Trials and Temptations
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
These things I command you, that ye love one another.
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
‘At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them.
The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.
The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. ‘At midnight the cry rang out: “Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!”
‘Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.” ‘ “No,” they replied, “there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.”
‘But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. ‘Later the others also came. “Lord, Lord,” they said, “open the door for us!” ‘But he replied, “Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.”
‘Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
30th March 2021
All that is covered shall be revealed and all that has been hidden secretly shall be exposed. I am the LORD and those who solely put their trust in the LORD with their whole heart shall fear not.
This is the time of My vindication for I am your defence, I am your strong tower and when you run into My everlasting arms I place Myself as a shield and buckler around you.
I know those who have maligned you, spoken slanderous words against you. I know those who have condemned you without knowing all the facts of your life. I know those who have placed stumbling blocker before you because you spoke the truth in My Name.
Fear not My children, for I am the One who shall vindicate you. Expect My vindication to come from unexpected people and places, for even now many who profess My Name do not realise the shaky ground they stand upon with My anger towards them.
I know all hearts, I know of every careless word spoken against My anointed, against My children. I am your Father and I love My children. I am the Holy Spirit and shall I not defend Mine own from the mouths of those who choose to blemish, who choose to stand in contempt and scorn against those whom I love? I am not a man who looks the other way, for those who choose to judge without knowledge, neither with all the facts shall be judged themselves by My Hand alone.
My children, this is the time of My Vindication so step aside and lean into Me as I bring this about to completely exonerate you. All shall see that I have fought for you, all shall witness and see how I convict those who have blamed you without reason.
Many have discredited you with no true knowledge and without love or kindness. My church has become a house of gossip and slander and this has been to your own brothers and sisters in Christ; this should not be!
Have I not commanded thee to love one another as I have loved you? Have I not forgiven all your sins by My precious blood? Who are you to judge those whom I have vindicated, those whom I died for on the cross and for those whom I love as My own? Surely, I am the LORD who shall vindicate My own children. Yes! And more! I shall do this openly in the hope that those who judge, those who blame and condemn without knowledge will come to Me in the fruit of deeper repentance. For surely all shall stand before the Throne of God, some sooner than they think.
Yes, I am the One above who vindicate My sons and daughters for I, Jesus have placed all their sins in the sea of My forgetfulness, I have placed their name in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Shall your slander and gossip of lies against your brothers and sisters make Me change My love for them? No! But I say be careful for I shall judge every careless word, every lie at My appointed time.
Take heed for I am watching, I am threshing My floor with My winnowing fork, My refiners fire is here and behold it starts with the House of God!
If you claim to follow Me, walk as I walk, walk in My Spirit and bear the fruit of repentance; love one another as I have loved you. Be careful that you do not do your righteous acts as though before man, remember I openly reward those who seek Me in the secret place.
Humble yourselves therefore under the Mighty Hand of God and He shall lift you up. Serve the LORD with fear and trembling for His eyes roam to and fro over this earth; God cannot be mocked for a man reaps what he sows.
The time is short so I say get rid of your anger, jealousy, slander even unto your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus for I am the LORD who examines the heart, I am the LORD who sees all both good and evil.
I am the Good Shepherd and I lay down My Life for My Sheet. I know My Sheep and My Sheep know Me. Surely I say that judgment starts with the House of God.
I AM JESUS
Before Abraham was, I am
