“DO NOT FEAR ANY OF those things you are about to suffer. Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 On my run last week, the Lord began speaking to me about the separation process of the church. The church is full of sheep and goats, wheat and chaff. The shaking that’s occurring is going to intensify.
What I heard the Spirit speak to me was very stern and clear. There is a clear marker and indicator: fear. Those who are operating according to the spirit of fear will not make it. Scripture declares that in the end of times and last days events that “men’s hearts shall fail them for fear”. Fear is a real and powerful demonic spirit. Fear is at work among the brethren. Fear is motivating people to neglect the church.
Fear is producing a spirit of reliance on other things- good health, government, job security, provision, etc. instead of reliance squarely set on the Lord Jesus to provide these things. Jehovah Jirah, my Provider. This spirit of fear is separating people from people and calling it “love”. Fear displays to an all powerful God that you do not fully trust and rely on Him. I heard His voice declare: “fear is a separating marker, a marker of the chaff”. “Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares (chaff) and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:30
How is it there are so many in ignorance of the demonic spirit that’s at work? A deep spiritual fog of deception is covering the earth. Fear is causing a blindness to God’s Word. So many have already fallen away from Biblical faith. Years of lukewarmness and the false social justice, secular humanism doctrine are displaying its fruit.
Salvation is not what you said or did years ago, it’s what you say and do right now. It doesn’t matter how you start- it’s how you finish. He that endures to the end shall be saved. “But the cowardly (fearful), unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”” Revelation 21:8 “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”” II Timothy 2:19 #runyourrace
