The Doors Are Closing

This message was originally posted on June 22, 2017. Those who were subscribed via email at the time may recall some of the wording being different, and hence some of what it seemed to imply. God has dealt with me over my particular interpretation of what I saw, and what I subsequently spoke regarding it. Nonetheless, it remains extremely relevant at this time, so I am reposting it with the proper changes.

The vessel must not be haughty in its gift, and be quick to confess its faults.


Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
Isaiah 26:20-21

This is a cry of the Lord to His people in this vital hour, as His hand lifts the veil from a great evil that has long hidden in darkness. As the current iteration Mystery Babylon desperately rears her head on every front, it is nearly time for the tally of her sins in this generation to be completed and the prayer of the saints to be answered by fire for a new day.

But in the short interlude, the Lord has been sealing His faithful (Ezekiel 9, Revelation 7:3) – those who heed His calling and obey – that they may endure the trial of His wrath upon that wicked system. For the day into which we enter is a dark night upon the current corruption of this world along those who partake in it; but it is a bright dawning of Christ within the hearts of His true people.

…shut thy doors about thee:
hide thyself as it were for a little moment,
until the indignation be overpast.

The doors of His tabernacle are the doors of our hearts, which must be uncompromisingly shut to the entering in of all but the King of Glory Himself. For outside, the sword will bereave; therefore, let not the inside also be filled with death. This is meant primarily in a spiritual sense, even though it will not be without difficulty in the flesh. Every door not shut up to the enemy and his version of the world is a door being widely opened to the judgement of God upon His enemies – and judgement begins from His house. The ear which continues taking heed of Babylon’s siren-song even as she falls is an ear that Christ will cut off along with her. She projects the most power as she herself weakens, and she spreads the greatest fear at the time of her fall, when truly the apostles & prophets are commanded to rejoice gladly over her.

For, behold, the Lord cometh out of His place
to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:
the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

By the hand of God and the abiding faith of His current remnant, the doors of His house are already closing. Be found remaining in Him, and He in you. For He is that house, as are His faithful.

God is within her (the City of God), she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
Psalm 46:5

I do not claim what the time ahead looks like, nor that we are anywhere near the final end of this age. Mystery Babylon rises and falls throughout history. I am however convinced that the predictions of many in the past several generations will be shown as mistaken, and many of their prophecies and visions revealed to be carnal. (Some already know this, but the Bride as a whole has yet to move past these distractions). In any case, do not weep, but rather rejoice over Babylon, every time she falls. Any resulting hardship will simply produce better men of God for the generations ahead.

God is not yet finished His work in the earth.


The Lord impressed this exact scripture (Isaiah 26:20-21) upon my mind after experiencing a brief vision when I went to take a nap (June 22/2017). I saw a pair of massive double-doors being slowly closed in unison together – one great figure closing one door, and another great figure closing the other. (I was not made aware of their identity.) The point is that these doors were being closed by God’s decree. (The doors were as high as my eyes could see, and had the appearance of gigantic slabs of a plain, unmarked stone. The sight was seen as through a heavy fog: so that the focus was upon these doors.) I simply knew that they closed for much the same purpose as the door of Noah’s ark was shut by God – for judgement upon a corrupt & bloody world system created by the fallen ones and perpetuated by wicked men, especially among God‘s people.


Resurrection Life

And Enoch walketh habitually with God, and he is not, for God hath taken him.
Genesis 5:24 (YLT)

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Hebrews 11:5


§IALL THINGS NEW


Although the death of the body is no longer to be feared by those in Christ, nevertheless, we ought not so quickly respect or contentedly resign to its unnatural sleep, but rather always gladly strive to ascend in the new life which Christ Jesus has purchased for us; even to the full redemption of our bodies.

“Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen.”
Luke 24:5-6

O, that the power of the curse were not so highly esteemed by those on whose behalf it has been lifted, and in whom it can be undone!

The things of the Spirit of God seem far off and ethereal to the carnally minded, who deem embodiment itself a curse. But to be with the Lord is to still be embodied: it is not be disembodied, but rather to be transfigured in body. “For there is a spiritual body.”

