Time of Separation

Rev. George G. Delo

"I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, And from Judah an heir of My mountains; My elect shall inherit it, And My servants shall dwell there. Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, And the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, For My people who have sought Me. But you are those who forsake the LORD, Who forget My holy mountain, Who prepare a table for Gad, And who furnish a drink offering for Meni. Therefore I will number you for the sword, And you shall all bow down to the slaughter; Because, when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight. Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, My servants shall eat, But you shall be hungry; Behold, My servants shall drink, But you shall be thirsty; Behold, My servants shall rejoice, But you shall be ashamed; Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, But you shall cry for sorrow of heart, And wail for grief of spirit" (Isaiah 65:9-14).

I am bringing forth My elect, those who have feared Me and honored Me, and they shall possess My inheritance. Those who seek My face shall find rest for their souls and I will hedge them into My blessings and they shall be Mine.

As you enter into this third day, I am bringing a greater separation to My people who are Mine and I will make them known as My special possession. I will spare them even as a man spares his own son who serves him. My people will be known by My presence and power as never before.

But for those who will not seek My face, who have forsaken Me for the gods of this world, who have neglected My holy temple, you shall reap what you have sown and the wages of your sin will be paid promptly. You will come under the storm clouds that are gathering on the horizon for the ungodly because I have called you but you did not answer, I have sought you but you would not be found. And when I did speak to you, you refused to listen but closed your ears and continued in your ways of evil before My face choosing to serve yourselves rather than Your Creator. You have chosen to go your own way rather than the way I have set before you.

Therefore I am separating My people. The paths you have chosen are ever widening from each other and now you shall begin to see the fruit of your ways. Do not be deceived by what you see for prosperity is My last test before judgment. I have prospered your land to see if you would obey Me or not. But the time is coming when I shall remove My hand of blessing and you shall see who are truly Mine and who are not. My servants shall eat while you are hungry; My servants shall drink while you are thirsty; My servants shall rejoice while you are ashamed of your ways; My servants shall sing for joy of heart in My presence while you shall cry for sorrow of heart and grief of spirit because I have left you. I am even now bringing greater separation to My people and I shall cover My own with My hand and shall keep them in the midst of the storm.

Therefore, I beseech you My people, return to the Lord your God with all of your heart and seek My face while it is yet time. Separate yourselves and come out from among the multitudes who are engrossed in harlotry with this world. Return from your faithlessness and I will heal your backslidings and I will revive your spirits and I will raise you up once again to live in My sight in holiness and true devotion. Come forth from your darkness and I will bring you into My light. Forsake your idolatries and I will set you on high. Seek the Lord your God and you shall live.

During Worship I saw a great fire coming across the land. It devoured everything in its sight. Then I saw Life coming up out of the burnt parched remains. Green leaves/trees shooting up but only from those things that had been rooted and grounded in Him.

Then He gave me this Word.....

MY Fire is coming to bring change, to burn away everything that would exalt itself above Me and the Truth of Who and ALL I AM.
I bring change to make those who will enter into ME, like ME.
MY Fire is a Refiners Fire.
Will you stand now in the fiery affliction... Trusting I will bring you through? Truly I will make you like ME...
Trust now and stand in ME...
Judgment is now here...
Judgment is now come to bring change.
Enter in now for this is the day of your visitation.
Enter in now so you will have what it takes to stand when I bring judgment to this land.
Why choose the darkness when you can have ALL when you walk in MY LIGHT?

(Then the Lord gave me this song...)

Look not unto men and follow ME
Look not unto men. Follow ME

How will you stand if you can't stand alone with ME
How will you stand at all?
How will you stand if you can't stand alone with ME
How will you stand at all?

How will you stand at all?

