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.

ADMIT, REPENT, FORGET

Tomorrow is Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).  This is the day that Jewish people confess the sins of the previous year and they pray that their names will be written in the Book of the Righteous.

The list of sins that they read out loud seems to cover everything, and that is just the problem. They believe that their confession will cover their sins. When I died on the tree, I  shed My blood as an atonement for the sins of the whole world.  I made it  possible for everyone who believes in Me to have their sins, transgressions, and iniquities removed.

As far as the east is from the west so far have I removed your transgressions from you. I still want you to confess (admit) your sins to Me.  I still want you to turn away from your sin (repent). When you do this, I drop your sins in the sea of My Forgetfulness.  Do not go fishing for them again.

PSALM 103:12; 1 JOHN 1:9-5-10

STREAMS

You now have the ability to live stream programs into the whole world.  This is no accident.  This is My plan to reach the world with My good news.  Pray for My anointing to be upon these live streaming programs that present Me as the One True God

Pray that anointing will go to every one who is watching.  Know that I will move heaven and earth to get My gospel spread.  I will not return until the My gospel is preached to every nation.  I watch over nations.

I am watching over your nation today, September 26, 2020, as believers gather in Washington to repent.  True repentance will usher in revival.  Keep asking.  Keep seeking Me.  Keep knocking until you see revival in your land.  Pray for the stream of My Holy Spirit to be poured upon the Earth.

MATTHEW 6:33, 24:14; JOEL 2:28-29

TREASURE/TROPHY

Everyone born is a treasure to Me.  However, some have been bound by My enemy, and they do not realize yet how much I love them.  Pray for these treasures, and I want you to see everyone as the treasure they are to Me.

You have been blessed twice because I saw you as My special treasure when you were physically born.  When you were born again, you became not only My treasure, but also My trophy that I took out of the hands of My enemy.

When I died on the tree and ascended to heaven,  I took captivity captive.  This means that all who have been bound by My enemy were set free.  Many have not entered into this freedom because of unbelief.  Pray that those who are bound will receive Me as their Lord and Savior so at last they can walk in the freedom I purchased for them.

EPHESIANS 4:8

DWELL

I want you to think about where you dwell and where I dwell.  I came to dwell in you when you accepted My invitation to believe in Me and to receive Me as your Lord and Savior.

I know it is an amazing fact that I would trust you to be the temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is the same Spirit that raised Me from the dead.  I prayed for all those who believe in Me to be one even as I and the Father are one, and that you would be one in us.

Right now, at this present moment, you are hid with Me in My Father. I want you to remember that you are dwelling in the safest and most secure place ever created.  When you receive this truth, all fear, worry and anxiety will leave you instantly even during these times of turmoil in your country.

JOHN 17: 21; ROMANS 8:11; COLOSSIANS 3:3

BODY

Most everyone wants to be somebody and very few want to be a nobody.  I have given you a living body as a gift, and I want you to take care of that gift.  Those who believe in Me have the joy of housing My Holy Spirit in their earthen vessels.

Remember how I instructed Gideon to put lamps in earthen pitchers and then I told him to break those vessels and blow their trumpets so that the enemy would think that they were facing a mighty army.  The strategy worked and Gideon and his troop of 300 men won.

Some of you feel like broken earthen vessels, but I am planning on use broken vessels in this last great harvest of souls..  I have commanded the light to shine out of darkness into your heart to give you the light of  the knowledge of My Father's glory in My face so that the excellency of the power that I give you to demonstrate might be of Me and not of you.

JUDGES 7:16; 2 CORINTHIANS 4:6-7

GRACE/SUPPLICATION

The Jewish community is entering the Days of Awe (ten days of self-examination and repentance). I stand ready to heal your land when My body on Earth will turn from their own ways to Me.  

Repentance is turning away from those things that hinder our fellowship together. The 10 Days of Awe end with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).  

I have atoned for all of your sins, past, present and future.  However, I want you daily to be sensitive to My Holy Spirit and always ready to confess anything that is separating you from fellowship with Me. As you seek Me with all of your heart, I will pour upon you the Spirit of grace and supplication and you will be able to pray the prayers that I want you to pray for your nation, church, family and the world.

RESTORE

I am restoring the church (My true body on Earth) When a piece of furniture is restored, many steps have to be employed.  The old paint or varnish has to be removed through sanding.  The parts of the furniture that were not secure, need to be secured.  

Before new paint or varnish can be put on the furniture, it needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Finally the furniture is ready to be refinished, and it may take several layers of varnish of paint to make it shine.

