Happy Resurrection Sunday 2017!!!

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

Happy Resurrection Sunday 2017!!!

All around the world many are remembering the Resurrection of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. This year as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord & Savior, we need to truly be aware of what He has done for us. To some this day is only a mere ritual…to some this day is a time of reflection of what He had done for us over 2000 years ago & celebrate that blessing. But to a small remnant, it is a reminder that we need to desperately seek for Him to truly be Lord of our lives. Rom 6:16  says: “Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” This is a staggering statement!

When Jesus died on the Cross, He paid for our sins & we deeply thank Him for such a great sacrifice! If we would take the time to understand what it meant for Him to do that for us…the truth there is mind-boggling…the torture & mutilation that He endured is horrible! Back in the 1970s, as a young Christian we were at a local Bible Book store & I saw an “artist’s conception” of what Jesus looked like after He was scourged & hung on the Cross. All I can tell you is, He looked like living human “hamburger”. But, our Lord didn’t stop there…yes, He paid for the sins of mankind with His death, but when God raised Him from the dead, He gave something extraordinary…He gave us our justification: Rom 4:25  says: “Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification”. As we believe on Him powerful forces are put into play that we MUST apply to our lives.

Our walk as Christians is not just some religious “hobby” or “social club”…it is suppose to be life changing! Rom. 6:5  says: “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection”. This speaks of our dying to self…something that not many Christians truly ever wish to embrace, but it is vitally important to our walk with God. Paul said in 1 Cor. 15:31: “…I die daily”. Jesus said we are to “take up our cross daily & follow Him” (Lk. 9:23). Someone might ask…”why am I sharing these things? This day is “suppose” to be our time to celebrate His resurrection!” Yes, it is…it is time that we celebrate His resurrection as He intended us to.

Many will say they want to “know the Lord”….they want the power of God in their lives…they will say they want the anointing of God upon them. Yes, these are all very good things…things that God truly desires each of us to walk in! But, there is a cost! Remember again…Phil. 3:10  says: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”. So what is the cost? It is our “surrendering unto Him”. If we desire to see the power of His resurrection manifesting in our lives, we MUST be willing to be made conformable to His death…in other words…we must die to self.

This Resurrection Sunday, we need to put things in their proper perspective…Jesus didn’t die on the Cross just so our sins would be forgiven & stop there…no, He died so He would then be resurrected…it was for our sake! His resurrection made it possible for us to be like Him, because He was raised for our “justification”. What does justification\ justify mean? Well, some have looked at it this way….”just as if I”- never sinned. This is good, but it actually means “acquittal”…ie, “not guilty”. This makes it possible for us to become like Him. But, it is up to us to apply His resurrection to our lives. We can take hold of His power & run with Him, allowing to conform us to His image, by surrendering our lives unto Him…or we can just take His resurrection for granted & see no real change in our lives.

Lets make this Resurrection Sunday impact our lives in a life-changing, world-changing way…for if we will surrender our all unto Him, He will use us to change this lost & dying world. He is looking for those who will be open, available & obedient. We can ALL do that…we just have to make the decision & go forward! Now, as we begin to walk this out the enemy is not going to make things easy for us…that is why He said “take up your cross DAILY & follow Me”. Like the Apostle Paul, we must be resolved in our hearts to…”I die daily”. Does this mean we are to live out our lives in misery, never enjoying anything again? No, not at all…it just means we are to surrender to the Lord the things that He deems unpleasing unto Him. The word “I” in the Greek here means “ego”, ie, “pride”…we must die to our pride…enough said!

When Jesus walked on this earth, He enjoyed life, He laughed, ate good food, did things like most anyone…He did what most people would expect. He didn’t walk around all gloomy & discouraged about His life…& He knew He had been born to die a tragic death! His life is our model to follow. We can BE like Him…we just need to take that first step…be open to Him…to His will. Then take the next step…be available for Him to speak into our lives about the things He wants us to do. Then we must follow through & obey what He has said. That is what He did when He walked this earth. All 3 of these require take we subdue our “pride”. Jesus only did what He saw His Father do & only spoke what He heard His Father say:

John 5:19: “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise”.
John 8:28: “Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
John 12:49 He said: “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak”.
John 12:50 He said: “And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak”.

We can learn to do the same! Let’s celebrate His Resurrection as He desires…let this be our prayer today:

“Heavenly Father, help us to see Your life as You desire us to see it. Help us to experience Your resurrection power…now today…as we choose to know You intimately in our lives. Help us to deny ourselves & take up our cross daily & follow you, that we may surrender ourselves completely to You…one step at a time…one day at a time. We choose You, Lord! Please, make us like You! In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray, amen!”

Happy Resurrection Sunday 2017!

The Lord Desires His People To Come Close

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

I want to share with you something that the Lord has placed upon my heart. As many of you know, recently my wife & I became grandparents, as our oldest son & his wife gave birth to their first child on Dec. 5, 2016. They have truly had their hands full ever since, being new parents, they must rearrange, juggle & adapt to life with a baby. These first months have really been hard on them & they asked both grandparent families to help for a time. They asked Julie & I to come help take care of the baby for 2 weeks in March, so his wife could return to work for a few weeks…with her working they could pay their large deductible on the medical insurance for the baby’s delivery. Back in 1980 when James was born, we had Kaiser health insurance & only paid $4USD for his birth…yes 4 whole dollars! But, much has changed since then, as they face paying a huge hospital bill…somewhere around $6000USD. So, Julie & I agreed to help them with the baby for 2 weeks, so they could pay the deductible on their insurance.

Originally we were both going to travel to the Houston, TX area where they live & stay there for the 2 weeks to help with the baby, but as I prayed, I felt the Lord wanted me to stay here at home & Julie to go to Houston to help. I didn’t fully understand why the Lord wanted this at first, but now I understand His reasons. For one, that way I could continue working on remodeling\renovating our home, while doing the work of the ministry. The way things turned out, Julie left on Feb. 26th & stayed in Houston until March 17th, nearly 3 weeks. During that time, she was able to come home one weekend & then I went to Houston on the 2nd weekend.

