Hear the Word of The LORD:
“You have entered a new place and phase in My purposes and you are unsure of many things. There have been some that have been enlarged and elevated. You have been concerned because it seems like many who you know, are not willing to go; It seems they have been cut off from your life. You have even grieved over it.
Truly there are some who have pulled away themselves and some I have pulled away and I have removed. It doesn’t necessarily mean the others are bad, it just means that not all can go with you.
It is imperative that you must learn to understand this and to discern spirits in this new place and phase. It is also true that the enemy seeks to gain entrance in your lives using false motives.
Not everyone who says LORD, LORD is right with me. There are many tares, goats and wolves among My people. These can say all the right things even quote scriptures and seem like they are good, but I know the heart condition. You must learn to discern and totally trust me,” says The LORD.
In these last days you must be willing to stand for The LORD and against tyranny. We the people of God and those whom we associate with, must know those in whom we want to represent us. The chasm is growing and no more gray areas. We are to put no confidence in the flesh. Seek God and put no trust in man.
It is dangerous when people do nothing and are not heard. Had Germany stepped up to the plate and confronted Hitler, there may have never been a Nazi Germany. Had Germany heard and acted on all the signs of danger, there may have never been that dictators war on the Jews and world.
“The remnant calling is becoming more narrow. Don’t be unsure concerning numbers of people but rather have great joy that I have connected you with My agenda and purpose. Do not connect yourselves to others for the sake of numbers, but be connected with Me by My Spirit,” says The LORD.
How many of us would wait on God if our ministry were for one man? The motive of counting sheep or numbers can get us tripped up. The amount of people who are with you is not a indicator that they all are for you.
Jesus during his ministry for three years had the twelve disciples that knew him in an intimate way day by day. What happened to the ones who were fed the five thousand, where did they all go?
Even in the end, who remained faithful to the bitter end? Judas hung himself for his role and betrayal in capturing Jesus, for thirty pieces of silver. Peter denied and rejected Jesus when the cock crowed.
Look at all the disciples that went running away during his Crucifixion. Jesus poured himself out into his disciples for three years. They were closely gathered in a small group they watched the miracles and the Lords actions and lifestyle. (See Matthew 16).
Still today, we look at the numbers of people involved in so called Christian ministry and nothing has changed. Many are called, few are chosen. God gives every person the freedom of choice to choose yes and choose to say no. God seeks those who willingly want to love him, worship and adore him. These are those who love him and his presence.
There shall be a greater movement in America and other nations where groups of smaller groups will be visited by a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit. It takes discipline to be a disciple. And it takes much tribulation to walk out the God given office of Apostle and other offices. These things are not easy. It will cost you everything.
“You cannot know a person unless you choose to get to know them. It takes time to know those who labor among you. Yes a quick work I AM doing in the earth, and I AM cutting it short because of righteousness sake.
You cannot hide your heads in the sand any longer. For those who must take a stand for Me, must stay prepared; It will cost everything in your lives. Persecution of My people is already happening in other nations. Do you think I will simply pass by America? Those who have been given much, much is required and you reap what you sow.
To those who can see; I am showing you clearly My remnant. Do not connect yourselves to others out of pressure of mans agenda and popularity. Wait upon me as I bring you into precious balance of one heart, mind and spirit.
It takes time to really know those among you. You are noticing recently, that I AM making you very discerning. Not just anyone can go with you into My agenda and path for your life.
My beloved is seen as living epistles seen and read of all men. When you stand before others in My name, you have made yourselves readily known. To live in Christ and to die is gain. Anytime you take a stance for Me, you open yourselves up to religious and demonic persecution.
To My beloved, boundaries have been enlarged and elevated. With your elevation, KNOW that you are hearing me clearly. As you abide in me in relationship, you shall notice how well you hear from me. You are stepping up to a higher place. Yes, boundaries are larger and you can sense the openness of extensions; with this comes more of My authority.
I AM entrusting those with more authority and power, a greater influence for good. Don’t you discern it? There are those who are in this new place trusting me with fervent heated conviction.
Can you tell the gentle breeze blowing through your hair as you notice walls have been removed outwardly from east and west? However you need to know that there is more opposition and stay strong in Me” says The LORD.
“I AM redeeming the time as the days are evil. A quick work will I do in the earth with those who open up to Me fully.
I have given you the power of influence. Do you not realize as you have sought Me there have been those given a rock of offense? Those who fall upon My rock shall be broken, but woe unto those whom the rock falls on, for they shall be crushed to powder.
Put no confidence in the flesh of yourselves or any man. Commit yourselves to faithful men who will be able to teach others well. It takes time to know a person. This is not a shake and bake with the easy bake oven. I AM elevating you to a place of maturity.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Commit yourselves to faithful servants, and keep My secrets until the time. Not everyone can understand your ways.
Be aware of those who seek recognition, who walk in pride and double mindedness. Avoid those who are given to change and titles that wish to flatter you. A flattering mouth works ruin,” says The LORD.
“Elijah was a man like you are, but ran away from Jezebel in fear of his life after such a total victory in Israel. Elijah had to pull back and find his way as many of you are doing.
Elijah thought he was the only one left in Israel who loved ME, and I The LORD told him, that he had seven thousand that had not bowed to Baal.” (See 1 Kings 19).
So in this time, many are hidden and coming into a new phase of ministry. Elijah was told to leave the cave with orders from God. Elijah was told to anoint and release Elisha to be prophet when Elijah died.
Some of you have thought you were all alone as Elijah, yet God has many that are faithful that are hidden and these will not bow their knee to any other god.
“But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal,” Romans 11:4 KJV.
I saw myself and a few others standing on a red rug. All the sudden, the enemy took hold of the red rug and pulled it out from under us.
The enemies mission was to pull the red rug out from under us and cause a very hard fall. Instead of us falling on the red rug, we stood standing even though the red rug was pulled out from under us, we remained steadfast and standing.
I heard this Word: “For what satan meant for evil, God has chosen to turn it all around for good.”
“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thous has heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thous to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits,” 2 Timothy 2:1-6 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
