“Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy,” James 5:10-12.
“I decree that good things will be happening for My people.
I decree that many of the long trials will cause the grapes and the fruit to be seen. For your trials will reap your rewards.
There have been long years of waiting and wondering. For these trials will produce a deep character in you.
For you will grow as tall as an old oak tree. For you must grow tall and not be weak.
For without growing tall and being strong, you will be susceptible to the winds that blow and come upon this earth. For in the coming months great winds of change will be coming upon the earth.
Turmoil will be seen in many different ways. But if your roots go down deep within My soil then you will not be shaken.
New programs both politically and in other ways, will not save you from the things that are coming. Hoarding money and saving it for a rainy day will not save you.
Going to Church every Sunday will not save you. Paying all your tithes and offerings will not save you from these things that are coming.
I AM coming back for a people who are willing to give up everything for Me.
I AM coming back for a people who have become as nothing. I don’t care how great your ministry is.
I don’t care how many spiritual gifts you have. I don’t care if you have given everything
to the poor. I AM simply coming back for a people who know Me.
I want you to know me intimately. Then you will weather the storms that are coming.”
