SOMMER FAMILY BLESSING

Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:

WORD FROM THE LORD, FAMILY, and MINISTRY.

WORD FROM THE LORD
Every day I spend time with the Lord in the morning and He speaks to my heart words that are encouraging, exhorting and sometimes rebuking.

At first, I felt not to share these words with others, but then I realized I am just one of His followers. There are many people who need a word daily from the Lord, but they do not have the time to seek Him. This is why I decided to share the words I received from time to time. The messages are in first person as the the Lord relayed them to my spirtual ears.

FAMILY
We have three sons and nine grandchildren. There is something new happening all the time in the Sommer family. I will post some of these events of interest.

MINISTRY
Tom and I have traveled the world. To find out more about our ministry you may consult our webpage -
http://www.voiceofthesword.com/.
I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

PAST PERFORMANCE

Defining life by past performances is not what I do. I view you today. What you have confessed in the past is removed from your book of life. When you confess your sins to Me with a repentant heart, I remove your transgressions and sins as far as the east is from the west. Though your sins be as scarlet, I make them white as snow when your sins have been placed under My blood.

You also are not to define others by their past. Look at people as they are today and love them for who they are, not what they do or say. It was a privilege for Me to offer My life's blood to remove your sins and the sins of all who believe in Me. Never take for granted the price I paid to enable you to live a life free from the bondage of sin and death. Remember always that Father sent Me to die for the sins of the whole world. Sadly, the whole world will not believe and receive what I purchased for them when I died on the tree.

When you consider that everyone you encounter today was worth the price I paid, you will see them as a priceless treasure.

ISAIAH 1:18; PSALM 103:12; 1 JOHN 1:9

POSITION

Many in the world treasure their position in life, but do you treasure the position I have given you? Because of My atonement for your sins, you are now in a position of right standing with My Father. You are seated with Me in the heaven far above all principality, wickedness, and rulers of darkness. I have given you the keys to My Kingdom - to bind and to loose and the key to the knowledge of holy things. Use those keys daily.

Never take for granted the authority you have in My name and the power of My blood to bind demonic spirits in My blood and to command them to leave. The truth is that the devil was defeated when I died on the cross. He just does not know this yet, so he keeps trying to get at you. Do not let him. Take every thought captive that he gives you and then give it to Me.
Cancel out every assignment he has against you each day and remain in My joy by praising Me and thanking Me for the victory I have given you.

The battle is Mine, but the victory is yours. Use your weapons of warfare daily to pull down strongholds and to bind demonic spirits. I do battle for you. However, you must use your weapons, especially the Word of God. Personalize and speak this Word today out loud:

No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against me in judgment I shall condemn. This is my heritage as a servant of the LORD, and my righteousness is from the LORD JESUS CHRIST (personalized from ISAIAH 54: 17)

EPHESIANS 2:4-7; COLOSSIANS 2:15; ISAIAH 54:17; MATTHEW 16:19

REACH

There is nothing you are experiencing now, whether it be trials or temptation, that I cannot touch with My love. There is nothing beyond My reach. I am able to span the universe with one hand. I am able to cup all the waters of the earth in My hands. Why do you doubt that I can reach out and touch you during this difficult time in your life? My hand is not so shortened that it cannot save - heal, deliver, and forgive.

Today I am reaching down to you. Yes, I even know the number of hairs on your head. Never doubt My ability to answer your prayers. Come to Me with every concern - the concerns about yourself, others, family members, job, circumstances and relationships.

I am able to perfect everything that is a concern to you. Look carefully at the word "concern." "Co" means together. "Cern" is also found in the word, "discernment." Together we will be able to discern with certainty the way your concerns can be perfected in Me. Release every concern to Me today.

PSALM 138:8; ISAIAH 59:1

LEARNING

Many believe that they will learn by their mistakes. A quick read of the journey of the children of Israel in the wilderness proves that this assumption is not true. Others believe that when they go through trials, their faith will grow. If this were true, every believer would be extremely strong in faith. Trials are allowed to test your faith, but you will learn nothing unless you turn to Me and My Word. Everyone makes mistakes, but the strength to not make mistakes will only come when you seek My wisdom and My Word.

