The Litmus Test

Living Water

On June 18th, I was in the middle of replying to a comment on a website, when the Holy Spirit spoke to me in an audible inner voice.

A sister in Christ had asked, “Diana, I was saying to my cousin this past week, I’m noticing Christians becoming divided like I’ve never seen before. How in the world can we be a witness to the unbeliever when we as Christians are not getting along with one another? If I were a new Christian, this would be a big turn off.”

As I was responding to her question, the Lord said,Love is the Litmus test.” I was then given a string of scriptures, and shown various scenarios, as the Lord began to reveal the magnitude of those words.

“By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another” John 13:35.

Love is THE identifier, the ID badge of a Christian. This will be the witness to the unbeliever – if we have love one to another. Yes, the church is being “divided.” And yes, a lot of people are becoming offended and “turned off.” The Lord has shown me, the division is necessary, but Love is the Litmus test which will clearly identify to all men who the disciples of Jesus really are. All the strife and division shouldn’t be a surprise, because Jesus warned us it would be this way.

The Message of Jesus is Divisive

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I am not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.” (Matthew 10:34-35)

The Word says, ALL unbelievers have been blinded by the devil (2 Cor. 4:4), which includes our unbelieving loved ones. As darkness descends, the division will increase all the more, and the Light of the Glorious Gospel will shine even brighter. The Saints shouldn’t fear this process, but welcome it, as it’s time for the wheat to be separated from the chaff (Matt.3:12).

 Harvest Time

In His mercy, the Lord will once more shake the heavens and the earth. “What is shakable will be shaken so that what is unshakable will remain.” (Hebrew 12:27)   As the facade of this world crumbles and falls, many will awaken out of slumber.

The greatest harvest in history is at hand, and the Lord is calling forth His harvesters. Jesus spoke of the harvest being great, but laborers few. He told us to pray the Lord send out workers into his harvest field (Luke 10:2).

These workers will be sent out in the midst of the greatest calamities ever to hit our planet. For lack of space, I won’t address the Glory these harvesters will need to walk in. But scripture indicates a large portion of the Church will not be ready to receive and walk in this Glory. The Lord admonishes us to be ready.

LOVE Poured Out

The Lord recently revealed to me, in our current state, we’ll be useless to Him in the coming harvest. What’s coming is so horrific, that without a miraculous, total transformation and indwelling of the Holy Spirit, not one Christian will be ready for this assignment!

We must be totally transformed into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ.

Recently, my pastor was talking about how after Solomon built the temple, he wanted to dedicate it to God. As soon as the sacrifice was laid on the altar, and songs of praise filled the air, the fire of the Lord came down and consumed the sacrifice, and the Glory of the Lord filled the Temple.

The sacrifice couldn’t be inferior, maimed or defective in any way. If it wasn’t “perfect” according to God’s instructions, the fire wouldn’t fall, just as what happened between Elijah and the priests of Baal.

He said, “When we as an individual, or as a Church, come to the altar and present that perfect sacrifice, rest assured – the Glory will again fill the Temple.” As he said this, I heard the Spirit say, “Love poured out!” I then saw a vision of myself approaching the altar and bowing down. At that moment I knew, I was the sacrifice the Lord was waiting for.

Please don’t misunderstand. Jesus was THE perfect sacrifice, and with His blood, He paid for our sins once and for all. But the Church is His Body on the earth. Jesus demonstrated what Love in action looks like, so we may follow in His footsteps. We are to be imitators of Christ.

“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17)

Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)

“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” (1 John 3:16)

Paul said, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…” (Galatians 2:20)   “…I die daily.” (1 Cor. 15:31).

Paul described the process as “…being poured out like a drink offering…”

Saints, we must die to this world. The Holy Spirit told me, “Let go of this earth and cleave unto Me.” Cast all your cares and concerns on Him – let it all go! Ask the Lord daily to give you His heart, to fill you to overflowing with His LOVE. God is LOVE, and we need Him to totally indwell us in order to be Love Poured Out!

Each one of us comprise the Temple of God on the earth. We must go to the altar, or prayer closet, get down on our knees and pour out our life to Him as a sacrificial offering. Nothing less will do.

