The Time Of My Great Warriors

Glynda Lomax
I was shown a vision of a stormy sea - very large black waves were crashing down and wrapping around, crashing against each other. All around the waves I could see only darkness. It looked like the darkest of stormy nights.
The word `turmoil' came to my mind. In the midst of the turmoil of all the crashing waves, a small light appeared, as over the horizon. Like an approaching ship or a distant lighthouse, but very quickly the waves swallowed up the light and it was gone. Then I saw a frozen landscape, as if in the dead of winter. I have no idea what the frozen landscape meant.
The following morning, the Lord began to speak.
"Times are about to become very difficult in the world, My Children. There is no time for playing games, all your time must be focused on preparation for what is to come and on walking in your calling. Remove now the excesses from your lives as I have been speaking to your hearts to do. Lighten the load you carry for you cannot carry as heavy a load on an uphill run and that is what is coming for you."
"Big changes loom on the horizon behind the scenes that will affect your everyday lives."
"Be careful to show kindness to each other, to walk in My love towards one another, as this will shield you from many of the attacks of the enemy and help you to remain focused."
"I will be moving in many of your lives in coming months, orchestrating the changes I desire to make you more fit for kingdom use and to strategically position you for the things I have called you to do. Do not fight against My changes for they are necessary and unless you submit to Me in them, you cannot be of full benefit to My kingdom."
"Turmoil is coming to many governments in the next two months. This is My Hand at work, though it will not seem so to many. Many of My own people do not understand the many avenues I work through. All that is of peace is not of Me, and all that is of war is not either. Nothing happens that I do not allow, and the enemy's plans come as no surprise to Me for I see all and know all."
"My Word holds the key to understanding all things. My Word is My most precious gift to you, My Children. My Word, My Son. If you walk by My Word, you walk in wisdom and the world has no effect on you."
"Those who ignore the power in My Word will fall quickly in times coming for they will not know how to stand against the enemy's onslaught on My People. Be diligent therefore in studying My Word, that you may live and not die. Those who have ears to hear, hear and obey."
"I have sent many to warn of what is coming but many still walk in darkness. Many walk in folly, not believing. They shall be taken quickly, unawares, for they did not believe My Word. All you need to survive you have in My Word. In it is wisdom and guidance. In it are hidden treasures of great price that you know not of."
"Those who obey Me shall survive what is coming. Yeah, not only survive, but prosper in it, for this will be the time of My Great Warriors. This will be the time of the lifting up, of the showing forth of those I have been preparing behind closed doors. This is your time, My Chosen Ones. Now is your time to shine before I finally bring you home to Me!"
"How I long for the day when you all enter into My rest and are all here with Me! I love you with an everlasting love without measure. I long to have you near Me, to hear your voice whisper My Name, to know you trust fully in Me in all things. Draw near to Me and seek Me in these dark times and you shall find Me and we shall be as one. I will hold you close to Me. I will cover you with My feathers and as you see displays of My mighty power, you will not feel afraid at all for I shall protect you as a good shepherd protects the flock for you are Mine and I love you with a jealous love!"
"What is soon coming is the dark night of the soul for some - those who are not ready; A time of revealing for those who are. This will be My time to reveal to the world who you truly are in Me. Many will stand in awe of the gifts I have placed in you and of My mighty power working through you. Be sure you give Me the glory, My Children. Woe to those who try to take My Glory for themselves for destruction comes quickly to them!"
"Now is a time of much prayer. Pray that you may walk worthy through the turmoil that is coming. Pray that you will not be found wanting in any way. Pray that you will be ready to step in to all I have called you to do for My Name's sake. Pray that you do not stumble in the way, for the battle is quickly approaching. Pray for your brothers and sisters - pray for each other to be strengthened and made ready in every possible way."
"In days to come I will begin to remove obstacles from your path that you may serve Me more fully and efficiently. Watch for these things to happen and inquire of Me about what changes I would have you to make at that time for when I do this, I have a purpose for what was freed up."
"Some of you will hear from Me soon to move or to reposition yourselves for My purposes. Know that I will bring you the means and ways to do so when the time comes and do not fear for there is always provision on the path to which I have called you and to believe otherwise is to believe a lie from the enemy. If you have no provision, check that the path you are on is truly the way I have called you to go, for many times My Children take a wrong turn and think I do not provide but this is never the case. I am a loving and faithful provider." "Hard times are coming, My Children. Times like nothing you have ever encountered before, but I have already spoken provision for you into existence. Look for it for it shall surely appear."
"Prepare well. Prepare to run the race set before you for My Glory!"
John 1:14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Matthew 13:9: Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Isaiah 45:3: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
Jeremiah 6:10: To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
Ezekiel 33:4: Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
Psalm 91:4: He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Luke 22:32: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
Deut. 4:24: For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. Isaiah 45:2: I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
Acts 12:21: And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. 22And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

