It Has Begun

Whether or not you believe in prophets or prophecy, or even the bible, it is hard to dispute that we are coming into a different time, a time of change and a time that evil is loose and wreaking havoc on the world. We are seeing behavior in the streets that borders on anarchy and peaceful protests are no longer in any way peaceful. We are seeing murder and hatred openly embraced. People are afraid to leave their homes and everyone is grasping at power and domination with little or no regard for truth or goodness. Few righteous people of God have stood up and taken a leadership role publicly, and we as the body of Christ are leaving the ones who have, vulnerable and open targets for ridicule and violence if we do nothing. If we do not stand together as the army of Christ, and as the body of Christ then are we truly living for Christ?
 
The time is quickly approaching that we will no longer have the option of being lukewarm Christians living with one foot in the world and one in Heaven. Lines are being drawn and you better know what side you are on and why! As I prayed today, after a day of fasting, I was shown a vision, an eyes shut spiritual vision, a movie in my head that I was following, not creating. I was asking God “Then what?” and “Is there more for me to see?” and “What do you want me to do with this and what does it mean?”.
 
I was fasting ahead of a national fast and day of prayer in the church. I wanted to prepare and see how I was feeling and did not really pray much, but did pray as I usually do, as I worked the whole day. I wanted to prove it to myself before I committed to God to do something I was not sure I could do or had the willpower to do. By the end of my fast day, I was saying, “I can do this for God, easily. I can fast in sacrifice for Him.” I had shown myself I could and wanted to, and it felt like a small thing to do in honor of Jesus’ sacrifice for me. God saw my efforts, and the amazing reward for just preparing myself was mind blowing!
 
I just wanted Him to speak to me. My week had been so busy and I was determined not to let myself lose track of my time with Him. I put my time for working for Him and meeting with Him on my calendar right along with my day job working with families, and my evening job writing articles and my home chores. I have time for church, and set free group and classes and prayer and fasting, and for writing my book for Him on there too. I believe God honors our efforts for Him, because He knows our hearts.
 
I have known for some years, well, all my life really that I was a little different, not quite like other people but close enough. But I liked that I knew and understood things, had dreams that came true, felt very deeply and could see things in my head that I knew other people did not see. Until recently I did not understand what it was or what I was supposed to do with it or why I had it. Through some learning and developing my giftings, I know that I have a prophetic gifting from God. That’s what visions and dreams are (among His other ways of communicating) and He has asked me to use it, to work for Him, for His Kingdom and I am honored to do so. But, please don’t think this is easy to tell everyone. And I’m sure there are people who have by now, already hit the x in the top corner of this page to exit. Not everyone believes in modern prophets or prophecy and how we as the one bringing prophecy are to conduct ourselves for God. But that is between you and Him. I have been asked to bring the message. He will bring the understanding.
 
So, what I am going to tell in the next few paragraphs is really nothing new except that I believe I have been given confirmation of the time we are living in and what is coming very quickly. Jesus is saying it is time to take a stand, the war has begun.
 
We are in the time of the Rising of the Beast.
 
I was shown in prayer, a vision of an army of soldiers dressed in the Armor of God, riding on horses out to battle, riding a path from the Mountain of God to battle. Not an angelic army but a human army dressed in armor, the full Armor of God. (See Ephesians 6:10-20 at the end of this writing.) I watched a battle, a clashing as those in armor plowed through the army they are met with. I saw demons falling over the top of those in armor in large numbers, not in attack but in defeat. As those armored human warriors fight, those demons fall in great number. As the enemy is surrounded and the warriors in armor close in tighter around them and begin to subdue the captive enemy, an enormous beast, powerful and HUGE emerges from beneath them and rises up right through the middle, overpowering both armies, rising in both power and presence. It is fearfully powerful and grandly intimidating. Then, I watched as it tipped over sideways, easily toppled by the yet unseen force that covered those warriors. And as it went down, and the smoke began to rise, I saw what looked like the dawn, like the sunrise as it just begins to get brighter and my vision ended there.
 
I saw the Son rise in that dawning!
 
I asked is there more and he told me yes there is but I had already been shown. This is the time we are living in. This is the rising of the beast. He referred back to something He showed me previously regarding the antiChrist. (See Zechariah 5:1-11 at the end of this writing.) He said to me ” The basked has been set on its base and wickedness has birthed the antiChrist.” If you read this passage you will understand the answer. The answer He is giving you: The antiChrist is here. He is born and the war has begun.
 
We as Christians know that the war is won and the battle belongs to the Lord. We fight for Him, we go to battle as His warriors but the battle is His and I watched Jesus defeat the evil one and got a taste of His coming in Glory in just a glimpse of the dawn. But understand that just because we have already won, we are still living through this time. Its not going to be easy. We have to put on our armor, mount our horses, and go out to battle from the Mountain of our God! We have work to do and He is calling us!
 
Please, if you have not made a decision for God, to be His, to be forgiven, sealed and shielded, to accept salvation in repentance, to armor up and ride out to battle for Him, do it now. It is never going to get easier from now on, but we are called to hold tight to, and to fight for, and to persevere to the end to see, our redeemer Jesus in His glory. He brings that glory and peace for us. If you have not said the sinner’s prayer of forgiveness please, do it now. I have added it with the other information at the end here. Reach out and take His hand because we are headed into the worst battles, the worst times the world will ever see and we will not make it without Jesus. I have chosen to walk, to armor up, to mount my horse and ride into battle for Jesus. I have made my choice. What will you choose? WHO will you choose?

The Whole Armor of God – Ephesians 6:10-20
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [b]wiles of the devil. 12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [c]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
 
Vision of the Flying Scroll – Zechariah 5:1-11
1Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll.
2And he said to me, “What do you see?”
So I answered, “I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits.”
3Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according to this side of the scroll; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according to that side of it.”
4“I will send out the curse,” says the Lord of hosts; “It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones.”
 
Vision of the Woman in a Basket
5Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.”
6So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a [a]basket that is going forth.”
He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth: 7Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”; 8then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead [b]cover over its mouth. 9Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven.
10So I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are they carrying the basket?”
11And he said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of [c]Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.”
 
Sinner’s Prayer Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
 
If you just prayed this prayer earnestly, WELCOME! to the family of Christ! Find a church or if you are not able or ready, you can call me. I am happy to answer questions, pray with you, cry with you, laugh with you. It is a joy to be counted in the family of Christ! 435. 216.6916
