The Year Of The Test – February 28, 2023


Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF DARKNESS OF THIS AGE, AGAINST SPIRITUAL HOSTS OF WICKEDNESS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. [Eph. 6:10- 13]

This is what the Lord said as I was in seeking Him in prayer on personal matters:

2023 will be a year that will test people, a year that will test people so greatly that some of them will give up and exit this life. This is a year where the separation of sheep and goats will be accelerated until there is a massive divide between them. You will be sheared as a sheep, you will also be tested to see if you are a real sheep. In addition you will no longer be able to tolerate your unsaved friends in many ways: what they say, what they do, what they enjoy and find funny- everything they do will become a stink in your nostrils like it is in Mine, and you will depart their company or perish with them. It is a year to try the soul. 

Back to the Starting Line

Listening to this put a pressure on my heart. I said Lord do not try me, please. His response was you have been tried and will continue to be tried, but My grace is sufficient for you. You will be among the ones who get to go forward to the next step. A lot of people are returning to baseline level, to where they started. They will not be allowed to progress further than they have come. They have not fortified the walls and roof of their lives and have too many weaknesses to go forward.

To allow them to go further would bring the imminent collapse of the structure of their lives. Any more promotion, any more pressure, any more exposure, any more stress [which in this case means pressure + busyness + physical weights of life] added to their foundation and the whole thing will collapse. These ones will be sent back to the former level (or in some cases, back to square one) to rebuild the walls and foundation of their lives, their choices and their level of faith for the coming season. The wind will blow the house down otherwise, if they are allowed to continue further.

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” – (Matthew 7:24- 27)

An All-Out Spiritual War 

The battle is about to become no holds barred. NO HOLDS BARRED. This means an increase in spiritual activity on all fronts- Good and Evil. An increase in wonderful acts of God in the lives of those who seek Him diligently, asking Him to reveal Himself & His grace to them, but an increase in attacks, spiritual wickedness and warfare to those outside his shelter. Even Christians will not be exempted from the devil’s acts of warfare and attack.

There will be NO HOLDS BARRED [in other words], pure raw fighting with no rules and nothing is off-limits for either side. Bear in mind, no act is too wicked for the devil. No unguarded portion of the house is so “sacred” it can’t be touched. It means the safety net is limited. It means you can lose your life if you are not carefully wrapped in the secret place of grace, and even if you are wrapped there, it may be the Lord’s will to let you find rest in death rather than continue on with the walk.

Areas that many are found wanting in, (yet the have the opportunity to develop strength in these areas), are FASTING & PRAYING. Prayer and fasting are essential to good spiritual health. If you do not fast and pray you cannot be fortified in the inner man, and without spiritual fortitude you will not manage to advance to the next level.

Some people who have performed well are rapidly approaching, at great speed, A NEW LEVEL, a mightier level than they have ever been to, but they will not get there without the engine of fasting and praying especially in the night hours. They must realize that STAGNANCY in the way they pray and approach the word of God has to be shaken off in favor of a more flexible schedule that is very surrendered and sensitive to the Holy Spirit. New levels will only be accessed by submitting to the leading of the Spirit as HE directs the human spirit how to move, grow and outwit the enemy.

Fasting is a way to humble yourself, in order for God to show mercy when enemies are attacking you, or even to rid your own soul of pride and other sins that cause you to stumble:

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. Psalm 35:13

Fasting allows your spirit to be sensitive enough for God to speak to you, to give guidance about next steps esp. when you are facing big or important decisions:

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” – Acts 13:2

Regular fasting allows a person to enter into deeper levels of communion with the Holy Spirit, where very powerful truths, revelations and spiritual responsibilities can be released.

Moses was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments. – Exodus 34:28

It is one of the greatest tools to help and deepen the process of REPENTANCE, because as the body is set aside the spirit can drag up all the dirt and lay it at Yah’s feet in sorrow for the past, asking His mercy for a renewed covenant in Christ. Fasting aids and deepens REPENTANCE.

“Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. – (Joel 2:12- 13)

And here is Daniel repenting in Babylonian captivity for the sins of the whole nation:

So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with Him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes

I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. –  (Daniel 9:3-5)

Fasting is an essential spiritual tool, purifier and weapon, likewise is prayer which is the means that we share communion with God, speaking to Him and inviting Him into our lives.

Let us therefore hear and properly understand the message of the Lord, that levels are changing in the spirit: warfare, promotion and demotion are still actively in play as prophesied several months ago. For more on that see this video HERE.Thank you for visiting The Master’s Voice.

