    Amen! Make way for the LORD OF LORDS and KING OF KINGS! Jesus Christ, Messiah!

    'FALL PROPHETIC WORD: THE TIME TO DIE IS UPON US

    I have recently become increasingly fascinated with the prophetic ministry of John the Baptist, who famously "prepared the way of the Lord". (Mark 1:3) My heart has continually been yearning for a Third Great Awakening in America, yet I honestly find myself on most nights constantly asking God, "How is this possible with the American Church so asleep?" I believe the Holy Spirit has drawn me to John's prophetic ministry in this season because there is hidden revelation in his calling that ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ must give our ears to right now.

    I have been prayerfully meditating on John's statement in John 3:30 as he said, "I must decrease, so that He might increase". Through this extraordinary confession, I hear the Holy Spirit beckoning myself and many other ministers in this hour like the voice of many rushing waters! I believe the Holy Spirit is saying to us, "It's time to commit ministry suicide like John the Baptist did!" Are you a pastor, traveling minister, or church leader? I believe the Holy Spirit is saying to us,

    "I am releasing a fresh season of
    crucifixion! This is the hour where I will test your motives and the intentions of your heart like never before. I am about to grant you greater platforms and open doors, but you must not be deceived. I am not making a way for your name and ministry, but I am making a way for My Son through you. How many more offerings will you take to benefit yourself and ministry and not My great Name? How many more opportunities will you miss to give me all the honor, glory, and praise? Im releasing grace for extending fasting. I invite you to come feast on Me THIS FALL as I strip away the pride, jealousy, and selfish ambitions hiding deep within your own hearts."

    John the Baptist declared, "I must decrease..." What if this became a specialized and central focus for all Christian ministers? What if we intentionally and purposely took every opportunity to die to our titles and reputation so that Jesus Christ might be acknowledged and worshipped in all things. What if our sowing into the glorification of Christ produced a lifestyle of humility, prayer, and fasting? I believe God is prophetically calling out to the ministers in America saying, "The Third Great Awakening will come through your empty bellies (fasting), you building monuments to your nothingness (reputation), and your names being burned up on the fiery altar of My presence, power, and love (titles)."

    In the season where large crowds were gathering and John the Baptist had all eyes on him, he committed ministry suicide by boldly declaring, "I'm not even fit to tie the sandals of Jesus! I'm not the Christ! I've got to get out of the way! I fulfilled my purpose. Get your eyes off me and fix them on the Lamb of God. It's time to get low!" (Paraphrase mine)

    Revival History

    In the days of John Wesley and George Whitfield (preachers of the First Great Awakening in America), the followers of George Whitfield came to him and inquired as to how he would like to be remembered in history. (Wesley and his followers would eventually start the Methodist denomination.) How would George Whitfield desire to be remembered? Just like John the Baptist, the crowds were growing and all eyes were on him. I believe his answer captures God's desires for this generation of preachers in America, believing for a Third Great Awakening. May Whitfield's response become our prayer, declaration, and prophetic word that we live by this Fall. He committed ministry suicide by saying,

    " Let the name of Whitefield perish, but Christ be glorified. Let my name die everywhere, let even my friends forget me, if by that means the cause of the blessed Jesus may be promoted.
    But what is Calvin, or what is Luther? Let us look above names and parties; let Jesus be our all in all—So that He is preached. I care not who is uppermost. I know my place, even to be the servant of all.

    I am content to wait till the judgement day for the clearing up of my reputation; and after I am dead I desire no other epitaph than this, “Here lies G.W. What sort of man he was the great day will discover.”

    As church leaders and saints from August to October, may our names, reputations, ministry credentials and accomplishments perish so that Jesus Christ be glorified. Ultimately, let the road of humility and meekness become our way of life and code of conduct that we live by.

    In Him,

    Jeremiah Johnson'

    This is what the Lord has to say about people who are overly concerned with someone else's oil.

    'When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain until I return, what is that to you? You follow Me!' John 22:21-22

    If you're TOO preoccupied concerning yourself with someone else's oil, you may hinder your own growth in the Spirit of Christ.

    You are the only one who can hinder your own growth in Christ.

    'Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word.

    But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”

    And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42

    I will receive this as additional confirmation. Good encouragement to keep preaching/living the TRUTH of radical repentance in Jesus Christ! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] (You guys are strong!!!)

    'Forewarned is forearmed'

    'DISTURBING PROPHETIC DREAM- - Jeremiah Johnson

    Several months ago while I was extensively studying Matthew 7:22-24 and asking God for increased revelation, I had one of the most disturbing prophetic dreams of my life. The Scripture I was studying in Matthew says, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name did we not cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.”

    In the prophetic dream, I was taken to hell where I saw all these leaders and individuals who had performed miracles, cast out demons, and prophesied. What I was shown next, I will never forget. The Holy Spirit showed me long lines of people behind all of these leaders. He immediately revealed to me that these were all the people that had received the miracles, prophecies, and had been at one time delivered. As I gazed at the people in these lines, He said to me, "Did they not RECEIVE miracles, prophecy, and deliverance, yet I never knew them?”

