You know...  That last thing He whispered into your spirit...  Did you hear it?  Was it a word of encouragement?  Was it a reminder of something you forgot to do?  Did He draw your attention to someone on the street who needed help?  Did He caution you to slow down or get some much needed rest?  Did He kiss your face with a gentle breeze or warm your skin with the heat from the sunshine?  Did He invite you to spend time with Him in prayer or in the Bible?

Did He talk to you about the times you've done things together - just the two of you?  Did He bring old memories to mind...  Did He let you hear or sense or see something so beautiful it made your heart soar with joy?  Did He lovingly rebuke you for something that He's told you to stop doing...or start doing...because you belong to Him and He has things for you to do that you cannot begin to imagine? Did He tell you again that He loves you - that He's calling you - that He misses time with you?  Did you know that He was talking to YOU?

He said something.  I know He did.  Because He is Who He says He is - and He loves you so much!

How many times have people said that GOD doesn't talk anymore?  That He said all He had to say when Yeshua/Jesus was here...  That is so incredible! That people would think that He's changed like that, when His Word says He never changes!  If He talked before, He's talking still.  If He had stuff to say 2000 years ago, who could possibly believe He ran out of things to say!

I don't know about anyone else, but I need to hear Him all of the time.  I'm not smart enough to navigate this life on my own.  He knows what's coming and what He wants to show me.  He knows what I need to hear from Him in order to be able to finish this race in good form.  Life is sometimes so crazy!  People NEED Him!  I need Him and I know it.  I hope you know you need Him, too.  And that you know He IS talking to you and to all who will listen.  Remember it is written in Psalm 95,

"O come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD;
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with a song of thanksgiving:
Let us shout joyfully to Him with songs.
For the LORD is a great God
And a great King above all gods,
In whose hand are the depths of the earth;
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
The sea is His, for He made it [by His command];
And His hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker [in reverent praise and prayer].
For He is our God
And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.
Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts and become spiritually dull as at Meribah [the place of strife],
And as at Massah [the place of testing] in the wilderness,
When your fathers tested Me,
They tried Me, even though they had seen My work[of miracles].
For forty years I was grieved and disgusted with that generation
And I said, 'They are a people who err in their heart,
And they do not acknowledge or regard My ways.'
Therefore I swore [an oath] in My wrath,
They absolutely shall not enter My rest [the land of promise].'"

"Today, if you will hear His voice..." Today.  Listen.  He's talking. Saying some wonderful things, no doubt.  Because He is Who He says He is.  And He is God.  Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.  Psalm 73:28 says,

"But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge and placed my trust in Him, that I may tell of all Your works."

And finally, Yeshua/Jesus said to remain in Him.  We need Him.  We need His words to us, written and spoken.  We need to present ourselves before Him to be taught by Him.  There is still so much to learn!  There is still so much to know about Him!  He knows our needs even better than we do.  He wants our love, even as He loves us. 

Pour yourself out, beloved one.  Stop thinking He has nothing to say to you.  If you said 'yes' to Him once upon a time, then say 'yes' again today. You're not your own, you know. You were bought and paid for with a great price - the price of His very life given for you.  Let your appetite for Him GROW! Never be satisfied with where you are in your spiritual walk with Him. Desire more!  Desire to know Him more, love Him better and declare His gospel to others.  You'll need to be able to hear Him to do it the way He wants, when He wants and where He wants you to do it.  You can hear Him if you choose to draw close to Him.  You absolutely without a doubt can hear Him.

Before He left this earth about 2000 years ago, He spoke to His disciples - His followers - and gave them these words of instruction.  They're as relevant for us today as they were then...and they were given to you and to me as well, so I'll close this blog post with them as a reminder to all who read here.  The words are written in John 15:1-17,

"I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit]. You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]. Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. [b]I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken off] branch, and withers and dies; and they gather such branches and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you [that is, if we are vitally united and My message lives in your heart], ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified and honored by this, when you bear much fruit, and prove yourselves to be My [true] disciples. I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. 10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. 11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.

12 “This is My commandment, that you [c]love and unselfishly seek the best for one another, just as I have loved you. 13 No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you keep on doing what I command you. 15 I do not call you servants any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you [My] friends, because I have revealed to you everything that I have heard from My Father. 16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name [as My representative] He may give to you. 17 This [is what] I command you: that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another."

His glory reigns across eternity
His beauty far beyond description
Light pours from every part of His Being
Stars innumerable sing in perfect harmony
Blazing with the radiance He assigns
They announce His magnificence
To all of His creation.
Even darkness must bow to His name
To His holiness
To His headship
No voice will remain silent at His coming
All will acknowledge that He alone is King
He alone is LORD
He alone is worthy
Of Glory
Of Honor
Of Praise
Of Worship
Of Obedience
Of all that we are!
How can we know the number of our days?
We are but a vapor
A breath of life given to remain
For a season…
Formed by the One True GOD
To live for His divine purposes
In each one of us.
Oh, Father of Lights
Roll back the heavens!
Thunder with the Voice of Many Waters!
Stay Your hand of judgment
And let Your Gift of Mercy
Hold us close
Draw us nearer to Your throne
Open our eyes to our sin!
Purge our hearts of the unclean
Set us on right paths
And give us hearts of fire for You!

