THE DIVIDING LINE

By Tiffany Bretana

I received a vision on December 17, 2017, I saw the Lord with a winnowing basket in His hands, removing the chaff from the wheat.

Then I was given a vision of a wood shaving plane …. and I heard the Lord say I am making all the crooked places straight.

In a vision on January 4th, I saw the Lord with a sifting pan in His hands. He was sifting out gold from fool’s gold. Then I saw the Lord bite into a piece of gold to test it’s authenticity. We are in the season, where the Lord is separating out the pure gold from the fool’s gold. Fool’s gold immediately upon being seen is shiny, shimmery, and sparkly. Pure gold has to be refined by fire to take out all the dross and impurities.

I hear the Lord say …..

All that glimmers is not gold. I will not be found amongst those that are appeasing to the eye nor the popularity of men. The trials that some of us have faced and endured were in the refiner’s fire to clear out the dross and impurities.

Then I heard the Lord say ….. each one’s works would be tested by fire. What is pure shall stand, what is not pure, or impure shall come to nothing.

1 Corinthians 3:13-15 each one’s work will be clearly shown [for what it is]; for the day [of judgment] will disclose it, because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality and character and worth of each person’s work. If any person’s work which he has built [on this foundation, that is, any outcome of his effort] remains [and survives this test], he will receive a reward. But if any person’s work is burned up [by the test], he will suffer the loss [of his reward]; yet he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has barely escaped] through fire.

I heard the Lord say … unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Prosperity comes from the Lord. I the Lord, see and know your works.

Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.

The Lord is very intentional about cleaning up and out the prophetic. On December 5, 2017, the Lord was speaking to me about His Word being a fire and a hammer and that in this season He is raising up His pure prophets and prophetic voices, that the cadence to their walk would be one of PURITY, CONFRONTATION, & REPENTANCE to expose the false.

🔹False Prophets Denounced – Jeremiah 23:9-40🔹

9-Concerning the prophets: My heart [says Jeremiah] is broken within me, All my bones shake; I have become like a drunken man, A man whom wine has overcome, Because of the Lord And because of His holy words [declared against unfaithful leaders].

10-For the land is full of adulterers (unfaithful to God); The land mourns because of the curse [of God upon it]. The pastures of the wilderness have dried up. The course of action [of the false prophets] is evil and they rush into wickedness; And their power is not right.

11-“For both [false] prophet and priest are ungodly (profane, polluted); Even in My house I have found their wickedness,” says the Lord.

12-“Therefore their way will be to them like slippery paths In the dark; they will be pushed and fall into them; For I will bring disaster on them, In the year of their punishment,” says the Lord.

13-“And I have seen a foolish and an offensive thing in the prophets of Samaria: They prophesied by Baal and caused My people Israel to go astray.

14-“Also I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem: They commit adultery and walk in lies; They encourage and strengthen the hands of evildoers, So that no one has turned back from his wickedness. All of them have become like Sodom to Me, And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.

15-Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts in regard to the prophets, ‘Behold, I am going to feed them [the bitterness of] wormwood And make them drink the poisonous water [of gall], For from the [counterfeit] prophets of Jerusalem Profaneness and ungodliness have spread into all the land.’”

16-Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Do not listen to the words of the [false] prophets who prophesy to you. They are teaching you worthless things and are leading you into futility; They speak a vision of their own mind and imagination And not [truth] from the mouth of the Lord.

17-“They are continually saying to those who despise Me [and My word], ‘The Lord has said, “You will have peace”’; And they say to everyone who walks after the stubbornness of his own heart, ‘No evil will come on you.’

18-“But who [among them] has stood in the council of the Lord, That he would perceive and hear His word? Who has marked His word [noticing and observing and paying attention to it] and has [actually] heard it?

19-“Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, A whirling tempest; It will whirl and burst on the heads of the wicked.

20-“The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has set in motion and accomplished the thoughts and intentions of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it.

21-“I did not send [these counterfeit] prophets, Yet they ran; I did not speak to them, Yet they prophesied.

22-“But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned My people from their evil way And from the evil of their decisions and deeds.

23-“Am I a God who is at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God far away?”

