ABIDE, DON'T HIDE. Posted 081619 @ 2.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: ABIDE, DON’T HIDE. It is written in John 15.7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done 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. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; for everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall I give good things to them that ask of Me? Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called; preaching My kingdom, and teaching those things which concern the LORD Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding; in whom ye have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him. Be filled with My Holy Spirit and speak My Word with boldness. Stir up the gift I have given thee and open your mouth boldly making known the mystery of the gospel. Fear thou not for I am with thee; be not dismayed for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee, yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. I shall hear you and deliver you from all your fears. Ye are of Me and have overcome them because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. For I have not given thee the spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind. I am not a man that I should lie; neither the son of man that I should repent; have I not said, and shall I not do it? Or have I spoken it and shall I not make it good? So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My mouth; it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. I will give rest unto My people according to all that I promised; there will not one word of all My good promise fail. Fear not for I am come to prove you that My fear may be before your faces that ye sin not. And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Me for I am able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Come boldly unto My throne of grace that ye may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto Me, which is your reasonable service. Be not ashamed, but with all boldness preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine. Above all, take the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is My Word; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. ABIDE, DON'T HIDE. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
