“A Great Division is Coming to the Nations!”

divided

“My people are halted between two opinions, two ways of life; prosperity and prison. Who is right in the fight among your prophets? Some battle for the course of Babylonian captivity – others battle for freedom of prosperity and peace. Who is My Prophet that declares truth?

Thus saith the Lord, the one who warns My people of the sword of calamity and chaos to come. The one who warns that Babylon will be their home. For I have not called for peace, but a sword! A great division is coming to the nations! A great separation of what was and what is to come! For the reality of the hour is here!

There will be no more guessing and false prophets saying our Lord has stayed His hand and delayed His return. For I have not stayed My hand and I will not delay My return says the Lord! For I will return to My House swiftly with a sword to cleanse it! And to divide the sheep from the goats – the wheat from the tares. For I am carrying what is mine, like wheat in bundles into Babylon! I will teach you how to live in the courts of a foreign king! I will raise up My Church in Her darkest hour. For she will be My light in a dark, crooked, and perverse nation.

Do not be amazed at the sudden change that is coming to America. Did I not say I will return to My temple suddenly? (Malachi 3:1) I am here to redeem what is Mine, to release you into the greatest hour of the Church. But you must settle it! Babylon is where My Church will abide and thrive! There will be no harvest outside of Babylon, because Babylon will have no bounds!”

The Father led me to Jeremiah 29, where He shared with me the certainty of where we are headed. Because of our rebellion and deeply rooted sin, we as a Church and a nation must settle within our hearts the cold hard reality we are heading into the captivity of the beast system. Have no fear, because Jesus told us that this day would come, and it is right at our front door. Settle it!

Jeremiah, the great Prophet of God who always seemed to have the hard job of telling it like it is, was asked to do it again. As you may remember, Jeremiah had just dealt with the lying Prophet Hananiah in chapter 28, who said there was no way Israel would go into captivity. Well, he was wrong, and he went to his reward via the grave. The true Prophet of God was vindicated; Israel went into captivity. Now a new batch of false Prophets had arisen, this time in Babylonian captivity!

Isn’t that just like the devil? He is already defeated, lost the war, and has been sentenced to damnation, yet he tries (and succeeds) in making nations believe a lie!

That is where we are right now as a country. We have reached the city limits of Babylon, but the false Prophets of this hour are telling us we are not entering in! Listen, our tickets have been booked, our reservations have been made, and the moving company has boxed up all of our stuff, yet we are denying reality! Look outside your window, we are not moving forward into peace and harmony, we moving forward deeper into hell!

Like Jeremiah, the true prophets have a huge task of convincing the brain washed masses that we will finish out the sentence given to us because we have turned our backs on God!

Now these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the residue of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon; (Jeremiah 29:1)

The Father said, “Jeremiah, My people are in captivity, yet they are still listening to these so called prophets who I didn’t send. Write this letter and send it to the leadership of the people, tell them that there is no quick fix nor early release from their sentence of judgment. I meant what I said!”

In essence the Father was telling the captives of Babylon, settle it! Jeremiah was directed to have this letter sent by the hands of those whom the Father could trust. These were not just nominal mail carriers or errand boys, but the offspring of two great men! Their fathers were men who cared for the Word of God, men dedicated to protecting and preserving truth! The prophetic Word of God must be handled in honor, humility, and most of all, in the fear of the Lord! The proper ministry of the Word of God will bring national revival!

By the hand of Elasah the son of Shaphan, and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, (whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent unto Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon) saying, (Jeremiah 29:3)

Who were these great men, Shaphan, and Hilkiah?

And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. (2 Kings 22:8)

You must read all of chapter 22 and 23 to fully understand the history making impact this discovery had on the nation of Israel! Israel went into a total restoration and renewal, burning down the idols of yesterday and entering into right relationship with Jehovah, because they discovered Truth!

To God we’d find preachers willing to tell us the Truth, who burn with Holy Ghost passion, and dare not err from this blessed Truth handed down to us by our fathers in the faith! This is what revival really looks like, not the fashion shows we have today, where we highlight the rotten flesh of a man’s talent! We can learn a lot from an eight-year old king, whose heart was one fire with Truth!

