Will you receive My purging fire?

In my prayer time with the Lord today, He said these words: 

My son, hear Me this day.  I am about to do a new thing in the earth that will tingle the ears of those that hear and many will be astounded. My son, tell My people to mend their ways.   

Word from the Lord:

Oh, My people, do you not sense in the Spirit the change in the atmosphere?  My people, I am doing a new thing in the earth and the old ways of doing things will not work for you any longer.  Seek Me, My people and come up where I sit on My throne.  For those that shall lay all down for me in these days shall have their hearts thrilled.  Oh, My people, I do not want any of you to miss out on this.  But hear Me, and hear Me well.  For there are many that call themselves by My name that worship Me with their lips only, but their hearts are far from Me.  Do not be deceived, not everyone that call themselves by My name truly follow Me.  MY sheep hear My voice and follow Me wherever I lead.  And in these days, I am leading My sheep into My chambers. 

Oh, my little children.  Cry out to Me and come unto Me often.  Come away from the cares of this world and sit in the presence of your God.  I love you all, My dear children with an everlasting love.  Oh, but hear Me, My dear little ones.  As I have said in My word, there were only five of the ten virgins that had extra oil in their lamps.  The foolish ones said to the wise ones, “Give us of your oil”.  Oh My little ones, you cannot receive My oil from another.  You cannot know Me intimately by receiving from your teachers, pastors or prophets.  You MUST spend time alone with Me in the secret chambers of your heart.  My children, I have made it this way to weed out those that only seek Me for My gifts.  In My word, I healed ten lepers, but only one returned to thank Me.  My children, do not be like the other nine that went their way once they received their gift from Me. 

My children, these days will determine those who are truly Mine and those who are not.  The lawless one comes quickly upon the world’s scene and he will deceive many.  Those that think they are mine, but are not will quickly follow his deceitful and smooth words as their answer to their current crisis.  For I am shaking everything that can be shaken and many will be dismayed and think that I have left them to fend for themselves because I did not save their fleshly kingdoms. 

But hear Me, My people.  I shall have a remnant that will rise from the ashes and she will be My beautiful bride adorned in My righteousness.  She will stand and she shall redeem all that are Mine that will seek after Me with a pure heart.  She will be My will and My hands and feet in the earth realm.  And she shall not be overcome by the world but shall overcome. 

Oh, My people, how I desire for you all to be part of My beautiful bride in the earth.  But woe unto the foolish virgins, for they shall not be ready when I come to My bride.  And once the door is shut, there will be no second chances.  There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when many of My people see what they have lost out on because they did not spend time with their Master. 

So hear Me, My people.  I am now looking across the earth to see who has a heart for their Master and Lover of their soul.  And I shall begin to take these ones through the purifying fires of My Spirit to wash and purify My bride.  Do you heed the call of your Master to lay all down at My feet and allow Me to purge and purify you?  If you do, get ready, My people.  For I am about to rain down fire from heaven that will purge and purify those that have a pure heart after Me. 

I love you, My people, and desire the day that we shall be together as one.  So come up higher and sit with Me, My people.  And allow Me to do the work in you that I so much desire to do.  You cannot find this work in your churches.  Your pastors cannot purge you, My people.  Only the fire of My Spirit can do this work.  So separate yourselves unto Me and cry out to me for My fire.  See if I will not answer from heaven and rain down upon your souls and spirits.  I love you My people and this is My gift for My bride.  Do you receive what I have for you this day, My people? 

1 Samuel 3:11 Then the LORD said to Samuel, “Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which the two ears of everyone who hears it will tingle. 

Isaiah 29:13 Then the Lord said, “Because this people draw near with their words And honor Me with their lip service, But they remove their hearts far from Me, And their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote, 

Revelations 4:1 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” 

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 

Matthew 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 

Luke 17:15-18 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”   

Matthew 25:10-13 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.   Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. 

Luke 12:49 “I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled!  

Malachi 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Are we following Jesus or spiritual principles?

Greetings dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

After posting the last prophetic warning I received from the Lord (Time to prepare is almost over), concerned saints have written in to me and asked me to explain exactly what it means to prepare our hearts before Him.  And, what is our part in it and what is His part in the preparing of our hearts.

