It Is Time

Stephen Hanson

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. ECC 3:1

"You are entering a new dimension, a new dimension of time and space. This new time and dimension has been prepared since the beginning of time. It is time to let go of old is time to let go of old things. It is time to begin anew. This is the time to let go of grievances. This is the time to embrace your families."

"What is there to begin anew with, you may ask? Begin anew with each step you take towards Me. It is time. It is time to put away childish things. It is time to let go of the past. It is time to work together. It is time to plant, and it is time to reap as well. It is time."

"It is time to work together as one team. How can an engine work properly if not all of its parts are present? Surely, it will not start, and surely, it will not go down the road. Surely, it is time. It is time to spend more "time" with Me. It is time to spend less time watching TV. It is time to put away those things that are distractions."

"It is time to forgive. It is time to go on. It is time to walk in humility. It is time to give thanks. It is time to grow-up. It is time to go on to maturity. It is time to pray for those around you. It is time to put away your selfishness. It is time to seek Me first. It is time. "

"It is time to eat meat and not drink milk. It is time for the "true manna" from heaven. It is time for war, and it is time for peace. It is time to train your hands for battle, but it is also time to seek peace and pursue it." "The ocean rises and falls. Its waves pound upon the shores. My time is recorded in nature. The winds blow, the rains fall; seasons come and seasons go. I record the events of your lives. Step into the music of the spheres. It is time."

The Doors Are Open

Bill Burns

Do you not see and can you not perceive the work that I am doing? If you would but come into the heavenly realm, into the land of the Spirit, I would show you that I am about to give gifts unto men. I have set before each of you an open door. You would say, "Where is this open door?" I say to you that it is in the heavenly place. Therefore, you must ascend, you must come up, you must elevate yourself in the realm of the Spirit. You must move into the position that I have set for you. There is a door for each of you, giftings for the days that are ahead of you. Come! Do not allow the circumstances of this world to hold you. Do not allow your circumstances to bring fear. Do not allow the evil one to tempt you away from the path that I have set you on or the place that I have prepared for you. Again, I say come!

How would you know that these doors are there? It is written, ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened. I say come, for I have open doors for you, and when you move through that door, no man can shut it. It has been reserved for such a time as this. It has been reserved for these, the days of glory. It has been reserved for My sons of glory, and I call unto you now to come forth in the kingdom position that I have prepared for you. I say again, come! Come.

Come and you shall find. Come and see the glory of that which I have held for you even in this moment. Come, children! The doors are open. Knock and it shall be opened. Come through the door in the heavenly realm and be seated at My table. I have set a table even in the presence of your enemies, and I have set a feast there for you to feed on. My good gifts are found upon that table. They are waiting for you to receive. Will you by faith come? Your place is set and your name tag is there before you. Heed the invitation this moment, and come receive the gift that I have saved for you even for this time, says the Lord God Almighty.

The Days of My Altars are Coming Back

Sandra Moats

The Days of sacrifice are again coming to Jerusalem. My people will again know Me in their hearts. They shall sacrifice and know the forgiveness of sins as times of old. Yeh, they shall know My sacrifice, My Chosen One in these times. They shall understand My Chosen Sacrifice, My Son. Wait! And see the salvation of the Lord comes!

In the west the altars will be filled as of old. My people will flow to the altars and lay their sins before Me, and I will ignite the fire of My Holy spirit within them. I will burn the dross from their hearts. The word of the Lord is spoken; it shall come to pass.

My people come to meet with Me. I draw them by My Holy Spirit. Into the Sanctuary they come, flowing in to meet with their God. All over the world I shall draw them that they might know Me. Wherever they meet is My Sanctuary. My Sanctuary is the place where My people meet with Me.

My altar is in their midst wherever My words are spoken from. My altar is at the feet of My Son Jesus. My altar is the place where My people place the people, and things they treasure in their hearts. It is the place where they bring their sins, then rise up, turn and walk away from them. My altars again shall be filled in these times. My people come!