Wings of Prophecy

Bringing the Kingdom In

Amy Williams

/"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord´s favour.’… And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."/ (Luke 4:16-21)Bringing the kingdom in

“Christ’ (or “Messiah’) means “anointed one’. Though eternally the Son of God, Jesus received the Spirit´s anointing for His earthly ministry when He was baptised in the River Jordan (Luke 3:21-22). His anointing was tested in the wilderness, yet He returned “in the power of thSpirit’ (Luke 4:1 & 14). And when Jesus read out the Isaiah´s words, publicly, they became His “Messiah manifesto’.

Jesus not only declared Himself to be the Messiah, He also declared what His anointing would produce: life for the poor, all accepted and valued; opened eyes, of the physically and spiritually blind; healing and deliverance from oppression; the justice and equality of God´s kingdom. /"This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing."/ (Acts 2:32,33)

At Pentecost, the anointing that God bestowed on the ascended Jesus was poured out on His body, the Church. The anointing that was on Jesus in the days of His earthly ministry, and which God now pours out on the Church as we receive the Spirit´s power, is all about bringing the Kingdom in. It´s not for ourselves; we don´t have power for our own sakes but to serve the people.

God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. (Acts 10:38).

Jesus did everything under that anointing. He was compelled; everything else was secondary. We need to know the anointing on what we´re doing, the anointing impelling us. Let´s let the Messiah´s manifesto be our manifesto: Kingdom release and power among the people.

Prophetic lifestyle

Jesus and His disciples lived simply and shared what few goods and possessions they had. They even had a common purse. When the Holy Spirit was poured out on the New Testament church at Pentecost this lifestyle of sharing was extended to include many thousands of people.
“And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.’ (Acts 2:44-45)

Sadly, the spirit of individualism and consumerism has entered the Christian church. People often attend church for what they can get out of it rather than what they can contribute. We must go against the tide and express a prophetic lifestyle of Kingdom values as taught by Jesus: love for the spiritual family, simplicity, living for God´s cause, justice, and sharing what we have. In this way we prove that Jesus is Lord of our lives in reality.

Community must always be a hub of love, welcome, warmth, relationships, spiritual vibrancy and creativity. It´s the home of the Holy Spirit and ought to be an attractive, fertile place; an expression of God´s heart. This lifestyle is the road to maturity and release into ministry. Have you thought of walking further down this community road? There are many practical ways you could do this. Whatever you do, do something that shows more of Jesus´ heart to share His all in community with others.

Strategies of the Enemy

Stephen Hanson

 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Cor. 2

"I tell you that the uprisings throughout this nation are but a sign of the unrest that many are sensing.  Look beyond the political outcomes. Look beyond the parties. Do you not see the strategies of the enemy?  Do you not know that he comes to divide and conquer?  Do you not know that he plants seeds in the minds of others to fulfill his plans?

Why not spend time in prayer instead of voicing your disdain for the system?  Do you see the unrest throughout the globe?  Do you see how dominoes are falling?  I tell you these are signs. I am pulling down dictators. I am stirring the pot. And when all is said and done, and the smoke begins to settle, then the one who thinks he has a plan will give his answer to the nations.  No, this man is not in power now. But he will rise in the ranks and give his plan for peace.

And so you ministers and prophets, instead of posting the issues throughout the globe, why not look to my word and hear from my spirit?  Otherwise you partake in the same strategies of the enemy. Otherwise, you become a tool for division."

Stephen Hanson

Mammon of Unrighteousness

By Olufunso J. Omidiran

14 ¶And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see (Revelation 3:14-18).  

As we read through the report of the Lord concerning the Church of Laodicea, the Lord is also speaking to this generation and showing us where we have erred. The spirit of mammon causes its victims to be so spiritually perverted that one is bound to feel sorry for such victims. The above listed characteristics of the Laodicean Church are the very hallmark of those who are under the illusion and influence of this foul spirit. Let us listen to the voice of the Lord to this generation as we look at the perils of a generation that is under the bondage of mammon, a wicked spirit.  Here they are:

They are lukewarm. Worldliness turns the heart of men away from fervent consecration and service to God; at this point a person gradually loses every desire or hunger for the things of God. His heart is drawn far away from God because he has been deceived. We find this in Mark 4:19: “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful’.

