Strategic Couplings


My children, the heat is being turned up in your lives and in your world.

I will soon begin to place My devoted ones into position for battle as I have called them to stand. Some of you I will place in pairs - strategic couplings for the battles ahead.

I have chosen mates for you that complement your weaknesses. They will be your rear guards on the earth as you march forth into all I have called you to do. Many of you I will pair with unlikely counterparts of which the world around you will not approve, nor understand. 

Those near you cannot always see My mighty hand in all I am doing in your lives.

Be careful, My children, of judging with your eyes or your hearts - judge only by My Spirit, for you walk in danger of calling My plans evil when you do this, and I do not consider lightly those who call My good evil, just as those who call evil good. Refrain your lips from speaking evil and seek Me only. Judge not what does not concern your own lives, for you shall see much around you in these end times you will not understand.

The times approaching are perilous indeed, and I have a plan for each of your lives. You will not always understand what I am doing or the many ways I shall bless you through it.

Many plans of the Evil One are being hatched behind the scenes, the horrors of which many are unaware. My children who have been watching and praying for My Son's soon return shall not be caught unawares.

Rest now while you can, My children, for a fierce battle looms on the horizon of your lives and will soon be at your doors.

Isaiah 58:8-10:  (NIV)
8  and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday.

Isaiah 55:9: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 5:20-21:  
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
2 Tim. 3:1: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

Matthew 7:1-5:
1Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Romans 14:12-13:  12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

I've been feeling the same thing recently, and believe I have been observing a few of these strategic couplings beginning to form.

A little over a year ago a girl posted a word on your message forum about what she refered to as Power Couples. This word really stuck with me. I love that God is now bringing His Power Couples together and preparing them to walk into the battle field together in His power.

It's really awesome, though I'll admit the weight of what comes with it can be unnerving if not remaining fully focused on Christ and drawing their strength in Him. The unnerving bit being the extra warfare that will come against these strategic couples. The enemy will see the threat and try extra hard to knock them down or tear them apart. Also I've felt that these power couples were specifically meant to walk and work together in these end days. To me at least, it seems to indicate the lateness of the hour now that God is bringing these couples together.

Glynda Lomax said...

Brandy - I agree with you. And the enemy will definitely use the fact that they don't look like what the world expects, but on the inside, they're what God created them to be. The fruit will show who they are, and I suspect God will deal pretty severely with any who come against them in the meantime :-)

I loved the word about power couples as well, I felt strongly in my spirit that was from the Lord.

Eric said...

I know there's a prayer requests thread, but I felt this comment would be appropriate here as it has to do with the 'couples' comments that have been made so far.

I'd be grateful for any prayers that could be made with regard to God opening up the eyes of my heart versus my mind, so that I can better see the purpose that He has for me; both individually, and with regard to how I'm supposed to bless and support my spouse.

My spouse is incredibly in-tune with the spiritual realm, whereas I'm about as dumb as a rock when it comes to anything I can't see with my own eyes. I'm an incredibly literal person, which can make it very hard to live by the Spirit at times, and to not be judgmental of what's happening around me (and to not despair too easily when it comes to things I don't understand).

I want to be able to properly complement my wife and play my part in what is coming. I want to help uplift her and not be a burden.

Again, any positive prayers about this would be much appreciated.

Glynda, thank you very much for your post and for your dedication.

Your blog blows me away because in my spirit I feel God leading me to couple - up(marriage) and the man who looked like he was just perfect for me is not the one God had for me. He is leading me to someone else who is not anything I would think God has for me but in spirit I believe that he is the one God has for me. I am fighting it sometimes but I believe it has something to do with the end-times and a covering for me, my children, and my Mom. I am a widow. I am praying a lot for his guidance and your article is spot-on. Thank-you for writing it!!! Kimi

Glynda Lomax said...

