“The Devil Is A Liar!”

Thursday, August 30, 2018 posted by Diana Pulliam

During the evening and early morning hours of July 12th, I kept hearing the Lord say:

“The devil is a Liar!”

Before proceeding I need to share a little about what was going on just prior to hearing these words, as I believe many of you may be going through similar situations.

At the time the Lord spoke this to me, I had been in great agony of spirit for almost two weeks.  God had recently called me to go in a direction that took a drastic turn from the path I knew He had placed me on.  My whole being cried out, “NO! Oh, God, please, NO!”  But even as I cried out for it not to be so, I knew it was His will…

Reluctantly, I agreed to go in this new direction, but felt as if my heart had died.  It seemed I was walking away from all the hopes, dreams, and desires that God Himself had placed within my heart.  By this time, I’d begun to wonder if they would ever come to pass.  Then came the questions, “Had I heard God correctly?”, or, “Had I misinterpreted what He told me?”

As days went by, it only got worse.  Obstacles began to present themselves as immovable mountains.  I quickly became overwhelmed, physically and emotionally exhausted.  My cries to God for a word as to why all this was happening were met with silence.  I wasn’t hearing anything from Him.

Not hearing from the Lord, I felt I was losing my bearings.  Confusion and despair began to envelop me, and I felt darkness begin to settle in around me.  Knowing this was an attack from the enemy, I began to cry out all the more to God for help!

The morning I heard the Lord say, “The Devil is a Liar!”, hope began to rise within – even though I was yet to understand what God was specifically referring to.

About a week later the Lord visited me during the night and repeatedly said,

“Come Up Out of Here!”  

I got up the next morning feeling very encouraged.  The Lord had come down to where I was – at the bottom of a pit, and ordered me to rise up out of it!  He rescued me, setting my feet back on solid ground. The darkness receded as He began to shine light upon the situation.

God had begun telling me, “Hold On!” over two months ago.  Although I knew it to be a warning, until recently I’d been given no further details.  Now I hear these words almost daily, and understand it to be a message for the remnant of God; for it will be those who “Hold On” who become the very Bride of Christ!

Message to the Remnant:

Once you’ve submitted your will to the Father, your life will never be the same!  If you’ve given God permission to finish His work in you, permission to remove everything in your life that is not of Him, then buckle up; because this is what is happening – He is answering your prayers!

This is a very hard message, but when Jesus said, “… whoever desires to save his life will lose it..,” He was telling us the truth, meaning exactly what He said.  We must be crucified in Christ, allowing Jesus to live in us.

To live a crucified life is to give up our right to call the shots, to decide which “path” we walk.  The first thing He told me after rescuing me from the pit was, I didn’t have to understand what was going on around me (Isa. 55:8-9).  Dying to self means I am no longer my concern – but His.

As God completes His work in us, the purification process will at times be excruciatingly painful to our flesh.  Most of the time, we will not understand what is happening – or why.  Dying is NOT EASY (see ‘Are You Ready to Die?’).

It’s during these times the enemy will make his move. To make you doubt the Word, all the promises of God – even the very desires the Lord has placed within your heart, the devil will tell you that you must have misunderstood what God said, or maybe you really didn’t hear Him in the first place.  Just as He questioned Adam and Eve, and Jesus Himself, so will he question you!

This tactic is used to distract, disable, and “ground” the most seasoned of Saints.  Once we begin to use human reasoning in an attempt to “figure things out,” we are operating in the flesh.  Our eyes will be diverted away from God, back onto ourselves and this world!

The Lord has shown me a darkness is coming, such as no one can presently comprehend.  The objective of the enemy will be to disorient and confuse the Saints during this time – to take every ounce of hope and expectation away…

Instead of succumbing to human reasoning and the interrogations of the enemy, we must be still while trusting and waiting on the Holy Spirit for direction.  This will require that the Remnant HOLD ON to the things of God, everything the Holy Spirit has taught us!

Brethren, God wants us to be encouraged.  He wants us to understand that when darkness closes in, when we cannot make sense of anything around us, or see a way out, His light will arise and pierce through that darkness for His people!

“Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness…” (Ps 112:4)

He is Faithful, and will come for us – at the bottom of a dark pit if necessary.  As His light pierces the darkness, He will pull us out and set our feet back on solid ground!

We must hold on – for the devil is a liar! It’s the desires of the wicked that shall perish – NOT the desires of the righteous! (Ps 112:10)

Our eyes have not seen, and it has not even entered our heart, the things God has prepared for us (1 Cor. 2:9).  God’s plan for us is BETTER than we have even imagined!

Personal Note:

For lack of space, this article will be continued.  The Lord has made clear His people are not ready for what is coming.

Recently, while speaking with a prophet of the Lord, he said, ‘Diana, God told me while I was praying for you yesterday, “I had to wound her deeply to prepare her for what I have called her to do.”

As soon as he told me what God had said to him, the Holy Spirit confirmed saying,

“You Must Be Crushed!”

I want to let you know, although this will be a very hard message to share, the Lord showed me what transpires when this is accomplished.  What I saw and heard made me scream out in excitement, as tears of joy flowed like a river!

As always, please take this before the Lord for further interpretation and how this may apply to you personally.

    There are just few of us who can put out their personal, even secret life, stories to be a source of spiritual enlightenment. Diana Pulliam uses this blog to report her walk with God. Day to day walk. It applies to every true child of God. I recognize her submission to the daily leading of the Spirit of God and I appreciate and apply the lessons I learn from her here. Nothing guides the lonely true God-seeker better than dreams and visions and revelations. I am alive today because the works of the enemy is graciously revealed before it happens. God is good and very timely [Amos 3:7.]. We have such great advantage and such powerful armory for the Lord’s battle. What would I have done without dreams and revelations? The truth is told here and the light shines brightly and can encourage the heart yielded to God, especially these end times. Glory to God.

  2. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Elijah,
    Thank you for your words of encouragement. Something happened just over a year ago that helped me see the value of being “naked” before Him. We need to be that way with each other in the Body of Christ – no facades. Being open and honest with each other about our walk with the Lord helps others realize they are not the only one going through such things.
    God bless you, dear friend!

  3. Blessing in disguise Says:

    Dear woman,
    I totally understand. I too have had my severe wounding & same questions. The same feeling of being crushed. Thank God that you are honest enough & humble enough & courageous enough to share your experiences with the Lord in this way. It really speaks to my heart & if it wasn’t for people like yourself who are willing to express these things I think many true Christians would be feeling lost in their walk right now too. I know that I would but this is just a light pointing the way & confirmation of what I’ve been going through & hearing. My heart goes out to you as I have felt your pain but it’s also my joy to see you having joy as God lights your way. May you be blessed.
    No one is going to hear this in church!
    May your trumpet blare loudly. People need to hear it.

  4. Diana Pulliam Says:

    I pray the preachers and teachers within the church begin to talk about the transformation process. They need to speak more about the need to be crucified in Christ – preparing their flock for the days ahead! The church I attended years ago actually believed you must be in sin if things weren’t just so-so in your life. They looked upon you with suspicion if you were going through storms and trials, so most kept these things to themselves.
    God bless you, and yes, for the JOY set before us…..

  5. LindaT Says:

    Ive been desperate and afraid I cant take the crushing! Literally afraid I cant stay alive with the personal wounds Ive received this last year, rejection, banishment, mocking. I pray and say I am too weak, I cant take it. I keep thinking I need to get away from the situation. I really dont know the Lords will for me tomorrow or next month. But if I can survive this I guess the Lord is doing something new and wonderful to me.

  6. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Linda,
    I fully understand, as I too have experienced much rejection, banishment, and mocking. And yes, at times it feels like you’re not going to make it, and can barely breathe. But, dear woman, Jesus said, “If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own…but you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” (John 15:19) And He said in Matt. 5:11 for us to REJOICE when men revile us and persecute us, saying all manner of evil against us!

    Linda, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). And it is when we are weak that HE IS STRONG IN US – not us – Him! (2 Cor.12:9-11). Be encouraged, as it sounds like you are right where you need to be. Fasten your eyes on HIM, and stop focusing on the storms around you. Begin to praise Him!
    God bless you, Linda!

