The Lord dictated the following word to me today – it is a word to those who call themselves by His Name. I will not sully it with any personal comments or interpretation. May it stand and speak to all who venture past this watering hole in the year 5782.
“The House of Ahab and the House of Eli are brought to naught. Separate yourselves wholly unto Me. Choose this day which side of the line you stand and do not waver. For those who choose rightly, I provide fresh strength to endure.
For those who choose the flesh, I cut you off from My sight – for how can That which is Holy gaze upon that which is unholy? How can That which is Holy allow that which is willingly unholy and deliberately defiled into My presence? No, it is time! Let those who name themselves by the Name of the Lord be holy in all that they are and all that they do. Now is not the time to dabble in this and that and to test the waters of defilement. Do you not know what time you stand in? Do you not see what consequence comes from your choices? If not, then, because you are blind and follow blind guides, the ditch of compromise and destruction is your portion.
Oh, you say I am merciful – and yes, that is true, but I am also Holy and men would do well to remember this. And I have sent trumpeters to sound the alarm. And you have blocked your ears and turned your faces away, and continued on in your willful choice of the pleasures of this world that bring only the stench of rotting flesh into your temple. Your eyes have gazed upon that which is unclean and filled your whole body with darkness. And now, in a day when clear sight and holy awe are the only things that will help you, you find yourselves blind and led like lambs to the slaughter.
You will never find the map to true North by milling around in the marketplace of sin. have I not done enough in sending My Son? Have I not provided a way to cleanse your soul? And yet, those who name themselves by My Name think to blend in with the world and walk straddling the line… and think they will be saved in the day that burns like an oven. Your own choices will testify against you in that day.
Do not think that I Am changes. My plumb line stands. Holy lives are hidden in the day of My anger, but those who dwell carelessly in a day when I call you to sober prayer and fasting have brought their ends down upon their own heads.
Therefore this day, I call you to account. Examine your ways. See where you stand and make your choice now. Think not that one cup of clean water will detox a soul defiled by the filth of Babylon. Casual enquirers do not mean business with Me. I will not tickle your fancy nor indulge your whims. Is not the thought of the loss of your soul a serious enough consequence to wake you up at this time?
A heart broken with sorrow for sin I will not despise. And a bruised reed I will not break, but what a man sows, that shall he reap. And harvest time for all your sowings is at the door. Therefore be sober and repent.”
Isa 3:10 Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. Isa 3:11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with them, for what their hands have done shall be done to them.
Isa 22:12 And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth: Isa 22:13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.
Amo 5:18 Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you want the day of the Lord? It is darkness and not light; Amo 5:19 It is as if a man fled from a lion and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall and a serpent bit him. Amo 5:20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light? Even very dark with no brightness in it? Amo 5:21 I hate, I despise your feasts, and I will not smell a savor or take delight in your solemn assemblies. Amo 5:22 Though you offer Me your burnt offerings and your cereal offerings, I will not accept them, neither will I look upon the peace or thank offerings of your fatted beasts. Amo 5:23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs, for I will not listen to the melody of your harps. Amo 5:24 But let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream.
Psa 51:2 Wash me thoroughly [and repeatedly] from my iniquity and guilt and cleanse me and make me wholly pure from my sin! Psa 51:3 For I am conscious of my transgressions and I acknowledge them; my sin is ever before me. Psa 51:4 Against You, You only, have I sinned and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified in Your sentence and faultless in Your judgment.
Psa 51:17 My sacrifice [the sacrifice acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart [broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise.
Jer 15:1 THEN THE Lord said to me, Though Moses and Samuel stood [interceding for them] before Me, yet My mind could not be turned with favor toward this people. Send them out of My sight and let them go!
Jer 15:2 And if they say to you, Where shall we go? then tell them, Thus says the Lord: Such as are [destined] for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for famine, to famine; and such as are for captivity, to captivity.
Jer 15:6 You have rejected and forsaken Me, says the Lord. You keep going in reverse. Therefore I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you; I am weary of relenting [concerning your punishment]. Jer 15:7 I will winnow them with a fan and a winnowing fork in the gates of the land; I will bereave them [of children], I will destroy My people; from their [evil] ways they did not return. Jer 15:8 I will increase the number of their widows more than the sand of the seas. I will bring upon them, [both] against the mother of young men and the young men [themselves], a destroyer at noonday. I will cause anguish and terrors to fall upon her [Jerusalem] suddenly.
Jer 14:7 O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us [prays Jeremiah], deal and work with us for Your own name’s sake [that the heathen may witness Your might and faithfulness]! For our backslidings are many; we have sinned against You. Jer 14:8 O Hope of Israel, her Savior in time of trouble, why should You be like a sojourner in the land and like a wayfaring man who turns aside and spreads his tent to tarry [only] for a night? Jer 14:9 Why should You be [hesitant and inactive] like a man stunned and confused, like a mighty man who cannot save? Yet You, O Lord, are in the midst of us, and we are called by Your name; do not leave us! Jer 14:10 [And the Lord replied to Jeremiah] Thus says the Lord to this people [Judah]: In the manner and to the degree already pointed out have they loved to wander; they have not restrained their feet. Therefore the Lord does not accept them; He will now [seriously] remember their iniquity and punish them for their sins. …Jer 14:13 Then said I, Alas, Lord God! Behold, the [false] prophets say to them, You will not see the sword, nor will you have famine; but I [the Lord] will give you assured peace (peace that lasts, the peace of truth) in this place. Jer 14:14 Then the Lord said to me, The [false] prophets prophesy lies in My name. I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, nor have I spoken to them. They prophesy to you a false or pretended vision, a worthless divination [conjuring or practicing magic, trying to call forth the responses supposed to be given by idols], and the deceit of their own minds. Jer 14:15 Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the [false] prophets who prophesy in My name–although I did not send them–and who say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. Jer 14:16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword; and they shall have none to bury them–them, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. For I will pour out their wickedness upon them [and not on their false teachers only, for the people could not have been deceived except by their own consent].
