The time of silence in this tomb has not been easy. Our life has been quiet in this motel room for the past 28 months. We struggle sometimes with frustration and discouragement, as our family longs to be released. We have not written a blog for a considerable time. Why? Because we committed to write only what the Lord gives. However, God has given us insight into what is coming and now is the time to write the vision.
Let us preface this blog with a clarification of what it is not. God has not shown us a detailed picture of the future, but the strategy of what He is doing. Only those that have traversed or are traversing the wilderness season will come to realize the importance of what is coming, and what God is doing. Soon.
Explosion of deviance
Like most Christians in the Body of Christ, we watch our world with growing consternation. We see the rise of the progressive left wing liberal ideology, creeping like an aggressive cancer over the earth. The sexual deviance of the LGBT agenda and its attempt to be normalized across the globe, has not gone unnoticed. The blight of socialism has grown inexorably, like a grotesque balloon across the world. It’s the mantra of man depending on man. Leaning on man is an abomination before a sovereign God, who calls us to trust only in Him. The scourge of abortion, unchecked illegal immigration, and the absolute and total hatred for law and order has broken our hearts. During the terrible and scandalous reign of Obama, light was almost snuffed out as darkness loomed large over the earth.
The globalists rule with condescending arrogance.
The past few years have seen an absolute exponential growth in the darkness that covers the earth. ‘Self’ has unleashed evil unprecedentedly. It has given the prince of darkness and his minions terrific latitude and power. They used it to spread their filth wherever they go, and whenever they find a human vessel to be their host. The question becomes, how did they get such power? And what we can do about it? God knew what was coming and prepared answers before He ever created the earth.
The power of ‘self’
We link the first question with our inherently evil ‘self’ nature. Although satan and the demons possess great spiritual power, they originally had no dominion on earth. God gave to Adam and all his descendants this dominion. The evil one used deception and deceit to trick man into handing over that dominion, usurping mankind’s heritage. As more and more people give in to their base ‘self’ nature, it gives satan and his demons even more dominion, power and control. They then use this power to gain even more control, thus plunging humans into a vicious downward cycle. It has always been this way, but only recently have we seen it in such proportions. Only in the time of Noah was it worse.
If you look, at the evil rampant in the world, you can always see ‘self’ at the core.
Socialism is all about man putting his trust in other men, and not God, but the people they trust are filled with ‘self’, and are about as stable as shifting sand. Because ‘self’ wants to do what it wants without consequence, hatred of law and order is embraced. The law just gets in the way. Illegal immigration is the same way. Racism is yet another extension of ‘self’. It has hatred for those that are different. The LGBT agenda is all about the unchecked sexual deviance of ‘self’. We could continue, but the point is, the unchecked rise of ‘self’ in our generation, is at the root of what we face today.
The sharp point
Like many others, we observed this, and were deeply troubled. We could only answer for our own choices and not the choices of billions. Our desire was to follow God, just as much as others wanted to follow ‘self’, but we did not realize the depth of our own ‘self’ deception. God had to take us through the wilderness, just to show us what we were like. Only then could we understand what others are like, and what He is now doing about the rampant rise of ‘self’. Our journey of homelessness and wandering was a preparation, and a model, for the life of faith. God is leading His people in this journey of faith all over the world. From this place of owned understanding, we learned valuable battle strategies. Strategies that will counter the rising darkness of ‘self’ and satan.
In one vision on our journey, God showed me the tip of a sword. It was very, very sharp. Over time, we began to understand that we were a sword in the Lord’s hand, and with it He was pricking the ‘self’ nature of those we encountered. It was hard to learn these lessons, but we were trained how to handle these assignments. We have much experience with this process, and understand that God often sharpens His pioneers to a hard point, because they must break through very hard ground. Only the sharpest and hardest of instruments will succeed.
The rise of pioneers
As God began winding down our wilderness training, the world experienced the sudden and unexpected rise of Nigel Farage, Jordan Peterson, Donald Trump and others. God trained these people for many years, to be sharpened into powerful tools fit for the Lord’s purposes. Many do not understand these people. This is often the case with people who live by faith, who challenge the status quo. But as those who have been through the wilderness training, we can testify that these men have been molded specifically for what is coming. For God’s will to be fulfilled on the earth.