  7. Renie Says:

    Diana,

    What has been calling out to me the last few days is “being an instrument of righteousness.” I just read that blog post again because what has been made clear to me is God did that with Jesus and then when Jesus rose from the dead He sent the Holy Spirit. I believe He is asking or showing us our need to allow His righteousness to move through us as Jesus did.

    I further was guided to read “we must take dominion.” That confirmed to me what we are being told. as you warned in that post…“You must take dominion over your mind, over your will, and over your emotions. This is where your enemy has had the advantage over you.”

    “You are no longer just mere men. You have been given power and authority over all the power of the enemy, and now you must choose to walk in it! To do otherwise will be to give your authority and free will over to your enemy.”

    This seems important to me in guiding us through what is to come. We must take a stand and claim the truth of what Jesus accomplished and gave to us through His crucifixion and resurrection.

    Please take this before The Lord for more clarity.

    May God Bless His Body and Strengthen us in His Will for What is to Come.

  8. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Renie,
    AMEN! William wisely reminded me several times this past year to go back and read what God has already given in the previous posts. The two you mention are pivotal, and the Holy Spirit often tells me, “You Must Take Dominion!”

    The next post will touch on some of the points you mention.

    God bless!

  9. Regena Williams Says:

    The enemy wanted you to give up. To feel overwhelmed. He wanted to steal your joy. If he removes joy from the heart he then has an open door.

    Watching every blow from satan (I don’t capitalize the name of our enemy) end in great glory for God is a blessing.

    The seeds sown into my life gave me the eyes that see today. I thank you for that!!!

    Regena

  10. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Regena,
    Exactly! For the joy of the Lord is our strength! We cannot allow it to be stolen by the one God has already warned comes to “steal, kill, and destroy.”

    You mentioned watching the blows of the enemy backfire on him. God is so Good and Faithful. Even as the blows come, sometimes knocking us off our feet, the Lord places those around us who will speak His words of life to us. You were one of those He used – and I thank YOU!

  11. Denny Says:

    I woke up so early this morning and read this on z3 and tears started pouring from these eyes…like it was meant to be read at that very time and place in my own life. This battle, this absolute war going on with the remnant is real and alive in a moment by moment basis. I was needing such confirmation and closure as my marriage became such a battle ground. What it took for me to walk away…words cannot begin to describe the utter agony in spirit I have been facing. This war is real and I needed crutches. There were words in your message that were so meant for me to see, I just spent this morning in awe of how our God reaches down and settles spiritual matters in the physical. Thank you so much. Thank you for being faithful. This morning was a defining moment for me in my walk. You have no idea what this meant to this little guy in Ohio. Life changing.

  12. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Denny,
    First, I want to thank you for your very moving comment. This morning, I am the one crying! This post barely made it through, as I was ready to “shelve” it, not understanding why God would want me to “broadcast” this very painful time. He finally had to take sleep from me to spur me on to finish it. Denny, your email address shouted out to me that my pain truly does have a purpose!
    God bless you!

  13. Sue Says:

    Thank you also Diana for all that your conveying to us from the Lord. You and those in this post are about the only one encouraging me..I feel so alone and shut out, no one wants to hear anything because it’s too negative and from loved ones shutting you out it hurts. I left my church because of the face’s people put on but outside of church no one has even noticed your missing..only hearing from them in church..lol! not wanting to hear The warnings, they say they are from enemy..ugh! The point I’m getting at is same things happening in this neck of woods. I get confirmations but the Lord is on quiet side. Finish me oh Lord and Father God help us your children thru these trials..yes I feel down watching those around me. I pray Lord send someone for me here where I live in the Northeast. I thank God for your honesty and words. I went to another church i felt i received confirmation for but think they are moving and no one reached out in calls. Called about bible study but no one was there wed…just feeling lost and alone but God’s word is truth so hanging on to His word like it’s a rope. I praise Him for has He failed us yet, he hasn’t me. I feel he wants me at my sister’s house for reason but I been wanting to run..just confessing. I keep too much to myself. Only way to be free is confessing. I’m a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God thru Jesus as sins flee away. It is a painful process. To myself thru out moments here and there O would say He’s a liar..that enemy. Your words speak columns to me. May Christ peace be with you and you all. God Bless
    Please i ask for prayers for healing so I can absorb God’s word and for it to stay with me. I read and hear on daily basis. Thankyou!

