“She Will Rise from the Dead!”

Friday, September 21, 2018 posted by Diana Pulliam

This article is a continuation of ‘The Devil Is A Liar!’ If you have not read, I recommend doing so before continuing.  As previously stated, this is a message to the Remnant:

The Lord has made clear His people are not ready for the coming darkness. We cry out, begging Him to finish His work in us – to transform us into His likeness.  We ask the Lord to remove everything from us not of Him, anything that does not give Him Glory.  We so desire to be used by Him in the days ahead…  But do we really know what we are asking?

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 was also shown the following vision:

There was a huge wine press, like those used in the days of the Old Testament.  Grapes were being trampled upon and crushed.  I watched as the contents of the grapes spewed forth and began flowing like a river down a long trough.

(End of Vision)

I was prompted to ask the following:

 Lord, what are You preparing us to do that we must be so deeply wounded? Why must we be crushed?

God then began to emphasis to me how much instruction has been given the followers of Jesus.  In the New Testament alone, in passages too numerous to list (see below for a few), we are told, to be a follower of Jesus Christ, we must first die to self!

Jesus said, “Whoever wants to save his life shall lose it…” (John 12:24).

Jesus also said that before a harvest can be produced, a seed must first die and fall to the ground.

Can we, as Paul, say we are ready, and actually rejoice, to be poured out as a drink offering?  Most of us can quote scripture after scripture about dying to self.  And most would join in saying a big “Amen” to the need of being emptied before we are able to be filled with Him…  But the truth is, we have not been living this out in our lives.

God is saying His people are not ready for the coming darkness, because WE HAVE NOT YET DIED TO SELF!  We have not yet submitted our will to the will of the Father!  As soon as uncomfortable circumstances, or “mountains,” appear, we begin to panic and scream out like the “babes” in Christ we truly are.  Brethren, this is when the enemy moves in…

THE DEVIL WILL DO ALL HE CAN TO STOP YOU FROM DYING TO SELF!

Jesus is the “Second Adam,” and His Bride the second Eve.  Just as the devil came at Eve to cause doubt regarding God’s instructions, so will he interrogate and question the Bride: “Are you sure you heard God correctly?”  “Surely God would not allow this to happen – has God left you?”

Praise God, we have the example of our Lord and Savior!   Jesus asked His Father, if He was willing, to remove the cup from him.  But He immediately followed with, “Nevertheless, not My will but Yours be done.”  As His flesh cried out to live, He turned it over to be crucified!

The Word says, “As He is, so are we in this earth.”  (1 John 4:17)

A few days prior to posting ‘The Devil is a Liar,’ the Lord gave me a vision and word that I will share a glimpse of here:

I saw myself laying at the bottom of the pit mentioned in the previous post. It was so dark I could barely see, but I appeared to be dead. Suddenly, a bright light appeared. 

The next thing I saw was myself emerging from the pit.  I was in a white flowing garment that went almost to the ground.  Light was all around me.  As I watched, I heard the Lord say,

“She Will Rise from the Dead!”

(End of vision)

Interpretation:

Saints, Jesus will not be unequally yoked!  His Bride must become like Him to be united with Him.

We must be crushed!  Just as the contents of the grape pours forth, so must we be emptied of self.  Only then may we be filled with Him and used as instruments of His Righteousness!

As Jesus said so long ago, so will His Bride be able to say, “The prince of this world…has nothing in me.”

God is preparing us for burial – the burial of self, the burial of our will.  I was shown it will be as death!  Although it’s happening on an individual basis now, it will be on a grand “corporate” basis at some point in the future.

The fact the Bride is “resurrected” and comes out of a dark pit parallels her Bridegroom being in the grave three days and three nights.  This confirmed to me the three days of darkness prior to the Bride rising to walk in the Fullness of His Glory.

Brethren, God wants our hearts to be encouraged as darkness encroaches.

He wants us to remember that, for the joy sat before Him, Jesus endured the cross – and so will His Bride!

“She Will Rise from the Dead!”

 Personal Note:

I was so shaken on the one hand, and thrilled on the other, at seeing our “death” and resurrection, that I couldn’t fathom there being anything more to be said. So, I asked God, “Does this end the assignment given me to write what You show me?  Will there be no more writing?”  He said,

“She must be prepared to reign and rule with her Bridegroom!”

Please take all that has been presented here before the Lord for further interpretation and how this may apply to you personally.

    Great article, it so true we must truly die to self, again like u said do we know what we are asking plus have we convinced ourselves we did when we hadn’t truly yet die. I feel like I definitely going through this process so my prayer is to truly died that I may please ,thanks for great insight on this

  2. Diana Pulliam Says:

    David,
    Paul said he died daily (1 Cor. 15:31). We are continually presented with situations where we have to make a choice; do we allow ourselves to be poured out like a drink offering – or seek to preserve self, etc? Each time we submit our will to His, and witness God work, turning things for the good in the end, it builds our faith and confidence in Him. I also think we each will ultimately go through our own “Garden of Gethsemane.” But our Lord is faithful to prepare us for the days ahead and finish the work He has begun in us!
    Blessings to you, David!

