RED ALERT: A VISION OF THE COMING STORM
“THE FORCE OF GOD’S POWER OVER THE EARTH”
By Mary Lindow – through the Holy Spirit
 
BEFORE WE BEGIN:
I’m going to kindly ask you to please be patient and take the time to listen to this as a crucial podcast, due to the important timing. I have recorded the entire vision as well as what the Lord has shown me as to what it all means in the audio form, but I will only be able to share with you in the text form here when I explained a little bit about what happened in this tremendous vision. It takes so much bandwidth to put the entire message into the text and it really is a very tedious and difficult process.
Please listen! The vision alone is in the notes below.
 
I am returning now with a podcast that I had promised to have follow the previous podcast where I talked about “A time of review, before the new”. This podcast is one that I have sat on for about a year, due to the fact of it being pretty intense for me receiving this from the Lord.
Trying to figure out how to put into words what you see in the spirit in a vision from the Lord, and understanding it and then, scripturally applying what you have seen and learned is daunting. For me it’s a very serious and holy thing, and I wanted to make sure that I really presented it at the time and in the way that the Lord would want me to.
We’re going to get started with that but before I do I want you to know that at the end of my podcast I will be sharing about two different conferences that the Lord has opened the door for me to go and minister at, so those of you who often if ask if I’m going to be in your area, those doors and opening up again since the WuhanCovid19 bio weapon attack on our world, so you can look that up at the end and also my website has all the information you would need about those conferences.
 
THIS VISION HAS A LITTLE BIT OF GROUNDWORK IN IT.
In my last podcast I shared about a vision or a word from the Lord that I had in 2016 called, “The Great Coming Whirlwind” and I also shared about what the Lord was wanting us to see and was adjusting what we needed to look at in our hearts, regarding where we are at right now in this time on the earth.
 
I BELIEVE THAT THIS VISION THAT I HAD FROM THE LORD IS SO “RIGHT NOW” IN THE TIMING, THE PRECISION TIMING OF THE LORD TO SHARE. I am almost shaking a little bit as I share it and I feel a little bit of trembling sharing it, because I know we are coming up to a climax of something in the earth, and God is not mocked, and he is not a fool, and God is not afraid, nor is he worried.
 
HE WILL NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, ALLOW WICKEDNESS TO RULE AND REIGN.
But in that process, God does a deep work within his own people, because if there’s wickedness in his own he must Judge fairly and rightly, and he’s so good to give us time to get repentance going, to be accountable, to get the help we need. When we don’t, he has to bring his pure and righteous hand of judgment, and he has to do “cleaning house” because, God does not tolerate darkness in his light.
 
I’M GOING TO BEGIN TO SHARE THE VISION WITH THE SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT STARTED WITH THIS VISION.
It’s the picture that you will see on the podcast graphic itself.
I’d like you to take a look at it and please, have mercy and grace over me, because trying to put a graphic together and combine it all with what I saw, and how I saw it, was a challenge. The scripture verse that started this vision was very intense and of course, when we don’t understand what the word is always saying sometimes we’re a little not sure what we do with this, so I did a lot of studying and praying and referencing, before I chose to really open myself up to recording this.
 
THAT SCRIPTURE VERSE IS NAHUM 1:3-4 
‘The Lord is slow to anger but great in power, the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up, and he makes all the rivers run dry.”
 
I WAS IN OUR LOWER LEVEL IN OUR BASEMENT AND I HAD BEEN WORSHIPING, JUST TALKING TO THE LORD, PRAYING ABOUT ALL THAT WAS GOING ON IN THE EARTH, and began to get up to walk towards the area to go up the stairway and all of a sudden I felt this presence of the Lord come on me, and I know when this happens, he’s getting ready to speak to me or show me something, or I’m being called into immediate intercession for something. 
 
