THE WOMAN IN THE WILDERNESS
"Is there not coming a time of great tribulation, says the Lord? And am I not preparing a people who shall minister to me during that time? I say, I am preparing a people, and they shall be used mightily in that day when the foundations of the earth do quake and when the foundations of human society are breaking in pieces. For it will be a fearful day, and the hearts of men shall fail as they see the things that are coming. But I will be for a sanctuary and for a covering to those who put their trust in me (Isa. 8:13-14), and I will shield them from all harm and provide for their needs in that day.
And now hear my word concerning that which you read in Revelation chapter twelve concerning the woman in the wilderness. The woman represents that glorious church which I am preparing and which will minister the Word of life in power during the tribulation. And the wrath of Satan shall be against her, and the remnant of her seed, which is left on the earth (Rev. 12:15-17). For previously did she give birth, and that which was born was caught up to the throne and glorified (Rev. 12:5), all except a remnant of her seed which was left on the earth to do a mighty work for me (Rev. 12:17).
Now what is the difference between the woman and the manchild which comes forth from her bosom? The manchild comes forth as the seed of the woman, and I will use this man-child to bruise the head of the serpent. For the pattern is true and must be fulfilled. The first fulfillment was when the woman Israel gave birth to the man Christ Jesus. For is it not written, "You are my son; this day Have I begotten thee?’ (Psalm 2:7). And from whom was He begotten? And when was the day of his birth? Was it not when He came forth from the womb of the virgin Mary? She gave birth to the Son of Man, and He was later glorified as the Son of God. And when was the day of His begettal to glorified life? Was it not when He came forth from the grave? Was not that the day of His birth into the glories of the heavenly? (Acts 13:33). And now consider the fulfillment of the pattern even in this end time. Shall I not bring forth from the womb of my glorious church those like to the Son of Man, and shall I not also bring forth those like to the glorified Son of God? For first shall come forth that which is like the Son of Man as a company of my chosen ones enter into Immortality in human flesh. This shall be the first fulfillment of the seed of the woman. And then shall come the second fulfillment in this end time when I shall cause a man-child company to be caught up into the heavenlies. This will be their begettal into glorified life, even that life which will fulfill the pattern of the Son of God when He was raised and glorified.
Now what would I have you to know concerning the woman? Will she not be made ready, and will she not minister in power in the days of tribulation? Does it not say that I will give her wings of an eagle to carry her to safety during the time that the serpent seeks to destroy her? (Rev. 12:14). And what would I have my people know? It is even this. In that day there shall be great danger from Satan-inspired hordes of people who will be whipped to a frenzy by the hate-inspired apostles of the enemy. And they will pour out their venom of hatred on those who are warning of the coming wrath, and those who are preaching a message of repentance in that day. And the life of my people will be in constant danger from those who want to silence the preachers of righteousness, for their deeds are evil and they hate the light and the truth. Therefore my people shall be sensitive to hear my voice that I may protect them and lead them to places of safety. For at times I will awaken them in the night and tell them to move to another location because of the danger that encompasses them. And my angels will be present to direct them where to go, and my glorified ones will appear to them and instruct them as to what they are to do. For it will be a fearful time as chaos reigns in the earth, and as the hate-inspired forces of the enemy seek to destroy those who would warn them and turn them from their evil ways.
Those who have entered into Immortality in human flesh, even the seed of the woman, shall have greater contact with the unseen world. For they will receive constant guidance and protection from the world beyond, and they shall be able to speak the word of the Lord to all who are in need of direction. For my Immortal ones on earth and my Glorified ones in the heavens shall be in constant communication with one another, and they shall provide help and guidance to the woman as she ministers in that day.
Now I would have you consider the way in which I will have my church meet in that day. I will have you meet in small groups in the places that I will show you. Many times you will have to meet in secret because the authorities will be clamping down on all that they consider fanaticism. So great will be the boldness of my servants in that day, and so astounding will be their message and their works, that the authorities will take action to try to stop the meetings. So my people, you will have to hear my voice and do that which I show you, for I will direct you in all your ways, and I will show you when and where to gather together.
Because of the great danger from both the hysterical mobs and the frightened authorities, much pressure will be put on all those who tend to deviate from accepted patterns of behavior and from approved procedures of religious activity. For even the religious world will seek to set up standards in that day of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable to the welfare of the nation in the times of extreme crises. I say, those who dare to not conform will be considered as fanatics and harmful deviates and will be persecuted relentlessly by those who pose to be the religious voice of the land. So my true servants will be buffeted from all sides as the people who are crazed by fear seek every means available to silence them. The people as a whole will refuse to listen to those who would call them to repentance and warn them of impending judgment in that day.
And now consider also the danger that will come from natural disasters and from man-caused eruptions in that day. For there will be many places where disasters shall strike suddenly, and where battles will rage furiously. And were not my people warned they would surely perish. So I will give warning, says the Lord, to all who are in danger that they may flee to places of safety, that the forces of destruction harm them not. They shall be told where to go to escape, says the Lord.
From whence shall come the warnings? I will warn by vision and by appearance of my glorified ones who shall be on constant duty in that day. They shall be empowered to bear my people up if need be and transport them to places of safety, and at times they shall be clothed and fed by supernatural means as they are obedient to my voice and follow the instructions that are given to them. So fear not my people, for I will surely keep you and protect you in that day. For even now all things are being made ready that nothing will be amiss when the great time of tribulation comes on the earth."
