Word for 2014 12/13/13
1 Corinthians 16:9
2 Corinthians 2:12
This year I will open doors of opportunities, open doors for the preaching of the gospel of Jesus. Through My Church will spread everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.
This fragrance, of life to some and of death to others, will result in opposition, for many oppose the truth now, suppressing the truth in unrighteousness.
Be bold, but not brassy, and stand strong, always ready to give an answer for the hope within you. Be sensitive to others, perceptive as to their spiritual needs.
Pray Colossians 4:3. Pray to be the faithful Church, not the corrupt, compromising, complacent Church. Revelation 3:7-13
This year many will deny My Name and will not endure patiently. I know you have little strength; I am and must be your strength—every day, daily. Keep My Word.
As doors open for the gospel, opposition increases. They may hate you, but it is Me they hate.
The presence coming will divide and reveal more clearly the seed of Satan from the Seed of Christ. My Spirit in you will break through the veil of flesh to let the Glory shine through. Be prepared for this.
I am sanctifying to Myself a holy people, a holy bride. As I set My people apart, even those in the visible church will separate from you.
You are My special treasure. I will open doors in heaven, raining down My Spirit upon you. I will watch over you and keep My covenant promises to you.
Isaiah 33:1-6. This is what you can claim for this year. And then watch Me in all of Isaiah 33.
Who are the uncircumcised to defy the Armies of the Living God? I am the Mighty One. K n o w (oida) Me. And I will open the treasures of wisdom and knowledge in Christ. Colossians 2:3
I walk this earth in the midst of my enemies 1/3/14
. . .
Son of David, I walk this earth in the midst of my enemies. I walk this earth in the midst of devils screaming out -- demons. This earth filled with demons, walking in this evil age. Nevertheless, I overcame. And everywhere I walked, I AM the Peace of Jerusalem. I AM the Peace. And the day is coming, You will see that mixture. For that is the mixture of the Church. Not the hidden treasure of Christ, but the hidden darkness of evil. Most will not know what to do. And they will fear, for they have not faith. And why do they not have faith? Because they do not know. And they will come in, and they will come in and sit and eat and fellowship, and I never knew them....

It will be different this year. I will give you what I will do on your behalf for those present before Me.
Deut. 28:2-14; Deut. 30:1-14; Acts 5:25-32; Luke 11:28
I will keep covenant with you who are in Christ Jesus. I will bless you for His sake and surround you with My love and grace. I will do you good all the days of your life.
To those who heed the call to “come and dine,” I will fellowship with you. Ask of Me, and I will show you great and mighty things which you know not of. Ask. Seek. Knock. Luke 11:9-13.
I will open of My treasures and share with you of Mine. All that the Father has is Mine. John 16:15.
Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. [Jn 16:33]
I am coming to you, Israel 1/10/14
. . .
Son of David, do you hear? Like Elijah (whoever it was), listening for the rain: "Is it raining yet?" "Is it raining yet?" [1 Kings 18] For I tell you, the God who sends the drought is likewise the God who sends the rain. In the quiet, hear the still small voice. [1 Kings 19] And remember, that the word of the prophet, bearing the voice of the Almighty, though it be a still, small voice, yet it carries ALL the power, and ALL the authority of the ONLY True God. Do not quiet - the - voice - of the Almighty. For that voice is the voice of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of the Father, the Spirit of Christ. Do not quiet that voice, lest he withdraw. Guard the anointing on your life.
For I am coming to you, Israel. And I may not be noisy. You look for manifestations. Lightning and thunder and earthquakes, and who knows what. Wonders you look for, and signs. But are you quiet, to hear the still small voice? Oh Jerusalem, there's a lot of racket. Are you trying to drown out the still small voice with all of your noise? It is nothing to me, for I will say what I will say. But will you listen, and will you heed? I am coming to you Israel, and the days are short. You never thought, that the Messiah would appear in flesh in a baby, though it was written. It's a-l-l in there.
And now, so many people come to Jerusalem and to Israel, to walk where Jesus walked. And they go home, and they do not walk as Jesus would have them walk. It is a remarkable thing. Will you put on my shoes? I help you put on your shoes.
Do not fear, O son of David, for I am with you. I have called you by your name, and you are mine. I am with you, but now I am coming on you. For you must stand against the wiles of the enemy. I am coming for mine, and when I come, will I find faith?

Proverbs 4; Proverbs 24:5, 6, 21, 22
Psalm 23:1-3; Psalm 25
Isaiah 30:21; Isaiah 42:16, 17
I am the LORD your God. I will guide you in the way you should go. Come to Me, to My Word, for counsel. I will convince you by My Holy Spirit of righteousness. If you lack wisdom, ask.
Do not be deceived; rather learn to discern good from evil.
Do not let someone or something master you, have power over you, but let Me guide you. Be self-controlled, led by My Spirit.
My Words are spirit and they are truth. They will give you the way. I will make the way straight—a straight path for your feet—as you trust in Me. Proverbs 3:5-18
You will need greater discernment in the coming days. Follow the Lamb; beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. Proverbs 3:21-24
I will keep you. I am Savior and besides Me, there is no other. That includes all of you.
I will keep your foot from being snared as you make Me your confidence.
Come to the waters and drink of the fountain of life. I will lead you to the good.
Discover the beauties of holiness. My Holy Spirit desires to bless you and to be a blessing to you.
For all Israel -- Death crucified in Christ/Messiah, life out of death 1/24/14
. . .
Son of David, you will take a map of the entire region of what was originally given. Israel, the original map, from river to river. And you will draw death out of that entire region. You will command death to go to the cross of Jesus Christ. You will draw out the death, out of the people, out of the creation, the entire creation. And you will declare Heb. 2:14-17.
