Different Strokes for Different Folks

This very sobering message about sudden judgment coming to the Body of Christ is first being posted as an audio and I will be following with a transcript as soon as it is completed.

Transcript:

As someone who has a prophetic gifting I am used to the fact that very often in my own life, I am a sign and a message for the Body. Isaiah said, “I and my children are signs. In the word called ‘He smites and He Heals’, I shared with you about my husband having a minor stroke and the message of a shot over the bows that came out of that. 2 days after he had that stroke, I had a dream, in which he had a second stroke which was much more severe. There was blood on his lips, his whole weight fell on me and I called for my daughter, whose name means ‘victorious overcomer’, to come and help me. When I woke up, the Lord said to me, “Prepare!”. So I knew He was giving me warning that this was coming. I put the ambulance number on my fridge, warned my daughter quietly and I tried to prepare my heart as much as possible. The Lord did not allow me to share with my husband that he was going to have a second stroke.

At 10pm on 14th September, 66 days after the first one and exactly 12 weeks after I broke my ankle, my husband had the second stroke. Not coincidentally, this was Elul 25th, which started at 6:00 pm; the first day of creation. On this day, God said, “Let there be light” and He separated the light from the darkness, then there was the first night and the dawn of a new day. Notice darkness prevailed FIRST!

I’m first going to just tell you the events that unfolded and then I’m going to share the message the Lord showed me out of this event. So I accompanied my husband to the hospital (this time I was able to, because I was now on one crutch). And when I finally returned home, at 2:30 in the morning on September 15 (which was still the first day of creation), as I lay down in my bed, I heard the song ‘You turn graves into gardens’. And I had a flash dream as I closed my eyes and sank into sleep. I saw a bowl of dessert at eye level and I was taking spoonfuls of it very slowly one after the other and eating them. And I heard the Lord speak. He said, “It is time for just desserts”. When I had digested that, knowing that just desserts mean you reap what you have sown, He said to me, “Taste and see I am good”. So I knew He was assuring me personally that somehow, in the midst of all this, it would be well with me. The Scriptures say ‘Say to the wicked they will reap in accordance with their wickedness, but say to the righteous, it shall be well with you’. So when it’s ‘just desserts’ time, it’s different strokes for different folks —if you excuse my pun. And I was very aware that this second stroke also contained a prophetic message.

I was wondering and praying into the possibility that it was because of the Lord dealing with my husband that he had had the second stroke. Then someone who does not know us, but had been asked to pray for us, sent a word from the Lord that there was no outstanding sin; he had been forgiven and that Satan was trying to bring confusion about the reasons for what was happening. And then the person who got the message also saw caterpillar machines digging into mounds of earth. When I received that, I knew that God was speaking about dealing with the flesh and removing the works of the flesh. And I remembered in Revelation 11:1 that it speaks about measuring those who worship at the altar and leaving out the outer court which would be trampled for 3.5 years. The outer court of the temple represents those in the Body who are fleshly. So once again, God was saying this stroke is a message about dealing with the flesh rampant in His Body—and those who live in a fleshly way, even though they named themselves by the name of the Lord.

2 weeks after my husband had his stroke, he was still in hospital, completely paralyzed on the left side. But he was still able to speak and he was able to feed himself with his right hand. I, of course, was not allowed to visit him because of the covid regulations. He was in a room with 2 beds and the other bed contained a man who had also had a stroke. Suddenly, with warning, in the middle of the morning, this man had another stroke as the physiotherapist tried to wake him up, and he passed away. And I knew immediately that the Lord was using that as part of the sign—that  judgment was coming for the sins of the flesh, and for those who would not wake up, there would be two in a bed and one would be taken and one would be left. I spoke to my husband after this, warning that it was possible he would have yet another stroke, and was he ready to go and meet the Lord? He said that had said everything he wanted to say to his family and he had nothing in his heart that he felt needed to be dealt with.

By the first day of Tabernacles, my husband had started walking with a crutch as his left leg had started to respond. But his left arm was still not responding at all, in spite of much prayer going up. And I asked the Lord why the left arm is not responding? He confirmed that my husband was a sign in the earth and He brought to mind the passage where Jesus spoke about God bringing the people before Him and separating them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And those who were sent to the right hand were told that they were entering into their inheritance; while those who were sent to the left were cut off from the Head. So I want to share that my husband’s stroke is a strong message to the Body of Christ that we are about to suddenly enter the time when God will come and separate His people one from another, like a shepherd separates the sheep and the goats and there will be a sudden cutting off from the Head for those who are sent to the left hand. Understand that until that point of separation, they were all in one mixed multitude labelled the flock of God.