24-“Can anyone hide himself in secret places So that I cannot see him?” says the Lord. “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord .

25-“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My Name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed [visions when on my bed at night].’

26-How long [shall this state of affairs continue]? Is there anything in the hearts of the prophets who prophesy falsehood, even these prophets of the deception of their own heart,

27-[who think that they can make My people forget My Name by their [contrived] dreams which each one tells another, just as their fathers forgot My Name because of Baal?

28-The prophet who has a dream may tell his dream; but he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat [for nourishment]?” says the Lord.

29-“Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]?” says the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks the [most stubborn] rock [in pieces]?

30-Therefore behold (hear this), I am against the [counterfeit] prophets,” says the Lord, “[I am descending on them with punishment, these prophets] who steal My words from one another [imitating the words of the true prophets].

31-Hear this, I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who use their [own deceitful] tongues and say, ‘Thus says the Lord .’

32-Hear this, I am against those who have prophesied false and made-up dreams,” says the Lord, “and have told them and have made My people err and go astray by their lies and by their reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them nor do they benefit and enhance [the life of] these people in the slightest way,” says the Lord .

33-“Now when this people or a prophet or a priest asks you [in jest], ‘What is the oracle of the Lord [the burden to be lifted up and carried]?’ Then you shall say to them, ‘What oracle [besides the one that declares you people to be the burden]!’ The Lord says, ‘I will unburden Myself and I will abandon you.’

34-And as for the prophet, the priest, or [any of] the people, whoever says, ‘The oracle of the Lord,’ [as if he knows God’s will], I will punish that man and his household.

35-[For the future, in speaking of the words of the Lord ] thus each of you shall say to his neighbor and to his brother, ‘What has the Lord answered?’ or, ‘What has the Lord spoken?’

36-For you will no longer remember the oracle of the Lord, because every man’s own word will become the oracle, [for as they mockingly call all prophecies oracles, whether good or bad, so will it prove to be to them; God will take them at their own word]; and you have perverted the words [not of a lifeless idol, but] of the living God, the Lord of hosts, our God.

37-Thus you will [reverently] say to the prophet, ‘What has the Lord answered you?’ and, ‘What has the Lord spoken?’

38-For if you say, ‘The oracle of the Lord!’ surely thus says the Lord , ‘Because you said this word, “The oracle of the Lord !” when I have also sent to you, saying, “You shall not say, ‘The oracle of the Lord !’”’

39-Therefore behold, I, even I, will assuredly forget you and send you away from My presence, you and the city (Jerusalem) which I gave to you and to your fathers.

40-And I will bring an everlasting disgrace on you and a perpetual humiliation (shame) which will not be forgotten.”

Then I heard the Lord say …. they have profaned the holy for the unholy.

🔹Israel’s Wicked Leaders Ezekiel 22:23-31 🔹

23-And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

24-“Son of man, say to her, ‘You [Israel] are a land that is not pronounced clean or rained on in the day of indignation.’

25-There is a conspiracy of her [false] prophets in her midst, like a roaring lion tearing the prey. They have devoured [human] life; they have taken [in their greed] treasure and precious things; they have made many widows among her.

26-Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things. They have made no distinction between the holy (sacred) and the profane (secular), they have not taught [people] the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

27-Her princes within her are like wolves tearing and devouring the prey, shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain.

28-Her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God’—when the Lord has not spoken.

29-The people of the land have practiced oppression and extortion and have committed robbery; they have wronged the poor and needy and they have oppressed the stranger without justice.

30-I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for [the sake of] the land, that I would not destroy it, but I found no one [not even one].

31-Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; I have repaid their way [by bringing it] upon their own heads,” says the Lord God.

This is in of itself is a confirmation of the first scriptural reference the Lord gave me. I love when the Lord confirms His Word with His Word.