4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
5 And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
6. And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
7. And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove. (2 Kings 23:4-7)

Now that’s a revival meeting I would love to attend! Unfortunately, todays mealy mouthed, feminized preachers wouldn’t allow King Josiah to be on their preachers roster for the next homecoming revival service!

These were the men the Father entrusted with the letter to the captives. Sons of great men, who were found worthy to carry this message. May the Father continue to raise up men and women of God that He can trust to deliver a message of hope and truth, to this crooked and perverse nation. In all honesty, the current lot of preachers we have today, simply are not getting the job done.

The message was clear, Jehovah led them into captivity for their high treason against Him. We are going into captivity for the same reasons. We have rejected His Truth, His Counsel, His Grace, and His Plan for this nation, but yet we deny we have sinned and we reject the notion we are evil, even as the iron shackles are placed around our hands and feet.

4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon;
5. Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;
6. Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished.
7. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. (Jeremiah 29:4-7)

The Father was telling the Prophet Jeremiah, “Tell My people to settle it! Deal with the reality of your punishment. Don’t fight Me on this. I am working something out of you, called rebellion, and this is the medicine I’ve prescribed! If you rebel in this season, it will make your captivity that much harsher.”

Simply put, live, prosper, make peace in Babylon, and enjoy your stay! This is the prophetic word for this hour for the Church, but the Selfie Church doesn’t want to hear preachers like me. We are so negative, so harsh, so brash, they say, “You ruined my day! You hurt my feelings, and you made me spill my latte on my new yoga pants!”

Whatever! Get over it, we are headed into captivity!

The sad reality is that no matter how much proof and evidence you give folks; they still won’t believe you. The earth is convulsing in front of them, yet they continue to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, while listening to their favorite false prophet on their headphones!

8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.
9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.
10 For thus saith the LORD, “After seventy years have been accomplished at Babylon, I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” (Jeremiah 29:8-10)

The Father is telling His people, “You will not get out of this mess until I have accomplished My plan! I know what I am doing, I know the end from the beginning. In fact, I need you in captivity. Because it is in this place, I can talk to you and you will listen.”

It is always in the lowest points of our lives that we reach for a hand that is bigger than ours. The Father is telling America and the Church, “I’m taking you to your lowest point, in order for you to reach up towards Me again. I have a plan! I AM the plan!”

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive. (Jeremiah 29:11-14)

The word ‘thoughts’ in verse 11 means ‘plan or device’. The Father has a divine plan and a device that will enable us to reap the greatest harvest of souls in recorded history. The device is called Babylonian captivity!

Read these verses again. The Father made these promises to Israel while they were in captivity. He promised them restoration, if they would seek Him with all of their hearts, but the offer of revival and blessings, was not offered to them while they lived in their luxury of sin in Jerusalem; it was offered while they pinned away in the devil’s Kingdom!

For us to think we will escape judgment, tyranny, and all out Babylonian captivity is complete foolishness! Please for the sake of your family, stop listening to the lying prophets of this hour! If you do not follow this course and prepare for the coming days, I fear for your survival. If you and I do not settle the fact, that the Father has a plan to bless us, use us, and restore us in His Presence within His Kingdom, then we are subject to become victims of the coming sword of judgment!

Like Israel in verse 14, the Father promises to return us to His Glorious Kingdom if we will seek Him with all our heart.

I am going to say something that may offend you, but all of your fasting, which is no more than a hunger strike against Heaven, will not stop this. It is a prophetic certainty that when a nation revolts against Heaven, Heaven revolts against that nation. Settle it! The sword is coming!

17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
18. And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them:
19. Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 29:17-19)

In conclusion, I want to share with you an amazing fact the Father revealed to me in verse 23.

Because they have committed villany in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbours’ wives, and have spoken lying words in My name, which I have not commanded them; even I know, and am a witness, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 29:23)

The word villany in this verse is the root word NABAL (Strong’s #5036), which means foolishness. If you go back to my prophetic word about the Spirit of Nabal, you can read of his sin that he committed against not only David, but also against the Father’s plan to raise up a new kingdom. He rebelled because he was a selfish old man! He was a fool not to embrace the changes that were all around him. He refused to serve the plan of God. He rejected the device God had created for Israel’s benefit. Thus he lost his life, his possessions, his wife, and certainly his soul. Why? Because he refused to embrace the plan of God!

