End Times Vision Tommy Hicks

TOMMY HICKS’ END-TIMES VISION.

 The Body Of Christ Vision

Revivalist: Tommy Hicks July 25th, 1961

My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada.

I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the revelation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end time ministries. The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times. I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong. They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go. The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man’s name and the woman’s name and said, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies.” Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people. To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God. 

In the book of Acts we read that “In the last days,” God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.”

I wonder if we realize what he meant when God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -” (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God! As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembling as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder. As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back. All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds. Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known.

As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, “Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this.” and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep. And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord. At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white – the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world – men and women – as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord. I do not know how long I watched it.

It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere. I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth! And this is the miracle of it – this is the glorious miracle of it – those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, “According to my word, be thou made whole.” As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, “What is the meaning of this?” And he said, “This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpiller – I will restore all. that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth.

 As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth.” As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them. Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah! 

As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the endtimes.

 … these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message. God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no “big I” and “little you,” but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common – there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time. 

As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, “I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,” and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it.

  We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders,

but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o’clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a “do-nothing, an unheard-of,” who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body.” I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, “Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!” And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle. Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, “Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride.” And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of. But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, “This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time.” 

As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north,

and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, “Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth.” From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God’s wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction. I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up. They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries – the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before. My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, “I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done.”

Of Heathen Gods, Lords, and Kings.

Of Heathen gODS, Lords, and Kings, July 4th, 2016

Extended version.

25 years ago I had a dream. The political figure in the dream is now at the peak of world prominence as a front runner for the president of the United States of America. The following is what I know of the dream and its message.

Romans 2:7-8

To those who by perseverance in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow wickedness, there will be wrath and anger.

The revelation of Jesus Christ tells us He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords!  HIS mantle of authority, resting on the Church, billows in the wind of shifting powers; grimly reminding heathen gods, Lords, and kings, there is only one Lord of all!

25 years ago the Lord gave me a dream that is in its season now. I saw a television audience watching a famous husband and wife working out their commitment with one another. The wife needed deliverance from satanic oppression, and this was on a very public platform. I could see many notable people watching, and they were amused of it all, while viewing the couple on center stage in front of them. The famous couple were none other than-  the Head of the Church who is Christ, and His body, the Church.

Ephesians 5:23

  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the SAVIOR of the body.

While the Lord was working on their relationship as husband and wife, the wife began to shake- the Lord himself rebuked an evil spirit from off of her,  a mighty wind and tempest blew through her, and then a red cape was ripped up from off of the wife and she was delivered of harlotries.

The husband who was Christ (in the dream) became so intent and focused upon (his wife) the Church- that she began to tremble in HIS gaze. While this happened the evil spirit dusted up and showed itself upon her, so HE took authority over the evil spirit, as the woman (Church) began to shake uncontrollably.

Once more I will shake all that can be shaken …

As soon as the spirit lifted off of her the audience was astonished as it was exposed in full disclosure over them, violently shaking over the audience with ecstatic motion and peals of thunder!

The audience was shocked and started to scream, horrified at this wicked spirit above them, for now they knew it was a supernatural manifestation. Seemingly, they finally saw with their own eyes what the’ve always heard about. That Satan is real.

Among them, I saw two women wearing the exact same kind of red mantle upon their shoulders that was the same mantle driven out of the church, and was now ripping around in a wild current of air above the people.

One of the women was at the hight of her career in media at the time of the dream, and the other a very present and most prominent figure in politics now! 

None other have surpassed what these two women have accomplished so far; politically or media wise. For they both [ Americans] have had the attention of world prominence and royalty, for decades. They have an agreement or commonality with this power ripping in the air that was once concealed, but now stands revealed above the audience for what it is. Appearing as a sign and wonder above.

These two women became astonished, along with the horrified audience of the TEMPEST above them, while the couple representing Christ and His Church remained on center stage- under the lights; no longer battered by the wind and its torrents that violently ripped the red cape around. The storm tossing this diabolical inhabitant was now over the secular assembly, media, and political figures.

Christ and HIS Church remained on center stage under the lights, while the tempest stormed above the audience, and the two women.

1 Peter 16-17

if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear this name. it is time for judgement to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who disobey the gospel of God?

..Romans 8:19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

Isaiah 60:1


Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, great darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people. But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your DAWN.

HIS GLORY SHALL BE SEEN UPON YOU! The Gentiles shall come to your light! Who is our light? Jesus is the light of the world. The nations will be coming to Christ, Kings will see the Church as a glorious rising star to give honor to, and seek favor from. For she is contrasting the darkness that is in the world, and will be a presence that cannot be ignored. The glory of God is upon her. The Hope and Glory with in, Christ who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

Many will break out of the ranks to greet her, while many others will slip into the night to avoid CHRIST IN HER, THE ANOINTED ONE, the hope and glory, who releases heavy bondages.

While the Church rising, continues in her great commission to go out into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature; with signs following those that believe, in Jesus name; speaking with new tongues, casting out devils, healing the sick, raising the dead, and demonstrating supernatural power- until that which is PERFECT comes.

Clash of Kingdoms

Satan knows his time is short. The mantle of the Lord, his power, his authority, is literally causing realms to crash into one another like subatomic plates beneath the ground. It is a seismic activity, the earth knows what comes near, and the magnitude of HIS appearing in the earth is like a gravitational pull upon land and sea, the shaking that awakens sleepers.

That anointing [walked in] causes the earth to groan for more and more of His manifest presence to present itself- Christ in us the HOPE and GLORY. Jesus: Who was, is, and is to come.

As the demoniacs cried out at the passing of Jesus when he walked this earth, so also, the transformation of HIS righteous ones in high places of prayer, and natural position, and occupation- is truly causing perversions of every kind, from every sector, to boil up as the cancerous lesions they are; shocking and appalling, to those who have not been aware of how much corruption is in the governments of this world. As the people are entering into a state of repulsion, realizing the snare they have been ensnared with- being deeply troubled by the depravity they are seeing around them- they will continue to ask, “Has the world gone mad, and how can I escape this madness?”

While the delusional in rapid decent are being given over to a reprobate mind- they will continue to call good evil, and evil good, much to the astonishment of those whose eyes have been opened around them. Not only does the emperor have no clothes, his entire empire is shamefully naked before the King of Glory, and those who are called by HIS name. Astonishments will be the order of the days before us.

Panic and Revolt

Many in their rude awakenings will at first violently respond like a drunkard punching the air as he pulls himself out of the grogginess of a deep, and dangerous sleep;  not yet centered by the SPIRIT who is upon the non-sleepers in Christ. Because of the overwhelming sense of powerlessness to stop what seems to be the legalization of lawlessness itself, these not knowing the Kingdom way, will be in the throws of flight or fight. Somehow trying to get a way from what they know is increasing madness.

This will be that which will fuel unrest among those not ready to face what will suddenly catch them by surprise, whom will find their True NORTH only in Christ. They that become resettled in HIM, shall gradually re-gain their equilibrium; with the help of those whom have been watching and praying, and living in the peace that passes understanding.

This will be the first company of those whose exodus is out of great darkness that will come to the Church in the declaration phase of her arising. Meanwhile the Kings of the earth and those choosing darkness as their covering are responding, as any would, who knows their throne is at risk, and is in danger of being exposed, and over thrown.

Psalms 2

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The LORD shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King” He says,

On My holy hill of Zion.”
**

 Logistics Of Their Removal

What they don’t understand is that the order has already been decreed in the court of heaven, and filed. The logistics of their removal has been activated, and Jesus is returning to evict them from their power- whom refuse to recognize Christ’s authority! For HE IS the great I AM, and nothing will stop the demise of those strongholds of contempt, and lawlessness, against His power and might. He has said, “I will shake, once more, ALL that can be shaken.” The KING who is the MASTER of the house, is returning to find faith, and settle HIS accounts.

