Wheat and Tares

The Academy of Light

There are many voices in the world and in the church, fake news and fake voices in the world and the church.


On the 18th December 2017 I awoke at 1:30 a.m. and was instantly wide awake.

I got up to see if the LORD wanted to say something to me.  Instantly this Prophetic Word of the LORD flowed through my pen to my journal.

It is said of King David.

“To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer,”   Psalms 45:1.

The following is the transcript.

“Today if you hear My Voice open your ears and I will speak to you of things which you know not.

Time is short and the world sleeps.  The Church should know better, but she too sleeps.

Very few are awake to the time and the important season that is now upon them.

Preparations for war are underwaySoon the nations will come against Israel.

They will fail in their purpose, however Israel will take many casualties.

I will intervene when it seems hopeless.  Be alert for when they say “Peace! Peace!” treachery is in the air.

Time is short prepare for harvest.  I will pour My Spirit out across the whole earth and My Army will march against the great evil, prepare My People.

Your sons and daughters will rise up.  Get them ready!  Time is short and I will do a quick work.

Prepare and train them.  Get them ready. 

There are many voices in the world and in the Church, fake news and fake voices in the world and the Church.

The frogs are croaking incessantly.  However the truth will prevail.  I will cover the earth with My Truth as the waters cover the sea and the truth will set many free.

I will speak to the Church and the nations through earthquakes and weather that has never been seen before.

A great shaking is coming.  The earth will rebel against the great evil in it.

I will speak in the tornadoes and in meteorites hurling into the earth’s atmosphere.  This is a time now when you must arise and shine in the midst of the darkness.

Floods in Europe will escalate in both frequency and ferocity.

You have seen the mass movement of refugees across the earth. 

Soon a great persecution will arise against My People Israel, who are scattered across the earth.  Prepare for this.

A company of Josephs will now begin to arise and who will save many lives.  My Voice will be heard across the Earth through the favour that I will bestow upon them.

This persecution will be worldwide and will be very severe.  Sound an alarm!  Prepare the people who will listen.

My judgments will be in the earth which will turn many to righteousness.

My judgments will be redemptive and will be a means for the coming harvest.

Hopelessness will stalk the earth and will open the way for the truth to prevail.

Hollywood, your cup is full.  I will devastate your evil and destroy your agendas.

Same sex marriage, your cup is full, as the nations have chosen.

I will come on the scene and millions will repent and will be saved.  My Ways are not your ways, My Heart is to redeem and that I will do.

A separation has started between the goat and sheep nations and also between the goat and sheep Churches.

I will again drive the money changers out of the Church no more will I allow this to continue.

Those Churches who will not stand with Israel, I will eliminate and a curse will be upon them.

I will begin to move upon a lost generation of children and young people.  You must train them and they will fight against the darkness.

Give them a righteous cause to fight for the truth!

The great lie of evolution of the species will begin to dissolve and be exposed as a lie perpetrated upon the world.  Exposure will come as this sophisticated deception will be brought to the light.

Truth shall cover the whole Earth, then the end will come.

I the LORD will appear among the Islamic nations.  I have not forgotten Ishmael.

Millions will come to the LORD which will cause the nations of the world to marvel.

Light and darkness will clash, which will be felt across the universe and great signs in the universe will astound many.

Remember, all the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of just one candle, the light will quench the darkness.

2018 will see the beginning of a plan to move towards a “World Church” comprised of all religions.  The Vatican will be a prime mover in this.

This will eventually divide the Catholic Church, resulting in many forsaking the Catholic Church and many being born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit.

This push towards a World Church is part of the push towards a One World Government.  However some nations will resist this and I will bless those nations.”

As I began to ponder this word that the LORD gave me, I began to see the beginning of a great work of God to remove the chaff from the wheat.

“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.  But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field?  from whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.  The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn,”
   Matthew 13:25-30.

The removal of the tares from the wheat has to happen before the harvest is brought in and it will begin this year.

We have seen throughout Church history that before any real move of God begins, false doctrines begin to sweep through the Church.

The purpose of this is to counter the true word of God.  This work of satan always seeks to counter two main things, that of holiness and self-denial, offering an easy way other than taking up the cross and denying one’s self to follow the LORD.

I have been so surprised and alarmed at how much the “Hyper Grace” doctrine has been accepted by many Churches.  This doctrine is a doctrine of demons which satan has so easily sown these tares among the wheat.

Harvest time is fast approaching but first the tares will need to be removed.  This will involve judgement upon the lukewarm church where the tares have taken hold.  The Church will be purged of all of the leaven.

Now we must start to think seriously how we will accommodate the great harvest that will be reaped over the next few years.

Great and powerful evangelists will be raised up and sweep millions into the true Church of Jesus Christ.

