We all know what it feels like to send an important text message to somebody and have it not go through.
And the notorious reply that bounces back at us is, “message send failure.”
Immediately through our minds pop a hundred and one reasons as to why our message failed to send.
“Is their phone turned off?”
“Are they okay?”
“Is their iMessage on?”
“Is Rogers acting up again?”
“Do they have poor service right now?”
It’s agitating to know that after option one didn’t work—calling them—option 2 is doing no better.
When you have a message to give, especially one that’s extremely important and time sensitive, you want nothing more than for your message to read, “DELIVERED.”
I’ll let you in on a little something..
God wants nothing more than for His message to get across to you and read DELIVERED.
For many of us..
God has tried calling us, but we’ve yet to pick up.
We’re missing out on what He has to say.
But, today God is choosing route #2.
As you read these “messages,” it is my prayer that you position yourself to RECIEVE them. God has laid a few key things on my heart to say to you. It’s not me talking, but God’s talking. Fill in your name wherever you see a blank as you let His words minister to you.
A MESSAGE FROM GOD
GOD: _______, my child. I’ve been trying to reach you, but you’ve been busy and distracted. I want to revive you and I want you to restore you. I’ve tried sending you a few messages earlier, but they have all read, “message send failure.” I’m re-sending you my messages. This time, I hope it delivers.
THE FIRST MESSAGE: YOU’RE DEAD.
“_______, my child, you’re sleeping! Wake up! You’re dead. I need to revive you. Then, I need to use you. I need you to be a voice for my people, but you have been lying down without a care. You’re not conscious of my presence anymore. You’re not aware of my voice. I’ve, called and called, and called but there has been no response on your end. Can you get a signal now? Please, ______ wake up! Because it is while you sleep that your enemy comes to sow tares, in your life! (Matt 13:25) You’re wondering where the joy went? Where the glory went? Where your finances went? Where true life went? It left while you slept! The greatest enemy to your revived and restored nature in me has succeeded in putting you to sleep in the spirit. Please, get the message! You can no longer be a DEAD MAN WALKING. You can no longer continue living in your sin, For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:23)“
THE SECOND MESSAGE: I LOVE YOU…PLEASE, HEAL.
“Listen to me carefully ______, what I need you to understand that your revival is essential. Do you understand how much I want for you to come back to life? How much I desire to make you a poster board for my own glory? My child….I love you immeasurably. You may be dead and you may be sleeping, but even that has not changed the status of my love for you. In fact, nothing, can ever separate you from my love (Romans 8:38). Did you know that? My child, I have great, great, plans for you. Plans to give you a hope and future (Jeremiah 29:11). Plans to make you great and revivalist amongst your generation. But…you don’t believe me so much anymore, do you? The pain from the tares the enemy has sowed into your life has caused you to think that I am against you. But, I’m completely for you. I love you so much that I have sent forth my word, to heal all your diseases. (Psalm 107:20) This includes: heartbreak, sickness, poverty, failure, grief, confusion, anger, malice, jealousy, bitterness, you name it. I have the power in My Word to heal it all. Do you want to be healed? I will restore you to health and heal you of all your wounds (Jeremiah 30:17). I will revive you. Do you want to be healed? Please, answer me.”
THE THIRD MESSAGE: LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD
“I want you to be revived _____. I also want you to heal. But, you must know ______, that it will come with a price. There is a price tag for your personal revival. And that price tag is, surrender. If I revive you, restore you, heal you…you must understand that you cannot go back to the things that killed you. Leave the dead things with the dead things. Let the dead bury the dead. (Luke 9:59-60) What do I mean, my child? Following Me, means committing to Me. It means dying to your former pleasures, wants, needs and desires that left you DEAD.
I tell you that so long as you continue to associate with the dead, destructive and lifeless things of this world you will bare no fruit. Yeah…there will really be nothing to you. But if you remain in me, you will bare much fruit and you bear a whole lotta of fruit that’s when I see you as true disciple of Mine (John 15:7-8). So, please ______, connect to me. I have given you the grace to pay the price. Let the works and dead things of the flesh go! Things like: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and just things like these (Galatians 5:19-21). I’m telling you… if you don’t disassociate with these things, you will never be able to have true life in Me.”
THE FOURTH MESSAGE: DRAW YOUR SWORD & FIGHT
“And please know ______, I never said that disassociating yourself from the pleasures of your flesh would be easy. But, I have given you one of the greatest weapons to fight the instigator of your flesh and the enemy to your revival—My Word. Often times, my child, getting my people to wake up to revival is not the issue but getting them to stay revived is. You cannot fight the enemy of your revival alone.
You will need to sustain the life I have given to you with my Word. My Word is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) My Word is your greatest weapon. It’s powerful, so much so that I hold My Word above my name (Phil 2:9). You will need to fight off the enemy’s schemes and tactics to destroy you with my written Word. All you need is in there.
THE FITH MESSAGE: YOU’RE ALIVE…NOW REVIVE
So, you see ________, I want to make you fully alive in Me. My child, I have paid for life for you already! You were made to be alive in Christ! (Ephesians 2:4-6) When your alive, revived, refreshed, restored, and renewed is when others can also be. There’s a heavy mandate on your life and that is you are to go into all the world making more true disciples of Me, baptizing them in my name (Matt 28:19-20). But will you get the message? Will you see that I have place for you to go? And people for you to impact? How long should I wait before you respond? I want to use you. I want to pour out my Spirit upon you. I want you to be the point of contact through which others are drawn to Me. I want you to touch the nations. But are you getting my messages? Are you still sleeping? Will you wake up? Will you respond? Today? I’m waiting…
Until next time friends,
