“And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter,” Revelation 10:10.
“Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel,” Proverbs 20:17.
“30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. 31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. 32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight,” Numbers 13:30-33.
“Your land will rise and fall. Do you think that words of promise will make everything great again?
You have swallowed a pill that in the beginning may seem like the right pill to swallow, but in the end it will prove to be bitter.
Bitterness will come to many, for what you have been promised comes from the hand of deceit.
You would receive something promised from the heart of someone who has been corrupted.
You are a people of little to no discernment. The ax will be laid to the tree and on that day only a stump will remain.
Your promises are given from one hand, and yet dolled out by the other one in secret.
For you are a people who have looked for a Savior who would lead you to the promised land.
But if you remember Joshua led the spies into the land and he saw that they were but grasshoppers amid the people of the land.
There are giants in the land now, but they are not giants of stature. They are the giants of disbelief.
They are the giants of avarice. They are the giants of close-mindedness. Many have chosen to follow after someone who exemplifies these qualities.
Choose this day how you fight the giants that are around you.”