And you will go to Israel, and I will tell you where. You will take a seed, and you will plant it in the soil. And the seed will die. And out of it will come life. And you will declare the parable about the seed dying, but out of it coming life.
And you will command life to come forth, in Jesus' name. For I will be an oak tree of righteousness to my people. You will declare out the passage about a root, a root of Jesse, the branch coming out, the branch of righteousness, those passages. And the passage in Revelation, about being the Root and the Offspring of David. And you will declare to Israel, the passage, "Arise, shine, for your Light has come." And you will pray, where it says, "Arise O Lord, let your enemies be scattered." And you will declare out the passage... about the glory of the Lord filling... The earth being filled with the glory and knowledge of the Lord, the glory of the Lord and knowledge [of the glory of the LORD filling the earth]. You will declare that.
And finally, you will declare 2 Thess. 2. Satan has his day. I tell you, that day is limited. For I am coming. And I will shine forth, and I will shoot down my enemies. For even now I rule in the midst of my enemies. And I will strengthen the faith of my people. Is there a God in Israel? They will find out.
Now, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whose I am and whom I serve, I stand in my office as an apostle of Jesus Christ to the nations, as an apostle of the last judgment, as an apostle of purity to purify the people of God, and as an apostle of mercy, offering the scepter of mercy and peace, as the Lord wills, in Jesus' name. I release the anointing of the Holy Spirit now, for Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Israel, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Son of David, I am anointing you with an anointing of life. To carry my life into Israel, in Jesus' name. Remember the mustard seed.

As you come to Me, come expecting. Believe the words Jesus speaks. Believe Him, His statements, such as, “whatsoever you shall ask in My Name, I will do.” Cf John 14:11-14. Also, Mark 11:22-26.
Do you believe Jesus tells the truth? Then believe the truth Jesus tells.
For I tell you the days are coming, and are upon you, when people will not hear the truth. They do not hear because they do not want to obey the truth. John 3:16-21.
I do not deal exclusively with a nation, a people group; I deal with individuals. Christ has come. I deal with all kinds of people. I know your frame; I pity it. I remember you are but dust.
But I sent My Son in order that those I have given Him might live in relationship with Me. Peace has been made through the Blood of the Cross. You may enter My presence inasmuch as My Son has made access possible. I desire that you know Me, that you worship Me, and serve Me. In this I will benefit you; I will bless you for your good.
When you are hungry, you seek out food. You spend time planning what you will buy, eat, prepare, serve, etc. Spend time doing the same with Living Manna, spiritual food for the hungry soul.
When you are thirsty, you nearly gag for lack of moisture. I am the Living Waters who offers you the only satisfaction for a thirsty soul.
See beyond the horizon. Search for Me and you will find Me. Are you ready to meet Me?
Consider your ways. Do not fear when My Spirit convicts, convinces, and converts. Rejoice that I continue to strive with you. Rejoice that you are not abandoned to the side of the road. No discipline is pleasant. Hebrews 12:4-13. But the fruit is pleasing.
I am quiet in My love for you; I know you. Zephaniah 3:17. Be quiet before Me that you may know Me. Listen, and I will teach you. Discern My Voice.
When you are weak, I am strong. What is empty, I will fill with Myself. Will you empty a room for Me to fill? What about your mind? Your heart? Your body which is My Temple? I can deliver you from the Evil one. He is defeated even now.
Believe what is written in My Word. Let Me do all My good pleasure; but that will take trust.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22, 23.
Live by the Spirit and crucify the flesh with its passions and lusts. Restore one another gently so that you also are not tempted. Do not think more highly of yourselves than you should. Test your own actions. Do not deceive yourself into thinking you’re something when you aren’t.
Sow to please the Spirit. It is from the Spirit that you reap eternal life.
Don’t give up. Keep doing good in season and out of season, especially to the family of believers.
Bear with one another even as you bear your own burdens. You can listen. You can pray. You can help. You can encourage faith. You can remind people of Me. You may not be able to walk in another’s shoes; but you might be able to empty the sand in their shoes, the sand that’s made their walking unbearable.
I am He who only is wise. As you grow in My wisdom you can better minister to others I put in your path. Don’t get so lost in your own life that you become unaware of those around you. Who knows whether you have come to this position for such a time as this? Cf. Esther 4:14
Love one another. That is what life together is all about.
Friday, Feb. 7, 2014
Mine is a covenant of love (Nehemiah 1:5), and it is My desire to bring you to restoration and to bless you. You are blessed as you move into position to be blessed by Me.
That position is in My Son, Jesus Christ. As you stand in Him, I bless you.
If you started well but find yourself drifting, return. Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
If you are discouraged, take courage in Christ, for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Hold fast to what you have in Christ. Do not waver. Do not halt between two opinions, caving to circumstances and what you see with the visible eye. Look to the spiritual, to the promises I have given you. [Romans 4:13-25; 2 Corinthians 4:15-18] Again, do you believe I tell you the truth? Then believe the truth I tell you.
Do not be surprised as I come to build you into a glorious temple surrounded by the walls of salvation and the fire wall of the Holy Spirit.
All of chapter Isaiah 26 and Isaiah 60 (especially 60:18) for Jerusalem and Israel and the elect—also Zechariah 2:1-13.
I will tear down and I will build. I will make you a dwelling place for My glory. I will be your God and you will be Mine. I will possess you and no one will be able to redeem you away from Me. No one will be able to pluck you from My good hand and strong.
Therefore, be Mine and enjoy all that I am and all that I have given you in Christ Jesus. Rejoice in My care for you. Be glad as I sanctify you. James 1:2-4; 1 Peter 1:3-7, 13-21. Give thanks. I will see it. I will hear it. Let Me take joy in the work of My hands.
(For Mary Craig) Israel and the Last Judgment, My grace, Pray for laborers to be sent 2/21/14
You will go to Israel as a [sent one] of the Last Judgment, for I tell you My longsuffering, My patience is being tested and what shall I do? I see. I here.
