I always prayerfully profess to the Lord that I will write what He shows me in visions for the benefit of His Church around the world and for His Glory. Soon after prayer during the very early morning hours, I was shown a cluster of grapes. Suddenly, scissors hovered in the air as though they were being held by invisible hands. It appeared that the blades were preparing to cut into the grapes. Immediately, the word “Faithful” was spoken. I prayerfully asked for more clarification when the following Words were spoken: “Knife Church Separation Trouble Trouble.”
This message carries a weighty subject. It is one that is difficult to write and one that will be difficult for many to read considering its divisive impact on families. At the same time, it is a message of hope. It is a message sent as a warning so the faithful can alert others before the imminent and final blade strikes.
The grapes that are about to be imminently cut out are sour grapes. Sour grapes biblically symbolized GOD’S judgment on Israel for sins, iniquities, sinful behaviors and patterns committed by the fathers; the distasteful consequences which can extend into the 4th generation and perhaps even beyond.
“The fathers have eaten sour grapes (sin and evil) and the children’s teeth are on edge (are blunted and dull – unable to masticate and discern the Word of Truth ) ” (Ezekiel 18:2)
“….For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me.” (Deut. 5:9)
I was led to read verses in Matthew Chapter 10 in which Jesus prophesied about the division (separation) determined to take place among families and household members during the latter days. It is a prophesy that highlights the moral and spiritual breakdown of family members because of generational iniquities and their consequent inability to comprehend and discern GOD’S truth. I marveled at the word “Sword” in these verses because it actually means “knife” as defined in Strong’s Concordance (#3162) and as confirmed early this morning by the Spoken Word. The Holy Spirit truly works in combination with the Word and in awesome ways as He opens our understanding. It is no wonder that John referred to Him as the Spirit of Truth. Praise GOD and thank you Jesus.
“Whoever therefore shall confess Me before men him will I also confess before My Father which is in Heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in Heaven. (faith and belief in Jesus Christ and His complete plan of salvation.) Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword (knife – the Word). For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household’ (separation). He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” (Mat. 10:34-39)
Those who have been awakened by the Word and the Spirit of Truth will recognize the generational sins, iniquities, negative patterns and behaviors that have infiltrated their families and the world. As difficult as it is and will be, they will have to decisively and divisively take a stand in favor of the Light.
Matthew Chapter 10 finishes with the rewards for service:
“He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. (Eternal Life through the FATHER’s Son) He that receiveth a prophet ( a true prophet) in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man (the righteousness of Christ upon which is predicated the New Kingdom) in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones (new Believers) a cup of cold water (the portion which GOD allows) only in the name of a disciple (follower of Christ) verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. (the reward is guaranteed) ” (Mat. 10:40-42)
There is trouble trouble brewing on the horizon; it is already manifesting. It will test and try multitudes until the time of fulfillment is accomplished. In the final judgment, faithful Believers will be spared. Contrariwise, GOD’S fury and judgement against sin will be depicted in the final crushing of non-repented and evil grapes in the wine press of His wrath. (Is. 63:2-4) (Rev. 14). But GOD is still merciful because of the finished works of HIS Son Jesus Christ. Although there is an urgency accompanying this post, there is still time for the faithful to make a difference. Do not lose hope; Pray for your strayed and lost loved ones. Be a living example of Christ’s Light to them. Share the Word of Truth which is the Sword – the Knife that can sharpen blunted and dull teeth. (Eph. 6:17) Share the living Light that is in you in whatever ways you are moved and guided. Make haste carefully, time is of the essence – it always is according to GOD’S prophetic guidelines and timetable.
[The symbolic meaning of sour grapes not only applies to family bloodlines and their affected generations; it includes the Church destined to be grafted into the New Commonwealth of the New Kingdom. The Church worldwide, composed of family members unified by the Blood of the Lamb, is the House of the Lord. And we know that judgment must first take place in His House. (1 Pet. 4:17)]
Another vision was shown following this one and is the subject of the next post.
Keep the Faith, it is a Light that still shines in a dark world!