Isaiah 9:6-7
For a child will be [was] born to us, a son [was] given to us; And the government will [does now] rest on His shoulders; And His name [is] called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness, From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.

NO END TO THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNMENT! From THEN ON! When on?

At the time of His birth?  Certainly at the time of HIS coronation –

ZECHARIAH 9:9

(Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-40; John 12:12-19)

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Jesus is returning to finish what is already in motion. The heavens are HIS throne and earth IS HIS footstool. Amen and Amen

We occupy until HE comes.

Mark 16:18-20Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD, Amen.

David Wilkerson And The Japan Earth Quake

Evangelist David Wilkerson, who has now gone on to be with the Lord, wrote a book published in 1974, called The Vision. I remember reading it in 1984 and was astonished of the prophecies that had already come to pass since he had written the book. For many years after that it was virtually impossible to find a copy. Thanks to the Internet the copies of Wilkerson’s book began to resurface, becoming even more relevant than ever. In fact, I remember an earlier reading of it in the late 70’s where I had actually thought some of those things he wrote about could never happen. Surely, XXX rated movies could never be watched on TV in people’s homes.

The depravity of other things he described was unimaginable then, but is a reality now. Recently, Japan has suffered another devastating earthquake. He mentioned such an earthquake would happen just before AMERICA’s big one. Cautioning, that it may not be where everyone thinks, even though May 6, 2016 the head lines are warning us that THE BIG ONE IS EMINENT, that THE SAN ANDREA’S FAULT IS READY TO Go anytime. Wilkerson mentions an earthquake where none have been known to occur. After that 2 more will then be triggered, as is captured in an excerpt below.

A Call to Anguish (by David Wilkerson, 9/15/2002)

Would you open your Bibles to the first chapter of Nehemiah please? Please just leave that open on your lap. We’ll get to it in the course of my message.

I would have a hard time preaching this if I believe my own flesh telling me that I preached too much of a heavy message. There have been times I’ve been to the Lord and asked him can’t you give me a happy message? But I can’t. Now God may be speaking to me. This may not be for you. But it’s a call to anguish. Lord, if you don’t help me I can’t get through this. I can’t. Lord I’m too old for games. Foolishness. And I’m tired of rhetoric, meaningless rhetoric. It never changes things. Lord, just help me.

Folks, I’m tired of hearing about revival. I’m tired of hearing about awakenings, of Last Day f outpourings of the Holy Spirit. I’ve heard that rhetoric for 50 years. Just rhetoric. No meaning whatsoever. I’m tired of hearing about people in the church who say they want their unsaved loved ones saved. I’m tired of hearing people say I’m concerned about my troubled marriage, when it’s just talk, rhetoric. I don’t want to hear any more talk about how immoral America has become, how godless our society, how corrupt our business. I’m tired of hearing about Islam taking control and Christians losing power. And how dead the church has become, because that too is rhetoric, meaningless. Away with all of our how-to conferences because they accomplish nothing. How to cope, how to build a bigger church, how to reach the lost, how to improve your people skills, and how to impact the world in this computer time. I look at the whole religious scene today and all I see are the inventions of ministries of man and flesh. It’s mostly powerless. It has no impact on the world. And I see more of the world coming into the church and impacting the church rather than the church impacting the world. I see the music taking over the house of God. I see entertainment taking over the house of God … an obsession with entertainment in God’s house, a hatred of correction, and a hatred of reproof. Nobody wants to hear it anymore.

Tell me now how many churches have you visited recently when you walk in the Holy Ghost is so strong that every one of your sins are brought up before your face, and the loving grace of God. When was the last time you’ve been to a church where you’ve seen young people under such conviction because the people of God have been on their face? And there’s such a concern, and there’s such an agony, that young people are falling on their faces and calling on God because a spirit of conviction is called down from heaven upon them. How many churches have you been lately where you hear a word comes forth that’s so burns in your soul, you know it comes from heaven, you know it comes from the heart of God. I hope you hear it here. Whatever happened to anguish in the house of God? Whatever happened to anguish in the ministry? It’s a word you don’t hear in this pampered age. You don’t hear it. Anguish means extreme pain and distress. The emotions so stirred that it becomes painful, acute deeply felt inner pain, because of conditions about you, in you, or around you. Anguish, deep pain, deep sorrow, and agony of God’s heart. We’ve held on to our religious rhetoric, and our revival talk, but we’ve become so passive, our so-called awakenings are stirrings that last but a short time. And when the short-lived revivings and awakenings come from the hand of God, they are so short lived, and in those times we promise God we’ll never return to our passivity. But it’s not long, it’s just weeks or months and we’re back, and this time we slip further back into passivity than when we started. I speak from experience. And we say this time God you’ve touched me for life, I’ll never be the same. And it’s like fireworks, a loud bang and a lot of noise and then it dies.

All true passion is born out of anguish. All true passion for Christ comes out of a baptism of anguish. You search the scripture and you’ll find that when God determined to recover a ruined situation, he would seek out a praying man, and he’d take him down into the waters of anguish. He would share his own anguish for what God saw happening to his church and to his people, and he would find a praying man, and he would take that man and literally baptize him in anguish. You find it in the book of Nehemiah. Jerusalem is in ruins. This is the center of God’s interests on earth at the time, his holy city is wasted and it’s full of iniquity and mixed marriages with the heathen. They were enslaving their own people making slaves out of the poor. The house of God was polluted with filth. The high priest was in league with Tobiah, a heathen, reprobate. How is God going to deal with this? How is God going to restore the ruin? How does he do it? What does he do?

You see we face a similar situation except ours is many times worse. The time when men, according to the prophecy of Jesus wax worse and worse and that is happening. The church that’s defiled with pedophilia, child molestation, incest, adultery. A nation in a moral landslide that’s inundated with pornographic filth that the whole world blushes at. And now out of Con film festival according to the New York Times there’s a new movie about that hit the shores of the United States with 13 14 year old kids having unspeakable kinds of sex with adults. And they said at the Con film festival we’ve not only pushed the envelope, we’ve gone over the edge. And America is now ripe for it. The ruin and moral chaos is corrupting the house of God also. How else do you explain that multiplied numbers of Christians go home and watch HBO, a program I’ve never seen I don’t have television, but I read about it in the newspaper today in the New York Times called the Sopranos? This is a mafia bunch that kill and murder and maim, gratuitous sex, cheating, lying, mafia. And we have millions of Christians now in the United States getting together and talking about the next show and they’re addicted to it. Some of you hearing me now, that’s your favorite show. No laughing. This is life and death. Did you come here tonight, did you raise your hands and sing and shout and have a good time, and you know you’ve been watching this filth?

Now I believe in the love of God. I’ve preached mercy and grace and covenant love. And I believe in preaching the goodness and longsuffering of Christ. But multitudes today are being saturated with “you’re ok” messages. And we’ve got people now that are turning the grace of God into lasciviousness. We’ve become like the children of Israel who said the right words, but here’s what God said: I’ve heard the words of this people. They have well said all that they have spoken. Oh that there was such a heart in them that they would fear me and keep my commandments always that it might be well with them and with their children forever (Deu 5:29). You have the right words. You sing the right songs, but your heart is not right.

Nehemiah verses 1 through 3.
The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace, (Neh 1:1 KJV)
That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. (Neh 1:2 KJV)
And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. (Neh 1:3 KJV)
And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven, (Neh 1:4 KJV)

Here was the word. Here was a delegation from the ruined city of Jerusalem coming to Nehemiah. It said Jerusalem is broken down, the walls are down. There’s nothing but ruin. Now these I’m sure were godly men. These were good men but they had no concept of how God was going to deal with the situation, how he was going to bring about a recovery. They had no concept of what God was going to do. All they could see was ruin and brokenness and despair, and hopelessness. Verse 4 when I heard the words I sat down and wept and mourned certain days and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. You see God found a praying man and he takes him down in the waters of baptism of anguish. This man goes down into anguish.