However, the Church must be ready to train these new Christians teaching them how to come to maturity quickly.

This raising up of this end-time army will become the prime function of the true Church in these last days.

This year will see the true Apostolic Ministry begin to emerge, these are the master builders who see the big picture and will have the anointing to lay out the plan of God for these end-times.

“There is a difference between the seven gifts of the spirit and the fivefold ministry gifts of the Apostle, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers.
Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men (or gifts of men).  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ,”   Ephesians 4:8-13.

We need to distinguish the difference between the gifts of the Spirit and ministry gifts.

The word gifts in Ephesians 4:8 is the Greek word Doma; here the gift is a person, whereas the seven are gifts of the spirit.  They are charisma gifts.

But the gifts of the five-fold ministry are people, the gift is a person.  Christ the prophet in them or Christ the teacher in them etc..

Now we all may prophesy, that is a charisma gift of the Holy Spirit.  But that does not necessarily make us a prophet, and just because a person has on their business card their name as a Prophet or Apostle, does not mean they are one.

There have always been Ministry gifts at various times throughout Church history but they were rare and mostly not recognised as such.

The ministry of the teacher and the prophet began to emerge during the charismatic move of the 1970s in a more advanced way.

We will now begin to see the emergence of the true apostles as a part of this end time season.

These apostles will bring a clearer understanding of God’s purposes for the bride as related to the unending purposes of God.

They will be able to clearly lay out the the blueprint for this end time Church.  These apostles, along with the prophets, will begin to move in the powers of the age to come and will train others to move in the same.

“And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,”   Hebrews 6:5.

We must seek to be connected to God’s agendas not our own.  We must seek first and foremost the Kingdom of God. To do this we need insight, foresight, and wisdom.

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding,”   Proverbs 4:7.

Acceleration is a phenomenon of our times.

Scientist have now proven that even the speed of light is getting faster.

Amos 9:13 speaks of the ploughman overtaking the reaper.  This is an end-time reality that the Bible clearly speaks about.

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the ploughman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt,”   Amos 9:13.

This is a very wonderful and scary phenomena.  Everything we now sow will return at an accelerated rate.  This is something we have not seen before.

“For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind,”   Hosea 8:7.

“He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.  He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor,”   Proverbs 22:8-9.

“Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.  Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be,”   Ecclesiastes 11:1-2.

“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you,”   Hosea 10:12.

This coming to rain righteousness upon us is connected to our sowing.  The Bible talks about words as being seeds which we sow, which will in turn produce a harvest of like kind.

However, the turnaround process is now in acceleration.  What we speak or sow will return very very quickly back to us for either good or evil.

King David said this:

“Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips,”   Psalms 141:3.

We must not take this phenomena lightly, it will be a major factor in how our future will be shaped.

As we continue to move towards the end of the age the reaping will eventually become almost instant.

Life and death will be in the power of our tongue.  As the great harvest gets underway this acceleration will control our lives in a new and very real way.

A New Evangelistic Mantle

As this new era begins to get underway, many Christians will be taken home.  They have run their race and kept the faith.

They leave behind a legacy and their works do follow them.  We often see death as a tragedy, and it is for those who do not know the LORD.

However, for those who know the LORD they are just returning home.

Billy Graham will make the journey home in this season, leaving behind a mantle that many will pick up.

His mantle will be joined with the mantle that TL Osborn left behind, and this dual mantle will manifest as one evangelistic mantle that has never been seen in the earth before.

With the integrity that Billy Graham had and the mighty signs and wonders that TL Osborn moved in, those who move in this dual mantle will reap an enormous harvest.

“While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation,”   Hebrews 3:15.

As the tares are separated from the wheat a new and powerful church will arise with great compassion, love, and kindness, demonstrating in reality who and what God is like, AND GOD IS LOVE.

This end-time church will truly be the body of Christ in demonstration, bringing life truth and the love of God to a confused and fearful world.

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.  But put ye on the LORD Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh,”   Romans 13:11-14.

Wheat and Tares — 2 Comments

  1. Hi my name is Donny Chartrand from Canada and i just want to say that i really enjoy listening to Neville and Sadhu and their ministry and it lifts my spirit when i do and not to complain becuase i know there are brothers and sisters in Christ that have gone through or are going through heavy attacks from the enemy just as we have and are. The last ten years the enemy has robbed and stolen much from my wife and i and the worst was the loss of our son and in my weakness i let him get away with it and tried to do things on my own and of course kept ending up flat on my face and God would come and pick me back up again i really struggle in the flesh and and if you could remember us in your prayers as i really want a deeper realationship with our God and Saviour Jesus Christ. We dont attend church anymore because of so much division and strife was in the one we attended years ago but i have kept my faith with great struggle and only by the grace of God. please send me any new prophecies or keep me updated on your ministry as prophecy really interests me.
