A series of visions from 2009 , Part 1

Posted by appolus on October 27, 2011

Below is part one of a series of visions that my cousin had in 2009. As many know I am a conservative Pentecostal for lack of a better phrase. I have no connections to Charismatics or so called Charismania. There are so many claims from people about visions and propecies and so on and one has to exercise great discernment , especially in these days, when it comes to these matters. My spirit witnessed with what my cousin saw in his visions and what the Lord was showing him about the state of Britian and the West. My cousin’s father, who had now passed away, was my mothers brother. He was a Godly man and spent the better part of 30 years as a missionary in Pakistan. He shared that journey with his wife whom he met and married there. She is from Wales and is a very Godly woman. In fact, I visted her a couple of years ago when we had a revival conference in Moriah chapel, the very center of the Welsh revival at the turn of the 20th Century , she lives just a short distance away, in the village of Lougher. I will post the rest of my cousins vision in two more parts. ………………….

The following is a record of a series of prophetic experiences which happened early in November 2009.

I saw the Ark of the Covenant coming down from the sky into the streets of Leicester and was instantly aware of its immense power. It was radiant and glorious. These visions appear as images as if projected onto the canvas of your mind. I read in the Old Testament that the people of God won wars and great victories when the Ark was with them but were taken into captivity and slavery when they allowed their enemies to steal it from them. The Ark is the very Presence of God with His People. This is what it symbolizes. With the Ark of His Presence the children of God will accomplish great and mighty things for His Kingdom. I had been meditating on a song and praying it. The singer kept repeating the words “Let power come down from your heavens”. This was going round in my spirit as I went about my life as I knew the Holy Spirit would reveal something to me and was stirring something prophetic to be released.

A few days later I saw the Ark again and as it came down from the sky into Leicester and as it hovered its lid lifted off partially. From it came radiance. Streams emanated like individual lightening currents as they hit people in the street. It hovered in the middle of the sky and its holiness and radiance was so powerful. It hit them right in the chest and I saw them recoil back with the impact of the encounter. It was such an amazing sight. I thought about who these people were and wondered what was going on in their lives. The words “deep impact” kept coming into my spirit and I knew that He wanted to deeply impact peoples lives with His Presence. The Ark seemed to bring colour and life and health. Things seemed to be black and white and dull without the Ark. But when it arrived there was colour, life and vibrancy. This Ark was everything. It just began to fill my spirit. It was new hope and new life. It was healing and restoration. It was everything. It was the fullness of God and His Power. I knew instantly that there was a process to getting the Ark back; a strategy which might be a life’s work. I knew there were steps we had to take; things that we had to do.

I carried on my life but something began to overwhelm me in my spirit. The desire to see this Ark which carried the Presence began to become something inside me. It was like a holy determination to have this Ark and not just for myself. I am not a theological person but I know what I felt. It was from outside myself and yet it was put in me. I knew that this Ark was needed in more than one city; the nation and beyond needed it and it had to come. Its arrival would change everything. It would cause the people of God to do great and mighty things for Him and end their powerlessness and ineffectiveness in their communities. Without this Ark with us we were nothing. We made no real difference. I knew that we needed this Ark and that we had to call out for it to come. It seemed to me to be urgent. I felt I would never be truly satisfied or feel complete until it was brought. Much of my dissatisfaction came from the fact that this Presence had gone from the land and from the church. Even what the church was calling His Presence was not truly this Presence and I wondered if the church even knew this.

What they had was tainted by other spiritual forces and the flesh. We had to have the fullness of this Ark and everything it meant. I could see its transforming power but I kept coming back to life and trying to push away these stirrings from the Holy Spirit and said to the Lord; “I’ve got things to do and get on with; things to sort out” and He kept replying to me “Nothing is more important than the Ark”. I began to know this was true as I began to feel so deeply its transforming power. And yet the Holy Spirit kept asking me as He transmitted the words into my spirit; “Who will bring the Ark back? Who will give it the place of central importance? Who will make it their life’s work? Who will offer their lives as a sacrifice to this?” I came to know that this was a cause worth dying for as in it the name of Jesus would be glorified. The words of Jesus which are spirit came to me and entered my spirit; “I have glorified My Name and I will glorify it again”.

