Need to Know Yesterday-Part FOUR

Series parts: Part ONE -  Part TWOPart THREE

One Voice
Your watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.

The LORD has made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD. [Is 52:8; 10-11]

Right now, the watchmen of God are seeing eye to eye and speaking (singing) the same song. The warnings are similar, as is the message. Repentance and being in right standing with God, pressing in and obeying His instructions to His people, in His Word and individually.

Follow what He instructs you personally, for He is positioning His people. What He instructs one to do may not be how He instructs another. This is not some competitive game.

This is a bloody war in the end time battles. As in any army, each person knows their position; and knows what is expected of them. Each has been trained accordingly. The skills and expertise of one is just as important as that of another.  Alignment, accuracy and synchronizing is crucial, as is obedience (the ability to carry out orders precisely, in a timely manner).

Things are intensifying, becoming more chaotic and confusing, but those who are being led of the Lord shall not be confused, for He is leading His people. Yes, there are people in positions of leadership, but this is not favoritism. These are those who have gone through heaving training and many battles.

They have been trained through hardships, as well as trial and error. They have learned from their mistakes and have sharpened their awareness and skills. Through great testing, they have proven their faith to Christ Jesus, laying down their lives and willing to endure to the end, despite great persecution.

They lead by example and take no glory unto themselves. They will exhort all that the instructions that the Commander-in-Chief, Jesus Christ gives are the commands that must be first be heard and obeyed.

His commands are in alignment with His Word. He is the One all must listen to and follow. They point to Christ always as the Lord of the battle; who alone holds the power and victory.  His people all around the world are equally aware of what He is saying. All are in agreement.

We must heed His warnings about infiltration of the enemy; the turncoats (Judas’), the wolves in sheep’s clothing that are mingled in with the flock. He will cause the eyes of His people to see and their ears to hear. Those who stay close to Him will not be deceived, for He will give warning through His Holy Spirit.

He commands His warring angels, His guardian angels and all holy angels on all levels. He is sending them forth with different assignments to help His people in the greater and gross darkness that is thickening upon the lands all over the earth.  Those who trust in Him do not fear, for their quiet confidence is in Christ.

Long-awaited for miracles, wonders and signs of astounding measure will be taking place all over the globe, amongst His people in different nations. Those who know the Word of God understand the significance of that statement. John the apostle stated himself that if all the miracles that Jesus (Yeshua) did whilst He was upon the earth were recorded, the earth could not contain the books.

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.  [Jn 21:25]

We have learned of the miracles of old, and know of the power of God. He has not stopped doing His miracles. His timing is perfect. Look also and see the times that people had to work with God, acting in faith obediently, in order to see a miracle manifest. They obeyed and God performed. So it shall be in these times.

What do I mean by “people had to work with God, acting in faith”?  To cross the Jordan, certain instructions were to be followed. Joshua, the priests and the people worked with God, acting in faith obediently, and the waters of Jordan parted, backing up to Adam (an actual city, but symbolic of the “flesh” – dying to self). The land where the waters stood became dry so they could cross, just as it had for the exodus of the Israelites and the crossing of the Red Sea. [Josh 3:3-17]

The Importance of Faith and Obedience
Joshua and the Israelites followed God’s commandments and walked around the city of Jericho once a day for six days, without saying a word. On the seventh day, they were instructed to encircle in six times silently, except for the priests, who were to blast the trumpets (ram’s horns). On the seventh time around, the priests were to make a long blast and the people were to let out a great shout!  They obeyed and did their part, God performed a miracle! [Josh 6:2-8]

Naaman, the valiant warrior, was a leper. He was instructed by the Lord, through the prophet Elisha, to go dip himself in the Jordan seven times to be healed. I do not know if it was his pride or what, but the instructions (which were given to him via a messenger of Elisha and not Elisha himself) angered Naaman greatly.

He had thought the prophet would come in person and lay hands upon him to be healed, but instead his messenger told him to go dip in a river (Jordan), whose waters were not even as clean as other rivers around Israel. His servants persuaded him to heed the instructions of the Lord. When Naaman obeyed (doing his part), the Lord performed and Naaman’s skin became fresher than a child’s (healed of leprosy). [2King 5:10-15]

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. We must do our part, God will perform and do His. Remember, remember – Jesus (Yeshua) warned of signs and wonders being performed by false Christs and false prophets also in the end times, deceiving IF it were possible, even the elect. [Mat 24:24]

Remember the dream of The Two Christs, posted in Part THREE? When we see false prophets with false signs and wonders, who promote false teachers, teaching traditions of men and doctrines of devils, we must warn others.

Some of God’s people may be caught unawares, if they are distracted by the enemy (looking in another direction), or if they are lambs in the flock (babes in Christ). You must be on guard, stay close to the King (our Shepherd, our Commander-in-Chief), for He will warn us, so that we are not deceived.

That is how clever the enemy is; that is how “identical” it will appear, but we must filter everything through the Blood of the Lamb; through the Word of God and listen to the Holy Spirit. We know the voice of the Lord, and will not follow the voice of a stranger.

Do you see the importance of being sober, vigilant, keeping on your amour? Hold fast to your faith for it is your shield. The weapons of our warfare, which God provides, are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. [2Cor 10:4]

Yes, it is a bloody war. It is true that God is uniting His body (the body of believers), but He also said He brought a sword, one that will and does divide. Those who are compromising, or playing ‘church’ and not laying down their lives to His service, will come against you.

 The infiltrators, the Judas’, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, those false Christs with their loyal false prophets and teachers, who are deceiving people, will come against you. Expect it! Do not fear, but cleave to the Lord. Stay in His Word; trust and obey. Fear not!

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. [Mat 10:34-36]

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.  [Mat 24:9-12]

Do you see how serious this is? It is a bloody war, both spiritually and in the physical. The physical part is spreading bit by bit all over the world. What nation does not have angry people, people who are protesting, even rioting at injustices and brutalities? 

Hear what the Spirit is saying in this hour through His people. Pay close attention because the purpose is not just to warn of what is coming, but to point you to Christ, to exhort you to search within and lay down your lives, allowing Him to cleanse us of all unrighteousness, so that we may endure persecution, so that we may endure to the end with faith.

Those who are His will only point to Jesus the Christ. They will not touch His glory, no matter what!  The Lord is fine-tuning our gifts. Those who have been healed miraculously may well be ones He has prepared to use as vessels unto honour to bring healing to others. Those who have seen mighty miracles may be the very ones He chooses to perform mighty miracles through.

Miracles, Signs and Wonders are to Glorify God thru Jesus
It is wondrous and marvelous that He should allow us to be such vessels, and to work with Him, for truly He can do all things Himself. He does not have to have vessels to do His work; He is quite capable of doing all things with just a WORD! We are simply His willing servants.

