Winds are Changing - Great Darkness

Received September 27, 2007 (original post - October 3, 2007)  

  Winds Are Changing - Great Darkness                         
NOW is the TIME! We are to press in like never before; be obedient to what He asks, no matter how foolish it looks to the world or to man. Be prepared. It may cost you everything! You know this though, don't you?

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; [1Cor 1:27]

Winds are Changing
The winds are indeed changing and greater darkness is soon upon us...
The darkness of great evil is encompassing the world; its foreboding shadow is cast. Believers and unbelievers alike sense evil coming.  We are already witnessing the chaos that comes from sin, but also from God's judgment.

Beginning of Sorrows (a message given...)

The beginning of sorrows already has started and many, many there are that do know this, but many of My people are becoming confused, frustrated, beaten down. Walking in love and faith are challenged like never before.

This is happening in all nations and its people these days, including My people. Countless numbers are experiencing things coming at them in every direction - onslaughts increasing - they bear heavy burdens which weaken them, taking their inner strength. 
They feel beaten down, desperately alone, grossly misunderstood, grievously torn - burdened by the past - the strength of their heart poured out - in a dry place [drylands] - a wilderness. People are becoming impatient with each other and many relationships are being destroyed. The work of flesh and the enemy increases.
Hear this carefully. The adversary is roaming as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, for the beast is arising... the dragon is near.
He counterfeits every good work I do but the fruit of his work leads to corruption, division, destruction and chaos.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: [1Pet5:8]

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. [Jer31:27]

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. [Rev 12:9,17]

A Time of Training and Preparation
My people, be strengthened, for these trials are necessary as part of your training.  This is a time of training and of preparation. This preparation must be done for soon great troubles shall be upon all nations and all people. This is the time to seek Me.  This is the time to give thanks, to praise Me, to worship Me.
This is a time to obey My instructions. I am a God of order and surely I shall direct the steps of those who put their trust in Me and do My will.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. [1Cor14: 33]
There are events coming that will cause many to fall into complete and utter confusion IF they are not abiding and being obedient to Me. Controlling, mocking, seducing and tormenting spirits are being sent out by the enemy, the prince of the power of the air.
Witchcraft is increasing; the enemy is becoming bolder.  Great fear and unbelief will abound. Love is waxing cold, people lying to each other and deceiving one another and many shall fall away from their faith in Me. All of this is a precursor of what is soon upon all the nations of the earth.
Do not fear as you hear this. Prepare...

(Note* - The Lord is faithful to warn people fairly before any judgment or terror comes. Search His word, take it down into your heart and see that this is true. His name is Faithful and True.)

Judgment has Begun

Countless people have been enduring onslaughts like never before, and in all the nations of the world. The onslaughts are effecting every area of their lives, such as personal relationships, (amongst family, friends and associates) finances and health. 
Even amongst believers, division is being seen. For judgment has begun in My house...
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? [1Pet 4:17]
A testing time is going on for some; for others it is a time of training. Stand strong and put your faith and all that you have learned into action. For without faith, it is impossible to please Me. Do you understand? Have you not discerned? Faith simply trusts Me. Faith simply obeys. Faith simply loves.

Daniel forewarned that one will raise himself up, that is different from the rest. He will speak against the Most High and will WEAR DOWN THE SAINTS 
of the Most High Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 
To those who are holding fast to their faith, trusting God for personal promises and impossible miracles for healing, deliverance, salvation and even full restoration are hearing in their inner man, 'Has God said?' 
Trust and Obey

Know your enemy, who is Satan the adversary and his evil army and know all their wicked schemes and devises. In Christ Jesus, you are more than conquerors. Take My strength for when you are weak, I am strong. Rest in My love.

Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside Me. [Is 45:21]

Fiery darts are penetrating the minds of people, seeking to steal their peace, destroy their faith, kill their love, hope and trust in Me. Those who abide in Me and know My word will quench the fiery darts of the enemy. 
Stand fast.  Do not flinch or give up.  Having done all, stand! Look to Me, focus on Me for I AM and in Me is your strength to endure to the end.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. [Rev 12:12]

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. [2Cor 2:11]

As a loving parent, I the Lord tell you, to take time alone with Me. Listen carefully and you will hear My instructions well. Abide in Me and simply obey.

Seek the LORD and His strength, seek His face continually. [1Chr 16]

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it 
ABIDE in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me. [Jn 15:4]

Then shall I arise in My righteousness; to establish you.

