Thomas Gibson – Prophetic Word
2001 04 05.1
As I closed my eyes during prayer this morning I could see a mass of people coming toward me, more than I could count. I was above their heads as they came. As I watched they raised their hands in praise to God I knew in my spirit the praise was for delivering them from the world and the ways of the world.
In the distance I could see from where they had come. They were coming out of many different churches. As I watched I understood in my spirit they were leaving because they had been pushed out.
Now thus says the Lord. These are My people called by My Name. In every church and in every denomination I have placed My people, called by My Name, serving Me in truth, serving Me in humility, and serving Me in holiness.
There is coming a time when they shall not compromise the Word. And there will come a division between those of My people who will not compromise the Word––the Word of God––and those of the world which fill the churches having placed themselves in positions of power, and positions of control, and have made the churches power of none effect.
For the church power is My power, says the Lord, and none of it is being put forward in these churches because of the control of the people of the world over the people of God.
There is coming a great war within the church, a non-compromising people, some of which will leave of their own free will but most will be pushed out in this war, a great spiritual war, which will see many people pushed out of the church. And they will come out dazed and not understanding that it is My will for them to come out.
For you see there is a great compromise within the churches: a compromise of My Word, a compromise of My will. And as I bring out My people they shall become united like the first century church and they shall go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit and the church shall return; and the church, the true church, the people, shall be united in great strength on the streets, and in the cities, and in towns, and wherever you go. They shall be united. And they will become the church.
Yes, there will still be divisions, denominations here and denominations there, but they will not be of Me! For either the denomination will repent and bow its knee and serve Me and just become the church and not a denomination, or I will reject the denomination and bring My people out. For I will not have a divided church in the last days. I cannot have a divided church in the last days. I need My power to flow through these people. I need unity, not division. I need humility, not arguments over differences of doctrine. And I need My people to flow in the strength. For in these last days there must come a great harvest of souls into the church and without this unity it can never come.
For I am not in favour of this war, but I must bring it to pass to bring the unity again. I must create a division between those who compromise and those who serve. I must bring a division between those who are of the world and are in control, and those who in humility want to serve Me. And they must be in unity with Me. Those in humility––they must be in unity.
This will come to pass. You are seeing a little bit now, as a few people are called out of the denominations. But many of My people are still there. Many of My people still want to be there. And I am telling them now, there is coming a time I will bring them out.
Don’t rush out, and don’t rush to stay in. Heed My Spirit and when it comes, follow the Spirit of the Lord. Be in unity one with another. Do not argue differences of doctrine, but rather join in ranks in the power of the Holy Spirit, and be a sign unto the world, and be a witness unto the world, and be a power of the Holy Spirit. And this will bring in the great last day harvest of souls of which I will bring in hundreds of thousands throughout the world into the gospel way. So says the Lord!
