Although I’ve been a Christian since the age of 22, it wasn’t until 2008, while going through an especially trying time, that I asked God what He intended for my life. I told Him I wanted my life to give Him Glory, but didn’t see how it was making any difference at all for His kingdom. I asked Him to not hold anything back, I wanted it all – EVERYTHING – He intended for me, that I would do whatever He told me to do.
Two weeks later, during my quiet time with the Lord, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Clean your house and write.” In 2011, I started the blog http://themightyhandofgod.com/ as a place to write whatever the Lord inspires. I began having dreams and visions in the mid 90’s, mostly about things the Lord wanted to relay to me regarding personal issues. But the last few years, they have become almost exclusively about the times in which we live.
The night of February 28th, 2018, I had the following vision/word while speaking with William Thompson. William had just said he could feel the anger of God over the distraction of His people, and that many had set up Asherah poles, which were keeping them from coming to the temple of God.
Just as he was explaining what the Lord was showing, that Jesus was roaring as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah with fire issuing from His mouth, I saw the following vision:
The face of a huge lion appeared in front of me. He opened his mouth and began ROARING LOUDLY. He then turned and began to run. With each angry roar, fire shot forth from his mouth like a river.
As the lion ran, I was right with him, although at first slightly behind. After a few moments, I realized I was no longer behind Him, but we were running as one. We began running throughout all the earth. With each roar, fire went forth to consume and purify all things. As we ran, I kept hearing in my spirit, Continue Reading >>>
I was praying in the early morning hours of February 17th, 2018, when all of a sudden, I heard the Holy Spirit boldly proclaim,
“War in the Heavens!”
“War, War, War!”
“There is War in the Heavens!”
Startled, I had no idea what the Lord wanted me to do with this information, or how He wanted me to respond. As I grabbed a pen to write down what I’d heard, the Lord said, “Get up and pray!”
I immediately jumped to my feet and began praying in the Spirit. This went on for over thirty minutes before I was released. Although I don’t know specifically what that particular battle was over, I know it had to do with not conceding territory and standing our ground against the enemy. Continue Reading >>>
The last two weeks of January, 2018, I’d been studying almost exclusively in the book of Ephesians. Several times during this period, in the wee hours of the morning, I’d awakened to hear the Lord say,
“Rise up and sit with Me, My Beloved!”
Every time I heard this, my heart filled with excitement and anticipation at the thought of taking my seat in Christ at the right hand of the Father! As Ephesians chapters 1 & 2 (along with other verses) make clear, Jesus has been given all power and authority and now sits at the right hand of the Father. He is far above every principality, power, might, and dominion, and every name that is named.
And the Father has made us alive together with Christ, and raised us up to sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Eph. 2:4-6). Jesus said He has given His power and authority to the Church. But the Church has yet to take that seat in the heavenly realm, and has failed to exercise the very power and authority given Her.
On January 31st, after again hearing the Lord tell me to rise and sit with Him, I began praying and enquiring about the various trials and spiritual battles of late that I and other brothers and sisters are experiencing. The intensity has been at a level I’ve never experienced, and I knew I wasn’t walking fully in the power and authority given by Jesus. As I cried before Him, suddenly the Lord said loudly,
In the post entitled, ‘Will You Make the Cut?,’ I shared the Lord had called me aside to spend time alone with Him, and how during this two week period, I found myself in a battle like nothing I’d ever experienced. I recommend reading the original post before proceeding.
I ended up succumbing to my flesh and returning home before being released of God to do so. The next morning I awakened to hear the Lord say:
“Will You Make the Cut?”
In December, 2017, I was shown the Lord is raising a wall of partition (see The Dividing Line) in His Temple – the Body of Christ. This dividing line will separate and make manifest the remnant of God, and the very Bride of Christ will be brought forth!
As soon as the Lord asked me this question, He immediately began to show the various ploys and tactics the enemy will use against the Body of Christ as the Dividing Line is drawn and the Bride separated for her final cleansing and purification. God also revealed the reason for Satan’s fear of this division or “Cut” as the Lord called it. Continue Reading >>>
I was horrified at the thought of being outside the will of God! The disconnection I felt in communion with the Holy Spirit was paralyzing, as fear and confusion came over me.
The Lord had called me aside to spend time alone with Him. I’d driven several hours to get to the location, had pretty much cut myself off from the outside world, and had been there almost two weeks when the desire to leave overcame me.
Several things were pulling upon me, but the most profound was an overwhelming sense of isolation and loneliness. In the course of the two week period, my flesh became increasingly uncomfortable, as the battle raged within.
This battle was like nothing I’ve ever experienced! The Lord had called me to separate myself unto Him, to sit in His presence and commune with Him, but my flesh was screaming otherwise. It was demanding attention, wanting to be entertained, coddled, anything but sit in the presence of God!
