Paul Revere Prophecy

I received this Sept 28th, 2022. I was watching Youtube and was impressed by the Lord to turn it off and listen. I heard these words. I am still pondering them…if you receive any revelation please share it with me. (Honestly, I just sat there and cried,…I don’t care what Holy Spirit says, I am just so very grateful, that He will speak to me…tears,…I am lovesick for His presence and anointing. I cannot live without Him.)

Paul Revere Prophecy:

“Listen my daughter and you shall hear the sound of the rider named Paul Revere. 

He is coming and he is calling ~ Watch out! Watch out ~ for the British are coming! 

One if by land and two if by sea, look to the bell tower, look to Me. 

The lighthouse which reflects over the Sea  ~ will show you the path of righteousness to Me. 

Listen my daughter and you shall hear the sound of the rider coming near. 

The horse’s hooves as they beat the ground ~ riding ~ riding ~ riding  ~hear the sound. 

Listen and look and see and hear ~ that I AM drawing near. 

I am bringing victory for you, victory for all who seek Me and are true. 

Listen, My daughter ~ listen and hear ~ clarity is coming to you, clarity and revelation knowledge and wisdom that I am sending to you ~ that you may see the path that I have chosen.  

Clearly, you shall see clearly~ Clearly, you shall hear. There shall be light upon the path ~ go this way, don’t go here. 

Clearly, you shall hear, listen to My voice ~ Listen to My voice ~ I will speak to you. 

I will show you, I will draw near. 

Listen my daughter and you shall see ~ the place I am bringing you to be.

I have not forgotten thee ~  nor shall I ever forsake thee. 

I have honed you in the fires of affliction. I have lifted you up out of the ashes and the dust of your life. I will dust you off and heal you. I will raise you up and anoint you, for you are Mine, My beloved child. You are Mine and My desire is for you. 

Lift up your voice and let Me hear your voice ~ for Lo’, the winter has passed and the spring time has come ~ and I long to hear your voice My turtle dove. 

Listen, listen and you shall hear ~ the sound of the rider drawing near. 

The rider crying out, crying out for America. 

The hooves on the road ~ Echoing ~  Thumping ~ Stomping, . . . 

Feel the wind in your face and jump on My back and ride with Me at a breakneck speed. 

When the Wind is in your face and His tail is straight out behind you ~ riding with Me on My horse ~ on the Spirit ~  on the winds~ on the winds of time ~ on the winds of the times ~ hear the hooves ~ hear the hoofbeats ~ hear the stomping ~ see clearly ~ see with the eyes of My Spirit ~ as I pick you up and take you forward at a quick and breakneck speed. 

Listen my daughter and you shall hear ~ the rider like Paul Revere drawing near ~ drawing near ~ drawing near.”

The Army Has Already Been Sent

I post this prophetic word in the fear of the Lord. I pondered it for 2 months before I felt I could post it.

May the Lord protect you and cover you with His grace as you read and share it.

It is a personal letter to me but it is also for the whole body of Christ.

I woke up this morning hearing from the Lord: “Just wait and see what I’m gonna do!”

(in an air of excitement, not, don’t do anything…)

“ I AM here My love. Be at peace. All is well with Me. I AM not upset or angry with you during this season of your life. I see all and I hear all that is being said behind the scenes. You have forgotten that I told you, you are being betrayed; again!

But there is no need to fear. I have your back. I AM that I AM and no one touches My anointed, My beloved, and does not incur My wrath and My recompense. You can plan on it.

I AM that I AM – the Father of ALL fathers. The One who is, and was, and is to come. I created all that is seen and unseen. There is nothing that is hidden from Me.

No one gets away with any injustice. I am patient and long-suffering it is true, and I do not wish for any man to perish, but I will not relent. I will not tarry forever. I will not put up with man forever. I will not strive with man forever. (Gen 6:3)

Hear me when I say this – Heed my words.

It IS a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God.

My hand has not been shortened that I cannot deal with the wicked and the unjust – now in this time – now in this season.

I WILL and I DO!

