Nothing Is Impossible!

Karen Zerby

By MariaMaria #548 CM/FM 3316 10/00

Dear loves,

1. I’m so excited with all the Lord has poured forth for this very special Feast Celebration 2001. As is evident from Peter’s account of some of the recent progress that has been made since we entered the era of action, these are awesome days‚ and things will only get better. In spite of all the good news and the many advances of the Family overall, you personally might feel a bit weary with the battle. I understand. That’s to be expected. If we’re headed into our most fruitful time ever, then it stands to reason that the Enemy will fight. We’ve seen his attacks firsthand. He has tried to hit hard in our WS units with personal battles, dis­couragement, delays, afflictions, etc. I don’t think there’s a single person who has escaped this time of testing. But, there is a good reason for it! It’s worth the fight‚ because the Lord has some magnificent rewards and victories in store for us, which we’ll learn more about during these Feast days.

2. This GN contains a message that gives new insight about the impossible. It’s challenging and vision-increasing. But before we get to that, I want to share with you some sweet balm of encouragement from our Husband, just in case you’re feeling a little down or incapable or like you don’t have much umph left in you for these intense battles. You’ll see that those feelings of weakness that you’re experiencing can open the door to a wonderful gift from the Lord.

Because You Can’t—I Can!

3. (Jesus speaking:) My children, you feel so little, so puny, so incapable, so nothing and so un­worthy. These days right now when My Family is being tried and tested should be looked on as cherished times. I know this is difficult to understand at the moment, yet trust Me. These days will prove to be your most valuable asset as the future unfolds.

4. The era of action has begun, and I’m pos­itioning you, placing each of My brides in strategic positions around the globe. The battles rage in the spirit. The heat is rising and the fight is growing more intense than in times past. It’s a battle royal! As I have told you on many occasions, these fighting days when I allow you and your loved ones to be tried and tested to the limits of both your strength and patience are not without a purpose.

5. It is precisely in times such as this that I teach you to walk by faith‚ not sight. You’ve heard this more than once, that the trying of your faith is more precious than gold, but during these days you will come to know faith as you have never known it before. The purpose of this time‚ these present days, is to help you grow to possess pure, white, unshakable faith—faith that will not be daunted; faith that will not flinch‚ nor tremble, nor waver, nor even consider the possibility of giving up; faith that doesn’t consider the prospect of surrender.

6. In these days I wish to stretch your faith to limits which not only you have never experienced, but that no other humans who have ever lived have experienced! This is the destiny of the children of David of the Time of the End—to exercise greater faith than the world has ever seen. I want more than to enrich your faith; I want your faith to reach the outer limits! I want your faith to break all records, for it must, My loves.

7. This is the only type of faith that will over­­come the world. This is the faith that I have carefully, lovingly, and wisely cultivated in you, My chosen ones of the Time of the End. This is the same faith that My Father also cultivated in Me when I walked on Earth as a man. It took time. It took years of trial. It took years of purging‚ years of being faithful in little things, years of learning patience and humility, years of being tested over and over and over in all areas. But it was worth it—every minute of it. Believe Me, these tests are necessary, good, and very positive.

8. These are good times and good days, for through the tests I’m bringing you to the place of full faith—that place where you continue to try when you don’t feel like trying; when you keep walking forward even though you feel like collapsing; when you refuse to quit even though you don’t have an ounce of strength left in you; when you praise Me with your last breath. This is the place where each of you must be in order for Me to do the impossible through you in this new era of action. When you get to this state where you truly know and accept that without Me you can do nothing, then I am able to come in and take over, and this is when the imposs­ible becomes possible. Then there are no limits to what you can do, because it’s not you, it’s Me working through you, and all things are poss­ible for Me!

9. With man—that is‚ with your limited strength and ability—there are impossibilities, but when you fully realize your need for Me and you let Me take full control and work as only I can, then all is possible. When you reach the point of letting go of yourself, even though it’s completely contrary to your natural mind, then I can bless you and reward you for that demonstration of trust in Me. Then‚ even though it seems hopeless and you feel weaker and slower and dumber than ever, you still believe that in spite of all that, I will come through for you. The more you reach the point of recognizing your own weakness, the more you know you need Me; and the more you know you need Me, the more you call out to Me and depend on Me. As your need and dependence on Me grows, so does My power within you grow‚ until you reach the point where My Spirit and power rests fully upon you. Then you truly become a new creature in Me‚ one who defies all the odds and can do the impossible!

10. Sit up and take note, My dear ones. Continue on in faith, believing. You can have the confidence that this is the state I want you to be in—feeling you can’t do it‚ feeling in­capable, feeling too weak to continue. Now that you’ve acknowledged you feel so weak, so incapable‚ that you don’t have it in you, that you know nothing, yet you call out to Me, this is when and where we make progress. This is My cue. This is when My Spirit can rest upon you. It’s not until you get to this place that truly great things begin to happen. This is a great thing, because when My Spirit rests upon you, there are no impossibilities to you.

11. Yes, you can’t do it. Be thankful you can’t, for if you could, you would only be able to go so far. But because you can’t, there’s no limit to what you can do‚ because I will have to work through you. I will have to take over. There’s no other option. I will have to come into you, possess you, work within you—and this is when things really start clicking. This is terrific! It’s a wonderful place to be. I know that the thought of being weak and the feelings you experience when you’re sorely tested go against the ­human grain—yet if you didn’t experience these feelings, you would never come to know what it is to walk by faith alone and not by sight.

12. Only those who walk by faith alone will be able to continue on in the days of action. You’ve heard Me say this so many times. You’ve heard David say the familiar verse “Walk by faith and not by sight” over and over. Now you will come to fully realize what this means. So walk on solely by faith and faith alone. Praise Me and thank Me that this is all you can do! You can only walk by faith, but because of this, you receive the greater blessings and the greater rewards. Because of this, I can accomplish My greatest work in you and through you. (End of message from Jesus.)

13. (Mama:) It’s always a little mind-boggling when the Lord explains so clearly how He gains such great strides of progress from our weakness. That concept is so contrary to our natural way of thinking. Man’s nature is to want to be strong, and through that strength, to push forward. But in the message we just read, the Lord is telling us that when we’re feeling weak, helpless, and we know we can’t do anything, that’s when miracles start to happen!

14. I want to draw your attention to a very important excerpt of the above message. Our Lover said: “I’m bringing you to the place of full faith—that place where you continue to try when you don’t feel like trying; when you keep walking forward even though you feel like collapsing; when you refuse to quit even though you don’t have an ounce of strength left in you; when you praise Me with your last breath. This is the place where each of you must be in order for Me to do the impossible through you in this new era of action. When you get to this state where you truly know and accept that without Me you can do nothing, then I am able to come in and take over, and this is when the imposs­ible becomes possible.”

15. So if you’ve been feeling like He described—like you can hardly keep trying, like you’re about to collapse, that you don’t have an ounce of strength left—then that’s just perfect‚ because that’s right where you need to be! He doesn’t want you to stay in that state; He’s going to move you beyond that point because then you’re sufficiently out of the way so that He can dwell within you to the point that there are no impossibilities for you!

16. This brings us to our next message, which sheds a lot of light on the impossible and what it means to us, the Children of David.

What Is “Impossible”?

17. (Jesus speaking:) I will tell you what impossible is. Impossible is the creed of fools. It’s the invention of Satan—tailor-made for those who would believe his lies rather than standing on the power of My Word. It’s the religion of those who cannot or will not put Me to the test.

18. Impossible is for quitters. Impossible pollutes minds, breaks hearts‚ and destroys bodies. Impossible creates ill health; it promotes sickness and causes disease to fester. Imposs­ible is the way of cowards, the excuse of the defeated. “It can’t be done‚” “no way,” “it’s imposs­ible”—this is the faith of the living dead, the philosophy of fools, the chant of the simpleton, the motto of the moron. The logic of “it’s impossible” is deadly, for it leads to darkness and ends in death and destruction.

19. Impossible is an impostor—created by the father of lies. Its purpose is to imprison. Impossible is an insult to your intelligence, a threat to your knowledge, a menace to your soul. Impossible opposes all that is truth and sound and right. Wrapped up in this single word “impossible,” such a seemingly innocent and natural conclusion, lies a deadly poison. Impossible is the scourge of mankind; it enslaves and traps and binds. There is no freedom for those who endorse the impossible. There is no power, no light, no life, no liberty. Impossible is a downward spiral—once you are trapped in its grip‚ you go down, down‚ down.

20. Impossible opposes the truth of God. It comes from the depths of Hell. Impossible has no place in Heaven; its reasoning does not exist in the Heavenly realm.

The History of “Impossible”

21. Long, long ago, Lucifer stood at the right hand of God. He bore the light. He was not the light, but he held the light on high for all the inhabitants of the universe to see. He was the standard bearer, the mightiest of all archangels, and he exercised some of the power of Almighty God Himself in helping to rule the universe. Then pride took its grip. Though he held such a high and honored position, Lucifer was no longer satisfied with bearing the light of God—he wanted to be God Himself.

22. Infested with pride‚ he refused to listen to God. He refused to listen to the other angelic forces and to the Heavenly inhabitants. He refused any and all help to see the right. Because he refused to admit he was wrong and say he was sorry, because he chose to hold on to his pride‚ strong delusion set in. Refusing to humble himself before a powerful and awesome God, his own loving, patient, and under­standing ­Father, Lucifer fell. He altered the course of his own des­tiny. He didn’t have to fall; he chose to fall. He chose his own course, all because of his lust for power and his proud refusal to choose the humble way.

23. This is when insanity took tight hold on Lucifer. This is when of his own choosing he was transformed from Lucifer, the bearer of light, to Satan, the Devil, the father of lies. This is when the long trek began. From the moment of that decision, he set out on his hostile mission. From that time on, he set out to live at enmity with God, His creation‚ and His children.

24. When Satan fell, he tried to persuade others of the angels to go with him. Those who accepted his lies became poisoned, drawn away by their own desires. Therefore pride took hold and they were overcome. Hence, Satan and his band of dark angels began to roam the Earth. It wasn’t long before they realized if they were to win others to their side, they would have to come up with a plan, a scheme of some sort‚ something that would convince others to join them rather than continue being loyal and dedicated to the loving and just ways of the Heavenly ­Father. Having declared his own independ­ence from righteous rule, Satan went into business for himself. His goal was to win as many others over to his side as he could. His purpose was to spread his own insanity and delusion to others; to prove that you could live without God, that you could in fact be God.

25. This is how Satan’s plan came into being. That is when he began laying the foundation for his counterfeit kingdom; that is when the plan of his great deception began. Sadly, the precepts of his plan thrive in the world today. They touch every corner of the world. His phil­osophy is booming throughout society at large.

26. I want to speak to you further about one aspect of Satan’s great scheme: One of the ­basic blocks of his plan lies in this hideous word “im­possible.” This is the treacherous creed of the ignorant. “Impossible” is the doctrine of those who look only at the things that are seen, not the things which are unseen. Those who are void of My understanding fall prey to this ugly monster.

27. Impossible is more than a word; it’s a state of mind‚ an attitude. If you don’t nip it in the bud, but instead you feed and cultivate it, it will become an integral part of you, until there is no remedy. Its hold can be seductive‚ for when you yield to it, then no action or effort is required; no overcoming is necessary, for “it’s impossible.” This attitude leads not to victory but to defeat. Those who let it take hold will soon find that if they can be defeated in one area‚ they will be defeated in another, and yet another, and another‚ and another.

28. Impossible is a vicious cycle. It’s the modus operandi for the loser. It thrives in the hearts of those who are heedless of its dangers; it breaks down noble aspirations, shoots down high goals, and shatters dreams. Imposs­ible is a thief in the night, robbing you of courage, zapping you of bravery, while all the while it stands mocking, cackling in laughter when you falter and give way to its erroneous ways. Impossible, in short, renders one useless, as it leaves its prey a laughingstock in the eyes of the impish pests that spread its woes.

Don’t Fall Into

The “Impossible” Trap

29. Do you wonder why I’m giving you this recap of history and this background, some of which you already know? It’s because it’s imperative that you understand the seriousness of the “it’s impossible” trap in relation to the era of action.

30. The days of ignorance are past. You are no longer on a playground, or even working out in a minor training ring, but you have now moved into the big-time arena of life and death. Your Enemy is playing for keeps. I’ll tell you why I’m talking to you in depth about the “impossible.” It’s because right now, as you move forward in the era of action, each of you must continually be on strict guard against this fraud. You must be very militant, constantly on watch against falling victim to this hideous impostor. This is impera­tive if you are going to fulfill your role in this new era.

31. I understand the frame of man and I have mercy. Many times throughout the ages, My people, in a weak moment, have given in to settling down in the “impossible—it can’t be done” state. My Own disciples, both in times past and present, have fallen to this malicious myth time and again. I have been understanding of this, for I know that the human frame is fallible. However‚ in this new era things are destined to be different for you.

32. I have chosen each of you. You are handpicked by Me‚ and I now call you to rise above that which threatens to hold you back. Those of you who have made the choice to follow, I ordain to lead My people in these Last Days. I have given you a new anointing, and now as you take the steps to walk in it, I wish to increase your faith so that you may stand as a testimony to the world that all things are poss­ible with Me. This is why I speak to you at this time about the “impossible” trap, for to be forewarned is to be forearmed. Take note.

33. Never before has the world seen a time like now. Never before has it been so imperative that My called-out ones guard themselves from falling into this pit. Never before has it been so urgent to rise above the impossible. You must not waver, nor give way, nor fall into this trap of Satan. Stick close to Me; I will show you how to steer clear of this hazardous device.

34. Listen clearly now. Watch, pray, beware‚ be alert, be awake, be on guard, lest you fall prey to the “it’s impossible” modus operandi, for this frame of mind challenges the very might and power of God! The “it’s impossible” mindset wishes to defy the very truth of God! You have heard My promise for many years that “all things are possible to him that believeth.” I call you now to stand on this promise—to live it, to put Me to the test! There are no impossibilities to you, My children! Believe it! Live it! Do the impossible!

35. Right now, at this very moment‚ Heaven is bursting with energy—waiting to release great surges of power upon you, the kind of power that makes the impossible possible. ­Satan and his kind know that if they can get you to swallow this sad tale, that if the “it’s imposs­ible” mindset can prevail in even one area of your lives, then they know you will be defeated before you ever have a chance to do the greater works which are your destiny. Satan would love nothing more than to get you to surrender the destiny that is rightfully yours—just as he surrendered his own great destiny because of the pride he was unwilling to forsake.

36. This is why Satan and his band are con­stantly pulling out and springing on you their carnal reasoning—all those seemingly sound and logical excuses that they throw in your face, crying, “That’s impossible,” or, “Oh no, not that. This we can do, but that’s impossible,” or, “Yes, that would be nice, if only … but I’m afraid that’s impossible.” They hit hard. They’re quick and crafty as they conjure up a great number of excuses for “why it can’t be done.” You must reject these inclinations! Call their bluff! Defy them! For I tell you, all things are possible if you believe!

37. This “it’s impossible” mode of operation is a myth! It defies My truth! All things are possible to you, because all things are possible with Me! I cannot lie, I cannot fail‚ I cannot be stopped! Do you understand? There are no alps to you, if you will avail yourselves of My power and help; if you’ll take the step to do your part by trusting Me. There are no im­possibilities. Nothing is too difficult. Nothing is in­conceivable to you, My children, if you will only believe. And believe you must‚ for this is the destiny I have chosen for you—to prove the might and power of the Almighty God of the universe in these Last Days!

Loose the Gift of Faith

That Is Within You

38. I have helped you through the years to cultivate your faith, and right now, in this era of action, I am calling you to exercise your faith in full. Now is the time when your faith will come to full fruition. This is why all the prophets have looked forward to this day, for they know that down through the ages there has never been such a demonstration of full and complete faith as you are destined to demonstrate in the era of action!

39. The era of action has begun; there is no disputing this fact. I have given you a ­vision, along with which I am unfolding the plan of how to bring this vision into focus. In order to do this, right now, starting today‚ I wish for you to let loose‚ unleash the full potential of faith that I have put within you! You must let your faith burn free—for this is the only way you will be able to complete the mission I ask of you now.

40. To the carnal mind the task before you would seem like a “mission impossible,” but I tell you again, there are no impossibilities to you. This is the day of action. You must not say, “But I don’t have the faith,” for I have put the faith within each of you; it comes with the anointing I’ve given you. It’s your destiny. I’ve equipped you with unwavering faith. It’s within you. You don’t have to worry. You don’t have to try to work it up. All you must do is receive it, act on it, believe it‚ and loose the gift of faith that is within you!

41. On this day, as you gather in praise and thanksgiving, as you celebrate this Feast 2001, kneel before Me in prayer and in humility. Where I guide, I always provide—therefore come before Me and allow Me to increase the faith within you. As I have given you My anointing, I also give you a gift of greater faith; all you must do is awaken it. Loose the gift of faith that I give! Let it be stirred up. Put it to use, exercise it! Your job is to take care of this faith, feed your faith, hone this gift, hold on to it for dear life, and don’t let go!

42. As you step out to take action in this new era, all things will be possible to you. My Spirit in you cannot fail as long as you look to Me‚ stay focused on the vision I give, and don’t give up. As long as you do your part by having a believing and yielding heart, all that I ask of you is possible. All you need to fulfill the vision I have given‚ all that I have promised to you in these Last Days—it’s all possible. There are no impossible missions for you, My children; there are only great possibilities!

43. When does the impossible become poss­ible for you?—Right now, today! As you step out and put feet to the faith I have put within you, there will be no impossibilities to you! Impossible does not exist to you! You who trust in Me and lean on Me have no place for the imposs­ible in your hearts‚ because you belong to Me.

Three Safeguards

44. Now that you’ve been forewarned of this deception of the “impossible” devised by ­Satan, I ask you to forearm yourselves. Here is how you can guard yourselves against its contagion:

1) Assiduously* guard yourselves against this pitfall by feeding your faith. You have known this sound spiritual principle for a long time, yet now there is no excuse. If you don’t consistently feed your faith, you’ll soon drop out of the running—and that by your own doing, because of your own neglect. You must live in the Word, both by taking time to read the written Word and also by asking Me everything, listening to My living voice of prophecy, and waiting for My approval in all you do. Continue to move forward in the “Ask Me Everything” mode of operation, for this is your greatest protection. *[diligently; unceasingly; persist­ently]

2) Stay focused on Me at all times, ignoring sur­rounding circumstances that oppose what I tell you to do. You know the story of the day Peter walked on the water. When he first answered My call to him, as he stepped out on the water, he did fine until he took his eyes off Me. It wasn’t only that he looked down and saw the billowing waves, but he allowed himself to become distracted by the boisterous wind. He paid so much attention to the wind that he began looking too much at the surrounding circum­stances, which were running contrary to what I was telling him. He switched his attention too much to that boisterous empty wind, to where he became frightened and started to sink.

Peter lost his main focus on Me, and when this happened, he lost his faith—he was unable to see through the empty wind in that moment. He couldn’t call the Devil’s bluff because he turned his attention too much to the surrounding circumstances rather than staying focused and attuned to My sure voice which was calling him to come.

I will say, however, considering this was one of Peter’s earlier attempts at allowing his faith to be stretched, he did well. Seeing that he did begin to waver, in that moment Peter did the right thing—he didn’t want to stay down‚ so he immediately called out to Me. He cried for help and I was able to help him. Though he sank at the sight of that which he considered impossible‚ he discovered that in calling out to Me I helped him nonetheless, and the im­possible became possible. Peter learned an important lesson that day. He learned the value of staying focused, of not being distracted by the falsities of surrounding circumstances. Peter learned that My Word is stronger than surrounding circumstances, and in the end it’s the only thing that will stand.

3) Use your faith; put it to use every day. In Peter’s case, this famous account of one of his first tests of faith was understandable—he had to fall so that he could learn and grow in deeper faith. But you, My children, who have already been exercised in matters of faith, must now learn to stretch your faith farther and farther if you don’t want to be caught in one of the Devil’s traps in these Last Days. You can do this by exercising your faith more. Put it into play often. Demonstrate it daily to those around you and to the world. Refuse to give in to impossibilities.

Now is the time when you must begin stepping out and exercising your gift of faith to a greater degree by putting it into action, by going to work on the plan of this new era! Step out and prove there are no impossibilities to a man or woman who depends on the power of God! Stretch your faith to greater measures. Take greater leaps of faith every day and defy any and all impossibilities that get in your way.

I’ve given you the “Ask Me Everything” plan to “watch, pray‚ listen and receive.” You’re moving along on this, learning to make this a part of your everyday lives. Now I ask you to amplify this vision—I ask that you “watch, pray, listen, receive‚ and do!” “Watch, pray, listen, receive, and take action!”

Take action like never before! This is the goal for 2001! Let it be the year of action!—The year your faith is boosted!—The year I multiply your gift of faith!—The year of stretching your faith, of exercising it in greater ways than you ever have before!

45. There you have the three safeguards against falling into the pit of the impossible:

  1. Live in My Word.
  2. Stay focused on Me and the job I have given you.
  3. Use your faith, stretch your faith, work your faith; put your faith to use by putting it into action, by stretching it, by taking action. Go to work proving there are no impossibili­ties to the man or woman filled with My Spirit who acts in faith, believing My ­promises.

46. Prove the Devil wrong each time he comes around to hassle you‚ by turning right around and doing the impossible! Defy him by showing him your faith! This is how I’m going to be able to make you a mighty force in the days to come. This is why the whole world will hear about you. This is how you’re going to establish My Kingdom on Earth‚ for you will not only speak the living Word, you will have the living Word running through your veins. You will be the living proof that the impossible is possible with Me, because you will manifest your faith by your actions!

47. To mankind this is a great mystery, how the impossible becomes possible. Yet to those of the Heavenly realm, it is their very nature—there are no impossibilities to the residents of Heaven. They would not even think it! Now it must become your nature also. All things are possible with God, therefore with Me in you, all things are possible to you! Now, as you put these three steps into motion, as you exercise your faith to the full, let this be your protection against falling into the “impossible” pit.

48. In this era, I will work through you to prove to the world that all things are possible to you, because you believe in Me! You are destined to be My living proof. Therefore, I ask you today, loose the gift of full faith I have put within you. Enough of reservation, of doubt, and of holding back! Hold on to Me alone and let the full faith flow!

49. You are to be My showcase to the world, the ones I have chosen to work through to perform the greater works of the Endtime. I give you this assurance: The “impossible” is nothing but a myth. Therefore take heed to this admonition: Stand strong in My power and face down the “impossible”!

50. As the Red Sea was parted for Moses according to My Word; as Sarah gave birth when it was past her time; as the walls of Jericho came down at Joshua’s signal; as Elijah was carried into the Heavens; as Samson received supernatural strength; as My Own earthly mother, Mary, conceived before ever knowing a man and brought Me into the world; as Lazarus was raised from the dead; so all things will be made possible to you. Just as each of My prophets and handmaidens of old held on to their faith and believed‚ your faith also will not fail as long as you stay focused on Me. It is not your doing; it is Mine. This full faith is a gift from Me. Your responsibility is to use it wisely, feed it, cultivate it, and exercise it.

51. Keep putting Me to the test. Keep exercising your faith. Start today with all the things that arise in your daily lives. Stretch your faith more and more each day, and don’t turn back. Defy the impossible, for this is the destiny I have chosen for you! (End of message from Jesus.)

52. (Mama:) What an awesome, inspiring challenge! This certainly deserves to be read again and again, to be studied until we have grasped the full message. There are so many important jewels and promises in this message that I ask that you please take the time necessary to absorb it and revel in its beauty. The Lord wants to give each of us a precious gift—the ability to exercise full faith such as has not been seen in any of His other children. It’s a monumental responsibility, a sobering calling, but also a very special privilege.

53. I know you won’t let Him down, but you will rise to this occasion with great enthusiasm and take hold of His promises. Then, as we follow our wonderful Husband with full faith‚ we will be able to accomplish the great miracles that we are destined to perform in the era of action.

54. Thank you, sweet loves, for staying faithful unto the End. You won’t be disappointed, and neither will the world we’re trying to reach, as they will look upon you and marvel at the power, light and love of our Heavenly King, Savior and Lover! It will be worth it all. Let’s hang on and stay full of the power of full faith until He calls us Home. I love you!

Always, with love and affection in our Husband,

Mama

Dear loves, mates, and co-workers‚

1. Peter and I pray you’re having a wonderful time during this year’s Feast celebration. We’re so privileged to have such a wealth of Heavenly riches. No one else in the world has heard the awesome truths we’re feasting on during these special days.

2. It’s important to remember as we read these messages that seem so magnificent and im­pressive that the Lord isn’t just trying to inspire us with beautiful passages of inspirational reading. These words are real and they signify change and greater power in our lives. The Lord is explaining truths that will and should affect our actions, the fruit we bear and our walk with Him. Things should be different as we strive, by His grace‚ to do what He instructs, and as we wait and watch by faith to see the fulfillment of His promises.

3. This next and final message is especially important, because in it our Husband is explaining not only more of His Own experiences on Earth, but also telling us about a big change in the spirit world that is happening as a result of this revelation. This is something that will make a major difference in your life personally. It’s a tremendous reward that the Lord is giving each of us because we’ve made the right choices!

4. If you’ve been battling since entering the era of action, if you wonder why things have been particularly difficult, then this message will help shed some light on what you’ve been going through and why. You’ve been tested, but there is a reason. In this awe–inspiring prophecy, the Lord explains that He went through what He calls a crisis of faith, and because He called out to His Father, He was given the most ­precious possession He had ever received. His ­Father gave Him what He needed to do the job He had to do. This has special bearing on you and what you’re going through at this very point in time. This is something that you’ll see affects your life in a very big way. I’ll let our dear Love explain this for Himself.

When Jesus Was Young

5. (Jesus speaking: ) Dear Family, if you are to continue carrying out the plans and goals for the era of action, if you are to continue to meet the needs and demands that lie ahead of you, some changes must be made. The arrangements for these changes start with Me; the ball is in My court at this moment. Therefore I will now give the order to release additional aids for you, My loves, without delay. This order and the resultant additional help you will receive must not be detained longer.

6. I’ve given each of you who have chosen to continue into the era of action a fresh new anointing. I’ve spoken to you about the dangers of the impossible and assured you that this phantom does not exist for you, if you’ll believe and do what I show you. I’ve increased your faith by enhancing the gift of faith within your hearts and spirits‚ so that you can cultivate this strong faith, feed it, practice it‚ and live it. I’ve shared with you My Own lessons on learning the art of rising above, and have given you a list of practical tips and advice on how you can do the same. Now I want to give you what you are lacking to facilitate the work ahead. Let Me explain.

7. All through My life as a boy growing up on Earth, the Spirit was preparing Me and guiding Me. My faith was tested as a child. In My adolescence and on into My twenties, there were many tests I had to pass. All these experiences helped My faith to grow and prepared Me for yet bigger tests I would be faced with in the years to follow during My public ministry. Remember, I had to pass all the same tests that you have to pass. I had to go through the same as you; otherwise I would not be worthy to be called your High Priest. Otherwise I would not be able to fully understand you, empathize with you, and know the same feelings that you experi­ence. There were no shortcuts for Me.

8. On the eve of launching out into the great­est part of My earthly ministry‚ I had to pass a big test in the wilderness. I had to defeat the Devil, who severely tempted Me with his “kingdoms of this world” scheme, the temptation of earthly riches and fleeting human power. He tempted Me with pride, with doubt, with hunger. Though I had a fierce time of it during those days and nights, with the help of My ­Father and His ministering angels, I pulled through. Those were special days there in the wilderness, for it was at that time that I committed Myself to stick to My calling.

9. You could say those days for Me were similar to your S2K period and your Feast 2000. For Me it was much the same as your time of decision and renewing your commitment to carry on in the calling I have chosen for you. It was out there in the wilderness that I, in effect, signed My “contract” to continue. That was when I renewed My oath of allegiance and subsequently received fresh vision, and that was when I received My new anointing for the public ministry I was about to begin. That was My time of renewal and of declaration when I reaffirmed to Heaven, and to the Devil as well, that I was going forward with the challenge to die for the sins of man.

10. Those days of testing were vicious, but I was soon to learn that those fierce battles during My time in the wilderness were not isolated, but they were the beginning tests to prepare Me for more tests of faith and the greater vic­tories that would follow.

11. I know the thought of doing the imposs­ible seems awesome through human eyes. I too was tempted when I faced impossible situations. As I progressed in My public ministry, when I began to fully realize all that would be expected of Me, there were times I felt like running away. In My carnal mind and way of thinking, I couldn’t see how it would be possible to do some of the things that were expected of Me—to call on the power of Heaven while encased in human flesh, to perform miracles on Earth, to work impossibilities in the sight of man. On the other hand, I knew there was nowhere to run, and I prayed to My Father to help Me hold on.

12. It was not long after My public ministry began that another big test came. You know how it is when you think you have an idea of what something is going to be like. You’re about to experience something new; you might have heard about it or read about it, so you enter some new phase of your life thinking you’re well aware of what to expect. Take having a baby, for example, or falling in love. You might have read up on it; maybe scores of others have told you about it and shared their own experiences with you, to where you think you have a pretty good handle on what it will be like when you experience the same. But then you find yourself in the middle of that experience and you discover it’s much different than what you had expected. Well, that’s what it was like for Me as I ventured out in My public ministry. In My carnal mind I thought I knew what to expect regarding My earthly life and ministry, but I soon found out that doing and experiencing were different than merely observing from afar.

13. As I stepped out into My new anointing, I found Myself surrounded with daunting tasks. The confines of the flesh, carnal thinking, and human emotions were a constant battle for Me‚ and I had to learn to cope and overcome. I was put to the test and found it necessary to demonstrate My faith often‚ to prove to the people that all things are possible with God. I came up against all sorts of surprises every day. Each experience was new and fresh, and each one taught Me a great deal—both about the physical world, as well as about the spiritual realities as seen through human eyes.

14. As I went about My business in those beginning days, I didn’t expect the crowds to be so demanding right off. It wasn’t until I was right in the middle of things that it dawned on Me that My ministry was going to snowball like it did. In just three short years, news of Me spread abroad. Little did I know from the day I performed that first miracle that things were going to develop so quickly.

15. I’ll never forget that day when I turned the water into wine. I had no idea My mother was going to call on Me like she did at that wedding in Cana. When she came and asked Me to do something about the wine‚ I felt put on the spot. I didn’t “feel” prepared to perform a miracle, as is so often the case with human flesh. This was evident in My reply to My dear mother when I told her it wasn’t My time. I as much as told her‚ “I’m not ready, Mom. What are you putting Me on the spot for, anyhow?” Bless her heart‚ even though I was lacking in confidence at that moment, she didn’t lose faith in Me. She had complete trust that I was going to pull through. Her faith was so strong that she told the servants to get ready, to be prepared to do whatever I asked them to do.

16. As many of you have experienced by now, whenever a miracle is needed‚ most often you’re on the spot! You find yourself in a tight corner, in the middle of an impossible situation or predicament. You don’t know what on earth to do‚ so you’re driven to seek My assistance—and boom—a miracle is born!

17. That’s pretty much how it unfolded with Me right then. I was on the spot, I had to stretch My faith, and a miracle took place that day. The Spirit of My Father moved in Me, convicting My heart, and I’m thankful I didn’t brush it aside. The need was there, and it was, in fact, My time.

18. From then on, as My Father began to work more miracles through Me, I was driven to greater desperation. After that first visible miracle in Cana, I could see the handwriting on the wall; I caught a glimpse of what My public ministry would entail. I knew that the press and the demands of the people would only continue to grow. I knew the need, and I felt incapable of meeting that need in My flesh. I knew I had been called to put My faith into action, but I didn’t “feel” capable of dealing with it in My flesh.

19. My Father had given Me a new anointing when I stood the tests of faith in the wilderness. I knew He wouldn’t fail Me. But as all this was unfolding before Me‚ I knew I needed to get down to business and get some answers and direction, as well as something to hold on to for My Own peace of mind and spirit. I knew I had to sort things out in My mind and heart. It was not that I expected to understand everything with My carnal mind at the time, but I knew I needed some word from My Father, something to spark My faith, something to hold on to.

20. You could say I was passing through My Own crisis of faith at the time. My faith was being sorely tested. I needed help. So I desperately called out to My Father, and when I did, He called Me aside. He told Me to come up into the mountain by Myself. At that time, I had one of the most serious of all conversations (in My human life) with My Father, and it was there He presented Me with one of the most prized of all possessions. What My Father gave Me at that point in My ministry, I am about to give to you now; but before I do so, listen carefully.

A Boost from the Father

To Fulfill My Destiny!

21. Up until this time I had passed the needed tests and made decisions and choices that brought Me to the point I was at. I chose to fulfill My calling, yet in order to continue in My calling, My Father found it necessary to make some changes and give Me some special gifts in order to facilitate My mission. He had already given Me a fresh new anointing for the job at hand. He had enhanced the gift of faith in My human heart, just as I have increased the same in your heart now. But it was My responsibility to do something with that increase of faith I had been given. I had to believe it. I had to access it. I had to act on it. I chose to do so. I made the right choices, and even though there were times I felt like giving up, I didn’t; I held on to My faith.

22. Some of you might picture this “holding on to faith” in different ways, but when I say I held on tightly to My faith, I didn’t just sit there “holding on” for dear life waiting for something to happen. Hold on to it I did, but I did it as I was on the go, putting that faith into action. I held it tight‚ all right, but I held tight as I was on the run doing the things that natural man said could not be done. I wasn’t only holding on to My faith, I was proving My faith, putting it to good use, exercising it, stretching it‚ acting on it at every opportunity that presented itself. I always had to do My part.

23. What My Father presented Me with at that time helped Me to put My faith into action. What He was about to put in My hands gave Me courage to trust and obey where He was leading. What He was entrusting Me with was the means to get the job done, and this boosted My faith into action.

24. In that moment He gave Me the keys to both Heaven and Hell—the keys to unleash the power of Heaven and to leash any power of Hell. He gave Me full access to every power source of Heaven, the code to unlock every solution‚ the means to bypass all impossibilities. He didn’t just give Me keys to designated sectors or portions, but He gave Me full and unlimited access—all the keys to Heavenly resources.

25. Now My Father was giving Me full possession. I held at My fingertips the ability to unlock everything, to have understanding of every situation‚ to understand when necessary every thought and intent of every heart, to release all of Heaven’s power and bind all of Satan’s power, should it be necessary.

26. My Father did this because He was going to expect more out of Me in My public ministry. Before that, I had access to Heaven‚ all right, but now I had complete access—no holds barred. This was because I had passed the tests thus far and could be trusted to continue. It was because I merited this help from Heaven‚ and My mission was crucial to the saving of mankind; thus it was necessary to equip Me with such access.

27. All power was given Me in Heaven and in Earth. I had the power within Me all along, just as you have had, for you were ordained and chosen since the beginning of time. So actually‚ in a sense, I already possessed the keys, but what happened in that moment, in terms you can understand, is that My Father enhanced My gift of faith and turned on My activation key, enabling Me to access the full power! I was equipped from the beginning, but now I would be able to access all power. All I had to do was My part—to believe and to take action. All I had to do was access the key codes, which I possessed. Much like you do today in accessing information on a computer; you punch in the right code and you’re able to access all you need to know. It was that simple.

Unlimited Access to

The Full Power of Heaven!

28. And now, dear ones, I reveal to you this truth. When I spoke to Peter and to My early disciples, saying, “I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven‚ and whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven,” who do you think I was speaking to at that time? I was speaking specifically to My early disciples at the time, and I was speaking to you, the children of David of the Endtime. It is given to you to utilize the full power of Heaven, to access the full power, to use the keys of the Kingdom I have put in your hands.

29. Christians through the ages have interpreted these words to mean that they too held these keys in their hands, and in part, some have. According to their faith and the need, I have given some access to the keys of the Kingdom, but this has only been in part—for it has been according to the faith they exercised. Up until this time, Christians have not accessed the full power, for their faith was not so exercised as yours is to be in the days to come.

30. You, the children of David, have had greater access than most through the years. I have already given you some of the keys, and I have released and/or bound many powers for you when and where necessary. You, My chosen brides, have bound in Heaven and loosed in Heaven, according to your faith.

31. Yet as you continue walking in the direction I’m leading, as you continue on in this era of action‚ right now, today, if you will reach out and receive‚ I will turn your activation key, giving you unlimited access to the full power of Heaven. I now wish to give you complete access to the keys of the Kingdom, for this is what you will need to complete the mission you have before you. Just as I needed this boost to fulfill My destiny, you now need the same. Just as I kept passing each test and making the right choices, to where My Father was able to reward Me with additional aid, I will do the same for you.

32. When I spoke to My early disciples, say­ing, “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom,” I was also speaking to you‚ My children of David in the Time of the End—for I knew you would need it and I knew your faith would warrant it. This promise has been reserved for you‚ for I could see the future. I knew that you not only would need this in order to fulfill your calling in the Last Days, but that you would be worthy of this possession‚ that you would merit it.

33. For those of you who have committed yourselves to follow onward, who have willingly chosen to continue on in the era of action, I now present you with full access to the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; according to your faith it is done. This is an amazing, awe–inspiring possession; learn to use it wisely.

34. And know this, the power of these keys I put in your hands has now been augmented since the time My early disciples used them. The key codes have been updated! Never before have My children had access to such power as I am making available to you now—not even Peter and the early disciples, or any of My faithful prophets and great men and women of faith down through the ages. It is given to you, My faithful of the Last Days, to possess new codes that were not necessary in the past because the need did not warrant them. But now it is warranted‚ for you will do greater works than I. And you will not only do greater works than I did, but you will also do greater works, much greater works, than My early disciples and all My prophets and people of faith throughout history. Now the power of Heaven is increased, so your power is increased!

35. I’m giving you access to greater power. All power is given you, and all the power of Heaven is augmented in these Last Days! The power has been there all along, within you, but now‚ today, you can access it—according to your faith it is done.

36. The evil forces are also amplified. They surround you; they are everywhere, working to keep people in bondage and darkness. But your power is amplified many times over. You have the power to release those in bondage. You have the power to overcome all evil. In your keys, you have liberty and freedom. Therefore start today and access this power I put in your hands; use it prayerfully and wisely, and walk in and claim victories. There are no obstacles to you; as long as you continue to do your part, I will never fail to do Mine.

37. This is your day! Now I give you all power in Heaven and in Earth; according to your faith be it done unto you. It is accessible to you who follow closely. Access it as often as needed, put it to use, exercise it, spread it around, use it to draw men to Me, to carry out the plan I put before you. (End of message from Jesus.)

38. (Mama:) I want you to please really think about this monumental message. It’s difficult to grasp the full meaning of this revelation without taking some time to meditate on it. When you have time, please read the entire message a number of times, if need be, until you begin to see how this applies to your life and what our Husband means by this tremendous gift that He’s giving us.

39. Here are a few points of summary for you to consider:

40.In order to accomplish what you’re called to do in the era of action, you need something. You’re lacking some key element. The Lord is going to give you what you need right now. This is in addition to your new anointing‚ your enhanced gift of faith, and the lessons you’re learning on the impossible and the art of rising above.

41.You’re supposed to do something with your enhanced gift of faith. You must act on it, exercise it, and stretch it whenever you can. This new treasure that you are now receiving will help you do just that.

42. • This is a reward that the Lord is giving to you because you have passed the tests so far and He knows that He can trust you to continue to do so.

43. • Here is how the Lord describes this magnificent gift:

  1. Complete access to all of Heaven’s power, and dominion over death and Hell.
  2. The means to get the job done.
  3. Full access to every power source of Heaven.
  4. The code to unlock every solution.
  5. The means to bypass all impossibilities.
  6. All the keys to Heavenly resources.
  7. In your keys, you have liberty and freedom.
  8. The power to release those in bond­age.
  9. The power to overcome all evil.

44.No one has ever had access to such power before. It wasn’t necessary in the past, but it is now if we are to do the greater works that Jesus spoke of.

45. • We need this boost to fulfill our destiny‚ just as Jesus did.

46. • According to your faith it will be done unto you.

47.We are the ones who will be faced with greater impossibilities, who will defy and overcome greater forces of evil, so we need greater forces of power to work on our behalf.

48. All of this is yours! Now it remains for each of us to do our part to learn to use and access this power so we can draw people to Jesus and fulfill His plan. Please don’t minimize this astounding happening in the spirit. Please don’t let the Enemy steal the reality of this away from you through disbelief. This is for you, today, and it’s real!

(Note: After reading the above portion of this GN‚ please take a break for 10 or 15 minutes so you have a chance to stretch and be refreshed.)

Feast 2001 Service

49. (Mama:) Here’s some insight regarding the next part of your meeting:

50. (Jesus speaking: ) Let everyone come together with the purpose of wooing Me and pulling down My Spirit. It is to be a time to enter into My Spirit, a time to rouse yourselves, to get in the spirit. As you do‚ then I will come and rest upon each one and activate your keys! This is the closing service I give you. It is to be as a Day of Pentecost, a time to become one. I will pour down My Spirit like a mighty waterfall, thundering from the heights of Heaven‚ flowing with magnificent power!

51. During this time of gathering, all should come before Me with great expectancy‚ joining hearts and spirits in a grand praise meeting. Woo Me and entice Me. Stir yourselves, that My Spirit may descend upon the united body. Pull down My Spirit with your praises. Unite your minds and hearts and spirits. Praise Me with song and words of love. Be roused, woo Me and receive My seeds. As you do this, My Spirit will come and rest upon each of you. I have said it will be a time of Pentecost; therefore, let it be so.

52. All should come to this gathering knowing it is a time to entice Me, to pull down My Spirit, to desire My seeds, to receive Me. Then, when My brides are roused, I will conduct a simple service. (End of message from Jesus)

53. (Mama: ) Now is the time to have an on-fire praise meeting. As you can see, the Lord wants us to sing, praise, and say words of love to Him, our amazing Giver of Life! Let the Spirit flow!

54. I know you want to enter into His Spirit and stir yourselves up to receive Him, but it’s some­times not easy to know what to do or how to be as fervent and passionate as you want to be. What you say or do just doesn’t seem to do the subject justice. When praying about it, the Lord reminded me of dear Natalia and the tremendous message of praise she gave us for last year’s Feast. We petitioned the Lord about our desire for a message of praise, and were very happy when, in answer to our plea, Natalia returned, eager to give us words of thanks and adoration to our wonderful Husband.

55. Below you will see that she leads us to repeat the praise that she gives. In order to do this, one person can read Natalia’s part and then the rest of you can read your response in ­unison.

56. Before reading this‚ please feel free to sing songs of praise together or listen to recorded songs of praise, if you wish. I personally find that listening to our spirit-filled songs of praise to our awesome Husband and singing along with them helps me to focus on Him and really gets me in the mood to love and receive Him. Enjoy!

57. (Natalia speaking:) Praise be to our great Love, our Lord and Master and King! To You, our faithful and adoring Husband, we give praise and sing Your glory!

58. Yes, dear Family, it is I, Natalia. I come once more to guide you in praise and adoration of our strong, all-powerful Husband. I come direct to you now, straight from the courts of Heaven, expressly for this special occasion, to help lead you in the praise of our faithful and loving Lord. I come to lead you in an extraordinary session, my friends. Let it be a time of abound­ing praise‚ a time to avail yourselves of the fullness of praise. You have grown and learned much about the power of praise. Yet as we join now, let this praise lift you up to even greater heights‚ and over and beyond into great­er fullness of His power.

59. Let loose‚ dear brides! Loose the gifts that stir within you! Be roused, be excited, be ignited! Prepare yourselves to receive your loving Lord in full degree.

60. Ready yourselves through this potent power of praise, dear ones. Ready yourselves, for the time has come. Join me in praise that we might woo Him, invite Him‚ entice Him. Let us bid Him come. Unite with me. Join with me now, heart to heart and spirit to spirit‚ that we might receive our passionate Love into every fiber of our beings! Indulge yourselves, dear ones! Indulge yourselves to the maximum. Don’t hold back‚ but let go! Arouse your­selves! Flow! Go the greater distance! Experience the greater climax!

61. Ignite your fires! Burn free and receive our loving Lord in full capacity! He desires you, He longs for you. Revel in His passion; don’t hold back. Defy the Tempter; don’t let him stand in the way. Shoot him down with your power of praise. Quench not the Spirit, but open yourselves and let it flow—flow, flow, flow! Let it flow freely. Embrace the Wild Wind! Let it lift you above earthly concerns. Mount up‚ dear ones, receive, and rise—rise high above! Don’t hold back. Receive, receive, receive! The King seeks to have you. He longs to possess you, therefore open yourselves wide.

62. Oh, how He loves our praises, how they bid Him come. How these praises call out to Him, how they lure Him; they pursue Him; they stir Him. Be roused, dear brides, and so will your Lover be roused. Join me in His praise. Praise Him to His heart’s delight, that He might come into us. Let us declare our praise, that we might receive to full contentment.

63. (Natalia:) Praise, praise, praise our wonder­ful Jesus for His enduring love.

64. (Family:) I praise You, wonderful Jesus, for Your enduring love.

65. (Natalia:) Praise Him with all you have in you. Look upward and sing His praise. Lift up your arms in thanksgiving and praise Him for His greatness.

200. (Family:) I praise You now, my Lover and Lord, with all my might and strength. I open myself wide to receive You. Help me to flow with You. I take You, sweet wonderful Love. I want You wholly and completely. I am Yours, heart, mind, body‚ soul and spirit. Your desire is my pleasure. Your delight is my satisfaction. I want You, I receive You, with all readiness and gladness. Possess me fully as You will. I want Your all, and thus I yield my all to You. (End of message from Natalia.)

201. (Mama:) After you have finished your time of praise and song, you may want to take a short five or ten-minute break to stretch or go to the bathroom, etc. Then one person can represent our darling Husband in reading the following message:

202. (Jesus to His brides:) Close your eyes of the flesh, My brides, and enter into My Spirit. Leave that which is carnal behind for a moment, and breathe deeply of My Own breath. Let My thoughts become your thoughts. Let our hearts beat as one. Love Me, woo Me, entice Me, feel Me, receive Me, become one with Me. Let go, My loves, let go. Move with Me, flow with Me, receive Me. Allow Me to possess you. Be completely Mine. I am yours. We are one.

203. As you take Me in, as we join spirit to spirit, I will give you these keys. I will give you access to the fullness of My awesome power. Believe and receive, for I now put the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. All power of Heaven is at your command to fully access as you will. Use it wisely, My loves. Use it in love, use it with discretion‚ use it with great honor, use it to right all wrongs‚ to expose evil‚ to set at liberty those who are bound.

204. With this all-powerful possession you must never forget the purpose of it all. Today is a great Day of Pentecost for you, yet you must always remember what this means. I don’t give you such great possession of My power for your benefit alone.

205. You know I love to commune with you. I love to feel you. I love to linger in your arms, I love to see you excited and thrilled by My Spirit. I love to be one with you. I love to possess you. Yet if it were only to fulfill My desire to possess you, I would gladly bring you Home to Heaven this very minute‚ where we would enjoy each other forever without the distractions of the flesh.

206. Therefore know, dear loves, it is not only because of My strong desire to have you that I give you these keys. No‚ I give you such great power on Earth at this time to serve a far greater end. It’s not for you to wield My power for your own enjoyment and thrills. I ask you to shun being as those in the churches‚ who discover a measure of My power, yet are as young and unwise children playing with a high-powered machine as if it were a toy. Be not as those who dabble with a measure of My power, using it to their own end, forgetting the reason for it all.

207. You must remember, My loves, the aim‚ the purpose, the goal, the final end result of why I put such power in your hands—which is to win souls to My Kingdom! This is the reason for it all. This is the reason for such great possession of My Spirit within you. This is the reason I give you full access to all of Heaven’s power.

208. Most people in the world today remember the Feast of Pentecost as a great outpouring of the Spirit. This it was; yet they forget the greater overall purpose of this time. Pentecost was to be a time of harvest, a time to reap. This is why I instructed My early disciples as I did, to meet in Jerusalem, for that is where the people were whom I wished to reach. The purpose for such a great outpouring of My Spirit upon My early disciples was not for their own fellowship alone, nor solely so that they could learn to speak in strange tongues for their own edification. It was so they could reap and gather in others to be saved. It was so they could save souls. Receiving the Spirit was important. Speaking in tongues was important; it was necessary. But all this without reaping the harvest would have been null and void.

209. The outpouring, the power, these blessings I give you, My loves, are all to this end—that you might reap the harvest that awaits you. This is where your eyes must always be focused. This is the goal. This is your purpose in the era of action. This is the reason for it all, the purpose behind everything you do, the reason I place these keys in your hands, the reason I come to you now, to possess you in such a great way. The reason for it all is to win souls, to reap the final harvest in the end of days. Time is short, dear loves, so very short, and the night is fast falling—this is why I pour out My Spirit as never before.

210. I ask you now to join arm in arm with one another. As we join as one‚ let this fire burn deep within your bosom as you receive these blessings and mighty outpouring of My Spirit. As you access these keys to the Kingdom of Heaven in the days to come, never forget the purpose of it all—to reap the final harvest, to win, to gather the lost, to get the job done.

211. I will not be totally satisfied until ­every one is Home again, and believe Me, neither will you. And when you come Home to Heaven, your satisfaction will be in knowing that you fulfilled your destiny. You didn’t quit. You didn’t give up. You did your part. You fought until the End and you brought others in. Let this passion light your fire! As you go forward into this era of action, as you access My power in fuller capacity, enabling you to perform greater miracles, as you work greater works, always remember the purpose and reason for it all.

212. Bring them in, My loves, from the fields of sin and darkness and despair! Let this be your driving force, your guiding light, your intense joy, your thriving passion, your ardent desire. Let nothing get in your way. Let nothing dissuade you or stop you. Let nothing separate us. Let nothing quench your flame.

213. And now, My loves, listen! For the time has come to reveal this divine composition for you. This is to be your national anthem. It was written in Heaven‚ composed for you since the foundation of the world, specially prepared for you, My brides of the era of action. Let this melody and these words burn in your hearts forever. This song is on continual play in the Heavenly courts, for we join you round the clock in this battle of the End. This is our anthem‚ our joint battle cry‚ our sacred song. Listen and learn. Let this anthem continually ring in your hearts. Let it rouse you, encourage you, and inspire you as you bring them in!

214. Listen now, My loves‚ then open yourselves wide, and I will come into you, for I wish to possess you fully, to rest upon you‚ to activate you, to place in your hands the keys to My full power, to speak to you personal words of comfort and confirmation that you may know that all that I have promised is yours.

215. And now, My loves‚ let the song be played‚ after which time, as My brides open wide, I will pour out My Spirit and speak through My prophets with words of encouragement and confirmation. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

Song of Victory

Swiftly falls the night, as a cloud across the nations.

Lord, we plead for Your strength, like we’ve never known before.

Take our yielded hearts and ignite in us the passion

To spread Your Words, shine Your light forth on every shore.

Awestruck by the truth of the promise You have given:

The keys of the Kingdom, You have placed within our hands!

Now is the hour, glory of Heaven!

Your mighty power is at our command

Chorus:

Come! Take the stand, hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder

March on together to our destiny!

Melted as one, weak and strong, younger and older,

We will rise above, with the Song of Victory.

Verse 2:

Yielding all to You without fear or hesitation‚

Jesus, You’ll empower us

To truly rise above,

Faithful unto death with renewed determination

To do our part

Until every human heart

Has a chance to know the wonder of Your love!

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

Standing on Your promises

There are no impossibilities

As we loose the faith within!

Yours are keys of liberty

To set the slaves of bondage free.

Over evil we will win,

By Your power!

Repeat Chorus

216. (Mama:) God bless you, dear Family! Peter and I love you so very much and pray this Family Feast celebration has been tremendous for you! We’re praying for you daily.

Much love and prayers for our great promising activated future,

Mama

Call on the Keys!

By MariaMaria #587 CM 3368 9/01

Dearest Family,

1. I love you so much, and pray for each of you as you take the time to study the abundance of New Wine the Lord has recently poured out to us. There’s so much we can hardly keep up with it all! Sometimes the great magnitude of something the Lord has said doesn’t sink in right away, until later, when we personally experience it or have a need for it. That’s often when we realize how important and useful the Lord’s counsel is. So, during this time when we’re reading the “Conviction versus Compromise” series, we wanted to pass on this practical information on how to use the keys to the Kingdom to give you the power you may need for changes in your lives.

2. The keys to the Kingdom are one of those things that we didn’t really understand very much about when He first told us about them. They sounded awesome and magnificent, and we knew that they were a priceless gift to be treasured, definitely something very special, but the practical application of how we would use them, or how they were meant to become a part of our lives, was a little vague.

3. We started asking the Lord more specific questions about how to use the keys a couple of months ago. We were asking the Lord for more information—anything that would help us learn how to use the keys better, what we need to do to activate their power and avail ourselves of this precious gift the Lord has given us.

4. Several of the folks in our Home had recently begun to claim the power of the keys in their prayers, asking for the keys to be activated and give the extra boost needed in whatever situation they were praying for. But we knew we needed more information on exactly how to harness their power or what we needed to do to activate them or benefit from them fully.

Sweetie’s Testimony

5. Around the same time as we were coming before the Lord with more questions about the keys, our Home united to pray for Sweetie, one of our dear COs who had been staying with us for about three months‚ and who was due to return to her field in a few weeks time.

6. As you all know from the prayer requests that were published for her‚ Sweetie had battled a serious health affliction for about a year and a half. The symptoms were many—dizziness‚ inability to focus her eyes, diarrhea‚ muscle spasms‚ extreme weakness and fatigue‚ headaches, fevers‚ etc. She had been to several doctors and none of them were able to diagnose what the problem was.

7. She had also had prayer many times for healing, and we had sought the Lord repeatedly about her condition and what she should do about it. It was her continuing struggles with her health that prompted us to invite her to come to our Home for a furlough, a time of rest. Even at our Home, though, with a very light workload and lots of care, she was still battling this affliction. She had good days and bad days, but overall it was continuing.

8. When she came before our Home for prayer just a few short weeks before she was scheduled to return home, it went along pretty much as usual—everyone prayed fervently for her, a couple of people received messages of encouragement from the Lord, and devotions was about to be dismissed. But the Lord laid it on the heart of one of the members of our Home who has been working with me on the GNs about the keys, that we needed to call on the power of the keys for Sweetie’s healing. So, God bless her, Misty stepped out by faith and shared what the Lord was telling her, and several people prayed‚ specifically asking for the power of the keys of the Kingdom that has been promised to us.

9. I’ll let Sweetie tell you the rest in her own words. This is from a tape that she made for Peter and me the next day.

10. (Sweetie:) I imagine you’ve already heard about what happened during yesterday morning’s devotions. To put it mildly, it was exciting and life-changing!

11. A few of us in the Home got prayer for things. I got prayer for my health and that the Lord would use the doctor I’m visit­ing to be a help, and I also asked for prayer for faith, since I need to make a decision soon about whether or not I’m going to be a chairman of one of the regional boards in our area. Then three others also shared lessons and asked for prayer for various areas of their lives. We all had prayer and the Lord gave prophecies for each of us.

12. Then, when everybody thought devotions was over, Misty spoke up and said that she was getting a strong check that we needed to call on the power of the keys of the Kingdom for my healing. She suggested that if I’m ever going to get healed, instead of just praying our regular prayers, we really need to call on the power of the keys of the Kingdom and expect the Lord to do a miracle. So that’s what we did!

13. So several people with the gift of healing laid hands on me and prayed, calling on the power of the keys, and then the Lord gave some encouragement, and Dad spoke and said that the Lord has done it, that I’m healed! It was very clear that the healing has taken place; it’s done! Thank You Jesus! I’m very happy and feel like celebrating. I imagine there may be a few tests and “lying vanities” I’ll have to fight, but I know the Lord did the miracle of healing, which is wonderful!

14. (Later:) It’s been almost a month now since I’ve had that prayer and I can testify that I’m much stronger, healthier‚ and I haven’t been sick in bed one day since then! Of course, the Enemy didn’t give up without a fight and I had an attack of “lying vanities” once, but even then the ­Enemy was defeated pretty quickly, just like the messages published in the GNs said about how the Lord’s now given us the power to “rise above!” (End of excerpt from Sweetie.)

15. (Mama: ) During the prayer for Sweetie in which we claimed the keys of the Kingdom for her healing‚ one of the folks in our Home received the following vision:

16. (Vision: ) I started getting this ­vision, which was very heavy. I was crying through it, and I couldn’t talk. It was a ­vision of a very powerful woman angel or spirit helper who was like part of the wind, kind of like a tornado or a hurricane or something‚ and part of her body was coming out of it. You couldn’t see her feet‚ but her arms and her clothing were all a very powerful wind, almost like a storm, but with a good spirit.

17. She was saying, “Call on the power of the keys. You have to say, ‘We call on the power of the keys.’ You have to say the words, ‘We call on the power of the keys for healing.'” She just kept saying that … and right then Misty said the same thing in the first line of her prayer, “We call on the power of the keys.” I don’t know what she was, but she was very significant and she was saying, “That’s what you have to do. You have to say this specifically.”

18. She was beckoning and calling—not frantic, but very impassioned, saying, “You have to just call on the power of the keys”—like if you don’t, it won’t do any good. “You have to say these words‚” and then Misty said the exact words. (End of vision.)

Ellya

19. (Mama:) We knew this was significant and so we asked the Lord, “Sweet Husband, could You please speak more about this woman? Who is she? What does she represent or stand for? What does she have to do with the keys? Does she have a message to give? Do You have anything to say about her? Could You please also tell us more about the little she said about the words to use when calling on the power of the keys? Is there more to it? Are there more words we should say to harness the power of the keys?”

20. (Jesus speaking:) The woman you saw in your vision is a spirit of great power, a spirit of the wind and the air, a spirit of the whisperings and pleadings of My Spirit. She is like unto the spirits portrayed as gods and goddesses of old in Greek and Roman mythology, but she is real and she exists today! She represents the new era of greater miracles and greater works, specifically concerning the power of the keys and what they can do for you, My children.

21. Her name is Ellya [pronounced ELL-yah]. She has been in existence from almost the beginning of time. She has stayed close to My heart and My side‚ and has always pled My cause. During the time of the great division in Heaven, when ­Lucifer chose to leave My side and the calling I had entrusted to him, Ellya pled and reasoned with her fellow angels and spirits of the heavens to remain true and faithful. During the great confusion and the evil times of Noah’s day, she also pled with the world to forsake their sins and to turn to Me. This she has done through the ages, at every turn‚ without ceasing.

22. Because of her great love and sacrifice in pleading with both men and angels countless times, I have given her great power. Her power comes from her desire to see all life, humans and spirits alike‚ follow Me and walk aright. In following and yielding one’s will to Me, there is great power. Likewise, there is even more power granted to one who not only follows Me, but seeks to persuade others to do the same. This is the deep secret of Ellya’s power.

23. Since the beginning of time, Ellya has taken on many forms. Whatever form best suited her mission, she has become. Now you see her as the woman of the wind, graceful and beautiful‚ yet powerful and awesome. She carries great strength, and her very being is absorbed by and is one with the power of the wind. The atmos­phere moves and erupts wherever she goes, yet it is a Godly power—a demonstration of My great power through one who is set to fulfill her present mission.

24. She has taken on the form of the wind in order to whisper the secrets of the keys to you, My children, everywhere. The wind and the air is always around you. Ellya is also always around you in some form, for as the woman of the wind‚ she is connected and extended throughout every current of air, every gust of wind, every storm and the surrounding calm. In essence, she can be everywhere through this vehicle, although she herself‚ her full presence and being, is not always there.

25. Her mission is to draw you, My children, toward the keys. Her mission is to plead with you, to show you‚ to teach you, to beg you to use the keys, and to use them properly. You have much to learn about the keys. Ellya is versed in all knowledge and wisdom concerning the keys. I have put My mind and heart concerning the keys within her for this very task. Her soul mirrors Mine in her deep desire to enlighten your hearts and turn them toward the keys. She will use all the power she possesses to draw your attention to the keys.

26. Ellya represents the power in the Heavenlies that you can have on the Earth, within the carnal and natural realm of man. You can receive the same power that she possesses‚ to be applied in spiritual and miraculous ways in your service for Me. Though not all the spiritual manifestations of her power are available to you, such as her ability to change form and manner, you can possess the deep power of the keys just as she does, which provide her with all the strength and command that she is known for.

27. Hear her calling to you, begging you to use the keys! She knows that you want to use the keys, that you have faith in them and long to see that faith manifested in tangible miracles and marvels. She wants to teach you how to use the keys, like an old and revered sword that has done much battle and never seen defeat, so that your skill can be sharpened, your power activated, your spiritual resources never-ending, and your own weak self turned into a champion that is undefeat­able. This is all reality, My loves.

28. She now gives you your first lesson: the proper way in which to call on the keys. I will let her speak for herself, for her pleading has reached your heart and she is impassioned and persuasive. Listen to her words well, for once you have been under her tutelage, only your lack of faith and unbelief will limit you. I have given her My permission to doubly empower those who cling to her words, who hunger and thirst after her instruction, and who do as she pleads. Ellya is part of the full activation process of the keys that are available to you. You will learn more as time goes on, as you obey the first steps that are shown to you, and look for more.

29. I am very pleased that you have found this great treasure and have inquired after it. In listening to Me and receiving the training that I have ordained Ellya to give you, your understanding of the keys will grow tremendously, and you will advance quickly. She will teach and explain to you one lesson at a time. She will not give you more than a simple instruction in one sitting, and she will wait for you to absorb and implement what she has given before she is permitted to dispense more. This is My command, because the gift of the keys is so priceless, and I will only give it to those who are respectful of My Words, and those who are willing to be taught and instructed.

30. Many will hunger and lust after the power of the keys. As My children advance in their use of the keys and learn to harness the untold power of the keys, others will seek after the keys in order to twist their use toward personal glory and fame. These will be eager to learn, to be instructed‚ to follow the steps to power. But they will find none. The keys are only activated through sincerity of heart, and without the quality of a deep love for Me‚ dedication, and yieldedness to Me‚ the keys give no power. The keys know the heart of a believer, and they will not be deceived or made a mockery of by selfish and power-hungry users.

31. There are other gifts that I have given those in the world‚ both Christians and non–Christians—gifts of special powers, healing, discernment‚ mind-reading, connection with the spirit world‚ extreme knowledge, and many others. But the gift of the keys is only for those who go further—who love Me, who live for Me, and who give their lives for Me. The gift of the keys is for My Endtime disciples.

32. So seek within your own heart for the desire to be a disciple. The power of the keys will equal your commitment to discipleship, and not only your commitment, but your day-to-day living. As you dedicate yourself, and live your dedication daily, the power will come to you in the same measure. Then you must harness it and utilize it. These are the guidelines and the conditions of the keys of the Kingdom. (End of message from Jesus.)

Call on the Power of the Keys!

33. (Ellya speaking:) Whisss‚ whisss, whisper of the wind! I call, I cry, I chant. I find your ear and a listening heart, and the power glows. I feel it deep within me, inside of my heart and innermost being. I pulse. The wind quiets. It is time to share the secrets of the keys with those for whom the power is intended.

34. This is one of the most priceless gifts ever given to man. Aside from the gift of salvation, when Jesus came to Earth to give His life for your sins, and the gift of the Holy Spirit, which God bestowed upon you when Jesus departed, the gift of the keys grants you an unparalleled wonder.

35. As My Lover and King has told you, I long to tell you how to call on the keys. First, you must understand that the keys of the Kingdom are real. They exist. They are not a mere symbol, nor some sort of ornamental representation. They are a real and living, vibrant entity. The keys are alive, and they represent our Savior’s spirit and all the power of Heaven, which can never be conquered. When you call on the keys, remember that you are calling on a living, moving, powerful, spiritual phenomenon. The keys of the Kingdom have been granted power by God, and they release power in return. When you call on the keys, they will unleash power on your behalf.

36. You must call specifically on the power of the keys, or the power of the keys of the Kingdom. The more specific you are, the better. The keys are activated in part by faith, and the more faith you demonstrate in calling on the keys by name, showing that you believe they are real and exist, the more responsive power you will receive.

37. Say these words in your prayers and times of intercession, when you are asking for great things‚ for the marvelous works promised to you in the era of action‚ the era of miracles‚ the era of greater works‚ the era of no impossibilities, the era of rising above. These are some of the words of power, and as you speak these words, your prayers will be taken straight to the keys, and will return with power and the miracles you have asked for.

• “I call on the power of the keys.”

• “We claim the power of the keys of the Kingdom.”

• “I take hold of the power of the keys.”

• “Release the power of the keys into our hands.”

• “Deliver the power of the keys unto us, for Your glory.”

• “We harness the power of the keys of the Kingdom.”

• “We reach out to the power of the keys.”

38. When you begin to pray‚ you must specify that you are calling on the power of the keys. Say those words in your first or second sentence. The power does not come on until you call for it. Avail yourself of the power of the keys from the moment you begin interceding. That is the first step. That opens the door for miracles. So call! Call on the power of the keys. Say the words. You cannot harness the power of the keys if you do not call on them by name. They beg to be used, but they must be called upon by name.

39. Until our next meeting‚ then! I will whisper and remind you to call on the keys, and when you have learned this‚ seek for the next whispering. (End of message from Ellya.)

Text box:

40. (Jesus speaking:) I know that some of you wonder about the keys of the Kingdom‚ and whether you truly need their power, for have I not said that you could even move mountains with but a mustard seed of faith? It is true that you have great power simply by knowing Me and being able to claim the promises of My Word through your obedience. But the keys grant you even greater power, and give you the ability to use it more readily and easily!

41. Think of it as if it were a major upgrade on your computer hardware or software. You may have been able to do some things on your computer before, but the upgrade gives you the ability to do much more, and to do it faster and easier. The keys of the Kingdom are an upgrade to your power in every way, and you will see this increased power manifested as you call on them, claim their power, and put them to use! (End of message from Jesus.)

End of text box.

You Need the Power Now!

42. (Mama:) There is obviously much about the keys that is still a mystery to us, that we will yet learn and discover as we go along! But one thing is very clear: We must learn to use the power, and the way to begin is to call for it, to ask for it specifically when we pray.

43. Here is another message the Lord gave when we asked Him what more we needed to know about using the keys.

44. (Jesus speaking:) I am bringing the power of the keys to your attention from many directions and avenues because I want to get your attention. I want you to be thinking about the keys, asking Me about the keys, and getting more information. This is indeed a priority. You are right in knowing that this will be a crucial part of the Family having the power they need to make the changes I am asking of them.

45. (Mama:) You’ll be happy to know that the Lord has poured out abundantly about the keys—their inner workings and more details of their power, and you’ll be receiving some of the material for this coming Feast! So there is much more yet to come. But as the Lord said, this information that He’s giving us right here is crucial, because we need it now. We have to learn to use the keys, because we need their power right now to make the changes in the Family that He’s asking of us.

46. (Jesus continues:) The Family needs to have their eyes opened to the fact that they haven’t used the keys as they should have; they’ve neglected them, thinking that they would use them later. It’s not that the Family has purposely or willfully neg­lected this precious treasure. It’s just that they need reminders; they need to be taught and lectured and trained.

47. At this time they are not calling on the power of the keys. They’re not using the keys, and consequently they’re not availing themselves of the power they need. The battles have intensified‚ and so has My power. The battles will confront and try each Family member because the ­Enemy is faithfully on the job—testing‚ delaying‚ and discouraging. I allow these attacks to strengthen My children and to defeat the Enemy‚ among many other reasons, but when My children do not come to Me for the help and power they need, then they are sometimes defeated instead. It is not a permanent defeat, for I will triumph in the end, but it is a loss, a setback.

48. If the Family neglects the intensified power that is at their disposal, they are at a great dis­advantage. They feel the heat of the battle‚ but they weaken because they are trying to do it somewhat on their own, or with limited and “outdated” weaponry. They have the power at their fingertips‚ but it’s just out of reach as they’re not thinking, remembering‚ and actively using the keys.

49. They must be alerted to this. They must see that they’ve taken this extremely important revelation for granted. Many of them have neglected to use the keys as they could have, or have regarded them as solely a spiritual matter rather than something with far-reaching practical implications, so this revelation has not brought the change I would have it bring to their everyday lives. I want their reactions, decisions, prayers, everything to work through the power of the keys.

50. The Family is in need of two things right now regarding the keys: (1) a clear reminder that they should be using the keys now, and (2) examples of how and when to use the keys. The greater understanding of the deep things of the keys will be revealed later. You don’t have to understand every single thing before you can begin to use the keys. It’s similar to prayer. You keep learning about prayer throughout your life. There’s always more to learn. It’s a fascinating and awesomely deep subject in the world of the spirit. But you don’t wait until you understand all that; you start praying right away. You don’t have to know everything to pray and for those prayers to have effect. Even babes can pray! It’s the same with the keys. You don’t have to under­stand all about them; just use them, call on them, do it. (End of message from Jesus.)

Say the Words!

51. (Mama:) The Lord then went on to give some very specific instruction as to how to use the keys in our prayers. He said:

52. (Jesus speaking:) Using the keys in your prayers is really simple. It doesn’t require eloquence or a lot of deep understanding of all the intricacies of the keys, it just requires saying the words. The power of the keys is not activated until you say the words, until you actually verbally call on the power of the keys.

53. Even if you just say that over and over, “I call on the power of the keys,” that would do the trick. That would immediately put at your disposal all the awesome power of the universe.

54. It’s easy and simple, but the catch is, you must say the words. Just like you don’t activate the power of prayer until you actually pray‚ so you don’t activate the power of the keys until you verbally and deliberately acknowledge and manifest faith in the keys by calling on that power. Then it’s there, in a flash.

55. So actually, it should be easy to learn to use the keys in your prayers. It’s not that you have to relearn to pray or do something so very different; it’s simply an addition to your prayers, that of calling on the keys, claiming the power of the keys, showing your faith in this gift by asking for it.

56. So your keys of the Kingdom prayers can be very much like what you pray now, just with this addition, this recognition and direct clear reference to the keys, an obvious acknowledgment that you want to avail yourself of this power.

57. I know My children like variety, and that’s why I want to supply many “Keys of the Kingdom Promises” so you can claim them in prayer. That will make it easier to continue to use the keys, for I know otherwise you would weary of constantly saying the same phrase. Also, knowing I gave these promises, just as I gave the promises you claim and stand on in the Bible, will increase your faith, for you will know clearly that what you’re praying for—whether it’s healing, supply, deliverance, open doors, unity, the power to forgive, whatever—has been accounted for in the power of the keys. When you see your need specifically mentioned, then you have more faith that it’s within the power and it’s My will to supply that need and to do it through the keys.

58. You know that “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” According to that spiritual principle, faith in the keys will come by hearing these promises‚ and knowing that I want you to claim them in your prayers. I want to work miracles through the keys, but you must release that power; you must claim it and demonstrate your faith in it through calling on it. Just as you claim promises in the Bible and it strengthens your faith, so you can claim these modern-day promises with as much confidence. They are My promises to you and they will not fail you.

59. Claim these promises of the power of the keys and you will see miracles, and so, through the power of the keys of the Kingdom‚ shall the ministry of miracles both great and small become a reality in each one of your lives. (End of message from Jesus.)

60. (Mama: ) That is how all these awe-inspiring things the Lord has been promising us will be fulfilled—through the power of the keys! The ministry of mir­acles, the expansion of the Family, our becoming a financial power, the witness being increased‚ even greater faith and fruitfulness and the ability to rise above—it’s all ours through the power of the keys!

Miracles Involving the Keys

61. Around the same time that the Lord was giving these messages about the keys and how to use them, there were several other outstanding instances of mir­acles in our Home involving the keys. The Lord was obviously bringing the keys to our attention in a big way. He wants us to focus on their power and learn to use it.

62. One example was when Peter and I had to give some rather strong correction to Matthew‚ one of our co-workers. He’s a precious, faithful man, and we couldn’t do without him. We love him dearly‚ and are very thankful and proud of him for the progress that he’s made over the years. But the Lord knew that more change was necessary, and gave some pretty strong mess­ages both to him and about him‚ which the Lord led Peter and I to give to him. Here is his testimony of what happened, taken from his explanation to our Home when he asked for united prayer. He said:

63. (Matthew:) I would just like to testify of a great miracle that happened to me this time in my correction. I have had over 50 years of correction in my life, and lots of it. And I have always hated and resisted it. Before the Family it was mainly because of my total resentment of any authority over me. Thankfully, being in the U.S. Army and the early years in the Family knocked some of that chip off my shoulder. But even in the Family I dreaded correction and “NWO talks”—I’m sure partly because of this resentment of authority. But I believe the main reason was because of the discouragement and despair it brought me, as I felt in my heart that I just wouldn’t be able to change. Of course, prayer works and there was some change over the years, but I would still be over­come with hopeless­ness.

