7-30-2008 Lisa: I recently read your testimony, "This is Love" and I appreciate the things you wrote. It is certainly what we have been taught out of the apostle and prophet's mouth by the Spirit of God. You quoted the scripture, 1Jn5:3, For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous". I want to remind you of what Eph5:21 says, "Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God, 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything". This is a commandment by the Spirit of God out of the apostle Paul's heart and it has been minstered to the church over and over, by the Spirit of God out of the apostle Doyle's heart. We must ask ourselves, if we can't submit to our husbands, do we have love? 1Cor13 speaks about love and if we read it with the word obedience, in place of the word charity, we find "it profiteth us nothing", if we can't obey the commandments that we've been given, and I'm not speaking of the ten commandments.
God Bless you, Kathy
4-8-2008 I believe the Lord spoke this verse to me concerning you, Lisa, and the things he has spoken to you: Lk1:45, "And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord."
God Bless You, Kathy
I was out shoveling the walk tonight and thinking about Michael Highland requesting that his wife Patricia, stop all contact with Doyle Davidson, Water of Life and her friend Linda Murphy. Years ago I told God that I didn't want to miss what He was speaking in the earth and I told him that more than once. When God instructed Doyle to broadcast the meetings live on the internet I thanked God, it was an answer to prayer. Patricia agreed to do what the prophet told her and Doyle, by the Spirit of God told her to go home and submit to her husband. The only way she can hear God will be for Him to talk directly to her and even though she has shared about times that God has spoken to her, her husband has cut her off from hearing what He speaks out of the prophet's mouth, from fellowship with other believers and from a sister she has walked with in this gospel for three years. I pray God grants her the grace to humble herself and obey the word and God will deliver her. I pray God grants Michael Highland mercy and blesses him.
As I was thinking about this situation, it came in my heart, you are in the same place, Lisa. You are cut off from God, from the things He is speaking in the earth and from fellowship with other believers. What I have learned is, holding on to my pride isn't worth the price. Like you, I have children and grandchildren and I want them safe. I have read,Isa47:7, And thous saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it. 8,therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: 9, But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments. 10, For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou has said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside thee. I'm learning that humility is a choice and I would rather humble myself and not wait for God to humble me. I pray God grants you the grace to do the same.
I believe God will bring you home because His word will not return to Him void. Nu23:19, God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken and shall he not make it good?