I’VE JUST LEARNED TO STOP AND STAND THERE AND SAY, “LORD WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, TO KNOW?
I’M HERE, SPEAK TO ME.”
I was just absolutely feeling weak, just like I was going to faint. I was under such a strong drawing to his presence, and so I began to walk and went upstairs and went into my room, a guest room we have, but I use it as my reading and praying room, and sat down in the chair there.  About the time I sat down I was, (and I share this, it’s so uncomfortable to share when you have these experiences) because the world and often in charismatic environments, either they mock what happens to someone or unfortunately, in Spirit-filled charismatic environments, things get hyper sensationalized, to the point that someone’s having a vision every moment, every five minutes they’ve got a word from the Lord and they’re rushing to post it or print it (and that’s up to them), but we tend to get very critical and may be jaded that when something authentic really happens to someone we immediately put it through this filter of,  “I don’t know”,  and so I understand your possible hesitancy to say, “we’ll see”.
 
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH TESTING A VISION OR WORD OF GOD, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD, but what I’m saying to you is I come before you with this because the Lord has a warning and a promise in it, and I am compelled by him to share this as quickly and as succinctly as I can with you now, to the best of my ability, by the Spirit of God.
 
So, I was sitting in the chair and I am now suddenly standing out in a barren area, up on a slight hill, and I was looking out over the land in front of me, and in the back distance I can see some slight hills so I kind of recognize the horizon, maybe some foothills in Colorado, and there was a sun trying to somewhat set in the background, like it was at the low level before sunset in Autumn in Colorado. It kind of just rests there in a yellow type of reddish tint.
I was standing there looking at all of this, my physical body was standing looking and yet I was above it in the spirit, watching this take place and the Holy Spirit was with me, instructing me about what I was to be observing.
 
NEXT TO ME WAS JESUS;  HE WAS STANDING THERE BY MY SIDE.
Now before I step forward I want you to know that I had no idea why in this vision Jesus was the way he was, until after I’d had the vision because a week later we had been helping care for a little foster baby girl, and a brand new baby grandson. Our youngest son had gotten food poisoning, so we went down to help care for these children. The little girl tended to be very ill because she needed medical care and was forever getting respiratory infections.  So, we were cleaning and doing everything parents do to help and assist, and of course, holding the new grand baby!
 
I WAS IN THERE WITH CLOROX, GETTING “EVERYTHING” WITH CLOROX and my face was probably down in germs, so what we did not know at the time, is that my son probably had a second round of Covid, and was reacting to it, it was a different strain, but the little girl had RSV, so both my husband and I came home, and shortly within 48 hours began with symptoms of massive RSV also the “big gun” Covid strain that everybody got, and in that process it was weeks of fighting to get well. Colorado forbade any kind of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Of course we’d been taking all the vitamin protocols and so on, but we were able through missionaries, to get ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, but we did not know we had what we had until it got so bad. 
 
WE KNEW WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ON OUR OWN WITH THE LORD, and we didn’t want anybody coming to take care of us, because we didn’t want to infect them.
 
I WAS LYING ON THE BED AND, JESUS WAS STANDING BY THE BED. I WAS AT A POINT WHERE I KNEW I HAD ONLY A FEW SHALLOW BREATHS LEFT, THAT THIS WAS IT!
I was walking in the “valley” of the shadow of death, and I have learned since then, that there is death and there’s “the valley of the shadow of death” where you were in the shadow of it, that it’s right next to you, but there’s a shadow of death over you, and it says that, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you are with me”, and sure enough, during that time when I had the last two shallow breaths that I thought that I was going to take, my words to Jesus were, “if I die and I don’t wake up, I have to sleep now, then I’m with you.” I was travailing and crying for a good 48 hours because I was sad. Then the other part of me said, “Lord, if I wake up and I’m still here then use me to the fullest all that you can until it IS my time!”
 
I WAS EXPECTING BELLS AND WHISTLES AND ANGELS,
AND YOU KNOW! THE SMELL OF FRANKINCENSE AND SINGING BIRDS, AND THE GLORY OF GOD TO COME AND RAISE ME UP OFF THE BED!  
I REALLY DID EXPECT IT!
  
BUT WHAT HAPPENED INSTEAD was that there was a steady “non-emotional”, INTENSE PRESENCE that stood by my side, and the voice spoke “I AM”, and it was with authority! 
 
