Have you been saturated?

Have you been saturated in Me, My spirit and My word? Are you full? Are you full of Me, My spirit and My word?  For those who are saturated ooze out all I am. They drip with all I am, all I have. For I am love. Many of My people are just dried up. They have become husks of who I was. They cannot and do not show forth who I am. I tell you today, I am available to all. All who would humble themselves and call upon Me, not their idea of Me. Allow Me to fill you and saturate you with Me. Allow Me to fill you up so you may pour out all of whom I am. Those who are saturated with Me, they act as Me, they walk as Me, they talk as Me. So allow Me to saturate your life today. Allow Me to consume EVERY area of your life sayeth the Lord God Jehovah.

Are you desperate for more?

Are you desperate for more? For just when you think I cannot give anything better, I do. Just when you believe there is nothing greater, I will show you greater. All you need is a humble heart, to be a willing vessel. Come to Me with a willing and obedient heart and see. Come and experience the fresh new things I have to show you, that I have to do through you. So seek Me. Hunger for Me. Thirst for Me and I will be found of you. I will move through you. I will move in ways you have never seen before says the Lord of hosts.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Humble before a Holy God – by Tanner age 18

When I first started seeking to know the Lord, I began to see things in my life that I did that did not please the Lord. I wanted to please the Lord and I did not like the fact that I was doing things that were contrary to God and His purposes. So, I asked God, “I love you Lord and there are things that I do that I know are wrong and I don’t want to do them, God please show me the source.” God then spoke to my heart and said “Pride, pride is the root, if you get rid of pride sin will leave with it.” That is what the body of Christ needs to see. Pride is the enemy. Pride is the source of sin. Pride keeps us from the Lord. “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6) The devil operates under pride. For anyone to live a life worthy of the price Jesus paid, pride must be removed. The only way pride is done away with in the life of a believer is through intimate time spent with the Lord. Prayer, fasting, laying down our lives for the Lord, giving Him our time for a sacrifice, doing things we don’t feel like doing for Him and His glory. We must submit to the Lord for Him to have His way in our lives. Submission takes humility and humility is opposite of pride. When we lay our desires down and let God do the work; His transforming power is allowed to move in our lives. If we humble ourselves in faith that God will do a work; He will send his grace to change us “Ye are saved by grace through faith.” (Ephesians 2:8) “…gives grace to the humble.” All we have to do is let go of our desires and let Him do the work. He wants to change you…let Him.

James 4:6 (KJV) But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Will you dine with Me?

I ask of you, will you come in and sup with Me? Will you eat the bread of life? For I have given myself for you. I desire to commune with My beloved. Too many have placed their importance on other things, some things which seem notable and right, some which are foolish and outright sin. All things can be replaced, yet time cannot. So I say, spend time with Me. Those who spend time with Me become just like Me. Come, eat the manna from heaven. Drink up the wine of My spirit. Let us commune together and become one, for that is why I came sayeth the Lord.

Are you thirsty?

Let Me saturate you! Let Me fill you with the oil of My spirit. Allow Me to quench your thirst and fill you to overflowing. There are many who do not realize they are dry. They do not understand why they have became weary and worn out. It is because they are not full. They have starved themselves of the Word. They have not drank in deep from the wells of living water. I have said, many times, come, ALL who are thirsty, I will give you drink. I say come, let Me satisfy the longing soul.  Let Me be that water that never runs dry. Allow Me to be your everlasting flow. Just come, taste and see that I am good. Come and I will fulfill your longing soul. I will satisfy and quench your thirst to all who ask sayeth the Lord.

Are you prepared for more?

Is your cup empty? Is it half full? Does it still have a remnant of the past, of what used to be? I tell you, unless the cup is empty, I cannot, I will not fill it again. For if the oil is bad, if the oil is old, if the oil is rancid, it will contaminate all the new. So let go, let go of the old, the stale and the rancid. Behold, I do a new thing. Clean the inside of the cup. Be prepared. Be washed. Be ready for a fresh infilling of My spirit. For as you pour out and empty yourself, you will be filled again and again and again. The oil that flows never goes stale. The oil that flows never goes stagnant. The oil that flows does not go rancid. So allow Me to clean you, be prepared to flow in Me and in My spirit sayeth the Lord God Almighty.

Have you been refreshed?

