Beware the Days

Seeding in Night's Darkness

Tell My people.  Be a voice, a messenger of a simple child speaking to the brethren, to all who have ears to hear and pure hearts.  Selah
A man went into the fields at night and sowed tares amongst the wheat.

Open your eyes and abide deeper in Christ Jesus/Yeshua.  Doubt is a 'tare-type' of seed. It is a truth that all people have doubts at times. Do not feed and water doubt, or it will turn into a harvest of unbelief.

Open your ears to hear before the man (adversary) in the dark night plants seeds of doubt. Stay alert. Pray to be awakened and awake when you must be. 

The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather you together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.  [Mat 13:24-26; 30]
Harvest time approaches. At harvest time, the heads of the tares stand proudly above all, yet the wheat bows humbly in the mighty wind.

Cast down the imaginations that torment and toss your faith around like a ball in a tennis court. There must be no doubt. Fight it. Bind the strongman who presents deception. Then cast down and out doubt, confusion, any and all fear.

End of message

What We are Being Shown

It is no game and the adversary is not playing. Just as Judas, the enemy approaches with a smile, smooth words and a kiss of betrayal. Such will eat with you, walk with you, and even appear to be a disciple of Jesus, but their heart is not truly for God, but for their own personal gain.
These are the days of the Judas', be aware!  

It is a time for those with a spirit as Jezebel, one who will prophesy, telling people what they want to hear, turning people [slowly, yet cleverly] to a false god (a false Jesus). It is one who will assassinate the characters of God's Holy Spirit-filled people and any who stand in her way. 
These are the days of the spirit of Jezebel, be aware!

Look for the Baalam of today, Test every spirit to see if it is of God. Balaam did hear from God, but he was not His prophet of God; he was a diviner.  Balaam could only speak what God had told him to say.  Yet, he still devised a plan to go around what God spoke (blessings upon His people) to lead the Lord's people into worshipping false gods (idols) and into sexual immorality. His wickedness was all in order to gain the filthy lucre promised by king Balak.  

These are the days of those like Balaam, ready to deceive or lead astray for personal gain. There is no fear of the living God, and the ways certain 
'Christians' try to get around God's will is as Balaam (to get what they want). 

Even their prayers are to bend God's will to their will, so they can get what they want and not what God sees as best. They excuse their sins.  After all, they repeat, "God understands. He made me. I'm a born-again believer, under grace."  This is referred to as "charismatic witchcraft". 
Beware of those who walk as Balaam did.

Seducing spirits that deceive (is there any evil spirit that does not deceive?) are rampant in the world. As Jesus forewarned, "Take heed no man (person) deceive you."  [Mat 24:4]

When people hear the word "lust", they automatically think sexually. It is true that sexual immorality is at an all-time high. People literally go through "the motions" on the dance floor, particularly sodomy. Clothes for men and of course women, leave nothing to the imagination. In fact, today's fashions are mostly see-through, or the material covers just enough to tempt and stir up the sexual lusts of others, or that you will not be arrested for indecent exposure. 

Yet, nowadays, with the way the courts and the laws are going, that charge may not even exist, or it is rarely implemented. These days, sex outside of marriage is taken for granted. 

There are also far too many married people today who forget their vows and sneak around in adulterous relationships, and the birth of the internet makes it so much easier to deceive a spouse and others.  

Just as the Israelites in the days of Moses, hearts became hardened and some of the people "tired" of their spouses and wanted "something new". It mattered not who was put to shame, what families were torn apart, or who was hurt in the process, so long as the "two" lusting after each other were happy, that is all that mattered. 

In anger, Moses finally permitted what became known as 'a writing of divorcement' (the first original divorce certificate).  However, that does not mean that God agreed with the choice of certain individuals. Self-centered, proud, covetous (often), ungrateful, uncommitted...the list goes on.

They (Pharisees) say unto Him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?  He (Jesus/Yeshua) said to them, Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

And I say to you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoso marries her which is put away does commit adultery.  [Mat 19:7-9]

(Note* - I must add that I do believe that if a man (yes, it sometimes happens), or a woman and/or children are being beaten or worse that God would not insist that those in danger should stay in such a place, and to leave for safety at the first opportunity.

