2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 NKJV The Great Apostasy
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
“Beloved of My heart, know that I am with you, and I am not anxious, though there is much to be anxious about in this world, I am in perfect peace, and so should you be if you know the truth. For though you suffer in the flesh, you will prevail by My Most Holy Spirit! Know that the floods will come, but I will be with you in the floods. I will be with you in the fires. I will be with you in famine and shakings. As I unroot the old, and bring down the false foundations, I am rebuilding for Myself a glorious church that will not abandon their First Love.
Those who’ve been first will be last, and those who’ve been last will be first. Those who chose the easy route, and man’s manipulations, and control, seeking their own kingdoms will fall. Those who chose my way, and allowed me to crush their pride, and endured the path of suffering will share in My glory.”
Philippians 3:10-11 NKJV
“… that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings , being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
Do not be deceived in this hour by the many antichrists who preach a lifeless gospel of convenience and prosperity without end. Do not conform yourselves to the harlot church, that thinks there is no value in the CROSS. Though I pour out mighty miracles and signs and wonders, My character remains the same. Thank ME for crushing your pride! Thank Me for working humility in you. THANK ME for the ways I have sustained you even in darkness, and wilderness times. For though it has been hard, you are paying the cost that you will not be contaminated by power and money. I am making you trustworthy to handle KINGDOM finances. I am making you like the first apostles who redeemed slaves, who gave to the poor, and never neglected the widows, and the suffering.
I am making you like My own HEART, that you will have compassion for the persecuted, the rejected, the suffering and the weak and infirm. KNOW that those who pretend to harness My power, will be exposed. Know that those who pretend to My throne, and pretend to be doing a large effective work, yet are siphoning off money to promote themselves more than ME, I WILL DEAL WITH IN MY WAY.
Pray that you may escape yourself, for with any judgments you make, you will be judged in the same way. For if you judge without mercy, neither will you receive mercy from ME.
I know what it will take to turn the hearts of the deluded. I am turning the baton of power and favor over to those who have endured the tests and promptings of My Spirit, and who have been found faithful in heart. I will do all I said I will do. I will remove the hirelings and I will turn the sheep over to those who will truly care for them with MY HEART and MY COMPASSION. Who not just espouse love with their mouths, but will help in practical ways also.
I will exact an accounting from ALL who are Mine for every word that comes out of your mouth. So do not find yourself aligning with the accuser. Find yourself thanking Me for all I have done to remove all the corruption from your own lives. Thank Me that your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. Thank Me that I have tested and tried you, and purged you like gold and silver! Thank ME for the pain! Thank me for the rejections! Thank ME for the persecution and sufferings and bring them to the CROSS and lay them there as a sweet sacrifice of your love for what the Son of Man did for you. Do not hold on to pain and bitterness. Put away bitter rantings and anger. Many have judged with righteous anger, and then judged yourselves worse than the corrupt ones. Lay down your own self judgments as well. I am the GOD of MERCY. I am EL RACHUM! I am the gracious forgiving GOD who is full of mercy and forgiveness for the one who wants a pure heart, despite their inability to achieve it on their own efforts.
You can do NOTHING apart from ME.
YOU CAN DO NOTHING APART FROM ME!
YOU CAN DO NOTHING APART FROM ME!
YOU CANNOT WORSHIP WITHOUT ME. YOU CANNOT PRAY WITHOUT ME. YOU CANNOT READ YOUR BIBLE WITHOUT ME. YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND IT WITHOUT ME. YOU CANNOT PERFORM RIGHTEOUS ACTS, OR OBEY ME WITHOUT MY GRACE TO DO IT! So WHO DESERVES THE CREDIT?
Will the clay say to the Potter, What are you doing ?
Trust ME with your brothers and sisters. Pray for those who fall to deception. PRAY MY WILL, NOT YOURS! Lay them down at My feet, and if you have the right attitude of heart, you will find that I answer.
Do not play judge when I AM THE ONLY GOOD ONE !
If you are a judge, you are not a doer of the law, but only a judge.
Do you not understand that this means you are not following the law yourself, because you are too focused on what others are doing or not doing, and judging them, that you fail to focus on your own life and walk ? How can you love your brother and at the same time accuse him? How can you hate your brother, and say you love ME?
Do not hate those who are immature and imperfect, or even in apostasy . PRAY, PRAY, PRAY for them as if they were your brother in the flesh. You love your sons and daughters, and pray for them do you not, no matter how far they stray, you do not give up on them. RIGHT? So why do you think it’s right to give up on those who are not perfected or who’ve gotten into deception? Yes, do not stand where they stand, do not align yourselves with unrighteousness and mammon. But PRAY that they may recover righteous standing with ME, before it is too late for them.
Isaiah 58:9-11 NKJV
“Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, If you extend your soul to the hungry And satisfy the afflicted soul, Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as the noonday. The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”
Hebrews 2:10-12 NKJV Bringing Many Sons to Glory
“For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.””
I am not telling you to pray for the seared heart. I am not telling you to do more than I do. I intercede night and day for My church to the Father. I LOVE MY CHURCH, though it is corrupt in many ways, I AM ABLE to correct those who are truly MINE. So trust that I am ABLE to perfect even those who seem far off.
I AM the GOD OF ALL GLORY. I AM THE PERFECT AND JUST ONE. DECREE MY WILL, DECREE MY KINGDOM. Ask for the manifest presence of Holy Spirit in your homes, and in your assemblies. ALLOW ME to enlighten your understanding on all that concerns you. For I AM WITH YOU. I AM EMMANUEL, and I will see you through the floods, the fires, the storms of life. I AM FAITHFUL and TRUE.
There is much deception in this hour and many Antichrists have come forth in the world. Do not be deceived, seek MY FACE daily. My presence is the antidote for all that you see around you. My presence will impart all you need to OVERCOME. REST IN MY ARMS, and ALLOW ME TO TOUCH YOU WITH MY GLORY. Implosions of My GLORY are coming that will destroy every chain the enemy has burdened you with. I will explode within My beloveds, and My grace will explode to release the fruits of the spirit in abundance in your life. You will know what I want, because you will hear more clearly, and see more clearly, and all your senses will feel the change. Life will never be the same again. This glory will shine through you to enlighten the lives of all around you. No matter what you go through, it will dissolve all the doubts, all the tauntings of the evil one . Daily communion with ME, will keep you. You cannot leave that time with me without suffering loss.
You MUST remain dependent on ME. LEARN this NOW, and it will be easier for you.
Depend on ME for all the answers you need. WAIT on ME in the secret place. I will not disappoint you. WAIT on ME. LISTEN for the still small voice. Dreams will become more vivid, and visions more real. Prophecy will explode in others as well as you pray for them to receive it! All that your heart has longed for I WILL BE to you. TRUST My beloveds, that I will honor your sacrifices of praise and worship to Me. CAST ALL YOUR CARES ON ME for I care FOR you!”
Joel 2:28-3:1 NKJV God’s Spirit Poured Out
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.”
1 John 2:18-23 NKJV Deceptions of the Last Hour
“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
Daniel 7:11-15 AMP
“I looked then because of the sound of the great words which the horn was speaking. I watched until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. And as for the rest of the beasts, their power of dominion was taken away; yet their lives were prolonged [for the duration of their lives was fixed] for a season and a time. I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came one like a Son of man, and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And there was given Him [the Messiah] dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is one which shall not be destroyed. [Revelation 5:1-10] As for me, Daniel, my spirit was grieved and anxious within me, and the visions of my head alarmed and agitated me.
