Need to Know Yesterday - Part THREE

If not already read, please begin at Part ONE and Part TWO

Universal Providence
There are those who feel some disappointment when they come to the website and nothing has been posted for a time. I understand that. But I would ask the reader to hear this. You see, I am not competing with anyone. Popularity is not what I seek.

It is more important that what I write is what would be beneficial to others, and what will glorify God. It has to be led of the Lord; it has to be His counsel and wisdom, not mine. That takes time with Him, despite today’s fast-paced world.
Even as I write now, tears are drying upon my cheeks. Why? 
Prayer…I have been in much prayer over certain people and certain things, but also there was time spent with concerns for people, God’s people, the sheep (mature in Christ), the lambs (new believers), as well as the unsaved, or the deceived, who are following other gods, or even another Jesus that the one the Bible reveals.

Prayers, not just for those who are close to me and those I know, but also people I don’t know, who take time to write me. I also pray for those who visit the blog and for those who are suffering in all nations around the world. There were also prayers regarding false prophets and teachers.
They know the Word of God, yet they are deceived and deceive others – the lambs (new believers) will be devoured by these wolves in sheep’s clothing. There are sheep that will follow after them, having their eyes blinded and ears deafened. They are as the blind following after the blind and they shall fall together into the ditch (or over a precipice).

I had checked to see how many countries there are in the world and found the top answer to be 195 and 196 – the apparent reason being that Taiwan (a province which broke away from People’s Republic of China) is only considered an officially independent nation by some countries. That is why the discrepancy in numbers.
So, if there are 196 countries in the world, with a population of 7.4 billion as we enter into 2016 AD, God is watching over all of them and knows all that is going on over all the earth. As a Spirit-filled believer, my heart goes out to all nations of the world, and the brethren within the nations are of a deep concern also.

When I first began this blog back in 2008 (I’ve removed many articles – 5 years worth, from 2008 – 2012 inclusive to move to another site, which I may not be able to do), I naively thought only the Westerners might come to the blog.
Despite the fact that this is the internet, that was what I thought, but I was wrong because the stats clearly show me otherwise. When I realized that error, a deeper concern came upon me.

“Father, how do I reach the hearts of people who come from different cultures, different traditions, different languages, who do not think like Westerners think? What of nations who have hardships of war, genocide, cataclysmic events and many other things in their lives that we do live with day to day?

What of those who are in danger of imprisonment, displacement, beheadings, crucifixions, assassinations, cruel and harsh punishments by law, executions, (drug offenders-Australians, Nigerians, Brazilian and Indonesian), under heavy rule?” “What of those who live every day wondering if a bomb, or a mine, or terrorists, or a drone strike might happen upon them at any given moment?”

“How do I reach those who worship a false god, a god that is real to them, even if that god does not answer their prayers? How to I show them the truth and the way back to You, the true and only God? How did the world fall so far away from You?” –the list is long and exhaustive.

While it is true that Westerners do not wake up each day under the hardships of war (bombs, missiles, drones etc) at this time, as in many countries in the Eastern part of the world do today, millions of westerners have known war or been enlisted and fought in wars. The Americas (North (Greenland, Caribbean Islands/West Indies), South and Central) have all had internal conflicts (civil and political) and wars, assassinations, bombings and acts of terrorism, and the possible threat of drone strikes on American soil.

Genocide and slavery (Canada, United States, Central and S. America), beheadings (Canada shocked 2008; United States; warnings of Daesh) [Note* - The two beheading examples in Canada and the U.S. posted here were completely unrelated to either Muslim or ISIS.- BP)

The lists on this could also be endless, even going back to the time of the beginning. God’s people are scattered throughout the nations of the world. The Lord desires that ALL should come to repentance.

Yes, repentance to God and to be saved through faith, believing in Jesus Christ (Yeshua) and all He accomplished by being crucified upon the cross (death, burial, resurrection).  There is a choice to be made - eternal life or the second death in the lake of fire (which had been reserved for Satan and the fallen angels)?

