“Now is the time of the whispers, and all My troops that have taken the call seriously are using this method. This is the method of communication from now on; it has been for a while, but it is now in earnest. Forms of earthly communication will become more and more difficult and in some ways impossible. This may not be an easy saying for some, but I cannot strive with the double-minded endlessly. As I’ve said before, Satan saw the fall of the COD as his golden opportunity, as his signal to strike what he thought to be his most deadly blow to My plan at that time. Now he is locked, loaded and ready to go, and will not, cannot turn from the inevitable end –all-out war.
This is the time when My troops must be where they have been called to be, to fill the places that have been kept open for them. If they are not ready or if they are hesitant, then they must remain where they are and there fight with the resources they have at hand. If you are called to be a commander of a small guerilla band or if you only have one or two people to oversee, make sure you do it with My earpiece in your ear listening intently to My every instruction. All My troops both spiritual and physical are now behind enemy lines.” (Jesus speaking)
“Gird up the loins of your mind. The devil is come forth having great wrath for he sees his time is coming. The world rocks and reels at his moves. The pieces on the board sway to his every move; he is drunk with power. He laughs at My people. Yet little does he know, I am raising up My army of the end, my band of warriors, My elite. Well have I hidden them, here and there do they dot the land. He is a fool, for soon they -you- shall spring forth, and in his drunken stupor, he shall fall. But be ready and stay close, hold on tight to the keys. For he shall rise, and even now he does search the earth for any who would oppose him.
Stand fast, My love, gird up the loins of your mind, put on My mind, seal your thought with the Keys of My spirit and be ready. He seeks to pull you off the wall, to render you useless by weakening your channel with the cares and worries and things of this world. Be not deceived, be forewarned and forearmed. Stand close and fight on. I am with you and I have the power you need to defeat him and whatever he would throw at you, if you will but hold on and fight. Fight, My love. Stay close and come to Me in prophecy about every situation. Yield to My voice, and stray not. I am the good shepherd and I watch after My sheep. Trust and obey. I love you.”
Gird up and be ready
“Stand fast, My love, gird up the loins of your mind, put on My mind, seal your thought with the Keys of My spirit and be ready.”
“The world is entering its last days. Many walk into the deep darkness totally unaware and blind to what is right in front of them. This is because they are asleep. They have resisted My call to them to go forth to make disciples of all men, therefore they have fallen right into the trap that Satan has laid. He knows that force and might do not work on My children, for this he has tried in the past. So he has taken another route, the route of ease. They have resisted My call to battle, My call to stay stirred up, My call to continue in battle as not to be lulled to sleep by the deceiver. Therefore they now sleep. And in their sleep and in their blindness, they walk on into the blackness of the worst storm this world will ever face.
The time is spent, and it is too late for many. They will go on pretending all is as it always was. Call My loves, call, call and call again. Call; that some might hear you and be saved. The night is come; the thunder is flashing across the sky. Soon the whole world will be at war. Ready thy lamp, ready thy sword, and prepare to walk in total darkness – totally by faith. Now is the time to let go and let My voice lead you. Nothing else must have sway in your lives, for if it does…if you follow any other voice but Mine, the winds of this storm will blow you away. No, My love, only in the Keys and loving Me intimately will you find your way. With these two weapons, you will brave what lies ahead. Love Me and get My directions for you. Hold the keys out before you and walk totally by faith. I love you, and I am with you. Fear not.”
Many walk in darkness
“The time is spent, and it is too late for many. They will go on pretending all is as it always was.”
For the contestant, running a race of faith, can be, at times, likened to running a 400-meter surge on the last lap of a marathon. There is one feature in that last 400 meters that must be unquestionable; paying no heed to the enemy who is right there at your side threatening your conquest.
I had the privilege to spectate such a race this past week; it was a memorable race, with an extraordinary finish!
This is how it unfolded and how it was won.