And in verse 6, I pray before thee now, day and night, confessing the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee, both I and my father have sinned. Nehemiah was not a preacher. He was a career man. He was the king’s cup bearer. He was in comfort. He was in royalty. He had it made, so to speak. But this was a praying man. And God found a man who would not just have a flash of emotion, not just some great sudden burst of concern and then let it die. He said no. I broke down and I wept and I mourned and I fasted, and then I began to pray night and day. When I heard I wept. Why didn’t his brother, Hanani, why didn’t these other men, who apparently were godly men because later Hanani was given the rule of the city (Neh 7:2). Why didn’t they have an answer. Why didn’t God use them in restoration? Why didn’t they have a word? Because there was no sign of anguish. No weeping, not a word of prayer. It’s all ruin. That’s all they could see.

Does it matter to you today that God’s spiritual Jerusalem, the church, is now married to the world? That there’s such a coldness sweeping the land, so many people I know that were my friends and I see them go one by one, husbands and wives into such passivity, going to churches where they can find smooth messages, no longer wanting to hear anything of wrath or of correction. Some of my closest friends, I see them falling by the wayside. Is it nothing to you? Closer than that, does it matter about the Jerusalem that’s in our own hearts? The sign of ruin that’s slowly draining spiritual power and passion, blind to lukewarmness. Blind to the mixture that’s creeping in. You see when spiritual blindness comes very few recognize it, it’s the last recognized thing that happens to a child of God. If I as a pastor knew you personally and I was watching your life, and as one of the pastors of this church I come to you and say I love you but I have to tell you the truth. You’re changing. You know what you were. Something of the world has gotten your heart. I don’t know if it’s television. I don’t know what it is that has your heart, but I see changes in you. I don’t see the brokenness. I don’t see the compassion you had once for your family. I don’t see concern for your unsaved loved ones. You’re changing, little by little something’s happening to you. Would it bring you to your knees? When the ruin that you are not even aware of is suddenly brought before your eyes? And to tell you the truth I thank God for the anointing and the singing tonight. I thank God for the praises that came from so many sanctified hearts living in covenant with the Lord. But the truth of the matter is. In all honesty, there are numbers among us are changing, and they don’t know it. You’ve lost your fight. When you read the book of Joshua it’s almost a book of failure because they lost their heart, they lost their fight. That’s all the devil wants to do is get the fight out of you, and kill it, so you won’t labor in prayer anymore. You won’t weep before God any more. You can sit and watch television and your family go to hell.

Let me ask you. Has what I just said convicted you at all? Did you just let that go in one ear and out the other? When a pastor tells you, you’re changing, little by little you’re losing the love of God. Little by little these things are making inroads. Folks why do you think your pastors cry out against television? Do you think we get any pleasure out of the flesh. There’s no pleasure in somebody coming and saying I’ve heard your message and I threw away my television. That doesn’t give me any pleasure. It doesn’t give any pastor pleasure. We have to give an account because we watch for your soul. These things I don’t know where it is on the job, these things that creep in, and suddenly this Jerusalem the walls go down, and ruin sets in. Does it really matter to you that your unsaved loved ones are dying and getting closer and closer to the end? Does it really concern you? They could die and go to hell, even though you’re a lover of Christ? Where’s the anguish? Where are the tears? Where’s the mourning? Where is the fasting? Now many of you fast, many of you pray, broken before the Lord. I’m talking about the body of Jesus Christ in general. Where’s the getting up in the middle of the night. You see he said night and day I began to pray. Where’s the confessing of your sins and of confessing your children’s sins before the Lord, or your mate’s sins before the God because this is exactly what Nehemiah does he confesses his sins and the sins of all the people. And then he says “we” have sinned. I have sinned. And then he said we have sinned. When Nehemiah heard of the ruin and destruction he never asked “why?” Why can a holy just God allow his city to go to ruin? Why were so many dispersed? Why were so many killed and murdered? He didn’t ask the question that we’re asking in America today, why did God allow the towers to fall and over 2000 people died in the crash. How could a loving God … folks I share with pastor Carter said today the holy anger that arises in my heart when I hear preachers on television or radio or hear that they’ve said on television “Oh God had nothing to do with it”. God had nothing to do with it? “Don’t put it on God”.

Why don’t you go to Daniel 9. And I want to once and for all tell you that this was God allowing America to be wakened. God didn’t do it. He didn’t stop the plans of the enemy because he had a greater purpose, because it was love for America that was about to slip into everlasting hell. I’m going to lower my voice so you won’t think I’m angry. From verse 5:

We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly,

Can you say that about America?

and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: (Dan 9:5 KJV)

Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. (Dan 9:6 KJV)

In other words the government has been warned by righteous men.

O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee. (Dan 9:7 KJV)
O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. (Dan 9:8 KJV)

Why? because we have sinned against thee.

To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him; (Dan 9:9 KJV)
Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. (Dan 9:10 KJV)
Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the Law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him. (Dan 9:11 KJV)
And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem. (Dan 9:12 KJV)

Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice. (Dan 9:14 KJV)

Now let me get back to my message. There ‘s a great difference between anguish and concern. God’s been dealing with me about this. Concern is something that you take an interest in, a project, or a cause, or concern, or a need, something that gets ahold of your attention and usually it comes through some emotional stimulus. You can hear like what you heard last Sunday from South Africa and all of the hundreds of thousands dying with aids and you can hear what we heard from sister Hulda this afternoon of the thousands upon thousands of children dying in Calcutta, India, and get all stirred up about it. You can get emotional and you get very concerned. But folks there’s a difference between concern and anguish. Cause you see you can tie yourself to a cause, you can get excited about it, or some project you can talk it up. You’ll go public with it, you can advertise it, you can support it, organize it, put a lot of effort into it. Let me tell you something I’ve learned over all my years 50 years of preaching, if it is not born in anguish, if it has not been born by the Holy Spirit, where what you saw and heard of the ruin that drove you to your knees took you down into a baptism of anguish where you began to pray and seek God.

Folks this church was born in anguish, 6 months of anguish, tears. A little country town in PA where a pastor of a small church cried out “Oh God I’m dry and I’m empty and there’s more to it than this, and if this is all the Holy Ghost is I don’t want it”. It was such a desperation. Weeks and weeks of calling on the name of the Lord, confessing my own deadness and dryness. Then finally coming for street rallies here in the city and walking the streets and then wind up on 42nd street and see them selling a kind of heroin that would kill you saying “I’ve got the good stuff it’ll kill you”. And I remember breaking down and it didn’t matter the crowds going by I sat on a fire hydrant type … on the side of building and wept. And I was in anguish. I was in anguish 4 blocks from here on Broadway, weeping and crying and wailing. I wasn’t looking for a ministry. I wasn’t looking to build a church. I was feeling God’s pain for a lost city. The same agony I felt years before when he started Teen Challenge. And I’ve never had anything that’s been any worth to God in my 50 years that wasn’t born in agony. Never. Never. It’s all been flesh otherwise. And folks I’ve been around the world again and listened to the cry of pastors dead and empty, some treating their wives like animals. And here I haven’t prayed in months. I haven’t prayed in 6 months. And I know that sermons won’t do it. I know that a new revelation won’t do it, covenant won’t do it. I know now, oh my God do I know it. Until I’m in agony. Until I have been anguished over it, I’m preaching sermons. Then I said no it’s too late I don’t have that much time. And all our projects, all our ministries, everything we do. Where are the Sunday school teachers that weep over kids they know are not hearing and are going to hell. Everywhere I go somebody’s got a project, somebody’s got a plan or a dream. That’s all it is, just an idea. They didn’t come to me from a broken heart. They didn’t come to me after hours of fasting and praying and mourning, not a broken heart. It’s just an idea. I’m sick of it.

