Winnowing our Words


Since the discovery that the news report concerning the miracle birth was found to be full of inconsistencies, the Father has been showing me how my past few posts have been connected. He referred back to the two freezers of rotten food and the small remnant which remained good to eat once the power was removed. A large store of flesh was displayed for what it was once the power source was removed and the valuable was preserved for use. Then He pointed out that my word ‘The Night of Trial’ was not ‘rotten meat’ but contained mixture — partly my own fleshly understanding; a portion of my own thoughts after reading a news report – and this was served up alongside that which had the breath and life of the Spirit in it. In fact, on the plate I held out, I had actually stirred the one into the other, linking the fleshly and the Spirit-given. Oh dear… This is designed to give anyone eating it indigestion. The Word says ‘that which comes from the flesh is flesh and that which originates from the Spirit is spirit’ (John 3:6). When mixed together, one could almost call this a hybrid meal! And that is not something that can be just brushed under the carpet or lightly excused.

It is because of exactly this kind of smorgasbord that the current prophetic movement has strayed into divination and accepting the input of any ‘voice’ that speaks in their inner ear. My freezers contained a mixture of both meat/flesh and true grain, both the rancid fat of beasts and pure, wholesome butter. No wonder God said these freezers represent His people. We are full of mixture and the tragedy is that this kind of diet has been served up for so long from the pulpits of the modern-day church, that most of the sheep are completely unable to tell which mouthful is flesh and which has its origin in the Spirit of Truth. In fact, that which is fleshly can whip up quite a bit of emotion, a few shivers down the spine and stroke the soul quite expertly.

We see what it looks like when the power of God is removed from the midst of His people in the story where Elijah confronts the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18:19). Those false prophets acted like maniacs for the whole morning and got no response from Heaven. God’s power was not manifested for them and they basically displayed themselves as ‘rotten meat’; their words were not good to listen to or consume. During the whole drought, the people of God only ate the spiritual diet dished up by the prophets who ate at Jezebel’s table, because she had slaughtered the true prophets (and the spirit of Jezebel, I have learnt, falls under one of the main principalities of the marine kingdom ie. Water spirits). Elijah on the other hand had been set apart unto the Lord for the last 3&1/ years, hearing only His voice and eating only what He supernaturally provided. And when Elijah prayed and obeyed God’s instructions, Heaven showed up to confirm him as God’s bondservant.

What God was actually doing in this showdown was cleaning out His ‘freezers’; sorting between the defiled vessels and the pure, the nourishing and the poisonous, so that His people could be delivered from those who only knew how to serve up a fleshly word. And now, in His house, God has declared He is separating between the fleshly and those who truly contain the Spirit of Life. And the fleshly vessels will be removed from being His mouthpieces. The remnant which remains will minister true nourishment.

When praying about all this, the Spirit repeatedly brought to mind this verse:

Jer 15:19  …and if you separate the precious from the vile, you shall be My mouthpiece…

So, not only is God separating between sheep and sheep and sifting the company of prophets, He is also requiring a separation WITHIN the hearts of the sheep. The holy must become more holy. That word ‘vile’ is the same Hebrew word I have mentioned before – H2151 ‘zalal’, meaning ‘prodigal, worthless, glutton, riotous eater’. It is used in Deut 21:20, translated ‘glutton’, Proverbs 23:20 translated ‘riotous eater’ of flesh. A glutton is someone who indulges excessively in food or drink. It makes me think of those meetings where people would show up to ‘drink’ of what they thought was the Spirit of God and then fall around like lunatics, claiming that this was a work of the HOLY Spirit. The Greek word for ‘flesh’ means both ‘the meat of an animal’ and ‘to be carnally minded’.

So I really sense the Lord saying that His people need to separate the precious from the carnal within our own understandings and our own spiritual thought processes. We must not feed ourselves or others on the mixture of thoughts, some fleshly and some of the Spirit. This means a separation and a sorting of our thought life. Imagine me digging in my freezers… I had to grab each bag of meat, smell it and declare it stinking or safe for consumption by others. A mixed thought life cannot produce a power-filled pure conversation for others to benefit from. I taught the following verse to my children when they were young and it’s an excellent plumbline for speech:

Eph 4:29  Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it.

The Lord has an amazing way of confirming the point He is making. This very week, a good friend of mine in USA had to have a growth lasered out of her tongue. She has had this lump right in the middle of her tongue on and off for many years. Sometimes it flared up and at others it disappeared, only to return. She kind of knew she should deal with it, but just put it off repeatedly. She was too busy working and passionately pursuing God to deal with an area in her flesh that needed cutting out.

