"THOUGHTS FROM AN INTROSPECTIVE HEART"




By Mary Lindow

With the M-A-N-Y options, opinions, observations, doctrines and perspectives that every human chooses to ingest and own, I am fully aware that what I share in the following paragraphs will most likely make some angry while others may laugh, and some might feel the need to pontificate. 

Hopefully... 
...A few see it for what it is. 

Raw honesty from a somewhat "weary soul" who is yet, "a work in progress" until the fullness of truth is made complete in her. 

"The Noise" of many voices, choices and projections, has totally driven me to a place higher than me. That, "Private Dwelling Place Of Christ Alone" in thought, mood, plans, and purpose. 

Friends... The love,mercy and spirit of truth of God is being "called up" inside of each us and is required to be available and active. 
In these days of upheavals, "heavy-duty crass communication and filthy speech", natural and un-natural disasters, I'm completely focusing on simpler ministry and "clear eyes" looking at the Lord and His example because... 
...He is THE focus. 

The things of earth grow dim in the light of His glory and grace, His wisdom, His example. I'm not going down a fearful or "heavy warnings" path. Of course I can see from right to left and observe, but the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn. Growing brighter and brighter until the final day, which can be individual or collective. (My End Day might be today or 20 years from now!) 

So much division and clutching to "personal revelation" among those who acclaim to have Christ as a central focus has become exhausting, at times embarrassing, and at worst so cloyingly arrogant that the fragrance and kindness of humility is gone. 

All this excessive exaggerated exaltation of gifts and high titles and "heavy revelations" ring false, and are wrapped up in EXTREME bondage and control or a need to 
“BE NOTICED AND FEARED - OR  VALIDATED ". 

Peace in Christ, regardless of the times, is found on a simple but oftentimes, "narrow" path. 

Saint John of the Cross understood it so clearly when he stated: 
“God has to work in the soul in secret and in darkness, 
because if we fully knew what was happening 
and what mystery transformation that God and Grace will eventually ask of us, 
we would either try to take charge or stop the whole process.”

Remember Jesus's simple yet clear words to His very own...

John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. 
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! 
I have overcome the world.”

Take heart believer. 
Respond to everything, from the prompts of the Holy Spirit, 
not out of pettiness, vindictiveness or denial. 
Some prompts will be to not move into something new quite yet, 
Some will be to stay aware and alert but not alarmed,
And at times, 
The Holy Spirit tells us to step back while He tests and convicts the heart of mankind. 
It’s in these prompts that we yield to a greater ONE who’s ways are higher than ours.

Costly? Yes.
Misunderstood? Often.
Convenient? Rarely.
But to obey.... 
....is the more excellent way. 

Here’s a clear guarantee out of the mouth of Jesus, to help us on our journey.

The Holy Spirit shows what is true and will come and guide you into the full truth. 

The Holy Spirit doesn't speak on his own. 

He will tell you only what he has heard from me, and he will let you know what is going to happen. 

The Holy Spirit will bring glory to me by taking my message and telling it to you. 

Everything the Father has is mine. 

This is why I have said that the Holy Spirit takes my message and tells it to you.
John 16:13-15

"THE THRESHING FLOOR OF YOUR HEART" - WHERE GOD IS CURRENTLY AT WORK - A PROPHETIC WORD AND SONG





Dear Listener/Reader,
As I was praying and worshiping the Lord tonight, crying out from my heart over so many devastating world events, tragedies, (and my own personal trials,)  the weight of the glory of the Lord’s presence overshadowed my heart and the following spontaneous music and prophetic word/song, began to flow out from the Heart of God.  
It’s raw, unedited and timely.
Please…. Listen to His Message. Take time to hear Him.  


"THE THRESHING FLOOR" © 

A Spontaneous Prophetic Song/Word From the Lord
By the Holy Spirit & Mary Lindow

I hear the cry of everyone weary and worn.
I hear the cry of those saying they're done. Done!

I hear the questions of all of the earth saying, 
“Why? Oh why,  oh Why?”
“Why won’t your do something?
Change the world!!”

I hear the sound of the hearts of the weary,
I hear the sounds of their sighs

I hear the sound of the Mothers and Fathers
I hear their crying out! I HEAR them! Crying OUT!

I hear the sound of the abundance of rain,
I hear the hearts of that right in this season.
I hear the hearts and I hear the voices of those, who want to
Reason away the truths that I have written down with My Blood.

