Stay Alert-God of Glory Thunders

(Note* - This article was in the queue since the 21st (May 2020 - four days ago) and I forgot to hit “publish”, so it's up today, the 25th. Sigh – BP 2020)
A Beckoning

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall have everlasting life. [Jn 3:16]

That has to be one of the most popular verses in the Bible, and the first one that most people learn. The first one I learned for whatever reason is Romans 8:28, about howall things work together for good, to those who love God and are the called, according to His purpose.

Jesus (Yeshua), who is the Son of God and also the Word of God that came in the flesh (and who comes (enters in) when one is born-again), and Creator of all things in the heavens and in and upon the earth, is making it well known in these dark, uncertain days that He is calling out to people all over the world.

He is calling the lost, the wayward and the prodigals, but He is also calling those who are already His sheep, the ekklesia (church, disciples).

This is a time like no other time, and that which is coming (great tribulation) will be like that which has not been since the beginning of the world nor ever shall be. [Mat 24:21] Those are the words of Jesus when asked what would be the sign of His return, and the end of the age.  

He is beckoning from His love for mankind, tenderly calling in ways that only He can do. Yet, even still, an alarm has sounded (spiritually). There is an urgent warning about the truth of great tribulation that is coming upon the whole earth, being just over the horizon.

Simultaneously is a firm call to repentance for anything any us may need to turn away from that is not of God. YHVH is the God of truth and His Spirit is truth. Beyond any shadow of doubt that His Son, Jesus (Yeshua) is the way, the truth and life, and no one comes to the Father but by Him. [Jn 14:6]

And even with truthful (albeit mostly unwanted) warnings (also spoken out of love), the words of Christ Jesus are still profoundly covered with understanding and compassion, a tenderness that offers hope, mercy and grace. But the time of justice and judgment is here; the gavel is raised.

"Come unto me, you who are weary and heavy-laden..." (troubled by cares of this world; at the end of your rope, shame or guilt-ridden, yet not willing to let go of hope, but nowhere to turn, no one to fully understand).

Comeand I will give you REST." [Mat 11:28] "Turn to Me. I understand and know you better than you know yourself." (Messiah whispers).

Yes, God calls; He beckons...He forces no one – it is personal choice, but He has given us a ‘head start’, in a manner of speaking. He is the author of faith.

Looking unto Jesus (Yeshua), the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy (salvation of mankind) that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. [Heb 12:2]

Open Arms – Now is the Time
He will welcome you and prove himself to be the Saviour, the Christ/Messiah (Anointed One) who willingly and gladly gave his life for all who would believe and receive, so that mankind would have a way to be reconciled with God.

He has extraordinary creative ways to answer even those who shout out, "God, prove to me you are real!" How can I say that so confidently? Two reasons - at one time, I was the fool who shouted (literally), "There is no God!"

Secondly (several years down the road), I was the lost and doubtful, the one who said, "God, are you real? If so, show me." He did, and I am forever changed. Praise and glory to God alone!
He quickly grants forgiveness of sins to the repentant soul who believes enough, a fragment of hope, to cry out to Him. He needs to prove nothing to any of us because He already proved himself upon a rugged cross. 

Even still, proof of forgiveness seems attached to the fact that once we are forgiven, we immediately comprehend that there has been a sudden lifting of a heavy burden. It is a knowing, more than a feeling, although joy often does accompany the release. Our spirit comes alive. 

The lifting off brings relief, freedom and rejoicing...a new beginning, born-again. In Messiah (Jesus the Christ), there is renewed hope and eternal life. It is offered freely - the gift of salvation.

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. 
[Eph 2:8, 9]

How excellent is your lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings. [Ps 36:10]

Love Forewarns and the Warning is a STRONG One

And the strong warning given...what is that all about? Time! We are running out of time before the great tribulation hits. Jesus is warning all people to come to Him now. Things are broken; people need fixing...time is running out!

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. [1Jn 1:8-10]

For all have sinned and all short of the glory of God. [Rom 3:23]

How can you be sure Jesus (Yeshua) will accept you when you turn to Him?

All that the Father gives me shall come to Me; and him that comes to me, I will in no way cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will off Him that sent Me. [Jn 6:37, 38]

Things have changed globally...every country is in lockdown and living in uncertain times. People are waiting for governments to lift restrictions, so things can go back to some kind of normalcy.

But are we listening; do we hear? Five months into 2020 (May) and already the programming has begun, as over and over we are told that this is the "new normal" and people everywhere have seemingly accepted aand parrot it.

Controlling the Masses
As for masks, many do wear them, but not all. I have not seen police or emergency crews wearing them (at least, not when I am out and about). Some public transportation drivers (bus, taxi) do. It seems to be up to each individual here in this small town.

I’ve seen pictures taken in various cities globally where the masses are wearing masks. There is conflicting information about the need for masks. Interestingly, Agenda 201 (actually, Agenda ‘21’), planned for such confusion and how the internet and social media platforms may need to be controlled.

There is a push for a cashless society. Where I live (Okanagan BC), there are already several places with signs up, accepting debit and credit cards only OR saying they preferno cash and thanks for understanding”…all in the name of safety.

Well there are those who understand alright. There are markers on sidewalks outside mall stores and on the inside of every store and establishment to keep people 2 meters (6 feet) apart – social distancing.

Some aisles are blocked and all aisles have arrows for one-way (people) traffic only. Certain items of food are rationed (limited). In bigger stores, employees direct customers in a “maze-like” path to get to the cash registers.

Some places ask customers to wash their hands with the sanitizer they provide. Then, they are directed to shopping carts that have been “sterilized”.

Security guards are all throughout town and are positioned outside or inside of nearly every establishment. Some patrol the streets. Restrictions are not yet lifted, but more people are going out now than they were a week or two ago.

Some businesses are slowly re-opening, but not the churches, gyms, public swimming pools etc. We are being controlled (likely a trial run) in many ways; how we shop, when to wash hands, how much we can buy (some limiting), how we pay, even how we move about in the stores...being directed like a herd of sheep

Satan, the 'god' of this world, the counterfeiter, mimics Yeshua, the Good Shepherd, by endeavouring to make mankind "his" flock, doing all he can to steal (kill and destroy).

