Keep Thy Soul Diligently

Persecution in the Last Days

Gabby Dibble - 6/21/22 (David’s notes in red)
I had a quick dream of some of the things that will take place during the Tribulation. I was standing outside and the surroundings looked terrifying. (Fears come to pass, they are faith in reverse.) Then, I saw a flash vision of about four or five different ways that believers were being martyred. I couldn’t completely picture what I was seeing, but it was quite intense. 
When the vision in the dream ended, I began mentally trying to prepare myself for physical persecution. (This looked much worse than what many believers expect.) I was sneaking around the outdoors and, as I was doing this, I remember this saying that kept coming to me throughout the dream, “The only thing that will get us through this is praising the Lord and rejoicing in the hope of glory.” (This is faith) Jesus alone is the only one that will endure through His people. (Our faith in the promises will always work. Many will be going into tribulation that don't know this and may only enter the Kingdom through martyrdom.  
Luk 21:36  But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.  Luk 1:69-74 And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of his servant David 70 (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from of old), 71 Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us72 To show mercy towards our fathers, And to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father, 74 To grant unto us that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies Should serve him without fear,)
I then saw creatures descending from the sky. The scene changed and I was at my parents house looking at some kind of incubation structure that was heating something up(The parent's home represents the Harlot Church that we are called to come out of to escape for the beast will destroy her. They are working together to heat things up for Christians. i.e. persecution. 
Rev. 17:1-6 Come hither, I will show thee the judgment of the great harlot that sitteth upon many waters; 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and they that dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her fornication. 3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. ...and upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. ...16 And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire. Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people, out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues  
It was 3:00am when I woke up in the dream and my sister was telling me, “You can go back to sleep.” (The Apostate Church is currently asleep and some may not wake up in time to escape.) I was hesitant because I was suspicious of her activityThen I woke up in real life.

Every Knee Shall Bow 

Samuel Fire - 11/27/22 (David’s notes in red)

I saw the world from a zoomed-out perspective. I could see everyone whom the Lord was manifesting Himself through. 

Then I saw how people in the world were trying to force God’s Elect to bow before these large statues. These statues were very tall and made from various materials, such as gold, silver, bronze, iron, and clay. (A symbol of worshipping the image of the Beast as in Dan 3.)

None of the Elect gave in to the pressure [to bow down] and they stood boldly in their faith. (Like the 3 Hebrews who escaped through faith.) Suddenly, the statues broke at their bases where the feet were and fell forward and smashed into pieces. (This destruction of the image at the feet is clearly Dan 2:31-35 Thou, O king, sawest, and, behold, a great image. This image, which was mighty, and whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the aspect thereof was terrible. 32 As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass, 33 its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay. 34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands [Jesus in the Man-child body], which smote the image upon its feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together 

I prayed about the vision, and saw a connection to two places in the Word. The first was when the Ark of God was held by the Philistines and the statue of Dagon fell. 

1Sa 5:4  And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of Jehovah; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands lay cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.  

And secondly, the statue of Beast in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and later on that which was built for worship which the stone out of the Mountain of God’s Kingdom destroyed.  

I was then reminded about Jesus being the cornerstone, and a stumbling block for those who are offended.

Mat 21:42-44  Jesus saith to them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made head of the corner; This was from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes? (He became the head and destroyed the image of the Beast. ...44 And who falleth on this stone shall be broken to pieces: but on whomever it shall fall, it will scatter him as dust.  

Keep Thy Soul Diligently

Matt Ezell - 12/23/22 (David’s notes in red)

The Lord has been speaking to me about diligence lately and it just so happened that when I looked down at my Bible, a rainbow light of God’s wisdom was shining down by this verse…

Deu. 4:9  Only take heed to thy self, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life; but teach them to thy sons, and thy son’s sons.

Vanessa commented that, “The light is a rainbow which means a promise. It reminds me of Deu. 28:1-2  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Jehovah thy God, to observe to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that Jehovah thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth(I.e. Obey and escape the Beast.) 2 and all these blessings shall come upon thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Jehovah thy God. Thank you Father for reminding us of this and helping us to be diligent. [in our faith.]

Deb Horton said, “There are two different Hebrew words which are both translated, “diligently.” One means, “to the best of your ability” but the other one means, “to seek more light”. Is that not amazing?!

No Matter the Cost

Glenda Lomax - Wings of Prophesy - 11/26/22 (David’s notes in red)

(This is a warning about the coming tribulation trial of the Church.) 

“My children, in this time you are entering, the enemy will prevail over you for a season. It will not be pleasant. Know that it is the ultimate test for your faith and the rewards are very, very great for My children who endure through this for any length of time.

The enemy seeks  to make you deny your faith in Me, and to go along with the wicked who will rule. In this time, they will take first one thing and then another from you until you have nothing left except yourselves and your faith in MeThey will try to make you give that up, too.