You see a true prayer life begins at the place of anguish, a place where lifetime decisions are made. If you set your heart to pray God is going to come and start sharing his heart with you. He’s going to open up his heart. And I’ll tell you there’s pain in his heart. What he sees … and so few to hear. He’s going to show you the condition of his church. He’s going to show you the condition of your own heart, and he‘s going to ask you a question, “What is it to you?” And that anguished servant has to make a decision. And everyone hearing me now you’re going to have to make this decision. I have to make it. You either get up from your anguished place, you walk out of the baptism rwaters of anguish, and you say I can’t handle this. I can barely make it as it is. I don’t want it. God I have enough. I just want to be an ordinary Christian and I don’t want to carry this kind of a burden. I don’t want to have to weep over my family anymore Lord, I want to just take it by faith. See you have to make a decision. He’s going to come and he’s going to say now if you’re going to bear my burden, if you’re going to be an instrument of restoration, if you are expecting somebody else to be an instrument to win your family, to do this work, you’re mistaken. I’ve burdened your heart. I’ve given you my heart and I’ve opened up my anguish to you and I’m letting you feel it and share it so that it will bring you to your knees because it is there that I’ll speak to you the word of direction and that’s what happened to Nehemiah. He came eventually out of the waters of anguish with a clear word nobody could reject. He brought the city and nation to its knees. You find that in Nehemiah chapter 8. You see you either walk away and go back to your passivity, you say I’m just going to be an ordinary Christian, and there’s no such thing.

Or your heart begins to cry out Oh God your name is being blasphemed. The Holy Spirit’s being mocked. The enemy is out trying to destroy the testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness and something has to be done. It can’t go unchallenged. Let’s go back to these words. When I heard that Jerusalem was broken down. You see if he believed this theory that the need represents the call, you know what he would have done? He would have said gentlemen if you’ll just wait I’ll pack my bags. Just give me a day or two. This is the kind of challenge that’s my meat. I love it. Let’s roll. Let’s do it. No anguish. No fasting. No prayer no brokenness. Let’s just do it. Nothing would have been done. The walls would have never been rebuilt. Anything you try to do without this baptism of anguish is going to falter and fall. It’s not going to work.

Here’s what a sister wrote to me this past week. She said Brother Dave I’m so hungry for the Lord. I’m so tired of how to meetings. It’s all spiritual fluff. I was told of a woman’s conference that was going to be a great spiritual experience so I went with a group of sisters, there were 15000 women. I was horrified the first night when they opened the conference with a comedy sketch. It went from bad to worse. We were hoodwinked by the leaders. There was not a single prayer, not one mention of prayer. It was a farce. And I’m as empty as I’ve ever been.

The prophet Amos cried out with such woe to them that are at ease in Zion eating, chanting their music, but they’re not grieved for the affliction of Joseph (Amo 6:6). And in the original Hebrew root word they are not agonizing in prayer over the ruins of joseph. They’re not agonizing. They’re not in anguish about the conditions. Comedy yes, happy singing yes, eating, fellowship, good time yes. Weeping anguish praying fasting, no, no no. They will not have it. Folks I’m going to tell you something. Out of this baptism of anguish comes a marvelous thing that happens to those willing to submit to it. It’s the instant prompt knowing of God’s voice. Instant. Now see if you don’t have a history of prayer, if you don’t have this willingness to share God’s heart. You get it by asking him for it. He said I’ll give. I’m more willing to give than you are to receive. This is something you ask oh God I want to step out now; I want to know your heart. And when you begin to seek his face, you allow him to melt and break you. You come into this communion with the Lord; out of that experience … you see God hasn’t called us to live in anguish. This is the womb of something God is stirring, God wanting to accomplish in bringing out of ruin restoration, in your family, whatever it may be. He brings you down into this baptism. Now just like the baptism of waters you come up, you come out, but you’ll come out with this instant knowing of God’s voice. Because you see Nehemiah, he’d been fasting, he’d been praying, he’d been mourning, it left a mark on his countenance, and the king noticed it. He was his cup bearer. And one day he brings the wine to the king and the king says, why are you so down, why your countenance? Nehemiah didn’t have time to go and muse in his heart to the Lord. He didn’t have time to say give me 3 days to fast and pray. No he had to have an instant word. Nehemiah said I was very sore afraid so I prayed to the God of heaven and I said to the king. In other words, instant prayer, instant direction. Knowing God’s voice. There are times you’re not going to know what to do. You have no time to run to the closet. You have to hear his voice, “This is the way, walk in it”. Instant. That is a glorious result of the baptism of anguish.

The servant who willingly takes on the mantle of God’s pain is the only servant who has the authority and the right to hold God to his covenant promises. We preach covenant here, but only those who’ve known his heart, and in those times have allowed God to bring healing, has allowed God to go down deep in the soul and say Oh God I can’t do this my own, but I’m not going to let my kids go to hell. I’m not going to let my husband, my wife, oh God I’m not going to live in this death, I’m not going to live in this lukewarmness and this coldness anymore. God, change me. And when you get desperate before God you’ve set your heart to seek him, then you can hold God to his covenant promises. Look at Nehemiah 1:8,9

Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: (Neh 1:8 KJV)

Now he holds God to this covenant:

But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there. (Neh 1:9 KJV)

He calls on the covenant made to Moses. He says here’s what you promised God. And folks when you allow God to lead you into this place beyond concern, beyond just fleeting emotion. You say God I’m going to set my heart, then you have every right to hold God to every one of his covenant promises. You see, and I’m going to close in just a minute. We have a nation and churches today full of diagnostic experts. Just about anybody can tell you what’s wrong with the church. And now they’re coming out with statistics and polls. They can tell you how many heathen there are in China. They can give you polls and charts … but not the slightest idea. They have all these how to books. You won’t hear one word about anguish, tears, and brokenness.

In my closing thoughts I want to ask you why did Nehemiah of all God-fearing men that were left in Israel. Why did God share his anguished heart with Nehemiah? Because he was a man of prayer, he was already in prayer. Now I want to tell you something. I believe in destiny. I believe that God chooses men. But God can choose a man and he can abort it just like that. Nehemiah could have said, Look, I have more influence right here. I have the ear of the king. I need to stay right here. And God I’m sure has, I’ll agree with you that God will raise up somebody. No, he said, “Oh God, this is my burden, open your heart to me”. I know now, it’s going to take more than preaching, more than a new revelation. There’s going to be no renewal, no revival, no awakening, until we’re willing to let him once again break us. I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s something that’s coming. The other pastors have shared with you what they feel about some very very troubling difficult times just ahead, and it comes not only from the pulpit, it comes from politicians, it comes from all over the world. But I have to tell you that God’s calling me personally to a baptism of anguish. I don’t know what it’s all about right now. But I told God, I will not … I’m supposed to go on pastor’s conferences in May in Scotland and wales and Ireland. Then to Minsk and all over the world. I’m only going out two or three times a year. I say God I’m not going any more. I won’t take another meeting until I know your anguish for pastors. I can’t go just because there’s a need. I can’t go just because I’m wanted and accepted.

When I preach sometimes like this everything gets so quiet and I get to feeling … Lord I want to make people happy. Folks it’s getting late, and it’s getting serious. Please don’t tell me you’re concerned. Don’t tell me that you want your unsaved loved ones saved when you’re spending hours in front of internet or television. Come on.