Warning of Evil and a Spirit of Slumber
The Lord God sounded an alarm to wake people up back in December 2019, and October 2019...a warning about a “spirit of slumber” and a call to awake and arise…also, a sense of foreboding (December).

There was a warning of witchcraft (early-mid October 2019). Witchcraft is multilayered. The Exhaustive Concordances (NAS; Strong's; Thayer's) give meaning.

The given meaning of witchcraft, sorceries in the Bible:

NASB Translation
Word Origin: from pharmakeuo - to administer drugs; 
Definition: the use of medicine, drugs or spells; 

Thayer's Greek Lexicon

Strongs NT 5331
: pharmakeia (transliteration from Greek) Gal 5:20

Definition: the use of medicine, drugs or spells; the use or administering of drugs; poisoning, sorcery,, magical arts - often found in connection with idolatry (Ex 7:22; Is 47:9; Gal 5:20)

Usage: magic, sorcery, enchantment; tropically, of the deceptions and sorceries (Rev 18:23)

HELPS Word-studies

5331: pharmakeia (from pharmakeuo, "administer drugs") - hence pharmacy;
properly, drug-related sorcery 

Have you noticed how countries are almost tripping over each other, with urgency, trying to come up with a vaccine for covid-19? (US, Canada, UK, Italy, Israel, Russia, Australia, et al). Where was the urgency for SARS, called the first pandemic of the 2000s?

When a vaccine is found, there is a push (Gates, Fauci, et al) to force the vaccine on "everyone" globally, by making it mandatory; forcing people to have "digital ID" (at the very least...a certificate) as "proof" of being vaccinated.

Serious consideration and talk of checkpoints (Dr. Teresa Tam - Chief Public Health Officer, Canada -- 2010) guarded by authorities to 'scan' for proof of vaccintation. There is no order in place "yet" for mandatory vaccines (there's a divide in the agreement of it), and cash is still being used, but imagine, no cash, forced vaccines, protocols on "safe distancing" so another wave of Covid19 wont hit or recur. 

We are heading toward the fifth month of this lockdown. FIVE months of being kept isolated, at a distance from others, "cleanliness" strongly advised, no live entertainment (concerts, dancing, theater, sports etc), no large gatherings (churches, parks, beaches, bars, sports events etc), only limited small groups (minimum 2 (or family that lives together), up to 10 or so, depending on government's decision. Do you feel controlled? Do you smell a rat?

There is a silent sound that has rippled across the lands and across the nations of the world. Many people have woken up; others are beginning to. Others still have risen up; prepared. Many are beginning to question what is happening.

There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. This is the time to speak! With all the ways people can obtain information through technology these days, it is well known by now (May 2020) that the year 2020 is the year 5780 on the Hebrew calendar.

Briefly said, gematria is an alphanumeric code which assigns a numerical value to letters. It's more in-depth, but that is not my intent. There are plenty of good articles and books in libraries or on the net about the Hebrew calendar, etc.

Take the Breath Away

That being said, (5780 - now entered into the decade of the 80s on the Hebrew calendar) the number 80 is represented by the letter Pe ( פ ) (pei - Pey), which means "mouth". 

The mouth is the expression of breath; God breathed into Adam's mouth and he came alive. Remember this point
I will connect the above statement to what is going on throughout the globe today, in all nations, amongst the people in every country.

Likely with a gasp, Adam's body began to automatically inhale and exhale, supplying oxygen to his heart, blood, organs and all that is in the body...and Adam came alive. Adam was GIVEN the very BREATH of God, our Maker (Creator)!

What do H1N1 (Swine Flu), SARS, Sars CoV-2 and Covid-19 all have in common? They all affect the lungs and BREATHing, and threaten to TAKE lives. H1N1 was reported as having broken out in the United States, but was later changed to Veracruz, Mexico.

The SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) breakout came out before that in 2002-04. The very name warns you that it hit the lungs and breath was taken. The first outbreak was in Foshan, Guangdong, China. The NLM and NIH government site titles it “SARS, the First Pandemic of 21st century”.

 H1N1 (2009) was also called the first influenza “pandemic” of the 21st century, according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) government site (see 4th line down at link). Even on the CDC government site, the write-up on H1N1 is called a pandemic. Why was the entire globe not put in lockdown back then, in 2009?

MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome - coronavirus) 2012 caused the development of severe respiratory problems (lungs shut down) causing death. According to CDC, 3 – 4 out of every 10 patients. Saudi Arabia was said to have the first case, but it was later changed to Jordan.

Why was there no lockdown ordered for SARS (considered the 1st pandemic of 21st century, or H1N1 (which somehow was also called the 1st pandemic of this century)? We were told these spread fast quickly also, yet now with Covid-19 demands a lockidown. According to one report, SARS and MERS had more deaths than Covid19 has had so far.  ABC NEWS - US

This report states that 289,000 deaths occurred with H1N1, and to date 127,000 deaths with Covid-19. These are GLOBAL death counts. Yet, there was no lockdown with H1N1. It is stated that Covid-19 is the only epidemic/pandemic that has brought social and economic devastation. news

 Right...and the ONLY one that brought lockdown, shuttering all businesses considered "non-essential" and limiting or shutting down all social functions. 

Covid-19 (SARS CoV-2) is a disease caused by the SARS-2 coronavirus. It began in China (Wuhan) and spread globally. A pandemic was called and for the first time in history the entire globe (every country) went into lockdown. It also affects the lungs, causing pneumonia, where the elderly and those with compromised systems are at risk of death.

It seems that the shutting down of lungs takes the breath away. Would it not be just like Satan to take from mankind what God gave usBREATH - LIFE?

I believe that this last coronavirus has been manipulated to take down mankind, by making it yet another virus that affects lungs and breathing. However, it is not quite as deadly as it was first projected as.

It is very likely this is a trial run, and a 'deadlier' virus will be released. More people will die because they will think that it will be just like Covid19, but it will spread faster and be much deadlier. Lockdowns will be enforced by martial law, vaccines mandatory, digital ID mandatory, no cash, cards only, scans, contact tracing, surveillance, "Judas'" rewarded for turning in any "opposed" to orders.

