PROPHETIC WARNING: a Strange & Silent War // Suffering & the Crucified Life



On 11/14/22, upon awakening in the morning, I heard a strange word:


"LACHEM"

I actually heard it three times.....and I think that was because I did not know the word or even how to write it down....so I phonetically sounded it out. Also, when we hear things 2 or 3 times, it is to emphasis the importance of the word. (For example, in the Book of John, when JESUS used the phrase 'VERILY, VERILY' 25 times)


The word, 'LACHEM,' sounded very much like a Hebrew word, so I looked it up, and found that the word 'LAHEM,' and 'LACHEM' were one of the same..... and in STRONGS Concordance H3901, it means:


WAR / BATTLE

The ROOT WORD also means:

  • fight

  • overcome

  • prevail

  • devour

At first, I thought that the LORD was pointing out to me, again, that WAR is coming. This something that HE has shown me recently concerning Russia... war will come. HOWEVER, upon further study, I realized that this was something different....it was pointing to a very DIFFERENT TYPE of war.


I say this because the word 'Lachem' is actually USED ONLY ONCE in the Bible.....and it is talking about a SPECIFIC type of war, which is found in Judges 5:8:


“They chose new gods;
Then there was WAR IN THE GATES;
Not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.”

I would like to briefly decipher this verse, so that we can get the full picture of what I was shown:


WAR IN THE GATES:

'Fighting in the GATES' can also refer to a space INSIDE the gate....such as a town or public meeting place. In other words, there was a 'war' that broke out within the Israelite's own land. However, it was not a civil war, but a war from a pagan people, the Canaanites.


NEW GODS:

During this period of time, the Bible shows over and over again that the Israelites were commiting idolatry, by worshiping other gods....or 'NEW GODS.' They had forsaken their roots of worshiping the true GOD, YWAH, and the CHOOSE to worship wordly, pagan, small gods instead. You can see this in many Scriptures, such as Joshua 2:12:


“They forsook the LORD, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the LORD’s anger

UNARMED:

Now, notice that in Judges 5:8, the Israelites were without 'shield or spear'....in other words, they were UNARMED!!! This points to an unusual and strange war.....because, Israelites were caught without anything to fight with. What kind of WAR is fought without weapons?


COMMENTARY:

In Barnes Notes Commentary, he says this about this 'strange' war:


‘the war in the gates describes the hostile attacks of the Canaanites, which were a punishment of the idolatry of the Israelites”

INTEPRETATION:

I believe that what I was shown is that, not only is a conventional WAR is coming to the U.S, but we are ALREADY in a SILENT and STRANGE WAR!! This different war is being fought against Christians, and the Christian culture.


Like the Canaanites, it is being fought by the Anti-Christ Beast System. It isn't fought with conventional weapons, but instead in the spiritual realm. The spiritual warfare is fought, not with weapons of the world, but spiritual ones that are given from above.....divine power to demolish strongolds, arguments, and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of GOD. We are EVEN to take every thought captive and make it obedient to CHRIST:


"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" 1 Corinthians 10:4-5

What happened to the Israelites, is a fore-shadow of America today, and the judgments that will be allowed to fall upon the western church. The church, for the most part, has lost her way and now has merged with ungodliness, paganism, worldliness, idolatry and false teachings. She has become the Laodicea LUKEWARM church from Revelation 3:14-19.


We now see this 'silent war' against Christianity progress quickly......it started slowly, like a snow ball at the top of a mountain, only to get bigger, stronger and more forceful as it moves forward! ‘Rights’ are being taken away, voices are silenced, wrong has become the law, and justice is thwarted. This is a STRANGE WAR that CANNOT fought by physical weapons, .but only spiritual ones!!


It is also the beginning of a wave of PERSECTION that is talked about in the Books of Daniel, Matthew and Revelation. It is barely detected or noticed now, but soon it will be very obvious who the real targets are.


