WAITING AND WORSHIPING - The Catalyst Of Apostolic Origins





By Mary Lindow 
WHAT IS THIS OBSESSION THAT IS BEGINNING TO DRIVE PEOPLE AWAY 
FROM RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES AND STRUCTURAL PROGRAMMING?

Is it fatigue from fleshly efforts?
Is it weariness with well doing?
Or!
Is it the beginning of a matter?

"Self Is The Blurred Veil That Hides The Face Of God From Us.
It Can Be Removed Only In Spiritual Experience, 
Never By Simple Instruction."
- A. W. Tozer

The Lord is allowing man to have the joy and shock of coming to the end of his means of prodding and producing until he falls into a heap at the feet of the One who has the key to the place of hope and rest!

He. 
The King of tranquility and Divine Purpose, 
has the place of Sanctuary carved out in a definite place.

THE PLACE OF WORSHIP
" But the time is coming--it has, in fact, come--when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter."
"It's who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself--Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration."
John: 23-24 (MSG)

THE CATALYST OF APOSTOLIC ORIGINS BEGAN WITH A "PLACE" OF SANCTUARY.
Those waiting for the Move of the Spirit of God in an upper room. Hiding from the world and its pressures and threats! Waiting. Worshiping.
Asking the heart questions of,
"Why are we here? What are we waiting for? Who is this all about?"
We are Again...
...In the same place.

AND FINALLY - AGAIN, 
WE ARE SIMPLY RESTING IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE LORD HAS BROUGHT US TO END OF THE OF THE PAST WAYS AND FORMS OF MAN.
He is preparing the way of His Power with a place of personal introspection and heart searching until we see that we must be truthful in our worship of Him. 
We must come into agreement with His Spirit and the way that He desires to move among those who know Him and among those who do not.
Old things are passing away. LOOK! He does a new thing!
New to us.
BUT Not To Him.

AS WE BECOME OBSESSED WITH THE IDEA OF NOTHING TO PERFORM,
nothing to take to task, nothing to self generate but only to "marinate" and saturate in, we see the promises He has made begin to be realized.

SO OFTEN AS OF LATE, IN PLACES OF MEETING AND GATHERINGS OF HUNGRY SAINTS, THE HOLY HUSH OF HEAVEN HAS FALLEN WITH SUCH SWEETNESS AND SIMPLICITY.
All the fancy trappings of "noisy worship strategy" pale compared to this heavy rich perfumed presence that descends on those who will wait upon the Lord and grow stronger. There is no need for airy or trendy teachings and thoughts. No need for the pious and well versed to instruct in well-oiled speeches implying the way to go.
As we wait.
Humble.
At His feet...
...He moves upon many within the Body to rise up and declare, to share, risk, expound and grow in the Grace of God, as well as in much Mercy.

HEAVEN LONGS TO KISS THE EARTH AGAIN.
The King of Heaven is descending with an unexplainable and definite wave of stillness.
It is His manifested Presence.
In His Presence. His Sanctuary.
Is fullness. 
Completion.
Needs met...
...And Joy.

COME. LET US BE MAGNIFICENTLY WRAPPED UP IN HIM!
 "O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;
My soul thirsts for you, My body longs for you, 
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory."
- Psalm 63:1-2

THE ETERNAL VOICE OF LOVE - "Consulting The Father" - A Prophetic Insight



A Prophetic Insight From the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow

But I do nothing without consulting the Father. I judge as I am told. 
And my judgment is absolutely just, 
Because it is according to the will of God who sent me; 
It is not merely My own. 
~John 5:30 (NLT)

So! Do you now see how I your Savior receive My power, My Grace and heavenly insights? I do nothing...absolutely NOTHING without the input of My Father’s voice. He and I are one in thought, action and judgment.
I am challenging you and those who claim to walk in the supernatural privilege of hearing My voice, to consult Me on every level. I will only advise in accordance to My Father’s voice and will, in all of your affairs in life.
As you learn the joyful discipline of only heeding the voice of the Master Shepherd, you will find a pattern of absolute security surrounding you.
My ways and thoughts are so much higher than yours because they come from The Eternal Voice of love, created and sent down! My Father, your Father! The Mystery of the Godhead is not so difficult when you understand unity in thought, action, and purpose.
As a child of God who knows My voice and as one whom has known My Divine Presence, what else is there to do but to praise Me?

