Sitting on the Fence of Defence
(Facing Truths – Tares and Sons of the Evil One)

This is what the Sovereign Lord says,

“For generations My chosen ones have sat on a fence on the defence because the name of Jesus is an offence to many. Now is the time to come down off this fence that you have been nailed to, and rise up in resurrection power in the name of Jesus, and the blood of the Lamb to claim the very ground that you stand on. You have suffered what you have tolerated; in almost every fellowship there are those who do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men. They are stumbling blocks to the name of Jesus and the good news of the gospel. [Philippians 1:15, Titus 1:11, 1 John 2:19 and 3 John 10].

“Many I say, many are being mocked by the few, but I will not be mocked; in every fellowship those who sow to please their sinful nature shall surely reap destruction. To the many parts of the Body of Christ, I have this to say – it is not a climb down, but a step up when you face and deal with those tares who are the sons of the evil one sown by the devil. If My chosen ones had spent as much time in My Word, in prayer and in My presence as they have sat on the fence, then their eyes would have been opened to the truth.

“I AM pulling down this fence of indecision and you will be compelled to face the truth that has been staring you in the face for generations. But My people have been unwilling to face it or deal with it. I have given My Church all the power they need to stand in victory against the enemy, but you must use it as I direct. I know of the frustration and anger that some of you feel, knowing that some in leadership do not have in mind the things of God, but their own selfish will. In all things I would encourage you to look to Me in prayer and in My Word, and allow the Holy Spirit the responsibility of leading you in the outworking of every situation. Your struggle is not with flesh and blood. You must stand against the enemy in the full armour of God. Be strong in Me, and My mighty power to come against the devil’s schemes.

“Listen I say, listen to the Spirit of the Lord, you are in the final hour of the last day and will be compelled to choose. The choice is yours and yours alone, no servant can serve two masters. If you are wedded to the world, you cannot love or be devoted to Me. For there are those in the Church this day that despise Me, My true teachings and those who are devoted to Me. Again I say, this is the last hour and in this hour you are called to test all things against the Word of God. You have also been called to test the spirits, for you do not recognise the difference between the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of falsehood. How then will you recognise the spirit of the antichrist that is already in the world?

“Bad company corrupts good character; diseased branches spread disease, yeast ferments through the whole batch of the dough. Polluted people desecrate, violate, and profane that which is sacred and in time convert it to evil use. Even now, as the Spirit of God speaks, many of you are still confused and in your hearts are saying, ‘What has this to do with me?’ Listen, these people honour Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. Why are you so dull? It is the righteous who will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. The tares, the weeds are goats who do not hear or wish to hear the Shepherd’s voice. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing and are ferocious, and come to scatter the flock, to divide, separate and lead astray to devour. These cunning old wolves have made their lair in the sheep pen and will not rest day or night. You must drive them out. At the end of the age, the Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. He who has ears let him hear.”
