The God who Sees -The God who Hears - The God who Knows


By Mary Lindow

EL ROI – Hebrew for the God who knows and sees all.


”THE RIGHTEOUS MAN OR WOMAN RUNS INTO
THE STRONG TOWER OF THE GOD WHO SEES”

(Genesis 16:13)


ARE YOU LONGING FOR REFRESHING FROM THE HEART
OF GOD THE FATHER?


Are you in a place where you risk laying down what might cost
you your past history, and which will create a new and fresh
beginning in the walk of the saint on earth?


Sadly, many choose to return to the safe place of familiarity and
control to gain perspective, and lose the joy set before them. They
also will return to religious metaphors, forms, and familiar patterns
as to how to deal with difficulty or things out of their control. No
nation will be changed, no crisis will be silenced as long as the
believer does not first deal with the issues that are hidden and
that are well nurtured within their own flesh.


THE FATHER IS WATCHING THOSE WHO ARE NOT
CREATING AGENDAS AND PROGRAMS TO ATTEMPT TO
HAVE AN "EDGE" DURING THIS LONG SEASON OF
TRANSITIONING.


He is allowing the breaking and "coming to the end of ones' self"
to continue. Few have stepped over the line into the abandonment
He desires from those who claim that their lives are for His use.
Breaking is not done just through loss or strain, It is also a
persistent blow to the hardened soul who presumes that they are
perhaps more blessed or more righteous because it appears as if
the Father is blessing them above their brethren who appear
impoverished, humiliated, and even sick in body. BEWARE of the
lies of arrogance and selfish ambition! It was a similar voice that
tempted the Savior to bend the Word of God to fit His situation.
And He as your model, stood firm against the voice of any
religious spirit and temptation and did not cave in under pressure.


IN THIS CRUCIAL HOUR
Yes… Right now even as you read and contemplate, the Lord is
not requiring acts of greatness and profound gatherings to bring
glory to His plans. The Lord says these words to those who will
choose hear:


"THE SACRIFICE I WANT IS A BROKEN SPIRIT.
A BROKEN AND REPENTANT HEART,
THIS MY BRIDE, I WILL NOT DESPISE. (PSALM 51:17)


WHAT IS IT THAT JESUS THAT JESUS WANTS FROM US…
…REALLY?
The obedience to do the simple, and often at times… mundane
acts of “silencing our fleshly need for action and control."


JESUS REQUIRES THOSE WHO WOULD BE HIS FOLLOWERS
TO A RADICAL DEVOTION AND AN EVEN MORE RADICAL
DEPENDENCE ON GOD.


His followers must be meek,
Must not retaliate,
Must go beyond the Word of God’s “rules and regulations”
and instead, understand its spirit.


They must do what is right when only God is looking,
Must depend on God for their needs
And pursue His interests rather than their own.


HIS DEVOTED FOLLOWERS MUST LEAVE SPIRITUAL
MEASUREMENTS OF OTHERS' HEARTS AND ACTIONS,
“SEEMINGLY GOOD OR BAD” - TO GOD.


In short, true people of the kingdom live for God, not for themselves.


ARE YOU IN AN “UNCOMFORTABLE” SEASON BECAUSE
YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WALK THE NARROW PATH?


But small is the gate and narrow the path that leads to life,
And only a few find it.
Matthew 7:14


THIS IS THE AGONY THAT TURNS INTO A GODLY DELIGHT!
When we fully realize that only God the Father can be the full and
well trusted Redeemer and Rescuer in all of our life situations
right now!


So Fear not! He is dealing with the hearts of those who still cling
to hidden control over their brothers and sisters.


HE IS PROBING EACH HEART WHO CALLS HIM LORD!
He is allowing a spiritual discontentment and a holy frustration to
stir up all unsatisfied and unfulfilled hearts until they begin to wail
out loud,

“How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?”
Psalm 13:1


HOW MUCH DOES EL ROI CARE?
“Are not two sparrows sold for a cent?
And yet not one of them will fall to the ground
apart from your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.”
Matthew 10:29-31


THE LORD IS TRAINING US!
Do you ever wonder why there is such a limited level of joy and
rest in the heart? It is because until the body of believers in Christ
have a heart that is broken and repentant for assuming that they
are allowed to call the shots in decision making in this life…He will
not expose us to His full measure of Glory!


Psalm 19:13 (CEV)
Don't let me do wrong on purpose, Lord,
Or let sin have control over my life.
Then I will be innocent, and not guilty of some terrible fault.


IT IS TRUE THAT THE KINGDOM IS AVAILABLE TO US
ONLY BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH; BUT…..
But! Genuine faith means genuinely embracing and yielding to God's
reign, not simply acknowledging it and then passing it by as if it did not
exist.


The kingdom is a treasure, and those who really believe it will sacrifice
everything else in their lives for its agendas.


Professed Christians who crave worldly wealth and position but are not
nearly as excited and consumed with the advancing of God's kingdom,
really need to take a brutal and laser piercing look at the true state of their
souls.


When we preach that people who simply “pray a prayer” will automatically
be saved from hell regardless of whether they truly commit their lives to
Christ and commit to trust that He is saving them from sin (from
selfishness, from going their way instead of his), we preach a message
other than the one our Lord has taught us.


2 Timothy 2:19
“Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this
inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who
confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."


Romans 10:9 (CEV
So you will be saved, if you honestly say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you
believe with all your heart that God raised him from death.


ONCE WE PASS THROUGH TIMES OF DISTRESS,
HE WILL RETURN WITH HIS FRESH AND SWEET JOY!


Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me—
Now let me rejoice. Psalm 51:8


IT IS AN INTENSE STRUGGLE TO CHOOSE TO BE EXPOSED
BEFORE GOD!
But the delight of allowing nothing of the soul to influence your
decisions when the Lord speaks and gives command far
outweighs this present suffering between spirit and flesh!


“If you put yourself above others, you will be put down.
But if you humble yourself, you will be honored.”
Matthew 23:12 (CEV)


MANY WHO ARE NOW HIDDEN AND YES, BEAT DOWN,
TESTED, RIDICULED AND SEEMINGLY FORGOTTEN, WILL
SHORTLY PASS THROUGH THE OPEN DOOR OF FRESH
OPPORTUNITIES…


…AND PATHWAYS OF TRUTH WILL LEAD THEM.


“He makes me strong again.
He leads me in the way of living right with Himself
Which brings honor to His name.”
Psalm 23:3 (NLV)


THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SLOWLY ARISING FROM THE
HIDDEN PLACE WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO
GROW IN WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING AND DYING TO SELF-
LOVE…
…STAY THE COURSE!


“We are pressed on every side by troubles,
But we are not crushed and broken.
We are perplexed,
But we don't give up and quit.”
(2 Corinthians 4:8)


HE HIMSELF WILL BIND UP EVERYTHING BROKEN IN YOUR
HEART, YOUR DREAMS, AND YOUR REPUTATION, WITH HIS
OWN HAND, AND HE WILL RESTORE YOUR JOY!


“He heals the brokenhearted,
Binding up their wounds.”
Psalm 147:3


EL ROI SEES YOUR PAST MISERY, YOUR PRESENT PAIN,
YOUR UNCERTAIN FUTURE.
He is so watchful that He knows when the smallest sparrow
perishes (Mt. 10:29, 30, 31).


And He is the God who sees and cares for you and I today.

“After The Fire”- A Prophetic Word

“After The Fire”- A Prophetic Word
By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow


OH HOW YOU FEAR THE PURIFYING FIRE OF CONVICTION!
It is as if you think that I might truly do something unloving to burn you
or disfigure you!


I am a God of fire! Yes!
But a HOLY fire! A fire that burns away wood, hay, and the chaff
Lying around in your heart. They are littering the places that
I want to bring My Glory into!


For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
Deuteronomy 4:24


WHEN MY FIRE PURSUES YOU,
It drives out any voice of lust, passivity, or any other enemy of your
soul!You will come to a place where you no longer need to have the
splash of fanfare or the rumblings of the earth to know that I Am in
your presence!


Instead.
The Fire brings you to a place just like it did Moses!
He saw My Holy Fire in a bush on a hill.
I spoke to Him and told Him He was on HOLY ground!
I was a still, small voice, speaking out from inside of a fire!


LISTEN! I AM CALLING OUT TO YOU!
Be quiet! Silence the noise around you!
Get quiet with me,
Put away the busyness that you get caught up into!


After the “Fire" ... a still small voice.
1Kings19: 12


MY PASSION FIRE IS CALLING OUT TO YOU!
I have things I want to whisper into your spirit man!
I have words that will sustain you through all of the fiery trials
and tests you will inevitably pass through!


