LITTLE STRENGTH ~ Broadcast Transcript from September 13, 2020 with Angela

Good Morning Blessings, thank you for joining me today on this ROF Ministries broadcast.  Wow – what an abrupt seasonal change here in Nebraska – Sunday it was 100 and yesterday dropped down to the lower 40’s. Susan called it weather whiplash and I giggled… It most certainly is!  The Lord is really keeping us on our toes these days, isn’t He?  He allows the storm and He also calms it, He is so worthy of our praise and worship – thank You Lord for Your divine overseeing of our lives.  Spiritually speaking we are water walkers….  With all the chaos, storms, fears below our feet, so long as we keep our eyes fully fixated on Jesus, He promises us we will not sink and drown.  He is pulling us up and out of all the turmoil – so hey, we are gonna be okay…  Or at least that is what I keep telling my own soul.  Lol

So it seems lately it is so easy to absorb the negativity which surround us each day – mainly because we care.  We genuinely care for the wellbeing of others and so much so it can deplete us to some extent.  As what is truly within someone is surfacing – including us – the closer we get to Jesus, our eyes are being opened to see as He sees.  And I often think to myself, Lord I am not strong enough for this burden I carry for others, both in the World still and even those in the church.  The pressing can be a bit much at times.  What is the pressing?  The pressing is that Jesus is the answer to all our troubles – He is there waiting, to take hold of their hand and help them through the dark place they are in.  But only those with ears to hear will hear and therein lies the dilemma.  It is stunning to me to actually know so many who profess to be Christians and yet get angry if you encourage them by pointing to Him.  And that right there is what I was not prepared for – how about you?

But we press on, towards the high calling, to the mark, to Jesus, our Prince of Peace and the one our soul loves.  Because, its all about choices…  The choice we make today, lays the foundation for all of our tomorrows and it is evident, sowing and reaping has never been so real.  It is true we may not have the full picture to what the Lord is doing – but keep in remembrance, we have always been granted enough direction and wisdom to obey Him.  During these speculative days of men, it is imperative we perceive and embrace God’s heart.  The media platforms are so full of mixture and how they are discipling people to their own views of what is truth is staggering.  As our eyes become opened to the fullness of the Word, it is so easy to discern what is mixture now – but who can endure it?  It is within the Church people are actually making money to make you afraid.  The scare tactics they are using is evidence they have stumbled to a new low.  To not only serve the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, but to profit from it? Oh my… Lord have mercy.  Who knew over a year ago when the Lord gave me the words “selling the drama” it would come to this?  I want to remind us all that Jesus should be exhaulted above every name.  And above all knowledge, wisdom, revelation, signs and wonders… We have a choice to make each and every day – It is my prayer we choose Jesus lifted up.  When He is our choice, nothing moves us to react, but rather we respond by compassion just as He would.  As we cease from our own labors now, He does a mighty work within us and through us, so nothing has to be calculated on our parts.  Jesus alone is our stability in that we are not tired, weary and feeble in the mind.  And remember a double minded man is unstable in all his ways…. Guess what he speaks with?  A forked tongue – serpent speech is toxic and poison.  We are either moving from strength to strength, growing in our intimate relationship with Jesus or weakness to weakness.  The beauty in Jesus is, when we are weak, He is strong – so it is a win-win, when your life is surrendered fully to Him.