At this very moment, Jesus is sitting on the throne of majesty in a literal human body, even the same body which a young Hebrew servant-girl bore in her womb. But that same body, which was just as able to die as our own bodies, was also made incorrubtible by the power of God’s Spirit, of whom it had been conceived.

If therefore we ourselves have been born of the Spirit of God in His regeneration, then we too have become a generation conceived of the Holy Spirit until Christ is fully formed in us, so that even our body is able to become blameless – just as the body which Christ walked in and died in was blameless – and ought to be honored to such an end. Yes, these bodies are able to be walked in even as He walked, and to do, as He said, “greater works than these,” by the Law of the Spirit of Life in Him. And although they might still be able to be made subject to death, they are now, by His quickening Spirit, much more able to be made subject to a completed resurrection – even as death could not hold Him. For the everlasting generation of Jesus Christ into which we are caught up is born with the intent that we should increasingly partake in His divine nature.

If then our old man is put fully to death, how can our new man not be raised fully to life: even the body, which also belongs to the New Man, which is Christ’s own body? And this can indeed be, since the bodies of the redeemed are already able to be made subject to His life even now – He who was able to be transfigured even before His death, yet still submitted to it on our behalf, that He might taste death for us all, and we could obtain His resurrection life.


§II THE QUICKENING SPIRIT


And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Romans 8:10-11

Here there are two Persons of the Godhead expected to be dwelling in us. The first is Christ, with whom our body still remains “dead because of sin.” And this is where men tend to stop, which is the miserable life of Romans 7. But the second Person here is the Spirit, by whose power God “quickens our mortal bodies.” Therefore, it is unlawful for us to comfortably accept the death at work in our members when the gift of the Holy Spirit to us is the same power which raised up Christ from the dead!

So then, by the rebirth of that Spirit, we are no longer of the seed of the first Adam; but rather of the Last, who in us becomes a life-giving Spirit. And if this be so, then that same Spirit who raised Christ Jesus from out of the dead is able also to do such a work in us, if in Him we likewise die. For if we in the new birth have already become like Him, whose body was able to die, yet now lives; how much closer are we (than we had thought) to His full resurrection life, even the redemption of our very bodies in transfiguration! For by Him we are unashamed to look upon He whose Word is near, “even in your mouth and in your heart.”

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (ESV)

Now, might we still die an earthly death, just as generations of generations have done before us? It may well be. Are we greater than they who gave life and limb for the gospel to reach our own ears, whose bodies expired, as all things have been cursed to do? We dare not presume, and may God be the judge. Yet transfiguration in this life is not necessarily our only gift, if we should lay hold of the resurrection life of Christ Jesus. Why should this glorious truth not be preached to those whose manifestation as sons of God has been groaned for by the whole of creation in every age since death entered in, and still groans to this day? Will not the God who answered the prophets of old by fire much more answer the righteous in things that pertain to better promises?

For the creation was not subjected to futility without hope; and that Hope has now come, and dwells even now in the redeemed, and even now graces many a life – and yet, do we still wallow in that which He has done away with? When will we ourselves be done with it?

Again,

“Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen.”
Luke 24:5-6


§III LIFE THROUGH DEATH


Or is it all in vain that the Spirit within us is provoked to righteous jealousy? No! Salvation is nearer than when we first believed; but who will labor for its fruit today, rather than waiting upon the death of the curse to do its work on their behalf? What many glories shall be missed by those who invested little in the work of the Master!

Why should we wait upon death to be our first and only enemy truly conquered, when Christ charged forth through all enemies in life, and conquered death as His last? Let us rather, as He did, conquer all other things at the present time, that we may also conquer death at its appearing, even as He did. Let rather He who began the good work in us be allowed to bring it to completion, even unto the Day of Christ; whose Day’s appearing begins within the secret confines of the heart, pouring over from thence into the creation around it; and whose Spirit groans for His very likeness become manifest even in our bodies! And His likeness is that of a man from whom the world stands aghast in rejection, and that of one who has been smitten by God and afflicted.

