Friends, this is a very difficult word to write, and very different than The Words of encouragement The Lord usually speaks to me, but I cannot keep quiet as He Is calling The Church to repentance. As I poured my heart out at His feet, I was overwhelmed with grief. I couldn't contain it and it started pouring out as deep wailing.
I could feel the heart of God and how deeply grieved He Is at what the church has become.
He said with anguish in His voice:"Where is my pure bride?! Where is my virgin beloved?!
I am looking for her but I cannot find her!
All I see is a blood stained wedding dress!
All I see is hands lifted high and black hearts! All I hear are empty words and lying lips. You have made and altar on which you prostitute yourself and the gifts I have given you! You have blood on your hands, and you pervert my perfect creation!! You ask me: "How Lord?" I tell you that by keeping silent and not standing up for purity and justice you have blood on your hands!!
And you expect Me to receive your offerings and move in your life?! Ha! Your burnt offerings are a stench to my nostrils!
You expect Me to forgive you when you cannot even forgive your sons and daughters! My Son did not die so you could do what you please expecting to hide things from Me! Don't you know I see all and know your innermost thoughts and desires? Do you think I sit here unfazed by what you have allowed in my house? It is now a building that bares My name but My presence is far from it! Am I still Your God? Are you still my bride? Or are you a harlot just like Gomer who lusted after other lovers and loved the pagan raisin cakes? How much longer shall I wait? How much more shall I give you? I don't owe you anything! I gave you my most precious gift! My one and only begotten son and I will not let Him be mocked! Do you know who I am??!! Have you forgotten that I am the Creator of he universe? That I hold all in my hands? That I could destroy the whole Earth with My finger? I am a loving, patient, merciful God, but I will not tolerate your disobedience forever!
I am setting a plumb line in your midst and whoever and whatever does not align with it, will be laid waste. Turn from your wicked ways!! Pray, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive your sin, and will heal your land!
Oh but I have set aside a Remnant! Reserved for Me! A people completely and totally sold out to Me! With pure hearts, pure motives, clean hands and clean lips.
A people who cares for the orphan, the widow and the oppressed! A people that have been through the refining fire and have come out not smelling like smoke because they have made Me their Only God !!! Their hearts are completely surrendered, they do not compromise, they do not sell themselves, they have nothing in common with the enemy. They worship in Spirit and Truth! They honor My Son! They love their brothers and sisters, they don't care what man thinks, they are not conformed to the world, in fact they are not what the world would have chosen, but I see what you don't see, I look at the heart not the outward appearance. They look different, they speak differently and they are the light of the world and salt of the Earth! They are my Sons and Daughters of Light! Set apart for such a time as this!
If you don't want to miss the greatest move of My Spirit, if you want to be part of the greater works coming to this Earth, repent! Turn back to me my prodigals, and I will welcome you with open arms! I will clothe you with a robe of righteousness, put a ring of covenant on your finger and brand new sandals on your feet so you will be ready to walk with me anew! I will take away your shame and bestow on you a crown or honor.
For My anger is but for a moment, but My favor is for life.
Song of Solomon 2:8-13 NKJV
The Beloved’s Request
8 The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes Leaping upon the mountains, Skipping upon the hills. 9 My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he stands behind our wall; He is looking through the windows, Gazing through the lattice.
10 My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away. 11 For lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land. 13 The fig tree puts forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grapes Give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away!
2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
And the LORD asked me, "What do you see, Amos?" "A plumb line," I replied. Then the Lord said, "Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.
