Mary Clark - The Gavel







Once My gavel comes down it will be all over. There will be no second chances. All will come to a screeching halt. I tell you this, beloved, because time is of the essence, it is running out. Speak My words of truth. Stand strong in the coming days. Do not fear. I am with you. I am upholding you in the circumstances that are about to take place. I AM your God.

Those who choose to serve the Almighty, giving their heart to Me, putting their trust in Me, will be saved. But for those who choose to serve the world, turning their backs on Me, looking to the world for heart pleasure will lose out, lose out sorely. This is truth. This is fact. Nothing can change this truth. Nothing can change the timing of the events that are about to take place. Nothing! So I say to you stand up for My truth. Move forward in eager anticipation. You chose well, beloved. Yes! You have chosen to serve the Almighty God. You chose well!!!

Susan O'Marra - The Path Is Narrowing

Pressing Toward the Goal blog - prophetic word by Susan O'Marra


The Path is narrowing and few notice.

Few even look at where they are walking, and fewer still even think twice about their next step. So many of My People walk where it is convenient, popular, safe, and easy to see. They would rather be led by their minds and their physical senses than to abandon them, and follow Me. But that day is now changing for the path is now climbing and narrowing in this hour. Few will now walk with Me who will not embrace the changes that now come with the climb.

To follow Me, one must put aside all weights, cares, sins, mindsets, fears, plans, friends, family, and their own desires. So few can completely give Me these things. So few can walk away from their own plans, visions, businesses, ministries, and training and leave it all behind to follow me. So few.


To lay aside all weights means to cast off everything that so easily besets you and causes you to stumble, and to be overburdened, and to abandon all things to My Care.

Allow Me to carry your daily load and to walk with you throughout your day. No longer allow things to pile up on you, and make you take your eyes off of Me. Stress rules over you when you carry that which I have not given you to carry. You must guard yourself more diligently.



To lay aside all cares means to be watchful of your heart.

For the cares of this world, riches, and the flesh will war with your mind and heart. It will cause you to compromise and to stumble in your integrity, to satisfy the longing burning within you. Cares will cause you to begin to worship other things, if you do not guard your eyes and hearts. I am Faithful and True. I will care for you, and be your Care.



To lay aside all sin, means to continually pick up your cross and follow Me. You cannot be carrying your cross and sinning against me at the same time. You must first put down the cross in order to run and sin. Consider your ways, and come back to me.

You must return to your first Love, and do not give your allegiance to another, for I Am your Lord. If you truly Love Me, then you must follow Me. To lay aside your mindsets means to bring your plans, ideas, all of your earthly understanding, educational training, and self-life, even your understanding of who I am, and crucify it upon the altar of surrender, and then yield to My Will. You must freely lay your will down, in order to embrace Mine. You cannot serve two opinions, or two masters. You cannot serve the world and live In My House. Either you fully embrace Me or you don’t. 



To lay aside all fears means to put under your feet everything that controls you, manipulates you, terrorizes you, and overpowers you.


Fear is only a False Reality Appearing Real. The enemy deceives many of My people through fear, and controls them by it’s bondage. Fear is nothing but Faith improperly placed outside of Me, as it is doubt and unbelief. They doubt that I am unable to care for them, and have unbelief that what I will do, will truly work. It in effect, says, I Am not good enough for them. Fear robs My People, and isolates them, and causes them to abort their destiny. Fear is the thief that kills the seeds of Hope and Life. You must put them under your feet, and rise above the thief, and take back what is rightfully yours, or you will perish in the desert places alone. To lay aside all plans means to see that you can no longer walk alone, and without My Headship. You then yield your affairs to My Leading, and you allow Me to bring you to where I am going, and not to where you want to be. When I am made the True Head, then all fear, pressure, and confusion leaves you, and you then see the path ahead as one of Hope and not trial. I created you, and know your path, and all things concerning you, so I know just what you need and when. Trust Me.



To lay aside friends means to not abandon those around you, but to submit your associations to My direction and guidance.

Few ask Me about their fellowships and friends, and few even think that it matters. You are, or become like, those who you allow to influence you. So many of Mine are unequally yoked and are defiled because they did not inquire of Me first. They get entangled in the affairs of the world by yoking with the world, and they do not guard themselves. When My People take their eyes off of Me, then they will place them on someone else. Then the bondage begins, because they took their trust and devotion off of Me and put it upon men and popularity. My People cannot be pressured by other people into doing things, if their hearts are in My Hands. It is only when they take their hearts out of My Hands, that the enemy then can come and entice their hearts, and allure them into sin and compromise with others.



To lay aside family means to walk each individually with Me, working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Many of My People are controlled by other’s fears, pride, and prejudices. Families that do not walk in their Faith in Me together, will pull at each other, and manipulate to protect their own selfish desires. Anyone who chooses to allow even a family member the place of their heart over Me, is not worthy of Me. I Am the only one who sits upon the throne of your heart. I gave you your family to love, honor, and cherish, but only as you all follow Me. Nothing and No one will come between Me and My Bride.



