Please note: at the end of this article, by David Wilkerson, there is a powerful word given to Paul Beasley, from our Lord.

THE LORD HAD A MAN

by David Wilkerson

It was a difficult time in Israel as depravity, apostasy and back-
sliding were rampant in the land. At this time, the ark was gone
from Israel. Eli, the nation´s high priest, was lazy and complacent,
allowing his sons to debauch the priesthood. Under their leadership,
adultery and fornication were rampant in the temple. But Eli had
become so used to his life of ease that he would not do anything
to stop them.

At one point the Lord wrote the word “Ichabod” (meaning “the Spirit
of the Lord has departed”) over the whole religious system. Once
again, satanic forces had risen to great power and to the natural
eye, God´s work had lost so much ground, the odds of recovery
seemed improbable.

But the Lord had a man in place all along-a little child named
Samuel. While all the ministers around him were indulging in
fornication and gluttony, Samuel was learning to hear God’s voice.
As he became more and more intimate with the Lord, the Holy
Spirit filled him with a prophetic word. He became a testimony-
living proof of the power of God!

Scripture says that as Samuel grew, none of his words fell to the
ground, meaning that he consistently spoke with power and
authority. Because of his godly authority, no nation was able to
lift a hand against Israel for over forty years.

“And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none
of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba
knew that Samuel was established (found to be trustworthy) to be
a prophet of the Lord. And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for
the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the
Lord” (1 Samuel 3:19-21).

Once again, the Lord raised up a single man as a testimony to
a whole nation. God needed no army, no human organization, no
“new thing.” All he needed was one righteous man-someone
whose ministry was committed totally to His holy ways!

Word From The Lord, Given To Paul Beasley 12-11-2013

Thus says the Lord God almighty, “You want to run your
ministry like a business instead of having Me at the head,
then you will reap what you have sown along with the rest of
those whose focus is on this world, instead of on Me. You
say that I am your Lord and your King, yet you chase after
your own selfish ambitions. This was never My intention for
My church. I greatly desire to have a relationship with You,
but you push Me away in order to keep your own vain
traditions, teaching fables and lies. Whoa to you, you
hypocrite. You say you come in My name, but you do not even
know who I AM. You will be like the stiff necked Israelites,
wandering in the desert because they refused Me, and put
their king, Moses, between Me and them. Like them you prefer
the darkness over the light. Oh how I desire to be your
Father, yet you would prefer to be orphans than submit to My will.
