We have come through a time in July (the seventh month) of much perfecting in our mind, will, and emotions as The LORD has been perfecting that which concerns us, and bringing into a changed mind, as we let His Mind be in us.
As we have entered into the 8th Month of August, The LORD said, “You are receiving many New Beginnings this month.
In July, many were brought to a place of deep Repentance and Heart Changes, as they awakened to many truths that brought them out of a season of deception,” says The LORD.
“The New Beginning that awaits you shall bring deliverance and promotion, as you step into new freedom to fulfill your purpose,” says The Father.
“Perseverance and Promotion — the power twins for Purpose. My Chosen Ones shall receive promotion as a result of perseverance. They are producing double honor in the Kingdom of God.”
I love the quote from Mahatma Gandhi:
“A person is but the product of their thoughts. What they think, they become”.
There is so much truth to ponder in that statement. We must practice moment by moment ‘taking every thought captive’ to the obedience of Christ.
We must take control of our thinking and not allow our human reasoning to rule us for we must not allow our flesh to control our thoughts. Instead, we are to LET His Mind be in us.
2 Corinthians 10:5 says, “Demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
We have been in a time and still are where The LORD is penetrating the walls of our heart to bring deliverance and healing to the dividing wall of hostility.
Ephesians 2:14 says, “For He, Himself, is our peace, who has made the two, one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing walls of hostility.”
He takes the walls that divide us — the walls that create hostile environments, wall in which many times we are doing one ting on the inside, and God is trying to do something else on the outside.
The Holy Spirit has come to do something else. He is saying, “I have come to penetrate those walls and remind you that Jesus broke down those walls.
At any time, you can choose to put them us again, but I have come to restore your peace.
Jesus says, “I AM your Peace. I AM the stronghold of your life. I have come to undergird you today, that you may continue to persevere to reach my foreordained purpose.””
Perseverance means: ‘Cheerful or hopeful endurance; to be constantly diligent; to attend diligently, with earnest care: giving regular attendance to all the exercises of something.
In other words, keep doing it with tenacity. Tenacity is simply the quality o holding on to something.’ (This statement was taken from my notes in a class long ago on intercession).
Perseverance is knitted together with patience.
The Word in Luke 21:19, Jesus says, “In your patience possess ye your souls’.
When I think of perseverance, I think of Abraham. In The Bible, he is a perfect example of perseverance.
He demonstrated the quality of holding fast with enduring strength to God’s promise . After 99 years of patient perseverance, God changed his name from Abram to Abraham — from “Exalted Father” to “Father of a Multitude” (Genesis 17:5).
The LORD spoke to me this morning, “I AM calling My Prayer Warriors and My Ministers to watchful patient Perseverance in Prayer, and a miraculous demonstration of Faith, as the battle ahead calls for aggressive faith,” says The LORD.
“Do not hesitate, for this is the greatest hour to count the cost, and meditate on The Word of God to prepare for battle, for Faith comes by hearing The Word.
So prepare ahead to finish the fight, by fighting the fight of Faith.
It is not a time of just beating the air, but a time of strategic warfare. Go forth with Perseverance as your spear, for just as I spoke to Joshua, ‘Fear not, for I have given them into your hand’.”
“And The LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:” Joshua 8:1 KJV.
‘Worship, Salvation, and Intercession is being knitted together to bring an explosion of Healing, Deliverance and Holiness that will release the glory of The LORD.
I AM breaking the yoke of bondage to fear and unbelief. My Glory Carriers will fill the land with My Glory,” says The LORD.
“Hearts shall be changed rapidly in the coming days, as I AM releasing a Spirit of Awakening that will shake up, wake up and raise up those who have been blinded to Truth, and taken captive by the god of this world.
Even before the leaves change their colors, watch, as I reveal the true colors of those who are playing “let’s pretend” and wearing the garment of Religion.
For exposure on every level of deception is here, and the Truth shall come forth with Holy Boldness to bring Freedom and destroy every plan of the evil one,” says The Father.
“Get ready to press on with perseverance to finish your race, for the fields are white unto harvest and The Nations shall come to the brightness of My Light.”