That is all I will say on it at this time, but I still exhort each and all, to take everything to the Lord. Everyone has an opinion, but God's wisdom and direction surpasses all. He knows what is best and will guide those who trust Him to lead. - BP)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  [Prov 3:5, 6]
Watch for seducing spirits.  They are not just out in the world, but seducing spirits have even entered the churches. In fact, they love to tempt the followers/disciples of Christ Jesus (Christians) the most. 

Be sober. Be vigilant because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour. [1Pet 5:8]

They will lead you away from God, away from Jesus. If you are a Christian and you give in to seducing spirits, you will justify it with the doctrines of devils. These spirits will lead you away from the faith.

It can start with flattery or compliments, or stroking a person's ego with smooth words and a type of admiration. Laughter and fun times will be thrown in to spice things up. Then before one knows it, they are over their heads in sin. If they enjoy the sin, guaranteed that it all will be justified, even to the point to saying it is God's will.

Divorce is never God's will. In today's society, nearly everything is throwaway or replaceable, including relationships. Do not be deceived. Stay very close to God. 

Flee fornication; flee from temptation. Do not be as David with Bathsheba. 
Be as Joseph with Potiphar's wife. David paid the consequences the rest of his life; Joseph reaped great reward.  Trust God!

These are the days of seducing spirits...and every kind of evil and deception. Stay close to God, no matter what.

Finally, beware of deception. It will come in unexpected ways and forms.  That is why it is called deception. It is never as one expects, and often, not through people or means that we expect either.

I bring deception up lastly because most people, even unbelievers, are aware of the falsehoods, the deception and lies so magnified in the world today. Since the 2016 elections, the phrase "fake news" has become the newest buzzword. 

When His disciples asked Jesus what they should look for and what would be the sign of His return, the Lord Jesus Christ began His warning with "deception".
Take heed no man deceives you.

In the latter days, which we are heavily into now, Jesus (Yeshua) went on to mention deception four more times in His warning and prophesying.  It seems only appropriate to mention it here as well, since our Saviour (Messiah) felt it necessary to mention it so many times in His talk regarding the last days just before His return.

Take heed that no man (or woman - no one) deceive you. [Jesus/Yeshua]

Beware the days and time we are in!
Time Flies

Three months ago (March 6), I was discharged from hospital. A day or two after that I came upon Isaiah 40 (my Bible immediately opened there, without a bookmark). It begins:

Comfort you, comfort My people, says your God. Speak comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received of the Lord's hand double for all her sins.

The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare you the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  [Is 40:1-3]

Three or four more times over the next couple of weeks the Bible kept opening there, without bookmark or wear and tear that would immediately open the book there.  From the first time and right through, I asked the Lord, "How? How do I ...or even, how can I comfort your people, Lord?"

I felt the Lord was asking the wrong person to comfort the brethren. As I searched for the answers to the "hows", life continued and searching the heart was heavy and deep. 

Faith became shaken, but not done away with. I know that I know that I know, I am not the only one whose faith is shaken and tried...and more than once. What could I possibly say, and why is He asking me at my lowest point?

Perhaps in the writing, it will help another.  May the Holy Spirit help me to say that which God would have me say, and may He be glorified.

It may be a few days, but it will not be a month. Shalom in Christ

for His glory

Take Heed No Man Deceive You

(NOTE*: This article was updated/edited - added to May 9/17)

Take Heed!
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]

At the end of December 2016, I had wondered if the Lord had anything to say about the New Year.  With chaos and confusion and tension building in every nation globally, it is natural to wonder what is going to happen or what all the turmoil is leading up to. Yet, no matter what, we have to keep reminding ourselves that the Lord is our safe refuge, our strong tower and always precisely on time.

The Holy Spirit will lead us in the way that we need to go, whether corporately, individually and/or both. God is not a fortune teller, but as the one true God He cautions and warns. He is the true Living God that can safely and wisely direct our steps by His Spirit. None else can.

Only God knows each of us intimately (He is omnipresent, which means that at all times, He is everywhere or ever present).  Only God fully understands where we are at well enough to guide us in His wisdom.  He is omniscient (all-knowing, all-seeing, all-wise).

