(NOTE: This prophetic word was spoken by Stanley Frodsham
who was a personal friend of Smith Wigglesworth. It was given in
Chicago in 1965 five years before he died.)
"With great judgements will I plead with the population of this
country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have
heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come
upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so
sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There
shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.
My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall
come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not
experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgements are literal
and not a thing to be passed over lightly. Realise the severity of
My judgements and My intense anger against the sin in My
Household. My judgements shall begin in My House, for I will
cleanse My House that it be not a partaker of My wrath against
the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgement I
will begin at My House. When I do cause My wrath to come upon
the cities of the world My people shall be separate. I desire a
people without spot or wrinkle and such will be preserved by Me in
the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and
I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that
will cause many to cry out continually unto Me. For when the
going is easy men do not seek Me, but rejoice in a temporary
blessing. And when that blessing is removed they so often turn
this way and that way but do not come to Me. I am showing you
these things in order that you may seek Me continually and with
great diligence. As you seek Me I will open up truths to you that
you have not seen before, and these very truths will be such that
will enable you to stand in these last days. As you are persecuted,
reviled and rejected by your brethren then you will turn unto Me
with all your heart and seek Me for that spiritual life that you need.
So that when the tribulation comes you will have that which will
enable you to stand. For many will be tossed to and fro, men's
hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. These
days shall be very terrible the likes of which have never been seen before.
Coming Glory - and - Deceiving Spirits
When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare
them for the darkness ahead. With the Glory shall come great
darkness, for the Glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I
will enable My people to go through the darkness because of the
visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest you be puffed
up and think that you have arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in
the olden days, for then, many received My message but they did
not continue in it. Did I anoint Jehu? Yet the things that I desired
were not accomplished in his life. Listen to the messengers, but
do not hold men's persons in admiration or adulation. For many
whom I shall anoint mightily with signs and miracles shall become
lifted up and shall fall by the wayside. I do not this willingly for I
have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this
ministry and equip them, but remember that many shall fall. They
shall be like bright lights and the people shall delight in them. But
they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many
of My people astray. Hearken diligently concerning these things,
for in the last days shall come seducing spirits. They shall turn
many of My anointed ones away, many shall fall through diverse
lusts and because of 'sin abounding'.
But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you so
that when one shall turn to the right hand or to the left hand you
shall not turn with them, but instead you will keep your eyes fixed
wholly on your Lord. The coming days are going to be most
dangerous, difficult and dark for there shall be a mighty outpouring
of My Spirit in judgement upon many cities and many shall be
destroyed. My people must be diligently warned concerning the
days ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits and already
many are seducing My people. It is those who 'Do Righteousness'
that are righteous. Many cover their sins by great theological
words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct my people
in an evil way. Many of these I will anoint that they in turn may
purify and sift My people, for I will have a holy people. When I
come I shall not find faith upon the earth but in a few, for when
the time of testing comes many will depart from their Lord.
Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful
enticements. You will find that after I have visited My people again
the way will become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk
therein. Be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways.
For though Satan come as an angel of light hearken not to him;
for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are
not of Me. I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge
My House and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come.
I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding,
that you may not be deceived but may walk with uprightness of
heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way.
Look unto Me and I will make you to perceive with the eyes of the
Spirit the things that lurk in darkness, that are not visible to the
human eye. Let Me lead you in this way, that you may perceive
the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle
against flesh and blood, for if you battle in that way you accomplish
nothing. But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers
of darkness then they are defeated, and then liberation is brought
to My people.
The Ways of Deceivers
I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these
last days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made
manifest. There shall come deceivers among My people in
increasing numbers, who shall speak forth the truth and shall gain
the favour of the people. For the people shall examine the
Scriptures and say, 'What these men say is true'. Then when they
have gained the hearts of the people, then and then only shall they
bring out their wrong doctrines. Therefore I say that you should
not give your hearts to men, nor hold people's persons in
admiration or adulation. For by these very persons Satan shall
gain entry into My people. Watch for seducers! Do you think a
seducer will brandish a heresy and flaunt it before the people? He
will speak words of righteousness and truth and will appear as a
minister of light, declaring the Word. The people's hearts shall be
won. Then when the hearts are won, they will bring out their
doctrines and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say
'Did he not speak thus and thus'? 'And did we not examine it from
the Word'? 'Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. This that
he has now spoken we do not see in the Word but it must be right,
for the other things he spoke were true'.
Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts
of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You can
not discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me
when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and when
these doctrines are brought out you shall have a witness in your
heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. It
is possible that the very elect may be deceived. But it is not
possible if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord,
for then your eyes shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If
you will constantly look unto the Lord you will know when the
doctrine changes, and will not be brought into it. If your heart is
right I will keep you, if you will look constantly to Me, I will
The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise --- his life shall
agree with the word, and his lips shall give forth that which is
wholly true, there will be no mixture. When the mixture appears
then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The
deceivers speak first the truth and then error, to cover their own
sins which they love. Therefore I exhort and command you to
study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of
the great dangers of these last days.
I desire you to be firmly established in My word and not in the
personalities of men, that you will not be moved as so many shall
be moved. I would keep you in the paths of righteousness. Take
heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are
already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you
hear something that you have not seen in the word, and do not
hold people's persons in admiration, for it is by this very method
that Satan will hold many of My people.
The Way of Triumph
I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly,
that you may triumph where I triumphed. On the cross I triumphed
over all the powers of Satan and I have called you to walk in the
same path. It is when your life is on the cross that you shall know
the victory that I have experienced. As you are on the cross,
seated in Me, then you shall know the power of the resurrection.
When I come in My Glory the principalities and powers in the
heavenly places shall be utterly broken. Fear not, for I have given
you the power whereby you may tread down the powers of
darkness, and come forth victorious through every trial. As you are
on the cross then you are victorious. It was on the cross that I
triumphed over all the powers of the enemy. My life shall flow
through as you enter into these precious truths. Look unto Me
and appropriate My life. As your eyes and desires are toward Me
and you know what it is to be crucified with Me, then you shall
live and your anointing shall increase. It was not in My life as I
walked upon the earth but rather it was in My life as I hung upon
the cross that I openly spoiled principalities and powers.
I am showing you truth that shall cause you to overcome, to have
power over the wicked one, this is the truth that will liberate you
and those around you. You shall know also the fellowship of My
sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this
heavenly glory and to reign with Me. My word says that If we
suffer with Him we shall reign with Him. I desire to make these
truths real within you. As you keep them before you, you will in
turn liberate many who are in bondage. You will have revelation of
those who are in darkness and will have the keys to liberate the
captives. Many seek to liberate but do not have the keys. Upon
the cross continually you will know the power of My resurrection.
If you will indeed judge yourself you shall not be judged. As you
seek My face and desire to be cleansed by Me in all truth and
sincerity of heart, I will judge you in the secret place, and the
things that are in the secret place of your heart shall not be made
manifest to others. I will do it in the secret place and no man will
know it. The shame that will be seen on many faces shall not be
seen on your face. Therefore in mercy and love I am instructing
you in order that you may partake of My Glory. As you are willing
to walk with Me and rejoice in your sufferings, you shall in turn
partake of My Glory. Look unto Me for you have need of power to
overcome the wicked one and the bondages in other's lives.
I said that if a man will judge himself he shall not be judged. It is
not My good pleasure that the shame of My people be seen by all.
How can I judge the world if I judge not first My own house?
Hearken unto these things that I am telling you, for if you will not
hearken unto Me thy shame shall be evident to all.
God's Part and Our Part
I would have you consider My life on earth --- the anointing upon
Me was great and yet the temptations were great on every side;
they came in one form and then in another, offering Me first the
glory of the kingdoms of the earth and then in the form of reviling
and persecution. There will be great glory given to My people but
also the temptations will be intensified on every side. Think not
that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions.
