“Surely” is a Word The LORD wants YOU to have branded in your heart in this hour.

Hello My son, this is your Heavenly Father, Jehovah Elohim speaking with you this day. You see much of what is going on in your world. You seek out the deeper truths and I have allowed you to see more clearly what is transpiring on the earth.

You rightly discern truth from error. I give all of My obedient children this gift. As each of you move closer to Me and My shining Light, you will be able to discern darkness and error. The closer you draw to Me, the easier it is to spot the lies and deceit of the evil one. Many of My chosen are still slumbering in their sin, oblivious of what is around them, for they have assimilated into the world. But so very, very soon now, I will shake them from their slumber and show them My Truth, which is the ONLY Truth. This is the great end-times harvest – the latter rains of My Spirit falling on My people. All over the earth I now wake My chosen ones – those who have books written in My heavenly library. Each book is for each of My chosen ones. If you draw near to Me and are obedient to My leading, then you will fulfill what has been written, even before the foundations of the world were laid. You who are now obedient are fulfilling your story that I have written about your life. Now I waken your brothers and sisters all over the earth so that they, too, can fulfill what I have written for them to do. It is your obedience that will fulfill what is written. If you doubt, then there will be chapters in your book that will be unfulfilled. Those who have chapters that are unfulfilled will suffer loss at the Judgment Seat of Christ. So take this seriously My children. Obedience is so very important to Me, for it allows Me to bless you and use you to lead others to Me. Great is your reward if you fulfill all that is in your book. Obedience is the key. I love each of you, My children. Draw near while it is still relatively easy to find Me, for soon the darkness grows darker. Your Heavenly Father, Jehovah Elohim.

Father added this to me at a later time:
Draw near to Me at all times now, My son. You will fulfill your book with ease if you are in constant contact with Me in Spirit and in Truth. Beware of the evil one, for he is crafty and will try to distract you from Me. But as you cry out to Me, I AM there!

Romans 13:11-12 (KJV)
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

2 Corinthians 5:9-11 (KJV)
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

(Carol’s note: Brings to mind “In the River” on Jesus Culture’s live recording: Let It Echo which I was fortunate enough to hear being recorded in the worshiping audience, and Jordan Feliz’s “The River” from the Beloved recording.)

In a vision I saw a river from the Spirit of God flowing through the earth and I heard The LORD say to His People, “Stay in The River!”

In a night vision, I heard a screeching roar as I looked and saw a demonic face coming up out of the earth.

It was the roar that the Bible talks about our enemy being “as a roaring Lion.”

He seemed desperate and tormented that the saints of God were now awakening and that he was now beginning to be unearthed.

I saw Him desperate!  Then I saw a river from the Spirit of God flowing through the earth and I heard The LORD say to His People,  “Stay in The River!”

Do not be on dry ground!   Stay in the river!

“Now is not the time to be on dry ground where the enemy is roaming about seeking whom he may devour.

He is now desperate and lashing out in a frenzy, trying to cover up his tracks but if you will stay in the river right now and if you will go deeper, he will not be able to harm you in his frenzy!

Yes. Come deeper into The River of My Spirit that is beginning to flow across this earth and in the flow, there will be peace, joy, and protection for this will be ‘the secret place’ in the days ahead!

Mark My Words!  A flood of My Spirit is coming through!

Do not be caught on the shores!  I AM the true Lion and in The River is where you shall hear My Roar, for My Roar shall come forth from The River, out of the Zion of God that is in the flow!”

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but The LORD will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel,”    Joel 3:16 NKJV.

As winter came to an end, and we ushered in the beauty of springtime, it was a time of tuning into the sound of the shift beginning to take place and I heard “Deep is calling unto deep!”

The LORD was calling us to wait upon Him and renew our strength; prepare to mount up and soar as the eagle.

It was such a powerful time of pondering, listening, trusting, and mounting up to ascend with Him.

We shall not grow weary for He has given us rest and equipped us in the quiet moments.

He has given us quiet moments to ponder our responsibilities, to grow in maturity, meditate on the process of equipping leaders and pioneers that pave the way.  It was a time of meditating on accountability.

One of the questions I heard in my heart as I prayed for the Warrior Bride was, “Who are you accountable to?  Who are you listening to?  God or man?”

Instantly I sensed that He is shining His light brightly on the path of those called out as leaders , to be willing to take on greater responsibility with a single focus.  Clarity has come to the called out ones who have been drafted into The Army of The LORD.

HE spoke to me yesterday on the 29th day that, “Some will step in, some will step down, and some will step up.

In addition to some taking steps, many will have to turn around and look at Me so I can place their feet on the new path, for I have made a sharp turn at a dead end street and they are stuck at a dead end street called FAMILIAR.

I AM here to put them on the path of life and I AM paving the way via a new Subdivision called NEW DAY.

