Just as I am in the process of exposing hidden things of the enemy and sin within My Church, I am also in the process of unveiling those people that I have kept hidden with Me for My purposes. They are the hidden ones, lovers of truth, who through fire and trial have been proven by Me to accomplish My purposes within My Church. Change is coming. It is not political in nature but change that will set to right things that have been awry in My house. They have been commissioned for such a time as this and will speak with authority – to call back into order that which has been disordered and into alignment that which has been out of place.
They will not be politically correct, and fear will have no hold over them. They are readying My Bride for My return with a call to genuine repentance and unity within My Body so that it will be without spot or wrinkle. These have served among My people and been discipled into their callings, marked by accountability to their fellow ministers and Me. Though they have felt out of place up to this point, I am now releasing them, having put My Word in their mouths to speak forth truth. They are characterized by humility and are known by Me.
Be discerning in this, for many will arise claiming an identity that I have not given them. They will attempt to forge ministries out of false motivations, seeking the promotion of self over Me, tickling the ears of the people or beating them with rods of their own making. You will recognize them by their refusal to be held accountable. They are wanderers, wells without water, having a form of stability without foundation.
Is. 51:15-16, “But I AM the LORD your God, who divided the sea whose waves roared – the LORD of hosts is His name. And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens, lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’”NKJV
My desire has always been that the nations be healed. This healing begins with you. As you walk in Me, exhibiting My love and My power, restoration and transformation can occur. Is this not the message of My Gospel that all can be restored to Me through My sacrifice and the power of My resurrection? Anything contrary to that of restoration – divisiveness, lies, gossip, disease – that bring death emotionally, physically, or spiritually is an abomination to Me and is not of My heart nor does it accomplish My purpose. Repent and flee such! For those who abide in Me have been planted as trees next to flowing, not stagnant, water, bearing the seeds of life – life everlasting that I might bring healing to you personally and to your community. It is vital that you be found in Me, allowing My Spirit to flow forth out of you and avoid that which would cause decay, that others may also be healed. I will complete that which I’ve begun in the nations, and I’ve already started this work in and with you. Rev. 22:1-3, “Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the broad street of the city. On both sides of the river was the tree of life bearing twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations, and there will no longer be any curse.” Ps. 1:2-3, “His delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.” John 7:38, “The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him. He said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were going to receive, for the Spirit hand not yet been received, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.” I Peter 1:22-23, “By obedience to the truth, having purified yourselves for sincere love of the brothers, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again – not of perishable seed but of imperishable – through the living and enduring word of God.” HCSB
Do not be deceived, I will not be mocked. If I question those whom I love, even Job who was righteous before Me, will I not also demand an account of those who twist My Word for their own gain? They are those who have a form of godliness while denying its power. It is a false gospel that seeks to enslave and place in bondage those whom I would set free. It will not be exposed at the instigation of man but by Me. Be wise, be circumspect, for I will cause all to be brought to account before Me. Be one who seeks My face. While the false wraps itself with that which is of the flesh, preventing the transformative work of the Holy Spirit, My Church, characterized by revelation, holiness, and power, will be brought to the forefront, and My people will step forth in the power of My Spirit, bringing light to the darkness. 2 Tim. 3:1-5, “But know this: difficult times will come in the last days. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to the form of religion but denying its power. Avoid these people!” HCSB
I am calling forth a people who will identify with Me in every way – those who will choose to deny themselves, taking up My redemptive work and follow Me. It is an invitation to an intimacy that transcends what they have known in the past for a passionate lifestyle lived in Me. These will be characterized by a spirit of praise, not heaviness, My strength permeating their weakness, and they, like Me, will set their faces like flint towards the assignments I have given them. Yes, My invitation is to accept an assignment to push back the darkness and move offensively against the gates of hell. These I am drawing together, each to their own position, as a unified army of heaven who will wield the weapons of their warfare with precision and accuracy, filled with the power of the Spirit, prophesying to the nations according to My heart. My words will be in their mouths, and My Name will be their battle cry. My Name is Victory! Those who will discipline themselves to come into the place of quiet communion with Me will emerge as conquering victors, standing not in their own power, but in that of the Great I AM! These are those who are hidden in Me, convinced of Me, victorious in Me, unable to be separated from Me, for they are My Children, called by My Name – Victory!!! Rom. 8:35-39, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NKJV
