A Word From the Lord: River of Separation AND UPDATE

Hello, I’m going to share with you a video that a friend of mine shared on Facebook. The title of this blog post is my own; I do not think the Lord gave the man in the video a title for the word delivered to him. There is a theme of a river of separation within the word which is why I titled this post thus.

Before you watch the video, I want to take a moment to offer some confirmation to this word. I believe the Lord has been saying similar things to me over the last couple of years, both in words and dreams. I received a word on Sunday, January 16th, 2022, but was told not to share it just yet. Today, January 17th, is when I saw the video below. I believe I was supposed to wait until I saw this video so that it could offer confirmation.

Sometimes when listening to a video such as this all of the information can get kind of clumped together, so I have taken notes about the parts that I think the Lord has confirmed for me. Below are the notes that I took from the video in bold and my confirmation will be in italics.

First, let me share with you the complete word that I received on January 16th. I shared it with my dad as well as an older woman who has become a sort of mentor and my personal prayer warrior. We are all prayer warriors, but she has been called specifically for that purpose and I’ve never met anyone more devoted to it than she. Here is the January 16th word which I received in my spirit and I typed it as I heard it (bold is confirmation of the video):

The time to play church is over. No longer will He tolerate going through the motions of tradition and religion. The time has arrived, after much leading by the Holy Spirit, to step out in what we believe. No more shall we compromise with the enemy. No more shall we be conformed to the patterns of this world. The vaccine isn’t about whether or not it causes good or harm. It is about a substance created by the enemy of men’s souls meant to purchase their very souls. It is about manipulation and control, it is a spiritual warfare. No more will God pat us on the back for being ignorant. May those with ears to hear-hear, otherwise may their ears be shut up. No more capitulating with the enemy. If one is not walking in the Spirit and discerning things as they truly are, they will be shocked. There’s absolutely no excuse any longer. No excuse for the American Church. The Holy Spirit has been preparing a remnant army, for the world is about to feel His power rain down upon them. Many who are lost will be found. Many who think they were found, those who have been comfortable in their religion, may hear the words “I never knew you”. This is not a time to capitulate; this is not a time to lean on one’s own understanding, but it is a time to rise up and say I truly do believe that what I believe is really real. Our children are leaving the church because there is no power there. They see repetitive motion and they hear legalistic judgments but they do not experience the true love and power of God. A relationship with God has not been nurtured so the American Church has become a boring club rather than a place in which we can see Heaven.

This will be no more! God is about to spit out the lukewarm. He has no stomach for it any longer. If only the hurting world can see and feel and experience the true love and power of God through Jesus Christ! Time is almost up. He has been preparing a peculiar people, a remnant of warriors. This is not a battle against flesh and blood, but against powers of darkness and wickedness in high places. Only those being led by the power of the Holy Spirit can discern the matters of the Spirit. This is a message to the American Church. Do not lean on your own understanding, but submit yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up and He will guide you! Amen and Hallelujah, to God be all the glory, now and forever more! Maranatha!

Now, here is a word I received on November 3, 2020 (yes it talks about Trump winning and I absolutely believe that he did, so don’t be throwing around the word false prophet because the word did not say he will remain publicly the president it just said he would win):

“America was given as a blessing but you (American church) have made it an idol. Even though Trump will win, judgment will still come to the church. I will plug the flood of evil that is the Democratic party, but judgment will still come. The church has allowed the trickle of evil, even sipping from it, and declaring it refreshing. But I will not share my people! I will not be mocked. America was to be a light unto the nations but you have worshiped the reflection of light instead of the True Light- the Lord Jesus Christ. You hold on to a set of ideals which appear good, but you have confused them and made them an idol. Patriotism is fine, but not when it replaces Me in your heart. Do not confuse the blessing with He who blesses, for I shall surely curse as easily as I bless. So says the Lord.”

January 8, 2022 I sent the following text to someone: Food for thought: 12 spies went into the promised land. 10 came back and said the people are too large; we look like grasshoppers to them, and only 2 said God is bigger. The entire Israeli army coward at Goliath and only one little boy said God is bigger.

Okay, now for the notes on the video. Again, the word given in the video is in bold and my confirmation is in italics:

* The moment of judgement among my people (see November 3, 2020 word as well as January 16, 2022)

* This season will bring the paradox of flooding and dry land crossings (see November 3, 2020 “plug the flood of evil”…. plugging the flood is like a dam, holding back the water to reveal dry land. See also the dream posted below the video)

* A dividing river that separates the way of the 10 from the way of the two. (See January 8, 2022 above)

*Those who called themselves my people are not all my people. (See January 16, 2022 and naturally Matthew 7:21-23)

*The musicians are being gathered and the warriors that have been trained through the Holy fire that flows from my throne are about to meet. (See January 16, 2022)

* This shall be a sign for this generation: I will blast from my nostrils and the river will be open for my holy ones, no resistance is their anointing, favor shall flow from my throne. (See dream posted below the video)

*The light of my flames will become more dim for those who chose to stay in the comfort of their own desert. (See January 16, 2022)

*The sons of Joshua and daughters of Caleb are about to eat of the fruit of my land. ( Observation: Joshua was a Jew and Caleb was a Gentile grafted into God’s people)

Now, here’s the video. I’ve never listened to this man before, as far as I can recall. I know absolutely nothing about him.

In a couple of the notes above I mentioned a dream. Here it is:

February 5, 2021- I was in my grandfather’s backyard. The yard was full of people. I do not know why, nor did I see faces. The wind was very strong and it was a torrential rain. I knelt on my knees with my arms stretched to Heaven. An invisible shield enveloped me – like being enclosed inside a bubble. I began speaking with a feeling of power and courage flooding me. I said in a loud voice, “Repent! Jesus Christ is Lord!”

