Sounding the Warning…
For thus saith the Lord:
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, and over your city (Jerusalem); and day and night these watchmen (these prayer warriors and intercessors) keep at it, praying, calling out to Me, reminding Me to remember, and they are to give God no peace until he does as he says…” (Isaiah 62:6-7)
“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
For thus says the Lord ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it‘”. (Isaiah 55:6-7)
We as believers must learn to tap into the supernatural power of God, for these days in which we are living are becoming increasingly foreboding and ominous!
As we are told in scripture:
Withstand (the devil); be firm in faith [against his onset] rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace…will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen (and settle) you. – 1 Peter 5:9-10
The pressures that most people are living under today are growing increasingly worse, as most of those earthly things that we have always counted on for security and for peace of mind are slowly being taken away from us.
We are in those times of which Jesus warned us about, that He described as being like the birth pains of a woman in labor.
Jesus has unequivocally warned us in His Word that this time would be the worst ever, and that nothing before or after will ever be able to be compared to it!
This warning is for OUR benefit, for as Satan once ask for Peter, that he might sift him as wheat; you will note that Jesus’ response was not to say He would prevent his testing from happening, but rather Jesus said that He would pray for Peter that His faith fails not!
Like wise God is directing that same message to us today. These are troubled waters that God has directed our ship into, for we are not built for safe harbors, but rather we are made to be launched out into the deep.
It is in these deep waters where Jesus and the Holy Spirit hang out; and if we are going to be a part of what they are doing in these last days, in the flow of their anointing, then we had better prepare ourselves to be launched out to where they are!
Satan is putting more pressure on more people right now than ever before. He’s pressuring people in every way, mentally, financially, emotionally and in every other way that you can possibly think.
This pressure of late is on the increase, and it has gotten to the point that even governments are at a loss for what they should do; businesses don’t know what to do; and even families who are not rooted and grounded in faith are at a lost as to what they should do; but we in the Church have been given our road map (in the Bible) and our instructions by the Spirit!
The Bible clearly instructs us in the way which we shall go; and we can truly praise God because Jesus knows exactly where we are today, in ALL of our struggles; He knows what lies up ahead; and He has already gone before us to prepare the way for us!
We are told in Amos 3:7 that “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without He reveals his plans to his servants the prophets,” and just as he did with the prophets of old, God is still today speaking and guiding us, through not only His written Word, but also through His prophets as well.
The problem is in most denominational churches today they do not believe in the supernatural; and some even have said that the Gifts of the Spirit have died out with the Apostles, but that is NOT what God has said in His Word!
In 1st Thessalonians 5, in verses 19-20, we are clearly admonished to NOT despise prophecies, least we quench the Holy Spirit; but rather we are instructed to test all things; and hold fast to that which is good!
Haven’t you noticed that our minds are very much like parachutes, in that they only work when they are open, meaning that we are teachable?!
God’s written Word serves as our road map and our written guide of instruction in the ways of the Lord, while the Holy Spirit is our Spiritual Guide, who illuminates the written Word; He empowers us in our ministry; and He directs our path… and it is imperative that we, in these very troubled times, learn how to be sensitive to the leading of His still small voice!
We need both the Word and the Spirit activated in our lives today, or we as the church won’t even begin to be able to handle and cope with all the onslaughts that the enemy is bringing upon the world in these last days.
God has promised us in His Word that in times like this, that He would raise up a standard against Satan and all the powers of hell, but that standard is only being built up through the work of the Holy Spirit, in His church! Selah
God has warned us in His Word what things would be like in the Last Days, and one of the main things He warned us about was that many in the church would deny the Power of the Holy Spirit… and people this is a BIG mistake!
2 Timothy 3
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.
And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8
Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
What did Paul say about how we in the church need to be prepared?
