Dear brothers and sisters,
I am recounting here, at the Lord’s request, this new Word He would have me deliver to you this day. I will share it the same way it was given to me.
This morning, Oct.22/2022, while spending alone time with Father, He spoke these words over me:
Jer.6:27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.
This was followed by a warning:
Jer.1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.
I understand that it is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. And believe me, Father has put enough fear of Him in me to know not to hold any of His Words back, whether any will listen or not. Perhaps, by me standing in His council and proclaiming His words to His people, they will turn from their evil deeds and be saved.
The Word I bring you today is entitled, ‘RETURN TO THE ANCIENT PATH’.
Jer.6:16a) Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
Since the Lord has called me to minister before Him in 2020, the Holy Spirit has directed my main focus to believers whether true abiding Christians who are cleaved unto the narrow path and His covenant, or professing Christians.
Professing Christians are those described in
Isa.29:13, ‘Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men.’
These are the ones who’d wear a name tag that says ‘Christian’ on it to be identified as one of His followers as their works don’t match up. These are the ones who love to speak the name of the Lord, quote scriptures whether they understand their true meaning or not. They love lengthy prayers in public but inside are empty, whitewashed tombs!
Thus saith the Lord, hear the Word of the Lord.
Isa.30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin.
This message is primarily to these ‘professing Christians’ who may have lost their way, need a reminder, perhaps to be pointed the right direction. The Lord is inviting you today to stop the charade, stop playing games and to come to Him humbly and without delay.
For this is the one I esteem, he who is humble and contrite in Spirit and trembles at my Word.
Come out of Babylon -the wicked, adulterous, false churches. Come unto my Ancient Path. Abandon the doctrines of men taught in most of your churches. Come and have fellowship with my Spirit.
1 John 2:27 BUT THE ANOINTING WHICH YE HAVE RECEIVED OF HIM ABIDETH IN YOU, AND YE NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
If the anointing that is in you is from the Spirit of God, then you do NOT need someone else to teach you, but rather be taught by God’s Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the author of God’s Word and who better than Him would be able to teach us all His perfect ways!?
John 16:12-13 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of TRUTH, is come, he will guide you into ALL truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
Brothers and sisters,
this is my testimony. I spent 30 years in the Pentecostal church only to be taken out of Babylon and into the sole fellowship of God’s Spirit. I had to learn to SEEK Father, to wrestle with Him. My desires had to change and want MORE THAN ANYTHING an authentic relationship with Him. He took me aside. I spent more than 2 years in my closet learning at Jesus’ feet. That’s where I learned His voice, the way He likes to speak to me. That’s where my eyes were opened. He gave me a NEW identity and A NEW NAME! I am His Daughter – the Daughter of the King of Kings!! He removed false doctrines from my heart and replaced them with His truths from His Word. Hence why, now I can stand here as a witness and proclaim from the rooftops to FLEE BABYLON, FLEE MAN’S SYSTEMS, FLEE THE FALSE CHURCHES.
But how can one know whether a church is false or not if no time is invested to sit at the Master’s table and be fed from His hand, craving His intimacy that will transform you from the inside out – the TRUE renewal of our minds and breaking away from the patterns of the world?
Note how much of the world has infiltrated the church and how many are calling evil good and good evil. Remember :
Matt.7: 13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
So, if you see all your family and friends heading the same direction, chances are you are going the wrong way and are on the wide path rather than the narrow one.
Separate yourself from the traditions, rituals, habits. Come, taste and see that the Lord is good and that blessed is the man that trusts in Him.
The Word of God is a mine FULL of precious treasures. Withdraw yourself to your secret place, invite the Lord’s presence and learn to dine with Him. Quiet yourself. Try to block out all external noises so you can hear Him ministering to your soul. This skill is vital especially during the times we are living in. Come tomorrow when you will become disconnected from your family, friends, peers, favourite ministers you will need to navigate on your own. And if you’re used to asking others for their advise you will be in grave danger. Fill your lamp with the oil of the Holy Spirit NOW!
