About 4 or 5 years ago, the Lord brought forth a word through several prophets on the same weekend; and from that point until now, I have observed that the Lord is still continuing to bring forth this same message through prophesies and other prophets; and that word was, “My people are not prepared for my coming”. The most amazing thing about this word is that so many think that they are prepared for his coming. Speaking only for myself, I have found that most every time that I have thought that I was in agreement with the Lord on something, then his Spirit would move upon me to show me that I was not in that place that I was sure that I was in.
Who is and who is not prepared for his coming? How long do have to get prepared? When I inquired of the Lord and asked him to show me how should I get prepared, he led me to that which is written in Proverbs 16:1 “The preparation of the heart and the answer of the tongue are from the Lord.” It was with this word that the Lord then instructed me to just give him the permission and ask him to do this work in me, and he would prepare my heart for his coming. Simple enough; for when the Lord does a work, it is established forever. How much better could it be than to be able to trust the Lord to do this work for me? Many presume that the Lord will do his work without us having to ask for him to do it, but these are they who do not know the meekness of the Lord, that he will do nothing unless we ask of him; for it is as it is written, “You have not because you ask not”. Simply put, those who will not be ready for his coming did not ask the Lord to prepare them.
Still, I had a lot of questions about his coming? Which coming is the Lord speaking of when he says that his people are not prepared for? Is it when he comes in the clouds, or when he comes to be glorified in his saints, or when comes riding on his white horse in robe dipped in blood?
Well, this word actually addresses a coming of the Lord that I had not even considered before; and it also reveals that those who are ready for the Lord to come in this manner, they are surely prepared for the Lord to come in any manner that he wants to come. Who wants to be found numbered in that part of the church that is going to be found as the five foolish virgins who were not prepared themselves? It is for this reason that I am so thankful for all these words that our loving Father sends to us; wise instructions that will help ensure that those who receive them will be well prepared for his coming; for I for one believe that our heavenly Father is well able to do that which he says that he is able to do, to prepare our hearts and minds for his coming.
Much blessings and love be multiplied unto you in Christ Jesus,
The Vision of the Two Globes
(Page 1 of 2)
In a vision, I saw two of those little clear glass round globes that can usually be bought in gift shops; the little globes that usually see inside a scene that displays a cute little house, a white picket fence around it, a couple of trees, and snow on the ground. These globes were sitting side by side, and they both appeared identical in appearance. As I began to observe these two globes, a hand suddenly appeared and picked up one of them, shook it up hard several times, and then placed it back down in its original place. I then watched the scene inside as these little snow flakes gently and softly settled back down on the roof of the house and the yard. What a wonderful and peaceable scene it was.
I then watched as this same hand then picked up the second globe, shook it up real hard, and then place it back down also. This was where the second globe lost any similarity of being like the first little globe; for what happened inside this globe after it was shaken had no resemblance at all of that which had occurred inside the first globe. Instead of peaceful snow gently falling, I saw what appeared like an extremely violent thunderstorm taking place on the inside of this second globe. There was as strong wind, lightning and thunder that accompanied this storm. Instead of gentle snow flakes coming down, there was what appeared like a continuous swirling wind, not quite as powerful as a tornado that circled the house. This wind was driving a rain that seemed to consist of this thick muddy water; and it relentlessly pounded this little house. I was amazed at the contrast of the storms that I had just seen.
I then asked the Lord to explain what these two globes represented. The Lord then said, "The two globes that you see represent my church; for it is written "In every house there are both vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor". The first globe that you saw represents the vessels of honor while the second globe represents the vessels of dishonor. The vessels of honor are those who have heard my words and believed them, while the vessels of dishonor are those who have make light of my counsels and despise my instruction. It is now that day; the Day of the Lord, the day that I come to shake every man's world. Those vessels of honor who have judged themselves, they shall be as troubled of this day like I was troubled when the disciples and I got caught in that terrible storm. Throughout that storm, I slept as peaceable as a child who feels all safe and secure during a gentle snow storm. But it was not so with my disciples; for their minds were as the troubled sea, with their thoughts continuously being tossed to and fro between their fears, their doubts, their hopelessness, their confusion, and their unbelief. As it was with my disciples during this storm, so shall it be with world and with those vessels of dishonor that shall be judged with the world. This is that day that men's hearts shall be failing them for fear at looking on those things which are coming on the earth.