I don’t know how to end this. Lord help me. I have a sense that this may not be for the whole congregation, that he’s speaking to some very deeply. If he’s speaking to your heart like he’s speaking to mine. Maybe you don’t need prayer along this line but I beg you, I plead with you, I need prayer. Lord I just have to pray I don’t know what else to do. I just … I’ve preached what you’ve put on my heart, and I don’t know how to end it. You end it, you do what you want to do, Lord. You speak to us. Lord there’s some that need to get to this altar and confess “I am not what I was. I’m not where I’m supposed to be. God I don’t have your heart or your burden. I’ve been wanting it easy. I just want to be happy”. But Lord true joy comes out of anguish. That’s where the joy is when we see the results of our laying hold of your heart and then you give us direction and then we see the results that are lasting. We see a whole city come to repentance and then Nehemiah stands up and says now’s the time to rejoice, let the joy of the Lord be your strength. But that joy came out of seeing the victory that came out of the anguish. Oh God. I’m not chastising this church. I’m not trying to bring woe on anybody, but oh God, if you do it for anybody, do it for me. I want my heart broken again. Lord I want you to take me into your heart and I want to feel the hurts and the needs of this people too, so that when I stand in this pulpit I preach your mind and your heart.

Will you stand? Nehemiah the 8th chapter,

They read in the book of the law of God distinctly and gave the sense and caused them to understand the reading. And the people said, they all said amen and lifted up their hands they bowed their heads they worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground. Now folks this is the result of this baptism of anguish. Now God’s dealing with all the families of Israel, he’s dealing with the princes the leaders. Ezra and Nehemiah have now gathered the people. Ezra opened the book in the sight of the people. When he opened it all the people stood up. They read the book of God distinctly gave the sense and caused them to understand the reading. And Nehemiah and Ezra the priest the scribe, and Levites that taught the people said unto all the people “This day is holy unto the Lord your God, mourn not, weep not, for all the people wept when they heard the words of the Lord. He said to them go your way eat the fat drink the sweet, send a portion, for this day is holy unto the Lord, neither be sorry for the joy of the Lord is your strength (Neh 8:10). That’s the result of taking on the heart of God. The ultimate joy of seeing God fulfill his word in his covenant promises in your life. There’s nothing of the flesh will give you joy. I don’t care how much money. I don’t care what kind of new house. There is absolutely nothing physical can give you joy. It’s only what is accomplished by the Holy Spirit when you obey him and take on his heart. He gives you the knowing of his voice, that instant knowledge. God saying, “This is the way walk in it” (Isa 30:21). And then the wonderful joy of seeing God answer your prayer, build the walls around your family, build the walls around your own heart, and make you strong and impregnable against the enemy. God that’s what we desire.

Would you lift your hands? Would you just tell him what’s in your heart right now? Right out loud. Just tell him what’s in your heart. Tell him, there’s a reason you came up here. Tell him why. Here’s why I’m here. Just speak it out. Tell him why you’re here. Tell him what you have to do. Lord forgive me.

Wherever you’re at all over this building, listen to me closely. All we can expect God to do is begin a work in you tonight, a very special work. When you go home tonight say Lord I’m not going to lay my head on this pillow .. Folks there’s a discipline to this. There’s a discipline. You have to will to do it. And when God sees you set your heart he’ll give you all the power and authority to follow through. But there has to be something in your heart right now. Say, God I’m going to give you no rest from now on until I see my family saved. I have to do that for my family. I’m praying this desperately. I want to tell you something. When a man comes up to me, as he did recently, and said I’m just bound by pornography. I said you had better baptize yourself in prayer. Immerse yourself in the word of God. And you better get deadly desperate before the Lord. And that’s what he wants from us. He wants that heart that’s set. If you do that he will give you … he will balance that with a peace and joy like you’ve never known before. And the joy that you have then will not dissipate when you get out. It will be an eternal joy, his peace. If he gives you his burden he’s going to give you his peace to accompany it. He’ll never let your heart be broken without all the oil you need for total healing. Never before in my lifetime have I want … to be broken before him. Because when I stand now before 4 and 5 thousand pastors at a time I know, oh do I ever know, and folks it’s the same thing you face when you go to a job tomorrow, and face all the powers of hell, you’ve got to know that you know that you know, you’ve got to have his voice. I can’t say anymore, I won’t preach another sermon. But I want us to sing that and I want you to just yield to the Holy Spirit, and I want you to set your mind. Now God tells you to get rid of your television set, do it quickly. Do it quickly. If the internet’s got you get rid of your computer. Do whatever God tells you. He’ll give you direction. Nobody’s going to have to tell you, it won’t be some legalistic thing that we establish for you to be something born in your heart out of God’s own desire for you. Would you just now set your heart and say Jesus I’m willing to follow you all the way. I want to know you and I want to know your heart. Come Holy Spirit. You do it Holy Spirit.

An Aroma to the Living, A Dirge to The Dead

Revisiting a dream featured in our article called SON of The FATHER’s House.

The Lord came to me as the SON of the Father’s house; a seed sower, husbandman, and harvester. He handed me two shear-cut slated rocks to play in a music machine, that was in the style of a CD player. These rocks were sharp, jagged, and raw edged, around the outside; but, polished, and beautifully ingrained on the inside. They looked like deeply embedded marbled streams of water, with white swirls, taking on the appearance of white water rapids, pouring through mossy green embankments. I looked at the music machine asking the Lord, “Can we play Here Comes the Son?” He kept looking at the slated rocks and said, “I have these, I’ve had them all this time, will you hear them?” I said,”Lord wait, I’ll go tell them you’re here” though He wanted me to stay He relented, and let me go. I went into a back room where there, apparently, was a sixties slumber party of teenage girls just waking up. I told them who had showed up, wanting us to listen to the music stored on these sliced and polished stone discs. They screamed as if he were the Beatles, and they started to get dressed.

imageI ran out to spend more time with him, again, asking to hear the song, Here Comes the Son. Again, he almost seemed slightly disappointed, he looked at the slated rocks in his hands. I felt moved for him, because he wanted so much to share these songs with me. I remembered the scripture … If these don’t then- the rocks will CRY out. I went back to hurry the girls, each time they were curling their hair, and primping, I pleaded to them, “please hurry, just come as you are, he is waiting, he has music He wants to show you!”, still they kept primping, each time I checked on them they were moving a little slower. Each time I left him alone he would hardly let me go. Finally, they became distracted and was doing other things the last I saw them, I spent the rest of the time left, with HIM. I was in my t-shirt and sweats, my hair was undone. None of that mattered to him as his eyes never looked away from mine. He looked a little forlorn because of the absence of the others but His joy that I was there never dimmed.

HE TOLD me something about a famous song writer I never knew. When I woke up I researched it, and it was true, in the beginning his songs, lesser known, was about Yeshuah. Sadly, his music, rejected by the church so many years ago, did not end where it began in the era of His fame. What is this from heaven? What more to be discovered? What sounds, and songs are etched in the stones that are about to cry out? The Lord did not want to sing, “Here Comes The Son” though the melody was catchy, fun and sunny- a good thought for a rainy day, still it shadows in this one truth we cannot miss. In order to worship God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH we need to comprehend Jesus Christ IS Come, and through him and by Him we enter the throne room of GRACE where by we obtain MERCY in times of need. Similarly, worship is not past, nor future, it is BEING WHOLE HEARTILY with HIM in HIS presence. No preparation apart from the Holy Spirit will lead you to The Father. Grace has made the way, that we may boldly enter in, as we are. The presence of God will transform us into HIS IMAGE. THE QUESTION IS what is the true image of our God who is a consuming fire?