“Praise! It is the perfume of heaven!”
The living! The living! They praise You as I am doing today!
Isaiah 38:19a

Yes! Praise Me for as long as you live! You were created to praise Me in this life and in the life yet to come!
When the weariness of life and the dustiness of the road you travel on become too overwhelming, too taxing... Remember! You are living in a great time of harvest! Praise Me!
When the time comes for you to take your final breath, the days of your life which have all been numbered. Then, you will step into a new dimension of praising Me.
Bring with you the praise tokens of your life. The words you have spoken about Me have been recorded. Your praises have been written down in My book!

Trust. The issue that everyone on earth deals with day in and day out. Putting your trust in things that last for only a season or a few years can be very risky and very disappointing. I have told My people to trust in ME with ALL of their heart and I will make their paths straight. Yet- continually they put their trust in people, and idols made of gold (money) positions of power and in themselves!
Lasting blessings can only come from trusting in Me. The real issue is that you don’t really think that I will do what I say I will do! So... You take it into your own hands! When you finally lay down your need to control the universe and those all around you and trust in Me, then you will be blessed! Blessed with safety, peace of mind and above all blessed by My pleasure in your resting in My plan.

“O Lord of hosts, 
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!” 
Psalms.84:12
.... Let me see your face, let me hear your voice; 
For your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” 
Song of Songs 2:14

This is the heart cry of those who know that nothing else in life can truly satisfy them. My voice, and the looking at My face causes a deep peace and rest to “nestle” into their souls.
It is like music to the ears when My voice is heard like a melody from heaven. Ever so true in pitch, and in message. My face is full of compassionate expression and tenderness! 

Look at Me!
Seek Me in prayer! 

Prayer is an intimate time of communication between you My bride, and I! As we “look intently” into spiritual dimensions together we will delight over the Father who proved His Divine love to us and through us!
All you need to do to see My face and to hear my voice is to ask Me to speak to you and to show Myself to you! Why are you so afraid? I am not a man who will lie or make false promises!

My beloved! Risk everything! 
Come closer to the flame of My Spiritual fervor! 
Just ask!

A CHRISTMAS MESSAGE - "What Chains And Fetters You?"




By Mary Lindow
Greetings Brothers and Sisters!
 I’m sure that you’ll remember the story that on Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is locked up in the darkness of his dim house. Dickens tells us, “Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it.”
Today, we still know that darkness is cheap, easy to find, and its raw materials of despair and denial are in abundant supply.
Scrooge liked darkness, as we often do, because it hides what we fear, keeps us from facing what is true, and allows us to be blind to truth. But like so many things that come cheaply, our overindulgence in them comes at great cost.
Out of Scrooge’s darkness appears the ghost of Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s former business partner. Marley comes not to haunt Scrooge, but to free him. Scrooge sees that Marley is bound in chains. “Why are you fettered?” Scrooge asks.
“I wear the chain I forged in life,” Marley says. “I made it link by link, and yard by yard,” and he tells Scrooge that the chain that will fetter him in the darkness is even longer, heavier and harder still, if he does not leave the darkness.
WOW! There is a lot of wisdom here!
Though chains placed by others might fetter us, most of our chains are forged by the part of our spiritual self that likes the darkness and shuns the light. Marley was fettered to cashboxes, deeds and ledgers, as was Scrooge. 
What would fetter or chain you?
Brothers and Sisters, the life of any leader or person in some form of care, supervision or one with employees or volunteer workers, a person with a bit of over-site over others, needs to be bravely examined, fully exposed to the pure and strong light of God’s eyes and checked often for hardness of heart, the love of acumen, pride in achievements and the over lording of others.
Jesus coming into the world—God in human skin—announced what had been hoped forever, that the captive person would be released from the darkest prisons—physical and spiritual. To our inner spiritual soul, our chains and fetters will be crushed, if we are willing to leave the darkness. Like Scrooge, do we need to be “scared out”? Shaken from slumber?
Scrooge could not receive the simple gift of Christmas, so ghosts rather than grace were sent. But, the result is love.
We need the light of God’s love that by its very nature is a love that comes to give us and those we serve, value and worth, not a love that comes because we are already valuable and worthy.
The entire point of "A Christmas Carol" is that Scrooge is entirely unworthy of God’s mercybecause Scrooge has no mercy! But! Mercy and love come to Scrooge through the judgment of the ghosts, and this "transformation" makes the unworthy Scrooge, worthy again.
The light of God that comes as love, forgiveness and hope is a light that brings judgment. I know that most of us get uncomfortable when talking about God’s judgment, because we are so afraid that we are unworthy of God’s love.
But, look at Scrooge! Without God’s light, without the promise of God’s love, Scrooge is doomed!
It is love and judgment bringing him into the light. Can we now see that judgment by God as a form of God’s love? His way of exposing the darkness of our own souls? Romans 2:16 has proof of this probing of our secret lives!!
“And this is the message I proclaim--that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone's secret life.”

