Paradigm Shift

For those who were not reading the blog back in 2012, this article was posted then. It was a three part series. I had been writing my testimony out for a couple of months and posting it.  The Lord had me interrupt the posting of the testimony to post Paradigm Shift.  

This mini-series, as well as my testimony, (First the Inside of the Cup), have been removed from this blog to move to my new website. That site will have a button on the menu for the blog. It is being worked on by me.  The site was designed to my specifications by NetMinistry. I am working on organizing the content to go on the site and will be given notice when it is ready. 

I have been led to repost this. Shalom in Y'shua.
Also, the link to the next radio broadcast is at the end of this article. - BP2015

Paradigm Shift

February 3, 2012 – [02.03.2012]
Can you still trust Me when you seemingly have no outward joy in life, faint hope and trials that seem never-ending?  Will you wait upon Me and wait for Me, when I am silent? 

Have you been in hiding or gone into hiding, just as Elijah was in hiding in a cave by Brook of Cherith?  Yes, David hid in caves as well.  Do you feel cut off from the world and everything worldly?  Do you feel cut off by others who have called themselves by My name?

Do you feel bound, hand and foot – desiring to go where I will send you, but unable to yet go, for I have not said where, when or how?  Do your hands feel inactive – desiring to do more, to do greater works, to be more empowered by My Holy Spirit? 

Do you feel that I have passed you over?  Do you wonder what you have done for Me that has pleased Me or been of any real significance?  Do you search your heart and weep because you seem so far from where you desire to be, or think you should be, yet you know that I have brought you far from where you once were?

Have you covered your mouth at times, unsure if you should speak forth that which is burning deep within?  Do you feel that when you do speak, it seems as though no one listens and those that do are few?   Is your spirit heavy; are you struggling to speak life over the aching of your shattered heart?  Do you feel at times as if your light is hidden under a bushel? 

Does it seem at times like your candle has been put out or very weak at best?  In a moment of weakness, do you feel as though your holiness is defiled?  Do you feel burnt out; sifted as wheat; misunderstood, unappreciated, profaned or weak?   Do you struggle within, desiring for it all to end?  Do you feel close to death or do you desire that your time here ends soon?  You have cried out like Job, like Elijah …

Let My people go, I spoke through Moses.  Unbind him and let him go, My Son Jesus/Y’shua spoke about Lazarus when he came forth from the grave.  Come out; come out from amongst them.

I have spoken to My people, come out of the tombs of the dead churches.  I have said to come out of Babylon; come out of Egypt; come out from the world; touch no unclean thing.  Be ye separate, for you are in the world, but not of this world.
As Lazarus, My people could not see ahead at first, nor were their steps sure.  Unbind them and let them go, I have said to the tormenting spirits.  Death must come, death to the old and you shall see My resurrection power in the new.

Shake off your heaviness and your multitude of sorrows, for I have not finished with My mercies towards you.  I shall be glorified.  When you bring forth in lamentation, sorrow and great labor, I shall give you rest, and ease your labor.

I shall strengthen you.  When you go into the field, laced by the woods, it is a place of solitude, yea, but you shall be shut in with Me.  Do not be afraid, nor let your heart be troubled.  I AM with you.  

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.  [Is 55: 12]

Travail and bring forth, for from the labor (great pain), miraculous victory is birthed.

Gethsemane and the Death Cry
In the days of His flesh, Y’shua offered up prayers and supplications with blood, sweat and strong tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death.  He was heard because of His reverence toward Me, His Father (Heb 5:7).

In Rev 12: 1, 5-6, you read where the woman flees to the wilderness, where she has a place prepared for her.  Cry out in your spirit, or even in your flesh and lament.  I shall be with you to bring you over to the promise; to bring you through to victory.  It is time.

There is a void in the hearts of the sufferers, there is a death cry that rises up from the lips of their spirit, yea, but I AM the God of salvation.  Sacrifice up the voice of praise and thanksgiving.  Yea, death is a lone journey, as is birth.  When turning from sin to repentance, there is a deathly groaning, a cry that comes forth from deep within a man’s soul, a horror in his flesh, as he enters the valley of death.

