The year 2021 is coming to a close, and The LORD is helping me understand certain events that will happen in our near future.
There will continue to be a deeper decline into chaos and anarchy. God assures me that His true Voices will arise during great turmoil and upheavals, though their messages are not received yet.
However, one day they will be recognized by The Remnant and others who are truly seeking out those who are hearing the mind of Christ.
In the mixed mess of feeling literally like they are being tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men, God who is rich in His Mercy and Kindness will warn, direct, and even taking some by their hands and lead them out of false religious organizations.
However, there are those who have the seed of righteousness within them not yet developed, and in His Kindness and great Love, The LORD will provide an Exodus from the error of men’s ways, even as the angels led Lot out of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Because The LORD heard Abraham’s intercessions, so will many be led out due to the prayers of the Saints.
Truly The Remnant will find times of refreshing from God’s presence and from those who fellowship with one another, for it will literally be truly God’s Family.
Yes, there will be a great harvest of souls and wonderful events that will take place amid great upheavals that will prepare God’s People for times of war and great hardship.
It is not the time to fear these things as a true believer, but to realize God is preparing us to stand — no matter what!
The true Believer has nothing to fear, because we belong to God and heaven is our home! The last enemy — death — was defeated on The Cross!
The Remnant and those who hear and know his voice, must Fast and Pray and afflict our flesh to take it captive to do our spirit filled will. The devil is not our main opposition — our flesh is our main opposition.
Just like a wild horse must be bit, bridled, and broken, so too we must become usable for The Master. We must allow The LORD to break us of our selfish will. However, I want to take it a step further.
We pride ourselves in The Church as being grown, when we have been ingrown, and just like an ingrown toenail hurts and flares up, it makes it hard to walk. Just watch the limp…. and it will give you insight.
There are many who have become that way as Christians, who at one time were like those broken horses that were bit and bridled, and The LORD could ride us, and there was a time when He would release us from that bit and bridle, as He wanted us to be led, with His eye upon us.
But we have entered a New Day. A selfish Day when we don’t want to admit that we may have lost that Fire that we once had. Instead of allowing The LORD to release the bit and bridle, so we could be led by His Eye upon us, we find ourselves in a place where we have no order.
We find ourselves in pastures that are green and lush and fenced in enclosures. We have grazed and feasted within those borders — but now The LORD would like to take those horses once again and guide them with His Eye upon them.
But He has found that we have become rebellious and stubborn! We run from Him or run from Ministers who are trying to help us! We became prideful, thinking that we don’t need anyone to tell us anything.
Some of us have been like those horses in pastures and enclosed areas of peaceful easy feelings. But when The Master calls us or someone The Master has led to us, we rebel, and we smell the clover, and we smell the grasses, and all our needs are met.
There comes a time, that is so far spent, that we need to know this! It is not the devil that is our worst enemy, it’s our own selfish will, and rebellion, reverting to stubbornness.
We are living in a day and the hour is spent and it is time for each of us to take authority over our flesh for our flesh is like that horse it wants what it wants.
That horse forgot willingly, neglectfully, through ease and comfort, all the training it had and when The Master called us!
After being in the pasture for so long, we should be willing and obedient to run to the fence or the gate to recognize The Master, so that we are prepared for what’s ahead.
As long as we live on this earth, we will have a flesh body even as pilgrims and ambassadors we represent a different country in a different life than this earth. We must bring our body under subjection to The Holy Spirit.
There once was a day when we were truly in obedience to God, but now our flesh has gotten in the way and we as believers have been given the Power and Authority to bring our body under subjection to The Holy Ghost.
How? We must yank ourselves, like that horse, and put a bit and bridle in our mouth and we must realize our flesh — it is not our friend.
If a horse doesn’t believe you’re in authority, it won’t obey you. But once you take the reins of your own flesh and yank those reins and make that body do what is right, you will remain rebellious.
We are three parts: spirit, soul, and body. Our spirit is eternal, so is our soul. Our soul is what makes us unique, it’s our personality, it’s who we are as a person, and it’s how we will be recognized in heaven.
The soul is what will differ from other people is our mind, the will, and the intellect of a person.
So, we find that our flesh will never be our friend! It will always be with you every day and as our enemy, we have got to be always aware that coddling our flesh and giving it leeway to do what it wants will conquer us instead of us conquering it.
Paul said, “I die daily.” What Paul meant was he died daily to the things of this world!
The things of this flesh are what cause compromise to the things of God and our flesh is not our friend!
So, we all must become aware that every day we get up and look in the mirror, we deal with the fallen body called the flesh! The flesh must be conquered daily or else it will lead us astray into sin and into the fallen nature.
So aggressively today, begin to see what you are doing daily! Repent, turn away from it so that you can rise out of the fleshly nature into the nature of the Spirit of God.
Being spirit filled is not a one-time deal! We are to be continually filled with The Holy Ghost daily. As we keep God first in prayer, worship, and study of The Holy Bible we will have the strength to bring our body under subjection.
Let it not be known or said that we had to be re-broken again, because we became wild with sin and our own selfish will.
If we started off right but ended up wrong. Now is the time to take the Authority you must make that flesh wake up and obey!
You yank those reins and command it to get up! You yank those reins again when that urge comes to want to overeat when you’re supposed to be fasting.
It is The Will of God that we take our flesh and make it ready to prepare for what’s coming. That doesn’t mean you’re the old gray mare that ain’t what she used to be!
No, you are a spirited, beautiful, and greatly loved steed of The LORD! Once again, He wants you to be available, so that He can release you from your confines so that you can run again with his eye upon you.
First yes, it feels like ‘ouch’, but we must thank The LORD this is not a demotion, but a promotion for a beautiful, brilliantly white flowing steed led by The LORD is beautiful to witness!
Do you think one can handle a spirited and wild untamed steed left to her fancy? I think she’s much more than The Master can handle! Do you think you can handle one like this?
However, in many more ways than one, I do believe the set time has come. Indeed, her seasoned time and the set time has come.
Indeed, she runs wild and free, with the winds she is kicking up as she whinnies away! There were many who dared to catch her!
However, she kept her head proudly in the air sniffing for every scent of danger, always aware!
Yet, she is always aware how she fares because in her heart she stays within sight at all times of the day and night. For many have tried to capture her, break her, and dared to mount her!
Her spirit hath broken many a back and bone and it will take a special man to get to know. Yet once she is nurtured and trust only becomes one with her and as she allows him to mount her then shall they become one with the winds…
“I will instruct the and teach the and the way that thou shalt go: being not as a horse or as a mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in a bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.” Psalm 32:8-9 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
