TODAY’S PODCAST IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING ONE!
What I’m sharing on this specific podcast is about a vision that I had when my husband and I were first engaged. I was staying in his parent’s home and my husband had his own house about 10 miles away. We spent a lot of time talking together and praying and just contemplating what our future would look like in the Lord, and how he was going to use us, when Steve would come over to spend time with me after work.
One evening I had gone into the living room of my in-laws to play the piano and worship and sing to the Lord, and while I was worshiping Him and enjoying being in His presence, I had what would be described as a screen being dropped out in front of my eyes take place, and I had a very visual picture to watch or as the Bible would call it, a vision.
I SAW MYSELF RUNNING ACROSS SOME SEMI-ROCKY LAND and Steve was behind me. He was trying to direct a group of individuals to stay in line and be in unity together.
All of us had what looked to be like a stretchy headband wrapped around our heads and across our foreheads. Attached on the front of these were round lights like miner’s lamps. Some of lights on the people in the line where Steve was trying to get them to come into unity and walk together would flicker and not come on brightly. Others were very bright and consistently steady.
I was running ahead like a scout and the word “forerunner” came into my mind as I was running ahead. I turned around and looked at what Steve was doing and he was trying to stop these individuals from elbowing each other and fighting over whose theology was the most correct.
ABOVE THE HEADS OF THESE INDIVIDUALS I NOTED THAT THERE WERE DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH ORGANIZATIONAL NAMES AND ALSO NONDENOMINATIONAL TITLES.
I turned back around and continued my scouting and forerunning and was jogging at a relaxed pace, but I knew I was heading towards something in front of me that I needed to get to.
The path had embedded rocks and bumps that I had to avoid so I wouldn’t trip. The lamp or miner’s light strapped to my forehead kept a bright light steadily beaming in front of me.
Suddenly, in front of me, was a large chasm or a gap and I had to stop and pull back so I wouldn’t fall headlong into the huge gap.
There was no possible human way to run and jump over it and I was at a dead stop staring over the edge. Intuitively, I knew I needed to get to the other side and that there was something very important for me to engage in and be a part of.
But! I didn’t see a ladder or a bridge long enough or safe enough in any direction, to try to cross over with.
I Heard A Voice In The Vision Tell Me To Take A Step Of Faith, and that as I walked forward, not in my own strength, not in my own might or power, but in the spirit, that I would make it safely to the other side.
I remember feeling hesitant and thinking I needed to warn Steve.
I turned around and told him I’m going to take a leap of faith to get to the other side. He looked at me and seem to understand what I was doing and turned around and tried to tell the other individuals that they were going to have to lean upon God‘s power and might and supernatural ability, to get them all to the other side. I once again turned around and backed up and took a running leap across this wide chasm. I was immediately on the other side and waited for Steve.
I REALIZED THAT I HAD TO DO THIS ON MY OWN WITH THE LORD, and not depend upon Steve to get me to where the Lord wanted me to be. Nor could I get him there. We were each responsible to trust in the Lord with all of our heart.
It was as if I was lifted back over the chasm for a moment so I could observe what was taking place with Steve and the others.
Several of the individuals who were irritated that others were not listening to their great rhetoric and interpretation of things, began to break loose and run forward while telling everyone how they were going to make it across the gap/chasm. Several of them literally walked off the edge of the cliff into the chasm due to not paying attention, and fell completely to the bottom.
OTHERS WERE FIGHTING AND SEVERAL WERE IN FEAR AND WOULD NOT ATTEMPT A LEAP OF FAITH.
They wanted to build a structure or devise a plan to get them there. Their lights were flickering very low by this point.
Steve finally said, “I have to go”, and he too, took a running leap of faith and threw his arms upward, eyes closed, trusting in the Lord’s provision to get him over the chasm. He met me standing on the other side of this wide gap.
IMMEDIATELY WE BECAME MEMBERS OF A LARGE ARMY.
Everyone was dressed in a white robe and had different colors of sashes to indicate which battalion or team of army members they were marching with.
Everyone’s headband with the lamp on the front of it was brilliantly white and the lamps were shining intensely! Everyone was in order and marching in unison, with thousands of members.
OVERHEAD THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE ARTILLERY FIRE TAKING PLACE IN THE SKY.
It seemed as if there were missiles and different kinds of weaponry clashing above us, but we were all marching calmly and firmly in unity and we knew we were marching under the direction of our Leader, King, Jesus Christ.
Shortly after this surprising vision I “came to myself” again and sat there and pondered what I had seen, for a very long time.
Steve and I have often talked about this and have often shared the details with each other again as we l pray and ask the Lord why he would show it to us at that time, and what we were being prepared for.
CHRISTIAN ALLEGIANCES ARE “STRANGE AND STRAINED AFFAIRS”
Many denominations and non-denominational groups as well as progressive and New Age influenced churches have chosen to embrace a corporate world structure and more eagerly, “hunker down” into a “murky version” of the word of God.
Many have embraced the cultural pressure to push away pure living, and interpret the word of God to fit the current day embracing of immoral sexuality and freethinking on many levels.
THE CURRENT BLATHERING INTELLECTUALS OF THE ERA mock and criticize those who choose to live a morally and biblically pure and truthful application of God’s word.
You know, It just not "cool or hip" right now to not be a little edgy and nasty!
I believe that in the vision that I had, those who were elbowing and arguing and posturing while on their way to what they felt was an event (that would be in fact an important moment in the collective body of Christ), these individuals had “dimmed” their approach to allowing their minds to be renewed and cleansed by the word of God. I believe the headbands that weakly flickered with the mining lights were symbols of what they fed their minds with, weakening their discernment.