1Pe 4:17  For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will [be] the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the good news (the Gospel) of God? 1Pe 4:18  And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the godless and wicked?

Malachi 3 says that the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to His temple and who can endure the day of His coming because He will come as refiners fire and a fuller’s soap and He will deal strongly with the adulteress and those who oppress their laborers and do not fear God. So what does judgment look like for the household of God? It looks like my husband having had a stroke!

When a stroke happens, a clot of blood forms—my husband’s clot formed in his heart and was then seen carried to the head by the blood. The Word tells us that the life is in the blood, but when a stroke happens, there is a death knell carried by the living blood to the headquarters. And certain portions of the body have all communication with the head severed suddenly, without warning.

Jude verse 14 addresses the issue of the wicked who are hidden reefs, or obstacles hiding under the surface, at the Believers’ love feast. And he calls them ‘trees without fruit at autumn harvest picking time; clouds without rain, doubly dead’—and yet they are hidden amongst believers. They are masquerading in the midst of believers, who seem to be unaware of the impact of these people, who are providing only for themselves. It was of these people that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied

Jud 1:15  To execute judgment upon all and to convict all the impious (unholy ones) of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed [in such an] ungodly [way], and of all the severe (abusive, jarring) things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

Do you remember I said when I had the dream of my husband’s stroke that there was blood on his lips? Now that is similar to the saying when a person has blood on their hands; blood on the lips speaks of the stroke of judgment coming because of the words that are being spoken against the Lord. Jude verse 15 confirms this. The judgment is coming to convict the unrighteous in the Body, to convict them of all the things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him. This is not only words that they’ve spoken in the hearing of others, but words they have had in their thoughts; accusations they have had against the Lord, and words they have spoken against His servants because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and when they do these things to others, they do them to the Lord. So the stroke of judgment comes to these people who are hidden while the Body is a mixed multitude. And then suddenly when the stroke of judgment comes, the separation from the head is executed. Then it is plainly visible who the ungodly sinners in the Body of Christ are.

Now this is quite a difficult message to bring, because it has huge repercussions, but we must understand that when judgment begins with the house of God, it looks similar in a way to the final judgment of the world. The difference is that the desire of God is for conviction to strike and repentance and return to follow. The judgment is unto final mercy for the sinners in the Body of Christ at this juncture. Not everyone who says to Him ‘Lord Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of the Father who is in heaven.

Mat 7:22  Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name? Mat 7:23  And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].

So the people present their defense, saying “Look at all the great spiritual works we have done.” And Jesus said I never knew you and there is a severing, just like when a stroke happens—like with my husband, when the communication of the left side of the body with the brain was immediately cut. That stroke of judgment being executed cut off communication with certain parts of the Body belonging to the Head. I want to warn you with the fear of God in my heart that this is coming for the Body of Christ. The hidden reefs in the Body, providing only for themselves and showing no fruit of repentance are going to be suddenly cut off, so that they will no longer hear the voice of God. You will no longer hear from the Head of the Body. This is going to be a huge shock and trauma to the Body and smaller parts who are connected to the Head by larger or ‘more important’ parts are going to be severely impacted by the stroke of judgment on those they are connected to. Death will enter some parts of the Body and they will appear lifeless and unresponsive—even though they are still physically part of the Body.

This will bring a strong reaction of denial and disbelief… surely this is not happening! When my husband had this stroke and we went to the emergency room, he was in total disbelief and kept saying, “What makes you think I’ve had a stroke?” and I would say to him, “The one side of your body is not functioning” and still he would say, “No, I’m fine, I’m fine!” but for everybody who was observing him, it was completely clear that a certain portion of the body had been completely cut off from the head; not receiving any messages from headquarters. Do you remember that in the first stroke, the Lord said to me that it’s a shot over the bows; a final warning that if certain people in the Body’s way of life was not changed, then God was coming to deal with them. This second stroke is a sign of the judgment arriving! God has come to execute judgment, as Jude says, upon the ungodly for all the ungodly deeds which they have committed and for the severe things which they have spoken against Him. Please also read Malachi to get a picture of what the atmosphere in the Body is going to be like when this sudden arrival of the Lord executing judgment on His house begins.

