The LORD says, “Beloved. The anointing upon you is not cheap. It came upon you and in you at a great cost, Dear One.”

Source: The Anointing Upon You is Not Cheap ~ by Deborah Waldron Fry

The LORD says, “Just as I have called David as a young shepherd boy to be a King, I have called you to be used in an extraordinary way.”

There is a story in the book of 1 Samuel chapter 16 about the calling of King David.

The LORD told the Prophet Samuel to fill his horn with oil and go to anoint one of Jesse’s sons to be the next King. Each one of Jesse’s sons passed before Samuel.

The first one named Eliab passed before him. Samuel thought that surely he was the one to anoint because he considered his outward appearance.

But The LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For The LORD does not see as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but The LORD looks at the heart.”

Abinadab then passed before him. Abinadab had a son named Eleazar who was consecrated to guard the ark of the covenant in Abinadabs house after it was returned from Palistine captivity, (1 Samuel 7:1).

It remained in his house for twenty years. He then had Shammah pass before him. Shammah was the warrior who is credited with having single-highhandedly defeated the Philistine soldiers at a lentil patch. He may also be the man who defeated 600 men of the Philistines with an ox goad.

After each one of Jesse’s seven sons passed before Samuel, he told Jesse that The LORD has not chosen any of them.

Samuel then asked if he had any other sons, Jesse said yes the youngest son who is tending the sheep. Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”

So he sent for David and brought in. David was ruddy with bright eyes and handsome features. When Samuel had seen David, The LORD said to him, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”

Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of The LORD came upon David from that day forward.

In the same way, Jesus is anointing the next generation.  Just as He passed Davids brothers up, He is also passing many others up to find the one who has a heart after Him.

He is not looking for someone who is brilliant or renowned, but He is searching for the one who spends time with Him in the secret place.

There are some who have been abused, used and rejected from their youth.  To the world they are known as “Generation X” or “the Millennial’s”.

They are tenacious in faith, radical for Jesus and are ready to transform the world with the glory of God.  He has a master plan for their lives and they are going to defeat their enemy with the same weapon that he used against them.

The LORD says, “Just as I have called David as a young shepherd boy to be a King, I have called you to be used in an extraordinary way.

Just as I anointed him and raised him up to be a mighty warrior, I also anoint you to be strong and very courageous.

There is no need to be fearful or fainthearted because you will minister in My Strength and Anointing.  You will know the authority that I have placed on your life as I raise you up for the end times.

As the world looks at you and see’s your faults and failures, I see you as the mighty warrior that I have created you to be.

Don’t see yourself in defeat, neither see yourself as the person who you once were because I have created you to be a giant slayer.

You will arise and defeat the powers of the enemy because you have been called to greatness.  You have been created for My end time plan.

Just as David confronted and killed Goliath, so shall you stand against the giants and conquer them.  Just as David killed the lion and the bear, you are well able to overcome every obstacle and adversity that comes against you.

I will train your hands for war and your fingers for battle, an have gifted you and called you to do great exploits.  I have created each one of you for a unique purpose and placed My anointing upon your lives.

I strategically designed each one of you to be different from the others.  Don’t try to emulate the calling of someone else, but imitate their life by following their blameless lifestyle and holy way of living as you clothe yourselves in robes of righteousness.

I have given you the personality and the temperament to be just as you are and to do all that you were called to do.

You are unique because you are not of this world but you have been set apart for such a time as this.  You have been chosen for a particular assignment.

As you stay steadfast in your convictions and uncompromising in your walk with Me, I will visit you and speak to you.

As I anointed David, I now anoint you, saying ‘Arise, anoint him, for this Is the one,’” says The LORD.

“But The LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him.  For The LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but The LORD looks at the heart,”    1 Samuel 16:7.

“And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him.  For we will not [e]sit down till he comes here.”  So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking.  And The LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”  Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of The LORD came upon David from that day forward.  So Samuel arose and went to Ramah,”   1 Samuel 16:11-13.

Jeremiah 31: 6For there shall be a day when watchmen will cry in the hill country of Ephraim: ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.’”
Father in Heaven – As Isaiah heard Your calling “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” my response is the same as Isaiah’s “Here am I. Send me!” [Insert Petitioner’s Name Here]

As for the little boy, Samuel, You came and stood by him, calling, “Samuel! Samuel!”
Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” – So it is with us LORD – your chosen vessels, we cry out to go and speak for you LORD – we desire to go and be the face of Jesus to those people who do not know Him or You – Father.
As You spoke to Moses on the mountain top, You instructed him and the Israelites to leave this place and go to the Land of Promise – You said that “Your presence will go with them, and You will give them peace.” In the same way, we as your chosen vessels, pray that you would send us out into the harvest of the many and that Your presence will go with us and you will give us peace.
And with this assignment of leaving our worldly careers behind us and moving on with our Godly careers in your Kingdom – we call for the promises You made in Your Word for the super-natural giftings, blessings, and abilities – through the Power of Holy Spirit that resides in us.