…His appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and His form beyond that of the children of mankind…
Isaiah 52:14 (ESV)

If the image of God is to be seen in us, then it is an image to be painted with blood – both His and ours. Sanctification is costly, to the degree that one values the vanity of self.

For if those whom He justifies He also glorifies, then He does so by an ongoing resurrection through death in those who go about bearing the dying of Christ’s body in their own, filling up what sufferings are yet lacking in it. For even if we were to walk with God as Enoch or Elijah did, it is not necessarily our assured right to be translated without suffering at the hands of evil men, but only a possible privilege.

For there is no part of Christ’s body of flesh that was not subjected to scourging and death. Likewise, there can be no true part of Christ’s mystical body (the church) that does not partake in at least a similitude of the same suffering. Therefore, any member of this body that has not so humbled themselves remains a shame unto it, and remains unworthy to partake in His resurrection life.

And if one now says, “Ah, yet by the living sacrifice of His body and blood, He has made me worthy;” then let that one know, that such a powerful grace should be becoming manifest in a living sacrifice of themselves unto His workmanship.

There is a day appointed in which the God of peace will perfom a quick work, to sanctify us not in part but in whole, and to keep us blamless in spirit, in soul, and in body unto His Day: and His Day has begun to dawn already.

O, that our mortal flesh would see His appearing in immortality!
O, for the creature’s newness of life to be manifest as the noonday!
O, to lay hold of this gift, and the meekness of spirit that is its price!

Beware How You Hasten The Day

For, brothers, you became imitators of the churches of God being in Judea in Christ Jesus, because you also suffered these things by your own fellow countrymen, as they also by the Jews, who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, also driving us out, and not pleasing God, and being contrary to all men, hindering us from speaking to the nations in order that they be saved, to fill up their sins always. But the wrath has come on them to the uttermost.
1 Thessalonians 2:14-16

The term “Judeo-Christian,” as it has come to be used, is beyond oxymoronic: it is truly an absurdism. When Judaism and Christianity are properly defined, there is no such actual worldview. The appearing of the Messiah forever determined the new downward trajectory of the former and brought forth the latter as its true fulfillment; and never the twain shall meet. “Judeo-Christian” is simply the (historically new) rhetorical cloak of the zionist-imperialists to excuse their ongoing subversion of many nations; it is a trigger-word coined by the Synagogue of Satan to demonize all who would dare to oppose the modern-day Judaizers, who have snuck their leaven and mammon into the church for fear of the gospel.

And they have done this most effectively in the west by turning the prophetic scriptures into worldly apocalyptic fantasies, which, because they reject the life-giving Spirit of Christ, require a return to the form of the Law that Christ has already fulfilled, as well as the establishment of an earthly kingdom with earthly Jerusalem (which God destroyed) at its head. Jesus opposed these very men in His own day, saying, “If you were children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill Me, a man who has spoken the truth to you, which I heard alongside of God. Abraham did not do this.” (Jn 8:39-40)

You cannot force the end of the age. And even if you could, the only biblically prescribed method of “hastening the day of the Lord” is to be a pure and spotless bride for Christ. Whoring around with worldly powers and playing into Jewish fables about the end times will not accomplish that. It may appear to succeed for certain moments, at least for as long as the narrative can be sustained; but it will ultimately fail to achieve such an end. And when the Lord sweeps His true children into a true revival of His heavenly kingdom in their hearts, you will have missed the Spirit. The earthly temple was left with not one stone left standing upon another (Lk 19:44); the heavenly Jerusalem awaits. Take no heed to the rabbis of Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified.

I have come in the name of My Father, and you do not receive Me.
If another comes in his own name, you will receive that one.
How are you able to believe, you who receive glory from one another,
and the glory which is from the only God you do not seek?

Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father;
there is one accusing you, Moses, in whom you have hoped.

For if you were believing Moses, you would then believe Me;
for that one wrote concerning Me.
but if you do not believe his writings,
how will you believe My words?