So the laser separated the precious from the vile within her mouth, just as the Scripture in Jeremiah 15:19 speaks of! The tangible presence of the Lord was in that room as it was removed and her testimony is that she feels like a different person with it gone. Before her operation, a sister was praying for her and saw a sword touching her tongue and she is personally testifying that a burning coal has touched her mouth, just as it did with Isaiah! (Isaiah 6:6,7)

If we want to be God’s mouthpiece, whether it is to our neighbour or on a wider platform, God is now demanding a separation from all that is carnal, fleshly or deathly within our hearts, because out of the abundance of our hearts, our mouths speak. He will not have His power associated any longer with that which is carnality dressed up in spiritual robes. Nor will He tolerate mixture any more. And this is a message addressed to His remnant. It’s not only for the big, flashy charismatic TV evangelists. There is more flesh in our freezers than we realise!

We cannot bless God and curse man made in His image – even if they do cut in front of you in the traffic! We cannot convey the messages from Jezebel’s table on our mobile devices without a second thought and then demand God show up to confirm our own ministry. Nor can we lean on our own understanding, life experience or education. Jesus chose unlearned fishermen as disciples, but with the Word of God in their mouths and God confirming that word with signs and wonder, people knew they had spent time in the presence of Jesus.

So, it took a laser to remove that growth from my friend’s tongue – a laser is a concentrated beam of light. God’s Word is a light to our paths. If we are to be counted as those God trusts with His words in the season we are entering, we have to make an appointment and ask Him to apply the laser light of His Word to every vile place within. That area which has been a continually reappearing problem is not going to go away by itself. And we have to sit very still before Him for long enough for that Word to do a deep work.

Joh 6:63  It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.

Do you desire to be considered trustworthy as a messenger working for the Kingdom of in these days? Are you willing to let Him use the sword of His Word of Light upon your heart and mind? He knows exactly what needs cutting out. The Sword of the Spirit is a precision instrument. He will separate the precious from the vile, destroy that which carries the odor of death and preserve that which is valuable and useful to Him. So, as a demonstration of this very action, He instructed me to take the post called ‘The Night of Trial’ and to separate the precious from the vile in it and then to post the pared down message which contains the breath of God. As He said to me, “It is not necessary to prophesy from the changeable winds of earth. Speak from My heart a word that is borne aloft by the winds of the heavenly realm. Call that which is not into being. You are moving past the place of observing that which is and drawing parallels. My remnant will no longer operate from the shifting ground of mixture but will fully lay hold of and possess the realm of the Spirit and speak a pure word from pure lips.”

Why is the Spirit putting such an emphasis on this now? Because there is coming a strong manifestation of STRANGE FLESH and STRANGE FIRE – the fallen ones will begin to manifest more brazenly as they perform the opening act for the revealing of the Antichrist. And the remnant must be WHOLLY set -apart in purity of soul and spirit. Otherwise we will be vulnerable to their deception and seduction. Jesus said that satan had nothing in Him. We need to ask the Spirit to bring us to the place of being able to say the same.

  1. What a blessed most edifying message! Thank you for sharing and God bless you sister.

  2. Hello Sister Christine. I thought you might be interested in seeing what Father is requiring of His remnant.

    A Broken Spirit, A Broken and A Contrite Heart
    Psalm 51:17

    Father in heaven, the greatest honor in my life is the pleasure of being in Your presence. As I come before Your throne of grace, I enter into Your “gates with thanksgiving and into” Your “courts with praise.” By Your grace, I “have been saved through faith” in Your Son, Jesus Christ. It is Your precious “gift,” giving me the wonderful and awesome privilege to come before You, to speak with You.
    Ps 100:4, Eph 2:8

    Sometimes, when I stop to think about it, I feel overwhelmed that You would permit me to enter into Your presence before Your holy throne of righteousness. You are the Creator of all things that exist whether in heaven, throughout the universe or here on earth. It makes me wonder, “Who am I, that You would even care anything about me?” But, as soon as the question enters my mind, the answer comes quickly back to me. “For God so loved the world,” and that includes me. Thank You, my Lord. Your grace is truly amazing and overwhelming. Jn 3:16

    Being with You, Heavenly Father, is where I feel safe, protected from the evils and ugliness in this world. You have accepted me not because of who I am or what I have accomplished but because of who You are, a loving Father. Nothing on earth provides the blessing of real peace that I always experience when I am with You, and “every fountain of delight springs up from Your life within me.” I never want to leave Your presence. Being with You, feeling close to You is where I want to be for all of eternity, but there is a deeper, more intimate relationship with You that You have made possible for me. “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for” You, “for the living God.”
    Ps 87:7TPT, Ps 42:2