In Exodus 32:33, the Lord said to Moses ‘him who has sinned against Me, I will block him out of My book’. That no-one can take the place of anyone else during that time… “In the days when I punish, I will visit their sins upon them”. I want to also say that the left side alludes to the hidden or secret things, things being done in secret and not openly evident to others. But God sees and hears everything. He hears every thought of your heart; He sees the things you do in secret and judgment is coming openly. It’s just desserts time. This message comes with a very strong warning that there is a possibility of you being blotted out of His book completely and losing your salvation. Now I know there are some people who teach that you cannot lose your salvation but Paul himself said that after ministering to others and bringing them to the Lord, he did not want to use his own standing with God.

The Strong Right Arm of the Lord

When my husband first had a stroke and he was in bed in the hospital, any movement he did had to be executed with the right side of his body. Because he does gym, his right arm is strong. The position of the whole body was affected by my husband’s strong right arm and right hand. What the Lord said to me is that this is a sign of the strong right arm of the Lord Company entering into their inheritance at this point in time. Those who were sent to the left hand are cut off from the Head and no longer hear the voice of God—and the Body of Christ is going to suddenly be cast on to a bed of suffering and affliction; greatly impeded in their movement and finding difficulty in functioning. The Body will be slow and the movement of the whole Body will be achieved by this strong right arm company, who are in close connection with the Head and receiving clear instruction from Him.

During this stint in hospital, every evening at the changing of the nursing shift at 7:00 PM, there was a nurse who came on duty for the night shift and she would walk down the passages and sing a chorus ‘Jesus is my Rock in a dry and thirsty land’. She was releasing a sound in the halls of suffering which empowered and encouraged the weary. Every time I phoned my husband, he would say to me, “Jesus is my Rock in a dry and thirsty land!” The spirit really impressed upon me that during this time of affliction and suffering that the Body of Christ is going to enter, we will experience the fact that Jesus is our Rock in a dry and thirsty land. From the time of the onset of this stroke, my husband never lost his ability to speak and think clearly. This indicates that during this season of affliction for the Body, those who are his mouth piece, having separated the precious from the vile, will still release very clear and specific messages from the Head.

My husband is also able to feed himself with his right hand quite normally and swallow normally and what the Lord said to me was that this was a sign that the Body of Christ would be fed small regular portions during this time of tribulation by the Sons of the Right Hand, and that those who are a part of His mouth would clearly communicate messages because they know the mind of Christ and seek to encourage and nurture and build strength into those in the Body in its present state of distress.

This separation between sheep and goats is also spoken of in Ezekiel 34:17 where the Lord sees He will judge between sheep and sheep, between the rams and the great he-goats who muddy the waters of the Word. He is coming to judge his Body and render recompense to His enemies. Isaiah 66 says a sound will be heard IN the temple rendering recompense —or just desserts. The temple of the Lord is His Body. So it is clear some of God’s enemies are in His temple or His Body. This is why judgment must come to the Body first.

The Staff of His Word

After a while receiving physiotherapy in the hospital, my husband found his left leg began to respond and he was able to walk with a crutch. Just like I am walking with the crutch —do you remember the message about leaning upon the staff of His Word with every step? So my husband was depicting a sign of the whole weight of the Body being upheld by the strong right arm company and the sons of the right hand, and the staff of His Word providing balance, helping to rightly divide the Word of God. Cast your weight upon the Lord and He will sustain you.

In this 3.5 years season of trial ahead, those who are sons of the right hand and those who are part of the strong right arm of the Lord will be working in connection with the Head and moving the Body where it needs to go. They have unimpeded access to the mind of Christ in a very different season for the Body of Christ. Each change of position of the Body will be slow, sober and calculated. Now as we know with a stroke, physiotherapy within the first 3 months or so after the stroke causes the brain to sometimes form new pathways to the limbs, so that function is restored. This depicts the truth that after a season of repentance and the washing with the water of the Word, new pathways for functioning are made and some of the limbs that have been cut off have a different way of connecting to the Head. Hosea 6:1says, ‘Come, let us return to the Lord, for he has wounded that He may heal, He has stricken so that He may bind us up’. I want to stress that the stroke of judgment that is coming; the tearing and the striking that is coming is in order ultimately to bring healing and binding up to the Body. The stroke of judgment comes because of sin in the Body and is redemptive. It is sent in order to convict; in order for them to say, “Come, let us return to the Lord. We understand that He’s torn so that we return to Him, that He may heal and bind us up.” Remember in psalm 118 is the scripture that says ‘Before I was afflicted, I went astray. But now His Word do I keep.

