Step out of the boat.

Dear Saints,

I wish to share with you all something that the Lord has been impressing upon my heart lately.

As we all should know by now, God’s judgments are about to be poured out as they have already begun in some ways. Although, in His mercy, He has withheld much of His judgments to give people more time to repent.   However, I strongly feel that His judgments and shakings are about to dramatically increase.  I cannot say exactly when or what, but I do feel that we will see these things begin to unfold this year and increase each subsequent year.  And in this, great changes are coming.

Nevertheless, even in the midst of tremendous shakings and judgments, God will be doing a great work within those who have been seeking Him with a whole heart.  I feel that many changes for the good are coming to those who truly love the Lord and are seeking His righteousness and kingdom.

However, sometimes these changes for the better requires us to forsake what is familiar, comfortable and convenient.  “Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19

God may be wanting to provide someone with a new business, but cannot unless that one will leave their job which has been their resource of income for many years.  Or, He may want to move someone to another city that will be safe during the times of shakings and adversity, but cannot if that one refuses to leave their home which they dearly love.

Now of course, we are NOT to do ANYTHING based on presumption.  However, if we do like Peter and say; “Lord, if that is you, bid me to you on the water”, and Jesus says “Come”, then we can align our faith and obedience and step out of the boat (what is familiar, comfortable and/or convenient) and walk on the water so-to-speak to Jesus.  And, of course stepping out of the boat may try our faith.  Though when it does, just call out to Jesus if you begin to sink in doubt and He will pick you up. (Matthew 14:28-32).  Howbeit, the main thing to remember is to first call out to Jesus ( regarding the new thing) and ask that if it is truly Him, then bid you to come (tell you if the new thing is of Him).  If we have assurance that He has shown us His will, then we can boldly step out of our boats in faith.

God has many good things in store for those who have chosen to forsake all for Him and His kingdom in these last days.  But we need to have an ear to hear when He is saying to step out of the boat and come unto Him.  If we instead choose to stay in the boat (what is familiar, comfortable and/or convenient), then we will miss what He has for us.

The Lord may be wanting to use you in giftings which you have never operated in before.  But you must step out in faith and act on those giftings.  And as you do, He will carry you.  Whatever it is the Lord may have for you, it will need you’re stepping out in faith to the unfamiliar.  “By faith Abraham, being called, hearkened to go out into the place which he should afterwards receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he went.”  Hebrews 11:8

We have entered into exciting days when the true church will be the light of the world and do many great exploits in times of great darkness and despair.  Though we all need to step out in faith into this new era.

So, I encourage you all to seek the Lord and be ready and willing to step out of your boat if the Lord bids you to.

I pray that this word blesses and encourages you all.

Your brother in Christ,

Kevin B.

Be encouraged, for things are about to change.

Dear Saints,

I have felt in my spirit for some time that we have entered into a season wherein things are about to change for many regarding their walk with the Lord.  Many of us have been going through our wilderness of dry places and harsh circumstances.  However, lately I have felt that Isaiah 43:19 is a “NOW” word; “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”

As a confirmation to this, my pastor/spiritual father and dear friend recently received a word from the Lord for the body of Christ that I wish to share.  I pray that it blesses you all as it did me.

PROPHETIC WORD from Pastors Mark and Julie Moore @ Revival Fire Church:

My child……do not fear…I see your heart…I know the things that buffet you…be encouraged, for things are about to change for you. Know that I love you with an everlasting love…it is that love that brings this message to you this day. For I have seen the torment…I have seen the let-downs that you have experienced…I have seen it all. I know the feeling of betrayal, My child…I know it well…for I experienced it long before you have, so be of good cheer…for you are partaking of My sufferings…know that you will also be glorified together, in Me. For I am sending a shaking to you…a shaking that will begin to resonate into your entire being…this shaking will cause a vibration within you & you will know it.

For this shaking is a new wave of My Spirit, as I come to you…for I am coming for those who are Mine…to encourage them & to re-new them. I know that the battle has been long & hard, but do not give up…for what is coming to you will be well worth all that you have gone through. For even as you read through these words of Mine, you will even now begin to sense what I am bringing…for a shaking will begin to arise in you & it will push you to a higher realm in Me. For I have long waited for this time to come…& now you will receive that which I have prepared for you. Just hold on & let Me do what needs to be done, for that is what has been going on all of this time…I have been making you ready.

