Persecutions II

Persecutions spirit strikes everywhere

“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world" (John 16:33 HCSB). Also “My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways” (James 1:2 GWT).

Children Going To Hell

Warning from the Lord: Yesterday morning (19/04/2020) the Lord revealed to Claudia that many parents are not leading their young children from age eight (8) and upwards to Him.  Also, the Lord commanded that Christian parents be teaching their children how to pray and to encourage them to read the Bible and if they are unable to the parent must read and teach the children the word of God (Ephesians 6:4). In a vision she was shown that how a 10 year old girl we know died and went to Hell. The Lord told her that this precious girl went to Hell because she was not born again and her name was not written in the book of life.

Smoking Christians

Again on 17/04/2020, the Lord showed Claudia in a vision that smoking was harmful to people while showing her in a vision someone who smoked constantly and He also warned that those who smoke will go to Hell.

These warns are very important brethren, the Lord wants to save children and with times being as uncertain as these we don't want to our kids to be unprotected during. Also, the reason we wrote this article was to warn people of some trying times ahead and the Lord will save those who trust in Him and walk faithfully before Him daily from the day of evil (2 Peter 2:29). We must therefore just have faith and be watchful in prayer. Please READ ENTIRE ARTICLE!

Family Feuds Results In Persecutions

During the year 2013, the Lord gave us a message to write an article about ‘persecutions’ in that article we focused on the why of persecutions and some experiences we and others endured. In this article, we will focus on the sources and manifestations of persecutions and trials which are very common in our everyday walks of life. While we have attempted to individualise it broadly speaking, it is the same old spirit of persecutions that manifest itself through accusations (Revelations 12:10).

Under normal circumstances, family feuds are unavoidable. Given to the various personality theories that we were taught, we owe our individual traits to our immediate environment of upbringing and our level education. Without going into much detail on what causes us to believe and do certain things our message will concentrate on how best to manage the attacks (Micah 7:6; Matthew 10:36).

Regardless of our position in the Lord, all families experience some conflict situations and for various reasons (Luke 10:40; 12:13) and the persecutions spirit is right in our homes. A family feud can be very uncomfortable because as a family, people share the same space to access facilities and resources. When there is a conflict situation in a particular family either between father and mother or either of the parents against a son or daughter some members of the family is being affected by the tense atmosphere.

In our experiences and observations, it does not matter how close or distant a relationship is between the warring parties, an attack will always be against a person’s dignity which leaves emotional scares and such attacks are aimed at discouraging and destroying a Christian’s faith (Matthew 5:11). I must add, members of one’s family can be very destructive in their attack since it is common among family members to be disrespectful towards others because of our closeness. Often, those who attack are fellow Christians who are persecuting their fellow soldiers in Christ. The harsh tone of rebuke is demonic in itself because it does not issue from love but ill-feelings (Galatians 6:1). If a person is always fault-finding he or she is not acting from love but from the spirit of persecution and there is a strong tendency of dislike towards another person. When this happen please prays and don’t retaliate because this kind of spirit wants you to say things that could be used against you as ammunition to accuse you (Matthew 27:14).

Persecutions To Hinder God's Work And Destroy Faith

Equally, we will face this same spirit in our public life whether working environment, school or any other activity and the aim of this is to discourage and destroy Christian faith. We are actually putting it very mildly here. As seasoned Christians, we are familiar with the pain of insults, accusations, slander and the oppressiveness of persecutions in the public life. While the world embraces human rights and dignity when it comes to Christians they treat us shame fully (John 16:2). The world has no room for Christians, but ridicule, mocking and oppressive treatment. Therefore, no Christian is or will ever be immune or exempted from attacks its part of our Christian salvation (2 Timothy 3:12). Thus all these attacks come through both Christians and non-Christians under the influence of evil spirits. In the bible Tobiah, Sanballat and Geshem were strong opponents of truth and that same spirit is operating to prevent Christians from completing the work God called them to do (Nehemiah 4:1-3). Sadly, others are ‘Christians’ the religious type, who persecute other Christians when they see the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in the ministry of their fellow brethren. We need to add, false ministries that exploit and smother money out of innocent people ought to be exposed and we know such enemies of truth displays bad fruit (Matthew 7:15-20).

Satan Is Relentless 

While these attacks are varies comes without warning and intensity, brethren who are operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit are being relentless attacked and this has been seen throughout Church history (Acts 5:17-40) and this ministry (Preparing for The Kingdom Of God) whom the Lord has blessed with the gifts of ‘word of knowledge’ and the ‘word of wisdom’ (1 Corinthians 12:8) which are essentially prophetic gifts to warn the body of Christ against false brethren in the Church and to prepare for the Coming of our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Furthermore, we know that the devil himself is hard at work to inflict with sicknesses (2 Corinthians 12:7) and create temptations to discourage and destroy the work of God (John 10:10).