Yet, it is His good pleasure to have a Body that works together as one, as a unit, as an army to go out into the world and do what He would have us do. We will not be some kind of “superhuman”.  I believe many will be accomplishing mighty things, but these will be things seen in the Word and not out of God’s character.

Jesus was able to get through pressing crowds mysteriously, without harm.

And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, And rose up, and thrust Him out of the city, and led Him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast Him down headlong. But He passing through the midst of them went His way, [Lk 4:28-30]

How was Jesus able to get past a crowd that was so enraged, they took Him to a precipice, ready to throw Him over to His death? Yet, He passed through them? Anyone who has ever been in a crowd of “emotion-charged” people must see this as a miracle that a bunch of them did not overpower Him.

There was the time that the apostles were out in a ship, having rowed about 25-30 furlongs (three miles plus), when they saw Jesus walking on the water. He told them not to be afraid and they brought Him into the boat. Then immediately, the ship was at the shore! Three miles out to sea and immediately they are ashore! That is some kind of miracle right there! (See Jn 6:19-21)

There are the dead that were raised again by Elijah, Elisha, Jesus, Peter and Paul, not to mention numerous souls resurrected from their graves after Jesus was resurrected. Countless people were healed by Jesus, as well as the apostles [Acts 5:12-16] Philip was transported from the desert when he was baptizing the eunuch [Act 8:26-40]. 

The greater works are ordinary people able to do what Jesus did because of what He accomplished on the cross, and in sending the Holy Spirit. In His name, we cast out demons, lay hands on the sick etc. For us, these are greater works and it is all because of what Jesus accomplished. Who can do greater works than God or the Son of God? 

It does not mean that we will be super-powerful or superhuman in the last days. Our bodies will still die on the day appointed for us personally, unless we are privileged enough to still be alive when He returns. But none of us knows when that day or hour is, or how many years away it is. Only God knows the time of His Son’s return!

Everyone of us would love to see His return, just as those who went before us hoped to witness the glory of His coming. Yet, the reality remains that we do not know.  All we know are the signs to watch for. All we know is to cling to Him and obey Him, overcoming step by step as we go.

Our duty is to Him alone, and to do His bidding willingly. He must increase, we must decrease.  Our heart is to tell others the good news, to pray one for another, to obey our King and Lord. All else is in His hands. He is God, not us!

We have seen all hell breaking loose in certain parts of the world, but it is about to get worse. This is not to make one fear, but to see the importance of abiding in Christ Jesus, knowing His Word, being sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Be careful who you listen to. Ask the Lord to send the teachers of truth, to open your eyes and ears to the false prophets and doctrines of devils. He will do that.
Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 
[Mat 24:25-27]

One last suggestion, if I may. Pray for the gift of prophesy.

Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. [1Cor 14:1]

Do not ask for to prophesy so that you may have some great following, or so your name will be made known among people. No, that is the wrong condition of the heart, and impure motives. Rather, pray to prophesy out of love for God and for the people, for His will to be done.

 Dwelling in Christ and He in you, knowing the Word of God, being led of His Holy Spirit, then when you prophesy, Christ is exalted (not you, not others), but also you will recognize His words in others, which will assist you in discerning the true from the false.  God is good;His mercy endures forever. 

Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you[Jn 16:13, 14]

A Strange Open Vision

If there are those who read this and have the interpretation given to them, please be so kind as to email me. We all work together. I believe that is God’s plan, so that none gets puffed up with pride.  Bless the Lord! I cannot pretend I have full understanding yet.
About five days ago, as I lay upon my bed, I saw snapshots of scenes. Firstly, I saw a fiery ball shooting across the heavens (in outer space), seeming to be headed for earth. As soon as I acknowledged what I was seeing, a cloud covered it completely, so that all I saw was the cloud, yet I knew what was behind the cloud coverage.

Does that mean it is hidden from most people (in the physical or the spiritual)? Could it mean some kind of cover-up (as in the people who should be informing the populace (NATO, UN or other such organizations), or does it mean cover-up from chemtrails at peak times when an incoming object may be sighted?

Does it mean that the Lord is covering it, so His people get right with Him? Now! There has been a great testing of faith going on for a time now. All that must be shall be, in God's timing. In Matthew 24, Jesus gives the order of events. He said after the "abomination of desolation" which Daniel spoke about, people will be fleeing, for great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning, nor shall be again, will begin.

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

With so many having visions and dreams regarding these things, is it indicative of how close we are to Messiah's return? We cannot push God's hand nor take anything out of order that is written in the Bible. We watch and pray.

Secondly, I saw a great body of water, an ocean. The waters began to be troubled from beneath the surface, which then became choppy. Plumes of smoke (plumes like a foggy mist) began to rise up in various places. Somehow, the water was churning underneath the surface and it began to rise up in great power. Something was affecting the waters (not sure what the plumes of foggy smoke means) and the waters begin to rise up.

What was beneath the surface? Was it an earthquake? Did the vibrations of an earthquake trouble the waters with such force that they began to rise up? Are the plumes of smoke (or misty fog) from an underwater volcano? No clue.  What is beneath the surface of the water, disturbing it?
I quickly saw the statue of liberty with water up to her waist. She was not laying on her side or destroyed, as some have seen. It was just as though the water had risen to the midsection of the statue.

Was the statue just to indicate that something is to occur on the eastern side of the country? I was seeing the statue as if my eyes were sitting upon the water, at water level. In this scene, the waters were not chaotic; it just appeared that the water was up to waist level. A thought – could it mean submarines with a periscope off the east coast of America?

Although the Lord has recently told me to look at many of the prophetic words He gives me from a global point of view, certain details will be more specific. The Statue of Liberty is clearly indicative of the United States, east coast.
The last thing I saw where hundreds of arrows up in the sky and falling upon a target on the ground. So numerous were the arrows that the target upon the ground was blackened, covered in them. Two times I saw the hundreds of arrows in the sky.  There was nothing to indicate ‘where’ in the world this was.

What I understood was that a powerful attack was going to completely wipe some area out. It would be ruins. It will be done in one successful attack, obviously with ‘weapons’ shot from the sky. Or could it be a warning of an enemy attack spiritually, an onslaught? I cannot pretend to know, but simply report what I saw.

Since I was not asleep (although I had my eyes closed when I saw these things), I got up.  Hours later when I retired, the exact same scenarios, in the exact same order and detail repeated itself. That is it!

If anyone has any insight, your comments on the blog or emails are welcome.

Last Days Deception

At this point, I am going to share something that was written in 2007. I was already being troubled in my spirit about false teachings and prophecies. I will let the article speak for itself. Discern and please take it to the Lord. God loves His people and is an excellent Father and Leader. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, look to Him.

It was a long article (surprised?), and I shall be presenting excerpts. It could use editing, but I will present it ‘as is’.