THOSE WHO WERE FOCUSED ON HAVING THEIR MINDS RENEWED by the word of God, being illuminated by his word and having their minds renewed had no wavering or angst taking place.
Those that were fighting and pontificating the most, had the dimming lamps that flickered and seemed to short out, and they insisted that adaptations and adjustments could be made according to the way that they interpreted faith and how to walk with Christ.
THEY REFUSED TO LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE AND THEY REFUSED TO HAVE ANY KIND OF UNITY, BUT NEEDED TO PUSH FORWARD TO PROVE THEIR POINT.
When Steve kept telling them in the vision that they had to be unified and that they had to be humble and to humbly care for one another as brothers in the Lord, they became all the more enraged, condescending, and began to rush ahead in arrogance and with great irritability.
ONE INDIVIDUAL WAS WALKING BACKWARDS lecturing everyone and literally fell over the cliff edge into the chasm, screaming all the way down.
SO WHERE ARE WE?
Anyone who is doing all they know to do to have a close walk with the Lord right now at this time, who desires to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches and us individually, is fully aware of the deceptive clouds of wickedness and filth hovering over the world.
LYING HAS BECOME AN HONORED AND CUNNING ATTRIBUTE in order to confuse, control, and break other human beings.
Sadly, many in the faith have chosen to become rabid political activists to the point that it’s all that they devour and think about day and night.
They shun anyone who will not listen to them and certainly have embraced on many levels, the message of a “one world unified socialist lifestyle”. This is where a great delusion has been allowed to deceive many. Second Thessalonians 2:11 warned us about this!
“Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.”
THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we have quite the strong warning about how it was going to roll out and unfold. (I think that we are already there.)
“So! Understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, but treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but they deny its power. Avoid such people.”
WOW! AVOID THESE PEOPLE?
These are strong and difficult words to hear aren’t they?
When I was forerunning ahead in the vision, I believe it was a indicator of a prophetic forerunner seeing the things to come as well as seeing what God was asking of his people, as the world became more corrupt and dark, and decisions that were difficult that were coming, were about to be made.
THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS RUNNING I WAS WATCHING AND LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THAT MY FEET WOULD NOT TRIP, and when I came to the edge of the chasm I knew that I had to completely abandon myself, to everything that I could possibly fashion or create in my mind, leaving behind the hopeful use of any personal skills to get to the other side of where God wanted me to be.
THERE WAS NO POSSIBILITY TO RUN AND JUMP AND MAKE IT ON MY OWN.
I had to abandon myself to the fact that God said to take a leap of faith. That I must trust Him spirit, soul, and body, to be moved into position in His kingdom where I would be in unity marching with His great army of servants.
Somehow in my spirit, in the vision, I knew that Steve was going to be okay and also knew that we had to individually make a choice to trust God completely with our lives, no matter what difficulties we were about to face.
There was great sadness on Steve’s face when he turned around and knew he had to now leave those who were rushing ahead and jumping or still arguing on the edge of the chasm, and that it was his time to risk everything and take a step of faith out into the unknown.
The minute Steve arrived on the other side of the chasm with me we were side-by-side marching to the sound of thousands of feet in unison and voices praising God. There was a look of determination and sobriety on every face that was in every battalion of people, but everyone knew why they were there, and what they were being assigned to.
The flashes of light and military type of war going on above us was constant but no one broke rank and everyone was marching in the battalion that they were a part of. Praise and powerful prayers were coming out of all of all of the people’s mouths as they raised their hands forward in honor of what was up ahead, which I believe was King Jesus himself.
In Joel 2:11 it says
“The Lord utters his voice before his army,
For his camp is exceedingly great;
He who executes his word is powerful.
For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome;
Who can endure it?”
NOW, I WILL NOT PRESUME TO TRY TO UNPACK ALL THAT IS GOING ON IN THE EARTH TODAY, nor will I say that I understand all of the applications of the book of Revelation or End Time thoughts.
What I will say is that the Lord has told us that the difficult days would come and that antichrists and deceivers would rise up from among us, even trying to deceive the very elect, God’s own precious, set apart children.
1 John 4:3 tells this clearly!
Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
You see, This is a time where God is already showing those who have ears to hear what He is saying and that we are being called to take great steps and leaps of trust and faith in Him, like we have never, EVER done before.
IT’S SCARY OUT THERE IN THE WORLD, and tyrants and wicked men and women defy and mock anything that interferes with their corruption and filth. They are absolutely not interested in the sound of the voice of the Lord or in his people challenging them. But this is where our faith and trust in God must exceed and excel.
It is a time where you and I must continually and constantly renew our minds by intentionally reading and listening to the word of God.
HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DO PEOPLE CHECK THE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATES and news feeds on their phones and I Pads? Is this where the light of Christ is found and minds are renewed?
No. It’s a place where distractions and debates and the opinions of man drown out truth and any trust in God.
RUN AWAY FROM THE PACK
Believers! Get a firm pace going in your pursuit of the truth!
Be aware of those snares and rocks placed there to intentionally get you to change course or quit and become part of the world’s narratives!
There’s no need to figure out what you are going to do
in tough times if you stay close to the word and voice of God!
He absolutely WILL guide you, and His word IS the lamp for your feet and the light that will keep your path lit up as you journey through dark days!
"Your word is a lamp to my feet , AND a light to my path.
IN CLOSING, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ALLOW THE LORD, TO DO A DEEP PURGING AND SEARCHING OF YOUR HEART.
