Called into a New Season – A Word from the Lord

Here is a Word that God delivered to us this past month at Janesville Apostolic Ministries. It blessed us all so much I wanted to share what Papa God said, to us and to you.  If you would like to listen, here is the MP3 with my husband Bob Rasmussen delivering the Word that God gave to us all:

My Beloved, My children, My loves,

I speak to you knowing the End from the Beginning. I speak to you knowing the End from the Beginning. First I want to speak to you the End that I see. The first ending I see is a NEW SEASON for you. The beginning is closing that season my love, but it’s time to step into the NEW SEASON. You know what I have placed upon your heart. You have asked me to do this for you. Step into it, but fear not for I will be with you. I love you, I have faith in you. Have faith in me that I can get you to this new season. Step and grow in me in this new season. REJOICE, the plans I have for your are great! Greater than you could ever imagine.

My love, my dearest love, I did not create this world of sorrow. That was not my plan. I hear your cries. I feel your pain.  I have prepared a place for you. There will be no more sorrow and no more pain. But here and now there is pain. And I see the End from the Beginning. And in the end, I see JOY!  I see JOY for you. So weep now, but trust in Me knowing that in the End it is JOY – no more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain.

My Beloved, one more thing. I see the End from the Beginning. There is that other thing that I have laid on your heart. The thing that you want to let go of but just can’t seem to want to. Today I release you. The End I see is FREEDOM. The Beginning is shackles falling.  I call them off in my own NAME because there is no other Name.

I love you. I call you HEALED, I call you FREE. I call you JOYFUL. I call you into this NEW SEASON for I am the LORD your God. I love you. I am with you.

 

 

Here’s Your Sign

Looking back through my old journals I came across this wonderful story of how God gives us signs. It is still true today.  This particular story was from  a time when I had left my abusive husband and the kids and I had our own place finally.  I was working at an Assisted Living Center and brought my kids to daycare at 5:30 am so I could be at work at 6:00 am.  The daycare would feed them breakfast and bus them to school.

From Sunday 7-3-05

Pastor’s message was “give me children lest I die” – Rachel’s prayer from the Old Testament.

Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, “Give me children, or else I die!” (Genesis 30:1 NKJV)

Our prayer that day was, “God, give us a passion for lost souls.  Let us pray for the Harvest – for laborers to GATHER,  for the harvest is plentiful.”

From Mon 7-4-05 (the next morning)

5:30 am.  I went to my car to go to work and looked down at my feet.  By the passenger door there were grains of wheat on the floor.

 God spoke to me and said, “Those are people, gather them.”

I went back to my apartment and got a zip-lock.  I picked up each wheat kernel and carefully put it in the bag.  There was also a seed there too. I picked that up and placed it in the bag. I went to work, and just wondered. What am I supposed to do with these seeds? These people?

After work I stopped by my Pastor and his wife’s house.  It had been bothering me all day.  It’s like, ok, thanks God, but what does that mean? Sometimes I’m a little slow…

They confirmed what I thought. They said,  “that is your sign, it’s harvest time!”  I gave them the bag, the wheat, and the seed, and thanked God for the sign!  So, I say to you, my friends – IT’S HARVEST TIME!  Jesus is not here yet, and it’s still HARVEST TIME!

GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU:

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.  Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38 NKJV)

 

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
 For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
He has blessed your children within you.
 He makes peace in your borders,
And fills you with the finest wheat. (Psalm 147:12-14 NKJV)

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,

You are the Lord of the Harvest.  Use us as your laborers today.  Let us gather each grain of wheat, each precious person,  for your Kingdom, for your glory. Forgive us for overlooking your children.  Open our eyes to see your kids.  Open our ears to hear their cries.  Let us love them as You do, showering them with mercy and grace, in Jesus Name.