My Word is given to you for instruction, correction, and reproof. It is the textbook of life, but so many do not spend time in My Word. Your faith will only grow as you hear My Word and obey My Word.

Many of My beloved keep going around the same mountain over and over again. I am merciful and when you fail the test of your faith in a trial, I will give you a make up test.
I trust that you will seek Me with all of your heart and learn from My Word daily so that you will pass every test of your faith without having a multitude of make up tests. You will never flunk out of My Kingdom School if you will learn of Me meekness and lowliness of heart.

2 TIMOTHY 3:16; MATTHEW 11:28-30; ROMANS 10:17

LAST DAYS

So many of My beloved are predicting when I will return. Only My Father has that information.
Few understand that they should live each day as if it were their last day on Earth. I want you to live with no regrets. In order to do that, you need to make sure that there is no anger, bitterness, resentment, jealousy, condemnation or unforgiveness in your heart towards anyone. If you knew it was your last day on Earth, how would you treat your spouse, other relatives, neighbors, fellow believers, and non believers?

Live each day as though it would be your last. Never allow the moment to swallow you up in any kind of strife with your friends and family. Treasure each person

you meet today as a gift that needs to be opened - opened to My love and opened to My good news. I lead you to be in the presence of others for only one reason - to make known My loving presence to that person.

Relish the moments I give you. Praise Me throughout the day. Soak in My love and the beauty of My nature. Each minute counts in eternity.

MATTHEW 24:36

SUSTAINING JOY

Joy is what will sustain you in the days ahead. Picture Me on the Galilee with Peter, James, John, and my other disciples. We laughed and looked forward to each day to see what we might catch. Remember they were not just fishermen. They were also fishers of men. There is no greater joy than to see someone come into My Kingdom. The angels rejoice and all heaven gives a loud shout of victory when one sinner repents.

Look today and each day for opportunities to share your faith with others. I want you also to be a fisher of men.

LUKE 10:20; LUKE 15:7

RELIEF

When the pressures of life seem to overwhelm you, I hear you say, "I just need some relief." The world offers many ways to find relief. Some people escape with a form of entertainment such as a good book or a movie. Others take a weekend getaway. All of these will provide only temporary relief from pressure. I offer lasting relief.

I know you are so familiar with My invitation to come to Me when you are heavy laden. My promise is to give you rest. However, you may have overlooked the conditions for receiving My rest. I asked you to take My yoke upon you and learn of Me. The two things My Holy Spirit can teach you are meekness and lowliness of heart. I want to form these two characteristics in you, but I need your cooperation.

You will learn meekness when you refuse to depend upon your own strength to overcome the weak areas in your life. Instead, depend upon My strength to help you overcome those weak areas.

You will learn how to be lowly of heart when you begin to humble yourself before Me. You can humble yourself before Me by casting every care upon Me in prayer and by believing that I take those cares and perfect all that is a concern to you.

You also can humble yourself before Me when you see yourself as I see you. Never condemn yourself and know with great assurance that I never condemn you. I see you perfected in My love and ruling and reigning with Me. Receive the truth that you are totally accepted by Me, and your soul will be relieved of condemnation and false guilt.

MATTHEW 11:28-30; 1 PETER 5:5-7

WARFARE

I have supplied all you need to win the war against the enemy of your soul. Remember always that I do battle for you, but you must cooperate with Me in order to put the enemy to flight. He would love to rob you of peace and joy. He would love to place you in his prison of unforgiveness by causing you to become bitter and resentful of others. He would love to cause you to doubt My Word. He would love to paralyze you with fear so that he can get you on his operating table where he will do further diabolical surgery on your soul.