In my response to these dear saints, the Lord laid something on my heart to share with them along with answering their question.  After responding back to them, I cannot shake off what is on my heart that the Lord wanted me to share.  Therefore, I believe that there are many other believers out there that need to hear what the Lord laid on my heart, as it pertains to our making it through the days of darkness that are coming.

First, I would like to address those that may have the same question of how to prepare our hearts.  In the prophetic warning, the Lord emphasized the repentance of lukewarmness.  We MUST get all sin and weights out of our lives.  Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,.  Darkness is going to cover the earth and people like never before and even the smallest compromise in our lives will open the door for us to be overtaken by this darkness.  Is. 60:2 “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples;

The second thing He warned us about is fellowship with the world.  Those that are friends with this world will be found on the side of darkness.  James 4:4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.  Of course we are not to go out from this world, but we are not to love this world or have heart fellowship with the unrighteous.  2 Cor. 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? John 17:15 I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil

And also, He said for us to separate ourselves unto Him.  Ever since Jesus died on the cross, saints have known Him as their savior.  Few have known Him as Lord and Master.  And fewer still ever get to know Him as their bridegroom.   We must all move on from just knowing Him as savior and learn to yield to Him as our LORD.  Those not wholly given over to Him will not make it in the days ahead.

Upon heeding the Lord to obey these warnings, we must keep ourselves away from all sin and stay alert in spirit.  1 Peter 5:8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  So our part in preparing our hearts is to do these things and stay in obedience, fellowship and communion with Him in the secret chambers (our prayer closet) and keep our eyes (heart) fixed on Jesus (the word).  Then, He will protect us, provide for us, and keep us in the light and we will not be caught unaware.  1 Thes. 5:6 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep (be unaware or not alert), as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 

Now if we do these things in obedience to Him, then He will do the work in our hearts to keep His light shining in us so that we will be spiritually awake and alert at all times.  Also, we will have confidence toward Him that He is faithful to keep His promises.  1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 

Now I would like to share what the Lord laid on my heart when answering the concerned saints that wrote in to me.  This may offend some believers.  However, it is not my intention to do so.  Nor do I wish to start any debate about doctrine.  This is simply what the Lord laid on my heart to share because those that will have ears to hear will be greatly equipped by heeding to this.

As we all should know, we are in the last days.  And the bible tells us that in the last days there will be false doctrines in the church to cause believers to fall from the true faith.  1 Tim. 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Much of the popular teachings of today are no longer a gospel of taking up our cross and living a holy life.  We now have gospels of prosperity and success.  With these new doctrines, many Christians have fallen away from the true faith and don’t even know it.  I don’t wish to get into all of these false doctrines.  I just wish to share specifically what the Lord laid on my heart.

Years ago in my early Christian years I was so hungry for God that I read as many teachings as I could.  And I listened to many Christian television programs.  In listening to the programs and reading the current Christian books, I was introduced to what is commonly known as the “faith movement”.  Even though I was new in the Lord, I at least had enough discernment to know that some of what I was hearing was not true.  I knew that Jesus did not die on the cross so that we could all have big houses and drive expensive cars.  Of course I believed that He did bless some people with abundant finances.  But I did not think that it was so His children could consume it all upon their fleshly desires.  Also, I believed the scripture that says we are to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness, not the things of this world.  Matt. 6:33  But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.  And I knew that if we are seeking after His righteousness, then we will not have lust for the things of this world.

However, even though I didn’t take teachings of the faith movement for selfish gain, I did believe some of it’s teachings like “standing in faith” for God to do something I was asking for.  Then during one season of my life, the Lord lovingly corrected me and had me to repent and renounce the false doctrine that I had been following.  He showed me that for us to believe that if we stand in faith for anything and believe that He is obligated to honor our faith, even if it is one of His promises, then that is pride and not true faith.  This belief makes Him subject to us.  It cannot be true because He is OUR Lord and Master and is in no way subject to us.  Another thing He showed me about this false doctrine is that it has believers following so-called spiritual principles instead of a living person and Master.  Also, this is not true faith because faith works by love and true love is never self seeking.  Gal. 5:6  For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.  1 Cor. 13:4-7  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 

Now we are to trust in His promises.  However, we are not to use His promises in some formula or principle to get our way.  The way we trust in His promises is that we trust and believe in Him, and that He is who He says He is.  We do not put our trust in so-called spiritual principles in place of a living being and Lord of our lives.