Julie & I have been happily married for 44 & a half years now, this October will be our 45th anniversary. During all of these years, we have rarely been apart…I do not know the actually number, but it is probably less than 30 days total over these 44+ years. We never want to be separated, but over the years for various reasons, ministry conferences that only one could attend, spiritual retreats, as well as going to help family, etc. our days apart have been few. During this 3 weeks period we were apart, I began to feel deep emotion as intense sadness & longing for us to be together. As I prayed about this, the Lord began to speak to me & relay to me His heart…He gave me the following word for His people…a word that will touch each of you to various levels & degrees. Please prayerfully receive His words & allow His love to minister deeply to you:

BEGIN PROPHETIC WORD

“My Bride, I come to you with a heart of love, longing for you to know My heart. For My people do not know the depth of My love for them & how I long for My people to desire to be with Me! For I desire you to be close to Me…so close you will never want to be apart. For even as your pastor has relayed his feelings that he experienced over those 3 weeks, even so, the intensity of those feelings came from Me, as I was showing him My heart for all of you. You do not know the intensity of My love & desire for you to be close to Me, though you may spend time with Me & touch My heart. For as you would seek Me to know this for yourselves, you would never ever want to be away from Me ever again.

There is SO much going on in this present world & many are consumed with so many other things, the feeling of My love for you can take a back seat, as you attend to that which presents itself as being more important with your time. For as you wrestle with your daily problems…as you toil with your developing situations & circumstances…as you navigate through troubled waters, seeking answers, you do not recognize the importance of coming to Me & resting at My feet. So much is going on around you that you feel the necessity to keep yourselves “busy”, by trying to get to where you think you ought to be. I love you, My people & I desire for you to come close to Me & learn what I have for you.

For it is only as you will let go of what you perceive to be important & set your attentions & focus onto Me, that will you find the answers that you are looking for. As you will seek Me, for ME & not just for Me to do something for you, you will see the doors open & ways made plain. Do you not know that placing anything before Me, makes that thing an idol, no matter how important or justified your reasoning may seem to be? I care about the things that trouble you…I hurt when you hurt. I am grieved when you feel that you must concentrate your time & energies onto things that take you away from Me. For, the breakthroughs that you need will not be easily found doing what you feel you must do.

The answers that you need…the directions that you need to go…the provision that you are looking for can only be easily found as you dedicate yourself into seeking Me. For as you will come aside & rest with Me…as you will seek My face as never before…as you will find Me as your only answer to all things…THEN will you see the things that you are looking for begin to manifest. For I have already made all provision for you…I have already laid out every door for you to go through…I have already mapped out all the directions that you will ever need to follow. But none of these things can be easily found, walking haphazardly along in your life…they can only be easily found by your staying within Me.

As you will be willing to come close to Me & seek My face, spending time with Me just to be with Me, I will direct you into the way that you should go…I will guide you to the left or to the right, as I lead you in My way. I cannot do this when you only come to Me for the answers that you need…I cannot do this when you only come to Me for the directions that you seek…I cannot do this when you only come to Me for the provisions you are looking for Me to give…I can only do this when you come to Me for Me…for when you come to Me for only those things that you desire, you do not see that these things have come between us as idols & separate you from Me…there can be nothing between us!

You know that even more perilous times are coming…you know that My shaking has already begun…you know that the way things have been, is not going to be the way things continue to be. I need you to truly see this for your lives, so you can concentrate on what truly matters. It is vitally important that you move yourself into the position of coming close to Me…for very soon this will be nearly impossible to do. For if you find it difficult to be close to Me now, how do you think you will be able to come close when things really get hard? I say this so you will recognize the importance of what I am now sharing with you. I want you to be in the right place at the right time…you can do this only in Me.

I have treasures waiting for you in that secret place…I have a feast of knowledge & fulfillment…the true satisfaction that only I can give is waiting for you there. I do not want to be apart from you any longer…I need you to make the heart determination to come close to Me. I am not saying that the things you are doing are wrong or evil…I am only saying that many of your attentions are misplaced & much in your lives are not going as you desire because you are not where you belong…you belong close to Me. Do you sense My tears, as I say this? If you will only be willing to dedicate yourselves to come close to Me, you will be able to breakthrough into that place that I have prepared for you.

That is where you truly desire to be…there is no struggle there…only rest…there is no lack there, only fulfillment & satisfaction…there is no confusion there, only love & peace. I desire for you to be close to Me, as you never have been before…for time is running out & you have no idea what tomorrow may bring. But, as you will be willing, I will make it easier for you to bring yourselves to this place of love & fulfillment. I will make it easier for you to bring yourselves to this place of answers & peace. For I will give you sign posts along in your life to beckon to you. I will give you soft promptings along the way. These sign posts will be My way of helping you to know how to come close to Me & what to do.

For they will convict you…they will admonish you…they will warn you…but not in a harsh or angry way…no, not in that way, at all…but in a loving & gentle way…for I desire you to know My love as never before. Hear Me, My people & become the Bride I desire you to be…for the time has come, that the Bride make herself ready. She cannot do this apart from Me…she needs to be separated & close to Me for this to happen. That is why it is imperative that you heed My call to you & make the decision to be close to My heart…seeking My face & walking out My will for you. For if you will set yourselves to do this, you will not be disappointed…for you will be where you need to be, says the Lord”.

END PROPHETIC WORD

May the Lord bless each of you as you begin to seek Him more closely in your lives & allow Him to direct you into His will for you!

Prophetic Word For 2017 (Part 2)

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

A few days ago we finished our annual 21 day Daniel fast! We rejoice to see our prayers were answered as we prayed through the attacks leading up to the presidential inauguration & we praise the Lord for the powerful transfer of power from one president to our next. We continue to pray for our new President, that the Lord will lead him in wisdom, as he puts into action the many changes that are needed in this country. We have been praying for all of those that have been able to fast with us & hope you are beginning to see breakthrough in your lives. From our own personal experience we can tell you that the greatest breakthroughs tend to occur around a week or so after the fast is over. May the Lord richly bless you, for your willingness to fast unto Him!

As I was spending time with the Lord early the other morning, He gave me this word for His people regarding this year…it is a continuation from the last one. Please prayerfully receive His words into your heart & lovingly & obediently respond to Him loving heart & will for you.

