The hour is late. There is an urgency. The message is much needed.
That’s what I hear. You can argue with God all you want; and by the way, David did. God did not bring us all this way — to simply drop us.
He did not promise or direct us, even years ago, and now He’s not going to finish in us what He started….. That idea, is a lie that the enemy and has sought to discourage and demoralize those who are chosen.
Much of what we saw and heard, way back down the line, seemed on time; then. But it did not come about then, and in many things, not even now.
We once taught that we walk by faith; we believed that. But it’s been so long. How could the plan we were so sure of then, be so long in coming?
A true anointed prophet spoke to me in a meeting about a work I was going to do. He saw it and described it before all. He said he did not know exactly when, but he did not think it would be very long.
He said, “it’s in a three.” I was sure it was 3 months. I never dreamed that it was 3 decades!
I searched for it; I went everywhere looking. Up and down the roads and I sought The LORD to find where this place was.
God used me throughout that time, but never in the way I thought I understood it to be. It never even dawned on me, that I might lose my way and even come to the place, I didn’t even want it anymore.
But God knew. This thing about His timing, remains a mystery. We still can’t comprehend that God is not a man, and He does not think like us. He does not function in the same limited space.
One must admit, this time we are in now is like no other. Many of us heard years ago, if we were truly listening, that every thing that could be shaken would be shaken.
To the point, who would have ever dreamed that Churches all over the world, would be completely shut down. That all normal business, would come to a sudden halt; not just here, but in almost every village, town and metropolitan area across the planet.
Was it not the Master Himself, who said some people had called themselves? He didn’t call them and He did not send them.
The ability to discern people and things in The Spirit, is not a gift meant to stay on the shelf; unused. In fact, The Word said that these things become more accurate and acute, with practice.
Whatever gifts and callings that have been shut out, were never erased. The fact that the true order of the ministry that was placed in the Church was thwarted and even silenced in many places, did not stop those people from being called.
The power and control issues that have operated in Churches, have come to a halt. There’s no doubt that many will attempt to restart where they left off.
The very idea that anyone would try to circumvent the directive to only follow the leading of The Spirit, is of great offense. It literally shakes me to my feet to know, that there are those who would dare try to substitute the genuine move of The Holy Ghost.
Robbing the Saints of the power and authority they were also given in the Church, was grave error. The Gifts and Ministries not operating in fullness!
So many of us are sick; terribly ill. Unknown numbers are suffering from wounds, both emotional and spiritual that have never been fully healed or recovered.
Let me be human; that’s just fully crazy. Sheep, driven out, that still nobody is yet even looking for?
Do we recall, that there was a Church in the latter writings that was blind; they thought they had need of nothing?
They did not know that in His eyes, they were all wretched and in tatters — entertained, satisfied, and cold? Blinded by whom?
We were once instructed to make our calling and election sure. Do it again. Reaffirm what you are and what you have been anointed to do.
Is God going to do a mighty work now?
Will Christ come back for His Church, that never reached its true fullness?
This hour desires all people with an ear. It is true, that those who have been forgiven much, love much.
When you know you’re nothing, there’s less pride and boasting.
Let the uncalled grow silent; they have been discerned — get on our faces and stay there.
Let the truly chosen, then stand.
