God’s given this message in response to the many prayers being submitted for strength and courage in this hour. This post will be a little longer than normal as the Lord wants His people to prepare their hearts for what’s now at the door.
There’s much fear and trembling in the camp of God. Many, having put their trust in the arm of the flesh; and watching it fail, are awakening to the fact a veil of deception was indeed cast over the church as a whole (see ‘Do Not Leave Your Stations’).
Yes, our God’s sovereign over all; and He sets up kings and brings them down (Dan. 2:21). But He shares His glory with NO man! A hard truth is that God indeed gives us the desire of our heart. Sadly, the desire of the Church has been for God to send a human king to deliver her; to protect and ease discomforts so we can resume our “normal” lives in the midst of this wicked generation.
Saints, it’s time to examine our hearts before God. Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world, and neither are His people. If we truly want the Kingdom of God established on the earth, then our cry will be for THE King of kings and Lord of lords to return and be seated upon His throne!
But as stated above, there’s much fear and trembling in the camp of God as events unfold around the earth. Much of this fear is because many know they are not ready, and asking, “How am I to handle what’s coming?”
Brethren, beginning the middle of December, 2020, the Holy Spirit’s repeatedly told me,
“She Will Be Made Ready!”
The Lord’s referring to His Remnant Church, the spiritual temple of God on the earth. He will finish His work in Her. In December, 2019, I was awakened with these words:
“There Will Be No More Delays!”
“My Temple is made without human hands.”
“I am going to fill My Temple with My Glory!”
This is a very reassuring and exciting Word. The Lord’s telling us His Temple will be made ready, and He’s going to come suddenly and fill it with His glory!
Saints, a final cleansing/purification must now take place to prepare the Temple to receive His Glory, just as was done in Israel’s day in the preparation of the physical temple. Soon coming events and situations will act as catalysts to ignite the “fire” needed to burn up remaining impurities and dross within His temple.
The Lord’s spoken to me for some time, that the day would come when certain leaders within the “church,” which are nothing more than modern day Pharisees, will mislead their congregations and twist the meaning of Romans 13. Friends, that day is upon us!
We know judgment begins with the house of God. A dividing line has been drawn by God, and the division has begun! It appears a major “plumb line” is going to be: are Christians to obey the government(s) of this world – or God?
Paul made it clear in Romans 13 that we are to be subject to governing authorities; that in fact there is no authority except from God. In verse 3 it states, rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. But what happens when such governing authorities flip this upside down and begin terrorizing the good – calling it evil, and calling evil good? As we know, this has been the case many times in history, and is encircling the globe today. The Word of God makes plain what’s to be done at such times.
Daniel and his three friends would not obey the mandates of the king to bow down to his image, nor pray to it. They refused to obey the governing authority at the risk of losing their lives. Throughout the New Testament, and to this day, when the followers of Jesus do NOT obey the governing authorities to stop teaching and speaking in the name of Jesus, they oftentimes face dire consequences of imprisonment and/or martyrdom. In Acts 5:27-29, Peter sums it up by saying we’re to OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MAN.
This division in the church is coming fast and hard, and there will be no middle ground. As it was, so will it be again. The modern pharisees will again be moved with fear of having their empires taken – because of these “radicals” rocking the boat and turning the world upside down (Acts 17:6). These religious leaders will be used as mouth pieces of the devil, preaching obedience and submission to the kingdom of darkness. But praise be to our God; His sheep hear HIS VOICE, and the voice of another they will NOT follow!
As the Remnant rise up and walk in the ways of Jesus, they’ll obey God rather than man; they’ll speak as they hear Him speak, and do as they see Him do; because as he is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
SIGNS AND WONDERS WILL FOLLOW!
As the fire of persecution comes against the Saints worldwide, God’s people will soon cry out to Him as never before! We’ll echo the prayer of the first century disciples as the fire raged against them:
“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” Acts 4:29-30
After they prayed this prayer, the building was shaken and they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they went out and SPOKE THE WORD WITH BOLDNESS!
As they went forth preaching the Word, the Lord confirmed the word with signs following (Mark 16:20). Oftentimes, great multitudes and entire towns were converted after witnessing the miracles.
The Lord wants to encourage His people in this hour. We’re being told to prepare our hearts for great deception, division, and persecution as judgment falls upon the house of God. The coming events will act as a final fire to complete the purification and cleansing of His spiritual temple – preparing Her to be filled with His Glory!
It’s through this fire that God assures us, “She Will Be Made Ready!”
The following word from the Lord was spoken to me back in January, 2017. It was given not only to encourage His people, but provide vital instructions for what’s now at the door:
“Proclaim MY Righteousness!”
“The birth pains will soon begin.”
“During the pains, I AM your focal point.”
“Keep your eyes focused ONLY on Me!”
“After each, you must draw ever closer to Me.”
“Seek My will in preparation for the next.”
“I will keep you perfectly aligned for what’s coming.”
“Do not be concerned about anything – just look to Me.”
“Other people’s lives will depend on your focus. I AM entrusting you with the lives of many.”
Saints, we will not be able to handle what’s coming by our own power or might, but only by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). As we press in and lean completely upon the Lord, keeping our eyes focused only on Him, we’ll be made ready, and used in the greatest harvest of souls ever to hit the planet!
Yes, darkness is encircling the earth and now descending. But it’s all part of the process, as we are meant to rise above the darkness!
“Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.” (Isa 60:1) Brethren, this is now at the door!
Please pray for further revelation and instruction. I’ve attached several posts below which not only talk about the final acts of the Church, but give Biblical instructions for seeking intimacy with God.

Diana Pulliam has been a Christian since the age of 22, but it wasn’t until 2008, while going through an especially trying time, that she asked God what He intended for her life. She told Him she wanted her life to give Him glory, but didn’t see how it was making any difference at all for His kingdom. She asked Him to not hold anything back, she wanted everything He intended for her, and was willing to do whatever He told her to do.
Two weeks later, during her quiet time with the Lord, she heard the Holy Spirit say, “Clean your house and write.” The last few years, He has given her dreams and visions about the times in which we live. In 2011, she started the blog The Mighty Hand of God as a place to write whatever the Lord inspires.
