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...
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.”

The words, “The Harsh Winds of Life”
have been playing themselves over and over in my mind.
As I have pondered them and have allowed the Voice of the Holy Spirit to instruct me as to why I have been impressed with this statement, I sense the Lord addressing many deeper issues that are well anchored and maintained within our souls as believers.
These blustery currents in the natural can be devastating to property, trees, and all living-breathing creatures. We have all seen what the devastation of hurricanes and tornadoes can do in a very short amount of time.
Often when listening to the traumatic stories of those who have lived through a nightmarish storm, the realities of what they hold near and dear have been laid bear and brought to the surface. Many weep over the loss of family photographs or tender things like Grandma’s old chipped china and are unconcerned about larger material items, but are deeply thankful for the safety of family members after a traumatic event. Others, are shaking fists at the sky and are enraged that they have been infringed upon during a difficult time, and want somebody else to pay for it!
THE HARSH WINDS OF LIFE BLOW UPON THE GODLY AND THE UNGODLY. NO ONE IS EXEMPT.
There are some of life's storms that threaten to blow away everything we've depended on as well.
Friendships are tested, relationships are strained, and the Lord uses these harsh winds blowing against our lives to remove the crusty chaff that can form and harden around the seed of our lives.
Those who are independent in nature find a bitterness creeping into their attitudes and heart. They feel infringed upon when things are not easily controlled or maneuvered in their favor. And so, the Holy Spirit allows the winds to blow until a conviction penetrates the self centered soul, and exposes the fleshy comfort zone of, ‘My Way, My World, My Rights”!
No man has power over the wind to contain it;
So no one has power over the day of his death.
And no one is discharged in time of war,
So wickedness will not release those who practice it.
HOW LONG WILL THE HARSH WINDS BLOW?
As long as we practice wicked behavior in the eyes of the Lord, and no matter how hard we try, we cannot stop it! He is winnowing us, allowing us to be caught up into the refining wind of the Holy Spirit's conviction so that the chaff and waste places in our souls are removed.
And trust me my friends, anything that you may be hiding or pretending wasn’t “that bad”, that harmed someone else, well God will allow it to come to the light to be either judged or to be cleansed and yes, there may be consequences that you don’t like.
WE CAN’T HARM OTHER PEOPLE, OR ABUSE THEM, SEXUALLY PREY UPON THEM, SPIRITUALLY ABUSE AND DOMINATE OR SLANDER, and then pretend that it wasn’t “that big of a deal”! It’s a huge deal to God and he will continue to pursue us in order to cleanse us if we will allow him access.
(Yes you can say "ouch" right about now!)
CHAFF MUST BE REMOVED. BUT WHY?
Chaff is a waste material plowed into the soil or burned.
Chaff, as a waste product from grain processing, shows us a symbolic use of the idea that refers to something seen as worthless.
Now, this is where we read, "to separate the wheat from the chaff" from
Matthew 3. It means to separate things of value from things of no value.
Another example is in Psalm 1 which says: "Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away".
WE CHRISTIANS OFTEN PRESUME THAT BECAUSE WE ARE REDEEMED THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL SACRIFICE OF CHRIST FOR OUR LIVES, THAT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN EASIER AND MORE PRIVILEGED LIFE.
This is simply not so!
We are given a shield and a holy stamina to withstand the wiles of this world, but no free passes to a life of ease.
THE LORD LOVES ALL OF MANKIND.
He longs for ALL of mankind, (that includes you and I) to come to a place of trust in His way, not “our way”. Fully stripped of self-will, self-gratification, self- justification, and self-focus.
Matthew 5:45 says~
“He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good,
And sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
I KNOW! I KNOW! THIS STINGS!
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. James 3:14
About now, I can hear a few righteous folks saying, "I would never boast about envy! "
Well! Selfish ambition is well hidden in our personal behaviors.
We offer gifts or opportunities for others to be blessed or helped as long as we are feeling in control and benevolent at the time of the offer or good intention.
But when the winds of life shift and the Lord allows the chaff of "waste materials" in our soul to be Tornadoed —bitterness and exclusive rights abound! Huffiness, abrupt harshness and passive aggression (which means getting even) will manifest and expose the soul's clinging nature, which does not want the hand of God striping away any safety veneer that we use to protect our approach to life.
A CHANGE IN THE SPIRITUAL CLIMATE HAS OCCURRED!
John 6:18 says, “A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.”
Jesus allowed the wind to be a teaching point for his disciples. They had walked with Him, talked with Him and served alongside Him. But trusting Him when the Storms and Harsh winds blew revealed a weakness that we all must look at, and often.
We trust the Lord when things are going our way, but when the Harshness of a storm blows us off the course that we set, many times we run to our own devices or “Plan B”.
SO MANY AT THIS TIME IN THIS DIFFICULT AGE ARE SCREAMING,
“Lord! Don’t you care about me? The winds are blowing, and I am fearful for my life! If you Love me, why are you allowing this horrid event to occur?”
Even Peter in his zeal to get out of the boat and see if it was indeed Jesus calling to him to come, once he was out of the safety of his own control and the winds blew against him, he focused on the wind, and not upon Jesus, who was there the whole time. Peter cries out, "LORD I am perishing! SAVE ME!”
CONTROL IS A DEEP, DEEP NEED.
Perhaps THE deepest need people have, is for control.
When we feel out of control, we experience a powerful and uncomfortable tension between the need for control and the evidence of “inadequate control”.
Without the Presence of God in our lives, we will attempt to control everything, every event, and every person around us in order to attain the sense of order and “identity power” that we crave.
DRAWING NEAR TO GOD
It was James, the brother of Jesus, who wrote to the believers in Jerusalem, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, you double- minded people!" (James 4:8).
If we draw near to God, he will respond and draw near to us.
Drawing near to God is spending time with Him, worshiping Him, praying and talking to Him, inviting Him into every aspect of our lives.
EVERY. PART. OF. OUR. LIFE.
BRING YOUR HEART UNDER HIS LORDSHIP
James gives us the blueprint for drawing near or “right up close” to the Lord.
If you've committed sin, confess it, get rid of it.
Next, ask the Lord to examine your heart, your motives, and the things that make you do what you do.
Bring your heart under His Lordship as well.
May our actions be manifestations of a clean heart and conscience.
Allow HIM to remove the Chaff, the wasted time controlling things, and TRUST Him to align your life.
Notice that when he writes about this he says,
"Purify your hearts, double-minded people."
WHAT DOES HE MEAN BY "DOUBLE-MINDED"?
