The Time Has Come to Promote My People

I  was in my evening prayer time before going to bed and I began feeling anticipation in my spirit, when the Lord began to speak this word to me.

A time of promotions has come. The time has come to promote My people who have walked in My ways. Those who have truly laid down all to serve Me will now see clearly My hand of blessing upon their lives. Those around you shall also see it and know it is My hand.

Much difficulty lies ahead in the coming year, My children. Difficulties of many kinds are approaching, a time like none you have seen before. A time of great difficulty when many shall not know where to turn for help or hope.

You are My voice in the earth, My little ones, and I desire you would speak My love and mercy and hope to those who shall be afflicted in what is soon to come.

Arm yourselves. Arm yourselves with My word and My wisdom. Know it well for it shall benefit not only you but all those around you as well. Do not fear what is coming, but stand ready to do all I have called you to do. Know you are My chosen for this time and be glad, My children. Be very glad for great is your honor in heaven and great shall be your reward.

Some of you have felt the changes taking place in the unseen realm. Much is being readied in preparation for the battle soon to come. Angelic beings surround My people on the earth ready to carry out My commands. The enemy also has forces ready in an attempt to stop the work of My kingdom, but he shall not succeed. Prepare for battle, My children. Prepare well for the battle soon to come.  

I shall raise up some among you to be great leaders in this time. They shall seem to come out of nowhere for I have kept them hidden for such a time as this. I have prepared them well and made them strong and mighty in battle. They shall not be moved by what they see or what they feel, but only by their Master's voice calling to them.

The year that lies ahead will be difficult for many but it shall be a joyous one for many of My children who have walked in obedience to Me, for now they shall begin to see the rewards of their much obedience. 

Psalm 75:6-7: For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. (7) But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Jude 1:2: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

Matthew 20:16: So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Zechariah 10:5: And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded.

Beautiful! This is a beautiful word from the Lord, and the verses that go with it as well. Reading this gives me such peace and confirmation in my spirit. We have all been chosen to live now, for His glory, however that plays out in each of our lives. When our faith is in Him, it all makes sense, doesn't it? However, when we look at the storm, we see life without Him: chaotic, confusing, scary...the world that the devil lives in. Keep your heart and mind fixed on Him, and He will make your feet like hinds feet, securing you in His love and peace! He is the Father of Lights! Blessings!

This is a beautiful word from the Lord. We will be ready for this battle when it come's. We must put on the whole armor of God on us with word and deed. In battle we must not loose faith in him. Onence we do saint's Satan will win. We must stand for the faith if we are to win the battle for our souls. May God bless each and everyone of us.

Demita said...

I came across a song that seems to go along with this message and I wanted to share it:

Jesus will shower His love on those that love Him in the times to come. And that is an encouraging thought and message.

Scisme, Yah is God. I always think of it as being short for Yahwey.

Hello Sister Glynda. The Lord says, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established" (2 Corinthians 13:1), so I wanted to bless you with this word from the Lord which was given to Sister A. Chenoa, for He is surely using His vessels to speak his will in pure righteousness.Bless God in the Highest.

Sifted Like Wheat? – Come to Me December 21, 2011 – [12.21.12] - 8:58 pm
Come to Me; wait upon Me. Wait upon Me and I shall instruct you in the way that you should go. Fear not. Wars and rumors of wars ─ so it is written, so it is true. Yet the day fast approaches for you where it shall no longer be a rumor of war, but war itself in nations that have enjoyed peaceful times upon their land.

Many wonder at My silence at times, yet in My silence, you begin to see what I am revealing to you. Judgment began some time ago, beginning in My own house, yet the harshest judgment upon the nations has not yet unfolded.
Have you not read ‘line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little? The drunken priests and prophets mocked the words of Isaiah, speaking words of mumble jumble to Isaiah (mocking, nonsensical words). [Is 28:10]

Yet, Isaiah, My prophet stood his ground, deflecting the mockery with the truth that indeed, I speak to the educated and uneducated, the wise and the foolish, the sinner and the saved alike, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little.

The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. [Jer 28:23]

Maranatha! said...

Continuation: Yea, many speak of peace when there is no peace and truly worse times are fast approaching. Many speak of love, yet only speak the easy things that do not upset the hearer. Yea, but truth encompasses love and love speaks forth hard things.

Those who are Mine will speak the harder things to cause the hearts of the people to be pricked. Yea, but the desire of those who speak such things is two-fold. The warnings must go forth about that which is coming, as foretold in My word.

Their heart’s motive and passion is to drive people to repentance and to return to their Creator and Savior. How often do they say to seek Me? It is in time with Me that you will find rest; you will be refreshed. Many refuse to hear it. [Is 28:12]

Yet, if the willful and disobedient choose to reject My word in a plain and simple way, if foolish rhetoric or gibberish is the response, I shall speak their words back to them.

Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards…! [Is 28:1] Woe to the priest and prophet who speak fair words and give fair speeches, to win the hearts of people, with truth that is mixed with deception.

Many seek to gain wealth, and many long for the glory. They err in vision, they stumble in judgment… filth and vomit, there is no place clean amongst them. [Is 28:7,8]

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! [Is 5:20]

Where did you see My apostles or disciples drunk, either in the physical or in the spiritual? Show Me if you can, for others thought them to be drunk because they did not understand what was happening to My people who experienced Pentecost.

Yea, I can choose to speak with (through) stammering lips and another tongue, wherein the wayward shall fall backward and stumble, become broken and ensnared upon My word. [Is 28:11,12]

Maranatha! said...

Continuation: How long will you stay in a state of hopelessness? Have I not revealed to My people to spend time with Me now, whilst there is still time? Yea, but many are weary, tired of waiting, tired of warnings, tired of all they see and hear. Yet, have I not said that those who wait upon Me shall rise up with wings as eagles?

Wait upon Me for then shall you run and not be weary; and you shall walk and not faint. [Is 40:31] In Me, you will find your resting place; you will be refreshed. Away from distractions, away from the world’s frenzy… come to Me.

I have heard your prayers for the lost, the oppressed, and the body of Christ. Soon deliverance, healing and restoration shall manifest. Yet first, the final stages of cleansing and purification must take place.

In My silence, you are strengthened, for when you are weak, it is I who will strengthen you as you wait upon Me.

Many feel they have become worse, not better. Others have backslidden. Yet I ask you, does the dross not come to the surface when silver is refined? Is gold not purified by fire? This is not the time to weary. This is not the time to turn away. Come to Me and wait upon Me.

Many begin a race and quit when the finish line is in sight, for they did not strengthen themselves enough, for the last, hard stretch. When all your strength is gone, have I not told you that I shall strengthen you?

Again I say, when you are weak, you are strong. [2Cor 12:10] I AM He who will strengthen you, as you come to Me; waiting upon Me.

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when you are converted, strengthen thy brethren. [Lk 22:31, 32]

To be sifted as wheat is to be tossed to and fro, shaken violently. The time of the sifting seems endless. Many cry out for mercy, not knowing that the end result will leave only the good wheat, the acceptable, fruitful grain – a most necessary process. The sifting separates the wheat from the stalk, leaving the good wheat.

Stand with Me, for I AM the Lord of the battle and I shall strengthen you to turn the battle at the gate. For the sifting is the last stage in preparation for harvest. Turned, tossed and shaken is never pleasurable whilst it is happening (for the wheat).

Maranatha! said...

Continuation: I shall thresh the heavy chaff from the wheat, to be gathered and burned. In tossing (winnowing), the light chaff shall be blown away by the wind, and the good grain shall fall to the ground. Yet, the separating of the wheat will make the wheat worthy and of good use.

Shall your faith endure? Will I find faith in the earth when I return? Lo, I tell you, endure, endure, endure to the end. Yes, I try the hearts, so that you may see where your faith stands. I will have pure vessels to work through in the days that are fast approaching.

I have seen your frustration, your hopelessness, your anger, your weariness, but I say to you: Do not give up! Do you see the finish line ahead? You have come too far to give up now! Yes, the sifting must be. Then shall you go and strengthen your brethren.

Did you not pray to be found worthy and to escape that which is coming? Did you not pray to do the greater works and to walk in My power, allowing Me to work through a purified vessel? This is all part of it.

Rise up now. I am calling My people to rise up. Gird your loins and set your face as flint; I shall strengthen your heart and mind, as you spend time with Me.

Do not succumb to the discouragement from daily reports. Do not concern yourself with My timing, for I shall be right on time. Yet, if I delay, know that there is a purpose in it. I do all things well, decently and in order.

When you trust Me, you will find rest in that trust. When you obey Me, you will know the peace that passes all understanding, for your confidence will be steadfast, knowing all is in My hands. This peace is not as the world gives.

Truly that which was foretold is soon upon the nations. Great chaos; great sorrow, great destruction, disease, war, captivity for many – all of this is fast approaching, yet those who trust and obey need not fear.

Maranatha! said...

Continuation: Again I say, rise up and shake off the lies of the adversary. Do not look around you in dismay or distress over circumstances. Do as I lead you, for I will speak to you in many ways. Try every spirit to see if it is of Me. Stay in My word and get it down deep in your heart.