IF YOU WANT MY FIRE TO BE EVIDENT
IN YOUR SERVICE TO OTHERS,
Listen to My still small voice.
It will in turn resound like a roaring ocean
to those whom you will minister to.


O Lord of hosts,
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”
Psalms.84:12


THE ISSUE THAT EVERYONE ON EARTH DEALS WITH DAY IN
AND DAY OUT.
Trust.
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.


“See to it that you do not refuse HIM who is speaking!”
Hebrews 12:25


Do you know how many times you have said to Me,
“Later! I will do it Later?”
You exhort others to obey quickly and yet you will drag your feet
and put Me off until you “feel” like following through!


DO NOT REFUSE ME WHEN I SPEAK TO YOU,
or when I send you to do something in My Name!
You might fear for your own reputation, but remember that a life could
be hanging in the balance! You do not have the luxury of “denying
your King!”


”You are my portion, O LORD;
I have promised to obey your words.”
Psalm 119:57


If you wish to be caught up into higher dimensions in My Spirit,
and, if you long for the deep that calls unto deep,
be faithful to ACT when I give you a command!


“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold
with strength in my soul.”
Psalms 138:3

COMPLEX TIMES AND ACHING HEARTS

COMPLEX TIMES AND ACHING HEARTS

By Mary Lindow

HELLO DEAR CHILD OF GOD,
I WAS PROMPTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SHARE WITH YOU A FEW
THINGS THAT HE HAS IMPRESSED ME WITH AND ALSO WHICH I FEEL
HE IS WANTING TO “IMPRINT” UPON MY HEART AND PERHAPS YOURS
AS WELL!

Proverbs 3:3
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart.

COMPLEX TIMES

It doesn’t take a genius mind to know that we are in some terrible times here in the
earth! Wars wars and more threats of wars! Economic pressures, ungodly rulers,
missiles aimed and ready to blow up other countries, more tsunamis and bizarre
weather patterns!
And this is all just one week’s worth of change and events happening!

I hear the Holy Spirit bringing a clear word of comfort and help to His people who
have ears to hear what He is saying to them. Those that are determined to follow the
voice of the Good Shepherd and not strange voices.

John 10:5
And a stranger will they not follow,
But will flee from him:
For they know not the voice of strangers.

ACHING HEARTS

The days have seemingly turned darker, uncertain, and frenzied as media reporters
shell out the hyped newscasts of doom and despair. And although much of what is
being reported may be actually happening, it is intentionally ratcheted up to keep
viewing polls well oiled and operating.

All of the noise pollution and the droning voices of the media personalities can
weary and weigh down the heart of those who have a compassionate and sensitive
spirit or heart. And. Often through all of the pressure filled “minute by minute live”
reporting, people can become restless and fearful, anxiety ridden, and heavy laden
with so much hitting them.

Proverbs 12:25
Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,
But a good word makes it glad.

It is a crazy World we live in and it’s not going to get easier as corruption and
wickedness continue to play together!

WHAT DOES A PERSON DO?

Although we are not to be totally ignorant of what is occurring around us as live in
recluse mentalities, the Lord does have a greater plan and focus for us during such
tough times.

YOU AND I AS CHILDREN OF GOD WILL NEVER REALLY FEEL AT
HOME HERE ON PLANET EARTH.

We have been Divinely implanted with a homing device deep in our spirits that
longs for the Home of Heaven. No more tears, no more night, no more longing to
fully be-long! We have been walking a pathway of preparation, each of us in
different stages of our lives, to transition from this decaying world and body into a
heavenly place of resurrection and eternal abundant life.

It’s the living here now that is so like rough grit sandpaper to our nerve endings!

2 Timothy 4:18
The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack
And will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom.
To him be glory for ever and ever

RUN TO THE SAFE HAVEN

A save haven is a place of protection, safety and hiddenness from the onslaught of
evil. Shelters are not necessarily luxurious nor are they places to be pampered and
babied in. They are underground dwelling places of safety, emptied of frills but
reinforced for protection.

Psalm 61:3
For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me,
A strong tower against the adversary.

The Spirit of the Lord is calling out to His People in this very very serious and
crucial moment to allow Him your ears that hear and your eyes that see to discern
where the signs of The Shelter for your soul are located!

THE SAFE HAVEN OF GOD IS A HIDDEN DEEP PLACE OF SAFETY
ONLY REVEALED TO THOSE OF PURE MOTIVE AND CLEAN HANDS.

The Lord is calling out to you and I;

“Come to Me! Run to Me! I know that you are heavily burdened by all of the
concentrated pressures mounting around you. Get to the Safe haven of My Safety.
A Dwelling place of Divine Rest and Protection. It will require you laying down
the things that so easily set you off and get you weighed down with concern and
anxiety.

1 Peter 5:7
Casting the whole of your cares
All your anxieties,
All your worries,
All your concerns,
Once and for all on Him.
For He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

COME TO THE SIMPLE PLACE.

“Huddle into the shadow of My Wings for I AM the Shelter and Refuge for the
child that heeds My voice and runs to Me, abandoning self made plans for
protection and self preservation.

I AM your shield,
I AM your Fortress.
But you must come to the Save Haven with no agenda in your heart or a statement
on your lips. You come to the Resting Place of Safety from the Storm to WAIT,
Ponder, Rest and rethink your Life call.”

A TIME FOR DIRECTIONAL ADJUSTMENT

We are in much need of a directional adjustment as believers right now as the world
turns itself upside down with malice, dictatorships, and political posturing. We
need to be certain that nothing of the world and its behaviors is hidden in our own
hearts. We must hear that Magnetic pulling voice of the Holy Spirit, and obey it
without turning left or right.

Deuteronomy 5:32
So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you;
do not turn aside to the right or to the left

CONTINUAL SAFETY

When we walk in the way of surrender and tenderness with our ears attuned to the
still small voice of God, we actually walk in the Safe haven or Overshadowing
safety of the Presence of God. Training our spiritual ears to hear the voice of the
Father is a lifetime guarantee of knowing when the storms or troubles will arise and
is a promise for direction to a place of Divine Protection and direction whenever
needed.

Psalm 16:9
Therefore my heart is glad
and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure

REST CHILD OF GOD. REST!

It is the hardest thing the mind and body to do! Learning to rest when the world is
screaming at a fevered pitch,” WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW!” is a hard
learned yet reachable discipline if we will lean into it and ask for God’s help.

Hear the Voice of God calling you to enter into His rest. It is a place of pleasant
simplicity and uncluttered doctrine. His Presence silences all of the noise of the day
and noise of the Head.

HIS PRESENCE, HIS SAFE HAVEN, IS A SANCTUARY…
… FOR THE WEARY

Dear child of God!
There is no judgment or shame there.
It is a restful place of learning to take up an easy yoke and a light burden.

Perhaps right now….as you read this…you might just sit back away from music in
headphones or speakers, away from the ring tones on your phone and...Enter in to
the Safe haven of God.

Lay down the weight of worry and frustration. The anger at life all bottled up in
rage and gloom! All you need to take with you into the shelter is a willing heart.
Ready to trust the Divine Protector and Provider.

Enter…

…Into His Rest.

Psalm 33:22
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

THE “CLIMATE” OF THE HEART IN THIS “GOD SEASON”



By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow

OH HOW PRECIOUS IS THIS SEASON IN THE EARTH TO THE LORD!
In the spirit I see Him strategically placing people into
settings He has had designed from the very beginning of His
heart’s plan to redeem the earth.

At this time the Master King is simply stating...
…“Hold fast; do not let go,
until I have shown you My faithfulness.”

Psalm 119:31
I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD;
Do not let me be put to shame.

This is a bit of a test for those who love to be in that
“forerunner zone” of “let’s run!”
And! There is nothing God loves more than those
visionaries that have the foresight to see what is coming
down the road!

However! The Lord does not want any move orchestrated
by His voice, “tainted” with presumptions! He really does
know what He is planning and exactly how to facilitate this!

Psalm 19:13
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;
Let them not have dominion over me:
Then shall I be upright,
And I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

WE ALL ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE “SHIFT” IN THE SPIRITUAL HAPPENINGS OF GOD.
It is going to required great amounts of personal discipline
and again...(that word!).... Accountability to each other in
order to not “sour” or short circuit the will of God for our
lives. Our old habits and way of doing things die hard!

THE LORD URGES THOSE CALLED INTO THE STREAMS OF THE APOSTOLIC/PROPHETIC TO "LISTEN WISELY”
“ to the voice of the Holy Spirit and
not give in to merchandising the anointing nor take on any
form of “one-upmanship” in these days of the tempering of
the soul.

THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD UNDERSTANDS THE “CLIMATE” OF THE HEARTS OF MEN AND
WOMEN IN THIS “GOD SEASON.”

