To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.
It grieves me deeply to write that there is a serious famine of “whole Word” churches that rely solely on God’s Word, without any man-made side doctrines, and who allow Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to reign. Many churches acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s existence, but do not allow Him to lead or minister to His people.
I, as well as many others, have tried and tried and have not been able to find a whole Word church and have even heard the still small voice of the Lord telling them not to return to one time and time again. Of all places a church.
These are the verses the Lord gave me about those being kept by God in this time of church famine and how the Holy Spirit used them to speak to me and hopefully encourage you as well:
To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine (Psalm 33:19). The Lord said, “In this famine of true churches. I AM will keep you spiritually alive. Continue to seek Me with all your heart.”
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied (Psalm 37:19). He gave me this from one of my favorite psalms and reiterated that, “These are evil times, and I, the Lord You God, will satisfy you.”
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage (2 Peter 2:19). He said, “I’ve kept you from the corporate church system to keep you and preserve you from corruption. You remember leaving church worse off in faith after attending than before. Having less faith and feeling more oppressed.”
The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore (Psalm 121:5-8). He keeps reminding me over and over to encourage me out in this desert time for the church that, “I am keeping and preserving you from evil.” Mind-blowing that this is in regard to most of today’s churches in America. Most. Not all.
He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant (Psalm 105:41-42). Glory to God! Yes, there is a true church famine, but He said, “I am the Living water in the dry places. I take care of My children.”
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert (Isaiah 35:6). “I give you life in the desert. I make a way when there is no way. Do not doubt Me. Do not feel crazy. Do not allow yourself to be condemned by those who think you are in disobedience. This time is for your protection and preservation.”
And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days (Joel 2:28-29). He said, “All My children have my Holy Spirit and can know Me and learn of Me no matter where they are, what their title is or education level. My authority is available to all who yield to Me, who call to Me, and diligently seek Me. For all who desire me. Not a select few. Not by location or in special buildings, events, movements, or conference. Anytime. Anywhere. I AM.”
If God has kept your from America’s corporate church building settings. Fear not. He’s keeping you and preserving you from corruption and from being in churches that are of the world. He’d rather you not be under false teachings, churches that compromise, fear man and not God, and have bowed to mammon, entertainment, attraction gimmicks and not truth.
You also see Him connecting you on-line and in person to those who desire His kingdom come, His will be done, one earth as it is in Heaven.
Also, see this as a reminder to pray for the church to return to their first love and the whole counsel of God.
To God be the glory!