One good example to dismantle these false beliefs about our faith is the story of Peter walking on the water.  When Peter saw Jesus walking on the water he did not step out of the boat in faith.  He said “Lord, if that is you, bid me to come to you on the water”.  Jesus said “Come”(Matt. 14:28-19).  It was only AFTER Peter had Jesus’ will and spoken word to that situation; could he then walk on the water.  Without that, he could not have walked on the water no matter how much faith he had.

Now I know that some may argue that we already have Jesus’ will and spoken word (the bible) to stand on.  However, I disagree.  The scriptures by themselves are the letter that kills.  2 Cor. 3:6  He who made us worthy to be Ministers of The New Covenant, not in The Scripture, but in The Spirit, for The Scripture kills, but The Spirit gives life.  We do not follow scriptures.  We follow the living word which is Jesus Christ.  Only when He gives us a scripture for our circumstances is it then His SPOKEN will and word to us for our situation.  There are many believers that lay claim to His promises of prosperity, provision, healing or whatever, when He is trying to tell them to repent of something.  In that circumstance, His only spoken word to them is REPENT and no matter how much they may claim or stand on His other promises, He will not honor them.

Now the main burden on my heart about these false teachings is that they have caused many believers to become what I call self-confident fools.  They follow principles instead of a living Lord and believe that their faith will move God’s hand on their behalf.  They have confidence in their faith and believe that their faith will get them through the coming days of darkness.  In these days all that can be shaken will be and that includes doctrines and the foundation of our faith.  Unfortunately, these self-confident fools that have confidence in their faith will be like the foolish man that built his house on the sand in Jesus’ parable.  It would behoove all who are still confident in their faith to repent and learn to rest in His mercy.

When thinking of these poor deceived people, I am reminded of Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and tax collector. Luke 18:9-14  He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”   In this parable, it speaks of those that are confident that they are right with God when they truly are not.  It was the tax collector that cried out for God’s mercy that was justified.  Unfortunately, these self-confident fools are convinced that they are right with God though they are not.

We must all learn to humble ourselves and cry out to Him for His mercy.  Technically speaking, it will NOT be our faith that gets us through the days ahead.  It will be our Lord Jesus Christ as we put our trust and faith in Him as a person, not any so-called spiritual principles. I pray that all reading this will pray about it and see if they have confidence in their faith instead of relying on God’s mercy.

Now to any that may be offended at this.  The fact that you are offended should tell you something about your faith because the cross is an offense to our flesh.  So if this offends you, then possibly you have faith in your faith and not true faith in Jesus as Lord of your life.  Before shunning all of this as foolishness, I would ask you to seek the Lord in this and see if what I am saying is true.

I send this letter out in love to all that would have ears to hear as it is my desire for all of us to help each other as one body get through the days of darkness that are just ahead.  I truly believe that ONLY our Lord Jesus Christ will be the ark of safety.  Any trust in ourselves (faith in our faith) or principles will cause us to stumble and may even be our demise.  I pray that all reading this will see that I say all of this out of love and concern for my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and not as an argument against other’s doctrines or beliefs.

Blessings to you all,

A servant of Jesus Christ,

Kevin Barrett

Time to prepare is almost over.

In my time with the Lord, He said these words to me:  Son, tell My people that time to prepare is almost over.  My people still go about with business as usual and do not discern what is at their doorstep. 