As much as the enemy would love to torment your soul, I much more desire to pour out My love to you as a defense against the enemy. To have success over the enemy, you must love Me with all of your heart and love others as you love yourself. Your greatest weapon against the enemy is My love.

Abide in My love today and everyday. When you do this, the enemy will have no access to your soul. Ask My Holy Spirit to give you a fresh infilling of My love in your heart today. Do this faithfully every day and then no weapon the enemy forms against you will prosper.

JOHN 15:9; ISAIAH 54:17

TRUST

Trust in Me with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your path. These are words that I want you to live by each day. When you trust in Me with all of your heart, you entrust yourself, everything and everyone in your life into My loving care.

The moment you lift up your loved ones in prayer to Me, I intercede for them and wrap My arms securely around them. The moment you cast all of your cares upon Me, I intercede to My Father on your behalf. I wrap those cares in My arms and give them to Father. He is able to perfect all that is a concern to you.

When you know deep in your heart how much I love you, you will never have a problem trusting Me. Trust is:

Thankfully
Resting with
Understanding by My Spirit and
Surrendering all
To Me

PROVERBS 3:5-6

SECURITY

My imprint is on you. Yes, when I created you, I put My mark upon you. You are Mine. You are sealed by My Holy Spirit, and you will always be Mine.

So many on Earth seek security. They seek job security, social security, family security, possession security, political security, positional security, relational security, and many other forms of security. However, unless people put their trust completely in Me to provide their security in every area of their lives, they will always be disappointed.

I have provided such a secure place for those who believe in Me. Those who put their trust in Me never have to feel insecure. Through My atonement and resurrection, I have provided a place of safety and security for every believer. You are hid with Me in God, My Father. What a secure place to be! I have set you in a pavillion far away from the strife of tongues. What a secure place to be! I have provided for you all the riches you will ever need according to My own inheritance, My riches in glory. What a secure place to be!

Praise Me today for the security that is yours in Me. I will hold you with the strong right hand of My righteousness until you leave this Earth. As you put your trust in Me, the devil will never be able to break My security system to rob you of My joy, My peace, My love, and My righteousness. REJOICE!!!

COLOSSIANS 3:3; PSALM 31:20; EPHESIANS 4:19

RESISTANCE

Sometimes you resist the plans that I have for you because you fail to inquire of Me. When this happens, I resist you for your benefit. I resist the proud and give grace to the humble. One of the best ways you can humble yourself before Me is to inquire of Me. If you lack wisdom about anything, simply ask Me, and I stand ready to give you wisdom because I am all wisdom.

Remember that you are in a battle daily. You cannot see the forces that come against you, but they are there. They wait for an opportunity to cause you trouble. The way to prevent their success is to humble yourself before Me daily. Consecrate yourself before Me by offering the members of your body to Me as instruments of righteousness, love, peace, and joy. Read My Word and allow My Word to renew your thinking. You have My mind, however, to receive the wisdom I have, you must yield yourself to My Holy Spirit.

This morning put one hand up to Me in surrender and the other hand up to Me in praise. Commit your works to Me and ask Me for wisdom throughout the day. Your day will go much better than the days when you just try to fulfill your own plans.l

ROMANS 12:1-2; JAMES 1:5; ROMANS 6:13; JAMES 4:6

SHAKING

I am shaking the Earth and I am shaking the church, My body on Earth. I am shaking everything that can be shaken. These are the days I spoke about to My disciples when I shared what would signal My return to Earth. I called these days "the beginning of sorrows."

Pray for those who will experience great sorrow during these crucial days before My return. It is not My will that any perish without knowing Me. This is why your job as a laborer in these last days is so important. Do what you can while it is day because the night is soon coming when you can no longer work in My vineyard.

JOHN 9:4; MATTHEW 24:8

Thursday, August 19, 2010

DISCIPLINE

Discipline is a word that most of My beloved would like to forget. However, to be My true disciple, one must be disciplined. I taught My disciples how to be disciplined in their prayer times, in the times of teaching, and in their words and actions. Peter especially had trouble with self-control.

