Ezekiel 38:6


“Putin has proven that he has the capability to rule the world. That is evident by what he has accomplished. Since taking power in 2000, he has brought Russia back from the brink of disaster. Now the USA is at war with Russia both on the ground and in the media. There is all this talk in NATO about full-scale war and a whole lot of very dangerous-for-Europe chatter. Turkey sided with Russia in not allowing those Nordic nations to join NATO…(Excerpt from “The War to Win Gomer”)

Seize the Keys


“This is what the Keys were given to you for, so use them more and more. You cannot win this battle in the flesh; it is too dark and too strong. You have to release more of us to fight by your side. There cannot be a victory for the enemy. There has to be a victory for the children of God, and only the Keys have the power to do that. It is given to the Keys to win the victory. The Keys have the power to overcome the enemy in this battle of the End. It is like you are fighting in darkness, a total blackout, and the Keys are the only source of light now. Remember; My  Word and the Keys and I are one. We three are One, so by using the Keys, you are using the power of the universe.”

“30 Years” submitted by Sam

And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years.” Genesis 15:13; And yet, in Exodus 12:40, 41 we find out that the Israelites spent four hundred and thirty years in bondage and not four hundred years. “Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Furthermore, Stephen in his last speech to the Jews quotes Genesis 15:13; “And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.” Acts 7:6 And yet Paul confirms in his letter to the Galatians that the Jews spent an extra thirty years in Egypt. “And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.” Galatians 3:17

The Talmud teaches us that 80% of the Jews never left Egypt to join the Exodus. I wonder how many of those 80% didn’t leave because of that 30-year discrepancy. Perhaps they became disillusioned with the fact that the word spoken to Abram by God regarding the four hundred years didn’t come through at the time appointed but got prolonged by thirty years. They probably felt as disappointed as Jonah after preaching to Nineveh: “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown”…and then seeing his prophesying not fulfilled at the time appointed. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,  upon whom the ends of the world are come.” 1 Corinthians 10:11

Last year the Lord did something in my life that I thought it was unfair and much like Job did, I also argued with Him trying to prove my point. While still in that mood, I was talking to some friends about what happened, and  as sometimes happens to you while witnessing, you say something but you know that “It is not you that speaks, but the spirit of your Father speaking in you.”( Matthew 10:20) I had that exact same experience, telling them at one point that the Lord expects us to show Him our unconditional love and trust Him in spite of not understanding what He’s doing in our lives, much the same way that He’s been showing us His unconditional love all along. I was so surprised hearing myself say that as I never thought about it that way. So I had to stop and ponder what  I had just said, and I realized that it was actually the key to unlocking the door for me to be able to come out of that negative mood towards Him.”


Prophecy:

“Come; the time of his revelation draws closer. Come and listen to the whispers of your father. There is a time and season for everything under the sun, and as the dial reaches its point of release, I will reveal My secrets unto My servants the prophets. 1994 + 30 years = 2024. For these are the years of testing of not only the Children of Israel of old but also My Endtime Children of Israel, Abraham’s children of faith. To those that will receive it, these are the appointed number of years given to test the faith of those on whose shoulders the mantle of David has rested. David’s days were numbered. And just as the hairs on your head are numbered and the days of your life are numbered, so are the days of the End numbered. As the Key numbers find their mates, the tumblers fall into place and the Final Key moves closer to the barrier that separates the old world from the new world. If you so desire, these secrets are given freely. Whether or not your desire is to know the deep things of the spirit, the Final Key has been activated, so the End will come regardless, And as has been the case from century to century, material man will be swept along in the current of events as they unfold during this last period of man’s rule.”…MB

“Even so am I with you & even so I shall speak in thy heart the secrets & reveal unto you the things which are to come. For I will do this thing but I will show it unto My holy Prophets. As Daniel of old, I am with you & shall reveal unto you the number of years & even the number of days of the things which are to come.(Prophecies of David)

USED MASTER KEY

DREAM OF GOD’S THUNDERING…PART 4

The Master Key and The Covenant

Prophecy, Jesus speaking: 

“The Key of David is the master key, and by exercising faith in the Words of David, you are in essence applying the master key to the lock of the key ring that holds the multitudinous and mysterious Keys to My Kingdom. Those that hold the Key of David hold the Key to My palace, My city and My Kingdom. The Covenant of Daniel 9:27 has, like many of My promises, a double meaning. Verse 22 is a promise to the children of David/Daniel. It is the portal to verse 27. Can you see the connection here? I have waited for this time to open the portal to those that hold the Key of David. To those that believe by faith in the Word given to My Endtime prophet will I open the secrets and mysteries of My Kingdom. The time of testing and trying in the fire is almost over. It is time for Me, the Key Master, to pick up My sword and meet the enemy head to head.