No heavenly song, comes from with out, rather it comes from with in the presence of God. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. The Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. The Sower and the Harvester is the SON OF The FATHERS house. This people, these generations, who dolled themselves up for hours to stand before a stage screaming for their idols- are a people, still, so enthralled with preparations, approaches, and presentation, we missed this one thing. Time spent with Him. We cater to the former so much we miss the latter. Have you heard it said we need to acknowledge the older generation in our music? Play their old tunes to spark them up? Honoring the older generations is commendable, but in this they should be at the helm. I am that older generation, the tail-end of the Jesus movement harvest; and I can tell you if they are not in the inner courts now, they never will be. Simeon and Anna were waiting for the Lord in the temple daily according to Luke 2:35, elderly as they were, they did not want to miss a thing; not only did they greet and meet the generation that brought forth the Messiah, they prophesied and recognized, His arrival. Aged Simeon was led of The Lord to meet Jesus and His parents at the temple. Simeon prophesied over Him, and Anna was the first woman to preach Jesus among those looking for the Messiah. She never left the temple but stayed there day and night, she was a prophetess over 80 years old.

imageIt is God’s order that the elder generation meet the present day visitation as long as they are standing in their place, with enthusiasm, waiting for what they have been prophetically watching for [Lo] these many years. Always looking for Christ in His second coming, and the moves of His Spirit that will usher in His everlasting kingdom. As the scripture says, parents are for the children, not children for the parents. The Church has got to stop pandering to idol worshiping ears, that will never appreciate the sound of heaven but will bog down the assent in the fair way. So much is said about grooming the congregation into the act of worship so that they will not be left behind … Does it occur to anyone that is where they want most to be? Left behind? Shall we not go? Leadership is upset that the foyer fills up, rather than the altar, you compel, and compel, before you have entered in yourself, but few respond.

The dream challenged me- in my determination to bring the “slumber party” to the place where they could hear these songs, I kept leaving the moment to bring others in. Risking what ever it was that God wanted to impart to me would be missed in the perishable moments called a VISITATION. SOMEONE must receive from the Lord or none ever will. The airlines tell us, “Put the oxygen mask on yourself first, then reach for those that cannot do it for themselves.” Why? Because if you don’t secure for yourself first, both will die for lack of oxygen. Christ first always. Cut off the pandering, put on the oxygen mask, get a fresh lung full of GOD BREATH, and then we’ll have what it takes to motivate the late arrivals. You see, there is always the danger of the former generation’s mindsets delaying the new. For Example, the wilderness generation that had to die off before the new generation could enter into the promise land. Save Caleb, another great elder, of great strength, and faith. So beneficial for the crossing over, how much His stories caused the younger generation to burn in their heart for the promised land. What to gain is Christ, and Christ alone.

Let the slumber party sleep, they had their day. Had they stayed awake they never would have missed the INTRO that would have led them to the BRIDGE. Your encounter with the throne shall drench you with the dew of the morning. The thirsty will find it upon you, and seek for more, hold not back, let not the outer court, the FOYER LOVERS, the generations that refuse to budge, (unless their MUSIC IS PREDOMINANT, and their palate satisfied) dictate the MASTER’S IMPARTATIONS upon His WORSHIPPERS that will usher them into the APOSTOLIC rule and reign of CHRIST on this earth. For the nature of what is about to be released in the earth as far as the SOUND and the SONG will be unto Satan the stench of a death dirge, to his rule and reign. Those found worthy will wait upon Christ, if they miss it the ROCKs still will declare it, and another generation of lost WORSHIPPERS will become pawns of a sound and melody that incites idol worship, for by its very nature music sways the masses into singleness of mind that is manipulated to SERVE SOMEBODY, should the Church fail to receive it.

Here Comes The Sons … How Satan so desires to have music born of heaven for it shall surely shall become the theme song to a new world order, if He can get His hands on it, and twist the gift of God for his own purposes, as he has in generations past. After all, Lucifer knows the power and influence of music. So then, let the sleepers lie. Move forward to your AWAKENING, the sound and the new song is creation in her groanings, singing harmony with the throne of God, in this shall your generations come from out of their GRAVES. Does not this present generation love to act out the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD? IS NOT THE ZOMBIE NATION this generation’s walking dead? Is the earth itself not groaning horrors? Shall not the stars fall down from the sky? What kind of music will come out of heaven and declare this generation? Even define its high call? Will not a Holy Tempest stir up from with in, and join the fountain heads and rivers from the corporate priesthood, and Holy Race? THE LIVING WATERS, Rushing down over the evergreen embankments, where all that is living breathes? The STONES are cut and polished smooth, what is this sound of heaven, that Christ is so enthralled about giving us, this one who came to me as the SON of the Fathers House who is the author and finisher of our faith?

As music interprets a generation, as it somehow relates to them, as they are conduits that carry heaven’s composition, so it is worth contending for waiting on heaven to receive, until it comes. The Worshipers go first, they head up the processions of victory, it is from the HEARING realm we shall first be alerted before the great day. For as it is written: With the voice of an arch angle and the trump of God … So let us have ears to hear, the sounds that come from Heaven. For out of it will come the fire of God that burns the incense of our worship, releasing the aroma, even the fragrances that mingle with His glory, come from His throne.

Corinthians 2:16 (AMP) For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]

Pretty Coats and Burial Cloths

Pretty Coats and Burial cloths

A Prophetic Word

I have them that are like my son Joseph, whom I have brought through grievous trials. I’ve brought them  from the depths of prison, both literal, and spiritual. Regardless the failure, or in Joseph’s case the false accusations- In your scars still looms the past, that I want to heal forever by reminding you that I have put my signet ring upon your finger, that you may not forget, in all your leading, (in the pointing of the good way) who it is that is YOUR father. I’ve draped you with my robe of righteousness, not only is this garment (a robe for covering), but it is a mantle where by I have called you to walk in. It is that thing that you should not put off, but you shall wear it always. It covers all things you lack in, from head to toe! Let it give you MY peace.

Receive for your mind my peace not torment, my love not fear, go out now from this place where I have met you, with these things to always remind you who you are, your inheritance is in me, your heritage also. For the pretty coat worn by the boy caused him many trials, as it did Joseph of old, it is gone now ripped and dispersed. It was meant to be your burial cloth, as was Joseph’s coat of many colors, rather it was preserved to testify, the one who wore it is dead. The old man is dead. Mourn no more over former glories, I drew the line my son, it was ME.

My coat is not made of man made materials, nor is it the glory of men. You have been renewed, now, and though the seven more wicked than the others have haunted you, you have filled yourself with me. They have found no place. We are here together now. This battle is won in me. My son we have conversed much at the gate of your inheritance, we have spent many days in your days of renewal. Come now and see all that I have in reserve for you. Your allotments in me. WEAR my Kingdom like a garment, never put it off. Of a certain it is RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY in the HOLY GHOST.

You stand on the sidewalks of salvation, before you tower the great columns of the porticos’ of peace, the entry way of our fellowship, the place of our communion. Let us sit beyond these doors and rest with in these walls, when you rest with me you are in the highest form of alertness. Am I not the captain of the Host of heaven? I know how to rest, laugh, sing, and war. When David rested from wars he fell into sin. I know how to balance all of the above in a perfect harmony of watchfulness and wakefulness.

In this place, you will see as I see, and be able to properly discern the day, and all its watches. You have longed for the days of renewal, and sought to set its order, but the order that you have seen in days gone by, will not be in the days to come. Not only has the furniture been moved around, but the address isn’t the same. You never exit the gate you came in from. For the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former. Remember, my son- the Tabernacle of God is with men. The fire by night and cloud by day that leads a mobile assembly, in the Spirit, will have no walls.

Let not man’s perimeters, that quench my Spirit be your walls, even your limitations. Live with in the walls of my kingdom, and your work will not be limited. The questions of “how” will dissolve when the proper platforms are raised. Here in, you will fulfill the calling where by I have called you with, says The Lord. Monuments made of walls, with stones erected by men, who cut them out with their own hands are not where I have called you, nor is it where one should spend ones life in the pouring in of their goods or time. But, it truly is the mountain of the Lord, made not by human hands where I’ve called my people to stream to.

Isaiah 2 New King James Version (NKJV)

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore.