As the truth is being exposed in who we are actually dealing with – let’s remember to make our yes, mean yes and our no, no.  We cannot remain inconsistent in our actions and love to one another anymore and have credibility.  Our walk must match our talk and if it doesn’t, well… when the pressing comes it will when its over, that’s a guarantee.  The Lord is not looking for big grandiose performances – He is looking for sincerity of the heart.  The smallest of gestures done by us by the purity of the heart is huge in His eyes, which the grandest of gestures with mixture are not accepted as a Holy offering unto Him.  I love this – because no one is counted out, as long as we give our all – we’ve done all we can and that glorifies Jesus to the highest degree.  Consider the ant, comes to mind…  Some of us are like a teeny tiny ant, but recognized by only Jesus, so much so no one would scarcely consider us – but our Lord most certainly does.  So it is in this mixed up World we find ourselves, I mean find our true selves – as worshippers of Jesus.  It is by seeking Him within us, finding Him and placing Him above all else that tries to enter and taint who we were created to be from the beginning of time.  As we wash ourselves with His Word, our eyes begin to open, no longer tainted by the darkness, we rise and shine like the children of light who are purposed to be those beacons pointing to Him and Home.  I was thinking about how in the Bible people are often referred to by the word “sea” and I was pondering with our Lord how it is the sea of people who often seek to drag us downward, spiraling along with them – so for this reason it has never been more eminent we fixate our eyes continually on Him or we could be swept away so easily.  Sadly, the truth is there are a lot of demons out in the World these days dressed as humans.  And if we get caught up in their chaotic confusion we too could drown.  Lately, I find myself often gasping for air, due to the toxicity of others – which reminds me to hold fast to what I know, as the Day of the Lord is quickly upon us.  So this is a great reminder that if we are locked into anyone or anything more than Jesus – if anything IN THIS WORLD has our attention more than Jesus does – then our broken condition is often self-inflicted, isn’t it?  Does that make sense to you all?  We are not often the victims we think we are, we just decided to dance with darkness way too much.  I am speaking to myself here, as well and I never really thought of it this way before.  The truth is – evil company corrupts.  And I know we need Biblical precepts for that truth, because it sounds sort of offensive, doesn’t it?

Let’s read in 1 Corinthians 15:33 – Be not deceived; evil communications corrupt good manners.

It would be a really good idea for you all to read that whole chapter – but for now, you get the picture, right?  Speaking about evil – corrupts us, because to recognize something we must be familiar with it.  In the next verse it says – Awake to righteousness and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God; I speak this to your shame.  Again pretty plain and simple, once awake, once righteous we stop sinning in this way, by discussing evil ways – having knowledge about our Lord, focused on Him – no time for entertaining evil, let alone be curious about it.  We are then filled with THE GOOD NEWS, we speak of Jesus at that point, if we are really changed into a new creature. 

He goes on to speak of different kinds of flesh bodies and how we are raised up from death and corruption to incorruption and from dishonor to glory and from weakness to power.  We are sown upon the Earth a natural body, the Word tells us, we are raised up in Jesus as a Spiritual body.  WE ARE A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST – this is not only speaking of what is to come, this is relevant for where we are today.  Verse 48 tells us – as is the Earthy (speaking of humans) are earthly so are the Heavenly, also are they that are Heavenly and just as we once bore the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the Heavenly.  He goes on to tell us – flesh and blood (alone) cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (which by the way is at hand – not necessarily in some distant time and place, but now for His own) and he says to us that also those who are in corruption will not inherit incorruption.  He is speaking about death here because without Jesus we are already perishing.  There is a mystery here – that not all shall sleep (natural death/remain an old creature) but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in a blink of an eye, at the last trump upon sounding the dead (corruptible) shall be raised incorruptible and BE CHANGED.  He goes on to tell us the corruptible must put on incorruption and the mortal (perishing) must put on immortality.  And this He tells us is – when death (eternal death) is swallowed up in victory, death (corruption) has lost it’s sting against who?  Us, what? Our flesh… Because at the end of the Chapter it says, THE STING OF DEATH IS SIN AND THE STRENGTH OF DEATH IS THE LAW but we have been given victory over all sin which so easily ensnares through our precious Lord Jesus. Wow – for those of you all who caught this – I bet you are doing a happy dance in your chair right now.  No one has to sin any longer unless we choose to do so.

