Enduring in Your Faith Unto God (Audio) David Eells - 4/12/23
The Trial of Perseverance Samuel Fire - 3/16/23 (David’s notes in red)
I had a vision of the peak of a large mountain top. The wind was howling and very intense and it was freezing cold. (The mountain of Babylon that is in the whole earth where the love of many has grown cold and we are tossed about by every wind of change and doctrine in a cold winter of tribulations. Mat. 24:9-13 Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many stumble and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall arise and shall lead many astray. 12 And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold. 13 But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
And Eph. 4:14-15 that we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 15 but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ.)
There was a rope bridge that went from the top of the peak and lead far away into the clouds. (Representing our journey toward the heavenly places in Christ. Christ is the third strand in the ropes that makes up the “rope bridge” that leads to the heavenlies. Ecc. 4:12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.) I couldn’t see where it ended, but it was high in the clouds. The rope was swinging back and forth very fast and it seemed that it would be so very difficult to walk across it. (John 16:33 These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.)
I saw a man that was heavily weighed down with heavy items or burdens, and he was trying to get across the rope bridge while trying very hard not to fall off over the edges. (Isa. 10:24-27 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian, though he smite thee with the rod, and lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. 25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation against thee shall be accomplished, and mine anger shall be directed to his destruction. 26 And Jehovah of hosts will stir up against him a scourge,… 27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall depart from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of fatness.)
The man was at a stand still and was really struggling and he wasn’t sure if he should just turn back or not. (This represents fears, doubts and unbelief that tempt us to go backward, but the Lord will not give us more than we can bear. 1Co. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it.)
I then heard the voice of God say in a loving, encouraging, and fatherly voice, “Take one more step towards Me”. I saw God watching this man the whole time and I felt God was so pleased in this man’s attempt and progress in braving the rope bridge. God was so happy just to see the man taking one more step towards Him. I felt the Father was drawing this man just like you would a child and He had a pleased smile on His face. (Speaking of the prodigal son it says in Luke 15:20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was yet afar off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck and kissed him. And Exo. 34:6 And Jehovah passed by before him [Moses], and proclaimed, Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.)
Stay on the Straight Path Samuel Fire - 3/25/23 (David’s notes in red)
I heard the Lord say, “Stay on course. Any deviation will lead to a completely different destination. Stay true and straight; always making necessary adjustments to stay on the correct path.” (Isa. 30:21 and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it; when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. i.e., this is the path not right and not left.) Then I saw, in a vision, a pilot in the cockpit of a plane. He was plotting the flight and getting ready to fly to a destination very far away. He was checking for any possible errors in the flight path. (Psa. 4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: Commune with your own heart upon your bed and be still.)
Once airborne, he had to ensure that the angle was true and on course. Even the slightest error would eventually take him far away down to the wrong destination. (Psa. 77:1-6 I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me. 2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah 4 Thou holdest mine eyes watching: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5 I have considered the days of old, The years of ancient times. 6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart; And my spirit maketh diligent search.)
I understood that this represents our walk with the Lord. We must check our current life and what we are doing to make sure it is aligned with the truth of His Word and the will of the Father, following Jesus completely. If we did not do this, it would cause us to have the wrong outcome and a most undesirable destination! (Pro. 3:1-8 My son, forget not my law; But let thy heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and years of life, And peace, will they add to thee.
3 Let not kindness and truth forsake thee: Bind them about thy neck; Write them upon the tablet of thy heart: 4 So shalt thou find favor and good understanding In the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart and lean not upon thine own understanding: 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes; Fear Jehovah and depart from evil: 8 It will be health to thy navel, And marrow to thy bones.)
When You Hear His Voice, Harden Not Your Hearts Tiannah Fire - 3/10/23 (David’s notes in red)
(Heb. 3:15 while it is said, To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.)
As I was riding in the car with my husband, my heart was breaking for all the people we were driving past. I could see their bondages and my heart desired so much for them all to be set free in Christ. (Mic. 6:8 He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth Jehovah require of thee, but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with thy God?)
I then heard the Lord say, “I want to heal and set the captives free more than you do”. (Isa. 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me; because Jehovah hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
2 to proclaim the year of Jehovah's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that he may be glorified.)
