Great Changes - Evil Descends, Fear Not, Destiny is Upon You

* NOTE - I have added the link for the upcoming radio program today (April 13, 2015) at the bottom of this article. BP2015

Part of this was given to me a little over a week ago on April 2, which I shared a portion of with a few brethren – two sisters, one in West Virginia and one in Georgia, as well as a brother in Tennessee.  More was given to me over the course of several days.  I waited to post, as hindrances arose, as well as lies from the enemy. Praise God for He does indeed strengthen the heart of those who put their trust in Him. I present this to you for your discernment. May it bless you, in edifying and encouragement.

Great Changes - Evil Descends, Fear Not, Destiny is Upon You

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. [1Jn 1:9]

But thou, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering (patient), and plenteous in mercy and truth.  [Ps 86:15]

Worthy of Worship
Know ye 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.

For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations.  [Ps 100:2-4]
 
Changes on the Horizon
And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.  [2Chron 29:36]

Changes are beginning and have begun – great changes. They have begun and shall proceed. In time with Me, I reveal that which I so choose to, not only that which you have been prepared for, but also that which you knew not – that which is to come.

Some of the great changes have been part of a long process and began previously at a time I chose and shall manifest at the appointed time. Other changes come; and though they may appear as suddenly, they were ordained for a determined time.

Though the majority state that things are always changing, I tell you that the changes that are coming have been foreordained. The world shall see changes the likes of which have never been seen before – these things must be, for many have been foretold in My word.

My people shall see changes that they have waited for – changes that have been prayed for, as well as personal covenant promises coming to pass (manifesting).  There are those who come to Me in true humility; those who fear their God, honouring Me with thanksgiving and praise, hungering for an even deeper intimacy.

I have heard the prayers of My people, those who pray with humility. I have seen the truth in the prayers, as they pour out their hearts to Me over all that concerns them. I hear the prayers of the weak, as well as the strong. I have heard your prayers. Be patient.

Faith, Trust and Patience
Many do not understand My ways, for they have not learned that faith must be blended with trust. Others must be patient and not struggle with the waiting period, yet it is written:

The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him. [Lam3:25]  

They endeavour not to complain, yet the difficulty and frustration in learning patience (waiting) has been hard. Indeed, it is a hard thing to learn and practice at times, yet it does teach much and yields a harvest of good.

It is but one of many lessons, and yes, one of many trials and tests My people must pass. At the end of the matter, patience reaps its rewards.  Hold fast to that which I have spoken to you, for it shall come and not tarry – only be patient just a while longer. It is coming – it is done in the spiritual; wait for it in the natural. 

Give thanks; rejoice. Let your faith prove to be firmly established, trusting in Me. Faith and patience has its rewards.  I too have had long patience for the precious fruit to come forth. Do not let the adversary or any man (person) sway you or take you off the path that I have and am leading you upon. 
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. [1Pet5:6-9]

The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 
[Jn 10:10 – warning given, with hope from Jesus (Y’shua)]

Let none defer your hope in what you know is of Me, no matter what. Keep strong in your faith and patience, for your wait is not much longer. You have heard of the patience of Job. He too had to wait for change in his circumstances and for healing and restoration to come, knowing it was yet for an appointed time. Yes, it was a very difficult trial for him. 

If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.  [Job 14:14]

Job suffered in his waiting, even though he believed and understood a change would come. You know the outcome: he was healed and restored double portion (body, soul, spirit) in all that he lost, when My purpose was accomplished. To everything, there is a purpose, a time and a season.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: [Eccl 3:1]

Your very walk demands patience, not only for personal promises, but in waiting for the day when the last trump sounds, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and those alive and in Christ shall be changed.  Your hope is in Me; therein lies rest.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  [Rev 14:12]

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices: my flesh also shall rest in hope.  [Ps 16:9]

Rejoice, rejoice – stand firm on the promises in My word and faint not.  Again I say, be patient just a while longer for the appointed time – for it shall appear and seemingly suddenly.  Do not give in by setting your eyes upon the circumstances, for such things are temporal.  Set your eyes on the eternal and trust.