When the Lord calls us – when He tells us to rise up, walk… be healed, made whole our countenance changes, doesn’t it?  All the curses of death which were upon us were smashed and in their place is actually victory over sin and death which does corrupt – we have living power within us to really for real – go and sin no more!!!  And as a man thinks, so is he… so if we think we are a sinner – we will walk out a life of sin BUT if we think we are victorious over sin and that it cannot sting us to corrupt us anymore – guess what we will walk out?  A sinless life, we are being raised incorruptible by evil darkness losing it’s grip, no longer walking by lusts, rather as children of the daylight.  Someone please tell me you see this spiritually!  Once we perceive ourselves not as sinners, we will be more steadfast, unmovable and constantly abounding in the work of the Lord.  The enemy wants us to thirst for evil, so that we believe we are sinners who crave to sin so it is okay to just be a sinner – but we were created for so much more than this!  Once you see this – someone can offer you some evil to dine on, listen to, watch or partake of and YOU, your INCORRUPTIBLE SELF will so rapidly and easily say – no thank you. 

Oh my word… how did I get off on this topic?  Lol… oh well, Oh I know… Evil company corrupts good manners – like a rotten potato will corrupt a whole bag of them unless it is removed.

So some of us are having bad potatoes removed from our lives and it hurts our hearts deeply, doesn’t it?  Yet, we trust the Lord – that it is best for us and them because He has a purpose and a plan which is perfect, knowing the end from the beginning and all that’s in between… It doesn’t mean they are bad or we are good or that one is higher or lower than another – It simply means His will is being done eternally in our lives and theirs in which naturally there must be separation.  We will find a greater understanding of how He is purifying us in such a beautiful way in Colossians 3 ~

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

So you see at every turn the Lord is showing us to not behave in death and darkness – to return to the innocence of HIM to our initial plan and purpose – to put away old and childish ways, which are not our divine appointment for today as children of light and love and children of God, not children who disobey Him because we know Him and to know Him is to love Him and when we love Him we will do just as He says.

Okay… moving on…. Literally. Lol

Now we need to have a serious discussion…  Because many of us are ultra-sensitive in the heart and spirit right now.  The World has rejected those who are not its own – so therefore, those in the World have rejected us and wow, it can be very heartbreaking.  And don’t think about this from the stand point of saved and unsaved… but rather those who are loyal and those who are not.  Those who were purposed to love and haven’t walked it out – those who professed love and when it came time to push through, walked away.  And to deflect they will usually turn it on you, so they do not have to own up to their part in the abandonment.  Its okay, listen, people did the same thing to Jesus – just remember when He was going up to pray before His death and He pleaded with a few disciples to stay awake with Him, He surely was in need of comfort and agreement that night and they all fell asleep – so an angel came to strengthen Jesus.  You remember that Bible story?  Well anyway, some have done the same thing to us… they “fell asleep” when they prior professed they would diligently stay awake and walk with us.  And we too have another comforter sent to us to encourage and strengthen us, just as Jesus is in our times of need.  When God allows this to happen I always remind myself, His ways are perfect and chances are He used me for a season and a reason and that He very well could be intervening to save me from something horrific I have no idea about.  It is in HIM WE MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING, it is in Him we find gratification to our souls, peace which looks ridiculous in the storms and life everlasting because He really will never leave us or forsake us – He is not like man, who will lie, thankfully.

In spiritual maturity we understand that not everyone thinks like we do or acts like we do – so to swim in the mind sea of “I would never do that to someone” only stirs up discontentment and chaos – so let’s put that to rest right now and lay those thoughts at the feet of Jesus.  To no longer seek to control or hold anyone to legal binding words – just forgive, release and bless those who have hurt you in such a way, as you hand them over to the Father for His saving mercy and grace to embrace them with His love, in order they have a space and time to repent.

Alright, to bounce off this… I need to discuss something very important with you all.  This message right now is for those who are highly sensitive in nature to the wellbeing of others.  Those who have a gift for discerning if someone is “okay” spiritually or not at any given moment.  You are sort of a heart reader – and can easily tell when the words of another are not quite lining up with what is in the heart, causing you much internal pain of the heart.  If this is you – please listen up for a moment.  It is likely you are wondering not only what is happening but why? 