God breathed in to man and man came alive. Satan and his agents (earthly and spiritual) are not God, but 'invent' somthing that will take breath out of man and man dies. It is a war...and it is about to heat up.

Oh and in some places, drones have been used to observe people out shopping or whatever. Also robots have been used in other places. We have not seen anything yet compared to what is coming. 

I intend to re-read parts of the Bible and ask God to help me see what He is saying for today and what is really coming. The prophets and apostles could only describe things the best they could from what they knew. There are times that our own dreams and visions are difficult to describe, so how difficult would it have been for our forerunners to try and describe technology and other things they were seeing in visions and dreams, and by the holy angels?

Where is the Love?
There are some in influential positions within the Christian community who will not use words like 'sin, sinners, repent, repentance, cross' because they "love" the people too much, and will not condemn them with such "religious words".

As I have often said, there is a difference between condemnation and conviction. The former ladens a person with shame and guilt and offers no hope, only harsh judgment. They could be remorseful but not repent, like Judas Iscariot. His guilt and remorse led him to commit suicide.

The latter (conviction) brings sorrow and a brokenness over sins. It offers hope through Jesus Christ, with the remorse leading to repentance and forgiveness. No one has ever loved people more than Jesus Christ, who gave his very life up for the forgiveness of sins. His words, called "religious" by some, were spoken out of love.

The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
[Mat 4:16, 17]

Then Jesus said unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. [Mat 16:24]

So yes, love, agape love, the love of God through Jesus will speak of sins, repentance and the cross. Jesus is the truth, God of truth, Spirit of truth. As his disciples, we too must speak truth, even hard truths, for the sake of salvation and being reunited with God, through His Son, Christ Jesus (Yeshua).

But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death
[Rev 21:8]

Seek the Lord while he may be found, all upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon[Is 55:6, 7]

Yes, there is a beckoning going forth to the lost, the wayward, the prodigals..."come unto Me...and I will give you rest".

God Calls to Saints, Draw Near
Simultaneously, Jesus (Yeshua), our first love, is calling the saints, His beloved children of light, to draw near, humbly entering into his holy presence, and spending time with him.

And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all (holy of Holies) [Heb 9:3]

His love will completely envelope you, and you will feel safe under the shadow of his wings (like a chick does under the wings of the hen). 
[Lk 13:34]

Call to me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.
[Jer 33:3]

It is not about feelings, which are ever-changing. Yet in the secret chambers of the heart and soul, there will be a deepening of love, an unbreakable intimacy. We dwell in him and He in us. The more we get to know Him, the more we hunger and thirst for Him.

O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 
[Ps 63:1]

The closer we are to Him, the more we realize how desperately we need him. We finally find where we belonged all along...and we shouldn't want it any other way. Eternity with our Creator – it will soon be a reality. Christ is returning!

Know that the Lord he is God: it is he that has made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. [Ps 100:3, 4]

In His presence will come a fresh infilling of His precious and Holy Spirit, for He is the oil for our lamps. Jesus strengthens, comforts, and gives that unexplainable peace that passes all understanding.

He is urging his people to draw nearer; He will bring us closer and higher. There are things He will tell us, matters that are individual and other matters that are corporate...this is the time. 

He is Faithful and True [Rev 19:11] But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all your works.[Ps 73:28] 

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. [Heb 10:22]

He lifts up the humble, gives honour where there was once shame; hope where there was once despair; peace where there was once turmoil; joy where there was once tears. [
see Is 61:1-3]

The time is now, wise virgins, for the midnight hour is soon upon us. We know not when the Bridegroom will arrive, so we must be prepared, for if his arrival is during the darkness, we will have enough oil in the lamps, to see clearly as we go out amidst the darkness to meet Him.

In His timing and in His creative ways, He will speak (in His Word and by His Spirit), through others; any way He so chooses. Spend that quiet time with Him in prayer, and He will see you through these days of darkness. 

It can be tough, even unbearable at times when sudden tragedy or calamity strikes us out of nowhere, suddenly and unexpectly, a painful, heart-wretching trial. It may seem never-ending. God's silence may seem final but it is not. He is right there but mostly we are unaware at the time.

You can do it. You persevered this far. Keep praying, that is, keep pouring your heart out. He can handle it and He understands...we don't. So, in these dark unpredictable days, He desires to prepare us so that we are not caught off-guard when the swirling confusion and dizzying chaos increases

He wants to direct us, but it means being still and waiting in His presence long enough to hear what He will speak into your spirit man, and he will great is His love. Be still -

Jesus the Messiah of Nazareth is the Key

Many, but not all people sense the uncertainty and the foreboding. Even though these days are dark, grosser darkness is coming, as it is written. The dragon is near; the beasts are arising! God's word will be and is being fulfilled. 

So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth:it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing where I sent it. [Is 55:11]

Many of God’s faithful people have been going through vicious trials; unexpected tribulations and attacks from the enemy. The closer the walk with Jesus, the more violent and relentless the enemy is.

It is different for each one, but it is like the apostle Peter said when he told us to not be surprised or think it’s strange because we are going to understand Christ’s suffering more,

Even when the adversary fiercely attacks body, mind and/or soul, Jesus will help His sheep through all things because greater is He that is in [them] than he that is in the world. [1Jn4:4]

Those who are walking close to him see quite clearly how close the world is to entering into the great tribulation and the soon-return of our Saviour and Christ Jesus (Messiah Yeshua) because the Holy Spirit leads God's people into all truth. Even those in the secular are sensing the foreboding, something evil coming.

Everything is coming into alignment, according to the Word of God, and His will. Continue to watch and pray. Pray for all that we are led to pray for; pray for one another, pray for our land, the nations and its people. 

No matter how brave and courageous we think we are I truly cannot see anyone going through what’s coming without the Lord to help. This is the time to pray! This is the time to trust and follow his instructions (obedience is crucial). 

Stand in the gap for family, friends, whosoever, especially when you see no one else standing in the gap. 