Kimmie - I know just what you mean. I spent years thinking I knew just the kind of husband the Lord would bring me, but signs are pointing a different direction and I also believe it has to do with the end times and all that is coming. God is going to send us protectors and watchmen to watch over us. I'm delighted with the difference, but surprised. God bless you - thanks for posting - Glynda

Sis Glynda,
A few weeks ago, I heard the LORD said, "HE will put me with a person from afar." I did not understand this at the time but your post explain the many questions that I had. Praise the LORD GOD for His Word to His People. Thank you LORD! and thank you Sis Glynda.


godsfingers said...

What a refreshing Word from the Lord. An encouragement and blessing. Like enlisted soldiers who have been waiting for assignments, tired of waiting, waiting, eager to get into the mix of battle, this is anticipated. We, here, anticipate, finally, the move that God has been telling us about since January. And it will be His miracle.

Praise the Lord!

Steven Cass said...

Magnolia, the best way to combat sin is to bring it out into the open. Twelve steppers are taught this- that's why they are paired up with an accountable partner and admit when they've fallen. The Evil One's are hard to overcome if sin is kept secret. So, to combat your husband what has to happen is you have to confront him and tell him you know. If you are afraid of his reaction then find a good Christian counselor and confront him there. Either way you should get the counselor actually. This can't stay in the dark though, and if his lies are starting to unravel than use this as an opportunity to hopefully help him to come out of his sin, and to restore your marriage bond. God Bless you and you are in my prayers.

In that case Magnolia, I humbly suggest that you find a Christian counselor, but just for yourself. A good counselor can help you see more clearly in the dark times, but make sure it's a Christian counselor. Ask your church pastor, church members you trust, and pray on it. And remember this: The Lord never allows us to be tempted beyond our strength. Consider just how much you've been tempted and attacked by the Evil One, and then consider how much confidence that means the Lord has in your strength! Finally, I always turn to Psalm 70 when I am tempted and attacked. God Bless and you remain in my prayers l.

Magnolia said...

Thank you, Steven, for your counsel and prayers. Psalm 70 was a blessing to me as well.

Trusting in Him,
Magnolia

Magnolia,

I feel very much for you because I suspect the same concerning my husband but have no solid proof. the Lord has taught me that my husband is my head that I answer to him and he answers to Christ. If I don't obey God's order of things I am being disobedient to Him. I have learned it is God's job not mine to correct or confront my husband. Since I have been resting in the Lord I've been seeing the Lord working and he has even shown me that he has promised household salvation. Believe God's promises and rest from your own works and God can bring your husband to repentance. I know the Father has granted my husband repentance already,He sees the end from the beginning. Now I am walk and speaking in agreement with Him. My husband and I went to counseling for a year and the only thing it did was cause me to realize I had to get my answers from my heavenly Father. What the Father showed my was I needed to repent and be under my husband and then He can deal with my husband. I have such peace and joy now that I am not using the arm of my flesh to try to accomplish for God what he has already promised. Remember Abraham and God's promise to give him a son, Isaac? It took Abraham much longer to receive his promised son because he chose to use the arm of his flesh. We have a God who calls the things that are not as though they were and we need to do the same.:o)(Rom. 4:17) Jer. 17:3Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah.

6For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited.

7Blessed is the man that trusteth in Jehovah, and whose trust Jehovah is.

God Bless You Sister. My prayers are with you!

I deleted my earlier posts. They were not honoring to my Lord or my husband. I will wait for the Lord, please pray for strength to endure. I am weary.

Resting In Jesus said...

Magnolia,
I would like to get in contact with you, if you are willing. I would need Glynda's help though since I don't want to post my e-mail address for all to see.

Prayers and blessing to you Magnolia.

Resting In Jesus said...

Magnolia,

I've contacted Glynda. If you would like to contact me, e-mail Glynda and she will forward your contact info to me. :o)

TrulyJulie said...

Does anyone know which specific blog entry the word about "power couples" was posted on? I am very interested in reading it.

Glynda Lomax said...