For you could not receive that which I have for you, as you have been…there was too much that was in the way…but as you have come through these many times of struggles…these many times of battles, you may not realize it now, but I have been doing a work down deep, far below your emotions & feelings. For you look at what you have been going through & see things one way & think that nothing has changed & things will always be this way…but I assure you that this is not the case…for the things that you have seen are temporal…the things I am doing are eternal. Those things as you have seen them, will soon pass away & that which I am doing deep within will arise & take their place in you.

The shaking of My Spirit will take hold of you & you will begin to feel Me surge deep within. Do not be surprised, for My working in you may even interfere with your sleep, as My love takes you to another level. Just receive what I am doing…receive what I have for you…for you have waited a long time for this…know that the wait is well worth it. Does this mean that those things that you have wrestled with will be removed from you…does this mean that the struggles you have borne will be no more? Yes & no…yes, they will be removed from you, as you will ascend to the level that I desire you to be…but no, those struggles will not be no more. You will understand this as I open your heart to Me.

For I have said as long as you are in the world, you will have tribulation, but to be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. Do you know what I just said? I said that I have overcome the world…that did not mean that I was removed from the world…that meant that I overcame the world. Even so, My child…you too will overcome the world. For I have said that by much tribulation you must enter the kingdom of God. So, you see, it is the tribulation that causes you to enter the kingdom & many cannot conceive how this can be or why I would say it. But understand this…no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous…this part is what My people mostly focus on in their lives.

They forget the rest of that word, that…nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised by the chastening. Does this mean that you are being punished? No! For this “word” speaks much more than just correction…it also involves education, teaching & nurturing & that is what I use to work down deep within those who are Mine. For I am bringing My people to the place that I have ordained them to be…& it is from this place that they will begin to do exploits in the land…for they will no longer be focused on the temporal “grievous” part…but they will begin to walk in the peaceable fruit of righteousness, which I am raising up within My people this day.

For as My people will lay hold of what I am doing deep within & stop being distracted by what is going on, on the “outside”…they will begin to stand in that place that I speak of…that place that I have prepared for them…that place where I am. For when My people will arrive there, that is when I will appear to them…for then they will be like Me, for they will see Me as I am. They will no longer see themselves & what they are going through in life…their focus & life will be on that which is eternal & nothing on Earth will be able to stop them, for they are no longer seated in the world…but are in Heavenly places, in Me. This is what lies ahead for you, My child…this is what I have been preparing you for.

For in the weeks & months ahead, you will begin to notice an even greater shift in the way things are…that which was just felt as a tinge before, will become more pronounced & prominent. My people will recognize this greatly in their lives & also in the things around them & their attentions will be shifted to what I am doing. This is a great time to be alive, My child…this is a powerful day to be living! For My people shall arise & shine…for their light will finally be come within them. I want you to enter in to all of this, My child…I want every little bit to be yours…you must take hold of this word deeply & do your part…for then I can do Mine timely & things for you will be changed, says the Lord”.

END PROPHETIC WORD

 

I encourage you all to seek the Lord in your prayer closets and believe Him to make a way in your wilderness and take you to a higher level in Him.

Also, to all those who are able to give toward my needs, no matter the amount;  I thank you so much.  You don’t know how much your donations are appreciated and needed in this time in my life as the Lord has me to rely on what He provides through others until He provides through the home-based business which He has given me (which I believe will be soon).  I pray the Lord abundantly blesses those who are considerate in helping me with my needs. 

Much love to you all from your brother in Christ,

Kevin B.

We are to be holy as He is holy.

In my time with the Lord, He said these words to me: Son, tell my people to pray….

Word from the Lord:

My children; listen to what I would say to you this day.  I have great things in store for many of you.  Although, I have this to say; you MUST let go of your OWN preconceived notions of Me and My ways WHICH YOU HAVE ESTABLISHED IN YOUR HEARTS. You must make sure that what you believe truly lines up with My word, for I shall do a new thing in the earth, of which, if I were to tell you of it, you would not believe it except by revelation of My Spirit.

However, I do tell you this; many have believed on Me for My rewards, healings, promises, etc.  Yet, I tell you this day that it is My desire that you also believe on Me to make you sinless and perfect just as your heavenly Father is perfect.  Can you trust Me to do this work in you?

Oh, I know that for many of you this is hard to accept. Though have I not given you this promise in My word?  So then, lay down your preconceived notions that full salvation unto sinless perfection is impossible.  I tell you the truth; to only those who do not believe, shall this be impossible.  For I SHALL have a Bride who is spotless and without blemish.