And I sought for a man among them that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. [Ezek 22:30]

This is the time to believe God for the impossible. Destinies are will be fulfilled to the obedient as He leads, and in His way and timing. Yes, for such a time as this...and even though those words are heard repeatedly these days (even by cults), they still remain true words. We are alive today for a reason and for a purpose - Jesus' reason and purpose. 

Glory to God alone! It's not the time to give up!

Watchmen, Stay Awake and Alert
Warning is our responsibility. The watchmen want no blood on their hands, so they must warn when they see an enemy approaching, when they see the sword coming across the land. 

Yes, warn, but be prepared to be met with great resistance, sudden rejection, perhaps disgust or hatred, even from some who call themselves Christians. None of us look forward to the horrific times just over the horizon; and truth be told, likely none of us really wants to hear of what is coming. We all want life to go on as comfortable as possible, but it shall only worsen…so it is written.
Yet with the warning, share the gospel of the good news of Jesus Christ and the hope and salvation that is in and by Him. Speak His love and faithfulness, His healings and miracles, but mostly, the finished work of the cross and all that He has accomplished.

Order Out of Chaos

The first domino has been pushed by man indeed. Strategic planning and a timely agenda now has every country globally in control of the people, telling us what we can and cannot do, all in the name of 'safety' against the pandemic, COVID-19.

The lockdown keeps being extended in many places, as threats of a "second wave" are sounding throughout the world, just as the Lord forewarned a couple of months back. Simultaneously, there are several places in various countries that are opening up, returning to a form of normalcy. 

What are people to believe, and why the conflicting actions being carried out, causing confusion, anger and even protests and civil disobedience?  (Sorry, it is difficult sometimes to find websites that are not loaded down with tons of ads.)

Lawlessness is beginning to ripple heavily in areas. Chaos is becoming more pronounced. Spain, Berlin, UK, Ontario are just some of the places that protesters are rising up who are anti-lockdown. Even civil unrest was in the Agenda 21 (and other) plans.

Despite man's intent, the Lord has placed a [temporary] "stick in the gears". In His love, he beckons the lost to come to him, and He calls out to his saints to draw closer to Him, and deepen our intimacy, our connection. 

Yet another urgent call goes out from Christ, who is gracious and merciful, for he is not willing that any should perish, but for all to come to repentance [
2Pet 3:9] Sadly, not all will...

He is holding back the next strike of the first domino because once it is released, once the "proverbial 
stick is removed", things will pile up one on top of another, increasing fear, panic, anger and chaos. 

With the removing of the "stick", things will begin to occur at a pace that will start slowly, but will pick up momentum to such a speed that only Jesus can intervene and stop it.

Whether pestilence, geophysical events, civil and/or global wars, or celestial events: each will bring great destruction and death, followed by actions that further manipulate and control the people. Aye, and rebellion is nigh unto witchcraft, yet the world still rebels against a holy God.

Things will become so chaotic and so frightening that world leaders will be in dire straits. Thus the stage is then set for the "one" (Antichrist) who can establish [temporary] 'peace" (3 1/2 years), bringing order out of chaos.

His charisma and clever flatteries, wisdom, power and impressive "miracles, signs and wonders" will be applauded and worshipped at first, until deception can no longer be cloaked, and is exposed. So it is written (Bible), so it shall be.

The clash of the kingdoms began long ago, but now increases in these final last days, and the battles the saints are enduring in faith are a fierce reality. Know and understand that Jesus (Yeshua) is LORD of the battle, the righteous and just King, whose holy warrior angels are battling on behalf of multitudes of saints.

For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire. [Is 9:5]

Yet even still, in a world of several billion people, the multitude of faithful saints being millions is still only a remnant...

Controlling the Masses
Confusion and fear encompass the world, with every country on lockdowns, and under restrictions. Imagine...the entire population on earth is now quarantined or isolated, restricted by policies and regulations and under control by individual governments, threatened to be "disciplined" either by fines or jail for non-compliance.

Phone lines are available in many places so that people can "snitch" (report someone) to authorities, if they think someone is being non-compliant to the government's restrictions and regulations.

Some offer reward, and like Judas, an incredible number of people are accepting the "reward". Such behaviour will only increase.

There is a very real adversary, Satan, who hates all of mankind, but particularly Christians, the faithful and dedicated sheep of Jesus Christ. The enemy has countless agents, both in the natural and in the spiritual, who do his bidding in attempts to steal, kill and destroy faith, destinies and hope. But 
greater is He than is in you than he that is in the world [1Jn 4:4], and if God be for you, who can be against? [Rom 8:31]

Being submitted to the Lord is wisdom, and humbly waiting on Him. He will direct each one of us. Great is His love and faithfulness. Humility comes before honour.

In time with Him, the craziness of the present world begins to be blocked out, until the peace that passes all understanding envelopes us. If you’re in a extremely trying place right now, don’t give up, but press into the only One who can help and wants to help.

Many of God’s precious sheep have not let go of God's personal promise for the "impossible” to happen, having faithfully trusted Him through a long wait and unbearable testing (even if at times it was by a thread, or mustard seed). He will not disappoint. Those who wait upon the Lord shall not be put to shame. [Ps 25:3

It's the last hour that is the hardest. That is the point in which many give up. How do I know? That’s where I am at right now…it’s a push. It really is like a woman in labour, just as the Word of God says.

God's will be done. Persevere; hold fast to Jesus. He stays with us, even carrying us, if necessary, until we are strong enough to rise again and endure.  Meanwhile, His angels battle on our behalf and He is the LORD of the battle. We can be confident in all He tells us.

We read about the ancient forerunners, who are our examples, yet do we fully grasp the difficulty, the mind-boggling courage, the unshakable faith and trust that had to be exercised, as one goes through the hardest, unimaginable and humiliating trials of a lifetime?

We read of unimaginable trials of faith and trust in God, when His people were plunged into some kind of hard test. How many witnessed everything worsening, going in the exact opposite direction of what they trusted God for?

