The Holy Spirit Speaks an Analogy
For the Times We Are In - Pastor Stephen
January 1, 2021
From the Scripture - The Road to Emmaus
For the Disillusioned at this Time:
Turn to Luke 24:13-35
In the midst of turmoil, two travelers, disillusioned by the death of Christ, whom they thought would be their "Savior"....
"And He said to them (Jesus who appeared to them though they did not recognize Him) 'What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?"
The word sad here really means "mourning with anger"
(This is how those who hoped and believed Trump would win the election feel right now)
Verse 21 ..."We were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem
Israel..." (We were hoping Trump would be used by God to deliver this country out of its sinful state) NOTE: No, This does not mean we were idolizing Trump and not looking to God. It means we were looking to the one God called to lead this country out of its sin.
Verse 25 ... "(Jesus).. O foolish ones and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! (the church is in foolishness because they are without proper discernment on things that had to take place)
Verse 29 ... Jesus was going to leave them but they constrained Him...
they wanted to abide with Him more ...
(Those that pray and want to remain a longer time in His Presence
through devotions will receive needed revelation)
Verse 35... "Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread and blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. (communion) Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight."
(It takes spending time communing with God to gain the proper discernment and understanding of what God is doing at this time and why He has allowed this to happen.)
God is doing a great work just as He did then, but Jesus had to die for it to be accomplished. While on earth working His great works Jesus did great things... (as did Trump in office) Now he is "crucified" and it looks like all is lost, but God will do more through His death to self than through his life in the flesh, and all mankind will be affected.

"I saw you gaze My way, says the Lord, and yet your eyes lacked life and love for Me. What shall I do for those who have eyes to see, yet do not look to Me, says the Lord?
I will respond to those who look to Me with favor, but those who seem to look but do not perceive, I will look past them

11/8/20 Sunday Service - Pastor Stephen
"A black mark has been placed against the great nation, as well as God's house in it. Still, I have a plan to rescue the righteous from the trouble being set against the great nation. I am establishing a relief effort that is now underway. The righteous in My house plead for salvation, but men who are strange to Me do not want relief - They will reject it. These strange men do not want glory coming to Me for this nation's salvation. - Word of the Lord / August 2020
This word was received with no thought of the election.
Word of the Lord 9/8/20 Pastor Stephen
"Will there be a strong wind from the East? More likely than not. And this wind will push the fires westward from coast to coast says the Lord."
Note: The East Wind in the Bible is representative of God's judgment...(Gen. 41:27) (Ezek. 17:10) (Ps. 48:7) (Job 27:21)
(Is. 27:8) (Jonah 4:8)...
Word of the Lord 7/22/20 Pastor Stephen Wells
"The money changers will be left to themselves until the time of the end causing their practices to be judged.
But the Lord is about to bless the Bride who has prepared herself for this hour. In our time the Lord is going to shatter the courtyard practices in His house where backroom deals are more important than worship and faith."

The Reckoning is Here
"Men will see a fire in the sky and the hearts of men will melt away in fear and I will know who has faith says the Lord. Do not be afraid says the Lord. I will cause faith to rise up and capture the fire so many will know that I am the Lord God. Because of this every heart of faith will be changed so that I may know who to come for, so I may know those who may be taught My way, that I should lead them in the path of righteousness.... Tell My people, My rule is coming."
Open Vision - June 21st 2020 Pastor Stephen Wells
I was told a prophet shall arise in the house of the Lord. Little notice will be given to the prophet for he will be found in the back of a great house. Then as the prophet is noticed he will be given a staff, and some notable voices will call for the prophet.
When he makes his way forward to speak in the great house he will stand before the people and slam the staff to the ground and the carpet in the great house will be torn. Then the prophet will speak and say:
''This is what the Lord says, I will cause a rip to come upon this nation and My house. On the right side of the rip will stand the humble and on the left will stand the proud. The humble to the right of the rip in the ground will be raised up. But the proud who stand on the left of the rip...they shall be forgotten by Me says the Lord.'
In the great house fear came upon the people, but because they were not used to showing reverence to the Lord, they had to be shown that those who are for them are greater than those who are against them. So their eyes were opened to the angels of the army of God. Then the Lord said, 'Now the numbering of days has begun.'
Notation: The Great House mentioned here is the church. And here is the scripture reference: 2 Timothy 2:20-21
"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work."
