This prophecy was given at the Elim Bible Institute USA, in 1965 by the late
Stanley Frodsham. Brother Frodsham was one of those who received his Baptism in the Holy Ghost at Sunderland in 1908 where
the Pentecostal movement in Britain had its beginnings. He was a recognized prophet and teacher in the Body of Christ whose
life and ministry spanned the Pentecostal Revival, the great Healing Revival and the early days of the Charismatic Movement.
He also authored the well-known book, "Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle of Faith". It is written: "Despise not prophesying.
Prove all things, hold fast that which is good" (I Thessalonians 5.-20,21). The following is a prophetic word given to
one who was under a heavy anointing. We believe all who read these solemn prophetic warnings should take diligent heed to
them. "Believe in the Lord your God, so ye shall be established,- believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper" (II
With great judgments 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 will 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 known My wrath, My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be lightly passed over. Realize the
severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house. For I
will cleanse My house that it be not 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 shall be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath coming upon all iniquity
I am going to prepare you for the coming days
by a hard path that will cause you 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 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 that which 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 you have need of. And when tribulation comes you will have that which will enable you to stand. For many
shall be tossed to and fro. Men's hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. For these days shall be very terrible,
the like of which has never been seen before.
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 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
many then received My message but they continued not in it. Did I not anoint Jehu? Yet the things I desired were not accomplished
in his life. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold men's persons in admiration. 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; 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 that shall turn many of My anointed ones away. Many shall fall through divers
lusts, and because of sin abounding. But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you. When one shall turn
to the right hand or to the left you shall not turn with them, but keep your eyes wholly on the Lord. The coming days are
the most dangerous, difficult and dark, but there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit upon many cities, and many shall
be destroyed. My people must be diligently warned concerning the days that are ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits;
many are already 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 shall anoint, that they may
purify and sift My people; for I would have a holy people.
come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements. You will find that after I have visited My people again, the
way shall become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk there in. But 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.
warn you to search the scriptures diligently 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 favor
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 these wrong doctrines. Therefore, I say that
you should not give your hearts to men, nor hold people's persons in admiration. For by these very persons shall Satan enter
into My people. WATCH FOR SEDUCERS. Do you think a seducer will brandish a new heresy and flaunt it before the people? He
will speak the 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
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 cannot discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly,
and then 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. Many will be deceived. But if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, 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; and if you will look constantly to Me I will uphold you.
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, and it 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.
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 power 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 I have experienced. As you are on the cross, and 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 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 you 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 that I walked upon the earth, but it was in My life when I was upon the cross that I
openly spoiled principalities and powers.
I am showing you truths
that shall cause you to overcome, to have power over the wicked one, truth that will liberate you and those round about you.
You shall know also the fellowship of My sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this heavenly glory
and reign with Me. "If we suffer with Him we shall reign with Him." I desire to make those truths real within you.
As you keep them before you, you will 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 they have not the keys. Upon the cross continually
you will know the power of My resurrection that you may also partake of My glory. As you are willing to walk with Me and rejoice
in your sufferings, you shall partake of My glory. Look unto Me for you have need of power to overcome the wicked one, and
the bondages in other lives.
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 shall know it. And the shame that shall be seen on many faces shall not be seen
on your face. Therefore in love and mercy I am instructing you. And therefore I have said that if a man 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 I am telling you. If you will not hearken unto Me thy shame shall be evident
I would have you consider My life on earth -- the anointing
upon Me was great and yet the temptations were great on every side; in one form and then in another, offering Me first the
glory of the kingdoms of the earth and then reviling and persecuting Me. There will be great glory given to My people, and
yet the temptations shall be intensified from every side. Think not that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions.
The glory of My church shall be great, and so shall be the temptations from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I am
warning you that when the glory shall be manifested, the temptations shall be great, until very few that start shall finish.
First there shall be offered them great worldly possessions, and then 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 everyone shall rise up against you, simply to turn you from the course that I would put you in. It is
written of Me that I set My face as a flint to go to the direction My Father had prescribed for Me. If you will finish the
course the Lord has laid down for you, you 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 shall persuade you and try to turn you
from the course. With many words that seem right in the natural will they 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 temptations 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 when the ungodly cried out, "If thou be the Christ come down from the cross." Think not that there shall be
a time of no persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing until the end. Difficulties, and great persecution
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.
For the Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp round about them.
And all who will be led of the Lord shall 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 shall be manifested through His people. Let the Lord lead
you and He will lead you in difficult places. He led His people of old through a place where no man dwelt, where no man had
passed through, in a place of great danger and in the shadow of death. The Lord will indeed again lead His people through
such places, and yet He 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 to 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.
your trust in Him and He will bring you into a place of holiness. He desires to bring His people into great glory -- the like
of which has never been seen for what the Lord will do for those who put their trust in Him. It is a place of darkness and
great danger that separates His people into the place He would have them walk in. He will protect them from the voices that
would turn them from His path. He will bring them through the dark places, and through the treacherous paths, out into the
light of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved and cause you 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 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 nor to 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 nor there, for the wells that once had water shall be no more. But as you diligently seek Him He shall
increase your strength and your faith, that He may be able to prepare you for this time that is 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 part of them.
I am showing you these things that you may be prepared, and having done all, to stand.