IT WASN’T MESSING WITH ME AND ANYTHING EMOTIONAL. It was a fact that whatever he was in that moment, sustained me.  I could see in the spirit a sash across him and I could see him holding my hand.  I was breathing so shallowly and I said, “I’m sorry Jesus, I have to go to sleep. Whatever happens, I trust you.”
And I did! 
 
WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS TOTALLY AWARE AND AWAKE AND KNEW THAT I HAD LIVED, (it was many hours later) and I immediately heard the Holy Spirit say, “Start the Ivermectin!” 
From that point on I won’t go any further, because that’s when the healing process began, but I wanted to tell you about Jesus standing by my side looking at me intently, holding my hand in the spirit. There was not any kind of crying and he wasn’t showing sadness or compassion or emotion. He WAS the sovereign presence holding me together.
 
 
 NOW WE GO BACK TO THE VISION.
I am standing there, Jesus is with me I’m looking out over land, and the land was so parched! The ground was curling up and looked dry like rectangle sizes, you could just probably pull a piece up like a slab of cardboard that has sat out in the sun, and was curled up around the corners. The entire landmass in front of me was covered in this parched, dry desert, and I was looking at it saying, “it’s so dry! There’s just nothing of moisture here!”
 
I was asking Jesus, “What am I looking at, what am I seeing?” Jesus was just looking at me saying, “You’re learning, I want you to observe, you’re to learn to take this in.”  I kept looking and seeing this, as I was looking out further on the horizon. This was to the left of me Jesus was standing to the right of me.
 
I looked up past the shoulder of Jesus and in the distance to the right or him, I saw a swirling, boiling looking red cloud, and it was the color of terra-cotta, like garden pots that we used to put plants in, that earthy clay soil color. I’m watching this dust cloud boil and boil and grow larger and larger, and I’m getting a little concerned because it’s a pretty high in the sky, but it’s coming our direction, it’s kind of at a vanishing point angle. Here it comes, and it’s starting to make a noise, it’s swishing and beginning to drop the dust down on the ground and blow across this dry parched area as it began to come my direction. I was concerned and Jesus took me by the hand. It was again, “I AM here no matter what happens, no matter what comes, I AM!” 
 
Then I suddenly begin to see that the cloud is being pushed by something! Something is driving this cloud forward and it was a sleek dynamic train. I tried to make it look right in my art piece that I created for it, it’s not quite right, it was more sleek and dynamic, but it was the best I could come up with.
 
This train had these massive wheels that were turning, and you could hear the power, the dynamic power, the clicking, nothing was missing, not one cylinder was off, it was churning and churning and chuffing and chuffing. Nothing was going to stop the destination of this train.  It was driving a storm forward pushing the storm.
 
The sound became so loud and powerful that you tremble at the strength and the might, and the power of the force of this train! As it was moving up above us, the dirt of this cloud of dust was sifting down over Jesus and me. It was such a fine, silty reddish soil. I could see it gathering in the beard of Jesus, then his hair and in the vision I had much longer hair, it was falling down into my hair and on our arms when I was holding his hand. I could see it gathering on the sleeve of my arm and on his sleeve. Jesus kept looking at me, and as long as I kept referencing back to him as the storm was dumping this mass amount of whatever it was, the substance that was being driven by this force, driven out - driven over, as long as I looked at him, I had a non-emotional response, but a steady understanding that knew I was being held by a power greater than anything that could ever come against me.
 
This went on and on. The dust was so clogged and cloudy that I could just see the silhouette of Jesus, but I had his hand and we held our hands and stood there as this loud, powerful, dynamic train began to just roar over the top of us. Then I heard a voice shout out over the sound of all this and it was firm!  “It’s DUNAMIS! Dunamis! The Dunamis Power!”
 
I STOOD THERE JUST SAYING, “DUNAMIS, I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IN THE GREEK, IT MEANS DYNAMITE, DYNAMO, (saying this to myself in the spirit).”  I’m standing here in this vision trying to remember the power of that word as the train was passing and that word was written on the train, as I watched it finally pass by and begin to go further up in the sky and then pass by us.
 
