Prophetic Word through Pam Clark 7-26-11

There are things in the Church that God is changing. Much of the old church system is being torn down. People are leaning on “the structure” more than the Lord.

This is a revolutionary time. What worked in past ministry is not going to work right now. Filters have been created that have skewed the View. Faith will not be through people as much as it will be through prayer.

God wants us to “get real” and stretch and lean on HIS Creativity. Hearts are being tested as never before. The test is not about “us” but is about Him. Do we really perceive Him the way HE wants us to perceive Him? The enemy has been seeking to hijack and short circuit many things to confuse and render impotent the true powers and Plan of God, but he will not succeed.

God is stripping many to make them call upon His Power, His ways, and His Life. It is really His offering of Love and Anointing to us.

Some people are going through financial battles, some people are going through physical battles or even family and reputation battles.

We cry, “Where are you God?” and He says “I am within you.” Too many are looking for power in a social context. The power within will manifest without.

People are looking for the outward signs and God is correcting that. This stripping is a blessing. Here you will find that His Kingdom holds, and it delivers.

It delivers The Promise! 

Here you will find people who really do (or really don’t) believe as you do. Here the scourge of opinions will singe your heart and soul. But you will find that God still remains.

Is God doing this to hurt you? No, He is doing this to help you. He is doing this to reach you. 

God is preparing us for Visitation. He is looking for a people to manifest through, and He wants the manifestation as real as our cries are to Him for it to be Real. 

Our desperation moves His Heart. He wants to meet us but He cannot compromise who He is.  His Order establishes the Heaven and the Earth.  We are firm and secure in Him. 

When all that can be shaken is shaken, we will still remain…  Because our lives are kept in Him, because we have chosen that. 

It is Betrothal!  Let the Romance begin! 

When the Beloved calls out to her Bridegroom and He responds, it will be pure faith. Not hyped up, not pumped up, not gimmicked up, or even slicked up. 

Oh what a wonder to behold this Bride of His. She mystifies the world with this supernatural Relationship where all of earth and creation responds to her. 

God wants to bring Heaven to Earth.  He will bring Heaven to Earth!  It belongs to Him!

He will claim and reclaim what is and has been His all along. 

We limp and think things are okay. We have fallen so short. But He will restore, restore, restore!

And all creation will praise Him for the wonderful God that He is.

Without A Wedding Garment

So many people are noticing and commenting on the shift God has just taken the Church. Things are changing, things are being re-aligned, and the recent does not fit like it did before.

In some areas, it is troubling and in other areas it is refreshing. But those who are prophetically “tuned” see it and observe and consider the changes, knowing that even more change has been prophesied and will come.

For years people have become disillusioned and even disappointed in the Church as we have known it. Sin has been exposed, betrayers seemed to win, thefts occured and offenses have been many.

It has disturbed a lot of people, and many have dropped out of church life altogether. Some have stood back at a distance, working to avoid the bitterness they were feeling in their hearts. They didn’t want to lose God; they wanted to find, seek, see and feel what is REAL. They wanted to reject the false.

But it seemed everywhere they looked for the real leadership left them more and more disappointed. People pulled back on their giving. They wanted to believe these mega promises were coming in, but some of the “pulls” were coming off a little too Madison Avenue rather than the Highway of Holiness.

Sacrifice in the right way is good. The Lord says, “Gather My saints together to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.” (Psalm 50:5 NKJV) It’s a mark on the heart that God sees with Spirit eyes.

But many through disappointment and discouragement have stopped giving their “love gifts” to God. The reason was that they did not want to be yoked to the wrong spirits. Some were even angry at God and hurt and wounded.

It has not been easy, it has not been pretty and honestly, there is more to come. But don’t present yourself to God without a wedding garment!

Matthew 22:
1 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said:
2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son,
3 “and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.
4 “Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.”‘
5 “But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business.
6 “And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them.
7 “But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy.
9 ‘Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’
10 “So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.
12 “So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.
13 “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

God still has need of you, even if He is tearing down the walls of the structured and rebellious church! Are you seeing Him or seeing a man? Will man be your excuse to turn away from God?

Or have you heard His Voice enough to use your heart, mind, soul, and strength to obey His will? Because people have pulled back, our country is in a financial crisis. It started because of sowing wrongly, and we can be deceived, but much of that is now being exposed and will continue to be exposed.

As it says in Joel 2: 13-14, “So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him; A grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord your God?”

If we don’t give an offering to what is right and good, we have not honored Him in a way that He can bless. We must be like Job who even in crisis said, “Blessed be the Name of the Lord.” Job, even in his trial, had to offer a sacrifice to the Lord and pray for things to turn around for him.

We may not be able to control the timing, but we can control the outcome if we still look to Him. If you allow bitterness to swallow you up, you will not be able to praise Him and encounter His Presence. “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3 KJV)

At this critical time, if you give to truth, you will receive and be established in truth. But if you give in to lies and disillusionment, you will be established in that and it is no comfortable place to be!

The enemy of our soul has been on a campaign to make you believe that wrong is right and right is wrong. Did you fall for the lie? If you just give in to it, it is to your hurt.

There is a wedding going on and you must have the right garment on to be accepted.
