In the last week the Lord has been showing me His truth regarding all that surrounds the killing of 9 saints at the AME church in Charleston SC. There is great GOOD that will come from the blood of those martyrs. It is happening already. Look past the insanity of a trapped devil as he screams and you can see it.
This has resulted in the exposure of how the lie machine works in the USA. There is an industry set up to fuel the fires of hatred when events like this happen. Yet those on the ground in South Carolina were not phased by the hate machine. The father of lies was driving a bus that has resulted in unwise action and reaction of all those who jumped on. It is easy to see the result of those things. Fury and storm are in the air.. but not in South Carolina.
Remember who the enemy really is and how he works. The devil has no new schemes. He has always twisted truth, "Hath God Said". He is always distorting Scripture and appearing to be religious (Jesus tempted of the Devil). He is always motivating people to obey their flesh and murder (Cain and Able). He uses lies and false accusations to motivate people to take mob action (Crucify Him). He tries to change the natural law to accomplish his goals (When the music starts, bow down to the idol). He puts people in religious positions accomplish his mission (Jesus speaking to the Pharisees in John 8 and in particular the verse 44)
You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
We must be aware that when we see things being torn down, destroyed, burned up, killed, stolen and lied about that it is all direct from the pit of hell.
The good news is the gates of Hell cannot prevail, will not prevail against the goodness of God. There has been a change, an important change. A change that cannot be reversed. The devil and his agents have been exposed. There are innocent people who have become deceived.. and will have to repent. Some will be demoted for their unfaithfulness. It is darkness and light, shadow and the brightness of the SON. The choice to believe and follow will be made.. there is no middle ground. Compromise with sin, deception and delusion is death.
Good is coming from this terrible act. People of nobility are seeing this change. We will remember this time as that before and that after. God always has a way of making what appears to be evil into good.. This time is no different except it's GOOD on steroids.
Jesus was unafraid to confront that which was gross deception on the part of the Pharisees in the John 8 account (see below). He still is, but now he uses His called ones on the earth to stand down the Pharisees of our day. They are the ones calling for the stoning of the woman caught in adultery. Jesus is coming against them once again thru you.
He is saying to his prophets and apostles, NOW is the time to take a strong position against the works of the enemy. Not just in prayer but with the word of Truth. Jesus IS truth. Take up your position and fight against the lies, the hate, the anger, the resentments, the deceptions and begin to do your Father's will.
Here's how I heard him say this:
"I have called many to stand strong in this day. To take up the Sword of the Spirit and fight the battle that is raging. Men's souls hang in the balance. You were put here for such a time as this.
I am redeeming the evil men do with My Good. Do not let the lies that you hear and see become a stumbling block. Mark those well who cause division among you and set them aside. They are agents of the enemy of your soul, even if unaware. This battle is not lost, it has only begun but victory is already won.
Put on that full armor and fight a good fight for it is not about flesh and blood but it is about the powers, principalities and perceptions that the devil is bringing. People are not my enemies, I love them all, even the deceived ones. I will bring them to the truth.. but they can be won only by demonstration of My Truth and Power.
Be careful what and who you believe in these days. Ask me for a double portion of discernment to uncover evil done in the name of justice. Those who crucified my Son thought they were doing justice. They knew not what they were doing and I forgave them.
Even those hardened by reporting the news of the day have been moved greatly by the power of My Spirit demonstrated in the people of Charleston. Find out what I am doing in the earth and work with ME to accomplish MY purposes. You are alive at a great time in History.. exposure of evil and magnification of GOOD."
Here's how JESUS dealt with the deceivers of his day.. should we do any less? Will we become diamonds or dust? What will the heat and pressure do you do?
"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
33 “But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?”
34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. 35 A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. 37 Yes, I realize that you are descendants of Abraham. And yet some of you are trying to kill me because there’s no room in your hearts for my message. 38 I am telling you what I saw when I was with my Father. But you are following the advice of your father.”
39 “Our father is Abraham!” they declared.
“No,” Jesus replied, “for if you were really the children of Abraham, you would follow his example.[h] 40 Instead, you are trying to kill me because I told you the truth, which I heard from God. Abraham never did such a thing. 41 No, you are imitating your real father.”
They replied, “We aren’t illegitimate children! God himself is our true Father.”
42 Jesus told them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. 43 Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It’s because you can’t even hear me! 44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 So when I tell the truth, you just naturally don’t believe me! 46 Which of you can truthfully accuse me of sin? And since I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.”
48 The people retorted, “You Samaritan devil! Didn’t we say all along that you were possessed by a demon?”
49 “No,” Jesus said, “I have no demon in me. For I honor my Father—and you dishonor me. 50 And though I have no wish to glorify myself, God is going to glorify me. He is the true judge. 51 I tell you the truth, anyone who obeys my teaching will never die!”
52 The people said, “Now we know you are possessed by a demon. Even Abraham and the prophets died, but you say, ‘Anyone who obeys my teaching will never die!’ 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?”
54 Jesus answered, “If I want glory for myself, it doesn’t count. But it is my Father who will glorify me. You say, ‘He is our God,’[i] 55 but you don’t even know him. I know him. If I said otherwise, I would be as great a liar as you! But I do know him and obey him. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced as he looked forward to my coming. He saw it and was glad.”
57 The people said, “You aren’t even fifty years old. How can you say you have seen Abraham?[j]”
58 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I am![k]” 59 At that point they picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus was hidden from them and left the Temple.