I am taking these same steps as I restore My Body on Earth.  I am sanding, securing, cleaning, and shining the church.  As this world grows darker, the path of the just is as a shining light. The restoration process may be painful, but your lights will so shine before men that they will see your good works and glorify My Father in heaven.

MATTHEW 5:16; PROVERBS 4:18

REVEAL

The day will come when everything that has been hidden will be revealed.  People have a tendency to feel that they can hide their sins from Me.  I see everything and I know everyone's hearts.  Yes, even the sins of the hearts of mankind will one day be revealed.

Until that day when all is revealed, I want you to pray that I will bring to light even those things that are done in darkness during your lifetime.  When this happens, people will be able to finally understand that they they cannot get away with sin and that sin will cause consequences.

Pray for the uncovering of the lies that are being spoken in the media, political arenas, and even churches. I am shaking everything that can be shaken in order to establish once again righteousness in your land.

1 CORINTHIANS 4:5

COMPLAINT/CONTENT

You have two choices that will affect your daily attitude as you face this continued virus crisis.  You can choose to complain or choose to be content.

When you read the life of My servant Paul, you will discover his secret to never giving up.  Yes, he was distraught, distressed, discouraged many times, but he never gave up.  He kept pressing on to reach the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. That call was to preach the gospel.

Paul learned to be content no matter what condition he faced.  He wrote in one of his letters to do everything without murmuring or complaining.  Paul knew the secret to enjoying My grace every day of his life.  That secret was to always have an attitude of gratitude.

PHILIPPIANS 2:14 3:14, 4:12

AROUND

 It is important that you have spiritual eyes to see what is going on in that realm where I am moving things into place as the prayers of My body on Earth are effective and avail much.

I will help you target your prayers so that you will be able to use the Keys to the Kingdom that I have given you to bind on Earth the demonic forces that are active now in your nation, and loose My Holy Spirit of truth to fight deception.

Do not look at the circumstances because circumstances are only a manifestation of what is going on in the spirit realm.  Never forget that there are more on your side than on the enemy's side.  I will open your eyes just like I opened the eyes of Elisha's servant when He saw My chariots surrounding the enemy's armies.

2 KINGS 6:15-17

VACATE

 I gave you this word because I want you to occupy until I return.  The word, "vacate," means to give up occupancy.  You live in My kingdom on Earth. I want you to stay in residence in that kingdom and actively welcome others to come into the residence of My kingdom.

As the troubles increase in the days before My return, many people just want to go on a vacation and forget about all the troubles.  You cannot take a vacation from My presence with you.  I will never leave you or forsake you.

I want you to occupy your position in My kingdom which is to abide in Me, abide in My Word, and abide in My love.  If you will do these three things, I will fill you with such joy that others will notice. My residence within your soul will display My peace, joy, and love to others.

MATTHEW 28:20; JOHN  15:4, 7, 10, 11

ORIGINAL

The question people ask when they are about to buy a painting or some other work of art is:"Is this an original work?"  The value of something increases if you have an original piece of art.

Everything on Earth is original.  The origin of every thing that has ever been created both in heaven and in Earth both visible and invisible has its origin in Me. For by Me and for Me was everything created that has been created.

Thrones, dominions, and principalities, and powers were created by Me.  Sadly many on Earth do not recognize why they were created.  They were created for My pleasure, but many seek to pleasure themselves in ways that do not please Me.  Pray for those who do not yet know Me. They are of great value to Me.

COLOSSIANS 1:16; 2 TIMOTHY 3:2-4

URGENT

One of the tactics of My enemy is to distract My body on Earth from the urgency of prayer.  My Father chose the avenue of prayer as the vehicle that enables you to travel by faith into Our throne room where you will always obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

You can boldly enter My throne room of grace any time. I purchased that right for you when I laid down My blood was shed as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. 

The world has great needs right now, and you have been chosen to be My vessel to pray for My Father's will to be done on Earth even as it is in heaven. Make prayer your top priority now.

HEBREWS 4:16

WINGS

 I remember the time that you thought you could fly.  You lacked two important things that would enable you to fly.  Those two things are wings.  There are many who are experiencing such hardship because of the conditions of this virus crisis and the violence in your land that they wish they could just fly away.

The psalmist David wrote: " Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.  Lo,  then I would wander far off, and remain in the wilderness.  I would make haste for my escape from the windy storm and tempest. Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues for I have seen violence and strife in the city.  Day and night they go about it upon the walls: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.  Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets."

These verses from Psalm 55:6-11 describe what is happening in your cities.  Use your spiritual weapons to come against the violence and lawlessness in your land.  Be not afraid.  You are under the shelter of My wings.

