenged their authority and rule. Absolute power corrupts and absolute power was what they were seeking. They threatened men with their eternal salvation if they dared to challenge them.
“Things have not changed one iota. Fear is still used by religious authorities masquerading as messengers and protectors of truth.
“My Dear Ones, have nothing to do with dissemblers and those who sow discord among brethren. This is most certainly inspired by the wicked ones. I want you to be pure before me; no mud in your hands – rather clean, shining, and ready to be taken into My Abode forever.
“Be peacemakers. Be the one to take up for the absent when cruel things are said. Be the one who puts a stop to gossip and calumny. How beautiful are the footsteps of the Bride who brings peace in her bosom. She is adorned with all choice perfumes and jewels from her Father’s house. Oh, how beautiful you are when you defend righteousness and sow peace among brothers and sisters. You most resemble Me when you bring order out of confusion, understanding out of conflict, turning bitterness to forgiveness and kindness. There is no price worthy of such a soul as the one who goes around bringing brotherly love and concord. The fruits of such a one as this will testify to her virtue throughout eternity.
“I want you to consider for a moment, how the wicked venom from the mouth of the serpentine woman can foment wars and disaster after disaster to rulers. First and Second Kings chronicles the lives of Ahab and Jezebel, his wife.
“Some men need to be spurred on, to be sure, but not to do evil! A godly wife will challenge her husband to listen to God and live for Him, not encourage him to sin.”
“Naboth declined the offer, just as he should have done, for God had forbidden the Jews to sell their paternal inheritance. Naboth was simply obeying the law of the Lord.”
(1 Kgs. 21:4).
“So he explained to her how Naboth refused to let him have his vegetable garden.”
“In modern terms, that might sound more like, ‘Don’t you know that you are the king? You can take anything you want.’”
(By the way, the commentary in between the Scriptures is by Richard Strauss, a pastor that has gone on to be with the Lord.)
“The story continues:
“She planned to commit a hideous crime; she was going to pay two false witnesses to testify that they heard Naboth blaspheme God and the king, so that both he and his sons would be stoned to death and the king would be free to lay claim to his land (cf. 2 Kgs. 9:26). She was going to teach Ahab her philosophy of life: ‘Take what you want and destroy anyone who stands in your way.’ And Ahab did not have the courage to stop her.
“But, the story is not over. These two were self-willed to the end. Elijah met Ahab in Naboth’s vineyard and pronounced God’s judgment on both him and his wife for their wicked deed. It was several years later when that judgment came on Ahab and it, too, is a story of self-will.
“The incident started over a city east of Jordan called Ramoth-Gilead, which Ahab said belonged to Israel but was still in the hands of Syria. When Jehoshaphat, King of Judah, came to visit Ahab, he asked him if he would go to battle with him for Ramoth-Gilead. Jehoshaphat agreed. And so this wicked man met his death on the battlefield when a nearly impossible and perfect shot pierced the tiny space between his plates of armor and He was killed in battle.
“So, here we have the story of a man and woman who are very self-willed. She urged him on to be more self-willed, and eventually indulging that self-will brought on his death in battle.” (end of commentary)
And then, the Lord brought these two incidents up, with Jezebel and Ahab, and then with Nabal, Abigail and David – this was the next thing He brought up.
“Contrast this with Nabal, Abigail and David, the balm from the virtuous woman can forestall disaster and reunite the alienated and estranged.
“Now, mind you – that whole incident with Jezebel and Ahab spawned a bunch of rulers that were just as wicked and just as evil as Jezebel was. So, it really ruined the nation with Baal worshippers and rulers that brought the country down continually, and left it in disorder. And this was all going back to this woman Jezebel, who married Ahab and had a wicked tongue.”
Now, the story of Nabal, Abigail and David, this is what happened:
So, here she is, saying all these wonderful things to him, and trying to appease him because she knows everyone’s life hangs in the balance!
Wow! So, she forestalled a major disaster by her good judgement. And the Lord has many times talked about bloodshed being as gossip, about ruining someone’s reputation. “Blood on Innocent Hands” is one of the videos we did about that. She, with her good judgement, kept him from shedding blood.
So, what a difference between the blessings that this woman brought on and saved her whole household from demise by her good judgement and good will. And, rushing to be in between as an intercessor to bring peace. A true peacemaker. And you contrast that with wicked Jezebel who was constantly fomenting trouble and was pushed to her own servants and trampled under the hooves of a horse and her remains were left to the dogs to eat. What a contrast between the two stories and the two women! And the effect that they had – the long lasting effect of Jezebel on Israel was serious, serious, really serious.
I think here, the Lord is showing us a contrast between someone who is jumping on board with detraction and ugliness and someone who steps in the gap to bring peace and try to do the right thing, and bring peace to both sides. And, the fruits of that! Jezebel has spawned generations of wicked rulers. Abigail saved her whole household and lived the life of a queen, as a result of her wisdom in being a peacemaker. What a contrast! And, I think we need to look at that every time we open our mouths: who do we want to be like? Do we want to be like Jezebel? Or do we want to be like Abigail? Because in the moment, it’s very tempting to jump on board with detraction and talk about it and make it big and juicy. But, the result of that is serious damage, and serious consequences for the people who do it – just as Jezebel was thrown out of her window by her own servants. And, Abigail, as a result of her prudence and good will as a peacemaker was made a queen – and of the greatest king that ever lived.
The Lord continued, “I am taking the time My Bride to reveal the fruits of a wicked and the fruits of the wise.
“How beautiful you are to Me, My Bride. Truly you take My Breath away with your virtue when you defend the innocent and refuse to partake of evil. Remember, in this time left to you on Earth, the devils are always looking for a way to defile you, steal your purity, your innocence, your beauty. Dissembling and destroying peace among brethren or family is the enemy’s favorite tactic.
“Be on your guard, My Beautiful One. Protect your virtue and the virtue of others from detraction and gossip. Keep your hands clean from the mire of this world. Do not allow anyone to soil your wedding garment. Continue to take My Breath away by your virtue.
“Oh, how wonderful it will be on that day that I take you to Myself in absolute purity with nothing to shame you or cause you to blush.
“Remember it is not what goes into your mouth that defiles but what comes out that defiles and reveals the contents of your heart. Keep your heart only for Me. Protect it without compromise. Bring peace out of strife, let your virtue shine upon all men that your Father in Heaven may be glorified.
“Blessed are you, Peacemakers. You are called children of God, and surely I will take you into the place I have prepared for you.”
Buy of Me Fire-Tried Gold
May 6, 2015
I spent a little time in worship – well, more than a little time. But during worship the Lord was comforting me over some issues that I had allowed to disturb my peace. As soon as I was done with that, I asked Him,
Lord, what would You like to speak about tonight?
“Dying to yourself. This is a concept that isn’t much thought of these days, and yet did I not say that unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
“There is so much for people to do, but they have encased themselves in their comfort zones. They live where they feel drawn to live, they choose everything to their liking – and this is why so many are lost and lonely, lukewarm, walking down a road with no real destination other than the status quo. Living for the pleasures of the flesh.
“The enemy uses the flesh to encase a soul in their likes and dislikes: where to live, what work to do, how to dress, how to eat, how to be secure. But I say: you must live like the sparrows to be free! Live for the Spirit and follow My will for your life. You have only to look around you and see the frustration and unhappiness of those who live to the comfort of their bodies. Something is dead inside, the spark of life is gone – buried under layer after layer after layer of likes and dislikes according to the flesh.
“Life is an adventure, full of new experiences when one lives it for Me.”
Gee, Lord. It sounds like you’re getting ready to move us.
“No, not yet. You know the move I have in mind for you.”
Yes, and you know the struggles I have day after day and again especially today over that event.
“Yes. You are living for Me, Clare. You did not choose where you live, I did. And you obeyed. You’ve been offered other alternatives, but each time you’ve chosen what I wanted. This is why you are alive inside. Had you lived for yourself, well… you don’t want to know.”
“But most definitely you would feel lost. My Children, when you live to yourself, you frustrate My plan for your life, you limit what I wanted to do with you. The place you live in is extremely important to My agenda for your life. You have no way at all of knowing what a certain move will bring. You only look at the shallow externals: the climate, job opportunities, your relatives, the culture and appearance of a place.
“But, I look at it to see if it’s fit for you spiritually. Is it the place you need to be to grow, to reach out to others, to have opportunities to grow spiritually, to touch lives – a place that truly fits My plans for your lives?”
I know, Lord. I’m always shocked when people say they are going to live somewhere because they like the climate. I used to do that and I was so lost. But somehow you brought good out of it.
“Yes, and I can use every circumstance as an opportunity to grow. But I prefer to put you where I know you will mature and advance the quickest. For this to happen, I need you to be detached from your own likes and dislikes.”
I wanted to share with you all, when we went on our tour bus, I remember, with our four children – the Lord had us in Iowa in the dead winter! The absolute dead of winter – fifteen below, in the middle of Iowa. And then, when He moved us on, it was Florida in worst heat of the summer! Ugh. You surely put our flesh to the test.
“And this is what I need of My vessels unto honor: flexibility and a willingness to go where I lead, when I lead. There is so much richness in a life lived in the Spirit and so much sediment in a life lived for the flesh.
“My Children, I have such wonderful things for you to do, but your obstinacy in choosing your location ties My hands. There are connections waiting to be made, a broadening of your horizons, a deepening of your understanding, if only you would come under the yoke of obedience.
“There is no reason why a person has to be tied to a house, a piece of land, a city, a country. The world is an exciting place with many opportunities for those who are willing to live for the Spirit alone and go where I send them.”
Lord, I know I have failed you out of fear of the new and different. I still to this day regret not going to Youth With a Mission in Holland.
“Yes, but it came around again, didn’t I? I did a work around with your life and you are where I want you at present. But so many derail the plans I have for their lives by holding on to the past and what is familiar and comfortable.”
“But will you trust Me?” He added. “Will you acknowledge that I am God and there is none other? That My plans are far superior to your plans? Will you acknowledge that nothing is impossible for Me? And that you can trust Me with your life?
“You must come to terms with these issues if you are to live the fullness of the life I have called you to.”
Gee, Lord, it sounds like we’re gonna be around for a long time…
“This is for those who will come after you, Clare, and for those who are listening now and feel a tug in their hearts to do something totally different with their lives.
“I have sat here, from My perspective in Heaven, and seen the possibilities for My Children on Earth. I have seen all the places that would have suited them so perfectly, but these places never even entered their mind, nor did they seek Me to find out where I wanted them.
“I have given you life and strength and a purpose. Hope and the drive to move onward. Please, do not ignore Me. Make it your top priority to seek Me until you find Me and know for sure where I want you. Hold in abeyance all your plans and dreams and seek Me until you find Me and know without a doubt where I am calling you to go. You will never regret it.
“Pay attention to that restlessness that doesn’t quite feel right with this plan or that plan. That is My Spirit intervening and holding you back because I have something better for you, with better timing.
“You see, when you come to serve Me, your life is no longer your own. Most people, however, try to run their new life in Me on two tracks: what they want… and what I want – within the context of what they want. Rather than totally abandoning their will and their way to Me, they compromise and then expect to be happy and fulfilled. But it will never happen until they totally abandon their agenda.
“Some are still catering to their earthly parent’s expectations. Some have their eyes on a career goal and prosperity, and within that context they choose what they think is My will. But they are so far from the truth that they would be shocked if I revealed it to them. Yet, I know the course they are holding onto for dear life will lead them into mediocrity and unhappiness. I can only wait until they discover that’s not what they wanted after all. And sadly by then, more than half of their life is spent and sickness has found its way into their bodies.
“I am just saying this for your own good, Children. Choose Me and My Will with uncompromising faith and clarity. Seek Me and wait on Me. Lay down your agendas, let your earthly parents lead their own lives, but you? Follow Me.
“Many are confused about what it means to honor and obey your mother and father. It does not mean to let them take My place in your life and let them dictate what your life should be. Honor them in their old age, help as you can, celebrate their birthdays with them, treat them with respect and reverence in all your dealings. But never give them the helm – this is meant for Me and Me alone.”
Then the Lord quickened the church at Laodicea to me. This was the lukewarm church, and I believe the church that lived by their comforts and the status quo until the interior fire in their souls just fizzled out.
“I bless you now with the courage to deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Me.”
The Calm Before the Storm
June 30, 2015
Ezekiel and I both spent time with the Lord tonight. And He did have something to say, which I’m basically going to paraphrase for you. It’s not a verbatim word, as we’re used to having. But it is basically His heart, I have to say.
I know some of you have gotten a little antsy because the Lord hadn’t spoken to me in that particular way for about a week now. Well, about a week ago, I was being corrected for something, and that lasted for 3 days. But after that, the Lord asked that we offer our sacrifices of not hearing from Him for the lost souls in these final hours. And, I know this is a very painful sacrifice for all of us. He’s been comforting me every night – I’ve seen Him, He’s held me, and He’s made His intentions really clear to me. And He spoke a word to Ezekiel about this very thing, and confirmed it throught the Scriptures. And, He had already spoken to my heart. I knew that He had been withholding consolations from us, because He’s trying to gather in as many as He can at the last hour. And this is a sliver from His Cross.
So, basically – this is the calm before the storm right now. And He’s asking us to bear with Him as He gathers our sacrifices together for the unsaved.
I know you are all frustrated with Him not giving you a verbatim word, but shall we deny Him this sacrifice by grumbling and complaining? Please, offer this to Him as a willing sacrifice. He is squeezing the last drop out of the grapes.
If you will remember, not so long ago He warned us that things would be intensifying before the Rapture and that we would only make things worse by surfing around on the Net, and looking for imminent signs of His coming. I mean, all of us were infected with this curiousity. I know I certainly was! But, He told us that this restlessness would only intensify insecurity and causes us to question what we’ve have known in our hearts to be true. Once you’ve discerned a thing, that you know it’s the Lord – it’s not healthy to go around questioning and listening to different arguments to see if it’s REALLY true. It’s much healthier to stay in a place of peace. And a place where you’re not totally focused on yourself and on the Rapture, but on a peace that allows you reach out to the people around you that still need a touch from Him.
So, if we become obsessive – compulsive about the timing of the Rapture, constantly looking for imminent signs, looking after this one, listening to the reasoning of that one, back and forth and back and forth…we’re going to be chasing our tails! And, a person who’s chasing their tail doesn’t have very good balance when it all falls down around them. We’re going to need to be standing STRONG when this hits, because for my understanding for the last probably 13 years, there is going to be war. And the day the war starts is the day the Lord is coming for us. But it’s going to shake everyone to the very core, because it’s going to be so horrendous and so widespread and so sudden. And, He’s asking us to be some of the ones who are so focused on Him that when this hits, we will be a pillar on this Earth until He takes us out. That we won’t be running around like everyone else, crying that the sky is falling in. We’ll be sound and steady and be able to lead people to Christ in those final hours, and explain to them, “This was written, this is going to happen. This has been prophesied for hundreds of years.” And we’ll have a solid reality to share with them, because WE will be solid in the Lord.
But, if we’re running around on the internet looking for different viewpoints, listening to this and listening to that and checking the news – we’re not going to be steady on our feet. THAT becomes our reality, and when that crashes and crumbles, (and btw, most of it is false information, anyway) when that crashes and crumbles, we’re going to come down with it. So the best thing is to keep our heart and our focus on the Lord.
He asked us NOT to do this because it would weaken us, to be surfing around on the net, and we would not stand when everything begins to crumble around us. Rather, He wants us to keep our eye single, and on Him, holding fast to His promises. The idea behind that is that we’ve spent probably, what, months now – discerning and listening to His voice and receiving peace from these messages. And I think because of that, we should be steady in the fact that the Lord is indeed speaking to us, and not go looking for other voices. That’s going to knock us off our foundation.
I have an excerpt here from the May 11, 2015 message, where He calls for focus on Him and away from the world. I think it’s appropriate for me to read part of it to you.
There are plenty of excellent ministers out there, that have very solid histories, who don’t agree with a pre-trib rapture. (Now, this is MY viewpoint.) I can’t defend my stance, because it came from the Lord, after many years of discernment. Dreams, visions, words and I cannot deny what I know I have been shown over and over again. So, this is why I teach discernment. Many men have many things to say – and a lot of what they say contradicts one another. But, if you know Jesus, and you know what God says, then you have the answers that you need.
Another thing to consider is that not everyone is going in the Rapture. Some are called to stay behind, and it could be that the Lord has asked them to prepare because they are going to go through the Tribulation. They may interpret that as being a post-trib Rapture because that’s their reality. The Lord hasn’t told them anything different, but that they’re going to go through the Tribulation. But in fact, it may very well be that the Lord hasn’t clarified that for them – that they are staying and the Bride is going. I don’t have any other answers for those ministers. All I know is that when Miami falls, Jesus is coming for us. That’s my reality about the Rapture.
May 11, 2015 excerpt:
“In one day the world will change. Those who have invested their lives in communicating on the internet, the news, twitter, Facebook, Youtube, telephone calls and all forms of communication, will all of a sudden be left barren and empty as the world as they know it comes to a standstill, and they are isolated from one another.
In that moment, our only reality will be God, and if we have not cultivated that relationship with Him, we’ll have no reality at all other than what authorities offer us: to lead us blindly into bondage to an ungodly government. If you have lived by the dollar, you will fall by the dollar. If you have lived by vain entertainments, worldly ways and communications and curiosities, you will be stripped of your reality…and then when you are offered those comforts back, you will do anything to establish a sense of security by having them returned to you. But at what a cost? What does it profit a man if He gains the whole world but loses his very own soul? So many will lose their souls in that hour, they will do anything to have their comforts and their reality returned to them, setting their Bibles right next to their check books.
Jesus is trying to prepare us for these moments so we will stand in Him and not be totally disoriented and freaked out. We have prepared our hearts for this moment. We have cultivated our strength – not in communications outside of ourselves, but communications interiorly with God.”
And guys, even if you don’t hear His voice, His presence is very steadying inside of you, and you can rest in that. He said He dwells in us. You can believe that and you can rest in it.
“He alone is our strength, while the rest of the world is reeling in utter chaos not knowing up from down, we will have the peace that passes all understanding while that’s going on. He will be at the helm of our ship, directing and guiding us. The seas may toss violently, but with Christ at our helm we will sleep peacefully in the back of the ship, just as Jesus was in the storm.”
So, I guess what I am asking you, is to not begrudge the Lord this shift of focus in your life. He is asking this for a very real and necessary purpose.
“Not only for our wedding day, but to keep you standing when the rest of the world has collapsed in chaos. Be of good cheer, press in with God, place all value and emphasis in your life on Him and when the world falls apart, you will be standing secure in the promises of God.”
Now, I just want to say this much. A couple of people have expressed consternation that the Lord hasn’t given me a verbatim message. He HAS given me a message, He’s let me know that He wants to use this sacrifice of not receiving a message for gathering souls in the last minute. And that He wants me to put out this teaching on discernment, because this is going to be needed so desperately by those left behind.
I’ve been trying to teach this all along, and it’s a little bit unsteadying to me that I’ve been trying to teach this and STILL, some folks are almost addicted to getting a message from the Lord every day. And, that’s not healthy, guys! It’s not healthy and it worries me, because I’ve been trying to teach you how to get your own word from the Lord and how to feel secure in His presence. It makes me wonder if I’ve done my job right. You know, when you are upset, or afraid or insecure. So I’d ask you, please. Use the tools that I’ve given you, and that the Holy Spirit has given you. And that the Lord has given you. Use those tools to steady your ship, whenever you feel threatened. That’s another reason why I was so strong with the Bible Promises, was because there are so many promises under the heading of Fear that you can glomb onto, and just meditate on. And you can just cause all that fear and worry to leave. As well as the Binding Prayer addresses fear.
So, please. As I continue to do what the Lord has asked me to do, to finish giving you the Bible Promises teaching (and I have another one on the heels of that, if time permits, if we’re still here.) Please, absorb those teachings and start applying them to your life. Okay? And if you have any issues with the readings you’re getting and you’re confuse, post it in the next comments, because I read all the comments in each current video and that way I can get to you and help you discern.
And when you post things in the comments, it’s wonderful, because everyone gets to see it. And that helps other people who are dealing with the same issues, and the same struggles. They see that and they think, “Oh, wow – she has, or he has that problem, too. Let’s see what Clare or Carol has to say. Because I have that problem.”
That’s how they think. So, we share in this – all of us together share in this.
So, steady as she goes. This is the calm before the storm. The Lord is asking for the sacrifice of NOT hearing from Him for the sake of gathering these souls together who are RIGHT on the brink of being saved.
We love you all dearly and we’re praying for you – pray for us, too.
The Celestial Wedding
March 29, 2015
Oh, what I have to share with you today is truly, truly Glorious!
As I came to sit before the Lord (it was later than normal) immediately, He overtook me from the very first second. He was THERE! And I was completely in His presence; there was no struggle at all. It just happened, it was Grace. He was wearing a white tuxedo with a white carnation and His face! It was stunningly clear. When I saw it in detail, He laughed in joy. He’s been working on my perception of His face. Oh, a wave of elation swept over my whole being and nearly lifted me up off the floor. We were dancing and it was obvious this was our wedding reception. I was wearing my wedding dress and veil.
We were dancing to “Praise Him” (Terry MacAlmon) and He was singing to me, and I was singing to Him; we were singing to one another. His eyes locked on mine with such gentleness and profound affection, His love for me was unmistakable. And mine for Him? Well, I could barely stand, so weak were my knees at those moments.
The last two days I’ve been feeling a reticence that perhaps the Rapture is not as soon as I was anticipating. I said, ‘Lord am I getting cold feet?’
He answered me, “No. Not cold feet. Cautious feet.”
Answering my cautions He said, “Yes, the Rapture is here. I want you to let go of the Earth and all the expectations you have had. All will be fulfilled in My time, My perfect time. But now, there will be an interval of glory for you and for all My Brides. I am taking you to Myself, Clare. We are to be wed right before the very throne of the Father, forever. I am taking you into My house, to live and abound with Me. (I looked up that word, abound. It’s: to be plentiful, abundant, to be full of, to overflow with.)
“I am taking you into My House to abound with Me. And I will take you through the celestial landscapes, to learn the secrets of how I have put things together – things that fascinated you from childhood, I shall answer. To dance between the comets and stars, and to dance beneath the play of lights in Nebula’s, among the stars singing their praises to Me. All this and more is yours, My Dove.”
Then, as the music continued, I saw us processing up to the altar of a brilliant white Cathedral as Jesus took my hand and placed it upon His arm and He presented me to the Father, saying, “I wish to take this woman for My Wife.” And after our vows, He kissed me, a very pure and tender kiss and we turned and processed down the aisle with confetti, rice and doves – everything, banners…flying through the air until we were in an open white limousine waving to people as we were driven to the palace. There we walked up the long spiral staircase into our room.
As we began to relax, he took my hand and the ceiling disappeared and we were flying up into space, or should I say just rising vertically, ever so gently. Soon we were exploring the glories of the lights in space, a blend of colors so delicate and yet shades blending into shades, iridescent, pastels. As we were just floating along, in an upright position, Jesus put His hand out and caught a comet and handed it to me – it was only the size of a softball, but on fire with sparkles emanating from it. When I let go of it, it continued on its way. Amazing! Playing catch with comets!
Still the music was playing and I was in such a mood that I really wanted to dance, but there was no dance floor. Then I thought, ‘Oh, what fun to ice skate between the galaxies and nebulas!’ and suddenly, ice was before us and we were skating between planets and moons and nebula so freely. Oh, I have never imagined such a magical thing in my life!!
“Yes, I am getting you ready to take you Home and you shall prepare also My Brides for this celestial event. And their joy and expectations will soar, knowing the joys I have in store for them. And this immense joy you are feeling in your belly is but a precursor of the Glory that will soon be yours. Oh, yes! Your toes wiggle in joy, your whole being expands with the very thought of what is to be.
“And yes, we will sing a duet, as you sing to Me and I sing to you and our voices blend in perfect harmony, the perfection only I can create. Yes, you are My Bride, and I am so excited for that day! I can hardly contain Myself for the fulfillment of the Kingdom of Heaven… and you shall be lifted in divine ecstasy and how we will all ecstatically rejoice!”
Oh, Lord! It is beyond fairy tale, beyond anything anyone could ever imagine!
“Yes. I know.” He kissed me and I disappeared into His heart and He smiled, “Yes, forever Mine for eternity.”
“Well, I wanted you to know, you are very close, we are very close or I would not be revealing these things to you. So hang on, hold on, don’t push it back to the Fall, stay right here in present time where you are.”
Well, THAT was a relief to hear. Because truly, the last few days I’ve been feeling, ‘Oh Goodness! Am I jumping the gun here? Have I got it in my mind that it’s going to be happening sooner than it’s actually going to be happening? And I was really wondering about that, and the Lord immediately addressed my doubts and my fears, I guess you could say…but more my doubts. Immediately He addressed that, went right to the point, didn’t waste a bit of time. And He told me, no…it’s not COLD feet, it’s CAUTIOUS feet. Yeah. I think we’re all cautious after all the times we thought He was coming and He hadn’t come.
So, I guess all I can say is, get your dancing shoes on – get your skates on! And be prepared. Continue to purify as we look forward to that time with the Lord. Continue to go deeper into prayer. Really, be ready. BE the virgins with the full lamps.
Definitely, be ready.
God bless you! And thank you for wanting so much to be so close to the Lord and listening to our videos. I really appreciate it, and I’m so happy that they’re having a positive influence on you. I know they’re definitely affecting me that way.
The Lord bless you!
Come to Me My Lost & Lonely Ones
July 15, 2015
The Lord’s precious presence be with you, my dear Youtube Family.
“No good thing will I withhold from those who love Me, according to My purpose for their lives. I have not forsaken anyone. People forsake Me. They don’t trust Me when their prayers aren’t answered according to their advantage, as they see it. This causes so many to fall away from Me. They have no concept of how I love them or how infinite My wisdom is. Rather, they blame Me for the things that go wrong in their lives, even though it is satan who is the culprit. They come to Me and pray that things would be different, but I cannot answer them with what they want, because I see the path ahead and I know the road they must travel.
