“Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,
” says the LORD of hosts.”
The Father is now breathing upon the embers of barely burning faith and the long, patient waiting of the faithful begins to catch and ignite. A global bonfire of love for Jesus and a cold hatred of sin is growing in the heart of the Bride. The ache of the Bride Groom for His Bride now becomes the ache of our hearts. She will be prepared. She will be made ready by the friends of the Bride Groom. The enemy of the Bride is jezebel; the devil’s bride, if you will. Actually, the devil in drag. A transgendered demonic fraud which has insinuated itself into the daily life of the church, undermining authority, seeking to control and stifle the flow and life of God’s Spirit in His Body.
The feminist movement was birthed from the Great Rebellion of Woodstock, August 1968. This demonic gathering in Bethel, NY was the great coming out party of jezebel and her consorts ashera and baal. Witchcraft, homosexuality, utter rebellion against authority of any kind. The fabric of our nation was ripped and burned just as so many American flags were. The sex industry, pornography, prostitution, abortion…free love…the sexual revolution…the age of Aquarius. I submit that demons freely traversed their own “Jacob’s ladder” gaining power and unprecedented influence in the heavenlies over our nation.
The divinely appointed structure of authority previously seen in families across America…crumbled and quickly became outdated in the face of the hip new emerging social norm; divorce. Years before, the industrial revolution set the stage for this collapse by the introduction of a counterfeit worship; one’s work ethic was their expression of worship. In the post WWII United Sates of America, WORK was king. A man showed his worth by proving his ability to work harder and longer than his fellow man. The quality of his lawn, shininess of his Made From American Steel car and the performance of his wife, children and dog named Spot all PROVED to the world that he was a God fearing, hard working AMERICAN MAN.
The children raised in these homes, were for the most part, ripe pickings for the counter culture hippie movement of the sixties. Behind the manicured lawns and pristine white picket fences, alcoholism was quickly setting its hooks deep into this brave new world. Wives, whose entire identity was tied to the cleanliness of their homes and their ability to cook well WHILE keeping the children out of trouble, soon became bored and worse yet; boring. Husbands began and ended affairs constantly, while the wives pretended not to see, the kids, ignored and lonely, didn’t know what they were seeing, and Spot just got older as dogs do. Television was born and flourished; the insidious message of rebellion against God was snuck in to America’s living rooms and dens with a chuckle and a wink, while entire families sat transfixed in the flickering light of the dawning Age of Media Technology.
Identity. Of men. Of women. Of children. The Identity of a nation once called America the Beautiful, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, was undermined and reformed from then until now, into…
The Divided Sates of America, A Violent, Apostate, Money Grubbing Fiefdom being devoured from within.
I recognize the great power present in our tongues and I must resolutely say that my beloved country, the U.S.A., is not the nation our forefathers envisioned. You may ask, “Will she ever be?” And I say to you,”Will we repent?” Are we a Nation under the One True God or a Nation under many gods? False gods who demand the sacrifice of millions of babies on the altar of convenience. Demons actually. If you are offended by my words, I beg your forgiveness and I ask you. Will you repent? Nationwide repentance begins with me and you. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back. Soon. His mercy compels Him to warn His people of His coming glory. Remember Ananias and Sapphira? The Apostle Peter rebuked them for lying to the Holy Spirit, told them they would die and they fell dead. They fell dead in church for lying to the Holy Spirit. That’s not an Old Testament account, beloved brothers and sisters. That occurred in the Book of Acts. WE ARE STILL IN THE BOOK OF ACTS. We say we want the Glory…are we ready? For months, now, the Lord has spoken one consistent message to my heart, where it BURNS unless I release it. GET READY.
Get ready for what?
His coming Glory. The weighty presence of God that causes the people around us to fear Him and us. Fear as in walk with reverent awe around those who are called Believers in Jesus Christ. The Name above all Names will be restored to it’s rightful place of honor. The Terrifying Goodness of God is seen clearly again and again in His Word, the Bible. When Jesus died and the earth shook, sky grew dark, veil was torn and the dead resurrected…the captain of the guard who put Jesus to death, exclaimed in terror, “Surely this was the Son of God!” When the seven sons of Sceva were beaten bloody and naked by a demon who had no knowledge of them as having been with Jesus( cause they weren’t) the result was that people poured out of their homes to have a giant bonfire of magical scrolls and paraphernalia. Money was no object. The people were afraid because their eyes were opened to the truth of their devil worshiping ways. Many were saved from miles around and the fellowship and authority of the believers grew. We just talked about Ananias and Sapphira; the result of their deaths was that the fear of God swept through the community and many were saved. A reverent awe of the Name of Jesus Christ and His followers.(Acts 5)
There are many accounts like this. Here’s an example, free of my paraphrase, of what it looks like when one is walking in the Glory:
“Saul, also known as Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he looked the sorcerer in the eye. Then he said, “You son of the devil, full of every sort of deceit and fraud, and enemy of all that is good! Will you never stop perverting the true ways of the Lord? Watch now, for the Lord has laid his hand of punishment upon you, and you will be struck blind. You will not see the sunlight for some time.” Instantly mist and darkness came over the man’s eyes, and he began groping around begging for someone to take his hand and lead him.
When the governor saw what had happened, he became a believer, for he was astonished at the teaching about the Lord.”
