6/26/08 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
This question was asked of The Lord: Lord, what do you think of Todd Bentley and all these megachurches?
Thus says The Lord: No more shall My people call out My name, and then run after men in authority, seeking after the vain glory wrought within the churches of men! No more shall they run greedily after vain glory, or heap up vanities to themselves, in MY name! For they have done a detestable thing in My sight! Lo, I have beheld their hearts, and within them I have seen their vanity, vanities on top of vanities and many vain deceits!... Woe to the churches of men who seek after vain glories, and build themselves up by vanity and greed! Woe to them! For they shall be the first to be thrown down! They shall be brought down to the ground, they shall no more stand!
Look, My sons and daughters, look at all these detestable things wrought within the churches of men, and tell Me, what do you see? What do you see, beloved? What have they done to My name?!... Woe to these people of excess! Woe to all these churches of men, who pollute My name and steal from My glory! For they build great churches of brick and wood, magnificent buildings of concrete and steel, yet the poor cry at the doors!
Yes, they build great and extravagant houses,
They amplify their voices like the wind,
Yet the cause of the widow and
The fatherless goes unheard!...
Shall I not recompense them for all these things?!
Shall I not abase all these self-appointed leaders,
These charlatans, in front of many witnesses?!...
Shall I not come upon them quickly
And strip them of all their clothes,
Leaving them naked and desolate?!
Behold, I shall be terrible to them, yes, I shall be a terror unto them, when I sweep across the land and destroy all these houses which bear My name! For My anger is kindled, and My face is set hard against them! No more shall they seduce My bride and rape My daughters! No more shall they cause My children to sin! FOR I, MYSELF, HAVE SEEN IT!
My sons and daughters, listen to My voice and give heed to My spirit. For I tell you the truth, if these great and extravagant churches were to call for the Holy Spirit in truth, and I did send it in the fullness of My strength, none would stand, all would fall down. Thus I did not send it, nor has My presence been among them, for I do not know them. All is vanity and vain glory, corruption by flattery, filthy pretense for evil gain. For in My presence all fall down and give Me glory; from the righteous to the wicked, all shall fall down and give Me glory.
For who can stand before The Lord Most High? Who?! Not this man! For he has lifted up his head, and taken it upon himself to speak in My name, though I have not sent him. Therefore I shall surely humble him, and he shall be severely abased in the sight of many witnesses. For I alone uplift, and I alone abase, says The Lord.
Thus says The Lord: The light has gone out of the churches of men, and My hand is removed. Therefore what remains, and what spirit dwells there? Deceptions clothed in falsehoods, whitewashed and covered over in purple and scarlet, doctrines of demons! Therefore prepare, all you who remain in My love, for the time is at hand; the Trumpet is blowing and the warning is sent down. Yet those in your land cover their ears and will not listen; indeed, they hate the sound of this Trumpet and refuse to give heed! Thus I shall be terrible to them, and nature shall rise up in its fury and fight against them!
Yet The Lord is not without mercy, for all these things are but a call to awake. For your land and its people sleep; behold, they lie down in beds of wickedness, embracing sins of every kind. And those among the churches slumber also, with all these self-appointed prophets, pastors and preachers lulling them to sleep, though the storm rages.
Behold, sin inundates the streets and alleyways, even to the broadways, a great deluge of wickedness; the surge of which has come and shall not be turned back, until its pinnacle is reached and that written is accomplished. And behold, the eyes of many shall be opened in that day, and they shall see. Yes, they shall call out and choose Righteousness, and I Myself will save them out of all their troubles; I shall surely deliver them from the mouth of the dragon. Then they will know, I AM THE LORD.
Therefore, My servants, again I say to you,
Turn away from this world and prepare!...
Call out to your beloved
And speak to them My name,
Give a shout to your kindred and countrymen;
Blow the Trumpet and sound the alarm!...
For the Days of Sorrow are here
And the Day of The Lord is upon you;
Behold, it waits at the door
And is about to come in...
Says The Lord.
