1 Corinthians 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
Starting in March of this year, going backwards, my husband and I endured the most awkward and stressful 26 months yet. (While there is a LOT more to the following post, for the readers sake, I cannot post everything that occurred.)
We had just come out of a long journey of laying down our six figure job, losing our home, selling our truck, and many other possession. We also lost a lot of pride, but gained a lot of faith. We lost respect of others, and gained confidence in the LORD. While our testimony of faith and witness of GOD's provision gave some encouragement, to others we were an abrasion!
In December of 2011, FATHER opened a door for a job and a rental home, providing for deposits and use of rental truck. The timing of this provision was JIT (in manufacturing, that stands for JUST IN TIME).
Now, fast forward to 2013. On May 9th, 2013, Gordon was laid off of his job. We had been down this road before, as we had experienced in the last 25 years, the shutting down or downsizing of manufacturing companies. Each time we witnessed FATHER provide in all sorts of ways. Amen.
At the time of this layoff, we had been going into our second year at this particular rental. We were not under lease.
I kept sensing that there were trials coming our way, but was not sure what. The landlord was proving to be quite a character. While he took great pride in this house that 'he built' with his fathers inheritance money (though he later divorced his wife and married another women and lived behind this house), he did not take care of it. Termites were eating it to bits. Animals were chewing through and nesting in all parts of the house. (It was symbolic of America).
I sensed this house to be a bit of a parable. It rested on the side of a ridge, overlooking the Chattanooga valley, where I had a panoramic view of the mountains. The landlords 'new' home was above us. I likened this to 'spiritual entities in high places' and I'll explain why.
Not having been given a severance package and having no savings, we were able to pay full rent until July. August and September, we could only pay some rent, which the landlord accepted but not without some harassment.
As we stayed in constant contact with the landlord, pleading for prayer (didn't he profess to be a Christian?) and assuring him we were doing all we could to secure a job, trusting the LORD for provision, he displayed large levels of antagonistic fear mongering. At one point, he told us to ask his bank to pray for us. (Entity of Mammon?)
I discerned that this mans house had been paid for long time ago and that he had a strange relationship to it. He seemed to be a one that held on to the past, via belongings, even holding on to his deceased mothers car (that held no value financially). (America's unending sense of Pride)
In short, we no longer provided the nice padding, he had become accustomed to. (Coming Austerity)
In October, the LORD told us to ask a sister to pay the rent. It was an obedience issue on both our parts. Ours to ask in humility and hers to give in obedience to the LORD. We testified to this event to the landlord, who cared not a bit.
In November, we could not pay the rent. The landlord insisted that we remedy the situation. Gordon tried to explain to this 'Christian', that only the LORD could. Beyond what we could perform in our own strength, the rest was in HIS hands.
We asked if the landlord would like to meet personally and perhaps pray about the situation. No. He wanted his money and he wanted it now.
What does a believer do, who wants to do right and cannot deliver? You are nailed to the cross of your situation and you MUST bare it! The truth is, you are right where FATHER wants you and "if pleased HIM to bruise HIS own Son", than how do we think we too shall not be bruised?!
So now the landlord has determined and decided to not listen to what Gordon told him to do: wait and trust the LORD, fear not and watch HIS provision.
He threatens to take us to court! On top of charging the back rent, he also trumps up the charges by adding exorbitant late fees and now wants us to leave. (America's debt situation and subsequent selling off of lands and such to foreign nations.)
For me, I was a little fearful. I'll be honest and I think it is a 'woman thing' of wanting 'security'. Who wants to live somewhere, where you are not wanted? And an unknown future lingering over your head. However, the LORD instructed us to NOT go to court with this man, but prepare to leave by packing our things and waiting on HIM.
In December the LORD opens a job up for Gordon and we begin to pay the full rent again. In January the landlord continues to harass us for the back rent, which we still cannot pay, and wants us to leave. We tell him we are doing the best we can, packing and looking for a new rental. This is not good enough for him. He follows through on his threat and has us summoned to court! (There is a lot of 'created' chaos and debts in America.)
In the following weeks, we pray, we search for a rental, we ask the LORD, 'how are we going to do this?'. The LORD instructs us to not go to court and to fear not, but to prepare by packing and selling off all that is not needed; we would be going into a smaller rental. Okay.
In late February on the morning that we were supposed to be in court, an enormous tree is sucked up by a down burst, thrown across the lawn, breaking a fence and pointing to the landlords house! I immediately took this as a sign that the landlord had been judged! (America is a felled tree! Her borders are broken and judgement is pointing her right in the face!)
The following weekend, we had a large and successful yard sale. I continued to pack while Gordon worked. And we both pressed on despite the extreme discomfort we felt.
We searched high and low for a place to live. While some of the homes seemed doable, the deposits were very high and we could not afford any of them. One afternoon while praying I heard, 'apartment' in my spirit. My first thoughts were that Gordon would not like that and shouldn't we be 'out there secluded somewhere'.
However, when I applied to the apartment, all the doors opened including a waiver on the deposit!!
We paid our full rent in February and told the landlord we would be leaving in March. He seemed satisfied with that but was angry with us because of the tree as if we had anything to do with that!!! (There always seem to be a scapegoat instead of repentance!)
On March 7th we began moving. We had nearly had everything moved out and would be cleaning up on the 8th. When we arrived on the 8th to load up the rest of our things, we saw the landlord and his neighbors gathered about, his car blocking the driveway. Fear rose up inside of me, as I wondered what kind of chaos this man intended.