If any ministry calling “assumes” to know totally what the
body needs...they are in error! We only know and see in
part. That is why hearing the hearts and attitudes of others
are of highest importance at this time.

1 Corinthians 13:12
”For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a
dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or
enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see
in reality and face to face! Now I know in part
(imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand
fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have
been fully and clearly known and understood by God.”

CHOSEN ONE OF GOD!
HEAR THE VOICE OF THE GREAT AND WISE AUTHOR!
He is the foremost Father of the “harvest wave” about to
break upon the heart of mankind.

He the Spirit of God can speak clearly to you and direct you
in the way you walk, make decisions, and will help you flee
from temptation.

Psalm 29:4
”The voice of the LORD is powerful;
The voice of the LORD is majestic.”

THE FATHER IS SUPERNATURALLY AND
SYSTEMATICALLY CONNECTING PEOPLE OF HIS HEART AND THOSE WITH LIKE-

MINDED KINGDOM VISION…

…to fulfill His plans in the earth. Surprising Divine
relationships will be established among those who
understand the cost of finishing past Kingdom assignments
and did not bail out when the attacks and losses came
to rob the promise and God placed vision of their hearts.

Isaiah 6:8
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
"Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"
And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

YOU WHO HAVE SURVIVED THE ONSLAUGHTS OF DISCOURAGEMENT,
anxiety, near poverty, and desperation, have been made
into steeled vessels that can no longer be penetrated by
disappointment and ridicule.

Job 11:15
“Then you will lift up your face without shame;
You will stand firm and without fear”

Your trust is in the name of the Living God who will do
exploits in the face of those who mock the people of His
heart.

Daniel 11:32
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant
shall he corrupt by flatteries:
But the people that do know their God shall be strong,
and do exploits

“NOW IS THE TIME, SAYS THE SPIRIT OF GOD, NOW!”
“Stand. And having done all you know to do and all that I
have asked you to do. STAND, and see the salvation of your God.”

Proverbs 10:25
“When the storm has swept by,
the wicked are gone,
But the righteous stands firm forever.”

“LISTEN, LEARN, AND PREPARE.”
“I the King and Keeper of the seasons have sharpened your senses to obey
only to the promptings of My voice and not the voice of man.

I will trust you with the hidden things of My Kingdom as you
honor Me with offerings of worship, songs of the Spirit,
and self-abandonment.
The timing for My plans is measured in the scales of justice
and redemption.”

Psalm 33:5
“The LORD loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of his unfailing love.”

Psalm 115:1
Not to us, O LORD,
Not to us but to your name be the glory,
Because of your love and faithfulness.

“THE RIVER OF GOD - THE ULTIMATE SUPPLY OF LIFE”


Mary Lindow


Psalm 46: 1- 7
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the
mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though it’s waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with
their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice,
the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.


THERE IS A RIVER THAT IS THE ULTIMATE SUPPLY OF LIFE!
A river is made up of flowing water.
The places the river touches...are made glad.
The cities on their shores are happy.
There is plenty of water available to them.


WATER IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE.
If that water is clean water, it is a great blessing.
But here the Bible speaks of another river, the streams there of make glad
the people of the city of God.


There is a river that makes glad the city of God.
Where does it have it starting place?


“And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding
out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."
Rev.22: 1


WHERE DOES THIS RIVER START?
It starts at the throne of God.
The river is Jesus. The citizens of this city are those born of the Spirit. Some
of them are on the earth and some are in heaven. Jesus who was broken for
us became a river. Those that love Jesus belong to that city and will one day
be lifted up when the trumpet of the Lord is sounded.


IF YOU ARE LIVING IN THAT CITY YOU KNOW IT.
It is a holy city.
It makes you happy if you belong to that city.


"The King desires in you the beauty of holiness."
Psalm 45:7


THOSE THAT WASH IN THIS RIVER ARE BEAUTIFUL.
This river was flowing even from ancient times. Abraham drank of it and
the prophets drank of it. It was in the beginning with God. Those that fear
God accept this truth. You can dig a channel from this river to run by your
house. Your house can be cleansed by this river. The fruit of the Spirit will
be seen in those that live by the river. There is great peace in their heart and
homes. God knows who belong to this city.


WHEN JESUS RETURNS TO THIS EARTH HIS PEOPLE WILL
NATURALLY BE LIFTED UP TO HIM. This river is flowing today. It
reaches you every time you think of His Name. When you are in a constant
pattern of drinking for the River, This life Source, you cannot come under
the grip of evil thoughts. Does this river flow by you?


The river of God is full of water . . ."
Psalm 65


HOW MAY WE KEEP THE RIVERS OF OUR SOULS FILLED WITH
GOD'S WATER OF LIFE AND BLESSING?
How can we keep “our streams” full?


WE CAN DETERMINE: NOT JUST TO LIVE ON THE RUN-OFF.
We can begin to keep our soul's life-streams filled when we determine that
we will not be satisfied with a spasmodic flow of grace.


PERHAPS "DETERMINATION" IS THE KEY IN STARTING.
To say:


"As much as it is possible for me to do,
I will tap into the great and permanent sources of God's grace."


RIVERS CANNOT HELP WHAT THEY ARE,
nor can they determine their 'character.' But people can choose how they
shall be filled. People can simply move to higher ground, or go to where the
water is flowing. People have the privilege of tapping into God's resources.


SO HOW DO WE GO ABOUT “TAPPING” INTO THE DEEP SPRINGS?
I want to talk about keeping our souls filled with God in these minutes we
have together.


Perhaps there is one sense in which this is a process that cannot be taught.
Our relationship to God is intensely private, and each of us must learn the
deep lessons for ourselves. But in another sense we can guide and help
each other. That is what fellowship is for, and
Meeting with others in gatherings big or small, and fellowship in the Holy
Spirit.


SOMETIMES WORD PICTURES ARE HELPFUL.
When we talk about rivers that are full and rivers that are half-full or less,
we get a picture in our minds.


BUT PICTURES CANNOT NOURISH THE TOTAL TRUTH.
They aren't the whole representation. And the goal of all these and many
other little streams (or tributaries) to our stream of life is,
an increasing awareness that God is with us, and wants to share all areas of
our life with us.


THERE IS REALLY BUT ONE SOURCE OF LIFE!
And that Source, of course, is God Himself!
God is the Source of spiritual fullness.


ALL THAT WE DO, ALL THAT WE ARE,
COMES TO THIS ONE POINT:
We were made to know GOD…
… in a very real and intimate and personal way!


GOD IS THE ONLY SOURCE INTO THE DEEP SPRINGS OF JOY AND
BLESSING IN OUR LIVES.
But He has provided what we call " the way of grace" for us to get there!


OUR GOAL IS GOD HIMSELF. NOT WHAT GOD CAN GIVE,
or what He can do for us: God Himself! But in finding God Himself, we
still see that God has provided (what we call) the way of grace that brings
us into contact with Him. Some of these paths of grace are gatherings with
other worshippers, reading and meditating on the scriptures, and daily
communion, and fellowship with God's people.


We look to meet GOD when we come together to worship!
It may seem so elementary-- but often people come together and meet because they
know they should; or they come because vaguely they want to 'receive help.'
But we must come honestly to meet God, and be filled anew with His Presence.


We read the scriptures to meet GOD.
Once again, it is so simple I hardly dare say it-- but many of us learned to read the
Bible because we know we SHOULD. Let’s read it because we see it as a love letter
from the Father. The source of all life!


We PRAY in order to be filled with God's Presence.
It is one of the things that will make a river of you instead of a dry streambed.
God's Source channel is ALWAYS full of water! We do not need to be gushing full
and then empty and dry. We can tap into the deep wells of God and stay filled with
Him!

"GOD’S MESSAGE TO CARLOS - 6 YEARS OLD"

GOD’S MESSAGE TO CARLOS - 6 YEARS OLD

Dear Child of the King,


Carlos is Hispanic and is almost 6 yrs old. His parents are from
Mexico and both came to know Jesus in Dallas, Texas while
working for Christian Employers Robert and Betty Spooner of
Robert Spooner Gallery.
( www.robertspoonergallery.com )


They have had the absolutely unbelievable wonderful privilege of
watching this family grow – in leaps and bounds like no one they
have ever witnessed. Carlos was born with infantile cataract in
one eye. Has had an implant but still sees well with only one eye.
He is a precious child. God has His hand on this child. There have
been many other shorter stories of his growth in the Lord but
today I will share a very very special one with you.


Matthew 11:25
“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things
from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.”


In His Shadow,
Mary Lindow
www.marylindow.com
www.globalprayerrooms.com


GOD’S MESSAGE TO CARLOS IN A DREAM


In Carlos’s words


God is a God of life, not of death. He gave us life to live for Him,
not for ourselves.
He created us for eternal life, not for death!
He wants we give up all things that make Him suffer.
We need to get rid all things that are dirty. He wants our heart
clean!