Word of the Lord: 

Oh My people, hear My heart crying out to you all to repent.  Repent of your complacency and lukewarmness and cry out to Me for My mercy.  I am meek and lowly of heart and will by no means cast out any that seek Me with a pure heart.  But the door for seeking Me for your preparation is almost shut and then there will be sudden destruction.  And those not prepared by repentance and seeking Me will be caught unaware and many shall even be destroyed.  Oh My little lambs, why do you not heed My warnings?  Soon and very soon many of you will be crying out to me for My help.  But it will be too late for you because you did not heed My warnings to repent and prepare your hearts before Me.  Oh, My little ones, what must I do to shake you awake?  Soon and VERY soon your life as you know it will be no more.  What shall you do then?  Where shall you go?  Hear Me, My children, I have sent My prophets to warn and to warn and yet many of you still do not heed My warnings.  Can you not discern the time that you live in, My dear children? 

Oh woe unto those who are at ease in Zion, for they do not heed My warnings and only fatten themselves with lies of comfort.  They heap up for themselves prophets and teachers that tell them that all is well and speak lies about My glory that shall fall in these last days.  Yes, I shall pour forth My glory upon the people and nations and pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.  But this will NOT be a desirable thing for many.  For My glory shall consume all flesh.  And those in rebellion to Me shall weep and cry out in anguish.  Oh hear Me, My children, you have been lied to.  Does not My word say that the Day of the Lord shall be a day of darkness and not light?  Then why?  Why do you listen to the teachers and prophets that speak lies to you?  Prepare your hearts before Me NOW, My children, before it is too late. 

Many of you think that all shall be well with you because you call yourselves by My name.  But does not My word say “Who can stand in the day of My coming?”  Oh, My little ones, who has bewitched you into believing such lies?  READ MY WORD.  No longer listen to those that only speak words of comfort.  They are lies I tell you, LIES.  For My day is coming like a refiners fire and a fuller’s soap and I shall burn up all that is not of Me.  And I say to you all, which of you can truly stand in this day of My coming? 

Oh, My children, come to Me now while there is still time.  I shall heal and I shall mend all those that seek Me with a contrite heart.  And I shall protect and provide for you in the coming days of disasters, destructions and chaos. 

But woe unto those that have put their trust in lies.  You tell yourselves that all is well with your relationship with Me.  I say to many of you that I shall spit you out of My mouth and you shall mourn and weep because you did not heed My warnings to prepare. 

Oh, My children, I love you all with an everlasting love and do not desire that any of you should perish.  But hear Me and hear Me well.  If you do not repent of your lukewarmness and fellowship with this world and separate yourselves unto Me, then I shall not protect you in the days ahead and great shall be your destruction.  Head My warnings, My little ones.  Time is short, sayeth the Lord. 

 

Luke 12:56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? 

1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day (the Lord’s Day) would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. 

Proverbs 1:24-28 Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded, because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you, when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me. 

Psalm 11:6-7 Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup. For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face. 

Amos 5:18-24  Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD,  For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you?  It will be darkness and not light; As when a man flees from a lion  And a bear meets him, Or goes home, leans his hand against the wall And a snake bites him. Will not the day of the LORD be darkness instead of light, Even gloom with no brightness in it? “I hate, I reject your festivals,  Nor do I delight in your solemn assemblies. “Even though you offer up to Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,  I will not accept them;  And I will not even look at the peace offerings of your fatlings. “Take away from Me the noise of your songs; I will not even listen to the sound of your harps. “But let justice roll down like waters And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.  

Malachi 3:2 But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. 

Revelations 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. 

Matthew 7:24-26 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

 

The sinners in Zion shall be afraid, but light shall come to My remnant.

In my prayer time this morning, the Lord said this to me:  Son, tell My people that time is running out.  Time is running out for those that will choose to run to Me to prepare their hearts for all that is coming (judgments, shakings, disasters, chaos, etc.). 

Word from the Lord: 

My people, hear Me this day.  Woe!  Woe unto those who are at ease in Zion.  For you do not know nor take to heart what is at your doorstep.  Oh, My people, how I wish that all of you were ready to go into My chambers with Me.  But many of you are still entangled with this world and its many allurements, entertainments and pleasures.  Oh, My people, hear Me.  Soon and VERY soon your comfortable lives will be no more.  Many of you will be shocked and dismayed at what all shall come.  But this should not be so.  For I have sent My prophets for many years now to warn and shake you awake to what is coming.  But many of you have shunned My prophets saying that these things shall not come.  But I tell you that they surely shall.  And those at ease in My house that have fattened themselves with the pleasures of this world shall cry out when it is all gone.  For no longer will I let My people sit idly by while the lost are crying out to Me for My help.  