Don’t push away where he is trying to get you to give up your own, personal opinions about how things are to be done in a time where recklessness and chaos are rewarded.
Get quiet and be still in his presence, and ask him to tell you exactly what to do.
HE WILL DIRECT YOU THROUGH HIS WORD!
He will bring people across your path who are either like-minded or who will point the way to absolute sustaining truth.
Stay away from those who are so full of themselves, and who love the sound of their own voices, so that there is no room for tenderness and dialogue for a soul that is hungering after God.
YOU AND I ARE RIGHT NOW, A PART OF THE GREAT ARMY OF GOD.
We are to march to the sound of His voice and have our voices raised in praise of who He is and in declaration that we are of another Kingdom.
Even if it seems as if nothing is changing or that God is at a distance, we are not to walk by how we feel, or how things look around us.
We are to be determined to be in union and in communication by the spirit with the Spirit of the living God.
Ask the Lord to draw you close to him.
Choose to run after him!
Don’t wait for others to lead you or guide you to answer the questions that you have in your heart right now. Jesus by the Holy Spirit is able to speak clearly to you and he is able to give you direction, because, He IS the great I AM.
He IS wisdom.
He IS light!
And, He has promised…
…To never leave us in the dark.
Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
But will have the light of life.” - John 8:12

A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME - WALKING ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY - An Urgent Prophetic Exhortation
By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
It seems that with such prolific access to, web blogs and articles, many prophetic voices who are attempting to communicate spiritual metaphors and insights received from the heart of God to be shared and to hopefully soften the hearts of mankind, have perhaps been reduced to quick sound bites and what I would term "Scripture bites". It’s absolutely essential in these twisted and upside-down days to not look for a quick fix for the turmoil and hard things that we are facing.
WHAT DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT WANT TO COMMUNICATE TO US ABOUT “WALKING ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE”
“LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY”?
As I have searched this out knowing that the Lord was communicating something to me regarding these two statements, clear words of instruction, their potential, and warnings have begun to emerge. I share them from a trembling heart and an alert spirit.
And so first:
“WALKING ON THE EDGE OF A PRECIPICE”
Precipice - a noun
“A very steep rock face or Cliff, typically a tall one”
Figurative – “the country is teetering on the precipice of political anarchy”
The origin of the word comes from the late 16th century indicating a headlong fall. In the Latin it means abrupt descent.
This word in a nutshell expresses an anguishing anticipation of what could be a devastating and shocking “out of control” spin into oblivion, tumbling headlong into an unknown space, fully out of control, not knowing when the descent will end, and if anything will remain once it hits the pull of gravity.
“Pride goes before destruction,
A haughty spirit before a fall.”
(Off of a precipice) - Proverbs 16:18
“LIVING ON THE EDGE OF ETERNITY”
Because we live on the edge of eternity, we must not lose our heads. We must get our heads on straight and think in harmony with divine revelation. We must not be oblivious to the times that we are living in, nor should we be frightened and “act out” in panic. Our clear-headedness makes us able to pray as we should, seeking divine wisdom, guidance and the power to live faithfully in difficult times.
Jesus told His disciples things would go from bad to worse as the end of all things approaches.There will be social and political upheaval and natural disasters. There will be an intensification of opposition toward Christians so that fellow Christians begin to turn on each other and family members betray one another.
"Brother will hand over brother to death; A father will hand over his child.
Children will rebel against their parents and kill them. (Euthanasia?)
- Mark 13:12-13.
In such times of danger, love will fade, and people will abandon the self-sacrifice of love, for the sake of self-preservation.
SHAKEN AND STIRRED
The Holy Spirit impressed me some time back with this statement.
“Shaken AND Stirred”
My mind said, "You mean, shaken - not stirred!"
Again, a little while later, the same statement was impressed into my spirit one more time. “Shaken AND stirred”!
As I thought about this I began to realize that the Holy Spirit wanted to show me a prophetic insight, combined with the word of God regarding what His role in working within the hearts of believers looks like at this juncture in time.
WE HAVE HEARD MUCH ABOUT THE SLUMBERING, SLEEPY BRIDE.
A somewhat overgrown, youthful, well-fed bride. Oh! How she LOVES the candlelight, the romantic spirituality that feeds the soul and emotional longings of one yet to experience the commitment to a marriage! Everything has the beauty and sparkle of a fairyland or Disney type of fantasy and fireworks!
Surrounding this young maiden are gifts and beautiful tangible items reminding her of this youthful celebration of a pledge. The pledge to honor the one she loves. The gifts that have been given come from those who know that these will be needed to assist them in their life of growing together towards becoming one heart, one flesh, a single expression of their own family unit.
There are similar parallels to be fearlessly looked at regarding where and how the corporate bride of Christ has behaved on many levels. There has been a new term or word phrase created to address what would often be called a petulant, whiny, overindulged young woman who is in preparation for the big “blowout wedding day event”. The name for this is "Bridezilla”!
The basic picture is until SHE gets what she wants, the way she wants it, WHEN she wants it, anything or anyone in her way gets demolished if it does not satisfy her need to be fully noticed, in control and lavishly celebrated in all of her self-planned and applied concepts as to what a wedding should look like.
The problem is, in real life - the wedding and festivities are only a brief glimpse of what an actual joining of two in marriage looks like for the long haul.
And so when the party is over and the hard work begins, (and yes, it's hard work), the little rifts and storm clouds come to buffet and shape the couple into maturity.
BUT! IF THE BRIDE DOES NOT WANT TO MATURE…
…And desires to be treated like a young princess, much like the central character in a children's story, "The princess and the Pea" then no matter how others attempt to sweet-talk or ease her discomfort, eventually she becomes demanding and unsatisfied, regardless of what is offered to her.