I began to know so deeply that the Ark and what is symbolized would change everything and that it would have power to heal my nation. There truly was nothing more important than the Ark and what it represented as without it there would be only death and decay. I could see that I needed the Ark and so did the city and the nation. I suddenly could feel the spiritual life of the city and the nation ebbing away. It was as though in the spirit this life was crying out to me to do something. I knew that this box was the top priority as it was clearly more than just a box; it was life; it was the life of God. It was the Divine breath of God that would revive and heal and cleanse. I thought of the immense power of this life. It was the orchestrating force of all life as we know it. It would reanimate the spiritual life and would make itself known in the natural and visible world. As I walked about seeing people dashing around I thought of all the important things they might be doing. They could be going to visit someone in hospital, borrow money to buy a house, going to see a doctor to seek healing, looking for a job. And yet, whilst I knew these things were important and whilst many of the masses I saw were under severe pressures in these days I wondered at what forces were moving and directing their minds and their actions; the Presence of this Ark was the most vital thing. It was that critical. It began to overwhelm me. It was as though I was taken out of the ordinary and given this deeper and more critical view of things. I felt I was being taken to the core of the problem. It was like being a doctor as images suddenly flashed before as I was taken to the core diagnosis of the problem with our nation and my city. I could see the sickness and disease of our nation and I knew that God had the answer. The core answer lay in this Ark and I just began to know it so deeply. In the midst of all action and apparent life I began to smell the atmosphere of death. All my spiritual senses were awakened as I took in the odour of decay. The people were totally unaware.  They were oblivious to it. It was the spiritual life of the city and the nation that I could smell. The urgency of the Ark began to overwhelm me. I knew there must be others who saw this.

I began to weep and ask that this Presence would come. I realized that I was carrying a grief that the Presence was not truly here in my nation. I began to know that many people in the Body of Christ were carrying this grief. The Kingdom of God and the Presence of the Holy Spirit was the most important thing to them and many wanted the true church to emerge. It was like the single most important thing and at the very core of our existence and purpose; to have this fullness and to see the manifestation of this fullness all around us. Without it many would subconsciously live with this grief that the fullness of the manifestation was not being shown. Others who did not see its importance or who were distracted by the things of this world may not see how vital it was. They may even be distracted by “church” things as the Ark spoke of the Kingdom of God which I came to know was very different to “church” stuff. Without this there would be a constant feeling that we were settling for less. Some in the church may be able to go about their lives and not be bothered about it as long as they were okay and their own personal lives were not particularly stricken with anything serious. But to others there would be a deeper longing and yearning which they knew others did not live with. The yearning to see the people of Jesus doing truly great and mighty works and truly come into His fullness. To walk in Divine love and power. To see God vindicate His own Name in the land. The fullness of the character of Christ and the coming of His Presence would be key. He was actually holding back His Presence as He prepared those who would receive it. Many saw signs and wonders and the release of these as the end in themselves and yet they were not. I was aware that we have not even begun to move onto the true realm of His Presence. Holiness and consecration were vital to this as was the character of Christ. I was aware that the Ark was a holy and sacred thing. Therefore consecration to the Ark was consecration to Christ.

I knew we were being held to account for our cities and our nation. God was not joking about this task and He did not want it looked upon as some light cause-celeb. It was life or death for the city and the nation. Happy clapping on a Sunday wouldn’t`t do it. Warfare was needed. True and genuine and sustained spiritual warfare with great wisdom and the leading of the Holy Spirit. When He says its time to camp then its time to camp. But when He says its time to beat your ploughshares into swords then its time to fight. The key is to hear Him and obey.