64. But this time when Mama came to give me a prophecy about my problems, I imme­diately called on the power of the keys to the Kingdom to give me a desire for the correction rather than a fear of it. I prayed desperately even before reading the prophecy that I would be able to fully receive it all, without any condemnation or discouragement. And the Lord miraculously did it! I haven’t had one moment of condemnation or discouragement, thinking that I couldn’t change and get the victory over these problems and weak­nesses in my life and walk with the Lord. So I’m a huge believer in the power that the Lord has now given us through the keys of the Kingdom‚ and I’m positive that they have been activated in my life. Glory to God!

65. After I had a chance to read the prophecy—a message from Jesus to me—and pray about it, then Mama and Peter talked with me for two hours. Even during that time, I felt a total peace. Afterwards they gave me more counsel from the Lord—this time it was about me rather than to me—with more detail, again hard-hitting. I read that additional counsel from the Lord the next morning and was able to receive it without feeling at all discouraged, which was another huge miracle. (End of excerpt.)

66. (Mama:) One of our SGA women also testified of a miraculous healing which took place around the same time.

67. (SGA woman:) I recently asked for united prayer for healing from ovarian cysts. I found out that I had cysts a couple of years ago, and had asked a few of my close friends to pray for me, but hadn’t come before the body to ask for united prayer. Over the last couple of years my condition became more problematic and more painful, and I wanted to look into some sort of treatment. I went to the Lord about this recently and He challenged me to ask for united prayer and claim the power of the keys and His promises of healing. He said:

68. (Jesus speaking:) Asking for prayer for your health problem is taking the first step on the road to recovery. Full healing has been waiting for you for many months, but you have not been ready to take it by fulfilling your requirement: using the power of the keys to claim My healing.

69. It is My time to heal and to save. You think you lack full faith for this healing, because it is something that you have battled with for so long, but I will heal you. By asking for united prayer you show a measure of faith, and you allow Me to go with the faith of others who pray for you. Though you are weak in faith for your healing, the strength and power of prayer will fill in where you lack and I will work the miracle. (End of message from Jesus.)

70. I asked the women in our Home to pray for me that evening. The prayers were beautiful, as each person claimed the power of the keys for my healing, and then we had a time of hearing from the Lord.

71. The Lord gave His confirmation that the miracle was done.

72. (Jesus speaking:)

In these keys is a golden glow,

And through these keys does My power flow.

As you use these keys will the day dawn bright,

And fill your soul with My healing light.

73. I will honor your faith, My precious bride, and I will bless your humility in calling for prayer and the laying on of hands. I will especially bring forth a testimony for good because of your faith to call upon the keys of the Kingdom.

74. I know you are stepping out by faith. This is a new direction, a new stretching of your faith. This is a new demonstration of yieldedness and belief, and you will not be disappointed, for you will see signs following and you will see the miracle that you seek. I will and I have touched and healed. I have made you perfectly whole.

75. So fear not, for as the one who touched the hem of My garment received a blessing for her faith, so have I touched you. My power has entered into you through the hands of your loved ones and through the faith of their prayers and through their taking hold of the keys of the Kingdom on your behalf, and you have found the healing that you seek.

76. Fear not and be not dismayed, for know that what I have promised I am able to perform, and you will see a performance of these things that I have told you in honor and testimony and reward of your faith and your asking.

v

77. My precious love, do not fear the humbling‚ for the humbling is part of the healing, and just as important. For with the testimony that has carried on through the ages of the woman who cast herself at My feet, touching the hem of My garment—the testimony of her humility rings as loud as the testimony of her desperation and her faith.

78. Humility is a beautiful thing. It is to be worn with pride. So do not fear what I am doing in your life. Be thankful and rejoice. (End of message from Jesus)

79. (SGA woman continues: ) It shouldn’t be so surprising‚ but it’s been two weeks since that day, and by all signs I am healed. I was in pain and bleeding pretty much all the time for several months, but it ended that evening—another fulfillment of the Lord’s promises of the power of the keys. (End of testimony from SGA woman.)

80. (Mama: ) There are obviously conditions attached to using the keys. We have to be obeying the Lord and asking for something that is within His will. The Lord also said: Because the gift of the keys is so priceless, I will only give it to those who are respectful of My Words‚ and those who are willing to be taught and instructed. … The keys are only activated through sincerity of heart, and without the quality of a deep love for Me‚ dedication, and yielded­ness to Me, the keys give no power. … The gift of the keys is only for those who go further, who love Me, who live for Me, and who give their lives for Me. The gift of the keys is for My Endtime disciples.

81. “So seek within your own heart for the desire to be a disciple. The power of the keys will equal your commitment to discipleship, and not only your commitment, but your day-to-day living. As you dedicate yourself, and live your dedication daily, the power will come to you in the same measure. Then you must harness it and utilize it. These are the guidelines and the conditions of the keys of the Kingdom.”

82. Lord help us to be worthy of this im­measurable treasure He has given us!

83. Here now are the promises the Lord gave for us to claim and appropriate about the keys and the power they hold for us, and a sample prayer He gave as an example of how to claim the power of the keys and use the promises He’s given. We hope to receive more of these promises in the future, and we’ll get them to you as soon as we’re able. Accompanying this GN (or coming soon) you will receive these same promises in sheets, ready to be cut up and used as a promise box, or however you can use them best.

84. I pray that you’ll take full advantage of this wonderful gift by calling on their power at every opportunity. Whenever there’s a need, we want to do all we can, and without calling on the keys we’re not really availing ourselves of all the power that we have. If we don’t think of the keys, then we don’t use them, and if we don’t remind each other, then we don’t practice and we don’t grow, and we will miss out on the reality of this revelation, this tremendous gift‚ this awesome power the Lord has given us!

85. We need the keys in order to fulfill our destiny. It’s not possible without them. So Lord help us to do our part, to use them, to exercise our faith, and make room for the Lord to do the miracles that He has promised!

Sample Prayer for Healing

144. Wonderful Lover, we thank You for being our Great Physician. We call on the power of the keys of the Kingdom for healing. You said, “Whosoever will call upon the power of the keys will work miracles.” We call on that power now. We ask for a miracle. You said, “The power of the keys of the Kingdom will rebuke and bind ­every power of the Devil.” Through that power we rebuke this attack of the Enemy, this sickness, and we ask that You raise up our loved one to full health.

145. Darling Husband, You said, “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the ­elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up” (James 5:14,15a). We are obeying You with this united prayer, the laying on of hands, and the anointing of oil.

146. Thank You for Your promises, dear Love. Thank You for Your healing power. Thank You for the keys of the Kingdom, which You said are the most precious spiritual gift You’ve given us, next to salvation and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

147. We are forever grateful, Jesus, and we expect miracles. We humbly and with open hearts wait to see the fulfillment of Your promises—both from the Bible and the promises You’ve given us today. We have fulfilled our end of the bargain, now we ask that You do what we cannot do. Thank You and praise to You, precious Lover. We give You, our Miracle Man, all the glory.

Introduction to the Keys Promises

By Maria #627 CM/FM 3428 8/02

Dear Family,

1. Peter and I are so proud of you who have been stepping out by faith to use the keys in your prayer times, to call on the keys at every opportunity and for each need. It’s been thrilling to hear how the keys have gone to work on your behalf as you’ve claimed them, how you’ve experienced miracles and amazing answers to prayer when you’ve used this powerful spiritual weapon.

2. And now‚ because of your faith to obey and Jesus’ desire for us to grow even more in our use of the keys, He’s poured forth an abundance of new keys promises to enhance our prayer lives—a beautiful and powerful collection on a multitude of subjects and topics important to us all. I’m so happy to pass on to you this wonderful and priceless gift that our Husband has blessed us with.

3. Here is a message He gave when we were preparing these keys promises for you, which contains new instruction and insight on how we can become even more effective in wielding the keys of the Kingdom, and how to best utilize the new promises He’s given. Jesus loves us so much, and He wants to make it as easy as possible for us to use the keys of the Kingdom and avail ourselves of their full power in every aspect of our lives and service to Him.

Memorizing the Keys

4. (Jesus speaking:) I have revealed to you many deep things about the keys of the Kingdom. I have instructed you in their use. I have given you basics in the ways of how to harness their power. I have counseled you to use the keys often, to say the words, “I call on the keys.” I have promised that there will be no stopping you as you use the keys in conjunction with My will, in desperation of heart and humility of mind and spirit. I have said that the keys are activated through sincerity of heart, for it is through your deep love for Me, your dedication and yieldedness to My Spirit, that the keys are at your command.

5. I have asked you to wield the keys wisely, to handle them prayerfully. I have said that the keys will be your survival both today and in the future. I have asked that you do not shun the keys, but that you use them often, daily‚ at every opportunity. I have given you the keys of the Kingdom to accomplish My will. I have given you the keys so that the world may know that you are Mine and that we are one. I have given you the keys so that My light, force‚ and power may be clearly seen through you and so that you may glorify Me.

6. Thank you, My brides‚ for being willing to be used of Me. Thank you for being vessels of My light and power. Thank you for being willing to be keepers of the keys, for being faithful stewards of the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Because I see your willingness, because I see your yearning and desire for Me, I have given you many new keys promises to claim and to hold Me to. These are priceless possessions.

7. Now I want to give you further counsel regarding your use of the amazing and awesome keys of the Kingdom. I want to give you further instruction in the use of these keys promises.

8. If you would utilize the keys to the fullest, you must let them become a part of you. You do this by hiding the keys promises in your heart. Read them, study them, speak them to one another, meditate on them‚ and commit them to memory. Many of you have already begun taking steps in this direction. Those who have, I urge to continue on; those who have not, I encourage to begin today.

9. Let the keys be one with you and they will keep your steps. Hide them in your heart and they will broaden your understanding as they guide you through each day.

10. If you’ll make a concerted effort to commit the keys promises to memory‚ you will find that as they become more a part of you, your use of the keys will be more spontaneous. Just as I have instructed you to turn every thought into a prayer, if you will hide the keys promises in your heart, this will enable you to let every prayer you utter be empowered by the keys, and in this way you will also be utilizing your prayer power to a greater degree.

11. Each prayer you pray must now be guided by the keys, My loves, for the days require it. For you who have been given the keys of the Kingdom, prayer and the keys must go hand in hand.

12. As you let the keys promises sink deep into every part of your minds, hearts, and spirits, by meditating on them day and night, by reading them often, reviewing them, and committing them to memory—the keys will become one with you more and more, until your automatic reaction will be to call on the keys.

13. Will you make this resolution, My loves? Resolve to make a concerted effort to hide the keys promises in your heart; then call on the keys for the power to carry out your resolution. This is a vital step in letting your keys be turned to swords. You must become one with the keys!

14. Prayer is your link‚ your hotline to Me; the keys are your levers that release the power that will carry out your prayers. To use this power to the maximum degree, you must let the keys promises be one with you. Hide them in your heart so that they flow out of your mouth, so that your first reaction to each situation is to call on the keys. This is what will keep your steps from sliding, what will give you strength for the battle‚ and what will assure you the victory.

15. Thank you, My dear loves, for being willing. Thank you for being faithful keepers of the keys and the keys promises. Thank you for glorifying Me. Thank you for embracing the keys, for taking them into your bosom, for becoming one with them. The Words I speak to you are spirit and life; the keys I give you are strength, power, and victory. (End of message from Jesus.)

16. (Mama: ) As you can see from this exciting message, Jesus wants us to start committing these keys promises to memory so that we can be more effective in our prayers and use the keys more diligently. However‚ since there are literally hundreds of new keys promises, I’m concerned that some of you might get a little worried hearing this, especially those of you who find memorization difficult. If it’s any comfort to you, I sympathize and understand. I feel the same way, because I don’t have a good memory, but I know that if the Lord instructs us to do something, even if it’s contrary to our natural abilities, then He will help us.

17. I’ve begun memorizing a few of these keys promises and He’s been helping me, so I know that He will help you too. He wants to make it as easy as possible for us. His instructing us to commit the promises to memory is not an attempt to make life more difficult; to the contrary, He knows that if we memorize and use them‚ then our lives will be easier through availing ourselves of more of His power. It might be an initial investment of time in memorizing them, but the benefits will be well worth it.

18. Please don’t feel overwhelmed with the sheer number of promises‚ feeling like you have to memorize them all at once; that’s not the case. You can even start by memorizing three or four—that’s what the Lord told someone in our Home. Use those for a while, and when you get those down and are accustomed to claiming them in prayer and you feel ready to tackle more, pick another three or four to memorize. Of course, if you are able to memorize one in each section, you’ll have at least one key promise to use for almost every occasion and need, so that’s a major benefit.

19. If you have a difficult time memorizing, you can start with some of the shorter promises; that’s okay. It’s not a competition to see who can memorize the most or who can quote the longest ones. The goal is to make these powerful promises a part of your life and to start storing them in your heart today. Pick the ones that speak to you the most and memorize those first. Ask Jesus personally what is realistic for you and which ones you should start memorizing.

Tips and Pointers on Memorizing the Keys

20. I know many of you are accustomed to memorizing King James Bible verses in which you stick very strictly to the exact wording, as that makes it easier for united review, etc. For that reason, your initial reaction to memorizing these keys promises might be to do the same‚ to feel there’s not much “wiggle room” for adjustments or modifications that might make it easier. But you’ll be encouraged to hear that when I was asking the Lord for more specific counsel on memorizing these keys promises‚ He said that He wants to make it as easy as possible for us. He gave some good tips and pointers, which I want to share with you here.

21. 1) You can substitute a different synonym for a word in a key promise if you find it easier to remember or more applicable. For example, if the promise says, “No child is past being helped by My love, the keys of the Kingdom, and My living Word,” you could substitute the word “teen” for “child,” if you don’t have young children in your Home and want to adapt it when praying for your teens. Or if the key promise says, “Calling on the keys will lead you to the secret to building a loving relationship with even the most problematic personality,” you could change “relationship” to “friendship” if you feel you would use it more in your prayers that way. Then you could memorize it as‚ “Calling on the keys will lead you to the secret to building a loving friendship with even the most problematic personality.”

22. 2) You can simplify the grammar to make a promise easier to memorize (without changing the meaning). For example, if the promise says, “The power of the keys is life to those who hold them—using the keys brings health to your flesh,” you could simplify the grammar to, “The keys are life to those who hold them—the keys bring health to your flesh.”

23. 3) If there is a series of words in a promise, you can choose one of the words that is the most meaningful to you and memorize the promise with just that one word‚ especially if the three or four words contained in that series are similar in meaning. For example, if the key promise says, “Call on the power of the keys for fantastical, supernatural, out-of-this-world, incredible‚ and physically impossible miracles and healings,” you could pick just one of the words and memorize the key as, “Call on the power of the keys for out-of-this-world miracles and healings.”

24. 4) You can shorten a key promise. For example, if the promise says, “The keys are your strong defense, a constant help in every time of trouble. The keys are a strong tower. Call on their power and you will be safe from all harm or danger,” you could just memorize the second half that says‚ “The keys are a strong tower. Call on their power and you will be safe from all harm or danger.”

25. 5) The Lord uses a lot of different expressions in the keys promises, such as “call on the power of the keys,” “reach out to the keys,” “call on the keys of the Kingdom,” “focus on the keys,” etc. He does this for variety, but if you’d rather just pick your favorite expression and use that with every key promise, that’s fine too.

26. The Lord doesn’t mind if we prayerfully adapt these keys promises to make them easier for us to memorize and use. A little variation, without changing the meaning of the promise, isn’t going to make them less “real” or less powerful and effective. The main goal is to memorize the keys promises‚ and if there are ways that make it easier for us to do so, the Lord is more than happy to allow us the leeway. He doesn’t want us to feel boxed in or that we have to memorize everything word for word. The important thing is to store them in our hearts, claim them in our prayers, and make the keys more a part of our everyday lives.

When the Keys Don’t Seem to Work

27. Jesus also wants us to realize that although we now have these awesome and amazing new keys promises, it doesn’t mean that things are all of a sudden going to be perfect or that our lives will be problem-free. He will continue to allow us to experience battles, problems, sicknesses, and other difficulties in our lives to keep us close to and desperate with Him, to teach us valuable lessons, and to ensure that we are able to relate to and sympathize with others and the difficulties they face.

28. The ante is upped and the spiritual warfare is intensifying, so our all–seeing and wise Husband is giving us even more high-tech weapons for the job. With bigger battles, we need bigger and more powerful weapons to defeat the Enemy—that’s why the Lord gave us the keys and the keys promises. But even with our new “key artillery,” we’ll continue to have battles and problems, because they’re necessary and for our good. The Lord won’t spare us from everything, even if we call on the keys. Even the Lord “learned obedience by the things which He suffered” here on Earth, and we often learn many good and necessary things as well. But we can be sure that our difficulties or tests will be much easier to bear if we’re availing ourselves of the power of the keys of the Kingdom, and we can know that when the Lord has accomplished His purpose, we will come through our various battles victoriously and stronger for them.

29. The Enemy would want to discourage you and convince you that the keys don’t work‚ especially if you pray, claiming the power of the keys‚ and the Lord doesn’t seem to answer your prayer, at least not as you had hoped. It might look to you like the promise you claimed was not fulfilled. But we know from the Word that there are many reasons why He doesn’t always answer our prayers as we expect or want Him to, or possibly not as quickly as we would like. And whether we’re claiming a Bible verse or a key promise‚ the principles are the same. Our Husband knows best‚ and we should still claim the keys as He’s instructed us to and trust Him to answer our prayers in His perfect way and time. He loves us and wants to answer our prayers and do miracles! When events related to our prayer lives are a mystery to us, our reaction should be one of trust and faith‚ not discouragement and doubt.

30. If you have questions about why something didn’t work out as you had prayed, even if you claimed a very definite key promise, ask the Lord. He will explain what’s going on behind the scenes and in the spirit world. Also, study the Word on the subject. And while you’re waiting for the Lord to make things clear to you or to resolve some question you might have, please don’t stop claiming the power of the keys and holding the Lord to the keys promises. They are from Him and He wants us to use them‚ believe them, and let them work for us!

31. We have been claiming very definite and specific Bible promises for years, and even though sometimes it seemed our prayers weren’t answered, it didn’t stop us from continuing to stand on those promises. For example, we’ve probably all claimed the verse, “If ye shall ask any thing in My Name‚ I will do it” (Jn.14:14) in our prayers for years. But there have been times in each of our lives when, for one reason or another, the Lord didn’t answer our specific prayer as we thought He should or give us what we were hoping for—but that doesn’t mean we stopped claiming that verse and using it as the powerful promise it is.

32. Of course, with every promise, whether a Bible or keys promise‚ there are conditions to be met when praying. Some verses are very explicit with detailed conditions: “If ye abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (Jn.15:7). And, “Whatsoever we ask‚ we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight” (1Jn.3:22). Other verses don’t specifically spell out the conditions, but the same principles apply, principles that we have learned through our many years of studying the Word.

33. We know that God answers prayer and that we should pray without ceasing. We know that prayer changes things. We know that the Lord is more willing to give than we are to receive. But we also know that there are many factors that affect the Lord’s ability to answer prayer—people’s choices, the timing, unseen factors that are still coming into play, whether something is the Lord’s will, etc. More often than not, the Lord answers our prayers in a wonderful way, even giving us above and beyond what we’d asked for. But at times He’s limited by these various conditions‚ or by other things we’re not aware of. So if the answers to your prayers don’t come as you think they should‚ please don’t give in to doubt or resentment toward the Lord or the Word. The promises of the Lord are broad and the conditions are often unspoken, but you can grow in your understanding of those conditions through your general knowledge of the Bible and the nature of the Lord. Likewise, you can understand the conditions for using the keys as you study the Letters describing them and their use.

34. The Lord has given us an abundance of instruction in the GNs about the use of the keys. Within the full counsel from the Lord on the keys there is a fair bit of instruction about how to really make the key power work for you, how to be in a position to “command the Lord.” You need to be doing such things as faithfully drinking in His Word; being strong in faith and desperate with Him; being doers of the Word, not just hearers only; staying right with Him without having unconfessed sin in your life; living the life of a disciple, etc. Please understand that the Lord couldn’t repeat all of the various “requirements” and how-tos in every key promise, as otherwise they would be too lengthy. But regardless of whether the conditions are stated in a promise that we claim, it behooves us to do all we can to stay right with the Lord and fulfill those conditions, so we can pray in full faith, and then trust the loving care and wisdom of our dear Husband. He will answer as He knows is best.

35. It would also do us all good to reread and study the GNs on the topic of the keys of the Kingdom so that we’re very clear on our responsibilities as we claim and use these keys promises He’s given.

36. Here is some counsel about how we should react when the Lord doesn’t seem to answer our prayers, even though we claimed the power of the keys.

37. (Jesus speaking: ) When someone has a question, is hit with a doubt, or is wondering about something, the right thing to do is to go to the Word, search the scriptures, and see whether these things be so. The answer is usually right there in the Word, or if not specifically, if they are seeking with an open heart, I can speak to them directly while they are searching and strengthening their faith. I can punch through and help them apply scriptures or instruction in a new light, one that chases away the darkness and brings peace and understanding. I can speak to them and put things in perspective as they hear My voice in prophecy.

38. At the foundation of each of My children’s faith is an underlying trust in Me. I work in mysterious ways, and that is My prerogative. I know best, and sometimes My children just have to trust that, and not worry when something doesn’t turn out like they thought it would. Of course‚ when there is considerable personal loss involved, it can be more of a test of faith. But it is not possible for Me to write all the conditions in each one of these promises. That’s where the foundation of faith comes in, the knowledge of the scriptures, the daily drinking in of My Word to strengthen your faith and prepare you for the tests that inevitably come.

39. This is a principle that I wish to remind My children of: Claiming these keys promises, like all other promises, must be used in context with living the life of a disciple, daily drinking in My Word so that you are strong in faith and in tune with Me‚ and having that foundation of trust that assures you that no matter what, you firmly believe that I know best and will work that which is best for you when you are doing your part. (End of message from Jesus)

Message After an Accident

40. (Mama:) Recently two of our Home members were out in a vehicle and they had an accident. It was not our driver’s fault and our car did not suffer very much damage, especially given the fact that the other two cars involved in the accident were totaled. It was a big miracle of protection, but still, we couldn’t help but wonder why the Lord allowed the accident when our Home members had specifically prayed and claimed the power of the keys before leaving the house. I asked the Lord to speak further on this topic and He gave the following very helpful answer.

41. (Jesus speaking: ) The power of the keys is a spiritual phenomenon, a mystery, a reality. The keys are a part of Me; their power and My power are the same, just like the Word is a part of Me and prayer is a part of My Spirit. All the spiritual weapons are in some way a part of Me‚ an extension of My Spirit, something I give you to help you fight the spiritual warfare and stay connected to Me.

42. I’ve told you that every prayer is heard and answered. This is true. Even though you don’t always see the results of every answer right away, they are answered in My way and in My time. When you pray in My Name and claim My promises, you have My power at your disposal to work for you, to do miracles‚ open doors, whatever you’re praying for. Even though you might not always see the immediate fruit of claiming My Word, it stands firm and is true.

43. It’s the same when you pray in the power of the keys and claim the keys promises. They work for you in the spirit and answer your prayers. You don’t always see the physical manifestation of the power of the keys on the spot, but their power is at work just the same. Sometimes I allow “bad” things to happen in spite of the fact that you prayed and claimed My promises, or prayed in the Name of Jesus‚ or claimed the power of the keys. It might seem like prayer or the keys don’t really work and don’t make a difference, especially in cases when you pray for protection or healing or something you feel you really need, and you don’t seem to receive it.

44. The results are up to Me and My will at the time—how I know it is best to answer your prayer. Sometimes I allow negative circumstances to happen in order to accomplish My higher will. For example, I might allow you to have an accident, even though you claimed My protection and claimed the keys. That doesn’t mean that prayer and the keys don’t work; it just means I have a higher purpose for allowing those circumstances. Ask Me about it and I’ll tell you why.

45. Ask Me to explain the reasons why I allow something “bad” to happen in your life. If you pray specifically for a good night’s sleep and claim the keys—and then you don’t sleep well—that doesn’t automatically mean the keys aren’t working for you. Ask Me about it, ask Me why I allowed that situation to happen, and I’ll explain it to you. Maybe I want to speak to your heart in the quiet of the night, or guide your thoughts, or convict your heart about something. Sometimes I want you to pray about something. I’ll show you the reason for everything I allow if you ask Me.

46. I choose not to guard you from every single thing in life, because if I did, then you wouldn’t learn and grow in the spirit, and you wouldn’t learn how to fight in the spirit and use your spiritual weapons. I have to allow some “bad” things to happen so that your faith will grow and your use of your spiritual weapons will be sharpened more quickly.

47. You are surrounded by the protection of the keys when you specifically claim them to protect you, but if something happens to you anyway, it just means that it could have been much worse if you hadn’t prayed and specifically claimed the keys. Every promise of the power of the keys is fulfilled in some way when you claim them, but exactly how I choose to fulfill those promises is according to My wisdom and what I know is best at the time.

48. It might seem odd to you that I don’t choose to protect you from every possible hurt or negative experience, especially when My promises indicate that I will, but remember that it’s often the deep, dark experiences of life that teach you the most valuable lessons. If I were to protect and keep you from every negative thing, then you would be in Heaven and not on Earth.

49. The power of the keys is a spiritual weapon that I have made available to My children who live in the physical world. Without their power a lot more “bad” things would happen, but because you pray and specifically claim their power you have much greater protection and help from the spirit. When you pray, claim their full protection or their full anointing, full wisdom‚ whatever you need their help with, and then leave the final decision up to Me as to how to fulfill My promises. Don’t limit your faith and don’t belittle the power of the keys because of doubt or a lack of faith, but trust in My promises completely, even if you don’t see the answers as you’d like them. (End of message from Jesus.)

50. Thank You, our wonderful Husband, for such bountiful‚ amazing, and powerful new keys promises that we can use for Your glory and to perform Your will!

I love you! Happy memorizing!
Much love, Mama

With this GN, we’re happy to be able to send you the first batch of key promises. There will be more coming soon, Lord willing—a few hundred more!

We’re sending one set of promises to each Home. They’re printed back to back to reduce the printing cost‚ but you’re welcome to photocopy them as many times as you wish. We’re also using normal paper (again, for the sake of economy in the mail), but you can copy them on heavier paper or cardstock, making them single-sided or double-sided, according to your preference.

The key promises will also be posted on the MO site, so the files will be available for you to download if you happen to lose your master copy. You can print straight from those downloaded files.

Since there are so many key promises on a variety of topics, we’ve added the category at the top of each promise for your easy reference.

Another thing we plan to do, time and finances permitting, is to compile all of the key promises and reproduce them for you in booklet format—either GN-size or smaller. It will be handy to have all of these powerful key missives in one handy little book that you can take with you anywhere. We really want to be able to do this as soon as we’re able, so please pray with us for this.

We love you, and we pray these new key promises will be a wonderful blessing to you!

FEAST 2002

By MariaMaria #594 CM/FM 3376 10/01

Dearest Family,

1. In this message our loving Husband explains what we must do to prepare for a gift He wants to give us during these Feast days. He says that this gift is crucial to our success in what lies before us. We must have it and use it if we are to fulfill our destiny. We’ll explain more about this gift in the next Letter in this series. But in this Letter we want to explain that there are steps each of us must take in order to be able to receive it.

2. (Mama prays:) Sweet Husband, thank You for being with us during these days and making them such a special time of feeding from Your Spirit. We don’t want to miss one crumb of the Feast You’ve prepared for us. We want to take it all in, receive it, and thrill to it. We need it to strengthen us.

3. Please prepare our hearts and spirits now to receive from You fully. We call on the power of the keys to bind any distractions of the Enemy, or any of our own thoughts or pride or carnal-mindedness which would interfere with our receiving in Your Spirit all that You have to tell us.

4. Thank You for trusting us with so much. Thank You for making known so many revelations of Your Spirit! We’re not worthy of them, but we love them! We love to be Your Bride and to be taken into Your confidence, into Your secret chambers to hear these things that You haven’t told anyone else. Help us to treasure them always‚ sweet Love. We love You, and we praise and honor You.

5. (Jesus speaking:) When I put the keys to the Kingdom into your hands, My brides, I said I desired to possess you. I love to possess you! As a man loves a woman and desires to fill her with his seeds‚ so I desire to have you—fully and completely! I want you to be Mine!

6. And in those moments when I bade you, “Come, allow Me to fully possess you,” many of you opened up, you took Me in, you received My Spirit in full. Without reservation‚ many received Me fully and completely in that moment. And many of you continue to have your moments of allowing Me to possess you. You’re making progress, My loves, taking time with Me‚ coming into our intimate chambers. You open yourselves wide to receive Me, to allow Me these exhilarating moments when our spirits become one!

7. Now, I must speak to you of something more, of a greater possession, and of what this means. I want to give you another gift, and I am intro­ducing this marvelous blessing during these special days of celebration. I will activate this gift soon, but first there are important conditions that you need to understand and accept. If you are to be the miracle workers that I have spoken of, you will need this gift‚ but you must make the first move if you are to receive it. The way you do this is by allowing Me to possess you.

8. I need to take full possession of you—not in scattered moments here and there, but I want to possess you fully and completely all the time. I want and need to have full control in your lives—full possession. This is what is necessary for you to be able to open up and use the new gift I will put in your hands—you must let Me possess you. I want to give you this gift, yet for you to be able to open it and put it to use, I must possess you.

9. Let Me tell you a simple, childlike illustration to help you understand. Say you received a gift from a friend and it was a battery-operated machine, a Walkman, for example. You hold the Walkman in your hands. It’s a gift which was given to you. But you can’t use the Walkman because you’ve failed to put batteries in it. The batteries were not included; you have to supply those. It has to have the batteries in it or it won’t work—just as you must have Me in you and allow Me to possess you if you are going to use this new gift I want to give you.

10. The Walkman has to have live batteries in it all the time if you want to hear the music play. It has to be charged all the time if you want to listen to music on it. When the batteries go dead, the Walkman will no longer work. The gift I wish to put in your hands is something like this. It will be in your hands, but it’s of no use to you unless I possess you. You must have My live energy running through you all the time in full measure if you are to use this gift.

11. Allowing Me to possess you is like putting batteries in your Walkman. My Spirit must possess you fully and completely all the time, in order for you to use this new gift and benefit from it.

How to Bring About Your Destiny!

12. Consider all I have spoken to you, My loves. Do you think the feats I have said you will perform and your role as My chosen of the End are possible without giving yourselves completely to Me? If I am to live, think, and move in you at My will‚ to perform greater miracles in these Last Days‚ do you think that this is poss­ible unless I have full control? No‚ it is not. This is the crux of the matter, My loves—I must have full control, full possession.

13. I give you this list below for your prayerful consideration. These are some of the things I have promised to do through you in these Last Days, what is to be your destiny, and what you must do to bring it about:

14. • In order to fight the battles and to defy the impossibilities that you will face in the end of days, I have pointed out to you that your spiritual reflexes need to be sharp, as quick as lightning! You must be proficient and skilled to the maximum in the use of the keys to the Kingdom I have put in your hands. This great skill and the keen reflexes that will be required of you will only come by giving Me full control in every area of your lives. Your will must be My will; your thoughts must be My thoughts.

15. • It is your heritage to have the strong­est connection to the spirit world of any other humans who have ever lived. You are to shine with the most apparent anointing of My Spirit of all My prophets since the beginning of time. How will this come about? This strong connection and this visible‚ obvious anointing will be manifested in you every day through only one route—that is by allowing Me to fully possess you.

16. • You are to be the fulfillment of My new covenant of love, being one wife, married to Me and to each other, shining samples of My only Law of Love, those who will lead the way of the future, who will reign with Me, ruling the nations according to My Law. How is it possible to live My Law of Love to the full? Only through becoming one with My Spirit, through allowing My Spirit to prevail in you, to live, move, speak and think in you‚ to fully possess you.

17. • I have made plain to you, and you even now experience that in this era of action the Enemy is launching fierce attacks upon you. He will con­tinue to do so. He will attack you from new angles, and there will be new battles. He will use new tactics, things he has never tried before. How are you to fight and triumph over these battles? Your victories will come as you allow Me to do the fighting through you, as you call on the power of the keys, and as you allow Me to fully possess you.

18. • Your destiny is to be the miracle workers of the End! Those who will be strong and do exploits will have only to reach up and receive the anointing. This anointing comes in allowing Me to have full sway, full possession. You will reach up with ease and accept this anointing through allowing Me to fully possess you.

19. • You are to cultivate the power I have given you. How do you do this? Allow Me to possess you, and the power will grow, it will bloom‚ it will burst forth through your eyes, your mouth, your touch! My power in you will be known beyond all doubt, as I fully possess you.

20. • You are destined to triumph victorious over the Dragon, Satan himself, over the world and the evil therein, a feat that has been matched by no others. I remind you that this war of good and evil has been waged since Adam and Eve chose to eat of the knowledge of good and evil. You know you are not able, but I in you am. Yet to face down Satan himself, I must have full control of your heart, mind, soul, and spirit. I am talking big time, the grand finale, the final showdown. This is “it”! The way you will conquer and triumph victorious as you overcome the world is through allowing Me to possess you.

The Battlefield of the Mind!

21. My loves, it is because of your own volition that I have not yet been able to activate the gift that I put in your hands. I wish to explain this now so that you can get ready to receive. Listen carefully, and prepare to put this awesome gift to use. Prepare, and when you meet the requirements, the gift will be at your command. Let Me explain.

22. Take a moment and look at the world. The children of this generation are more often than not more yielded, more easily maneuvered, more easily directed to carry out the will of their lord than My Own are. Why? The people of this world are more fully possessed with the spirit and the doctrine of their father, the Devil. The god of this world often has tighter control over the children of the world than I have over My Own children. How does he maintain such tight control? How does he lure them into his fold in the first place, and how does he keep them there?

23. You know the answers to these questions‚ and they are many—as many as the enticements of this world. The lust of the flesh, the pride of life‚ the deceitfulness of riches, the wisdom of this world and the knowledge of man, carnal thinking—all these provide strong pulls that, except for the intervention of My Spirit and My power, are impossible to resist.

24. There is a common thread, a common denominator, a key factor as to how Satan acquires and maintains control of his own. The seat of his control is through the mind. Through the mind he gets control; through the mind he maintains control; through the mind he manipulates the masses.

25. This is why I have instructed My children down through the ages to pay close attention to the mind. For just as this is the control center that Satan uses to manipulate his own, so it is the battlefield on which he wages his ruthless attacks against you, My children.

26. The fact that Satan wages militant warfare in the minds of My Own does not come as a surprise to you. This is not news, yet there’s more to it I wish to speak to you about. This information I give you now is imperative for you to be aware of, to act upon, to make any necessary changes in your lives, if you are going to be able to use this new gift. My children‚ you must prepare.

27. It is through the mind that Satan gains entrance to recruit the lost of the world to his side; it is through the mind that he controls and manipulates his own; and it is through the mind that he wages fierce attacks on you, My children. In addition, it is through the mind that he seeks to hinder you by preventing you from allowing Me full possession in the first place by trying to share the occupancy of your thoughts.

28. The mind is the great battlefield where ruthless war is waged—the war for possession! The sins that bring you down all filter through the mind: pride, the root sin of all; jealousy; lust; selfishness; lethargy; bitterness; disunity; comparing; discontent and murmuring; negative thinking; worldliness; disobedience; doubt; putting other gods before Me; self-righteousness, etc. It all begins in the mind, takes root in the mind, and festers in the mind—all through carnal thinking, through putting on the mind of man and the mind of the world.

29. I have said many things to you regarding the mind—about your thoughts‚ about your own will‚ about the carnal mind, and about the need to put on My mind. This is because if I am to have full control of you, you must give Me your mind.

30. The port of entry to possession is through the mind, My loves. This is true for both Me and for the Enemy. Satan controls his own through the mind, and so do I. This is why the Apostle said, “Put on the mind of Christ.” This is why you are instructed to think good thoughts, to be transformed by the renewing of your mind‚ to keep your mind stayed on Me, for therein lies perfect peace.

31. Yes, I do control you through My Spirit, and when our spirits meet, when you take Me in and allow Me to possess you, anything is poss­ible. And this is yet a great mystery to you—the relation between heart, mind, spirit and soul. It isn’t necessary to ponder deeply on how these integrate and intertwine at this moment‚ but only know that they do, and that it is through the spirit of your mind that you open the door for Me to possess you, for therein do you choose, willingly and of your own volition, to accept Me, to call My Spirit to come possess you.

32. The outcome of all battles is determined first in your mind, for this is where your will is set. This is where you choose Me and My ways, where you choose to accept My Words and put on My mind. I have said that he that believes on Me will have eternal life. Belief, faith, trust, confidence, and acceptance all begin in the mind. If you are of a ready and willing mind, all that I have is yours for the asking.

Put off the Mind of Man and

Put on the Mind of God!

33. Why do I speak to you of this now? Because, My loves‚ in order to use the new gift I will put in your hands, you must give Me your mind—fully, completely, without reservation. You must allow Me full possession, that I might live, work, think, and act through you fully, as I desire.

34. Many of you have sought to do this, and I do work through you to varying degrees. You pray and ask Me to cleanse your mind, to clear your mind, to ease your mind, to direct your thoughts, and I do. Yet you must give Me more. You must give Me all.

35. If you are going to use the full power I have given you‚ I cannot share your thoughts with the carnal mind. I cannot perform mighty works through you in coexistence with the mind of man—for this hinders, it sets back, it stifles My Spirit from fully and completely performing great feats through you. It prevents you from activating the full capacity of spiritual powers that are at your disposal.

36. If you are going to work greater mir­acles‚ if you are going to fulfill your destiny, you must be Mine. You must be wholly, totally, completely possessed by Me, and in order to do this, you must put on My mind. You must more fully think My thoughts. You must allow the spirit of My mind to become one with the spirit of your mind. Your brain must be My brain. You must put on the totality of the mind of God.

37. How do you do this, you ask? To put on My mind, you must put off the mind of man, the mind of the world, the thoughts of Satan, the propaganda of Satan, the knowledge of the world, the wisdom of the world, the mind of vanity, the mind of flesh. You must put off a reprobate mind, a doubtful mind. Put off the carnal.

38. The carnal mind is enmity against Me—this is the crux of the matter. The carnal mind is the opponent of My Spirit, for it is not subject to My Law of Love, nor is it subject to the miracle-working power of My Spirit. Therefore, if you are going to be miracle workers, if you are going to call on the power of the keys and access them to the full‚ you must put off the carnal mind.

39. Throughout My Word I have chided My children to put on the mind of God, to be renewed in your mind, to mind not the things of the Earth, to set your minds on Heaven, to gird up the loins of your mind. That means putting up barricades to shield yourselves from the carnal. It means rejecting the wisdom of the world and not allowing this wisdom to enter and take root. It’s rejecting worldly knowledge and ways, rejecting the enticements of that which is carnal. To gird up the loins of your minds means to prepare, My children. In this case, prepare your minds for action! Prepare to let My mind move freely in you. Prepare to be My miracle workers of the End. Prepare to do exploits‚ to do greater things than all the prophets or I did while on Earth. Prepare by putting on the mind of Christ, by allowing Me to fully possess you.

In the World but not of the World

40. So deep is this subject, and I see you ponder: “This sounds nice in theory, but how do I put this into practice when I, being in the world, am surrounded by the things of the world?”

41. You do this by first calling on the power of the keys‚ and through the power of the keys, being doers of My Word—rejecting that which is carnal. The keys rule! My power rules! I am able to help you reject the carnal-mindedness of man and to put on My mind, but you must do your part. You must take action to clear your mind of all that is not of Me, of that which is carnal, that which is earthly.

42. If each of you will stop right now and carefully review what you spend your time doing, I will show you the areas where you need to improve. I will show you the areas in your life that need adjusting if you are going to fully put on My mind.

43. I want to fully possess you—but you must be of a ready mind, a willing mind. This is the step you must take if you are to use this new gift I place in your hands. You must desire the things of the spirit over the things of the flesh. You must put off the mind of man and put on the mind of God.

44. Many of you hold on to carnal-minded­ness in some areas of your lives. These are hindrances that prevent Me from possessing you as I need to if you are going to hone the gift I wish to give you.

45. What you spend your time doing tells the tale. How much do you delve into the knowledge of the world over the knowledge of God—through movies‚ books, magazines, music, the Internet, the news media, through study of worldly knowledge and man’s wisdom, through listening to the philosophies of men of the world that are not in accordance with My Word?

46. I am not asking you to put away all forms of recreation that involve the world, or always forgo or shun movies, books‚ magazines, the Internet, etc. But what you need to ask yourself, and ask Me above all, is how much these things influence your thoughts. How much time do you spend relaxing with those things, and how much time do you spend relaxing with Me? Do you take time in My Word to cleanse yourself after partaking of the things of the world, even when it’s for simple relaxation? There probably is no more important time to seek to be cleansed than after delving into the world for relaxation and entertainment‚ because if you’re on the job and doing research, you’re more likely to be on guard and prayerful‚ and thus the Enemy cannot come in as much. But when you’re relaxing, this is a time when the Enemy can often get in wholesale with his ideas and thought patterns and mind­sets, because you’re “just relaxing,” so you take it all in without filtering it or measuring it against the yardstick of My Word‚ and without taking time to be cleansed afterwards through prayer, communion with Me, and even seeking Me about specifics that stick in your mind from those things.

47. There are also times when it’s necess­ary for the sake of the work, and I give you the go-ahead to immerse yourselves in some of these things, when it’s necessary to pass through the waters of worldly wisdom and knowledge. But I want you to ask yourselves, what care do you take to filter this input through the sieve of My Words during those times‚ both written and My Word in prophecy for you personally? Do you delve into the knowledge of the world and the ways of the world without following through with the cleansing process of My Spirit afterwards? Do you delve into worldly wisdom without proper inoculation and detoxification? Do you delve into worldly knowledge and let it linger? Or do you shun that which is carnal and put on My mind? Do you ask Me what I think about the conclusions you come to after talking with people of the world or reading their material? When you look something up on the Inter­net‚ do you stop to ask Me what I think of it‚ or if I agree with their conclusions, or if their information is even accurate by My standards and the way I know things to truly be? These are habits you must build if you are to be able to receive this gift I want to give you.

48. Or is your reaction when you read a GN or message from Me to weigh it against other so-called “facts” that you’ve learned from worldly sources, to see if My Words really “hold water” or are accurate? Do you judge the worldly knowledge or information or thoughts that you take in against My Words, or do you judge My Words against your own thoughts and other sources of information? If other sources of information are your yardstick, you need some serious adjustment in your mindset if you are to take on My mind and be ready to receive this gift I am waiting to give you.

49. What care do you take to filter carnal thoughts and wisdom through My Spirit, without fail? You must filter what contact you have with the world through Me, without fail, if you are to stay pure and undefiled, ready and able to be conductors of My full power. I have spoken to you of this need to filter all things through My Words and Spirit; now it must be put into continual practice.

50. In order for Me to have full possession, you must not only give Me your mind‚ but you must clear your mind and thoughts of all that is not of Me, of all that is worldly or carnal. You must be willing to relinquish those ideologies you hold so dear if they don’t match up with what My Word says. You must be willing to believe Me above all, even when all your research and everything the world says seems to contradict it. These are sacrifices you must be willing to make if you are to truly put on My mind. When I gave you the greatest commandment, I said you are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This means you are to give all your mind to Me. Giving Me all your mind means you are not to give place to carnal-mindedness through retaining worldly wisdom and letting it become part of you.

51. The natural mind of man does not receive the things of My Spirit. Those who would be vessels of My great and awesome miracle-working power must retain My knowledge in all their thoughts. Worldly knowledge and carnal-mindedness surround you‚ it is true; you cannot escape being aware of it. However, there is a definite difference between awareness and allowing it to become part of you.

52. I have put you in the world, My loves, yet you are not to be of the world. To activate the new gift I will give you, you must come out of the world‚ be separate in all your ways, and touch not the unclean thing—that is, in your mind, in your thoughts, in your spirit. You can be in the world‚ but not of the world, only by putting on My mind. You may need to be aware of the worldly wisdom‚ yet you are not to let it become part of you, nor let it use you and guide you.

Unprecedented Rewards

Await You!

53. Reflect on these words I tell you here. Come to Me, each one of you, and let Me speak further to you personally on this subject. It is sobering‚ yes, and you will see that what I tell you here will require a forsaking in each of your lives. It will require a greater forsaking of worldly ways, worldly wisdom‚ and worldly knowledge—a forsaking of carnal-mindedness. It will require a genuine desire for the things of the spirit rather than the things of the world, and asking Me to change any appetites for the worldly to a greater desire for the Heavenly. It will require being a doer of the Words I give you. It will re­quire putting on My mind, allowing Me to possess you fully.

54. Yet it will also bring you the greatest joy you’ve ever known‚ the greatest fulfillment, for it will bring eternal satisfaction and boundless contentment—that which has not been known to any man until this time! Its recompense will be limitless, your rewards unprecedented!

55. There are no earthly words to adequately describe what I prepare for you who, yielding your all to Me‚ allow Me to fully possess you. To you is exceeding great and awesome eternal glory! For you I prepare My greatest and rarest rewards and gifts! So stunning are these rewards that I can only give them to those who pass the greatest tests, who give Me their all without reservation, without hesitation.

Text box:

56. Q: Does this mean that if you hesitate, you lose out on the rewards forever?

57. (Jesus speaking:) It is a principle of My Spirit that those who obey instantly receive the greater blessing. And so it is with this. Those who obey later will receive a measure of this gift, this reward, but the greatest rewards, the greatest measure, will go to those who follow Me without hesitation. It’s not that those who obey later lose everything, but they lose out on what I wanted to give them right then. It’s a principle of My Spirit. I bless and reward instant obedience, and you never know what you could be missing when you don’t obey when I call the first time. (End of message from Jesus.)

58. So outstanding and rare will be your rewards that I must disguise the glory of what’s in store for you at this time, for your eyes are not yet able to behold the grandeur of it! And this I do, My loves, that you may walk by faith‚ and thus receive faith’s reward—that which surpasses all others. Trust and believe and put on My mind, for I promise you that there will not be one thing required of you that I will not give you sufficient grace to bear, for My strength will be perfected in you as you yield your all to Me. My strength in you will make your faces to shine with the glory of Heaven in these Last Days.

59. And know that to be fully possessed by Me, to be conductors of My sovereign power, is all in all! When you open this gift that I will place in your hands and behold what you stand to gain, you will see it is worth it all. When you understand the awesome­ness of it, you will see it is worth rising above the flesh to live in the spirit. They that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they who go after the things of the spirit will be unbeatable—the miracle workers of the Last Days!

60. You’ll never be sorry you said yes to Me. When you see what you stand to gain, and when you partake of this gift, you will have no regrets that you put off that which is carnal to walk with Me in the world of the spirit.

61. Who can know the full mind of God? It is given to the children of David to know. There are few in the world today who are worthy—but you who receive Me fully‚ who allow Me to possess you, are worthy. This is the heritage of the children of David—those who desire to please Me, who desire to have Me, who seek to put on My mind, who seek after My Words above all‚ who long to know My thoughts above all, who mind not the things of the world and the status quo, but who desire only to hear My voice, who follow My leading at all costs, who yearn for My Spirit and call out to Me‚ “Come, possess me fully! Come, let us have a mind-meld! Come, let Your mind become my mind,” those who seek to know the totality of the mind of God.

62. These I will lift to supreme heights in these Last Days. You will rise above all obstacles to live in the miracle world, to transcend the earthbound and glory in the supernatural. To you, there will be no problems, no obstacles you encounter that can stop you—for anything that stands in your way will vanish before your eyes at the touch of your faith!

63. There will be no mountains to you‚ for I will fully possess you and the awesome power of My energy will flow freely through you—energy and power that know no stopping place, that never run out‚ that know no defeat—alive‚ active energy that will propel you, activate you, and energize you to fulfill the commission for which you were created.

64. All power is given to those who are not yoked to the knowledge and wisdom of man, to carnal-mindedness, but who put on My mind, who take Me in and allow Me full possession. And when I possess you, you will not be shaken in mind nor troubled in spirit‚ for I will live fully in you. No fear will touch you, for you will exude My power, My love, My sound mind. (End of message from Jesus.)

65. (Mama:) I know this is a lot to grasp‚ and it might seem unrealistic or out of reach for you. But remember, there are no imposs­ibilities to us! The Lord has given us the gift of enhanced faith and the keys of the Kingdom, so please let those work for you to open your eyes to how this concept of putting on the mind of Christ can work for you. Even if it seems difficult or if you feel you’re too weak or have too many bad habits, don’t despair and give up. Get desperate, seek the Lord, study this mess­age, and call out to Jesus with the power of the keys!

66. You can learn to give yourself wholly to the Lord, and He will honor each step you make in that direction. Start today, and you’ll make progress and be rewarded as you go! Don’t let the Enemy steal away the marvelous, awesome gift the Lord wants to give you. Don’t give place to his doubts or lies that you can’t do this. You can! The Lord will help you as you cry out to Him, “Lord, I believe; help Thou my unbelief.”

67. Do something immediately to show your obedient spirit and your desire to do what the Lord asks of you. Take the time to receive personal counsel in answer to the P&P (prayer and prophecy) questions below, and then begin immediately to obey! As you take the first steps, the Lord will meet you and carry you, if need be, to victory!

Full of hope through the power of the keys,

Mama

Questions to ask the Lord:

1.What worldly mindsets or attitudes do I have that need to change before I can receive this gift and the full empowerment of putting on Your mind?

2.How much do the forms of worldly enter­tain­ment and knowledge—movies, books, System music, the Internet, etc.—influence my thoughts? In what ways are my thoughts and attitudes influenced and swayed by the carnal reasoning and in­put of the world? Through what avenues do I receive this input? How can I minimize or eliminate it, or manage it better through more cleansing of the Word and my time with You? What safeguards do I need along these lines?

3.What do I need to forsake in my life in order to put on Your mind more fully, put aside the ways of the world, and be able to use the gift that You want to give me?

4.How can I learn to filter my thoughts more through Your Word? How can I better put on Your mind and receive Your thoughts throughout the day, letting them guide my decisions? What do I need to do to allow You full possession of my mind?

(End of file.)

Focus on the Power!

FEAST 2002

By MariaMaria #592 CM/FM 3374 10/01

Dearest Family,

1. Our wonderful Husband has again “opened unto us His good treasure” (Deut.28:12) and laid before us a feast! As you’ll see as He unfolds these revelations and visions of the spirit, the dynamics of the spirit are changing, and He has said we’re going to start feeling the effects immediately.

2. Of course, each one of these messages that the Lord has given for this Feast time is only the beginning—they leave much for us to learn and discover and uncover as we put them into action and begin to apply them to our lives. Just as we received the keys at last year’s Feast and we’re still uncovering their mysteries and learning to use them, so it will likely be the same with many of the things the Lord says here—we won’t comprehend their full meaning right away, but as time passes and we ask Him more about it and apply His counsel step by step, we’ll learn and understand more, and realize more and more how deep and amazing these truths are that He places in our hands.

3. I urge you to ask the Lord to open your spiritual eyes and ears and help you grasp these messages in the spirit as much as poss­ible. Before you even start reading, ask Him to give you the faith to receive the things He’s saying without hesitation. They’re very deep, and they’re destined to affect our lives and future in a very big way! The Lord is picking up the pace, and things will never be the same again! Things will not just continue as they were, as He explains in this first message.

4. (Jesus speaking: ) The messages for the Family Feast 2002 are opening a door to a whole new realm in the spirit‚ and it will take a while for you to grasp their full meaning and come to know their depth. As you go along‚ I will build on these messages and will continue to show you more and more truth and more application of them.

5. I have purged the Family through the “Convic­tion vs. Compromise” series. You have entered a new era, an era where I expect more‚ and in return am giving you more. It is an era of miracles and wondrous rewards for those who are obeying and following Me completely. The messages I will give you now are offering more of those rewards and blessings. They’re offering new blueprints for effectiveness and fruitful­­ness, and with those offers comes the requirement that you make certain sacrifices. I put this offer before the Family, and each of you must decide what you’re going to do with it. In a way‚ that’s always what I do with My Words—I give them, but it’s up to each of you how much you believe, obey, and strive to make that Word part of your life. It’s the same with these messages‚ but the stakes are much higher.

6. I am no longer calling repeatedly. You have had your times of training in obedience and following Me, and these are no longer mere tests; they are the real thing. You have gone from the practice range to competition, from ­basic training to spiritual combat. Rewards are given instantly to those who obey instantly. And by the same token, the loss will be felt instantly by those who hesitate. In the spirit world, things are moving faster. You have less time. The time for great and obvious demonstrations of My Spirit is right around the corner. In order for each person to be ready for those days, I’m stepping up the pace, and I don’t have time to wait around for those who are hesitant or unsure.

7. Yet this is My mercy. If I did not pick up the pace‚ no one would be ready for the more difficult, intense, fast-paced days of action you will face in the future. I have patiently trained and instructed. I have pulled the Family along as fast as they would let Me. I have nudged and pleaded and given second chances. All of that has been part of your training and of teaching you to obey. I have let you feel the results of your actions. Now the results will come much more quickly—instantly, in some cases.

8. And so it is with these Feast messages. They are inspiring, thrilling; they rejoice your heart. But they are also much more than that. They are again a call to My children to leave the things of the world, to grant Me full possession, to again draw closer to Me and to receive what I have to give you. And I will not plead or cajole. I will simply put forth the truth, and you who follow will be blessed more than you ever thought possible. My Words will remain there for those who hesitated, and in time, if they choose to follow‚ they will also be empowered and blessed. But it will never be as great or overwhelming as if they had chosen right then, at that moment, to come, drop everything, and follow Me in spirit.

9. Read these messages carefully‚ My loves, and I will give you questions that you can ask Me at the end of each message—questions for pondering and reflection, and a further opportunity for you to grasp what this means for you personally. Each of you will need to make the effort in the spirit to receive what this means for you, and then to obey it. That is a choice only you can make. You have been taught and instructed, and now is the time for you who will to put it into action. (End of message from Jesus)

10. (Mama prays:) Sweet Husband, thank You for that challenge. It sobers us to see how much more You’re expecting of us. Please help us not to let You down or disappoint You. Help us to apply ourselves, to do everything in our power to absorb what You’re saying‚ and to take each word to heart.

11. Thank You, dear Lord, for the wonderful, terrific, thrilling things You’re giving us! You never cease to amaze us! Just when we think You’ve given us everything‚ You bless us with something more. You’re so good to us, precious Love. We don’t deserve all these wonderful gifts, but we’re so thankful for them. We praise You and glorify You!

12. We call on the power of the keys right now, all together as Your Bride. We ask You to loose their power on our behalf, to open our eyes and ears of the spirit and to help us grasp these words that You are about to give us. We stand unitedly with You, our Husband and Deliverer‚ and in Your Name and in the power of the keys we rebuke the Evil One from hindering this important time we have to spend with You. We rebuke and bind Pan and Oplexicon and all the others who fight against the truth of Your Words. Free us in the spirit from our pride and carnal thinking or anything else that would hinder our receptivity. Give us faith to follow You wherever You are leading us. Give us unhesi­tating conviction to obey You, no matter what.

13. We are Your Bride, sweet Love, and we are here for You. We put aside all else and dedicate this time to You. Please pour down Your liberating, exhilarating spirit upon us now, and enrapture us with Your Words. Help us to grasp these spiritual truths and principles and to apply them to our lives today. We want to change and keep in step with You. We love You, our miracle-working Husband.

Note: When the Lord uses the terms “carnal mind,” “carnal-mindedness,” “carnal thinking” or “carnal reasoning” in the mess­ages which follow in these Letters, He’s not using carnal in the more familiar modern way as meaning “sensual or sexual,” but in the original way as meaning “of the flesh” instead of being “of the spirit.”

In Romans 8:7 it’s used in this way. Paul says, “The carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” Strong’s Concord­ance translates the Greek word for carnal here as “flesh; i.e.‚ the body (as opposed to the soul [or spirit]), or (by implication) human nature (with its frailties and passions).”

The New Testament also uses carnal in another context—to mean worldly as op­posed to spiritual. Nelson’s Bible ­Diction­ary defines carnal as “worldly, non-spiritual; relating to or given to the crude desires and appetites of the flesh or body.” It goes on to explain: “The apostle Paul contrasts ‘spiritual people’—that is‚ those who are under the control of the Holy Spirit—with those who are ‘carnal’—those under the control of the flesh (1Corinthians 3:1-4; Romans 8:5-7). The word carnal is usually reserved in the New Testament to describe worldly Christians.”

Thus‚ when the Lord uses a term such as “carnal mind,” He’s speaking of the mind of the flesh or of human nature as opposed to the mind of the spirit and Heavenly nature; a worldly or non-spiritual mind as opposed to one under the control of His Spirit.

14. (Jesus speaking: ) When My Father presented Me with the keys to the Kingdom‚ this was the turning point in My earthly life that catapulted Me forward in My era of greater miracles. As I have shared with you, in a sense I always had the power of the keys in My hands, for it was given Me from the beginning, just as you have always had the power in part. But it was when My Father activated the full power of the keys He’d put in My hands that it was necessary for Me to learn further lessons about how to use the keys to the Kingdom I held. Faced with a daunting need, with the oppression and evil in the world around Me‚ needless to say, I wanted to do all I could to learn to use the full power of the keys. With the mission to overcome death and free mankind, I knew I had to use the keys wisely and I had to wield their power accurately if I was to fulfill My destiny.

15. All power in Heaven and in Earth, all the power of the universe, is an awesome thing! There are no human words to describe the full extent of the matter. Yet you, My intimate brides, are destined to see and feel and experience wielding this awesome power firsthand. You know this; however, what I want to tell you about now is a vital element that you must be aware of in order to reach this point—the point where you can fully benefit from the power of the keys.

16. I have instructed you to call on the power of the keys—to use them, to say the words, to just do it by faith. Just as you call on Me in prayer‚ so you call on the power of the keys. Those who are doing this are finding that the keys do work. Yet you know they can do more, and you sense that there must be something further you can do to be able to use the keys as you need to. If you are going to use the keys in the ways I have promised, you must cultivate this habit and put into practice what I am about to tell you.

What Is Lacking in Mastering

The Full Power of the Keys?

17. You in the Family have already experienced miracles during your lifetime serving Me. If you’ll carefully review your lives and all the years you’ve served Me, living by faith, you will see I have already helped you to hurdle many impossibilities. You’ve experienced My miracle-working power both in your lives and the lives of others for whom you pray. You’ve experienced My supply and healing touch. You’ve seen My power work to change hearts, minds and spirits, to change habits, to help you gain victories over deep-rooted spiritual problems. To varying degrees, the power I have given you has even helped to change your own human nature. And now‚ since I have activated the keys that you hold in your hands, as you begin to call on their power, some are beginning to experience even greater miracles. You are beginning, but something is lacking and holding you back from becoming skilled in the use of the keys.

18. When My Father gave Me full access to every power source in Heaven and the universe, I did not immediately, that very same day, or even in the first week or month step out to call on their complete and full power. Why? Because in My flesh, like you‚ I had some lessons to learn about how to go about using the power of the keys. My Father instructed Me, as I have instructed you‚ to call on the power, to say the words, to use the power, to just do it, and as I obeyed in this, miracles were performed in varying degrees. Raising Lazarus from the dead was not among My first miracles; this was something that came in time as I learned to master the art of using the keys.

19. Day after day I was faced with the dire needs of the people, which drove Me to seek My Father further about My use of the keys. I was calling on the power, but as the crowds who followed Me grew to mammoth proportions, and as I was faced with greater and greater obstacles, as My ministry continued and Satan turned up the heat of his malicious attacks on Me and My disciples‚ I was driven to desperation to learn how I might use the keys to a greater degree.

20. I came to a point where I sensed something was threatening to hold Me back from using the full power of the keys. That morning, as was My custom, I rose early and walked up the mountainside to pray. I was more desperate than ever for a solution. I cried to My Father, “What is it? What is threatening to hold Me back from doing more? What more do I need to know? What more can I do with these keys? What do I lack to fully access their greater power?”

Focus on the Power

—Not on the Obstacles!

21. In that moment, His reply so clearly echoed in My ear as He said, “The vital element You must pursue, My Son, if You are going to use the keys to a greater degree, is You must learn to focus on the power! You must only focus on the power and the power alone.” What My Father spoke to Me that day was like turning on a light in a room. “Focus on the power!” Yes, of course, that was it, I thought to Myself! And My Father went on to give Me the following sound advice.

22. He told Me what I needed to do was focus more on the power of the keys than on the obstacles I faced. He said I needed to forget about looking at the obstacles and set My ­focus only on the power I had access to. I had to acknowledge that the obstacles were there; I had to acknowledge there was a problem; but when I was faced with an obstacle, I was to instantly focus on the power, focus on the keys‚ focus on My Father, on His Word, and on what I knew to be true.

23. I had to focus on His Word‚ on the power of the keys, not on the circumstances that sur­rounded Me. He told Me clearly that what I had to do was to ignore all other possibilities of sol­utions to any given problem or obstacle I faced. I had to ignore all other voices crying out to Me and only focus on the keys.

The Key to Focusing on the Power:

Take Immediate Action!

24. How was I to do this? I was in the flesh as you are‚ surrounded by the things of the Earth. I was not exempt from carnal thinking. My Father said it was simple, really—a simple matter of faith alone. I had to focus on His power rather than carnal thinking, and the way to do this was to exercise My faith in His Word, in His promises to Me, and most importantly‚ I had to not only claim His promise, but I had to act on the Word I was given.

25. I was to look fully to My Father by putting the instruction He gave Me into action; this was focusing on the power. I would shoot up prayers and hear from My Father on the spot, but the key to focusing on the power was to take immediate action and do what He told Me to do, and do it right then if He was so leading.

26. The key was not only in calling on the keys‚ but in following through. By taking action, by being a doer of the Word that I was given, there was no room to even contemplate other possibilities, which would block the power of the keys I had available to Me. Being a doer of the Word, obedient only to the will of My Father, was My declaration of faith. Obeying and acting on the Word—the power of the Word—opened the floodgates for the power of the keys to flow through Me.

Let My Word Dictate Your Life!

27. Today, you, My chosen of the Endtime, have volumes of My written Word, both new and old, and you have My voice at your beck and call through prophecy. If you are to avail yourselves of greater use of the keys, you must focus only on this. You must act on this power and be instant followers and doers of the Words I have spoken. And by this I don’t mean in part, but all the way. If you want all the power‚ you must go all the way.

28. Ask yourselves what happens when a person is fully focused on something. When you are fully focused—whether on a work project, an ideal‚ a goal, or a love relationship—that thing tends to consume all your time, all your energy‚ all your resources, all your passion. The bottom line is that the thing you’re fully focused on tends to dictate your life. This is what you must now do regarding the keys I have put in your hands. You must be so focused on the power of the keys and the Words I give you that they dictate your life. You must focus on the power to the point that the power is dominant in your lives.

29. Focusing on the power is letting My Words and the power you have in the keys dictate your life. It’s letting the keys and the things I instruct you to do have supreme rule in your life. As My Father’s Word to Me had to dictate My every action, so My Word to you must dictate all your actions. Focusing on the power is ignoring all possibilities other than what the keys and My Word can do for you. Focusing on the power is refusing any alternatives other than using the keys and standing on My Word.

30. I had to look to My Father’s Word rather than the circumstances I found Myself in. I had to look to the keys alone and claim their power, ignoring all else, and this is what you must also do. The power rules! The keys rule! The Word rules! You must believe it, stand on it‚ live by it!

31. My Word is alive, it’s action, it’s power­ful! It’s sharper than any two-edged sword. It can divide the soul and spirit, and discern the thoughts and intents of every heart. My Word is live power!

A Mystery Revealed!

32. And now I tell you a mystery, dear loves: The keys to the Kingdom and the Word are one. The keys are not just the Word; they are many things and they take on many forms. They are, however, one with the Word. Through the keys you find entrance to the full counsel of God. The keys open up My full Word power to you. You need not try to understand this with your carnal mind, but only believe.

33. As My Father and I are One, so are the keys to the Kingdom and the Word one. I have given you all power in Heaven and over Hell. I have put the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. I have opened to you, the children of David, the full range and full under­standing of My Word. This is what separates you from all other Christians in the world today. To you is given the full counsel of God. To you are given the keys to the Kingdom.

34. I tell you again, you need not ponder this deep truth in your carnal mind—only believe that the power of the keys and the power of the full and complete Words I give to you‚ My Endtime brides, are one and the same. To whom in all the Earth have I given such an awesome outpouring of My Words of life and truth as I have to you, the children of David? Receive and believe and call on the power of the keys!

35. Being an instant doer of My Word is directly linked with your ability to access the power of the keys. Living all the Words I speak to you is directly linked to the power you are able to access. When you live the Word, My power flows through you, and you, in a sense‚ become the living Word, as I was the living Word when I walked on Earth. When you call on the keys‚ all the power of My Word is at your command. If you are to focus on the power, you must look to the power of the keys; you must look to the power of the Words I speak to you; you must be instant doers of the Words I give you.

36. Nothing can stand against My Word! Nothing can stand against the keys to the Kingdom! Love is the greatest force; My Word is the greatest force; the power of the keys to the Kingdom is the greatest force in the world, in the heavens, in the universe! These three are one, just as My Father and I and the Holy Spirit are one—three separate beings with different attributes, and yet one in the spirit.

37. You, My loves‚ have the full set of the keys to the Kingdom in your hands, and to you I make available the full counsel of the Word of God. To you who love Me intimately and who give Me your all, I will hold back nothing. To you is given the full power, the full understanding of My Word. So if you are to focus on the power, you must live My Word to the full; you must be a doer of the things I tell you.

Adopt a “Do It Now” Policy!

38. If you want to focus on the power, My brides, you must learn to do as I did and adopt a “do it now” policy. This will help you stay focused‚ because in doing what I tell you without delay, you will be declaring your faith, and through this stand of faith, you will ward off the distraction of other things‚ carnal reasoning, and the impossibilities that try to bring you down.

39. You must hear from Me and take immediate action, nothing wavering, without so much as even considering any other possibility or alternative other than calling on the power of the keys. If you stop to consider other alternatives, this will lessen the power of the keys, for in so doing, you open the door for the ­Enemy to get a foothold in your heart and mind with temptation to waver and back down.

40. You must not look to the right or to the left. You must not even consider any other course of action. You must look straight on to Me alone and the things I tell you to do. You must simply follow through on what I tell you to do. This is focusing on the power. It’s not letting your focus get interrupted with other alternatives, with carnal thinking, with temptations of doubt, with negative input of the world, with anything other than My sure Word.

41. This is what I had to do during My public ministry on Earth. If I was to access the power of the keys to the greatest degree, I had to look only to the power of the keys‚ call only on the power of Heaven I possessed. My faith had to be in the power of the keys alone. I had to ignore all other possibilities of solutions to the problem. I had to look and act on what My Father told Me to do each time and ignore the circumstances around Me.

42. Through the “do it now” policy, I was allowing My Father’s highest will to dictate My life. There was no room to even consider any other course of action. Through the “do it now” policy, I was putting My faith into action, putting My Father on the spot, and claiming the power of the keys.

43. As I put this instruction into practice, My power was increased. Through putting the Words My Father spoke to Me into action on the spot, I became more fully focused on the power of the keys I held. Because I was claiming His power, because I took action, this cancelled out room for Satan to try to come in with the things I now warn you of—carnal reasoning‚ threats of doubt‚ and the ways of the world.

44. Through taking action instantly I was slamming the door on the Devil’s “it can’t be done” threats‚ on his “you can only go this far and no further” spiel, on his “what if it doesn’t work?” line, and on his doubts. The carnal mind is the enemy of the power of the keys, and I was not giving My carnal mind room to work because I was putting faith into action immediately and instantly doing what I was told from Heaven. This was the focus I needed to be able to avail Myself of the full power of the keys.

Text box:

45. (Jesus speaking:) One of the secrets to using the keys and receiving their power is hearing from Me about what My will is in that particular situation, and then claiming the power of the keys to fulfill My will. The keys only perform My highest will; they will not perform the will of man when it is not Mine, no matter how desperately you plead or claim their power. So it behooves you to find out from Me first what My highest will is. Then you can‚ in full faith and con­fidence, claim their power to fulfill My will.

46. So when I tell you not to consider other possibilities, I mean for you to first hear from Me as to what My will is, and that you should continue to hear from Me regarding what My will is‚ moment by moment. Then you can be confident in your focus and determination, knowing that you are in step with Me and that I will continue to lead you aright.

47. Another secret to harnessing the power of the keys is found in living the words of counsel I have poured out to you over the years—part of which is working in cooperation, counseling with your shep­herds and teamworkers, and operating in unity. The keys will not sow disunity. They will not function or give their power to those who are not pulling together with others to accomplish the goal I have put before you. “Do it now” means instant obedience, but part of that obedience is continuing to work in counsel and unity, not going off independently, or you will wind up missing My highest and lacking the power of the keys. (End of message from Jesus.)

Live More in the Spirit

Than the Flesh

48. Focusing on the power is a matter of simple childlike faith, and why I so often told those who followed Me that they had to be like children to go to Heaven. It’s a matter of believing and doing, of acting on what you know by faith to be true, and a matter of putting your faith into action. This is what focusing on the power is. You’ve heard these principles, My brides‚ for many years, yet these habits are not a reality in your lives. Now it must be, now you must make it so, and now with access to the full power of the keys you can do it.

49. To focus on the power you must walk more in the spirit than in the flesh. Remember, I was in the flesh as you are, and like you, I had to learn to rise above the flesh and walk more in the spirit than in the physical realm. I had to learn to walk above the things of the Earth and operate more in the realm of Heaven. This is what focusing on the power is all about; it’s about living more in the Heavenly dimension. This is what you will need to do in these Last Days. You must learn to not be concerned about the opinions of men and what others will think, to not lean on carnal reasoning, but to live more in the spirit than in the things of this world. This is what My prophets of old had to learn—to walk more in the fear of God than in the fear of man—and so must you.

50. Your father David taught you to live in the Word. I have told you to set your affection on things above and not on the Earth. This, too, you’ve heard for years on end‚ but now you must live it. Now being a doer of the Word must be your aim, your goal, and a central point in your life. If you are to focus on the power of the keys, if you are to allow the words I speak to you to dictate your life, you must rid yourselves of all that stands in the way of this. Detach yourselves from other things that clutter your life—the cares of the world, the pride of life, anything that opposes My Word.

51. You must choose Me over all every time. You must shed the weights and sins that would hold you back. You must stand true to the words of the anthem I have given you that says, “yielding all [to Me], without fear or hesitation.”

52. I have given you, My children, promise after promise of the great things I will do through those who access the power of the keys. This will only come by focusing on the power; by putting your faith in My Word alone; by ignoring all other possibilities; by putting Me on the spot; by obeying My Word in every area of your lives; by instant obedience to the things I tell you to do; by burning your bridges to the things of the world; by putting your trust in Me alone; by not only hearing but doing these things.

53. Do this, My loves‚ and you will discover the full power of the keys. You need not ask, “But we are weak and weary men, how can we do these things?” All you have to do is call on the power of the keys! Focus on the power! Do it now! Today the keys rule! My Word rules! And the people who focus on the power of the keys will rule and reign with Me in the power and might of the Kingdom of God!

Now is the hour, glory of Heaven,

My mighty power is at your command!

Come, take the stand, hand–in–hand, shoulder-to-shoulder,

March on together to your destiny.

Melted as one, weak and strong‚ younger and older,

You will rise above, with the song of victory!

54. Play it out, sing it out, ring it out—the song of victory! Today the keys rule! Focus on the power! (End of message from Jesus.)

55. (Mama: ) What you just read is not long or complicated; this truth from our Husband is not out of reach or impossible to attain. This counsel is for you, as an individual. What you do with this is between you and the Lord. Please take the time to seriously consider how you need to change your life in order to focus on the power and adopt a “do it now” attitude. Remember, those who obey immediately‚ who don’t hesitate or lag behind, are the ones who will receive the greatest rewards. Obey today and partake of all the Lord wants to give you!

Much love in our faithful Promise-keeper,

Mama

Questions to ask the Lord:

1.What “clutter” is there in my life that op­poses the Word and prevents me from focusing on it and obeying instantly?

2.What most often causes me to hesitate in my obedience or acceptance of the Word, and how can I overcome it? What are the weights and sins in my life that hold me back, and what should I do to forsake them?

3.How do the opinions of man and carnal reasoning hinder me? What can I do to be set free from these things?

4.What does “focus on the power” mean for me personally? What can I do to live more in the Word and let it dictate my life?

Heavenly Key Craft!