On January 21, I heard the Lord say …. let’s move onto perfection. And then January 25, I heard the Lord say …. the great falling away from truth. They are both scriptural references from Hebrew 6

🔹Peril of Falling Away – Hebrews 6:1-8🔹

Therefore let us get past the elementary stage in the teachings about the Christ, advancing on to maturity and perfection and spiritual completeness, [doing this] without laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of teaching about washings (ritual purifications), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. [These are all important matters in which you should have been proficient long ago.] And we will do this [that is, proceed to maturity], if God permits. For [it is impossible to restore to repentance] those who have once been enlightened [spiritually] and who have tasted and consciously experienced the heavenly gift and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted and consciously experienced the good word of God and the powers of the age (world) to come, and then have fallen away—it is impossible to bring them back again to repentance, since they again nail the Son of God on the cross [for as far as they are concerned, they are treating the death of Christ as if they were not saved by it], and are holding Him up again to public disgrace. For soil that drinks the rain which often falls on it and produces crops useful to those for whose benefit it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God; but if it persistently produces thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.

On January 25, the Lord said the Reverential Fear of the Lord is returning. I am shaking the nations, Yes shake & tremble. The shaking is to bring to brokenness. This is My Body that was broken for you. Don’t take it lightly!!! This is what I have done for you. I want My Body back!!! I want My Church, My Bride back!!! This is a time of wooing of His Bride, He is rising with healing in His wings. There’s work to be done, let’s get on with it!!! Bring it in court!!! Communion is the point of contact of the finished worked of the cross.

The Lord is saying ….. Fruit and character will be the hallmarks of My true purity prophets.

🔹A Tree and It’s Fruit – Matthew 7:15-27🔹

15 “Beware of the false prophets, [teachers] who come to you dressed as sheep [appearing gentle and innocent], but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

16 By their fruit you will recognize them [that is, by their contrived doctrine and self-focus]. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?

17 Even so, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the unhealthy tree bears bad fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

20 Therefore, by their fruit you will recognize them [as false prophets].

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

22 Many will say to Me on that day [when I judge them], ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, and driven out demons in Your name, and done many miracles in Your name?’

23 And then I will declare to them publicly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me [you are banished from My presence], you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].’

24 “So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man [a far-sighted, practical, and sensible man] who built his house on the rock.

25 And the rain fell, and the floods and torrents came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

26 And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish (stupid) man who built his house on the sand.

27 And the rain fell, and the floods and torrents came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great and complete was its fall.”

🔹The Fruits of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-25🔹

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites. If we [claim to] live by the [Holy] Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit [with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage—our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit].

The Lord gave me a vision of fountain pens with super sharp points, the Lord was using these super sharp fountain pens as darts and arrows, the Lord is speaking to His prophets to be arrows in His quiver.

Isaiah 49:1-3 Listen to Me, O islands and coastlands, And pay attention, you peoples from far away. The Lord has called Me from the womb; From the body of My mother He has named Me. He has made My mouth like a sharp sword, In the shadow of His hand He has kept Me hidden; And He has made Me a sharpened arrow, In His quiver He has hidden Me. And [the Lord ] said to Me, “You are My Servant, Israel, In Whom I will show My glory.”

Then the Lord gave me a vision of a mailman’s carrier bag ….. I heard the Lord say send out letters to My churches….. the impression I received was that of Paul sending out letters to the churches and even John with the Lord in the book of Revelations.

Then the Lord gave me a vision of an air pump, the one with the stand on the bottom that you put your feet ontop of, with the handle that you have to push down. The Lord is filling us so full with the wind of His Spirit, that it will be so weighty, full of authority and power, and the strong impression of His prophets will have to release the Word of the Lord, the fire shut up in their bones. He says to His prophets, if people should talk, speak against the Word of the Lord, don’t worry about it. My Words will prove themselves, My words are not just mere words, My words are active, they are action words. They are self-fulfilling as you give voice to the words I have given you to speak. They will not fall to the ground but shall accomplish that which I sent it forth to accomplish.

Isaiah 55:10-11 “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

And I hear the Lord saying….. pen them out and send them out!!!!

🌊LET THE LORD’S BREAKERS OF LOVE ROAR OVER YOU 🌊

By Tiffany Bretana

This morning I was given a vision of the Lord’s waves of love coming and crashing onto a sandcastle on the shore. The sandcastle, the dust of this world, representing things that we have built up within ourselves that try to exalt itself, vain imaginations and every high thing that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God.

