Who Is Sitting as God in the Temple?
It Is Time to Reject the Spirit of Fear and Be Bold!
“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:2-4.
The LORD spoke to me.
The LORD has been speaking to me about the spirit of Antichrist and the above scripture.
He started out saying… “Who is sitting in the temple?”
I said what do you mean LORD? He began to show me something about the Temple first. He asked, “Where is the temple now?” And gave me this scripture…
“Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God’s temple (His sanctuary), and that God’s Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, collectively as a church and also individually]?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 AMPC.
Then He began to show me something that surprised me and yet it didn’t!
He said, “The spirit of fear has been trying to take residence in My Temple, which ushers in the spirit of Antichrist!”
He said, ”My People have been being lied to by the spirit of fear and now they are simply acting unaware of that stronghold that has taken residence in their mind! It has gripped many in My Church.
They have been conditioned by it to react, even subconsciously, therefore they have made fear their god instead of My Spirit, and the spirit of Antichrist is ruling in some of My Houses of Worship and is setting himself to be god in the Temple of God, whose Temple, you are!
This is conditioning them to be marked by this spirit, and what they do not understand is their choices to either listen to me and resist these unlawful orders will determine their future in My Kingdom!
I AM looking for Faith! Did I not ask, ‘When I come, will I find faith on the earth?’ (Luke 18:8)?
Yes, Faith is the language of heaven and gives power for My Kingdom to invade the earth, but fear set up in The Temple of God gives power to the Antichrist spirit that is now working in the sons and daughters of disobedience!
In order to stop the onslaught of the outpouring of evil that is in the earth now, this spirit of fear must be met by faith and boldness!
I AM looking for a Gideon’s Army and I AM looking for an Esther and a Rahab! I AM looking for Samson and David and Moses in your day, and I AM now in the process of provoking your sons and daughters as I did David by the giant’s taunts, to step out of their comfort zones and declare: ‘Is there not a cause?’”
Watch in the Days Ahead
“Watch in the days ahead, how I will begin to use your children and grandchildren to confront the enemy for he has overstepped his bounds when he came out of hiding!
And the thing that you were afraid to confront, I will now give them a desire to run into the battle for!
These will be those who have not been conditioned by the spirit of fear, but will now begin to proclaim, “Give me my mountain!”
And many who gave into this fear, will only see them enter their promised land with their eyes, but they will be locked out, because without Faith, it is impossible to please Me!
So I say to you today, ‘Turn from this spirit of Antichrist that has tried to make residence in your temple (your mind) for it has been your god and not Me! And cast down the spirit of fear that brings torment!
Be free! And then you will see My Spirit begin to quicken your mortal body to resist the enemy and he will flee from your midst and you too will cross over into the great day of The LORD and the Glory that you have waited for that will cover the face of the earth!
This Glory will be awaiting those who resist this spirit and it will be said of you that, ‘these are they who turned the world upside down for The Glory of God and I will restore the years that the locust have eaten! In your land you will see the fruit of the land will once again be good and plentiful!
I AM about to give this land back to those who overcome this spirit and turn from following fear and begin to trust again in My Love and Goodness!
There are days of glory for those who trust in Me, but for those who trust in fear and the spirit of Antichrist it will not go well…
So trust, believe in all that I AM and you will soon see the battle turn at the gates of your Nations!”