They will live on a street called TRUST THE UNKNOWN in a house called FULLNESS of IDENTITY.”  

The number 29 biblically is often denoted as Departure.

He firmly said much opposition is a form of criticism being applied as a direct force to hinder progress, but I AM raising us leaders who have grown past those threats and have set their face like flint to go forward and in everything give thanks.

They will thrive on opposition as they rise up to a higher new dimension.  These called out leaders will recognize it is an element that has taken on a role of purifying any mixture in them that would hinder them in their responsibility.

That opposition is awakening areas of complacency, hardness of heart, and self-deception that has made many stagnant.

A great awakening is upon us and The LORD is shaking and waking us to be totally aware, alert and astounded as we walk in a bond of unity AS ONE to be ONE as Jesus and the Father are one.

He called us up higher to the secret place to prepare our hearts to have a heart like David.  The Saul spirit that is manifesting today as jealousy and envy is deadly.

He is exhorting us to do whatever is necessary to keep envy and strife out of our life for where there is strife, there is every evil work.

The word envy in Greek is zelos and denotes a fierce desire to promote one’s own ideas and convictions to the exclusion of everyone else.  When this attitude continues, it leads to strife.

Strife in the Greek is eritheia, used by the ancient Greeks to stand for a political party.

There is much more that could be said regarding that, but The LORD was revealing to me in scripture how James 3:16 final word says: “For where envy and strife is, there is confusion.”

In the atmosphere of confusion, co-dependency and manipulation thriving together have brought disorder and every vile practice but God is establishing order in HIS house and in His land for true alignment and authority.

Beloved ones, The LORD would remind us today that it is what is going on the inside of us not what is going on outside of us that will make the difference.

HE is raising us up to stand on mountains, all the mountains of our culture and be different in order to make a difference.

For we must embrace the true identity He has given us.  He lives in us, HE is inside of us.  We can ascend to heavenly places with Him.  We are seated there.

As a time of darkness and cleansing comes in the earth, as it will, hold on tight to the Father’s unchanging hand and seek the Father’s heart with faith knowing HE is just in all His ways.

In the midst of the storm, speak peace.  It is our time to Arise.  So Rise up and take possession.

His Remnant Army is no longer entangled with petty differences or blinded by divisive prideful platforms.

His army is no longer short sighted for He is enlarging our perspective to include a new opening.

He is opening up the eyes of our understanding to envision the astonished beyond measure movement that is coming upon the earth as we have prayed “on earth as it is in heaven.”

Occupy doesn’t mean move in and keep asking, it is defined to  “take control of (a place, especially a country) by military conquest or settlement”

We shall be known as The Roaring Bride as justice is coming on the earth one wave after another wave until injustice is pulled up by the very roots and His Kingdom is established by His relentless love.

We are being exhorted to pursue with passion that which sets our heart ablaze and let that greatness come through humility.

Walk circumspectly with wisdom in every area, choose words wisely and endeavor to walk in the light with God and man.

I recently had a vision of the finger of The LORD drawing a circle that connected dots and I asked, “What is that?”  He spoke and said,  “I AM bringing my people full circle to recover some things they have lost along their journey.

There was very little understanding and too many presumptions during those time of many stops and starts.

It was a time of great grace where your trust was tried and tested in preparation for the day you are now experiencing. 

You were being developed in greater depths of truth in order to live in complete trust, truth and obedience in a time of great deception,” says The LORD.

TRUST, TRUTH, and OBEDIENCE will be your anchor in the storm.

Obedience simply put, says,  “I believe in you more than myself and I am not trusting in myself but I am fully persuaded and I trust in you Lord!”

The LORD is bringing us into a time where we will truly be astonished beyond measure as He steps in for such a time as this with signs and wonders that we have only imagined in our wildest imagination.

Be Encouraged! Hello My son, this is Jehovah Elohim speaking with you this day. Yes, I AM calling you to write for I have much for you.

You see, the hour is late, and even so you are looking to a bright future in asking Me for good gifts,which I AM quick to answer. I want you to know that although the time is very short indeed, you will be granted the desires of your heart, for your heart seeks good things from Me and is pure and seeks the salvation of others first and foremost. You are in alignment with Me, and this is the key to living a blessed life.

I have been holding you and all of My children in the palm of My mighty hands, protecting you from attacks from the evil one, but now, as the darkness grows blacker, I now pour out blessing upon blessing to My obedient and loving children. The earth is being plunged into great darkness and it cannot be stopped as My Word must be fulfilled as written. Do not fear what you see with your eyes, for what you see is temporary. Instead, draw near to Me in Spirit and in Truth and I will guide you along the lighted path towards Me, and in doing so you will bring many with you. Many are now distracted by the world and are far from Me, but I tell you, not one will be lost in the end. I know My sheep, and My sheep no Me. None will be lost! So do not be distracted or discouraged as I AM King and I AM for you. If I AM for you, who can be against you? Be encouraged, as My will is unfolding for all My faithful ones. Do not resist. My work for you will be enjoyable to the end! I love you, My son. I love all My chosen ones. Soon you will all be with Me in Heaven, and until then you will be showered with many blessings. Receive these blessings with joy My children. I come quickly! Your Heavenly Father, Jehovah Elohim.

