“Behold! There is a water, and there is a fire! They are coming to test the quality of your faith.”

Dear siblings in Christ,

During my morning quiet time on Sept 24, 2018, I felt the Lord speak to me as I meditated on Psalms 50:16–23. But before I delve into it, I feel I should preface it.


All of us who read His words below would do well to do some serious introspection. The thrust of His message seems to be about the condition of our hearts. It is not just about our deeds, but rather about our motivation behind our deeds, even the righteous ones, especially the righteous ones.

What has the grace of the Most High birthed in me? Self-righteousness? Entitlement? Hypocrisy? Arrogance? Legalism? Dissension? Idolatry? Factionalism? Licentiousness? The Lord wants to emphasize that no matter what good works we do, if any of the above or the like are what we are harboring in our hearts, then our hearts are truly far from him, and what is coming as his discipline will expose that truth, whether we want to acknowledge it or not. Although His discipline is always intended to prune and sanctify us, our responses to His discipline will determine whether we reap life or death.

The Message

There are people who have My words on their lips, who profess My statutes, and who declare to keep My commandments, but I know what is in their hearts. They do this not so that they may please Me, but so that they may please themselves, in that they may hear the praises of those around them who see them and therefore be pleased in themselves because of those praises. They think I am as man and cannot see the heart. But I do see the heart, and this is what I see: their hearts are far from Me.

What right do these have who profess My name, who keep My law, who keep My statutes and commandments and yet have their hearts far from Me, what right do these have to be called by My name? Am I truly the one they serve? After all, who is the true Jew, and who is the true disciple? Who is the true Israelite? Is it not he in whom I have put My Spirit? Is it not he in whom I’ve worked a transformation? Is it not he in whom I’ve created a new heart and new mind? Is it not he whom I’ve predestined to be conformed to the likeness of My Son? Is it not he who keeps My statutes and commandments, not out of a dead religious mind-set, but out of love that is born of the Spirit and out of fear, reverence, and awe for the Most High who sanctifies him? Then why do these who run after religion and dead works not come to Me that I might sanctify them? Do they believe their works and traditions will cleanse them? All such righteous works of the flesh are simply filthy rags. Those who pride themselves in them do so only to look good in their own eyes, in the eyes of others, and in the eyes of their god, who is only a dead god.

I am the Living God. I am the River of Life. I am the Bread of Heaven. I am Everlasting Life. Worship Me, the only Living God, that you may have life. Repent of your religion! Repent of your dead works! Repent of your man-made traditions and all your self-righteousness! I am Life! I am what you seek! Your dead gods cannot offer it to you, but I can!

He who comes to Me, I will by no means turn away. And anyone who abides in Me shall be full of life. I see into your hearts, you people. I am not like the men of this world who see only the appearance; I see the heart, and I tell you, you who pride yourselves in religion and dead works, you have no life in you, for your hearts are far from Me. You put on a good show, but I see beyond the show, and I see your faith, and it is not in Me. And whatsoever is not of Me or rooted in Me, can and will be shaken.

Hear Me now, and listen to me! Repent of your dead works and religion! They have no life, and therefore, they cannot give you life. They are dead, and if you abide in them, death is what you shall reap for your souls. Repent of them, and let go of them!

Behold! There is a water, and there is a fire! A water for cleansing and a fire for purging! They are coming and are here even now. They are coming to test the quality of your faith and to show you the roots of your works. When they are upon you, and when they sweep away all your religion and tradition and works, you shall see the roots of these and know that these were not of Me, for neither fire nor water can harm anything that is rooted in Me.

Your hypocrisy will stare back at you. Your dead religion shall lie dead before you. Your man-made traditions shall weep and wail before you, and all your self-righteous works shall wither away before you. Then you shall know that these things that you practiced were not of Me, that the ones you put your faith in were not of Me, that the faith you claimed to profess in Me was a lie, and that the one who called you to repent while you still unashamedly practiced these things was the one called Holy and True, the Living God.

In that day, when you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts. Even in those days, after I have allowed the fire and the water to visit you for your many iniquities and to show you the idolatry and hypocrisy hidden away in your hearts, even right now, if you shall hearken to the voice of My Holy Spirit and not harden your hearts, I shall hear from heaven and save you. If you will acknowledge your guilt and how unashamedly you profaned My holy name by your many idolatrous deeds and all the evils you practiced, secretly or openly, while still hypocritically professing to be called by My name, I shall hear from heaven. I shall forgive you and cleanse you, and I will not remember your sins anymore.

