God is Judge and God is Father and as such He acts accordingly as occasion arises. While in prayer I began to hear the Lord speak these words. “I judge with the heart of righteousness, I judge with the heart of a Father who loves his children and I judge with the heart of a Creator that longs to protect and preserve that which I have created.”
The Bible tells us that He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice. [Psa 72:2 NKJV] God judges His people and expects them to do the same, not with a heart of criticism and judgment but one of righteousness, love and according to His word.
The Lord went on to say that “a righteous remnant shall arise, I shall teach them how to judge righteously with the love of a brother, with the hope of a mother and with the faithfulness of a Father.” There is only one way to judge according to these standards and that is to be in right standing, right relationship with God, to be walking according to His standards.
Just as Solomon prayed for wisdom that he might judge God’s people righteously and rightly so must we pray accordingly. "Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" [1Ki 3:9 NKJV]
The word of the Lord continued in saying that this righteous remnant shall rise up to judge within their brethren with wisdom that will lead to deliverance for those who need to be judged now. These judges will not judge with finger pointing they will judge with a heart of compassion to bring those who are held captive to sin and slavery and oppression into My presence, into My throne room. These judges will judge with abandonment because they will have already experienced My judgement in My love. My Spirit will teach them, guide them and train them on how to do this. There will be exponential growth among those who will pick up this mantel and go forth. Many have already gone, many have already been doing this, but many, many, many more need to come forth.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: 'If you will walk in My ways, And if you will keep My command, Then you shall also judge My house, And likewise have charge of My courts; I will give you places to walk Among these who stand here. [Zec 3:7 NKJV]
Just as God often called His Prophets and priests to judge by releasing His words to His people, so are we to do the same in His Spirit to the Body of Christ. But you (we) [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; [1Pe 2:9 NKJV]
There is much talk in the church about not judging, however, this is not accurate because the Bible has much to say about the saints of God judging. First, we are to judge ourselves before others, removing the plank from our own eye as Jesus said in Matthew 7, but then we are to judge what is right, “not according to appearance, but with righteous judgment.” Jn 7:24. We are not to judge the world but we are to judge the Church and we are not to be a ruler over them rather we are to judge according to the word of God by distinguishing right from wrong in order to approve, esteem, resolve or decree and or separate ourselves from those and the situation being judged if need be.
In 1 Corinthians 5 Paul is addressing the church about not keeping company with sexually immoral people but he was specifically talking about those within the church not the world. Although light has nothing to do with darkness and we are not of this world, we do have to live in it and spread the gospel and we can’t do that if we hide from those in sin. Paul then states, 12 For what [have] I [to do] with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person." [1Co 5:12-13 NKJV]
Mature believers and followers of Jesus Christ will be led by the Holy Spirit, whereby they will make righteous judgments when the need arises. To say we are not to judge a person is contradictory in many ways including the words of Jesus when He said we would know them by their fruit. The word of God is everything we need to know how to divide right from wrong, we are to use it (Heb 4:12) in judging anything along with love. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Pro 31:9
As the Lord continued to speak, I was directed to encourage people to pray for the laborers. Pray for the harvest angels to prepare the harvest, to continue to prepare the harvest and show you the people where the harvest is. He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Luke 10:2
Pray in one accord with one heart, one spirit, one mind in one Body. The Lord said that reverence, honor and respect within the ranks of My army will bring My presence and the angel armies to go before you. Honor, reverence, respect will bring My glory and My love which will bring My power. You, Church, are in such need of power.
Fire for Protection
I saw a ring of fire, white fire with people in the middle of it. Some appear to be fearful but most of them are rejoicing, fellowshipping and when they walked this ring of fire walked with them. There were demons on the outside of the fire trying to run into the circle like they could walk through it but they got knocked backwards every time.
The Lord will say to you today, if you will heed My word, if you will heed the messages of unity I am releasing among the nations, I will surround you with this wall of fire and no weapon that has been formed against you or will be formed against you will have power, it will not prosper, it will not go through the fire. This is My fire. It is a fire of purity, it is not My glory although I am glorified in it. It is fire to purify, and protect and cleanse those who will go forth with honor, respect, and reverence to Me and to each other, for those who will go forth in worship and open their mouths in praise and thanksgiving to Me no matter what their story may be. To those who will get centered on Me, on My Son, put Him on the thrones of their hearts, this fire will surround them.
Though many days of darkness shall come and many types of afflictions shall come and will come and have come these things will not end, for they are just the beginning, but Mine, Mine who will yield this word, who will heed My voice will go forth with the fire of protection just as I sent out the Israelites by fire at night and a cloud by day so will be it today.
Many are crying out for My glory, however, I cannot release Myself in fullness because you are not ready, you cannot handle My presence and many of you only come because it’s the thing to do. Your hearts must shift, you must have a transfer, you must come forth to the transfer station where you can get that stony heart, that fleshly heart that is of man’s flesh and not My flesh, exchanged for My new heart and a new spirit. Come to the transfer station, yield, repent, ask Me, I have an abundance of new hearts, of new spirits. All I have to do is breath. Just come to the transfer station. Get off the human train and step onto My glory train. He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves. Col 1:13 HCSB
For some of you, I hear your cries who want to be with Me so bad, I hear your cries. The way has not been made, there’s much battle but I will come. I will give a measure of Myself. I long to dwell with you in your places, in your places of worship I long to dwell with you on the thrones of your heart.
The transfer station is the cross, it’s a place where we go to exchange our hearts for new ones and where we receive the new spirit. Many in the Church have never done this, they attend services and appear as Christians, but on the inside there has never been a breaking whereby they surrender their lives in humility and repentance. In order to see God’s glory, one must start here first.
Resistance to God’s Glory
I saw another vision and there appeared to be great resistance to God’s glory, especially right now. I could see the rain coming down but I saw huge demonic spirits, fallen angels with a huge wingspan and they were battling to cover the rain to block the rain. They were causing the rain to become dark before it rested on the people, before it landed on the people they had contaminated it. These demonic spirits are on an assignment to swoop back and forth, dodge back and forth in those places where God is pouring out His rain and they are there to contaminate, this is why you will see the demonic spirits in your meetings, because they are making a way to get into God’s glory, they are making a way to get into His rain, just like Lucifer did when he stole worship, when he merchandised the worship. He found a way to get into the worship so he was cast down. You, too, must cast these spirits down, it must be a pure, undefiled worship unto the Lord.
The Lord said to cry out for the Spirit of the fear of the Lord, for in that is the beginning of wisdom and in wisdom is how you will know how to battle. I will release My strategy to you in wisdom.
