"RE:  Susan Bentley--conundrum [my highlighting] and hope"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
Susan, I hope that the LORD puts some import on the weekly Torah portion [Parshah] read on each particular Sabbath.  I highlighted the word, conundrum, in your post, and I hope to address it--as well as encourage you in your faith.
 
On May 21, 2011/Iyyar 17, 5771 we are to read Leviticus 25:1 to 26:2This will include discussions of Sabbath years, Jubilee years, and the institution of the kinsman redeemer practice [see the book of Ruth, also].
 
On a related note [of God showing that He remembers you, Susan], I offer up these scriptures as a prayer for you:
 
    "I have been young, and [now] am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread."  Psalm 37:25
 
    "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling."  Psalm 68:5
 
    "I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
    "Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
    "This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
    "The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
    "Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
    "Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
    "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing."
                                                                                                                Psalm 34:4-10
To those who obey His Word, the LORD says,
    "The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none."  Deuteronomy 28:12
 
In fact, God invites us to expect blessings as a result of obedience to His Holy Spirit:
    "Bring 935 ye all the tithes 4643 into the storehouse 214, that there may be meat 2964 in mine house 1004, and prove 974 me now herewith 2063, saith 559 the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635, if I will not open 6605 you the windows 699 of heaven 8064, and pour you out 7324 a blessing 1293, that [there shall] not [be room] enough 1767 [to receive it]."  Malachi 3:10
 
If the LORD does not declare a blessing in this life, as regards this passage, then the heavenly fulfillment is not to be described by any words we now possess.  And yet, it is written,
    "Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
    "Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
    "Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring [it] to pass."  Psalm 37:3-5
 
As far as giving goes, there are two pertinent scriptures:
    "Upon 2596 the first 3391 [day] of the week 4521 let 5087 0 every one 1538 of you 5216 lay 5087 by 3844 him 1438 in store 2343, as 3748 302 [God] hath prospered him 2137, that 3363 0 there be 1096 no 3363 gatherings 3048 5119 when 3752 I come 2064."  1 Corinthians 16:2
    "Every man 1538 according as 2531 he purposeth 4255 in his heart 2588, [so let him give]; not 3361 grudgingly 1537 3077, or 2228 of 1537 necessity 318: for 1063 God 2316 loveth 25 a cheerful 2431 giver 1395."
                                                                                                                                    2 Corinthians 9:7
 
And don't be embarrassed because you have little.  Whatever you give out of your necessity far outdistances the gifts of those who give out of their excess.  [Luke 21:1-4]
 
Please note that after Luke 21:1-4 follows a discussion of the end times in which we now live.
 
How then shall we live/give?
    "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
    "In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6
 
    "Your word [is] a lamp to my feet And a light to my path."  Psalms 119:105
 
Finally,
    "And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
    "And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
    "Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us."  1 John 3:22-24
 
In Jehovah Jireh [The LORD will Provide--Genesis 22:10-14],

"Sabrina"

Hi Doves,

I also have a question for you all.  Do any of you subscribe to the emails from Sabrina who posts here and Susan in the USA with the letters from the LORD which seem to be coming more often and more urgently.  I read them and find they have the unmistakable ring of authority.  The LORD is pleading with us to "get right with him" before it is too late and informs us that we are in the last days.  I have been emailing the letters to friends and family and praying for opportunities to do more.  The latest letter (one of them) is difficult though as God exhorts us to put the world away and our hopes and ambitions for this world - and concentrate on becoming Holy so we may be fit to leave.  I am unemployed, looking for a job, have rent to pay and can only exist here a couple more months unless I find work.  I'm very confused on whether to leave the cares of the world to themselves and not go ahead looking for work etc - or to keep on as I have been (looking for work and finding  a way to stay in my home).  It's a conundrum over which I am exceedingly puzzled.  IF the letters are genuine - then it appears our time is indeed short and I should be out there evangelizing more instead of occupying myself with worldly matters.  I think the latest letters from Sabrina and Susan will be posted by Sabrina either today or tomorrow - I would be grateful for your input having read them with discernment lead by the Holy Spirit.....
 
Love to all,
Your Sister In Christ,
Susan
