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.

EVERLASTING FATHER

Isaiah the prophet knew exactly who I am.  He knew that as the Father's son, I am also One with My Father.  I understand that many Jewish and Muslim people think that My believers worship three Gods (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).  I shared many times in My talks with My disciples that I and the Father are One.

I am God in the flesh.  I am not just another prophet for Muslims to add to their list.  I am not just a good teacher.  I am the "GREAT I AM," Who put on an earth suit and came to live among those Who I created. I am the everlasting Father.

In the beginning, I was with God and I was God. I am a flesh being Who came to show those on Earth who the Father is. When I left Earth, I received a glorified body. When you are resurrected from the dead, you will also receive your glorified body just as I did. Look forward to that day.

ISAIAH 9:6; JOHN 7:39, 20:13

COUNSELOR

My name is Counselor.  Solomon wrote that in a multitude of counselors there is safety.  Godly counsel sometimes is difficult to find in the age that you live.

It is important that you choose a counselor who knows My Word and Who is anointed by My Spirit.
The anointing that was upon Me when I walked on Earth included the Spirit of Counsel and Might.

People who are weak in certain areas of their lives can find strength to overcome those weaknesses when they receive Godly counsel. The anointing that was upon Me is available to all of My beloved who desire to walk in that anointing.  Today ask Me for a fresh anointing, and you may have the opportunity to be a Godly counselor to someone in need.

PROVERBS 11:14; ISAIAH 11:1-2

WONDERFUL

One of My names is "Wonderful."  Why did Isaiah the prophet call Me by the name "Wonderful?"  Whenever you lack for words to praise someone, you often say, "You are so wonderful."  This was in the heart of Isaiah when he prophesied that My name would be "Wonderful."

The Psalmist said that I made My wonderful works to be remembered.  My name is "Wonderful" because I allowed My Father to do wonderful works through Me when I walked on Earth.  Read the Gospels this coming year and make a list of all the wonderful works I did.

I only said what I heard My Father say.  I only did what I saw My Father do.  This is how I want you to live in this coming year.  Listen carefully to My Holy Spirit before you say anything and then allow My Holy Spirit to do My wondrous works through you as you yield to My Spirit within you.

ISAIAH 9:6; PSALM 111:4

OWE

This is truly the season of giving. It is also the season for forgiving.   Forgiving occurs when we lay down our expectations of  others.

Expectations are usually based on what we want another person to do or say, and when that person fails to meet our expectations, we are disappointed and sometimes even discouraged.

When I offered Myself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world, I forgave past, present, and future sins and expected nothing in return.  To forgive means giving love to another without expecting anything in return.  The new commandment I gave to My disciples was for them to love one another as I had loved them.  Expect nothing of others and everything of Me.

JOHN 13:34

MIGHTY GOD

Seven hundred years before I was born on Earth, Isaiah looked through the portals of time and prophesied My birth.  He gave me several names, and all of those names described who I am; Who I was; what I would do; and where I would go.

The name that told all of mankind Who I am is "Mighty God." I am the great "I AM" Who came to live among you as a flesh and blood man.  This plan of redemption was written before the Earth was formed.

I had to put on an Earth suit and become just like you because I wanted to reveal who My Father is, and also I wanted to identify with you.  I was touched with every feeling you have ever experienced, except I was sinless.  When I take your burdens to My Father as I pray for you, He always asks Me how you are feeling.  I then can tell Him about every ache and pain and heartbreak you may have on any given day.

ISAIAH 9:6; HEBREWS 4:15

BELLS

Bells ring out on church towers to announce My birth on Christmas morning.  Bell choirs play in harmony during church services,

Bells are so important to My heavenly Father that they were placed on the hems of the priestly garments.  Those bells tinkled as the priests performed their duties in the Temple. 

The sound of the bells on the staffs of the shepherds were silenced on that still, quiet night when all glory came down from heaven and angels announced My birth, The shepherds stood as still as statues as they watched that bright light hide the stars that were shining that night,  When you hear the bells ring out this Christmas, remember that special night and stand in awe of My presence with you

EXODUS 39:26; LUKE 2

BELLS

The sound of bells usher in the Christmas season, Church bells ring out on Christmas morning, and in the north sleigh bells can be heard on the snowy hillsides, There are bell choirs that ring out the notes to Christmas hymns in churches during this season.

Shepherds have bells on their staffs to direct their sheep. When you hear bells this Christmas, think about that still, quiet night when the shepherd's bells were silenced by the loud chorus of angels who announced My birth,

Bells also ring out loudly as the saints join with one voice in heaven to praise Me.  Heavenly bells will ring out to announce your entrance into heaven. Look forward to that day.

 ZECHARIAH 14:20;

SHINE

Most Christmas trees during this season are covered with shining ornaments and lights with a shining star at the very top of the tree. The stars were brightly shining on the night the angels announced My birth,

When I appeared at the mount of transfiguration, My face shined as the sun. After I ascended into heaven, I received the glory that I left to come and dwell among mankind.  Ever since My ascension, My manifest presence is cloaked in shining light.

