Why is it Weird to be Honest

PicturePeople of God press forward. Many in the body of Christ are reclaiming their position and stance back in God. We are headed to our mountain top experience. We have experienced the valley, the desert and the fire so that we could be pruned from dead works, stripped from our selfishness, self opinions and criticisms. Cleansed from Delusions, chronic deception and distortions from the enemy within and without. I encourage you to lock hands and connect heart to heart as we move forward as a mighty army claiming territory promised to the people of God. No time to waste and no time to lose. Matt 24:22 Hold fast people of God. The glory will fall like never seen before. Haggai 2:9 Saith the Lord...
Word of the Lord as given to Pastor Sharon Burns

“All Glory & Honor to the King of King & the Lord of Lords”

My trust is that all who will read this post will hear God’s voice, hearken to his plea and obey the full counsel of his will.
How many can see the signs of the judgment and at the same time you can sense an explosion of the supernatural on the horizon that will show forth the manifold wisdom of his power in the earth? I would like to take this moment to caution you of the urgency of being sober minded and vigilant.
1 Thessalonians 5:6, 1 Peter 5:8. If there ever was a time that we need to stay before God’s presence and seek his face, it is NOW!
The church of the living God are the conduits that will channel God’s glory, authority and power in the earth. The kingdom of darkness is aware of a move that is about to be revealed; it will manifest on a level and magnitude that we have never witnessed before because the coming of the Lord is nigh. (He is at the door.)
I implore you to stay focused and in position, focused on the prize and high calling of God and positioned in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers of darkness. In other words, let us not become exhausted, sleepy and unconscious to what time it is according to bible prophecy. This dispensation of Grace, Colossians 1:25, is soon coming to a close and God is looking for a people that will hearken and move without hesitation. Obedience to the voice and instructions of God will keep us protected and inoculated from the plots, plans and attacks of the enemy. Though the weapons may form they will not prosper over those who obey his command. Isaiah 54:17
May I enlighten you by the Spirit of the living God that in this season the level of deception and divisiveness has heightened and increased to a degree beyond our ability to comprehend. Why? Because Satan knows he has but a short time. We see the massive deception being displayed in diverse disasters and destructions plaguing our homes, streets, schools, communities, cities and nation. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “if my people, which are called by name, would HUMBLE themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Are we willing to turn from our own self-centered, self-seeking, self-absorbed ways to see healing in our land?
The word of God says in 2 Timothy 4:3 that in the last days many will fall away from the faith, not necessarily from going to church but away from sound doctrine. Matthew 24:12b, “the love of many shall wax cold.” I have heard these passages of scripture in my hearing all my life and to literally see these things happening right before my eyes is astounding. Many seasoned, faithful men and women of God have lost their focus, passion, purpose and position. Believers are falling away from their commitment and true dedication to the gospel of Jesus Christ. So, as we can see, this spirit of deception is not partial in its operation in the world but also lurks to infiltrate in the body of Christ and capture as many minds of the saints as possible. Can God count on you to pray, intercede, lament, to cry out like never before that the hearts of his people will return back to their first love? As there is a return, the scales of deception will be removed off of the eyes that we may see the true light of the glorious gospel of truth.
The definition of Deception is the following: includes several types of communications or omissions that serve to distort or omit the complete truth. Deception itself is intentionally managing verbal and/or nonverbal messages so that the message receiver will believe in a way that the message sender knows is false. Intent is critical with regard to deception.
The way that we will escape this immense deception is to stay humble, broken and open before God. If we allow offense, un-forgiveness, criticism, pride, and judgment to enter our heart, we open ourselves up to be deceived and blinded to God’s truth which is his infallible word. It is hard for a deceived mind to embrace truth. We must put on the mind of Christ. Jesus says, "If you abide in My word, you are my disciples indeed.Picture And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." John 8: 31-32. If you want the solution to avoiding deception - seek the truth, love the truth, obey the truth, abide in truth. John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Outside of Christ’s principals and concepts, we will live in a form of godliness and deny the power thereof.
My Brothers and Sisters, it is crucial, crucial, crucial in this last day hour that we maintain a lifestyle of obedience and submission to the Holy Spirit and godly authority. We must allow ourselves to be vulnerable to the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of truth.
What causes us to move into deception is the characteristics of rebellion, pride, projecting on others, criticism, distortion and turning away from the truth. We must never forget that Satan is the master deceiver and he knows what bait to put before each of us so that we will bite.
Revelations 12:9-10 speaks of Satan being the deceiver of the whole world.
As we humble our hearts before God and return back to our first love, Revelations 2:4, 5, we will experience a growing appetite for the truth of God’s word and a mind that is sound and balanced in the justice and equity of God. No longer allow the crippling disease of deception to invade your soul & spirit. As you regain clear sight, insight, precision and spiritual discernment through the Holy Spirit’s working, stay saturated with prayer, godly mentorship for accountability, Quality time spent in the word of God and submission to your spiritual leaders and leadership. Rom. 13:1-7, Heb. 13:17, Eph 4:8-16, 1 Sam. 24th chapter. As we adhere to these instructions, our spiritual discernment will be sharpened, and then our instincts to judge will be crucified. We will ontake the heart of God. John 12:47. Our love will mature and become a...
