Starting today I will be using the Prophetic Words God gave me to share. I will use the actual words and I will start this first one using how I came to receive His messages through me during 1973 to 2015 all concerning the times we live in now and coming up. I will not put in order but use the best way I can. I know you’ll be glad to have the information now. So, as you read them over the next several days look close and compare to average church community today. It appears Lord knew where people are going.
Starting point: It was the end of the year December 1973. Nine years earlier I had been baptized in name of Jesus Christ on Easter. I had just taken nine and a half months of praying and seeking God before I was baptized in the Spirit. As I grew in Spirit and in works and knowledge, I looked for all the great things I had read about, heard preached about, and expected to see the power of God more and more. Yet, it seemed to be always something I read or heard about, and my life consisted of going to church on Sunday morning, Sunday night, Tuesday night Bible study, than back to Sunday again. I started praying to God to use me in some special way that His word said He was seeking those that would help Him. that the preaching was always build around coming to God and then helping Him get others. I said that your word is full of power and what you will do if only you can find those you can word through, but they are so few, “The harvest is white but the labors are few.
I also said, the word of God depicts the spiritual life of a Christian like a battle and that there is a war going on, and that solders are needed for the fight. Yet, I could see no battle except trying to get someone to break down and come the Sunday school, or a few trials people had, but I see very few victories. I prayed, Lord send me to battle, I don’t want to be a push button Christian at a desk, while the war went on over someplace else. Give me a sword and put me on the front line of battle, even if I fall, I’ll do the best I can. But don’t build u the fact the war is so great and important, if you aren’t really looking for help. God, let me wheel my sword, let me stand face to face with the enemy, through your power I can be good warrior for you. But let me in the battle. I guess this was the most serious praying I’ve prayed and I know God heard me. Yes, Lord heard me because He told me about the dark time the church would go though, a dark time I would be involved in coming out bringing God’s people back together as one body. He showed me a picture of the church surrounded in darkness. He also told me that I would be used during a time the darkness was lifted.
APRIL 1974 the Lord let me know how the devil attacks a person and how it affects them, as well as the brothers and sisters in the Church. He said devil works on your mind, rushing you all the time, keeping your mind going at a fast pace, rushing you to think fast, or just don’t take time to think at all trying to keep up. He will try to get you to rush into doing things or committing yourself to a plan or action without any thought. Training you not to stop and think what the outcome might really be.
Notice, you would not be concerned about the results as much as the fact you are just doing something or getting started. Always think of your methods instead of the result. Then, you are also being trained not to take time to pray about it, or guidance from Lord. You are doing things your way without Gods’ help, which can produce a negative result. If you are doing a work for God, getting negative results, then you will become is appointed in God. Devil hopes this will turn you away for God, instead of going to God for His guidance. This also hurts God’s efforts because of operating ahead of Him.
MAY 24, 1994 Lords showed me a picture of His people the church. He used a man that was on a very important mission to deliver an important message. He was traveling through the enemies land as though he was behind enemy lines during wartime. The land was full of large beautiful valleys, with green trees and grass and wonderful wild life you could watch. Although, he was in a hurry to get the important message to someone, he decided to rest under a group shade tree on the carpet of green grass. Then he fished in lake and took time to do some hunting and just enjoyed the land he was passing through. His entire attention was on how much he could enjoy this land while passing through, even at the expense of those wiating for the important message he carried. It was so nice and restful and beautiful that he decided to take a nap. As he slept and enjoyed the enemies land the enemy was surrounding him. The Lord then let me know that this was how His church was headed on its mission if not woke up.
Yes, you will be receiving the actual words over the next several days given me and recorded word for during 1973 through 2015. Yes, there were many more but over the years have be lost or borrowed and not returned.
