A word of Warning and a Word of Encouragement about what you see in the world right now

I have been silent because I didn't want to miss God.  I now have a word of encouragement and a word of warning for the Body of Christ.

The word of encouragement: the Purposes of God are not going to be thwarted by the enemy of our souls.

The word of warning: the devil is wounded and is fighting the advance of truth with all his fury.  There will be casualties.

Right now in the world and in the USA there is blazing a great civil war in the spirit.  It is not yet a hot civil war, but there are those on both sides of this conflict devoted to victory.  The ammunition in this war is easy to see:

  • Anger
  • Lies
  • Fear
  • Half Truth
  • Ridicule
  • Persecution

The enemy of our souls has chosen this time to attack because he has been wounded.  Like a wounded foe, he is rising up using even believers for his purposes.  They think they are on the side of righteousness but they are deceived.

This is a parallel to Psalm 92.  Many Bible students think that it was when King Cyrus of Persia beat King Belshazzar of Babylon that this Psalm was written as a Praise to God. Cyrus then sent the Jews home to their own country. For 70 years, the Babylonians had made them live in Babylon. Now they were free!

Here is what we see in that Psalm:
How great are your works, O Lord!   Your thoughts are very deep!The stupid man cannot know;the fool cannot understand this: that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish,they are doomed to destruction forever; but you, O Lord, are on high forever. For behold, your     enemies, O Lord, for behold, your enemies shall perish;  all evildoers shall be scattered.  But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;  you have poured over me fresh oil. My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;  my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
We are seeing the faces of evil revealed in this day.  We are seeing naked assault on the cause of Christ.

Some examples:

In the last week we had a so called "Women's March" on a global scale.  At first I thought it was simply an outburst against the election of a new President.  But as I watched I heard the Lord say, "this is the writhing of that old serpent under your feet".  Seeing people dressed in the most disgusting ways, hearing "Speeches" with the most vile talk, seeing people with posters screaming for the blood of innocents in abortion.  Destruction, destroying and celebrating death.  It was full manifestation of the devil's agenda on a world wide scale.

No matter your support or lack of it for the new President of the USA, if you call yourself a Christian at any level whatsoever you were sickened by what you saw.  If you were not, you must check your heart. If you silently cheered for the protesters, you are in peril of your soul.

Now there are new protests, anarchy and violence in the street again this weekend. Different cause, same spirit.  These are people who in a second would obliterate the Christian faith from the earth if they had the power.  The Lord spoke and said, "These are not of my spirit they are of another and even if they believe they are speaking for me they are regurgitating the guttural language of the devil". 

This is NOT about the New President.  This is about a demonically orchestrated movement driven by the devil himself and his demons.  He is artfully using the news media to spread rumors and inflame.  It has ever been so when truth threatens to upset the demonic apple cart.

When Paul and Silas Came to Thessalonica a mob rose up and tried to arrest them: Acts 17
5The Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also, and Jason has received them, and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king.  

The riot was about government.

This happened to Paul in Ephesus as well: Acts 19:23-41

Darkness is their Friend, any light at all torments them.  They cannot and will not hear truth. These rioter protesters are hiding in the darkness of a cause they do not understand.  They are stupid men according to the scripture.  The demonic news media is as culpable.

At one time there was a middle of the road.  Not as holy and righteous as many would have liked, but not as evil as it could be.  The enemy of our souls took the cultural and spiritual wheel and has driven us all into the ditch.  To get back on the road seems to them as if we are heading for the other ditch..  They do not recognize that to get back on the royal road will mean leaving the depths of the ditch they now occupy and wish to drag us into.  This is only hellfire and perdition there.

1 Peter Chapter 2:11-17 Offers some advice from the Apostle that is important to consider in this time for Christians:
 I urge you as aliens and strangers [in this world] to abstain from the sensual urges [those dishonorable desires] that wage war against the soul.  Conduct yourself honorably, with graciousness and integrity, so that for whatever reason they may slander you as evildoers, yet by observing your good deeds they may [instead come to] glorify God in the day of visitation [when He looks upon them with mercy]. 13 Submit yourselves to [the authority of] every human institution for the sake of the Lord [to honor His name], whether it is to a king as one in a position of power, 14 or to governors as sent by him to bring punishment to those who do wrong, and to praise and encourage those who do right. 15 For it is the will of God that by doing right you may silence (muzzle, gag) the [culpable] ignorance and irresponsible criticisms of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover or pretext for evil, but [use it and live] as bond-servants of God. 17 Show respect for all people [treat them honorably], love the brotherhood [of believers], fear God, honor the king.

Unfortunately for many so called believers this has been torn out of their Bibles apparently.  They do not comport themselves according to scripture.