  14. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Sue,
    I echo your prayer for God to “finish His work”in us! It must be done for us to walk in the FULLNESS of Jesus on the earth. Jesus has already won the victory for us, but we must not only stand in His victory – but the Lord told me “You Must Take Dominion!”

    Take a look at Renie’s comment and the two posts she recommends reading: “You Must Take Dominion!” and “You Will Be My Instruments of Righteousness!” This is all tied together and gives a glimpse of what our Lord has in store for His Bride.

    Let’s Hold On, Sue! Just as, for the JOY set before Him, our Bridegroom endured the cross – SO WILL WE! Praise God!!!
    Blessings to you, Sue!

  15. Michele Sperber Says:

    Thank you Diana for your transparency and for this word of life for the body of Christ. Colossians 1:22 came to my mind after reading it: “Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body sake, which is the church.”

  16. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Michele,
    I know you are fully acquainted with the sufferings of Christ, my dear friend. As I just told someone else, for the joy set before us…
    God bless you, Michele!

  17. Michele Sperber Says:

    Hi Sue,
    I read your post #13 earlier today and felt I had to cone back to share something that I hope will be helpful to you. Like you and probably most Christians I was taught and believed that we are sinners saved by grace. But what does the scriptures say? -“ I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ….” Is there sin in Chrust? Paul says that sin is in our fkesh, but that is not who we ARE! The word of God declares that we are the righteousness of God. This contradicts the teaching that we ARE sinners. The truth is that we WERE sinners saved by grace. There’s a huge difference between what we were in the past and what we are now. I’ve known the Lord for 49 years, but it was about five years or so that I had the revelation that when our Lord died, we died with Him. Knowing this… knowing our TRUE identity in Christ… a NEW CREATURE (no longer I but Christ living by the faith of the son of God Who died for me” makes all the difference in our having a victorious life.

    God bless you Sue- I encourage you to ask for this revelation.
    ❤️Michele

  18. Robert Says:

    Hi again…yup I’m still hangin up there…cant wait for this part 2 b over already! I can’t even barely function or see how God will ever restore my life after this! Thanks for sharing your experience…I’m all alone isolated and hedged…feel worthless and foreign to others…nevertheless praise God for His goodness and wonderful works to the children of men!

  19. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Robert,
    I know what the kind of loneliness you’re describing feels like. God desires us to cry out to Him during such times, so He can show Himself strong on our behalf, to show us His Word is true – that He will never leave us nor forsake us! I am praying for you right now! HOLD ON! God will shine His Light into this darkness and pull you up out of it, setting your feet back on solid ground. Please stay in touch!

  20. Frank Dollbaum Says:

    Diana and brothers and sisters in Christ,
    The key message here and much of what Diana has shared over the past year or so is that the flesh has to GO! We can’t get so caught up in what the devil is doing. Satan is a tool the LORD uses to refine us. WE have AUTHORITY over the devil and his works because JESUS CHRIST is in us! The point of the training is to submit the flesh, focus on and trust in our Father for everything and all of the wonderful and amazing promises in the Bible are ours! When an “attack” comes on just look at it as a training tool because when the refining is over you will have more intimacy with the LORD! As you learn this, the process moves faster and faster each time. Then when you begin to walk in AUTHORITY over the enemy and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT you become an instrument of righteousness and a sharp arrow in the LORD’s quiver (Isaiah 49:2). ALL things meant for our harm, GOD uses for our good. It’s that simple! Once you understand this your walk becomes incredible in closeness to the LORD and you become that instrument of righteousness because you are no longer bound by the devil’s lies!

    Look at Zechariah 4:6-7. Replace the mountain with the obstacle in your life or the devil and know God is going to turn that mountain into a plain for you! Romans 16:20! The devil is our door mat! Hallelujah!

    Also Isaiah 61:1-3, become like JESUS, become a powerhouse for GOD knowing that what seems to be for harm is for good! Praise HIM!

