Luke 14:28 is a message to all who desire to build. Perhaps you are not building a physical edifice, but maybe you want to write a book, start a business, go back to school, or increase your prayer life. Whatever it is it's going to cost you something. It may not be financial, but it will definitely require that you to
I was praying about a number of things. My heart was restless. I had gotten out of my personal prayer closet. Have you ever been in a place when you are praying, but there seems to be no response? What do you do? Do you keep pressing in or do you attempt to resolve the matter by doing your own thing? Do you keep waiting? Perhaps you call a friend or discuss the matter with someone else you may trust. I had come home from a long day at work.
Are you running from your Kingdom assignment? Do you know what God has called you to do and, yet you run from it? In this message we will take closer look at the life of the prophet Jonah. Jonah was documented as one who knowingly ran from his assignment. God handpicked Jonah to carry a message to Nineveh. You see,the news of Nineveh's wickedness had come before God and He needed someone to carry a warning to the people in Nineveh. God, in His mercy does nothing unless He first informs His servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7). The hour is late and all hands are needed to occupy and fulfill their God-given tasks. Enough said, let's look at the five ways to tell if you are running from the assignment God has called to do.
We have entered a season of great shaking. The shaking comes to purify, to expose, uproot, and to bring forth the new. God is not like man that He should lie, if He said it, it shall be so! I encourage you to become a part of our Issachar Tribe for this season will require you to connect to other believers as the days get darker. God is moving across the land in a new way and only those with "ears to hear and a heart cleansed with repentance" will understand the next move of God. I write to share what God spoke to me. I believe this is a word for those who honor the anointing on my life.
I haven't post in a while. I guess you knew that if you've been to the site lately. But, as a writing prophet I write daily. My focus over the last few months has been a whirlwind of new challenges. Some good, others not so good, but in the midst of it all I continued to maintain our monthly scribe tribe news, Issachar Report (formerly the Scribal Watch Report) and stay close to God.
In the words of Charles Dickens, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Look around it doesn't take a prophet or a rocket scientist to know that we live in a world that seems to be spinning out of control. On a daily basis our minds are bombarded with stories of violence, sadness, crime, devastation, perversion, unusual weather phenomenon, and more! There is a place in Christ where peace and solitude can be found. His word says, "You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore" (Psalm 16:11).
My goal is not to stir fear, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and a sound mind! This message is to those with "ears to hear." Get in position NOW! Today, I turned on The Weather Channel and saw multiple hurricane systems swarming in the Atlantic. The U.S. hasn't fully recovered from Hurricane Harvey and Irma and now there are two more and they are making a beeline toward the U.S. What does this mean? What is God saying? Where is America heading? Let's face it, what is happening in America is not only for this nation, this is a global shift! The shift is happening suddenly and without a doubt.
Three times in the last two weeks I attempted to release a word for God's people to cry out for America. Each time the message's recording did not save. Only those who were online at the time heard the message. Pray now! Ask God for mercy! Ask for God to take the devil OUT of the storm and to release the call for true repentance to come forth! Ask God to cause the Hurricanes to dissipate, to reduce in size, to turn away, to lessen it's winds... PRAY! What is God saying in this hour?
Be honest. Are you called to write prophetically, but find it difficult to schedule the time to write? Have you desired to write a book, but just can't seem to consistently squeeze out any time, not even 10 minutes to start? Notice, the word consistently? Perhaps you find the time to write, but your notes are everywhere. Disorganization makes it even more challenging to finish anything. Well, you may not like what am about to say, but truth hurts until you make the adjustments needed to find relief.