“From time to time, you get atheists who have been jaded by phony Christians, or Christians “less than perfect”…yet when atheists act badly, it goes by unnoticed. I wish they would apply the same standards to their atheist brothers and sisters that they apply to My Children. I wish I could tell them, ‘My Children aren’t any more perfect than you are… but they ARE forgiven. And many, many are trying to change with My help.’ You don’t always see what’s behind a Christian’s life. You don’t see what they were like before I got ahold of them.”
And I thought to myself, ‘Oh, my goodness! If people could have seen what I was like – whew!’ That was not good. Selfish, proud, deeply entangled in materialism and impressing people. Not able to form deep friendships, give or receive love. But, something in me changed, when the Lord got hold of me. It took years for Him to change me. But it did change. I’m not perfect, I still have problems with all those things, but not anything like the way I was living before.
“Love came into your life. The kind of love you had always dreamed of: a holy, loving companion. I came and revealed to you Who I was, indeed. And who you were, to Me. So special, so very special. You had never once had anyone treat you like that, you had never ever been understood by others. You never felt secure in your life until I entered into your heart. You knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I Am God and yet ‘have nothing better’ to do than hang around with you: guiding you, protecting you and teaching you about My Kingdom.
“Your church experience was not any better than any of your other experiences – you weren’t accepted there any more than you were accepted in the non-Christian community. But, one thing you did have: a personal relationship with Me. You touched the hem of My garment, day after day, and through that you survived the bad things that happened to you even at church.
“You see, religion and God bear no resemblance to one another. Religion is a system fostered by men to get closer to God. Whereas, I embrace you without the rules and regulations, even without the knowledge of My Name. There are those who know Me in their hearts and spirits and follow all I ask them to do. Then, someday, when it is time, when the time is ripe, I reveal Myself to them.
“Yet, there are others who have been handled so roughly in their lives, they have no hope of love or of being accepted. I must surprise them with My Love. I must take them in a moment they are least expecting and shower them with My profound, unconditional love.
“There are many who blame Me for every bad thing that has happened in their lives, because they don’t want to give up their sin. Somewhere, inside their hearts, they hear My voice – but the world and its allurements overpower them and they ignore it until it’s too late.
“I am always calling, always waiting, always with them, wanting to bring healing into their lives. But, they must at least be willing to give up sin and receive My Love. The pleasures of the flesh call much more loudly than I, so I must wait until the flesh is old and weak. But, even then there is no guarantee that the bitterness they are holding onto will allow them to hear Me. So, I allow them to languish in nursing homes until I can reach them and bring them Home.
“Oh, how sad it is when a soul has closed the door on My Love and has nothing in this world to turn to. Alone, abandoned – many times through their own fault, they are so convinced of their own personal righteousness that there is no room for repentance. All is the fault of others – they were the’ innocent victims’. God is to blame for everything.
“Clare, I want you to love the unlovable. Go out of your way for those who have rejected Me. Be My hands, My feet, My mouth and My ears. At least in that final moment, I can reason with them. I can remind them of your kindness, even when they didn’t deserve it. This, many times, is the very last straw on their resistance and they break…a flood of tears, a deep knowledge of their sins and an even greater knowledge of how enormously special they are to Me…so special, that I endured torture to bring them to Heaven with Me forever. I treasure them, I love them and I embrace them, never to part.
“These are the days when many souls will be rescued in this way. That is why I am constantly admonishing you to love the unlovable. They are the most destitute of all, even and especially those who have known wealth.”
Lord, You are blamed for all the terrible things the Israelites were commanded to do. Few seem to care to find out why You did what You did, when you ordered the armies to murder men, women and children and just totally wipe out a town. People don’t understand that, and that’s why they see You as being too harsh, a terrible God.
“They did not hear the terrifying, heart-rending screams of infants, when they were laid in red-hot, metal bowls and sacrificed to Moloch. They did not see the perversion the people had with the animals – not even the animals could escape their wickedness. They did not see the mating rituals with demons, who impregnated them with evil and demonic powers. Little has been understood down through the ages as to why My people had to destroy every living thing. Yet, My Word is not lacking in explanations I make it clear that the wickedness was beyond repair. And now, you are approaching the Days of Noah, ‘as it was in the Days of Noah’. Yes, every perversion and wickedness will be allowed by law. Fondling young children, sex with animals, men with men and women with women – all of it is coming, just as surely as I Am. It is here, but still shunned. Not for long. The laws that have been signed and are in the works will make every detestable practice more legal than pornography. Now there will be no age limits – all may come and see and try it for themselves. After all, it brings pleasure, and pleasure is your right and your freedom.
“I am calling to you, My Children, My Wayward Ones. Forsake your loneliness. Forsake the lies, the darkness, the confusion. Come. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden. You will find rest for your soul and unconditional love for your heart. I will never turn you away. I will never forsake you – rather, your life shall grow brighter and brighter, going from glory to glory. I am not a man, that I should lie. I have good in store for you, not evil. I have gifts and talents for you, things you’ve longed to do. Who do you suppose put that longing in you? Now I want to bring fulfillment and happiness to your life. Your sins have only brought you grief and disappointment. It’s time to make a change, time to release all the old baggage and start anew: fresh, born again.
“I am calling to you, My lost ones. Come to Me. I will embrace you and ring you round with songs of gladness and thanksgiving for returning to the very womb that bore you. Yes, I will dress you in fine linen and place a ring upon your finger, sandals upon your feet and we shall walk together as one. Just tell Me you are tired of being hurt. Tired of hurting others. That you are sorry for the sinful things you have done. Ask My forgiveness – then hand over your life to Me. I will cherish you. I will lead and guide you. I will never forsake you. I will lead you by the hand into Eternal Joy in My Father’s Kingdom in Heaven, forever.”
Jesus, forgive me, I give you my life. Teach me, lead me, never ever depart from me.
Disobedience Brings Sorrow
June 16, 2015
The Lord bless us all with wisdom, Youtube Family as I share God’s correction with me, and I’ll share it with you. He’s corrected me over something. In the hopes that you won’t have to go through something like this I’m going to share it with you. If there’s anyway to save you from this kind of humiliation, I surely want to share it with you, because it’s no fun!
It all began probably a good three days or so…
When I don’t hear from the Lord, sometimes it’s about fatigue and duties. Sometimes…it’s about correction. You may have noticed in my playlist, I do have a video that says, You may want to delve into that a little more deeply. But, this time, it WAS my fault. So, I’m going to share with you the process of how He brought it to light, and how He healed me and delivered me. And He had a few words to share about it, too.
A few days ago, I was able to buy a thumb drive and cable for our computer for some work I felt I needed to do. Now, the Lord is very strict with us for His own reasons, which He shares here towards the bottom of the message. And I tend to be more liberal with myself. He has taught me over the years to make do, and I really do mean make do! Mending instead of replacing clothes, in general not focusing on the things I ran after when I was a “gentile.” When I wasn’t a believer. I ran after all kinds of things! I was a professional photographer, and I always wanted to have the best equipment. The best equipment and be well dressed and the whole nine yards.
But, when I became a Christian, He began to focus me in the direction of simplicity because it leads to humility – which I have found to be the foundation and roof over my life. And so, for the most part, walking by clothing and such at Walmart is not an issue. I just ignore it because I have enough to cover my body and the only one I want to impress is the Lord. And my husband’s happy with the way I dress, so those things don’t matter to me.
But, since I considered this a very small but important purchase, I didn’t check with Him to see if He wanted me to have it. I just ran down to the store and bought it. Well… I have to admit I did have somewhat of a check in my spirit, but I’m very good at justifying things…can anybody else relate to that? Yeah… So I just convinced myself that these items were necessary, and He wouldn’t mind. Right?
Wrong. He didn’t want me to have these items and I began to get Rhema readings about sin, which began to greatly concern me. You know, on the note of rhema readings, I’ll pick up a book by an author that I appreciate, and I’ll ask Holy Spirit to give me a reading. And, my rhema readings were not good for a couple of days, and I thought ‘uh oh’.
And then, when I came into prayer to get a message for my Youtube family, He was very quiet and not as accessible to me as usual. Well, I was also very tired. So, I wasn’t sure if I was just extremely tired, or if He was grieving and not very talkative, because other people had experienced that.
I began to feel like I might have made a mistake, and I needed a confirmation. In this case, Ezekiel had other things in mind, and he wasn’t sure what his readings were all about, his rhema readings. So, we needed an outside source.
After two days went by, I knew I’d made a mistake and I felt terrible. I was still in my mind trying to justify not checking with Him against common sense need, so I wasn’t totally convinced until a friend prayed for me. I told her, “I’m a mess, I don’t know what’s bothering me or why but something isn’t right, and I’m not feeling good inside.” So, she went into warfare for me.
She wrote back a couple hours later:
“There was a dark mist all through the house when I first started praying. I prayed in tongues after the binding prayer for a long while. There was a “block” over me for a bit – then Abba Father broke through with brilliant light, and I went to your house (in the spirit). I stood at the ready with sword drawn, there in your sunroom – but I didn’t see anything except this mist. No matter where I looked, there was this mist. As I prayed, the mist started moving away and clearing, and I saw angels stationed here and there. There was finally just one, small “cloud” of the black mist. I asked Jesus what it was, why it was there. He called it “sorrow and disobedience.” I asked why – and He said that you need to be conscious from now on to go to Him first about EVERYTHING you do. Not make a mistake, ask Him first, and let Him make the decisions specifically what to do. Before you make any decisions, ask Him to tell you specifically what to do, where to go, and how to handle these things. This was a big point. Like what to do with the money from returning the things you bought: you are to ask Him what to do with the credit specifically, before you go back to the store – and then do what He tells you. He’s not angry with you or anything – just insisting that you make ALL of your decisions WITH Him from now on. I don’t know why – that’s all I sensed.”
Well, I know why.
When I got her reply, I just was so disgusted and grieved with myself. I had failed the Lord and done something without His approval. I just sat and cried for the longest time. I had a little communion service and repented deeply for my Pride and afterwards I saw Him almost nose to nose, listening very carefully to my thoughts.
I’m so sorry Lord.
He replied, “I forgive you, Clare. Let’s rebuild.”
“I wish now to move on with caution, Clare. Your enemy goes about as a roaring lion seeking who he would destroy and he knows your weak points very, very well. And he has taken careful aim and shot poison arrows into your heart. And because you were not wearing the mantle of humility they took hold and fouled your heart.
“Now we must pull out these poisoned tips and apply medicine to break the bondage. Oh, he is a clever one, using you against yourself. But we will have the victory because you love Me and I love you and nothing about that has changed.”
Well, at that point, more crying…
“I’m here, Clare. I love you.”
Oh, thank you, Lord.
He asked, “Can we dance together, for just a little?” (‘Cause I had come straight out of my communion service to start writing.)
Oh yes, Lord, I’d love that. Would you restore the mantle of humility?
“It is already restored.”
And I could feel it – it’s kind of that broken feeling. And so, we danced together for a little while and He said, “Shall we finish the message?”
And I was so glad He said that, because I felt you all needed to know about these deep pitfalls in the spiritual life so you won’t fall into them.
“My Bride, when I am crafting you to your ultimate purpose, I have a certain image in mind. What would not be sin for one man might be sin for another, because I am creating a work of art and bringing to the surface all the gifts I endowed you with at your conception.
“I alone know the majesty and beauty of the finished product. I alone know the road you must take and the form you must fill to become who I have meant you to be – and that takes work on My part and obedience on your part to produce.
“A computer cable and a thumb drive might not be a sin for one person… but for you? I have put a check in your spirit, and when you ignore or explain away that check you are treading on dangerous ground in a forest full of demons.
“When you feel you must justify something to Me when you suspect I don’t want you to have it, you know you’ve entered that dangerous, dark wood of demons stalking you because your armor of humility is down. Any time you contend with Me, your armor is down and the enemy can see it clearly.
“So, he takes careful aim, and unless you repent immediately, that arrow finds its mark in your heart and infection sets in. If you are not careful to immediately come to Me for surgery, it spreads throughout your body and off the track you go. And, if you continue and continue to go off course, they (the demons) begin plotting your way to disaster. That is why immediate repentance is so important.”
And, as an aside here, guys – I don’t know if you have ever experienced lusting after something. You know, where you just have to have it – you just absolutely HAVE to have it. And all you can think about is HAVING IT! I’m not talking about sexual lust, I’m talking about some thing…a beautiful object, or a useful object or whatever. And you can feel it, it’s like a poisonous infection when he shoots that arrow.. that poisonous dart circulates in your whole body and it causes you to be on FIRE with a fever of lust for something. I’ve had issues with that all my life long, so I know exactly what it feels like. So, for me it’s not just a matter of getting the arrow out, it’s stopping that infection that’s raging. It’s really an infection of self-will more than anything else. Pride is what caused me to go off the track, and self-will will KEEP me off the track.
“At one little infraction, the armor opens just a little. But then, as you follow that course, it opens a little more and more and more – until you are fully exposed and then the stage is set for deadly and life altering sin. You have noticed how gentle I am when you first begin to get off the track. If you catch it right then, I breathe a big sigh of relief. I hate to see you go your own way, it always has painful consequences. In a vessel unto honor, it also hurts others, because it dilutes your capacity to minister.”
All you have said, Lord, bears witness in my spirit. I am so sorry, dear Lord. Teach me obedience and humility. Please help me to catch myself before it gets serious enough to affect others.
“And to all My Brides I would say: take heed lest you fall into various temptations that bring about the ruin of My plan for your life. Anytime you feel a ‘little’ check in your spirit, that is not just a ‘little’ check – that is a warning. It begins with one, small, act of disobedience and progresses from there towards disaster.
“That is why I have told you that ‘He who is faithful in the little things, will also be faithful in the greater.’ So in essence, I cannot trust you with the greater gifts until you have mastered self-control over the little ones.
“Don’t make the mistake of confusing Me with earthly men, who quite often will bow to your desires to make you happy. No, I am God, and have a much greater happiness in mind for you! And because I love you, I am not willing to settle for second best or to see you fail. Yes, it hurts me terribly to correct you. But, I would rather go through that pain and see you weeping tears of sorrow before it is too late to correct and you’ve lost an important element of your life’s mission, or we have to go ‘round the mountain again.
“My Brides, I do not deny you some pleasure for anything less than a very important purpose, so please don’t begrudge Me even in the little things your conscience bears witness to. Gladly hand them over to Me and we shall be at our destination in no time.
“My heart now is to bless you with the pivotal virtues of obedience and humility, without which you will miss the opportunities I have sown into the fabric of your life.”
After He had spoken this to me, something came to mind that I’d read once. It’s a 13th century parable.
“Obedience is like a knight clothed in a full suit of stout armor, with his sword on a strong and spirited horse… Riding into battle, he surely has the advantage over his foes. Whereas, Disobedience is like a knight with no helmet, armor or sword, seated on a sorry nag of a horse. He will surely be unseated, dislodged and taken captive.”
I think that was a Christian by the name of Giles, Brother Giles. I love that parable, and I think of it – I think Holy Spirit brings it to mind whenever I’m about to step out of that sphere of obedience. It’s very tricky, it’s very slippery.
The Lord bless you all, and I hope that you learn from my mistakes. Let’s pray for each other, because it’s so easy…so easy to get into self-will and move to the right or the left without the Lord’s permission. And that one, little move can have terrible consequences for the future.
Distract Me with Your Comfort
June 24, 2015
The Lord’s peace be with you.
We’ve had a couple of very, very quiet days. There’s been a lot of activity over here, a lot of things we’re trying to take care of. We’ve been supporting the Crisis Pregnancy center right here in town, and helping out with homeless children out on the mesa with their basic needs for food and medicine and things like that. So, we’ve had a little bit of a distracting time. But this is also what we’re called to do, and it’s not really a distraction, it’s really what the Lord wants us to do. So, we got taken away for a little while from doing messages, ‘cause I can only get so much done in a day.
The Lord has been very quiet for the last two days, and what I would say is very somber. He’s been very present to me and we spend time together dancing. I’ve seen Him and He’s been holding me, but He really just was not in the mood for talking…at all.
And, the same thing happened yesterday. Plus, I really wasn’t feeling well – I was very tired and needed to go to bed early. In fact, I fell asleep one night waiting for Him to speak to me – which as you know from other videos, it can be a 2 or 3, 4, 5, 6 hour affair in worship before He says anything. But I wasn’t able to hold my ground, so I ended up going to bed early. And the same thing happened to me last night.
But Ezekiel stayed up in vigil. He was strong, and he was able to stay up in vigil, and the Lord gave the message to him. “The two are one flesh.” It happens that way, it’s beautiful – it’s just beautiful.
So, this is what Ezekiel left for me this morning to share with you: Ezekiel: The Lord had us stay up in vigil with Him, but He was VERY SOMBER – VERY QUIET AND VERY SERIOUS. And, it has been a bit strange, but for two days and nights now, He has not let me do anything, but keep Him very close company. He has called me to the Ballroom in my Mansion, and using some very old, classical waltz pieces that I turned up on Youtube, He just wanted to linger seamlessly from one piece into the next and so on.
Although we were dancing together, I must say that His Heart and Mind and Eyes seemed to keep drifting off somewhere far away. He was obviously troubled and a bit restless – very solemn and unhappy. He would look into my eyes with great Love, but I could see and sense and feel something very deep that was so forlorn and sad. He gave me to know that He just wanted to be comforted, and distracted from the terrible punishments that were right at the door for this country, and the world.
He reminded me of the example of a mother who’s child was severely deformed. At every mention of the child’s deformity, a knife would pierce her heart.
Then He said to me, “When a Mother is so terribly unfortunate as to have given birth to such a child, she loves her child just as deeply as any Mother would a normal, healthy child – her Mother’s instinct being so deeply embedded within her.
“At the same time, she grieves just as deeply for her baby, knowing the suffering and rejection that her child will surely have to endure throughout life. Any mention about her child and his awful situation simply tears her heart apart, again and again.
“You know that terrible sufferings are soon to befall your country, as I have told you. But just to hear any of you mention it – bringing up the latest news – is so horribly painful to Me. Although I know more than anyone just exactly what is being planned, and when and where these things will take place – in Truth, I intentionally am very sparing with just how much I am willing to share with my Bride.
“For Me, it is the absolute gutter, and when I see you down in the gutter, looking to find the latest news… rather than being consoled and comforted, I am deeply grieved. It is as if a mirror were being held up to Me, reflecting back and confirming the very thing that I am already in agony over.
“I know and understand just how desperately you all want to know and see the signs of My Coming, just to encourage you and keep you believing. But if you only knew the depth of what you are looking for each day, you would no longer want to read, hear, or see even the least bit of it anymore. This I am asking of You with tears: please, you are My Bride. Do not descend down into the gutters any longer to look for more signs.
“I need for you to take your proper place, here beside Me, far above all of the filth of destruction and death. I need for My Bride to comfort and console Me. Take Me far away from these things with your love. Distract Me with your solace. Turn My eyes with your loving heart. Dance with Me. Be with Me. Do not leave Me alone in My Hour of Desolation.
“This is why I have brought you up High, into the Heavenly Realms that are being kept for you; hidden in God through Christ, seated in Heavenly Places.”
Clare: And for all of us, Youtube Family. I pray that God will give us the Grace to mind His business, to keep our hearts and minds on Him. And if there’s something He wants us to pray about, He’s going to bring it before us – somehow, someone’s going to say something. For instance, with ISIS. I didn’t go looking for that, it just came to me.
What He’s asking is for us to keep our hearts and minds on Him, on consoling Him. Because we occupy a very special place in the Body of Christ. We are here to console Him as His Bride. I mean, some of us have other duties, too. But the greatest thing that a wife can do for her husband is to be there when He’s hurting, and to comfort Him when there is nowhere else to turn to be comforted.
So, we occupy a very special place. And if we’re busy down in the gutter, reading all the news (which, probably 90% of it is mis-information either from one side or from the other side) it just keeps you going ‘round in cicles. It’s like a hamster wheel, just digging up more and more trash.
He doesn’t want to see any of it, because He already knows what is REALLY going on – and He doesn’t want to be reminded. He wants to be comforted.
I pray, Lord that You’ll help us with our incessant desire and curiousness and insecurity – help us, Lord! To not constantly be turning to the trash to find out what’s going on, but to be turning to You and comforting You, and to keep Your mind off of these things that are so painful for You to look at. Please Lord, help us. You know how hard it is for us to be down here waiting for You – and we really need Your help to keep our noses out of the gutter.
And, I have to say, guys…when it happens, it will happen – we’ll all know it. When it (the Rapture) happens, it’s going to happen in such a way that everyone’s going to know it overnight. And until it really happens, everything else is just circular information, constantly keeping people in a state of ignorance and agitation and misinformation. And we don’t need that. We need to be in a state of peace, to be there for other people and to be there for the Lord.
So, Lord – please give us the Grace to keep our noses out of that stuff!
Dwelling Prayer To Get Close to Jesus
May 1, 2015
I’ve had a few people ask us about our method of prayer, and how we’ve gotten so close to the Lord. I’ve done a whole playlist on that, with a lot of teachings on it. The longest one is basically Scripture to establish the precedent through Scripture for the kind of prayer that we do pray.
But, just to clarify something – this is not soaking prayer. This is what we call Dwelling Prayer. The prayer that we especially do and we get so close to the Lord through is called Dwelling Prayer. That’s a term that I basically coined to clarify the difference between that and different types of prayer and soaking prayer, and so on.
So, this is what Dwelling Prayer is. Based on the Scriptures, the Lord lives in our hearts. He is the entrance, the gateway to Heaven. And so, what we do, we come into His presence with thanksgiving and praise, as is written in the Scriptures. We worship Him. And, as we’re worshipping, we enter into our hearts spiritually, where He is present – and we worship Him there in our hearts. We use our imagination to some degree, just to get started to see the Lord, and He takes over pretty quickly. Basically, we worship the Lord in living and dwelling in our hearts. There comes a time during worship where He would like to impart something special to us – so there’s a kind of holy silence that comes over us. A very sweet and special place of peace that the Lord inundates us in. And, we stay there with Him and we dwell with Him in our hearts – we continue to dwell with Him, for it’s written: If we obey Him, then He will dwell with us. I go to a lot of trouble to explain all the Scriptures to you in the hour-long teaching on prayer.
So, that’s Dwelling Prayer. We dwell with the Lord and we listen for His voice, and we enter into our hearts with thanksgiving and praise and worship, where Jesus dwells. And, at a certain point, He may want us to be still and dwell in Him. And, so we do – and He speaks to us there. Many times, we’ll see Him and He speaks to us.
Jesus is the True Shepherd – no-one comes to the Father except they come through the sheepfold, the gate of the sheepfold, which is where Jesus is.
Now, after we’ve been with Him for a while in dwelling prayer, sometimes it seems like we are seeing Him on the outside of us, you know like standing before us, sitting before us. And that’s just spiritual vision – that can be in your heart, or be outside of you. But, you begin in the heart by worship, and this safeguards us from taking a wrong turn or getting involved with things that are wrong.
Sometimes He’ll take you to Heaven. We had a lady just this week that had a tremendous breakthrough. Just nonchalantly, she sat down to pray and worship, and she thought, “Well, I wonder if He’ll speak to me the way He does to Clare? I wonder what my home in Heaven is like, Lord?” And, wouldn’t you know it, He just showed up on the spot, and He took her to her dwelling in Heaven and she got to see it. And, this was all done in the spirit!
So, the Lord says that we have to worship Him in spirit and in truth. We’re working on the truth part – and this is the spirit part!
So, that’s what Dwelling Prayer is, and as I said, we’ve put a long playlist up for you to help you deal. We also have one, Discerning of Spirits – a playlist on Discerning of Spirits and the process that we use to verify that it truly IS the Lord speaking to us. One of those methods is to use the Bible, to prayerfully open the Bible allowing Holy Spirit to pick the page, and use the two pages to meditate until we feel a kind of sweet presence in our hearts, and we recognize that Holy Spirit is saying something special to us out of those two pages. And that tends to be a very good form of substantiating that we are with the Lord and not with a familiar spirit. We also use a little book called the Bible Promises, which is a very short, condensed group of Bible promises that are Scriptures – we use that, as well. But first, we do bind a Lying spirit, so that a lying spirit cannot use the book – only Holy Spirit can use it. We prayerfully allow Holy Spirit to open to the page that HE wants us to read, and then we study those Scriptures until we feel a quickening in our spirit that the Lord is speaking to us through one particular Scripture. That will give us an answer many times to whether we’re hearing a lying spirit or Holy Spirit or we’re in the flesh. I go into that, too, in a teaching on the three different voices that we hear in prayer.
So guys, I’ve done everything I can to share with you what the Lord has taught us. And, I’m telling you now, He chose me to share this with you, because I’ve got more faults than ANY of you, and all of you put together. And, I think He wanted you to “get it” – that your faults are NO impediment to Him. There’s nothing about you that is off-putting, that the Lord will not speak directly to you. If He’ll do it to me, He’ll do it to you, I promise you. You couldn’t possibly be worse than I am, especially compared to all the Graces that the Lord has given me.
I’m not saying that, trying to be humble. I’m telling you, that’s the bottom line Truth! And, it’s because of that He’s asked me to share with you. So, there’s not ONE person out there who can say, “I’ve got more sins than you – so He won’t talk to me.” Uh, uh…can’t do that. The Lord has already picked someone who’s done it all….
So, the Lord bless you, and there’s tremendous hope for you to hear from the Lord in this way. We started a blog: HeartdwellingwithJesus.wordpress.com and we’ll have the link on the page, in the description of this video for you. What that basically is going to be is, strictly Praise reports on people who have come to us, not being able to hear from the Lord, and have had breakthroughs and are now hearing from the Lord, and they share their testimony.
