|If you want to be raptured, you must refrain from these deadly Things|
December 10, 2018 – Words from Jesus to Sister Clare
Clare began… Precious Holy Spirit, please come and possess us. Let Your Holy thoughts and temperament and all Your ways change what is left of the flesh in us… Amen.
My dear ones, some of you have expressed a bit of anxiety over whether or not you will be Raptured with your loved ones. I want to address those of you, especially, who have been fighting the good fight — especially against judgment and a bad temper.
Beneath this temper are seeds of bitterness, with layers and layers of disappointment for that seed to grow into a huge, strangling vine. Some of you, dear ones, have allowed yourselves to have a seething temper and a raging attitude against others. I am telling you that unless you conquer that, you will be left behind.
When you hold the sins of others against them, you build up anger and rancor. You are nourishing Satan’s seed in the garden of your heart. You are feeding a monster that will choke out all that was good in you and leave you for a bitter, shriveled mess.
You will not stand before God, because you are clinging to the wrongs, or what you feel are the wrongs, of others. It is this way. One who holds unforgiveness in their hearts is offering a chalice of poison to the person who hurt you. But they don’t drink — you do. They go on their way with their lives, perhaps not even knowing how you feel about them. In the meantime, that bitterness turns to poison and feeds a thriving root of bitterness that chokes out everything that is good.
Have you ever met someone who is always on the edge of anger? Always finding fault with others? Always over reacting to situations and ranting? That person has a huge root of bitterness in their hearts that is now bearing very bad fruit. Were you abused in your childhood? Are you persecuted by those you hoped would love you? These are the weapons Satan uses to put you in bondage, and ruin what could have been good in your life.
Jesus demonstrated to us how to handle the Romans who were extremely cruel to Him. He said… ‘Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.’ This is the posture we must have when dealing with wounds in our lives. We can not afford to let them fester and breed with all kinds of bacteria, making our hearts a sewer of indignation and self-righteousness.
Dear ones. Judgment, criticism, hatred – all of these things are like a stinky diaper. The Lord wants us to know we are dealing with people who have been broken, wounded, and never forgave their parents, their boss, etc. They carry around their hatred for everyone and open their mouths to give self-righteous judgements about others—not understanding that they themselves are turning into the same kind of person.
We have an expression around here, when something sounds like gossip. Ezekiel and I will pipe up and say, “Dirty diaper! Uh, uh…leave it alone!” And it works… But that’s how the Saints perceive it. It makes a terrible stench for the Cloud of Witnesses standing around. It’s a horrible odor.
Rather, the Lord wants us to bind the broken-hearted, to pray for those who persecute us, and refrain from judging. Sure, the abuse is wrong! But don’t assign motives to the other person as to why they are reacting that way. Understand that underneath is bitterness and disappointment they let grow to a huge root of bitterness, never forgiving those who hurt them. And what these people need is to know how much they are loved by the Lord. And need kindness, gentleness, understanding, and compassion.
If you react to them THIS way, you are side-stepping Satan’s deadly Bitter trap, and you are becoming more compassionate and kind. Loving as Jesus loved — even the Romans. Our little friend, Rainbow, has Jesus’ heart living inside of her. She was abused but tried with all her strength to forgive and pray for them. On the other hand, she is quite human and had her own outbursts of frustration and even vengeance. But because she listened to the Lord, she knew it was wrong, and she repented.
When you say something derogatory to another, you are sinning. When you call names and accuse, you are sinning. When you look down on your sister or brother, you are sinning seriously. When you judge and accuse, you are sinning. God will not take those of you with these faults in the Rapture. You must first overcome your bitterness and inner hatred for others.
The long and short of it, is that if you want to go in the Rapture. If you want to make it to Heaven — you must lay down all your grudges, disappointments, anger, rage, rancor, retaliation, and vengeance. Lay them all down at the foot of the Cross and tell Jesus… ‘Lord, I may not feel like forgiving. But I make an act of the will to forgive them. Lord, please help me.’
Mind you, the enemy will return with an invitation to hate. But you must conquer that with the Love of Christ living in you. How does the love of Christ come to live in you? By repenting of your sins, asking Him to come into your heart and change you. By confessing that Jesus Christ is your Lord and your life belongs to Him. Soon enough, He will help you forgive.
How does this closeness happen with Jesus? Well, there are many ways. One is meditating on Scripture. Reading Scripture and finding something that really touches your heart. Stopping there and really getting into it. Meditating on that particular Scripture. Holy Spirit, when He touches your heart in that way, is drawing your attention to an aspect of God that’s important for you to know. And I also recommend 1 hour of uninterrupted time in Dwelling Prayer.
Jesus began… “What you have shared with them is a priceless gem to deliver and heal. But they must also approach Me with contrition for their sins. If they spoke a word of judgment, harshness, were unkind, or harbored bad thoughts in their mind. If they looked down on others and treated them below themselves – all of this behavior must stop.
“You must love your brother as you love yourself. You must honor others above yourself. You must pray for them and ask Me to show you how they suffer their own private hell, so you can have compassion on their faults.
“And remember always… What you see as a fault in your brother may be his only fault. But what you don’t see in yourself might be a huge stack of faults I have not yet revealed to you.
“Self-righteousness is deadly. Lashing out at others and judging them is deadly. Finding fault with others is deadly — that is, if you want to be raptured. If you want to be counted worthy.
“These things MUST stop. And I will help you if you make an honest and consistent effort. I will turn a raging, bull-headed monster into a gentle and kind person—always aware of the needs of others. Always patient and praying for others, understanding their pain, and even caring for them in spite of the disagreements they might have with one another.
“Your life will change. You will love your brother as you love yourself, no matter how cruel they have been to you. You will see things from their viewpoint. Even if you think they are blind, you will at least understand. And you will come to know the vile sewer of sin you still have left in yourself, hidden away. And this will keep you from lifting an eyebrow at another soul. You will have contempt for yourself and patience for your brother.
“You will be a living saint. This is where I wish to take you. The question is… Is this where you want to go?”