Though many houses and many high walled places may call to you, and you shall stand with in them and preach my word, know your heart rests in Zion. Your spirit rests with in my house whose Chief Corner Stone the builders rejected, is it of no wonder you have been rejected, also, oh Living Stone? Where I am not, know you are out of place, also. They want the beauty of your colors, to crown their works, but not the order that supplies your proper settings. My jealousy for you, my son, has closed many doors, and been the cause of much rejection, let your wounded soul be healed knowing, I have not rejected you but I have chosen you. Living Stone you are set already, in a house made with out hands.

I have fashioned and formed you myself to fit where I have placed you, you are not displaced, but set among those that are mine, through the eyes of the Spirit, you will begin to understand true order. True placement, and finishing processes that perfect those placements, set by my Spirit, says the Lord. Then not only will you comprehend yourself as a living stone among many that makes my house, but you shall, also, be able to identify, and confirm my preparations in others releasing them in to my divine order, this is the true apostolic work of my kingdom of which you are being called.

The patience you will need to wait in- is for the embedded Stones captive in religious settings, even used to crown the works of men, to be dislodged from their satanic strongholds, in order that your ministry will locate and properly line them up for the order of my house, says God. Wait upon me, for this I am perfecting you. ( I see the Father holding smooth stones in His hand as if to clear them from the dust of where He brought them out of) these are those the Father is preparing to be entrusted to one who has been acquainted with their infirmity. (I hear in my spirit that the cutting of stones is a delicate operation, and this is, also, the Father’s work- extracting diamonds from the rough, new converts with clean slates, not marred by religious settings.)

These are those entrusted in the hands of those of whom I’ve anointed to equip them, you shall see them through my eyes, and in my ability that I’ve given you. You shall prepare them for their proper settings, in my house made not with hands of men, but this will be done by my Spirit, through you, for it surly is not by might nor by power, that my lively stones are placed in their settings in my kingdom, says the Lord. Note: In Christ there is no male no female Greek or Jew. But, I kept hearing the Lord Say, “I will be a Father to those Son’s like Joseph, (they have no Father but God, because of injustice in the earth.) This is to say for a lack of spiritual Father’s, as well. I also, saw that the Father wept over the orphans of the earth, and the widows. Hebrews 12.

Home Bound Warrior

When The Warrior of Faith Comes Home
By: dee http://www.newinepouring.com/

My name. My name. Child of mine, says The Lord, I have taken you out of warfare and have set your feet in a broad place. To occupy the victory that I have given you. Still, this one thing you must continue to do, you must walk your parameters, and consciously acknowledge your inheritance. In other words understand fully, I have brought you here for a purpose, so remain reasonably alert, you do this by using the power of my name against the enemy (rendered) toothless, yet nipping away at your mind to distract you.

Remember it is the little foxes that spoil the vine, the little cracks in the wall the enemy would dig away at. The places of insecurity, and fear, I would have you place these things, simply, under my blood. You are clean for my blood has cleansed you from all unrighteousness, no man can walk upright with out my help, I am the one who perfects your walk, it is I says The Lord, that is the author and finisher of your faith.

Often after years of conflict soldiers find it hard to live in the mundane, the day to day responsibilities of life, that is why you must look to me who is your source of joy, and will train you to find fulfillment even in that which seems mundane, or, monotonous. Once you have completely settled in this place I have ordained for you to occupy, the stage then will be set for you to move into the next phase of you life, that I have planned for you and yours.

These are times where advancement in my kingdom is made. But, to many drift in this place, and miss the purpose for why I establish my people in a land. It is that you will have a place to develop other realms of accomplishment, unattainable in slavery, unfathomable in the wilderness, and elusive in wars. This kind off accomplishment that I want to lead you to, can only be realized with in the established borders
of your inheritance.

This is where the arts flourish in any civilization, the natural world can testify, only a people at peace, and prospering, with in the walls of a city can pursue the more ornate accomplishments in life. In my name you shall … Silence the storms, the accusations, and mockery, of what should be for you peacefulness of mind, for it will be this place the enemy would seek to taunt you, and debate your good standing with me, my love for you is above all, and for every one of your concerns I have an answer, says The Lord.

It begins with the truth of my Word, the authority in my name, and the power of my blood. These things that you have entered into, these settlements, where the borders are not only being expanded, but the stakes are being run deep into the ground, is not the destination, they are stepping stones you need to establish a platform to where I am taking you.

The oak grows slow, but it is a great tree, tall and strong, much finds refuge in them.There is much more that I have for you, and your joy will be full in me, you will not be disappointed with what I have for you, let your heart rest in me for the desire of your heart is being fulfilled before your very eyes in an exceedingly natural way, so natural that you’re having a hard time connecting the spiritual, and supernatural significance of it in fulfilling your destiny. Stay the course, my faithful warrior, and above all else continue to love.

…and they shall be called OAKS of RIGHTEOUSNESS the planting of The Lord. http://www.newinepouring.com/

Matthew 25:1-5 (NIV)

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.

the bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’“But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’“But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. 

Ephesians 5:12- 24 The Message 

Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light!  So watch your step. Use your head.  Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!  Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants.

Luke 21:36
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

Luke 12:39
But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.

Luke 12:38
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak.

The Russian Renewal

The Red River Nation Prophecy by: dee barnes

6/2013

I’m going to tell you about this thing that I have seen, and it is like the vision I wrote about regarding Syria and Turkey. The vision has a panoramic effect and seems to record an expedition like journey that runs from one continent  to the other  through out the earth from the beginning of the era of the Church, and I would imagine, will continue until the end of the Church era. This observance is something  I simply seem to step in and out of, to observe momentarily from time to time in its progression. Like walking into the middle of a movie on a Saturday after noon, going out, and then coming back in to an on going, epic story, that progresses to other scenes, and locations, each time I visit the theater. This next vision that I am going to share is like a sequel to the Sacred Pilgrimage and Crimson Banner vision but now instead of being in Syria and Turkey, the location is in the land of Russia, with the scene opening up on a beautiful spring day at what appears to be Red Square.                                         

Enter the Song Bird of Russia

vladimir-and-olga-volodymyr-and-olha
Vladimir of Kiev 956-1015 AD.
Olga 890-969 AD.

Song of Solomon 6:9 ... But my dove, my perfect one, is unique: She is her mother’s only daughter; She is the pure child of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed, The queens and the concubines also, and they praised her, saying …

Song of Solomon 6:10 “… Who is this who appears like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?”

An Awakening

Many in the land of stone palaces and wide open spaces shall hear the songs of the Spirit that whirl a cross the masses, like a wet hurricane saturating the people, gathering my Remnant Nation who dwells among them. “Even to myself says”, the Lord- “Shall not all nations have their day of visitation before the great day of My Son?” “Will I not call them to myself as a hen would gather her chicks? Will not the Remnant Nation answer my call as I pass through the back roads of the cities? Shall they not gather their banners and join this Holy procession, through out the earth, that moves and walks in my Spirit?”  “Did I not say that I would gather all who would gather and return them to their land?” “Is not this land a place of the heart, in the spirit, as it is for the chosen people a city, even the city of David?” “Yes, I am passing through the high ways, by ways, and hedges as I have before, through Russia, awakenings shall spill out into the streets from where they shall come, and join the heavenly band …”

One Holy Nation under God. A holy and peculiar people, a royal priesthood that shall set forth the praises of God …

Jesus- The words I speak to you are spirit and they must be spiritually discerned.

Psalm 84:3-12 The Message (MSG)

Birds find nooks and crannies in your house, sparrows and swallows make nests there. They lay their eggs and raise their young, singing their songs in the place where we worship. God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God! How blessed they are to live and sing there! 