And so the current state for many who make up the bride of Christ in its majority is one of a moody, discomforted and unfulfilled mate, waiting for her bridegroom to do FOR her, the things that she would rather not do for herself, and wants the bridegroom to bring her the comforts that she needs without having to labor, herself.
THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE PAID AN OVERWHELMING
AND COSTLY PRICE TO SHAKE OFF SLUMBER AND SELF INDULGENCE,
AND HAVE STEPPED OUT AS PATHFINDERS.
They are boldly declaring a warning about remaining a child and not maturing to the fullness of God's plan. They have warned over and over of the things that we are now seeing happen.
Imagine the shock, the total disbelief of the five virgins (Matthew 25) who slumbered and gambled with their futures so flippantly when in their drowsy and moody state missed the sound that the bridegroom announced, calling them to come, to travel the road now well lit, to a prepared place.
They were shaken! Shaken to the core and in total disbelief that things had changed and had been shaken in their drowsy existence so quickly! They were warned to be ready but figured just as always that they would somehow be able to manipulate their surroundings and discomforts and find a way to get their way!
And so has it been with the body of Christ the past few years, even though the voice of “The Beloved” has warned and shouted out.
He has sent prophetic voice after prophetic voice, teacher after teacher, evangelist after evangelist with a reoccurring message,
"You prepare the way!
You make the crooked ways straight!
Build up a pathway that you may walk upon to a holy place!
And it will be said:
"Build up, build up, and prepare the road!
Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people."
And yet, the bride in many ways has gone on her merry way expecting to be rescued from her slumber and folly. Walking ON THE EDGE OF THE PRECIPICE and Living On The Edge of Eternity.
BECAUSE OF GOD'S MERCY…
…THE BRIDE WILL CONTINUE TO BE SHAKEN
Shaken and shaken again, until she awakens from her slumber and admits to selfish ambition. She will be challenged to become the mature heart who walks with her beloved as her leader and Lord, not just simply as a provider of pleasures, fleshly sustenance, and entertainment.
“See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks.
If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?
AT THAT TIME HIS VOICE SHOOK THE EARTH,
But now he has promised,
"Once more I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH
BUT ALSO THE HEAVENS.” -Hebrews 12 25-27
The words "once more" indicates THE REMOVING OF WHAT CAN BE SHAKEN, Meaning, created things—SO THAT WHAT CAN’T BE SHAKEN WILL REMAIN.
… AND STIRRED
When someone is shaken awake from a deep sleep, the adrenaline begins to pump throughout the body and there is a keen and heightened alertness that begins to stir the senses.
“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God, which is in you!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God.” - 2 Timothy 1:6-8
“DEEPER AND DEEPER STILL”! SAYS THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT
It's no secret that the mainstream media has had a heyday with high profile personalities who have made claims to be devout Christians and then find them caught in the acts of extortion, embezzlement, infidelity, tax evasion, plagiarism and justification of personal indulgence at the expense of trusting donors.
Deeper and deeper still will the exposing and dissecting sword of the Word of God separate what is of the flesh claiming to be God, and what is of the Spirit, that is of God.
The folly and arrogance of those who minister with an elitist message will be brought to such public humiliation that even the hardest atheistic hearts will cringe at the ruthless mocking they will face.
As the Lord continues to shake out and stir up the dross in the life of each believer, there will be a corresponding stirring again to deep repentance.
Believers will come out of their groggy existence and begin to allow the deep purging and removal of willful perceptions about whom God has blessed and whom God might use for his glory, and for His purposes.
A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME
We are in a time like no other before.
There is a setting forth of a new and fresh openness to God's supreme directions.
There is a shaking off of youthful folly and petty “scrapping” over who imparts the greatest message or anointing.
Instead of well planned out speaking rosters for heavily and slickly advertised conference invitations, there will continue to be spontaneous and Divinely orchestrated gatherings throughout all nations.
It has already begun in several unannounced assemblies of like-minded hearts. It is being lit and ignited by the very hand of a Sovereign and brilliantly strategic God.
GATHERINGS LARGE AND SMALL, IN HALLS, HOMES, AND BARNS,
HAVE BECOME A FOCUS OF GOD'S HEART.
He indeed has an agenda.
It is to call the bride, His beloved, the one He lavishly spent all of his life's blood upon, to rise up from her slumber and be “shaken and stirred” to see that He is beckoning her deeper and yet deeper still to enter into a place of profound grace, mercy, and safety.
As the cry of repentance from dead works, and foolish masterminding of plans and programs (that only led the bride into morbid obesity) is stirred in the hearts of those ailing and sickened by the results of such overindulgence, deeper and deeper still will the Spirit of God draw his people into a communion of body, Spirit, and soul with his plan and purpose.
THOSE THAT WILL WAIT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN THEIR GATHERINGS…
… In their brokenness, in their humility, will begin to experience a hush of holiness falling upon their gatherings. The hovering presence of the pleasure of God will invade and flood the hearts of those who have come simply to fellowship in the power of His word and the Beauty of His Holiness. But! This cannot be a forced agenda or trend! This is not to be confused with what has been termed “The Anointing” or “The Holy Spirit Falling Upon God’s People.” Not a whisper, not a sound, not a song, nor a shout will be needed to attract this majestic treasure.