John 5:43-47

True & False Prophets

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy from their own hearts: ‘Hear the word of the LORD!’ Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!”
Ezekiel 13:1-3

God calls false the prophet who sees his own visions, feels his own feelings, and speaks his own thoughts. For a true prophet is the one who sees what God sees, feels what God feels, and speaks what God thinks.

The gulf of difference between these two is vast; and the standard by which the matter is measured is the holy scriptures – through which the word of the prophets is made known, and by which the prophets themselves are forged, for therein has the Spirit Of Prophecy expounded Himself. And the testimony of Jesus IS the Spirit of prophecy.

His prophets today, therefore, are those both in whom and through whom the very Christ of those scriptures’ testimony is found seeing, feeling, and speaking after God Himself.

Within these men, the Word of the Lord is not trapped upon the pages of its binding, nor confined within the interpretation of mere men, nor restrained even by the words of great men of history; but it is become a living fire in their bones to strike down and eviscerate the imperfect chatter of every foul spirit which continues to oppose it in their own day.

The spiritual authority that a man carries directly corresponds in measure to his current conformity to the revealed will of God – and that divine will is moving through time, the Spirit of Christ as a wind blowing each obedient man His way; yet, are we ourselves remaining in symphony with Him? For though we may stand upon the shoulders of giants, we must yet remain mindful that those who proclaim the word of the Lord in every age shall be judged alone according to the testimony of the Word Himself, Who is living and active.

And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:19-21

By this standard our words are measured.

The Living Word

For the word of God is quick, and powerfully working…
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV)

The true Word of the Lord is not the broad and bloated instrument that men have made it. For scarcely has the flaming sword left His mouth, and the thing He has decreed will be done. But the “word” going forth from the pulpits of our day is an indecisive word: it is a dull word for a dull ear. It is a word made by the people for the people – and knowhere is God Himself to be found in the process: He who is the True Word. The word of men cannot divide and discern the hearts like a freshly sharpened sword, nor can it winnow the wheat from the chaff. It quickens no man for the imminent Day of the Lord.

Those who wish to hear and speak only the familiar tidings of a paradigm long bereft of spiritual authority cannot stand against the great deception of this evil day. For there arises a darkness never before seen, and the supposed men of God for this hour hold not a spark to its mountainous tide. They even supress any light lest they themselves should become exposed; but they will not long get away with it. They are candles without wicks, lamps without oil. If they will not burn today, they will drown in this flood of filth and be burned tomorrow.

The prayer without discernment and the word without a divine decree has had its day – it has been weighed and measured, and it has been found grossly wanting. Let those who seek to obey the Lord no longer be desirous of such tepid trifles. The ear that fills itself merely with fond and comfortable sayings becomes dull of hearing; and only the word born of a holy fire can melt its wax.

Where the “quick and powerfully working” word of the Lord cannot go forth, His servants mourn.

O Lord, let your word for this hour be found inscribed on our hearts, traced by our steps, proclaimed by our lips. Let us not cease to hear Your voice – even where Your silence prevails – lest we sleep the sleep of death!

The Church & The Sign Of Jonah

“An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.”
Matthew 16:4

What the adulterous body of Christ requires is not a revival, but a resurrection. Yet a true resurrection requires the body to be fully dead. That which does not die cannot be raised. We think that we shall save the church by trying to keep her alive, when it is God Himself who seeks to complete her death. For “unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” We have before us a choice between the fellowship of man and the fellowship of God. We are so eager to postpone the inevitable, even unto the exclusion of ourselves from glory; but the body of Christ is comprised of those who will die to the elements of this world. Let us therefore abandon all hope in keeping ourselves alive in the world’s eyes, and let the Lord be pleased to crush our idolatrous spirit. The Spirit and power of God is unto those who so humble themselves, and He will raise them up.

So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.”
1 Corinthians 15:42-45

Souls of Men

I awoke to the sound (as it were) of that ruthless transaction which is the true commerce of this present world: the buying and selling of souls.

I am not sure which was more deafening: the sound of it, or the silence in what is called God’s house.