    We need to get Joshua 1:9 and Mark 16:15-20 down deep in our soul and believe that GOD intended us to be like JESUS and we can be and should be! Spend alone time with our FATHER. Pray and fast and seek HIS face. Remember the 1st and greatest commandment is to LOVE the LORD your GOD with everything you have and the 2nd is LOVE your neighbor as yourself (Matt 22:37-40), and seek first the kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness and HE will add ALL things to you (Matt 6:33)! FOCUS on GOD and it will change your perspective and know that HE will take care of the rest! Blessings to everybody!

  21. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Frank,
    Praise God, you’ve summed it up beautifully! Once we obey the voice of the Lord to TAKE DOMINION, the devil is indeed our doormat. From then on, every single thing the enemy tries to bring against God’s anointed is only used for the ultimate good, and just like Haman, what he intended as harm comes back upon his own head.

    God bless you, Frank!

  22. Frank Dollbaum Says:

    And when you feel lonely and isolated read PSALM 139! God bless you!

  23. Robert Says:

    Thanks so much Diana and Frank! I totally agree! I have victory in Jesus and what the enemy meant for harm the lord will use for the saving of many lives!!! Hallelujah!

  24. cathryn gutierrez Says:

    I am on the opposite side of the spectrum. I have been experiencing an increase in Victory over the enemy and more peace and joy than I have ever had. I felt a definite shift at the first of the year that I can’t explain. Sure I still get attacked but they are more like flicking a pesky fly as I immediately react without even thinking. I also recover much quicker after an attack than I use to. But since so many of my brothers and sister’s warfare has increased I started to feel uneasy about that too. Am I still a threat to the enemy? Is my training less because my mission isn’t as vital? HHHMMM…That kind of thinking stinks too!

  25. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Cathryn,
    I’m so glad you have asked this! There should be a progression in our training, where the things that used to send us into a tail spin, we hardly even notice. There is a saying, “New level, new devil.” When the pesky little imps are no longer of any effect, rest assured the more powerful, higher level ones, will be sent. As you progress as a warrior in the army of God, you become more of a threat to the kingdom of darkness.

    God gave me a vision a few years ago of me in the hand of a huge statue (Similar to Statute of Liberty). The winds were blowing hard and kept knocking me off my feet. But each time I stood up, it took more to make me fall. After just a few moments, I realized the hand I was in was God’s. Even when I fell, I was still in His Hand! As the storm blowing against me grew stronger, so did I – standing longer each time, until finally NOTHING could knock me off my feet – I stood in VICTORY!

    To answer your question, whether you should be concerned, I would say no. Keep seeking and pressing in to Him, whether you’re on top of a mountain – or down in the valley, and the peace and joy of the Lord will only increase – no matter what is going on around you. God always brings us up out of the valley, placing us on the mountain top for periods of time. He refreshes and prepares us to go through the next valley. I love the mountaintop times, and believe He is bringing us to the point of being able to travel through the valleys with the same ease, peace, and joy!
    God bless!

    Hi Diana, God has taught me many things through your prophetic words. There is a lot of suffering that we must go through in this life for our good. God has been allowing Satan, to sift me like wheat, lately, for my good. The Lord asked me to start fasting one day a week, a few years ago. What the Lord asks me to do, He gives me the ability to do. It may not be easy sometimes, but when I rely on Him to help me to do it, I find His help to do it. God has directed me, to listen to a lot of prophets on the Internet, who speak of severe judgment coming for the wicked in the future. God has also spoken to me personally, about severe judgments coming for the wicked in the future, also. In a vision I had, I asked Jesus what does the future look like, and He said to me, economic collapse, famine, rioting, apostasy, and World War III. I believe that God is trying to prepare His saints, through putting them through difficult experiences now, to try to toughen them up, so that they can be able to handle tougher times later. We have to believe that the Job, type, bridal, trial, times, that we are now experiencing, are something good that God is trying to do for us now, instead of something harmful. God is trying to teach us, how to stop trusting in our ability, and start trusting in His ability, through these difficulties. God is wanting to use His prepared servants, to be able to operate in His power in the future, like the church in the book of Acts did, if they are willing to allow Him to teach them how to walk in His power, instead of their own power, through going through His difficult training experiences, for them, now. I believe that the people who display the most suffering love for God, and for others, will get the greatest rewards in Heaven for it, after they die. I love what God is doing through people like, joyful, Joni Eareckson Tada, in a wheel chair. I love what God was doing through His suffering servants in the Bible, like Abraham, and Job, and Joseph, and Lazarus the beggar, and Jesus. Jesus needs to powerfully test our love for Him now, if He wants to make us leaders in His church, in our future. Jesus needs to powerfully test our love for Him here on Earth, if He is going to choose to marry us forever, after we leave this Earth. Peter wouldn’t have been the kind of church leader that he was in his future, unless Jesus allowed him to be sifted like wheat by Satan, in his past. Peter wouldn’t be the kind of leader, that he is in God’s Kingdom now, after his death, without going through God’s suffering tests for him, at the hand of Satan, while he lived on the Earth. Jesus gets the greatest suffering love award, and the highest position in God’s Kingdom now, because He displayed the most suffering love for God and others, while He lived here on the Earth. May we seek to follow His loving, and suffering, example, while we live here on Earth now, and get great rewards for choosing to do so, after we die, like He did. May God bless your, loving, suffering, ministry work, for Him.

