Much loss and opportunity ahead
June 15, 2020
Recently, I lost a Sister on the 7th and my beloved feline companion of nearly 17 years on the 13th. Loss has been all around me. Since December of 2019, I have lost many other people in my family, friends, and distant cousins. During this same time, many good and abundant things have been happening: opportunities to witness Christ to the lost among the top of the list. And he has provided my need in a sun-scorched land. Tragedies become times when there is an open door, the guards are down, people are more vulnerable, more thinking about the fragile nature of life and limb. So, I have shared my journey of my response to death and dying on social media and on this website.
Yesterday and today has been brewing this word. Oft times God uses the situation in a prophetic person’s life to bless the church as a whole. This message I am giving today is for the whole church. It is a bittersweet message. Read it through. See what he is saying. Let him reason. Come let us reason together, says the Lord.
Isaiah 1:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Here is the word to the church:
Expect much loss to come my children, all around you, but none will fatally affect those whom I have ordained & chosen for this hour for the purposes for which I have chosen them. To he who has an ear, let him hear.
Isaiah 55:8-9 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Do not be caught unaware. Listen closely to avoid danger. Obey. I will weave you through-in and around the obstacles of natural disasters, plague, pestilence, disease, infirmity, harm, and unnecessary lack. You will not succeed at your missions if you do not listen. But remember, I am merciful and kind and know those ahead of time who will make what mistake in regards to things. I can quickly restore .
But keep on praying, keep on seeking, keep on knocking and the door will be opened.
Matthew 7:7 New Living Translation (NLT)
7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
I will provide the needs of my people-especially my sent ones-in a sun scorched land.
Isaiah 58:11 New Living Translation
The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
If you humbly walk with me I will provide and protect. Confess your sins as you remember them. Clean your blood-bought account daily. Do not let the sun go down on your wrath-or your sins. Help one another in this. You know what to do. Choose wisely.
James 5:16 King James Version (KJV)16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
You are the temple of my Holy Spirit. I work through Holy and redeemed vessels , so run to me, for I am quick to forgive. I am on your side. Fight hard against willful sin as it’s reach encroaches more and more on the things you held so normal and dear for so long. All being stripped away. You must make your own new normal in me. Pray for those you see caught in it’s grasp. Remember if you share in my suffering, you will also share in my glory. I am on your side.
James 4:7 New Living Translation
So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
For those of you with great complications and wounding in certain areas, be of good courage. I discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart. I will help you if you ask. I show mercy to the fragmented ones with addictions and the mentally challenged who need the churches embrace for wholeness but are not getting it.
Hebrews 4:12 New Living Translation
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
I know where mercy and grace are best applied and where I pull them back to motivate you as you see the power of sin and separation from me. Stay the course. I will deliver you.
Proverbs 24:16-18 New Living Translation (NLT) 16 The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. 17 Don’t rejoice when your enemies fall;
don’t be happy when they stumble.
18 For the Lord will be displeased with you
and will turn his anger away from them.
Forgive yourselves. Remember we reap what we sow. Forgiveness is by faith. Your flesh and soul will suffer the immediate consequence of sin, but this does not mean you are not forgiven if you sincerely ask from a willing heart to make better choices the next time. The consequence means you see the wages of sin so you can be motivated toward purity in Christ. Have hope. Keep going. Keep on. Tell me the truth. I can work with the truth. Respect my presence and I will respect your situation and struggle.
The remorse to sin shows you are still mine! For if you were reprobate you would feel nothing, and your consciences would be seared. But rejoice in the fact that your hearts are not hardened. Remember, your adversary roams about like a Lion seeking whom he may devour. Now more than ever. It grieves me that my children would trade their blood-bought covenant in me into the Kingdom of God for the counterfeit fleeting rewards of the world. You are warned that the adversary is coming now in increase, so that you have time to prepare. Hear the alarms sounding! Sometimes they are silent, but known. I don’t always do things in a flashy way. I have my purposes. And they will be fulfilled as my plans for you will.
Many fall around you. In death, in disease, in pestilence, in lack, in sin. A great opportunity and open door to comfort those who mourn, preach repentance of sins, Death will be so great at times that it is commonplace all around you as I take many home now to save them from the terrors to come. As well as mixed in are the final judgments for many who would not repent and this day their life was required of them.
Not all can withstand the level of increase in the judgments as I dial it up to it’s appointed intensity. It is my love that brings them close to me now. They will be safe in me. Help to bring these in. MANY death bed conversions are coming! You can be a part of that! There are plenty of places to harvest souls! It’s plentiful! All of heaven is excited! Not all have the same calling. Whether someone is like Enoch or just a new arrival into the Kingdom, the angels rejoice when I bring them home at their appointed time. Now to the readers with an ear, hear! For this message, I write to my servants the prophets and prophetic ones.
Have a new attitude toward death and dying and grief. Grieve as you may and as you must, but do not let grief be hopeless, for of what good is that for any of you? But in your grieving repent and get life. In this way you will keep your emotional slate clean and in order. I gave you emotions for a reason. Express them. They are a release valve for the pressure and wounding of your souls. Groans that I understand. Weeping and wailing I am much acquainted with and understand. They must come out of you. Many are sick and miserable because you push down your emotions. Still others feel them with little expression and have relief. But for those to whom this is written, you will know. Give them to me. I will help you. Express them, release them and then choose a vision or dream that I give you to think upon.
Hold hope up along with grief. Do not let grief swallow you. For you are not as one without hope. For those that have gone on before that know me are safe in me. See them here! I gave you wonderful imaginations! It’s ok to dream of Heaven! It’s okay to imagine what it will be like! And I will give you gifts now as foretaste and deposit of what is to come. Think on those things. If you can have this attitude about dying and death and grief I will able to use you more during the times when death is widespread, or for natural disasters or just times when you will know many to pass one after the other, quickly. Many times-no warning. In this way be as soldiers. There will be times when you must collectively grieve. Do not think you are insincere in these times. For you must prioritize. There is a time for everything under the sun. In order for you sensitive ones to make it through these times, you must be strong in me and the strength of my might. I can give you the sword to use in order to divide your way through the jungle of loss coming. And you will need each other. You have instructions on that.
Have this hope in me that you overcome the beast system and the world by my blood and by the word and testimony of me, Jesus. You are my hands and feet, my heart in the world. You are the salt of the earth and the my light shines in you and through you. As I abide in you, I give you the gift of compassion. With the acts of compassion comes the emotion of compassion. Discipline the flesh. Stir up the gifts. Many are foreign to this and I will visit you on this if you invite me.
Warning: Be careful with my little lambs! Treat them as you would me! I was acquainted with much grief on the earth. I did not turn away from the broken hearted.
I escaped the crowds and danger until is was the appointed time to give my life willingly. I strategized as a commander. We are in a greater battle than ever. If you don’t fight the spiritual dark forces with my sword, you may become stagnate and be tempted by the coming great counterfeit cloud of glory. It is better to be on fire, for the lukewarm I will spit from my mouth. You either gather with me or scatter. I help you in this. Only ask and wait! And renew your wings as Eagle’s wings. And once renewed you will soar with the winds of change and see all clearly. If you ask me for bread, would I give you a stone? No. Unless you need the stone to grind your own grain. Remember my unfailing love and loyalty to you. There is a learning curve for all things and I am the keeper of the curve.