SUDDENLY IT GOT QUIETER, AND IT WAS AN EARTH SHAKING VIBRATING STORM THAT WAS DRIVEN BY THIS FORCEFUL DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD.  Again, the Holy Spirit and I were standing up at the back watching this, watching Jesus and me at the same time, and the Holy Spirit was saying to me,  “watch, learn, observe.”
 
ONCE AGAIN JESUS TURNED HIS HEAD AND LOOKED OUT OVER THE VALLEY AND INDICATED TO ME, “I WANT YOU TO LOOK OUT HERE”.
AS I LOOKED, THE DUST HAD BEGUN TO SETTLE AND I COULD IDENTIFY THAT WE HAVEN’T BEEN MOVED,
Nothing was different, I’m in the same place, except the Horizon in the background looks the same, the sun is the exact same place it was, just about ready set, sitting in the same position in the sky, but the land that has been parched and curled up and dry, every single crevice or crevasse, every single surface was covered in this thick layer of this red dust. It had completely transformed into a different look, and different land.
 
AT THAT POINT I WAS JUST IN AWE AND I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT ALL MEANT AND THEN...
...WHAM!
I AM BACK OUT OF THE VISION AND SITTING IN MY CHAIR, gasping at what have I just had happen to me, and of course I started crying!
I WAS ASKING GOD TO SHOW ME “Father! Father! Jesus! Holy Spirit! What have you just shown me? What are you saying?”
 
Then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “These are things to come.
Learn about them, prepare, and I’ll tell you when to share.”

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”
  AND
“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
 
And Secondly:
“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.
 
SHAKEN!
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."
Isaiah 57:14
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”
Or
“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.”
-Hebrews 3:12
 
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.

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
 
Truth is slippery.
A lot more slippery than any of us want to admit.
And we do have to, in a sense, choose what to believe.
 
Pontius Pilate seemed quite comfortable with that. Jesus was "talking truth" and Pilate lived in a place of work where “truth” was meaningless. All that his employer cared about was results!
 
The world’s vision of truth is attractive.
It allowed Pilate go back to his home at the end of the day…it allowed the Priests to deal with that "problematic man Jesus" while still being able to eat the Passover. 
It sends the crowds home from the protest hoping that the rebellion will start soon and be successful. (That sure sounds familiar doesn’t it!) 
 
Pilate was dealing with those "pesky" Hebrews.
The poor guy is the governor and he can’t even get the latest group of complainers to come into his house because it’s Passover, that would make them “unclean,” and they wouldn’t be able to eat the sacred meal.
Now Imagine that!! 
Being the governor, and having to go outside to hear the complaints of your subjects? Your subjects whose "truth" meant that your palace was unclean? You can understand why the guy got maybe a bit sour.
 
His employer just wanted the people under Pilate to behave!
That was a pretty tall order among a people as fiercely independent as the Israelites. The Romans didn’t care all that much how order was maintained; they just wanted Pilate to "make it happen"! 
Israel after all, was a center of commerce, and disturbances, and rioting there were inconvenient and they were expensive.
All of this left very little time for Pilate to talk philosophy with this troublesome Jesus fellow. He needed results! 
"Truth" for Pilate meant keeping order, keeping peace, keeping his job. That’s what he chooses to believe in. Even so…he tried to give Jesus a fighting chance.
But the crowds? 
Well, they don’t cry out, "What is truth?"
But, they did CHOOSE what to believe.
 
Jesus has proclaimed a kingdom of truth.
THE truth that God’s will is realized
when we live lives of compassion and healing. 
 
A truth that we are all loved by God and called to live this love out for one another. It’s a truth that has stood the world on end…
...But the crowd decides instead to believe in the old standby.
The sword.
 
Barabbas the thief, who was a violent man, the kind of guy who is useful to a revolution, is the one they cry out for.
They want what they want…
..and so, aren’t really all that different from Rome or Pilate in their way of dealing.
They’ll trade truth for the hope of what they’ll see in terms of "results." 
 
And, we all too often...
…We choose on our own, what to believe as well. 
 
Repentance means "to turn" in the scriptures, to "turn away from.
But it’s not easy! 
And it doesn’t help that the words of our Master—(who stands in passive protest against the established powers of the world as he answers Pilate), has had his words mangled and misinterpreted over and over again by those who frankly, wanted Jesus to sound a little more like "them."
 
