When faith is an idol, we believe we can’t admit we are scared or unsure or that perhaps we heard God wrong. If we do- this is unbelief and then God can’t do what we want him to do. This is a lie.
Paul tells the people that the rapture or the catching away of the church will not happen until the rebellion occurs and the Man of Lawlessness is revealed. I believe we have been in the middle of a the great falling away for several years now. Left and right people are experiencing what they call "deconstruction of faith."

The Peace of Wisdom I am writing this 3rd part in the series of hearing from the voice of the Lord on September 19th, day 2 of the Feast of Trumpets. There are fires in CA, Washington State and Oregon, a tropical depression coming up on the Gulf Coast, following a Cat 2 hurricane, which …

You may feel like a failure today, but failing is learning. Learning is powerful! So, failure is powerful. Your inadequacy as a mother is all you need to allow God to bring you into new territory and to grow you as a person!
I asked the Lord, “What’s going to happen to the church?” I heard, “She will lift up her head. She will be refined, tested and tried, but will see God’s power in a brand new way.