Now do you understand? Now do you see why I have called you to such dedication? You are My sword. You are My weapon against evil, and as long as you were dormant, I could not fight to My full capacity. But now that you have awakened and come alive again. You have become a powerful tool in My hand, which the Devil cannot stand against. There is no wile that you cannot overcome with this power. I have taken up My most powerful weapon, and you are part of it. Released to Me was the power to awaken your souls and to restore the power to My sword. So you now stand with Me in humility as I begin to flow through you and show you how to use My power. You are as an army which has been raised from the dead.

As the world enters 2023, it will not be you out there. It will be Me in you working the needed miracles.  My Word that you have stored in your hearts all these years will come to life. Thank you for believing without seeing…Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. Yes, My power in you lies in listening and obeying My still small voice. The fire and brimstone, the mighty miracles, the thunderings are Me passing by. They are Me going to war on behalf of My children, but it is in your obedience to My Word that opens the way for Me to do what you cannot do. Only those that trust in My Word alone can I use as My sword in the days ahead. To these are given the promises. These that hold the Master Key of David will walk with the full power of Heaven into the storm.” (end of prophecy)

(Jesus speaking:) As things start to happen, the power, anointing, and miracles will be there. I promised I would not leave you comfortless. Do you think that during the darkest days on Earth I would leave you, My leaders of the people, the standard-bearers, the Endtime warriors, the examples, the voices crying in the wilderness, the fighters until the End, the shepherds, the martyrs, the exposers of evil, the champions, the righters of wrong, the heroes of faith, the soul winners, the captive-freers, the reapers, the protectors, the gatherers of the lost, the freedom fighters, My brides, without all that you need? Do you think I would leave you without the protection and provision that you need to do the job?

That protection and provision is in the keys I have given; access the codes and you will have it. But you say, “How do I access the codes?” The answer is simple: Ask and you will receive. And in some cases, as things get worse, you will not even need to ask, for the miracles you need will happen right before your eyes. All you need to do is go forward, embracing the mindset that there are no impossibilities to you.

Listen to My whispers and obey, and I will do the rest. I will make the way, I will open the doors, I will do the healing, I will raise the dead, I will send fire out of your mouth, I will release you from your captors and the list goes on! There are no impossibilities, for you have the power. Your part is to seek Me desperately, to be open and flexible and fully yielded to My will, and to hear from Me. When you have clearly established My will, then all you have to do is obey, and I will do the rest. When you have been faithful to fulfill the instructions I have given you, you will be able to rest assured that whatever happens is My doing and I will cause it to glorify Me.

The access code is listening and obeying. Do as I say. You will hear your instructions as you spend time with Me in the bed of love, as we lie in each other’s arms, experiencing great passion and love; when I whisper in your ear as we walk together in the cool of the evening in the garden of your heart, when you rise up early and you lift your eyes unto the hills, when you lie upon your bed and are still and commune with Me, when you call to remembrance My song in your heart in the night seasons, when you hear the rushing of the wild wind, when My lovingkindness is upon you in the day, or if you are in the heat of battle, when you fall upon Me in desperation. These are the times I will give you your instructions. Then all you need to do is obey, to go forward, doing what I have told you.

“And it shall come to pass in the Last Days, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of My return. And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Today, these words are fulfilled in you, and shall come to pass.

These dreams, visions and prophecies you will receive, are not to be taken lightly, as if they were a figment of your imagination. When you feel you are receiving instruction from Me from a means other than the printed word which I have given, you should pray desperately and ask Me for confirmations, as well as seek the counsel of others and further signs from the other ways to know My will. Be sensitive to My Spirit, knowing that your instructions may come in the most unexpected ways.

You have been exercised in the gift of hearing from Me for years now. You’ve honed your gift, and now you’ll be glad you did. Can’t you see how it’s all working together so you can use the keys and access the power?

In My life on Earth, My faith was tested, and I had to prove it by putting it into action, exercising it, acting on it. You have faith that I speak to you. Now prove it. Test it by acting on it, even if it seems impossible. For now you have the power. I’ve given it to you to be able to do your job. So go for it! Do it! Expect miracles!                                                                                                            

I have much to pour out to you, My loves, My yielded channels. The only thing that limits My pouring out is your ability to receive. I speak plainly now, for the time to understand My mysteries is at hand. I have opened the books and now is the time for you to receive and to prepare. For the Evil One is angry, because he knows that his time is short. But it is given unto you, My beloved brides, to know the future, so that you will not be caught unaware and thus be snared in his traps. (End of excerpt)

(More on the Keys! What the Future Holds, Part 4 [#3357])

Chapter 16

Matthew 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. [So typical of church leaders and their followers, and it would seem us to, in a way. We so often seek after a sign or confirmation that what we read in scripture or hear in the spirit is from Him. Perhaps that’s another reason why Jesus called us a Gideon’s band.]

:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? [I wonder how many Christians out there are actually synchronizing the events we are seeing now with the coming of Great Tribulation and Jesus.]

:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. [Did you realize that this chapter is the Keys of the Kingdom chapter? This chapter reads almost like a blueprint of events that happen before the coming of the false messiah and then the genuine Messiah: a great falling away, a faithless generation that has to see to believe, and the Keys of the Kingdom given. Even if we are not so full of faith, someone has to approach the doors of Heaven and insert the Master Key of David. So I guess that does take faith of some kind.]

 

:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. [This could typify the entering in of the gate to the wilderness of Revelation 12.]

:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.

:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?

:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? [No worries everyone; if you are worried about how He is going to supply for His children during the Great Tribulation, then simply cast your minds back to the many times He’s supplied for us throughout our lives as missionaries. Be comforted in that.]

:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. [And what is the doctrine the church is preaching in regards to this period we are now about to enter? The Laodicean church of the End is polluted with leaven, but the main thing I think is the doctrine that the 3rd Temple needs to be built and the lamb sacrifice take place before the last 7 years can get underway. That we know is a Scofield doctrine, which so many denominations follow. They not only follow this doctrine but they practice it too, with all their church building.]

:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [Now here is an amazing thing…Peter of Maria was also a main instigator in giving us, David’s children, the Keys of the Kingdom. He passed down all that was received by WS prophets, along with so many details and insight and how to’s.]

19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. [I was reminded of the Reboot when I read this verse. And the rest of the chapter gives us our marching orders, our post-reboot instructions.]

:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. [And of course this sounds like the rapture. Some of us here today will not see death until we see Jesus coming in the clouds of heaven in all His power and glory.]

 

I sleep, but my heart waketh.” — Song of Solomon 5:2… Even wise virgins sometimes slumber, but it is high time for all to shake off the bands of sloth. It is to be feared that many believers lose their strength as Samson lost his locks, while sleeping on the lap of carnal security. With a perishing world around us, to sleep is cruel; with eternity so near at hand, it is madness. Yet we are none of us so much awake as we should be; a few thunder-claps would do us all good, and it may be, unless we soon bestir ourselves, we shall have them in the form of war, or pestilence, or personal bereavements and losses. O that we may leave for ever the couch of fleshly ease, and go forth with flaming torches to meet the coming Bridegroom! My heart waketh. This is a happy sign. Jesus will hear our hearts, will help our hearts, will visit our hearts; for the voice of the wakeful heart is really the voice of our Beloved, saying, “Open to me.” Holy zeal will surely unbar the door.” (Spurgeon [Member of the Warrior Band] Morning and Evening- 24th Sept. Evening)

Excerpts from “The Key of 22” August 15, 2022 “The number 22 is an important Key to the future. It is a unique number. It is My number, and although the enemy would use it for his own purpose, he cannot gain access to this Key. He is permitted to make his own copy, a duplicate key –you might say, but it is not the real thing, and like all his counterfeits, when put to the test, they break, misfire or simply don’t work.

There are many locks and many keys that must be utilized to open the way forward. You might look upon the opening of these locks as events that must take place before the world can move on up the tunnel of My will. Each event or key can only fall in place when the previous one has been accomplished; much like how a time-sequence lock operates. The enemy is always trying to interfere with the order of events by attempting to, as the Bible says, “change times and seasons”. He loves to fiddle with the timing, he’s always seeking to delay the final day.

I have set the stars and the planets in their order. I have created all things and have put all things in their place and under My feet. There is a time and season for everything. As much as the Devil tries to hinder and delay “the here and now”, he cannot change the future. Only I can do that! Yes, he is permitted to delay and confuse and work within the realm of man’s decision-making process, his free will and majesty of choice, but he is not permitted to change what has been set as immovable by Me. You might call this immovable rock, “My will”.

The number 22 is part of your DNA. It is also throughout the Bible. You have lightly touched on these facts during your studies, but I tell you, this number combination goes deep into the very fabric of My creation. One day, My loves, I will show you how deep, how wonderful, and how intricately I’ve weaved this tapestry called time, space, flesh and spirit, These properties that you are aware of are only a few, a small part of that which makes up My creation. There are many others that I have not yet permitted to be discovered, but in time all will be revealed. Mankind has closed that door for now due to his choices; but I am patient and understand that maturity takes time and usually comes through experience. Simple, foolish, immature material man has been distracted by the things of his material world. His eyes to the spirit have been closed, as if by scales. However my spiritual brides see the Keys. They see the combinations, and are beginning to discover the paths that lead into My spirit, which are indeed wondrous to behold.  

I have set 2022 as a pivotal year; it is the portal to the future and the Key of David was given for the purpose of opening this particular door. Read Revelation 3 and see if this be not so.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; [Were  you not given the Key of David? Those that hear and believe these words are they to whom I have given the Keys of My Kingdom without restraint. I have set before these called-out ones a mighty open door.] 

:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. [Have I not opened many doors before you. Have I not kept you all these years? Are you not one of David’s children? You are if you keep My Words to David and do not deny that the Words that I gave unto David are My Words. I have put My Word even above My name so by not denying My Word you have not denied My name.]

:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. [These false ones and their usurper god have come to the end of the line. Their line that has gone out into all the world has an end. The Keys that Satan was given –those that he stole when he departed from My presence– are all played out. Their life expectancy limit has expired, and they cannot, will not be renewed by Me. He hasn’t paid his re-registration fee. All his fiddling and finagling has come to nothing but destruction and death to him and all those that follow his dead-end line. Now it is time to pay the fiddler, Me.]

 

 

:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. [Yes My dearest dears, the time of temptation has come upon the world. The door to the Great Tribulation stands before you, and you hold the right Key in your hand. Look up and see what number is on the door…22. Now look and see what you hold in your hand, the Key of David! Yes, the Key to the door that will keep you and your loved ones in the hour of temptation. Your faith has brought you this far. Now let it carry you all the way home to Me and your reward.]

:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. [These are but a few of the many rewards awaiting you, My lovers, My brides, My faithful ones. Those that “know” Me as you have come to know Me through our love-making and have My golden seeds flowing through them, are those whose rewards will follow them on throughout eternity.]

:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Listen My bride and you will hear whispers from behind the veil that only the Key of Faith can unlock…

…So come My brides, leave the world and its worldliness, the froth and bubble of a useless and empty future. Pop, it goes as I prick it with the pin of 22! Poof go the plans of man and Satan. Why piddle in that puddle that is left on the floor? Why weep over a burst bubble, a mere trifle that is so easily blown away by the winds of change. Can you feel it blowing? The spirit is moving. The wild wind of My spirit is blowing, and it will build as this door fully opens. No man can shut what the Key of David has opened. No man or god can undo or bind what has been loosed by the Keys of the Kingdom. No man can stop those that hold the Keys in their tiny hands. They have opened the door of 22, and the winds of My will are pushing hard against it. Don’t stand there with your back against it, O foolish elites, O duped of Satan, your strength is of this world and you push against the very breath of God. Can flesh overcome spirit? Your flesh and the ways of flesh are death. It profits nothing. It is the spirit that reigns supreme and those that follow My spirit will rule and reign with Me for all eternity.

All is lost! Abandon ship, you fools! Run to the mountains and hide yourselves in the rock and caves of the earth, for the hurricane of the wrath of God is pushing through the door of 22. It has been opened and none can shut it, for it is written, and the time of temptation has come upon the world. Look upon the wall of My will and read, Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin. Your kingdom has been weighed on the balance of God and has been found greatly wanting. You, your kingdom and world have been given into the hands of the people of the saints of the Most High. Flee, for the day of wrath has come. Vipers, rats and foul things of the earth, your day of judgement has come. Flee if you will into the arms of the usurper. Wail and moan and cut yourselves as did the priests of Baal in the days of Elijah. See if he can save you. He is a broken thing, a pot, cracked and broken, or a wet stick that gives off nothing but smoke, no flame, no heat and is not even good for a beating.

O foolish Galatians, choose ye this day whom you will serve. If Baal be god, then line up, serve his mark, serve the serpent and take your medicines and phials of poison. Serve the treasures and riches of Egypt, of gold, silver, tin and zinc. But if God be God, then serve Him. Come out from among them and touch not this unclean bird. This is your year of escape, and My just ones must live by faith. If you serve Me, then come into the wilderness of My spirit. I will fit you with eagle’s wings, and you will fly from the wrath to come.” (End of prophecy.)

Who can capture the Wild Wind? Who can corner the winds & put them into their place?–Only the songs of David & of Moses!

The Words of David & all the saints came from the Wild Wind of the Spirit of God!  (David Prophecies [#020])

Quench not the Spirit, but open yourselves and let it flow–flow, flow, flow! Let it flow freely. Embrace the Wild Wind! Let it lift you above earthly concerns. Mount up, dear ones, receive, and rise–rise high above! Don’t hold back. Receive, receive, receive! The King seeks to have you. He longs to possess you, therefore open yourselves wide.

Oh, how He loves our praises, how they bid Him come. How these praises call out to Him, how they lure Him; they pursue Him; they stir Him. Be roused, dear brides, and so will your Lover be roused. Join me in His praise. Praise Him to His heart’s delight, that He might come into us. Let us declare our praise, that we might receive to full contentment.                           

(Natalia:) Praise Him for His revelations, for revealing to you deep things of His Spirit.

(Natalia:) Praise Him in all things, with every breath you breathe, with every thought you think, with every word you speak. (Keys to the Kingdom!, The [#3318])