Karen Zerby

Feast 2003

By MariaMaria #635 CM/FM 3435 10/02

Dearest Family,

1. As the conclusion to this Feast, our Husband has revealed to us another of the wonders of the spirit! As the spiritual battle increases, He is making sure that our spiritual weaponry and the power at our disposal is more than equal to the task, praise His Name!

2. (Vision:) Several of us are gathered together. I see a large object hovering over us. It’s a circular vehicle of some kind‚ and it looks like a huge flying saucer suspended in the air above us.

3. The outer edge of it looks like it has a very wide corridor that goes all the way around the outside in a big circle. There seem to be people, or some type of live beings in there. This outer circle is where any movement of life is. The center of the saucer seems to be hollow. There don’t seem to be rooms in the center or any people.

4. It’s right over me now, and I can look up through the center and see the roof or the dome of this vehicle, and it’s so magnificent! The dome looks like it’s comprised of zillions of rays of light—only I don’t think it’s light, I get the impression it’s some other type of energy. All these fine rays of energy are crisscrossing in every which way across the top of the saucer. From a distance they look like they all blend together, but standing right below it and looking up through the hollow center, I can see how they are all intricately crisscrossed across the top of the vehicle and they form the roof or dome of the saucer.

5. I get the impression this dome is some type of energy force field. It pulsates and it’s glowing very brightly. Its radiance, like so many things of the spirit, is an absolutely brilliant golden glow. Its pulsations are right in rhythm with the sound it’s emitting. This dome also gives off warmth. It feels warm and comforting.

6. This object has another amazing feature—all around the circumference there are keys hanging! There are so many keys dangling, it looks like a fringe hanging on the edge. There are all different kinds of keys in many different shapes‚ but they all appear to be the same length. The keys look like they’re not only edged in fire, but like they’re made of fire—it’s stunning! The glow they give off is tremendous!

7. With these resplendent keys dangling off the edge, and the magnificence of the energy force field that is the top of the saucer, the entire vehicle is absolutely breathtaking! I keep getting the words: “The firepower of the keys!”

8. Right now the saucer is hovering over us and all is calm; the keys are dangling there beautifully. They seem to be gently blowing, as if in a gentle breeze, and sound is coming from the keys. They strike each other, and it makes the most incredibly beautiful sound—not aloud, but in my head. It sounds like beautiful chimes. It’s really quite overwhelming; the sound is definitely out of this world. It’s as though they’re playing a definite melody, all in chimes, as they dangle overhead.

9. The pulsations from the roof of the dome are right in tune with the chimes of the dangling keys; it’s all connected. It seems that the energy rays that make up the dome pump power to the keys that are dangling, and it’s all connected and right in tune with the rhythm of the chimes.

10. I get the impression that these key chimes are a signal of some sort, or a warning. They are a comfort, but they bring warning too.

11. Now the saucer above us is beginning to spin around and around‚ and as it does, the force of the spinning causes the keys to stick straight out from the edge of the saucer—like an extension of the saucer. It’s going very fast‚ and the energy from the force field of the dome is magnified hundreds of times over! The energy is gushing into the keys and it goes right through the keys and out all over the place!

12. It’s something like Tola and Tor and the energy that they are able to discharge and pour forth to defeat our enemies. This seems to be similar—the energy force that is coming out through all those keys! It’s gushing out in a tremendous volume as the vehicle is spinning around faster than anything I’ve ever seen!

13. Now I see out beyond where we are, and it’s very dark. I see out to the outer darkness beyond our walls, and there are all kinds of awful-looking creatures—demon beings, creatures who are horrific-looking to varying degrees. Mixed in with these beastly-looking monsters I see a few nice-looking beings too—handsome men and beautiful women—but they are all very, very evil. Some of them look good‚ but I have a very creepy feeling about these people who seem to be right at home with these unsightly monsters. All of them, even the nice-looking men and women‚ are very dark, very evil, and very deceptive. All of them are trying to get to us. They want to harm us, but they can’t.

14. The saucer is spinning and the keys on the edge of it are emitting their tremendous power, and it’s creating a force field over us and around us that cannot be penetrated. This power is keeping these evil ones away. They’re reaching out their hands as if they’d like to strangle us, or cast a spell on us, or destroy us if they could, but they can’t. They can’t touch us. They’re helpless. Their power is nothing. It’s so insignificant compared to the power the saucer and the keys are sending out.

15. The impression I get is that these evil ones are really upset. They’re up in arms at what’s happening right now as we gather for the Feast‚ as we read and take in these Words, and especially as we fast and pray and unite to launch a Word revolution in our lives. They want to prevent this plan, to hinder, to stop us before we even start, but they cannot.

16. The saucer is slowing down now, and again it’s hovering peacefully overhead. When this happens, the keys dangle again like they’re flowing in a gentle breeze, and when they do, I hear the chimes again. I wish I could describe the sound of the chimes or hum the melody. It’s so heavenly! I’ve never heard anything like it before.

17. The sound of these chimes is very, very special. It’s so comforting‚ so heavenly, but it seems to be very sobering too. Is it a warning of some sort, Lord? Perhaps they’re some kind of alarm for us. But their sound is so beautiful and majestic. They give a warm, soothing feeling. It’s not a lullaby kind of feeling; they’re not meant to lull you to sleep.

18. The sound of these chimes makes me feel totally protected. I have an overwhelming feeling of confidence when I hear them. I have peace. I know nothing can harm me. At the same time, they seem to be signaling me—but about what, I’m not sure. I feel confident about it and excited, because you know something very thrilling and awesome is about to happen. It’s strange in a good way.

19. (Jesus speaking:) I do not leave My children unprotected or unguarded at any moment. I have shown you the deep things of the spirit. I have revealed to you powerful and angry ones‚ vile, treacherous, ruthless enemies of My truth. I have revealed to you the identities of evil ones who are out to hinder‚ to slow down, and to stop you altogether, to stop the establishment of My Kingdom on Earth. I have shown these things to My prophets of the End, as I have promised that I will do nothing unless I reveal it to you (Amos 3:7).

20. Now I show you this powerful craft. This is part of the provision I make for your protection and safekeeping. What you have seen is a heavenly key craft. This is one of many. The key craft are at the disposal of those who hold the keys and who follow, who obey Me and use key power in their lives, those who endeavor to the best of their ability to live in My Word, to read, absorb and apply My Words.

21. The craft goes before you, manned with spirit helpers and spirit beings that are on call to assist you in any way you need, particularly whenever danger is near. The chimes signal you to walk in vigilance and prayer. At the same time they give you peace, knowing that the keys are with you and are at your command.

22. As I revealed to My prophets of old some of My heavenly spaceships, I now reveal to you this key craft transporter, one of the most remarkable and amazing heavenly transporters in existence. You’re not dreaming. This is real—it is in existence now. I pull back the veil and open your eyes and ears. As I revealed many far-out things to the prophets that have gone before‚ so I reveal these things to the children of David, so you can be encouraged and know just how near the world of the spirit is; so you can be comforted, knowing of the tremendous protection I provide for you.

23. As I revealed to your Father David the incredible space vehicle that transports the Heavenly City; as I showed Ezekiel many powerful heavenly wheels, and showed him pictures of My heavenly transporters and the throne of God; as I called John away to a remote isle so that I could paint for him the picture of the future and of the heavenly realm—so do I part the veil now and reveal to you this absolutely invincible vehicle!—The key craft‚ energy station of My key power. (Note: For further study, see Ezekiel 1:4-28, Revelation 4, and “Spaceship,” ML #624:1-53, Vol.5.)

24. I prefer to call it the key craft‚ for this craft transports the might and power and energy of the keys. It is spiritual, yet more real than life itself. Instruments of man cannot detect it, yet it is real, it is in existence. It is powerful‚ and it is to assist you in these Last Days.

25. The outer edge, the corridor you see, transports spirit helpers of all kinds‚ spirit beings and helpers sent from Me who are on call to help you. There is not one of Satan’s evil followers that is a match for these helpers who are possessed of Me.

26. The dome of the saucer is comprised of energy rays of key power magnified beyond count that man is able to comprehend. The dome pulsates with the energy of the keys‚ as the keys dangle from the edge to the tune of My power. The keys harmonize and sing you a new song—a song of power and strength, a song of fortitude and courage, a song of solace and faith, a song of victory of the Last Days. The keys go before you.

27. If you will listen, if you will tune in, if you will acknowledge the keys in all your ways, they will lead you. They will chime in your ear, warning you of danger spots, signaling you which direction to take, giving you checks of My Spirit. These chimes will serve as both a warning—signaling you, revealing to you the Enemy’s schemes and evil devices so that you can avoid his traps and pitfalls—and at the same time they will soothe you and give you comfort. They will uphold you as you stand in faith, knowing as you put your trust fully in Me, as you use the power I put in your hands, as you call on the keys and exert their power, you have nothing to fear—for no harm can befall the users of the keys. When you hear the key chimes, you will know you are not alone, and this will infuse you with peace as well as strength to carry out your mission.

28. I show you a demonstration of this key craft’s power. When you call on the keys, you rev up its engines, setting it spinning, releasing in great force its energy to destroy all evil and all who oppose My Words of truth. At your call, the craft reacts. At your call, the key power ignites and spins into action quicker than the speed of thought.

29. Believe these words, for those who believe will hear the chimes clearly in their spirits, in their hearts, in their thoughts; even audibly you will hear, when the time warrants. Believe and listen and follow the signal of the keys. I will hold back nothing from those who call on the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and tune in to their chimes. Let them be your protection. Let them guide you. Let them comfort you. Hear the chimes and be strong, knowing you are never alone.

30. (Mama: ) You might be wondering, as I did, what it actually means to “hear the keys.” Some people naturally hear things and see visions; others never do. But obviously this was an important part of the revelation‚ so we asked our sweet Husband to explain it further to us, or tell us how we can hear them or learn to recognize their presence. Here is what He said.

31. (Jesus speaking:) It’s all part of taking on heavenly thought power. The principle of the spirit that applies here is the more you use the power of the keys, the more you let them become part of you, the more familiar you will become with them, the more you will sense their presence and sense My will in any given situation. You will literally become one with them—for you will be becoming one with Me and My power, taking on My mind. It’s all linked.

32. At present it may be a rare instance that some can hear the keys audibly, and at first you’ll wonder if you’ll ever even be aware of their presence. Some people are more sensitive in the spirit or more receptive to actual feelings or visions or sensations of the spirit. But this is a gift for all My children, not just those who have a natural inclination that way. The more you use the keys, the more you will be able to recognize their opportunities to use them. The more you step out and obey and call on their power, along with living the requirements for accessing their full power, the more you will be taking on My mind, and thus the more you will hear and sense in the spirit the things of the spirit.

33. The sound of the key craft is a moving of the spirit. Some will hear it in their mind or heart, and some will sense it in other ways. Most will simply be aware in their spirit that it’s time to call on the keys, that the keys want to move and take action in the situation.

34. Honing that ability is very simple. You must simply obey, start using the keys, start living the requirements for harnessing their full power, and continue to claim full possession. As you progress in these areas, your spiritual sensitivity will naturally be heightened. It will happen automatically as you obey. And as you use this greater awareness of the things of the spirit that you’ll gain, rather than pushing it away or ignoring it‚ you will hone your spiritual senses to the point that they will be just as reliable and real to you as your physical senses.

35. It’s not a big, difficult thing that I’m asking of you. Just start to obey, and watch it all unfold as I have told you! This is part of your preparation for the future. It’s a miracle‚ a gift, something I’m giving you, My beloved brides, because I know you’ll need it. It’s part of heavenly thought power. It’s part of all that I’ve foretold in the Bible and through the ages about the Last Days, and the exploits that will be wrought by those who know Me intimately, as you do. (End of message from Jesus.)

36. (Mama:) To refresh your memory‚ here are a couple of quotes that explain the basic requirements for using the keys.

(From “Call on the Keys‚” ML #3368:80‚81, GN 962:)

There are obviously conditions attached to using the keys. We have to be obeying the Lord and asking for something that is within His will. The Lord also said: Because the gift of the keys is so priceless, I will only give it to those who are respectful of My Words, and those who are willing to be taught and instructed. … The keys are only activated through sincerity of heart, and without the quality of a deep love for Me, dedication‚ and yieldedness to Me, the keys give no power. … The gift of the keys is only for those who go further, who love Me, who live for Me, and who give their lives for Me. The gift of the keys is for My Endtime disciples.

“So seek within your own heart for the desire to be a disciple. The power of the keys will equal your commitment to discipleship, and not only your commitment, but your day-to-day living. As you dedicate yourself‚ and live your dedication daily, the power will come to you in the same measure. Then you must harness it and utilize it. These are the guidelines and the conditions of the keys of the Kingdom.”

*

(From the Keys Promises: )

There is no stopping those who use the keys of the Kingdom in conjunction with My will, in desperation of heart and humility of mind and spirit. When the conditions are right, the keys will always bring you victory. Claim what is rightfully yours.

End of text box

37. (Vision:) I see the key craft again. It’s hovering overhead. Only this time it’s giving a demonstration of a different kind. I’m right under it. The dome is illuminated with its stunning glow, as the keys dangle and the chimes play. But this time the keys are sending down rays of their energy, and the rays are totally surrounding me. The rays coming straight down are forming a wall of energy all around me that blazes like fire! I praise You‚ wonderful Love! It’s such a soothing, comforting feeling. I feel totally protected.

38. (Jesus speaking: ) The key craft is on call for you, My loves, whenever you have need. It goes before you, to warn you of danger ahead, to guide you and protect you from your enemies. Likewise, when you call‚ it hovers over you at all times, to protect and keep you in every way. It is there to provide your needs. It will infuse you with strength, rejuvenate and regenerate you when you feel at a low ebb. It is there to help you withstand the attacks of the Enemy—be it attacks on your mind, heart‚ or spirit, or outside attacks through persecution, accidents, harm or danger of any kind. It is not that the Enemy will stop attacking, but through the presence of the key craft you have yet another shield and weapon at your disposal to strengthen and fortify you in the spiritual warfare.

39. Listen, and when you hear the sound of the key chimes‚ let it comfort your hearts and know that you are protected, surrounded by the energy force of the keys of the Kingdom.

40. Believe‚ for these are words of truth. Listen, do you hear it? Listen and you will hear in your mind and heart, and in some instances you will even hear audibly or sense its presence tangibly in soon-coming days. For this is the power of the keys, real as real can be.

41. (Vision: ) I see different scenes of other Family members under a key craft and within the walls of energy. I see a Family Home of about 10 members sitting at the dining table enjoying a meal and fellowshipping together. They’re under a craft with the rays of energy coming down all around them. I see two Family members riding on a city bus, and a craft is hovering over them, shining down its rays of energy around them. I see Family members getting Activated subscriptions, and the same wall of energy is surrounding them. I see a group of Family members gathered together for devotions‚ reading a new GN; a craft is overhead and shining down its rays.

42. I see a Family show group up on stage, playing to a large audience of several thousand people, and they too are in the center of a craft’s protective energy rays, which are surrounding them.

43. Now I see the globe, a map of the world, and I see several key craft. They’re hovering over countries where the Family is living and working, and the craft are shining down their rays over the Family in those countries. They’re not the same size as those countries; it’s a symbolic thing.

44. (Jesus speaking:) All power of Heaven is at your command! Believe‚ hear the key chimes. Listen and know that I keep all My promises to you. The keys go before you. The keys will guard and protect. As you wield the keys‚ they have the power to withstand all evil, enabling you to read, absorb, and apply My Words, so that you can live in My Words and do what I ask you to do.

45. Listen to the chimes, and know that the keys are with you, and the keys make all things possible to you. The chimes are proof that the keys surround you, though they guard you whether you sense them or not. You are safe within their walls, protected by the greatest power in existence. The keys of the Kingdom are yours; there is nothing they will not do for you. (End of message from Jesus.)

46. (Mama:) One of the first questions that came to mind after hearing this amazing description is how many of these cool key craft there are! So we asked the Lord‚ does each person have an individual key craft, like the Halloween wheel, or is there one per Home, or how many are there? For example, if we’re somewhere and praying for a key craft‚ and someone else is also claiming the keys at the same time, does it divide, or do we each have one, or how does it work?

47. (Jesus speaking: ) There are a limitless number of key craft. They go wherever the power of the keys is needed and called upon. There are plenty to go around. As many as are needed are sent. All you must do is call on the keys, and know that they will be there for you. When a group of you is calling on the keys together, one will come to surround you and bring the anointing and helpers you need. Or, if you are alone or spread out in many locations, and you call on the keys, again there will be one there for each of you, at your disposal. Never fear that they will all be out and occupied on a mission when you need one, for whenever you call, there will be one there for you, bringing the light, power‚ comfort and additional helpers of the spirit or reinforcements that you need. (End of message from Jesus.)

48. (Mama:) Thank You, dear Lover, for revealing to us these deep things of the spirit. Thank You for opening our spiritual eyes to see what power is at our disposal. We want to learn to harness it. We want to become one with You. We do want full possession by Your wonderful Spirit. We want to take on Your mind in our thoughts and reactions and actions. We need heavenly thought power in order to make it through the days ahead. We want to become more in tune and sensitive to the things of the spirit, so that our spiritual senses are just as real and reliable as our physical senses, if not more so.

49. Please give us the faith, conviction and determination that we need to obey Your Words‚ to step out on the water, to hone these gifts of the spirit. Thank You for revealing them to us. Help us not to just let them sit there‚ but to really cherish them, study Your Word on them, let You teach us about them, and make them a part of our lives.

50. Help us now as we return to our lives of service for You to put Your Words into practice. Help us to be willing to fight and make whatever sacrifices are necessary in order to make this Word revolution a reality in our lives and Homes. We claim the keys of lasting change, of faith and determination and obedience. Help us not to lose the closeness to You that we have gained during these days. Even as we leave the temple and go out into the wings, help us to take Your Spirit with us, and return daily for that cleansing, feeding and strengthening that is so vital for our spirits, especially when our spirits are worn down by the spiritual battle that surrounds us these days.

51. Unite us all in You, sweet Love, and keep us strong for You. Your goal in all of this is to help us become better witnesses, better disciples, so that You can use us to win more for You, so we can get the job done quicker, so that You can return and set up Your Kingdom here on Earth. That’s what we’re working toward. That’s what all these gifts are to help us do. They’re not merely for self-improvement, they have a much greater purpose—that of helping us to get the job done better, more quickly and easily‚ with less casualties and difficulties along the way.

52. So help us to keep that vision, dear Jesus, and give our all to become the witnesses, disciples and prayer warriors that You want us to be. We love You! We praise You‚ our Miracle Worker, our Strength, our Protector, our All in All.

Keys Turned to Swords!

Karen Zerby

FEAST 2002

By MariaMaria #593 CM/FM 3375 10/01

Dearest Family,

1. The next course of this tremendous Feast that our Husband has laid before us is a vision of how we are to use the keys in the spirit! If you can concentrate with your eyes closed and it doesn’t make you drowsy, then shut your eyes as one person reads and ask the Lord to show you the pictures as He showed them to the channel who received this.

2. (Mama prays: ) Precious Love, thank You for another opportunity to sit at Your feet and watch as You reveal to us the secrets of Heaven. Open our hearts and minds now to receive all that You have to give us. Help Your Words to take root in our lives from the moment we hear them. We don’t want to remain the same—we want to change and revolute and progress with You, Jesus!

3. We call on the keys now for faith to receive, and against any distractions of the ­Enemy, any pride or carnal-mindedness that would hinder our receptivity to whatever You want to tell us. Increase our faith and capacity to receive from You, darling Husband. Take away anything that is holding us back. Wash us clean, and fill us with Your thrilling Words and Spirit. We want nothing of ourselves, only You, precious Love! Thank You for giving to us so abundantly! We praise and adore You, sweet, wonderful Jesus!

Vision of Keys-Turned-to-Swords!

4. (Vision:) I see an amazing thing—it’s like a movie! There are Family members, both male and female, FGAs and SGAs, in various scenes—a big panorama unfolding right before me! In every scene, each Family member is in a real tight spot—either a situation where they’re in grave danger, such as in the middle of a major catastrophe, or with our enemies chasing them, or a scene where it’s just an impossible situation and they really need help, such as someone needing a major healing.

5. But I see the most incredible thing! In each scene, in order to get out of the predicament they’re in, something awesome happens that pulls them out of trouble. When they get in a tight spot‚ they look straight ahead, they ­focus, and they give a little nod or a glance of acknowl­edg­ment. I think this nod is like they’re calling for help. They know where to find help, and when they give the nod, they set their eyes on this one focal point—it’s very definite—and they know the help will come. Each one is completely at ease and very confident in the fact that the help will be there.

6. When they give the signal, a set of golden keys appears before them—boom, just like that! It happens very quickly and there’s no hesitation. As soon as they need help, they instinctively give the nod, and in that same instant the keys appear before them.

7. But that’s not all! Right at the same time, a beam of light shines from their eyes! It’s very strong. A brilliant light shines out of their eyes as they set their eyes on the focal point‚ and a set of keys appears. It’s like they focus‚ and this strong beam of light appears, shooting out from their eyes to the focal point, and the keys are there. This is all happening quickly. All these things happen simultaneously as they signal for help. And that’s not all!

8. They also extend their arms at the same time that the beam of light shines from their eyes, as if reaching out to grab something. Wow! It’s very cool‚ because as they do this‚ in a flash, the keys transform into this amazing weapon! It’s stunning! It looks like a huge sword‚ and it’s glowing so brightly‚ it looks like it’s edged with fire! It’s brilliant! The shine is almost too bright to look at; it’s almost blinding!

9. All of these things happen simultaneously. They focus, a beam of light shoots out of their eyes, they reach their arm out to take hold of something, the keys are there, and they grab the keys as the keys turn into this awesome weapon. It all happens in an instant.

10. That weapon is so bright! I think it might even be blinding to some! I feel like I can look at it, because the Lord is protecting my eyes, but not everyone can look at it without being blinded. Or maybe it’s that it causes blindness to some, like to our enemies, and definitely to evil beings who try to cause us harm. It’s like a sword of bright light, but also like a raging fire, and it has great explosive power. I sense its edge is as sharp as can be, and at the same time white-hot. You know you don’t want to get in its way. It’s big‚ and it looks hefty, but each Family member is wielding it with incredible ease. They have great command over it.

11. Each one who focuses calls on the keys and reaches out to grab hold of these powerful weapons. Once they have them in their hands, they wield them in the most amazing way! They’re so fast as they maneuver them every which way. Those holding them are just slashing away, like zip, zip, zip—to the right, to the left, up, down, overhead, around their backs. It’s somewhat like those guys who wield those karate weapons. They swing them around so fast, only this is even quicker, and the Family members are much‚ much more skilled in their handling of them than anything I’ve ever seen. There’s no match for the speed, skill, agility and finesse with which they handle these weapons!

12. As these Family members wield these weapons, anything that’s in their way is defeated. They wield them so fast! It’s very powerful, but very slick, smooth‚ and easy how they handle them, as if with effortless ease. They’re very skilled in their handling of the weapon‚ very sharp. They go so fast, it looks like what I’m seeing is playing in supersonic, fast–forward speed. It’s amazing!

13. In each scene I see‚ there’s not one situ­a­tion where the brethren are not able to overcome whatever obstacle stands in their way as long as they focus and signal for this help. It’s right there at their fingertips, and as they start wielding this weapon, it does whatever they need. It slays enemies. It holds back the weather in some cases. Or in other cases it brings raging storms‚ earthquakes, volcanoes, tor­nados, terrible lightning and thunder upon the wicked and those who fight against the people of God. It heals the sick. It releases captives.

14. I see one scene that looks like a prison, where a Family man about in his thirties is freeing all the prisoners. He’s slashing away with his weapon and the locks of every cell fall off and the prisoners are free. Only now I see that it’s not really a prison, as in an institution with harden­ed criminals‚ murderers, and whatnot. In reality it’s an office building of some sort, and the prisoners are employees, all sitting in their little cubicles working away at their desks, sitting in front of computers and answering phones, etc. It seems like he’s freeing the prisoners of the System.

15. This weapon also brings supply. In one scene I see these huge floodgates being opened. But it’s not water that’s flowing out of them; it’s goods, food, clothing, needs.

16. In another scene I see Family members high on a hill, and there’s a large crowd flocking around them. It reminds me of how you would picture Jesus speaking to the multitudes on a hillside, with thousands of people around Him. But these people are very frightened, and they’re all reaching out and running to the Family members who are standing on the mount. They’re crying out, “Save us‚ feed us!”

17. In that scene all of a sudden the brethren signal for help from the keys. Reaching out to grab their swords, they wave them like a magic wand over the crowds, and a great calm comes over them. Each one settles down, and instantly a little portable table, set with food, appears in front of each person in the crowd. The brethren speak to them; it seems they’re prophesying to the crowds.

18. Now I see someone wielding their sword, and it’s blinding the eyes of authorities. I see on the uniforms of these officers the number 666.

19. In another scene I see these gigantic, ugly beings! They look as big as dragons, and they’re horrendously ugly, but with one flick of the sword they’re slain.

20. One woman is wielding her sword over a sick man lying in intensive care in a hospital unit, and he jumps right up to his feet.

21. Now I see several Family members all lined up. It seems like they want to give me a demonstration. In perfect unison, they all give the signal and reach out to take hold of the keys-turned-to-swords at the same time. They’re all perfectly synced as they grab their weapons and wield them. It looks so easy for them, as if they’re twirling a baton in front of them, then to the side, and around their back, then throwing it up in the air and catching it. All of this is happening with super speed.

22. Now, all of a sudden, they flip their huge fiery swords, throw them up in the air, and as they catch them‚ the weapons turn back into beautiful golden keys, several on one key ring, and these keys just slip right into their pockets. Oh, it’s beautiful! I can see the keys right through their clothes‚ glowing in their pockets. The keys are always with them‚ and when they need them they quickly transform and appear right before them as the Lord showed us earlier.

23. All those who gave this demonstration are standing there with their arms raised in praise to the Lord. No one has a proud look or a sense of, “Hey, look what we did!” There is no sense of self-confidence. They’re rather serious, and they all seem to know very clearly that it’s only the Lord. They’re standing there with arms raised, praising and giving thanks to the Lord‚ giving the Lord all the credit and all the glory. Then they fall to their knees‚ their heads bowed, and they’re saying a prayer. (End of vision.)

24. (Jesus speaking:) To those who meet the requirements for using the keys, it is given to wield the greatest power in all existence! Nothing can stop you, nothing can hurt you, nothing can overcome those who focus on the power of the keys! These keys you have always with you, My loves. They go with you always. To the ends of the Earth‚ into the future‚ and into the next world, they are with you. As long as you stay focused on the keys, they will never leave you, never let you down, never fail you.

25. Tests will come, yet through every fierce attack of the Enemy upon you‚ in the face of all obstacles, against all impossibilities, the keys are at your command. There is no stopping this powerful weapon I put in your hands. There is no stopping you as you use it in conjunction with My will, in desperation of heart and humility of mind and spirit.

26. Call on the keys often, My loves. Wield them wisely. Handle them prayerfully. And know this: As I refused to use Heaven’s power for My Own personal gain and desires, for mere show or to “amaze” the people, so you must do also. These keys are not given for your own glory, but for the glory of God. They’re given that My light and force and power may be clearly seen through you, that all might glorify Me. They’re given to you that you might do the things I ask of you.

27. It’s a serious responsibility I place on your shoulders. Your use of the keys is not meant to be showy in that they bring you glory. I have entrusted the keys to the children of David not to glorify yourselves, but to glorify the Kingdom of Heaven. Be not as the proud of other folds who use their gifts in a pompous show, but glorify Me, in humility of spirit, in all things.

28. This gift makes you servants of others. Now your responsibility is greater, and along with it comes great obligation—obligation to serve one other and to serve those whom I bring to your folds, those who seek out righteousness and truth. The keys are to be taken out and put to use, for they are a gift that I give you to accomplish My will. They will be your survival now and in the coming days. Use them. Do something with them. Hide them not away, for they are meant to help you accomplish My will.

29. When you avail yourselves of this awesome power I have given you, it will humble you. For as you wield the power of Heaven, you will know in your hearts how small you are‚ how weak you are, how dependent you are on Me. Yet this will bring great fruit‚ great happiness to you‚ and great satisfaction—that which knows no bounds! You’ll fall down before Me in praise and thanksgiving for the satisfaction of knowing you accomplished the will of God; you yielded and were made instruments in the hands of the Almighty; you fought and won, in spite of weakness, short­comings, failures and mistakes.

30. You focused‚ you reached out, you took hold, you wielded the mighty weapon of God accurately‚ faithfully, and boldly! You were the instruments in My hand, used to establish My Kingdom on Earth. The great joy and thanksgiving you will have in your heart in that day is beyond expressing in mere words. There is no greater rush, no greater accomplishment, no greater satisfaction than that of knowing you did the will of God. (End of message from Jesus)

31. (Mama:) Don’t let this awesome gift escape you, dear loves, due to lethargy‚ procrastination, lack of faith, being dull in the spirit or not taking this revelation seriously. Those keys-turned-to–swords can be yours! This isn’t a figment of someone’s imagination! This is real—and it’s for you! Grab those keys and wield those fiery swords by faith today!

Excited with what the future holds, Mama

Questions to ask the Lord:

You said, “This gift makes you servants of others.” In what ways does my attitude need to change in order to be a true servant of others? How can I more actively give You all the glory in my life? How can I continue to make progress in overcoming my pride and learning to be more humble so that You can shine through unobstructed?

GN 1118 FD/MM/FM / Feast 2005

To be read during the evening/closing celebration on the last night of the Feast

By Maria FD/MM/FM 3525 12/04

Dearest Family‚

1. To close this Feast, our Husband has given us a peek into how things look in the spirit, now that we have completed our Feast days. You’ve worked hard, labored in prayer, and things are different! I pray it will be encouraging for you to hear how He sees the fruits of your labors, and that it will motivate you to follow through on the commitments you have made with faith and determination.

2. You’ll probably find that some of the practical implementations of your decisions will need to be tweaked as you go along. There will be things to adjust and find a good balance in, and there’s a lot more hard work ahead of you as you implement these decisions. That’s all part of the process of becoming a winning Home; it’s all part of winning the war. But right now you have fought and triumphed in one battle, and that’s cause for celebration! It’s one by one that we’ll win the battles, and eventually the war.

Celebrate the victories!

3. It’s important to watch for the victories, notice them, point them out, and celebrate them together! Yes, we’re fighting a war and there are continual battles, but the Lord is merciful, and each battle comes to an end and then new ones start. So each time a battle is won, or even just progresses to a new stage, it’s good to mark that step of progress with celebration and praise to our Husband and encouragement for your mates and loved ones. Whether you celebrate with an actual occasion (which is good to do sometimes, and doesn’t have to be fancy or elaborate, unless the occasion warrants it), or whether you just focus some of your united praise time on appreciating our Husband and each other‚ celebrating each step of progress‚ each victory, is a very good habit to cultivate.

4. You’ll find that you have so much to praise the Lord for, so much that you can rejoice in together as a team‚ and it makes the progress seem faster, as you’re noticing and praising the Lord at each little step. It will help the battles pass quicker, the victories seem sweeter, and will give you more strength and inspiration and determination as you fight through the battles‚ because you’ll come to recognize that each battle does come to an end! No particular battle is endless or goes on forever. Realizing this is a key to learning to love the fight! So learn to celebrate the victories! Right now we have a real milestone to celebrate together! Praise the Lord!

5. So relax and appreciate each other now as you hear these words of appreciation from our Lover. He sees and knows all the personal sacrifices you made over the last three days for the sake of unity, the times you swallowed your pride, and the times you stretched in the spirit and gave even more than you thought you were ready to give, the times you committed to full obedience to the Word even at personal cost. He knows it all‚ and will reward you abundantly!

6. One very immediate reward is His confirmation that as a Family we are moving on to fulfill our destiny, instead of falling by the wayside through compromise, lethargy, and disobedience! Praise to our wonderful Lover, and lots of appreciation to each of you, our mates and co-workers‚ who have made the right decisions and are helping to move this Family forward!

According to your faith‚ it is done!

7. (Jesus:) When I give you a mandate and you rise to the challenge and implement that directive to the best of your ability, there are compensations. According to your faith to answer My call, and according to the commitments you make to Me, I honor, bless, and reward you.

8. During My ministry on Earth, two blind men cried out to Me for mercy. When they didn’t give up, but instead followed Me‚ continuing to beg for grace, I was taken aback by their persistence. So I stopped and asked them if they believed that I was able to give them sight. And when they did not waver but answered “yes,” their decision—choosing to believe—set things in motion. Their declaration of faith moved Me, and I touched them, saying, “According to your faith be it unto you.” I opened their eyes and gave them sight—the reward of their faith.

9. And as Feast 2005 comes to a close, I say the same to you, My brides: “According to your faith it is done unto you!” You have stretched your faith and followed through on the things I have asked of you, and now I will honor and reward you.

10. You have put your faith into action during these workshops. You’ve labored, prayed, discussed, counseled, deliberated, come to Me for answers, and made commitments before each other and before Heaven. Those of you who choose to give all to Me, I give My all to you in return. Be assured that I will uphold My end of the bargain; according to your faith and according to your commitments, I will greatly bless you.

Preparation for the final act!

11. (Jesus:) The decisions you have made during these Feast days—and I’m not even talking so much about the obvious ones, the practical ones, but I’m talking about the ones that you made in your heart during the discussions, decisions to sacrifice out of love for Me, and decisions of commitment to obedience and to My Word—will be greatly blessed and rewarded.

12. The tough choices you have come to, the right paths you have taken, even though they have seemed more difficult than the easier way of lethargy, will bring down the blessings of Heaven that I previously had to hold back because you were not ready to receive them.

13. You are also eligible to receive My power now in even greater ways because of your decisions to obey, to fulfill My will, and to remain true to the standard of My Word. No battle you face will be greater than My power to overwhelm the Enemy in every fight. No drive of obedience will be more taxing or difficult than the supply of key power that is available to you to accomplish what you have set out to do in accordance with My will in your life. Nothing has the means to stop the power I have made available to you. Everything is possible to you through the keys you hold as a contract with Me.

14. You hold in your hands the token that I have given you of victory in every area. In your hands you hold the power to open any door, to follow through with any commitment, to make any change needed‚ because you have My Name written on the keys.

15. The key of obedience is a vital one for you to claim and use now. It is through this key that the gates of Heaven will be opened to you‚ and through which you will come into My presence like never before.

16. I’m excited to see what you will do with this power. I’ve trained you‚ cleansed you, and set you free to use this power. Use it wisely, call on it regularly, and invoke the spiritual powers you have available to you through this charm—the charming charm of the keys of Heaven. The keys may look quaint, they may look pretty and like something you’d adorn a necklace with, but through this power you turn the locks to the powerhouses of Heaven, which will release anything you need or desire in order to do My will in your life.

17. Though the keys may look small, and using them may not seem to you to be that important in this day and the daily situations you are faced with, they open the smaller locks‚ which will open the larger locks, which will in turn cause the massive barriers which currently hold back the floodgates of Heaven’s power to be turned‚ and power such as you have never seen will be released to you!

18. Does this amaze you? Does the grandeur and magnificence of My promises even cause you to wonder about the veracity of My Words? I tell you that the power that is coming, the power that the keys are destined to unlock to you, is unprecedented on Earth. Never has nor ever will this power be available again, for it has been reserved for this time which is coming. The keys have the power to unlock the humongous floodgates that hold back the tide of My power, much as a dam holds back the incredible force of the reservoir it contains. When the time is right and you have fulfilled all the requirements I have asked of you‚ you will use the keys in this lock, and then, My brides, things will really begin to move.

19. Right now you have the keys, and you’re being asked to use them on what seem to be smaller locks, but what you don’t realize is that all these tests are leading up to something much greater. Before you can get to the last lock, you must go through a maze of tests, training, more tests, and finally, when the hour is come, you’ll slip that key into the lock and the tumblers will begin to turn. The gates will open and down will pour the most powerful flood of My power that this world has ever seen!

20. The miracles I have done in the past will seem small compared to what’s ahead for you. The gates of Heaven are bursting at the seams; they cannot contain much more power! I have been filling this storehouse over the centuries‚ preparing the power to be released, and now the sequence has been set in motion, the power has been approved, and you just have to make it through the maze of smaller locks till you get to the really big lock that will set the final stage of your world’s history in motion!

21. I know it takes faith. I know that continually unlocking smaller locks can even get tiring at times. But as you unlock one gate, you enter the next level, and each one brings you closer to the final lock, which will unleash this power.

22. Don’t be a weak link in the chain. Everyone has to open their locks; they must all be opened in order for everyone to receive this power. The closer you get to the day of final release of this power, the more powerful you will become in spirit. The miracles I perform through you will become more and more obvious, miraculous, and outstanding.

[Box]

23. (Question: ) What if someone doesn’t open their lock? Will that hinder the release of Your power?

24. (Jesus:) Everyone who attains to the rank of My Endtime elite forces will fulfill their role. If you don’t fulfill your role, then you won’t be part of the “everyone” referred to here. You are all in training now and you have in a sense already become part of the current elite, but as time progresses, there will be further training and steps to take in order for you to stay in the elite and partake of this power.

25. In this instance, I am referring to weak links who won’t fulfill their part and admonishing you not to be one of them. You won’t wash out immediately if you become a weak link, but if you remain one, you will, and you will drop right off the chain. However, My overall plans won’t be frustrated. The power will be released when all who continue on in My elite open their locks. Then that power will pour on My elite and they will have the anointing that they need in the Endtime. (End of message.)

[End of box]

26. Your destiny is to be the ones who have the final key to turn the final lock. No angel in Heaven, no spirit being has this power. This is your destiny—you of the children of David. This is what I am counting on you to fulfill.

27. Make the changes needed, do whatever it takes to unlock every lock you are faced with, so that you can stand with your brethren in that day when the final key is slipped into the final lock, and the earthshaking noise of the floodgates of Heaven echoes around the world, and you experience My power like never before!

28. Don’t miss out on this monumental event through doubt or laziness. Use the keys today. Change your life with the keys, change your Home with the keys, activate My power in your life today with the keys, and move ever closer to the final event.

[Box]

29. (Question:) Lord, You talk about the final key and the final lock and the final release of this power. In what sense is it final? Does that mean it will be the end of our use of the keys and their power?

30. (Jesus:) It is final in the sense that it is the final key in the final lock in the final act of this era of Earth’s history. This does not mean that there are not more keys or more locks or more plays with yet more acts—just that the curtain will have gone down on this particular play. The curtain will rise again with the opening of the Millennial play, with its many keys and acts, and you, My dears‚ will play your roles in that drama as well.

31. Your bard Shakespeare said that “all the world’s a stage,” and he was correct. In fact, all of your history is a stage, with your lives and actions being ensamples to others either for good or for bad. So play your role well, with love and obedience‚ so that you might be a star. This role is open to all who love Me and who obey Me‚ and as such‚ you will shine forever! (End of message.)

[End of box]

32. You, the children of David, are the key bearers! Carry them proudly‚ loyally‚ and do whatever it takes by their power to overcome every obstacle‚ so that you might have the privilege of opening this lock. Many have sought this privilege, but it has been entrusted to you. You have been prepared, destined, and called to this mission. Complete your mission, finish the task, run the race, and receive the rewards that await you.

33. Each of you is important. Each of you is called specifically for this time in history. Each of you is being placed where I need you to be—so don’t fail in your part of the mission. Unlock the power by unlocking the daily challenges through the use of the keys you have in your hands. You must use the keys to release the power. Without your completion of this mission‚ the floodgates will not open. They wait for you.

34. Use the keys! Fulfill the requirements for being a strong and effective wielder of the power! Become one with them! Make it a priority to do what I have said every day—for every day that you do brings you closer to the final code, which will be unlocked when all the other doors have been opened.

35. There won’t be doubts in your mind at that time. Sins won’t hold you back. You will have given your all for Me, and I will be able to use you as My pure brides. Your testimony will be powerful and unspoiled. You will be melded together in unity and obedience, and will be like one giant key, which I will use to unlock the power. You must do your part to complete the key. Your steps of obedience, yieldedness, humility, unity, the times you call on My power and become strengthened as a wielder of the keys, all of these things help to complete the puzzle, so that in the End, My power will be released unto you in full measure.

36. I guarantee you that these words are true. I guarantee you that you will see this power. I will accomplish that which I have set out to accomplish from the foundations of the world. Only do as I have asked and obey Me, and this privilege will be yours. Indeed, many millions and billions have wanted to see this day and live in this time, but it is given to you to see these days and be part of this final event, if you so choose.

37. Even if you die in faith, your personal part of the key will be fulfilled. So don’t worry or fear, but give all your life to Me. Burn brightly for Me every day so that you might interlock with the other pieces that have gone on before you to create this final key, for the final lock, for the final power. Don’t fail in your mission. I’m counting on you!

38. (Vision: ) I saw a picture of a massive metallic barrier‚ so tall I couldn’t imagine its height. It was surrounded at the top by clouds—not clouds in an earthly sense, but clouds of energy, boiling, seething‚ and almost overwhelming the barrier. As in the spirit I placed my ear to the barrier, I heard a low powerful rumbling coming from behind the wall.

39. I saw a huge lock—resembling a combination lock—in a circular star with many points. I visually penetrated the barrier to see huge bars running through the entire barrier holding it together. I saw the lock turning only slightly, as if it were being moved into the right position to expose a circular–shaped keyhole or opening. I heard the giant clunk as each point of the star was locked into place. Then I saw out of the corner of the picture someone unlocking a smaller lock with a golden key. As they did this‚ the giant lock moved again, pounding into place with a heavy thump, almost as if it were on a countdown sequence.

40. Then I saw a very beautiful sight. I saw a light blue key made of light. It was like a 3–D puzzle which wasn’t yet complete. I saw little different-shaped pieces rising from the Earth, which would click into place‚ interlocking with the existing pieces, completing part of the key. It was as if I was watching the world from the beginning of time. Each person the Lord had called to be a piece of this key, as they did their part and their mission was ended, their section of the key clicked into place.

41. As it grew faster and faster, I saw more and more people on Earth praying, saying, “I claim the keys,” then praising for the victory. As the key segments rose from the Earth, I saw each piece locking into place to the faster and louder sound of the huge lock being turned. The pounding was so loud I could feel it in my chest. Then I saw, as it got closer to the end, that the key segments were rising faster and faster, till it was a blur of light rising from the Earth, pausing‚ then clicking into place, finishing the key.

42. Then I heard a loud tolling of a bell, very regal, heavy, and powerful. In the background I heard machinery powering up, humming as the energy rose. The air began to crackle and snap with power as the key began to move toward the lock.

43. I saw the huge barrier and lock again. Beneath it were standing thousands of microscopic people who were watching this huge key move toward the lock. The interesting thing about the key is that it wasn’t like a normal key in appearance, but rather it was shaped like a long cylinder with rounded ends, similar to a test tube.—An extremely complex and intricate key, and yet it was so large.

44. It zoomed forward and slammed into the lock with a powerful thud. I heard the heavy bars in the barrier snap back one at a time as heavy thuds in sequence. Then the keyhole began to shine very brightly, and suddenly the barrier vanished and a massive stream of white gold poured out and covered the Earth! I saw it boiling, sizzling, and crackling around the globe. It was destructive to evil, but to us it was incredibly positive. I saw Family members getting empowered. They were filled with the power that was poured out. The feeling was very powerful when I looked into their eyes. It was almost as if they were no longer there, only the power that was fully possessing them.

45. Then I saw miracles being performed all over the world—healing, protection, power streaming from their hands and mouths devouring the Enemy. And the words came to me to close this vision: “The final act!” (End of vision.)

46. (Mama:) What an awesome message from our Lover! What a privilege to be able to see the end from the beginning in the spirit, and know what awaits us if we continue in obedience!

47. It’s so encouraging to hear the Lord confirm that we are on our way to fulfilling our destiny! Of course, we have a lot of hard work ahead of us, many more decisions to make, battles to win, and steps to take. But at least we’re not sinking into the morass of the System and being defeated through disobedience and compromise!

48. It’s also very motivating to hear how each time we wield the power of the keys, it takes us closer to the final event, it prepares us, and it prepares things in the spirit realm. It’s essential to be using the keys now if we’re going to be the mighty wielders of the power in the future!

49. We have so much to look forward to‚ dear Family! A toast to Jesus, our wonderful Husband, and to His continued direction‚ guidance, and shepherding, which is helping us become the Family of the Future! To our King!

50. Have a wonderful time now celebrating His love, the victories that are behind us, and the many more that are to come as we continue in obedience!

With love and prayers for each of you‚

Mama

Praise and bonding exercises‚ from which you can choose and adapt if you wish, to use as the Lord leads you in the course of the evening, and the remainder in later meetings and celebrations:

[Box]

51. (Jesus: ) I love to hear you glorify My Name. I love to see you lift your arms in praise to Me, rejoicing and giving thanks to Me for the blessings I pour out on your life. I rejoice in your praises to Me, for they draw you closer to Me; they bind our hearts in unity and love. I find such satisfaction in the ways you strive to live in love and abide by My Word, because it bonds you as one—My Bride. Your praises and glorification of My power that is manifested in your lives brings such joy to My heart, for it shows the beauty and depth of your love for Me, My loving‚ obedient, loyal‚ desirous, and yearning Bride.

52. Rejoice in My blessings, in My power, in My great love for you. Give thanks for the unshakable foundation you have in Me. Love Me with your words. Lift Me up through your songs, and sing your praises to Me, for I delight in your praises, your kisses to Me.

[End of box]

53. • Popcorn phrases about the benefits that will come about as a result of this Feast and the strengthening of the Family. (For example, stronger ties of unity, increased productivity, wholehearted disciples, happier children, etc.)

54. • Read the following praise kisses, and after each one is read, lift your hands in praise to Me together.

55. —Jesus, we lift our hands in praise to You, our eternal and everlasting Guide. You are always up ahead, guiding us down new paths of change and progress. Thank You for being our Good Shepherd‚ faithful to lead us to new pastures. We’re Your humble sheep, and we’ll gladly follow You wherever You lead.

56. —We can’t praise You enough, our wonderful Husband, for Your faithfulness to bring about change in our lives. Even though the path of change is a little rocky and difficult at times, the fruit of it is immeasurable, and always brings out the best in us. The changes You bring about keep us called out, fluid, and willing to flow on the currents of Your Spirit. It’s wonderful to know You’ll do whatever it takes to keep us close by Your side.

57. —Thank You for the faith You have in us. In spite of our human weaknesses and frailties, You see the good in us, and challenge us to become better disciples. You have a way of transforming even our mistakes into something good, and revolutionizing every area of our lives. We love You, Jesus—our King, our Master, our Husband. Your faith in us has seen us over the obstacles on our path, and given us the belief that we can make it with You by our side.

58. —You are worthy to be praised, precious Jesus. Your Name is on my lips, as I glorify and praise You for the goodness of Your mercies. You have transformed my life and made something out of this nothingness, this lifeless piece of clay. You sought and found me and made me Your bride. Me, this humble beggar, You made Your bride. Honor and glory are Yours, Jesus. Your unearthly and unconditional love leaves me speechless and in awe. I am Your humble servant.

59. —To You, our King, be the glory, for all goodness is perfected in You. We can try so hard in ourselves, but without You we are nothing. Our efforts are in vain without the breath of Your Spirit to bring them to life. Thank You that as we do Your bidding and follow as You lead, You are faithful to do Your part‚ those things we cannot do. You remake us, You facilitate change, You do the impossible for us. You are wonderful!

60. • Praise the Lord for the Custodians/Keepers He’s given for each of the boards, and for the unique gifts and skills He’s given to these Custodians, and ways in which they’re going to help strengthen these different pillars in each Home.

CGO: White Angel/Truth Keeper

CP: Frederick and Freya

FED: Herald

JT: DeCynder

PR: Acumon

CS: Ayin

61. • Praise Me for the specific keys that will make it possible for you to follow through on the commitments and changes that you will be making as a Home. (Examples: “Thank You, Lord‚ that we can claim the key of heavenly assistance to be able to implement these changes.” “We praise You for the key of dynamic results.” “We’re so thankful for the keys of flexibility that make it easier for us to do Your will,” etc.) [See “Specific Keys of Heaven” in Xns 38-43 for many more examples.]

62. • Praise Me for the person on your right. Thank Me for the qualities‚ talents‚ gifts, and characteristics that this person has that make him or her a necessary part of your winning team and Home.

63. • I have many names, so use these names to praise Me for My different attributes that enhance your lives. (Examples: “You are the Rock of Ages‚ steadfast, immovable.” “Thank You for being the Light of the World, that shines through the darkness and brings hope to our souls.” “You bring warmth and life to my life; You are the Sun chasing away all darkness,” etc.)

64. • Popcorn some of the blessings I’ve given you as a team, whether through miracles I’ve done for you through supply, the forming of your team (if you’re a new team), in your witnessing and outreach‚ your children, etc.

65. • Gather together in a circle, arms around each other‚ and sing the song, “We Are His Family.”

(Words for song “We Are His Family,” composed by Jerry Paladino.)

Chorus:

We are His Family, a nation of one blood. We are weak without each other, And we know we need His love.

We are His Family, that He’s called from every land. He’s made something out of nothing, Just to show His mighty Hand.

Verse 1:

And though the battles often rage,

And we don’t know what to do,

Our Savior’s mighty Hand,

Oh, will always see us through.

[Repeat chorus.]

Verse 2:

And we’ll stand as David’s Mighty Men

Until that glorious day, when the victory is won, And He wipes all our tears away.

[Repeat chorus twice.]

66. • Put on some slow Family music and have an appreciation dance. If there aren’t enough men to go around‚ girls can dance with girls. Sometime before the song is over, tell your partner something you appreciate about him or her.

67. • Talk about what life would be like without individuals in your Home, and what you’d miss about them. If you’re a smaller Home, you may be able to go around the circle and have a few people, or even everyone, say something about each person. If you’re a larger Home, you may just want to have each person say one or two things they would miss about the person to their left, or pick names out of a hat.

68. • Talk a bit about the ways I have united you as a Home during the last year. For example, you may feel generally closer to one another now than you did a year ago; or you may have really enjoyed a recent witnessing push that gave you more opportunity to work together as a team; or perhaps the arrival of more children to your Home has helped you generally have more of a One Wife vision. If you’re a new team, talk about the things that have happened in the last weeks that have helped you bond together and become a team.

69. • Each person (or just pick a few people if you are a large Home) pray a prayer of praise to Me, expressing a reason you are thankful to be in your current Home, something you like about it or appreciate.

70. • This is a good exercise for your greater marriage. Talk about each person, and what good quality or talent that person has that you would (or do) particularly appreciate in a spouse. For example, so-and-so may be adventuresome, and that’s something you feel you need in a close relationship. Or perhaps you are fond of the way he or she cooks. If you’re a smaller Home, you may each be able to say something about each person. But if you’re a larger Home, you could have a set number, like 3 to 5 people, say something about each person.

71. • Have each Home member bring a paper listing the main personal problems and obstacles they have that they feel negatively affect the unity of the Home. (These must be things you can personally do something about—not pointing the finger at someone else’s problem.) These papers can one at a time be cast into a bonfire (if you are in a safe, outdoor environment), or into a trash can in the middle of the room to be later burned or otherwise disposed of. When all the papers are disposed of, raise your hands and praise Me with all your heart that by faith I will help you to eliminate these obstacles and strengthen your unity.

72. • Take a minute to realize what the specific worth of each person’s particular role in the Home is. Go up to each one and say, “Without you, X wouldn’t get done,” filling in the specific details of each one’s ministry. For example, to a childcare worker you would say, “Without you, my child wouldn’t have learned to read.” Try to be as specific as possible. They don’t all have to relate personally to you—for example, you might say “our kids” instead of “my child”—but the more specific and detailed, the more it will be appreciated and give you an appreciation for each other.

73. • Tell each other what particular traits of the other you would really like to have. This doesn’t have to be everybody telling everybody else, but you could turn to the folks on your left and right and take a minute to think about what makes them really special, what you really admire about them, so much so that you wish you were more like them in that area—then tell them so! Example: “Mary, I really wish I had your happy countenance. I don’t smile enough, but you always seem to have a cheery look. I really admire that and wish I was more like that myself.”

74. • Pair up in twos and have prayer for one another. This doesn’t have to be heavy, heart-searching prayer time over NWOs and so on; it should just be your time to pray for your partner. Prayer is uniting. Just pair off somewhere semi-private and pour out your hearts to Me for the one you’re with. Ask Me to bless their health‚ their work, their spiritual life, to give them happiness and joy in their service for Me, success in their tasks‚ and a deeper relationship with Me. It can be a very touching experience to hear someone sincerely pray for you‚ even without specifics, calling down My power and blessing on your life. You could even do this for one song of a dance night. Put on a slow instrumental song‚ and let it be a time where each pair can pray for each other. Or have one song where the guys pray for their female dance partner, and then a second song where the girl prays for her partner.

75. • Before the meeting you could assign each person the name of one other person in the Home. You would then each bring a verse, quote, or key that you want to dedicate to the person whose name you got. Then at the meeting each one says who it’s for, and reads/claims their passage. It can be a promise for them‚ such as, “The keys will help you to …” etc. Or it can be something that reminds you of that person positively, such as, “A faithful man will abound with blessings‚” which you can dedicate to them.

76. • So much is sometimes made of past mistakes and times where you have all hurt each other, that you should counteract that by focusing on the good times and the positive memories. Have every person draw the name of another person in the meeting and share a positive memory that includes the person they drew. It doesn’t have to be unique to just the two of you, but something good, something fun to recall, and something that will leave you feeling uplifted. Think on the good things! It can be very interesting after doing this to realize that you have such a good history, so much happiness and success in your past, but the Enemy tries to bury it through disunity, strife‚ and bitterness. Some newer teams may not have as many shared memories, but you can always use something recent too, or if you’re that new, you can always praise Me for something (such as the Feast you’re attending right then and there) that will become a good memory in the future.

77. • A fun kind of word game to play, but that is also a uniting activity, is to choose a “Home metaphor” and build it together using all the various people in your Home, or the various departments and jobs in your Home. You could choose to compare your Home and work to a railroad, and try to see how that applies to you. Who is like the tracks? Who is like the team that lays the tracks nice and straight? Who is like the engine? Who is like the cargo cars, delivering the goods? Who is like the engineer that keeps it running? Who are the loaders and unloaders? Who is the stationmaster that keeps the trains on schedule? It’s like I compared the church to the body in My Word, with some being the feet, some the hands, some the head, etc. Try to pick something that has lots of integral parts, emphasizing that although all are unique, all are needed. Some may find choosing parts too difficult. If so, then just focus on choosing a united “theme” for your Home, such as, “We’re like a sailing ship charting unknown territory,” or “We’re like a colony of ants,” or whatever you all think suits you best. It’s just for fun, so don’t take it too seriously. Enjoy yourselves.

78. • Sing “We’ve Got a Lot to Be Thankful For,” filling in one verse for each person, suggested by the person to their left or right. Generally this would be just their name, plus one word to fit in with the rhythm of the song. Example: Ted is sitting next to Mary, who is sitting next to Jane. The song starts about Mary, so Ted would suggest the verse. Something like, “We’ve got Mary’s kindness to be thankful for.” Then Mary suggests a verse about Jane, then looping around to Jane suggesting a verse about Ted. The song probably won’t flow perfectly smoothly, but it’ll be a unique way to appreciate one another and praise Me all at once.

79. • Go around the room and have each person pray a paragraph-long prayer, thanking Me for how I took care of and brought you through a difficult or complicated situation in your life, and how that gives you faith that I’m going to continue to do the needed miracles and bring about the needed victories.

80. • Tell testimonies on a certain theme—such as miraculous supply, or personal victories, or protection, and praise and thank Me after each one, lifting your arms and praising Me for My power and the wonderful ways I manifest it on your behalf.

81. • Pass out “praise verses” and have each person adapt one or two, making it personal, but keeping it in a Biblical style. [See “A Prayer of Praise to God,” ML #3020‚ Lifelines 19, for a good list of verses.]

82. • Go around the room and have an A-B-C praise time, starting each sentence with “Jesus‚ You’re the greatest because…” (For example, “Jesus, You’re the greatest because You’re ALWAYS there for me!” “Jesus, You’re the greatest because You BASH the Enemy every time he tries to get me!” “Jesus, You’re the greatest because You CARE for me like no one else can,” etc.)

83. • Make four teams‚ and have each team fill in endings for one of these sentences. See who can come up with the most, and the most original endings‚ in five minutes.

  1. All praise to You‚ Jesus, for protecting us from…
  2. We praise You, dear Love, for loving us through…
  3. Thank You for showing Your power by…
  4. We worship and honor You because…

84. • First divide into teams. Then start with the line from the song (Psalm 34), “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together,” and have each team fill in the next two lines, telling something I’ve done for them personally. (For example, David said‚ “I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.”) Then read each “new verse” and sing it together.

85. • See how many things you can list in five minutes that you wouldn’t be able to do without Me. Then have someone pray a thankfulness prayer, thanking Me for My help and power.

86. • Act out the “Victory Praise Chant” song as a Home. Have a “narrator,” “God’s People,” “the enemies”—you can even dress up (even if just with towels and couch cushions or whatever is available)—make it memorable! (You may want to have printed copies of the words to the song and pass them around so that everyone can familiarize themselves with and understand all the words.) (See KAT #6, “Positive Praise.”)

87. • Write a “Praise/Declaration of Faith” poem to Jesus together as a Home, starting with the lines:

“We know that You will pull us through,

We praise You for how all these things You’ll do …”

And then list the miracles you need, the progress you’d like to see, the victories you need to win, and anything else you’d like to see Him do.

What the Future Holds, Part 1

Karen Zerby

More on the power to rise above and the keys!

By MariaMaria #570 CM 3349 4/01

Dearest Family,

1. You’re wonderful and we love you! Peter and I are praying for you daily! Thanks for your faith and loyalty, and for following the Words of the Lord. Because of your obedience and respect for the Word‚ and the vacuum you create as you drink it in‚ believe it and live it, the Lord keeps giving us more far-out insight and revelations.

2. After the last meeting of Birthday Feast 2001, I asked those in our Home and other WS units to hear from the Lord. He said: “I have much to say to Queen Maria and King Peter about the future—their personal future, the future of the Family, and the future of the Endtime events. I have revelations and new truths to give! I will give insight, vision, new goals, and revelations about what is to come. Turn your eyes to the future, My dear channels. Peer into My magic mirror and let Me pour forth all the precious rare jewels that I want to give.”

3. In this GN I have the privilege of presenting some of these marvelous messages. Lord willing, there will be more GNs of these prophecies published in the months to come. I would have liked to have gotten all these precious jewels to you more quickly‚ and I did consider “flooding” you with them in one GN after another, as they’re fascinating and offer such insight about our future. But, because I know you can only absorb so much and we have so many other important topics to address as well, the Lord has instead led me to spread this delicious banquet over a few months.

4. I’m sorry that we weren’t able to begin publishing these GNs sooner. We would have preferred to have gotten these out immediately after the Feast, but it wasn’t possible, since ­Peter and I left for the summit only days after the Feast and didn’t return home until the end of February. After our return we were occupied with timely matters in laying the groundwork to implement the board vision. I started work on this “What the Future Holds” material in mid–April and moved it along the pipeline of publication as quickly as possible. Thanks for your understanding about the delay in getting these to you. I pray you will enjoy them to the full!

5. The Lord said: “These GNs have many purposes—to instruct, inspire, give vision, teach about the Endtime, amplify on the promises and gifts I have given, and give My children faith for what is to come. These are magnificent messages that will cause the hearts of the children of David to rejoice! They are awe-inspiring and powerful. I don’t want to just give My brides momentary inspiration and a ‘good feeling’ as they partake of new information. They should not read these GNs simply to get the latest scoop. These are also to be a means of serious instruction. For these messages, while highly inspirational, are also very needed to prepare My brides for the future, to give them greater faith, to help remind them of the power to rise above and the keys of the Kingdom that are theirs, and to help them make those important gifts come to life in their hearts so they’ll put them to use on a daily ­basis.” (End of message from Jesus)

6. I know you’re all very busy‚ and a lot of Word comes out each month—so much so, that it might be difficult to keep up with it. In spite of that, we can’t let the reality of our new anointing, our enhanced gift of faith, the power to rise above, and the keys of the Kingdom escape us. This is just too important to forget or not focus on. The Lord knows that, so He’s helping us to stay reminded of these important spiritual gifts through the Word He’s pouring out. The onus is on each of us to study that Word and make it work in our lives.

7. Remember, the Lord said that we needed these additional spiritual aids and power that I just mentioned in order to continue to meet the demands that are ahead of us. These are to help us succeed. You’ve made the right choices overall and have passed whatever tests the Lord has brought into your life, and that’s why He could reward you in this magnificent way. But receiving the gifts is only the beginning; then you must do something with them. It’s my prayer that this series of GNs, as well as others that we hope to print fairly soon on practical application of the power to rise above, will help to motivate and instruct you to do just that!

See the Activation Angels!

8. This first message is significant not only because it reveals never-before-known information about the spirit world and crucial happenings related to our receiving the keys of the Kingdom, but also because it adds insight to our understanding of Endtime events and how the Devil is now preparing the world for the Antichrist.

9. (Vision: ) O Jesus, this is so beautiful! Please help me to describe clearly what I’m seeing. I see an incredible vision, which I seem to also be a part of. In front of me is a gorgeous angel, so magnificent‚ so awesome in appearance! He’s almost mesmerizing to look at! It’s as if he’s made out of gold, because he’s golden from head to foot, even his hair. And yet it’s not a hard, metallic, earthly form of gold, but a living, almost translucent‚ moving gold. His long hair is blowing behind him‚ not by some external element or breeze, but as if by a living, inborn force within him that causes it to move and flow and almost morph in shape behind him.

10. He’s standing in what appears to be a starting gate—almost as if he’s preparing for a race ahead. My impression is that I’m running in a relay race and he’s my next partner ahead of me, ready to take the baton from my hand, except he’s stretching out his hand toward me‚ inviting me to put my hand in his. Thank You Jesus! This is so beautiful. I feel like I’m in the presence of a very powerful angelic being. He’s unlike anything I’ve seen before.

11. As my range of vision expands‚ I see not only this angel, but three other similar beings. So there are four of them—and they’re all equally as beautiful, equally as golden, and equally as powerful and incredible in form. They’re all standing in line, at what appear to be supernatural starting gates.

12. This angel is now taking my hand and my arm, and I’m being propelled forward, as are other Family members alongside me and behind me. These angelic beings are escorting us into the future—the race before us! Thank You Jesus for this beautiful vision, this glimpse into Your spirit world! (End of vision.)

13. (Jesus speaking:) My love, wonder not at what you behold, for indeed you have seen what is a reality in My spirit at this monumental time in both history and in the spirit.

14. My four powerful angelic beings have been released for this new era ahead of you. Know that your years of light ahead are few, and they will be your golden years—years when you will reap the harvest as never before. Now at the dawn of this new millennium and era of action, I have broken the seal on this reserve of power—these golden ones, these previously harnessed angelic beings. Their time is now, and their destiny calls them with you, My brides, into the golden period of time ahead of you. Now their power can be released to aid each of My brides in all that the future holds for you!

15. With the ignition of this power, this activation of the keys to My Kingdom within your hands‚ My angelic beings are also set free and activated to help you, and in so doing fulfill their destiny. Their time is for this specific ­period in history‚ the final measure of time upon the Earth before great darkness engulfs humanity. Their form is as no other, for these four are the activation angels—golden beings of light, their level of power unprecedented and unchallenged, save by that of My archangels.

16. You, My brides, have now entered a new era, a new level in dedication and discipleship, a new level in power through what I have placed in your hands, and so have you opened a new level and echelon of power from My Heavenly resources to aid you. Be encouraged‚ My loves, and let your faith leap by what you see before you, for a never-before magnificence and awesome power has been released unto you!

17. Each angel, at the touch of your faith and request of your lips, will escort you into the future. They are in control of all that each of My brides will need in activating the power now placed in your hands. At the command of your faith they will work from the spirit world to perform miracles on your behalf. And because you, My faithful brides‚ will not use the power given you for your own purposes or glory but only as a means of reaching My lost ones and reaping the harvest before you, any impossibility before you will be bridged.

18. The first angel stands charge over the power to perform miracles of any form for My glory and in reaching those that are Mine. One of these is the gift of healing, which you now have. Be not afraid to use this power for My glory. You must access it in full faith and not be intimidated or fearful to possess this power‚ for you have it within your hands. This is My promise to you.

19. The second stands charge over the ability and power to accurately discern and reveal My secrets‚ including the events of the Last Days. Each step ahead of you will be revealed clearly, plainly, and in truth. There will be nothing withheld from you or kept from you, My beloved brides, that you have the need to see or know.

20. The third angel stands charge over the power to discern and see deeply into people’s hearts and spirits. He also has the power to inflame and activate and turn your hearts toward seeking out, winning, and feeding My lost as never before! He will escort you into a mighty Activated explosion around the world!

21. Finally, the fourth and last angel has been given charge over My chosen vessels—My Maria and Peter—upon whom much anointing will fall. Theirs will be a great calling, stirring and empower­ment, and a great stepping out. A great power will fill them as they don the mantle of leading My brides into the coming era.

22. You, My little ones, My Bride of the End, will have the power to perform great miracles for My glory! You, My ragged ones, will now stand up among My children as leaders in the Christian world. No longer will you hide behind the skirts of another, or be intimidated by the gifts and outward apparel of power and popularity worn by My other children of the churches. This is your day to shine, My loves, your day to come out from behind the curtains and reveal yourselves as My chosen and anointed ones to lead My saved and redeemed children through the darkness of night ahead.

23. This period of time will cause a great turning of the eyes of all My children unto you, My Bride. For now you will be revealed. You will step out from My bedchamber as those who carry the strength and anointing, the insight and discernment needed to stand up against the wrath of the Evil One and his coming kingdom on Earth.

24. These next years will see a great falling away from the faith among My children of the churches, of those who are nominally Mine. As I have released this new power into your hands, so the Evil One has released his minions, his arch­demons, whose power will cause a mighty dulling, a mighty blinding of the eyes of those who care not, and who have turned from Me and from seeking My truth. This will cause them to cleave as never before to themselves, to the ways of the world, and to the works of their own hands.

25. The Enemy has cunningly given them snippets of truth of what is to befall the Earth and mankind through the power and persuasion of the movie screen and his promotions. Yes, he has given the masses some truth, but all with the intent of muddying and tainting My full truth, so the masses come out confused and fearful, dulled and inoculated. He seeks to delay My plan, to discredit what is actually to be, to hinder and cause confusion‚ all in an attempt to cause disbelief and a mighty turning away from Me and My ways.

26. This inoculation will continue to the point that when these events actually befall the Earth, when the rise and possession of the Anti­christ takes place‚ the scales upon the eyes of the masses will be firmly in place. Even those amongst the churches will bicker and contend over what is truth and how to interpret the earthly turn of events in respect to biblical prophecy. This is where you, My Bride of the Endtime, will stand in the gap of this great dulling and confusion. This is your destiny, and this is the power given unto you.

27. The Enemy of your soul will actively continue with this plan of securing the masses and causing this great division upon the Earth, and causing a great hatred to well up in the hearts and minds of the masses against My true children of light. The lines will be clearly drawn; no more will there be those who sit in no man’s land, hovering between truth and untruth. So pre­pare yourselves for a mighty division—among My children of the churches and among the children of the world. These years will see a great falling away so that the ground may be ripe and ready for the Evil One to take possession of their lives and hearts.

28. In contrast to the great falling away on the part of the world, there will be a great rising above among you, My chosen Bride. I will give you great power to see you safely through the coming days! (End of message from Jesus.)

29. (Mama:) This should serve as another re­minder that the tremendous power and spirit helpers that the Lord is giving us are for a purpose! This is not a figment of our imagination. This is real. There are definite powerful promises attached to the keys of the Kingdom, and these new activated angels have a specific mission. Please ask the Lord to open your eyes to the spirit world so you can appreciate how truly magnificent the Lord’s plan is‚ which should increase your motivation to use the power at your disposal.

30. He’s giving us these awesome gifts because we need them. We’re entering a new level in dedication and discipleship; we will face bigger battles‚ stronger foes in the spirit world, and therefore the Lord has equipped us with a new level of power and released this new echelon of Heavenly beings to aid us. Several specific gifts come with the release of these four activated angels: (1) the ability to perform miracles, (2) discernment to see and understand the Lord’s secrets, including the unfolding of Endtime events, (3) a guide to escort us into a worldwide witnessing and Activated explosion, and (4) a new spirit being who has been given charge over Peter and me.

31. There are indications in this message that the Family will gain greater influence as leaders in the Christian world, that we will be more recognized and perform great miracles. Apparently we will shine the Lord’s light not only to the lost, but also to other believers, who will acknowledge our special anointing and look to us for guidance, especially in the darkest times ahead. Of course‚ the full meaning of this is still veiled, but the Lord has given other clues as to how this will be fulfilled. As you read this and the GNs in this series‚ you’ll see things fall into place a bit more.

32. Understanding the future is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Some people derive great joy from doing puzzles, and the more pieces there are and the more challenging and difficult the puzzle, the more they seem to like it. Some puzzles have up to 5,000 or 10,000 pieces, and there are even three–dimensional ones and ones that are two-sided. Well‚ I’m not a puzzle person, since my eyes could never take the strain, but I sure love the Lord’s puzzles. I’m fascinated by all the many little pieces and how they fit together.

33. Just as you might see a group of people huddled around a big table covered in thou­sands of tiny puzzle pieces, studying intently the various shapes, and cheering each time another piece is safely tucked into its place, so should we be with the Lord’s spiritual puzzles. We can’t expect to just toss the pieces around carelessly and hope they’ll fall into place, thus completing the whole picture rather effortlessly. We need to study and think and pray about all the fine details, and look for clues, and then we’ll find the picture becoming clearer all the time. If we look at it like that, it’s a challenge. It’s fun. It’s not laborious study, but it’s an adventure.

The Ministry of Miracles

34. Here’s another major clue about what our future will be like and how the Lord will thrust us, the Family, into the limelight of fame, popularity and publicity.

35. (Jesus speaking: ) I wish to enlarge your vision now, My children of David, regarding the purpose of these gifts—the power to rise above and the keys of the Kingdom. I am a wise investor, as you well know. I give generously‚ freely, and it gives Me pleasure to give to you. But I also give with a purpose and expect great returns for My gifts. I do this not only to be efficient and to obtain the progress and results that I know are needed, but also to challenge you to stretch yourselves to greater works. I know it makes you happy and you feel more fulfilled when you’re put to the test to do great things, accomplish what seems to be impossible, and conquer mountains that have hitherto been unscaled.

36. I want you to know what is to come, both so you can look forward to it with anticipation and so you can prepare. When you know the future, then you look for the signs and you have more faith to take hold of the power, harness the spirit, bring forth the fruit, and work the miracles. When you’re commissioned with an official charge, then you don’t feel that you’re “acting proud,” taking matters into your own hands, or exercising yourselves in things that are too high for you. Instead, when you see circumstances unfold, I am able to speak to you and show you what to do. You don’t doubt, wonder or waver, but you grab the opportunity tenaciously and you run with it! You say to yourself‚ “This is it! He told me this would happen! I’ll do it!”

37. I have promised that you would do greater works than My early disciples. I went so far as to say that greater works than I did‚ you will do. You’ve heard that so many times that it’s become almost a cliché. It has somewhat lost its meaning for you. But I want to make it clearer what I mean by that.

38. You have already entered the era of greater miracles. You’ve begun your journey to greater mir­acles, and there has already been a manifestation of greater miracles in some ways. But overall, many of those “greater miracles” up until this time have been hidden or partially hidden. They’ve been miracles of fuller yielded­ness, more faith, an increased vision for witness­ing, greater initiative, more consistent humility, the desire to ask Me everything. These are great miracles that have taken place deep in the inner man of each of you.

39. This was all very necessary preparation for the gifts I have now bestowed upon you, for each of you was tried and tested. Each of you had your personal battles that showed the depth of your love for Me‚ and the distance you’re willing to go for the sake of winning the world. This show of desire for Me and your humility to be made into the vessel of My choosing were what paved the way for the very awesome new gifts that you now possess.

40. But that’s only the beginning—there’s so much more! You now only see the tip of the iceberg, but the totality of this power will be made visible for all to see, and then you will come into the full realization of what this means.

41. You now enter a time in which My power in you will be manifested in a way that will be visible to each other and to the world. You’ve proven yourself worthy through your humility and yieldedness, and I can now reward you with the gifts and manifestations of My Spirit that are showy, magnificent, and obviously miraculous.

