Surrounded by a wall of Fire

Posted by appolus on June 25, 2009

Our God is a consuming fire. He seeks to set men ablaze with His love. He seeks to burn the chaff off men’s lives. He seeks to purify and refine and He does this through fire. This can only be achieved in men who have had their walls broken down. All of their own ambitions and hopes and dreams demolished by an all consuming God who shares His glory with no one.

The remnants journey to the valley of Acacias

Posted by appolus on June 17, 2009

 

THE REMNANT JOURNEY TO THE VALLEY OF ACACIAS

This word will give directions to the remnant saints that are traveling to the valley of  Acacias. It may be that you do not understand this word. Yet the remnant of God’s people will understand it for they know in their hearts that the Lord is at the door and that they are being  moved in ways they have not known before. Ever drawn away from the world and deeper into the Father’s heart.

How many of us “know ,” that the day of the Lord is coming and it is coming soon? This has nothing to do with proofs or opinions, you just know in your spirit, there is a witness in your spirit that speaks to you and you “know.” I could talk about signs and prophecies being fulfilled but I do not wish to do that in this word, you already “know,” that the Bridegroom is coming for this is a word to the remnant. Who are the remnant? Well, they are the Church, not to be mistaken for the established church. God is calling His remnant people from all over the world which includes the established church to come out from among “them.” We have not to touch the unclean thing. The Holy Spirit must show you what is the unclean thing in our day.

There are still many brothers and sisters within the established church but they will eventually leave. This is not a calling from man; it is a calling from God for God has all but withdrew His Presence from the established church. Eze 10:18 And the glory of Jehovah went from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubs. The continuing purpose of the remnant within the church is to be a witness to those who would also come out and establish judgment on that which calls itself the church.

The remnant are further identified in Eze 9:4 And Jehovah said to him, Go through in the midst of the city, in the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark on the foreheads of the men who are groaning and are mourning because of all the abominations that are done in her midst.


They have been identified with a mark on their foreheads
. They mourn and are deeply saddened at the condition of the established church. Those within the established church will not be able to identify their state for they allowed themselves to be blinded by their love for the world. They  identify so much with the world that they look just like it. They will be friendlier to those of the world than to those who mourn for the state of the church. The remnant are and will continue to be increasingly marginalized and isolated within the four walls of the church and they lose their voice. Fellowship is ever more difficult to find as most in the established church simply have no idea where they are coming from. This process is happening across the spectrum of the established church, whether it is in the “Pentecostal,” circles or the more conservative Evangelical movement.

This isolation that the remnant feel eventually compels them to reach out and find other like-minded people. This reaching out reaches across denominational lines and “strange bedfellows,” are popping up everywhere. The remnant are not to be confused with “church-hoppers,” in fact the opposite is true. The remnant try everything to make a difference in their churches. They go above and beyond but there is simply no breaking through to the worldliness that they find. This is a hungry and thirsty people and they will eventually be compelled to move on in the hope of finding some water in a dry and thirsty land, they are desperate for the “former rains.”

God has begun to pour out His former and latter rains. The former rains have softened and are softening the soil to receive the remnant. The process is in flux all over the world. The winter planting of the wheat has begun for the last time. The Bridegroom is coming and the Bride is being made ready. Not righteous mind you, it has already been made righteous by the Blood of the Lamb; it is being prepared for the coming of the Bridegroom. The mansion has been prepared, the bridal chamber is ready and now the wheat, the Bride awaits the latter rains, they await the sounds of the trumpet.

God’s remnant have been and are being prepared and it is they who call down the latter rain. Before they call down the latter rain they call for repentance.

Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.(Joe 2:12-17)


They rend their hearts, they fast, they weep and they mourn. They assemble themselves, gather themselves together. They weep between the porch and the brazen altar which has all but been abandoned. It is they that have been marked by God, the remnant that do these things. It is upon these people that the latter rains fall. The latter rains enlarges their capacity, they grow stronger in their spirits as the Lord pours out His Spirit upon them.

This is not a good sign for the world or for what passes as the church. The remnant begin to dream dreams and see visions. In these dreams and visions they see that the Day of the Lord is at hand. They begin to speak to the world and the established church. They call them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, the valley of judgment.  Even now it is the valley of decision; it is still not too late for the heart to rend itself to God.

For the remnant, the called out ones, the chosen of the Lord, they now stand in a continual downpour of His rain. Those who formerly thirsted, thirst no more. And directly proportionate to the outpouring of Gods Spirit comes persecution. Yet, this only drives the remnant deeper into the arms of their God which still infuriates the enemy of our soul even more. The remnant now experience a fountain of living water that flows continuously “from the house of the Lord.” (Joel 3:18) And the valley that the remnant have been called to is flooded with living water from the throne-room itself (Rev14:7, Rev 19:6) The name of this valley is Acacias. This was the last location of the children of Israel before they entered Canaan. (Num 25:1, Josh 3:1) This will be the last location of the Bride before the Bridegroom comes and they enter in and the door is closed behind them.

Brothers and sisters. You must take up the spiritual journey now as the days grow darker. You have to make your way  through the valley. It may require leaving behind everything that you have known. People, denominations, structure. Yet the Lord is with you. He has never dwelt in temples built by human hands, He dwells in the hearts of His children. The living stones must come together in unity just as Jesus prophesied in John 17. He says that we shall be one just as He and His Father are one so that the world will know that the Father sent the Son and that He loves them just as He loves the Son. The time is now to begin your journey, your journey to the valley of Acacias. This is the last place the children of Israel gathered before crossing over into the promised land.

A Malachi Word

Posted by appolus on June 5, 2009

Many are but mere bones lying useless in the valley. Many more jump up and down all the day long calling fire down from heaven. No fire will come and the rain will not fall. Your land is dry and thirsty and shall remain that way for the Lord has shut up the heavens.