The Holy Spirit laid upon my heart some of what to expect this year. It has been confirmed prophetically by others in their own words. The Body of Christ receives the same message, but as individual parts, we all have our own personalities, as did the prophets and apostles of old who wrote the Holy Scriptures. These things are not just for a select few to know.
In Joel 2:28, God promised to pour out His Spirit in the last days, and sons and daughters would prophesy; old men would dream dreams and young men would have visions.  The Lord said that He would pour out of His Spirit and His servants and handmaidens would prophesy. Today, from the very young to the old can prophesy as the Spirit gives them utterance.  People who are not prophets can speak forth prophetic words; they can prophesy. This is God’s doing through His precious Holy Spirit.
God pouring out His Spirit upon many people first happened on the day of Pentecost. On that glorious day, tongues of fire fell on about 120 people praying in the Upper Room and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Peter explained what had happened (in Acts 2:16, 17) when citizens from as far away as Asia, Egypt, Rome, Arabia and other countries heard people speaking in the native tongues of their country.

Baffled and amazed, they wondered what it meant. Not understanding, certain mockers accused those who had been in the Upper Room when the tongues of fire fell, of being full of wine (drunk), but Peter made it all very clear that it was none other than the words of the prophet Joel fulfilled.

Therefore, multitudes today prophesy because of that very promise of God. However, knowing what the end times entailed, Jesus forewarned that we are to try every spirit to see if it is of God because of the vast number of false prophets that would be out in the world today. And it is so…

Miracles and Great Trouble
From the December 2016, here are excerpts from that which the Lord laid on my heart:

“This coming year, there are going to be many miracles, many long-awaited visions, dreams and prophetic words finally coming into fruition.”

(Scriptures were given about the “fear of the Lord”, as well as those who keep His commandments. [Ps 147; Deut 5 and Rev 12]

“Yet again, the Lord mentions the “clash of the kingdoms”.

This coming year not only brings blessings, but also a year of great trouble. Stay close to Christ. Seek Him for answers and to lead you. that includes leading you to a prophetic word if that is what He desires to do.

Yet I caution (a gentle reminder) that we are not to chase after people for a prophetic word, but to run to God, who promised to pour out of His Spirit in the last days and sons and daughters will prophesy. [Act 2:17]

Allow Him to confirm a thing to you as HE chooses to do so. Be prepared for a clash of the kingdoms. A year of miracles, but also a year of great troubles! Stay close and hold fast to the Lord.”

(End of excerpts)

So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

Then said Jesus unto him, Except you see signs and wonders, you will not believe. The nobleman said to him, Sir, come down or my child die. Jesus said to him, Go your way; your son lives. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and he went his way. [Jn 4:46-50]
The story goes that the nobleman’s servants met him to tell him that his son was alive. When he asked his servants the hour he began to recover, and they told him, the father knew that it was the same hour that Jesus had told him to go, and that his son lives. He and his entire household became believers.

We are told in God’s word that in the end times, there will be signs and wonders, both from God and from false prophets. All of us need to be able to discern which is which.  When the Lord said at the very end of last year that great miracles (blessings) were coming, but also great trouble, we must believe Him even if we do not see things immediately.

One such miracle happened quite recently when a category F4 tornado swept through Tulsa, Oklahoma and carried a mobile home, along with five family members inside, for 130 miles before dropping it, mildly damaged yet intact in Kansas. The family was unharmed.
Everyone was amazed at such a miracle. Apparently the five members prayed for slightly over over four long hours, whilst the mobile twisted and turned precariously in the winds. Imagine the adrenaline coursing through their veins for that many hours! A harrowing experience! What a test of faith! And ironically, the woman’s name was Dorothy. What are the odds?
Everyone was talking about it, including me. How amazing! Imagine a mobile home ripped up from its foundation and carried in the volatile winds for over 130 miles! Incredible. Nothing is impossible with God!

What cushioned the landing of the mobile home was a car, which the mobile landed on. The vehicle had no occupants inside at the time of impact. The mobile home suffered little structural damage overall.

But what were we told? Jesus us told us to watch and pray. He also exhorted us to try ever spirit to see if it is of God or not because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 

Is it not true that we often believe what we want to believe, especially if a thing seems to bring glory to God? The story was first published by World News Daily Report in 2015 and republished in 2017. The majority must have missed the story the first time around, even me. It is “fake news”, a satirical story published by World News Daily Report. 

Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms were buzzing with the ‘miracle’. And all the while, the staff at WNDR news site, and likely the devil himself, were laughing at the gullible Christians who were praising God for such a miracle. How it quenched the spirit within me when I found out.

It was not until I was preparing to write this article, to share the jubilant news with others of the greatness of our God that I discovered the wool had been pulled over my eyes and I had not even discerned it. How many of us read the words of Jesus, "...IF it were possible, even the elect will be deceived." 

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. Behold, I have told you before.  [Mat 24:24, 25]

I was one of the gullible, until it was impressed upon me to check to see what other news sites were saying. Surprise, surprise, they were all silent on the report. Red flag!  Snopes and TruthOrFiction both posted that the miraculous ride through the tornado, with five survivors, including “Dorothy” was FAKE news. The entire story was satire.

Definition of satire:  the use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other issues

Did I feel stupid? Perhaps some, but worse was the realization that my discernment was not as keen as I had thought it was. Perhaps some read the article and knew immediately that it was fake, particularly when they saw the name Dorothy. Others would think the  name to be a humorous coincidence.

A reader has to scroll to the very bottom of the page, which carries a news article, a wealth of comments and several other stories, before coming to the DISCLAIMER that World News Daily Report posts. Scroll to the very bottom of the page of the report: Tornado carries mobile home 130 miles

Jesus/Yeshua Warns Us

Jesus said to the nobleman that unless he sees signs and wonders he would not believe. And although there will be signs and wonders, it is best that we do not seek after them.  The disciples and Jesus were on the Mount of Olives, when they asked him privately what the sign of His coming and the end of the world would be, and when?
The very first words out of the Messiah’s mouth in answering them were: “Take heed that no man deceive you.”

Deception!  The very first thing Christ Jesus warned them (and us) about was deception as the time of His coming approached, and the end of the world. Four times in His speech He cautioned about deception. [Matthew 24]

We are in that time now. It grieved me that I fell for the story at first. I put nothing past God; He is the God of the impossible. However, that was not the first test in discernment that I had failed recently. 

My discernment was always keen before and for that I give the Lord glory. But the Lord is showing us all that what worked five or ten years ago does not now. Be on guard because I do believe the Lord is allowing the testing. What tripped me up may not fool you, and vice versa.

The Lord God most often saves the best until last. The adversary [Satan means adversary], who counterfeits and mimics all God does, has also saved the best till last. He is only just now beginning to pull out his heavy artillery. He is bringing out his strongest deceptions now and he is most convincing. 
If mankind can pull the wool over our eyes, how much more can Satan and his legions?  Just wait until the False Prophet and the Antichrist are revealed, and most if not all, will not know at first. Satan is king of deception! You don't think that you can be fooled as I was? Be on guard and pray that you will not be.

Not only is the Lord shaking up His people (judgment begins in His own house), and shaking has begun in the world, He is doing more...much more in this hour. The Lord is allowing many tests to try His people right now, and they are more difficult than those in the past.  

We cannot even begin to imagine the powers that exist. We are blown away by technology, the ability to have X-ray vision; night vision; to appear invisible; to remote view; super soldiers; holograms; weather manipulation; chemtrails, to name a few.

There is also cloning (replicating DNA, making identical copies), hybrids (animals and mankind), transhumanism (mankind and machine), and on it goes.  I do not need to carry on because the list is incredibly long and grows longer quickly and continuously, one discovery after we "can be as gods". Still the same lie that we were told in the Garden of Eden.

We are in dangerous, dark and foreboding days.  Not only is our discernment being challenged, but the Lord is also shaking things. It now is clear to us that the Lord God has spoken through many about "shaking" and He is doing it now

The Lord has been warning about a "shaking" for a long time. Not only in His written word, but warning through His people. I do know He mentioned it a few years back to me and I posted it, but where is it on this blog, I have no idea.

That matters not, I am but one voice. Amongst seven billion people, my voice is but a peep.  Yet when one voice is mingled with thousands upon millions of other voices, a roar sounds and the message is heard, whether accepted or not, it is most definitely heard.

The Lord God has repeatedly and graciously spoken this warning through a multitude of other vessels. He is good beyond measure!  A sister in Christ named Amanda Hagerman was one of the voices the Lord chose to speak through back in December of 2012 about the coming shaking. 

