Listen to His Voice in Women

December 22, 2014:

As I laid in bed before falling asleep,
I heard a woman say, "Excuse me."

Then I asked the Spirit to speak.

"Why do my own brothers forget me?"

Who is she, Lord?

"She is the voice of women
as I created them to be.
She is the wisdom of womankind,
long set aside and marginalized
by men across the world.

I have put My wisdom in her,
but men do not listen to her.
I am speaking through her,
but they don't want to
hear Me speak from her."

What should we do, Lord?

"Repent! Repent for
keeping women in submission
instead of listening to Me
speak through them."

Mocking "the Other Side"

“You call yourself a Christian,
a follower of My Son who loved all,
who gave His life on the cross
even for My enemies.

You call yourself a Christian,
but you mock political opponents
and joke about them being stupid
and "making their heads explode."

You call yourself a Christian,
but speak in disgust and contempt,
with ridicule and insult,
feeling righteous in your rightness.

You mock liberals and say
that they are "bleeding hearts,"
as if compassion were foolish.
And so you fail to see...

When you mock their heart
you mock My Son's bleeding heart,
the heart that bled for you
and bled for your enemy.

When you mock conservatives
as being completely heartless,
you mock the Creator of their hearts
and make your own hearts hardened.

Whenever you mock
the hearts of others,
you also mock My Son's heart
that loved and died for their hearts.

Some are mistaken in politics;
some are following a bad course;
some are hypocrites;
but some are genuine.

Who are you to judge them all?
Who are you to mock them all?
Who are you to judge their hearts
And say that they're all just evil?

Do not rejoice in hating others!
Do not gloat in calling them stupid!
Do not join in the crowd of those
who ridiculed My Son on the Cross!

For the insults that you give them
have fallen upon My Son,
and the harsh words you speak
are the nails driven into Him.

Choose the way of grace instead.
Choose the way of life.
Stand for justice and truth,
but do not forsake His love.”

Prosperous and Dying

"My people,

Your prosperity is killing you,
your love is growing cold,
your hearts are stopping,
but you can't see it.

As it was in the days of Noah,
so it is now today—
you are occupied and distracted
with many things.

You have been hardened
and your discernment
has been made dull
by material pursuits.

My Son told you that
you must suffer to enter the kingdom,
that you would have tribulation,
that you must carry your cross.

But you have confined His commands
and marginalized His teachings;
you have set aside His words
as being just for emergencies.

What brings you material prosperity
has become your way, truth and life;
what brings you success in the world
has become your teacher and guide.

You are dying for lack of
the water of life, My people;
some of the richest among you
have fallen and are nearly dead.

Will you cease your pursuits
and seek the water of life?
It will threaten your material wealth
and ruin your comfortable life.

Will you unplug the well
and allow My fountain to flow?
Or will you keep My Son's teachings
from disturbing your prosperity?"