II Timothy 2:19-21 "Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure having this seal: "The Lord knows them that are his". And let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor and some to dishonor. If a man will therefore purge himself from these (his iniquities), then he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."
Hebrews 12:25-28 "See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they did not escape who refused him that spoke on earth, then how much more shall we not escape if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth? But now he has promised saying, "Yet once more I shake not the earth (body) only, but also heaven (mind). And this word yet once more signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear."
Isaiah 13:10-13 "For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
Mark 4:37-40 "And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full of water. And Jesus was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awoke him, and said to him, "Master, do you not care that we are perishing?" And he arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still". And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And then Jesus said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?"
I am coming to shake my church; and when I do, the vessels of honor will respond to my shaking in the same manner that I responded to that storm at sea, as well as how that first globe responded to my shaking, in peace and quietness. It shall not be so with the vessels of dishonor, those of my people who have refused to judge themselves; for my word has instructed each one of you that if you refuse to judge yourselves, then shall you be judged with this world. I am coming to shake the world, and when I do, the vessels of dishonor will respond in the same manner as the world responds because they have not judged themselves to be corrected of the world that continues to rule in their heart and mind. When I shake their world, fear confusion, uncertainty, doubts, and shall toss them to and fro as the storm that battered the little house that was in the second globe. You saw how both of these little globes appeared identical as long as they were left alone; that is, they appeared the same until adversity and trouble arose that shook their world. The vessels of honor, they shall respond to my shaking in a sound mind; a mind that is without any fears, or uncertainty, or worry, or hopelessness, or stress, or confusion, or doubts, or unbelief. When all goes well, the vessels of dishonor appear to be as the vessels of honor, having a sound mind, but that is before the storm comes; for in the Day of the Lord, all that which a man has trusted in shall be revealed.
I Corinthians 11:31-32 "For if we would judge ourselves, then we should not be judged; for when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord so that we should not be condemned with the world."
Malachi 4:1-2 "For, behold, the Day comes that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the Day that comes shall burn them up", says the Lord of hosts, "so that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But to you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth and grow up as calves of the stall."
Luke 21:25-26 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring, and men's hearts failing them for fear for looking at those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
Isaiah 13:6-13 "Howl ye; for the Day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint and every man's heart shall melt; and they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them and they shall be in pain as a woman that is in travail. They shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the Day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
Joel 3:13-16 "Put you in the sickle for the harvest is ripe. Come, get down; for the press is full and the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes and multitudes in the valley of decision for the Day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel."
Every man is going to respond to my shaking according to the wisdom that is in him. Did you see how the first globe responded to my shaking; peaceably and as quiet as the gentle snow fall? The wisdom that comes from above is more pure than snow and it is then peaceable, gentle, and full of good fruits; and the fruit of my wisdom is a sound mind that does not become fearful or troubled when its world is shaken because there is only peace in my wisdom. It is during the time that I shake the heavens and the earth that you will be able to see clearly the fruits of the wisdom that is in a man; whether it be the wisdom of God or the wisdom that is of this world. Those whose wisdom is of this world will always respond foolishly because when the storms of adversity and trouble come, when situations and circumstances arise that go beyond the limitations and boundaries of man's power and control, then comes forth fruits of this world's wisdom which are seen in fear, worry, frustration, anxiety, anger, doubts, hatred, unbelief, confusion, depression, stress, evil suspicions, and panic. Those who have sought for, and obtained, and have been corrected by my wisdom, they shall respond always respond peaceably and quietly assured in their confidence and faith in me because that is the nature of my wisdom. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit and an evil tree shall not be able to bring forth good fruit.