These men and women are breaking the hardpan of evil that has covered Earth, in a blanket of black. Their hardened and sharp words of truth and logic, are penetrating the pall of lies satan has tried to seduce and smother people with. Many are waking up to the truth for the first time. Patriots and Christians appreciate this new freedom, but others bitterly oppose the truth. Wanting instead to believe that black is white, and white is black.
These pioneers face tremendous challenges and yet thrive. Instead of weakening, they are getting stronger, because the Lord is behind this change. Evil cannot win against truth, but even still, these people cannot break through the darkness alone. For all the good coming out, and change that is happening, it is not enough to break the grip of satan over vast swaths of territory, and the entrenched ‘self’ in humanity. There is something more that needs to happen, and this is what is coming.
The other day we received a personal prophetic word from a dear sister and friend. In this word she relayed to us we are in a very real and present war. Although it seems like nothing happens in this little motel room, we find ourselves in the heart of a fierce spiritual battle and yet did not realize it. Early one morning, however, God began speaking to me about what is coming, and how He plans to break the power of evil on this planet. There are three distinct pictures that He gave me for understanding, but we can only share two of them with you in this blog.
What God first showed me, was that when breaking through anything hard, you need something sharp. It can be a plow or a spear, but as long as it is sharp, it can penetrate the surface. However, a plow cannot penetrate hardpan just by itself, it needs something more. What that ‘more’ is, we call force. The greater the force behind the plow, the further it can penetrate. Now take a log for instance. I can hit a dry log many times with an axe, and it will still stay solid. What if there were a way to multiply that force, so the sharp point could penetrate the log and split it apart easily with just one blow? Like this.
On June 6, 1944, the world saw many brave men storm the beaches of Normandy, France, to rescue the world from the entrenched evil that had overrun Europe. Those men at the forefront of Operation Overlord, however, would have been pushed back into the sea had not the allies sent many, many more men, weapons and supplies after them to counter the German army. Those valiant warriors were the tip of the spear necessary to gain a foothold but without the fighting forces that came after, they would have failed. You see, the principle is the same, whether it is a plow, a log or a war. If you want to break apart something hard and entrenched, you need two things, a sharp point and a great deal of force behind it. That is what is coming.
Standing up to the enemy
Now do you see now what God is doing? He has already sent His pioneers to break the hardened ground of the established systems of man. There are many others besides Donald, Jordan and Nigel that are calling out the darkness, and facing it head on. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of pioneers walking in faith, as God has led them to confront the rampant abuse of ‘self’. They have been hardened and strengthened to difficulties and stand in faith against the enemy. These precious ones established a beachhead, but now God is about to multiply the force behind them.
God will bring His power into direct confrontation with the forces of darkness covering the earth.
This is your call to arms. This is your time to rise in faith as He leads. Fear not the enemy, for God has already defeated him. Do not fear man, for there is nothing unstable man can do to you to separate you from the Father. You need to stand in this day of evil, and let the force of God move through you, to counter the surrounding enemy. Let His power flow through, to speak the words and follow as He leads. God has already broken the ground before you, with His pioneers. Follow those footsteps in faith, trusting in Jesus to make the way clear. This is His strategy. This is His design. Know that as you go forth, you go with His mighty force behind you. What is coming to destroy ‘self’ is you.

Love every bit of this!
This sentence reminded me of a description I read last night about one of the early church fathers, “Leaning on man is an abomination before a sovereign God, who calls us to trust only in Him.” The quote is “Christ is either Lord of all,
or He is not Lord at all.” May we continue to surrender our wills to our Abba.
Amen Dee, Amen. Blessings to you my dear sister. Standing with you in faith today. 🙂
WOW, this is SO GOOD!!! “God is leading His people in this journey of faith all over the world. From this place of owned understanding, we learned valuable battle strategies. Strategies that will counter the rising darkness of ‘self’ and satan.” I only copied this to stand it out, but I LOVED EVERY SINGLE WORD OF THIS MESSAGE TODAY!!!!!!!
Awesome Shellie! Our Beloved certainly is very good and has things well in hand. Blessings to you my sister!