The glory to My church shall be great and so also the temptations
from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I warn you
again that when the glory shall be manifested the temptations
shall be great until very few that started shall finish the course.
First of all they shall be offered great worldly possessions and
then will come great revilings and unbelief.
Consider your Lord, that as He walked so it shall be for you. There
shall be need of great intensity of purpose. At times it will seem
that everyone is rising up against you, trying to turn you from the
course that I have set for you. It is written of Me that I set my face
as flint to go in the direction that My Father had prescribed for Me.
If you will finish the course the Lord has laid down for you, you too
will have to set your face as a flint. With great determination you
must walk in the course laid down for you. Many of your loved
ones and those who follow with you will seek to persuade you and
try to turn you from the course. With many words that seem right
in the natural they will speak to you. Did not Christ rebuke Peter
who would turn Him from the course God had prescribed?
Understand these two things and meditate upon them solemnly ---
the persecution and the darkness shall be as great as the glory in
order to try to turn the elect and the anointed ones from the path
the Lord has laid down for them. Many shall start but few shall be
able to finish because of the greatness of grace that shall be
needed to be able to endure unto the end. The temptation and the
persecution of your Lord was continuous. He was tempted by
Satan in many forms throughout His entire life and even to the
cross where the ungodly cried out 'if thou be the Christ come
down from the cross'. Think not that there will be a time of no
persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing until the
end. Difficulties and great persecution will go on to the end. The
Lord must prepare you to be an overcomer in all things, that you
may be able to finish the course. The persecution shall increase
even as the anointing shall increase.
In paths of judgement and righteousness shall the Lord God lead
His people and bring them into that place which He has chosen
for them. The Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of
righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp around them.
All who will be led of the Lord will be brought into this holy place.
For the Lord delights to dwell in His people and to manifest
Himself through His people. The holiness of the Lord will be
manifested through His people. Let the Lord lead you and He will
lead you in the difficult places. He led His people of old through a
place where no man dwelt, where no man passed through, in a
place of great danger and in the shadow of death. The Lord will
indeed lead His people again through such places, and at the
same time will bring them out into a place of great glory.
Understand that the way toward the glory is fraught with great
danger and many shall fall to the right or the left, many shall camp
on lesser ground. But the Lord has a place of holiness and no
unclean thing shall dwell among His people.
Put your trust in Him and He will bring you into a place of holiness.
He desires to bring His people into a great glory --- the likes of
which has never been seen, for this is what the Lord will do for
those who put their trust in Him. It is a place of darkness and
great danger and it will separate His people into the place where
He would have them walk. He will protect them from the voices
that would turn them from His path. He will bring them through the
dark places and treacherous paths and lead them out into the light
of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved and cause
them to be filled with joy unspeakable. He seeks to lead His
people into a new place of grace and glory where He will indeed
encamp among them. Put your trust in Him and He will surely
bring you into this new place.
Fear not the days to come, but fear this only --- that you shall
walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. In this time I am ordering
and setting up My church and it shall indeed be pure, without spot
or wrinkle. I will do a work in My beloved that has not been seen
since the foundation of the world. I have shown you these things
that you may seek the Lord diligently with all your heart, and that
you may be a preserver of His people.
Run not to this one or that one for the Lord has so ordained that
salvation is in Him and in Him alone. You shall not turn to this
shepherd or to that one, for there shall be a great scattering upon
the earth. Therefore look unto Him for He will indeed make these
things clear to you. You shall not look here or there, for His Wells
shall increase your strength and your faith as He prepares you for
the times that are coming.
The truths that I have revealed to you must become a part of you ---
not just an experience, but a part of your very nature. Is it not
written that I demand truth in the inward parts? It is the truth of the
Lord expressed in your very being that shall hold you. Many shall
experience the truth but the truth must become a part of you, your
very life. As men and women look upon you they will hear not only
the voice but see the expression of the truth. Many shall be
overcome because they are not constant in My ways and because
they have not permitted the truths to become a part of them. I am
showing you these things that you may be prepared, and having
done all, to stand. "