It took his denial of Me three times for Peter to discover the secret to being disciplined. He learned that He had to totally depend upon Me, not himself, to be disciplined in every area of his life. I know how you fight the daily disciplines of prayer and Bible reading on the days when you are busy. However, I can always redeem the time that you spend with Me in the morning.

I am the author and finisher of your faith. Allow Me to be the author of your today and every day. Let Me write on your heart the things that are really important for you to do and to say today. Ask Me to help you be on the same page as what is written in your book of life. Give Me your whole being, yield to My Spirit, and soon you will discover that being disciplined is a delight.

MARK 14:68-70; HEBREWS 12:2

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

NEW DAY

Indeed your days are numbered in My book of life. Call foth your days and ask Me to do My will moment by moment in your life. I give you another day for only one reason - to glorify Me.

Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify My Father in heaven. I have called you to walk as I walked while I was on Earth. My first priority was to do My Father's will. Even though you cannot see Me or My Father, My Holy Spirit can tell you My Father's will through what is written in My Word. You also can hear the quiet voice of My Spirit within you.

Demonstrate My power and My anointing today in what you say and what you do. when you do this, others will recognize My presence within you and around you. Joy will be transmitted to them because in My presence there is fulness of joy.

PSALM 90:10-12; MATTHEW 5:16; PSALM 16:11; LUKE 2:49

LONGING

So many of My beloved long for things to change in their lives. They find themselves in hard circumstances, broken relationships, and great testings of their faith. I understand their longings. I know the feelings of oppression and depression that can overwhelm the emotions of those who are looking for things to change in their lives.

Whenever you find yourself longing for things to change, look to Me. I am unchanging, and My plan for you is to change you from glory to glory to be more like Me. Never put your hope in future change. Place your hope in Me and know that only I can fulfill the longings in your soul. When you look to Me, the anxiety, frustractions, and even anger that you experience in trying times will melt away.

PSALM 31:24, 33:11, 38:15, PSALM 42:11, 147:11

DRINK

My everlasting arms are always supporting you. I know you cannot feel them, but it is My delight to hold you up every day. There are days when you feel like I have abandoned you. However, I promised never to leave you or forsake you. I promised to be with you always until the end of this age.

I am your rear guard and I also go before you to do battle on your behalf. I am your "Good Shepherd," Who will lead you to the still waters and green pastures. I can make you lay down in green pastures, but I cannot make you drink from the water. It is up to you to receive a fresh drink from My "River of Life" daily. My invitation to you is the same I gave over 2000 years ago. I cried out, "If anyone thirsts. let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" (1 John 7:37-38). Come and drink in My Holy Spirit.

MATTHEW 28:20; PSALM 23; JOHN 7:37-38

Sunday, August 15, 2010

REFRESH

It is so great to have a cold drink of water on a hot Summer day. I also can refresh you whenever you come to Me for a fresh anointing of My Holy Spirit. Drink from My River of Life today and receive the refreshing I have for you.

Stay filled with My Spirit all the day long. I have provided a simple way for you to stay filled with the Spirit throughout the day. My friend Paul encouraged believers to speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make melody in your heart to Me . Remain in an attitude of thanksgiving all the day long. Above all submit to one another in love.

Today, if you are not able to be with one of My beloved in person, call them on the phone and sing some songs together. You will be uplifted. If you are having difficulty in your relationship with your mate and your mate is a believer, try singing a few songs together to Me. The walls that may have separated you in your relationship will come down. Refresh yourself today and refresh someonelse with My Spirit.

EPHESIANS 5:18-21

Saturday, August 14, 2010

HEARTS

I test and try men's hearts. I see the motivations of the hearts. My goal in trying and testing hearts is to cleanse hearts that will turn to Me during tests and trials. I cannot minister to the heart that resists Me through pride, bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness. I have the power to harden hearts and to soften hearts. My desire is that you will always be tenderhearted towards one another.