Thank you so much for your prayers and for your support. It’s tremendously appreciated. We are a full-time ministry, and these videos take approximately 4-6 hours to do, every day. The Lord has asked me to do it – and I just do it out of obedience and love. So, we appreciate your prayers and your support.
The Lord bless you all, and let’s stay in support of one another.
Prayer That Prepares Us For Intimacy with Jesus:
June 23, 2015
We call our form of prayer Dwelling Prayer, because we are dwelling with the Lord according to His promise that if we love Him, we will obey Him and He will dwell with us. (John 14:21) We have a playlist that explains the Scriptural basis for dwelling prayer: I’m Calling You To Intimacy (Playlist)
Paste in your browser:
As a general rule – and this is just only general rule, because the Lord likes to do things His way – you can do everything picture perfect and not hear a thing from the Lord. (chuckle)
I remember a time I went up to the mountain, fasting and praying, and I spent the entire day in prayer and worship – and the Lord didn’t speak to me once! At the end, I thought, ‘What is going on here? This is terrible, Lord!’ And His basic thing was – and He said it to Me clearly enough that I realized ‘Wow! You’re there – You heard me!’ – and it was simply that, “You can’t make it happen, Clare. It’s up to Me, it’s not up to you. I don’t care how many fasts you do…it’s still up to ME.”
I find that very humorous – but it’s also very true. But we can dispose ourselves to intimate prayer with the Lord and a visitation from Him. We can cultivate a relationship that will make it possible for us to fall into that place every night when we go into prayer. And that’s what we’re hoping and praying for, for everyone that listens to our channel. Because these are very difficult times, and you cannot discern by all the “rules” – all the black and white rules. You’ve got to be able to read between the lines and discern by the Spirit of the Lord. And unless you’ve culitivated that ability, you can be easily fooled by people who say one thing, but they’re thinking and doing something else.
Before you begin, use the Binding Prayer. This is an evolving prayer, I think my first copy started a couple of months ago, and every time I pray it, I see something new that needs to be changed. And after I’ve got enough things, minor details that need to be changed, I’ll repost the most brand-new one – so the most recent Binding Prayer is the one you’d want to use.
It begins with repentance for our sins and shortcomings. What’s nice about that is, when you are looking at these different things that are possible sins that we could have committed during the day, it gives you an outline. “Did I do that? Did I feel this? Was I angry with someone, was I judging someone? Was I jealous of someone?” So, it’s good to do an internal check about where you’re at, about what you’ve done today and your attitude about the day. Your attitude towards the Lord and your attitude towards others. So, I take the time to do that, looking at each item and making sure I apologize and ask forgiveness for doing whatever I did, and asking for the strength not to do it again.
When you come to the prayer part, I have a whole list of manifestations that we have found tend to come up during prayer time. And they’re things like: tiredness, distraction, spiritual deafness, unbelief – things like that. And we address those things individually in that prayer. You pray against a spirit of unbelief, or a spirit of anger or distraction. You pray – actually bind and pray against those demons that are assigned to hinder your prayers. That list also gives you some insight into the tactics of the enemy. These are things that are used against us, to keep us from praying, and from taking our prayers seriously and really enjoying them and them being fruitful.
The other thing we do is we proclaim this prayer with authority, through Jesus’ name, over the people spirits and manifestations in the list. We take authority over those manifestations. Like Lying symptoms of sickness will come against you. Tiredness. Oppression. Depression. We name all those things. So, it’s quite a complete list. And there’s one area in there for sure – part of that prayer came from Francis McNutt, who is a world authority on Deliverance, travelled all over the world. He has done some amazing things, and found out some amazing things about how objects can be cursed, and there can be demonic manifestations of different kinds. He always prayed his prayers three times, and so I give you the formula to repeat three times. Part of that prayer is his, and part is ours.
We have found, in this day and age, we also are dealing with extra-terrestrial oppression. That is to say that these demon entities that inhabit demon bodies – I call them “demon aliens” – are sometimes a sign. They’re all part of the spiritual darkness, they’re all part of satan’s kingdom. They’re just fallen angels that have figured out a way to manifest physically, ‘cause they’re highly intelligent. They know all the rules of physics, ones that we know and we don’t know. They actually oppress you. We discovered there was a UFO hovering over our house, WAY up high in the atmosphere, and they were beaming down an oppression into this house that you could cut with a knife, it was so thick. So, now we included those kinds of prayers against manifestations of inter-dimensional energies against us – that’s been included in the prayer now. Very important. It’s getting to be more and more prevalent, especially if you’re taking some territory from the enemy, you’re going to find that you are a target. So we cover that in this prayer, as well.
After you’re done with the binding prayer, we like to enter into the Lord’s presence with praise and thanksgiving – that’s Scriptural – worshipping Him in spirit and in truth. You may do this with or without music. We prefer to be drawn to Him through the lyrics of a worship song sung directly to Him, but you may feel more led to pray and worship – even in tongues – without music, just going directly to Him in your heart. All of these things work – we just want to be close to Him. There’s many different ways to be close to Him, there’s no set formula. But we have found a formula that most often works for us. We begin by playing worship music and entering in to the song, worshipping the Lord through the lyrics of the song.
Many times we’ll begin to see Him very clearly while we’re worshipping and then we just connect with Him and continue to worship with Him.
As we worship, images may come to mind, like Jesus standing nearby. These are not usually just imaginations you make up, they are sanctified images that God puts before you in your imagination. Don’t brush them off, rather take them for the real thing. Take them seriously! Because you have just reached out to the Lord, now He’s reaching out to you through some kind of image of Him being present to you.
Continue to worship, continue to enter into that vision that you have. But pay attention to what you see in the 'spirit' or your sanctified imagination. The Lord may invite you to dance, may walk with you on a beach or sit with you in a garden. Be sensitive to the imagery around you in the spirit. He’s a master at creating beautiful environments for you to be in with Him. Go with Him and stay focused on the Lord, and His love will draw you into Himself. You will feel His affection for you, you will sense that He is happy to see you. Stay with that. 99.9% of the obstacles in seeing and hearing the Lord is our own unbelief or false guilt about ourselves. Our own self-hatred. And that’s one of the reasons why I have so many teachings about self-hatred and guilt. Don't take your time with Him lightly or brush away images - that's how unbelief manifests. Believe that He wants to be with you more than you want to be with Him. Because, I’ll be honest with you, guys – that’s absolutely the Truth. He longs for your presence. And because you’re not there with Him and for Him, He continues to long for your presence. So, it’s a lie that you’re not “good enough” for God to talk to you. He’s no respector of persons.
He may begin ‘talking’ with you by putting thoughts in your inner mind…like a spiritual voice. He will always be kindly, gentle, and affectionate with you – never, ever harsh or condemnatory. He may even ask you to write down or journal your conversation with Him. This is a good thing to do, then you can go back and read from your journal to see what He is saying and gain confidence in listening to Him again. Because when you go back and read your journal, you can feel it and hear it – the voice of the Lord just coming through those lines. And it gives you so much more confidence to go back into prayer again, and expect to hear from Him. You can also answer Him and this will become a time of dialogue between the two of you. This is where the relationship really begins to blossom, and you can talk to each other – He speaks His heart to you, and you pour your heart out to Him, too.
Another thing – Jesus will always be very pure in your presence, there will never, ever be a hint of impropriety or sexual advance. Now, I’m just going to stop here and say that there are certain people who are very needy for affection, and are still in that age group where hormones can be very, very strong. The enemy will take advantage of that at times, because you will start feeling very warm towards the Lord. He never, EVER makes an advance at us, but we feel that warmth and that love. And if you’re very needy and you don’t have a husband and you’re alone and lonely – the enemy may come in and take advantage of that in you and what you’re going through. So, just be on the lookout that He’s never, ever sexual in any of His communications whatever with us. He’s God. He’s pure. And He’s a Virgin. His affection is strictly for the purpose of revealing to you that you are His precious soul that He loves infinitely in a personal way. During this time, you can pour out your heartfelt prayers for others to Him as well.
As you become more accustomed and comfortable listening to Him, you will find that you slip into His presence with more ease every time you are together. He is always present to you, whether you hear or see Him or not. He is always there, at your right hand. If you have fallen and done something you feel conviction about, DON’T RUN FROM HIM! My goodness, I spent my first 20 years as a Christian running from Him every time I blew it! Run TO Him! He’s waiting to comfort you, forgive you and to help you get back on your feet. So, PLEASE don’t run from Him! Rather, run TO Him.
Don’t be afraid to confess and apologize to Him – that brings Him great joy. He’s so quick to forgive you and give you the grace to stay stronger next time in temptation – or to stay out of temptation altogether.
People ask us, “How do you know for sure it’s the Lord and not a demon or familiar spirit? Or even yourself talking to you?”
That’s a very good question. We have a teaching on that – the – that would be worth listening to, it’s not very long, I don’t think. I think that would help you discern from the Lord’s voice, your own voice, your own wishes, your own thoughts – and the interjections of the enemy. Our major answer on this point is you will know by the fruit. Over and over again, whether you are on a channel and you want to know if that person is authentic and of God – you’ll know by the fruit. Are you being edified? Are you walking away strengthened in peace and strength from the Lord and built up? Or are you walking away totally shattered and fearful and wanting to run and hide? They’re so many people who are spreading so much mis-information, and then information that’s true – but it’s just terrorizing.
Unless it’s for a specific purpose – like when you’re called into intercession, like when the Lord brought up to me that He needed more prayer for the ISIS victims. Unless it’s that kind of thing – which is legitimate prayer – be very careful, because you’ll know them by their fruit.
There is a God-shaped place inside of you that no demon can fill. There’s NO demon that can fit into this space and fill it perfectly. As you become better at prayer, and recognizing the Lord’s presence, you’ll learn to be able to sense that place inside of you, when it is full and when it is empty. You will above all feel a deep lingering peace and feel the strength that you need, because God is indeed with you. He’s there, you can feel it. And the words that you’re hearing through your mind when you’re in communion with the Lord in this way, are filling that God-shaped place inside of you. They’re authentic – you can feel it. You will never feel shame, confusion, condemnation, although you may feel conviction and apologize, asking for forgiveness. The fruit of that apology will be Peace and His love for you. Oh, you’ll be so overwhelmed by His love for you when you fall, and His encourage for you to get back up!
Some people use a verbal formula, asking the person appearing as Jesus in your vision “Do you confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh?” Okay – that’s the formula they use. Now, I wouldn’t trust the answer “yes”. I would make them repeat it. The right answer for me would be to repeat what you just asked: “Yes. I confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh.” I have seen similar Scriptures asked of demons during a trance meeting and they replied in the affirmative but we knew they were lying. So, we really don’t trust that way of verification. And as I said at the beginning of this video, you have got to go deeper than what’s on the surface. People can say all the right things and be full of so much deception – and the demons are masters at deception. Plus, they have a big, fat file on you! They know all your buttons, all your likes and dislikes and they’ll play up to your vanity.
So, I’ve seen these questions asked, and I’ve seen different answers being given. One thing I’ll tell you, I’ve never seen during a deliverance or praying with someone who had a demonic spirit – they will not, in my experience, they will not repeat this part of the Our Father: “deliver us from evil.” They mumble that, “odhkewhgit”, they just mumble it so you can’t understand it. They will not say, “Deliver us from evil.” THAT, we’ve found, to be a black-and-white, solid truth. But, the other verifications, you’ve got to have the spirit of the Lord. We have to know one another by the spirit of the Lord, because the surface just doesn’t work anymore.
If in your time with Him you start to feel anger, hatred, condemnation, hopelessness, jealousy, frustration, or sexual stirrings, that is not the Lord that you’re with. Now, the Lord may be nearby – but the one that you’re communicating with or is causing those feelings is definitely not Him. At that point, I would stop and pray the Binding Prayer, I’d have Ezekiel come and pray for me. Go into worship again, maybe spending more time in worship and using music this time. We have a playlist of songs that always work to bring us into that really sweet, intimate place with Him.
That pretty much covers Dwelling Prayer. We’re dwelling with the Lord in our hearts. He’s present to us at our right hand and in our hearts, but He doesn’t always manifest in a way that we can see Him. But we are dwelling with Him. Through Him we live and move and have our being, and He is always present to us – always.
I personally prefer the Dwelling Prayer because it comes into the Lord’s presence through worship, and I feel that that is a safer way to approach the spiritual. ‘Cause we’re dealing with the spirit world. We’re not dealing with one person walking into the room and talking to them – you’re dealing with all the company that’s around that person, the demons that are with that person – or if there aren’t demons with that person. We deal with spiritual things – our fight is not against flesh and blood, but spiritual powers of the air. So, when you are moving into the spiritual realm, you have to be careful that your motives are very pure. This isn’t just a fun trip – there needs to be a real, sincere desire to be close to the Lord, and to worship Him and to pray. If you come into prayer to enjoy yourself, because it’s a beautiful space, or whatever – that’s not a pure motive. The pure motive is to be in worship and to be in communion with Him. So, make sure your motive’s are pure.
Always remember at all times, the Lord’s presence is loving and gentle. Anything other than that, you should be highly suspicious of. Pray the binding prayer again. If you have come from a background of witchcraft or been dedicated as a baby to satan, or have any history with Ouija Boards and the occult, you may need deliverance before you can be sure it is Jesus you are speaking to. If you have any history of mental illness in your family, or instability, be very careful to enter the Lord’s presence through worship and do not follow any extremes of thinking or extreme emotions. You are now dealing with the spiritual world and just like going to a shopping mall to get something you really need, there are predators that hang out at those malls, too, wanting to make a connection with you for evil purposes. So be aware of that – you’re in the spiritual realm, there’s good and bad, there’s God and then there’s satan and his devils.
Wherever the Spirit of the Lord is Strong, there are strong cross currents in the demonic realm as well. Why is that? Because anyone who is close to Jesus in spirit and in truth is a threat to the kingdom of darkness, so the demons are present to do everything they can to discourage you from this kind of relationship. You know, as long as you are not close to the Lord, you’re not any threat to them. But get really close to the Lord, and wow…you’ve got some tools. And you’re trouble! For one thing, you can duplicate your relationship by sharing with people how the Lord brought you into His relationship with you, and you can duplicate MORE people who have an intimate relationship. So, you are definitely a threat to the kingdom of darkness when you can communicate with the Lord clearly.
The Lord does protects us, but it’s a learning process, too. You are going to encounter turbulence. Don’t be frightened, seek out an answer with one of us or another qualified group. Remember: at the mention of the Name of Jesus, every knee must bow, every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Use that name! Say, “In the Name of Jesus, spirit of Depression (or whatever it is) leave and never return.” Or better yet, use the Binding Prayer form – that’s a lot stronger. Because when you use the Binding Prayer, you’re binding the demon that is afflicting you, you’re binding the back-up pool for that demon – and I guarantee you, every demon has back-up pools. So, if they get knocked out by a prayer, someone else can just come in and take their place. So, you’re binding the demon, you’re binding the back-up pool, you’re binding the leaders – the ones who sent them. They’re getting bound, also. The Binding Prayer is very strong. It’s still the most effective prayer we have found and we keep it updated, so the most recent date is the best version. You can always find that on the Home page of the website: www.Heartdwellers.org
Beyond all this, I just want to remind you, that you are the Lord’s beloved, He is absolutely in love with you, and it’s true that He desires your company more than you desire His. So don’t be afraid to press in and adore and worship Him.
Lord Jesus, please help us to remember the things You have given us in this teaching. Help us to put them into practice. And help us especially, Lord, to know that You really and truly are longing for our company. And put an end to the self-condemnation that keeps us apart from You. Amen.
The Binding Prayer Revised on: 9-12-15
Use this prayer, whenever it is needed, whenever there is trouble or oppression in the air, every morning or just before going into your prayer time.
~~~Begin this examination of your conscience quietly~~~
Before we go into prayer it is good to ask Holy Spirit to reveal any misdeeds or neglects and seriously repent, asking for strength so we won’t repeat them. Then you can go through the list, highlight what you are repenting from and call out the things you know you are guilty of and ask for the grace so you will not repeat them.
I renounce and repent of pride, rebellion, unforgiveness; bitterness, judgment, jealousy; greed, disobedience, unbelief, laziness, negligence, selfishness, self pity, self indulgence & gluttony; anger, depression, despair; lying, (adultery, fornication, impurity) and listening to lying accusations against Your character and the promises you’ve made to me.
Oh Lord, You are kind, merciful, faithful and true. Forgive me for having ever offended You and my neighbor. Grant me the grace and strength to sin no more, especially in the hidden places of my heart.
Jesus, please send me a spirit of repentance for those things I have not recognized or repented of yet. I present my contrite spirit to You, Jesus, and call upon your Faithfulness and Mercy to forgive my sins. Restore and protect that which you wish to do with and through me for others.
“Lord, You hear the desire of the poor: Your ear has heard the preparation of our hearts. We cling to your promise, ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God and He shall dwell in their hearts.’ I confess there is nothing I can do to ‘earn’ your fellowship, to hear Your precious voice, to see Your precious face. No amount of fasting or good works can earn it; I rely solely on Your Mercy.
For as You can see, I am faint of heart and longing for You. As the deer pants for streams of living water, so my soul pants for You, O’ my God. I appeal to Your Mercy, Lord. Please, visit me.

Getting A Word From the Lord
June 24, 2015
This is a teaching on getting your own word from the Lord. And you know, our channel is not just about intimacy, it’s also about learning to hear from God on your own. Just about every other e-mail or private message that comes to us from our different sites is requesting a word from the Lord. But, He has asked us to keep our focus on teaching you to get your own words.
Nothing mysterious about it, And the Lord is really up for this, guys. He’s got His Grace right there ready to give it to you, if only you’ll exercise your faith muscle and use it.
When I first became a Christian, the church I was attending was doing a Bible study by Evelyn Christenson, on a book called Lord, Change Me. It was then that I learned to listen to the message within a message. In this very simple book, you are taught to read a section of Scripture and listen for the Lord’s voice in a personal way, guiding you in everyday circumstance. That is called a Rhema.
There are different levels of training, and as you mature, the Lord will take you into deeper waters with this practice. But for now, let’s keep it simple and start with the basics.
There are two Greek words that describe Scripture which are translated word in the New Testament. The first, logos, refers to the inspired Word of God and to Jesus, Who is the living Logos.
The second Greek word that describes Scripture is “rhema”, which refers to a word that is spoken and means “an utterance.” A rhema is a verse or portion of Scripture that Holy Spirit brings to our attention to address a need for wisdom and for direction. So, when we are reading our Bible, all of a sudden something on the page catches our attention and is quickened by Holy Spirit for a current life situation. If we are listening very carefully, we hear the Lord’s wisdom for us. It’s kind of like, reading between the lines. And that wisdom is right for the moment. It just takes a little practice to get the hang of it.
When God gives a rhema for us to act upon, He often confirms it by a second and third one, that
When the angel told Mary that she would have a child:
Jesus told Peter he would deny Him.
This is how we get our confirmations from the Lord. Our opinions about things don’t matter, it’s God’s opinion that matters and when we want an ‘outside of ourselves’ confirmation, we pray and open the Bible and begin to read. But, rather than using the entire Bible, we use a little book, called the Bible Promise Book by Barbour Publishers. This book that has Scriptures sorted by different topics, so when you open it you’re immediately in the midst of Scriptures about a topic like Brotherly Love, Help In Troubles, Marriage, Parent’s Duties, etc. As we begin to read, some of the lines will begin to really resonate deeply in our spirits. At that point, we stop and linger, soaking in the anointed words and allowing them to minister to us. When we’re reading, the Lord anoints certain things. And when you read it slowly, like I said – kind of ‘reading between the lines’ in a letter – the anointing; you’ll feel it. You’ll feel the anointing on those words, just for you in that situation.
So, the way we receive guidance from the Lord is to simply pray for guidance. and
And you can really hear the Lord’s voice between the lines. It takes a little practice, but it really does work. That Voice has a resonance in our hearts that no other voice can duplicate.
We approach this like an innocent little child: We really do – we come to the Lord as little children. That’s the safest way to approach Him. Not only is there the greatest wisdom in doing that, because it’s His wisdom. But the greatest protection, because the Lord protects the little children. It’s the “big” people who think they know it all, and they can protect themselves who are really in trouble. If you come to Him innocent like a little child, without pride, in humility seeking wisdom, He’s going to give it to you.
Very simply, we earnestly pray for an answer and open the Bible or the Bible Promises and start reading. As we read, one of the Scriptures written there will come forth and stand out. And you know, I’ve seen it where you have to read two or three times before ONE particular Scripture really caught my attention. That’s Holy Spirit making that word come alive in our hearts and minds, or a Rhema – a present-time utterance of Holy Spirit directing us according to our needs.
We prefer to get three Rhemas in a row in order to clarify and establish the Lord’s train of thought. So, we take a little more time with it. We also have learned that we need to pray over the Bible Promise book before we open it to receive a word from Holy Spirit. The enemy, also – and don’t ask me how, ‘cause I don’t know how he does it – can manipulate the pages to bring up a reading counter to what God has for us. So we simply say, “In the Name of Jesus, we bind a Lying spirit off this book.” Believe it or not, we have many times caught the enemy infiltrating our readings! So now, for safety’s sake, we always pray that prayer along with, “Holy Spirit, please guide me through this book.”
Some would accuse us of fortune telling, but I’m afraid they just aren’t familiar with drawing lots, as it is used by the prophets of old as well as the Apostles, who drew lots to choose the replacement for Judas in the first chapter of the book of Acts. In that particular prayer,
So, when you cast lots, the choosing of that “lot” is totally done by Holy Spirit. And when you open the Bible Promises, again the Bible Promises is opened by Holy Spirit. Now, when we use the Bible Promises, we are asking the Lord (who knows everyone’s heart) to reveal what is necessary for us to make the right decisions.
We have walked some VERY crooked paths in our own wisdom, and we’ve learned that our own wisdom is absolutely a detriment. Always seek the Lord’s wisdom before you do anything.
It is SO much easier to do it right the first time, than to plunge headlong into our own wisdom and make a choice not pleasing to God – and in the end, costing everyone a great deal. I would much sooner act like a five-year-old child, throwing myself on the mercy and wisdom of God than to receive a precise report prepared by a human – who at best has limited knowledge.
In the past, coming to God seeking wisdom was called an ‘oracle’ in the Old Testament. Bible scholars call oracles ‘Communications from God’. The term refers both to divine responses to a question asked of God and to pronouncements made by God without His being asked. In one sense, oracles were prophecies since they often referred to the future; but oracles sometimes dealt with decisions to be made in the present. In the Bible, communication was from Yahweh, the God of Israel.
However, in times of idol worship, Israelites sought another word from false gods (Hosea 4:12). Many of Israel’s neighbors sought oracles from their gods. THIS you could call fortune telling.
Why were oracles given? To help God’s people make the right choices. There were “decision oracles” and “pronouncement oracles.” Decision oracles came when people asked God a question or sought His counsel. For example, David needed to know the right time to attack the Philistines – so he asked God. The answers he received were oracles (2 Samuel 5:19, 2 Samuel 5:23-24 ).
Saul, the first king of Israel, was chosen through an oracle (1 Samuel 10:20-24 ). In that case, the communication from God was through the casting of lots. The falling of the lots was considered an oracle from God. So, this is a well-established practice from the holy prophets and patriarchs in Scriptures. This is not some “new age” or fortune telling thing, not at all. This is serious business, this is seeking an oracle from God.
When we come to the Lord prayerfully to be instructed through His Word, we must remember that He is God and not a slot machine. He may choose to bring up something totally different than what you asked Him. There may be things in your life that He has been waiting to address for a long time and when you ask about one thing… you may very well get an answer drawing your attention to another thing. I can’t tell you how many times that’s happened to me! Especially when He’s drawing my attention to a fault or a shortcoming. It’s like, I want to ask Him something, and He draws my attention to my fault.
And I’ll say, “Yes, Lord – I know, I know I have that fault…but can You just tell me what I need to know?” And again He’ll draw my attention to the fault.
It’s as though He’s saying, “I’m not going to tell you what you need to know, until you really, seriously deal with what I’m talking to you about!”
As you can see, it can get kinda conversational, too, with Him!
There is a learning curve in hearing the Lord’s voice through Scripture. We have to slow down our thoughts and restfully read the Scriptures. At first, you might say, “What in the world does that have to do with my question?” When you get an answer, asking the Lord for wisdom and you open the Bible Promises and it’s on a totally different topic – and you’re wondering, ‘What did this have to do with what I asked?’
Well, I don’t know. That’s for YOU to meditate on until Holy Spirit illuminates it for you. There are no shortcuts. We all have to suffer through the toddler stage. It is painful – but SO worthwhile!
For instance, if I get seriously ill with something unusual, and it hasn’t yielded to anointed prayer, I may ask the Lord, “Why am I feeling so badly? Did I do something wrong, was Your protection lifted because I strayed out of the corral?” If He gives me the chapter on ‘Salvation’ or on ‘Parent’s Duties’ or ‘Eternal Life’ from the Bible Promises and I read those Scriptures, it is safe to assume that, right in this hour, someone’s salvation is hanging in the balance and my fast offering is going to tilt the scales. In which case, I will be happy and receive it like Simon ‘s cross.
However, if He gives me readings under the ‘Guilt’ chapter, or ‘The World’ – I’ll know immediately the devils have been allowed to sift me for an indiscretion.
Let’s say I’m invited to a conference with a speaker I really like. I come to the Lord and ask Him if I should go and He gives me the chapter on ‘Joy’ and ‘Loving God’. I’ll take those as a confirmation that He will bless me if I go. However, if I get ‘Lust’ or ‘The World’ or ‘Lying’, then I will not go. I’m serious about this – this really does direct our lives. And we’ve found it to avoid SO many pitfalls.
