Thank you for being here. Please read what the Spirit has to say to the churches in the book of Revelation. You will find that the tone of this message is consistent with the heart of the loving, just and jealous God of the Bible.
Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy. This is a warning and an invitation:
False prophets are arising to comfort the flesh.
Sold out preachers are providing lattes, instead of the full counsel of the Lord.
Lukewarm Christians are seasoning their speech with the demonic hate of sugar and not the grace of salt.
The spirit of the Antichrist has come right into the wide-open door of the church to fulfill prophecy, by scoffing with finger of the Accuser of the Brethren, "Shut your mouth. People have always said this stuff. Jesus is not coming back soon."
Indeed, people have -- Including Jesus. Not to mention Paul, Peter, John and other disciples, apostles and prophets.
These scoffers fulfill biblical prophecy, but they are not people who have taken the narrow door that leads to life. (2 Peter 3:4)
Greedy eyes, ears and hearts on the wide and easy path that leads to destruction are keeping too much of the world and their will to hear and see the good shepherd, warning, loving, and guiding. Our feelings and opinions do not define what the mercy of the Lord looks like or sounds like. His word defines his character and his plans. A gospel that isn't hated by the world is not a gospel that saves us from the world. It's deception. The Bible makes this clear.
America has not repented. It has ignored God's long-suffering and patient warnings.
The Lord gave me a dream of a field at golden hour with too few workers. Only two men. When I showed up, they were waiting to see if anyone else was coming.
The field represents evangelism and other Kingdom work. The golden hour means that the hour is late. The sun is about to set and night is coming.
While it is daytime, we must do the works of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work. John 9:4
I was sitting on a large boulder in the corner of the field, under a huge cedar tree – biblically symbolic of Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of the church, and the cross that offers life to us.
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
‘ The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’? “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” Matthew 21:42-44
I was about to offer to help the two men.
The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Matthew 8:37
Then, he took me to a church group, sitting around a table, hogging food, and not sharing it with inmates who were starving next door (unbelievers). Cheese and other delicacies, representing man's works and non - essentials, were being contently eaten.
Jesus addresses this church with this warning:
"Repent and do the first works lest I remove your lampstand from its place." Revelation 2:5
The servants of Jesus that were in the field, wondering where everyone was, began to take the bread off the table that the church was not as interested in. We took it into the room with the inmates in order to feed them. They were starving.
I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35
Jesus was not in the midst of this church, but outside. The door has been shut on him, but the Christians in my dream didn't realize it. They were oblivious in their comfort. They were even singing with their backs turned on him. God's remnant was feeding the prisoners bread, failing to get the churches attention and assistance, and going on with Jesus, without them.
I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
There is a false belief that being a Christian means that Jesus follows us around. That he comes alongside our will to make our dreams come true and approve of whatever good life we believe we are living and wanting.
But, Jesus made it very clear that we are not our own and that we are to follow him. To watch with him. To go to the Father and do as we see the Father doing. He said that his servants will do exploits in his name. And that we will die to ourselves and our desires and take up our cross and follow him. He is grieved when our loyalties lie with the world, our comforts and with people. With family, above him. Friends. Even Abraham was tested when he was called by God to sacrifice his favourite son, Isaac. (Read what happened in Genesis 22.)
God sacrificed his son for us. He asks for our sacrificial love in return.
A ring of refining fire is coming for the church who has not abandoned all to follow Jesus. Some will recognize this ring of fire for what it is and will begin to follow Jesus for real on the difficult and narrow road.
Many churches will be disintegrated. This will cause many pastors to complete the hardening of their hearts against the true God of the Bible. Some will mistake the Lord's discipline on their self-appointed, lofty, and credentialed career-ministry for an attack by the enemy on their "righteous" work. Do not be mistaken. (2 Tim. 3:5)
The next stage of judgment will advance beyond the reprobate mind (Romans 1). The next stage of judgment upon the reprobate mind will be insanity. Madness. A spirit of delusion, hate, rage and the inability to comprehend truth and reason will be loosed in North America. Both demonically, and through the media. The same spirit that we look at in ancient history and shake our heads to say, "How can human beings be so barbaric" will seize those in this generation, who do not love the truth.
The enemy knows how to "sophisticate" sin according to the culture and our lusts. He has drawn the church out from the simplicity of Christ, to bring her into captivity through the worship of idols and love of the world and its ideologies.
The short books book of 1 and 2 John explain how we are not of God the Father if we are of the world. He is only revealed to us through his Son, Jesus, the Word of God made flesh. We are saved by grace, not by works, lest an man should boast (Eph2:9). The evidence and fruit of salvation lies within scripture. He explains that we are not saved if we continue in sin. And, if we delight in sin. He explains that those who love him keep his commandments. He also emphasizes the top commandments, to love God with all of our heart, soul and mind. And, to forgive and love others. Unforgiveness and bitterness spiritually blinds us.
God's call on the life of a believer is simple. I've written enough in the past about the serpent in the pews of the church and the various forms that it's taking. How it camouflages. There's no virtue in the mire of "social complexity", self-love, or tolerance of sin. Worldliness is condemnable to a holy God. We must seek his forgiveness through genuine hearts of repentance. We are only conformed to the likeness of Christ and prepared as the bride of Christ to reflect his glory if we are steadfastly fixated on him. If our eyes are on the world, then that's what we are filled with. If our eyes are on ourselves and our pleasures, then that's what we are worshipping. It could even be our children or our work. Let our eyes be filled with Jesus, the Word of God.
God does not delight in the punishment of the wicked. Yet, he does punish, because he is Holy. First, he offers merciful warnings and extends his love with passionate fervency.
I don't know if this last call has a margin of days or years. Either way, we do not have the luxury of time. Jesus is the only sure preparation for what lies ahead in an unrepentant North America. Only his perfect love casts out fear. Hallelujah.
The church must stop wasting time loving others with the sugar of the devil and start serving the bread of life. But first, it needs to truly eat it! Chew it. Savor it. He's loved us enough to die to give it to us. Are we leaving it on the table or are we opening his gifts? Are we sharing them? Are we offering him what he requires?
Choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
God bless you, as you abide in Him, who keeps us. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
📖 From 2 Corinthians 11:
I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I promised you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. I am afraid, however, that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may be led astray from your simple and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims a Jesus other than the One we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the One you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it way too easily.…
. . . And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. . .
. . . I repeat: Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then tolerate me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting. In this self-confident boasting I am not talking as the Lord would, but as a fool. Since many are boasting in the way the world does, I too will boast. You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise! In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or puts on airs or slaps you in the face. To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that!