  3. Edna Moore says:

    Thanks sister. You know I have been told to fast…the Lord didn’t say why…just said fast!!! Then the other day I had a dream. I was among colleagues and we were told we will have a test…one of the women said you will pass no need to study because it’s soo easy but I told her…nope I will study no matter I have clarity!

  4. Njibo says:

    This is going to be a very challenging year for all of us! It started with lots of things happening and we are just in March! As Celestial says, we need to all go deep in our relation with GOD. There is nothing else in the universe that will protect and guide us but only GOD!!! Let us pray and fast as much as we can! Thank you Celestial!!! God bless you!!!

  5. Wendy P says:

    Amen. Thank you, Celestial, God is good.

  6. The first three days of last month I fasted and prayed. And I decided to do so the first three days of EVERY month from now one (forever). Ones brain feels supercharged and praying becomes an intensely DEEP, meaningful experience.

    Peace & Blessings to you Sis. Celestial. I thank you so much for these instructions and the explanation the need for fasting.

  9. Jennu says:

    Thank you Sister Celestial, I keep saying that I’m going to fast.

  10. Debbie says:

    Thank you so much, Sister Celestial for all the work that you do especially for the instructions, warnings, prophecies and the truth that you shared. I have been blessed because you endured so much to get His word out for me to hear.

    Please pray for me to also have the endurance, courage and discipline to fast since I am not firm enough to follow through my fasting. My spirit is at war with my mind and body.

  11. Svilen says:

    Thank you Sister Celestial…. I have planned next week to fast 2-3 days and nights (no food, and no water), but for now on, I will do that every week…. Thanks, your brother in Truth….

  12. Svilen says:

    Thank you Sister Celestial…. Glory to our Lord and God….. Who was in heaven and on earth at the same time – John 3:13…. On earth in body of flesh THE SON, and in Heaven in his GLORIFIED BODY = THE FATHER…. That was the only way for sinners to see God and live…. That’s why He made this World, and the World know him not – John 1:10 KJV…

  13. Ann says:

    I pray and follow your blog can I ask about the 2 more good years videos which would have brought us to 2024?. Who does all this apply to ? I take things seriously and listen carefully, but I don’t understand the past message of 2 more years and then this message that this is it for many …..Is there a good 2 more years? Do you know how this fits in? How do we apply these messages to our lives? Should I just pray and not plan, but take every minute as my last? Hard times trying to digest info and not knowing where things fit. Why was there a video of 2 more good years, wouldn’t it be better to not do such a video because it is confusing. Please what does it all mean? Has the timeline changed so now it is this is it this year 2023. Any advice guidance. I’ll take it to the Lord in evening prayers hoping for an answer for me. Thanks. This blog post is sad very sad.

    1. D4christ says:

      @ann when I read your comment what came to mind is that as time moves and we approach the end of the the 2 more good years, it doesn’t mean that it will get easier. So basically the closer we get to the end of the 2 years we are going to be tried and seeking the lord MORE IS required. I believe that we should use these 2 good more years to establish a stronger/disciplined prayer and fasting life so the lord can give us revelation and guide us into what we need to be doing.

  14. H says:

    Fasting produces steadfastness. Clear, purposeful abandonment of feeding the body makes one’s inner man stronger.

    Celestial is correct — we receive messages we need to grow strong In Him. For example, when fasting I heard, “Do not feed the one, and neglect the other.” Meaning for me, to up my game tending to my Spiritual feeding, and that I needed to feed my Spirit just as much as my body. I easily hear the cry of my flesh, “Feed me! That looks so good!”. And just as easily, I am able to tune out the Still Small Voice — forgive me, Yah!

  15. I have struggled with the discipline of fasting and prayer. Since finding The Masters Voice last year I have found a deeper fear of the Lord, and have been helped. There truly has been a change, and I am grateful for the Spirit’s guidance. Thank you.

    🎯 praise Yah for this message and thank you sister for delivering. This struck me right thru the heart. Yah have mercy on me. 🙏🏽

  17. Temwa Mbale says:

    This is inspiring and empowering

  18. Carla says:

    Celestial everything you say is true. The Lord is testing me and showing me my heart. I have been unable to sleep due to sleep disturbances with my heart racing . Even went to the ER last night. Been praying some spiritual warfare prayers and repenting since i thought i was doing good in my walk. I was wrong. I pray I can get back on track. Thank you so much and if yall can say a prayer for me. Brothers and sisters Please listen to what she is saying , the Lord is not playing.