Well, a person who is double-minded is drawn in two completely different directions. And so he or she will get nowhere fast because loyalty is divided.
They will vacillate between faith and unbelief.
And, a double-minded person is unstable in all his/her ways and his/her spiritual walk is inconsistent because he/she tries to serve God and his/her own interests, and gamble their life against the Harsh Winds.
We've all learned that this kind of living never works.
YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS.
Friends again I say this under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the master that you serve whether it be hiding something that is a secret sin or offense to The Lord, or things that you are aware of that have dishonored others, they will be brought into the light one way or the other.
If you think you can hide it, if you think you can gloss it over, God will eventually bring it into the light and have you exposed for deception.
Or, you choose to get the help you need and you can humble yourself! Yes, there may be consequences you don’t like, because of your actions and choices. But repentance and accountability will save your soul. It may not save your marriage, it may not save your ministry, and it may not save your job or your relationships. But it will save your soul, because humility enters, and God can re-create what has been destroyed and damaged.
GOD DOESN'T PLAY GAMES!
No one is going to get very far with God by playing spiritual games.
It will soon be discovered that the only people playing the game with you will be you, yourself, and again, YOU. It's just like people thinking that they can "ride the fence" into the kingdom.
There is no riding the fence; there is no lukewarm support group.
You’re either in or out.
If we really want to know Him, we are going to have to get serious about our relationship with Him.
WE DON’T WANT DIFFICULT!
I will tell you right now, that even as I write and speak these words, I can feel the resistance to pruning and more change in my gut!
Are you in a pruning, shocking, "getting trimmed back" difficult season right now?
Most everyone is!
Feeling like your wings have been clipped?
Are you seeing a pattern of lethargy and a dullness of joy maybe in your daily life?
Don’t waste those struggles friends! Know that God is very... VERY... intentional. And, He has a good plan for all of it.
Every challenge is an opportunity to practice walking one day at a time, with really clear thinking and gratitude, and He is right there, inside you, to help you.
LIKE I SAID BEFORE! WE DON’T WANT DIFFICULT!
But my oh my, I do want to be like Him!
So I’m in surrender-mode now, friends.
I’m saying, “Cut away, Lord. Go deep.”
WHY? Because I want ALL that He has for me.
I want the fruit.
I want all that abundance, and I know it’s waiting for me when this weird and awkward season changes.
THERE IS ANOTHER PHENOMENON I FIND THAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCESS, WHEN THE HARSH WINDS OF LIFE ARE BEARING DOWN.
And, one that I find that is unhealthy to ignore.
The enemy of our soul is observing and is feverishly “taking notes” about this difficult process, and I believe he finds it quite enjoyable; he laughs and ridicules and flings missiles of insults that shout that, "only a loser needs this kind of difficult adjustment ”.
This of course, is a lie but, one which we can tend to believed on a bad day! Listening to the wrong voice can tempt us to believe the blowing away of chaff in our lives is punishment, and comes from God being mad at us.
It can cause us to pull back from deeper fellowship or social engagements (social distancing tools too, like Face Time, ZOOM, integral) these paralyze honesty, transparency and humility.
It can lead to self-hatred, self-protection, denial about how we hurt others with half-truths, and so on!
I AM TRULY BECOMING MORE AWARE IN MY SPIRIT THAT GOD CAN ONLY USE ME—OR “BEST USE ME”, THROUGH THE PARTNERSHIP OF HIS POWER AND MY WEAKNESS.
A wise and well-tested man by the name of Alan Hood must have had a few pruning clippers dig into his life at time or two and learned this lesson. He stated,
“To Be Pruned Is To Lose The Resources, Whether Monies or Physical Strengths Upon Which Everyone Around You Measures You As Successful.”
LET’S READ THAT AGAIN…
…S L O W L Y !
“To Be Pruned Is To Lose The Resources, Whether Monies or Physical Strengths Upon Which Everyone Around You Measures You As Successful.”
TRYING TO USE OLD THINGS WHEN GOD IS TRYING TO GIVE US NEW THINGS IS REALLY SUCH FOOLISHNESS!
Psalm 85 talks about Restoration, Re-tooling and Revival.
Verse 8 says,
“I will listen to what God the Lord says;
He promises peace to his people, His saints
—but let them not return to folly.”
I’M TRUSTING THE LORD’S GOOD AND GRACIOUS HAND IN THE PROCESS THAT THE WORLD IS EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW.
I know God does not intend to leave even a healthy fruit-bearing branch how it is, but He is always after a more abundant harvest for His people.
I don’t get it, I don’t like or want difficult!
But I also don’t want a puny little sick looking basket of bitter, green, unusable fruit out of life!
He will “give the increase” when I reach the end of this seeming devastation of stymied ideas and “put on hold” plans, and let me tell you something crazy, I feel it coming! The increase!
I’m learning to WALK in harmony, in tune with the truth that, “He is dwelling like healthy sap, in me, and will keep sin and despair from having dominion over my life”. (Romans 6:14) YOUR LIFE TOO!
A MOMENT IN HIS ANGER - A LIFETIME IN HIS FAVOR.
God disciplines for a moment when He wishes to get our attention and our lives may indeed become painful for a period, but then comes His favor.
God doesn't delight in either our depression or our damage.
And, when He begins to deal with the chaff in our lives, it is for our advantage, that we may be conformed to His likeness and reflect His holiness.
When we sense God’s disapproval, when it appears He has withdrawn from us, it is only so that we see our utter need of Him.
WHEN LIFE SEEMS TO BE SO SOUR, WHEN EVERYTHING CRUMBLES, then we must remember what we “say we believe”, that God’s favor is with us, because of Christ’s worthiness given to us, because we are adopted and are His - which means, that His favor always wins out over His disapproval.
THIS PICTURE IS PAINTED WELL BY THE WORDS "WEEPING REMAINS FOR A NIGHT."
Weeping and sorrow are pictured as a traveler who comes to stay for a night. The pain and sorrow we feel may seem as though it has moved in with us like an unwelcome guest, who decides to stay for a very long time.
REJOICING THOUGH, COMES IN THE MORNING.
Your “mourning”, will dissipate in the morning”.
Your winter, will melt into summer.
God will replace your sighing, with singing.
Grief, will give way to gladness.
What was once bitter, will be made sweet.
And, what was once a desolate wilderness, will be transformed into a paradise.
