You may already be familiar with the following prophecy:
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 4:1–3)
Consider the lilies and how they grow:
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: (Matthew 6:28)
How our enemies will be ashes under our feet has long been a topic of discussion. The statement by Jesus in Matthew 6:28 has relevance to it—it will come to pass—we need not bother ourselves with how, when, or why. It’s happening right now before our very eyes at marches for President Trump. In droves, the righteous have gone forth to confront the haters and the intolerant, and they don’t know what propels them other than they feel compelled to do so.
The compelling force to do this comes from the Spirit inside them. It has been quickening as the dews of Heaven have been dropping from the River of Life that flows out from God’s throne. All of this has been prophesied and is documented in Cut Short In Righteousness: How The Sign Of Jesus’ Coming Will Change The World, Before He Comes: Three Little Known Prophecies, and Army of the Lord – United States and the website cutshort.org.
The spirit they feel inside is driving them out of their homes and out of their comfort zones to rejoice or confront the opposing force:

We get a glimpse of what the contemporary fulfillment of this prophecy looks like—it begins with conflicting views of reality. In short, there’s a difference between having opinions and positions that differ and a skewed view of reality. It is our right to see reality from our P.O.V., but it is not our right to present a false or distorted view of reality. An example is the conscience. Do we have a conscience?
People may dispute the existence of their conscience and cite theories for or against it but if they are not based in real truth then sooner or later man-made ontological belief systems will crumble and fall. This is where we are now; as God’s Spirit and presence descend into our hearts, the fabric of our beliefs will either be strengthened or weakened. False realities will fray and then break.
The task for the Lord’s Army is to facilitate the untangling of thought (1) and disintegration of false belief systems (2); the unmasking of the conscience (3). Jesus described this like putting “new wine” into “old bottles,” the old bottles would not be able to contain the new wine which would cause them to “break”:
17 Neither do men put new wine [truth] into old bottles [false views of reality, a masking of the conscience]: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine [truth] into new bottles [true view of reality, unmasking of the conscience], and both are preserved. (Matthew 9:17)
Upon death, we face the reality that there is a God, our conscience is real, and we have a life review. At that time there comes a realization that you have either fought against truth by forming fictional views of self and reality or, you did not compromise your conscience and did not create fictional views of self or reality. If a person’s “house of cards” falls apart at that time—it is too late—most throw themselves “headlong down into hell” from whence they can never escape; they are literally “damned (i.e. stuck) to hell.”
Our task is to give them a “reality check” before they die, so there is still time to untangle, deal with, and restore their innocence that was lost. We must be born again (John 3:3) and become as little children (Matthew 18:3). Many generations have become entangled (and possibly lost) by the lies the media, Hollywood, corrupt education system, and un-Biblical churches have put into them.
It’s like so much “bad wine” went into their bottles or souls (a soul is made-up of a heart and mind) that it corrupted them. Now the truth “HURTS” them; they have grown so far apart from who they truly are (i.e. a “child of God,” Hebrews 12:9), they should have hope and vision, respect for life, and a feeling of belonging; a stewardship. We must know God’s Word so we can convey truth and restore each lost person to the reality of who they are.
We are all connected; each lost soul is harmful to the whole family (Ephesians 3:15). Our stewardship is to each other, to God, and to the human family at large. God responds to our righteousness and our prayers. As more of God’s presence comes to earth, people are responding by giving thanks, praying more often, and reaching out to others. This behavior is a productive variant of the “mob mentality.”
Humans respond to humans, and it’s possible for a whole generation to build enough momentum in restoring wholeness that it would be impossible for fractures to exist—that’s what Heaven IS. We can bring a Heaven environment to earth and have even been commanded to PRAY FOR IT DAILY:
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
As in Heaven.
(Our Lord’s Prayer to God the Father – Matthew 6:9-13)
From The Most Holy & Sacred Book of Mormon we learn that the power is in our hands to usher in The Millennium of Peace:
2 And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually. (Mosiah 5:2)
12 Now they, after being sanctified by the Holy Ghost, having their garments made white, being pure and spotless before God, could not look upon sin save it were with abhorrence; and there were many, exceedingly great many, who were made pure and entered into the rest of the Lord their God. (Alma 13:12)
33 And it came to pass that when Ammon arose he also administered unto them, and also did all the servants of Lamoni; and they did all declare unto the people the selfsame thing—that their hearts had been changed; that they had no more desire to do evil. (Alma 19:33)
26 Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to write these things that evil may be done away, and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, that they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved. (Ether 8:26)
18 Wherefore, all things which have been revealed unto the children of men shall at that day be revealed and Satan shall have power over the hearts of the children of men no more (2 Nephi 30:18)
We see how powerful the promises of God are and that the onus is on us to bring about The Millennium of Peace; no Antichrist need ever come! So how will our enemies be like ashes under our feet? The more the power of God comes to earth, the more the righteous become empowered by it, the stronger their words and actions will grow because they are working with reality, not against it. Those working with false realities will continue to become weaker and weaker, and the faithful will feel obligated to “burst their bubbles” and gently lead them to solid ground by speaking truth in love (or power) and detangling their webs of deceit with facts (i.e. secrets will be shouted from the rooftops).
This process will become the biggest season of conversion the world has ever known! Souls are won, one at a time; it will be a process. This is the type of warfare we can expect. Believers become demon slayers by using the Word of God, common sense, and facts. They must come spiritually prepared to these engagements as well. How to do that is detailed in the book Army of the Lord (see the bookstore).