Church we must accept the days before us. We must embrace the prophetic reality of what the Lord Jesus said about this generation in Matthew 24. We are here, the sword is here. Now let’s settle it, and prepare for the final harvest of humanity!

Thank you pastor Faircloth for always speaking the truth of the Lord. Thank you for not preaching what itching ears want to hear. Thank you for not having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. Thank you for giving us the truth , for the truth of God’s word sets us free! Thank you for being obedient to the call that He has on your life.

Truth…yes….Truth…and thus the silence. I read this posting early and was led to be still…..I hear crickets chirping. “You will not get out of this mess until I have accomplished My plan! I know what I am doing, I know the end from the beginning. In fact, I need you in captivity. Because it is in this place, I can talk to you and you will listen.” Pastor Faircloth I admire your tenacity to continue speaking Truth. My observation is, the low number of responses is in direct proportion to who desires to hear it….

I read this most recent post (as of today) by Pastor Benjamin Faircloth, and my spirit agreed with it. I inquired of the Lord to confirm to me if my understanding was right. I told him that I did not see persecution or tribulation or suffering or poverty either in Genesis 1 or in Revelation 21. I told him that I took this to mean that such things were never part of his original plan nor is it part of the everlasting future he has planned for his children but that he has allowed it to show us the consequences of sin and to refine those called to be holy so that they are holy just as he is holy. In other words, I presumed that these things were not his will but he is nevertheless using them to work things out for the good of his children. I then asked him to speak to me and tell me if I was understanding correctly. I was going to meditate on Romans 8:5–8. Upon first reading, I felt like the passage had a connection to the pastor’s post, but I was missing it. The Lord had me read it several times over. I still failed to see what he was hinting at. So I plainly expressed my inability to understand and asked him to lay it all out for me. This is what I received then: Life and peace are for those who live according to the Spirit. Those who live according to the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires and submit to God’s law. For such people are life and peace. [Therefore, it is God’s desire to give life and peace, but they are only for those led by his Spirit.] I also felt God put… Read more »

The Lprd gave me a dream about this very thing- that peace and prosperity are for God’s people….I will not recount my dream here, but the message was that this is absolutely a cause-and-effect relationship…..following God’s ways is the cause, peace and prosperity the effect….”feeding” on the prosperity without following God’s ways is unhealthy, damaging and creates addiction; addiction to the prosperity….the good things were meant to be enjoyed in moderation by God’s people on “breaks” in our service to Him….the good things are created by God’s people, to be enjoyed in moderation by God’s people….others need to be taught to walk in Gos’s ways BEFORE they partake in the prosperity….for their own good.

That’s awesome! God bless brother! It made me think of John 4:21-24
John 4:21-24 (NKJV)
21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Keep shouting out the TRUTH, Pastor Faircloth. . . . A rare commodity compared to the Sunday carnival gathering, where cotton candy is freely served, freely eaten and more requested. No “meat” of the Word and don’t dare discuss End Times or say the “R” word (REPENT), in case it causes a “trigger” . . The church version of “safe zones”. Waaaaah!!! I think bankies and pacifiers are also handed out because fee-weens can get hurt.
Soon and very soon. . . TRUTH will be slapping folks in the face.

Yes, I’m disgusted for MOST are heading into eternal damnation, with cotton candy still stuck on the mouth and yes, I have been interceding for MERCY. . . .but now? Redemptive Judgements.

I was prompted to pray for our Nation today, in a way that I have NEVER been prompted. I posted the prayer earlier in another Z3 post, but was also prompted to write it up. This goes with your warning message:

Thank you Linda, mercy is what I and Ignited Church have been directed to pray for some time now. This apathy and indifference that has dampened the heart of the Church is breaking the Father’s heart. We have left Him very few options to correct us but none the less, thy will be done!
Whoever is reading this post right now and you haven’t made things right with the Father concerning your soul, do it now! Don’t wait another day! You are loved with an everlasting love, but God will not be mocked , there is a payday someday and there is a side to the Father you never want to experience! You that are backslidden IN the Church, you can’t hide your sin under the veil of self righteousness! Repent now and be washed in True Holiness, thru the shed Blood of the Living Lamb. This isn’t a game, this is reality! Heaven and Hell are real, decide today to follow Jesus! I am praying that you would.

