Peace Versus the Sword
(Full Surrender for the Great Commission)

This is what the Sovereign Lord says,

“From 2006 onwards, My sword began its journey passing through this nation (UK), the nations of the world, people groups, families and the Church. Jesus made it very plain when He said, ‘I did not come to bring peace but a sword, to divide and separate sheep from goats and wheat from tares.’ Micah in his day revealed this truth to Israel (Micah 7:5-6). From the beginning the enemy has strived to bring a widespread cross-current fog of deception, of counterfeit thoughts, ideas and man’s plans to deceive, distract, delay, deflect, redirect or derail My people. Like those lukewarm Laodiceans who are like phlegm in the throat of the Body of Christ (Revelation 3:14-22). There has always been those who are not truly committed and become the devil’s plants to sow seeds of strife and division to fracture or break the Body of Christ.

“To many today, the Church has become a refuge and a hiding place, not the power house it is called to be, instead of binding the strong man and pulling down his strongholds (Ephesians 3:10-11 and Ephesians 6:10-18), for many, they themselves are bound and are being dragged down. Return to your first love before it is too late, for I will shut the gate. I am the true Vine and My Father is the Gardener, abide in Me, remain in Me and bear fruit, you cannot bear fruit by yourself.

“Soldiers of the cross are called to lay down their life for their friends. You are My friends if you do what I command, many I say, many have already made a full surrender but not to the Holy Spirit, but to the world. Do not be deceived, if you do not remain in Me as a branch in the Vine, you will wither away, by yourself you can do nothing, your works will be tested by the fire of the Holy Spirit. To complete the Every Creature Commission I have called and chosen men and women from many nations, who have, or are, in the process of surrendering their bodies to the Holy Spirit to be used as His temple. Those who dare to stand in their way, His way, My way, Our way, will be pruned back or pruned out. Time is short, the Groom is making ready to come for His Bride. In Elijah’s day, I reserved seven thousand and in this hour I have set apart many more who will walk in the power of My Spirit in this end-time outpouring of My Spirit on all flesh.”
