“The Big Reveal will precede the Great Awakening that must come in order for the end-time Harvest to proceed as spoken in My Word.”
These Words The LORD spoke to me regarding exposing corruption and revealing truth.
The sovereign move of God we are witnessing today is truly proving that this “earth shaking” rude awakening time will literally be a “wake up call” to some.
Yet I heard The LORD very clearly speak to me today, “The time is here and you are a witness that truly the very elect are being deceived.”
I stopped and sat still to make certain this was the voice I am so accustomed to hear morning by morning, and immediately I recalled a word I received last year that I am sending today for you also to consider.
“Has our Perception become our Deception?”
I am pondering today on the many lies we believe and so am actually praying for our country and the Church in America and asking The LORD for understanding about how the pride of our heart deceives us many times.
How we perceive others through our eyes (or the eyes of our understanding) is often rooted in places In our own heart where are darkened and the result is that perception becomes deception. We must cry out to The LORD to open the eyes of our understanding lest our efforts to discern result in wrong judgments of one another.
Recently many wounded people have come to me for prayer, crying and seeking understanding regarding gossip and rumors and many things spoken as discernment, but which were actually rooted in self, jealousy and judgment.
We are in a great time of division, misunderstanding and self-centeredness.
It is imperative that we understand that division can also be an instrument The LORD uses just as He did with Paul and Silas. Division sometimes comes from God to carry out His plan.
Times and seasons of our life contain times of maturing and growth. If we outgrow the place where we are, sometimes The LORD must reposition us or move us on.
We outgrow many garments and get new ones. When we are ready, we also receive new shoes to walk in, but that is a spiritual act of God for us. Not all will remain with you.
God strategically places people where He wants them to be for His purposes.
Presently we are seeing God making many new connections. It is stated in Acts 15 regarding separating Paul and Silas, “And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other”.
Contention is also showing up in the division we are witnessing now in the world today. It is rooted In self and competition, jealousy and lack of identity.
The LORD is raising up a standard for His body to walk in Calvary LOVE, FORGIVENESS and WISDOM releasing a servant heart of humility in response to much deception.
Deception is the glue that holds every stronghold together. Stop and reflect on this for a moment.
“The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, in your lofty dwelling, who say in your heart, “Who will bring me down to the ground?”” Obadiah 1:3.
“Yes, once again, we must guard our hearts with all diligence for out of it flows all the issues of life,” Proverbs 4:23.
The New Living Translation states it this way….
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it affects everything you do. We are the watchmen, the doorkeepers for our own souls.”
Asking The LORD today to shine the light of HIS glory into every dark place in your soul and bring deep healing and release discernment to rightly divide the truth that we may truly walk in truth and be filled with joy…. yes, joy unspeakable and full of glory!
Let it be so. The Light of your Glory LORD grow brighter and brighter in the darkness of our land and in our soul!