This is exactly what is on my heart too! There is NO other way to rescue souls that would slip into hell except by a MAJOR shaking that can not be denied. I am the one that “divorced” my “christian” parents who are devote democrats planning on voting for Hillary. There hasn’t been movement from them but I just finished day ten of a fast dedicated to asking the Lord to remove the scales from their eyes. Two days ago I wrote a very direct text to my out of state “christian” brother and asked. “I am going to ask you a straight up question and I want a straight up answer. Do you think a person can be currently participating in homosexual sex, or fornication which is sex outside of marriage and go to heaven?” His answer was Yes. Even though I just knew he would say that I was still like YIKES!!!!! I sent a flury of Bible verses to him including Matthew 7:14 with talks about the narrow road to heaven. Here was my very smart ER physician brother, christian his whole life response. (He is divorced and now lives with a girlfriend.) “Everyone is a sinner. Only by grace does anyone have a chance and by Jesus’ shed blood. You know David? God’s chosen one murdered a 1000 men. Had sex with 100s. Had Bathsheba’s husband killed???? Is he going to heaven? Why did Jesus love Mary Magdeline who screwed the whole town? Paul killed dozens of Christians with his bare hands before he changed . All men fail. Even u. Well, I told him I knew I was a sinner but I had made my original question VERY clear that I was talking about current, WILLFUL sin and NOT past repented sin that anyone could… Read more »

Sometimes you just gotta let people go. You’ll be amazed at the burden that is lifted and the peace you have when you say, “Father, I leave them in Your hands. I did my job and warned them. It’s up to you now.” That’s the cool thing about being a watchman. You don’t have to convince anyone of anything, including your own family. All you have to do is warn. The Holy Spirit will do the convincing. I’m learning that. Really takes the burden away!

I know how everyone feels. No one wants to hear the truth, that this is truly the the end of the last days. When I talk about it they think I am crazy. I now see how the great deception is going (and is) taking place. Believers forget that This is Satans (the great deceiver) world. Apart from the lord everything else is a lie. The church for the most part is not preparing the body for the end of days. It grieves me terribly that no one wants to listen. I believe that we are going to have to go thru a great shaking to wake up. I don’t don’t what else to do but pray. God Bless

The LORD’s Words Today (by SUSAN DAVIS of Indiana) [Note from Peggy— I did not copy and paste the entire article—I left off the bottom portion—- this is the applicable portion to the post above. Also, especially look at the bottom part of this—beginning with the words “Let’s Look at Biblical History”] Dear Followers of CHRIST: Who is CHRIST Returning for? In March 2009, the LORD told me to warn others HE was coming back soon to rapture HIS people. Then (August 2010), out of anguish from frustration that it seemed no one was listening to me, a year later I was alone in my car, I asked the LORD just why no one was paying attention to the message HE told me to give the people? The LORD spoke to me on the spot—HE said: “Very few people have been around for the big moves of GOD: very few were saved from Sodom & Gomorrah; very few were saved during Noah’s time; very few believed JESUS was GOD when HE walked the earth; and very few will be raptured.” Then I was stunned when I came across this verse the very next day which was essentially the same message: Luke 17:26-30 (KJV): 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the SON of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and… Read more »

It saddens me to think that only FEW will find the narrow way.
It is not His will that ANY would perish (end up in hell for eternity in torment).
But, God knew the end from the beginning. He knew that love requires a free will choice. He gave us that gift of free will.
He knew from the beginning that only few would make the choice to fully receive Him.

(These are my thoughts…..)

Thank-you for sharing your story. You are absolutely correct in standing for Truth, even when difficult. You are correct in warning your brother. I agree with everything you have written. Keep praying for your family and see what the Holy Spirit guides you to say and/or do.

