Father God wanted us to touch on two different topics. He said "Look at the train tracks" and He said "Look at the railroad." His judgment and wrath are coming against His enemies very soon. However, God is about to bless His Children with promotions, favor and blessings. The concern is keeping your train on the tracks so it won't derail AND removing people who don't have a ticket or rode with you in this last season but aren't really there for you. The other topic we want to cover is the railroad and what happens to all the trains in and out of the station.
If you've ever seen a railroad, then you know it's a busy place. Some trains are stationed there, in repair or taken out of service. Others are traveling to different destinations. They're loading passengers and their bags or unloading them. The workers are checking the tracks, changing tracks and checking the brakes. They're refueling and restocking supplies and equipment. Hence, it's a very busy place.
In our own lives, we have God who is running the station. He's watching out for who is feeling overwhelmed from the heavy spiritual attacks we went through last season. He's checking to see who needs time to rest or make repairs so they can get back on track. He's also monitoring who is traveling with us and might try to cause us to derail. There are some people who were with you last season that don't have a ticket this time. Hence, God is checking tickets and making sure there are no stowaways on board which we'll get into later on.
In this railroad station, God has to ensure that all the tracks are working properly, so to speak. Because we're in a NEW ERA, God is doing a Great Reset. Meaning trains are pulling in and preparing to head back out.
We're going into a Harvest season and many souls/lives will come to the Lord with the revival that's ahead. Hence, they need to move forward one track at a time and in the right direction with God ONLY as their conductor. Meaning, there are people who are about to receive promotions, move, get married, start new businesses and reunite with family. However, some are also separating from family and friends. Maybe they didn't have the person's best interest at heart and God is sending new people into their lives.
God wants to help us prepare to take in the new catch/harvest that's coming to the Kingdom. With this new harvest season, we will need partners to help us secure the catch (so our nets won't break) which we'll also explore.
Recall that a train travels on one track at a time, one after the next. All the tracks are set equally apart and in the same direction in order for the train to move forward. But what happens when the devil is trying to derail YOU?
The attacks have been so overwhelming for so many in this past season. Some might feel lost or overwhelmed by the stress. They're praying to God and asking for His mercy and waiting on signs from Him. Hence, it's a reminder to read your Bible every day and keep drawing close to God.
Father God is saying even right now, "Don't worry. Help IS coming." But, like that train, we must keep moving forward one track at a time. Remember, our help comes from the Lord so trust God and His timing.
A few things to help keep your train on its tracks:
Picture it. You're got your ticket. You're on the train and ready to leave the station. The train starts moving but then it stops suddenly. The conductor comes on board and starts checking tickets again! Turns out there was someone hiding out in the bathroom....a stowaway. I saw this happen once and the police took a man off the train in handcuffs. He was hiding in the bathroom! It's a reminder that what God has for you is yours and no one can take it, i.e., NO weapons formed against you shall prosper. And, God will remove those from your life who want to sabotage your future and His plans for you.
We included THIS powerful video above and the message below about what you need for this next journey to help ensure the enemy can't steal from you anymore AND what to do so your nets won't break THIS TIME. But again: Not everyone is coming with you on this new trip.
Your Nets Won't Break THIS TIME
We're taking this excerpt from Pastor Samuel Rodriguez at Dr. Bill Winston's 2021 IFC Conference. The Amos 9:13 blessing is coming and God's Word never fails. He's about to show up and show out. What you've been praying for, fasting for, forging for, it's already done. Remember Luke 1:37, nothing is impossible with God. He never failed Moses, Abraham, Joshua, Moses, Hannah or us. Our debts will end. Covid will end but God won't fail. However, to receive from God, don't grant everyone access to your net. In John 21:8, the disciples dragged their catch. They worked together. Hence, our season of broken nets is over. Let it go so you can receive ALL God has for you.
Things that used to break will NEVER break again but this time you need help. Again, remember John 21:8, the catch was so great they couldn't carry it themselves. Don't leave your catch behind or abandon it. This time we need to fulfill purpose with partnerships. We must learn how to partner...
As trains start leaving the railroad station, our Conductor God is asking "Are You Sure?" and He said as a reminder "Don't walk away from Me." These are reminders that we need God's covering in order to successfully move to the next level. To do that we must be covered and do everything in the name and blood of Jesus Christ and by God's authority. Hence, Jesus is the only way to the Father, i.e., you can't illegally board this train without a ticket.
God is asking "Are you sure?" Are you sure you're obeying God? Are you sure you're on the right side and hearing God? Are you sure your future is secure? Father God is saying "Don't walk away and make sure you obey." Please choose God and if you haven't done so already, please say the Repentance Prayer below. Choosing Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven because no one comes to the Father except through the Son. And, importantly, God is about to move. It might be suddenly/overnight. I'm hearing all kinds of things like "Tornado, evacuations, flooding." People think they have all this time but tomorrow is not guaranteed.
When something devastating, hurtful, and deep happens we blame God first, but God is here to help. For with God all things are possible. God is saying "I love all My children." Call on Him for what you need. With all kinds of pestilence, riots, violence, storms, famines, and rumors of wars, tomorrow is not guaranteed. Hence, now's the time to call on Jesus.
There are also some that think they can keep sinning and repenting, but that's wrong. God is not a turnstile. Hence, for Christians who have strayed, it's time to repent and don't walk away again as God is saying "They will regret their path if they walk away again."
Repentance Prayer / Sinners' Prayer
“Lord Jesus, I confess all my sins. I know you died on the cross for me. Please forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I turn my back on sin and I want to live a better life through You. Come into my heart and please give me Your Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost for help. I make You my Lord and Savior. Please give me eternal life through You, in Jesus's name, Amen.”
Rededicate Your Life to Christ Prayer
If you are saved but messed up, now is the time to get right with God. "Father God in Jesus name, I ask forgiveness of all my sins and I turn my back on sin. Please cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I will not walk away from You again and I will stay at the Cross. Please help me to overcome ---- [List any bad behaviors, sins and/or any addictions you struggle with] and I want to lead a better life through you, in Jesus's name, Amen."
Find a good church that offers Bible study classes and can help you receive the Spirit of Tongues.
Other helpful steps include to get baptized and read your Bible daily. Download helpful apps like Our Daily Bread which is odb.com and King James Bible (for daily devotionals). Order a print version of the Bible (King James Version). That way you don't always have to go online and you can write notes God wants you to add to it. You can also add an online Bible from sites like BibleStudyTools.com or BibleGateway.com to help you understand the scriptures. Read through Luke to hear Jesus's teachings. Other great books to start with include Matthew, Mark, and John. Chapters that can help with your daily walk include Psalm 1-3, 18, 27, 34, 55, and 91. Also read Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
Another tip that can help is to start listening to faith-based/Christian music. It often includes inspiring messages, scriptures and tips on how to draw closer to God. Father God has been saying "Keep singing to Me" and as we sing to God, He helps us overcome our circumstances. Our praise is a weapon that makes the enemy flee because praise and worship draw God closer to us. So, start reading your Bible and sing to Father God. Even if you can't carry a note, it's offering praise to Him and resting in Him. David also did this when he faced battles, giants and enemies in 1 and 2 Samuel. Hence, it's why we have so many Psalms in the Bible. It was David singing unto Father God!
Lastly, stay away from sin and temptation (your old sin triggers), and keep seeking God first. He will help you. You are redeemed (saved/spared) by Jesus's blood and more than a conqueror. God doesn't see your sin any longer. So, don't let anyone condemn you because of your past sins that God forgave. That's the devil trying to make you feel guilty. But, you're a new creation in Christ. Old things are passed away!
