The Lord keeps giving me the word “WISDOM" and he’s bringing me to Proverbs Chapter 6. I’ve been feeling in my spirit a pull to understand how to endure a life of persecution for this is where I feel we are going as a Church.
When I asked Father what 2021 would bring he told me that his children would be given faces like flint. I’m not sure what exactly flint is, but I think it’s a hard rock that produces a spark when struck by iron or steel. Again, it doesn’t surprise me because we are a divided nation with two legs of iron. I also believe that flint was used to make weapons and tools, like spearheads and swords.
Holy Spirit is urging me to exhort the Church on how to move forward to endure the plight. The overall plan has not changed! He ignites his Church to bring forth light.
The flint in us will strike against the iron in others to create a spark which will bring forth light. And the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Inspired Word of God, will protrude from our mouths to fight this evil. It is sharper than a double edged sword! It cuts away soul from Spirit and flesh.
But the questions I have are these:
“How do we do this without creating offense?” and “How do you we evangelize without stirring up strife?” Is it even possible?
Well, it’s no surprise as to why Holy Spirit has led me to Proverbs 6. This is where Wisdom teaches on the daily lessons of life. So, this is what I’ve learned on how I am to conduct myself during the time of global division and strife.
Lesson #1 - Credit and loans are NOT the way to go! They can be a sign of wealth, but can easily become a fraudulent counterfeit! Be careful of entering into relationship with any form of bondage because Satan will be offering many opportunities. And if you have already entered into an agreement with a friend or a stranger that you know you should have not, then swallow your pride and beg to have your name erased before you get caught up like a bird and become entrapped.
What I mean is this - do not get so over your head that you will be tied to debt! Do not put yourself in a position that you can’t live without relying on the government.
During this time of great deception, the Master of Intrigue will give you many chances to bind with him. Remember that no human has the power to forgive like Jesus, and that no man should have two masters from which to choose. Stand strong on the truth - Servants of Yahweh need not be servants of men.
Lesson #2 - It is time to go to work! Stop being a spiritual lazybones! The alarm has gone off! Stop trying to turn it off! Get up and do the work that has been assigned to you. The harvest is ripe and it must be picked. You will either be a worker of iniquity or you will be a worker for Me! Holy Spirit has granted each of us different spiritual gifts. Stop standing around comparing your gifts, and get to work. The Lord has placed his plan and his purpose in each of our hearts, so look inside and find out what he is telling you to do. Stop listening to others and feeling condemned. There is no time to waste in this dying world that we’re living in. It is only going to get worse. Soon the government will be changing the Bible too. So know the Word of God before it gets taken from you!
And let’s talk about poverty. Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks common sense. If you turn off the alarm in hopes to get little extra sleep, or you fold your hands and say “I give up”, then evil cravings will come, and natural desires will rise up.
So stay alert, get up, pick up your mat, and go and do the work the Lord has called you to.
Lesson #3 - Do not engage liars! They pervert justice and they try to trip you up through deceptive lies. They suppress the truth like a snake twisting lies between two eyes. They bring death and destruction to every perspective, and they function in opposition to the Spirit of Truth. They like to stir up trouble through haughty eyes, lying tongues and hands that kill the innocent. Their hard hearts plot and their feet quickly move to do get away from God. They sow discord in the family unit, and they act as a false witness to the Lord. Stay away from these types of people! Do not try to befriend them. Do not engage them!
Lesson #4 - Obey My Authority and Maintain Your Fear of the Lord - the Spirit of God will lead you into ALL Truth! Always keep the Word of the Lord in your hearts and tie them around your neck. When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you. For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way of life. Without the leading of the Holy Spirit who is gifted with eternal wisdom, there is no way to know the difference between what is right and what is wrong.
Lesson #5 - Lust will lead you back to the mortal dust. Cravings of the flash are no different than our natural thoughts and emotions. Without Holy Spirit we are abandoned to carry out worldly intent. The natural man, on his own, without God, is subject to sin. Worldly desires are driven by sexual immorality, impurity, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, envy, bitterness, division, and drunkenness. So the more we can align our hearts and our minds to the Spirit of God, the less likely we are to resemble this!
Lesson #6 - God is a jealous God, much like that of a jealous husband! He does not take it kindly when his bride flaunts herself in front of other men. Any king or kingdom who commits spiritual adultery and finds herself in bed with other gods, will no longer be protected under her husband’s grace. The Lord will be bringing his wrath down!
During 2020 the Lord said “You have shed innocent blood covering your land, from end to end!” “You have taken me out of government and worship other gods!” “America had a choice between “Return to Me” or “Choose your Pride" - and look at what you have done! You said yes to abortion and no to religious freedom. You looked at a prideful president and hated him more than you feared ME! You hung in the balance, and waited, and then you decided a Baal society was what you would want. You chose not to listen to the warnings that I sent through the prophets! You people of the proud - you don’t like to be told what to do! In fact, you want to believe you are the knower of everything!"
Christians beware! Persecution is coming to you! But know this, they hate you only because they first hated Me! So this morning, as I sit at the feet of Jesus, he says, “Listen to Wisdom. She will not lead you wrong.” This is what I heard her say, "Use good judgment. Show some understanding, and have keen discernment.”
And then I heard the voice of Jesus and this is what he said to me.
“I love all who love me, those who search will surely find me.
The Lord formed me from the beginning before he created anything else
I was appointed I ages past, before the earth began.
I was born before the oceans were created
before the springs bubbled forth their waters;
before the mountains were formed before the hills,
I was born before he had made the earth and the fields,
and the first handfuls of soil.
I was there when he established the heavens
when he drew the horizon on the oceans;
I was there when he set the clouds above
when he establish springs deep in the earth;
I was there when he set the limits of the seas
so they would not spread beyond their boundaries;
and when he marked off the earths foundations
I was the architect at his side -
I was his constant delight, rejoicing always in his presence
and how happy I was with the world he created
how I rejoiced with the human family.
And so my children, listen to me
For all who follow my ways are joyful.
Listen to my instruction and be wise.
Don’t ignore it!
Joyful are those who listen to me watching,
for me daily at my gates waiting for me outside my home
for whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord
but those who miss me injure themselves
and all who hate me love death.
