Adrift at Sea
October 28th, 2009
Via Priscilla Van Sutphin
I was remembering this old Paul Revere thing…”One if by land, two if by sea”
After getting this title from the Lord. [ The Lord usually starts by giving me
The title of the word.]
Excerpt from the midnight ride of Paul Revere:
[He said to his friend, "If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
Of the North Church tower as a signal light,--
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country folk to be up and to arm."]
The still small voice said:
“ Have you not seen ? Have you not heard, the LORD YOUR GOD sits above the heavens and the earth is His footstool. He brings princes to nothing. Nothing is too hard for Him. NOTHING is too big for Him to care for. Why do you strive. Have you no TRUST in ME ? AM I SO SMALL in your eyes that you think I am unable or unwilling to help. The unbelief in My church is a stench in My nostrils. You misrepresent My character and underestimate what I can do, then come to me wanting ME to bail you out as if I’m your LAST RESORT ! Of course I love you and want to help you. But you are like a ship on the sea, adrift without aim or course, trusting only in yourself !
Isa 40:21-23 NKJV Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? 22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. 23 He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.
It is MY WIND , the Wind of My HOLY SPIRIT that is to lead and guide you. IF you are not dependent on ME in this hour, you will perish, as the grass. You take things in your own hands, then blame ME because it doesn’t work out for you. You think everything that comes into your head comes from ME, when the enemy has fooled you and deceived you into delusions and doctrines of demons, then blame ME, and accuse Me of unrighteousness !
HOW do you think this world was made ? HOW do you think it will end ? Do you REALLY know what it means to be a Christian ? You lie to yourself and commit adulteries in your heart with other men and women, trusting in other lovers, trusting in yourself and your own actions becoming self sufficient, then wonder why I won’t help you. REPENT and return to the guardian of HOPE.”
Zech 9:12 NKJV Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.
“ Trust in the Lord with all of your heart I said. But you have become self idolatrous in all your ways. REPENT and RETURN, so that times of refreshing may come upon you. For YOU are my love, but you have left your FIRST LOVE. You have forgotten the main things, FAITH, MERCY, Justice for the stranger. REPENT and care for one another. LOVE one another.
Matt 23:23-24 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! NKJV
Turn from your adulterous ways, abandoning what matters, and opting for entertainment, and self luxury. REPENT ! For the KINGDOM OF GOD is at the door. The WIND of My Spirit is coming with POWER, and if you HUMBLE yourself and pray, if you DESIRE to be holy, and humble, then You will receive all you need and ask for. But if you continue in bitterness and doubt, skepticism, and hatreds, bickering and gossiping and devouring one another, you will feel My wrath in a way you will find undesirable. MY GLORY will expose the wickedness of your own heart as it manifests in your midst.
THE FEAR OF THE LORD is the beginning of wisdom. It has been abandoned in my church for seeking experiences without awe for Who I AM. I am not your play thing. I AM THE ALMIGHTY GOD. THE KING OF KINGS and the LORD OF LORDS. I AM THE MIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL. THE WAR HAS BEGUN FULL FORCE, and is going to get more INTENSE. How will you fight with holes in your armor ? REPENT I TELL YOU, and I will come to you and refresh you and burn in you. I will break every chain that has bound you. BUT YOU MUST HUMBLE YOURSELVES BEFORE ME.
I will NOT be mocked. The day has come and the night is getting darker. The people are filled with darkness and I will soon ARISE to take MY STAND ON THE EARTH. BE FOUND IN ME. OPEN YOUR HEARTS to the JOY of repentance. For I AM MERCY. I AM LOVE. I will NOT condemn you, but only ask that you repent.
I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU, if you will fight for me. LOVE ONE ANOTHER as I HAVE loved and been patient with you. For you know that you have received MUCH GRACE given all your own weaknesses and sins. Have that same patience in you which is in Christ JESUS. Put on the mind of CHRIST. Recognize that the hour is SHORT. REACH OUT AROUND YOU TO THE LOST. The war of all wars has begun to increase in intensity. ARISE in warfare WORSHIP. GIRD YOUR SWORDS on your sides. Declare My WORD. BELIEVE I am with you. I AM EMMANUEL, GOD WITH YOU. I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. Men or women may forsake you but I WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU.”
Ex 15:1-12 NKJV THE SONG OF MOSES [part of]
15 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying:
"I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! 2 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father's God, and I will exalt Him. 3 The Lord is a man of war; The Lord is His name. 4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. 5 The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone.
6 "Your right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces. 7 And in the greatness of Your excellence You have overthrown those who rose against You; You sent forth Your wrath; It consumed them like stubble. 8 And with the blast of Your nostrils the waters were gathered together; The floods stood upright like a heap; The depths congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, 'I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, My hand shall destroy them.' 10 You blew with Your wind, The sea covered them; They sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11 "Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders? 12 You stretched out Your right hand; The earth swallowed them.
“ How do you see your enemies ? Do you love your enemies ? Do you not see that if you respond in an opposite spirit, THEN you will have the victory ? But if you respond as the world responds, you will get what the world gets.
YOU ARE MINE, and I AM YOURS. So believe it, and act like it ! Depend on ME to defend you and for WHAT TO DO. I will be at your right hand as you Walk through these times. Miracles will erupt as you respond IN THE SPIRIT, and not in the flesh.”
Rev 12:10-12 NKJV Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."
Rev 18:19 NKJV "They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'
Rev 18:21-23 NKJV Finality of Babylon's Fall
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. 22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. 23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