I then felt strongly to start writing down what the Lord was trying to say, but then I thought that maybe I wasn’t really hearing from God, so I ignored the feeling. But the urge got stronger and I felt that I am unworthy to hear from God; that I don’t deserve to hear from Him and I am nothing. I battle these thoughts and feelings all the time and have unknowingly rebelled against when God wanted me to do something because I had doubt that it was from God, so I didn’t obey the Holy Spirit or share it. (Isa. 59:21 And as for me, this is my covenant with them, saith Jehovah: my Spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seeds seed, saith Jehovah, from henceforth and for ever.)
I felt the Lord’s presence get stronger and I then knew it was Him undeniably. I started to tear up while having to let go of doubt, unbelief, rejection, and fear of rejection.(Jude 1:20-22 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And on some have mercy, who are in doubt.)
It hurt because it is something so familiar to me and something I have had my whole life. Even though I have had deliverance in some areas, there are still other areas that I don’t even realize are doubt and unbelief. (Isa. 42:3 A bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.)
So, I pulled up the “Notes app” on my phone and the Lord began speaking. (Psa. 81:10 …Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.)
He said, “Doubt and unbelief are your biggest hindrances”. (I felt God is waiting on us to get in complete alignment with Him by Faith through His Grace and to let go of all doubt and unbelief.) (Jas. 1:6-8 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord; 8 a double minded man, unstable in all his ways. But we must also remember it says in Eph. 2:8 for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. 6 not of works, that no man should glory.)
I then heard, “I want to heal and set the captives free more than you do. I gave you that desire. You call yourself an unworthy vessel, but unworthy vessels are who I want. Just like your brethren in times past who all had faults; in the world’s eyes they were also unworthy. But to Me you and all of those that Christ lives in are vessels more worthy than anything you know in the physical. (1Co. 1:26-31 For behold your calling, brethren, that not many wise after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 (Numeric) but God chose the foolish
things of the world, that he might put to shame them that are wise; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong; 28 and the base things of the world, and the things that are despised, did God choose, yea and the things that are not, that he might bring to nought the those that are: 29 that no flesh should glory before God. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who was made unto us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: 31 that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.)
I want to set free and heal all those around you that you see in pain and suffering. I want to reveal Myself to them and show them My Grace, My Glory, and My Power. But just like those that were witnesses of Jesus’ miracles in His day, there will be those that see and still don’t believe. (They are not elect of God which are the “called out ones” and they will not be given the grace to have the gift of faith to believe. Rev. 21:8 But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.)
I want to manifest through you more than YOU want Me too. I want to heal more than YOU do. I want revival more than YOU all. I want You to be My Bride more than YOU want to be Mine. This is not just for you but for all My Bride and My elect. (Joe. 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit.)
You need to let go of all doubt and unbelief. It is hindering you and your brethren from Me maturing and living through you. You need to stop and examine every thought and feeling and discern if it is faith or not. (Psa. 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts; 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.) Doubt and unbelief are the enemies’ biggest weapons, and it is so familiar to you because it has been there your whole life and your ancestors lives through all generations. Adam and Eve doubted me. Doubt and unbelief are the root of all sins, and it hinders everyone and everything. (When we obey 2 Co. 3:18 to see Jesus in the mirror, we must change our opinion of ourselves by faith.)
My Son has conquered these, and you need to let go of it, and I will grow in you. I want to grow in you and manifest quickly; time is so short, and these are the last days. The wickedness will keep growing, but My light will grow even greater, and I want unworthy vessels (in the world’s eyes) to flow through more powerfully.
I have so many things planed, and much I want to do even now, and in the days to come, but My vessels need to let go of all doubt; the doubt of worthiness for Me to manifest through you and speak to you, doubt of My voice and doubt of My love for you, doubt of My willingness and desire to be in you 100-fold. You ask me for so many things, but you have doubt that I will answer and doubt that it is My will. I desire to answer all you ask for. I gave you those desires, but your doubt and unbelief hinder me from answering. LET GO OF ALL DOUBT. The doubt and unbelief keeps you from Me. [because of rebellion.]. All the evil and the suffering, is My eternal Mercy and Grace, and it is for your good. There is so much you can’t know or understand while you are here, but that’s why you need to trust Me and not doubt Me. The enemy knows that all things are according to your faith. What you believe you will receive, not just for you, but for all my elect. The devil knows My Word and My nature more than you do. He was so close to me, but I had to let him go
Let go of all doubt and unbelief and help each other, uplift each other in each one’s weaknesses. You are one. BUILD ONE ANOTHER’S FAITH. Don’t tear it down. BE IN UNITY, and not divided. My bride is one, now, and for eternity. I have chosen you all for Me, I have brought you out and I will take everything unholy out of you and you will be whole. You already are [by faith] and it is going to manifest.
