This, originally from nine years ago, even more true now, but nevertheless still encouraging. Updated a little bit too!
Never before in human history have The Winds of Change blown so fiercely across our landscape.
It’s all part of a greater Spiritual War that’s happening right now. Unseen by us — but not unknown or ignored — there is a warfare being waged in the heavenlies.
We can join in the battle or we can ignore it. There is so much deception around at the moment that we must choose The Wind of Change to follow with infinite care and God-given Wisdom.
It all begs a question or two, which Wind are you going with?
Are you sure it is The Ruach of God you are following, or is it a very clever and deceptive counterfeit wind blowing up from the depths of hell?
As I pondered this, I heard The Voice of The LORD, “The Winds of Change are blowing over and through My Church.
You shall recognise My Wind by My Signature of Love. You shall just as easily recognise the wind of your enemy by the offence and vitriol any disagreement will cause.
Does not My Word say that ‘by their love you shall know them’?
Well, it shall be by My Love that you shall recognise The Wind of Change to follow.
Stand firm, yet beware, and do not follow the wrong path. My path shall be costly but you will know my peace.
Keep your armour on (Ephesians 6), your defences up, and use the gift of discernment wisely. It will serve you well as you navigate the stormy waters and dangerous wind-lashed shores of the coming days.
Behold,” says The LORD, “I AM coming soon! Tell everyone that I AM coming.
Surely,” says God, “the time is short and the hour of My coming is close.”
I am very aware that this is “yet another” warning of Jesus imminent return, but I just feel I must join the chorus of those watching and warning from the walls.
Today, tomorrow, who knows when other than our heavenly Father?
Keep pressing in, keep pressing in, hold firm to your faith, keep standing. Do not believe all the gloom and doom that is media propaganda.
Watch for and listen to the prophets and intercessors. Pray in the Spirit at all times but do not forsake decrees and declarations.
As was said to Job, “Declare a thing and it shall be established for you,” Job 22:28
The weapons of our warfare are spiritual.
Jesus gave us the Authority — use it!