To the People of All Nations - An Exhortation

February 17, 2007 - 11:23 am

There is something I desire to share for it has been on my heart for some time now. It has caused confusion, division, needless suffering - in fact, it has struck against the very foundation of the faith of countless.

IT IS THE LAST of the last days and so we were forewarned to be alert, to watch and pray, for great deception would come upon the lands - upon the nations of the world. The deception falls as a cloak of great darkness, such a great putrid darkness and foreboding, ah but we must not fear. It is a darkness such has not been seen before, nor will it be seen again for so Jesus Christ forewarned.

It is all in preparation for the coming of the Antichrist [whatever person or system this may be] who will cause many to take a mark and bow their knee to Baal, Satan, the father of lies and the master of illusion and deception. For the darkness is as his shadow [the Antichrist, the one who raises himself up as God], and as he approaches, the shadow falls first and great evil - great deception - great darkness falls upon the land.

Sin and the evil of people is rampant. Thus the ‘falling away’ has begun; thus the strong delusion goes out from the Lord for those who will not receive truth. As a woman in travail, so shall it INTENSIFY as the hour of delivery approaches. For just as the children of Satan are manifesting, so are the sons of God.

To my understanding, the “sons of God” means that those who are truly God’s (male and female alike), walking in His ways, obedient to His lead, His commandments, His Word, holding fast to Jesus are manifesting (fruit). 

Simultaneously, so are the false (tares, disobedient children etc) manifesting. The false are being revealed. Why? It is nearing harvest time, and the labourers are being sent out. The tares are spotted easily at harvest time.

For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. [Rom 8:19]
That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation (world), among whom you shine as lights in the world [Phil 2:15]

There are things that have angered me. Oh, not at first; at first these things confused me; they even shook me. They brought doubts, strong doubts, but with those doubts came fear. With this fear, my very sanity felt threatened. These things even struck at the very foundation of my faith...even beat upon it mercilessly, but thanks be to God, who is the ROCK of my foundation.

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

But the BEST thing all of this did was to cause me to seek God desperately, for I had to know truth. My heart broke at the very thought of deception, or traditions of men or the doctrines of devils. I sought God for He tells us to, and He promises to lead us into all truth when we trust in Him and obey Him.

Then in seeking God, there came true humility, a brokenness; a sense of betrayal; a sense of being completely and utterly poured out... even undone! I repented of religion, even though I have not had much teaching nor have I been faithful or loyal to any one particular church.

When I did try to attend a church (several, but never loyal to one, curiosity visits or perhaps searching, searching…), it seemed that I was never truly welcomed and often rejection was first sensed, then it (rejection) would come.
I was literally (physically) thrown out of one church and that was the most incredible experience. At first, I thought God Himself (Christ) had rejected me. 

(Note* - I was not yet saved. I was searching. When I got thrown out, it would be 13 (interesting number) years before I ever set foot at a church door again. That is how seriously it affected me. I was young, early twenties.

I believed God had rejected me (all because I was badly beaten up at the time, almost unrecognizable and yes, I had had three strong drinks to help the pain). For my ugliness (appearance) I suppose, plus the hint of alcohol on the breath, I was thrown out. I was not unruly or belligerent.
I had been asked what happened to me, I had simply stated “life, life happened to me”, and next thing I knew, I was out the door. What a horrible, helpless feeling, Years later (as stated), God in His mercy reminded me (when I was going through the “forgiveness process”) that Jesus came to His own, and they received Him NOT.

Still, I had to be absolutely free of any religious spirit! Pride was another that I wanted no part of; false pride aka false humility, wicked pride, for pride tags the religious spirit. In fact, pride doesn't just tag the religious spirit, it CONTROLS it! They walk in unison, as one, totally blended and complementary, one to another. T’was such a ‘religious spirit’ that crucified the Lord Jesus Christ, my Saviour [my Y'shua].

There was also repentance of great fear. But the fear I repented of was fear of man and fear of death. Fear of man can also be subtle in its presentation; but it is the most subtle in its hidden state.

Better to Please God Rather than Man

I do not speak of the fear one gets when they are pulled over for speeding or questioned by the police. That is fear of man, yes, yet its presentation is obvious. I speak of the fear of man where we hunger for, or are dependent upon or easily moved by flatteries or the opinions of man.

If the crowd is against something you say, or if they reject you, are you ‘moved’ by their ‘opinion’? Are you so moved that you change direction, or become silent, even if you know that what you say or do is TRUTH and you are in obedience to the Lord? Someone once said that silence is a form of acceptance. Martin Luther King, Jr once stayed, "A time comes when silence is betrayal."

That makes sense, but it also must be balanced. Almighty God told us that there is a time and season for everything under the sun, including a time to speak and a time to be silent. Truly, we need His wisdom to lead us!

It is so easy to give a message from the Lord if the recipients or hearers of the Word are rooting you on, or shouting ‘hallelujah’ and ‘amen’. Ah, it is so very encouraging, is it not?

But, what if the crowd, even your friends and family, come against your message? What if it is not well-received? What if it is rejected, even if it is in obedience to the Lord and lines up with His word? What if they tell you that you have lost your mind and they become angered, upset or oppose you boldly and openly?

Are you moved? Do you sway? Do you then begin to doubt that you even heard from the Lord at all, even if it is completely scriptural [not twisted or taken out of context], then what? Is your face set as flint? Do you stand strong for the Lord?

I used to doubt that I had heard from the Lord when this happened. I would come down on myself so hard and repent, when I had simply OBEYED the Lord. The day came, during a sorrowful time with the Lord, that He kindly showed me that this happens when ‘self’ is not crucified (fear of man’s opinions, rejection). He also showed me that 'fear of man' accompanies a 'spirit of rejection.'

When our adversary speaks through someone close to us, his intent and strategy is to shake us and cause us to doubt. And don't think that just because the adversary speaks through someone, that they belong to him or that they are evil, even if that ‘someone’ is a Christian. Not necessarily so at all.

We would do well to remember the apostle Peter. When Jesus told His men of the things that would befall Him in Jerusalem, and that He would be killed after suffering at the hands of the elders, chief priests and scribes and raised the third day, Peter rebuked Jesus and told Him to not accept that; for these things surely would not happen to Him. Then the Lord Jesus Christ had to rebuke the 'spirit' speaking through Peter.

But He turned, and said unto Peter, Get you behind Me, Satan: you are an offense unto Me: for you consider not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. [Mat 16:23]

The 'flesh' and the 'spirit' behind rejection seek to please man. In fact, rather than face the loneliness of rejection, it (spirit) would RATHER please man than to please God. A compromise happens. Double-mindedness happens. It also happens when we do not fully TRUST in our Lord God! This would be a 2 Chron 7:14 moment, if ever there was one, if we have disobeyed God in order to please man, by not offending them even when they are in error. Repent!