Lastly, to lay aside all desires is to abandon your future totally to Me, embracing My Will, and allowing Me to decide what is best for you. Few can. Very few trust Me. Few know Me and My Love for them, for if they truly did, then they would run to Me and give Me everything.

There is no lack in My House. I care for My Children. I want the best for them and yet, My people choose to go their own way, as they do not think My Way is good enough. They know better. So I have to let them go.

I will not force My Own to follow Me.

I will not force My Own to Love Me.

I will not violate their free will and choices.

My Sheep hear My Voice, and they come to Me, and sit at My Feet, and they will not follow another.

The path is indeed narrowing, and to walk on it now, means you must now begin to climb. You cannot hold onto anything and follow Me. You must let go and trust Me; For the path has begun to ascend to My Holy Hill, and only those with clean hands and pure hearts can ascend My Holy Hill.

It is time to climb.

A VERY NARROW PATH
(vision Holly Cawfield  2008)


I was standing under a maple tree. A low branch filled with leaves was partly obscuring what was beyond but when I leaned forward to see past the leaves I saw a dirt path on which stood a very still figure. He was dressed in a long, white robe with a hood and a gold braided belt tied around his waist. I kept looking, not making a sound or a move and neither did he. It was almost as if He was frozen in place.

Then I decided to step out from under the branch and it was that which seemed to cause him to turn toward me. As he did so, I realized it was Jesus.

The He said to me,
“Will you follow Me?”

“Yes,” I replied.

So I went over to the dirt path which was extremely narrow and started following Him as He began to walk. On the left side of the path there was an incredibly steep drop and given my fear of heights I chose not to look down. On the right side there was a grass shoulder but not particularly wide, with a few rocks and weeds and then a hill that rose up just as sharply as the drop on the left side.

He walked around a bit of a bend and suddenly the path was on the side of a mountain with a very long drop below and to my right was basically a wall of rock.

I said in a very shaken voice, “Jesus, you know I’m afraid of heights.”

“Do you trust Me to lead you safely?” He asked.

I did answer ‘yes’ but my legs were shaking so badly I was having trouble putting one foot in front of the other. He moved very slowly and I knew He was doing this because He really did understand how each step was so frightening to me.

“What are we doing here, Lord?” I asked Him.

“Tell them I will be asking them to do things which will frighten them but I want them to look past their fear and see Me leading them. My path has become very narrow but if they will simply keep their eyes on Me, I will lead them safely.”

 

Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And because God raised Christ from the dead and gave Him great glory, your faith and hope can be placed confidently in God. 1 Peter 1: 21


