“The Devil Is A Liar!”

During the evening and early morning hours of July 12th, I kept hearing the Lord say:

“The devil is a Liar!”

Before proceeding I need to share a little about what was going on just prior to hearing these words, as I believe many of you may be going through similar situations.

At the time the Lord spoke this to me, I had been in great agony of spirit for almost two weeks.  God had recently called me to go in a direction that took a drastic turn from the path I knew He had placed me on.  My whole being cried out, “NO! Oh, God, please, NO!”  But even as I cried out for it not to be so, I knew it was His will…

Reluctantly, I agreed to go in this new direction, but felt as if my heart had died.  It seemed I was walking away from all the hopes, dreams, and desires that God Himself had placed within my heart.  By this time, I’d begun to wonder if they would ever come to pass.  Then came the questions, “Had I heard God correctly?”, or, “Had I misinterpreted what He told me?”

As days went by, it only got worse.  Obstacles began to present themselves as immovable mountains.  I quickly became overwhelmed, physically and emotionally exhausted.  My cries to God for a word as to why all this was happening were met with silence.  I wasn’t hearing anything from Him.

Not hearing from the Lord, I felt I was losing my bearings.  Confusion and despair began to envelop me, and I felt darkness begin to settle in around me.  Knowing this was an attack from the enemy, I began to cry out all the more to God for help!

The morning I heard the Lord say, “The Devil is a Liar!”, hope began to rise within – even though I was yet to understand what God was specifically referring to.

About a week later the Lord visited me during the night and repeatedly said,

“Come Up Out of Here!”  

I got up the next morning feeling very encouraged.  The Lord had come down to where I was – at the bottom of a pit, and ordered me to rise up out of it!  He rescued me, setting my feet back on solid ground. The darkness receded as He began to shine light upon the situation.

God had begun telling me, “Hold On!” over two months ago.  Although I knew it to be a warning, until recently I’d been given no further details.  Now I hear these words almost daily, and understand it to be a message for the remnant of God; for it will be those who “Hold On” who become the very Bride of Christ!

Message to the Remnant:

Once you’ve submitted your will to the Father, your life will never be the same!  If you’ve given God permission to finish His work in you, permission to remove everything in your life that is not of Him, then buckle up; because this is what is happening – He is answering your prayers!

This is a very hard message, but when Jesus said, “… whoever desires to save his life will lose it..,” He was telling us the truth, meaning exactly what He said.  We must be crucified in Christ, allowing Jesus to live in us.

To live a crucified life is to give up our right to call the shots, to decide which “path” we walk.  The first thing He told me after rescuing me from the pit was, I didn’t have to understand what was going on around me (Isa. 55:8-9).  Dying to self means I am no longer my concern – but His.

As God completes His work in us, the purification process will at times be excruciatingly painful to our flesh.  Most of the time, we will not understand what is happening – or why.  Dying is NOT EASY (see ‘Are You Ready to Die?’).

It’s during these times the enemy will make his move. To make you doubt the Word, all the promises of God – even the very desires the Lord has placed within your heart, the devil will tell you that you must have misunderstood what God said, or maybe you really didn’t hear Him in the first place.  Just as He questioned Adam and Eve, and Jesus Himself, so will he question you!

This tactic is used to distract, disable, and “ground” the most seasoned of Saints.  Once we begin to use human reasoning in an attempt to “figure things out,” we are operating in the flesh.  Our eyes will be diverted away from God, back onto ourselves and this world!

The Lord has shown me a darkness is coming, such as no one can presently comprehend.  The objective of the enemy will be to disorient and confuse the Saints during this time – to take every ounce of hope and expectation away…

Instead of succumbing to human reasoning and the interrogations of the enemy, we must be still while trusting and waiting on the Holy Spirit for direction.  This will require that the Remnant HOLD ON to the things of God, everything the Holy Spirit has taught us!

Brethren, God wants us to be encouraged.  He wants us to understand that when darkness closes in, when we cannot make sense of anything around us, or see a way out, His light will arise and pierce through that darkness for His people!

“Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness…” (Ps 112:4)

He is Faithful, and will come for us – at the bottom of a dark pit if necessary.  As His light pierces the darkness, He will pull us out and set our feet back on solid ground!

We must hold on – for the devil is a liar! It’s the desires of the wicked that shall perish – NOT the desires of the righteous! (Ps 112:10)

Our eyes have not seen, and it has not even entered our heart, the things God has prepared for us (1 Cor. 2:9).  God’s plan for us is BETTER than we have even imagined!

Personal Note:

For lack of space, this article will be continued.  The Lord has made clear His people are not ready for what is coming.

Recently, while speaking with a prophet of the Lord, he said, ‘Diana, God told me while I was praying for you yesterday, “I had to wound her deeply to prepare her for what I have called her to do.”

As soon as he told me what God had said to him, the Holy Spirit confirmed saying,

“You Must Be Crushed!”

I want to let you know, although this will be a very hard message to share, the Lord showed me what transpires when this is accomplished.  What I saw and heard made me scream out in excitement, as tears of joy flowed like a river!

