On the night of January 1, 2017, I had a night vision that I am led to share. I found myself in front of a large church preparing to speak. I was being fitted with all sorts of contraptions that were supposed to broadcast the sound better, but I kept trying to remove them, as I knew that they would be more of an impediment for the Word being spoken rather than helping.
The church was packed when the Pastor introduced me, and as I began to speak, I noticed the congregation did not seem to hear me, so I removed the microphone, the last device I had received. I began to boldly proclaim the Word of God and admonish the crowd for their sins and compromising lifestyles. However, as I continued to speak, one by one the people got up and walked out. The pastor poked his head in once or twice and was a bit annoyed. He was more concerned that he was losing ‘members’ than the fact that people were not interested in hearing the true Word of God. He abruptly left and went outside, gathering people to start preparing food and games in hopes that he could keep people from leaving the church by entertaining them. He was more concerned about the membership numbers than the true Word of God.
I decided to walk up and down the aisles speaking and making eye contact to be sure the crowd was hearing me. As I did, I was shocked at the blatant disrespect for the spoken Word. People continued to get up and leave, until finally the entire church was empty. I was heart-broken, but not surprised.
When I asked Father if He wanted me to write down this vision and share it, He confirmed, and this is what He spoke.
“Tell My pastors and My shepherds that many have failed greatly in leading My flock. I hold them accountable for each and every soul who has not been taught My true Word and has not been prepared for all that is upon you. I set them as leaders and guides, teachers, to take My flock from milk to meat and train them to bring up others. More emphasis is placed on tithes and numbers and memberships, food and games and entertainment than on anything else!
I have come to judge the house of the Lord and you pastors and shepherds will be first to be tried! Woe to those who do not take their positions with great reverence and sincerity, and who treat their positions like any other position in the work force or industries of your world. The sins of your congregations will be on you! To whom much responsibility is given, much is required, and I have found so many wanting.
I have warned you, so be not shaken when you meet your fate.