In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you. [Is 54:24]

Rise up, LORD, and let Your enemies be scattered; and let them that hate You flee before You. [Num 10:35]

(End of this part of message)
(The Lord impressed upon me that there are those who are at peace; who have no concerns, to them all is well; these are those in the most danger of being caught unawares. There is no urgency in their spirit to see what the LORD is calling them to do at this time. 
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (satisfied to the full, desire no more), and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. [Lk 21:34] 
He is bringing [His] people together, but we are to be aware of the counterfeiter Satan, who will try to sidetrack us, to keep us from our destiny. The Father is arranging things so that people will be where they are supposed to be when the greater tribulation begins, but we must obey His leading and not doubt. 
Prayer and waiting upon the Lord to direct will quench doubt and all the fiery darts of the enemy. Satan will tempt us, try to keep us in bondage in any area of weakness. Greater tribulation is fast approaching. Centuries of warnings – 
Many who are at peace are not pressing in to hear His personal instructions for their lives. We must prayer about all things, but in particular, very serious matters. Our counsel must come from the LORD. It grieves Him if we do not pray, for He has plans for all. Nevertheless, He will not force anything. People must choose to obey Him. 
(Message continued below…)
Why, o why, o why do you think I try the heart and the reins, to see if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength; to see if you will trust Me and obey Me in all things?

For the days come, when just like Abraham, just as Jacob, just as Joshua, just as David, just as Joseph (with Mary), I will tell you to, '
Arise, go!'... to leave everything.
You will not have time to question and delay; you will have to simply trust and obey, forsaking all to cling to Me. Do not try to understand and know everything.

Believe My Word; believe My power; believe My love just as a child would do. Believe My promises in My Word, but also believe My personal promises to you. My sheep know My voice and another they will not follow.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your steps.

Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. [Pro3:5, 6;30:5]

Do not trust in the things you see, for the things you see are temporal. The adversary works in the realm of the flesh. Often things are not what they appear to be, for Satan is the master of illusion, the father of lies, one who can appear as an angel of light.

On one hand, he is presenting great signs and wonders, as I foretold in My word. On the other hand, he is stirring up confusion, fear and unbelief by presenting circumstances that defy My word and personal promises to those who are trusting Me for answers to their prayers.

I allow what I allow to purge, to purify and even to try the hearts of My people so that they will walk holy, by faith with love, despite all outward appearances. Remember, you are in training, warrior. 
Abide in Me and allow My perfect love to cast out all fear, for I have not given you a spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind. A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Be single minded, be sober, be vigilant. Trust in your Savior and Redeemer, Christ Jesus.

Temptation and the Cross

In all things, give thanks. Offer up the sacrifice of praise. The father of lies and all of his evil army will seek to tempt you, to draw you back into the world (Babylon) with all its lusts; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

NOW is the time to seek Me. Now is the time to trust Me. Now is the time to pick up the cross and die to self. Now is the time of purifying.  Now is the time of testing and of training.  Now is the time to simply trust and obey.

For just as My beloved Son Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, in all things and in every way, so shall you be. Think it not a strange thing when fiery trials befall you [1Pet 4:12], for such is happening amongst all the brethren.

All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. [Ps145:10]

Winds are Changing

Come to Me...

You have heard of reports and testimonies of trial and tribulations and of great evil. Do not fear, but discern the hour and the day that you are in. Time is short.  Winds are changing; greater darkness is coming and shall increase.

Come... Come to Me and let us sup together.

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.[Mat 7:25]

In humility, pray, pour out your heart in brokenness, for I AM still the God who binds up the brokenhearted. I AM still He that comforts those with a broken and contrite spirit. 

[Note* - Repentance, turning away from sin (change of mind and ways) and turning back to the Lord God has ALWAYS been the way to forgiveness and healing. Now through the Christ Jesus, the Messiah [Y'shua], we can go to the Father.]
If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. [2Chr 7:14, 15]

Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me. [Jn 14:6]

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; [Is 61:1]

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. [Ps 34:18]

Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [Mat 11:28]

For as the shadow of great evil has cast itself over the land, as the wicked one arises, NOW is the TIME to abide, clinging to the Vine (Jesus). For we are at the end of the age
And then shall that Wicked One be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: 

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deception of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [2Thes 2:8-10]

The Lord tells His Bride: Come, My beloved. I bid thee come...
Bride: Maranatha (our LORD cometh...)
Read Prayerfully - Psalm 91

He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will 
I trust.

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings shall you trust: His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come nigh you.
Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, your habitation;

There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling.

For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. 


They shall bear you up in their hands, least you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall you trample under feet.
Because he has set His love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation.
[Ps 91: 1-15]
To the true, who daily seek My face, who abide and cling to Me, the great darkness will not frighten them. They have had eyes to see its approach. They are being prepared and lay down their lives to follow Me.

They are being taken to depths of intimacy so intensified that they do not desire to leave My presence. They have and are entering into new levels that are beyond anything they have experienced.

Continually they learn that I AM the unsearchable Father and Creator. Deeper and deeper and closer and closer, they come unto Me, knowing Me in an increased intimacy that strengthens them and increases their faith.

They despise religious spirits and pride. They are humble before Me, ever eager to learn; ever searching their hearts, ever willing to be chastened if they are wrong, ever repentant if they fall short in word, deed or thought, ever pressing on to the mark of the high calling, ever obedient, desiring My will and not their own will.