COMING SOON: THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY
I have been in meetings where believers who chose to enter into repentance and allowed the “dross work” of God to have full access to every corner of their souls, where, without warning or fanfare, the weight of God’s Glory invaded the room, the conference, and the meeting halls. It was as if a drenching, tangible mass of warmth and comfort wrapped itself around every human being present. It mattered not whether they were youthful or stooped over in the aging of their bodies.
The weight of the very glory and magnificence of the Supreme Being, The Sovereign One, was unmistakable.
Beautiful stillness and sweetness flowed in to and out of every soul present. All who were sitting or standing in this weight of glory did not need anyone to tell them the phenomenon that surpassed any of man's orchestrations was happening.
It didn’t last 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or 15 minutes. It came in waves and beckoned with the fragrance of mercy that only the “Still Small Voice” can infuse a room with.
IT SEEMED THAT THE MORE WILLING THE HEARTS OF THOSE IN THESE GATHERINGS WHO WOULD SIMPLY SIT IN THE WEIGHT OF THIS GLORIOUS SILENCE, THE RICHER AND DEEPER THE PEACE BECAME.
And then again, the Sweet song of the Lord would begin to sing out over the people and the people would begin to sing out the sweet song of repentance and devotion back unto the Lord.
IT SURPASSED ETHNIC AND CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS, NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL EXPRESSIONS AND HUMAN LANGUAGES.
Deeper and yet deeper still His presence, His glory, His weightiness would hover. In one such meeting, the waiting in His glory, in His presence, waiting upon Him, lasted for 45 minutes. No one wanted to leave, and no one had any agenda.
“Be still!” the Lord said. “Be still and know, that I am God!”
HEART WRENCHING REPENTANCE -- SEASON OF REFRESHING
“Repent, then, and turn to God, So that your sins may be wiped out,
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord." -Acts 3:19
There have been voices in the Body of Christ crying out that she must repent for her sluggishness, smugness, and presumption.
These voices will be amplified and multiplied throughout the year.
There will be required by the Lord, a setting apart in the heart of every believer. Deeper and deeper still will the call to shake off slumber, to once and for all lay down the sins and arrogance that easily traps and ensnares the life of the bride.
THE GREATER THE SURRENDER
-THE GREATER THE INCREASE OF HIS GLORY
As each member of the body of Christ willingly steps in to the full scan of the Holy Spirit's convicting radiance, a fresh awakening of the empowering courage and strength of Christ as the glorious bridegroom will be brought to the forefront.
He will be the central focus and no longer will the bride lag behind in adolescent drudgery and laziness.
Wave upon wave of adoration will be lifted up as a love sacrifice to the Beloved One. And the weight of His glory will shake and rock religious agendas and nations until they crumble and strip off the need for the noise and glitter that has cluttered and stifled the rightful honor due unto the King of glory.
When with deliberate consideration, the weight of God’s glory is given full access to flow as it begins to invade and permeate, be prepared for unbelievers who may be simply walking by a home gathering, a fellowship service, or a conference, to be drawn into your gatherings as if wooed or summoned by a fragrance or sound that they have had move them to go and seek out where it was coming from.
The Lord shall draw them and show them of His might, His presence, and you shall lead them to Him…
… And they shall find salvation.
LAST INSIGHT AND WARNING
Many are indeed "Walking on the edge of the precipice" and are "Living on the edge of eternity, not knowing where to turn or what to do, and will fall headlong into further disaster if they do not awaken from the hardness of heart, distractions and spiritual presumption that have become companions and corrupt habits.
Today you have heard His heart; you have heard His voice,
Harden not your heart, and instead quickly heed His voice.
Allow the shaking!
Willingly permit any condescension, elitism, control, manipulation, cowardly blame-shifting, hateful speech, competition, anger, mocking and vengeful and revengeful thoughts, to be once and for all purged out of your soul!
Your very spiritual life depends on what you do when on the edge of a precipice!
You can, “Jump headlong into recklessness”
“Fall into the hands of the living breathing God”.
“Take care, brethren,
That there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart
That falls away (headlong off of a precipice) from the living God.”
THE “END” IS AT HAND FOR EACH AND EVERY GENERATION EVERY SINGLE DAY, and their response to the gospel in this life determines their eternal fate.
Each generation is living on the edge of eternity,
and there will always be an urgency to respond to the gospel, for your response to the gospel determines your eternal destiny.

PLEASE TURN UP VOLUME ON THE PLAYER PROVIDED HERE!
While spending time preparing to share and minister, I was impressed to have the recording equipment running when I went to the keyboard to minister unto the Lord and then to people attending the meeting. As we worshipped and waited upon the LORD In His Presence, this recording was captured unedited and was recorded ‘live”.
It is a timely word to the Body of Christ right now as we are all sensing major events and many changes ahead. There is also a glorious time of adoration and worship right after the prophetic song in response to the LORD’s words sung over His people.
The flow and adoration and boiling of Praise and honor was so beautiful and unusual.
I think that you might just want to sit back and use this message and music
as a time to enter into the Glory of His Hand!
“HEAVEN IS WAITING TO POUR OUT MY GLORY”
Spontaneous Song of the LORD and Music
by Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
Heaven is calling you child
It’s opening up, the eyes of glory.
Heaven is calling out to all
Who long to hear My voice
And I speak a word of truth in an hour
when darkness seems to rule.
Even though the world is lost in pain and grief.
Open up your eyes and see My face,
I’m looking for a people of My grace.
Heaven is waiting to pour out my glory
As I roll back the veils of ancient time
But first I need to see; your love is just for Me.
And not simply of, the things I do through you.
It is a time – To look into the Master’s eyes.
It is a time – To look into the glorious skies of hope
So listen with your spirit man!
