5/27/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord of Hosts, to the generation of wrath: You know not the anger of The Lord, nor of My jealousy which burns in the fierceness of My wrath! For the Way of The Lord is not known, and the atrocities committed against the innocent you have hidden from your eyes; you refuse to see!
Therefore calamity shall not cease from before your eyes, and destruction shall increase in every corner! Destruction from on high shall increase before you, and the wrath of God shall chase you from behind! The strength of your heart shall give way, and you shall lie down heavily, until death comes to take you and darkness closes in.
And still the Way of The Lord is not known. Not one has heard the weeping of The Holy One, no one thirsts. Who has come out to drink? Who has eaten from this Tree? Who, among this lying generation, has opened their mouth in truth?! Who among you sees? Who among you knows? My messengers know, and My prophets have seen; behold, upon their lips I have placed the Word of Truth.
And still the Way of The Lord is not known! For the prophets of The Lord are hated, and those who call of themselves Christian persecute and slander My messengers without cause! Behold, My faithful servants are hated by My own people, and in the world they are cast off with rarely a mention! For the Way of The Lord is not known, and the fear of The Lord is forgotten!... This generation has no love for God in their hearts!
Therefore, thus says The Lord God: Behold the generation of My wrath! Look upon this great multitude of wicked and deceived peoples; look deep into this darkness! Take a lantern and search, go from house to house, and see if there is one who remembers The Way! See if there are any who know Me, if there is one who embraces Me as I truly am!
And yet the people say, “Where has all this darkness come from, and for what cause has all this violence come upon us? For what reason is all this devastation come upon us?!” Is this not the Day which was spoken of? Says The Lord. Is this not the Day prophesied throughout the generations, even from the beginning, that it should come? Is this not the Day of Clouds and Thick Darkness?! For I tell you the truth, it has come, all have entered in!
Behold, the outcry of the prophets has
Come forth, the Word of The Lord is here!...
It comes to pass before your eyes,
It increases and fills the earth!...
Therefore, hear the Word of The Lord and give heed!
Hear the Word of The Lord from aforetime, and of this day!
Hear the Call and the Testimony, and tremble
In fear at the Proclamation of The Lord!...
For the decree is sent down;
Judgment is set and ready to be poured out!
Lo, calamity has broken forth already, announcing the coming of The Holy One. His messengers prepare His way before Him, the earth trembles at His nearness. Lo, His hands gather His flock together, and His soft voice calls to His lambs... Behold, the house is broken into, yet who is aware of it?
Behold, the bundles are tied and set in their places, and still the people mock! And those called Christian say, “Are we not the chosen? Yes, we are the elect of God”... Woe, I say to you! Woe to you and all your arrogant houses; you have surely deceived yourselves!
Bow down therefore and humble yourselves,
Heed the call and depart from
Your filthy houses, and repent!...
Forsake all these man-made doctrines and
Perverse traditions, put away all these pagan holidays!...
STOP POLLUTING MY NAME AND MY GLORY!...
Stand apart from those who persecute My messengers
And mock My promises, and I may yet receive you!
Am I not The Lord God who sees, The One who knows? Yet My people hide their faces from Me, and cover their shame in an effort to appear righteous before men. Do I not search the hearts and minds, even to the innermost? Therefore who is it you seek to please, and for what cause do you wear all this fine apparel? For what reason do you wear these masks and cover your heads? For what purpose is this masquerade?!
For I tell you the truth, the sluggard is at ease among you, the so-called faithful worship themselves, and the supposed devout follow after men!
Am I not The Lord? And if I am The Lord your God, then how is it you seek after vain glories and refuse to accept Me as I am?! For vanity is a rope, and pride builds the gallows. Is not Haman your brother and Cain your close friend? And of their reward you have made yourselves fully worthy!
Is not wisdom justified by her children and wickedness the delight of fools? For I tell you the truth, death is at the door and the pit is dug deep, Gei-Hinnom waits patiently and Sheol is made ready, and the wicked shall be cast into it! THE EVIL OF HEART SHALL SURELY DESCEND INTO IT!
For death and wickedness are married, and the grave is never full. By evil deeds do the wicked consummate their union, by their every word do they confirm their agreement, until the fire consumes them and darkness hides them away. For the place of the deceased is known, yet those consumed by the fire shall never be found. They shall cease to exist, their names blotted out forever.
Hear, therefore, the bitter grievance of The Lord: The heart of man has grown increasingly wicked; he seeks only to steal, kill and destroy. His ravenous appetite is never abated, and his lusts are never full. For his hunger only increases in the pursuit of evil gain, his thirst deepening with every drop of blood he spills... Therefore he shall surely have his fill! Evil shall reign and wickedness shall overtake him! I shall give him blood to drink, and in the midst of his fullness he shall starve! Behold, I shall oppress the kingdoms of men day and night, and the hand of The Lord shall weigh heavily upon them! And at the height of their transgression, I SHALL TREAD THEM DOWN!
Behold, as grapes in the winepress of the wrath
Of My fury, I shall tread them down!...
The back of the high man shall be bent,
And the neck of the evil man shall be broken...
ALL thrones, dominions, principalities
And powers shall be bowed down!...
FOR I AM THE ONLY LORD OF HOSTS!