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. [Gal 1:10]

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. [Rom 8:8]

For the only fear I desire is the fear of God, which to me, means to be in awe of His wonder, have reverent love and honor, know His power and that He is Sovereign, as well as a willingness to submit and obey, for He is Most Holy, just and righteous.

The Lord has been long-suffering with me. I have learned much the hard way upon this journey, as have so many others who truly seek God and are desperate to know Him and serve Him.

Then, I experienced what I ascertain to be righteous anger. In what I'm going to say, I believe the Lord will expose what is in the heart. What is hidden will be exposed; perhaps not publicly, but within yourself.

God is God and there is NO OTHER. And we know, that Almighty God, the Great Spirit, our Creator sent His only begotten Son to be our Savior. Our Creator desires that we rend our heart and not our garments, and turn to the LORD our God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness.

This purifying is a necessary fire to purge us of all unrighteousness. Though we feel so all alone; He still walks with His people in the fire; never leaving nor forsaking us. He desires us to be desperate for Him, and through it all, He is glorified. He is called Faithful and True and He is.

And we also know, as stated in 2Pe 3:9The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

But let me back up some and explain what had angered me so. We know that there are atheists and agnostics, those who don’t believe in any God at all and those who believe that there is ‘something’, maybe A' god out there, or those who say, ‘God is real, but He didn't need to send anyone for us, a Savior like the one called Jesus.’
Agnostics will say there is a God - somewhere 'out there'; a ‘higher power’ as it were. These are the lost that we endeavor to reach by our representation of Christ in us and the Word of God.

We also know that there are those who worship Satan. There are Luciferians, Satanists, warlocks (they are witches), dark pagans, Wiccans, LHP occultism (Left Hand Pathers), psychics, fortune-tellers, those ‘guided’ by ‘spirits’, shamans, witch doctors, New Agers, even ministers of unrighteousness and (false) prophets [of Baal, I might add] - whatever title they walk under or position they claim to hold, etc, they are all antichrists.

For these wicked ones walk in arrogant rebellion against Jesus the Christ, and we are told in God’s Word, that rebellion is nigh unto witchcraft. They are held captive, deceived prisoners and need deliverance. They are children of disobedience, whose father is the devil.

These we also endeavor to reach (when and if led), but be armored up, covered in the blood of the Lamb, for the ‘god of this world’ (Satan) has great POWER also, or else these would not follow. However, if Christ is IN you, then greater is HE [Christ] that is in you, than he [Satan] that is in the world. [1Jn 4:4]  There IS authority and power in the blood and the name of our precious King, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the True Messiah.

Yet, we must seek God, fast and pray, go where HE alone directs us because many of these are infiltrating the churches and they are infiltrating the internet and are in the world.  They are even calling themselves Christians, God's anointed, God’s (false) apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists.

Yes, they hold their titles and positions in Satan's armies; they boldly put emphasis on their titles. They are as wolves in sheep's clothing, sent out into the flock, to scatter them, to cause division and confusion and to destroy them from within. Remember, they serve the father of lies and the master of illusion and deception.

This is not what angers me, for I know and remember very well, where the Lord Jesus brought me from. He delivered me, saved me, brought healing and restored me. He set my feet upon the Rock and He alone built this house.

Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain. [Ps 127:1]

We know that we ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. There are some who truly believe that they are ‘good people’ and they have no need of a Savior because they obey the laws of the land and do all the right things...(and from the fleshly viewpoint, they do present as good people, albeit good people that are without God; lost good people).

These kind are most difficult to reach, yet still, not as difficult as those who have no need for anything. They are ‘happy with life’ and hard is the heart against the things of God. These also can be difficult to reach, but not too difficult for the Creator and Savior, our Redeemer.

There are also those who say, “Oh I believe in God. I talk to Him [pray] all the time’, 'I give, I help out, I tithe, I feed the poor' -  I, I, I... but then when the storms prevail and the winds beat against the house, they fall. These are difficult to reach. But with GOD, nothing is impossible.

No, what has angered me most, I suppose, are the wolves in sheep's clothing, the goats, the tares, the 'ministers of unrighteousness'... all those who come in the name of the Lord, who say they love and obey the Lord, who are themselves deceived. Only God can reveal if they are deceived or if they are in fact, purposely deceiving for gain - for the lusts of the eyes and the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life are most seductive, enticing and alluring.

The love of money (lust of flesh, pride) is also a strong temptation and many there are that succumb to it, not counting the cost. They love their lives too much to lay their life down before a holy and worthy Almighty God. They are tempted by the god of this world. Who is the god of this world, the prince of the power of the air and the one who seeks to steal, kill and destroy? Satan!

In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, least the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. [2Cor 4:4]

Temptation comes to us in our weak areas. It is powerful. If it were not powerful over the flesh, then why would Satan bother tempting Jesus when He was in the desert, the wilderness, for forty days?

Yet, Christ did not give in to any of the temptations. Although we know that Satan tempted Jesus with suicidal suggestions (took him to a pinnacle), food – ‘make these stones bread’, (to break His fast) and great kingdoms (wealth, power, control), I am sure that Satan tempted the Lord in every single way imaginable with things from the lust of the eyes, to the lust of the flesh to the pride of life.  

And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, If You be the Son of God, cast Yourself down from hence (here): For it is written He shall give His angels charge over You, to keep You: And in their hands shall bear You up, least at any time You dash Your foot against a stone. [Lk 4:9-11]

See that?  Interesting! Firstly, scripture states: [...] cast Yourself down (throw Yourself off) [suicide], but notice the verses? Secondly, the verses are 9 to 11 (911) - what an amazing God of order. GOD knew what He was doing, even if ‘man’ broke His Word up into chapters and verses with numbers.  A verse on temptation of suicide, numbered 911 - only God/Yhwh!

I bet when Satan told Y'shua/Jesus to turn the stones into bread that the air filled with the smell of fresh bread.  Jesus was fasting and hungry, yet Christ did not give into any of it, so finally, Satan left him.

But many of these false teachers or pastors, evangelists and yes, even false prophets are well educated. Not all of them are; some come from impoverished and varied backgrounds, for Satan counterfeits (mirrors) all that the Almighty God does. Many of these people are articulate. They have the intelligence and knowledge of the world, which men love to worship.

They are charismatic, talented, gifted, which men also adore and love to worship. Yet they have sleight of hand and words that slide into the ears like a balmy breeze or dripping honey. They may or may not be what the world calls good looking, but if they have intelligence and are gifted or talented, looks can be bypassed.

They know scripture and they know how to use it, but the Holy Spirit reminded me of how Satan used the Word of God against Jesus when he came to tempt Jesus in the desert, the wilderness. So we know that Satan is not afraid to use the Word of God. He knows it well.