The world teaches us its version of truth.
The world teaches us to think: "It’s mine, I earned it."
Jesus says, "It’s a gift, share."
 
We learn to think, 
“They need to follow my rules." 
Jesus says, "The greatest rule is love."
 
We learn to think, "I’ll give when my needs are met." 
Jesus says, “Think that way and you’ll always need more.”
 
We learn to think, "me first."
Jesus says, "be last."
 
The world’s truth keeps you from ending up like Jesus. 
It gets you to resist taking a cross for what IS truth.
 
Believing in something means acting and sacrificing for something, and what Jesus wants from us is not our dying, but rather that we live a life dying to our own selfish ambition which most are VERY proud of. (They will tell you exactly how proud they are of their achievements and skills often, or, live secret lives of self gratification because THEY deserve the rewards!) 
 
The cry of God’s heart is that we would understand that,
the “way of God” is way beyond "our way". 
The way of God IS our call,
and that the way of God is the path to freedom.
 
In the end, we have to choose what to believe in. 
Fortunately for us, faith is also a gift, a gift God gives us.
But that doesn’t mean living it doesn’t take some effort. 
We are called to be light to this world.
We are called to care.
We are called to make the effort! 
 
Let's walk with our Master. 
Let's take the path of sacrifice, and let our lives reveal and radiate the joy of "living out God’s love" for others.
Perhaps then, the world will see that "what is truth"...
...Is truth.

