Faith that in the beginning is no bigger than a mustard seed, can and will flourish and prosper inwardly.
Eventually this Seed becomes the Tree of Life, inwardly.
Life is summed in three words, Faith, Hope, & Love.
Faith, Hope & Love, all of, and all in Christ.
For it is by His Faith we have the Hope of glory, and this is to live by His Nature, which is Love.

Faith that in the beginning is no bigger than a mustard seed, can and will flourish and prosper inwardly.
His ever beckoning call is to “come to Me”, this is the foundation to Life, and all that Life pertains to.
We must be willing to let go, in order to come in, for our holding on to what we see, believe or have been taught, is holding us captive, all because it is less than what He is calling us into. It is the equivalent of Egypt in comparison to the Land of Promise.
In order to come in to Him, we must by His Spirit be released from what is known, and open unto His wooing call.
Coming in is a continual experience, one that is opening our hearts in ways we could have never imagined, the depths of which are beyond human expression.
In His calling we walk in a renewing state of Oneness, in a state of receptive openness to His presence, and His desire to bring us higher into His very Life.
It is from our darkness that He calls into His Light.
From the heart of darkness, Light springs forth…
““Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I AM doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I AM making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:18, 19
True wealth is found by letting go, releasing what was for what is. We must see that our sight is incomplete, that it is just enough to have brought us this far. His calling is always into the unknown of the known.
Peter, James and John were granted a glimpse of the unknown. Peter’s response was to “set up camp”, yet this was not the intent. The intent was to open their hearts to receive more than before, to move higher in their walk into Spirit and Truth.
We must be willing to let go of the incomplete to receive deeper completion. This is His Way into deeper Truth and more abundant Life.
My friend posted this on her website, it is of such deep value I’d like to share this with you.
“~ In 1985 I heard a voice within me say …. “Take pen in hand and write what comes”… this is what followed ~ I sense messages I receive are not just for myself, but can be for others, please read them with this in mind; in this case I heard deep within this was for the “Bride of Christ” who was preparing herself for her Bridegroom”., perhaps it is simply for the Body of Christ ~ Believers who are born of the resurrected Spirit of Christ. In the reading perhaps you will receive a Knowing it is for your spiritual ears as well:
Have I not said my precious one in My word prophetically, “I will pour out my Spirit on My Handmaidens and Servants in the last days” – truly, my Word has gone forth as truth with My Anointing.
Come! Gather to me, place your ear to My breast – listen to the heartbeat of God. My Heart beats quickly, for time is short – nearer than you think, fulfilling the very designs of God – from WITHIN My heart.
Know that I fulfill My Promises. I will use you greatly in these last days IF you will hearken unto My voice. The voice of The Almighty, for truly I am the ALL mighty and powerful and My power dwells with the earth.
Know you not My Children partake of the very “Essence of Life” when they partake of the “Divine One”? For truly I am Divine. My “Nature” flows in you and through you CONTINUALLY…
YET, My Children grieve Me for their heartbeat beats not with Mine. My very heartbeat they cannot hear for they have not their ear to My breast. Their mouths are to My breast and they know not. They believe they are in My will, yet they take not the time to listen – hearken – unto MY Voice, for it is MY voice you must hear!
Open your hearts that I might “pour” in MY WILL for your lives. Keep your heart ever before Me for truly I have My ear to your breast… for WE ARE ONE and as you listen to My Heartbeat you will know My Will for your lives…
Listen, listen! Come quietly before Me and “know” I am the “true and LIVING God for truly you ‘Live” in Me and I in you…
I take pride in living in my “earthen vessels” – for they were designed by the “Hand of God” – I created them for “My Good Pleasure” and truly they are for a good work!
Work I have designed – work I have proportioned to be done in “each Life”, but I must have YOUR cooperation. Your Willingness to be open to Me – pliable, in “My Hands”, according to “My Will” for your lives.
Open up… Open up unto Me! ME for I am “the Great I Am”, My Spirit dwells Mightily WITHIN you… Know this truth!
Look not to the hindrances that surround you and your families. “Look to Me”, and truly I will “explode” WITHIN you and as I “explode”, you will “see” the “works of God” before your very eyes… Works you’ve never seen before – Know that I have “called” you to a work “such as this” – My call has always been – I call CONTINUALLY… Day and night, that you might answer. Grieve Me Not! Listen to My Heartbeat – “Hear” My Voice in My Heartbeat –
My heart speaks of “My very Life”
My Life Speaks of “My Essence”
My Essence speak of “My Being”
My Being speaks of “My Creation”
And My Creation is good before Me.