42. When people think of the works that I performed during My time on Earth, they don’t normally think of the power of My love, forgiveness‚ or tenderness. They don’t normally think of My deep connection with My Father or of My ability to hear His voice. They don’t think of the hours I spent alone in silent prayer and meditation. They don’t normally think of the private crises of faith that I had in which I made the right decisions and overcame the Evil One.

43. No‚ the great “works” that people know and that have been publicized over and over are the fantastic demonstrations of supernatural power. Mankind remembers the miracles I performed that were undeniable miracles in the eyes of carnal‚ child­like man. I speak of such things as turning the water into wine, walking on water, healing the sick, casting out devils, causing the lame to walk, restoring sight and hearing, and even raising the dead. These are the miracles that are taught to children, pictured in theater and movies, and some of them are events that have become household words even for un­believers.

44. If the people who lived in My time needed such signs of My divinity, how much more do the people of today and the Last Days need such signs and wonders? The lost of today are often skeptical, un­believing, and deeply deceived by the Enemy of their souls. They’re so very far from the truths of My Spirit, and they’re immune to the more conventional ways of preaching the message because they’ve hardened their hearts, they’re past understanding, and they’re in total darkness. Therefore‚ you, My miracle workers of the End, will have to resort to other means to get their attention, and you will have to offer them “proof” that cannot be denied. This proof will be in the working of miracles.

45. You will do the same type of miracles that I did, only more and greater. There will be more of you performing such miracles‚ and the news of such events will draw great publicity and attention.

46. I know that many of you are puzzled in your hearts and troubled in your spirits, not knowing what this means. You feel the weight of these words, as if it were something you had to do yourselves. But as I explain more, you will see that this transition to greater obvious mir­acles will come naturally, and those who have the faith will know they have the faith. They will simply reach up and receive the anointing, and then step by step in My power, not their own, they will accomplish that which I have put on their hearts.

47. The days of these miracles is not in the far-distant future, sometime when you know for sure you’re in the Endtime and you’re facing the Antichrist and his forces. Most of you have that mindset. You believe that you—or at least someone from the Family—will perform great miracles when you’re sure the Antichrist is in power. You’ve ascribed that power and anointing, and even the need for such acts, to the last years, the Great Tribulation. But I want to correct your perception of this, for your under­standing of the timing is not right; this ministry of miracles will begin much earlier.

48. As you have needed to grow in the ­hidden gifts and in the performance of hidden miracles such as yieldedness, prayerfulness, hearing My voice, loving Me intimately, maintaining constant com­muni­­ca­tion with Me, feeling My presence at all times, doing the humble thing—does it not also stand to reason that you will also need to grow in the performance of obvious mag­nificent miracles? Now is the time when I will begin to hone those gifts of doing miracles‚ and to speak to your hearts about My desire for you to receive such gifts.

49. Now‚ beginning today, I will enhance the gifts of My Spirit within you and you will see raised up from among you those who will perform miracles of healing, deliverance, casting out devils, foretelling the future, and eventually even raising the dead and calling down fire from Heaven. There will be those of you who will begin to step out by faith to exercise such gifts, for you will feel an undeniable pull on your heart, and the gift of faith that I have loosed within you will enable you to reach up and pull down miracles from Heaven.

50. There will be publicity and large gather­ings. News will spread around the world. Some of you will become famous, and others infamous. These obvious miracles will cause no small stir; they will not be done in a corner. Of course, those who choose to lay hold on this power will begin with small steps, but their faith will grow. In My time, if they stay yielded, humble, and willing, there will be a great hush across the land, as many unbelievers will stand in awe of the power they see, and they will be converted.

51. This will be a key factor in the increase of the church, for those who see such miracles will follow after you—some for the loaves and fishes, but many out of sincere faith and a desire to love Me. This will also be a key factor in the increase of finances, for there will be those who are healed who will give all of their worldly possessions in simple thanksgiving. They will cast their wealth at your feet and make available to you whatever you need. They will know that their own treasures of this world are as dung compared to what you have, and they will be willing to count it all as loss, just to be in your presence and under your shadow.

52. I know this sounds fantastic, My loves. This sounds too big, too dramatic. This is a break from the previous ministry of the Family, whose greatest miracles have been saved souls and changed lives. Most of your miracle working thus far has been unappreciated by the world, because it has been rather unseen by the casual observer. Few people under­stand the awesome power at work and the great miracle it is when someone receives Me‚ and their heart, mind‚ out­look and mindset are changed as a result. In the days to come, that type of hidden miracle will not be enough, for the unbelievers seek a sign.

53. You are now ready, My loves, and this is the beginning of the obvious manifestations of My power within you, the giving of signs‚ the working of greater miracles. I have already begun to speak to your hearts‚ you whom I wish to raise up as My modern-day miracle workers. Your ranks will increase in the future, for all My dedicated children of David who have the keys of the Kingdom have the power to perform miracles, according to the need, and all will manifest this power to varying degrees in the future, as the need arises. But for now I speak to you and call you who have already had dreams and received personal messages from Me and your spirit helpers. You have even had others—both within the Family and outsiders—say things that have confirmed this secret leading that I have put within your heart. Now I will begin to put you in situations and engineer circumstances that will challenge your faith. You will discover that there will be times when the door will open for you to make known your gift. The choice will be yours to follow through on such opportunities, according to your faith.

54. I ask you, however, to please follow through. Reach up, challenge Me, put Me to the test! When there’s an opportunity to perform a miracle for My glory‚ don’t hesitate or worry that it might not work, or that you might be embarrassed, or that My reputation will be marred. That’s why I’m making it clear to you that now is the time to begin your public ministry, because I want these words to turn the key‚ to activate this sector of your gift of enhanced faith, so that you won’t fail by hesitating or turning away from the need.

55. This is new and different, and it will be hard for you to get used to in many ways. You will first of all feel embarrassed in front of other Family members, because up until this time there have been few showy miracles. You will feel on the spot. Also, the public acclaim will be unnerving. You’re used to working as a team, promoting the body, the overall Family, and the Word. You won’t feel comfortable being singled out, or being needed individually or even lifted up before the masses. But as you seek Me and stay very, very close to Me, I will guide you through these troublous beginnings and give you peace. You will gain the faith you need by knowing that you’re in My will, and that these happenings are coming about in My time.

56. Of course, in My eyes the showy gifts are not any greater than the hidden gifts. It’s not that those who have the gift to perform great obvious miracles are of greater value to My Kingdom, for you know that you are all one body. I know that you have generally resisted even the thought of such a ministry, and have resisted developing such gifts, because you didn’t want to be seen to be lifted up above others, to be sought out, or to receive the praise of man. I under­stand this, and I don’t hold this against you. There has been no loss to the Kingdom be­cause of these hesitations, for it was not My time. I needed to build a much stronger foundation in the key pillars of this ministry—hearing from Me, loving Me intimately, and doing the humble thing.

57. But now it is My time, and if those of you who I wish to raise up refuse to accept the calling, or you hide your light under a bushel and refuse to let it be activated, then I will raise up others. I will continue to call and call until I have found those within the children of David who are humble enough and desperate enough to obey Me. If I were not able to find channels and vessels for these showy greater miracles, then that would indeed be a great loss to the Family, for this is an integral part of My plan. This is necessary. It’s not just a “nice thing” to win many to Me; it’s crucial to the development and progress of the era of action, for it will be a key to the Family’s growth and increased support.

58. Now is the time that you will begin to learn to do miracles for all to see, even greater miracles than My disciples did, or than I did. Now that promise will begin to be fulfilled. Those of you who have heard My call to this ministry of miracles in your hearts, please don’t turn Me away. Please don’t make this gift of no effect by unbelief or by minimizing My still, small voice in your heart, or the words I have given you in proph­ecy, or the small signs you have seen previously. Please let Me live and work in you. Let Me fulfill My plan. Let Me use you in this way. Let Me show you personally how I wish to prove‚ through you, that nothing is impossible to him who believes. (End of message from Jesus)

59. (Mama:) Are you chosen to be one of the Lord’s modern-day miracle workers? The Lord has already begun to speak to the hearts of those of you who He wants to raise up for this ministry of miracles. He said that you have already had dreams and received prophecies about it. And some of you have even had ­others—both within the Family and outsiders—say things that have confirmed this secret leading that the Lord has put in your heart. If this is a “secret leading,” it’s obvious that you’ve not acted on it much; you’ve kept it to yourself and you’ve pondered these things in your heart. That’s understandable and fine, because it wasn’t the Lord’s time. But now it’s time to begin to do something with the gift of working miracles that the Lord has given you.

60. This will be a great challenge‚ no doubt, but the Lord comforted you, saying: “Those who have the faith will know they have the faith. … There will be those of you who will begin to step out by faith to exercise such gifts, for you will feel an undeniable pull on your heart, and the gift of faith that I have loosed within you will enable you to reach up and pull down miracles from Heaven.”

61. If you have this faith, if you know the Lord is calling you to what He describes as this public showy ministry of miracles‚ don’t be embarrassed. No one is going to look at you and think, “Wow‚ that guy is super proud” or “He’s really gone off his rocker!” This is something the Lord is doing, and doing now! If you’re part of the fulfillment of this promise, more power to you! Go for it! Try it!

62. Take note that the Lord said: “Now I will begin to put you in situations and engineer circum­stances that will challenge your faith. You will dis­cover that there will be times when the door will open for you to make known your gift. The choice will be yours to follow through on such opportunities‚ according to your faith.

63. “I ask you, however, to please follow through. Reach up, challenge Me, put Me to the test! When there’s an opportunity to perform a miracle for My glory, don’t hesitate or worry that it might not work, or that you might be embarrassed, or that My reputation will be marred. That’s why I’m making it clear to you that now is the time to begin your public ministry, because I want these words to turn the key, to activate this sector of your gift of enhanced faith, so that you won’t fail by hesitating or turning away from the need.”

64. It will be a test of faith, that’s for sure! You’ll feel wobbly and unprepared. But you can be comforted to remember that when Jesus performed His first miracle of turning the water into wine, He didn’t feel ready either. You can read His personal account of that in “The Keys to the Kingdom” (ML #3318:15–17, GN 922). But to summarize: He felt unprepared‚ and even told His mother that it wasn’t His time. He said, “I was on the spot, I had to stretch My faith, and a miracle took place that day. The Spirit of My Father moved in Me, convicting My heart, and I’m thankful I didn’t brush it aside. The need was there, and it was, in fact, My time.”

65. It wasn’t time for this ministry in the Family before now, because the Lord needed to strengthen what He calls the “the key pillars of this ministry,” which are hearing from Him, loving Him intimately, and doing the humble thing. It all works together—the gift of prophecy, receiving His seeds, and being humble. Of course, this ministry can’t be taken lightly, and you who are called to perform miracles will need to be very much in the fear of the Lord to stay close to Him and obedient and humble. There will undoubtedly be much to learn as this unfolds, but for now, the main thing the Lord wants you to see is that now is the time. The Lord is now going to raise up those of you who have the gift of the Holy Spirit of the working of miracles. If you are called‚ but you refuse, He will call someone else, and He’ll keep calling and calling until His will is accomplished.

66. This is not just a radical new idea‚ something different or something I’ve chosen to publish to add some “spice” to the GNs. This is a change that is supposed to happen! The Lord said: “I will continue to call and call until I have found those within the children of David who are humble enough and desperate enough to obey Me. … this is an integral part of My plan. This is necessary. It’s not just a ‘nice thing’ to win many to Me; it’s crucial to the development and progress of the era of action, for it will be a key to the Family’s growth and increased support.”

67. This is an integral part of the Lord’s plan. Synonyms for the word integral are: vital, indispens­able, important, crucial, critical, needed and necessary. Get it?

68. I want to hear from those of you who are called to this ministry. Please write me about your feelings and experiences; communicate your ques­tions, battles or lessons. Testify of the miracles our wonder-working Husband does. We need to start working hard to learn all we can, and ask the questions we need counsel on‚ and publish the further instruction needed to make this miracle ministry happen!

69. It’s the Lord’s will. Now is the time! I want to hear from you who have the faith to say yes to the Lord’s still, small voice. I want to see you stepping out‚ doing it‚ taking up the challenge and trusting the Lord. We won’t be disappointed. The Lord will perform the miracles; He will uphold His Own reputation. He only needs the vessels. Is He calling you?

Go Activated and Reap!

70. Those of you who are Endtime buffs and frontline fighters will find that this next mess­age will surely turn your key.

71. (Jesus speaking: ) There is great rejoicing in Heaven, for the Family Feast 2001 has kicked off the Endtime events that will propel you, My children, and the world, into a time that they have never known before. This will be the great time of reaping that your Father David has spoken of, that the prophets have dreamed of‚ and that you have long awaited but have not seen materialize before your eyes. It will come now. It is at the doors, and you will see it, I promise. You will see it physically, tangibly‚ visibly, and you will wonder with great joy and amazement.

72. Fear not to receive these words, for they are true and perfect. You have opened yourselves to Me to receive My power and Endtime anointing through the gift of faith, rising above and believing that nothing is impossible to you with My strength and power, so is it not fitting that the Endtime events should now begin to come to pass, and that the events which I’ve been holding back I will now let swing into full motion? But you still have time, My darlings. I’m not setting the final seven years before you just yet, because you have a great time of reaping and of calling all men and nations to repent­ance before the End comes.

73. Once the End comes, things will get very confusing, for the Antichrist will perform many signs and wonders of his own on the world stage, and people will lose their love for Me and fear of Me. Then people will not be as receptive to your message and to your witness. But now is the time when the world is ripe and ready for your reaping—while the world is still in the midst of suffering and misery, and has not yet been pulled together by the Antichrist. So sow the seeds of My love and salvation now while you still can, for when the Antichrist takes the stage, the people of the world will not be as receptive. Their eyes will be dulled and their hearts will be deceived by his words and works, and multitudes will turn to him.

74. You are entering a time of great reaping and witness. You will be a testimony to all nations, and that which you would accomplish in the arena of winning the world you must do now. It’s time to focus outward as never before and to reap the harvest, to reach the world, to love the sheep, to feed them‚ to strengthen the national churches, to challenge the world to make a decision, to make disciples out of all nations‚ for within this time period will be the final great harvest of My Endtime soldiers. Those who are reaped during this time will be among those who will go through the last seven years, who will endure Great Tribulation and survive until the very End—the day when I come to rapture My Own.

75. Can you not see the signs of the times? What do you think these tremendous gifts are being given to you for? It’s so you can do the work needed in half the time. It’s so you can reap the harvest and reach the world, and spare not in doing so. It’s so you can be faithful, loyal‚ and steadfast, and not be stuck behind any mountains or obstacles that you deem too impossible to be conquered. There will be no alps to you, therefore the whole world can be reached, and all will hear of My Name and of the gospel of salvation. Though each one may not hear of it personally from you, each one will hear through one, or another one, or another one. The mess­age will be spread far and wide, from nation to nation, people to people, city to city, and it will surpass your wildest dreams!

76. So cling tightly to this gift of faith, and brace yourselves for the Endtime. Brace yourselves for the new thrust into which I place you. I set you in position for your mission! You must be active, alive, activated, and energized in ­order to fulfill that which I commission you to do. There is a great work to accomplish, and it involves each of you.

77. This is the time in history when I shine My light of anointing and great power upon My queen and king of the End. They will rise up with great stature and power like you have not seen. Those of you who live closely with them, work with them, and have seen the anointing that I have placed upon them until this time will marvel at the increased anointing, and even the different and changing anointing that I will now place on their shoulders. They will have a new anointing‚ a new mantle‚ a new spirit from My throne‚ new spirit helpers, and greater understanding and wisdom.

78. They will have, first and foremost, a clear and fresh vision and foresight into the future, so that they can see the direction in which I am leading them, the Family, and even the world. They will foresee what I am bringing upon the world. They will know in advance, and they will testify of it to you, My children, who will in turn broadcast it to the world.

79. You will be My prophets and prophetesses of joy and doom both, bringing the mess­age of salvation to the world, and the message of impending doom to those who are not willing to receive Me, who mock Me and spurn My message and My messengers, who shun My love and who turn to false gods and vain idols, who love themselves more than they love Me. The coming days will be a time of My message flooding the Earth, a great reaping through the tools I have given you. You will see that the promises I have made to you, My children‚ will be abundantly fulfilled in every way, in every sphere, in every imagination. There will not be one stone left unturned in the fulfillment of My promises to you, My darling Endtime brides.

80. I will prepare you in every way for that which will come upon the world—first by making you bright and shining witnesses to the nations‚ so that you can herald the joy of My salvation and love to the Earth, followed by the more serious warnings of the end of the world as the time approaches and men harden their hearts.

81. So embrace this calling and this ministry that I set before you. Do the work in the fields now that I have called you to. Witness, win, plant the seeds, reap the harvest, and make disciples of all nations, for the End will soon come. (End of message from Jesus.)

82. (Mama: ) We are entering a time of great reaping. The point is self-explanatory. What is reaping but witnessing‚ winning, and building a church of believers!

83. We are not yet in the last seven years, but we are warned to take full advantage of this time because—and this has not been explained so clearly before—the lost will not be as interested in our message during the reign of the Antichrist as they are now. It will be more difficult then to get their attention, because they will be fascinated by the AC’s works.

84. One thing that the Enemy will do to make this message less effective is to try to get you to think, “Yeah, yeah. I’ve heard this before.” Some of you young people even doubt that we’re living in the time of the End. That’s sad, because if you feel that way, this message won’t move you to much action. And if that’s the case, too bad for you, too bad for the Family, and too bad for the lost! Because one of these days we’ll see hard, irrefutable evidence that this message is true, and then you’ll be sorry for your doubting. You’ll be sorry for your lack of witnessing and reaping. You’ll be sorry that, because of your unbelief‚ you won’t receive the reward you could have received.

85. To believe this word from the Lord is a personal decision. What you do about it will be according to your personal conviction and choice. Each of you will have to decide how this will affect your priorities, how you spend your time, how desperate you are when you go out witnessing, and how much you push the Activated program. Peter and I can’t make you believe and obey. All we can do is give you the message. But remember, the Lord will hold you accountable. If it’s hard for you to believe this, please ask the Lord yourself. I know He’s so interested in convincing you about the shortness of time that He’ll personally answer any question you have and He’ll even cause things to happen around you that will confirm His truth!

Something Special

For You Young People

86. The following message was received by a YA in our Home who is fairly new to our staff. She obviously understands the questions that you young people face, having spent her whole life on various mission fields‚ and I believe that’s why the Lord chose to give this particular mess­age through her.

87. Please understand that I gave no intro­ductory message to those who received these messages after the Feast except what you read earlier in paragraph 2. I only shared the general instruction from the Lord about what He wanted to give. So the recurring themes that run throughout many of these prophecies certainly serve as confirmations.

88. (Jesus speaking:) You will be thrust into the headlines. You’ve experienced media cover­age be­fore, and many people have heard of you, but in the near future you will become more famous than ever. You’ll have more publicity than you’ve ever had. You think the Jonas ministry is super-wow and he’s getting so famous, but that is as a drop in the bucket compared to what’s coming, so hold on tight!

89. To you young people who’ve been holding on for so long‚ and you just don’t know if you can make it another day‚ I tell you to hurry up and brush up on all your Bible classes, your Family doctrine classes, and get ready to fulfill the promises I gave about your generation through your Father David. I know you find these things hard to believe, and you’ve been preparing for this great and mighty day your whole lives. But I say unto you now, rejoice, for your day is at hand!

90. I’ve promised that I would make you a financial power, and you’ve wondered how on earth that could possibly be so, when you’re now struggling to make ends meet. But I say that as the world hears your message, you will make many new friends and find that there are plenty of people who want to donate to your worthy cause. Yes, your enemies will try to stir up trouble, but I will confound them and bring them to naught, and they will be defeated.

91. Activated will take off like never before, and will become a household word. This is the time of great fruitfulness before the storm, the last harvest. I’ve told you before that you have no idea how far Activated is going to go; it is the Gospel that will be preached unto all nations before the End comes.

92. So hang on to your hats! This is your reward for hanging on through many years of dishwashing, caring for children, singing, performing, personal witnessing, doing your best to help your Homes make progress, hitting the streets to bring in the daily needed finances, and holding on despite all the battles and the things of this world that the Enemy has been tempting you with.

93. You will see just how short time really is! You’ll no longer wonder if you’re really living in the Last Days, for it will become a reality to each of you‚ no matter where you are.

94. Well done, I say to you‚ for you have believed My promises of the great things I have in store for you, and now you will see them come to pass before your very eyes! You’re not going to have to wait years to be the teachers you were ordained to be; you only have days left. So pull out those Bibles, those MO letters, those memory books, and review! Step out to practice your teaching skills with your present sheep, because before you know it you’re going to need all that Word that you’ve been storing in your heart these many years. You’re going to be so thankful for every class you had, and for all the adults who took the time to teach you and train you.

95. And to My beloved veteran first generation, don’t think you won’t be included in the action! You too will be thrilled through and through to see My promises coming to pass before your very eyes, and to see these young ones shine whom you have trained and poured into these many years, even though many times you couldn’t possibly see how they could turn out to be My warriors of the End. This will be the fulfillment of what your Father David prophesied.

96. Each of you will see change and pro­g­ress in your lives. The “action” of the era of action will become more obvious. It’s already begun, it’s started, but nothing has happened yet compared to what’s coming—and not in the very distant future, but soon! Don’t be afraid to minister to the top, to reach the influential, for I will raise up many new kings, and the finances will begin to flow in.

97. So don’t delay! Expect miracles today, and in My Name you’ll get them! You don’t quite yet fathom what it means that My power has been released to you, but you will. Grab hold of My promises today. Put Me on the spot. In My Word it says, “Concerning the works of My hands, command thou Me.” Do this and you will see the miracles you’ve heard of all your lives come to pass. You will stand in awe and wonder, and you will reap the results of your holding on.

98. I love you eternally, My dear ones, and I thank you for being willing to be nothing, and to serve and give your lives to Me. Now that you’ve humbled yourselves in My sight, I will exalt you. I will show you off to the world as My Bride, and they will marvel, as they did with Peter and John, and know that you have been with Me. Believe and receive My promises to you, for the time has come. (End of message from Jesus.)

More Laborers!

99. (Mama:) With all this reaping, teaching and disciple winning, you’re probably getting the drift that we need more laborers! There will be new disciples for sure—both live-ins and live–out members. But I think you’ll be especially thrilled with this next insight from the Lord, because not only does it show that some of the fellow laborers that we’ll gain will have already received a lot of input and training, but they are people who are very dear to our hearts!

100. (Jesus speaking: ) Many who have departed from your folds will return once again. You will see the beginnings of a great harvest in many ways, including the harvest of My ex-member children returning. There will be many, young and old, who have turned aside from My highest will in their lives and from following Me closely‚ but who, as the days grow darker, will be humbled enough to return.

101. Many already desire to return to the folds of David and Maria, feeling the emptiness and misery of their lives out in the System; and yet they are bound by pride. Their pride and their fear of man keep them from humbling themselves and from admitting that they’re unhappy and empty in spirit. But I will work on their pride. I will work in the lives of those who I wish to bring back to My service. I will put the squeeze and the pressure on. I will humble them, even break them and crush them if need be, and cause them to be ready to humble themselves under My mighty hand and be My yielded brides once again.

102. These who return will serve in different capacities. Some will desire to return to full-time service. Others will join your ranks as Fellow members or as live-outs or outside wit­nessers. But there will indeed be a great reaping of My ex-member brides—those who have been living only for themselves, but in whose hearts I will rekindle a desire to be of service to mankind and to reach others with My love.

103. As the days grow darker, those who know My words of truth will see the things coming to pass that My prophets have foretold, and they will feel the conviction of My Spirit in their hearts. They will feel and know that the words that I spoke were true, and that it’s not true that “all things continue as they were.” They will see through the veneer of the System and the sugar coating with which Satan has wrapped his pill of worldliness and carnal thinking—the pill which so many of your youth have swallowed, and in thinking they were being enlightened, brought great spiritual blindness upon themselves.

104. My powerful and mighty wave of anointing through My Family, with which you will reach the world and cover the corners of the globe with My message, will also touch on the shores of the hearts of these, My wayward brides. I will stir them with the warmth of My salty, spicy ocean. They will remember the freshness, the freedom, and see the depth of truth contained in My Words‚ and they will want to return to My service, at least in some measure.

105. Prepare yourselves for an influx of returning wayward brides‚ those who were meant to be Mine and serve Me, but whose hearts were distracted or filled with other things‚ and who therefore pulled away from Me and now feel the loss. Prepare to reintegrate those who have been very weakened, but who will see the truth and desire to fight for it by your side once again. It may take some time for some to be strengthened enough to be a blessing to ­others, and even those who return may not all become full-time elite troops, but they will become part of your greater extended Family membership—a part of My push within the Family to teach others to teach others.

106. This harvest of returning former members will not be the greatest harvest of your future in this era of action. The greatest and most spectacular harvest will be that of the many lost souls who will find Me through you, and specifically through the Activated program and the Family’s renewed determination to spread the message and feed My sheep. Yet this harvest of your own who return—both young and old—will be great and dramatic in its own way, for it will be the fruit of your prayers.

107. So many have labored and will continue to labor diligently in prayer for the souls of those who have strayed—their loved ones, children, mates, friends—and those prayers have not been and will not be in vain. It is the era of action‚ and specifically of action through prayer. Therefore pray them through.

108. I have said that you must pray the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth laborers into His harvest. I have many laborers chosen to send into My harvest. Many of these are “new” laborers, in the sense that they either don’t yet know Me or at least have not labored in My service. Yet some of them are to be “recycled” laborers, meaning those who have already known My service and know much of My Word, but who have pulled away from Me, whether many years ago or in recent years. There are many whose spark I will re-ignite, whose eyes I will open‚ whose spirits I will cause to burn with the desire to break free from the chains of pride and selfishness, and launch out once again to live by faith and to serve Me and others.

109. Pray them in! Fight for them in prayer! This is one part of the great harvest of the future. This is a part of the era of action. This is a part of the Activated vision. This is a part of feeding My sheep. This is a part of the Last Days. For you do indeed enter the Last Days. These are not the seven years of the Antichrist’s reign, but the time immediately preceding it. This marks the time in which things in the world will go from bad to worse, until they realize that they need a superman, and their hearts and minds and governments and pocketbooks are prepared to blindly follow anyone who appears to have the strength to bring about solutions.

110. So many are becoming desensitized to the truth; but meanwhile others are seeing the signs of the times. Even if they don’t know what they’re seeing, they know that these times are significant, and they’re looking for those who can answer their questions. Even My children without‚ the young and old who have left off following Me, will find those who will seek them out‚ feeling the spirit and knowledge within them, and desiring that they would teach them and help them find their way.

111. Seeing this hunger and vacuum in the world will be what causes some to return to Me. They will see that the light and spirit within them, as little as it may be, is desperately needed in the world as the days grow darker, and they will long to be filled with more of this truth and knowledge and spirit, for their own sake and the sake of others. It is coming. The Last Days are coming. A great reaping is coming. A wave of those who will return to Me is coming. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

112. (Mama:) Please pray these dear brethren back into the Lord’s service. These who have left us are not just “former members”; they’re someone’s mate, friend, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend‚ child. We need them—and they need us and the Word of the Lord! So please begin to prepare for this influx of disciples as the Lord instructs us‚ and let’s make a way for these important and needed laborers to fight this last great battle by our sides!

A Gift for the Weak

113. The Lord has said such amazing things about these new gifts He’s given us and our increased faith, that I wouldn’t be surprised if quite a few of you feel overwhelmed. And if you feel discouraged and weak in yourself, it could test and try your faith that this is really for you. While you might believe in the message in principle‚ and you can see the need for these new spiritual powers and gifts, you might think you’re way too weak to exercise your faith in the face of any really big battles. You might feel afraid that you’re not going to be strong enough‚ that you’ll fail, that you won’t have the faith you should. If you feel that way, this next message is perfect for you!

114. (Jesus speaking:) This gift of faith isn’t for the strong; it’s for the weak—those who feel incapable, at the end of their rope, weak in themselves, and without the power‚ know-how, or talents to make it. This is a necessary gift of My love for you, My precious, faithful brides. This gift will be manifested in great ways in those who have no strength in themselves, who feel unworthy—the humble‚ the meek, the weak—because you will lean completely on Me and trust in My power to deliver each time.

115. Those who trust, who suck, who believe, who expect My promises to be fulfilled, will see miracles of faith. My Word will be fulfilled, when I say I’ve chosen the weak to confound the mighty, the meek to inherit My promises, the unlearned to astonish the nations! I will do all that I’ve spoken to you this day. I will use you greatly to do things you’re not even capable of in the flesh, but that I can and will do through you—in your personal lives, your ministries, and your witness to the world. As you exercise this gift of faith, step out on the water of My promises and you’ll see things change before your eyes.

116. This is an active gift—a living‚ pulsating‚ spiritual gift. As you walk by faith, the doors will open before you, the waters of difficulty will part, the mountain of impossibility will be scaled. I have faith in you, I trust you, and I know that you’ll grow spiritually with this gift, as you believe with all your heart. I know your fear is that you won’t believe enough, that you’ll somehow doubt, question, or minimize the power of this gift through your own lack of belief. But just trust Me, for I’ve given you a believing heart. You don’t have to feel anything, or feel your belief; simply trust that I’m causing it to happen in your life as you walk by faith.

117. You’ll see My power manifested through you each day, in little and big ways. As you look for it, accept the challenge to do it and watch Me strengthen and empower your gift. This is a challenge, but with this challenge comes great reward and spiritual growth—the empower­ment of your faith.

118. So go forth, knowing that all is working together for good from behind the scenes. All is under My perfect control. As you trust Me each step of the way and exercise your faith, the power will grow, your faith will flourish, the miracles will happen, the problems will be solved, and My witness will reach the world. (End of message from Jesus)

119. I love you, sweet mates and companions in this great work! I admire you for your faith, fight and dedication. Don’t worry about anything! The Lord is going to do it! Peter and I are praying for you! Keep up the good work. You’re going great! Go Activated!

Much love forever‚

Mama

(Quotes from other messages interspersed throughout the text of this GN: )

The keys are yours; put Me to the test! Command the wind and the waves and all the elements of Heaven, Hell, and of the Earth.

I ask you to advance to the next level of commitment and dedication. No longer allow yourself to stay at a certain level of faith and commitment‚ but move forward with the swiftness these keys can empower you with. The time has come to move rapidly and to progress faster than ever. You cannot stand still any longer, for the world beneath your feet has become a sinking-sand cesspool.

My precious ones, now is not the time to relax or to let down your guard. Don’t become complacent, knowing you possess the keys to unlock any door. For though they will unlock any door for you, you must learn the skill of turning the keys in the locks. You must learn which key opens which door. I will not hold back the approaching night of gross darkness much longer, so it is high time to realize and then release the power that I have placed within your hands and to practice with the keys. For in the darkness you will need to be masters of the keys.

It is now high time to learn to think in a brand-new way. I will flood you with “light packets” of My Word, filled with information that will teach you of this new way to progress and of the ways to use the keys. I will show you pictures, visions of great significance to make it easy for you to understand My will and the plan of action you are to follow. You will know My truth plainly, for as you follow your king and your queen, you will come to know pastures you have never known before. I will lead them, and they will lead you to the places where there is the greenest grass and the purest waters.

It’s imperative that you shed the weights that would keep you from rising above. There is no need to walk in the depths, the quagmire, the fog and illusion of the lower dimensions. It is My wish, and completely possible, for you to walk with Me above the things of Earth and to live with Me in My dimension.

If you feel stuck or anchored to a murky place, soar once again into the heights of Heaven by shedding the weights and burdens of Earth. Give up any burden keeping you down. Give that burden to Me and I will give you wings to soar!

You, My wonderful servants who so faithfully devote your energy, time, effort, and love to Me and My cause, I honor and commend. Yours is a momentous task, but I have now given you the keys that will unlock every door, and no recourse for help will be withheld from you. You’re now breaking through the final levels of illusion and darkness.

(End of file.)

More on the Keys!

What the Future Holds, Part 2

By MariaMaria #572 CM 3351 4/01

Dear Family,

1. I love you! During Feast 2000, the Lord revealed that we were living in the era of greater miracles. At that time we received a new anointing. Then in Feast 2001, the tre­mendous gifts of enhanced faith, the power to rise above, the knowledge that there are no impossibilities to us, and the keys to the Kingdom were given to each one of us. In this next fascinating message, we learn more about these keys and their power, and the part they play in bringing about the miracles we will perform in the days to come.

Keepers of the Power

2. (Jesus speaking to the channel:) First I will describe what I allowed you to see as you listened to this Heavenly “Song of Victory.” As the first notes of the song came through the speakers, your eyes became misty and began to sting—not from tears, but because I was opening your eyes to the spirit world. The room took on hues of various blues from light that came from the borders of the room, like a wall surrounding you. As the words of the song came, the wall began to move, slowly and gracefully, rippling like water, as if something were trapped inside.

3. Then when the chorus came‚ the “wall” took on the form of many women who are conductors of My power. Their arms shot up in praise, and their waves of blond hair stood up as they arched their backs. Tremendous fountains of light shot out of their chests, and in bursts, sprayed over everyone sitting in the room. You had to close your eyes because it was too much for you to behold. But the next thing you saw was that each of the beautiful blue creatures had come to stand behind someone, as if each had chosen a subject. With the last bars of the song, your sight was closed to that picture and brought back to your dimension.

4. These beings are the keepers of the power sources of Heaven. They are a branch of My mind and My power. They are many, yet they are one‚ and their sole focus is to protect the power of God. Like a cloud, these beings of divine energy descended upon the room where you were gathered, not unlike in the day of Pentecost. At My command they released the fire of Heaven’s energy source upon each of you, giving you direct connection and access to all the power of Heaven.

5. I gave each of you the keys to Heaven and Hell—the power of Heaven and dominion over Hell. These are not tangible, physical keys; never­theless, it was an enlarging of My power in you. To use these keys requires faith, wisdom, and a mighty protective field around you. So as I gave you the keys, I sent these keepers who transferred the power to you‚ and who will stand by you as added protectors of the portion of My Spirit that I am entrusting you with. Through them I will also help you learn to enlarge your faith and to use this power in the days to come. Put your trust in these beings‚ for they contain the secrets of the power of Heaven. They are directly connected to My mind, which commands these power sources.

6. Through the power of prayer‚ the power of loving Me, and the power of praise, you will have the power to command all the forces of evil to be bound for a time, the power to work miracles in My Name, the power to use My will to fight for you in battle. You cannot fathom the tremendous power that has been made available to you! As you grow in faith and in Me, prepare to be astounded at the miracles I will work on your behalf. (End of message from Jesus.)

7. (Mama: ) Following are several more fas­cinating messages that give additional insight about the power of the keys. This is also a plea from the Lord for us to start now to begin to recog­nize, practice and hone our skill at ­accessing the power given us through the keys. This whole concept is pretty awesome and can be quite mind-boggling if you try to figure out exactly what is happening and how. The Lord is trying to help us understand, as much as possible, but we must also realize that we’re entering a new and unexplored realm of the spirit world. This is new truth and strong meat, and some of our understanding will come only by faith as we accept, believe, and do what the Lord says. Of course, we can’t expect to understand everything right away. Some aspects of this revelation are still a mystery, just as some of the truths the Lord revealed to Dad were not completely clear, at least not at the time he first received them.

8. But one thing we know for sure: Our re­ceiving the keys to the Kingdom is a big deal and it should change our lives. We should be aware of that power and begin to learn about it, become comfortable with it, and use it. I pray that these additional messages from the Lord in this series will help fill in some of the details and continue to clarify why the Lord has given us these keys and what we’re supposed to do with them.

A Brief Review of

“The Keys to the Kingdom!”

9. Because it has been a few months since Feast 2001 when you read “The Keys to the Kingdom,” I will include a few excerpts from that GN as a brief review.

(Jesus speaking:) Right now, today, if you will reach out and receive, I will turn your activation key, giving you unlimited access to the full power of Heaven. I now wish to give you complete access to the keys of the Kingdom, for this is what you will need to complete the mission you have before you. …

When I spoke to My early disciples, say­ing, “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom,” I was also speaking to you‚ My children of David in the Time of the End—for I knew you would need it and I knew your faith would warrant it. …

I now present you with full access to the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; according to your faith it is done. This is an amazing, awe-inspiring possession; learn to use it wisely. …

Never before have My children had access to such power as I am making available to you now—not even Peter and the early disciples, or any of My faithful prophets and great men and women of faith down through the ages. It is given to you, My faithful of the Last Days, to possess new codes that were not necessary in the past because the need did not warrant them. But now it is warranted, for you will do greater works than I. …

All power is given you‚ and all the power of Heaven is augmented in these Last Days! The power has been there all along, within you, but now, today, you can access it—according to your faith it is done.

The evil forces are also amplified. They surround you; they are everywhere, working to keep people in bondage and darkness. But your power is amplified many times over. You have the power to release those in bondage. You have the power to overcome all evil. In your keys, you have liberty and freedom. Therefore start today and access this power I put in your hands; use it prayerfully and wisely, and walk in and claim victories. There are no obstacles to you; as long as you continue to do your part‚ I will never fail to do Mine.

This is your day! Now I give you all power in Heaven and in Earth; according to your faith be it done unto you. It is accessible to you who follow closely. Access it as often as needed, put it to use, exercise it, spread it around‚ use it to draw men to Me, to carry out the plan I put before you. (End of excerpts of ML #3318:31-37, GN 922.)

10. (Mama:) Here is more from our great Shepherd and Husband about this marvelous gift—what it means, how we can use it, and what it can do. There is so much to learn, but each mess­age we read helps to enlighten our understanding a bit more. Day by day we will become more adept at using and making the most of the power of the keys!

Use the Keys!

11. (Jesus speaking:) You stepped forth in faith, nothing wavering. You wooed, aroused, and pleased Me in obedience‚ humility‚ and love. Your reward, My darling brides, is the complete activation of the keys to the Kingdom that I have placed in your hands.

12. Now, My loves, you are accountable for their use. What will you do with this tremendous gift I have given you? Will you use the keys to unlock the doors and release the power? Will you draw on the power that is available to you? Will you claim My promises and put Me to the test? Are you willing, dedicated, and brave enough to move forward and go through the doors of the unexplained? Are you willing to face your greatest fears and walk through them, and watch as they dissolve into a fading vapor? Have no fear that you cannot do what I have asked of you, or that it is too hard‚ for nothing is impossible to you! So fear not, My little flock. It is My good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

13. Use these keys in faith and you will be the heroes of the future, even of the generations of Heaven! They will look back upon these days and speak of these times with awe and great respect for you—My brave and beautiful brides who received the keys from My heart and pulled down the power of Heaven, who did greater works than I did while on Earth.

14. Make no mistake, when you melded together as you praised Me and wooed and enticed Me, you activated the power of the keys of the Kingdom, and the world will never be the same again. You will make history—this I promise—for a line has been crossed, and there’s no way to turn back. Knowing this, thrust yourself forward, and I will meet you halfway. Step off the cliff of carnal reasoning into the open sky of faith. I will be substance beneath your feet and will hold you up. Use the keys in the locks and I will give you the new wings that await you.

15. Now that these keys are yours, don’t allow yourself to be merely a silent spectator. Jump into the arena! Use these keys and win great victories. Use these keys in some way each and every day, so that when the time comes for you to pull down fire from the heavens, great will be your faith to do so. Become so skilled with them that in an instant you can unlock the secrets and the power of the universe, and bring to light the hidden riches of darkness. Much greater works than any man, woman, or child in the history of the planet will you perform‚ because nothing is impossible to you, and My mighty Heavenly power is at your command.

16. In this new era, this new beginning, this day that I have given the keys of the Kingdom into your hands, I created a warp, or what you might call an opening in the fabric that sep­arates the dimensions, thereby allowing a greater infusion of fifth-dimensional energy to be dispensed to you. This opening is also to give you greater ease as you reach your arms of faith up to Me, key in hand, and access the things that are not of Earth. Never for any man or woman have I opened the windows of Heaven as wide as I have for you.

17. This is the beginning of the fulfillment of My promise that in the Last Days I would pour out My Spirit. Your faith and your sucking, your wooing and enticing Me, triggered the activation of the keys I have given to you. And I opened, for your sake, the very real fabric between Heaven and Earth and Hell, so you may know in full the power of the keys that I have given to you in the times to come.

18. My dear and precious loves, I want you to know that I am well pleased with you, for when you wooed Me, I saw that your love for Me was pure and unselfish. I asked you to woo Me‚ that you might receive the activation of a great gift‚ and when you united to receive this blessing, I searched your hearts. I saw that your love for Me is so great that you would have loved and wooed Me in this way even if I had not given you the promise of the keys. Your love for Me is pure, unselfish love, and I love you so much for that. You are My precious brides, and My devotion to you will never end.

19. Some of you may see some significant miracles right away; for others, depending on the need, it may take a little longer to behold the full magnitude of the power. But I tell you, even if you don’t see these keys in the physical, they’re not a figment of anyone’s imagination. They’re a real gift to you from My heart—the fulfillment of many of My promises to you.

20. Besides your salvation and the gift of the Holy Spirit, these keys are the most priceless and important gifts you have ever received, for with these keys, all Heaven, all Earth, and Hell is at your command! You possess all that is within the worlds and all that is between, and at your request I will unleash all that you need in the blink of an eye!

21. I want your mind, your spirit, and your heart to become accustomed to the sensation of the power that I have freshly given unto you. For when you are accustomed, you will use these keys more. To become accustomed, you must practice. Once you realize the full value of these keys‚ you will want to use them again and again, in every aspect of your lives.

22. When you use these keys in faith, you will rise above any conflict within you when I show you new truths. For when you have activated the power of these keys, the Enemy can’t come close to you, and My light will be so clear to you. He can’t touch you. He is sorely afraid of the power of these keys‚ for they will be the cause of his end, and he knows this. For every weapon to defeat both him and his power is within your hands when these keys are put to use. And now that you possess these keys, I can speed along My return, and he will lose his power and be cast into the bottomless pit.

23. As you begin to access the storerooms of Heaven, authentication of the power of My Words will be manifested more in your heart and in your lives daily. These are the keys of en­lightenment. Set aside anything that stirs doubt in your heart or mind concerning them, for only by faith will the full truth of the keys be validated.

24. Those of you who have been battling for your place of service and have had a difficult time focusing, I tell you, use these keys‚ and you will receive an infusion of the power of My Spirit that will show you what is truth and what is fabrication‚ so that you’ll be able to see things more clearly and make wise decisions.

25. Use the keys to unlock the secrets and the power within My Words. Many are the illusions and lies the Enemy will attempt to blind you with, but when you use these keys, you will come across mysteries and their answers in My Word that you never saw before.

26. Know for certain that you are destined to overcome Satan and all his minions. For the keys know no failure—only the perfection and power of My promises. Follow the nudging of My Spirit as you step out into uncharted territory now‚ for the Spirit will guide you into all truths, even as you ride the waves and brave the wind.

27. My beloved loves, you will become masters of Light as these dark days ahead unfold. This is indeed the era that has been prophesied and foretold for many ages.

28. I will send you a great ball of fire and brilliant light that will shine and lead the nations! This ball of clear light will shine, and Maria will be the keeper of the flame. She will fan it with the oxygen of My Words of prophecy. This light will be a beacon in the darkness‚ attracting those who seek a haven from the terrible storms. This ball of fire will light your path, and the road you walk will be clear and bright unto you.

29. This light will be seen by all the nations, and they will know that you walk with Me. This light will be a consuming fire, and will keep you warm in the terrible and dark days. This ball of light and fire will not burn you or harm you in any way, for to you it is a balm and resurrection. But woe to any man who dares to touch you when this flame is in your hands‚ for it will consume him! You will activate this flame with the keys of the Kingdom.

30. The light will be bright and will awaken the masses. Those that are My children who wallow in the mud will see the sorry state they’re in and will cry out to you for assistance, solutions‚ information, encourage­ment, and salvation. Now is the time! This is the hour! This is the day! You are needed more than ever, My precious warriors and shepherds. I’m waiting to unleash mighty power into your tiny hands—all the power of God!

31. Do you realize that I have given you com­mand over the wind and the lightning—over the elements themselves? So knowing this, don’t allow the storms to faze you. Go out and rescue the lost. For the purpose of the keys is to fulfill My plan to reach all the lost of the world so that I may return and gather My loves unto My ­bosom. I will protect you as you do My bidding.

32. Focus now, My loves. You must focus to use these keys. Praise and woo and focus. Do not take these keys for granted and let them sit upon a shelf. Use them!

33. Excitement in Heaven is building, dear loves, and the realization of the vision of the great things to come is beyond your wildest dreams. Reach out and grasp that dream! All Heaven is just waiting for you as you transform yourselves and adapt yourselves to this new reality.

34. I’m pleased that you’re becoming attuned to the pulsations of My power, and that you’re be­coming increasingly sensitive to the refined stimuli of My Spirit. Continue to acknowledge Me and attune yourself to Me, and you will greatly please Me, your Husband and your Lover. When you use these keys‚ you will grow more and more aware of our multifaceted, amazing relationship‚ both physically and spiritually. Come to Me and heed My Words to learn the strength, vitality, and mastery of the keys of the Kingdom.

35. My loves, now I can lead you to an astounding plethora of exciting information, new wisdom to assist you to function in this new reality in which you will find yourself. Joy and bliss will become the norm, and gradually you’ll begin to manifest the dreams and visions I have given you, as hand in hand‚ shoulder to shoulder, you walk through the days of the End into the glorious light of the days to come when you’ll be united with Me, your loving, caring Husband and Protector.

36. Though the days just ahead are ones of unequaled darkness, know this: With these keys in your hand, you will see everything more clearly and much brighter than you ever have‚ even though there is darkness all around. You will shine as you walk‚ leading others to the light of My love. This is a precious gift I have bestowed upon you, My children of the End.

37. In the days ahead, I will teach you many different ways to use the energies and the ­powers that are now available to you. Your perceptions will broaden as you see and experience the new state in which you find yourself‚ and you will know that I am the Lord and you are My brides upon whom I dote.

38. You may find that greater obstacles will clutter your way, for the Enemy will stop at nothing to hinder you and discourage you from walking the straight and narrow road. He knows the final outcome if you continue on this road, so he will place before you these things that seem to be obstacles. I tell you that they are but ­illusions and lying vanities. Walk through the rocks, for they are not truly there, My loves. Walk through the fires, too, with no fear or dread. As you walk through, claiming My power, I will be your Protector, and you will walk through the fire without the smell of smoke upon you, for nothing is impossible unto you! (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

The Enemy Will Fight Back,

But We’ll Win!

39. (Jesus speaking: ) This begins an amazing time for all of you in My Family. You will see things that you didn’t think were possible‚ and you will do things that, if I told you about them today, you wouldn’t believe were achievable! Every one of you now has the same keys, and thus the same power that I had when I was on Earth. Can you picture that? Think of all the miracles that I performed. I healed the sick, I walked on water, and I even raised the dead. You can now do all those things and more, because I have willed it so. You just need the faith to step out and do them.

40. The stakes are raised for good and for evil, as both sides come out to fight, and you will be there on the front lines. I couldn’t have picked anyone better than you to represent My side in this great and mighty battle. You might think that you’re not strong enough or worry that you won’t have the faith, but fear not. For do you think that I would have picked you to fight this great battle if I didn’t think you were up to it? This is not a battle that can be lost; it must be won, there are no two ways about it! We must win, for Heaven and Earth depend on it.

41. I am the General of this battle, and I have at My fingertips all the resources of Heaven and Earth. I’ve picked you because you are the best and the most highly trained. You’ve been preparing for this fight for many years. You’ve gone through the days of preparation, and you’ve yielded yourselves to Me and have become My brides. You’ve learned to hear My voice clearly and to ask Me everything. All of these things make you the best!

42. And now that I’ve given you the keys, you’re invincible! The Evil One sees that his time is short, and he’s afraid. He knows what power these keys hold and what they can do. He remembers the last time he was defeated by them, when I walked the Earth, and he’s trembling with fear. He will not stand down; he will fight all the harder. He will come in with new angles that he hasn’t tried yet—which for you mean new battles that you haven’t yet been through.

43. He will quickly hit his hardest, trying to knock you down before you even start using this new power, because he knows that once you see the power you have, there will be no stopping you! Another tactic he’ll try is doubt. He’ll tell you that you have no new anointing and that your power is still the same. He’ll tell you that there’s time, and that nothing needs to change. He does all this because he’s truly afraid. I know, because I can see his heart. He comes across like he’s in control and knows what’s going on, but he’s truly afraid of what you’ll be able to do once you realize what you have in your hand, and he wishes to snatch it away before you have that chance.

44. Don’t let him do that. Stay strong in My Spirit and keep using all the new weapons that I’ve given you, for it is because of your use of the new weapons that I’ve been able to give you the keys, the ultimate weapon—a power so strong it rocks the very gates of Hell and sends fear into the hearts of all those who are evil!

45. With this weapon in hand there’s no turning back; it’s now all or nothing! I’ve given you everything you need to win—all you need now is faith to use the power of the keys and keep going for Me no matter what. I’m there leading the fight, so call on Me for direction. It’s going to be a long battle, but we’ll win‚ I promise! (End of message from Jesus)

The Continual Process of

Drawing Closer or of Falling Away

46. (Jesus speaking:) I have given you these keys to the Kingdom to unleash the powers of Heaven and to bind the powers of Hell; but just as with any keys, you have to use them. If I were to give you a key to a great chest of treasures, that key would be worthless unless you put the key into the keyhole and turned it, thus accessing all of the riches. So it is with these keys that I have given you. They are treasures of great price, for through them you can have access to all of Heaven and power over all of Hell. But one must use the keys or else it is meaningless to possess them.

47. How foolish it would be for one who has a key to a great treasure chest to not use the key to open those great riches—either for fear of the key not working, for fear of what others would think of him if the chest didn’t open‚ thinking he didn’t need the riches, or just plain laziness. In the same way‚ how foolish it would be if you, My precious brides‚ did not make full use of these keys that I am giving you‚ either through lack of faith, worry that I will not come through for you, spiritual laziness, or not being willing to make the sacrifices or changes in your personal life in order to progress and change.

48. I tell you clearly and plainly that there will be some within your midst who will not have the faith to use these brilliant keys to the Kingdom. Though many have fallen from your ranks and gone to a lesser place of service in these last years, I tell you that there will be more. Even in light of this great treasure that I have now bestowed upon you, there will still be those who will not want to use it, or who will doubt its worth and power. Even now there are those who are scoffing and mocking. Even now there are those who have been considering going back, even making plans for their exit, but who are simply waiting for the opportune time, a good “excuse.” Even now there are those who have left already in their hearts, who are attached only to the lifestyle and the comfort of the way of life they have grown accustomed to. Even now there are those who disbelieve the Word‚ who doubt the revelations, and who therefore lack the faith to take advantage of these gifts.

49. This saddens Me, but I cannot force this great and awesome gift on My children. I give it to all of you freely‚ for all are worthy, but not all will reach out by faith, with a believing heart, to use these keys and thus access My full power. But it is better that those who are wavering, those with little faith, step behind the front lines; for if they do not, they will only slow down the progression of My will. If there are half-hearts in the frontline ranks, we will not move as swiftly and efficiently in the era of action as I would desire, and as we desperately need to.

50. There is so little time left, and we must continue moving forward. We must forge ahead. We must move on. We must continue to conquer and advance. Those who fall behind will still have a place of service in My ranks, and they will still have the keys that I have given them this day, but they will only be able to use them as their faith allows, and thus they will not be as mightily used as those who are in the front lines, “all there” for Me.

51. It’s been a continual process. Those who have been yielding and progressing and growing in faith and trust and dependence on Me these many years will take this as yet another step to draw closer to Me, to be more used of Me. For these it will be easy. But for others it will not be easy—either because they haven’t been yielding to Me completely‚ haven’t been drinking in My Word completely, or haven’t been progressing as I have desired. So I tell you that some will fall by the wayside. The purging of the Family is not yet complete. Each revolution, each revelation‚ each new step of progress purges the Family just a little bit more.

52. As it was with Gideon’s men, so it is with you. I gave them not one test, but two. With the first test I purged the ranks of those who were fearful and afraid, and with the second test I purged the ranks even further. For you there have been many tests that have purged you, and there will be more. But worry not for those brethren that you lose, because I am not limited by many or by few—and even those that you lose will still be used of Me in a different way. They will not be rendered useless. All of their training will come to the fore at the time appointed, and I will use them mightily—not as mightily as I will use those of you who have stuck‚ and those who will go with Me into this new era, making full use of all of My gifts, including the keys to the Kingdom, for unto you is given the greatest power‚ because of your faith.

53. These keys to the Kingdom are not the last gift that I will give you, My children of David. Those who hold on and go on for Me will receive more spiritual gifts from My hand. The time is not yet right for Me to reveal them to you now, because I must take you one step at a time. But know that your faithfulness to hone this new gift of faith that I have given you‚ to use these keys to the Kingdom, will pave the way for the next great gift that I will give you, My darling brides. (End of message from Jesus)

54. (Mama:) This message that you just read should motivate you to keep yielding, progressing, and growing in faith and dependence on the Lord. As you keep drinking deeply of the Word, with a believing, accepting spirit, the Lord will continue to give you all that you need to keep going for Him, being “all there” on the front lines. I know some of you feel pretty battle-weary, old and worn out and just plain tired. These feelings and even physical circumstances might make you think you don’t have what it takes anymore to be a full-time dropped-out soldier for the Lord. But don’t listen to that reasoning; it’s not true! Remember the strength of weakness, remember that there are no impossibilities for us, and remember the power to rise above and the keys of the Kingdom! Why do you think the Lord has given us this enhanced gift of faith and greater power? Because we need it! So if you feel very much “in need‚” and if you feel in fact that you’re barely making it, that’s not a problem if that weakness in yourself pushes you to grab those keys and put them to use.

55. I’m reminding you of this because I don’t want you to misinterpret this explanation from the Lord about the further purging of the Family. It doesn’t matter if you feel weak and tired and worn out. That’s why the Lord has made provision for our weakness. That’s not what will cause you to step back from the front lines‚ as long as you let the enhanced gift of faith give you the power and strength of spirit you need to keep going. The Lord isn’t looking for per­fection. He isn’t sizing you up according to your own strength, and moving out those who no longer have youth, endurance and natural drive. He can compen­sate for your tiredness, discouragement, personal battles, etc. But what He does expect from you is that you’ll have faith and a believing attitude.

56. The fact that the Lord is continually purging the Family of those who no longer believe is noth­ing new. That’s been the process the Lord has used since the beginning to keep the Family strong and pure. So we shouldn’t be surprised that there will be others who will step back from the CM Family or even leave the Family altogether. That’s the natural pro­gression of every new religious movement as long as it remains revolutionary, dropped out, and uncom­pro­­mised.

57. There have always been those who have left the Family for one reason or another, but they’ve generally been outnumbered by those who have joined each year. So the Family has continued to grow, to flourish, to become ­stronger and more dedicated‚ and will continue to do so in the days to come. And, as the Lord promised in Part 1 of this series, our new laborers in the future will include many of those who left in years past‚ thank the Lord!

58. Those of you who want to stay on the front lines of the revolution should take this warning to heart, realizing once again the importance of staying right with the Lord and full of faith and His Word. If you do that, then you’ll have the faith to receive the Lord’s gifts—not only those He’s already given, but those He will yet give. There’s more to come, and we all need to be ready. We prepare for the future not through our own strength, not by never having any battles or feeling weak or weary, but by believing‚ receiving, accepting, yielding and moving forward by faith!

The Unity of an Army

59. This next message touches on another angle of how the Lord wants to keep the Family pure in spirit—by making sure that those who are full-time disciples are fully dedicated to the cause and committed to the vision. From this purity will come greater camaraderie.

60. (Jesus speaking: ) The things of the spirit are so vast and hard to comprehend. You reach into My Heavenly realm and grasp what seems so great and marvelous, and it is. Yet ­often there’s so much more to it‚ and you see only a portion of My power through the revelation.

61. As I go at your pace, and as each Family member strives to pull down more and more Heavenly messages, your faith will be increased and your vision will be broadened. My messages and revelations for each one will open up new truths to each individual, and the faith of each one will be increased more and more—and thus begins a wonderful cycle of pulling down My seeds in faith‚ and My giving and honoring your faith with fuller and weightier messages from beyond to guide each one individually from My Heavenly realm. And you will not be able to stop up this flow—nor will you have any desire to. For all those who love My Words will seek to know more truth, and will hunger after the meat of My Spirit that I so desire to give you.

62. Don’t be limited by your own carnal reasoning. Don’t ask yourself, “Does this make sense? How can this be?” But only pull down My words and give as it is given unto you, and afterwards you will see that the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit and life and light and truth. They will feed your soul and strengthen your body.

63. The channel that I wish for each one to have connecting him or her to Me is a strong and unbreakable channel. I wish to give to all not only generalized answers, but specific answers in specific situations. There’s no need to worry that you will come up blank, for if you come to Me in full faith, I will not fail in any of My promises, and I will give you that which you have asked.

64. In these Last Days there will be need for a trust—a bond amongst you—just as two soldiers fight together and each one trusts the other to “cover him” and watch his back. They can’t be in doubt, for this is the unity of an army—a brotherly unity, an unbreakable love that knows the other would give his life for him. When they wield their weapons they work as a powerful team, each watching out for the other, perhaps even leaving his part of the fray to help the other out of a heated fight.

65. So shall it be with you‚ My Family. As you practice wielding this weapon of prophecy, you will gain more and more trust in one another. You will become dependent on each other’s skill in wielding this gift, as well as your own skill. No man will be able to go without these spiritual weapons, just as no man in battle can do without some kind of physical weapon‚ or he would be helpless and only a burden. As you all learn to wield your weapons with courage and precision, you will become a more powerful team and be able to get much accomplished many times over.

66. No one will want to have the question in his mind, “Is this brother by my side going to fight with me, or will he turn and run in the midst of battle?” All will need to be wholehearted and dedicated, committed unto the End. All will need to take a stand and determine in their hearts whether they will be part of My elite warrior forces.

67. Take a stand this day! Don’t be swayed by the Enemy’s lies, becoming undecided, un­com­mitted or even neutral. For if you choose to just barely hang on, not making a strong determination in your soul, neither having prepared nor practiced with your weapons, you will be knocked off at the slightest wind of doctrine. You may want to latch on to the new changes, you may even wish to raise your sword in battle‚ but you will not be prepared!

68. Therefore, choose this day. Don’t be com­fortable sitting on the fence, for this luke­warmness will not last long, and you will need to choose which way you go. There’s no standing still in your service for Me. You’re either moving forward and advancing, or getting pressed backwards in defeat.

69. March forward with Me, your Commander, and see My salvation! There will be a great price, but the rewards and happiness gained through your total commitment will be more than worth it all. You will cry tears of joy, and you will realize how small were the sacrifices you made to further My Kingdom when you see My love for you and My purpose for you that has been destined since the beginning of time.

70. Fulfill this call. Don’t wait! Arise and take a stand. The time is drawing nigh‚ and I’m gathering My troops to battle. (End of message from Jesus.)

Reserved for Us, Revealed to Us!

71. (Mama: ) You’ll enjoy the encouraging word picture in this next message about our very special calling. There are also some tremendous promises from our Lover. You might want to commit to memory some of the promises from the Lord about the gifts‚ power and anointing He will give us. These promises are true, because our King and Savior cannot deny Himself!

72. (Jesus speaking: ) My Word says, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man‚ the things which God has prepared for them that love Him.” But,” it continues, “God has revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” And this is one of the things I will do for you, My ­children—reveal. I have already revealed to you many things that I have never told others, and I will continue to reveal.

73. Reveal is the key word. There are many things I have not revealed to the many who love Me, many other Christians, but I am going to reveal them to you, My children of David. This is something that is reserved for you, and only you, through prophecy, through listening to Me, and through hearing My whispers.

74. I have saved the deep things for you—the miracles‚ the revelations, the power, the healings, the understanding, the intimacy‚ great faith, great boldness, hearing clearly My voice in prophecy, the anointing of being My Endtime leaders of the world. This is reserved for you. The task before you, My Family, is reserved as your specific chosen calling. You will fulfill the verse, “Greater things than these shall ye do.” This is what I will call you to do. The Endtime passages that you’ve read about those who do miracles and exploits, this is for you—you upon whom the ends of the Earth have come.

75. I will give you the faith and anointing. You won’t have to worry about it or work it up; it’s a gift, and it will happen as you seek Me and as you step out, just as you have done many times, from speaking in tongues, to witnessing‚ to receiving prophecies. As you put forth the will‚ I will do the impossible.

76. This Endtime was reserved for you much the same as if you want to reserve a table at a restaurant. You call in and say you want to reserve a table at such-and-such a time for a group of so many. Well, that’s what I have done in this Endtime. I’ve called you My chosen and said, “I’ve reserved these Endtime seats for this group, My children of David.” That’s why you’re here and in this Family, and that’s why I’m going to anoint you and give you faith and courage and powers and supernatural gifts you never even thought imaginable.

77. I will increase your faith, and there will be no impossibilities to you—no sickness that can’t be healed, no water that can’t be walked upon‚ no demon that can’t be brought into subjection, no storm that can’t be quelled. You will even be able to bring the dead back to life when necessary. Do you believe Me? Try Me‚ test Me, prove Me, and see that I will not deny My Word! I will keep My promise and fulfill your destiny. (End of message from Jesus)

Tests of Faith—

Steppingstones to Victory!

78. (Mama: ) I think you’re going to really appreciate this next message, as it explains why you might be having some pretty hefty battles these days. There is a purpose to it all, and the good news is, the battles will get easier to ­over­come!

79. (Jesus speaking:) This will begin the time of getting out My Words like never before. I know you’ve heard that before, and it seems that each year you get out more than the year before. But because you’ve entered the era of action and I have so little time to help My children be prepared and ready for all that’s in store for them, and will indeed be upon them very soon, I will begin to pour it out in quantities such as you have never seen!

80. And it will not be a review of the basics, but you will chart new territory in the revelations that I give and that are destined to be published! You will cover new ground in the spirit, for I will reveal to you secrets that have been given to none other.

81. I will challenge all My channels to stretch their faith! They can come to Me to hear what the future holds for them, as you have. That is a test of faith, but all those who come to Me with empty vessels will not only be filled to overflowing with what I want to give, but they will also find the size of their vessel increased from taking that simple step of faith.

82. So it will be in the days to come. There will be many steps of faith that I will ask of My children. Each time you make the right decision to take that step of faith, you will find your faith increased, for you will have activated your anointing of greater faith. It is within each of you, as I promised. But the only way to see the fulfillment of that promise, the only way to feel the anointing, to see the tangible proof, is to use it.

83. For that very purpose will I set before each of you many tests of faith. I will test your faith again and again in order to give you opportunities to exercise it. I will test your faith in what­ever areas it needs strengthening. Those of you who are strong in a particular area will not face as many tests in that area. But any area where your faith is weak or in need of strengthening, in that area you will be tested—for the sole purpose of teaching each of you to activate your anointing, to use your gift of faith, to rise above difficulties, and to overcome impossibilities.

84. It wouldn’t be an impossibility if you were faced with a test that was easy, or in an area where you are well versed or strong. It’s only an impossibility when it looks and feels impossible! For this purpose of strengthening you I will give you impossibilities to overcome. But this is not a punishment, a chastisement, or a sign that you’re out of My will. Rather it’s a sign that you’re one of My Endtime brides who has received the gift of greater faith, the anointing of overcoming impossibilities‚ and so I’m giving you these situations to learn to use that anointing, to put that faith into action.

85. In the soon–coming days, your faith will be tested by the Evil One. I will allow it as a testimony to My power, a testimony to the depth of your faith, a testimony to the overcoming power of My Spirit in you. But you must be ready for these great tests. I will allow each one’s faith to be sorely tested. These tests will come in new and varied ways, but it’s all for the purpose of teaching you to exercise the gift that I have put within you.

86. My channels will be tested as I speak and show of things I wish to pour out. My children will be tested as I give new revelations. There will be more false accusers, and their words will test the faith of some. I will ask you to take new steps of yieldedness or growth in your personal lives. Some will face battles of life-threaten­ing illness, which I mean for you to overcome through My supernatural power. In some cases, I will call loved ones Home to help from this side, and those of you left behind will have to face tests of endurance and trust in Me. The tests will be many and varied‚ but in each case the core purpose will be the same—that of strengthening your faith and teaching you to overcome, activating the gift of faith within you.

87. As you learn to overcome‚ the next test will be more obvious, and you will overcome more easily—because the formula for overcoming will be the same each time. I’ve outlined the basics in the messages I gave for Feast 2001, and I will give more specific counsel which you will need in the days to come. With each test you face, the process will become more and more clear, until your faith muscles are strong and exercised and you can put them to use without a moment’s hesitation. Each of you will become as a prizefighter, one of My commandos, skilled and trained for all scenarios, and ready for the darkest days that will ever fall upon the world.

88. This is nothing to be feared or dreaded‚ but it is the beginning of the purging, the making white, the preparing of My saints and ­heroes of faith who will be My showcase to the world. Each one will be called upon to do miracles. Each of you will need to be ready‚ your faith exercised and resting firmly on the foundation of My truth, My Word, and utter confidence in My love. The days to come will not be the time to wonder or hesitate. Your reflexes will need to be as lightning! And your defensive armor will be vital—your shield of faith, your overcoming faith, your faith which will surround you, protect you‚ empower you, and ultimately triumph victorious over the Dragon‚ the world, and all of evil’s power!

89. Right now your faith is small. You’ve used it and exercised it, but it’s tiny in ­comparison to the potential, in comparison to the need. That’s why I have emphasized to such a degree the gift of faith that I’m giving you, and the keys of the Kingdom, which, if you have the faith to use them, will unlock all the power of Heaven itself.

90. Your faith is what will overcome the world, My loves, and now is the time when you will need that faith. So do not dread the tests. Look at them as steppingstones to victory, hurdles that you must cross, strength training for the big race. You will need it soon.

91. When you’re faced with the need and your faith is strong and exercised, you will weep tears of thankfulness for the tests that taught you how to use it, how to wield it, how to unleash the power of Heaven through the simplicity of your faith. You’ll not regret it, My loves. Gird up, for the training begins. The tests of your faith will come, but when they come, remember that they are but tests. Pull out the instructions I’ve given you, follow them implicitly, and watch your anointing be unveiled.

92. As you face each of these tests‚ the way to overcome will be obvious. You won’t have to wonder or guess; I’ll make it very clear to you as you seek Me. The basic criterion to keep in mind when you face these things is: Anything which holds you back or even threatens to hinder you from fulfilling what I’ve told you is My highest will is an obstacle to be overcome! Each thing that falls into that category is something you should look on as a test, an opportunity to put your faith into action, an opportunity to rise above, to strengthen your faith, to activate your ­anointing.

93. Each test that you pass‚ your faith will increase tenfold in that area. Each time you stretch your faith in obedience, in trust, in stepping out to do, to believe, your capacity will in­crease, your anointing will shine brighter, and you’ll be walking in the power of the activated gift that is within you. You won’t have to try; it will just come. You won’t have to work it up; your faith will be there, strong and exercised, and ready to be used. The first few tests will be hard‚ but after that you will see them as challenges. You’ll enjoy them, because you will have seen My power in action. You’ll feel your faith growing within you, and it will give you a glow, a happiness, an anointing that you’ve never known before.

94. This is your heritage, My loves—to have the greatest faith‚ the strongest connection, the most apparent anointing that I have given to anyone on Earth throughout all time! This is what I’m asking you to train for! This is what I gave you during Feast 2001! Can you believe it? You have yet to see the fulfillment, but each time you step out to stretch your faith in obedience to Me, you will see it, you will feel it, you will know how very real it is.

95. This will be your greatest year yet‚ My loves! Your witness will shine brighter than ever before. You will begin to see the fulfillment of many of My promises regarding Activated‚ the expansion of the Family, the new plan I have for you, the revival in spirit of those who are weary, the finances beginning to come in, and all of this will just be the beginning! It’s going to be great! So don’t hesitate! Walk in with full faith to claim the land, the promises I’ve given. This is your destiny‚ My loves! Take it! (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

96. (Mama:) God bless you‚ dear loves and mates! Peter and I love you so very much and are praying for you. Keep fighting and accessing the power that is rightfully yours through the keys of the Kingdom!

With love in our wonderful, miracle-working Hus­band, Mama

More on the Keys!

What the Future Holds, Part 3

By MariaMaria #573 CM 3354 4/01

Dear Family,

1. I pray you are enjoying this series of marvelous and awe–inspiring messages the Lord gave us after Feast 2001. They’re very deep and take much more than one quick reading to grasp. I sometimes review them by listening to them for my personal devotions, in an effort to more fully understand what the Lord is saying. I pray you can make the time to reread and review and under­stand them too.

2. This first message is really far-out! If you like sci-fi stuff, you’ll love this one. But the really great thing is‚ this is the truth! It’s not a figment of someone’s imagination. This really exists, and although it’s difficult to fathom such a magnificent scenario, we can take it by faith. Now we see through a glass darkly, and it’s difficult to even find words to try to explain these marvels. But I pray these wonders of the spirit world, as mysterious and awesome as they are, will thrill your hearts and flip you out and blow your minds with the wonder, power and greatness of our God! Praise the Lord!

Pavilion of the Power of God!

3. (Vision, described by the channel:) I see a picture of a building. It’s going to be very hard to explain, but I’ll try. Jesus, please help me. I see a round wall, like an enclosure, and at the entrance is a girl’s form leaning at a 35-degree angle. There are girls on both sides of the entrance in similar poses. She’s leaning back against the wall as if she were a part of the wall, but still a unique identity. Her face is framed by a golden frame that keeps her hair out of her face‚ a very thin and very beautiful sort of headpiece and hairband. Her entire body is dark blue, which contrasts sharply but beautifully with her golden face/hairband.

4. Her pose is one of holding on to this wall‚ as if some great force from inside this enclosure threatens to detach her. One hand is placed on the inside of the wall, and the other is braced at a downward angle on the outside of the wall, as if she were holding herself in place. Her hair is held down behind her somehow. The wall is blue, just like her—the same color.

5. Within this enclosure is a bright source of light and power, similar to what I’ve seen in various “Star Trek” videos and movies, except that it’s not contained by any visible containment field; it’s in the open air. For the sake of description, I’ll call it a plasma stream.

6. The plasma stream begins from a cone–shaped base in the floor‚ which is concave and sweeps down from the enclosing wall to this cone. The cone doesn’t have a top. The plasma shoots straight up in a gentle flow. As I follow it, I see that it’s supporting something—another cone-shaped object‚ made of the same material as the base wall and also blue in color. Around the cone/ring are women’s faces and upper torsos with their hands outstretched as if bearing this object on their backs. Their heads are free and move from side to side, and all focus on me as I stare at them.

7. I get the feeling that they’re the defenders or something‚ because their stare is ominous and daunting and very powerful. They aren’t evil, but looking at their faces definitely tells me that were an intruder to attempt to disrupt this flow, he or she would be met with a most deadly fate.

8. As I’m watching this scene, suddenly it’s as if someone turns on the power real strong, and the gentle plasma stream explodes and bursts upward through the ring with the women’s faces on it. They throw their heads back as the energy passes through the center of this ring, and their hands are thrust out further to the sides. It’s like the energy is passing through them as well.

9. I take a quick glance back down at the two gatekeepers, and they have their faces turned away from the flow as if they’re not allowed to look at it, or as if it’s too powerful to look at. Their hair is rocketing in the wind or shock wave behind them as they maintain their positions.

10. Following the stream up through the ring, I see that there are numerous other rings in line with this flow, all with the same faces on them, all blue in color. The energy stream goes straight up, as if these rings were its conduit, and my eyes follow its flow till I can’t see any more.

11. Around the conduit is a cloud of deep purple and blue, almost like a gas, but it swirls around and around, forming a cone shape as it ascends. This must go for miles, because even though it’s straight up, I can’t see the end of it.

12. I’m now standing outside the clouds and cone. I must be very far away, because I see it off in the distance and I can see the entire structure. It’s solid from the outside, with an opening in the top out of which shines this stream of energy. It’s going off into the distance and kind of fades away out of my view.

13. I somehow get the impression that this is only one of these huge generators, and that they all somehow work together to provide an extremely powerful source of energy.

14. Something that’s very strange is that when I was nearer the cone, I was aware of the presence of others around me‚ but they seemed to be outside these clouds. It seemed that it was some sort of a library‚ as I got a faint picture of a circular hallway with shelves and inlets around this central power source. The clouds seem to be a way of shielding whoever goes to this library from the energy’s flow. You can’t see it from inside the building, only if you’re inside the actual power generator part.