I love a quote I received today from Pastor Russ Walden, who said – The Lord called us to have character, not be one.  Which means, He called our walks to match our talks, to no longer put on a front of holiness in the view of others and then do iniquitous evil things when no one is looking.  When being purified, all the mixture is burned off – and it is our job to make ourselves ready for the coming of the Lord.  When we first are saved by calling out to Jesus – He washes away all our past sins, making us clean – our sins are thrown into the sea of forgetfulness and are gone, forever.  We have a fresh start, a reset, and are actually born again, spiritually speaking – How amazing is that?  Thank You Lord.  However, from that point forward, it is our job to repent and turn away from iniquity to truly go and sin no more.  And when we do sin and are convicted that we immediately go to Him with a sorrow in our heart for being disobedient – to be cleansed once again, to resist all forms of evil and not partake in it any longer – repentance is key to being in God’s family.  Right now all over the World the Father is pleading with His people to get right with Him, I keep wondering how far He will have to go before they listen and return to Him?  It is heart-wrenching at times to view from afar – while we sit quietly in prayer.  And this is what it looks like to be sensitive in the Spirit right now…  It is like you are overwhelmed with a solemn and sober heart to lament on behalf of others, having put away childish things.

Finally, as I kept going to Him in tears on behalf of the backslidden and those caught in mixture – pleading and praying and often thinking this is just too much to bear…  The Lord comforted me to comfort you all, who are feeling the same as I am.  And this is a portion of what He said ~

A Message Delivered ~

The Father’s Embrace of Those with Little Strength

September 13, 2020

My Precious and Crushed Daughter –

It is I who placed the Earth into motion and ordained who would come and who would go and when.  It is I who gathered the angels together and sprinkled the skies with the light of their glory and it is I who plucked each one, purposely sending them as Messengers down to Earth for the glory of My Name.  For they have tasted and seen that I am good to deliver the fullness of My love.  They do not resist the fullness of Me, but rather embrace the way in which I lead them back to My security of safety.  All that I do, I do for the remnant of faithful followers who call out to Me day and night with their whole hearts, which cannot be divided. 

Presently, who the World calls My church, is infiltrated with imposters, seeking to save their own lives, through their own wills to be done and I will not plead with My people much longer.  For you My chosen ones, it is time to be still and know I am God.  Let the heathen rage and seek knowledge of good and evil, denying the wholeness of Me, in which there is no shadow of turning.  They will trip upon the snare of pride, which so easily draws them in, as they gather unto themselves those who are of a likeminded soul, mirroring themselves. 

Again, I say to you – come out and be separated, sit in the silent, secret place with Me until My indignation passes. Pray continually, longing and looking fervently for that day of hope, when I gather My elect from the four corners of the Earth.  I command all things into existence – your hope is found securely and solely in Me. And now that your eyes have been opened, you must trust Me with all things, including those you love, especially those you surround yourself with, who are mixed with miry clay; distorting the vision of the blind leading the blind, only to find both of themselves within a ditch of knowledge. 

The tide has turned now, in which calamity after calamity is the call I put forth – but who will hear?  Who will see?  Who will call out to Me in truth, turning from their wickedly devised plans, confessing their faulty finds one to another?  Until My people mourn, there is no saving grace.  Until My people hear from Heaven, there is no resolution or rest for the soul. 

But you My child, who the World has counted out and the church members have refused to hear, are safely and securely in the bosom of My love – so absorbed, you hear our hearts beating as one.  You, My love, are just now in full observation of seeing on display, that which I love and that which I hate.  Is that word “hate” too much for you?  Do you not realize I despise evil and did not create it, as man has spoken that falsity to you?  Again I say, I did not create evil.  All that I create is good, but rather it is man who strips the purity away from what I create, infusing it with evil through pride.  It was pride which caused lucifer to fall and it is pride which has always set the course before, the fall of all men. 