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
In these troubled times it is extremely important that we stop trying to fight this enemy that has so consumed and taken over both our world and even our government in our flesh; that we stop attempting to do our battles through carnal means; that we stop evaluating what we are seeing in the world, according to man’s interpretation, though these false prophets of today, as seen on the evening news; but rather we must begin to see things afresh, from Gods perspective, through the eyes of the Spirit!
Below is a prophecy that was given by one of today’s prophets, who has a track record and history of being very accurate.
Check it, and pray about it… and see what the Lord might be saying to you today!
Two Witnesses: Truth vs. Heresy
A prophetic word from Bob Jones
True and False Witnesses: Bob was told there will be two witnesses to what God is going to do. These two will be the old and the young and they will both speak out the truth.
Satan will also have two witnesses – the young and the old speaking, and both will speak out heresy.
God’s truth will be established with the true witnesses and Satan will establish untruth or heresy by his false witnesses.
The two true witnesses will be young children and the old (or those who are over fifty), who will both bring messages of truth. So don’t discourage children when they speak, instead listen to them. Their conscience is clean and they speak out of a pure unadulterated spirit.
Satan’s Witnesses: Floods and Destructive Winds – Some of these truths will be established by demonstration of fire and water.
The things Satan will be permitted to do will result in fire and water like floods, severe rain, mudslides, forest fires and extreme heat.
Satan will send floods in areas where he’s permitted – if intercessors don’t raise up against it.
There will be many signs in the heavens and in the earth that the natural eye can see, like rain and wind.
Satan’s two witnesses will bring floods and destructive winds. Everything that happens for good, Satan will send a counterfeit.
Destruction by the enemy can be stopped by intercession. The storm at sea that the Lord rebuked had demons behind them. These things can be stopped if we rebuke them.
We can determine which way it’s going to go. John Crying Out in the Desert in the third chapter of Matthew’s Gospel clearly describes the two witnesses.
John is baptizing in the wilderness of Judea saying “repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”
John was the voice crying out in the wilderness preparing the way of the Lord; and the people from Jerusalem, Judea and the region around Jordan came to the Jordan River confessing their sins and being water baptized by John.
Here John gives evidence of the two witnesses. He calls the Pharisees and Sadducees a brood of vipers.
They were inspired by Satan in order to spread evil, deceit and heresy.
Their intentions were to turn people away from the one true God while those being baptized by water into repentance bore witness to God.
Baptisms of Water and Fire
These are two witnesses: the baptisms of water and fire – the baptism of water unto repentance and the baptism of fire unto sanctification.
Water baptism is repentance from the old nature, and in the baptism of fire God removes everything from us that is not of Him; and all of our self-centered desires are surrendered unto Him.
Jesus defended His self-witness while speaking to the Pharisees when He said, “I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me” (John 8:18).
Likewise, the two true witnesses (both old and young) bear witness of the baptism of water and fire, bringing forth a message of truth. Their words will be in one accord with the Father to establish His truth in the earth.
Jesus said, “It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true” (John 8:17).
In the same way Jesus, as an earthbound man, bore testimony of the Father in Heaven; so will the old and young earthbound witnesses bear testimony of the Truth establishing “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
Soul and Spirit God is raising up a company of Elisha’s, both young and old, who bear witness to the Cross of Jesus Christ. They are led by the Spirit of Truth and carry the message of repentance unto salvation and the baptism of fire.
Baptism of water is death of the old man while the baptism of fire burns away every ungodly thought and desire of the flesh. Then the body, soul and spirit are in complete unity with the Father.
Right now Satan is bearing witness of immorality and mockery. There’s a strong spirit of mockery coming out now and it hardens the heart where man cannot find Christ.
Yet we know that Jesus was the Word that bore witness; the Word was with Him (John 1:14).
Christ was also two witnesses because the witness is in the Word and the witness was in Him.
We are both soul and spirit; and now our soul must first agree with our spirit for us to get saved.
It is a commandment that we get water baptized. Then our spirit man will reign over us.
These two bear witness that Christ has come in the flesh.
