Yesterday, I was in a class at church, and the class was nearly
over, and the Lord impressed on me a particular scripture. I
immediately turned to the verse, and sat there wondering exactly
what the Lord was trying to show me. The verse had nothing
particular to do with the subject of the class, so I went into
the worship service, and decided to get back to it later.
My afternoon was very busy, with a picnic, and visiting my
youngest son, and I didn't have time to get back to the verse
until later in the evening. However I felt like I was in
the Spirit all day, if you know what I mean. Sort of like John.
Finally after a long day, I was relaxing in front of the TV, and
I picked up my bible and began to read, when the Spirit came on
me in a very strong fashion.
Not wanting to quench the Spirit, I scrambled to turn off the
TV, and focus my full attention on what He would show me.
I was reading Isaiah 66, and it began to just come alive, like
only the Holy Spirit can illuminate.
I am not really ready to share what He was showing me, at this
time, but I will say this.
I got the strongest message, from the Holy Spirit, that now is
the time to get in the Spirit, and stay in the Spirit !
Don't get out, and don't let anyone pull you out ! Stay in the
I thought of the five foolish Virgins, who were caught
Don't be one!!!