You need not fear, My love, the terror by day, nor the sword by night, for I walk with you. I go with you.

(Psalm 91, Exodus 33)

You are My beloved one, in whom I AM well pleased.

Yes, wicked men seek to destroy your life, but you are safe with and in Me. (Psalm 31:20)

Though a thousand may fall at your side and 10,000 at your right hand, it shall not come near you. You shall only look and see the destruction of the wicked as they fall around you.

(Psalm91)

Do not fret or worry, My love, I AM taking care of all of this for you. I see what they have done in secret to destroy your life.

They are full of piss and vinegar. They are full of dead men’s bones, dried up corpses rotting in the sun, with no one to mourn them or grieve their loss. Fate has brought them to their end and it is full of bitter dregs and sour grapes.

The beautiful life I had planned for them has been forfeited and now a plague and a famine shall overtake them.

Their bowels will rot in extreme pain and their brittle bones shall break. I will send a sickness upon their minds that cannot be cured, and their finances will dry up like hot sand in the desert; endless sands of worthless land and value.

I do not have to destroy their relationships for they have done that on their own with their selfish ways and evil narcissistic desires.

They will beg me, like a man begging for water in a desert, but I will not bring them relief , only judgment.

Be assured. My ways are Holy!

My ways are past finding out and too high for man to comprehend.

These are days of My judgment and My wrath upon the wicked.

I have heard My children’s cries.

I have overheard their conversations.

Only pray for the innocent ones who have followed wicked leaders for my face has been set like a flint and I will not relent in my wisdom and judgments.

All will see and All will know that I AM the Lord.

Others will mock you and put you out of there places of business, but all these things and more must come to pass that My judgments may come forth.

Do not look to the right or the left but look up – for you redemption draws near.

Look up I say – Look up!

Look up to your Heavenly Father Who rises from His Throne at the appointed hour to call forth His angels, to rally His heavenly host, for the battle of the ages.

Look up!

For your salvation draws near.

All will see and All will know that I AM the Lord and there is no other.

Be at peace My love, I come and I come quickly to rescue those that I love. I will not tarry any longer.

My children, my children’s children cry out to Me day and night, all over the world for help – for justice to prevail.

Even their hope in the once proud United States to come and rescue them has been stolen from them.

They’re only hope is for miracles.

They suffer greatly at the hands of wicked and evil men and women.

BUT I HAVE HEARD THEIR CRIES!

I WILL avenge My faithful ones.

A GREAT HARVEST of souls is on the way.

Prepare for training, gathering in, and mothering/fathering these children. They are lost and forgotten, untrained, unloved, left to their own devices, and floundering.

Teach them to love each other.

Teach them to love Me.

Show them My Ways and tell them I love them and have a great purpose and plans for each one of them.

Set up schools of love and family. Set up home groups for fellowship and fun. Bring light into their darkness and love into their pain.

All over the world I have called you to go – travel to all those places to bring love and light – joy and gladness – to be My Messenger of Love.

My dear, My darling one, My precious angel, I adore you. No matter what life has thrown at you, you respond in love, and forgiveness, and in Hope.

Hope, (my old dog) sends her greetings and prays for you daily.

Mokee (my rescue dog) says: “Go get em’ mama, like you came and got me and saved me from neglect and pain and hurt. You calmed the storms in my heart and I pray for you that your faith will not fail!”

They both send their love to you, My dear, as do I.

Yes – life is real here in paradise – My ears have not been deaf to the pains and the constant cries for help that come up to Me – from all over the world. The scales are tipped. The balances are not even.

There must be a JUST weight.

I AM balancing My scales of justice, I AM doing it – I WILL do it. It is SOON.

Yes, My beloved children, prepare your hearts, learn of Me and My Ways, prepare for the flood of souls to love and pastor.

I cry out:

“RETURN TO ME,

RETURN TO ME

for I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will pour out judgment on whom I will.

I AM that I AM and All people will see and know that I AM the Lord.

Be at peace My beloved ones the army has already been sent.

Yeshua

Condemnation.