Look not unto men and follow ME
Look not unto men. Follow ME

Look not unto men. Follow ME

May we walk in the Truth in the Light of His Word.
And may our faith endure the "Fiery Refiners Fire" of afflictions.
So that when we look into the deeper things in the midst of these fiery trials, we will see His face shining back in the mirror image of His perfection...
Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith.
Humbly submitted to you, in Him,
Blessings (\O/)o Shelleymae Bartlett

DRAW CLOSE TO MY SIDE

Yolanda Ballard

Come, My little ones, come close to My side for I want to draw you near to My heart for I love you so much and want you close to Me. Many have drifted away from My intimate presence because they have chose to put other things first. But what is more important than drawing near to Me?

For in My presence I give you the strength you need to stand against the wiles of the enemy. And in My presence I fill you with My glory that you may touch other's lives with My grace and glory. Do not wander away from My side and take on a ministry of your own. Do not get caught up with works and acts of busyness that only distract you from My perfect will for your life.

For in My presence I will prepare you to do My works to touch other lives....to heal the sick and set the captives free. In My presence you will receive orders to carry out My will....but how do you know My will if you don't spend time with Me? Give Me your whole heart and worship Me by just drawing close and basking in My presence. For this pleases Me so much to just have My children gathered around Me and receiving My love.

So draw close to Me, My children. Draw close to My side and rest in My presence, and I will refresh you and anoint you with My power. I will heal you and strengthen you because you have been in My presence receiving all I have for you. So draw near and be blessed, My children, for I love you and want you to stay close, says your Father.

CHRIST IS GOD'S POWER!
by Jose Alvarez

Part of my ministry in the service to the Body of Christ, is to take my twelve years of studying the New Testament in its original Greek, and brings it forth to the believer in a structure, which is simple and easy to understand.

I believe that the church today is deficient in four areas. These are the four areas that endeavor to tackle.

(I have taken excerpts from past teachings that hit briefly upon these four areas, in order to give you a sample of what's on this web site.)

1) The most vital need of the believer is obtain the revelation of Jesus Christ in his or her life. God has not given to us blessings, miracles, and things. God gave us one thing, His Son Jesus Christ. The church spends most of its time asking God for things. We fail to realize that all of these things reside inside the Son of God who dwells in our hearts. When Jesus is revealed within us, all of these blessings are revealed alongside with Him, and become an automatic reality in our lives.

CHRIST IS GOD'S POWER!

1Co 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Let us begin by understanding, that when we ask God to give us His power, in reality we are asking amiss. He has given us His Son! Look with me at the scripture above please. Jesus is the power of God. Therefore when He is revealed in our lives, God's power is revealed with Him, in Him, or alongside with Him. The more that Christ is revealed in our lives, the more that we will automatically operate in the power of God. We don't need power; we need the Son of God to become a reality to us and the power will be ours!

Christ is God's Righteousness, God's Redemption, and God's Sanctification.

1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

In Corinthians 1:30 we see that Christ has been made into righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. Christ does not dispense these blessings! He Himself is the blessings! If we ask God to make us righteous, are prayers will be only halfway answered. If we ask God to sanctify us, we have missed God's best.

God's righteousness has to do with the manifested or outward qualities of God that originate from His inward holy character.

Sanctification is defined as the progression of our being purified by the Spirit of God.

Redemption has to do with the process of our being rescued from the power of Satan, bondage, sin, and the love of the world.

Christ does not produce these things in us as separate blessings. He has been made into these attributes. As Christ becomes revealed within our lives, God's righteousness becomes more and more of a reality in us. It is automatic! As Christ becomes more discernible in us, we automatically find ourselves more and more free from sin, bondage and the schemes of the enemy.

2) The great responsibility of the church is to bring the fullness of the revelation of the person of Jesus Christ. Total revelation of the Christ takes the active participation of every member. Much of our current church structure does not follow the New Testament model, in that there are a few ministers and many pew sitters.

Eph 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Every member then, of a local body, must work to his or her peak performance through the use of spiritual gifts, callings, and ministries. There can be no "one-man show," and no pews sitters. Spiritual gifts manifest the Person of Christ.

The full effectiveness of every member's ministries and spiritual gifts, will bring a local body into manifesting a full revelation of Jesus Christ. This revelation becomes the fullness of the glory of God, which is displayed to the world through the local body, drawing all men unto Jesus, and bringing revival!

