PROPHECY: FAITH TO OVERCOME

The following Spirit-inspired utterance was recorded and transcribed in our private prayer time before our public ministry time in Pensacola, Florida at Freedom church. It gave us direction to minister along these lines in the two morning services, which are now available on our Holy Fire Ministries YouTube channel

When My people trust Me it brings Me glory, more glory than the myriads of angels that worship Me now in this place. When My people on the earth who dwell among darkness and so much gross darkness… when they trust Me in spite of what they don’t yet see, in spite of what they don’t yet know…when they trust Me under the canopy of darkness that the earth is under, oh, it brings the Father great glory, more so than any of the angels and saints that are now here in this place, for they worship Me in the full light…they worship Me in the full manifestation of My glory here in heaven. Oh, but down there when My people worship Me in a sin-filled, curse-filled world, oh what glory it brings the Father, what attention it brings to the angels as they peer from heaven and take note of this mighty army of overcomers that I have on earth that bring Me such praise and glory. 

So continue to trust Me and teach My people to trust Me, even in their trials and in their tests and in their hardship.  Let them know that they bring Me great glory when they trust Me in spite of what they don’t see and what they don’t feel yet. Yes, encourage them to have the Abraham kind of faith where he staggered not at the promise of God, oh, but he was fully persuaded that what I said would come to pass. Yes, impart this truth and this spirit to My people, for as the times increasingly get darker, so must their faith increase, so must their trust in Me increase, so must they see Me even as you’ve talked about among yourselves. 

They must see Me in the difficulties, they must see Me in the hardship and in the tests and trials. They must turn their face and turn their eyes away from all the difficult circumstances and difficult environment they find themselves in and they must turn and face the wall, turn and and face Me, turn and see Me, turn to Christ, and the veils shall be removed. And they shall see Me in greater accuracy and in greater awareness and in greater glory. And they shall walk  in great peace. 

Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord.

THE CALLING OF A CHURCH AND A NATION BACK TO GOD

If ever there was a time when true apostles and prophets must arise in America and the world, it is now — not only to give prophetic words of what the future holds, but with holy conviction, to call a Church and a nation back to the true worship of God, to drive out the money changers, and to call us back to true Spirit-inspired, fervent, effectual prayer and fasting, and holy character. They must also confront the elite vipers of iniquity and warn the false apostles and prophets of their whitewashed walls and false claims to peace, and to cry out to the people to repent and return to God. Both John the Baptist and Jesus did this as well as the writers of the New Testament.

Now is the time to flee the existing superficial version of Christianity and our false, unholy allegiances and return to a lifestyle that reflects the humility and meekness of our Master. It is an hour when true ministers must move away from the rat race of professional ministry, money-making schemes, and the pursuit of fame, popularity, and media exposure, and be made whole in God’s presence and through God’s love.

Only true friends of the bridegroom whose character has been shaped in the crucible of their own sufferings and earned God’s trust are qualified to lead a Church and a nation back to God. They alone shall know the secret and heart of the Lord.

“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant” (Ps. 25:14).

Notice how this verse reads in the Living Bible:

“Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone he shares the secrets of his promises.”

Too many modern apostolic and prophetic voices are tainted because they are too eager for power, popularity, influence, riches, and fame. They seek more the validation and affirmation of men at the neglect of truly living and speaking in the sight of God. The road can be lonely and difficult at times, but we endanger ourselves when we seek the validation of man over the validation of our heavenly Father. We must begin to align ourselves with the heart of Christ and see clearly what is within man, and rather than seek approval in the flesh, prefer at all costs the approval of God. This will keep us preferring purity over popularity, intimacy over influence, and holiness over hype.

A heartfelt reliance and preference for the approval of God over the approval of man is what distinguishes all true apostles and prophets from counterfeits and wannabes. The same could be said for all ministers and all saints. For there will come a time when they must not only speak out against the carnal and sinful status quo, but shake off those religious, political, and cultural traditions that run contrary to what God demands and expects of His people. This cannot happen unless they love and fear God more than man. This also cannot happen unless they have an exceedingly great zeal for the honor of God’s house, who we are.
