Sometimes God speak to me personally and gives me an oracle only for myself but then sometimes to share with others too- hope it speaks to you as it has me. God bless.
“If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God...” 1 Peter 4:11
“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge”... no, not knowledge of the things of this world or the latest news or information that is occurring. My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge of Me... of knowing Me, the God they claim to know. For had they sought Me, had they yearned for Me alone, had they prayed fervently as the righteous do, they would have found Me... and they would have known my ways, felt My presence, heard My voice and seen My face. They would have knowledge of the Holy... knowledge of who I am and in such knowledge, they would be like the children of Issachar in My Word, “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do...” The only way you will be able to “discern the times” and “know what to do” is by My Word and My Spirit, not by “leaning on your own understanding”. The world's information is scrambled with great deception and darkness woven all throughout it. You will only grow desperate, confused, paranoid and panicky if all you seek is knowledge of these end time events.
Many of My people spend hours upon hours everyday scouring the internet or news headlines to make sense of all that is happening in the world. They are weighed down by the many cares of this world, by an insatiable appetite for more and more knowledge of events and the interpretation of events of this age... but they have neglected the “weightier matters”... they have neglected to truly seek My face, to know Me and My will for their lives...
How can you rightly discern the times or gain spiritual bearings if you are only looking to the world to comfort and pacify your anxieties in this present time and to feed your soul with it's unending diet of bad news and demonic agendas which are all coming to fruition? Do you truly think you will grow one inch in stature or spiritual insight by feasting on an all-you-can-eat-buffet of carnal news and entertainments? A constant barrage of worldly wisdom or the sparkle of vanity fair does nothing for your soul but only rot it to it's core.
You must partake of My manna sent from Heaven every day to satisfy your soul, to bring moisture to your dry spirit then to quench you with a thirsty spirit- yes, I desire to create even a greater thirst and hunger for righteousness within you. The cares of this world will only choke out what I want to do in you.
No, you will have none of My Kingdom by seeking after the fallen ones of this earthly realm.
I did not tell the disciples at Pentecost to scour the latest news and find out what the Roman Empire is doing with the all the other empires of the age. I told them “to tarry, to wait, to seek out My Spirit until they were endued with power from on high”. The devil makes you think that you need to be up to date and saturated with worldly news or constantly bogged down with how to prepare for hard times or worldly crises as if this knowledge alone will save you from the last day turmoil coming upon the earth.
Many of My people are spending much time preparing for paranoid scenarios and dark brooding fantasies in their minds that may never happen or even if they do happen, they are trusting in the “arm of flesh”, their stockpile of food, their carnal weapons of warfare, their “prepper skills” to save them from eventual distress, peril or even death. They have preoccupied themselves with storing up wealth and goods”, “building bigger barns”, obsessed with self preservation and maintaining their comforts and conveniences of this life. The very cares of this world which I warned against! But My Words still ring true, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”
It is no sin to stay updated on what is happening around you. I do not fault My People for searching out matters which have real world consequences and making some preparation. This is wisdom. As My word says, “A prudent man foresees evil coming and prepares himself but the foolish disregard the danger and is destroyed because of it.” It's okay to make provision and like Joseph, to prepare during years of plenty for years of drought and famine. However, being so consumed in it, and stressed, anxious and worried is unbelief in My faithfulness to you. I warned you ahead of time about the end times and that this world was going to fall apart and pass away. You should be looking to Me, not in the world's provisions to save you.
How is it that you can be so consumed on physical preparation while neglecting spiritual preparation?
Do you not know that the weapons of your warfare are not carnal? That your fight or struggle is not against physical things or of the flesh? How is it that a good soldier endures hardness but you instead seek to pamper your life with temporal elements that perish with the using? You are so consumed in saving your life, to making sure you are plush and padded for what hell may come. Why? Did I call you to be so self absorbed and focused on your own perceived needs? To respond like the world does and heap to yourself fleshly provisions and the fleeting silver and gold of this world? Did I not speak through My servant Ezekiel, “‘They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling.”
What is your life? Why are you so bent on preserving it in this world? Lack of essentials and even death should never be such an obsessive concern for those who trust Me and know that I am always faithful. No matter what you do and how much you prepare, you can not be certain it will preserve you or that you will not lose it in this evil age of injustice.
Store up for yourselves true riches and rewards. Give your life away. Devote your time to Me and to My kingdom, to saving the lost, to feeding the hungry , to bringing good news to those trodden down by sin and suffering, discipling My people with truth.
Your obsessions to prepare extravagantly show me that you have very little faith in the God of miracles. Am I not the God who will provide for My sons and daughters? You act like you must store up much provision as if I will somehow forget My Words to you, ““Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storehouse or barn; yet God feeds them. How much more valuable you are than the birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? So if you cannot do such a small thing, why do you worry about the rest? Consider how the lilies grow: They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory was adorned like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not be concerned about what you will eat or drink. Do not worry about it. For the Gentiles of the world strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added unto you.”
Children never worry about food or clothing if they have a good father, so why would you worry, do you not believe you have a Good Father?
Don't you understand what is at stake if you continue to neglect the incredible spiritual preparation that needs to take place in your soul for the coming darkness?
You need to store up My food, the Word of God which as Job says, “needs to be esteemed more than your necessary food.” My Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. You need to prepare for spiritual warfare against the unseen dark forces that can only be conquered by spiritual authority from obedience and submission to My Spirit. Neglecting prayer is neglecting your very breath and lifeline to Me! You need to be strong, bold and courageous for the Kingdom of God not for the entanglements of this world!
Be consumed in doing My Will, which is “your sanctification” and the sanctification of others. Time is short. I have many people I want to reach with My love through you! I need you to quit listening to fear and doubt or be obsessed with “your needs” and to believe totally in Me! I am your Savior. I know what you need even before you know it! And what you need now is not another can of beans or another gallon of gas or another dollar to spend upon your lusts and overflow. You need to fall upon your face and seek Mine! You need to not worry about tomorrow for you only live in the now. I have your future, remember? “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a FUTURE and a HOPE.”
And what if you are stripped down to nothing and “suffer the loss of all things”? If you have Me, you have everything you need! No, I did not promise you a red carpet ride with every plush comfort in this life. As a matter of fact, I told you plainly, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. For in the world YOU WILL HAVE TRIBULATION; but be of good cheer, (not fear) I have overcome the world.” You must trust me in the storms. You must stand strong in the fire that comes. I will be with you!
Do not be like Martha burdened about with many things, doing, preparing and frenzied about the cares of this world. Instead, be like Mary who sat at My feet. She chose the good part. She chose to learn of Me, to rest in My peace. This is where true strength, true skill, true preparation comes from. If you truly seek My face and sit at My feet and hear My Words, you will be prepared more than all the survivalist preppers in the world, no matter what happens.
I will lead you with My Spirit and all will come together and all will be well with your soul in the end. “My yoke is easy, My burden is light”, but if you do not seek Me, if you do not trust Me, the world will overwhelm you, disappoint you and it will crush you down and keep you from entering that beautiful place of rest, peace and providence that I have for you.
Dwell with Me always, dwell on My promises and faithfulness. Do you really want to prepare to survive the end of the world? Then “take up your cross and die to self”. Be a living sacrifice for Me.
Look up for your redemption draws near. The future is not bleak or foreboding at all! Be of good cheer, the end of this fallen, broken suffering world is truly, only the launch of the beautiful, eternal one to come! No matter what happens now, even death has been conquered. I am your Lord. I am with you and will be faithful to love you, even after the end of this world!
