“…. And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do ; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment” 1 Chronicles 12:23.
“It is a new year coming; it is a new year coming. And with the new year what new life would you bring into it? What are the new things that you expect to happen? For life goes on as usual with many. But the earth is ever-changing and the birth pangs are increasing.
Many do not see the changes that are happening around them. Many do not realize that the chaos that is happening around them is a sign of the times that you are living in. For while there have always been seasons upon the earth, you are entering into a season that will demonstrate many things in the heavens and upon the earth around you.
My Spirit has been whispering to many of you to get ready for these things. To some, I would come boldly to you about these things, and yet to others, your ears have become dull of hearing. For some of you have your favorite prophets that you would rather listen to. There have always been those in your midst. For even in the time of old that men who would claim to speak for Me would utter things that were not from my Spirit but that they would please men. For you would be better off reading a fairy tale from one of your favorite authors then.
You live in a time of great upheaval. For it is not just a time of great upheaval as seen in the earth around you, but it is also seen in many of the doctrinal issues that come upon around you. For some have interpreted wrongly in my word. These are those who preach another gospel. For some have said that I have already come back.
These are those who strive to set-up the kingdom upon earth. They shun the idea of this earth being done away with by fire and flame. These are those who would reign upon the earth as kings now. For they have set-up their videos and books, and they have their apostolic centers. They have their own agendas but it is not mine, says the Lord. They have built upon My Word with their own gospel. ”