We must not be angry or impatient cause those things offend
Him.


He created us to be His family, to be a family starting here. Even
when people around treats us badly, we must keep a good
behavior and not to pay the same way. We must show loving
kindness so only that way we will love Him with all our heart.


God wants we live, not die!!!
We must love Him with all our being.
He told me to tell others. He sent me. I love Him with all my
heart more than anything!!!


If I am sick or anybody else, I just ask Him to heal and He heals
because I believe, I believe in Him!!!
We are family, we are family, we are family!


As he began to tell the dream, he said, “I have something to say
to you.” He then told the dream and looked each person in the
eye (6 people) and told them they must love God with all their
heart and to obey Him.


He put his hand on his dad’s shoulder and said, “Papa, you are a
good man, but you need to obey God”. He then put his hand on
Caesar’s shoulder (an unbeliever) and said, “Caesar, you are a
good man, but you need to follow God”. Then he said, “any
questions?” Isabella said “I have a question Carlos, did God tell
you all this while you were awake or in a dream?” He answered,
“in a dream”.


Then he asked again “any more questions?”
They were all weeping.


The family prays together every night and ends it with the Lord’s
Prayer. The night after the dream, Carlos told his Father,
“Papa, you hold your arms up like this to God when you pray”.
Papa now does this!


“From the lips of children and infants
You have ordained praise because of Your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.”
Psalm 8:2

“THE GREAT OVERHAUL OF THE CHURCH” - PART 2


A prophetic teaching from the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow

“THE DARKENED SOUL OF MANKIND”


This word darkened looked up from a Thesaurus
says it means; murky, gloomy or dimly lit.
Not a pretty picture!


And yet! How we wrestle and roil inside that soul of
ours when someone sees or Divinely discerns the
places in our souls that still love the things of the
world, its lures, and it’s ability to satisfy the need for
power and prestige!


We are dealing with the same spiritual problem of
the disease of “The darkened soul of mankind” from
the very beginning of time. It is still brewing away
like a fresh pot of coffee, wafting out an aroma that
is most pleasant and enticing.


We have been warned, prophesied to, evangelized,
challenged, read the “best of the best” articles and
books on the subject….but…still many of the
masses who claim to be followers of Christ, even
now… live with one foot in the World and…one foot
in the Word.

MERCHANDISING THE KINGDOM?


For some reason, there has always been the issue
of who is the greatest in the kingdom and, how can
we get there too…the quickest and most painless
way.


There is no amount of money, talent or suave
personal skill available to acquire a place of honor in the
Kingdom of God. You just might want to re- read the
story of the Rich young ruler again. He had a great
heart, had lived a pure and honorable life. But…to
give up all of his earthy wealth and comforts to go on
a journey to unknown places and people with
Jesus…was…. PAINFUL to the soul!


To be a Partaker of the Kingdom it is not suppose to
be a club or social gathering for those elite enough
to join. And yet! Listen to the plague of assertions
from many claiming that the more they have to help
build the kingdom…the better it will be. We need to
give our best offering, our image, and polish all of our
very best assets in order to be attractive to those who need to
gain entry into this place of belonging and elitism!

THE CHURCH HAS “AFFLUENCE- ZA TYPE “ME”


Oh! How our little fleshy feelings get all miffed and
testy when the Lord puts His Fiery finger of conviction
into our personally formed golden calf of idol
worship! We as believers have been hearing the
warnings to;
Be honest,
To walk in humility,
To not worship nor annihilate the apostles, the prophets, the pastors, the
missionaries, the teachers who labor among us.


THE PROBLEM OF “SELECTIVE HEARING” HAS
BECOME A TIGHTLY WOUND TIME BOMB IN THIS
TIME OF SHAKING THAT THE BODY IS IN!


The Lord has succinctly spoken about the matter of
loving the lures of this world …and yet that old
darkened and willful soul seems to passively
attempt to push away the message and…warning!


“Do not love the world or anything in the world.
If anyone loves the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.


For everything in the world—
the cravings of sinful man,
the lust of his eyes
and the boasting of what he has and does
comes not from the Father but from the world.


The world and its desires pass away,
but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”
1 John 2 15-17

LOVE THE WORLD? HATE GOD! A PAINFUL TRUTH!


We are in a time where just like Lot and his family in
the Old Testament and Ananias and Sapphira in the
New Testament, had MAJOR choices to make, so
must we…
… make a choice.


They were believers.
They had seen extraordinary signs and wonders.
They had lived in gross abundance and blessing…
and yet…craved more.


Somehow they thought that their social and financial
wealth and influence gave them special rights to
avoid the judgment of withholding all of their heart
from God. They had had so much ease and blessing
that they began to dread parting with it when the Lord
began to ask them to watch over the needs of His
people. To freely assist and aid in the advancement
of leading the desolate of spirit …into truth.


From the Very beginning of his land of choice
selection, Lot of the Old Testament, had a greedy interest
in gaining all he could quickly…even if it was coming out
of a corrupt place. In the end, he lost his stuff...and his wife-
couldn’t stand to not look back just one more time
at all she once “had and was” instead of obeying the commands
of God to not look upon the sin of the past again.


Ananias and Sapphira thought that they could lie to
the Holy Spirit and look good and receive honor in
the Kingdom without paying the price of integrity and
honoring their commitment to share so that no one
among them lacked.

THE ENCOURAGING JOSEPH MODEL


In the midst of much argument over how the Lord
has prospered some and yet why not others, as well
as the flashy and “fleshy” selling and super exalting
of the 5 fold anointing through cheesy appeals, promises of
instant blessing and a chance to even have a private
prayer time with one of God’s “shining stars” if you
give a large sum… there are those who are truly
Encouragers.


Yep! Joseph means Son of Encouragement or…encourager.
These individuals called Encouragers, have themselves suffered loss,
have been at times unjustly censored and relationally executed
by those who have been jealous of a “spiritual something”
that radiates out of the humility of soul the Joseph heart walks in.


Again Joseph in the Old Testament and Joseph in
the new…were both canvases of truth the Lord
painted His Kingdom principles upon and spoke through.


When the time of great need arose, and the time of
great harvest…these men knew the heart of why God
had blessed them so much. They knew what the
Kingdom was! It had a tangible-ness that
transcended all of the self gorging and pampering
that a "World Lover" craves!


“After all the kingdom of God is not a matter of getting
the food and drink one likes, but instead it is
Uprightness- that state, which makes a person
acceptable to God and heart peace and joy in the
Holy Spirit” Romans 14:17


THE HEART OF HUMILITY
- THE HANDS OF HELP…
…THE HOUR OF HARVEST


“We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master
builder and the worker.


We are workers, not master builders, and ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.


-- Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador


Oh! The need for bighearted giving and caring for
need of those now being prepared to be sent into
harvest fields now heavy and ripe! On the streets where
the homeless dwell. In the slums where the children are
treated as the trash in the dumps they dig in.
In the lives of those who have given their lives for others
by training, serving and faithfully pouring all they have
learned into others who have strength left o go!


A RARE AND BROKEN - EVEN “SHATTERED” BREED
of Men and Women, teams of them, prophetic
voices with evangelism and fire in their mouths are
crying out for the Father to move on the hearts of
those who have been blessed with abundance of all kinds, to
rise up and shake off the darkness of their souls to
see the potential of shared harvesting!


Just as the wealthy should never ever dictate to the
servants of God, “how to” or “when to” or “where to”
flow in the abundance of heavenly exhortations and
anointing, neither should the five fold functioning believers
ever beg, or perform in order to be able to acquire financial
substance to “send them” into the earth.


There are truly arising honorable battalions of
Josephs now in the earth, which are being given
instruction and direction as to how to assist with gifts
of unfettered and humble finance to make a bold
push, opening the gates to once hindered and
desolate places. The Lord will bless the apostle
and prophet, the evangelist, the missionaries,
the medical-hearted professionals in this hour. with
MATURE Josephs, who will come alongside in
humility and freedom, helping to care
for the laborers of harvesting and they themselves,
will harvest. They will not be lording it over others
with statements claiming that all should be in
marketplace ministry simply because either they are,
or, because they have themselves been burned by some folks
who have taken advantage of them financially in past
ministry relationships.

UNDERSTAND ONE THING VERY CLEARLY.

Not everyone who is called, yes called and separated differently than you are, and is
in the full time service of teaching others and training them, is looking into your
wallet!


Yes. There have been and will always be those who may love Jesus, but also use
that gifting He has placed upon them as a means for gaining monetary stashes for
their own “expected” wonderfulness. If you have been snagged by this in the past,
deal with your bitterness and look into the mirror of honesty and ask yourself the
question,


“ Where did I lose MY ability to discern what was of the Lord and what was my
own emotional or egotistical need to get involved with the situation?”