What is man that I am mindful of him? He is made in My image, but his sin has separated him from Me. Yet in My grace I have spared many and been good to all, even the evil and the unthankful who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.
I see beyond today and tomorrow, even beyond the horizon. Yet I give room for repentance.
And how shall they hear [without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? (Rom. 10:14b, 15a)]. And who will go for us? [Isaiah 6:8] Pray for laborers in the harvest as the time grows short now.

The LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him. Habakkuk 2:20.
I hear you; and as you are preparing, know that I am prepared. I will fulfill My Word. I am the faithful God, maker of heaven and earth. I will be with you in battle. I will see you through. Do not fear. I am your God.
Friday, March 1, 2014
[Bible study was on Nehemiah 2:11-20.]
Arise and build, for I will rebuild your lives on the sure foundation of Christ and My Word. I will strengthen you and give you strong courage. As you repent and turn to Me, I will pour out My Spirit upon you to lead you in the paths of righteousness.
My Spirit is given to those who obey Him. Acts 5:32. As you take a step in the right direction, I will bless you. In this way, you will see that I see your heart and the fruit of it. As you do right, know that I am guiding and directing your steps. Soon what seems awkward at first will become a godly habit, the way of life.
Lay a strong foundation. Ephesians 3:14-19 [to pray]. Then when everything that can be shaken, is shaken, you will stand.
The problems you will have, will teach you to trust Me as well as trust in Me. You will learn endurance, patience, and the faith of Christ.
Remember, you may be the greatest enemy to the person you have been declared to be in Christ. Old ways die hard; but die they must if sin. Look to the replacement and rejoice. You have the Scriptures, full of examples, to encourage you. Look to the outcome of the lives of those who have gone before you. Hebrews 11.
I am not a “hope so.” I AM hope, a blessed and certain hope.
I will sanctify you. Remember, to be called to a task in the kingdom of God is not a sacrifice; it is a privilege. It is not the size of the task, but the faithfulness to it that is important. Remember Naaman. 2 Kings 5.
Let My Word and My Spirit motivate you to live n the abundance of life in Christ. I have provided. I have pitied. I will preserve. I will keep you. The door is open to the kingdom of God—peace, joy, and righteousness in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17, 18. I will meet you at the door. Revelation 3:20.
He that sits in the heavens laughs 3/7/14
. . .
For you, Lord God, are at war with Amalek from generation to generation.
O, lawless ones, have you not seen and have you not heard? The Lord is in his Holy Temple. Let all the earth keep silence before him. For I tell you, though you hide the standard, though you hide my word, but not in your heart, there is a sound, like A-440 (Hz), and it rings true. For O lawless one, you run around in your perverse ways, but that does not make the True go away. And you can socially construct reality, and he that sits in the heavens laughs. And you can conspire against the Lord and against his anointed. And he that sits in the heavens laughs. The voice of the Lord, by the clamor of evil, may be muted, but not refuted. I am coming, and I anoint to war.
Be strong, son of David. For there is not harmony in the spirit world, there is cacophony. There is noise. There is tension and distortion. And it is reaching my ears. And when I say, No more! I will bring it to resolution.
Death comes to all. Your life is in me. The blood, the blood. This year, Passover will be different 3/14/14
Death comes boldly. Death comes softly. Death comes suddenly. Death comes, eventually. Death comes to all. I have overcome death. Many will walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Many will fall, all around. Ps 91. Ps 23.
Be strong, son of David. Know the one in whom you believe. Do not faint. Do not grow weary. And do not fear. I see the sparrow fall. I see the grass wither and the flower fade. Number your days, son of David. If you can number the days of eternity. For I am the eternal God. Remember your life, is in me. And you will live and not die. You find that psalm - "I will live and not die." [Ps. 118, esp v17]
The blood, the blood. Who sent out the death? [pause] And who was passed over? [pause...] I tell you, this year, Passover will be different. Not in what it is. It has been ritualized to meaninglessness. Not this year.

To what will you turn and to whom will you go when the days grow dark and you find yourself groping for truth?
A cloud, a great cloud comes to cover your nation. It will roll in like the dust of a dust storm, a cloud of dust, as My Spirit blows across the land. It will be like horses charging, like locusts filling the sky. It will hang over the nation until I roar and yet another wind blows it away.
Rejoice, My people, for My Spirit is on the move. The winds will blow and I will ride the heavens in the fury of the Flame of Yah.
What do the oppressors to My people? What evil do they plot on their beds at night? What dreams do they entertain?
Do they not know? Has it not been told them? Isaiah 40:21-31; Isaiah 49:24-26; Psalm 82
Have I not spoken?
I am coming and who will be standing on the day of My appearing? 2 Peter 3:2-14.
Biting flies. God's protection of fresh oil. 3/21/14
Son of David, did you know I have eyes everywhere? But you know there is nowhere anyone can go from my Spirit. I am spirit. Without body, passions or lusts. And you must trust now, in the realm of the spirit. For only through spiritual eyes will you see the armies of heaven. LORD Sabaoth, Captain of the armies of heaven, the holy hosts of heaven.
The voices of Satan come like biting flies. Biting flies, pestering horses. Like biting flies. But I am the anointing. You find out -- how are horses protected from biting flies? Reply: "Oil." That which protects the horse from biting flies, I AM. And I am riding the wind. And horses are coming. And my horse - no biting flies.
Are you in me O son of David? Are you with me O son of David? Are you not a son of fresh oil? For many will be bitten by biting flies. On my people, O son of David, pour the oil. For they know not what you know. They could have known. And they should have known. For they do not know. For they look to the left and they look to the right. And I am on the straight path.
