This morning, the Lord was showing me things which are out of balance. I saw things in the nations and in homes which are not level or balanced. I began to understand that some things and some people are about to come crashing down.
Then I began to see people being caught in infidelity. Some of these people were well known as celebrities and leaders. Others were unknown, but what was common to all was that they will soon be exposed.
I asked the Lord if this was about something in the natural or something spiritual, and the Lord said both. Then He said, “I cannot bless those who are unfaithful in their relationships with Me and their spouses.”
Then I saw some people being exposed. Instead of becoming humble and repenting, they became aggressive and defended their behavior based on things contrary to the Word of God and the social norms of the majority of people. Their attempts to justify their behavior made them look worse and increased the danger of their falling away. The real danger is that they have chosen to step outside the Lord’s blessing and favor. When they are exposed, they will not have a defender or advocate, and their fall will be great.
There is a strong need for repentance and getting back into a right relationship with the Lord and other people. To some of you, I am supposed to say, “You are in great danger because you have stepped out from under your cover of protection. Don’t try to mix your faith in the Lord with other belief systems. Do not embrace socially accepted but immoral lifestyles. The patience of the Lord is at an end. Repent now and get back into a right relationship with your first love.”
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.” (Revelation 2:4-5)