Ought they rather to be wailing over the souls of men? But these have put in their lot with the merchants of the earth, and they also profit by the trading of men’s souls.

And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her (fallen Babylon), because no one buys their cargo any more, cargo of gold, and silver, and of precious stone, and of pearls, and of fine linen, and of purple, and of silk, and of scarlet, and all thyine wood, and every ivory vessel, and every vessel of very precious wood, and of bronze, and of iron, and of marble, and cinnamon, and incenses, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine meal, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and of bodies and souls of men.
Revelation 18:11-13 (LITV)

Do not partake in her sins, lest you partake also in her plagues.

Children of Light in the Lord

The souls who love what glory the end shall reveal may rest confident under the shadow of threat, though former companions have fled. Their peace is rooted beyond today; and so it must be, for today the night is dark.

These are the children, the lights of the Father, whom this present darkness cannot overtake, traversing the road of sorrows into the dawn of a new day.

Discretion preserves them, understanding keeps them. The voice of their steps goes unheeded, except by the humble; and the keeping of their company denied, except by their kin in spirit.

Yet despair is not their song, nor is the dirge of this tired world echoed upon their tongues.

Through darkened glass their eyes behold what final triumph lies beyond the veil; for of that victory they have not only heard, but even already tasted, and the wondrous mystery of the ages has been made known to them.

In death, they have gained all; in life, their hope is manifest: Good tidings to the meek, wholeness to the broken, liberty to the captives, freedom to the bound. Sight for the blind, hearing for the deaf, speech for the mute, life for the dead.

From the throne of their King they carry one decree: that the hour and the time belong to Him, and the vengeance also. For His hand is ever at the ready, unto the swift ending of this age; but in the twilight of time, the hour is stayed for the sake of those in whom He shall reveal His delight.

To the mourning, He is comfort; to the lowly in ashes, He is the robe of splendor; to those who travail, the oil of joy; to the heavy in spirit, the garment of praise.

From His storehouse He is ready to pour forth deep waters, and fire to purge the dross.

Let the five be known from the ten, and let the watchful not look back when called from dusk into the brightness of the morning. For the eyes which see from heaven cannot remain shrouded in the grey clouds of earth, any more than the shadow can overcome that which casts its temporary form.

Discretion is the secret of the wise, and the fear of the Lord is the foundation of their peace.
His hand is a terror upon the rebellious; but His heaviness is the beloved dwelling place of the pure and humble.

Let the redeemed find no other resting place, for in Him no darkness can remain in them.

For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:8-10

Of Jezebel

Of Jezebel,

That unchaste spirit; that bearer of treacherous tales, whose council is a field of snares, whose words are the undoing of faith: that burdener of the good conscience, that tormentor of the upright soul.

May she and her children find no pleasure in her works; for what she has whispered in the dark will be published in the light, and the despairing cry of many righteous will be turned into shouts of victory. Our eyes will only behold the God of our Hope, and our ears will only delight in the words of HIS mouth.

The wagging of her tongue will no longer be considered, and the poison of her lips will no longer find an audience among us; but the Lord Himself will cause her to be cast out from the assembly, and her exposure will be an astonishment to many. They will say, “Is this she, whose sorceries troubled us, whose threatenings made us tremble and fear?”

When no man heeds her, all her sorceries are in vain, and all her threatenings fall to the ground empty. When all the righteous become as one holy city fearing the Lord, she will not be able to enter its gates, nor go into the houses of its noblemen. But the bed of her seductions will be placed in the open field, and the shameful who leave the city to lie with her will be clearly seen.

In reaping she is devoured by the uncleanness which she has sown, and with the unclean her name will be blotted out from all memory. Her fall will be mocked from on high, and her destruction laughed at from the throne of heaven. Then the Lord’s fury will overtake her with those whom she seduced, and none shall mourn her passing.