For a lasting change to come into your heart, you must submit your heart to me, confess those things that are blocking My touch on your heart. Ask My Holy Spirit today to reveal any hardness in your heart. Pride is the main stronghold that causes a hard heart. Humble yourself before Me by casting every care upon Me. See yourself as I see you - beloved and accepted by Me. Release your heart to Me and you will see a change of heart.

I am waiting for you to give Me your heart.

PROVERBS 17:3

Friday, August 13, 2010

TWO BY TWO

No one should ever labor in My vineyard alone. As you look at My life when I walked on Earth, My disciples were in constant fellowship with Me. I sent them out two by two for a reason. I told them that "if two of them agreed on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19). Many of My beloved in these last days have forgotten the power of agreement in both prayer and in witnessing.

As my disciples traveled from town to town with the good news of My kingdom, they labored together as a team. One would speak and the other would pray silently while the message was being delivered. My Holy Spirit was also with them to empower them. The two along with My Spirit provided a three-fold cord that could not be broken.

Today pray with someone in agreement and you will see the fruit of those prayers. Give prayer support to those who are laboring in My vineyard. Your prayers in agreement with those who are delivering My message daily to others will cause their fruitfulness to increase. Remember where two or three are gathered together in My name, I will always be in the midst of them.

MATTHEW 18:19-20; ECCLESIASTES 4:12

WARFARE

Never be ignorant of the devil's devices. In physical warfare frontal attacks are designed to weaken the enemy. Satan has a frontal attack to weaken you. His demonic forces observe your weaknesses and then they hit at those weaknesses in your flesh. Seducing spirits are assigned to you to tempt you to give into your own lusts. The tempter wants to destroy your testimony.

Be on guard against him. This is why I gave two special mandates to My followers. I told them to watch and pray and I remind you of those words today. Remember how My disciples failed to stand watch or even pray when I agonized in prayer to My Father in the Garden. They fell asleep on the job.

Do not become listless and have a spirit of lethargy in this last day. You will not be able to withstand Satan's subtle seductions if you waste time and become lazy in your daily discipline of prayer and Bible reading. Spend time today with Me, pray in the Spirit constantly, memorize My Word, use My name, give every disobedient thought to Me, and declare what My blood has purchased for you. Get your war clothes on today. Yes, I do battle for you, but you must pick up the weapons I have provided for you and use them against the enemy. You care called to torment the devil. Never allow him to torment you.

MATTHEW 26:38-46; MARK 13:33-37

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

HONESTY

I long for you to be honest with Me. Never hide the struggles you may be having with strongholds in your life. My servant Paul instructed you to pull down those strongholds by taking your thoughts captive and giving them to Me. Release of every worry or lustful thought to Me is the secret to having a soul that is at peace and at rest. Recognize that nothing goes past My sight. I already know your struggles with strongholds and I can feel the pain, anxieties and torment you experience when you do not come to Me with every problem.

I need for you to be honest and open with Me. Bring every care to Me and confess every sin to Me. When you do this, what you are experiencing in the moment is brought into My healing light. Never fear that I will condemn you when you struggle with strongholds or worries. Remember, I am your husband and as a husband I am your care taker. My beloved who do not have a mate to share their problems with in open communication need desperatley to keep the lines of communication with Me always open.

MATTHEW 11:28-29; 2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-6

PORTRAIT

You used to sing, "Take time to be holy, speak oft with your God, abide in Him only and feed on His Word." That is a verse of a familiar hymn, and it conveys My heart for you. My heart is that you will take time throughout the day to praise and thank Me and to cast all of your cares upon Me. It is such a joy for Me to have time with you every day. Never miss that time with Me. I have so much that I want to tell you.

I am framing your life. Yes, your life is a portrait of Me. My light shines through your face and that portrayal of Me causes many to be drawn to My light. I am the light of the world and I have ordained you to be a light shining in the midst of darkness. I caused the light to shine out of darkness into your heart to give you the very light of My glory in My face.