It takes two to tango, and to every setting there is always another side to the coin.
IF, we are willing to look at it honestly before the Open veil of God’s Eye.

THE OPEN VEIL OF GOD’S EYE
These individuals, true Joseph types, Men and Women both, will not keep tabs and
heavy handed reminders on those the Lord sends them to indeed, “Send,” nor will
they boast privately or openly about whom they are helping, how they are helping,
and how much they are “sacrificing.”


These have passed through the waters of frivolous need for notoriety and personal
satisfaction. They see and fear the plan of God, and are willing to trust Him to bring
them multiplication, to again have seed to sow, again and again.


How will you know them?


They will Talk of Jesus - Not cash flow.
They will Fear the Lord - Instead of loving the praise of men.
They will have deep lives of prayer - Not just teams who do the praying for them.
They will reflect purity in all modes of service, business, and relationships.
Their own children…Trust them.


He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the
workers are few.


Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out
workers into his harvest field. Luke 10:2

"THE GREAT OVERHAUL OF THE CHURCH"

THE GREAT OVERHAUL OF THE CHURCH
A prophetic teaching from the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow


"And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory
in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself
restore (overhaul) you and make you strong, firm and
committed." ~ 1 Peter 5:10


We have all heard about the re-possessing of an automobile or a
home, and understand that this occurs when something is being
taken back, re- possessed - because the terms of payment were
not met.


So in a similar way, the church at large is being "re-po-ed"...in
the sense of repossession or re-po-sition!


REPOSITIONED FOR WHAT?


We have been hearing the words shifting, shaking, re-aligning,
reformation, and so on… for over three to four years now. God
is sending a clear warning shot across the bow of the "church
ship" which is now finding itself in uncharted waters. I think
that if we were all totally honest about it, we could even say that
we feel like there have been times we have all been one of the
members of the famous Gilligan's Island tour group, simply
looking for a pleasant experience on the USS Minnow, only to
find ourselves on a strange island rather than returning from a
three hour tour!


THE WEATHER IS GETTING ROUGH!


Amazingly, the theme song for Gilligan's Island had a verse in
it that goes like this:


“The weather started getting rough, The tiny ship was tossed, If
not for the courage of the fearless crew, The Minnow would be
lost!”


IS THE CHURCH LOST AT SEA?


It might appear that we are in a place of great turbulence and
with all of the earthly calamities that are roaring in unrelenting
waves, we might feel that the place we used to run to for
security is also in a major crisis of sorts! The storms are raging
literally with hurricanes termed as, "biblical in proportion" by
many media reporters!


Local church establishments are inundated with traumatized
people from not just hurricanes! Utility bills are predicted to rise
anywhere from 70 to 90% due to the "Oil"shortage. Major
corporations are laying people off from long-
term jobs.
Inflation is on the rise, but cost of living salary adjustments
are...disappearing! The Swine Flu is being dramatized and
claimed as potentially "pandemic!" And we haven't even
touched the issues of homicides, child kidnapping, and the rise
in pornography and abuse issues!


THE AMAZING SHRINKING CHURCH WALLET


As people of church affiliations of all expression feel the pinch
in their wallets begin to irritate and hamper their lifestyles, the
church is going to experience a major tremor. YES. TREMOR!
What was once applauded as an " Ambitious visionary
advancement" into greater influence, will soon become a
burdensome weight to those who presumed that God was into
the "Marketing and Merchandising" wave of luxuriously
pampering the bride of Christ! Sort of like the story of the
Princess and the Pea. No matter how many mattresses were
stacked one upon the other, the pouting and over indulged
princess could still feel the irritating little pea resting underneath
all of them.


THE COMFORTER VERSES THE CONVICTOR


Somehow. The Holy Spirit has been diluted into some esoteric,
floaty, glitter duster who simply drops heaps of goodies on fat
little sheep, never warning them about over indulgence,
sluggishness or sloth! Let's look at what the Lord himself said
to us about the Holy Spirit….and the roles He plays.


COMFORTER
”But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Spirit) comes, He
will guide you into the whole, full Truth. For He will not speak
His own message on His own endorsement; but He will tell
whatever He hears from the Father. He will give the message
that has been given to Him, and He will make known and
declare to you the things that will happen in the future.”
John 16:13


CONVICTOR
“And when He comes, He will convict and prove to the human
race and bring demonstration to it, about sin and about
truthfulness of heart and right standing with God and about
judgment: About sin, because they do not believe in Me, trust in
Me, rely on Me, and hold on to Me.”
John 16:8 & 9


WHEN THE BENEVOLENT GET TIRED OF GENEROSITY


Already, the coffers of Bail-out Aid, Earthquake Aid, Hurricane
Aid, Tsunami Aid, 9/11 Aid have been fed into the enormous
gaping black hole of need. And... for a while people will pull
together to make heroic attempts to bring a fix to the problems
all of these catastrophic events churn up.


But! Ask folks to give sacrificially and then…you will see a real
reason for the need of the laser cutting conviction of the Holy
Spirit!


If we who call ourselves believers and followers of Jesus lean
upon either our own personal wealth and blessings as a place of
safety or…if we lean upon the wealth of others if we have little
ourselves…thinking that either of these things are
acceptable…we will continue to have the shaking and
convicting of the Holy Spirit "ROCK OUR WORLDS!" YES!
Both in a planetary way and in our own little "spheres of
influence" until we awaken to the reality that we are to see our
lack of trusting, leaning, relying, and holding on to Jesus as
SIN!


IN GOD WE TRUST?


When we trust in self implied or planned securities and rely on
them, or when we hold on to a hope that the wealthy among us
might be our source and answer to needs unmet…we have
wandered very far away from the shores of safety in Christ!


Human beings and yes… "CHRISTIAN" human beings can
become very protective of their "assets" if they are not in a place
of brokenness and listening to God's plan for them to share
"honestly" with others, without contempt for their lowly place
and genuine neediness. One needs to only look at the story of
Lazarus and the rich man to know how cruel the worldly and
corrupt folks of wealth treat their fellow brethren. But also…let
us not forget Annanias and Sapphirah whom were supposed
believers… who lied to their brothers and sisters, the Apostles
and above all, the Holy Spirit about their self-protecting and
devious plan!


THIS FULLY ADDRESSED THE SETTING THEN AND
ALSO RIGHT NOW IN THE ERA THAT THE CHURCH
IS IN!


When those who have substantial blessing and abundance start
turning to "selective" blindness when they see another family
member in the Body needing assistance to be sent into mission
locations to care for the devastated or to train a new emerging
generation into truth and instructed direction, and simply
continue to say things like; "God bless you, I will pray for you,
Be at peace!" …God does not Himself…turn a blind eye to
their darkened eye of soul.


HE SEES THE WICKED HEART OF THE LOVERS OF
"SELF PRESERVATION AND GRATIFICATION"


And


HE SEES AND HEARS THE HEART- CRY OF A
GENERATION AGONIZING TO BE RELEASED
AND SENT.


John 16:20
“I assure you, most seriously I tell you, that you shall weep and
grieve, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but
your sorrow will be turned into joy.”


TO BE CONCLUDED IN PART II

“WHEN ONLY GOD IS LOOKING- DO WHAT IS RIGHT”


by Mary Lindow


Are you in a place where you risk laying down what might cost you your past history and which will create a new and fresh beginning in the walk of the
saint on earth?

ARE YOU LONGING FOR REFRESHING FROM THE HEART OF GOD THE FATHER?


Sadly, many choose to return to the safe place of familiarity and control
to gain perspective, and lose the joy set before them.


THE FATHER IS WATCHING THOSE WHO ARE NOT CREATING AGENDAS
AND PROGRAMS TO ATTEMPT TO HAVE AN "EDGE" DURING THIS LONG
SEASON OF TRANSITION FROM SOWING TO HARVESTING.


He is allowing the breaking and "coming to the end of ones' self" to
continue. Few have stepped over the line into the abandonment He desires
from those who claim that their lives are for His use.


IN THIS CRUCIAL HOUR
Yes… Right now even as you read and contemplate, the Lord is not
requiring acts of greatness and profound gatherings to bring glory to His
plans.The Lord Jesus says these words to those who will choose hear:
"THE SACRIFICE I WANT IS A BROKEN SPIRIT.
A BROKEN AND REPENTANT HEART,
THIS MY BRIDE, I WILL NOT DESPISE.
(PSALM 51:17)


WHAT IS IT THAT JESUS THAT JESUS WANTS FROM US-REALLY?
The obedience to do the simple, and often at times, mundane acts of
“silencing our fleshly need for action and comfort."