15. I get the impression that this is a huge storage place for something—the storehouse or the pavilion of the powers of God! Maybe they all need this power source to exist or something, and that’s why they’re so close to this thing.

16. The whole thing is very powerful and strong and is very carefully guarded. I imagine that the gatekeepers at the base of the stream are very powerful, and with their collective protection, nothing would be able to get through to disturb the flow. And that’s not accounting for the figures on the rings at each level that are not to be messed with either. They’d probably just channel some of that energy your way, and I could see that being the last time you made such an incursion! (End of vision.)

17. (Jesus speaking:) Behold now and see the generators of the power of God! There are many such powerhouses, and this is but the smallest and weakest of all of them. What you see here is the life’s blood for an entire civilization within My Kingdom. This power comes from My Father and is drawn directly into His throne. He powers this civilization with the words He speaks from His mouth. His thoughts are the air that this culture breathes. They exist by this power, it is their life, and without it they would have no energy at all.

18. This is a rare glimpse into the world beyond the earthly plane you live on—a sneak peek into some of the workings of My spirit world. And yet‚ it is more; it is a demonstration of the magnitude of My Father’s power and the power of His words.

19. You may think that the words you hear from Me or My Father or other spirit helpers are just direction and counsel, but the truth is, they are backed by more power than you can imagine! When I say I will defend you, I’m saying that with confidence, as I have available to Me every resource in My Father’s Kingdom to come to your defense. These are not hollow words; they’re backed by immense power!

20. That’s why there’s such great power in My words and in claiming My words—they are the power of the spirit world. They are the life of the unseen worlds that surround you. Without these words there would be nothing; the universe would be empty. There would be no universe. The things you see and hear of are but the tiniest speck within My great Kingdom.

21. This preview is a look at the smallest of the storehouses of the power of God. It is the least among millions, but even so, the power contained therein is more than enough to sustain a million galaxies of life. You have seen a rare sight. Not even the dwellers of this land are able to see within the protective cloud that shields them from the great power of God. Not even they are able to tread the ground where you, My children, have walked with Me today. These are sacred grounds, guarded heavily by My protectors, that none should come near or interfere with the source of My power.

22. So you have seen, and now you may believe that great is My power‚ and great is the force with which I back up My words to you on this day. As you have seen, now believe, and claim My power in your life today to do the impossible, to walk through the closed and barred gates of this world’s systems. Know that yours is that power because you are My lovers and I have placed My ring of marriage upon your ­finger, directly linking Me to you and you to Me. You have all My power at your fingertips through this gift I have given you.

23. Yours is this great power to command. Ask of Me and I will rain down My power upon you to fill your life and your ministries, that you may do the seemingly impossible! (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

24. (Mama:) The channel who received this vision was really struggling for words when he tried to describe what he saw. Whew, I don’t blame him. It’s a pretty out-of-this-world scene! I hope the rendition by dear Tamar helps to clarify this remarkable sight that so few have had the privi­lege of seeing. The Lord has revealed this never-before-known truth because He is trying through every means possible to help us have faith in the Words He speaks. He wants us to know that the power He’s given us is more than enough to do the impossible. His power, which we have access to by faith through the keys, is way bigger than the obstacles that we face, obstacles that must be almost laughable compared to the power that backs up our Miracle-maker’s promises.

25. We are Mrs. Jesus‚ and our Husband will keep His word. He’s not going to let us down or divorce us or leave us stranded. He is the most faithful, doting, loving Provider in existence. Even the billionaires of this world, who spoil their wives with an abundant supply of anything and everything imagin­able, cannot compare with our Lover’s ability to do what He has sworn to do.

26. Of course, His supply of our desires is not to be compared with the physical riches of the world‚ for much of His doting and care is unseen to the carnal eye‚ because it’s in the spirit. But with time, we’ll see that He will make it more and more visible—physically manifesting His care, protection, provision, and power to do the impossible according to our requests.

Unleash the Power

—Go on the Attack!

27. Insight into Endtime events, the import­ance of Activated‚ and what the Lord expects of us now are the themes of the message you are about to read. This is packed with challenging and enlightening information. It’s a long prophecy, which I know some of you have a hard time reading and concentrating on, but I ask that you please try to really concentrate, as this one is hot stuff, with very important instruction and vision-increasing counsel.

28. In this message, the Lord uses the illustration of a chessboard and chesspieces to describe the Endtime and His maneuvers to defeat the Enemy. Dad occasionally used chess as an analogy as well, in older Letters such as “God’s Chess Game” and others. For those who may not be familiar with the game, here’s a very brief and basic rundown on the pieces and their powers to help you better understand the Lord’s illustration: Chess is played between two players who have a set of white or black pieces, each with varying powers. Pawns can move only one or two spaces forward at a time. Bishops can move in a straight line diagonally. Rooks (or castles‚ as they are sometimes called) can move in a straight line side to side—but not diagonally. Knights can move in an L shape (either one space to the side and two spaces perpendicular to it, or two spaces to the side and one space perpendicular to it), and have the ability to jump over other pieces. Queens are the most powerful pieces, and are able to move in a straight line both side to side and diagonally. Kings can move one space in any direction. The capture of the other side’s king, known as checkmate, ends the game. Now, on with the Lord’s message!

29. (Jesus speaking:) Behold, the time has come! This is not just a time of looking forward to the future, for the future is here. Nor is it the day of biding your time and wondering when the events predicted will begin to happen, for this day marks the beginning of some of them‚ and is a mile­stone for the Family.

30. As the needs arise, I provide the power you require. I’ve seen the Enemy begin to arm himself with high-tech weapons of the future, for he has seen that the time is right, and is beginning to make his moves.

31. As he makes his move on the big chess­board, I’ve seen the end from the beginning‚ and I know exactly how to place My pieces, My players. And‚ yes, didn’t I even plan it, as a symbol in the game of chess, that the queen would be the most important and powerful player, the one with the most moves available, the most options? So shall it be with you, for I have given My Queen Maria all the powers of every chess­piece. She can move in any direction and for any length of space. She can swirl about at a mo­ment’s notice and even use her offensive weapons to disintegrate the Enemy—and thus it shall be.

32. I have waited for a long time‚ patiently waiting, as have you, for years and years and decades, as the Enemy of your souls has bided his time, looking for the precise moment to make his first move. And I have noticed a stirring in his camp, an arrangement of pieces on the chessboard. I’ve seen him begin to pick his weapons, even high–tech weaponry of the spirit with which to control and manipulate the powers of the world.

33. He has begun by joining them all in one interlinked system. His first foot forward has been an economic link. And though the eventual end will be to unite the world politically and governmentally‚ the forerunner of these is economic unity‚ economic dependency, whereupon he will build the rest of his structure, and whereupon if any one player desires to pull out, he will sink and be eliminated from the great game.

34. The powers that be in the world realize this. They realize that he has made his first move, and that if they’re to be included in the grand finale, they must throw in their lot with him. And so it is that they all begin to line up, one by one, in their places, vying for the most important places with the most power—nation vying against ­nation, economic power vying against economic power, for the best positions to play the final game. Greed is the motivating force urging the powers that be to follow his lead. For what will not a man do for his life? And what will not the powers that be do to retain their place and power?

35. As I see the economies of the world begin to unite and their leaders and rulers vie for power and position, I realize that this puts pressure on you, My Endtime children, as you wonder how you will survive. Therefore I have given you this greater anointing of faith which will empower you to make use of the systems of the world in order to get your bread and water. You will have no fear and you will eat of the fat of the land, for I have provided for you a place in the wilderness where you will be nourished for a time, and times, and the dividing of time.

36. Therefore you don’t have to worry about your own nourishment or your own safety. The mighty doors will open at the right time, and you will walk in unhindered and untouched. I will provide for My Own.

37. As the economies of the System tighten, unite, and synchronize, I will provide ways of abundance for you to continue to operate. I will provide ways for you to obtain all that you need from the Devil’s ugly System. With Me, nothing shall be impossible‚ and you’ll be able to thank Me for that loaf of bread, even if the Devil did bring it.

38. You will find ways to operate within the System as though you were a part of it, and I will give you the faith to call down powers of protection and supply from the Devil’s System that hates you. For I will blind them to your spirit‚ and as they look on the flesh they will perceive in their own minds that you are one of them, not knowing all the time that you are Mine.

39. Question: The Lord has often told us that our spirits bear witness that we’re of the Lord; we stand out and sort of shine. How will it be possible that the System won’t recognize us in those days, which will be even darker than now and when we’ll probably shine even more? It’ll obviously be a miracle, but it’s not clear to me how it will work.

40. (Jesus speaking:) I will show you when the time comes, My dear ones. I will work in different ways with different people. Recall the dream which your David had of being confronted by the guard with a ray gun who asked to see his registration. There was suddenly a child present with supernatural eyes, one of My angels, who simply took away his thought of David not being registered and solved the problem. So I will work in supernatural ways to help you, as well as what you will consider natural ways, but I will help you. (End of mess­age from Jesus.) [Note: See “Registration? Or Scatter­ation!” ML #333C:1-8,11.]

41. Remember, My Spirit is all-powerful, and as you walk into even the highest places of the Enemy, the snakes of his System will bow down before your staff and you will devour them. The power that I give you is greater than all the power of the Enemy, and thus by faith you’ll be able to subdue kingdoms‚ powers, and the very forces of the Devil. Where I guide‚ I provide, and where I say to walk, I will provide a way in the wilderness of the System. You will not hide yourselves away in a corner, but you will go out to perform great exploits in My Name, to stand up against the Goliath of the System, as My servant David of old did!

42. Yes‚ the Dragon has even now begun to snarl and to drag many into his whirlpool of deceit‚ and even many of your own flock has he subdued. But the time is coming when I will have you challenge him on his home field, go into his own dens to retrieve that which is rightfully yours, and those who are rightfully Mine. I wish for you to go on the offensive; let nothing stand in your way‚ for I send you out to free those caught in his clutches.

43. I command you to enter the very strong­holds of the Enemy to set the captives free! I no longer wish for you to just gain those who are on the fringes of his entrapment, but I wish for you to enter his own dens of iniquity and evil to bring back My children who have been enslaved therein. I give you power over all the power of the Enemy, and nothing shall be impossible to you!

44. I wish to rout the Enemy! I wish to remind him that there is a Power that he has to reckon with! I wish to show him that neither I nor you will be a pushover. I wish to remind him Who he’s playing against‚ and to set up a blockade even now against his next move. For by an offensive plan of action, I will push him and manipulate him into a position of limited choices.

45. I see the End already, and I know how to maneuver him into his final move, into checkmate. Yet I need a strong offensive team, one who will not let up, in order to push him back to where I want him to go. Therefore I call on the forces of David to begin to show their faces, to make themselves known in the media, to begin to cry aloud from the housetops of My salvation, to sing loudly of My praise, so that all might hear that there is yet hope in the land! For only if the slaves can hear you will they know of your existence. Only by the hearing of the ear and the seeing of the eyes will they know of the salvation of the Spirit that is still available to them.

46. Proclaim My message and truth on TV, on radio‚ in print‚ and through the distribution centers of the media. For only there will those who have been captive so long, and who are so, so deep in captivity, hear of the hope that is yet alive on the Earth. No longer will they say to one another, “Hope has fled our grasp,” but they will look at each other with a spark of hope and a glimmer of faith, and they will begin to seek you out and flock to you. Crowds will take hold of you and say, “We care not by what name we are called if you will just feed us. Feed us of your hope and of your words, for only in them do we find salvation from the torment of the Enemy.”

47. Therefore I say, My called-out ones of the Endtime, blaze My message abroad! Make sure that it rings from the rooftops, that it ­echoes from mountaintop to mountaintop, across the valleys in between, and around the world. For as you communicate My message and it is blazed abroad for all to hear, My sheep will begin bleating louder and louder, and you will be able to find them in their prisons.

48. Yes, there are many that will seek you out and find you; but there are many more that must be sought out. So send out seeker teams once the time is right. Once your message has begun to be blazed abroad upon the airwaves and the media distribution systems, then send out seekers to find those that could not find you‚ who are imprisoned in the depths of the Enemy’s entrapments, so deep that they cannot move by themselves.

49. When the Enemy begins to see you move in the more than 100 countries that you’re in, when he begins to see the lineup of My first teams out‚ he will be set in disarray and he will panic. He will be in confusion and will lose much ground this way. Yet this is only My initial thrust forward.

50. So go to it! Push Activated subscrip­tions like they’re going out of style and must be gotten today! Set the world on fire with Activated, My loves, for this will be the hook that will hook many. Advertise, publish, promote, and I will bring in the finances to cover your needs and will see that your efforts and products are multiplied—yes‚ even by the Devil’s own systems—for he cannot stand against My Spirit.

51. I have set people in certain high positions‚ who when their key is activated by My Spirit within you‚ will turn to you and protect you and accomplish your desires by their means. I have even employed moles with set time–activation keys that you have the combinations of, that when they meet you will automatically be unlocked and their kingdoms will become yours, their means of communication will become yours, their methods of distribution will become yours, and you will even be able to use their own distribution systems.

52. So seek them out. Seek out My moles, for they are there, hidden and disguised in the Enemy’s own clothing—not so that you can’t recognize them, but so that the Enemy can’t recognize them. But I have put a small measure of My Spirit and of longing for Me in their spirits, so that when they see you and hear of you, that bit of life that I have stored within them, like a seed stored for many years‚ will begin to sprout and come to life. And those small seeds will take over the spirit of the people they inhabit‚ and become a great tree for many of My children to lodge in. So seek out My moles in high places and low places, for they are all there, ready to be activated in their time, according to My plan.

53. But My pawns, My first lineup, must now go forth to their first positions. They must take their place on the chessboard for all to see, and then take their first steps forward as they go on the offense. This thrust forward will be in many and varied places, to make your presence known, to let the Enemy know that there’s a power­ful force to contend with. I wish for you to start taking over various places of his territory as you begin to push him back‚ and to utilize his land for your benefit and for the benefit of the Kingdom.

54. Question: Aren’t pawns sort of lowly pieces with limited powers? Why does the Lord talk about the pawns making the attack?

55. (Jesus speaking: ) To the master chess player, the grand master, every piece is vital and important. So is it with Me. All My pawns are precious to Me, and I love one piece just as much as another. And though they may seem lowly, each pawn is a potential queen—the most power­ful piece on the board. This is the power that each of My children has within him or her, for they have Me and My power!

56. I spoke of pawns going on the offense here simply because they must move before most of the other pieces can do so. If the pawns do not go forth to battle, then the rest of the army is immobilized‚ cooped up, and will soon be overcome. (End of message from Jesus)

57. Yes, this is the era of action, and by “action” I mean to get up and get out and start to act on My behalf! Go on the offense on My behalf! Make yourselves known as those who promote Activated! Don’t cower. It’s no longer time to hide, or to be content playing the defense, but it’s time to get up and get out and begin to take over the Enemy’s land, to go on the offense—score those points, claiming Activated subscrip­tions everywhere you go!

58. Make it known who you are! No salesman in his right mind covers and hides his product and his company’s name, but he promotes it! He advertises on his logos‚ on his letterhead‚ on everything and every­where he can! His goal is to broadcast his name anywhere and everywhere he can, and to promote his product! It’s time for you to do the same! If they don’t accept you in one city, shake the dust off your shoes and move to the next! But wherever you go, promote, promote, promote!

59. It’s no longer time to be ashamed of who you are—it’s time to stand up and be counted! It’s time to fight for and secure your place in their society, your right to publish your product, to promote your goods. Then, once you’ve secured your ground, begin to expand and to take over the Enemy’s territory little by little, square by square. Don’t be scared by the Enemy’s “boo,” for any salesman that ever succeeded had to endure hardness and opposition.

60. So secure your places on the front line of the field. For as My first line of chesspieces secure the squares where they’ve been placed, then I will begin to move them forward in a concerted effort to take over the key places of the chessboard where I know they will be needed to reach the lost.

61. So secure your positions! Come out on top! Make known who you are, and fight for your right to be there. Once this first round is won, I will have begun to open up new doors of passage to new ground, and I will move you ever onward in My unfailing plan to win the lost. Even though the Enemy will also make great gains, nevertheless, your goal is to win the lost.

62. His goal is to win the board, but as he tries to do so, you’ll be winning the captives and setting them free. And though at the very end he will think he has won‚ I will step in and say, “Game’s over!” as I rescue you who remain and bring you Home to Me.

63. So fear not! I will provide, I will guide, I will nourish, and I will win all whom I have planned to win in My great strategy. So go forth now and take your stand! The game has begun!

64. And remember as you go that nothing shall be impossible to you! As you know‚ My will now is for you to get out the message of Activated, to have the faith to claim and climb upon the highest places of the land! I will open doors for you that no man can shut. Stretch your faith, and know that the time has come for you to make yourself known and to claim that which is rightfully yours.

65. You have the greatest power of the universe behind you! You have the power to command doors to open and shut, to unleash that which has been hitherto leashed to you, and to leash that which fights against you. Unleash the power! Unleash your faith, and according to the circumstances I will unleash the power to accomplish what your faith has commanded. (End of message from Jesus.)

66. (Mama:) The Lord’s plug for Activated is unmistakable here. You can’t miss it! But there is also the related message regarding the need to openly align yourselves with Activated‚ in order to promote it as it should be promoted. There’s no way that we’re going to flood the world with the message of the Lord in the Activated products if you‚ our salesmen, don’t advertise, publicize, market, campaign for, talk about, and push them in every way possible! You can’t do that very well if you’re some independent organization, not directly related to the Family.

67. I can understand that there are some very unusual situations where the Lord might lead some Homes to operate in a more clandestine manner, without direct association with the Family, when there is no other way to accomplish the work in that particular sensitive or dangerous field. But overall, the Lord is stressing that you should openly associate yourselves with Activated, which means the Family. Probably one of the main reasons a Home would choose to work independent of the Family name would be for some kind of official recognition and especially support. However, if you read the preceding message carefully you’ll see that promoting Activated will be the key that will open doors that will supply your needs through the very System you’re winning. So if you’re distancing yourself from the Family when it’s not the Lord’s highest will, in an effort to win support, you might be losing in the long run by not winning the people who will support you big time in the years to come!

68. This is where faith comes into the picture. Don’t be short-sighted by thinking you’re going to protect your work and win the favor and support of the System by hiding your true identity‚ because the opposite—being obviously and boldly aligned with Activated (and hence the Family)—is what will, in most cases, be the key that will help you to win friends and supporters and put you in positions that will‚ with time, result in much better supply and protection. Please consider this message very seriously, and if you are in a situation in which you are not openly promoting Activated‚ then seek the Lord desperately to make sure you’re not missing the mark and won’t be sorry later. (For more on this subject, see “Activate the World‚ Part 1,” ML #3348:57-71, GN 943.)

More Intimacy with Our King!

69. Just when you think the Lord has outdone Himself with the goodness He has shown us, His intimate brides, He reveals yet another special blessing. His desire to give us everything we need becomes more and more obvious the more He talks to us. All we have to do is have faith to believe and receive.

70. (Jesus speaking:) I set before you a new open door, greater than any of the doors I’ve opened to you before. This is the open door to My palace. I give you the keys so that you may come and go freely, so that you might access My palace at any time of the day or night.

71. Within this palace lie My private bed­chambers. Though you’ve had access to Me and My bedchamber for some years, you will now be able to discover many more chambers and rooms full of Heavenly delights, for I have more than one bedchamber! For those of you who so desire‚ I open doors for you to love Me in new and deeper ways. I invite you to explore My palace, to have a look around, and to find and revel in wonders you have not conceived of before.

72. My home is your home. My palace is your palace. As My bride, My loyal, devoted and loving wife, you have the power to hold in your possession and lay claim to whatever you find within My palace that suits your fancy.

73. You want miracles? They’re there for you. You just have to seek them, find them, and take hold of them with faith. You want protection? Provision? Deliverance? Supply? ­Answers? Spiritual revelations? Supernatural under­standing? Mystical insight? Wisdom? Creativity? It’s all there for you, and then some! You just have to appropriate what you need and want. You must take the step to enter the open door I set before you and seek diligently within My palace for the treasures that are yours for the taking.

74. I have put the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. These keys open the door to My palace and to the many chambers and rooms inside. These keys open the treasures to you. You must learn to use the keys I have put in your hands. You must cultivate the power to rise above in your life if you are to walk through these doors. To walk through this door, use the keys in your hands; follow closely the guidelines I have laid out for you on how to use the keys and access the power I have given you. (See guidelines in “Rise Above,” ML #3317, and “Keys to the Kingdom,” ML #3318.) In addition, come to Me and ask Me for personal instruction on what you need to rise above in the course of each day. Keep checking in with Me daily and ask Me what you need to do that day‚ what will help you that day to learn to use the keys and access the power I have given you.

75. Take the treasures I long to give you and spare not, for I have so much—far beyond your imagination! You never need to feel guilty about taking all you want, even if you feel you don’t need it. Don’t worry that there won’t be enough left for someone else, because I always have more than enough for everyone. I’ve placed it in special corners and chambers here and there, so that those most desirous and to whom it would mean the most will find each particular treasure. Of course, these treasures are not meant solely for that individual—they’re meant to be shared, to be spread throughout your Family, and in many cases with the world as well.

76. So come, My brides. Walk in the door—the enormous double doors of My immense palace—and feast your eyes on all that is yours for the taking! Use the keys I have put in your hands; cultivate the power I have given you. Whatever you want, whatever you desire most from the realm of the spirit, is there for you. It is My pleasure to give it to you! (End of message from Jesus.)

Don’t Stop Now!

77. (Mama: ) The Lord understands that these last years have not been easy for you. He realizes you’ve been sorely tested. Here is a message that will help put those battles into per­spective. Once again‚ He compares the Navy SEALs and us. One of the reasons I think He makes this comparison is because the bravery, dedication, camaraderie, intense training, and risks taken by the SEALs or their special forces counterparts in other nations inspire respect and admiration. We should feel the same about our own comrades and the vocation we have ­chosen.

78. (Jesus speaking:) My precious brides, I have seen the battles that you’ve fought. I’ve seen the tests that you’ve endured. I’ve seen the faith that you’ve had to manifest to continue on in your fight and service to Me. This is all part of making you My chosen soldiers of the End—strong soldiers whom I can count on when the real battle begins. For these tests that you’re going through make you strong. And in the days ahead, when the Enemy comes forth in more power‚ I will ask you to stand stronger in the face of adversity‚ because of the weak faith of those who will come to you for help.

79. As the Navy SEALs are called upon to defend their country, to be the called-out ones for special battles, even so do I prepare you, My Navy SEALs of the Spirit, for the special missions that I will ask you to undertake. Now you see your training as routine, monotonous, and sometimes unnecessary. But I know the drills that are necessary to make you alert and prepared for the battles I will lead you into.

80. Are you weary of the battle and the fight? This is good‚ for this is when your spiritual muscles are strengthened, when you are tired and spent and yet you fight and fight and fight some more. Why did you join My army if you didn’t expect to fight battles? Some are falling by the wayside, but don’t let this dissuade you from pursuing the calling I have called you to. Let your faith be strengthened, not weakened. For your faith should not be in those around you, but in Me.

81. In the days ahead you will need greater faith—not so much for yourselves, but for ­others who have not the faith to receive My seeds of faith‚ those who loved Me, but not with all their hearts, minds, bodies and spirits. In those days, their faith will not have the stamina needed to endure the tests, but your faith will soar! There will be strong adversity, and you will see the manifestation of My power and anointing upon you.

82. This increased manifestation of faith will be because of your little steps of faithfulness now, for they will be multiplied an hundred­fold. Thank you for having believing faith. I will honor you in the days ahead. The honor will come because of the decisions of faith that you make now. Thank you for the steps of faith that you’ve made and continue to make. I love you! (End of message from Jesus.)

Home, Sweet Home!

83. (Mama: ) This next message touches on a subject that hasn’t yet been addressed in conjunc­tion with the keys to the Kingdom, but you’ll see that it’s paramount to the success of our outreach and winning the world.

84. (Jesus speaking:) My dears, this is a new day, and one that will astonish you with its brilliance. The new day is constantly being renewed, just as is the term “latter days.” This new day that you’re experiencing is the constant refilling of My Spirit in you in a greater measure, as the world grows darker and darker around you.

85. It’s not hard to perceive that the world is becoming more evil, and that wickedness is more and more acceptable and the norm. Movies are filled with violence. Young children are killing other children. Sodomy, drug abuse, oppression by violent crime and violent governments are all becoming normal and no longer cause a widening of the eyes.

86. Though darkness abounds, light will much more abound. The brightness of My love in the hearts and spirits‚ the eyes and smiles, the shining faces of My believers will shine greater and greater. So great will be the shine that people will be surprised. They will be drawn to My children as iron to a magnet, even if you don’t say a word. The love in your faces, the shine, the happiness you have will draw them unto you.

87. And then what? My desire is that in this era of action, you will begin to experience the action of My love in your hearts and lives in a greater measure than ever before. For as men and women are drawn to you‚ as they desire to know you, to know the source of this joy and love and happiness, it’s imperative that not just your countenance, not just your outward actions, not just your words‚ but that your inner life reflects the beauty of My Spirit just as much.

88. So I will do miracles for all of you in your personal lives. When people are drawn to you because of your smile and your counten­ance and your obvious happiness, I wish for them to find the same thing inside you. I wish that in getting to know you, they will get to know Me.

89. By this I mean that I wish for your Homes to become havens of peace, joy, and happiness. I wish for you to not only project these qualities when you’re out distributing literature, tapes, posters, or videos, or when you’re selling Activated subscriptions‚ or when you’re doing follow-up, or when you’re visiting someone, but in the day-to-day life of your Homes. I wish for there to be such an atmosphere of love, giving, understanding and unselfishness that as you take new ones into your Home‚ they will not be disappointed seeing your personal lacks, but instead they will grow closer to Me as they see the beautiful sample, on a day-to-day basis, of those who have given their lives to Me.

90. This sample of giving and loving is some­thing that you all know of, for you’ve read about it in many of My Letters to you, and your Queen Maria has talked with you about it in many Letters. It’s the sample that is shown and practiced in her Home. There is so much to do to spread My Words, to take care of My queen and king, and to take care of each other, that a spirit of sacrifice, giving, and yieldedness is preva­lent. One who enters this atmosphere is struck by the simple, peaceful life of giving, loving and yielding that prevails.

91. Of course, these people are human just like you all. They have their faults, failings‚ idio­syncrasies, doubts in themselves, trials and heart­breaks. They have their times of difficulty. They have their moments of yielding to the ­Enemy and having to fight him tooth and nail. They’re not perfect; they haven’t arrived.

92. But they have yielded to Me. Because of the nearness of the queen and king, because of hearing the many prayer requests from around the world, because of their desire to not fail Me, they’ve seen the great need to act in love and giving and impartiality. They’ve joined together in one heart, soul, mind, and yes, body‚ to fight the Enemy and spread My truth. They strive for unity, for giving and fighting together. Although there may be personality conflicts at times, the great need that is before them causes them to suppress indulgence in these, so that they’re willing to put all on the altar for Me, and continue with their eyes not on the problems but on My face.

93. My loves, I don’t wish to lift up the Home of the king and queen as a place that is high above all others. This is not the case. For you on the harvest fields also give much; you make great sacrifices, and you yield to Me. There are many of you who are just as dedicated, willing, loyal and yielded as My brides in the Home of the queen, and I love you just as much.

94. Yet in this Home there is a great push for yielded­ness as a body to do My will and to pull together toward the goal. This is what I wish for all My Family Homes‚ and which you can all attain in this era of greater miracles, greater anointing‚ enhanced faith, and greater ability to rise above. It’s imperative that My Family Homes exhibit this unity, love and sharing, because I will be bringing more and more of My lost sheep to you. They will be in your Homes. They will see your sample. They will partake of your spirit. And whose spirit do you want them to see? You don’t want them to partake of anything that is not of Me—any selfishness, bickering, lack of love, lack of giving, or lack of unity. You want them to experience all the posi­tive qualities I’ve given you—love, sharing, sacrificial giving, peace, harmony, and unity.

95. So this is one of the miracles that I will perform in your Homes. As you yield to My Spirit, with your enhanced gift of faith, your ability to rise above, and the keys to the Kingdom that I have now given you, you will have an increased ability to live in unity, love, sharing and harmony in your Homes. You will have more of My Spirit to do so! You will have more of the power of Heaven to do so! And your Homes will not just be places where you live and eat and take care of your children and take care of the things that are your own personal concerns, but they will be havens of peace, love and sweet harmony where I can bring My sheep to partake of My Spirit.

96. There will be such an atmosphere of love! There will be such understanding! There will be such giving! There will be such preferring of each other! There will be such a desire to see each one happy and fulfilled and having all they need.

97. My loves, don’t expect that this will happen overnight‚ but I extend this promise to you, be­cause it is so needed for My plan to continue. Your friends‚ sheep, contacts, relatives and acquaint­ances will be coming to you, as you reach out to them more and more, as you use the Activated materials‚ and as you’re faithful to follow My admonitions to follow up. And your Homes—the spirit and atmosphere and qualities of the spirit that they exhibit—are another tool that I wish to use in this time.

98. So reach out for these promises! Claim them for your Home, so that your Home can be the haven of peace and love that I have ordained it to be. Let it be that when people enter, they feel My Spirit. They feel it because in your inner lives, in your secret thoughts‚ in your interactions with your brothers and sisters, your motive is love. Your motive is to fulfill My command­ments to love one another.

99. Remember that I said, “By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, because ye have love one for another.” By this you will bear much fruit. By this you will see many added to your folds. By this you will see great expansion. By this you will see My promises of greater miracles come to pass. By this you will be amazed at all I will do to bless you, because you have obeyed!

100. As you obey and let My Spirit fill you and reign in your Homes‚ you will see the fulfillment of My promises of supply, healing, miracles, and greater expansion. All you have to do is let My Spirit reign. When problems come up, think, “What is the most loving, the most humble, the most giving, the most Spirit–filled thing I can do?” Because you’ve practiced asking Me everything, I will lead you in each instance. I will give you the greater ability to rise above any and all everyday problems, as you rest in My Spirit and let My Spirit fill you.

101. This may take some practice, but as you take a step, and then another, and then another, you will see My love fulfilled in you more each day. You will see changes all around you, but specifically you will see changes inside you.

102. These are often little choices you must make—sometimes things that no one knows about but Me and you—but the spirit that you carry will reflect these choices. The spirit of your Home will reflect the personal choices that you have made‚ as a Home, regarding giving, sharing and loving. So always choose these things, and rest on My promises to fulfill in you what I have said, and I will do it.

103. Trust, obey‚ believe, and act! And I will do My part to make your Homes the havens of peace and love that will be like nests for My new baby disciples to grow in. I love you! And I look forward to raising all these new baby birds in the nests of your Homes, together with you! Love, Jesus, your Daddy Birdie. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

104. (Mama:) In the early days of the Family, we were very aware of the power of the sample of our communal living. We knew if we could just get the sheep to “come and see‚” then our unity‚ love and sacrificial caring for one another would often be enough to dispel any doubts they might have about the existence of a God of love. Anything that disrupted our sample of happy communal living in those early years was looked upon as a serious breach in the spirit, a terrible and dangerous attack of the Enemy.

105. Unfortunately, things have changed, and many of our brethren seem to have lost the vision about how important our sample of living together in love and happiness is. This is sad, but true. I’ve heard many pitiful stories of resentment, bitterness, arguments‚ and lack of unity in our Homes. The CROs have reported that there’s a trend in some areas where Homes break up because the Home members can’t live together; then those same people get together with others, and with time their next Home also breaks up. This happens again and again. It’s a pattern that develops until many are left living in single–family Homes requesting exemptions to the Charter Home membership requirements. It’s because of selfishness and lack of love that many of you find it nearly impossible to live together with others.

106. This is a serious problem, and we need to fix it. We can’t have hungry people who are full of hope and looking for answers visit our Homes only to go away disappointed because what they read about in the Word or the Activated publications is not a reality in your lives. God will hold you responsible if you stumble His little ones with your lack of love and unity, your bickering and indifference. People want to see if you live what you preach. Do you?!

107. The power you need to “get back to our roots” of happy Heavenly Homes is found in the keys! As the Lord explained in the ­mess­age you just read‚ you can rise above with an in­creased ability to live in love and harmony in your Homes. He reinforced that in another mess­age He gave us on this point, saying, “I want My struggling children to know that they can have renewed hope for unity with the gifts I have given them, for many have lost faith that they can ever live in unity with some of their brethren. The rivers of disunity flow so deep that without the knowledge of this supernatural power, they will not even try to restore unity; they will simply con­tinue business as usual. But unity is one of the greatest and most far-reaching ­effects of these gifts, one that will bring with it many other fruits and blessings.” (End of message from Jesus)

108. So you can do it, dear Family. Will you try? Will you keep striving for unity? As you meditate on this message, check your heart and see where you stand and how your Home fares. Is your Home a haven of love, joy, and peace? Please make it so!

More on “Maria Shall Shine!”

109. The messages in this series foretell some almost scary situations that you’ll find yourselves in—ministries and happenings that will test your faith and push you to rise above as never before. I’m sure some of this is not easy for you to accept or grasp. Well, I don’t know if it will be much comfort to you, but I feel somewhat the same way about the things the Lord has said to me. I know what it’s like to have the Lord speak about your future, and as you look at yourself and your shortcomings you wonder, “Wow, how exactly is that going to happen?” Some of my channels received messages specifically for me or about my future ministry after the Feast. I figured you’d be interested in what the Lord had to say to me, since what I do naturally affects you too. So I’ll share one such message with you now.

110. (Jesus speaking: ) My queen of the End‚ how I have raised you and brought you along. You are as Esther, who was at first shy and timid, but who was willing to place herself in the king’s palace so that she might save her people. You gave yourself as a freewill offering so that the lost could be saved. You laid yourself and your pride and reputation on the altar to uphold the mantle of David, so that the Family could continue, so that the truth could be spread.

111. Now I have set the crown of the kingdom upon your head, and I give you a new anointing. I give you great wisdom, and you will take on the anointing of the full and complete queen that you are, that I have had you in the making to be for many years.

112. You will be My Endtime prophetess, and the words you speak will be crystal clear and will pierce many. Yet they will also protect you. They will preserve you. They will create an aura around you that will glow and pulsate, and this aura will be visible even to outsiders at times, when I wish for the effect of My Words spoken through you to carry more weight.

113. Darling, My eyes will see out through yours, and the burning of My heart will beat in yours. We will be one, and your King Peter will stand beside you, and with great wisdom, anointing and foresight will support you and lead your children alongside you. Do not fear or crouch back in the shadows, but revel in the new anointing, boldness, and courage that I have already begun to give you. Don’t say, “I’m shy.” Don’t say, “I can’t speak,” for in doing so, you limit My power a little bit each time. Say that I’m giving you victory. Say that I’m changing you. Say that I’m making you a new creature. Say that I’m fashioning you into the Endtime prophetess that David spoke of.

114. You will be given great power, great anointing, and great faith. You will no longer battle the things that you used to, because the anointing and mantle will settle over you and take you over. I will truly make you a new creature as you have longed, as you have prayed.

115. Up until now‚ you have depended on the gift of weakness and your desperation and deep desire and passionate love for Me to sustain you and your children. You have trusted that I would keep you and the Family within the hollow of My hands‚ that I would keep things under control, that I would give the Words needed to feed My flock, and that I would keep you out of harm’s way. I will continue to do this, My darling, but I will begin to use a new method, a new vehicle‚ a new anointing upon you.

116. For as times in the world change‚ so does the need for your anointing change. And while it has been fine for these many years for you to remain hidden in the shadows and to let the words of your lips and of Mine be spread across the world only through your pen and the ­missives which you have sent to My children, that time is changing. You will still send them your words and My Words on paper‚ but you will speak more abundantly, more prolifically. You will do so in person‚ and the time will even come when you will be set high on a rock, and many, many, many will see you and witness your anointing.

117. In the Last Days I will give the world many signs and wonders to counter those of the Enemy, the false Christ. You will be one of these signs, My Maria. You will speak to the nations and warn them. There will be times of hiding and secrecy, where you will conduct your worldwide Endtime army from caves and seclusion, but there will also be times when you will be set upon a hill, showing clearly that I the Lord, the God and Commander of My children, am not afraid to stand before the whole world. So I will send you, for you are the mouthpiece, the vessel, the chosen. I will send you and your king as a team for many of these missions.

118. Does it sound awesome to you? In reality, the awesomeness that you feel toward these Words now will be dwarfed by the awe that you will feel when you see how I am empowering and enabling you to do My bidding. All you have to worry about is saying yes. All you have to be concerned with is remaining close by My side, day in and day out.

119. Now are the days of personal preparation for you, My queen. The Family has had their years of preparation, and you have been prepared as their queen for the different role in which you and your king will lead the Family into the era of action. But now you enter a time of further personal preparation—prepara­tion for your role as the Endtime prophetess. All the goods, all the knowledge, all the love, all the fire, all the inspiration, all the passion, all the conviction, all the desire‚ all the tears, all the joys‚ are already stored within you, for I put the seed of each quality in your heart when I formed you by My hand in Heaven. Now the seeds are activated with the gift of faith, and each of these qualities will begin to sprout, grow, bloom and blossom. They will shoot forth at different rates, but all will be brought to full maturity at the time appointed.

120. Don’t worry about it now, Darling. Just close your eyes, relax, and lie back. Let Me prepare you, and you just concentrate on feeding the sheep I have given you. Only concern yourself with this, for I will prepare you unto the day appointed‚ so that as your tender heart desires, you may be everything that I’m asking of you. I love you‚ My queen. (End of message from Jesus.)

121. (Mama:) So you see, the Lord is putting challenges before all of us. But the same can be said to you that He said to me: Don’t worry. Just concentrate on what you know your Husband wants you to do—feed His sheep, lie with Him in the bed of love‚ feast on His Word, trust Him with your life‚ heart and soul. As you do your best to be obedient and yielded to His every bidding, He will continue with the personal preparation that you also need for the Endtime. We’re in this together. We can make it together, as we trust the Lord!

With prayer‚ admiration and love‚

Mama

(Quotes included in the text of this GN from unpublished messages:)

Besides the free gift of salvation I offer all men, never before has humanity had such a precious gift of the keys. But though you will be as powerhouses, be not unaware that there will yet be pitfalls, tests, and trials along the way. But I walk with you and gladly assist you. Leave all fear behind, precious warriors, and all memories of failure, for you will win this war. This is My promise to you!

You don’t yet have the capacity to understand and comprehend the complete power of the keys, and it’s not necessary that you know everything about them at this time. But what is important is that day by day‚ step by step, moment by moment, you use these keys in the ways I show you to use them.

My dears, this is a most critical time. There are many smaller dramas being played out, but only you have the center stage. So use it wisely, for you can’t totally comprehend or visualize what is occurring in this beautiful dance. It’s just one more step on the path back Home.

You cannot be what you will become until you are not what you are now. So I ask you to release your past so that you can take hold of the full force of the power of the future!

My dear loves, you’ll become as streams of light that become stronger and more potent each new day. So don’t become attached to any way of being, any one mode or mannerism‚ or any thought pattern that is too narrow-minded, for I wish to expand your minds. Know that the limits you were so certain about yesterday will forever change and extend. Don’t put Me or My power in a box, for no box can contain Me or My powers!

With these keys in your hands and put to use, you will find that our times of lovemaking will be more breathtaking and fantastic than ever before. We will please each other in ways you haven’t yet dreamed of! I will be more to you than your most outrageous dreams. You will see a side of My beauty and power that you haven’t yet seen. I will catch you up in My arms and twirl you in a whirlwind of love as we make passionate, uninhibited, liberated love, in a way you’ve never experienced before. I will satisfy you as never before, your senses keenly sharpened. You will feel My love in the places of your heart, mind, body and soul that can only come to life when you use these keys. You’ll be amazed, and praise and thankfulness will fill your hearts as never before.

I will take your yielded hearts and in them ignite a passion for Me that you have not known before! With these keys of the Kingdom that I have given you, you may enter the realm of what you consider fantasy, and pull down the reality of all you desire.

Feel the warmth of My sacred flame of love as it brushes over your whole body and fills you with My seeds that will become the fruit of the Kingdom. My aura of love will surround you. I am nearer than near; I am here with you. Reach out and touch Me and use the keys that I’ve given you. I will respond to you as I have never before.

You must take the keys that I’ve given you and validate them in your own heart and life, and seek the power I have promised. Don’t be lazy. Go forth and preach the Gospel. Do your part to learn to use and access this power so that you can draw people to Me and fulfill My plan.

More on the Keys!

What the Future Holds, Part 4

By MariaMaria #576 CM 3357 5/01

Dear Family‚

1. God bless you, dear loves! I pray this series of GNs continues to be a source of inspiration for you. With so much going on in your Homes and fields, with all your normal day-to–day responsibilities and the continued emphasis on the Activated push and the preparation for the start of the boards, I’m sure you’re plenty busy. When you’re battling or feeling weary, the words from our dear Husband in this series can be just the uplift and boost you need to help you to pull away from the burdens of everyday life and see things more from the Heavenly perspective. It’s won­derful that our fascinating Answer Man has told us so much about what we can look forward to and the marvelous victories that are ours as we rise above and put the keys of the Kingdom to good use for His glory.

Greater Works Than These

Shall You Do!

2. (Jesus speaking:) I spoke much about faith when I was on Earth with My disciples. It was the gift they were least exercised in. Many were familiar with prayer. They had heard the words of the prophets that were before Me. But few knew the meaning of real faith—the quiet assurance of My living presence and power that could be awakened within them simply by calling on My Name, by believing My Words.

3. My disciples could hardly un­der­stand it. They got excited when I first sent them out two by two, and they came back saying, “In Your Name, even the devils were subject unto us!” They’d been used to traveling around with Me, to seeing Me do the miracles, but I had to show them it wasn’t just Me, but that through My power they could do miracles too. And so I sent them out with nothing, just to prove to them what I was talking about—and they lacked for ­nothing.

4. While they were with Me, they were tempted to look at My popularity as the source of supply. “Well‚ of course everyone wants to have Jesus as their guest, so we get dinner every night. We never know where it’s going to come from, but we know it’s going to be there.” But when I sent them out on their own, they suddenly discovered that even then they lacked for ­nothing.

5. Those years My disciples spent with Me were like a journey of discovery for them, discovering just where their faith could take them. And then their faith was tried again when they found themselves on their own after My death. I comforted their hearts after My resurrection‚ showing Myself to them and letting them know I was still with them, instructing them to wait in Jerusalem for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

6. Well, you know the rest of the story‚ how the Holy Spirit came down on the day of Pentecost, and how I anointed My disciples to perform miracles before the whole world as a witness that I was still with them, and that My power and mantle now rested on them.

7. Since then, many of My disciples through the centuries have forsaken that mantle and lost that anointing of power. Yes, there have been some who have stood head and shoulders above their brethren, performing miracles and speaking to men’s hearts through the power of My Spirit, but it has been limited, as the church was largely buried in the traditions and rudiments of this world, as My children gradually began to depend more on carnal means, as they forgot Me and served the god of this world.

8. Not until this day have I been able to again pour forth My Spirit in such a large and complete measure. Not until this day have there been those whose hearts and minds are so open to receive it, whose spirits thirst for it‚ suck for it, and pull it down with such ardency and fervor. Today is this scripture once again fulfilled in your ears, that I have poured out My Spirit upon all flesh, so that your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men see visions, your old men dream dreams, and you shall pour forth My Words and speak them before all the world!

9. How I have loved these times of communion with you. It’s as if I’m walking beside My disciples all over again. I can speak to you, teach you‚ answer your questions‚ and reveal mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven that have been unspoken since the time I walked the Earth. Of course, I’ve been here all this time, speaking to the hearts of My servants, the prophets, preachers‚ and evangelists who have carried My Words and My salvation to people throughout the ages. But not until now has it been possible for Me to be so completely involved in every aspect of what I’m asking My witnesses, My disciples to do. So I feel as if I’m walking with My original disciples once again—My special, handpicked‚ chosen ones, those who have chosen to choose Me—only it’s even better, because the communication that you and I have in the spirit is even more personal, intimate and complete.

10. The words which I spoke to My original disciples will take on new meaning for you. The truths and miracles I promised them have been largely ignored and forgotten by My faithless children, those who think of them only as pretty pictures, as pleasant words for a Sunday sermon. But to you they will be real; they’ll be as if I’m walking next to you, as I walked next to My disciples. You will hear My voice telling you personally, “Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and if you drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt you.”

11. You’ll thrill to the promises I give when I say, “These signs shall follow them that believe. They shall lay hands on the sick‚ and they shall recover. All the things that I have done, that I have showed you‚ greater things than these shall ye do, because I go to My Father, and I will give you the keys to unlock all the powers of Heaven and Earth.”

12. You will hear My voice of instruction when you’re puzzled. “Master, we have rebuked this demon in Your Name, but it has not departed.” And I will answer and explain to you, “This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

13. All that I did for My children in the days I walked with them on Earth I will do for you‚ and more. All the words I spoke to them I will speak to you, and many more. All the miracles I performed will you perform, for I am with you. All the miracles My disciples performed will you perform, for they are helping you. And many more miracles and greater works shall be done in My Name through you, so that the world will marvel and say, “Truly there has not been such a great manifestation of supernatural power since time began!”

14. And when they perceive that you are ignorant and unlearned men in the ways and theologies and doctrines and rudiments of this world, they will marvel all the more, and realize that you have walked with Me, just as My disciples once walked with Me. And so My Name will be glorified. And even when they kill you‚ My power will again be with you, and you will rise again when I return for you, My beloved children, to claim you as My Own, and to proclaim you as My Bride before all the world in our great wedding celebration that will signal the beginning of an entirely new era—no longer the era of greater faith, but an era of new reality, an era of My Kingdom being established on Earth‚ an era when every eye shall see Me‚ and every knee shall bow to My Name, and when you will reign by My side as My beloved, as My bride, over the peoples of Earth for whom you have proven your love and given your lives. (End of message from Jesus)

Bring in the Sheep

And Train Them!

15. (Mama: ) Helping us to keep the vision of the shortness of time is obviously a priority for the Lord. He talks so much about it! This next message reminds us of the need to win and train active members, those who are committed to our cause but don’t actually live in our Homes, as they’ll be a crucial part of our work and a key to our survival in the time of the AC’s reign. That might seem like a long ways away, so you wonder, “Why make such a big deal of it today?” But the Lord knows and is trying His hardest to convince us that there’s not really much time left, especially when you consider all we have to do. We need to take full advantage of these days of relative peace to win those who are to be our comrades in arms in this spiritual warfare. We will need sold-out, versatile, trained laborers from many walks of life, and we need to find‚ win and prepare them today. Today is the day of salvation for these‚ our fellow laborers!

16. (Jesus speaking:) Dark clouds are forming over the world day by day. The future is ominous for all those who are not in tune with My Spirit. But My children are not ignorant of what the future holds and what will come upon the world‚ because they seek Me, and therefore are the only ones who will truly have peace and faith in the midst of the oppression and tribulation that will soon come upon the Earth.

17. The rich anti-Christ men of power are uniting to rule the world. Greed and materialism are making greater and greater inroads throughout the world. Through manipu­la­tion of the money, these men of wealth are amassing and stockpiling large fortunes, amounts that boggle the mind of man, fortunes that they will use to take full control of the world’s economies, and there­by have power over all men, except those of faith.

18. Once they’ve completed their mission, which the Antichrist is directing from behind the scenes‚ the AC himself will come on the scene as the financial genius, doing miracles with the economy. These rich men will readily turn over the power they have garnered through their wealth, because the AC will offer them greater riches; and he will fulfill his promise to increase their riches, but only temporarily. Eventually he will want full power and control, and will begin to squeeze out the other evil men and take control of the world.

19. There will be increased wars and rumors of wars. There will be great in­stability in the money markets of the world, unprecedented ups and downs in the ­major economies. These things will cause fear and insecurity in the peoples of the world, which will cause them to look for a financial superman to stop the uncertainty. And when the AC does just that, they will be willing to give him full control and power over their lives.

20. There now remains a window of time for you, My Family, to reach out to the hungry sheep and win and strengthen them, before fear and chaos come upon the world. Use this time judiciously, as I’m counting on your spiritual strength and renewed faith and dedication to both bring in and train My sheep before the coming dark days when confusion and spiritual blindness will be upon the world. During the time of darkness, you will need the help of those you will win and train today, so you will be able to continue to help those of My children still lost in the darkness.

21. Receive and believe this vision, and let it compel you to witness and win and train‚ for the days when you have the full freedom to do so are short. I’ve given you peace and favor in many lands right now so that you can use Activated and follow-up programs to win and train many more members. But be not deceived by this time of relative peace, for the Enemy knows you and what you’re up to. I am the only One Who holds him back from attacking you.

22. Pray fervently for Me to keep the Enemy at bay. Your prayers and love for the lost are what are containing him right now. If you don’t pray‚ and if you don’t obey by giving your all to reach the lost and train them, I will not be able to hold the Devil back. It is your prayers and faithfulness to obey that will deter the Enemy’s plans for as long as possible.

23. Do you believe this? You must! It is the truth. This is an awesome responsibility that I’ve given to the Family and it takes great faith to believe it, as I know you feel so small and insignificant. But you know in your hearts that faith and taking up your cross and following Me daily are not small things; they are great things!—And as long as you go forth in faith and do the things that I’m asking you to do, you will bring many into the Kingdom and My service before the full power of the Antichrist is unleashed upon the whole world.

24. This is My main commission to you in these next years: bring in and train My sheep‚ prepare them for the battles ahead. Your ranks must increase with strong soldiers ready to die for the truth of God—those who will not be deceived by the AC when he comes on the scene and the world follows him; those who will have faith to buck the System and continue to live by faith, knowing that I will continue to provide for them and lead them in every aspect of their lives.

25. There is so much to do‚ My darlings. Be not weary in well doing, for in due season you will reap. I know the battle has been long and hard and will continue to be so for some time to come, but My grace is sufficient for you, and I will not give you more than you’re able to bear. Remember that My yoke is easy and My burden is light—if you stay close by My side and let Me whisper in your ear each step of the way.

26. Expect many miracles—miracles of souls won, new disciples, increased finances, healing, deliver­ances, and a mighty outpouring of My Spirit in every area of your lives! Let your faith be fully awakened‚ for all the power of Heaven has been opened to you and is at your command. Command Me concerning the works of My hands! Exercise your faith in My Word and My promises to you. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

Shoes from Heaven‚

Only the Beginning

27. (Mama:) We will all begin to see more miracles, both great and small, as we ask the Lord for them and expect to see Him come through for us. He is probably already doing unexpected things in your life to help increase your faith, as He did for one of our Home members, as explained below.

28. (Channel explains:) Just now the Lord re­minded me of a miracle He did for me recently. It was an especially busy time for me. I had wanted to get some new shoes, as the ones that I had were starting to fall apart, but there was so much to do that I didn’t have time to go shopping for shoes. During this time I went to a store to pick up some empty boxes we needed. There were some empty shoeboxes in the pile‚ and after getting home and looking through them, I found one of them wasn’t empty! It contained a pair of shoes, and they happened to be just my size. And they weren’t just my size, but the color and style I like as well. In fact, they were just the type of shoes that I would have liked to buy‚ but they would’ve been too expensive for me!

29. He reminded me of another miracle that happened during one of the Feast meetings: A couple of days earlier I had gone on a walk and had accidentally gotten a few thorns in my hand. I was able to get most of them out, but one was still stuck in there. The next morning I tried again to get it out, but it was very deep and I couldn’t. During the meeting it was bothering me, so I started to scratch it and the thorn just popped right out! Ah, it felt so good after that. That happened just as we were hearing the Lord say He would give us access to greater power.

30. Jesus, there must be some significance to why You reminded me of these things just now as I was about to hear from You.

31. (Jesus speaking:) Yes, the day of miracles is not past, and I have allowed these things to happen in your life to prove to you that I am the God of miracles. I have always done miracles, but many of them have not been the showy or obvious type. But hasn’t it been a miracle how I’ve provided for you and for all My Family these many years? And haven’t I kept and blessed and prospered My Family as well? I’ve done countless miracles.

32. Now you’re about to enter a time when I will do greater miracles for you. Just as I supplied those shoes for you in a miraculous way‚ and in a way that you knew they were from My hand, so will I supply for My Family like never before. And they will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is I Who have done these miracles and provided for them. And as you experienced a touch of My miraculous healing, so will many others experience the same, for I will do obvious miracles of healing to show My love and power.

33. These are two of the things that My Family needs the most—miracles of supply and healing. And just as I have done these miracles for you recently, so will I do for My Family, but in a much greater way. So have faith. Reach out and receive this gift of greater faith that I’m giving you. Expect miracles, and you will see them come to pass. (End of message from Jesus)

The Endtime Pentecost

34. (Mama:) If you feel a little lacking in enthu­siasm for witnessing, this next prophecy will help you. The Lord has very big plans for you, so don’t let the seemingly humdrum routine of everyday wit­ness­ing dull your vision for what’s to come. We all have had so much training‚ and as you’ll read‚ that training will be put to good use, since the Lord has some pretty awe­some challenges ahead!

35. (Jesus speaking:) It is My will to redefine for the world what a Christian, a follower of Me, is like, and what a disciple does. The Family will once again become a city set on a hill for all to see. The darkness will recoil, and the heat of My flame will protect you. I have given you the keys to open Heaven and unleash all My power. I have given you the keys to every heart—to allow Me to enter and claim souls for My eternal Kingdom. I have also given you keys to My strong tower, so that you may run into it and be safe in time of trouble.

36. You will be strong and do exploits in the coming time of tribulation. I have preserved My Queen Maria and King Peter for such a time as this. I have bestowed upon you faith to carry My banner throughout the world, to proclaim My love‚ to display a sample of what My Endtime followers should be. I am putting you, My Family, on the spot‚ on display before the whole world, to shine with My light and truth for all to see.

37. The Enemy is very close to attaining his goal—being revealed as the savior of the world system. He is obtaining the kingdom by flatteries. His mastery of manipulation of the masses through the hypnotic tools of technology and mass entertainment have accomplished far more than the terror and conquering might used in the past. He has refined his skills, polished his approach, and conditioned the masses to accept whatever plan he has to perpetuate their peaceful enjoyment of the fruits of the System.

38. You are aware of his devices‚ and you know that his light is a false light. For the light that is in the world is darkness—and how great that darkness now is! I will pour out new messages exposing the Enemy, commenting on his plans, and revealing his dark secrets. I will anoint you as I anointed Elisha, who confounded his enemies by his knowledge of their plans and machinations.

Text box:

2 Kings 6:8-13:

Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying‚ In such and such a place shall be my camp.

And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down.

And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice.

Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not show me which of us is for the king of Israel?

And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel‚ telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bed­chamber.

And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him‚ saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.

[Note: The Lord delivered Elisha and the inhabi­tants of the city by temporarily blinding the Syrian army. The enemy soldiers were captured, kindly fed, and then sent home. See also “Elisha’s Secret Army,” Treasures, pg.649-651.]

39. In like manner you will counsel and warn many important anti-Antichrist (AAC) leaders of the world who seek to remain free from that which is to come upon the whole world. I will give you ­favor amongst some of the rich and powerful—those who are My sheep who I have preserved in spite of their “successes” and privileges—as they have a heart for their people, and attempt to fulfill their responsibilities in sincerity. They will seek you out for advice and encouragement. I will install many of My Family in high places‚ as I did with Joseph and Daniel.

40. Pray for these doors, and look for those which I will open, for now is the time to influence and inspire those who will resist the coming re­gime. I will anoint your queen and king in these areas‚ and will bring them more into the forefront. I have assigned a powerful contingent of angels to guard them and protect them in those times when they will minister more publicly. I will also teach you how to use the keys to hide yourselves from trouble and cause you to cease to be seen, or even disappear when necessary.

41. Be open to those in power who will favor you. I have trusted you with the keys of My Kingdom, and as you prove faithful, I will inspire others to trust you with the keys of their kingdoms. I am the King of kings, and the hearts of these kings are in My hand to turn them whithersoever I will—and in this case I will turn them toward you, for you are being made ready to shoulder this responsibility. Did not I call you My ambassadors? Many will recognize the anointing and uniform and tools you bear, and will regard you highly for My sake.

42. Take none of this acclaim and recognition upon yourselves, or you will fall and cause much hurt. But I am trusting you to live My Words, to stay humble and close to Me, to ask Me everything, and to obey My directions and leadings. Do as your queen and king have done. Follow their sample of humility and love for Me and the lost. Then will the Enemy be confounded, My Endtime plan fulfilled, and My sheep gathered for My coming.

43. You are those who have partaken of My Endtime Pentecost. You are those who will bear My seal in your foreheads. I have empowered you for this hour, My loves. (End of message from Jesus)

Accomplish the Most You Can

While You Can

44. (Mama: ) I want to remind you that the prophecies in this series were received by people in different units. As I explained in Part 1, I gave no specific instruction regarding what to receive from the Lord, other than His encouragement to the channels that He had new information to give about the future. The channels went from reading the “Keys to the Kingdom” Letter to receive privately at their computers the message the Lord had for each of them. Each person received his or her message alone with the Lord, being unaware of what others were receiving. So the repetition of the main points and the thread of similarity that runs through the prophecies are very significant, and I hope that encourages your faith and helps you to believe the promises and visions in these marvelous messages!

45. Here is a missive from Heaven with a challenge to make the most of each day. Redeem the time! There is so much to do.

46. (Jesus speaking:) These days ahead are indeed very special days‚ as I have given you greater power in hearing from Me. You need to practice it more and become accustomed to using it more easily. I have much to tell you about the future. I have much in store for all My wonderful Family, you who have dedicated your lives to Me, you who have forsaken all, given your all. Now is your hour of destiny. You have gone into the world for My Name’s sake. You have sacrificed much. You have given all. And now I wish to pour down upon you as never before. I wish to show you great and mighty things which you know not—things beyond your wildest imagination and dreams!

47. Hold on to Me as I take you through new doors, to new horizons, to new and greater victories. The Time of the End does approach, but it is yet a while before Hell is released in all its fury. These are still times of very serious training for you‚ as the hour approaches when you will need to have mas­tered all the gifts that I have bestowed on you.

48. Continue to look for My signs of the times, for they are indeed around you. As you continue to seek, you will find more and more of them. The signs will become clearer and more distinct, and you will understand more how the pieces fall into place. Continue to study My Word and My revelations. Continue to keep tabs on the news, for I will reveal to you more and more of what is going on behind the scenes.

49. There is still a little time before great catastrophe strikes. Use this time wisely and to the full in seeking Me and becoming more attuned to My guidance and the whispers of My will. Put Me to the test at this time. Let your faith be stretched. Let it grow. There is much that I desire to do through My children. As you step out upon the water, I will be there to uphold you, but you must take the steps.

50. Things will begin to get worse, so keep your guard up. Don’t become complacent. The Mideast is in turmoil, with much death and destruction, the ravages of bullets, bombs and missiles, and the cries of the widowed and the orphaned. You stand on the verge of the era of the wars of the Antichrist, but there will still be time for you to continue with your many ministries of reaching My lost, feeding My sheep, and getting the Activated program going full blast. Things will continue to build up gradually to the great explosion where all Hell is let loose and the days of tribulation begin upon the Earth.

51. Use this time the best you can to accomplish the most you can while you still have means of good communication, means of getting My Word into print and distributed. Keep going forward with the programs you’ve initiated. Keep seeking Me as you help to bring My plans to com­pletion. (End of message from Jesus.)

You’ve Got the Gifts!

52. (Mama:) Someone in our Home felt unsettled after the Feast, wondering if she had indeed received the treasures that the Lord poured forth to the Family. I’m sure she’s not the only one who worried about that. What the Lord did is so magnificent, and we all feel so small and unworthy. Also, there’s little immediate visible evidence or proof that you do possess such gifts. You don’t have any keys in your hand that you can see, so you have to take that by faith. You have to accept that you do have the enhanced gift of faith that the Lord promised‚ even though initially you don’t feel any differently. But as time goes on, there will be signs and wonders confirming the Lord’s Words. Be encouraged by this next message‚ in which the Lord explains clearly that if you wanted the gifts He offered you at the Feast, you do have them.

53. (Jesus speaking:) All that partook of the Feast, who wanted the gifts I had for them during this time, received them, whether they saw them manifested or felt their presence or not. I didn’t need to manifest it in a dramatic way. My Word is sufficient. I have said it and so it is true. If you desired it, opened your heart to it, and wanted it‚ whether you feel different or not, you have it, and it will be manifested to you in all its splendor in My time.

54. As things start to happen, the power, anointing, and miracles will be there. I promised I would not leave you comfortless. Do you think that during the darkest days on Earth I would leave you, My leaders of the people‚ the standard-bearers, the Endtime warriors, the examples, the voices crying in the wilderness, the fighters until the End, the shepherds‚ the martyrs, the exposers of evil, the champions, the righters of wrong‚ the heroes of faith, the soul winners, the captive-freers, the reapers, the protectors, the gatherers of the lost, the freedom fighters, My brides, without all that you need? Do you think I would leave you without the protection and provision that you need to do the job?

55. That protection and provision are in the keys I have given; access the codes and you will have it. But you say, “How do I access the codes?” The answer is simple: Ask and you will receive. And in some cases as things get worse, you will not even need to ask‚ for the miracles you need will happen right before your eyes. All you need to do is go forward, embracing the mindset that there are no impossibilities to you.

56. Listen to My whispers and obey, and I will do the rest. I will make the way. I will open the doors. I will do the healing. I will raise the dead. I will send fire out of your mouth. I will release you from your captors. And the list goes on! There are no impossibilities, for you have the power. Your part is to seek Me desperately; to be open and flexible and fully yielded to My will; and to hear from Me. When you have clearly established My will, then all you have to do is obey, and I will do the rest. When you have been faithful to fulfill the instructions I have given you, you will be able to rest assured that whatever happens is My doing and I will cause it to glorify Me.

57. The access code is listening and obeying. Do as I say. You will hear your instructions as you spend time with Me in the bed of love, as we lie in each other’s arms experiencing great passion and love; when I whisper in your ear as we walk together in the cool of the evening in the garden of your heart; when you rise up early and you lift your eyes unto the hills; when you lie upon your bed and are still and commune with Me; when you call to remem­brance My song in your heart in the night seasons; when you hear the rushing of the wild wind; when My lovingkindness is upon you in the day; or if you are in the heat of battle, when you fall upon Me in desperation. These are the times I will give you your instructions. Then all you need to do is obey, to go forward‚ doing what I have told you.

58. “And it shall come to pass in the Last Days, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood‚ and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood‚ before that great and notable day of My return. And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Today these words are fulfilled in you, and shall come to pass.

59. These dreams, visions, and prophecies you will receive are not to be taken lightly, as if they were a figment of your imagination. When you feel you are receiving instruction from Me from a means other than the printed word which I have given‚ you should pray desper­ately and ask Me for confirmations‚ as well as seek the counsel of others and further signs from the other ways to know My will. Be sensitive to My Spirit, knowing that your instructions may come in the most unexpected ways.

60. You have been exercised in the gift of hearing from Me for years now. You’ve honed your gift, and now you’ll be glad you did. Can’t you see how it’s all working together so you can use the keys and access the power?

61. In My life on Earth My faith was tested, and I had to prove it by putting it into action, exercising it, acting on it. You have faith that I speak to you. Now prove it. Test it by acting on it, even if it seems impossible. For now you have the power. I’ve given it to you to be able to do your job. So go for it! Do it! Expect miracles! (End of message from Jesus.)

Miracles Divine!

62. (Mama: ) It’s not yet part of our nature to immediately remember and call on the power the Lord has given us through the keys. We need to work on changing our first reactions, so we don’t automatically operate the way we did before. The Lord doesn’t want us to go ­merrily along, forgetting all about the keys‚ and therefore not taking advantage of everything that is rightfully ours—His promises, the power to do greater miracles and rise above, and the access we have to all the power of Heaven! He has given many mess­ages about these things because He wants to keep this constantly in our thoughts. We should be helping each other remember that things are different for us now after Feast 2001. We can do that by reminding each other about the keys, claiming the power of the keys in our prayers, testifying of how we are learning to rise above, etc.

63. As we understand more clearly what these gifts mean to each of us as individuals and we appropriate these promises personally‚ it’s going to get pretty exciting! The fascinating experiences that we will have, as the Lord works on our behalf as never before, will be tremendously satisfying and exhilarating. To learn the art of rising above and how to harness the power of the keys is a project worth setting our minds to, and though there’s a lot to learn and certainly it’s an ongoing process‚ we will never regret the time and effort we put toward studying the Word on the subject, committing key promises to memory, hearing from our Husband specifically about how this vision applies to us personally, and then following through on what He tells us to do. If we do that, we will see results!

64. I earnestly pray that as you read the GNs in this series that you will clearly see what this new power means for you personally! You—that’s right‚ Y-O–U—will be performing these miracles and witnessing with supernatural power and doing great exploits if you will do what the Lord says and learn to activate your enhanced gift of faith and access all the power of Heaven. Of course, there are things we still need to learn. The Lord is still working on us and preparing us, we are still learning what He expects of us and what is our part in all this‚ our steps of obedience, but you have God’s good guarantees that these promises will be fulfilled in you if you’ll just hang on, obey and believe!

65. (Jesus speaking:) I have much to pour out to you‚ My loves, My yielded channels. The only thing that limits My pouring out is your ability to receive. I speak plainly now, for the time to understand My mysteries is at hand. I have opened the books and now is the time for you to receive and to prepare. For the Evil One is angry, because he knows that his time is short. But it is given unto you, My beloved brides, to know the future‚ so that you will not be caught unaware and thus be snared in his traps.

66. I also warn you in advance so that you can reach the nations and reap this last great harvest before the days of darkness descend upon the Earth. For in that day you will stand as lights in the midst of great darkness, and people will flock to you seeking the answers that I will give. It is not given unto man to know the specific times, save only the Son of God; yet if I will, I will show you, My brides, these things. Though I will not show you everything‚ yet I will prepare you so that you will be able to warn others and to prepare for that great and terrible day.

67. There have been false prophets that have been saying, “Peace and safety; for where is the sign of His coming?” I say now that you will both see and believe that it is the Time of the End and that My coming is imminent. There will be no more room for doubt for My children, because the signs will be painted clearly and the sides will be clearly defined. Each one will have to choose which side they will be on for this last great battle. The main battle will be for the souls of those who are in the middle, those who have not yet decided, those who are lost and trapped in the bondage of the System.

68. You will do great signs and ­wonders—but for what purpose? Only to destroy the forces of Satan? No, for if that were the only reason, then I would remove you, My beloved brides, from this Earth at once and rain down fire upon the Evil One and his forces and end his reign once and for all. I’m allowing this Endtime showdown so that each one will have a chance to decide whom they will follow‚ and thus divide the wheat from the tares. It is for this reason, to be a witness, that I will empower you with all the power of Heaven.

69. Think of a dam and all the water that’s behind it. If you were to make a hole in that dam at the bottom, you would see a little trickle of water coming out, but unseen, behind that little trickle you would have the force and weight of all the water that is stored behind the dam. You can access a little bit of the power with the tiny hole, some power is generated from the little trickle, but think of how much more there could be if you were to enlarge the hole! If you were to open the floodgates at the bottom, you would have much more power!

70. Your faith is like the hole, and the greater the faith, the more power is generated. Right now, each of you must exercise your faith muscles. You must put Me to the test. In some way you must enlarge that “hole in the dam.”

71. When you think of great faith, what comes to mind? Is it the missionaries of the past, the prophets of old, Myself and the miracles of My disciples? That’s just the problem. Most people look at the past, and that’s where their faith is—in the past. They don’t see that the same power—in fact‚ greater power—is here right now!

72. Put Me to the test and see if I will not answer! Yet do not seek for answers and miracles with an, “Okay, let’s see if He can do it” attitude, or just seeking to put on a show, for I will not bless this. If you wish to see the miracles that I’ve promised, if you want to become the vessels that I can pour My power through, then you must start right here and now by seeking Me and having no will of your own. For how can I pour through a vessel if I don’t have full control over it?

73. This is why I have stressed so much that you must lean totally upon Me‚ yielding fully to Me. Did you think that I just didn’t want you to be strong so that others would look at you and laugh at you for being weak? No‚ it was to prepare you for the future, for now! I’ve promised these things for now, and only those who are yielding their all to Me, who have found the strength of weakness, who are so desperate with Me that they won’t make a move on their own without confirmation from Me‚ will be able to do these greater works. For if I can’t trust you now to commit just your human powers and your own strength to Me, then how can I possibly trust you with the awesome powers of Heaven and My angelic forces?

74. It all starts now with the little things, the things that seem so unimport­ant to you, obedience in the little things. These are the small beginnings that will blossom into the powers of the future. And when I say future, it’s not far off! You must start now by seeking Me desperately to show you if something is holding you back from performing My greater works, if you’re still lacking in some area, and then how you can receive My strength in order to fight these weaknesses.

75. As you follow Me step by step, I will bring you along. You’ll begin to see the miracles happening before your eyes, and you’ll know that it’s nothing of yourself, for you will have fully accepted My strength in place of your own weakness. When you call down fire from Heaven and people look at you with fear and wonderment, it will not make you think that you are the one who possesses this power; you will give all the glory to Me, and this will draw others to Me.

76. So you see, it’s all starting now—not some­time in the future‚ but now! This is when you will begin to do those greater works and miracles, but it will take break­ings to make you into the vessel that I can use. I will have to keep you humble, too, for once you’ve passed one test, you have the tendency to feel like you’ve made it. But know that the reason for all that you’re going through now is so that you will be able to perform My mighty works; so that when I call you into the spotlight you will be as a seasoned warrior who doesn’t let the praise of the crowds go to his head, but gives the credit to his Lord and Leader.

77. You wonder what some of these greater works are that I have promised to do through you? You know of My great love for you, and that I, your Lord and Protector, have promised great power to keep you from the attacks of the Evil One and his minions. But this is not all that I will give you. I will allow you to see and feel Me like never before. You will know that I am in you, and you in Me. As I saw My Father and His angels, so will you. They will come and minister unto you. You will receive your calling in that day from My Own hand, and you will know that I am the One Who has called you.

78. You’ve read how I called My prophets of old through visions and dreams, and how they heard My voice and talked with Me. So will you, for I will always be at your side. Once you’ve strengthened your faith, your eyes of the spirit will become ­stronger and you’ll be able to see past the veil into the realm of My Spirit as if it were right beside you, which it is. You’ll be able to glimpse My angelic forces preparing to do battle on your behalf. You’ll also be able to see the forces of the Enemy. Yet don’t let this frighten you, for I am greater than them all! This should stir you up to see the battle, to know that you are indeed fighting a war.

79. I will also allow you to see into the hearts and minds of men, to know if they are of Me. You have a measure of this now with the gift of discernment, but I will magnify this gift to where you will be able to know the choices men will make. Whatsoever your heart desires to know I will show you, not only in that day‚ but right here and now.

80. Yet in order to receive this gift of awesome knowledge‚ your faith must increase. Start now by asking Me things you wish to know. Stretch the bounds of your present faith. Do those things that I show you, and you’ll begin to rise above what you thought impossible. Don’t use this gift foolishly, but take it as a very serious weapon and learn all the ins and outs, for you will need to know how to wield the gifts of My Spirit accurately.

81. The greater your faith, the greater I am able to pour down My power. The closer the connection, the more real I will be to you. The greater your weakness, the greater My strength will be through you. This is what I’ve been preparing you for since the dawn of time. This is your destiny—you upon whom the ends of the Earth are come.

82. Take this seriously and cherish your birthright. Look beyond the confines of the flesh and its weak limitations and see My power. For you are only the conduit, the channel, the vessel that I can pour My power through‚ and the purer the metal the conduit is made of, the faster and easier the power can flow through it. So be a conduit of My power. Let Me live in you and take complete control. You will see things you’ve only dreamed of—visions, glimpses into My Heavenly realm, and demonstrations of My power. All this is yours for the taking if you will yield to Me, accept My calling in your life‚ and have the faith of a little child. (End of message from Jesus.)

83. (Jesus speaking:) Take the stand of faith, My beloved ones‚ for your hour is almost upon you—the hour for which I brought you into this world. This is your hour! Your future is here! Fear not, for I have brought you to the Kingdom for this hour. This is your destiny! Now I want to reveal some of it to you specifically, to give you the vision for what lies ahead for you. I want to encourage you for your tasks ahead.

84. You will perform miracles through this power of Heaven that I have bestowed on you! I will give each of you your special anointing for the particular kinds of miracle power that I have appointed you for. Some will heal. Others will have special protection powers in which you will supernaturally be hidden from the detection of your enemies. Others will have supernatural powers of supply and multiplication. You will have the same powers I had while I was on Earth, but with greater magnitude, and you will use them in a greater manner, and they will be witnessed by greater multitudes.

