* Note: when I write something that I believe I’m hearing from God, I’m trying to consistently put parenthesis around it. So if parenthesis pop up as if out of the blue in something I write somewhere on either of these blogs, this is probably why. And in most cases, I won’t explain why.
Often, when this happens, what I hear is much stronger and/or more direct, or even far different from what I would have said on my own.
And this isn’t super-freaky. This should happen to many of us. This is normal. These are just words I subtly hear that I know I’m not making up, and they make sense—which should always be the case if we’re not walking in willful sin, giving the demons a place.
Often, these phrases are conditional. Here, I would assume that those of us who ‘overcome’ (in the title, above) must be part of the ‘we’ — willing to walk in love, together — doing whatever it takes. ONE in Him, “life eternal”!!!
2 Timothy 3
1 But know this, that in the last days, grievous [‘perilous’ – KJV] times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; 5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied its power. …
10 But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, 11 persecutions, and sufferings: those things that happened to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I endured those persecutions. Out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. 15 From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus. 16 Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