The Lord is saying,

It’s time for the dedication of My Temple. Bring your sacrifices unto Me. Let the songs of praise begin. I will again fill My Temple with My Glory!

ToHimBTheGlory!

    We must give ourselves to GOD. WE should pour out ourselves to God. And love a lot with each others. Because Love is the second name of Christinaty…… Amen

    Fiaz,
    Yes, “He that saves his life will lose it. But he who loses his life for my sake, the same shall find it.” Luke 9:24. And as Jesus said in Matthew 22:36-40, “Thou shall love the Lord your God with all you heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, thou shall love thy neighbor as yourself.”

    God bless you!

  3. Bishop Mwandha Michael Says:

    Yes , you are very right and the spirit of God has told you the real word which is happening everywhere. Love is power of Unity, and Unity is progress in life. Without the people around you, there is nothing you can harvest in this world . Jesus made his church to be the center of unity, and Love strengthens the foundation of our faith in Him .
    So , when people began to treat the church as a foundation / organization with its leadership structure , they forget the main value of the church . Let us allow ourselves to be built into his church in the name of his kingdom, not ours, with his leadership, not ours; with his services, not ours. Then unity will cause many to come to christ as they is the nature of love in us.
    God bless you.
    Michael.

    Michael,
    So very true! When we allow our personal lives, as well as our Churches, to be lead by the Holy Spirit, then the purposes of God can be accomplished in this world.

    God bless you!

    Diana, a part that struck me was about Solomon’s Temple… the Body of Christ so needs a ‘shake-up to wake-up’. I am praying to pass the ‘litmus’ test when the time comes. The Lord is faithful and I lean on Him daily – and having conversations in the early, dark hours is becoming more frequent. My heart can become so burdened thinking about these things coming, that there is no sign of repentance and the ‘unknown’ of how we will be affected… but it’s a blessing on the other side knowing I’m called to be a Watchman and have an understanding of these crazy things!!
    So glad I came across your blog after hearing you on Lyn Leahz’ video!

    ***
    Dec. 11, Pastor J.D. Farag of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe gave this message in his Prophecy Update where he addresses the significance of the Israeli strikes targeting the city of Damascus prophetically, and shares THREE main reasons people are unaware – either because they are oblivious or they don’t care – of its seriousness geo-politically… what’s around the corner.

    The part that really hits home… Read 2 Chronicles 7:11-14 — God WARNS Solomon DURING the Celebration of the Temple, that WHEN the blessings CEASE…. NOT IF… But WHEN judgment comes… Then… IF my people humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways (a national and individual REPENTANCE)… THEN God will hear, and forgive, and heal …

    This is where we need to HEED the warnings of judgement!!
    But are we?? Right where we are prideful and full of ourselves…

    Rhonda,
    Thank you for stopping by this site. It’s so exciting to come across people like yourself, who are in such close relationship with our Lord. Yes, I too commune with Him in those early, dark hours… the most thrilling part of my day.

    Appreciate the link. God bless you, Rhonda!

    Spephanie,

    It sounds like your family is being attacked severely. Just remember, “He that lives within you is mightier than he that is in the world.” You need to take your eyes off all that’s going on around you, and focus them straight ahead on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your Faith. Get alone with Him, immerse yourself in His Presence. It’s time to dwell only in the secret place of the Most High, and abide under the Shadow of the Almighty!

    Stephanie, before you start your day, make sure you put on the whole armor of God. Get more and more of the Word, and let it sink down into your heart, and be totally transformed by the renewing of your mind. Be still in His Presence, and listen for His instructions for you day by day, minute by minute. He will show you the way, my Sister. I pray for you and your family, and in the authority of Jesus Christ, we plead the Blood of Jesus over your family. All the schemes of the enemy are thwarted and canceled out NOW is his mighty Name. I pray peace and blessings over you in Jesus name, AMEN!

    THE LION, MAN AND BEARS -DREAM

    I want you to know that I do not have an interpretation for this dream. I thought I would tell it anyways because I believe it is from the Lord. Maybe someone out there of Godly mind does. Here is my dream in entirety.
    August 29th 2015-

    Last night I had a very scary dream. So much so that I had to wake myself up because I didn’t want to see anymore.