85. The greatest miracle power will be in your ability to reach into the hearts of the lost and the spiritually destitute with My love‚ My Words, and My witness. You will shine with a brilliance from within that will be very apparent to My lost and ­hungry sheep, but will be hidden from the eyes of your enemies. You will walk among the crowds in this manner and be able to attract and win those of My lost children without being detected by the Antichrist authorities.

86. When you speak under this anointing, your words will glow in their hearts, and they will actually feel this glow physically in their hearts. It will be so dark in the world‚ and the forces of darkness so oppressing, that this special power of your speech will be necessary to reach and break through to the hearts of My lost children. They will testify of this to you, that their hearts feel that special glow and touch at your speaking to them, and this will increase their faith in the truth and power of your witness of My love, and cause them to receive Me and My love and salvation. This will be one of your greatest special witnessing powers. You will speak with the authority with which I spoke to the crowds‚ and they will know that you have been with Me and you speak My Words.

87. Now some words of encouragement for My Queen Maria: You will shine, My dearest one! I will bestow upon you the special gift that you’ve been patiently waiting for with steadfast faith. I’ve promised you that I would pour My Spirit down upon you when the time is right for you to receive My “Maria of the End special enhanced gift of prophecy,” which I have reserved especially for you, to be given only at the time appointed. This will be more, much more, than you presently have. You have faithfully‚ humbly, and patiently waited‚ and I have rejoiced at your faith to wait, showing Me how much you trust Me and My promises, even though you had limited evidence of it.

88. But the time appointed is quickly drawing nigh. So ready yourself, My beloved one, for your special queenly infilling of My spirit of prophecy, which is reserved for you alone as My prophetess of the End, My Maria of the End. This will be a tremendous enhancement of the gift you now have. For you will indeed stand before the multitudes, and you will shine, and you will speak My Words as I speak them through you, with that same glow and power of speech that will penetrate the hearts of My lost sheep—those searching for the truth and the answers to their heartache.

89. My Words through you will enlighten them with their brightness and the brilliance of My love for them. Their hearts will leap with joy and bear witness that you speak My Own Words to them, and they will flock to you to be fed and comforted and receive guidance, as sheep to their shepherdess. (End of message from Jesus.)

90. (Mama:) Praise our wonderful Husband and Lover! Besides reading these beautiful messages and letting them inspire and encourage you, the Lord also gives you some “homework.” Several times He mentions the need to seek Him, to commune with Him‚ or to pray about certain aspects of your life. Please, dear ones, don’t neglect to follow through on this. We have heard that it is a general weak area in Homes, and probably with most individuals as well, that when there is a portion of a GN—either in direct prophecy or a request from Peter or me—suggesting that you hear from the Lord about something, either privately or as a Home, many fail to do so. I can understand why you might not feel you have time, but there’s no telling what tremendous instruction and insight—in fact, keys to success, prosperity and blessing—you’re missing out on just because you don’t take the time to hear specifically from the Lord.

91. Here are some excerpts from this GN:

(Jesus speaking: ) Listen to My whispers and obey, and I will do the rest. I will make the way. I will open the doors. I will do the healing. I will raise the dead. I will send fire out of your mouth. I will release you from your captors. And the list goes on! There are no impossibilities, for you have the power. Your part is to seek Me desperately; to be open and flexible and fully yielded to My will; and to hear from Me. When you have clearly established My will, then all you have to do is obey, and I will do the rest….

If you wish to see the miracles that I’ve promised, if you want to become the vessels that I can pour My power through, then you must start right here and now by seeking Me and having no will of your own….

You must start now by seeking Me desperately to show you if something is holding you back from performing My greater works‚ if you’re still lacking in some area‚ and then how you can receive My strength in order to fight these weaknesses….

In order to receive this gift of awesome knowledge, your faith must increase. Start now by asking Me things you wish to know. Stretch the bounds of your present faith. Do those things that I show you, and you’ll begin to rise above what you thought impossible. Don’t use this gift foolishly, but take it as a very serious weapon and learn all the ins and outs, for you will need to know how to wield the gifts of My Spirit accurately.

92. (Mama:) The Lord doesn’t ask you to pray about these things simply because He wants to add one more thing to your to-do list. This is not a “make-work” pro­ject. There is real value to this “homework” assignment‚ and if you don’t follow through you’ll sadly miss out on valuable counsel that could make a big difference in your life or Home. He wouldn’t ask you to pray about these things if there wasn’t a real need and a good reason. So please do all you can to find the time. Thank you so much!

93. What a life we lead! Not only do we know Jesus, our Husband and Lover‚ more intimately than most people have ever known Him, but we also have the great privilege of hearing from Him in tremendous abundance, and now we have these new spiritual gifts. We’re billionaires in the spirit, and we need to take good care of our riches by investing our time and attention well, and having the right priorities. Let’s continue to put Jesus first in every­thing we do, to love Him with all our hearts, to read and believe His Word, to see the prophecies He gives as special love letters from Him to each of us as individuals, and to sacrifice in whatever way He asks of us so we can reach the world!

94. We need to let the keys work for us so we won’t disappoint the Lord and the people who depend on us to feed them. Let’s take up the challenge to be all we can be, so we can activate the world! Let’s open up our lives and Homes to a greater Family, an expanded church. Let’s win and take care of our outside members. Onward and upward, dear loves! We’re headed for the Promised Land and we’re going to take as many people with us as possible! Let’s do it! Power to the people with the keys!

Love and prayers in our Miracle Man,

Mama

Quotes added to the text, from unpublished messages:

Awaken each day in joyful anticipation and with great expectancy. Come before Me with praise and thanksgiving each new day and claim the powers that I have promised to you. Each moment‚ each thought, each event is of vast importance‚ for the treasures of new wisdom, new insights, powers of all Heaven and over Hell are new gifts that I will pour forth at an astonishing rate, and you must be open to receive them.

Allow this precious, rare gift to open closed doors and compartments. Behind these doors are all the powers of the universe!

Now that these keys are yours, your language will change‚ your thought patterns and forms become different, and the old ways will pass away until you are refined and it seems to you that all that was before is but a vague dream. New areas of your heart and mind and even of the storehouses of Heaven are now activated. Nothing will be the same now that you possess the underlying powers of the universe.

More on the Keys!

What the Future Holds, Part 5

By MariaMaria #578 CM 3359 6/01

Dear Family,

1. God bless you! I love you so very much! This is the last in this series of GNs containing mess­ages received after Feast 2001. The Lord certainly put a banquet before us of encouragement, insight‚ direction‚ and challenge, with plenty of details we didn’t know before! I pray this ­series has been an inspiration to you! It’s definitely one of my favorites, and I’ve enjoyed hearing these messages over and over again!

2. Please try to make time in the days to come to reread these GNs as much as needed to fully grasp the marvelous truths contained therein. Only by fully understanding these revelations can you incorporate them into your daily life, habits, mindset‚ reactions and expectations. Someone in one of our WS units commented that he was so thrilled with one of the GNs in this series that he had already read it eight times, busy as he was! That’s a good picture and application of the verse, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2Tim. 2:15). Praise the Lord!

You Have New Power to Confront

Greater Evil—Nurture Your Faith!

3. I find the messages about End­time events particularly challenging, as well as crucial to our keeping the vision. This first prophecy emphasizes how important it is for each of us to nurture our faith, so we’ll be ready for the role we will play in the End. Right now, the information in this prophecy might sound pretty far–fetched to some of you‚ but time will continue to speed by, and before we know it, we’ll be living these events and actually seeing them come to pass! Then we’ll be thankful we believed and took the Lord’s admonitions to heart, as we’ll be part of the fulfillment of these awesome promises!

4. (Jesus speaking:) When you received the keys‚ I rained down power from on high on you—power that will not just be for your everyday lives, but power that is to be used as your strength, your life, your everything. This is the power that now runs through your veins. You’ve been endowed with much more of My supernatural strength and the spirit of My love. You have all the power of God on your side now through the keys to the Kingdom‚ and this is the lifeblood that flows through your veins. You now are endowed with the ­secret weapons of My Spirit. I’ve given you the secret to unlocking the vaults of Heaven, and you now have at your command any and every thing you might need. If you ask for it, it will be yours. I can now give you this gift because you have dedicated your hearts to Me and have loved Me like never before.

5. You now have the greatest weapons that have ever been unleashed on this Earth at your command! You now have the most powerful weapons at the ready, for you’ve proven yourselves worthy and loyal. You’ve stuck through the tests and the trying of your faith, and this is your reward:

6. In the years to come, the world is going to go through thousands of upheavals and rumblings in economies, in governments, in people’s lives and hearts. They’re going to go insane with worry, for the world will be in such chaos that there will be none to turn to except Me. Their hearts will be torn and brutally suppressed by the powers that will rise in an attempt to salvage this world. But I tell you now, as sure as My promises will not fail, this world is coming to an end.

7. They have invoked the last protocol before the rise of the Antichrist, and it’s only a matter of time before his rise and revelation. He has taken his throne, and even now has been crowned as the king of this world. The leaders and the rulers of this world have bowed at his feet.

Text box:

8. Question: Lord, can You please tell us what it means that they’ve invoked the last protocol before the rise of the Antichrist? We’d like to know who “they” are and we’d especially like to know what this protocol is, if You could please tell us more.

9. (Jesus speaking:) “They” are the evil forces, both the human ones and the evil spiritual forces who lead and guide them.

10. As for “protocol,” it has a number of meanings. It is an agreement among these evil forces for how they will attempt to bring the world into sub­jugation, a plan for dominance‚ and a code of conduct and behavior among these evil ones, a way they behave to bring down leaders and their nations or economies‚ until they are ready to receive any savior, even the false ­messiah.

11. In saying they have invoked this last protocol‚ I say that these evil ones have called upon the great Evil One‚ the Prince of Darkness himself, to set in motion the final part of his plan for world domi­nation. They have agreed together upon it, and will now go forth to try to put it into effect.

12. In saying this, I do not indicate that you stand on the verge of the last seven years, or that the Tribulation is at the gates. But this time period draws closer, for the Enemy has committed himself to a specific timetable now, and so have I. (End of message from Jesus.)

13. Question: Lord, in that same paragraph You say that the Antichrist has already been crowned as the king of this world and that the leaders and rulers of the world have bowed at his feet. When we think of the Antichrist being crowned king, we think of his reign and the beginning of the last seven years. But You just indicated that hadn’t begun yet. For one thing, You said it hadn’t‚ and for another, we haven’t seen the Covenant, which You said wouldn’t be a secret to us.

14. So can You please explain more about how he could be crowned king and how the rulers of the world would bow down at his feet without anyone knowing about it? Some world leaders might do so‚ but others don’t seem as likely. For example, George W. Bush is reportedly a good Christian and professes his faith in You all the time. It doesn’t seem like he would bow down to the Antichrist, or it seems he’d at least make some sort of public ruckus about it.

15. (Jesus speaking:) The Antichrist is a king in waiting. He has indeed been crowned, but has not assumed full control over his kingdom, for he is still preparing it and consolidating it, getting ready for his reign. He wields much power of the world even now, but it is not absolute among men, as it will be in the days to come. So his full kingdom and reign are yet to come.

16. When I speak of the leaders of this world, they are often different than those you would imagine. There are political leaders, leaders of nations, who are very apparent‚ but such leaders come and go at the whims of those behind the scenes, who are the real leaders and ­rulers I speak of. Those who control industries‚ the media, finances and economies, and the politics of nations, wielding great but unseen influence and authority, are those of whom I mainly speak of here. Although there are some leaders of nations who know of the Antichrist and his plans, many are but puppets, whether they see their strings and controlling wires or not, and those who pull their strings are the real leaders and rulers. (End of message from Jesus.)

End of text box

17. You haven’t seen this yet, for it has taken place secretly and in the hidden chambers of the Antichrist government. But the decisions have been made and war has been declared on the righteous, and Satan’s power has been loosed in great measure against the people of this world. Even now does the Antichrist take steps to prepare the world for his revelation. Even now does the world shake and rumble with his whims, as it will in the years to come. He has set up his government like one who has been elected but has not been sworn into office yet. He selects his officials and formulates his policies, though this is hidden from the sight of men for now. But he will not be long in hiding. He will come to the fore shortly; you will see his ugly head arise‚ and Hell will rule over this world. Even now his forces are being marshaled, and you will see the fruits of this in every country on Earth.

18. Why do you think I pour out to you in such abundance? Why do you think the Heavens have been opened to you? Why do you think I am bestowing on you more power than has ever been known to My children since the days of creation till now?—Because you will need this greater power in the days to come, for you will confront greater evil. The Antichrist will soon rise before the nations and take control.

19. His fulfillment is a little time in coming‚ but he will rise soon. Then all doubt will be erased from your mind, for you will see him rise to power and command the troops of this world into battle. You will see his armies go forth to crush those who are his enemies—those whom the world regards as evil or oppressors. He does this to attain a false air of right­eous­ness‚ but he will bring peace to this world—seeking to upstage My Own peace. Though fake, it will bring a measure of stability to the world—but not until this world has trembled under his hand‚ and not until many things are broken down before his face.

20. The governments you see in power now are but a façade. There is a greater and more powerful work behind these mere puppets who will soon be removed when they’re proven incapable of ruling and taking responsibility into their hands and governing with dignity. You will soon see the fulfillment of this first step. Govern­ments will begin to be eroded and will crumble into confusion and corruption, as they’re set up for the fall.

21. Wars are but a few of the plagues of humanity. Also during this time, due to the increased Satanic activity, the Earth will render up her foulest stenches, and vol­canoes and earthquakes will terrorize this world as never before. “Earthquakes in diverse places” will be fulfilled in yet a greater way before your very eyes. Places that have been peaceful and have not felt the power of this Earth’s forces for ages will suddenly be confused and thrown into chaos.

22. Now is the time when not only has your greatest anointing been released, but also the greatest evil has been released on this world‚ and great wars and famines and pestilences will ravage the Earth.

23. Do you not see it? Do you not see the beginnings of such sorrows every day through the news media? Do you not see their effect and potential? They will come as surely as the Word of God cannot lie. A great evil has been awakened, for many of the forces of Satan have come down to Earth to make war with the saints and with them that dwell on the Earth. Now begins a time of fierce spiritual battle between the good and the bad. Now is the time when the righteous will stand up and defend the weak‚ and will be a voice for the oppressed.

24. The wheels of the future have been set in motion. Until now I withheld the forces of Satan, because I knew you were not fully prepared for their unleashing. But now have I given them permission to proceed, for I have equipped you, My children, with more power than ever, and you are able to withstand the greatest wickedness of all time. You are being prepared and trained, so that I might send you into the arena to face the forces of night face-to-face, sword-to-sword, for the time draws near.

25. I will unleash Satan and his evil upon this Earth to fulfill the final stage of his plans. At that time I will cease from holding back his destructive powers upon the Earth and upon living creatures, except for My children. Your power will be unleashed also, that My plans might be fulfilled. Great signs and wonders will you do in the defense of right and My Name! You will proclaim My Name as never before, ashamed of nothing. Many of those who rise against you will be ground into powder and dust, which the wind will carry to the far corners of the Earth as a warning to those who fight against you. And even if you should fall by captivity or by sword, I will use you as a greater and more powerful witness than ever.

26. Be not deceived; the forces of ­Satan will stop at nothing to destroy you. For this reason, it is imperative that you don the new armor and take up the new weapons and anointing I have given you. There is no remedy for the wicked, but there is defense for the righteous. You, My brides, are called to lead this final great assault against the forces of evil on this Earth. This responsibility has been placed in your hands, and I now give you an even brighter torch of My Word to bear before you.

27. Your Queen Maria will shine as never before. A flaming prophetess shall she be—powerful and filled with My Spirit! Kings will bend to her demands. Nations will bow at your feet for the words that I give to you, and the light of My love will be shed upon all as never before.

28. It’s not possible now to fathom the power that I pour upon you. It’s not poss­ible to see the greatness of My Word that will be poured forth and engulf the world. Every corner of the world will hear of My Name, and never before will the Gospel have been preached as it will be in these next years. Great will be the noise of your triumphs and your victories over Satan and the forces of darkness! Great, great miracles will be performed at My hand through My Children of the End!

29. You are indeed the final show of this Earth’s history. Have you wondered when the fulfillment of these things would come to pass? Has your heart been despondent and heavy with discouragement? No longer, My loves. Rise to the occasion! Rise to shout the song of victory before the nations! No longer will you be downtrodden and trampled upon. I will raise you up as a power on this Earth, as I have promised, and no man will by any means prevail against you. You will be as bright lights in the darkness; you will be cherished and treasured for the light you bring.

30. Those who try to snuff out your light will be condemned by Me. Those who touch you will know that by touching you they are touching Me, and they will reap swift judgments for their wiles against you. I will see to it that no man touches you without just recompense. I will see to it, like never before, that you are victorious. I will see to it that your name is spread abroad as never before. The name of the Family, the Children of David, or the children of Maria and Peter, as you will become known, will be spread across the oceans and the seas, and great will be the noise of your accomplishments.

31. What you have seen up until this day has been a pea by comparison to the gigantic snowball of My power that will take hold of you and thrust you forward like never before! Have you had a problem seeing My hand? Have you felt like you were going nowhere? No more, My brides. No more will this lack of vision rest upon you as a dark cloud of despair. You will be living the Scriptures’ most profound prophecies, and among those who know My Word there will be no question as to who is the anointed for this era. All will know that the Children of David are the Children of the End, even if they only mutter about it secretly amongst themselves. All will know that this is the last and greatest manifestation of My power on this Earth before I crush and bring to naught Satan’s plans.

32. Do you believe this? Can you see it? Trust Me for the era of greater miracles! You may not see miracles immediately‚ but as you grow into this armor you will begin to see these miracles. Be not dismayed if you can’t walk on water tomorrow; don’t give up, for tomorrow may not be the day for it. But the day may be next week‚ or next month, or very soon.

33. Learn all you can, and dig as deeply into My Word as you can, because the era of greater works has begun, and you are in it! You are among the most privileged of all people to walk this Earth, for you’ve been given the anointing to perform these greater works.

34. I tell you these things not to discourage you, but to encourage your faith if you don’t see immediate progress and fire-from-the-sky miracles. Know that you do have such power‚ but it awaits its perfect time to be revealed. Your light will shine as never before, even if you don’t see great miracles taking place immediately. I will build your faith, precept upon precept, until you are strong enough to call down fire from Heaven, or manna, or rain, or withhold the rain‚ as the need may be.

35. As you gain faith, so will you gain power before Me. The key is your faith. As it grows, so will the manifestations grow as you learn to call down ever greater mir­acles.

36. So begin today to ask Me how I will give you the victorious power of My faith. Ask Me to explain to you what your weaknesses are‚ and how you can defeat them through the power of My Spirit. Today is the day of action! Today is the day of your salvation! Your redemption draws nigh. Today is the power loosed, the greatest power on Earth! You’ve been given the gift, and now you’re learning how to use it.

37. Begin today to invest time in strengthening your faith so I can work through you. If you’re doubting or unsure, bury yourself in the faith-building words I have given on the subject, and believe. That will be your key. The moment you believe without a shadow of a doubt‚ there will be nothing impossible to you. The moment you’ve expunged from your mind the notion that it can’t be done, there will be no end to what can be done. Work today to achieve this place of full faith.

38. I will pour out My Spirit upon you like never before, and you will be filled with My faith! Nurture that faith, and there find greater strength to do greater works. Faith will be the key to all these miracles I have spoken of—faith to believe that, “Yes, I can through Christ,” “Yes, there are no limits to Him,” “Yes, there is no mountain that cannot be moved through a-grain-of-mustard-seed faith.” When this faith flows through your veins‚ there will be no end to the power that you will have available to you.

39. Start today, that the miracles might flow from your hands to reach the nations with My message of hope and salvation. Today is the day to ground yourself deeply in the faith that I have given you. Today is the day of strengthening for the miracles that will be bestowed upon those who have the faith to receive them.

40. Faith is your key to all the secrets of the universe and the power thereof. Seek it diligently, for when it is found, unlimited power will be yours. Faith comes from My Words, and it is nurtured by belief, commitment and trust. It is also given as a gift to those who ask‚ and is again nurtured by all these things, as well as the Word. Let nothing steal away your faith. The Devil will try very hard to steal away your faith. Resist his attacks with all your being. Keep the faith. Resist all attempts by Satan to extinguish your flame. Rise above these attacks and hold on to your faith, for it is your life! (End of message from Jesus.)

41. (Mama:) Please take heed to the Lord’s plea to dive into the Word, to strengthen your faith‚ to find out what your weaknesses are so you can grow in those areas. We have been given this gift of enhanced faith, but obviously we need to do our part to nurture it and help it to grow. As we do the things the Lord is asking of us, a growth of faith‚ a deepening of our awareness of Him, and an undeniable conviction about the power we have through Him will be born within us. We have to work at growing in faith. It’s not just going to happen effortlessly. We have to let the Lord have His way in our life, and we have to want with all our hearts that increased power that comes through great faith. Please do your part! Obey! Create a vacuum! Study the Word! Now is the time to devote some serious time to preparing and strengthening your faith!

Act on Your Faith

—Use the Keys Now!

42. You can’t help but notice the recurring theme in the messages of this series about the need for us to put our faith into action. Acting on our faith is one of the ways we guard ourselves against falling into the pit of impossibilities—giving place to the thought that “it’s impossible.” This was a key point in the Letter “Nothing Is Impossible,” in which the Lord said:

43. “Now is the time when you must begin stepping out and exercising your gift of faith to a greater degree by putting it into action.… Step out and prove there are no impossibilities to a man or woman who depends on the power of God! Stretch your faith to greater measures. Take greater leaps of faith every day and defy any and all impossibilities that get in your way” (ML #3316:44.3, GN 920).

44. Here is more insight into this important spiritual principle. If we want to lay hold on the tremendous spiritual power that is rightfully ours, then we need to claim it, believe in it, and act on it!

45. (Jesus speaking:) Your future is as bright as these promises that I’ve given to you. And how bright will these promises shine? That’s up to you and your faith. As you step out by faith and exercise your faith, you will increase the power of these words to you. These words‚ My promises, might seem like only a tiny light right now, but I promise that this light will grow brighter and brighter as you do your part. I know that you want this light to shine brightly in your life. I’ve given you the keys and now you must do your part.

46. What is your part‚ you ask? The first step is simply to believe—not just to believe that you’ll have these powers someday, but that you have them today. For that’s what I’ve done—I’ve given them to you today. I know that this is no small thing to believe that you have unlimited access to all of the powers of Heaven, but that’s what I’ve promised‚ and that’s what I’ve done. Once you fully believe this in your heart‚ nothing wavering, the power of the light will be increased.

47. But it’s not enough to just believe My promise; you must also act upon it. Put Me to the test! Step out on the water! See if these things are true. Test Me! Test your keys! For it is only as you step out on the water and put Me and the keys to the test that I can pour down My full power and anointing upon you. I’ve given you the keys, but it takes this stepping out upon the water to fully release their power that I have given you.

48. Don’t hesitate and don’t wait! The time is now to begin stepping out on the water and putting Me and these promises to the test. I’ve given you greater openness to My truth, which will help to increase your faith. So don’t hesitate to act, for if you hesitate, the Enemy will seep in with his doubts and lies, and it will be difficult to have full faith in all of the promises that I’ve given to you. Don’t let go of these keys that I’ve given to you; use them now while they’re hot in your hand so that you can begin to experience their full power and anointing on your life.

49. You live in the era of action, and now that you have this powerful weapon, the keys to the weapon arsenal that you need to complete this mission, it’s up to you to step out and go forward in full faith, knowing that nothing can stand in your way. You should ask Me each day, “What obstacles can I overcome today? What difficulties can be solved? What miracles can be performed?” I will show you how to use the keys as you ask these questions. And as you use the keys to unlock the arsenal door, you’ll be amazed and overwhelmed by the power that I’ve given you! This power will blow away those obstacles, it will cause you to overcome those difficulties‚ and you will do miracles!

50. So don’t hesitate to put your keys into action. Pray and ask Me right now how to use the keys, and follow through on My instructions. As you use the keys, My power will be unleashed and you will grow in faith. And as you grow in faith, these powers will be multiplied, and you will see that these things are true and that I have helped you to overcome. (End of message from Jesus)

Giving All the Glory to God

51. (Mama:) In light of the awesome power and gifts that the Lord has blessed us with, there could be a tendency to begin thinking pretty highly of ourselves. But we must remain humble and obedient. Our loving Husband has warned us numerous times in this series about the dangers of pride, of getting lifted up, or of taking credit to ourselves. We need to stay meek and weak in ourselves, continue to show love to one another and the lost, and constantly give all the credit to the Lord! In this next message the Lord is talking specifically about Peter and me, but the principles apply to you as well.

52. (Jesus speaking:) I am able to trust My Queen Maria and King Peter with such powerful gifts because of their great, great love for Me, and because of their great faith. By Me, kings and queens rule. I ordain who will rule‚ but how they rule is then largely up to them. I give kingdoms into the hands of men and women to rule for a time, and the welfare of their kingdoms rests with them. Much depends on the choices the rulers make, and sad to say, very few of those who I would like to use to rule in righteousness choose to do so. The heart of man is proud and selfish and unloving, attributes which are not of Me‚ and few ­rulers are able to resist the temptations of power.

53. But I have not found it so with My Queen Maria and King Peter. They are both rulers after My Own heart. So it is that I am able to entrust them with such power­ful gifts as I have bestowed upon them and the Family now. Because of their faithfulness to lead and guide and teach My children aright, I am able to also entrust the rest of the Family with these gifts—as many as have the faith to reach out and receive them. Most rulers seek to control, to retain power themselves, but My Queen Maria and King Peter seek only to share and to give and to see others used of Me. In bestowing these gifts on all My Endtime children of David, I am, in fact, granting Maria and Peter one of the desires of their hearts and rewarding them according to their faith.

54. Did I not say that it would be done to each of you according to your faith? As by one man’s faith many are made right­eous, by the faith of these two‚ many are empowered. I bestow these gifts according to the faith and desires of your queen and king, and I can trust the Family to use them wisely and well because I can trust these two to lead the Family wisely and well in the use of these gifts.

55. My queen and king will indeed lead their people to do greater works for Me than have ever been done before. But this will not be done by them thrusting themselves into the limelight with great fanfare, as is the custom with most rulers and leaders. My queen and king will continue to rule as they always have—in lowliness, humility‚ meekness and weakness of the flesh—that all may see and all may know that it is still I Who work in them and through them, and that all they are and have is only because of Me. My queen and king will not rule according to the ways of man‚ but according to My ways. So shall they go places no others have gone before and succeed where others, who seemed more gifted or charismatic or powerful, failed.

56. Because of their great love for the kingdom—those of the Family and those who will yet be gathered into My Endtime Family—I will bless and prosper their kingdom and cause it to flourish and grow. Because of their great faith in their followers’ love for Me and connection with Me‚ I will be able to use their followers in greater ways. Just as I said that I would raise up many little Davids, I now say that I will raise up many little Marias and many little Peters. And have I not raised up many little Davids? Have I not poured out My Spirit on David’s children and given them a measure of his spirit and a measure of his anointing and gifts? So shall I now raise up many little Marias and many little ­Peters by sharing a measure of their anointings and gifts with those who choose to give their all in order to follow Me closely and become all that I want and need them to be. Because My queen and king have not sought to control, but rather have wisely chosen to share the responsibilities of running the kingdom, I am now able to share their anointings and gifts. Again, this is according to their desires and faith.

57. Many will see the sample of My queen and king, and will be inspired to call out to Me for the gifts that their queen and king have: great love for Me, great love for every Family member, and great love for the lost; great faith in Me and great faith in Me in others; humility, meekness and lowliness of heart that gives Me plenty of room to have My way and work My will; a deep hunger for My Words, My seeds, and the things of the spirit that enables them to live above the trials and temptations of the flesh; dedication and loyalty to Me and My Kingdom, and a singleness of heart and mind that keeps the Heavenly vision fresh and alive. So shall My Endtime Children of David be led aright, so shall they learn to avail themselves of the power I now bestow upon them, and so shall they fulfill My will in this era of action. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

Go Forth to Conquer

In the Name of Activated!

58. (Mama: ) The Activated program has been stressed repeatedly this last year in various GNs. The Lord has a lot to say on the subject, which is understandable as it’s a key factor in our future progress! The Lord knows you have a lot on your minds and that you’re busy, so the surest way to keep you focused on Activated and to remind you of its importance is through repetition. Some people don’t like repetition‚ maybe because they feel it’s condescending, as if to insinuate they didn’t get the point the first time around. But there shouldn’t be any kind of negative connotation attached to this kind of repetition. Like I said, knowing how busy you are, it’s necessary to keep bringing up the priority issues. Other­wise, it’s human nature to be totally occupied with whatever is happening at the moment. We can’t really afford to just be propelled along rather aimlessly by the events of the day. If we’re to have the impact we need to have on the world in the next years‚ we must do it through the Activated materials and gaining outside members.

59. The emphasis on Activated is being handled much the same as Dad’s emphasis on the poster push, in that he published Letter after Letter on the subject. It was practically all that was on his mind for the longest time, because he knew it was the priority witnessing method that the Lord was ordaining for that time. Now the same can be said of the Activated program. So please don’t just skim or skip altogether the messages on this topic because you think, “Oh, I already know that!” They’re important! Please read them carefully and pray about them.

60. In this next message it is again made clear that the establishment of the Activated program and our outside members and greater church is a key to our success in the future. We sure have a lot to do to make this happen! You might get tired of hearing warning after warning about the shortness of time, but undoubtedly the Lord knows we need this repetition and emphasis if we are to do the works of Him that sent us while it is day, for the night comes when no man can work.

61. (Spirit being speaking:) There is a sound of rushing waters. The rushing becomes louder until it becomes a roar. The roar is the roar of the lost souls who cry out from the four corners of the Earth for the words of David, for the words of his children who hold the truth this world is in desperate need of.

62. “The time is ready,” cry the angels of the End! “The time is ready,” they cry! For the cry of the needy and the cry of the destitute have come up into the ear of our King and He cannot deny their plea any longer. They cry unto Him‚ “How long, O Lord, how long? Our souls long to be free from oppression! Feed us words of truth, for we die from the lies of the Evil One and no one seeks to save us!”

63. (Jesus speaking:) I will save them! I the Lord, the God of all flesh, hear the cries of My children, and I will save them. I will save them through giving them the truth through these, My soldiers of the Endtime, that they may be freed from the bondage of the Enemy.

64. I have set the wheels in motion! I am raising up My voice, Queen Maria. She will lead her people and those who follow them through the maze of the Endtime, against the forces of evil who seek to defeat the forces of righteousness. Fear not, for I lead your queen and king, and I lead you. You will weave through the lines of those who oppose you, and none will be able to defeat you. My Maria holds My banner high—the banner of My truth, My Word—and no one or nothing will prevail against it! So fear not, My little ones, for truth will triumph over evil, and righteousness will cover the Earth once again. You must not doubt.

65. These days of righteousness will not come until the time appointed. In the meantime, there will be many dark nights and many dark days. But fear not, for I am with you. I am going to lead you on to final victory. You must not be shaken by what will take place, or by what you will see, or what you will experience. You must keep your eyes on the final goal.

66. Evildoers will wax worse and worse. Much more evil will become apparent; such as you have never seen. You will be shocked. But, My loves, marvel not at the evil that will prosper, but rather marvel at the fact that the time draws near for you to raise your voices on My behalf to defeat and destroy the forces of darkness. You approach the time when you will stand up and be counted on My behalf as never before.

67. First I must set your new foundation. I must establish your work through Activated. I must publish glad tidings throughout all the Earth. Then sudden destruction will come, and you will rise up and shine in the night of this world. Your queen will shine! She will lead you and the many who will choose to be called by your name.

68. Go forth to conquer on My behalf in the name of Activated, in the name of My Word. Work now while it is day, for the night draws near. Diligently tend your flocks, both in the Family and in the world. Tend to the flock in the Family through going forward with the board structure and establishing it throughout My Kingdom. And publish glad tidings through Activated establish My Words through the Activated desks‚ and prepare in your hearts by ex­pand­ing your faith.

69. Then will the light of My Family shine brightly in the midst of gross darkness, and you will become a voice crying in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord‚ for He comes for His children!” You will shine as never before!

70. Work now, for the time comes when you will not be able to work as you are. The night comes upon the Earth. Pour out! Establish the churches! Prepare for the time when you will be a mighty voice sweeping the Earth as never before! (End of message from Jesus.)

From Grain of Sand to Pearl

71. (Mama:) Here are some glorious promises for the Last Days, as well as an easy-to-remember word picture. Please don’t just casually read these promises out of interest and then forget all about them. Review them and even commit your favorite ones to memory, to help your faith grow and stay strong.

72. (Jesus speaking:) At times you have seen yourselves as tiny specks of sand on a vast ocean floor. What is one grain of sand among the millions? It seems to be nearly nothing. But all this time you have not seen yourself as I have seen you. For though you’ve remained as lowly grains of sand, I handpicked you from the masses. Just as a tiny grain of sand is placed within an ­oyster to bring about a brilliant creation, so have I picked each of My children and placed them within the oyster mouth.

73. You have continued to see yourself as the grain of sand, the insignificant one in a million. But like the transformation awakened within an oyster‚ I have done the same to you through the years! I have coated you with many layers, and you have grown in beauty and splendor. The once-plain grain of sand has altered continually, for each new layer has made its worth grow many times over. You now are a magnificent, priceless pearl!

74. Now the beautification of your pearl has reached its peak. No longer can it remain at the bottom of the ocean, hidden from the eyes of the world. It’s time to bring you out into the open, to display you in front of the world. For you are not as ordinary pearls—you are much larger, more beautiful and outstanding than the rest. All other pearls pale in comparison to your glory, for you are pearls touched by My hand, fashioned by Me alone.

75. I have harvested you, My precious pearls, and am now stringing you together to form the most awesome string of pearls ever known to mankind. This string of pearls is not as a normal pearl string, only gracing the necks of the rich. This string of pearls decorates the entire world. It touches every corner of the globe, so that all will see the splendor of these pearls and re­alize that they are not of this world, but have been supernaturally crafted by Me alone.

76. Wherever you go‚ this string of pearls will be seen. But the pearls are not merely decoration; a Heavenly light surrounds them. They pulsate with Heaven’s light. They remain within the grasp of the searching, so that all may touch them‚ and from them receive life and regeneration. For these pearls do not only cover the entire world, but they’re also linked to Heaven itself—they are the connection between Me and the world.

77. You, the children of David, are this string of pearls. Don’t say you are as nothing, for I have transformed you all into pearls of life, the link between My Kingdom and Earth. In the days to come, people will simply hear your name and will feel the power of God.

78. In a world submerged in depressing dismal­ness and glutted with opulence, in a time soon to come when the Evil One’s face will seemingly be carved upon the very structure of the world, when demons and every evil spirit will be rampant in every corner of the Earth, My Spirit must make a stronger declaration. The light you bear will be as a knife tearing through the curtain of darkness. They will but see your face and know that you have known Me in a way that no one else has.

79. It is Me within you that makes all Hell tremble, for you will be so filled with Me that to speak your name would be as calling on Mine. Just as My Spirit partook of My Father’s Spirit when I was in need of more power, so will the fire of My Spirit ignite your spirits in these days to come. Demons and dragons will cower at your name; they will bow low before you in homage and in reverence. Even Satan himself is not fit to defeat you, for you are a part of Me‚ and he cannot defeat Me. Nay, he cannot even consider the thought of defeating Me; the thought is as a scorpion sting to his heart.

80. His brutality will come to the fore as his corruptive evil stretches its tentacles far and wide, sinking them into the heart of this earth‚ but he cannot win for losing. He simply forces men to make a choice between good and evil, between life and death. And though he will gather many evil men, he will also lose his grasp and hold on many undecided, on many who will turn to the good instead, to Me.

81. In the hour when he believes he has won, I will counter him with you, My chil­dren. You are as the fire of life to those in search of freedom and rescue. And to those who refuse, you become as a consum­ing fire, calling up the brimstone from within the earth to destroy those who oppose Me.

82. He cannot defeat you, for you are destined to win. You will rule over his kingdom on Earth, for it will have become My Kingdom, and you will rule and reign with Me over the men who remain. Days of peaceful reign will come, but now you must fight for your subjects. You must be willing to give even of your life to rescue them from the oppression of Satan. I call you now not only to stand as witnesses before the whole world, but to be the very ones to fight for their freedom, to challenge the Evil One himself, defying his claim to their souls. For you are as Me upon the Earth. Your mission in life is only beginning; the reason I placed you on the Earth and chose you individually is beginning now.

83. I knew that of yourself you would not have what was necessary to oppose Satan, so I have spent these many years, even your whole life, to groom you for the place of opposition to the Enemy. Your future has only just begun. Now is the day of beginning‚ the day of transformation. The tomorrow you dreamed of has become today. I have awakened the warrior in each of you; My Spirit has descended upon you‚ melded with your spirit. Be ready for the battle of all time—the battle for the souls of men, the hearts of those bleeding and lost. Though you will be witnesses of My power and My mighty strength‚ you will also tell of My gentleness, My compassion‚ and My undying love.

84. Your eyes will be as My eyes—so much so, that if one should look deep within them, it is Me that they will see. You are now stronger, more powerful conduits of My Spirit to the world. I have ­chosen all of you, infused you with more of Me, and am now sending you out better prepared to conquer Satan’s domain, to rescue the downtrodden, the captives ensnarled in his trap.

85. Your footsteps will be as footsteps of gold imprinted upon the earth, as a path others will follow. You must take the first steps into the unknown territory of the Evil One, claiming the very land upon which you tread, snatching it from his grasp, and there will be nothing he will be able to do about it. You must walk as a body‚ and watch as he cowers at the sight of you‚ yea, at the sight of Me, for it will not be you he sees but Me.

86. These golden footsteps will be as a sign to the world of the pathway leading to Me, the steps to light and life eternal. Satan’s minions are no match for you; they will be as tiny, annoying bugs, buzzing about you in an attempt to find your weak point, or even to learn of your power—My power—but they cannot comprehend it. They have drunk of the cup of iniquity and allowed the darkness to flood their hearts, and darkness is no match for the light.

87. You will stand out not as an ordinary bulb bringing light to a darkened room, but as a constant flash of lightning, accompanied by the clap of thunder! There is no way you can be hidden or covered; there is no switch that can flip you off. I am the source of light, the essence of your fire, the heat of your light. The world will know that once the lightning strikes, there will be no hiding‚ no sidestepping.

88. You will be My beacons on the Earth, and as others touch you‚ they too will be set alight! The flame of My Spirit will be awakened even in the darkest of places, even within the domain of Satan himself. There will be those of his intimate aides who will be drawn by My light, and will reject the ways of darkness and embrace the light once again. There will be no impossibilities to the miracles My Spirit will bring to life through you.

89. I say now, stand strong. Allow My Spirit to fill every vein of your body. Let it be as the blood pumping through your veins. Let it be the essence of your life, the power of your spirit. It will not be you, but Me within you. I will be the driving force, the life of your spirit. The words that spill from your lips will be Mine, your thoughts linked to Mine, even your heartbeat in sync with Mine.

90. Are you overwhelmed with what I’m promising to do? Don’t be! This is the day of no impossibilities, the day of your greatest anointing, the day in which My prophetess will stand before the multitudes, and when you‚ My Family, will make your declaration to all nations of My Spirit, of My takeover of this world.

91. The words of My prophetess will echo throughout the world, beckoning the hearts of My children, wooing them to Me and evoking a transformation throughout the lands. Not since I walked the Earth will such a message have been heralded and turned so many hearts, and one voice have made such an impact.

92. I said that Maria shall shine; behold, she will pulsate with light! She will be illuminated by a light that will blind the unbeliever, that will sear the heart of the evildoer. Yet to the searching soul‚ the light she radiates will be comfort to their soul, respite from darkness, the light to wash away the impurities of sin. She will be My last witness to the world, the testament of My covenant to man‚ the ultimate defiance to all evil‚ the final proclamation that I will take back that which is Mine.

93. This is only the beginning, My brides. The spectacle of power is being readied to be revealed, each day that brings a little more darkness signals the potency of the light. Channel My Spirit, be the open conduit, ready to saturate the world with My Spirit, My light, and My promise of a better tomorrow. It is within you; all you must do is draw on the power. (End of mess­age from Jesus.)

Gold Magic!

94. (Mama:) Next is a prophecy that was received by one of the young people in our Home. The Lord first talks to her about her “birthday treasure,” which is related to the surprise treasure that He promised to give each person during the Family Birthday. (See ML #3320:19-24, GN 924.) Then He goes on to explain more about the wonders of the keys! It’s fascinating!

95. (Jesus speaking:) The birthday treasure that I have given you is complete freedom from the past. It is a release and a breaking of your chains from the conformity and the condemnation of your past. It is the word to set you free. It is to give you a totally new, clean start, with no past‚ no history, just beauty before you.

96. Isn’t that the most beautiful and valuable thing to you? Don’t you want it? You wouldn’t want to miss that, would you? I know you don’t.

97. You have to be willing to receive this gift in order for Me to give it to you in full. Do you want it? Yes! Okay, then it’s yours. Here it is. Take it. Cherish it. Hold on to it. Revel in it. Apply it today in your life and you’ll never be the same again.

98. The power of the keys to the Kingdom for you, coupled with this birthday treasure, open the doors of Heaven to you. Now that nothing will hold you back, and the Enemy has lost his grip on you through fear, worry, pride and guilt, you can charge forward in all the might of the angels‚ because what is holding you back? What is stopping you?

99. Let go of the past now and don’t compare anything with the past. You need to let all that go and not even think about it anymore. Just step out by faith and trust Me for today. Let Me wipe yesterday and all your yesterdays clean. Will you let Me? If so, then you can move forward in faith and trust, believing, receiving and enjoying the tremendous rewards and fruits that the keys to the Kingdom will bring to you.

100. If you’re bound and held back by one of the Enemy’s vices in your life, then you can never have full hold on the keys to the Kingdom. With fear in your life, you lack faith to fully access all the wonders of Heaven. You automatically cancel out some of the most wonderful and needed features of the keys that I’ve given you.

101. So now you should have a whole new lease on life. You’ve just been granted much more power, life, love‚ joy, happiness, fulfillment and treasure. You are a billionaire. You have no limits‚ because the gifts that I have given you have no limits. I have no limits, and I’m your personal slave now, waiting to do your bidding. I’ve placed My­self in that humble position because I gave you the keys to the Kingdom—My ­King­dom—and I will command your requests to be fulfilled with ease and speed, because I have given you great, great power. I will teach you how to use it, and then I will delight in your commands. This is a wonder of the Last Days.

102. You have to learn how to use these keys. You must practice now. You have to ask Me in every situation, “How can I use the keys? What can they do for me here?” It’s magic. It’s not black magic or white magic—it’s gold magic. It’s the highest form of magic, and it far surpasses all other magic, illusions, or trickery.

103. You can be a magician, a wizard, a miracle worker. At last, you have the highest form of power. But it starts small‚ and you have to practice, experiment‚ and utilize the power in order to make it grow. What are your desires? What are your passions? What have you always wanted to do? Ask Me about the keys. Find out what the keys have to offer.

104. How can you possibly not desire the greatest power in the universe?—Not just spiritual power, but the direct, tan­gible, physical, moving, commanding power of the keys. Yes, it is gold magic. It is the purest and highest commanding power over the physical realm—over matter‚ people, animals, weather—as well as all opposing spiritual forces. The keys can do battle with lower magic and base magic, evil magic‚ even the so-called white magic that supposedly does good and creates harmony and peace.

105. The magic of the world has absolutely nothing on the golden magic you now possess. It’s available. Why not use it? Why not become skilled in it?

106. The people of the world go to great and bizarre lengths to obtain low levels of magical power. I’m handing the keys to gold magic to you on a diamond-studded platter. You can take it or leave it, but taking it would be the wise choice, because in the days to come, you will battle spiritual forces and powers of the air and of the realms of magic, wizardry and sorcery. You will need these keys to counter the evil of the days to come, in both the spirit and the physical.

107. I will be your teacher and trainer. Look not at the magic or the powers of the world. Look at Me and let Me guide you through the courses of magic and wonder that are yet secrets, kept from all others who claim to be able to move mountains and change hearts. They are still wandering in the deserts and void of understanding. They perform toylike tricks com­pared to the wonders I can perform in the twink­ling of an eye. And this magic and power are not reserved for Me; they are available to you. The power lies in the keys. (End of message from Jesus.)

108. (Mama:) Jesus has blessed us far beyond what we could possibly express! He certainly is our Miracle Worker, Champion, Hero, Answer Man, and Lover. Our life of service to Him has been a step-by-step process over the years, and each time we obey and see the fruit of that obedience, it lights a fire in our hearts to not fail Him. No matter what the sacrifice, when you see the rewards, it’s worth it.

109. Dear loves, Peter and I are praying that your faith fail not. God has marvelous things in store for you, if you will just believe and remain faithful. He’s not looking for perfection or sanctimonious holiness. He just wants your love, devotion‚ humility and surrender. He wants your desires and priorities. He wants your body as a living sacrifice, willing to die for Him and others by freely giving of your strength and time to bring the truth of His love‚ forgiveness, hope and salvation to the lost. We know you have what it takes to believe, accept and act on the enhanced gift of faith your King has put within you, and through that faith, we will conquer the world!

With undying love in our unfailing Anchor,

Mama

Quote set off near end of Letter:

You cannot fail in your mission, My loves; you can only hold yourself back. Use the keys. Use them. Don’t let them go to waste! These are the keys that all men dream of possessing, but I’ve given them unto you, for you are My beloved brides and have sucked My seeds, and I know that with these keys you will do so with a greater intensity.

Though you were a beautiful and a powerful people even before you received these keys, you didn’t have the full power as you do now. You may not see the difference with your carnal eyes just yet, but you will know that there is one once you use the keys. Now that they’re in your hands, you will gradually emerge from the cocoon of the physical into the form of the spiritual. There’s nothing to fear, precious ones‚ and so very much to be gained.

Mysterious Keys, The–Part 1

Karen Zerby

FEAST 2004

By MariaMaria #664 CM/FM 3472 10/03

Dearest Family,

1. There’s a lot of excitement in the air about the keys of the Kingdom and their use! We in our Home are experimenting with them with good results. Of course, there are still lots of questions and the keys remain quite a mystery. But we’re claiming the key promises in our prayers and seeing miracles, as many of you are.

2. However, there have been and will continue to be some unexpected turns, and some of you have wondered, “Is this really working?” There have been times when things didn’t turn out as you expected. Those puzzling experiences can raise some questions or doubts. In fact, the whole concept of “calling on the keys” can make you wonder if things are getting a little “extreme.” I believe most of you have been willing to receive the truth of the keys‚ but even if you believe, you might have some questions, and that’s understandable.

3. We have been given this amazing power, and it’s through what the Lord calls “the keys.” The keys are one with the Word and with Jesus and with His love, we have to live the lives of disciples in order to use them‚ and by calling on them we have access to all the power of Heaven. Not only are they all-powerful, but they are also an essential part of bringing about the miracles we need in these Last Days.

4. Then there is this “woman of the wind” character, Ellya. She’s been with Jesus almost since the beginning. She reasoned with the angels to stay true to the truth when Lucifer rebelled. She pled with the people at the time of Noah. She’s able to take on many forms. She obviously is a very powerful spirit being. And now she’s teaching us—about the keys!

5. Of course it sounds far-fetched, but that doesn’t make it false or weird. It’s a remarkable revelation, and just serves as another reminder that the Lord is showing us new things. But new doesn’t always mean easy. New can sometimes be complicated‚ and certainly mysterious and outside the realm of the expected.

6. To call on the power of the keys is changing our manner of praying somewhat. That’s a pretty big deal. And to be constantly claiming these new key promises, which are fresh from Heaven, might seem to some of you to be rather unorthodox and even strange or unnecessary or taking things too far. Even if you want to have faith and you’re trying to have faith, you might still be plagued with some questions that take away some of your desire to use the keys.

7. Several of you have written us with questions you have about the keys, and while I was working on these GNs for you, I asked everyone in our Home and the other WS units to write up any questions they could think of about the keys, or any they had heard from family or friends. I also had some questions I wanted to ask the Lord. We compiled all the questions and anything the Lord had given over the past months about the keys, and came up with quite a bit of material! In bringing these questions to the Lord‚ a great variety of channels helped to receive the answers, and it’s beautiful to see how they all fit together.

8. Before we get into it all, though, I want to share with you an excerpt of a message the Lord gave as I was working on this GN for you‚ that I think will help you to know how to approach this wealth of answers from our Husband. You can’t go into this series expecting everything to suddenly be transparent or make perfect, logical sense. The Lord is very sweet to answer all our questions, and I believe the answers will help and strengthen your faith a lot‚ if you’re sincere in wanting the answers. But if you expect things to be totally clear and comprehensible in a physical, logical, “2 plus 2 equals 4, and that’s all there is to it” type way, you’re probably going to be disappointed.

9. We must remember that the keys are a mystery—in fact, the Lord has called them a spiritual phenomenon. He’s told us many times that we’re going to be learning about them and uncovering portions of their mysteries for as long as we use them on Earth. If we realize and remember that‚ it makes perfect sense that we can’t expect to understand everything now.

10. I think the following excerpt from the Lord will be comforting and encouraging for you. He’s reassuring us that we don’t need to worry if we can’t figure everything out to the point where we “understand” it! We’re not to worry about that—none of us have a handle on it fully! And, from what the Lord says below, that’s just the way it’s going to be, because it will take us the rest of eternity to learn and comprehend and absorb all the mysteries of the spirit that exist. When you look at it that way, it becomes more challenging, exciting, and inspiring, rather than discouraging, disconcerting, or destabilizing. We don’t have to understand everything—but we can take it by faith and access this wonderful power source the Lord has made available to us.

11. (Jesus: ) The keys are a mystery, and those who try to figure it all out in their minds will only wind up more confused or boggled. The carnal mind cannot perceive the things of the spirit. And because I go to such lengths to explain so much to you and put it in terms you can understand, some people have the tendency when they can’t understand something to get sort of surprised or alarmed or bent out of shape about it—forgetting that they’re so small and have so much to learn when it comes to matters of the spirit.

12. It’s true that you’re My children and My brides, and I spoil you with information and love and explanations and all that I can to make things easy for you and to bring you along. Compared with the children of the churches, you’re far ahead and very mature and learned. But when it comes to the overall scheme of things and the greatness and majesty of My creation and the spirit world, you really have learned so little that it’s almost comical when someone gets worried about something that isn’t clear to them.

13. It all comes down to faith. If your faith is a little shaky, spend some time strengthening it in the Word. But don’t just throw up your hands or start to doubt or analyze when you come across something that doesn’t fit into your little box of logic. No matter how open-minded you think you are or how big you think your box is, it’s really a teeny little speck in the realm of the universe when compared to all that there is to comprehend and learn—and that you will be enjoyably learning for all eternity! Don’t get stuck now—you’ve only just begun! (End of message from Jesus.)

14. (Mama:) Okay, now that we’ve established that we can’t try to figure this all out in our little teeny carnal minds, let’s open ourselves up to receiving some more clues to the mysteries of the universe!

15. I’m not going to add much commentary on most of these messages, because the questions and the answers are self-explanatory. I will add here, however, that if you read an answer and still don’t quite feel like you “get it,” please don’t get stuck on it or let it bother you. It’s very natural that we would have questions about something so new and mysterious, and of course the Enemy will try to play up those questions and use them to keep you from benefiting from the tremendous power the Lord has given us in the keys. So cut the Enemy off at the pass by asking the Lord your questions yourself, if they’re not answered in this GN. Let our Husband answer you personally with His reassuring words‚ and He’ll either explain things to your satisfaction or else He’ll give you the faith and peace to just trust Him about it. Either way, the Enemy’s attacks on you will be defeated.

16. Having said that‚ some aspects of the various questions posed aren’t answered in the message immediately following the question. A lot of the questions are similar or related, and the Lord didn’t choose to answer every aspect of every single one. But I believe that if you read through the whole package of questions and answers, things will come into focus much more, and it will help greatly to give you a clearer perspective on what the keys are, why they’re important for us today, why we heard so little about them before, where we’re going with them, and why they sometimes don’t seem to work—to name just a few of the questions we asked.

17. And in all of this, keep reminding yourself that the keys are a very big‚ intriguing mystery of the spirit world. It’s exciting, and it’s not a bad thing that we don’t know everything about them now. As we keep experimenting and asking the Lord questions in our use of them‚ we’re going to be discovering more about them all the time. Praise the Lord! We have a lot to learn, but we’re going to have fun getting there! Amen?

Mama on the Lord’s puzzles (2001):

18. (Mama:) Understanding the future is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Some people derive great joy from doing puzzles, and the more pieces there are and the more challenging and difficult the puzzle, the more they seem to like it. Some puzzles have up to 5,000 or 10,000 pieces, and there are even three-dimensional ones and ones that are two-sided. Well‚ I’m not a puzzle person‚ since my eyes could never take the strain, but I sure love the Lord’s puzzles. I’m fascinated by all the many little pieces and how they fit together.

19. Just as you might see a group of people huddled around a big table covered in thousands of tiny puzzle pieces‚ intently studying the various shapes, and cheering each time another piece is safely tucked into its place, so should we be with the Lord’s spiritual puzzles. We can’t expect to just toss the pieces around carelessly and hope they’ll fall into place, thus completing the whole picture rather effortlessly. We need to study and think and pray about all the fine details, and look for clues, and then we’ll find the picture becoming clearer all the time. If we look at it like that, it’s a challenge. It’s fun. It’s not laborious study, but it’s an adventure. (ML #3349:32-33, GN 942).

End of text box.

What’s the scriptural foundation for using the keys in the way we do?

20. (Question:) I don’t disbelieve the keys. I include them in my prayers. I know that because the Lord’s way is so much higher than ours, there are probably billions of things that I don’t understand in His Kingdom. Nevertheless, I still get stuck on the keys. Sometimes I do “choke” a bit. Please pray for me in this, as I guess it has to be the Lord to give me the faith.

21. You see, when Dad had a new revelation from the Lord—some of which were pretty wild, as he admitted himself—he was always very faithful to give us scripture after scripture after scripture to back up the doctrine. Sometimes he said, “Well, you can believe this if you want to,” but he made sure he gave us the verses to give us faith.

22. In the case of the keys‚ there is only one verse in the Bible that specifically mentions the keys of the Kingdom, which doesn’t give the impression that they’re anything new or anything very big. I guess I don’t understand why I should claim the key promises now instead of the Bible promises. Are the key promises better than the Bible promises? I don’t think I’ve read that anywhere, yet I do hear people’s prayers where they claim the key promises (not the Bible), and it is what we are encouraged to do. I don’t understand why “If you ask anything in My Name I will do it” isn’t good enough anymore.

23. My trials and questions about the keys are not going to stop me praying, and I won’t leave the Family because of it, but for me it’s an extra trial that I don’t need right now. There have been testimonies of answers to prayers prayed using the keys; yet on the other hand, there have been countless testimonies of answers to prayer pubbed over the years—thrilling, miraculous answers to prayers prayed using the Bible. I’d hate to think we were somehow phasing out the Bible.

24. I certainly don’t go around talking to everyone about this, but I would appreciate hearing from you, how you see it. Thanks!

25. (Dad:) Hi, Son! God bless you! I love you! You’re an avid student of the Word and I’m glad you’ve taken the time to ask this question—which is a very good and valid question—and at the same time have had the faith to just take it by faith so far. There are a lot of things the Lord asks us to take purely by faith, and sometimes they simply can’t be understood by the carnal mind because they’re spiritually discerned.

26. It’s like being saved. How in the world does that make sense? You accept Jesus’ atonement for your sins by faith, right? But when you think about it in practical terms, when you first heard about salvation—was it logical? It’s not logical to think that some man you not only don’t know‚ but who lived 2‚000 years before you, died for you because He personally loved you. That out of all the billions of people who ever lived on Earth, He knew about little ol’ you—and you weren’t even going to be born for another 2,000 years! To think that just because this guy hung on a cross and died for you, you could be forgiven for all your sins and someday be taken to some far-out paradise where you’d finally meet the guy face to face and live happily ever after for all eternity—not to mention you were asked to believe that He not only died, but He actually rose from the dead three days later—all so that you could now have this man living in your heart—and how does someone else live in your heart anyhow—how much sense does all this make? It takes faith‚ right?

27. When Jesus tried to explain the concept of salvation to Nicodemus‚ He told him, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, but that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” But Nicodemus had a hard time understanding this whole concept. Why? Because it goes against carnal and logical thinking.

28. Nicodemus was raised in the jot and tittle of a very literal law dealing with every physical matter imaginable. Most of the Jews were. That’s what Jesus came to set them—and us—free from. “The letter of the law killeth.” “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

29. There’s another brainteaser that you’ve accepted all your life: How can spoken words be spirit and life? This is a truth and principle that your heart and mind have accepted even though it makes no logical sense when you really think of it. And that is why, from the very beginning, when Paul was preaching to the very analytical Jews, the philosophical Greeks, and the carnal Romans, the Lord showed him that the carnal mind was at enmity with God.

30. I’ll get around to answering your question in a minute, because, as I said, it’s a good and valid question. But first I wanted to make the point that the fact that you’re “choking” on this one little issue is an attack of the Enemy—a little seed of doubt through which he is trying to enter in and throw off your service for the Lord.

31. You’ve accepted much bigger and more complex issues by faith, so the fact that this question that you can’t quite understand has grown to such large proportions and so large an issue in your mind shows that it’s really the Enemy who is behind it‚ trying to bog you down and hinder your faith and service for the Lord through it.

32. The Lord knows that this is a major tactic of the Enemy, which is why He’s giving and instructing us in the gifts of full possession and heavenly thought power—of letting our minds become one with His mind so that we can not only think His thoughts, but also partake of His power and heavenly perspectives and truths, against the very reasonable temptations of carnal logic such as the Enemy tempted the Lord with during those 40 days in the wilderness.

33. Now, to answer your question, there were many things that the Lord told His disciples on Earth, and not all of them made it into the Bible. In fact‚ very few of them did—only those things that were most important and sufficient for the vast majority of sheep and heathen who would have to find salvation through it. The Lord had a good deal more to say about the keys and the power He had entrusted to His disciples that didn’t make it into the Bible. There were many conversations He held one–on-one with His disciples that never made it into any Gospel, because those particular disciples didn’t write it down, but only made it part of their personal stand and witness for the Lord. The Lord is now giving you and many others many of these same things through the gift of prophecy, much like He personally spoke to and instructed each of His disciples when they walked and talked with Him.

34. So just because the keys of the Kingdom are only mentioned in one verse of the Bible and don’t seem to hold that much more significance than any of the other verses and promises of power and protection, this doesn’t mean that they can’t be as important as the Lord is telling us they are today. Nor does it mean that all the other verses and promises are suddenly not important anymore. In fact, you’ll notice that many of the key promises are familiar scriptures that have been paraphrased to include the keys in them. And that little clue is a “key” to unraveling this particular mystery of the keys.

35. Now pull out your Bible, because you’re going to have to follow along for this part. First I want you to go to Luke 10, starting at verse 17. This is after the Lord sent out His 70 disciples, and they went forth and did a lot of miracles and wonders in His Name. They preached the Kingdom of God and healed the sick, trusting the Lord to supply all their needs as they did so. Now they’ve returned with great joy, saying‚ “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Your Name!” What does the Lord answer? Verse 18: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven!”

36. Now this isn’t when Satan is cast out of Heaven for good. It says he “falls” here, and there are two reasons for that. For one, his power and dominion on Earth in the hearts of men has fallen. The Lord came to set men free from his power, from the power of death and hell, and He not only did so personally, but now He’s trained others to do so (Rev.1:18). That’s one reason the Enemy fell, and in the spirit it was quick as lightning!

37. For another reason, when Satan saw the 70 off doing their miracles, the prince of the power of the air freaked out! He suddenly realized that he was not only having to keep an eye on that thorn in his side, the Son of God, Jesus, but that suddenly here were 70 more little “messiahs” walking around winning souls and casting out his devils! He shot to Earth like lightning when he realized, “Hey, this battle is starting for real! I need to get my act together! I need to get my devils together! I need to consolidate my power and principalities. My demons are getting put out of commission, being ejected left and right! I’ve got to do something! I’ve got to get down here and take action!”

38. Even though Satan had suffered some great defeats, the Lord knew he was going to try even stronger attacks and temptations to defeat the work and power of Heaven that was beginning to spread not only through Jesus, but now through these 70 disciples! And so what does Jesus say next?

39. Verse 19: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the Enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Are you starting to see my point? Can you see where I’m going with this? When the Enemy steps up his attacks, the Lord steps up the power that is available to fight against him. And that is the significance of the power of the keys of the Kingdom that He is now instructing you to make use of.

40. Now let’s go to that verse about the keys of the Kingdom in Matthew 16:19. The Lord says, “I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven.” Then He explains what these keys are for: “Whatsoever thou shalt bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven.”

41. The bottom line was that, again, now that the Son of God was about to be manifested and revealed to the world in a greater way, through greater miracles and manifestations of power, the disciples were also going to need more power, even more direct access to the spiritual resources of Heaven, so the Lord had to give them the keys of the Kingdom for that purpose. But hadn’t He already given them power before this? What did they need the keys for? Well, what does anybody need keys for?—To get into something that until then has been locked!

42. The Lord has given you the keys to the Kingdom. These keys have been around for a long time. But as the Lord told the Family during Feast 2001, He has augmented their power and He’s giving the Family full access, because you’re going to need it as His Endtime army. He’s saying, “There’s a lot of power behind that door that I want you to discover. I’ve augmented the keys of the Kingdom, and now I’m making the full power of Heaven available to you, but you’ve got to pick up these keys and put them to use. You’ve got to learn to use them. You’ve got to call on the keys of the Kingdom and command their power.

43. “I’ve given you many promises and much power, but there is even more behind this door that you haven’t tapped into yet! Here, this is exactly how you can use them and access this power. You can claim, ‘My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory’ and I will supply for you. But if at the same time you call on the keys and say, ‘My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory through the keys of the Kingdom‚’ it opens an entirely new door of power and priority for that request.”

44. That’s what all this “calling on the keys” business is about. It doesn’t mean that past answers to prayer were any less miraculous‚ or that other promises and verses of supply and protection are no longer as powerful or even still valid. It just means that as the Lord’s elite Endtime army facing the final showdown and greatest battle between Heaven and Hell of all history‚ He’s telling you that without availing yourselves of the fullest and greatest manifestations of His power that He’s making available to you, you’re not going to make it. From that perspective, is it any wonder that He has increased and augmented the original power of Heaven that was available?

45. When the Lord first gave His disciples power “over all the works of the Enemy‚” the Enemy was only using so much power against them. Since then, the Enemy has continued to broaden his base and sphere of influence and power in and over this world. It is his right, because this is his domain. But it also means that what was once sufficient against “all the power of the Enemy” is not sufficient anymore! You could call it spiritual inflation. The disciples could do more with less power in their day because the resisting power of the Enemy wasn’t as great. Today the resisting power of the Enemy and his doubts and carnality are stronger in the world, so the Lord needs to give us even greater faith and greater power to perform miracles today.

46. Because He is expecting even “greater works than these,” the sources of power and spiritual energy and the openness and receptivity of each person’s channel to that energy and power become almost astronomical compared to what was needed 2,000 years ago! But no matter what the Enemy tries to throw at you and how advanced his armies and legions and tactics become, they can never outdo the Lord‚ Who is still and always will be greater than “he that is in the world.”

47. So call on the Lord, call on His promises, call on His power‚ call on the keys of His Kingdom! Expect miracles, and in Jesus’ Name and the power of the keys you’ll get them!

48. God bless you, Son. I love you! Thank you for being a faithful student of the Word and the Bible and for “searching the scriptures to see if these things be so.” Just don’t forget to seek the Lord as well, and realize that not everything He tells us today will have a precedent in what He told His disciples or prophets thousands of years ago. That’s what the “more sure word of prophecy” is for, and why the Lord has been so insistent on us learning to use it, discern it, judge it, interpret it, and understand it.

49. “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established‚” and you can be sure that the messages and revelations that proceed from your queen’s house and from the cup of your winetaster have been prayed about and confirmed by practiced and prayerful channels in countless messages, explanations, clarifications, and confirmations from the Lord. That is the responsibility of your queen and king, and one that they take very seriously, and that the Lord and I have entrusted them with. And they’re doing a great job passing on the words and revelations the Lord gives them, and that the Lord knows are needed to prepare us all for the days and times of “Great Tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of this time” that are soon to come!

50. Will you be ready? Not without the power of the keys, you won’t! (End of message from Dad.)

Why do we have to emphasize the keys?

51. (Question:) Why is it no longer enough just to pray in the Name of Jesus and claim and stand on Your Word? Why is it so important that we call on the keys and claim the key promises?

52. (Jesus:) There are many barriers between Heaven and Earth, between the realm of the spirit and the realm of the flesh, but the keys, which are a spiritual power, immediately part the veil and provide access to the full power of Heaven. If you find it hard to believe that there’s such a great distance between the realm of the spirit and the realm of the flesh, and that there’s so much happening in between, why do you think all of those who have had life-after–death experiences tell of the big tunnel they must travel through to reach Heaven?

53. The spiritual world is vast, and I have allowed the Enemy control of certain sectors of it for now. The keys were created to part the veil‚ to give you instant access to My power. The Enemy seeks to stop you from gaining access, and his efforts to block or hinder you will increase even more as you draw closer to the End. That is why you need the power of the keys to access My full power immediately‚ instantly, in the blink of an eye. The keys give you direct access to the power source of Heaven, the awesome and mighty power that could, if it were My will, destroy every last demon of Hell‚ including the Devil himself, in an instant.

54. I understand that it takes more faith to call on the keys, because it’s a new concept. But calling on the keys doesn’t replace Me. In calling on the keys you are calling on Me, because the keys are a part of Me. It’s like accessing a secret code, a direct hotline where you can connect to My full power without having to go through a lot of motions. Yes, prayer is powerful, and when you pray, things happen. But in the process of prayer as you now know it‚ there are many factors that come into play. It’s dialogue between you and Me, and you must state your request clearly and explicitly. There is also a prayer chain of command in the heavenlies, where prayers go through different channels and where My helpers in the spirit world are assigned to help bring about answers to prayer. It often takes time and effort for you and the spirits involved in bringing the answer to pass. But in the future, when the Family’s faith in the keys has been honed and refined‚ there will be more instant miracles—and very powerful ones at that.

55. The power of the keys—and the other weapons of the spirit—empowers your prayers more than ever before. When you call on the power of the keys in prayer, you heighten and increase your prayer power. The keys create a slit or an opening in the veil between your world and Mine‚ and in an instant, in a split second, you can access full, tremendous power from Heaven. This is what you will need in the days to come when My power and the keys’ manifestations will be clearly known and seen.

56. You will not always have time to prime the pump, speak in tongues, and desperately pray lengthy prayers as you do now. There will be situations where you’ll need to simply utter the words, “The keys!” and lightning will fall, or prison doors will open, or eyes will be blinded‚ or wild beasts’ mouths closed, or whatever miracle you need will come to pass. That’s when you’ll see and know clearly that there is a specific difference between praying without the keys and calling on the keys. You’ll see and know the instant power available to you through them, such power that was not available to you before—not even through the powerful weapon of prayer without the enhancement of the new weapons. The keys will bring on-the-spot power, direct answers, and are created specifically for times when tremendous surges of heavenly intervention are needed in an instant, according to My will.

57. (Jesus:) There will be times in the future when there will be such a deep understanding between Me and My brides that they will be able to utter (either with their mouth or in their thoughts) a single word, an access code for a new weapon, and they will know that I will answer them. They will have grown in their faith, and they will have seen My power manifested. That’s why I say that in the future My children will be able to simply call out to the keys, and then miracles will happen instantly.

58. There will be a distinct difference in the future because of many things—not just the keys. There will be deeper and more instant understanding between us as a result of full possession and heavenly thought power. Now it is necessary for you to express your heart to Me, to pray in detail, and to claim promises for every situation, in order to be giving Me your all. It’s a part of the strengthening of your faith, because as you use the weapon of praise, for example, and then see miracles, it gives you greater faith in it. The same is true with the keys.

59. But in the future there will be a need in many dire situations for you to be so closely linked to My mind, so believing regarding My keys, and so knowledgeable of My promises through reading and memorizing My Word‚ that you will be able to receive those instant miracles through saying or thinking one or two simple words. It seems odd to you now‚ and you wonder how it would be possible. It will be because you will be accessing many spiritual weapons at once. It will be possible for you to, in a split second, access every weapon in your arsenal. Because you will be linked to My mind, because you will have heavenly thought power‚ your abilities in the spiritual warfare will be supernatural.

60. In the time it would take to say, “I call on the keys,” you would be: 1) Using the weapon of prayer, because you would be communicating with Me. 2) You would also be using the power of the keys. 3) You would be using the weapon of praise‚ because in your heart and spirit you’d be calling‚ proclaiming My greatness. 4) You’d be loving Me intimately, because you’d be linked to My Spirit intimately. 5) You’d be using heavenly thought power‚ because that would be the glue linking everything together. (End of message from Jesus.)

End of text box.

61. The keys are activated by faith‚ and without full faith, you won’t be able to access their full power. The time when you can reach up with the keys through the veil directly into Heaven and in an instant pull down the power to blow up an Antichrist aircraft, for example, will come when you truly and completely believe in My power, and when in your mind there are absolutely no impossibilities. That is why you wouldn’t be able to access that kind of power right now, today, because for the most part you don’t yet have the kind of unwavering faith where you could yell out, “The keys!” and know that in that very same instant the miracle would occur.

62. Some of you have the idea that the keys, if they are as real and powerful as I say they are, should be able to do these kinds of breathtaking miracles right now, today. But there are reasons they don’t. For one thing, it’s not the time; for another thing, you don’t have the faith, and for the most part the need isn’t as great today as it will be in the days to come. I do many miracles when you call on the keys, but many of you are looking only for the more outstanding, fire–from-the-sky miracles, which I have for the most part reserved for the future. These days are for the purpose of strengthening your faith, the days when you’re obeying and honing the gift, when you’re learning to make calling on the keys a part of your nature, a natural reaction.

63. You’re seeing the keys work miracles because you’re using them, but because they’re almost the same kind of miracles you’ve been used to seeing, you tend to start losing faith. Since you wouldn’t consider the miracles you’re seeing today as “greater” or “more powerful” than you’re used to, you think, “What’s the point of using the keys? Why not just keep calling on the Lord and praying normally, because I’m not getting better, quicker, or more powerful results?”

64. It’s true that in many cases you probably can’t see or notice the difference, but there is a difference, even though it may only be slight. If you were to go back to the way you used to do things, considering the conditions of the spirit world today, you would find yourself having to fight much more arduously and it would take much more effort without the keys. You would feel the difference and would notice that your power was lacking. It’s because the world is getting darker, the spiritual realm is much more active than ever—both the good and the bad side—and the power of the keys is helping you not to be so overwhelmed, and is giving you the power to keep winning victories and seeing miracles.

65. You may feel that everything is the same in the natural, but it isn’t the same in the spirit world. If you were to try and go back to the way you did things before, in praying without the new weapon of the keys in your arsenal, you’d notice the difference—because your prayers wouldn’t be as powerful or effective. And if you really are struggling with the concept of using the keys, then maybe you should try it. If you used only the power of prayer—without the enhancements of the other spiritual weapons‚ like the keys—victories would be much more of a struggle to win‚ goals would be harder to attain, changes would be more difficult to implement, and everyday miracles would be fewer.

66. But, My children‚ even if you don’t see many of what you would consider real “miraculous” answers to prayer, or the kind of things you think the keys should be capable of and that I have promised they will do in time, please trust Me. This is a time of testing, a time of proving your faith, a time of honing your skills‚ a time of building habits. It’s a time of training in using the keys and learning how to wield them.

67. It’s like you’re a soldier in boot camp going through basic training, learning how to use your weapons and how to handle yourself in combat‚ so that when you’re sent out on the battlefield you’ll be a good soldier‚ you’ll know how to use your weapons, and you won’t be caught in the line of fire not knowing how to shoot your “gun.”

68. Think about a soldier in training: If he didn’t have his eyes on what all of his training was for or how powerful his weapons were‚ he could get pretty discouraged. Every day he’d be training with his gun, shooting at various targets, all the while being told what sort of accomplishment it will be when he shoots accurately at his enemy. It takes faith for him to believe that the weapon he’s learning to use will actually be so powerful, but when the time comes for him to engage in combat, it will quickly become shockingly clear. His constant, never-ending training in the use and maintenance of his weapon was probably pretty boring at times, and he may have wondered why he had to keep practicing over and over and over again, but the training continued. On the battlefield he’ll be glad he put faith in the gun, learned how to use it, and didn’t fritter away his time or give up because he didn’t immediately see the full results or the purpose of his training.

