23. And They Shall Nourish Her There
I purpose to set before you this reality as well. This is the calling and the task given to Christ who is your life - to nurture and to sustain His people in their hour of greatest need. You have the power inside of you, you have the wisdom inside of you, you have the authority inside of you to command the heavens and the earth to yield all that is needed by the power of the Spirit moving through faith.
23. And They Shall Nourish Her There
And they shall nourish her there. Revelation 12:6 (KJV)
A great temptation the enemy throws at ministers of the gospel is to make them feel that they need to “defend the truth.” Here’s how it works. A minister of the gospel sees wonderful truth in the New Covenant. He ministers that truth and people receive it, hearing it themselves from the Lord. But some do not hear God speaking, they just hear words, and they counter back against that minister with words of their own. They may use actual verses from the Bible to contradict the words they heard or read, or they may just use innuendo and invective to speak against, in one way or another, the words that they heard this minister say.
Remember, this is always true. Two believers can sit side by side listening to the same preacher. One can hear God speak by the Holy Spirit inside of them alongside the words the preacher is saying. The other just hears (or reads) words and ideas coming from the preacher. Those words may be “interesting” or something to talk about, but in the end, just human words and ideas.
Those who hear God speak, hear Him speak in all things. Those who hear or read words and ideas cannot hear God in anything. But they like to throw things back at the preacher.
So the minister of the gospel feels an urgent need to “defend” the truth, to preach the next time he gets up (or writes a letter) at those who spoke against the word God spoke. This is the trap, and sadly, many Christian ministers fall for it. I appreciate your prayers for me that I will not fall into this snare of the enemy. Yet every assault of the enemy against me serves only to strengthen Christ revealed in me. The serpent always defeats himself.
It is my desire to speak with clarity of heart the word God gives me to share without reference to anyone except those who also hear God speaking to them personally and intimately, concerning the present revelation of Jesus Christ.
All hell is about to be let loose on this planet. I’m not prophesying; this is not an “end-time” prophecy. I am simply speaking normal reality of the history of man upon this planet and in the church age.
The systems of technology and finance that bring us all our earthly sustenance cannot survive. They are incredibly fragile and must break.
That is normal human history. Only this time, you and I cannot get our life out of the ground. And we are surrounded by millions of people who don’t even know that their food comes out of the ground.
More than that, we are witnessing the United States of America commit and finalize the greatest act of theft in all the history of human wickedness. It’s happening before our eyes. I am speaking of the devalution of the counterfeit currency called the “dollar” that we have used to extract the labor of the rest of the world for our own consumption. As we devalue the dollar, all the “dollars” we have given others for the products of their labor will become worthless. In the real world, it is called theft.
And the intention of the American people to follow that greatest act of theft with the greatest act of murder (unleashing our wicked weapons of mass destruction against innocent billions) in all the history of the human race is also happening before our eyes.
And the terrible, terrible part of all this is that these acts of consummate evil are coming out of the same people that cry “God bless America,” that claim that America is the “exceptional” nation because America has a “covenant” with God. They cover the evil over by saying, “Oh, think only good thoughts about America to bless it; those who speak against the evil are causing the problem.”
Sounds just like those who spoke against God all through the Bible!
God shows us this present reality in the gospel so clearly. The harlot is not one who does not know Jesus. The harlot is one who sleeps with Jesus and who sleeps with His enemy and who calls both Christ and anti-Christ one and the same.
Yet that harlot is dearly beloved of our Savior. And He makes it very clear that His people, His dearly beloved, those who belong to Him and are close to His heart LIVE and MOVE and have their being inside that harlot.
Jesus is engaged to be married to a prostitute. He loves her, and He will win her for Himself. But she is still a prostitute, and the passage of her cleansing is not an easy passage.
The time is now.
Jesus said, “You will not see Me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’” These words have great importance. Not one person on this earth will see Jesus until they accept that He comes to them in all reality through another. Jesus was talking about the natural Jew when He spoke, that they will not see Him until they are ready to accept that they are not the “chosen ones,” that another who does not claim to be a Jew is the embodiment of their Messiah coming to them. But in the gospel, this truth is expanded to include all who do not see Christ in themselves or in their brother.