O Bethlehem, Bethlehem. Out of you, came a savior. A savior was born. O Bethlehem, you, called the City of David [Lk 2:4], what are you now? For in you I find people, who commercialize the great things that I have done. In you are people, who despise my holy name. Who despise my son. Who despise the heritage of my son.
And what will I do with you, Bethlehem? Some do not even call you anymore, a House of Bread. For the Living Bread came. A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And you may fight, on this hill and that and this place and that place, but now it is about truth and lies, and the souls of men. It is about; what will you do with my son?
Conspiracies and plots. And plans. But I am searching you out, Bethlehem. And there is no place you can hide from my Spirit. Out of you, Bethlehem came a baby. Infinite God. Infinite God-man. And in another city of David, a cross. Outside the camp.
You make covenants. Man to man. Covenants of death. [Is. 28:14-18] For only in the one you despise is life. But I am the living God. And I am coming to you, Bethlehem. True and righteous are my judgments. The winepress of the wrath of the Lamb, is ready. Are you ready Bethlehem?
Friday, March 28, 2014
The people rise up with great swelling words, their hearts proud, but their actions revealing the truth; there is none righteous, no, not one.
Do I desire such? I dwell with the humble and lowly, the meek and the yielded.
Do not bring curses upon yourselves. Rather, trust Me to bring to completion the good work I have begun in you. Trust Me to sanctify you, to glorify Myself in you, to cause you to follow the Lamb wherever He goes.
Life is in Me. Life is in the Spirit. I will fill you with My Spirit. I will establish you, comfort you, settle you, and give you peace. As you be the person I create you to be in My Son, you will do those good works you were created in Christ Jesus to do; those works which I prepared in advance for you to do. Ephesians 2:10, [1 Peter 5:10]
Come to the Living Waters and drink. Come to the Living Manna and eat.
Psalm 17 and think of Jesus as you hear.
Philippians the third chapter to Philippians 4:1.
Friday, April 4, 2014
You come before Me with your words. You speak of reforming your ways, of all you will now do. But I tell you great reforms are needed; and how will this be accomplished? Will your own hand do it? Will your own strength be enough?
You say you will set your mind to it; that you can do what you set your mind to. But I tell you I can expose your weakness. I can shake everything that can be shaken and see if what you way is so.
Alongside the Law of do or die run promises of believe and live. Has it not been from the beginning? But you do not see, nor are your ears open to it; and your heart must be turned in order to be healed.
Will you be made whole? You must be acted upon for your healing to happen; for wholeness to be your state.
Open to Me. Have I not set before you an open door? Let Me enter your heart that you might enter Mine. Believe the promises I have set before you in My Word.
I am a covenant-keeping God. I am the Faithful and True. I came; the Work is finished. I have done it. Now believe, that you may enter into life.
Where will this faith come from? From Me, the Author and the Finisher of your faith. I give it; I provide it. I nurture it. I complete it. I give you My Word.
I am coming 4/11/14
. . .
I am riding the wind! I will blow across the land. My feet, like burning brass. My eyes, as a flame of fire. [Rev 1:15, 2:18] I tell you, son of David, I am coming. And they will see whom they pierced. [Zech 12:10] And they - will - bow. [Isa 45:23, Rom 14:11] And they will say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD. [Mat. 23:39]

You go forth in the power of My Spirit. As the Father sent Me, so I send you—here and there—to do those things that please the Father and bring glory to His Name.
I have glorified My Father and He has glorified Me. Now go forth in the power of My Spirit to glorify the Father and testify of Me. Acts 1:8
By My Spirit I will lead you. As you know the Father and the Son, so you know the Holy Spirit. [To the extent that you know…so you know…] He dwells in you, in those who have received Him. John 1:12
Reckon yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Do not be slave to sin; do not let sin be your master. Rather, be led by the Holy Spirit and yield yourselves to obedience which leads to righteousness.
I am holy and I call you to be holy. I have adopted you. Be My child now and be as I am in those things in which I let you partake of the divine nature.
I will bless you as you seek Me, not for My gifts, but to know Me as a Person. Ask Me. Who gives eternal life to objects of wrath? Who dies that another might live in relationship with their Creator/Redeemer? What Person carries within them such love for enemies, for sinners, for people justly deserving eternal separation from the Source of all Life and Blessing?
Find Me in My Word. Find Me in My holy habitation. Find Me as you reach to Me with all of your heart and innermost being. Find Me as you stretch toward Me, yearning, desiring Me above all else.
This is eternal life, that you might know the One true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Who is the power of an endless life? Who is the power of the resurrection?
His Name is the Holy Spirit.
Note from Dr. Craig: I received this as we began our study, His Name is the Holy Spirit. Later, during our worship time, I heard from the LORD to have us “pray for the victims of your sin.” This was a turn-around for some, as usually we pray for our own healing and deliverance for each other and pray to be healed of wrongs done to us by others. The LORD touched the core of our beings as we did not “laundry list” our sins against God and others but rather prayed for those whom we had offended, hurt, sinned against, failed, betrayed, etc. Of course, as David by the Holy Spirit said, Against You and You only have I sinned; but this was a call to pray for God to heal the victims of our sin, including people, animals, and the creation. I believe God did this to let us taste and see a small portion of the extent of damage resulting from sin so as to know the love of God which is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us. Likewise, we caught a glimpse of the offensiveness of our sin to the Living God and the magnitude of His love in sending Jesus Christ to reconcile us to God and to save us from wrath through Him. (Romans 5:1-11)

Listen for My Voice. Listen to My Voice. Sometimes I speak in a still small voice. Sometimes I roar. Sometimes the sound is as thunder or as the Voice of many waters. Always I speak through My Word.
You must be quiet to hear. Be still and know that I am God. I will identify Myself in what I say to you.
I am the great communicator. I have spoken through My Son. Be ready to receive all that I have for you in Him.