I have called you and all My beloved to manifest My presence on Earth.  Your faces should shine so brightly that others will ask you why your faces shine. Take time in My presence every morning and allow Me to dress you with My garments of praise and clothe you with My shining light.

MATTHEW 5:16,13:43; PHILIPPIANS 2:15

PRESENT

The greatest present that you can give Me this Christmas is yourself.  I love to hear your praise, thanksgiving and worship, but the highest form of worship is doing My will.

When you give yourself to Me daily, then I can fulfill My will through you.  The two commandments I can fulfill through you are to love one another as I have loved you and to love Me with all of your heart.

These two commandments are impossible for you to fulfill if you do not yield to My Spirit within you.  I am looking forward to receiving the gift of yourself to Me during this season and every season of your life.

JOHN 15:12, 14:21

LIGHT

It is appropriate that bright lights are used to decorate homes during this season when My birth is celebrated.  I am the light of the world.  Doctors who observe the conception process in a test tube cannot identify the flash of light that occurs when sperm meets egg. I am that light.

I am present at every birth,  I am the light Who lights every person born into the world, This is why it is also appropriate to light candles on birthday cakes
,
This Christmas season when you switch on your tree lights and house lights, remember how My birth brought eternal light into the world,  Pray for those who have chosen to walk in darkness to have the eyes of their understanding opened to behold Me, the only One Who can light their path that leads to salvation,

JOHN 1:9

SILENCE

I have heard two expressions about silence.  Some people say on a still.,quiet night that the silence is deadening.  Others who want to get away from noise say that silence is golden,

It was a silent night when suddenly the silence in the shepherd's fields was interrupted by a great host of angels who came to announce My birth.  My glory filled the heavens that night,

My glory will fill you during this season if you will take time to be silent during your times with Me,  I always have things that I want to tell you, but you must remain silent long enough to hear My still, quiet voice.  When you take that time, silence will always be golden,

LUKE 2:8-20

CELEBRATION

There are so many celebrations in a lifetime. Birthdays, graduations, weddings, are just a few of the celebrations that people enjoy,  I did my first miracle when My family went to Cana to celebrate a marriage, 

This is the season when people are celebrating My birth,  I actually was born in early spring during the time when the shepherds were in the fields to assist in the birth of baby lambs. It was fitting that I would be born then since I am the " Lamb of God" Who takes away the sins of the world,

I have given you the gift of life. I want you to unwrap this gift daily so that My glory will be displayed in your life, Glory is My manifest presence shining through earthen vessels like you, Let My light shine brightly through you during this season of celebration.

LUKE 2;8; JOHN 2:11

CONSOLE

It is sometimes difficult to know how to console people when they suffer loss,  The disciples could not understand why I did not rush to Lazarus' bedside when he was sick,  I knew that God had an appointed time for Me to see Lazarus.

God also has an appointed time for you to console people.  It is important that you seek Me for the right timing to visit someone who needs consolation.  Only I know how receptive a person will be to your visit,

Be led by My Spirit instead of your emotions when you receive news that someone you know has suffered loss.  Also pray for Me to speak the words of comfort through you to the one who needs comfort.  Remember that My Holy Spirit is called "The Comforter,"

JOHN 11:1-5,14:16

IDEAS

I am all wisdom and I am able to give you creative ideas.  Solomon wrote this about Me: "I wisdom dwell with prudence and find out knowledge of witty inventions."  I am the creator of all things, and I am able to infuse your mind with My creativity.

Most of the inventions in your age were inspired by Me.  You now live in the age of knowledge when new inventions are being created at such a rate that many inventions that were patented even six months ago are obsolete now.

There is always something new to learn.  However, I want you to learn two things from Me that no other teacher can teach you.  I want you to learn meekness and lowliness of heart.  In order to learn this, you must spend time in My presence.  When you learn meekness and lowliness of heart, you will experience My abundant grace in your life.

PROVERBS 8:12; MATTHEW 11:28-29

LOGIC

My coming to earth as a babe defies all logic.  However, it was the wisdom of My Father that planned the way I was to become flesh.  In order for you to identify with Me, I had to be born as a babe and develop into a man.

During My lifetime on Earth, I was touched by every weakness that you experience, but I did not have the weakness of worldly lusts. I was without sin.  On that fateful day when I died on the tree, I became sin for you, even though I never experienced sin.

My death also seems to defy logic, but sin had to be judged. This is why I bore in My body of flesh every sin that mankind ever committed.  My fleshly birth on Earth paved the way for Me to become the perfect sacrifice for sin.

HEBREWS 4:15; ISAIAH 53:5

WILLING

When My servant Moses was preparing the tabernacle, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, brought the Lord's offering to this work of the tabernacle. It is My Father Who stirs hearts to give.

During this season of giving, My prayer for you is that you will receive the same giving heart that My Father has.  He so loved the world that He gave Me, His only begotten Son, to be the perfect sin sacrifice for the whole world.

I gave myself willingly to die for your sins and not only for your sins, but also for the sins of the whole world. Sadly even at this giving season, few remember what I gave on the day I was crucified or on the day that I was raised from the dead.  May your heart be stirred during this season to willingly give of yourself to lovingly serve Me and others.

EXODUS 35:21; JOHN 3:16