Let not your heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she has cast down many wounded: indeed, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 7:25-27

A Lamentation In Hope

Originally written February 10, 2015

The Lord utters His voice before His army, for His camp is exceedingly great; He who executes His word is powerful. For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome: who can endure it?
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and He relents over disaster.
Who knows whether He will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord your God?
Blow the trumpet in Zion; consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly; gather the people. Consecrate the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even nursing infants. Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber.
Between the porch and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, “Spare your people, O Lord, and make not your heritage a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?'”
THEN the Lord became jealous for His land and had pity on His people.

Joel 2:11-18


Where are your people, O Lord?
Where is the sound of their weeping vanished to?
Who shall minister unto the Lord; who shall enter the holy place?
The proud have received their reward; but the glory of God is revealed in the humble: the light of His good countenance is seen upon those that still fear Him.


Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that He has made to dwell in us”? But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.
James 4:5-10


Unto what end does this people puff themselves up by the fruitless works of man, forsaking faithfulness to God?
How long will they walk in the path of their own counsel, which only hastens its travelers to be destroyed with the wicked?
Will this people not be turned back to the paths of righteousness?

Their reckoning has not tarried, it is even upon them, yet they do not take notice, no, they cannot see what the Lord is working in their very midst. For those who refuse to hear the voice of the Lord will not forsake their stubbornness: they deceive themselves, insisting that they have not fallen away.

The severity of His warning is denied among this people; they trample upon His messengers.
But a remnant of the faithful still remains, and the Lord will sustain His obedient ones in the midst of adversity.

How can any man truly obey the Most High if he neither discerns His Word nor hears His voice? The working of His Spirit has been overruled by the deeds of the backslidden: they are proud to quench Him, supposing that they have attained greater knowledge than He who created all things.
They say among themselves, “Surely His council is clouded, and He is now obliged to bless our own paths.”

Unto such men the Spirit of Life is a stench; and now provoked, He removes all former wisdom from their midst, that they may sleep soundly in the accursed bed which they have made for themselves.
The chambers of their minds echo with vain plots of selfish ambition, and the word of the Lord finds no entrance into their souls. His Spirit is as the searching dove which finds no solid ground upon which to set foot.

Therefore another spirit gives them unction, and they speak forth boastful things from the mouth of the adversary, still presuming themselves to serve the Most High.

And they do not repent of their wickedness, for they do not fear Him; His ways have become foolishness to them.
The thief came to steal the word from their hearts; and now he has obtained the service of their ignorance and evil deeds, so that their children also are left in the wake of their desolation, ready to be swallowed up by the widening mouth of hell.
See how they waned and became utterly dry, as a river bed without any flowing spring! For the water of life found no course through them on account of their iniquities. When the Lord called them to be seperated unto Him, their slumber only deepened.
Their mouths pour forth the bitterness of their souls, they esteem only themselves and mock the judgements of God.

The stork in the heavens knows her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord…
“…Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among those that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down,” says the Lord.
Jeremiah 8:7, 12


They declare themselves to be held in the Lord’s highest favor; but truly they are accursed, not knowing that their eyes have been darkened and their ears stopped from receiving the truth.

They will see Abel’s offering being accepted by God and their own rejected, yet deny that it is God who so judges them; and so they will seek to destroy the righteous, even in the name of the Righteous One.
They will make the drunkenness of the great whore their own drunkenness, and her sorcery and her fornication their delight. Into her madness they will descend, and by her madness they will kill the righteous.

But the blood of the saints, who by the precious blood of Christ and the Spirit of adoption were made one with Him, will be spilled unto their own sanctification in Him; and the wrath of the jealousy of the Lord will overtake those who slaughter His people, upon whose heads is truly their own blood condemning them.

Let not the faithful be taken in fear or astonishment, for these things must come to pass just as He has told us.


Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Daniel 12:10


You, O Lord, are merciful and have taught your remnant to stand upon the Rock, that they be not shaken. Deliver your children from the hand of the adversary!
May there rise up a worthy host, clothed in the garments of righteousness.

Through the fires of refining we shall obtain victory eternal in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give of the hidden manna, and I will give to him a white stone, with a new name written on it which no one knows except the one who receives it.
Revelation 2:17