We know that not all will be saved, but as believers, our hearts should be to reach out to others, praying to be labourers in the harvest of souls. Satan is an enemy of every man, woman and child upon the face of this earth. That is why I weep when I pray:

Heart of the Father – A Sincere Prayer

“Lord, You are Creator of all and Your love for Your creation is great; even greater is Your love for the people of the world. Your heart is that all should repent, forsaking sin and return to You through Your Son, Jesus Christ.
But we have become corrupted, evil in our ways. Our thinking and attitudes, our behaviour and actions are far from Your ways. Many have their conscience seared; numerous are falling into apostasy and heresy.

Love is waxing cold, hearts are becoming hard and necks are becoming stiffened. Many, even Christians, are turning a blind eye to so much and countless others (fed up with the hypocrisy being found even in Christian circles) stop their ears from hearing of a loving God, or the way of salvation You provided through Christ.

Every religion, including Christianity, has been infiltrated by the enemy. Witchcraft abounds, as do the false gods, false Christs and the false prophets (who teach the traditions of men and doctrines of demons), just as it is written in Your Word (Bible).

Forgive us, Lord. Forgive me, for any way that we (I) may have fallen for any of Satan’s lies or that of those, his ‘ministers who appear as ministers of righteousness’. Open our eyes to see and our ears of understanding to hear. Break up any fallow (hard) ground in our hearts and purge us, so we may be without spot or blemish. We do not want to be as a mule or horse, having to be led by a bit.

Lord, I am no one of consequence; I am but a mere woman. Let not my words on these pages be words that come from the flesh, which will avail nothing.  May Your Holy Spirit guide me in choosing the words to speak forth, sharing the message that You would have me share at this time in history.
I realize that You have many who are voicing the true words from You Father and that I may well be just one of the last runners in the relay race. Yet, I thank You Lord for revealing that there are times that the last runners can be the deciding factor, can be the one whose performance (fruit) determines if the race is won.

You alone are glorified through Jesus (Yeshua) and may people of all nations, if they come across these pages, repent and choose to believe in Jesus Christ, if there is need of repentance. May all nations, all peoples, all tribes and clans around this world, upon this earth, have their eyes opened to see, their ears open to hear and their hearts able to understand the lateness of the hour and their need to be right with you in every way (myself included).
Purge, purify, edify, strengthen the hearts and spirit of people who look to the Messiah; may they look to You alone with thanksgiving, praise and honour that You so rightly deserve, for You are our first love. I cannot save them Father, for I too need salvation. Others cannot save them Lord, for all of mankind has need of the Saviour, Jesus-Yeshua.

Father, people all over the world are hurting, suffering, in need of Your return. Hear our cries for an end to this madness and evil. Ah Lord, tear up and destroy every bitter root, burn up the stubble of it by Your Holy Spirit, where not even the ashes of bitterness remain. Fill hearts with Your love that we will turn and truly forgive those who first plowed the poisoned seeds of bitterness deep within the soil of a crushed heart.

Show us and teach us how to forgive the wickedness, cruelty and unrighteousness of the offender’s sins against us that watered the seeds, causing a bitter root to grow. Help us Lord, so that we do not repay evil for evil. May we understand that vengeance is Yours and You will repay each man according to his works.
We must forgive so that we can be forgiven of our own sins and wrongdoing to others. O God, it is Your will that in all of our forgiving, we must forgive ourselves also, in order to go forward with confidence in You, in new-found freedom, in peace and in strength.

This we must do, but Father, this is the hardest part. Help us to overcome and do this, not by might, nor by power but by Your Spirit, Lord. May Your love fill the void that hatred left behind and may the peace that passes all understanding be our joy and our portion.

May the hopeless soul find hope; the discouraged soul find courage; the lonely soul find fellowship with You; the grieving soul find comfort and the weary soul find renewed strength,  when time is spent with You.

May we rise up with one body, one mind, one faith in Jesus. May we be united in love, not the false unity that the world offers which is fleshly and temporary, but the unity that is eternal, that knits us together in one Spirit (holy Spirit), united in love for one another (Your love in us).
Keep the flock together and if there be one who has gone astray, we ask that You will leave the ninety-nine righteous to find the one feeling forsaken and lost, as it is written. Jesus, Yeshua, You are the one hope of our calling.