I would ask you, have you been refreshed? No? Well, allow My living waters to wash over you. Allow the rain of My spirit to flood every area of your life. Are you dry and weary? Then come to Me, drink deep of the living waters. Come into My presence with a pure heart. Come with praise and worship. Allow Me to be your pillar of cloud by day and your pillar of fire by night. Allow My love to permeate your very soul and restore and refresh you. For today is the day of refreshing. Today is the day, I have come to abide in and with you sayeth the Lord of hosts.

Have you taken it in?

Have you taken in My word? Have you allowed it to become a part of you? Has My visage shown forth? As you take in My word and allow My spirit to fill you, you become more like Me. Soon, all those around you will only see Me. Take in all I have for you. Drink deep from the cup in My hand. Rest in Me and allow Me to open the floodgates of heaven. For I will pour out as much as you will allow Me to. I will pour into you as much as you will take in, as little or as much you yield to Me. I am willing to give you so much more. For I desire you to shine forth and show forth who I am, to be the direct reflection of Me on this earth sayeth the Lord.

Do you know it?

Do you know it? Do you believe it? Nothing can separate you from My love. Not height, nor depth, nor angel, nor demon, nor principality or sin. For remember, I loved you while you were yet in sin. Nothing can separate Me from loving you. Run as you may, hide as you might, I still love you. Love you as I do, I am a just God. I am a righteous God. I punish the wicked and turn away from the unjust. I correct MY children as a earthly father corrects his own, to keep them, for I love them. For lo, I say it again, I love My children. Yes, some know it not. Come unto Me and know My love for you says the Lord.

Repentance and judgment – by Tanner age 18

Two words that are often misunderstood are repentance and judgment. Generally speaking most people think repentance is saying “I’m sorry” and they think that judgment is punishment. Repentance is a change of heart/mind. Judgment or discernment is determining of what sort something is(good or bad in this case). The reason why people fear judgment so greatly is because they know that they have done wrong and they know they will be judged according to that and punished for their deeds. Judgment proceeds punishment or reward. You are judged righteous or unrighteous and are rewarded for righteousness and punished for unrighteousness. Unfortunately, because of Adam we are judged unrighteous no matter what we say or do. So, unless something CHANGES we cannot be counted righteous and rewarded. Jesus came to CHANGE the relationship status between man and God. Man was separated from God because of man’s now unrighteous nature. Jesus through the shedding of His blood, introduced a new system by which we become righteous. So, we change or repent from unrighteousness to righteousness. When we come to God with our change of heart/mind having faith that He will make us righteous, God sends His grace to change us from unrighteousness to righteousness.(Ephesians 2:8) At this point, all the old deeds, natures, lusts and desires have passed away and all new ones come.(1Corinthians 5:17) Now, you are judged righteous and will be rewarded not because of anything we have done but because of God’s love for us.(Ephesians 2:9) We must make the decision to repent from Adam’s unrighteousness and receive God’s grace so we may be judged righteous in God’s eyes on that day. God has so much for us, we just have to turn away from what we have now, take the step of faith toward Him and receive all that He has to give. It’s not hard, just believe and receive the gift He has for you…a robe of righteousness.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Titus 3:5  (KJV)

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost

Can I love you?

Have you been swept away? Have you been swept away with My love for you, with My glory, with My presence and My Spirit? Will you allow Me to? Allow Me to sweep you away. Allow Me to flood over you and sweep you off your feet. Allow Me to come in and flood your being. For it is My good pleasure, it is My desire, to fill you with all I am. Let Me sweep you away with Me, for I desire you. I desire to encompass you with My love, to cover you and wrap myself around you. For as you yield yourself to Me, I will come, I will come in like a flood. I will fill you to overflowing. I will make myself known to you. For you are My beloved and I love you sayeth the Lord.

What do you desire?

How badly do you want it? Is it enough to cry out when everyone else tells you to be silent? Is it enough to be condemned by those you love and those around you? Does not My word say, as the deer pants for the water so My soul longeth after thee? How desperate are you? For I hear the cry of the desperate. My ear is not deaf to those who are yearning. Let Me give to you that which you desire. For those who desire a touch from Me WILL receive it. For I see the depths of the heart. I will divide between soul and spirit. I say to you, seek Me. Be desperate for Me. Ask of Me. I will give myself to you and supply you with an over abundance of My presence, My spirit and My joy sayeth the Lord of hosts.
