Jesse and I have been seeking the Lord intensely for more than a month in response to things He’s been telling us. Earlier in the week, I wrote a summary of what He has said. I then wrote this miniature version (below) yesterday, and we’ve been praying about whether we were supposed to post it. This morning we sat in awe as we heard confirmation after confirmation of what I’d written, so we will share this short clip for now:
The Lord is saying that many are dressing the wounds of the Nation and of many of His people as if they are not serious. Many are prophesying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace. But the Lord says that the wounds of our Nation and many of His people are incurable apart from wholeheartedly returning to follow Him. Our nation is on course for devastation; He’s given us some very sobering and frightening words over the past month or more as we’ve sought Him. Yet, when I ask Him if there is still time, still hope, He has said, “It’s not too late.”
By God’s mercy and grace we still have the opportunity to turn back to Him and see that course altered (I don’t know how long that window of time is). But the course being altered requires His people being “altar”ed ~ putting our whole lives on the altar to Him. Lukewarm Christianity and compromise with the world must be purged from the church. The church must awaken from its sleep, break free from all that distracts us from His purposes, and come out of all darkness fully into the Light to become the mighty army for the Lord He has called us to be.
The hour is late, the darkness is great, but we were born and chosen for such a time as this. We’re called to arise and shine for Him with His grace and His Truth by the power of His Spirit. He’s calling for TOTAL commitment, consecration, and fierce determination to live purchased/redeemed/blood bought lives for Him, following Him and His Word no matter the cost. (much more to this…still praying about whether we are to share the longer version)
Seek, inquire for, and require the Lord while He may be found [claiming Him by necessity and by right]; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, and mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7