The Last Hour Seems Longest

It is one thing to read about a horrific trial and quite another to actually live it. Imagine being thrown into a den of lions for praying to God, when an order went out across the land not to bow to anyone except the king (leader of your country). King Darius' governors, princes, captains, sheriffs and counsellors tricked the king into signing a decree (order).

They despised Daniel and were jealous of his wisdom, humility and integrity. They knew Daniel would remain true to God. The king grieved when the report came in that Daniel had disobeyed the order because he favoured him. 
Yet, an order was an order. We now know what it is like when an order goes out to everyone across the land by the leader of the country. We have to obey or face the consequences. The whole world is under orders, in this lockdown.

The decree was signed.The king had no choice but to command Daniel be thrown to the lions. What if that were you? Hungry lions will tear a person apart instantly, and when people were sentenced to be thrown into the den, it would be done when the lions hungered.

Daniel was unharmed by the lions. He told the king that God had sent an angel to shut the lions' mouths, but did Daniel actually see the angel, or did he believe that was the explanation for the lions not attacking him?

In the other scriptures we read that whenever Daniel saw an angel, he conversed with them. There was no conversation recorded as happening in the lion's den between any angel and Daniel. But knowing the holy angels are at the command of the God of Israel and knowing His goodness, did Daniel simply know in his heart that God helped him through that very dark and trying time?
The last hour that Daniel had to sit before the lions must have been extremely stressful; Daniel continued in prayer and hope. The lions were likely pacing back and forth by morning, hungry. What if Daniel couldn't see the angel. 

Obviously the angel was not holding the mouth of every lion shut physically, unless of course he had arms like an octopus, which could very well be possible. Look at the description of some angels...six wings, faces of animals and man, so yes, all things are possible.

But on a more serious note, Daniel's trust and faith in God was tested to the max. I could not imagine facing one hungry lion, never mind a den full. It probably seemed like that last hour would never pass. Daniel kept praying. 

He was a real person, like you and me. He fought fear and doubt. He likely did much talking to himself and God. He held on because just like us sometimes,he had no choice in the matter; he was helpless, entirely at God's mercy.

Finally, the last hour did pass and Daniel was released, much to the joy of the king Darius. [Dan 6:22, 23]

What about the three Hebrews that would not bow down to Nebuchadnezzar's image (statue) and were thrown into the furnace heated up seven times hotter than usual. The heat of it was so intense it killed the soldiers that took the three men to the fire.
Did they see the fourth man in the fire (whether an angel or Jesus)? Could Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego see the fourth person through the fire, and if they could, could they hear anything spoken above the roar of the flames? The last hour they were in that furnace must have seemed never-ending. 

How long, o Lord? When? How long must we endure this to prove our trust in you and our love, precious Lord? They could not get out of the fire soon enough...but they had to wait on God. 

True, like Daniel, they were helpless to change the situation but they had already pre-determined that either God would save them or He would not. However, no matter what, they would not bow to another God. They persevered; they endured; they got through the trial and passed the test.
The last hour we go through a hard trial is intense. We want out, but we are helpless to do so. That is when we have to choose. Do we have the faith and trust strong enough to believe that God will see us through the trial to victory, or will He leave us there to perish? 

He never leaves us, and He takes no pleasure in our suffering. But we do not see the purpose or reason behind a thing. In Daniel's case, the king commanded that all the men who accused Daniel to be thrown into the lion's den, along with their wives and children.The lions tore them all apart before they even hit the bottom of the pit. [Dan 6:24] 

All the people in the land were then ordered by King Darius' decree to worship the God of Daniel. In the decree, the king said of the God of Israel:

He delivers and rescues, and He works signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. [Dan 6:27]

The same God is with us through our dark trials, when we are helpless to change a situation and must wait upon God to move on our behalf. No one who has been through such times can say it is easy. It is usually heart-wretching. We become broken and contrite. 
We cry out for mercy. These dark times and trials/tribualtions require strength. Jesus will give it. It requires much prayer, trust (wholly) and patience. So hard, yes! Endurance and enduring are difficult to learn and to carry out. As time ticks slowly is excruciatingly difficult.

Too many quit in the last hour, not knowing it IS the final and last hour. So, if you are in such a place, and the pain of uncertainty, helplessness and waiting seems overwhelming, let this be an encouragement to you. 

God has not forgotten you, and most likely (if you've been in the place (battle/trial) for a long time), it may seem like He has. Whether you have had to wait overnight, or years, even decades, O, hold onto trust. Keep the faith!

Yes I know how hard it is when we need an answer NOW or a way out NOW. He has not forgotten or overlooked you. The devil is a liar. He is cruel and a tormentor. Allow the purging, the hurts, but it is for the good. 

You will come out, you will. Just know that His timing is never our timing...but the time is upon God's people now. Jesus, who sent the Holy Spirit, He will hold us steady if we allow him. 

Don't quit...don't give up.  We cannot see the Lord or know what work He is doing in the background to make everything fall into place according to His will. Even though you have kept his ways, you do not understand the trial, or if you do, then you do not understand the long wait. Not much longer...

Behold, OI gor forward, but He is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive Him: on the left hand, where He does work but I cannot behold hi: he hides himself on the right hand, so that I cannot see Him:

But He iknows the way that I take: when He has TRIED me, I shall COME FORTH as gold. [Job 23:8-10]

This is not the time to give up. Though your strength is gone, trust God. He is Spirit and His ways are more creative than we can imagine. If He can cause a donkey to speak the language of a man, He can surely speak to you by digital means (He created ALL space...even cyberspace)
The realization of helplessness we suffer knowing we cannot do the impossible frustrates us. A spirit of fear tries to paralyze us and tempt us to just give up, to let go of faith and trust in God because he has deserted you, or passed over.

Satan is the father of lies. His lies will hurt and confuse you, and can even make you angry and blame God for being cruel and making you suffer. Satan lies; when the cruel one is him or any one of his minions on assignment against you. Cast down imaginations, and put on your armour.

(God speaks, right here...right now.)  

Hold fast, My child, it (your answer, your promise) is about to manifest. Push through as a woman does as the baby is about to come out of the birth canal. In other words, you are so close...don't give up, no matter how painful. 

