Time to go deeper in God.

Greetings dear Saints,

If any of you are like me, you’re still going through hard trials and dry places even though we’ve entered a new season of breakthroughs.  Sometimes, it gets very difficult to keep holding on and having faith in God.

Even now as I write this, I have a heavy heart.  I’ve been fighting and praying lately for victory in a matter that God promised me victory in over 25 years ago.  Just a couple of months ago I began (in the natural realm) fighting this fight for victory because I know that it’s that season in which God will fulfill His promises to us that we have been waiting on for so long.

However, today I received discouraging news of a setback.  It hit me pretty hard and even shocked me for a short while because I was believing so much for victory.  However, even in the face of what seems like a defeat, I still can still feel deep within me something beginning to rise up and tell me that the fight is not over and there’s still hope.

The Lord’s Spirit in me won’t let me give up and tells me to keep fighting just a little while longer.  His ways are not our ways many times He needs to do something behind the scenes that we are not aware of, so to bring a greater victory that will glorify Him.

Also, I have another sensing in my spirit that something BIG is on the horizon.  I can sense a spiritual awakening coming to the body of Christ.  This is something even better than a revival.  Til this day the earth and all creating groans for the manifestation of the sons (and daughters) of God.  I can sense that a spiritual awakening of who we truly are in Christ is coming.  And I know the enemy greatly fears this because it will be the demise of his army of darkness.

For this reason, I believe that he’s working overtime to cause many of God’s people to give up hope just before their breakthroughs.  The coming breakthroughs many of us are waiting on will be the catalyst to many more breakthroughs down the road, and the enemy knows this and is fighting hard against us so we’ll give up now.

I’m telling you all, don’t give up.  Your breakthrough is coming.  I can feel it.

On this note, my pastor and dear friend received a word from God for the body with encouragement to keep going on just a few more steps.  God desires for us to go deeper in Him more than we have ever experienced.  And for this to happen, it is essential for the hard trials which many of us have gone through and are still going through.

So whatever you may be going through.  Don’t give up and seek Him more than you ever have before.

I hope this word encourages you all as much as it did me.

 

Word from God:

My people, listen to your Heavenly Father this day...know that I love 
you with an everlasting love. My love will never change. I want you all 
to BE like Me. As you will receive My words & allow them to go DEEP 
within your hearts, you will know the depths of My love for you on a 
level that you never thought possible. For even now, I am touching many 
of you as the depths of who I AM flows over your souls. For this is a 
time for My people to know Me for who I AM, so I can show them who they 
truly ARE. For as you will know My love, as it really is, you will find 
yourselves desiring Me more than anything else that there is...for the 
very depth of My heart will becomes yours, as you seek Me with all your 
hearts.
DEEP calls out to DEEP. I AM calling you, My people to come closer to 
Me...for you have come to the time that I desire to use many of you in 
the Earth. For as you will hearken unto My voice & take My words DEEP 
within you, you will understand the time that you are living. This I 
speak, not referring to the time of the end...but of the time that My 
people will shine as lights in a dark place. Please understand that this 
will not just happen...it will not just drop out of the sky...you have a 
part in doing this...for your response unto Me is always the deciding 
factor. Many of you desire to be used of Me, but many times fail to 
recognize that that I must first do a work within you, before I can use 
you on the level I desire.
Hear Me & understand...I must do it TO you, before I can do it THROUGH 
you. Every one of My servants have gone through great times of 
development, each according to their need. Moses, Joseph, David, to name 
a few, ALL had to go through a time of change & development in their 
lives. These things took many years. But know that I have been at work 
in many of you & you have developed greatly over time, but there is 
still more that needs to be done. This is the time for you to see that 
work fulfilled, so I can use you. Understand that the taller & greater 
My "building" within you for Me to use you on a great & powerful 
level...the greater My working through you...the deeper the foundation 
must go.
I must work My foundation DEEP within your hearts & lives...these things 
take time. I worked on Moses for nearly 40 years. I know to hear such 
things can intimidate many of you, but be of good courage...for I will 
do a quick work in these last days & as you will yield your lives unto 
Me, you will see great things happen in the days ahead. But, you must be 
willing to seek Me as you never have sought Me before. Deep calls out to 
deep...you must become DEEP like Me. Do you hear Me...you must BE DEEP 
like Me. This means that you must grow beyond what you already 
know...you must allow Me to work greater within you, to take you past 
where your faith now is...your faith must be deeper than you now know.
It is time for My people to seek My presence, as never before. Many will 
talk about My presence, but most really have no idea of what I mean when 
I say come into My presence.  Most of the time, My people will feel My 
presence, during a church service or at times during prayer, but soon 
afterwards, that sensation fades & there is no lasting change. Many do 
not understand what I am wanting to do within them. I want you to BE 
Carriers of My presence. Most do not know what being a carrier of My 
presence will do. When you carry My presence, it will change your 
lives...you will never be the same again...you are wrecked forever. You 
will even see people be overcome by My glory as you walk past them.