LIKE THE FIRST RAYS OF THE SUNRISE WHICH DISPEL THE HARSH WINDS AND GLOOM OF NIGHT, GOD GIVES US JOY WHEN THE DARKNESS OF OUR PROBLEMS SEEM AS THOUGH THEY’LL NEVER LEAVE.
YOUR CROSS IS HIS GLORY
What is so crucial to understand is that as a Christian, your life will be filled with times of weakness and strength, with want and wealth, with disgrace and honor, with crosses and comforts, miseries and mercies, joys and sorrows, delight and mourning.
As this cycle of separating “Chaff” from our lives reoccurs many times in our lives, and it moves us from the cross to glory.
For your own health and so that you find all your satisfaction in Christ alone, God will send you times of great growth and other times of emptiness.
When the harsh winds blow, know that God desires that you find your hope and comfort by His own fire.
When the balmy breezes come, give Him praise and thanksgiving for the warmth He provides.
Psalm 57:1 says,
"Have mercy on me, O God,
Have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.”

Prophetic Insights From the Holy Spirit
through Mary Lindow
Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'?
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields!
They are ripe for harvest. - John 4:35
PLANT YOUR FEET AND DETERMINE NOT TO LOOK BACKWARD.
The enemy will assault you to press you backwards.
Have I not said, "without a prophetic vision the people perish and go backwards?”
I am ready to revisit areas that have advanced my purposes but retreated at the day of battle.
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHAKING OF GOVERNMENTS.
There must be a confrontation of governments. My government on earth is arising and causing entire regions to shake. I am restoring and rising up leaders.
IN THE PAST SEASON, MY GIFT WITHIN LEADERS COULD NOT FIND ITS PLACE IN MY GOVERNMENT. However, now I am causing governments and gifts to divinely “find one another" and to connect.
This is creating great shakings from region to region throughout this land.
This alignment is creating a shift in civil government.
TODAY IS A DAY OF BREAKING OFF THAT WHICH CAUSED MY LEADERS TO RETREAT FROM THE VISITATIONS OF THE PAST.
Many advanced and then quit and retreated!
NOW IS A TIME TO ADVANCE!
I am restoring many of you to lead this advance.
There will be great connections occurring in My Body in this advance.
This will be the beginning of confronting sorceries, astrology, and witchcraft, which have produced control. I am sending you forward and I am releasing supernatural wisdom. This wisdom will cast down the sorcerers, astrologers, and those practicing witchcraft throughout regions.
LOVE AND CONFIDENCE IS ARISING IN MY BODY.
The past three years have been a time of restoring a level of worship, humility, meekness and purity in your calling and boldness in the choices you make!
FROM WORSHIP YOU WILL NOW MOVE INTO A NEW SUPERNATURAL DIMENSION.
Do not fear this call to the supernatural!
The Baal systems of this nation will begin to strengthen to keep my new refreshing strategies from forming and advancing in your region.
Do not fear these systems, but keep confronting through prayer, the powers that have attached themselves to the structures of governments in your region.
I WILL MAKE YOU INTO A SUPERNATURAL PEOPLE
WHO CAN RISE UP AND OVERTHROW
THAT WHICH HAS CONTROLLED YOU IN THE PAST.
MY PEOPLE ARE BECOMING A NEW, SHARP THRESHING INSTRUMENT.
This threshing is producing shaking.
This shaking is releasing harvest.
The harvest will not rot in the fields of neglect or laziness.
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A POWERFUL CONSUMING FIRE.
When these occult structures are overthrown, consuming fire will sweep through this nation. And you will set my name upon the high places!
My all-consuming light will address the idols and temples of religious shame and control.
I HAVE GIVEN SO MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES “MY ANOINTED” MUCH, MUCH, TIME TO DEAL WITH THE HIDDEN SINS.
Sins in their marriages.
Sins of competition, jealousy over who is used by me, and harsh verbal words of shame used to control and break the will of another servant in my calling.
Some have called themselves my servants but have only served their own purposes in a place of self-comfort and self-promotion, letting others do the labor in prayer.
Jeremiah 7:24 says,
“But they did not listen or pay attention;
instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts.
THEY WENT BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD.”
DEAL WITH YOUR WEAK AND COWARDLY ATTEMPTS AT HOLINESS, THROUGH REPENTANCE AND HONESTY OF HEART BEFORE ME AND OTHERS WHOM YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING IN FELLOWSHIP WITH.
THE DAYS OF PERSONAL AMBITION AND HIERARCHY ARE NUMBERED.
MY FIRE MUST BE IN YOUR HEART!
The fear of the Divine Supernatural is to be removed from you.
Many have fallen into fear over the supernatural spirits that have surrounded them. Therefore, they have retreated in their prayer life and fallen into passivity.
1 Samuel 12:24 says,
“But be sure to honor the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY! PLANT YOUR FEET.
The window of opportunity for change is short and sweet.
THIS WILL BE A TIME THAT NIGHT WATCHES ARE RE-FORMED IN YOUR REGION, AND I WILL REVISIT YOU IN THE NIGHT WATCH.
I will visit my bride as I described in the Song of Solomon and knock upon her door. This is not a time for hesitation.
Night watches will spring forth across the nations.
Once again these watches will open the door to me, and I will come again.
Therefore, I am calling watchmen to rise up and cry out day and night
for my bride to be positioned near the door of opportunity in these lands.
Be positioned, ready to open the door of opportunity in your nation.
MY BRIDE MUST NOT HESITATE TO OPEN THE DOOR
SINCE HARVEST IS WAITING TO COME THROUGH THE DOOR
INTO THE STOREHOUSE OF MY KINGDOM!
MY WILL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED ON EARTH.
I AM ADVANCING.
ADVANCE WITH ME.
I WILL LEAD YOU INTO WARFARE.
MANY HAVE GROWN FEARFUL OF CONFRONTING THE ENEMY.
I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY.
I confronted both legalism and liberalism.
I say rise up in worship that you might confront.
Without confrontation, your enemy, the legalist, will gain much strength against you and narrow the boundaries of your freedom.
If you will align yourselves properly and allow your gift to work within my government, I will guide you like a troop into warfare and make you victorious.
WORSHIP IS ARISING. FROM WORSHIP, YOU WILL WAR!
For a sound of war is coming into the heart of my people.
John 4:23 says,
A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality), for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers
DO NOT GO BACKWARDS.
Take off the old garments that would hinder you.
My advance is now in the earth.
YOU HAVE BEEN BLINDED FROM THE SUPPLY OF THE FUTURE!
A NEW SEER ANOINTING IS ABOUT TO ARISE IN MY PEOPLE.
