Released 2006 Theresa Harvard Johnson

There have been a number of messages over the past few months that decree prophetic warnings for God's people. I do pray we are all listening and clearly understanding what God is saying and doing here in the spiritual realm. Often he's speaking to us individually ... but I find that within Salt and Fire, he is also equipping us - training us in the spirit realm to be attentive to the times and seasons in which we walk. For months now, my spirit has been focused on "God's direction" for the body. I believe that if we can hear with our spiritual ears , we will see that God is preparing us ... part by part, step by step, line by line for Christ's return ... and end time ministry.

God is equipping the remnant right now. He's building holiness and sanctification in the hearts of those who are "HIS" -- not those who think they are his, but those who know without a doubt that if Christ came right now ... they would be raptured. He's buildng a people who will KNOW him not only as his manifested presence as the trinity ... but also as his presence as GOD - the God that smites and the God of wrath. As prophets, we must always been in a position to ACCURATELY determine where we STAND as a UNIFIED BODY in the SPIRIT realm ....

As I thought about the posts here over the past few months ... God showed me THREE recurring themes:

1. A pull into prayer that leads us to self examination, sanctification and holiness.

2. A plea for unity in the body, and the manifestation of salt and light in our lives to shield us from walking into apostasy, lawlessness, or being mislead by false doctrine.

3. To build in our hearts an understanding of what it means to grasp the FULL SPIRITUAL NATURE of God - nothing more, nothing less. All of these prophetic words and messages BUILD UP the body of Christ and TEAR down the world. Anytime the word pierces us, the spirit of offense will rise. The key is ... not letting it dwell there. When we speak and prophesy ... we're not saying anythinig different from the scriptures. If it is something different, then its not God ... simple as that. But I haven't seen that in this group, particularly from the leaders here, ... praise God.

When in doubt, we should search the word for clarity (rightfully divide it) and then pray for understanding, asking God to illuminate the word to us. Too many believers pray without a scriptural foundation and it's ineffectual. (Here me in the spirit ...)

God is setting us up. He's painting a picture for the body. So, I want to share this with you. I'm always asking the Holy Spirit where the body stands in the spirit realm? I always want to know what time and season we are in in the spirit realm. If we don't know ... how can we walk in his fullness? Sometimes we forget that that is why he established the Apostles and Prophets as the foundation of the church.

PROPHETIC WORD

THE YEAR 2006: In 2006, God began speaking to prophets about exposure in the body. He brought light to darkness. He began removing the prosperity message out of the church and revealing the spirit of entertainment behind the pulpit and church auxiliaries. We saw and are still seeing key leaders repenting for their sins, changing past behaviors and actions. We've seen God openly expose the rebellious and undercover wolves in the churches and pulpits. We've even seen some expose themselves. For all others, he has forced us into places of repentance, prayer, wailing and birthing. He's caused us to finally commit, tie and bind ourselves to him. I've heard so many leaders say and begin to walk out these statements this hyear: "I am going to serve God no matter the cost! I know this is a hard sermon to preach ... but for the gospel's sake I'm going to preach it! I'm not going to hell for anyone ... no my husband, not my children, not you mama ... not anyone! It's me and God and no one else. I'm going to stand by this prophetic word if it costs me my life! God called me as an Apostle, I don't care if anyone believes it ... I know who I am!" Prayer and personal relationship has been an INTENSIFIED focus this year, and so many believers have fallen away ... or have been separated from the fold.

But there is a small, unified remnant, that have not BOWED to Baal! This time and season was and is separating the wheat from the tares. For those who've caught on to what God is doing ... they have taken there focus away from the cares of this world, and focused on the increase in the spirit real. As a result, a radical generation of young people are being birth ... who carry the TRUE seed of end-time ministry in their bellies. That seed is planted in a ministry of NO COMPROMISE.

THE YEAR 2007: I was sharing with some other prophets in my church, and the Holy Spirit hit us so hard. God is calling forth fullness in 2007. The remnant will begin to prepare the way for the Christ's return like never before ... in this generation. The message of repentence will take a front seat. The fear and reverence for God will be restored in the heart of "HIS" people. There will be increased messages of purification, sanctification and holiness going forth. Righteousness will be preached. The book of revelations will be preached, and believers will KNOW that GOD is not only a God of peace and love, but a God of WRATH and a GOD WHO SMITES ...

The scales will fall off of the body. If you're looking for messages of prosperity that make you feel good ... LOOK SOME WHERE else ... we are not in that time and season. (Hear me in the spirit ... for those who have an ear ....) Itching ears WILL NOT be satisfied by this remnant, and you will know them by their fruit. I kept hearing the words ..."the first will be last and the last will be first." God is changing the guard in 2007! It's a new day! I hear the Lord saying that there will be great change in the body. The remnant will unify and possess the land.

Expect continued exposure and falling away. Expect the deception of the elect to increase as their hearts become hardened to the word of God. Expect intensification! Folks can't walk this walk or take this stand if they are not SOLD OUT for God.

THE YEAR 2008: In 2008, the Lord shared with me that the remnant would rise. Those of you who have been in preparation for this true END TIME ministry will be like trumpets sounded in a silent place. The fulfillment of this scripture will be upon your lives:

Matthew 19:27-30

27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, "See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?"

28 So Jesus said to them, "Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[k] or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.

The ministry that you have prepared for will have this savor, according to Romans 1:16-18 :

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, [a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

As Apostles and Prophets, we must discern the time and the seasons of God. So when you hear messages like REPENT, THE GOD THAT SMITES, THE GOD OF WRATH, GET YOUR HOUSE TOGETHER, INTENSIFY YOUR WARFARE .... know that you are in a PREPARATION period in which God is trying to clean us up, wake us up, share his heart, identify our dispensation, cover us, etc. He doesn't want us to be ILL-PREPARED. Truly, this is not about us ...

It is about ... preparing for the second coming of Christ! Don't you know we are still writing the book of Acts ... living out the cause of the Apostles? There was a teaching here recently where one of the Salt and Fire members were walking us through this ... understanding.

For those of you who want to be encouraged 24/7 or made to feel good or comfortable -- BRACE YOURSELVES -- because it isn't happening.

It didn't happen for the biblical patriarchs and it won't happen for us! Lean on the Holy Spirit! That's one of his functions. We must love one another ... but that love must be a chastening love when needed. God revealed to me, and I'm sure with other prophets here, that in the last day there will be two classes of saints in this end-time battle. Their entire focus will be singularly on TRUTH AND LIGHT.

1. One group will rise in the body and will be used to encourage those in the trenches by under girding them with unceasing prayers, words of encouragement and comfort according to the word. They will prophesy strength to the body and pray that their faith will not fail and that they will not faint or grow weary in their well doing. They will be mouthpieces for resources and will quiet the people as the Holy Spirit urges them. PASTORS ... many of you may be seeing these folks rise in your ministry now. I hear the Lord saying that they will come from the most unlikely sources and they will not be focused on being seen or heard by man. They will have a heart for prayer and intercession and will stand like porters at the gate.

2. The second group will rise with the gift of prophesy or the office of the prophet, and they will give GODLY direction to the body by pointing to the north, the south, the east and the west. Like the spies sent into the city, they will go before the man of God in preparation for the gospel. They warn, rebuke, correct and tear down ... and assist the apostles in rebuilding. I hear the Lord saying that they will walk - not as a single witness to the prophetic word - but with a company of prophets/apostles that their words may be judged.

In all, the Lord is saying, you will know them by their fruit. Though we can't judge the people ... we can judge the fruit.
