There is a way that seems right to a man
In his own eyes, in his own eyes
But his motives are carefully weighed by the Lord
There is no disguise, no disguise
And when all is said and done
There’ll be no place to hide, no place to run
For He will burn away
The stubble, the wood, the hay
And all that shall remain is what is real
Ev’ry thought, ev’ry deed, ev’ry plan
Will be tried in fire, refined in fire
All to turn back the stubborn heart of man
It is His desire, His desire
And when all is said and done
We’ll be the glorified work of the Son
Once worthless lumps of clay
Now treasured vessels prepared for the day
When we shall reign eternally
With Him we shall reign eternally……
Proverbs 14:12There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.
Treasures in Jars of Clay
2 Co 4: 6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.
8 We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair
9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed
10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.…
God is coming in like a wrecking ball to the Church. Remember when DJT was nicknamed “The Wrecking Ball?”
Well, I had prophesied some years ago that we need to watch what happens in the political arena because it is going to happen to God’s people. It’s happening. I had prophesied some years ago that once the first domino falls, get ready, the rest are coming fast. These dominoes are systems and things we hold tightly to. Don’t be attached to them. They are going away, whatever it is we hold tightly to.
And it isn’t over. And it is just beginning for the ecclesia.
Wood, hay, and stubble. There are some things more valuable.
But you say, “God does not take away, He only gives and adds”
Tell that to Job. Tell that to the disciples. Tell that to the early church.
But you say “If He gives a gift, it is irrevocable”
Did He give a gift for you to make an idol out of it? Did you become attached to the gift or the Giver of it?
But you say “The Gates of Hell with not prevail against the church”
Have you stood against the Gates of Hell yet?
The Gates of Hell will not prevail against the ecclesia – against those who are blessed by Revelation of the Son via the Father. Blessed are you Simon Bar Jonah for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but My Father which is in heaven.
It’s all happening so fast. If He is not Jehovah-Jireh, your Provider and I mean, truly your Provider, that which you have will be taken from you. He will blow what little you do have until you KNOW Him intimately as Provider. That can only come by revelation of the Father.
Is He your peace? If you do not know Him as Jehovah-Shalom, your Peace, I mean, truly your Peace, what little peace you do have will be removed from you.
He is coming in like a wrecking ball. All that will remain is what is REAL.
Lord, how my enemies have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
2 Many are saying of my soul,
“There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah
3 But You, Lord, are a shield around me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
4 I was crying out to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah
5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.
7 Arise, Lord; save me, my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek;
You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord;
May Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah
Col 3:3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
“By discovering our enemies’ dispositions, and remaining invisible ourselves, we can keep our forces concentrated while the enemy’s must be divided.” Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Your enemy is not people. Your enemy is Satan. He goes about LIKE A roaring lion (not IS A) seeking to whom he may devour. His names are Lucifer, Adversary, Angel of Light and he is your opponent.
Do you want to know why you keep being attacked? Why do so many rise against you? You say “I must be doing something right.” “I must be a threat to the enemy’s camp.”
The Lord says you are not hidden. Your enemy is able to discover your disposition!
Because you tell him!
Definition of disposition
1a : prevailing tendency, mood, or inclination
b : temperamental makeup
c : the tendency of something to act in a certain manner under given circumstances
The discovering of your disposition is not the time when attack comes. It is what comes beforehand. Your enemy lies in wait. He discovers. He studies. He takes note. He comes at an opportune time. It is almost certainly when you are not expecting.
Who you like on facebook! Check!
Who you heart! Check!
All your rants! Check!
Who you support! Check!
Your newsfeed shares! Check!
The places you check in! Check!
Who you let in as “friend”! Check!
When you are seen as active. Check!
When you are noticed as “in the chat”! Check!
Those are obvious. But he uses other things too.
The FB Factcheckers. They may mean nothing to you, but they are used by the enemy because it is still recorded what you deleted after it was texted. As you type it out then backspace to remove. What you send then unsend.
