The Changes In Me One Month Later

I am writing an update for the changes in me. I want to log what God is doing in my life, that is all. Since the last entry God showed me that He did in fact begin the sanctification process in me 5 years ago but I stopped it. I wrote about what He was doing in my journal. He was weeding out selfishness, addictions, and problems with my speech. Like I have said before I gave up on the process because I would fail and be hard on myself and quit. Now that I know this about myself, I can face the feeling of inadequacy head on and slay it down when it starts to creep up again. So far this hasn’t happened. The main thing I have been learning is God wants me to put His Word in my heart because when you have His Word memorized it dwells in your being, in your heart. As the Bible says, what is in your heart is what comes out of your mouth. Also, God wants me to be like Jesus. When I have God’s Word in my heart I have the tools to be able to be more like Jesus. The Bible says to bring every thought unto the obedience of Christ. This helps to become more like Him.  So, I am memorizing scripture not to flaunt it, not out of duty, but to become more like Jesus and this is what pleases God. I remember scripture to dwell on good thoughts and out of those thoughts come good words and out of that comes good deeds and a good life, like God intended.  This is how we live and do God’s Word. It has been surprising to me how situations come up and scripture comes to my mind as an answer or just as a guide line of which way to go. I had another significant dream, in the dream I said something that I believe came from God. The line was this: The hardest thing to learn about salvation is the grace.

I thought, how do you “learn” grace?  I was led to see that Jesus is grace and we know Jesus is referred to as The Word in the book of John. Just like in my other dream in heaven when I said Jesus was the Word in the beginning, and The Word was with God. The actual scripture is the first one I have memorized. It’s John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. So, Jesus is grace and the Word. I felt God saying that what I have to learn is to be more like Jesus. How do I do that? First I study His character, which I am doing a study on that with God Treks. The other meaning I got is to let God’s grace work through me to be able to be like Jesus. I can’t do it myself, it has to be through the Holy Spirit. The final message I got is this: Jesus is the Word, learn grace (Jesus) ( Word), learn Jesus’ words. I was then led to the scripture, Mark 9:7, Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and [a]a voice came out of the cloud, “This is My beloved Son. Listen to Him and obey Him!” God is showing me the first step to sanctification. Putting His Word in my mind , heart and mouth will produce goodness.  Deuteronomy 32:47, They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.” Romans 16:24, The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (The Messiah) be with you all. Amen.

Mark 7:15 Jesus said,  there is nothing outside a man [such as food] which by going into him can defile him [morally or spiritually]; but the things which come out of [the heart of] a man are what defile and dishonor him.

The Bible

The-Bible-Miniseries-DVD

I watched this movie in March 2013 on T.V.  I didn’t know God would speak to me all through the beginning of this series. Only in the beginning did He speak. The middle and end I didn’t get anything, but I want to share what came to me from the start. The movie is The Bible come to life. So it begins with the beginning of the Bible naturally. What I’m going to write are short sentences that were spoken to me while watching the movie. Like what I saw translated to what God was saying to me. The beginning is what was said in the movie and I will differentiate it. This is meant to encourage you, it encourages me when I am down.

From the movie: The Bible

God restores humanity to Himself.

The stories define who we are.

ONE Father in Heaven

ONE teacher and He is Jesus Christ

Choices we make, how we live, how we love, how we struggle and overcome.

Here is what came to me while watching The Bible:

When God speaks and gives promises BELIEVE or you will delay your blessing or you may not even get it.

NEVER tell God NO, do not be disobedient, OBEY, never be displeased with what God provides. [ This came to me when Lot’s wife was being displeased with what Abraham was telling them.]

FAITH in what you can not see.

NEVER go against what you know God is telling you to do.

DO NOT come up with your own solutions. FOLLOW GOD ONLY even when it looks like He isn’t working. [ Again watching the story of Lot and his wife].

TRUST IN GOD IN ALL THINGS YOU DO!

GOD IS WITH US! [ I noticed they said this a lot and I feel like it gives your spirit confirmation so I do this a lot myself, to remind myself that He is with me just like He was with them].

Do not let PRIDE overtake you.

Do not ever confess: I can’t, I won’t

With God YOU CAN, YOU WILL

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE to believe as long as you are here on this earth.