They instead stand guilty of being among the So Called Christians Claiming to Know God:
Titus 1:15-16
  Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted.  Such people claim they know God, but they deny him by the way they live. They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good.

God is not going to allow this to go on.  The mask is off.  They are in the position of agreeing with the degradation of Romans 1 and are unashamed.  Many of the actions and degradation written about in Romans 1 is now celebrated even in the church.  Many supported people who would have lead us further down the Romans 1 road to degradation.

They have ignored the admonition of Titus 3:1-3
  Remind the believers to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient and ready for every good work, to malign no one, and to be peaceable and gentle, showing full consideration to everyone. For at one time we too were foolish, disobedient, misled, enslaved to all sorts of desires and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 

God's word does not support anarchy as is being foisted by the devil in the streets.  Now is the time for Dominion over the enemy.  Now is the time to understand the schemes of the enemy.  He has deceived many.  If you have been deceived, repent.  If you do not your lamp-stand will be removed. I speak this to those who claim spiritual leadership. 

You do not have to love, vote for, give undue honor or esteem for the President now in office.  Just as many did not with the former two administrations.  Many simply grinned and bore it.  But the vision of manifested evil on the streets of America should not be, it is ungodly and must be denounced as what it is.

You cannot walk with one foot in the devils lair and try to walk with the other in the kingdom. You will slip and fall into the ditch of perdition.  Choose now, choose life.

The Year to Come and Father Speaks

Here are some specific predictions:
The UN will not be defunded.  De-fanged yes.
The economy will not soar, but it will build a strong underpinning for years to come.
Low level inflation will occur but there is powerful deflationary pressure holding it down.
Gold and silver will not hide anyone from risk .. simply an alternative currency
By August there will be a hard entry into the Fall season but the year will end upbeat
The dollar will strengthen but that will hurt business

The middle east and ISIS will quell by default but most of that will not be at the hands of the USA.  The Russian Bear has it's sights set on a Mediterranean seaport in Syria with a path thru Georgia, Azerbaijan and Iran or Turkey.  This will happen by force or by cooperation. The path is already set.

European contrives will become less about the EU and more nationalistic.  The islamic invasion has driven this. EU will survive but only as a shell of its former promise.

2017 will be a year unlike any we have had in 30.  Upheaval, anger, resignation and hope after  disappointments.  Knowing we are in Fathers eye means we can walk in confidence.

Father would say:
I have only the best for you.  Don't fear the years to come.  There is always hope in ME.  I placed my spirit in you to comfort you as the times and days come.  You were always meant to be the head and I will raise you up.  Your purposes are fully hidden only in me.  I will strip away from your life anything that robs you of that purpose as you walk in the paths that seem dim to you but on which I am shining my light.  Follow the light of my truth, know my word, know my will and I will bring you to a new place.  It will be glorious but you won't see it until you get there.  I love you and even when it seems hard, I NEVER CHANGE.

The Enemy Exposed... FEAR, DIVISION and DEFAMATION of Godly People

Be wary of scare tactics in 2017 ... fear is the main tool the enemy has left and he has willing transmitters of his fear poison.  Some in the media, some as "Entertainment", some in social media and some are in the pulpit or on TV.  The world is not ending soon..  the Kingdom is expanding and God is still on the Throne.

The enemy is going to turn up the heat to divide people even more.  He will divide churches, denominations, city populations, people groups and even families.  Division is one of the prime schemes of the enemy.  We are instructed in scripture to mark well those who cause division.  Be aware.  Even on the public scene, there will be attempts to divide.  The enemy knows that he can count on weak people to turn against leadership at every level to weaken the whole.  Don't fall for this.

The enemy is out to defame people.  He wants to tear down anyone people hold up.  This goes for everyone from the highest to the lowest.  He will then supplant them with so called leaders who do his will.  Be vigilant for those who accuse the brethren.  Even if a leader does something or doesn't do something you thought he or she should have, now is the time for supernatural loyalty.  The voice of the accuser is shrill, loud and persistent.  Exposure of the schemes of the schemes of darkness is not going to come without protest.  Expect it.

Stay Steady in the Wake of Bad News

We will see many more deaths of notables, even in the body of Christ.  We will mourn them.. but we have more losses because we have more to lose.  There is a population of humanity that is coming of the ages of stepping from time into eternity.  Think it not strange that many more seem to be clearing the way for generations to come.  And those of us of a certain age must make sure that we speak to the Generations saying, "This is the way, walk ye in it".

There will mercifully be fewer end time scares, moons of many colors, harbingers, comets, eclipses, star formations and such. More and more Christians are coming to realize the truth. The enemy has used these myths of mysteries to hobble the saints and Father is saying, CUT IT OUT.   In 2017 there will be fewer.  Don't buy every one of these strange "Prophecies". 