The contestant—my daughter’s boyfriend, the support crew—mainly children who possessed that matter-of-fact variety of faith, the race setting; one that many of us face many times in our lives, financial trouble.
In reflection, the runner made a few key moves that I believe won him the race. His race-end perspective may be different, but as a spectator this is what I saw. On the back stretch, with his eye on the post, his primary move was to share his fears and ask for prayer. “Asking for united prayer and being willing to share your lessons and your heart is so helpful and such a good thing. It’s good for your humility, and united prayer is a powerful force for good and change. The power that we have when we pray unitedly is tremendous—much greater than one of us just praying on our own, no matter how desperately.”
That last 400; when you are struck with the realization that what you are facing is truly beyond your own strength. The props have gone, the training, race preparation and experience are all forgotten, only you, the enemy and…the finish line! It was at this point that our brave winner let go! Have you ever watched “Chariots of Fire”? At that point in the race when you are spent and God takes over, you throw it all into the arms of your Savior. Oh the elation, the reckless, wholesome praiseful abandon, the magic formula of faith, the substance of things hoped, the evidence of things not seen—crossing that line with raised arms in praise to a God that promised He would not fail in one of His precious promises—was realized in the last 400.
“These battles of faith should show you that you need to move higher in the spirit so that the things of the world don’t have such influence on you. It is entirely possible because Jesus has given you spiritual weapons that are stronger and have much more power than that enemy breathing down your neck. This is how Jesus teaches you how to use them.”
Our story unfolds as our young man, experienced in business and making money, finds himself in a situation where his experience, training and preparation miserably fail him. It was one of those measured frustrating defeats that come upon one slowly and almost hopelessly. The extenuating circumstances could be blamed on others, the situation, or whatever, but in this case, our man of faith realized he was in line for a lesson. Wisdom begins to reveal a maker behind the cookie on his plate. The past and the future all rush into one single point of focus, “I gotta get out of this hole, but how? I have nothing left; what I thought was possible is no longer what it once seemed.”
At what point in the marathon he came to me, I don’t know, but it truly looked like the last 400 meters to me. He had stepped out by faith and booked his and my daughters airline tickets without any physical means of supporting the idea. “God showed me to do it” is what he told me. Well, for me, that was like a green light. We gathered those “crazy faith” kids of ours, explained the basic battlefield layout. The war room was set up and the fight began. There was money owed, but it was not happening. The prayers continued unabated hourly for one week—zero results. The last 400 meters was coming into view, it was time to “let go”. “Oh God I can’t do this!” “No, you can’t, because this race was designed in such a way that only I can”, God replied. Our man of faith crosses the magical last 400 meter barrier, and with two days to go, God takes over! Some money arrives at the door, part payment from someone who owed. The next morning another domino falls -a friend agrees to take on the burden of retrieving another debt after our man leaves the country, and hands over the money still owed! Victory!
But wait, there is still one day left, surely God is not finished. Where is the winner’s laurel? Where does the “Well done thy good and faithful servant” part come in? The former came as many miracles do, unexpected yet hoped for. In this case, it was found under the seat of his car in the form of a wad of cash that till that point had remained a secreted stash waiting for the right key to unlock it. Now the key was one of those special Heavenly ones called “the law of love”. And it was manifested by a good deed. Someone’s car had broken down outside his house and he went out to help them, and during the operation needed a spanner, which he remembered was under the back seat of his pick-up. He reached inside the toolbox only to find a bank note in his hand!! He went in again, another and another and yet another bank note emerged. Forty-one high denomination bills came forth from the window of Heaven. (Testimonies of faith)
“I promise to lead you through to a place of victory that cannot be taken away from you.”