I AM He who will comfort you in your suffering.  In death, there is inward travail and outward conflict – so it is in birthing, there is inward travail and outward conflict, as a great shift takes place.  Satan comes to destroy the victory.   He can appear as a pharaoh, as he did in Egypt with Moses. 

He can appear as a Pontius Pilate, doing as Pilate did with Y’shua, as he washed his hands, endeavoring to cleanse himself outwardly of any responsibility and guilt.  Can you comprehend that Satan is resisting your victory?  He will oppose it to the limit of his power, for his power is limited by what I allow.  

Weep, Lament, Travail

 Like as a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs (outward conflict); so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.
We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.  [Is 26: 17, 18]

Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. (*note-compare with Rom 8:28)
 
A woman when she is in travail (inward travail) has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child (outward conflict), she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 
[Jn 16: 20,21]

Y’shua/ Jesus travailed with My plan of salvation, for He knew the work, the suffering and the sacrifice that only He could and would make.  The Garden of Gethsemane (oil press) was the beginning of His labor, the beginning of His crushing; the beginning of His ‘pouring out’.   

Yea, travail is pain.  You must go through it all, in dying to self, yet I AM with you.  Only through travail and labor can new life be birthed; a vision becomes reality!  

     Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
    Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? 
    for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. 

Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.   
[Is 66: 7-9]
Be in pain and labor awhile longer, you who are faint in spirit and weary of the pain.  Now you shall come forth, as Lazarus.  You shall dwell for a time in the field, amongst the trees… a place of solitude, yet the time of solitude is nearly over. (Think upon Job, Joseph, David…)

Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon; there shall you be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. 
[Mic 4:10]

This is My Will 

Are you greatly vexed in your spirit?  Are you brought very low?  Do you feel so very alone? Have you come to the end of yourself?  I looked upon your misery and considered your distress.  I answer your prayers.   Have you not prayed, ‘Not my will but Thy will, Father?’

Hold fast and pray, for the day comes when you shall say, ‘It is finished’.  If you are full of heaviness, greatly humbled, mourning sorely, full of lamentation, let your lamentation be heard on high.  Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help[Ps 22:11]

Bring forth with labor, for this victory is birthed after great sorrow.  Are you feeling very weary?  Bear up with good courage for that which has befallen you.  This is My will concerning you.  Arise and do!  Go through for joy comes in the morning.  

Remember Joseph who had been given two dreams with a great vision, yet everything seemingly (outwardly)went [appeared] wrong in his life from his youth until well into manhood, before the vision was birthed.  It was birthed after great sorrow and labouring as a prisoner.  Having been hated by his brothers, sold into slavery, poorly treated, yet oddly respected ('his God is with him'), falsely accused of trying to seduce Potiphar’s wife and wrongfully imprisoned.  
He was seemingly forgotten by the king’s cupbearer, who promised to say a good word to the king on Joseph’s behalf.  To many, it seemed as though he were forsaken by Me.

This is war, from the time of man’s fall, and there are endless battles, but I am the Lord of the battle.  Is the altar of your heart broken down?  Does it seem that your temple has been destroyed and defiled by man (people)?  Does the inner place seem laid waste?  Is the music and the song of your heart put to silence?  

Does your rejoicing seem to be put to an end?  Is your candle put out, or flickering faintly, with barely any strength?  Do you feel your holiness has been defiled by the things you are exposed to in the world; things you hear and things that pass before your eyes?   Yes, this is My perfect will for you, for I AM the Alpha and Omega; He who knows the end result from the beginning.  



-          End Part 1 – Paradigm Shift 

Paradigm Shift – Part 2


February 4, 2012 – [02.04.2012] 

In determining to understand a couple of things, the Lord led me.  In a paradigm shift, there comes an absolute change in a belief system, as well as in the way things are processed in our thoughts, our perception.  This allows a new condition to be created, with things that were previously unacceptable or considered impossible. 