As always, please take this before the Lord for further interpretation and how this may apply to you personally.

Thank you for your message. It spoke to me today as i am in the midst of some heart wrenching decisions. I am also struggling with whether what I am hearing and am feeling compelled to take action in, is from God. My Godly friends all support my actions but there have been some dark times as I wrestle with this decision. Please pray that I follow God’s perfect plan.

Diana, Hi and thanks for this posting! There are some in the church who would like to take Jesus off the cross because it doesn’t make them comfortable. They don’t understand that the resurrection power of Jesus came after His death on the cross and that we must Follow Him. Many in church now say He completed the works of the cross for our salvation so let’s take Him off of there. They don’t understand the beauty of coredemptrix and joining your sufferings with those of Christ on the cross for the salvation of souls. As we lay down our… Read more »

Diana, God led me to read, Lamentations chapter 3. Jeremiah had to witness the wrath of God, falling up on His rebellious people. Something that we might have to start to see, in our future, also. I believe that God is trying to train us through suffering experiences now, sort of like a Jeremiah, or a Job type experience, to try to better equip us, to be able to handle, greater sufferings, coming for us to experience, in our future. Jeremiah, and Job, lost their ability to control their comfortable lives. I believe that God is trying to teach His… Read more »

Hi Diana, God has taught me many things through your prophetic words. There is a lot of suffering that we must go through in this life for our good. God has been allowing Satan, to sift me like wheat, lately, for my good. The Lord asked me to start fasting one day a week, a few years ago. What the Lord asks me to do, He gives me the ability to do. It may not be easy sometimes, but when I rely on Him to help me to do it, I find His help to do it. God has directed… Read more »

I am on the opposite side of the spectrum. I have been experiencing an increase in Victory over the enemy and more peace and joy than I have ever had. I felt a definite shift at the first of the year that I can’t explain. Sure I still get attacked but they are more like flicking a pesky fly as I immediately react without even thinking. I also recover much quicker after an attack than I use to. But since so many of my brothers and sister’s warfare has increased I started to feel uneasy about that too. Am I… Read more »

Diana and brothers and sisters in Christ, The key message here and much of what Diana has shared over the past year or so is that the flesh has to GO! We can’t get so caught up in what the devil is doing. Satan is a tool the LORD uses to refine us. WE have AUTHORITY over the devil and his works because JESUS CHRIST is in us! The point of the training is to submit the flesh, focus on and trust in our Father for everything and all of the wonderful and amazing promises in the Bible are ours!… Read more »

Hi Sue, I read your post #13 earlier today and felt I had to cone back to share something that I hope will be helpful to you. Like you and probably most Christians I was taught and believed that we are sinners saved by grace. But what does the scriptures say? -“ I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ….” Is there sin in Chrust? Paul says that sin is in our fkesh, but that is not who we ARE! The word of God declares that we are the righteousness of God. This contradicts the… Read more »

Thank you Diana for your transparency and for this word of life for the body of Christ. Colossians 1:22 came to my mind after reading it: “Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body sake, which is the church.”

September 1, 2018 9:15 am

Thank you also Diana for all that your conveying to us from the Lord. You and those in this post are about the only one encouraging me..I feel so alone and shut out, no one wants to hear anything because it’s too negative and from loved ones shutting you out it hurts. I left my church because of the face’s people put on but outside of church no one has even noticed your missing..only hearing from them in church..lol! not wanting to hear The warnings, they say they are from enemy..ugh! The point I’m getting at is same things happening… Read more »

I woke up so early this morning and read this on z3 and tears started pouring from these eyes…like it was meant to be read at that very time and place in my own life. This battle, this absolute war going on with the remnant is real and alive in a moment by moment basis. I was needing such confirmation and closure as my marriage became such a battle ground. What it took for me to walk away…words cannot begin to describe the utter agony in spirit I have been facing. This war is real and I needed crutches. There… Read more »

Diana, What has been calling out to me the last few days is “being an instrument of righteousness.” I just read that blog post again because what has been made clear to me is God did that with Jesus and then when Jesus rose from the dead He sent the Holy Spirit. I believe He is asking or showing us our need to allow His righteousness to move through us as Jesus did. I further was guided to read “we must take dominion.” That confirmed to me what we are being told. as you warned in that post…“You must take… Read more »

Ive been desperate and afraid I cant take the crushing! Literally afraid I cant stay alive with the personal wounds Ive received this last year, rejection, banishment, mocking. I pray and say I am too weak, I cant take it. I keep thinking I need to get away from the situation. I really dont know the Lords will for me tomorrow or next month. But if I can survive this I guess the Lord is doing something new and wonderful to me.

Dear woman, I totally understand. I too have had my severe wounding & same questions. The same feeling of being crushed. Thank God that you are honest enough & humble enough & courageous enough to share your experiences with the Lord in this way. It really speaks to my heart & if it wasn’t for people like yourself who are willing to express these things I think many true Christians would be feeling lost in their walk right now too. I know that I would but this is just a light pointing the way & confirmation of what I’ve been… Read more »