Let’s say I was nosey on the internet and found something that caused me to fear – like reading the news. It was something that could possibly hurt us, and I gave in to fear. If I prayerfully ask Holy Spirit to tell me – if this is something I should be concerned about, I might get the ‘Help in Troubles’ chapter, or ‘Guidance’ – which I always take as, “I’m speaking to you about this…” Then I would say it is something we should be prepared to deal with, that there’s going to be a problem.
However, if I get the chapter on ‘Lying,’ or ‘Fear,’ or ‘God’s Faithfulness,’ I could relax and not worry about it. Because, you see, in the chapter on ‘Fear’,, they’re all “Do not be afraid” Scriptures – “I’ll deliver you, I’m with you.” I use these Scriptures to repeat back to my fears. If a fear should jump up, I’ll use the Scriptures, the Sword of the Spirit to cut it off, so I’m not emeshed in the net of fear. So, these become tools. Once a Scripture’s been isolated that really speaks to the situation, you can claim that Scripture and stand in faith. And that will bring you through the storm in one piece.
As I said, it takes time to interpret what the Scriptures mean. Not everything comes easily. In fact, there are many times when we just don’t know what to think and we have to put it on the shelf and pray for better discernment. This is a learning process and Holy Spirit is your teacher. Each day you will learn more and more and more about how God thinks from moment to moment, and in different situations,, because you are constantly going to Him for advice.
There are some people who are too ‘grown up’ for this kind of discernment…they must find their own way. But we’ve been using it for 35 years and we can testify – it works.
One thing to be aware of, in all discernment situations: if you are attached to a certain outcome, or you want things to go your way, you’ll have a very hard time understanding your answers. You have to be willing to completely yield to God’s wisdom in everything. Ouch! There are times when you might as well not ask, because you know you’re not going to obey Him, anyway. Let’s be real honest here: when we want our own way, we’re not willing to yield to God’s way. And rather than pretend that your readings were confusing and you weren’t sure what He was saying…well, better to not ask, because you’re so attached to the outcome and so set on the outcome, that you can’t hear anything else. In that case, a good prayer is, “Lord, I am willing to be MADE willing to be obedient.”
So, this is just a primer – something to get you started. I think you’ll find that Holy Spirit will be working with you very, very closely, and you’ll grow very quickly with this method of what God’s heart and mind is about a particular topic.
The Great Revival After the Rapture
April 6, 2015
This evening, as I was listening to the Lord, I was musing on some things. I was musing on the revival that is supposed to take place before the Rapture, that He has told me before is NOT going to happen. And I was thinking to myself, ‘What if I’m wrong and I’m misleading my Youtube family?’ And that thought was weighing heavily on my heart.
“I know you are frightened. I know how you feel.”
I’m so sorry, Lord.
“For what? Questioning that perhaps it wasn’t Me speaking to you about the revival? Let Me set your heart at ease. There will be no revival until you are taken in the Rapture. Yes, then revival as never before will break loose, and I will pour My Spirit out.”
But You just removed Your Spirit when you took us?
“How shall My people be converted without Him? Is it not written that He convicts of sin?”
Then why does Your Word say “until He is taken out of the way,” which is the interpretation most have of that Scripture? Just then He quickened to me:
And that really stood out to me, their salvation. That they will come to the point of being convicted of their sin.
“So you see, He will be present and at work in The Great Revival. You see My Love, there is need for revival, but it will be shallow indeed until people are forced to see for themselves that their way has been death, especially My People and Your people for there is Jewish blood passed down through your mother’s lineage. It was kept well hidden because of persecution. But nonetheless, you are a Jew.”
“And I will say, many have Jewish blood and know it not. But I have told you that all men will see Me coming on the clouds of Heaven. All men means All men, it will NOT be hidden. No, I intend to see My people weep for having rejected Me. Does it not say ‘All the tribes of Earth shall mourn?’”
Lord, many say that is about Your Second Coming?
“And yet it is true that the church is not mentioned after a certain point in Rev. but in Rev. 1:6 when John Greets the Seven Churches”:
[+ Rev 1:6 He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father-- to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen. +]
“And this book was written in chronological order.
“It is my deliberate intention that My People know Who I AM. Without this knowledge they will not be able to repent. When they see Me they shall be struck to the very marrow of their bones in remorse for their sinful rejection of Me.”
Lord, You know the struggles I am having with the order of things in Matthew.
“I know that you are misunderstanding the order of things. The temple will not be built until you are gone.”
So does that mean You have spoken out of the order of events? It seems so clear that one things builds upon another, but that comes before the Rapture. What am I missing?
“Clare, I want you to rest in this. I will be seen during the Rapture, I will not set foot on the Earth, but I will be seen. My people will weep and mourn for having rejected Me, they will be left behind as the gentiles are taken to Heaven, then all Hell will break loose on the Earth; that will be the beginning of the Tribulation. I assure you, satan will waste no time in implementing His evil schemes and bringing the anti-Christ to power.
“The Earth will reel like a drunkard. Not only will the accelerator upset the magnetic arrangement of the Earth’s poles, it shall inevitably affect the planets along with the close approach of Nibiru and asteroids. Did I not say ALL Hell will break loose? It is intended that all of these things happen in close proximity, the judgement of this Earth will happen with great intensity.
“As much as I love them, the Jewish people are by no means innocent of greed and manipulation, the judgment for them will accomplish a two-fold purpose: their rejection of Me, and their manipulation in business dealings with careless abandon for the covenant I established with them, and that they should be responsible for the blood of the creatures of this world. They are culpable in this matter, extremely culpable. This is another of the reasons why they are here for the judgment, they must sleep in the bed they have made. OK, are ‘we’ clear now?”
Umm I think so, but I’ll have to reread all of this. You know how it is with me, I don’t really get it right away.
“At least you do get it, My Love.”
Well, I owe that to You, Lord.
It doesn’t seem that there is any special sign for the Rapture except you have told me about Miami.
“Miami is no different than WWII wars and rumors of wars. Because of the increase of knowledge, the damage inflicted will be far beyond and more confusing, disorienting and devastating than ever before. FOR that reason, it will be an hour when I am least expected. You see, with all the moons and feasts, I am expected. That should alert you right away that it can’t be on a feast day, because you are expecting Me.
“Does it not say that when I am LEAST expected I will come? That was a hint.”
OK, well now that contradicts what people say about knowing the appointed times.
Oh Lord, you are indeed Sovereign.
“I will indeed do things at the appointed time, but I made it a point to exclude the Rapture, so why are you looking to appointed times?”
Umm…I guess because it makes sense?
“Exactly. And I already inferred that it would make no sense. So relax and stop trying to second guess Me. I already gave you a very firm indicator, rest in this Clare. Please do not sow confusion, hold to what I gave you years and years ago. Rest in this. Stop looking to guess what makes the most sense. You are all wearing yourselves out trying to resolve this issue using the stars and moon and appointed times as your plumb line.”
Oh Lord….(I was thinking, oh boy, I must really be a false prophet…)
“You are not a false prophet. I like what you call yourself – My Bride. And does not the Groom entrust His Lady with His secrets?
[_ "Come here, My Love, I want to kiss you and hold you and rid you of your reluctance. Oh, when will My Love trust in Me 100% of the time?" _]
Am I not getting there, Lord? As Lisa says, I am a work-in-progress. At least I’m not a work that’s stalled.
“Well, I want you to reread this, absorb it deeply. There will be many who disagree with you about seeing Me in the Rapture. Don’t allow that to intimidate you. Remember, you live to please Me, not what the more studied and intelligent think. Keep it simple, rely on Me, don’t knock yourself out studying the Scriptures. I never created you to be a scholar. I have created you to be a Lover. That should have been clear a long time ago.”
Well, I love the idea of delving deeply into studies of the Bible, Lord. This is something I really look forward to in Heaven where I’ll have time, to understand these things.
“Yes, in Heaven it will be safe. But on Earth, knowledge puffs up but charity edifies. In other words, you are safer little, unlearned and dependent on Me for understanding. I can impart to you in time so small it cannot be measured by human standards, the deepest understanding of the most complex truths. Whereas you could spend thirty years in studies of Hebrew and Aramaic and still fall short of understanding. So, trust in Me, lean not on your own understanding, and I shall direct your paths of understanding.
“My blessing is upon you and all My Brides who have chosen the simple and lowly way of Love.”
I want to say, interestingly, the dream that the girl had when she was 13 years old that I posted just previously – He said that that was accurate, He said that that was eactly how the Rapture was going to happen. She saw Him, she saw the angels with the trumpets, and she wasn’t a Christian at the time. So, this argument that the people who are not Christians will not see doesn’t hold water in the face of what she experienced in her vision. It certainly makes sense to me that the Lord would allow the Jewish people to see, in order to bring them to repentence. That totally makes sense, that’s something that I had not thought of before.
What is to Come – When the Bombs Fall
March 12, 2015
I have a rather solemn message for you. I’m a little bit numb right now. I’m going to share with you what the Lord discussed with me this evening.
I’ve been having issues about timing, because the Lord told me that I was going to accomplish everything that was in my heart, that I’d have a peace about it. And He didn’t say what the time-frame would be, but I assumed it was before the Rapture. So, I was a little bit surprised this evening, because I was bringing it up to Him: ‘This is bothering me, Lord.’
“Can we talk about it?”
Yes, that would help me immensely.
“I never told you the time frame in which you would get this done. I just told you that you would complete everything I’d given you to do. But I didn’t say when.”
Lord, You inferred before the Rapture. And also, You’ve told me that You had thrown up obstacles to give Your Bride more time. Now I am very, very confused, because I can sense that things are really ramping up.
“Let Me clear the clutter for you. First of all, I did promise that all would be accomplished. I know you thought it would be before the Rapture, but I didn’t give you any time frame.”
Oh… Help me Lord, you can see I’m falling into an unbelief trap.
“Steady as she goes, My Love. Hold on. You must be patient. There’s going to come a time when everything you have wanted to do which I have put in your heart, is going to be completed. After the Rapture.”
But You said you were giving Your Bride more time?
“I just did give her more time.”
But, I sensed or felt you meant years – like a couple of years or three years.
“Well, I never clarified that for you because I am still waiting for My Father’s word. There is timing involved, acute timing involved.”
Okay, well…I’m a little stumped.
“There goes that unbelief again.”
Yep, guilty as charged, Oh help me Jesus!
At this point I needed to make a fire and heat dinner up for Ezekiel, and it was a welcomed break. I knew that if I went to him, he would help me out of my confusion. Am I being toyed with or is this truly Jesus?
I’m back, and it is Jesus.
“Well, are you satisfied and at peace?”
Yes, Lord I am.
“You asked Me to help you. He is My mouth piece and protection for you, Sweet Bride.”
Oh, Jesus – how can you call me sweet when I question You so?
“I’m not offended. Your irascibility only gives Me the opportunity to display My meekness and humility for My children. In other words, if I can be meek and humble with Clare, surely you can be meek and humble with one another.
“You see, I make good use of your stubbornness.”
Truly, Lord, You are gentle and forgiving. Thank you for being so patient with me.
“It wasn’t difficult. I love you and I understand your struggles, which by the way are universal to all men. But now that we’ve settled that, I need to fill you in.”
I’m here, Lord.
He kissed my forehead.
“Well, because the time is short, I have you both on the fast track to wrap up these messages and prepare yourselves for that day. Only in prayer and steadfastness will you weather the terrific storm that is about to hit America and the world.
“Each day, I want the two of you to make sure you are solid and prepared at any moment.”
How will we know that we are prepared?
“You’re going to feel a deep peace. It’s been edging up on both of you, just continue to keep your focus and understand there’s no time to waste. Please, buckle down and work hard to organize your messages and leave behind what I have given you.”
“Clare are you listening?”
“It’s the sugar.”
“Just bear with Me.
“There is going to be a limited nuclear exchange, enough to throw the world into a panic and set the stage for Obama to take the reins of peace and be declared as the hero.
“Your country will be in pandemonium and communications will be knocked out temporarily. But in order to enforce Martial Law, communication will be necessary. After all, how can the victor enjoy his victory without broadcasting it all over the world? Your country will recover from this devastation more quickly than anyone would expect, because everything is in place with full knowledge of what is coming.
“Your country will no longer be a world power. She will have massive issues of reconstruction and contamination to deal with. Make no mistake, those underground cities will contain the ‘important people’ while everyone else struggles on the surface. Law and order will be out of control, criminals will take full advantage to rape and pillage, life will be a mess.
“But, the very day that the bombs fall, that’s when I’m coming for you. Lift up your heads and watch the sky, I am coming for you that same day.
“Let Me repeat Myself: lift up your heads, I am coming for you that very day.”
“Do not fall into despair, do not panic. I have warned you over and over again, your redemption draws nigh. This is the moment of eternity you’ve been waiting for.”
Lord, I’m speechless.
“Well, it’s coming. As surely as I AM, it is coming.
“Do not give in to fear. Stand your ground, raise your eyes to the Heavens, I’m coming.”
Lord, help us.
“I’ve already placed my angels to help you, you will not stumble or fall, all is in place.”
Thank you, Lord. Thank You so much.
“You see, I have wanted to confirm this to you but I had to wait until you were secure in our communications.”
Jesus, I am really numb.
“I know, I know. It’s a lot to take in. But I have prepared you well, you’ll pass in flying colors.”
Is that all, Jesus?
“For now, yes.”
I’m Grateful To You, My Bride
August 20, 2015
The Lord is still with us, Heartdwellers! And, He had a sweet message for those of you who are still here tonight.
You’ll notice that I put up two messages tonight. One was the second part of Mark Virkler’s witness and teaching about Communion with God Ministries, and that’s to finish off what I started yesterday.
So, I’ll go ahead and begin the message. The Lord was very sweet tonight. He was just really happy that I was there for Him, and I was really happy that He was there for me. He just held me for the longest, longest time. And, I just tried to disappear into His heart, to get strength and encouragement to move forward. So, He began:
“For those of you who haven’t jumped ship, haven’t shredded Clare, I commend you for your patience and sincere Christian behavior, becoming of My Bride. In the days and weeks it will become obvious to you why I haven’t brought you home yet. I am going to cover for every one of you until it is time. Co-labor with Me in the fields, My Loving Spouse.
“Whether your job be prayer or labors for Me, remember: I overlook nothing you offer Me. Even when you forget to offer it to Me, I remember and accept it graciously. None of you can even begin to imagine how grateful I am for your posture of support, and I will reward it in this world with My presence and in the world to come with fruit you cannot even begin to understand.
“Much of the world is going about its daily business, as it has for centuries. Do you understand? I am holding back the wrath of the Father and delaying the commencement of the Tribulation. You have only to imagine the thousands who don’t even know their right from their left hands, as it was in Nineveh. For these, My heart aches. Many of them are Third World innocents who have no concept of what is taking place around them. They are simple people living a life very similar to Mine, yet not as yet knowing Who I am.
“Yes, laborers are being dispatched to the fields and the vineyards and they are coming to Me in droves: hungry, aching, lost, wanting truth in their lives, knowing they have not had it. Many of them are simple and innocent and I loathe to see them destroyed without a chance to receive Me. This is what I mean by their right hand from their left. They don’t have a clue.
“There will come a time when it will have to be wrapped up. In that moment, My angels will descend and take captivity captive. I will visit those that have yet to know Me – I will visit them and bring them to Myself.
“The time is coming, yes, even at hand when I must move forward. But until then, the governments of the world are not capable of setting in motion what they long to do. They are restrained and foiled. Each time they make a move to go forward, I make a move to check them. Many in high places are scratching their heads and wondering how this is possible.
“Oh, how I rejoice to hold back the flood until My little ones are in the ark! Yes, I will move on the nations, hearts will be broken and given to Me, in spite of the enemy’s effort to stop Me. All I ask from you, My Brides, is your support. Yes, your support, your prayers, your giving to missions overseas, supporting those who work in those countries in every way possible.”
And, as an aside about that, we are supporting Jesse and Ezra, in Uganda. They go into the bush and talk to people groups where, very few people understand their language. In fact, they just visited a tribe in the last couple of days, and they suffered terribly. She had malaria, and she just had her second baby. And then, he was sick with malaria, and now he’s sick with something else. Terrible fevers. He gets a lot of opposition from the witch doctors there. But in spite of that, he continues to go into the bush and bring them the Lord. He’s established a good little church going there. They built a mud hut for themselves there, that people in the community did. They’re out in the sticks, they’re not in a small town at all, or a big town. They’re living with the people, as the people live. So, we’re trying to take care of them, for sure. I know their character.
So, anyway, that’s our little part. Continuing on with the Lords’ message:
“And, I ask you to continue to be a fool for Me. Continue to warn your loved ones and friends while they have time to consider their ways. Do not allow yourselves to be cowed by their worldliness. They don’t show it, but inside they are insecure, not truly knowing the outcome of their lives. They medicate it with entertainments, but in those moments that are quiet, something inside troubles them. My Spirit is touching that emptiness within and making it acutely painful.”
Lord, what about “casting pearls before swine”… some are being trampled on by their relatives? It’s terrible! Isn’t it better to be silent before the ones that are really hostile?
“Wait for a teachable moment, My Bride. At funerals, the hospital, sickness, financial loss, a broken relationship, when things are not going well for them. Approach them with encouragement, but also reminders that life is short and they are not guaranteed one more day. They may appear scornful, but I will continue to stir their spirits. Many times things are not what they seem with others – they mask their feelings, their fears and insecurities. And, when they see how peaceful and secure you are, they wonder…’Could it be real? This relationship with Jesus, maybe there is something to it?’ That is your best hope for the openly hostile.
“Do not provoke them, but let them catch you praying for them when hard things happen. Comfort them and pray for mercy. In this way, they will know you are sincere and I can move to help them. Yet, so many I help, do not recognize it is Me. They know someone prayed, but they are not yet willing to recognize Who that someone was praying to. They are not ready to give up their lives of sin, so they forget. But, I visit them again, and again, and again. They don’t call Me the Hound of Heaven for no reason!
“I know how difficult it has been for many of you – most of you. I know you have watched and waited and grown weary. I’ve been with you at those times. I’ve lived through those times with you, giving you strength, hope and the ability to persevere. You cannot imagine what I lived through: the indifference, ungratefulness, betrayals in the three short years of My ministry, culminating in My execution. The intensity of opposition is something you will never have to face. Nevertheless, you have your own crosses to carry and I do not make light of them.
“I know your frustrations, I know your sorrows, those hidden things you tell no one. I know your shame over your past mistakes. I am with you night and day, in your thoughts, in your dreams, in your tears. I visit you with consolations. I calm your fears and rest your hearts in Mine. Reach always for that place…where My Heart abides. Place your head over that place, receive the healing you need, leave the burdens behind there, and take from My Heart of Infinite Mercy the waters of Divine Healing, unlimited in their ability to impart new life, hope, and courage to you.
“I am with you, My Daughters, My Sons, My Brides. As you wait, I bring opportunities to you, to prove your love for Me by going out of your way, by holding your tongue, by praying for those who abuse you. Oh yes, I see every day the way you are treated, and how you do violence to your flesh and pray for your abusers. This is so pleasing to Me, and one day those people will seek you out to say, ‘Thank you. Thank you for not giving up on me when I was so cruel to you. Thank you for praying for me and showing me Jesus.’ Yes, you will have much fruit in Heaven because I visit these hard cases at moments when they have nothing left, no more fight, are completely broken and depleted. I visit and I move on their hearts. I bring a mountain of conviction down on their heads with mountains and mountains of love simultaneously and they finally repent.
“For you have shown them who I truly am. You have given Me the experiences to convict them with. I bring those pictures to mind, and show them how I was there through how you reacted. So, you see? Though you think you’ve done very little, you have done very much. You have sown the seeds of kindness, forbearance, tolerance and mercy. And, I will continue to water those until it is time to harvest. You just have no concept of the fruit that awaits you in Heaven for your labors.”
And, at that point, the Lord kinda confided in me, and said, “Well what do you think of that? Do you think they will be happy to hear that?”
“Yes, I am happy to tell them how much they mean to Me. How much their little efforts have done for Me. How great their harvest will be. Yes, I am well pleased with My persevering Brides! Those that have not reacted in hostility and mean-ness to My delay.
“And for the others, well, I forgive them. They just don’t know what they’ve done.”
Me too, Lord.
“I know your heart is still aching and hurting. You can’t hide it from Me, you know.”
Well, for the most part, You’ve made the oww-eee better. Thank you, Lord.
“Let Me hold you, My Bride. Come here.”
Draw The Line on Your Involvement With the World Keep Your Eyes on What’s Coming
March 24, 2015
Tonight’s message is rather practicle, and I think the Lord is basically warning us of traps that lie ahead in the time that’s left to us – whatever length of time that is. He had a kind of “edge” of urgency about His voice tonight, and very deliberate teaching.
“Peace. I speak Peace to you, My Bride. Your heart has apprehension and expectation, and too many knots tied here and there. I need you to rest in Me and have My Peace.”
Lord, I don’t know how to do that? Sometimes when things come up that seem urgent…
“Well, when I hold you in My arms you let out deep sighs, and My Peace, flowing like a river from within Me, finds its place in you. And then you bring that peace to My Children. That is why this time is so very important to Me, and to Us before you write. What are you feeling right now?”
I’m feeling Your Peace, Lord.
“That’s exactly right. This peace and calm is from Me. Each day you need to function more and more on this level, because I will use you to minister peace. This is important to me. Don’t underestimate the power of the enemy to derail the faith of many simply because they were filled with worldly anxiety.”
Let me take a minute and say, I’ve noticed that when I get my mind too much on what’s going on in the world, I begin to have doubts and fears. And I think that’s what He’s talking about here. We really have to guard our minds and our hearts – the eye gates, the ear gates.
“There are plenty of people on the internet talking about all the threats coming upon the world – especially for Christians. My People need to find Me and My Peace. Your channel is to be about finding peace in Me, I am their refuge, come to Me and be enveloped by Me, rest in Me.”
Here, I’d like to take a quick break and say that, I’ve found dancing with the Lord, worshipping, going to that secret place in our hearts with the Lord, resting in His arms is the quickest way to absorb that peace, that calm. And that surety of His covering of protection and leadership. It takes your mind completely off everything except Him, His tenderness and His strength. And that’s why this form of worship and being with him is NOT just for women – and it’s not just some “romantic ideal.” It’s a very practical way of the Bride being joined to the Groom in a very sweet union that deeply, deeply strengthening and necessary for the world we live in right now and for these times. So that’s why dancing with Him is so, so important. It brings the intimacy in, and it brings you to a place of calm and peace and safety, where you can receive everything that He is into your being while you’re with Him. And when you come out of it, you’re so strengthened.
“Clare, there are so many that are troubled by so many things: decisions, fears, apprehensions…will I suffer? I cannot promise that this time will be free of all suffering, every day has its issues. But I can promise that they shall not feel My Wrath, they will be taken before that happens. But you know how you get tied up in knots over doing this or doing that and things seem so complicated – sometimes you have to fight your way out of a web just to be here with Me.
“Well many, many, many of My Brides have not simplified their lives and cut off things that bind their time. Many. I want this to change, I want them to begin to live right now as they will in Heaven. Yes, there are duties to attend to, but if they re-assess these things they will find ways to cut their time in the world by at least half.
“So many things are taken for granted, like going to the store. You know what you’ve experienced there, putting it off, and putting it off, and putting it off, until finally, it HAD to be done. Well, this is a good thing because the stores are very fracturing, very disruptive to the deep peace I impart to each one in their quiet time. In their involvement with the world, be it a seemingly harmless TV show, a trip to the store, a magazine, all these things are fraught with ideas that stick in their heads and rob them of peace. It is so important to have a pure heart AND a pure mind. The mind can only handle so much and if it is secular in nature, it erodes what takes place in My presence. It clutters the mind so there is no room for Me.”
But after a while Lord, don’t we need a break to keep our perspective?
“Yes, but make it a break that is simple and pure. Like a walk in the field, noticing the buds on the trees, the grass peeking through, the playful antics of cats and dogs. Don’t trouble yourselves with long distance planning. Don’t engage in ‘I’ve gotta fix this, I’ve gotta fix that.’ These are the devil’s ploys to draw you into projects that will tire you and deplete you of your spiritual peace. They very often require trips to the store or shopping on the net. This is very, very, very detrimental to a spiritual person and alas they don’t pick up on it, they think it is just innocent work that has to be done. But satan knows better so he commands his demons to work on guilt over projects that should be done…‘You’re not responsible! You should have done that last year, etc. etc.’
“I don’t want their minds in this place. I don’t want your mind in that place.”
And, I have to take a break here. He’s just described me to a “T”. I would have lists…of my lists! I had so much to do for these houses that we have. I would go to my Bible Promise just to touch in with the Lord, and I would get, “Money and the World, Money and the World…” And I’d think, What do you mean?? ‘Money and the World…’ What have I done NOW?’ I’m just out there, you know, digging in the garden, weeding, raking the leaves…what’s ‘Money and the World’ about that?? I really didn’t understand what He was getting at, at the time.
Then, I began to suspect I needed to find other ways to take care of my garden – like, make sure it’s a stone garden that doesn’t need weeding and planting and digging… So that my time would be freer for HIM. I love beautiful things, I love design – and it’s SO EASY for me to get caught up in these things. So, what He’s sharing here – wow. He’s painting a really clear picture of me…as I HAVE been. Fortunately, some of that has really changed, thanks to the Lord.
“I don’t want their minds in this place. I don’t want your mind in this place. I want everyone focused on Heaven and My coming for them. Part of the foolish virgin’s problem was that they were so tied up in the world, it didn’t occur to them to bring oil for their lamps. Projecting from there, they thought, ‘Well, I’ll just be a little while and back to work.’ Their minds were on what was waiting for them to do at home, not really on Me or My agenda, very much like Martha. But the wise virgins, like Mary, thought they could wait, and wait, and wait for Me. It wasn’t a waste of time, it was bliss, because all they had on their minds was Me – everything else was a burden and so they were happy to think, ‘He might be delayed. Good, then I can just be quiet and wait. So, I’ll bring more oil for my lamp’.