    1. Mary Leah says:

      This seems to be a trend! Five visit to doctor including ER. I can tell you this now, the doctors and medical system are failing and are really not prepared for anything beyond cold, flu, pneumonia, strep, even Covid. It has been frightening how inadequate the care and knowledge has been.

      1. Svilen says:

        Mary Leah, are the doctors and medical system failing?… If they already destroyed many people with DNA vaccines (for extra money), so they will continue failing in this days of (inflation)…!

  19. Larithza Medina says:

    Praise the Lord because in his mercy and love for us, he continues to sending messages through his servant Celestial and warning for the seasons ahead.
    PLEASE DON’T TAKE THIS MESSAGE LIGHTLY… endurance will be required! Fasting and prayer are absolutely necessary! You can’t say “I’m strong enough” because the trials will be stronger than you think or expect.
    I want to share a dream that I received just this morning, (March 4th/2023). I was in a University building, I saw a woman that was looking for the classroom #218 and she was asking to other students. This classroom was located in the second floor of the building (#218) and from there the view was beautiful, There was a beautiful scenery: a pond and trees. I noticed that the water in the pond was frozen (just as we see during winter) and I thought that in spring the pond would be amazing.
    But I was really surprised that a lot of students can’t make it because there was a big group in the high school but just 4 went to the university.
    You expect that after the high school a good percentage continue to the university but not in this case.
    I pray to the Lord to be a sheep 🐑 no matter the cost, I want to follow his directions even if everything and everyone else from my life is go away.

  20. Jenny says:

    I have finally fasted like I should do. I will definately keep praying and fasting, not only just praying. I don’t want to be a lukewarm christian. Thank you Lord and thank you for sister Celestial.

  21. Tricia says:

    I wonder what this means for targeted individuals. I am so weary, I don’t even know what to do enough.

    1. Gene says:

      It could mean that more of us will begin to go through what you already have been. It may also mean that your battle will start being less intense as well. Peace and grace be multiplied for you.

  22. Esther Joseph says:

    Praise the LORD! Sister Celestial thank you so much for delivering the message of the LORD to us. I believe everything you said sister yes fasting and praying are good tools to enter in a deep relation to GOD. I want to do so, please my beloved sister help in your prayers. May GOD bless you.

  23. Every Knee Shall Bow says:

    I pray this blesses someone today. We are building a little studio/apartment to welcome people we don’t know yet. The Lord will bring them so we can host them in a future time. So we got several quotes from contractors. All asking ridiculous amounts of money. Workers for these small projects are very scarce around here. In addition they did not ‘recommend’ building with the safer/better materials we wanted and were actually just selling esthetics. A faster/easier work for them that looks really good and usually pleases the eyes of the customer. Not what we wanted. So, with the Lord really pressing on us we should get things going, I asked my husband (whose back hurts with every step he takes and is not getting any younger) if this was a project he thought he could undertake. Because I saw him doing it better than anyone and also capable of it. He has never built a concrete wall before. Out teen boys could help too. I felt he just needed that reassurance… then he said, ok. So he studied the method on how to get what he wanted and began working on it. The day after that wall dried out and was finished we just stared at it. It was a beautiful wall. I asked: is it sturdy enough? He said: I did all I could to make it sturdy, but “we’ll see”. After experiencing severe hurricanes and earthquakes where we live, we both knew what that meant. We won’t know until we know. Then he raised both fists to the air and with a huge smile yelled: “I’m a man!” and kept working.

    Bretheren. Only testing will prove the quality of our walls. How much praying and fasting we need will be directed by the Holy Spirit and we’ll definitely “see” how effective the strength of our inner walls were when the time comes. Let’s NOT rest on others building our walls even if what they offer “looks” nice on the outside. Sometimes we look for what works for others or seems to have worked for them. Do you want to know how many mansions we saw blown away by hurricane Maria, 5 years ago and how SOME little wooden houses stood up just because they were build the RIGHT way? Also, what are you saving your strength, time, resources for? The time is NOW. Work with whatever strength yo have. God will multiply.

    I also pray: Oh Lord no… please, no more testing!!! Then I know that’s just out of the question. So I pray, Lord please guide us. Show us how to build our walls so when the time comes we stand in YOU. God bless your church. WE LOVE YOU LORD. Make us strong in YOU and accomplish your will in us. Amen.

    1. Tracey says:

      Sister, let me be the first one to say this blessed me tremendously. Every level of detail, encouragement and teaching was so precious. May the Lord bless you & help your family to stand for Him no matter when & what comes. May your walls stand no matter what rains come and what winds blow in the mighty and never failing name of the living Lord Jesus Christ. Amennn!!!!