He had entered his home on the evening of the 7th to look at his home. In order to move the washer and dryer from the second floor to the first, we had to remove the banister. (Keep in mind Gordon can fix just about anything and has built alot of things and its a banister!)
With a video camera attached to his car and his son carrying another one, they approached us and began to question what it was we were doing. Gordon told them: finishing loading the rest of our things, and about to clean up. The landlord began to scream at us about his back rent. Gordon calmly told him, he was going to try his best to pay him back.
With camera in hand, his son, got in our face and yelled at us about the banister. Gordon told me to go inside and not engage. The landlord said he was going to call the cops. Gordon told him to do so and walked back into the house to finish what we started.
When the police came, after questioning us, turned to the landlord and told him to get out and leave us alone and not return until we gave him the keys to his house. If the landlord persisted or harassed us anymore, he would be in danger of going to jail. (GOD will allow HIS people to see how the reprobates deal with situations: you will need to know, so do not be moved by what you see.)
We finished up and had a friend come to the house. We video taped the whole inside with our friend as a witness. We then video taped ourselves going to the landlords house and giving them their keys. Here is where things get very strange indeed!
The wife came to the door and as sweet as spring said she was sorry things didn't work out the way they had thought and that they had tried to help us. What? Then the landlord came to the door and said, "Hey what's up?" And was about as sugary as they come! We gave them their keys and walked away.
Gordon and I have determined that we endured this insanity to testify to the satanic christianity that is prevalent today.
There is something else. I tread lightly here, because I in no way want to sound prideful, however this is something the Holy Spirit keeps bringing up to me.
Genesis 12: 3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:
Who is true Israel? Who makes up this great nation? Is it not HIS people that span across generations and geological locations? 'Who are My mother and brothers? Those who do the will of My FATHER' declared JESUS.
Israel are sheep. We are little sheep of HIS pasture. And we are lambs after HIS own heart. In this world we will endure tribulation: as sheep going to the slaughter is our flesh! For flesh and blood do not inherit the kingdom of GOD, yet while we are in the flesh, we see HIS provision. And yet while in the flesh, we live the kingdom of GOD in our midst because we are born again!
There are rulers and authorities, laws and particulars. And GOD can use any of it as HE chooses. The important thing is to obey and rest: there is reason for it.
America is done. Surely most can see that? Yet there are many who know not!
Where were the great hot tears of grief from the many 'pastors' and 'preachers' in this nation? I've only heard a couple, one being David Wilkerson's Call to Anguish. Where is the anguish? It is small.
This nation had been given many opportunities to listen to the 'John the baptists' of this day, but churches have refused. They demand payment! They demand right on their own behalf, but turn a deaf ear to the needy! The 'christian' people cannot even love each other!
The language of Lucifer, the 'illuminated' double-speak of the diaprax, has fully infiltrated every sector of American existence (and the world)! How else in the world, could so much black magic be an every day occurrence?
(see below for a definition of 'daiprax')
The Remnant is on reserve. The true church is hidden in plain sight. And while she is being crucified in many regards, her crucifixions are bringing judgement (some good, some bad, some a mixture of both!)
You are right where Christ wants you. HE is the Husband and the leader; you are HIS helpmeet and yes, you will suffer, but HE will hold you while you suffer, just as a husband holds his wife while she suffers to bring forth during labor: some to life, some to death.
You will not be able to fathom this without FAITH. This is a super natural life that you are now living, as you have been born again!
Proverbs 31: The true church laughs at the days to come. JESUS for the joy set before HIM, endured the cross, scorning its shame and now sits at the right hand of the throne of HIS FATHER.
A crown is coming! Endure till the end. Lay down any notion that the great nation of America will be redeemed! She is an ensign to the last of the last days: great wealth and pride, imaginations of a favored future, and my will be done my way, is over!
And as for the 'churches' in this country: "2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities."
In 2008 FATHER told me, "2 Peter 2:10. 2 Peter 2:10. 2 Peter 2:10, they do not obey MY authority. A thousand churches will burn."
Suddenly as I write this, I am now crying. FATHER has given so much time to repent, so much time to reflect, to do our due diligence to study the Word and seek HIM and understand HIS ways. There will be much calamity without remedy in the days to come.
((Diaprax is a word coined by Dean Gotcher, founder of the Institute for Authority Research. Dean has traveled the United States and given over 1,000 live presentations to Christians explaining this wicked technique that is surreptitiously destroying our families, our government, and even our Christian churches.
After reading and digesting 600+ social psychology books, Mr. Gotcher joined the word dialectic and the wordpraxis to create the term DIAPRAX. Dialectic is a philosophical term that describes the use of dialogue to resolve conflict between opposing ideas or opinions. The word Praxis simply means "to practice." Therefore, Diaprax is the practice of the dialectic.
These terms are derived from the ungodly 18th century philosophical model that is known as the Hegelian Dialectic. Named after the German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Hegel (although considerably refined since its inception in Hegel's era), this world view has now completely enveloped the world.
In its simplest form, the Diaprax system is a process whereby the entire world will eventually dialog until they reach a consensus. The 3 part formula consists of 3 essential components: Thesis, Antithesis, and Synthesis. Simply put, a "thesis" is combined with the opposing view, the "anti-thesis," and the result is called the "synthesis."))http://www.christianmediaresearch.com/cmc-14.html