James 3:14-18 "If you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, then do not glory; and lie not against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish; for where envying and strife are, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace."
Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people are foolish; they have not known me. They are senseless children and they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge."
I Corinthians 3:19 "The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."
I am coming. The vessels of honor are mine; those precious vessels that have surrendered their hearts and minds unto me. I am coming for those who have allowed for me to correct them with my wisdom. I am the wisdom of God. I am the Prince of Peace. I am the peace of God that rules in the hearts and minds of those who have wisdom of God dwelling in their temple. I am the peaceable fruit of righteousness that dwells in those who have been transformed in their correction. When the peace of God rules, I rule; and where I rule, Father rules also. Have I not said that those who love me, they will keep my words, and my Father and I will come and make our abode with him? So then, when the peace of God rules, there are no circumstances or situations that can arise in this world that are able to overthrow my wisdom, lest the kingdom of God fall into the Darkness. It is for this reason that when I shake the world of the vessels of honor, they shall not see any great trouble; for my shaking will be no more to them than that great storm was that came up when I was asleep in the boat.
Malachi 3:16-17 "Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine", says the Lord of hosts, "in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him."
Ps 111:10 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…."
Romans 12:2 "And do not be conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Romans 8:6 "…to be spiritually minded is life and peace."
John 14:23-24 "Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."
It shall not be so when I shake the world of the wicked and the uncorrected; the world of those who sought to save their lives in this world rather than to sacrifice unto the Lord the wisdom that is of this world. So then, when I shake their world, the wisdom of this world, that which they trusted in and esteemed to be their own, shall then dictate to them how they should respond. Shall it be said that a man is of a sound mind that responds to the circumstances and situations that arise in his life with confusion, anxiety, and paranoia? Those who refused to take up their cross to crucify unto themselves this world's wisdom shall then live unto the torments that come forth out of this wickedness and perversion. I have sent messenger after messenger to tell my people that they are not prepared for my coming; that is, they are not prepared when I come to shake their world. These have might light of the instructions of my words and chosen to follow after the vain and lifeless doctrines of men; doctrines that do not even allow for me to destroy the wisdom of this world, which is the enmity of the carnal mind. O, the trouble that awaits the foolish who have chosen the wisdom and the doctrines that have allowed for them to make themselves to be lord and god over their own Christianity. How shall they stand when I come to shake their world? The wise shall be sealed in peace while the foolish shall be filled with the wickedness of fear and confusion. I am coming.
Malachi 3:2 "But who can endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears?"…
Ezekiel 13:3-6 "Thus says the Lord God, "Woe to the foolish prophets that follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! O Israel (the church), your prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. You have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord (when the Lord comes to destroy the enmity of the carnal mind that is not subject to him (II Cor.10:3-7). They have seen vanity and lying divination saying, "The Lord says": and the Lord has not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word."
Ephesians 6:10-13 "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil; for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (fears, doubts, confusion, pride, and unbelief). Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand."
Proverbs 24:5 "A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increases strength."
Isaiah 33:6 "And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times and the strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure."
I am coming. Who is that wise servant who has heard my words and believed them? Who has prepared himself for my coming? Whose house shall stand when I appear? Who is that wise and faithful man who believed the counsel of my words and set his heart to seek for those treasures that are in heaven? Who has set his affection on the spiritual gifts and spiritual blessings that come only from above? I know who they are because their prayers are before me. They have asked and I have freely given to them. Has not my word declared that my wisdom, the wisdom that comes from above, is to be more desired than all of the riches, all of the wealth, all of the fame, all of the money, and all of the treasures of this world? Has not my word said, "Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore get wisdom…"? Only a fool does not understand the priceless value of my wisdom; the same wisdom that is so freely and liberally given to those who seek and ask for her. Can it be anymore simple than that? Who then is that foolish and wicked servant who has sown his hopes in the wisdom of this world that desires only to have those riches and treasures that are of this world? When men's hearts begin to fail them for fear and confusion, what price then would a man pay to have sound mind full of peace?