Hear Me, My people, I am raising up to judge My house.  And those found wanting shall cry out in anguish for the things that shall suddenly come upon them.  My people, I am raising up My TRUE church that does not desire to please themselves, but seeks My desires.  And they shall go out into a lost and crumbling world and bring in the harvest of lost souls.  My people that seek after Me shall be blessed and do great exploits in the land. 

But woe unto the sinners in Zion.  For they have set up for themselves teachers and false prophets that speak lies of comfort to them in their sin.  My people, Hear Me.  I am holy and I shall settle for nothing less.  My people SHALL and WILL be holy as I am holy.  Weary not at yourselves if you fall short of this.  If you will lay all down to seek Me in these days, then I shall do a work and a wonder in you that many have desired throughout the ages.  For I shall rain down from heaven My fiery rain that shall consume all that is not of Me.  And I shall set My people ablaze and consume their fleshly ways. 

But woe unto those that heed not My call to repent and seek Me.  You shall seek help and not find it.  You shall seek solutions to your calamities and not find any.  For only I shall stand in the days ahead and those not resting in Me shall be utterly consumed.  My people, hear Me.  Why do many of you still wait?  You tell yourselves that IF all this happens, then you shall prepare your hearts.  But for now, you tell yourselves; “I will enjoy myself and my pleasures.”  Oh, My children, hear Me when I tell you that you shall be caught unaware and then it will be too late for you to prepare.  For you will cry out to Me then to save and protect but I will not answer.  For My warnings have gone out to you to prepare yourselves now.  But many of you have refused to listen.  Do you think that Noah could have lived if he would have waited to start building the ark AFTER the rain started to fall?  Then why do you think you can wait?  Oh why do you think that all this shall not be?  For I have declared for years through My prophets that I shall judge the nations.  But many of you have stopped your ears from hearing My warnings and instead chose to listen to lies of comfort that tell you that I no longer judge.  Oh, My people, woe unto those that have believed these lies and have not prepared their hearts before Me.  For I have called and called for you to repent and turn from your wicked ways and your sinful pleasures.  But some of you say to yourselves; “Oh, I have time.”  But I tell you this day that you do not.  For those of you that have chosen to turn not at My reproof, I will laugh when your calamity strikes.  For you have scorned My prophets and labeled them doomsday sayers.  Well now I tell you that you have prophesied well in saying this.  For it SHALL be your doom.  Though it did not have to be this way.  

Oh, My people, hear My heart crying out to you all to repent and repent now.  Get silent before Me and allow Me to show you what is in your heart.  For truly the heart is desperately wicked and deceives itself.  But I see all things as all things are laid bare before Me.  Oh, My children, do not take these words as too harsh.  For I have sent My prophets to warn and warn.  But many of you have not heeded My calls to repent.  So you have brought this on yourselves.  

But to those I call My own, My remnant in the earth.  Those that seek the heart of the Father.  Those that have heard the warnings and have repented; for you, My lovely ones, I say prepare to enter into the deepest desires of your heart.  For I am coming with healing in My wings and I will heal and I will restore and I will set you on high.  Your days of obscurity and reproach are over.  For I will overshadow you with My love and My glory like the world has never seen before, nor will after.  For I say to you, My beloved, arise and shine, for your light has come.  I shall come to you suddenly and we shall be joined together as one.  And you shall be My beautiful bride that shall shine forth like the noon day.  And nations shall come to your light.  And you shall be My reapers to reap the greatest harvest of souls this world has ever seen.  So arise, My true bride, for your light has truly come. 

Luke 14:49 “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled!

 Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. 