What you couldn't see in the past, you will now see.
You've tried to connect and align with some, but now I will release a new anointing for connecting.
You will see strategies of supply that have been hidden from you by occult powers.
The seer anointing is coming back into your region.
My people's eyes are about to see their supply.
Advance is now in the earth.
Open your eyes and advance with me!
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT PROVIDER.
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT HEALER.
YOU WILL SEE ME BRING FULFILLMENTS
AND ANSWERS TO MY MANY PROMISES!
You will now begin to release a manifestation of My joy of release from captivity from region to region throughout the land and in all nations crying out for more of Me!
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,
For the old order of things has passed away." - Revelation 21:4
Let’s pray about this word from the Lord and share it with others!

THIS MESSAGE IN PODCAST FORM IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT ADDRESSES WHAT IS WEIGHING HEAVILY ON MOST OF OUR HEARTS, AND IS MOST LIKELY ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE ARE ALL PROBABLY QUESTIONING AND PONDERING AT THIS TIME.
By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
THIS MESSAGE IN PODCAST FORM IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT ADDRESSES WHAT IS WEIGHING HEAVILY ON MOST OF OUR HEARTS, AND IS MOST LIKELY ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE ARE ALL
PROBABLY QUESTIONING AND PONDERING AT THIS TIME.
There is going to be a time of ministering prophetic words at the end of this message, but the message itself is a prophetic “now timing” word that is burning in my heart.
I will share that with you that it is prophetic and has warnings from the Lord as well as encouraging words and insights regarding what we need to be preparing for at this time.
WHAT THE LORD IMPRESSED ME WITH THROUGH THIS PROPHETIC INSIGHT/TEACHING IS THIS,
Whenever there is a fresh wave or move of God’s Plan in the earth in regard to the redeeming of souls, there is also a counter movement at work among the "religious" and also the prideful “elite” intellectuals of the day.
These situations are brought on through the influence of evil spirits who have been assigned to try and destroy the future generations of passionate and unspoiled servants of grace that God would plan to use in the earth. The “Sons and Daughters" of the King.
AS WE BEGIN TO SEE THE DAWNING OF THE PROMISED WAVE OF GOD’S GREATEST HARVEST EVENT EVER KNOWN TO MAN SINCE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST JESUS, THE LORD IS GOING TO ALLOW THE "HEROD TYPE OF ATTITUDES" TO BE JUSTLY ADDRESSED.
There are those who were once deeply a part of what God was doing and have “lost" that so called advantage to either the aging process, transition in ministry, or through focusing strictly on their own ministry advancement and the love for “public applause” and popularity.
HONESTLY! YOU WOULD THINK THAT AS WE ARE SEEING BIOLOGICAL GLOBAL WAR AND INFILTRATION TAKING PLACE,that the Body of Christ would stop all programs and plans, and be sober!
Sober, Repenting for Passivity and Indifference to God’s warning voice, and then be literally having every meeting or gathering focused on strong prayer, strong worship, lifted up to the God of all creation, which is a massive weapon of warfare against the evil shroud attempting to suffocate the planet.
HOW CAN WE EXPLAIN THIS WAVE OF THE LOSS OF SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT AND POWER?
HOW DOES THE DEVIL STEAL THE VERY HEART OUT OF THE CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE?
One thing is certain.
It doesn't happen suddenly or overnight.
PEOPLE LOSE THEIR LOVE FOR THE TRUTH BY DEGREES. Little by little, they lower their standards and compromise their faith, until nothing remains except a dead, empty, angry and bitter form.
SOME, LIKE LOT'S WIFE, will be so married to the world, so enmeshed in its delicious intellectual and sociological "one-upmanship" that they cannot let go in time.
They will have to suffer with terrible and shocking consequences over the things that they loved more than they loved God.
OTHERS LIKE LOT, will awaken just in time to choose very quickly and decisively. Without taking a backward glance, they will move out in complete obedience to the will of God.
My friends. This is the choice everyone faces.
LOT'S WIFE SUFFERED TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCES WHEN SHE PLAYED WITH THE WORD OF A HOLY GOD.
She was dragging her feet and resented having to leave the life she had grown to adore in every way.
The offense of looking back upon the luxury, sensual and "modernized" lifestyle that she had grown to love, exposed her divided will.
It also revealed the fact that her heart was still bound up with the affairs of a corrupt and condemned social order.
TWO VOICES WERE COMPETING FOR HER FAITHFULNESS AND STEADFASTNESS IN THE FACE OF TEMPTATION.
The Voice of heaven – the Voice of God, calling her to liberty, purity, and salvation.
And the other voice?
The voice of the darkness – the voice of popularity and pleasure, the voice of Sodom.
Slowly the voice from beneath gained a foothold in a badly bent conscience…
… and Lot's wife stands as a tragic example of a divided heart.
JESUS SAID, "REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE," AND HE SAID IT TO THOSE WHO WOULD LIVE THROUGH THE FINAL TRAUMATIC MOMENTS OF EARTH'S HISTORY.
He is saying it to the believer right now–"Remember Lot's wife."
We need to hear it again and again.
The message that says,
"Obedience is better than anything else in revealing our love."
Jesus said so. "If you love me, keep my commandments."
DISOBEDIENCE IS WORSE THAN ANYTHING
BECAUSE IT IS AN ACT OF DISLOYALTY IN ITS VERY NATURE.
THERE IS A STATEMENT I ONCE HEARD THAT SAID,
“PEOPLE BECOME LIKE THE GOD THEY SERVE.”
Now think about that statement.
And then think about the current world system and those attempting to encroach upon every human being until they are worn down.
Science without the Supreme Being God Almighty, the Creator, worships the counterfeit god. Lucifer.
God: He is a Super Dynamic Creative.
He Created Colors, Light, Air, Weather Systems of perfection, Land, Minerals, Water (salt and not salty), plants of all sorts/ medicinal, edible, sheltering, and some simply for beauty.
God Delighted in the creation and nurturing of perfectly formed humans, whom He loves.
Lucifer: The counter fitter, is super destructive, destroys colors, loves grey and darkness, thrives on destroying land, Minerals, waters, abusing plants and delights in torturing and confusing humans for revenge against God Almighty. He loves false power and graft.
Do you see those or know those who laugh at or who don’t believe in a living active God? Well, they are trapped in a bitter heart narrative by the limited god of only this world.
They have become like him.
Bitter, abusive, angry that they can’t dictate to God and change his plans, and they are filled with doubts and rage.