Ron McGatlin - The Greatest Shift and the Next Two to Three Years



The Greatest Shift and the Next Two to Three Years
By Ron McGatlin
January 2013
Many of God’s people are soon to experience a strong sense that our entire lives have been moving toward this season of worldwide shifting of life from one existence to another very different reality. It will feel like we were born and prepared all of our lives for this time.
It can accurately be said that this world will never again be what it has been in history and as we have known it in our lifetime. Knowledge of the past history of the world would not prepare us for the unprecedented works of God on earth. The entire planet and all that is on it will be forever changed from what it has been and is now to what it will be.
The Voice of the Scoffer
The scoffer will say nothing really changes and the world will go on just as it has been for millennia. People come, and people go. Nations arise, and nations fall. Wars are won and lost. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and the moon keeps its cycle, and nothing really changes. The world just goes on as it has been. Man in his limited natural mentality without God develops many philosophies and platitudes of earthly wisdom to placate human emptiness and futile existence.
Soon the voice of the scoffer will be heard no more. That which has been ignored and rejected will arise to the forefront. The failed pursuit of mankind to rule independently without God while trusting in himself and his natural strengths of intellectual prowess has built world systems fit only for destruction.
Abrupt Awakening
Abrupt awakening to the reality of the kingdom of God and the one true King, Christ Jesus, is imminent. All that lifts itself against God and His Christ will perish from the earth. The fire of God from heaven, the all-consuming fire of God, will devour the stubble of man’s foolish workings and all that is not of God in His earth.
The beginnings of these extreme events over the next few years coupled with the outpouring of the miraculous light of God working through His forerunners will awaken all of God’s people to receive the greatest shift of all time.
The Greatest Shift
This shift in and among the people of God is the disconnecting from the natural world order and the connecting to Spirit world order. The Spirit God manifesting on earth in the mature sons of God will open the way for multitudes to move from a natural based way of life to a supernatural spiritually based way of life in Father God by Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit of God. The all-powerful, all-loving, and all-wise Spirit God abiding in and with mankind will bring all things into the perfect order of God on earth as it is in heaven. Man’s connection to and dependency upon the natural fallen world order will be forever severed. Mankind will again take our rightful place of dominion on earth bringing the order of God from heaven into all life on Planet Earth.
The Next Two to Three Years
The next two to three years is the time of inner spiritual preparation to endure the extreme intervention of God upon the earth that is to come. In this brief period of final preparation, the light of God will increase rapidly among and within God’s people. At the same time evil darkness will continue to increase among those who do not seek God.
During this time of preparation, spots of sporadic manmade and natural disasters will occur at a record pace that will serve as preparation of God’s people for the cataclysmic events to come. However, in general, it will be a prosperous two to three years for God’s people. It will be a time of spiritual and natural opportunity to be adjusted and moved about. Alliances and connections will be changed during this time of preparation and many geographical locations will be changed as well.
Both from natural circumstances and from Holy Spirit unction, there will be intense division and separations among people and groups. And by the same forces there will be people and groups joined together in bonds of the love of God becoming as one loving family. Supernatural spiritual love from God will bring complete unity and agreement among the people of God. At the same time supernatural spiritual division and separation from many previous alliances with individuals and groups will occur.
Entering the Time of the End of One World and the Beginning of Another
Beyond the season of preparation, there will be a progressive increase of intensity of cataclysmic apocalyptic events that will change the face of the earth. The events described in “The Book of Revelation” will progressively come to pass and as written the world’s population will be significantly reduced in number. Everything that exalts itself against God will be brought down.
God’s remnant people will be pure and holy as Christ Jesus fully abides in them and the love of God binds them together. Supernatural miraculous works will be the way of life among them. All the world and nature will begin to be healed at the hand of Christ Jesus in His people. The New Jerusalem lifestyle will be the order and the way of the people with their God ruling and reigning on earth. The earth and the people will be a new creation filled with the light of God. All things will be under the feet of the Lord. All things will be gathered in Christ, and the glory of God shall fill the earth.
All this while the world endures extreme chaos as the fire of God cleanses the world of the works and ways of the evil one and all that follow his ways. Revivalist and harvesters, get ready and step out now! Multitudes will turn to God with their whole hearts, and yet many will curse God and perish in the same fire of God.
The Kingdom is First Within   
Today it is possible to experience the fullness of the things to come within our hearts and minds. In fact if the kingdom is not experienced within, it will not be brought forth in the world. The purity and holiness of Christ Jesus can fully abide in His people now. Individually and in groups, it is the will of God that the fullness of the kingdom of God with all of its love and power become the way of our lives now. Miracles of healing, deliverance, and whatever supernatural work God desires is reality within His people. Life without stress free from covetousness, greed, or lust or any other darkness is God’s desire and plan for His people now.
Walking in the Spirit and becoming one with Christ Jesus as He abides in us and we abide in Him truly causes us to live in this world as Christ and not as mere men. Through the preparation time as we practice walking in the Spirit, we are crucified with Christ and raised again with Him. The resurrection life of Christ now lives in us as we live and walk in the Spirit.
This is the time to move with confidence into the preparation of fully living and walking in the Spirit of God. It is not a time to wait for someone else to lead us or show us the way. By the Holy Spirit we can move with assurance into intimate oneness and commune with Christ Jesus and the Father.
We must now develop a complete trust in the leadership of Christ in us by the Holy Spirit. All other allegiances and dependencies must become secondary under the authority and rule of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. Those who live by the Spirit will live in God. Those who live by the flesh or natural fallen world wisdom will perish.
Seek the Lord now while he may be found, and do the work of God now, for the night comes and will be endured before the dawning of the day arises upon the whole earth. The glorious kingdom that now abides within will explode from the pure holy people in whom Christ dwells to fill the world, in the dawning of that great day beyond the soon coming season of darkness upon the earth.
Behold the Lamb of God! Arise, shine, for your light has come. The kingdom of God is at hand.

Olivia Reitz Long - Adjustment Time: Coming to Closure


Pressing Toward the Goal - Olivia Reitz Long prophetic word

Adjustment Time - Coming to Closure

Olivia Reitz Long

"This is what the Lord Almighty says: Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build the house so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored, says the Lord. You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why? declares the Lord Almighty, because of My house which remains a ruin while each of you is busy with his own house." Haggai 1:7-9

"The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. - Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 14:12, 14

IT IS TIME ... time for the I AM to move on with My plans and purposes. I have had My people in a season of adjustment. I have challenged each one going by My Name... I have given warnings both in the natural and in the spiritual...warnings that said: It is time for an attitude adjustment. Some have truly heard and have made the necessary adjustments but for many, they go on as before still believing all is well. Unfortunately the sands of time  in My spiritual hourglass for this adjustment season are running out. For those who are still pre-occupied with their own individual kingdoms, seeking domination over others, seeking identities for themselves, into competition with others, having misplaced priorities and purposes - the last grains of sand are trickling down and when they are gone, there will be no turning back.

Adjustment time, another transition period for My own by My Time Clock. As all transition periods it had a beginning and it has an end and the end is now in sight. As in all transition periods I have brought to your life there have been set rules by the I AM in which you are to live by and to obey and this season has been no different. Many have heeded this adjustment time and many have not - now this season is in the last seconds of My Time and then all will move into My final destiny for the world. During this adjustment time much grace has been given, an extension in grace to truly walk My walk in all ways, not as you speak. The night is far spent - the day is at hand! Gross darkness will come upon your lands. As the last sands trickle away - those who have not adhered to My adjustment season, your next season and time is fixed! There will be no going back for a second chance.  For My Faithful Ones, your next season and time is also fixed!  All will be in readiness for both sides and will not be changed once the sand is emptied. Cause and effect, it happens in the natural world and it happens in the Spiritual. My Kingdom purposes shall be done...