I am drawing My people in carefully so as not to lose one. I saw a fishing line with many fish hooked on the same line, and I saw it being reeled in slowly.

Regarding Holiness

Carolyn Wies

I take issue with you, says the Lord, regarding holiness in your lives. Some have taken My call to live holy and have called it legalism. You have deemed My call to be in this world but not of it as too great a call for you, so you continue to compromise and eat at the table of this world and her temptations. You ask yourself: "How much sin is too much sin for you?" The real question is: "How much sin is too much sin for Me?"

I have given you grace so that you may live Holy! Grace is not provided for you as an insurance that you might live as you wish and have the bounty of Heaven also. This life determines your future state in all eternity. Grace is your substance from heaven- My gift to you at great price to Me. Grace to be strong and live above the downward pull of the things that cause good men and women of high calling and noble purpose to be reduced to the price of a loaf of bread. Some never recover, but I have better things for you.

Holiness is the foundation of My house. Righteousness are the pillars that uphold My very nature. I call you to be men and women of righteous character and holy hearts before Me and before this world you stand before as My witnesses. There is not enough difference between the church and the world for them to take serious notice, but there is arising a people who will take Me at My word to live holy and be carriers of My Presence them. Many of you long for this and it is the cry of your very heart. Are you willing to take up the call to a deeper place of your priestly calling and like priests of old, will you wear upon your foreheads the brand: Holiness to the Lord? Their very lives were holiness unto Me. I call you to be set apart unto Me.

Holiness is not merely external disciplines. Holiness is an attitude of separation unto the Lord that works its way throughout every area of your life - thought, word and deed; every motive and intent of the heart. Holiness is the outworking of My character in your life. It is worked in by every decision of your heart to do what is right in My sight and to come to Me in repentance when that mark has been missed. Not from fear, but from a sorrow that sin has caused a moment of separation between us. Godly sorrow still works repentance and repentance always brings reconciliation. Are you sorrowful or do you take My grace too lightly? I love you and desire you to know that love to the very depth of your being, but you must also understand the saying: Behold the kindness and the severity of God. To the pure I will show Myself pure, but to the crooked, I will show Myself afar off and that will be very severe. The rain falls on the just and the unjust and the judgments of the Lord are clean and righteous altogether - there is a judgment for My people that will determine eternal things.

Holiness of heart and spirit. This is what I desire. A holiness that is worked throughout your very being. This is what gave Jesus His power and authority over the enemy. It will be no less for you. Upon the cross He groaned in agony: "It is finished". The crowning moment of His very destiny for which holiness had prepared Him. Will you let that same work of holiness prepare you for your crowning moment of destiny? It is the only way you can face the days to come with confidence and have the authority of heaven behind you. I have come with a word to My church to cause her to see who she is to be - holy and blameless before Me. And I call you to remember My word which has come to test you - Without holiness no man shall see the Lord.

Go Forth In Power

Marsha Burns

I hear, "Order! Order in the court!"
And, the Lord says, I am seated in My heavenly court room, and I am making a judgment in favor of the saints. The time has come when I will demand order, and those things have created chaos and confusion will be removed. I will not tolerate abuse against My chosen vessels and have issued a restraining order to stop this mistreatment. I will have everything that offends and hinders the work of My kingdom removed. The struggle is over, the case is decided. That which has refused to be renewed has been removed so that your progress can be resumed. Rejoice in the justice of the Lord, all you saints!

Now is the time for you to go forth in power to accomplish what I have set you to do. I have gone before you the make the crooked places straight. I have already prepared the way, and the stumbling blocks and hindering forces have been removed from before you. I have opened a door before you that no man can shut, and I will usher you into a new level of productivity in My kingdom. Take full advantage of the opportunities that present themselves, for I tell you that there is an open window of time and space in which you can move ahead with great effectiveness. Seize the moment and possess the advantage as you are faced with unique possibilities. Do not procrastinate, but move ahead with confidence. I am with you!