This dream was further confirmed on April 19th 2021. In my spirit I heard, ” My people have been going through the motions, but they do not know me. There will be a latter rain. A latter rain of my Holy Spirit upon the earth, upon the peoples, upon all flesh. Hosea 6.”

And that, my dear readers, is all for now. I may also add, though, that Kent Christmas has recently given similar words. As I was writing this post I went through my journal and was reminded of several interesting things the Lord has shown me, so I may share them in the very near future, Lord willing.

In the meantime, when you see these things begin to happen look up and be ready, for our redemption draws near! Maranatha!

It has been brought to my attention that the man speaking in the video has a bit of a history. Plainly put: he spent seven years in prison for wire fraud. Here is an article that talks about it: https://www.wnd.com/2015/08/well-known-christian-teacher-sentenced-to-prison/

This does not change my mind about the video or this post. Sometimes people get mixed up in things and have to pay the consequences. None of us are perfect, none of us are guiltless. I don’t know if he knew what he was messed up in back then. I just know that God can speak through whomever He pleases and if there are several people who love the Lord and are seeking His voice, who are hearing similar messages from the Lord, then we need to pay attention. This post is an endorsement of what I believe the Lord is saying, not an endorsement of myself or any other man.

2022: A Year For Joy

As we head into 2022, many of us will be reflecting upon the previous year and making decisions about how we may want to improve in the coming year. It is when we resolve, or make up our minds, to make positive changes in our lives. Some people resolve to exercise more, eat healthy, lose weight, save money, be more organized etc. Others may choose to read more or learn a new skill.

I don’t know about you, but I have recently realized that much of my prayer time is self-centered. Even when praying for other people, it is often because I care for that person. Like most people, praying for those whom I do not like does not come naturally. I find myself making self-centered requests. Sure, I thank the Lord and praise Him, but most of the time my prayers consist of help me with this or help me with that, or help so-and-so with this or that.

It occurred to me that I have not been a very good friend to the Greatest Friend of all time. Think about it: what if you were in a relationship with someone who was constantly asking something from you, and sure they may say thank you, but they never bother to inquire about how you feel or what you think or what you want? It seems a very one-sided relationship doesn’t it? Yes, I found myself treating God like he was some sort of wish-granter… A cosmic genie. Don’t get me wrong, the Lord delights in His children and He wants to give us good things, but He does not exist to serve us. We exist to serve Him!

It also occurred to me that so often I think of God as very serious and lacking in emotion. And if He does express emotion, it is usually jealousy or anger. Since we know that God is love and we know that one of the fruits of the Spirit is joy, He certainly expresses those emotions as well. So I asked Him, “Lord, what makes you smile?”

That is when I realized my goal for 2022. I want my words, actions, and every fiber of my being to make Him smile. I want to bring Him joy. I want Him to smile, not because I think I may be blessed in some way, but because I love Him. After all, He loved and saved me even though I don’t even come close to deserving it.

So how do we bring Him joy?

The very first thing we do that brings God joy is to accept His plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. He gave us the Best of Heaven and it brings Him joy when we claim it, receive it, and appreciate it.

In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, John 1:12

Once we have become a child of God, then it makes sense that we bring Him joy in a similar manner in which our children bring us joy. As a mother I think of those things which my children do that make me smile and bring me joy. Those moments when they say or do something that makes me proud of them, though their very existence makes me proud.

Faith and Trust:

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

It pleases God when we trust Him; when we take Him at His word and we have faith and trust that He will provide and care for us. As a child trusts that his parent loves him, and looks out for his best interests, so we must trust the Lord. When the world is scary and life is tough, we need to trust in the promises of God to help us through it. We trust that He can see the bigger picture and can guide us on the safe path.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6

But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you change and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3

Obedience:

but so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me. John 14:31

Let’s face it, no parent is happy with a disobedient child. When my children disobey me I don’t go around rejoicing and smiling. Any commands I give them are meant to teach and train them in some way, or to keep them safe. Furthermore, I do not put unrealistic demands on them. We would never expect a 4-year-old to do the chores of a 12-year-old. I cannot expect them to do something without first teaching them how to do it and knowing they are capable. God is the same way towards us. He delights in our obedience because He knows what is best, and He knows what we need to mature.

Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. John 14:23

Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” John 14:21

But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’ Jeremiah 7:23

WWJD:

We’ve all heard the phrase “what would Jesus do”. Once we become children of God, He begins His work in us to conform us to the likeness of His son Jesus Christ. Upon the baptism of Jesus, the dove descended upon Him and a voice from Heaven declared “this is my beloved son in Whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17) Jesus pleased the Father in everything He did and spoke. If we want to make God smile, we need to be more like Jesus. All of the other ways listed above can be summed up in Him. Jesus is the fullness of God’s love and joy!

the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 1John 2:6

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1John 3:2-3

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Ephesians 5:1‭-‬2

My goal for 2022, and indeed for the rest of my days, is to look for ways to make God smile. I do not do this in an effort to gain some sort of blessing, but rather because there is no loftier achievement in life. There is nothing of greater value than God’s smile. Nothing and no one is more worthy of all glory, honor, and praise. There is so much more that I could say, so many ways we can make God smile, but just striving to be like Jesus and looking for ways to serve Him is certainly a good start.

Perhaps if the church truly sought after the Lord’s smile; if His smile became our driving force, we could surely change the world.
