“Are You Willing to Suffer for Me?”

Saints, I’ve been silent for a while, but feel released to share part of what’s taken place since my last post.  God’s showing His people will soon be faced with situations and testing as never before.  This post will be a little longer than normal, but bear with me as I cover several points, which should ultimately converge. 

The first part of September, the Lord had me move from the center of a large city to a remote, rural area.  Just before the move, God said, “When you leave here, shut the door and DO NOT LOOK BACK!”  I’d also been shown where He was sending me was to be a place of prayer and supplication, to speak forth the things of God. 

Although thrilled to be heading out in this new direction, I was somewhat intimidated at the thought of living in such a remote place, so asked, “Lord, who will help me? Am I to be out there all alone?”  He said, You will not be alone, I will be with you.”

The first few weeks were filled with the busyness of moving and getting set up.  I was so happy with the peace and quiet, and kept thinking, “What a place to be totally alone with God to pray!”   

But as things began to settle down, this city girl was hit with the realization; for the first time in my life I was all alone, out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by woods!  Then came the silence; a deafening silence, the likes of which I’ve not experienced. 

I felt alone and cut off from everything I knew.  It became increasingly difficult to focus, to pray, or hear God!  I continued to seek Him by doing what I knew to do – the spiritual disciplines of prayer, study, and fasting; but the silence continued.

Then came the interrogation, with questions such as: “Why was I out here alone?  Had I really heard God correctly?” 

On the morning of September 23, 2020, shortly after a time of prayer and study, the Holy Spirit whispered:

“All, with unveiled face, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory.”

I was startled, because it seemed to come out of the blue, having nothing to do with what I’d been praying and studying, so I asked for further understanding about this word.

The rest of the day I researched everything in scripture about a veil, as well as its various uses.  A veil is used to hide, to disguise, or as in Ex. 26:33, to separate. 

God then began to show the marked contrast between His ways and the ways of darkness.  Ezekiel 13:18-21 shows how charms and veils are used in witchcraft.  Even today, during many satanic initiation ceremonies, they stand 6 feet apart with mouths veiled to show submission to their “new master.”   

But Paul said the veil is taken away in Christ; when we turn to the Lord the veil is removed (2 Cor. 3:12-18).  God requires total transparency, with nothing hidden as we come before Him.

That night my heart was heavy, as I saw a sea of people all over the world wearing masks of every shape and color.  The Lord made clear the spiritual realm was manifesting into the natural, with the “church” blending in perfectly with the masses, her face fully veiled and masked.  It was only fitting that her mouth be covered, as she had refused to speak forth the Truth of God!

At that point I asked, “Lord, what would You have me do?”   Because of the mask requirement in my area to enter a business, I’d need to change where/how I shopped, etc.  In essence – there would be consequences for not adhering to the “rules.”  I prayed fervently for more revelation and interpretation before retiring that evening.   

Upon awakening the following morning, the Holy Spirit said,

“Are you willing to suffer for Me? Are you willing to be inconvenienced?”

Brethren, suffice it to say I began going through much agony and warfare in spirit in the weeks following that question.  Everything intensified.  It’s as if a dark cloud encircled me and I couldn’t do much more than just hold on.  I believe I had to go through, to a degree, some of what I’m being asked to share with you now. 

But the Lord’s faithful, and He prepared me for this fight.   He provided everything needed beforehand.  He told me to “Go!” when it was time to leave my previous residence.  As I shared, He also told me to shut the door when I left and not look back.  He promised I would not be alone, that HE would be with me. 

I was tested on every one of those points.  My physical flesh was screaming to go back to the conveniences of “Egypt” where things were easier and more convenient.  Being alone in extreme quietness – not hearing or even “feeling” the presence of God would have been unbearable IF I hadn’t previously heard His clear instructions.  So, I held on for dear life, refusing to believe what my senses were telling me.  I held onto His Word, that even if I never heard or felt Him again, it didn’t matter, because my God would never leave me nor forsake me!  He lived in me and I in Him!  I chose to believe His word at all cost.

The question, “Are you willing to suffer for Me?” kept being asked throughout all of this.  Once I was able to answer, “Yes,” the Lord moved mightily to show where the enemy was coming through.  That too was something He’d already instructed me to do upon my arrival, but I’d procrastinated. As soon as this was carried out, the dark cloud lifted – immediately!

Saints, everything is converging right now.  All the veiling and distancing the world’s witnessed was the devil’s “initiation ceremony.” It was like phase one of what’s to come.  But we are not to be ignorant of the devil’s devices.  Instead, we are to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.  This is a very important key!  Each must be led by the Holy Spirit during this time.    

We were told just over a year ago to “Veer Off! They Are Headed for Destruction!”  In that dream, the path we’re to veer onto is a tiny exit ramp, and we’ll not be able to see where it leads.  God called it “Uncharted Territory.”  It will be a total walk of faith.  I believe this is right where we are today, approaching the entrance to that ramp.  Those with ears to hear are hearing the call.  The Spirit is bearing witness – the next phase is about to begin! It’s time to earnestly take heed to what God said in April, “Gird Yourself!” 

Just know, when you begin to veer off the wide path, your flesh will scream for you to go back – just as the Israelites continued looking back at how “wonderful” they had it in Egypt.  The devil will hit you with similar tactics as described herein – tailored just for you. 