BEGIN PROPHETIC WORD

“My children, hear the words of your Heavenly Father…listen to My heart & know that I love you with an everlasting love. For I come to you this day to establish you in truth. Not the truth of this world…not the truth of the religious…but in the truth of your God. For I have come to you & told you that you are entering into a time of change…I have told you that the time for refining has come…I have told you that it was time for you to seek Me as never before. I told you that judgment must begin at the house of God, but many of you have become lax & have cast My words away from you, thinking I will wink at the things that you continue to do. You must have a change of heart while you still can.

For man has taught you things that are not of Me. For I hear in the hearts of My people that you are saved by grace, through faith, not of works, lest any man should boast…I hear in the hearts of My people that you believe you are righteous because of what I have done…yes these things ARE true, My people, but many do not know what these truths really mean. For it is true that you are saved by grace, through faith…it is true that you can only be righteous through My Son’s finished work on the Cross……but most will stop there & not apply the reality of these truths to affect their lives. If My righteousness is truly within you, your life actions will show the fruit of righteousness in everything you do.

If My salvation is truly within you, then your life will show forth the fruit of My salvation in what you do, as well. For this is what My word actually says…but many do not know this, because they will “stop” reading after reading the “good stuff”, not knowing the full truth of what I said. For even as I said, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph. 2:8-9), many will either forget or ignore what I said next: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Eph.2:10). If you are saved, you should be walking in good works.

The same goes for the righteousness that is in My Son. In 1 Jn 2:29 I said: “If you know that He is righteous, you know that every one that does righteousness is born of him”…in 1 Jn. 3:7 I said: “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous”. Yes, righteousness indeed does come from Me & when My children will truly receive My truth & walk in it, they will “do” righteousness in what they do. I tell you these things because the time is short & there is much that I desire you to do. My people are to do exploits that this world has never seen…but as long as My people will not walk in the things that I have given them, nothing will ever change.

This I say because of the era you have now entered…for 2017 will be known as the year that My people arose & changed the world on a level this world has never seen. This is why it is so important that you heed the things that I tell you…it is time to repent in your hearts & lives & be the light of this world, that I have called you to be. Your prayers are important, but you must pray according to My will & not you own. For many will pray for Me to do things in their lives, but their lives do not reflect the desire of their prayers. What did I tell you…”Confess your faults one to another & pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (Jam 5:16).

Did you really see what I said? You want your prayers to be effectual, but how can they be when you will not confess your faults to one another & pray for one another? Do you not see that this is an area of pride which will keep you from being healed? For as you will humble yourselves & confess your faults to those you can trust, then these can pray for you & the healing will come…the healing you need so you can do the exploits that I desire the world to see. For the healing that is needed is deep within…in your inner most being. Please hear this & know the truth. Healing begins within & emanates outwardly. Remember what I said…you are to work out your own salvation with fear & trembling.

This is not speaking of working or earning your own salvation…this speaks of the salvation that My Son has given you…it is to work “outwardly” from within you…from the inner most being of the heart…for it is the heart that truly needs healing. The heart is where sin originates…so as the heart is healed, I will be able to use you on a level you have never known. Get ready for changes to come! For as you will honor My words & humble yourselves & seek Me to heal you where you need healing the most…I will do a great work within you & you will rejoice at the changes that are about to come. This is your time…you know what you must do…you will not be disappointed, says the Lord”.

END PROPHETIC WORD

The Lord is speaking graciously to each of us & desires our response from the heart…His word is intense, as well as endearing. He told me that there was more He wants to say to us & He will impart more into our lives soon. But, right now, we must take what He has said thus far & be willing to humble ourselves, as He said. Please honor the Lord by the obedient response of your heart!

BTW…in the previous word the Lord gave us on Jan. 7th, He spoke of many receiving “surprises” in the days ahead. My wife & I have already seen Him bring several “surprises” to us just in the past several weeks. If He has given any surprises to you, please let us know, so we can rejoice with you! Until next time!

2017 Word From The Lord & This Year’s Daniel Fast

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

We will be starting our annual 21 day Daniel fast on January 10th & will continue through January 31st. The purpose of this annual fast is to seek the Lord for His directions for the new year. We have been seeking the Lord through this fast each year for nearly 25 years. We invite you to join us, as we seek the Lord during this time, expecting breakthroughs to come & open doors to manifest for His glory. We felt led to start this year’s fast on the 10th, as we want to be praying & warring over the coming inauguration which is on the 20th.

The Lord has given me this word to share with His people, to prepare them for what is ahead…please prayerfully read His words & allow them to penetrate your hearts:

BEGIN PROPHETIC WORD

“My children, let not your hearts be troubled…know that I love you with an everlasting love. For the past several months many of you have felt a weighty pressure & have wondered what was going on & why this was happening. Over those months there has been much activity in the spirit realm & much change has occurred during that time. In this time, many of you have been called into war to pray concerning recent events & this time of warfare has left you heavy & without strength. But now, in this new year there will be great change for My people as you will shake yourselves free from complacency. This year will be great for you as you get out of your comfort zones & draw close to Me, anew.

For now is the time to forget those things that are behind you & to begin to seek Me afresh in this new year, as you have never sought Me before. For this I say to help you to understand…all of My past warnings, My words of edification, exhortation & comfort have lead up to this time…for this is the time for you to truly SEE Me come in your hearts & lives. For as you will truly seek Me, you will see Me bring forth My promises to pass before you…but you must consecrate your lives before Me, desiring My will to be done. Behold…I speak the word “surprises” to you…for many of you will see Me begin to bring forth surprises into your lives as you continue to do what I desire you to do…so be faithful!

Just be faithful in your hearts & lives towards Me…this is vitally important at this time…for the enemy is attempting to draw many of My people back into old patterns & old habits…for these are “distractions” designed to draw My people deeper into complacency, so they will not seek Me, as they must during this time. For this I say to help you, so that you will not find yourselves shipwrecked in your faith. Never forget that judgment begins at the house of God! If you will notice, the house cleaning has already begun…for it began on the leadership level. More & more you will hear of pastors & leaders falling away…being ravaged in their bodies & many dying…but this will also soon begin in the body.