“The Enemy knows the strength, power and anointing of the pillars of God. He knows that you’re able to stop his dirty work, so he’ll do anything he can to stop you from becoming a pillar. The way he does that is by trying to get you to doubt and reject the Word. If he can get you to think that the Word doesn’t work and the New Wine isn’t of the Lord, then he knows you’ll not read and absorb the Word as you should, and he will thereby succeed in cutting you off from the source of your faith and strength.”
the word is the key
“If the Enemy is attacking you in this way, the Lord gives the keys to bring about his downfall: Drink in the Word in full faith, and then obey it. Resist, fight and don’t surrender when the Enemy tempts you to doubt, criticize or reject the Word. Of course, you’ll have to take this by faith, but if you take the first step, and go on the attack to read and receive the Word by faith, praying desperately, then you’ll see the Lord pull you through and give you peace and understanding in your heart, as a result of your obedience.”
Listen, obey, yield
“It takes time to receive the training the Lord has for you. It doesn’t happen overnight, but requires that you receive a constant, steady stream of the Word, and consistently listen, obey, and yield to the Lord, day after day, month after month, year after year! You may think this is a hard road, but the Lord says it’s an easy road when compared to “being in the dark days without being a pillar.” In the years to come, you’ll be happy you endured the training and the preparation of today, because you’ll be well-equipped with the strength and gifts you’ll need for the exploits you’ll do in the End. Praise the Lord!”
( Pillars in the Last Days )
pillars in the last days
“The Lord is doing a great work in each of you to prepare you to be strong, powerful witnesses in the days to come. Through the lessons you’re learning today, He’s making you into the pillars you will need to be tomorrow! Day by day as you grow in faith, drink in the New Wine, learn to hear His whispers, and follow closely by obeying what He shows you to do, you’re becoming the prophets and men and women of conviction and power and anointing that the Lord needs. These are days of preparation. These are days of the creating of pillars.”
(Jesus speaking:) I wish for My children to learn to hear from Me, to follow Me closely, to obey what I say to do, to yield to the ways that I lead them, to hear the whispers, the messages, and to follow in faith. As they learn these things, they shall become more connected, they shall become stronger. They shall become more confident in Me and stronger in faith, as they see Me perform what I said I would do. They shall become pillars, I say, in the Last Days; pillars of light that will shine in the darkness; pillars of strength that will uphold many; pillars of faith that will do miracles, move mountains, call down wonders; pillars to stand strong against the wiles of the Evil One as he goes forth to deceive and to destroy even the very elect.
pillars of god
“These are the days of the creating of the pillars, of the strengthening, of the growing, of the broadening and the heightening of these pillars. And how do they become pillars?-Through faith, through belief, through drinking in the New Wine, God’s Word, and through receiving His directions, His Word, His instruction, His guidance themselves; through prayer, through the Word, through prophecy, through obedience, through yieldedness.
“Satan does all that he can to deceive and to defeat you! He has done this from the beginning. He is the caster of doubts, the demon of defeat, the Lucifer of lies! And so he tries to cause you to doubt, to lie to you, to defeat you, to keep you from becoming the pillars that I wish for you to be.”
“I say to you, My children, be not deceived by the Evil One who wishes to keep you from becoming the pillars of God, for he knows the strength and the power and the anointing of the pillars of God. He knows that the pillars of God keep him from his dirty work and destroy and defeat his works, and thus he tries to keep you from becoming the pillars of God. He casts forth his doubts, his lies, saying, “This is not the way to become a pillar; these things are not true.” He tries to weaken your faith. He tries to get you to reject the truth, to reject the Word, which is the giver of faith. He attacks My Words; he says they are not true, he states they do not work.” (prophecy)
“How do you defeat him?-You drink in God’s Word. You drink it in in full faith, in full belief, desiring it and wanting it, implementing it, obeying it, yielding to it. You defeat him by resisting, by fighting, and by not surrendering as he tries to lie and deceive and defeat you.”
“It takes time to become a pillar, to have the strength, to have the faith, and it is accomplished by the constant, steady stream of God’s Word being poured into you, by your listening to Jesus, to His whispers, to His voice, and by your obedience and your yieldedness day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. It seems it is a hard road for you, but it is an easy road compared to being in the dark days without being a pillar.”