They admit that Jesus is Christ, the Anointed One, and will even say, 'He is the way of salvation.' Yet again, the Lord reminded me of the woman in Acts, who was following Paul around for some time, saying,

These men are servants of the most high God and show us the way unto salvation. [Act 16:17]

Does that not “sound like words from a godly person”? Yet, the woman was speaking through a spirit of divination. False prophets, teachers, ministers that appear as “ministers of righteousness” all use scripture which seems to exalt God, and yet, even the devils cannot deny God, they believe and tremble. [Jam 2:9]

These people come from all kinds of backgrounds, whether rich or poor, educated or uneducated, functional or dysfunctional backgrounds. They are usually good looking, but not always. What they lack in looks, they make up for in wit, humour, charisma. They have the ability to reach the multitudes, with signs and lying wonders following them, performing good works in the sight of men (made known).

They seduce the people in such ways that it could even confound the wise or ‘almost’ deceive the elect, IF it were possible, if the true believers are caught unawares because of not clinging to Jesus/Y'shua, or at a vulnerable time, a weak moment. [operative word is... IF. IF it were possible and brethren, yes it is possible, if we are not constant with the Lord God, abiding in Jesus].

Yet we are told in 2 Corinthians 11: and vs 14, where it says, And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. [2Cor 11:14, 15]

And women [yes, I am one also] (and you men as well) be especially careful, whether you are married or if you are alone, or even miserably alone; it matters not to the enemy.  Satan seeks to steal, kill and destroy. The enemy knows our weaknesses because he has unholy watchers that report to him. 

Devils (demons) are assigned to bring down and destroy whosoever he can, for great is his hatred against the Almighty God's creation. Divide and conquer is the plan of the adversary, the enemy of our souls.

Truly our Lord is with us always, and He has marvelously provided for us. We can pour out our heart to Him and He comforts us. Therefore we can be joyous and grateful for His perfect love and tender mercies. I delight in My King for surely He provides all my needs (spiritually and physically), according to His riches in glory.

Make sure your feet are upon the Rock, seek and abide in the true Vine, which is Christ and allow Him alone to lead you in all things. We are called to be Proverbs 31 women, walking humbly and in submission, abiding in 2 Corinthians 13 love.  For when we walk in His love, we will walk in His agape love! We will not be as a clanging symbol, for we will walk in wisdom, in His Holy Spirit.

For we women face the danger of becoming silly women, moved by every wind of doctrine, IF we are not dead to SELF, and are looking to have any FLESHLY needs met, whether physical, emotional or material.

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

The Lord wholly understands loneliness and solitude. He spent much time alone with the Father. He truly understands. But we must strive to be obedient to the Lord in ALL things, including who is head over us single women. The Lord must first be the Head. We must devote ourselves to Him and seek ONLY truth, for He is the way, the truth and the life. For our God shall supply all our needs, according to HIS riches in GLORY!  Our house must be built upon the ROCK!

So for men (and women), it is written...

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy; Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
[2Tim 3:1-7]

So, how do we know; how do we discern? We discern only through the Word of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We learn through experience also. Pray and ask for discernment and understanding. Only Yhwh/God is all-knowing and all-wise!

Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? [1Kin 3:9]

We cannot lean on our own understanding. It will fail us. We cannot trust our emotions, for they are ever-changing and emotion often over-rides logic. But when we acknowledge Him, and trust Him with faith as a child, He shall direct our steps. He will lead us into all truth. 

We know that by their fruits we will know them. But this I must say, sometimes it is easy to discern those who abide in Christ; other times, it is very difficult to discern, even when we DO abide in Christ. Satan is cunning, clever and crafty. We must be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and be dependent on God constantly. He will never fail us. Never!

Sometimes the fruit appears to be good at first, but inside it is poisonous. In time, the fruit withers and leads to death. Sometimes, we have to be patient. Lean on the Lord; He will lead us into all truth. Ask Him to open your eyes and ears and ask Him to expose the false. He will! Trust Him to lead you, if you honestly seek truth. Search the scriptures; pray. Wait upon God.

He will direct our steps when we trust in Him alone and not man. He KNOWS which ministries are doing His work and whose heart is towards Him to obey Him, and to glorify only Him.

He KNOWS whose heart is for fellow man, to snatch them out of the hands of the wicked one and great darkness, and to bring them to Christ and into the light. He knows! And He WILL direct us where to give and when to give, when we come to Him and ask Him, for He alone shall be glorified and His glory He will not share with another. He alone is worthy!

End excerpt

I will end this part with two things, first a word from Battle above the Clouds – Part 7 (written in February 2013). (It is still in the archives). I would like to present a couple of excerpts from it. Then, I will end with a few words that preacher man, David Wilkerson spoke one time about false teachers (teachings).

From Battle above the Clouds – Part 7

Now, I hope I do not confuse the reader, but in the “Battle above the Clouds” article, I had included ‘excerpts’ from another article called, The Watchman Repented. It is all written by me, so it is the message that it important, as it is to the glory of the Lord. I was just one pen He was using at the time.

Excerpt: (from Battle above the Clouds)
There were two men walking. They looked militant in that they both wore the same clothing; they seemed robotic; without expression, staring straight ahead. Each held a chained leash in their hand, which was attached to a collar that was around the neck of a two-headed dragon, which was straining ahead, angry at the leash and breathing fire. The dragon was being held back by the men who held it by the leash.

Beside the dragon, walked a third man, but I could only see his legs from just below the knees and his feet. He moved alongside the dragon, yet for the most part, he could not be seen, as most of his body was cloaked in a fire-cloud. 

They all were heading towards the East, from a westerly direction. I sensed that when they reached their destination, the dragon would be unleashed. The man cloaked with a cloud of fire moved at the same pace as the dragon, yet did not touch the beast. Neither did the cloud of fire touch the beast.

End dream 

Could the above dream from so long ago have anything to do with Obama going to Israel next month?  I remember when I re-posted this a year or so ago, one reader suggested that the two heads of the dragon meant two nations.  The dragon and men are heading east from the west.

Or could it be saying where trouble will start (in America) and spread eastward? OR is it revealing that the West goes against two nations in the East (Middle East), or is it that he aligns with two nations?

(End excerpt) (from The Watchman Repented)

The two nations are linked with Satan (the dragon), controlled by him or worshipping him by either his name or some other name (a false god) (same) They are holding back the two-headed dragon on a leash, breathing fire (fire would means destruction...war?) Who is it that walks in the cloud of fire?

Initially, I thought it may be Satan. One reader wrote to me and stated that he thought the one in the cloud of fire was God, who is sovereign and in control; that it is part of God's plan (allowing this). He may be quite right!

The reader (thank you Stephen) gave me much food for thought. Still, I am unsure of the meaning. Any other input would be greatly appreciated. I had forgotten the dream, but it was recently brought to remembrance.