John 4:23-24 (KJV)
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
John 10:27-28 (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways,”   James 1:8.

“There is great division in the Church, because many have bifurcated thinking patterns as they never yielded to healing and deliverance that was needed and also because of willful disobedience to My Word.

He Who is the Living Word will pour out oil and new wine and The Fear of The LORD will return to His Church.

For great challenges lie ahead of You, and El Rachum (the Compassionate God) will once again have mercy on His People because Truth has fallen in the streets.

Few men take it to heart.  Baal worship will be eradicated in My Church as I break chains of bondage put on many from their youth.

Many have been told you never look back, based on one scripture, to fit their own ideology.  Many have had partial healing due to inadequacies in the Churches and due to limited healing and deliverance done in the Church, where many don’t even believe I still heal.

Many even teach healing, but they have unbelief in their hearts, so that when they pray for healing — not much happens.  Because of that, unbelief is blocking freedom for My Spirit to rule and reign.

There are many with closed hearts to the Spirit of God, because they’re too busy to listen, too busy to put Me first, even though they love Me.

There is so much that is distracting, because you have very busy lives.  I know how hard life can be for you with family to care for and work.

I AM available 24/7!  I AM ever interceding for you.  I already see your challenges so just come to Me in your thoughts, worship Me when you do have time that I can Infuse you with My LOVE and POWER to OVERCOME.

Keep the sabbath holy that you can have communion with Me.  Sing a song to Me on your bed at night!  Know that I know even your thoughts so give all that concerns you to ME!

I AM roaring out of Zion in this hour and I will keep my promises.  I AM healing you, so declare it!  Give thanks for it daily!  And I will bring more!

My deliverance is coming like a whirlwind to sweep you off your feet.  Freedom is at hand!!  The Spirit of The LORD, Wisdom, and Knowledge, Understanding, The Spirit of Counsel and Might and The Spirit of The Fear of The LORD will fill my beloveds to overflowing and your buildings will not contain it all.

It will flow out like a rushing tsunami to the rest of the world and overtake many who are caught in the enemy’s trap.

There will be no excuse for not knowing ME.  I will wash away all the bifurcated thinking in those who are Mine, and in all who are elect.

For You are My ambassadors of Peace and Love to the world.

Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is LORD one day!  Be UNAFRAID of the threats of the enemy.

To be absent in body is to be present with ME in heaven!”

Scriptures:

“Elijah approached all the people and said, “How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If The LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people [of Israel] did not answer him [so much as] a word,”   1 Kings 18:21 AMP.

“Save and help and rescue, Lord, for godly people cease to be, for the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.  They speak deceitful and worthless words to one another; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak,”   Psalm 12:1-2 AMP.

“Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring Is a righteous man who yields and compromises his integrity before the wicked,”    Proverbs 25:26 AMP.

“Then The LORD said, “Because this nation approaches [Me only] with their words And honors Me [only] with their lip service, but they remove their hearts far from Me, and their reverence for Me is a tradition that is learned by rote [without any regard for its meaning],”   Isaiah 29:13 AMP.

“Woe to you, [self-righteous] scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites.  For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and robbery and self-indulgence (unrestrained greed),”    Matthew 23:25 AMP.

“Deacons likewise must be men worthy of respect [honorable, financially ethical, of good character], not double-tongued [speakers of half-truths], not addicted to wine, not greedy for dishonest gain,”   1 Timothy 3:8 AMP.

“Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people],”   James 4:8 AMP.

“Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world — the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things] — these do not come from the Father, but are from the world,”   1 John 2:15-16 AMP.

‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold (invigorating, refreshing) nor hot (healing, therapeutic); I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 So because you are lukewarm (spiritually useless), and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth [rejecting you with disgust]. 17 Because you say, “I am rich, and have prospered and grown wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked [without hope and in great need], 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold that has been heated red hot and refined by fire so that you may become truly rich; and white clothes [representing righteousness] to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be seen; and healing salve to put on your eyes so that you may see. 19 Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I rebuke and discipline [showing them their faults and instructing them]; so be enthusiastic and repent [change your inner self — your old way of thinking, your sinful behavior—seek God’s will]. 20 Behold, I stand at the door [of the Church] and continually knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him (restore him), and he with Me. 21 He who overcomes [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God], I will grant to him [the privilege] to sit beside Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down beside My Father on His throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear and heed what the Spirit says to the Churches.’”   Revelation 3:15-22 AMP.