    I want to draw closer to You, Heavenly Father, and do not want my “iniquities” to separate me from You or my “sins” to hide Your face from me so that You “will not hear.” I confess my sins, sometimes several times a day, because I know You are “faithful and just to forgive” my sins and will “cleanse” me “from all unrighteousness.” Your word assures me that I am forgiven, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. Something is missing in our communion, and our fellowship seems limited. It’s like You are in some other place away from me, where I cannot reach You, and I don’t know where to look to find You. Father, why is there such a distance between us? I know You have not left me, but where and when did I leave You? I want to “draw near to” You so You “will draw near to” me, and I want to know my Lord Jesus Christ. Isaiah 59:2, 1 Jn 1:9, James 4:8

    Heavenly Father, I want to know the heart of my Lord. I want to know His concerns, how He feels, what He thinks, and what He wants for His creation. I want to know how He would help people and how He would minister to them if He could be here in my place, and I want to know how He sees me. I want to know what needs to change in my life, the corrections I need to make and what I must do to draw closer to Him. I long for the joy of knowing Him, to really know Him. To embrace the blessing of perfect intimacy with Him and to be in harmony with the loving rhythm of His heart are my greatest desires. Heavenly Father, I trust You to show me how to “seek” You and “find” You, when I “search” for You with all my heart. You promised that You “will be found.” You said I can find You because I am searching for You with all of my heart, but there is something standing between us. I know what it is, and I want to do something about about it. Jer 29:13-14

    There is too much of me left in me, too much of my flesh remains that must be removed. Just like the Apostle Paul, “I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.” I know exactly what Paul meant when he said, “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?. . . I am carnal” just like the Apostle Paul said about himself, and I know that my flesh and carnal nature must be removed. Rom 7:18-19,24,14

    Lord Jesus, You said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” You also said, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.” Please help me understand this. Tell me what to do. Reveal to me how I must “lose” my life for Your sake. This is what I want, what is required of me, what must be done in me, but I don’t know how to do it if You don’t send Your word to guide me. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path,” and I trust Your word to guide me in what I must do. I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior, and will follow Him as my Lord with faith that “comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” I understand that Your word will be my guide, and I will follow You by faith as You reveal to me what I must do. Lk 9:23-24, Ps 119:105, Rom 10:17

    Father, You said I must deny myself, deny “self.” This is the most glaring and deceptive spiritual issue that I have wrestled with all of my life. It is unmistakable because I see it so clearly in me. It is also subtly deceptive because “self” is who I am, who I want to be, who I have become. I am self-oriented. Everything that happens around me, to me, in me, for me, with me, or against me is filtered through my “self” awareness and is how I see myself being personally affected by the issues of life. My focus is on me, and I see it in my interaction with other people and in the meditations of my heart when I am alone. I dwell on how I am being treated by others, if I am accepted, appreciated or respected. This is the problem I see, Heavenly Father, that You are revealing to me by the light of Your word, so I am asking You to tell me, show me how I can be “crucified with Christ” so that I am dead to self and can stop being so self-centered. Lk 9:23, Gal 2:20

    I view the world around me as circumstances relate to my well-being. I question how life experiences affect my peace of mind and how I am being treated by others. I am happy if I am being treated fairly and with respect but find myself sulking over adverse circumstances, thinking that I deserve better treatment. Adversity leads me to frustration. My impatience causes me to become irritable. I do not react well when I am mistreated or disrespected. I don’t know how to “love” my “enemies,” and I cannot “bless those who curse” me. I cannot “do good to those who hate” me or “pray for those who spitefully use” me and “persecute” me. Even though my Lord Jesus Christ has instructed me to do these things, I cannot find it in my heart to respond to adversity this way. For years I tried to pretend that my carnal nature did not matter and tried to convince myself that my besetting sins were just an expression of my fallen nature and that my soul has been redeemed. Father in heaven, You know that I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord, and I want to serve Him, to be faithful and loyal to Him, but I cannot live this kind of self-centered life any longer. Matt 5:44

    I search my mind and soul, trying to discover any doubtful habits that do not please You, but many times I rationalize my behavior instead of resisting a questionable act. I try to hide from my secret sins, believing that I will be forgiven, but Father in heaven, I do not want to live this life of self-indulgence. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Ps 139:23-24