    Jesus said, Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers. Luke 22:31,32

    Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces. perseverance. Let perseverance finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

    Paul said, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

    Paul said, it is no longer I who live, it is Christ, who now lives in me. Galatians 2:20

    I made a video, trying to explain more about these, difficult, preparation of the bride of Christ, times, happening to us now. Here is the link to it, if you want to check it out,

    God’s Help To Develop Suffering Love For Him

  27. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Rod,
    Yes, we are of no use to the Kingdom of God until we are emptied of ourselves and filled with Him. I was reading Lamentations yesterday, and chapter 3 sums up what most of the prophets of God went through and felt like at times. It doesn’t matter what God is calling one to do, if you accept His calling on your life – it is no longer your own. But He has something far greater in store for us than this earth.

    Thank you so much for the link, I will check it out!
    Blessings to you, Rod!

  28. Rod Says:

    Diana, God led me to read, Lamentations chapter 3. Jeremiah had to witness the wrath of God, falling up on His rebellious people. Something that we might have to start to see, in our future, also. I believe that God is trying to train us through suffering experiences now, sort of like a Jeremiah, or a Job type experience, to try to better equip us, to be able to handle, greater sufferings, coming for us to experience, in our future. Jeremiah, and Job, lost their ability to control their comfortable lives. I believe that God is trying to teach His saints, how to trust in Him more, through putting them through more, suffering circumstances, now. God is not trying to harm us, by doing this, He’s trying to help us through doing this. It’s like the ones that God wants to use the most in the future, on Earth, or in Heaven, have to go through more of His, suffering, love, training, first. Those who God wants to use the most, go through the most. In the future when we start to see God’s wrath come upon the wicked, we will need a greater ability, to be able too, receive His help to handle, these greater sufferings coming, in our future. If God doesn’t try to train us through going through suffering trials now, we won’t be able to handle, the greater suffering trials, coming for us in our future. God is trying to toughen us up now, for tougher times later. God is allowing Satan, to greatly tempt us now, to doubt in God’s help in suffering, and to worry about our ability to handle, the greater sufferings, coming for us in our future, now. God is trying to put us through, an extensive, spiritual warfare, training course, now, so that we can learn to defeat the devil in our sufferings now, and also be able to defeat him later, in the greater sufferings, coming upon the land, then. The good news is, if we want to choose to trust in God, and draw close to Him, during our sufferings, we can experience perfect peace of mind, and a fullness of joy, through them. Satan tries to disturb our peace, and our joy from God, through trying to get us to believe in lies about, our good God, during our sufferings. God is trying to develop a stronger faith in Him, during our sufferings now, which will be able to help us to better handle, the greater sufferings coming for us, in our future. Can we learn to rejoice in the Lord always, even during our sufferings, instead of just when we are experiencing pleasurable experiences. God doesn’t want us, apostatizing with Satan, when His wrath for the wicked, increases in the future. It is a loving, and caring act of God to seek to put us through, sifting like wheat, Job, type, experiences with Satan, now, and help us to overcome them, so that we will be able to continue to overcome Satan’s, greater attacks on us, in our future. We were born into a spiritual war, and God is trying to teach us how to win it, if we want Him too, and the consequences, for choosing not to want to learn how to do this from God, will bring destruction upon us, on the Earth, or in Hell, after we die. If we could understand, the greater suffering consequences of not learning to win our war against Satan, through going through, suffering circumstances now, then we would be able to more joyfully embrace, Satan’s attacks upon us, and our increasing sufferings through them, now. We have to fight off Satan trying to get us to believe his lie, that God can’t be good, if we are suffering. We need to learn to embrace God’s faith building, through suffering circumstances, as something good for us, to go through now, because of the stronger faith, which they build in us now, which will be crucially important, for us to have, to help to sustain us, in our future, suffering circumstances. May we begin to understand, how important, our faith building experiences, through our sufferings now, should be to us. May we hear God say to us, I love your suffering love for Me, keep up the good, suffering, loving, work. May we feel God’s, peace, and love, and joy, and comfort, filling us, and sustaining us, through all of our sufferings. When we seek to let Jesus do it through us, instead of us trying to do it, through us, then, we start to be able to defeat Satan, and successfully deal with suffering in our lives. If we choose to let God teach us His truth to believe in, and choose to use it against Satan’s lies, then we will be able to start to defeat Satan, and successfully deal, with our sufferings, with God’s help too. God is trying to teach us how to be more than a conqueror, with Him, but we have to want to choose to let Him teach us how to be.

