We’re even invited to come in. No, we will never be forced, nor our choice taken away. We’re even given every opportunity possible. So, to help make this Open Vision more plausible, let me share something Lord spoke to me.
AUGUST 8, 1981 He said: “I will talk to you today, Separate yourself”. As He stood before me in a bright silver robe, He said, “I have been with you, I love you and I have given you special things. You are My friend and I am your friend. Do not despair or fear, I have promised to be with you always. I have an important work and it must be done. You have been chosen above many, you are worthy, and I will be pleased. I have blessed your family and they will be a source of strength to many.”
Lord continued: “Stand fast, you cannot be moved, My chosen are invincible. I have filled you with many gifts and much understanding, power even you cannot comprehend. Your ways may seem unbelievable, but they are My ways, I have imparted My feelings unto you. My feelings of hurt and of joy, treasure My confidence in you. I picked you before the foundation of the world. Compare the time we have and your strength of faith is the strength. I have many chosen, you are of a few. You are a mighty warrior; do not be in despair for I am coming. Do not faint for I bring strength and refreshing.
Do not be of want for I bring all things with Me to your children I have given and they shall know that which was given is for My use and I shall be pleased. To Ann promises were made I will keep. I have spoken these things to you for your encouragement. All things I do are unto good. In My eyes you stand tall. Be not marred by what you appear, for I have given you a blessed position and your strength is from My right hand. Go and be strong.”
Side Note: Jesus coming to earth was to restore and deliver us, His greatest creation from the curse of sin following Adam and Eve’s failure. It cost Jesus His life that He gave willingly to give us the choice of life or death, heaven or hell. What He gave was a gift called Salvation and available to all. The significance of sharing this Word is certainly not to build me up, but to let the reader see that Jesus’ calls is not to come to a comforting tea party, in fact the opposite. It is not to free us of our responsibilities; it’s more like moving us forward in battle, but toward victory, also meaning battles.
Taken from chapter one book I wrote titled: “Step Into His Presence” that uncovers many spiritual declarations unseen by much of today’s modern Church world. Yes, time world checks out the right Church that’s rising higher and higher by the day. Yes, a big winning just ahead attacking our evil storms while winning countries back to where and what they we’re created to be.