And I thought to myself, when He said that, ‘Oh Lord, the foolish virgins were just a story You told. And now You’re fleshing it out, saying what was behind the scenes of that story…am I hearing You right?
“I’m serious here, Beloved. I want to get a concept across. The foolish virgins were carnally minded, taken up with the doings of the world. They considered having to wait a waste of time.
“You’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about. You’ve struggled with this all your life, and it’s only been very recently that you’ve for the most part overcome yourself in this area.”
That’s very, very true. I used to look forward to Spring time: planting, gardening, making things ‘nice’. But now I put it off because I am so involved in ministry with You, that’s all I care about. Going to the store is something I hate, to a fault, I’m afraid.
“Do you see how far you’ve come?”
Yes, Lord, You have done this thing in me.
“And you cooperated.”
Well, I can see one thing, that the enemy has tried to drag me into spring cleaning projects and getting deeper into cleaning, etc. And somehow I’ve managed to suppress that urge. I don’t even know how.
“I’ve been watching over and helping you recognize the traps.”
Yes, indeed they are traps. I realize that now.
“May I say to you all, you don’t have time for this? Keep your minds strictly on Heaven, My coming, and what simple thing you can do for your neighbor in a spirit of brotherly love. Draw the line, My Brides. I’m coming. Don’t get seduced into any worldly endeavors that take attention off of Me. Keep your eyes on the Prize.
“Military people do not get involved in secular affairs. Spiritual people do not get involved in secular affairs. Do only what is necessary as a matter of duty, and when I say necessary, I mean ‘get by’ necessary, not throwing yourself into projects that will deplete your energy or attention and make you weak.
“When you are in a weakened state, the enemy is nearby. Like wolves that study the herd to see which are most vulnerable. The demons study you and wait until you are tired, overworked and exhausted, then they pounce on you with doubt, fear, insecurity, unbelief and anxiety. Don’t allow yourselves to go there – stay vigilant, stay alert, stay centered on Me, keep your eyes open and don’t walk into any traps set for you. When I say traps, I mean an urgent phone call where someone is asking for your help, and you can see it’s going to wear you out. That’s not Me, that’s not brotherly love, that’s demonic, luring you into being worn out so in your weakened state they can tempt you to sin.”
I’m going to stop here, guys, and tell you a little about what’s been going on. We have two houses here that we’ve been caretaking, and we have an elderly woman in the front house, who’s not too good about taking care of herself. We got an email all of a sudden, saying that the owner’s were going to turn the front house into a Bed and Breakfast – and they wanted to come see it. If I hadn’t seen it for what it was at the time, I would have dropped EVERYTHING, and gotten to work on that front house, gotten her moved out.
But I realized, this was a ploy of the devil to steal my attention off the Lord and off His coming. I…thank the Lord, I didn’t fall for it! I’m tackling the project, but I’m doing it very circumspectly, very carefully, and not allowing myself to plunge in head over heels into this huge project – which is what I would have done before. This MAY come to absolutely, nothing – they may drop the idea totally. This has happened in the past, and it might end up like that. If it does, then I would have wasted all that time and put this poor woman out on the street. So, I’m going very slowly and very carefully, and everything will get taken care of in it’s right time. But, then temptation to just “cut and run” was HUGE! Let me tell you: it was HUGE!! So, the Lord is really, really addressing “spring fever” for all of us right now! Be careful. If He comes in the next couple of weeks, and we’ve got our heads buried in other things – we could be left behind. We could be like the virgins that have fallen asleep, is what I’m saying – we’ve fallen asleep spiritually, because we’re so carnally minded.
“Another trap is, ‘Oh, I just HAVE to do that!’ something you’ve been putting off. Stay calm and really look at the problem. Is there a way around it without you diving in? Clare, that’s why I’ve been holding you back on the front house, this is a huge temptation to cause you to collapse in fatigue. So far, you have been wise to sidestep it and think of ways around it. That e-mail was a Trojan horse unleashing all kinds of ‘have to’s.’ You have been trained in seeing that so, you didn’t fall for it, but it was a BIG temptation to pull you off of Me and your ministry. You stayed calm and deliberate. That’s what I’m talking about, My Brides. Stay calm and deliberate, assess the situation and do only what is absolutely necessary. Make sure it’s not a trap that will suck the life out of you and draw you away from prayer.
“Right now, none of you can afford to drift off – I need your full attention on Me. I will help you. You are not alone. My Spirit will whisper in your ear, ‘don’t do it’ and you will feel a check in your spirit. Obey that, do not toy with the idea, don’t give in to ideas of guilt – ‘you’re not a good mother, or a good father’ if you don’t do that. No. Follow what you know is Me and My path and I’ll take care of your children.”
And I want to break here for a moment, and just say Wow. Children are so huge in this equation. They can so easily, easily – adult children – throw you off, and cause you to have to go in a direction that’s totally, totally contrary to what the Lord is doing. So…I mean, I love my kids and wish they were close – but if they were close, I can see that I would be getting into all kinds of trouble and be tempted to be drawn off track. So, visiting a couple of times a year, that turns out to be the best.
In the world there are endless invitations to get this or that done. The Lord doesn’t want us to be foolish, let the world bury the world, but we need to follow the Lord.
“I am with you, My Brides. Time is wrapping up. I’m coming. Don’t collapse in worldly fatigue on your doorstep. Stay vigilant and save your time and energy for Me and Me alone. You will never regret it.”
Jesus is Weeping, “Console Me.”
June 14, 2015
The Lord’s not speaking to me right now. But, I want to give you an update anyway. Two nights ago, when I didn’t get a message, I saw the Lord sitting and weeping. I put my arms around Him and held Him, stroking His hair. When I awoke in the morning and came back into worship, it was the same thing – He was sitting and weeping.
In the meantime, Carol, our assistant was taking one of her classes with Inside/Out – the group that trains people in the spiritual gifts. This particular day she was practicing going to Heaven with the group. This was her seventh time. She relates what happened:
“Everything was different and strange today. Like He was there… but not there. He was trying to get my attention but I was thinking about myself and what new thing we could do together. And He seemed so quiet and sad. I finally said, ‘I’m sorry. We shall do whatever You want to do.’ So, He took my hand and brought me to the balcony (of my Heavenly home) again and we sat on a beautiful wrought iron bench together. Buddy, my dog that has gone to Heaven, came running and jumped up on Him and was licking His face. I didn’t get it at the time, but then I realized that Buddy didn’t come to see ME…he was jumping all over Jesus. And not ‘I’m so excited to see you’ kind of jumping. Just ‘I love You and want to make whatever it is better for You’ kind. It dawned on me finally that he was trying to comfort Him.
On the other side of the bench, Jesus’ lion came to me and nuzzled me a bit. I petted his huge head and looked around for the other animals. But, the sadness pervaded everything. I finally realized how deeply Jesus is suffering right now. I looked over, and He was just sobbing, weeping.
He is about to unleash the final blow, the final thing that happens before we go Home.
I held Him, weeping, singing, ‘I Love You, Lord and I lift my voice; To worship You, oh my soul rejoice; Take Joy My King, in what You hear; may it be a sweet, sweet sound to Your ear.’ I looked up, and Abba Father came and together we put our arms around Him to bring Him love and comfort. I knelt before Him and lay my head on His hands and just prayed for a way to comfort Him… then we were called back together in class.”
(Clare resumes for herself) During my worship, He was sitting on a bench with His head down and weeping. It was as though there was a puddle of tears on the ground beneath Him. I worshipped and sang to Him and very little seemed to move Him. I went through all my Terry McAlmon songs, but nothing really had an effect.
Then I thought to myself, ‘I’ll try one of my songs, Wedding Day’ and as I played it He looked up at me and joined in singing the song to me. In this song, He sings to me and then I repeat it back to Him. In any case, that began to minister to Him for a short time… and then I lost sight of Him.
The other thing I want to share with you is the dream Ezekiel had around the same time I was in worship.
“I was out in a desert area where there was a single building, an open-air hanger for planes. It looked and felt like the southeastern California desert near El Centro. There were five of us standing inside the hanger to get out of the heat. We heard a noise and looked back to the west, and a large aircraft was coming towards us, flying low. The plane began to nose up and we could see the undercarriage had a large torpedo-shaped bomb attached to it. It released the bomb and flew out of sight. And suddenly, over some sand hills, we heard an enormous explosion and saw a huge red fireball. As soon as that happened, we heard the sound of several planes coming towards us and they began to fire at the hanger. We could see the bullets hitting the ground, they were strafing rounds all in a line. We were desperately looking for some way to hide as the planes continued to circle and fire at us. Miraculously, no one was hit and the planes flew away.”
In spite of all this, Jesus said that He’s coming immediately. Not soon, but NOW!
And He also said, “Linger, long and slow, dreamy and intoxicated in our Love for each other. You are My Beloved. You ARE MY BELOVED. YOU ARE SOOO MY BELOVED. And you have captured My Very Heart and Soul, My Very Being. You say that I am Your Regal Bridegroom and Your Majestic, Heavenly Spouse. I say that You are the Heart of My Heart, and the Very Life that Flows inside of it. You are My Beloved, My Bride, My Bright and Shining One, in whom all of My Deep Devotion, Love, and Affections reside, and whom I am so Very, Very Pleased with. You in whom I find All My Delight. I am so Happy at last, to Bring You into the Home of My Father.”
Jesus Teaches On Communion
July 30, 2015
The Lord’s Blessing is Truly with us, Youtube Family.
The Lord had a teaching about communion today. Before I start to share with you about what He had to say, I would ask that we don’t get into any strife or fighting or disagreement about who’s got the best communion and what’s valid and what’s not, and ‘pagan worship’ and what is not…all of that is just abhorrent to the Lord. He just has a simple message to His Bride today, and it’s about you receiving communion. It’s very, very important to Him, especially as our environment grows darker and darker, you need to be strengthened more and more.
And I’d like to say that, in MY life, receiving communion every day has been a tremendous strength for me, and a pivotal point in my conversion to the Lord. Even Smith Wigglesworth – a great revivalist – received communion every day. What a great testimony!
So, this is the way He wants to manifest to us and to strengthen His Bride for the journey, and to be One with Her – physically – through communion.
The Lord said, “I want to talk to you about Communion.”
Oh boy, that’s a touchy subject…kind of a ‘no go zone’, isn’t it? Since so many are at odds about what communion truly is.
“Haven’t I made Myself perfectly clear on this? At the very least seven times in the Scriptures?
“If you believe in your heart, and confess with your lips in all sincerity, I will be present to you in a miraculous way in communion. This IS My provided way, for the times you live in.”
And when He said that, I sensed what He was saying was, “This is not my ideal way, but this is the way I am providing for you, because the times are so evil.”
“I have already provided the Scriptures to convince any skeptic that I am truly present in the Bread and Wine. It may look like bread and wine, but nonetheless, I have chosen to be there with you, that you might be nourished for the journey.”
I’m going to be quoting from John chapter 6 quite a bit, because He did. But, I wanted to give you the address for the Scriptures so you could look at it yourself.
“There is absolutely no sense in arguing about the way different faiths approach the communion table. This channel is not for that purpose. But, all Christian faiths are agreed that I have declared, ‘This is My Body and My Blood.’ Their particular way of approaching the communion table may be different, though.
“But you, My Bride, must be nourished on My Body and My Blood as well. This is our point of physical union: the bread becomes a part of you physically, and because of that, you and I become One. You are fruitful and bear spiritual children, as well as being strengthened for the journey.
“If you are from a liturgical church and receive communion from a priest, make sure to reinforce the words –‘ truly, Jesus – this is Your Body, and truly – this is Your Blood’. In this way, any lack of intention due to the destruction of the church and the faith from the inside out will be accounted for and made up for in your confession. Yes, you will repair for any lack of faith by your deep reverence and the faith proclamation of your heart. I will honor the sincere prayer of faith.”
I think what the Lord is alluding to here is that, in this day and age there’s so many different kinds of ministers and priests, who when they say, “This is Your Body and Your Blood” – they don’t really mean it, they don’t really believe it. And what the Lord is saying is that, YOUR confession of faith, that it truly IS His Body and Blood…that it will make up the difference for their lack of faith.
“May I say, I ALWAYS honor the sincere prayer of faith, although I might not always answer it the way you wish. But, in matters of communion, I will.
“Not all of you will agree with Me. You have the right to disagree, but I would ask you to consider that these times in which you live, what seems to be the truth on the outside is sometimes lacking in internal form and this is to be considered in any church you receive communion.
“It is a Mystery of redemption and salvation, sanctifying you for all eternity.”
And then He quoted:
“I want each of you to design your own communion service using, the Last Supper as your guide. To the degree that you believe, to that degree I will be present to you.”
And, may I say also as an aside, I think that if you really believe that it is the Body and Blood of Jesus, that you ought to dispose of whatever is left over VERY respectfully. Rinse it off and put it in a plant, dissolve it in water and then pour it into a plant or somewhere where it won’t be tread upon. Certainly, don’t feed it (leftover bread) to the birds! Dispose of it very, very respectfully, not putting it down the drain, but pouring it on a plant or someplace special.
“As things become darker and darker, I want to strengthen you completely in every possible way. The reception of My Body and Blood is one of many ways, but profoundly important to Me.”
“For those of you who come from a tradition, continue to receive communion as you do. But, if that should ever be brought to an end through persecution, have your own private service in reverence and faith and I will be present to you in a special way.
“I long to be received into the heart of My Bride. I long to share this communion with you. I long that we should be One in every possible way. Do not deny Me access to your bodies through communion. Do not abstain from receiving Me because you have fallen. It is the sick that need communion the most. First, confess to Me what you have done, sincerely from the heart repenting, and then you may receive.
“I want you to follow the conviction of your hearts. If you receive from a priest, continue to receive, remembering to confess in faith My presence. If you receive at a non-liturgical church, continue to do so as long as your conscience bears witness – but, be sure to confess in faith My presence.
“There is so much the many denominations teach that is error, and because of men’s egos, the Truth – for now – shall only be known in Heaven. Do not let a Religious spirit dominate your thinking on this. Do not bicker over traditions. May I say, I hate your bickering. It is filthy vomit in My eyes. Do you know it is better to be silent and maintain the bond of brotherhood and love than to dissemble and contend with one another? What was ever accomplished by that, but enmity.
“For your information, I will reveal truth to you in your conscience but you are not to force it upon anyone else and say ‘I am of Paul, his way is better. I am of Peter, no! His way is better!’ Do you see how foolish you are in the sight of the angels? Rather pray for one another that the truth will prevail and the rest I shall do in My Own Timing.
“In the meantime, love one another as I have loved you.”
Song: John Michael Talbot, “The Bread of Life”
Jesus Teaches on Discernment
December 12, 2014
Here’s the message that I just promised you in the previous video, and, to fill you in on what was going on when I received this message, the last few days I’ve been assaulted with accusations that I’m not hearing from the Lord but from a demon. It hasn’t been a clear-cut accusation; just a subtle hint…an undercurrent…a quiet questioning.
The Lord began, “I want you to be totally at rest, like a child on her mother’s lap.”
‘Is this really you, Lord?’
I’ve been plagued with this fear all of my Christian life, and one reason I have is because I came from the New Age. I had to make the change from The New Age to becoming a Christian. Believe me, the last thing in the world that I wanted was to be able to speak to the Lord, in the sense that I was so afraid that I’d be deceived. That’s a little background on why I’m so cautious.
As I came to sit down to praise and worship, I immediately saw my handsome Jesus, dancing with me, with a twinkle in His eyes. My Spirit just leapt inside of me! I just knew it was the Lord! He smiled and said,
“You can’t deny it’s Me now, can you?”
And, no, I couldn’t. I knew, indeed, that it was Him! We danced for a very long time. But I grew weary of the music. It became noisy and ‘in the way,’ so I turned it off and sat, quietly, and I pulled a card from my daily rhema Box. It said, “Oh, how wonderful! Oh, how marvelous, is my Savior’s love for me.”
By the way, I encourage all of you to make your own daily rhema Box – it’s like a Daily Bread box, an index card box, and in it on index cards, you can write down the Scriptures that the Lord’s given you, the Prophecies, the Promises, and all kinds of things. Just put all of the cards in that little box, and when you’re high and dry, and you just can’t connect with the Lord, and you can’t hear Him, and you feel like saying, “Where are you, God?” Go and get three cards from your rhema Box. Pray to the Holy Spirit first, and bind any Lying Spirits from the cards in the Name of Jesus, and then pull three cards from your rhema Box. That will give you a really good reading on where you are, and it will really help you to ‘pull out of the ditch,’ and to trust the Lord.
Truly, He was there, before me, smiling, and He said, “All I want from you, Clare, is to receive My love.”
He began crying. “It has taken Me so long to get you to accept my love. Please, please, don’t turn Me away. And, by the way, every one of those messages was from Me. Every single one.”
Lord, I still have doubts about Iran. Why would you give me that message?
“Didn’t I show you Obama, long before he was even visible or elected?”
Yes, that’s true.
I’d had a dream and a vision, before he was elected, and when he was giving his acceptance speech, I immediately recognized him as the man in my dream that the Lord had shown me, something like seven years before.
Anyway…just then, one of my cats came in and meowed at me, wanting to be picked up, so I lifted her up onto my lap and arranged her so that she’d be comfortable. She didn’t budge; she just settled in while I petted her.
“You see? I want you to be just like her. When I come to hold you, melt in My arms, and fall into the deep place of trust. Rest, and receive the love I long to shower on you; the love that transforms all of your wounds into beacons of light, that can touch others with My healing power. I long so much to be totally received by you, and all My creatures. But they’re so fearful; so scrupulous; so afraid of going astray, and hearing from a dark spirit, rather than their God. How I wish they would trust Me more.”
But Lord, you do allow deception.
“Every time I have allowed it, I have also delivered you from it and clarified I allowed it and restored you, haven’t I?”
Yes, Lord, you have, but that’s why I’m so cautious. I suspect much greater pride lurks within me than you’ve allowed me to see. And so, I’m afraid of being deceived.
“I have no argument for that, My love.”
Only… even if He slays me, still will I love Him. Oh boy!
“You must be willing to be wounded for your own good. You must trust that I will not let you go far, before I correct you. And you do have a Covering.”
That would be my husband. I’m very careful with my Covering, to make sure that anything that I get is from the Lord, because the last thing that I want to do is be deceived or to deceive others. That’s the last thing I want.
“So, you can trust me, Clare, to provide you with accurate information, as long as your charity and humility are intact and growing. You mustn’t ever let yourself grow lax in charity, or get ‘too big for your britches.’”
And I’d add here that not relying upon the discernment of your Covering, in some ways, puts you in that position of being ‘too big for your britches.’ I think that I’ve mentioned before – if you’ve seen my other videos – that if you don’t have a Covering, you can use a Rhema Box; you can use a little book called The Bible Promises Book, and pray to the Holy Spirit, and ask, “Is this the Lord I’m talking to?”
I’ll tell you guys, I do this every day. You can laugh, and you can accuse me of ‘Bible Roulette;’ I don’t care. It works! The Lying Spirits get shown up for what they are when I use The Bible Promise Book. There are times the Lord allows me to be tested one step further, and I have to bind Lying spirits off The Bible Promises, but He does reveal the truth. He uses the Rhema Box, and He uses The Bible Promises, and readings from Scripture.
“You mustn’t get lax in charity or ‘too big for your britches.’ I try to pull you down and back in line gently. I can’t help it if your pride causes you to overreact to My corrections. Sooner or later you will come to the point where you can tolerate it without becoming despondent, or rebellious, as you always do. Besides, what about that little flutter in your conscience that tells you something is not right? Are you listening to that? Yes, you have been listening, but be a little quicker to obey, when you hear that flutter. Keep your conscience clean. Always keep your conscience clean, and you will have very little to worry about in the realm of discernment. It is only when you stubbornly grab the bit in your teeth, and take off in your own direction, despite your husband’s warning. But I must let you learn the harder lessons.”
“This is an ongoing lesson, My Beloved. This is the fine art of discernment, and the more you abandon the purse of your own opinion, and renounce your own self-will, the easier it will become for you. But, for now, I am indeed holding you, and how wonderful it is, to have you in my arms; to see your tears of love; to hear your heart so eager for My words and so willing to obey. All of this is stunningly beautiful to Me and the very joy of My heart. Please, oh please, never give this up! You are so dear to Me! I am so comforted by you, and I derive great consolation from your love for Me, Clare. Great Consolation! And as you can see, there is so much suffering I must endure from My creatures.
“My heart needs the tender love of all My Brides.”
Jesus Speaks on Bitterness:
Why Does God Allow Suffering?
June 1, 2015
Well, I have something truly, truly amazing to share with you tonight.
I want to begin by saying that, I was watching Jesse Duplantis the other night, and he was talking about how souls would come out of the Father’s heart. He would just put His hand in His bosom, and draw out a soul – and the soul would cry out, “I want to be redeemed! I want to be redeemed! Can I go to Earth? Can I go to Earth?” This was something he experienced – we’re pretty sure – in the physical when he was transported to Heaven. And if you haven’t heard that sharing of his, or read his book, I would highly recommend it. It’s absolutely incredible. And it confirms everything that we know about Heaven as well.
So, I’m going to go ahead and get into this message, and allow the Lord to do what He does the best – which is instruct us.
“Gratefulness. Gratefulness opens the door for greater blessings. Greater and greater blessings. With gratefulness comes power, the power to loose and unleash the fetters both on yourselves and on others. When a bitter spirit is standing in the way, there is bondage. But remove the bitter spirit and healing can take place.
“There are so many, Clare, with a bitter spirit in the way of Me being able to work in their lives. Things happen in the lives of souls that they do not understand, so they blame Me and become bitter. It is true that ultimately I could have prevented what happened, but it is also true that things happen for a reason. Reasons the minds of men cannot fathom. For instance, there are those souls who, had they succeeded in their intended destiny, would have ended their lives going to Hell. But because I allowed an intervention it totally changed the course of their lives. They cannot see it, and so they become bitter.”
But… won’t that bitterness take them to Hell as well, Lord?
“It can if someone doesn’t intervene. But, I literally move Heaven and Earth to bring someone across their path that changes their whole attitude, many times at the very end of their lives, when it is their last chance. Not that I don’t try earlier! But some are so hardened and obstinate that it takes facing death to realize their mistaken attitude.
“Oh, My precious ones, so many, many times worse things were headed your way and I withstood the devils on your behalf. You were not walking with Me, you didn’t know Me or even care to know Me, but I protected you anyway. You see, when you live by My rules, love Me, and serve Me, you live within the confines of the corral of safety. But when you break down the fence and take off into the wilderness, you tie My hands. However, even then I relent and over-rule My norms to protect you, because I love you and I know you don’t understand what you are doing. I approach you year after year after year to turn you from your selfish and blind paths, and you ignore me year after year, blithely skipping down the path of your own fancies.
“Then you get to the end of your life and start to think about things, looking back on mistakes, wondering when death approaches where you will finally end up. Even then, you try to reason away the things others have warned you with; you choose different religions and say that is your way. But in the stillness of the night, phantoms arise and taunt you with the truth… and you begin to wonder.
“Oh, I do try SO hard to turn your disposition, because I know where it is taking you and that I will never see you again. I will grieve for you. I will hear your screams from Hell, but I won’t be able to do anything for you made your eternal decision in spite of everything I did to turn your heart back to Me.
“And for you who know Me, it is time now for you to examine your hearts and search for hidden traces of bitterness, or even pools of bitterness hidden in the caverns of your heart. Is there something you cannot forgive Me for? Is there something you say you have forgiven Me for, but you still hold resentment in your heart that I treated you so unfairly?”
Lord, I struggle with a few issues…the family I was born into, for one.
“I know that, My love, and I am very sorry your parents made such foolish decisions. I certainly could not sway them, but in the end I knew the choices they would make. And I apologize to you for sending you into such a family. But may I say, when you get here, you will thank Me for that?”
Lord, in my right mind I thank you for it even now. Yes, even now I see things you gave Me through my parents and it wasn’t all bad. And after all, you did overcome me in my searchings and save me. So, what have I to complain about? I could be going to Hell for the way I lived.
“All that you say is true, My Beloved. But, look now how far you have climbed up the ladder of grace out from the deep, deep pit that gave birth to you. Look how you have taken My hand and risen up into the realms of glory with Me. Surely that is to be rejoiced over.”
It is quite amazing and I have to say I do feel fulfilled and happy in what You have chosen for me, and how far you’ve brought me into this destiny.
“Oh, and that is only the beginning. I didn’t say from glory to glory without reason.”
“Oh, My children. If you could see from My perspective what you have triumphed over in the kingdom of darkness. If only you could see the amazing obstacles, powers, dominions, and enemies you have triumphed over, you would be so very appreciative, happy and satisfied. But, not until you are here with Me will you be able to see from My perspective the great victories you have won.
“Still, it is most important in this hour that you examine every tiny crevice of your heart and find yourself out, if there is still bitterness for what I have allowed. Can you trust Me with that? Can you trust that what I allowed in your life was for the best? Now that you know Me, you know My nature, My love that didn’t stop at being cruelly executed for you – now that you know that, can you trust Me and thank Me for your life, all the good and all the bad?
“Oh, I am imparting this grace tonight as we speak. Yes, I am imparting wisdom not of this world, wisdom from the highest realms. My wisdom and grace to be able to thank Me for what I allowed and what I did not allow, for what I gave and what I withheld, for what I took and never replaced. All of it – good and bad – you will see served a purpose, accomplished great good and in some cases leveled the playing field and cancelled the debt so you wouldn’t be consigned to Hell from your very own decisions.
“I have spoken of this to Clare before. Many, many souls born into squalor and dying prematurely made the decision to come to Earth and suffer in this way because they longed to be redeemed from among mankind. You, at this time, cannot understand what it means in Heaven to be among the redeemed….”
Lord, you are such a communicator that surely you can help us to understand why in the world a soul would allow themselves to be born into one of those bodies that is destined to die from AIDs, or destined to be raped and killed. Lord, please tell us in a way we can understand.
