Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2
As was shared in an earlier post, the Lord warned, “Some things are going to happen shortly that will alarm many; but I want you to rest in Me, and seek My counsel and wisdom. You will see things no one could imagine. I am with you to the end of this age. Be at peace, because I am with you.”
Exactly one month before the attacks on Paris, the Lord spoke further on this subject saying: “When people do what is right in their own eyes, wickedness abounds.1 You see it daily on the news. The plans that the tribes of mankind have made to ‘seize the day for peace’ will fail miserably. Their plans are not peaceful, so they are deceived. They give rise to wickedness as has never been seen on the earth – and that is saying a lot! History reveals that mankind is capable of great cruelty and selfishness. Go back to where the days of Noah are chronicled and read.”
Genesis 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
“What you see spreading in the Middle East is going to be exponential in its growth. ISIS is appealing to the youth and using social media to fuel the fire. Hearken to my voice, and I will give you strategies for prayer. You must pray and teach others how to pray in a manner of urgency as if your own son or daughter had become one of them.
“The days are evil, and it is vital to stay vigilant. The worst deception is for one to think he/she is fighting for Me, yet does everything against what I have taught. Be a doer of My word. Speak life over yourself and others.2 Be quick to recognize when small matters seek to become big one, and don’t give them power over you or My church. Be on guard for this by asking yourself what conversation, comment, or subject is worth discussing in the light of eternity. Will your words bring peace? Will they bring people into My kingdom? Will your words cause the hearer to be pricked of heart to the point of repentance so that I can redeem them? If it doesn’t, you are not building on rock but sand.
“Deception is growing and the masses reel to and fro. They are swayed by the currents, eddies, and tides. This should not be so for My people. They are to keep vigilant and fight to remain in the flow of My Spirit.
“Right now, many of those calling themselves ‘Christian’ have so much mixture in their beliefs, that they are completely void of My Spirit.3Persecution of the church has also been seen recently, and this will weed out the tares growing in the wheat.4 People won’t give up their selfish lives for Jesus if they can’t say His name without hesitation. They won’t die for a Man whose name they use as an expletive.
“The calling on the name of Jesus for salvation must flow from one’s heart. I desire for all mankind to be saved. Every sin has been accounted for, but for one to be saved, one must bring their sin and lay it at the altar as one would deposit money into a bank.”5
