On January 17 2016, I awoke from a dream with such a strong presence of The Holy Spirit and a crushing burden for The Church.
My dream was about an evangelist who kept pleading with the people, “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit! Do not grieve Him!”
Those words lingered in the air as I awoke. The burden was so crushing and the feeling that The LORD was grieving poured through my being.
He began showing me The Church is a sleeping giant that needs to be awakened! It has to be poked and prodded. If it doesn’t awaken, then persecution MUST come. There is no other way.
Warning: This is the way the cry of the grieving Holy Spirit poured out of me. It is a harsh warning for us.
“Wake Up Sleeping Giant!”
Arise Church! Arise!
Your Savior comes for a spotless bride, without sin, without compromise.
“Wake up, sleeping giant!”
Dust off your rags and put on a robe of pure white. It is time to consecrate yourself and repent! Receive The Holy Spirit — your Comforter, Teacher, Protector, and Helper.
Without Him you have no power to do the things you will be commissioned to do.
If you ignore and resist Him, your assignment will be given to another, so that God’s will can be accomplished.
“Do not grieve Him!”
He is your friend. He wants to teach you the ways of God and reveal the truths of the Father to you.
Your clothes are scarlet, oh Church! You have compromised and are found wanting.
There is no reward for the stubborn and proud.
Rebellion is as witchcraft in His eyes and your pride will only cause you to fall.
The LORD cannot be used as a toy to be played with whenever you feel like, then tossed aside at your whim. He is not a magician, only there to perform miracles when you want to show off or when you are in need of one.
He is not your servant either, to be ordered around to do your bidding, to fix your problems and provide your needs.
“Wake up sleeping giant!”
The LORD of Hosts is returning! And you are not ready. He weeps at your attitudes.
For if the church, the one He placed Himself on The Cross for, is not willing to acknowledge Him before the world, He will not acknowledge her before The Father.
Many are called, but few are chosen because He knocks on the door of every heart and wants to reside there. Only a few answer that call.
He wants to empower you with His Holy Spirit!
“Now is the time all creation is waiting for, the revealing of the sons of God.”
“For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God,” Romans 8:19.
All creation is waiting for us to stand up!
Put on the Armor of God, for we are called to fight now!
Fight for Truth to be heard in your family, in your community, in your city, in your country and in the world.
“You are called to be a Warrior of the King!”
You must prepare yourself and dwell in The Word.
Let it give you Knowledge and Power. You will need it to fight the enemy.
Without it you will be conquered. With it you will be conquerors, for that is what The LORD of Heaven’s armies will make us.
“So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you,” Revelation 3:3.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of The LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but The LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising,” Isaiah 60:1-3.
“Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lamp stand out of its place — unless you repent,” Revelation 2:5.