Draw closer to Me – closer to your Lord and cease evil doings, that I may give you victory. I, the Lord will work in ways that you cannot even imagine, but be ye holy!

The sin of the great whore [mystery Babylon] has spread throughout the world. The stench of her has reached My nostrils. Many countries shall rise up against her, for I shall raise them up!

The day of terror will soon be upon the people. I will have mercy then on those who obey now [today]: those who depart from sin and draw closer to Me. I will give VICTORY to those who obey. 

Study the word fervently. Write it upon your heart for it is your sharp sword. I will cause your mind to drink thirstily [as a dry sponge]. Then I will place My seal upon it and you shall remember My word. I seal My children with My holy Spirit. I am Yhwh Elohim, the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

I, Yhwh call – who shall answer?

I command – who will obey? Who will trust?

Will I come and find faith amongst My people?

(also on The Watchman Repented)

On May 4, 2009 I awoke suddenly, for I had seen great fire, great fire as rain – what I call ‘rain fire’, upon the land. The danger [judgment] is fast approaching (these were the words in my mind).
I went back to sleep, but awoke suddenly again. This time I had seen an army of fierce, angry skeletons upon horses. These had weapons – guns and swords. Red light glowed from their eyes (either full of demons or seeing blood in their eyes, perhaps both). Blood is what they come for –murderers! I fell back asleep and dreamt no more. 

When I awoke in the morning, I remembered the ‘rain fire’ and the ‘skeleton riders upon horses’ and that ‘blood is what they come for – murderers’. I pondered it, thinking the rain fire may be from a volcano or worse, nuclear war. 

It would be safe to conclude that it means war (guns/swords), fire "rains" upon victims (rain falls from the sky, either from on high or close to ground). They will slaughter many, massacre, possible genocide.

I sensed strongly that both meant short dreams revealed war, and that the skeleton riders upon horses were spiritually dead, and they were full of hatred. They would slay many. I opened the Word of God and came upon the following…

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. [Rev 14:19, 20]

From there, I went to chapter 18 of revelation and read.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her. [Rev 18:4, 5, 8] 

(A thought - maybe the skeletons represent those who are possessed, or a super-soldier, a manchurian candidate, or nanotechology, so much technology that it is almost unlimited what the government is capable of achieving...

BUT the more pressing thought: who has guns and swords? who rides upon horses? The symbolic skeletons upon horses means that whoever they are - they bring much death! I believe it also means that they are spiritually dead - they do not follow after Jesus/Y'shua)

I still do not have full understanding of all of this; it has not been given me yet.

Skeleton Army and Exodus  (below is from a lengthy report on dreams and visions posted in July 2009 - The Watchman Repented

Note* Update - the link has been removed for above article February 2014. All articles from 2008 - 2012 have been removed to put on another website. It is not yet posted there (not much is, due to lack of time).

May 24, 2009 I had a dream. I heard a great thundering. As I turned and looked in the direction of the sound, I saw an army riding horses; skeletons [yes, again] riding towards me. In the dream, I thought I was done for, but they rode right past me.
I heard more thundering. Looking, I saw more horses with skeletons riding them, but these ones were armored. Their faces were seen through their helmets or some kind of covering on the face. These too rode past me.

Suddenly, a friend appeared, grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the vehicle. Driving, I asked, ‘Where are we going?’ ‘Shush’, my friend said. I noticed all the traffic was going in the opposite direction, yet somehow I knew we were going in the right direction and our way was clear of traffic and obstacles.

(*note* - how often does the Lord direct our steps in a way that is the exact opposite of what the world is doing, or in a way that seems foolish to most people?)

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought [nothing at all] things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.[1Cor 1:27-29]

This now brings me up to the 7th day of June, this year of 2009 [I have shared dreams, visions, words which I was led to share in this article]

On the 7th day of June, this year, I was looking out the window, taking a break. It was my 7th day of a fast. In my spirit man, I heard the Great Spirit Chief, the Almighty Lord God, Yhwh Elohim say, ‘I AM the Lord God of Israel. I am here. See the stone rolled away? I am risen. 

You overcome by My BLOOD and the WORD of your testimony. [Rev 12:11] 
I AM the Word, come in the flesh and I live in you. Obedience now is crucial.’

As I listened to His voice within, I looked up into the sky, at the clouds and I began to see things. Following the prompting of the most Holy Spirit, I grabbed paper and a pen.
Death is coming to America.’ I saw in the clouds women and men wailing, full of confusion and fear. I saw many being wrongly imprisoned. I saw a woman huddling with a child (children murdered) and I saw great death, and a famine.

‘Men who wear black will soon become a common sight all over the place. They are as wolves; men who are possessed or controlled by demons.’ There were multitudes homeless and being ‘rounded up’; grouped together.
I saw the death rider with a scythe in his hand. ‘He shall sweep over the land.

I saw great waters coming. I saw smoke of massive volumes. I saw angry, disgruntled leaders filled with hatred. Soon there shall be the manifestation of the leader who appears as one of ‘light’ [appears as Christ], yet he is opposed to Christ. 

He is arising. He is here. He is not white-skinned (neither is he black). He will give fair speeches and seem as a ‘god’ to many.

I saw great masses of people fighting amongst themselves, betraying each other. I saw chaos and mayhem. It seemed as though there were two separate wars; one amongst people within the same nation; and another where ‘nations’ were coming against a nation’. 

I sensed it was the USA will come under attack; but it broadened, spread into Canada and southerly into Mexico, and beyond (South America?). It most assuredly consumed (greatly affected) North America. 

There were places of safety, shelter. There were angels commanded by God to lead and protect His people…some appeared as mere men. Many will die - there is an appointed time for us all. We will be protected up until the appointed time.

Then within me, I heard, Give up all forms of lust [lust of eyes, lust of flesh, pride of life] and frivolous spending. Do your part and I will do Mine. Look to Christ. My angels are all around you. 

Obey Me as I direct your steps. My angels go forth at My command. It is time to arise in willing obedience and DO. Lo, I am with you. Trust and hold fast to your faith, for without faith, it is impossible to please Me, for he that comes to Me must believe that I AM, and that I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. [Heb 11:6]

In service to the King † 

And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. [Rev 5:13]
My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war [Jer4:19]
July 19, 2009 – 11:14 am

The Word of the Great Spirit Chief, Yhwh Elohim, speaks strongly to those who have an ear to hear.  How great is the faith and love of their King? : beyond human scope and comprehension.  

With all the ‘warnings’ sounding in the ears, and ‘wonders’ and ‘strange happenings’ before the eyes, which causes all, (all encompassing) from the greatest to the least to be perplexed and murmur.  Those who hear; those of the true Body will not fear, for the Head (the King) speaks words of wisdom, understanding and counsel.

