An Unrepentant God by Robert Blackburn

‎"The Gifts and Calling of God are without Repentance." I need to say something to some people. If you have truly been called and God has given you certain gifts, you are not going to rest. Try to get it through your mind and heart that it just doesn't matter what other people think on this subject. It's true and it's not going to change. You can run, hide, shake it off and even try to bury it. But it's not going to leave you alone. No matter where you go, even the other side of the world, it will follow you.

I read today again in the Book of Acts that David was a Prophet. A prophet that failed God terribly. But it did not change who he was or change the lineage of the Messiah. Somebody needs to think about that. God knew his heart. You see, the people who judge others who've failed just don't know that persons heart. Even when it's obvious that God has forgiven and sees his gifts still intact, the ones He himself put there, many don't accept, trust or believe in that person. There is something that nudges at the edge of our thinking that there are many things which God ordained, long even before some of us were even born. We like to quote and speak about how God saw down through the ages etc. and called things that be not as though they were. But we have trouble with this topic. It's because it doesn't fit our theology and we have placed ourselves between that person and God to say what the Creator can and can not do. I must tell some of you that it is too bad what other people think but you have to listen. Save yourself a world of heartache and bumps is this life by surrendering to your calling. God did not give you Gifts for you to decide you didn't want them or need them anymore. Whatever your mistake or mishap, confess it, clean it up, forgive yourself and get on with what you're supposed to be doing. Let God handle the naysayers and scoffers.

If this is the end time, and it is, there is a stirring in the hearts and spirits of those who want to be in tune with what the Spirit intends to do. An unrest, if you please. God needs vessels. And those vessels who truly have the heart to do the work as the Spirit leads, feel this disturbance, this moving of the waters and I have to tell you something. You're not going to be able to ignore it or explain it away. God knows what you're made of. He ought to. He put it there. Please, we have to get our minds off of the unforgiving attitude of those around us and put our sights and minds on the forgiving heart of God. These people are not in control of your life. If you've asked God to be in control, He is. If you love Him and are seeking to move up and do whatever you can to live right and help someone else, God sees that. He does not see what the others see. Why should He. He put a lot of work in you and what those people think hasn't stopped Him or bothered Him much ever. It's not their calling and it's not their gifts. Let them quote scriptures and judge til they drop but it is not going to change what God set in motion. WE have got to get our minds on what He can do, not what they might do. God didn't call them to do your work, He called you. Jesus said, "You didn't choose me. I chose you." Forget them. Pray for them as much as you can but get your eyes on the right One. I tried to forget this message a long time ago. It still doesn't work. The Holy Ghost is going to quicken the bruised, battered, tired and even forgotten vessels. It's been His intent all along.