    I woke up from the dream alarmed and startled. I said to the Holy Spirit, "So there are not only people that will perform signs, wonders, and miracles that will be sent to hell, but also people who receive all these things that will also be in hell. Why?" Immediately the Holy Spirit spoke again to me and said, "Because those that worked miracles, prophesied, and cast out demons never preached the full gospel of Jesus Christ which is the message of repentance. They were so in love with the gifts that I had given them that people became trophies and souvenirs to them. When My power would manifest in their ministries, they would tell people that I loved them, but never that they needed to repent for their sins. I tell you that a great deception will sweep over the signs and wonders movement in America. Beware of the ministries where miracles and prophecies will flow, but the message of repentance is a no go. You have been warned".'

    Teachers, you are not being 'unloving', 'judgemental' or 'critical'...we need you!

    'THE TEACHERS ARE ARISING

    One of the greatest needs of the hour is for 5 fold ministry "Teachers" to arise full of the Holy Ghost and fire.

    I'm talking about Teachers who are sound in doctrine, know the Bible frontwards and backwards, and feed the body of Christ meat, not croutons.

    I'm praying for Teachers who will root and ground this generation in the Word of God, verse upon verse, precept upon precept, full of unction because they actually have a prayer life.

    We must have anointed Bible Teachers in this generation who when they speak, the people's heads turn and they say, "We have never heard anyone teach with this kind of authority." (Mark 1:21-28).

    I want to encourage all the 5 fold ministry "Teachers" in the body of Christ to function with unction! We don't need anymore people chasing and posing like wannabee "Apostles" and "Prophets" because they think it's cool and popular. Be who God called you to be and don be ashamed of it one bit!

    It's totally okay that people don't fall down in the altars when you pray for them, that you don't give out prophecies like candy, or you don't see crazy miracles all the time. Just teach and handle the Word of God with integrity and clarity. You are a tremendous blessing and greatly needed in this generation who is chasing after the wind and their feelings. I'm with you, praying for you, and I believe all of heaven has its eyes open you in this hour. Teach!'

    You can be touched by the power of God so intimately and remain untouched by the transformation that comes from KNOWING Jesus Christ. It's a heart issue...this intimacy without covenant. The Judas Spirit.

    'Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”

    They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”

    Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And JUDAS, who betrayed Him, also STOOD WITH THEM.

    Now when He said to them, “I AM he,” they DREW BACK and FELL TO THE GROUND.

    Then He ASKED THEM AGAIN, “Whom are you seeking?”

    And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”

    Jesus answered, “I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,” that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, “Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none.” John 18:4-9

    'For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

    For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.' Hebrews 6:4-8

    'Pursue peace with all men, as well as holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. Be careful that no one falls short of the grace of God, so that no root of bitterness will spring up to cause trouble and defile many.

    See to it that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected. He could find no ground for repentance, though he sought the blessing with tears' Hebrews 12:14-17.

    Is there such thing as a WEALTHY APOSTLE? Great PERSONAL MAMMON is often attributed to being BLESSED or FAVORED by God. What does Christ say? (Matthew 6:19-24). Here Paul explains something about false Apostles.

    'For I consider that I am not at all inferior to the most eminent apostles. Even though I am UNTRAINED IN SPEECH, yet I AM NOT IN KNOWLEDGE. But we have been thoroughly manifested among you in all things.

    Did I commit sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you FREE of CHARGE? I robbed other churches, taking wages from them to minister to you. And when I was present with you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for what I lacked the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied. And in everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and so I will keep myself. As the truth of Christ is in me, no one shall stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia. Why? Because I do not love you? God knows!

    But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works' 2 Corinthians 11:5-15

    '“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,

    ‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands:

    “I know your WORKS, your LABOUR, your PATIENCE, and that YOU CANNOT BEAR those WHO ARE EVIL. And you have tested those who SAY they are APOSTLES and ARE NOT, and HAVE FOUND them LIARS; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for MY NAME'S SAKE and have NOT BECOME WEARY.

    Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But THIS YOU HAVE, that YOU HATE the DEEDS of the NICOLAITANS, which I ALSO HATE.

    “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’ Revelations 2:1-7

    Nicolaitan- https://www.gotquestions.org/Nicolaitans.html- Philippians 3:17-21, 1 John 2:15-17.

    '"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. "I KNOW that AFTER MY DEPARTURE savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and FROM AMONG YOUR OWN SELVES MEN WILL ARISE, SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS, to DRAW AWAY the DISCIPLES after THEM' Acts 20:28-30

    It's all about Jesus Christ and HIS Gospel TRUTH.

    "There is an identity message. People will sometimes blindly accept everything their pastor, church, denomination, leader, or movement teaches. Why? Because their identity is in the pastor, church, denomination, leader, or movement etc.

    So if the pastor, church, denomination, leader, or movement begins to get off course, the followers will by default continue to defend it to the death...why? Why else? To protect their own identity.

    Whatever you put your identity in you will defend to the death. You see this on a local level in every single church and every single denomination, even in gangs. Every religious leader and military leader knows this.

    Thats why it is SOOO, SOOO important to have our identity grounded in one place and one place only, Jesus Christ and the Gospel and ABSOLUTELY nothing else, not in a church, a denomination, a leader, nor a movement. That way the only thing you will ever defend and die for is Jesus and the Gospel and you will always be right.

    Putting your identity in any other place than Jesus Christ and the Gospel is building on a castle made of sand. "Every castle made of sand will fall into the sea, eventually." And with it, your identity.

    Jesus knew who He was and where He was going. So should we."