LISTEN with your spirit man
And raise up lives, holy to My Cause.
It’s not a time for dreams and wishes
No it’s not a time for that.
The time is now for those who will arise!
It is the season of MY dreams
It is the season of MY Destiny as King!
So look for the Glory, in each salvation story
That’s where I’ll manifest, My Hand.
I’ll manifest across the land
Come into the Glory! Come into the Glory!
Come into the Presence of My Hand!
Come into the Glory! Come into the Glory!
Come, into the glory of My Hand!

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
“The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great,
And he never lets the guilty go unpunished.
He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm.
The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet.”
We are in high-pressured days that seem as if
everything around us is in a great whirlwind.
The noise coming from
the media, the weather patterns, the sounds of war, the sounds of people crying
out for “Justice” and the sounds of people crying out because they feel like
there's been too much “In-justice”.
THE LORD WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK THESE WORDS IN THIS HOUR TO THOSE THAT HAVE EARS TO HEAR.
I know there are many
MANY prophetic words being ushered into the media outlets by so many people and
many have been spoken out in meetings and conferences. I wish that I could tell you that every
single voice you're listening to and every promise that is being made to you
regarding great wealth, great promotion, and great open doors are accurate. But
deep down inside of your spirit man, there is something stirring that you
cannot explain. It's that knowing that something is coming, that something has
begun out there in the world that we cannot see, but that we know in the
WE ARE IN A TIME LIKE NONE OTHER ON AND IN THE EARTH.
But, we do have
reference points to go to that tell of similar warnings and events that took
place in the past. We can remember when Lot chose to go for the things that
were more pleasing to his flesh and where he would have more abundant provision
and opportunity for business trade, but in the end he was stuck in the city
where there was nothing but illicit sex, graft, stealing and robbing, and
eventually total desolation and demolition. Even as the Lord provided a way of
escape, his wife still had the smell, the stench of the worldly life in her
heart, and she turned around to look one more time, fondly, over her shoulder,
at the home that she dreaded to leave behind.
LOOK AT THE DAYS OF NOAH WHEN HE WAS MOCKED AND LAUGHED AT. He
did not build that famous ark in a month! No! It took a long, long period of
time to build the ark out in the middle of nowhere! A simple study of
the Bible text shows that the time from when God told Noah to build the ark,
till the rain fell was no longer than about 75 years.
And yet he obeyed
God. If we read carefully, it says that
the Lord himself drew the animals to the ark. First, it is necessary to note
that Noah was not told to gather the animals. He was commanded only to build
the Ark, large enough for all the animals, and simply receive the animals when
they arrived. "And of every living thing of all flesh, . . . two of every
sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive" (Genesis 6:19-20).
I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU TO UNDERSTAND CLEARLY THAT THERE IS A
23:19 God is talking about a whirlwind that He has sent—a violent
windstorm. The false
prophets have said, "No bad is coming" (verse 17).God says, "Do they ever listen to me? I've said, 'I'm sending a whirlwind, and
it's going to fall on the heads of the wicked.' How dare they say that
everything is going to be okay!”
What is coming is bigger
and broader and wider and more destructive than anything else that we have ever
seen. I don't know if it's a nuclear war! I don't know if it's bizarre weather
patterns! And I don't know if it's not just a whirlwind of new kinds of ideas
being foisted upon mankind.
WHAT I DO KNOW IS THIS.
There are people who are
aware in the spirit that the only stronghold in place right now, a place of
immunity and safety, is in prayer and in in surrendering to all that the Lord
is asking of them. Many of you are stretched beyond the point that no one can
understand. Their financial resources have been given and given again to help
others, and yet their own supply seems to be dwindling. There are those who
have poured into the lives of others, poured into businesses, poured into
mentoring and training others, and yet it appears as if when they reach out
there's nothing left in the pantry for them.
THE LORD WANTS THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN GIVING, GIVING, GIVING -TO
CHECK YOUR HEARTS ONE MORE TIME.
If HE told you to give
and to serve and to sacrifice, then you can be guaranteed one thing. He does
not withhold from those who have been faithful.
“But this I say, He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and
he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. - 2 Corinthians
"And God, who
supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the
seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your
generosity." -2 Corinthians 9:10
I want to encourage you
right now in the spirit to understand the time that we are in, is a time when
nothing is making sense when trying to apply the past patterns and methods or,
the natural way of living. It's going to
take a determined, dogged, supernatural approach to understand the seasons the
days and the times.
God already understands
all of this, but He is not going to communicate to people who will then try to
communicate it in natural terms to those who don't have ears to hear. He's
going to communicate truth and wisdom to those were willing to allow their own
hearts to go into the fire of refining and changing the way that they have done
things in the past.
fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts
have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”
DIFFICULTIES REQUIRE NEW STRATEGIES.
Hard times require sober
minds and the determination not to be towed under by destruction and despair.
WE ARE NOT TO BE FOCUSING ON THE NOISE IN THE WHIRLWIND AROUND US IN
THIS WORLD, even though it sure does
draw our attention from the left and the right! We are to instead, focus on a
specific path, a narrowing of vision and a “one direction” place.
And what exactly does that all
It means that we are to seek
the Face of the Father.
And I mean seek and to seek, and to seek again. Continually.
“Seek the LORD and his
strength, seek his face continually.”
-1 Chronicles 16:11
We have got to break
down those things that are holding back the move of God in all denominations of
the Christian faith.
