1 John 3:1-2 –
“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.”
Romans 8:14 –
“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”
1 John 3:10 –
“This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.”
Back in 2011, I was being drawn deeper into the things of God, by the Holy Spirit. I was also being drawn back to the calling on my life and to pick up the gifts the Holy Spirit had given me.
I knew back in the 1990s, that I would be a “voice” for the Heavenly Father, calling people to prepare for the return of Jesus Christ; He showed me this in many, many dreams.
I also knew that when I did step into this calling, as I am doing now, that the return of the LORD Jesus is on the horizon, for in the 1990s I was shown many dreams about “the rapture”; one of them I wrote up on my blog:
Anyway, I had basically given up all ministry, using most of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and wanted to live a “normal Christian life” (yes, laugh with me on that idea), while also feeling wretched, miserable and unusable by the LORD (yes, it was a massive demonic attack that nearly took me out). I never stopped loving Jesus, nor did I blame Him for what took place in my life; I viewed things as failure on my part and nothing the LORD did or did not do on His part.
I put all of that away in the back of my mind, because of some very difficult times of testing back in 2000 (some day I’ll write all of this up as a part of my testimony). All that I continued doing was praying for my spouse at the time, for his healing as the need arose; the LORD graciously answered most of those prayers and the healing miracles occurred.
I want to stop now and pray for the LORD bless my former spouse with mercy; may he return fully to Jesus Christ and become a mighty man of God, for such a time as this.
While I was deeply begging for ONLY the LORD’s will to be done in my life. . . my life became worse and worse; and that is when I gave up all ministry, laid down the gifts of the Holy Spirit and withdrew from the calling on my life. But I digress, now back to 2011:
I was warned by the Holy Spirit my spouse at the time would be leaving me; the warning came in a veiled dream and through a Chapter in Psalms that the LORD continued directing me to read (I won’t put that here, for it was a message to me personally). Both the dream and the Scriptures were to be written down and that is what I did.
I would like to note here: It was really important that I obeyed the prompting to write down the dream and the Scriptures. The day came when I was able to refer back to it and remind myself that the LORD was with me throughout all of that time and knew what would happen before it occured. HE is faithful even when others in our life are not.
What unfolded within a few months from that revelation was indeed the ending of my marriage. The drawing from the Holy Spirit, back into a deeper relationship with the LORD Jesus, was something my professing Christian spouse could not handle. I was told, “where you are going, I can not go.”
I never wanted that marriage to end. I felt like discarded shoes, easily replaced. My heart felt like it was being ripped out of my chest and the grief was what one must have when they lose a spouse to death.
Others are going through this right now, in the body of Christ. Remember: Jesus is with YOU, he LOVES you and He will NEVER leave, nor forsake YOU, even when others in your life abandon you. . . HE IS STILL THE LORD AND YOU STILL HAVE A CALLING ON YOUR LIFE. . . . don’t let the enemy steal that which the Father placed in your heart to do, even if you must do it with tears.
JESUS WARNS US in Matthew 10:34-39 –
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and A man’s enemies will be the members of his household.
“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.”
It was during those dark days of grief that I was given this vision from the LORD, for those who are FULLY In Christ Jesus and have given HIM ALL of their life:
We are all seen as little children, around the age of 3. I saw the daughters being like “Daddy’s little girl”, sitting on His lap, incredibly and deeply loved and VERY protected by the Heavenly Father.
I saw the men as beloved sons, riding on the top of their Daddy’s shoulders, legs dangling in front, Dad holding on to their hands and the sons looking around from that high place on Dad’s shoulders; deeply and incredibly loved and VERY protected by the Heavenly Father.
I also was given a better understanding of the divine position men and women have in marriage. Men are placed in the position to protect their wives and family; this is the meaning of “head of household”. It’s from a vantage point to watch and protect. It was NEVER meant to subjugate and rule with authority, for the Christian Wife, “Daddy’s little girl”, is right there close to the Father’s Heart.
Where the wife is to “submit”, is to listen to any warnings the husband perceives as a threat to her and the family. He is given authority to protect and provide for his family. TOGETHER they are to seek the LORD for His wisdom and direction for their family.
The Wife is close to the Father’s heart, listening to His heartbeat; this is why the majority of intercessors are women – the Warriors for the Kingdom of Heaven. The Husband is given authority to watch over and protect the family. BOTH NEED EACH OTHER TO BE A FULL REFLECTION OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER.
Male or Female. .. . one is not better than or greater than the other, for the Bible CLEARLY tells us:
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” ~ Galatians 3:28
The demonic forces propelled Christianity into darkness when it came to marriage and the religious spirit arose to cause harm within the family. Some families are impacted by this right now. Some churches prescribe to this as well, viewing women as “less than” and there is either a direct or indirect push to keep women “in their place”, with a harsh authoritarian rule of men on the family and over the wives and children. It was never meant to be that way, but sin and darkness is even within the professing body of Christ.
Another way the demonic forces have come into marriage is to have women rise up in ungodly ways, pushing to manipulate and control; to rule over her husband and family. Marriage was never meant to be that way either. We are to LOVE one another and to SERVE one another . . to prefer the OTHER over ourselves, just like Jesus did for us.
WE ARE ALL BROKEN PEOPLE AND NEED THE LORD JESUS TO COME IN AND CLEAN US UP . . . if we will only let Him. Repentance is the beginning, with forgiveness as the balm that starts the healing of a wounded heart. When we forgive another. . . we ourselves are set free and set in motion the greater intimacy available to us in Christ Jesus. We must humble ourselves and become like little children in the sight of our Holy God.
This is why Jesus said to us, in Matthew 18:3-4:
” . . .Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
May the LORD help us ALL to submit to HIM, to repent in ALL areas that are unclean in His eyes. forgive ALL who sin against us and to remail pure and clean in our relationship with the LORD and with one another. May He help us to TRULY love one another deeply, from our heart.
May He give each of us His perspective of our siblings in the Body of Christ, including our spouses, so we may see them as He sees them, serve them as He would serve them and love them as He loves them.
Time is way too short to continue in in the darkness and deception that demonically-inspired doctrines have pushed onto the families.
Let us ALL search the Scriptures, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, so HE can teach us the FULL truth, that we may ALL be set free. . . . for such a time as this.
Ephesians 3:14-21 –
“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”