    Sometimes I am intimidated by other people and try to hide my faults and limitations from them. I have a deceitful disposition, even to the point of being dishonest with myself. I pretend to be something that I am not just so others will think more highly of me. I may even exaggerate, needing the approval of others, so I am appreciated and respected. In conversations, when a particular subject is being discussed, I become impatient, itching for the next opportunity to express my opinion. I have a need to be heard and recognized for what I have to say, to be admired by others. Father, I am self-centered, and I ask You to “examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my mind and my heart.” Deliver me, O Lord, from this self-deception, and “let nothing be done” in me “through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind” help me to “esteem others better than” myself. Ps 26:2, Phil 2:3

    It is hard for me to let go of the past hurts and emotional wounds caused by others. I hold a grudge against them, and it seems impossible for me to forget past grievances and misunderstandings. Father, please help me to forgive those who have hurt me and forget the hurtful things that have grieved my mind and soul. Matt 6:12, 14-15

    I am frustrated when disturbances interrupt my sense of peace, and I am annoyed when others are rude and uncaring. I become impatient with those who are not punctual and are inconsiderate of my feelings, and I recognize a condemning spirit in me when I observe rude behavior in others. When my feelings have been hurt and my ego is wounded, I feel sorry for myself even though I know that self-pity is simply a secret, subtle form of pride. Father, help me “not to think of” myself “more highly than” I “ought to think.” I am aware that I have a spirit of pride. I have a secret yearning to be recognized and admired, and I have a secret desire to make a name for myself. My self-seeking spirit reveals itself within me when things don’t go my way. I am unable to accept criticism without seeking retaliation. When I receive correction, even when I am wrong, I sometimes recoil in anger, especially when someone of lesser stature or authority tries to correct me. Resentment rises up in me, and I often retaliate when I am disapproved. My disposition resents being contradicted, and I may respond with hateful, heated words. I become touchy and emotionally sensitive to the slightest provocation or insult. I am easily offended when my assistance and opinions are rejected or if I am challenged for what I believe. I become defensive and criticize the flaws I see in others, especially if I am unnoticed or overlooked. Father, I admit that I try to build up my ego so I will be admired and respected. Please help me to “bridle” my tongue so that my “own heart” does not deceive me, and teach me to understand that “a soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.”
    Rom 12:3, James 1:26, Prov 15:1-2

    Father, You have revealed to me that I am not completely available to You. I am stubborn, and I realize that my strong self-will and feeling of self-sufficiency create in me an unteachable spirit. I can be unyielding with a headstrong disposition, and I become irritable when my plans and purposes are blocked and my interests are not considered important. I want to serve You, and I try to accomplish a work in Your kingdom, but it is always on my terms. I have rushed ahead of You many times, thinking I was fulfilling Your calling; but in the light of Your word, I was not following Your directions or obeying Your instructions. I was pursuing what I thought was Your will. Many times I stepped out in ministry to do a work for You but did not even consult You about it. I just assumed You would bless it because it was a work for You, but You were not in it. I have squandered many opportunities and wasted many years pursuing my own dreams. My plans and purposes have interfered with Your calling upon my life, and now I want to make up for my years of mistakes. I understand that “there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death,” death to Your calling on my life, death to Your plans for me, death to the way You have set before me, and death to my service in Your kingdom. From now on, I will trust in You, my Lord, with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways I will acknowledge You, and You shall direct my paths. Prov 14:12, 3:5-6

    Moses spoke to You “face to face,” heavenly Father, “as a man speaks to his friend.” Being in Your presence changed him so dramatically that Your glory shone on “the skin of his face,” causing Aaron and the children of Israel to be “afraid to come near him.” Is it possible for us today to know You like that, to be so intimate in our fellowship with You that we lose ourselves in Your presence? I know there is nothing I can do to earn Your love because You already love “the world,”and Your love “was manifested toward us” through Jesus Christ our Lord, but I want to know You as my Father. I don’t want to be a spiritual orphan any longer, thinking that I have to prove myself to You, to perform for you, to accomplish meritorious goals in order to receive Your affirmation. I wasted many years doing these very things, believing that I needed to earn Your favor and approval, but now I want to be Your Son, having complete liberty to dream, to pursue, to seek and search for anything and everything that You inspire me to do. I have never known this kind of freedom from self, realizing that it’s not about me anymore. It’s all about You and who I am in Christ Jesus. A life of intimacy with You, O Lord, is a life of supernatural freedom from the guilt of sin, the shame of defeat, the fear in the world, the tyranny of worry and the stress of anxiety. Ex 33:11, 34:29-30, Jn 3:16, 1 Jn 4:9-10

    Father in heaven, Your thoughts are not my thoughts, neither are my ways Your ways. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are” Your ways higher than my ways and Your thoughts than my thoughts. For this reason, I ask You to empower and anoint “the mind of Christ” in me to cast “down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” so that “the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart” will “be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.” Please forgive my sins. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me,” and give me “clean hands and a pure heart” so I “may stand in” Your “holy place.”
    Isaiah 55:8-9, 1 Cor 2:16, 2 Cor 10:5, Ps 19:14, Ps 51:10, Ps 24: 3-4