Amos 6:1-7 “Woe to those who are at ease in Zion, and to those who feel secure on the mountain of Samaria, the notable men of the first of the nations, to whom the house of Israel comes!  Pass over to Calneh, and see, and from there go to Hamath the great; then go down to Gath of the Philistines.  Are you better than these kingdoms?  Or is their territory greater than your territory,  O you who put far away the day of disaster and bring near the seat of violence? “Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory and stretch themselves out on their couches, and eat lambs from the flock and calves from the midst of the stall, who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp and like David invent for themselves instruments of music, who drink wine in bowls and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph!  Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away.” 

2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him. 

Jeremiah 19:18-19 I will pursue them with sword, famine, and pestilence, and will make them a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, a terror, a hissing, and a reproach among all the nations where I have driven them, because they did not pay attention to my words, declares the LORD, that I persistently sent to you by my servants the prophets, but you would not listen, declares the LORD.’ 

1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 

Hebrews 4:13 And there is no creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 

Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.  

Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? 

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 

1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 

Malachi 3:2 But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. 

Proverbs 1:24-30 Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded, because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you, when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me.  Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord, would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof, 

Isaiah 16:1-3 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.   For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.   And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. 

Malachi 4:2 But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. 

Joshua 5:9 Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.” So the name of that place is called Gilgal to this day. 

Isaiah 58:10 And if you draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in the darkness, and your darkness be as the noon day: 

John 4:35-38 “Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. “Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.  “For in this case the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’  “I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”

 

Will you truly trust Me when all fails you in the days ahead?

While worshipping the Lord this morning, He said these words to me:  Son, tell My people that My love for them is great and everlasting.

Word from the Lord:

My people, hear Me this day.  Soon and very soon there will be chaos and destruction everywhere.  My people, fear not when you see these things.  Those that have prepared their hearts before Me shall be at peace.  For those caught unaware, I say to you this day to run into My arms of love when this happens.  I love you, My people, and do not desire that any of you should perish.  But for those that react in fear, you will be open game to the enemy.  This ought not to be so, My people.

Many of you say that you trust in Me.  But I see all things, My children.  I see that many of you trust in Me provided that you’re secure and satisfied with things of this world.  I say to you, what shall you do when all falls out from under you?  Then where shall your trust be?   Will you still trust Me to provide when your job fails?  Will you still trust Me when your government can no longer lend?  I tell you, My people, that these things shall surely come.  For those that have not prepared their hearts before Me, it shall be a test.  Who shall you trust?  Will you go down to Egypt for help?  Or will you stand still and watch the salvation of the Lord your God?  I love you, My dear people.  But I tell you the truth this day; those that have not been tested in these things shall have a difficult time.  For those of you that have given yourselves over to Me and allowed Me to test your hearts, you shall be at peace.

Oh, My dear little ones, do not take this as harsh or partiality.  For I am no respecter of persons.  But this is all of your own choices in this life.  There are those that have sought after Me and My righteousness, and then there are those that only seek after My gifts and blessings.  The choice has always been yours, My little ones.  But now the time has come to see who is really Mine and who shall follow after the lawless one.

Hear Me, My people.  Many of you will be shocked and dismayed at what shall come, then cry out that I have forsaken you.  This is not true, for I shall NEVER forsake My children.  But because many of you have not allowed Me to take you through the fires of My testings, then you shall not be prepared when all this suddenly comes upon the earth.  And many of you shall turn away and say that it is too hard.  Oh, My little ones, how I do not desire this for you.  So I give you this warning now that you may be prepared when all that you rely on and trust in shall crumble from beneath your feet.  I love you, My little ones.  So heed My warning this day to prepare your hearts before Me.  Ask of Me to give you strength in the days ahead.  For nobody shall be able to stand if they are not resting in Me.

Hear My heart crying out to you, My little ones.  Prepare your hearts before Me now, before it is too late.  I love you all, My dear children, and do not desire that any of you should perish.  So heed My warning this day, for it is to your own advantage, sayeth the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 

Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help And rely on horses, And trust in chariots because they are many And in horsemen because they are very strong, But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD! 

John 6:60,66  When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?”  After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 

Exodus 14:13  And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. 

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” 

Hebrews 4:11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. 

Matthew 7:24-27  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. “And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. “Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. “The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

Trust Me with your whole heart or be deceived by the antichrist.