My remnant shall arise, My Faithful Ones shall come forth! It is the last hour, you are entering into the final days and you are entering  into what I have said I had for you -  My promises fulfilled. You are now eagerly awaiting those sands to finally trickle out for you knowing your time is nigh. Faithful, you have been faithful even through rejection and persecution by your own. You have persevered and always believed in Me, even in the deepest pits of despair, for even then you have held on to the I AM. Even now many of you wonder how this will all come about but do not fear, I AM all sufficiency for you and the I AM is present with you always. Each will be touched by My hand and you will be transformed and changed by My Glory. Much will seek to detract you on this side of the final sifting but fear not for My will shall be done in your life and you will see all that was forfeited returned to you seven fold plus more! Prepare to enter into My inner chambers reserved for My Chosen Ones. The place and the way I have prepared for you and the door shall swing wide open for you to enter... My presence is upon you, My scepter, the symbol of My royal power is extended to you. I see your eagerness mounting as you now watch those final grains of sand sifting through to completion ending this long, long season.

You have been taught and prepared by My hand and you have gone through perilous times, times when even as My Faithful, you have wondered if you could dare to hope it would still come to pass... NOW, I say unto you - be on alert.... knowing that I AM Who I say I AM and will do what I have promised! I AM in control in a world out of control and your destiny In Me is sealed and will be delivered. Your intense training has given you MY heart and love for all of mankind.  As you see the last grains of sand leaving this season, it shall light a spark and this spark will turn into a blazing flame as I move you forth. No enemy can steal what I have for you for I have placed a mantle on you that NO enemy can destroy. Rejoice, again I say rejoice for ALL is under My Control and what I have purposed before the beginning of time shall be accomplished shortly. The season of adjustment is coming to closure and you are stepping into your destiny while also stepping into the final days, the destiny of the world - filled with My Glory, walking in signs and wonders, healing the sick, raising the dead and bringing in the final harvest.  Adjustment Time - Coming to Closure and now it all begins!     







Olivia Reitz Long - the Fiery Furnace


The Fiery Furnace

"Remember how the Lord your God led you 
ALL THE WAY in the desert these forty years, 
to humble you and to test you in order to know 
what was in your heart, 
whether or not you would keep His commands." 
Deut. 8:2

"But He knoweth the way that I take; 

when He hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold." 
Job 23:10


When My wilderness people, My faithful ones stood up and said NO and were determined to go all the way with Christ, you figured correctly that you would be thrown into the fiery furnace.  However, the heat has been much hotter than you had ever imagined it would be, nevertheless, what I did with Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego, I will also do for those who have allowed the affliction in the furnace.

You have suffered greatly, as you continue to "do right."  My Son was the supreme example of suffering wrong in well-doing, for though He was My Son, yet by His suffering He learned obedience ...  For the key is Obedience... You have felt the heavy weight of your cross, and at times you begged for My help, tears flowing for days, even weeks on end.  You tried reading the Word, you tried speaking scriptures.     You felt that I had forsaken you, thinking what did you do to bring such agony and despair?   For some of you, your finances have dried up, and you are in severe financial straits.  For some, health is an issue, pain being your constant companion, you need  healing.

You read the accounts in My word of Job's testing and in the end what I did for him. You read of Joseph, sold by his own brothers and attaining to the heights of power. You have read of Daniel, who had such faith, he "slept" in a den of ravenous lions.  Of Esther, who was willing to sacrifice herself for her people.   You have read about them all, but still your pain is overwhelming.  You say, yes but those were bible saints, My Beloved, they were men and women, just like you.

You have found yourself in a place where you think there is no way out, there is nothing that 'you' can do ... but AH, MY BELOVED, this is where I want you, for you will know that it is ONLY "your God" who is able to deliver you.   But even in the midst of all this pain, I have been enabling you to begin to see the world through the loving eyes of Jesus.

My wilderness people have determined to lay hold of Christ at all cost, going on with Him - and 'with that decision' -they placed themselves in the hands of the Potter.

I called you into the wilderness, but I also said "There is a Price!" And you have paid a "high" price for the anointing I have for you.  You have had to die daily, to your fears, to your control, to religion, to your reputation, - a multitude of deaths in choosing to be a true disciple of Mine.  My chosen vessels going through the crushing by the Potter's hands.   The clay being molded and remolded.

When I took you from the wheel and put you on the shelf, everything "appeared" to go wrong.   You felt that I wasn't there and you asked "Where are You, Lord?"   So much about the wilderness, you don't comprehend.  You feel alone, you once had your family and friends in support of your decision, now they don't understand.   You say: "is it me, did I hear wrong, did I make a mistake, did You really choose me Lord?" AH, My children, even the greatest, My Son, had to go through the wilderness testing.

You have now learned that it doesn't matter what man may think - or - have need of his approval, only your relationship with Me is what matters.  

