Word of the Lord for 2024

Apostle James Cole

     We, as the Church of Jesus christ, are seeing played out in the natural what is taking place in the spiritual. As Israel is being attacked both physically and verbally all over the world, so, too, is the church. As the enemy and his demons are causing the powers that be to attack Israel, so he is also causing attacks against the church here in the United States and in other places around the world.
     In the coming days, the warfare will become more and more intense. The battles will be heated, and the siege will be longer. There will be a tax from recognizable enemies and even some from unforeseen personages. The church must become more and more alert staying ready to war and to stand!
     The lukewarm will be faced with a  great decision. This is true for both the individual and for the local church. Father is going to remove the middle ground. The time of waffling is over. Each individual will have to determine in their heart if they will stand and war, or if they will leave and go back into the world. There will be some who see but have no understanding of the times or the seasons. They will not know what to do. God is calling to them to determine where they will be - in His camp or in the camp of the enemy! God is removing the middle ground of compromise!!
     Local churches will be challenged to examine their message and stance. Are they truly equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, or, are they preaching a lukewarm gospel? Are they training saints for warring, or, are they preaching and escapist gospel? Mini churches will take up the call and beill allow the fire of God and the message of "kingdom" to come forth in the body and in the Earth.
     Some Churches may decide to remain as they are and will fade away or even close the doors. Regrettably, some may even change their message and begin to preach a more humanistic, ungodly gospel. These will be used by the enemy as false prophets.
     But, for those who know their god, they will begin to see and to do great exploits. Great signs and wonders will be seen in churches and in the marketplace. Those who cling to God will be empowered to bring great power and witness into the church and into the marketplace. Many will see and desire entrance into the kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus! There will be a great harvest of the lost and of the prodigals. Many of those who came and l left will be reclaimed for the kingdom to the glory of Jesus! But there will be an even greater harvest of the lost. The fruit of evangelism will increase many times over as the Spirit moves through the earth. The saints of God will have an abundant opportunity to share the message of Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God.
     Discernment will be of great importance during this time. Many will come trying to stop the flow or to mislead. It will be necessary that we hear what the Spirit is saying so that deception will not enter. The Holy Spirit will read and will show each person the steps to take in order to avoid the traps of the enemy.

     There will be God-given opportunities for growth and increase. This is true for each person and for the church. As we seek His direction in all things, He will lead us to doors which He has opened. If we, in faith, move through these doors, then there will be increase of vision, people, finances, and all things. Our responsibility will be to see, to discern, and to move in faith. As we do, the outflow of blessings will be great for His kingdom and for the people of God.
     This time of the Lord is drawing ever near. We, as the church of Jesus Christ, must not become lackadaisical, but we must move into a higher level of faith, wisdom, and warfare. We cannot become or remain "at ease in Zion." We must strive to move higher in Him. We must resist the devil. We must war and overcome in order to bring glory to His name and to establish His kingdom in the earth!


                  Word of the Lord 2024

Prophet Iris A. Cole


     The Lord has said that this is a season to make definite decisions and difficult decisions. Difficult because they may "cost" you something in business, finances, relationships, or friendships. This is a season where boundaries have to be set, and there is no compromise. One must take a stand for righteousness!
     Now is the time for the gift of discernment to be fully operational with people and in situations the Lord said that things that appear harmless or innocent can turn out to be "sinister." Use discernment and wisdom.
     Isolation is not an option during this time Christians need the body of Christ to support each other and to stand together. The principles of "One can put a thousand to flight and two can put ten thousand to flight" is needed during this time. Childish and Petty things have to be put aside. 1 Corinthians 12:21 states, "The eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of thee..." Unity in the body and seeing and accepting others' gifts is extremely important.
     The Lord says, "Be on the alert."  "Let your 'yea' be 'yea' and your 'nay' be 'nay'." Don't take things lightly, but use wisdom and discernment. This is a season to be faithful and trustworthy. "I will uphold you and strengthen you," says the lord!