I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.  [Hab 2:1-3]

Changes of Evil
The wicked ones who plot secretly shall be caught in their own mischief and they shall not know from where it has arisen, for they have added year to year, killing sacrifices.  They shall not be able to put off that which shall be, for desolation shall come upon them suddenly and unexpectedly.  

[Many places] shall be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire [volcanoes; wars]. [Is 29:6]

That day is not yet, but fast approaches, for it is written and spoken by My Son:

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. [Mat 24:6, 7]

Yea, again I say, that day is not yet. For it is written:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [Mat 24:29 – words of Jesus/Y’shua]

These are some of the great changes that were foretold (prophesied).

Evil Escalates
A multitude of sorceries and a great abundance of enchantments have taken over the earth and its inhabitants, and a spirit of deep sleep has fallen upon the masses. Witchcraft seduces and ensnares, bewitching with a multitude of sorceries and an abundance of enchantments. Wisdom and knowledge have been perverted, and the evil of gross pride has lifted many up in its arrogance.

They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they Him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee you are unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed thee. [Deu 32:16-18]

Therefore shall evil come upon thee; you shall not know from whence it rises: and mischief shall fall upon thee; you shall not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which you shall not know. 
[Is 47:11]

Drought is spreading across the lands of the earth, in the physical and in the spiritual, for My judgments go forth. Indeed, a drought of truth also spreads, for My Word is not heard clearly.  In many places, My Word has been debased – corrupted and twisted in every way by the enemies of the cross and workers of iniquity. 

Many look for a sign so that they can believe, but I say once again: A wicked and adulterous generation look for a sign, but none will be given except the sign of Jonah. [Mat 16:4]

Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.  [Jn 4:48]

Evil entities have been and are hidden from the eyes of the deceived and lost multitudes, yet these shall soon manifest for all to see, in the appointed hour.  Satan can (has and will) appear as an angel of light and his ministers do appear as ministers of righteousness. Their end shall be according to their works. 
[2Cor 11:15]

Put on the full armour provided for you. Watch and pray! Stay close to Me and abide.

Ungodly Counsel
Many seek wisdom regarding matters at hand and things to come, yet in their lack, as well as their idolatry, they have not asked of Me.  They seek high and low for counsels, but not of Me.

Stand now with your enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein you have laboured from thy youth; if so be you shall be able to profit, if so be you may prevail. 

You are wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee [Is 47:12, 13]

Idolatry
Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?  Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;

Every man of the house of Israel that sets up his idols in his heart, and puts the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and comes to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that comes according to the multitude of his idols;

That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from Me through their idols. [Eze 14:3-5]

Deception

Many innocent have been deceived; many ignorant have been taught by and prophesied to by those whose heart is not after Me, and great is the number of the prisoners held captive.  Many prophets divine lies with vanity, saying, “Thus saith the Lord GOD”, when I have not spoken.

They conspire, taking people as prey like a roaring lion, devouring and oppressing souls, robbing them of treasure and truth. There is mixture of their words, done purposely to seduce and deceive and to accomplish their evil intent.  They draw people away from the cross, away from Me, away from My Word, away from My commandments.

Many pastors /preachers speak forth, putting no difference between the holy and profane or the unclean and the clean. Not one of these hirelings have stood in the gap for the people or for the nations, praying that they would not be destroyed.  Do not let them deceive you.

And I sought for a man [even one] 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 – please read verses 23-30 for clarity] 

Where is the laboring for the harvest? Where is the call to repentance? Where is the burden for sinners, lost souls and wounded believers?

Those that listen to the pastors, teachers and prophets such as these are like sheep that have no shepherd.

My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, My flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search My sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out My sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day
[Ezek 34:6, 11, 12]

The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine.