He confides secrets to His people, speaking of that which is and that which is to come. He utters wise counsel; He speaks forth direction and guides their steps by what He commands.  The wise and obedient give ear and obey.  Their faith goes into action and their strength is of the high and holy One who is their Chief; their Commander.

April 5, 2009 [04/05/09]  11:11 am

The trying [testing] of your FAITH will come in many forms.  Just as Abraham, it will seem more than you can bear at times, but obedience came through all you suffered.  
Now comes a trial to see if it is pure.  Yea, at times, you may wonder, ‘Did the Lord really ask that?’  Your flesh will bring doubt; Satan would join in with adding fear…’What if it wasn’t God, won’t I be a fool?’  I speak once, yea twice, but men perceive it not.  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 written word.

It is being [and has been] drilled into your spirit to seek Me in all things, no matter how trivial.  Come and STAY in My presence, even if the flesh screams a hundred reasons why you can leave.  You will know when it is time to go about your business.  

Think upon Jesus your Messiah in the Garden of Gethsemane. He left only to see if His disciples were obeying Him to watch, and pray, yet he found them asleep three different times.  Disappointed but not undaunted, He returned to cry out alone to Me.  His flesh resisted so profoundly; so great was His travail and earnest that He sweat drops of blood. To bear all the sins of the world - who could bear it, but He? For this reason, Christ came. 

Have you come to that point in My presence, where flesh cries out for release?   It is true that many of you have perspired as you travailed, but not to the point of sweating blood.   Wait upon Me and your flesh will be in awe in My holy presence.  Perseverance has its rewards.  

Some of the hardest battles that a warrior endures are those he fights alone.  To pick up your cross and die to (deny) self is one of those lonely battles.  Cry out to Me.  I will strengthen you to endure in the crucifying of fleshly desires and sin.  

My resurrection power will not only restore you spiritually, but indeed, I shall be glorified through you, as Christ Jesus takes His proper place upon the throne of your heart and soul.  Yes, Christ in you, the hope of glory.   

Who calls out for repentance, warning of the second death in the lake of fire?  Who tells the wicked to forsake their ‘way’ and the unrighteous man his ‘thoughts’, saying, Turn to Me and I will have mercy on you; and to your God, for I will abundantly pardon [Is 55:7] In this (My mercy, My cleansing and sanctifying), I shall be glorified in you.

If you are hearing to seek Me, then there is still time.  Woe unto those who seek Me NOT, whilst there is the call sounding so loudly. For when judgment comes, they shall fear, for they shall be found wanting. Their idols will not save them. 

The (spiritual) death angel will bypass only those with the blood of the Lamb [Jesus the Christ and Messiah] – yea, His holy blood upon the windows of their soul and the doorposts of their heart. 
For the time of a new exodus is here.  Multitudes will begin exodus spiritually [to come of Eygpt, Babylon] whilst many [but not all] will begin a physical exodus (this word be upon the nations of the world).  How will you know what to do unless you seek Me, willing to obey? Diligently seek Me while I may be found; call upon Me while I am near [Is 55:6] 
Shake yourself from the dust, arise and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose yourself from the bonds of thy neck, o captive daughter of Zion. For thus says the Lord God, My people went down aforetime into Eygpt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.  

Now therefore, what have I here, Says the Lord, that My people is taken away for nought [nothing]?  They that rule over them (My people) make them ‘to howl’ (great anguish and sorrow); says the Lord and My name continually every day is blasphemed. Therefore My people shall know My name; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He that does speak Behold, it is I. 
[Is 52:2,4-6]

How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of he that brings good tidings; that publishes peace; that brings good tidings of good; that publishes salvation, that says unto Zion, thy God reigns.

Thy watchmen shall lift up their voice: with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.  The Lord has made bare his holy arm; in the eyes ofALL THE NATIONS’: and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. [Is 58:8; 10] 

[Jn 4:24 declares: God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth]

Listen carefully to Me and you will know in your spirit what is required of you to do.  For as with the old, so with the new, for I am the same yesterday, today and forever.  First the inside of the cup must be cleaned, then the outside.  First the beam must be removed from your own eye, then you can see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.

Depart ye, depart ye, go you out from there, touch no unclean thing, go ye out of the midst of her [Egypt and Babylon], be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord. For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight [flee], for the Lord will GO BEFORE YOU (when you leave), and the God of Israel will be your re-reward. [Is 56:8, 10-12]

Behold my servant [Jesus the Messiah] shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and held very high.  So shall he sprinkle MANY NATIONS; the kings shall shut their mouths at Him; for THAT which had not been told them ‘SHALL THEY SEE’’ and THAT which they had not heard, shall they consider [read Isaiah chapter 52]

The ways of Babylon have invaded My ekklesia; yea, but they who seek Me, them shall I save for I have called them out, as they sought Me.  My ekklesia, My people will assemble in chosen places.

Letter of Instruction - Sealed by the King
The righteous perish, and no man lays it to heart; and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the EVIL TO COME. [Is 57:1] … Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of My people. For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, ‘I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.  

For I will not contend forever, neither will I be wroth, for the spirit should fail before Me and the souls which I have made.  I have seen his ways and will heal him; I will lead him also and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. [Is 57:14-16]

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice as a trumpet, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.  Yet they seek Me DAILY and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of Me the ordinances of JUSTICE: they take delight in approaching to God [Is 58:1-2]

Is this not a fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?  Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry, and you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? When you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh?  

Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you, the GLORY of THE LORD shall be your rereward. Then shall you call, and [I] the Lord shall answer and shall say, Here I am.  

If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger [pointing fingers] and speaking vanity, and if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul: then shall they light rise in obscurity and thy darkness be as the noonday [Is 58: 6 -10]

And I, the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones, and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.  And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places, you shall raise up the FOUNDATIONS [Yhwh, the Rock - Christ Jesus the cornerstone] of many generations, and you shall be called, the repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. [Is 58:11-14]

Repent of all that is not of Me, and delight in seeking Me, so shall you call your walls Salvation; and your gates Praise. I the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and I shall be your glory.

I say…Go through, go through the gates, prepare ye the ways of the people, cast up, cast up the highway, gather out stones, lift up a STANDARD for the people.

Behold the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion: Behold, thy salvation comes; behold His reward is with him and his work before him.  And they shall call them redeemed, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord and you shall be called SOUGHT OUT, A city NOT FORSAKEN. [Is 62: 10-12]

I have stayed with you through the false labour.  Now is the time to bring forth.

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 and there shall you be delivered, there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. [Micah 4:10]

Now also many NATIONS are gathered against you that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. But they know NOT the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they His counsel, for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor [wheat into the barn]

NOW is the time to bring to fruition all that I have told you I would do. It is simply a matter of obedience fulfilled.  You know what has been required of you.  Delay no longer; thus I command you.  