One of my students asked, “Mr. Yordy, what would you do if Jesus walked through that door?” I said, “He has.” He didn’t like that answer; no one likes that answer.
Isaiah put that same truth this way, that Zion will marry her sons.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Bridegroom. Christ is my life; I have no other life. I — Daniel Yordy — am the bridegroom. I am not the bride; I am the bridegroom. (Put your own name in the blank.)
You see, it’s not me, it’s Christ. Only I’m still alive, only it’s not me, it’s Christ. There is no separation between Him and me. He reveals Himself in all that He is through me. That is the gospel. There is no other gospel taught in the New Testament. “Back then, up there, some day” is not a New Testament teaching.
You shall not see Me again until you say, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”
The church of Jesus Christ is about to go through the worst trauma in her existence, a trauma worse than the persecutions of Domitian or Diocletian, worse than the Black Plague, worse than the horrors of religious war or of Communist slaughter. Those who presently deny the truth of that reality will themselves be in shell shock as it happens. All of these things I named happened to those who loved Jesus during the church age. Has history changed for the sake of the most pampered and spoiled generation ever to walk on this earth just because they are spoiled and pampered? I doubt it.
I am not interested in debating the issue; history is clear and nothing has changed to make the present day “different.” All that God speaks revealed through us will alter history, but positive thinking that covers over evil acts will not.
My eyes are upon the beloved of the Lord Jesus Christ, His woman. She is a prostitute. She runs back and forth, giving her heart to Jesus, than pledging that same heart to the kingdoms of Satan in this world, back and forth, back and forth. She is polluted and unclean.
And He loves her. The One who fills my heart loves her.
She is marching inexorably towards her execution. Satan hates her, and his hatred fills the hearts of those who belong to him, who govern this world behind the scenes. I read the plans of evil men written over a century ago, plans to murder the woman who belongs to Jesus. I look at the present news and see those plans in full fruition, exactly as they said.
And I see her oblivious to the evil men who lure her to her destruction. Satan does not want just to kill the bride. He wants to entice her into committing the greatest acts of sin against God that can be committed, all the while “believing” that she’s “with God.” (I’m speaking of using weapons of mass destruction to murder in order to “preserve America’s life.”)
God Himself says, in the gospel, that these things would be so.
Many people prefer to be ignorant of reality, believing what they hear from the image of the Beast, especially Fox News. There is no time for that. My care and concern is only for the Bride, the woman who belongs to Jesus and who is more precious to Him and who is in greater danger than she understands.
Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Revelation 12:13-14
By the grace of God, this is my calling. If it is not your calling, that’s wonderful. You have a gift from God that is created just for you. This is my calling, and I will speak to it and to those who share the same calling with me.
If you do not understand this calling, at the least don’t speak against it. We will need this protection and this provision to come to us through those who “nourish her there,” along with all others who belong to Jesus.
We cannot feed ourselves. Nor will there be food while millions around us are starving to death, nor can we keep ourselves safe from the surveillance and the shock-troops of the Beast. And yes, people are being rounded up in America without cause right now. Just because it’s not on the television news does not mean it’s not happening. Things are changing so fast that even those who cling to blindness can no longer deny it.
We will have three choices. We will either accept the control of the Beast over us in order to survive, or we will die, or we will draw our life out of the heavens as the gospel provides, bringing the kingdom of God into full reality in this earth in all that the New Testament speaks.
The crisis we presently face is entirely by God’s intention. If God did not give us no choice, we would tootle along in our present in-part experience of the kingdom, believing that the entire kingdom is ours now, but never actually birthing the reality of Christ upon this earth.
Judas was a blessing sent from God. If he had not betrayed the Lord Jesus to His death, we would not know salvation. Jesus understood Judas’s critical role perfectly. If the Pharisees had not opposed Jesus all the way to murder, we would not know the kingdom of God. Our salvation depended entirely on open and brutal opposition to Christ.