Today let My light so shine from you that others may see your good works and glorify My Father in Heaven. Everything in your life has been designed to enhance My glory within you and My glory that eminates from you. Just as a frame enhances the painted picture and draws out the beauty, I have framed your life and My beauty within you will continue to be displayed for others to see.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:6; JOHN 8:12; MATTHEW 5:16

FISHING

Joy is what will sustain you in the days ahead. Picture Me on the Galilee with Peter, James, and John. We laughed and looked forward to each day to see what we would catch. Remember they were not just fishermen. They were fishers of men. There is no greater joy than to see someone come into My Kingdom. The angels rejoice and all heaven gives a loud shout of victory when a person comes to know Me and joins My Father's family.

Look today and each day for opportunities to share your faith with others. Just remember that in order to have a great catch, you need to sit quietly in My presence before you throw out the line for the catch. My disciples knew the secret of being fishers of men. They sat quietly in the boat with me and then they threw out the line. You probably have heard this expression, "Fellowship happens when fellows are in the same boat together." Fellowship with Me today. Sit quietly in My presence, and I will help you have a great catch. Let's go fishing today.

LUKE 15:7; MATTHEW 4:19

Sunday, August 8, 2010

WRESTLING

Wrestling with Me sometimes has to come before My rest can overwhelm you. The wrestling occurs when you are still fighting what I have ordered for your life. You may not like the journey you are in now, but in reality, it is only your flesh that does not like it. Like the children of Israel, you resist change and you want things as they always were. The children of Israel even were willing to go back into slavery in order to have the leaks and garlic that they loved in Egypt. They complained and murmured.
The way out of wrestling with Me is to surrender your flesh daily to Me. Submit your body as a living sacrifice and the members of your body as instruments of My righteousness, peace, joy, and love. Lift your soul up to Me daily and allow Me to deal with your flesh. I can only deal with your flesh if You invite Me to do so.
ROMANS 6:11-13

Saturday, August 7, 2010

TRIED AND TRUE

"Tried and True" is an expression people use to describe someone who is faithful. This is a worldly phrase, but it has application to My Kingdom. My saints that are faithful to Me are "Tried and True." I have tested them and the truth within them has sustained them through every trial. My Word is truth.

When someone is "Tried and True." They are able to withstand Satan and stand faithful to the end. Endurence, longsuffering, preserverence and, of course, faithfulness are embroidered on their character. The adversities of this life will not affect those who stand faithful to Me. As you read the stories of the saints in the Bible, you will see that they experienced continual trials. I also said, "In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer because I have overcome the world."

When you go through trials, recognize that every trial will perfect your character and cause you to shine with My glory. Others will notice your faithfulness, and I will be glorified. Remember today this good word from My word, "Faithful is He Who calls Who also will do it" (Thessalonians 5:24). I am the faithful One Who works faithfully to perfect faithfulness in you.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:24; JOHN 16:33

HELP

I know there are days that you call "Help Me Jesus Days." Those are the days when so much is going on in your life that you just do not know which way to turn or where to start. On those days I look forward to helping you. So many of My saints do not cry out for help when they are in need. They try to do everything in their own strength, and by the end of the day they are exhausted.

I have provided all that you need to help you have fruitful days. My Holy Spirit is the "Helper." He is the One Who will lead and guide you throughout the day. Never hesitate to cry out for help. I also am "Captain of the Heavenly Hosts." The moment you cry out for help, I assign angels to come to your aid. The more you depend upon Me to help you, the more you will get done in a day's time.

Commit your works to Me, and My Spirit will order your thoughts and prioritize your day. There is much kingdom work I have for you to do, and as you depend upon Me, you will accomplish every work I designed for you.

DRESS REHERSAL

You are now in the dress rehersal stage of your life. Life is a rehersal for the big show - eternity with Me. While you are on Earth there are endless practice performances. However, you are not the preformer. I am the One who performs My works through you. I am the main character in the stage of life and the stage of the age to come.