I DO NOT CHANGE!
I WILL NOT CHANGE FOR MAN!
I WILL NOT CHANGE… FOR MAN!

Listen as I speak, A Word of Promise
Cloaked in the truth for those who have ears to hear.

The times, they will grow much darker and harder,
Many will shed, so many tears
Until they give away, their very souls to me ALL to Me.
And say, “I’m Done with Me! God! I’m done with me!”

I Long to hear the voice of My People saying,
“Have Your Way!
“Have Your Way!
“Have Your Way!”

Distractions and things of the earth, 
they will come in a flood!
And you’ll battle your soul!
Distractions and lies, and people and blood
will come, to weary the soul.

You must bow low, again.
You must bow low, again!
And see that I am only found
On the threshing floor.

I am only found, when you close the door 
to the worldly cries and sighs,
And things you’re told that’s freeing.

I long for a Voice for Me…
…That comes from the Threshing floor

Come to that place, in your heart again
Where I have no closed ……doors
Heaven’s Calling!
Heaven’s Calling!
Heaven’s Voice is Calling…. To You!
“Come Back Again!
Come Back Again!

“There’s a price, for separation!
There’s a price, for consecration!

If you want me to move, if you want Me to flow,
If your want more of Me, then things have to go!

When the chaff, is separated from grain,
It’s done, on the threshing floor.
Done on the threshing floor.”

Come! Come back!
Come back to the clean place, where the strife,
Where the grind, where the fighting is released.

Come again…
…To the Threshing Floor.”

THE TESTING OF THOSE CALLED TO REFORM-PIONEER OR BE FORERUNNERS - “BEFORE THE NEW APPOINTMENTS FROM GOD COME” - A PROPHETIC WORD





By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH A TRUE AND EVIDENT BREAKING ARE CALLED TO A NEW REFORMATION. 
A spiritual revolution that will shake the very substance of what they have experienced in the past.

THE LORD WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT HE IS CALLING YOU OUT OF THE PLACE OF WORRY, FRETTING AND EXHAUSTION!
He wants to “re-form” in you a fresh commitment and a greater depth of Mercy that you have not yet tasted from former wineskins. He has been doing a very deep work within the interior of your being. He has been dealing with you in private personal choices and practices. He has been calling you to a level of personal consecration in areas that at one time didn't bother you at all.
He is also separating you from some affiliations and movements that have begun to manipulate the power of the anointing for personal gain and glory and have left behind the character education, of a pure and honorable heart.

THIS IS ACTUALLY THE LORD DOING YOU A GREAT DIVINE FAVOR!
There is going to be a very real and public exposure of some of the people you have related to in past movements. Much like a repeat at Ananias and Sapphirah. There is a masked financial greediness and manipulation that has begun to bring the loving hand of judgment from the Lord to those who have become toxic in the belief that they deserve more, because they assume that they are "anointed" more than others. 
These people are more interested in impartation rather than instruction and wise counsel and  - willing accountability. There is a publicizing of the “super apostle” that is drawing in those who long to be mentored and fathered, on the deception of receiving impartation without first being trained, in the price of what this calling will cost.

THE LORD IS CALLING YOU OUT FROM AMONG THEM I
NTO A FREE AND OPEN PLACE.
He is asking you to protect your families and to trust him, to bring you into a fresh newness in the calling he has placed within you.
The days of barely surviving to make ends meet are going to end. That is, if you make this step of removing yourself from the last "leashes" of identifying with past affiliations and moves. 

THE LORD IS CALLING YOU INTO A PLACE OF DAVIDIC FAVOR WHERE YOU WILL RECEIVE FRESH OIL UPON YOUR HEAD AND A FINAL ASSIGNMENT FOR THE NEXT PHASE OF HIS GLORY IN THE EARTH.

You are called to be a reformer! 
Not a just a "reporter" of the things of God.
The Spirit of God is laboring and turning inside of your inner man to deliver you to a place of joy. Something that many have not experienced in a long time!
The Lord is shouting to you, "You are a father!  You are a mother! You are my vessel!”