JESUS REQUIRES THOSE WHO WOULD BE HIS FOLLOWERS TO A RADICAL
DEVOTION AND AN EVEN MORE RADICAL DEPENDENCE ON GOD.


His followers must be meek,(this does not mean weak)
Must not retaliate,
Must go beyond the Word of God’s “rules and regulations”
And instead, understand its spirit.
They must do what is right when only God is looking,
Must depend on God for their needs,
And pursue His interests rather than their own.


HIS DEVOTED FOLLOWERS MUST LEAVE SPIRITUAL MEASUREMENTS
OF OTHERS' HEARTS AND ACTIONS, “SEEMINGLY GOOD OR BAD”
- TO GOD.


In short, true people of the kingdom live for God, not for themselves.


"ARE YOU IN AN “UNCOMFORTABLE” SEASON BECAUSE
YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WALK THE NARROW PATH?


But small is the gate
and narrow the path that leads to life,
And only a few find it.
Matthew 7:14


THIS IS THE AGONY THAT TURNS INTO A GODLY DELIGHT!
When we fully realize that only God the Father can be the full and well
trusted Redeemer and Rescuer in all of our life situations right now!


So Fear not!
He is dealing with the hearts of those who still cling to hidden control over
their brothers and sisters.


HE IS SEARCHING EACH HEART WHO CALLS HIM LORD!
He is allowing a spiritual discontentment and a holy frustration to stir up
all unsatisfied and unfulfilled hearts until they begin to wail out loud,
How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
Psalm 13:1


THE LORD IS TRAINING US!
And if you wonder why there is such a limited level of joy and rest in your
heart, it is because until you have a heart that is broken and repentant for
assuming you are allowed to call the shots in your decision making in this
life He will not expose you to His full measure of Glory!


Psalm 19:13 (CEV)
Don't let me do wrong on purpose, Lord,
Or let sin have control over my life.
Then I will be innocent, and not guilty of some terrible fault.


IT IS TRUE THAT THE KINGDOM IS AVAILABLE TO US ONLY
BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH


But! Genuine faith means genuinely embracing and yielding to God's reign
not simply acknowledging it and then passing it by as if it did not exist.


The kingdom is a treasure, and those who really believe it
will sacrifice everything else in their lives for its agendas.


Professed Christians who crave worldly wealth and position but are not
nearly as excited and consumed with the advancing of God's kingdom,
really need to take a brutal and laser piercing look at the true state of their
souls.


When we preach that people who simply “pray a prayer” will automatically
be saved from hell regardless of whether they truly commit their lives to
Christ and commit to trust that He is saving them from sin (from
selfishness, from going their way instead of his), we preach a message
other than the one our Lord has taught us.


2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this
inscription:"The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who
confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."


Romans 10:9 (CEV
So you will be saved, if you honestly say,
"Jesus is Lord," and if you believe with all your heart
that God raised him from death.

ONCE WE OBEY…HE WILL RETURN WITH HIS FRESH AND SWEET JOY!


Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me—
Now let me rejoice.
Psalm 51:8


IT IS AN INTENSE STRUGGLE TO CHOOSE TO BE EXPOSED BEFORE GOD!
But the delight of allowing nothing of the soul to influence your decisions
when the Lord speaks and gives command far outweighs this present
suffering between spirit and flesh!


If you put yourself above others, you will be put down.
But if you humble yourself, you will be honored.
Matthew 23:12 (CEV)


MANY WHO ARE NOW HIDDEN AND YES, BEAT DOWN, TESTED, RIDICULED
AND SEEMINGLY FORGOTTEN, WILL SHORTLY PASS THROUGH THE OPEN DOORSOF FRESH OPPORTUNITIES…


…AND PATHWAYS OF TRUTH WILL LEAD THEM.


He makes me strong again.
He leads me in the way of living right with Himself
Which brings honor to His name.
Psalm 23:3 (NLV)


THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SLOWLY ARISING FROM THE HIDDEN PLACE
WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO GROW IN WISDOM,
UNDERSTANDING, AND DYING TO SELF-LOVE…
…STAY THE COURSE!


”We are pressed on every side by troubles,
But we are not crushed and broken.
We are perplexed,
But we don't give up and quit.”
(2 Corinthians) 4:8


HE HIMSELF WILL BIND UP EVERYTHING BROKEN IN YOUR HEART,
YOUR DREAMS,AND YOUR REPUTATION, WITH HIS OWN HAND,
AND HE WILL RESTORE YOUR JOY!


He heals the brokenhearted,
Binding up their wounds.
Psalm 147:3

" MEPHIBOSHETH – A PROMISE FOR THE
DISPLACED AND BROKEN HEARTED"
By Mary Lindow


2 Samuel 9 vs 11b-13
“Mephibosheth ate at David's table as one of the king's sons.


Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, for he ate endlessly at the
king's table, even though he was crippled in both feet.”


Ephesians 5: 25b 32


“Just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to
make her holy and completed, to perfect her by the washing
with water through the word, and to establish her to himself as
an exultant church, without imperfection or wrinkle or any other
defect, but holy and guiltless.


After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and
cares for it, just as Christ does the church-- 30 for we are
members of his body.”


This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the
church.”


MEPHIBOSHETH:
MEANING ONE WHO SUFFERS SHAME


The name was a joining by two members of the family of Saul -
his son and his grandson. Let's look at this man Mephibosheth.
His life is a picture of a life of disaster, disappointment, and
anxiety. You think you have troubles?


In reading the story we already know that Mephibosheth is
motherless and fatherless, because he is under the care of a
nurse.


2 Samuel 4:4 also says that at the age of five his father,
Jonathan, David's best friend, was killed in battle along with
Jonathan's father, King Saul. To add injury to insult, we are told
that when Mephibosheth's nurse heard the news of the murder
of Jonathan and Saul, she panicked as she ran from harm's
way. And in her running, the nurse dropped the child - causing
him to become crippled. So the baby prince who was in the line
of succession to the throne became a crippled beggar living as
an orphan in hiding. What should have been a life of wealth
became a life of misery, tragedy and heartbreak.


While his family was being assassinated, murdered, and
banished, his future, as a king would never be fulfilled.


AND MORE THAN THAT,
MEPHIBOSHETH WAS PERMANENTLY SCARRED


We can relate to Mephibosheth's being a victim of sad
circumstance. Perhaps you can even testify to being victimized
by other's mistakes for yourself. Like Mephibosheth who trusted
his nurse, some of us can relate to being dropped by those in
whom we've placed our trust. We're living crippled lives because
a person in whom we loved and gave our hearts to...has
dropped us.


JUST LIKE MEPHIBOSHETH WE KNOW WHAT IT FEELS
LIKE TO BE DROPPED BY SOMEONE OR SOMETHING…
…THAT WE'VE TRUSTED.


Our lives are still suffering from the crippling effects of those
disappointments. Everyone has been "dropped" in some way.
And if you haven't, you will be. Some are still so proud in heart
that they never admit to any weakness and therefore shame
those around them who stumble their way to cross of
redemption. It's no wonder that we are afraid to trust again
because we've been lied to or used as scapegoats for the
escape of others who hide their sins and egos behind loud
opinions about how others should behave or...might have done
better in the way they have handled the things that have
happened in their life's journey!


MANY ARE AFRAID TO TAKE CHANCES
BECAUSE OF PAST FAILURES.


Many more are afraid to follow their heart because the plain idea
of making one more mistake sends shivers through them. We
can't handle another anguish. Sometimes it feels as though we
are hanging on by a fine thread. If God is a merciful God, we
wonder when we're going to start seeing the mercy. Our words
echo the psalmist as our soul cries out, "Lord, have mercy on
me!" "Have mercy on me, Lord"


BUT THE THING IS, THERE IS MERCY...
...IF YOU WILL SEE IT.


If you will allow that mercy to saturate your soul. If you'll see that
you have an important role to play in that mercy. In fact, "mercy"
is really the only reason that you and I are existing today,
whether you know that or not. You are here today because at
some level - consciously or subconsciously - you know that God
has been and is merciful to you and you are expressing your
appreciation for that mercy. You are here today because you
know that despite the hurts that have been inflicted upon you,
you want to trust, you want to go on, and you want to find hope.


THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE IS BOTH A BIT OF
MEPHIBOSHETH AND…
…A BIT OF KING DAVID IN ALL OF US.


And perhaps… a bit of King Saul's fear of the loss of power,
position, and need for control and honor. That is, we have been
hurt, but we have also been healed. We have been helped, and
we also have opportunity to help others. We really have
received mercy, and we can offer mercy as well.


WHEN MEPHIBOSHETH WAS CALLED INTO DAVID'S
PRESENCE, HE WAS TERRIFIED!


