Yesterday I had a vision of a man [non-descript] longish hair, trying to outrun a sand avalanche of sorts, and it was consuming him, that is running over him, and was now up to his shoulders.
Sand = wrong foundation
On Christ, the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
Many in the church are consumed by a wrong foundation, wrong teachings.
I felt the Lord was saying, “The Church doesn’t seem to understand how to be respectful or kind even though in disagreement with others in the world. Much is built on a non-suffering gospel that says, you can have whatever you want, if you have enough faith.”
Even though Jesus said, the poor will always be with you. And He did NOT live a lavish lifestyle. It says He had no place to lay His precious head much of the time.
“People think they don’t have to pay a cost at all for the power I want to give them. They’ve grown exclusive and mean to anyone who disagrees with them or doesn’t fit with their beliefs/opinions. So if someone is not healed at the altar, they chide and judge them that they must be in sin as if they were not in pride!
Wrong foundations destroy your testimony. The world is looking and admiring those who LIVE what the Word says. They won’t listen anymore to “junk food churches”. You must display MY goodness, MY holiness, MY authority in the earth or no one will listen now. They’ve seen all the greed and hatred and murderous attitudes towards anyone who disagrees with you, so before you open your mouth, ASK ME for what to say.
You MUST be dependent on ME for true wisdom only comes from Me. Even an unbelieving world recognizes true wisdom when it is served to them unless they are reprobate in heart, and unable to hear, bound by demons.
You are sent to bring LIGHT that breaks the chains of bondage, not to put more bondage on them to perform for the harsh taskmaster. So renounce religious spirits and know MY GRACE and power are with you as you seek My face to deliver the lost around you. Soon you will see that people you encounter will MANIFEST their demons around you as the light EXPOSES the darkness within them. This is already happening to a degree, but it will increase exponentially. Pray for those around you who are NOT saved, not only your church members and family if you want to Me to give you authority over those entities in those around you, that you pray for. I didn’t call you to exclusivity.
Another admonition is that to underestimate others is disrespect and pride, and violence towards them. Neglect is a type of violence. Allow ME to be ruler of your opinions. You are not God, I AM. Surrender your pride of your opinions to ME and allow ME to show you TRUTH. Do you really want to know the truth? Because I AM the TRUTH So My opinion counts more than yours. Look to Me for the answer instead of being judge and jury.
At the same time there are many due to wrong foundations being swallowed up because they are double-minded in all their ways. They expend a lot of energy pleasing people rather than ME, because they’ve been so controlled by others. They say whatever someone else says, rather than reading the Word and studying for themselves. LOOK TO ME. I Am the Author and Finisher of your faith! I AM the Way, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No one come to the Father except through ME!
Look to ME daughters of Zion, for I am elevating you! You see all the hatred towards women arising all over the world, women are targets because of your role in procreation, and the role you will play in helping ME bring judgments on this world. Satan is enraged, and he is actively pursuing you specifically to try to limit you. BUT I AM your BRIDEGROOM KING. I stand beside you, and I AM in you. I am behind you, over you, under you, I surround you with songs of deliverance. I am RELEASING YOU. I will uncover the eyes of the blind, and unstop the ears of the deaf. I WILL keep My promises to you! I WILL, I WILL , I WILL uphold you with My righteous right hand in the battle that is at hand, and all will know that I have loved you. Rest in My arms right now. Let ME hold you and heal the wounds of the wicked that have pierced you through.”