  3. Elijah Says:

    The mere thought of dying instantaneously triggers defensive mechanisms in the mind and body. It seems almost like dying and fear work as one impulse. We many times turn to the Bible and wise sayings to get good reasons why dying should be avoided. We have very awesome and great reasons to avoid dying. It is bitter, it is hard, it disturbs, it grieves, and doesn’t have any appearance of hope, love, happiness, joy and peace. BUT we find the Bible replete with references of the power and greatness of allowing a dying. God cannot lie, nor hide the truth nor find a replacement. Hebrews 6:18. God must have looked at the heart of man and knew that this will be hard. Almost impossible and unacceptable. It is to our good that GOD is no respecter of persons. How pure and deep is HIS love and understanding to reveal to us the opportunities and transcendence of the glory that comes after the dying . What would have produced life but this dying? What would have wrought the victory and triumph! God will have denied us the greatest blessing if HE did not allow us to go through tough situations and circumstances. I cannot imagine a better joy but the kind that comes from dying to self. God is able to raise us into such a far exceedingly better life only AFTER the dying. Too bad that satan and self knows this and are ever ready to make us run from the dying. God please help me 😇. I must obtain the joys that lies beyond the graves and temporal disgrace. Finish the work of my MASTER. Slay me on.

  4. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Elijah,
    Wow! Your comment shows you are a man acquainted with grief, familiar with dying to self and experiencing that “resurrection” that comes in the morning!

    That is my prayer for the Saints; may we come to the point of complete trust in our Father, to know His will is the VERY BEST for us! I believe as one gets to that point, they will gladly surrender and submit their will to His.
    Blessings to you!

    Jesus has been giving me, some prophetic revelations, about how to develop, a, continuous, hot, first love, Bride and Bridegroom, type, relationship with Him, lately. God has also been giving me, some prophetic revelations, about why people, find it very difficult to be able to love Him very much.

    God tells me, that our problem loving Him, or His Son Jesus, with all of our hearts, fervently, is similar to what Eve, experienced in the Garden of Eden, with her temptation with Satan. If Satan can get us to believe in his lies, that choosing to love the creation, more than God, the creator of it, is a good choice for us to choose to do, then he can cause us to fail, to be able to have, a very loving relationship with God.

    The way for us to overcome Satan’s temptations, to choose to not love God very much, is for us to seek God to reveal to us His truth, about how great His, and His Son, Jesus’ love, is for us. It’s like God has to wait for us, to choose to believe in His love for us, before our it will motivate us to want to love Him back for it. It’s sort of like, we love God, to the extent, that we believe that He loves us. If we don’t believe that He loves us very much, then we don’t seek to love Him back very much.

    We need God to teach us about how great His love is for us, and choose to resist believing in what Satan tries to tell us, about God not loving us very much, if we are ever going to start to have the kind of, loving God with all of our heart, type of relationship, that He is wanting to have with us. Sort of like the relationship that Adam and Eve had with Him, before they started to believe in Satan’s lies, and start loving God’s creation, more than Him, the creator of it. Satan is trying to destroy everybody’s love relationship with God, like he did with Eve, if they let him.

    When you talk of God seeking to crush us, I think of this as, God trying to crush our love for, anything, other than Him. And if we start to love God with all of our heart, then, and only then, does the crushing of our love for other created things, stop causing us a lot to pain, anymore. As we get closer to God’s severe judgments coming upon the wicked, He is trying to put us through more powerful temptations, and suffering circumstances, to try to teach us, to choose to get our fulfillment from Him spiritually, rather than from our flesh, physically. This can be a painful process, if we are in the habit, of trying to get our fulfillment from our flesh, instead of from God spiritually. God has to put us into fleshly sufferings now, and reveal to us, that His supernatural power, is able to help us to deal with them, so that when we experience, greater fleshly sufferings, in the future, they won’t cause us to lose our faith in His love, and goodness, then. God has the test us through more powerful temptations now, sort of like, Satan shifting Peter like wheat, so that we won’t fall into his temptations to apostatize from God, during the greater sufferings coming on the Earth, in our future. We should see this suffering, this Job, type, Bridal trial, training process, as something good for us, and not something harmful for us, to be experiencing, now. We also need to believe that as the sufferings increase in the future, so does God’s, miraculous, graceful help, increase, to help us to handle it.

    In a vision I had one time, me and Jesus were dancing, around World War III going on, and Jesus said to me, don’t let it bother you, I control it. We need to seek God to prepare us for what’s coming, and trust that He will, and then He will. If we believe that God greatly loves us, and that He completely controls everything, then we won’t fear anything.

    We should seek God to help us to have a strong faith in His truth now, and learn to defeat all of the Devils lies with it now, then and only then, will we be prepared, to continue to do the work of His Kingdom, during His suffering judgments for the wicked to come.

    If we can start to understand what it will be like to be, a Bride of the King of the Universe, in paradise forever, then we might start to want to learn to love Him more now, and try to stop Satan, from trying to destroy this Awesome future for us, with his lies, here on Earth, more, now.