Hos 6:2  After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him.

Now the reviving and the quickening is like that limb that begins to respond as new pathways being built between the brain and affected parts of the body. In the beginning, my husband had to take his left hand with his right hand and move it, raise it up and stretch it out. He had to help his left leg to move with his right hand in the beginning. This depicts the sons of the right hand moving others that have been cut off and positioning them as they should be, relative to the head. Then new brain pathways start to be built. New connections with the Head—a different way of connecting to the Head.

Hosea 6 says after 2 days, He will revive us. My husband had a stroke on September 14. At the end of October, which is 6 weeks or 42 days after he had the stroke, his left arm suddenly began to respond. He was talking to our son. on the telephone and all of a sudden, his left arm raised itself up, without him consciously thinking of moving it. That is a reviving of a limb that seemed dead and cut off. When I broke my ankle, the Spirit said the predicted 42 days would be a type of the 3&1/2 years of affliction suffered by believers as the man of sin tries to wear out the saints. My husband is also depicting the woman in Revelation 12 who flees to the place prepared; where she is fed and kept safe for 42 months. In the 3.5 years when the Body is afflicted and moving very differently, feeling much humbled and going through a very difficult time, they will be ministered to by the sons of the right hand. This is the manchild who is caught up to the right hand of God and used to feed and guide and minister to the Body.

Hosea 6 is very clear as to why there is a harvest of judgment coming!! Read right until verse 11:

Hos 6:3  Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord [to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him]. His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the [heavy] rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth. Hos 6:4  O Ephraim, what shall I do with you? [says the Lord] O Judah, what shall I do with you? For your [wavering] love and kindness are like the night mist or like the dew that goes early away. Hos 6:5  Therefore have I hewn down and smitten them by means of the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; My judgments [pronounced upon them by you prophets] are like the light that goes forth. Hos 6:6  For I desire and delight in dutiful steadfast love and goodness, not sacrifice, and the knowledge of and acquaintance with God more than burnt offerings. Hos 6:7  But they, like [less-privileged] men and like Adam, have transgressed the covenant; there have they dealt faithlessly and treacherously with Me. Hos 6:8  Gilead is a city of evildoers; it is tracked with bloody [footprints]. Hos 6:9  And as troops of robbers lie in wait for a man, so the company of priests murder on the road toward Shechem; yes, they commit villainy and outrages. Hos 6:10  I have seen a horrible thing in the house of Israel! There harlotry and idolatry are found in Ephraim; Israel is defiled.

Hos 6:11  Also, O Judah, there is a harvest [of divine judgment] appointed for you; when I would return My people from their captivity [in which they are slaves to the misery brought on by their own sins],

So we see that the judgment of the Lord is appointed to return God’s people from the captivity they are in as a result of their sin. It is executed by the words of His mouth spoken through His prophets. Remember my husband had this stroke on the day God sent light and then separated light and darkness and named them for what they were.

Job 22:21  Acquaint now yourself with Him [agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will] and be at peace; by that [you shall prosper and great] good shall come to you. Job 22:22  Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in your heart. Job 22:23  If you return to the Almighty [and submit and humble yourself before Him], you will be built up; if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents, Job 22:24  If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth], Job 22:25  And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure, Job 22:26  Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. Job 22:27  You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows.

My husband has been listening to the Bible on audio day in, day out, since he had the stroke. He has been saturating himself in the Word, receiving His instruction, as Job 22 says. I had a wonderful conversation with him 3 days ago. He said he has realized again the incredible importance of having a continually repentant heart towards God. This is what the stroke of judgment is intended to bring about in the Body of Christ.

Rom 2:6  For He will render to every man according to his works [justly, as his deeds deserve]: Rom 2:7  To those who by patient persistence in well-doing [springing from piety] seek [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life. Rom 2:8  But for those who are self-seeking and self-willed and disobedient to the Truth but responsive to wickedness, there will be indignation and wrath. Rom 2:9  [And] there will be tribulation and anguish and calamity and constraint for every soul of man who [habitually] does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile). Rom 2:10  But glory and honor and [heart] peace shall be awarded to everyone who [habitually] does good, the Jew first and also the Greek

Where it speaks about separating the sheep from the goats in Ezekiel 34, there is a wonderful promise for those who have been sent to the right hand by the great Shepherd of the sheep:

Eze 34:25  And I will confirm with them a covenant of peace and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land, and [My people] shall dwell safely in the wilderness, desert, or pastureland and sleep [confidently] in the woods.

