The LORD said, “I AM confronting all apathy and complacency that is keeping the people asleep by trusting their own little world that they control.
These don’t want change, waves, or anything uncomfortable; they like the status quo.
As these are being awakened, tell the people to repent of all witchcraft, slumber, and sorcery; these spirits must be identified and cast out!
The people are loving their slumber and sleep, don’t be moved by their rebukes and threats when confronted, irritated, and resistant.
It’s like, ‘a hammer that breaks rocks in pieces……’ “
“How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith The LORD. Is not my word like as a fire? saith The LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith The LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbor. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith The LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith The LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit these people at all, saith The LORD,” Jeremiah 23:26-32 KJV.
It is the time to put to death the deeds of the flesh, so your spirit and soul will rise in newness of life. The old nature wants to reign supreme and tries to take control of every moment it can.
In this hour, God wants us to look within and tune-up our belief system. The devil isn’t our greatest foe! In fact, our greatest foe is with our flesh!
Our flesh isn’t our friend and we must learn how to take authority and dominion over it. For instance, our tongue is such a weapon that can be used for good or bad, but we must learn to take control over it. (Read James 3.)
Our flesh is the worst enemy we have. We have been born a fleshly being and live in the body God has given to us.
However, our bodies have been changed by The Holy Spirit when we were saved by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.
Our bodies now house the Holy Spirit and our eternal souls by the Holy Spirit who dwells and abides in us.
Our whole lives will be a struggle though, over who we allow control over our lives. We have God’s power within us as earthen vessels that we can take authority over our flesh so God’s Spirit of grace and mercy shall rise in our circumstances and situations.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus The LORD; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of The LORD Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body,” 2 Corinthians 4:4-10 KJV.
“I AM your sacrificial Lamb of God once and for all. Did I not tell you there would be persecution?
Even your very own body will fight against you! However, I will bring you before many men to preach the gospel, and you shall stand with those who speak that message! You must hold dear your confession of faith!”
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