Let go of all doubt. I love you and the world has corrupted what you think love is and how love is to be, but I Am greater than your greatest imagination. I created everything. Let go of everything you know that isn’t “the Sum of My Word.” I am yours and you are Mine and I will carry you and manifest through you the rest of the way and into eternity. [In my view] eternity is already now.”
The Righteous Shall Not be Put to Shame
Debbie Fenske - 4/7/23 (David’s notes in red)
(Debbie spoke this Word from the Lord at our Friday evening meeting.)
“Why is there shame? For I see shame. I see each and every heart. I see where some of you are weak in walking in My Son’s accomplished work for you at the cross. Have not your sins been cast into the depths of the sea? Are not your sins removed from you as far as the east is from the west? And when you confess your sins to Me, and repent, do I not forgive them? My dear children, I forgive them.
Therefore, break forth into praise unto Me for that I have made you Mine. And I see you as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am still making and shaping you into my likeness. Do not look at your old self. That old self that you so often look at was on the cross. Look at the cross and see yourself there with me. Cast off the shame! For it died there. I know what you know. For I have revealed much to you. I know what you have received. And you know what you have received.
So do not fall backward. Press onward into the higher realm of faith that I am taking you into. I see you. And what I Am seeing is my My perfected ones. I smile upon you, My perfected ones. Keep pressing in. Keep your eyes looking right on as you keep pressing on. Yes, keep pressing in and on to that high calling that I have called you too. Let go and live in total faith in me. Have faith in Me, the faith that comes only from Me. Have faith in the authority that I have given you over all the power of the evil one, your enemy.
Yes, my children. Now you know where that shame is coming from. Rise up! Take up your Sword, knowing who you are in Me, and cast down the lies of the devil. See that he has already been overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the very word of your testimony. [Because you did not love your life unto death.] So be bold and be strong as you press on to your high calling in Christ Jesus.
Now, I say to you: Repent. You must repent of looking at your old self, old sins, and shame. Tear down those idols! My children, what more must I say? I see you as complete and new. And you must see Me in you. There is your help, faith, confidence, strength, and endurance. Yea, your very full salvation. There is nothing else for you now, but the life of Jesus in you.
Take heed to these words I am speaking to you, My beloved ones, so that you will not be led astray by the errors of your own thinking, [reasoning] and the errors of others, and your own ways. Continue in My Word and My ways. There is your victory. Remember, I Am not against you. I Am for you.! For you are Mine! See My arms always stretched out to you? Come unto Me and be saved! Remind, help, and encourage one another with these words.”
Fiercely Faithful Julie Daughter of the King - April 1, 2023
Message received March 29, 2023:
“My child, encourage My people with My words:
I see your journey from a perspective that you are not able to completely understand now. But, very, very soon you will understand the suffering in this life. I have given you parts of the bigger picture, a glimpse into the reason and meaning behind why there must be suffering while you are here. But, as My Spirit comes to pour out in full measure, your spiritual eyes will see clearly, and you will rejoice in that you suffered well. For those who have suffered much, I am here. I have always been here. I have not only walked beside you through this life, but I go before you. I am your Rear Guard. I hedge you in on all sides, but most importantly, I am within.
There is a price to pay, yes, for following Me and for walking in obedience. Suffering in this life may not seem to bring a desirable outcome from your perspective, but it is the heart in the suffering that I see. I see all of you who are My hidden but fierce warriors. You who are no one to the world. You who suffer alone and without physical comfort from another. You who suffer long, hard, and much. Let Me assure you My beautiful ones. I see every tear. I hear every thought. I hold you and I comfort you from within. It is I who gives you the inner strength to go one more minute, one more hour, one more day, not giving in to despair, doubt or fear, but rather praising Me all the more that you are chosen.