Why shouldn't he be? As the grandson of dead King Saul,
Mephibosheth was an heir to the throne that David now
possessed. So his first thought was that the king would kill him
because he might see him as a threat. Secondly, Mephibosheth
has experienced little in his life that would make him believe that
something good could happen to him, so he expected injury. His
own words were, "What is your servant that you should look on
a dead dog such as I?" Then King David sent and brought him
out of the house: Mephibosheth must have been terrified when
messengers from David knocked at his door and demanded that
he come with them to see the king. In the back of his mind he
must have constantly anticipated the day when David would do
as other kings did and murder every possible enemy to his
throne.


UP TO THIS POINT MEPHIBOSHETH AND DAVID NEVER
HAD A RELATIONSHIP AND IT WAS BECAUSE
MEPHIBOSHETH WANTED IT THAT WAY.


HE AVOIDED DAVID OUT OF UNFOUNDED FEARS.
BUT DAVID REMOVES THE FEARS OF MEPHIBOSHETH.

Verses (7-8)
So David said to him, "Do not fear, for I will surely show you
kindness for Jonathan your father's sake, and will restore to you
all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at
my table continually."


Then Mephibosheth bowed himself, and said, "What is your
servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”


Mephibosheth didn't feel worthy of such generosity. He
considered himself a dead dog, meaning a worthless and
insignificant person.


All the years of hiding from the king and Living in fear and
poverty made Mephibosheth thinks of himself as Worthless.


THE OFFER OF MERCY
David didn't want to add to Mephibosheth's Misery.
David offered mercy.


Mephibosheth - in his amazement and skepticism - is restored.
No, he didn't retrieve the ability to walk.
Mephibosheth's weakness did not vanish. The end of the
scripture is clear about that. "He was crippled in both feet." But
he was given a place at the table of the king. This goes far
beyond giving Mephibosheth what was rightly his.


THE HONOR OF A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE KING
David gave Mephibosheth the honor of a close relationship with
the king. The miserable, unfair, undeserved events of his past
didn't change. But he was re-established within the kingdom and
given an opportunity to live out the rest of his life with dignity.
Because David - the King - was merciful.


DAVID KNOWS THAT HE HAS BEEN AN OBJECT OF GOD'S
MERCY IN HIS LIFE.


That he has already been delivered from extreme circumstances
and from ...his own unpredictable behavior.

David is merciful, because he has received mercy - a melody that
will continue throughout David's entire life, even when David
didn't deserve mercy. And - on another level - David knows that,
as he acts as the status of king - also by God's anointing, and
not his own skill - that he must model the mercy of God within
the kingdom.


BLEMISHES OF THE "CRIPPLED" BRIDE
Just like in Ephesians 5 were the blemishes of the "crippled"
bride...she is much like Mephibosheth. Hiding, fearful! And....the
King of our souls, Jesus...restores and cleanses us...brings us
to His table as His Bride and covers our lameness, our
disfigurement underneath the linens of the bridegroom's table
where no one dare point out our imperfections. We are
perfected BY His Mercy! David knew that human beings and a
society that exist without forgiveness and mercy are already
doomed to self-destruction by their bitter doubt.


JESUS DIED FOR THIS VERY REASON.
SO THAT WE MIGHT MODEL HIS KIND OF GUTSY
FORGIVENESS AND MERCY.


AND SO THE STORY FALLS TO US AS EMERGING
LEADERS IN THE KING'S KINGDOM!


We who are like Mephibosheth who have been injured by
dreadful circumstances and by careless people; and we who are
like David, have the opportunity to be instruments of mercy.


We who are like Mephibosheth and David who have received
mercy; and we who must decide if we will live lives of
resentment because of prejudiced facts or ...live lives of gratitude
because of undeserved and unexpected mercy.
The story falls now to us.


BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE.
AS WE HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED,
WE HAVE ALSO BEEN DELIVERED.

Remember, David - the King - had to decide if his kingdom would
be one of dread or grace. David had to decide if his realm was
going to be established on grounds of vengeance or the
refinement of mercy. In being an instrument of grace, David is setting
the stage for his great, great, great grandson Jesus, who will be
the ultimate expression of mercy to all of us. In the entire history
of humanity no one was more misunderstood or viciously
abused than David's ultimate successor, Jesus.


Yet no person was ever more merciful.


AS HEIRS OF DAVID AND CHRIST IT IS NOW UP TO US TO
PUT INTO PRACTICE THE VERY TREASURE THAT DAVID
HONORED IN THIS STORY.


Loyalty, respect, unwavering love, and the well being of others.
Like David did for Mephibosheth, God has honored and blessed
us with the promise of eternal life, inviting us to dine at His table
in His kingdom eternally. Also, God does this, not because of
any goodness upon our part, but "because of Jesus."


THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY …
AND WHY WE ARE PART OF THE BRIDE OF JESUS CHRIST.


WE ARE HERE BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN BROKEN.


And because He has restored - and is restoring - US by His
mercy, He invites us to His table, we MUST look around to see
who else needs a place at the table, on His behalf! Not out of
our great "earned reputations" or past accomplishments!


No!
We as models of the Fatherly and Motherly compassion of a
heavenly King invite others, to the table of "covering" and honor.
We bring mercy, expressed with "tender hearts." The best
person to want to be like is not always the strongest or the best
looking!! When we become like Mephibosheth, we can truly
understand mercy and grace.


BEING LIKE MEPHIBOSHETH MEANS:


1. Realizing that the king sought me out.
2. Understanding what I deserved from the king.
3. Acknowledging the ones who brought me to the king.
4. Humbling myself in the sight of the king.
5. Rejoicing in the words of the king.
6. Accepting the provision of the king.
7. Adjusting my life to the requests of the king.


Psalm 51:12
Restore to me again the joy of your salvation,
And make me willing to obey you.

“DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS”-A PROPHETIC WORD

Dear Global Family in Christ,

I was impressed strongly by the Lord to share this word again

with you. Yesterday, I traveled to Antonio Texas to minister there.
As we pulled out of the pick up zone from the airport, my eyes were
drawn to a HUGE banner on a construction wall nearby.
The words on the banner read;

“DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!”

Shortly after that, I knew it was confirmation for me to share this word
from the Lord for the state of Texas yet again.

What I share in this prophetic word could apply to many other
locations in the World as well, but at this time, the Lord would
have this word be a direct insight for the People of Faithfulness
in that location.

There is much travail occurring in the heart of many hidden
intercessors in Texas as they pray for continued moves of
God globally

. In His Shadow,
Mary Lindow
www.marylindow.com
www.globalprayerrooms.com

“DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS” - A PROPHETIC WORD
By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow

FOR MANY MONTHS THE LORD HAS BEEN SPEAKING TO ME
ABOUT THE STATE OF TEXAS.
Often I would wake up in the morning singing a verse of a famous
cultural song from that state.

“The Stars at night
Are big and Bight!
Deep in the Heart of Texas!”

The Lord began to speak about what is “DEEP” in His heart
regarding the State of Texas.”

He impressed me with the many people I have had relationship
with in that State.

The kindness, the hospitality, and the graciousness that is so
often mentioned when people describe “Southern Hospitality.”

But it is more than that to the Lord.
The King of Heaven would speak the following words to the
believers in Texas.

BORDERS AND BOUNDARIES

The focus in these days ahead of you will be a political playing
card regarding the southern borders of Texas and Mexico.
And, although many have opinions and strong feeling regarding
immigration and border patrols, I the Lord have a Higher thought
and Divine Way of dealing with man’s ideas and concepts.

Isaiah 55:8

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
Neither are your ways my ways,"
Declares the LORD.

I have a ways of shedding light on the deceptive ways of man
and can expose the most secret of agendas. In order for you to
have safety about your borders, you must first have hearts of
integrity in dealing with others.

A CALL TO BUILD A WALL - IN PRAYER!

The Lord impressed me with the words
: “ A wall built by man or a wall built by Prayer?”

If My people view men as their enemies and attempt with natural
means to keep evil men and their trades and wares from crossing
the borders, then they will continually be battling against a breach in
the man made walls made to attempt to repel intruders.

Your enemy is a spiritual stronghold allowed access because the
prayer walls of the saints have been neglected says the Lord.

BRING BACK THE GLORY!

The Father in Heaven declares to the Christian believers in Texas
that it is now in their hands to begin the offensive against those
evil spirits assigned to tear down the borders of safety, the freedom
of Christian heritage, and attacks against the rich resources in
the land.

When there is a roar from those who choose to lift their heads in
prayer, in fervent prayer and intercession, instead of the hanging
down of the head and ignoring the call to intercession, then you
will see my Glory rise like a shield around you. I will spoil the
plans of evildoers and those intent on destruction and chaos.

