The church has been comatose, unconscious, and unaware: asleep. And as the church has slept the fires of hell have been encroaching and doctrines of demons have been embraced. Awake! Awake! It is better to awaken and feel the pain and discomfort of the flames and still escape than to be consumed by them in your sleep! Spiritual fathers and mothers shake your children awake! Even as all things will be shaken by Me, do not be afraid to shake awake those in your care. For I will hold My shepherds accountable if they do not attempt to lead My sheep to safety – if they refuse to speak the truth of My Word instead of the opinions of man. Set trumpets to your mouths for the time is approaching.
Even as My people awaken, I am going to allow them the opportunity to dig trenches around their families and communities through intercession and living out My Word. The awakened church will stand as a barrier, as well as a place of refuge, and many will find relief in My outstretched arms. This will not be an opportunity of long duration; however, many whose eyes have been darkened will have scales drop from their eyes, and they will stand boldly alongside My church. Those who have previously denied Me will yet find themselves at My feet, and it will be an extreme upset to the forces of darkness, increasing the heat of its indignation. Do not fear in that time, for this will activate a harvest for My Kingdom.
The cry to awaken has gone forth from heaven, and the call has sounded to ready yourselves for war! Unashamedly pass judgment on the works of darkness that profane My Holy Name. The culmination of time is at hand; My return is imminent! Awake, arise, and go boldly forth as My Warrior Bride!
Joel 2:1, “Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD is coming; for it is at hand.” NASB