Father – we come and petition to be sent out in the same way the Jesus sent out His twelve disciples where He instructed them to proclaim “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” And to “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons.”

Father – we pray these words of Jesus apply to our mission where Jesus says in John 14:12-14 — 12 “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
We pray to “Let our light so shine before others, that they may see our good works which will glorify You, our Father, in heaven.”
We continue to supplicate many more requests in the name of Jesus where He said in Matthew 7: 7-8 — 7“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
And with this, we humbly ask for the following:
• For unbelief to melt away in all of our interactions with others on the mission
• To have the courage that young David had when he faced Goliath – that nothing would ever inhibit or cause us to depart in fear – that NOTHING would stop us in delivering the message of the Mercy, Love and Forgiveness – the true message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
• To never let our fleshy pride get in our way so that we constantly put forth a “Christ – like” attitude of humility and selfless love in all that we do
• To NOT back down from any advisory in or out of the faith – to stand upon the true Word of God and not falter in any way by misrepresenting the Truth found in the God’s Word
• To speak for the LORD – never from our fleshy selves – that in every situation, the words that come from our mouths would be identical to what our Lord – Jesus would say.
With all these things, we ask by the Power of Holy Spirit and in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Christ, our LORD and SAVIOR – AMEN.

The Master's Voice

And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee, for I am with thee,” saith the LORD, “to deliver thee.” – (Jeremiah 1:19)

Comfort my people, says the Lord.

Comfort them.

Speak to my people with kind words, and succour them (comfort, assist and give them help in a time of great trial and distress), that they may know I am their weapon in these times.

I am their protection, I am their comfort. I AM the keeper of the weak and helpless. The nursing lamb and suckling will be protected by Me even as the disobedient and their lambs are destroyed. The evil ones and their issue (offspring) shall be denied and cut off, but my people shall have a bulwark and a safety in Me. I am the Lord. I am the Christ. I AM THE RESURRECTED GOD WHO HUNG ON THE…

Hello everyone! This morning, January 11, 2020, I received the following word and vision. Please take this word and vision to the Lord for confirmation.
Shalom.
Margaret Blake

THE VISION

I saw a horse; mighty white and muscular; fierce and majestic. It pawed the earth in battle readiness and upon its back sat JESUS, the ONE who is our LORD and our KING. He sat as one in the fullness of authority. In His right hand was a drawn sword. He turned and looked at the vast army of riders assembled behind Him; and I felt in my spirit the communication of His strength and power to those who rode with Him. The atmosphere was charged with anticipation of the forthcoming battle as His strength and power rippled through the horses like an enduring wave, while the faithful who sat upon these steeds of might, fixed their eyes upon their KING and set their faces like flint.

THE WORD

The gauntlet of The Lord has been thrown down! The sickle has been put to the harvest. The Lord is mounted and His riders with Him. The horses carry
the majesty of their KING and LORD in their stride. With great strength the Army of Heaven assembles. The dawning of the Day of the Lord has arrived!

The Lord turns and looks about Him with the greatness of the Son of the Most High GOD. His eyes flash the power of His intent and lays hold of the gaze of all who ride with Him. He is their Commander-in-Chief; the Son of GOD; The Lion of Judah! Those with Him, wearing white robes, sit also upon white horses; their numbers beyond the count of man. As one they ride with their KING, who wears draped upon His shoulders, a robe, dipped in blood,
red as crimson which flows out around Him. Upon His thigh is written KING of Kings and LORD of Lords. There is none like Him. The majesty of His
presence catches their breath as they fix their eyes upon Him!

Our LORD comes! Our KING comes riding the strength of His victory! His unsheathed sword flashes the power of Heaven, charging the atmosphere both in Heaven and on earth with battle worship and victory cries. Who is like unto our GOD! Who can stand against Him!

Love flows out of His great heart toward His people on earth, signalling to many Heaven’s approach. The alarms are given; the warnings are released as His love fills His people on earth with His presence, and the power of His might strengthens our battle stance.

All is set. All is ready. The Heavens are rending! Our KING approaches! He comes! He comes! And the strength of Heaven comes with Him!

Though many are called, few are chosen; for the chosen are those who have answered His call. Are you one of them?