Proverbs 4:7-8 "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote you. She shall bring you to honor when you do embrace her."
Luke 12:42-44 "And the Lord said, "Who then is that faithful and wise steward whom his Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord shall find so doing when he shall come. Of a truth I say to you, that he will make him ruler over all that he has."
Matthew 6:19-21 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where neither moth and rust do corrupt and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust do corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
Colossians 3:1-6 "If you then are risen with Christ, then seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above and not on things on the earth. For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God; and when Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory. Therefore mortify your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience…. 14-15 And above all things put on love, which is the bond of perfection; and let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful."
James 3:17 "The wisdom from above is…."
Colossians 2:3 "In whom (Father & Christ) are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
Romans 11:33-34 "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments (decisions; purposes), and his ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Proverbs 8:17-21 (The wisdom of God is still speaking from verse 12) "I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment so that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."
Proverbs 4:7-9 "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding. Exalt her and she shall promote you. She shall bring you to honor when you embrace her. She shall give to your head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to you."
Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who thought it not robbery to be equal with God."
Proverbs 2:6 "For the Lord gives wisdom; out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding."
Consider this: There was a day when all the hearts of all the righteous and mighty men of Israel failed them for fear at looking that that which had come upon them; the day that Goliath appeared before the armies of Israel to defy God and to challenge any Hebrew man to come out and fight against him. Whose world did Goliath shake? Did he not shake King Saul's world? Did he not also shake the world of priests and the righteous men of Israel? Was not each soldier shaken in his heart and his mind? How could this be so? How could one man cause the hearts of so many to faint in fear and to forget that their God was the only true God, the Creator and Maker of all things? Had I forsaken Israel? Did I quit being the God of Israel because Goliath caused all the hearts of my people to faint and to shake with fear? Was it I that had forgotten my people or was it that my people that had forgotten me? Where was their belief, their trust, their loyalty, and their faith towards me? Was I not still their Lord, their God, and their Savior? Am I a God whose heart faints at the sight of giants or that fails before any of the powers of Darkness? Am I a God that would leave and forsake my people in the times of adversity or trouble? Now I ask you to consider this: Was it Goliath that caused my people to tremble and shake, or was it the wisdom that was in them that dictated to each man in Israel that they should cower before their fears. Remember that I have said unto you that each man always responds to the situations and the circumstances that arise in his life according to the manner of wisdom that is in him.
1 Samuel 17:4-11 "And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span (almost 10 feet). And he had a helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was 5000 shekels of brass. And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed 600 shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel and said to them, "Why are you come out to set your battle in array? Am I not a Philistine, and you servants to Saul? Choose you a man among you, and let him come down to me. If he be able to fight with me, and kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall you will be our servants, and serve us. And the Philistine said, "I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together." When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid."
It the wisdom of this world that deceives men into believing that are able to take control over their lives, to be their own lord and god; even deceiving them into believing that they are able to make themselves to be lord and god over their own Christianity. The wisdom of this world is that which gives power, and strength, and life to all pride, to all fear, to all confusion, to all anger, to all doubts, to all anxiety, to all hatred, to all stress, to all bitterness, to all anger, to all unbelief, to all frustration, to depression, to all panic, and to all worry when circumstances and situations arise that go beyond the abilities and control of men. She, the wisdom of this world, is the source of the wickedness and the foolishness that arises in the hearts of my people that tempts them to forget their God, working to keep them from calling upon the name of their God in the time of the times of adversity and trouble. The wisdom of this world labors relentlessly through carnal imaginations to bring forth thoughts that hinder my people from drawing near to me.
Isaiah 47:10 "For you have trusted in your wickedness and you have said, "None see me". Your wisdom and your knowledge has perverted you and you have said in your heart, "I am, and there is none else beside me". Therefore shall evil come upon you and you shall not know from where it rises: and trouble shall fall upon you and you shall not be able to put it off. Desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know."