I was with you from your beginning, as I chose you for this reason, because I saw you would suffer well. I saw your fierce faithfulness and your stedfast endurance, your quiet obedience in the suffering, and I said yes, you are My beloved. You will glorify Me much in your suffering and the reward will far outweigh the cost for the short time that you are here.
You trust Me for the outcome, and you believe that I will heal you at the appointed time. Even without the full understanding, you accept what I allow for you, and you don't complain or become bitter. Your testimony will be so powerful for others, and I will manifest Myself to them through you.
I am coming for you sooner than you think..
Continue to seek Me in every moment, pray and talk to Me without ceasing. I love you My beloved ones. I love you,”
2 Corinthians 5:7 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
Psalm 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
Philemon 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Psalm 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Isaiah 62:1-7 For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. 2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. 3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. 5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, soshall thy God rejoice over thee. 6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, 7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
My husband said, “With every tear we shed and through our sufferings, Father is always with us. He collects our tears in His bottle, and He knows how hard it can be to overcome this world and the infirmity of the flesh. But the just will walk by faith. Through faith, we believe; through faith, we persevere; and, through faith we mature, as we trust Him even in the hardest of circumstances, for He cares for us and loves us beyond measure. We are His, and He refines us in the fires of affliction to bring forth a vessel ready for the next stage of the journey in Him. We are almost there! Let us lay down all that we have gone through on Our Father's altar and ask Him to use our sufferings for His purposes and for His glory!”
The following is an abridged version of the understanding Father gave my husband and I about how He weaves our experiences and sufferings into a glorious tapestry of the children of The Great I AM.
“My love is eternal, and as an expression of My love manifested in and through My children, I have created an interwoven tapestry of My children's journeys, as they go through this life and the fires of affliction that I allow to greater intimacy in Me. It is made up of all of your struggles, sufferings, and triumphs, and it highlights the heart motive of each life decision you have made in the depth of color and brilliance displayed. Each decision a person makes to walk in greater faith and obedience and what I have called them to do produces an outcome in the Spirit. This in turn affects how each thread is added and how all are connected to display the beauty and brilliance of My design. It is a wonder to behold!
My beloved ones, you are precious in My sight, and this life is filled with so much that you don't fully understand. But the time is coming when you will, and great will be your reward in heaven! Hold on to My truths and My promises and rejoice! I am always with you in your sufferings, and I sit with you in the ashes. Will you praise Me and continue to walk in greater faith, even in affliction? Let not bitterness take root, but give me your sufferings, as you have given Me your hearts and your lives. I am always with you. You are loved beyond measure My precious ones. Hold fast 'til I come.”
Do All Things Out of My Love Samuel Fire - March 2023 (David’s notes in red)
I was in prayer and heard the Lord say, “Question yourself. Is what you are doing out of love, and not for how they can love you in return, or the benefits you would receive? Is your love [presented in a way they can receive it] from their point of view? Would I approve of what you are doing to them?
Why do you want to do it? (What are the motivations?) For self or because of fear [or insecurity]? Or is it because I Am and My love [through you] conquers all?
Many have come before Me and failed. (I felt there have been many who said they were righteous and deserved to be accepted into heaven but were denied for self-works [selfish love] and did not love for his Glory.)
Rest in My promises and in knowing that I need you. (He paid the ultimate price for us and has heavily invested into us with need for those whom He has chosen)
Even a tiny light can overcome, overwhelm, and destroy the pitch-black darkness! (I was reminded of a watch I wore when I was a child that I pressed a button, and it was bright enough to see in the dark at night.)
Speak and be the image of My light and My Word as My Son has given the example. Be strong to never let anything change the Christ in you. (We are conquerors by faith!)
You have two ears. (We must be quick to hear and slow to speak.) You can't shut your ears, but you can shut your mouth! (I felt very convicted about what I speak and to let my words be few.)
Be strong. Nothing can separate you from Me! Do not let the darkness overtake the light! You are dear and near to Me than even the breath you breathe. Reach up! Grab ahold! Do you not see I await you for an infinite eternal love relationship forever? Come, let us sup together!”
