School of the Prophets Part 1
Ecclesiastes 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
Ecclesiastes 1:15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Matthew 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Matthew 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Don’t allow your vision to be clouded by the challenges of today, My loves, but rather live in celebration of tomorrow–that wonderful world that awaits you!
Psalm 66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
Psalm 66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
Psalm 66:12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
Spirit helper: Things in the world aren’t always going to be easy. They aren’t going to seem easy. They aren’t going to be problem-free, and it’s not often going to look like we’re winning. But that’s what “taking it by faith” is all about. That’s what it’s all about–just standing on the Word and believing that the Lord is going to do it (ML #3073).
(From Jesus with Love 1:34)
He knows the tiredness I feel, and is there to hold me.
“I love looking at You, Darling. You are so inviting and charming. I could never get enough of You.”
I begin to not feel so tired anymore, but want to feel and know His love in every way I can.
I love His intimate love. …
This Earth and your short life here is a testing ground, there are no two ways about it. There’s no way to come to Earth, learn what you need to learn, grow in the ways your spirit needs to grow, experience what you need to experience, and accomplish what you need to accomplish without this sore‚ painful testing. That’s the Earth life. That’s life experience on Earth, and that’s why what you learn during your life on Earth is so valuable–irreplaceable, really–because it’s so hard earned.
Yes, you have the keys. You have the spiritual weapons. You have spirit helpers. You have so much knowledge of the supernatural realm and how it intersects and works with the physical realm. Those are wonderful hints, clues, shortcuts in some ways. But there are limits to how much I can deliver you from the difficulties without taking away your honor, your reward, your testimony, your privilege.
“What are you living for? Are you living for the things of this world, or are you giving your life in sacrifice for the Kingdom of God? There is no sacrifice that could ever pay for what Jesus has already paid, so you see, there really is no sacrifice.”
Even though this battle is manifested in the physical, it is a spiritual battle and can only be won in the spirit. Call on the power of the keys and intercede on the behalf of those who are struggling, and a great victory will come about through your prayers.
My loves, there’s no “secret answer” that I can give you that is going to see you through the tough times you’re experiencing now, or the ones you’re going to go through in the future. But what will see you through is faith–faith that never lets go, that never gives up.
You don’t have to feel like you have great faith. You don’t have to feel like a spiritual giant. All you have to do is stick it out, clinging to the anchor of My Word no matter what things look like around you, and eventually you will win the reward of the promise.
It’s tough and hard. I’m sorry. I know you struggle sometimes, and it seems like nothing makes sense. But if you compare your situation with the other missionaries and prophets of history, you will see that they didn’t have it any easier. They had their own trials and tests. They prayed desperately for the answers they felt they needed, and then patiently endured when the answers seemed to be so slow in coming–or didn’t come at all, from what they could see. They went through the fire just like you are going through the fire‚ and in some cases their fire was even hotter.
I know what each person needs to bring out the best in them, to refine their faith, to make them pure gold. I don’t rejoice to see you in the fire, but I do rejoice when I see your faith stand the test–because then I know that you have gained the reward of the promise, you have endured, and the blessing and honor is yours for all eternity.
It’s hard to fight the battles day after day. They almost always seem small compared to the really great goals that are before you. You’d much rather be fighting for something that you see as glorious and magnificent. But you know, great and magnificent victories arise from battles of all sizes. And if you will step back, you’ll remember that yours is the most magnificent cause of all time. It’s worth living and dying for.
It’s just that dying daily is so hard, takes so long, and sometimes you lose sight of the goal.
But, My loves, you are doing it. You’re running the race. Your names are being inscribed in the heavenly halls of fame as you run and don’t give up.
If everything was easy, I wouldn’t need you so desperately–because there would be plenty of people willing to serve Me and do what you’re doing. It’s hard, it requires so much sacrifice, faith, and endurance‚ and that’s why you are rare, priceless, extremely valuable–and why I will reward you accordingly, above all you can imagine.
So don’t give up‚ My loves. Don’t be weary in well-doing. Strengthen your faith in My Word. Drink it in. Let it sustain you. If you’re losing perspective, return to your faith, return to the perspective of My Word, and hold on! The victory is coming, and so is the reward, the promise‚ the blessing.
I give you My Word to strengthen you. I give you the keys to do miracles for you. I give you My love to sustain you. But you must endure. That is what you must do, and that is what you are rewarded for–your faith, your endurance.