Hear the Voice of the Good Shepherd and do not follow the strange voice, another wisdom leading to a false way. Do not give in to doctrines of devils.
Heed what I say. To obey is better than sacrifice.
Be faithful to the end, and I will give you the crown of life.

Come to living waters. You come to wells hewn by the hands of men to feed their flocks, who thirst. So also you seek the resources of the world, the resources of the Church, the resources of your own making as if these are Sources.
What happens when the wells run dry?
Come to living waters, the waters of life, and drink freely, without cost.
I am Living Waters and by My Breath you live. I blow across the land. I blow across the waters. Let Me breathe on you the Breath of Life.
Know Me as the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus. I am the Living Spirit. Life is in Christ. Believe in Him. Believe Him. Abide in Him.
The Word to you is: Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD Almighty. (Zechariah 4:6)
I am the Covenant LORD and I am Almighty. Is anything too hard for Me?
Come to Me and I will give you strength. Come to Me to find rest for your souls. Come to Me who supplies all of your needs according to the glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Where the river flows everything will live. Life is in Me. Life is in the Spirit.
The wells of salvation cannot be hewn by man. But I will cause you to abide in Me such that out of you will spring water welling up to eternal life.
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD Almighty.

Hag 1:4-8; Hag 2:7,8; Deut 8:17,18
Haggai 1:4-8 4 "Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses while this house lies desolate?"
5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider your ways!
6 "You have sown much, but harvest little; you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied; you drink, but there is not enough to become drunk; you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes."
7 Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider your ways!
8 "Go up to the mountains, bring wood and rebuild the temple, that I may be pleased with it and be glorified," says the LORD.
Haggai 2:7-9 7 'I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD of hosts.
8 'The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,' declares the LORD of hosts.
9 'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,' says the LORD of hosts, 'and in this place I will give peace,' declares the LORD of hosts."
Deut. 8:17-18 17 "Otherwise, you may say in your heart, 'My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth.'
18 "But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Come to the waters and drink freely. As you do, I will cleanse you with the washing of the water of the Word. I will fill you with Living Waters, the life of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.
Come to the Word to find the comfort of the Scriptures and hope, to find truth that you might be conformed to the image of Christ in truth.
Come to the wisdom of God, for Christ is the wisdom of God and My Spirit is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation. I will reveal Myself to you, not to be a god of your own mind or of your own understanding or of your own making, but as I am revealed; as I reveal Myself in My Word.
Gather your questions and bring them to Me. Ask, seek, and knock. I will open to you the good treasure of My Word.
Learn obedience to My will, to My Word, to My ways and I will bless you.
Friday, July 4, 2014
I am God the merciful God. See My heart of mercy as you come to My Throne of grace to obtain mercy and to find favor in your times of need.
I am the Spirit of Grace and Supplications. I supply your need as your God according to the riches of Christ Jesus.
Testify of My faithfulness to forbear with you in your times of trial. Count it all joy as you go through such times. Persevere. James 1:12ff. Praise Me for My longsuffering; that you are not consumed.
Look to the Author and Finisher of your faith knowing that without faith it is impossible to please Me. You must believe that I am and that I reward you when you diligently seek Me.
Find Me in the Word of Truth. Believe Truth. Trust Me to do exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think according to My power working in you.
I will bear you up on the wings of eagles. I will bring you to My high places.
Hold fast that you might inherit the kingdom of God as co-heir with Christ. As I hold fast to you, hold fast to Me.
I will come to you and show you great and mighty things you know not of.
I know the plans I have for you—for your welfare and for your good. Together we will do exploits. (Daniel 11:32 KJV) Resist the devil. Submit to Me.
I am the Almighty, and My armies are in battle formation. Be strong. Do not forsake Me. Run into Me. I am your Shield and exceeding great reward.
I am a God at war 7/4/14
They set off their rockets; they set off their fireworks. They are warmongers; they like the sounds of war. But I tell you, I am a God at war. I am at war for the souls of My people. And I will find My people and I will bring them in, from the North, the South, the East, and the West. I will gather them. For I am their Savior and I am their LORD. My ways are not their ways, for I am a God who strikes the heart. I am a God who cuts to the heart. I am a God who opens the eyes of the blind and opens the ears of the deaf. I open the graves; I turn the hearts to Me, to return to Me.
I AM the Resurrection and the Life. Now come out of your graves, My people; come out of your graves.
Watch Israel now. Everything will go according to my word, and my will, and my plan. 7/4/14
Son of David, watch Israel now. For you are starting to see the results of this last mission. Know that I am in it. For everything will go according to my word, and my will, and my plan.
Evil in the world restrained by the Spirit of grace -- Put away evil, pray God's word. 7/11/14
Your soul cries out to Me about pain, the evil in the world: the animals, the children, the weak, the oppressed.
But you must know that the evil is yet restrained by the Spirit of grace operating on the earth; it is not as bad as it could be nor is it as bad as men want it to be as they plot evil on their beds at night. They plot, they conspire, they dream of how to deceive; what lies they can propagate, what they can destroy. [Psalm 2; Psalm 35:20; Psalm 36:4; Micah 2:1; Proverbs 14:22] They delight to do evil for their own selfish ends. Everything suffers under the bondage of sin.