Remember, the Scriptures state something to the effect of whoever will not leaven father or mother for My sake, is not worthy of me.”

Peggy and Pastor Faircloth thank you for your words. After writing my comment last night I went to bed and quietly sobbed thinking about the depth of the grief felt by our Father in Heaven atthe state of the “church” today. I have absolutely no contact with my parents unless they can say that 1. God hates abortion and same sex marriage 2. Obama and Hillary are evil 3. They can’t vote for Hillary. They have made it clear that they intend to vote for Hillary. They told other relatives that talked to them saying they should listen to me that “abortion is good because the babies just go to heaven and separation of church in state is good, you wouldn’t want to offend a muslim by praying the name of our God.” UUUGGGGGHHHH!!!! I spent 30 hours writing them a mammoth letter, running off inches of z3 articles and other information. Now, I have TOTAL peace since I was obedient to “divorcing” them BUT if any of you gifted writers and thinkers have comments to share concerning my story I will have my husband take them the article. My parents are lovely people and have been so supportive of me and my family. They have always tithed and have been on many mission trips and my mom has gone to Israel several times. They do love God and bear fruit and would certainly claim that Jesus is the way to salvation BUT my dad does NOT present a balanced message, mocks prophecy they sit in a church that the Holy Spirit would dare not enter. They don’t live sinful lives but yet they don’t seem to understand the ways of God. I shared Mena Lee Grebin with a friend of my daughter’s who caught the fire and was trying… Read more »

Tammy, it’s a dangerous thing to mock prophecy, for the Bible clearly states:

Revelation 19:10b “. . . For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
And
1 Corinthians 14:1 ~ “Earnestly pursue love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.”

I believe the prayers for your parents and MOST in the professing “church” are for their spiritual eyes and ears to be open, that they may receive the TRUTH that can set them free. Otherwise, they will be caught up in the increasingly dark demonic delusion that is engulfing the planet. Those who refuse to seek or believe the TRUTH are refusing Jesus Christ and they will be a part of the group who is given over to the deluding influence warned about in 2 Thessalonians 2:11.

Indeed we are in CRUNCH TIME. No time to be playing church.

Tammy,
Your letter shows that your parents are in quite a state of “mixture.”
They demonstrate much that seems “good,” but there is that poison of lack of discernment of TRUTH that requires a CROSS with it mixed in. Others see their “good” and follow it without individual discernment. We all need to keep in mind that we will each stand ALONE before a Holy God. God has NO GRANDCHILDREN, just children. We will not be able to give “excuses,” saying we thought “thus and so” was okay because our pastor, parents, friends, etc. told us it was okay, and it’s their fault. No, we will be held individually accountable, and there will be no “do-overs.”

We need to get the OIL ourselves!
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Think about it. No one can digest that bread except ourselves. No one can do that for us!
One of the best ways to learn to discern is by spending concentrated daily time in the Word of God OURSELVES! In fact it is imperative that we do so!

Anyway, if you would like to see some good information besides on Z3, I would recommend Linda Clay’s Blog. I’ll bet you can find it by clicking on her blue name link to the right of her picture.

Also listen to her radio interview of 9/7/2016. It begins at the 47 minute mark. She is scheduled to be on again on 9/14/2016. Links to the interviews are available on her blog, and the interviews are archived, so you can listen at any time.

Blessings to you as you continue to feel the grief of the Father’s heart and to do your best to address saving measures.

Peggy, thank you for the information about Linda’s blog. Her blog which I originally found through z3 has been extremely important for me to learn that Obama is the antichrist!!! Thank you Linda and James for that truth, but I am glad you put it on here for others to find. I also wanted to say that I gave my dad the written copy of Mena Lee Grebin’s interview on Trunews from May 2015. When my dad returned it he just smiled and handed it to me. I said “what did you think?” (That was the first thing I listened to about this being the end times and I KNEW that I KNEW it was true and thought my dad would have to “see” it, too.) He said the Holy Spirit in him said she wasn’t good. I said, “what does your spirit say about Obama?” He replied, “He is good.” That is confusing to me how he talks about having the Holy Spirit even though he can’t discern the season we are i!! I told him in my letter that the Holy Spirit can not be telling him that abortion and Obama are good. It is a spirit but it is NOT the Holy Spirit!
Jeremiah 2: 13-14 They have rejected my Spirit and created their own experiences that they call the Holy Spirit. This is the greatest grief to me.

