This Shall Be A Year of Turning
The Lord had been silent for a couple of weeks and I was making coffee one day when He began to speak this word to me for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
This year will be a year of great change for My people. I am calling you out. My people have remained hidden but no more. I am calling you to witness for Me, to repent on behalf of your cities, your nations, to cry out to Me for mercy for My judgments are falling and you will see them increase this year. Nations that have turned from Me shall suffer great loss. Nations that refuse to know Me, greater still.
This shall be a year of turning.
In my spirit I saw a sifting taking place. Everything that was sifted went either left or right. In the spirit I knew every person would either get better - closer to the Lord - or worse - more in the world, because of great adversity that is coming.
My people will either turn to Me or from Me as adversity increases in the earth. Some of you are ready for what is coming, most are not. Readiness in your spirits consists of coming before Me daily in repentance, seeking My face, seeking My will in all things. Abiding in Me.
Most of you abide in the world and visit Me. I desire you do the reverse. In what is coming, the world cannot save you. It has become a snare to you, My people, for you do not see through its embellishments to the one who tempts you with worldly things.
As I was thinking about what a strange word embellishments was for the Lord to use, He reminded me of a vision He gave me back in about 2000 that I call the Conveyer Belt Vision, where He showed me that what people were driving to was what they thought would make them happy, and how Satan was behind it and destruction awaited them at the end of the conveyor belt.
Later, I looked up the word embellish in the dictionary, and found it made perfect sense. Here is what it said: 'to decorate or adorn; to improve by adding details, OFTEN FICTITIOUS.
In this coming year, many who are prepared will be placed on the forefront (I knew He meant into ministries when He said this).
These are those who have submitted to My preparation and refinement for years and have passed the test and been found faithful. I shall now greatly reward you for your efforts to be and stay in My will for your lives.
For those who have refused, there will be further testing. Some of you will suffer greatly because you did not obey Me when you knew I was calling you. (I sensed the Lord's anger here) You thought to yourselves, "Let someone else do it," and so your brothers and sisters have a heavier load. You expect Me to bless you in spite of your disobedience but you shall now pay the price.
Everything you have, I have given you, yet you refuse Me. If you have your health, it is by My decree. If you are prospering, I have ordained it. If your family is well, I have blessed them. Yet you take your ease and leave the load for someone else to carry. This year you shall feel My hand of judgment upon you for your disobedience. My blessings shall no longer rest on those who refuse to share the load.
For those of you who have given, I have seen your every sacrifice and you will now start to see tangible rewards for your obedience to Me. As you see others decrease in adversity, I will spare you and I will bless you. And I shall increase you miraculously. And you shall marvel and praise My Holy Name even more. And you shall know that My hand of blessing is truly upon you. Many of you have refused to stop giving even when you yourself were in need. You will receive the greatest blessings of all, you shall know My glory.
Eye has not seen nor ear heard the blessings I have in store for My people in this time. Yes, there will be disasters. Yes, there will be hardship, (At this point I saw in the spirit a group of many people covered in what appeared to be a wall or wing of feathers) but My glory shall outshine it all.
My children, you do not know the greatness of the hour in which you live. Your minds cannot comprehend all that is about to happen in the earth and in the heavenlies. Keep My word and My Son's Name ever before you in this time. It shall lead you and guide you into all you need to know. There is much more coming in the world than My children realize but when you abide in Me, you are always prepared, for I Myself shall cause you to be ready. I Myself shall bring you all you need. There is no need for fear of what is to come.
Keep your eyes on Me. Do you think I will not care for My own? Do you think if you give to My work I will let you be without? If you are about your father's business, do you think I will leave you in lack?
No, My children, for I am faithful to watch over My word and perform it at all times. Indeed as you sow into My kingdom, I shall sow back into your lives all you can ever need and more.
Be found in Me as My judgments fall. Be found obeying Me in all things and walking in My ways. Do not be found in the world, but in Me. Abide in My word and obey it and you shall not be in the world.
Separate yourselves to what I have called you to do and seek My face daily. Repent daily for your sins. Seek to please Me in all things. Do not follow the ways of the world but be found in My ways.
Luke 11:33: No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
John 15:5-6: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (6) If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
1 John 2:15-17: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. (17) And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
I Cor. 2:9: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Matt. 6:27-29: Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? (28) And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: (29) And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Psalm 9:17: The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
