Heavenly Intercession Part Two
The message of the Holy Spirit for me was both profound and sobering. I could see my whole life laid out before me, and yet there was a life changing realization that had come in the knowing. I could no longer afford the luxury of a halfhearted commitment. I choose to live out of the kingdom and light of heaven and the light of God’s kingdom.
I began to sob and cry out to Jesus, “Lord I am an unclean, unworthy vessel who by my hardness of heart and ties to this world have sinned against such great light. I have time and time again presumed upon your grace and woe is me”.
I was still in that great assembly of saints who all around me were crying out and wailing before God in the light of intercession. I could not hear the words that each individual was saying to God but the looks of inner consternation on the faces of each individual I saw matched my own. I lowered my head and cried out to Jesus to be delivered from my own revulsion of what I saw inside of me. I had thought on earth that I was doing all right but in the bright light of this intercession in heaven I saw myself in the light of a higher understanding.
All at once I was caught up in the Spirit and found myself looking down on an army of darkness. It was a cloud out of the pit of hell itself. This dark cloud covered the landscape and inside it were the legions of hell. I saw on their faces a look of devilish glee and damnation.
They were marching in step and it was obvious to me they had a purpose. They carried a banner upon which was written the words presumption, pride and arrogance. I knew at once they were gathered as an evil force to infiltrate the church of the living God. As I continued to watch they began to march past me, and for some reason although I saw them, they did not seem to notice me.
I felt a hand gently touch my shoulder and turned to see Jesus standing beside me. His eyes were as a flame of fire and when he spoke his voice was tinged with both compassion and anger.
“ Son the time has come when judgment of my people must begin. These are they of whom Paul spoke of in my word the end time generation that would believe a lie and fall into great deception”.
I suddenly realized that as they got closer these were not demons out of the pit but people many carrying bibles and their faces showing an expression of great arrogance. I looked at the master and his face was filled with grief.
“ Son these are they that have a form of righteousness but their hearts are far from me. They are ever learning but have no spiritual comprehension of the truth. They think they are the salt of the earth, and the greatest spiritual force for me ever assembled. Their hearts are full of avarice and greed. They have sold themselves after the sins of Noah’s generation. They serve me for gain and they line their pockets with the sparse resources of the very ones they should be serving. They come before me and laugh and dance in my presence when their hearts are far from me”.
Jesus turned to me and looked in my eyes and as he spoke my knees began to shake and I almost collapsed before him. He gently touched my shoulder and I received strength.
“ These serve me for material gain and do not hear the cries of the lost and dying all around them. They feel that the height of spiritual experience can only be felt in the lifting of their voices to me in praise that I should bless them and give them more and more”.
“I said Lord when I saw them from afar off I thought they were the demons of hell but as they got closer I saw they were people was I mistaken in my original understanding”?
He sighed and said, “no my son for both views are correct for from a distance you were made aware of the spiritual forces of darkness that is the real source of their power and inspiration. You saw the people as they see themselves they march on totally oblivious to their condition. They are presumptuous for they have changed the truth into a lie they no longer are a force of righteousness in the world and in fact condemn any voice for the true faith that stands in their midst.
They belittle those whose hearts burn for obedience to my word and the preaching against sin and depravity of which so many of them are consumed; is abhorrent to them. Their hearts are filled with pride in their presumed spiritual authority they even teach that I am their servant rather than they are mine. They think of themselves as the most enlightened generation of them all, yet their hands are full of adultery and their hearts consumed with the things of this world. The hour is coming when the Son of Man shall clear his threshing floor and those who will not repent and begin to live out of the truth shall be swept away by the ungodliness in their own hearts, and then the truly righteous sons shall stand and shake the world with my glory”.
Jesus then fell silent and with a look of grief and sadness watched these deceived souls walk by. Presently he sighed and continued.
“These are those who have itching ears, they run here and there searching for any new thing. They are like the waves of the sea tossed here and there and susceptible to any new thing or doctrine. Son there is coming a strong delusion from the pit of hell itself, and any who are not grounded in my word and live out of the truth shall be deceived by it. Those who do not base their faith in a personal connection to me will be the willing disciples of the evil one that shall come.
The first beast out of the sea that you have seen shall ensnare them, and with lies and deception snatch the truth from them and swallow them up. Their hands are even now covered with blood. Step-by-step the beast shall bring them under such delusion that when that evil one shall come forth to deceive the whole world they shall be his willing disciples. He shall speak great things and perform signs and wonders but it will all be a lie. His power short lived for the Son of man shall destroy him. He shall feel my wrath and be cast down”.
Having said this he fell silent. I was again caught up in the Spirit and found myself back in the small cave again where this journey began, in the side of the mountain of God another secret place of the most high.
