Just wanted to drop a quick note and let you all know how much I appreciate your input on the Honor of Kings. We may not always see eye-to-eye, but we have “common ground” in that we revere the Word of God. For that reason, I’m proud to call you my brothers and sisters.
The year 2013 is going to be INTENSE! The situation in the Middle East, along with the rapid decline of the United States has left me in a state of sobriety that I have never felt before. I hear the Voice of the Lord saying, “Go deeper, deeper, deeper! Live according to the Truth in My Word, Kevin! This is My Will …. even your Sanctification!”
I started off this year with the “impression” that the Way was going to get narrower and narrower. I’ve re-posted that Word here for those of you who may not have read it yet.
While spending time in prayer with my family, the Lord began to strongly impress upon me the importance of staying on a narrow path. I’m not sure if what follows is a “prophetic word” for 2012, or just a revelation of where the Body is headed, but I’m just going to write it down and let you judge (1 Cor. 14:29).
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
We are called to take the path of the Sanctified Ones. True followers of Jesus are those who are set apart for His purposes alone. Followers of the Messiah do not have a fan base and they are not moved by the glares of those who are perishing. Those with firm foundations are not moved with glory clouds and gold dust, they are moved only by His Word.
“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.”
The harlot church is looking for new ways to be free, which sounds great on the surface, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find that they really just want to indulge in their sin and cover it with cheap grace. Those who are truly set free, become a slave to our King. They follow His Ways and bear Holy Fruit.
“But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.”
True lovers of Christ can accept this saying without reservation, but those who pretend loyalty to the King cannot. They can’t comprehend or understand that WE ARE FREE! Free to no longer obey sin. Free to no longer fulfill the lust of the flesh. Free to no longer sow seeds of unrighteousness. Free to obey God’s voice.
Free to walk the narrow path.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”
As we live our lives in obedience to His Word, it sheds light on the narrow path, clearing the Way before us and making our destination obvious.
This year, you will see the path get narrower and narrower …. the call for a deeper sanctification grow stronger and stronger. The harlot church will call you legalistic …. they will accuse you of falling from grace.
But walking in the Light of the Word will make your destination clear.
“But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”
To those on the fence (you know who you are), you are NOT in the Valley of Decision. You are perishing …. TURN!
“Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.”
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”
May 2012 be a year of blessing to you who seek His Face.
Some of you may be feeling this Call, as well. I do admit, it really is a lonely road. The King never said it was going to be easy! But the Reward is going to be PRICELESS.
People, I honestly believe that, by this time next year, our “way of life” (if it ever WAS a “life”) is going to be turned upside down on it’s head. We are not going to be the same …. we may not even have access to computers! This whole Babylonian system (which includes our modern day “church system”) is going to be destroyed …. because it was never part of God’s plan to begin with.
There is ONE THING that you can count on though … the WORD of the Living God! It (He) is our Anchor in the storm …. It (He) will never leave us nor forsake us … It (He) is the Source.
Turn to His Word …. “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
For the Truth,