FINALLY... FINALLY... you say "If I have to stay in this wilderness forever, I will" for it's only Me that you want or need.  NOW, BELOVED, NOW, I will take you out of the wilderness.   And your heart races in excitement and anticipation and you say "Let's go, I am ready!"   But to your dismay, you see what's coming next - "the firing."

Now you are in the "kiln" and you are not alone, for it's here that the impurities are taken out of My vessels - bitterness, resentment, anger, jealousy, competition, as the fire continues to get hotter and hotter.   The persecutions come - family, friends, job and even the church. But after you get out of here, you are not finished yet and you wait, once more, for the final step - "the glazing"...  

It is here, you are afraid to step out in anything for fear of judgment. Now, I begin to poke and prod, do you settle for what you have or do you want more of Me and to finish the process?   Your excitement surfaces again. Now the separation begins. I apply the glaze, and you enter "The White Hot Glory Fire", where "ALL that Can be stripped WILL be stripped."  It is here, where the coal will be placed to your lips and I bestow anointings, healings, giftings and from this whole process of death comes "resurrection."   A resurrection to move in the authority that comes from the anointing. Sending you into the world to reflect My Glory.

What I have started, I will finish. In the wilderness, you heard My promises and somehow - and sometimes you wondered how - you stuck it out, waiting for the manifestation.  Even at this time, your GOD is still in control though everything else in your life isn't. You have come to realize that you never did have a view of "My plan" for your life, until I took you into the wilderness - and you now realize it is not your humanness that will allow you to overcome, it's My Godliness.

While in the wilderness, you have truly learned how to lean on Jesus, never to be without hope, love or strength for He has become your strength.  You know, the truth of My Love, and that I Am a God who is JUST. I AM the "ultimate power and authority" and you can be positive that I "WILL" use them.

You are part of an elite group. While you have been going through the fiery furnace, you had two choices: you could quit OR you could go on to Spiritual Maturity.  You have been noticing the subtle changes that came along the way, changes in you that you never thought possible.

You pressed into your God and the people that know their God will be strong and carry out great exploits.   I AM a faithful God, and I require you to be faithful and walk humbly with Your God. Your heart cries out for the injustices you see around you and in the world.   But haven't I said that I have overcome the world?

I AM a God of justice, hating injustice, and I will use you as My instruments to seek justice and rescue the oppressed and you will be empowered to do so - reaching out to a hurting, abused and dying world.

I say to My wilderness people, My Remnant, My chosen ones - you are walking out of the furnace, without the smell of smoke upon you, led by the fourth man for I am more real and more powerful than "any" force on the face of this earth. And I am with you all the time, 'right on time.'




{"When God permits His children to go through the furnace, He keeps His eye on the clock and His hand on the thermostat." Warren Wiersbe, bible teacher/preacher.} My Brothers and Sisters - "His eye is on the clock"

Therefore, my brothers,  be all the more eager  to make your calling and election sure.

For if you do these things, you will never fail. (NIV) 2. Peter 1,10 

















Olivia Reitz Long - Look!


Pressing Toward the Goal - Olivia Reitz Long prophecy



MY GLORIOUS BELOVED - LOOK!!!

"The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom, abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon - They shall see the Glory of the Lord, and the Excellency of our God." Isaiah 35:1-2

To My Glorious Beloved, now as never before, you are "seeing" that the time is nigh upon you. You have been attentive and observing what is going on in the world, and with all that is happening around 'you'.... and with your observations, you can see that surely it is almost time for you to take your rightful place, the place that I have shown to each of you...

Though the road has seemed long and uncertain, even lifetimes of suffering ... still you have stood solid, even as I directed your life in a way, that seemed 'impossible' in your thoughts, never-the-less, you have stood faithful even when you felt you were standing on shaky ground. Even then, you could never shake My words to you of your glorious ordained destiny.

I have called you into a life of obedience, obedience to My voice and to My Spirit. I called you to be familiar with My Voice and familiar with My Spirit and His leading - and with that you know that nothing else can be a substitute.

As My Glorious Beloved, you seek Me and My ways and long to hear My voice. Now you will be My hands extended. as I AM in you, and you will speak and do what I instruct, for you only do as I do. You will hear My voice for those who cannot hear My voice. You will speak forth My voice of love, compassion, direction and correction with signs and wonders following.

You have been going through a season of distractions with a seducing spirit already at work to solicit your affections and cause you to turn, even for a moment, away from Me. My Beloved - Keep your vision 'clear', this is paramount in this season. To focus on self and the misery around you, is idolatry. Wisdom is the principle thing.... Clarity of vision and seeking My face, walking in the Spirit, single minded In Me ... this is Wisdom.

As Peter, you have walked on the water but when the distractions came and circumstances welled up around you, you began to sink but yet you cried out "Lord save me!" My chosen ones, Jesus has taken you by the hand and you are all in the boat of safety. I will still ANY storms and we are going safely to the other side.

As of old, the cloud is lifting and it is about to move. Many of you have been so restless and you wondered why... it is because I AM ready to take you forth as I am drawing you all together into one place spiritually, in one accord.

