2016 And Beyond...

Saints, I want you to know, that at the end of the day, when it's all said and done, the Word of God is true. Jesus is still returning, the Rapture is still real, judgment is still at hand. Darkness and wickedness is still increasing, and time is still running out.

The truth is, today there are pastors, prophets, apostles etc, that are merchandising the gospel, selling signs and wonders, and prostituting prophecy, and this should not be. No one should have to pay money to receive the truth, deliverance, healing, impartations or prophetic words. If Christ came to give the gift of salvation, and a gift is free, then how did we come about justifying that it is for sale? This is not the church that Jesus was talking about when He told Peter, "Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). Most of these churches today have actually become the gates of hell. We are not living according to John 17:21 when Jesus prayed, "Father, make us one (meaning the church), even as you and I are one." No, we are divided. We compete against one another, we're full of slander and gossip, ridicule and judgment. Then we wonder why God is not freely moving in our lives. Today we are living as the church of Laodicea mentioned in Revelation 3:14-22. We are the church that thinks we have everything and all the answers, but don't realize that we are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked before the Lord.

I want you to know that no manner amount of dreams, visions, or prophetic words are going to get you into the Kingdom of Heaven. No matter what I've shared on what I've dreamed or been shown, I've always indicated that in the end, YOU MUST KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF. I have said it before, and I will say it again and again; stop following man. Mankind is flawed; FOLLOW CHRIST! Know His voice for yourself, and stop looking for heaven in people. Know that you WILL be mocked, scoffed, persecuted, rejected, and some even killed.  But the prophets of old went through this, and the first century church went through it. Our brother and sisters overseas are currently going through this, and most of all, Christ suffered through it. But in the end, those who stand even unto death, will be victorious, and we will reign with Him.   

2016 will be a year that the Glory of God will be shown. In other words, the glory of man will be removed. Many will come to the knowledge that the Word of God is true, and that He will not be mocked. The same God that is slow to anger and plenty in mercy, is the same God who said that His Spirit will not always strive with man. Humility and obedience is the key in 2016. There is still a little time left to be refined by His fire, so embrace it. But the time is coming when you will be locked into your status. Judgment has already begun and will continue to accelerate this year. Don't be fooled by the media, listen to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches. Keep watch, stay alert. Don't slumber because you did not see His return on a particular day, or the world collapse in a particular week. Know that His word will not return void. Be encouraged. Our brothers and sisters of old longed to see the times that we live in. They predicated these things through the Spirit of the Lord centuries before they would ever come to pass. And now they sleep. But the day is fast approaching when the trumpet will sound with a mighty blast, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then those that are alive and still remaining (in truth) will be caught up together with them to meet Him in the clouds.

May 2016 be a year that the Glory of God be revealed on the earth.
