Don’t Give In To The Flood!

Dear Saints,

By the many responses I received after my last posting, I know that many of you are anticipating part two.  Please know that the Lord is still speaking to my heart on what all to share, so hopefully, I’ll have it out soon.

However, the Lord has given my dear friend and pastor a word for the Body that many need to hear at this time.  It’s a very encouraging and enlightening word and I believe that many will be blessed by it.  I will also post my pastor’s personal message at the end of the word as it shares wisdom for us all.

Be blessed,

 

BEGINNING OF PROPHETIC WORD

Hear Me, My people…I want you to walk with Me. I see your hearts…I know ALL that you are going through…I need you to know that I am right there with you. Know that I love you with an everlasting love. Many are struggling with things within their thoughts…things that they have no control over. I need for you to walk circumspectly during this time, being wise in your thoughts, wise in the things that you do…redeeming the time because the days are evil. I come to you now to help you so you will be wise & understand what the will of your Lord is. I do not want you to be drunken by the flood of negative thoughts from the enemy, which like wine, can lead to an excess…I want you to be filled with My Spirit.

There is much turmoil going on in the world…I told you in My word that in the world you WILL have tribulation. Whatever you are going through, you MUST be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. As long as you allow your mindset to dwell on the things that are going on around you & in your lives, the enemy will have entrance to your thoughts. You are not to be ignorant of his devices…this is important for you to recognize that “ignorant” means more than not knowing…here it means to know, but choose to ignore. For, when the enemy comes to attack your minds, you must choose…either you will fight his attack unto My victory or you will ignore it, being like an ostrich with its head in the sand.

Many of you have matured & risen to new levels in the past seasons, but with this flood of attacks, the enemy is wanting to steal ground from you & drag you back to where you were. It is important that you not let this happen, My people, for I have promised that with any temptation or trial, I would make a way for you to escape…I HAVE made a way for you! So, where is My escape, you ask? My escape is for you to come unto Me…all you that are burdened & heavy laden & I will give you REST! Take My yoke upon you & learn of Me, for I am meek & lowly of heart. Do not let the enemy deceive you or confuse your thoughts. Remember who he is…for he is a thief & a liar…he only comes to steal, kill & destroy.

My people, I am come that you might have LIFE & have it more abundantly. So, what has happened? By allowing your thoughts to dwell on what the enemy has said to you, those things have become the “abundance of your heart”. But, as you will begin to dwell on the things that I desire, you will see the enemy lose his hold over you. I want you to dwell on things that are true…I want you to dwell on things that are honest…I want you to dwell on things that are just…things that are pure…things that are lovely & are of good report. Think on things that have virtue & give praise unto Me. For as you will do this, you will see a great difference in your lives, for My glorious peace shall be within you.

What you are going through right now is just temporary…it will pass. This is just another trial of your faith. You have all been there before…this is no different. This trial may have come in a different way…it may have come from a different angle, but it is still just a trial of your faith, so be encouraged. Just as you have made it to the other side before, you will do it again, as you will trust Me & do what I say. The enemy knows this & that is why he is working so hard against you…for he knows that if he can keep your thoughts centered on that which is temporary, he can keep you from dwelling on the things that are eternal. He knows what is about to happen in this world…he wants My people to be unaware.

For it is time that My people will be all that I have called them to be…but if He can keep them derailed or shipwrecked, they will not know what to do. This is why he has worked on so many of My people to never grow…sadly, they will go to “church” & at times may even experience a “feeling” of My warmth & love there. The leaders will tell them that “the presence of God is here”. Well, this may be true, but unfortunately, rarely does anyone EVER go deeper than that warm feeling, because when My people feel that warmth, they think that THAT is My presence. But the reality of this is, this is only the very edge of what I am really wanting for them, for My presence is SO much more than this, My people!

For the reality of My presence can be likened to people sitting around a campfire & feeling the warmth of the fire. Yes, it is a “nice feeling”…it gives warmth & makes you feel all is well. Then My people will go home & that warmth they have experienced will soon fade away. The thing is, I don’t want My people to only experience that slight “warmth” & to think that this is all there is, because it is NOT! Don’t settle for just My warmth…I want My people to jump into the middle of that “fire” so they will be CONSUMED. That is where the “difference” is…this is the place I want My people to dwell…for once you will truly enter into My fire, you will never be the same again…nothing will affect you the same again.