69. Think about doctors or surgeons. They go through years of education‚ training, and instruction before they ever get their hands on “the real thing.” For many years their education is only in theory. It’s a long time before they even get to be an assistant in the operating room, let alone perform an operation on their own. But all their years of training in using the medical instruments and understanding how the human body works are put to use when they finally get to practice what they’ve learned.

70. It’s the same with many professions of this high caliber. There’s a lot of training, practice, instruction and education before someone like a doctor is allowed to actually use the tools of his profession—in a sense, his weapons against disease. It’s because it’s a serious calling and job, and people can’t be trusted with the full responsibility without first proving themselves proficient, faithful, and dedicated in their training.

71. It’s much like it is now with the keys. You’re going through a period of training—learning more about this weapon of calling on the keys, making it more of a habit and your first reaction, and learning to be masters of key power. The keys are a very heavy responsibility and a powerful weapon, and that’s why I’m training you in their use. It takes time for you to learn to use the keys as you should, and the wisdom you gain through this time of training will prepare you to be a prayerful wielder of the awesome power when it’s fully released to you at the time appointed. It will be released to you when the time is right, when you’re a skilled key wielder, and in that time you will be so thankful you didn’t give up, but kept up with your training even though you didn’t always see visible results.

72. That’s what the Devil hates and fears the most: when you will access the full power of the keys in the future. That’s why he’s fighting so hard now, in these days of relative peace, to get you to doubt the keys and their power or to slack off in your practice drills—not only because of their power to defeat him today, but also because he knows their power will be aimed at him and his ilk even more strongly in the days to come. He trembles in fear at what’s to come as your faith grows and you become more practiced in your use of the keys.

73. It’s your faith in the keys being strengthened and your preparation for the days ahead that he wants to stop today. So if he can get you to minimize their power to the point where you don’t use them and they don’t become a part of your nature and way of operating, then he’s won a pretty big victory—a present victory because you won’t be defeating him as much today if you’re not using the keys, and a future victory as well. Even though you don’t clearly see the full power of the keys now, in time you will, and you can be sure the Enemy sees and knows and is sorely afraid of it.

74. He’s seen the full power of direct access to Heaven before, when I was on Earth, cutting through every barrier between Heaven and Earth in an instant, and he trembles in fear at the thought of that same power—only multiplied and enhanced—being wielded against him and his minions in the not too distant future. When I used the keys of the Kingdom‚ he trembled and feared‚ but as powerful as I was‚ I was only one key wielder. In the End, all of My children who choose to can wield that same power, and that awesome widespread accessing of the full power of Heaven is going to send shock waves throughout his kingdom—both his earthly kingdom and his spiritual kingdom! That’s why he fights it so hard‚ because he knows that there is no such power available to him‚ nothing that even comes close to matching the immediate full power of Heaven released through the key codes of Heaven.

75. As I said before and I’ll say to you again, My children of the End, applying it to today: “I have given unto you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. And whatsoever you shall bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatsoever you shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven.” The keys of the Kingdom are a gift, not a burden‚ and the wise will receive it, hone it, and trust Me for the full manifestations in the days to come. (End of message from Jesus.)

What’s the difference between praying and calling on the keys?

76. (Jesus:) Prayer is talking to Me. It’s our communication system. Prayer is powerful. It effects change because you are communicating with Me, the great God of the universe, and asking Me to do something for you—to help, to anoint, to heal, to deliver, to impart revelation, or whatever the case may be. Prayer is not a minor part of your spiritual lives—it’s major and is a very integral part‚ as you can see by all that I have said in many, many Letters regarding it.

77. With increased insight into the keys and increased attention being given to the keys because of the fact that My children are getting into the habit of using them, it may seem like prayer is being downplayed, but this is certainly not the case. If a child of Mine were to say, “I call on the keys,” that is praying. Praying is simply talking to Me, whether through long communication or through a brief thought sent My way. The keys do not minimize the power of prayer or the effects of prayer. They only enhance it.

78. If you think of prayer as communication with Me, then you will realize that many things fall under the umbrella of prayer and interlink with prayer. Prayer is a vehicle for the keys, a vehicle for praise, a vehicle for heavenly thought power, and many more things. Prayer is a necessary link to the power behind each of these gifts or weapons—Me. Though prayer and the keys are different, they’re connected when you call on the keys, because you’re communicating with Me as you do so, even if you were to just say, “I call on the keys,” which is prayer.

79. Prayer—your avenue of communication with Me—is the basic ingredient that must be present, and then all of the other new weapons enhance it. Praise enhances the power of prayer. The keys enhance the power of prayer. Loving Me intimately enhances the power of prayer. Prophecy enhances the power of prayer, because you can receive direction on how to pray on the spot‚ as I speak to your heart and show you how to pray most effectively.

80. Prayer does work change—great change. It always has and it always will. But prayer, when other spiritual weapons are used in conjunction with it, becomes more powerful. A simple prayer without any spiritual weapons to support it is powerful, but a prayer supported with the spiritual weapon of praise is more powerful. And it grows from there, meaning that a prayer supported with the weapons of praise, loving Me intimately, and the keys, is even more powerful!

81. If these different spiritual weapons didn’t enhance prayer and work greater change in the spirit world—through defeating the Enemy, speeding answers on their way, and much more—then what would be their purpose? If prayer were to only be as powerful as it always was, even if you were to use all of the new weapons in conjunction with it, then what would be the point of the new weapons? If they didn’t make things easier for My children, if they didn’t give greater power in the spirit to defeat the Enemy, and if they didn’t make prayer more powerful and give you quicker and more powerful answers, then why would I be stressing their importance over and over in message after message? It’s because they do hold power. It’s because they are vital for My warriors of today. It’s because they do enhance prayer and make it many, many times more effective.

82. That’s not to say that before you had all of these new weapons you never received instant answers to prayer—you did when the situations warranted it, and when you were in need of an instant miracle. I wouldn’t have left you destitute. You didn’t have information about all of the new weapons, so in praying desperately you were doing the best you knew how in any given situation. So when instant miracles were needed, I performed them for you. I didn’t just sit up in Heaven and say, “Oh, well, you haven’t accessed all of the power of the spirit world, so I can’t really change this situation immediately in answer to your prayer.” At the time, through simple prayer, you were accessing the full power of Heaven as you knew it, as it had been revealed to you, so I answered—and many times you saw instant miracles. But even those miracles will not compare to the future miracles I will do!

83. Today, with the greater knowledge of the new weapons and all that I have revealed to My Family, if someone were to find themselves in need of an instant miracle, they would be accountable to use all of the new weapons as they petitioned Me for a miracle. It’s because times and seasons have changed‚ and greater spiritual firepower is needed now. A simple prayer would no longer be enough because: 1) The Enemy is now more powerful than ever‚ the spiritual warfare has intensified, and greater power in the spirit world through the new weapons is required to defeat him and perform My miracles. 2) Each person in the Family is now more accountable‚ and to show their full desperation and desire for a miracle‚ they must use all of the weapons at their disposal. (End of message from Jesus)

What’s the difference between saying “the keys” and the one–word or very short prayers we sometimes pray now?

84. (Jesus: ) There’s a difference between praying, “Please heal Mama,” and, “I claim the keys of healing for Mama.” The latter is using the keys, which is accessing more power. It’s not that if you only pray, “Please heal Mama,” I’m not going to answer your prayer. I’ll just be a little limited in the power you’ve sent My way through your prayer. I’d have much more to work with if you’d called on the keys at the same time.

85. In saying, “The keys” in the way I’m explaining it in terms of your future power, you will be so linked with My Spirit and so well-versed in using the new weapons‚ and will have such great faith in My ability to do miracles, that in the second you say, “The keys,” you’ll be able to access the greatest power of Heaven available to you. It will be many spiritual weapons interlinked and in play at the same time, but the keys will be the ones that will pierce the veil for the miracle to come through. As I have said before, all of the weapons must work together, and you must use them in conjunction with each other and in conjunction with My will. That’s where heavenly thought power and being fully linked to My mind comes into play, because you’ll just know it’s My will in that very instant, and that builds unshakable faith.

86. It’s a matter of building your faith, honing your skills, and getting to the point where you’re so sure of Me and My power that you have total peace that I will answer. Right now, most people don’t have that kind of faith where they could just say a word and be so fully linked to My mind that they know My will, be so versed in using the weapon of praise that it’s a subconscious reaction, etc. So there are many differences between the short one-word prayers you pray today and what I am giving you a glimpse of for the future. But mainly it has to do with faith and being fully linked to Me. (End of message from Jesus.)

Why is it no longer enough to just pray in the Name of Jesus?

87. (Jesus:) Things have changed. Times have changed. As I’ve said many times, the ante has been upped on both sides in the spiritual war. While calling on My Name and standing on My promises from the Bible were enough for yesterday, they are not enough for today. This you will simply have to take by faith, realizing that I know best.

88. You see, I’ve got your very best interests at heart and I’m here at your side to help you win. So of course I’m going to give you the best weaponry, the most powerful I have available for you, and I’ve given it to you through the keys of the Kingdom. The keys of the Kingdom are what you need to unlock the spiritual realm. They are also a crucial part of the three–in–one power that I’ve given you to help you progress and win victories most effectively at this particular time in the spiritual warfare—and even more importantly in the days of the End to come. (See the excerpt from “What Is Jesus Worth to You” in paragraph 91.)

89. The keys are a very real entity—a part of the fusion of My power‚ which is the power that can cripple and defuse the Enemy’s power most effectively. Of course‚ you can still bind the Enemy’s power in My Name and through quoting scripture‚ but the weaponry of the keys far exceeds former armaments in effectively driving the Enemy back and performing miracles on My behalf! This is My weapon of choice for you today—one of those high-powered, high-tech weapons which you may not fully understand or comprehend‚ but one which I have promised works, and that’s what counts. Use that power faithfully and you’ll have no doubt as to its effectiveness in taking out the Enemy and performing miracles on your behalf! The proof of the pudding is in using the power‚ and once you’ve tasted of the results, you’ll realize that you don’t have to understand in order to believe.

90. The Enemy’s strongholds in the world and in the hearts of men have multiplied, and his power has been greatly magnified as a result. What worked against him yesterday will not work as effectively today. So you, as My elite cadre of disciples and soldiers, have been given the very best in weaponry through the gift of the keys and the benefit of training and instruction in their use.

Three-in-one Power! (From “What Is Jesus Worth to You?”)

91. (Jesus:) There is a fearsome battle being fought in the heavenlies! It is a battle royal, for the Enemy knows that his end is nigh. He fights his three greatest spiritual foes—Me, the Word, and the keys of the Kingdom—for we are one and the most powerful force in the world, in the heavens, in the universe. Satan knows that his end is drawing nigh, and he fights like a madman, savoring his last days in power as king of the netherworld, grasping at any thread of hope that his reign might be prolonged.

92. He has always fought My Word, but his attacks today are even more vicious and relentless. Never before have the battles in the spiritual and the physical realms been so intense as they are today.

93. Never has My Word been as powerful as it is today for you, My children. For up until recently, you had only two parts of the puzzle, and now you have all three—Me, My Word, and My keys. Me and My Word you have had since the beginning, because these are the basics of your spiritual weaponry. And only recently, as we have entered the Last Days, did I find it necessary to reveal to you the full power of the keys of the Kingdom, this additional portion of My power and your anointing for these Last Days. You must have all three parts, My loves—Me‚ My Word‚ and the keys—for we are one.

94. Don’t you see? The three pieces that fit together during these Last Days to defeat the Enemy, to give you power to rise to victory and to make it through till the End are Me, the Word, and the keys. Together, we are your salvation, your anointing‚ and without all three you won’t make it.

95. I am powerful, My Word is powerful, and the keys are powerful‚ but combined we are your vital companions in these Last Days! You will be fighting evil forces such as you have never imagined, and will need power such as you have not yet experienced, but which can only be achieved when I, the Word‚ and the keys are one in you.

96. To neglect My Word is to neglect Me, for I am one with My Word. To neglect the keys and their power is to neglect Me, for I am one with My keys. Thus the Enemy attacks in these two arenas, to get you to doubt, procrastinate, or lose your sense of urgency in the spirit. You can’t use the full power of the keys without the Word. You can’t use the full power of the Word without the keys. The Enemy knows this‚ and so he seeks to distract, divide and conquer.

97. The Enemy delves into each person’s heart to find out where their greatest weakness lies. The Enemy is the accuser of the saints, the tempter, and just as you are not ignorant of his devices, so he is not ignorant of your thoughts, desires and weaknesses. That is how he is able to use the mind as his battlefield in attacking you, for he can monitor it, to some extent. He does not know it as I do‚ nor does he have power over it as I do, but he can tempt and attack in these ways, and I allow this for the purpose of strengthening you, My loves. Your adversary is your friend in this respect, as I have said before, for he forces you to draw nigh to Me.

98. But if you are hesitant to use the keys, he enhances those feelings and fights to pull you back. If you are weak in the Word, he puts distractions in your life that make it even more difficult for you—busyness, things to do that you think are more important than time spent in the Word, doubts, familiarity, or perhaps just plain laziness.

99. Your adversary knows My power with My keys and My Word combined. He knows the plan I have for the End of Days. He knows that I am his demise, and that you will carry out My plan as My witnesses in these Last Days. But you cannot be My tools if you do not obey‚ if you do not know, live, breathe, and think My Word, and therefore this is where he attacks. You must let Me, My Word, and the keys become one with you, for unless all three are an integral part of your life, I will only be able to use you to a certain degree, but never fully.

100. The Word is not only something to keep you inspired, obeying, and on the right track, but it’s a spiritual substance that needs to run through your being continuously. If not, you won’t make it through the days ahead.

101. My Word must live within you, both now and in the days to come. My Word is a part of Me within you; it is part of your protection, part of your strength, part of what will separate you from the world, a part of your very being, and it works hand in hand with My keys so that you can access My full power.

102. There are chemical compounds on Earth, such as water, which is made up of the elements hydrogen and oxygen. Well, in the spirit it’s like that too. I‚ plus My Word, plus the keys, combine to make the fuel‚ power, spiritual stamina, authority, and everything you will need in the days to come—and today‚ now, is when you must prepare. It’s an Endtime phenomenon, a spiritual fact!

103. Be wise, My children‚ and heed My words‚ because tomorrow may be too late. (End of message from Jesus.) (ML #3433:67–69, 71-76, 79-81, 88‚ GN 1016).

End of text box.

How do the keys, prophecy, and the Bible all work together?

104. (Question:) Dear Peter and Mama, I would like to talk with you about the keys. When the Letters on the keys first came out‚ I studied them and researched them, really wanting to get behind this new move. I didn’t really understand, but I followed. Then, as the keys became more and more prominent in our spiritual life, I started to have questions, and now that they are on the same level as Jesus and the Word, I get attacked with doubts. I read and study the key promises, but it is just a plain fight to believe the power of the keys sometimes. I have to rebuke a lot of attacks in my mind.

105. I do pray in the name of the keys, I claim them. I just battle with the fact that they became so important, as important as Jesus. I do not have any church background, but I get attacked with thoughts that we are straying from our foundation, from the Bible. I have a bad memory, and Lord help me, I haven’t memorized much in the past few years, and having to memorize all the key promises when I have been neglecting my verses has been a battle. I am sorry. I want to believe. If the keys are the Word, so be it; Lord help my unbelief. I have had to take some of our new moves by faith at times, but the battles never lingered as this one is.

106. P.S. I couldn’t send you this without asking the Lord about my battles regarding the keys, as I know that this is the first thing you would ask me to do. Lord help me to develop the habit of asking Him everything, especially these important things which touch at my faith. Here is my question and what my dear Lover told me:

107. (Prayer:) Sweet Jesus, why am I having all these battles about the keys? Is there anything You can tell me to help me through it?

108. (Jesus:) Trust, My love. Trust Me and trust your shepherds. Have I ever failed you, and have they? The keys are a new language to express some realities of the spirit world that are new to you. It is a means to communicate these realities. It is an expression, a bridge between the world of My Spirit and your world. Flow with it, embrace them, and as you do, you will experience their power more and more‚ and you will know firsthand that the keys work.

109. For now‚ do flow with the move‚ even though you do not understand it, even though the emphasis on the keys causes you to hesitate. Rebuke the hesitation and go in by faith. You do not understand. That is fine, you do not need to understand. You just need to do, to obey, to follow, and as you do‚ the understanding, or at least the faith, will come. Do not dwell on your doubts; step on them as you take your steps of faith; give them to Me as you turn to Me, just as you do now, to have My mind, and keep going by faith. (End of message from Jesus)

110. (Note from Mama:) I just have to say here, dear one‚ that I’m so proud of you for taking your questions to the Lord like that. The Lord can always give the answers that will give you peace and faith and set you on the road to victory once again‚ if you’re willing to receive them. Peter and I love you dearly and are praying for you, and we pray this further answer from the Lord that follows helps to answer your questions as well.

111. (Jesus:) My sweet one, how I long to gently wipe away the doubts that the Enemy flings at you. You look at yourself and you see weakness; but I look at you and see the strength of weakness, which will stand through every test. My love, you are battling with this because you’re seeing something in the wrong perspective. You separate the Word, Me, and the keys, but we are one.

112. Claiming the keys is not abandoning the Word or Me—just as My words of prophecy through My servant David enhanced the Bible and helped bring it to life for so many because it was My Word pouring through My mouthpiece. You didn’t have to debase My Word in the Bible to accept the living current Word I was giving. Even so, the keys enhance both the Bible and My Word to you through My mouthpieces today. They further strengthen your connection with Me, for the keys are Me.

113. I came to Earth not to destroy the words of the old testament, but to fulfill them and to take the faithful to the next level in our relationship. My prophets throughout the ages have continued to do the same. Likewise, claiming the keys is merely the next level of empowering My Endtime prophets with the connection to Me that they will need in order to survive and flourish in the days ahead.

114. A good thing to remember is what I have said already, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” Do the keys work? Do they empower My children? Do they help to bring the words to life as you use them? Of course, to find out, you have to step out by faith and try them out, claiming them with all your heart to see the fruits.

115. A key unlocks something more. It doesn’t mean that you leave the things from before behind and don’t use them. A key opens a new realm or a new room or treasure to you. You don’t lose what you had before, nor does it take the place of what you had before. My Word—the Bible, the words I poured through David and continue to pour through Maria and Peter‚ and the words I am pouring each day through My channels, even through you each time you hear from Me—give you the power to keep going.

116. all these are one. When you began to receive My voice of prophecy, it didn’t lessen the Bible hidden in your heart, but fulfilled and enhanced it. So it is with the keys. These are not to lessen your faith in the Bible or in Me, for they are from Me.

117. You have memorized My written Word in the Bible and have brought it to life through using it, and I love to see you standing on My Word. Now there is a need to learn to stand on and make good use of the keys as well, and to do so you must focus on building a foundation in their use so that you will become accustomed to using them.

118. My Word, both old and new, is critical to your functioning. I don’t want you to abandon any one of these—the Bible, the Word for today, nor your connection to Me through the keys. All are important and you must keep all three in use, working together.

119. The difference is that whereas you didn’t need the keys of the Kingdom before, you need them today. You don’t need the Bible or the other promises I’ve given any less, but you do need the keys for the situations you’ll be faced with both now and in the future. The keys don’t lessen the power of the Bible, but fine-tune and enhance it by addressing the need even more precisely. You will never find a key promise that is contrary to the Bible, any more than you would find My Word of true prophecy contradicting the Bible. They are one.

120. And while the Bible is My foundation, built to keep you safe, I did not mean for you to leave it as a bare foundation. When you build a house, you begin with the foundation. But then the master carpenter must build the structure on that foundation. As long as you’re sticking to that foundation and not building on the sand around it, as long as you’re following My blueprint and always being faithful to check back and make sure you’re sticking to it, then this doesn’t detract from the foundation nor lessen its importance.

121. Your foundation is Me, My Word—and that includes the Bible, the revelations through David, Maria and Peter, My Word of the moment spoken to your heart in prophecy, and the key promises‚ which are a part of Me and My Word. Just as you claim a Bible verse or stand on a promise that I have given to you in prophecy, so should you stand on these key promises given by Me.

122. Each key promise I have either given directly in prophecy or have led My queen to collect from prophecies that I have previously given. In a few instances I have taken a promise from My written Word in the Bible and applied it to a situation in the name of the keys. But no matter what, they are given directly from Me to you, specifically for today‚ My loves. The keys are as limitless as the promises from My mouth, and as you grow to realize their full magnitude, you will come to understand that they are a further refinement and fulfillment of My love for you. (End of message from Jesus)

Did you know…

That the Lord talked about the keys in 1998‚ before the “Keys of the Kingdom” revelation?

123. (Jesus to Mama:) Before you left Heaven, you were one of the keepers of My Words. You were one of the few that held the keys to the treasure vaults and treasure chests of Heaven. I sent that key with you—you have it to this day! You have the key to unlock the mysteries of the spirit world. You have the key to unlock the treasure chests of Heaven. This is an awesome privilege that I’ve given to you and to My children in these Last Days. I knew that there would be a famine in the land for My Words, so I sent you, My love, to be the keeper of the key and to unlock the treasures.

124. Never before in the history of the world has this key been endowed with such power! Never before have I unlocked the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven as I have in this day, because it was not yet My time. Never before have I given such authority to mankind. You are Maria of the End‚ the prophetess, the unlocker of the mysteries of Heaven, and the flow will never stop as long as you keep desiring Me‚ keep sucking My seeds and passing them on to My children.

125. …This world will never see another Maria. This world will never receive another such key to the vaults of Heaven. This world will never have another chance. You, My Family, are the last ones. You’re the final set‚ you’re the grand finale, and you hold the final keys! I have ordained this from the very beginning…

126. Many will flock to you in the days to come because you hold the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven! You hold the keys to My Words, and all of those who have tapped into this same power will have strength that they know not of. Each of My children has the power to connect to this key that unlocks the treasures of Heaven, the jewels from Beyond, My Words and the wonderful mysteries of the Spirit. All they have to do is ask. All they have to do is suck and desire it, just like you suck and desire and love Me so intimately and so passionately. (ML #3193:86-88, 91, GN 798).

Are the keys replacing the Word, love, prayer—the other spiritual powers that we’ve had to win victories with?

127. (Question:) Many of the key promises we claim every day are quite generalized, giving me the impression that the keys are the answer to absolutely everything. The impression I get is that the keys do everything that the Word, love, and prayer have already been doing since … well … forever. From reading up on the subject, I realize that the idea of the keys is that they add more power to everything we do, but when they are generalized so much to the point that they almost seem to replace these other important spiritual gifts and principles, it causes the key promises to lose their power and potency for me.

128. This also makes it difficult for me to memorize them‚ because I almost feel like I could take any verse or quote and add “by the power of the keys” to it and then not be sure if that is actually a key promise or something I just finished making up.

129. (Jesus:) The fact that the power of the keys represents power to do absolutely anything and overcome absolutely any impossibility should not be seen as a drag and a confusing fact, but as a great blessing! There are many aspects of the keys you haven’t even begun to fathom, and as you start connecting the dots through the Word that I give you on the keys, your understanding of them will be fuller and more well rounded. But don’t expect to understand everything about them now or be able to use their full power all at once, because that’s just not going to happen!

130. The keys do not replace the power of prayer—they complement your prayers. When you claim the keys in your prayers, just like when you claim the Word in prayer, or use the new weapons in your prayers, your prayers become more powerful. The keys are a fulfillment of My promises to you to release greater power to you in the End of Days.

131. The keys represent the enhanced power that I’ve released to you. I could have chosen to call them something else, but I chose to call them the keys—and that name represents the enhanced and magnified power that I’ve released to you for this time in history when you desperately need it. It’s a spiritual power, and that’s what you must have faith in—not getting hung up on the name, or why I have dubbed a great spiritual power after an earthly object, or whatever other tricks the Enemy uses.

132. I have given you leeway to call Me many different names. There is Jesus, Jehovah‚ Lord‚ King‚ Savior, and many‚ many more. But the important thing is not what you call Me in every instance, but that you depend on My power‚ My being, the essence of My Spirit. So with the keys, I would not that My children get hung up on a name, or that the words “the keys” distract them. I could have chosen to call that spiritual power anything I wanted to, but this great, magnificent power of Heaven was dubbed by royal decree “the keys.” They part the veil between you and the power sources of Heaven, and put you in direct contact with the Source.

133. It’s not that what you had before wasn’t good enough for those days—it was plenty good enough, more than a match for the Devil’s power at the time. It was “all the power of Heaven” that you needed at that time. But now you need more power, greater and more instantaneous results‚ so I’ve given you the keys. It’s just that simple. But keep reminding yourself that the keys and the Word are one. The keys and My love are one.

134. I know the sweeping and magnificent key promises, the ones that say “there are no impossibilities” or “all things are possible through the keys,” are a little hard to fathom. But this is why I’ve presented them now‚ before you actually need them in active Endtime warfare, so you can become accustomed to them, and so the keys become an irreplaceable part of your lives. I want the keys to be the first thing on your lips when you hit a crisis or face a need.

135. The keys are Me! The keys are My power. The keys are My Word. The keys are My love. The keys represent all that is available to you in the form of spiritual power released for this day and age.

136. As a challenge and assignment for you, when you do come across a general key promise that doesn’t hold much meaning for you because it’s so general and sweeping, stop and ask Me how to apply that to your life, how to break it down for you, how to put it into specific terms. Ask Me, “Lord, exactly what do You mean‚ in specifics, when You promise that, ‘Nothing on Earth or in Hell can withstand the power of the keys of the Kingdom, which you have access to at any time.'” Or, “Lord, please break it down for me so that I can better understand the following promise in real, everyday terms: ‘When you wield the power of the keys, which are energetic, multidimensional, all-encompassing, penetrating, and nourishing, nothing is impossible to you.'”

137. Do you trust in My love? Do you believe that I’m the Answer Man? Do you think I would lead you astray or give you something that was merely ornamental, without any practical use, at a time when you so desperately need a new infilling of power? I’m married to you. I’m eager to answer your questions. I’m eager to help you to apply this keys revelation to your personal life. Just ask Me. Ask in faith, nothing wavering, and through the power of the keys, you will have what you desire. (End of message from Jesus.)

Text box:

138. (Jesus: ) Every time you use the keys, your faith grows and you learn a little bit more about them. Similarly, every time you pray about questions regarding the keys‚ your faith grows and you learn a little bit more about them. That’s the beauty of the keys: There’s no end to what you will discover about them‚ what you will learn in relation to them, and the bits of knowledge you will garner at every step of your walk to discover their secrets. Just as there is no end to what you will learn about Me‚ because I am full of mystery and will always show you new things—regarding life, regarding your service to Me, or regarding My Being—so it is with the keys.

End of text box.

If the keys are so important, why didn’t we hear about them before?

139. (Question:) One thing I sometimes wonder about is why didn’t we hear about the keys all these years? Not just now, but for centuries. I know they’ve been reserved for us, but I would like to have more information on this so that when it comes time for me to explain the keys to some outsider or church Christian‚ I’ll have the info I need as to what they are‚ why we haven’t heard about them before‚ was that really what Jesus was referring to when He told Peter He was giving him the keys, etc. I think Catholics will have trouble reconciling our use of the keys to that scripture, so I’d like to find out for sure that this is what Jesus was referring to.

140. (Jesus:) The keys have been in existence, as a part of My heavenly power source‚ used as an illustration and representation of My divinity, since before I came to Earth. When I walked on Earth with My disciples, I told them of this power. I gave this power to them—to Peter, yes, but to all of them as well. They accepted it, and they learned to use it in some measure.

141. The power of the keys is not an entirely new thing. The difference is that in these Last Days I have opened a fuller and deeper understanding of them to you, the children of David. There are many truths within the Bible that were understood on some level at the time they were given, and then later were understood on a deeper level, and which I then revealed to David and his children on a yet deeper level—and when you come to Heaven, you will marvel at the depths you have not yet seen.

142. That’s one of the marvelous things about My Word and about the Bible—it provides treasures new and old. You can never say that you’ve discovered everything, for even if you have read it all and even understood it all on some level, there are deeper levels to many scriptures, and I choose when and how and to whom to reveal these truths.

143. There have been others of My children throughout history—powerful apostles, miracle workers, and saints—who have used the keys of the Kingdom to some degree, not really understanding or grasping the power that is available through them. They didn’t fully understand it, for I had not revealed this measure of truth about the keys.

144. (Mama:) The Lord talks about this more in depth later, how Christians throughout the ages have had access to a measure of the keys’ power, but He reserved the full power for us, because we would need it in these days of increased spiritual intensity.

145. (Jesus continues:) I have chosen to reveal a fuller knowledge, insight, and understanding of the power of the keys to you, the children of David‚ than to any others. Why?—Because you are worthy, and because desperate times require desperate measures.

146. You are the ones who will go through the Great Tribulation and endure the most difficult time the world has ever known. I have promised to care for My Own, and I have cared for My Own throughout the centuries. Does it not stand to reason that I would reserve the greatest power and the fullest understanding of My power for those who must go through the darkest days and the greatest persecutions and tribulations?

147. I have promised that I will never allow you to undergo what you are not able to bear, and the truth be told‚ the only way that you will be able to survive and endure and continue to fulfill My mission during the dark days ahead will be through the power of the keys. You need greater power, and a greater understanding of the use of that power‚ than the Christians of previous eras needed.

148. I know that this thought may bring fear to some of you, for you recall stories of the martyrs of the past, of the sacrifices and hardships endured by many for My Name’s sake‚ and you wonder how the days ahead could possibly be worse than that. But if you feel that way, if fear and dread fall upon you, then you’re missing the point—which is that because the power I am giving you is greater and stronger, these times will not in fact be more difficult for you than they were for those Christian heroes of times past. In fact‚ in some cases they will be even less difficult. Where there is greater darkness, there is greater light.

149. I provide the balance of power. If I allow the Enemy more power over the world, which will be the case when the Dragon is cast from Heaven and achieves full dominion over the world’s kingdoms‚ then I must in turn give greater power to My children.

150. I chose not to wait until the days of great darkness to give you this power, but to give it to you in advance, so that you could become familiar with it and comfortable with it, and gain an understanding of it. I know it is a great and mighty truth and a deep mystery, and it takes faith‚ time, and hearing from Me and receiving My words and explanations to understand it and live it. Now you have time for such things as bringing your questions about the keys to Me and getting My insight, My understanding, My explanations. You have time to build and strengthen your faith. In days to come, it will not be as peaceful and things will not be as organized within your structure. You will not have the same ability to produce and receive publications and communicate with your brethren. You will not have the same time to reflect‚ meditate, and study My Word. You will not have the same access to My printed Word.

151. By then, you will need to be strong in the power already, with an unshakable confidence. You will be using it daily—and not just using it in your personal lives or for the healing of your afflictions or for the occasional serious situation, as you are doing now, which is practice, albeit serving a very needful purpose as well—but then you will be using it in life-or-death situations on a regular basis.

152. The power of the keys has always been available, but it was hidden behind a veil, a veil of understanding, that I have torn down only now in these Last Days, so that you might have the spiritual weapon you need to see you through the dark days ahead—the darkest days ever known to man, for which you will need the brightest and most pure and powerful light of Heaven—the light of the keys, to illuminate your path! (End of message from Jesus.)

If the keys are so important, why did Jesus only mention them once or twice in the New Testament?

153. (Jesus:) The keys were important then, but they are much more important now than they were in those days. The main principle of the keys was important—the concept of “all power” that was given to Me and then given to you. But the times were not as desperate nor as severe as they will be in times ahead, and those who were learning to use My power did not need as deep an understanding of it‚ much less of the keys and how they will be used in the days to come.

154. You‚ My children of David, have had a great deal of input and have a deep understanding of My Word. In comparison, My early disciples were spiritual babes. They were practically ignorant of all spiritual truth before I came along and brought them light. They were not able or prepared to receive the fuller, more complex explanations regarding the methods and mechanisms of the spiritual world. It was enough for them to understand that they could call on My power and I would work for them—and I did, in marvelous and dramatic ways. In some ways I made it easier on them, because they had less light, less truth‚ and yet they had to be the pioneers.

155. I had to take them where they were at and take them as far and as fast as I could, but they were carnal-minded‚ simple, human, and not learned in the ways of the world, neither learned in a deep understanding of the spirit world. I had three short years to pour a great deal of truth and knowledge into them. And while this training was more than enough to get them rolling, to start a spiritual revolution that would in time sweep the world and bring salvation to mankind, still, there was only limited time and so much to do in that time.

156. I gave them what they needed for then, and in so doing I also left enough information behind in My Words that they recorded in the Gospels, so that as time went on, more and greater and deeper truths could be discovered, as they were needed. (End of message from Jesus.)

Are we “reading into” the verses when we put so much emphasis on the keys?

157. (Question: ) Why has the Lord allowed us in the Family to discover the Law of Love‚ the keys, the loving Jesus revelation‚ and other such revelations, based on a few verses in the Bible, and have them eventually become cornerstones of our way of life? Are we “reading into” the verses, and how would you explain the keys to a dyed-in-the-wool Christian believer?

158. (Jesus: ) You are not “reading into” these verses. I have simply chosen, at this time, to reveal the deeper meaning of these truths to you. These things such as the Law of Love and the keys of the Kingdom stand out as being “new doctrines,” and they are radical and fresh and Heaven-sent. But they’re not really “new,” because they are solidly based on scripture, as I have explained.

159. Those who recorded the Bible only had time and memory and ability to write down so much. As John said, if every word I spoke and everything I did were written down, the world itself could not have contained the books that would have been written. But I ensured that there was enough written down that it would open the doors of understanding to those who needed that understanding, in their time. The Bible is a guidebook, it is your foundation; it contains all the principles upon which all your doctrines must be based. And yet there are many things that are mentioned only briefly, or sometimes cryptically—but they are there just the same.

160. Just because everyone who reads the Bible doesn’t come away with the same understanding or full interpretation of the deeper truths that I have given you doesn’t make these truths far-fetched or false. The fact is that there is nothing in the Bible that disproves or disputes these doctrines and beliefs. There is no way to prove from the Bible that you cannot use the keys of the Kingdom in such a fashion as you do. By the same token, there is no way to prove from the Bible that your application of the Law of Love and the spiritual and physical freedom that it brings are not correct. Some people try pretty hard on that one, but those who are willing to balance scripture with scripture, to be honest and open to the right interpretation, will in the end admit that your beliefs are based on solid scripture.

161. Similarly with the revelations about loving Me intimately—the basics are all there in the Bible, about you being My bride, about us being married, about spiritual sex. This is something that My saints throughout the ages have understood and accepted to varying degrees. I took you just a little bit further and made things a little bit clearer, more black-and-white and graphic—but the essence of the truth itself didn’t change any. It’s the same with the keys.

162. The basic principles are there, and they are indisputable. I have, however, expanded and expounded upon what was written in the Bible, to give you greater understanding and insight into this power I have given you, because I know you have need of it.

163. When explaining the keys to others, you can begin by quoting the verse which mentions them. “And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven” (Mat.16:19). To put it simply, whatever you ask will be given to you, through the power of the keys.

164. How much power is this? It is the same power I have, as I told My first disciples: “All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth” (Mat.28:18). That is the same power I have given you, “the power to become the sons of God” like Me (John 1:12). It is the power to cast out devils, to tread on serpents and scorpions, to ask what you will, to know that nothing is impossible unto you, all of which—and more—is described in My Word.

165. Ultimately it is a matter of faith whether someone decides to believe or not, just as it is when someone decides to receive Me. In the end, My sheep will hear My voice and will follow Me‚ so fret not. (End of message from Jesus)

Mysterious Keys, The–Part 2

Karen Zerby

FEAST 2004

By MariaMaria #665 CM/FM 3473 10/03

Continued from Part 1, GN 1060

How come we never saw the keys in the spirit world before?

1. (Question: ) Since their revelation to us, the keys now turn up all over the place in visions of the spirit world, whereas they didn’t before. I understand that they were only recently revealed to us‚ but it seems they were in operation in the spirit world all along, so it would seem that they might have been noticeable before if all these spirit helpers have them somehow emblazoned on their bodies or on their gear.

2. (Jesus:) The reason you didn’t see the keys before in your visions is because I had not revealed them to you.

3. When I saw some of My disciples after I was raised from the dead, we walked for quite a distance and talked of many spiritual things. As they were turning off to go into the village where they were staying, I made it appear as if I would be going on. They pleaded with Me to come stay with them‚ telling Me it was already quite late in the day. So I went with them and we had dinner. As we sat down to eat, I took bread and blessed it and gave it to them and “opened their eyes,” and they knew Who I was—and then I vanished out of their sight! That was quite a surprise for them, to say the least. They told each other after I left, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures?”

4. As I have opened your eyes to your spirit helpers who are arrayed and carrying the keys‚ has it not borne witness of all that I have told you in the past? Although the keys would have been noticeable in visions you received in the past, it was not My time for you to see them and therefore I “hid” them from you until the time was right. So many truths I have blessed you with, and there are new ones to come, for you have grown strong and are ready for more “meat.”

5. You must always remember that the spiritual world is different than the one you live in now. Some things are similar, but the spiritual world is so far beyond what you can comprehend in the flesh that you’re basically guaranteed to stumble if you try to fit the spiritual world into what you know from the physical world. It simply doesn’t work. It doesn’t fit.

6. In some cases I’ve revealed your helpers to you with keys emblazoned on their bodies or as part of their weaponry to help you comprehend the power that they carry in a way that you can remember it and associate it with the power I’ve given you. In other cases, the spiritual beings really do have those as part of their permanent décor or adornment as a testimony and statement and constant witness to all those of the spiritual realm, almost as a means to give the glory to Me, and to make the Enemy tremble.

7. They are proud of the source of their power, and have chosen to wear it as a testimony. This is not always permanent, but many of them chose to wear the keys when they were revealed to you so that you’d remember them that way, and so in seeing them, you’re reminded to give Me the glory and to call on the keys as well.

8. Remember to stay flexible and flowing, My loves. As you follow Me step by step, it is important to be open to change. I’m taking you deeper into the spirit world. You will need to leave the carnal mind behind and embrace My thoughts and ways. In letting go of your thoughts and ways you will experience freedom you have never known and the power of the keys will come to life as never before. As you allow Me full possession, I will be able to fulfill My commission in each of you. Let go today! (End of message from Jesus.)

How do we find the right balance of claiming key promises and scriptures?

9. (Question: ) What should we teach our kids about claiming Bible promises and keys? What’s the balance? We’ve been claiming Bible promises for many years‚ but what about our young children? How do we teach them to have solid faith in their Bible promises, while at the same time the adults are now mostly claiming key promises and memorizing those more than their Bible verses?

10. Are the keys going to replace the promises in the Bible, as far as the Family is concerned? If so, is that a good thing? We adults are all being encouraged to memorize key promises, so it follows that we will also encourage our children to do the same. They (and we) can only memorize and review so much, so the more keys they (we) memorize, the less Bible they (we) will be able to memorize or review.

11. The Bible promises we all memorized as babes gave us something in common not only with our fellow Family members, but also with other Christians now and down through the ages. The set card and Memory Book gave us all the same solid foundation of scripture. But with so many key promises to choose from, and more coming all the time, coupled with Mama’s explanation that it’s okay to condense or reword them as needed and as the Lord leads, what was once rock-solid common ground seems more like shifting sand.—Not that the key promises are necessarily any less valid than those Bible promises‚ but there is less and less of a clear standard with the key promises, and it can only become more so as we get more and more of them and as they continue to be adapted according to each individual’s faith and needs and memorization capabilities, etc.

12. It would be nice to know whether it’s more important to claim a key promise over a Bible verse promise‚ or if they’re equal in power. Like where do the Bible verses now stand that we used to claim when praying? Should we still claim them‚ or only key promises? Are Bible verses still as powerful, or are key promises more powerful? Are the keys different from Bible verses, and if so, how? Are they part of the “new weapons” and therefore more useful and powerful than Bible verses?

13. (Dad:) God is ever moving, ever changing, and He’s given a new set of promises that you can claim and memorize‚ much like He delivered new Word through me. However, just as with the new Word that came through me, the Bible is the foundation. It’s the foundation stone of our beliefs and doctrines.

14. When it comes to reading the Word, you need both. The Letters give you the Word for today. That’s important. But you still need to know the Word from the past. It’s important to know the Gospels, and to know a bit of Bible history, and very important to be well versed in Bible prophecy about the Last Days. These things are important. But you won’t do well at living and applying the Bible today if you aren’t coupling it with fresh Word for today.

15. It’s good to know the Bible. And for your children and new disciples, it’s also very important to teach them the Bible. Getting to know Jesus from the Gospels helps them understand more about Him today. They can’t get to know Him as deeply if they only learn about Him from the newly printed Word. Also, some Bible history from the Old Testament and the Book of Acts helps to solidify one’s beliefs. But you can’t be a good, strong Family member if you only study the old. The New Wine is very important‚ and when it comes down to what you need most at this time in history‚ I would rather you spend the majority of your hours of studying the Word in studying the Letters and the Lord’s counsel for today.

16. It’s like the verse, “Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper.” You can apply that to the Bible and the New Wine. To be established, you need to know the foundation from the Bible. But to prosper‚ you must have the Letters.

17. Now let’s relate this to the key promises. Your children should be focusing on memorizing from the Memory Book‚ and then the key promises.

18. For children, memory work comes easily. It’s not going to be difficult for them to memorize more than just what is in the Memory Book. Where it gets difficult is that many children have sadly been allowed to fall behind in their memory work. If you’ve got a teen or JETT or preteen who hasn’t memorized much, that child hasn’t been well prepared for learning the keys, and there’s some catch-up work to be done.

19. Those older kids will need to be memorizing both. I’d have them concentrate on getting the Memory Book down. But even with that, the keys are so simple to memorize‚ they can easily memorize one or two key promises a week as well.

20. One purpose of memorizing the Bible is so that you have a rock-solid foundation of Word in your heart.

21. The purpose of memorizing the key promises is so that you learn to wield this new power that has been granted to you.

22. Because of this‚ you need to memorize both. And because of this‚ your new disciples and your children need to concentrate on the Bible memory work in the Memory Book.

23. However‚ they can also be memorizing key promises, one or two a week, at the same time as they’re concentrating on getting their basic Bible verses down. With the key promises, they don’t have to get them so word perfect, and that makes it easier to memorize them. So it won’t be difficult for them to add a couple of key promises into their memory work each week, even while mainly focusing on memorizing the most important Bible verses until they’ve completed the Memory Book or the Word curriculum standard for their age. (End of message from Dad.)

*

24. (Jesus:) In the days to come, you’ll want both. Your kids will want both. They will want Bible passages that they can review to keep their hearts close to Me. This holds true as well for the days when you don’t have Word books at your fingertips. But you’ll also want those key promises.

25. When you’re praying together, it’s important to use the key promises. This shows that you believe I’m doing a new thing by giving you this greater—in fact, direct—link with Heaven. And you should be doing this around your new disciples and children too.

26. But when claiming promises, it’s important to also include the Bible promises, especially around children and new disciples. The kids need to see the Word they are encouraged to memorize put into action. It’s a must. If they are only memorizing but not seeing it used and put into action, it will just seem like dreariness to them. So you need to use both key promises and Bible verses in your classes and prayers. And they need to use both too.

27. There’s currently a large swing toward memorizing the key promises. But if you look back over the prophecies‚ there is nothing in there that says these supersede the Bible promises.

28. The new promises I have given you bring to life all the promises of the Bible and make it possible for them to be fulfilled with greater ease and completeness in the days you’re living in, because the obstructions between Heaven and Earth are now overcome by the promise of the keys.

29. I have not replaced the promises I’ve given in the Bible; I’ve enhanced them with the promise of the keys. (End of message from Jesus)

30. (Dad:) When the MO Letters started coming out, I often quoted the Bible to you to show you that the foundation for what I was saying was solid. Some folks had to have that, the ones who were raised in the churches and on the Bible, because their faith was in the old wine. It’s not that the old wine wasn’t good. It was, and it still is. It’s just that our God is a moving God, folks. He’s a changing God. He’s constantly improving. He’s up with the times. He’s a very now generation God. Isn’t that the way you would want Him to be?

31. Times change, so God changes with the times to accommodate people in order to get His Word to them. His Word changes not, that’s the thing you need to remember. Jesus was the Word made flesh. Before He came to Earth, the prophets received the Word of God, which they passed on to the people, but when Jesus came‚ as you can tell from the Gospels, it caused no small stir among the religionists of His day.

32. He spoke the Word and it came alive. He spoke the Word and it was relatable. He spoke the Word and it was easy for people to remember. He didn’t speak with enticing words of man’s wisdom‚ but in demonstration of the Spirit and with power. Jesus was God’s new bottle, bringing His message to the people with power—more power than they had ever experienced before! He was a miracle worker. His miracles weren’t for mere show, but they were a demonstration of the Spirit. When performing miracles, Jesus constantly drew people’s attention and focus to the Word.

33. And because of that, He was accused of being demon possessed. He was accused of being a blasphemer, one who didn’t follow the Word, one who twisted the Word. What do you think those old Pharisees must have thought when Jesus took their hallowed Word of God and brought it up to date when He was on Earth?

34. Beloved, fear not to teach and preach the keys. As the MO Letters are to the Bible, so are the keys to the Word. They are in unity. They complement one another. As the Bible was the foundation for the MO Letters, so is the Bible the foundation of the keys. Have faith, beloved!

35. People used to surprise me when they would memorize and quote from my Letters. I got a little concerned about that. The Lord told me not to worry. He told me that the foundation was right. The foundation was God’s Word. As long as the foundation is the Word, you can be at peace and have full faith that you’re moving in the right direction.

36. The keys are God’s Word for today, just as much as the Letters are! They do not contradict the Word; they complement it. They are also unique in that they are God’s gift to you for this time in history, and they make available to you the full power of God, because you are going to need it! If you are going to go through the Great Tribulation, a time when there will “be affliction such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be” (Mark 13:19), wouldn’t you like to have the keys available to see you through? The Lord, in His infinite love for you, wants to give you all that you need. You didn’t need it before. You do need it now. So go for it!

37. Don’t be afraid to memorize key promises. They enhance the written Word and are one with the Word. The combined three-in-one power is what you’re going to need to survive in a horrible world, a place where the spiritual reality is as the angel told John in the Book of Revelation, “the habitation of devils, the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” (Rev.18:2). Rejoice that the Lord loves you so much that He is giving you the power to not only do the works He did, but greater works. You’re going to need that power.

38. Of course‚ the power doesn’t come without you meeting the conditions. That’s where the Word Revolution comes into the picture. This is God’s program for success. The Lord is of such tender mercy. He’s offering you time to be ready when the lights go out. Every day that passes is one less day you have. Please memorize the Word. Please hide His Word in your heart that you might not sin against Him in that day when great evil is upon the Earth. Be sure you are faithful to take quality time in the Word and apply the Word to yourselves personally and take the steps to change.

39. Call on the keys and claim the Word. All the Word that you have stored in your heart—Bible, MO quotes, and key promises—will work together to be your strength‚ your stability, your comfort, your power and protection, your grace‚ and the wellspring of love and joy in your heart that will enable you to stand strong as witnesses during the worst days this world has ever known. Now is the time to tap into the three–in-one power, beloved. That is the power for the hour which is coming upon the Earth, when men’s hearts will fail them for fear, when all the world will wonder after the Beast, when power will be given to the Beast over all kindreds, tongues, and nations.

40. There are going to be great signs and wonders happening on Earth, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. That’s you, beloved—you, the Lord’s called and chosen ones. Satan will deceive the nations, but he won’t be able to deceive you, if you hide the Word in your heart. It is the Word that will keep you—only the Word. It is the only true standard. Those key promises are God’s Word. The Bible is God’s Word. The MO Letters are God’s Word. Mama’s Letters are God’s Word.

41. Stretch your “wineskins”! It is only by stretching, yielding‚ believing and imbibing (taking in) God’s Word for today that you will be able to remain the new bottles that the Lord will be using tomorrow to pour out from. If these things are difficult for you, just wait! There are more “strange truths” that He has yet to reveal. Stretch, my children. Don’t become brittle‚ unbendable, unmovable, and unchangeable. Don’t become stagnant.

42. Remember my Letter, “All Things Change”? Let the Lord wash away all those dregs in your spirit, the things that are polluting you, your carnal mind and thoughts. Let Him wash that away and open the eyes of your mind and spirit to His Word as never before. The water will be pure and healthy. You might find the water to be like the kids did in my dream, “Strange Truths” (ML #360, Vol.3). There may be “little creatures” in it, but the Source is good. The water comes from God. It will quench your thirst and give you the strength you need to carry on.

43. I don’t want you to “forget the past,” as in throw out the Bible verses now. Incorporate the keys into the Word you have already. You need both! So don’t be afraid to call on the keys‚ claim the keys, and teach the keys. Your young ones need that key power just like you do. Just as you were fed by the MO Letters and quotes and were strengthened, so will the keys strengthen your children. The keys and the Word are one. Teach your children to use the keys. The keys of the Kingdom are given to them too. Power to the people of the keys! (End of message from Dad.)

Did you know…

That we need additional spiritual protection in order to use the keys?

That the keepers of the power source of Heaven were given to us to help us learn how to use this power?

(Printed 2001, about the keepers of the power sources of Heaven:)

44. (Jesus: ) I gave each of you the keys to Heaven and Hell—the power of Heaven and dominion over Hell. These are not tangible, physical keys; nevertheless, it was an enlarging of My power in you. To use these keys requires faith, wisdom, and a mighty protective field around you. So as I gave you the keys‚ I sent these keepers who transferred the power to you, and who will stand by you as added protectors of the portion of My Spirit that I am entrusting you with. Through them I will also help you learn to enlarge your faith and to use this power in the days to come. Put your trust in these beings, for they contain the secrets of the power of Heaven. They are directly connected to My mind, which commands these power sources. (ML #3351:5‚ GN 946).

End of text box.

Why do we have to have so many new key promises?

45. (Question: ) Why do there have to be so many keys and so many key promises? Is there ever going to be an end to them? Are they all really needed? I believe in the keys and their power‚ but it seems that just a few general ones would cover all situations and therefore suffice—like some of the main Bible promises, or even just the one verse on which all of this keys business is based: “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven” (Matthew 16:19).

46. Instead, there are already hundreds of keys for just about everything imaginable, and hundreds of key promises—way too many for me to remember. Also, since the Lord has said that we can ask Him for specific keys for any situation, can’t those who want something really specific just ask for, receive, and claim what they need at the time, without every one of them needing to be recorded and published for the whole Family?

47. (Jesus:) I understand that you probably feel glutted with all the key promises, and overwhelmed if you think about trying to memorize and use each one at the right time. That’s not the goal, nor My intention. The keys of the Kingdom that I’ve given to you work—they work when you call on them and when you’re living the requirements for using them. When you reach out to Me and My power and specifically invoke the power of the keys, they are there for you, whether you quote a key promise or not.

48. The many key promises are for you, My loves‚ not simply to multiply the keys. The keys are all-powerful, and I don’t need to be reminded of what they can and can’t do. My call to you to memorize the key promises is to help them become a part of your life, for you to have My Words ingrained in your heart, so that when you face a battle, a test, a difficulty, or an impossible situation, the promises will come back to your mind and remind you of what the keys can do.

49. The promises put into words what I can do for you through the keys. The promises remind you of some of the conditions that are necessary in using the keys. The promises are My Words to you—alive, moving, changing, powerful—and when you memorize them‚ that power and faith and spiritual strength becomes part of you.

50. It’s not a competition to see who can memorize the most, or a race to see who can memorize the fastest. It’s simply storing My Word in your heart in obedience to Me, which will help you and keep you in the times to come. It’s reminding you of My promises over and over as you memorize and review them, and whether you feel it or not, it strengthens your faith.

51. That’s also why I’ve given such specific promises on such a wide variety of topics—I want each of My brides to have exactly what they need. When you’re going through a jealousy battle or some emotional trauma, for example, the key promises on faith, rising above‚ and emotional stability will be a very great comfort to you. They’re promises from Me to you that you can claim and appropriate and that put into words exactly what you need and want to see happen. They’re like a written prayer that you can pray and claim no matter how you feel. You can stand on them as My Word.

52. Or say there’s a parent who has children out of the Family. You can bet that the promises I’ve given along those lines are exactly what they need. You might not need them, but they do—desperately! Those specific promises on that topic bring comfort, grace‚ strength, and faith for the battle. And they also work! They are effective in prayer!

53. I’ve given lots of variety because I don’t want My brides to get bored. It was out of love for you that I gave so much variety, and many people appreciate it. If you would rather stick with a few general promises that work for you, that’s totally fine with Me. Whatever works, as long as you’re praying, standing on My Word, and claiming the power that I’ve given you through the keys, that’s what you need.

54. But you might be surprised. The day might come when you will wish you had more promises memorized—just as the day will come when you’ll wish you had more Bible verses and chapters, MO quotes and more stored in your heart. The more of My Word and promises you have stored in your heart, the more spiritual ballast you have to rely on in times of difficulty. It’s a spiritual principle. Memorizing, reviewing, and quoting My Word helps it to become a part of you and stick with you.

55. But don’t get caught up in worrying about always using the right promise‚ or having them all memorized and categorized perfectly. Just hide My Word in your heart faithfully in the way that works best for you—key promises, Bible verses, quotes and stories, it’s all needed, and you’ll be glad you did when that’s all you have left. I’m able to bring back what you’ve stored there. So if you want to be spiritually rich in the days to come‚ stock up now! By the same token, I’ll be able to use the key promises you’ve memorized to not only help you, but give comfort and faith and a foundation to others‚ if you’re able to memorize a variety. If not, I’ll use what you have and I’ll make the most of it.

56. So don’t let the Enemy condemn you or get you tripped off on these sidelines that discourage or distract you from what he fears the most—your foundation in My Word, and hiding it in your heart for both now and the days to come. That’s what his goal is. Counter it with an all-out attack of loving‚ treasuring, respecting, memorizing, quoting, and using My Word in all its forms. Make him wish he’d never attacked you in the first place! (End of message from Jesus.)

Why do the keys often not seem to work “as advertised”?

57. (Question:) I think the thing I’ve struggled with at times is the matter of the results not quite living up to the promises. The key promises promise so much, and we’ve all been wielding them for well over a year now (admittedly not always proficiently), but I wouldn’t say a lot of situations have improved as greatly as the promises have advertised. In some things, like the housing we were praying for‚ it even seemed to be quite a letdown, in fact.

58. The question would be as to whether we’re still in a stage where we’re taking it mostly by faith while we learn, or if it’s really supposed to be happening as advertised and it’s our error in not having enough faith, or clean enough hearts, or not enough knowledge, that things aren’t happening. I know miracles happen, but honestly‚ not quite like the promises say they will, or not as quickly and instantaneously as they promise.

59. A related question: I do wonder at times just how effective the keys really are. It says they blast the Enemy to bits, but then it seems like some of our prime targets such as Apotheon, Pan, etc.‚ seem to be alive and well and continuing to come around. I’m grateful that I can have the keys to attack these guys, but it seems that they could be more effective.

60. (Jesus: ) The keys do work, and when wielded correctly, they do accomplish My will. More study needs to be done on the part of My brides so that they understand clearly how and when My keys work, for they only work in conjunction with My will and in My time.

61. For example, the housing situation you were praying for is a huge subject with many aspects, and you have claimed keys and I have won great victories for you through the keys. But it is neither My will nor My timing to just, whoosh, bring about the ultimate victory in some situations instantaneously. I have a much greater and more long-term vision than you, and in this particular situation, I knew that those involved were gaining more benefits from it taking longer than they expected, than they would have if everything had fallen into place effortlessly.

62. You see‚ I have to weigh up, and I constantly do weigh up‚ all the needs of My children. Life on Earth isn’t meant to be perfect—it’s a training time, a time of learning, growth and progress. And as you know, it’s the tests and trials and difficulties of life that propel you to growth, not the times when everything goes perfectly. So just because you have the keys, it’s unrealistic to expect that all your troubles will vanish. They’re meant to help you cope in increasingly intense battle conditions, but they won’t completely take away all your troubles. In your situation in WS, I weigh up your need for solid, undisturbed work time in order to serve the Family‚ versus the battle training you need through having challenges hurled your way day after day. And I give you a perfect balance of both.

63. This is definitely a time of training in your use of the keys, and it goes along with the Word Revolution and strengthening yourself in all the new weapons. The keys are activated and enhanced by many different factors, including your faith, which comes from your personal connection with Me and the Word, your yieldedness, your determination to persevere in prayer‚ and your skill at wielding specific keys for specific situations. Many times prayers prayed using the keys are rather haphazard, and there is much yet to learn.

64. You also have to use the keys in conjunction with prophecy, to know how to pray and what to pray, and even what you can expect the keys to do for you at any given time. If you use them in this way, you will grow in faith that I do all things well and that the keys do all things well, that the keys never fail. If you don’t see an obvious target hit after you’ve wielded the weapon of the keys‚ seek Me as to why. Maybe I had another plan‚ or maybe there’s something for you to learn regarding your use of the keys. I can give you further insight that will help you grow and progress in your skill of wielding the keys. And with time you will become very proficient. So seek Me; there are always answers.

65. Along with that, I will explain that you will not completely destroy Apotheon, Pan, Bacchus, or other spiritual principalities. I could have destroyed them long ago, but I have let them rule and reign during this age of man’s choice. Your use of the keys destroys their influence in your life, and how completely that influence is destroyed, or how easily it comes back‚ is largely up to your personal yieldedness and desperation. But you will fight these principalities until your dying day. That doesn’t mean it’s futile to fight them with the keys‚ because their influence on you can be lessened, and even—in the case of My brides who truly forsake all and are desperate enough to want My full possession—completely vanquished. It doesn’t mean they don’t still exist, but their power over you can be zero. Do you see?

66. The keys strengthen you the more you use them in conjunction with My Word and My will. They give you everything you need to become seasoned warriors in the Endtime battle. Don’t let the Enemy lessen the power of the keys in your life by telling you that they don’t work. (End of message from Jesus.)

More insight into how using prophecy with the keys works wonders

67. (Jesus:) I’ve explained this principle to you before. Because the keys only perform My highest will, it’s important to find out My highest will when you claim them‚ if you want to be truly effective. One way to do that is by asking Me to show you what you should be praying for. Sometimes I’ll tell you, and at other times I’ll just tell you to pray for My highest will, whatever that might be. Sometimes I’ll tell you to pray in a certain direction—for example‚ for supply or safety, however I choose to bring the miracle. In other cases I might ask you to pray for something that you would have never thought of, had you not stopped and asked Me. I won’t always tell you the end result, and sometimes things change along the way according to many factors and the choices of those involved. But in any case, your prayers will be the most effective possible, because you’ll be praying in the direction of My will. (End of message from Jesus)

What are the conditions necessary in order to claim victory?

68. (Question:) There’s a key promise that says, “There is no stopping those who use the keys in conjunction with My will, in desperation of heart and humility of mind and spirit. When the conditions are right‚ the keys will always bring you victory.” The question I have is, what do the conditions refer to? It could be two things: If you fulfill the conditions for using the keys—like the desperation, humility, and yieldedness—the keys will always bring you victory. The other thing it could mean is when the conditions are right, like the balls on the billiard table, when He knows everything is right and in line for the miracle to be performed. Or He might be talking about both—we have to fulfill the spiritual conditions, and the other factors also have to be lined up right.

69. (Dad:) You don’t know everything and aren’t generally in a position to know what’s best. Even if you think you know what’s best‚ you still have to let God make the ultimate decision. That’s one of the first conditions to getting answers to prayer, even when you claim the keys. The keys won’t use their power to give you something just because you ask for it, unless it’s in accordance with the Lord’s will at the time. Remember that essential phrase‚ “In conjunction with My will.” The keys will only work for those who are asking in accordance with His will. In other words, they won’t work for those who are using them for selfish reasons, or ungodly purposes, or even for anything that’s good and important, but simply not the Lord’s perfect will or timing for that moment.

70. So first of all, you have to be willing to yield to whatever the Lord knows is best, even if that means not getting the answer to your prayer right then, or getting a different answer than you want. The keys have power, but only to do what’s best for you and the Lord’s overall plan.

71. Once you’re in a position to accept whatever the Lord wants to do, He still might not give you exactly what you want if He knows it’s better not to give it to you quickly, because in the longer process you’d learn lessons. If He feels the spiritual lessons you’ll learn are more beneficial than giving you a quick answer or miracle or supply, He might choose to wait on giving you the thing you’re asking for.

72. So if you’re yielded and willing to accept whatever He wants to do, even if it means waiting, being patient, and continuing to trust Him while you’re learning lessons, you’re meeting the next condition. Learning lessons might be an important condition in your life, so if you meet that condition and do the learning and go through God’s school, then you’ll be in a better position to receive.

73. Other times it might not necessarily be a question of teaching you lessons or yieldedness, but simply because His will is to be fulfilled in some other way than what you’re praying for. Even if you’re generally yielded and moving forward in the spirit, you still don’t know the mind of God on every single issue, and you have to continue to trust His great wisdom.

74. There is also the factor of personal choice. The Lord has the power to work all things out for good for those who love Him‚ but sometimes that takes time‚ if some of those involved aren’t fully yielded or obedient to follow through on His plan. He likes to give people chances to be used of Him to fulfill the answer to others’ prayers, but if they aren’t willing or don’t choose to be used, then He will find another way to bring the answer, and that takes time.

75. The Lord hasn’t put a lot of conditions on the keys. He’s basically given them to you with very few limits or boundaries. At the same time, the spiritual principles that apply to answered prayer and His Word also apply to the keys. He assumes you understand that when the promise says, “Call on the keys and I will supply all your needs,” that this means within His will and what He knows is best for you and others and His work.

76. So there are conditions—the same conditions that apply to His Word. If you claim the keys of miracles and they don’t perform the miracle you asked for, or the keys of healing don’t bring you instant healing, it’s not because they’re failing, but most likely because the Lord’s will differs in some way from what you want. Even though He hasn’t put specific conditions with each key, there are spiritual requirements you must meet in order to use them and benefit from them.

77. Reread the requirements He gave the Family when He first explained the gift of the keys. (“Call on the Keys,” ML #3368:80-81, GN 962.) He talked about meeting His will, fulfilling your role as a disciple, etc. If you’re generally meeting the spiritual standard of His Word and living the life of a disciple, then you can use the keys and expect miracles—in accordance with His will. (End of message from Dad.)

Is it always going to be a “but if not” type of situation?

78. (Question:) I just finished reading some prophecies about a recent situation we went through in our Home and our housing setup. It was very inspiring—also very convicting to see that I wasn’t having “crazy faith” to just believe that You’d take care of us no matter what. I was looking at things from a System perspective, and even doubting Your ability to make everything turn out for good in the end.

79. But I still have a question concerning desperation in prayer for events that apparently You already have planned out. It just seems we were really praying our hearts out for these various aspects of the situation‚ and although the keys promised complete victory, and You even said that as we prayed‚ it would be done for us‚ some of these things didn’t turn out the way we were praying for them.

80. From these messages I just read‚ it’s obvious that this was Your plan all along and that You had a good reason. That’s fine with me, and I’m certainly going to try to work on trusting You more in the future, and I’m sorry for any of the times I’ve been lame and didn’t put my trust fully in You. But I guess despite all the Word on the topic, which I do really want to read more, it’s just hard not to be fatalistic when You seem to have everything already so well planned. Sometimes it seems You’re even planning bad stuff to happen to us, but which You will fix in the end. Very often this seems to happen, with or without our prayers.

81. Consider the conference [some of our detractors and apostates are currently holding]. We’re praying against the efforts of our detractors, that You will confound their efforts to hurt the Family, but I’m open to the possibility that You won’t do that, and then You’ll explain that it was Your will that this happened in order to fill their cup of iniquity more fully, or in order that persecution can come about, because that’s Your will for the Family. Again, I’m fine with Your plan. I don’t want to do things man’s way or my way, but I do dislike having to stir myself up to ask and ask for something when that wasn’t even Your plan at all. This doesn’t always happen, but in some cases it does.

82. What can You tell me about this? The question basically boils down to, “How can I have faith to really claim the keys and ask for a certain thing, when there’s a good possibility You already know that You’re not going to do it, or not at all in the way we’re asking? And how can I not feel like I wasted time and effort and breath to ask for these things? And how can I keep up my faith in the keys, which do promise everything but sometimes seem conditional on Your will, which You don’t always reveal? Is it always going to be a ‘but if not’ type of situation?”

83. (Jesus:) Even with something good and needed—like prayer—you can either lean to your own understanding as to what to pray for and how to pray‚ or you can first ask Me to explain how I’m looking at the situation and how I want you to pray.

84. I live in the eternal now. I can see the road at present, the road ahead‚ and the road behind. You, however, do not.

85. Your attitudes of trying to anticipate My moves are rooted in pride and are a work of Pan. It’s spiritual pride and self-righteousness to try to see what only I can see, and to try to establish a pattern to My behavior by observing My past moves. It’s like you’re trying to say that you don’t want to simply follow along on the “little dog line,” going wherever I lead, but you want to be a little more knowledgeable, a little more in the know than everyone else. You don’t want to be humbled by pouring out your heart and soul to Me in prayer, only to find that I took those prayers and used them to accomplish something other than what you thought I would do. You want to pray and see everything turn out exactly as you prayed it, but that is not the point.

86. Somewhere along the line you’ve gotten a bit off track in thinking that the keys are here to serve you and do whatever you tell them to do. While they are here to help you‚ they’re here to help you accomplish My will and My plan, not your own. It’s true that often your plans and My plans lie in the same direction, but what you must constantly remember is that My ways are not your ways‚ and will never be your ways. You’re not God, and it’s as simple as that. The sooner you can come to terms with your more humble place in the scheme of things, the happier you’ll be, and as a result, you’ll actually be more powerful because you’ll be a better channel.

87. The keys were not created simply to obey your every wish and to fulfill your will. The keys must be used in conjunction with My will, and as you do so, I will perform your requests in the way that I know best. And remember also that I see the past‚ the present, and the future‚ and My manner of answering your request is almost always going to be somewhat different than what you had in mind. Your job is only to channel that power by being humble of heart and making a vacuum that I can fill. You need to suck in the spirit and work up that desperation, and then it frees Me to do My work in My way.

88. Can a man be found righteous with God? Can you hold Me to an accounting? Must I defend My actions to you? You’re only a man‚ and not God, therefore you will not always understand everything I do and why. If you want to be powerful in the spirit and accomplish everything that I have for you‚ and if you want to see answers to your prayers, then stop trying to do My job and focus on yours. Your job is to pray; your job is to be desperate and full of faith, regardless of how I seem to answer or not answer.

89. It comes down to whether you believe I will answer prayer or not. If you believe that I can take every prayer and do something with it, then you can always pray in faith. But if you’re always worrying about whether I’m going to do something other than what you’re asking for, and if you’ll end up looking foolish or disappointed in the end, that hinders your praying a full-of–faith prayer.

90. A lot of your prayers have been hindered from having the full power they could have because you’ve been too busy trying to outguess Me. In your spiritual pride you haven’t wanted to just pour out your heart in the way I’ve asked. You’ve tried to see with your carnal mind where I might go in the spirit. You’ve tried to second-guess Me and pray prayers that could be compatible with a number of answers‚ so that you wouldn’t look like a dumb sheep, but one who is wiser and has Me pegged and My moves figured out. This is why you’re lacking in power, and this is what will always happen if you don’t live for the moment, doing just what I ask, when I ask, and not trying to figure out the future.

91. You need to focus on the now. Right now I’ve asked you to pray against the activities of your detractors at this conference, and you should do so in full faith that I will answer your prayers. Don’t try to assume what I might do or imagine how I might consider answering. Just pray. I’m the One Whose reputation is on the line. I’m the One Who has promised that I will come through. And I always will. Leave the answering to Me, and if you have prayed, then rest assured that My will will be done. But, in expecting the answer, leave yourself open to the fact that you’re a mere mortal, and while your short-sighted and maybe immature solution to the [conference] problem might be something drastic—say an asteroid from the heavens falling upon the meeting site—this will probably not be My solution to the problem! My solutions are often slower, subtler, and require more faith on your part to believe that I’m really working.

92. I’m also a God of love. As long as I can, I give second chances‚ and third and fourth and hundredth chances‚ in My mercy hoping that some will return to Me. But you have less patience than I do, and you want to see answers right away. You want to see all your enemies judged. When you pray for someone who is sick, you want them to immediately jump up from their bed whole. You don’t allow room for personal choice in your solutions. You don’t realize that even those in the Family who are sick, though they’re your sweet brothers and sisters, sometimes My hand is upon them and I will withhold My healing until a certain choice of theirs is made. Sometimes I wish for them to be afflicted so that they can be made strong in other ways. Or sometimes it’s simply not My timing yet.

93. When you pray for a sick person whom it’s not My time to heal yet, your prayer isn’t wasted. Like I’ve said before, I can use that fervency to bless them in a way that I know is good for the overall solution.

94. Prayer and the working of miracles will always take faith. For you to be powerful in prayer, you’ll have to stop holding Me to your own standards of what you think should be done. Are you asking Me for My will or yours to be done? When you pray‚ state the petition you have need of, but ask Me to work in My way. You can give Me direct requests, but know that I will answer in My way, which is so far removed from your way that it’s like it says in the Bible, “as far as the heavens above the Earth.” You’ll never fully understand how I work. Sometimes I answer exactly as you wanted, and sometimes it seems nothing like what you wanted.

95. All I need from you is trust. Give Me a little more slack, a little more room to work in the way I see fit, without your starting to murmur and complain and doubt and say that I’m not coming through, and that you’re always having to make excuses for My failures.

96. Let go of that pride that needs to see results and vindication. Who are you trying to justify this for, anyway? Why do you feel humiliated when your prayers aren’t answered exactly as you had hoped? Are you weak in faith? Do you want to see big showy miracles so that you can have something tangible to stand on to justify your faith in Me to those who mock?

97. You’ve thrown yourself fully into the business of wanting to see miracles, signs‚ something tangible, so that you can feel like, “Okay, there. There’s a real miracle. I prayed for such-and–such and it happened‚ so there!” Even that is pride, and a lack of faith.

98. I ask you to walk by faith, not by sight. And the kind of faith that will overcome the world and all of your detractors and enemies is the kind of faith that says, “But if not.” You need the kind of faith that doesn’t need a sign in order to feel vindicated, but that you’ll believe in Me and My work even if nothing visibly changes. That’s the kind of faith I will bless with real action!

99. Your faith hasn’t been pure. You’ve been kind of putting Me to the test in a disbelieving manner. I like to be put to the test in faith‚ as in times when you’re excited to see what I’m going to do. But you haven’t been testing Me in a good way. You’ve really been assuming that I won’t answer, and you’ve been challenging Me to. I cannot bless that. I bless the kind of faith that challenges Me to work in whatever way I see fit, and that is excited and thrilled with anticipation of what I’m going to do, even if it’s totally different than what you were expecting.

100. You’ve allowed Pan entrance in this way by trying to prove Me‚ trying to prove the power of the keys. You’ve let Pan blind you to the things I have done, and you’ve only allowed yourself to believe whatever I’ve done that coincided exactly with what you had in mind. That mindset and way of thinking is hindering you, blocking your mind from accepting that I work in mysterious ways, and that My ways are beyond finding out for mere mortals. You’ve allowed Pan to close your mind to My miracles that don’t fit in the tight little box of “your will.”

101. You need to let go of that attitude. You need to rebuke Pan, and that box that says I must work in a certain way or else I have failed. You haven’t put it in words so black and white, but your questions and your doubts essentially tell Me that I must perform your will or be called a liar. That is a work of Satan, the hinderer, who wishes to use pride and lack of faith to destroy your usefulness as a prayer warrior. You must shake off those shackles and begin to pray with a purer heart and a more open mind, understanding that I know best, and that you can request but the answering is My business. You should praise Me regardless of what you see or don’t see. Without that kind of faith, it will be impossible to please Me.

102. That doesn’t mean that you should never ask for specific things. You can ask that I hinder this conference, and you can ask that I change or stop certain individuals. You can even ask Me to do specific things in regards to the situation. But you must know that even if that doesn’t happen—as it may well not, since My will and My planned judgment or solution might be different than what you’re asking—I heard your prayer and I used it for something positive. It’s those who are willing to go by faith who will be rewarded, not those who are so finicky about their prayers being answered exactly when and how they intended.