There is a divine craving that is coming upon My people – that of walking righteously with holiness before Me. It is a yearning for all of Me. A desire to abandon all that is of the flesh for the sake of relationship. Did I not say that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness would be filled? To the extent that you are emptied before Me and remain in Me, I will fill you anew. Yes, I am pouring out My Spirit to fill the longing of your hearts. You must, however, count the cost of such neediness. Those who stay in Me will be persecuted as I was persecuted. My promise to you is that the kingdom of heaven will be yours, not just in the future, but now. As you are continually filled and poured out for Me, there will be a connection to heaven that you have never experienced before. It will be characterized by a oneness with Me that ministers in authority with signs and wonders. Yes, I will fill those hearts that crave and pant, willing to forsake self, choosing to live and move in Me. Matt. 5:6-10, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” NKJV
Revelation is reserved for those who will dare to step beyond the veil into intimacy with Me. It is a holy place where the light of My love both exposes and covers all; a place where truth and grace meet. It is a place of selfless sacrifice – I for you, and you for Me. In this intimate place you are transformed as you are held by Me. All that is carnal in nature is stripped bare, and you are reconciled in holiness to the originality and uniqueness of the you I created and love. There is no greater revelation than that of the intimacy experienced when you see and know Me as I AM; no greater love than to lay down our lives for one another. Oh, the joy of spending time together, when you choose to step into My embrace, allowing Me to be your dwelling place! John 17:3, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” Phil. 3:8-9a, “Yet indeed I count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him.” NKJV
The enemy is attempting to frustrate you and cause you to abandon the hope that you have in Me. Do not allow it. Remember, My Child, My ways and timing are perfect. To give into frustration is to doubt My character and nature, which will weary and frustrate you all the more. Use discernment, for the enemy’s attempt to frustrate is always accompanied by fear and an overwhelming sense of failure. In Me, you are an overcomer, and fear has no place in you! Don’t give the enemy a foothold in your life by succumbing to his tactics. You belong to Me, and I will turn what the enemy meant for harm back upon his head, frustrating his plans, and bring you out to a delightful place. Let My peace guard your heart. Your prayers have been heard, your answer has been sent, now rest in My love for you. Phil. 4:5c-7, “The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” NASB
I am bringing into alignment all that concerns you. Trust that I am answering your prayers in ways you cannot imagine, to bring about results that you have not dreamed. Follow My lead; I have never misguided you. As you follow, do so in peace with joy. Though the circumstances you see in the natural don’t make sense, know that I am the Lord who speaks order into the chaos the enemy would attempt to lure you into. As you walk forward into the steps I have ordered for you, you will flourish, for I have already provided you with all that you need to succeed in this time of transition. Rom. 8:28, “We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called in accordance with His purpose.” CJB
Would you prophesy? Yes, I have called My people to declare forth My Word into the world and into their circumstances. If you would prophesy, then know My Word and come into agreement with it. Prophecy, My Child, is linked to confession. When you confess anything other than My Word, your vision is blocked, and you’re unable to see from My perspective. Without proper vision, there is no revelation and understanding, and therefore, no life. My Word is greater than My reputation. As I stand by My reputation, so I will honor My Word. My Word spoke and brought forth all of creation! Begin to confess and testify, My Child, for the spirit of prophecy begins with the testimony of Christ. Speak what I am speaking, and you will begin to see the miraculous. My Word is life. John 6:63, “It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh is no help. The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and life.” CJB, Ps. 135:15-18, Ps. 138:2, Prov. 29:18, Rev. 19:10
My child, just as you seek to see life from My perspective, seek to see yourself from My perspective. I am grieved that you limit yourself in such a way. You are so much more, dear one. What you see as lacking in yourself, I declare whole, and what you see as weakness, I declare to be strong. You are condemning yourself when I have accepted you. Quit trying to perfect yourself – I alone can perfect that which concerns you. Don’t second guess the nature and wisdom of My love and My call for and upon you. It’s been there all along. Learn to enjoy who I’ve made you to be. I certainly do! Eph. 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” NKJV
