The word I’m about to share is like a double-edged-sword. While it’s a warning of what’s to come; it’s also a word from God to encourage and cling to as events unfold.
Not long after awakening on the morning of December 26th, 2019, I began to feel a deep sorrow in my spirit that I didn’t understand. I was sensing something “huge” on the horizon, something imminent, and knew I needed to seek the Lord about it.
After spending time in prayer, the Holy Spirit showed the judgment of God is at the door! But the judgment God was showing me is not what’s coming upon the sinful nations of this world. Although that will indeed come soon, judgment is first coming upon the very house of God!
The fear of the Lord seized me as He made plain this judgment begins with God’s “inner circle,” those closest to Him. It begins with YOU and ME! (I only include myself as an example, as I do not count myself one who’s already apprehended). It’s not just the ones many of the “remnant” are pointing fingers at that will be included in this judgment – but those who wear the “priestly” garments.
The Holy Spirit reminded me of two specific words (links below) where I was shown a “dividing line” the Lord will draw to separate the clean from the unclean in the Church. I was led to go back and study the Tabernacle again and the layout of the Temple in Israel.
As I studied, God drew specific attention to the role of the priests, and how only one tribe out of the twelve was allowed to approach and minister to God. And out of the tribe of Levi, only the family line of Zadok was allowed to serve as High Priest to enter the Holy of Holies – the inner chamber.
I sat there wondering why I was being shown these things, and how it related to judgment beginning with the house of God. Then the Lord began to bring all the pieces together.
Everything was pointing to the holiness of God and how not just anyone can come near Him. With the Israelites, only the Levites were chosen, and out of them just a small fraction allowed in the inner chamber. It shows how HOLY our God is. Although many are called – few are chosen.
The fear of the Lord seized me again, and I dropped to my knees crying out, “Lord, no one can stand before you! Without Jesus we are all dead men! Please forgive and cover us with His Precious Blood! He then said:
“I am separating you unto Myself.”
“You will not partake of the land or the provisions of this world.”
“I am your portion.”
“Be holy as I am holy.”
I was then shown the following:
Jesus is our High Priest, and we are made kings and priests under Him (Rev 1:6). Just as the Levitical priests serving in the physical temple had to meet certain cleansing and purification requirements, so do the priests serving under Jesus in the spiritual temple.
What God showed next opened my understanding to the words He’d just spoken:
“The priests, the Levites – all the tribe of Levi – shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel…they shall have no inheritance among their brethren, the LORD is their inheritance…” Deut. 18:1-2
“It shall be, in regard to their inheritance, that I am their inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession…every dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs.” Ezek. 44:28-29
“Then the LORD said to Aaron, ‘You shall have no inheritance in their land, nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel.” Num. 18:20
This is God speaking directly to the priests! The priests were to have no inheritance among the people; not in land, possessions, even down to the food they ate. But notice, God said He was their portion and possession and everything dedicated to God would be theirs! Their portion was to be the best – the first fruits of the land!
What God’s showing is that most of His “priests” today have partaken of the provisions of this world! We’ve taken ease and comfort, land, houses, jobs, spouses, treasures, idols of every kind – without even consulting God – making the god of this world our portion!
The holy things of God have been mixed with the profane and cannot stand before Him! We must remember how the two sons of Aaron were dealt with when they offered “strange fire” before the Lord (Lev. 10:1-2). The meaning of “strange” in Hebrew is “unauthorized, foreign, or profane.” What they did was so offensive to God they were killed on the spot!
The following is an excerpt from ‘The Division’ to give a glimpse of what’s coming:
“Everything not of Me will fall. Their idols will be swept away!”
As I watched, a line was drawn down the middle of the Church separating it into two groups.
I then saw mass chaos as the Church began to split apart. Many pastors fell as sin and transgression was revealed. Much weeping came as they lost church buildings and everything they’d worked so hard to build. The flock seemed in confusion and began to turn one upon another…”
None of us are exempt from what’s coming. Many thought to be mighty men and women of God are not going to make it! Judgment will hit every house beginning with those who claim to be His; those who seem to be the “purest” among us, will be judged first and most harshly.
As kings and priests unto our God, we need to ask what our stance should be at this time. Throughout scripture we have examples of the response God desires from His people. Joel 2:12-17 is such an example.
It’s time to get on our knees! It’s time for prayer and fasting, for repentance and interceding before our God; It’s time to rend our hearts – to lay them bare before Him. Ask God to examine and search us to see if there be any wicked thing remaining in our lives.
I know many of us have been going through the fires of purification for some time, and have repeatedly asked to be shown and stripped bare of anything not of Him. God is answering our prayers and is telling us:
“I am separating you unto Myself. You will not partake of the land or the provisions of this world. I am your portion. Be holy as I am holy.”
A fire is coming to reveal every man’s work, what sort it is! The Lord has shown that which is coming to be a “final fire,” to consume and burn up everything not of Him; to separate and make manifest the remnant of God, and out of it – the very Bride of Christ will be brought forth!
Saints, I pray the Holy Spirit pierce our hearts with this message; that no matter what comes, we remember we’re being separated unto Him. May we fear not, knowing He is our portion; and what He has in store for us is His very best!
There was intense warfare like I’ve never experienced just to publish this word. This warfare not only came from without – but from within. My flesh fought hard against the stark truth of what God is saying. Please pray for further understanding of how this may apply to you.