On January 5th, the morning after my return, I awakened to hear the following words: Continue Reading >>>
In the early morning hours of December 12, 2017, I awakened hearing the words, “The Division.” After hearing it several times and feeling a deep heaviness in my spirit, I grabbed a pad and wrote the words at the top of the page.
As I sat there looking at the words, I saw a vision:
Faces of various people began flashing across the page. They all had big smiles, appearing very happy and content. But as I saw the happy faces, my heart ached, and I felt much sorrow. The sorrow was so intense that tears began to flow, and I asked, “What is it, Lord? What is this?”
The following is a link to my Tribulation-Now Radio interview from 12/10/2017. God said, “You will stretch forth your hands and you will be used as My Instruments of Righteousness. The interview begins at the 1:33 hour marker.
The morning of November 20th, 2017, while discussing a revelation given to William Thompson regarding how faithful God is to finish the work He has begun, the Lord dropped the following into my spirit:
“My Bride is the second Eve!”
We had talked about how Jesus came as the second Adam to pay the penalty incurred by Adam and Eve’s decision to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God had shown William (see below Note) the Bride was being prepared to walk in complete faith and surrender to the will of the Father, so that everything done in the Garden of Eden will be overcome.
Just as Jesus is referred to as the second, or last, Adam, so His Bride is the second Eve. Because of the Father’s relentless love for us, He sent His Son to redeem mankind and take back the authority Adam had given to Satan. Our Lord Jesus fulfilled all obedience when He submitted His will to the Father at the Garden of Gethsemane.
Now the Bride will become like Him to be united with Him. The spiritual battle that took place in the Garden of Eden between the woman and the serpent is about to be re-enacted! Continue Reading >>>
I’d like to share an experience from the morning of November 10th.
That morning began with me throwing a “fit” before the Lord. I was in agony over a situation that had arisen and was literally wailing to God, desperately wanting Him to do something about it, or remove me from it. It was then that my phone rang. A sister in Christ had told me she’d call at that particular time to discuss a horrific situation which had happened prior to her becoming a follower of Jesus Christ.
I’m not at liberty to disclose too many details, but as she spoke, it became obvious one of the main things she fought to hold on to during this ordeal was her sanity, faith that there was a God, and that He would somehow see her through. This was a hostage situation and the perpetrators were satanic. Every evil mind control tactic, as well as physical attacks, you can imagine was used against her to get her to succumb, so she’d give her dominion and will over to them.
She lost control of every aspect of her life, as even her thoughts were being manipulated. I’ll stop here, because her story will be made public in a couple weeks, and I’ll provide a link to the interview on the website when available. But as she and I talked, the Lord began to speak to both of us, giving amazing revelations. The following is a part of what I was personally shown which relates specifically to what William has shared:
At one point she said, “Diana, the Church has no idea what they’ll be facing, and I fear many will give up their faith.” Immediately, I heard in my spirit,
“Each of Mine will go through the Garden.”
As I heard those words, I saw Jesus bowed before His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane, asking if there was any way the cup could be removed from Him; was there any way the plan could be changed? But in the same breathe, without hesitation, He surrendered His will, His comfort, and all His earthly desires to the will of His Father. As His flesh screamed out to live, He handed it over to be crucified.
I was horrified as I thought of my pathetic attempts to get God to cater to my wants and desires just that very morning! My situation was not a matter of life and death, but the ease and comfort of my flesh! The Lord showed me how my actions were a representation of the Church. The message of being crucified with Christ is offensive to most of the “church, and you won’t hear it talked about on Sunday mornings.
My friend is correct. What she experienced will be similar to what some of us will go through. The Church as a whole cannot even imagine what lies ahead. Because of the refusal to submit our will to the Father, allowing the flesh to be crucified on a daily basis, many will never allow themselves to be led to the Garden, and end up denying their faith.
The Word of God plainly says if we’re to share His glory, we must also share in His suffering… We must die daily, allowing the flesh to be crucified with its passions and desires. The Lord is saying,
“Each of Mine will go through the Garden.”
The Bride of Christ must become like Him to be united with Him! For her to be able to walk in the Fullness of His Glory, She too must allow herself to be led to the Garden. No flesh can look upon His Glory – much less contain it, so there must be complete and total destruction of it.
I believe I was shown a time is coming when each of us will be called upon to completely surrender our will, with all fleshly need and desire, to the Father. It will be the final, complete “crucifixion” of our flesh. It may look different for each one of us, but each must say,
“Nevertheless, not my will but Yours be done!”
Romans 6:5-9, “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.”
Isaiah 55:9, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Galatians 5:24, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
Matthew 26:36-39, “… My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”
Romans 8:17, “…if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering.”