I give thanks for all these things Lord. I also ask that in all that I say and do, and in all who call themselves by Your name be said and done in truth and truth alone. We do not desire to dishonor You in any way.

Put a wall of fire, a shield, a hedge of protection around Your people Lord, so that we will not be deceived. Lord, You said that if we ask for bread, You will not give us a stone, or if we ask for fish, You will not give us a serpent. So with boldness Lord, we ask that we not be deceived nor led astray.

Remind us often to keep on the armour of light (God’s armour); to pray always, to stay close to You, abiding, so that we come to know and hear only Your voice and follow only after our Good Shepherd, Jesus.
Keep us as one Body in Christ Jesus (His flock), so that You Father, the one True, Faithful and Living God are glorified. You are the Creator of the heavens and all that is therein, including the heavenly hosts, all the earth and all that is in therein, You alone deserve glory.

Send forth the labourers into bring in the harvest, to reap of all nations of the earth, for Your love abounds over all the earth. Draw people to Yourself with Your goodness, for it is Your goodness that draws people to repentance.

Remove the scales from eyes, unplug the ears, break up the fallow ground of hardened hearts. Send forth the former and latter rains to fall where drought has left parched and thirsty lands, and dry up the lands where putrid waters have overwhelmed the people.

Reveal the enemy and his armies; reveal his plot and hatred against mankind. Fulfill Your Word - hasten Your return. Maranatha, maranatha – we desperately need Your return and intervention. Hear the cries of the people of all nations who ask, ‘Where are You, God? Do You not care?’ We need You, Lord!

Keep those who trust, obey and hold fast to You Jesus, from deception. In Your name Lord, I pray.  Be pleased Father in the good work that You alone have done. Amen and amen

The Real Warfare
Satan has his armies, both in the spiritual realm and the physical realm. This is obvious, not only in a time such as this, as we see it this day in places all over the earth, but since the beginning, it has been so. There has always been such violence upon the earth. It seems that the wicked rule, but it is not forever. Their rule is temporary. Their days are numbered; they seal their own destruction.

The first time, water destroyed all the wicked upon the earth (the Great Flood in Noah’s day, where only eight souls were saved alive [1Pet 3:20). The next time shall be by fire, the earth will be shaken, and the heavens shall be greatly disturbed, and the elements melt with fervent heat; the earth and all the works therein burnt up. [2Pet 3:10-12]

We are without doubt in the last of the last days. I know; I realize that every generation has thought the return of the Lord was imminent. Error, division, corruption and witchcraft have all entered into and thrive in the Christian community and are rampant in many of today’s churches (not all; but a majority).

Yet, if the last days began in the time of the apostles, then how much closer are we now?  Even the false prophets have gotten wise and say that no one knows the day or the hour. Satan indeed is the author of confusion, the creator of deception.

But the study of Biblical eschatology can help guide us and Jesus told us what signs to look for.  We cannot rush or force God’s hand (as some have tried and are trying to do), but neither should we ignore the signs that Jesus gave us (Matthew 24).  
In Revelation 19 verse 10, the angel tells the apostle John that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. Even when the prophets of old spoke, moved by the (Holy) Spirit of God, warning people of what was to come (God’s judgment), the purpose was not only that people would understand the justice and righteousness of the Creator, but that they would turn from sinful wickedness and repent, confessing their sins to a holy and just God!

Today it is the same, in that when people speak prophetic words of things to come, it is not for the purpose of fear, nor is it fortune-telling for filthy lucre. Rather, it is a fore-telling, a forewarning of God’s impending judgment and coming danger. The purpose is the same. Turn (change of heart) from unrighteousness, repent and be saved through Jesus Christ (Saviour and Lord) and His righteousness.

Even the false prophets have learned to use the word repent, but you must discern if the Jesus they mention (if they do) is the Jesus of the Bible. The cross is rarely mentioned and the blood of the Lamb that was spilled for the redemption of sins of mankind is not highlighted. Obedience may be mentioned, but be sure that the god they tell you to obey is the God of the Bible.

