I was with a small group of Christian friends at a Task Jesus prayer meeting in Manchester in the autumn of last year 2013.
While in that quiet moment of silence during the prayer time listening unto the Lord the Holy Spirit graciously gave me a vision.
The vision is not just personal it has to be declared to the Body of Christ.
This proclamation is not new, for in the history of Christianity; valiant servants of God have proclaimed or written similar warnings through visions and prophetic messages about the demise of the church and the failings of Presbyterians.
The church hierarchy have allowed the church to be compromised and lacked to uphold the consecrated and redeemed church of Jesus Christ.
I knew I couldn’t bring this vision until I searched the scriptures, listening and praying until I was happy, what I was saying was in line with the Bible, before I could share this vision to the church.
It was at this time the Holy Spirit graciously impressed upon my heart to bring an interpretation and a prophetic word of this albeit a graphic vision.
Satan has buffeted me and tried to distract me challenging my faith. *but greater is He that is in you, then he that is in the world 1 John 4v4
I found the vision is centralised around Ezekiel 6v31; Mark 11v12-14; Jude v12; Ephesians 4v14 amongst many others.
There have been many incidents and circumstances and false prompts to share the vision before its time.
THE RIGHT TIME
The Holy Spirit inspired me to share with the church because this month of January 2014 is a period in the Jewish calendar called ‘TU B’SHAVAT’ A Jewish new year for trees, with it being a time of replanting, renewing trees, for new fruit, I believe it is the right time to share this vision.
I saw a huge beautiful and magnificent tree which was covered with a mass of dark green leaves, it was so dense you could not see bough or branch. The mass of leaves were so heavy they hung down like a weeping willow tree, the tips of the leaves were touching the ground.
I saw the tree was bearing a reddish fruit they looked like pomegranates and many were touching the earth.
Then I was shown the underground powerful root system that fed the tree above. Before me I saw in amazement, the powerful, pure white as snow, root system it was awesome and much greater than the tree.
In awe I saw the beauty and purity of the roots, as I looked I knew the roots were not natural roots but a living source of Glory, Power, Grace and Love.
Then I saw there was a small part of the upper roots that was feeding the tree they were a grayish colour.
I asked, why was this different from the rest of the roots,
I was told the roots have been afflicted with sadness and sorrow and a reluctant and ancient decision had been made and the roots have started to withdraw its life giving sap of life to the tree.
I felt very sad, I knew if the root system withdrew the sap of life, the power and the beauty of the tree would die.
In my sadness, my eyes were lifted up, I saw the fruit of the tree was hanging so close to the ground, I saw a maggot a canker worm was crawling into the fruit bringing decay and rottenness to the tree.
I asked why isn’t the tree or anyone trying to repel the infestation.
I was shown the tree had grown from a tiny but blessed seed and now it’s grown to love its own beauty and stature. The tree didn’t regard the canker worm as a threat or see the damage the infestation was causing. The tree had chosen to ignore the rottenness that was happening, it seemed as though it compromised and accepted what was going on.
Then the living Word reminded me that Adam was sent into the garden to ‘dress’ the garden for such a purpose**
I knew before me was about the church and the anointing Power of Our Fathers Grace upon the church.
I asked the Lord, how can this be rectified and the church be restored.
The Lord made it very clear to me, He has risen up men and women, who have stood against kings, nations and high authorities in high places. They have faithfully stood against all living creatures seen and unseen, who have tried to oppose the growth of Grace within the living church of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Even through their battles against adversity they still tended to the church, chasing out the circumspect, wolves the false prophets and the anti-Christ’s; they still faithfully cut back the foliage to prevent the canker worm bringing rot into the tree, they guarded His Word and the Church.
In my heart heaviness came over me, for I saw men who had laboured in the garden, but they were tired and I saw no one else who were willing to stand up and tend to the tree and be willing to lay their lives down for the church.
The Lord shown me, there was some men who were willing to stand, but they lost the pathway in the garden, they had become distracted by the beauty of the tree and their eyes failed to see the subtleness of the cankerworm.
Again I was shown, that many men of God with powerful titles in powerful
positions within the church have also lost their way and become seekers of
power but they are in compliance with higher authorities. For many are deceivers,
seeking personal fame and gain, seeking after weak willed women and those
who are carnal. They desire honour, they are boastful within the innermost.
Then I saw some who were honourable men but they have become pursuers
after the things which are of the earth, seeking after signs, they are distracted and are walking two pathways.
I was told, My Gospel of Grace and Forgiveness cannot be shared, they havebeen neglectful of their first calling they have failed to tend my church.
AFTER THE INITIAL VISION,
AFTER THE INITIAL VISION I KNEW THE LORD HAD NOT FINISHED.
BECAUSE OVER THE PAST 5 MONTHS THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME FURTHER
INSIGHT TO THE REASONS WHY MEN HE HAS CALLED TO SERVE HIM HAVE
FALLEN SHORT BY LISTENING TO DECEPTIVE VOICES, THE CHURCH
HAS STARTED TO ROT AND DECAY.
