FRESH BREAD

I’d like to share a prophetic dream I had recently.

Many people were in a banqueting hall waiting for the guest of honor to arrive. He seemed to have delayed his coming. Then suddenly through a frosty designed long walled window I saw the shadow of a man with long flowing hair walking briskly.

It was Jesus.

Although I couldn’t make out his features due to the frosty window, I could see that He walking with a fast pace in long strides as if he was on an urgent mission. As he walked into the banqueting hall he approached me and spoke as a military officer in command:

“Farias! Did you get the bread?”

Oh no! The task of keeping fresh bread on hand had slipped my mind. In a frantic dash I rushed to the supply room in the back and found some old bread from the Salvation Army food bank. Due to its staleness I started warming it up in the microwave to make it soft and fresh, all to no avail. I had neglected to purchase fresh bread before Jesus came.

The oil in the lamps of the virgins (Matt. 25:1-13) represents both the Holy Spirit (oil) and the Word (lamp). The dynamic of the Holy Spirit illuminating the word of God to us is what make the word of God fresh. Many in the body of Christ have their lamps but little to no oil. They have the word but they’re not filled with the Spirit. They may have some oil in their lamps but no added vessel with any extra oil. This is what will determine the coming separation in the Church now and at the rapture.

My wife and I have traveled extensively to churches in the last 8 years. We are seeing an unholy trend. There are more and more Pentecostal/Charismatic Christians who have a Bible but no oil. Some are not baptized in the Holy Spirit though they’ve been in a P/C church for several years. They do not have a prayer language or they don’t utilize it.

Here’s what the Lord said after the dream:

“I’m bringing back voices that are speaking what I’m saying.  My people must learn to hear and discern properly for there are deceiving spirits moving even among those previously thought to be strong.  It is only the revelation and the feeding and nourishment that comes from partaking of the fresh bread of My Word that keeps them in Christ and in the Light.

“There are many warnings I’ve given My people.  Remember that in these days I said many would be offended and deceived and the love of many would wax cold.  Many in My church are being fed stale food. The children of Israel needed fresh manna every day to look for Me, and eat of Me, and be filled with Me. Learn to come to Me every day to hear what I have to say. The Son of man was always ready to give people fresh bread because He stayed in the Father’s presence. You must do the same.”  

Many celebrity minsters and well known names no longer serve fresh bread. They’re too busy or idle in prayer, and so they do not have spiritual nourishment to feed the people and are no longer following God’s perfect plan for their lives. My wife observed a minister with a household name speaking at a conference and noticed a great difference in their words. They were stale and lifeless even though there was much truth in them.

It’s not about a name or a celebrity but it’s about a vessel through whom the word of the Lord flows through. Truth is not enough. Knowledge is not enough. The kingdom of God is not in words but in power. Such is the state of many pastors and ministers in this hour. Such is the state of many believers. Remember that a big part of the warnings in the last days is that there will be many false apostles, false prophets, and false teachers. Deception is the greatest danger. Warnings could be the greatest ministry. Selah.

THE RETURN OF THE LORD SHIELDED FROM THOSE WHO HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING

An inspired utterance from the vessel of Carolyn Farias:

“And so as it was in the beginning when My Son came upon the earth. And the wisdom that I had to bring Him in was in a mystery and was shielded from the enemy’s eyes, and there was no understanding.

And so shall it be in this day and in this hour when My people come together and are filled with My Spirit, that I will begin to move and set in order My Son’s return.

For there is an hour that I am calling for My sons to be revealed. Even as the earth groans, so is it the hour of the revealing of My sons and My people as they are filled with My Spirit.

There are things that are coming to happen. There are movements of My Spirit that need to be demonstrated in this hour and in this time.

And if you will say to Me, “yes, I will; yes, I will do the will of My Father. Then I will use you and I will begin to fill you with a filling of My Spirit that was greater than when it started.”

When Jesus was presented in the temple as an infant there were two old saints who were there by revelation. First, it had been revealed to Simeon that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ (Luke 2: 25-35). Part of the revelation he also received was that Jesus would be a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles — something unheard of in those days as the Gentiles were outside of the covenant God made with Israel and considered dogs by the Jews.

The other old saint was Anna, a prophetess, who also came into the temple at exactly the time Joseph and Mary came in with the infant Jesus (Luke 2:36-38). She gave thanks to the Lord and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem (v. 38).

Notice that she spoke to all those who were looking for redemption in Jerusalem. As it was with the Lord’s first coming so shall it be with His second coming. Not everyone will be looking for Him. The mystery of His second coming will be shielded from many who are not expecting Him. There will even be scoffers who will doubt His coming (2 Pt. 3:3).

Here are at least three things we need to be mindful of that Peter points out concerning the coming of the Lord.

1. Do not forget that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day. Remembering this one thing will keep you from being among the scoffers (2 Pt. 3:8). There is a large segment in the body of Christ who now scoff the rapture of the Church and even downplay the word “rapture”.

2. Since the earth and its’ elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, we should carry ourselves in holy conduct and godliness (v. 11), and be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless (v. 14). So much for the hyper grace doctrine and being covered by carte blanche. Without holiness no man shall see the Lord (Heb. 12:14). There is no peace to the unholy.

3. Thirdly, we should always be looking for and hastening the coming of the Lord (v. 12), looking for the new heavens and a new earth (v. 13), and looking forward to these things (v. 14). This is an inward look that sees the things which are eternal and not the temporal. Several of the Bible’s references of the Lord’s coming speak of a looking posture that we are to remain in.

the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of…(Matt. 24:50)

Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” (Titus 2:13).

My admonition to you is don’t be found among those who fall from their own steadfastness and are led away by the error of the wicked, but continue to grow in the grace ad the knowledge of the Lord (v. 17-18).

It is imperative that you be continually filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18-19) and stay ready for the Lord’s coming. It is only then that you will even have spiritual understanding of the time and season of it.
