Rom 8:29-39 AMP
29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. 31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] [Ps 118:6.] 32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?
33 Who shall bring any charge against God's elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?] 34 Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? 35 Who shall ever separate us from Christ's love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?
36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. [Ps 44:22.] 37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Song came to mind: Nothing shall separate us from the Love of God. By Noel Richards
Then I heard…
“NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING can separate those who follow ME from MY LOVE.
NOTHING ! There is nothing in heaven or on earth, or under the earth that will be able to keep My beloveds from My love and defense. I said I would break every chain that encumbers. I said I would destroy the yoke of the enemy in your lives and I will.
I said I would pour out MY GLORY and I WILL. Why do the nations rage and the people plot vain things ?”
Ps 2:1-5 NKJV Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, 3 "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us." 4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. 5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“The deception of the enemy is believed only when you do not yield to the desire for obedience and righteousness. But those who hunger and thirst for righteousness WILL BE FILLED. So many have wandered away from the truth, thus they are prone to fall into deception and delusion, because they want the easy life, the slippery path that is wide. But those who WANT TRUTH, and those who WANT righteousness, will not be fooled. I will not allow them to be fooled for long. For they will SEE the fruits and judge by the fruit exhibited in others. So don’t worry about who is blind and who is seeing. Let me sort it out for them as each person has their unique abilities and backgrounds, and all who HEAR will HEAR. Those who don’t WANT to hear will stay deaf. Just speak the truth that I TELL YOU, when I tell you.”
2 Thess 2:7-12 NKJV For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
2 Thess 2:9-10 AMP The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels — [all of them] lying wonders — 10 And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.
Word for wonder here is: NT:5059 te/ra$ teras (ter'-as); of uncertain affinity; a prodigy or omen: KJV - wonder.
“Beloveds, KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME ! KEEP PRAISING in the midst of dark times !
Remember Paul and Barnabas singing in jail ? Keep in THANKFULNESS even when you see people falling away into deception and given over to the enemy. Yes, it breaks your heart that many will even be good friends or family. Strengthen yourself in My LOVE, and the WORD. PRAY for all you love. MY BLOOD is stronger than any weapon of the enemy. MY LOVE is as strong as death ! There will be much confusion with the delusion. So keep in praise, in worship, in prayer and communion with ME. For there will also be GREAT HARVEST in this hour and I need you focused on ME. FOR I AM POURING OUT MY GLORY, and soon it will escalate into greater strength and the FEAR OF THE LORD will descend on whole congregations, on whole cities and regions.”
Acts 16:22-26 NKJV And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
The Philippian Jailer Saved - 25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.
“Do not fear ~ and do not accuse things which you know nothing about first hand. Instead, come to ME and ask of ME for TRUTH. LOOK TO ME FOR YOUR HEALING AND SALVATION, NOT TO MEN. Have FAITH enough to know that I’m in control of all things in heaven and on earth. WAIT, WAIT on ME for direction and guidance for there is much confusion now as men relate their revelations, but the timing and the execution is in MY HANDS. I will show you what direction to go or not go if you ask !”
Prov 17:14-15 NKJV
14 The beginning of strife is like releasing water; Therefore stop contention before a quarrel starts. 15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, Both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.
Isa 40:28-31 AMP
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding. 29 He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. [2 Cor 12:9.] 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; 31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. [Heb 12:1-3.]
“I RIDE ON THE WINGS OF THE WIND, AND I AM THE GOD OF JESHURUN WHO WAS,WHO IS, AND WHO IS TO COME. THERE IS NOONE LIKE ME. THERE IS NO THING LIKE ME. THERE IS NO CREATED THING THAT CAN HEAL AS I HEAL, THAT CAN REVEAL AS I REVEAL. MY UNDERSTANDING IS BEYOND MAN’S COMPREHENSION. MY WISDOM IS ABOVE ALL MAN’S WISDOM. SO COME TO ME. SIT WITH ME. LET ME SHOW YOU THE GREAT AND MARVELOUS THINGS I HAVE SAVED FOR YOU IN THIS GENERATION TO REVEAL ! KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON ME AND I WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU.”
Jer 33:3 AMP Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Deut 32:15-16 NKJV "But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; You grew fat, you grew thick, You are obese! Then he forsook God who made him, And scornfully esteemed the Rock of his salvation. 16 They provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods; with abominations they provoked Him to anger.
Deut 33:26-27 NKJV "There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to help you, and in His excellency on the clouds. 27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, 'Destroy!'
“There are many who have great PRIDE in their revelations and the gifts I’ve given them who will be corrected by ME and those I’VE SENT. So again, PRAY, and be swift to HEAR, and SLOW to speak ! WAIT on ME ! I am pouring out My Spirit on ALL FLESH. REMEMBER MY WORD ! I WILL HAVE A GLORIOUS BRIDE. She cannot be glorious without MY GLORY. For the glory of man is fading away and the knowledge of MY GLORY will fill the earth like the water covers the sea. I will invade every household, every institution, every city, every government office, every secret meeting! I will leave NO STONE unturned because I have promised to reveal Myself to all before the great and terrible day of the LORD which is at hand ! I am not willing that any perish.
Judgments have started for some time now, and will escalate. So PREACH THE TRUTH seasoned with MY LOVE and PEACE, JOY and KINDNESS ! How will they know if you sit in your house and touch no one ? NOW people are talking aren’t they ? They are amazed by what they see, yet they do not know the fullness yet of what I will do. Some think this healing move is something, when the fullness is not yet come. For I said that in REPENTANCE there is JOY. I have promised to break every CHAIN on MY PEOPLE, and to bring in a great harvest ! As the judgments increase there will be a destruction to all paraphernalia people hang on to ! You will only have ME to hold on to.
Remember that each man has his own will with which to decide for good or for evil. Remember that I said My glory would arise upon you in this hour and be SEEN upon you.
Remember that I AM THE LORD AND THERE IS NO OTHER.
Remember that I told you to walk in the light as I AM IN THE LIGHT !
Remember that I am the LORD and that I live in you that you may TRAMPLE on serpents and scorpions and all the power of the evil one !
Remember that nothing can separate you from ME, for I will fight along side of you and will never leave you nor forsake you !
Remember that MY GRACE will endure forever for all who call upon the name of the Lord WILL be saved !”
Luke 15:7 AMP Thus, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one [especially] wicked person who repents ( changes his mind, abhorring his errors and misdeeds, and determines to enter upon a better course of life) than over ninety-nine righteous persons who have no need of repentance.
Acts 20:21 AMP But constantly and earnestly I bore testimony both to Jews and Greeks, urging them to turn in repentance [that is due] to God and to have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ [that is due Him].
2 Peter 3:9 AMP The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.
2 Peter 3:11-12 AMP Since all these things are thus in the process of being dissolved, what kind of person ought [each of] you to be [in the meanwhile] in consecrated and holy behavior and devout and godly qualities, 12 While you wait and earnestly long for (expect and hasten) the coming of the day of God by reason of which the flaming heavens will be dissolved, and the [material] elements [of the universe] will flare and melt with fire? [Isa 34:4.]
Joel 2:28-32 AMP
28 And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. 29 Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit. 30 And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. [Isa 13:6,9-11; 24:21-23; Ezek 32:7-10; Matt 24:29,30; Rev 6:12-17.] 32 And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors] shall be those whom the Lord calls. [Acts 2:17-21; Rom 10:13.]