Do they tell you that Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father?  What of the Blood of the Lamb, the blood poured out willingly as a sacrificial offering for the forgiveness of sins? Do they mention the cross and the blood of the Lamb? Do they exalt themselves, their teaching or the Lord Jesus?

O beware, beware! With the advent of the internet, the wolves have become as wise as the foxes. Why, o why do you think Jesus warned that if it were possible, even the elect would be deceived? Study the Word of God; let it be written upon your hearts, but equally important, spend time with the Lord in prayer.

Come to know Him more and more. The true Jesus will never conflict with His written Word. Keep on the full armour of God. Know the adversary Satan and his followers. Hold fast to your faith in Jesus, no matter what comes against you.

Selah

The purpose of prophecy is to warn the people of God’s judgment upon the lands of the earth, to stir up the hearts to get right with God (repent) and to seek Jesus. In times past, as I was learning, I used to think that prophetic words given to me were for Canada or America. The Lord revealed to me that I must not be so small-minded, for He is Sovereign over all the earth.

I thank Him for His patience as we learn, but also for the love He has for the people of all nations, and the desire that all will come to repentance through His Son, Jesus the Messiah.

With that in mind, I am led to repost a prophetic word that was written while I was still in the United States. Instead of looking at it for just a word to the people of the Western hemisphere, look at it as a prophetic word to the nations of the world, as it was intended in the first place (but I had to learn).

The Lord had given me a word, which was posted the day after Obama was reelected as president of the United States. It is so much clearer now, but that is God and none other. I repost it here for the discernment of the reader and to the glory of God alone. I cannot, dare not and will not touch His glory!
                                                -----------------------
 November 7, 2012 - [11.7.12] - 5:06 am

I awoke at 4:30.  That which you will read below came to me over a course of four and a half hours.  When I woke up, I saw that Obama had won and I heard:

Now It Begins
Now it begins…brace yourselves for great evil.  Nothing happens that I do not allow.  I set kings up, I build and I pluck down.

While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from you. (Ichabod!)

And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make you to eat grass as oxen, and seven times (7 years) shall pass over you, until you know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will.  [Dan 4:31, 32]


    Then said Pilate unto Him, Speak You not unto me? know You not that I have power to crucify You, and have power to release You?
Jesus answered, You could have no power at all against Me, except it were given you from above: therefore he that delivers Me unto you has the greater sin.  [Jn 19:10, 11]

A Great Divide
There is a great divide amongst the people and anger and rebellion is stirred up as a troubled hornet’s nest.  There are plots against the ‘king’ to 'take him down', for many see his disloyalty to Israel, and many feel he has betrayed their country (United States).  Plans to take him down will seemingly work out to be successful, but will not; plans shall be overturned when least expected.

(Note* - I understood that plans made would never see fruition, not even be carried out, but another will eventually take his place of power.)

Backbone Broken – West in Great Pain

Yesterday morning, I awoke and heard, “The west shall be in great pain; they will be greatly hurt.  The backbone of America is broken; it is severely fractured.”  I asked a friend what the ‘backbone of America’ was, since I am not American.

I personally wondered if it meant a physical division upon the land, due to some cataclysmic event, but I also wondered if it meant a divide amongst the people.  My American friend was not sure what the 'backbone' of the country is, but wondered if it meant economically or geographically.  

Economically is already well understood (eventual collapse of dollar coming globally)…geographically, the best that could be understood either pertained to the Continental Divide, which involves the watersheds of Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, or whether the divide (backbone) is the New Madrid, which would split the country basically in half.

One other thought that I have had since is that the backbone of America is its Union, the uniting of all the states, for the country to become the ‘United States’.  If the Union is the backbone and it is broken, fractured, that would mean that the Union (or UNITY) is broken, which would once again mean civil war
Something even worse must happen than has already happened, to make the people haul out guns and fight like the civil war in the 1800s.  Smaller events of civil unrest have been seen in incidents like the LA riots and the Occupy movement (the latter has fizzled out), but more comes.

