An Exhortation for Spirit-Led Writers God Keeps Confirming

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

2 CHRONICLES 16:9

I adore this verse and the picture it paints of our good Father. God is always actively looking upon the hearts of man for those who are utterly surrendered to Him so He can use them to the fullest for His glory.

“Will it be you?” the Lord says.

Earlier today, I read, this post, DID YOU KNOW CHRISTMAS WAS A WEAPON? by Mario Murillo. Very worth the read. It’s not only about Christmas as spiritual warfare but an exhortation for His writers.

In it Murillo reminds us of the powerful story, A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, and he speaks powerful words that His writers can take to heart:

“Because God came upon a famous novelist like Charles Dickens, the devil was blindsided. What if you are supposed to create something no one has seen before?

Finally, the idea that we need to tone anything down to win souls is hogwash. Johnny Cash comes to mind. It is truly amazing the influence he carried. Bob Dylan, Elvis, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones revered him. Yet, he never muted his faith or his witness. God gave him a sound the world couldn’t resist.

A heart filled with love for God and hatred for evil, who is willing to be completely open to do something new is our greatest need today. God is searching to drop original miracles on someone like you.”

Similarly, the Holy Spirit led me to write this in a recent blog post: “The world doesn’t need easy, palatable, all inclusive messages. They need His power – the absolute non-watered down truth of His Word, words of fire from the Holy Spirit that are life, living water, etc. to them.

That these words BYPASS the mind and pierce hearts and spirits, so we do not write for the intellect but for souls, the spirit man, and hearts. Thus, we don’t write for what is natural (AKA temporal) but for what is eternal.”

The Lord needs vessels who are willing to be used for His glory to share His undiluted, powerful truth and fire through their fingertips.

Will you answer, “yes,” to His call?

“Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it,” (Habakkuk 2:2).

People will run in obedience to the Lord, towards their healing, towards Jesus, etc. at the reading of the Spirit-led words and stories He desires to give His “whosever wills.”

“My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer,” (Psalm 45:1).

Is your pen at the ready for the Lord? Praise God for He is ready to pour miraculous works and irresistible words into ready writers and their pens and keyboards. All glory to the Lamb of God!

PROPHETIC WORD for Spirit-led, Christian Writers: Writing for What is Eternal (with Confirmation)

“For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal,” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

From an email I sent to a fellow Spirit-led, Christian writer on November 29, 2020, 1:22PM:

“In my prayer time today, I heard the Lord say that for far too long, many American churches (not all) have been serving people/His people, what they believe to be a “palatable” Jesus in an effort to be “inclusive.”

This is not of God of course. That a great many, right in our very churches, and listening to Christian ministers, are still hungry and thirsty, for it’s difficult to find places and people to learn from where they truly “serve” Jesus by whose living water we are fully satisfied. The world is starving and thirst greatly because they are searching and searching and can’t find what they are missing, but when they find it they will know.

The world doesn’t need easy, palatable, all inclusive messages. They need His power – the absolute non-watered down truth of His Word, words of fire from the Holy Spirit that are life, living water, etc. to them.

That these words BYPASS the mind and pierce hearts and spirits, so we do not write for the intellect but for souls, the spirit man, and hearts. Thus, we don’t write for what is natural (AKA temporal) but for what is eternal.

He gave this word to me as a writer which He called me as many years ago, and since you are also called in this way, I thought it would minister to you.

And Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, whatever my God says, that I will speak.” (2 Chron 18:13)” [end]

Then, last night on 11/30/2020 at around 10:50PM, I was watching a pray for our nation livestream, and a woman prophesied this:

“Watch for the dreams and the visitations in the night hours because they will bypass the mind and go Spirit to spirit. You can watch and listen to it here.

I made a point in the email to make the word “BYPASS” in all caps because that’s what was highlighted to me and is important to be in awe of God by as well.

What. Are. The. Odds? They can only be God’s!

She mentions dreams and visions but the Lord is saying it’s all of the above as we each prophecy in part. Through Spirit-led words, visions, dreams, He is speaking Spirit to spirit to people and will give us the right words at the right time for the thirsty.

Check out: Christian Freelance Writer, Remember: You Are NOT of This World which can apply Word wise for any writer in the Lord for the right words at the right time, etc.

You see, He’s also telling us in this it’s not by might or our own intellectual might but by HIS Spirit [Zechariah 4:6] that we do all things, that the true “effect” on the lost and His people comes from Him – His Word is Spirit, and when we let it loose and don’t water it down, IT, not us or our “brilliance” reaches people.

“Be renewed in the spirit of your mind,” (Ephesians 4:23).

We reach what is eternal – spirit, soul, the heart first with what is Spirit – the Word and the words He gives us – then the mind follows and is renewed, souls are saved, His light is able to shine of them and break off the darkness and demonic blindness that they see and get set free.

At times, His people can think they are too big for their Holy Ghost britches and try to do things without Him, even quenching Him, thinking they are so smart and can win people with programs and great ideas.

But it is the power of God working through willing, surrendered vessels with hearts fully bowed down to the Lord who allow His living water to flow to others whom He uses to get people free – BOOM – straight to the spirit. What is eternal!

I’ve been writing for YEARS, and never in my life has the Lord made revelation to me that the words He gives me will bypass the mind and be Spirit to spirit. And that I write for what is eternal.

Wow! I love it, Lord! So beautiful, Lord. You are Beautiful! Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! You are the Best Abba Father ever. Faithful to speak a word in due season.