SEE the Goodness of the Lord – know that I am God – Pure and Holy and NOTHING can bring Me to shame – know that I have NO FEARS… I am anxious for nothing. Nothing surrounds Me that can encompass Me. Neither poverty, nor sickness nor shame –
There is no shame before God. The shame was destroyed at Calvary through “MY Son” and you are My Son as well as My Daughter – for yes – have I not spoken to you of your Personhood… Each person is an individual before MY eyes – with their own calling – “COMPLETE before Me.” Yes and know that “I” will bring the completion to pass for it is “My Creative Work”, not yours, – not mans, MY creative work!
Fear not! Fear not! For “I” go before you… yes, even though I “seem” to be afar off. Know you not of “My Nearness” – for truly “you” entered into MY Heart – the very “Heart of God” –
YES, truly I am a “living God”… Fear Not My words for I must emphasize “My aliveness” – for yes, there is NO death within Me… My words are alive… “My Creation” is alive, yes “You” are alive In Me…
Know you of My great love? For truly you have opened your heart to Mine – “Our hearts” beat as one. Like the pitter-patter of the “rain coming down” – as Our hearts beat together, WE flow forth over the earth bringing refreshment – soaking, yes even saturating My Creation, to bring forth more life… Life begets Life… Truly “My Life” dwells IN you. You are alive unto your God. FEAR ME NOT!
I will not deceive you – guard yourself from the evil one as I teach you and train you, for truly I use each of My children to the capacity I desire… YET, I require their openness to ME – I have given you the ability to be open to My Spirit but the choice is yours… I force Myself not… My love is too great! Your capacity to love is “far greater” than you can imagine…
Provoke not other to jealously, but ever be meek and lowly “before Me”. Yes, wearing the Cloak of Humility…
Appreciate that which I have given you. “Cherish it”, “guard it” with your very life – for truly IT will cause you to grow in Me…
Speak not words of unthankfulness.
Be not ashamed of your openness to Me – for others have the same choice – I am no respecter of persons, but each must count the cost and be willing to pay the price – “Deny yourself” daily and truly you will grow in me…
Know that I AM your life source! Nothing outside of Me truly matters – as you draw into Me…
I will open My Spirit unto you – to teach you “Mighty things”. Not high and lofty things but meek and lowly truths for YES, I am ever humble, even in My great truths. My truths are simple and they flow freely… for those who stop long enough to see the “River”. It is ever raging before them – yet, they will not stop to listen – nor to look around – BUSY… my people are ever so busy… Yet My truths remain undiscovered… for they sit NOT before Me in emptiness, waiting for Me to fill them – at MY feet…
My feet are at the bottom of the throne.. My feet are truly at the “flood gates” and I wait patiently for My children to “cry out” for “My will” to be done.
My will to be done!
My will, My child, should line up with yours but “Only” as You sit at the “foot of the throne” can I open the “flood Gates” unto you – that you may “enter In” and swim in the “Living waters” – basking – playing ever before ME. For ONLY as your eyes are stayed ON ME can “We” meet eye to eye…
Look into My eyes – truly they are the “Eyes of Eternity”… “My voice” can be heard there too! For you will “see” the “Mind of God”. You must see the Mind of God to KNOW the Mind of God – for can you receive something without first a vision – an idea – yes a “thought from God?” My thoughts are all that really matter – all else ‘is empty” and “void” and brings to NO avail…
Waste Not Your Time! Stay before Me and as you do so, you will bring others with you – for truly they will say: “She is blessed of God…”
Please note: Prophecy does not always come into being immediately and in the image we imagine. It is given in a symbolic spiritual language. When it does come to pass, our spirit will give witness to it’s unfolding, gradual or immediate. “
In our return home there will be thieves and thugs that will strive to divert our sojourn. This can leave us battered and beaten. Unable to move on, and truly in need of healing.
Yet the The Good Samaritan is Faithful and True to come to our aid. Carrying us in His arms, ministering the Oil of His grace, and nourishment to our souls.
All with the encouragement to walk on Home, our Father is anxiously awaiting our return.
This is Love.
Does not come by our works, thoughts or anything from us. Outside of Him we are dead, and the dead can do nothing.
Does not come by our obedience to the law, for this is death to Faith, for it is of the mind.
The human mind is not capable, nor never can be capable of Faith, for the mind is in complete opposition to Faith.
Faith is from outside of us, it is the gift of Life through grace.
It was Faith that raised Lazarus from his sleep. Faith that Abraham left his country and walked into the unknown to seek a city who’s foundation is God.
It was by Faith that Mary conceived, and by Faith that she treasured this in her heart. It was by Faith she knew the one she birthed, would birth her.
It is by Faith we shed the grave clothes of our beliefs, and walk into the obscure, the mystical realm of Spirit, where we find Life.
It is by Faith we move, moving beyond what we know, into a realm of obscurity, and peace, a realm of darkness that breaks into Light.
It is only by His Faith that we can know Atonement.
Only by His Faith that we find this to be true.
“Only goodness and Faithful Love will purse me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
