Conversation Number 6

Conversations are updated as He leads.

The following conversation between a believer and God is not meant to represent a specific theology or theological truth. It represents one believer's struggle and the response that believer represents as God's truth for that believer and that believer alone.

Good morning Lord. I love you.
Good morning my son. I love you back.

What do I say Lord? What do I tell people who need you and who want to be close to you? What do I say to people who are in pain and whose pain separates them from you? What do I say to people who have chaotic lives and who try to act like everything is OK when they know they are only acting? Please give me words, Lord.
Tell them to look within. Tell them I cannot be found in form but only in substance. Tell them to look in their heart, for that is where I live. People can find me in songs, in books, in stories, in people, even in the worst places on earth, because I live in every human being. Yes, I know it is hard to tell I am within some people. Some people are full of hate, anger, bitterness, pain, and venom. These types try very hard to stay away from me and deny I am within them. When you are in pain you must look for me with more force and exert yourself against the pain or chaos of life. I am always with you and them. We cannot be separated, except by Satan and your cooperating with Satan. Oh, I know you want to protest that you cooperate with Satan, but when you are not turned toward me, you are turned toward Satan. When you are turned toward me you can still be in pain, still feel separated from me, may even still think I do not exist, but that is an illusion. It is an illusion that you and I are separated when you or others are in pain. It is a deception put on you by the great deceiver. I am always within you so I know what is going on within you. I know your pain. I know your potential. I know all of your past and all of your present.

How can pain be an illusion? I hurt and feel pain. The pain is real.
Yes, I know the pain is real. What is illusory is that we are separated. We are not separated when you are in pain, in grief, or in torment. It may seem like we are separated. It may seem like I am not there. It may seem like I am dead. Remember that I am God and no one will defeat me. No one will tower over me. I will not lose one sheep from my flock who wants to stay with me. We are not separated. You must get this through your thick, pain-filled head and body. When you think I am not there, then you must make an extra effort to find me within you heart and soul. As you make these extra efforts to find me from within the pain, chaos, and darkness of your life, you are piling up points on the scoreboard. You are winning the game even if you cannot see the score right now. Don’t be fooled. Don’t be misled. The pain in life is much like a game or contest. I have told you before you are being tested. Another way to look at this is that you are being contested. Your faith is being tested by Satan who wants your faith, and your body dead. This game is a game of eternal life or death. It is literally that serious a matter. Staying together, keeping in contact with each other, communicating every day with each other in prayer will win us the game. I know you want the contest to end. You want me to take over and vanquish the other side, end the game over and declare us the winner. However, I cannot do some things because you have to play out the game. The game will be over when the buzzer sounds. Only I know when that time will come and it is not for you to know or for you to find out. The ultimate victory in life is your doing battle against the darkness by being with me, on my side, and living with me in your heart. By necessity, I am a small quiet voice within you. To hear my voice in the darkness that surrounds you requires that you cast aside all of yourself. Cast aside your pain, frustration, doubt, anxiety, and any other garbage that is hanging around your neck. Yes, I know what you are thinking. You are thinking you cannot just "cast aside" the garbage. I am not saying you can make every problem disappear. What I am saying is that no problem can separate us if you want to be with me. No problem has that power. There may be moments when it seems we are not together. There are events and places in the world that appear to be totally Godless. But I am there and I will not be driven away. When the darkness comes into your life or into a part of my flock no matter where they are and they are seeking me but cannot find me then my wrath is building up against the darkness. When you need me and the pain of life is so great you think I am not there, then there is a wrath building up in me that will be poured out. Always know that the opponent, the deceiver, or Satan will pay a price for what he has done to you personally and to the world. There is a point at which I will take no more. There is a point, you might call it a breaking point, where I will take no more of Satan, no more evil, no more apostasy, no more sin, no more rebellion, no more darkness, no more of this willful madness against me. At that point, I will cover my flock with one hand and with the other hand the wrath will be poured out. Yes, you can feel my wrath now. Yes, you can feel my anger now. There will be no excuses. There will be no good reasons left to use to try and stop my wrath from being poured out. Many things will be destroyed. The high and the mighty will be shown to be the weaklings they are. The most high will be made the most low. The time is coming soon. Yes, you know something is about to happen and it is. There will be signs and warnings. Most will ignore these signs and warnings. The signs and warnings will be ignored or minimized. Only a few will read the signs for what they are. If people only knew of my love, my care, and my tenderness, yet even when people know these things, the darkness is so thick in the world many people would not care.

What must we do Lord?
You must be devout. Pray. Worship. Work for me. Live for me. Do as much as you can for me. Live a clean and holy life. Do not sin or become steeped in immoral things. When you hurt, think of me and think of how important it is for you and I to win this game. Make it a point every day to be immersed in my love no matter how great the pain might be. Even if you lose me for a day or two, keep pushing to be one with me. I will touch you. I promise I will touch you.

Thank you, Lord. I love you.
Thank you my son, I love you too.