And how blessed all those in whom you live, whose lives become roads you travel; They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks, discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain! God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and at the last turn—Zion! God in full view! God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:O God of Jacob, open your ears—I’m praying! Look at our shields, glistening in the sun our faces, shining with your gracious anointing. One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory. He doesn’t scrimp with his traveling companions. It’s smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

Mobile Assembly

There is a move of God, it is wonderful, powerful, it is the Holy nation, a peculiar people gathered in a moving assembly that is passing through the earth  … and it is He, the Lord who is strong in battle, but He is not in war mode, He is in gathering mode, as He said, “I will gather all who will gather and return them to their land”. As the natural Jews are returning to Jerusalem from all nations and many places so ,also, is the Remnant Nation being gathered in an assembly of the righteous, carrying their banners, lifting them high, each tribe, among their tribe, and divided among their clans. Shall not this gathering ultimately join in His return, in a twinkling of the eye, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and the trumpet of God? Shall not this body full of death be clothed upon? For the everlasting life with in, shall be housed with an everlasting body, that wears not out, but carries the eternal destiny of living souls forever.

Red River Nation 

Blood RiverEach clan has a banner, each tribe, also. Above those banners are the banners of the Lord, like the one that says, “His banner over me is love.” And the banners above all others, over each one, is crimson red, and they flow like a river above the procession of the righteous.  So the lord Jehovah-Nissi  the Lord our banner  is passing by and assembling an assembly of the gathered, whose pilgrimage is in the spirit, passing through the nations of this earth. It is the only sound in the stillness of the hour, as the newly awakened betrothed falls into the ranks that have assembled, come again at the break of dawn. I hear the sound of many banners whipping in the wind, and it is all I can hear  and the front of the line is moving out, who knew a mighty army, on a mission to gather, to recover, to compel was  moving through the land? A breeze, they say has become a gale, but it is the sound of a river of banners in the wind. “Close your eyes and you will hear them, in the Spirit”, says the Lord. From the eagles eye view, the banners flow together like a river moving across the land. Though your sins be as scarlet red , I will wash them white as snow.

Know Your Day of Visitation

If you are not watching for Him they shall come and then be gone, and you will have missed your appointed time to join the Holy People. Now when you hear the jostle of armor, and furled banners blowing, you shall know it is not just the wind, or driving rain, though some will say it is only the weather, or it only the thunder from distant lands, you shall know it is the procession of the gathered, come to gather! Throw open the garden gate, run down now, to the little stream where hedges grow, and beggars rest. Join the righteous procession, the regiment of the ready, an envoy to the nations who travel the unbeaten paths, who camp outside the city, meeting with those who know the difference between  rain, wind, thunder and the sound, and call, of the Remnant Nation who travels in the realm of the Spirit towards that day.  To move among the nations- a supernatural host in the spirit of intercession, in the acts of the saints of God, to lay down their lives, to coddle the condemned, to awaken the sleepers, to raise the dead, to do all these things for they believe upon the power of His name. Jesus.  Proceeding wars, walking through them, mopping up after them, to save, heal, and deliver; for, God the Father sent His Son the WORD and healed them and delivered them from destruction … the Red River Nation in all their clans and tribes have one banner above them all and that banner is- Jehovah-Nissi

Shall not the Remnant Nation manifest His glory in the earth? 

What is her motto? We know her highest banner … is it not as was for Him (who is Her head) who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily? As He IS, shall she not be the same in the earth? It is written: The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, to grant those who mourn in Zion,  Giving them a garland instead of ashes,  the oil of gladness instead of mourning.

And there she goes from one destination to another, a moving assembly, through out all places in the earth, where she comes from can we know? Where she is going can we tell? As the Spirit, so the wind we can only know what is revealed, true also, for those who walk  not according to their own understanding, but according to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

1-е Коринфянам 2:12-14

Russian New Testament: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-RU)

Но мы получили не тот дух, который принадлежит миру, а тот Дух, который исходит от Бога, чтобы мы познали всё то, что нам было безвозмездно дано Богом.

 Мы говорим об этом не словами, которым научились через человеческую мудрость, а словами, преподанными нам Духом, толкуя духовные истины с помощью духовных слов. Недуховный человек не воспринимает тех истин, которые указывает Дух Божий, и, по его мнению, это глупость; он не может их понять, потому что они оцениваются духовно.

1 Corinthians 2:12-14 King James Version (KJV)

 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for

Seer

The gift of prophecy edifies, exhorts, and comforts I Corinthians 14:3

It should lead you to Christ, build you up and strengthen you in your walk with God; always, leading us to the Word of God. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment to come. John 16:8-11

That being said, the scripture also, says that He [God] confirms His word with signs and wonders following.

The prophet seer, sees, and is able to interpret what he/she sees and teaches it to the Church. The visuals God gives to a prophet/seer brings continuity to the message and is often multidimensional. The word, vision, or dream speaks in parallels and parables. I read, where it was mistakenly said that  modern prophets don’t foretell. Only, forth tell, meaning they call those things that are not as though they were, according to what the Spirit shows them is God’s will on earth. This is true, but as far as the foretelling goes, you would have to explain that to St. John who wrote the Revelation of Jesus Christ, from an encounter he had on the Isle Patmos. In it he “foretold” the last days. Also, in the new testament, after the ascension of Christ, (in case that makes a difference for someone) A prophet fore told of a famine. Because of that the church was able to prepare for it.

Acts 11:27- 28

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) Notice Agabus was not of the original 12 apostles. (Just for those who say the gifts of the Holy Spirit were only possessed by the 12 apostles and died out with them.)

The prophet of God is capable of foretelling to warn God’s people in order that they might watch, and pray, to be diligent in their walk with him, and to be sober. Often times we are used to give words of knowledge regarding future events, in order to be prepared for a storm, or famine in the land. This is God, through His Holy Spirit, giving us instruction to do what we need to do, to best process, live through, and apply wisdom in the days ahead.

Another form of  foretelling is often found in a dream, or prophecy, that details an event that can only be seen after the matter, in other words it is only seen in retro-spec when a sign is enigmatically wrapped in a prophetic word, or more often in a dream. This is what I call a prophetic marker  to pay attention to the message of that dream, vision, or prophecy. So the message is actually more important than the prophetic markers in it, those markers are there to point to the season we are in, when we begin to see them. This is for us to pay attention to what has transpired. The old testament is full of that kind of prophecy, in the stories of the patriarchs, in the books of the prophets, in the psalms, hidden prophecy describing Jesus the son of God, even paralleling end time events.

After Christ  came into the earth these passages in Isaiah, and the Psalms- even the stories of Isaac, and Rebekah, all reveal enigmatic detail of  the life of Christ, his crucifixion, death,  Resurrection, and second coming. It is the same thing today in prophetic parallels in current events that take place before our eyes. Often those events have in them prophetic parallels that warn or foretell of the days or years to come. They are referred to as “Harbingers” as defined in  Webster’s Free Dictionary-

 
Noun

har·bin·ger/ˈhärbənjər/
  1. A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another.
  2. A forerunner of something.
 Synonyms

herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent

There is one on this site written about called The Tall Ship Bounty and Sandy Enigmas. These are historical events that recycle themselves as messengers for the days to come, in  hidden enigmas the wisdom of God unlocks through his prophets of the day. One famous harbinger written about in a best seller book called The Harbinger https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialHarbinger Points to events surrounding 9:11 that every American should read.  Prophets who  use the prophetic gift for their own gain, fame, or profit, will be judged. All that the seer/ prophet is to accomplish in all of his “seeing” is for the purposes of God  to bring glory to his name, preaching the Gospel of reconciliation through His Son Yeshuah, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 84:3-12 The Message (MSG)

red-morning-skyBirds find nooks and crannies in your house, sparrows and swallows make nests there. They lay their eggs and raise their young, singing their songs in the place where we worship. God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God! How blessed they are to live and sing there! 

And how blessed all those in whom you live, whose lives become roads you travel; They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks, discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain! God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and at the last turn—Zion! God in full view! God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:O God of Jacob, open your ears—I’m praying! Look at our shields, glistening in the sun our faces, shining with your gracious anointing. One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory. He doesn’t scrimp with his traveling companions. It’s smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.
