The chariots, which you rely and put your faith in, are destroyed; and a twofold debt will I require of you. Nebraska, I endowed you with the desire and ability to preserve My apostolic Justice, understanding to perform My righteous pastoral correction, and Grace of My Spirit to rule your spiritual children well in carefulness. However, you are a pursed lipped mother and a stiff-necked father with Jebusite hands that go the way of Cain and rejects My Perfect Peace. I watched you spurn My beloved and give His feet no rest. I watched you withhold My diligent governing after I fervently governed and cared over you. As you have rejected Me when I came to you in weakness, I reject you in your pride of human strength. Those in you, Nebraska, who will move to Me and seek My face, speak to Me. I have Time and Room for you. Thus saith the LORD who knows the hearts of men.

More Words to Nebraska
October 28, 2019

It is important to look into the distance. When we have a view to look out to, it is easier to look inward. Nebraska gives itself to man to do this and invites us, when it is willing, to stand, sit, or move on its cloth of subtlety. Yes, Nebraska does have interesting rock formations, some waterfalls, lakes and rivers, Platte River and Missouri River, lots of beautiful prairies, and extensive agricultural land. But what Nebraska is ordained by God with is not that we are taken in by it, but to be a place, a port, that we can be aware of ourselves and identified in. Solitude and remoteness, not like the deserts, not like the high rugged mountains, and not like large bodies of water, is the backdrop to contemplate. Nebraska tells our spirit and our mind to stop. May we regard the work of the LORD and the operations of His hands (Psalm 28:5) in Nebraska.

Partial debt paid

2 Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day. 3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin. (Jeremiah 36:2-3)

Some in Nebraska heard and received the words of prophetic judgements that were spoken against it, which is why the line has been drawn over NE as no longer being a quencher state listed on the Higgaion Postings page. Judgements have been declared and acted upon enough for the Holy Spirit to move and operate in. The barking pet shepherds (corrupt pastors) who have led their flocks astray have been judged and killed in its streets. However, Nebraska still has further to go. It now needs to remove its teachings of both the catholic and protestant sects that have subdued and bound it. The commands of Zechariah 7:9 will stay fixed as God desires Nebraska to operate fully in the call that He has given it: preserving His apostolic Justice, performing His righteous pastoral correction, and ruling spiritual children well in carefulness.

9 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: (Zechariah 7:9)

Once Nebraska has grown into its call, which is operating in the above and can only be done through Jesus Christ, the purpose and work of the Holy Spirit for, in, and from Nebraska will be able to thrive. May Nebraska continue to purge itself from the corrupt pastoral teachings as the back of the pastoral ministry has been broken there. May you now disregard the teachings and operations of your past spiritual mothers and fathers who quenched the Holy Spirit. The Avett Brothers’ anointed song “Laundry Room” from their “I and Love and You” album (2009) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IthXOVp-K5I beseeches us to “break this tired old routine.”

Meditation, reading, and pouring Psalm 107 over ourselves and over the state of Nebraska will unbind and unravel what the enemy of God’s people has bound them with. After the first couple of reads, it appears to be a lot of delivering by God, His people being in affliction, His people crying for help, and being delivered again. Like the same “tired old routine” that the corrupt religious systems live in and teach of “backsliding” then asking for forgiveness, then being delivered like living on a hamster exercise wheel. But do not stop, keep reading Psalm 107. Read it according to the Ways of God. You will start to see spiritual stages of growth that we go through, which become more difficult, yet more rewarding. The first cycle that the stagnate churches stay in and never progress out of is described in verses 1–7. As we allow ourselves to be Judged in God’s Justice and purified by God, our surroundings start to reflect it. With each stage, more extensive and far-reaching judgements are placed not only within us but in our surroundings until the final crescendo comes with iniquity being removed from our mouths as we begin to see and understand God's purifying process to remove unrighteousness. A complete flip, reversal, inverse relationship outcome then takes place. We are able to praise Him and give thanks to Him for His goodness and wonderful works to the children of men.

Psalm 107

1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south [sea]. 4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. 5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. 7 And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! 9 For He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. 10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; 11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: 12 Therefore He brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. 13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
15 Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! 16 For He hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. 17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. 18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. 19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saveth them out of their distresses. 20 He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! 22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with rejoicing [singing]. 23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; 24 These see the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep. 25 For He commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. 26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. 27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. 28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and He bringeth them out of their distresses. 29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. 30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so He bringeth them unto their desired haven.
31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! 32 Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, and praise Him in the assembly of the elders. 33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; 34 A fruitful land into barrenness [saltness], for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. 35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. 36 And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; 37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. 38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease. 39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow. 40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the void place, where there is no way. 41 Yet setteth He the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock. 42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. 43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.

Hand delivery

Nebraska’s atmosphere, regardless of rock, grasslands, waters, or even the towns and cities, conveys messages of and from God. And those messages are personal. Nebraska is given this important anointing to operate in. And it is because of this important gift and anointing that Nebraska is worth fighting for. There have been a few and more to come within her who heed to the voice of God to deliver His personal messages. Some have been willing to travel distances to deliver the messages of great substance that they first received in Nebraska to give to another. Even if a person decides that they will rush through to get to their destination, they will take a message or even give a message unknowingly because they have entered and left the seaport of Nebraska. May those who live in Nebraska fully partake in the anointing that God has given them. May Nebraska be aware of its presence that gives man a place to hear God, and where messages of prophetic purpose can be relayed within, across, and beyond her.

25 As cold [cool] waters to a thirsty [weary] soul, so is good news from a far country. (Proverbs 25:25)

The nature of God’s availability

There are many verses that are pulled out and posted on calendars or cards that are used to remind us that God cares for us. But they are hints of suggestion more often than not. They are used as daily espresso shots that keep things going for a while. However, when God presents Himself available to us, it changes us. The Holy Spirit becomes our reminder that God cares and that He is with us because His Words are etched into our heart. And we return this awareness with greater trust in Him. When God gives Himself, He does so as though He is at a desk and clears it off with one arm stroke. He stops and makes room. He makes it clear to us that He is not multi-tasking when He extends His energy and attention to us. He is available. He is fully engaged. And because of this, we trust Him more. Some people have this gift and operate in it with ease. It is the ability to make room, make time, and to do so without restriction. Everything else is pushed aside for listening and hearing us. Nebraska has this gift. It is not restricted to keeping time because it has the power to control time. May Nebraska come into its fullness to utilize this power to bring others messages that are specifically written to them from God. They are a port that is large where no message will be lost. May Nebraska fully turn into and take command of its call. For those within Nebraska who have heeded to You already Father, we thank you for them. Thank you for Nebraska.

8 Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. (Psalm 62:8)

I have time for you. God is saying, “I have time for you.” Yes, I see you, I hear you. I have time for you. When He tells us this, we never forget it. He addresses us with our name attached to the words: “Sara, I have time for you.” This is just one of the personal messages that Nebraska has the ability to hold for us until the time comes for us to receive it. It may be during trouble, it may be when we are lost, or it may come to us just because we are silent before Him and He desires to give of Himself to us. We are hard pressed to know of a deeper comfort than those words from Him. I have time for you.

“Trouble Me” written by Natalie Merchant and Dennis Drew, performed by 10,000 Maniacs from their 1989 album “Blind Man’s Zoo”, allows us to perceive the presence of our Father’s availability. The last line is, “Trust is what I’m offering… if you trouble me.” May we trust Him more fully. May we hear Him say, “I have time for you.” And Father, as we have received from You, may we offer the same that I too have time and room for You, and that I too have time for my brethren.