Let the Lord’s breakers and waves of His all consuming love crash down the walls of fear, insecurity, judgments, opinions, pride, roots of bitterness, unforgiveness, wounds of the past, defensiveness, offense, rejection, abandonment, whatever it is that would hinder, obstruct, and interrupt you from the freedom He offers through His Amazing Love, to be all that He has called and created you to be. Let the Lord’s love wash over you removing the stings, stains, bruises, and wounds of yesterday and even today. Let Him meet you right where you are.

1 Corinthians 15:47-49 The first man [Adam] is from the earth, earthy [made of dust]; the second Man [Christ, the Lord] is from heaven. As is the earthly man [the man of dust], so are those who are of earth; and as is the heavenly [Man], so are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the earthly [the man of dust], we will also bear the image of the heavenly [the Man of heaven].

🌊 Psalm 42:7-8 🌊

7 [Roaring] deep calls to [roaring] deep at the thunder of Your waterspouts; all Your breakers and Your rolling waves have gone over me.

8 Yet the Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, a prayer to the God of my life.

THE GLORY OF GOD GOES WITH YOU

By Tiffany Bretana

Yesterday evening, while on a prayer call …. I received a vision of a sunflower 🌻 soaking in the sun, but it was vibrant and radiant, in the middle of the sunflower was the abundance of seeds contained within the center of this flower.

Then immediately, I heard the lyrics of the song, Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers.

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

It’s not warm when she’s away

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And she’s always gone too long

Anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where she’s gone

Wonder if she’s gone to stay

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know,

Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone

But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Only darkness every day

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

And this house just ain’t no home

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away

Anytime she goes away

I inquired of the Lord, what was the meaning of this, these two instances by themselves seemed opposites of each other …… to see a vibrant and radiant sunflower full of seeds within it’s core, then hearing …… Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone.

The Lord is saying ….

There are many of you …… whether it was a relationship, marriage, ministry, job, alignments, and connections where others have departed from you, left you, kept you under their thumb, belittled, despitefully used you, and/or cast you aside/away as useless. You refused to repay evil for evil, but repay evil with good. Many felt that you were being a doormat for them to wipe their feet upon, but you were following the leading of the Holy Spirit, for it is the goodness of God that leads to repentance. Don’t get weary in well-doing for at the right time you shall reap a harvest if you do not give up.

For some in some of these situations, you are at the place where the Lord has you turning the other cheek.

Some of you, the Lord has had you to love them from afar by prayer and intercession but yet keeping your distance, as the Lord is mindful of you and knows best, even though it has been hard and even unbearable at times to watch these loved ones from afar, liken to the Father and the prodigal son in Luke 15.

Some of you, the precipice of time has come, you have stood in faith, in prayer and intercession, but yet the hardness of their hearts and the pride of life would not allow these ones to come to their senses. The Lord is saying thus far and no more. The moment has now past, they shall see that once I have lifted My hand …. that the anointing, the blessing, the favor, the glory that resides within you will leave with you. I will plant you where you shall flourish under the brightness and glory of where I am taking you. They will see and know …. I have declared Ichabod (the glory has departed) over that situation. They that have spoken all manner of evil against shall see and know that I shall be glorified in you, for they will see and know that love personified, Christ in you, has departed from their presence.

Word to the wise …. seek the Lord while He may be found. And like the Lord Jesus (Luke 4:17-21), find out where He has you in the Word.

Mark 6:10-11 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

Genesis 31 Jacob Flees from Laban

Genesis 31:36-42 Then Jacob was angry and rebuked Laban, and Jacob answered and said to Laban: “What is my trespass? What is my sin, that you have so hotly pursued me? Although you have searched all my things, what part of your household things have you found? Set it here before my brethren and your brethren, that they may judge between us both! These twenty years I have been with you; your ewes and your female goats have not miscarried their young, and I have not eaten the rams of your flock. That which was torn by beasts I did not bring to you; I bore the loss of it. You required it from my hand, whether stolen by day or stolen by night. There I was! In the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night, and my sleep departed from my eyes. Thus I have been in your house twenty years; I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times. Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely now you would have sent me away empty-handed. God has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.”