The Loading Dock

Ina Greear

I was on a loading dock. People were working. Some very quickly and hard to get things ready for a shipment. It was a strange load.. rolling huge blankets with rope and putting them in cribs. A big piece of tree trunk that was for nothing Others were sort of working and sort of goofing off Some were just goofing off and making fun of things. There was no order or boss. Finally the ship was loaded. Someone fired a cannon - not on the dock but far away -no sound or anything It was just fired haphazard - no target.

Then I was under the ocean watching. Then an old old ship floating appeared.. I could see like I was in the water looking at her floating. It was illuminated under there.. She was wooden and like painted dark blue-or in shadow - around the upper edge. That cannon ball hit her in the lower bottom side and ripped a huge hole in her and all the contents and crew began to fall out. Then the ship fell and fell and fell to the depths. So far it will NEVER rise again. SO COLD - SO SAD In my mind I think USS CONSTITUTION. But I did not see this so don't know it.

The people on the dock were doing such stupid things. Like it never happened. Laughing, singing, making jokes- Sewing a wall hanging with holes in it for looking thru these little funny pictures hanging it on the side of a dock building and standing and looking thru to nothing but the wall - Filling a hay wagon with nothing but one line of purses and driving it around and around the dock. Giving a speech that made no sense and no one was watching.

No one noticed the ship go down!!!!!!!

Help America and her people Oh God and bring her back to you.. Accomplish that which you created her for and keep her in the center of your will. AMEN

The Need for Illumination

A. W. Tozer

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
--1 Corinthians 2:14

The doctrine of the inability of the human mind and the need for divine illumination is so fully developed in the New Testament that it is nothing short of astonishing that we should have gone so far astray about the whole thing. Fundamentalism has stood aloof from the Liberal in self-conscious superiority and has on its own part fallen into error, the error of textualism, which is simply orthodoxy without the Holy Ghost. Everywhere among Conservatives we find persons who are Bible-taught but not Spirit-taught. They conceive truth to be something which they can grasp with the mind. If a man hold to the fundamentals of the Christian faith he is thought to possess divine truth. But it does not follow. There is no truth apart from the Spirit. The most brilliant intellect may be imbecilic when confronted with the mysteries of God. For a man to understand revealed truth requires an act of God equal to the original act which inspired the text....

Conservative Christians in this day are stumbling over this truth. We need to re-examine the whole thing. We need to learn that truth consists not in correct doctrine, but in correct doctrine plus the inward enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. We must declare again the mystery of wisdom from above. A re-preachment of this vital truth could result in a fresh breath from God upon a stale and suffocating orthodoxy. The Pursuit of Man, 76-77,84.

"Lord, I do believe in the authority of the Scriptures, and thank You for that foundation of truth. But I need this reminder that even that inspired text is not alive until the Holy Spirit takes it and enlightens the recipients. May the Holy Spirit indeed take what I teach and imbed it in the hearts and minds of my hearers. Amen."

Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.
--1 Timothy 1:5-7

Another thing that greatly hinders God's people is a hardness of heart caused by hearing men without the Spirit constantly preaching about the Spirit. There is no doctrine so chilling as the doctrine of the Spirit when held in cold passivity and personal unbelief. The hearers will turn away in dull apathy from an exhortation to be filled with the Spirit unless the Spirit Himself is giving the exhortation through the speaker. It is possible to learn this truth and preach it faithfully, and still be totally devoid of power. The hearers sense the lack and go away with numbed hearts. Theirs is not opposition to the truth, but an unconscious reaction from unreality. Yet scarcely one of the hearers can tell another what the trouble is; it is as if they had been hearing an echo and not the voice, or seeing a reflection and not the light itself. Paths to Power, 55.

"Lord, that's a challenging thought. I'm sure that I have many times preached and taught in my own strength, without the filling and the power of the Holy Spirit. Deliver me from that error, Lord, that no one's heart may be hardened through my failure. Amen."