For many of My people are being lured away from Me, back into old ways…these never truly surrendered to Me & very soon these will see My hand of correction come…this is because of My great love for them. For many say in their heart that they are close to Me, feeling My presence in times of corporate worship, not knowing that this in itself is only touching the edge of My presence. For the love, joy & peace that is felt during those times, where My presence is manifest, is only the beginning…for this is when I desire consume My people & come greatly into their hearts & lives, to change them. For if My people will truly allow Me to refine them during these times, they will never be the same again.

Never forget that if anyone be in Christ, he is a new creation…old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new! When all things become new, there can be no going back to what is passed away…for such a one is dead unto sin & alive unto Me…how can My people live any longer therein? Hear Me, My people…the time has come for you to enter into Me as never before…there can be no more playing games. I love you, My people…please run unto Me in My love! My desire is for you to rise up in this hour…for things are about to change. There will be that which is good…there will also be that which is not good. Where you will stand during these times will depend on where your heart truly is.

My desire is for you to see only that which is good…so let your heart be found in Me! I speak to those who say they are Mine…hear the love in My voice to you. I do not want you to stand in that place where the “not good” will be…so run unto Me & My love…shake yourselves free from that which would tempt you. Find it in yourselves to break free from that which will cause offenses, for I have given you the strength to do this, you just have to assert yourselves, nothing wavering. For many of you are like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed…I want you to see yourselves, as I see you in the Spirit…for I see you standing firm, unmovable, always abounding in the work of Me, your Lord.

I have given each of you the ability to rise up against all that would torment & deceive you…remember…My strength is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in your weakness…but you must access My strength through submission…you must make the decision to do so. Choose this day who you will serve…for I set before you this day, life & death…please choose life! For no one can force you to change…no one can make you come close to Me. Only you make the decision…only you can go the way you decide to go. I have good things in store for you, as you will come to Me…for there is nothing that can compare to what I am & have for you. Please choose to come close to Me…let go of all else!

For in this year you will see many changes come…good changes…but also some bad changes, but I will keep you through the bad, as you will humble yourselves before Me. Do not let fear take hold of you or cause you to fall…you must come close to Me, while there is still time to do so. I have good things that I desire you to see come…you must stand fast in the liberty in which I have made you free…do not allow any yoke of bondage to take hold of you…keep yourselves free…to be all that I desire you to be. For My army is about to arise & make a difference in this world…you must do all that you can to be there with Me. Surrender all you truly are unto Me & watch what I will do, says the Lord”

END PROPHETIC WORD

May the Lord speak to your hearts, as we walk forward in this new year…begin to seek Him deeply for His will in this new year…2017 is going to be exciting! If you would like to join us during this fast, please let us know, so we can be praying for you. If you want to fast with us, but are unable to follow the Daniel fast for any reason, you can still fast something…just ask the Lord what He would want you to fast unto Him…we know He will honor your sacrifice.

Love & blessings,

The State Of This Nation

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

Yesterday as I was praying over a prophetic word, the Holy Spirit illuminated something to me that is profound & powerful. While the Lord didn’t give me this posting written in a literal prophetic word “format”, the content is very prophetic. The truth & reality in this message is staggering as it relates to this nation, to the world & to us…God’s people. This illumination came as God’s words exploded in my heart & spirit…2 Chron. 7:14:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.

There is much talk about judgment coming to this nation…I hear many say that God is going to judge this nation because this nation is turned from God & will not repent. Yes, judgment will someday come, if there is no repentance, but if we will “hear” what God actually said in 2 Chron. 7:14 we can see that WE have a part in God’s judgment coming to the land or for the land to be healed. The thing is, the Church must take responsibility, where responsibility is due.

To those of us who live in the USA, we need to see that this IS our land. God did not speak this “if” of 2 Chron 7:14 to all of the inhabitants of the land (in our case, in the USA). No, He was speaking to HIS PEOPLE. This passage was originally spoken to the children of Israel, but it also pertains to us, because through Christ we have become an en-grafted branch of Israel (Rom. 11). God said, IF MY PEOPLE…! Are we His people? So, if we will truly receive what He has said here, we must take responsibility where it is due…for whether we receive it or not this responsibility falls entirely on the church. For many years now, the Lord has been having me tell His people that we are “the light of the world” & that the condition of the world is dependent on the light that we shine to it. Somehow this truth has not sunken down & become part of God’s people, as we continue to see things getting worse. There is no real repentance in the body of Christ, as a whole.

The USA was founded as a Christian nation…one nation, under God. The Lord already said in the last posting in His prophetic word to His people on Oct. 14th, that around the mid 1900s, the church began to become seriously complacent & began removing itself from truly being the light of the world. Since then, this nation has gone downhill, becoming more & more reprobate. In the last several years, we have seen this nation fall even deeper into immorality & perversion. We hear cries of “judgment” from various prophetic voices, saying God said He is going to destroy this nation for not repenting. The problem is, God already told us that judgment begins at the house of God (1 Pet. 4:17).

If God’s prophetic voices must speak judgment, it should be directed to the house of God…not bombarding this nation with condemnation! Somehow these people forget that God is a God of mercy…their mindsets seemed to be fixed on “judgment”. Have they forgotten that we are living in the dispensation of “grace”? God is more willing to show mercy, then to judge…for His mercy triumphs over judgment (James 2:13). Many prophetic voices today seem to have missed this, as they fail to “prophesy” the very mercy that they themselves have received. Somehow they forget that God “is long suffering, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9). They forget that it is the “goodness of God that leads to repentance” (Rom. 2:4). His judgment comes as a last resort.

Prophetic voices today should be majoring on calling for repentance in the body of Christ…not to the nation & world…for God says that the church is where judgment will begin. What good does it do to speak damning words of judgment to a nation that does not know God? It appears to me that these speaking judgment are only speaking out of hate. Do you think that the unsaved people in this nation will ever respond to harsh words of judgment with their repentance? God says, it is His goodness that leads us to repentance. It is the body of Christ that needs to repent…the body of Christ must walk as the light of this world, showing the goodness of God & then repentance will come to this nation & world. How can I say this? Because this is the way that God works! So many prophetic voices have minds that are fixed on damnation, when God has given us a better way…it is called GRACE.