I began to see that the Ark was Christ and the life of Christ. It was holy and sacred. It was His Spirit. It was His wisdom and His justice. It was His Kingdom and His Order. It was powerful and it carried the law. Jesus said that He was the fulfillment of the law. He did not do away with the law but fulfilled it. He ushered in the grace of God. It was the time of His grace. He would extend His grace to whoever He chose. Churches may want to control who they let in but Gods grace would be extended to all and His Kingdom was wider. I began to think about the angel that appeared to the shepherds. He said it was good news for all people that the Saviour had been born.

Suddenly it was as if the Ark meant all things. It was Divine Order. It was the fullness of Christ. Touching absolutely everything. Its impact would be truly deep. In time it would completely alter the structures of our society. It would solve the great and deepest problems of our nation. The Ark would tear down and re-build the very foundations It would rip out the old foundations and lay new ones. It was as though its influence had been here once, in part, but now I began to see it ebbing away. I could only see pockets of hope. In the vision I was shown the island of Great Britain but wondered whether we were winning the deeper battles. The Holy Spirit said to me “Who will carry the Ark?” and my immediate response was “I will”. Then the Holy Spirit showed me that the heart was everything and that the Lord was looking on the heart. To a church which thrived on professionalism and those who communicate well, who trusted in their educations etc. I could see that all this was largely missing the point. The key thing was desire and hunger and brokenness before God. We needed the very Person of  Christ through the Holy Spirit; the very Presence of God to be with us. We needed to truly welcome Him and embrace Him. I was aware that many churches said that they welcomed Him but actually only invited Him as a passenger whilst they actually decided their course. But if He was truly the source of the Arks power then we needed Him to fill our nation and our cities with His Presence. We had to collectively call on Him to come and we had to repent of our ways. We had to have the fullness of the Presence and everything that went with it. We had to position ourselves to receive the Ark and be ready to receive. We had to be participants in the process. We had to prepare ourselves.

    This also bears witness in my spirit, and is a conformation to me. God has been showing me similar things not in visions but through his word and his spirit. I would like to say something in response to the statement “Who will carry the Ark?”
    This comes at great cost although it is well worth the cost most are not willing to pay the price. The cost is everything total death to self and this world the pleasures of this world. God will not share his glory with a man that has not been sanctified for his porpose and this is a very bitter painful process, but God has some set aside who have gone through that process and are ready for the job.

    • appolus said

      Great cost indeed Tim. Who will carry the Ark, who will ascend Gods holy Hill? Are there any that seek the Ark? Yes brother Tim, yes there is, there is a remnant people, God always has a remnant people. I am priveledged to know some, and they are scattered, much like salt is scattered. There is a people that have not bowed the knee to Baal, they are the people of God and they are the temple of God , they are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Yet there comes a time soon I believe, that the end comes. God has raised up His watchmen on the wall to cry aloud. He has marked them as those marked in Ezekeil 9. The mourn and wail for the state of the Church, the state of the land. They feel its vitality ebb away, they feel what is approaching soon, oftentimes they cannot put it into words but they feel it in their bones. They mourn the loss of the corporate presence of God, yet God must leave the Church that is soon to be judged. It all lies within the context of the times in which we live. If the Son of God indeed approaches, if the Master is soon returning, then the enemy knows it well. There are those who dwell underneath the alter…………………..

      Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
      Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
      Rev 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

      This season comes near. Who can tell how near? Yet it does draw near and the enemy knows it well and he rages and he rages against the saints of God…………………..