Because that’s what Lucifer does to humans.
He lies to them and traps their minds, and weakens them to keep them from encountering and embracing the Father of their very own, forever.
“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”
-2 Corinthians 11:14
“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God the Father.”
-2 Corinthians 4:4
SOME OF THE EVIL SPIRITS LUCIFER USES,
COME AND TAUNT THOSE WITH OLD RELIGIOUS RESIDUAL MINDSETS.
Those who feel that there is a "deserved" spiritual hierarchy, in the ranks of the King.
Many have assumed that because they have labored and have paved the pathway with their life's blood for the next wave of the King, that they “deserve a place of special recognition” and a form of "holding onto the leash" of those they have coming up “underneath” them.
If this is not humbly acknowledged and repented of, this can cause what the scripture calls, “exasperating your children" to occur.
Colossians. 3:21 says,
“Fathers, do not exasperate your children,
That they may not lose heart.”
This creates an atmosphere of shame and pushes many into a place of frustration in not wanting to dishonor their mentors, but feel that they will be watched in their every move and smugly, with an “accusing raising of the eyebrows" be "discussed" in demeaning terms, as they too try to reach their destinies and calling in the Way of the Lord.
THE LORD HAS RECENTLY BEEN IMPRESSING ME ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO NOT ALLOW OTHERS TO BE PROMOTED OR TO RISE ABOVE THEM IN ANY AREA THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE EITHER AT ONE TIME HELD INFLUENCE IN OR WHO ARE AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME, THE LEAD OR MAIN VOICE OR AN ORGANIZATION, A MINISTRY, OR INSTITUTION.
This can occur in a business situation, or in ministry settings where only after you have jumped through certain hoops of performance or other "tests” you will possibly then be esteemed of “useful” value and perhaps be allowed a place of input or respect among the “hierarchy of the day”.
THE LORD IS LOVINGLY ALLOWING PAINFUL TRAVAIL TO OCCUR, in order for the current generation of Fathers and Mothers in the faith to see that through releasing and affirming the sons and daughters in their care, or… who are now, (due to the season) moving past them in influence or in special anointing, that they too WILL once again, run hard and multiply themselves through Imparting and sending out the new wave of the King’s regiments!
ARE WE OR HINDERING OR HARVESTING?
The hidden prophetic and travailing element of individuals who are being shaped into the fabric of God's own weaving are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of pace.
What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with rest. Release of God’s grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your course of instructions for this season. But you are not done running the race by a long stretch!
MANY OF YOU ARE IN YOUR LATE 40'S TO YOUR MID 60'S.
You have not had the pleasure of faithful mentoring.
So. With some of you, the Lord has instead, made your life one of mentoring and preparing others.
Look now at the pathway the Lord has allowed you to pave, and one that others might walk upon when they too experience times of darkness and difficulty.
Your lives have a Divine Radiance that has prepared a “footing" for them in Christ, so that they may not stumble and fail.
Lay down the insecure need to control anything that you are afraid might not go the way that YOU think God should be moving.
It’s really not up to us to maneuver or manipulate how God will choose to break out in power in conviction and in exposing the darkness in men’s hearts.
Let’s begin with letting Him create clean hearts in us first.
THE FATHER IN HEAVEN INTENTIONALLY STRIPPED HIMSELF OF HIS GREATEST GLORY. HIS SON, in order that the wave of redemption needed in the earth might be brought forth through the Son.
In doing so, the Father was glorified, exalted, and further honored by allowing this Son to fulfill His part of the Triune plan.
Why is this not modeled by more of those who are calling themselves, Leaders, “Bishops” - Apostles, or even now the newly developed term, “Super Apostles”?
THIS IS A SPIRIT ON THE LOOSE FROM HELL!
It is nothing more than a "mimic" of the spirit of pride that Lucifer operated in, and it operates in many others now.
It has been working hard to invade the minds of many who at one time were in the forefront of specific moves of God or who were key leaders in areas of ministry building in the past.
THIS SPIRIT OPERATES MUCH LIKE HOW HEROD THE GREAT DID DURING THE TIME WHEN THE SAVIOR WAS ABOUT TO BE BORN IN THE EARTH. Herod was so terribly afraid that someone would "snuff him out" or would "out do" him that he lived in paranoia, and he constantly manipulated and curried favor in order to gain influence or access to whatever he needed to keep his stronghold of power intact.
THIS IS OCCURRING ON NATURAL WORLD GOVERNMENTAL STAGES AND PARALLELED IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD AS WELL.
Let's read in the Word about this first. In Matthew 2:1-6 is says,
“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked,
"Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."
When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.
When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.
"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:
“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel. “
HEROD WAS A MAN WHO EXPECTED OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE WAS THE ONE WHO HELD ALL COMMAND.
There was no room at the table for those who would not sway his way!
He used smooth talk with other "Kings" and influential leaders to obtain information and tasty morsels of gossip to plan his next move in order to keep his position intact.
As the Chief Priest and keepers of the law were called together, (they walked on eggshells around Herod,) the WORD of God spoke about this humble little town where a new ruler was to be “raised up" (NOTE THIS STATEMENT) —> and would care for the people, causing a wave of Spiritual “Sonic Booms” that would forever shake and change the world!
HEROD DIDN'T CARE FOR PEOPLE!
They were supposed to care for him and fear him! And grovel!
He had worked hard and had jousted and manipulated constantly to gain all of this power and honor!
Matthew Ch. 2: 7-8 says,
"Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.
He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
NOTICE THAT HEROD GATHERED THE 3 KINGS INTO HIS CHAMBERS “SECRETLY”…
...To hide his plan from the Priests and lawmakers and with a "slimy" oozing, well-cultivated and deceptive tongue, tried to appear ever so interested in the new "child" that was in his way. He acted out in false humility, and used it to try to obtain information as to where his "upstart enemy" might be located.
He wanted to "at least" honor him and worship him too!
In all reality, Herod wanted to go and scope out where this new king might live, and see what he had to compete with…
… and then, KILL HIM.
But! God had planned that the next wave of his power on the earth must come through a childlike and poor son.
One who would not get stuck in traditional posturing or in the trends of the era.
One who would not manipulate with intellect, cunningness, or through lofty ambition.
GOD HAD GIVEN OF HIS SEED…
…HIS living prepared pathway.
He gave it ALL into the next "generation of His Presence" and the move of His glory in the earth.
Into a SON…
…Who had lived in the very Presence of God and was one with Him.
Now! About Those, ”THREE WISE MEN."