God wants to heal this land we live in…but He said it was up to us, for this to happen. He said WE are to humble ourselves & pray, seek His face & turn from OUR wicked ways…then He will hear from Heaven, forgive OUR sin & heal OUR land. YES…heal THIS nation! The problem is, the church “winks” at sin…the church is full of sin. Remember, Jesus said we ARE the light of the world (Matt. 5:14). God said that light dispels darkness (John 1:5), so if we look at the world, we will only see what the church has been shining! This sinful, evil nation & world are only mirroring the church! So, why would God destroy this nation, when it is the church that is responsible for the sin & evil that exists today? God’s people do not want to take responsibility for this reality…it is more convenient to just condemn the world for being “evil”, when God said “for all have sinned & come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).

God forbid, that we should look at our lives…at what we have done on both sides of the Cross! Oh, ok…I see…”wink, wink”…yes, we are covered by the Blood of Jesus, so everything is “OK” with us…we can live just as we please & keep shining a complacent & compromised light to this world, for we are saved by grace! That is such hypocrisy!!! How dare we ignore our own weaknesses, justifying what we have done (& in many cases still do)…but not willing to show the same compassion & mercy on the unsaved world around us! I can’t help but remember something that Jesus said:

Mat 7:1  Judge not, that you be not judged.
Mat 7:2  For with what judgment you judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Mat 7:3  And why behold you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?
Mat 7:4  Or how wilt you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye?
Mat 7:5  You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shalt you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother’s eye.

Recently I read on a blog: “can anyone show me in the Bible where a prophet cried out for mercy on a nation that turned from the Lord?” I must say…I was really shocked to read this…it is truly sad that some people seem to have a fixed mindset of judgment. Have they forgotten that we are living in the New Testament age? The answer to that question is a resounding “YES”…this happened in the Bible…even back during Old Testament times! In fact, the prophet who “did this” very thing is the one who God used to write the entire Torah…it was none other than Moses! Yep, in Ex. 32, when the Israelites built a golden calf idol, offered sacrifice & worshiped it…God wanted to destroy them, but Moses cried out for God & stood up to spare Israel:

Exodus 32:10-14:

Exo 32:10  Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.
Exo 32:11  And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why does your wrath wax hot against your people, which you have brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?
Exo 32:12  Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from your fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against your people.
Exo 32:13  Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self, and said unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.
Exo 32:14  And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

As we look at this scenario, we see how God felt that the children of Israel DESERVED to be destroyed…after all…how could they turn away from Him like this…especially right after He delivered them out of Egypt from Pharaoh through many signs & wonders! Surely if many of today’s prophetic voices were living back then, they would of shouted in agreement with God & let God destroy them. BUT!!!! But, Moses, a TRUE prophet of God…had a different heart…he showed us all the model which prophetic voices should be emulating…Moses showed MERCY…he cried out to God to spare them! But, wait, God TOLD Moses He was going to destroy them…so, Moses, as a “prophet of God” was suppose to “obey the Lord” & speak judgment to the nation of Israel! But, he didn’t…he had a different heart than what we see a lot of today!

I know that in the Old Testament there was a lot of judgment spoken by the prophets during that time, but we no longer living in the Old testament age…they were under the law. We ARE living in the New Testament age…God’s prophetic voices should be modeling after the New Testament says. John 1:17 says: “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”. So, what does the New Testament say about prophets & prophecy? There are several passages in the NT which give us a clear picture:

Luk 9:51  And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
Luk 9:52  And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
Luk 9:53  And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
Luk 9:54  And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
Luk 9:55  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, You know not what manner of spirit you are of.
Luk 9:56  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Here we clearly SEE Jesus rebuking His disciples for having an old testament mindset of speaking judgment…they even used Elijah as their example to follow. What…wait a minute…that’s what Elijah did! But, what did Jesus say in response to them? Now let’s read this again & HEAR Jesus’ own words…He said: “You know not what manner of spirit you are of, for the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them”. Jesus literally told them they had a WRONG spirit. So, who else in the Gospels had a similar mindset, ie, wrong spirit…always wanting to condemn & judge? The Pharisees & Sadducees. They had a severe “heart problem” which they never could let go of & repent, even though Jesus spoke the truth to them. They claimed to be speaking for God, but Jesus condemned THEM time & time again for their judgmental & hypocritical heart! Surely, many prophetic voices today need to take heed & look within their own hearts. Yes, God will someday judge this nation & world…but until He does, our “job” is to walk in grace & love, interceding for the lost…not speaking in damning voices, claiming they are hearing from God. Our job is not “to destroy men’s lives, but to save them”.

Well, someone might say…even Jesus prophesied judgment in Matt. 24:

Mat 24:1  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
Mat 24:2  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down (this was also spoken in Luke 21).

Yes, Jesus prophesied this to his disciples…it was going to happen sometime in the future…He spoke this knowing that “God’s chosen people” would later reject Him & crucify Him & bring judgment on themselves. But, this didn’t happen right away…this warning was fulfilled approx. 40 years later in 70AD when the Romans destroyed the Temple & the Jews were scattered abroad. These Gospel passages show us a transition beginning to take place, even before the church age began…ie, after the Cross.

Let’s look at the 1st book of the New Testament:

Act 11:25  Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:
Act 11:26  And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Act 11:27  And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.
Act 11:28  And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

Act 21:8  And the next day we that were of Paul’s company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.
Act 21:9  And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.
Act 21:10  And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.
Act 21:11  And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owns this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
Act 21:12  And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.
Act 21:13  Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
Act 21:14  And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.

Act 27:21  But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.
Act 27:22  And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship.
Act 27:23  For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
Act 27:24  Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
Act 27:25  Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
Act 27:26  Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.

