How can you escape what is coming, that is persecution, for it is promised to all who will live a godly life following after the One who has called you? For yes, this is the end of all times and the godly will suffer persecution and go through much tribulation; but what is the purpose of all this many will say? Why do we have to face such hardship, torment, abuse and turmoil?
If you are called to be My disciples, then you must walk in the same path that I walked. If they hated Me, then they will hate Me in you. They are like ravenous wolves seeking those who they can devour. They have the same fruit as their father. They come to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come to bring you abundant life. Keep your eyes on Me no matter what you face. I am with you always to the end of time. Blessed are those who die for me.
I see your heart that you want to please Me and to walk in the path that I walked, but many are afraid that they may have to face something they feel they cannot endure. You need to trust Me in all things. Do you believe that I would lead you to something you could not endure? Do you believe that I love you and that I only allow that which is good? I said that I would provide the way of escape.
You are like a piece of coal that is going through the fire that once it burns brightly it provides sufficient heat to fulfill its purpose. Yes, many have gone through much fire of affliction and they have patiently endured the testing. They are being brought to perfection because of their faithfulness to trust Me.
Whatsoever things you desire ask of Me and I will give it to you. Because I know your heart you will ask according to My will and not from selfish desires. Ask of Me and I will give you My kingdom. I will give you all that the world seeks after if you put Me first and My kingdom. I will set you a table in the midst of your enemies. You shall fear no evil because I am with you. I will lead you along still waters and give you peace. You shall receive rest in the abundance of My grace.
Keep your eyes on Me and I will lead you in the way you shall go . You shall walk in My truth and discernment. You will receive wisdom and knowledge at all times. You shall know My voice and follow Me. Yes, this is the end of all times and I know who My people are. They will stay close to Me. They are My sheep and I am their Shepherd and I will lead them to green pastures. No matter what they will go through My grace will be sufficient.
Grab hold of Me and I will lead you in the battle. Stay covered with My armor and walk in My love forgiving those who come against you. Be a light as darkness covers the whole earth and My glory will overcome it all. Allow My truth to flow through you no matter what the cost. I will shield you with My glory and blind the enemy. I will cause confusion to destroy their plans.
Be still and watch My salvation overtake you. No matter what know that I AM God and that I am in control. I am Sovereign and I reign victorious. My kingdom come; My will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

|Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.|
