Dearest Ones, Today has been a special day for my people who are getting ready for what is soon coming in society and among the nations. As yet I am holding back the winds of strife [Rev. 7:1], but I will soon let them go to the point that the Sunday law issue will begin to surface as the solution to the world's problems. It is within my plans to allow this to happen because it is corresponding with the preparations of my remnant people who are coming close to me and cooperating with the work of my Spirit. This enables me to let the winds go in proportion to the perfecting work of the three angels' messages in the lives of my chosen ones who are responding and going forward in the cleansing work and the latter rain. This work is the last warning the world will ever hear as it spreads across the world like fire in the stubble. Now it is a race against time as the work moves forward from person to person, house to house and country to country. Nothing can stop it now, for it is backed up by the waves of the mighty Holy Spirit as it swells into the latter rain. But for my people it is a time of refreshing, as the long-awaited Spirit is poured out upon the earth to enlighten the people who are awake to the signs of my coming and are preparing to receive the latter rain, and preach the last warning message to the world. Therefore, the topic for today is "preparedness." As I have said before, if the owner of the house had known what time of night the thief was coming, he would have been prepared. [Matt. 24:43.] Therefore, you must make known that my coming is near at hand, and fear not for scoffers [2 Pet. 3:3, 4], for there have always been scoffers, and always will be, for it is one of the ways that the devil can bring darkness and discouragement upon you. But heed not the baying of the wolves. Keep your eyes single to my instructions that I give you in the Word and in the Spirit of Prophecy, plus in my daily messages of comfort and instruction. You are my beloved children and I will never leave you nor forsake you, though at times it may seem to you that I am more quiet than others. But if you persevere, you will break through the fog of doubt or oppression that the evil one throws around you in an attempt to separate you from the light of my countenance. But heed not him not, nor be afraid of his accusations and lies, for it is his way of trying to come between us. But you will be safe if you persevere into the circle of my arms which will always surround and protect you. Now go to the activities of your day, but look to me for guidance and wisdom for every challenge, and you will have my victory over every fiery dart and temptation of the evil one, and you will be my servants to minister to all around you the amazing grace of my love. Lovingly, Jesus.