“You are asking for a great deal, Clare. I will try. You are not going to explain it to yourself in your logical mind. As I have told you before, your intellect and pride get in the way My Dearest.”
Ok. I’m sorry.
[_ "I hear and see what you are thinking. ‘If I don't get it right I can just delete this section’. Shame on you! And your trust?? Where has it taken off to?" _]
Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief…
“Oh, My Darling Clare, nothing is beyond Me. But many things are beyond you because you cannot see as I see…you are still looking through a glass darkly.”
Lord, are you saying You won’t explain it to us after all?
“I should spank you for thinking that.”
Oh, please don’t. You always get me where I live.
“In the chocolate bar?”
Please, don’t tell them how bad I am.
“Alright, then. Imagine a little bug, a lady bug…crawling along slowly on the ground. Now, imagine a bird coming by and catching up that little bug.”
So far, I have a lady bug and a crow.
“Ok, now imagine the perspective the lady bug has…and then imagine the perspective the crow has….”
Lord, there’s no comparison!
“That’s correct. There’s no comparison until the bird picks the lady bug up and flies off with it. Then the lady bug can see as the crow sees.”
“It is the realms of awareness, between the two….”
“Come on! You asked, and now you don’t want to see the answer?”
Lord, you know how I am.
“Sadly, Thomas… I do.”
OK, is that any way to treat your frail Bride?
“Is that anyway to treat your loving Jesus who continually instructs you, faithfully?”
No. I’m sorry.
“Alright then, tell them the answer, Clare.”
The Ladybug experiences Your love as she crawls along the ground, through every little grain of sand etc., in a very, very limited way. But, when she is picked up in the crow’s beak, she suddenly sees everything there is to see.
“Exactly! When a soul is in Heaven, they do not experience the depravity of Earth and sin, so they can’t possibly appreciate what they have. But when they’ve been subjected to the utter darkness of sinful men, and are lifted up and out of it, their awareness of how they are loved by Me is suddenly expanded beyond all boundaries and they experience the very extraordinary bliss of My Being and My Love for them.”
That is positively amazing! When You talk to me I usually pick up on Your thoughts and put them into words. But this example, I was totally mystified by every image… I didn’t get it until the very end. Kind of like falling backwards into Your waiting arms which I can’t see – I just have to trust.
“Yes, I have to talk to you sometimes this way, because the line of thought and where I am going is totally out of your reality. Like those events I warned you would be part of the Tribulation…the strange creatures, etc.”
“So, I have already blessed you tonight by imparting wisdom not of this world, wisdom from the highest Realms. My wisdom and grace to be able to thank Me for what I allowed and what I did not allow, for what I gave and what I withheld, for what I took and never replaced. All of it good and bad, you will see it served a purpose.”
So, in essence: those of us who got the rawest deal will experience the very greatest depths of Your Love?
“Yes, My Love, now you see it! Those who are forgiven much, shall love much, and shall see the enormity of My Love. The Greater the knowledge of darkness, the greater the appreciation of the Light! I bless you all again, now. Take your time with this, it is quite deep and a challenge to understand. But this night I have imparted the grace to understand as you listen.
“The greater the sorrow and bitterness you’ve experienced in this life on Earth, the more grateful you will be in Heaven and the more bliss and joy you will experience for eternity.”
Waiting On The Turn Key Event
April 2, 2015
The Lord bless you with His sweet presence, Youtube family.
The Lord’s message to me tonight was, well…what can I say? Stretching my vocabulary? He used some expressions and some words that I’d never heard before. So, it was a little bit of a challenge – I had to stop and use Wikipedia several times just to understand what He was trying to tell me. Of course, I could have ASKED Him what He was trying to tell me, but I thought that it would be neat to get the definition out of Wiki and then be able to read it to you.
I was worshipping to Terry MacAlmon’s song, “How long? How long ‘till we are like You, ‘till we awake in Your likeness?” (song: “How Long?”) which is really about the Rapture. And it’s a beautiful, passionate song. I used it to pray for US, for this beautiful Youtube family that is waiting for the Lord so ardently. And it was a really beautiful way to pray. And then there was another song about the Rapture, “Even So.” It’s about the Bride, and taking the Bride away.
I noticed that the Lord – this was after a couple hours of worship – the Lord was to my right, where He always is. And in the Scriptures, even, it talks about ‘the Lord is at my right hand’ in several places. But He was at my right, and He was pointing to His right. I looked, and I saw a long row…a long wave, I guess I could say. A sweeping army of warriors looking very much like Roman soldiers, I mean completely decked out and equipped for war. And they were galloping towards the Earth from space. He, our Lord, was astride a white horse, but He was stationary beside me, showing it to me.
He said, “I’m coming, I’m on My way.”
“There is a turn-key event, that is what we are waiting for.” They seemed to be between the Moon and the Earth when He said this. And they were at a stop.
‘Turnkey. I wonder what that means.’ Turn. Key. It seems like it would be fairly simple. But, I decided to look it up.
Turnkey: The word references a product that is completely ready. All you have to do is turn the key to make it operational.
“As you can see, we are all equipped and ready for the battle. Clare, there is just one event pending, that is the turn-key. Everything is already prepared and ready. In order for it to begin, the key must be turned. Be patient, My Love. We are so very, very close. Hope will not disappoint, be patient.
“I know you are trying. I know you are also being buffeted and you know I will use your suffering for your children’s conversions.”
Yes, what one of my children said to me… well it really surprised me and encouraged.
“She’s been thinking about this for a long time. The only problem is that it will be too late, she will have to stay behind. However, that could change. There is yet a narrow window of time, but it is so narrow and short.”
This brings up the topic of another revival. I’m getting questions about another revival before You come. And that’s really hard for me, because it seems You’ve already answered me on this question.
“I am very sorry but that is wishful thinking. Please don’t wobble, this expresses doubt and unbelief on your part.”
I’m sorry. It’s been hounding me, Jesus.
“It’s been hounding everyone. These doubts come in waves and sweep over everyone who is waiting for me. You can be sure that what you are experiencing is universal to those who are earnestly waiting for My coming. In other words, you are not alone in this. This is why when I give you a post, immediately it soothes the hearts of so many.
“These things are broadcast so to speak. Sent out at large, ‘in the air’.”
What is their source?
“Need you ask?”
I mean human or demonic.
“Either way it is what is behind it, but to answer you, demonic. Although mood alterations are also applied by man through electronic devices to sow confusion, anger and depression. This is why communing with Me is so important. This is why so much effort was put into developing a technology that would modify the brain in such a way that the person would lose interest in all things spiritual. This has been a benchmark breakthrough.”
There He goes again – giving me one of those words I have no idea what they mean. So, I Wiki-ed that and the best that I could tell, in the context of what He was saying, is a benchmark is a point of reference, as in surveying. Wiki said that: “Benchmarking is a powerful method for breakthrough thinking, innovation, and improvement, and for delivering exceptional bottom-line results.”
So, I kind of played around with those words for a minute, and I finally came up with this sentence:
“In other words, this technology breakthrough will deliver the bottom line results of dulling or even destroying man’s desire for God.”
Then I heard: “Simulated intelligence,” another word I didn’t know. When I Wiki-ed it and got directed to Artificial Intelligence, which I’ve heard some things about, but I haven’t gotten into very deeply – I don’t have time.
“My Love, that is the science that developed this evil technology. It is commonly thought to be good for religious fanatics, terrorists, etc. But as usual, man found a more evil and practical application in mind control.”
Lord, once a person is infected with this will you over-ride it?
“In some situations, yes. But generally speaking if it is received voluntarily with full understanding of the result produced, most likely, no, I will not over-ride it. This is the technology to be used in the ‘mark.’ Although, it has been distributed widely through other programs, unknown to those who have been victimized. In these cases especially, I will interrupt the device’s ability to turn the mind away from Me.
“It is so treacherous, Clare, so very treacherous and widespread as inoculations have been carriers even to children in schools. But I would like to move on.”
I was thinking for a moment (I was getting a little ditzy – I mean, it’s 5:17 in the morning, it’s getting to be that time to get to bed…) Lord, can you do something with my mind so I can receive Your thoughts more easily ?
“I already have.”
Can you do even more?
“There are some thoughts you wouldn’t want to receive, My Love.”
OK. Never mind…. But… couldn’t you filter them, Lord? (I wasn’t about to give up on that one!)
“I love your sense of curiosity and your desire to be pleasing to Me. And yes, I will clarify My thoughts even more in the short time left to you on Earth, but you must promise Me that you will pay more attention when I am speaking to you in My thoughts.”
Okay. With Your help, I will try.
“As you are waiting for this turn-key event, I want you to encourage everyone to maintain their vigil time with Me apart from all worldly preoccupations and entertainments. We are getting SO close. There is the tendency to relax vigilance – and please, please dear Brides, don’t relax your vigilance.
“In your dealings with others, bend over backwards to show mercy, clemency and charity. These are the attributes of My dear ones. Some of you have the resources to alleviate the sufferings of those whose paths you come across. When I send you someone, or arrange a situation where you are passing them by, stop and give aid as your resources allow. Then you will be like My Father in Heaven who rains upon the land of the just and unjust alike, but Who especially looks after those who cannot look after themselves. Kindness preaches volumes to the unsaved and lifts the spirits of those without hope.
“Yes, do tell others that I am coming, but guard your heart with those who have scorn and contempt for Me. I do not want you to be discouraged. If you become discouraged, how will you encourage others? The enemy would like to place ugly situations in your way – be on the look-out for opportunities to denigrate you or Me.”
And be careful, when you get involved with people, to understand where they are coming from. Be careful in the situations that you’re in, with relatives or whatever, to guard your words and guard your heart. Don’t just throw it all out there so you end up getting resistance and contempt. Guard your heart. Be careful who you share these things with.
“Watching is by no means an easy occupation, it demands a very high level of faith and hope. These I impart to you in our times together. I will use every means to touch you, My Beloved Ones, even bumper stickers and traffic jams. There is not one moment of the day that I am not bringing some encouragement across your path, because I know your frame and for those of you that must be involved in the world, little tell-tale signs of My love abound. When the clock reads 3:11 or 11:13, or 555 the number of my wounds, or 444 the number of the Gospels, or 3:33, or even 1:11. All of these are little nudges that I am with you. Seems silly, doesn’t it?”
Not at all, Lord, we cherish those little signs from You! I even enjoy it when you put my birth month and year on the clock, I kind of chuckle to myself, “He’s thinking of me.”
“Yes, and even love songs you hear, more often than not I am singing them in My heart to you. Or you can sing them in your heart to Me. I love it when you do.”
Really? I wasn’t sure about that.
You know, when He said that I realized, when I’m in the grocery store – usually on the Baking Aisle…the sugar and the chocolate chips and the things that I just love – even when I’m there, I’ll hear a song that’s a love song and think to myself, ‘Lord? Did You play that just for me? Are You singing that to me?’ And I’ll assume that He has, because He’s omnipresent, and of course He knows that love song is playing, and He knows how He feels about me. And I know how I feel about Him, so I just turn it around and sing it to Him in my heart.
“A sign or exclamation of love from My Bride goes right to the core of My Being and brings Me deep joy. I love it, Clare, when you sing those songs to Me.
“Pay attention!” (I was getting a little droopy…)
“Pay attention! I know you’re tired, but I’m trying to make a point here. Truly, Clare. I love that, I am so touched.
“These are lovers games: leaving flowers behind, drawing a heart in the sand or on your windshield or back car window – I see it, it touches My heart and I will leave you little heart shapes, especially when you are preparing food. Look for them and acknowledge Me. I am so happy when you are grateful for My marks of affection to you. I’m so grateful when you recognize them!”
So many souls go right by them, and it never reaches or touches them.
“Well, I can see you won’t last much longer…try to come to Me earlier in the evening and expect Me to begin speaking to you in this way. Earlier in the evening. OK?”
OK, Lord. You know about my short-term memory loss. Remind me, please?
“Sleep in My arms, dear Brides. I am ALWAYS with you, ALWAYS.”
I have to say, when I lay down to take a nap, or I go to sleep – I see Him there very quickly. That’s one time I just don’t have any problem seeing Him. I sleep next to the wall, and I see Him even closer to the wall, not laying down totally, but kind of laying back and smiling at me. And He always reaches out for my hand, and holds my hand. Sometimes He sends one of my cats with a paw, and they take my finger and they curl their little paws around my finger to pull it closer to their heart, and it is so sweet to see that. I just know it’s a sign of love from the Lord’s creation and ultimately He’s behind it.
Well, I hope these things encourage you in our watching and our waiting and vigils. My prayers are for you, and I really encourage you to find that song by Terry MacAlmon, “Even So” and use it for your prayer times. It’s so beautiful, and so “right on” for right now, so on target.
“Even So” Terry MacAlmon
Come Lord Jesus come
Take your bride away
How my soul
Longs to be with you my Lord

The Last Stains On Your Wedding Gowns
May 1, 2015
The Lord had quite an extensive message about Love.
“Let’s talk about love. Do you think we can exhaust the topic of love?”
Surely not, Lord.
“Love works in many different ways that many do not realize. It is an act of love and an act of mercy to pardon someone when they’ve said something to hurt you. To take up a reproach to them is not love – to overlook their fault, that is love. To correct someone when it really isn’t necessary is not love either. To find fault with others is not love. To degrade or humiliate others is not love.
“Love overlooks the shortcomings of others because she knows she has even worse faults that others overlook in her. Love sympathizes with the downtrodden, not adding more accusations against them. She sees that her fate could change tomorrow and she could be in that very same place. Love does not point the finger when someone falls. Rather she sees herself in that very same predicament and that tomorrow could be her turn.
“My Brides, if you secretly rejoice when someone has fallen, you have not love. I know you try to control yourself outwardly but inwardly you are rejoicing that fate finally caught up with someone who has been a thorn in your side for a long time.”
Oh Lord, you are reading my mail.
“Yes, I know Beloved, you have not loved as I wished for you to love. Yet there is still a little time to show true concern without secret glee that someone has finally bit the dust. It isn’t any easier when that someone is a rival or openly critical of you. I want you to consider well, Daughters, that God is not deaf, dumb and blind and He can and will read the hidden thoughts of your hearts. That is where I need you to change from.
“Way down deep inside. Way, way, way down deep inside. Not just a cosmetic ‘I feel so badly for that person.’ But a true, heartfelt grief for their embarrassment. One way to feel this is to genuinely reach out to them, offer them a helping hand, and of course, pray for their recovery.
“You know well how painful it is when I am dealing with you about pride. Love looks at another and feels their pain and wants nothing more than to take it off their shoulders. Which ‘we’ cannot do, because the lesson must go deep to make its mark and change. How many times I have wanted to reach out and comfort one of my children who has gone severely astray, but I couldn’t or the lesson wouldn’t stick. Rather, I have to step back and allow time to etch the lesson into their hearts so it will never happen again. So that at the next opportunity, they will pass the test. This is very, very, painful for Me. And yet I am bound by responsibility to step back and allow time to wash over the soul until it is deeply engraved.
“If you would be perfect, if you would be a suitable spouse for Me, your hearts must be conformed to Mine. You must grieve when I grieve, and love when I love. There is no greater sign of your love for Me than the way you respond to your brother or sister when they are in trouble.”
Oh Lord, I can see there is still wickedness in my heart. Please Lord, tell me how I can change that?
“You have been doing it all along Clare. Put yourself in their shoes.”
Yes, I have. It’s very painful.
“That will accomplish two things closely related: charity and humility. Continue to look at the good in others and the shortcomings in yourself. This is the great balancing beam – your faults, their virtues. When you discipline your mind to take this approach, you draw near to the Kingdom of Heaven. And conversely, when you dote on their faults and your virtues, the kingdom of darkness draws nigh unto you.
“These are satan’s thoughts. The accuser, putting down others, exalting oneself. When you think that way, you think as he does. That should be enough right there to frighten you away from this kind of conduct. Wickedness draws in and entertains wickedness. Virtue attracts virtue.
“My Children, when you are taken up with the faults and shortcomings of others, you are inviting a serious fall. You are also causing Me to withdraw a distance from you and oppose you even in your ‘holy’ undertakings. For truly, how holy is an undertaking when underneath the surface you are seething with jealousy and fault-finding and even spreading it to others? Do you think anything you undertake with that heart is pleasing to Me? Well, you are right. It isn’t.
“But even a little one, very little, meek and honoring others, even the little that these do is pleasing to Me because the motive is love.
“If love is not the motive, whatever you undertake will burn in the purifying fires. It matters not how astute, educated, well researched, and presented – if it isn’t done with love as the primary motive, it will burn in the fire. That is why so many who have gone to Heaven have discovered a housewife sitting on a throne, while the famous evangelists are walking in the outer courts or even outer reaches of Heaven without a reward. Her only motive in what she was doing was love for Me and for her brother. Whereas that famous one’s motive was pride, influence, fame and vying to correct others. These habits are abhorrent to Me and the saints in Heaven. So, it matters not how sublime their discoveries, if the vessel is corrupt it will not be counted to them as righteousness.
“It is so much better for you to know these things now than to find out in that final hour. For if you repent, your sin will be washed away, never to be found. Your deeds done under that influence will not precede you into Heaven, but your new efforts done with the proper heart, will.
“So much is lacking in understanding of how Heaven judges the things of men. Rivalry and competition have no place in Heaven. I’m looking to crown the souls of those who truly see themselves as less than their brother – souls that are always taking the seat furthest back, souls that make others look good while they themselves step back into the shadows. Rivalry is detestable.”
Oh Lord, I see there is leaven in me, please help me. I am so ashamed of myself.
“Yes, I will help you, and I, too, am disappointed with these hidden attitudes. The more I lavish on a soul, the littler they should become, otherwise I cannot trust them with more – and even what they have may work to their downfall.”
Jesus, I am making my mind up here and now, I want no part of that sin. Please, Lord, help me overcome myself.
“My Daughter, that is what your journey on this Earth has been all about. These are the finishing touches, the final tests of how truly you love Me, how ingrained with Me your thinking is: how perfectly you love others, that you never want to see them downgraded, but always to see them advanced and that you find your joy in their advancement while you remain on the same level. These are hard tests, but very necessary. But all must pass them if they would overcome their flesh.
“Someday, someday, you will arrive at this place. Someday.”
Sooner than later, I pray.
“That’s up to you My love, the graces are there waiting in the wings. All that is needed is a firm purpose of amendment and refusing to do anything that is not charitable.
“All of you are insecure, all of you feel that you need to be affirmed. Many of you had devastating childhoods and it’s taken you all these years to get a grip on yourself. Others were spoiled as children and their struggle is even more severe. Just remember, this is not about downgrading you and exalting others, for no one has more worth than the Blood I shed on the Cross. That is your net worth, if you want to judge as the world judges. Not one of you is loved more than another. I love each of you and see you fulfilled becoming who I created you to be. Yes, I get more pleasure from seeing a soul who is victorious in their life, but I don’t love them any more for it. I love the failures just as much. It saddens Me to see the foolish course they have chosen for their lives. It truly grieves me.
“So, all I am saying to you, My Brides, is look deeper; look in My mirror, seek approval from Me alone. Do not turn and compare yourselves to others, this is satan’s tactic to turn you from the path of virtue. Instead, allow Holy Spirit to reveal these diseased places in your souls and allow Me to heal you with My love.
“Take this to heart now, My Loves, take it to heart and turn over a new leaf. I am taking you to Heaven soon and these are some of the very last stains on your gowns.
“I love you, I will work with you and for you. Rely on Me to help you, do not attempt to do this on your own. I am in this moment imparting to each of you the grace to stand before Me. Work with it.”
Well, that certainly is a challenging teaching, but one that is absolutely necessary for us in this final hour.
I just wanted to end this with the Scriptures from I Corinthians 13:
[+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ , and if I+][+ ][+ ]
[+Love[+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ ][+ , ][+ ][+ ]
[+Love never fails.
Let’s pray for each other – I think this is an area we all need to grow in a little.
God bless you.
Rope of Grace
July 17, 2015
The Lord bless you, dear Family. This has been an interesting week – I’ve been doing a lot of things around the house, and kinda getting things in order because I had permission to…including the yard and all of that. And, I guess I’ve kinda gotten into “nesting”. (Anyone who’s ever been pregnant can tell you about nesting.) It’s gotten to the point where it’s starting to distract me, and pull me away from the Lord. I really, really need to bring it to a close.
Jesus had addressed that first thing, as I was rather lamenting to Him.
He said, “I know how you are feeling. These are warning signs that you need to call a halt soon. Do what you can this week, then refocus with all your heart on Me, My Precious Angel. You will recover and recuperate – just get it done now.”
And then I addressed what’s been on my mind pretty constantly for the last two days:
Lord, everyone is asking about Jade Helm and especially me. Oh, You know how bad my curiosity is!
“I know how much I love you and steer you away from curiosities. Listen, My Love. You will know what you need to know when you need to know it.”
That sounds like a circular answer.
“That’s correct, it leads right back to Me. Your focus must be on Me constantly. Not only is there misinformation out there, but demons of fear and intrigue that want to steal your attention away from Me and onto fear and useless fretting. I want your head in the clouds…is that clear?”
No, Lord, it’s cloudy….
“No, seriously, I want you about My business and not about the business of the world. Over and over again I have told you this. I know it’s painful, I know your curiosity is burning you up, but if you put it to death it will leave you alone.”
Are You sure Lord, I mean…everyday it grows stronger.
“That’s because you let it. You feed it. I have promised you, you will know what you need to know when you need to know it. Until then, I want you to proceed like you don’t have a care in the world but being about My business. Can you do that for Me, Beloved? Please?”
Lord, I know You are giving me the Grace. I need it. By Your Grace Lord, I can do it.
“What people want to know is how to protect themselves…that’s My job. Their job is to keep their eyes on Me, and because they do, because they honor Me with all their hearts, I will rescue them.”
“In the meantime, there are suffering souls that need the light to shine on their darkness so they may be lifted up to Me. Many are the sufferings of the lost and My heart is to bring them salvation from their enemies, and from themselves.
“Deep and dark is the pit they have dug for themselves. As the saying goes, ‘If you want to get out of the pit, stop digging’. I say stop sinning and take hold of the rope of Grace. I am lowering it now into your life. Come forth out of this pit, this deep darkness and let the sun shine all around you. I have a new life in Me to give you. This life will be full of gifts and challenges, but it will not be fruitless as your former lives have been. No, this life will bring you the peace you have never had, a sense of purpose, a sense of destiny that speaks to the very core of your being. Yes, I have waited for you. I have waited, holding all these gifts for that special day when you will forsake yourself, and come to Me.
“You have nothing to fear. All you have ever wanted is waiting for you in this new life. Yes, you will have to undergo preparation, but nothing will be in vain, as were the things in your former life. Even though you learned what not to do, still there was a sense of futility and lost-ness. Not so anymore. You will belong to Me and be My own special possession. Mine to love and to hold and to care for as I mold you into the glorious creation I meant you to be. Things you have struggled with will fall away, things you have longed for will embrace you.
“Do not be afraid to lay your life down for Me. I am your safety and your refuge. I will turn everything you ever experienced in your life around for the good. You will see that even when you thought I had abandoned you, even when you thought I didn’t exist, still I was with you through it all. You will reflect on all the times I called to you and you walked away. Yes, there were many, many, many times I tried to get your attention. You walked away, and I waited, knowing that someday you would give up on yourself and embrace Me and I would shower My Love on you.
“So, here we are again, and you sense that it is imperative that you finally receive Me into your life. And yes, it is imperative. You will not be able to navigate the rough waters ahead, but I will. Allow Me to take the helm as we dodge the reefs and the sharks. Let Me bring you to the safe haven I have planned for you. Your journey may be long, but you will see that it was so worth it in the end. You will find that your life has become brighter than noon day and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to come to Me.
“Eye has not seen, ear has not heard the wonders I have prepared for you. We are going to do this together. You will never walk alone again. I will teach you how to grasp My hand in every situation and when you can’t reach out to Me, I will lift you up into my arms and carry you. You see, I have planned this from the very day you were conceived. I began making preparations for your Homecoming that very day. I knew you would stray and be taken captive by the enemy, so I planned the sortie that would rescue you from his hands.
“I have also woven beautiful garments of righteousness for you. You will be clothed in grace and beauty, and from within you will shine as the dawning sun. Oh yes, I have wonderful things in store for you. Once we begin walking on this path, you will never want to return to your former life. You will see how wretched and dreary it was and you’ll want nothing to do with it. Besides, you will be so taken up in your new life you won’t have time for the past. I will wash you so clean that nothing of your former life will cling to you. No, each day you will bathe in My grace and all those things will fall away. Yes, even the scales on your eyes, they are coming off – you are going to see the world with eyes of wonder. Everywhere you look, the freshness of the dawning day will surround you.
“Come now, take My hands. Let Me look deeply into your eyes. There is no more shame in you, do you understand? I have taken all that was shameful and nailed it to the cross. By My Blood you are all beauty within and now we will step forward together and lay the foundation on the immovable Rock of My Love. Pillars of righteousness, wisdom, purity, worship and praise will rise to support the roof of humility that will forever protect your life within. Each day, living waters will flow freely from within and go out into the world to quench the thirst of others who are still captive in their pits. I will teach you the ways of love and you will be My Ambassador of Love to a hurting world.
“Now that we have established your new life in Me, I wish for you to rest. Yes, rest. Your life is hidden in Me now.
“No more striving. Striving to become holy, striving to accomplish, striving to produce, striving to impress… No, that is over now. All shall be done by Me, through you. Wait for Me to move. Catch the wind of My Spirit. Flow with My leadings… I am at the helm, My Spirit powers the sails, together we will live this new life, together we will finally arrive at Our final destination – the very shores of Eternal Life.”