"After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was." -Matthew 2:9
These three Kings had "heard the true intentions" of King Herod's "heart".
They were discerning men, and realized that after having been "hauled off" by Herod to a very secretive meeting to inquire about this new "ministry" and possible challenger of Herod's rule, something was a little off beat!
Herod had left a very "Saccharine" aftertaste in the mouths of the Wise men and, wisely, they still stayed on the course that God had led them on and met the TRUE KING OF GLORY.
He was lowly,
He was innocent and pure,
He radiated the pure light and presence of God Himself.
THESE MEN DIDN’T NEED POMP OR STRONG-ARMED, PRIDEFUL LEADERSHIP to cause them to bow down and give honor to this tiny King!
No! The simple humility of the "Promise to come" was enough to cause them to bow their knees and worship the King of heaven.
Their reward was to have a visitation in their dreams to not return, nor to converse with Herod about the new wave of glory that would be coming through this child.
“And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.”
I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU A PROPHETIC WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT NOW.
SOMETHING THAT I FEEL THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS GIVEN TO ME AS A PROPHETIC WORD OR UTTERANCE.
“For I the Lord have prodded, whispered, shouted, and commanded many to assist you in paving the way.
If you are weary of waiting for releases and the fulfilled promise, take what you now have and in reckless abandonment cast it upon the water.
I will see to it that you will not be left with empty hands.
I bless what is little if it is given in humility and obedience, rather than much given in false humility and personal safety.
Come to the place of safety! Under My shadowed wing.
Anguish has been your companion too long as well as the gaping ache for friends that stick closer than a brother.
I have begun building relationships among you that stem from brokenness in each of you, and also where you have learned the value of discretion.
See Me fulfill and direct your path.
Watch the answers dawn upon your list of asked, and yet unanswered questions.
I see the cunning liars in the world, laying in wait to trap and break the hearts of humanity!
But I have called you to be bold and brave and filled with courage.
I call you to stand again and stand against the raging seas of evil and watch me open up a way that leads you into safety and my very purposes for the world needing healing and deliverance.
Stop all you can in the natural way of achievements and moving forward with your own way and plans.
Call for days and nights of prayer. Father, Mother, Youth, Children! Older and Younger!
Intercede for those mocking the very Jesus they once loved.
Intercede for the ignorant that are being chained to systems of great fear and bondage.
Weep and pray and trust!
Your bond to me will either hold you safe, or your resistance to me will feed fear and resentment.
See ME as the One who can move upon the hearts of those who quickly obey when I touch their inner-man with compassion and spiritual insights.
I have a few in the earth who live...
...To obey Me, Promptly."
I also sense in the Spirit that there are those in ministry who are listening, who have had “secret - almost affairs", in their office with other women, and some who have, and you have hidden it from your wife and have banished these people from your fellowship.
The Lord sees it and the Lord knows about it.
There are some who have been “absconding with money” and some that have been gambling with cash. They have a gambling addiction and the Father is saying that He is giving them a chance to come clean and to tell the truth now, because everything in your life that can be shaken, will be shaken.
There are also those who are mocking and making fun of the Spirit of God, saying that it has become “an old thing” and they are ashamed of the gifts of the Spirit. They no longer allow the flowing of the gifts of the Spirit unless it comes through one person.
The Father wants you to know that when you restrain the Spirit of God, when you restrain His voice, that he will scatter the sheep and send them where there is freedom.
The Lord is encouraging me to share that there are some at this point who are seeking money instead of the goodness of the people in their fellowship.
They are more concerned about money and power and keeping their own bank account stoked rather that taking care of the Orphans and Widows and those who are in distress around them.
The Lord wants you to know that this funding that you have in your pocket can get a hole in it just as quickly as it has come in, but, as you cast your bread, as you share, that you must humble yourself and release the spirit of fear in you that thinks that God will not financially provide in another way, or you are going to mess it up, you will bring tragedy on the call of God on your life.
I want to speak to those Mothers who are suffering right now and Fathers with children who seem to have gone AWOL from the Lord.
That they have become literally “verbal activists” for darkness.
As parents, you have been questioning,
“What did we do? What did we say?
Were we too stern? Were we too soft?
Were we too “spiritual” or were we not spiritual enough?
Were we blind?”
The Lord wants you to know that if you have repented of everything that you know to do, and have attempted to talk these things out with your children, that He does not hold you accountable for their sins or for their disobedience.
Your job is to stand and pray, and stand and pray, and stand and pray some more and watch God do the work.
You cannot project what you think that He is going to do.
Your job is to PRAY.
His job is to do what He sees best to keep them from giving in, to the total darkness that is trying to suck them in.
I KNOW THAT THIS WAS A STRONG TEACHING AND HAD WORDS THAT WERE UNCOMFORTABLE,
BUT WE ARE LIVING IN TREACHEROUS AND DIFFICULT TIMES.
However, we need to be integral with what the Lord shares with us whether people like us, or not.
Father we take these words and we ponder and chew on them.
We discern them and go over them with your word.
We pray about them. And, we will obey the Spirit promptly and make things right with those we need to, in order to not deflect these warnings and words and be trapped by the enemy. Satan is good at betrayal and slandering and will find a way to expose mankind and point a finger and mock the sons of God.
Lord! We need you more than we have ever needed you before!

I’M SHARING TODAY’S PODCAST WITH THE INDICATION FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WHAT I’M SHARING IS A PROPHETIC INSIGHT FOR THOSE LISTENING OR READING REGARDING WORLD HAPPENINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CRUCIAL PROJECT,
I found my life barraged and pressured by distractions of all kinds.
Now, this is not an unusual pattern.
DISTRACTIONS COME TO STEAL OUR PASSION, OUR PURPOSE,
GOD’S PROMISES, AND HIS PROVISION.
I have a scripture and a strategy that I use when distractions come to derail my focus now that really helps to keep me on track and focus on what’s in front of me. This can apply to everything from work, house cleaning, Counseling, writing and ministry, right down to sticking with the list for the grocery store, and not adding extra cheese and crackers and other goodies in the shopping basket!
WHEN NEHEMIAH WAS REBUILDING THE WALL,
distractions came in the form of men calling out to him, high up on his ladder, to come down to discuss “their” important matters. These men presented concerns and rumors they feared to be truth, and, they were persistent and insistent that he come down and address the matters with them immediately!
Nehemiah responds plainly,
"I cannot come down, I am doing a great work."
THERE ARE MANY DISTRACTIONS BEING HURLED AT THE BODY OF CHRIST CONSTANTLY.
