I Have Set Apart My True Prophets
I Have Set Apart My True Prophets and Apostles for This Hour
“How long, O you sons of men, will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness and seek falsehood? Selah. But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; the LORD will hear when I call to Him,” Psalm 4:2-3.
“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, the LORD is my God,” Zechariah 13:9.
“Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction,” Isaiah 48:10.
“Those who are called to My Service and who are marked for a life set apart unto Me, will experience many things that would be labeled as strange to those around them.
For the world would know you not. The world knows nothing about the plight that you now are experiencing.
But those set apart for these last days are going through a series of divine encounters that would be beyond the scope of anything that even many believers would experience.
For I have set apart my true prophets and apostles, for the hour that they are in now.
They must experience the deep heat of my furnace. For it has been turned up all the way.
For it must be this way in order for them to be tempered. For with the tempering comes a metal that is ready to be used in my hands.
And then when the tempering time comes to an end, the work that I have called them to do will be made manifest to a world around them.
Then the world will know that I AM the great I AM. Then the mountains will bow to my presence.
Then those called for a time such as this, will set the world ablaze.
Thus would say the Spirit of the LORD.”

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
Thank you for that vital word. It is a very difficult path to walk out the call of the Lord. But He walks beside and gives such comfort and calls us to endure even when the furnace is heated to an extreme. It calls us to the cross of Jesus Christ. We have been a very happy clappy church, but we forgot the cross. We forgot that Jesus has called us to take our cross and follow no matter the cost. And that cross is a painful place. It was painful for our Lord, and so it must be for us as he prunes, purges, and separates us unto Himself. So we yield ourselves to Him and He is so very worth it.
I so appreciate the role of a True prophet.
How important to heed their warnings!!
Thank you for that vital word. Its a painful path to walk to follow his call. But He walks beside and gives such comfort, urging one on to endure when the heat of that furnace fire is intense. It calls us ever back to the cross of Jesus Christ. We have been such a happy clappy church calling on the Lord for His blessing, but we forgot the cross. We forgot that His call is to take up that cross and follow, no matter the cost. And the cross is a place of pain, – it was for our Dear Lord, and so it must be for us a place of pain as He cleans and purges and separates us unto Himself. Bless the Lord, He is so worth it.