John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

3) It is essential that believers learn how to walk in the Spirit through the rhema word which is the voice of God.

The "logos" describes "the word of God" as an idea or a concept, usually in a written form. The "rhema" however is a personally spoken word of revelation, prophecy, or knowledge, through the mouth of God to us, in regards to a particular circumstance. We have all said at one time or another, "this scripture really leaped out at me"! This is a "rhema word" given you by the Lord to minister to you in a particular situation. Gross misunderstanding and ignorance of the distinction between these two types of "words", lends greatly to the weak state of our church today. Let us look at some examples that will help us to learn.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every RHEMA word that proceedeth( from moment to moment) out of the mouth of God. . Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the RHEMA word of God: Brethren, it is time for us to know that the only offensive weapon that we have against Satan and his schemes such as sickness, bondage, and sin, is a specific word of God for each and every circumstance that we encounter.. If we don't know how to hear and operate in the revelatory word of God, we will never attain a complete victory against the devil, the world, and the flesh!

4) Finally, believers need to understand who they are in Christ, and know that they must live totally from the presence of Christ. We endeavor to lay a basic foundation of the gospel in a simple form, so that believers can find victory in their walks with the Lord.

"What It Means To Be In Christ"
Let us take the example of a book. Let us judge Christ to be this book. Now let us consider ourselves to be a piece of paper. We take the piece of paper and put into The Book. Whatever happens to the book will happen to us, because we are now "IN THE BOOK." The great Chinese apostle Watchman Nee coined this example. Brother Nee goes on to say that because every believer is "IN CHRIST", whatever happened to Christ happened to us. Therefore when Christ was crucified, we were crucified with Him, because we are "IN HIM". Therefore our sinful nature has been dealt a once and for all mortal blow.

When Jesus was buried, we were buried "IN HIM". This means that our whole sinful nature has the potential to decay from us until is totally gone.

When Christ was raised from the dead, we were raised "IN HIM", far above in distance and authority over the realm of the demonic, diseases, circumstances and the like to allow us to potentially live a victorious life here on earth.

RESURRECTION SPRINGTIME

Olivia Reitz

"That I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed, in spirit unto His likeness, even unto death. That if possible I may attain to the resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]." Phi 3:10,11

My faithful ones, I have told you of things not yet seen. No-one else, that you personally knew, heard it or affirmed it. What appeared as foolishness to others was perfectly natural to you and you believed what you heard, and you have moved on what you heard. Faith in your God brought obedience. In spite of anyone's logic or your own - in spite of mockers, you obeyed because you have believed what I said. My covenant people who have been in a time of preparation so that you could carry My Glory. A people who have given up all and have been willing to pay 'any price' to obtain My will in their life. And many of you have paid a 'very high price' during this long winter season.

Now you sense a new joy and expectation springing up in your spirit. That is, as it should be, for you are about to experience a "Resurrection Springtime". You are entering a 'new beginning', a rebirth - shaking off all that has hindered you. The hand of your God is upon you and I AM lifting from you what couldn't be lifted before. You have been preparing for this event and you now stand at the "eve" of your resurrection springtime.

As you have traveled through your long winter season, you have become aware of who and what I AM and who and what you are - and what you needed to do to continue on your inward journey. The agony and distress of this winter season floods your eyes with tears. Many times you have wept, for there were moments My promises seemed meaningless and you felt that there was no hope. But now, you are rejoicing in My promises and My peace is flooding you at this moment and 'you know that you know', that I have everything under control. You have said it many times, but now you will know it fully ... JESUS IS ALIVE, JESUS IS ALIVE IN US! A great and glorious day is upon you, your resurrection springtime.

Springtime is about to burst on the scene, as a "suddenly", like a tidal wave - overtaking My faceless, nameless, covenant people - and the Son shall fall on your face. Immersed in the barrenness of winter, to be resurrected by springtime. As in nature, Spring, a time of rebirth, after your long winter's sleep, blooming, an awareness on a higher level, emerging from your death of winter to live more fully IN ME! Blossoming forth in beauty and majesty, bursting forth from a wintry grave. Get ready for the shockingly spectacular, for you are coming alive in Radiance and Glory!