Look into the spiritual realm and see what is awaiting you, for you will see victory at your door, to walk in a dimension that you knew you would one day walk but it seemed so illusive and so far away. Now as you look into this realm, you will see yourselves walking through that door and experiencing the time of release. Looking into this realm, you will see yourselves moving in My direction and as you do, you will see Me moving in your direction. Before I kept you isolated from each other, now you will watch and be amazed as I bring you together and it will be an awesome event indeed.

Look My Beloved, Look upon the scene that is before you, one that fulfills the great commission I placed on your lives. Look, at this place that was designed for you. Look, as you see MY GLORY covering the earth through you because you have learned both obedience and humility. Look, as you see that I have brought you forth one hundred percent, TOTAL ....TOTAL SURRENDER TO ME .....TOTAL SURRENDER TO MY PLANS FOR YOU....TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO ME AND YOUR HEART BELONGS TOTALLY TO ME.

Look My Beloved, as your arise with the garments of Melchizadek and Look as you witness what is now coming to pass.

Look, My Glorious Beloved and see the fulfillment of My word!




Olivia Reitz Long - My Plumbline

Pressing Toward the Goal - Olivia Reitz Long My Plumbline


MY PLUMBLINE


( Behold I will set a plumbline in the midst of My people)
AND MY ROD OF FIRE

"So, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:  See, I lay a stone in Zion, 
a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; 
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.  I will make justice the 
measuring line and righteousness the plumbline
hail will sweep away your lie and water will overflow your hiding place."  
Isaiah 28:16-18

"Behold, I come like a thief!  Blessed is he who stays awake 
and keeps his clothes with him, 
so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed."  
Rev: 16:15

"Don't you know that you yourselves, are God's Temple 
and that God's Spirit lives in you?  If anyone destroys God's temple, 
God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred and you are that Temple."  
1 Cor: 3:16

"Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ Himself?  
Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute?  
Never!  Do you not know that he who unites himself 
with a prostitute is one with her in body?  
For it is said, the two shall become one flesh.  
But he who unites himself with "the Lord" 
is one with Him in spirit.
1 Cor 6:15-17

"For the word of God is living and active.  
Sharper than any double-edged sword, 
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow,
 it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.  
Nothing, nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight.  
Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him 
to whom we must give account."  
Hebrews 4:12-14

"For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed and whatever is concealed 
is meant to be brought out into the open.  
If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.  
Mark 4:22-24

"Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter 
the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father 
who is in heaven.  Many will say to me on that day, 
Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name, 
drive out demons and perform many miracles?  
Then I will tell them plainly, I never knew you. 
 Away from Me, you evil doer." 
Matthew 7:21-23

Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of "My People" and I will come with a Rod of Fire.  The time has come when I will set My plumbline on the wall of My people, determining how upright they truly are "in My sight". It will mean nothing to Me as to how upright many think they are or of how upright they declare themselves to be.  Many see the evil others do but cannot see it in themselves because they have used their own plumbline as a standard in their own lives.

As I held a plumbline up to a wall to My prophet Amos to show My own just how out of kilter they were and if not corrected, their wall would come tumbling down...As it was then, so shall it be now!  I am the same - yesterday, today and forever!

I have said to love ME with all of your heart, with all of your soul and with all of your might!  I have said to love your neighbor as yourselves.  Sadly, many of My  people professing to follow Me, demonstrate a 'faulty' love for others...Oh yes, they "speak the correct words", oh yes, they "speak of Me", they "speak of My commandments", they "speak of love", they speak many "words".... BUT the uprightness of My Plumbline is not there.  Where is My love for even the most despicable of people?  Why the judging of others, even brothers and sisters in the Lord, when judgment is Mine, saith the Lord. To My own, I say ...   Do not be surprised when you bring Me your offerings and they will not be accepted. 

I have sent many of My true prophets to My own, sadly MY prophets are not popular in their own country.   For those who should have listened, they have taken "defensive stands"  for they only see My Prophets coming against them.  If only one will listen and turn away from self-righteousness and truly stand "upright" to My Plumbline, My prophets will truly say it was worth it all.  My Plumbline, to be Christ-Like, to show others that He truly lives In you and Through you and truly standing for righteousness, this is what My own are to be....

Shortly, My own and the world will see changes as never before been seen... BUT FIRST I come to each of you -  and please hear Me, "I WILL COME and the time is not far off" - ponder now how you will measure up to MY plumbline.  Will you be standing upright?  Will you be catering only to me or will you continue to cater to man? Do you seek My attention or do you seek the attention of man and what they have to say?  Are you too busy listening to man who will tell you what you want to hear and listen to what you have to say or are you spending quality time with Me?  Are you giving the appearance to others of My anointing but bringing forth no fruit?  


I ask you, who will remain standing acting "IN LINE" to "MY WILL"? How many will heed My message that I have been bringing through a continual line of MY Prophets and not the prophets of man?  How many will see and make the necessary adjustments now?  It will not be your credentials, it will not be the words you speak from your soul, for false plumblines will crumble and fall and soon!  There can only be one plumbline and that is the knowledge of My Son and of Him truly, TRULY operating in and through My own,  standing Upright.  I tell you nothing else will do!