So what do we do?
We look those distractions square in the face and we say,
"We cannot come down. We are doing a great work."
End. Of. Story.
WE HAVE NO TIME FOR DISTRACTIONS.
THERE'S TOO MUCH ON THE LINE.
There's restoration to be done, broken down walls and broken down people to be filled back up, truth to be told, healing to be performed, love and justice to manifest and so on.
AND WHILE WE ARE DOING THESE ASSIGNED BY THE LORD TASKS, (because if they’re not assigned by the Lord then we’re basically doing our own thing, not his important work), while we are doing the assigned things from the Lord, we pray.
And by that I mean, we dialog with God our Father, and praise, and tell Jesus about the gratitude that we have for His life that He poured out for us, and speak back to Him the words He taught us in the 4 New Testament Gospels. And we also allow the Holy Spirit of God to have access to our hearts, bringing a sweet exposure and conviction where we might need to have our hearts cleaned up and "grown up" further in the way God has mapped out for those He loves so very much.
When we do these things in reverence and determination as we work,
You will find that we do not have time for distractions.
WHEN GOD SPEAKS AND WHEN WE FELLOWSHIP WITH JESUS,
and when the Holy Spirit is busy working in the dry and hard places of our souls, as we do that in our work, every single day, we do not have time for other distractions! We. Cannot. Come. Down.
WE CANNOT TAKE TIME TO BE PULLED INTO CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE WICKED, "weasely", and filled with all kinds of narratives that have nothing to do with what God has and IS doing right now right in front of us in our daily lives.
THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE NOT TO BE INFORMED AND...
...that we are not to be advocates for godly truths. That is part of rebuilding walls that have come down in our society. But getting into non-ending dialogs and basically verbal fights with people who just want to prove a point is literally drawing us into distraction and frustration.
It’s a Reality and Intense Fight for Good Over Evil!
Listen ever so closely to these mighty battle strategies against distractions!
Now my beloved ones,
I have saved these most important truths for last Instructions.
Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-your union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!
Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms.
For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage.
Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all glorious and godly things and will rise victorious.
- Ephesians 6: 10-13
FRIENDS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST GOOD AND EVIL!
We are doing a great work!
We are obeying God!
And, let’s hope that we aren’t doing it with haughtiness or an attitude of being a little better than everyone else in the way that we serve God! No way!
Someone whom God has called to rebuild or to restore and to do every day jobs, understands that the distractions of ego or the distractions of frustration, often create breaks in relationships, breaks in friendships and it kills the opportunity to have peace with God fully.
Do not negotiate with distractions.
Simply move on and put your hands to the great work before you.
Humbly. Purposefully. Without an attitude of needing to prove you’re heroic.
WE WORK, WE SERVE, WE LOVE AND WE FIGHT,
with our eyes focused on the One who rides at the forefront of our battles.
He’s there day and night, radiating comfort, wisdom, and grants discernment for every challenging situation that you and I will face.
MY FINAL PRAYER FOR YOU AS I CLOSE OUT TODAY’S PODCAST,
is from Hebrews 13:21
“May God Equip You With All You Need For Doing His Will.
May He Produce In You, Through The Power Of Jesus Christ,
Every Good Thing That Is Pleasing To Him.
All Glory To Him Forever And Ever!
STAY STEADY ON WARRIORS.
WE CANNOT COME DOWN TO NEGOTIATE WITH DISTRACTIONS.
WE HAVE GOD’S WORK TO DO.

A Prophetic Insight From the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
But I do nothing without consulting the Father. I judge as I am told.
And my judgment is absolutely just,
Because it is according to the will of God who sent me;
It is not merely My own.
~John 5:30 (NLT)
So! Do you now see how I your Savior receive My power, My Grace and heavenly insights? I do nothing...absolutely NOTHING without the input of My Father’s voice. He and I are one in thought, action and judgment.
I am challenging you and those who claim to walk in the supernatural privilege of hearing My voice, to consult Me on every level. I will only advise in accordance to My Father’s voice and will, in all of your affairs in life.
As you learn the joyful discipline of only heeding the voice of the Master Shepherd, you will find a pattern of absolute security surrounding you.
My ways and thoughts are so much higher than yours because they come from The Eternal Voice of love, created and sent down! My Father, your Father! The Mystery of the Godhead is not so difficult when you understand unity in thought, action, and purpose.
As a child of God who knows My voice and as one whom has known My Divine Presence, what else is there to do but to praise Me?
“Praise! It is the perfume of heaven!”
The living! The living! They praise You as I am doing today!
Yes! Praise Me for as long as you live! You were created to praise Me in this life and in the life yet to come!
When the weariness of life and the dustiness of the road you travel on become too overwhelming, too taxing... Remember! You are living in a great time of harvest! Praise Me!
When the time comes for you to take your final breath, the days of your life which have all been numbered. Then, you will step into a new dimension of praising Me.
Bring with you the praise tokens of your life. The words you have spoken about Me have been recorded. Your praises have been written down in My book!
Trust. The issue that everyone on earth deals with day in and day out. Putting your trust in things that last for only a season or a few years can be very risky and very disappointing. I have told My people to trust in ME with ALL of their heart and I will make their paths straight. Yet- continually they put their trust in people, and idols made of gold (money) positions of power and in themselves!
Lasting blessings can only come from trusting in Me. The real issue is that you don’t really think that I will do what I say I will do! So... You take it into your own hands! When you finally lay down your need to control the universe and those all around you and trust in Me, then you will be blessed! Blessed with safety, peace of mind and above all blessed by My pleasure in your resting in My plan.
“O Lord of hosts,
How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”
.... Let me see your face, let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.”
Song of Songs 2:14
This is the heart cry of those who know that nothing else in life can truly satisfy them. My voice, and the looking at My face causes a deep peace and rest to “nestle” into their souls.
It is like music to the ears when My voice is heard like a melody from heaven. Ever so true in pitch, and in message. My face is full of compassionate expression and tenderness!
Look at Me!
Seek Me in prayer!
Prayer is an intimate time of communication between you My bride, and I! As we “look intently” into spiritual dimensions together we will delight over the Father who proved His Divine love to us and through us!
All you need to do to see My face and to hear my voice is to ask Me to speak to you and to show Myself to you! Why are you so afraid? I am not a man who will lie or make false promises!
My beloved! Risk everything!
Come closer to the flame of My Spiritual fervor!