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
CHILD OF MY DIVINE PLAN
The coming darkness will cause you no fear. My perfect love for you will cast out ALL fear! I will hold your hand and lead you in a way like no other. I will give you eyes that can see in the dark, but I will also hold your hand and lead you through the darkness.
For you, this present darkness will be an opportunity to help bring in the great harvest. I AM the Lord of the Harvest, and I will usher in a mighty and uncountable harvest!
Don’t’ try to count these souls don’t try to count them!
They will be coming from all directions and places and in many numbers. Those that are sitting in darkness are going to get up and run toward the light, those who are engulfed in darkness will clamor for the light.
My Chosen ones will shine bright in the darkness and they will point the way to Me. You will be like a lighthouse and a beacon in the dark and stormy seas.
YOU WILL REJOICE THAT YOU WERE CHOSEN
FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
Yes My Chosen Ones, this will be a time of Great Harvest! You have been prepared for this great day!
You are fit and ready, now, for service. I promise, you were chosen…
…For such a time as this!
CHILD DO NOT FEAR OR DREAD THE COMING DARKNESS! Welcome it as necessary for a part of the things I have planned! You will not listen to the voice of the enemy or fall into the deceits and the deceptions of his lies if you are walking in My truth. You will be free indeed! There is great peace and security in truth. It will save you from the entanglements, and snares and traps of the enemy.
So recognize, know and embrace the truth of My Word!
It is a Gift of My love for you. When you have My wisdom to rely upon, you see with the eyes of faith into the unknown. My child, the truth will set you free from the fear of failure. For when I am leading, I will never lead you to fail, but I will lead you to be victorious.
I WILL SET YOU FREE FROM THE FEAR OF MAN, For when I am on your side tell me – Who can rise up against you?
Who dares come against My child when I the Defender and I their Protector is present? My love and my loving care are a protective shield around about them. So stand up and shine!
ARISE CLOTHED IN LIGHT! I THE LORD SHINE UPON YOU!
Arise from the depression in which circumstance have kept you! Rise to a new life! Be radiant with the Glory of My presence! For the Glory is upon you! Even though darkness shall cover earth, and darkness and deep gloom will cover the people of the world, but I the Lord, will rise upon you! Though thick dark clouds shroud the nations, your new day is dawning. People will see my glory around you! So! Arise and be Glad! The Eternal Light- Shines upon YOU! - Isaiah 60:1-2
I The LORD shall preserve you from all evil: I shall preserve your soul. I The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, And even for evermore. -Psalm 121:7- 8
I AM YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR SALVATION—
So why should you be afraid?
I AM your fortress, protecting you from danger, So why should you tremble? When evil people come to devour you,
When your enemies and foes attack, They will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds you, Your heart will not be afraid. Even if you are attacked, You will remain confident.
JUST ASK OF ME - ONLY ONE THING. Let it be the thing you seek most— To live in the house of the Lord all the days of your life, Delighting in My perfect ways and meditating in My Secret Place.
For I will conceal you there when troubles come; I will hide you in My sanctuary. I will place you out of reach on a high rock. You will hold your head high above the enemies who surround you. In my Secret Place, You will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, Singing and praising ME, the Lord of Glory - with music. Psalm 27: 1-6 I
I CONTROL HUMAN EVENTS - I GIVE RULERS THEIR POWER…
… AND TAKE IT AWAY
My name will be praised forever and forever. I AM all-powerful, and I know everything. And I am the source of wisdom and knowledge. I reveal Deep and Secret things. I know what is in the darkness. Daniel 2:20-22
MY CHILD. MOVE INTO A SIMPLER LIFESTYLE
Move nearer to My fire and My Presence where the pillar warms in the night seasons and the cloud shields from peril during the day! When you are so consumed by My glory and presence that you must do everything you can to live in it and near it, you will be a blessed person!
Blessed is the man who longs for more of Me.
To flourish in My Presence means to have no other love focus but My will! And, No secret agendas or hope of personal greatness in reward for your efforts!
Blessed are your when you persevere under trial, because you have stood the test, You will receive the crown of life, That I the Lord have promised to those who love Me. -James 1:12
WISDOM COMES FROM GOD ABOVE Intelligence comes from man’s own efforts. A Godly Character reflects inclusiveness of others, compassion, patience, brutal self-examination and honesty.
Charisma is one with flair, influence, and human wit.
It draws others into a web of hope and promise, but rarely sacrifices it’s own agenda and comfort.
Child, bow down in a holy fear of My Almighty ability to “scan your inner thoughts” and ask Me to truly renew in you a clean heart, clean motives, and clear pathways.
TO KNOW OF MY WAYS, YOU MUST KNOW ME!
To Know Me, you must spend time with ME. To spend time with Me, you must purpose, to put aside the lists of things you have to do before you can spend time with Me."
"ORDER YOUR DAYS FIRST IN MY PRESENCE, and watch the desires of your heart be fulfilled.
Man and his counsel will always fall short of the full truth of My Wisdom. I have blueprints and a Master plan for so many things yet to build upon in your life."
"COME. LET US WALK AGAIN TOGETHER."
"You are the temple, the house of My Holy Spirit. I desire to build you up in spiritual strength as you walk in prayer and conversations WITH ME. "I will fulfill your longing for peace and direction as you step up again into a heavenly trust and rest."
"PEOPLE WILL CHANGE, MAN WILL FAIL YOU, friends will turn, if they are not seeking My Voice above the clamor of the day. And you My child will fail others, if you listen to your own voice of reason and intelligence.
As you turn to Me, you will see My compassion poured out upon you and you will then have My power of pure godly compassion and Wisdom-driven grace to pour out on others."
Seek Me-with all of your heart, your longings, your heartaches, your dreams. And I will be there with arms of strength to rescue you from Despair."
You will seek me and find me-
When you seek me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:13

A Spontaneous Prophetic Song/Word From the Lord
By the Holy Spirit & Mary Lindow
 
Dear Listener/Reader,
As I was praying and worshiping the Lord tonight, crying out from my heart over so many devastating world events, tragedies, (and my own personal trials,)  the weight of the glory of the Lord’s presence overshadowed my heart and the following spontaneous music and prophetic word/song, began to flow out from the Heart of God. 
It’s raw, unedited and timely.
Please…. Listen to His Message. Take time to hear Him.
  
"LISTEN AS I SPEAK A WORD OF PROMISE!
IT COMES FROM THE THRESHING FLOOR" © 
A Spontaneous Prophetic Song/Word From the Lord
By the Holy Spirit & Mary Lindow
 
I hear the cry of everyone weary and worn.
I hear the cry of those saying they're done. Done!
 
I hear the questions of all of the earth saying,
“Why? Oh why,  oh Why?”
“Why won’t your do something?
Change the world!!”
 