This can be shaped by the choices of an individual or society or by ‘something’ (forces) beyond our control, or both.  It opposes what you normally believe or have understood.  I read somewhere (not sure where) that ‘when anomalies or inconsistencies arise within a given paradigm, presenting problems that we are unable to solve, our view of reality must change.’

We must be on guard because the Holy Spirit showed me that the way we express things in our faith, as disciples of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth (Y’shua Ha’Mashiach), is also the way that those who believe in a different god or different Jesus speak.  New agers, mystics, Luciferians and Satanists (for starters) speak very similar.   

They will speak of ‘the voice within’, ‘Father’, unity, love, destiny, paradigm shift, spiritual awakening, ‘voice of the spirit’ (not the most Holy Spirit, so which spirit?) and on it goes.  Danger, danger, danger!  Discernment!

We have to be so careful, truly!  We must cling to the Lord (I just cannot emphasize it or say it enough!) and we must cry out for repentance, as John the Baptist roared it forth.  This is most relevant today, as in the days of Noah, Jesus forewarned.

Also, about Gethsemane; the word is Aramaic, a dialect of the Hebrew language.  In Aramaic, it means ‘oil press’; in Hebrew, ‘pressing of the oil’.  In his book named, ‘Weight of the World, Ray Vander Laan explains: “Gethsemane was a stone column, under which bags of olives were laid and the weight of the column was allowed to exert a strong, steady pressure for  the oil to exude.” 
The garden of Gethsemane is a time of preparation; preparation for the death to self.  Jesus/Y’shua went to the garden at nighttime (in darkness).  He brought supporters (a few apostles – Peter, James and John [Mk 14:32, 33]) and asked them to pray for Him.  He had to go into the garden (the time of preparation) alone, but His faithful supporters fell asleep. 

In all His travailing, and as He poured His heart out to the Father, He submitted Himself.  He was suffering; He prostrated Himself and prayed.

 And He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as You will.
He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.  
[Mat26: 39,42]

We go through a dark season.  Many call it the ‘dark night of the soul’ and it is meant to be a good thing.  We come to see God, to know Him in a way we have not known Him before, if we do not give up, but go through.  He will strengthen us, only ask…  He will minister to us, as He did Jesus.

The difference is that Jesus/Y’shua was without sin, yet He knew that His death was a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, to reconcile sinful man back to a holy God/Yhvh.  Even Jesus/Y’shua needed to prepare for that which was ahead, the worst of His life… and the last; yet He also knew that He would be victorious after it all.

Remember, humility always precedes honor.

We have all fallen short of the glory of God.  This time of preparation, this darkness that comes upon us will shake us to the core.  It will be as a refiner’s fire and we (our flesh) will want out of that fire.  The Lord will allow this purifying to bring the dross to the surface.  It will hurt, but we will not be burned.  We must go through because He is doing a good work in us. He will strengthen us, just as He did Jesus.

    And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
    Saying, Father, if You be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not My will, but Thine, be done.
And there appeared an angel unto Him from heaven, strengthening Him.   
[Lk 22: 41-43]

Now to what the Lord led me to write…
__________________________

Garden of Gethsemane
As in the processes of dying and birthing, a paradigm shift is occurring, from that which was, to that which must be.  It begins in your own garden of Gethsemane.  Here is where great darkness falls upon the soul and spirit and the travailing begins.  The flesh cries out, not desiring to suffer and die.  

This is the point where many give up; they will only go so far, for as the rich man who could not part with his riches, so there are things that many of My people refuse to surrender.  Therefore, in love and mercy, I send forth chastisement, to see if they will endure correction.  Yet again, I shall purge My people and prune away many branches, to see if fruit will come forth in a new season.

This is where everything and everyone will seem to be against you; and things only seem to get worse – and darker; like a horrible pit full of miry (swampy) clay.  This is where you will either cry out to Me, or turn away.  Press in, endure, keep in the race, cling to Me, for I AM with you.

Immovable Faith

You will feel shaken, horribly shaken, but fear not.  Have I not said that all that can be shaken will be shaken?  Yes, you have heard this and you have read it in My word.  