It will only come by Seeking His Face,Seeing His Heart
Hearing His Plans
for them, and for us!Oh how the Father wants to
bring a fresh move of his presence through His word and through His glorious
goodness and mercy!HE IS GOING TO BRING CORRECTION TO ALL DENOMINATIONS; all
walks that claim to have Jesus Christ as the head of the faith! So many smugly
think that because they have been charismatics or that they have been “spirit-filled”
they have a higher attained level of wisdom and discernment! This is nothing
but plain arrogance. If anything, there should be a more refined level of
humility and thankfulness for the fact that we have access through the gifts to
flow in the fruits of the Spirit.
“The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for
all that is exalted (and they will be humbled).”
THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD SAY THESE WORDS TO US TODAY
“Yes, the winds are
blowing and they are harsh winds and some are absolutely destructive winds!
Everything that does not stand under the power of my word and is not anchored
in Me shall be shifted and blown and shaken, and at times the winds of drastic
change will draw away the dross from the wheat. I am sifting and shaking, and
shaking and sifting again and again until my people understand they do not live
in a time where making demands and commands to Me operate well.
I am looking for a people
who will bow low enough before Me and get quiet and seek My will, MY WILL
for planet earth! This world is fading away quickly and mankind is corrupted
each day more and more to go the way of the flesh.
YOU MUST PUT AWAY THE NOISE! You must put away the
noise in your life and enter into the place were in the center of the storm is
the eye. MY EYE is upon the
righteous, My eye is upon those that are fruitful and faithful, and fruitful to
Me may be different than fruitful to you!
You cannot serve two masters,
yet many have tried to justify the shutting away of My convicting voice when I
have told them to go back and make right the situations where they have done grievous
damage to others who are supposedly their family members in Christ.
If you cannot repent and
get relationships right in the Kingdom now, I cannot use you to forge new relationships
in the future in My Kingdom. If you have bitterness, anger and jealousy in your
heart, it will manifest with shaming and name-calling, as well as condescending
and destroying another's capability to serve me well.
The days of selfish
ambition and immaturity are closely coming to an end. My light, My life, My word and My ways are perfect! I will not
deviate from My plan for the Kingdom of God in the earth. I am looking for a
people who will not listen to the accusation of others nor slander and destroy
their brother and sisters because of another's opinion, or perhaps because they
themselves were brought a loving correction or warning and instead, turned
around and shamed the messenger.
I see you all and I am
fully aware of the things that have been done in My name to hide behind selfish
ambition. A judgment time is coming!
Know this. I am about to
expose those who abuse the gifts, abuse their titles and abuse the finances
that I have deemed for the kingdom and I'm going to bring their names to the
forefront to save their souls!
Yes, the whirlwinds may
blow, and the storms and winds will be continuing to cycle and swirl. But I'm
looking for those who are willing to stay in the center of My Eye, where there
is quiet and there is calm and there is discernment, direction and wisdom for
these devastating days.
To those in the center of My Eye, I will pour out a wisdom
beyond mankind's understanding and they will rise up and have the words that
will bring direction, correction, and light into dark places.
The eyes of the Lord keep watch
but he overthrows the words of
"For a man's ways are before the
eyes of the Lord, and he ponders all his paths."
Stand prepared, for I'm
doing this thing regardless of whether man is ready or not. I am that I Am and
I will have my way in the earth, says the Lord of Hosts.
is what the high and exalted One says-- He who lives forever, whose name is
"I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite
and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart
of the contrite.”

TO LISTEN TO THIS MESSAGE AS A FREE PODCAST PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE AUDIO BUTTON AND CLICKA word from The Holy Spirit through Mary LindowThe English term "Pioneer" was originally derived from a French word meaning PICK AX. Later it was also used to communicate the idea of a foot soldier. The Germans use the term "trench digger" to get across the idea of a pioneer. PREPARE AND REPAIR THE ROADA pioneer during times of war was one who marched before an invading army to prepare and repair the road. They did everything from clearing away barricades to setting mines for destroying the works of the enemy. PIONEERS ARE FORERUNNERS AND SCOUTS. Like Jeremiah, a pioneer is one who goes ahead of the crowd to remove obstructions for the purpose of preparing the way for others that must soon follow. "See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant." (Jeremiah 1:10) THESE PEOPLE DO NOT SET MINES AND “BLOW UP” MOUNTAINS OF UNGODLINESS JUST FOR THE THRILL OF WATCHING THINGS BLOW UP! No, the pioneer understands that it is his job to prepare the way and make it easier for others to enter into the unmistakable presence of Jesus Christ.When there are earth shifts or earth “quakes” occurring in the plates of the soil of "Terra firma" - there are shakings, upheavals, and literally fully destroyed old pathways, roads and highways, as well as, the bringing down of structures and habitations.WE AS PEOPLE ARE REALLY GOOD AT WEARING THINGS OUT!We wear out people, policies and procedures to ad nauseum! And so, we wonder why the Father must bring those “times of refreshing” only after we repent and deal with our tendencies to want to have everything lined up, functioning like well oiled machines, and…"Controlled!" “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, That times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3:19THE FATHER HAS NEVER STOPPED CREATING! He has never ceased to impart brilliant creativity and mind-blowing new discoveries to mankind! He makes things new EVERY MORNING!It is what we do to God’s creative plans that sour the way it was intended to produce fruit and seed.AS THIS NEXT WAVE OF GOD’S DIVINE PLAN BEGINS TO BE “REVVED UP” IN THE EARTH, FOLKS WILL BEGIN TO ATTEMPT TO ARTICULATE AND DEFINE IT. MANY WILL TRY TO SELL IT, CAPITALIZE ON IT, AND……TRY