“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end (to fulfill My promises to you) . . . . Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you . . . . And ye shall seek Me, and ye shall find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all of your heart ! And I will be found of you, saith the LORD, and I will turn away your captivity . . . !” Jeremiah 29:11-14
“For unto this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit . . . and that trembleth at My Word !” Isaiah 66:1-2
“I am instructed to bear a message to those who minister by holding forth the Word of God to others. You must be converted. This is surely what you need. The spiritual anointing of the LORD will never come to self-sufficient men and women. Many who are in God’s service, proclaiming the Truth by pen and voice, are not worked by the Holy Spirit. Self has grown to large proportions. Until the soul is emptied of self and the Holy Spirit takes possession, you will be unready for the coming of Christ. You will certainly be weighed in the golden scales of the heavenly sanctuary and be found wanting.
God’s Promise is to us and to our children (Acts 2:30-39 & Galatians 3:14), and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. We may claim this Promise for ourselves, and receive the Holy Spirit in His fullness. Then shall not we who preach the Word be clothed with the power of God? Shall we not be in truth (verity) His messengers? . . .
Who is willing to take himself in hand? Who is willing to lay his finger upon his cherished idols of sin, and allow Christ to purify the temple by casting out the buyers and sellers? Who is prepared to allow Jesus to enter the soul and cleanse it from everything that tarnishes or corrupts?”
