June 18

This morning, I have been met with the presence of the Lord in one of the most powerful ways I have ever experienced in my life. I met Him with tears, completely unworthy to be in His presence but for the blood of Jesus.

The Lord quietly spoke to me that my time here in prison is swerving His purpose. He has ordained me for this. It is a privilege and a calling, and one in which I feel totally unqualified. Yet here I am. And there is a clear message I am to proclaim to the church in this nation.

The time is upon us when the sheep will be separated from the goats. The tares will be separated from the wheat and will be burned up in the eternal fire. It is time to get off the fence and determine who we shall serve -- no matter the consequences. For those who choose the Lord God, suffering will no doubt ensue -- great persecution and even imprisonment. Yet we are to rejoice to be so-called, for God has a special purpose in this. It is all part of His divine plan. We are His instrument in sparking revival even in the darkest of places. We are called to be His light in even the bleakest of dungeons, but we are not to fear, for He is with us wherever we are called of Him to go.

And so we must stand on truth and justice, and solely upon the Word of God. There is no untruth in It. We cannot reject any part of any word of It. Our life must be one that is filled with the Holy Spirit. We are called to be different. Set apart. Sanctified. Transformed. Full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control which all comes from being in His presence. We will not have all the answers to God's mysteries, but we must be the light shining in darkness which cannot be blown out. He alone provides the power and ability to be if only we would fully surrender to His care and to His Lordship. We are called to be His doulos -- His slave. His disciple-makers. But He is the perfect Master and will not place upon us any burden which we cannot bear. He has given us power through His Holy Spirit to overcome any situation and obstacle, and now is the time to prepare.

There are many waiting for you and watching for you, to see what you will do. The choice is now yours. I have seen how the Holy Spirit can change the most vile, evil, self-centered heart in the most sudden and dramatic, and permanent way. Many more will turn to Him, as we take up our cross and follow Him, to the byways, and even into what may be our divine destiny -- imprisonment for Christ. Revival in our land will take place in our prisons as more and more of God's chosen are called to take up their crosses no matter the consequences. Now is the time to decide whose side you are on.

God will put in you a heart of compassion and love for these, the worst of sinners. He is moving, and He is calling. Now is the time to repent of our idols and our indecisiveness and determine to follow Christ with our whole being. Now is the point of decision. No more wavering!