This is why the enemy is working SO hard to keep you away from Me. Many think that they are close unto Me, but few will truly experience the fullness of My presence as I have shared here with you. Refuse to be satisfied with the little warmth you have known & begin to aggressively press into the fire that is Me. For as you will do this, everything around you will change & you will see things completely different. Nothing will be able to affect you the same again, for you will be consumed by all that is Me. Turn away from the thoughts that the enemy has you dwelling on & instead run hard after Me…choose to jump into My fire & let Me consume you with My love…you will not be disappointed says the Lord”.

END OF PROPHETIC WORD

 

We are truly living in exciting times…there is so much ahead that the Lord has for us to do. We cannot lose time by allowing the attack of the enemy to keep us from what God desires for us to do. We must push forward…we must submit unto God, resist the devil & he will flee! In order for us to do this, we need to speak to ourselves in psalms, hymns & spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord…giving thanks always for all things unto our God & Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to “fight the good fight of faith”!!!

I know that this can seem difficult for us & at times it may even seem impossible…but He says that we do have His strength within us…we just need to tap into it & walk out His steps that are before us. He will never leave us nor forsake us…He will never fail us. We know in our own lives, there have been times that we felt like the Lord had left us, forsaken us & even failed us. Why? Because of the circumstances we were going through. But, over time we learned that He was always faithful…it was with us, and it was us that had left Him…it was us that had forsaken Him…it was us that had failed Him. You see, He taught us that we base His faithfulness to help us…we base His love…we base His response to our needs, according to the natural world, not realizing that He told us just the opposite.

2 Cor. 4:18 tells us: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal”. So, He taught us to not base things on our present situation. For in those times that we felt He had left, forsaken & failed us, it was so because our eyes were looking at the natural realm, instead of that which is eternal. Once we can get that ingrained into our mind & spirit, that alone will make life so much easier. Yes, there will still be times that the enemy will “try” to inject a negative thought into our minds, but knowing the truth, will set us free.

So, just shake the negative thoughts off & continue in trusting the Lord. It is so important that we not fixate on what we are going through…because as those two words literally say…we are “going through” whatever trial it is. Remember Psm. 23:4: “Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod & Your staff comfort me”. Whatever trial may come into our lives, we will not stay IN the trial…we will always walk THROUGH it…to the other side. And as we do, we can look back & see that the Lord WAS with us all the time…He didn’t leave us…He didn’t forsake us…He didn’t fail us. For it is always Him that helped us through…& usually, He is the one that has literally “carried” us to the other side!!!

But, once we will recognize what is going on in us & around us…seeing the things that the enemy is using to keep us from walking forward in the Lord, this knowledge of truth will help us…yes, it will set us free. Once we recognize what is really going on (we call this discernment), then we can say…”wait a minute…I see what is happening…I’m not going to give in to this”! Then we will start to move forward, even if it is just a little at a time…step by step, we will make a change in the way things have been & very soon, it will become easier & easier…we will get stronger & stronger. Never forget that the enemy is always seeking who he may devour. The Lord taught me that this word “may” is very important. For the word “may” means the potential for failure exists, because we are unguarded in some area.

We must walk forward, recognizing that as God said, we are not ignorant of the devil’s devices. We must steer clear of them & instead run straight unto the Lord, where His revival fires await us…He is waiting for us to jump in & be consumed…it truly will forever change our lives!

  1. Blessings kevin , i was blessed by this prophetic word from the Lord given to your pastor. I want to ask , how does one “jump into the fire” of his presence?. I truly desire t reach that level.

    • Hello Odain,

      It’s good that you desire this because that is the first step. I too seek after this, but sometimes the Lord withholds it from us for a season to see how hungry we are for it as we seek after it. However, the times that we do feel His presence, don’t be satisfied with what you feel but keep pressing in for more of Him until you enter the fire. It may not happen the first time or so, but don’t give up…..

      Blessings,

      kevin B.

  2. Thank you for sharing this , saving it, rereading again

  3. Brother…thank you…it’s almost as if you know exactly what’s happened in my life. The Lord has told me not to speak on what’s happened, but instead to trust Him, and stay in His face/His word…I HAVE TO prove myself to the LORD; I have to show Him my willingness to do what’s right in His sight.

    In that which I am going through, I am fighting to keep my thoughts from replaying the event that has lead up to what’s happened.
    I’ve never experienced God telling me not to speak about an incident, so I reckon it to when God silenced Zechariah’s mouth, when he found out Elizabeth was pregnant…

    I am staying “in His face”, seeking answers, and reading material that will help strengthen my walk in Him, praying that His will comes to pass, as I’ve stated I don’t want anything or anybody God doesn’t want me to have or be with, no matter how painful.

    I am willing to please God, instead of pleasing my flesh.

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
