ARE YOU NOW READY?
Pastor Lois Robinson
February 21, 2009
As we began a 21-day called church fast on February 2, 2009, I asked God to speak to me. I prayed for a now, specific word from the
Lord for the local body as well as a word to the corporate body. It is now the night of February 21, 2009. One day remains before the fast is
concluded and here is what the Lord has spoken to me:
•      Are you now ready? (Joshua 24:15; Matthew 6:24) Choose you this day whom you will serve—whether it will be mammon--those things that
satisfy only the flesh--or whether you are now ready for the higher call of looking beyond your emotions and obeying what the Spirit is
saying to you. I have longed to show the wonders of My grace and mercy to and through you.
•      Are you now ready? Stop relying on what you see with your natural eyes and what you hear with your natural ears. He that hath ears
to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church, listen to My voice and be led by My Spirit. (Mark 12:29-30) “Hear O Israel,
the Lord thy God is one Lord and thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind, and with
all thy strength. Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.”

•     Are you now ready? Are you ready to get off the ground and stop playing around with turkeys and begin to soar as an eagle?
Only when you move from the place of obscurity will you be able to see and to know where it is you must go. I am taking you somewhere.
•     Now is the time! Get off the popular path of prideful pleasure seeking that is winding around dangerous dead end curves of despair, steering
you up steep hills of high anxiety and driving you down into deep valleys of depression, only to collide with other speeding, stressed out,
seekers of pleasure, all leading down the same tricked out street where Satan lies in wait to capture, enslave, and deceive accident
victims--those who are in debt, distressed, discontent, disillusioned, disheartened, deceived, or just plain disobedient. These are
common occurrences for those whose view is obscured by missed opportunities, long seasons of delay and failed attempts amidst an economic disaster.
The road not taken, however, has no tread marks, no skid marks, and no trudged out ruts to follow. So I caution you, therefore, that you will see things
you’ve never seen and hear things you’ve never heard just because this is a new path. All you see and hear will not all be good, neither will it
all be bad. But don’t be too quick to decide it’s all evil just because it may be unfamiliar. Some of it will be of Me because I am moving in some
new and different ways in this hour and you must seek Me often to know what really is of Me.
•     Here is the crux of the whole matter: The world’s state of affairs then, now or in the future, did not, has not, and will not catch me off
guard. (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 13:8) I am the Lord and I change not! Wall Street’s Stock Market is risky at best and yet the children of the world
invest in it for the promise of a better present and future financial well-being. (Luke 16:8) I say to you again, the children of the world
are wiser than the children of Light. Investment in temporal things, such as the stock market, has its limitations. (Luke 8:36) So, tell me,
what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Let me caution you again: It is good to plan for your financial
future by making good sound investments. However, it is not good to do the one and leave the other undone. Invest in me. Buy stock in My kingdom.
There is no meltdown in my economy. My Kingdom Market has no lack. (Phil 4:19) I will still supply all your needs according to My riches in
glory by Christ Jesus, My Son. (Psalm 1:1) The whole world is in My hand. The more shares you own, the greater the dividend.
Unlike the world’s market which can only promise financial wealth IF everything goes according to the plan, WHEN not IF, you lay up your treasures
in heaven where neither moth nor rust can destroy and thieves cannot steal it, (Matt. 6:20) YOU LOCK IN for yourself financial and eternal security
with My fixed interest set on you and everything that concerns you if you will do first things first. (Matt. 6:33) Seek first My kingdom and My righteousness.
THEN, all the other things will be added to you. That’s the place of elevated view that allows you to see your way out regardless what comes.
That’s the place of peace and tranquility that only comes from knowing and serving The Almighty God. It is a place of repositioning.
•     I know what is ahead and I am prepared. I am with you and I will show you how to get where you need to be. I will lead you in the way
that you shall go. I love those who are Mine and I take good care of My own. (Psalm 46:10) Be still and know that I am God.
But even as you “be still” in My presence, you must keep moving. As paradoxical as that may sound, it is not! You must remember that what I have
spoken is true and I have said that I will never leave you nor will I forsake you (Heb. 13:5). Quite to the contrary, oftentimes when I am trying to
hold you and gently lead and guide you, you run off and leave me. Every promise I have made is true and I will do what I have said I will do.
Many have become victims on that popular path of pleasure seeking because of delay, but beloved, I am not late. I am never late. I am always
on time and you must learn to stay the course until I come in fulfillment of My promise to you and then you must stay the course in fulfillment
of your promise to Me. Keep fighting the good fight of faith. I am aware of the hour. I am aware of the economy. I have not moved off my position so don’t you move off yours.
• I AM READY. ARE YOU NOW READY?