As I was in fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ, He said these words to me:  Son, tell My people that My love for them is great and everlasting.

Word from the Lord:

Oh, My people, hear My heart crying out to you.  Soon and very soon things that you have relied on and trusted in will be no more.  Where will you go when this happens?  Will you surrender to My will and trust Me to provide?  Or will you go down to Egypt (the world’s system and ways) to seek provision?  Oh, My people, do you not know that this is My day of recompense?  For the things in life as you know them will fade away the same as darkness disappears at the dawning of the sun.  My people, I ask you, ‘where will you go’?  Will you seek to provide for yourselves?  Or will you abandon yourselves to Me, your God and provider?

I love you, My dear children, and desire only the best for you.  I do not desire for you to suffer unnecessarily.  Yes, there is a suffering that is needed so that My glory may reside in you.  But there is also unnecessary suffering due to your lack of trust in Me.  Oh, My children, if you could see what is upon you then you would not be so complacent.  Repent, My children, for being so complacent and trusting in the systems of this world.  For soon the systems and governments of this world will no longer work for you.  And you each will have a choice.  You will either put your trust in Me for your provisions, or trust in man.  But be warned, My little ones.  For those that put their trust in man will be deceived by the lawless one called antichrist.  For he will raise himself up with wonders and powers and deceit will be upon his lips.  But those that fall for his lies will be many.  And though he may seem to have answers to the word’s crisis at the time, it will be short lived and then destruction and judgment will come upon all those that have put their trust in him.  Oh, My people, how I do not wish for you to be deceived.  But hear Me this day.  If you do not learn to abandon yourselves and put your heart’s whole trust in Me, then in your own self-wisdom, you SHALL be deceived.

Hear My warnings, little ones.  This all shall come upon the earth very soon.  Many have been deceived into believing the “pre-trib rapture” lie.  They shall be greatly disappointed as they did not prepare themselves for the tribulation and instead put their hope in lies.  Oh, My people, why?  Why do you still believe the lies of the devil?  Soon and very soon all will know his lies and how they all have been deceived.  But at that time of knowing, it will be too late for the ones deceived.  But know this, My people, I am raising up My beautiful bride to be shown to the nations and she shall not be deceived as she will only cleave to her lover and bridegroom.  Will you accept My invitation to be part of My bride?  I love you, My people, and do not desire that any of you should perish.  But those that do not abandon themselves to Me shall be swept up in the darkness that shall cover the earth.

My people, hear Me this day.  Time for playing both sides is over.  Choose this day; the world or Me.  You cannot have both and soon every child of Mine will be forced to make a choice.  But it is My desire that you choose Me willingly.  I love you, My dear children, and tell you of these things to come that you may be prepared and hidden in Me.  Seek Me this day, My children, and see if I will not hear you from heaven and reach down to guard you from the onslaught of the enemy that is sure to come.  Reach out to Me, My children.  Surely I will not turn any away that seek Me with a pure heart.

Now hear Me this day, My little ones.  I am coming quickly and My reward is with Me.  Where shall you be found when I come?  Will you be joined unto Me as My bride?  Or will you be lost as I sweep across the land to subdue My enemies?  I love you, My people.  Now choose this day whom you will serve.  Will it be the world, or Me.

 

 

Habakkuk 3:17-19 Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.  God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places. 

Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help And rely on horses, And trust in chariots because they are many And in horsemen because they are very strong, But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!

Revelations 13:1-17 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.  And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.  

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 

2 Timothy 3:13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived 

Revelations 12:13-17 And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time. The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood. But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth. Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.

And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.  And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh. 

Joshua 24:15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Will you let Me take you through the fires of purification?

Last night in my time with the Lord, He said these words to me:  Tell My people that My love for them is great and everlasting. 