TrulyJulie - I think it might be under Singles, not sure.

Here is the Power Couples word from the Forum:

Power Couples
posted Jun 12, 2011 by PatriotGal

I've had more than a few inquire about the topic of marriage with me as of late, so I'll take that as a nudge from the Lord to post this.

For several months, almost a year now, the Lord has been showing me what I am calling "Power Couples". These are marriages that the Lord is creating for His Glory during the End Times. I've listed some of the characteristics below. If anyone else has confirmation of this, please post! :)

--Both are Believers with OBVIOUS anointing in their lives.
--United in purpose in the natural but more importantly, in the spiritual.
--They meet in miraculous circumstances that could NOT have happened without the Holy Spirit orchestrating it.
--At least one (possibly both) had their life miraculously saved (ie, if not for the Lord, he/she should be dead).
--At least one (possibly both) has a prophetic gifting.
--Both carry a warrior mindset for both the natural, but again, more importantly for the spiritual.
--Very humble people.
--Hero and Heroine from an unlikely place or profession.
--Both love much because the Lord has forgiven them much.
--Transformative. Basically, the marriage is a testimony of the Lord's power to deliver, heal, redeem, and reconcile. Examples: both always wanted children and had been unsuccessful until now; two former homosexuals marry; a modern-day Boaz redeems a single mom, Ruth.
--A constant uphill battle to maintain the relationship (heavy Satanic attack, thus why both are of a warrior mindset).
--Unconventional, materially poor, but spiritually very rich.
--Deep, very intimate.
--Not for the faint of heart.

These marriages will be "marriage as it should have been." Men will be men. Women will be women. And children will be children. All as the Lord intended them to be. Together the couple will do MUCH more than they could do apart and it will be very obvious to all. The purpose of these marriages is first, attend to His Business within His Kingdom; second, to draw others to the Lord, and third, to fulfill the desires of the hearts of His Children (you still get gifts from God during the End Times!). There's more but I think you get the gist of it. Anyone else?

The Lord is good. All the time.

I wasn't going to chime in on this word, but since several others have mentioned my post from last year, I guess I should.

When I received it last year I thought it was an imminent thing. It turned out not to be. I pulled those videos from my YouTube account because I wasn't sure I heard right because it didn't happen to me, personally, right away. For awhile there I thought my own longing got the best of me (and it did). Discernment is a skill that is learned in motion, like riding a bike.

I still believe that our Father will arrange this for His children. The original list of characteristics, may or may not be all present. If the marriage is truly a gift from our Father, then there will be no doubt and no stopping it. We will need hope in these times, these marriages will give others the courage to believe in love again. In these dark days, the love of many will grow cold, so to see true love stand will be a great witness (think the red rose in winter from Snow White). There is a millennial reign after all of the bad and the restoration that comes with it (think Sam from Lord of the Rings). Families will once again be backbone of community. And all of us bound together in brotherly love thru our Father who so richly loves us.

Ironically, since I had that word, I have lost count of how many people in my day to day life who swore they would never consider marriage who are once again daring to believe. Perhaps if you're reading this, you too were called as I was to declare that love is true and it is beautiful and it is real and above all, it is love that will conquer the darkness and heal.

It's all about perseverance. Finish the race. Believe, stand, don't settle, and keep going before Him like the insistent widow. Things are NOT as He intended them to be at the moment. But He promised restoration, to redeem the time. He will deliver.

Glynda Lomax said...

PatriotGal - I definitely believe you heard very clearly from the Lord on the Power Couples word - many people I have told about it read it and said they bore witness in their spirit as well, and mine definitely does!

Hugs to you, Sis!

Glynda

Deirdre said...

Could this also be 'friends'. FATHER has brought a very special sister in my life that is so much like a sister and best friend. We encourage each other in the LORD and also have found that we study the same Scriptures at the same time sometimes.

Demita said...

Very encouraging Thank you. Thank you to patriot gal as well.