No one can say the Lord does not give fair warning. He first warned us through the Holy Scriptures.
See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaks from heaven: Whose voice shook the earth: but now He has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 

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 12:25-27]

Whatever He reveals, we must work with Him by repenting and being cleansed. The Bride shall be without spot or blemish. Are you without these things (spot or blemish)? I am not yet perfected, and oh, how I pray for increased discernment!

No one is pointing fingers. If we are being corrected, it means that we belong to the Lord, that we are His children. Let us strive to walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh. Let us pay very close attention to all that is being told to us and no matter what, learn and LEARN QUICKLY, to take all things to God.

If we believe our discernment is keen, we may well fail because despite our experience and intellect, things are not as they once were. Most of us have been deceived (fooled) at some point and at least once in our lives, if we have lived long enough. We believed someone or something because we trusted.  
Yet it must be said that if it was not gravely possible that even the wisest can be deceived, Jesus would not have begun his very speech about the last days with: Take heed that no man deceive you. [Mat 24:4]  Did He say, "take heed, you blind and foolish ones?"

Absolutely not. He was speaking to each and every one of us. Did I check out the story when a Christian friend read it to me from her cell phone? When I first looked it up, did I scroll down to the bottom of the page on my own and see the disclaimer? Did I pray about it?

The answer is no. Not at first. I only checked further and deeper when I decided to write about the "miracle".  Then the prophetic word God gave me would be established by this "truth", this "sign".

O how we can be like Jonah at times. God wants people to repent, even today. Jonah knew that if he prophesied about coming judgment and punishment that Nineveh would repent and that God would be merciful and relent. He did not want to appear as a false prophet.  Jonah was not happy when Nineveh repented.
If we are brutally honest, those who publish prophetic words or messages from the Lord, are we not like Jonah?  Do we hope that our prophecy or prophetic words will come to pass so that we are PROVEN to be true and hearing from God?  Will we run far as Jonah did at the idea that people just might repent?

Well, I know that I know that those who speak forth messages from the Lord most certainly do hope their words come to pass. Yet one thing I was shown long ago is that if we have a dream or vision or receive a prophetic word about coming judgment, after warning people, we are to pray for God's mercy. 

We are to pray that people repent and turn their hearts back to God. We are not to hope the judgment comes so we can prove to be "true ones". That is the wrong heart attitude and believe me, the Lord God WILL deal with it, in His time and in His way. 

The very thought makes me tremble. Do we fear the Lord, truly fear Him, or have we gotten comfortable in our relationship with Him because He speaks with us...because Jesus paved a way for us to communicate with God. He has been teaching me very clearly to forget SELF...stay humble before our God.
He has shown you o man what is good; and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. [Micah 6:8]

Despite the constant rhetoric about "fake news" since the days of Trump's campaigning, I accepted the story because to me such a "miracle" glorified God (the true, living God). I believed it because I wanted to and because I know God is the God of the impossible. I do not doubt that He can do anything.

I once wrote that Solomon was considered the wisest man who ever lived. Even to this day, reference is made to Solomon and his wisdom. Yet, in all his wisdom, he still fell away from obeying Almighty God because of his lust for women and the love he felt for his foreign wives.
The Lord God warned him not to marry foreign women or they would sway him towards worshipping their idols, their false gods, and that is exactly what happened. In the end, Solomon was deceived into disobeying God because of a weakness he had in his flesh.

His weakness may not be ours; my weakness may not be yours and your weakness may not be mind, but we ALL have weaknesses. Satan will target those weaknesses in order to deceive us and to make us fall.

We think we are so much wiser than Adam and Eve, and Saul, and Peter and all those in the Bible who were also very confident in their standing with God, and yet failed in one way or another.

Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore (for what reason) let him that thinks he stands take heed (beware) lest he fall.  [1Cor 10:12]

It seemed such a simple matter, an amazing news story that I did not see any need to take it to the Lord or pray about it. However, I have been praying about increased discernment.

I do believe that Father God (Abba), in His goodness and wisdom, allowed me the embarrassment of such a trivial thing, in order to "shake me" into realizing the lateness of the hour - the foreboding and deceptive times we are in, but also to drive home the fact that without Jesus (without taking all things to Him in these evil days), then we can be (and likely will be) deceived.

