First I want to say, I am aware this post will not be a popular post, and may even cost me some relationships. It is what it is. I resolved a long time ago that I will not be the “most popular” voice in the sphere in which I am in. Such is the life of a reformer. I do none of what I do to please others in the body, the world, or among my peers. I do it because it is what He has called me to do.
Secondly, I want to say that I have sent this word to several apostolic and prophetic leaders and peers, as I wanted to get their input before releasing it. Unanimously they said they believed it was the word of the Lord, and needed to be released.
Let me also say that I realize the intensity of this word and the seriousness of it. I felt it the entire time the Lord was giving it to me.
I have not shared very much recently regarding the current events, simply because I have not heard much from the Lord on the matter…not since I heard Him say we would need to “Hold the Line” on Nov 2nd. I have stood on what He spoke to me at that time, and have continued to do just that, even though many may not have understood that stand.
I have been in prayer for the last 2 weeks, yet still, I didn’t hear much except the same. I simply prayed what I felt He wanted me to pray and held the line. My spirit has been troubled, as I shared last week. As I have also shared over the last month, I truly have sensed that we were at a pivotal time in the history of our nation…much like when General Washington and his troops were at Valley Forge. I sensed that if God didn’t come through in some miraculous way, much of what was destined to happen for and in this nation, would not happen, or would be delayed tremendously. The enemy is intensely wanting to change the times and seasons right now.
During this time, I have watched very little television, if any, nor did I read many articles about what was happening. I simply did not want to have the influence or distraction, and also because there was much confusion going on, sadly even among those within the body of Christ and the prophetic realm.
Yesterday morning, I was in prayer again, after not enough sleep the night before. I felt truly disturbed at what I was sensing, but couldn’t put my finger on exactly why? I sensed a strong battle taking place in the spirit, and honestly, it was hard to get clarity on exactly what was happening. After quite a while, and not hearing anything, I finally picked up my phone to read something that a friend had sent me. As I did so, I saw 2 articles about things that were happening that morning in the natural in the nation, mainly regarding what the outgoing and incoming administrations were doing. I only saw the headlines and did not read them, nor see any pictures.
I laid my phone down, and desperately cried out to the Lord, with tears in my eyes…”Lord, I need to hear from you about this”! I cannot fully describe what I felt at that moment, only to say that I sensed the darkness encroaching in a massive way. I then saw in the spirit, certain people laughing, in a very evil and sinister way, as well as some of the evil that was planning to be released soon. I wept bitterly, and then…I felt something else. A righteous anger began to rise within me, and I knew it was not my own! At that moment, I heard the Lord speak with such authority and fierceness that it shook me to my core. I honestly began to weep even more, and shake from the inside out, as what He was saying began to reverberate through me.
First I heard the Lord say several times, with much intensity ~ I WILL NOT BE MOCKED!
I said, “No Lord…you will not be!”
I then heard the Lord say:
“I hear them laugh, and congratulate themselves on their win. But I will have the last say…and the last laugh. (Psalm 2) They sat on a pew in a place that was supposedly meant for worship but be assured they do not worship Me, they do not serve Me…but their own power, greed, and lies, and indeed the father of lies, that old dragon himself. They mock Me in what they do and say, but I will not be mocked for long!
Be assured, they will reap what they have sown, for again I tell you… I WILL NOT be mocked! That which has been sown in lies and deceit, in hate and murder, and all manner of evil…they will reap it upon their own heads! They think they have won, but I the Lord God Almighty, the Lord of the Angel Armies, am working in ways that no one sees and no one knows. I alone raise up Kings, and I put them down!
Even as the King called Belshazzar did centuries ago, so have they lifted up themselves against the Lord of heaven, and they have mocked Me, the Maker of heaven and earth…and now they have been weighed in My balances of justice, and they have been found very wanting. (Daniel 5) I have seen their unjust scales, their manipulations, and cunning plans for power…but I am the Lord God Almighty, and ALL power belongs to Me! They think their plots and plans have succeeded, but I know all, and I see all, and I can thwart and overthrow even the greatest masterminds and schemes on earth.
In My abundant mercy, I had to give them time and a chance to humble themselves and change their minds and retract…but they did not. My grace was extended, but it was refused. They refuse to turn away from their lies and deceit, they refuse to humble themselves…and now they are mocking Me in their deeds and words.
Their hearts have been hardened like Pharaoh, and like Pharaoh, they have determined to do the desires of their own depraved minds, and the desires put there by the evil one. And like Pharaoh, I have given them chance after chance to retract and step back from their evil ways…but they have refused. They continue with their evil plots and plans. Therefore, now My judgments will be swift and sharp.
Know that I have heard the cries of My people, of the oppressed, the hurting, the most innocent among you…crying out for justice. Their cries have come before Me like a mighty chorus, pleading for justice. I have also heard the cries of My remnant, cries for mercy, and for this land to not be turned to desolation. Many have cried day and night…and do not think I have not heard your cries! My ear is not deaf that it cannot hear, and My hand is not short that it cannot reach.
I have heard the cries, and I the Lord your God will answer them. I will answer them for the sake of My remnant, and for the sake of the covenants that have been made with Me, both old and new. I am a covenant-keeping God, and though man may forget, I do not forget. I am God, and I do not change!
I will render My justice from heaven in ways you have not yet seen. I have said it before, and I say it again ~ I will do a thing, and the ears of all who hear it will tingle! You have prayed, you have cried, you have interceded, and declared…Now sit back and watch Me move!
My angels are positioned even now and are being sent forth at My command – to expose, to uncover, and to bring My holy judgments to those who have stood against Me in defiance and pride. My holy judgments will be seen throughout this land, and you will know that it is I that do this thing!
As My judgments flow, the fear of who I am will be known, most especially among My people! You will know and recognize that no one can do what I can do! No person, no leader, no one can do what I alone can do. When the enemy does his best, and he has…then My Spirit comes in like a wave and crushes all of his best-made plans in mere moments. This fear of Me, and awe of what I alone can do, and the judgments that I alone can render, will cause great revival to spring up in many areas of this nation.
Exposure after exposure and judgment after judgment will now be seen in the land…and that which has been sown in darkness and evil will be reaped upon their own heads. The time is now…for I am God alone, and I WILL NOT be mocked!
I am a God of justice and holiness, I am a God of mercy and love. I say sit back, My remnant warriors, and watch what I alone can do! Sit back, and you will see My justice as it rolls across this land like a mighty river!”