This is a good work, if you understand the purpose.  The dross must be shaken loose, so it will surface, for dross is skimmed as it surfaces.  Your faith must be immovable.  Labor and travail, for it shall not be in vain.  Let your labor be done in fear and trembling. Trust Me. 

Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.  [Pro 25:4]

And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.  [Heb 12:27]

To those whose house is built upon the rock, though the winds blow and the house is shaken, it shall not fall.  Remain steadfast and unmovable in faith.  Lo, I am doing a good work.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. [1Cor 15:58]

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.  [Phil 2:28]

Who has not gone through these dark times?  All My people have gone through great darkness; yet in great travailing, weeping and praying, they persevere and go through.  In the shaking, your eyes shall be opened and you shall see all that is not of Me.  Will you trust Me through it all?
All that is not of Me shall surface and nothing shall remain secret. Let it go in repentance and believe in Me.  Submit yourself to Me, resist the enemy who seeks to keep you in bondage and he must flee.  I have chosen this furnace of affliction for you, yet it is for good, as you cling to Me and follow the leading of My holy Spirit in you.  Submit My child to the work I AM doing and fear not.

For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.  [Eccl 12:14]

For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. [Mk 4:22]

Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.  [Is 48:10]
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  
[Jam 4:7]

Cry out to Me and I hear you. My hand is not shortened that it cannot save, nor is My ear heavy that it cannot hear. [Is 59:1]
Though He slay me, yet will I trust in him:[…] [Job 13:15]

Who is among you that fears the LORD, that obeys the voice of his servant, that walks in darkness, and has no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God. [Is 50:10]

Forgiveness is Crucial

Let no bitterness, no strife, no hatred, no anger, no jealousy, no envying, let nothing that is not of Me be found in you.  Let forgiveness pour out from your heart, for it shall be a healing balm to you.  Think upon Saul and David.  Even when David knew he was anointed to be king and Saul sought to kill David, did My servant David rise up in pride?  Did he kill Saul when he had the chance?

No, he cut a piece of Saul’s robe one time, to let Saul know that he had the opportunity to kill him, but did not.  He submitted himself to Saul, who was still king and trusted Me to work things out.

David also arose afterward, and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, My lord the king. And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and bowed himself. (submission) [1Sam 24:8]

Behold, this day your eyes have seen how that the LORD had delivered thee today into my hand in the cave: and some bade (told) me kill thee: but my eye spared you; and I said, I will not put forth my hand against my lord; for he is the LORD'S anointed.  [1Sam 24:10]

 And he (Saul) said to David, You are more righteous than I: for you have rewarded me good, whereas I have rewarded you evil.
And you have shown this day how that you have dealt well with me: forasmuch as when the LORD had delivered me into your hand, you killed me not.  
[1Sam 24: 17,18]

Though he spoke fair words and understood the mercy David showed him, Saul did not genuinely repent.  Therefore, I say unto you, do not be as Saul.  Genuinely repent and believe, forgive and die to self; then shall you be raised up and become the new man.  I shall have a holy people, without spot or blemish.  Yea and if you fall, I say rise up, rise up again, and cry out to Me.

For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. [Pro24: 16]

Do Not Fear the Darkness

When the darkness comes upon you, as you go through the dark season, I shall shine My light upon your heart and reveal the secret things that you have not known are there.  Fear not; neither be dismayed or confounded.  Be strong and of good courage.  I work in the darkness; I work in ways you cannot see.

Your emotional condition is not necessarily your heart condition.  Allow this piercing of the heart, for out of the wound shall pour forth all that festers and infects you.  Surrender it into My hands with genuine repentance, believe and I shall heal you; you shall have a new heart.  I shall shine My light into the darkness, and shall shine light upon your heart.  Then shall you see clearly; then shall you know my glory in the face of My Son.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. [1Cor 4:6]

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.  
[Is 60:2]

My people must go through these dark times.  Many have despaired, been troubled, perplexed, cast down and cried out to Me.  Those whom I have raised up mightily went through the darkness that came upon them.  They cried out to Me, yet felt so helpless, alone and abandoned, not understanding the times of My silence.  If you fall, rise back up again.  Repent and believe and let your faith hold fast to Me.