Dear reader, it is only going to get increasingly worse and very quickly! This cannot be sugarcoated or played down. Yes, I realize that everyone is weary of hearing about the "end of the world" and the "return of the Lord", only to see things continue on the same.

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all thins continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 
[2Pet 3:4]

This is the doing of the enemy, Satan and his legions. Jesus warned of it. Daniel warned about the "wearing down of the saints" [Dan 7:25]. This is only the precursor to the real wearing down. The worst is yet to come.

I must remind myself as well. Take every thing (no matter how trivial it seems) to the Lord. It is best to err now and be corrected than to err later where it could mean our death, or worse, it could mean leading others astray. God forbid!

Be careful (anxious) for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. [Phil 4:6]

for His glory

It Will Come Suddenly

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me: You shall stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand shall save me.
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me. Your mercy, o Lord, endures forever. Forsake not the works of Your own hands.  [Ps 138:7, 8]]

Do not doubt – great trouble is coming and greater distress of nations. All My people who prophesy are back and forth, speaking two messages – judgment and repentance; love and forgiveness.
Even the heathen hear the rattling of sabers, hear the threats of the nations, one against another, and see the maneuvering, positioning and testing. The stench of evil is in the air and all around. None escape it; therefore, from young to old, believer and unbeliever, people sense something horrible is over the horizon.
Fear not. You were forewarned.  [Mat 24]

How long have I pleaded with man to turn his heart back to Me? And how long have the people cried, “Where is God? Why is this happening?” Or how many have no thought or regard toward Me at all.

There is no fear of the Lord, even amongst many of those who call themselves by My name.

The world is already trembling, for the great shaking is coming.  Chaos, corruption, abominations and deception are at an all-time high globally. One does not need to be prophetic to know these things.

Once again, the whole earth is corrupted. Once more, My heart grieves over that which I have created.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord that He had made man upon the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.  [Gen 6:5, 6

The shaking is increasing in My own house, for judgment has begun and is increasing rapidly. Time is of the essence! Shaking has begun in My people. 

The shaking is as the sifting of wheat, tossed up and down, to and fro spiritually. Doubts, fears and questions haunt the upright, just as they laughed and sneered as My Son was upon the cross.

Some wonder if they will overcome and be cleansed and healed, even though they know that I, who began a good work in them will continue it until My Son’s return, but they must cling to Him, as branches and grapes to the vine. He must be in them and they in Him.
Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.  [Jn 15:4]

There are those who claim to be Mine, with pretentious praises and phrases upon their lips, but their hearts are far from Me [Is 29:13; Mat 15:8], as they mingle with the world and help prepare the stage (knowingly or unknowingly) for the Lawless One (the Antichrists of all antichrists).

Satan counterfeits all that I do, for great is the confusion, hatred and deception he brings.  My shaking brings to the surface all that is not of Me, for as Peter was sifted, so Satan has desired to sift My people as wheat.

Satan is shaking circumstances, situations and people in order to bring confusion, doubt, fear, unbelief, chaos and deception as hatred, suspicion and mistrust increase. Remember I am not the author of confusion, but of peace. [1Cor 14:33]

No, you are not crazy, for as I have said, Satan and his legions are shaking hard, doing all they can to confuse My people. These devils will do all they can to make you doubt your salvation, doubt your faith, doubt who you are in Me, doubt that which I have promised.

The goal is to cause you to disobey and turn away.  They will do all to convince My people that they (My people) are of no consequence to Me, or that I am not a God who is “on time”, but one who tarries and lingers. He is a liar, a murderer from the beginning [Jn 8:44] and the accuser of My people. [Rev 12:10]
He came to steal, kill and destroy. [Jn 10:10] Hold fast to your faith, for without faith it is impossible to please Me. He will do all he can to steal your personal promises, dreams and visions that I have given you, particularly those who have had to wait a long season.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.  But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is of faith. [Heb 11:5-7]

Those who love Me with all their hearts and obey all that I say, be at peace. [Phil 4:7] Do not panic, for I shall surely direct your steps. Do not let fear overwhelm you for My love is true. [1Jn 4:18]  Cast down all the imaginations. [2 Cor 10:5]

Trust in Me. I repeat, trust in Me, not leaning on your own understanding, for I have promised to direct your steps. [Prov 3:5, 6]   You must listen to My voice alone and not the voice of others or you can be misled.
Stay in My word, for I speak through it. It is spirit and life. Go to My Word first always and not man.  Despise not prophesying [1Thess 5:20], but remember, all that I do is done decently and in order. [1 Cor 14:40] Only I know all things.
[Ps 139]

Ask Me to confirm and I shall, for I tell you to test the spirit to see if it is of Me or not. I will not go against My Word (written), for I have exalted My name and My Word above all things. [Ps 138:2].