Prophetic Message to My Bride
September 1, 2014
The Lord is calling His Bride, or His potential Bride to repentance. She’s not ready for the Rapture. And He is wanting to prepare her. And, as I have shared in a previous teaching, part of the reason the economy in this country is slumping and the Lord is allowing it, is to get His Bride back from the world. To get her mind off of the things of the world and onto Him.
So, you know, we have a lot of prosperity Christians in this country, people who talk about prosperity – that you’re not really a successful Christian if you don’t have the faith to be prosperous. Nothing could be further from the truth, because prosperity and money was the last thing on the Lord’s mind in the New Testament. In the Old Testament, it was sometimes a mark of favor from God, but in the New Testament, the Lord set a standard.
He didn’t choose to be born as a king, or a prince, or to live like a king or a prince. He chose a simple life, an unpretentious life. A life that was not entrenched in the things of the world.
So, He’s looking for a Bride who resembles Him. And as I examinemy heart every day before the Lord, and I realize the areas where I fall short, I’m writing those things down for you as well. Because I think we can help each other, by recognizing some things about ourselves and sharing them.
Here’s the message the Lord gave me:
“The beautiful people, as a group, are not My Bride. I’m looking for the lowly, contrite and devout. Those persecuted for the sake of righteousness. I am looking for those who resemble Me. That is what My Bride looks like. I want to give great hope to the lowly and marginalized. They are My beauties. They are the ones who most resemble Me on the Earth. I’m sorry to say it, but many of My Christians resemble the beauty queens of Babylon – or in your day, Hollywood.
“I know you get tired of Me saying it, but this is not Hollywood – this is Heaven. And the souls here bear no resemblance whatsoever to the ones you call great on this Earth.
“Summon My Bride and My people to repentance. I am by no means saying that a lovely person by the worlds’ standards can not be My Bride – but in her personal life, she will resemble Me. Crucified, rejected, passed over, scorned. Bearing the scars caused by the callous contempt of others in her heart. My heart is drawn to such as these. They carry their pain with quiet dignity, yet from the outside, you would never recognize them. These are My chosen ones. Along with the little, the frail, the rejected, and the marginalized.
“I know I’m repeating Myself – but this couldn’t be more relevant, more important.
“I want all to know that what I am looking for in a potential Bride, is NOT the wellgroomed, Christianeez. Rather, the very, very little ones. Bring to Me all those who have deemed themselves unworthy of My Crown. Instill in them a quiet confidence that they indeed belong to Me and are worthy. They are My Bride. They are My Chosen Ones.
“And those who are still standing around waiting to be hired are VERY important to Me. They will indeed be paid the same wage as those who were chosen first, and ahead of all the lowly and undesirable ones.”
So, that’s the Lord’s message right now to His Bride and to His Church. And I’m beginning a series on who is the Bride of Christ where I’m counting on the Holy Spirit to reveal more and more to me the attributes of those who are going to be Raptured, because they truly ARE His Bride. They truly resemble Him.
Until then, God bless you.
Minister My Love on This Channel
July 18, 2015
I pray that the Lord’s sweet presence would be with us today, as we listen to His heartbeat. Because truly He shared part of His heart with me tonight.
Our time began with very intense worship. I had just a real sense of longing for the Lord, just eating away at me. It was very hard, really – knowing Who He is and reaching for Him and sensing His presence is so painful. After a while, He just held me very tightly, and I could tell that He didn’t want to let me go any more than I wanted to let Him go. Finally, He ended up saying that He would hold me during the whole message. That was probably the only way I’d listen to Him!
Anyway, I said ‘Jesus, I can’t let go of You!’
He answered me, “Nor I of you, My Dove. Hang in there, Clare. I AM coming soon.”
Oh, Lord – You know those words….
“I know. Nonetheless, I am sincere, you know.”
I’m not saying You aren’t sincere. It’s just too hard to think about it.
“I know. This IS part of the Sacrifice. My faithful Wife, standing on the seashore, with her lamp lit and burning strongly, looking into the distant mists for signs of Me.” He lifted my chin ever so tenderly, looking deeply into my eyes. “I AM coming.”
“No, seriously. Very shortly now, your life on Earth will end, and no more feelings of separation from Me ever again. I know you can’t fathom My love for you right now, even though we hold one another very tightly. You must know how much I love you, Clare.”
Oh, Lord, this world is so wicked, and You are so sweet an consoling.
“Not long, now – not long at all.”
But, Lord – NO one knows the day or hour.
He answered me, “Unless they’d been told by the Father…” His eyes twinkled.
Oh, Jesus! Give me the strength I need to persevere and take care of this Family. Help me in my weakness. Truly, I need Your help.
“Just hold onto the rope of Grace, My Love. Hold on. Just hold on.”
Jesus, would You hold on for me?
“Always. I am your safety cable, never to let go or fail you.”
“Well, are you feeling better?”
No…not until You come… I pouted.
“Well, I see we have impatient Brides looking for some new words.”
Lord, can you blame them?
“No, of course not. But those who are so impatient still have not put into full practice what I’ve asked of them. So, they come back on you as if you were the source. As if you had any say in what comes from Me. Well, you don’t. And I wish for all of them to take My words more seriously. Those who accept you are accepting Me, and that goes for the messages as well. Just a gentle rebuke, My Brides.”
What’s He’s talking is about is a couple of folks have expressed their ‘boredom’ with the last message – nothing new, you know. I even was in that place, where I thought, ‘Well, this message is kinda flat’…or kinda repetitive, or whatever. I confess: I was in that spot, too. And so the Lord is giving us clarification of what’s going on with Him, and why the last message was as it was.
He continued, “The church is ever looking for another sign, another prophetic word. Do you know, that’s a sign of spiritual boredom? Lukewarmness? Yes, it is. Your relationship with Me should be so vibrant, so exciting to you, that My presence is all you seek.”
Oh, Jesus…they’re going to love me for this…
“Do you care?”
I thought about it for a minute, and I thought in a sense I do…but in the ultimate sense, no. I don’t care. I only care about being faithful to what He wants me to say.
“Clare, I’m not a man, that you can put words in My mouth. I want more maturity from My waiting Bride. I want more depths of understanding. You are not here to entertain them. You are here to expose My heart to them. When I see the unsaved languishing, My heart aches. I want so badly to comfort them. Should I speak, so as to console My Bride? Or reach out to those who are perishing. Truly, Children – where are you coming from? Is this channel just for you? Or for the lost as well? For all – no matter what their status or understanding.
“When you see Me tenderly reach out for those who don’t know Me, back Me up! In Heaven you’ll be trained further to reach souls. This IS the work I have for you. This IS My daily preoccupation, that NONE should be lost. Back Me up, My Bride. Pray for those who visit this channel, that they will invite Me into their hearts and give Me their very lives. Oh, how I so desire they would come to Me. My heart burns with longing to comfort and console them. To heal their lethal wounds, and shed light on the suffocating darkness they walk in.
“Let them see that your heart is for them, too, by the generosity of your remarks and prayers. Let them know, that you care not for just yourself, but for them, too. That is a major problem with My Church – enough people don’t really care. They don’t care to go out of their way, for those who have yet to find their way.
“Come with me in this, Beloved Ones. We’re walking in times of obtuse darkness. So many languish, because they have not witnessed My love. They know all the things they are doing wrong – satan has bombarded them with their sins and worthlessness, so they dare not approach Me. We need to present to them the other side of Me, through you, who daily receive generous doses of My Love.
“Don’t recoil because I’ve corrected you. I chasten those I love. I’m molding you into perfect charity and self-sacrifice – even in the messages I give you. We are on the last leg of our journey together. This is your last opportunity to harvest with Me. Give it your generous all. Show those who do not know Me the side you know so well, and convince them of My goodness.”
Lord – this message seems so repetitive.
“It bears repeating until it is put into practice. Actually, I’m giving all a warm invitation to spot the survivors who are barely hanging on, those who’ve been crippled so badly in this life that they see no hope. You, My Brides, have walked with Me long enough to know that hope. Some of you have been beacons of charity, rushing to the side of every wounded soul, spreading the fragrance of My Love. To you, I say – truly, you have brought Me joy and repaired the damage done by so many remarks of indifference from those who bear My Name.
“You who are weary and impatient – come into My presence and worship. Allow your heart to meld with Mine. Allow Me to refill you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t see Me. What matters is that you came to Me and I’m there with you, filling you with generous rivers of Grace, that you may go out to a thirsty and languishing world.
“Do you know that there are actually some on this channel who have given their lives to Me because they have listened to your conversations, and been edified and inspired to approach Me? And after you prepared their hearts, I indeed came to them. Just by this small, insignificant act you have brought them safely into the harbor of salvation.
“[_ Souls do not need to be pounded into the ground with Scriptures. They are already face-down in the dirt, hating themselves, and so loaded down with years of condemnation, they really don’t believe anyone could ever love them. No, they need you to rush to their side, lift them up, help them stand, dust them off, and like the good Samaritan, clean their wounds with the finest salve and carry them in your prayers -just as surely as the donkey carried them to the inn, where they could be fed and recuperate. That’s the response I’m longing to see on this channel, for those who come here wounded and sin sick. _]
“You have only to ask, and I will give you My heart for them. I will equip you with that costly salve, made from My own body and blood. Their wounds will heal, and they will in turn succor others. This is how the Kingdom of God comes: one, by one, by one. It’s the little things that matter most. The seemingly insignificant response to a post that reveals the true Presence of the One True God who is Love.
“Well done, My good and faithful servants. Well done, for all the times you’ve revealed Me to others. You have no idea the fruit you have waiting for you in Heaven. Those little acts of kindness were nourishing drops of water in a dry and barren wasteland. You have witnessed first-hand the wasteland on the internet: the bickering, jealousy, down-grading, deprecating remarks and assertiveness of those who thrive on strife. Do not be a part of contentiousness – that is not My spirit at work. That is the enemy, turning souls from love to bitterness, turning attention to My spirit to the spirit of the world. Knowledge puffs up. Charity edifies. Rather, draw others out of the hostile climate into the oasis of your love.
“Yes, indeed. You carry within you an oasis, and I am never absent from you, but am faithful to give you an anointed word in season.
“So. There you have My Word for you in this torturous time of waiting. Minister to those who are languishing, and be a generous example of My love and patience. You open the way for Me. Just as it is written, ‘Prepare the way of the Lord.’”
Minister To Me My Tender Bride
July 4, 2015
As I was in worship today and this evening, I saw the Lord in the Crown of Thorns, and He was weeping. The only thing He really wanted was comfort. He just wanted to be comforted… And that went on for quite some time. And then I felt that it was time to listen – He began speaking to me immediately:
“Tuck into Me, Clare. Your love brings such consolation. Little as you are. Deficient as you are. Frail as you are. Weak in temptation as you are… nonetheless, your love consoles Me. Truly it does, please don’t doubt Me. Please embrace Me in My time of misery – you so distract me from what is ahead. My world turns around as you draw near, you turn My mourning into dancing with just one little smile and mark of love.
It’s interesting that He said that, because as I was embracing Him at the beginning of our worship time and singing to Him, and He was weeping – He started to calm down. And all of a sudden I realized He was no longer wearing the Crown of Thorns, but He was wearing the Bridegroom’s attire. And He seemed to be much more at peace.
“Please don’t underestimate the attentions of a little soul. Yes, even as the angels ministered to Me in the garden, you, My tender little souls, minister here to Me now. Amidst the frightening prospects that approach, amidst the blood and gore I must deal with every day, believe it or not, the advances and pure affection of My Bride turn My Heart inside out – from bitterness to quiet joy. She is there for Me.
“I come home from the battlefield and lo, she is at the door, serving Me the warm portions of her love, caressing My brow, removing My sandals and kissing My feet. Yes, she awaits My arrival with such tenderness. She tends to the wounds of indifference, the mocking, the scourging, the blows. And the piercing pain of My Crown of Scorns, she removes from My Brow and pours oil upon My wounds.
“Yes, My Bride, this IS what you have been called to do.”
Just as an aside here, I just wanted to mention that sometimes I get under condemnation because – in fact, quite a bit – because I’m worshipping Him and I’m comforting Him. But I’m not getting into really gut-wreching intercession. And it bothers me. I think to myself, ‘Am I using this time properly? Am I doing what He’s called me to do – or am I getting so caught up in the joys of comforting Him and being with Him that I’m actually being lazy and not interceding vigorously. So, when He brought this up, He was really instructing me on something I had thought earlier this evening as we were spending time together.
“Yes, My Bride. This IS what you have been called to do. You may do it for others in My Name and you may do it for Me in the privacy of our heavenly trysting time. I am weary from the battle. To see you waiting for Me does My heart more good than you’ll ever know. This is a lonely road, a lonely, lonely road on this Earth, yet the tender attention of My Bride makes up for it all. She alone is My consolation in utter degradation.”
I was at this point blushing, because I overdid it today with pie, and yesterday with cake. It just seems like the last two days I’ve had a craving and no self-control as far as the things that I normally avoid. So, I was feeling a little guilty as He was saying all these very sweet and tender things to me.
“Yes, yes, I know…I know all about the pie and the cake and your lack of self-control. Nevertheless, you have done it for the least of these, you have shared what I have taught you. So, much is to your credit – I wipe away your self-indulgence. So, stop fretting. Your charity has covered your lapses in self-denial.
“Let’s not stumble over trifles. The more you engage in the battle directly, the more you will lose. Let me gently guide you away from these things so it does not become a struggle.”
I think what He was referring to here was, when we meet a problem or a fault head-on and struggle directly against it – sometimes we get entrenched in this battle that is so distracting, your life kinda stops while you try to deal with this issue. If you’ve got a craving for something, or whatever. “If you try to address it head-on, allow Me to distract you away from it.” So that, He’s going to draw me away from it so that it’s not important anymore. And I’ve seen Him do that time and time again.
“Each day I look for those who would comfort Me. My children, do not allow the enemy of your souls to cause your attention to be turned inward on yourselves. Trust that I love you, I forgive you and I’m indeed coming for you. I never asked you to be perfect in all these details of life. I did ask you to be perfect in charity and love for your brother, good or bad. Yes, that I did ask.”
And at this point I was saying, ‘Lord…is this You?? ‘Cause you DID say Be perfect, even as your heavenly Father is perfect.’ And He clarified it for me immediately. He said,
“Look at the context, Clare:”
When I read the Scriptures in the Bible Promises Book – it’s under
And that’s the context in what He was saying there.
“Be perfect in Charity, to Me and to one another. This is what I am calling you to. When I see you doing thusly I smile, and I say, ‘Yes, this Bride is ready for more graces, more gifts. She has done well with what she has, now it is time to increase her talents that she may bring forth even more fruit for the Kingdom.’
“Do you not know that charity is STILL and always will be the heart of the law. Put away your condemnations for yourselves and your neighbors and look to see if charity is missing or if it’s there. Then you will know where you stand with Me. Choose the things that endure, not those which will pass away.”
And when He said that, I was reminded of the Scripture of when prophecies pass away, and all things pass away – but Love will never pass away.
“As long as you allow the devils to put you under condemnation, you will look at others through the same lenses through which you see yourselves.
“This is the reason for the main assault against your characters. Don’t you know that, as they succeed in turning you towards yourself and fault finding, you will withdraw more and more from Me and from one another? When you are focused on your faults, you more readily see the faults of your brother. When you are focused on My Love, you more readily see the goodness in others and in yourself. I reflect back to you the goodness I see coming forth as you travel this road with Me, as you allow Me to carry you. I will even show you the perfection I have planned for you, which in truth has been completed in Heaven and has yet to be manifested here on Earth in its time.
“So, keep your eyes on Me. Have nothing but scorn and contempt for the ugliness of the world and your own failings. Declare that you are under My Blood and I have already perfected you. Short circuit their strategies to keep you in a downward spiral of discouragement.
“Yes, rise above. Rise through resting in Me as I bring forth all the beauty of your souls I have envisioned from the very foundations of the world. Rise and come forth, My Beautiful Ones, for it is I your God who calls you forth from the mire of the past into My glorious, transforming light.
“Rise and come forth I say to you!”
My Bride is Not Responding
September 28, 2014
“It’s so good to be with you. Oh how I wish My faithful ones could understand how eternally grateful I am to them for heeding My call to spend time with Me, to keep on trying, to keep on confessing.”
The more I see of myself, Lord, the more I am perplexed as to why You love to spend time with me, why You have called me so close to Your Heart.
As a side note on that, I have spent several days repenting for presumption and pride, and several other things. I’m really in a place right now where I recognize a lot of things that are not pleasing to the Lord, but that He loves me anyway!
“All of this (my being perplexed by Him) is beside the point. I can do anything with one, just one that is willing. And here I have two who are willing. And many Brides who ARE prepared and willing. How wonderful is that for Me? You just don’t see or understand. There is much I must keep secret from My prepared Brides or they would indeed be ruined.”
I think He’s talking about Pride here.
“But suffice it to say, I am most grateful that they have given Me all they have, that they are so willing and eager to please Me and do My bidding no matter how little return they get from the world. This is a rare quality, giving without getting any reward, without seeing any fruit, still giving, giving, and giving more.”
Lord, You are my reward.
“And that is as it should be. Just be My faithful plow horse, pulling, pulling, pulling, even when you’re tired and hurting, still you are pulling. All of My faithful ones do Me great honor by their obedience in these supposedly small things.
“Yet I tell you the truth, they have gathered much fruit for the Kingdom of God by their simple unflagging obedience. Much fruit. So, do not be alarmed at what others call a ‘lack of fruit’. Do not concern yourselves with these petty things. Those who have obeyed have brought forth much fruit although at this hour it remains hidden.”
Now here He is speaking to the Bride:
“You have pleased Me. That is all that counts. You have taken quite a bit of calumny from those closest to you, but others see the pearls in My Kingdom that you are. But even if you were fortunate enough that no one could see, still, you have born much fruit by your simple detached (from worldly rewards) obedience. And without self-seeking, rather at all times seeking Me and My approval alone. This is what I have meant. This I will reward and still you will stay small and safe. Tucked away in My Heart, abounding in love and grace, much to My glory. There are yet many surprises for My Bride, as she grows in lowliness, I will entrust her with more gifts and she will prosper in her work.”
Oh Lord, are You going to be delayed that long?
“You’re a clever one, you are! Trying to get it out of Me, huh? Well let Me tell you a little secret…I don’t know any more than you do.”
“Would I deceive you?”
Good grief NO You wouldn’t deceive me!
“Good, then take it at face value, I’m waiting too. I am indeed waiting and while I have an over view of the condition of My Church, I do not know when The Father will say, “Enough!” All I know is that we are at the door and waiting for the word. We truly are.
“I told you, My Bride is not ready yet. But that does not mean that He will continue to tolerate those who are not working to catch up. If the apathy continues…well, you can figure that one out.”
Lord, I don’t understand… really, forgive me, but how can You, God, ‘not know’ anything??? Truly this mystifies me and makes it so difficult to take Your word at face value.
“I know, I understand. May I say that I have chosen not to know?”
“Do you know how painful this is for Me? I am indeed too close to My Bride, and have so many expectations for her. But she is not living up to them, she’s not responding to the life I’m pumping into her. You can see it by the response to YouTubes. What you and others have done to nourish her is extraordinary in these dark times. But she pays little to no heed. This is why I suspect that the sign to commence the Rapture may come in spite of her lack of readiness.
“Can you understand? How much I love her, how much I long to see her completed in Me? Oh, how I long for her. I have so much to give her, but she’s not responding, Clare. Pray that she will respond.”
Lord, You know how to make her respond, I’ve seen it time and time again in our own lives. You are amazing.
“Indeed I do, but free will ties My hands, and if I must tell you all, I am tired of seeing the suffering of those who are paying close attention and have made themselves ready. That means more suffering for them, and frankly, I’m tired of seeing My gifts ignored while My Bride goes blithely along ignoring the signs of My coming. The fresh life I give her is wasted because of her preoccupation with the world.”
But Lord, you have the antidote for that.
“Yes and it involves more suffering for those who are faithfully waiting.”
Compared to Your suffering for us, can we ever suffer in patience enough, for just one more soul?
“Well, it isn’t hopeless, but it is nearing that point. All I can say is, Be READY. At any time, any time, My Father could call a halt to this, any time Clare.”
“Now I have explained to you why I have chosen not to know, please do not hurt Me by your unbelief.”
Keep a Rapture Vigil With Me And Do Not Judge
March 31, 2015
Sorry I didn’t get a message up last night, but we had some discernment issues we had to address – I’ll talk about those in a few minutes. I wanted to take a moment to tell you that, getting to know you – all of our Youtube listeners – getting to know you, Family, is just wonderful. I’ve never met such a sensitive, loving and caring group of souls anywhere.
I’m so grateful for those of you who have written in and listen to our channel, make comments, and even the support helps. But the most beautiful part of it all is just the spirit of the people who’ve been on this channel – it’s just so sweet and precious. Ezekiel and I are overwhelmed and tremendously grateful to the Lord for sending all of you to our channel – we are so grateful. Thank you. Thank you so much for supporting us and for being here.
Last night, I began a message. And it went pretty smoothly until I noticed that things had shifted and I noticed a contradiction. At that point I stopped totally, went into discernment mode. Ezekiel had already gone to bed, so I couldn’t ask him to help discern. And I was getting very, very tired, ‘cause yesterday was a heavy day. A lot of correspondence. I love you guys, and I love writing back to you, but it wipes me out!
So, I’m hoping that as I share more of our videos with you, you’ll be looking more at the previous videos so that I don’t have to repeat myself. A lot of things I’m being asked, I’ve already addressed in pretty in-depth teaching and the playlists. I have the teachings categorized, so if you go to the playlists, you can tell a whole lot.
Well, on with the message. We finally got it discerned – I wasn’t hearing from the Lord in the second half of that message, so it’s a good thing I stopped. And this happens! This actually does happen. When you pick up on it, you stop, and you pray and you wait on the Lord for Him to clarify it. But the first part of the message was perfect, so that’s what I’m going to give you this morning. This is where Jesus began:
“Right now I am most concerned about the little ways of compromise, little insignificant things that open the door to bigger things, even in the short time left. I am most concerned that My Bride is not preparing herself sufficiently with prayer, and communing with Me. I say this because strong temptations will be released as things begin to heat up and unless My Bride is truly dwelling in Me she will not weather the storms in equanimity, she will be swayed.
“No preparation is as important as prayer right now. I know there are many who are still sorting things out for when they are gone. I advise you not to worry about them, the very moment you are taken from the Earth, My plan will start into action.”
There He’s talking about His plan for your children, your spouse – whatever.
“What has been left behind is sufficient without getting into worldly things, as you have been tempted to do. I must say I am proud of you for not giving in.”
Lord, I feel such restraint in the depths of my being about things like shopping for food and short-wave radios and the like. I feel such a restraint.
“That is My Spirit dwelling within you.
“Perhaps the most precious thing you can do is leave sweet letters behind. Other than that, stay away from things that will draw you back out into the world. I have told you what is coming and the very best preparation is what you are doing now: communing with Me, soaking in My reality, anticipating My needs. You know from experience that focusing on the things pertaining to the flesh brings you far away from center in Me. They cause you to lose touch with reality. When I say reality I mean My Reality, not the so called reality of this world and all it’s business, which in an instant can be undone.
“The temptations to act on practical, everyday matters can be overwhelming. Yet if you weigh what is in the balance and consider that this world will not be your home for very much longer, you can choose for the Spirit. The very best preparation for your departure is spiritual – this will even impact your children.”
Okay – that is where the message stopped. I want to go over a few things with you.
I imagine for women – for all women – it’s the same thing: company is coming to visit you and immediately you swing into a full-scale cleaning out, organizing, in-perfect-shape, make a good impression. Everything is orderly. And you’re stressing out, also – like when you are about to give birth, your time is near and you start nesting. You start running around taking care of little things that really aren’t important at the time, but you’re nesting. Sometimes when women get upset, they also nest! I’ve shared that with my husband, and he’s caught me several times in the past years nesting. “Honey, are you nesting??”
I would be nesting, for instance, if I was having trouble with discernment – that’s one of the most painful things in my life: thinking I’m hearing from the Lord and I’m not. He allows that sometimes for training and to correct pride…I’ve got LOTS of pride, so I do have to be careful about that. So, I start nesting when I find out I’ve gone astray and the Lord is correcting me.
I’ve gotten better about it over the years, but it is a temptation that I think a lot of us struggle with.
So, here we are looking at the biggest change that could ever happen in our lives. Some of you could be a little bit anxious – some of you ladies, and even you men could be in nesting mode, thinking about: ‘I’ll leave this behind, I’ll leave this behind. I’ll do this, I’ll do that.’ You can get caught up in a whirlwind of business trying to prepare for who’s left behind…and you are a sitting duck, to be brought down by the enemy, because you will not be grounded when it all hits. This is what the Lord is saying, this is His main concern right now: not to be nesting, but instead to be praying.
For those of you who work, I suggest that you take off two or three sick days before this weekend – I’d suggest that you take off sick days for the rest of this week, and devote your time to prayer.
Now, if something doesn’t happen by the weekend – which I doubt – but if it doesn’t happen, that’s alright. It’s not a big deal, you’ve just lost a couple sick days, you can go back to work. But if something DOES happen, which is what we strongly feel, something is coming very soon. Whether it happens this weekend or next weekend, the Lord is calling for us to prepare NOW – to prepare by praying and focusing on Him. To get into HIS reality.
Because, when the world’s reality changes, if we aren’t steadfast in His reality, we’re going to be buffeted and knocked around and basically knocked off our horse. And find ourselves just as confused as everyone else around us. He doesn’t want that – He wants us standing.
One of the things Ezekiel brought up, is when the message started to go in the wrong direction last night, it was going in the direcctions of getting me out to the store, going and buying food and stocking up food and things for the children – for my unsaved loved ones. And getting real busy, busy, busy getting things together. And in my spirit, I had no desire to do that. I said to the Lord, ‘In my spirit, I feel such restraint in the depths of my being about things like shopping.’
And the Lord said, “That’s My Spirit dwelling within you.”