Now, you will notice that in Acts, there was no mention of any prophet crying out judgment & damnation to the nations…in the 1st passage prophets are only mentioned regarding prophesying “within the church” & the last example, Paul only prophesied “exhortation & good cheer” to those on the ship. Next we can look at the instructions that Paul gave to the church regarding prophets & prophecy in 1 Cor. 14:

1Cor 14:3  But he that prophesies speaks unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
1Cor 14:24  But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believes not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
1Cor 14:25  And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
1Cor 14:30  If any thing be revealed to another that sits by, let the first hold his peace.
1Cor 14:31  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
1Cor 14:32  And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
1Cor 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
1Cor 14:37  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

Paul’s instruction regarding the prophetic office & prophecy shows the “gift” at work…including “edification, and exhortation, and comfort” & also bringing unbelievers unto salvation. Paul ends the instruction by saying that if someone thinks he is a prophet will acknowledge that the things he wrote are the commandments of the Lord. Something is very wrong with all of this talk of “judgment” we keep hearing! It is no wonder there is so much confusion in the body of Christ today! God says “the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets”. Jesus said “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matt. 12:34 & Luk 6:45). God said that the prophetic voices in this age are to prophesy “edification, and exhortation, and comfort” to the church & minister to the unbeliever…just like Jesus did with the woman at the well in John 4. He didn’t condemn or judge her, though she was living in sin. NO…He ministered to her by word of knowledge & showed grace & mercy to her. Somehow this is missed by many prophetic voices today & instead of seeing that a nation is nothing but individuals who need salvation, they are being harmed by words of damnation & judgment, which will only push people away. This New Testament prophet is further clarified in Eph. 4:

Eph 4:11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

The prophetic voices in the New Testament church are GIVEN (along with the apostles, evangelists, pastors & teachers) to perfect the saints, so the saints can do the work of the ministry, so the entire body may grown up in the image of Christ. I don’t see anything there where God said prophets are to speak judgment to the world…NO! No, God said judgment begins at the house of God! God’s intent is for the church to shine the light of Jesus Christ to this lost & dying world…this will in turn cause the world to change…repentance will only come to this nation & world, as the body of Christ repents & begins to truly shine the light that God intended! History has proved this time & time again…when the church truly “shines”, entire cities, regions & nations are changed!

In these days we live in, we need to be vessels of God’s love, not vessels of condemnation & judgment. If we will walk with a true heart of humility, we will see that all of the people represented in this nation are no better than us…we just have received the grace & mercy of God. It is time for the church to stop spouting all of this condemnation & judgment & start to make a REAL difference in the world, while there is still time.

Lastly, as part of “shining” the light of Christ…it is imperative that God’s people in the USA vote. Dr. James Dobson of “Focus On The Family” rebuked Christians, “I think it is a disgrace that half the Christians in America aren’t even registered to vote, and of those who are, only half go to the polls… When we withhold our influence and participation, we yield by default to those who promote immoral and destructive policies.” Voting is important!

Estimates show that at least 50 million Christians did NOT vote in 2008 &  2012. They either felt that their vote didn’t change anything, or they were just too complacent to care to make a difference. I was shocked to hear that over 6 million Christians voted for the current president! What has happened here in the USA the past 8 years is ultimately the responsibility of the body of Christ. I hear arguments of “nonsense”, people justifying their not voting for “spiritual reasons”…hogwash! Voting is one way we can express our voice!

Please vote in this election…for God’s people, there is only one choice…voting for one will take the USA further down the slippery slope of progressive liberalism & socialism…voting for the other will make America great again.

Word of Urgency Regarding The Upcoming Election

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

In my times of prayer the past many weeks the Lord has been speaking to me regarding this nation & the urgency of the hour. We who live in the USA are now at a major cross-road…one that this nation has never seen. I have never been one to think much about politics…in the past actually I always hated politics…but the Lord has given me the realization that this coming election in Nov. will set the stage for the future of this nation.

I hear people speak differing things of what they believe “the Lord has shown them” about what is ahead in this election & for the USA. It is interesting that all of these people believe they have heard from God & they are convinced that they are “right”. Some might ask me…what is the Lord telling me? I have spent considerable time asking Him about all of this. I was truly surprised to hear what He said, because it wasn’t what I expected to hear, at all. The Lord gave me this very sobering word to share with you about the time we are now in…please prayerfully receive it with your full heart:

BEGIN PROPHETIC WORD

“My sons & daughters…I care deeply for all of you…I love each of you with an everlasting love…please hear Me as I tell you the way things are. The time in which you are living in is unlike any time before…this is not the time to remain complacent or compromised…this is the time to rise up & fight! For there is a fight going on in both the seen & unseen realms. For some would say that Christians are not to become involved in politics, for you are “strangers & pilgrims, citizens of another country”, but I tell you that this thinking is nothing but foolish complacency. You are not living in 1st century Rome where My people had no rights to speak or declare My word…but these still stood up & spoke for Me!

You live in a time & a place where you should be rising up & making your voice known! Your complacency is robbing you of the very rights that the founding fathers of this nation fought for long ago. Can you not see how complacency has changed you, My people? Just decades ago, My people used to stand in public places & influence school boards, city councils & other places of politics, but now there is a rising voice, which comes not of Me, saying to even abstain from voting & making your voice heard. It has been said that “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”…so what is the excuse of so many of My people today? Where is your fight for what is right?

There are those who will say that “My judgment is coming & nothing will stop it”…but this is only a half truth of the enemy! For My word says that “mercy triumphs over judgment”. How can I ignore the multitudes that cry out to Me day & night, begging Me for more time for revival to come? For their voices rise to Me at all times…how can I ignore the cry to give this nation mercy…one last time, to be a place that is “one nation under God”. For surely, My judgment WILL come at the appointed time, but who says that time has already come? None of you where there during the board meeting in Heaven before the world was! I have only given you things to look for & to know the end was “near”.

I showed you these things so you would know the time was “at the door”…but no man knows the day or the hour…not even My Son! Do not presumptuously think that I cannot grant grace for more time before the end comes. For the voices of all those who cry out to Me have risen in My ears & I will not ignore them! Look at your hearts, My children & I will show you what is within them…for those who will stay fixated on & saying that My judgment must come NOW, show hatred & bitterness in their hearts… instead these should be crying out for mercy on the multitudes who have not heard My salvation. How can you say My love is abiding in you, when your heart will hold to such hateful things?