Think upon My friend Abraham, after I told him about the son that he would have, and that he would be the father of many nations.  What happened?

And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him [Gen 15:12]

Did Moses fear the darkness or did he know that even in the darkness, he would find Me?

And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. [Ex 20:21]

And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.
These words the LORD spoke unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me. [Deu 4:11 – Deu 5:22]

Think upon the apple of My eye, David.  Did he not travail in times of the darkness that came upon his soul?  Did he not feel so alone?

O LORD, why do you cast my soul away?  Why do you hide your face from me?  Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless [Psalm 88:14,15]

Then said Solomon, The LORD has said that He would dwell in the thick darkness[2Chron 6: 1] 

He has fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and He has set darkness in my paths.  [Job 19:8]

You have laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps. Lover and friend have you put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness
[Ps 88:6, 18]

Two godly men who feared and obeyed God wrote about their dark time - their dark night of the soul.  Oswald Chambers wrote a poem called, ‘Dark Night of the Soul’, in his book, ‘Abandoned by God’.

Cut it off. My heart is bleeding,
And my spirit’s wrung in pain,
Yet I hear my Jesus pleading,
Cut it off or all is vain.

So I’ve stopped my ears in terror
Lest self-pity make me quail,
Lest at last I take the error
And God’s purpose thwart and fail.

I am bowed to death in sadness,
For the pain is all too great,
But the dear Lord must find pleasure
In the way He maketh straight.

In the late 1600s, François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon, often called Francois Fenelon was a French Catholic archbishop, theologian, poet and writer.  He wrote: His [God’s] transformation is done on the cross in darkness, poverty and death.

Think upon Elijah, Job, Moses and Paul.  Have you felt as they did?  Have you wanted Me to take you away from the earth?  Have you despaired desperately?  Yes, you have.  Lo, I AM with you.

But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. [1Kin19: 4]

What happened? A paradigm shift… An angel came, touched him and Elijah went on his journey with new strength (new hope) after eating ‘meat’ that I sent.
And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God. [1Kin 19: 7, 8] 

Moses, who was faithful and meek, despaired over the constant complaining and bitterness of the people.  Now the Israelites were not satisfied with manna anymore; they wanted meat.  It seemed more than Moses could bear because the people never seemed satisfied and were angry with him.  He wanted to die.

I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. And if you deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness. [Num11: 14,15]

What happened?  A paradigm shift…  I commanded Moses to gather seventy men of the elders of Israel, and I put the spirit that had been upon Moses upon them, so that Moses should not bear the burden of the people alone, and the seventy prophesied throughout the camp.  Then I answered his prayer and sent meat to the people, but the lust of their flesh did anger me.  [Num 11:25, 31- 33]

Even the apostles despaired at times and desired to leave this life.

For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: [2Cor 1:8]

 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; [2Cor4: 8,9]

Yet again, a paradigm shift took place, as once again My people were strengthened…

But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  [2Cor 15: 57]

So shall it be with My people who persevere, who go through the dark seasons, who cry out in repentance, if there be need in any area for repentance.  Yea, cry out to Me and I shall strengthen you as you go through purging and purification. 

End of Part 2 - Paradigm Shift

 Paradigm Shift - Part 3
February 5, 2012 - [02.05.2012]

There is much occurring in these last days, in the physical realm and in the spiritual.  Many have suffered many years, going from faith to faith and glory to glory, learning obedience by the things they suffered, just as My Son Jesus did.

Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered;  And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him; [Heb5: 8,9]

    Multitudes have prayed for many years for true revival to come upon all nations.  It shall come, not as the appearance of the false revivals, where unclean spirits cause the people to do everything except genuinely repent, looking to the Lamb slain. 

    True revival begins within My people.  A paradigm shift is occurring where miracles shall abound; multitudes shall know the weight of My glory upon them, causing them to cry out to Jesus/Y’shua, My Son, whose blood was poured out to save them.

