“Do you see how your world is changing? For many years I have told you of My coming judgment on your nation if you don’t turn from your wicked ways. Soon you will see that I mean what I say. Your nation has laughed at and scorned Me far too long. I brought it into being so that My Word would go forth to all the nations of the world. Now others must be sent to you, so that those who have ears to hear will be able to listen to My call to them. You embrace every other idol and false religion, making a way for it to prosper, while My church falls asleep as if in a drunken stupor.
"For many years, I have called those of you who are Mine to separate yourselves from the world. I have called you to be a holy people. You have become so cold that you feel I will hold off My judgment. How wrong you are. Judgment has already begun. It started in My church a while ago. Some of you have repented and are seeking Me with all of your hearts. You will overcome in the coming horrible times. Some of you are just starting to wake from your slumber. I encourage you to set aside everything of this world with an unparalleled urgency.
"I am about to move fast. Things will all change suddenly and you must be ready. To those of you who do not heed My warnings, I will leave you in your foolish thinking. You will be numb until it is too late, and then you will have no ability to overcome. You will perish with your hardened hearts. Some of you will even curse Me, believing that I have forgotten you. Turn now. Very little time is left.”
Proverbs 19:27 AMP
Cease, my son, to hear instruction only to ignore it and stray from the words of knowledge.
Isaiah 9:1 AMP
But [in the midst of judgment there is the promise and the certainty of the Lord’s deliverance…
Isaiah 48:3 NIV
“I foretold the former things long ago, My mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.”
Hosea 13:6 NIV
“When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.”
In these Father’s Heart messages, we have seen the many sides of a loving Father calling to those who desire more of Him. Over the years, there have been two reoccurring messages. The Lord has been calling His church to a walk of holiness, and He has been telling of impending judgment on this nation if it doesn’t repent.
What has become very obvious is that our nation has not turned from its wicked ways, even with the many warnings and opportunities to do so. As soon as disaster of any kind strikes, the people cry out to the Lord for a short period of time. Once the peril has subsided, we forget our God and go on with the wickedness. It almost seems to increase.
Look how we are embracing the occult, rampant sex, and open, horrific murders. Even young children are killing each other, sometimes just to see what it feels like.
I am convinced that we are in the times predicted years ago. We are under judgment for our sin as a nation and will never be the same again. Instead of turning to God, we are gladly giving our freedoms away because it will supposedly be safer for us.
We, as the church of Jesus Christ, must see and hear what the Lord is saying in this time. We will be needed to lead others to Christ when they come to the end of themselves.
Are you ready to be a willing vessel in the hands of the Lord, fit for His use, loving deeper and caring more? You and I are needed. Now is the time to decide to surrender fully.
