When times of trouble come, what is in one’s heart is made known for all to see. Under stress or upset, if peace comes out of your heart you can know your heart has been transformed. If vitriol, blaming, complaining, condemnation, criticism, anger, hatred, or prejudices come out, you can know that you still have a “heart of this world” as in Jeremiah 17:9-10. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately corrupt; who can understand it? I the LORD search the mind and try the heart, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings” Jeremiah 17:9-10
But you can also know if the Spirit of Christ is truly IN YOUR HEART if the fruit of Christ comes out in times of stress! The Fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, joy, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience, self-control and faithfulness! When provoked, the heart will show you what is in it: darkness or light; who is in it: unclean spirits or Holy Spirit; and whose you are: you know you are God’s beloved or you do not know God through Christ in you or you think you know God but have not enthroned him on your heart.
Those who have given their soul to God and received Christ’s heart, mind and will in exchange, live in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit: the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven! Those who have not are still under the influence of the father of lies, eating the fruit of lies, deceived, vulnerable to sorcery, mind control, consensus trance, the hive mind; the blind flock who are preyed on by the roaming lions and wolves who prey on the innocent, shed innocent blood, wound, hurt, rob, destroy or kill them (Ezekiel ch 22). Those who are incited to violence, riot, destroy property or lives are under the influence of the evil one, or they are paid disrupters, protesters, rioters to incite violence and agitate crowds. Their goal is to budge or nudge public opinion to their dark agenda. This must be seen for what it is: not of God and his gentle, humble, powerful Lamb, the Son, the Messiah, the Christ appointed by God for ALL human beings with NO PARTIALITY to race, gender or religion. God looks at the heart and his justice is RIGHTEOUS.
God calls us all UP HIGHER to his higher purpose and destiny for America, Americans and all those on earth who wake up and are set FREE by the Way, Truth and Life and of Christ in you!
“AWAKE, O sleeper, and ARISE from the dead and Christ will give you LIGHT!”
I woke up on 11/11 at 1:11 am! This is a day for new beginnings, new life, a new dawn of the true Light, the real morning star rising in your heart: Christ in you, the real, true, powerful hope of glory! The counterfeit light of lucifer being fed to the masses leads to destruction and is being played out in the aftermath of this election. There is a spiritual battle raging to keep human beings asleep, ignorant, deceived, fooled, worn down and taken in by the counterfeit light, darkness disguising itself as light. If you conform to this world your heart will not be transformed or your mind made new in the image and likeness of Christ; to be conformed to the likeness of Christ is to be SET FREE.
“Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge…I have no good apart from you…all my delight is in you. Those who choose other gods multiply their sorrows…I bless the LORD who gives me Counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me….the LORD is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore MY HEART IS GLAD, and my soul REJOICES; my BODY ALSO DWELLS SECURE…You show me the path of life; in thy presence there is FULLNESS OF JOY, in thy right hand are PLEASURES FOREVERMORE” Psalm 16
When you are poked or provoked, what comes out? We can’t know what is in our heart until we are stressed or upset. Does a river of peace come out or a river of turmoil and trouble? These lyrics played in me this morning: “There will be peace in the valley for me”and when I looked it up I found this:
Well, I’m tired and so weary
But I must go alone
Till the lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh yes
And the morning’s so bright
And the lamb is alight
And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh yes
(There will be peace in the valley for me some day)
There will be peace in the valley for me, dear Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me
Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolf will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes
And the beasts from the wild
Will be lead by a child
And I’ll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh yes
(Johnny Cash – (There’ll Be) Peace In The Valley (For Me) (Album Version) Lyrics | MetroLyrics)
There is a battle between darkness and light right now in the this world, but there is great HOPE for humanity in Christ, Christ in you! Isaiah 11:1-9 describes the higher potential and possibilities we are now offered if we will just TURN from the conditioning and programming of the world, being told what to think and how to feel, and enter his Peaceful Kingdom which is a spiritual kingdom, therefore no time nor space. It is available NOW and is to come! Peace! Be still! Come! The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!”
Jesus says, “In the world you will have tribulation, but in ME you will have PEACE!”
