As we met for the first day of the "New Year", our Father had many things to say to us. Mostly to encourage us not to be fainthearted, but to stay faithful to the end. "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." (Matt.24:12-13) "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." (Gal.6:9) We must keep our eyes on the goal and not be sidetracked and deceived. "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run [their very best to win], but only one receives the prize? Run [your race] in such a way that you may seize the prize and make it yours!" (1 Corin. 9:24)
This year coming up says the Spirit of grace and mercy, you will need to know My Word, you will need to follow My Word, for the enemy has sent out a spirit of delusion, a strong delusion. For my people are believing lies, lies that he has weaved into their lives from the beginning, he knew exactly what it would take to move you from your place in Me, and he has been weaving those lies into your character. Twisting deception, by using the people in your life to further feed his delusions, further mixing his illusion of lies by the places that you give preference over me, and to the things you touch that causes you to be unholy. The enemy wasn't successful in keeping you from Me, so he starts getting you to intermingle and mix your pure life that I planned for you with confusion, a set up life, either for good or evil, your choice. Now I say to you this year coming up, this year on your calendar, recognize you will eat the fruit of your choice. My calendar is set says the Spirit of mercy and grace, I have seen some things, and I have gone ahead of you and prepared a place for you, a place, a landing place where you can endure all things that are coming upon this earth and not only endure but you will exceed to another level. If you choose to stay hidden in the secret place of your most high God, where there is "your" power, there is "your" strength. Outside of the Word of your God you are prey for the enemy, but inside the secret place you are safe and secure, and you will make it says the Lord, not only make it but you will succeed. You will then cause others to run to the shelter that you provide by your choice. This year, says the Lord, set yourself apart and I will set My seal upon you, and everyone will
know that there is a difference upon your life, because you will be really unique says the Spirit of grace and mercy.
"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!" (Deut.30:19)
"For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches." (Rom. 11:16)
"He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies." (2 Thess. 2:11)