April, 2012 
For a warrior cries many tears in silent seclusion, far from the battlefield.  Yet, the warrior will rise up again, strengthened by time with Me.  How long is the steel forged and beaten to make sure that the steel is not too soft or too brittle?   

The hammering drives out impurities.  From the making of the steel, to the proper time to remove it from the fire, to the forging and hammering, to the cooling in the waters at just the right time, indeed, much goes into the making of a fine sword.

The sword is a mighty weapon in the hand of the qualified warrior.

Words of Brother David Wilkerson (now deceased)

(Wilkerson was preaching about “seeker-friendly” churches and “false teachings” [in his sermon, I think he was referring to the prosperity gospel, but false teaching is false teaching])

I came across this sermon some days back. It is uncertain if it’s the whole sermon or a portion. Link to video will be included at end. I was astounded and so blessed with the way the Lord leads to confirm His messages to His people. Bless the Lord!

Transcription from sermon- Excerpt below:

“It sounds good; what they say sounds very good. It sounds spiritual in its goals; it sounds like Jesus is the central theme. Folks, I’m not going to name any names because I’m not talking about the character of these men, I’m talking about the gospel that they preach.

I am here to remind you that Paul the apostle warned of the coming of another gospel that we have not preached. He said there is coming another gospel that is going to preach another Jesus. You’ll hear his name; it will sound sweet, but it’s not the Jesus that I preach, Paul said. It’s not the true Jesus. Paul goes on…Paul was amazed, he said that you are so removed that called you into the grace of Christ to another gospel.

Folks, listen to me. There is in the land right now thousands of people sitting under another gospel, another Jesus being preached by ministers who have lost the touch of God, that have been transformed into angels of light that come to deceive, if possible, even the elect of God.

Paul warns the church; its really not another gospel but a perversion of the gospel of Christ. It’s really not another Pual said, but there be some that trouble you and pervert or change the gospel of Christ. He said they’re going to change it; they’re going to accommodate the sinner.  They’re going to accommodate their pleasures; they’re going to accommodate their needs, and they’re going to design a gospel with their own Christ and with their own doctrine.

Then this awful warning from Paul, But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you but that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed…let him be accursed. 
Folks, I didn’t say that; the apostle Paul said it. If anyone preaches another gospel than the one you’ve heard; if anyone preaches anything but the crucified Christ; if anyone preaches anything that appeases man in his sins, that’s not the gospel you’ve heard from me, Paul said, and if anyone does, let him be accursed.

And he said it’s going to be dangerous because it’s going to come by seemingly pious, sincere ministers. That is why the doctrine called antinomianism so dangerous because it was in the hands of some very fine, good living men like Dr. Crisp, who was one of the founders of the anti-law movement back during the Puritan age…anti-law; they cast aside the burden of the law. And the reason it was so accepted was because the men who preached it seemed to be so pious.

I tremble when I hear Paul say that Satan is going to come right into the church, disguised as an angel of light. He’s going to infiltrate into the church with his own ministers. They will come angel-like he said, preaching a false gospel of righteousness; for such are false prophets, false apostles, deceitful workers transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ, and no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing that his ministers also be transformed into ministers of righteousness whose end shall be according to their works. Paul said they are going to come and glory in the flesh. They are going to glory in their might, their money; they’re going to glory in their bigness, their numbers, and they’re going to glory in the fact that they’re so contemporary. They’re going to glory in their acceptance by the world.

Jesus warned, Beware of false prophets who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing. They will come like gentle sheep, sincere, intelligent, bright, but He said inside they are ravening wolves.  And folks, Jesus gave that in the context of his message, He said because straight is the gate, narrow is the way which leadeth to life and few there be that find it, and the very next verse He said, beware of false prophets.

They’re going to come and seek clothing, but they are ravening wolves. It is Christ Himself warning us, false prophets, false pastors, false evangelists, posing as submissive sheep. They come saying the way is not that narrow, the way is not that straight, and they are going to accommodate. They are going to change the gospel to suit the needs of the people.

Jesus puts his finger on the motives behind them – ambition. The word ravening here; ravening wolves in the Greek means ‘starved for recognition’, recognition and gratification. Men are going to rise ‘starved’ to make it. You see it in the business world; you see it on your job, people trying to climb the ladder and get recognition quickly, and folks, it’s now in the ministry, full-blown. Young men so ambitious to be one of the ‘big boys’, to have the biggest church, the biggest numbers, the biggest crowds.
He said they’re ravening wolves, and Jesus left no doubt about what He meant. And this is simply what he meant. There are going to be struggling pastors in the land and they’re going to look out and see all of the striving and competition for numbers and recognition, and there’s going to be a growing pressure to expand and be successful. 

They see the measuring of success by how big the buildings are and how many people attend the church on Sunday morning, and these struggling pastors who have been faithful up to now, he sees bright young men come down the street nearby and suddenly overnight he’s pasturing thousands of people in a seeker-friendly church.

A young man less experienced, a young man who has not paid his dues as far as this man is concerned…he’s still preaching an old-fashioned gospel of the cross and its claims and he’s struggling because not many people want to hear the cross. Jesus said, few there are going to be that find it – wide is the road that leads to destruction, narrow is the way, Jesus said, straight and narrow.
Jesus is warning, He’s saying to the pastors, brother, man of God, watch out. 

The moment you look out on the competition; the moment that seed gets in your heart, the devil is going to put one of those wolves in sheep’s clothing right in your path. He’s going to seduce you into an ungodly ambition to compete, to be one of these big boys, and he’s going to tempt you for church growth at any cost, and it will cost the soul of the pastor.

I read Paul’s warning in second Corinthians, eleventh chapter about ministers being transformed into angels of light, who believe they are preaching righteousness, but they have been changed somehow into a tool of Satan, and I say God, can that be possible? Lord, is that really reasonable that a man who starts right can change, and become a tool of the devil in the pulpit?  

Am I to conclude that a man of God can start right, can be separate for a season, preach the true gospel, but something of hell lays ahold of his heart and his spirit, something demonic, and he changes and becomes a minister of Satan?

Folks, it’s happening every day; it’s happening right here in NYC. When men become dissatisfied with preaching a simple gospel and they get bored enough, and they’re not praying and they’re not seeking God, and get their eyes on people and numbers, and they want to be just like everyone else, “I want to be a success!” – 

And so it comes out and I hear it everywhere I go, I hear pastors say, I saw it on television in the apartment we were renting on a vacation, Sunday morning, and listening to these pastors… “We have 2,500 this year; my goal next year is 4500”, at any cost, any way, to reach that goal.

It’s not wrong to pray for growth, but if it’s only to feed human ambition, it will change the man into a devil.
