WORD OF THE LORD
Received by J.  Glasco

My sheep do not recognize where the devil has come to divide, because they are deceived. Their pastors' eyes are blinded to such because areas of their lives have not been conquered for me; such as pride, tradition, and idolatry. I am going to tear down their pride and uncover the deadman's bones (works) that are now being manifested in My temple. They will turn loose of the rote and tradition that have ensnared them into bondage and captivity.

They have taken up works, and yet they call this My presence and My spirit. Carnality, pride, and lust take precedence in My services. They are My services, yet I do not attend. My Word is there in a very limited fashion, but My leadership and anointing is not on the order in the established church.

The people in days to come will feel a dryness - they will know My presence is not there. Through this, they will begin to seek Me. Look for Me in a greater measure. I am calling them back to the secret closet, back to a time alone with Me, worshiping, fasting, back into a place of My freedom where I can manifest in the midst of them where I can control the service. The hours, time limits will change - so will hearts and attitudes. My church services will not be just a place to attend at a certain date and time. My people will long to be in My house - they will have great love and compassion for the rest of My body.

Man's order will be thrown out because of the desire of My people. They will want Me They will want to see My glory. They will want to bask in My presence. They will love Me as a young virgin awaits the bridegroom before a wedding.

SPIRITUAL ADULTERY is prevailing in My church -- coming to the building and following traditional guidelines is in itself idolatry. They love their form of worship now, but I can tell you it is a stench in My nostrils. I am going to remove My hand from the congregation. The dryness, the tradition, the compromise, man's designs and works will all be felt and seen. This will create a vacuum in the believer's life, and he will begin to seek Me in a greater measure.

OH, REJOICE! ! REJOICE! For the bridegroom is in preparation to come back for His bride. I will get those chosen for the bride prepared. She will think only of Him, to make herself beautiful and pleasing -- and most of all, her heart will desire to see the Son and be with Him for all eternity. The price to pay is great, but the reward's worth cannot be measured by any man.

In this last hour, My sheep will hear My voice. I am going after those stray sheep who love Me and have ears to hear. I am going to make Myself known to them in a greater measure. By My great light and presence, they will move out of the web of deception. They will see satan's scheme for today's powerless, lifeless church.

My sheep have been in a spiritual wilderness, wandering further and further away from the flock, because they have no guidance from their shepherds. The existing pastors are too preoccupied with the cares of this world and the traditions of man to go after the straying sheep. My heart grieves and longs for My lost sheep. They ARE MY SHEEP -- I want them gathered unto Me, under My instruction, under My voice. My spirit will move on each heart. They will know it; they will hear it. I will woo them back to a place of hunger, desire, and thirst for Me, and I will create within them a new heart.

I am not coming to the traditional edifices of man, the monuments, the shrines, erected by man's hands. The walls have been erected to keep My guidance and leadership out. Man's design and ways are enclosed within the walls in My name. They will speak of My coming. They will sing of My coming. They will pray for My coming. Yet, I will not hear them. I am coming for My sheep. I will be found gathering them up. I will be with them and in them.

And yes, I will send them shepherds, pastors, who have been with Me in the secret place. My glory, My anointing will be seen and felt when these special dear ones come and assemble themselves together.

[Through this word, the Lord spoke to my heart about the present day works of many churches. He is going to call out those who have ears to hear.]

"Man's hand will not be seen on the last day church. My humility will be placed in every believer. I'm pulling down their pride in their gifted members, offerings, donations, and name of respectability."

In My eyes, I see her as a sick old woman. She has gone beyond her years of productivity. She is no longer physically attractive. She does not have the energy or desire to do the works I've called her to do. She is in poor health. Because of this, she doesn't even feel like doing what I've called her to do. She wants to lie down on her bed and rest.

Her mind has been dulled by the many attacks on her physical body. She seldom hears Me and then becomes confused or forgets what I have asked her to do. She is POWERLESS to run this last race. She is no longer effective. Because she still needs to exist, she has her props to hold her up -- manmade operations and traditions.

The old woman cannot produce life and nurture new children. She has no milk in her breasts. She thinks about good times of the past, and dreams of what once was or what could be. She is not physically or emotionally capable to act on her dream.

I am raising up an army ---- a remnant, preparing a bride to take her place. My anointing, blessings, favors rest here as I prepare her for the soon coming bridegroom.

FROM THE EYES OF THE OAK

GRANDFATHER'S TALES AND OBSERVANCES
His Continuing Story...

by J. Kirkpatrick

" You are very famous, Grandfather Oak," said Little Oak. "What a beautiful tree you are. I want to be just like you."

" Yes, Little Oak, I have been around for a very long time. Mine has been a very fruitful life."

" O Grandfather, you are such a giant symbol, standing there in all your strength and beauty,"

" Well, Little Oak, it has taken many, many years."

" Oh, Grandfather! Oh no!", cried Little Oak. "I see them coming to cut you down. Oh, please don't let them destroy your beauty, Grandfather. Oh, the pain! They have cut you down! You will never again be the object of strength and beauty for all to see," Little Oak tearfully cried.

"But, Little Oak, do not be sad for me," said Grandfather Oak. "This has been my destiny since before I was born. I was born to become a very useful, strong vessel for others to enjoy."

"O Grandfather," exclaimed Little Oak, "I am beginning to see what you mean. Your beauty will still be very apparent. Many will see you, and admire your beautiful inner beauty. You will make some family many useful objects. The craftsman will shape you, and sand your beauty. There is no other tree that could be used for such a long time. I am so thankful you have shown me that your usefulness is not finished."

"Yes, Little Oak," said Grandfather, "the cutting hurt only for a little while. But now I will become something beautiful for all to see. I will become what God has destined me to be."     To be continued ...