THE CHALLENGE BEGINS
"I AM RESTRUCTURING AND REFURBISHING EVERYTHING"
A Prophetic Insight For Today's Church
By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
The Lord has shown me that there are a great number of Divine plans being drawn up and a re-designing going on in the lives of those called to move into the roles of Kingdom modeling of the Father's heart, the Savior's desire and the Holy Spirit’s purest functions in the Body.
"See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms.
To uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow.
To build and to plant."
- Jeremiah 1:10
A PHASE OF "REFURBISHMENT"
The Lord spoke to me in this time about His house of worship.
As we put first and out in front of everything else, the “becoming of safe shelters” and hearts of men surrendered to him as yielded vessels, there will be rooms re-designed by the "Master’s craftsmen" that will be filled with strategically planned prayer initiatives, music rooms equipped with "unpolluted spiritual headsets" to hear the songs of the Kingdom and then actually record and share them freely.
Church sanctuaries will become more like "family rooms" where multi-cultural groups become "one family" as they fix their eyes on upon the "fireplace" of the presence of the Holy Spirit and His Upper Room visitation type of power and might, accompanied by inspired teaching from God’s word.
"I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me,
And what the King had said to me.
They replied, "Let us start refurbishment."
So they began this good work.
~ Nehemiah 2:18
I AM RESTRUCTURING EVERYTHING
"Yes says the Lord! I Am restructuring everything in your lives that I have allowed to be taken and shaken from you! How can you be examples of My fresh demonstration in the earth with the worn out living of the past?
Those who continue to cling to the accolades of the past and bygone ministry meetings and services (even if they were recent) will receive a limited amount of new responsibilities until they realize that the past is... PAST!
Each day is a new day and needs a fresh approach to the fresh design template that I AM revealing!"
"The day for building your walls will come,
the day for extending your boundaries."
The unseen prophetic and travailing groups of individuals, who are being shaped into the fabric of my own weaving, are currently being made ready for a swift and dynamic change of stride.
What was once long and hard will become shortened and filled with purpose. Release of My grace and abundant mercy is coming into fulfillment as you end your cycle of instructions for this past season.
"My friends don’t be surprised at the painful things that you are now suffering,
Which are testing your faith.
Don’t think that something strange is happening to you.
But you should be happy that you are sharing in Christ’s sufferings.
You will be happy and full of joy when Christ shows his glory."
1 PETER 4:12-13
SHOUTS OF JOY
There will be shouts and tears of joy as heaven moves upon the hearts of wise, kingdom-minded saints, who have been given grave responsibility over heavenly blessed currency.
My sober, truth-seeking saints, will hear my voice and will not be moved by flashy pleas for glamorous support and promises of free gifts in return! No! They will be led by the counsel of my Holy Spirit to be vessels that release a steady flow into the hands of those ready to only build with the name "Jesus" on the final product.
The financial institutions will be dumbfounded as supernatural windfalls hit many believers, while worldly concepts and scheming only further muddy the waters of universal finance.
RE-ESTABLISH A NEW "HABITAT OF WORSHIP"
Allow Me to do this work of re-construction without hindrance or fear!
I will RE-ESTABLISH a new "habitat of worship" within each of My people who allow Me to walk into each room of their hearts, tearing out the embedded dirt, grime and staleness of passive and fearful living.
Accusing and harsh judgments, disrespect for others who have devoted their time in preparation, and -critical attitudes will be purged again and again in the hearts of believers who have yet to see those whom I lovingly call beloved and faithful, even though viewed as awkward or fragile in the eyes of the immature or worldly heart.
"All who belong to the Lord, show how you love him!
The Lord protects the faithful,
But he firmly rebukes everyone who is proud."
A TIMELESS DESIGN
It is the day for each member of My Body to think of themselves as one Godly unit, ready to honor and edify each unique Master plan of their King.
It's the hour where building upon egos and entitlement is over and the conviction of My Spirit goes to work, until the knowledge of humility and eternal reward are viewed as the most perfect and timeless design.
"Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts,
Try to excel in gifts that build up the church."
~ 1 Corinthians 14:12
AN ASSURANCE FOR RELIEF
As the training in humility and gentleness of “heart-expanded compassion” are applied in your lives as friends of Me, your King, your souls will stop from striving and from chasing after lofty goals you set out to accomplish in your own strength.
You will learn to listen to the wisdom and warnings of others in simplicity and in humility. In gentleness you will sincerely approach one another as I the Lord do to you. Although I am the wisest among you, I put no heavy yokes or shameful methods of performance upon my children.
I simply yoke them to Myself in a promised rest when they yield humbly.
"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
For I am gentle and humble in heart,
And you will find rest for your souls."
A PROPHETIC WORD CONCLUSION:
" Hear Me! - Cries the Spirit of Holy Grace and Mercy!
I desire to move upon, in, and through each of you. Not one of you alone can endure the onslaughts of evil by standing aloof and silent. Nor can the most vocal of gifts among you clearly communicate all that I long to express.
Until each one is willing to step into the Holy place of pure relationship with Me and with one another, waiting, crying out in prayer, Yes - even waiting until I come and refresh, then those ready for training and release who are waiting in the wings will not fully come forward.
Until it is imprinted into your heart that this segment in time is for the saving of the lost, the redeeming of the wasted, and the release of the power of My glory, you will be so very frustrated by the heaviness that continually harasses your soul.
What I authorize, I protect.
Be certain that you have heard what I am saying.
I am fully aware of the weariness and fatigue you have been experiencing. Heavier than anything you can recall from the past.
“Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering,
As though something strange were happening to you!”
1 Peter 4:12
There are many others globally who are also still wrestling out of the cocoon in newness and are suffering also. PRAY FOR THEM!
Conflict will be a normal disturbance in the days ahead. Unless you harness the power of consistent prayer and train yourselves in regular gatherings of prayer and worship together, you will shrink back into serious doubt, anxiety and dread when the trauma of warfare attacks!!
GIVE VOICE TO MY SPIRIT!
Awaken your silent tongue and give voice to my name, My power and My Kingdom Solutions! No resistance executed against you will ultimately succeed! My Spirit longs to broadcast wonders, to decree Justice, and to destroy darkness with your lips proclaiming from the spirit.
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
But will accomplish what I desire
And achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
Speak out in truth and in praise and I will step into your midst with the peace you have been craving and seeking for. Quickly! Enter in before you make decisions and exchange ideas with others who might dilute what I am speaking to you!
When I am given My rightful place of honor and reverence…
… Then I will speak and give you clear vision and direction."
"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning
I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. "

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.”