RETURN TO YOUR PRAYER WATCHES

. Return to fasting and seeking of My heart and you will watch as
I keep My promise to Shield you with Yy Glory. Let the Gatekeepers
of the state, those called to pray for what may and may not cross the
boundaries of your state, rise up in the true fear of God.

Sober yourselves and allow my Spirit to give you strategies that
will bind the strongman.

Stop all competition and religious posturing saints!
I am calling you to lift up the gates of prayer and My Glory will be
your shield.

Psalm 24:9
Lift up your heads,
O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.

Psalm 85:9
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
that his glory may dwell in our land.

GENEROUS AND BIG HEARTED

Due to the faithful and generous hearts of many Texans,
the Lord will repay in measure to those with the true heartfelt
compassion shown and expressed to the destitute and
disenfranchised.

The Lord has seen the abundance of giving and caring for those
that are orphans and others who have had great loss.

“I the Lord of loving, remind you that even if there are those
among you that have not fairly entered your land, you are to not
take advantage of them in the workplace. You are to treat them
Fairly as you would any other man. My Mercy endures forever and
must be an attribute of the example of My life expressed through yours.

Deuteronomy 24:14-15
“Do not take advantage of a hired man, who is poor and needy
Whether he is a brother Israelite or an alien living in one of
your towns.
Pay him his wages each day before sunset, because he is poor
and is counting on it. Otherwise he may cry to the LORD against you
and you will be guilty of sin.”

NEW HIDDEN TREASURES AND NATURAL RESOURCES

The Spirit of God is starting to reveal more hidden natural resources
and will reveal brilliant new technologies within the Marketplaces of
humble Men and Women of God.

Many of the defunct and rusted away Oil research venues will
be reopened due to new surprising technologies that have been
developing in the hearts and hands of men of God who have passed
though long and fiery seasons of tempering and refocusing of values.

Even the surrounding coastal areas on the Gulf will begin to spring
up with surprising water technologies that will stun industry moguls.
This will be a sign of the Providence of God for your land.

I The Lord will continue to expose the drug traders and attempts of
terrorist plotting on your coastal shores as you raise up a wall of
worship and intercession in My name.

I shall keep you safe as you join in rebuilding the walls of Prayer.
BUT!
This must be done in humility. Any positioning or posturing will only
prolong the work I long to do among you. Repentance from dead
works, pride, smugness, and spiritual elitism will bring my Presence
Back into your places of influence and service.

Psalm 78:53
He guided them safely, so they were unafraid;
but the sea engulfed their enemies.

REFRESHING THE HEART OF TEXAS

I the Lord of everlasting Joy have a move of great Glory and great
proportions hovering within the wings of My Divine Plan.

Those who have waited humbly and faithfully to see a transformation
and a restoring of honoring the Freedom of my Spirit to flow in
gatherings held among Believers, will begin to see me “interrupt”
man’s well planned service structures.

My Spirit will visit in sudden and sweeping waves of holiness
and peace. Weeping will be a commonplace event as saints find
themselves gently driven to their knees in adoration, repentance,
and hunger.

Adoration- of the Presence of My Holy Spirit,
Repentance - for resisting His Movement and freedom to have liberty.
Hunger - A rekindling of the Spiritual appetite for extended times of
worship and praise mixed with Intercession for cities, States,
and leaders of Nations!

At times there will be what would be called “wonders and signs”
in the heavens. This may well be he release of rain in your drought
stricken condition.

Again I will visit you with visible manifestations of My Presence.
Some will hear angelic voices singing of My Holiness. Some will see
visions of My Presence. Many will again hear the call to Go into all
the World.

And again, Texas will be known for its missionary heart to the World.”

Psalm 86:9
All the nations you have made will come and worship before you,
O Lord; They will bring glory to your name.

FINDING THE FAITHFUL- “ELEGANT SIMPLICITY”

By Mary Lindow

There is no way to explain or express the absolute joy of ministering in a place where
the presence of the Holy Spirit is allowed full access and expression among those
who are attending.


Less than a week ago I had the delight and honor to be in such a place.
Mind you, I have been there before and have built loving relationships with
many in this location.


A NEW CAST OF COLOR, A FRESH EXPRESSION
As we see the Lord changing the canvas and broadening the expression of His
kingdom, things have begun to take on a new cast of color, a fresh expression,
a purity that only those who have done the things that He has requested in their
personal lives understand.

A TRUE DAVID’S HEART IN WORSHIP
In this place where I recently visited, there is what I would call the expression of a
true David’s heart in worship. Every individual involved in creating an atmosphere
for the presence of God to inhabit was fully engaged in honoring and bringing joy to
the heart of the Father. Privately and Personally, Corporately and Individually.

David and the whole house were celebrating with all their might before the LORD,
with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, sistrums and cymbals.
2 Samuel 6:5

There was no flashy presentation, no low cut blouses, no “grooviness” or need to
ramp up the crowd. Oh no! The hearts were ready for full personal involvement with
honoring and adoring the “One”.

Yes. There had probably been untold hours of rehearsing and practicing each chord,
each note, each song. But it had been done with joy, and deep reverence for the
responsibility each held in bringing the body into a place of being escorted into the
presence of the King of glory.

So often, it is a let down to see the large performance and the flashiness of
attempting to impress and incite people to wake up and worship. And I mean
literally attempting to get people to “themselves” step into a place of deep
personal relationship with the Master.


“ELEGANT SIMPLICITY”
Some may think that the location of where I was might not be as nearly impressive
and highly tailored as one might assume, in order to attract and draw individuals into
such a glorious and mighty experience. But you see, that was the beauty of this
whole gathering. It was Elegant Simplicity.

The adornment was the humility and reverence of the Father, Son and Spirit.
As the Lord moved in with His Presence and Plan, little children were spontaneously
filled with the spirit and spoke out unafraid in their prayer language from heaven
. Young adults and teens were boldly risking out loud, calling on God to reveal
himself to them personally, and He did. Words of Knowledge and words of
Wisdom flowed with clarity and honor, with loving warnings and also with
validation and confirmation. Many openly repented of shutting out the voice of
God, and asked again for “fresh ears to hear.”

The young couples attending were drawn into a deeper commitment to mentor
young sheep in the flock they are a part of, and many of these couples asked
the Father to deepen their commitment to prayer with each other.

Prodigals came to an additional service that was unplanned and spontaneous.
And again, Father met them face to face, After all, He had been waiting,
patiently on the road, watching for their return.

A GENTLE AND UNFETTERED “LIFTING OF THE SAILS”
I have seen in the past few weeks, a gentle and unfettered “lifting of the sails”
in many people’s lives that have been struggling, suffering and agonizing.
It is as if Father has said to them (and maybe you too!).”Lift up your sails again.
Tattered or not, lift them!!
Look again for the stirring of My winds and My Holy Spirit! You cannot attempt to
capture or direct this wind or you will utterly be left stalled out. Throw out the oars
of control into the waters and let Me blow you into a fresh direction.
A course yet uncharted by you or others.”

“The wind blows wherever it pleases.
You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from
or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
John 3:8

FRESH AND PASSIONATE SONGS OF WORSHIP BLOSSOMING
I have heard fresh and passionate songs of worship blossoming from many
worship servants lately. These have gorgeous and haunting melodies and words
that break stony hearts and bring repentance to those caught up in
driven performance. These melodies are the songs of the Kingdom. Rich, warm,
tasty to the soul, and food to the spirit.

YES!
THE “HARP” OF DAVID IS SOOTHING AND SINGING AGAIN IN THE EARTH.
Although the Saul spirit is still alive and well, and attempts to shame, discredit,
and mock, it shall not prevail. The Lord has called forth His Pure hearted ones from
every tribe, every tongue and nation, every age and generation. The sound is
one of Purity, Simplicity, Perseverance and honor among saints.

But an evil spirit (allowed by the Lord, due to Saul’s pride) came upon Saul as he
was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand.
While David was playing the harp.
1 Samuel 19:9

DO YOU HEAR IT TOO? DO YOU WANT THIS DIVINE BLISS?
There is a lighthouse in the wilderness in the southern part of Texas called
Markham Texas. Coffee is always ready, worship is continuously flowing,
discipleship is constant, and mentors are plentiful.

And…
…Forgiveness…reigns.

From Infants to Grandparents there was a wonderful mixture of life, organized chaos,
and abundant sharing. It was a joy, a gift, a treasure, to minister among these dear
ones all of last week.

Perhaps you too might want to visit and bask in this place of love a day or two?

If so… here is an email address to contact them.

No agendas allowed when you enter the doors. Only hungry and humble hearts
last in this place of God’s Oasis.. This Glorious Wilderness Place.

"Watch out for false prophets
. They come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
Matthew 7:15
