The Meat Grinder Vision

I was in worship and a vision appeared to me of something that resembled a meat grinder with a funnel on top. I saw a man go into the top of the funnel and drop down into the meat grinder, and it began grinding. I began to see small pieces of hard substances to fly out of the grinder as it was grinding. I saw that the man was going through terrible pain and adversity, and many difficult situations while he was in the grinder. Then I heard the words, “Threshing Floor.”

I saw that none of the fluffy teachings the man had heard could withstand the terrible pressure of the meat grinder, and they quickly flew away out the top. As I watched, I was shown the people who were in the meat grinder were those who had laid down the most for the Kingdom of God. When the grinder stopped, the man dropped out of the chute at the bottom, but he looked different – he was stronger, wearing very shiny armor, and he was smiling and really happy. I then heard the word, “Equipped.”

Off to the side, I could see others who had laid down less were also going through things. I saw some being pounded by meat tenderizing mallets, some very hard, and some not so hard. They would cry out as the mallet came down on them, but the gentle hand wielding the mallet continued to pound. I knew in my spirit when I saw this that things were being worked out of them by the pounding.  I felt strongly the Lord had something to say to us about what He was showing me, and I began to pray that He would reveal it. This is what He said.

Yes, My daughter, many of My children who have been called to My kingdom work are now on My threshing floor. I am separating from them all that does not please Me, and making them meet for My use.

These are those who have submitted themselves wholly to Me for My purposes, and great shall be their reward, for the works they shall now do shall glorify My son in the earth.

A time of great darkness approaches in the earth when no man shall know or understand all that is occurring. Few will see My purposes in what is to come, only My children who have walked with Me through seasons of darkness will understand and know how to acclimate themselves in that time. In that time, there shall be great turmoil, great need, and much uncertainty. It shall be the darkest of times.

I shall give My children who are walking close to Me eyes to see in the darkness. I shall give them great and mighty revelations that they may survive what is to come. I shall provide for them and protect them and keep all that is theirs, that they may tell others of My great faithfulness.

There is nothing you need do, My children, to prepare for what is coming, for I am able to provide all you need. Walk with Me. Seek My face daily. Do not neglect your time with Me or be led astray by the distractions of the world, for the world cannot save you from what is to come.

Go forth, speak My word. Tell others of your God who is mighty to save and deliver. Watch and pray, for this time quickly approaches.

II Timothy 2:20-21: But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

Mark 16:15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 13:33: Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Isaiah 55:6-7: Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

I Am Stirring Up Nations

I am stirring up nations to fight against nations and peoples to war within themselves. I am stirring up households where unbelief remains. I will cause My people to choose Me or choose the world by increasing the strife among them.

My people have been lax in their choices to serve Me, preferring comfort and routine to zeal for My house, so I am stirring them up.

I will cause you to choose Me, My people, or be lost to Me forever by the way you choose in what is soon to come.

Nation shall rise up against nation and groups of nations against a nation and I shall cause you to choose.

What you see will strike fear in your heart yet you need fear only Me and My mighty hand of judgment. Choose Me and My ways and live.

As turmoil increases around you, you must choose Me. As persecutions arise, you must choose Me and My ways over your own. There is no room for compromise on the narrow path. Those who do not know Me will not survive what is coming for long, for there shall be no earthly remedy to help them.

Many will see things they have not seen before and fear, for this is a time like none that has come before it. Truly I tell you, great fear shall rise up in men's hearts in what is to come for methods and foundations gone before shall fail them.

As turmoil in the earth increases, persecution shall arise like never before. A people shall rise against My people to do them injustice. My people shall cry out to Me and I shall deliver them speedily.

Consider your ways, My people. Consider well the choices you have made and are making for this shall come upon you quickly. Those who are not rooted and grounded in Me shall be blown about by events in the earth but My people shall stand firm.

Consider your ways and choose wisely for you live in a time like no other and these choices cannot be undone. Many shall perish suddenly in events coming and there shall be no remedy for them. Those who are not with Me are against Me.

Be found in Me. Be found in My ways. Be not afraid, only believe.

Romans 11:21 - For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Ephesians 6:13-15: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (14) Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (15) And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Matthew 10:34-37: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Luke 21:26: Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

John 15:18: If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

II Timothy 3:12: Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

I Will Give You the Keys

I  was in prayer about a type of ministry I desire to see spring up in the place where I live when the Lord began to speak to me and show me some of the reasons why He called me to the city He called me to move to here in Texas, when He spoke this word to me.

My people do not realize the importance of the places in which I have placed them in this time. They know not the plans I have for them for they are busy seeking about them for provision, provision which they need not search for if only they will seek My face instead.

My people, the enemy has deceived you into thinking you must make your own way in this world when I have a better plan for you. I have placed you where you are for a season, for a reason, and that reason will be revealed to you if you will only seek Me for it.

If you ignore My plan for you in that place, My blessings will not flow readily to you and you will miss some of what I have for you. Seek Me for your purpose. Seek Me about your destiny. Seek Me, for I shall be found by you and I will reveal to you what you need to know. Do not go seeking others for this knowledge, but seek Me and trust Me to tell you in My ways and times.

You feel empty and lost because you are not walking in My ways and reasons for where you are. You feel alone for I have you alone so you will more readily seek My face.

Seek Me, for I shall be found by you. Do not look to the world for your answers. Do not seek out people to give you the reasons but seek Me, your Maker, for My plan, for only I know truly what I have called each of you to do. I, only, hold the keys to your destiny.

Seek Me, and I will give you the keys to unlock your destiny in Me.

Psalm 46:10:  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Eccl. 3:1: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Jeremiah 29:13: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Matthew 7:7: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