And then five minutes later, this voice is talking to me about leaving things behind for my children and food – because food’s going to be a shortage – there’s going to be a shortage of food. And I thought, ‘What’s going on here? This is a contradiction. This isn’t right – this isn’t the Lord. Obviously, somebody’s messing with my head.’ So, I just stopped at that point, went to bed. And I got up this morning and started discerning it with Ezekiel. And one of the things Ezekiel said is, “The Lord already has a plan for our children – and for your children and your husband. The Lord’s got a plan. And His divine providence – His Providential hand is going to swoop down and touch them, and lift them up and provide for them. And that’s going to be one of the signs for them, that God is with them and that He loves them. That He has not abandoned them.”
So, the false spirit (or demon, which is what is was) was trying to get me to do God’s job. Trying to get me to go set up everything perfectly for the kids, when the Lord already HAS a plan. And THAT plan will bring them into a deeper faith.
I wanted to share this with you because I am very, very nitty-picky about discerning. I don’t ever want to be misled. It’s not just a pride thing – it’s like, I don’t want my mind put in places it shouldn’t be. I don’t want my priorities set on things they shouldn’t be set on at the wrong time. But more than that, I don’t ever want to deceive anyone reading my messages or listening to my videos.
Ezekiel has something to contribute to the message this morning. The Lord is dealing with us about hidden judgments. Now, this is the fruit of totally focusing on Him in prayer and dwelling prayer and being with the Lord. I have a whole series focused on what is dwelling prayer in my vido playlists. They are foundational, early teachings with Scripture that will help you understand what Dwelling Prayer is – very similar to Soaking Prayer, except you’re dwelling in your heart with the Lord, Who lives there.
: Well, I woke up this morning and the very first cognizant thought in my mind was that I needed to repent. That WE needed to repent. And I thought, ‘Well, what for, Lord?’ I thought we’d checked all our bases and I think we’re all trying to stay clean before You and watch and wait and be prepared. And, you know, help where we can, but stay focused on You. And He brought before me familiar faces of people that I know and have known, that – for the longest time, maybe weeks, months, even years in some cases – I assumed that they just weren’t going to be ready. They just weren’t going to go. And I hoped that they were going to be okay, but they’d just have to stay behind and go through some of this.
And the Lord called me short on that. He said, “If there’s any hidden judgment in your heart like that, first of all – you have no idea of the state of any soul before Me. That’s for Me and Me alone to judge. And when you look at a person, or people, or situations that you think aren’t going to make it, or won’t be taken, you’re setting yourself up to be the Judge and the Jury – and you’ve already pronounced sentence on them. I can’t allow you to have that.”
It’s like He was saying there’s Zero tolerance for judgment here. That’s probably one of the uglies stains we can have on our wedding dress. We need to be very careful, and go back and ask Holy Spirit to please bring up any hidden areas of judgment that we may have, tucked away, attitudes…anything like that. About anything or anyone. I don’t care if it’s someone…from a world leader, to a religious leader, to the neighbor, a cousin, an uncle, a friend…and enemy, whoever. We just can’t make that call and we shouldn’t. We need to look for the good, pray for the good in everyone. As Paul says, we need to esteem all others as better than ourselves.
The safest place is the lowest place. I know we want to be set and ready when He comes, and I don’t want to have ANYTHING like that in the way when He does. Because if I have hidden judgment in my heart, then He’s going to have to judge me. And I want that to be a celebration – a time of celebration! NOT a time of judgement.
So, check your hearts – check them deep and regularly and thoroughly these next few days.
Clare: Thank you. That’s a really good word. I’m guilty as charged, even now I can think of a couple people where I’ve thought to myself, ‘Well, he’s not going, they’re not going.’ No, Lord – I repent. Forgive me, that’s terrible! I mean, who am I to judge the state of a soul – we just don’t know. Even some of these world leaders that seem to be terrible, and have terrible agendas. Some of them think that they are really doing the world a favor – they really believe that what they are doing has to be done for the good of all. Yet only the Lord knows the state of a soul.
The other thing I would like to say is, even on Youtubes or other things we hear – I think we should be very careful to NOT accuse people of being this, or being that – be careful not to accuse the vessels that the Lord has chosen to share His word with. There are things that we don’t know. We see as through a glass darkly, and there are things that we don’t understand about other churches and other faiths – we just assume that they are evil because we’ve been taught that they are evil. And WE really don’t know. We haven’t examined them, we haven’t gotten the Lord’s heart about those things. And so it causes us to have prejudice against people and to make judgments against them.
Sometimes people, when they open their mouths to make a judgment, they can be really vicious! And say terrible things. It’s best not to judge at all, let alone do it with a wrong spirit. Even when we do it with a right spirit, we have to be so careful, because we don’t know how the state of that soul is before the Lord. We’re just assuming we know, because of something we think is right or wrong. So, I admonish you: Unity. “Unity – that they should be one.” The Lord talks about that.
And so the Lord is calling for unity. This is a critical moment in history. This is a critical moment in our lives. Let’s not mess it up by being judgmental and harsh with other people. And certainly, let’s not pronounce judgment on who’s going to be going in the Rapture and who isn’t.
So, Lord is saying here it’s very, very important not to be judging. But the most important thing, I think the message out of this is what can be found in John 17:
Make an act of the will: “Lord, this is an ugly sin, and I don’t want to be in this place. I don’t want to have opinions about who is right before You and who is wrong before You. That’s not my place, that is Your place. I don’t want to be IN that place – please help me to stay out of judgment.”
I can tell you out of experience, the easiest way to stay out of judgment is to look at your own sins, and to look at who you are before God. Take a look at yourself in God’s mirror. Allow Holy Spirit to reveal some things about you, that you know are wrong. Not to condemn yourself, but to keep a perspective – so you can understand, “Wow. Who am I to raise MY eyes and condemn someone, when I have this is my life?”
Now, one last note that Ezekiel reminded me of: don’t over-react to this teaching and feel like, “I’m not going (in the Rapture) because I judged so-and-so!” No, the Lord is coming for you – He just wants you to keep your wedding garment unspotted until He gets here. And this time of preparation and quiet and dwelling in His presence is all about examining any little flaws that might be in our wedding garment. But you’ve got your wedding garment on and He’s taking you – you just want to be as pure before Him as you possibly can.
The bottom line is, do what you can to stay in prayer and be ready the next three or so days. Don’t worry about what’s left behind and what’s not left behind. Make an effort to really get into the Lord’s space and His perspective on the world. We all know something is coming. All of us have been sitting on the edge of our seats, some for years, waiting for the Rapture. Many of us have been disappointed time and time again, that the Rapture didn’t happen when we thought it was going to happen. And it may be delayed by a few days – but the Lord said, and I really believe this was the Lord, “Don’t push it back to the Fall.” That’s the best hint that He gave me, “Don’t push it back to the Fall.”
The other signs that we’re looking for as to the timing: in Ezekiel’s dream when he was taken up in the Rapture, the leaves were JUST beginning to put out little, green leaves. Little tiny green leaves coming off the branches. That was his timing, and I believe the Lord was pinpointing that for Taos, because that is where we live in Taos, New Mexico. And then, the thirteen year old girl that had the incredible, open vision when she was thirteen and didn’t know the Lord. Her Dogwood tree was in full bloom, and this was in Georgia, and the Dogwood tree was in full bloom, just gloriously. And her vision even is beautiful because the Dogwood is associated with Christ. The story that goes with it is that the Lord’s blood dropped on the petals of the flowers… I don’t know the whole association, but it was a symbol. I believe in her whole Rapture experience that she was actually seeing the condition, the season of the year that the Rapture would happen, and that dovetails with what we’ve seen. And that would be, before Summer.
So, prepare your hearts with prayer before this holy weekend. What happens next week? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
I just took a break a moment ago and picked up one of my books that I enjoy reading from in order to get a rhema, and this is what I opened to, and I think it sums up everything, really:
“Help me understand, Lord, that the one thing You want most from me is my presence. You created us to be with You in the Garden of Eden, and Your Son asked specifically if I could be with Him in Heaven. Help me to realize that my presence is the one gift I can give, and that it is often the only gift that matters.” Lori Beth Jones,
And I just wanted to say that the Lord wants our presence for two reasons: for the health of our own souls, so that our reality can be His reality when it really matters, when we’re really tried and put in the fire and to the test. And because He wants the consolation of His Bride beside Him, paying attention to Him when He’s going through one of the roughest times in His history.
And last night, as Ezekiel was keeping Him company, He spoke to him, and He said, “Your presence is a comfort to Me.”
So, let’s continue to examine our hearts, and to keep Him company and to console Him.
My Bride – A Proverbs 31 Woman
June 4, 2015
Today, the Lord brought up the Proverbs 31 woman in relationship to His Bride – the Bride of Christ. So I’m going to share what He had to say. I think Ezekiel brought this up to me earlier in the evening, and then the Lord continued to bring this up with respect to who His Bride was and how to recognize His Bride.
“When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls. This is another picture of My Bride, Clare.
“I can entrust My heart to her. She is there for Me, looking out for My interests and being a comfort and companion, even to the poor and lonely, in whom I dwell and cry out in loneliness.
“She is a steadfast and unfailing prize, she does not give up but perseveres under trial. She brings Me good and not evil all the days of her life. She doesn’t live a selfish or shameful life, but looks after the affairs of My household and does nothing that brings reproach upon Me.
“She obtains wool and flax and makes cloth with skillful hands. Wool represents the work of her hands, her supportive work and efforts to build up her household, covering their needs in all seasons. Flax is symbolic of linen and prayer…she is a woman of prayer and covers her household in prayer.
“She reaches out her hands to the poor, and extends her arms to the needy. She continually is showing My heart of mercy to those around her and I am continually showering My mercy upon her and all her undertakings.
“Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting… I abhor vanity and a life taken up with the superficial and fleeting worldly affairs…but the woman who respects Me and lives her life unto Me, scorns those things the world applauds.
“Give her the reward of her labors, she will be rewarded with the fruit of her labors. And her works will praise her at the city gates. She is recognized by the elders for her virtue and faithfulness, by the community reflecting My standards and living a spotless life as an example to others.”
The other thing the Lord brought up in conjunction with this, He began:
And I felt very much that He was saying they relate to each other. The fruitful vine is the fruit that comes from a household that’s in order. “Your children will be like olive shoots around the table.” Here I feel the Lord is using this as a reference to His family, the family of God and His spiritual children that He has with His Bride.
And at this point the Lord brought to mind our relationships with our husbands and that this is an example of the worthy wife as well. Her husband can entrust his heart to her, she is even-tempered, compassionate and respectful, always building him up, both in her heart and outwardly in her actions and words. Those are my words, that’s what I was feeling in the spirit. You know, getting busy with Youtube and getting a little overwhelmed with correspondence and that type of thing, sometimes I get a little short with Ezekiel, and he has to be very patient with me – which he is. So, we are slowing things down a little bit, so that I can get caught up – that I’m not short with anyone, and he’s not short with anyone. Sometimes we just need to show respect for one another, and especially me – I need to respect my spouse, my husband in whom is my covering, who watches over me and takes really wonderful care of me. But when we get overwhelmed sometimes, when we’re in the middle of doing something and we don’t feel like stopping – ‘cause we’re making progress or whatever – the Lord has taught me to stop what I’m doing, and take cares of his needs. And in the same way, he stops and takes care of my needs and we’re there for each other. But we can lose sight sometimes of our spouses and lose respect because we’re not paying attention – we have our minds on other things. Or we could be reading our own PR, who knows – I mean there are ALL different ways that we can get involved with the world and other things, and tend to miss what’s going on with our spouses. So, sometimes when we have projects we have to do, we need to be even more vigilent to be respectful and to listen to what our husbands are saying to us and how the Lord is using him to cover us.
And you know, when you’re in ministry sometimes you come under attack in that area. One of the things we pray against are spirits of miscommunication. We have had a problem with that for the longest time. Half of the secret can just be recognizing that there CAN be a tendency for miscommunication. And so, it’s very important to bind those spirits and to be sure that you’re heard properly and that you hear them properly. That protects us from all kinds of misunderstandings that can take us in the wrong direction.
Getting back to what the Lord was showing me in this Proverb, He brought to mind our relationships with our husbands, that we need to be extremely respectful, compassionate, even-tempered, building him up both in our hearts and outwardly in our actions. And for husbands not to provoke their wives, for husbands to be patient, understanding and supportive of their wives, and covering them as well. It’s a two-way street, that’s for sure. She covers him in prayer and has a deep, abiding respect. That was the thought that came to me – looks out for his needs and is ready to support him. Laying aside her own needs to see his – as I mentioned before, he does the same thing. Husbands are called to do the same thing for their wives.
The Scripture that came to mind as I was finishing this little message was:
Lord, please give us the Grace to live this proverb as Your Bride, that You might find us worthy to be delivered from the wrath to come. We love You, Lord – thank You so much for loving us and teaching us.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? or Plain Old Self-Will The Black Panther Prowls Again
July 23, 2015
The Lord bless you, dear Family. Well, this is a Ben & Jerry’s New York Chocolate Chip Fudge ice cream night: time for me to fess up. That black panther of mine got loose again and started dragging me under. You’ll have to go to the description box for the link to the history behind that panther story: Black Panther Prophetic Dream
I don’t know if you listened to last night’s video: , but when I went to the Bible Promises last night before I began to receive the message, one of my readings was under the “Repentance” topic. And I thought, ‘uh,oh…does that have to do with me, Lord??’ I didn’t think it had to do with me…(chuckle) Very funny. Isn't it always someone else who has the problem and we're just SO clean before the Lord??? Hmmmm.
Well, here’s the story:
I received permission to get our yard cleaned up. We have a gigantic cottonwood tree in the yard and it dumped a ton of cotton pods everywhere. The animals were dragging them in, mud was forming around them because last year’s leaves were never picked up. Hey, it’s either Youtubes or yard work with three days to recover. So, that’s a no-brainer. Anyway, the Lord had given me permission to have two young men clean up the yard and put gravel down because the driveway and yard were turning to mud. I was just so happy, I’d been waiting for this for months. I expected the Rapture to happen sooner so I figured I’d have to leave that mess behind, which I didn’t like either. It’s taken several days to get the job done and I was beginning to feel my attention shift from ministry to cleaning things up.
Not good. I could feel it. Like a compulsion rising up inside of me, wanting to get everything put in order, just right, then be done and get refocused. But, these things have a life of their own! My Obsessive Compulsive streak started dragging me further and further away. Like… what about the gate that’s stretched beyond usefulness, with holes in the sagging bailing wire and odd sized boards to keep animals in? I mean it has holes everywhere, won’t stand up straight and is a real eye sore… so I figured, ‘I’ll replace it.’
I didn’t check with the Lord first. For one thing, I didn’t want to hear, “No” which would have been a reading like Lust or Money or worse yet, Pride from the Bible Promises. Oh, these are never, ever good to get. I’d better get down to the lumber yard and get that gate before I get a bad reading… I could feel that compulsive panther dragging me under, I just kept ignoring it and explaining it away, “This will be the last thing.” I kept telling myself. “Once the gate is up, I’m finished.”
Sure you are. Who are you kidding, anyway?
I didn’t ask the Lord if I could, I figured this just has to be done. But inside I could feel something taking over, a compulsion that kept finding more things for these guys to do – and believe me, there is plenty! So, I bought a nice new gate and was going to have them mount it. In the meantime, Ezekiel started getting bad readings about money, the world, your wife, lusting after a neat yard, sickness…which is all about compulsion and so on.
He just started getting these readings today, so I went off licking my wounds and the Lord confirmed it. The Black Panther was out of the bag and in control a.g.a.i.n. I repented. He was right. I should have known last night when I got Repentance in the Bible Promises and He said to me, “Just because you can’t connect, doesn’t mean I can’t connect with you. Yes, it has to be mutual but part of your problem is guilt, just like everyone else’s. Let’s put that all of that aside for now. We have work to do.”
So, in that sentence, the Lord was saying, “Yeah, you’re guilty. You’ve got guilt. A lot of people have guilt, too. But I’ve got a lot of things for you to do, so let’s just set that aside for now. We’ll come back to it…”
I was having real problems connecting because this perfectionistic, compulsive animal had been dragging me under with getting the yard in order. One thing after another: working with the guys, catching them cutting minutes off their hours, checking on them, not getting enough sleep because they came early. It was not good.
When the Lord said that about guilt last night, I thought, ‘Oh, false guilt. Noooo, not real unadulterated guilt!’ Hello…? Jesus to Clare….tune in please. You are guilty. You knew you were drifting…come on…fess up.
You can even catch me in my denial on that video, the opening paragraph when I say, “Oh, it’s that false guilt thing that keeps us from Jesus.” Right?
No, not false guilt… real guilt. So, I’m asking you, if you’re having trouble tuning in with the Lord…what’s in your craw that you’re covering over or hiding from?
Is there something you’ve known He is not happy about but you try to explain it away. Come on! Misery loves company, fess up!!
OK, that said, I repented – but during prayer that ugly old, broken down, bailing wire gate kept assaulting me. It was saying, “I’m too ugly, don’t put me put back up! You have that other new one, it’s perfect, not a mess like I am – and it will work. You don’t want to put me back up – a piece of sagging garbage full of holes that I am on your nice new gravel driveway… do you? After all, the new one is so shiny and perfect.”
So, between the Lord holding me and telling me how much He understood as I tried to worship tonight, and the thumbs down I got about the gate – I’ve been wrestling a monster! The monster of self-will, materialism and perfectionism. He just wanted me to tell you ALL about it so you could be amused at my foolishness. Of course, no one else out there can relate, can you? Well even if you could, I’m not supposed to justify my foolishness with “But Lord, I’m not the only one.”
Oh, slippery slope this Pride and Self-Will thing!
Well, He did say your problem is the same as everyone else’s…so obviously He was setting me up for today’s teaching. Guys, find your ‘black panther’ and put him in the cage. Lock him up tight and don’t let him out again. Then, sit down with a clean conscience and tune into the Lord. Try Him in these things and see if it doesn’t work.
OK, Lord I’ve exposed just one of many vices and weaknesses. Do You have a message tonight or is my folly the only message?
“Well, truth be told, I think your folly does quite nicely.
“However I want to add to that, My Brides. Oh, I love you all so dearly. But there’s an aspect of your personalities that causes you difficulties and that is holding yourselves to too high a standard. If, in your consciousness there is anything you know I am dealing with you about, you will tend to shy away from Me and not open your heart to Me all the way.
“Is it worth it, My Beloveds? Really, think on this. Weigh it in the balance – your vice or sin vs My perceivable presence in your life. You see, that’s what it comes down to: you have to make a choice, because something inside of you sees Me as the Righteous God and if you are holding out on Me, you will not quite open to Me all the way lest you expose that dark corner you’re hiding.
“Of course, there are layers of sin in your life. You can only handle so much at one time. I choose what that is going to be because I know it is time for you to deal with it so you can move on. I know you can deal with it if you are willing and the graces you need are right there – if only you will acknowledge your fault and take hold of the rope of grace so I can pull you out of the pit of your vice or sin.
“But, whether you are willing or not, as I told Clare last night: let’s put that all of that aside now. We have work to do.
“So, I am saying the same thing to you tonight. Put the guilt aside for a moment, come spend time with Me. We both know there’s a problem you haven’t been willing to work on. Staying away from Me will weaken, not strengthen you. Come to Me just as you are and we will work it out together. There is much work to do, many gifts I have for you, but this vice is in your way, psychologically. The best scenario is for you to start working on the vice or put your foot down and say ‘NO, I’m done with this.’
“But if you aren’t ready to do that, come to Me anyway. We have work to do. In the process of the work I will shift your focus off the significance of your fault and onto the fruit that is out there to be harvested. As you grow in grace and harvesting, you will begin to feel stronger, like you really want to tackle that vice, you want it out of your life. The benefits of fellowshipping with Me may overwhelm the pleasure you get from the vice.
“But do try to understand – the enemy is going to try and exploit your weakness. He’s going to distract you away from others and onto yourself with guilt, which will severely hamper your ministry and your walk. I have so much for you to do, My Brides…in the short time left. I really would like to see you overcome some things I’ve been dealing with you about. We can move on into new territory as you overcome. But, if you hang onto that vice you will be a walking pin cushion for the darts of the enemy.
“So, think about it. Come to Me and let’s get to work on it.
“I bless you now with Courage…the Courage it takes to carry your cross and be crucified on it.
“Just remember the resurrection. It is SO worth it.”
THE GOSPEL SIMPLY EXPLAINED
(You are free to copy and distribute this section to all that you wish without written permission. This section written by Mike Peralta.)
If you were to die today, would you be certain that you would go to Heaven?
If you are not certain, then please read on.
Many think that since they have lived a good life then they will probably go to Heaven.
It’s good to do good deeds and God wants that, but your good deeds cannot make up for your sins. It’s like a bank robber that gets caught and tells the police that he gives to the poor and helps people. That does not make up for the fact that he robbed the bank.
God wants everyone to go to Heaven and be with Him. That is why He sent Jesus to die on the cross for us.
In John 3:16 it says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
The word perish here means the opposite of eternal life -- which is eternal death or Hell. God gives us His instructions in the Bible to lead us to Him so that we can receive salvation. He does this because He loves us and wants everyone to be in heaven with Him when they die.
In Romans 3:23 it says, “For all have sinned; and fall short of God’s glorious standard.”
What this means is that all of us have sinned. We have all done wrong and do not deserve to be in God’s glorious presence. None of us deserve to go to Heaven. I don’t deserve to go, you don’t deserve to go. None of us deserve to go to Heaven. We have all disobeyed God in our lives.
In Romans 6:23 it says,
“For the wages of sin is DEATH, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Here “the wages of sin” means the “consequence of sin” or what we earn by sinning.
And the type of death being described here is spiritual death -- which is Hell -- as explained in the Bible in the book of Revelations where it states
“The lake of fire is the second DEATH. If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14-15.
So these last 3 scriptures are very serious because they are saying that:
1. We Have All Sinned,
2. The Consequence Of Sin Is Death, and
3. Death Is The Lake of Fire or Hell.
What this means is that we are all destined to go to Hell -- unless we allow God to intervene in our life.
But God does not want anyone to go to Hell. That is why He sent Jesus to die for all our sins on the cross.
And it is only through Jesus that we can receive eternal life. In John 14:6 Jesus said,
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.”
We can only be saved through Jesus. There is no other way. The only payment that the Father accepts for our sins is the blood of Jesus. That is why He sent Jesus to die for our sins. He did it because He loves us. It is not because we deserve it -- because none of us deserve to go to heaven.
Now it is only the children of God that get to be with God when they die. In John 1:12 God the Father, shows us how to become His child. He tells us,
“But to all who believed in Him, that is Jesus, and received Him, He gave the right to become children of God.”
And believing in Christ not only means that you believe that He exists, it also means that you put your full trust and obedience in Him. That is what is meant by believing in Him as Lord.
The word “Lord” means “King” or “Master” -- the One you trust and obey. In Romans 10:9 it says,
“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
The word “confess” means “to agree with.” So to truly confess that Jesus is Lord means that He is your Lord – the One you surrender to and trust and obey.
Now you receive Christ through faith and not by “earning it” with good deeds. It says in Ephesians 2:8-9 that,
“[* For it is by grace (or undeserved favor) that you are saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so, none of us can brag about it.” *]
You don't earn salvation -- you receive it as a free gift from God. It is like receiving a Birthday gift. You don't pay for the Birthday gift. But you do decide whether you will receive it or not.
The price of your salvation was paid for by Jesus on the cross. And the cost to Jesus was very terrible. It is way beyond what I can comprehend. Jesus suffered terribly for us so that we all could go to heaven. The one thing left for you to do, is to receive the salvation Jesus paid for as a free gift from God.
Although Jesus wants very much to give eternal life to everyone, He will not force anyone to receive Him as Lord. He gives everyone a free will choice. But He does invite everyone who wants to, to receive Him and receive eternal life.
In Revelation 3:20 Jesus says,
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him, and he with Me.”
So we all have a choice to make. We can live a self-directed life -- separate from God -- or a Christ directed life with God.
In a self-directed life you go your own way without God. But the choice is forever. If you die in that state you will forever be separated from God and perish in Hell. In Luke 13:3 Jesus warns us that “unless you repent, you too will all perish.” God does not desire this for anyone but God will not force anyone to receive Him.
In a Christ-directed life, you surrender completely to Christ and give your life to Him. God created us and He died on the cross for us. He loves us dearly. In reality, God gives us infinitely more than what we could ever give Him.
If you do give your life to Jesus then Jesus promises you eternal life as He says in John 6:40, which says,
“For My Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes, that is trusts, in Him shall have eternal life.”
By receiving Jesus as Lord of your life, you at the same time repent from going your own way -- which is always away from God.
In fact, the word “repent” means to turn around. To make a U-turn. To change from going your own way, to going God’s way by following Him. Repent also means to turn away from sin. By following Jesus you also turn away from sin.
As you receive Jesus and give your life to Him, you also ask for His forgiveness and reject all pursuit of sin.
If you have walked away from the Lord or have gone back to sinning and now want to repent of sin and come back to Jesus, you can also pray as shown below.
Do you want to pray this prayer to God? It is not to me, or to my church, or to my denomination. It is a prayer you are making to God. It is a decision you are making to God -- Who created you and loves you.
Would you like to pray this prayer to commit your life to Jesus? Say each line to God as follows:
Prayer to Receive Jesus As Lord:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and unable to save myself by my own deeds or my own way. But I do believe that You love me, and that You were sent to die on the cross for my sins. Right here and now, I repent of all sin and ask you to forgive all my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I completely give my life to You, Jesus. Thank You, dear God, for hearing and answering my prayer, and for giving me eternal life as You promised You would. Amen.”
When you prayed this did you mean it? If you did then by God’s promise you now have eternal life. Because it says in 1 John 5:13,
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
If you were to die today you would go to heaven to be with God. We know this because God always keeps His word.
