There are winds blowing of seasonal spiritual change. The prophetic voice has been muted and refuted. Many churches are out of order. This office, as one-fifth of the five-fold ministry, has been put aside. This gift to the church has been drug out and listened to when convenient.

Things all around us are now collapsing. Circumstances and events will not go as they've always gone. The Lord God will prepare us for things to come if we will let Him. Please read more...

The Return of Ezekiel

A prophetic voice is being raised up across the land and moves among the body without demand.  The words of warning and preparation are deliberately stifled

To the believer, I have now sent this message as a long yardage pass that has been rifled.

The average worshiper never receives My messages,
Those that I have trumpeted, through a few called-out disciples.

I am bringing the prophet back to the forefront in My body
I speak through them now with great authority and anointing;

Yet, these voices of forthcoming doom win no accolades of popularity in your upper rooms -
These words will not tickle the ears or speak peace and prosperity.

My sheep, My shepherds, and My body are deceived -
The voice of prophetic utterances must come forth now with utmost clarity,
Not quenched and ignored with the tone of Pharisee hypocrisy.

The five-fold ministry was sent to the church to perfect the saints.
The office of prophet has been compartmentalized and is seen now on special occasions;

This is usually behind closed doors and is basically ignored.

Their words don't bring forth exhortation and edification;

Leaders fear utterances will cause the poor sheep to faint and create too many complaints.

I say I am now breathing life into the ancient bones of the prophet of old.
Holy fire comes forth from those I've called to be bold.

They will speak out My words of the coming disasters that loom
My wind changes and glows in a new direction.

It is time now for a foundational shaking and open correction.

Lay down the traditions of man and organized worship of quartets and musical bands.

My Spirit will not be found in these old forms of denominations
Legal theology and ecclesiastical dispensations
Exercising them lead now to spiritual death and desolation.

Oh, My saints!

Don't you see the deception? Don't you see the satanic contamination and infiltration in my body that is now walking around with no head?

My shepherds, My sheep want to walk around in a fantasy of old-time religion and post moves of structured faith

When No I am warning that the enemy stands at the gate and the riders sit astride the apocalyptic four

The horsemen are getting ready to settle the judgmental score.

Churches, ministers, and sheep
I am sending a warning that My Spirit will no longer keep
Wake up now from that slumber that has been so deep
and allow My Words to come forth that will make

My chosen ones want to repent and weep.

All of these who have the calling of Ezekiel Stand up and eat the cross.
It is your calling! So, count the cost!
For I will use you to forewarn and attempt to awaken the sleeping and the lost

Called to a once prosperous and virtuous nation that is now deemed among the rebellious who are experiencing the beginning of spiritual desolation.

My people, these prophets will have come from the "river" Chebar
They have spent time laying prostrate and in much spiritual labor

Crucifying flesh, they have spent hours before Me
Through their lips, they speak My words of things to come
You will know that My consuming fire is on their tongues.

My churches, My body, My chosen ones
Don't do the deed that the Philistines performed so many years ago.

They touched the Ark while in tow
and with great displeasure I did show
that the works and practices of man I will not forego.

Again, I say - I am raising up in prominence the old prophet for these last days

Don't persecute and stone, for it is My Word withine them that comes directly from the throne.

The prophetic words will not be pleasant to hear, nor will they tickle your ear.

Just be patient - Listen to My voice for the squeeze is on and you really have no choice.

I love My body.
I love them so much I gave My only begooten son in their stead.
I am wanting My sheep to be properly fed

By your obedience and walking in My commands I will take you by the hand
So that you will forever reside with Me in a city in the Promised Land.

Get ready! Prepare the way!
He is sending the prophet Ezekiel to His church for a stay
To prepare His people for the time of the latter days.
Listen and pay attention to what our Father has to say
as He gets us ready to discern the Holy Spirit and it moves a new way.

What? You're not ready for this?
You have been enjoying daily activities and goings-on
As you've always done before?
Busy, busy, working for the companies and institutions of man.

Making a living and enjoying life's blessing with much thanksgiving and prosperity
that He has given us beforehand.

Our daily religious pracitces have soothed us into rote and traidtion
Not realizing this rut will not carry us to and through the coming tribuation.

God wants a beautiful bride that is completely prepared
Who is not blinded and bound by the prince of the air. Selah

The Continuing Rembrances
of Grandfather Oak, Part Nine

Grandfather, its been awhile since we sat and talked. I've been afraid to come because I told a lie.

It wasn't exactly a lie, but it wasn't exactly true either. I was afraid to tell the truth, so I only told half the truth. Grandfather, will you forgive me? I have felt just awful, and I knew I had to share this with someone because it was tearing me apart inside.

Little Oak, the Lord would always have us tell the truth. He knows our conscience will convict us of the wrong of lieing. As you have found it is not a very good feeling. Remember, Little Oak, the last time we talked I told you the story of Abraham. Well, Little Oak, Abraham had a similar experience as you did with lieing. He, too, told a lie, not exactly a lie, but still, all in the same, it was not the whole truth.

If you remember Abraham was dwelling at Bethel near the "Oak of Weeping". But it became necessary for Abraham to once again move on. Abraham had to leave the place between Bethel and Ai and go down to Egypt because there was a great famine in the land. Abraham did not want to make this downward journey into Egypt because he knew it was a fearful place where great Pharaohs ruled the land. He knew too that all Egyptians despised shepherds.

Upon coming into the land, Abraham was so fearful he told everyone in the land of Egypt that Sarah was his sister, not his wife. He was afriad if he told the truth the Pharaoh would kill him.  Like you, Abraham, was convicted of his lieing. And because of his lie, Sarah his wife could have been given to Pharaoh to be his wife.

But you know, Little Oak, God was faithful to protect Sarah and Abraham even though Abraham told a lie. The whole land of Egypt suffered great plagues because of Sarah being in Pharaoh's house. Pharaoh called Abraham before him and confronted him about the lie he had told.

Abraham in fear told Pharaoh the truth. Though very angry, Pharoah did not kill Abraham, but commanded Abraham and his family to leave the land of Egypt. God protected Abraham, Sarah, and his family even though Abraham had lied.

Little Oak, fear is a terrible thing, and like you experienced, Abraham found lieing did not help, it made matters even worse. Hopefully, Little Oak, you will never again tell a lie or half truth because of fear of what might happen otherwise. I know, Little Oak, you found it a very uncomfortable feeling to know you lied. Lieing always makes us feel like we are unworthy. But thank goodness, Little Oak, you came to me and was able to share this with me. Now you can be at peace, knowing your conscience is clear. God will forgive you when you repent and turn from lieing. To be continued. . .
