The biggest question most of us have right now is...”why are we still here, as we are now”? And when I say “us”, I’m referring to the 288,000 Firstfuits…the first 2 matured groups of 144,000 that it speaks of in The Word of God. As we know, these 2 groups are to be transfigured and transformed towards the beginning of the Tribulation (where we are now), because they will “come back” here to minister and assist the multitude in their preparations for Jesus 2nd Coming. Of course as we know, the great multitude will continue as they are throughout the Tribulation period, because they still need a lot of refining before they will be able to skip death and go straight outside of time with Jesus when He comes. They did not prepare, they were not watching as Jesus warned us, so they will have to be refined as silver is refined, and they have to go through the sanctification process so that their “whole spirit soul and body is preserved blameless” at His coming. (1 Thess 5:23)
These questions and several others are questions that even I have been asking the Lord, and even just this morning I was on my face in the spirit before Him, seeking His answers, seeking His understanding, and seeking His guidance. Well a beautiful sister in Jesus texted me not too long after I prayed that! And here is what her text said:
“God has directed me in two different numbers, back to Daniel 2:35 over the last few days. I believe we are living through this now. All glory to God! Hallelujah!
The chaff is being broken off his people.”
Wow. What an amazing word! We can always know when a word is from the Lord, in His perfect season, and at His appointed time, when it resonates in our spirit (and in this case) He begins to speak words to you to share with His people! HALLELUJAH!! Of course our sister had no idea what I had just prayed, but Jesus does. And Jesus very quickly answered my prayer. Amen and Amen.
The next following Word is a POWERFUL Word that The Lord gave me as soon as I heard His above Word through our sister. This one is "similar" to the last one from last week, however this time He is specifically addressing the Firstfruits, and much more specific, those of the Firstfruits who are beginning to waver, listening to the whispering lies of the enemy that 'maybe nothing they've learned or understood about Firstfruits is even correct', or 'thinking they heard wrong' or even 'questioning the very voice of God'. I can give you a little witness that The Lord used for me that helped me get in line and STAND in who I KNOW I am in Jesus!! A couple of years ago, the enemy was lying his usual lies...telling me I'm crazy and nothing I think is coming is even gonna happen...lies from the pit of hell of course. As many of you know, The Lord revealed to me that He has called me as a Commander to lead the tribe of Joseph in the Lord's Harvest. HALLELUJAH!! ALL GLORY TO GOD!! So as I said, a couple of years ago, The Lord knew the enemy was trying to get me to questions things (which, of course, just like any of us I need to come against regularly). And as I walked in the kitchen, Dan was walking toward me, and he stopped...he looked at me...and he said..."The Lord says, "Are you a Commander...or a private?" Now of course, The Lord was not saying a commander is any more important that a private...He is not a respecter of persons. He was just making a point. The Lord was strongly reminding me of my call, to stop listening to the lies of the enemy, and to get my focus straight back on Him and HIS Will for my life.
Ok I will now go into the Word He gave me this morning. So the first words that I heard the Lord speaking to me, that He wanted me to share with His Firstfruits 288,000, is this:
“Why do you sleep my children, I stand at the door and knock. Your Bridegroom comes, it is time to awaken and prepare your lamps which are full with oil. It is NOT a time to give up. It is not a time to sit back and ponder when I am coming. It is especially not time to falter in your faith! You are the first mature fruits of my church, and you need to stand now more than ever. You need to be the example for those in the church who are continuing in their worldly ways thinking that there is plenty of time. You need to be an example to those who have not yet heard my words “Come out of her my people”! As I said to my disciples in the boat, "where is your faith" my children? Are you applying it to Me and My Will? Or are your eyes on the storm?
Take a look in your hearts, ask Me what's left that still needs to be removed and “blown away as the chaff’. Are you allowing impatience and weariness to dictate how you stand at this time? Have you run away to hide from My call on your life? Are you allowing the enemy’s lies and deception to lead you in the wrong direction? Have you put off your heart healing and deliverance, and allowed the ‘chaff’ in your heart rule your thinking?
I call out to MY ARMY! Stand up! Your job is not done here until I take you and activate you! It is not a time to give up! It is not a time to give in! And it is, especially, not a time to lose faith! The enemy does not want to see you fulfill My call on your life, and he will do everything he can to stop you. Don't let him! Only by your faith, and your choice to STAND in who you are in Me, and everything I've called you to, will the enemy back off. Resist the devil and he will flee. But he has to know that you are resisting him by My Strength through your mustard seed faith…not just with words.
Do not allow him to cause you to question the things that I have shown you and revealed to you. You know My Voice. You know My Voice when I speak to you, as well as when I speak through my body. I have brought each of you through much as you moved through your sanctification process. Much was revealed that was in your hearts even through that process. This is the process that brought you to maturity in me, because you allowed me to change you and mold you through that process.
Your Bridegroom knocks on the door…and I wait...and I wait...and I wait. It is ‘you’ that has not yet answered, because you do not recognize My knock…My call. Obedience to My Voice is the key to opening My Door. You are allowing the distractions of this life to steal your attention from listening for My call. It is the 'desire to hear the distractions', over Me, that IS the “chaff”. These “distractions” are more than just the things of the world, and the things going on in your life….it is simply 'the desire to do your own will'…over My will. It is “self”. In these, your last moments in this life as you know it, how much time everyday are you spending on the things related to my call on your life? And on the contrary, how much time do you spend focused on all the responsibilities you have in ‘your own life’, and what you have on your 'own' list and schedule? Are you out to “please man”…to “make man happy”? Or are you here to obey and please Me? You are my first mature fruits...obedience to My call should be priority in Your daily life. I know you My children, I know your situations, and “when“ I call…I expect your obedience. (Kathy's note: As He said in the message last week..."to whom much is given, much WILL be required".)
“Walk by faith and not by sight” my children. No matter what you “see” with your physical eyes…as I have said many times now, nothing is as it seems. You are living in a world full of lies and illusion. Remember the timelines. Remember that “time is no more”. Remember the earth is descending into the black hole. Things will continue to get much more confusing and hard for you to comprehend…aside from Me. Keep your eyes on Me. Do not waver. STAND FIRM. I AM AT THE DOOR. I HAVE COME. The greatest of My Judgements ARE about to begin. BE READY. BE ALERT. BE VIGILANT. I AM HERE."
Thus saith The Lord.
