Habakkuk 3:16-19 ~
“I heard and my inward parts trembled,
At the sound my lips quivered.
Decay enters my bones,
And in my place I tremble.
Because I must wait quietly for the day of distress,
For the people to arise who will invade us.
Though the fig tree should not blossom
And there be no fruit on the vines,
Though the yield of the olive should fail
And the fields produce no food,
Though the flock should be cut off from the fold
And there be no cattle in the stalls,
Yet I will exult in the Lord,
I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
The Lord God is my strength,
And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.”
Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ. I feel I must share this message with you today.
Yesterday evening, I had been feeling a sadness that increased. . . When I quieted myself down, to seek the LORD on why I was feeling this way, this is what the Holy Spirit spoke in my spirit:
“Death and destruction are at the door, but my people play like it’s a party. I’m going to tear down those party palaces.”
The sadness intensified and a wave of loneliness and heartache hit me, with tears . . . This was related to personal circumstances, my sins and the sins of others that had impacted me throughout the years.
I felt the heavy reality of how truly wretched I am, without the forgiveness and salvation offered through Jesus Christ, Yeshua, our Messiah. Thoughts of this fallen world we live in brought even greater grief to my soul, as the heartache intensified and the tears fell even more.
I asked the LORD to take the tears and turn them into songs of “I LOVE YOU LORD” as sacrifices of praise to Him.
I learned throughout the years, that praising the LORD, in the midst of deep sadness, is the only thing that brings relief to my soul. It is also the ONLY time we have . . . right now . . . in THIS life. . . to offer a “sacrifice of praise”, for in eternity, it will NOT be a sacrifice it will be a JOYFUL REALITY OF PRAISE!!!
Even with the praise and tears . . . . the sadness, loneliness and heartache STILL would not go away.
I then heard the Holy Spirit speak in my spirit:
“That is what people will feel when they believe I left them.”
I understood that Word meant there will be sadness, loneliness and heartache that professing Christians will experience when the death and destruction occurs THROUGHOUT THE GLOBE, for people will believe they have been abandoned by the LORD and THAT is NOT true, for HE IS ALWAYS WITH US!!!
I WANT TO MAKE MYSELF PERFECTLY CLEAR HERE:
We will NOT go unscathed in this, so get ready my fellow U.S. citizens, we WILL see this judgement in our land TOO!!!
Indeed, this entire planet is under judgement, for we are in the final days. HOWEVER, the LORD wants to remind us there is HOPE for those who are truly in Jesus Christ (Yeshua), when we trust in Him, regardless of the circumstances surrounding us. . .
. . . AND we WILL be used to usher in the final harvest of souls, IF we submit FULLY to the Will of the Heavenly Father for our life.
Remember the truth of the Scriptures that tell us the LORD will ALWAYS be with us, in the midst of the WORST times AND HE is our “Good Shepherd”.
Hebrews 13:5-6 ~
“Make sure that your character is free from the love of money,
being content with what you have;
for He Himself has said,
‘I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,’
so that we confidently say,
‘The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid.
What will man do to me?’”

Psalm 23 ~
“The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
EVEN THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
I FEAR NO EVIL, FOR YOU ARE WITH ME.
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

A WORSHIP SONG TO SHARE WITH YOU:
I WILL CLOSE WITH THIS PLEA & PRAYER:
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure you have a clean heart and walk with our HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
HE will help you stay on the path of righteousness for HIS name sake (Psalm 23:3).
PLEASE continue to pray for those who are lost (and yes, that includes the MAJORITY of professing Christians who truly do NOT know the LORD and are in the bondage to religion).
REMEMBER our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ . . . Lifting them up in prayers.
GET READY . . . ALL yielded vessels, to the FULL will of the Heavenly Father. . . WE WILL help bring in the final harvest of souls to the Kingdom of Heaven. . . For such a time as this. We’re going to be really, really busy.
We ARE the generation that will see the return of Yeshua our KING.
Father, I pray that You release a supernatural “FEAR OF THE LORD” upon the entire earth, with FIRE, FIRE, FIRE!!! Bring conviction and repentance to ALL who will receive the truth of Your Holiness and Righteousness, understanding that YOU created all things and we are but mere creations of YOURS.
Help open the spiritual eyes and ears of those who do not know You, that they repent and be set free through the Salvation offered through the shed blood of Yeshua.
Set us on a greater path of Holiness that ONLY You can help us stay on.
Deliver us from ALL evil plots, plans and strategies of the enemies of our soul.
Help us to be FULLY yielded vessels to YOUR will, that we can fulfil ALL that you have planned for our lives individually and as the Body of TRUE believers and followers of Jesus Christ, Yeshua our Messiah.
We thank you, Father and we PRAISE you, LORD, for you are good all the time. . . Even in the darkest hours. LET YOUR FULL WILL BE DONE IN ALL THINGS. I ask this in the name of Yeshua. Amen and AMEN!!!
Linda’s Post-Publish Note:
Many times the Holy Spirit will bring up and use these waves of emotions as a part of intercession. It’s also an amazing (yet painful) way to “share in the sufferings of Christ”. Other times, I’m allowed to feel a very tiny, tiny measure of the Heavenly Father’s heart about a matter; it can feel like I’m going to burst at those times, when HE is grieved. So, any who experience this too . . . Just consider it a blessing and use it for intercession, praise and worship. Also, remember these Scripture verses:
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 ~ “For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Remember, we are Ambassadors of Christ. Let’s act accordingly, for the Heavenly Father IS watching us.