You're almost through this hardship. Many of My faithful people, having surrendered all, are about to walk into their long-awaited destinies.
This is a time and season like never before, both in the natural and in the spiritual. Look around and say it is not so. 

Indeed, the "time like no other time" has begun. Trust. Hold fast. Give thanks...the appointed time is upon My faithful ones who persevered! 

It is guaranteed our forerunners dealt with the very same fears and emotions we do when they were going through their hardest times. We read about how they had the faith to the end, but the Bible is silent about whether they struggled to hold fast, refusing to let go. The trials for each of us are different.

Jesus said, With men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible. [
Mat 19:26] For with God, nothing shall be impossible.
[Lk 1:37

The heart is tried; the waiting, particularly near the very end. It is unbearable. Not looking at the circumstances or outward appearances can be a fierce battle within the battle. Let's not pretend; it would be bloody hard not to look at the teeth of a hungry lion before you, or not to notice the flames all around you, or not to notice the stormy waters and the unnnatural act of walkig on those waters. 

And that is when we are told "look to Jesus (Yeshua)". Yes, it takes everything; all our strength (and we cry out, "I can't take more, me; I have no strength left. it's unbearable; something Lord."He knows, He is with us. We don't understand in those moments, but in hindsight we do.

O brave one, push through. Keep on! Don't give up! It may feel as though all your fighting is being fought uphill alone, and you are out of strength and energy. 

...Fear not, be of good courage. If that is where you are at, surrender to Jesus. Ask Him to take over but you simply can't do it. You have fought long and long, so faithfully. 
Your enemies outnumber you. A thread, a mustard're barely hanging on. Satan is a liar; a master of illusion. He makes things look real that are not (illusion), and obscures the truth with convincing lies (deception). God is greater; God is in control.

Don't give up, give in to God. Release all, as hard as it is (even your "Isaac" [that which is closest to your heart]). Allow God to take over. He will -- Hes the Lord of the battle. You cannot see Him, but He is there with you. 

He is here now, encouraging you through a stranger, in cyberspace. A cell, a tablet, a laptop or desktop - that does not hinder him or stop him...He is not limited, neither can he be contained within time or space. He's the Creator of it. 

He's fighting on your behalf. You are so close; you are almost there. It is the last hour of the test. You have come this far on not give up now

He is the quintessence of the gospel, your strength, your song, your salvation. the Lord is a man of war; His arm is glorious in power...His right hand will dash your enemies (spiritual) to pieces. [Ex 15:2-3, 6

Push through to the end. Keep on the full armour of God, and having done all, STAND. [[Eph 6:13] Offer praise and thanksgiving, resting in your TRUST in Him...God is with you whether you sense it or not; whether you hear Him or not.  
Wait...not much longer; not much longer. Not much further, not much further. 

If you are in that last hour of the battle and are reading this, He brought you here to this spot, to reveal to you how He works, suddenly and places you were not looking for Him. So great is His love for you, precious soul....hold fast. 

You are almost there! It has been a long haul, but He has not failed you! It is the last hour, the final push. Faith is tried. It can be almost unbearable. We have heard that, but we didn't know 'how' our faith would be tried. It can be painful and exceptionally difficult, but eternity with our Creator, our Abba (Father), our Messiah Jesus (Christ, Yeshua) makes it all worthwhile. 

Just as Abraham, in the way God sees fit, our faith, trust and love for and in Him will absolutely be tested. Hold fast to Jesus; let the Holy Spirit lead and help you through.

Satan loses. Suddenly we understand why Peter stepped out of the boat in faith, walking toward Jesus, only to become fearful because of what his eyes saw (impossible) and his logic (his own understanding) kicked in...and fear overwhelmed his faith.

Some say, “How could he be afraid when Jesus was right there with him?” Well, Jesus is right here with us too, and it can be vicious sometimes waiting for a thing to pass…there is the tendency to want out. It IS where many quit.

Faith, trust and obedience are being tried like never before. Be strong and courageous. You are not alone in this. Great darkness is beginning to move over the nations of the world; war is coming.

Other brethren around the world are suffering through their own extreme trials. Jesus (Yeshua) remains with us through it all. It is why we need to encourage and pray for one another.

Do not give up in the final moments. Wait a little longer; cleave to God through Jesus Christ. The battle in this war is in God's hands, and yes, it gets heated and intense, extremely intense, but the victory is already assured. Waiting and enduring is one of the hardest tests of all. God never fails!

The Last Hour
At the beginning of our spiritual walk, the testing is akin to elementary level tests. However, as we progress forward, the trials/testing becomes more difficult and challenging. 

Then the day comes when the most exhausting and ultimate test presents itself. No trial is easy, but the closer the walk with God, the more intense, the more painful, the more unbearable, the more challenging the trials are. The last hour, just before the victory, is tremendously challenging.

Everything within you, love, hope, faith, trust and obedience is hard-pressed. It may be your own Garden of Gethsemane, or your own belief in an impossible situation or unheard of miracle turning into a glorious victory. Yes, and we tried heavily.

I truly believe the last hour is the hardest, especially after a very long wait, or what has seemed to be an eternity.

Until the time that his word (promise) came: the word of the Lord tried him (Joseph). [Ps 105:19]

And the one who suffered more than any of us can even imagine, betrayed, rejected, mocked, tormented, whipped, beaten, spit upon, his beard yanked off in places, crown of thorns put upon his head as a crown, and finally, hands and feet brutally nailed to a tree. Yet, what did Jesus do?

Then Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. [Lk 23:34]

When the "university level" or ultimate test falls upon you, you may not even realize it is a test. Most of us don’t because not everything is a test.

The Time is Upon Us
In the next little while (not sure how long) God has been (and will be) strategically positioning His people. Many need healing, deliverance and restoration before they can properly face what is coming.  He knows.

To the faithful, it shall be so, in order to fulfill each destiny of the obedient, for precisely these end times. Much is going on. Everything the Lord does is done decently and in order, meaning, it is according to His will and plan, whether people like it or not, whether they believe it or not. 