    May God continue to reveal His truth to you, through, His word, and His dreams, and His visions. May God teach others, great things, through you, in your future, ministry, work, for Him. This is what I pray, to our perfect, Father, God, to do for you, in the name of His, Beloved, Son, Jesus, my perfect, Husband, and King.

    God delights in the prayers of the righteous. Proverbs 15:8

    For your Maker is your Husband, the Lord Almighty is His name. Isaiah 54:5

    Jesus learned obedience to God, through the things which He suffered. Hebrews 5:8

    Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word. Psalm 119:67

    Why should the living complain when punished for their sins? Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Jeremiah 3:39,40

    I called on your name, Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea, do not close your ears to my cry for relief. You came near when I called you, and you said, do not fear. You, Lord, took up my case, you redeemed my life. Jeremiah 3:55-58

    There is nothing too difficult for God to do for us. Jeremiah 32:27

    Though God allow me to experience great suffering, yet will I trust in Him. Job 13:15

    Jesus said, I am always with you. Matthew 28:20

    God has said, I will never leave, or forsake you. So we can say with confidence, the Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. Hebrews 13:5,6

    God is our refuge, and strength, our very present help, in our times of trouble. Psalm 46:1

    In God’s presence, is our fullness of joy. Psalm 16:11

    God will keep us, in perfect, peace of mind, if we will trust in Him. Isaiah 26:3

    My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. James 1:2-4 (The Passion Translation)

    Rod,

    This is the truth of the matter, and many would say, just as they said to Jesus, “This is a hard saying!”

    You will not hear these things spoken from the pulpit in the “church” today. Thank you, Rod!
    And the words to the song are awesome!

    Diana,
    Hi and thanks for this posting! There are some in the church who would like to take Jesus off the cross because it doesn’t make them comfortable. They don’t understand that the resurrection power of Jesus came after His death on the cross and that we must Follow Him. Many in church now say He completed the works of the cross for our salvation so let’s take Him off of there. They don’t understand the beauty of coredemptrix and joining your sufferings with those of Christ on the cross for the salvation of souls. As we lay down our life with Him on the cross, we take it up again in His power and glory. The Lord has revealed to many of the upcoming judgments but it is a hard word and not many will keep it. God saved us on the cross therefore there is no condemnation in Christ, etc…but we have sins of omission on us collectively as a country as well as sins of commission. So judgment will come but God in His grace and Mercy is slow to wrath and long suffering and will give signs to help prepare us! As for me I would love your prayers so that I continue to walk and obey the voice of the Lord and rise up in His glory to display the works of God in those dark times. 🙏

    Amen, Maria! You are in my prayers! May God give you eyes to see and ears to hear even the faintest whispers of the Holy Spirit in the days ahead. And may your life bring great glory and honor to Him!
    Blessings!