In order for this to happen, I need to go DEEPER into your hearts. Many 
of you will say, that you have opened up your entire hearts unto Me, but 
believe Me...there are depths DEEP within you that you have not given 
over to Me, but as you will purpose yourselves to come DEEPER unto Me, 
you will quickly realize just how true these words really are. This will 
shock many of you, as I show you areas of your lives that you thought 
that you have given over to Me. Do not be afraid for Me to do 
this...there is nothing to fear...for I only desire to free you from all 
that would keep you from being who YOU truly desire to be. For deep down 
within each of you, there is a great desire for you all to be just like Me.
Now let Me share something important with you. Some of you are very 
close to seeing My victory & breakthrough in your lives...just a few 
more "steps" forward, as you are led by My will, to enter into what I 
have planned for you. You have gone forward in many ways & have taken 
profound stepping to seek Me...to listen to My voice & to allow Me to 
direct your paths. For many, this has been a trying & difficult time, as 
you have witnessed Me take you through things that you never would think 
I would do. And by this I mean...you have gone through 
difficulties...you have gone through disappointments & trials...you have 
gone through hard times, only to see Me move you forward by just a very 
few steps.
Hear Me now & know My heart for you...for I care deeply for you & only 
want good things in your lives...but because of your callings...because 
what I have planned for you to do, it is needful for you to take the 
steps in this "stepping"...to see My victory & breakthrough come in your 
lives. For truly, Moses needed to go all of those years, tending sheep, 
so I could use him to be a leader of My people & deliver them out of 
bondage. For truly, Joseph needed to go through that time of unjust 
punishment & imprisonment, so I could lift him us to be 2nd to Pharaoh & 
save Egypt & all of his family from the famine that had struck the land. 
Truly David needed to fight the lion & the bear, so he could kill Goliath.
Even so, those of you who I have called for such great purposes, must 
also go through such times of hardship & even times of pain...so I can 
work a work in you for your good. For My grace is sufficient for you, 
for My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Lift up your heads & 
rejoice for what I have prepared for you. Know that I have begun a good 
work in you & will perform it until the day of Christ. Those who feel 
like you are not getting anywhere, please understand that things ARE 
happening - work IS being done. You just need to recognize that what I 
do isn't always something you are even aware of. Just trust Me to take 
you ahead in your walk & you will not be disappointed, says the Lord".

If this word has encouraged you at all, please consider helping me with my
financial needs, in any amount. The Lord still has me relying on the financial
support from others and donations have been down a lot lately. Of course, I
pray that He abundantly blesses all those who are faithful in helping me.

Love and blessings to you all.

Your brother in Christ,
Kevin B.

  1. Hi Kevin,
    When I was just reading the part in your email about the setback you experienced I immediately was reminded of a word Christine Beadsworth received back in 2011. Here is the link: http://pressingtowardthegoal.blogspot.com/2011/02/arrow-of-lord-christine-beadsworth.html I hope it encourages you as it did me back in 2011 when I read it, and again reading it today.
    As always, your and your pastor’s word from the Lord is right on time.
    Thank you for your obedience to Him.
    Shalom,
    Shari

  2. For you personally, not to post.

    Dear Kevin,

    Hang in there, do not be disappointed. When I read your latest personal happening, I thought of this Scripture I had just read today:

    Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.(James 1:1)

    You are a true messenger and are still hearing from God. Be so happy.
    Maybe, Our Lord’s coming is this year, we have to persevere.

    Your Catholic friend,

    Mary Shinn

  3. Timely word ! I tell you the truth this past week I was on the verge of giving up . But I thank the Lord for his grace and strength . I am trying to spend more time in prayer to draw close to him . When the devil tempts you to give up , its because breakthrough and blessing is right around the corner.

    Blessings brother Kevin

  4. Dear Kevin,

    I believe in everything that you’re saying, in May of last year, may10th, I was spoken to by God, and he told me many of the same things you report here. I recorded that experience and put it online at http://chriscarlson.me/rationalization. Please do read it anytime.

    I also received a dream that I believe came from the Lord and I also put that online, that is at http://chriscarlson.me/dive.

    I have a great deal of Peace in my heart now, especially considering the weight of the message and the circumstances of my life, I am for the most part at peace, but at the same time I still feel afraid and worried sometimes. Sometimes I really worry that I’m not doing enough to help. Sometimes I really worry that I’m not good enough and I don’t deserve to be a part of God’s plan like this. I try to live a holy life, but I constantly fail. I worry that I will end up not being good enough.

    I’m writing you wondering if you wrestle with these things at all? I’m hoping maybe just hearing from someone who is also in this kind of situation might help. Honestly I wasn’t a Godly Man or even a strong believer in God at all before May 10th of last year, so this stuff is kind of new to me.

    Anyway, thanks for your time Kevin. I hope all is well with you.

    God bless you,
    Chris Carlson

  5. Wow, I must confirm that indeed God is working a work in us before revealing us to the world. I’m glad this message is going across to individuals. Bless you.

For those leaving a comment: Please understand that the Lord has charged me to give out His warnings to awaken His people to prepare for the days ahead. In this, He has told me to not waste precious time trying to convince any that will not hear, for they have already made their choice. So with that, if your comment is a personal attack, insult, rude, or to argue; then may the Lord bless you and keep you. I will not answer back to any rude comments, nor post them. Blessings to you, Kevin Barrett