      Rev 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
      Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
      Rev 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
      Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
      Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

      Yes brothers and sisters, they shall hunger no more, neither shall they thirst. Do you feel the hunger right now? Are you parched with thirst? Is it possible for any man or woman to hunger for that which he has never tasted? Can he thirst for that which he has never drunk of? Its the time, its the season. The presence of the Lord returns soon and with it comes great tribulation for the enemy hates the saint that walks in the presence of God, he hates them and he fears them and he must surely kill them. And so a time such has never been before comes and the Lord prepares His saints. Just as He Himself was led of the Spirit into the desert to prepare Him, then so to we. He was prepared and the devil himself came after Him in the desert and unlike the first Adam, the second Adam prevailed by the Word of the Lord. The first Adam denied the Word of God and was cast out, and the second Adam stood upon the Word of God and prevailed, and then, after He had hungered and thirsted and overcame, He was ministered to. And out of the desert He came. Just as John the Baptist came out of the desert and proclaimed ” Behold the Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world.” The desert produces victory, the time of testing proves the men and woman of faith……………..brother Frank

  4. Allan H. said

    Hi Frank:

    I say Amen to this. This is what my own heart beats for (with the help of His grace). And as your cousin said, this matter of seeing the Ark in our midst again… it calls for a life commitment.

    I think of all the things that are going on in the Christian realm in this hour; there is so much that it’s possible to get involved in these days… a lot of it “good.”

    But where is the Ark?

    And where are the people who are mourning for the Ark? How easy it is to just carry on without it.

    We’re told that while the ark was in Kirjath-jearim, the time was long… many years… before the people began “to mourn for the ark” (1 Sam. 7.2).

    In other words, they carried on with all the things that made up their lives, all the religious activity, as we do in our day — Sunday church, weekly Bible study, praise and worship, the many programs it’s possible to get involved in…

    But where is the Ark?

    A few days ago the Lord laid this verse on my heart:

    “The LORD looked down from Heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God” (Ps. 14.1).

    That’s the measure of our understanding in this hour– If we are not seeking God… we simply do not understand.

    Oh, you say, I am seeking God for this… or for that…

    No, that’s not what I mean. Seek GOD… Himself.

    The Ark.

    David said, “Seek the LORD, and His strength” (Ps. 195.4).
    That is, the ARK.

    For earlier He had “delivered His ‘strength’ into captivity, and His glory into the enemy’s hand” (Ps. 78.6).

    His strength, His glory… That is, the ark. God had actually allowed the ark to fall into the hands of the Philistines. But the Philistines were plagued by it, till finally they devised a way to get rid of it, and return it to Israel.

    They put it on a cart and harnessed up two milk cows to the cart, at the same time tying up their calves back in the barn. And then they let the cows go. Now, the first thing a cow would do is head straight for that barn, and her calf. But not these two cows. They headed straight down the road for Israel, “lowing as the went.” (1 Sam. 6.12). They wanted to go to their calves!

    But the Ark wanted to go home!

    …Our Lord Jesus Christ WANTS to come to us, beloved! We are HOME to Him.

    For our part, then, will we not seek Him? I mean, seek HIM — His Presence with us… He Himself… the ARK in our midst again? Will we not make this the ONE THING we breathe for… and seek Him as to what He is looking for from us… just what it is that we must do… that will bring Him back?

    Oh, to see this!

    “Arise, O LORD, into Thy REST, Thou and the ark of Thy strength” (Ps. 132.8).

  5. appolus said

    Amen Allan, you write………………..

    “And where are the people who are mourning for the Ark? How easy it is to just carry on without it.”

    Brother, do you know that as the Lord hung outside of the city , hung upon the cross, discarded and rejected and cried out ” It is finished,” that the veil of the temple was torn from top to bottom, I know you know that. Yet what was the point of that? Why was the Holy of Holy’s revealed and what was revealed? It was revealed that that the Ark was not there, no the presence of God was not in the midst of the temple of God where it was supposed to be , the presence of God hung on a tree for all who had eyes to see. The Ark, it is reckoned, had not been in the Temple for over over 500 years. So what had taken place for all these years? All the religious activity, all the sacrificing , all the feast days. When the High Priests went behind the veil every year, what were they doing? It was a mockery,and it was a mockery that God judged and not one stone was left unturned as this temple was judged. And before it was destroyed the Roman emperor inisted on being the first to enter this room, and he famously asked ” what was all the fuss about an empty room.” Everything outside of the presence of God is without meaning. The church goes on without His presence because that is what an institution does. If they sought Him with all of their hearts, would He not come? Yes He would. If they suspended all of their activities and spent day and night crying out to Him with their whole hearts would He not come? Yes He would. Can they humble themsleves and admit total failure? Why that would mean the loss of reputaion and power and standing in the pulpit amongst men. Do they fear men rather than God?

