THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST. Posted 110720 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word from the Father. He is saying: THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST. It is written in Matthew 20.16: So the last shall be first, and the first last; for many be called, but few chosen.
Beloved, you’ve got to fight against the spirits of fear, doubt, worry, stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, insomnia, unbelief, and discouragement. Without boldness and courage, you will not be able to walk in your destiny, which is why the enemy is using discouragement to hinder your destiny. Unless the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waiteth in vain. You must stop listening to the lying spirits, Jezebel’s Eunuchs, who are spewing vanity, deception, and every evil work. If it had not been the Lord who was on your side, when men rose up against you, then they would have swallowed you up quick, when their wrath was kindled against you; then the waters would have overwlelmed you, the stream would have gone over your soul; the proud waters would have gone over your soul. But it was the Lord who had not given you as a prey to their teeth, so your soul escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare was broken, and you escaped. Your help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He is the same God yesterday, today and forever.
The Father is saying: THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST. He that dwelleth in My secret place shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I am your refuge and fortress, your God. I shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. I shall cover thee with My feathers and under My wings shalt thou trust; My truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day, nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked, because thou hast made Me your refuge and your habitation, there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For I shall give My angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands lesst thou dast thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because you have set your love upon Me, therefore I will deliver you, I will set you on high because you have known My name. You shall call upon Me and I will answer you. I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you, and with long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee, yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. Be not weary in well doing, for in due season ye shall reap, if ye faint not. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto Me. For I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Submit yourselves therefore unto Me, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Turn ye to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Me, for I have chosen him to be a soldier. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you; thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Trust in Me with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Me and I shall direct thy paths. My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Cast all your care upon Me, for I care for you. In the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Likewise, the Spirit also helpeth your infirmities, for ye know not what ye should pray as ye ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for you with groanings which cannot be uttered. If I be for you, who can be against you? Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of your Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. Be of good courage and I shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in Me. For your light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while ye look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. For it is I that goeth before thee, I will be with thee, I will not fail thee nor forsake thee; fear not, neither be dismayed. For ye are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, so lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset thee, and run with patience the race that is set before you. For the thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I came that ye might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Without faith it is impossible to please Me, for he that cometh to Me must believe that I am, and that I am a rewarder of them that diligently seek Me.
They that wait upon Me shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. Ye can do all things through Christ which strengthenest thee. Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto Me, and My peace shall guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. I shall gird thee with strength and make your way perfect, for it is I who worketh in you both to will and to do of My good pleasure. Foe ye have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of your infirmities; but was in all points tempted as ye are, yet without sin. Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen; I will be exalted in the earth. I shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace.
Remember how My children murmured and complained in the wilderness, though I rained down manna, angels food, from heaven. Do all things without murmurings and disputings; that ye may be blameless and harmless, My sons, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life; that ye may rejoice in the day of Christ, that ye have not run in vain, neither labored in vain. Grudge not one against another, lest ye be condemned; behold, the Judge standeth before the door. Earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning My grace into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, your Lord Jesus Christ. Remember how after saving My people out of the land of Egypt, I afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, I have reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. These filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. For behold I am coming, with ten thousands of My saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Me. These are murmerers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration, because of advantage. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, build up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in My love, looking for the mercy of your Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference, and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
