This morning, one scripture kept lingering in my spirit – Ezra 10:18-43, which lists many names that were unfaithful to GOD. So, I asked GOD, “LORD, I don’t understand. Why are you showing me these lists of names?”
Initially, I read Ezra chapter 10 on December 24th. But because the Spirit of the LORD kept bringing up the above verses to my attention on the morning of December 25th, I had to reread those verses. So, I reread verses 18 through 43 to try to grasp why the LORD was poking me with these verses. After I read it, the LORD starts to speak to me with great details about the season and time we are in. As HE was speaking to me, Felicia came into the room after she was done with her morning prayer to share with me, what the LORD spoke to her, which was right in line with where the LORD was leading me. I could not help but acknowledge, OH MY GOD, it is really time.
So, in this blog, I am sharing excerpts from the things GOD spoke to Prophetess Felicia Crawford and myself. Then later this week, if GOD willing, I plan to release excerpts of prophetic words Felicia spoke concerning this very hour.
the transgression of men
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light” (Ephesians 5:11-14, NKJV).
First, let’s turn to 1 Chronicles 12:32. It reads in part.
Of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do….
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
We cannot be blinded to what is happening around us, especially in the church. Because King Solomon explains it this way.
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.
“There is an appointed time of men to go through…. You have to understand the season and time so you will know what is required of the time – the purpose of the time.”
He fell in slow-mo. As I watched, two things stood out.
- He fell on his right side and after he fell, I noticed that this pastor, who is always seen wearing his glasses, was not wearing his glasses.
- Then when I went to look at the face of the fallen pastor, I noticed his eyes were closed.
(Now, I understand what this meant, but I won’t share it here.)
I will close with this. At 1 Corinthians chapter 5, starting with verse 1, it reads
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles—that a man has his father’s wife! And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Deliver such one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus (1 Corinthians 5:5).
… Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I delivered to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme (1 Timothy 1:20).
- These ones, in GOD’s timing, were exposed by name for their evil deeds. Why? So, GOD’s people would know without doubt, who they need to separate ties from. We should not connect ourselves to, in any form or fashion, partner with, or support the ministry, business, or other activities of such ones. Remember, Korah and his supporters and their great fall (Numbers 16). It was not just Korah who fell because of his deeds of disobedience. But all those associated with him, that stood with him – those that were loyal to Korah to a fault to his plight, that supported Korah’s mission, that partnered with him, and defended Korah’s position.
- The deliverance of an offender to Satan refers to excommunication. Paul states it this way in 1 Corinthians 6:15-18. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.
As GOD reveals what is hidden because of the season of the times, we are in, we must appropriately respond to what GOD is revealing to us. We cannot afford to do so in disbelief because it involves men or women of GOD who are likable, whom we respect, love, or have special relations with. For it is time for GOD’s unveiling of what is hidden. (Compare to Ezekiel 8:6-18; Mark 4:21-22; Hebrews 4:13). For GOD will uncover deep things out of darkness and bring the shadow of death to light (Job 12:22).
So, choose wisely.
The word of the lord
When the LORD God gives a word, it is for the sole purpose to teach, reproof, correct, or train His servants - His Body, so that every member within the Body of Christ may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17). For the LORD has given the Body of Christ apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip the Saints for the work of service, to encourage one another, and to build up the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Thessalonians 5:11).
This page will focus on providing the Body of Christ words of the LORD, that He has spoken through Deaidre. Regardless of the nature of the words of the LORD below - whether there is a word that teaches, reproofs, corrects, or trains, it is all for the purpose to build up the Body of Christ so that each one of us is made righteous, adequate, equipped for every good work.