“And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!” (Proverbs 15:23)

I pray this was a great blessing and encouragement to you. There’s nothing better in life than full surrender to our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of His life giving, healing Holy Spirit flowing to others.

Screenshot of the original email just for fun. For what’s more fun than the things of God? Nada, nothing, el zilcho.

Christian Freelance Writer, Remember: You Are NOT of This World

We should aim to continually improve our writing craft. And can do so by gleaning tips from other freelance writers’ books, blogs, and teaching videos. But only with discerning eyes and ears.

Recently, I came across the writings and teachings of a few freelance copywriters. Within minutes, my Holy Spirit surrendered senses rejected their methods. Puffed up and boasting in their psychological manipulation tactics. Teaching that your writing must “seduce” its reader. And using scarcity-driven manipulation intended to frighten readers into purchasing the wares of their clients.

I didn’t get too far into these writings and teachings before the Spirit of God in me said, “Not for you, My daughter. My ways are life. The world’s ways are death.”

Psalm 55:21 says, “The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; His words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.” This verse sounds a lot like what I saw coming from those freelance copywriting instructors.

God wants His blessings to flow to you AND your clients.

So, dear brother or sister, worldly methods are not for you and not of God. But you get to choose. What will it be, His beloved child?

An example of the bad fruit of God’s people using worldly methods is looking at the state of the church and its rapid decline over the years. I believe one of the main contributors to its decline was its adoption of unnecessary, worldly techniques and programs in a great many congregations. The devil set his “depend on the arm of flesh” trap and caught many of God’s very elect in it. By doing so, they became attraction-centered instead of Christ-centered. They exhausted themselves working to draw and keep members. How the Lord must have grieved watching His children depart from the solid rock of His Word.

In their toiling to be relevant, they sucked the life out of their ministries and selves by forsaking the life-giving ways of His Holy Word. The perfect instructions He already laid out for them in it. They opted for striving instead of thriving. For death instead of life.

Faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, the Word, and absolute dependence on the unquenched Holy Spirit was everything they ever needed to succeed. But they rejected His ways out of fear.

I can see how this may have also contributed to leaders we’ve seen falling away from the church and renouncing their faith. Imagine the daily disillusionment they faced year after year in a church that chose death instead of life. Their role a lifeless cog in a machine instead of one burning with the love and fire of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

When I considered this topic more, I saw that when God’s people turn to worldly methods, they are doing so based on fear and unbelief. Not believing His promises are what He says they are – “Yes and amen,” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

The other day, I was listening to a minister who exemplified dependence on God and rejecting worldly methods. The fruit of him choosing life eventually reaped massive blessings and favor upon his ministry. He told this story…

Many years ago, a fundraising organization contacted him. They promised to help him raise $1 million in a short amount of time citing recently raising over $20 million for another ministry. They guaranteed they could help him as well. But after listening to their plan, he rejected their dishonest methods.

Their tactics included straight up lies. They wanted him to say he supported orphanages in Africa. Then, they’d circulate fundraisers containing images of starving children with swollen bellies. Well, he didn’t support any orphanages in Africa and said he wouldn’t do anything dishonest to raise money. This didn’t phase the shady fundraising company who then said, “Well, it worked for the other minister. It doesn’t matter how you get the money.” Read that again.

That company did not fear the Lord. Then further tempted implying, “The other CHRISTIAN minister did it, then it should be okay with you too.” Can you believe their demonic audacity? After, he’d refused their tactics, the enemy attempted once more to entrap him for his destruction. He again said, “No way!” And told them to, “Get out!”

Praise God! He chose life, and the Lord blessed him abundantly for it. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart,” (Galatians 6:7-9).

Beautiful Christian freelance writer, remember, God’s people have something the world does not – His indwelt Holy Spirit. And that infinitely wise “sixth sense” will reject worldly words and programs. Let “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” inspire your writing. You and your clients will succeed in the only way that matters – what’s right in our Father’s eyes.

These promises and reminders are for you, Christian freelance writer.

Simply take God for His Word by faith. Never fear walking in all His ways. Including for your Christian freelance writing business’s growth and prosperity. No shortcuts or shady tactics needed. Then reap blessings and the good fruit from what you’ve sown.

You’re a writer. And what do writers need? Words. The right ones at the right time. Well good news because Abba Father has your back:

“For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say,” (Luke 12:12). When you sit down to write, pray. Tell the Lord you are dependent upon His Holy Spirit, and ask Him to bless you with wisdom and the right words for your client. He will help you, pour verses, principles, and creative ideas into you that bless you and those you serve.

“Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist,” (Luke 21:14-15). Your clients’ readers aren’t adversaries, of course. But the same Holy Spirit is available anytime to give you wisdom and irresistible words you can stand by. And let you sleep at night.

“The Lord God has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned,” (Isaiah 50:4). The prophet Isaiah spoke of Jesus here, but this is for you too. As it is written, “As Jesus is, so are we in this world,” (1 John 4:17). You don’t have a mini me Holy Spirit. The same Holy Spirit Jesus depended on while He ministered on the earth dwells in you. Out of YOUR belly shall flow rivers of living water to the thirsty (John 7:38).

“They were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he (Stephen) spoke,” (Acts 6:10). Seek to become Word and Spirit dependent in all you do to reap its blessed fruits. Godly wisdom and words that draw people with a pure heart and in truth.

Other important promises to remember as a Christian Freelance Writer:

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death,” (Proverbs 14:12).

“Direct my steps by Your Word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me,” (Psalm 119:133).

“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted,” (Matthew 23:12).

“God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble,” (James 4:6).
