Holy Spirit, lead me | For accountability to the Lord

I highly recommend regular times of refreshing with the Lord, getting off social media, including blogging to seek Him and hear from Him clearly without the influence of others, etc. My recent doing so bore much fruit, the Lord rewarding me almost immediately upon my declaring my intentions to Him.

These past months, the elections have consumed much of my time, thoughts, and prayers. Though, I’m certain it was needed for we stand in the gap for the Lord to bring His will into the earth through our prayers. And, being a believer and not a doubter, I will not stop praying for justice for those who’ve wronged America and President Trump. For our republic to be restored to God’s original intentions for it before He catches us up with Him as well as acting on my faith with calls to actions and networking with believers who also refuse to bow to Baal in America.

But during my seeking Him, I sought Him for balance in what I believe He considers to be my ministries unto Him. I found my my heart ached to write and teach about divine healing, faith, and miracles.

With the Holy Spirit’s help, I pray He leads me each week on how to divide my time amongst the passions He’s etched into my heart and soul. When to write about the state of the church in America, calls to actions, and faith and healing, etc.

I am so passionate about being a defender of the name of the Lord and clearing His namesake from religious doctrines in the church which falsely accuse him of the works of the devil in the earth, deny the power of the Holy Spirit today as well as the atoning blood of Jesus Christ and its power to heal. How? By focusing on and magnifying His truth more than the lies and the traditions of man which make the very Word of God to no effect. Don’t. Even. Get. Me. Started.

For accountability to the Lord

To keep me accountable to the Lord, I’m sharing this here more for Him and me than anyone else.

I purchased two domain names

  1. swordinkedhearts.com
  2. swordinkedbooks.com

…which are based on these verses: “The sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,” (Ephesians 6:17), and “I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people,” (Hebrews 9:10).

The first one is the He gave me for my ministry, and the second one for my ebookshop.

I will forward the first one to a category and the second one to an online digital goods and bookstore. I have no idea what any of this is supposed to look like, but I love Jesus like crazy, desire to live for Him, and to fulfill every purpose and plan He as for my life for His glory and to help set captives free in His name.

When He leads, even when I don’t know the entire plan, I like to step out in faith in some way to demonstrate that faith and show Him I’m taking Him seriously, THEN, He often rewards me with the next step, wisdom nugget or gem, etc.

Okay, Lord, You got my attention. I’m all Yours. Whom else is there besides You? What joy is there apart from You?

Help me get out of Your way, so I can be a free flowing conduit of Your love, power, and glory in the earth in Your name and for Your glory for the saving of the lost, the healing of the sick, the casting out of demons, the raising of the dead.

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.