We are in the beginning of sorrows and have been for some time, but the hour draws near. Nothing is the same as it was. We are in the time that others have heard about for decades but did not see. It is as the days of Noah...most do not believe what they see before their very eyes, and refuse to hear what the Spirit of God is saying.

It is as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, where even many who call themselves Christians; who call themselves "representatives of Christ" and call out His name, are turning a blind eye to things God calls an abomination. They say it is done in "love" because God does not "condemn".

Liars! Deceived souls, tricked by seducing spirits. God does not condemn but He will convict to bring people to repentance, to humble themselves and turn away from that which is not of God. Real love will speak hard truths, no matter the cost. Read about situations and people Jesus faced and how he handled it.
At times he sounded rough: "You hypocrite...(to the Pharisees) [Lk 13:15]

"Go tell that fox, behold, I cast out devils, I do cures today and tomorrow..." (when the Pharisees told Jesus to stop because Herod will kill him) [Lk 13:32]
"O generation of vipers, how can you being evil, speak good things?..."
[Mat 12:34]

"You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?" [Mat 23:33]

"Jesus, that's not walking in love. Judge not so you wont be judged..." Give me a break, please!

Jesus is the epitome of love (God is love). He hung on a rough, rugged tree out of his love for mankind. We are His people and we cannot compromise. Look around at the times we are in. If you cannot see, then pray about it. How can you look at a lost soul, and not try to snatch them out of the fire, the second death (lake of fire)? 

We cannot. Why o why do you think persecution is such a reality, and the hate we will face in the West will be also. It is fast approaching. Churches have already been forced shut. IF they reopen, how long will it be for? And what happens the day we are not to speak the name of Jesus, on threat of death?

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in diverse places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginning of sorrows[Mk 13:8]

Jesus (Yeshua) continues to remind people to try every spirit, EVERY spirit to see if it is of the God of truth or not…go to the written Word and spend prayerful time in His presence and in reverence. WAIT patiently and He will speak to you.

Warnings are sounding! The birth pangs are intensifying and becoming more frequent! Take heed…stay alert!

There is an escalation of wickedness occurring. Forceful plans, carried out by forces of evil, are setting up to be quickly unleashed on an unsuspecting people --- globally, nation by nation! Pray…stay balanced in Christ…He will keep you in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him.

Non-human entities will appear. Illusions will look real. Holograms, augmented reality, 3D projections, holoportation (virtual 3D teleportation in real time…all very convincing. I am definitely not getting into this right now. Some years ago, I wrote several different articles with links etc.

Jesus (Yeshua) forewarned us in Matthew 24:4 - Take heed that no man deceive you.

Nothing is Normal Anymore

That which has been is now; and that whicch is to be has already been, and God requires that which is past[Eccl 3:15]

I do believe the Lord has been warning people for some time now…come to Him, repent whilst there is still time. Those who are disciples of Jesus have been urged to spend more time in God’s presence so that He can direct our steps and speak to each of us, deep down within our spirit.

Ask for confirmation, even if it begins with scripture(s) because remember that Satan didn’t hesitate to use the Word of God against Jesus in the desert wilderness. Believe me. I got deceived once because of something that started with scriptures (oh, that must be of God). 

In that time it seems I forgot how Satan deceived Eve by twisting the Word of God, and how Satan used scripture in his temptation with Christ, in an effort to cause Jesus to sin, but he failed...and it says, he left for a season. [Lk 4:13]

The whole situation was from the enemy, causing certain scriptures to come before my eyes, whispering ideas, creating an illusion, all done with manipulation and timing.

Satan, the prince of the power of the air. The end result caused division and cost me greatly. It tore hearts apart. Never did I expect the end result; it tore me apart and put me in an unbearable trial.

When I asked the Lord why, He told me that i did not bring the matter to him first, or pray about it and wait for his answer. Since it started with two scriptures I did not pray about it because I thought it was from God

And yet, how often have I said or written to take all things to God? Over the years, countless times. What a lesson! What a cost! I pray that God will do a miracle, as only He can undo the enemy's work and only He can correct certain wrongs.

But going deep in prayer with the Lord, He will protect those who stay close to Him with a humble and sincere heart, who bring ALL things to Him and WAIT for His answer or confirmation. He is God and faithful to His word.

Incredible and extraordinary events are taking place around the globe. Many journalists who write about these events are calling them “biblical”.

In Mexico, in Ciudad Valles, huge hailstones (size of grapefruits) pelted down, doing much damage and injuring three people. That was odd enough, but many thought that hail that fell in some places looked eerily like a magnified coronavirus?

People posted pictures and videos of the hail storm. Conflicting with the hail were frightening displays of lightning. In some videos that recorded the event, thunder could be heard.

And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder an hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. [Ex 9:23, 24]

The storm reached into Texas as well, breaking windshields, causing damage and injuring three.

Egypt and Iran are battling hordes of locusts of “biblical” proportion. The numbers of the locusts is so vast that areas have reported that the cloud of them blocked out the sun, covering the land in darkness. This is the second year in a row troops were sent out to handle the situation.
Finally, desert sands gathered and swept over the land, covering Egypt in such a massive storm that the land was covered in darkness.

Last month (April 2020), southern Ontario got hit with thunderstorms (not as large as Mexico’s and Texas, but oddly severe thunder roared through the skies as well. Severe Thunder-Hail-Ontario

Near Vancouver, in the Lower Mainland on April 1, 2020, snow, hail thunder and lightning were observed by residents. The hail was only pea-size apparently, yet, it is still out of the ordinary. Such reports and anomalies are happening globally.  Thunder – Hail - BC

From heavy flooding (Australia) and relentless fires, to snow walls rolling over the Black Sea (Turkey), weather globally is unstable and unusual. In other places100 mph winds turn waterfalls upside down, defying nature and blowing the water upwards.  2020 Bizarre Weather

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord. [Joel 2:30, 31]

The locusts have no king, yet they go forth all of them by bands.
He spoke and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number.
[Prov 30:27; Ps 105:34]

God Forewarns – He is Calling

Worth reminding - we have a very real adversary who knows his time is short and he is livid and violent. Since the day of Jesus (Yeshua) there have been false prophets, false brethren and false doctrine, even before Jesus was born.