( Acts 13)
Here is another example, just a few verses after Ananias and Sapphira fell dead, lest any reading this become dismayed:
“The apostles were performing many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers were meeting regularly at the Temple in the area known as Solomon’s Colonnade. But no one else dared to join them, even though all the people had high regard for them. Yet more and more people believed and were brought to the Lord—crowds of both men and women. As a result of the apostles’ work, sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall across some of them as he went by. Crowds came from the villages around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those possessed by evil spirits, and they were all healed.
( Acts 5:12-16)
Finney, Wesley, Wigglesworth and others like them, shut down whole towns with their preaching. Why? The Glory of the Lord was upon them. The fear of God emptied jails, shut down bars, closed business’s and packed churches and outdoor meeting areas until they were overflowing. No more room. People were begging to be saved. The conviction of sin was upon them with such power that they could do nothing else but make it right with God. The priority of their whole lives became getting into right relationship with God. This is what the Glory does. People come trembling to the Glory. Those who are proud in their hearts, deceived because of willful rebellion to the word of God, will stumble into the Glory, lying, manipulating, schmoozing…and die. Just like they did then.
The Glory of Our King is not just for the warm fuzzy kissy fests so many of us have tried to make it. This trivialization of God’s Holiness is an attempt to justify sin filled lives of rebellion against Kingdom Authority. He IS LOVE of a kind and caliber that so far exceeds our ability to comprehend it, describe it, box it in and control it…that we are left with two options. Receive Him and His Word at face value or reject the love of the truth and be swept away by the strong delusion being poured out even now. Where is that strong delusion coming from?
God Himself is sending a strong delusion to those who reject the love of the truth and justify their enjoyment of unrighteousness. Lying signs and wonders even now accompany the coming of the lawless one. That spirit is active in the church right now. A false gospel of grace which endorses the sinful life of the believer, is being mixed with a very old demonic doctrine that ALL men are saved. Not just those who willingly submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, but ALL of humanity is saved.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
(2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)
In the Glory is ALL the Goodness of God, ALL His Holiness, ALL His Beauty, ALL His Majesty…everything that God is…we find in the presence of His Glory.
The Fear of the Lord and the Glory of God are inseparable.
The golden honey glow of love soaked, tear streaked, ecstasy flooded, explosive shouts of joyous laughter tumbling into reverent adoration and sweetly whispered pledges of undying devotion…eventually…if coupled with radical obedience, lead one into a place of such weighty Glory that to breath becomes an offense against one’s own senses. Absolute silence becomes the impossible mandate, for one cannot still the traitorous heart thundering wildly between them and the floor. Holy Terror. Breathe. The air is Holy. Swallow. The spit is Holy. The Voice that rushes through every fiber of your being, electrifying cells and transforming things along the way. No more awareness of the flesh at all. Just being with Him. Breathing Him in. Tasting the Life of the place where He is. Hearing sounds of such impossible beauty, angels and others ecstatic in adoration, sweeping fire through every part of everything you are intended to be. A Touch that awakens, resurrects and kills…forever and all at once.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. SO MUCH LOVE…
The church is a laughing stock of devils. Literally. One of the top two least respected, most reviled forms of human organization on the planet…the church. God is about to take Man’s filthy hands off of His Bride. The end of the world as we know it, is quietly and quite literally, just a few more of these >>> away. God, in His mercy is now releasing those He has been preparing in the Wilderness for right NOW. A great company of men, women and children, who have been taught of the Lord, in the barren wilderness of loneliness and deprivation…how to obey INSTANTLY. Those to whom dwelling in the Wilderness is now a choice made out of extravagant love. An Elijah Generation who will only speak and do as moved by the Spirit of Truth. The opinions of men have neither appeal nor importance. There is only One opinion that matters. These sons and daughters of the King are not known for their venomous rants against their fellow man, but are instead marked with the excellence of Divine Love. Fierce, unflinching, speak the truth no matter what…Love. Humility. Brokenness. Wisdom. Authority. Love. The King has marked them with his Glory for a time such as this.
Will you be His friend?
The friends of the Bride Groom; the voices of those crying in the wilderness, “REPENT! THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! MAKE STRAIGHT THE PATHS OF OUR GOD! RENOUNCE YOUR IDOLATRY OF THINGS FASHIONED BY THE HANDS OF MEN! THESE THINGS ARE PERISHING! EMBRACE THE FIRE OF HIS CORRECTION! BE PURIFIED IN HIS PRESENCE! RENOUNCE THE DEAD TRADITIONS OF A WEAK AND COMPROMISING BELIEF SYSTEM!
Thus Says the Lord God, the One True King of Eternity…I AM ALIVE!!!!! I AM THE LIVING GOD!!!! I AM THE ONE TRUE GOD WHO LOVES YOU!!!! REPENT AND BREAK BREAD WITH ME!!!! REPENT AND DRINK DEEPLY OF MY LOVE!!!! YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING. I CREATED YOU FOR MYSELF. LEAVE YOUR OTHER LOVERS. COME BACK TO ME. I WILL GIVE YOU REST FOR YOUR SOULS. DON’T BE AFRAID OF THOSE WHO CAN DO HARM TO YOUR BODY. I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DESTROY SOUL AND BODY FOREVER. I have loved you with an everlasting love. Return to me. Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light. The time is short. Don’t waste another moment running from My love. I AM COMING BACK SOON. The days of peace on earth are few. Don’t be caught outside the protection of my embrace. I love you.
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
( Revelation 3:14-22)
