SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
This is the beginning of a season of renewal. Take this time to renew your love for Me and your belief in Me. So many of My people have slipped away from their First Love by getting entangled in worldly things. Do not be one of them. Come into the sweetness of My presence and be refreshed and strengthened.
Jeremiah 24:7 Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.
THE TRUTH IN HIS WORD
November 20, 2021
Good morning my Beloved Brethren in Christ Jesus.
It was about 08:30am this morning, Nov 20 2021, I was directed by the Ruach Ha Kodesh to the word He gave me yesterday (Hosea 13, read with Good News and Contemporary English Version Bibles) and another today, Amos 3 & 4; I read it with the Holman Christian Standard Bible.
Inasmuch as I believe this speaks to modern day Babylon, this message is to us all. I read Amos chapters 3 and 4 this morning with new eyes (insight), the words made my heart bleed. I am only going to post the verses God highlighted and beg you to read all 3 chapters given prayerfully.
Carefully read (with the knowledge of what is going on our world right now) the words of Amos 3:1-8, I pray the LORD shows the faithful and obedient ones, the Truth seekers (like He calls them) the Truth in His Word. His Words are complete Truth. The eyes that will see it will see, the ears that will hear will hear. God bless and keep us all hidden in Him. Amen.
HOSEA 13:12-16 (GNT or CEV)
[PLEASE READ FROM VERSE ONE(1)]
12 “Israel’s sin and guilt are on record and the records are safely stored away. 13 Israel has a chance to live, but is too foolish to take it—like a child about to be born, who refuses to come out of the womb. 14 I will not save this people from the world of the dead or rescue them from the power of death. Bring on your plagues, death! Bring on your destruction, world of the dead! I will no longer have pity for this people. 15 Even though Israel flourishes like weeds, I will send a hot east wind from the desert and it will dry up their springs and wells. It will take away everything of value. 16 Samaria must be punished for rebelling against Me. Her people will die in war; babies will be dashed to the ground and pregnant women will be ripped open.”
AMOS 3:1-8 (HCBS). Words italicized and in parentheses are mine based on the impressions I got as I read the Word.
1 Listen to this message that the LORD has spoken against you, Israelites, against the entire clan that I brought from the land of Egypt: 2 I have known only you out of all the clans of the earth; therefore, I will punish you for all your iniquities. 3 Can two walk together without agreeing to meet? (Who are you walking with these days?)* 4 Does a lion roar in the forest when it has no prey? Does a young lion growl from its lair unless it has captured something? (Are you the prey or the captured something?)* 5 Does a bird land in a trap on the ground if there is no bait for it? Does a trap spring from the ground when it has caught nothing? (Think about these illustrations)* 6 If a ram’s horn is blown in a city, aren’t people afraid? If a disaster occurs in a city, hasn’t the LORD done it? 7 Indeed, the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing His counsel to His servants the prophets. 8 A lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken; who will not prophesy?
(PLEASE READ THE REST OF CHAPTER 3 AND BEGINNING OF CHAPTER 4)
AMOS 4: 12-13 (HCBS)
12 Therefore, Israel, that is what I will do to you and since I will do that to you, Israel, prepare to meet your God! 13 He is here: the One who forms the mountains, creates the wind and reveals His thoughts to man, the One who makes the dawn out of darkness and strides on the heights of the earth. Yahweh, the God of Hosts, is His name.
This is the LORD’S declaration. (Amos 3:15)
November 20, 2021. Should you come on being easy or come as a heavy in the situation you are facing? Protocol has indeed been broken. Think about how you want to be treated and go at this with that in mind. Sometimes a person needs to face the facts and change their way of operation. This is one of those times. Change to get in line with what others are doing. They had to get in line. This one needs that also.
James 4:17 (AMP) “So any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin.” Bev Robinson
November 20, 2021. Be angry and sin not. This sounds like a contradiction but it is not. When anger is left alone, it will seep into every area of your life. I say today, let that anger come up and out of you before it takes root. Bitterness will be the result and bitterness will be harmful to you and those around you. Let anger happen and then deal with it and release it. Do not hold on to it.
Hebrews 12:15 (TLB) “Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you, for as it springs up it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