Obey Me in even those things that seem trivial, for like a puzzle, one piece fits with another.  That which I have promised is true; only be patient. I am working all things out according to My purpose and all things have an appointed time. [Gen 18:14; 21:2-- Eccl 3
It will come suddenly. Trust in Me. Selah

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come; it will not delay.  [Hab 2:3]

I have been working on an article for nearly two months, "Comfort My People", but there are times we have to go through things to write more effectively. The Lord is comforting His warriors who have wearied, but He has no more patience for those who are lukewarm and those "playing church". These are serious days. BP 2017

I was also to add that Satan is extraordinaire when it comes to convincing people that either he is not real, or that he (Lucifer) is really Christ and Jesus is actually the one who rebelled (oh yes, I have been told this, but it is a lie of Satan). 

Remember when he tempted Jesus in the desert wilderness, Satan spoke the word to Jesus (Who IS the word come in the flesh? - Yeshua/Jesus of course), but he took it out of context. He twisted it, but Jesus countered it each time.

Remember - poisoned food is 97-98% poison, but it's the little poison that kills.

Witchcraft and sorcery is like a thick dark cloud over many areas, in many nations, but many, if not most Christians do not believe that anymore than the truth that we are in a spiritual battle where warfare is constant upon this earth.

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived.  [Rev 18:23] 

And I will cut off witchcrafts out of your hand; and you shall have no more soothsayers:  [Mich 5:12]

I found it interesting that the word of God uses plural for witchcraft and really the devil's work is under a multitude of titles, but it is all evil and involves the dark side and the legions there.

Stand now with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your sorceries, wherein you have laboured from your youth; if so be you shall be able to profit, if so be you may prevail.
You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon you.  [Is 47:12, 13]

What serious, serious verses, brothers and sisters! We have work to do. The Lord desires none should perish, but we know that there are those who will not turn back to their Creator and Saviour! 

Things are not as they were twenty, ten or even five years ago. All is escalating so fast and the Holy Spirit has confirmed this with not just the seekers of truth, but both seekers and doers of truth (born-again, Holy Spirit-filled obedient children of the one true Living God)!

Pray for knowledge, understanding and wisdom (it is written that He will give if we ask) [Jam 1:5], but He sees motive and intent - remember that.  Pray for increased discernment (especially since much has changed in the past few years).

Truly, the devil's wrath is being unleashed [Rev 12:12]  And we have NOT seen the full brunt of it at all; this is just the precursor. The Word of God describes it, but many are as in the days of Noah, yawning and saying, "It won't happen in  my lifetime. Fearmonger! Chill and enjoy life!"

How many thought that those very things in Noah's day...until the first raindrop fell!  Ponder that. (emphasis in scripture mine, as per usual)

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 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 creation.

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perish:

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment (day of the Lord) and perdition of ungodly men.  [2Pet 3:4-7]
Animal-human hybrids, cyborgs, AI (artificial intelligence), cloning, super-soldiers, holograms...I could go on, but the reader gets the idea. NOW do you see why I say things are not the same as they were in as little as five years ago? Gentle reminder...

This is why I pray for increased discernment.  I failed one test recently and the time is upon us where we must test EVERY spirit to see if it is of God, no matter how much you like them, or their smiles, or, or, or...

Satan is so subtle and cunning, but we think we are all so wise. We have NOT been around since the beginning. Our knowledge is limited, with or without computers.  
Holy angels were blessed to live and be in the presence of the Lord constantly. Yet Lucifer convinced one-third to follow him. He can appear as an angel of light and we will not know it unless we have the Holy Spirit and discernment.

With how mankind is perfecting things with their increased KNOWLEDGE (go back to Genesis and see the name of the tree that Adam and Eve ate from), HOW are we going to know if we are speaking with a super-soldier, or a cyborg et al, not to mention those (actual humans) that are demon-possessed?
Something to consider...BP2017