    As in the days when My Son walked upon the earth, people will come from far and wide for salvation, deliverance, healing and restoration.  Their hearts shall be pierced and they shall cry out to Me, for the weight of their iniquities will break their hearts.  Their heart shall be broken and contrite. They will look to the Savior and not to any man.
But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them them mourning, every one for his iniquity.  [Ezek 7:16]

    Multitudes will turn their hearts as My judgments pass over each and every nation.  My hand has not been slack concerning the promise (of My Son’s return), as some men count slackness, but I have been longsuffering, for I am not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  [2Pet3:9]

    Yet, I have risen from My throne in righteous anger, declaring, Enough is enough!  It has been prophesied by My prophets that in the last days My judgment shall be upon all nations.  Repent (change your mind) and draw nigh unto Me with a broken and contrite heart; in spirit and in truth.

    A paradigm shift is occurring…My people will move from areas of unbelief to steadfast faith, expecting to see the greater works as My Son prophesied, expecting to see miracles such as have never been seen before.  My Son said, “Greater works… [because I go to the Father]”.

    From children to the elderly, miracles will go forth through My vessels of honor, to those who are empowered by My Holy Spirit, and who have Christ reigning upon the throne of their heart.  Many who have been hidden away shall come forth into plain view.  Many, who call themselves by My name shall hate them, persecute them and seek to destroy them, but they have no power over them.  

    Those who have enjoyed the riches taken from My people; greedy shepherds who robbed the flocks shall be brought low.  They shall try to rise again but shall not, for My hand will keep them in the place of lowliness.

    Those who prophesied lies in My name shall reap great sorrow, for shame shall come upon their heads.  The prophets who spoke things to win the people to them, but did not speak that which they heard from Me, will be known by the blood upon their hands.  When did they turn the people to the Lamb slain?  When did they cry and travail for the wayward ones?  When did they cry out to Me for mercy for their sinful nation?

    When were they concerned for the souls of the people, to warn them of the lake of fire and the second death?  When did they put aside their reputation to urge them to repent, warning the people of coming judgment, as Jonah did?  Who dared to sell that which they heard from Me for a price that was grievous for the people to pay? 

    Woe to those who have robbed the poor and hungry!  Woe to those who kept the people at ease, so as not to offend, knowing that the very souls of the lost were held captive, in bondage and deceived!

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! [Is 5:20]

And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the LORD, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish; I, the LORD, have spoken and have done it. 
[Ezek 17:24]

Indeed, a paradigm shift has been and is occurring.  That which is on high shall be brought low; that which is low shall be exalted.  That which is green shall dry up; that which is dry shall flourish.  I, the LORD, have spoken and have done it and am doing it.  Selah

Be aware; a paradigm shift is occurring… 

    Those who speak forth truth, setting their face as a flint, aching for the souls of the lost to be set free and saved; crying out for their repentance and pointing the way to Jesus/Y’shua the Christ of Nazareth, these shall be raised up.  These are those who cry out to Me in the secret place for all the nations of the world. 

    These are those who burn with a desire to preach good tidings to the meek, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 
    To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance that fast approaches.  They long to comfort all that mourn and to give them beauty for ashes; and the oil of joy for mourning. [Is 61:1-3]  They lead by example and esteem others greater than themselves.

Indeed, great revival and mighty miracles are soon here.  

But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him. [1Cor2:9]

I have been preparing My people; many have learned to walk in obedience, loving mercy and walking humbly before Me.  Many have been waiting years for salvation to come to their loved ones, to see deliverance, to see multitudes healed, to see the restoration of many things and to see the visions they were given come to pass.  “How long, o Lord?”  They have cried out.  It is fast approaching.  

True revival and miracles shall soon manifest.  I have heard the prayers and seen the fasting that My people have endured and once again, it shall be heard:

For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, 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 4:32]

A paradigm shift is occurring…

Nations that have had the freedom of reading My word and hearing those who prophesy in My name shall lose this freedom, for many put their hands to their ears saying, I do not want to hear.