I hear the sound of the hearts of the weary,
I hear the sounds of their sighs
 
I hear the sound of the Mothers and Fathers
I hear their crying out! I HEAR them! Crying OUT!
 
I hear the sound of the abundance of rain,
I hear the hearts of that right in this season.
I hear the hearts and I hear the voices of those, who want to
Reason away the truths that I have written down with My Blood.
 
I DO NOT CHANGE!
I WILL NOT CHANGE FOR MAN!
I WILL NOT CHANGE… FOR MAN!
 
Listen as I speak, A Word of Promise
Cloaked in the truth for those who have ears to hear.
 
The times, they will grow much darker and harder,
Many will shed, so many tears
Until they give away, their very souls to me ALL to Me.
And say, “I’m Done with Me! God! I’m done with me!”
 
I Long to hear the voice of My People saying,
“Have Your Way!
“Have Your Way!
“Have Your Way!”
 
Distractions and things of the earth,
they will come in a flood!
And you’ll battle your soul!
Distractions and lies, and people and blood
will come, to weary the soul.
 
You must bow low, again.
You must bow low, again!
And see that I am only found
On the threshing floor.
 
I am only found, when you close the door
to the worldly cries and sighs,
And things you’re told that’s freeing.
 
I long for a Voice for Me…
…That comes from the Threshing floor
 
Come to that place, in your heart again
Where I have no closed ……doors
Heaven’s Calling!
Heaven’s Calling!
Heaven’s Voice is Calling…. To You!
“Come Back Again!
Come Back Again!
 
“There’s a price, for separation!
There’s a price, for consecration!
 
If you want me to move, if you want Me to flow,
If your want more of Me, then things have to go!
 
When the chaff, is separated from grain,
It’s done, on the threshing floor.
Done on the threshing floor.”
 
Come! Come back!
Come back to the clean place, where the strife,
Where the grind, where the fighting is released.
 
Come again…
…To the Threshing Floor.”

"THE GREATEST ENEMY TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH"
DEMEANING ANOTHER GENERATION OF LEADERS
by MaryLindow 
It is highly recommended that you listen to the 
audio version/podcast of this message and join in with 
the prayers lifted up on behalf of the Body of Christ
There is a dangerous trend blooming much like a dandelion in the body of Christ that needs to literally be nipped in the root, and in no way approached with a cowering spirit! Somehow it's now a trending youthful "call from God" to be a cutting edge voice that is sent to “correct” the current Fathers and Mothers in the body of Christ. Hmmmm.....
I DON'T CARE HOW POPULAR OR TRENDY ANY MOVEMENT IS or any individual who is a gifted speaker is. If they have been given the privilege to address the body of Christ on any stage, in any pulpit, in any gathering, they are to be judged and held accountable by those in leadership for their actions and their choices when they speak to others.
I AM ADDRESSING SPECIFIC SITUATIONS where a young-(ish) man or woman is allowed to speak in a meeting and begins to demand that the crowd responds according totheir commands.
There should NEVER be even the hint of demeaning another generation of leaders publicly, or a shaming and finger-pointing message aimed at somehow "breaking the people" and getting them to be stirred up to do something. Whatever that"something" might be, if people are shamed into action, then it is truly not God's will or God's plan.
 
WHO GET’S TO ADDRESS PEOPLE FROM THE PODIUM? There's a lot to be said about not quickly allowing a novice or newcomer to your team to have absolute access to speak into the hearts of those who gather to hear of the specific (and most hopefully) -GOD ORDAINED vision that you, as a leader, have been commissioned and assigned to serve and honor! In 1 Kings 12 - Rehoboam rejected the advice of the "older men" who had stood with Solomon, listening instead to the "young men who grew up with him". It divided the Kingdom. HEAR that.
Pride can cause a novice who is actually termed "a new planting" meaning, “still not having put down roots”, to defend themselves and their more "potent" message. Pride can cause them to look down on others. If you allow it, pride will rob them ofthe most treasured mentoring relationships in their lives.
 