What is my strength, that I should hope? And what is my end, that I should prolong my life? [Job 6:11] Many are feeling as Job, discouraged, hopeless, without strength. I remind you of Job’s outcome.

Pray, for blessed are you that trusts in Me and whose hope is in Me. [Jer 17:7] For all that is happening and all that is coming, know that I AM a God of justice and judgment. Know that I AM your hope and your strength.

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. [Joel 3:16]

Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is [Jer 17:7]

The LORD shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways. [Deu 28:7]

Keep in prayer and spend time with Me. Be patient in your waiting, for that which I have told you, will soon be upon you. Trust Me in that which I have revealed to you.

Although you have wearied in your waiting, and have doubted that you have heard from Me at times, wait I say, awhile longer.

Though it has seemed a long time, though it seems to tarry, it shall be on time. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. [Hab 2:3]

The warnings have resounded across the land for many years and now My people weary. I say, Wait upon Me; trust and obey. Stay very close to Me. Read My word.

Therefore wait ye upon Me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all My fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy. [Zeph 3:8]

That which must come, will come. Fear not. Come to Me, wait upon Me and trust. My beloved spoke, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. [Songs of Solomon 2:10]

The Time is Day One in the Year of Our Lord. December 25th to be exact. A few days earlier; Mary, a virgin espoused to Joseph of the house of David, was visited by the Archangel Gabriel. A messenger of God, sent to bring the "Good News" of the Saviour coming to "promote his people". As Mary had just realized she was with child, she went to visit her cousin Elisabeth. She knew He was a special Child. Gabriel had told her these things: His name shall be Jesus,He shall be called the Son of the Highest, and He shall be great. He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Now, Elisabeth was six months with child and that child being John the Baptist. As Mary entered the house, she hailed a salutation. There's no doubt she was filled with excitement and the Holy Spirit. As Elisabeth heard Mary's salute, Her child lept in her womb. The Holy Spirit was alive and with them. We need no further proof than this, that life begins with conception. How blessed, to experience the miracle of birth. How wonderful it is to celebrate the day of our Lord and Saviour coming to be with us in flesh. Celebrate Christmas and rejoice, for our Saviour is about to return to gather His people to live with Him in Peace and Harmony, for ever and ever! Amen!

@Scisme Brandy is correct, I call the Most High by one of his hebrew names, Yahweh some of my african jewish colleagues say Yahuwah. The same name you call him when you say Hallelu-YAH (Praise the Lord). Jesus' hebrew name is Yahushua some Jews shorten it to Y'Shua. So when I say Yah it is a shortened version of Yahweh/Yahuwah.

Hello all.....blessings!! Confirming word dear sister!! There are many who have been chosen for a time such as this. The nameless faceless ones who will first undestand they are citizens of heaven ushering in the Kingdom.

Much strategy will soon be released to take back the mountains and much will tarry so the Lord can remove the snares that would cause us to operate under our own power. If we can do all that is called to do on our own, than it will not be from God.

The word "impossible" will be tagged onto what we are called to do so that we will understand that only the Father can accomplish the heavenly blueprint about to unfold.

Many times prophetic people say things that are not on the scene yet and act as if they are. I ask for forgiveness for that, because it often causes confusion to those simply looking for the love of the Father.

There is much the Lord will soon reveal to those who have counted the cost and have stood the furnace of affliction. The path is indeed becoming more narrow as the days pass. Let us not be found wanting in these times, but cry out....."Here I am Lord, send me"!!! Isa. 6:8 .....May the Lord be your cloud by day and your pillar of fire by night.....Always in His presence, Dwayne.....><(("<

A lot of what "Maranatha" shares here is exactly what God has been showing me too. Thank you to that as well as this word here.

That last paragraph is particularly confounding and glorious, isn't it? :)

I think that perhaps I have been shaken so much to sift out more of what does not glorify Him, helping me more to rely on Him for the way forward, rather than on the natural. I'm finding too as many are in fact, that he is indeed making me more unshaken in him, growing my confidence there, come what may. I have to be thankful for that, regardless, but that is not to say I enjoy ANY shaking, mind you! :)

One final thing: the other night as I was trying to sleep, I heard what sounded like one of those old V-2 type bomb drop type sounds --the one where it whistles down but then just stops in silence just before the drop. I waited for some huge crash or something, but no, nothing. Not sure if it was the Lord or not, but goose bumps covered me straight down to my body. Then such an urgency to pray and plead the Lord's blood on those i know and love.

Now is not the time to be lost in word and mind games. Now is the time to press in so we can indeed be that calm voice in the midst of storms coming. "Let me just be found worthy of your calling, Lord, so we can bring glorify you in our lives when most needed especially" is what i keep finding myself praying or some variation thereof.

Ty, Glynda.