  As the Father knows Me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.  [Jn 10:13-16]
Flee from those who do not care for or protect the sheep. Flee from those who stray from the gospel of the good news and introduce to you a Saviour that is unlike Jesus (Y’shua) My Son. They introduce a doctrine, but not the doctrine of My Son who taught that the kingdom “has come near” (My Sovereignty, authority and power on earth).

For man also knows not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.  [Ecc 9:12]

But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding.  [Job 32:8]

Read My word; engrave it upon your heart. Then shall truth be clear and discernment sharpened. 
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.  
[Is 8:20]

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive[Eph 4:14]

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;  [1Tim6: 3-6]
Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of Me; and that cover with a covering, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin: [Is 30:1]

Satan’s Armies

The approaching hateful, destructive ones shall deceive many, and those many shall speak as one who has a familiar spirit, and their speech shall whisper out of the dust.
An infantry of terrible ones, evil in every way and cloaked in gross darkness, shall be led by one who works deceitfully and shall move with devices amongst the nations. All the nations shall be in distress and shall fight against them and from within.  This has been prophesied of old.
On one hand, the terrible ones shall bring destruction, and with another they shall show signs and do mighty miracles. Then shall the great and small upon the earth be led into battle.  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.  [Rev 16:14]

Yea, but My power and sovereignty has been doubted and clearly ignored by multitudes. They are ignorant of the time appointed; they have no fear of the One who does not change.

God shall hear, and afflict them, even He that abides of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. [Ps 55:19]

Great Change for My People
I have heard the cries of those who plead for revival, with travailing and groaning, even fasting. They agonize for salvation, healing and deliverance for those they know who are lost, for the multitudes that they do not know, and for those that they do know who need deliverance, and just one touch of the Master's hand. 

It is I who has given the gift of a heart filled with love to those who stand in the gap and intercede; this freely given to those who cry out for a pure heart and clean hands in all truth. Yea, for it is by My Spirit that I draw men unto Myself through My Son, Y’shua/Jesus.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?  [Mat 7:11]

Revival
Revival is indeed coming across the lands, across the nations – it has begun.  It cannot be advertised or planned by man, for revival is wrought with repentance, fervent prayer, humility and a willing heart.  I indeed have revived Mine who have wearied, yet still faithfully run the race, as well as those who desperately long for a deeper and closer intimacy with Me. 

O God, You are my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsts for Thee, my flesh longs for Thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see Thy power and Thy glory, so as I have seen Thee in the sanctuary.  [Ps 63:1, 2]

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: (And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit.)  [Acts 2:17; Joel 2:28, 29]

(Note* - the “last days”, “latter times” covers the entire gospel age and does not only pertain to ‘now’. We are in the last of the last days, which is obvious as we witness the increased number of prophecies fulfilled and being fulfilled before our very eyes, revival has happened all along - Moses, Elijah, Jonah, John the Baptist, et al. Understand... BP2015)

Revival has begun. My hand is not shortened that it cannot save. The delay is due to the few labourers – where are those willing to go forth into the harvest fields? It is they who travail and groan in prayer to be sent forth by Me to bring them in.

  But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.  
Then said He unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.  [Mat 9:36-38]

To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.  
[Jn 10:3, 4]

I am raising up My labourers who are willing and prepared workers. They are coming forth now; yea, they are here.

Labourers Being Sent Forth

My people, My elect, My remnant, shall know and witness great changes which shall empower them to do the great exploits.

And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits
[Dan 11:32]

It shall be as prophesied by Moses:
But if from thence you shall seek the LORD thy God, you shall find Him, 
if you seek Him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days,
if you turn to the Lord thy God, and shall be obedient unto His voice;  (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee,
nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He swore unto them.