My chosen vessel resist pride and evil at every turn, seeking obedience above all sacrifices, even so, before the alter of My Son Jesus.  I know you have little strength and have not denied My name, but you must hold fast until I come and not be swayed by the words of man, who’s breath is like tongues of fire to destroy.

Above all things, guard your heart, lest someone steal your crown of life, which is My righteousness dripping down out of Heaven’s throne to infuse you with the hope of My quickened return.  Be warned, as you continually long for My appearing – there are those who long for My delay, in order they be not caught in their snares of deceit; who will persecute and humiliate you, in order to pressure you to deny that which you’ve known from the innocence of a child. 

Those who belong to Me, will never be plucked out of the hand of My vineyard of readiness.  The time of My coming is at hand, each day I come and abide with those Who love Me, with the purity of their hearts.  Listen for and hear My still small voice, in the midst of the proclaimers of Earth based wisdom.  As I lead, you follow.  I am separating and I am dividing, by My calls to come close and be one with Me.  I am taking you beside still waters, where those caught up in works refuse to go.  I am searching high and low for those who are satisfied with only Me, knowing this World has nothing to offer them.  Watch – continually learn from Me, let me reveal to you more and more about those things on Earth, which I love and gather unto Myself and those things on Earth which I hate and cast away. 

Did you hear My trumpet call of choice, which has gone out?  It is through this call, those who refused to make a choice are forced to do so – and when your eyes are opened Spiritually, it is plain to see who is and is not with Me, as many attempt to purchase the fruit of their hands, which carry forth the desires of their hearts and not Mine. 

Love is not your ticket to Heaven, for even the heathens love one another, My Son is… The only way to enter into My loving embrace and acceptance.  At this very moment My eyes are searching the Earth to see who truthfully loves Him.  Every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. 

The question is – Who is bowing and confessing now?  Who is clothed in humility now?  Who is within the containment of purity now?  Who is eating of the Tree of Life now?  For those My dear… They are the ones to watch.  Watch therefore… For when the sun sets in the West, the light shall arise in the East and all eyes will behold Him and His reward is with Him.  His reward shall shine with the brightness of His coming and all will know I have loved you with an everlasting love and be greatly ashamed they didn’t. 

Awaken My people out of the sleep of selfish pride.  Awaken to soberness and truth.  Awaken to the gathering unto Me, for My Bride is already, ready.

Eternally yours,                        

Your Father In Heaven

Okay…. That was a lot and probably a good place to stop for today and there are a few things in what He gave me I don’t even have full clarity on myself.  When the Lord speaks, it always shakes me a little or a lot truthfully.  Before I go, I must share the Scripture He gave me to go along with His words.  Although this may seem somewhat uncommon to you all, He gives me writings like this all the time – He just rarely releases me to share them.  All I ask is for you to pray about it, take this to Him and of course, test it by the Spirit and Scripture.

Proverbs 6 is what He gave me, for those with ears to hear ~

My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.

27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

33 A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

34 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

So we must ask ourselves…  Is the fullness of His Word too much for us?  Do we prefer to have our ears tickled with the candy coating words of what is pleasing to the eye and ear? 

When we still prefer to negotiate with one another or even the Lord over what He has conveyed to us in His Word, then it reveals just how much mixture we still have within us.  Jesus is coming for a pure chaste Bride – meaning no mixture what so ever.  When negotiating His word, has become something we fall back on, then we are on a very dangerous path.  The Lord is calling His own to turn back from all wicked ways of iniquity and really, for real… go and sin no more, abiding with Him always.

As we begin to love what the Father loves and hate what He hates we have proof internally that He truly is ruling and reigning over us in our hearts.  To no longer desiring to sin IS HIM RULING & REIGNING OVER US…  I know we have so much more to talk about regarding this, but I am going to leave it with that for today so that you may seek Him more and ask Him to reveal more of Himself and more of yourself to you.  It takes both to be His… To KNOW HIM and to KNOW OURSELVES.  He always reveals before He delivers, in that He gets the glory.