103. So when I say to pray, pray. And when I say to praise, praise. Be humble. Just be a follower on the “little dog line,” following your Shepherd. Don’t try to guess or wonder or worry. Just relax. Just channel. Just pray. And just believe. Work on strengthening your faith. You can do this through the Word‚ and also through praying prayers that leave Me room to work, and praise Me even when you don’t see the answer or the answer doesn’t come to pass as you’d hoped.

104. Praising Me for whatever I choose to do or not do—that is pleasing in My sight, and that strengthens your belief in Me. Even if at first it feels forced, soon you will believe‚ and your praises will be genuine, and your faith will be rewarded. (End of message from Jesus.)

Do you know…

What the ultimate purpose of the keys is, why they were given to us?—To win souls, to reap the final harvest.

(Published at Feast 2001:)

105. (Jesus:) Believe and receive, for I now put the keys to the Kingdom in your hands. All power of Heaven is at your command to fully access as you will. Use it wisely, My loves. Use it in love, use it with discretion, use it with great honor, use it to right all wrongs, to expose evil, to set at liberty those who are bound.

106. With this all-powerful possession you must never forget the purpose of it all. … I don’t give you such great possession of My power for your benefit alone.

107. … I give you such great power on Earth at this time to serve a far greater end. It’s not for you to wield My power for your own enjoyment and thrills. I ask you to shun being as those in the churches, who discover a measure of My power, yet are as young and unwise children playing with a high-powered machine as if it were a toy. Be not as those who dabble with a measure of My power, using it to their own end, forgetting the reason for it all.

108. You must remember, My loves, the aim, the purpose‚ the goal, the final end result of why I put such power in your hands—which is to win souls to My Kingdom! This is the reason for it all. This is the reason for such great possession of My Spirit within you. This is the reason I give you full access to all of Heaven’s power.

109. The outpouring, the power, these blessings I give you, My loves‚ are all to this end—that you might reap the harvest that awaits you. This is where your eyes must always be focused. This is the goal. This is your purpose in the era of action. This is the reason for it all‚ the purpose behind everything you do, the reason I place these keys in your hands, the reason I come to you now‚ to possess you in such a great way. The reason for it all is to win souls, to reap the final harvest in the end of days. Time is short, dear loves, so very short, and the night is fast falling—this is why I pour out My Spirit as never before.

110. I ask you now to join arm in arm with one another. As we join as one, let this fire burn deep within your bosom as you receive these blessings and mighty outpouring of My Spirit. As you access these keys to the Kingdom of Heaven in the days to come, never forget the purpose of it all—to reap the final harvest, to win‚ to gather the lost, to get the job done.

111. I will not be totally satisfied until every one is Home again, and believe Me, neither will you. And when you come Home to Heaven, your satisfaction will be in knowing that you fulfilled your destiny. You didn’t quit. You didn’t give up. You did your part. You fought until the End and you brought others in. Let this passion light your fire! As you go forward into this era of action, as you access My power in fuller capacity, enabling you to perform greater miracles‚ as you work greater works, always remember the purpose and reason for it all. (ML #3318:203-204, 206-207, 209-211‚ GN 922).

Are we automatically protected from everything when we call on the keys?

112. (Question: ) Recently a couple of our WS Homes suffered minor car accidents. One of the drivers received from the Lord that they would have been better protected if he had called on the keys specifically. But in the other case, the driver and passenger had specifically prayed and called on the keys when they went out.

113. Several people have had questions about this and other similar scenarios: Every time you call on the keys, are you just automatically going to get protected from everything? I don’t think we can expect to be kept completely free of anything that might harm or hinder us in any way. The Lord has to let the Enemy attack us in some ways. To call on the keys not to get headaches, not to be discouraged, not to suffer any afflictions or setbacks or difficulties of any kind would be just like being in Heaven.

114. How much can the keys protect us, and to what point? How much protection can we expect by calling on the keys?

(Note: The following answer was published in the “Introduction to the Keys Promises,” GN 1011, and is being included with the other key questions and answers for easier review and reference.)

115. (Jesus: ) The power of the keys is a spiritual phenomenon, a mystery, a reality. The keys are a part of Me; their power and My power are the same‚ just like the Word is a part of Me and prayer is a part of My Spirit. All the spiritual weapons are in some way a part of Me, an extension of My Spirit‚ something I give you to help you fight the spiritual warfare and stay connected to Me.

116. I’ve told you that every prayer is heard and answered. This is true. Even though you don’t always see the results of every answer right away, they are answered in My way and in My time. When you pray in My Name and claim My promises, you have My power at your disposal to work for you, to do miracles, open doors, whatever you’re praying for. Even though you might not always see the immediate fruit of claiming My Word‚ it stands firm and is true.

117. It’s the same when you pray in the power of the keys and claim the key promises. They work for you in the spirit and answer your prayers. You don’t always see the physical manifestation of the power of the keys on the spot, but their power is at work just the same. Sometimes I allow “bad” things to happen in spite of the fact that you prayed and claimed My promises, or prayed in the Name of Jesus, or claimed the power of the keys. It might seem like prayer or the keys don’t really work and don’t make a difference, especially in cases when you pray for protection or healing or something you feel you really need, and you don’t seem to receive it.

118. The results are up to Me and My will at the time—how I know it is best to answer your prayer. Sometimes I allow negative circumstances to happen in order to accomplish My higher will. For example, I might allow you to have an accident‚ even though you claimed My protection and claimed the keys. That doesn’t mean that prayer and the keys don’t work; it just means I have a higher purpose for allowing those circumstances. Ask Me about it and I’ll tell you why.

119. Ask Me to explain the reasons why I allow something “bad” to happen in your life. If you pray specifically for a good night’s sleep and claim the keys—and then you don’t sleep well—that doesn’t automatically mean the keys aren’t working for you. Ask Me about it, ask Me why I allowed that situation to happen, and I’ll explain it to you. Maybe I want to speak to your heart in the quiet of the night, or guide your thoughts, or convict your heart about something. Sometimes I want you to pray about something. I’ll show you the reason for everything I allow if you ask Me.

120. I choose not to guard you from every single thing in life‚ because if I did, then you wouldn’t learn and grow in the spirit, and you wouldn’t learn how to fight in the spirit and use your spiritual weapons. I have to allow some “bad” things to happen so that your faith will grow and your use of your spiritual weapons will be sharpened more quickly.

121. You are surrounded by the protection of the keys when you specifically claim them to protect you, but if something happens to you anyway, it just means that it could have been much worse if you hadn’t prayed and specifically claimed the keys. Every promise of the power of the keys is fulfilled in some way when you claim them, but exactly how I choose to fulfill those promises is according to My wisdom and what I know is best at the time.

122. It might seem odd to you that I don’t choose to protect you from every possible hurt or negative experience, especially when My promises indicate that I will, but remember that it’s often the deep, dark experiences of life that teach you the most valuable lessons. If I were to protect and keep you from every negative thing, then you would be in Heaven and not on Earth.

123. The power of the keys is a spiritual weapon that I have made available to My children who live in the physical world. Without their power a lot more “bad” things would happen, but because you pray and specifically claim their power, you have much greater protection and help from the spirit. When you pray, claim their full protection or their full anointing, full wisdom, whatever you need their help with, and then leave the final decision up to Me as to how to fulfill My promises. Don’t limit your faith and don’t belittle the power of the keys because of doubt or a lack of faith, but trust in My promises completely, even if you don’t see the answers as you’d like them. (End of message from Jesus.) (ML #3428:41-49, GN 1011).

Is there something we’re missing or that we need to do in order to make the keys really “work” for us?

124. (Question: ) It seems to me that people with less understanding of the Lord or the workings of the spirit world seem to be able to use the keys more effectively. Very cool testimonies have come from new disciples, Active members, sheep, and even some outsiders who have heard about the keys and tried to use them. And it’s worked for them. But we use them a lot and often there aren’t visible results. We know there are other times when it’s a “miracle of the keys,” but I just wonder if our familiarity with the Lord or lack of faith in some way is hindering the Lord from being able to really perform the supernatural key miracles that He’s promised.

125. We see lots of little answers to prayer, but the GNs promise really big, fantastical ones, and I haven’t seen many of those happen yet. I’ve heard lots of cool keys testimonies from people who are really babes in the Lord and the Family, but maybe it’s just that they believe more and the Lord can’t afford to disappoint them, whereas we already make excuses for the Lord or perhaps expect that something won’t happen, or that the miracle “might” not happen. I’d be very interested to know how we can strengthen our faith so that the keys can really work for us.

126. (Dad:) The Lord is giving the Family wonderful promises of protection, supply, everything you need, without limits. He’s giving you hundreds of key promises on every subject and for every need. He’s telling you that you can have healing‚ the power to rise above, supply of every need—all by simply asking for it and claiming the keys. Just think about that for a minute. It’s a very big promise, right?

127. Think about what you need in your life right now, whether spiritual or physical. What’s stopping you from getting it? What’s stopping you from having the financial blessing you need, the material things you need, the victories in your personal life and walk with the Lord? What’s stopping you from reaching out your hand and accepting the blessing‚ the promise? It’s probably partly a lack of faith‚ and partly a lack of experience to trust and believe this new gift will really work for you, and partly the Lord’s divine wisdom.

128. When the Lord gave the Family the gift of prophecy, there were some testing times. Some people said‚ “I can’t hear from the Lord. No way!” Some people thought only their top leaders and shepherds were spiritual enough and good enough to hear from the Lord. “Receive a direct specific prophecy myself?!” But you eventually went through the growing pains and you stretched your faith far enough to receive the New Wine of direct prophecy. Now almost everyone hears from the Lord personally, by themselves, directly from Heaven.

129. At one time you thought prophecy was such an amazing and miraculous gift that you’d never be capable of it personally. But because you kept trusting and believing and working on it, your channel became more and more practiced. Today almost everyone can receive the Lord’s counsel about any question they have—good‚ wise counsel that they depend on.

130. Think back to when you were a babe in the Lord, just learning to have faith. You read the Bible and memorized verses, and some of them seemed pretty outstanding. “If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.” “Anything? Wow!” But did you ever claim that verse and it didn’t come to pass? And what about all these new keys with their wonderful promises of blessing and help? What if they don’t work sometimes?

131. Yes, you can and should claim the keys, as well as the printed Word in the Bible, as well as His promises in the GNs. Of course they will work—eventually, in the way He knows is best, and according to your faith. The Lord gives you hundreds of promises because He knows you need that many in order to cover all your needs for all time. He knows He needs to give it all to you because sometimes you’ll have more faith for one than another, or you’ll understand one better than another.

132. The keys and all that they promise are like other spiritual gifts and weapons—you grow into faith in their use; you learn and understand and grow as you use them and as time goes on. The Lord’s told you how He’s preparing you for the Endtime and the miracles and wonders He will do through you. Just because you don’t see all of those miracles and wonders today doesn’t mean they’re not true. They are true and they will happen just as He says—in His time, when the time is right and you’re ready and the world is ready for it to come to pass.

133. If some of you wonder why you don’t see the marvelous answers to the key promises you claim today, just wait. Hold on, keep using them, keep building your faith by learning them and memorizing them, and when the time is right for you, you’ll see the miracles and answers.

134. It’s the same with any promise He’s ever made, whether in the Bible or the GNs, or through the keys—they’re true and will happen just as He said. Sometimes He lets people see signs and miracles right now because they need that to encourage their faith. Sometimes He lets it happen to encourage others’ faith, as a witness. And sometimes He wants you to just believe by faith even though you don’t see any signs or wonders.

135. You can pray for healing and not be healed right now the way you’d like; whereas someone else prays for healing and they are healed. What’s the difference, and why does it work for some people and not for others, or work for you sometimes but not at other times? How come a babe in Christ who doesn’t know half as many scriptures as you do can claim a miracle and get it, and here you are, older in the Lord and wiser, and yet maybe you weren’t able to do what he did?

136. There are many, many reasons, way too many to address here, why the Lord doesn’t always answer in the way you think or even wish He would. But you just have to accept that He knows best. After all, He is God! But in this particular situation—asking why the Lord sometimes lets wonderful miracles be performed for total babes in Him, and then you who have been serving Him all these years don’t get what you were hoping for—well, maybe the Lord knows you don’t need it as much! He knows you’re going to stick and still have faith whether He answers the way you’d like or not. He knows you’re not going to backslide or throw in the towel just because you didn’t get what you asked for. You’re strong in Him, you’re grounded in the faith, you’re a solid believer by faith—and that’s an even greater witness and testimony.

137. Those who have great faith to trust and believe even if they don’t see the answers right away are the same ones who will have faith to expect miracles when the time comes. So don’t give up just because all your prayers aren’t answered today, or just because the promises you claim don’t come to pass exactly the way you expect. A lot of them will be answered, and those that aren’t are working together for your good to prepare you for the Endtime when He needs you to have great faith.

138. Keep exercising your faith in His Word by claiming it, using it, and memorizing it. If things don’t work out the way you expected‚ ask Him about it! Ask Him what better purpose He had, why He chose to work the way He did, and He’ll tell you. That’s also building your faith in His Word. It’s better to find out than to let questions and doubts build up in your life. If you doubt and question the Word or His promises, then when the time comes to be strong and use them, you won’t have the faith or power you need. If you ask Him to explain things to you now, then in the future when you really need to depend on His Word or claim a miracle, you’ll have the faith and power to do it.

139. It might look like He’s not living up to His part of the bargain in not fulfilling His promises all the time, but even that is part of strengthening your faith for the bigger battles ahead. You can’t receive the blessing if you don’t trust and believe and claim His promises in real faith. If you just assume they don’t work‚ so why bother, then they certainly won’t work for you.

140. When He knows the time and circumstances are right for you, then you will receive the blessing if you trust and have faith. It will pay off eventually and His promises will come to pass and be fulfilled if you continue to have faith and trust. (End of message from Dad.)

*

141. (Jesus:) The keys are helping you to fight today’s battles, which would be much harder if you didn’t have the power of the keys. But the main purpose of the keys today, more than outstanding or miraculous and spectacular demonstrations of power, is instructing you in their use, giving you experience, and helping you to raise the level of your discipleship, which is necessary for you to harness their full power. That’s their greatest accomplishment in these days.

142. The keys are working in many ways that you might not have noticed yet, because some are less obvious than others. For example, the keys are working in people’s personal lives. The battles of the spirit have intensified greatly, and the physical manifestation of those battles is soon to follow. Whereas people should be struggling more than they ever have been, some have learned and are learning to use the keys, and they’re overcoming things that have been holding them back or bothering them for years. How is that possible? Because the keys are working!

143. Yes, there are some physical manifestations of the power of the keys, but those are more easily noticeable. But if you were to look for the more hidden miracles, you would see many more and would realize how much the keys are already helping you. And in recognizing and studying these miracles, you would learn much more about the keys‚ when they work, how to make them work for you, what conditions are necessary, etc.

144. So realize the twofold purpose of the keys in these days‚ and study, learn, and use them! (End of message from Jesus.)

Text box.

145. (Jesus:) Don’t become complacent, knowing you possess the keys to unlock any door. For though they will unlock any door for you, you must learn the skill of turning the keys in the locks. You must learn which key opens which door. I will not hold back the approaching night of gross darkness much longer, so it is high time to realize and then release the power that I have placed within your hands and to practice with the keys. For in the darkness you will need to be masters of the keys. (ML #3349‚ GN 942).

Encouragement to keep trusting, learning, and expanding!

146. (Mama: ) To close this GN, here’s some encouragement from our Husband that one of the teamworkers of one of our WS Homes received for someone who was battling with trying to absorb and put into perspective all the new moves of the spirit, along with all that we’ve learned from Dad and that the Lord has poured out over the years. It can seem kind of overwhelming sometimes—all the instruction about the keys and the key promises, our spirit helpers‚ the spiritual entities who fight us that we’re supposed to be praying against and aware of, plus all the older weapons of praise, loving the Lord intimately, prophecy, etc.

147. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all this new information, I think the Lord’s answer will be comforting and encouraging for you‚ and help to put things in perspective. He gave it not only to the person, but He also speaks directly to all of us. I love you!

148. (Jesus:) My dear one, thanks for loving Me and giving yourself to Me completely. That’s really the name of the game, and all I’m really after. I’m so proud of you and of all My dear brides of the children of David. As you give yourselves more and more to Me, it allows Me and moves Me to fill you more and more and give you more of the tools and gifts, more of the insight into the spirit world that will empower you and help you to be able to overcome and win in each and every situation.

149. It would be great, of course‚ if you were so spiritual, such mighty warriors‚ that you were like one of those Hollywood, computer-fabricated action stars, like the guy in The Matrix or one of these other fanciful productions. And in the spirit, your prayers—when you’re really, truly desperate and wholehearted—are that powerful, and do those kinds of mighty feats.

150. But prayer, calling on the keys, and using the new weapons are all spiritual. It’s invisible power, silent force, and the results are often the same. The miracles and answers happen in the spirit first, behind the scenes. A lot of it is something you might not even know about‚ or find out what happened, because it changed something in the spirit, or moved something in the spirit.

151. Of course it ultimately affects the physical, too, and there will be real, solid, tangible, physical answers to every sincere and wholehearted prayer, and every time you obey Me and use the new weapons or call on the keys. But the real action happens in the spirit world. I get to see it, and so do My heavenly helpers. But for you, My dear loves, it’s nearly all by faith. That’s why your love and faith mean so much to Me, and why I’ve promised to reward you mightily for the stands of faith that you take.

152. It’s truly wonderful in My book—the fact that you receive Me, accept My Words, believe them, and act on them‚ all by faith, many times without even being able to see the results. That’s real love. That’s real faith. It makes Me so proud of you, and makes Me want to bless and reward you all the more!—And I do!

153. I have blessed the Family with exceptional faith. In fact, the Family as a whole has so much faith and insight into the spirit world that they’ve even become familiar with it. They take it for granted‚ even get tired and are bored with it all sometimes. And sometimes they’re tempted to just want to forget about it all. It seems like so much to do, so much to remember, so much to stay on top of.

154. Well, dear ones‚ I’m not asking you to stay on top of anything—I’m just asking for your hearts. Yes‚ I’m constantly pouring out new truths and revelations to you. And I’m glad that your queen keeps on rolling the gold, sharing the know, and passing on My Words to the Family. That’s what I’ve called and ordained her to do‚ and she’s been faithful to do that year in and year out.

155. Even things that she herself doesn’t fully understand, she takes by faith and passes them on, trusting that I know what I’m doing and that I’m leading the Family exactly where it needs to go. Yes, a lot of it is a mystery, and a lot of it might not be needed in every situation. But there’s a reason for it all. You need to be aware of and know about it all, because at some point in time that bit of info will be needed.

156. So keep praying, looking to Me, and fighting in the spirit. At every turn, in every situation, the wealth that you’ve been given over the years will come in very handy for you in one way or another, whether it’s the knowledge of the keys, the names of which demons are hindering and fighting you in the spirit, the intimacy of knowing that I love you like a husband loves his bride, or his child, or his best friend. It’s all important, and it’s all needed for different situations and circumstances.

157. I want you to be gifted and knowledgeable about all of these things. Every part of it that I’ve revealed at one time or another to you is important, and I will expect you to be able to draw on it and use it—whether it’s the intimacy of the bed; the authority given to you to rebuke demons by their name; the power and riches of the vaults of Heaven that are instantly opened to you by the keys I’ve given you; the spiritual edification that comes from giving Me your all when you worship Me in spirit and in truth, by giving Me your mind‚ your thoughts, your heart, your tongue, your body, and surrendering them completely to Me. All of these are important.

158. These weren’t just fads or phases that I brought the Family through and expected them to just “fade away” in time. They’re part of what makes you‚ the Family, so unique, so special, such well-rounded Christians and missionaries.

159. Of course, you’ve still got a lot to learn, a lot of growing and maturing to do, and you’ve still got a lot of pride and spiritual problems to forsake and overcome. So I’ll still keep pouring out to you and giving you answers—new truths, revelations, new concepts and ideas—and things that will help you in one way or another. It’s all needed and it’s all part of My spiritual world. But I understand that you, being carnal‚ mere mortals, have limited capacity to receive and hold and use what I have revealed to you at any given time. I know what it’s like to be hindered and held back by the flesh and the carnal mind and reasoning.

160. I’ve given you a powerful brain and spirit, but right now only a tiny portion of both are completely open and usable. Once you become a spirit being, much more of your spirit and your mental capacity will be open to these things, and it won’t be such a big deal—all these demons and goddesses and spirit helpers and angels and keys and powers and gifts and spiritual concepts. It’ll all just be a walk in the park. You won’t be overwhelmed by it all then, or stumbled by it, nor will you be wondering if it’s all real or needed or important. You’ll understand it all so much better then. (See ML #2955:1-29‚ Lifelines 21.)

161. Like Paul told the Corinthians, “As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1Cor.15:49-53).

162. And as John wrote‚ “Beloved, now are we the sons of God‚ and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that‚ when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is” (1John 3:2).

163. Once you come to be with Me, it will all be more clear. Once you leave the corruptible flesh and take on your immortal spirit bodies, the significance of all these things will be much easier to grasp. And then you’ll have the spiritual power to be able to use it all, handle it all, and remember it all‚ and it won’t seem so overwhelming or such a big deal to you.

164. In the meantime, I will use whatever you absorb and put to use in your life. Don’t just leave it on the shelf, waiting for the time when you can see everything clearly. But take each new truth and revelation—and the old ones as well—and hide it in your heart and work to make it a part of your life, and you’ll see Me use it at the most unexpected times. It’s all necessary. It all fits together, even if you can’t comprehend it all right now.

165. So, thanks‚ dear loves, for trusting Me on these things. Thanks for accepting and for being willing to keep receiving My answers, even when they start opening up another whole new facet or stage of your growth‚ and you’re tempted to feel like putting a cork in it.

166. Don’t be afraid of the new and unexpected or incomprehensible. The spirit world is vast, and there are so many things that I have yet to tell you. I don’t expect you to be able to handle it all or remember every little detail. I know your limitations. But I do want you to receive it and believe it and do your very best to put it into practice whenever you can. (End of message from Jesus.)

Did you know…

There’s more to come!

167. (Jesus:) These keys to the Kingdom are not the last gift that I will give you, My children of David. Those who hold on and go on for Me will receive more spiritual gifts from My hand. The time is not yet right for Me to reveal them to you now, because I must take you one step at a time. But know that your faithfulness to hone this new gift of faith that I have given you, to use these keys to the Kingdom, will pave the way for the next great gift that I will give you, My darling brides. (ML #3351:53, GN 946).

Mysterious Keys, The–Part 3

Karen Zerby

Table of Contents

GN 1181 FD/MM/FM

By Maria 3599 10/03

Dearest Family,

1. I put these two GNs together for you in October of 2003‚ at the same time as I worked on the material you received for Feast 2004. (See “The Mysterious Keys,” Parts 1 and 2, ML #3472-3473.) They were originally going to be part of the Feast material for that year, but we realized it would be too much reading and too much information, so the Lord showed us to hold them. Due to the restructuring following soon thereafter‚ and much needed work, I only recently got back to these and pulled them out and prayed about publishing them for you.

2. I didn’t rework these GNs or add to them, so not everything is up to date in mentioning what the Family has been through recently, and I’m sure that the Lord would have a lot more to give us about the keys today if we asked Him—and I hope to focus on that soon, when I cover the keys in the “Art of War” series.

3. But for now, here’s more encouragement and counsel from the Lord about the keys‚ given in answer to questions that some of you sent in. I pray that it’s a blessing to you, and helps you to use the keys more.

4. Remember what the Lord told us in the first two parts of this series—that the keys are a mystery, a phenomenon of the spiritual realm, and we probably won’t ever be able to understand them perfectly while we’re on this Earth. But we can learn to use them, we can harness their power, and through it have what we need for the days ahead, and even the miracles the Lord wants to give us today.

I love you!
Mama

Why do we have to say the words to activate the keys?

5. (Jesus: ) Even the words of man are real things. They bless or they curse‚ they lift up or they tear down, they set the world on fire or they bring peace. By your words you bless God or you curse men. By your words you are justified, and likewise by your words you are condemned (Mat.12:37).

6. I have instructed you to call on the keys, to say the words, for it is in this declaration of your faith in the keys that their power is released. You declare your faith by saying the words, by calling.

7. Saying the words is not entirely new, for I have said, “Ask and you will receive” (Mat.7:7-8). So it is with the keys. The act of asking, the act of calling on the keys, of saying the words, unlocks the power for you to receive. You call, you say the words, you declare your faith in the keys, and once you do this, their power is released. Just like when you pray: You call, I answer. Just like when someone receives Me into their heart: They have to ask, to call, to invite Me in, and I enter.

8. It’s similar to how your words of praise bring down My blessings upon you, because there is power in praise. So there is also power in your declaration of belief and faith in the keys. When you say words of praise to Me, you bring on My blessings. When you say the words, “I call on the keys,” the power is released.

9. The action of calling on the keys is like turning the key. When you call on the keys, you turn the key, you bind (lock up) or you release (open). You bind the power of Satan and put a stop to his evil deeds and attacks, or you release My miracle-working power to bring supply, good health, well–being‚ blessings, etc.

10. I’m pleased in your declaration of faith as you call on the keys, but you don’t just declare your faith to Me. As you demonstrate your faith and I honor it, it’s not for My sake alone, or even for yours. It’s for the sake of the universe. It’s for the sake of the witness. This is the day of decision, the day of choices, the day of taking a stand for Me or against Me. Calling on the keys is a witness to others, both of the physical realm and the spiritual. Even the devils hear you. You’re making your declaration of faith and you’re declaring to whom you belong. Many evil spirits circle the globe in search of their prey, and when they hear your declaration of faith, it repels them. The good spirits also hear, and are able to more greatly aid and assist you.

11. Ask and you will receive; call on the keys and the power will be released. And when you do this‚ you’re making your declaration known. You’re choosing Me and My power over all other options. You’re declaring your faith, and this faith brings results. (End of message.)

(Ellya:) I long to tell you how to call on the keys. First, you must understand that the keys of the Kingdom are real. They exist. They are not a mere symbol, nor some sort of ornamental representation. They are a real and living, vibrant entity. The keys are alive, and they represent our Savior’s Spirit and all the power of Heaven, which can never be conquered. When you call on the keys, remember that you are calling on a living, moving, powerful, spiritual phenomenon. The keys of the Kingdom have been granted power by God, and they release power in return. When you call on the keys, they will unleash power on your behalf. (ML #3368:35, GN 962)

How can we know if we’re using the keys enough in our lives?

12. (Jesus:) Wherefore by the fruits you will know if you are using the keys to the Kingdom enough. I will manifest My power to you as you call for the power of the keys. Much like you learned to get into the habit of praising Me throughout the day, you will need to discipline your spirit to remember to use this gift I have given you.

13. As much as you see the fruits of the keys in your lives, you will know if you are using them enough. Is your spirit dry, thirsty, not bearing fruit, even dying in some areas? Then you’re not using the power of the keys enough, and it is time to allow Me to manifest their power to you. Of course, it’s your faith that activates the keys to work, so according to your faith it will be done unto you.

14. Do you want to improve in some area of your life or strengthen a weak area? Call on the power of the keys and let them come alive for you! Believe and you will receive. If you’re not moving forward, progressing, learning‚ and growing in the spirit, then you’re not using the keys enough in your life. The keys are real and will bring about real‚ tangible change if they are used. So if you don’t see change, either there is a lack of faith, or a lack of use‚ or a lack of fulfilling one of the conditions for their use, any of which can be remedied if you will simply believe and receive My Words. Your eyes will be opened more to My Spirit and your faith will be increased so that you will take action, and that action will effect change, and be a manifestation of the power of the keys of the Kingdom!

15. Practice makes perfect, and the more you practice, the better and more proficient you will become at using the keys of the Kingdom. I will raise up situations that will force My children to call on the power of the keys, so that their attention is drawn to the importance of what they need to learn—the use of these keys. The more they call on the power of the keys on their own, the more I will manifest that power.

16. When I allow situations to arise that will force My children to call on the keys, it is because I love them and want them to embrace and use this gift, and see how wonderful‚ awesome and powerful it is!—That they may behold My power, and their confidence may be increased that I am with them! I must allow opportunities for their faith to be strengthened, for their faith is what will overcome the world! (End of message.)

What exactly does it mean to “use the keys”?

17. (Question:) It’s obvious we’re supposed to practice using the keys, and as we do‚ we’ll depend on them more. Once we realize their power, we’ll want to use them all the time. But how do we practice? What are we supposed to do? What exactly does the Lord mean by “use the keys”? What more is there to it than “calling on the power of the keys” and claiming their power in prayer? Here is a quote from “More on the Keys—Part 2”:

I want your mind, your spirit, and your heart to become accustomed to the sensation of the power that I have freshly given unto you. For when you are accustomed, you will use these keys more. To become accustomed‚ you must practice. Once you realize the full value of these keys, you will want to use them again and again, in every aspect of your lives.

When you use these keys in faith, you will rise above any conflict within you when I show you new truths. For when you have activated the power of these keys, the Enemy can’t come close to you, and My light will be so clear to you. He can’t touch you. He is sorely afraid of the power of these keys, for they will be the cause of his end, and he knows this. For every weapon to defeat both him and his power is within your hands when these keys are put to use. And now that you possess these keys, I can speed along My return, and he will lose his power and be cast into the bottomless pit.

As you begin to access the storerooms of Heaven, authentication of the power of My Words will be manifested more in your heart and in your lives daily. These are the keys of enlightenment. Set aside anything that stirs doubt in your heart or mind concerning them, for only by faith will the full truth of the keys be validated. (ML #3351:21-23, GN 946)

18. (Jesus:) Learning to use the keys is a step-by-step process, and it’s a process that you can only understand as you take the steps. The specific steps will be somewhat different for each individual, so each person who wants to truly learn how to avail themselves of the full power of the keys should seek Me about it. Seek Me not just once, but seek Me for a plan, and then as you proceed, continue seeking Me to know what to do next.

19. Having said that, there are certain basics that apply to almost everyone. One of the first steps is awareness of the keys. You have to think about them, you have to remember they’re there and get in the habit of calling on them. When you pray‚ call on the power of the keys—and not only in general, but learn to call on the power of specific keys.

20. Learn to ask Me which key is needed, and learn to get specific with the keys. This is another aspect of getting specific in prayer. First, you have to remember to call on the keys, and second, get specific about which key you need. The more you use the keys, the more you read about them, and the more you understand them, the more accurately you will use this power.

21. You also need to study My Word about the keys. That is the only way to truly understand them and grasp their power. One reading of each GN is not enough. You must study these Words, imbibe them, ask Me your questions, and regularly review what I have said.

22. It would be helpful to memorize the key promises, and even some of what I have said concerning the keys. This will boost your faith and remind you of what the keys are for and what they can do and how to use them.

23. Another tip on “practicing”: In some cases I may show a certain person that a certain key is the main one I want to have them use for certain purposes. In other cases I may show someone that I want them to try out every key, to experience the variety. But don’t feel stuck or that you have to know so much or have so much understanding before you can start practicing. Even if you don’t know what key to call on and you just call on “the keys of the Kingdom” and claim their power in prayer, and claim a key promise, you will see results.

24. The more you think about the keys, the more you call on them, the more you use them, the clearer this spiritual power will become to you, and the more you will understand it. That’s what practice is all about.

25. A music teacher can give hours and hours of classes on music theory and explain why when you do this it sounds like that, and when it sounds like this it’s called that, and so forth‚ and students can feel like they’ve really learned a lot and absorbed a lot. However, it’s all just theory—and perfectly sound theory—at first. But not until their playing has reached the point where they can actually try these things will they grasp the full meaning. No matter how much theory you have, learning to play any instrument takes time. Even if you know what to do and how to do it, still, to do it right, to produce the sounds you want, takes time and practice. But the more you practice, the more you “get it.” The instrument almost becomes part of you and you know how to touch it, what part to touch, how much pressure to apply, what motions and rhythms to use‚ to make it do just what you want it to do.

26. So learn to “play” the keys. Learn by practicing. Learn by getting a feel for them. There’s only one way to learn, and that’s to do it, to try it, to get hands-on practice. So step out today if you haven’t already and begin practicing. As you do‚ this “how to use the keys” question won’t be so much of an issue, because they will just become a part of you and you’ll feel comfortable with them and you’ll understand them. They will speak to you. Yes, that’s right. These keys are possessed with My very Own power and spirit, and they will speak to you. They will tell you how they can be used. They will reveal their power to you.

27. The keys are living. They speak. They move. They act. They have a life of their own, yet they cannot be brought to life within this realm without you. They need your touch to activate their power. So call on them, touch them, handle them, use them, learn about them, understand them. Then avail yourself of their power. (End of message.)

*

28. (Jesus:) The start of becoming familiar with and practicing using the keys in your daily life is to claim the power of the keys in prayer; quote and stand on the key promises. That you can be doing all the time, and you should be. Whenever anything comes up, call on the power of the keys and claim a miracle. Let the keys do the work.

29. As you are beginning to use the keys, you do need to put more focus and concentration into it as you call on the keys and ask the keys to work for you. As your skill of calling on the keys becomes more honed‚ you’ll be able to more quickly and precisely call on the power of the keys, and the specific key that you need—the key of healing‚ for example. However, for now you should concentrate all your thoughts, your mind, and your energy on a mental picture of the keys, and this will help you to receive and harness the power.

30. You have to be a receptacle of the power as well as a petitioner of it. The power comes from the keys and goes into you‚ and then through you, to whatever it is that you’re praying for or claiming. The keys do the work, but they do need a vehicle to go through. So your focus and solid concentration provide a better vehicle for the power to be channeled through.

31. You have to fight to focus. You can’t let your mind wander. You have to believe that the keys have the power that you’re seeking‚ and you must manifest your faith through believing and concentrating, and not letting anything else come into your mind, no doubts, worries‚ or thoughts like, “I wonder if the keys are really going to do their work, and heal him or her?” Or, “What if they don’t work, and what if the situation doesn’t change?” You just have to determine to believe. Belief is vital to the keys working miracles for you.

32. You also have to be thankful and appreciative of the fact that you’ve been blessed with the power of the keys. You should be awed that you have such immense power at your disposal. You shouldn’t take the keys for granted or figure that you have a right to them, or deserve them. They are a special blessing, and you should thank Me and treat the keys with reverence.

33. I’m not only giving My children the gift of the keys of the Kingdom‚ but also the gift of miracles, healing, and other special gifts. The keys of the Kingdom also play a role in the use of the other gifts I’m pouring out. If I’ve given you a gift, or you would like a gift or want to know if I’m calling you to reach out and receive a special gift from My hand, then you should also ask Me how to use the keys in conjunction with this gift.

34. The keys can give you booster power and enhance the spiritual gifts that I have given you. They are vital to the new gifts that I am pouring out, and you can’t have one without the other. You can’t think, “The Lord has given me the gift of healing, and that’s pretty cool. I don’t have to call on the power of the keys because I have another gift that stands on its own.” In these Endtime days, every single one of the children of David will need the power of the keys.

35. As you enter the Time of the End in earnest and the Endtime scenarios start to befall you, you will see clearly how desperately you will need the keys of the Kingdom. You will not make a move without them. Right now, without having those very desperate situations always before you, you can’t always see how you can practice, but you do need to sharpen your skills in order to be ready for the Endtime game.

36. The way to practice and prepare is to hold Me to My Word, to prove Me, to test the keys, to use them, to try them out, to challenge Me to work miracles through the keys. Ask Me to change a person’s heart and life, and claim the power of the keys. Claim it, pray for it, bring it to Me repeatedly—all using the power of the keys.

37. Start with small things. Anything you have the faith for Me to do or change or work‚ you can call on the power of the keys and practice with the power I’ve given you. You’ll have to keep at it in the beginning. It won’t always appear to you that “the power of the keys” is working every time you call on it. But that’s just because you’re not used to working with the keys and handling them. Or it may not be My timing. Or I’m working in a different way, a way that is not obvious to you.

38. When you’re practicing something‚ you don’t always expect to hit the mark. You get it sometimes, and at other times you don’t. When you hit the mark, you’re happy about it, but when you don’t‚ you realize that it’s just because you’re not skilled yet, and you need more practice. You don’t automatically assume that just because you didn’t hit the mark that time, that it’s impossible to or that your weapon doesn’t work. With time you become accurate every time, and you know exactly how to get the desired results. That’s how it is with the keys.

39. This is practice time. I will do miracles for you even now. If you need a miracle, you can claim it and I will answer you. But you must also realize that this is practice time and I’ve ordained it that way. So have patience and keep at it. If you don’t see the desired results the first time, try again. Don’t just assume that “the keys don’t work.” They do. You simply have to learn how to use them, and that takes time and becoming familiar with them.

40. Most of all, as you’re practicing and becoming acquainted with the keys, ask Me for an extra dose of faith and belief. Faith is vital to using the keys and to being able to improve in your use of the keys. If you believe, then you will progress and learn quickly; if you lack faith and have doubts, then you will meet with frustration and obstacles. Faith is the substance of the miracles you hope for, through the keys, which you cannot see.

41. Claim the power of the keys. Concentrate. Focus. Believe and expect miracles. Ask Me your questions. If you wonder about something‚ ask Me. I will lead you as you practice calling on the power of the keys. As you go along, you will feel your faith and belief being strengthened. You will clearly feel the knowledge in your heart that the keys work‚ that they are powerful, and that you have them at your disposal. As you begin to feel this sensation increase in your heart, you can know that your skill in using the keys of the Kingdom is also advancing, and that you are being prepared for the times to come when your life and service will depend on your ability to harness the power of the keys and to put them to use in your daily life. (End of message.)

42. (Question:) The Lord says we should be claiming the keys all the time. Does He mean that literally? If so, how can we do that?

43. (Jesus:) I have advised you, My children, to pray without ceasing, to give thanks in everything and at all times‚ and to seek Me always. So do I recommend that you use the keys all the time, for they are an important part of your prayer life and communion with Me.

44. In saying this‚ I do not mean that every conscious thought of My children should include the words, “I claim the keys.” I mean that the keys should be an accessory to your state of constant prayerfulness, communion and praise‚ a part of it.

45. When you praise Me, you can use the keys of praise. When you commune with Me or seek Me for personal help, you can call on the power of the keys. When you ask for My help for others or for needy situations as they come to mind, you can send the power of the keys to aid in those situations. The keys can be your constant companions and helpers, and can aid you continually. So make use of them continually. (End of message.)

How do we “validate” the keys in our hearts?

46. (Question:) How do we “validate*” the keys in our hearts? Here is a quote from “More on the Keys—Part 3”:

You must take the keys that I’ve given you and validate them in your own heart and life, and seek the power I have promised. Don’t be lazy. Go forth and preach the Gospel. Do your part to learn to use and access this power so that you can draw people to Me and fulfill My plan. (ML #3354, GN 947)

*(Validate: To authenticate or confirm the validity of. Validating the keys is to know their usefulness and have faith in their power; to know it works and depend on it.)

47. (Jesus:) To validate the keys in your own heart and mind, you must use them. For only in seeing them in action will you increase your faith in their power and be convinced of their importance in your life. You will not see the manifestations of the power of the keys unless you use them. They will not be validated in your heart and mind unless you use them. You must be convinced of their worth, their power, their strength, their usefulness, and what they are capable of! You must be convinced that the keys will do for you what I have promised, and the only way you can be convinced is to see them in action, to see them work, to see them bring miracles.

48. If you’re sitting back and waiting for someone to show you a manifestation of the keys, or for a booming revelation to come down from Heaven, you’re missing the point of the keys. For the keys to work, you must use them. You must put them to work in your life, in your situation. It’s My gift to all of My radical, dropped-out disciples, but it’s also My personal gift to you, and I want you to use it personally and specifically. Don’t just sit around waiting for others to validate the power of the keys; get stirred up in the spirit yourself. Now! Today!

49. Ask Me to show you how I want you to use the keys. You can use the keys in a number of different ways. But ask Me how I want you to specialize. Just as you are physically gifted in certain areas and others around you are gifted in others, so it is with the keys. I have given each one different activation codes, different strengths in the spirit that the keys will enhance and improve on. For example, some will use the keys primarily for healing. Some will use the keys primarily for prophecy, others for interpretation, others for miracles, others for witnessing, others for finding the solutions to their children’s or teens’ problems, and the list goes on.

50. Everyone has available to them the full spectrum of the power of the keys. Each person can call on the power of the keys in any situation, for help in each time of need. But each one will also have one or two primary avenues in which I will ask them to exercise their use of the keys. Depending on your faith, your ministries, your gifts and talents and your desires, I have preordained your activation keys. So each of you must seek Me to find out how I would have you practice with your use of the keys. This is part of the validation process, so that each of you will be fully convinced in your own hearts and minds as you see Me working through the keys on your behalf. (End of message.)

(Jesus:) And now I tell you a mystery, dear loves: The keys to the Kingdom and the Word are one. The keys are not just the Word; they are many things and they take on many forms. They are, however, one with the Word. Through the keys you find entrance to the full counsel of God. The keys open up My full Word power to you. You need not try to understand this with your carnal mind, but only believe.

As My Father and I are One, so are the keys to the Kingdom and the Word one. … I tell you again, you need not ponder this deep truth in your carnal mind—only believe that the power of the keys and the power of the full and complete Words I give to you, My Endtime brides, are one and the same. …

Being an instant doer of My Word is directly linked with your ability to access the power of the keys. Living all the Words I speak to you is directly linked to the power you are able to access. When you live the Word‚ My power flows through you, and you, in a sense, become the living Word, as I was the living Word when I walked on Earth. When you call on the keys, all the power of My Word is at your command. If you are to focus on the power‚ you must look to the power of the keys; you must look to the power of the Words I speak to you; you must be instant doers of the Words I give you.

Nothing can stand against My Word! Nothing can stand against the keys to the Kingdom! Love is the greatest force; My Word is the greatest force; the power of the keys to the Kingdom is the greatest force in the world, in the heavens, in the universe! These three are one, just as My Father and I and the Holy Spirit are one—three separate beings with different attributes, and yet one in the spirit. (ML #3374:32-36, GN 971)

How do the keys enhance our times of loving the Lord intimately?

51. (Question:) How are we to use the keys, practically speaking, in our times of lovemaking with Him to receive the benefits He talks about in “More on the Keys—Part 3”?

With these keys in your hands and put to use, you will find that our times of lovemaking will be more breathtaking and fantastic than ever before. We will please each other in ways you haven’t yet dreamed of! I will be more to you than your most outrageous dreams. You will see a side of My beauty and power that you haven’t yet seen. I will catch you up in My arms and twirl you in a whirlwind of love as we make passionate, uninhibited, liberated love, in a way you’ve never experienced before. I will satisfy you as never before, your senses keenly sharpened. You will feel My love in the places of your heart, mind, body and soul that can only come to life when you use these keys. You’ll be amazed, and praise and thankfulness will fill your hearts as never before. (ML #3354‚ GN 947)

52. (Jesus: ) I have given you the keys as a gift of My great love, to enhance every aspect of your life. There is nothing they cannot do for you, for they are literally the keys to the power of Heaven—which is limitless. There is nothing the power of Heaven cannot do for you; therefore there is nothing that is impossible to you‚ now that you have the keys.

53. I mean for you to use them at every opportunity! I want you to try them out, to seek Me for new ways to use them, to be continually calling on their power and using it all you can! The more you use them, the more you will grow to depend on the power of Heaven. It will become like an addiction‚ to the point that you will feel powerless without it. This is the way I mean for it to be—this is the way it must be in the days ahead. For the powers fighting against you will be increased, and the only way you will survive is to be so closely connected to Heaven’s power, so exercised in using it‚ so familiar with what it can do for you, and completely dependent on it, that you are literally one with the power of Heaven, one with Me!

54. You ask specifically how the keys will enhance our times of lovemaking, or how you can best use the keys in your times of intimacy with Me. You can call on the power of the keys as you enter into My bedchamber, claiming their power to block out distractions and give us a clear, solid connection in the spirit. You can call on the power of the keys to help you leave the earthly world and flesh behind and enter into the true dimension of the spirit. You can use the power of the keys to make the transition to being My bride in the spirit. You can call on the keys to help you overcome any inhibitions that you feel. They can do anything for you, so anything that is on your heart to pray for, or anything that you feel is hindering you‚ I urge you to claim their power to overcome it or to change those circumstances.

55. But‚ My loves, the most thrilling part is that as you use the keys in every aspect of your life, as you step out by faith to call on their power and then witness the difference in the effect of your prayers and your efforts, as you learn to use them effectively, you will find our relationship greatly enhanced automatically.

56. The keys to the power of Heaven draw you closer to Me. Each time you use them, you personally reach out and touch the realm of the spirit. It’s as if you put your hand through the dividing line and turn the key of Heaven to open the doors for the power to pour out abundantly. Each time you do this‚ you become more influenced by the spirit. You become more aware of Me and My power and all that I want to do for you. You experience all that Heaven can do for you, and you realize more fully how much you need it. Your love for Me grows as you see more clearly what a great and wonderful and awesome gift it is that I have given you.

57. Each time you use the keys you become more heavenly minded, more dependent on the spirit. The byproduct of this is that you become more in love with Me, more closely joined to Me‚ more in tune with Me. Then, when you go to make love to Me, to include Me in your times of fellowship or to have special intimate time with Me alone, the passion of the spirit will be within you from the many times you have reached out to the realm of the spirit. Our love together will be increased, your sensitivity to My Spirit will be increased, your passion for Me will be increased, and I will be able to more easily bestow upon you all the love I wish to give you. Your love for Me will flow easily‚ and it will be easier for you to make the transition to the realm of the spirit, leaving your earthly existence behind and joining Me in My bedchamber for times of passionate‚ renewing, thrilling lovemaking.

58. So My loves, call on the power of the keys if you feel hindered or lacking in any way. Don’t hesitate! Praise Me for the keys. Thank Me for them and the things they do for you, or what you’re most thankful for about them‚ or how they help you, just as any wife would thank her husband if he gave her such a powerful gift. And when you step out to use them in your daily life, you will also feel the benefits in our times of loving.

59. I’m looking forward to it. It will be a taste of Heaven, a little taste of all that is to come. The keys connect you more closely to Heaven and all that is waiting for you, and they can give you a measure of the power that will be yours when you are here with Me. They can do anything for you! Use them! (End of message.)

60. The keys can never be taken from you, but you can neglect to use them, and in that sense you are giving them up. Or when you do not meet the conditions for their use fully, you also limit their power.

Have Christians throughout all time had access to the keys?

61. (Jesus: ) I confirm to you again, the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven were primarily for My early disciples who walked with Me on the Earth, and for you, the children of David. This is because I knew you would not only need them, but have the faith to use them.

62. I have not withdrawn the keys from those who needed them or had the faith to use them. Some Christians through the ages have accessed the keys when they have had the need and the faith‚ but this has only been in part—they could only access a certain amount of power. One reason they could not access the full power is that they did not call specifically on the keys, saying the words, “I call on the keys,” or “I release the power of the keys of the Kingdom.” Nor did they call on specific keys, saying, “I call on the key of faith” and so on. Therefore they were limited in their use of the keys, in part because of lack of knowledge of how to use them.

63. They were aware that I said, “I give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven—and this means I give you power to bind on Earth and to loose on Earth.” But they did not seek to know the inner workings of the keys, to know how to use the keys, to know all the keys by name, and to know the full strength of their power. This has been veiled from mankind until this time, for it was not for them to know.

64. As I revealed at the time of the Feast 2001‚ full access to the keys of the Kingdom is given to the children of David. Others may have known in part and used them in part, but the full power and the full access is given to the children of David.

65. There are many keys, and I give the children of David access to them all. Again, this is because you will need them—you, upon whom the ends of the world will come; you‚ who are My pure and called-out Endtime church. If the children of David are not true to this calling—if they do not stay pure and called out, I am able to withdraw the full access to the power of the keys.

66. Down through the ages the keys of the Kingdom have been connected with power. As I told My disciples, “Whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven” (Mat.16:19). When I said this, I was referring to binding the power of Satan and loosing the power of Heaven to fight on your behalf.

67. My early disciples witnessed the power of Satan; they saw his dirty work in people’s lives. They saw one possessed of a devil, and in that day‚ they called a spade a spade. It was not like today when men invent heady words and use double talk to evade the real issues at hand. So when I gave My disciples the keys of the Kingdom, they understood that this meant they had power to fight evil—and they went out and used the power. They rebuked devils in My Name, and these who walked with Me on Earth understood that this was through the power of the keys of the Kingdom I gave them. They understood that the keys were to lock and to unlock‚ to bind and to loose.

68. Throughout history, the picture is not one of every single Christian who has ever lived having the keys in their hands. The partial use of the keys has been available, but not all Christians throughout history have used the keys, just as not all Christians have availed themselves much of My Words. Not all Christians have been active in using My Word, nor in seeking out My living Word, but many have instead chosen to ignore My Word or give it very little importance and predominance in their lives. So it has been with the keys of the Kingdom.

69. When I gave the keys of the Kingdom to My first disciples‚ they recorded it, and you have that record in My written Word, the Bible. Thus the keys have been with mankind since that time, for those who had the need and the faith. But again‚ this has only been in part, for as I told you at the time, I put the keys in your hands, and it is given to the children of David to have full access to the keys, to have the full power of the keys, unlimited access, because this is going to be needed in the Last Days.

70. Some of the keys and some access to the keys has always been available to Christians since I came to Earth, but because of lack of understanding of them and how to use them, lack of faith or knowledge of their power, and not being as desperately in need of the enhanced power they hold, many have not used them. You could say the keys have been sitting here available for use to some extent, but few have taken hold of them, picked them up and put them to use in their lives.

71. There have been a few Christians through the ages—those who sincerely loved Me, who were humble in My sight and in the sight of man, those who loved Me above all else and had a passion to do My will above all, who were aided by the keys of the Kingdom.

72. Joan of Arc, for example, found strength and power in the keys, and the keys of the Kingdom helped her defy the impossible, to lead men’s armies and to fight and win. And there have been many others, simple folk, yet men and women of faith who simply went ahead by faith and trusted in Me and My power.

73. They didn’t always know they were empowered by the keys in the way that you are. They didn’t have as much detail and insight into the keys as I have given you, but because of their simple faith to trust in Me, and knowing I gave power to bind and to loose even when they didn’t understand every single detail, the keys stood by them. They knew that they had power—My power through them—to bind Satan’s power on Earth and to loose the power of Heaven to work for them.

74. Other Christians down through the ages have tried to fit the keys into a box. They have theorized and agonized over the true meaning of the keys; theologians, supposed scholars of My Words. These have held on to the letter of the law and have not followed My Spirit, and because of this they have conjured up twisted interpretations of what the keys are, what they do‚ what their function is.

75. But you, My insatiable queen Maria, have asked. You have sought diligently after Me and sought to know the meaning of the keys. You have come to Me over and over and over, always returning for more, always hungry for more. And I have not sent you empty away. I have given the children of David full access to the keys‚ and I have answered your questions about the keys, as I will continue to do. For unto you it is given to have the full power of Heaven at your side in these Last Days.

76. You’ve taken other things by faith, and you must take the keys of the Kingdom by faith too. The proof will be in the results. Some trust in chariots, some in horses, but those who put their trust in Me, and in the keys, they will rise above, and there will be no impossibilities to them. (End of message.)

77. (Jesus: ) Others who stand with you in mind, heart‚ and spirit, who become one with you and with the doctrine that I have given to the children of David, will also be blessed with access to the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven to varying degrees. It is a matter of heart, of trust‚ of faith, of belief and acceptance. The keys will not yield themselves to those of impure hearts and wrong intentions. The keys cannot be tricked, nor duped.

How do we explain the keys to those outside the Family?

78. (Question:) How would we explain the keys in a Statement of Faith using Biblical references as a basis to substantiate our emphatic belief and practice of the keys?

79. Should we witness about the keys?

80. Should we claim the keys out loud with people we’ve just met who’ve asked for prayer? In the Family‚ often when we pray together for something we say, “Please, Jesus, we claim the keys and ask You to do this miracle,” for example. Should we also do that if let’s say we meet a lady while postering and she asks us to pray for her son who has cancer, right then and there? Do we mention the keys and claim them as we pray, or just claim them silently in public and aloud only when we’re with others who actually know what this means?

81. (Jesus:) Whether and when to claim the power of the keys with those outside the Family, especially those you have just met, will have to be judged on a case-by-case basis‚ but there is certainly a time and place for doing so. You will want the power to be understood, and you will have to explain it to them somewhat.

82. The best way to explain to outsiders your calling on the keys is to keep it as simple as possible. The term “keys of the Kingdom” should not be completely foreign to sincere practicing Christians‚ for it is written in My Word of old. Therefore‚ you can simply quote them Matthew 16:19. You can explain that I have shown you to take this promise literally, to claim the power I have given you, the very power of Heaven, and use it, by faith, to receive answers and miracles.

83. You can use this scripture in its entirety, for it indicates that I have given the keys of the Kingdom in order that you might bind and loose power according to the need. It will be best, in most cases, not to get into a lengthy explanation, but simply explain that you are reminding Me that I have given you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, and that by this authority you are able to bind powers and loose powers to work on your behalf, to claim My promises and miracle-working power. There will be some cases where I will lead you to give a more in-depth explanation to others who are particularly close to you. Seek My guidance as you hear from Me on the matter and I will show you how much to say, to whom and when.

84. Certainly you will want to teach those you are following up on and feeding regularly about the power of the keys. As you have been instructed numerous times, you should not hold back in teaching your converts and outside members about the meat of the Word‚ the radical or different beliefs of the Family. It is not wise to refrain from such instruction for long‚ because if you begin relatively soon in teaching your friends about some of the unorthodox beliefs and truths of the Words of David, it will become obvious early on if those friends have what it takes to stick with you for the long haul.

85. So seek Me about how to feed your sheep‚ but know that it is My will to teach them about the keys eventually, just as it is My will that you teach them about hearing from Me in prophecy, teamworking with spirit helpers and spirit beings, the full truth of the Law of Love, and the basics of loving Me intimately. They will find out about these beliefs eventually, so do the loving thing and trust your converts with the truth‚ presented in love and wisdom, rather than letting them be hurt and stumbled by hearing about it from your enemies or from those who do not share such things in love and wisdom.

86. It is according to your faith as to when you offer an explanation concerning the keys, but there will be many times when you should definitely do so and when it will boost your witness‚ as well as strengthen your own faith. It will make those you are ministering to seek and hunger after the truths of My Word and the power of My Spirit. It goes right along with the ministry of miracles. They will see both the miracles and how they are brought about. That is a very important part of your witness, not just the fact that you can do miracles in My Name, but the fact that you are humbly acknowledging that it is completely My power, not your own; that it is the power of Heaven, spiritual power, through the keys of the Kingdom, which are activated only by faith in Me, and not by anything of yourself.

87. The power that will be manifested through you because you call on the keys of the Kingdom will not be hidden. It will be no secret that you walk with Me. My power will be seen in you; there will be no denying it. In this sense, the keys will speak for themselves, because those you pray for and claim the power of the keys with will know, for My Spirit in you will bear witness. Often little explanation will be needed, because of the authority by which you pray, and because the proof will be in the answers to prayer that you receive by calling on the keys.

88. There will be some who mock and scoff. Just as I told My immediate followers when I walked on the Earth‚ even though I raise one from the dead, there would be those who do not believe. So will it be with you; yet those who are open in heart and mind will recognize My Spirit working in you, and they will accept your simple explanation. To those who mock, for the most part, anything more than a simple explanation will only complicate matters; therefore give them the scripture and let the chips fall where they may. (End of message.)

*

89. (Jesus:) The Family should witness about the keys. They should use the keys in their witness and tell others about this beautiful gift. I will show you the time and place and how much to witness concerning the keys.

90. The keys are a part of your life and you’re living them and using them; you can’t leave this very important and beautiful part of the spirit world out of your witness. You not only should witness about the keys, but you will want to talk about them; in fact, it’ll just be natural to do so. You’ll find that as time goes on it’ll become second nature to pray and claim the keys even when praying for or with those you’re witnessing to.

91. Questions will come up and people will ask you what you mean by the keys. Simply explain it and use it in your witness. Not all will receive it, just as not everyone receives Me or other deep truths of the spirit world. But it’s not your concern to worry about who will believe and receive the truth; your job is simply to be My messengers and witnesses, to be sensitive to My Spirit, and try to present things wisely and in My timing. I will do the work of giving them faith.

92. Even if you try to avoid openly talking about the keys initially until the person you’re witnessing to is ready to receive more, there will be times when it’ll just slip out‚ and you’ll say “the keys.” Don’t worry about it. If that happens, it’s because I’ve allowed it to happen. The keys aren’t something you need to hide or be fearful of others finding out about. I’ve given the keys to the Family as a special gift of the spirit to help My disciples in the days ahead. You need this spiritual weapon for the battles to come. You’ll need the keys to help you to witness in the days ahead. It might seem like a stretch of the imagination today to some people, but the time is coming when the world will be so polluted with strange doctrines and spirits that the keys will be as water to a thirsty soul. They will be as pure light, and many will receive them, for their spirit will bear witness. I will use the Family to teach many about the keys, to show them how to use them and be blessed by their power.

93. The full power of the keys is a special gift to the Family‚ but they aren’t reserved only for the Family. Right now you’re the main Christians using them, but the time will come when others will use them as well. Today the Family uses them more fully because of your faith and because you’ve had a head start, but you must teach others to have faith in the many truths of the spirit world that I’ve revealed to you. Others will benefit from the power of the keys in their life. The Family will benefit from the power of the keys in witnessing and winning others to Me. The keys will open doors to witnessing in places that you wouldn’t otherwise go; they’ll give you access to the hearts of many. Many will believe and receive because they’ll see your testimony and the manifestations of the power of the keys. (End of message.)

*

94. (Jesus:) Right now, the power of the keys and belief in this power seems like a major Family doctrine or emphasis. But in reality, when put in perspective with everything else that I have shown you and that you believe and stand for, the keys are only one of many important beliefs. As important as the keys are for this time, it’s not like you’ve started a new religion or belief system based around them. They are a part of Me and My Spirit, and the things I have revealed to you about them are an expansion of basic Biblical principles.

95. The power of the keys is based on the scriptures in Matthew where I told My disciples that I was giving them the power of the keys of Heaven, that nothing was impossible to them, that all power was given to Me in Heaven and in Earth, and that whatever they would bind on Earth would be bound in Heaven, or if they loosed it on Earth, it would be loosed in Heaven (Matthew 16:19, 17:20, 18:18, 28:18). If you take these promises literally, everything else that I have shown you about the keys merely expounds upon that foundation.

96. I have said that I chose to reveal the secrets of the keys of the Kingdom to the children of David, and that I had reserved this knowledge for you. This does not mean, however, that you are the only ones who can use it. I want you to teach others about it as well. The full power comes only to those who yield their all, who give all their hearts to Me, and there are many conditions for its use, which I have laid out to you in previous messages. There are others, those not within your circle, who will be drawn to you, and who will want to be one with you in spirit, and who will be willing to give their hearts and spirits to Me, and to whom I will grant the use of the power of the keys, all to varying degrees.

97. I have said that you will be known as the people of the keys, and the only way this will come about is if you tell others about this power, teach them its meaning, and teach them how to use it. This is the destiny of the children of David—to become those who hold the power of the keys‚ who are known for its power, and who teach others to believe and accept and use this power.

98. It is through this power that you will become the leaders of the Christian world in the Last Days. They will need this power to make it through the Tribulation, as you will, and they will know and see that you are the ones well versed in it, who understand it, who have experienced it, and they will come to you to learn of you. As those who are My children and who are worthy of the power of the keys humble themselves to learn about it from you, I will grant this power unto them as well. (End of message.)

(From “Call on the Keys,” ML #3368:80-81:)

There are conditions attached to using the keys:

1) We have to be obeying the Lord and asking for something that is within His will.

2) “I will only give it to those who are respectful of My Words, and who are willing to be taught and instructed.”

3) “The keys are only activated through sincerity of heart.”

4) “Without the quality of a deep love for Me, dedication, and yieldedness to Me, the keys give no power.”

5) “The gift of the keys is only for those who go further, who love Me, who live for Me, and who give their lives for Me.”

6) “The gift of the keys is for My Endtime disciples. So seek within your own heart for the desire to be a disciple.”

7) “The power of the keys will equal your commitment to discipleship, and not only your commitment‚ but your day-to-day living. As you dedicate yourself, and live your dedication daily, the power will come to you in the same measure. Then you must harness it and utilize it.”

99. (Question:) Lord, in the list above, You said, “The gift of the keys is only for those who go further, who love Me, who live for Me, and who give their lives for Me.” Can You please explain that a little more, because we’ve heard of friends and Active members using the keys and seeing miracles, but they don’t seem to have met all these conditions?

100. (Jesus:) When I speak of those who live for Me, who give Me everything, I judge on a case-by-case basis. I look at how much they have, how much they have been given, how much they are holding back from Me. It’s hard for you to look at this and see it as fair or accurate, because you judge by earthly standards. But I look at the heart, and when I say it’s for those who go further, who give their lives for Me, I mean it’s for those who give more than they think they can, who are indeed willing to give Me everything. But that is something that only I can see and judge.

101. So you can know that if the keys are working for someone, it’s because I know they are worthy of using them, or I know that they need that in their life. It’s the same with those whom I give gifts of the spirit. Sometimes I give them to babes who need them or will use them for My glory‚ or are already using everything they’ve got. The gift of the keys is for those who give Me everything they can‚ who go further than just the minimum, who are willing to use the power for My glory alone. (End of message.)

(From key promises: )

There is no stopping those who use the keys of the Kingdom in conjunction with My will, in desperation of heart and humility of mind and spirit.

When the conditions are right, the keys will always bring you victory. Claim what is rightfully yours.

How much can new converts and friends have access to the promise of the keys?

102. (Question:) How much access to the promise of the keys do our new converts have, if they aren’t giving You their all?

103. (Jesus:) The more you give to Me or the more you fulfill the conditions‚ the more you can stand on a promise. “No good thing will I withhold from them that walk uprightly” (Psa.84:11). If those you’re ministering to are endeavoring to walk uprightly, I will give to them as they claim the key promises. The keys won’t be as powerful in their life as they are in the lives of those giving their all to Me‚ but they are still powerful.

104. You must teach your new converts and your friends about the promise of the keys. They too must go through the Endtime, so they too need knowledge of this new weapon, this new gift I’ve given that will empower them to make it through the rough days ahead.

105. However, in order for your friends and new converts to have full faith in Me and My Words for today, they must have the rock foundation of the Bible‚ which again shows why they need to be learning and leaning on the Bible promises as well. (End of message.)

Can others have access to the keys of the Kingdom?

106. (Questions: ) Can others outside the Family, who have not been exposed to the Family, have access to the keys of the Kingdom?

107. (Jesus:) I first gave the keys of the Kingdom to My early disciples, and as I have since explained, I was talking not only to them, but also to you. The keys of the Kingdom are for those who love Me, follow Me, and need that extra power in their lives. However, there are few in the world today who are aware of their power, and there are few who stop to listen and seek Me diligently enough to learn the secrets of their power, and how to use them.

108. So while I don’t rule out that others can use them, in accordance with their measure of discipleship, commitment, and dedication to Me, there are few who are desperate enough with Me that they have stopped and listened and learned the full truth of the keys’ power. In fact, at this point in time there are none, save you, the children of David‚ who have received so much about the keys and how to use them.

109. However, in the days to come, the word of the keys will spread. You, My intimate brides‚ will be known as the people of the keys, and the keys will be given due credit for the role they play in the miracles performed. From this, word will spread, and many who do not know you will be interested in the keys and how to also learn to use their power. Some will seek you out‚ and you will teach them of the life of disciples, and through their commitment to Me, they will also gain access to the keys.

110. However, there will be others who will not have the opportunity to meet you and be fed at your hand, but if they seek Me diligently and act on what I tell them, I will also entrust them with knowledge of the keys, and will begin to reveal secrets to them. Again, this will be a rare case, for there are not many who desire to live their lives with such dedication that they can call freely on the keys. Most of those who do, I will bring into your fold in some form or another, so that they might be taught and trained by the Words of David. But there will be some for whom that opportunity is not possible, and to them, if they desire and listen, will I give a measure of understanding of the keys, and they will start to use them.

111. In all cases, the keys will glorify Me and will be given to those who are My intimate brides in spirit. So in that sense, they are one of you even if they have never known you. (End of message.)

How many keys are there, and how do we know which one to use?

112. (Question:) The following quote from “More on the Keys—Part 1,” and two quotes from personal prophecies, indicate that there are different keys for different uses. Can You please explain more about that? How many keys are there, and how do we know which one to use for what purpose?

113. (Jesus: ) My precious ones, now is not the time to relax or to let down your guard. Don’t become complacent, knowing you possess the keys to unlock any door. For though they will unlock any door for you, you must learn the skill of turning the keys in the locks. You must learn which key opens which door. I will not hold back the approaching night of gross darkness much longer, so it is high time to realize and then release the power that I have placed within your hands and to practice with the keys. For in the darkness you will need to be masters of the keys. (ML #3349, GN 942)

*

114. (Jesus: ) I have given you each the gift of faith and the keys of the Kingdom. This is a perfect time to begin using the keys of the Kingdom, and even delving into the spirit world deeper to find what specific keys I’ve given you, and what their particular features are.

*

115. (Jesus:) This new age for My children has placed many new gifts in your hands. I have opened the heavens, the very gates of My Kingdom, and given you the means to avail yourselves of all that you need to face the difficulties of this day and age. I placed the keys to My Kingdom in your hands, and each one of My brides must find out exactly which keys I will teach them how to use. Often My loves find out which keys are theirs to master by present tribulations they face, for through these tests they are able to reach up and find that I have granted them the solution through a gift of My Spirit.

116. (Jesus: ) Yes, there are many keys. The keys of the Kingdom are not just one key with one use, nor even one small key ring with several important uses. If they were to be pictured in earthly terms, they would comprise a huge, massive, powerful key ring. For every impossibility, there is a key that is perfectly designed to transform it into a possibility. There is a key for everything. This is why there are no impossibilities, because for each seeming impossibility there is a spiritual law put into effect by the keys, which renders that impossibility void. There are an unlimited number of keys, because I can continually make new ones if needed—although I have a mighty grand collection already covering just about any scenario.

117. For every evil opposing spiritual force‚ there is a spiritual solution through the keys. For every negative, there is a positive. Sometimes because of the problem you face, it will be apparent what type of key to use. For example, if you are battling doubts or fears, you would call upon the key of faith. If you are struggling with health problems, you would call upon the key of healing or relief from pain. If you have a desperate need, you would call upon the key of supply or miracles. If you are being besieged by bitterness or resentment, you would call upon the key of forgiveness or freedom.

118. If it is not clear which key to call upon, then use your gift of prophecy, which works hand in hand with the keys, to ask Me specifically what key to call upon. I will show you. I will put the answer within your heart.

119. There is a key of answers, and this will be one of the keys that you can call upon and activate, for it is the key that allows you entrance to the more inner chamber, and within this inner chamber you find the next key. Sometimes you will have to call on the keys two or three or more times until a situation is completely resolved. You may have to first call on the key of answers, then the key of healing, then the keys of spiritual deliverance, or others as the case may be. But remember that there is an answer key‚ and when you know you need to use the keys but don’t know which key to use, call upon that key and from there all will be revealed.

120. Even if you just call on “the keys of the Kingdom” or “the power of the keys” you are unleashing great and mighty spiritual power. But as you hone your gifts of using the keys and learn what specific keys to use, you will unleash even greater power, and you will also have the satisfaction of seeing specific answers to specific prayers, which will strengthen and increase your faith. The keys can be used to varying degrees, but I want you to use them to their greatest power. I want you to hold them within your grasp and learn the beauty and power of each one; to become masters of the keys, skilled in their arts, opening each and every door that you desire to enter. (End of message.)

121. (Mama: ) Following are a few “definitions” of various keys that I compiled from GNs and prophecies given over the last year or two. Of course‚ we know that this is just barely scratching the surface, but it’s a good example of how each key does have a specific purpose, and the more we ask and listen and learn and practice, we really will become more accurate and effective in our use of the keys. It’s not just a “hit and miss” type thing‚ but a true science of the spirit that the Lord is expecting us to become experts in!

122. …There is a key of prayer, which you can claim to help you be more fervent in your prayers and a better intercessor (ML #3440, GN 1027).

123. …Claim the keys of all-knowing love, of seeing beyond the natural and all that surrounds you, of basing your life on My Word and My promises, even it if touches your own heart and requires you to make certain sacrifices in order to live it. Claim the power of the keys of keeping your heart and mind fixed upon Me and My Word above all, your feelings subservient, and your spirit and heart transcending all that this Earth possesses (ML #3434:65, GN 1017).

More on the keys of all-knowing love:

124. This key has the power to help you and all your children see things as they really are, to see beyond emotions, beyond the heart of man to the very heart of God. This is the key of all-knowing love. You will need this key in the coming days. Its power lies in its magnitude, its foresight, its ability to see beyond human love and emotions to what lies ahead, what lies within the realm of the spirit, which is so far beyond the flesh and earthly life. Just like love, it has an extra spiritual eye which sees beyond the flesh and the carnal, and transports you instantly into the realm of the spirit and how the Lord sees things (ML #3443:40, GN 1024).

125. Claim the keys of consecration that you may give yourselves to Me fully. … When your hearts are open before Me and you lay your all at My feet, holding nothing back, fearing nothing, then I am able to empower you in a wonderful way. You become superhuman, possessing strength, resolve and faith beyond human capabilities. You are linked to Me in yieldedness, and we are one. This is the state where you can be the most effective in your prayers.

126. It also effectively blocks out the Enemy’s thoughts, fears, worries, and distractions. You have just given everything to Me, so there’s nothing he can use against you to pull you away or distract you from your mission of fighting in prayer. Claim the keys of consecration‚ My loves, and be fully Mine (ML #3449:69, 74, GN 1034).

*

127. Claim the keys of focus, so that you can direct your prayers accurately and that they will hit the mark in the spirit. If you focus with your spiritual senses, I am able to punch through and bring to mind important details that you would never have thought of or known or become aware of otherwise—details which could mean the difference between a quick victory or a long, drawn-out battle; a speedy resolution or a more roundabout solution; a victorious soldier or a wounded casualty (ML #3449:77, GN 1034).

*

128. Ask for the key of adventure to help you to look forward to new horizons (ML #3412:81, GN 998).

129. When I ask you to call on the keys of imprisonment, this has a dual meaning. Some of these lesser demons can indeed be cast out and bound elsewhere‚ whether it be in the depths of the sea or the heart of the earth, where many are prisoners already. For others, when you use the keys of imprisonment, you lock the doors around yourself or around others, so that demons cannot enter to harass you and hinder your work. In a manner of speaking, you imprison yourself in a force field which is impenetrable to the attacks of these evil ones, or erect an invisible wall in front of them when they would come toward you. It is much like you act out in your box skits, where the unwary person bumps into an invisible wall when he goes the wrong way. Thus it is with unwary demons who would come your way when you are protected by these keys—they run smack into an invisible wall‚ or a very visible fireball, if need be! (ML #3434:16, GN 1017).

More on the keys of imprisonment:

130. The keys of imprisonment have the specific jurisdiction of guarding My Word from attacks of Obstacon in your personal life. When you claim the keys of imprisonment in relation to your quality Word time, they seal you as if behind closed doors and prevent any attacks of the Enemy from hindering the flow of My Word. These keys not only seal you behind My invisible force field of protection, but they also lock out the Enemy from influencing you. You hold the keys, and just like a gatekeeper or custodian, you must guard the key wisely and keep it safe. You must use the key in order for it to be effective (Unpublished).

131. The keys of commitment make you proud of your calling and determined never to lose your crown (Unpublished).

132. There are keys of empowerment‚ and they are somewhat different than other more specific keys, which is why their name—that of empowerment—is what you might call a general one. In one case‚ calling on the keys of empowerment might give you more love, in another case more boldness, in another case the ability to yield more easily. They supply you with more power to perform that which you wish to do, calling upon other keys as necessary (Unpublished).

133. The keys of containment work by setting up boundaries in any situation, whether it’s for your security and safety, a defense against attacks of the Enemy, against sickness and natural disasters, any situation that needs control beyond your human means. The keys of containment prevent the Enemy from proceeding further than My highest will when you call upon them. They work by standing guard, by surrounding you like an army of warriors, to protect and keep back attacks of the Enemy, or to keep things from going any further. For example, you can claim the keys of containment against bad media coverage and negative publicity. You can control situations and keep events from escalating to your harm through the keys of containment (Unpublished).

134. The keys of inspiration specialize in imparting to you hot-off-the-griddle, workable ideas and solutions when you feel like you’re at the end of your rope and have exhausted all your