I think there are only two spirits: The Holy Spirit and the unholy spirit. One is Holy and the other is demonic.

There are only two “wills”: God’s Holy Will and satan’s will.
Our own personal will, not surrendered to God comes under the latter category.

Satan is such a liar and deceiver. He HATES all human beings made in the image and likeness of God. He just wants to lure them to hell forever so they can suffer forever and ever. How horrible!

Let’s do our best to listen to the Holy Spirit ONLY and get His strategies for bringing our loved ones, friends, neighbors, and everyone possible into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Tammy,
If this helps: I am in a similar position that you are in.

Also, I’m remembering the words of Bette Stevens (Z3news author) on a Nation-wide Conference Call that she held. Her words: “There is a false sense of peace on America and it is demonic.”

I say that “normalcy bias” has overtaken a large # in America.
We have to love the TRUTH, even when it hurts. Perhaps that is a large component of our CROSS that we are commanded to pick up daily.

My dad and I are constantly referring back to the Mars Attack movie where the aliens are saying with their mouths, “We come in peace” while shooting everyone in sight with their ray guns as shocked welcoming audiences, including the U.S. Senate look on. Jesus is the Prince of Peace and without him we are chasing what is not true peace, only talk. Such a sad but true visual of so many…up to and including the peace accord eventually brokered with Israel by Antichrist, which will be anything but. Your family, coworkers and friends will remember your words when events start to follow the prophecies shared with them. That is the warning and Watchman part. You are planting the seeds which world events and Holy Spirit will water…

Another thing is that if we don’t have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit; the presence of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives, I don’t see how we can live out the Gospel. What are our “good” works without His direction and ANOINTING? Absolutely nothing. Church becomes nothing but a social meeting without HIS free reign and HIS ANOINTING.

Without our yielding individually and corporately to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are just doing the “letter of the law” and not the “Spirit.”
The “letter” brings death (3,000 died at Mt. Sinai when the “letter” came down).
The “Spirit” brings LIFE (3,000 were SAVED on that first Pentecost).

Perhaps the issue is that “we” are 3-part beings. We are “a spirit.”
We live temporarily in “a material body.” We have “a soul (mind, will, and emotions).”

Perhaps the “set free from sin; now you are a saint” refers to our born again spirit.

Perhaps the “if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves” is in reference to the “unsaved” mind, will, and emotions. Our inner spiritual salvation has to be “worked out” to these areas, most likely continually, until our last breath.

Peggy A:
1John 1:8 – Why not just believe what it says, that we are sinners and if we say we are not sinners then we are liars. Romans 7 is a good explanation of 1 Jn 1:8 in my opinion. Let me offer a good explanation. Christ was 100% God and 100 % man. As redeemed Believers we are now 100% Saint and 100% Sinner. “Simul justus et peccator”.

STAY STRONG!!! I pray for each of you and that the Holy Spirit continues to strengthen and to speak through you each. I plead the blood of Yahshua over each of you and your families and declare the NO weapon from the enemy may come upon you or trouble you nor touch anything that is of yours!

Pastor Faircloth…its funny but a sad funny. Your statement…”but the Selfie Church doesn’t want to hear preachers like me. We are so negative, so harsh, so brash, they say, “You ruined my day! You hurt my feelings, and you made me spill my latte on my new yoga pants!” is so TRUE!

My wife’s 98 year old Aunt Katherine died this July and we attended the services. Her young preacher…gave a nice eulogy. At the dinner afterwards…I went to him and thanked him for nice service and for ministering to Aunt Katherine in her last days. Somehow…don’t remember how the conversation got steered there…but I told him I believed in the spiritual gifts…tongues…prophesy…healing…miracles & etc. and that we were about to see an outpouring of these gifts. He looked straight at me told me that “you would not be welcome to attend this church.” He had written a “thesis” about how spiritual gifts had died with the Apostles! I didn’t say it…but I was sure thinking it…no way would I ever attend your church!

