This is the time of the great falling away of the saints, The Great Apostasy, and at the same time many are drawing closer to Me than ever before. Many who are counterfeit are being exposed that have led many astray because they talked of things that wasn’t My will saying that I spoke them forth.
Check the spirit whether it be of Me before you take into your heart those things spoke forth. Because a wise man would be like the Bereans who checked out what they heard to see if it is a pure word given from Me. Once you know for sure it is of Me, then eat of it and allow it to take root to grow into a huge tree that could change your life for good.
Words are powerful and if they are not controlled, they can do much damage to a person’s life. For yes, many say that they are prophets, and they speak forth words of direction, but if they aren’t of Me, those same words can destroy.
So this day I put out a warning that every one who says “Lord, Lord, didn’t I prophesy in Your name and cast out devils”, and I said, “get away from Me for I never knew you!” And if I never knew them, they were those who are only wolves in sheep’s clothing sent out from the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy the inheritance of My people whether it be spiritual, emotional, mental, or physical.
Your mind is the battle field and this is where you can win or lose the war. And if you have given in to listening to that which is not sound doctrine or that of a critical or negative nature, those seeds can grow up to be a bumper crop but not that produces good fruit but that causes dangerous weeds that will choke out those good seedlings that were planted before.
Yes, this is the day of the great falling away, and it all begins with giving ear to those things that are not of Me. Test the spirit before you allow a seed to be planted in the bed of your heart.
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” Acts 17:11.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