    A man was out side my house he was dressed in a tan trench coat and a hat (I thought, how odd nobody wears hats anymore. Who could this be?). A man in a misty bright white light was standing on a hill behind the well dressed man with the hat not far away.

    The man in the trench coat was approaching an very large lion. I was coming out of my house and suddenly saw the lion and our eyes met. The lion stared at me with deep dislike. I could feel his anger or dislike on me. He bore his teeth (a sign of he was serious) and I was petrified, my heart racing. I stopped as soon as I saw the lion and the man in the misty white light cautioned me to back up slowly and go back into my house. My steps deliberate, taking the advice I obeyed the the man in the bright mist and backed slowly and carefully knowing if I made a sudden move the lion would attack me.

    The man in the trench coat and hat was trying to get close to the lion. He was being careless, speaking loudly, Saying, “hey, look at this lion! ” “Look how big he is!” Like the lion was in a circus and or caged but he was loose. The man had no respect of its power.

    The lion grabbed the man in the middle of his waist and threw him to the ground. The man speaking as if it were still fun and games then all the sudden the mans voice changed his countenance feeble and he realized he was in trouble and in fear started to scream for help but it was too late. The lion violently broke the mans neck (the crunch horrifying! I was instantly sick over it). Then suddenly a brown bear came on the scene and started to bat and bite or maul the man around and as fast as the brown bear came on the he disappeared and turned into a polar bear continuing to maul the dead man.

    At this point my heart couldn’t take it anymore and I fought to wake myself up. I asked the Lord to wake me up. If there was an interpretation I didn’t wait for it because I was so distraught and frightened.

    I am truly sorry I didn’t wait for the interpretation.

    That’s it, I hope someone can tell me about this I kind of have an idea but not totally sure.

    I had many dreams in 2015

    Blessings my friend,

    Tornado and confusion

    In my dream I saw a friend of mine who is a photographer she was standing on a hill looking over a huge wheat field. She had binoculars and was watching a cloud formation. She turned to me and said, ‘I think it looks like a tornado’. As we turned it became bigger and turned into a strong tornado. The strange thing about it was it was split in two. From the ground in the wheat field the wind began forming the bottom half of the tornado and at the same time an upper formation started. I thought they were going to meet in the middle but I did not see that happen.

    I was scared and abandoned my friend and ran down a hill into a valley but there was fog and I couldn’t see anything. I thought I can not make it by myself I need my friend, so I ran up the hill got my friend and we got in a car. She was driving as I took the drivers wheel from the passenger side I urged her to take a picture. I kept saying that throughout the dream ‘Take a picture’ because I have never seen that before. I had never seen a tornado in my town before. It was so unusual. A landmark for our smalltown. The wind was getting stronger and more intense and the car began swerving.
    From my peripheral vision I saw a car. It came past us at a very fast speed pushed by high winds. As I looked intently at the car, as in slow motion. I saw it was full of teens maybe in the age of 15-19 because one boy was wearing a letterman’s jacket. The kids were dead and mangled. A boy was being dragged under the car. The car had no glass and the metal was bent as if it were thrown around and smashed by the tornado.

    I think it means this, at least part of it.

    I know the wheat represents Christians or believers. The tornado represents, according to one bible scholar, a nation.

    In my dream the nation aka tornado was split in two. So our Christian nation will be spilt in two. There will be violence maybe even death and confusion.
    We need to run back as Christians from being in the valley (the fog) and go to the mountain top where Jesus calls us and remember (like a picture helps us remember) that he is our refuge and strength.

    I keep thinking it has something to do with the elections and how in the news we are so divided as a nation.

    Jenny,

    Wow, it appears you’ve been shown some of the horrific things just ahead of us. Darkness is covering the earth. But remember, the darker it gets, the more the Light of God is seen. It shines brighter and brighter.

    I will pray the Lord give you interpretation, and show you specifically what you need to know.

    Seek Him with all your being. I highly recommend you commit Psalms 91 to memory.

    God bless!