2 Tim.3:16-17 ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Note the Word ‘ALL’ in the above verses means both NEW and OLD Testaments. One of the false doctrine I have encountered is this belief that with Jesus’ death the Old Testament has been dealt with and no longer relevant; that things like the Sabbath and the Lord’s Feasts no longer need to be celebrated. Wasn’t the Lord the one who commanded these things? Isn’t Jesus the full Word of God that became flesh and dwelled among men? How can we say we love the Lord and then deny His direction:
John 15: 9-10 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; EVEN AS I HAVE KEPT MY FATHER’S COMMANDMENTS, and abide in his love.
If, when Jesus spoke these words, the New Testament hadn’t been written yet, then which commandments did Jesus follow from the Father?
In our modern churches it is a common practice to regurgitate false doctrines that have emerged from the pit of hell. Satan loves to see complacent people sitting in pews; people that will not contest with what the pastor says and to their own peril fail to study these things on their own.
One reason why people nowadays cannot hear God’s voice is because they harbour idolatry. They worship the Lord with their mouths but their hearts are too busy chasing the pleasures of this world. They run like a hampster on a wheel, chasing their tails and they refuse to quiet their souls and plug into the Master’s voice. But will their idols save them on the day of disaster?
Some of these people say things like, ‘I want to be Jesus’ hands and feet’ but are highly uninformed as to what that means. Jesus lived His life in TOTAL submission to Father, even to the point of death on a cross. If you want to be His disciple, know then that no student is greater than His Master. Nowadays, people have this strange mentality that the Lord is some sort of genie that accomodates their wishes; that life will be easier as a believer. Then when life’s storms come battering down on their homes, their foundations are tested and found to be faulty, they’re faced with pain, anxiety, distress, and unknowns, they bail out without as much as a prayer to ask for direction. A lot of the blame for this goes to our wellness gospel pastors who fail to prepare their respective congregations. If you want to truly live a life pleasing the Almighty God, then know that you will be mocked, rebuked, scorned, humbled, spat at, betrayed, suffer pain (physically, emotionally and spiritually).
Heb.10:36-38 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Rev.12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.
At this point the Lord would have me go back to where this Word started and finish off quoting Jer.6:16b) which says, “But they said, We will not walk therein.”
The Lord wants me to tell you that many of you listening to this will go and roll yourself back in the mud for you hate sound counsel. This Word is primarily for you; an invitation to CHANGE the way you’re living and to stop being complacent. GO AND SIN NO MORE. What does ‘reborn of the Spirit mean’? It means that you stop following your carnal ways, the ways of your flesh; that you separate yourself from the world and walk according to Father’s Laws.
Note that much of the world has infiltrated the churches. Without God’s discernment you will not be able to see in the spiritual realm and distinguish those things the Lord calls good and those He calls evil.
RETURN TO MY ANCIENT PATH, says the Lord. Read my Old Testament, see how the people of Israel sought after other gods, often committed adultery with them and caused my anger to burn, forcing my hand to be raised against them in punishment. Read the book of Judges. Read Jer.21 and see how I sent the Babylonians after my people Israel and brought them into captivity for defying MY LAWS.
Those of my people who are sold out for me have come into My fellowship, left behind the world and its pleasures. They’ve allowed me to strip them of their impurities. On their hearts, I have engraved my Laws.
Jer.31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I WILL PUT MY LAW IN THEIR INWARD PARTS, AND WRITE IT IN THEIR HEARTS; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Look at what the Antichrist will do:
Dan.11:30b)-32 HE SHALL be grieved, and return, and HAVE INDIGNATION AGAINST THE HOLY COVENANT: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. 31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: BUT THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG, AND DO EXPLOITS.
Jer.9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that HE understandeth and KNOWETH ME, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: FOR IN THESE THINGS I DELIGHT, saith the Lord.
I conclude with this vision given to me while praying over this word.
I saw this woman with this exaggerated smile on her face and wearing this long filthy garment from which this tar-like material was dripping from.
I was given understanding that this woman represented these people in the church who are satisfied with their lives and are proud about their worldly accomplishments. But have neglected cleansing their garments to ready themselves for the Lord’s return so much so that they are in denial.
Like her, many think that going to church, reading My Word leisurely, praying their shopping lists indicate that they are my disciples. Do you remember where my Temple is? Where my presence resides? In the hearts of those who are humble, contrite in Spirit and tremble at my Word. THOSE WHO KNOW ME.