I do believe civil war is coming. I do believe people are going to be divided and I think the government suspects an insurrection also, which is why they have stocked up on hollow point bullets, along with a vast supply of arsenal and weaponry.

Walk in Confidence

My people have been pressing in and abiding.  I have heard your prayers.  Do not walk in fear, walk in confidence knowing that I AM God.  I am the Creator of all the earth.  Despite the doubts of many, My Sovereignty (power, authority) rules over all the earth.

Now come the days of great woes, great sorrow, yet also come the great blessings that many have patiently waited for.  O America, America…O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, o nations of the world…I would have gathered you under My wing, but you would not, you would not, you would not.

My people, do not join ranks with those who entertain violence and rebellion.  Many will take up weapons and seek to take down that which displeases them.
My people will not pick up the sword, for they know that they do not "war against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."  [Eph 6:12]

Cling to Me and I shall direct your steps.  No matter what you see, hear or read, do not be soon shaken.  Trust in Me.

Voices mumble in secret; plots are unfolding, as men seek to take down an empire to establish their own order of things.  Many seek to uproot the kingdom, take down the king(s) and destroy his (their) work, believing that their rule will be better.

There shall indeed be an uprising and a taking down, yet what is expected will not be what they intended, for they have forgotten who I AM.

They have set up kings (leaders), but not of Me: they have made princes and I knew it not (did not choose them): of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.  [Hos 8:4]

Hear, o ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel.  [Jdg 5:3]

They meet secretly, devising their plans.  I allow what I allow, for that which was written shall come to pass.  I shall not strive with man forever. 

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 whereto I sent it.  [Is 55:11]

O America, O Jerusalem (O Nations of the World)
Woe to those who plot and plan evil; woe to those who seek to take matters into their own hands.  Many use My name to conduct their evil, but the god they serve is not Me.  Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.

Plots are against Israel, yet the hatred for America has escalated and is measured in great proportion. A plot is against every nation of the world. The wicked rule by the sword; they rule by that which pierces the flesh and destroys.  The wicked are pleased with their weaponry.  With one voice and one arm, their pride strengthens them to conquer and to take into captivity.

If a nation shall not repent of its evil ways, I shall allow evil armies to overtakeGreat destruction comes as the heavens and the earth obey My commands.  My wrath is stirred up, yea, the devil has come down, who has wrath of his own, for he knows his time is short.  

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]

(We are not to confuse God’s wrath [Is 16:6; Jer 10:10].  Satan's wrath is upon all nations and the world also. He seeks to destroy the earth and mankind. Many confuse Satan's wrath with God's, but it is all part of a greater plan.)


What has been written shall be!  It has begun…  Fear not, My people, for a remnant shall escape.  Hold fast to Me.  Be at peace within, not the peace that the world gives, for no peace remains upon this earth.  It is filled with hatred, rebellion, greed and rioting, as in the days of Noah.

Be still and know that I AM God.  I have shown grace and mercy to those who have repented.  Trust and hold fast to your faith.  Be quick to listen and obey My commandments; forsake them not, so that all will go well with you.


     Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

     And now for a little space grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in His holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

     For we were bondmen; yet our God has not forsaken us in our bondage, but has extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.  [Ezr 9:7-9]

Fear not, My people, for fear is for those who do not know Me, for those who do not trust in Me.  Those who are Mine, wait upon Me.  Be filled to overflowing with My Spirit; keep your lamp full.  Hide in My Christ in the secret place that few enter.

Thus says the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is His name; Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.  [Jer 33:2, 3]

The War Room
And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea (eastward), heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them anymore, because of the children of Israel.  
[Jos 5:1]

And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.  [Jos 11:5]

Those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying.  Fear not those who burn incense to Baal, to the sun and to the moon, and to the planets and to all the hosts of heaven, for I shall put down the idolatrous ones in My timing.
There is a season when it seems evil triumphs, but hold fast, for I AM that I AM.  All has been foreordained.  My plans shall be carried out, for judgment is upon the earth and all nations.

There is a plan to divide and conquer.  Woe to those who shall be visited by My wrath, for the ‘day of the Lord’ fast approaches!

Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his dominion.  [Jer 51:28]
Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes (Iran): for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of His temple.

    Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the LORD has both devised and done that which He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.

O you that dwells upon many waters, abundant in treasures, your end is come, and the measure of your covetousness.  [Jer 51:11-13]


     Because the LORD has spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered: Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken: for the LORD God of recompenses shall surely requite (reward, avenge).

     And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.  Thus says the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.  [Jer 51:55-58]

We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reaches unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.  Destruction and judgment comes upon the whole earth.  For I shall create a new heaven and a new earth, and My people shall dwell in the new Jerusalem. 

The LORD has brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God.  [Jer 51:9, 10]

Greater Works

There are those of My people who shall shine forth, for now also approaches the time of the greater works, the blessings and miracles.  They shall run parallel, for great destruction and great miracles abound, as the clash of the kingdoms occurs.

You, who have been downtrodden, weary and in despair, sitting in the dust as did Israel, arise with new hope.


     Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. 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 you. [Is 60:1, 2]  Selah

for His glory

(End of 2012 prophecy)

Note* - One month and five days after the Lord spoke this:

-  the Sandy Hook shooting on December 12, 2012 occurred


-  absorbing al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups, it is announced that a new group is established, which will be known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant(Syria)) April 2013

ONLY GOD knows these things; only God knows the end from the beginning.

(Note* - added January 2016: I personally believe that we cannot do greater works than Jesus as far as miracles go. He cast out demons, healed the sick, calmed the storms, turned water into wine, raised the dead. We can do what He said we can do, which is "in My name, heal the sick, raise the dead, heal the lepers, cast out demons. FREELY you have received, freely give." [Mat 10:8]

Too many are coming out with teachings that use words like the "chosen", the "remnant" )Satan is the author of confusion) and are saying that we are going to be transformed into glorified 'super-humans' (that's not how they word it, but I am leading up to this with false prophecies)

Nevertheless, I believe the works are greater that Jesus spoke about because we can reach more people at one time; radio, TV, internet, social media platforms, plus we have the ability to travel to around fast and to far-away places. Compared to 2,000 years ago, these are certainly greater works. Something to consider... BP) 

(Note added: February 2016 - how we need each other, brethren. A sister in Christ (thank you Donna L.) stretched my small view. She mentioned the weapons in this day and age, and how God could protect people from its harms and effects. 

The Lord may well have certain ones of His people be vessels for His power and glory to work through to heal people of injuries, diseases etc brought about by radiation, fall-out and more. Diseases and conditions that did not exist in the day of Jesus (Yeshua) will be healed. This perspective does explain 'greater works'.

Yet, no "person" heals, delivers or restores. We are but clay; flesh and blood. It is God's Spirit (His power) that does these things. Without Jesus, without God Almighty, we can do nothing.

So much is coming...such horrific and incredulous things, just as foretold in the Holy Scriptures. Yet, I have every confidence that there are also astronomical, never before seen miracles, signs and wonders coming also.

We MUST abide in Christ with faith and belief, with trust and in obedience. That is the remnant. The remnant are those who so this (faith, trust, obedience) and they are found in every nation; God's people are scattered around the world. Denomination, race or gender have nothing to do with it. We are God's people and we are members of the Body of Christ Jesus (Yeshua).

We will not suffer God's wrath; perhaps the devil's wrath (as written in Rev 12:12], which explains the tragedies, disasters and calamities, corruption, perversions and rampant sins. Just more thoughts...) 


Nothing too Hard for God
This year 2016 shall bring many more deaths, not only in wars with ISIS (Daesh), but also in internal conflicts amongst the people and government agencies (even with those who are supposed to protect the people). 

Death also shall be in cataclysmic events, ‘resurrected’ diseases and violence (protests and riots in various nations) among people (for political, ‘religious’ and personal reasons) that could have been avoided. It is driven by demonic forces in the workers of iniquity (wickedness, deviation from the right path, pain-ridden evil), [sinful humans worshipping Satan, false gods that people call by different names].  This pertains to all nations, all peoples, tribes and clans.
I understood this to mean “spiritual” death in great numbers also.  It really has to do with walking away, apostasy, falling away from the faith. (I really must expound more on this later; as it is one reason false prophecies that stem from false teachings are [both] dangerous.).