This 'Persecution of the End Times' is not taught in most of the churches. That is because the don't teach what the WORD says about the anti-christ, and how he will try to OVERCOME THE SAINTS: check out these verses:



“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. Matthew 24:9

“And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Revelatin 6:10

“It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.” Revelation 13:7

We must remember that the WORD also says that that we WILL SUFFER.....IF we are HIS disciples. This is not something that is preached today....but it is a foundational truth for those who WALK with JESUS!


“For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,” Philippians 1:29


Many might ask: WHY DOES THE LORD ALLOW PERSECUTION?

This persecution, that is coming, is to REFINE and TEST the church. It will be a 'dividing' of who are the REAL sheep, and who are the REAL goats.


The Book of Daniel actually tells WHY HIS PEOPLE will be persecuted in the LAST DAYS......so that they will be:


  • REFINED

  • PURIFIED

  • MADE SPOTLESS & WHITE



We are NOT TO BE SURPRISED when these sufferings come, EVEN though most western Christians do not understand the concept of the 'SUFFERING FOR CHRIST.'

This is the CRUCIFIED LIFE, where we carry CHRIST's sufferings in our bodies! Like Paul, many will bear the 'marks of JESUS' in their body! We are to REJOICE when we share in HIS SUFFERINGS, for we will also share in HIS GLORY!!


"...always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh."2 Corinthians 4:10-11

"From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus." Galatians 6:17

"and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:17-18

CONCLUSION:


Dear Saints, the LORD is calling us to understand the times that we are living in....and the cost of being a TRUE DISCIPLE of CHRIST. We are to walk in HIS CRUCIFIED LIFE, by OFFERING UP to the LORD our physical suffering as offerings to the LORD.


This is part of the 'light of the knowledge of the glory of God,' that is a 'treasure' in our 'earthly vessels!'


"For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 2 Corinthians 4:6-11

I believe Christ will separate the wheat from the chaff. There are too many ppl that call themselves Christians, yet sin and show no sorrow for their sin. It’s Religion vs personal relationship With Christ. No one comes to God without going through Jesus Christ. Seek to draw closer to Jesus and He’ll draw closer to you and show you great and might things that are to come.

Yes, Christ Jesus will separate wheat from chaff. Even many who sincerely want to follow Christ think it's okay to "wink at" sin. Reminds me of this: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (From Hosea 4:6.) Yes - it's so important to have a personal relationship w/ Christ in prayer on a regular basis rather than just having religion. Also, Christians need to read their Bible & study it, although Jesus doesn't require us to have a PhD in the Bible & a person could have a PhD in the Bible & not be saved. We have to strive to obey Jesus & to take it seriously, for ex, that if there is even one person we don't…

Who else has been given the okay to speak to our Congress? Makes me wonder.

It is a good reminder, when we feel guilty or jealous that our lives have not gone as successfully as we wished -- that there were times we asked God to use us, sharpen us, make us servants and ambassadors in support of His purposes.


Hardship is included in accomplishing higher ends.


I've always wondered why Solomon is referred to as the wisest man, when he made so many grievious offenses. Many similarities between Solomon and today's church.


1. Able to gain respect from outsiders, even to the point of giving advice to non-believers, hosting their visits, introducing them to public. Business savvy, mediation, political insight.


2. Started out earnest and wanting God's best for all people, while gradually slipping…

So true. Our brainwashed and woke citizens are now apostate and couldn’t tell a lie from the truth if it slapped them in the face. They have been turned over to a reprobate mind because they did not love the truth. Anarchy? No problem! Loss of freedoms? No big deal. Corrupt officials? Whatever. Being controlled and manipulated in the the NWO system? It’s for the common good. Sorry for my sarcasm. Lord have mercy on us all.

When you speak against being "woke," you're basically speaking against many on the Democratic side of the political aisle, but if you don't also have something to say against the Republican side of the political aisle, then that would represent being politically corrupted or blinded. You speak against anarchy. Good. I don't like anarchy either. But when you speak against anarchy, does that include speaking against the horrifying anarchy we witnessed on January 6 just a couple of years ago? When you speak against corruption, does that include speaking against the corruption on both sides of the political aisle & does it include speaking against the corruption of politics itself? Being political includes and involves corruption in-and-of-itself. The fact is:…