    God has His remnant brother and He has them scattered for now. He alone knows the time when they shall be gathered together……………………brother Frank

    • Allan H. said

      Hi Frank:

      Yes, the veil of the temple was rent, and lo… the place was empty.

      By way of contrast: “And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of his testament (covenant): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail” (Rev. 11.19).

      THIS temple was opened, and lo, the ark was THERE!

      …I don’t know that I understand this passage all that well, Frank, but I dearly want to be part of this, part of this temple of living stones that is the habitation of the living GOD… and the hour comes when the Ark within is SEEN, the ARK Himself is SEEN… and what a storm it creates!

      • appolus said

        Hi Allan, we see at the beginning of Rev 11 the measuring of the temple, not the outer court mind you, or if you like, the court of the gentiles which was supposedly built by Herod and not part of the original plan. So what does this mean? What is being measured now in our day? The temple itself, Gods people. It must be determined if we worhip at the true alter of God and that can only be achieved by measuring, seeing if it stands in the light of observation . Do we worship at the alter which is Christ? Do we lay down all of our sacrifices at the alter, at the feet of Jesus? Gods people must be measured, do we make the glory of God our chief aim? Do we seek the presence of God which is the greatest treasure of all above all things?

        It is also interesting to see what is not measured. Their is a court that is outside the temple. This is the court of the gentiles and this was the nature of my own vision four years ago. I saw the two courts, The court of the gentiles and the inner courts or the Holy of Holies. Why is the outer court not measured? It is not of God. Who dwells in the outer court and not measured? The religious people, the half-hearted, those who neither hunger nor thirst.

        There is a period of time that the ” holy city,” is trampled under foot. Brother, I believe we are living in that period as hard as that may be to believe. This is a time of desolation for the true Church. Everywhere they look they see nothing but desolation and the outer court has become the whole. This makes the Lord;s true worshippers despair. Perhaps you have felt this very despair as you have surveyed the ” land,” with your Spiritual eyes? I believe you have brother. Its hard for most remnant Christians to even put into words what they feel because they have no idea that we are not in a cycle but we are in a particular period of time. If we look at Psalm 74 we see a time which is called ” perpetual desolation.” Its a time when the sanctuary and every synagogue in the land has been over-run and those who have over-run it are tearing down everything. I believe that almost all of the churches in the land have been taking over by the dwellers of the outer courts, the courts of the gentiles, this is the time of the gentiles and the Lords people can only weep and mourn at what they survey. They weep and mourn and are marked, measured by God, as in Ezekeil 9. The Ark is removed because judgment has come. What is the ark, what does it represent? Obviously it is the very presence of God and so there is a wonderful promise of God at the end of Rev 11. The Temple will be opened after the period of the witnesses. The time of the witnesses are almost upon us I believe. I believe that the ” two,’ witnesses are symbolic. i am not truly sure what they are symbolic of, perhaps the destruction of the remnant as we go through the tribulation and the world rejoices at the death of Gods people? ……………………brother Frank

  6. Allan H. said

    I believe you are right, Frank, that the number “two” is symbolic (as are many of the numbers in The Revelation).

    I believe it is symbolic of a corporate testimony.

    In fact John says as much in verse 4.

    “These (he is speaking of the two witnesses) are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.”

    The two olive trees are the “two sons of oil,” as Zechariah calls them. Candlesticks, or lampstands, in The Revelation, are churches. So these two witnesses are obviously not just two individuals – but rather are churches shining forth a testimony that is fed and sustained by “Oil olive,” the Oil of the Holy Spirit.

