Prophetic word by Sally Green: It is not Time as Usual

I want to share a prophetic word that I received today through Sally Green that is intended for the body of Christ at large. My wife and I met Sally when we were studying at Christ For the Nations Insitute in Dallas, Texas. She was on the faculty at CFNI and a leader in the prayer ministry on the campus. I always enjoyed her classes due to the passion that she had for the Lord and for the call to prayer. When she spoke on prayer, she was speaking out of a deep reservior of life experiences pursuing the Lord in the secret place. She had authority.

I felt that it was important for each of you to hear the Word of the Lord through her for this hour. Remember, it is NOT time as usual!

Dear Wise Virgins in the Lord,

Sunday as I was in worship at church the Word of the Lord came to me. I will share the gist of it and what I hear the Lord saying...

I first saw an oil drill drilling down into the rock. Then I heard: "IT IS NOT TIME AS USUAL! It is time to get MORE OIL in your lamps...Darkness is coming like you have not known before in your country...You need more oil NOW. Not a lot of time but some time.. Oil comes from personal time with me. A day is coming where you must hear 'This is the way walk you in it.' A day where I will say 'Do not go down that street. Do not go the normal familiar way. Go this way...Wise Virgins do not be distracted by the normal."

I also heard the Lord say "There is only one who has done it all right! Do not let your failures hold you back from coming into My Presence to get the oil. Come through My Son! Put your claim on the Oil I have provided for you."

Supporting Scriptures:

Isaiah 30:20 And though the Lord gives you The bread of adversity and the water of affliction, Yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, But your eyes shall see your teachers.
Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
Isaiah 30:22 You will also defile the covering of your images of silver, And the ornament of your molded images of gold. You will throw them away as an unclean thing; You will say to them, "Get away!"
Psalm 112:4 Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
Psalm 112:6 Surely he will never be shaken; The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
Psalm 112:7-8 His heart is established he will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD; He will not be afraid, Until he sees his desire upon his enemies.

As for me, it takes me awhile to communicate...I am still trying to get replies and correspondence done that is nearing a year old. Major sickness like battering rams gets my time knotted up and then I do not catch up. My life is mostly full of "Undercover work" for the Lord! Or I like to say, sort of like the trench warfare of WW1...Not that bad of course....when I am tempted to be discouraged through days of warfare, I remember I am not in the trench of WW1 or the concentration camps of WW2. That keeps me in a Holy perspective. For all of us the great words of Winston Churchill would be good to remember for now and in the near future, "Never, Never, Never give up!"

And then the MUCH GREATER WORDS of Our Lord Jesus ...Men ought always to pray and not lose heart.

I leave you and myself with those words. You are always in my heart.

Living in abundant Joy and Grace,

Sally Green

Great word! I feel the pressure of that on my heart and have specifically felt it today during some quiet time I had with the Lord, just a few hours before I read this. Something is stirring in the Spirit for us all to buckle down and get in with the Lord. This is no time for lazy spirituality.

Right on Jake! As I read your comments, I could literally hear you saying, "This is no time for lazy spirituality." That is classic Jake-ism!

I also enjoyed your testimony at church on Sunday morning.

HI Brian..its nice to be back home! Hope all is well with you..

When I read this word it seems to me to be very accurate..we have a window of time to prepare..a time to sound the alarm...

When I first read this I was left with the impression that 'we should hurry and pray, get more oil-- darkness is coming; be fearful'

Darkness is coming, Jesus said it would. We are lights in this world. I'd like to encourage you that when you seek for oil, you're seeking to have oil to burn in the darkness that is to come for the lost to see, not because of fear.

Call out those who are in darkness and introduce them to the marvelous light. Light has no place with darkness, God separated it in the beginning.

The thing about light is, if its daytime, you have to look to see if its on. If its night, you can't help but see it. You will shine but don't fall asleep; trials and pressure will press the oil from you. If you've been pressed lately, get in a habit of not just praying, but entering into His presence and soaking. Don't be one of those who didn't bring enough oil.

Darkness is here already but much more is to follow. We must prepare ourselves.