Then, you speak something without posting it, and it appears in your newsfeed. THEN it appears in your email inbox having nothing to do with social media at all.
“But though oH Lord art a shield for me!”
Why would you need a shield if you are giving your disposition away?
1 John 3:7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.
You need a shield when you have an enemy who wants to take you down. You do not need a shield if you are walking right into his camp and saying
“Here I am!”
You are in warfare. Like it or not. It is what you signed up for when you enlisted.
Learn the playbook. Your enemy knows his.
Why do the nations rage?
Why do they plot in vain?
Why do they come together?
What do they hope to gain?
“Let’s bring division
So they’ll not stand
Then with this power
We’ll dominate lands”
He who sits High
Laughs a hearty laugh
His voice causes displeasure
Nations feel His wrath
But for those whose eyes are on Him
Rejoice with Him and Sing
For you know that out of Zion
Comes your Groom, your King!
Make yourselves ready
He is coming!
The kingdoms plot a vain thing
Against the Lord’s Annointed
Against the Coming King
Make yourselves ready
Is He the only One
For Whom your heart yearns?
Before The Glory comes
The fire burns
So now I prophesy, I decree
What I heard Him speak to me
I’ll give you the nations
For Your reward
Break them with an iron rod
Rule them by the sword
Dash them into pieces
Bring valleys high and mountains low
“Oh kings and judges of the earth
What have you now to show?
Kiss the Son lest He be angry
And you perish in the way
Burn up your worthless idols
Before the approaching Day
Serve the Lord with fear and trembling
Rejoice! Oh barren! Sing!
For fire comes before His Glory
And prophets before the King
His ministers are as flames of fire
Preparing the way for the King”
Are you led by? Are you driven?
Timing is everything
Timing is key
Shall we play a game?
How about a nice game of chess?
You cannot play global thermonuclear war if you have not sat patiently learning the game of chess.
Moves and countermoves.
What happened the last six years? The seventh is upon us. What is seven? Think ahead.
If you are being led, you will find peace and patience in the wait while you receive direction for the next strategic move. You will learn skill and focus, and receive wisdom and revelation. You will apply power and might.
If you are driven, you will choose Global ThermoNuclear Warfare first.
Do you not see? Do you not hear? The sound of the advancing hordes approaching? Are you not watching?
You see the board, you even know the pathways but you have not sat long enough to learn the skill of the chess game.
Knight to bishop Four
You know enough to move the pieces but not enough to win the game
You have not anticipated your opponents moves three steps before he makes them
See beyond the white knights on the chessboard
See beyond the bishops and rooks
See beyond knowing how to move and manipulate the board
How can you play GTNW if you have not learned from your chess mistakes?
THIS is the time and season we are in.
Learn the STRATEGY and not just the bored/board.
Moves and Countermoves.
From a 2012 post I posted: Whatchasee whatcha see whatcha see whatcha see? Seems to be what the birds are asking this morning.
Some heard birds.
I heard the voice of the Lord.
But the king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up from the earth.”
And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”
And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see a boiling pot, facing away from the north.”
Then the Lord said to me, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “Figs: the good figs are very good, and the bad ones, very bad, which cannot be eaten due to rottenness.”
And the Lord said to me, “What do you see, Amos?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said, “Behold I am about to put a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel. I will not spare them any longer
And He said, “What do you see, Amos?” And I said, “A basket of summer fruit.” Then the Lord said to me, “The end has come for My people Israel. I will not spare them any longer.
And he said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it;
And he said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits.”
Without explanation, this is just a person seeing things. There is a spirit of Wisdom and Revelation.
Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch from his roots will bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
3 And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make decisions by what His ears hear;
but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.
5 Righteousness will be his belt
and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
No longer will the prophets get by telling you what they see or hear. Wisdom must be released.
Fear of the Lord.
This is the fullness of the Spirit of the Lord.