Put away the evil from you. Have no part in it or with it. Separate yourselves unto Me. [Deuteronomy 21:21; Ecclesiastes 11:10; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:6-8]
Evil will have its day. It will increase as the man of sin rises. 2 Thessalonians 2
I am watching, and for some, I in My mercy take them to end their suffering [Isaiah 57:1]; others are rescued from the traps and snares of the evil one. [2 Timothy 2:25, 26; Psalm 91; Psalm 124; Psalm 141]
You must walk circumspectly now, being wise and yet innocent. Remember that the counterfeit holy spirit works through the law for selfish destructive ends. So watch the laws being passed and those being proposed. [Psalm 94:20; Psalm 119:121-128; Ephesians 5:15]
Wickedness increases as righteousness fades and history is re-written. Righteousness exalts a nation, but a nation that loses its foundation falls. [Proverbs 14:34; Matthew 7:24-27] Make certain you do not fall into pits you have dug for yourself. [Psalm 7:15]
Where will you find safety? Only in Me. I am with you to prevail in every circumstance. Thank Me in every circumstance for this is My will for you. [1 Thessalonians 5:18]
Do not return insult for insult. Do not fall into the patterns of the world. Be gracious and do good. [Micah 6:8] You may not see the immediate result of it, but there is a ripple effect. [1 Peter 3:9; Romans 12:1, 2; Galatians 6:9]
Speak My Word into every circumstance for My Word is powerful and can change things. Listen to Me. Listen for Me. [Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 81:8; Matthew 17:5; John 10:27]
You must no longer just watch news, events, happenings. You must speak TRUTH into these events. Love the Truth and speak the Truth of My Word into the events, the news, the situations happening in the world. [2 Thessalonians 2:7-10; Zechariah 8:16; Ephesians 5:11]
One thing affects another. It is not a labor in vain. Do not just think and live in your own little world surrounded by walls of selfishness. Build the walls of salvation strong. Enlarge your vision. Get out of your “self” and enter/live in Me, in My kingdom, with My perspective. Find your place and do the Father’s will for you. Start with the obvious and I will make the rest plain. Think of Moses and others who came to Me with their reasons in opposition—no excuses. [Isaiah 60:18; Exodus 3; Matthew 7:21-23; Romans 12:2; 1 Corinthians 12:12ff]
I have a controversy with My people who have lost their way and with it, their freedom. They think like a man and have not the thoughts of God. To them I say, be spiritually-minded and put to death the deeds of darkness and death. [Galatians 5:1; Matthew 16:23; 1 Corinthians 2:6-16; Romans 8:1-17; Romans 6]
Pray that I raise up a Deliverer—but have I not raised up Christ as the Deliverer of My people? Yet My people do not walk in the paths of righteousness to the restoration of their souls. [Psalm 1; Psalm 23; Psalm 18:2; Nehemiah 9:27; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; John 3:36]
Come to the waters and live. For parched is the ground; but in Me you find Living Waters that satisfy. Come to Me and not to the wells of tradition, man-made wells. I am Living Waters; I am En Gedi. I fill the thirsty soul. [John 4:13-15; John 7:37-39; Revelation 21:6; Revelation 22: 1, 17; Isaiah 44:3; Jeremiah 2:13; Revelation 7:16, 17; Isaiah 58:11; Isaiah 55:1, 2; Isaiah 12:3; Ezekiel 47:8-10]
Watch Me now for I am arising and I will shine. [Isaiah 60:1] I will expose. [Ecclesiastes 12:14; 1 Corinthians 4:5; Ephesians 5:13; Jeremiah 23:24; Mark 4:22; Psalm 90:8]
I love My people and I have not forgotten them. [Psalm 94; Isaiah 49]
And My fury will go forth now for My Name’s sake; for I am great and greatly are you to exalt Me in your praise. Be on My side; otherwise you will not rightly understand what I do now. [Psalm 48; Psalm 145; Jeremiah 30:22-24; Isaiah 42:12-17; Nahum 1; Exodus 32:26]
Word to Mauritius, Seychelles, Africa, and its islands 7/11/14
The drums will beat and they will sound the alarm to no avail. For again, I am coming to you, Africa, to your islands. And I will see, and I will judge with righteous judgment. Repent…for your idols will not save you; your money will not save you; your magical thinking will not save you; your charms and your jingles and your beads and your cuisine will not save you.
Reading the leaves of tea will not save you, tea leaves. For even the isles and the coastlands are Mine and nothing is out of the reach of the Almighty. And no one escapes “the Great and Terrible Day of the LORD.” To which judgment seat will you go? There is only one way to the Judgment Seat of Christ. Ah, yes, but I am the Sovereign LORD. Watch out! For some on your islands are close to blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Step back! For the counterfeit will not save you either. I tell you, truth is marching right to you.
Unity in the Holy Spirit, dangerous times 7/25/14
I am the Holy Spirit and I expect you to dwell together in unity even as I dwell together in unity with the Father and the Son.
Come together for the cause of Christ. Come together in one mind as you pray. Be orderly. Strive for fellowship in Me, the Holy Spirit.
These are dangerous times for you. But know that in every century believers have been challenged to keep the faith, to guard and defend the calling of their salvation. [2 Timothy 1:2, 13,14]
In you is deposited a treasure, a treasure of truth, the treasure that is Jesus Christ and His gospel. Do not be ashamed of the gospel of grace because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). Do not despise the great work of salvation.
Persevere and trust Me to give you courage, to preserve your soul, to enable you to stand and not stumble or fall. [Jude 24,25] Trust Me to empower you. Listen to My Voice, My Word; that you may walk in wisdom and in love and in truth.
Evil is spoken of as good and good, as evil. Let Me define what is good and what is evil lest you be deceived and your thinking become topsy-turvy. Be sober, to think soberly. Learn the mind of Christ. Only by knowing the true will you spot the counterfeit, the lie, the error, whoredoms. [definition of "topsy-turvy": upside down, inside out, inverted, in utter confusion]
You cannot “muscle” others to repent, convert, or change their ways as some seek to do. Learn how I operate. Fear the LORD and not men.
See beyond your “self,” beyond your own life. See beyond the horizon. See what is NOT being said. Ask Me to expose the hidden that truth may emerge and light not be hidden under a bushel.
