Prophetic Words & Scripture Readings at Live Stream July 3, 2024

Jul 04, 2024

The following are words given by participants at the streamed meeting.  1 Corinthians 14:29 says that "Two or three prophets should speak, and the others weigh carefully what is said."  1 Thess 5:19-21 tells us not to despise prophecies, but to test everything and retain what is good.

At beginning of meeting, John 20:29 & Romans 4:18-21   - "Have you come to believe because you have seen me?  Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."  "Hoping against hope, Abraham believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it was once told him, "Numerous as this shall your descendants be."  Without growing weak in faith he thought of his own body, which was as good as dead (for he was nearly a hundred years old), and of the dead womb of Sarah.  Yet he never questioned or doubted God's promise; rather he was strengthened in faith and gave glory to God, fully persuaded that God could do whatever he had promised."

Prophecy - "Come, come, come.  Open your hearts, I want to embrace you.  I want to call you close to myself, to whisper my love in your ear, in your heart, deep within you, to renew your whole body, mind and spirit so that you are even more aware of me in your life.  I always go before you, I always go.  I'm looking out for your best interest.  I see what happens ahead of you and I move you slightly here and slightly there, so slight that you don't see it but trust.  I'm always walking ahead of you.  My dear, dear children, come, listen, be attentive.  I speak to you often, so wait; as you wait you become more aware of me speaking to you all day long because we walk together.  We walk as one.  My dearest, dearest, dearest love, my fellow saints, we will walk to the Father and I will show you, show you to him and we will love you even more.  Call on the Holy Spirit for the wisdom you need, call.  We're always willing to give it to you.  Call, don't hesitate because I always want to be helping you, guiding you, leading you to each and every day in all your activities."

Prophecy - "I am walking among you, my people.  You may not be all together but I am walking among you.  Open your hands tonight and receive all that I have for you.  Receive my love, receive my grace, receive my favor.  I love you, my people.  Receive."

Response to the prophecy - "Lord, we open our hands to you now, Lord.  And we want to receive all that you have for us, Lord.  We open our hearts to you, we open our hands.  Come, Lord Jesus.  We welcome you and we welcome all that you want to give us, Lord.  Thank you, Lord, so much."

Scripture Reading Matthew 11:28-30 - "Come to me, all you who labour and are burdened and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and humble of heart and you will find rest for yourselves.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."

Scripture Reading John 15:1-13 - "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.  Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, he takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.  You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.  Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in me.  I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in me and I in him, bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.  If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.  My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples.  Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments you will abide in my love; just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.  These things I have spoken to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.  This is my commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

Scripture Reading Psalm 51:10-12 - "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.  Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit."

Prophecy - "My children, do you know why I sacrificed myself for you?  Do you know why I suffered the trials of my Passion for you?  Yet, many do not know this.  Many do not see the cross as the way to salvation.  Many do not understand the resurrection that comes and while in the midst of trials and tribulations.  Tonight, my children, I desire to reveal to you a new concept, perhaps not new for some, but a new concept that this world does not know of.  That it will be through suffering, through the cross that my resurrection will reign.  Time of trust, my children.  Many are suffering.  Many have lost hope.  But this hope I give you tonight, this hope of new life, this hope of victory over times of trial.  I am going to give you a greater abundance of faith and trust, that I am a God who can be victorious over all things.  Do not be afraid of your weaknesses.  Do not be afraid of the challenges.  For I am there with you in the midst of them and I will be victorious through them if you but turn to me and ask me to be your King, your Lord, in your life.  I love you, my children.  I want you to know that all is not lost, that there is true light in the darkness.  Turn to me, my children, and let me reveal this truth to you."

Scripture Reading Psalm 54:4 - "Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me."


Dr. Michael McClymond who wrote a book entitled, The Devil's Temptation, spoke on "Universalism".  A Universalist is someone who believes that finally all human beings will be saved.  It's a radical  position because it doesn't allow for any exception. It's a 100% position.  Everyone is included in the final salvation.  

This message of universalism has been spreading particularly during this new millennium.  Why is this a problem? If everything is a given, why would it make a difference if I choose good or evil?  It undermines the call to exertion and to any kind of a strenuous life, especially in the area of evangelism.  i.e. Fr. Damien.  It undercuts the struggle for holiness. 

Universalism seems to fit with the culture we're in.  To be honest, no compassionate person delights in seeing other people suffer.  The thought that someone will be separated from God forever is a very disturbing thought.  There is a natural tendency to shy away from that thought.  Universalism has curb appeal.        

Matthew 25:41 & 46 - same word for eternal (aionios in Greek) is used for heaven and for eternal punishment.  Universalists say it means temporary.  But that would mean heaven is temporary.  Aionios clearly is referring to something that continues on.

Hell is not the only word.  Jesus talks about outer darkness, the fire that is not quenched, the worm that does not die.  The separation from God is a terrible condition.

All through the Gospels, we see separation:  sheep/goats, good fish/bad fish, wheat/chaff, wise virgins/foolish virgins.  There is a sense of finality in all these texts.

The whole of the bible contains a theme that is referred to as the two ways.  This includes the passages that speak of consequences for our actions.  i.e. Genesis 2 - Adam and Eve; Isaiah 1:19-20 - "If you consent and obey, you will eat the best of the land, but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword."  Psalm 1, The Two Ways - "As for the wicked, they will not stand on the day of judgement, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.  For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish."

Why did Jesus have to die?  Universalists see the cross as a reflection of love, but do not see the cross as a reflection of God's justice, that Jesus was bearing the terrible penalty that was due to us.  If you take the element of justice out, why did Jesus have to suffer?  Jesus prayed that that cup of suffering pass him by, but he had to take that cup of suffering.  This tells us what is due to our sin.  We cannot trivialize forgiveness.  Jesus paid that price.