    In verses 5 and 6 we see that their testimony is similar to that of Moses and Elijah.

    The last chapter of Malachi comes to mind.

    “Remember ye the law of Moses my servant… behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD…”

    Their testimony, then, is to show the people of God “the Book of the Law,” and TURN them to repentance, to prepare them for what is ahead. What they do becomes a measuring work, revealing whether or not things line up with the Temple (Christ Himself), and the Altar (the Cross).

    They are clothed in sackcloth because they are calling the people to sackcloth. How can you call others to what you yourself are not walking in?

    I believe you are right, brother, that we are in the beginnings of seeing this anointed testimony of the two witnesses; perhaps in a measure we have seen it at times all through the church age, in fact. But I believe we are about to see this in fullness. This is at the door.

    But from verses 7 and 8 it appears that their testimony is not going to be all that well received.

    …Another thought comes to mind relative to what you said about the “outer court” not being measured. Being “measured” is no easy thing; the Lord shows us we come short here, we are too long there… too little of this and too much of that… It can be very difficult at times. Very difficult. But brother, if we find ourselves being measured, let us rejoice! Do we want to be left out of this great work of His? There are some the Lord looks upon and leaves out. Some He chastens, measures… some He does not. At times we look at them and envy them; they have it so easy, whereas we are always being searched and tried and measured.

    …But my prayer is, Lord, don’t quit measuring me, till I am lined up just the way you want me, till you have the desire of Your heart in my life — “the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”

    • appolus said

      Good thoughts brother, I agree with your thought process. These Scriptures comes to mind brother………………
      Zec 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
      Zec 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
      Zec 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
      Zec 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

      Mal 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
      Mal 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
      Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
      Mal 3:4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

  7. W.E. Smith said

    Excellent thoughts my brothers. Thank you. I quite frankly do not know if this witness is a corporate one or if these are individuals. There are arguments on both sides to be sure, but I am not sure if it matters that much spiritually.

    I would add however that going back to first principles of the Word, we must acknowledge the following verse –

    I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, (Deut 30:19)

    When such witnesses emerge, surface or appear, however – the whole world will know. They will stand outside the temple and even the land, as did John the Baptist and Elijah. The full powers of heaven will be borne in them on the earth as a signature that all that they say is from the maker of Heaven and Earth. Their call will be one of repentance, of return, of coming out of her, or else you will share in her judgement. They will be hated and hunted by the Jezebel harlot spirit that has polluted the testimony of the Lord in His people.

    They will not love their lives even to death, nor will they suffer any compromise in their love for the Lord. “Choose Life” will be their message essentially. Choose the life of Jesus Christ, that you may live. Let the blood-borne life of the Lord be your mark, not the mark of the false one, the bringer of death. The fullness and depth and height of the life of the Lord has no end, whereas man’s allotment – 666 – however high, connotes limitation and emptiness. As impressive as the tower of Babel was to the soul of man, it did not reach to heaven, it could not reconcile fallen man with God, or attain the life of the Maker of Life.

    I am not sure with real clarity of the association but I believe the 144,000 are probably this company of prophets representing this testimony of heaven and earth to the Lord. It is also likely, it seems to be that these witnesses are being called out at this very time, given the other signs in evidence that the culmination of this age is so very near.

    In the time of Elijah there was a hidden remnant of prophets, and in the time of John the Baptist there were his small group of disciples, many of which left him to follow the Lord. Perhaps this too is indicative and typical of what will be at this future time.

    Will we pray therefore, dear saints, not so much that we will know who these witnesses are, but that in fact, we ourselves may be one of them.

      Brother Wayne quotes……………..

