“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.” (Revelation 12:1-2, NKJV)
On Sunday, May 19, 2019, during the Antioch International Church morning meeting, in Fort Mill, South Carolina, the Lord gave me this word of “the baby being birthed.” I am grateful that Maynard Porter was able to capture most of it on video. (The YouTube link of the recording on our Love For His People website is below.)
The word came during the time that Pastor Elizabeth Wyns Enns had been blowing the shofar during the worship. As she stood on the podium platform, she directed the sound of the shofar to the four corners of the globe, moving the shofar circular and then stopping at each point, directing the sound from corner to corner.
(You can also see that video on our channel with the link below.)
From my seat in the middle section directly in front of the podium, I began to sense the Lord giving me a word to share. All I got was that the “Lion of Judah was roaring.” I momentarily hesitated, but then knew I had to obey and share whatever would follow, so I walked to the front, crossed another section of chairs to the right and spoke to Pastor Jesse Enns, standing on the front row of the right section of chairs.
“I believe the Lord is roaring like a lion,” I spoke to him, waiting the assurance to speak publicly at this time. He nodded and said the extra podium mic was on the stage platform. I went up, picked it up, touched the shofar that Liz was holding so she knew of my presence, and when she gave the look of acknowledgment, I proceeded to speak what the Lord was giving me.
I started declaring that the Lord was roaring like a lion, and He was on the move.
At that point, the rest of the prophetic word was recorded by Maynard Porter, from the back section of the seats. Here is the transcription of the prophecy from his recording. (Thank you, again, Maynard!)
“He rules in the earth. There is nothing that will happen apart from Him. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. You need not fear. You need not look around and see that which is being shaken because He is the Lord and He is the One who makes the travail come. The baby is being birthed, the baby is being released.
You are in the midst of that time. You are the ones that I have chosen, that I have called, and you are the ones who will see it happen in your midst today.
Be not afraid. Do not put down about you but see that the Living God of Israel is on the move.”
Scripture speaks of the time, in the end of days, when shaking, travail, and fear will come upon the earth as the time draws near for Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah, to come again and take up His rightful throne in Jerusalem, Israel.
As it is written, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3-10, KJV)
So what does this prophetic word I delivered mean for you and I?
Here is what I can say, as we continue to see prophetic signs from centuries ago being fulfilled right before our eyes. It is happening now. Read Matthew 24 for what Yeshua (Jesus) said would happen in the last days, the end of times.
Here is a brief overview, fulfilled already in our day and hour that we live in, with more to come.
1.Israel became a nation in 1948. Check.
2.Jews are returning to the Promised Land after 2000 years in Diaspora (pushed out of Israel into the nations of the world, since 70 AD.) Check.
3.Persecution of Christians and Jews has never been greater at any time in history than now. Check.
4.Wars and rumors of wars abound.Check.
5.Nation rises against nation. Check.
6.Deception among Christians and all others grows astronomically. Check.
8.Gospel being preached all around the world – satellite TV, Internet, word of mouth. Check.
Am I saying the end is near?
I am believing that the baby is being birthed, speaking of those who will fulfill the call, young and old, and will accept the mantles put upon their shoulders from the Lord to be bold, to be strong, to hear and act as directed by the Lord, in order to fulfill the great commission, the last day thrust of the Living God of Israel.
He is speaking loud and clear, and we best be about our Father’s business.
As Paul Wilbur sings on his new CD release, hear the “Roar from Zion”! (And by the way, I highly recommend that entire project by Paul and his team, recorded in Jerusalem last fall!)
P.S. On May 10 I returned from my 20thtrip to Israel. And guess what? I brought back for you my last 58 short videos I entitled “Walk With Me in Israel”. You can join me as I walk through the beautiful land and cities of Israel. Watch them here on our YouTube channel: Walk With Me – Israel May 2019
Also, my previous ones from other locations are here also on YouTube: Walk With Me
