Prophetic Warning: Who Is Your All?

This morning I had a dream where God showed me several cases of idolatry. I only remember one part of the dream because I was curious, even in the dream, as to why this woman was judged guilty. I know that this word is for someone. My beloved sisters, please be careful not to make an idol of a man. It’s the same for you, brothers – never make an idol of a woman you love. It’s idolatry before the Lord and therefore NOT HARMLESS. Fear God and you will be healed and set free!

In the dream, I saw a young woman (around 20 years old) who was happy to be with the love of her life. I was shown a scene from her everyday life: she kissed him goodbye in the morning as they were leaving the house and she told him that he was her all. My All,” she said. Now in the dream, I was being led from one scene to another to see in which cases people were committing idolatry and displeasing God. As I saw the young couple, I could not understand why the weight of her sin should be so heavy. I asked the Lord and the woman spoke again, this time for everyone in the street to hear, that the man was My All! I then understood why. She was actually worshipping the man, not God. Even if in reality she was not telling everyone or even her lover that he was her all, God knew what was deep inside her heart, He exposed it by making her say it herself. This is what happens when you are before God. You cannot fake it. Your mouth will say what’s inside and what you’re mostly thinking about.

Warnings From Israel’s History

For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.” We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. We should not test Christ, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.

These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 

1. Corinthians 10:1-15 NIV

Remember the number one commandment we are to obey as God’s people:

And God spoke all these words: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.”

Exodus 20:1-3 NIV

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.”

Matthew 22:37-38 NIV

Here is a prayer you can pray:

My God, I thank you that you examine my heart and that you tell me what's going on inside my heart. Forgive me for making an idol out of the man I desire and giving him more room than You. I repent for breaking the very first commandment and I ask you to release me from this burden of sin. Please set me free from deception so that I may not perish. Fill me with Your Spirit that I may see you more clearly! Open the eyes of my heart and awaken a hunger in me, only for You. I want to pursue you more than I pursue this guy. I am truly sorry for grieving you and making you jealous. I am sorry for not believing that you are the love of my life. I cannot see it yet, God, my heart fails me again and again, but you are strong where I am weak. So I surrender my heart to you and ask you to do what only you can do. Show me the next steps so that I can live out what I just confessed and really return to you. I praise you for your mercy and goodness. Thank you for your love. I believe, Lord. Give me grace and give me faith. Amen.

God bless you!

Do you want real intimacy with God?

Dear Christians,

When you want real intimacy with the Lord, learn to be still and learn to wait. Just wait and be gentle with God. Be like the woman who sat still at Jesus’ feet, listening to Him, or be like the man who rested his head on Jesus’ chest and was so close to Him that he almost whispered into His ear. Would you want to talk to a friend who only comes to get something from you and is impatient with you? Or would you entrust your secrets to someone who never really listens?

Don’t you love him? Is He not enough for you? Listen, God still loves you the same because He is a Father but even no earthly father would walk intimately with a child who does not trust Him and therefore always hurries to solve things on his or her own. Learn to choose the better. It’s a process but keep moving forward.

Isn’t it a covenant of love we have with God and not some one-sided drama?

With Love,
Seulji

Encouragement for the Prophetic

Hey you,

Are you prophetic and maybe feeling like you’re at the end of yourself?

There are times when something does not happen the way we expected it to happen and we can feel devastated. We start thinking, ‘was it all wrong, did I imagine stuff? Did I hear right?’ and even, ‘am I prophetic at all?!’ This is his plan, to make us doubt everything that God has ever told us.

It’s confusing and painful but I want to encourage you to guard your heart by reminding yourself who you are in Christ – you are still God’s child and it is no longer you but Christ who lives in you. Get back to the basics, to the simple gospel of Christ for the very spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Christ! We know His will in Christ: to rejoice, to give thanks and to pray with no ceasing.

Here’s the truth: You ARE prophetic and you DO see and hear from God in a special way. Move on, keep coming up higher to the throne room of God and being blunt about how you feel before Him even though it takes courage! It’s okay to lament, it’s okay to cry out to Him. There’s no fear in love, God will never push away the brokenhearted and contrite who just ask for His saving hand. He knows we all need some space to just lash out with our emotions. He is a compassionate God.

I pray for everyone who reads this and is going through the same thing right now that you will receive a comforting touch of the Holy Spirit today. That you will let go of fear and receive refreshment in body, soul and spirit as you encounter Him. The onslaught of the enemy is heavy, I tell you!!! It’s okay, it’s alright. You’re alright. God’s got you.

With Love,
Seulji