Oh friends! Will we ever fully learn that God does not love us because we have value, but instead, HE loves us to give us worth? Life without the pure love of God coursing through our being is a vapor and miserable! 
Let's say to the Spirit of God with all of our hearts, the words Scrooge humbly uttered after he was confronted and faced his darkened heart.
"I will honor Christmas in my heart, 
and try to keep it all the year."

What is Christmas?
When Heaven kissed earth with the greatest act of sacrifice...
... Sending us a Redeemer. 
Who is Christ the Lord?
He IS THE Spirit, of CHRISTmas!
  
Let’s Humbly Pray this prayer together,
Father God, be gracious to me I pray, according to your loving- kindness. Father, my sins are heavy against me and my soul is troubled. For the many wrongs I have done against you and for the many evil thoughts and unholy attitudes I have allowed to influence my heart, and rule my life, for far to long.
I have sought to condone my wrongdoings, and ignore the voice of my conscience within. And I ask your forgiveness for my foolish pride, in ignoring the gentle promptings of Your Holy Spirit.
Forgive me I pray, and restore to me the joy of your salvation. For you have promised that all who truly confess their sins will be forgiven and returned back into a right relationship with you - and cleansed from all unrighteousness.
Lord the sacrifice of my heart is brokenness before You, My soul is truly contrite and my desire is to return into a right relationship with you. I know that the consequences of my wrong choices may remain with me for a long time – but I ask that in Your grace and mercy You would forgive my sins and cleanse my soul and restore me into a right relationship with Yourself – and my heart will rejoice in God my Savior, in Whose name I pray,
Amen.

The Restructuring and Refurbishing Of Everything - “THE CHALLENGE BEGINS”





A Prophetic Insight For Today's Church 
By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit 

The Lord has shown me that there are a great number of Divine plans being drawn up and a re-designing going on in the lives of those called to move into the roles of Kingdom modeling of the Father's heart, the Savior's desire, and the Holy Spirit’s purest functions in the Body.

"See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms.
To uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow.
To build and to plant."
- Jeremiah 1:10
  
A PHASE OF "REFURBISHMENT"
The Lord spoke to me in this time about His house of worship. 
As we put first and out in front of everything else, the “becoming of safe shelters” and hearts of men surrendered to him as yielded vessels, there will be rooms re-designed by the "Master’s craftsmen" that will be filled with strategically planned prayer initiatives, music rooms equipped with "unpolluted spiritual headsets" to hear the songs of the Kingdom and then actually record and share them freely. 
Church sanctuaries will become more like "family rooms" where multi-cultural groups become "one family" as they fix their eyes on upon the "fireplace" of the presence of the Holy Spirit and His Upper Room visitation type of power and might, accompanied by inspired teaching from God’s word.

 "I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me,
And what the King had said to me.
They replied, "Let us start refurbishment."
So they began this good work.
~ Nehemiah 2:18
  
I AM RESTRUCTURING EVERYTHING
"Yes says the Lord!  I Am restructuring everything in your lives that I have allowed to be taken and shaken from you! How can you be examples of My fresh demonstration in the earth with the worn out living of the past?
Those who continue to cling to the accolades of the past and bygone ministry meetings and services (even if they were recent) will receive a limited amount of new responsibilities until they realize that the past is... PAST!
Each day is a new day and needs a fresh approach to the fresh design template that I AM revealing!"
"The day for building your walls will come, 
the day for extending your boundaries."
 Micah 7:11
The unseen prophetic and travailing groups of individuals, who are being shaped into the fabric of my own weaving, are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of stride. 
What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with purpose. Release of My grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your cycle of instructions for this past season. 

