During 2020, certainly one of the most unique years of life, I heard the Lord's voice telling me many things about this upcoming year. He said, "You have been in the 'Prepare yourself, for tomorrow I will do amazing things among you' phase."
"Joshua told the people, 'Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you." (Joshua 3:5)
This is to the faithful – to those who are fighting to find faith – to those who carry the promises of God but are tempted to doubt, thinking, "If I fail to believe what I believe the Lord spoke to me, then every word I've had or received is suspect and every promise is compromised." God's people had to believe to enter the Promised Land...it was a requirement met only by two who believed, Joshua and Caleb, and if the people of God didn't believe, or wouldn't, they would be removed until a generation did believe. This is one of those occasions in time. Believe.
The first part of this last year, the tsunami of 2020, will still be reeling in the oceans of life. Through March 2021 you will see the crumbling of false narratives without any promises being broken. Truth is still emerging, and fraudulent, fake, distorted, spurious, deceptive agendas will continue to be exposed and emerge publicly with great exhibition.
With the emergence of truth, the Church will also emerge out of her hiding. Like the prophets who hid during the days of Elijah, they will appear in the days of Elisha. The initial take down of this Jezebelic, demonic, unbelieving principality will be encouraged by the prayers of the saints, and God will open the door for the angel Michael to assist His Son's Bride (see Daniel 10:12-14). What Elijah couldn't bring in, the promise of turning "the hearts of the fathers to the children," Elisha will complete.
"He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction." (Malachi 4:6)
I believe the commission to the Church in this hour is "DO NOT REVERT." Do not become consumed with your agendas, but rather God's agenda. God's agenda is relationships formed to unity, love and faith and not division based on technological, lucrative and impressive results that can gather crowds, but not disciples. We must not lose touch with what God has done in bringing His Church into a redefined place that doesn't require the foolish mentality of boxes that need resources, but remain His Church that is the answer and resource for His purposes in this hour. His Church is not about meetings, conferences, denominations and divisions, but rather gathering and going into the harvest.
The remnant that has retained faith and hope as a lifestyle are about to rise in authority to be heard. They will be quoted and seen as leaders in the nations and the world, though they will live in humility and hiddenness. Their words will be sought out by kings, presidents, chiefs and prime ministers because the authority they will carry will open the ancient ways and doors that have been shut tight by unrighteousness and wickedness.

I heard, "Exposure, Exposure!" regarding the darkest of places where demonic activity has been taking place. The hiding places of the wicked are about to be brought under the spotlights, and like rats running away, they will find that there are no dark places to hide.
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn." (Isaiah 60:1-3)
The First Responders of Hope
The Church is rising. I heard, "Cherry on Top!" Nights of hope are about to become days of glory! The Church is about to experience the glory in ways we have never seen, but will begin to see. The glory will be in sharp view, just in time for the difficulties that many will face. The peace that is coming is from the Lord of the armies. It will be the armies that bring peace!
"'The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the Lord Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the Lord Almighty." (Haggai 2:9)
His Church must be ready to MOVE fast! Just as Jesus said, we can expect there will be wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, etc. (see Matthew 24:6-7, Mark 13:7-8, Luke 21:10-11). These things will increase, but the end is not yet. Those who walk closely with Jesus will continue to listen daily, moment by moment, to His Word and respond to His presence.
They will become known as "The First Responders Of Hope," going into several places in this nation and many other nations that are in deep peril. Yet, they will restore hope and bring about healing and resurrections both in the spirit and the natural. They will be recognized by Jesus' name, not by a denomination, a movement, an alliance or a brand. Any associations will be seen as idols and be discarded.
"I am the LORD; that is My name! I will not yield My glory to another or My praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you." (Isaiah 42:8-9)
Ropes From Heaven
I saw ropes from Heaven – many of them – and then I heard the faint, distant bells ringing in Heaven. The words "It's time! It's time!" rang out and great rejoicing was occurring in Heaven. There was a gathering of the angels and saints, with laughter, pleasure and delight. The Father was speaking and declaring the readiness of the time. At once I saw clocks all over the earth. Alarms had been set and we were one minute away from all the alarms going off. Yet, the bells were pealing in Heaven – huge bells...bells that would be heard supernaturally, even on Earth. "It's Time!"
The Separation of Wheat and Tares
Holiness, purity and His presence are determining the days ahead, as well as who will be walking into destiny in the days ahead. Purity is a dividing line. Purity divides what God wants from what men want. Those who are lovers of pleasure are those who believe their "pleasure" is just fine and good; they think, "God accepts me having whatever pleasure I want." This belief operates by "expedience" rather than righteousness. It is, in fact, the begging of separation that demonstrates the "son of perdition" and eliminates the possibility of walking as the "Sons of God"!
"I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the One you accepted, you put up with it easily enough." (2 Corinthians 11:2-4) (Photo via Pixabay)
"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
"They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. (2 Timothy 3:1-9)
I heard, "Son of perdition and the Sons of God!" The son of perdition is, first of all, mentioned about Judas who betrayed Jesus, lost his future, experienced extreme guilt and died by suicide.
"While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled." (John 17:12)
The second use of the phrase "son of perdition" was spoken by Paul, who was trying to correct the error that was being shared that Jesus had already returned (an error that continues in some circles today). Jesus has not returned yet, but will; physically.
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition." (2 Thessalonians 2:3)
The separation of the wheat and tares is happening (Matthew 13:24-30). The angels will separate them, beginning now. Watch and see. The tares are about to become visible in the field of harvest. They will manifest in ways of rebellion, betrayal, greed and expedience, holding on to "entitlement," which they might call grace but the Word calls living in sin. You don't want to be defending a tare when the angels weed them out because it could make you complicit to their sin.
The Sons of God are those whom all of creation is waiting for. They are the ones who carry the authority and humility and joy of Jesus.
"For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed." (Romans 8:19)
All the history and difficulty you have been walking through is to produce in you the character to carry Him to the nations and the neighbors. It's not a waste. It's perfect. Embrace it and you will look more like Jesus.