"I am setting a plumbline amidst My people and I will spare them no longer."  Truly, My beloved, examine yourselves and ask yourself ... Who am I truly trying to impress - man or My living God?  Do I care more for what man thinks or believes of me or of what My God thinks and believes of me?"  Do I love My God with all of my heart, with all of my soul and with all of my might?  Do I truly love my neighbor as myself?  Now is the time, the time  to ponder these questions most carefully.  
 
Do not make the mistake of thinking you still have time, for My Rod of Fire will come swiftly.  I AM coming to cleanse My Temple.  You are the priests of your own temple, take heed, do not be found wanting as the priests were found when I first came to earth.  I am coming with my Rod of Fire to separate those who profess to know Me and follow Me and those who really do...  Many will be left naked and ashamed and will be left behind.  Instead of following My Spirit they have followed their flesh. I will come as a thief, a surprise to you all and many will not be ready for what is to occur.

I am coming with My blazing Rod of Fire and what will remain are two camps from My Temple, one remaining and one to continue on with their destinies In Me.  Many are in dire danger due to the programs, doctrines and ideas of "man"...  It is imperative that you see "now" that it is on My side and My Word that you will stand and not with the popularity of man nor the pride of self.

Great danger and tragedy is coming upon the earth but also the greatest moments of My Glory....  The enemy is poised and ready but nothing escapes your Living God, Nothing!  Take heed, at this moment in time - it is not the danger of the enemy,it is not with the ideas  or thoughts of man, it is not about your own ideas of what is happening, it is not in physical disasters. 

 Although these things are coming, it is in none of these where your 'attention' should be at this most  crucial moment in time... At this moment, it is not about what any of this can do to you but with what Your God can do to you for I come before the destruction with My rod of fire.


As I judged Eli to be unworthy to remain as High Priest and cut him off, so shall I judge and cut off many who claim to be High Priest of My Temple!  My FINAL PURGING  shall come with a blazing Rod of Fire upon My own...  As I cleansed the physical temple when I first came to earth, I shall now cleanse My Temple which is to be living in you.   I AM Sovereign and I have a sovereign right to choose and I also have the sovereign right to judge.  Sadly, as the priests then had a hearing problem and ignored the warnings, so will many today.  You have heard the message, NOW the MESSENGER is coming.  Many will fall and not be able to "survive" the red hot flames of My rod.  Heed NOW, there will be no time later!

Countless destinies In Me are at stake.  Only a remnant shall move on and My Glory shall be seen in and through them... and ... the world, believers and non shall see My power working through My Beloved.

To My Faithful Ones,  continue to stay close to Me as the enemy would seek to derail you at the last moment... Keep your heads close to My chest as you have been doing and you will see the Glory of the Lord enabling you with My power and anointing - sending you  forth throughout the world. 

You have gone through so much, you have suffered much, lost much.  You have had great suffering and pain in your body.  You have had great suffering and pain in your emotions.  You have been wounded deeply and in pain, even by those who call Me Lord.   You have had great suffering and pain even in your spirit wondering if you will ever 'make My cut'...
The enemy has sought to do you in.  

EVEN NOW, you feel as Lazarus, that you are so sick that you will die and that I will not come to save you.  You have thought "but if only you had been here!  Where is My Friend!  Where is the One Who weeps over me?"  My Beloved, I have wept many tears over what has been happening to you but all of this has been preparation for what lies ahead.  My Faithful Ones, even though you don't think you have much hope and faith at times and  even with all your physical, emotional and spiritual pain that you have been going through, it is still My voice that you listen for even at the lowest point in your lives.  In all of your lonliness, you still seek to hear only My voice at this most crucial time in the history of man.  


Beloved, I see and hear all.  Hear Me ... I have wept over My Holy City, I have wept in the Garden, I have wept over My friend Lazarus and I have wept over you! Trust Me, as Lazarus, you will see the power that I truly possess when all appears dead and decaying ... 


My Faithful Ones, having gone through every kind of pain and suffering but remaining faithful to Me, trusting the I AM.   Even though you might not believe it ... it is  'you' where I will find "faith in this earth." 

Stand strong for you WILL measure up to My Plumbline. 

Stand strong for you WILL  be left standing as My Rod of Fire comes for the final purging. 
  
Stand strong for you WILL see My promises to you BECOME FACT! 





I Am Doing A New Thing - Olivia Reitz Long


Pressing Toward the Goal - I Am Doing A New Thing prophecy Olivia Reitz Long


"See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; 
do you not perceive it?  I AM making a way in the desert 
and streams in the wasteland.  The wild animals honor Me,
 the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert 
and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to My people, 
My chosen, the people I formed for Myself 
that they may proclaim My praise." 
Isaiah 43:19-22


"But when you pray go into your room, close the door and 
pray to your Father, who is unseen.  Then your Father, 
Who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."  
Matthew 6:6
 
My Glorious Beloved, have I not said I AM doing a new thing?  Haven't I chosen you for such a time as this?  So many concentrating on circumstances set against them, annoyances, distractions, but still do you not understand this is not an attack on you, it's an attack on Me?  Satan has had a field day wreaking havoc, even amidst My own.  He has had his day of stealing, killing and destroying.  You must understand that this is the only way the one who seeks to walk as a roaring lion can even begin to hope to get to Me and that is through you, the very ones who hold on to Me.  Why are you so surprised in what is happening, whether in your own circumstances or of that in world events?  Why do you spend so much of your time in seeking your own wisdom?  Haven't I said to come to Me for My Wisdom?  This is where you should be at every opportunity, especially at the present time, secluded with Me for such a time as this.

