A clarion call to suffer that the work might be glorified!
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us (2 Timothy 2:12)
As I was meditating upon The LORD, I had asked The LORD previously what He had for the people for the month of April and He begin to say to me that there is a work to be done in this season.
The LORD let me know that the time is short and every second of our time needs to be used wisely in the up-building of the Kingdom of God!
I’m hearing The LORD say that Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece. And, an evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends. Wickedness loves company — and leads others into sin, (Proverbs 16 27-29).
And, It behooves us to work the works of the One having sent us while it is day; night is coming, when no one will be able to work, (John 9:4, BLB).
I tell you my heart beats because The LORD is soon to come and it seems as though the time is moving faster than the world knows.
It seems like I cannot do enough or live holy enough to stand up to the plumbline of God’s Word! But, as I begin to listen to Holy Spirit, I realized He is preparing His People for the end-times, by teaching them what it means to live a life free and separated from sin in this season.
Not only that, but He is teaching His sons and His daughters the price they must pay for their love for Him and to follow Him in this season!
No, it won’t be cheap, because if we love Him, we will be willing to take up our cross daily to follow Him; but if we deny Him he will also deny us.
For He said to me that He is using the five-fold ministry gifts to not just to teach in Words, but in both demonstration and in power in this season.
As He told me this, He let me know that this will be a call to suffer.
He said to me that in this suffering is where both He and you will be glorified. And, that your greatest testimonies, witnessing, and preaching will come through the call to suffer, and to surrender our flesh to the cross.
He said that this suffering will not only bring your flesh to the cross, but this suffering will prove to the world that your faith in Him is real! It is genuine! It is not just a lip performance!
It is not just entertainment and neither is it about the superficial love of a title or the position of being one of God’s soldiers, but this call will purge out with consuming fire, those that are called, from those that are chosen to suffer and are willing to go through the process and as a result it will cause others to seek you out (like the Queen of Sheba searched out King Solomon) because it will bring about some chatter regarding the revelations and wisdom God has placed on the inside of you because of your decision to endure the suffering!
And, this chatter will be unusual chatter saith The LORD, because people will be chattering regarding your bold stance in standing up to defend the gospel. Your stand in the faith and the testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
And, like Apostle Paul when he was placed in prison, there will be many who will try to distort (twist/ debate) the word of God that The LORD has placed in your mouth, saith The LORD, but they shall not prosper and the words that are in your mouth shall be like a consuming fire or a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces, saith The LORD!
All this shall be done, saith The LORD, that My Servants shall be glorified and purified in order to reveal who My True Servants are in this season, those whom I have both called and chosen.
For the true Men and women of God shall come under great persecution as the apostle and the prophets (believers) of old did, in order for those who are counterfeits to be exposed.
The reason for that exposure will be because they will seek to undermine those who are standing steadfast and firm on the faith and the testimony of God.
For I hear God saying, “In the month of April, I God, shall call upon many of My faithful warriors (from the four corners of the earth) to demonstrate to the world that I AM the God of Jehovah, I AM the God of Elohim and in Me there is no other.
For I shall make My Words (power) known unto a dying world, one that has both left Me and have no faith in Me, because of those who have refused to take a stand, because the enemy has caused them to look back, not knowing that I AM married to the backslider and it is not My desire that any man should perish, but that all should have eternal life.”
For I heard God say that if we live in the flesh, this is the fruit of our labor!
For, many have been caught between two opinions but now, saith God, is the acceptable time of The LORD to choose this day whom you will serve; whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve The LORD, (Joshua 24:15).
Apostle Paul one of God’s faithful and steadfast servants made up in his mind that he was determined to go all the way with The LORD no matter if it was in life, death and or in prison he was going all the way with The LORD!
I am sure Apostle Paul cried, sang praises and worshipped God, but he never had a desire to turn around and if anything the suffering made him even more determined to live for Christ!
He was unlike many believers, who cry for the suffering to end. Apostle Paul had faith that God was in it with him working it all out for his good!
What about you are you angry with God and others blaming them, because you are suffering or have you decided like Job; “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him?” (Job 13:15)
Paul refused to allow the enemy to defeat him; in fact he was joyful even in the time of his testing and he demonstrated maturity he refused to allow the Philippians to see him whining or crying like a dog with his tail between his legs whipped and defeat; especially in the sight of the new converts so what did he say,:
“Meanwhile, live in such a way that you are a credit to the Message of Christ. Let nothing in your conduct hang on whether I come or not. Your conduct must be the same whether I show up to see things for myself or hear of it from a distance. Stand united, singular in vision, contending for people’s trust in the Message, the good news, not flinching or dodging in the slightest before the opposition. Your courage and unity will show them what they’re up against: defeat for them, victory for you — and both because of God. There’s far more to this life than trusting in Christ. There’s also suffering for him. And the suffering is as much a gift as the trusting. You’re involved in the same kind of struggle you saw me go through, on which you are now getting an updated report in this letter,” Philippians 1:27-30, MSB.
What shall separate you from the Love of God? (Romans 8:35-39)
