"Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown." (Revelation 3:10-11 AMPC)
You Are Coming Out in the Power of the Spirit!
I saw many of you who are going through the trial of your life in this season—there have been many things that have even piled upon you, but the Lord says:
"In this fire is where I am going to light the fire in you! Yes, this place of testing will only bring you out in the power of My Spirit as My Son came out of the wilderness; and yes, even as Joseph came out of the prison that his brothers (being jealous of his dream) threw him into! So shall you come forth as a soul on fire from within this fire!"
I Will Reward You!
"In this fire I have broken off many things from your life! Many bad and ungodly soul ties have been broken off in this season and many alignments that were only for a season. I saw your obedience through this testing, and how you even walked away from those who you thought were your friends but were not, and how your heart broke from the tearing!
"Know this: I will reward you in this next season with new alignments and new assignments! I will also bring those who will stand by you as you go forward! Cling fast to those that have remained faithful to help you and get through this leg of your journey!"
You Have Gained in This Pain, Do Not Quit Now!
"In this fire you have gained discernment and power over all of the power of the enemy! In this fire you have gained authority in the spirit realm, and this last onslaught that the enemy has sent against you is only to get you to give up in the midst of the test that you are about to pass! DO NOT GIVE UP AND DO NOT GIVE IN TO HIS ATTEMPTS TO BRING YOU TO A HALT! He cannot win unless you stop!"
"I have spoken through My servant tonight to let you know that I have been silent in this test—as the teacher is silent when you take an exam—because the refiner has been at work during this time. But know this! I will be silent no more because I am about to light this never-ending, enduring fire in you for the day of testing that is coming upon the world; and you shall be ON FIRE FOR THEM and you shall be PREPARED because of this last season of testing."
You Will Be Your Brother's Keeper
"My sons and daughters, you are entering a time of coming-out-of-the-wilderness and into a time of great power and harvest! Those who have been faithful to stand—even when they have felt like giving up and giving in—will now arise to be a shelter for those who will turn to the Lord in this day and hour!
"I am preparing a Kingdom reality through you to bring to the world when they have no hope! I allowed you to go through the test so that you would be ready to give hope to the hopeless; even as Joseph was prepared and given authority after his trial to feed his brothers, SO SHALL YOU BE PREPARED TO BE YOUR BROTHER'S KEEPER!
"You will be given orders from headquarters as to where you will need to be, and you will be given many witty inventions to build My Kingdom! It will be a time of innovation, revelation and renewal!
For Such a Time as This...
"I came to you tonight to tell you to hang onto that which is good and let go of that which is only holding you back! I came to bring you the good news, that all of this was for a purpose for such a time as this! All of the pain will be gain and all of the mess will come to an end, for I am turning this trial into a testimony to set men free! I have been freeing you from all fear.
"Now face the wind and let it blow out all of the rest of the mess, for it is time to RISE TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN YOU HAVE BEEN CLIMBING and GET THE REVELATION to bring down to those below who must climb their own mountain!
"Yes, arise and shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord will now arise upon you! Shout, "Victory!" For victory is what you shall have!"
"The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; He will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire. Then the Lord will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding-place from the storm and rain." (Isaiah 4:4-6 NIV) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