      “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, (Deut 30:19)”

      Amen brother, this will be the call of the remnant. I also believe the 144,000 to be a symbolic number, representing all those who will and are being called to present life and death before the people. They will not be a popular group, but then they hated our Lord they will also hate us……………….brother Frank

    ….thank you, thank you, thank you….most of the time i can not put into words my excitement of the Lord Jesus soon return. I attend a church that has 3 services, about 1800 people. But no fire for the Lord and His power and authority. It is church light for sure….and the pastor is friends with rick warren. I have met with the pastor as i was asked to join the church in order to serve as a facilitor for a bible study…the thing that sent up a red flag was i had to commit to church doctrine, which has several teachings on purpose driven life….i said i felt rick warren comprimised God’s Word. Pastor stood his ground of rick warren being a godly man and defended all his actions. I said i would not sign a commitment like that…so i can not help with the bible study. Pastor did not take away me praying with people after service…of which maybe 1 person out of the whole church comes up for prayer. The church fells dead to the power and authority we have to pray with and heal the body of Christ…there is a spirit of unbelief that miracles are not for today. People do pray for each other, but there is no change…they still have sickness, chaos, etc….i just want to shout wake up people…God loves us and has given us His power. I will pray and as soon as we are done…that person choose to start talking about still being a victim…..we are victorious and we have to use our words to speak Gods truth over us. Anyway, this vision is right on….most of the church is so busy with worldly things, they can’t receive God’s miracles ! He is coming soon…and I AM AS EXCITED AS CAN BE!!!

      Amen sister, God has His remnant people everywhere. They are victorious, because He was victorious. Sister, your church seems like a very typical church. Stay close to the Lord and if you can, find fellowship with people who are excited about the fact that Jesus is coming soon. He is not coming for the half-hearted. He is coming for a people that find all their peace in Him, all their joy in Him, all their fulfillment in Him. for a people who hunger and thirst after His presence, a people that have been ruined for the things of this world because they have spent moments, times in His presence, they have experienced a piece of eternity, they have entered in behind the veil, who is the Lord Jesus, into hevaen itslef before the very throne of our Heavenly Father. A place where all things are possible, a place where we bow in reverence and adoration, where the glory of the Lord fills the temple, where we cry Holy, Holy, Holy……………….brother Frank

    This vision is so right on! I love that the Lord made it so easy for us to get it by using the Ark of His Presence. His Glory is to be reflected through His bride…that is also where His power is, in His Glory. How wonderful to be part of this beautiful dance at this time in history…how hard it will be also, but we will not love our lives so much as to shrink back from death! Hallelujah!!!

    Thank you Frank for your many good words and sharing this vision, you are my brother in Christ.

    Bro Frank and saints –

    Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. (1 Cor 14)

    In a time of terrible declension, when the testimony of the Lord has fallen, when teaching has been rejected and the true way forsaken for the easy crossless way. When idols assume a disgusting place upon the Lord’s alter – this is not the time for more or deeper teaching, for more information and knowledge. Is the time for the prophetic voice, when those who have been hidden away with the Lord begin to emerge to speak His heart and His mind. Such a one is wholly given over to Him, to His broken heart, to His pain, to His indignation. They see what He sees and they weep. Yet the weeping soon gives way to His cleansing Spirit, for He will purify His temple and His testimony. He will defend with all He is the integrity of His Holy Name! Then judgment falls! Seals, Trumpets, Bowls – one after another until he has vindicated His Holy Name!

    How long will you waver between two opinions? asked just such a prophet.

    Be blessed by this cutting word from T. Austin-Sparks –

    ************************************************
    You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people. (1 Peter 2:9)

    “You are a holy nation,” a nation separated from this world unto God. New birth means that, oh, that that was made clear to all right there at the beginning how utter this thing is. The Lord Jesus left people in no doubt about this; a cleavage utter and absolute. He would take risks with people, you would probably say: “Oh, why put them off, why run the risk of offending them, why discourage them saying ‘except, except, except’ all the time?” Ah, He was taking all the risks necessary about this because the reality, the awful reality of this: you CANNOT, you cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven while you cling to this kingdom inimical to God, in any way…. How much the New Testament has to say about this, a walk in holiness that is separate unto God in heart, in spirit, in life, from this world. And if we knew it, a very large degree of our education, our spiritual education and our discipline in the Christian life under the hand of the HOLY Spirit, has to do with those things in us which are mixed up….