PSALM 55:6-11, 91:4

REDUCED

You love to have prices for gas and other necessary items reduced.  You would love to have the strength of this virus outbreak to be reduced.  There is something, however, that will never be reduced in your life.

My power cannot be reduced.  Yes, people can refuse to operate in the fullness of My power or even ignore the fact that I have power over all things, but I am all power and always will be all power.

So many in your nation fear what may happen next as you draw near to the upcoming election. You must remember these truths: "I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."  I also have given you all authority in My name to come against the power of My enemy.

2 TIMOTHY 1:7; LUKE 9:1

SEPERATION

 So many have experienced the separation from their loved ones during this virus crisis.  Many elderly are in nursing homes and assisted living places where even their family members are unable to visit them.  Many who have the virus are in the hospitals alone without family around them.

I have a heart of mercy, and My heart breaks when I see the suffering and deaths that have been caused by this virus.  Some people think I sent the virus, but if that were true, why did I teach My disciples to pray, "Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven."

There is no sickness or death in heaven.  Pray for those who are suffering.  When I walked on Earth, I was flesh, but also divine.  It was impossible for Me to reach all the suffering.  However, you are My body on Earth, and I have empowered you to do the same works I did on Earth and even greater works.

MATTHEW 6:10;;JOHN 14:12

RESOUND

The word, "resound," means to reverberate or to fill the atmosphere with a loud, echoing sound.  I gave you this word today because I want you to pray that My truth will resound in your city, state, and nation.

So many lies, false facts, and negative words are being repeated in the media.  To combat this, I want those in the My body on Earth to condemn all those words of judgment that have been spoken over your nation and your president.

Your right as a saint of the Lord is to condemn every word of judgment and to declare that no weapon that has been formed against My church and your nation will prosper.  Ask for My Spirit of truth to broadcast the truth to people.  I am the truth, and I can dispel all lies, but you need to give My truths voice on Earth. My angels hearken to the voice of My Word.

ISAIAH 54:17; PSALM 103:20

STAND

 After the first born of the Egyptians were killed, Pharaoh finally let the children of Israel go.  They went by the way of the wilderness.  The children of Israel were greatly afraid when they saw the Egyptians in the chariots chasing after them.

Moses told them to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord which He would show them that very day. He told them that the Egyptians that they saw then, they would see no more.

I want you to be as confident as Moses was in My power to deliver you from your enemies.  Right now you are experiencing an out break of lawlessness in your nation, but I say to you the same words Moses said to the children of Israel.  Do not be afraid, but stand and see how I can save you from your enemies.

EXODUS 14:13

GATHERING

You are about to enter the season of the gathering of the Fall harvest.  I said to My disciples that the harvest was truly plenteous, but the laborers were few. I asked them to pray that more laborers be sent to gather in the harvest.

Large gatherings of people have been limited since this virus crisis has enveloped the world.  Many churches are still closed, but this has not stopped My Spirit from moving upon My people.  In fact, many are spending more time in prayer because they have more time to spend in prayer.

I have allowed this pandemic to fine tune My body on Earth to hear My voice and to recognize the power of prayer.  There will be a great harvest of souls before I return. Use your time wisely now to prepare your heart to be ready to labor in this harvest.  Spend much intimate time with Me.

MATTHEW 9:37

SECRETS

There is nothing hidden that will not be manifested; neither is any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. These were My words many years ago and they still are true.

I humbled Myself and became a man, but I was also God in the flesh.  Because I became flesh and blood, My Father has given Me power over all flesh.  He has given Me the ability to judge the secrets of men's hearts. 

It is important that you pray now for Me to reveal and expose the hearts of those who are demonically inspired to try to cause lawlessness and the destruction of righteousness in your nation. My light will expose the darkness as you are faithful to pray.

MARK 4;22; LUKE 8:17

SINCERE

 I have sincere love for you. A sincere person is faithful, trustworthy, and truthful..  I am faithful to help you and to deliver you from affliction.  My Word says that many are the afflictions of the righteous, but I deliver the righteous out of them all.

I am trustworthy.  When you trust Me with all of your heart and refuse to lean on your own understanding, and you also acknowledge Me in all your ways, I have promised to direct your path. During these uncertain times caused by this virus crisis, My enemy wants you to doubt that I have a plan, purpose, and path for you.  

The truth is that I not only have a plan, purpose, and path for you, but I also have sent My Holy Spirit to  empower you to fulfill My plan and purpose for you.  Believe this with all of your heart and delight today in My sincere love for you. When you believe this, I will reveal My path to you. 

PSALM 34:19; PROVERBS 3:5-6; PSALM 37:23