It is your destiny to be conformed to the likeness of my Son. Hear, O you who profess your faith in Him, but only he who endures to the end will inherit this destiny. It is My desire to see you conformed to His likeness, but I tell you this day, you who profess My name and yet live wickedly, if you will not yield to My pruning and stubbornly reject My discipline and continue to stubbornly walk in all the lies you’ve believed and all the evils you’ve hypocritically practiced while falsely pretending to be Mine, a day is coming when I shall cut you off. Your time shall then be cut off, and you will be left as good for nothing except to be burned. You shall find yourselves where there shall be weeping, wailing, cursing, and gnashing of teeth, all surrounded by fires of terrible agony that shall burn forever, from which there shall be no redemption.

Behold! I set before you life and death. Choose life, O mortal man! Choose life that you may live and that you may know unto everlasting that I, even I, Yahweh, Am Salvation!

Thank you for this important word, Brother Sujit. Bless you & your family.

Mr. Thomas, thank you brother, I feel that the entire body of Christ is blessed by these words coming from our Lord and Father. What an amazingly profound and yet exposing Word for these upcoming days. Thank you so very much for sharing, as I would like to read this out loud to all who profess to be “righteous” in their own works. This is big wake up call for all of us to keep a heart of flesh as we commune with our Lord and Father with the help of the Holy Spirit. God bless you for being obedient and sharing this with us.

Thank you Jesus and Brother Sujit for this powerful word. By God’s grace, I have seen both the consuming fire and water as rainfall in dream or vision, now I get confirmation of the interpretation. Thank you for that Jesus, please render us willing to be more cleansed by you for we are accept your corrections and we are willing to be made more Christlike.
This morning, I would hear on my Spirit:”Everyday and each single moment of your life, you need to ask to yourself whether you are true child of God or the child of the devil, his enemy.” These words have hit me hard and I have noticed that I am recently repenting more and more like if the fear of displeasing God has now taken deep roots in my soul. I have heard from Brother Sadhu, that the deeper is our walk in God and the closer we draw to his throne, more Holy Spirit will convict us of hidden sins or offences to God’s heart, this to bring us more in alignmen with his spirit and in the likeness of our big Brother Jesus.

May the Glory starts shining more and more on the children of God for us to honour our awesome God now and forever. Amen.

Thank you Brother Sujit for this powerful Word which reminds us we must start with our own hearts & souls to purify these & our own garments FIRST in our walk with Him. I doubt I am alone in stating that the deeper my walk with the Lord, the more stains I notice on my garments and realize new things for which I should repent. 😢. This is why any arrogance, self-righteousness & pride must leave us so we can truly be indwelled by Our Father. It is hard, painful, and embarrassing, but we know His refining is the only way for us to spend eternity in heaven and for each of us to become what He envisioned for us, while we were still in our mother’s womb.

I dream a hand drop me into the fire and after I see outside wet. I have another dream I see on the top of the Earth threre are fire before going to heaven. I understand the second dream is to purify your body before going to Heaven.
May I find Grace to you Father and forgive me all my sins.

As did Yeshua, we must distinguish between laws/commandments/statutes from YHVH (Torah, plus the new one added by Yeshua), and laws/commandments/statutes from men (exemplified by Talmud/denominational rituals/etc.). The One (Father/Son/Spirit) gave Torah to Israel through Moses. This made Israel unique on Earth. To no other people did YHVH give written instructions for life! Yeshua did not abolish Torah – He kept it! He loved it!
After all, He created it and gave it to Moses! If you are His follower, you will follow Him in keeping Torah. “He who has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me, will be loved by My Father. And I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.”
It’s nice to hear my children tell me they love me. It’s nicer to see them heed my advice.

Wonderful word Sujit. Obviously a true and important word from God. Did you notice how it confirms the fire and water revelation from the the word posted just before yours? Lana Vawser saw fire and water coming from hidden wells. Fire for purification, and water for cleansing. God bless both of you for accurate words of God. Out of the mouth of two or three as witnesses to a thing! I believe, Lord.

This is such an accurate word.