I Corinthians 3:19 "The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."
Isaiah 29:13,14 "Wherefore the Lord said, "Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth and with their lips they do honor me, but they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear towards me is taught by the precept of men; therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid (that is, if you give God the permission to do so)"
But who is it asks the Lord God to do this wonderful and mighty work so as to allow their hearts to draw closer and closer unto God? We have not because we ask not!
Psalm 34:4 "I sought the Lord and he heard me, and delivered from all my fears."
Psalm 34:6 "This poor man (poor in Spirit) cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles."
Romans 10:13 "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
O, how all these mighty men in Israel thought within themselves that they were so strong and righteous in their faith; but they were blind to see that there strength and their faith stood in the wisdom of this world, and not in the power of God. Then when Goliath appeared, this wisdom then dictated to them that they should bow their hearts to cower in fear and dread. O, what a mighty storm of fears and confusion their wisdom stirred up in the imagination of their thoughts; the same storm that arose that troubled the hearts of the 10 spies whose hearts fainted when they also saw giants inhabiting the land that God had promised to his people Israel. She it is, this whorish wisdom of this world that directs the faithless to respond in such a cowardly and foolish manner before men and before God. Remember Peter, how he also thought within himself that he was such a mighty man of God, that he thought within himself that he had the faith in himself that would gladly go to prison for my name's sake and that he was even willing to die for me? But before the cock crowed the very next morning, his faith had failed him. As it was with the 10 spies and the armies of Israel, also was it with Peter. O, the deceitfulness and the wickedness that is dictated to my people by the wisdom of this world.
I Corinthians 2:3 "And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with the enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power so that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."
II Corinthians 12:9-10 "And he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then (after he calls out on the name of the Lord) am I strong."
Numbers 13:30-33 "And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, "Let us go up at once and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it." But the (10) men that went up with him said, "We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we." And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel saying, "The land, through which we have gone to search, it is a land that eats up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
Luke 22:33-34 "And Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, I am ready to go with you, both into prison and to death". But Jesus said, "I tell you Peter that the cock shall not crow this day before you shall deny three times that you know me."
None of these men were able to understand at that time their faith was not the true faith but the faith that stands in the wisdom and power of men; that illusion of faith that proves itself by the righteous works and good intentions that are performed according to the strengths and abilities of men rather than of God. This faith that stands in the wisdom of this world is powerless to overcome the fears that cause the hearts of my people to faint in the day of adversity and trouble because it bows before the fears rather than calling on the name of the Lord. The wisdom of this world tempts my people to compare and measure their own abilities and strengths against the abilities and the strengths of others rather than to compare and measure them against the unlimited abilities and greatness of God's strength. The wisdom of this deceives many into believing that they are great men of God so as to keep them seeking to know the greatness of God into their lives. Not only did Peter flee when his faith failed, but so did the rest of the apostles flee when their faith also failed them because of the same fears after they saw their Shepherd betrayed and led away captive. And so shall it be in the days ahead when I shake each man's world, to try every man's heart according to the work of the wisdom that is in him. Many hearts of those who think within themselves that shall be able stand in their own faith shall fail them because of the wisdom of this world that is within them; and just like Peter, they will even deny that they know me. By the wisdom of this world, my own people did not believe on me; they did not know me, they did not receive me, they did not stand with me, they did not trust me, nor did they remember any of the counsel of my words; and by the deceitfulness of their wisdom, they did reject me, they did mock me, they did persecute me, and they did crucify me.
I Corinthians 10:12 "Therefore let him who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall."
Ephesians 6:10 "Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might."
I Corinthians 2:7,8 "But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world unto our glory; which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory."
1 Corinthians 1:21 (AMP) "For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him)."
Luke 21:25-26 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring, and men's hearts failing them for fear for looking at those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
1 Samuel 12:16 "Now therefore stand and see this great thing which the Lord will do before your eyes."
Jeremiah 33:3 "Call upon me and I will answer you, and I will show you great and mighty things that you do not know."