    The Lord calls for distinctiveness of life and testimony, real distinctiveness of life and testimony. Is our life, dear friends, is your life and my life in this world in our connections and associations and so on, quite distinct, no mistaking to what realm we belong, to Whom we belong? No mistaking it? Or are we mixed in, compromising, keeping on good terms with this world and its people under the devil’s hand? If so, we stand to lose terribly…. Is there something quite distinctive about our lives that says that man, that woman, that young man, that young woman is utter for God, there’s no doubt about it, you see it all the time, they are utter for God; they are not playing at things, there’s no compromise with them. Now this sounds hard, but it’s necessary. Do you see what’s involved? Dear friends, the secret of power is holiness! It is. The secret of power is holiness. If our lives are powerless it may be due to this lack somewhere, somehow, of this utterness for God, this separation unto God, of some kind of compromise somehow, somewhere, with the prince of this world who’s robbing us of our spiritual power and vitality on his own ground. The secret of power is holiness; whatever you forget, remember that! (TAS)

    How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him. (1 Kings 18:21 ESV)

    That word was never addressed to the unsaved. It was never intended for them. It is only rarely that the unsaved are in the position of two opinions. More often than not they are of no opinion. This is what the prophet really said to the people: “How long limp ye from one side to another?” He viewed them as lame, and lamed by uncertainty, lamed by indecision, paralyzed by an unsettled issue. Oh, how an unsettled issue does paralyze the life. Have a controversy with the Lord, an unsettled issue with the Lord, and your whole life is lamed, is paralyzed; you are limping first one way and then the other; there is no sense of stability about your way.

    So the prophet called for the issue to be settled. How long limp ye from one side to the other? Settle this issue one way or the other. If Jehovah be God, let Him have His place, His full rights; settle it once and for all. If Baal is god, well then let us be settled. But until that is done you are crippled, you are paralyzed, and the whole secret of your being in that weak, indefinite, unstable, uncertain place is that God is not having His full rights; there is a dividedness in your life, a dividedness in your own soul, because other interests and considerations are in view. The dividedness may be in your home life, where you have power, authority and influence, and you are not standing one hundred percent for the Lord’s interests there. It may be working in other directions, but wherever it is present the result is that deep down in your being you are not satisfied, you are not at rest. You may be busy, you may be occupied, you may be rushing hither and thither in the Lord’s name, but you know that deep down there is a lack, an uncertainty, an unsettled state; your spiritual life is limited and paralyzed. It will always be so until the issue is settled and God has His place in fullness in every part and relationship of your life. It is a question of zeal for the Lord, jealousy for the Lord. (TAS)

    ********************************************************************

    Oh dear ones, everything is rushing headlong towards the manifestation, the revealing of all things. There is a separation taking place for those with eyes to see it. First among His own, for this is His way. His holy fire will refine those who will be refined. It will scorch those whose hearts are divided between the things of heaven and things of earth. Will we choose life then, the life that is hidden away with Christ Jesus our God?

    “If therefore ye have been raised with the Christ, seek the things which are above, where the Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God: have your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth; for ye have died, and your life is hid with the Christ in God. When the Christ is manifested who is our life, then shall ye also be manifested with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4)

    Have we truly died then? To this world and everything it represents? To its religion and false christs? Are we soaring above this world in Christ Jesus, on wings of eagles, or are we earthbound and limping along? When Jesus the King is manifest, will we be manifest with Him, in His very life?

    With the rise of such prophets will also come the great whore who will seek to silence them, the one whose drink of choice is the blood of the saints.

    We are so very close dear ones, so very close – and so what will we do?