Since the beginning of creation, nothing compared to the resurrection and glory of My Son. Now once again, nothing can be seen as equal to what I AM about to do, either in magnitude or significance. My wilderness people have been in the long winter season of their lives, now comes resurrection, emerging from death to life. A RESURRECTION SPRINGTIME.

I WILL DIRECT YOU TO CROSS THE RIVER

Stephen Hanson

EX 14: [6] So he had his chariot made ready and took his army with him. [7] He took six hundred of the best chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with officers over all of them.

EX 14:23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh's horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea.

EX 14:15 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.

"My church is going through many changes in the new year."

"There will be many changes in the leadership. There will be many changes in "many" ways.

(The Lord showed me a general or leader, in an army. He was turning around and I saw his face as he motioned to someone behind him. He was carrying a staff, but upon looking at it closer, it was a crutch. He had had difficulty walking, and had been either injured or was getting older. I looked at his feet and they were blistered and cracked from the journey. Behind him in this procession, were some others, but I couldn't make out their faces. One though, stood out--it was a woman who was carrying a young child. There were donkeys and other beasts of burden who were in the procession, helping to carry the belongings of those who walked. A team of horses also pulled a carriage with some belongings in it. As this scene continued, I saw the same man and he had reached a river in the journey. He looked behind him for the others who had been following him, as if waiting for them to catch-up with him. Then I saw the face of Pharaoh as he sat upon his throne. He sank down into his chair and was pondering about those who were ready to go on ahead across the river. Then teams of chariots came rushing across the plain as if to stop those who were ready to cross. Then the man motioned to the others to begin to cross. The water began to separate and a deep channel was cut into the bottom of the river, thus allowing them to cross. It was a trench though, like a road, but made by the hand of God Himself. I then was shown a sandaled-foot, one of the people who was ready to go on across. I watched as the water was just about an inch beginning to cover the foot. The foot stood still and wouldn't move at all. The water began to climb and climb up the leg, and the rest of the body of this person. I then saw them under the water, unable to move and seemingly drowning then from the water. The Lord then said, "Now watch and see what happens." I watched as the waves and the great water came over the people and thus "folded-over" them. It was like a huge canopy of water had folded over them. The water's mechanism were the very hands of God Himself. His hands folded overhead thus, causing the water to collapse over them. *No one had made it over to the other side.)

This is the word and the interpretation:

"Many of my people have been afraid to go over onto the other side. You have had leaders who have brought you there. But you have stopped because of the world's system. Pharaoh has chased you all the way there; but you have looked at the water in fear. You will not reach on over to the other side, unless you look to Me and not to the water that is all around you. Your leaders have brought you this far, but they are fearful, many of them are. I will raise up a new group of leaders. They will not look at the waves all around them, nor be dismayed by them."

The Widening Chasm

Marsha Burns

My beloved, the chasm is widening between you and those whose hearts have grown cold against Me. My desire is for My people to serve Me with unreserved passion. I am calling you to a new place, a higher place in Me. But, I say to you that even now there are those that are choosing to stay in old places of compromise or even retreat further to satisfy the flesh. Do not weep nor mourn for them. They have been given the same opportunities that you yourself have taken to become sons and daughters of My glory, but they have loved and chosen the darkness rather than light. Refuse to come into agreement with their rebellion through your sympathy for their condition. For, they will withdraw into greater darkness and confusion, and I tell you the truth -- I do not know them.

An Invitation To Believe

Teresa Seputis

My people, this is not a time for words, it is a time for faith and action. I am calling you to leave behind your limitations and come forward with Me. The limitations that are upon you are of your own making, not of Mine. Shake them off of you, they are not My will for you.