    Your word, O God, is “like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces,”so I ask You to send the authority of Your word and crush the overt sins that You see in me, and send the “fire” of Your word to incinerate my secret, mental attitude sins. Empower the “sword” of Your word to cut away any vestiges of my flesh and sever the carnal nature that is in me so I can finish my life better than I lived it. “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” I present to you, Holy Father, my body a living sacrifice, to be holy, acceptable to You, my God, which is my reasonable service. I am no longer conformed to this world, being transformed by the renewing of my mind that I may prove “what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Father in heaven, “let this mind be in” me “which was also in Christ Jesus.” It is You who works in me “both to will and to do for” Your “good pleasure.”
    Jer 23:29, Heb 4:12, Gal 2:20, Rom 12:1-2, Phil 2:5, 13

    Father in heaven, I pray that You, “the God of peace,” Yourself will sanctify me completely, that I will no longer have a mind of my own or the will to follow my own ways, and I pray that my “whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of” my Lord Jesus Christ. I no longer belong to this world. I am here only to serve You, to love You, to honor You with my life and bring You glory. When I turn my eyes upon You, Lord Jesus, and look full in Your wonderful face, the things of earth grow strangely dim in the light of Your glory and grace. I love you, Lord Jesus. You are the “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
    I Thess 5:23, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus by Helen H. Lemmel, Rev 19:16

  3. Dear Christine, Thank you so much for your critical honesty. It matters so much. Tom’s comments afterwards are also spot on. This is where Father God wants all His precious children. Completely and intimately abandoned to being one with His vision, desires and purposes. If we have ears to hear, what has been shared will take us deeper and further into the purity you so clearly portrayed for us. God help me to be filled with that power-filled purity that will remove me from the mixture of flesh and spirit that You abhor, in Your precious Name Yeshua. Amen

  4. Keep your prophetic messages coming, please, precious Sister Christine. We know you are a true messenger of the Holy Spirit. Even if the story about the lady with the 10 babies turned out to be a hoax, there was still a very important message behind the blog you sent out, which still greatly encouraged me. Please continue to share what God presses on your heart to share – it strengthens and prepares us so much for what is coming. Don’t let the enemy push you down – rise up above it, precious woman of God. You have been called for such a time as this and we love you very, very much!

  5. God bless all of your SOULS in the name of Jesus ALLELUIA


    Satan tries to get us to look back! Luke 17:32 ¹⁷REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE. we must hold on to the promise of being a new creation in Messiah Yeshua our old man dead stomped dead refusing to allow the old man to arise in us ever again. We have been blessed with a renewed mind new ways of thinking with Ruach Ha”Qodesh! Rebuking the Father of lies and allowing the Ruach Ha”Qodesh Fire to redirect our NEW THOUGHTS, NEW SONGS OF DELIVERANCE SURROUNDING OUR BELOVED’S, LOOKING AT STEPPING STONES INSTEAD OF STUMBLING BLOCKS AND LOOK AT THINGS IN ABBA’S PERSPECTIVE OF what lesson is he teaching me ? What attributes am I obtaining ? What character am I building on to? What virtues did I obtain? SHIFTING FROM worldly eyes to our Spiritual eyes of Abba! Don’t give a foot hold to The Devil! When he tries this I use the opposite Spirit and PRAISE ABBA, Yeshua FOR THE DELIVERANCE AND HEALINGS IN THE NAME OF Yeshua! We are truly BLESSED WITH PERFECT LOVE in our Heavenly Father! ALLELUIA AND I INSTEAD USE IT TO GLORIFY HIM on how he has TRANSFORMED MY LIFE! ABBA AND Yeshua ALLELUIA GLORY TO Yahuah Tseca”oth ALLELUIA

    Yeshua, Amen

  6. Thank you sister. I know we all want to be separated unto HIM. This world is not our home but it is so very easy to get wrapped up in it. I experienced a mixed conversation today. Your words are very convicting. I knew I was chopping down what God was building up within a good friend of mine because I was talking about eternal salvation along with complaints about things that should not effect us if we truly trust the LORD. We are not here for ourselves. We have been pulled out of death’s grip. The ONLY reason our Heavenly Father keeps us here is so that we may glorify HIM in all we do and say. It is not about us. It is ALL about His Glory who is His Son who is His MERCY who is His Judgement who is His LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Please LORD – separate our flesh from your SPIRIT and use us in these days.