"My friends don’t be surprised at the painful things that you are now suffering, 
Which are testing your faith. 
Don’t think that something strange is happening to you.
 But you should be happy that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings.
You will be happy and full of joy when Christ shows his glory."
1 PETER 4:12-13

SHOUTS OF JOY
There will be shouts and tears of joy as heaven moves upon the hearts of wise, kingdom-minded saints, who have been given grave responsibility over heavenly blessed currency.
My sober, truth-seeking saints, will hear my voice and will not be moved by flashy pleas for glamorous support and promises of free gifts in return!  No! They will be led by the counsel of my Holy Spirit to be vessels that release a steady flow into the hands of those ready to only build with the name "Jesus" on the final product.
The financial institutions will be dumbfounded as supernatural windfalls hit many believers, while worldly concepts and scheming only further muddy the waters of universal finance.

RE-ESTABLISH A NEW "HABITAT OF WORSHIP"
Allow Me to do this work of re-construction without hindrance or fear!
I will RE-ESTABLISH a new "habitat of worship" within each of My people who allow Me to walk into each room of their hearts, tearing out the embedded dirt, grime and staleness of passive and fearful living.
Accusing and harsh judgments, disrespect for others who have devoted their time in preparation, and -critical attitudes will be purged again and again in the hearts of believers who have yet to see those whom I lovingly call beloved and faithful, even though viewed as awkward or fragile in the eyes of the immature or worldly heart.
"All who belong to the Lord, 
 show how you love him!

The Lord protects the faithful, 
  
But he firmly rebukes
 everyone who is proud."
Psalm 31:23

A TIMELESS DESIGN
It is the day for each member of My Body to think of themselves as one Godly unit, ready to honor and edify each unique Master plan of their King.
It's the hour where building upon egos and entitlement is over and the conviction of My Spirit goes to work, until the knowledge of humility and eternal reward are viewed as the most perfect and timeless design.
 "Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts,
Try to excel in gifts that build up the church."
~ 1 Corinthians 14:12

AN ASSURANCE FOR RELIEF
As the training in humility and gentleness of “heart-expanded compassion” are applied in your lives as friends of Me, your King, your souls will stop from striving and from chasing after lofty goals you set out to accomplish in your own strength.
You will learn to listen to the wisdom and warnings of others in simplicity and in humility. In gentleness you will sincerely approach one another as I the Lord do to you.  Although I am the wisest among you, I put no heavy yokes or shameful methods of performance upon my children.
I simply yoke them to Myself in a promised rest when they yield humbly. 

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
For I am gentle and humble in heart,
And you will find rest for your souls."
Matthew 11:29

A PROPHETIC WORD CONCLUSION:
" Hear Me!  - Cries the Spirit of Holy Grace and Mercy!
I desire to move upon, in, and through each of you. Not one of you alone can endure the onslaughts of evil by standing aloof and silent. Nor can the most vocal of gifts among you clearly communicate all that I long to express.
Until each one is willing to step into the Holy place of pure relationshipwith Me and with one another, waiting, crying out in prayer, Yes - even waiting until I come and refresh, then those ready for training and release who are waiting in the wings will not fully come forward.
Until it is imprinted into your heart that this segment in time is for the saving of the lost, the redeeming of the wasted, and the release of the power of My glory, you will be so very frustrated by the heaviness that continually harasses your soul.
What I authorize, I protect. 
Be certain that you have heard what I am saying.
I am fully aware of the weariness and fatigue you have been experiencing. Heavier than anything you can recall from the past.

“Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, 
As though something strange were happening to you!” 
1 Peter 4:12
There are many others globally who are also still wrestling out of the cocoon in newness and are suffering also. PRAY FOR THEM!
Conflict will be a normal disturbance in the days ahead. Unless you harness the power of consistent prayer and train yourselves in regular gatherings of prayer and worship together, you will shrink back into serious doubt, anxiety and dread when the trauma of warfare attacks!!

GIVE VOICE TO MY SPIRIT!
Awaken your silent tongue and give voice to my name, My power and My Kingdom Solutions! No resistance executed against you will ultimately succeed! My Spirit longs to broadcast wonders, to decree Justice, and to destroy darkness with your lips proclaiming from the spirit. 
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: 
It will not return to me empty, 
But will accomplish what I desire 
And achieve the purpose for which I sent it." 
Isaiah 55:11
 Speak out in truth and in praise and I will step into your midst with the peace you have been craving and seeking for. Quickly! Enter in before you make decisions and exchange ideas with others who might dilute what I am speaking to you!
When I am given My rightful place of honor and reverence…
… Then I will speak and give you clear vision and direction."

"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning
I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. "
Psalm 5:3