On the other hand, the patiently obedient are going to see long-awaited prayers and personal promises manifested too (globally – timing is His). The Lord is not speaking of a global revival that we keep hearing about (Jesus spoke of a “falling away” in the last days), but is speaking of the prayers of multitudes of His people, who are scattered throughout the nations around the world, being answered, with numerous seeing miraculous answers to fervent prayers and long-awaited promises. 

There will be those that God brings a miracle too, unexpectedly, even to those who may not believe, but will be drawn to repentance by God’s goodness.
The Lord reminded me of two things. First, He reminded me of the scripture: 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]
Pruning and purging have been going on for some time now in all of God’s people, as well as the many and various hard trials of our faith. Those who strive to obey the gospel have been made aware of any unrighteous thought, word or deed in their lives. When exposed by the Holy Spirit, repentance is to be the result and overcoming follows suit.  

These beams have to first be removed from our own eyes, before we can ever hope to help another with a splinter in their eye.  First we must rid ourselves of unrighteousness, in order to help or speak to others shackled in bondages. Jesus is the only one who can not only break the chains, but remove the shackles and do away with the strongman guarding over the prisoners in bondage.

Faith and obedience to Jesus will produce good works, the fruit of faith. It goes hand in hand. Many who have worked with the Holy Spirit in overcoming are about to see the ‘impossible’ become a reality.
It shall not be to glorify flesh or to satisfy any lustful desires, but ‘impossibilities that God has promised. The power of God will be manifested, who alone will be glorified. Again, this is globally.  Yet remember, God’s power is revealed in His judgments as well.

Ah Lord GOD! behold, You have made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: You show lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name,

Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for Your eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give everyone according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: Which has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day; [Jer 32:17-20]

Secondly, the Lord gives a reminder and warns us again against false signs and wonders from those who are not His (false prophets, false Christs). As surely as He had me write about the clash of the kingdoms a few years ago, He reminds us that this ongoing battle has intensified spiritually, as well as in the physical realm.

We are to abide in Him, holding fast to our faith and seeking His wisdom in all things. We need wisdom, understanding and increased discernment and we need to apply it in all areas (myself included). These things can only be found in Christ Jesus. We must know the Word of God; keep in prayer.


And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. [Mat 24:4, 5] For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. [Mat 24:24]

The only way it will not be possible is as written above. Hold fast to faith and obey God through Jesus. With God’s help, be cleansed of all that is not of Him. The Two Christs is a writing that came from a dream that I had in late 2006, when I had only been fully committed to the Lord about a year and a half.

I had already been delivered of ‘legion’ and was by that time also delivered from eleven years of doctor-prescribed medications. The dream was first posted in the year 2008. It served as a warning then, as surely as it does to this day. It is but a taste of the goodness, grace and mercies of God to warn His people.

The deception that is being presented is not only around the world, but also in Christianity. It is so cleverly disguised, wrapped up perfectly using the words that are commonly heard in Christianity. Just as Satan deceived in the Garden, taking God’s words and twisting them, in order to bring confusion which planted seeds of doubt tainted with his lies, he is doing the same today.

False teachings are filled with the right-sounding words and even scriptures (often plenty), bringing confusion. A person may not even know they are confused, but instead, they are astounded at the wonder of God.

Satan has been described as clever, cunning and crafty, which should warn us of his ability to deceive the masses. We are upon the earth but a moment in time when placed on the grand scale of time. Satan has been around since the beginning.

Do we really consider ourselves so wise that we can escape his deceptions unscathed? The truth is that without God’s guidance and wisdom, we can all be fooled and caught in any one of his countless snares.  I do not know about you, but I have been deceived before myself, and it is a horror and an incredibly unsettling feeling once the evil in that deception is exposed.