For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there has been any such thing as this great thing is, or has been heard like it? [Deu 4:29-32]

The role of My true followers is crucial in witnessing of the evil and warning of coming judgments and sin, but also of My grace and mercy – a message of love and salvation and the forgiveness of sins through My Son Jesus (Y’shua), to all who will believe and receive, and thus repent with bitter tears and brokenness.

My covenant people are bought with a price by the sacrifice of My Son, in the blood of atonement.  The penalty of sin was cancelled upon the cross and the sins of the repentant are washed by His blood. Victory was assured after His burial by His resurrection and later, His ascension.  My elect are those who have prayed in all humility and made confession to Me, turning from wickedness.

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.
Now Mine eyes shall be open, and Mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. [2Chron 7:14, 15]

Surely as My people gather themselves unto Me in unity and pure love, so shall I bring forth a remnant, My elect, separated, obedient and fully dedicated unto Me.  These are those who lay down their lives in faith, trusting in their God, walking in the ways and very steps of their Messiah (Saviour).

These are the labourers I shall send forth.  Great change is indeed coming, as these rise up above the voices of defeat, unafraid of the powers of darkness, believing that by My Spirit they shall do great exploits, knowing that I am the same yesterday, today and forever.

Answered Prayers and Miracles

This is a time of revealing and many can bear witness. I who sees the heart know what you will pray for before you even ask.  Believe that I hear and know I shall answer.

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

They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.  [Is 65:24]

Many of My people have prayed and waited for My answer. Some are beginning to wonder if they heard from Me or not, and if so, then why is the answer long in coming?  Patience, for You well know that My timing is not your timing. 
If I told you a thing, then you must not doubt.  Faith pleases Me. Offering up thanksgiving as one, wholly confident in Me is faith in action. Trust must accompany faith.

Many have wearied in waiting and fail to guard their words; unbelief must be eliminated by faith.  You must persevere with patience, for you do not see all that I am doing or preparing behind the scenes. 

Do not destroy My work by your words of doubt or unbelief.  Even if your flesh tells you a thing is impossible, remember that nothing is impossible with Me. Guard your heart; guard your mouth. Trust Me and wait patiently. 

A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  [Prov 18:20, 21]

Speak life. Speak truth. Believe Me for I am not a man that I should lie.
God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: has He said, and shall He not do it? or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?  [Num 23:19]

Some of you have allowed doubt to delay My answers. You know what to do, yet you procrastinate in the matter. One can wait too long in doing and thus forfeit, but in My mercy and grace, I shall first warn you.  Yet also, be on guard and not fooled.

For remember, just as Peter tried to dissuade My Son from His mission of the cross, so others may try to dissuade you from your destiny.  Do not let Satan destroy that which I have told you shall be. I have given you signs so that you know, but the enemy will deceive you with trickery; he will work his craft against you.

Do not forget the adversary (Satan), who walks around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He is the thief who comes not but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  He will set his trap to snare you, not only with doubt, but with discouragement, imbalance, destructive thoughts and confusion.

You must stand on My promises and lift up the shield of faith.  You are not ignorant of his devices, yet remember his subtlety; remember his craftiness. He will even bring in others to lead you astray. Set your face as a flint to stand strong against the opinions of men (people), and the voice of the adversary.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood; but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. [Eph 6:10-13]

Walk with Me. Keep standing on firm ground (Rock), believe, trust and wait. Great change is indeed coming.  Satan and his minions bring change that masquerades as good (calling evil good and good evil). 

This must be for it has been prophesied. Resist the master of illusion, who will whisper negative words in your ears that sound right, but are poison. He seeks to destroy your faith and steal your destiny.  Keep your eyes on Me. Read My word so that you know My ways and are not tricked by the imitator, the great counterfeiter.

Take courage and rejoice, My people, for great changes are coming into your lives that you have indeed waited patiently for; answers to prayer, healing and restoration, deliverances, salvation and miracles.  But the greatest joy of all is salvation of one who repents.
Sealed by the blood of the Lamb slain 
Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.
  [Lk 15:10]

for His glory alone