Spiritually lukewarm fellows are nauseating to God by reason of their foolish ways. Hence, the Lord says He will vomit them out of His mouth. Isn´t it terrifying to be rejected by God Almighty? “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth’.

They are boastful and arrogant because they are overwhelmed by the abundance of their possession. They look down on the poor with contempt. The wicked spirit called mammon doesn´t allow its victim to be humble before the Lord who has declared in Matthew 23:12 thus: “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.’ The Lord further rebukes the Laodicean Church thus: “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked’ What someone can say about himself is not as important as what God says. Besides, a blind soul cannot even see anything!
They are perverted and self-deluded in their thoughts and actions because they have been deceived. An arrogant person claims self-sufficiency and pretends as if they lack nothing when indeed they wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked, nay helpless. They are foolish liars who continually deceive themselves.

 Their judgment concerning their true state is wrong because they are completely ignorant. “and KNOWEST NOT that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked…o’ By divine estimation they are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked while thinking that they are rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing. They fail to see things as God sees them; as a result, they are in conflict with God.

Mammon is a spirit that causes men to emphasise self-consciousness rather than God-consciousness; it makes people to rate success in terms of fulfilment of some selfish, man-made and ungodly dreams. It makes people to base self-esteem on worldly values concerning which God has sternly warned us in His word:

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever (1 John 2:15-17).

The Lord´s Counsel
The Lord told the Church (and we also) to invest on eternal things rather than the passing deceptive riches of this world. The Lord also counsels us to “buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.’ In other words we are to seek the Lord for true help and riches. Buying from the Lord entails readiness to seek at all cost, and pay the price for that which is everlasting. In like manner, the Lord is saying the same thing in Proverbs 23: 23 “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.’

The Modern Church
Why is the modern Church so far away from God´s expectation? How do you consider undue emphasis on materialism or so-called prosperity at the expense of a true unfeigned relationship with the Lord? Is it scripturally true to presume that physical wealth is a mark of divine approval and godliness? Should we not rather go back to biblical Christianity before it is too late? If the Lord condemned the way of the Laodicean Church in times past, will He now alter His truth in our own time? Let us think carefully as we prepare to meet our Lord. We shall yet continue our discussion from here next time by God´s grace. Shalom.

Tear Down the Walls

- A Vision
-by David Stansell

I also had a vision in 2003 that spoke of a change in the Church.

I saw a red brick building.  It was a church building.  The roof was rotten, the wood in the walls was rotten.   The remedy was to remove all the wood in the building.  It needed to be replaced.  It could not be repaired.

Well, this meant that the brick walls would have to be torn down as they were not in shape to support themselves without a connection to the wood.  In very poor shape.

So I saw the building reduced to the foundation stones.  I was ready to see a new building build on this old foundation.

However the Spirit of God spoke.   "Take out the foundation.  It is not substantial enough to support the building that I am ready to build on this ground."

The building that God is ready to build (Bride) is to be so much glorious than our present understanding.  However,  *are* we ready for Him to take down the present building?  And take it down all the way to the original dirt? Our human side wants to hold onto something that is recognizable from our past.  It then becomes that leaven that brings back all the old junk of the previous life.

Then I heard,  "I am looking for a 'General Contractor' who will build according to the blue print."  Then I understood that He would only entrust the construction of this building to someone who is fully submitted to do all and not less that all that comes from the throne of Heaven.  We are not the architect.  It is not our job to design the building.

Shortly after the vision I was in Acts 5.  In verse 32, I was over-whelmed with the truth that we do *not* have the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT because we do *not* obey his voice.  (Jer 7: 22)...

God is ready for His bride to operate in all the power that Jesus had while He was on this earth (Scriptures say this) when we are ready to relate to God the same way Jesus related to the Father.

As I look at church history, I see that God gave men truth and they used their minds to ADD more truth. And then this new truth brought death to the truth of God.  Where are the people who can be obedient only to the simple truths brought by the Holy Spirit?

When All Means Fail

David Wilkerson (Final message before his death that day, Apr 27, 2011).

To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen’ (John 20:29).

Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.

Someone has come to the place of hopelessness—the end of hope—the end of all means. A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening.

That is when Satan´s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.’

Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don´t quit on God—just do not trust him anymore. It doesn´t pay!’

Even questioning God´s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.

To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.’

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.