Oh, no longer believe the false teachers and prophets who say that My Bride shall be spotless and without blemish merely because of My blood covering her sin.  For even though I am full of mercy and My blood DOES cleanse all repented and forgiven sin, this alone does not make My Bride sinless and perfect.  For as I have promised in My word, I shall remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh, and this heart of flesh shall be one with Me.  And in this, you shall be holy as I am holy.

Oh, My little ones, do not shrink back from this word.  For just as those who believed not that they could conquer the giants in their promised land, so you too shall not enter into these great promises of Mine if you believe not that you can conquer the giants within your own promised land.

Therefore, I say to you all this day; stretch forth your faith and receive of Me.  Receive My precious promises and seek them as the pearl of great price.  For it SHALL be a great price to accomplish this perfection.  And that price shall be all that is dear to your self-life including the self-will.  But know this, those who lose their lives for My sake and the sake of My gospel shall find this abundant life in Me for all eternity.  But whoever would seek to save their life, shall lose it.

I love you all, My dear ones.  So then, seek Me in this that I may reveal My truths to your hearts and give you each a vision and hope to overcome and live the perfect abundant life with Me in My kingdom.  For truly I say to you; nothing shall be taken away from those who live this abundant life.  But for those of the world, all shall be lost.

I love you all, so heed these words of Mine and seek Me in this.  Truly, you shall not be disappointed.

 

***Personal testimony regarding this word***

Dear Saints,

I understand that it may be difficult for many to believe that we can actually be sinless and perfect while still in our fleshly bodies.  It is difficult in believing this because of the doctrines of man that we all are accustomed to in some form.  Man teaches that we can never be sinless until we get to heaven.  But that is NOT what the word of God tells us.

The word DOES in fact speak of those who will receive the seed of God (the fullness of Christ) in themselves, and after that, they can no longer sin because they will have the nature of Christ.  “Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his nature remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” 1 John 3:9   “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them.” Ezekiel 36:26-27

However, this full salvation unto sinless perfection (the fullness of Christ (the incorruptible seed) and His nature birthed within us) will not come easily.  It will cost us everything as the pearl of great price.  As we continue to take up our cross and mortify the fleshly deeds of the body by the Spirit, our fleshly nature will suffer its death which is never pleasant. “Since therefore Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;” 1 Peter 4:1

I know that even with scriptures, this concept may still be hard for many to accept.  Therefore, I wish to share an event that happened in my life over 20 years ago, whereas, the Lord allowed me to taste full salvation.  I don’t mean that He gave me a vision or a dream, I literally mean that I tasted full salvation.

It was sometime around ’92’ or ‘93’ during a Sunday morning church service.  I was standing up worshiping the Lord during praise and worship, when, I suddenly was translated (for lack of a better term).  Instantly, I became holy, righteous and sinless.  And, I was no longer operating from my logical mind, instead, everything was by revelation.  Whatever I wanted to know, it came to me by revelation.

So, during this experience, I knew that I had been fully cleansed and made perfectly righteous, holy and all my sin had been separated from me.  In fact, I didn’t even have a consciousness of sin or doubt.  The only knowledge of sin that I had was the fact that all my sin had been separated from me as far as the east is from the west just as scripture declares. (Psalm 103:12).  However, I cannot put into words how glorious I felt.  The only thing that I can think of is what is quoted in Psalm 126:1; “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.”  What I experienced was SO glorious and wonderful that it was as though my entire life up unto that time had been a clouded dream and that I was finally awake in the fullness of my life in Christ.  Honestly, there is absolutely NOTHING in this earth which can compare to what I experienced.  The word of God is true when it declares; “…the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18)

Therefore, nobody can convince me that it’s impossible for us to become sinless and perfect while still in our fleshly bodies.  It’s a promise given to us in His word, and, the Lord had given me personally a taste of it which provides me with hope that will encourage me to continue the fight of faith unto the end and believe that full salvation from sin and the world is for us NOW; we don’t have to wait to die to experience this.

Howbeit, even with this personal testimony and scriptures to prove this is possible; there will still be those who refuse to believe. Thus, it will be just like in the days of old-testament times; many will die in their wilderness of sin while the Lord raises up a new (young) generation of undoctrinated believers who will have faith to go on into their promised land here on earth.  And, there will be a few of us in the company of Joshua and Caleb who will also go into our promised land with this new generation. My prayer is that those of you reading this will be of this company instead of with those who will die in their wilderness of sin.

Much love and blessings to you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your brother in Christ,

Kevin B.
