The Calling One One Wants: Pioneer by Julie Arduini

I learned a few years ago there is such a thing in faith as the pioneer. The pioneer is someone who sees/hears/reads/receives information from the Lord a little bit ahead of everyone else. It’s a lonely calling full of rejection and waiting.

Then, when the masses get on board, no one remembers the prayers/decrees/proclamations the pioneer uttered all along.

When I learned about the modern pioneer, the Biblical role model wasn’t very encouraging. John the Baptist was a pionner. He foretold the coming of Christ and begged people to make a way. His reward?

He was beheaded.


I definitely identify as a pioneer. There will be things I can discern from the Holy Spirit’s leading that are coming down the pike. Sometimes I’m meant to share it, but more than not, I’m to sit on it and pray. Either way, it’s hard. Lonely.

Since 2019, God has been asking me to pray for justice and for things happening behind closed doors that went against His will. I assumed it was the presidential election and prayed for that, but also for God’s justice and the end of those back door meetings. I certainly didn’t have a lot of information to work with. As 2019 ended and 2020 began, I sensed the year would be big.

I thought perhaps we would receive perfect vision about the matters I’d been praying about. That justice would be served. I kept praying.

Then Coronavirus. Quarantine.

I kept praying.

I sensed that Passover would be a breakthrough.

I prayed and praised.

And it was hard, because nothing in the natural seemed to prove I was on the right track.

I switched focus to the election and just prayed and prayed.

I felt that the back door meetings were tied to the election and that bad plans were in the works. Election night I was certain the pioneer prayers worked and injustice was avoided.

Until the results and the forthcoming witnesses and testimony from those who tried to vote or count votes and were denied justice.

We know where things are at and the pioneer ride for this prayer quest God has given me for justice has been as comfortable as a wagon ride down a mountain. Add to it the months I was away taking care of my mom, missing my family, and then devastated once she recovered to lose mom.


I’ve wanted to play dead and hope God passed me by.

But true pioneers don’t quit, especially if standing in the gap in prayer is their calling.

I haven’t forgotten to pray for justice and the end of secret meetings.

I did forget it wasn’t for me to define what that meant.

And in surrendering that, God has opened my eyes to a piece of what the praying pioneers are fighting for.

The justice goes way beyond the election and anything secret going on in the USA.

Same for all the secret meetings and agendas.

The fact that we were recently at a Defcon 3 or that global leaders/business people are resigning is not a surprise or scary to me. Why? It’s one of the puzzle pieces God gave me as I prayed this out. These pieces are coming together fast and it’s hard, because most people are still unaware of the scale of this assignment.

Here’s what I can say.

You don’t mock God.

You don’t mess with His children.

God is loving but His wrath is real. Not something to guilt you into doing something religious, but it’s a true story when a person or people intentionally work to harm God’s people and His way. When those people start to think they are God, well, their future isn’t pretty.

I write all this because I believe very soon the masses will receive information that will unveil the justice puzzle and the behind the door meetings. It will be devastating. There will be names we know and love who have done awful, awful, horrific things. There will be names we never trusted or cared for, maybe even actively spoke against who were good guys all along.

It will be life changing.

Can I be wrong?

Certainly. I’m human. But He is a promise keeper and I know enough about Him to know children are everything to Him. He exacts justice. And I’m pretty sure reading in His word, you can’t mock Him for long and not suffer consequences.

If you have that pioneer spirit, I pray you are encouraged and hold on tight. Don’t give up. Press in. Press in with your relationship with God through prayer and reading the Bible. Avoid putting all your focus in the world. It’s easy to make idols out of something, even in your quest for information.

If the whole pioneer thing is foreign to you but you sense something is off, that the world just isn’t adding up the way you thought it would, I encourage you to ask God to show you. Read Elijah. Jeremiah. Ezekiel.

If you feel like the news you use isn’t giving you the information you seek, I challenge you to download Telegram. If you need names of channels/people to read, I’m happy to help.

May we all, pioneers and the masses unite and not divide. That justice be served.

And to God all the glory.
