Let US begin again. Now I want to talk about
“forgiveness.” Children, I want to speak to you about this matter of
forgiveness. MY children are unforgiving in their hearts storing up
grievances against each other. I cannot forgive those who don’t
forgive. Is this clear? How can I forgive you, if you, yourself cannot
forgive those around you? Does not MY Word speak of this?

Forgiveness is love. Unforgiveness leads to all kinds of sin:
bitterness, revenge, wrongful judging, and on and on. It gives a
foothold to the enemy to come in and destroy you. This keeps you
from closeness, intimacy with ME, your GOD, and keeps you from
receiving MY SPIRIT. This is serious.

Matthew 6:14. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
FATHER will also forgive you. But if ye forgive not men their
trespasses, neither will your FATHER forgive your trespasses.

If you are unforgiving, you cannot be ready for MY Soon Return.
This will hold you back. It separates US.
Leave this unforgiveness behind. Forgive each other. Lay down
your anger toward each other. What do you gain when you harbor
anger toward someone else? You suffer more than the person you
are angry with, can you not see this? Is your eternal salvation worth
harboring anger toward another?

Mark 11:25. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought
against any: that your FATHER also which is in heaven may forgive
you your trespasses.

You must search your heart and ask this question. What is worth
losing your eternal soul over, a petty dispute? Forgive and walk
away and feel a dark cloud lift. Even if the other person won’t forgive
you, pray for them, yes pray for your enemies. Pray for them with a
sincere heart and I will warm your heart to those who harm you. I
will give you a heart of flesh.

How can you expect those who do not walk in MY Way and those
who do not possess MY HOLY SPIRIT to treat you as if they do?
You must render patience, kindness, longsuffering to those who do
not know ME. It is impossible for those who do not know ME, truly
know ME, to behave as if they do. Can you not see this? You
cannot expect this from those who walk apart from ME.

Matthew 5:44-45. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless
them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may
be the children of your FATHER which is in heaven: for HE maketh
HIS sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the
just and on the unjust.

The world thinks it can run apart from its GOD. It fools itself. Only I
hold everything together. Only I bring the right way to live, to men.
This world, that shuns ME, lives under false direction and evil
deception. It all has become so evil.
There is no truth, only compromise and deceit. Apart from MY
Perfect Ways, mankind lives under deception and corruption.
Nothing or no one can be trusted.

Only MY bride, who remains in the earth and walks in MY Perfect
Will, is on the straight path. Only she is stable and true. All others
walk the unreliable path of evil—unstable in all its ways.
Soon the bride will be removed and the world will lose all its light.
Darkness will be all consuming. This day approaches.
Forgiveness: the key to making your way back to ME. Forgive
everyone. There is no unforgiveness worth losing your very soul

Luke 6:37. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and
ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Daughter, this is your LORD Speaking. Let US begin: Now I want to
offer instruction in living with others.

Too many have disregard for each other – little patience, little
respect. This is all leading to strife. It leads to discontent, hurt
feelings. MY children are selfish. They want to be first in all things.
They are very insensitive to the needs of others; they fall short in
caring for others. This leads to arguments, anger.
Children I am saddened by this, but the crux of the problem stems
from self- centeredness. This comes from a lack of humility.

Proverbs 15:33. The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

Only from a humble heart will you be able to live among each other
You must lay down your desires and give so those around you
remain content.
This requires taking a back seat to all those around you. This is the
way of the humble. This produces fruit: peace, contentment,
pleasant environment.
Few learn to live like this. Few find this Truth. But it is the way of
peace, MY Way.

I give these rules for life so that MY children can live in peace and
contentment, yet they choose their own way and ultimately have
strife and much discontent.
When will they learn MY Road is the best Road to travel? I know
everything. I know how MY children can best live together. I give
rules and precepts to guide MY children into homes of peaceful
dwelling and contentment. This, of course, requires that MY children
lay down their ways and desires and follow MY Rules.

Psalms 34:14. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and
pursue it.

Selfish choices lead to unhappy homes. Let ME Rule over your
home. Let ME Reign in your hearts. MY Way is Calm, Peace, Love.

I will bring your home into the happy dwelling I meant for MY
children. Submit your hearts to ME willingly and I will rain down
Your household will exude quiet assurance, love, and peaceful
living. Walk in paths of quiet contentment, humility, and caring for
others’ feelings bring fruit of satisfaction. Let ME rule over your
household and I will deliver a home of gladness and joy.

Psalms 37:11. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight
themselves in the abundance of peace.

Verse of the Day 12-19-12

“And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven” Luke 1:76-78 NIV

John 10

New International Version (NIV)

The Good Shepherd and His Sheep

10 “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

19 The Jews who heard these words were again divided. 20 Many of them said, “He is demon-possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?”

21 But others said, “These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”

Further Conflict Over Jesus’ Claims

22 Then came the Festival of Dedication[b] at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. 24 The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”

25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[c]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’[d]35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.

40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true.” 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.
