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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. 

...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 

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.... 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

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.  


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.


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.”