(Judas was given over to satan because of theft and greed and he lost faith in the Lord. Peter denied he knew the Lord because of a fear of man but he did not give up his faith in Him according to Jesus. Luk 22:31  Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you as wheat: 32  but I made supplication for thee, that thy faith fail not; and do thou, when once thou hast turned again, establish thy brethren. 33  And he said unto him, Lord, with thee I am ready to go both to prison and to death. 34  And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, until thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.)

Hold on to your faith and do not deny Me no matter the cost, for there is no going back from this. (We are justified or accounted righteous by faith. Without this you loose your salvation. These will take the mark.) There is no repentance for denying Me. If you deny Me, that is your final answer, no matter how much longer you live and you will not spend eternity with Me, but being tormented by your enemy, though you seek Me with tears afterwards.

Set your face like flint now to endure for your salvation depends on it. This will not be easy as they will take everything from you; trying to make you give up your salvation. They will persecute you night and day. They will do violence against you and kill many of you. Do not fear this but rejoice for GREAT is your reward when you die in this way. 

Set your hearts to endure and do not deny Me no matter what you see, no matter the cost, no matter what they take from you or deny you access to. If you deny Me you lose your salvation.” (A martyrs death is preferred over denying the Lord with our works or in our hearts.) Psa. 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works; There is none that doeth good.

Mat. 10:16-23  Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and in theirs synagogues they will scourge you; 18 yea and before governors and kings shall ye be brought for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you. 

21 And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and the father his child: and children shall rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved. 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

Mat. 10:32-33 Every one therefore who shall confess me (meaning; to speak the same as) men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. (This could cost us our physical life but not necessarily our spiritual eternal life. For example: We could deny our healing by foolish confession but this is not reprobation.)

Eph. 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Rev. 13:11-18  And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like unto lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (Those claiming to be Christian but speak for the flesh.) 12 And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed. 13 And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men. 

14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived. 15 And it was given unto him to give breath to it, even to the image to the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 

16 And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; 17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six.

Rev. 14:9-13 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his forehead, or upon his hand, 10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 

11 and the smoke of their torment goeth up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, they that worship the beast and his image, and whoso receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints, they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 13 And I heard the voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them.

All in Whom the Son Lives are Hated

David Eells

Jesus is coming again in His people but will He be loved and respected, or rejected and hated by most of His people as in history? These people will hate us too.

Luk 1:67-75 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; For he hath visited and wrought redemption for his people, 69 And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of his servant David 70 (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from of old), 71 Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us

72 To show mercy towards our fathers, And to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father, 74 To grant unto us that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies Should serve him without fear, 75 In holiness and righteousness before him all our days.

Luk 2:8-18 And there were shepherds (poimen - Pastors) in the same country abiding in the field, and keeping watch by night over their flock. 9 And an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: 11 for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. (The angels declared to us that we are about to see the coming of the Man-child in whom Jesus lives.)

12 And this is the sign unto you: Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased(There is no peace to the wicked, saith the Lord) 15 And it came to pass, when the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing that is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. 

16 And they came with haste, and found both Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known concerning the saying which was spoken to them about this child. 18 And all that heard it wondered at the things which were spoken unto them by the shepherds.

Luk 2:27-34 And he (Simeon) came in the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, that they might do concerning him after the custom of the law, 28 then he received him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Now lettest thou thy servant depart, Lord, According to thy word, in peace; 

30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation(Jesus)  31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples;  (Like Jesus and Jesus in the Man-child Reformers. Mordecai raised up the Bride long before she was the Bride and before He was anoiinted by the king over the people. David defended the sheep and fought the battles of God’s people long before he was anointed King. The Man-child is physically born among us but we await his anointing and the birth of the Man-child ministry.)  

32 A light for revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of thy people Israel. 33 And his father and his mother were marvelling at the things which were spoken concerning him; 34 and Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel; and for a sign which is spoken against.  

This child Jesus and Jesus in the Man-child in our day will cause the falling of many. Act 3:22  Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me; to him shall ye hearken in all things whatsoever he shall speak unto you. 23  And it shall be, that every soul that shall not hearken to that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people(Of the people who once heard the voice of the Lord through His Man-child there were those who began to cease to listen to anything but their flesh and were destroyed. It will be the same in our day.)

(Those rejected by God will fall away from the Word and leave so their leaven will not pollute the rest. This child is also for the rising of many. Others will come and take their crown because they are obedient. 1Co 9:24-27 Know ye not that they that run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? Even so run; that ye may attain. 25 And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air: 27 but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.)

We received this by faith at random and it speaks of being tested by the Word to be with the Man-child Gideon - Jdg 7:4 And Jehovah said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.

Luk 8:18  Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath (Fruit), to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not (Fruit)from him shall be taken away even that which he thinketh he hath(The factious refuse to hear because of their love for their lusts. So what God gave to them of the knowledge and fruit of the Lord was taken away. All knowledge received from UBM is gone from them. They have told me this.  In the beginning they were grieved but then they didnt care. They admired the lamb but refused to eat the Lamb that He would live in them. Now they no longer even admire Him but have changed His likeness for a beast.)

