You are not to “evoke” anything, but to write. Write as you write. I trust you in editing.
Do not look one day or another for words from me. Some days shall be days of rest, and some of growth. All things have a time and place. There is no hurry.
You worry about your credibility, and you are angry that Faithwriters removed your postings. Your wife is right. Faithwriters is a very small pool from which to start, and their accommodations and requirements make them inadequate for what I intend for you.
The forums that I intend for you to reach will be made obvious to you in time. And, until then, you may continue to write and post to Faithwriters. There are a those who will recognize what needs to be seen.
Do you hear nothing that I say? I warned you duly that you would be met with rejection, especially by your fellow Christians. Did not the Jews reject Christ, who was sent among them? His ministry was not of this world either, though he kept scripture in his keeping.
People are not afraid of My word. They are afraid of trusting what may be another wolf in sheep’s clothing. That is why I choose messengers who are unwilling to be messengers, and press them until they are ready. A willing messenger might more easily fall from pride.
Trust takes time, and writing takes time as well. As I said, son, there is no hurry. Those who have ears will hear you. All I ask is that you continue to write when I command you to.
Its failings aside, the message had a point which I wanted you to take. The messenger obeys, and has faith. It is true that I would not “mess with you” as you said, but some trials of faith may seem that way. Not all victories on the spiritual battlefield are apparent in the world. I ask that you have faith in the seen and the unseen.
I see that you are using my gift, and I am grateful. Realize that this is a gift, and a tool, but not all prayers, ministries, and miracles are “generated” as you perceive them to be. Tools are meant to be used by the hands, but when God works, there is no need for hands to work. Let the Lord be made manifest as He will.
Much of this is for you, to teach you how to write and what to write. I have sent you some who are very skilled at this, as you have guessed.
I know that you do not want people to think you are crazy. Think on this, however. Would you prefer to be the prophet who entertains the rich and the influent, seeking and gaining their praises? Would you prefer to be the televangelist, charismatically leading the hungry to give their bread to his own causes?
Did John the Baptist dine with Herod and his wife, and minister over cool breezes wafted by the hands of the enslaved and downtrodden?
My servants are stoned, jailed, and crucified. Rejection, by comparison, seems minor, does it not?
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