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus… Roman’s 8:1

One of the things that I find in ministry that seems to be epidemic is a spirit of condemnation and false humility. It stems from religion and a ‘Works Theology’.

So many people these days think that if they fast hard enough, or pray hard enough, or sing songs perfect enough, or do things correctly, or even give money to the church that this will ensure their salvation and their right standing with God.

This could not be farther from the truth. God is a God of great Grace and great mercy and He’s interested in relationship not religion. If you find yourself guilty and full of shame because you forgot to pray yesterday, that is not the voice of the lord.

Father God is love and kindness and mercy. He desires for his children to cuddle up to him and share their hearts not to be rigid like a schoolmaster with a ruler in his hand lording it over us if we don’t get it right.

Jesus loves you and just wants to be with you as his beloved child. Don’t let condemnation keep you from receiving the love of God.God is a God of great grace and love and kindness and mercy.

Meat not milk; The Great Saints

Meat not milk; The Great Saints

Meat not milk posts:

Name me one saint, or one great man or woman of God that did not have to stand up alone to the establishment of their day at least some time in their life?
Joan of arc
St. Francis
St. Patrick
Apostle Paul
John the beloved
Abraham
Moses
Jesus

Just saying…….

Part 2 of my meat not milk posts:
Most of these or maybe all were mostly alone in their calling. They spent hours and hours alone in prayer. They were not famous publically but in the eyes of our Lord.
They rarely had extremely large meetings but met those the Lord sent them to in smaller groups and along their journeys.
They became well
Known in old age or after death.
Think about it…..

The importance of peace, prayer, and constant intimate communion with our Beloved God can not be over stated.

Allegiance; Which Law Shall We Follow?

Freedom
FREEDOM!

Is there such a thing as the providence of God? Is every open door God leading us and every closed door telling us not to go that way?

Are we in rebellion against God when we don’t follow the pastor’s suggestions or sometimes even orders? What about the civil laws? Are we disobedient children or are we actually following the Holy Spirit?

Years ago the Holy Spirit took me on a journey which started with a question from my husband. He asked me one day: “Why do you keep submitting yourself up under pastors who are less mature than you are?”

This question really shook me up. At the time I was struggling with some of the things our current pastor in the church was preaching. But more importantly Holy Spirit was teaching me the difference between man’s authority and His authority. I could not answer his question, except to say this was what I was taught to do.

At that time in my life, we were attending a nondenominational, charismatic church. I had come to that church while my husband, who was an Episcopal priest, was doing what I call Renta-priest, supply work for pastors on the weekends, since he was currently looking for a home church. I had in my mind that I had gone to a real free church, a church with lots of freedom, we were able to flow in the gifts of the Holy Spirit openly. But did I?

Not only was I mistaken, thinking that I was living in true freedom, but Holy Spirit was giving me the strangest dreams, dreams of Esther Williams in water ballets and the shallowness of our church trying to be seeker friendly. We were told there would be no wildfire in the church. And I was told, as most women were in the late 20th century, that if you do not obey your authority and you have a prophetic gift that makes you a witch. Seriously, they would call us witches.

Also during the season of my life the Lord brought a serious revelation about Rethinking the Wine Skin a book I read byFrank Viola, which only confirmed all that Holy Spirit had been telling me in the secret place. That blind obedience to man’s authority was not obedience to God’s.

I was actually afraid. We had been doing church like this since Constantine into 232 AD. I felt the Holy Spirit was sneaking up on me to teach this message to the body of Christ and I knew, that I knew, that I knew, that this would bring with it great persecution. If there’s one thing the enemy of our souls does not like, it is freedom in the Holy Spirit. I learned that what I now call, the established church, can be cruel and mean and actually participate with the enemy of our souls. At that time I was naïve and truly believed in the Word of God, passionate obedience to authority, and that the Lord was the one leading the congregations in the earth.

Let me make myself perfectly clear today, I am not against all established churches. I am speaking out against falseness & hypocrisy, false authority, and selfish religion. The problem is, that only the Lord Jesus Christ is truly able to judge which is harsh and which is Holy. You must seek Him in your heart and you must follow His advice in the word of God which teaches us you will know these false prophets and false teachers by their fruits. 

