“You can never take back anything that you do. You can be forgiven. You can repent of your actions and “make good” the harm that you have done; but every action that you take, every word that you say, is important for you to notice. It is the benchmark of the depth of your association with Me. Who you are - how deeply you care and what your priorities are - is proclaimed to others by your words and by what you do when you are under extreme pressure, faced with grave danger, or have loss of control.
"In the season ahead, I am stripping away false faces from My children. I am exposing dishonest hearts and improper motives. I am allowing base, carnal emotions to rise to the surface, so that they can be seen for what they are. It is My cleansing process before I move in power through My people. Great opportunities to repent will be available to those who will be My leaders and ministers. My truth is about to prevail.”
Luke 6:45-46 AMP
45) The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.
46) Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
The Lord is requiring His church to actually be who we have said we are all along. Many “self-imposed” leaders have guided sheep right into a ditch with their false teachings and fake spirituality. Because of our blindness to truth and our unwillingness to seek God’s truth for ourselves, we dumb sheep have often followed them, emulating actions and mouthing lying words with the same wrong spirit.
I believe that the Lord is welding His church together. To do so, wolves in sheep’s clothing must be exposed for who they really are first, so that His sheep will know His sheep. It is a bridal call to holiness in every area of our lives.
Thrown away friends, shots fired at wounded soldiers, and destructive, malicious behavior - one to another - is not representative of Jesus. His true ambassadors will begin to function as He would, say only what He wants to say, all in union with His heart.
Cleanse me, Lord,