    Perfect, Papa, God, please continue to prepare Your Son’s, Bride, through, Your, good, sufferings, for Her now, so that She can be able to handle, the greater sufferings coming upon the Earth, in Her future. In the name of Your, good, Son, Jesus, I ask You too.

    Jesus has been giving me some powerful revelations, about how to develop, a, continuous, hot, first love, Bride and Bridegroom, type, relationship with Him, lately.

    I will put the links to a prophecy, and some videos, which I posted, about these relationship, with Jesus, revelations, below, if anybody wants to check them out,

    What Jesus Wants To Say To His Suffering Bride Today, Prophecy – Rod Durham

  6. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Rod,
    Yes, God sees the big picture and only wants our good. It’s not that He wants us to “suffer” for the sake of suffering at all, but He knows true joy and happiness for us will only come through Him. This is indeed a training ground for us to learn to trust His will – His PERFECT WILL and plan for our lives.
    Blessings to you, Rod!

  7. Robert Says:

    This is both encouraging and challenging. You are so right, we ask for refining and being emptied of self, but when it comes it never looks like we expect. The Lord knows the areas in us least surrendered to Him and reveals those areas through trials. When we (I) react poorly and cry out to Him and He says you prayed for this then we realize how far we still have to go.

    Again it is encouraging and changing to know how difficult it was for the Lord in His hour of trail before the cross. Lord give us strength and courage to do well in our trials.

  8. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Robert,
    You are so right! The way the Lord answers our prayers is almost never the way we expect. He had to whisper to me, “Pay attention! I’m answering your prayers!” This was during the first major “wave” of being stripped of the things in my life that He hadn’t been involved in setting up in the first place, and soon after I’d begun to ask Him to take away everything that didn’t give Him glory…

    I echo your prayer for strength and courage to triumph through Christ in our trials ahead.

  9. Denny Cooper Says:

    “For to live for Christ is to die…” I believe His bride is experiencing this death to self in ways that cause such discomfort that it grieves us toward Him. It creates a longing to see the fruit being borne through His wise and precise discipline. For me personally, many of these changes and challenges are intangible and mental – a readying of the mind in ways that seem like a war- a groaning struggle so deep within it behooves me to seek anyone but Him for comfort. Our Lord is seeking Holy thoughts and a heart so inclined towards His will that it’s result and intent can only be attributed to His will and His authorship completing what was began within us long ago. Thanks for sharing this message. It was right on time!

  10. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Denny,
    The real war is indeed intangible and mental. Someone told me recently that the fight is so internal, it’s as if their spirit sometimes has to leave their body to fight against it. They didn’t mean that literally, but were so acutely aware of the internal battle.

    Yes, I thank God that He will finish the work He has begun in us!

  11. Gerry Hall Says:

    I have just recently discovered THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD, and it is helping me endure the agony of dying to self like nothing else since I am very alone in it. I noticed that the THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS WAS mentioned which I am having trouble learning about and understanding. Can someone help me? Diana, I praise God for you and your ministry. I think for me, it truly is a life-saver.

  12. Diana Pulliam Says:

    Gerry,
    Dying to self is a very lonely process, as we feel so alone in the natural. The Lord wants our focus to be on HIM, so it is usually necessary we be separated for a period of time.

    I’m so glad you have been blessed by coming across this site. Let me share what I feel the Lord has shown regarding the “three days of darkness.” First, you’ll not find spelled out in black and white in the Bible, specifically 3 days of darkness coming. But we are told:

    Isaiah 60:1-3, Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, THE DARKNESS SHALL COVER THE EARTH, AND DEEP DARKNESS THE PEOPLE; But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you…” (emphasis added)

    Isaiah 26:20-21, His people are told to “enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past…”

    In Revelation 6:12, the Sixth Seal is when the sun becomes black and doesn’t give light for a period of time. And of course, we know Jesus was in the tomb of darkness for 3 days and 3 nights.

    In the Bible, we see types and shadows. The Old Testament “shadows” much of what’s in the New Testament. Someone said, “The Old Testament is the New Testament veiled, and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.” Look at the ninth plague in Ex 10:21-23. It consisted of 3 days of complete darkness over Egypt, but there was light in the houses of the Israelites!

    Many of the things our Bridegroom went through, so will the Bride go through – from dying to self and the crucifixion of her flesh, culminating in her rising to walk in the Fullness of His Glory during the “rescue mission.” The Lord showed a vision of me laying at the bottom of a dark pit as if dead. He then “resurrected” me, and light was emanating from within me. I believe while I was “dead,” it represented the period of time the Bride is transformed…

    Here is a link I found that helps explain more:

    Hope that helps! Blessings to you!

  13. Gerry Hall Says:

    My dear Diana, God bless and thank you for this very comprehensive study of The Three Dark Nights. It is exactly what I needed. I can see how understanding types and shadows is the key. I look forward to going back over this again slowly and in depth. You can’t imagine how you have blessed and helped me. To God be the glory! Love, Gerry