You will find Me in the Word I “spired” [breathed]. You will find Me dwelling within you. You will find that there is no place where I am not. Psalm 139. I am near. I am the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the spirit of the Father, the Spirit of holiness, the Holy Spirit.
My Church 9/5/14
Friday, September 5, 2014
At home right before Craighouse Bible Study
You ask, What is the Holy Spirit saying to the churches, but I tell you tonight that I have spoken to the churches [Revelation 2 and 3]; yet they do not obey My word. I teach them out of My Word and yet they denounce My authority, My lordship. So I say:
Choose you this day whom you will serve. [Joshua 24:15] If the LORD is God, serve Him. [1 Kings 18:21]
For you obey the one you believe to be true. Let God be true and every man a liar. [Romans 3:4]
My Church chases words until they find the words to which they agree—comfortable words, so they need not repent, change their ways, conform to Christ.
Do I not give courage to overcome? But there are cowardly, driven by their own pleasures.
My Church today compromises, allows itself to be corrupted, and is lukewarm [Revelation 2 and 3]. Some sing of fire. If My fire fell, how many would be consumed? [Deuteronomy 4:24; Hebrews 12:29] Yet I give room for repentance. [e.g., Revelation 2:21] For I have a Day of Vengeance coming, and who will stand before the Reckoning? [Isaiah 51:2; Isaiah 63; Isaiah 34:8]
[There is a difference between the visible church, comprised of both believers and unbelievers, and the invisible church, comprised of the Redeemed/Elect ones. Only those in Christ, who by faith and in repenting of their sin have their sins forgiven and receive eternal life and the Holy Spirit, escape the wrath of the Almighty. Jesus Christ bore this wrath, even as He bore the sins of those given to Him by the Father, and even as He bore the curse. The dead, the small and the great, will stand before God at the great white throne. (Revelation 20:11) Those that are Christ's will stand before Him at the Judgment Seat of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:10) God will take vengeance in righteous judgment. (2 Thessalonians 1:1-8)]
Look to the rock from which you are hewn. [Isaiah 51:1] Cleanse the cisterns and seek living waters instead of your man-made wells. [Jeremiah 2:13]
Your wells will dry up and you will find yourselves thirsty; for the water will not quench your thirst and your bread will not satisfy your bellies. I am the Living Bread. Heed My Words—John 6.
Yes, yes, you say, when you listen to Scripture. But you walk out as you came in.
A famine, a famine of the Word; teeth so clean for no food. How will you live? What of Me is in you? Abide in Me and let Me abide in you. John 15
I call My Church to repentance. Before Me you will account. Before Me you will stand or fall. Get the log out of your own eye.
And rejoice that I do not deal with you as your sins deserve. [Psalm 103:10] For I am God the gracious God, full of loving-kindness, goodness, mercy, truth; a God of justice and holy. I love with an everlasting love and mete out righteous judgments. Just and true are My judgments. [Exodus 34:6; Jeremiah 31:3; Psalm 19:9; Revelation 19:2]
And yes, I am not some “ancient word” as some sing, though I am the Ancient of Days. [Daniel 7:9, 13, 22] My Name is Word of God. [Revelation 19:13] Learn what that means in your life.
If you have breath tonight, praise the LORD. [Psalm 150]
Friday, Sept. 19, 2014
What do you do when circumstances loom over you like a dark, thick cloud? Do you run and hide? Do you cower in a corner, overtaken with fear? Do you rock back and forth in anxiety?
For I tell you some will want the rocks to fall on them. Some will hide in the crags of the rocks and the mountains. Some will flee. Some will stay and fight.
How will you overcome, and in whose name? What will guide you, strengthen you, and move you to higher ground?
Yours is a proud and rebellious nation seeking to triumph over what is to your leaders, a proud and rebellious, even treacherous and evil nation rising to power. Demons fight demons for supremacy and territory. King spirits fight, as do princes of darkness, principalities and powers and rulers of darkness.
Do not enter this conflict and fight according to the mind of natural man, according to the ways of the kingdoms of this world. They have the capacity to destroy each other and the Living God has the capacity to destroy those who destroy the earth.
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our LORD and of His Christ. The prince of this world came and has nothing in Christ. John 14:30. The weapons of your warfare, you who are in Christ, are not carnal, but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5.
Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God. Is the Arm of the LORD too short to save? Can He not reach into your circumstances and place you above them?
Trust Me now in this and proclaim My excellencies, My majesty, My glory. Think about Me, who I am, what I have spoken, what I have promised, what guidance I give in My Word.
Do not falter, but if you do, return to Me and I will return to you.
As I am gracious to you, return that grace in thankfulness for My goodness to you.
Rest and breathe.
I am the Standard, the Breaker, the Paraclete and Comforter. I am He and besides Me there is no Savior. I AM THAT I AM. I meet you at the point of your need—sufficiently. Meet Me in the glory of My Presence.
Prayer received to pray for each one who came:
1. Wash us clean from every false way as we proclaim your excellencies, your mighty power, for who has known the Arm of the LORD and who will stand in His Presence?
2. Cast out the goddess, the counterfeit Holy Spirit, from us.
Note: in the study for this night, we looked at God’s mighty power as defined in the Greek words megaleiotes, brachion, megaleion, and arete. If you listen to this message, the word received will have more meaning. Doing the "handout sheet" will help you even further inasmuch as Diana of Ephesus, a goddess spirit, was considered "magnificent" and Arete is the name of a Greek goddess with whom the world of that time was quite familiar. What is important is to see how the Apostles as inspired by the Holy Spirit overcame these goddess spirits. Our warfare methods must come from the Word, to which we look for Wisdom; and not from the world. Mary Craig

Be not doubting, but believe. For I hold you in My Hand; My Righteous Right Hand upholds you. Isaiah 41:10.
Be comforted in this: that your names are written in the Lamb’s book of Life. Luke 10:18-20. You are secured by and only through the work of My Son, who loved you and gave Himself for you.
