1 Peter 5:7-9 “Casting the [a]whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, [b]once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you [c]watchfully. 8Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 9Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset--rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.”
In the morning hours just before the dawn as I was awakening the Lord gave me a vision. I could see what seemed to be the form of a man lurking behind my house. The man looked all about fervently but, when he could not find what he had been lurking in the darkness and in hiding to find he seemed to abandon his search of that place and went on to seek out another. Before I could even process the vision I heard the Lord say, Your enemy will look for you but you will not be found by him. Your enemy will seek you out in the old and familiar places but you will not be there. You have been pressing and now you can tangibly see that you have advanced. You have been promoted into another realm of existence because you have stood and withstood in the face of your enemy. This is the place called “hid in Christ”. This is the place of your new life; this is the place where your will rule, reign and prosper in all things I have given you to do. I say to you again your enemy will look for you but in this season I have granted a reprieve and you will be hid from him. Be vigilant always because He will not cease in his pursuit of you as he is a relentless foe who knows his time is short. So gather your strength and compose yourself, and build yourself up in the faith. I say to you in this supernatural reprieve move swiftly, build up and not tear down, advance with all due diligence knowing that I am with you to undergird you and to protect you. I hide you in the shadow of My wing so that you would grow in confidence and strength that I am the God who protects, and who wars on your behalf. I Am the Rock who hides you so that the sun does not smite thee by day nor the moon by night. Your enemy will look for you in all the old familiar places but I have lifted you up and out and hidden you in Me.
Colossians 3:2-4 “Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Yes, exactly,... I'm being shown the very same thing; the enemy(and those who he has been working against us through)are being 'cut off' now.--- And as the Lord has been saying for some time now concerning the coming judgments of the last days; "You can not hide in the hiding places of the earth... You can only hide in the open, in Me".--- He is truly hiding His remnant to protect and provide for us in the coming days, for His works and His glory.--- And says the Lord;... "You will walk about the land where I send you, and will see the enemy flee before you,... a thousand to your right, and ten thousand to your left, all behind will have fallen, and those ahead of you will shake and tremble".