Natural disasters will happen and some will be severe, they don't mean anything other than weather is weather and earth is earth.  There is no prophetic meaning.  Haiti will slowly recover but it will mean a political shakeup.  The same with Venezuela.  Corruption and evil will be exposed and people will slowly rise up.  We must not interfere.. they must come to this on their own, but many will and think it is helping.

Supernatural manifestations will happen more and more.  We will find saints of God testifying to things we don't almost believe ourselves.  Some will be imaginations ... but look for those which are true.  Father is revealing his hand in people's lives.  Expect it.  The miracles are on the way.

Right now virtual reality is a big thing.  That's because it's exciting thrilling but it's not reality.  The same thing is true in the world system.  Much of what we think is true by what we hear or see on media is virtual reality.  Yet there are demonic systems that use what you think you see or hear to manipulate the foolish.  Don't be one.  Money is raised for the devil's enterprise by well meaning people who have bought satan's lie.  Be careful who you trust in this day... even satan comes as an angel of light.  Things that have extracted resources from people will be shown up in the year to come to have been a wicked lie and will be discredited.  There is a move from Self Esteem which was a tool of the devil to cause people to fail to Self Improvement, particularly in Biblical Ways.  The enemy has been in full force against those who preach from the pulpit the improvement of our selves.  That will change in 2017.  We must not be victims, we must be better in the power of God.  There is a return to the kind of preaching of long ago when Norman Vincent Peal encouraged the saints in a dark day.  We will hear that again in 2017.  God has a plan.. learn it and live it.

Darkness versus Light in the Year to Come

There is a darkening cloud but there is also a bright beam of light on the horizon.  Jesus will shine greater and brighter to those who can see.  The devil however has blinded the mind and eyes of the unbeliever.  There is a large number of blinded people who may never see the truth.  That doesn't mean we must stop trying, just don't be discouraged.  Those who the devil has in his grasp will be hard to tear out.  If you would pray for them learn to pray that they will have the eyes of their understanding opened.  That usually happen in stressful situations.  Health, financial difficulty, relationships, lostness and hopelessness.  When you pray for them, pray that they come to the end of themselves.  That the Blessings of the Presence of God invade their lives.  BUT that will come with pain and suffering.  So when it happens don't be in a hurry to bail them out of their situation.  Recognize the trouble they are in must happen first so they get OUT by the power of GOD.  It's how we all came to Jesus.  We needed Him for more than salvation, but for hope, joy and peace.

A spiritual battle over our age has been engaged for some time.  Lawless behavior at every level is accepted.  Strong Delusions have been in operation deceiving even the Godly.  Strange myths and old wives tales. Weird conspiracy theories. Gossip and backbiting are rampant.  Ease of taking offense is the spirit of the age.  As you take a stand against this spirit there will be violent push back.  The god of this world hates exposure.  You will be criticized, ostracized and demonized.  Don't allow your fear of man to silence your needed voice in this hour.  God says to the spirit of this age that has dominated too long.. PERMISSION WITHDRAWN.  Like Job of old, there was permission given.  It's not any more.  But we are the mouth, hands, feet and purposed of Father in this age and we must manifest truth to the devil's deception.  Do not be afraid to be and put on public display the righteousness of God lived in your life. 

The princes of the power of the air has provided a wide road to perdition.  Many are on that road.   It's not about heaven or hell in the eternal, it's about living life today in the destiny God gave you.   You must not take the easy go along to get along road.  There are two roads.  Take the one less traveled.

The Enemy is Using Violence to Achieve his Purposes

We are about to enter a season unlike any we have had in the past.  We will find ourselves ruled by many Godly men and women.  The enemy will attack them.  He will try to marginalize them.  Be on watch for the attempts by an antichrist spirit to destroy the Godly. These leaders will find themselves in a brighter and more intense spotlight. The hyenas will nip at their heels.  There will be difficulty.  Many who had great belief in what might be will find themselves disappointed.  The exercise of what must happen will frustrate even the elect.  Deception will reign.  There will be an economic reset that will cause people to question how this can be.  The belief in a man to solve problems will be replaced by disillusionment.  Fathers word is "TRUST ME, I have your best interests at heart".

There will be sporadic acts of violence because the devil is on the loose stirring up hatred. When you see claims of hate as accusations against the children of God take a good look and you will see the face of satan revealed.  This is spiritual warfare in the mud.  Some of it will be acts of violence, damage, intimidation and threat.  Don't be taken by surprise.  The enemy has been dealt a severe blow... but he always recovers and will till the end of all things.  That too is a truth from Revelation.  Be on watch for the enemy of your souls.   He's wounded but he's not dead... yet.