AT THIS POINT YOU HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE, WHETHER TO ACCEPT OR
REFUSE THIS NEXT EXTENDED PART OR ALL OF THE EXHORTATIONS, THE LORD
LED ME TO PROPHESY
A PROPHETIC WORD
The Lord spoke unto me and said to the angels; with these gifts I gave unto you, they were not –Just – for the governance of my church, they were given to appointed men to be used in the governance of this world.
Did I not send my servants, did I not leave my Comforter for you to bring the
Truth and Life into the Church
Did I not bring and give you the Living Word for guidance into the places of wickedness, corruption and darkness.
Did I not give you authority and power over those in ‘high authorities in higher places, those who rebelled and those in rebellion. For they can see the power in the Blood and Glory of my Gospel and quake at the Name of Jesus your Christ and Saviour my Son
For there is to many appointed men who have been persuaded by men who
are called by my Name, for you have been beguiled by men of renown.
My servant Lot was placed into a place of wickedness, he too failed to ‘dress’ the trees. My servants kept him safe from my wrath.
DO I NOT WARN THEE, WOE! UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD
EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT
BITTER FOR SWEET AND SWEET FOR BITTER! ISAIAH5V20
For the elders, the pillars of the church have been undermined by the spectacular of those who lifted themselves into lofty places, elders and pillars of the church have allowed their authority to be supressed by charm and the spectacular.
They have neglected their first love, they have allowed other religions to compromise this love, they have raised up Ashreth poles in their honour.
The elders who I have placed as pillars in the church are not tending to the tree.
For they have become distracted, complacent and presumed others will do the work, but there is no others to do the work.
In time gone by I have placed faithful and just men to deal and correct churches that have been infested
For they have gone forth wielding my double edged sword cutting and pruning out things which are offensive to my Holiness and to the church bringing correction and direction putting down condemnation from corrupt men and women within the church.
There is a faith in the church but they lack belief in my Presence they disregard my Word. For there is confusion, they have faith and strive in what they see, but they lack faith in what they cannot see
The root is sadden He is withdrawing; in this generation there is a loud noise which is not sweet smelling to my nostrils.
The Lord is seeking approved men of faith able to divide His Word who are unashamed to tend to His tree even unto death.
For the Lord knows your name and says do not be afraid for ‘I SHALL’ be with you and you shall know in your heart for ‘I AM’ with you. Amen.
MY PERSONAL COMMENTS
Many church leaders and elders [not team leaders] of different Christian organisations have been persuaded and groomed by men of renown.
There are Ancient men from the past who have been with us in all generations who are with us in this generation and now are placing themselves in positions of power in the blinded church and operate in the new religions.
Many leaders who claim apostolic names and those in archbishopric religions have allowed themselves to become bystanders, foregoing the Holy Written Word to be rewritten under thE guise of modernisation and updating. Much of the newer bibles takes away and omits some of the truth. The people involved have a mandate to make it user friendly to the extent it wont offend the sinner to repentance. Some bibles are written not to offend society, cults and false religions.
There is a spirit of competiveness in churches where churches seek to create large conferences bringing the most famous and charismatic preacher to their forums irrespective if there doctrine is circumspect. At these conferences there is a great emphasis on music, with the latest dance or music groups people say to attract and accommodate younger people to church.
Surely, it’s the cross and the shedding of His Blood at Calvary brings sorrow to the sinner, Surely it’s the risen and resurrection of Our saviour that brings Joy and Hope into our lives.
DURING THIS PERIOD OF STUDYING AND PRAYING, MUCH OF THE VISION IS CENTRALISED AROUND THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL Ch 6V13; 31V3,5-6-10-14+ MARK 11V11-14, JUDE1V12; EPH 4V14.
SOME EVIDENTIAL EXPOSITION
Hebrews; 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
Act_15:2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension

|This is very apt for the present day but I feel it is more widespread than just the secular type denominations I see it as all through the church itself and within some of the spiritual organisations of the present day. When church politics comes to the fore, it pushes the Holy Ghost out and the rot of darkness sets in.
Sadly too often we find because light was previously portrayed within the movement, there are too many who fail to realise that the darkness of the flesh has now crept in and is slowly taking over areas of the work.
Yet God would have us know that He is doing a holy work! If so who is it who would dare bring in the fleshly works of personal and family ambition in to turn the church into a political ground.
Class distinction is still in the church and in many it progresses at a frightening rate. Men favouring men for what they can do for them has been with us a long time. E.G. The giving of special favours to the wealthy among the church is also a long term hindrance to the gospel, for it stifles the poor who may have genuine talents to give others but little money to spare.
An eroding process has been long going on in Christian organisations, but only the wise see it for what it is, until the whole tree rots from all the areas of it's weaknesses. Yet there should be no weaknesses, for God has promised to turn them into strengths by His power. Boldness is needed in these days to stand against all that which erodes and ultimately can destroy what Christ has built, but then we come up against another weakness. i.e. COMPROMISE!
We stay silent because we may offend some and possibly lose a few fair weather friends. Well 2014 is a year many of us will have to face our sad hindrances with courage and speak out the truth to shame the devil in his present works of erosion. He seeks to destroy are we trying to stop him?
If we die tomorrow have we spoken the truth today? Just how much do we love having the truth in our lives and are we still afraid to look in the mirror because we might see things that need to change? Thoughts that can set us free need to be considered carefully. love junexx