Finally, brethren this should not create fear in any true follower of our Lord Jesus Christ but a willingness to take up one’s cross and march on to take hold of the crown of life (Matthew 16:24; Revelations 3:11; James 1:12). Being commanded by the Lord to write this reminder and given to the times we live in, the Lord has revealed to us that there will be a wave of persecutions to test our faith and commitment in some coming months. Christians, the born-again, spirit-filled the truly Jesus Christ followers will be subjected to severe persecution. What we (Claudia and Brother Glenn) have seen, we cannot say if this will be before or after the tribulation since we were present in these visions to observe the punishment of the wicked while we were spared. We therefore urge you to be prepared and remain prayed up.

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Regards and Peace

No More Devil-Breaks

Waking Up From Leading A Double-Life

“And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NIV).

Claudia Update: As a family and ministry, we would like to thank everyone who prayed for us for during our time of trial. Indeed, it was a rough week we took her to hospital last week Monday, discharged Wednesday and back to hospital Friday 10 April 2020 (Easter Friday) and discharged again early Saturday morning with no improvement to her health condition or any diagnosis as they ruled out meningitis after running some tests. This then leaves only one source the devil as the Lord said, please continue to pray for her! 

Announcement: We are praying asking the Lord to if we can run our articles twice per week as we have traditionally been posting articles once a week for the last eight (8) or more years. After knowing the Lord's mind on this matter we will report back and commence work without delay.

Let me share the word the Lord gave me during the early hours of yesterday (12 April 2020) morning. In fact this word from the Lord is the reason for our message today. I had a vision from the Lord where He displayed a note to me to convey to a brother and an active minister and the following words were written there, “For My son D… You must no more take devil’s breaks, and you must obey the word of the Lord by making a financial contribution to the ministry”. what the Lord simply means is that the brother was in the habit of back-sliding and repenting thus taking a devil's break by leading a fully committed sinful life.

We have the Lord and brother’s full blessing to share his message here to encourage and warn! Now, let me give some background information. This precious brother confessed that he lived a double-life in public life or semi-Christian lifestyle. While our brother D put up a fight in prayer daily for his deliverance, the moment the devil set the trap(s) which lured him into sin he would oblige and succumb (2 Timothy 2:26; Genesis 3:6).

Finally, his breakthrough came when he went on a ten (10) day fast while praying and the Lord honored his faith and commitment by blessing him with the message above which has placed him on a path of a life-changing experience with Christ our Lord. According to our brother D, the overwhelming pleasure of the sins he enjoyed was soul penetrating and it felt he will never win the battle against it. Brethren, let me caution you in love, the Lord said while His grace is always sufficient for us not many people have the faith and strength to make a comeback (James 1:8).

Wilful Sinning Is Addictive

It’s a fact, there are many Christians who sins purposely and returns to their old ways (2 Peter 2:22). They simply love their sinful and worldly ways and the moment they hear or see that things relating to the end-times happen they draw near to the Lord albeit half-heartedly because soon their appetite to sin will consume them (Romans 6:12-13).

At best, such “Christians” are sitting on the fence they can speak up a storm in terms of the bible. As it is, these brethren does not lack faith, they lack zeal and live a lie. Their faith is as empty their actions (James 2:14) and they keep on repenting over and over for the same offence, why? I know, because they have never been delivered in the first place from the sin(s) that control them (Romans 6:12).

Deliverance From The Angle Of Disobedience

Can a person be delivered from the power of sin and make a clean break? Yes, I have been and many others including the apostles Peter, Paul and King Manasseh (Luke 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:15; 2 Chronicles 33:11-13). Brethren, the Lord is warning us, get rid of your double-mindedness and appetite for evil. What do you mean by this appetite for evil Brother Glenn? Well, let me put it this way, many Christians thinks that God should be holding a ‘grudge’ against a Christian Brother or sister who wronged and offended them in the past.

Furthermore, my dear brothers and sisters, I have news for you, with God no sin has a measure and the Lord shows no partiality when dealing with people, when we call upon Him in repentance, He will forgive no matter the offence (Jeremiah 15:19) except of course when we blasphemy the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31). Therefore, please do not have your hopes high that God will deal with a brother or sister who sinned against you if they made right with God, they will be saved and you stand the risk of losing your own salvation for being grudgingly and unforgiving (Matthew 6:15; Acts 7:59-60; Matthew 18:21-22; Luke 17:3-4). Having being rebuked personally by the Lord, I once tried complaining to God about my wife not willing to forgive but trying to get back to her through the Lord, He ended up giving me a sharp rebuke not overlooking how I acted provocatively (Genesis 3:12-19) and that happened to me twice. It means, if I overlooked her offences and corrected her I also would have received mercy. As we can see, the Lord takes no sides but metes out justice fairly. Indeed God takes no brides, respects no persons and He is a Righteous Judge (Deuteronomy 10:17).

The Coming Darkness

Like we said in our previous article (Sudden Destruction is upon us) there will be a slight relief from this pandemic and some people will return to their former ways. Do not be deceived, use this opportunity to develop the discipline God requires of us, this is a God-given grace break useful for reflection and growing closer to Him (Psalm 46:10). This pandemic has and is still causing great damage to the world economy and we know that many discerning Christians around the world knows that this will ultimately lead to a one world government, one world currency and a one world religion (Revelations 17:1-13; 13:16-17) and some of these secret sins are already taking shape. God permitting we will write fully on this matter including pre-rapture tribulation in the coming weeks.

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Regards

Brother Glenn