Be forgiving even as you have been forgiven. Ephesians 4:32. Confess your sins and I will cleanse you. 1 John 1:9.
Even as My love is shed abroad in your heart, so also love one another. Romans 5:5, 8.
Romans 15:5, 6
Friday, Oct. 10, 2014
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8; 1 Peter 2:1-3; Psalm 119:103
Do not despise My rebuke for I love you with an everlasting love. I see the end from the beginning. I know you and I desire for you the best.
Heed the warnings of My Word for they are there to profit you. I am conforming you to the image of Jesus Christ. Learn of Him.
I have revealed much of Myself to you. I have laid My heart before you; My purposes, My plan for your salvation. I will withhold no good thing from you whose walk is blameless. Psalm 84
As I kept Abimelech from sinning (Genesis 20:6), so also I can keep you. [Read Genesis 20 to get this in perspective.]
Sow the righteousness of Christ [sow to the Spirit]. Galatians 6:8 For only in Christ may you say you are holy, blameless, and above [beyond] reproach. Colossians 1:21-23
1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24
Learning to be Content
Philippians 4:11-13, 17, 19, 20
1 Timothy 6:3-11, 17-19

Learning to be Content
Philippians 4:11-13, 17, 19, 20
1 Timothy 6:3-11, 17-19
Cease striving with Me, murmuring, and complaining; but come with thankful hearts for who I am.
I am on your side.
I am for you.
I am faithful to keep Covenant with you.
I am the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings, and Lord of lords.
I am He who supplies and cares for you.
Be content in what you have; what I have given you.
Godliness with contentment is great gain. Do not think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
Change your focus by pursuing righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith.
Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called.
I am He who gives life.
How do you define life? How do I?
Therein you will discover the answers you seek.
Friday, November 14, 2014
You [plural] are going through various trials. Count it all joy as your faith is tested, as I seek to verify that you acknowledge Me, My Truth, My ways, as just and righteous.
I am coming for a holy Bride, mature. I would that you be full of My Holy Spirit. Let yourselves be sanctified. Rejoice in the process. Rejoice in every repentance unto life.
My Spirit is moving in your midst, in the midst of My people, to purify, to sanctify, to prepare you to live with Me forever. Mine is a heart to restore, but who among you will say to Me: Restore!
My desire is to live in a face-to-face relationship with you in a love without a lie, without hypocrisy, without harm. Mine is a holy love and I call you to remember 1 Timothy 1:5.
Now the end of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
Fight the good fight of the faith. Build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Keep yourselves in God’s love. Abide in Me as I abide in you.
I am the faithful God who draws you to Christ, to living waters. I uphold you. Isaiah 43:1-7. I provide living waters.
Proclaim My praise.
Proclaim My Word.
Proclaim Jesus Christ.
Proclaim the gospel of Christ.
To all your generations, proclaim My love, My truth, My grace.
Be exceedingly joyful in the good work I am doing in you. I have you in the grip of My Strong Right Arm, in the grip of My irresistible grace.
Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus, for the days are numbered, and when your obedience is complete, I will do the right thing, render a just decision, move you in the path of righteousness for My Name’s sake.
[What follows was for Mary Craig, but it applies to every believer.] Remember, if it’s from Me nothing can stop it, nothing can truly hinder it, nothing can truly resist Me. I finish what I start. If it’s from Me, then it will NOT fail. I AM.
Word for 2015 12/5/14
2015 will be a year of frustration. As My people seek to build and rebuild, those in opposition will rise up as in Ezra to discourage and make them afraid to go on. They will seek to frustrate their plans and thwart any progress. Ezra 4:4, 5
But no one will frustrate Me. Isaiah 44:24-28. I will accomplish all I please. I will prevail. I will fight for My people. I will gather them in and protect them. I will surround them with My love and establish them in My righteousness. Will I find faith on the earth?
I will tell you of this year. You must hide in Me and put no other gods before Me. Do not squander what you have, but live wisely. Do not fear moving in compassion and generosity, but sanctify Me as Lord. Sanctify Me and do not fear intimidation as the evil schemes and plots. Trust Me, for I care for Mine.
Live having integrity. Seek sanctification and do not despise the chastening of the Lord.
Go through your days circumspectly, knowing and perceiving the time, being innocent as doves but wise as serpents. Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth…Matthew 10:34-39.
All of Mine will suffer, but see that you do not suffer for doing wrong. 1 Peter 3:8-22.
Rejoice and be glad as you see the Day approaching. Be exceeding glad that your names are written in heaven. Make your calling and election sure.
[The Scriptures referred to are not mere references, but part of this “word.” Dr. Craig]
Word for 2015, Part 2 12/12/14
2015 will be a year of victory for those who have been seeking My face, for those who bless Me, bringing to Me their sacrifices of praise and offerings of their thankfulness, who honor Me with their lives and substance.
I will hear them when they cry out to Me and I will answer them. I will give them gifts of eternal value and I will show them great and mighty things they know not of.
I will be with them and will break the bow of the enemy and take up My sword against the enemies of their souls. I will give men in exchange for their souls and I will show Myself strong.
Those who have sought Me and put their trust in Me I will seek out and not disappoint. I will restore the years the locust has eaten and redeem the time. Though they walk through the valley of death, though wind and flood threaten to undo them, I will prevail that they overcome.
I am the LORD the Mighty One who saves, your Mighty Hero, Commander of the Armies of Heaven. And to you whom I have addressed, I will set free.
I am riding on the clouds of heaven and I will take you to My high places. I will instruct you, even in the night seasons, and I will never leave you or forsake you.
My love will carry you. My love will enfold you in My glory. My love will sustain and strengthen you. And in My love I will fight for the lives of My children and prevail. I will have the victory, no man stopping Me.