So it is today. The kingdom of God requires total and open opposition to bring forth its full life and reality upon the earth. People really object to that reality, claiming it’s not the “grace of God,” but I find the pages of the Bible presenting that reality in every possible way.
I believe the word given to Annie Schissler – Ed Miller’s spiritual daughter. Let me repeat parts of one of her visions here. This is the same vision I gave in full earlier in this volume. It is worth reading over and over.
The Wave of Pure Light
God showed me a new and extraordinary wave of heavenly pure light and life that He is accumulating to prepare the manifestation of the Great Harvest, that will develop underneath the storm of evil which is forming . . .
He showed me how this new wave operated: there were like gigantic arms that collected in an increasing scale countless multitudes of souls for Christ. In amazing operations of God, in great power and strength, thousands and millions were taken for Him.
However, there were differences between the levels and conditions of these souls that the wave of light had reaped regarding the elect ones who walked above the storm. The elect ones were obviously superior in development and light, but despite their inferior condition, the souls that gathered under the storm were more numerous and were equally precious to the Lord and He was especially interested in the harvest of these multitudes. With great joy and power He was intensively working to fulfill this.
The inferior condition of the new ones was detectable not by their appearance, but by their relationship with God. Those who walked above the storm had a very intimate relationship with Him, characterized by a great intensity, as if they were linked with the same fires and torrents of the divine nature.
When the new ones took abundant blessings from God, it was due to the fact that they rebounded from His chosen ones. The blessing of one had an impact as a blessing for another one . . .
The ones who were under the storm, though they received great provision of light and life that God shed, nonetheless they were allowed to be moved, shaken and buffeted. However, through this, it would be provided the way in which the Lord would mold, transform and develop them. On the contrary, those who were above the storm of darkness, that is, the elect ones could not be shaken as they were rooted and asserted in their relationship with Christ
He told me that these sons that would give way to this new wave, must be extremely purified. This purification is of fundamental importance, not only for themselves, but also for these new ones that will be gathered. This high, complete purification of the elect ones is equivalent to the opening of the doors inside them that will rebound in a force of great life and light to those thousands that are still in darkness.
To me, this vision is full confirmation to the sense of calling I have carried in my heart since age 21 to be this provision of God for His precious people caught under a storm they cannot comprehend. Let me point out that this “harvest” is not necessarily of people who are not Christians today. Certainly it includes many that are not Christians, but this is a fullness-of-Christ word. Most Christians, though they have tasted the Lord in a tiny measure, have yet to enter into Christ. They also are part of this final great harvest.
And so I purpose to set before you this reality as well. This is the calling and the task given to Christ who is your life – to nurture and to sustain His people in their hour of greatest need. You have the power inside of you, you have the wisdom inside of you, you have the authority inside of you to command the heavens and the earth to yield all that is needed by the power of the Spirit moving through faith.
I cannot say what that will look like outwardly; I have no such knowledge. But I know the calling layed upon me by God; and right now, I will speak to this greatest of all needs in the history of the church.
God will send all provision and all sustenance and all life and light and anointing – THROUGH His elect to His beloved.
And THEY (we) shall nourish her there.
Isaiah said it this way: “Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.” Isaiah 66:7
We are being birthed into all the fullness of Christ – God is planting Himself, His very heart, inside of us, right at the moment of the church’s greatest need. His purpose is that we be the channel through which all provision and sustenance, all life and hope will flow from God to His beloved, caught in the confusion and darkness, not knowing her way, running and frightened and pursued by a flood of evil.
History is real. The physical world is real. At the same time, there are other elements of reality coming into the present picture that most people do not consider. But God reveals Himself inside of all of it.
This is the first part of the entrance of the kingdom of God out of the realms of Spirit and into full manifestation in all of God’s creation. God does nothing except through us, His elect, and through Christ who is our life.
The Covenant we have entered into with God is shocking in its provisions and implications. That Covenant must be fulfilled in the earth. The strongest points of that Covenant as well as all the “fine print” is binding on God and on us.
To him who overcomes I give power over the nations.
The time is now.