Luk 6:21-26 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, (Because this proves who you are and it proves who they are.)  and when they shall separate you from their company, and reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy: for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for in the same manner did their fathers unto the prophets(The apostates rejected and killed the prophets and so it is today.)  

24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. 25 Woe unto you, ye that are full now! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you, ye that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for in the same manner did their fathers to the false prophets.

Joh 3:19-21 And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, lest his works should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest (meaning to Shine forth from them), that they have been wrought in God.

Emmanuel is God with us, and in us. Joh 5:19-30 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner(Jesus, as The Son, in His sons will do the same works as He did in His first body.) 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel(The sons will do the greater works they see their Father doing..)  

21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will.  (The Son in the sons will raise the dead)  22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son(The Son in the sons will judge the wicked)  23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. 

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man(Notice the Son of God in the Son of man has been given authority to Judge the wicked.) 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. 30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Joh 5:41-46 I receive not glory from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves. 43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.  (Many respect the word of those who represent themselves rather than our Father.) 44 How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that cometh from the only God ye seek not? 45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, on whom ye have set your hope. 46 For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of meWhat did Moses write of Jesus?

When Jesus multiplied the bread their eyes were opened to remember that Moses did the same thing. Joh 6:13-14 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over unto them that had eaten. 14 When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, This is of a truth the prophet that cometh into the worldMoses wrote of the coming prophet that was like him and we know it was Jesus but since history always repeats on a larger scale this is also true of Jesus coming in the Man-child prophets.

Stephen said in - Act 7:37-39 This is that Moses, who said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me. (Like Jesus the Man-child is being raised up on earth among the people of God.)  38 This is he that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel that spake to him in the Mount Sinai(Once again we see that an angel spoke to the Man-child Moses but the wicked didnt believe it.) and with our fathers: who received living oracles to give unto us: 39 to whom our fathers would not be obedient, but thrust him from them, and turned back in their hearts unto Egypt, (Just like the wicked from among God’s people today.)

Deu 18:15-19 Jehovah thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of theeof thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; 16 according to all that thou desiredst of Jehovah thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, (But notice the majority did not want to hear)  Let me not hear again the voice of Jehovah my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.  (The whole point of listening to God’s Word through His prophets is so that they die to self which they did not want to do.) 

17 And Jehovah said unto me, They have well said that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. (I.e. He will hold them responsible because they have rejected God’s Word through man. They have taken from and added to His Word like the last few verses in Revelation….)

Last night I was given a vision that I believe is about the prophet Jesus’ voice being heard through His vessels but then being disregarded. This caused them to be cut off as in Acts 3:23  And it shall be, that every soul that shall not hearken to that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.)  I was looking out of my window at a little bird with no particular markings that was singing. (The Lord showed me that this represents His pleasant voice going forth and at first being admired and accepted like some have come to us and listened.) Then the bird swooped down and landed on the concrete at the base of my house. As I watched the bird morphed into a bigger hawk or eagle type shape. (The Lord showed me that this represented the vessel they first listened to, who were based on the concrete or rock, becoming a judgment on those who ceased to listen. The Lamb becomes the Lion. This has happened for years now.) Then I was sharing with some people in my house who were listening to the Word intently and then as I was speaking they suddenly ignored me as I spoke and started to chatter senselessly to one another. They interrupted me rudely and became stupid. I noted through this process that our brother Greg was watching and listening to this scenario. (  Greg is a diminutive of Gregory. Gregory is an English name, derived from the Greek name 'Gregorios', which means 'to be awake or watchful'. Summary Meaning Vigilant, Watchful. I believe that this indicates that the righteous will learn from this scenario how important respecting the voice of the Lord is.)

1Pe 2:5-9 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall not be put to shame. 7 For you therefore that believe is the preciousness: but for such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; 8 and, A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence; for they stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are an elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

The Lord showed me that His Spirit in the Prophets was a stone that the builders rejected. 1Pe 1:10-11 Concerning which salvation the prophets sought and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11 searching what time or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did point unto, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glories that should follow them. The sons also suffer at the hands of the wicked. Jesus’ spirit in them is the stone which the builders rejected and they also will be come the head over the builders.

Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright, the morning star.  185 times Angels had relationships with men but the wicked think this all passed away with the apostles because they do not want the correction of the Word in their pride...

18-19 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book: 19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.

14-15 Blessed are they that wash their robesthat they may have the right to come to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city(The Bride)  15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that loveth and maketh a lie(The factious who went out from among us are all of this and more. Let the elect come out from among them.)

1Jn 2:18  Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh, even now have there arisen many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour. 19  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they all are not of us.

When did they go out from us? When they got corrected for their obvious sin!! and rejected Jesus, the Word.
