THE POINT OF THE SPEAR


I would pose this question to those who say they walk in My footsteps. When faced with trials and tribulations, when seemingly overwhelming situations come your way, when those you love offend, betray, insult, and condemn, when the point of the spear penetrates your heart, of what do you bleed? Do you respond with bitterness for bitterness? Anger and envy in retaliation? Insults for each injury incurred? Biting remarks for hurtful unsolicited opinions? Do you bleed poisonous responses and remarks as it has been done to you? Or do you exhibit grace, mercy, kindness, compassion, and unconditional love? I realize what I have asked of you in not easy or natural in your physical realm. You must remember however that I am the perfect example in that I have showed you these things, these acts of kindness and mercy that can and must be shown. I came to show you that there is a way. It is My Way. And yes, it is not how you on your own accord would respond. I have called you to be My heirs, My brothers and sisters. I require a life set apart from the world. I have told you time and time again, this world is not your home. In this, I wish that you would find comfort. When you choose to retaliate evil for evil, you only assist in perpetuating the darkness that is encompassing the world. I have called you to be My lights. I have called you to be something different. I have called you to bring about My Kingdom on this earth. Show these lost ones that there is hope, that all is not lost. You, many times, are the only lights they will ever see. Yes, I have allowed their hearts to become hardened, but no one is beyond My mercy and My salvation unless they have pledged allegiance to the dark one. If you truly wish to walk with Me and have prayed to be My disciples, then do not pray selfish prayers. Pray the will of the Father. Pray that I would send tests for you to strengthen and increase your faith. Pray that you would be made strong in Me through these tribulations, do not pray to be removed from them, for it is in these tests that you will grow and mature in your relationship with Me. I speak in My Word of My Way as the narrow way. Following Me will never be easy. Just as I did, you will always have adversity. You must expect this, and prepare your hearts each day in your time alone with Me for these such situations. I will arm you, and equip you. Trust Me in this. And know that when they persecute you, they first persecuted Me. Turning the other cheek is contrary to what the physical mans' response would be. But I am calling you to operate from the spirit, not the flesh. This is so very important. You have also been told in My Word that I came to create division, and it will start in your families. Choosing Me and Me alone will often result in separation from your loved ones. My will is that you would master these principles for the coming ensuing darkness, the darkness that is already upon you. My Way, My Spirit, My Blood, My Sacrifice. It has been accomplished for all time. Realize this, and realize how much My heart has bled unconditional love for each one of you. At the point of the spear, bleed love. 

The Lamb that was slain

John 13:34-35

King James Version (KJV)
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another


Matthew 7:13-14

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Isaiah 41:10

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 43:2

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.


John 16:33

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


John 15:18-19

18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you

Luke 6:29

29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.


Luke 12:51-53

51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.


Proverbs 18:21

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.


James 3

My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
