I began my day with The LORD and especially prayed that The LORD would judge my heart, motives, and every part of me.
Thus far it has been a day of remembrance BUT suddenly I had Words flooding my mind and soul, and I begged God to show me if something was wrong with me!
I reminded myself of all He has done for me and suddenly in desperation, I asked HIM, “Please take me back to my first love and Judge me!”
I asked Him to judge me! Judgment must come to The House of God first and we must seek God with all our heart asking if there is anything in us that we are avoiding or if there is outright deceit and deception in us!
While I prayed I began to see many different people that are paralyzed by fear, and others who are totally out of control spiritually, physically, and emotionally in The Church. The Church needs to return to God THEN resist the devil and he will flee.
God revealed to me that the body is out of focus and in some parts totally blind. (Revelation 3:17 HE wants our total focus to remain on him and not man.
While writing, I heard this scripture and the part that stood out to me below;
“They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and The LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.” Ezekiel 13:6 KJV.
The LORD is showing me how wayward The Church has become. She is depending on herself and others to give them hope instead of God!
There are many that are depending on others who will come to confirm Prophetic Words! Instead of seeking The LORD and getting it straight from him, we have relied on others’ Words or previous Words for a different time!
The Church has become lackadaisical, lazy, and blind while they think what they see, depend, and rely on is God when it’s not!
This is a very big issue with God! *Study Ezekiel 13*
Many in The Church have let go of their first love relationship with The LORD and have been compromised through the stronghold of pride, error, and deception.
Their focus is dangerously off base! There are many who have laid down their Bible, study time, and prayer life trusting and believing what is happening in the news media and what other prophets/ ministers are saying!
God confirms His Words out of the mouths of two or three witnesses, however, when there is pride, error, and deception it can spread to larger groups.
God speaks His Words to His servants but that doesn’t mean that we believe or follow them blindly, we must pray and war over every Word we get! (The blind will lead the blind?)
Praying together with others is wonderful but when we begin to depend on their Words or experiences, we begin to put a man in the place of God.
As I write this I can feel The Hand of God upon me, however, I provoke you! Take NOT my Words blindly — but get before God and prove the origin of those Words!
This thing is not about removing, but restoring every person back to their first love relationship with GOD!
And part of that is making sure you hear and receive correctly! We must understand that Words, in general, are powerful, but if they are Prophetic Words there is greater accountability and responsibility of the speaker, writer, and to ourselves so that we are sure to receive or reject a Word.
To become lazy or too busy in seeking God and that we define everything based on what others say is dangerous!
We each must keep God first and depend on no one! God let me know clearly that He is angry with those in His Church who are trusting in the lives of other prophets and other ministers instead of trusting HIM first!
He let me know seriously, that we cannot trust other prophets or ministers to keep us straight with God.
There are groups and movements that are leaning on each other so hard without first spending quality time before The LORD themselves!
We must ask and seek God to reveal if this is true about ourselves! We cannot put any of our trust in man for it will pierce our hand. Our trust must be totally in God.
We must listen to the Word that tells us to return to our first love! We must seek Him in fasting, weeping, and prayer and keep ourselves pure in heart, mind, body, and soul. (Joel 2:12)
We Are Accountable to God With Our Whole Lives!
We cannot depend on another to be the go-between, for Christ Jesus is our mediator of the new covenant and He is our lawyer in the courtroom.
There is a revival at hand NOW of turning ourselves back to God and trusting him like we did when we first found him. This demands repentance and a turning back to God fully!
“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” Revelation 2:4-5 KJV.
Many go from one prophet to another; one newscast to another. YOU will learn to get your own comfort from the comforter and get your own News and directions from the director.
God is faithful who will give you the confirmation you need but you must hear from HIM first.
We all need a place of accountability and a place where we can be excepted as we are and seen for who we are.
The LORD makes manifest our gifting and he makes room for us. Those who God connects to us will be like-minded and there will be peace among them.
However, right now The LORD wants us to truly repent from all pride, error, deception, rebellion, witchcraft, idolatry, stubbornness, and blindness.
And as you seek The LORD, if there are any more sins, He is faithful to reveal it.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