 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:  [Amos 8:11]

The mighty nation shall fall; her leaders shall not rise again, for the stench of their sins has come up into My nostrils.  I sent My messengers to call them to repentance and they would not hear.  They persecuted them, imprisoned them, beat them and killed them and still, I sent more messengers.  The battle shall increase and great shall be the death and destruction upon the land, for the people have hardened their hearts and turned from Me.

For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. [Mk 13:19]

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. [Mat 24:21]

Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment upon the graven images of Babylon: and her whole land shall be confounded, and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.  [Jer 41:47]

He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remains and is besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish My fury upon them. [Ezek 6:12]

So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are  upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground  [Ezek 38:20]

All the heavens and all the earth have begun their groaning and travailing, as strange occurrences are seen in both.  Keep your eyes upon the heavens; watch and pray.  Cleave to Jesus, My people, for My Son is soon returning.  I have revealed the things which must come; I have not held back, for even the heathen know danger is lurking.   

Time is shorter than ever and still the people say in their pride, “We have heard this all before, trying to make us fear.  We are not afraid; come what may!”  Woe to those who wear the crown of pride! 

Still the people long to repeat history, for once again, the people mock, reject and murmur about the warnings:  And saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  [2Pet 3:4]

Keep reaching out to the lost, My people, for soon many shall be mourning for their iniquities, but so many, including My own people, will not heed the warnings.  They have not discerned the time or the lateness of the hour.

Yet now is the time that many will begin to discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves Me and him that serves Me not." 
[Mal 3:18]

Even amongst My own people, many have not got a reserve of oil for their lamps.  It is almost the midnight hour.  Did you not hear the watchmen as they cried out and continue to cry out?  

Many watchmen are warning of approaching danger, and many other watchmen are crying out:  “Arise!  Arise!  The Bridegroom is coming!  Awake, arise!”…but many sleep on and that which is coming shall come suddenly, like a thief in the night.  Selah

Great revival and miracles, the likes of which have never been seen before are about to manifest.  Yea, but so shall great destruction, death and sorrow fall upon the wicked nations.  Again, I call you to repent and return to Me.  Will you hear or will you toss a hand, pushing away the very warning.  The day must come… that day is almost here.

Indeed, a paradigm shift is occurring, the likes of which has never been seen before, nor shall ever be again.  

To My people I say:
Because your heart was tender, and you did humble yourself before Me [God/Yhvh], when you heard His words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbled thyself before Me, and did rend (tear) your clothes, and weep before Me; I have even heard you also, saith the LORD.  
 [2Chro 34:27] 

Arise, shine, for thy light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon thee. [Is 60:1]

Expect the paradigm shift, for Jesus forewarned as He prophesied.  He warned about the signs and what to look for.  Be at peace in Christ, for it is not a peace that the world gives, but a peace that passes all understanding.

Fear not; I AM your shield and your exceeding great reward.  And shall say unto them, Hear, (O Israel), ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; [Deu 3:22]

Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.   
[1Chron 28:20]

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. [Acts 27:24]

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. [Ps 20:7]

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him. [Nahum 1:7]

There will be those who will not believe this paradigm shift; but all around them will be a two-fold reality… revival and miracles, the likes of which have never been seen before, and running parallel shall be war, death, destruction, calamities caused by both nature and man (the clash of the kingdoms) , yet (brought forth; allowed) by My hand of judgment.

Woe to those who remain behind for when the ‘day of the Lord’ is upon them.  Woe to those who remain behind for the day of the Lord!  Woe, I say, woe.  

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 
[Jn 5:25; 28-29]

Again, I say to those who trust in Me, fear not that which you see around you in the great tribulation.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. [Mat 10:28]

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. [Rev 12:11] 

Fear not My people, for you shall not have to endure the day of the Lord, for you are Mine.  Prepare, check your lamps… the Bridegroom approaches.   

The paradigm shift is occurring…

(Note* - This is the end of the article called “Paradigm Shift” that was published (posted) over three years ago, February 3 – 5, 2012. I merely would like to add that I believe that the Great Tribulation and the day of the Lord are two separate epochs (dates) in God’s timeline. Seek the Lord on it for yourself and He will reveal. BP2015)

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.  
[Joel 2:31, 32]

for His glory