TO CONTAIN IT.I FOREWARN YOU FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD- Just as the manna went moldy if kept or “contained” longer than allowed, so will man’s attempts at trying to “bottle” and distribute this Fresh Wind of Glory which is beginning to manifest from the Throne of God.SPIRITUAL BALANCE AND A WARNING TO THE SENIORS AMONG USMoses arrived at the “gate” of his final destiny, the Quest for the Promised Land, but...it was not just the command of the Lord in action that He was required to model. NO! The attitude of His heart towards those coming up underneath him was what God became angered at and…which disqualified him from entering the Land of Promise. The New “Wave of Divine Glory and provision for another generation."And Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation before the rock and Moses said to them, Hear now, you rebels; must WE bring you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand and with his rod he smote the rock twice. And the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their livestock. Num 20:10-11 These people having no water were frightened and rebellious toward Moses, calling out insults and being nasty. (When people are immature and desperate, this is characteristic of their behavior.)At first Moses went to the Lord about all this, instead of retaliating with name-calling. Then after the Lord told him to "tell" the rock to give forth water, Moses in his frustration and impatience yelled at those people calling them "rebels". IMPATIENCE IS BROUGHT ABOUT BY "PRIDE"It's pride that lifts us up to the place of thinking we're better then others, therefore having the right to be impatient with them.God told Moses to speak to the rock in front of the people and from this rock water would come, giving the people the opportunity to see the power of God working on their behalf. But Moses in hitting this rock went directly against what the LORD told him to do. He not only hit it once, but he hit it twice! This being rebellion robbed God of any glory, as well as going much deeper then Moses realized.Moses had a life long struggle with anger, and he did not master it. He modeled the anointing with a crusty anger and a withering exasperation…at the people’s cries and need for provision."Fathers, don't exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master."Ephesians 6:4 (MSG)MAY THOSE AMONG US WHO HAVE HAD YEARS OF “PIONEERING AND DESERT WALKING” BE EVER SO CAREFUL IN THIS NEXT KINGDOM DISPENSATION to not become sour, harshly opinionated, or brash, and in so doing...strike out in anger at those now coming up asking the question of; “Where is the water the fresh cleansing drink coming from?” REMEMBER:“From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; And from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Luke 12:48b THE BLOW TO YOUR HEART WILL BE THE DISQUALIFICATION OF FINAL FRUITFULNESS. The Lord will send in an Aaron to finish the work. One who has learned the lesson of humility and trusting only in the Voice of God. Not simply dogged and teeth grinding follow-through without mercy or patience. IF YOU ARE PREACHING THE KINGDOM, THEN YOU WILL RADIATE WHAT THE KINGDOM IS! Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit.“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, But righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 14:17 (NKJV)TO THE NEW BREED OF FATHERS AND MOTHERS AT THE GATE OF GENERATIONAL INFLUENCEThe Spirit of God would caution those of you now arriving at the “gate” of generational influence, to weigh in the balance of Heaven - your heart motives. Can you truly say that you are positioning yourself to be a mentor, one who trains fresh runners, in how to grab hold of the “passing of the baton” correctly in order that the next leg of the race is run fluidly and without stumbling? For you see! That is what you have been painstakingly prepared for over the past few years or more! If you are fixated on finally becoming a “Voice” so that others might know of your personal greatness and oozing impartations, you too will be disqualified from the weight of glory that is going to fall upon the saints in this season. There is still time to adjust the insecurities, the hidden sins of presumption and ego stroking, and to simply… surrender. GOD IS LOOKING FOR THOSE THAT WALK WITH THE HEART OF DAVID, AND BUILD ONLY FOR HIS GLORY ALONE.Solomon answered, "You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day. 1 Kings 3:6FORERUNNERS ALSO BRING UP THE REAR! Not only will forerunners be pioneering pathfinders but they will also cheer on, “shepherd” and watch over the flanks of new and eager, younger legions of emerging pathfinders and “seers.” They will parent, counsel, advise, and pick-up and motivate the stragglers, the weary, and the shattered, bringing them into restoration and a family embrace. WHEN “STARS” START TO IMPLODE“What happens is that as the star's outer envelope ex-pands rapidly while the core collapses rapidly, a vacuum is developed at the interface of the core and the envelope. The result is comparable to what happens when a building is demolished. An implosion occurs; matter begins hurtling itself inward to the intensely hot core of the star. "An imploding star is a very dangerous place to be.” It’s like pouring gasoline on a fire. ~ Bob Sheldon-Astronomer at Behlen Observatory THIS SEASON WILL BE ONE THAT SHOCKINGLY BRINGS AND END TO THE "SUPER NOVA" CONCEPTS IN MINISTRY. People will be sickened and again “worn out” by the demands, and pumping of wallets and overtaxed service to bloated egos and assumed power players. Things will be imploding on the inners core level of ministries not steeped in humility and equal sharing of goods, service, and prayer, although for awhile, they will still appear to shine brighter and brighter.When the implosion is in full blaze, many will be devastated and “burned” by idol worship and “star gazing” rather than seeking the Daystar of Heaven.THE SHIFTING OF THE “SPIRITUAL SOIL” OF THE EARTH HAS BEGUN, and what remains after shaking will be the sounds of simplicity, purity, and a magnification of the Worship of God, not the worship of God... in man. THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS BROUGHT WORD AFTER WORD OF PREPARATION AND PROMISE TO GOD’S PEOPLE. LET THOSE THAT HAVE EARS TO HEAR, LISTEN TO WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING... …AND HEED ITS VOICE.*****************************************Duplication and sharing of this writing is welcomed provided that complete source and website information for Mary Lindow is included.
