God is Building A House of Habitation.... Do We know Where to Look and what to look for?
Read below as Papa God shares His heart, in what He's looking for, and how we can join in with what He's doing. Many of us will bare witness with joy at His words and what lays ahead. This was the word He had me release this last Saturday at the end of my message at Face to Face Ministries in Canada. Be encouraged! Amy <3
I was asking Papa, why we have to go through all the things we do?
Of course, being the wise counselor He is, He asked me a question right back ... "Amy, What make a good Sea Captain?" "Hmmmm?" I pondered. He continued, "What makes a great sea captain, is that he is experienced in the ways of the Sea." Simple answer, yet always profound, I thought.
Think about it...
You have asked me the question, “Lord, What must I do?” Do? I question. Papa responded, Haven’t I already done everything? What more could you do? If you are trying to "do," it means you are trying to "earn." What could you possibly earn from Me that I haven't already given you? I don’t want you to be focused on your self-works. It can become a great trap that ensnares many of My children. Refuse to go down the path of self-works...
Receive My love... stop reaching for it.
Receive it. Ask yourself why you are struggling to receive... Could it be that you want to earn it? Ask yourself why you would want to earn it? Is it so that you'll feel better about yourself? Looking at it as though it's something YOU'VE accomplished? That, My dear one, would only feed your pride. I want you to receive My love because then; you'll freely give it. If you don't freely receive it, you'll teach others that they have to work for it. Hasn't religion done a good enough job of that one?
Separate yourself from the clenches of religious thought and beliefs, stating you're a poor soul that has to earn everything through penance. What love is that? No love at all! Only works, pride, and man's religion.
Come up higher, come up to a place of pure thought. I am not asking you to be perfect. Again that is a belief obtained by your own works.
To become something, you often have to receive something. Receive My love and become love. Whatever you put your focus on, you'll become. Your eyes are the windows of your soul. Put them on My Words and receive what you want to become instead of it eluding you through self-effort.
Do you think the Temple model or church building is what We (Papa, Jesus, and Holy Spirit) intended? We never wanted to live in temples or a building alone. Isn't that written all throughout My scriptures? Who can contain us? We never wanted mankind to just visit us once a week for a one to two-hour session on Sunday...
I was thinking today about the excessive, wordy amounts of info out there and how it affects us... I asked Papa about it and this is what He said...
"Too much information can cause indigestion. I want My people to chew on it, not choke on it."
This is one of our favorite Graham Cooke stories... Living in Christ makes us vulnerable to laughter. Laughter is more than a choice; it’s a requirement for us that we be happy. God’s highest plan for our lives includes a desire for us to find, live in, and love the joy that is in Christ. God is good news! His love and presence is an absolute tonic for us.
I spent several years overseas in a variety of places. Single-minded to His call to the nations. To follow Him, lovesick, willing to do anything for Him. In the process and by the tutorship of the Holy Spirit and other gifted ministers of His Grace, I learned on the job...
This is one of the best, most balanced writings we've come across; breaking down the doctrine of "Covering and Leadership". Well worth the read!!