Word from the Lord: 

Oh, My people, hear Me this day.  Why do you still not heed My warnings?  Time is short, My people.  And soon I will not weary with you any longer but I shall pour forth My judgments upon the lands and peoples.  And hear Me, My people.  My judgments shall begin with My house.  I am rising up this day to judge all that call themselves by My name.  I shall judge each one according to My word.  Woe unto those that have believed the lies of the false prophets and teachers.  For there will be a great falling away as I separate the sheep from the goats; those that are truly Mine from those that are imposters.  And I shall call My own out from among the heathen and the imposters and they shall be healed from their backsliding as I purge them through the fires of My purification.  Oh, My people, hear Me this day.  I am jealous for My bride.  For My bride shall make herself ready as I take her through the fires of purification to bring her forth without spot or blemish.  For I am a holy God and I shall have a holy people.  

Oh, My people, why?  Why do you not take My warnings to heart?  Many are going to and fro with business as usual and not seeking what I desire.  Each one seeks his own.  Oh, My people, the days are short and very soon there will be distress of nations like never before.  But I shall have a people that will be a light in a darkened and corrupt world.  My beautiful bride shall do great exploits in ushering in her bridegroom and King.  Oh, My people, how I desire that each one of you could be part of My beautiful bride.  But not all that call themselves by My name shall take part as My bride.  Only those that overcome shall be allowed to sit with Me on My throne to rule the nations with a rod of iron. 

Oh hear Me, My people.  Why do you listen to the hirelings and false teachers and prophets?  Did I not say in My word that not all that say to me ‘Lord’ ‘Lord’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, save those that do the will of the Father who is in heaven?  Then why do you still go about doing your own will and tell yourselves that you are My bride?  My people, you have been lied to by the enemy of your soul.  Seek Me in these things.  Surely I will reveal My truth to you.  I love you, My dear children, and it is My desire that each of you share My throne with Me.  But unfortunately only a remnant shall overcome.  For too many have listened to the lies told by the false shepherds and prophets. They speak of how you each are already cleansed and adorned in righteousness simply by your belief on My name.  These are all lies, My people.  For does not My word say that he who does righteousness is righteous?  Yes, My people, you are made righteous by your faith in Me, but it is fulfilled by your obedience to My voice.  It is not imputed to you by a one-time confession of My name.  Oh, My people, you have been lied to.  Read My word for yourselves.  Why listen to those that fatten themselves by fleecing My sheep?  I have not sent many of the shepherds that are out there.  They have sent themselves for their own glory and their own profit.  Oh, My people, did I not say in My word to judge them by their fruit?  Then where is the fruit, My people?  Oh, but those that have itching ears care not about the fruit.  They want to be told all is well and that they shall prosper if they simply believe on My name and My promises.  Lies, lies, lies, I tell you.  

Oh, My people, why do you not study My word to show yourselves approved?  Why do you go about from doctrine to doctrine seeking what will make you feel good?  Can you not see that there is no healing in the dead churches?  Not healing of the physical body, but healing of the soul and spirit.  This is because there is no life in them.  For where My Spirit is there is liberty.  Not liberty to gratify or tingle the flesh; but liberty from the flesh.  

Oh, My people, how I wish to take you all with Me now into My chambers.  But you are not ready and many of you never will be.  For you do not test the spirits of those you follow and so you have chosen to believe their lies.  I will and I shall have a bride that is spotless and without blemish.  Do you take My invitation this day to come away with Me and be cleansed of all filthiness of flesh?  Oh, My people, come away with Me and we shall ride together on the heights of the earth.  For I shall rise with healing in My wings and I shall heal all that have called out to Me with a pure heart.  I shall heal and I shall cleanse with My cleansing fire.  Oh that I wish you all would call out to Me for My cleansing fire.  For not many of you will, because your desire is for your flesh.  But for those that choose to call out to Me for this fire, I will answer thee and pour upon thee both My glory and cleansing fire.  And I shall purify you to be My bride if you do not shrink back.  For I am now choosing those that choose Me and we will walk together and be one as I take each of you through My fires of purification.  And My bride shall be purified and come forth refined as silver and purified as gold.  And I shall be her God and she will be My bride to be shown forth to all nations.  Now choose this day, My people.  Will you let Me take you through the fires, or will you cling to the lust of your own flesh?  The choice is yours, My people.  For I am no respecter of persons and I offer this opportunity to all.