Where is your love for the lost…where is your love, My people? For this is what I have told you…for this is what I have showed you: “O man, what is good & what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly & to love mercy & to walk humbly with your God? So, where is your love of mercy? Why do you instead stand in wrath, demanding My judgment to come, when My Spirit came to seek & to save that which is lost? There is a great need for repentance in My people! I have said that “judgment MUST begin at the house of God”, so, this repentance MUST begin in My leadership & to those who say they hear My voice! For the cry of prophets wrongly demand Me to judge, when I came to save!

Hear Me, My people & know that – yes, My judgment is coming…but it will come FIRST to My House…for I will come to the heart of those who say they love Me & I will judge them from within. There will be a quick “house cleaning” & many who refuse to hear My voice will fall away…they will be consumed by their own own hatred & bitterness…& many will die tragic deaths because they refuse to hear My love for mercy. I challenge those who will say that I must now judge this world…for in your doing so, you bring My judgment upon you! I challenge you to have a changed heart…one that I can flow through…for this is the age of grace & My grace must fill your heart while there is still time!

I hear so many voices in the world from My people today…voices that vary & are opposite one the other…for one will cry for mercy, while the other cries for judgment. So many have forgotten that I said “blessed are merciful, for they shall receive mercy”. So many claim they know My word, but how many of these will LIVE it? Do you want mercy in these last days? Then love mercy, for “blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God”. Do you not even know that the very creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God? The entire creation is being affected by My people’s lack of mercy, when I desire revival! For the earth has yet to receive the early & latter rain together!

This last move of My Spirit will come, but it is the choice of My people how this will be. For I desire for this to happen with My people rising up & doing exploits, taking this world back from the devil for the glory of God…but if complacency continues, just the opposite will happen…the last outpouring will occur at a time of great persecution & trials. It doesn’t have to be this way…I would rather have it the other way! But, My people will have to make a severe turn around for this to happen. So many have already been lulled to sleep & think that there is nothing that can be done & they just need to let the end come. This is foolish thinking…this thinking will only bring judgment on you quickly!

Have you not seen or heard what is going on in the political world? Are you So removed from things, that you cannot see that your own complacency has crippled you so that you just let all this corruption happen? How could you forget that this nation was founded on Me & My word? Will you just roll over & let the enemy take over & have the end come…or will you stand up & fight for what is right! My people have a voice…but that voice has been eliminated by complacency….but there is still time to shake yourself free & stand up to fight! Right now, there is a choice to make…you will either make the choice for good or evil. Which do you think is best for this nation? Only you can decide for yourself!

For in the political sector, there is only these choices…good or evil. You might not see this, but to most people this is plain to see. This election is of dire importance to My people, as well as the entire world…for this election will set the stage for the future of all mankind. You have already seen evil come in like a flood over the past 8 years & if this election goes they way that evil desires, the next 4 years will destroy everything that My people have stood for & this world will quickly devolve to where it was when I destroyed the world with the flood…but this time I will destroy the world with fire. Hear Me, My people…you must rise up & be a voice against the evil while you still have time.

Wake up, my people…before it is too late! For these people who will say that I told them “this will happen, or that”, are only understanding a portion of what they have seen. Does not My word say that “you know in part & prophesy in part”? So, then, what these have “seen” are not the full picture of what will come. How is it that so many do not understand that when I show such things, I am giving a “warning” of what will come? This does NOT necessarily mean that these things must come to pass…for with each of these warnings, I always tell My servants for My people to “pray”. Why would I tell My people to pray, if the things were going to happen & there was nothing they could do to stop them?

I show these things so My people can pray against them, so they could be averted & avoided! So, why is there so much confusion regarding these things…why all the differing stories? These are all scenarios that can play out, if My people do not rise up & take a stand against evil. It is time for My people to stop playing games & start being the light they are called to be. The world you live in should be overtaken by My word & light, but instead, My people hide in their comfortable little boxes of worship, ignoring what goes on outside. And this is what has made the world the way it now is! My people must go outside into the marketplace & begin to shine My light again, while there is still time to do so!

It is time for you to “go into all the world & preach the gospel to every creature”. Whether you know this or not, this includes the political world. Who told you to leave there & stop being a voice against evil? For this complacency began to take hold on My people when they allowed “murdering unborn babies” to become the law of the land. Now, the sanctity of marriage has been defiled & all manner of evil has begun to be set loose because of complacency! What is it going to take to get you out of your place of comfort? I love you, My children…hear Me & obey! You must rise up out of your “pews”, go outside & begin to change the world with My love, before it is too late, says the Lord”.

END PROPHETIC WORD

This time we are living in is extremely crucial! May the Lord truly have His way in us, His people.
May we move towards Him in true humility, so we will allow Him to speak to & work deep within our hearts!
May He awaken our hearts out of complacency, so we may begin to shine as His true light in this world!

In His great love & mercy,
Pastors Mark & Julie Moore

Arise, Shine!

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

The Lord has been speaking to me more concerning the state of the majority of the churches that exists all throughout the world today. While there are pockets of believers that truly love Him & are truly submitted to His will, a great majority know nothing of what it means to be His. God is speaking to His people to shake themselves free from the darkness that is overtaking the church. Please prayerfully read the following prophetic word from the Lord & allow Him to minister to your heart.

BEGIN PROPHETIC WORD

“My people…I come to you this day to bring hope…I to you this day to bring encouragement. I come with the sword of truth…I come in the everlasting love that I have for each of you. Many of you truly know what time it is…many of you are aware, but are not acquiescing with Me in the ways that I want you to. For many of you have been compromised by the spirit that exists in the church & that spirit is not of Me. You have heard Me say that a spirit of compromise & complacency has taken hold of many…but most do not know that they are also taken hold of by the same things. Today I come to give you light, so that you may arise & shine in this last day & be the church that I have called you to be…in Me.

For surely you know that My word says “arise, shine, for your light has come & the glory of the Lord is risen upon you”…but to most, this is only a statement from My word & has no real meaning or impact on My people. It is more a thing of hoping for…it is more a thing that may someday come…but I say, it is a living reality right now…for now is the time for My people to rise up & be who I have called them to be. To some, this word may cause puzzling, because to you, you are living in My will, as you have perceived it to be…but even then, you have been limited by this wave of compromise & complacency. For you know that My light dispels darkness…for darkness cannot overtake My light, but darkness will flee.

