Are You Ready? It is a Tremendous Investment

Prophetic Article by Thomas Downes(
Are you ready to hear what has been stored up for you in the Heavens? Are you ready to be brought into a revelation of what His calling is for the future you anticipate being a part of? Have you been preparing yourself as a watchman on the wall, guarding the safe haven that has been protecting the ones you love? For the weapons of your warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Have you not known, have you not heard, that the Lord of Heaven and earth does not grow weary or tired of you? You may become tired and weary yourself of waiting for answers, calling upon the Lord and not hearing or seeing what He wants to show you. But you need to know that He has been preparing you for the hope of your calling, He has been preparing you for the revelation of the riches of His inheritance in the saints. For Christ is dwelling in your heart by faith. So that you being rooted and grounded in love will begin to understand the length, the width, the depth, and the height and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God. There is a fountain that is flowing straight from the heart of our God. It is the Word He has been sending you. There is a stream that flows straight from Emmanuel’s veins. It came to heal you. It came to seal you.  It came to wash your sins away.  It is the purchase price that was paid for your redemption. The end result of this price is the riches of the Father’s  inheritance in the saints. And you personally are the inheritance He longs for.

He longs for the day when you return to Him and call Him your own, because He has called you His own son, His own daughter. He calls out to you as a Father who has been missing someone so important to His Family that He had to send the Redeemer through such an awesome path, such an incredible mission. It seems unfathomable that you or I could be thought of in such way that He would draw you to Himself using such  means as the sacrifice that was expressed. But The Father knew there would never be any other way that would have worked for Him. It had to be done. There would be no other plan or approach that would accomplish His purpose.

Are you understanding His purpose now? For this purpose was the Son of God manifest: to destroy the works of the evil one. You have an adversary, the devil, who seeks to destroy the person you have been called to be. He has a mission to totally divert you, totally confuse you, totally annihilate your sense of self-worth, your sense of belonging, your sense of destiny in the Lord. This is because he knows that the power of God that has been made ready for you, will totally defeat him. The adversary doesn’t want you to know, or even be aware of this tremendous investment that has been placed upon you, and is within you. It is Christ in you, the Hope of Glory..

Turn around, now, and face the one Who has loved you with an everlasting love. Pride will cause you to fall, and that is what the adversary has been licking his chops for, to see to it that your pride will cause your fall. The first thing mentioned in Proverbs Chapter 6 that the Lord hates is a proud look. but it is also the trick used by the enemy to keep your life in such a shambles that you would never be effective because of it. Turn around now and face the One Who loves you, Who is still outstretching His arms to you with His everlasting love.

“For I know the thoughts I have toward you”, says the Lord, “thoughts of peace and not of evil. to give you a future and hope. Return unto Me and I will return unto you. There is nothing too hard for Me says the Lord, for I will abundantly pardon when you return to Me with your whole heart. And I will be found by you when you seek Me and search for Me with your whole heart. For the arm of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save. Now gives thanks for this unspeakable gift that has been afforded to you by the Blood of the Lamb. For you shall overcome by the Blood of the Lamb, and the word of your testimony, says the Lord.”