There will be unusual alliances in the year to come.  Nationally, politically, spiritually and in people groups.   "Misery makes strange bedfellows" is a quote from Shakespeare's play the Tempest.  People will question why asking,  "how did ____ ever get connected with _____".   It will look out of order but there are new spiritual neurons being formed.

There are things that will be reset globally that will begin to come into order this year.  Some will be the result of Death.  Some the result of change of leadership.  Some the result of calamity.  Not everything is an attack, all change for better requires a reset.  Embrace the good and accept the bad and have faith in GOD.

The Compromised Christian Populates the Whore Church

The whore Church will wage a war for the souls of men against the Church of the Lamb of God.  It will find itself fully compromised.  Many will stay in that place of Denominations, Groups,  Networks and will find themselves at odds with those who stand for righteousness.  They will align themselves with the most ungodly philosophies and movements imaginable.  It will be spiritual blindness from the root of hell.  Beware of this in 2017.  There will be casualties.  Souls will be endangered from false alliances.

Godless pagan people will rail against the things of god.  Students in some colleges, many millennials who were never taught, those who protest against anything that represents something different from their thinking will demand to be protected from any opposing opinion. Sadly many of the blinded compromised christians who now find themselves aligned with these antichrist attitudes will try to protect themselves from anything that tampers with their confirmation bias.

Father says this to the compromised christian: 

Come out from among her, My people! Save your lives, each of you, from the LORD's burning anger.  Jeremiah 51:45

On Pentecost the Apostle Peter said: "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."  Acts 2:40 That is the call Father is making to compromised christians today.

Fathers heart has always been to call us out from among the filth of the world. 2 Corinthians 6:14-17  Don’t fellowship with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.

Addressing those who have embraced the whore church..a word from the Throne Room in Revelation 18:3-5 All the nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her immorality. The kings of the earth were immoral with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy through the extravagance of her luxury.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins or contract any of her plagues. For her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. The cry of heaven is heard again.  Come out of her.

He will restore those who repent of the compromise to royalty.  

1 Peter 2:9  You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

That is the heart of God for 2017 -  it is restoration of who HE is and who WE are in HIM.

Come apart from them

 This is the day where people will have to make the choice between serving God or Serving Baal.  No there aren't Baal temples on every corner but the principles are there.  The choice will make it hard for many to make the decision to leave the past behind and enter into a better future.

Father is rewarding those who choose to live by his word.  His word is clear. You have to be intentionally blind to ignore those things that are of the sour fruit of the evil one.

Yet there are many people who attend church, dance, shout, pray (even in tongues), and confess Jesus as Lord yet find themselves connected with those who support all forms of ungodly activity and principles.  Demonic Deception.

Compromised Christianity is manifested in the earth.
When the idea of homosex marriage came along, many so called Christians accepted it as a cultural norm.  Some Christians rejected it.. but in the end it was considered OK by those already compromised.  Same with abortion, not good but accepted. The law of the land.  Same with multicultural intolerance of Christianity and the embracing of Islam .. the slope became more slippery.  Then legalized marijuana... well we have to keep up.  Lawless acts were excused on the altar of social justice. Pedophilia made easier by laws and homosexual curriculum in schools. Marriage replaced with shacking up and large numbers of single parent households resulted.. and this in the church. Then when during the last year when corruption was revealed at the highest level, those compromised excused it with the idea that "Everybody does it".   What has resulted is a cultural form of Christianity that is apostate.  Stands for nothing and falls for everything.  The plumb line of righteous living is no longer observed.  It's not even seen.  We are out of kilter.

The result of this is a schizophrenic cult of Christianity aligned with people groups and factions who do things they disapprove of at least in principle but to whom they remain loyal to for no godly reason.  Father is calling for the compromised to come out from among them.  The road to perdition and eventual collapse for believers is paved with good intentions and misplaced loyalty.

There is a great divide coming and in 2017 will manifest itself in radical new ways.  Those who have been compromised will have to make a hard decision.  It will be painful.  There will be scars.  But when a cancer is removed it leaves a mark.  Some will be repentance.  Some will be shame.  The year to come, 2017, will create a clear line of demarcation.  The compromised will be forced to choose between darkness and light, good and evil, Baal and God. 

Yet there are those who will hold to the old and not come out from among them who will form the Whore Church of our day.  Revelation 17 speaks of this.. it happened in the past and will again.  But we are in this place once more.  All prophecy moves in long deep cycles.  The devil has no new strategies.  We must be aware of those he uses now.  We can see how this looks in the empty forms of godliness that makes up many mainline denominations.