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Matthew 1:15-20

Fruit takes time to grow. In the natural order of things, when growing fruit trees, from root to shoot it takes 1-3 years, from shoot to fruit it takes about 3-5 years. My point being, that when you judge by the fruit you cannot judge by the situation. You must allow time to be your ally and wait to see the fruit in a person’s life. People make mistakes along their journey but that does not make them all false prophets and teachers.

And let me take a minute to say the judging is not discernment. God wants us to discern between right and wrong and the scripture is clear in this area. He does not want us to be ignorant about what is correct and what is not correct, about what is righteous and about what is not righteous. But when it comes to judgment He leaves that to Himself, pronouncing sentence is something only the Lord Jesus Christ should be honored to do. Only He knows the truth and the path that brought us where we have come, only He judges in righteousness for He sees the heart.

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” Matthew 7:1-6

So where does that leave us? I, like most faithful and loyal people in the body of Christ, seek to bring peace and seek to follow God to the best of my abilities. God will use every circumstance in our lives to produce character and maturity as we grow in even the harshest of situations. When the wind blows against the tree trunk it creates a strength in the trunk that prevents it from future storms. So it is with us, if we can keep our hearts pure, and not hardened from bitterness and un-forgiveness, we too can be made strong by the cold winter winds.

Let’s look at the first century church in the book of acts. 

Were not the disciples preaching on the steps of the synagogue when they were arrested and thrown into jail? 

So were they out of the will of God by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, on the very synagogue steps, of the established church? Was that a closed door?

I suggest to you that they were in the center of the perfect will of God for their lives at that moment in time. I suggest to you that the authority of the day, at that synagogue, who were not Christian believers, to whom the disciples had come to preach the Gospel and Bring freedom and love, did not receive it.

I ask you to take another look at the scripture. Persecution, was promised by our Lord Jesus. He said to us:

16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. 

17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. 

18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 

19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; 

20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. 

21 Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 

22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 

23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. 

24 A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 

25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household! 

26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 

27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10 16-23

I think the body of Christ has things confused. 

Jesus never promised us that every open door or opportunity would be His leading and that all closed doors were Him telling us not to go that way. 

This teaching leads us down the wrong path, yes, a path of safety and security and lack of risk, but also leads us down the path of immaturity and lack of courage. To truly walk following the Holy Spirit we must culture the fruit of courage in our lives. We must seek Holy Spirit’s leading in the secret place of prayer and follow Him in trust and perfect obedience at all cost to our flesh, our character, our reputation, our feelings, and our understanding sometimes.

This is why the most important thing in the life of a believer is spending time with Holy Spirit in the secret place of prayer. Seeking Him and learning to hear His voice is the most important thing in life. As we behold Him we are transformed from glory to glory. 

This is how we build character and courage and confidence in following the Lord. This is how we know when another believer is also following the Lord and we can trust their advice and opinions. But we must never blindly follow someone else in leadership without asking Holy Spirit or else we are in serious error of putting man’s leadership over God’s.

Here is another example. And one which is very controversial. 

Should we bring Bibles to nations that have outlawed the word of God? 

I suggest to you that it is mandatory in the heart of every true believer who is seeking to follow the great commission. And yes, we should disobey the civil law for the higher law of the kingdom of God. 

Will we get arrested? Maybe? 

Will we be shunned by those who still believe that disobeying civil and national laws is rebellion against God? Most certainly. 

Are you willing to look like a fool, to be yelled at, to be mocked, and shunned, to take up your cross daily for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Gospel that He has commissioned us to spread around the world? 

Are you? 

Can you do it in love? 

Can you be yelled at and mocked and accused wrongly and still pray for those people in forgiveness with no bitterness in your heart? 

Are you allowing Holy Spirit to produce the sweet fruit of the persecuted church ~ the sweet fragrance of complete and total surrender to His leadership in trust obedience and in love-sickness for His Heart? 

You will ravish His heart if you do.