I heard the LORD say,
"Need Me now."
The message He gave me is below. He said it first thing yesterday morning. As the day wore on, I continued to hear it and pray over it, because He told me it is for many people. He instructed me to put it on here and my blog. I pray for all who will read it to listen for His voice in what is written. Here is the message...
"Too many of My children have become distracted and are in danger of great deception. There are many who have already succumbed to deception because they have not chosen to stay close to Me and require Me as their greatest need. Many believe they are doing fine, that all is well, when indeed it is not. In My written word I warned my children of great turmoil and disasters to come upon the world in the end times, but many have been lulled to sleep and do not believe there is any cause for concern. Therein lies great deception, but there is yet more to come.
Many have put their hope and confidence in political leaders. They believe things will be alright because of a man or woman in office. That is deception. Men and women are still flesh and blood! They are not Me, and yet many trust in the 'arm of flesh' rather than in Me. I counseled My people about that very thing. Do not put your trust in the arm of flesh, for it will fail. Only put your trust in Me.
Many have been led away through the cares of life. Chasing after bigger and better, more and improved, faster and smarter, they allow themselves to be led away from Me through the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life. Patience is not considered a virtue, but rather an inconvenience. Humility is looked upon as weakness and generosity is thought to be wastefulness. Many are incapable of being satisfied because of the paths they choose or have already chosen. They have not put their trust and confidence in Me. All else will fail. All else will pass away.
There is calamity coming upon the earth, but many refuse to see it. They consider My true prophets to be 'doom and gloom' Sayers. They have itching ears to hear those false prophets, pastors and teachers who say 'all is well', because it satisfies the selfish desires to continue to live and do whatever they please. They do not know they need Me. They do not want to hear that I am not going to let things continue down the path they are going.
The world is going to reel to and fro, just as I said. Many will die because of the days ahead. Many have already died - in their sins - taken unaware because My people have not believed My word nor followed My commands. What I do I do because of My love, but many of My people have forgotten or been deceived and they no longer believe that I am also a GOD of justice and I require and will have a holy people. I will not have a people who think they can live and do and say whatever they please, thinking that I will wink at sin. I didn't send My Son to the earth so people could continue to live in sin, unrepentant and staying in rebellion, yet all the while believing that I would turn my head and ignore their evil ways. I will not. I will have a bride who has made herself ready for Me. Read it in Revelation 19:7,8. She will be permitted to wear the wedding garment, which signifies the righteousness, upright, just and godly living, deeds, conduct and right standing with ME. She will be clean because she has shown Me her love by putting her faith in, following and obeying Me.
Many will be offended or scoff at these words. Whether through errors in teaching or pride, many will not receive this word I give today. But those who belong to Me will continually seek My face and inquire of Me for truth. Do not let your candlestick be taken away. I am the Light of the world. I am the Source of your provision, for I am the Creator of all things, the All-Ruler, King of kings and LORD of lords. I am here now, but the days will come when many will seek Me because of the pain and suffering they endure, but will not find Me because they have not forsaken this world and its treasures in search of Me, thinking that they could put off or ignore - or even laugh in the face of GOD - and that I would not see or hear. They have lusted after many things. The days of trouble that are coming will be greater than many have imagined and they will come suddenly. But those who have drawn close to Me and who require Me for their every need will hide in Me, for they hear even now the warning voice of My Spirit that time is coming to a close. They hear and see the sounds of greater war on the horizon as the enemy, Satan and his minions continue to divide, lure and draw away many people through deception, playing on the unrepentant and proud souls of mankind.
Do not be afraid of what is coming. This is not a message of fear. It is a message and a call to repentance and faithfulness to Me. It is a reminder that deception has entered the world in greater measure than ever before and it will continue to increase until many fall away from Me. Don't be caught in the deceptions! Ask Me to open your eyes spiritually. Draw close to Me and listen. Stop chasing after the things of the world and spend time with Me, studying, praying, listening, obeying, fasting and worship Me with all of your heart. Don't just read about and know the scriptures, rather live the commands I gave you. Don't just let your head be filled with the knowledge of what is contained in the Bible. Walk beside Me in this world, serving Me by doing what I commanded.
Go into the world, but don't be part of it. Go into it to bring people out of the snares and lusts found in it. See your great need and know that you can do nothing good without Me. You cannot survive without Me. You cannot even breathe without Me. Your heart will not beat without Me. Don't be over-confident in your ability to succeed without Me, for even the heavens and earth will one day be destroyed and replaced. Require Me with all of your heart. Require Me in every circumstance, through every word and deed. See that you are in great need of Me. Need Me now. Need Me now.
I will not fail you and I call you to come back to Me fully. Return to Me, your first Love and stay here. I will care for you and protect you. There will be hard things yet ahead for you to endure, but your peace will be found in Me as you draw close, surrendered to Me and My love for you. Trust My wisdom, child. Know that I am able to do all things that need to be done. I am your Maker and I love you. Again I say to you, need Me now."