But God’s saying to us:

“When you leave, shut the door and DO NOT LOOK BACK!” 

“You will not be alone; I will be with you.”

“All, with unveiled face, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory.”

God’s letting us know His people, those with “unveiled” faces are to be transformed into the same image, and we know it’s the image of our risen Savior.  The unveiled ones are those who will NOT submit to the devil; they will NOT bow their knee to anyone except the true King of kings and Lord of lords; His Name is Jesus Christ!  These will be taken through a process of final cleansing and purification in order to be transformed into His very likeness. 

Be encouraged, Saints!  God’s positioning each of us within the Body as it pleases Him, to become His Fullness, preparing us to be used in the coming harvest.  Abide in Him; remain covered with His armor; pick up the sword of the Spirit, which is the very Word of God!  Fear not, for God will prepare you for this fight! 

Please pray for further revelation and interpretation.  I hope those going through similar situations right now will be encouraged as you focus on the promises and goodness of our God!

Thankyou Diana for sharing, I went to the prayer march in DC and brought my mask but for some reason I didn’t wear any, most people didn’t. The Hebrew meaning of the Jewish year had to do with our mouths too, sure there was no coincidence there either. People say that we have no regard or care about the possibility of passing along covid and that that’s selfish on our part. I have worn it to stores out of respect but this makes so much sense; although I would miss it hiding my menopause hotflash jolly red face, in which… Read more »

Thank you, Diana, for sharing your experiences because it is encouraging to hear your testimony about how faithful and trustworthy Almighty God is.   A few weeks ago in that time of ‘not quite awake yet’ dreamy state, this was where my thoughts were:  Like is popular now on television, I observed a contest going on to see who was the best.  All the potters were making their best piece.  At the beginning they all did pretty well, however, with each passing level the quality of the clay that each potter was given decreased.  In the end only one was able to make a masterpiece out… Read more »

So very glad to hear you have moved to the country! I’ve lived alone on a small farm for 15 years and I love it, but I was wired up to be alone I think. Ha. About the mask thing, at the beginning I bought some for myself and my elderly mother cause I thought they would protect us. Then when my state “mandated” masks I found it rankled me severely and I wouldn’t wear one. I thought it was just my rebellious streak . (I have to fight it daily) so I got one of those clear face shields.… Read more »

It is so amazing how the Lord is taking care of His children. He showed me something that was hindering me and I had to make a change. I procrastinated so the Lord put it in a way I could understand it. And what you wrote puts all this we are going through in public into perspective. God bless you in your new home in the woods.

These past 10 days I have been through a wringer having to deal with my mom’s open heart surgery & the need to place my dad in a nursing home with his various dementia & mobility problems. But I know without a doubt God has been with me & my family in this sudden drastic change! Today is the first day I’ve been able to take a breath, & now reading your post, I can see how He has been purging that last bit of dross from me in the past week! Thank You Jesus! Both of my parents are… Read more »

OH MY! You don’t have any idea how much I needed this! I have not been able to join the mask-her-aid since it started. I have been heavily beat up over it but I prevailed unveiled…every single time except one and that was MY choice! The one time I had to veil up is when I lost my glasses and had to go to a very paranoid optometrist who sanitized everything around her every ten seconds. I am not even exaggerating! I felt sorry for her as the amount of fear and oppression she was under made obvious by her… Read more »

Read about the veil in Hebrews just a few days ago and now this post. In Heb 10:20 it was Jesus who removed the veil (the curtain) seperating the holy from the most holy by his flesh dying on the cross. In the Old testament the Hebrew word for veil is maccekah – a covering and the definition is a libation, molten metal or image. That is very interesting because a molten image or idol is very closely related to or is in fact a true reflection of the heart. For a long time I couldnt understand how God could… Read more »

Cobus,
Yes, if we insist on having OUR way, God will indeed give us over to the desires of OUR heart. That horrifies me to think of it.

I spend a lot of time asking the Lord to give me HIS heart now days, as I do not trust my own. Yes, the veils is taken away in Christ Jesus. They that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth!
God bless you for summing up so beautifully!

I was reading Psalm 81
11 But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.

So I did a quick cross-reference and these verses all say a similar thing about God allowing us to follow what we choose:
Jeremiah 11:8
Jeremiah 16:12
Proverbs 1:29-31 
Proverbs 29:1
Zechariah 7:11-14 
Ezekiel 3:7-9

Matthew 13:15
Acts 28:25-27
Romans 1:24
Romans 2:5
Ephesians 4:18
Hebrews 4:7
Hebrews 3:7-9

Lately, I’ve been inclined to check your FB wall as I have not seen any posts. Quite frankly, I’ve missed your writings and would be disappointed when I saw nothing but birthday wishes…oh…Happy Birthday belated. During this time I’ve done my own, sometimes raw, certainly from the “street” (my territory, my experience) thoughts…usually late at night when the poison of the day hasn’t arrived One time, after posting about knowing how to cause “havoc” not against believers but in defense of them, I was told by a fellow believer, I was not very “Christianlike”, I was living in the material… Read more »

The first thing I thought of when you mentioned the veil and the glory, was the story of Moses. Exodus 34: 33 When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face. 34 But whenever he entered the Lord’s presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, 35 they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the Lord. We want to be the unveiled people! Those who “shine like the stars”… Read more »