Here we have a picture of Revelation 12 and the woman who flees to the wilderness. That woman is going to have the covenant of peace confirmed and the evil beasts that have been attacking from hidden places are going to cease out of the land. For a long season from within the Body, attack has come towards those who are trying to live godly in Christ Jesus; towards the true prophets. They have come under attack from within the Body. And God is going to cause those evil beasts to cease out of the land. He is going to cut them off. Jude says he’s coming with 10 thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon the ones who are the hidden reefs, mingled in and masquerading as true saints of God in order to provide for themselves. That is part of the judgment coming, but those who are truly His, holy & set-apart, are going to have the covenant of peace confirmed with them and they will be in absolute safety in the wilderness.

Eze 34:26  And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing, and I will cause the showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. Eze 34:27  And the tree of the field shall yield its fruit and the earth shall yield its increase; and [My people] shall be secure in their land, and they shall be confident and know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bars of their yoke and have delivered them out of the hand of those who made slaves of them. Eze 34:28  And they shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the earth devour them, but they shall dwell safely and none shall make them afraid. Eze 34:29  And I will raise up for them a planting of crops for renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land nor bear the reproach of the nations any longer. Eze 34:30  Then shall they know [positively] that I, the Lord their God, am with them and that they, the house of Israel, are My people, says the Lord God, Eze 34:31  And that you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, are [only] men and I am your God, says the Lord God.

When He comes suddenly with the stroke of judgment and some in the Body find themselves cut off from the Head, I am reminded of the woman who recently took part in the vac-in-8-tion trials and then said, “they’ve killed God. I cannot hear the voice of God anymore!” To me, that spoke so strongly of the situation with my husband’s left arm being able to hear messages from the brain. Some are going to be cut off when the Lord gathers the nations before him. That word for ‘nations’ means all the people and tribes. I know there is a doctrine that sees that nations can be sheep or goat nations depending on whether they support Israel. I’m sorry but I do not see that in the Word of God. We stand before Him as individuals. Daniel stood before Him as an individual in an ungodly nation. The first judgment that comes is one falling upon the Body of Christ. He separates the peoples; he separates people —you’re a sheep, you’re a goat. Those who are sent to His right hand experience a release of the inheritance that has been stored up with them beyond the reach of change or decay. He’s coming to be glorified in His people before He comes to take them home. The Lord said to me, “Transformation comes before transference”. In other words, the glory within comes before the catching away.

May the Lord bless you through this experience that my husband and I have been going through, being signs in the earth, to give you understanding of the times. May He minister understanding and wisdom and encouragement and strength and direction to all those who hear this message, in the mighty name of Jesus.

  1. It’s a really really interesting word Christine. When you said your husband had gym arms I struggled to hear the word ‘gym’. I was wondering what your husband’s name was then….surely not James or Jim! But anyway, Elijah came to mind, and the 3.5 years of no rain. James 5:17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. I am so pleased your and your husband’s trials are over – by faith and soon by manifestation. Strokes are terrible things. I pray you are all well asap.

  2. Thank you and Be blessed. Enriching word and the sign depiction through your family.
    It is truly a perilous and distressing time for the church as well as the peoples of the earth.

    Be blessed and may the Lord bring complete healing to you both.
    in Him, Amen
    Paul

  3. This is a serious and powerful word of warning.

    I feel prompt to action in repentance in front the Lord.

    Thank you for delivering it to us and for sharing these difficult personal experiences – it helps me connect the dots in my own life.

    May the Lord increase our obedience and the fear of God within us, and bring us back inside His green pastures.

    Praying for an edge of protection over your family, covering inside the Lord’s ark, and full restoration of health in Jesus’s Name!!

  4. I read each message and I am grateful. Thank you sister.

    The Lord has often used my life in a similar way to speak to me. My youngest child of 5 was conceived only weeks after I gave my life to Jesus…which symbolically was on her older brothers birthday. Her life has been a sign for me. Each of her stages of development the Lord showed me my parallel. The same was true for my second son whose birthday I surrender on. He was a son of the flesh and of my own provison. I didn’t consult the Lord I insisted on making my own way. He has always been a sign of rebellion and the Lord has taught me so much about myself in the journey. My second is now 19 and the baby is now 12 and I have learned much on the path. I love that you shared that aspect of the way the Lord speaks and teaches you. Encouraging to me.

  5. Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear about the strokes. My husband recently had one, and it is among the scariest things we have ever experienced. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
