Beware of compromise.

Dear Saints,

Today I wish to share a warning that I have been feeling in the Spirit which was also confirmed by a prophetic word of warning to the Body of Christ (read below) through my pastor and dear friend.

As I have been sharing lately, we are in a transition period and entering into a new season where God is fulfilling promises, opening doors and making a way in our wilderness.  For many of us, including myself, it seems like forever that we have been going through a wilderness, trusting and waiting on God for change in our circumstances.  And, now is the time of God to show His faithfulness for those who did not give up on Him.  “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9  “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19  

However, with the coming blessings and refreshing presence of God, also comes a danger in thinking that we have “arrived” or that all is well with our walk with the Lord and we can then relax.  This type of thinking breeds compromise.

Now is not the time to relax, yet, just the opposite.  The days are increasingly growing darker and darker, thus, we need to be even more vigilant and alert, taking up our cross daily to follow the Lord without straying from the narrow path of righteousness.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1 Peter 5:8  

“Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14 

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.  “Luke 9:23”

“I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1

“He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”  Proverbs 25:28

 

Having said this, please read the prophetic warning given to the Body of Christ from my dear friend and pastor.

Beginning of Word:

“My children, I come to you this day in the love of a Father to warn of what is coming & even now is in the Earth. What I speak of is even beginning to affect My people to varying degrees. I love you all with an everlasting love & desire you to know My love in your hearts greatly in the time ahead. For this I say, that the eyes of your understanding may be enlightened & that you may begin to grasp My truth in a greater way. I tell you now that a wave of deception has been released to draw My people away from Me, that their steadfastness in Me would begin to falter & fade away. Understand that this deception is elusive, not blatant, for the latter would be easy for you to spot & to steer clear from.

The deception that is come is on a lesser level…coming in such a way that many of My people will not even know that it is come & these will fall under its spell thinking that all is right with their lives. I speak of righteousness & integrity in your lives…these are things that I hold dear. I desire that you hold to these with unwavering hearts. Never forget that a little leaven leavens the whole lump…if you allow this wave to affect you, you will also succumb to the waves that follow…those waves will affect My people in ways that I never want My people to know…the closeness that you now know in your hearts & lives will diminish…it can ultimately take you away from Me & you will not even be aware of it.

This present wave deceives because it comes in a form that on the surface appears “right”, but under the surface, its real motivation seduces the heart & mind thru SELF. The underlying reality is, it will convince My people to do what it wants by using the desires of the flesh to get its way. How it works is through justifying the behavior of self, so that self gets what it wants & the person believes that nothing is wrong & all is right in their world. This is very dangerous, My children & if not dealt with now, more intrusive waves will come & cause devastation to the walk & life of those who succumb to it. Please…hear the heart of your Heavenly Father & do what is right in My sight while you still can.

I am grieved that some of My people have already begun to move away from Me, through a lack of true righteousness & integrity. Many have even begun to fall into various sin, but have no real repentance in their hearts. They may feel a measure of guilt or remorse for a short time, but then they will come back into My house & seek My presence…this is where this deception does its greatest harm. For many interpret the “feeling” of My presence as a vindication of their life actions & a seduction “winks” at them & tells them that everything is fine & no real repentance takes place. This of course leads to more sin & this web of deception increases, as their unrepentant actions will perpetuate it.

Hear Me, My people…understand that I love you & surely My blood covers all sin…but don’t deceive yourselves to think that you can continue in sin & that My grace will abound. Do not receive My grace in vain, My children, thinking that My grace gives you the power to live in sin! Never forget that when you are tempted, you are drawn away of your own lust & enticed…then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin & then sin when it is finished, brings forth death. I do not want death in My people…you are called to be people of LIFE…My life. You cannot serve two masters…to think so is hypocrisy…surely you know that hypocrisy is something that I despise…run from it while you still can!

This deception is entering into My people because they have allowed compromise & complacency to come into their lives…a little leaven here…a little leaven there. Once this is allowed, it becomes easier & easier to let it in…soon patterns develop in the heart & mind…strongholds begin to form. And because they do not know that complacency & compromise has infected them, they are free to move forward in their actions, thinking there is no consequence for the things that they do. They do not know they are falling away from Me, even though they go to church, feel My presence & do all of the things that religious people do. They do not realize they must seek true repent before it is too late!

My people are to shine as lights in a dark place. True light dispels darkness…corrupt light brings more darkness. I desire you to be like Me…I desire you to walk like Me…run unto the True light…shake yourself free from the deception that is come! Behold, I give you a season of time to repent & do what is right in My sight…come unto Me & let My light shine on your hearts. I will show you what needs to change…for there are things that many are convinced is right in Me, which are really just appeasing self & justifying you are in My will because you can feel My presence. This is not of Me or My will…My will is, that when you come into My presence you are to be CHANGED & become more like ME.

My will is for you to come into My presence & allow Me to go deep within, past the various layers of pride & selfish things in your lives…for there to be a true surrender of SELF…for that is the thing which keeps you from being like Me. The time has come, My children…time to grow up…time to put away childish things…it is time to become grown-up in Me & walk like I walk…it is time for Me to use you in this lost & dying world, but I cannot use you as long as you are no different than the world…you must become like Me. When I was on Earth, I only said what I heard My Father say…I only did what I saw My Father do. BE like Me, My people…truly surrender your hearts & lives to Me, says the Lord”.

End of Prophetic Word.

I pray that this word speaks to each of your hearts as it did mine.  Our Heavenly Father deeply loves each of us and is so loving to warn and chastise when He sees us straying from the narrow path and even warns those of us (with ears to hear) when dangers are ahead, just as He has warned us in this prophetic warning.

Also, like me, my Pastor relies on donations and gifts from others for his support.  He has expressed to me that he is in financial need this month, therefore, if this word of warning has been beneficial to you, please consider a donation for him.  He would greatly appreciate it.  You can read his other prophetic words and donate from his blog at this address: https://revivalfirechurch.wordpress.com/

I also thank all of you who were so loving and helpful with me getting into a rent house.  It has been such a blessing.  I am thankful for all that the Lord has provided for me during my time living in the RV camper, but I am so thankful that He has made a way for me and my brother to finally move into a house.  We both thank all of you who helped with our deposit and first month rent.  I know that this move was of God and part of His blessings and transition on our lives.

Also, I am believing Him to move on my business so that it will prosper.  It has been quite a long time (at least five years) that I have been waiting on Him to bless my business so I can generate income instead of relying on donations for my support.  It has been a long humbling trial.  I’m used to always financially supporting myself, so, it was very difficult to rely on God to move on the hearts of others to give toward my needs each month.  It has been a very humbling experience.  But now, I believe that it is the season for me (and many others) to come out of the wilderness and into His blessings.

On this note, I’m still relying on donations from others for my support until God moves on my business, which, I can see it in the works.  I believe that something will break very soon.  I cannot speak about everything that is going on right now, but in time, I hope to be able to share the huge blessing from the Lord that I feel is coming.  In the mean time, if anyone is able to give toward my monthly needs, no matter the amount, it would be greatly appreciated.

Much love and blessings to you all.

Your brother in Christ,

Kevin B.

For those leaving a comment: Please understand that the Lord has charged me to give out His warnings to awaken His people to prepare for the days ahead. In this, He has told me to not waste precious time trying to convince any that will not hear, for they have already made their choice. So with that, if your comment is a personal attack, insult, rude, or to argue; then may the Lord bless you and keep you. I will not answer back to any rude comments, nor post them. Blessings to you, Kevin Barrett
