In this Heaven talk we discuss the sorrows and joys we've all been experiencing this week as land mark decisions have been made in our country and we draw closer to the Rapture. We share some rapture dreams and some episodes of suffering the Lord has gone through with His Bride, some of our viewers.
Thank you and God bless you for watching and supporting our channel.
Hosea 10:12 "Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD Until He comes to rain righteousness on you."
This Heaven Talk is about a time of preparation for what is looming on the horizon and headed our way. Even though we may not have the specifics, we know we must be waiting, watching and prepared for at any time the Lord will come for us. We are sharing with you our posture as we prepare to stand in readiness for the events God is going to allow on this earth.
The most important part of that preparation is not storing up food and water but being right with God. "Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Lately the Holy Spirit has been impressing on us the need for holiness of life, repentance and complete devotion to His known will as never before in our lives, every single day. Anything less than that puts us in the perilous position of a virgin whose lamp has gone out.
25“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21
Thank you for tuning into our channel. We pray you will be blessed as we share with you what the Lord is sharing with us.
This is part 3 of a series on marriage and discernment. It's the tail end of a discussion Honoring Your Husband, (Heaven Talk playlist) and focuses more on discerning the spirit you are talking to, Jesus or an imposter. Even after over 30 years of hearing good solid words from the Lord, we still make errors in discernment and in this segment we talk just a little about the dynamics involved.
Sometimes when we have grown very, very close to the Lord and have had the great privilege of hearing and seeing Him spiritually, sometimes, He unexpectedly draws away in the sense that we can no longer sense His presence. Spiritual Dryness
At those times we are being tried like fire tried gold and He wants to see how truly devoted to Him we are. Do we draw away from Him, cut our prayer times shorter, make more and more decisions independently, not seeking His perfect will? Indulge in things we know from the past are not His best for us?
Do we come under condemnation because He seems silent? Do we believe the Devil's lies that God has deserted us? Or do we stand steadfast in faith, patiently awaiting the time of His return to our sensible presence? Spiritual Dryness
Do we condemn ourselves unjustly and assign all kinds of motives as to why He is so quiet? Well, indeed, sometimes He is quiet because He is trying to get our attention about something in us that needs to go.
He isn't deserting us, no He's causing us to go deeper, look deeper as well as trying our devotion to Him to see just how faithful we will be when we can't feel Him.
In this video we share with you from a combined experience of over 60 years, the many, many ways in which we deserve these times of desolation and in the times when it is not about getting our attention to correct our course, rather it is a trial of patience to refine His golden vessels even more.
And we reassure you, it is not about punishment, but love. He loves us so much He wants us to grow purer and purer in our love for Him…which inevitably leads to the greatest happiness on Earth a Christian can know.
We hope and pray this two part video will help you come to a peace about the dry desert times when Jesus seems so far away. We hope and pray it will give you the courage to persevere and we share with you quite candidly our own failures…you are not alone on this journey, we all get a turn.
The Lord bless you precious YouTube family, we thank you for being a part of our lives, you are so very much appreciated and prayed for. Clare
In today's world there are so many different helps to finding your purpose in life. Counselors, classes, seminars, ministry weekends, on and on and on. But Jesus who lives in your heart, will guide you through the deep desires of your heart, if you will just let go and listen to that inner yearning.
If we follow our head it is unlikely that the path we plan will ever bring the deep inner peace and fulfillment we long for. As we think about our path in life we calculate elements such as what our parents believe we should do, our friends and siblings, our church family, the allure of accomplishment in the world, money, fame, and beauty.
But not one of those originates with God. All of them are men's ways of planning a life. The Lord doesn't make it hard for us, He speaks to us from the heart, deeply, a quiet yearning to do something that perhaps no other person would recognize as our path…but if we follow it, will lead to profound peace and satisfaction in the Lord.
Our calling in this life is something we never would have captured the specifics of had we dreamt the wildest dreams. But the Lord led us by little steps to the unlikely place we have found our happiness in.
Ezekiel shares his journey and how the Lord writes straight with crooked lines, but always from the heart, always in the moment, and always perfect in the end result.
Intimacy with Jesus, Our Necessary Preparation For What is Yet To Come
Recently in prayer, I caught myself thinking about how I wanted to 'finish up' and get into my work. I believe it was the Holy Spirit Who helped me to see that I was actually wanting to cut short my time with the Lord to go work on the ministry gifts He's given me.
I thought for a moment and saw how terribly hurtful it must have been for the Lord to be with me, happy and comforted as we were together, and yet He undoubtedly heard my thoughts, "I want to hurry up and get to work."
He knows me and He knows the human frame, so He does understand, but how terribly hurtful that God would visit a soul and that soul would be eager to finish up the encounter and get to working on their projects! Martha, Martha again!
I repented in that very moment and spent even more time with Him and Oh how sweet it was…and to repent and ask His forgiveness and feel His forgiveness as He held me tenderly.
When things in country get so bad that it's either your little girl or God, who are you going to choose? Will you take the mark to save a family member? Will you take the mark so you can get medical treatment before you die? I believe the only protection we have against that happening is the Lord's mercy and an intimate 'in love with Jesus' relationship that we simply will not sacrifice for anyone or anything.
The writing is truly on the wall, we are approaching the definitive times, times that define where we reside for eternity. Are we ready to watch a love one die because we didn't receive the mark? Only God knows that answer, but, our chances of remaining steadfast are much higher if we are in love with Him.
Thank you and God bless you for watching and supporting our channel.
Have you ever wanted to go to Heaven...before you die? There is a way, to dispose yourself for Heavenly visitations with Jesus as your escort. It is through dwelling prayer of the heart. Christ dwells with us, in our hearts and speaking and hearing from Him is nothing more than entering the realm of His Heart living within us. His Heart is the gate to the sheepfold and Heaven itself.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible....... 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.…Colossians 1:16
John 10:3The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.
John 10:7 “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. ......... I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.a
They will come in and go out, and find pasture. ...... I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
23Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. John 14:23
There is no way to enter Heaven, except through Jesus and taking that a little further, since He holds all of creation together by His love, access to Heaven is in our very own hearts where He dwells.
So in these interviews we share with you how it came about that we were taken to Heaven by Jesus to preview the home He has prepared for us.
We are nothing special, what He did for us He will do for you, just ask. We believe that He did lay out a precondition to being able to see Him, a pure heart.
"Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall SEE God." Matthew 5:8
But I would like to add that we may not have arrived yet at this place but if we desire it with all our being, the Lord will honor this desire if we correspond to every grace He imparts to us to change and He will see you as a completed work in Him.
So you see, there is nothing weird or new age about seeing Jesus and having Him accompany you to Heaven. All things are possible to God. Only we must believe and ask without a wavering mind.
So Ezekiel and I share how the Lord has led us into prayer and taken us there, and how we may return at will. He so totally understands the pressures and tragedies we deal with on earth and in this He has given us some respite.
This video takes on the form of a relaxed conversation, so it might start a little slow, but hang on for the good stuff is coming and we believe all the details we begin with are important for laying the foundation.
This Video is part of a series called 'Heaven Talk' and we welcome your questions or experiences, which we will talk about on our next episode. Thanks SO much for watching. Pray for us YouTube family...we are praying for you too.