You are called to BE the light of the world, for a city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. But, most do not know of this. Have I not said that no man when he has lighted a candle, places it under a bushel? But, this is exactly what My people are doing…My people will mostly hide in their churches, where few may see My light, rather than going into all the world to preach the gospel to every creature. Yes, these will praise & worship Me while inside the 4 walls of the church…they will speak all about Me there…but when they leave, they leave the great majority of their Christian testimony there inside the building. This should not be so…for I am with you where ever you go…you must let your light shine!

Look in My word…is this not the way that I lived? For the great majority of miracles & healings…the great majority of Me impacting people was not done within the 4 walls of the church building…they were done outside in the world. There were done in the fields & mountains…they were done in the streets of the marketplace…they were done where ever I would go. This is how My people are suppose to be…they are suppose to be like ME. For even prophetic words & words of knowledge came more from My lips outside, than they did within the building…for it is My desire to reach a lost & dying world…most of these will never enter the building…they must be reached from outside.

Hear Me, My people as My heart cries out for you…sense the love in which I speak to you. For I come as a Father to give My people wisdom & instruction for this last day. This is not the time to “go to church & play church”…this is the time to rise up & be who you are called to be…you are called to be the light of the world. For if My people do not begin to arise & shine, soon, before long it will be too late & many will have to go into hiding. All you have is NOW…for now is the time. For tomorrow may never be…there is no guarantee of tomorrow…all you have is today. So, today, if you will hear My voice, you must stop from hardening your heart…respond to My heart of love while you still can.

To those who would resist My words, do not stand in pride, thinking that this word does not include you, for it is for all of My people, no matter who you are. Do not think that just because you can minister the things of My Spirit within the walls of a building, that you are exempt from this word…for I do not want you to fall. I need you to see that your ability to minister in church is done solely in a protected environment. What is going to happen when you are thrust out of the building & its safe environment…how will you “minister” then, when you are found standing “outside”? My people need to shake themselves free from the complacency & compromise gripping the church now.

My people need to exercise themselves unto “godliness”…you are to BE like Me. Shake yourselves free from the “comfortable little boxes” that exist…which is called “church” & begin to go outside, into the world & bring change! What did I ordain the church to do? I gave some, apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors & teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, so the saints could do the work of the ministry…for the edifying of the body of Christ. The 4 walls of the church exists entirely for this purpose! So that My people will be trained up in the things of God & then go outside & change the world. Why are not My people going outside & doing what I have called the church to do?

A religious spirit has afflicted My people, to keep them from doing what I desire them to do…for even many of My prophets & apostles have come under this spell & are speaking words of comfort, instructing them to continue as they are & that all is fine. But, all is not fine…for My people are liken unto the frog that is on top of a hot stove, being lulled into sleep, unto their death. My people need to shake themselves free from this spirit & arise while they still can…it is time to arise, shine…for your light has come…for the glory of the Lord is to rise upon you! Hear Me, My people…seek Me, allow Me to wash & cleanse you from this contaminating spirit…seek Me & I will turn things around, says the Lord”.

END PROPHETIC WORD

We are indeed living in exciting, as well as troubling times! As we look at the condition of the world, we must recognize that we, as the light of the world are responsible for the world’s condition. God’s people do not see this & do not even remember that the church “used” to be involved in everything outside of the church. Christian parents were heavily involved in PTA & the School boards…Christians were involved in city councils & local govt. Christians made an impact everywhere they went, because they were “shining the light of God”. BUT, somehow, God’s people have lost their impact…somehow we are not shining our light, as we used to. Somehow, we have become complacent & compromised, but do not even see it!

Jesus said “because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold”. He was not talking about people in the world…He was speaking of His people, for only His people have the AGAPE love being spoken of here. He was speaking of His people being compromised by increasing iniquity, so that these “roots” of sin would destroy the growth of love in their lives. It is evident by the lack of God’s people influencing the outside world, that God’s love has truly grown cold. It is time for God’s people to shake themselves free from this paralyzing spirit & trim their wicks so that their light will shine brightly! Trimming the wick speaks of more than just adjusting ones doctrines…it also speaks of cleaning out anything that would keep our wick from burning bright! Once we have done this, we need to begin to go outside & begin to shine our light in the world.

There is still time for God’s people to shine…yes, cities can be changed! It is a fact that when God’s people get together & begin to “shine” the love & truth of God, they make an impact on the outside…entire regions are radically changed…crime rates diminish…bars close down, etc….this is what history shows! It is all up to God’s people to make a difference! The church can continue forward on its present path & will see severe persecution & trauma ahead. Many will fall away…many more than have already…because Christians are not where God wants them to be or doing what God called them to do. The church is not a “religious social club” of activities or programs…it is suppose to be a venue for activating the saints, to DO the work of the ministry.

The apostles did the work of the ministry…the early church did the work of the ministry. The work of the ministry is to “go into all the world & preach the gospel to every creature”. But, somehow the church has lost its savor…it has become addicted to serving “self”…it no longer hears the cry of the Spirit to save souls. The sad truth is, most Christians have not even led ONE person to a saving knowledge of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Most feel that is the pastor’s job…or the missionary’s job. God’s people can never forget that THIS is ALL of our jobs…it is what He has saved us to do! God says that EVERYTHING reproduces after its own kind! Sheep beget sheep…we are saved, so we can actively be used of God to save others!

We have had a sign hung up above our front door at home for over 20 years…it reads, “you are now entering the mission field”. It is a reminder that once we go out doors, we have entered the mission field. The truth is, we are either a missionary, or a mission field…we either need ministry of we will minister to others. Which do we want to be? Many people say that they want to be like HIM…will those same people do as Jesus did? Please pray & ask the Lord to use you for His glory…outside of the 4 walls…outside where He ministered. Jesus ministered to the woman at the well…He ministered to Zaccheus, who was up in the tree…He ministered to the impotent man at the Pool of Siloam…Jesus ministered where ever He went.

Let’s begin to actively take our place in shining the light of God to those we come into contact with everyday…everywhere we go, we can be a vessel of His love!

May the Lord have His way in each of our lives, as we daily seek to please Him!

Love & blessings,
Pastors Mark & Julie Moore
