I HEARD THE VOICE of the Lord say to me in the middle of the night, “The world is being groomed”. Grooming is the predatory act of maneuvering another individual into a position that makes them more isolated, dependent, likely to trust, and more vulnerable to abusive behavior.
The enemy is at work deceptively creeping in to our minds and hearts through the use of fear and the media to isolate us, commercials are priming you, “stay six feet away”, “someone might be an asymptomatic carrier”, “you are killing my grandma”. We are being groomed to view others as a threat to our lives so that we would come to depend on the governing bodies and trust that they exist to “care for us” and their decisions are about what’s “best” for us.
The spirit of this age is seeking to dehumanize people so that you will view others only as a thing taking up space, not unlike the Jews in Nazi Germany. Grooming presents a false message of love and care. This is how the enemy works. People through fear and/or anger and frustration are attacking other people who do not acquiesce to this grooming process. Tensions are high. Conflict is continuous. Emotions are raging out of control.
The media spins tales of deceit, twisting and manipulating the truth, or just plain omitting it. Censorship of those who speak out is rampant. We are ripe for disaster. A kingdom divided cannot stand. If you see these things, you know they must take place. Biblical prophecy demands it. But you don’t have to go the way of the world. God’s message of hope has stood the test of time and He is faithful. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. You don’t have to acquiesce to the narrative.
Here’s what the Spirit keeps showing me: its VITALLY important to not forsake the gathering of the brethren. This is your main artery to the Body. You need the fellowship, preaching, correction, encouragement; but more so than ever you need the human touch. “Greet one another with a holy kiss”. “Lay hands on the sick and they will recover”. “Wash each other’s feet”. “The Father saw him from a distance and ran to embrace him”. “And He took the children in arms and laid His hands on them to bless them”. “Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him”.
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJVGod has called me as a watchman. Here’s your warning. The Day is approaching. Take His Word seriously. It’s the difference between life and death. #runyourrace
