Lord, I thank You for the Joy of helping You help others. Thank You for stripping away all the sin that covers a soul, when we truly look through Your eyes. And by looking through the lens of Your Mercy, always show us that precious Soul that You so desperately want to bring back Home again, no matter how many layers of darkness surround it. May we never look at any person through any other lens than Yours. Amen.
An Astounding Praise Report
It is with great joy, and in deep awe of the immeasurable Mercy of God, that I share this praise report. It is glorious news indeed for all who love our Lord Jesus Christ and whose hearts beat as one with His own tender, loving and merciful heart. Truly, the Mercy of God is unfathomable! How gracious our God is, and how He yearns over every single soul that He has created! It is written, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 KJV
The international group of prayer warriors to which I belong was recently called to a two-week period of travailing prayer and fasting. This was a highly critical time; in our group we had all been given by the Lord many sufferings to bear as we gave ourselves to intense intercession. For a few, their physical pain became excruciating as they prayed. Intercessory Suffering bears much fruit for the Kingdom of God, and the few whose suffering becomes almost impossible to bear are granted by the Lord to see what is going on in the spirit as a result of our intercession. Half-way into this period we were encouraged when we received this update from one of our leaders.
Through a phone call with Ezekiel du Bois, a sacrifice soul who is called to undergo from time to time extremely intense suffering in intercession, she learned that Ezekiel was seeing that we were praying over the souls of people who were being tortured and executed. He knew that there were not just one or two being executed now – but many. At Gitmo they were trying to get information out of people, using strong means to get them to talk. However, we were not only praying for those in Gitmo. Ezekiel began to understand that some of these people were not actually in Gitmo but on a Russian prison ship. Many of these were from a Russian Orthodox background but, through the course of their lives, they had become layered over with sins of self and pride and the world until they were barely recognisable. It was these souls, in particular, that we would be praying over. Ezekiel realised then that President Trump is not the only one trying to ‘drain a swamp’. President Putin is doing his own ‘draining’.
The Unfathomable Mercy of God
The Lord had appeared to the indicted people in the spirit and was telling them, “Come. I will forgive you, just come. Receive Me.“ They were realising what they had done, the wickedness of their lives, their deeds… who they had been serving in it all [Satan] and how evil it all was – how evil he, the Enemy, was.
Ezekiel revealed what the Lord was allowing him to see: “They were falling to their knees before the Lord in amazement that He was willing to still show them Mercy. In deep sorrow and repentance, they were crying out, ‘But Lord, how can You forgive me?‘ But He was; Jesus was touching them all, receiving them, receiving their cries of repentance. These were relatively big, strong men – and they were sobbing, on their knees, just weeping at His feet. The Justice of God was there, hovering over them. It seemed to have a mass of its own, encircling them. I heard some of them saying, ‘Lord, I will accept any punishment from You for what I have done. Anything! I deserve it all!‘ They were saying, one after the other, ‘But it’s my fault! I’m guilty! I deserve Hell for all of these things!!‘
“And the Lord simply picked up His hands, like He always does, and showed them the wounds. And that Circle of Justice backed right away from them. Daddy-God came in then, and they were all just regenerated, swept up in His arms. Holy. Pure. Changed back to what they were in the beginning of their lives, like pure, innocent babies.
“Never before have I seen His mercy in that clear a light, that great a way. His Mercy over them was in direct response to the Heart Dwellers: their prayers… their offerings… their sacrifices for the sake of His souls that were still lost and wandering, buried under sin and darkness.
“When the prisoners were repenting, at first it was if the gates of Heaven had been shrouded somehow. They couldn’t be seen through the 2nd Heaven atmosphere. But it was just the filth, the smog of all the sins of the Earth had risen and clouded my view.
“But once Jesus showed them His hands, and Justice was pushed back away, it seemed as though all of Heaven was watching. And all of Heaven came down, spearheaded by His Mercy, right at the point, just like a spear. Our prayers, offerings and sufferings were ascending up through our atmosphere into the 2nd heavens, while His Mercy was coming down. They collided head-on; it was almost like a nuclear blast. This was like a major breakthrough turning-point, because these people were receiving now the Grace of True Contrition, True Remorse. So much so that even the angels, and certainly the demons, backed way back and just stood there in awe of what was happening!
