Alive to tell TRUTH

These pictures tell stories….LORD, awake the childlike faith within. ~

Years ago, I was fascinated by certain types of music. I have sense sought God about what he desires my eargates to take in.  One song that I would sing at a young age, was live to TELL. I want to take a moment to look at this song.

“Live To Tell”

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall[Chorus:]A man can tell a thousand lies
I’ve learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, ’till then
It will burn inside of me

I know where beauty lives
I’ve seen it once, I know the warm she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can’t take that from me

[chorus]

[2nd Chorus:]

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I’d never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

[chorus]
[2nd chorus]

If you will notice, the song is about abuse, escape and secrets. People could relate because the melody is catchy, and the message is pertinent. Now, this singer needs prayer. All people all over he world need prayer. I could relate, because even though I did not know it then officially, I had gone through many secrets, pain, and heartache that was hidden. The enemy tried to keep it hidden. BUT GOD.
He is clear, what was done in the dark will come to light. IT always does. I mean ALWAYS. Today, was thanking HIM for taking care of us. For exposing evil plans and plots, and saving our lives daily. See, He alone is sovereign. When a season is finished, and God has called us to walk away, but LOVE in secret, we must.
If we confess sins from fear, or from religion, guess what happens? WE stay impure. But, if we do so from FAITH and confidence in HIM, we do not. We are cleansed and purified. We must ONLY live to tell TRUTH. We can expose spirits yes, but we must NOT slander people. Forgive us LORD, by faith for any places we have erred. Thank you GOD that you alone will make ways out of no way. You alone will open holy doors and holy Glory windows, as it is time, and your plan comes into holy revelation in your time only.
Lord, we ask from FAITH for you to cleanse, purify and sanctify the BODY. We ask that you alone reveal who is for you and against you. Thank you for keeping us hidden in you. Because, your LOVE sustains us, and your BLOOD covers us. Thank you for connecting us to holy connections, and cutting off all unholiness. Thank you for using us to be your hands and feet to reach the lost. It really is an order to be a vessel for the Heavenly Kingdom.
We choose to be present with you LORD on earth, as in heaven. We thank you for your LOVE which supersedes ALL things. As others stand in awe of you in us, we stand in AWE as well. IT is you alone who is completing and carrying out the Glorious plan you have. You cause us to be able to live to TELL the TRUTH of your Heavenly Kingdom. We live to be used to expose and vanquish darkness. Through the power and name of Jesus Christ.
This entry took 3 days. I cannot tell you how many times, I have heard, just give me 3 days. GOD is faithful, He just is. He resurrects what is needed, always. Our job is to LOVE and to be in full agreement with God’s plans. It does not mean we will never “mess up.” But, it does mean as we walk through it, we will learn, grow and repent for faltering as we go.
Another song came to me….a very different kind of song.

Waterfall by : Chris Tomlin
Oh God, my God I seek You
I wanna move when You move
You’re more than I could long for
I thirst for YouYou’re an ocean to my soul
To my soulYour love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls, too deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall

Oh God, my God I seek You
In this dry and desert land
You lead me to streams of mercy
Once again

You’re an ocean to my soul
To my soul

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls, too deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall

It’s coming like a flood
I’m dancing in the rain
Everything I’ve done
Is covered in rivers of grace, amazing

It’s coming like a flood
I’m dancing in the rain
I lift up my hands
Your love never changes, amazing

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free
You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls, too deep
Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

Waterfall, waterfall

The first set of lyrics is about pain and hurt. This one is a praise anthem. Which is better to focus on? It is better to stay focused on what is true, noble and pure. To let GOD’s word and LOVE be an ointment to our soul. It is more pleasing to GOD, and gives HIM more access.
This world is broken. It had to become broken. How can you accept what the world naturally rejects, if it has not touched you? Rejoice in the trials, I heard this just this morning. I was sitting before the throne. I was asking questions. I did not ask them from doubt, but from wonder. THAT is child like faith. It is when we can come to GOD and seek HIS wisdom, because we know HE has handled it already. It is when we can come rejoicing in the midst of everything that appears a challenge.
Again, HE is faithful still and HIS LOVE lives to tell the TRUTH. People are running out of time. I say this not to scare anyone, but to make people aware. God’s plans will happen and ONLY His LOVE will sustain us. But, if we reject it, or the opportunity to give it, because we are making it about us, we seriously miss out on ETERNal LIFE. Not all roads lead to Heaven. There was a time when there was grace to say yes, and not change completely. But, that season has ended.
God is demanding transformation. He will not settle for religion anymore. If you want to survive this war, it will take unconditional surrender and commitment. Because, if not….well, you should know what will come. It is not eternal rest. It IS eternal torture instead. I chose this day to serve GOD. I choose HIS ways in ALL ways. Whom do you serve? Will you LIVE to tell HIS truths?

Psalms 68:20

God is to us a God of deliverances; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.

Proverbs 10:2

Ill-gotten gains do not profit, But righteousness delivers from death.

Proverbs 11:4

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death.

Hosea 13:14

Shall I ransom them from the power of Sheol? Shall I redeem them from death? O Death, where are your thorns? O Sheol, where is your sting? Compassion will be hidden from My sight.

Acts 2:27

BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT ABANDON MY SOUL TO HADES, NOR ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY.

Hebrews 5:7

In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety.

Acts 2:31

he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that HE WAS NEITHER ABANDONED TO HADES, NOR DID His flesh SUFFER DECAY.

Romans 6:9

knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him.

2 Corinthians 5:1

For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Revelation 1:18

and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

These are excerpts….

Also you can google open topics…and get more scriptures on overcoming death. The key is this, we can receive LIFE of death or life that has hidden death. God wants a pure mixture. He wants ALL of us, and HE wants to purify death from our lives. He desires us to see through His eyes, and not this world’s.

You are ALIVE to tell TRUTH. We are NOT here to spread lies. WE are made to LOVE and worship GOD and spread that LOVE everywhere we go. Lord, we repent for any lies the enemy has spoken through us. We take full responsibility on behalf of ourselves and others who refuse to, or don’t know how. We thank you for cleansing your land. For bringing what YOU desire to be forefront, no matter what it takes. Forgive us LORD, for allowing anything else but your LOVE to influence us. WE choose to surrender unconditionally to your will today. We praise you. In Jesus name, Amen.
