“Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors,” Psalm 24:3-9 NKJV.
“Oh you who say, I have no idols in my heart! Even you have made yourselves an idol in much of your life.
Whenever you put YOU first above My opinion, and My Will, are you not making yourself an idol?
Who is it that gave you your wisdom? Who is it that gave you favor? Who is it that gave you your family?
Who is it that gave you your education? Who is it that gave you your talent to achieve?
Who is it that gave you your finances? Do you think YOU earned it on your own?
If I remove My favor, what do you think would happen?
Know you not who I AM?
Know you not that I AM the ALMIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL. THERE is NONE LIKE ME!
Who are you oh man, that you think you can create in the image of Me?
You have built your nest high on the mountains of the earth. But who created those mountains?
Who created the beasts of the earth, and the trees of the fields? I wish that it were not so among those who are called by My name.
But even in My house are many who are thinking somehow, that their success is due to My approval, when it is due to their efforts and My love has not opposed them, for I was hoping for repentance and humility to come forth in process, but instead there is alignment with leviathan and greed.
I would that it were not so in My house, but there has been wolves that have crept into My pastures and devoured the sheep. There have been spirits come in unawares because My people lack discernment.
Why do they lack discernment you may ask? Because they lack healing and because holiness is a rare commodity in today’s church.
You cannot live for your flesh and have discernment. You cannot strive, and be filled with envy and selfish ambition and pride, and expect to have discernment.
Those who give in to pride are given over to delusion and deception to the enemy. And his forces continue to grow and multiply. So that now there is a great chasm between what is true and what is false.”
“Who is this coming out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all the merchant’s fragrant powders? Behold, it is Solomon’s couch, with sixty valiant men around it, of the valiant of Israel,” [ Solomon here a type of the Bridegroom Jesus] Song 3:6-7 NKJV.
“Who is this, that is coming to cleanse His house? It is Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of LORDS. He is coming to His house.
And HE will take charge of His flock and restore good shepherds to the flock. Some will be healed and delivered. Others will be promoted to take charge of the sheep.
But He will return to set in order what is not in order. All the fighting about the form will stop.
Persecution is coming. I have ordained many changes that have come and will come.
STOP using your swords to bludgeon those who meet together who don’t have degrees and the honor of MEN!
Stop using your swords against the Sauls in the Land! Forgive and you will be forgiven!
I WILL WIELD MY SWORD against the SAULS and I will bring MY order to MY house!”
“Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree. There your mother brought you forth; there she who bore you brought you forth,” Song 8:5 NKJV.
“The Bride is to lean on ME. The bride is being prepared and I AM soaking you in scented oils and perfumes. Come and bathe in My presence to receive these healing oils! For I AM longing to prepare you that you may not lack any good thing in the days to come which are growing darker.
LEAN ON ME My beloveds! Depend on ME for all you say and do. Ask Me for the grace to do this and I will give it to you. I AM longing to CONSUME you with My love.”
The LORD in Judgment and Salvation
“Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One who is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength ? “I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like one who treads in the wine-press? I have trodden the wine-press alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me. For I have trodden them in My anger, and trampled them in My fury; their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have stained all My robes. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. I looked, but there was no one to help, and I wondered that there was no one to uphold; therefore My own arm brought salvation for Me; and My own fury, it sustained Me. I have trodden down the peoples in My anger, made them drunk in My fury, and brought down their strength to the earth,” Isaiah 63:1-6 NKJV.
At this scripture I began to weep and sob deeply – the Spirit of intercession came upon me.
“The day of the LORD is near My beloveds!
Weep My priests between the porch and the altar. Weep for the lost of the earth.
Weep for those who are misguided within My Church. Weep now, and the weeping will be less later.
Weep you women. Wail for the shepherds! Wail for the sons of men, for I AM coming and My sword is on My side and none will escape it!”
“Who is this coming up like a flood, Whose waters move like the rivers? Egypt rises up like a flood, and its waters move like the rivers; and he says, ‘I will go up and cover the earth, I will destroy the city and its inhabitants.’