Most have not understood the road you have been walking for  I had called you to a deeper walk with Me.  Many have sought to please people, but I have said "Please Me."  The cost has been high but you made the decision that in order to please Me and for your own well being and ultimately the well being of others you had to say yes to My call.  Although much is still unclear of what this all entails, you know that at the appropriate time, I would bring forth 'in clarity' , for I always come through and many times at the last moment. 

I AM obligated to fulfill My promises to you, and I will place the mantle upon you for My purposes for a lost and dying world.  But you must dwell with Me in the secret place, this is very imperative at this moment in time. For those who have not yet heeded this call, you must come now!  You will be freed of even things you have not seen that you needed free of and you will be given much more than what your mind can conceive.

You have endured the trials and the fires, the heartaches and pain, throughout your life. Do not believe that I have not seen all the pain you have had to endure for Me, you have endured much for My sake and you are about to see Me bringing forth waves of rain to fall upon you.  These rains will refresh the spirit, soul and body.  My peace shall overtake you.  You have been in the wilderness for such a long time, I will fill you to overflowing and the wilderness will be as the desert, and the parched places will turn into full bloom and these rains will bring you into your Destiny.

A new thing is upon you, the season is now fast approaching when I will place a mantle and special dispensation upon My chosen ones.  A time where the revealed word will turn into manifestation.  You are in covenant with Me and at the moment too many are walking in discouragement, despair and depression.  Am I a man that I can lie?  NO! What I promised you will come to fruition.  Is it not written when a seed is sown, the enemy seeks to rob the revelation that I gave to you, via the cares of the world?  At this moment, I AM present and ready to put your concerns at rest, but you must enter the inner chamber and be in deep communion with Me.  I have asked this of you before, many have said yes, have obeyed my command but I seek all of you to come!  COME NOW, there is no time for delay!

I AM watching over My Word to perform it and I will bring to pass that which I imparted. At times the revelation I imparted to you, the expectancy of it coming forth, is what made every day worth living, adding purpose to your life. Although you have waited so long and nothing happened as you thought it would or at the time you thought it should - and satan shouted into your inner being "fool!" with the natural fighting the supernatural, still you hung on to Me, with sometimes the last strength left in you.  My glorious beloved, I AM closing the gap. No longer will the gap between the spoken word and manifestation survive.

I AM birthing within you a new love for your Father, your God. Just as I placed a birthing in Sarah, at an impossible time, so I AM placing with you a new love in what seems an impossible time. You shall see Me and you will know 'MY LOVE'. You say in your heart "I already know you God" but I say to you, this love will surpass anything you have ever known or thought you knew and it will increase your faith and increase your hope as you place yourself in My mighty arms..I say again, it is very imperative at this critical juncture of time to be in the inner chamber with ME, this is where you will find safety, this is where you will see any remaining bondages broken, true repentance given and it's where clarity shall come forth.

Behold, My Beloved, Behold Who I AM, behold ME... Do not give any place to the enemy when he strikes, but say "Behold My God, Behold My God." Do not allow the enemy to steal your joy and BEHOLD YOUR GOD!!! In all things give thanks according to My Word. Beloved, I AM a Mighty God, I can do ALL things! I have chosen you  and I will use you to deliver My people.  Inquire of Me.... inquire of Me and I will deliver you that you may go forth.

 I have called you for My purposes. If I would forsake you, I would be forsaking Myself and that I cannot do... You have a call and a purpose and it is all OF ME - I have prepared the way and devised the plan, a plan designed by ME and it CANNOT fail. For many of you the enemy has tried to stop it by taking you out, but you have stood strong. Now, he can only "try" to foil My plans but they are MY PLANS, all mine and they CANNOT fail. So prepare to follow where I AM leading you and I promise - you will not be disappointed or ashamed.  Not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit saith the Lord. I AM moving by My Spirit. It cannot fail as My Spirit is in control and is moving in a mighty way on your behalf.

Keep the Sword of the Spirit close to you always as it will be your direction and guide throughout the times to come. It will satisfy all longings and continue to uplift you as I need 'built up sons and daughters to go forth In My Name!'  Move by My Spirit, stay by My Spirit and be directed by My Spirit! Do not say I cannot do the work but say:

 "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me! I am the vessel in His hands! I am the vessel that He has emptied - emptied of self and filled with HIM!  I am the vessel that has been emptied of the things of the world and filled with the things of God!  I am the vessel ready to reflect His Glory!  I am ready to walk His walk and I am the vessel who will go where HE leads!   I am ready!