Things are spiraling downward, but particularly now as the day of the Antichrist’s revealing approaches.

God Almighty is calling us to “come, come…”  His Son, Jesus wants to speak to you…come and wait in his presence so He can counsel, comfort and instruct. He calls for obedience. How can He direct our steps if we are not going to listen? How will we know what to do? Time…with the Maker.

Let us hear Him. Let us wait upon Him.

I am led to post a word from April 10, 2012. It had been one of the files that I thought was lost, but I “stumbled” upon it when I wasn’t even looking for it. It is called, God of Glory Thundereth:

It had been posted in 2014 under the title, "Stay Alert to What You Sense in Your Spirit"

Reposted April 14, 2014

There is a word that the Lord wants me to post, which was originally posted in November 2010.

If there is anything to be learned about the prophetic is that unless He says otherwise, it is 'timeless', for it comes from the Sovereign God who is not contained within or limited by the time/space continuum, as He is the Creator of it.  He speaks to people out of His love…

Therefore, all glory belongs to the Lord, for He has many methods and innumerable vessels.  None can counsel Him or suggest which way, method or manner He should use to accomplish that which He desires.  All glory, honor and praise to the King of kings and Lord of lords.


God of Glory Thundereth
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters. [Ps 29:3]

(People of God)

You were held captive for a season.  Your true love Jesus [Y'shua] has interceded on your behalf, for your faith has been sifted as wheat.  My people, stand back for I have risen from My throne.  My voice is upon many waters and it is heard in many thunders.  My GLORY thunders!

I AM wroth for My children have been tossed about as a plaything; and every time they rose up in new strength, having spent time with Me, the fury of the oppressor came upon them to beat them down.

O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgement in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, least My fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.  [Jer 21:12]

Yet I send forth the mightiest of My holy angels and the Captain of the heavenly hosts is with them, issuing His commands to them.  They shall obey immediately.  Stand still and see the salvation of your Lord and God.  Be still and know that I AM God.  The spirit of mockery has danced and tread upon the minds of My people, saying to them, Where is your God?

The spirit of division has caused many to point a wiry finger of accusation at each other and particularly against those who walk after My ways and in My commandments.  Presumption has laughed a mighty roar, yet I remind you that
it is written: 
 Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil (Satan) walks about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. 
[1Pet 5:8]
The very spirits of treachery and death have risen up mightily in this hour.  Leviathan has a sword, yet I shall breathe holy fire upon it and consume it for I AM a consuming fire. 

Jezebel, the harlot of mystery Babylon shall fall, but before her fall shall the shame be upon her nakedness, as I expose her for what she truly is.  She who sat as queen saying, I am no widow [Rev 18:7], has spewed her venom upon the virgin daughters of Zion.  Some of My daughters (and even My sons) were temporarily stunned by the venom of her power. 

Others were paralyzed with fear, whilst others did fall for a moment under the crushing power of her manipulation, control, hatred and evil.  She has sent forth her seducing spirits to enchant (bewitch), lure and charm all of My people, for those who are not Mine are already under her power and rule.  Many love to have it so, for they love her seductions and [they] are a rebellious lot.

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because you suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce My servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.  
[Rev 2:20]
Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well-favoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that sells nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.  [Nahum 3:4] 
(Side note* - Nahum foretells of the destruction of Nineveh by Assyrians overlords. Since Nineveh is not yet destroyed to this day, then Nahum's prophecy is for a time ahead, perhaps soon ahead. Dates are not given - watch! 2010)
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.  [Rev 2: 21, 22]
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (re: judgment of the great whore (Jezebel spirit)  [Rev 17:2]

Yea, but I have arisen!  My holy fire shall consume the webs and the cockatrice eggs.  Not even the ashes shall remain from this burning for My consuming fire shall utterly obliterate all traces and remnants.

None calls for justice, nor any plead for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.
Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.  Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 
[Is 59:5-8]

Arise, o captive daughter of Zion, for I have set you free.  You have withstood through mighty testing and even in your weakness, you cried out to Me and gave Me glory.  Trust Me with the one you love.  Stand back and do not interfere.  Trust Me and let Me have My way [with them], for I have heard the prayers.  

(Note* - This word is futuristic as of this date, 2010)

Stand fast, My mighty warrior, for I shall endue you with power to overcome, immerse you in My Spirit, as you step out in obedience now and DO all that I have required of you to do in this time slot.

Though He were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which He suffered  [Heb5:8]

Go forth, doing those things which I have asked you to do.  The day of mighty healing, salvation, deliverance and restorataion are here, for the body of My Christ has been crying out for these very things. 

(Note* - the Lord is speaking of true believers of Christ Jesus / Yeshua)

Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that you will also do more than I say  [Philemon 1:21]

Fear not for all you have seen and all you have heard.  For I AM aware of the battle with its confused noise and garments rolled in blood, yet the government is upon My shoulder.  I am called Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Lion of the tribe of Judah, who has risen to fight on your behalf.  [Is 9:5, 6]

Stand back and see salvation and deliverance.  I shall rise up and show forth My magnificence.  Do all I tell you to do or how can I bless you if you do not obey?  Keep My word upon your lips and in your heart. 
I AM the God of glory who thunders; I AM He who lets out a mighty roar. I have risen from My throne; I have let out a mighty roar!

After it a voice roars: He thunders with the voice of His excellency; and He will not stay them when His voice is heard.  God thunders marvellously with His voice; great things does He, which we cannot comprehend.  [Job 37: 4, 5]

And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall morn, and the top of Carmel shall wither. [Amos 1:2]

The LORD shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel [Joel 3:16]

They shall walk after the Lord: He shall roar like a lion: when He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west [Hos 11:10]
Be encouraged.  Fear not.  Be strong.  Be strong and courageous.  Keep in my will, stay obedient.  Be strong and very courageous and OBEY all that I speak to you and when you have done all, stand. 

Do not go seeking at this time nor walk in the ways of the world.  Trust and obey. Stand back, wait patiently, and you will yet see that which I told you I would do.