Have I not clearly shown you My will for you? It is not a placing of restrictions and limitations on your growth. Have you not read John 14:12-14? Did not My Son say that it is Our will for you to do the same works that Jesus did? Have you not read how He cast out demons, healed the sick, proclaimed the kingdom of Heaven, set captives free and worked signs and wonders that defied the laws of nature. Have you not read how Jesus saw what His Father was doing and then did it with Him. Child, this is My will for you as well!

Do you remember when Peter asked to walk with My Son on the water? What was Our response? Did we say "yes" or "no"? We said "Yes" and invited Peter out of the boat into walking with Us in Our power. It was NOT Peter's God who limited Peter and caused him to fail. It was his own lack of faith. Have you not read how My Son said "come," and how Peter walked on the water in My power and anointing. It was not until he took his eyes off of My Son that he began to sink. He looked upon the storm and upon waves and he became frightened. He began to question his faith and that was when he began to sink. Yet, even when Peter's faith failed him, My Son did not fail him. My Son reached out and pulled Peter to safety, He did not allow him to be destroyed by his own fears and doubts.

Child, stretch forth your faith. Begin to believe what I have already said to you in My word, the Bible. Begin to read the promises that are there and begin to believe in them. Begin to stretch forth your faith to Me and watch Me meet you in it. For I have called you to do with Me what I am doing and the only thing that is limiting you in this is your own lack of faith.

I am not calling you to begin by calming the storm. For your faith needs to grow and it is My desire to assist you in this. But I am calling you to begin by taking baby steps in believing Me and in trusting Me. I am not sending you to the hospitals to heal all who are there and clear them out. But I am calling you to begin to pray for those around you who are sick.. your friends, your coworkers, your brethren at Church. Watch Me meet you in those prayers that your faith may grow and increase. I am not calling you to hold city wide crusades, but to share My power and My reality with those around you as situations arise. I am calling you to take baby steps of faith that you might learn to walk in faith. I am calling you to fix your eyes on My Son and on the promises He has given you. Do not focus on the problems or it will drain the little faith that you have. Rather, fix your attention on Me and allow Me to meet you and to increase your faith.

Child of Mine, it is My desire for you to be successful in Me. It is My desire for you to grow in faith, to learn to walk in My power and in My authority. It is My desire for you to see clearly what I am doing, that you might do it with Me. My plans for you are good, not evil. My desires for you are good. I desire to remove the limitations from you that hold you back from becoming the man or woman of God that I have destined you to be. My heart for you is that you might succeed in Me, that you be transformed to the image of My Son through My indwelling Spirit and that you be released in faith. I have not placed limitations on restrictions on you... Rather I have called you to do with Me the same works My Son did while He walked on this earth. Child that is My will for you, it is My plan for you.

I desire for you to walk in it on a daily basis. Many of you think, "I am not allowed to do this.. it is for someone else." But I say unto you, you are indeed allowed. I am not limiting you, you are limiting yourself. If only you stretch forth your faith, you will see My power and glory flow through you on a regular basis. For, child of Mine, I desire to do this for you.

It is My will for you to move with Me in My power on a daily basis. It is also My will for you to walk in holiness and victory. If you will look to Me, I will increase your faith so that you can do the very things with Me that I desire to do through you.

Child, I am not limiting you, you are limiting yourself. But if you allow Me to, I will remove those limitations from you. Look to Me and allow Me to increase your faith. Then you can step out and watch Me meet you. Come to Me and let Me expand your horizons. I desire to take you further than you believe it is possible to go. Allow Me to rework your expectations over this coming year. Allow Me to give you My vision, for child of Mine, it is time for you to move with Me in My power and glory.

The miraculous is to be normal for you. You are to be a demonstration of My power. And My anointing is to rest on you. Only believe, child of Mine, and all of this shall be yours. And if you are still unable to believe, then come to Me and allow Me to increase your faith. It is My desire to do that for you. For, child of Mine, I would have you walk in the supernatural on a daily basis. I would have you do with Me what I am doing that My glory might be manifest on this earth. Child of Mine, purpose in your heart to do this with Me and you shall obtain it. For, I am with you and you can do all things through Me.