“When His Mercy and Grace met our little offerings—a huge gaping hole was opened, and this indescribably beautiful Light came pouring through. God’s Justice gave way to His Mercy – bigger and grander, and on a larger scale than I have ever seen in my life. That’s what our prayers are doing. That’s what God is doing with all these things we are offering. The Power of even the smallest offering is just phenomenal…
“There is now a major, huge hole in the darkness that was blocking the way between Heaven and Earth. It is allowing the Light of Jesus and His Mercy to come through. It needs our prayers, sufferings and offerings to keep that hole open and wide.
“Next, Ezekiel was shown that even for many of the guilty souls listed in these indictments, who were not yet in prison… they, too, were receiving this same breakthrough, and they were starting to understand and repent. The Grace of True Repentance was reaching them, too. Jesus was visiting them personally, because we have been asking Him to do just that!… to tear through the Darkness… to visit these soon-to-die ones and reveal Himself to them one last time. To them yet one more chance to see and find Him – and receive Him in Truth. To these souls, this Light is such a contrast to the Darkness that they had been living in… such a contrast to the lies and deception they had lived under—some of them for most of their lives.
“By now (it was around 11:00 or so) and this particular Battle was nearing its end. Ezekiel’s pain was growing far less. And he remembered that all the Scripture readings he had received throughout the night before had been about the Harvest and Fruitfulness. As we talked together, we realised something I’d never thought of before:
“Not only is the Lord draining the Swamp – He is turning the filth of the Swamp into Glorious Victory for the Kingdom of God. Yes, these people were dying – the ultimate punishment for their crimes that man metes out. But Jesus was, at the same time, snatching them out of the hands of the one they had been serving all that time – and bringing them Home, even at that last moment, to Glory. How great is our God!
“Ezekiel said that the only song he had been able get to ‘work’ on his computer was a song by Freddie Haler called ‘Songs of the Angels’ – a song about how the angels rejoice at the repentance of a single sinner. These people, wicked as their deeds had been, were a beautiful part of the Great Harvest the Lord speaks of. Now they would be with Him eternally.”
[The above report is from Carol Jennings, one of our leaders, who spoke on the phone to Ezekiel du Bois (our overall leader together with his wife, Clare). Carol subsequently shared this encouraging news with our prayer warrior team].
“Let us press on in intercession for the sake of the souls He is so dearly longing to bring Home, no matter who they are, or what they have done in their lives. Because always He would remind us: If not for His Grace we, too, could be on a prison ship awaiting execution.” – Carol Jennings
Sadly, to some Christians – those who don’t recognise in themselves a pharisaical spirit – these last-minute conversions may not be ‘Glorious News’ at all. Maybe you are feeling like my fellow prayer warriors and I were feeling last year, that they must be brought to Justice as soon as the Military Tribunals could begin. However, that was before Jesus shared His heart more fully with us, telling us how He feels about so many tens of thousands of indicted persons falling into Hell.
Maybe some of you have been crying out for Justice to be meted out – Extreme Justice for the Satanic Deep State traitors… Extreme Justice for those who have stolen billions of dollars from their nation… Extreme Justice for those who have caused untold numbers of deaths of the innocent and defenceless… Extreme Justice for those who have been running large sex-trafficking rings, causing untold suffering and premature death to huge numbers of very young children… Extreme Justice for those who have relished brutally torturing their victims before offering them as human sacrifices – even babies – to their god Satan who had promised them such rich rewards for serving him.
The Mercy of God is beyond the understanding of us all. Let us never forget the words of Jesus to the Pharisees when they gleefully brought to Him the woman who had been caught in adultery. They all slunk away one by one, hanging their heads in shame, when Jesus said to them, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” John 8:7-9
Note from So Greatly Loved
And can it be, that I should gain
An interest in the Saviour’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shoulds’t die for me?
‘Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies:
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the first-born seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine.
‘Tis mercy all! let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.
He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace,
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
‘Tis mercy all, immense and free;
For, O my God, it found out me!
Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth and followed Thee.
No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
Bold I approach the eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
My prayer is that not one of us will fail to be saved, and that we will avail ourselves of the Mercy of God. Truly, His Mercy is unfathomable and freely given to all who call upon Him.