You have an audience that watches carefully what you do on stage, just as they watched Me while I was on Earth for a little over three years. I came to Earth to reveal Who My Father is and now you are on stage to reveal the love of My Father and His will to many. There is no way you can perfectly copy My performance while I was on Earth, but I do want you to follow My example. It is My desire that you walk and talk like Me. I call you to walk even as I walked. This is only possible as you yield your unruly flesh to Me.

There is another way that you can cooperate with My Holy Spirit as He leads and guides you on the stage of life. Just as an actor or an actress has to learn their lines, you need to memorize My Word. My Word through you can give eternal life to others. Learn your lines today and spend time in My Word.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13; JOHN 6:68

SEASONS

To everything there is a season. There are seasons of life and seasons of weather and of time. I desire for you to praise me in all seasons. I know how you dislike the summer season because of the heat, but you can praise me for many things in this season. Every night there is a symphony of praise that you can join in as the crickets, frogs, June bugs, and katydids make their joyful sounds. I am a man of all seasons. You can find me in every season and you can also praise Me as you experience every season. I made the different seasons for your benefit.

I said, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority." However, you can know the season that I will return to Earth. My Holy Spirit is able to reveal this to you.

It is vital that you know right now that this is harvest season. It is your season to give a word in season to those who do not yet know Me. Time is winding down. Work while it is still day because the time is coming when you can do no work. In the mean time, enjoy every season and praise Me for it!!

GREATNESS

Greatness in My Kingdom is not determined by wealth or power. Greatness in My Kingdom is determined by My Spirit. My Spirit is able to look into the hearts of men to see their motivations, their desires, and their imaginations. My Father sent the flood because He knew that the hearts of men were desperately wicked and full of vain imaginations.

I was sent to cleanse the hearts of men and I love to do this. I am able to uproot in the hearts of men all that is not pleasing to My Father. After I uproot bitterness, unforgiveness, idolatry and many other selfish roots, I cleanse and heal the heart.

Turn your heart over to Me daily and you will have a great heart filled with My glory. The greatest person in My Kingdom is the one who allows My Spirit to daily anoint and fill his or her heart with My love. No matter what your circumstances are, you are called to love always. My Spirit can give you the power to do this. Surrender your heart to Me today and you will have a great day.

WELFARE

People are concerned about their welfare. Those who are having difficulty financially sometimes have to depend upon the welfare program in their various countries to help them. However, I have a welfare program that is eternal and unfailing. There are only four things that are necessary to receive the benefits of My welfare program. Those four things have to do with priority, position, promise, and prayer.

PRIORITY - To receive the benefits of My welfare program your most important priority is to seek first My Kingdom and My righteousness. I promised to meet all of your basic needs for food and clothing if you will seek Me first daily in prayer.

POSITION - You must recognize your position with Me. I purchased with My shed blood your position in heaven where you have all authority over all the powers of the devil in My Name. Use that authority to bind demonic forces that come against you and loose My ministering angels to help you. Remember Satan will try to block you from receiving the benefits of My Kingdom.

PROMISE - I never want you to beg anyone for anything. Instead, I have commisioned you to ask My Father to give you your daily bread. Remember My promise to the righteous - "I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor their seed begging for bread." Believe this promise and ask in faith for your needs to be met.

PRAYER - When you stand praying, forgive. Make sure there is no resentment, bitterness, or unforgiveness towards anyone. Father cannot give you your daily bread if you are in a state of unforgiveness. Remember how I taught the disciples to pray, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."

GOOD NEWS

The day will come when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that I am Lord. This is harvest time. Tell people that they have two choices - to bow to Me now or to bow later.

Encourage those who do not believe in Me now to come to Me before it is too late. You are living in a crucial period of time in history. Much is happening to draw things toward My soon coming. Cherish every moment and use every moment to share My good news with others. Pray much in the Spirit for the lost and I will open doors for you to share My good news with many.