WHEN ANOTHERGENERATION MOCKS THE WORDS OF GOD Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some childish boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here you old bald man!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled the forty-two the boys.
2 Kings 2:23
 
THE WORD FOR"CHILDREN" IN THIS VERSE IS TRANSLATED AS PERSONS OF THIRTY ORFORTY YEARS OF AGE and, though these are called "little", they were so well grown as to be able to go out of the city by themselves without anyone to guide them, or to take care of them and they were at an age capable not only of taking notice of Elijah's baldness, but knew he was a prophet. They were able to know what good and evil was and, from a malicious spirit inside of them, they mocked at him. Some Jewish writers say they were called "Naarim", which means"children” because they had shaken off the bond that was keeping people close, the commandments, and "little", because they were of little faith:
 
THEY MOCKED HIM, AND SAID TO HIM, “GO UP, YOU BALD HEAD! GO UP, YOU OLD BALDY!”  Meaning, not up the hill to Bethel, where his coming was not really welcomed since most of the people were idol worshippers, and maybe these children were sent out to intimidate him with their jeers to keep him from entering the city! They had heard about Elijah going up to heaven so they jeeringly told him to go up to heaven after him, and then they would have gotten rid of them both! “Who needs that old man telling us what to do?!”  
At the same time that they were mocking him for his baldness, and making a funny story of the wondrous works of God, the taking up into heaven of Elijah, which by behaving so disrespectfully to a “White hairedhead”, a prophet of the Lord, was terribly wicked, and therefore opened thedoor to an external attack from a destructive force. Two full-grown she-bears, who consumed them.
Folks, there are consequences for mockery and deception!
 
BEFORE AMAN OR WOMAN CAN LOOK DOWN ON ANOTHER, they must first assume he or she is better than the person they are speaking against. A proud man or woman is suspicious of everyone else. A humble man or woman is more suspicious of their own heart than anyone else. The proud heart will detect defects in others before him. But a humble soul sees the evil in his/her own heart before they see evil in others.
 
CONCEITAND PRIDE ARE THE GREATEST ENEMIES TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH! Newly acquired knowledge often leads to pride rather than wisdom. This is often true with the novice. There is no surer way to fall into sin than to allow pride to lead us into putting confidence in ourselves rather than God. This type of pride always leads to destruction, because it robs us of God’s power to stand against temptation.
 
WHAT WEACCOMPLISH AS MEMBERS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS DONE BY THE POWER OF GOD. The novice begins thinking that what he/she accomplishes is his/her own doing. The people in Corinth had been developed in every way as well, with the knowledge of God, but pride in what they knew was about to lead to their destruction!
 
KNOWLEDGECAN BE MISTAKEN FOR MATURITY, but true knowledge is designed to bring us TO maturity. When we parade our freedom before others in an effort to reveal how much we know, we reveal our immaturity and are treading on dangerous ground! Knowledge put on PUBLIC display leads to revelry and scattering.
 
TRUE KNOWLEDGE BRINGS THE RESTFUL DISCIPLINE OF SELF-CONTROL.  Paul’s knowledge ofGod led him to lead a disciplined life for the benefit of himself and others. HUMBLING OURSELVES IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE ROOF OFF TOWARD GOD, AND THE WALLS DOWN TOWARD OUR FELLOW MAN. 
Once offences have been committed, whether intentional or unintentional, they must be dealt with! “I was wrong. I am sorry. Will you forgive me?” are healing words that only a humble soul would use. Whenever you find a man or woman willing to humble themselves before God and man, you have found a person who will be exalted, because “humility comes before honor.”
 
REMEMBER THAT SOME MEN’S SINS ARE OBVIOUS, AND ARE EQUALLY OBVIOUSLY BRINGING THEM TO SERIOUS JUDGMENT. 
"The sins of other men might not be apparent, but are dogging them, nevertheless, under the surface. Similarly some virtues are plain to see,while others, though not at all conspicuous, will eventually make themselves felt."
1Timothy 5:24-25
 "Don’t reprimand or publicly talk downto a senior leader in your church, honoring him as a father by first showing respect and humility. Treat the young men kindly as brothers, and the olderwomen as nurturing mothers. Treat the younger women as sisters, and nothingmore."
1 Timothy 5:1-2