Their praise for Me is continually upon their lips as thanksgiving pours forth from the secret chambers of their heart. They worship Me in Spirit and in truth.
They pray instantly, bearing each others burdens and crying out, with My passion for a lost and dying world. They do not consider themselves better than another, but are meek and humble, having often had a broken and contrite spirit. 
They have allowed Me to put within them a pure (clean) heart and I have given them clean hands. This is a process, be patient.  The purifying fires have been removing every spot and blemish, for I will have a holy Bride. These are My precious sons and daughters, in whom I delight.

These are they who look to Me; daily picking up their cross, considering the cost and choose to live holy as I am holy. They understand the difference between being imperfect and walking in perfection (
maturity, whole, complete). They know Me and I know them. They are Mine for they were bought with a price.

(End of word He gave me) 
Greater Works

There are those who have been in training and being prepared for years, so that they will go thru the tribulation in the power, and might and glory of their King, performing the very miracles of Him who went before them, for Y’shua, Christ Jesus, declared that those who believe in Him, shall do greater works than these because He goes to the Father...

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. [Jn 14:12]

Their heart is to do the Father's will. They walk by faith and not by sight. They fear not man or death; they do not seek to be pleasers of man, but to please God [Yhvh Elohim, Jehovah]. 

They desire to only be obedient to the Lord's will and not their own. They continually search their own hearts and are in constant communion with their King and Lord [Creator, Great Spirit], for they understand full well, that apart from Jesus / Yshua, they can do nothing. They seek the Lord God's face continually, clinging to Him. They walk humbly, doing justly, loving mercy, obeying His commandments.
Though it is written that the Lord is no respecter of persons, there are those whom He has prepared and plans to use for such a time as this. A remnant [within all nations of the world] shall be protected in the days that fast approach.
For just as Jesus the Christ (Messiah) did, they have learned and are learning obedience thru what they have suffered. They walk upright and in holiness, accepting the pruning and the purifying. There will also be many martyred for their faith in Jesus/ Y’shua, yet their reward awaits them.

Did You Feel a Raindrop?

Just as events will occur that have never occurred before nor shall ever occur again, so shall a holy remnant [scattered globally throughout all nations of the world] move in the Lord's power performing greater works…just as the prophets of old, as the apostles, as Christ Jesus on whom they believe (for the Word has thus been written), all declared that it shall be so.  
They will not be puffed up, understanding that without Christ, they can do nothing. All glory, strength, honour and praise is given to Almighty God, majestic King of kings and Lord of lords.
They overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and love not their life unto death. [Rev 12:11] All that they do, in Jesus' name and for the Living Lord God's [Creator] glory, will declare to the world, that there is only ONE God and there is no other.

Remember that His ways are not our ways, nor are His thoughts as our thoughts. Simple trust, faith and obedience...
We serve a mighty, faithful and true King and Lord, our Savior, Messiah, Redeemer.


for HIS glory†
(End of 2007 message)
This was not the message I had planned to post but it is the one I was led to post.  In Noah's day, a warning was witnessed for many decades as Noah built the ark; the very building of it preached to the people. How many years it took him is not clearly established; some say less than 75, others postulate 120 years.  Either way, the people had years to prepare; years upon years of warnings.
Is that not the same today? Have we not had decades and decades of warnings, even before many of us were born?  We long for God to stay His hand, for just a little longer, but He has preordained what must come. Thus, it is written.
He has been training and preparing; pruning, purging and purifying.  He is merciful and gracious beyond measure, but He is also a righteous God of judgment and justice.
Just as in the days of Noah, there must come a day that the warnings stop and judgment is carried out in all the fullness that He warned us about.  Maranatha, marantha. 
Marana tha is an Aramaic transliterated word. The definition (Aramaic) is either: Our Lord hath come, or, Our Lord cometh (will come, is at hand). 
Perfect tense in Aramaic, emphasizing the lingering results involved.
Indeed, either way, our Lord HAS come and He is coming again. The time is at hand, for all who have eyes to see.

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 

[1Cor 16:22]
for His glory alone

Link below for BlogTalk Radio Program tonight*
Note* - I will be posting the radio time shortly (an hour or so - it is 5:05 pm Pacific). Tentatively, the program will be at 8 PM Pacific. I realize that is late for those in Central and Eastern time zones, but there is always the archives if one is interested.
There has been incredible delays, distractions, hindrances and events continually. It is at the Lord's prodding that I am doing it tonight on such short notice. I will also be sending a link out via the mailing list. Shalom in Christ... BP 

1:00 PM - EST / 12 Midnight - Central / 10:00 PM Pacific

It certainly was a challenge getting the program scheduled in the studio. This is how it has been for about a month now, but glory to God, it is scheduled. I had to keep changing the time because BlogTalk radio was incredibly slow uploading information.

Ahh, be that as it may, I shall spare the reader the details.  Suffice it to say that the program will go On Air Live tonight, whilst most of you will likely be counting sheep, ha!  Program can be accessed at any time in the archives by clicking on the link above. Thanks to those who encouraged me! BP