ALWAYS be willing to help anyone.

NEVER let temptation be so great as to defer you from the thing God has said to do.

Be a warrior against evil because you know God is with you.

When you know you are sent by God NOTHING can stop you from accomplishing what God has willed.

No evil can hinder you.

Do not look back at the past, it is gone, if you do you will die in the moment. [ This was when Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt].

Sometimes God calls us to do emotionally hard things.

To be chosen by God is a blessing and a test. [ When Abraham was asked to sacrifice Issac].

Prove faith again and again.

God wants to be FIRST in our hearts, minds and lives!

When we obey God even if it hurts our heart, we prove we trust Him.

Have faith and when we learn this about ourselves through this test, we have magnificent joy! [ This was when Abraham was going through with what God asked and after he proved his faith God provided the ram. Abraham had enormous joy].

When we know we are in harmony with God’s will it is a joyous experience!

Experience means to see, to hear, to feel with my heart.

To experience God we have to: SEE [ His vision], KNOW [ His will], HEAR [ God’s voice], FEEL [ with my heart].

The Devil wants us to think we are nothing to God because of our sin.

With God’s power we are set free, we can do all things through Christ [ His power].

We are free in God, with God.

Stay in God and you will continually be free! It is on going. Stay free by abiding in THE WORD OF GOD!

DO NOT FORGET GOD!

HE NEVER FORGETS YOU!

NO MAN can conquer God.

NO DEVIL can conquer God.

So who can defeat us? NO ONE.

We have to belong to God to know this. By our faith in Jesus we become a child of God.

Movie said this: God saved me for a purpose.

What came to me:

trust God, do not question His ways, His ways are not our ways. [Which it says this in the Bible].

Confess [ say out loud ] what you believe, what God says is true, IT WILL COME TO PASS!

Rebellion [ telling God no ] ,will lead to evil things you never dreamed of.

Stay with God

Trust God

Faith in God

Do exactly as God tells you to be spared of distress, destruction and trouble.

Our freedom comes with a price.

Jesus paid it on the cross.

The Devil will pay in the end. He will lose for our freedom and victory.

When the Devil thinks he has you in a trap, God will provide the way out. He will outsmart the Devil because He is God! [ This was when Moses had the Red Sea in front of him and the Pharaoh  behind him ]. It also says this in the Bible.

GOD LOVES YOU!

HE IS GOOD!

FOLLOW GOD
TRUST GOD
OBEY GOD

Ask God what to do so He can answer. You have to ask to get the answer! [ It says in the Bible you do not have because you do not ask].

Declare always, God is with me, to overcome evil.

Do not be afraid when your in the hand of God, He’s got you.

He will not let you down in your trouble.

Reach and grab His hand, have faith to reach, then grab hold, now don’t let go of God!

Hurry! The enemy is coming! Come to God while you can!

God doesn’t want any of His children to perish.

Remember [ keep it fresh in your mind] the freedom He gave so as to not fall into sin again and forget God.

Getting free is a long way to come but BECOMING FREE and getting saved is the beginning of the journey. [ This was when the Israelites made it to the other side of the Red Sea].

Movie said this: Trust God, Follow His Path. Be true to God and He will keep His promises.

What was said to me:

One man’s dream is another man’s future. [ When Moses knew He wouldn’t see the promised land but Joshua would].

If you do not fight for yourself at least fight for God.

Love not for yourself, love for God.

Let everything you do be for His glory not your own.

 

 

Be Like Mary

Mary is beautiful in my eyes because of her willingness to obey.  Luke 1:38, 38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant[a] of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. I know in my life I have wanted to obey, but couldn’t muster up the ability to do it.  I pray to be willing. I pray this whenever I feel myself slipping back into just wanting to be in my cave. When we look at our circumstances around us and they don’t line up with what God is saying in our heart, we need to trust Him, obey Him, cooperate with Him, to see a miracle! This is when miracles happen! When we are in alignment with God’s divine will. Mary did all this and gave birth to our Savior, Jesus Christ! God’s ways  are higher than our ways, Isaiah 55:8-9, For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

They don’t make sense in our natural minds, but that’s why we need to trust, obey and cooperate. Follow as Mary did and you will experience God in your own life!