Many years ago, when the Lord began to correct me of my faith and my wisdom, he spoke to me and said, "Mitt, I am not going to make you great in eyes, but I am going to become great in your sight." I immediately became excited because I knew that the only way it would be possible for the Lord to become great and mighty in my eyes was if he did great and mighty things for me; and thanks be to God, he has, and still is. Sadly, many will never come to know him who is great and mighty because they choose to satisfy their own desires to make themselves to be great and mighty.
1 Samuel 15:17-18 So Samuel said to Saul, "When you were little in your own eyes, were you not head of the tribes of Israel? And did not the Lord anoint you to be king over Israel?
Even Jesus Christ himself said in John 5:30 "I can, of myself, do nothing…"; and when Paul humbled himself under the mighty hand of God, he said in Philippians 2:13 "I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me."
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man brings a snare: but whoso puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
I always have a remnant, a people who I have chosen because they desire to know me; a people who refuse to bow the knee of their hearts to allow themselves to be dictated to by the wisdom of this world. I have always had a Joshua, or a Caleb, or a David, or a Mary Magdalene; a remnant that have a different spirit within them, the spirit of wisdom that comes from above. Do you think that it is possible for the wisdom of God to surrender itself to anything other than God? Has not Father made me to be wisdom for you? I am not fearful of any circumstance or situation that arises in this world, for I have overcome the world and the wisdom that rules it. I am sovereign over all; and neither is there any of my remnant that is fearful because they have my wisdom in them; the wisdom that knows that I am sovereign over all situations and circumstances. My wisdom knows no fear or dread. My wisdom knows no worry or anxiety. My wisdom knows no hopelessness or doubts. My wisdom is strength and might; a boldness that never cowers in fear at any of the things that are seen in this world. My wisdom trusts only in Father. My wisdom loves Father. My wisdom believes only the counsels of my Father's words. My wisdom only bows to Father. My wisdom is only faithful and loyal to Father. My wisdom will only follow Father's voice. Father has made me to be his gift unto all who have me. My chosen are those who have a different wisdom in them than those who are this world; a wisdom that does not think to betray me; or to forget me, or to depart from me, or to go awhoring from the counsels of my words, or to flee from me in fear; for I am the wisdom of God that redeems you from the wisdom of this world. I am the loving spirit that will casts out all of your fears. I am the gift of God; and I am freely and liberally given to all who ask for me. I am the Prince of Peace, and all who have me within shall have peace at all times, even when their world is shaken.
Numbers 14:24-25 "But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.
Psalm 51:6 "Behold, you desire truth (Jesus: John 14:6) in the inward parts; and in the hidden part you shall make me to know wisdom (Jesus: I Cor.1:30)."
I Corinthians 1:30 "But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who God has made unto us wisdom…"
Psalm 23:4 "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because you (the wisdom of God) are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me."
Zephaniah 3:13 "The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and nothing shall make them afraid."
Every heart that has my wisdom hidden in the treasury of its heart is the heart that is beautiful in Father's eyes; for my wisdom focuses (looks) only on Father's faithfulness, on Father's abilities, on Father's strength, on Father's might, on Father's love, and on Father's power. My wisdom is the wisdom of God; and the wisdom of God is my wisdom. I am the wisdom that knows that God alone is sovereign in power over all principalities and powers, over all sins and iniquities, over all sicknesses and diseases, over all governments and kingdoms, over all spirits and all flesh, over all circumstances and situations, over the light and the darkness, and over all life and death. Who or what shall make me afraid? Those who have my wisdom have the wisdom of God; and they are able to walk through the valley of the shadow of death without any fear as to what they might see. My remnant are a peculiar people, a people who do not fear the fears or dread the dreads as those do who are oppressed by the wisdom of this world. My wisdom is the very breath of the power of God; the breath that gives life. I am the wisdom from which all things were created; and that which creates is never fearful of that which has been created.