God is raising up ordinary men and women in this hour to be the end-times church which will be a return to the original model of the church in the Book of Acts. We will be very deceived if we are following anyone solely on the basis of college degrees/ education/etc.

We are responsible for discernment on our own. Each truly born again believer has true authority in Christ and doesn’t need the leadership of a “learned” man. We are called “Kings and Priests” in the Holy Scriptures and we have DIRECT ACCESS to Jesus. That’s why the Veil to the Holy of Holies in the Temple was torn from top to bottom (an estimated 18″ thick) at the moment of Jesus’ death/finished work on the cross.

Scott,
Yes, his REASONING. The reasoning mind is not capable on its own of grasping the things of the Spirit. They originate in the heart/Spirit man. They are BEYOND the reasoning mind (which is so glorified in our culture). {That is not to say that the Holy Spirit cannot enlighten the mind, because He can.}

I didn’t go into deep debate…because I already knew he was wrong. But his quick reasoning was that spiritual gifts were only given to the Apostles and those specifically mentioned at the time of the Resurrection. Everything else is not proven thus false.

How very sad. We will need the Spiritual gifts of everyone possible to make it in these final days (and everyone that is born again has at least one of the nine gifts). The gifts are ultimately for the edification of the Body of Christ.

We will be a very weak Body without them!

Wonderful message and I have been attacked because the Words that are given to me are always judgment is falling now and that He is going to purge, cleanse and get rid of the filth in this nation. They want to hear the itchy ear preaching that all is getting better when it is not!! Man cannot fix anything and We need the Father to do so!!! I got so tired of hearing that we, who tell the truth, are all doom & gloom when the doom & gloom is not what we tell them. Truth is refreshing and not doom and gloom!! There is redemptive power in humility. there is a new kingdom coming and a restoration but first all these judgments shall take place! I have been telling people forget your physical house but prepare your spiritual house for that is of utmost importance in this day and hour. We need to prepare and stock up with food and water now too but getting right with Yahweh is what should be first and foremost on their minds and your first priority!! Time is short and REPENTANCE necessary!!! anyone who cannot see that this nation is getting worse not better either has been turned over to the lies they believe by the Father or they love to live in denial. The lukewarm people need to choose wisely now. You can’t have one foot in the world now and one foot in the church. It is one or the other. Better to be hot or cold than lukewarm. It states He will spew them out of his mouth like vomit. So I pray that people choose wisely now because I, too, wish that we all make it in the end and that we stand strong in this hour!!

Pastor Faircloth, I want to give confirmation of what you wrote about not being able to fast and pray our way out of this. As you know, my family left the US a little over a year ago. During this past year, we have been constantly thinking, watching, reading and praying about what is happening in America and the rest of the world. A few months ago, I took a little nap when I put my kids down. When I woke up but was still in a dream-like state, my mind wandered to a time when I was a young Christian. I went through a tremendous trial that included a court trial where my parents & others testified against me trying to convince the court that I was crazy because of my Christian faith. It looked as if I was winning this trial during this first phase, and there was a time lapse before the second phase. I got impatient for the final trial as it weighed heavily on me daily, and it was emotionally draining. After several months, I was told I had a new court date, but my case was 2nd alternate. My lawyer was pretty sure that the primary case was going to be a go. For anyone who has been involved with court, you will know that the two cases ahead of me had to be cancelled in order for my case to be heard. Otherwise, it would be at least a couple more months before my case could get on the docket again. I decided I was going to fast and pray and BELIEVE God to move those first two cases aside so that mine would become primary. I fasted, and I prayed specifically that my case would move to the primary slot. And guess… Read more »

Under the New Covenant we don’t ever have to beg God for anything. He did it all at Calvary. Fasting is a good way of getting focused on God. Prayer chains and much intersession today is not part of our new and better covenant though few will agree.

Shalom Pastor Benjamin Faircloth. This post confirms a lot of what God has been telling me as well and bears witness of why God has chosen you. Thank you for being faithful to your calling and Gods word. I don’t know you other than reading what you have written here on Z3 but I have a word from the father for you as confirmation of what he told you long ago.

“Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

Pastor the Lord showed me that he is going to increase your influence exponentially and he is going to allow you to enter places that have been closed off too you.. because he has been saving it for a time such as this. There will be a short intense battle but it is of the kind that you have overcome before. He has also told me that you should be open to partnerships because there is strength in numbers. God Bless you servant of the Most High 

I have felt in my spirit that we are very close to end times events since 2013, and each year it gets stronger. It is very strong this year. It reminds me of giving birth. I have had 4 babies. You feel all this pressure, and yet, that baby doesn’t appear for your eyes to see till the last minute. These last day events must happen soon because I can feel the pressure in the spirit very strongly. It is overwhelming sometimes just to get through the day. Something has got to give eventually.

Simple observation of the situation at hand reveals the nature of the tyranny that has come down upon our nation. It must be the effect of a deceptive spirit upon the church for the obvious to be ignored by the masses… Be of good cheer, though, saints. We are living in a time like no other!

Mike I totally agree! The demonic deception is so thick and most of the church isn’t fighting it or even aware that it needs to be fought. Really, that is what part of the meaning of being an overcomer in the letters to the 7 churches in Revelation chapters 2 & 3 refers to. We have to conquer and overcome the lies of the devil! Ken, I do agree that I need to totally hand my family over to the Lord and I have my parents. I wanted to reach out one more time to my brother and now I am done. Of course over the past year I have said that a few times….lol….and then a few months go by and I try to reach them again. That will be the beauty of judgment becoming obvious; maybe those we tried desperately to warn will finally understand. Praying hard for all those who claim to love Jesus to have their spiritual eyes opened…..whatever it takes!!

Tammy I encourage you to never give up on your family. My family prayed for my older brother to walk with Christ for 35 years – my dad leading the way. Dad ended up with cancer and passed away this past January. An hour before he passed away, he motioned for my brother to come close. He couldn’t speak but my sister and I heard in the spirit that dad wanted him to pray with and for dad. Dad nodded yes. My brother prayed out loud the first time we ever remembered. My sister then heard in the spirit that dad wanted to pass the torch to him as the oldest son. Again dad nodded in agreement and my brother accepted the mantle as spiritual head of the family. Dad smiled and went home shortly thereafter. I say all this to say that sometimes it seems like we can pray for something for a long, long time…and then in the right situation God moves in an instant – and all of a sudden the thing we never thought would happen comes to pass.

I also have spirit-filled friends that don’t seem to be hearing the judgment message. My wife and I listened to Pastor Neville Johnson’s 7th session sermon at the Lancaster Prophetic Conference and it gave me some insight into this and the current condition of the Bride of Christ – it is on YouTube I would highly suggest checking it out. 2 hours well spent!

Much love sister praying for you.

Mike, I WILL NOT give up on my family and I do believe with all my heart they will come around during the calamities if they don’t first vote for Hillary. Mena Lee Grebin heard a word from the Lord that any “professing Christian” that willingly votes for Hillary will be blinded from Bible prophecy so I do believe that this issue is time sensitive. If one is blinded then I would be concerned about them taking the mark of the beast. Me and two friends were driving around our town on Friday night and praying for our town and they both received insight from the Lord, at the very same moment, that they believe my parents would not be able to vote on voting day from something; sickness, car troubles etc. Even though I feel hopeful for my family, I am so sad about the good my dad could have done in our city because of the enormous love the town has for him if ONLY he would have had the RIGHT MESSAGE like Pastor Faircloth. That is hard for me.

All my life I struggled with the meaning of Revelation 3: 15-16. I thought why would Jesus rather us be cold than lukewarm……..oh boy!!!! I get it now!!! The people that have been Christians their whole life can be so entrenched with thinking they know everything and they don’t! It would be so much easier talking to someone that knew nothing about Christ and his message of redemption than someone that thinks his blood covers all including willful, habitual sin. Our God is so good because I finally really, really understand why he will spew the lukewarm out.

I will listen to Session 7, thank you, brother.