THE DAYS OF PASSIVITY ARE OVER FOR THE RISING COMPANY OF APOSTOLIC FATHERS AND MOTHERS NOW EVER SO SLIGHTLY BEGINNING TO EMERGE FROM THE CAVES OF HIDDENNESS.
You are now experiencing the blazing upheaval of a spiritual Reformation in all that you wrestle with, and in every arena of your life. The fire sent from heaven’s refining furnace, changes the very environment of the spiritual revolution.
It's an illumination and it is lit to be a purifying fire! A fire is intended and planned by God to bring new life. So does a spiritual revolution! Fire devastates and so does a “Cross-focused” revolution.
The fire of the Lord does not allow itself to be trapped and controlled. A spiritual revolution is held in God's hands, and restoration fire must be tended to and protected from abuse. Man must take his hands off its development, but must stay with it to protect it and to fan its sparks and to keep the embers red-hot!

THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION BRINGS WITH IT THE QUESTIONING AND TESTING OF OUR SECRET ASPIRATIONS.
It brings out our best and breaks up and exposes our worst. A spiritual revolution is like a refiner's fire. It cleanses, it sheds light and it brings integrity and separation. It restores and brings everlasting and indestructible values
"You listen when anyone in Israel truly feels sorry and sincerely praises with arms lifted towards her temple. You know what is in everyone's heart! So from your home in heaven you answered their prayers, according to the way they live and what is in their hearts." -1 Kings 8:38-39
A heaven ignited Reformation fire is like hell to the stubborn and ego driven, and it certainly burns the love of God into every devoted person! It is without a doubt the situation that happens when inside of us there is a personal "re-form-ation" of a softened and melted heart “remodeled” for the sake of the softening and melting the hearts others.
"He will sit and judge like a refiner of silver, watching closely, as the dross is burned away. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold or silver, so that they may once again, offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord."  Malachi 3: 3

A FRESH MOVE OF GOD NEEDS A MAN OR A WOMAN  TO STAND IN THE MIDST OF ALL THAT IS RUPTURING AND CRUMBLING!
A revolution of the spirit will need people, purified from the need to be "publicly validated" or honored, to finally begin.
Moves of God are remembered and documented in the earth by its men and women, those who have the nerve to stand in the place or gap of change.
Those who will not allow the fresh streams of promise from heaven to be muddied with religious buzzwords, or glamorous advertisements! Reformation and revolution of the spirit must come God's way, according to God's point of view and intention, but they first must begin in a man's heart, where God does his deepest of works.
"I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it."-Ezekiel 22:30
A man or woman synchronized with the heart of the Lord and leader of the ever-increasing kingdom! A man or woman who is devoted and set apart to be poured out and with a heavenly measuring cup!
A man or woman who understands this driving force and who also has the hell fearing power of humility, and welcomes whatever position God has adapted and called them to, according to the Lord's own measure of allowed influence and assignments to lead or instruct others.
"I will raise up for MYSELF a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my heart and mind.        I will firmly establish his house, and he will minister before my anointed one always."- 1Samuel 2:35

THIS KIND OF SPIRITUAL REFORMATION WILL ONLY TAKE PLACE 
if such a man or woman is trained through the weathering of life’s storms, learning to stand, and to stand without giving in to the pressures that taunt and attempt to wear them down.
A revolution and a brand-new clarity for being devoted to heavenly causes, will swiftly be ushered in when the people of God are brought back to a holy reverence over the price to be paid in prayer and personal sacrifice on every level, with the willingness to pay the price for the precious move forward to actually happen!
"Yet I am always with you; You hold me by my right hand. 
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
Who have I in heaven but you? There is nothing I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever." -Psalm 73:23-26
 The world sees strength in the “actions” that man takes to achieve personal success and the size of his portfolio, his belongings and affiliations.
Christian beware!

IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE CALLED TO A SPIRITUAL REFORMATION,
it is known that actual strength lies in quietness and in the intentional policy of surrendering power, in order to be "Em-powered."
May we be found in this hour of extremes and shaking, to be men and women who value the treasure of a life trained and prepared, in the God appointed caves of weeping and solitude.
Out of these "clefts in the rock" there will come forward a company of Saints with the scent of heaven’s fire still on their garments of worship.
Look for the fruit of mercy in their hearts, and the evidence of a blessed and humble peace upon their faces. These are the sons and the daughters of the Divinely orchestrated spiritual revolution.
 "They will be called the holy people, the redeemed of the Lord;
And you will be called "sought after", the city no longer deserted." Isaiah 62:12
