In June 2014 I had this dream. I was in a big outdoor event in America, and I was sitting in stadium seating near the top. There was a canal type of water behind me that did have some boat traffic on it. People were there because of Vladimir Putin who was on a stage to the far far right of the section that I was in and out of my eyesight. People were there against their will and they were being forced to bring their young daughters up before him. The people were afraid that he was going to take the girls, but still had to go before him. I was with a girl and walked her down the aisle and out the left side of the field. No one saw us leave.
I mentioned a while ago that I was writing a book about the demonic spirits that are infiltrating America from the East. The girls represent the Church here and the canal the Pure Stream of God’s True Ministries. We are here at this point in America. I write all of this to say this. IT CAN AND WILL BE STOPPED WHEN THE BRIDE CHANGES WHO SHE IS. You cannot live a life of worldly sin and have any impact on the demonic. satan will not cast out satan. What you allow and subject yourself to will either cause you to flourish or destroy you. God has NOT changed His mind about what Sin is. It opens gateways to the enemy. You are called to RULE and REIGN. Many have thrown their crown out to enjoy the fruit of the world.
A few months ago, I was talking to a friend about my lack of desire to create a school. I desire to be an original and not a copy. However, God is doing specific movements near, far, and wide that are vital to the Body right now. Finding a place that I am passionate about for the Lord is what I am seeking before the Throne. As I was walking into another room, God suddenly was speaking to me about the school that He wants to co-create. When He gave me the name of the school, I said well that is something no one else is doing, so tell me more. God brought me back to this dream to give me the foundation of what He requires in this Hour.
I encourage you to sit before the Lord today and go over all of your problems from the last 10 years. Be honest before Jesus. How many of those problems were a direct result of your own sin or your sinful reaction to a wrong done to you? Sin is something that must be dealt with daily and at the very least, weekly. I say this often to people. “Keep your hands clean in your dealings.” Yes, you will fail and have to come back to God to be changed on His Potter Wheel. No one has arrived to perfection and you won’t this side of Heaven. BUT, you must still heal the soul wounds you caused, others caused, and generational wounds passed down to you.
WHAT YOU ARE IN A HABIT TO DO, IS WHAT SHAPES AND MOLDS YOU.
The more desire you have to be Changed by God, into the Image of His Son, the more you will be Changed from Glory to Glory. The areas you will not give God will not be changed. It is that simple. Oh, He will shake you to the ground in order to get your attention, but you can still choose to be rebellious and disobedient with consequences in tow.
THE ENEMY IS LOOKING DAY AND NIGHT TO GET A FOOTHOLD IN YOUR LIFE!
God is really adamant about what I am about to say.
JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF DANIEL, HIS TRUE PEOPLE WILL BE SPARED IN THE LION’S DEN NO MATTER WHAT COMES AGAINST THEM.
Fear is never from God. It is always from the devil. Ask yourself why the devil wants to put fear in you today? There is ALWAYS a POWERFUL reason and a moment to PUSH THROUGH AND OVERCOME the snare.
If you don’t know who you really are in Christ, then you will fail in this walk. Too many walk in Christian clichés but it has no real Demonstrational Power because the person does not really believe the words they speak to their core.
It is time to seriously look at how we go about our lives so that we can be confident that the Lord will be our Rear Guard in any matter before us. The same Power that Raised Jesus from the Grave lives inside of you. Really allow this to soak into every part of who you are.
6 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 We know that our old self[a] was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For one who has died has been set free[b] from sin. 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. 10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
15 What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves,[c] you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
8 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.[a] 2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you[b] free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin,[c] he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus[d] from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
12 So then, brothers,[e] we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons[f] of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
God is not looking for a people complacent and just wanting an escape out of hardship. You are on the WINNING SIDE, but you personally can suffer greatly when you do not follow God but instead let sin wrap your life in a knot and bind you to the floor. Many avoid the Bible because they do not want to be convicted about their sin or exposed to the fact that they are Christian in name only. You can’t hold your idols in your heart and expect God to live there too. HE WILL NOT!
The Days of a “Normal” World are not coming back. Something even I had to face. What you will not rise up against, will overtake you. Churches die when the people allow their true light to die. Someone wrote me about two years ago saying that God wants Unity in the Church. I replied, right now He is actively pruning who is Not His True Church.” You cannot have Unity until those who are not His are cut away. This is where false doctrines breed like wildfire. Churches will close but this is a better sign that what they carried will no longer influence God’s Message and Truth. We are not going to co-exist with those teaching false doctrines. You can love them, but do not allow their poison to fill your ears. You will eventually be tainted as well.
God is rising up Mighty Plumblines in this Hour. Those that carry His Pure Truth and are not compromised. They will Rise up and Stand Tall Before the Lord. This does not mean we have to in-fight with other Christians. Hear me. You must study and show yourself approved. Meaning you look at how others interpret the Bible in-depth and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you fully. Remove your own agenda. This is not a quick process. It takes daily dedication to ask God to show you where you have believed lies in the Bible AND in the World. Believing any lie of man, even when it seems to have no bearing on the Bible, is still extremely important to be set free of. The enemy will bind you any way he can and deception is his favorite game. Blind is Blind, and Christians are not called to be Blind in any respect.
You are HERE, right now in this Time and Space because YOU CARRY A VITAL PIECE TO GOD’S ARMY and What the WORLD NEEDS. Do not take this lightly and think, someone else will do it. You will not only miss out on what God is doing, but you also will have no power to stop the enemy in your life. THE BRIDE HAS NOT COMPLETED HER MISSION. Get up, Dust yourself off, and Follow God’s lead. Many will need a deep personal healing before they can move forward. It is vital to realize the importance of healing soul wounds and not walking around with easy to attack areas in our lives. Grace is the Power that Heals you and not to just say OOPS I made a mistake again. Before Mary could carry Jesus, she had to be completely healed of every wound on her soul. You cannot fight a world that you are in common with. You are not of this world, so no longer wear it around you like a fine tattered robe. What you ingest daily, through your gateways, will infect you.
46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies and exalts the Lord, 47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. 48 “For He has looked [with loving care] on the humble state of His maidservant; For behold, from now on all generations will count me blessed and happy and favored by God! 49 “For He who is mighty has done great things for me; And holy is His name [to be worshiped in His purity, majesty, and glory]. 50 “And His mercy is upon generation after generation Toward those who [stand in great awe of God and] fear Him. 51 “He has done mighty deeds with His [powerful] arm; He has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart. 52 “He has brought down rulers from their thrones, And exalted those who were humble. 53 “He has filled the hungry with good things; And sent the rich away empty-handed. 54 “He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy, 55 Just as He promised to our fathers, To Abraham and to his descendants forever.”
Notice she specifically talks about her SOUL. Your soul will reflect what is in it. If it is full of sin, it will wrestle against God and be tempted by Sin. She mentions that He is her Savior. Understanding that she knew she needed to be saved from her sin. Then she compares and contrasts those walking uprightly to those who do not. She also talks about how it affects Generations. You being healed affects Generations. You will not pass what is not in you.
God is waiting for your response. Now is your moment to be in full right alignment with the Lord and King!