Come up, O horses, and rage, O chariots! And let the mighty men come forth: the Ethiopians and the Libyans who handle the shield, and the Lydians who handle and bend the bow. For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself on His adversaries. The sword shall devour; it shall be satiated and made drunk with their blood; for the Lord God of hosts has a sacrifice in the north country by the River Euphrates,” Jeremiah 46:7-10.
“Do you see the signs? Do you hear the tumult of the nations? Do you see the plans of the wicked?
Be NOT AFRAID! For WHO IS MIGHTIER? THE LION WHO DEVOURS OR THE LION OF JUDAH?
Call for the mighty men! Wake up the sleeping servants! Call them to praise!
Call them to worship Me! Call them to prayer and fasting! Awaken those who sleep!
Speak My Word to them! Confront the spirit of APATHY, COMPLACENCY AND SOMNOLENCE ON THE LAND!
Weep for the many who are suffering in the earth. I WILL ARISE TO RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION and I WILL ANSWER THE HEAVENS AS YOU LIFT YOUR VOICES IN PRAYER AND WORSHIP.”
“After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you,” Ezekiel 38:8-9.
“I AM the guardian of Israel and nothing will keep Me from performing My Word!
Call the widows to prayer! Call the children to join you in prayer and worship!
Do not think they are too young to pray! Do not think they are too young to war. Their innocence is a great weapon!
And many of them will give wisdom to YOU!
PRAY AS FAMILIES! What is this, that you don’t pray together, yet you call yourselves Christians?
If there is no unity in your family, how can you be support for one another?
PRAY together. One can set a thousand to flight, TWO can set ten thousand to flight!
The lack of prayer in My Church is an abomination to ME.
How can you have an effect on the lost if you don’t even pray for them.
Your authority will only follow your range of prayer. If you only pray for the church going, how will you have authority for the lost?”
“The pride of your heart has deceived you, You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high ; You who say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground?’ Though you ascend as high as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” says the LORD,” Obadiah 3-4 NKJV.
“Do you think that because you have degrees and titles, that I will honor you for your achievements?
What I honor is a contrite heart! I lift up the HUMBLE! So humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD as it says, and I will lift you up.
But if you fail to ask for My humility, how will you stand in My presence when I come?
Do you think I delight in your pride?
Do you think I delight in judgment?
The grief of My heart is overflowing. My heart is broken for those who are so alone, and there is no one to ease their suffering and pain!
I see the pain of every child who is alone and hungry every day, day in and day out. There is nothing beyond my sight!
I cannot close My eyes to it! I hear their groanings. I hear their cries. I hear the plight of the homeless teenager who is full of self-destruction and self loathing!
I see the pain of the one who has never been loved! I feel all their pain and hear all their thoughts & cries all the time!
How can I stay sitting without doing something to bring JUSTICE to the earth?
I have given much grace, and I will give even MORE that My bride will be transformed to feel their pain too!
That My Bride will be transformed to hear their cries and to execute My justice!
I will not allow My turtledoves to be turned over to the wild beasts of the earth any longer without consequence!
KNOW that My justice is invading the earth! Cry out for your loved ones!
Cry out for the prodigals! Cry out for the weary and poor in spirit!
I AM listening.
The LORD God of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps!
I will bring all you need if you will but cry out and worship ME! I AM the Ultimate AUTHORITY WHO RULES and REIGNS and lays the mountains waste and exalts every valley!”
“Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet home, a tabernacle that will not be taken down; not one of its stakes will ever be removed, nor will any of its cords be broken. But there the majestic Lord will be for us a place of broad rivers and streams, in which no galley with oars will sail, nor majestic ships pass by (For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us)…..
….. And the inhabitant will not say, “I am sick”; the people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity,” Isaiah 33:20-22,24.
“Thus says the Lord God: “I will take also one of the highest branches of the high cedar and set it out. I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and will plant it on a high and prominent mountain. On the mountain height of Israel I will plant it; and it will bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a majestic cedar. Under it will dwell birds of every sort; in the shadow of its branches they will dwell. And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the Lord, have brought down the high tree and exalted the low tree, dried up the green tree and made the dry tree flourish; I, the Lord, have spoken and have done it,” Ezekiel 17:22-24.