We tend to think that such things will never happen to us. We know too much; we have seen many things, so we say. Beware of high thinking! Jesus warned us more than once in His words that if it were possible, even the elect would be deceived.
We cannot be presumptuous. We cannot presume to think that we can avoid all deception, without bringing all things to Him. Remember, Satan convinced one-third of the angels, who knew God, to follow after him. Selah

All of us need to be constantly reminded of this, for it is too easy for us to go our fine way and ‘forget’ to involve God in every “little” decision that we make. He gave us free will after all, we protest. If it is on my heart, it must be from Him. Beware, beware. We can deceive ourselves, due to our ambitions, passions and desires, or we can wait patiently to see how the Lord would direct us.

He alone knows the end result from the beginning. I have been guilty of this myself – making a decision on something without seeking the counsel of God. It behooves us to press into Him like never before and receive His wise counsel on all matters.

Falling into Satan’s traps of deception can be as dangerous as falling into quicksand. If perchance we should be miraculously pulled out when our head is nearly submerged fully, there will be damage and pain to deal with afterwards. Mark my words! We need Christ Jesus in this chaotic, volatile and corrupt world, where betrayals, lies, witchcraft, deception and all manner of evil thrive.

Just as Jesus/Yeshua forewarned – it is getting worse.  We need to hear the Good Shepherd say, “This is the way; walk you in it.”  We have to stay close enough to the Shepherd to hear and see how He wants us to go, so He can protect us.

The dangers are too many to try and go it alone, or to follow after one who is blind. Christ Jesus will indeed protect us up until the time appointed for us to leave this earth. It is appointed unto man once to die and then, the judgment.

 The excellence in deception has been so perfected down through the millennia that without God, we will be led along a path that leads to our destruction.

The Two Christs - A Dream

Before me stood two Christs. They looked identical, moved identically and were dressed identically.

One would say, 'Through Me is the way unto salvation.’
And the other would say, 'Thru me is the way unto salvation.’
One would say, 'I am Christ. I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by Me.'
And the other would say, 'I am Christ. I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but through me.'
In my dream, I seemed to be confused when asking, 'Which of you do I believe?' Like so many others, I do not want to be deceived, so I prayed. I heard the Holy Spirit say, 'Mention the blood'...
So, I looked at them both, not knowing which was which, and started to ask a question about the Blood of Jesus. But I didn't know what to ask. If I didn't ask the right thing, I would get the wrong answer or a deceiving answer, from the one who was reflecting the true Christ Jesus.

I was struggling hard, because I knew that I had to know and I had to know right quickly! My thoughts were racing, what to ask, what to ask?! 
Then I heard, 'Ask your question THROUGH the Blood, and keep in mind that the Lord your God shall lead you in all truth.'
I pondered it for a moment. Then I said to the two Christs...
"Through the BLOOD of Jesus the Christ, I ask, which SIDE of the FATHER do you sit at?"
Simultaneously, I heard one say, 'Right' and the other say, 'Left’.  It was as though suddenly I could HEAR, and I HEARD His VOICE, and the TRUE Christ was the one who said 'Right.' 
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.  [Mk 16:9]
Satan is the counterfeiter who MIRRORS everything that he sees God doing. Therefore, it was Satan who appeared as Christ, but who is fact Anti (against) Christ. It is him that said 'Left'. (Satan has no seat beside the Father.)

In his very best illusions, Lucifer/Satan can only imitate and appear as our Saviour, Jesus the Christ, but it is a mere REFLECTION (not the real), an illusion, a deception. He was not allowed to lie. His answer was filtered through the Blood of Christ Jesus. Therefore he had to say ‘left’, for he can only do what is allowed by God. He cannot escape the Sovereignty of God.
I gasped when I heard the answers and immediately ran to the One who sits at the RIGHT hand of the Father. His (Jesus) arms were open and I ran into them.  He looked at me and without a word, He moved me behind Him, as though He were a shield [as a man might do to protect a woman; or as a parent might do to protect their child].
Christ Jesus turned towards the false Christ, the Antichrist. Immediately, the appearances of BOTH changed. One shone with blinding light.The other one roared angrily with darkened countenance when revealed, changing immediately into a fierce dragon. The evil and hatred in his eyes showed what was in his corrupt and prideful heart. Immediately he disappeared.

for His glory alone
